In my journal, I sometimes write notes or letters to Self (with a capital S), that which is my personal wholeness, or totality that holds all the original capacities, potentials, and resources of our humanness (to quote Bill Plotkin). I tell that part of me what’s really on my mind and in my heart. I ask Self for guidance through dreams or through making me more conscious of the signs around me. And It responds. I receive strong dreams, open books to relevant random passages, and allow the subtle changing of the seasons to teach me.
Yesterday, I got the idea that these notes to Self would be a great way for people to prepare for their tarot sessions with me. The day before hir appointment, a client could write a Dear Self letter about what’s up for them. Just before bed, s/he could read it several times. The next morning, s/he would record any dreams, thoughts, or feelings that emerged for them during the night and upon waking. We could use hir Dear Self letter and hir dream to set an intent or focus for hir tarot session. It could be a very rich experience.
What do you think, folks?
