Hi, my name is Daniela, and I’ve studied and used Tarot Cards since I was a young woman.
I want to tell you how I became interested in Tarot cards.
I didn't know the word spirituality when I was young, because I lived in East Germany.
Everything that had to do with Mystics, or spiritual knowledge was not a theme you could easily get access to, or talk about.
But somehow I was always interested in mystical stuff, because of my great grandma.
She always told me about her experiences when she was sick. She went to a “Witch”, by full moon, secretly, in the dark.
I was always fascinated with her mysterious encounters, and stories.
I would always pay great attention to them.
Her secret world, entered my mind as she spoke about it, and I was hypnotized! I was just a kid.
But I was open to learning and experiencing things. And my great grandma was the only one who shared her stories with me.
Later on, I think I was a bit over 20, my friend said: “Hey, did you know that there’s a "Witch" that lives not far from your place? She does healing on people, and Fortune Telling with Cards.”
She lived in walking distance, in an older part of the city. So we went there together. We wanted to see what she was all about.
When we arrived, an older, not very friendly lady opened the gate, and let us in. She lived on a small property. It had a garden full of herbs, vegetables, and chickens, and an old, untidy house.
So she read cards for me and my friend. She told us to pay only what we could, but at least 20 Marks.
It really felt very secretive. We got the opportunity to talk a little bit.
She told us a story of how she traveled for many years with a circus. She healed people, and helped to heal people, and that the government didn't like her. She had to do it secretly.
It was very exciting! And at the same time it was sad. I felt like people should have the freedom to practise their spirituality anywhere.
I think that’s why I’m so excited and energized, that I can now teach people around the world online!
It symbolizes FREEDOM for me.
I can reach people everywhere, and introduce them to my “secret” world. Thinking back to the Tarot card “Witch”, she has influenced me more than I thought.
Later, after the Wall between East and West Germany came down, I set out to learn Tarot myself.
It took me a long time to learn and understand Tarot. It can be pretty confusing.
And when I started to teach Tarot in groups, I was happy when students had the A-HA moment.
Learning Tarot has lots to do with practicing. This is actually true with anything you learn. No practice, No results, that's how it works.
Now, Together with my daughter Lina, we'll guide you through The Art of Easy Tarot Card Reading.
