When I was little, I believed in magic.
In my imagination, animals could talk, toys came to life and I could fly like a bird or a fairy.
I'd spend hours playing, creating and daydreaming.
As I got older, I became more aware of the expectations from my parents and the other neighborhood kids.
Daydreaming was no longer encouraged, especially at school, so I focused on learning and obeying.
I had deep thoughts and psychic experiences but didn’t share them with anyone.
I didn’t want to appear strange or weird.
At night in bed, I huddled with an army of stuffed animals, frightened and unable to sleep because of the unknown energy that swirled around me.
I felt and and questioned things that other people didn't.
Sometimes I knew things before they happened, freaking out friends and relatives who then began to look at me differently.
In my teens, I tried to shut it all down.
I wanted to be normal, like the popular girls at school who didn't question authority, or spend their time reading and drawing.
So I distanced myself from my creativity and my spirit and tried to fit in.
On the outside, I looked okay.
I had friends, relationships and thought I was having a good time.
But the good times left me feeling lost- and very alone.
It wasn't until my late twenties that I rediscovered my intuition, and realized just how valuable it could be for navigating the world around me.
In my thirties I married the man who I predicted at nineteen years old would come into my life.
He not only accepted my "weirdness", but encouraged and supported me.
Still it wasn't easy.
But, I persevered, with determination and humor.
Always, with humor.
I read books about past lives, mediumship and the paranormal.
I took classes and met other "weirdos" who made my feel not just normal, but special in a way that felt completely natural.
As I developed my own gifts, I realized that I could help people.
So I studied hypnosis, past life regression, and energy healing.
I became a hypnosis instructor and taught others as I continued to learn.
Then, in the summer of 2010, I had an experience that cracked me wide open and shook me to the core.
But in a good way.
I'm now living my life with a purpose that is exciting and joyful.
I'm a guide, a teacher, and an instrument of divine wisdom.
I teach people what I've learned, so they too can help others on their unique paths to self-discovery and healing.
I've found my "normal" - and it's magic.
