My husband, one of my best friends and two of her children went to visit the S. K. Pierce Haunted Victorian Mansion on Friday, October 18, 2013 during the Blood Moon/Lunar Eclipse. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the mansion, located in Gardner, MA, it IS haunted. There have been more than 7 confirmed deaths in the house. With the amount of paranormal experiences and findings that have occurred, it has been a well sought out location for paranormal investigators across the country and has been the subject of many famous TV shows and popular books. (See the links below for further information on the mansion.)
On Friday, the Spirit Sleepers Paranormal Investigators team was there hosting a psychic fair with several Rev. Witches from Salem available to perform Tarot and Palm readings, divination seminars, fork bending and table tipping. My goal was to enjoy the tour with my group and have my palm read. After the tour the line for palm reading was too long but there was an opening for a Tarot reading. They have always fascinated me but I was afraid to have a reading because I thought I would be told something negative about my future and I understand how manifestation works and didn’t want to attract something like that into my life.
I didn’t want to leave without participating in something so I decided to take a deep breath and give it a try. Robyn was my reader and she immediately put me at ease. She assured me that no one should ever give a negative reading and if they started to, that I should get up and walk out.
You may find through my blogs, if you don’t already know me, I’m an open book so I have no problem sharing with you the results of my readings (I also had a palm reading and my husband had a tarot reading from a different person. I recorded all of it so I could reflect on it and also bring you the results. That’s how I’ll be able to quote some things that were said.) This will be broken down over several posts due to the lengthy content.
I was given several gifts during the reading and I do not regret in at all. The fist thing Robyn picked up on will be today’s subject. She asked if I was aware of what an Empath was. (This is how I have labeled myself for many years.) She said that I’m not quite an Empath but similar. Instead of taking on people’s emotions, I take on their energy. She explained that I need to learn how to ground it but that I will never be able to stop taking it in. The ability to do so is why I’m here. She explained that when I walk through a mall that I actually take on the energy of others, which explains why my mood changes in crowds. If someone is carrying negativity I actually take it on.
Robyn went on to say that the best way to learn to release that energy is to meditate and practice breathing in through my nose and out through my mouth which draws in the good energy and puts the bad energy back out. She stated, “It’s actually not a bad thing that you do it, it’s actually the reason you are here. Because there are very few people who would still be able to walk or even function (if they had the ability or had to carry that energy.)”
In crowds it’s not that I just feel the energy, I take it on. It’s one of the reason’s I have trouble sleeping. She explained that what I would consider “the thoughts churning in my head,” are the energies that I collected throughout the day from others.
I asked, “What can I do with this. How can I use this in a positive way to help others if it is the reason I’m here,” to which she replied, “That’s what you’re doing. You’re actually taking it so they don’t have to deal with it.”
Another scenario in which this affects me is in communication with my children. She pointed out that when I have moments when I snap, it is not because of that person, it is because I drew in that energy. She states that it’s not my personality to snap. This has become an issue over the years with my oldest son and I. The arguments can get pretty intense. So I asked, “Is there any way to tell if my son is the same way?” After meditating for a moment over the cards she said that he is a little different, he is actually an Empath. He draws in emotions from other people and suggested that I take some time to teach him how to deal with this.
I will be doing much more research on both abilities.
It’s amazing to be able to understand why I feel the way I do in crowds, why I can’t sleep and why I get depressed some days and cannot explain it. I’m sure this will help my son and I better understand each other and be able to improve our relationship as well as help him understand why he gets emotional quickly. This may be why he was diagnosed with ADHD. Perhaps it was due to him picking up on the other children’s emotions and not being able to understand how to get rid of them.
What a gift to know why I’m here and how to continue helping other people.
This has given us a great deal to think about. This is only part one of my reading. She goes on to explain 3 of the reasons why I have had paranormal activity surrounding me throughout my lifetime, what she sees for my youngest son, and bits of my future. Please follow this blog for more.

What a fascinating experience. The couple of times I’ve had a professional Tarot reading it’s been all “you’ll meet a tall dark stranger” type stuff. This sounds like this one was actually useful. Learning to stay grounded is super important, and even more important than that if one has those sorts of abilities.
Visiting you from the UBC Facebook page. Happy Monday!
I will definitely be looking into how to ground it. I can already notice the effects more and have started breathing through it. But I know there’s more to it. Thank you for visiting.

First of all, how cool that you visited the SK Pierce Haunted Victorian Mansion! Although it sounds like a real-life “American Horror Story”! Secondly, I love your in depth description of your Tarot reading. It sounds like you truly received some valuable insights into not only how you operate but how you and your son related to one another. Congrats! I look forward to reading Part 2…
Thank you Kim! There’s nothing very scary there but as I mentioned, I wasn’t alone so I can’t say how I’d feel if I had been. I’m grateful that you’ll check back for the next part.

As a card reader myself, I find this fascinating of course. My middle son is an Empath and has been aware of this most of his life.. It’s a challenging path and he needs much time alone to ground himself. He’s still learning to harness this “gift” but as you know, and he knows, it will take a life time.. Meditation is key and those alone moments when you can find them. Good luck on this journey. It will definitely one of enlightenment. 🙂
Thank you Mimi. Can you point me in the direction of a website or book that would best discuss ways to deal with and understand being an Empath? Also, the woman who read me said I was a “Soul Collector.” The only thing I can find online is an evil entity. I would love to find techniques to learn how to stay grounded and get rid of the “energy that I collect from others.” Any suggestions? Thank you for stopping by. I love your site!
What a wonderful reading – and to be able to get a better understanding of your relationship with your son! I’m so tempted to have a reading, but would want to make sure that it was someone “good” !
I’m not sure where you are from but I highly recommend asking the people you are considering how long they have been reading and how often. Robyn said she has been practicing more than, I think, 27 years. If you go, let me know how it goes.
