If you ask a painter to find flaws in his masterpiece; perhaps he won’t be able to. But you will be able to do that, because it’s not your painting. You look at it through the glass of neutrality and objectivity. Not through your emotions.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be ‘mad’ or ‘mentally unstable’ to seek counseling or therapy.
Counselors function much like doctors-they listen to your symptoms, diagnose what the problem and the source is. But, instead of giving medicines, they give you suggestions so that you can look at your situation from a different perspective!
You can be stressed or anxious over your job, family matters, relationship issues, emotional issues etc and you can still seek the help of a counselor who is trained to help you to cope with your situation better.
Yes, we do have our family members and friends who are always there for us in trying times.
Yet, sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we need an objective view.
A counselor is that objective, unbiased, neutral person, who gives you a different perspective of your overall situation so that you can evaluate it objectively.
A counseling session is nothing more than just being with you in the presence of someone else, giving yourself the time and attention that you need at a point in time.
It involves a commitment to your own betterment and a desire to bring about changes in your life through objective and unbiased guidance.
If you think going to a counselor will make you mad or certifies you as ‘mad’, then we counselors are the most insane people on this earth!
Tarot cards that have been used since the 1940’s to help people unravel the mysteries surrounding their present and future.
These cards and their readings have been instrumental in helping people to get in touch with themselves during confusing and distressing times. Each card has a distinct meaning that somehow connects to our life and circumstances in some way or the other. These cards are spread out in a manner, which creates a narration of our life - what happened, what is happening at the moment and what can be done to improve the situation.
Do they create miracles?
Yes, they do! But, in a logical way and within our own selves. When we are able to look at tough times and our own selves with a different perspective, we begin to create our own miracles!
These tarot cards are not ‘life changing’, if we don’t wish to change ourselves.
Advaitya says that we are our own reality. The world is merely an illusion.
Therefore, these cards help us to get in touch with the dormant aspects of our self so that we can initiate and create the necessary changes that our life and situation demands.
Tarot cards can help you:
- To understand what is going on now
- What you need to change to improve the situation
- How your thoughts, emotions and actions can affect your future
- What you can do for yourself, for a relaxed mind, healthy body and better life
Do these cards really work?
What is the world without a little faith?
Where does the ‘self’ go, if you don’t trust yourself?
Tarot works, if you allow it to work.
The cards are merely a reflection of what is going on in our life, in our minds. A good tarot card reader is able to give us a clear picture about the events taking place and likely to take place in our life. Accordingly, he/she is able to then guide us and offer remedial approaches.
However, for the readings to be helpful, one must be receptive and free of any biases. Once, we are able to understand the messages the cards are sending out to us, we are able to better organise ourselves and plan ahead.
An important thing to know and remember is that tarot is not magic, voo-doo or anything out of this world!
These are cards that speak to us in the language of pictures, about our own thoughts, emotions and life.
