And yes Tarot Bear those pockets in underwear ARE for condoms. We are a pretty enlightened lot in the UK you know!! (LOL)

I have never slept with a card or cards under my pillow but as i have read it might be a good way to understand each individual card more. ( i am new to learning the meanings) so it could help me anything is worth a shot

I have got some good insites with this
That is a way to get a point from your deck. LOL I would say put the card you want to get a answer from on a flat surface or under your pillow but make sure it SPECALIZES in what you want an answer to. if on a counter, sincrinze two stones to eachothers energy put one under your pillow and one on the card, the stones should talk to eachother and put what you want in your dreams, a bit distored posiblely, but still the answer.

I wouldn't want to rumple the card, so I would leave it on the nightstand, maybe. (And pray I didn't spill water on it during the night--have to have my water glass.) I haven't tried this, but my hubby left a reading out on his nighttable once, and I dreamed about one of the cards. I still have little idea why, but the dream sure stuck with me. It was the Thoth 5 of Cups.

I haven't done this with tarot cards yet (I'd be scared to crumple them), but I do it with music I am trying to memorize. I read it just before turning off the light, then put it under my pillow, then read it again first thing when I wake up. The rehearsal goes on while I'm sleeping.

I don't really know what the point would be though to sleep with the card.

When I got my Robin Wood deck, I decided to try an experiment and sleep with the deck under my pillow for three consecutive nights. You know, just to see if there was anything to those old superstitions.

I put the cards in a ziplock bag and slipped the bag under my pillow. Not only did I have very lucid dreams for those three nights, I felt really connected to the deck afterward. In fact, the deck seemed to take on a warmth to the touch that it didn't have prior to my sleeping experiment. That warmth is still there.

I considered putting single cards under my pillow, but I'm too afraid of bending them. There was no damage done to the whole deck when I slept on it, but I'm wary of sleeping on individual cards.

An interesting Experience

When I was a little bit less experienced with the cards (not that I'm very experienced now) I was in the middle of an excersize where I was trying to find the cards that I was most uncomfortable with. I seperated out 5 major arcana, and was about to narrow that down some... I got really tired before I did so, however. At the time, I was trying to build a subconscious relationship with my tarot cards, and one aspect of that was sleeping with my deck under my pillow. So I put the 5 cards that I was least comfortable with face up, and the rest face down, and fell asleep.

This was, in retrospect, pretty dumb.

I woke up about 6 minutes later after having the worst nightmare of my life. I mean really, it was just awful. I couldn't move for about 20 minutes, then when I walked upstairs to the bathroom (taking a bath helps me restore my 'cool') I managed to break about 3 things, and after I got into the bathtub, the whole shower curtain fell on top of me. It took about 6 hours before I was really able to calm down. heh...

Why don't you just stick them in your bra?

{PS - the commercial for the underwear where the Best Man is undressing at the church because he can't find the ring, which is in the underwear pocket - is hysterical! We don't get commercials like this in the US! LOL!}
