Hello all you lovely souls out there! My name is Lily White, yes that’s my real name I am from cape cod Massachusetts but I now live in Cambridge mass which is only about 25 minutes from Salen MA. I have felt connected to magic and nature before I even knew what I was doing. I’m related to Sarah Wildes who was hung in the Salem witch trials. I am an empath through and through, I adore animals. ADORE. I can feel their needs and can literally interact with an animal in ways most people cant. I recently started my own facebook group called Salem Soul Sisters and I really wanted to have a smaller group of people where we can learn from one another, support each other, post informational topics about learning spells, I’ve been creating my own rituals and it’s a real passion of mine. I love astrology, tarot the moon the sun and the stars:black_heart: I have a special gift of feeling energy, not in the way you would think… it’s like I can pick up on a negative wave length and feel its “nature” whether it’s going to turn into a positive or negative situation or if something bad is going to happen I can just feel it. I used to go to a special school because being around people gave me to much anxiety with all the different emotions I didn’t know how to control picking up other people’s shit lol! So my mom and I would drive about 2 hours every day to get to this school, and just an fyi I get car sick in the back seat so I never sat back there. Well were driving like normal and all the sudden this immense wave of just awfulness over me I got physically I’ll from it and started getting sick to my stomach, I told my mother something was wrong and I jumped in the backseat, she’s looking at me in the rearview mirror like I’m nuts for jumping in the back while she’s going 70 on the highway. So anyways about a minute or 2 goes by and then all of a sudden it felt like time stopped for me it wasn’t like you would expect it was more like a feeling of energy slowing up and moving differently than normal it wasn’t like freeze everything stopped like you’d think I cant really explain it right but I’m trying. So the energy slows up I look up and see what looks like rain pouring into the front seat window and I was just in awe of everything and so confused and then before I knew it everything went back to normal time and then I felt glass everywhere just pouring in the window, Now if anyone is from Massachusetts they will remember about 10 15 years ago a father and son where sniping out windows and tires on the highways. Well we pulled over, called the police and they came and found the bullet they measured me and my height and measured the trajectory of the bullet and if I hadn’t of moved 2 minutes earlier the bullet would have gone right into my temple. Channel 5 news came and interviewed us after it happened no one could believe what happened. That’s when I started to realize that I had a “gift” I always knew but that’s what confirmed it for me. I am working on my divination skills, rituals, spells, moon magic, studying astrology charts in depth, lucid dreaming is something that comes naturally so astral projection is something I’m working on too. I recently discovered my spirit animal, a beautiful tiger. At first I went into the mediation with a few ideas of what my spirit animal would be so when my tiger showed up I almost rejected her because I really didn’t think a tiger was for me but now it makes total sense! I’m a tigerlily:joy: I am also growing some beautiful cannabis and I have been making what I call cannabundles ™which is like sage but cannabis leaves sorry for rambling I just am so excited to be on this path with you all

Thank you so much I was not expecting such kind words from everyone I’m used to going on facebook in all the giant groups and getting missed because theres so many different posts and people that’s why I created my own soul coven and I am so excited to be here and add to my network and learn from all you guys what part of mass are you from? Love the mass magic
Wow that is really something it’s very frightening I’ve had more experiences fighting death than any “normal” person should but I feel like since the first time I died and have come back my gifts get stronger each time it’s strange but that’s a whole other conversation haha it sounds like we have a lot in common I’m so happy to be here i hope we can learn from each other I bet we have alot more in common than we think I love meeting fellow empaths it’s kind of fascinating I love talking to others because we can share things and not feel completely crazy when talking about everything. Cant wait to get to know you valerie
Hiya @SalemSoulSister! Welcome to the forum! It’s so great to have you here what an incredible story - I’m so glad your intuition and gifts saved you in that moment and your journey brought you here to us! I look forward to hearing more from you soon!
The forums here are nice and cozy- no worries about getting missed! I’m so happy you feel at home here, Lily
My family is based in Plymouth now! But I’ve lived in a few different spots in MA over the years and I know Westwood/Norwood, Scituate, Boston, Marlborough, and Northampton/Amherst pretty well
I know it’s a ways out from where you’re at, but if you’re familiar with the Worcester area at all- have you heard of Seed to Stem? It was my favorite witchy aesthetic shop when I lived out that way! Although of course, it can’t compare to the many wonderful witchy shops you’re blessed with, with Salem being so close by!
An amazing story which I’m also profoundly happy you and your mother weren’t harmed during the events. I would love to talk about being an empath and how you’ve come to manage your ability to pick up on other’s emotions as well as talk tarot and astrology
