Tarot readers, from my experience, rarely talk about the ability to channel messages of those who have passed on. I never knew it was a possibility, until my accidental stumbling upon. When I perform a tarot reading, the results are often very different from person to person. I can focus my energy on specific reading topics as requested by a recipient, or can use my intuition and allow my spirit guide to help ascertain the best message for the recipient. Ever since I started doing tarot readings, I chose not to listen to recommended forms for tarot, which I believe made me more open minded and available for such readings as I will describe.
About 9 months ago, my stepfather's mother passed away. I never got to meet her, but I heard a lot about her and her spiritual abilities. I had just received new tarot cards that I really attached to, and found my readings to be far more beneficial. Since I had only done a few, I was motivated to keep practicing on people! I gave a reading to my mother, which was accurate but not particularly notable since I know a lot about her. My stepdad came into the room, and I excitedly offered him one as well. As I began my reading, I had a strange feeling come over my heart. Often when I do a reading and there is great emotional strain I really feel it. This can happen with other chakra areas and sensations, but I am most sensitive with the heart. Finally my intuitive layout was complete, and I had a row about what I presumed to be his mother. Again I know close to nothing about her, but I had the uncanny feeling many readers can relate to that this was for his mother. I had a feeling there was more to be said; I picked the cards back up, and thought to myself, "if you are my stepfather's mother, please prove to me." The card that fell out directly after was the Death card. It was such a striking event that even now I get chills thinking about it. There are several other tarot reading stories where I feel particularly close to something beyond the trivial questions tarot readers tend to get (which are completely fine and valid), but nothing quite as beautiful and scary as this.
