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.
