Methods for Cleansing your Tarot Cards

First of all- reasons to cleanse your cards may be:
  • You just bought them new or second hand.
  • You haven't use your cards for a long time.
  • Your have had a very difficult reading where you felt bad vibes or negative energy.
  • You don't feel connected to them anymore and your readings seem unclear.
  • Other people have touched your cards.

There are many different methods for cleansing your tarots cards.  I have tried them all and have found that what works best for me is to alternate the method I use each time. 

  1. Moonlight.  Leave your cards on a window sill overnight with the moonlight shinning down on them.  I like to draw a circle on a piece of paper and put the cards in the circle with the paper on the window sill.  Negative energy will not penetrate the circle and reach your cards while they cleanse and charge.
  2. Sunlight.  Same as above but with the sun.  :)
  3. Smudging. Take sage or your favourite incense and let the smoke pass over the cards a few times.
  4. Crystals.  Some crystals like citrine and kyanite are self cleansing and are good for cleansing your cards.
  5. Meditation.  Hold your cards and relax.  Imagine all the negativity leaving your cards and a soft white glow covering  and protecting them.
  6. Order.  Put your cards in order. Swords ace to 10 etc. and major cards starting with The Fool to The World and leave them together for 24 hours. 
You will know when your cards are due for a cleansing and you will notice a difference after they have been cleansed.
