James Ricklef recently wrote a post in his blog about a cool technique that Robert Place presented at the 2010 Readers Studio. I’ve been using the technique with great success since I returned from the Readers Studio, and in reading James’ blog I realized that I unconsciously added one alteration – I use reversed cards. The technique still works quite well and you (surprisingly and happily) get the same type of results in terms of directed energy flow.
Take a moment and read the “Robert Place at Readers Studio 2010” entry in James’ blog. (http://jamesricklef.wordpress.com/2010/05/06/robert-place-at-rs10/). James did an absolute great job describing and summarizing the technique, and I know it will be well worth your time and effort. Note that James indicates not using reversed cards. I don’t remember Robert saying that, but I trust James’ recollection on this far better than mine. Ok, off you go…

Now that you have an idea of how Robert’s technique works, here’s my example using reversed cards.
I drew these three cards for a client of mine who was feeling way better about himself, but still seemed to have something nagging at the back of his brain. I told him that he was definitely over that which was really stressing him out, and that he had come a long way in becoming more confident, being more decisive, and feeling better in his own skin. I also said that he has, indeed, accomplished the work he needed to do. So now I apply Robert’s technique.
It was clear that he did get over all that was stressing him out because the lady on the bed is facing away from the Emperor. Although he’s completed his work, there’s some small part of it that he hasn’t let go, which is why he has the uneasy feeling. I noted the man in the 10 of Wands is facing back towards the Emperor, indicating that he won’t feel fully confident and at ease until he finally releases that last bit of the past which is in the back of his mind. I also said that, if he did let it go, a subsequent reading would likely show a more positive energy flow away from the Emperor, indicating that he is ready to move on to the next part of his journey.
Had I used upright images only and gotten the same cards, the message would have been entirely different. For me, using reversed cards gives me the greatest breadth of possibilities for interpreting the message, and I know that if I get the cards in a certain way (upright or reversed), they were meant to be so.
In any case, it’s a pretty incredible technique and it has most definitely enhanced my readings and raised them up a couple of levels. I hope it has the same benefits for you.
