Visio Divina for Tarot
Visio Divina is an adaptation of Lectio Divina, an ancient practice for praying the scriptures from the Christian tradition in which a text is read a number of times as a way to inspired movement in meditative thinking and prayer. Traditionally it is a 4 step process of Reading (or in this case Viewing), Meditating/Ruminiation, Prayer, and Contemplating.
Taking a Long Loving Look (Visio)
Take up your journal and write or draw/doodle about what you saw / experienced. Muse about what these images might mean to you. Explore now with words and/or doodles for a few minutes.
Insight and Prayer (Oratio)
Close your eyes and clear your mind with a few gentle breaths. Let some message of insight, gratitude, or supplication arise from your heart. Be with this message / prayer.
Connecting with the Sacred (Contemplatio)
Rest in what you have received. Be in the presence of what you hold sacred.
