My review continues...

Distant Vision (pages 117 - 130)

This is a Fourth Dimensional Telepathy themed routine using the 22 major arcana and post it notes. Three guests volunteer to participate. But instead of the traditional 4DT premise, the reader is able to know the name and relationship of each guest’s chosen friend or relative (who are not present at the tarot party), and give that distant person a reading.

Beautiful routine!

Scott mentions the method seems complicated in writing, but is actually quite simple to perform. I agree it does seem a bit complicated in print, but knowing the handling of a similar routine in Scott’s book MMM 1, the actual execution of the handling is quite straightforward.

22 has been a real treat to read and review. I am sad there are only a few pages left to go, but excited to be preparing for my first tarot party.

A Couple More, Q&A Tarot (pages 131 - 142)

A Couple More provides a brief introduction to two bonus routines, the fist of which is Q&A Tarot.

Scott introduces Q&A Tarot this way:

“The first is a routine I doubt many will perform, but those who do will find they have a ready to go, no props required, psychic system at their finger tips, one that when played straight for the right audience can’t be beaten.”

I agree completely...

Q&A Tarot is completely propless, audience questions are not written down, and everyone’s question is answered.

In many ways, Q&A Tarot may be the ultimate Q&A.

Tarot Talk (pages 143 - 147)

In this chapter Scott provides the complete talk he gives at the beginning of every tarot party or lecture on the tarot.

This is sheer brilliance. Scott’s talk raises and answers the major question and areas of concern many people have, including:

“So, does the Tarot really work?”

“Do I need to be psychic to read the tarot?”

“What happens during a tarot reading?”

And more.

The answers Scott provides to all these questions are worth multiples of the price of the book, to me anyway. Very solid, well reasoned thinking.

One chapter left to go...

My review concludes...

The Perception of Value (pages 148 - 152)

This chapter talks about the thinking behind contemplating and deciding how much to charge and covers:

- Charging for tarot readings

- Perception of value, a definition

- When and where?

My final thoughts about this book:

“22 The Loftiest Dreams Become Concrete Realities” by Scott Creasey is a delightful book that describes in detail exactly how to conduct paid tarot reading parties.

This book spells out what to do and how to do it by someone who has been performing tarot reading parties for decades. The book is well written in a style that is clear, to the point and easy to read.

Overall rating: 10/10. Highly recommended.

This book was such a pleasure to read. Practical, easy material using proven methods ingeniously woven together to create routines that will never fail to leave a lasting impact.

If you know Scott’s style, get this. If you don’t know it, that’s the perfect way to start.

A must-buy. Especially at this price.

Love to all,

Phedon
