House Blessing Alter

Growing up these words were dangerous. Sometimes I still find them difficult to utter aloud. Too many people fear what they do not know or understand and all too often condemn truly beautiful things based on that fear. Born an empath into a christian cult faith I lived with fear everyday of my life. I had no idea why I felt a push and pull within myself, why I felt so much, why I always felt the need to hide who I truly was. I could say I wish I’d known what an empath was when I was young, it sure would have helped to know how I always seemed to know exactly what people needed and why feelings would sweep across me in an instant. Maybe I could have known how the trees really do speak, its not just in my head and how everything has a connection in nature, the true value of knowing the cycles of the moon and following them. To have known there really is something to astrology and how it can help us to know ourselves and others better. That the plethera of crystals the earth provides for us really are a source of energy and healing. Perhaps if I had known there is an energy residing in and all around us that we have the ability to hone , use and even project to create a multitude of wonderous things for ourselves. I grew up with the learned belief that the paradise belonged to those that were as little children. I understand that statement more now than ever. Children still believe in magick, they see it all around them in everything because truy it is. A Witch is one who knows how to gather their energy with intention. A Spell is that energy in use for whatever it may be. Magic is but the entire world around us. Divination is but just one way to explore where we are where we are going and the ways we may be able to get there. The Pentagram is a representation of the elements and Spirit so that we may remember we are always connected. I could wish I had known so many things, mostly known them sooner rather than so much later. However when it comes down to it I only wish I had known that Spirit has given us all we need to grow, all we need sits right there inside of us waiting for us to release the fear and find the strength to go beyond what seems possible. To embrace each other and the magick we hold inside.

The Sensitive Side of Paranormal

The paranormal has fascinated and terrified many over the years. There are so many questions and stigmas surrounding this topic including the grand question of :“What constitutes the title – psychic”.20171022_144113

With the ever growing amount of interest, as well as the swelling number of paranormal teams, there is lingering skepticism surrounding the concept of “the psychic”. In regards to a paranormal investigation there will always be a need for a healthy amount of skepticism.   Those that have more a scientific approach feel apprehensive about adding a member who claims to possess a “sixth sense.”   I’ve managed to come across one paranormal investigation team that deems a member with extra sensory talents as highly valuable. As Empathic as I am, I feel it important to state that I’m not some self proclaimed “psychic”, nor do I have any love for that particular label.  I observe what most call a paranormal experience.  This is something that has been an element of my life, even before I was aware of it.  I have the ability not only to feel, but to take on the energy of a person, a room or even a general area. At times I receive certain words or images, which for the most part are incomplete.  To be clear, there are no true Hollywood movie visions that give the viewer the whole story.  What I get offers me insight as well as questions I feel are pertinent to the situation.

Before joining the team I had never been tested with the Zener Cards.  My team leads run me through a battery of these tests before every outing. Even people who are open and extremely sensitive like myself get nervous when being tested in this manner.  I am certainly no exception.  It allows me to focus in on an unexpected level creating an opportunity to center myself.  At the same time keeping me humble. Ego has no place where spirits and intuition is concerned.

I find that I have an ability to draw attention from people or clients, as most empaths’ do.  I find this helpful in regards to interview an individual that is the subject of a paranormal haunting.  Even in this day and age of curiosity into the paranormal, most in the Bible Belt find it difficult  to explain strange occurrences.  They are hesitant when using the word “haunted” to describe what they’ve been experiencing to perfect strangers. That glazed look that creeps through their eyes knowing they almost definitely sound like a raving lunatic. My team listens attentively to the client, and some hone in for clues of sincerity   I can literally feel the emotion running through the client as they speak. Having the ability to identify with someone experiencing these things, as well as an empatihic connect with them, is beyond words. In this way I know I may be able to help, encourage and even calm them in ways they never considered. I am happy to be a part of this team and look forward to many more investigations.
