In a small interview with Rekha Rathi, the secret of her journey of becoming a Tarot Card Reader was unveiled, when she was asked, “How did you become a Tarot Card Reader?
We were wondering that after giving more than 15 years to the corporate world, how come you landed up as a Mystic Healer?”.
She replied, “Ahh! That’s a long one.. it all started 28 years back, when I was just 9 years old. It’s still so fresh in my mind. It was a weekend and I was travelling with my father’s employee in a bus from Kekri to Jaipur. Jaipur is 125 kms from Kekri and we had taken a night bus which started at 10:30pm.
It was a 4-5 hours’ journey. I was in my pink and white frock and was vigilant of my parrot I was carrying. I was very happy as I was going for my studies.
Fortunately, I had the entire two seats to myself, so, I lied down comfortably and then in a fraction of a second I dozed off and I got flashes of images where the entire bus was tumbling over, a board with ‘Diggi Malpura’ written, screams and shrieks of passengers, kids crying, boxes and bags falling on passengers. The bus was toppling without stopping at all.
I woke up with my eyes wide open and held on to the front seat rail, but before I could react to it, we experienced exactly what I saw few minutes ago. The bus toppled 7 times but thankfully there were no major injuries inflicted on any of the passengers. My parrot, my father’s employee and I were safe and sound.
I heard people talking that the incident happened at ‘Diggi Malpura’, same place what I had seen in my dream. We were put in another vehicle and we went back home to Kekri. I narrated to my parents what I had seen it and told them that I had known that something like that would happen, but, my ignorant parents were unable to understand me.
Time kept passing by and I got happily married and gave birth to a beautiful boy child. I was now 27,ß working with this Insurance company with no growth and whether you like it or loathe it, office politics are a fact of life in any organization. Left completely frustrated with this workplace politics, I resigned and took some time for myself.
After few days, I continuously started having fever during the evenings but reason could not be diagnosed. It was so boring to do nothing at home.. I bought an astrology book, but uninterestingly kept it in my book rack, then I saw tarot cards lying next to it, which I had bought out of fun few years back. But that too could not ease my restlessness.
It was during this time when again I started getting flashes of images.. this time flashes of these Tarot Cards.
I immediately took out that set of Tarot Cards and started observing them listening to my inner voice, my intuition and from that day I never looked back.
Needless to mention, the seed was sown inside me when I was 9 years old.. That day I got present to the existence of some power which is there.. how and what.. all that I was yet to explore. But yes, it started that day. Or I would say that “Tarot Cards Chose Me” and here I am today”.
