“Be who you were before they told you what to be.”
I have always been claircognizant/clairvoyant. Sometimes clairaudient.
All while under the umbrella of traditional Christianity.
I didn’t go looking for it, far from it. I was terrified of sinning, lol.
It started when I was 17. The majority of that year, I delved into things that only now in 2016-17 I’m finally getting back to.
It was my spiritual birthright, the natural progression I took while dedicated to Love and curious about Life, being carefully led to each experience by the Creator and what guides and angels were assigned me. Thought it was all “Him” at the time. 🙂
After I turned 18, I let other people take the reins of my spiritual development for a time. I wanted to learn from them, and I did. I grew a lot, and I’m grateful.
But in a few instances, the times my gifts tried to show up in my own way, they were met with the same reaction (albeit toned down) that those who walk with the clairs have be given for time out of mind.
One of the biggest things I was told is that words like telepathy didn’t honor God. And I was impressed with the opinion that those gifts I was talking about experiencing hadn’t been fully submitted and purified so I needed to be careful with them.
Do these words sound familiar?
I’m so sorry. It can take a lot to get them out of your ears and heart, to open up to the free flow you once trusted implicitly and blessed many in.
But my friend, I’m so very glad you at least found your way here. You are not and never have been alone.
Love is Love. Evil cannot own that. Ever. A gift is a gift.
Criteria: is it bringing you and or the person you are sharing with closer to the Light, to Love, growth, or peace? Does your gift move you to more compassion and understanding for your fellow humans?
If you’re curious about opening back up to those woo-woo experiences again, (and YAY!!) I’ll list some websites and their owners who have helped me a lot.

I heard once that the original Christ-ians may have chosen (and may choose again) to indentify with that word BECAUSE it was meant as a slur. They wore it like a badge.
I feel the same way about Witch, Psychic, and Medium.
I used to believe people who identified that way were in the services of Evil. Thanks to Hollywood and cultural norms, that they were creepy, crazy, fake, harmful, intimidating, no-good, dirty, manipulative, scoundrels. And did I mention fake?
And that, no matter what, if you wanted to call yourself that or operate that way, you had to renounce Jesus.
That’s totally bogus, by the way. Christian Witches are a thing, Anglican Druids, Spiritual Mediums, even Athiest Psychics! I could go on all day because only YOU can tell the world who you are and how you are going to walk in that gift.
The only thing that truly matters, I feel, is connecting with your heart and whatever guides or tools you use for your clients highest and best good.
For me, now, to take on these names is to walk in those shoes fully. Not letting myself off easy by calling myself simply an Intuitive Reader.
If you are in a position or conviction where you do not embrace these names, more power to ya! Authenticity is best. Do what you can Real-ly embody. 🙂
The more I learn about science, from Tesla and Einstein to quantum physics, the more I understand what witches, shamans, and mediums have been doing all this time!! It’s amazing!! MAGIC IS REAL!! The Secret, Law of Attraction, Numerology, tuning into the energy signature of a person or animal whose matter has passed on… it’s all REAL!!
And like anything, it is NOT inheirantly Evil. Pretty much nothing is, it’s all about the heart intention of the individual going into it that colors the result.
Oh, and then the perception of the individuals witnessing the result. Perspective is everything.
So, I choose to call myself a Witch and a Psychic Medium to open dialogue about all that Is, and as a service to those who came before me, misunderstood, to educate those who are willing to hear now about the science behind Magic.
Cheers to many paths and deeper understanding. 🙂
