Hiding in My Spiritual Closet was a Huge Block

When I Was Young


I was very gifted as a young child in seeing spirit, this is not unusual I should add.  Most children up to the age of around 7 do.  The invisible friends they talk about are often their Angels and Guides.  My experiences became quite intense and fear closed it down for me as I didn’t know what to do with it and had no support with it.  Again very common, as the adults around us are not experiencing what the children will.  So I hid in my spiritual closet till much later in life.

As I got older I had a deep fascination in spiritual matters.  My nana shared bits with me about palm reading, tea leaf reading but it always felt like there was so much out there I didn’t know where to start.  I wanted to know it all and wanted to know it now.

A strong spiritual connection is built upon trust.  I have long known that but I was not confident back then to be loud and proud about my gifts and abilities.

I used to do readings in secret, and occasionally would read a palm if someone would buy me a drink in the pub as a bit of fun.  I never took it seriously because I was more worried what other would think.  My connection back then was not strong enough as know I no longer care what others think.


People Sought Me Out For Guidance


It was strange how people gravitated to me for guidance.  It happened in random places: at a bus stop waiting to go to college, sat in a café, friends of friends, answers came and flowed through me but back then I didn’t know where they came from.

I knew things were going to happen for other people more than myself. I could sense if people were good or not and people seem to know I could do that and ask me my opinion on their new relationship.

One of my jobs in my younger days was doing beauty therapy and in those situations, people really opened up and so much guidance flowed through.  I often felt wiser than my years and it was often commented on.

“What would you do Amanda?” was a common thing I heard.

I had no idea back then what I was about and who I really was.  I had not got labels or tags to give what I could do, but I knew I could sense energy.  As soon as I went into a room, I could feel it.

It was draining but I didn’t know what to do back then.  Spiritual hygiene wasn’t part of my world then.  When my development when into fast-track mode, this was the first thing that was taught to me.  We are often in such a rush to open up and I was too as it was so exciting but that leaves us vulnerable if we can’t close down so we can control our journey.

Gathering all these bits of me all back together has been a life of discovery that I adore and when I found my life’s purpose, I felt complete again.

Is your biological clock ticking?

Women have 2 biological clocks One of the things I have realised is, as women, we can have two biological clocks. The first starts ticking when we feel the pull to have children in our 20/30’s. The second happens much later in life when the family has grown up and we...
