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, doing what I love; helping others as I’ve been helped by Tarot and a Universal 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 and amazed by the information that comes through. I never take this work for granted.

Tarot and Me

In 1976 I received my first deck of Tarot cards as a gift. My connection was instant as I was drawn into the color and beauty of the cards. I studied. 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, I began reading Tarot for friends who asked, then for friends of friends. Today, word of my work has spread and I have 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 and past away before I could meet her. He said my grandmother, who he loved deeply, had 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.
