Q What is the best way for me to cleanse my cards?
POLLY SHEARSMITH, CROYDON, SURREY
AFTER EACH reading, shuffle the deck and gently breathe out over the cards. Imagine them vibrant and revived and free. Here are some suggestions for further cleansing, but before you try them, talk to your tarot cards, tell them what you are doing and why. Always thank them for their service.
1 Place an amethyst crystal on top of the deck and leave for a few hours. even better, place in the rays of moonlight and leave overnight for a particularly powerful cleanse.
2 Smudge your deck with a sage stick or favourite incense. Imagine stuck energy being lifted upwards and away with the smoke.
3 Lay out your cards on the table and chime some cymbals or bells over them all to give them a thorough and instant cleanse using vibration. (this is my favourite cleansing practice).
