Confidence in Tarot is a huge problem for many. Tarot can seem so complex and daunting. How are you supposed to throw a random number of cards and come up with a deep insightful answer to your issues? How do you join all the cards together to make a coherent message?
Gaining confidence in Tarot can come from many different areas. If you have been reading Tarot for a long time, you will naturally be more confident, but what if you are a beginner? How do you develop confidence in something you are learning? How can you feel it and how can you display that confidence to others?
Perhaps there is a super easy solution!
Do you remember Wonder Woman from the 80’s? Confident, powerful and kick ass and yet at the same time emphatic, loving and caring. What a combination! This lady did not have issues with confidence.
I am sure when it comes to Tarot you want to appear full of confidence without being overbearing or egotistical?
I want to introduce you to Amy Cuddy. She is a professor and researcher at Harvard Business school where she explores body language. Amy’s research shows that our body language can influence our hormones and feel good chemicals in our body. Amy’s research shows that body language can give us confidence or take it away.
Her remedy for people who need more confidence – stand in a power pose for a few minutes before you start something that feels terrifying. Research proves over and over again that body language shapes who you are and how you are perceived by others.
Amy Cuddy’s talk is 17 minutes of super interesting theory but if you just want to learn the Wonder Woman power pose watch the beginning and the end.
Next time you feel terrified and need some confidence in Tarot, stand in the Wonder Woman pose for two minutes in a private place. Feel the difference and then walk out into the world.
Till next time
