This is part 2 of my amazing Tarot reading by Robin Mortola from Enchanted at Salem, MA’s Pickering Wharf.
For the first portion of the reading, right click this link and pull it up in a new tab or window: My First Tarot Reading – Part 1 – My Purpose in Life. In this portion, I will share with you what I learned about the paranormal activity I’ve had surrounding me since I was 14.
Robyn paused for a moment and closed her eyes, holding her hands over the Tarot cards.
She told me, before I could offer the information, that I had three children. I remember when I was young that my mother had a reading but I can’t remember if it was a palm reading or tarot reading. When she returned she shared all the details with me. Several predictions came true not long after. I held onto the information that was the most important to me at the time. The reader had told her I would have three children, two boys and a girl. I was young, probably between 13-16. I can’t quite recall but I do know it was before I had found the love of my life.
As time went on I got married and had my first child, a son. When I became pregnant a year later, I recalled the information my mother had given me and wondered if this child was my boy or girl. After two months, I miscarried. Two months later I was pregnant with my second son. I never had other children. In my mind, the baby I had lost was my daughter. I was always very close to my mother and wanted that kind of relationship with a daughter. I felt for a long time that there was something missing.
I was relieved to hear that she too saw 3 children. Every palm reading I had I was told the same. There were so many times when I felt her presence with me. I have felt knees or feet pushing on the back of my seat when no one was behind me in the car. Doors in my house have jiggling handles and they open and close with no cross wind. We hear footsteps in the hall; even my son’s girlfriend, Nichole has seen what she describes as shadow people near the stairs in the hallway. The dog even stares at the stairwell and the landing intently with his ears at attention. (He doesn’t bark though.) We have even gotten tapped on the shoulder and heard voices when we were in a hotel room at Disney World.
There was an instance recently where I was in the living room and my son’s friend was in the kitchen and we both asked each other “What?” at the same time. We had heard a female voice coming from the area between the two rooms. No one else was downstairs.
The night before the reading I walked past the television and out of the room to talk to my husband in his office. After about a minute into our conversation, the TV turned on.
Having had experiences since I was about 13 or 14, as described in another post of mine, Where The Ghosts Live, I have gotten used to the noises and activity. Knowing that my husband and I were headed to a psychic fair (don’t think I’m losing my mind when I say this, but,) just before we left the house, I spoke out loud, “If there is someone here and you want to make yourself known, tonight would be the night. You have always been welcome around me and will continue to be but I would love to know who your are.
As the reading continued, she shared some very wonderful information.
When Robyn touched on me having 3 children, I was not expecting what was to come. It was as if she was communicating with her directly. She told me that I was further along than I thought, close to my third month when I lost her. There was a reason she wasn’t born. She didn’t offer what the reason was and because she didn’t offer, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to know so I didn’t ask.
She asked if I wanted to know if the baby was a boy or girl. I told her that I thought I already knew. She confirmed that she was a girl without any information from me. “She is OK,” she said. “She is around your oldest son more than she is around you. She is around all the time but she really has a strong connection with him.”
Without prior knowledge of the above instances that had been happening at home, after a long meditative pause Robyn said, “She can actually manifest pretty well. So if you are seeing things in your house, that’s her.” So I had to ask, “Is there any way to ask if she turned the television on last night?” “Oh, she does more than that. She turns on televisions and she likes to annoy the girlfriend. She moves her stuff.” When I inquired if she liked Nichole, she said, “She comes across as a jokester. She’s just being playful. She’s saying, ‘I like to play with her.'” I didn’t catch her say that during the reading but I had recorded it and realized when I played it back. I wish I would have asked if she was there actually talking to Robyn.
She went on to say, “When you’re having a really bad day, that’s when you’re going to feel her. She’s the one who makes you laugh out of nowhere. That’s the energy she has, a really good energy.” Then she reiterated the attachment with Dan and that she likes to hide his girlfriend’s stuff.
After the reading I sent a text to Nichole. “Do you ever find that your things are not where you left them when you are at our house?” To which she replied, “Yessssssss!!” “Seriously. I will put a shirt in the top portion of my bag and when I go to get it, it’s all the way at the bottom. Why?” When I told her she was a little freaked out but comforted by the fact that what she had seen and what was going on was all done out of fun and that she wasn’t going crazy or in any danger.
After a brief pause she recalled how she had come into the house the other night and the lotion in her bag knocked into the staircase railing and hit the wood floor. We both heard it hit. She stood there for at least a minute and a half looking for it before realizing it was 3 or 4 steps up the staircase on the rug. She pointed out that we had both heard it hit the floor. I guess it may not be fair, but I feel that my daughter is going to start getting blamed every time something gets misplaced, even if it wasn’t her doing. This lightheartedness puts me at ease.
We moved on to the next subject and Robyn asked if my son had a medal that belonged to a great grandfather figure on my paternal side. I had never met my paternal grandfather’s father. This information did fit the grandfather on my mother’s side. She asked if he had been like a father figure to me. Indeed he had. My grandfather (the tallest man, in the picture on the left) spent a lot of time with me throughout my life and I was very close to him. He lived out of state but I would spend a few weeks there every summer growing up and he visited us often here. He would be my son’s great grandfather. I told her that we had something of his. She reiterated that she is seeing my son with his medal. “I have his old coin collection,” I told her. She said that him showing me that was just his way of saying that he is around us.
When I returned home, I took a look at one of the coins. It was inside a box that I hadn’t opened in years. ON the box was what looked like a military medal, inside the box was on of his many coins he left to me when he passed. I intended to ask Dan if he had one of them. He has a tendency to take things in his room and I find them much later. Before I could speak with him, I told my younger son, Austin the story. He has mentioned many times that he does not believe in ghosts or the afterlife. He was shocked and said, “I think she may have meant me. I was just looking at those coins yesterday.” Awesome!!!
The final thing we discussed of the paranormal realm was, if “Caitlin,” (that’s what we would have named my daughter,) has been around a lot when in my adult life, then who or what was behind the activity I’ve had in my life when my grandfather was alive and before I was ever pregnant. I’ve had paranormal apparitions and electronic manipulations since I was 14. She said that she could tell me, even before pulling the card that it was not a ghost. It was my spirit guide. After she pulled the card she said, “Yes, even the card shows a spirit guide. It is not female or male. It has been around much longer than 14. That’s just when you started noticing it. When you need a maternal type of nurturing, it gives female energy and when you need someone to stick up for you and be there to give you strength it is masculine.” How fascinating. All this time I thought the house I grew up in was haunted. But at the same time I couldn’t quite explain why I had experiences in every home I have lived in since then.
As I mentioned, I have never felt threatened by any of the activity that has surrounded me all these years. I do know that it is what has always held my interest in the paranormal. I will continue learning more as I move on with my life, but I can say that, not only have I never felt alone when I physically am , I will gain strength in knowing I am protected by my guardian angel, watched over and loved by my grandfather, who I miss dearly and loved by and cheered up by my daughter who I will one day know in another life.
