Tarot can become exhausting for a number of reasons, Maybe you have many consecutive readings in a short span of time, you readings were highly emotional or charged, maybe you don’t know how or have forgotten to ground yourself before a reading. Whatever the reason, here is some information to help you with tarot exhaustion.
Some clients have more spiritual and emotional baggage than others. It is better to be safe first than sorry later. This can be in the form of a spiritual protection bubble or a crystals such as obsidian or quartz to help protect you from negative energy, or an amulet that you like wearing. So much of the time we as readers are on the receiving end of things that we forget that this heightened level of energy can cause us to utilize an unprecedented amount of energy. Before a tarot reading, and in between readings, imagine yourself surrounded by white light that is protecting you from any negative energy.
Grounding and Centering:
Grounding and centering is the absolutely essential first step for any energy working. It’s the thing that makes sure you are pulling the energy from the earth instead of depleting your own resources.
It can help to use affirmations, incantations, prayers or rituals before and after a tarot reading. It doesn’t really matter what you say, it is the intent that is important.
Release the Energy:
There are many ways you can release the energy between readings. I personally like to wash my hands, visualizing the soap clearing up any lingering energy and burn some incense or cigar to neutralize the area.
Meditation creates a sacred space in which we work. Even if you are alone, your work or reading space will be greatly enhanced by charging it with your meditation. Mediation is a good way to separate ourselves from what came before. Whether it be our busy day, the commute to work, other people’s energies, while preparing ourselves for what comes next. It literally gives us some “breathing space” and helps us regain our energy.
Listen to your own needs:
It is also a good idea to take a walk, get up, eat a snack, drink something, shake your body around, or stretch. Your emotional, mental, spiritual and physical safety come first.
