When my grandma came from Guatemala, Mexico, she didn’t really know what to do for work. One day she decided she would start doing psychic readings through the tarot cards and other things. She was submerged into the world of white magic and the supernatural. These cards were important to her because this was her way of reading the future and she could work with them. I always wanted to use them too, but she said I wasn’t ready. That I was too young. But she started to get sick. She couldn’t use the cards anymore for she thought that open wounds and illnesses could taint the card’s purity. Before she passed away, fighting the diseases she had for years, she told me if anything were to happen to her, I would be given the cards and everything else involving them. She said to take good care of them because I could one day put them to good use again. She passed away not too soon after. So I have the cards and I am studying and researching what my grandma has been doing for years. Whether these cards hold anything supernatural or are just tarot cards, I don’t mind. These were one of the only things I have to remember her by. I hold these cards close to my heart. That’s why these are important to me.
