Tarot Cards For Fun and Sobriety
Watching Asmrtists grow is part of the pleasure I get from running this blog. Last time I featured Wildheart ASMR she had only, maybe, 5k subscribers? Honestly, I can’t believe I didn’t write down her exactly number of subscribers! What I did write down however, was that she had 137k Total Views, and now she has 610k Total Views. So that almost 500k views in 77 days. That’s really good! Go Wildheart! Not only does she make high quality ASMR, but she is also quite motivating as a business leader. Fun fact: she owns blackasmr.com, which is a portal linking to black ASMR creators.
Since my arrival in Florida I have met many people interested in spirituality beyond what most individuals of America would consider the norm. Tarot cards, spells, and a low tolerance for bullsh!t are just three of the things Floridians are in no short supply of. Prior to February I had never stepped foot in the state. Now I have opinions about the place.
One particular individual I have been getting to know is keenly confident and interested in The Way of the Tarot. He always says “I can give you Miss Cleo or I can give you the real shit.”
Okay, I’m scared…of the real shit haha.
I own tarot cards, and in fact, I brought them around the world with me! My cards have even bore witness to a solar eclipse. I’m quite proud of the places my cards have been.
It’s 01:00am – which means the clock just struck Sunday. Your TV is on; as it always is, because you sleep easier with the TV on, but you are not asleep yet. Voom-va-voom! – Enter Miss Cleo! She was a late night TV psychic from the latter pate of the 90’s – early 00’s. She did a fair-but-inconsistent Jamaican accent, and although she told everyone she was from Jamaica, she was actually from LA.
Let’s not get confused here! She did not sooth her audience with the ways of ASMR, and in fact, I do not think that she relaxed many people at all! She mostly got her audience riled up! Excited for what is, what could be, or what never was.
I had never given much thought to Miss Cleo until my friend brought her up, but I do remember seeing her on late night TV. He thinks she is the Universally Understood Symbol of “giving you what you want to hear fortune tellers and tarot card readers.” Ain’t it funny how the world creates a destination for some of us? Youree Dell Harris was likely just trying to get paid while doing something she enjoyed. Isn’t that what we all quest for? What Harris received in return for her work is an accumulation much larger than could be obtained using money alone. She is, in my friends eyes and now mine, the universal symbol of a feel-good fortune teller.
In the spirit of things, lets do a tarot reading. First! I am going to cleanse the cards.
Is this reading for Wildheart ASMR? I must say! – That is depending. – Because this tarot card reading I am about to do is dedicated specifically to the readers of this blog post. Wildheart, if you are reading this – this is for You.
This article has been more about fake Jamaican accents than anything [Although I believe Wildheart really is Jamcian]. But also, this article is about distraction. Today’s article is about reallocating time from one Concern you have, and giving that time to a different Concern, perhaps one that you didn’t even know you could muster! We are taking your concern for using an addictive substance and – thirty minutes later, after reading an article and watching an ASMR video – being surprised and relieved at how easy your concern has been – and can continue to be – substituted for separate and more rewarding concerns.
As for the cards…You’re going to: Have an epiphany, Move on those conclusions, Meet a cool human, Find monetary pleasure in something you’ve never done before/hadn’t done until recently, The Moon is a silent card here, and finally – the Knave is telling You, my wonderful and 50% American readers – Hanging a rug on your wall is totally fine if you call it a tapestry.
I’m not well practiced with reading The Tarot yet, but seriously, you’re going to meet a cool human.

Everyday Sobriety Advice
I am a recovered alcoholic/drug addict, but I am not a qualified addiction counselor. To help other alcoholics/addicts achieve sobriety, I have created the mantra’s below. Although I call them “steps,” I believe that all four mantra’s should be recited in concurrence.
When the urge to drink alcohol or use drugs comes upon you, I suggest reciting these four steps, and then implementing an activity to “kill time” until your urge to use drugs/alcohol is less intense. I suggest you use ASMR videos to “kill time”
Good luck, My Friend
Below are the steps of admittance required for using The ASMR.Community Sobriety Program [ACSP] successfully.
Step 1: “Sobriety is a choice, and it is up to me to make the right choice.”
Step 2: “Not everybody will be able to achieve sobriety, but that knowledge does not prevent my success regarding sobriety.”
Step 3: “The urge to imbibe (substances that I know will prevent my success) is finite. Sometimes the urge will exist, sometimes the urge will not exist.”
Step 4: “Sobriety is not the same for everyone. Success is.”
I believe the steps I listed above are a complete, non-exclusionary list of all mental admissions needed to achieve your goals regarding sobriety.
Everybody’s definition of sobriety is different, but everybody’s definition of success is the same.

For more daily support, check out Sober James on YouTube. He does a livestream every night at 21:00 Eastern Standard Time, and his live streams are a great place to receive support, gain motivation, and listen to encouragement in regard to addiction recovery. His program is based on the Twelve Steps.
SMART Recovery is another great program for individuals who are ready to tackle their addictions.
If you are seeking spiritual guidance, I highly encourage you to check out Tarot Reader ASMR. Her name is Amalia, and she is a kind-hearted individual with a skill for bringing us closer to ourselves.
Don’t underestimate the power of Yoga! Specifically Yoga With Adriene. My shoulder is broken, and so you can do some Yoga for me too. I really wish I could…
If you are looking or more information about ASMR, I’ve found the best place to learn about the subject is ASMR University. Their information is accurate [to the best of my knowledge], and plentiful. I mostly work with the application of ASMR, but there is a whole lot more to ASMR than using it to gain sobriety or fall asleep, including the history and the science of it.
