I’ve been flirting with witchcraft and spirituality for years now. I think even as a child, I was pretty intuitive, but for some reason, I was always very afraid of reaching out and connecting with anything. I have always spent much time introspecting, and I consider myself reasonably self-aware. The last several years have been a struggle and an attempt to escape my own reality, to escape my self, but I feel like lessons have been learned and things are starting to realign. Or perhaps just a willingness and/or awareness of a change that I know is possible.
Sorry, I’ve already gotten ahead of myself. My name is Hatch! It gets harder to introduce myself the more I think about it, but I am almost 30, living in Oklahoma, and I use he/they pronouns. I was living in Oregon/Washington up until recently, though I’m originally from around these parts.
I feel a lot. I’ve always thought that there were just too many coincidences in my life for them to be coincidences. I pushed a lot of that intuition away through drugs and alcohol, but in the last few months, I’ve really been trying to reconnect with that energy. I’m excited to learn more and engage with like-minded people, explore, and get to know myself.
My thoughts are always a mess, so I’m not sure that’s a very organized introduction, but it’s nice to be here all the same.
Welcome Hatch! I’m Ostara from Texas. If you have any questions, just ask and someone will know the answer, or point you in the right direction. My thoughts are usually a mess too. Lol!

For the record, your introduction is fine. Don’t obsess too much about your wording, we’ll figure it out. A lot of my posts are rather like the next line first puzzles.
Your experiences sound a lot like many of ours. You are not alone.
Please ask anything about anything you’re wondering if struggling with.
You are part of a loving and non-judgmental family, make yourself at home
