Hello, My name is Yuko - intuitive tarot reader, empath, clairsentient, clairvoyant, and, on occasion, medium. The dearly departed don't communicate with me often. Sometimes, they are present and have their own messages to relay, and if that happens, I can and will do so. Usually, they offer their unique insights into a situation or just want to let you know that they are still watching over you. When I was younger, my mother realized that her youngest daughter had The Sight. It is a natural gift passed down in the women in my mother's family every third (3rd) generation. When I had turned eight (8) years old, she gifted me her personal Lenormand deck, and have been reading intuitively ever since. Unfortunately, my childhood was wrought with experiencing domestic violence between many members of my family. While that was my "normal," I knew it wasn't what I wanted. My parents had divorced when I was two (2) years old. So, fast-forward to thirteen (13) year old me and I moved in with my father. It wasn't all rainbows and roses in my father's house either. While he is a loving and doting father, and mostly supportive, my personal beliefs and natural gift clashed with his religious beliefs. My hands were tied because I was still young. Over the years, I struggled with actively practicing my father's religion while having strong views of my own. I always questioned the familiar structure of my childhood religion and whether or not my personal beliefs were right or wrong. This thought pattern carried well into my early adult years, continuously denying my natural gifts that were always at the surface. It would be easy (and probably more exciting) to say that there was a single, cataclysmic event where I fully embraced my gifts and off I went. Truth be told, it was a series of small but significant events that got me to where I am now. These stepping stones to embracing myself in my entirety has led to a community of incredible and unique people that I wouldn't trade for anything. It is my sincerest hope that if you find yourself in the dark, you can come to me to help you find the light. Be ready to be challenged as my messages are straightforward and not sugar-coated. I welcome everyone from all walks of life (LGBTQ+ friendly) and nonjudgemental.
"Life is the best teacher, just as it is. It is the toughest teacher. It won't tolerate slothfulness for long. It's always throwing some difficult problem your way and then seeing what you will do with it." ~Stephanee Killen While it may sound cliche, my experience comes from all areas of my life, which has either directly or indirectly prepared me to fulfill the role of a counselor (tarot reader). Even when I was young, it hurt my heart to see the world's injustices, especially those close to home. By the time I was eleven (11), it had become more consistent that my friends would come to me for help. I would hear the dark stories that were happening behind closed doors. As I got older, I realized it was more complex and complicated to be a shieldmaiden on a white horse - the Norse equivalent of a shining knight on his white steed, saving everyone from whatever danger they might be in. Growing up around domestic violence and a narcissist gave way to heightening my psychic gifts (empathy, clairsentience, clairvoyance, and mediumship) as an instinctual survival mechanism to stay safe around people who didn't understand themselves, what they were feeling or why, nor were they going to be honest about it. Also, being an empath draws in the lost, broken, lonely, and misfits. This exposure has taught me to be cautious, patient, and repeatedly reevaluate circumstances from all angles. After all, it's when you rush headlong into a situation without knowing all the details that cause mistakes and may eventually make you seem a fool. You might think that time in the military would have no crossover for being a tarot reader, but I beg to differ. In boot camp, they tear down who you were and rebuild you so you can become who you need to be. You learn to be more self-sufficient, self-reliant, and able to build camaraderie with strangers. The leadership skills that I have gained have made me more confident and a brighter beacon for those that seek me out. I know what it means to be tired, to be pushed further than your limits. To ache physically, emotionally, and mentally. I've been on both sides of the coin: the wife that stays home waiting for her husband to return from deployment and the one deployed always reaching to go home. But even if you disagree, I'm still a valuable asset to those here wishing to speak to someone who knows what they are going through in living a military life. I see you and welcome you. In more recent years, I've been actively learning various skills, methods, and systems of the occult and new age spirituality. While I am an intuitive reader, much of the material that I go through allows for the repetition of my skills and perfecting my Craft, such as numerology, astrology, and different methods/systems.
