I’ve always had a fascination w the occult when I was growing up, & I would spend hours researching it in encyclopedias, both online (when I got my first computer as a teenager), & in book form. When I was in eighth grade, a friend of mine told me that he practiced witchcraft, & gave me a spell to see what I thought (I didn’t know I wasn’t supposed to recite it until he freaked out after I told him that I tried it out). When I was in my junior year of high school, I remember going w/ my friends to this store that sold Wiccan supplies, & we’d go to our favorite park to practice.
I always wondered why I had this fascination w/ the occult… I knew that I am psychic, & as I got older, my abilities developed more (I get premonitions, & can sense spirits). Growing up, I always heard a little bit of a story involving how I almost died of SIDS as a newborn, & that my maternal grandmother, who was into Santeria back then, went to her santero (forgot the actual term) & asked him what she had to do to save my life (I was in the hospital for at least a week). She would bring him into where I was in the hospital, & he’d perform his rituals.
About a year or two ago, my mom told me a more in depth story of what went on w/ the guy who performed the rituals, & she said that my grandmother told her that he said that “in order for me to have inner peace, I was supposed to become a saint after I hit the double digits (forgot how old). That never ended up happening, thankfully (I became a vegetarian at fourteen, & the idea of going into a religion that involves sacrificing animals is very upsetting to me), because she left Santeria a few years after & became a born-again Christian. However, she did tell my mom before she converted that the guy had told her that I would be “special”.
Anyway, now I’m forty years old, & looking to learn how to develop my abilities more. I’d like to learn how to read tarot cards, runes, & oracle cards… But I don’t want to be overwhelmed when I start, mainly due to the fact that I have a crappy attention span, since I’m on different meds.
So yeah, thanks for reading this far… Hope you understand my babbling. Lol
