Like I always say, we don't choose the multidimensional life, it chooses us.
For those of you who are new to my work - here's a little synopsis. I was a normal-ish person (highly empathic, but not knowing what that meant, and seeing/feeling the occasional ghost or spirit, but shoving that right on down into my subconscious where I didn't need to think about it) until my spiritual awakening when I was 20 years old, about to graduate on a fast track psychology degree. My intuition ramped up and my clair-senses turned on. To my then-agnostic/atheist mind, I thought I was going off the deep end. Surely these were hallucinations. I didn't believe in this stuff! Seeing things, hearing voices, and knowing facts I couldn't possibly know made me feel crazy. I was seriously worried about my sanity until... the hallucinations started coming true. This was a whole new level of crazy.
Through synchronicity (and divine providence,) I found support during this time. A Reiki teacher who trained me in the healing arts and witchy friends who had been walking the paths of magic and deeper awareness longer than me ushered me into a world that was niched, but not as uncommon as you may think.
Now, almost 20 years later, I've dedicated my life to modern shamanism - not the kind that needs drugs to travel, but the kind that trains the mind to intercede in the unseen realms to affect the material world.
This blog is meant to be a window into that.
I realize I'm lucky in that there were enough highly sensitive folks in my lineage that my parents recognized my gifts for what they were ("oh, you're just like your Great Aunt Emma, she had that too" was the vibe) rather than sticking me into an institution or drugging me into a stupor.
Many don't have that blessing and if you're reading this from a place that has taught you to fear your sensory gifts, I'm sorry and I hope this can provide you a candle to hold in that confusing space.
More likely, however, you just keep what you see to yourself. Or, like I once did, if you don't understand it, you shove it down where you don't have to think about it and try to forget as soon as possible (especially if what you saw was strange or scary.)
As for me, I love this shit. Diving into the unseen realms (with the skills and tools I hold from decades of study, not just willy nilly) is one of my favorite things to do. So let's get into it together.
I'd love to start this journey with you by saying that seeing things with your intuition (or your "third eye") isn't like seeing things with your normal sight. You don't hallucinate it. It's more like you see a memory. You can clearly discern details, sensory information, even emotional vibes, but you don't cloud the here-and-now physical space with what your finer senses are telling you. That's the difference between people who lose it and people who use their gifts to help themselves and others.
So, practice. Meditate. Call in protection. And keep a journal of what your intuition tells you so that over time, you can know what information comes through for you clearly, and what comes through skewed or sideways. Like anything, intuitive awareness and shamanic journeying gets better with practice. Learn to use your tools. Flex your gifts. The world of humans needs it. Look around - don't you see that there's less soul than there should be? It's somewhere, likely chained up, maybe being used for purposes other than those we would prefer. So wake up and shape up, all of us who have hands to maneuver in these unseen worlds. Let's see what we can do.

Love you guys, thanks for reading. Take a deep breath and have a fantastic day.

This blog is meant for geeking out and digging in to the unseen, but very important parts of life that are intense for those of us who see them, and invisible for others. As I always say, we don't choose the multidimensional life - it chooses us. But I wouldn't want it any other way.
