Tarot study and psychology . Share your experience .
I study psychology and would like to research phenomenon of tarot readings.
I did study tarot a lot and perceive it from psychological point of view – it can work as an instrument for personal growth for sure. Cause many symbols are coded with in this system and it does talk to our subconscious mind. You totally can get out some client's thoughts and feelings which was suppressed faster than doing a few sessions.
Basically Tarot is like a language. To learn to read it you need to learn meanings of symbols and colours and apply it to situation.You learn letters – cards – and then connect it into a story – spread. You need to have a very good imaginative and artistic skill to do it. Some tarot decks are really incredible and hold a amazing stories on how it was made.
- Here is why it talks to our unconscious – there is such a thing as a collective unconsious theory from Carl Gustav Jung
According to Jung, the human collective unconscious is populated by*** instincts, as well as by archetypes: ancient primal symbols such as The Great Mother, the Wise Old Man, the Shadow), the Tower, Water, and the Tree of Life.[
2) Second part is – 'How can it tell you about Past?– There is such a thing as Morphic Fields. Widely used in psychology for "family constalation"
"Family constellations, also known as Systemic Constellations or Systemic Family Constellations is a group process which looks into hidden familial or group patterns of behavior and works towards the acceptance of the past and having healthier dynamics."
Tarot reader – or anyone basically with creative mind can tap into this field – and lets say 'read' – information about you , your family , your patterns, from there. The more creative you are easier it is to connect to that pseudo – 'network' .
Biologist Sheldrake says : Morphic resonance is the influence of previous structures of activity on subsequent similar structures of activity organized by morphic fields. It enables memories to pass across both space and time from the past. <…> What this means is that all self-organizing systems, such as molecules, crystals, cells, plants, animals and animal societies, have a collective memory on which each individual draws and to which it contributes. In its most general sense this hypothesis implies that the so-called laws of nature are more like habits. -( wasn't 100% proved.)
Professional readers are natural psychologists – they can tap into this fields without years of school.Psychologist works with human's psycho-energyes(Libido) everyday and LEARN how to tap into it fields. WASNT PROVED – just my theory. Let me know what you think.Also as they gain experience and sometimes can tell a lot about a person just by looks and manner of speech – ALSO cause a lot of our unconscious programs are coded in a manner of language we use.
3) Third part – CAN IT TELL YOU THE FUTURE? Here im 50/50.
"According to the block universe theory, the universe is a giant block of all the things that ever happen at any time and at any place. On this view, the past, present and future all exist — and are equally real."
I think – when you work a lot of your unconscious mind – trying to use language of symbols, talk to people everyday and tap into people's unconscious, you are gaining practice to work with such energies – you can tell about future as well. Because right here where you sit – information of what 'was' ,' is', 'will be' is coded. You are just not able to tap into it.
It is somewhere on the edge of psychology, quantum physics and biology.
