Exercise 1: Getting to know a Card
Shuffle your tarot deck and choose a card. Look at the image for a while. Ask yourself these questions:
What story do I see in the picture?
What emotions do I feel?
How do the details in the picture reinforce those ideas?
What is the overall mood?
What do I think this card might mean?
When you are through, go to the book description for that card and read through the key words/interpretation. Compare these to your impressions. Do not be concerned if your ideas do not match mine. Your intuition is working and already giving you some unique insights! You can repeat this exercise with as many cards as you like.
Exercise 2: Answers from No Where
A fun way to exercise intuition and insight
Try this exercise when you're in a library or bookstore. Think about a problem that concerns you. Close your eyes, and suggest silently to your Inner Guide that you are seeking advice. Ask it to help you learn what you need to know.
Now, wander freely through the aisles. Avoid noticing where you are; just trust your inner promptings to guide you. When you feel ready, pick up a book and open to a page. Read the entire page, and try to relate what is there to your problem.
You may be surprised to find just what you needed. If the information doesn't seem related, pretend the message is in a code that you must decipher. Look for a subtle meaning. Meaning is everywhere - literally at your fingertips - but you must seek it out.
