Do you do readings?

  1. I was just curious if anyone does any tarot, rune, crystal ball, dream analysis, I Ching, tea leaves, or other kinds readings?

    Anyone want to exchange readings, or do readings? Just for fun, of course.

    Added: maybe if someone wants a reading, they could ask, and if someone wants to give a reading, they could answer?

    haha...

    ok, youda...
    I am proficient in Tarot Cards, Tea Leaves, Scrying (aka, crystal balls), palmistry, and, I'm learning about runes...

    but, my true calling with divination, has got to lay in scrying... but, I tend to do it with smoke from incense, or the steam off my tea... (good stuff...) I use my crystal alot though too... and, I read lots and lots of tarot cards.... (its portable...), and I play with a pendulum.... pendulums play with you though... its hard to describe...

    I'm willing to trade readings...

    The last tarot reading I had done was so negative throughout that the person doing it was apologizing the whole time. Unfortunately it was accurate! That was about 6 yrs. ago and not sure if I want to try again (denial? me? nahhhh)

    I have two sets of Tarot cards.....one given to me by a friend and the other my husband acquired somewhere, but as of now they are put away because I have not yet learned how to read them, but I am hopeful that someday I will be able to do so....Yeti you are quite talented in your abilities and I have to commend you because I am sure it took alot of studying and working to become proficient is all of those things.....

    Hey, Yeti! I saw your post about a dream pillow on another thread, and thought 'there's a person after my own heart!'

    -----------

    I do astrology, runes (hey, I'm scandinavian!) and I'm an empath. Used to do tarot, but it's been a long time.

    ------------

    baglady, I've had one of those readings, too. And, unfortunately, mine was accurate at the time. There's also ways to deal with those kinds of "energy" so that they don't hit you so harshly.

    -------------------

    nursegoodguy: the first thing you must understand is that it's not your fault. Stop trying to figure out what's wrong with you, because it isn't you that's the problem. You just have a different way of looking at things. In many ways, you're an innocent who has never really believed or understood how people can be cruel or unfeeling to each other. Because you always expect the world to be as good and kind-hearted as you are, you are always surprised and hurt by the callousness you see around you. You're an empath, too. You pick up the emotions of those around you and really take to heart the suffering of others. You are such a gentle soul! Not something a guy wants to hear, but you know it's true. Try some meditation. Use your earphones with some of the music you love so much, and let your mind wander to the answers. Most people couldn't do this without instruction, but you will know intuitively how to do this, to find healing for yourself. Take care. You're truly one of the best.

    Wow! How'd you know I was blaming myself for something... Actually it's like being on a path with a fork in it... I'm in the process of getting off the familiar path and have started my journey down the other path...
    Anybody see anything down that path that I am now on?

    nursegoodguy: you're blocking me. I kinda stunned you when I picked up on the blaming, and now you're shielding yourself, pulling in, worried that I'll see things you don't want anyone to see. I can't answer your question unless you let me.

    Okay it just has to do with relationship stuff... (Of course)
    When you end a relationship you have feelings of guilt and self blame, (somewhat) and responsibility! (I do take my responsibilities very seriously). It is especially a bit confusing when you are in the process of starting a new relationship...
    How's my new relationship gonna work out?
    I think Great!
    But when will it all be worked out?
    It's not exactly a typical sort of relationship...
    I'm more of a teacher/advisor and protector and student... but mainly a source of love for someone who has never known it, for a person who has only had people in their life that wanted to manipulate them and use them... And it's not just one type of love... It's father brother friend lover...
    And it's strange but I don't really see the old relationship as being "over"... (Sort of complicated...)
    It just seems like all was meant to happen in a certain sort of way?
    The new relationship has many obstacles... but...
    Have you ever felt truly "connected" to another person? Like you've always been a part of their life? I think sometimes we do run into people that we have known on a different level and when it happens you just know it...
    It's not just that feeling of emphatuation with something new... I am able to distiguish the feelings.
