Tarot cards are a form of divination, which literally means working with the divine, or your higher self, which is the ultimate purpose of tarot cards.
While still holding the cards in your hand, “knock” or tap the pile of cards several times to spread your energy into the deck. Give the cards a thorough shuffle. Cut the cards into three piles and then put them into one pile again. Now you are ready to start the reading as you have jazzed up the cards.
