Never forget. Time has a way of distorting and clouding the past. Try this simple tarot meditation to explore the power of thought versus memory in your life.

Pulled together, these 3 cards call for you to reclaim your personal power—with your eyes OPEN. To remember things as they actually happened. And to be true to yourself.

Connect to thought and memory with crow spirit

Crows and ravens are messengers of magic, creation, and spiritual strength. They slip easily between worlds.

Working with their animal medicine can connect you with past lives and other planes of reality, as well as spirit guides and loved ones who have crossed over to the other side.

In Roman myth, crows were pure white. It wasn’t until the crow brought Apollo bad news that it turned black.

Two crows served the Norse god Odin as messengers: Huginn (“thought”) and Muninn (“memory”).

They call to you to think clearly—and to remember truly.

Step more into your personal power with panther spirit

Panther Spirit invites you to step out of the fog and into your power. Fully. Completely. Without apology or explanation to anyone or anything external to yourself.

Black panthers in particular are a symbol of the hidden, ancient power of the night—and can signal the rousing of primordial kundalini energy.

How will you use all the power that is yours?

Why do tarot meditation?

Tarot meditation, or meditation using a tarot card or cards as a prompt, is one of my favorite exercises.

I love this because tarot cards, by design, are packed with lots of evocative imagery and potential meanings.

They serve as a really good visual jumping off point to help you explore a concept or get some guidance.

I love to recommend doing tarot meditation to folks who are new to meditation practice.

Often times, I hear: “But I’m not sure what to meditate about.” Tarot cards are a great, pre-made visual prompt. Find a tarot deck that resonates with you and see how this works for you.

Tarot meditation: Thought and memory

Close your eyes. Breathe deeply until your heart rate slows and steadies.

Briefly review a challenging situation you’re dealing with right now.

Do this as though you’re sitting in a movie theater, watching a movie.


Are you remembering events around this situation as you’d like to?

Or are you seeing them as they actually happened?

Are your personal biases clouding your judgment in any way?

If they are, how can you adjust your perception so you see more truly? And how does this information affect how you’ll move forward with this situation?

And then? Listen.

When you’re done, write down any impressions or thoughts you may have. In the days to come, reflect on these notes. Consider how you want to move forward based on what you’ve learned.
