If this guy wore you out emotionally, in the long term he would suck all the goodness out of you. If it is meant to be, it is meant to be. Sometimes though, it just hurts too much because the person in whom you were prepared to invest your life and your love, turns out to be someone you didn't think they were. From experience, I have to suggest to you that you need to give yourself time on this one. I have every confidence that you WILL have another relationship but if you can, develop a relationship with someone whose main priority is YOU and not themselves. I learned the hard way that the love of my life was selfish, self interested and had so many issues with himself, he would have taken all I had to give and more. I would have stagnated; he would have thrived. It still hurts like hell but I have met someone who is so giving, so kind and so spiritual, I wonder where my life would be, had I not met him. I only met this new person because I went to classes to learn about reiki and healing. If I had had the misfortune to still be with the first bloke, I dread to think what I would have missed out on. So take heart. The future is not yet written. Go out there and engage with life and with proper, normal people who are not energy hoovers or psychic hoovers. Take care x

RE: Captain: Reading Please
RE: I've never felt this much pain
I empathise with so much of what you have said with regards to the pain. I too was planning a house, future, all sorts with someone who, the night before we were due to move in together, called the whole thing off out of the blue. He has since had no contact with me and treats me as though I have done something awful - he won't have anything to do with me at all. We were both married (yes, I know, but it happens). We were leaving our spouses on the same day and basically I left and he stayed. I was left with nothing; he was left with everything insofar as he was persuaded to give his marriage another chance. My own fault, some may say, but we went in to this together and he bailed. A coward. A liar. The pain I feel has made me want to take my life and every day is a struggle to put one foot in front of another. They say time heals. Whatever. Can't see it. It's been 6 months and the pain is as raw now as it was. I can only advise you to do what I am trying to do to move forwards, and fill your life with friends, hobbies, new experiences and courage. How can he have left me high and dry? He could have bailed so many, many times. We never argued; we told each other we were soul mates. I'll never trust anyone again for a long, long time and I don't know whether to love him or hate him. So I understand your pain and I understand the roller coaster you are experiencing. Again, my advice is to take one step forward. It will feel like walking through treacle in concrete wellingtons, but move forward. I wish you well. Some people are just bastards. x
Hermetic tarot meanings
Hi. I am new to Tarot. I have a Rider Waite deck but someone bought me a Hermetic deck and it seems to be more finely tuned into me, based on the couple of readings I have done using information from tarot.com, but it does cost. I am looking for a book or something online which I can refer to, to gain an understanding of the hermetic, if anyone has any ideas please.
I have looked on the internet already and looked on amazon, but without any joy.
Any guidance appreciated,
RE: THE TAROT LEARNING CIRCLE
Hi folks - I have been out all day and so much has been said! At the risk of going back a step, I'd like to answer a question about the Hermetic deck - Yes, it is black and white. I very much like the idea of us practicing on each other. It could be hugely embarrassing, but I suppose that is the way we learn, by making mistakes and also, importantly, by learning to trust.
Btw, I think the letters TPG are awesome and uber-cool!!!
Excellent! TPG x
RE: THE TAROT LEARNING CIRCLE
This is a most useful thread for everyone who is trying to learn, so good on you! In answer to what some have alluded to, I have started a journal but I will try picking the cards out instead of just taking them off the top. I am not sure I have shuffled them yet! lol! I will look out for the King of Swords when I get that far!
Can I just ask, do you think I am better off doing my interpretations of one deck at a time, or could I do one card from each deck, ie one from the Hermetic and one from the RW?
I really think that the idea of LOAPs for me to practice a reading on her gets me thinking 'Oh no! I'm not that good'! There is alot of faith, confidence and trust in the cards, isn't there - which is fine but I wondered if anyone else felt unsure of themselves getting it right? More practice needed by me, I think!
Please keep it coming! x
RE: THE TAROT LEARNING CIRCLE
Hi - I am following your thread with interest. I have just been bought a Hermetic Tarot deck by the lady who reads my Tarots (the reason why she bought it me is another story!!!). She said I should go through the major cards and record what I felt they were 'saying', which I am gradually doing. Then, she said, go to the book and see if anything you felt, matches. I am ages away from using this deck, so I have bought myself a Rider Waite deck.
I found the explanations above to be useful. Is there any advice anyone would give to take the next step with these cards? And should I practise on myself first? I'm not quite sure how (or if?) I am going to remember all the meanings to the cards. I feel as though I am putting a tentative toe into a very large pond!
RE: Intuition or Just Nothing
Hi there. In my limited experience, there are all sorts of intuition, like Breze1 says. I think that the most you can do, is to be involved as a friend would be, in supporting the new family. Intuition might mean that there might be a couple of hiccoughs ahead and that you will be needed as a friend, supporting the family. They might not be serious problems, maybe just a cold that the baby has, but again I do agree with Breze1 that the continuous learning curve of intuition, is our judging when, if and how our intuition is accurate. I, too, have seen photos where you just get the feeling that there will be a negative outcome. I have dismissed them and thought, well, I will be there for them if they need me and that is all I can do about that. One time, though, I had an out of body experience, and I know it sounds weird, but I was at a village prayer meeting and we were praying for a baby which was not yet born, but which was expected to be severely handicapped when born and that it wouldn't survive. (the mum had been prescribed a medicine for a blood disorder before she or the doctor knew she was pregnant). Anyway, I felt, during prayer, that I was there, with the baby. Sounds crazy, I know. But I was in there. I was completely not in the room any more. And the baby was emanating so much light and so much love, reassuring me that everything would be alright. I came out of it, and the prayer reader was still talking, so I closed my eyes again, hoping to recreate what I had just experienced. But no, nothing happened. Anyway, I took this information to the prayer meeting leader because I didn't feel I could tell this woman her baby was going to be ok against the odds, just because I had had a weird experience that I didn't understand. You can probably guess the rest - the baby turned out to be fine. And no, I never did tell the mother. This intutuitive episode was much stronger than the others I had had. I have never had one like it since - and that was 20 years ago but I remember it like yesterday. I don't know if any of this actually helps you or confuses you but I am posting it in the hope that it helps you qualify what you are feeling. x
RE: Intuition or Just Nothing
Has anyone else commented on the picture - did the friend, for example, say that the picture quality was or wasn't good? Was it taken on a phone or a camera? Maybe if you asked to see the same picture again, or a different picture, then this would help you to decide. I do empathise with you; I am in the same boat and I know how difficult it is to work out where the message/feeling comes from. What has helped me in the past, has been to review what I have seen/experienced and write it down. Don't think I will have been much help, but at least you know other people reading your post, experience similar happenings. I personally would, like I say, keep it to myself and if you want to be shown more evidence, I would 'ask' for it, but then you need to know what you would do with the information anyway?
RE: WHAT ARE YOUR ANGEL SIGNS ?
Hi kookish - thank you so much for your message....it was so touching. The nice thing is that, even though I live in York, England, and you are thousands of miles away, we both know we are not alone in what we are going through, partly because of the Angel and Tarot connection, but also because we are connected by a thread of friendship borne of shared experience.
Take care. Tell your Mum that, if my Mum had known, she would have been here today because she would have got the help she needed. Tell her we all get aches and pains, but that at least her medical team are aware of what they need to do. Please also give her a smile from me xx
