Non-Practitioner Gifting Cards?
Hi all! I literally just made an account so that I could ask this question. So a very close friend of mine reads Tarot, as far as I know she has two decks. She doesn't subscribe to the idea that a deck should be gifted, so she bought hers herself, but she does call them "sassy" pretty often. I want to gift her a deck for her birthday that might have a kinder attitude.
The issue is, I don't practice. I identify as an Apatheist, meaning I don't put any stock or care in any form of religion or spirituality. This isn't to say I disbelieve in the power of Tarot, but I treat it like I treat any other belief of anyone else: with the consideration that as far as I know, this can be 100% true and should be treated with respect, even if I don't personally subscribe to it.
So my question is, what should I do when trying to gift her a deck? I'm going to look at some decks at my local metaphysical shop today before I bother ordering anything online. Are there certain things I should do to make sure the energy isn't compromised? She isn't worried about other people touching her cards, so that's fine. I'm generally a Negative Nancy, so while I have the cards in my possession should I only handle them when I'm having positive thoughts? Would wishing them well and asking them to treat her kindly mean anything since I don't practice?
Thank you guys so much! I just want the best for her and I want to make sure I don't accidentally mess up her gift.
