About Jill Amy

I’m a Jewish woman, disabled from birth, who grew up in the Bronx. I tell you this only because being a go between for Spirit was not something I ever thought I’d be doing but here I am; helping others as I’ve been helped by Tarot and this Universal loving source, I named Guidance.

I spent my childhood in and out of hospitals. Having a disability didn’t do much for my self esteem and I spent many of my adult years depressed, lacking confidence, and believing I was un-lovable. The teachings from Tarot and Guidance helped me to blossom into the woman I am today – someone who is more content and more trusting of the world around her.

As a disabled kid I played piano. Music was and still is a comfort. I went to Music and Art High School, (the movie “FAME” H.S.) started playing conga drums in college, and after receiving my degree, worked as a Recreation Therapist for over twenty years.

I did some performing, (playing at Vancouver Folk Festival was a highlight) and opened a successful hand drum school which culminated in the writing of an instructional hand drum DVD/booklet set that’s available through Carl Fischer Music Publishing.

It took time to get use to this calling as a Tarot Guidance reader. The transition has been long in coming, but after seeing so many benefit, including myself, I now accept what it is I’m meant to do. To this day I remain in awe, amazed by the information that comes through. I never take this insight from Tarot or Guidance for granted.

Tarot and Me

In 1976 I received my first deck of Tarot cards as a gift. My connection to this modality that I knew nothing about surprised me. I was instantly drawn into the color and beauty of the cards so I studied them. My skill and intuition deepened and the gifts I received from Tarot offered insights about myself which changed my perspective for the better. After years of reading for myself, friends started to ask me if I’d read for them, then their friends asked, then the friends of those friends asked. Today, word of my work has spread and I have new and returning clients all over the U.S.. I also teach Tarot.

Guidance and Me

I was in my thirties when a voice came through I was sure wasn’t mine because what I was being told was far wiser than my intuition had ever been. I opened to this positive wisdom. Over time, my connection to these teachings from the Universe deepened. What I’ve learned and continue to learn from Guidance is what I share with others. Self awareness is where healing starts. This is when change is possible. I’ve been a student of self-inquiry my entire life because my attitude, on any given day affects the whole.

Grandma and Me

Before my dad died he told me I reminded him of his mother Clara, a Russian Jew who came from Argentina who passed away before I could meet her. He said my grandmother, who he loved deeply, had insightful wisdom and people would come from all over the Bronx to seek her advice. They said she had a profound “gift” and my dad who had witnessed this, was convinced I’d inherited my “gift” from her.

I’ll never know if I inherited my grandmother’s “gift” but I do know that I’m proud and humbled to carry on her helping legacy to you.
