MY BACKGROUND I have been a student of Tarot for over twenty years; I currently teach a yearlong online Tarot course; and, I am professional Tarot reader with Keen.com. I am a spiritual coach with a passion for life and exploration. I will interpret your Tarot reading and give honest, practical advice to help you achieve your greatest potential. Here is an interview excerpt from MysticMag: https://www.mysticmag.com/psychic-reading/interview-trishaparker/ WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DETAIL IN MAINTAINING A RELATIONSHIP OF MUTUAL TRUST WITH CUSTOMERS? The most important detail in maintaining a relationship of mutual trust with my customers is 100% honesty. I will not lie to them about what the cards say. Sometimes it’s easier just to blow smoke and say what the client wants to hear, but I won’t do it. I do get people who hate me for the message I receive, but I trust in my higher self and know that most people appreciate my frankness. It’s all about how you deliver the message. And, I’ll never tell someone that there’s no hope. SHOULD YOU SEE SOMETHING BAD IN SOMEONE'S FUTURE, HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT DEALING WITH THAT SITUATION? I love this question about if I see something bad in someone’s future. It links with what I just said above. In my paradigm, the future is a projected energetic imprint of what someone is bringing from the past and what they are currently experiencing. The future is an extrapolation of past and current trends. When I see something bad in the future, I tell my client what’s going to happen, but I also let them know that they have the power to change the future. They are never powerless. For example, if someone’s wife is about to leave them and their marriage is headed for divorce, I spend time with them discussing what they can do NOW to avoid this outcome. The cards help with that too by showing the consequences of different choices; or showing where the block or conflict lies. We move forward with the reading with the goal of change DO YOU THINK EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON, AND IF SO, WHY AND HOW? I am definitely of the mindset that everything happens for a reason. The cause of “something happening” is often because of our choices. This sounds heartless, but in most cases it is true. If you search deep, you can probably find the source of anything, right? In addition, in my mind, I believe that we are reincarnated with certain lessons to learn so, yes, sometimes things do happen for the sole reason to learn a specific lesson. Our greatest heartbreaks, our greatest successes make us who we are today. When reading for a woman who wants to know why she was born into a family that she does not feel connected to, who are so foreign to her, I do not tell her it happened so she could learn a lesson. No, because that is not helpful, however, I believe it with all my heart. I use the cards to show her how she can overcome this obstacle, where she can find her strength, and where her greatest weakness is.
