In comparison to the other practices this is easier and any individual may learn and use it for the betterments of once life.

First of all Ms. Mittal believes that a tarot reader must make their thoughts and behavior fully positive. He/She must listen with full attention and concentration to the complainant, who has come to the reader’s shelter, then pray sincerely and thereafter start tarot reading.

Tarot reading should never in anger or out of any emotion. It should be totally impartial. Tarot reader should never touch the cards in anger else all the feelings are transmitted to the cards. All these arts function with prayer and feelings. We must have good and beautiful feelings. Tarot reader plays a role of healer therefore he must not confuse the patient but give him suitable guidance because tarot is not a forecast based science but a spiritual knowledge for human welfare.
