I do not think that they should have any writing on them, and that they should be (free will) for you to inspire your will.
Have you attempted to use scents, herbs, etc?
When using candles, one must focus, and use the correct color of candle.
Some sugguest that you make your own candles, but when in doubt, use white for purity.
My granny had the gift of prophesy, but she would use anger to activate it!
He predictions were so accurate, many were afraid of her, even her very own family!
I never wanted to be feared like that, so I slowly embraced my psychic beliefs.
Yet, my journey was almost complete, until my setback.
Now my gift is stunted ...brewing perhaps, because I still do receive a tingle, but it is much weaker than before.
Being dead for that amount of time, I did developed a keen alertness and awareness to my surroundings, but fear played a big part in slowing focusing to a higher level.
Yet, I always felt like I could call upon it to come to full circle, when I was more prepared.
Another painful state of my life, I was just about ready, I do not fall into total depression from the regression, because as mentioned, I am receiving updates, and restored memory.
I have accepted that I must knock out any fears, so I am taking it slow, I do not want to decrease, but increase, when the thoughts of all the research and knowledge that I had received during the years gone by.
The tarot way is only one way that I am using to aid me on this returned journey.
I am also using crystals and candles to increase my psychic ability.
You do have to think outside of the box.
Naturally, I would love for my psychic gifts to be poured to me from the sky, but I want them to be authentic, and I have always had the need to actually work for something, making me feel like I earned what I received.
Also, touching certain objects can help pick up your psychic gifts.
I often go to places where they have used or old things, walk around 'touching' different objects, seeking my electric charge.
When I was very young, I put a hairpin into an electric socket, and was actually dead for more than 15 minutes.
My granny came home( she was born with a caul/veil over her face) she continued to rub me all over my body, and I was returned to this world of the physical.
I can only believe, that from this, I have increased electric impressions, and I feel an energy all around me, sometimes stronger than others.
Also wondering, if you have tried meditation to aid you?
Do you feel that you are grounded?
...before, I would say that I was perhaps 75% complete in my tarot/psychic wisdom.
I hope you do reconsider the Hexagram, I much prefer the ones that show a visual, with colors, and numbers, it is like having (2) open doors to the knowledge.
Or along the lines of, 'Should your read the book first, or watch the movie first?' way of thinking.
And I must confess, much of my former stored researched-knowledge was geared towords the knowlege of the culture that was more advanced, and also the study of religions.
I did keep many notes, which has helped me to recover.
After many tests, seeing more than my fair share of neurologists, and 45 minutes x-ray scans, I was made aware that my 35$ memory loss was not gone, only moved to other parts of my brain.
That gave me hope, so now I attempt activation of memory recall, and I have been given a gift of update.
Kind of like when you lose one of your (5) senses, if focused, you can magnify one or all of the other (4) senses.
But, you and I know that we have (6) senses, or perhaps more, and that sixth sense is very powerful and the key to Mindfulness.
I feel like I am in the same boat!
Psychic abilities run rampant in my family, but due to a partial stroke, I have lost certain abilities.
I myself have made recent purchases of ...The Essential Guide to The Tarot -David Fontana, and am a proud owner of The Pathfinder's Tarot cards( a beautiful tarot deck for self-discovery and finding your destiny)
Despite my many years of devoted connection here, my daily tarot card is still a mystery, because I am not able to perceive why my personal card for the day is going in same order with the numeric numbers, to me, it should be a mixing of numbers and the cards should not be in order.
I have memorized the daily Hexagrams until my eyes are almost bleeding, and great awareness has been accomplished there.
I seek knowledge turned wisdom, and the increased restoring of the knowledge that was removed from my memory.
Perhaps together, we can unlock said mysteries and take our proper place in the world of physchic enrichment.
I can perceive why you shall not deliver your special angel's name.
I also have a love for Angels.
Actually purchased two books so that I can feel closer to them.
Unknown to me, for many years, I had purchased many things that were Angel related, pens, cards, pictures,etc.
One day, a few years ago, I noticed that in every room, I had something Angel related.
In my bedroom, I personally made a picture of Archangel Michael.
Years ago, when I heard that an Angel was sent to help Jesus after his ordeal with satan, I felt that Angel was feminine, I believe that Gabriel is perhaps 100% feminine.
I much rather believe that there are masculine Angels.
I study Angels for each day, still, some Angels represent (2) or more days ...today being Friday, Maktiel ...I study each one of their colors, crystals, how they help, what they are good for healing, and so on.
I simply love everything about Angels, and they have inspired me to connected with my creative side, and I thank them by making cards in their honor.
Many years ago, I had embraced Astral Flight, but due to being on the wrong medications, I lost that ability.
I am constant in the attempt to relocate that ability that has been lost to me.
I go about my search in a different approach, for there has been no success in regaining what has been lost as well as stolen me.
