In Psychic Tarot, Antenucci and Howard tell us that integrating the wisdom from a reading is the biggest challenge of divination. They say it is the most challenging because it requires change (breaking patterns and forming new habits)…we humans aren’t great at that. Here is their advice for facilitating integration:
In truth, you may begin to lose some of the insights you were given almost as soon as the reading is over. Shortly after a reading, capture the essence of what initially rang true for you. First impressions are always important. What surprised you? Might you feel, think, or act differently with these new perspectives?
Let the reading linger for the next forty-eight hours. Do not make any life decisions based on the reading during this time. There may be unconscious shifts, so pay attention to dreams, new ideas, surplus energy, or new ways of perceiving life.
After the forty-eight hour incubation period, see if there is still one truth that “sparkles” on its own. Is there one action you could commit to based on this wisdom? What one truth is ready to surface on a more conscious level? How might you incorporate this sacred information to nourish your life?
