letting people touch my deck

I was first exposed to tarot in college through a friend who emphatically did not allow anyone to touch her cards. I’ve decided to actively dismantle that early teaching by freely allowing friends to handle my decks when they are interested. I think I’ll do the same when I’m in a situation where strangers might want to touch them. I can, after all, cleanse them by shuffling and reordering them, or even exposing them to the elements, if they feel off after someone handles them.
