Lenormand Combinations For The Return Of An Ex

Is your ex coming back? Which Lenormand cards would predict the return of an ex-lover? Or, which combinations hint at the hope of a reconciliation? In this post, you’re going to learn the Lenormand combinations for the return of an ex!

As a full-time Lenormand teacher, I often get asked what the best cards are to predict the return of a lover. There are several Lenormand card combinations which hint that your ex-lover may return, however, I have narrowed down my top three combinations below.

Coffin And Birds

If you have separated from your ex a long time ago, then you should hope that you receive the Coffin card. This card on its own is a very good indication that something from your past is going to return in the present.

With the above interpretation in mind, I often take Coffin and the Birds card as a good combination to receive if you hand your ex to come back into your life. The Coffin symbolizes someone from the past, while the Birds represent the communication channels opening.

Heart And Stork

In these types of readings, the Heart card obviously symbolizes the person who you love (such as your ex). The Stork card represents this person returning into your life, so together they make a good combination.

However, in some cases, the Heart and Stork together can predict a change of heart. So, either you and your ex-lover are going to reconcile, or you are going to swiftly move on from them at some point in the future – both are these scenarios are positive signs for you.

Man/Woman And Rider

Finally, we have the Man or Woman card and the Rider card. The Significator cards represent either the seeker or the most important person in a seeker’s life. When combined with the Rider, this can mean that this person is going to quickly re-enter your life.

However, sometimes the significator cards can represent someone who is going to be important to you in the future. If this is the case, you will fall in love with someone who is not your ex in the future – they are galloping into your life as we speak. So, again, either way, these two cards predict a positive outcome.

That is all for the best Lenormand combinations which predict the return of an ex or a reconciliation!

Develop Precognition Abilities

Precognition is the ability to see the future and predict events. Precognition is the skill that divination practitioners and fortune tellers use to foresee things that are about to happen. If you develop precognition abilities, you can better predict likely outcomes in your love life, business projects, even sporting events.

Many people are raised to believe that only very gifted psychics or gypsy fortune tellers like myself have precognition – this is not true! Like all psychic abilities, everyone has precognitive abilities, but some people are naturally stronger than others. However, everyone can work on their precognitive abilities.

Below, I have given you some exercises which you can try to help you develop your psychic abilities and precognition. Give them a go and see how you get on!

Tip One: When The Phone Rings, Try To Predict Who Is Calling

One very simple thing you can do to develop your precognitive abilities is to try to project who you think will be on the other end of the house phone. Or, if your phone goes off in your pocket try to ‘sense’ who you think is trying to contact you.

Practicing this exercise will help you to gauge the energy of different people in your life. Then, when you have funny feelings or sense that something is going to happen you will be able to pinpoint the feeling to a precise individual. So, instead of just saying, “Something is going to happen” you will be able to say, “Something is going to happen to June”.

Tip Two: Predict Your Timeline

This is a pretty fun exercise. Before you go to bed, write down what you think is going to be on your social media timeline when you wake up. Who is going to post first? What are they going to say? How many new friend requests/followers are you going to have?

Again, this exercise will help you to predict events surrounding people, but you will be projecting what is going to happen in the future, not just the present as you would with the telephone calls.

Tip Three: Practice Divination To Develop Precognitive Abilities

If anything is going to increase your precognitive abilities, practicing divination will. By its very nature, divination will encourage you to make predictions all of the time. Precognition is like a muscle, the more you use it the more you build it!

You do not have to be super psychic to practice divination, anyone can. I recommend that you start with Lenormand cards as these are very good for building intuition and predicting general events. Using Lenormand, you can make very detailed predictions about your love life, career, even your social media platforms! You can find a free ‘Lenormand for Beginners’ guide at the end of this post.

Tip Four: Pay Attention To Intrusive Thoughts

I am a natural precog and I make predictions a lot. I even teach other people how to make predictions! One thing which I really notice about me is that before something or someone becomes a major feature in my life, I ‘notice’ them or become aware of their presence.

For example, I noticed this girl’s name on my social media a few weeks ago. We were not friends but she was friends with an associate of mine whom I followed on Instagram and I seen her comment on a post. I felt really, really drawn to her and had a proper snoop on her account (don’t judge me). A couple of days later, my friend’s (a different friend) boyfriend had left her for the girl whose account I was snooping on and it caused a big who ha. I guess I was drawn to her because she became relevant in my life.

Another example, months ago I remembered a reader (another blogger) which I used to be friends with but fell out with years ago. Her name just popped into my head so I went and snooped on her Facebook account (I know I need to get off my phone). I go scrolling and come to find out she had been going onto my website and stealing my images for her adverts!

You might think that you’re just being nosey, but if you feel really drawn to a person there is usually a reason for it and they will become relevant in the future. So, if you want to develop your precognition abilities you should pay attention to (and possibly even keep a record of) those intrusive thoughts.

Tip Five: Trust Yourself While You Develop Precognitive Abilities

This next tip is so cheesy but it really makes the difference when you’re working on your psychic development, especially your precognitive abilities. You have to trust yourself.

It goes back to what I said about a lot of people thinking that they have to be super psychic in order to practice divination and predict events. ANYONE can use divination and make predictions.

If you really want to develop precognitive abilities, if you want to take action instead of just thinking that you ‘might’ develop, I recommend that you go onto Amazon, order a ‘Lenormand deck’ and start making predictions on your general life, love life and other life areas which matter to you.

That’s all for how you can develop your precognitive abilities! I also have a free Lenormand for Beginners Guide. You can download that guide here

Gypsy Spreads With Lenormand

Hi diviners! In today’s post, we are going to do something a little different. I have not done many posts with Lenormand spreads so I thought I would show you how to perform Gypsy spreads with Lenormand cards. 

Being a Romany Gypsy fortune teller myself, I love a good Gypsy spread! I have a very particular way which I do my Gypsy spreads so I am going to adapt this for a Lenormand reading. Keep in mind that there are other ways to read Gypsy spreads and the way which I do mine for Tarot is different, but I want to show you how I would read one using Lenormand. 

Now, first things first, I am going to explain the difference between a column and a row. Because I didn’t listen in school and do not know which is horizontal and which is vertical, I am going to assume you were a rebel too and call them columns and rows instead! Rows go along the way, and columns go up and down. 

Usually, when I perform a Gypsy spread I would use twenty-five cards, but here I am only going to use fifteen because I feel that doing so makes it easier to highlight my point. So, I am going to put my cards out in five rows of three columns as shown. 

The cards are interpreted along the way in strings. Each row has its own meaning. The first represents work. The second row represents love. The third row represents family. The fourth row symbolizes friends and the final row represents spirituality.

This is a predictive reading, so the cards which appear in these rows are going to predict what is going to happen in these life areas. 

Example of Gypsy Spreads with Lenormand

If I was performing a real reading, I would first ask my ancestral spirits if they would help me to get the best results possible for my reading. Sometimes I am like, “PLEASE HELP ME INTERPRET THIS”! Haha 

Then, I would shuffle my cards and lay them out as shown (but in real life I would do five rows of five). I would then form my interpretation. My interpretation for this particular reading would be: 

Work: Lifestyle changes will help me finish my book (this is relevant to me because I was at the gym today and worried that going every day would mean I did not have the energy to get a certain project finished). 

Love: In my love life, I will socialize with an authoritative man (no idea what this is about!)

Family: A negative person will cause me long term problems (this applies to me as there are a lot of people in my family who are super negative). 

Friends: Good fortune in health will be experienced by a false friend (I have an idea what this is about because an ex-friend who I no longer speak to recently had a health scare. This predicts that it was a false alarm).  

Spirituality: Signs will be more consistent if discussed with other people (For personal reasons, I often interpret lilies as signs from spirits. Working with signs is a big part of my spirituality and one I teach in my psychic development courses. I have been discussing this more in my real life and on social media, so I see how this interpretation applies to both the present and the future). 

This reading was kind of interesting and I now wish that I had done the five rows with five columns! But performing the reading this way makes it easier to understand. If you would like to perform this Gypsy spread with five rows of five, try it and let us know how you get on!  

So, that is how you can read Gypsy Spreads with Lenormand cards!

Learn how to perform Gypsy spreads with Lenormand cards. If you're looking for a spread that predicts your general fortune (other than the Grand Tableau)

The Lenormand Pyramid Spread

Do you want a Lenormand card spread which you can use for readings where the seeker does not reveal their question? Maybe you usually use a Grand Tableau but you do not have enough space or time to perform this massive reading? BUT you seeker is just sitting there not saying anything? That is what the Lenormand Pyramid Spread is for!

The Pyramid Spread is a ten-card spread that reveals any issues that are on your seeker’s mind. Not only will this spread reveal what your seeker is thinking, but it will also give them some advice and predictions for the future. So, let’s get to it!

Let’s pretend that we are reading an imaginary seeker Diageo at a psychic fair. Diageo has come to our table for a reading, but he is sitting there not saying anything. We only have ten minutes to wow Diageo, so we decide to perform a Pyramid Spread.

Example of a Lenormand Pyramid Spread

First of all, we would ask our ancestors to help us perform the best reading possible for Diageo. We would also make sure to ask them to make sure that our reading is not completely shit! Then, we would shuffle our cards as normal and lay them out in a Pyramid Spread as shown:

Example of a spread
Cards are Fox; Fish & Home; Stork & Birds & Tower; Ship & Crossroads & Sun & Anchor.

The first card on the top of our Pyramid shows the main life area which causes Diageo concern. The second section of cards (the two cards) gives Diageo advice on how to proceed. The third row of cards (the three cards) tells Diageo about any outside or unknown factors which he may or may not consciously be aware of. And, finally, the base of the Pyramid reveals the future of the matter).

So, let’s form our interpretation!

Diageo’s main area of concern is his work, as shown by the Fox card. According to this reading, he needs to look for employment which makes him more financially comfortable (Fish + Home). He does not know this yet, but changes are taking place due to talks between officials at his place of employment (Stork + Birds + Tower). In the future, he will move in an alternate direction and find something more stable (Ship + Crossroads + Sun + Anchor).

Therefore, we can predict that Diageo is going to leave his current place of employment. One of the reasons why is because changes are going to happen at his work which he does not yet know about, but they are coming from ‘high up’ so he will have no control over them. However, his current job does not offer him the financial security which his future job will so he will be happier with his new place of employment.

That is it for how to perform a reading using the Lenormand Pyramid Spread. If you perform this reading for yourself, let me know how you get on through social media:

Gain Confidence As A Psychic Reader

How can you gain confidence as a psychic reader? Having anxiety before giving a psychic reading is perfectly normal. In fact, I would be worried if you weren’t anxious. Fear shows that you are excited, nervous, and eager to go in and do a good job. You want to please your clients; you pray that their reading fills them with hope for the future and happiness. Experiencing nerves before a reading is a positive sign. 

Sometimes, however, your nerves can be crippling. You may suffer from imposter syndrome and, ironically, dread doing what you love. In that case, I have compiled a list of tips for things you can try if self-doubt has frozen you into inaction. 

Relate To Others

I have been reading most of my life and for over 20 years. I am a Gypsy; my family are famous fortune tellers, and my gifts were encouraged when I was growing up. I have read celebrities, politicians, sportspeople, and had seekers from all over the world. At 24, I won an international award, Young Tarosophist of the Year, and I have been on the radio, in magazines, and on TV. 

I also shit myself before every reading. 

Yes, some would say that I have everything going for me. Most readers believe that I should be rolling in self-assurance. The reality is, that I still get that niggle of anxiety before every reading. Pretty certificates hanging on my wall do not shield me from self-doubt. At one point, I too struggle horribly and didn’t know how to gain confidence as a psychic reader.

I welcome my anxiety because I know it is a sign that I care about what I do, that I am connecting with my seeker, with spirit, etc. However, my anxiety has reduced with time, experience, and knowledge because I know that other readers have the same feelings I do. 

One way to ease your anxiety is to talk about it with other readers; I guarantee that they will relate and make you feel better.  Hearing the stories of other psychics, mediums and fortune tellers can help not just beginners but more advanced readers with their confidence. 

Realize That You Care

“Do not fear that you are doing a bad job. If you were doing a bad job, you would not care enough to worry about it. Anyone who does do a bad job usually always thinks that they are amazing. Anyone who is great at this often thinks that they are shit.”

Early in my career, these words were said to me by a fantastic Scottish medium. The medium, Gordon, explained that readers who stress about their readings are the types of readers who care about satisfying their clients. If you’re getting nervous, it means that you’re passionate about what you do and should be in this industry. 

Know Yourself To Gain Confidence As a Psychic Reader

When I was younger, I had a lot of reader anxiety, which (I now know) stemmed from the fact that I didn’t know who I was, what type of reader I was, or anything. Being unaware of my strengths and weaknesses caused me to feel chaotic because I didn’t know what to expect from a reading, how to advertise myself, and how I managed to ‘perform.’ I literally just went in there, connected to something, and began reading. 

As I got older, I pinpointed my reading style and worked out which spirits I connected with during readings. I increased my spiritual awareness by forming a personal relationship with spirit and mastered a form of divination, which was perfect for predictive, spirit-driven readings (Lenormand). 

If you do not know yourself, then it’s hard to read someone else. Part of you senses that something is ‘off’ in a way, and this causes anxiety. Define your style and work on that, your strengths, and your weaknesses, and this will increase your confidence and bring your readings under control. 

Meet Yourself To Gain Confidence As a Psychic Reader

A lot of reader anxiety comes from self-doubt. You may have ‘performed’ well a million times, but that doesn’t stop you from telling yourself that this time, you will fail. Every reading feels like a new reading and you’re stuck because you do not know how to gain confidence as a psychic reader.

In essence, this is a pretty flawed way to think. As a reader, you probably know this but just cannot break the habit of thinking this way. I recently read something, however, which gave me something to consider.

The book theorized that there are three layers of the self. There is your outer layer which you project to others, your inner fears and self-doubt (which is a result of criticisms) and your core, which is your true self, which is deep inside of you. 

The true self is said to be where all of your strengths and positives lie and which you can utilize. When applied to psychic readings, there is an interesting question which you can ask yourself to discover your true reading skill level:

“What kind of reader are you when nobody is watching and judging you?”

Probably a good one! You’ve had psychic experiences. You live for Lenormand Tarot, astrology, mediumship, etc., not just when reading but when in the shower and after dropping the kids off at school or while walking to the shops. You may have a Tarot journal and enjoy making entries. You have many books and most likely have purchased your fair share of decks. You love spirituality. 

Once you align your true self with your everyday self and get rid of any self-doubt, nothing is stopping you from being this confident reader constantly. In fact, nothing is stopping you from being amazing; deep down, you are already amazing! You just need tools to help you increase in confidence. Here is a visualization for aligning with your true, confident self:

1. Imagine what your true self is like. They are a confident, knowledgeable reader who can handle any situation which is thrown at them.

2. Imagine your true self is in front of you. Sense their calm and lack of reader anxiety.

3. Step into your true self. Become them. Feel their confidence, their self-belief, and any other positives that they display so naturally.

Try this visualization every day until you feel that you have truly become your true self.

Know That You Love What You Do

In the book “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” the author (Amy Chua) makes the interesting point that no one likes anything until they are not good at it. I don’t necessarily believe this in all cases, but I do believe this point:

“No one loves anything which they are terrible at.”

Do you love reading? I mean, do you love it? You do, or you wouldn’t put so much pressure on yourself to do well. Therefore, you must have some ability; otherwise, why would you love doing something you were terrible at executing? 

Give Yourself Credit 

In the spiritual industry, there seems to be an air of negativity attached to thinking that you are good at something. It is more fashionable to point out your weaknesses than your strengths. The need to be overtly humble traps readers into feeling guilty about taking any pleasure from being praised. 

Don’t worry; you’re not going to turn into a raving narcissist by acknowledging you’re a half-decent reader. After all, people who have an inflamed self-image do not worry about having one. Those who do not see fault in themselves are not self-critical; if you’re worried about becoming big-headed, that’s a sign that you’re not! 

It is entirely fine for positive feedback to build your confidence. When you do something right, give yourself a pat on the back. Tell people about the excellent review you got, advertise yourself. Let others praise you for your hard work. 

Note Your Achievements 

You should keep a diary or notebook to remind yourself of all of the good things you have achieved. Got a great review? Write that down. Does someone makes a great comment? Write that down. Did you overcome your fears, and it wasn’t that bad? Take note of that. 

Anytime you find yourself falling into the trap of worrying about giving a reading, take out your Achievement Folder and remind yourself of all of the positive things you have done and praise you have got. Even if they are just little comments someone makes, they can mean a lot when your confidence is at a low and you’re reading in 10 minutes. Reminding yourself of your strengths will help you to gain confidence as a psychic reader.

Control Your Empathy To Gain Confidence As a Psychic Reader

Many readers consider themselves in tune with other people’s emotions but do not consider that they may be picking up on the seeker’s anxiety. Have you ever thought that some of the anxiety which you feel is coming from the person receiving the reading as opposed to your own feelings? 

I notice that when I travel to some places, my anxiety increases unexplainably. I live in West Lothian (Scotland) but also extremely close to the capital of Edinburgh. It is relatively uncommon in Edinburgh to let a reader into your home, many people who live there visit the reader’s homes or centers. 

Those who have never had a reader come into their home are more anxious about letting a reader into their personal space for various reasons; one of the reasons being safety. I have realized that in these cases, my anxiety increases because I have empathized with the seeker.

It is, therefore, a good idea to try some blocking exercises before you meet a seeker. If you’re an empath, try to block their energy until the actual reading begins; it helps to elevate a lot of the stress associated with giving readings to strangers.

It also can be comforting to know that they are just afraid of you as you are of them! Remind yourself of this if you start to become self-critical. 

That is how you can gain confidence as a psychic reader. It is important to note that reader anxiety does elevate with experience. I wish the best of luck to anyone who tries any of these strategies.

Honour Your Ancestors Through Spirituality

For us diviners, our ancestors are constantly on our minds. If being a diviner is part of your lifestyle, every day you will be conscious of the spirits of your ancestors and the role which they play in your psychic readings and spirituality in general. Here is how to honour your ancestors through spirituality. 

As a diviner (someone who practices divination) I am constantly aware of my ancestor’s spirits. They send me signs in my waking life and visit me in my dreams. I petition my spirits before every reading and they make sure that my divination is on point, my precognition is working and I give the best possible psychic reading every time.

So, today, I wanted to give some quick tips for things which you can do to ensure a connection with your ancestors, not just for your psychic readings, but for your spirituality in general. Here are my top tips for how to honour your ancestors through spirituality:

Step One: Notice The Signs Which They Send You

Your passed relatives will talk to you through signs, especially if you’re scared of ‘ghosts’ or apprehensive about working with spirit. One thing which I teach in my Psychic Course is how to work with signs and stop being scared of spirit.

The signs which your relatives will send you be something which you’re likely to notice. For example, if you keep on noticing a certain bird or animal outside your home, these could be signs from spirits.

A common misconception among newbies to spirituality is that signs and symbols are the same things, which they are not. The symbolic meaning of your sign does not matter. All that matters is that you are receiving signs and sprits are trying to make contact with you.

Noticing these signs is one way in which you can honour your ancestors because doing so means that you acknowledge their presence in your life. If you ignore the signs they send you, it is kind of like telling them you do not want to speak to them! So, to honour them you must appreciate the fact that they are initiating conversation.

Believe it or not, you can actually decide which sign you want your ancestors to send. However, ideally, it would be a sign which you would connect to them. For example, before my grandad died he made me hold a handful of bees so I connect bees with him; bees are our sign. You can ask spirit to send you a specific sign which you would associate with one of your relatives.

Step Two: Have Them Around

If you want to honour your ancestors, place their pictures or things which remind you of them around your house. I am a Romany Gypsy so I have lots of depictions of wagons around my home. I know a lot of people of Scottish descent who have thistle around their home.

I am lucky enough to have known many of my ancestors, such as my great grandparents and my grandparents personally. I have photographs of them around my house and I make a conscious effort to stop, pause and reflect everyday. Having images or things that remind me of them around the home keeps them as a part of my life, my daughter’s life and the other kids who come to the home.

Step Three: Ask Them For Dreams

Not only can you ask your ancestors for signs but you can also ask them for dreams. Before you go to bed, ask your spirits if they will make contact with you. You can ask for guidance or you can ask them how you can better honour them.

A few weeks ago, I asked my ancestors for guidance before I went to bed. I did not even know particularly what I was needing I just knew that I need some spiritual help. One of my relatives appeared to me in the guise of a teacher. He told me some things connected to my business which I had completely forgotten about. My business is now going in a totally new direction because of the guidance from that dream.

If you usually do not dream, try writing down whatever you can remember in the morning, even if it is only a small thing, a color or a word. Recording what you can remember trains your consciousness to remember even tiny little details.

Step Four: Talk About Them 

People must think I am insane, but I talk about my dead relatives all of the time. I am always sharing stories about my granddad, or telling people about things that happened when certain relatives were alive. I make sure that the younger generations know that my past relatives are a big part of how they got here.

Today, I want you to make a conscious effort to talk about your ancestors. Do not just think about doing so but get out your phone now and set a reminder to converse with someone about your relatives. Or, post your favourite story on Facebook or Instagram. You can honour your ancestors through spirituality, by spreading your love of them in real life.

Step Five: Perform A Reading

Next, I want you to try this exercise with either your Lenormand or Tarot cards. This is a good way to see if your ancestors have any guidance for you (and you can honour them by taking their advice!)

Grab your preferred deck. I want you to say out loud, “Ancestors, what are you trying to tell me?” And I want you to shuffle your cards while you say these words. When you feel intuitively ready, go through your deck and look for:

The High Priestess if using a Tarot deck.

The Lily card if using a Lenormand deck.

The cards which lay on the top and the bottom of these cards will be your message from your ancestors. I got the Child and the Tower card, which I would interpret as, “Stand out and have fun” which is just the type of attitude my family has towards everything!

So, that is all for how you can honour your ancestors through spirituality! If you try any of the tips from this post and you post about them on Instagram, be sure to tag us and we will share you in our Instagram stories!

How To Develop Your Psychic Abilities

As a full-time divination and fortune-telling teacher, I often get asked, “What is the best way to develop my psychic abilities?” Psychic development is a hot topic and lots of people want to know how they can develop whether that be their clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience or claircognizance abilities. 

Today, I am going to tell you how you can develop all of your psychic abilities using Lenormand cards. By using Lenormand, you can tap into all of your ‘clairs’ and encourage their growth. So, let’s get started!

What Are Lenormand Cards?

Lenormand cards are thirty-six cards that have symbols on them which you would see in your everyday life (such as a tree or a man) or cards that are more symbolic (such as a heart). You can use the Lenormand cards to predict events and using them will help to develop your psychic abilities. 

Anyone at any point in their development journey can use Lenormand cards – and the sooner you start using them, the better. You can download a free absolute beginner’s guide here

Usually, you would use Lenormand cards to perform readings as you would with crystal balls or Tarot cards. However, today we are going to use Lenormand cards to help us develop our psychic abilities!

Clairvoyance

Clairvoyance is the ability to see things that other people cannot. For example, people who can see spirit have clairvoyance abilities. Clairvoyance is one of the most desirable and well-known psychic senses. 

One way in which you can develop clairvoyance is by observing signs. I go over how to work with signs in my Ancestral Work 101 Course (which comes as a free bonus with my Lenormand Course) but essentially you will observe the signs which spirits send you. 

Observing signs signals to spirt that you are not afraid and are open to contact. If you keep observing physical signs and strengthening your clairvoyance this way, eventually spirit will manifest to you. 

Exercise: Here is an exercise which you can try. Get your Lenormand card deck and shuffle them. While shuffling ask your spirits, “Which sign would you like me to observe”? Then pull a card. Whichever card you receive, whether it is the Lily, the Clover, etc. try to be aware and look for that sign during the day. 

You can see your signs in different forms, so always be aware. For example, if you got the Lily card you might see the actual flowers or see lilies on a painting. All that matters is that you physically see your sign. 

Clairaudience 

Clairaudience is the ability to hear spirit. People who have strong clairaudience will hear things which spirit tells them. Clairaudient people can hear things that other people cannot. 

There is another phenomenon linked to clairaudience which is known as cledonism, which means divination through sound. Just as you would through observing signs, you can develop your psychic abilities using cledonism. 

Exercise: After you have your ‘sign’ from the Lenormand exercise which we did in the clairvoyance section, it is time to go out looking for this sign. However, you are not going to just look for the sign with your eyes, you are going to look for the sign with your ears!

So, if you got the Lily card in the first exercise, you are now going to try to hear the word, Lily. It does not matter how you hear it. Someone could speak the word ‘lily’, someone could shout the name Lily, or you might even hear someone talk about lily flowers on the TV. However you hear it, you are trying to hear your sign. 

Clairsentience

Clairsentience is the ability to feel things without being told. For example, you might sense that someone in your family is in destress despite being millions of miles away. 

One night last year I got taken to hospital with a kidney infection and my twin sister woke up from her sleep because she knew something was wrong. We are both Romany Gypsy fortune tellers so we have a strong psychic awareness, but even people who have never worked on their psychic development may have had similar experiences, especially if they are gifted in this area. 

You can develop your clairsentience abilities by trying to ‘feel’ what someone else is feeling or by gauging what they are doing. 

Exercise: For this exercise, you will need a volunteer! Sit across from each other and ask your volunteer to hold the Lenormand cards. As they observe the card, ask them to try to tune into an emotion from that card (without giving you any clues). So, if they get the Heart card they will think about love and try to feel love. Your job is to try and gauge which card they have based on the emotions which they are projecting. Practice this exercise over the coming weeks and see if your ability to pick up the card improves. 

Claircognizance

Claircognizance means, ‘clear-knowing’. People who have strong claircognizance know things without being told and can easily predict events. Claircognizants often have very strong pre-cognition and can predict events either through their dreams or through the use of divination, such as Lenormand cards, Tarot cards, or even things in nature (such as the shape of clouds). 

Personally, I have very strong claircognizance and precognitive abilities because I have been practicing divination and fortune-telling since I was seven. I use my abilities every day, not just in my readings but also in my business. I even now teach psychic development courses. I believe that claircognizance ability is the most useful psychic skill as you can apply it to everyday life. 

Anyone can develop claircognizance abilities and one way to do so is to practice divination. I recommend that you try your hand at reading Lenormand cards. As I said earlier, I have a free guide for absolute beginners here

Exercise: Once you purchase your Lenormand cards, you can strengthen your claircognizance abilities by pulling ‘cards of the day’. At the start of each day, you can pull two cards and try to predict the events of that day. Be sure to photograph your cards with your iPhone, share them on Instagram or write them in your psychic journal so that you remember them. 

That is all for how you can develop your psychic abilities! If you’re interested in reading Lenormand, be sure to check out my How to Read Lenormand post or download my free Lenormand for Beginner’s guide here.

Improve Your Lenormand Predictions

Are you wondering how you can improve your precognitive abilities through reading Lenormand? Do you want to improve your Lenormand predictions? Do you want to improve your psychic development so that you can give more accurate Lenormand card readings? If this sounds like you do not worry, I have you covered and this is something which we are going to be looking at today!

The idea of prediction is something that many psychic readers today seem to shy away from yet, at the same time, it is exactly what draws so many newbies into the world of cartomancy. Being able to peer into the future has been humanity’s life-long dream and the 21st-century person is no less inclined to give it a try than their counterpart in Ancient Egypt, three millennia ago. So, I am going to show you, in this post, how you can improve your Lenormand predictions.

Enter Lenormand

In a time when the study of Tarot appears to be shifting away from prediction and into the realm of self-help and spiritual development, another system has entered the picture to fill in the void. A pack of 36 cards Lenormand promises to allow us to tap into our innate talent for precognition and give us precise, accurate answers to all our burning questions. The only thing we have to do is activate our intuitive potential.

The Elusive Idea of Intuition 

Intuition is best described as an ability to know a fact without the use of logical reasoning. It bypasses the conscious mind and goes directly into the parts of our mind we have little control of. For some, dipping into the deep waters of intuition will be easy. For others, it may appear impossibly difficult. In fact, many will be led to believe that they simply do not possess it and that their logical mind is meant to rule their entire personality. This, however, isn’t true. The talent is available to everyone.

Develop Your Intuitive Potential With Lenormand

Lenormand is perhaps one of the most effective ways to unlock your potential for precognition. It is not only a tool for prediction but also a method you can use to open up your spiritual synapses in such a way so that all other paths of divination you decide to take will bring drastically better results. While not exactly a science, fortune-telling is an art that can be mastered.

Read It Like A Sentence 

At first, your rational mind is likely to stand in the way, prompting you to overanalyze the pictures on the cards. You need to remember that the individual images are nothing but keywords, simple tools to trigger your innate intuitive potential. The method is simple. Lenormand relies on a semantic structure, taking advantage of the left side of your brain to access your talents. Reading a string of Lenormand cards is like reading a sentence. Each image is a word, each series of images a phrase, each Grand Tableau a story.

Be Quick To Improve Your Lenormand Predictions

The first trick to get your precognition going is to be as quick as possible. Do not think too much. If you want to improve your Lenormand predictions, do not hold back. Simply say whatever comes to your mind first. Do not allow yourself the time to hesitate. Be bold and be blunt. The sheer speed of your delivery will prevent your rational mind from interfering and allow you to tap into the intuitive. The flurry of words will come out faster than you can filter them. They will be natural and emerge directly from your subconscious mind. More often than not, you will get it right – even the first few times you give it a try.

Be Funny

You might also want to try being ridiculous. Yes, keeping it silly and playful is perhaps one of the most potent keys to unlocking your intuitive potential. It helps you relax and take things as they come. Sometimes the most literate, the most mundane, the most hilarious predictions are the most accurate ones. The Bouquet can stand for the flowers in your garden, the Mountain a rock in your shoe, and the House coupled with Mice may be hinting at the fact that you have a rodent problem. No shame in admitting it.

Retain Your Innocence To Improve Your Lenormand Predictions

This sort of innocence and enthusiasm for fortune-telling is what keeps the best in the business going. It unlocks potential for precognition you never dreamed existed and makes every prediction you make not only more accurate but more fun to utter. There is no point in playing with the cards if you’re not enjoying it. Make it fun.

Practice Word Association 

This very down-to-earth, non-occult exercise can help you tremendously in becoming a better fortune-teller. Word association is a fun game involving an exchange of words. It is best played with a partner but you can also do it on your own, putting together endless strings of words that have something in common. Use your Lenormand cards as starting points. This will push you to expand your vocabulary and enable you to use a more diverse range of keywords in your readings. The better you can express your ideas, the more accurate your prediction is likely to be.

Guess The Card To Improve Your Lenormand Predictions

Another fun game you can play with your cards is trying to guess which one you’re holding. Turn them face down, shuffle them thoroughly, and pick one (or a few) without turning them over. Say the name of the first card that comes to your mind aloud. At first, you are likely to fail. Over time, with practice, you will begin to be pleasantly surprised at how often you will get it right.

Start a Psychic Journal 

Tracking your progress is important. Keeping a psychic journal can be an excellent way to do this. Write down the details of each reading you do. Then, after some time has passed, compare and see how much of your prediction has come true. It is a very scientific method – one that will allow you to measure the level of your accuracy and, eventually, take your precognition to the next level.

Take It Easy To Improve Your Lenormand Predictions

Always remember not to take yourself too seriously. Lenormand did, after all, start as a mere parlor game. It was and still is supposed to be fun and enjoyable. Being able to peer into the future and take full advantage of your precognition is a beautiful gift, one that should be indulged in with joy – and shared with others. Never push yourself too hard. Approach divination with ease and you will have much higher chances of succeeding.

Methods Of Fortune-Telling With Cards

What are all of the different methods of fortune-telling using cards? Would you like to know how you can use cards for divination? What are all of the similarities and differences between all of both common and uncommon methods of cartomancy?

As you probably already know, the correct name for fortune-telling using cards is cartomancy. Cartomancy is divination using cards. If you’re new to cartomancy, you may not have decided yet which method of cartomancy is right for you. Alternatively, if you want to learn another way of card reading, you might be looking for options. 

Below you can discover more about the different types of cartomancy. I hope this list helps you to make an informed choice about which method of reading is right for you. 

Methods of fortune telling with cards - Tarot Cards

Tarot

Tarot is one of the most popular methods of fortune-telling with cards. It is pretty easy to purchase Tarot cards as they are available in most book stores and new age shops. Therefore, Tarot is often where most diviners begin their cartomancy journey as it is pretty easy to get started with Tarot reading.

There are seventy-eight cards in a Tarot deck; twenty-two of which are what are known as the Major Arcana and these include cards such as: The Fool, The Magician, The High Priestess, The Empress, The Emperor, The Hierophant, The Lovers, The Chariot, Strength, The Hermit, The Wheel of Fortune, Justice, The Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, The Tower, The Devil, The Star, The Moon, The Sun, Judgement, and The World

Other than The Major Arcana, the other fifty-six cards of Tarot are known as The Minor Arcana. The Minor Arcana are further divided into four suits (Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles). Each of the four suits has cards numbered Ace to Ten and four Court cards. For example, the suit of Pentacles has cards numbered from Ace to Ten plus a Page of Pentacles, Knight of Pentacles, Queen of Pentacles, and King of Pentacles. 

Tarot is an excellent divination system for answering specific questions. Diviners read cards in spreads, and you can adapt a spread to serve pretty much any purpose. You can ask Tarot questions about your career, business, friendships, love life, the sky is the limit. 

If you’re just getting started with cartomancy, then Tarot is an excellent place to start because it is an accessible system and there is lots of information available on Tarot. However, because there are lots of Tarot card meanings to learn, it can take some people years to master the system. 

Methods of fortune telling with cards - Playing Cards Cartomancy

Playing Cards

You can use regular playing cards for divination. You do not require any special decks to divine with playing cards; just a regular deck will do. Sometimes, fortune tellers refer to playing card divination as just ‘cartomancy.’ 

As with Tarot, many diviners begin their cartomancy journey learning how to read playing cards. Reading fortunes with playing cards used to be a rather prevalent form a card reading, but it has fallen out of favor in recent years, possibly because of other systems (Tarot, Lenormand, and oracle cards) have more visually appealing decks. However, there are some pretty fine looking playing card decks currently on the market (such as the Alice in Wonderland one pictured).

Oracle Cards

Oracle Cards

In some countries, oracle card divination surpasses Tarot for popularity. As with Tarot, oracle cards are readily available for purchase in mainstream bookstores (such as Barnes and Noble or WHSmith). The vast majority of people who have an interest in spirituality have dabbled in oracle card reading. 

Unlike other methods of cartomancy, there is not a standard system for interpreting oracle cards because all oracle card decks are different. For example, one deck may include a card called Love Yourself and another deck might contain a card named after the planet Mercury. 

Oracle cards are typically used by diviners to answer self-help styled questions. For example, instead of asking your oracle cards a predictive question such as, “When is John coming back”? You would ask, “What steps can I take to get over John”?

Because they are easy to buy, a lot of diviners start with oracle cards, but they do pose their challenges. Every time you purchase an oracle deck, you have to start again with a new system; this can be off-putting, and many people do not delve too far into serious oracle card study. 

Kipper Cards

Kipper Cards

A lesser-known (and not very popular) method of cartomancy is Kipper divination. In some countries (such as Germany) it is easier to purchase a Kipper deck than it is in others. 

In recent years, there was an effort by the cartomancy communities to boost the public awareness of Kipper and bring it into the mainstream. New Kipper decks were designed and published by Tarot artists, and publishers translated books into English. 

Sadly, however, Kipper does not appear to have ‘caught on’ as a popular method of cartomancy. I am unsure why this is, but from what I can gather it is because the number of available decks, books, and instruction is off-putting to many diviners. Also, the system does not really provide anything which other card systems do not – if diviners want advice, they turn to their oracle cards, if they have specific questions, they turn to Tarot, and if they want to make predictions they start reading Lenormand cards.  

Lenormand Cards

Lenormand

Lenormand is another lesser-known, but a brilliant methods of fortune-telling with cards. While it is rare to find Lenormand cards for sale in bookstores or mind, body, spirit shops, sometimes you can get lucky. The vast majority of Lenormand readers purchase their decks online. 

A Lenormand card deck has thirty-six cards which are named after everyday objects such as mice, scythe, clouds, man, and woman. Each of these cards has a meaning which is parallel to its symbolism. For example, in Western culture, snakes are symbolic of enemies and temptation – this is also the interpretation for the Snake Lenormand card. Therefore, if you are already familiar with symbolism Lenormand will be easy for you to master. 

Lenormand is the ideal system for reading predictive styled readings. It is very, very easy to perform general readings with Lenormand, and most readings are done using a Grand Tableau spread. Each position of the Grand Tableau looks at different areas of your life, including everything from letters you will receive to who you’re going to fall in love with next.

Lenormand Card Readers

Are you a Lenormand card reader? Are you interested in learning some statistical facts about Lenormand card readers? Would you like to read some information about the gender, location, and professionalism of the Lenormand fortune-telling population? Are you a Lenormand card reader who is dying to know if your experiences as a Lenormand card reader are typical? 

If this sounds like you, read on! 

In August 2018, I conducted a survey of 947 divination practitioners and asked them about their likes, dislikes, and experiences. Lenormand made up a big part of the survey, and today I am going to reveal the results. 

So, here they are, statistical facts about Lenormand card readers: 

Where Do Lenormand Card Readers Live?

Lenormand readers are more likely to live in the US, Africa, India, and Islamic Asian countries than diviners who do not practice Lenormand. I think these results reflect the growing popularity of Lenormand.

Surprisingly, Lenormand readers are slightly less likely to live in the UK and other European countries when compared to other methods of divination (such as Tarot). I am still working out why this might be but I think it is quite a shocking find considering that it has been assumed by the Lenormand community that most readers are living in these parts of the world.

What Is Their Gender?

Lenormand readers are twice as likely to be male than readers who do not practice Lenormand. One of the reasons for this may be because many of the ‘flag wavers’ for Lenormand are male. A strong male presence in a niche divination community inspires other men to join the party – this is a theme which I have found to be true in not just the Lenormand community, but other divination niches such as the bone-casting community.  

Lenormand readers are also less likely to identify as being non-gendered, genderqueer, or gender-neutral – the more experienced someone is at reading Lenormand, the less likely they are to be such.

What’s Their Experience? 

A large percentage of Lenormand readers (21%) consider themselves to be advanced readers. This is another surprising statistic as it is assumed in the Lenormand community that practically all English speaking readers are beginners.

Lenormand readers are generally more experienced with divination than people who do not read Lenormand. Nearly one-third of Lenormand readers have been reading for over twenty years. 

It is not common for Lenormand to be a diviner’s first method of divination (more than half began their divination journey with Tarot.) The fact that Lenormand readers have often started with another method of divination means that most readers have a considerable amount of time between when they start reading and when they discover Lenormand – this is why Lenormand readers are more likely to have decades of experience with divination. 

What Types of Support Networks Do Lenormand Card Readers Have? 

Lenormand readers have stronger support networks. The friends and family members of Lenormand readers are more supportive than the rest of the general divination population’s friends and family are.

Lenormand readers are statistically less likely to have close relatives who are diviners, but more likely to have ancestors who practice divination.

Are They Professional Diviners? 

Lenormand readers are a lot more likely to be professional readers, and they are more likely to build sustainable businesses than diviners who do not read Lenormand. In fact, Lenormand readers are more than twice as likely to make a full-time living than readers who do not read Lenormand.

The Big Divination Survey found that 77% of all readers who make a full-time living from their readings are Lenormand readers, and 66% make at least a part-time living. 

It is possible that Lenormand readers make more money because they have supportive family members and family. There is a very strong correlation between peer support and success as a psychic reader. 

Another reason why Lenormand readers are more likely to run successful businesses is that they read for prediction; predictive divination is an extremely profitable skill set. 

Do Lenormand Card Readers Want To Improve Their Businesses? 

Despite being more successful, Lenormand readers are less likely to want to learn more about business. One of the reasons for this may be because they are already doing well so do not feel the need to learn more about these topics. They would rather spend their time learning more about how to improve their skills.

Is Lenormand Growing In Popularity? 

Yes! Lenormand has grown (and will continue to grow) in popularity. 

Only a few short years ago, there weren’t any Lenormand books or decks, and only a handful of Lenormand resources available in English. Now, Lenormand has boomed in popularity thanks to an increase in the public interest and English resources.  

Many readers are attracted to Lenormand’s ability to make specific and accurate predictions about love, career, and life. The Big Divination Survey revealed that 77% of diviners had a high interest in learning how to read Lenormand cards; that’s more than the number of diviners who were interested in Astrology, Numerology, or any of the methods of divination which use crystals. 

So, that is it for the statistical facts about Lenormand card readers!
