So I’d like to know peoples stories about how they got interested in all this metaphysical stuff. What was the journey like for you? Anything in particular you did like meditating, doing tarot, having a mentor etc.?
I’m in the beginning of my journey, but would love to hear other peoples stories!

I feel other people’s emotions. It isn’t as fun as it sounds. I am in the process of developing methodologies to better protect myself and use the *skill* more skillfully.

I did a “palm reading” to a friend just for fun few years ago when I was 18, held her hand and closed my eyes, saw a very uniquely looking religious building, told my friend about it, she said it sounds like the synagogue her great grandpa used to work at. I thought to myself “Huh that’s weird, must be a coincidence” We were in a group so I did a few more “palm readings” to my friends, in which all of them I saw with my third eye visions that all correlated to my friends’ deceased relatives, usually grandparents or great grandparents. They showed me pictures of personal things that I wouldn’t understand until sharing with my friends which then would be in shock and confirm that’s their dead relative talking through lol. And that’s how my spiritual exploration began.

I was interested as soon as I could remember, so about 3 years old. Nothing introduced me to it. Just seemed like something that was out there.
Around 4 was when I could randomly sense things and started to have some interesting dreams.
5 was when I started to question why I couldn’t manifest.
8 – 11 was when I started to experience the paranormal.
11 – 13 is when I started to have premonitions.
15 is when mostly all of my senses died.
29 is when I started to question again why I couldn’t manifest. Life has been rather harsh, so I’ve been trying to find a way to take some kind of control.

The first time i remember my path towards spirituality, occultism and philosophies is that i was getting interested in **Lilith**. Her story, who she is etc, what she went through. And soon after that someone recommended me reading **”Liber Lilith”.** Though i am not sure how much of Liber Lilith could be truth or is truth nonetheless was my reading time a time where i used my time, energy and attention towards Lilith for a while and oh boi Lilith became aware of me and let me know real quick. For me personally she feels very motherly, loving and protecting but also not touching you with silk gloves to teach you a lesson or help you grow.
My journey so far is full of blockades, limitations that i have brought upon myself with my behavior >!(drug abuse) !< and other circumstances like the media and our surroundings, how we grow up and with whom. And it still is full of blockades and limitations but step by step im clearing them, growing and expanding.
If you ask me about anything in particular what i did that i think is important to share here is that through insecurities within myself and the lack of any experience at all in those topics lead me to reach always to others for things and in the spiritual communities are so many gatekeepers and people who tell you how to practice or how not to practice or that this or that what you are doing cannot be true etc that it almost made me stop my spiritual path. The lesson i learned is that everyone has to walk and find their own path and external output should be taken with a grain of salt. One of the biggest help in my path is intuition and learning to distinguish from your intuition of where your logic overplays intuition.
The things i liked the most on my path when i started is when things worked, like requesting a strong sign from spirit guides and then you get it under such circumstances that once the last piece has been aligned in the puzzle you suddenly realize it all and it washes over you and feels like a wonder if you never experienced anything “occult” for the lack of a better word (my main language is not English)
I truly wish you the very best and may you grow and expand to where ever you want to go from the bottom of my hearth. And it does not matter to me if you will walk the path of the service to self or the path of the service to others.
Much love and many blessings!

Long story… I was born with a midbrain injury. Which left me emotionally closed off from others – I was always interested in spiritual development but had no obvious gifts. Occasionally I would see someone’s thoughts and recognize it as, not mine. I periodically saw a Torus pattern in the grass or leaves. All childhood I meditated on nothing. I became an artist.
Fast forward to age 34-midbrain was diagnosed-followed by 8 weeks of developmental movement therapy. Then I had a spontaneous kundalini opening. It felt as if I had been living in a shell before but now I was open to knowing, visions, ghosts. I suddenly had no boundaries. I remember the first time I felt the warmth of another persons heart.
Not surprisingly I had a breakdown, followed by years of challenge to regain balance. I eventually traveled to Findhorn, Tibet, practiced Vipassana which restored my mind, and I learned neutrality. I then went to graduate school for fine art, and ended up at psychic school which integrated what I had learned- I learned to be grounded, centered, and how to read auras professionally.
I’ve never stopped learning and developing my gifts. Now I learn from spirit. I am continually surprised by people and their amazing energy. That torus pattern from childhood turned out to be my guardian angel – is still with me. …

Lol I can write so much about it!
My first contact with it was when I met a guy online and we ended up being together for a few months and he was into tarot and Norse paganism and other stuff and I was deeply interested by his stories. He told me about his spiritual animal and I was so eager to find mine! Then we split and I met a girl, or it could’ve been a boy since it was a fake, that started telling me about Norse paganism and the gods and I loved all of that but I didn’t dig into it, but I was already starting to unlock things.
What made me start really was me trying to solve my marriage actually. I really loved him back then. And I wanted things to work out, even though I knew he wasn’t the one and that it would end up in divorce (I found the one, but we aren’t together either, cause twin flame shit).
Then I got into chaos magick cause of the servers and other stuff there. After that I started shamanism cause I found my animals. Then I was told I was one of liliths daughters, and that I was an ancestral witch, whatever that means. I started working with Lilith and asked her for help to move out and break up my marriage. She helped, I marked her on my skin. After that I never stopped. Started studying more about magic. Learned a bit about lots of kinds of magic, but I connected with Norse gods. Freyja is my go to and I absolutely love her. I started using runes to heal and I am pretty good at it, since the healing energy runs down the family blood. Grandma, dad and me all have the same power.
Then I started doing cleanses and work more with my visualization that has always been pretty good.
I went through an awakening in 2021, learned tarot, and had a bunch of experiences. Began feeling more the energies and seeing things with the corner of my eyes. But the shit really started to go down last year when I met my twin flame. Then… shit show. Everything is coming at me, at once. I have been having vivid dreams, enhancing my psychic abilities, feeling stuff more accurately, I feel him all the time and the stuff he feels and thinks and go through even if he’s not talking to me, I am healing a lot and facing my demons, got to talk to my guides and actually see them, which had never happened, and I didn’t hear them speak either. Also working towards astral projecting. So… lots of stuff happening right now. I am overwhelmed and exhausted but things are getting in place.
It’s hard, it hurts, but it pays off at the end.

Ahh this sounds so stupid but what triggered my spiritual awakening was my breakup with my first love like 3 years ago. Tiktok had mainly helped my persistent curiosity for it- it was like a coincidence😂 the minute we broke up the universe started revealing all these different signs. Ever since then I’ve been manifesting etc. I haven’t really tried as much meditation but I’d love to (especially now that I’ve started doing tarot readings and have upcoming final exams) I’ve also visited a psychic once which was quite a cool experience. I’d like to say my journey so far is decent but I have so much more to explore!!

I fall under mentor. My mother started tapping into her abilities and began teaching us what she learned. It made surprising sense about all the woes around us and made a positive improvement on my mental health when applied. From there, I spent time working on myself and learned what my innate abilities were. Not through practice, but with validation that what I was feeling and sensing was real and not just random thoughts and feelings. Once you can put a name to things, you can figure out what it is and make it yours.

If you’ve seen my profile… just a South East Asian kid’s dream where the 2000s Asia love the paranormal stuff. My first clearest memory of “being psychic” is a feeling in the gut that an ex-President would not survive his sickness at age 7.
It jumpstarts near the time I’m going to enter middle school. By 5th grade I start picking up drawing as a real hobby and starts drawing characters inspired by random people in my elementary… which would turn out to be my future classmates. The 2nd half of my 6th grade I started having premonition dreams (but it never benefits me).
Now middle school is the rather messed-up one… I think our whole year either have activated their psychic powers or got surrounded by too much coincidences and supernatural activities. There’s a LOT of name twins here, at least 40 pairs. Sometimes I picked up my friends repeating the exact same event without them knowing. Our study tours have always at least one group of kids haunted. I even met my now-suspected twin flame/mirror soul so quite the weird syncs with them. I looked up at the sky while thinking “Are you playing with me, God?!” at least tens of times there.
[TW: mention of self harm] Still my personal worst was 9th grade where a certain classmate just physically endangered himself on school grounds at least 5 times in the year. Back there it was SPIKED UP, an extra bothersome intuition in the gut, headaches (i guess both my first real awakening and mental health, he definitely traumatized me until now) cats approaching and being cuddly to me by themselves.
High school also had psychic experiences accompanied by how the building has reached 100 years of age, but by then, I think middle school takes the cake.
The whole thing’s pretty much dormant right now, it only “works” when I think something’s missing/left out or not. The mental health side wins (I’m currently depressive with adult ADHD symptoms)

I grew up in the church, where I identified as a prophetess. Now that I’m no longer religious I’ve settled on “seer” instead. Even though I’m naturally inclined, it’s in adulthood that I’ve actively been trying to fine-tune my abilities. I’ve always been attracted to the spiritual and metaphysical, and I was a young child when I realized I was seeing things that weren’t in our physical realm but the spiritual. I would like to begin taking actual courses rather than relying on books I’ve gotten to strengthen my skills now.

A witch was casting spells on me, and measures had to be taken to comprehend and stop what was going on
