Lacking Energy for Readings

Postby Muse » Mon Nov 25, 2019 8:19 pm

Do any of you whom preform readings for yourself or others hit a point where the mere thought of doing a reading fills you with the need to sleep? As in, it tires you out so much you not only don't want to look at the cards but you don't even want to do something else after the fact? I've been having this issue lately and I'm having trouble telling if it's environmental, psychological, or something more spiritual in nature...maybe my cards hate me because I haven't used them much as of late. Who knows. XD

Anyone have advice on the matter?

It could be anything, but it makes sense to me. If you’re overdrawing on one resource when you read, then you’ll get tired. My best guesses are that you need to revisit grounding, figure out what else makes you tired too so you can figure out where the leak is for you, or that you’re just in a tired part of life. That last one sounds like a cop-out, but I had a few months like that before that had no explanation, including medical. Regardless, remember to take care of yourself. <3

Will do, thank you. ♡

This has happened to me in the past. I don't do readings anymore like I used to just because my energy level is very low due to health reasons and so until I get better I only draw a card for myself once a week when I can remember.

I used to give readings a lot and sometimes they were spreads consisting of 3 cards but other time it could go up to 4, 5, 6 or more depending on the seekers situation and what I felt called to do for a reading. There would be times were I have done spreads up to 12 cards and I spread I have used that was 21 cards. There is lots of energy that can be drained from a person when doing readings and the days I needed to do readings I've tried not to have too much going on that day (if possible) have time to relax a bit before doing a reading and grounding well before doing readings, having healthy foods to eat and make sure I'm not hungry before readings, lighting certain candles with particular scents to help with energy as well as incense, and then grounding well after readings. If there is a large crowd its good to take a break and stretch your legs for a bit and get some water to drink.

Yes it happens to me at times. It is easy for us to forget or not fully comprehend just how much energy actually goes into a proper reading. I find especially when we are doing this kind of work for ourselves we are really 'feeling it' because we are both the focus and practitioner of the reading. There is a lot of circulation going on and as Alys alluded to, the resources which are stabilizing that need to be enough.

Of course this may not be the reason for you but I know this is part of what finds me drained. Even just remembering to light some candles alters that as they charge the field in which you are conducting said reading. The same way that resonant gemstones kept nearby will help take some of the weight off of you as you're performing the work.
And I'm having a deja vu while typing this for some reason, I'll end here. Lol.

I use my cards to speak to my unicorn spirit and after some time she always tells me to stop and go to sleep. If I for some reason refuse and continue to talk to her, I feel drained the next day...

Thank you all for the input. I think energy conductors such as gemstones and candles are exactly what I need. I've been using nothing but myself and the cards and, as you might imagine, it becomes...very difficult to maintain. Especially when considering environmental hazards such as disrespectful and/or distracting roommates. >.>

Lacking energy is bit of a foreign subject to me in general. I don't recall it ever happening but then again, I seem to be quite grounded by default.
So, my suggestion is also to ground and maybe ground some more. Perhaps bringing a bit of nature into where you live could help with that.
