Good evening everyone,
I stumbled upon this website a few years back when I was in the military. I'm sure some of ya'll can understand how boring a job may be at times. I
used ATS to pass the time and learn about some new topics. Anyway, today I decided to register due to some circumstances that popped up. My highest
area of interest is in the spiritual topics.
Why am I interested in the spiritual? My family story is an interesting one and the reason of my interest. Apparently, my mothers side of the family
consists mostly of Filipino shaman. The last practicing shaman in our line was my grandfather who passed away about 15 years ago. My mother told me
stories of how our family fought witches, protected villagers from harmful magics and malicious people. My grandfather predicted that one of my
mothers children will have a gift. Apparently that is my little brother (of 21 hah). He apparently can see spirits in his mind and can combat them.
According to him I am a "protector" and exude an aura that is kind of like a shield. There are two other children in the family but they don't have
As a result of this history my immediate family is very spiritual. We hide this history and these talents from the real world out of embarrassment
with the exception of my brother. He tends to flaunt it. Given the "relative" anonymity of the internet I feel I can communicate with the more open
minded folks here.
Thanks for providing a place to vent and share experiences!
