Your writing can be a wonderful problem-solving tool. It's therapeutic. Try it.
In this journal exercise, you'll use Tarot and writing to solve a challenge in an area of your life. Your challenge may be related to your health, finances, relationships - just choose a challenge which is on your mind.
Start by writing your challenge in the form of a question. For example:
* "How can I find more time to write?";
* "How can I improve my relationship with _______?";
* "How can I get $_____ by ________ to pay off my credit card debt?";
* "How can I lose ten pounds by _______(date)?"
Now take out a Tarot deck, and shuffle the cards lightly, then choose a card.
No Tarot cards? Visit Aeclectic Tarot, choose a deck, and then choose any card from any deck as your answer to your question. Any card will do - one card will speak to you. :-)
Now start writing, just glance at the card, and write whatever comes to mind. You can: imagine the person or an object in the card is answering your question, tell a story, or just free write.
I love using Tarot to find creative solutions to challenges. Tarot always seems to work. Why and how is a mystery. Carl Jung believed Tarot worked by means of synchronicity.
Whatever. :-) Try writing and Tarot - let me know how it works for you in the Comments.
