Tarot Readings in Williamsburg 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 Williamsburg is fulfilling.
You're in the break room with a new co-worker you don't know very well, and that person strikes up a conversation. You're a little guarded, and on top of that, you're an introvert. Is this someone you can trust enough to want to build a connection? How can you tell?
As it turns out, science has got your back. You can find out plenty about a person with one magic question with the power of a Vulcan mind meld. But before I give it to you, here's some quick background on the research.
How positively a person you're getting to know sees other people has been linked to how happy, kindhearted, and emotionally stable that person is. This is according to 2010 research by Wake Forest University psychology professor Dustin Wood.
"Your perceptions of others reveal so much about your own personality. Seeing others positively reveals our own positive traits," says Wood, lead author of the study.
The study also found that how positively you see other people shows how satisfied you are with your own life, and how much you are liked by others. Now I'm itching to give you the magic question for that new co-worker in the break room you're not sure about, but bear with me.
On the flip side, if someone's tendency is to speak and describe others in negative terms (even if the person being described does have negative traits), it's a bigger tip off that the person you're speaking with will have higher levels of narcissism and antisocial behavior.
Here's Wood: "A huge suite of negative personality traits are associated with viewing others negatively. The simple tendency to see people negatively indicates a greater likelihood of depression and various personality disorders."
The Magic Question
Here's where it gets really interesting. Asking that new co-worker in the break room you're not sure about what he or she thinks about someone else...reveals much about his or her own personality. The reason? People tend to see more of their own qualities in others.
Now that you've got your secret weapon, let's get back to the break room scene with that new co-worker. Your question should sound something like this: "So tell me, how are you liking it here so far?" Followed by, "How do you like working with [co-worker/boss name]?"
You'll find the study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 2010.
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.
Learning Tarot: The Sun, Card 19 - Success and Mastery
I come from areally mixed family.
All my siblings, asidefrom my little brother, we all look different sowe're all different colors of the rainbow and we allgrew up together in the same house and I guess that thatwas a really cool thing.
I'm really glad that thathappened to me because it gave me the chance to notthink in the same way that a lot of people have beenconditioned to think.
I think that's a supercool thing and I wish the world would bemore like that.
So my mom, when I wasborn, she wanted to name me Starley, she said thatshe knew I was gonna be a famous singer.
My mom is very intuitiveand she's almost psychic.
I can't even explain it.
She always knows whensomething's gonna go wrong or like she just, she hasan inkling about something and she'll say somethingand then it would happened and we'd all be like "ohwe should've listened to mom" ya know? She's really funny thatway so when I was born she wanted to name me Starleyand my dad said no.
My dad said "We're notnaming her Starley, that's just an airy fairy name,like who wants to have their kid as Starley,that's a terrible name" My mom said "No she's gonnabe famous, we have to call her Starley, she's gonnabe a great singer" So she put her foot down andbasically, when the mom wants to name the kid likeyou can't really argue with the mom.
She birthed me, she wentthrough all the hours, all that shit so shenamed me Starley.
She turned outto be right.
When I got older and Istarted to sing a lot I realized that thatwas a good thing.
Because in the beginningI used to get teased at school and stuff and Ireally kind of resented that that was my name.
But later on I wasreally happy about it.
I guess my mom is the dreamerand the encourager.
She's the one where, if mydad tells me a song's not good enough, my mom said "Stopif Clifford, it's beautiful.
Like why do you haveto.
" You know but my dad's very practical.
So she's the dreamer andshe's the one that I'll go to for the nurturing side.
My dad's the one thatI'll go to for the hard criticism, the kindof like constructive criticism but youknow, the truth.
The hard truth.
So my dad, I'd be next tohim talking about it and we'd try to go throughstrategies of how "okay well what's the next move"we always used to say "what's the next move"That was a thing that we used to talk about.
To sort of make an newlittle strategy and figure out "okay so now maybe Ineed to make these couple of songs and reach out tothat person" and I'd spend an hour every dayreaching out to people.
So my dad was the one thatI sort of used to go to for advice andeverything like that.
Things thatwere practical.
And even when I was at thepoint when I was gonna quit, even him at thatpoint started to think "Yeah it's the rightthing" Even though it probably made him feelreally sad that it wasn't working out, he wasthinking the same thing like "maybe it's time"So yeah, you probably understand by now that formy parents right now, they are so ecstaticabout life.
I think they feel soproud that something they believed in for so longand everyone else didn't believe, after a whilepeople were just like "Nah you guys, you're a littlecrazy.
" So now they just feel really proud thatthey stuck with me throughout everything.
Yeah they couldn't be happier Ithink so it's cool.
