I'm a 51-year old male that has always had clues there was something different about himself.
- - Animals loving me (my local shelter calls me "The Cat Whisperer")
- Babies immediately love me
- I can sense someone's intentions/character almost immediately
- I've led what some would call a "charmed" life, having things "just happen" to my advantage at times
- People have always told me I had a comforting effect on them
This led me to try to actively raise and channel energy to help heal her shoulder, which has led to more advanced magic for me and a very strong connection/relationship with Gaia for her (and HOOOO, BOY, is THAT a story!).
The result of channeling healing energy into her shoulder several times each day? Three weeks after surgery, her physical therapist says she is extremely ahead of schedule; at this point, he says she should have about 50% range of motion as he manipulates her shoulder.
She had 100% as of Friday, a result he says shouldn't really be possible.
I've had visible, verifiable success with sigil magic since then, learned how to better raise, channel and control energy, and have learned some of the power of crystals.
Of course, I'm probably doing everything wrong and bringing about Armageddon, but it has been nothing short of amazing to me how instinctual this has been so far. (My apologies if the world ends not with a bang, but with Thoth appearing in the sky and saying "This guy is driving me crazy" before ending it all.)
This doesn't even cover the stranger things that have happened, but I'm focusing on trying to harness and control what I'm already dealing with, so I'll talk about those another time. For now, I official know enough to know that I don't know anything.
I look forward to getting to know everyone here, learn everything I can and I hope I can be of help to folks at some point.
Assuming I don't blow up the house with too much energy; that is a rush I've never experienced before.
