I have always had an interest in the Metaphysical. As a child I constantly questioned the world around me, seeking answers that made sense to me. I considered my “Big Book of Fairy Tales” to be my first textbook on the subject of the Metaphysical and Supernatural. As a child I would pour over the detailed and intricate pictures, always delighting in finding the hidden fairies and other woodland folks within its pages. This early fascination provided me with a sense of there being something more in the world around me.
I continued to experience the supernatural into my early teens. I would often wake up at night to find Energy Beings in my room standing by my bed as if waiting for me to do something. At the age of 16 and not sure how to deal with these visitations, I shut myself off from those experiences. I continued my personal studies in Metaphysics however, reading every book I could and awakening myself to new experiences.
In university I earned my BA in Women’s Studies and Social Work while becoming very involved in Goddess Culture and Wicca. I led a group of women in monthly moon ceremonies and became very active in the Goddess community in Halifax. I studied Astral Projection, Dream Work, Runes Stones, Tarot and Past Lives and continued my voracious reading of anything Metaphysical. During my first year of university I discovered and studied The Seth Material by Jane Roberts, which resonated deeply with my own thoughts on the Universe, Space and Continuous Time.
Over the next 15 years I moved away from actively participating in the metaphysical community. A move to the West Coast brought me closer to my family roots and while I continued to study Metaphysics I entered a private phase of my studies.
Career, marriage, children and home ownership occupied much of my time and thoughts over the subsequent years. A seeming chance visit to a local bookstore in the fall of 2006 found me looking over books in the Metaphysical section. One book in particular literally fell off the shelf and into my hands. It was “Healing With The Fairies” by Dr Doreen Virtue. As if the floodgates of memory had burst open I experienced a rush of recognition. I didn’t put the book down until I had read it through.
