I read exclusively from “jumping” cards – cards that fly out of the deck as I shuffle and ponder the tarot or oracle question. There are rare times when I have to use another method of picking cards, but my preferred way is receiving jumping cards from Spirit. It leads more to the randomness of a tarot reading. To keep from shuffling endlessly, I sometimes do a 3-2-1 shuffle countdown – I shuffle three more times before I stop shuffling the cards, for time saving purposes. Oftentimes, if Spirit has additional messages, this is the time additional cards will “jump” out.
I found early on in my tarot journey that the messages are revealed because of our Oneness with the Divine. When I shuffle, I meditate on this Oneness and the client’s question. As I meditatively shuffle, the cards fly out and the answers are revealed. I now cannot imagine picking my cards any other way!
Whether I riffle shuffle or hand over hand shuffle, the cards jump, because that is the agreement I’ve made with Spirit early on in my journey – that I’d receive and know these messages were heaven sent. No matter the deck, I always experience jumping cards.
