Arcana - either of the two divisions (the minor arcana and the major arcana) of a pack of tarot cards.

Back on your feet – The ability to come back into a reading after a series of misses.  Have ready standard expressions for set situations.  See Appendix F for stock phrases. 
For example, when a famous TV Psychic experiences repeated failures, he says, "the energy is pulling back" and stops that reading.

Divination - The art or act of foretelling future events or revealing occult knowledge by means of augury or an alleged supernatural agency.  The attempt to gain insight into a question, the future or a situation by way of a standardized process or ritual outside of normal methods.

ESP (extra sensory perception) – Is the process involving the reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses but sensed with the mind.

Haptics (Touch) – The non-verbal communication method relating to or based on the sense of touch.

Mirroring – A type of body language where a person mimics the movements of another.  This is evidence of two people getting on really well.  Each person copies the other’s body language, usually subtly.

        Mirroring occurs with:

·         Breathing

·         Gestures

·         Eye movement

·         Leaning towards each other at the same time

·         Crossed or uncrossed legs

·         Speech pattern

·         Arm movement, or no arm movement

·         Emotive energy such as being excited, relaxed, etc.

Note: If you practice this with somebody the key is to be subtle and not be a copycat.  There is a natural rhythm to the process, which is the key.

Non-verbal communications - Is the process of communication using wordless messages.  Messages can be communicated through gestures and touch, by body language or posture, by facial expression or eye contact.
