Who is SunnyJ Shores?

Learn more about SunnyJ and her qualifications for providing Master Tarot Readings and serving you as a spiritual advisor.

How long has SunnyJ been reading Tarot?

40+ years SunnyJ has been reading Tarot around the world. She learned to read Tarot from her Grandmother, who taught her using a regular deck of cards. SunnyJ had to learn to intuit the 5th suit. Later, as an adult, SunnyJ would discover that Carl Jung had studied Tarot as well. By combining the interpretations of Carl Jung and the original Italian interpretations, SunnyJ brings forth insights from the deck that continues to astound folks.

SunnyJ is uniquely equipped to not only blend hermetic and academic knowledge of Tarot, she brings decades of spiritual study and hands on experience having lived among Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, and Judeo-Christians. She graduated with an MA in Human Development and Psychological Counseling from ASU, Boone, NC 2004.

What is SunnyJ's spiritual perspective?

SunnyJ was raised in the Church of Christ yet wanted to learn more about the mosaic of religions in the world. She has studied the works of Lao Zu and visited the temple dedicated to him in Weifang China.  She lived among Tamils for two years developing a better understanding of Hindu. She also lived among Muslims in Malaysia, adopting their lifestyle to better empathize. Throughout her travels, studies, and immersion experiences, she had resisted any labels. However in 2010, she took vows of Sak Yant under Ajarn Koh in Ayutthaya Thailand. She lives by a Pagan Yantra path. This is a sub-sect of Buddhism that utilizes Sanskrit. There are only 5 groups that actively use Sanskrit today, 3 in the Middle East, 1 in India and Thailand respectively. There are "unordained" groups in Cambodia who "do their own thing". There are some who are confused thinking that Sak Yant uses "ancient Khmer" when in fact, "ancient Khmer" is Sanskrit.

Why does SunnyJ charge different prices on different platforms?

While SunnyJ is not under a vow of poverty per se, she is under the standard monk's mantra to accept in gifts/"love donation" only what one would use in one day. This is seen in Thailand as monks perform sunrise blessings for no more than a bowl of rice and what fruits can be carried in a simple bag. 

It's difficult for her clients to provide her with rice and fruit, so instead she carefully calculates her "daily need" then cross references this with numerology. 

It's true that on a corporate site, SunnyJ charges $2.46 per minute - however the corporate platform retains 68% of the call revenue. With PremiumChat, clients pay less ($1.79 ) and SunnyJ earns more per minute. A Win-Win. PremiumChat always handles the sensitive data. 

By offering her services through PremiumChat's platform, she is able to greatly reduce the cost of the call. This allows the querent to be more relaxed and able to open their minds to SunnyJ, rather than be stressed over per minute rates of $5 - $8 or more that other psychics charge. 

She is aware that in the modern world, many would view her low price point as a sign that she does not "value her skills". Considering her lifetime experience, academic background, &multiple immersion experiences with religious communities, her market value would price her out of the range of the average person. Therefore, it's highly recommended that the querent who seeks SunnyJ's insights, always speak to her with respect and humility due the Bodhisattva she has become. 

I'm confused about memberships, could you explain it to me?

Yes of course! There are two membership available through this website. One membership is with PremiumChat. This allows clients to streamline the experience of arranging a call. You can read more about this membership in the section below.

How to Prepare for a Tarot Reading

Here are a few tips on how to best prepare for your Tarot Reading. As a retired teacher, SunnyJ knows there are many different learning styles. While these are just guidelines, you are welcome to prepare in ways that you are most comfortable with.

Is my location important?

Yes, ideally you would be in a quiet place where you are physically comfortable and able to relax your mind and body.

What if I am very nervous or emotionally wrought?

If you are feeling very nervous, keep in mind that SunnyJ is an incredibly kind and generous soul. She is extremely patient, caring, and nurturing. 

However, if you are still feeling nervous, or perhaps you are emotionally over wrought with tension, anger, frustrations etc - then you might want to consider listening to a quick 15 minute chakra cleanse before you request to arrange a call . This will help you to settle your emotions and support the connectivity of your mind to SunnyJ's. 

This chakra cleanse is offered free on YouTube. the composer is Bill, someone whom SunnyJ has a great deal of confidence in and respect for his work. 

Aside from clearing my mind of intense or negative emotions, what else can I do to prepare for my Tarot Reading?

  • Have a few questions in mind before you call. Tarot is an extremely complex tool. The language used and wording of the question makes a huge difference on the depth of details you can get from the cards. SunnyJ uses  cards best adapted for use with the English Language. She occasionally offers Tarot readings in Thai, but then uses a different deck. Language and wording is important. So design your questions with mindful care. 

  • Have pencil/pen and paper handy to jot down notes. 

  • After your reading, make notations on a calendar or Google reminders for important dates 

  • Keep your notes in a handy folder or notebook - as the thematic answers you get from several Tarot  Reading sessions can also be insightful for your overall evolutionary path. 

  • Ensure that distractions are minimized; turn off the TV/radio, close doors or windows if there are noisy distractions outside. If you have children, timing a Tarot reading during your child's nap can be dicy, but worth the effort.

If you have a question not answered above, please let SunnyJ know.
