Reading the pack
What the cards foretell? Poonam Sethi has the right answers.
WHEN SHE was a toddler, she did not merely learn to speak but also to give vision to her words. She was able to foretell things nobody in her home could think would take place. Poonam Sethi, now a popular tarot card reader, Feng Shui practitioner, Reiki healer, colour therapist, Rudraksha consultant and crystal healer, has turned her gift into a "healing" profession.
"It all started when I got my card read by a foreign tarot card reader," says Poonam, a qualified interior designer. "Slowly the predictions started coming true, and I used to help my family and friends in their personal matters. But this thing became so big that I had to leave my job."
That was 12 years ago. In her words, "Tarot card reading is not just simple talk. The combination is numerology and pictures that reflect an individual's future prospect. This is an Egyptian science, in which people used to draw pictures to tell the future."
About Feng Shui she says, "It is a science from China based on directions, which is parallel to Vastu Shastra."
People of all callings, be they film stars, hoteliers, industrialists or politicians, come to her for consultation. "Since I started giving healings, it really takes a toll on my life. I have my family, three children, and it really affects my personal life."
She firmly believes in Sai Baba of Shirdi and considers herself lucky to have the ability to convert people's sorrows into joy. She offers 90 tips to improve one's life in her first book "The Power of Feng Shui". Five other books in this series are to follow soon.
Says Poonam, "The future of tarot card reading is good, as people are getting more aware of it and want to know what is going to happen next."
