Something you might like to know about me…
I’ve always been aware of ‘things that go bump in the night’. Yes it did scare me a little, but yet I found it fascinating at the same time. I’ve seen shadows, felt things etc but never actually saw a ‘real ghost’!! I’ve watched countless movies and heard stories like any other person and I didn’t have the ‘gift’. If I’m being totally honest, at the time I wish I did have that ‘gift’ as I wanted to see a ghost!! Aarrrghhh – what was I thinking? But I just knew deep down that I felt a connection somehow!
My sister was into reading Tarot cards and I’d get her to read my cards. She used to get me to do her reading (which I did reluctantly!) but I had no idea what I was doing – I just read the pictures! We would go and see the Tarot readers at fayres and I thought they were fantastic. But it was at one fayre we were at, that absolutely threw me sideways. This lady (who I’d never met) was reading my cards and paused, then she said ‘I don’t know why I’m reading your cards for you – you can do this yourself!’ Well, talk about gobsmacked lol. I just shrugged it off though and I never gave it another thought (as you do!). Another fayre I attended, some lady send I was a healer, and another said I have my Grandad with me and he will be my guide! Of course, I didn’t do anything with this information. Another Fayre I attended I was interested in the crystal pendulum talk. I attended and was very intrigued with it. I held it over my hand and it went crazy! My sister said ‘how are you doing that?’, I didn’t have a clue. Afterwards, I found the crystal stall and I signed up for a crystal workshop there and then, not knowing what to expect.
Well, this workshop was fascinating. I also know now that I opened up my spiritual connection whilst in there (this doesn’t happen to everyone btw!) and I believe this was the start of my spiritual journey (I didn’t know it at the time). Then the teacher said I should do Reiki (she didn’t know why). I didn’t know what it was but it was a spur of the moment kinda thing, so I did it! I got attuned to Reiki Level 1 and have not looked back and since then lots of doors have opened up for me, for which I am truly grateful for and it’s getting better by the day – another story for which I will leave for another day!
I didn’t realise until now as I’m writing my story, but I believe I was a little lost back then. I did kind of know that I was drawn to the spiritual life, but didn’t know how. Most of the time I went with my gut feeling, like the crystal workshop and Reiki. I’m so glad I did as my life as turned out so differently. My jobs/career has changed completely, for the better I might add, and I have met some amazing people along the way. But most of all, I have changed. I have become the person I was meant to become, who I am supposed to be – more spiritual, more confident. Of course, there’s still lots of room for improvement as I’m not perfect in any sense, but I am so much happier now than I ever was. I feel freer. I enjoy my life a lot more now.
There have been so many different changes since I opened up my spiritual side but I would not change it for anything now. I have learnt to follow my instincts, my gut feelings and to listen to my soul. I have listened (and still listening constantly) to help me become the best version of me, to live the best life I can. You can too with the right help and guidance. Don’t give up hope, the life you desire – it is out there, you just need a little guidance to put you on the right path for you. We only have one life on this earth, so let’s make the most of it!
