Tarot Readings in Shepherdsville are performed by someone that is trained in how to read and interpret the symbolism of the Tarot Cards. Tarot Readers do not necessarily have to possess any psychic or supernatural gifts to perform Tarot Readings. It is more of a left-brain science (logical side of the brain) much like Astrology. I have found the best Tarot Readers are also initiates of the Golden Dawn Kabbalah*.
Having a Psychic Tarot Reading in Shepherdsville is fulfilling.
Empathy might seem like a nice-to-have extra, a touchy-feely quality that's most important in personal relationships and being a nice person outside work, but expert after expert insists this most human of attributes is actually a business essential. Having empathy, they say, improves your leadership, teaches you to ask the right questions, boosts teamwork, allows you to understand your customers, and can even help you get a loan.
All of which is good to know, but do each of us have any control over the amount of empathy we feel? Is our ability to sympathize with others' something that's set in childhood and unlikely to be altered with life experience? Can you learn to get inside others' heads?
If anyone should know the answer to these questions it's Roman Krznaric. He is a founding faculty member of The School of Life in London, an empathy adviser to organizations like Oxfam and the United Nations, and a former teacher of sociology and politics at Cambridge University. Recently he shared the latest science on empathy with UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center.
"Empathy doesn't stop developing in childhood. We can nurture its growth throughout our lives--and we can use it as a radical force for social transformation," he writes. "Research in sociology, psychology, history--and my own studies of empathic personalities over the past 10 years--reveals how we can make empathy an attitude and a part of our daily lives." If you want to increase your empathy quotient, he suggests developing several habits, including these:
Getting Curious About Strangers
That guy across the train car isn't just a potential competitor for the one open seat, he's also an object lesson in empathy, Krznaric insists. "Highly empathic people (HEPs) have an insatiable curiosity about strangers. They will talk to the person sitting next to them on the bus, having retained that natural inquisitiveness we all had as children, but which society is so good at beating out of us," he writes. "Curiosity expands our empathy when we talk to people outside our usual social circle, encountering lives and world views very different from our own. Curiosity is good for us too: Happiness guru Martin Seligman identifies it as a key character strength that can enhance life satisfaction."
So how do you do curiosity right? Don't just chat about the weather or the local sports team. Instead, try to understand what makes other people tick--especially those who seem quite different from you. "Set yourself the challenge of having a conversation with one stranger every week. All it requires is courage," suggests Krznaric.
Listening and Being Vulnerable
Increased empathy only comes through interacting with others, so you want your conversations to be as deep and revealing as possible. In order to do that, you need to develop two interrelated skills, says Krznaric--radical listening and making yourself vulnerable.
"HEPs listen hard to others and do all they can to grasp their emotional state and needs, whether it is a friend who has just been diagnosed with cancer or a spouse who is upset at them for working late yet again," he writes, adding, "but listening is never enough. The second trait is to make ourselves vulnerable. Removing our masks and revealing our feelings to someone is vital for creating a strong empathic bond. Empathy is a two-way street."
Expanding Your Circle of Empathy
Empathizing with a poverty-stricken child or recently laid off friend probably comes naturally. The trick when it comes to increasing your empathy is to challenge yourself to see the perspective of those with whom you have less natural sympathy--perhaps even with your enemies. "A final trait of HEPs is that they do far more than empathize with the usual suspects," Krznaric says. "We also need to empathize with people whose beliefs we don't share."
What does this look like in practice? "If you are a campaigner on global warming, for instance, it may be worth trying to step into the shoes of oil company executives--understanding their thinking and motivations--if you want to devise effective strategies to shift them towards developing renewable energy."
This is also a particularly powerful approach for business leaders. "Bill Drayton, the renowned 'father of social entrepreneurship,' believes that … mastering empathy is the key business survival skill because it underpins successful teamwork and leadership," he points out.
Curious where you're starting from? Greater Good offers an empathy quiz to discover what base rate of empathy you have to work with.
Present day Tarot Cards draw most of their symbolism from the Kabbalah. If you want a Tarot Reading, you will want to ask the Tarot Reader if they have knowledge of the Kabbalah as well.
There are pros and cons to both; It is a matter of personal preference really which is better.
*The Kabbalah incidentally is a form of Jewish Mysticism that is
believed to have originated from Moses. However, Mystical Kabbalah is non-religious; it ties in all the Gods and Goddesses of the world. I am referring to Kabbalah, from the Golden Dawn System of thought, often called “Mystical Kabbalah” today. Writer’s such as: Dion Fortune, S.L. Macgregor Mathers, and Isreal Regardie disseminated the Mystical Kabbalah ideas through their early 1900 writings on the subject.
Tarot Cards - A Brief History of Tarot
guys namaste its kala and I'm here at afriend's house a little bit out in the country we've rigged up the camera she'shelped me rig up the camera you might hear some dogs run by beagles and theymay knock things over anyway so this is the reading for the upcoming week thisis the spirit message for this upcoming week which starts Monday and runsthrough Sunday hi so it's been very interesting trying to set up the filmingand so light keeps changing and I'm out in nature so I've got three differentcards so far gonna show you what those are in a second hope you had a beautifulweek and I'm gonna get my fuchsia cloth that I like to use when I'm filming mycards were blowing away it's just been a bit a bit tricky let's see okay so yeahI hope you had a beautiful week if you haven't watched my current video it goesthrough Sunday so you could watch that and see if itresonates for you alright so I've got my fuchsia cloth down and I have each Ixchel,Medicine Woman card we got the fairy deck goodbye to the oldhello to the new goodbye to the old hello to the new and in the Tarot we gotqueen of cups so just going to lay those out okay and I'm going to pull an angelcard as well so let me put these away these are thegoddess cards the Doreen Virtue so while I'm preparing to do the reading alrightthe spirit messages it's just for those of you who resonate with me sort ofgeneral themes that will be coming up in the upcoming week and so just what to beaware of hopefully helpful let's do the angel card so shuffle them right in theBox actually easier so take a breath with me just really Center yourselfletting go of all thoughts take a breath in exhale just tuning into your heartchakra in the center of the chest just saying what would spirit like you toknow as you listen to this reading letting your own intuition resonate ah wonderful we got the card of abundanceand actually I'd previously pulled the card awakening as well and I think thatblew away so so it was on the porch awakening so I like that I believe thatnothing is an accident so the fact that I pulled the second angel card of itit's abundant and that the first one was awakening so awakening abundance reallyreally nice so this week for some of us the queen of cups as women can representbeing very much in touch with our feminine nature being in touch with ouremotions our feelings and in a balanced way not being overly emotional you knownot being tossed around on the waters of emotion but being very balanced in touchwith our feelings with regards to people family friends just those around us andwhat's happening for for us what are our feelings so this is a really beautifulcard to get upright and for any men watching this can be your own innerokay and that's something I'm getting very interested in because we need moreof the Divine Feminine the positive beautiful aspects of the feminine thatboth men and women can embody but would typically be more embodied in women it'slike a yin-yang we all have a little bit of each in us so the queen of cups saysthat this week there's a sense of emotional balance and being sensitiveand it often can pertain to working with children or pets animals and anythingwe're very much we have to tap into our heart energy in being loving and beingcaring so it could be taking care of elders so to expand on that though as Isaid often the readings resonate very much for me and if you're watching themyou very likely are in the same resonance so this could be you as I saidladies or gentlemen this can be an aspect of you okayso feeling centered being emotionally balanced being in touch with yourfeelings in a beautiful way being in touch with your emotions and as I saidwe had the angel card of awakening and the angel card of abundanceso wakening abundance pretty literal pretty literal I had to go find thatawakening one on the porch which blown away but I think spirit wanted us to doso look at this card next very important and the centerpiece of the reading okayit's shell medicine woman you are a channel for divine healing power so thiscard for some of you will mean that you are healing personally but for many ofus for many of us it's going to be that you are being called as a healer okayand I know for me this card it literally says you know you are a healeryou channel divine energy right you can see the lightening there you're achannel and you can transmit divine energy down to help people on the planetand they feel that that's what I do with my work is you may know locally I dohealing shiatsu therapy and so this resonates very much so some of you outthere are being called to your healing practice to be a channeland don't feel that it's you doing the healing but that the divine energy ismoving through you and that you you are a conduit for it through your handshowever you heal if your body worker Reiki if you do tarot readings orpsychic readings I'm actually getting energetic feeling in my upper backhowever you help people however you help people to heal whether emotionally okayor whether literally physically healing maybe you're in chiropractic school oras I said maybe massage therapy school so you're being called to consider thathealing is something that you have a gift for that you could share withothers and so awakening abundance beautiful fairy I like this deck becauseit does have a multicultural aspect this is the fairy deck and says goodbye tothe old hello to the new so something is ending an old condition is ending foryou and the new is beginning so very much as I said that some of you arereally considering working as healers spiritual physical healers mentalhealers maybe psychotherapy maybe social work anything where you're reallysupporting others now it says you've finished one part of your life you'vefinished one part of your life and now a new and even better part is beginning soreally beautiful this week awakening abundance getting in touch with youremotions and tapping into your healing energy and as I said for some of you itmay be your own inner healing that will awaken a sense of abundance within youof course as we heal ourselves right of any feelings of inadequacy of not beinggood enough we start to open to abundance because abundance is very muchabout receiving okay you deserve to receive what gifts can you share thatothers need and will appreciate and want and thatyou can receive abundance for so very important issue to me and many of us asI said it seems very much about tapping into the inner feminine which we tend tothink about and healing the loving loving touch caring so I hope thatresonates with you for this week I feel like I'm going to pull see what else Ihave let me pull one more pero deck so you are awakening abundanceeither through your own inner healing of wounds that you have or throughbeginning your healing practice so I'd love to know which one resonates for youall you healers a spiritual folks out there and pull one more tarot card Ihave no idea what this is going to be okay that you know you can see the backI can't in fact let me shuffle again let me shuffle again and cut them again okay alright good so I've got the back I'mgoing to just pick hopefully this doesn't change my entire reading king of Wands reversed king of Wandsreversed so I'm going to say that you're completing an aspect I'm going to readthis as gives us reversed this sense of I'm going to read it as disorganizationinner disorganization inner unclarity right about what we wreck Secutorbecause it's a king what we were putting out in the world and the wand is energyand desire and because it's reversed I'm going to say that this is actuallypassing out of our lives and potentially that we have heard someone behind me sodistracted me but potentially that we have male in our life for the maleenergy that maybe was not allowing this blossoming that's happening but it'supside down I'm going to say that it was a negative where we were potentiallydoing too much trying to do too much to execute as a king we were trying toexecute too many different things and we were not seated firmly in our throne ourideas didn't get to blossom and I'm going to say that that's moving out ofour life given the rest of the reading awakening abundance from the Angels theTarot the queen of cups the goddess card excel medicine woman and the fairiessaying say goodbye to the old and hello to the new okay so do share with me howyour week goes and how this resonates for you and so we're going to close withjust coming
