Channel the energy of this power couple in your manifesting journey, with tarot reader Tarotbella
Tarot has long been used as a tool for divination, prediction and analysis. The 78 cards reveal wisdoms built upon centuries of human experience, and crystals are even older – prehistoric, in fact. They have long been used as amplifiers, protectors and stimulators of energy and can change our moods by harmonising our aura in line with their own properties. Together, tarot and crystals can form an amazing ‘power couple’ in your manifesting rituals, bringing both insight and energy to your goals and ambitions and charging your dreams with clarity and real force!
Explore and inspire
My good friend Clare, a silver-smithing witch (bonearrow.com), and I have been exploring this relationship for our new tarot deck, out this October, called The Crystal Magic Tarot (put it on your shopping list as it’s something really beautiful and special). Clare has taught me a lot about crystals, how they work and how she uses them in her everyday life to manifest her intentions for business and in her personal life.
When Clare was first creating her jewellery business, she used tarot for guidance daily. She kept on pulling The Magician, which became her talisman for inspiration and reassurance, a nudge to pour her creativity into this endeavour and make things happen, versus waiting for inspiration or action – even if the only step was to hunt for people that might be her kind of customer on Instagram. Clare teamed her tarot pulls with crystals and carried a pyrite always, as well as placing jade next to her bed and putting a citrine next to her laptop when creating new jewellery designs.
These daily rituals helped Clare to move from a position of debt and uncertainty to having her own shop, hundreds of customers and being able to work for herself fulltime. Of course, it took sustained hard work, but the insight for action came from tarot and the energy for execution came from crystals. This power duo are the best allies in manifesting you can have – wisdom and power.
Harness the knowledge
We want everyone to be able to use these tools as life has been so tough for so many of us recently. We have poured all of our tarot and crystal knowledge into our new deck, which (although it can be used as a straightforward tarot deck) will also teach you how to use tarot and crystals together to manifest positive life changes (across any area of your life), just like Clare did! Our deck invites you to design, not just see, the future.
Now try something new
Align with your strengths
Here is a ritual you could try yourself with whatever crystal you have or like best along with your tarot cards. It is to simply ask the Universe to bring new opportunities and energy aligned with your unique talents and strengths.
1 Pull out the Ace of Wands card from your tarot deck and your favourite crystal (or, if you have a selection, a clear quartz or clear stone).
2 Sit with them quietly for a while, thinking about the mantra ‘I am open to the magic that a new beginning brings’. Say this out loud or silently in your head.
3 Put your card in front of you and hold onto your crystal, visualising magical energy swirling in the Universe around you, like golden orbs of lights, and being drawn towards you, attracted to you
like a welcoming beacon.
4 Visualise the orbs swirling closely and densely all around you. Imagine what kind of new beginnings they could offer, how things could change, how that version of your life might be. Live out a daydream.
5 Feel the crystal heating up in your hand, feel it absorbing your thoughts and hopeful energy and taking it to its core. Feel its vibrating tendrils aligning with the threads of your daydream.
6 When you feel ready, place the crystal on top of the tarot card so it too can absorb that energy and align with the dream. Take a moment to read up on the card’s meaning and apply that as your first piece of advice for activating your new beginning.
You may at this stage do a further tarot reading for yourself asking for direct guidance about how to make your dream come true. You could ask for a guiding principle to follow throughout this journey – who can help you, what your first step should be, what you may have to address or overcome, or what timescale your first milestone will be reached by?
7 Each morning, repeat your mantra and put your card in a place you can see it each day, for one week after this ritual (and longer if you wish, it’s up to you). Use your crystal for an energy boost, meditate with it to seek advice, to ask for ideas when you need creative solutions and to find the inner resources to achieve your goals. Your tarot and crystal team are backing you 100% – a cosmic task force!
