Most Tarot Card readers do some type of centering exercise before doing a reading. These exercises can be elaborate or very simple. The method I use is in the latter category.
Before doing a reading I always shuffle the deck. While shuffling I ask God/Goddess to guide my words and allow me to assist the querent (or myself). Some people like to create an atmosphere by lighting candles, burning incense or doing a short meditation
before reading. Whatever your belief system, it is best to approach the cards from a feeling of calm, rather than in a harried, distracted way.
Pray, cast a circle, invoke the God/Goddess, meditate, do deep breathing exercises, or do whatever it is you do to get in touch with your center.
