Dr. Suman

I am a certified tarot reader. If tarot cards intimidate you or you are just wanting to learn how to use the energies to help you grow spiritually on a daily basis, allow me to show you how these cards can have a tremendous positive impact on your daily life. Tarot cards get a bad rap from those who consider them to be some form of occult or other such practices. Truth is, these cards can be used for meditation, self growth, and guidance on a daily basis. These cards DO NOT have negative connotations or energies. They are merely a tool to help us better ourselves and gain insight into our own psyche. I can help you learn and/or get a reading if you may not be feeling ready to become a student of tarot just yet! Feel free to connect with me and we can discuss options such as a one card or three card reading or a lesson plan to help you read for yourself and others.
