How to Bond With Your Tarot Deck While You Sleep
We talked about how sleeping with a tarot card under your pillow can help you to get psychic insights while you sleep. There is another reason why you might want to sleep with a tarot card under your pillow. Doing so can help you to connect or bond with your tarot deck. If you begin to study tarot cards, you’ll discover that you develop somewhat of a bond with them. The more you use them, the more comfortable you’ll become with their symbols and the more comfortable you will get when you are doing readings with them.
Even if you never plan to do readings for others and simply want to use the cards to gain insights into your own life, you’ll receive more accurate answers if you have a bond with your tarot cards.
Some people say that they need to bond with their tarot cards before they begin to see any accuracy in their tarot card readings at all. If you begin to do tarot card readings for others, you definitely want to have a good relationship with your tarot card deck.
How to connect with a new tarot deck
It can take some time to bond with your tarot cards. Every time you buy a new deck, be prepared to play with the cards and get comfortable with them before jumping into doing readings.
Always set the intention to forge a fruitful connection with a new deck of cards. You might even make a ritual out of it. Light a candle or burn some incense and call upon your spirit guides to work with you and help you receive messages that will be meaningful to your life.

If you find that you can’t seem to bond with a deck of tarot cards no matter how hard you try, they may not be the tarot cards for you. Don’t fret about that if it happens. There are so many different types of tarot decks and each has its own flavor. Sometimes I like working with traditional decks such as the Rider-Waite. Another deck I love is the Modern Witch Tarot Deck. You can find a review of the Modern Witch Tarot deck here.
Since you’re using tarot cards to work with your intuition, trust your intuition when it comes to how you feel about the tarot cards. I have purchased decks that I couldn’t connect with, and so I simply set them aside and worked with the decks that felt right for me. In some cases, I felt drawn to those decks at a later time. In other cases, I never felt drawn to those decks and that’s all right.
What to expect when sleeping with your tarot cards
When you sleep with your tarot cards underneath your pillow, you may develop a subconscious bond with them. I recommend sleeping with one card at a time if you are trying to gain psychic insights about a specific area of your life. For example, you might sleep with the Lovers card underneath your pillow if you’re trying to get insight from your deck into your love life. However, if your goal is to bond with an entire deck of tarot cards, sleep with the entire deck under your pillow.
You might also have some success by simply keeping the cards nearby while you sleep, such as on the nightstand. Don’t be surprised if you have vivid and colorful dreams when sleeping with tarot cards nearby.
The most important thing to do is to pay attention to your own feelings about it. How do you feel about sleeping with tarot cards under your pillow? How do you feel when you put your head on the pillow and close your eyes?
If you don’t feel comfortable sleeping with tarot cards under your pillow, don’t do it. However, it’s worth a try if your goal is to bond with your tarot cards and you haven’t yet managed to become as comfortable as you would wish.
