Paige Zaferiou: About the cathartic experience of writing on toilet paper…
When you work with the unseen world, you need to have some practices in place to ground and protect yourself. That’s when the toilet paper came up in our talk: Paige was explaining a technique she uses to break her own patterns.
The way we grow up molds and forms us. Paige is a “professional witch,” who draws on her natural abilities in reading tarot cards and natal charts, setting lights, blending herbs, recognizing omens, uncrossing curses and speaking with the dead.
For Paige, the world has never been the divided place it is for most of us. The material and non-material worlds have equal rights to exist and be heard. Tarot reading and art both draw heavily on intuition and listening closely to our deepest core. What’s required is trust. Trust in the unknown, trust in an outcome that is best for us – even when we can’t see it yet.
Tarot allows us to peek behind the veil. So what do you do as a tarot reader when you sense a not-so-positive outcome?
How does a tarot reader communicate not-so-favorable information to her client? Does she hold back? Does she dress it up? While most of us would feel the strong need to run, bury and forget what we have sensed, Paige does not. She chooses to face it head on and talk openly about it.
I asked Paige how she handles this kind of information while working with her clients. She replied that she turns her focus to the learning: What does this situation teach us? How can you protect yourself? And how do you make room for it in your life?
Paige understands Tarot as more of a guide than hard, unmovable fact. It tells us when it might be wise to pivot and when to stay strong. Paige sees herself as a supporter who gives her clients gentle nudges to help them moving forward in their lives.
