Shadow Work: Speaking to Spirit Guides
Another important part of learning tarot is the energy you bring to a reading. In shadow work, your energy tends to become heavy and sometimes a bit dark. Make sure you’re cleansing your tarot deck after a reading to get rid of any residual bad energy when working with shadow tarot. A way to help align yourself when doing shadow work is to speak with your spirit guides.
Spirit guides are forces of good that are here to help. Everyone has different beliefs on spirit guides, but an easy way to think of them is like a guardian angel for tarot. Even people that have been reading tarot for years will reach out for guidance from time to time, whether they believe they are reaching out to a literal angel or a version of their Higher Self.
