Learning to read the Reiki Tarot cards takes a combination of knowledge and intuition that anyone can develop. Reiki Tarot cards are designed for Self Divination (clarity of self and spiritual clarity) or they can be read for you by Another. Understanding the reading ultimately comes from Within Your Higher Self.
My original deck was an Oracle deck and contained Reiki Heart Meditations. Over the years, as I have grown, been on new pathways and evolved, the deck has evolved along with me. It now contains Chakra, Numerology and Tarot as well as the Reiki Sacred Power Symbols.
I have found that one must enter into these readings with honest and sincere intention. To that end, I advise using a quartz crystal and asking for clarity upon the question or guidance desired. I now use different crystals representing the chakras along with the cards for channeling their intrinsic energies for Your highest spiritual revelations.
These revelations can resonate instantly, or may arrive when meditating on messages from the Reiki Tarot Cards. The Art itself can inspire Your Unique interpretations from Your Intuition.
Please do not be afraid when drawing a Reiki Tarot Shadow Crown card. The Shadow Crown cards lead to self-enlightenment. Any time a Reiki Tarot Shadow Crown card is drawn, another card must be drawn for further meditation on the matter. Drawing a Reiki Sacred Power Symbol card creates an Eclipse .. this is a powerful gift to you: Light enters Shadow and the conscious and unconscious touch. The energy of the Reiki Sacred Power Symbol on one of the 9 Numerology cards is to be used with the Reiki Tarot Shadow Crown card you’ve picked.
A few years back I was given the gift of the electric violet blue light through my third eye chakra. It was during a very dark period in my life and served to catapult me from a dark place into the light. A Reiki master teacher gave me an amethyst to symbolize this gift. So now I use this amethyst by placing it on top of the deck after shuffling. I leave it there and then when feel so inclined, pick a card whose message contains the gift from Spirit.

More About Lisa Wray, the Artist
Lisa Wray is one of the earliest pioneers of the visual graphic media arts, developing her unique style more than two decades ago in 1983, when the Internet and the Digital Age were just dawning.
“My ideals are beauty, harmony and symmetry, the same ideals as artists working during the Renaissance Age. My goal is to inspire you, as I have been inspired by others throughout the ages.”
Wray describes a day where she had just completed several pieces of art, and was wondering what to call her style. This led her to the book, Artists on Art, an anthology edited by Robert Goldwater and Marco Reves from the end of the Middle Ages to the Second World War (14th – 20th centuries). As Lisa began reading what the artists had written in their role of artist, she was drawn to Giorgio DeChircio, and felt that his thoughts and ideas most closely resembled her own. She was surprised to learn that his “Metaphysical Painting”, which he later abandoned “must be counted among the most original and influential of twentieth-century styles.” Wray has sought to resurrect the style and decided to call her work “Renaissance of Metaphysical Imagery®”.
Many of Lisa’s early pieces were hand drawn with traditional media such as colored pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic and oil paints. Years later, when computers started to become accessible (desktop publishing), Lisa was intrigued with the new software and digital tools that started to emerge on the market, allowing her to explore her diversity in the source of her inspiration. “I spent about three years working with some of my traditional artwork, scanning it into the computer and experimenting with the various tools, plug-ins and color controls. At that time, the only archival printing media output that I could find was called an Oil Based Dye Transfer.”
Lisa relies on the discovery of life to influence her pieces. “I rely on music, literature, artwork, and people to inspire me, reaching inside myself for answers.” Lisa often finds motivation from some of her most beautiful visual pieces in nature. “I find that natural objects, such as skeletal bones, pieces of wood, feathers, flowers, and even death itself are a source of creative inspiration.”
