Exploring the Ethics of Divination and the best interest of the
Learning to navigate the terrain of sharing enough but not too much is
a sensitive art. Being honest while avoiding harshness and yet getting
the message across in a clear, concise manner isn't always easy.
And how do you handle the client that simply doesn't want to hear what
you have to say?
How do you handle the client who becomes overly reliant on you?
How do you best prepare yourself to take on the role of confidant,
counselor, advisor, and fortune teller without internalizing the
clients' issues yourself?
In other words, how do you remain sensitive to the clients' needs
while still practicing Psychic Self Defense?
What's the practical application of being the messenger but
maintaining professional distance?
How do you determine whether readers are ethical?
And much can be said about a reader's own understanding of his or her
role in the client's life. It must be made clear that a tarot reader
is not to take the place of a licensed physician, attorney, or
financial advisor. Even is a reader does happen to have expertise in a
particular field, it must be made clear to the client which hat the
reader is wearing when dispensing advice.
Further, is certification advisable or even necessary?
Does the client care whether a reader is certified?
And what makes a Board qualified to provide certification?
