I've heard before that the path meant for you usually is the one you've been avoiding. I believe that sums up the initial part of my journey in regards to not only accepting but walking proud and authentically in the path of a spiritual healer. I've always been a mystic and had a strong pull to it since childhood. I actually had strong abilities as a child where I was able to see and feel(and much later read) the energies around me intensely however I did indeed try to block these gifts out due to lack of understanding as well as growing up in an environment where this wasn't encouraged. Internalizing and suppressing this led to it expressing itself in acute anxiety throughout my childhood, teens, and even early adulthood.
In my early twenties I moved across the country and finally felt free to explore this "other" side of me. With time I learned to differentiate the energies around me, learn/read the messages that were trying to come through, and in a nutshell act accordingly. During this time as well I was exploring the art of tarot. I bought my first deck in secret when I was about 17 or 18 years old, but didn't seriously go about the act of learning it until this time. I found that the more I flowed with spirit, instead of resisting, the better I became at navigating life in general. I still kept this "new" way of life private except for a select few who I was close with who would come to me for advice and such.
I've always loved helping people. It's been a passion of mine for as long as I could remember. I realized in recent years that I could genuinely help people with my gift for reading. It was daunting and a bit nerve racking at first because I was very concerned with how I would be received, but now I walk this path firmly and proudly. This is what I was meant to do and how I was meant to help others. And I love it.
