This episode is a Wild Soul Lesson about how to utilize the Tarot for mental health and healing trauma. In this episode, Lindsay dives deep on how she worked with the Tarot during her darkest days with her PTSD (and her not so dark, still difficult days), using it to help her to determine what her brain was believing in moments of trauma, and what the truth of the soul was underneath the contraction. This episode offers ways to begin considering Tarot as a profound ally and anchor for mental contraction or brain chemistry, helping us to identify our brain from our soul, and then how to wisely respond to our circumstances from a centered place. Using Tarot in this way also helps us to safely honor and bow to the “brain stuff” and the trauma, rather than trying to push it away. This is the foundation of Lindsay’s work with the Tarot, and she is very honored to be able to share this with anyone who it could serve.
