Ro, coming from a background of mystics, witches, seers, and the like it behooves us to keep in mind that many cultures will attempt to suppress any form of “extra” abilities or gifts because they simply don't understand. They cannot be blamed. Maybe some of us were in that same mentality at one time??? We have since grown. It is however paramount to know that none of us need to have fear.
The Goddess, or Great Mother, as we called her, is an incredible force for good in our lives. If we trust that She will guide us through the deepest water we will find the perfect teacher in Her. She will show us how to protect ourselves. She will show us how to heal, both ourselves and with permission, others. I owe Her my life and would have never survived without Her gentle hand.
Blessings Ro and Blessed Be
