As I wrote in an earlier post here, I recently experimented with video readings. The reaction was fantastic; the people who received them all gave me positive feedback, referring to things like the “personal nature” of the readings, and how they enjoyed seeing the process of me actually doing the reading. So I’m very pleased to announce that video readings are now available to everyone! You’ll find them listed on the Order a Reading page.
So, what are the differences between the two types of readings I’m now offering, and which should you choose? It’s largely down to personal preference; but I wanted to describe some key features of each, to help you make a decision:
are easy to refer back to.
can easily be compared with subsequent or past readings.
are organized versions of my thought process.
are a record of your reading as I did it live.
are very personal – like a conversation between the two of us.
allow me to point to areas of cards to illustrate a point.
In addition, I’ve found that, simply put, some people find the written format easier to follow, whereas some find the video format easier to follow.
Finally, for those wanting a really comprehensive reading, I’ve also provided a combination written/video reading option, which gives you the best of both worlds at a discount price.
As some of you of you know, I really enjoy receiving feedback from my clients when I’ve done readings for them. I consider myself to always be learning, and getting comments is a big part of the learning process for me. Every so often, I get some feedback that reassures me that I’m on the right track, not just with what I’ve said in my reading, but with the way I present my readings too. I got such a message recently from Samantha Popp, one of the winners of a free reading I announced recently, praising me for my “professional” approach, and it reminded me that I should talk a little here about what you actually get when you come to me for a tarot reading.
I e-mail you a PDF document (so it’s readable and printable, regardless of platform and software you use) with your name, the date of the reading, your question and the cards I drew. Then there’s a photo of the actual layout of cards in your reading, so you can follow along with what comes next. I describe each card individually, drawing attention to the parts of the card that are relevant to the question. Then I summarize the entire layout and what it means in the context of your question.
My ultimate goal is always to show you exactly what I see in the cards; I think it’s more meaningful for you that way. I also hope that you’ll hold on to this document and refer to it now and in the future.
