All Beliefs are Welcome Here!

Many people have asked me how I got started, so here's the story...

It begins, as many stories do, with a young boy with a broken heart. My great-aunt had just died, and my father had told me so bluntly... I cried for so long. Laying on my bed, eyes blurred by tears, I thought my mother had sat upon the bed and was stroking my hair. When I cleared my eyes and looked up, I saw a young boy about my age sitting on the bed. His eyes held a wisdom more profound than any I had ever seen, and I knew I was looking at something not of this material realm.

He told me his name was Michael, and stayed with me until I felt better. After that, I saw him a lot. He grew with me until I hit puberty. At that point, he showed himself as he was... like a middle-aged man, grey wings in his hair and bloodstains on his shirt. I knew he was the battle-angel by this time, but I still wasn't totally prepared. I have seen angels ever sence, and began to see demons as well.

Obviously, seeing angels lead me down the Christian path for a while. I went to church and prayed daily... until one day, I got the powerful impression that God wasn't listening. It was right about this time that I began to realize I could feel other people's emotions, especially strong ones, even in text, if they were feeling something strongly when they wrote it. With the realization that God wasn't listening, but the strong knoweldge that God existed, I went on a search. I read books and texts from religions from around the world. I took notes, and noted where they were most similar, and even asked Michael for help sometimes.

Using all this information, I took on a new code. Harm none. Magic is real. God is a woman. And just like that, I realized, the gods were listening to me again. My visions of angels and demons became stronger, as did my ability to feel other's emotions, but I stopped dreaming. It wasn't until my Junior year of high school that I met other pagans and was astounded that others believed the same thing I did. So I started studying Wicca, and took up my own ecclectic path, incorporating the knowledge that angels live.

I had other experiences... some good, some bad... but those are stories for another time.

I KNOW THE FEELING, IT CAN SOMETIMES BE ANNOYING, ESPECIALLY IN A CROWDED AREA. I HAVE BEEN EMPATHIC SINCE I WAS LIL, I HAVE TOUGHT MYSELF OVER THE YEARS HOW TO BE SELECTIVE ON WHOS EMOTIONS, AND THOUGHTS I INTERCEPT. I USUALLY GOT HEADACHES BEFORE I LEARNED HOW TO CONTROL IT. I CAN ALSO SEND THOUGHTS TO SELECTIVE INDIVIDUALS, ESPECIALLY IF I HAVE A CONNECTION WITH THEM. AS FOR FAMILY, I HAD A COUSIN DIRECT ME IN THE PATH I AM, WHEN HE DICOVERED THE OTHER ABILITIES THAT I HAVE. HE ALSO RESEARCHED MY FAMILY BLOODLINES, AND DISCOVERED OTHER THINGS. MY IRISH/SCOT LINES WERE FORCED BY ENGLISH LAW TO CONVERT FROM PAGANISM,THEY ALSO DID WITCHCRAFT, TO CHRISTIANITY. SINCE THAN I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING MY FAMILY TREE. MY COUSIN CLAIMED THAT I AM WHAT THEY WOULD CALL A BLOODLINE WITCH.I PLAN ON DOING A BLOG ON THE FAMILY EVENTUALLY. SO I PLAN ON LEAVING YOU IN THE DARK FROM HERE. BLESSED BE.

Thanks so much for sharing, and for your comment in my blog. i'm empathic as well, although your "gift" sounds much stronger than mine. When I was younger I avoided crowded places for fear of being overwhelmed with other's emotions. I finally learned to block them.

I also "pick" thoughts out of peoples minds, mostly thoughs that I'm connected to, and I'll blurt out exactly what they were just thinking. Sometimes, a little embarassing, hehe.

I understand your camelion approach to life as well. I also did that, blending into crowds, big or small... standing right there and yet...no one would see me. And I used to stand (still do) outside of myself especially if I felt threatened, but... that's another blog. Take care my friend, and thank you again
