Pick a Card, Any Card
Ok, so I’ll admit when I first head about this ‘pick a card’ tarot reading trend online, particularly on YouTube, I was wary. It just didn’t seem that feasible and seem to me to have a bit of the stink of a ‘choose your own adventure’ book from my childhood. I’m not sure how or why that’s a negative thing, however… I loved those books.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Something just didn’t click with me about the whole trend and, like anything else I can’t seem to understand my thinking on, I pondered it at length. My real opposition to it was a lack of variation coupled with a lack of direction, or so I perceived. Eventually, I’d come to think different.
My whole view, you see, is about results. When it comes down to it, ‘pick a card’ readings are an excellent way to read for a large group of people if a question is involved. The variety and chance insure that you are able to provide a wide audience with the beginnings of guidance.
For example, if the answer to a pick a card tarot reading satisfies the broad question you were asking, it gives you a direction to go with your issue at hand. Should you seek more guidance on the issue, the card you chose in your pick a card tarot reading would provide an excellent foundation to read the rest of your cards from.
It is in this light that The Tarot Tells will be producing a weekly video series on YouTube for a series we’re going to call… well… I’m not sure yet. We will be offering 5 card ‘pick a card’ videos based upon a variety of questions. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you would like asked; if we pick your question for the week you’ll be eligible for a special prize at the end of the month! What this prize will be exactly will be announced every week on our videos.
Now, this brings me to another point. Often I am stubborn and will think things without real reason. Me automatically writing off pick a card tarot reading for example. We’re all guilty of such write-offs in our life and it is a behavior that makes us all suffer as a whole. An idea should never be written off until given it’s due consideration.
If there is something you disagree with, take some time at the end of your day to ponder why. Each of those reasons that you come up with as to why, really look at. Are they reasonable? Logical? On par with yourself as a whole? The same is just as important for things you agree with as well. Do not simply accept the way you think on face value.
A mind should never be examined; to neglect to do so is only ignorance. Open minded is not the word for it. Logical introspection may be a better term, but I still don’t think that quite does it justice. What do you think? Let me know!
