About Me

 

Hello and welcome!

I am a Gray Witch that comes from a strong generational line of witches. Much of what I know and the rituals I use were handed down to me by my maternal grandmother, my paternal grandfather, studying in libraries (before the internet even existed), and of course, using my own psychic abilities.

I am not a Wiccan, so I don’t subscribe to the Wiccan Rede. However, if you don’t know what that is, it’s quite easy to Google and find out. I do though have many Wiccan friends that I deeply adore, so my words here are not meant to insult the Wiccan Community in any way – I’m just saying what I am and am not.

Many people ask me why I always make it a point to introduce myself as a non-Wiccan. Well, the fact is, most of the information on the internet that has anything to do with learning about witchcraft is heavily swayed towards the Wiccan religion, so when someone comes to me for help and starts talking about Karma, No Harm Done, and other such beliefs within the Wiccan community, I always have to interrupt them and say, “I’m not Wiccan” which leads to me having to explain to them that even though all Wiccans are witches, not all witches are Wiccans. And believe me, it takes a lot of teaching them about what I am before I even get to hear what their problem is!

So then, what is a Gray Witch? I’ll give you my own interpretation of what a Gray Witch is – a witch that walks the balance between light and dark energies. There is a cute saying I saw online once that sort of sums it up. “A witch that cannot hex cannot heal.”  Now wait a second before you think I’m going around hexing people just because they looked at me the wrong way, or the grocery clerk because she double charged me for something, or the person that cut me off on the freeway – it’s not that at all.

At least not for me.

That saying has so much truth because you see, how could I possibly help someone banish a curse if I have no idea what a curse is or how it works? Or, how could I possibly help someone to banish negativity in their life if I don’t know what kind of negativity it is? There have been people that came to me who have smudged their home to the point of choking, bathed in healing-baths to the point of becoming a prune, and prayed until they were blue in the face – but the evil remained to torment them another day. So what do I do in these cases? To completely simplify it, I banish the dark energies and then help them to heal from the nightmare.

What kind of magick do I weave?

I weave elemental magick and primordial-draconic magick. Again to simplify things, I work with the elements (fire, water, earth, air & spirit) and Dragons.

Yes…dragons. Not Hollywood dragons – but primordial dragons.  And certainly not the kind you read about on the internet or in books. Since my working dragon-magick is an extremely complicated and complex subject to elucidate, I’ll not attempt it here.

Instead, I’ll move on to my abilities.

Since I was a very young child, I’ve always had the uncanny ability to see spirits and communicate with them. Looking back, I was extremely fortunate to be raised by my grandmother, who also could see and communicate with them. Little did I know back then that my grandmother’s house was a hotspot of activity. You see, at the time, there were no such sayings for what was happening around me, so frankly speaking, it was just part of the “norm” growing up; therefore, I never gave it a second thought when a spirit would visit her.

Later in life, I learned that my mother had no such ability and neither did anyone else in my family, but for some reason, this “gift” fell on me. Gift…I hate that term. So much so, I only use it here for the sake of writing this blog. So instead, I always use the term ability. Why? Simple, because to me, a gift is something you enjoy receiving, and never in my life have I ever truly enjoyed having these abilities.

What are these abilities?

I guess I could say that I’m a clairvoyant, claircognizant, clairaudient, clairsentient, and a fully conscious medium.

What all those titles mean is that I see things, know things, hear things, feel things and I don’t need to go into a trance to talk to spirits.

As for just calling myself a psychic or a medium – that wouldn’t work since – all mediums are psychic, but not all psychics are mediums.

Confused?

Okay, let me try to explain.

Psychics have what is referred to as extrasensory perception – the ability to perceive information that is not usually known to others, by using their 5 senses – sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch.

Mediums, on the other hand, have these abilities as well but they are also able to bridge the communication gap between the world of the living – this world – and the worlds of the dead.

Some of my other abilities are astral traveling to walk through someone’s past lives if I need to find out more information that could possibly help them. Not something I enjoy doing because of the many dangers involved, but I do it nonetheless if needed.

I guess I could call myself a psychic-medium, but to me, that sounds so ingloriously pompous (no offense to those that call themselves that).  So that’s why I prefer to just say I have abilities – life is much simpler that way without all the grandstanding.

I’m also a certified Master Tarot Card Reader and a member of the American Tarot Association (ATA) – of which I strongly adhere to their Code of Ethics.

Why I decided to make this blog.

For quite a few years, family, friends, and clients have been asking me to make a blog to share the stories of my dealings with the paranormal throughout my life and on subjects that I may have an opinion on. So here it is.

The stories you will find within this site are categorized, so the navigation should be easy enough to understand. Of course, the names and places have been changed – but the rest of the story itself will indeed be as it happened and how it unfolded. There will be stories of my dealings with spirits and entities – light, dark and neutral – and how I’ve either banished them, helped them move on, or in the end, left them alone because they wanted to remain where they were and since they weren’t harming anyone I didn’t feel the need to move them on. At some point, I will also be including stories of how having my abilities affected certain relationships along the way. And of course, I will be blogging my thoughts on certain paranormal issues and how I feel about them.

Another thing that might be of interest to me is that I have a little store on Etsy where I create and spell-weave handmade items to help those dealing with paranormal or personal issues. Or you can visit my online store (without all the ridiculous fees I’m charged) here Spirit Fyre located on BigCartel.com where I ship to all 50 states.

Right now, I’d like to take this time to thank all of my wonderful clients and customers around the world for their patronage, kind words, and wonderful reviews; you all mean so much to me.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy your visit here, and if you are so inclined make a small donation which will be greatly appreciated.
