Tarot Cards: 5 Ways They Can Help Mental Health & Spiritual Wellbeing

Are you feeling anxious, depressed, or just that your life is out of control? 

Are you doubting yourself or dealing with relationship issues? 

Are you experiencing trauma or just looking for a way to be more present? 

If you are looking for ways to improve your mental health and connect with your spirituality, why not try tarot?

Tarot has been used for centuries to gain insight and guidance, but did you know that it can also help with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression?

In this article, we'll explore five ways that tarot can benefit your mental health and spiritual wellbeing.

The Power of Tarot for Mental Health

Tarot is a powerful tool that can help individuals improve their mental health and wellbeing. 

When life feels out of control, a Celtic Compass card reading can provide you with your bearings and a sense of clarity and guidance. It can also help you uncover underlying issues that may be contributing to your mental health struggles. Here are some of the mental health problems that tarot can help you with:

  • Anxiety: Tarot can help manage your anxiety by providing a calming and grounding influence. It can provide insight into anxious thoughts and feelings and help you have a sense of control over your life.
  • Depression: Tarot can provide a sense of hope and perspective. This way, it can help you connect with your emotions and gain insight into your feelings, allowing you to work through negative patterns of thinking.
  • Self-doubt: Tarot can help you overcome self-doubt by providing guidance and insight into your own strengths and abilities. It can offer a sense of self-awareness and confidence, which will allow you to move forward with your goals.
  • Trauma: By providing insight into the impact of personal past experiences and offering a safe space for reflection and exploration, tarot can help you process and heal from past traumas.
  • Relationship issues: Tarot can help you navigate complex relationship issues by giving you clarity and insight into their dynamics. It can provide perspective on the situation and identify potential solutions.

Obviously, Tarot cannot, in any way, be considered a suitable replacement for the professional medical treatment of serious and long term issues.

But an ethical and well qualified Life Coach, who utilises the craft of Tarot as a healing modality, that would be me, Jo Murray, BTW, can play a strong in supporting role in helping you to heal yourself and through any challenges you might be facing.

As I like to say; No problem too big, too small or too scary. Having suffered my own mental health challenges over the decades and a long cold dark night of the soul or two, I can honestly say that I done enough Shadow Work for ALL of the Lifetimes!

And I am by no means done, we never stop "Doing the Work" but I am a much healthier and happier human being than I have ever been and Tarot - among other things - has been instrumental, for me, in that recovery.

Tarot and Spirituality

Tarot is not only a tool for mental health but also a powerful spiritual practice. By using Tarot cards as a means of reflection and meditation, you can gain insight into your spiritual journey. 

Here are some of the ways that tarot can help individuals connect with spirituality:

  • Find meaning and purpose: If you are feeling disconnected from your spiritual beliefs and practices, tarot can help you find meaning and purpose.
  • Provide guidance and clarity: Tarot can give you clarity and insight into complex spiritual questions, which will help define your life purpose and guide your spiritual journey.
  • Develop intuition: Tarot can help you develop intuition and trust your inner voice. By using the cards as a tool for reflection, you can connect with your instincts and inner wisdom.
  • Enhance mindfulness: Tarot can help you become more present and aware of your thoughts and feelings. By reflecting on the cards and their meanings, you can develop greater mindfulness and awareness.

5 Ways Tarot Cards Can Help Mental Health & Spiritual Wellbeing

Tarot cards have been used for centuries as a tool for divination, but they can also be used to improve mental health and spiritual wellbeing. In this section, we will explore each of these five ways that tarot cards can help improve mental health and spiritual wellbeing.

1. Provide a Sense of Control

Tarot can provide individuals with a sense of control over their lives. 

When you feel out of control, it can lead to feelings of anxiety and stress. By using tarot, you can take an active role in your spiritual journey. 

Tarot cards can provide guidance and insight into important decisions or life choices, and can help you overcome obstacles or challenges that may arise.

2. Uncover Underlying Issues

Tarot can also help uncover underlying issues that may be contributing to mental health struggles. By using the cards, you may gain insight into past traumas or negative patterns of thinking that are holding you back. 

Tarot cards can help you identify these issues and begin to work through them, moving towards healing and growth.

3. Connect with Your Inner Self

Tarot can be a powerful tool for improving mental health and connecting with spirituality. By using the cards as a means of reflection and meditation, tarot cards can help you understand your strengths and weaknesses, identify your needs and desires, and gain a new perspective on your life. 

This way, it can help you work towards personal growth and development.

4. Connect with the Divine

Tarot can also help you reconnect with a higher power. If you use the cards as a tool for reflection and meditation, Tarot cards can provide guidance and insight into spiritual matters, helping you deepen your spiritual practice and connect with your inner wisdom.

5. Develop a Greater Sense of Mindfulness

By taking the time to think abour the cards and their meanings, you can become more present in the moment and more aware of your thoughts and feelings. As a result, Tarot can help you cultivate mindfulness, which can be particularly helpful when dealing with anxiety or stress. 

By focusing on the present moment and becoming more aware of your thoughts and feelings, you can reduce feelings of overwhelm and cultivate a sense of calm and peace.
