“Some people say that affirmations are lies we tell ourselves until they become true, but I think of them as truths we tell ourselves until we manifest them…Repeating an affirmation while you visualize or meditate upon an associated Tarot card helps to ‘transport’ it into your unconscious mind, which communicates using images and symbols, like Tarot cards do.” – From Tarot Affirmations
While the Tarot is often cast into the role as fortunetelling device or portable counselor, author James Ricklef reminds us that the cards speak in symbols—the language of the soul, as it were—making the Tarot an ideal vehicle for focused intent.
