The Littlest Witch
Merry Meet :)))) I was born with very strong psychic gifts and from a very early age I was seeing spirits. It's not something that anyone around me believed in so I was told that what I was seeing didn't exist. Try as I might to not see what was there I still saw them. So I went looking for answers very young.
I have always been completely fascinated with the paranormal. I read pretty much anything I could get my hands on growing up. I remember being in the children's library at my school perusing the limited section that they had on paranormal in the non fiction section while the rest of my friends were looking for books like the Babysitter's Club or Sweet Valley High. Don't get me wrong, I did a ton of reading and I spent my time with those as well. :)) I was always called back to the Paranormal though.
Growing up in Massachusetts I was introduced to the stories of the Witches in Salem very early on. It's hard to explain the pull I had to that story... it called me. So I began reading everything I could on Witches. I was really young at this point, definitely no more than 10. One of the books mentioned Laurie Cabot, Salem's witch and I was beyond excited. You must understand that back then the type of information that we have now was definitely not available. :))) There are so many books out there now. Back then you really had to dig to find anything so when I stumbled across her name I couldn't get a pen and paper out fast enough to write to her. I told her who I was and explained the visions that I had and how there really wasn't anyone around me who understood what I was seeing. I was really hoping that she could shed some light on what was happening for me. For as many books I read about ghosts and the paranormal, none of them went into what was going on with me.
Weeks went by and I did whatever I did as a little girl. :)))) Then one day I got a letter in the mail. It was from Laurie Cabot! :)))) She wrote back to me :)))) She told me that what I was experiencing was normal, nothing to worry about. She said that she couldn't work with me until I was 18 though and to come back and talk to her then.
I have been to Salem and been to her shops and I've done a lot of work with the material that she puts out there and she is just amazing to me still. One day I would love to meet her in person. :)))))
I think it's funny though that 30 years ago I wrote to a woman that I still look up to today. I'm not sure how normal it is for 10 year olds to be so drawn to witches or the paranormal lol :))))
I was never afraid of it though? Regardless of what everyone around me said. It's like I had an understanding of it from early on and understood the connections to the Earth. If I knew then what I know now I would have paid a lot more attention to my thoughts growing up! lol :))))
Have a magickal day!
Much Love and Many Blessings,
