  2. throughout my life I’ve always have strangers come up to me telling me i have powers/special energy. That they think I’m a witch, then ask if i practice this. More recently my two sisters whom I’ve told of this finally saw it for their self. My two sisters are also getting these question asked more frequently.. I’m not sure what to think/. i want to speak to someone who has more knowledge in this field.

So I’m really glade to tell you all my secret so thankyou

  4. I feel like I’m somehow connected to the supernatural. When I was younger I dealt with a lot of paranormal things and now I can’t but I feel connected to them and want to find out more about myself and my family but I don’t really know who to ask so I came here…

  5. I think I may be a natural witch but I could be wrong.. (I’m looking for help to figure out what/who I am)

  6. Hey I just want to say that all powers you think you have from witchcraft is all demonic. I highly suggest you rebuke it all from your life and TURN AWAY from it all. Break all the generational curses too. It’s no good for anyone.
