Excerpts from the interview…
Who inspired you to pursue a career in tarot card reading? It was totally unplanned. Initially, I helped friends and family through various issues but I never thought of making it a full-time profession. When I met my mentor at a leading exhibition, she recognized my skills and asked me to consider it. So, I believe it was divine powers that made way for me. What is your success mantra? I believe that you have to put your sweat and blood in everything so as to grow in your career and to achieve results. Above all, I am lucky to have divine blessings around that keep bestowing their bliss upon me. Also, the continued support of loved ones, family, friends and in-laws allow me to follow my passion.
How do you maintain a balance between your personal and professional life? My family is my utmost priority and it is because of them that I have emerged as a professional tarot reader. I manage my schedule by keeping readings on appointment basis. As far as working hours are concerned, I have kept my office timings till early
evening so that I can dedicate the rest of the evening to my kids and family.
Tell us about the challenges that you have faced. Sometimes, healers do come across difficult and skeptic clients. They seem to sap our energy and keep asking for repeated readings. So, it is advisable to make them understand that it is necessary to have a four to six week gap before another reading. At times, we also come across clients who keep on saying, “Things are not happening.” Such clients should gently be reminded that to get things manifested, we need to take proper and desired action.
What is your message to young and aspiring tarot readers? When I stepped into the field as a professional tarot reader, I noticed how different it was from general counselling sessions which I did for family and friends. It is necessary to have a set time limit for readings. Next, develop your counselling skills because the more you enhance them, the more they will improve. A safe reading environment should also be created. At times, when your client gets emotional, remain calm and be patient. And when you are done, always end your reading on a positive note.
What are your plans for the future? I want people to understand the real meaning of living life. It would give me immense pleasure if I could serve humanity in some way. Also, I want to grow with respect to my psychic readings so that one day, I can publish my book.
