As a young girl I always knew that I was "different".
A quiet child, drawn to books, poetry, museums and the arts, I never seemed to fit
anywhere. Born to a manic-depressive alcoholic mother and an alcoholic father, I learned
very early to care for those that could not care for themselves. I was an adult, walking
about in child-sized shoes. I felt my mothers pain, as she slipped deeper into her dark
world and felt my own later, when my father succumbed to the illnesses brought about by
his disease. I felt my younger sister's anguish as she was taken from our home. I was on
my own by the age of 14, out there in a world that never felt welcoming to me.
|But during those teenage years, my own island, my own
piece of the universe, within, is what kept me growing day by day. Stronger in spirit,
stronger in will and determination, stronger yet in heart and compassion. I felt deeply
for those I met in the streets, I felt deeply for those that came to me with questions.
And come to me they did. Always. The students at high school, the friends I had and often,
a friend of a friend. The aches and pains were benign then really, normal teenage
troubles. Broken hearts, fear of parents, bad grades. But always I knew what to say, what
to give them to ease their worries and help them move on.
At first, I thought it was a curse. Always people turning to me for answers and guidance,
when no one was there to hear my own questions. It frightened me often, that feeling of
"knowing", the emotions that I picked up from others, the instinctive knowledge
of their deepest hurts, confusions and yes, joys.
I am in my thirties now, with three beautiful children of my own and I have learned so
very much on the path that led me here today. I am aware of my empathic abilities and am
no longer frightened of them. Hardships come and go, broken hearts mend over time and with
each agony, with each soul searing pain, comes a new revelation.
I now share my "gift" with those that come to me for answers, willingly and
without reservations. Through the years I have studied the art of tarot, learned to be
still through meditation and truly listen to that which is in me. I learned about the
stars and their indisputable influences on our lives. I don't think that I'm the
"chosen" one, nor do I believe that I have all the answers to all the questions
ever posed. But to the best of my ability I will share myself and guide you along your own
