I came into this world, I think, wired in a different way to the others. I spent time talking with the animals, fancying myself as Dr. Dolittle! I started having psychic/spiritual experiences very young. I can remember seeing the spirit of a woman in my room, when I was 6 years old. It frightened me badly, unfortunately, and I don’t know why, because she looked nice.
I’ve had precognitive dreams all of my life….some good, many very sad. I have seen the passings of every loved one before it happened. I also remember seeing the US flag flying at half-mast, 2 days before 9-11….it was a vision that left me shaken, and wondering why.
I had a near death experience at 18. I was paralyzed from the head down for months, from a fluke virus called Guillame Barre Syndrome. I went through the tunnel, and found my father and grandfather on the other side, telling me that it wasn’t my time….it took another year to learn to walk and do things for myself again!
In my adult years, I’ve seen quite a few ghosts, some were as solid as you and I, and it took me a bit to realise that they weren’t like you and I! so the metaphysical side of life has always been forefront with me.
I think I must have been a gypsy, or seer in another life, as I was drawn to the Tarot cards at the early age of 8 or 9. Lucky for me, I was raised in a very liberal, very open household with 2 parents who were on their own spiritual journey and never tried to push me in any one direction.
I thought that Tarot was “it” for over 30 years, not really giving much credence to other oracle systems as being “serious”. (I’ve met alot of tarot readers like that through the years 🙂 ) But that all changed in the last few years, as I met others who worked with other cards, and got amazing results. The Playing Cards have become of major interest to me, since getting to know a professional reader here in Halifax. Her accuracy rate has been astounding, with nitty gritty that I never got from the Tarot…so finally, at 48, my eyes are open wide! eager to explore all the wonderful systems I turned my back on for so long.
As for me? I’m female, American by birth, residing in Canada and LOVING it!! married to a Brit and have tons of kids between us. Life is full……. but a morning doesn’t go by when I don’t do a tarot reading, a lenormand reading and a playing card reading! that and a cup of tea, and the day starts right 🙂
