Combining Tarot with Meditation

Meditation Tip: combine it with Tarot!

These are definitely two great tastes that taste great together.

On the Tarot end, just pick a card that you want to consult with, or that has energy you want to coax into your life in greater quantities. Set the card up in front of you so that you can easily see it, and then focus on it until you feel you’ll be able to “see” it floating before you even when you close your eyes. When you reach that point, try actually closing them, and then just relax. See if anything comes to you from out of the card at all, either while you’re zoned out, or that night as you sleep and dream, or even the next day, in the form of synchronicities that seem related to the card.

On the meditation end, here’s a trick that really helps me: try humming.

I don’t mean throughout the entire experience. I just mean that as you relax into your meditative state, try a four-part breathing cycle rather than a two-cycle, “in-out” method. Instead, try “in-pause-out-pause,” and then repeat.

Except on the out-breaths, allow yourself to vocalize at low volume. Just hum whatever note wants to come out of you naturally. This isn’t singing, so don’t worry about sounding pretty or whatever. The idea is just to feel that vibration through your face, your head, and even in your body. Do the humming thing just, like, four times, even. You can go for more if you want, and try out different notes, too.

The point is that after you stop the humming and just sit quietly, you should hopefully find yourself way more likely to achieve real trance. Hell, I did this last night, and I started slipping into an actual lucid dream state! Sadly, I couldn’t keep it going, but there’s always next time!
