My name’s Virginia, and for most of my life, I was a dogmatic atheist. Then, in 2014, a traumatic event opened me to psychic experiences. Since then, I’ve uncovered memory after memory - things from my childhood and things from before - that have helped me understand that I Always Had This Magic. But society made me think it wasn’t real - it couldn’t possibly be real - so I hid it away.
I rejected my magic, which is another way of saying: I rejected myself.
By the time I was in college, my body started rejecting me too. I was diagnosed with two autoimmune disorders and epilepsy. I spent years seeing doctors with zero improvement. Then, I started practicing yoga and meditation and reading eastern philosophy. Through years of study and practice, I grew to understand my abilities, and all of my symptoms disappeared.
Once my body was healthy, my abilities bloomed. What started as seeing synchronicities and signs and having the occasional vision that came true turned into me being a full blown psychic channel.
What seems impossible to most soon became part of my daily experience. In addition to the commonly experienced five senses, I process information through visions, physical sensations, subtle sound, direct knowing, and seemingly superhuman (except - points to self - still a human) pattern recognition.
My brain processes patterns and information like it’s running on super speed. This helps me see and understand how events are connected through time and space. I experience the world as a massive web of interconnectivity - a beautifully woven web - that I see all the time.
From 2016-2019, I worked one-on-one with clients, helping them understand and strengthen their intuition, and from 2017-2018, I wrote a weekly and monthly column for Horoscope.com. I’ve also written for Well+Good and have been featured in multiple podcasts and articles.
Before my spiritual awakening, I studied human evolution and philosophy at Vassar College, worked with over 100 species of animals, and conducted research with one of the world’s foremost primatologists. Since then, my magical experiences have only strengthened my love for science. I propose that magic is not supernatural, but instead, it is completely natural.
While I’m a trained scientist, writer, astrologer, Reiki Master, and yoga instructor, at the end of the day, my spiritual practice has nothing to do with what others have taught me and everything to do with the direct guidance moving through me. And this is what I encourage you to do too: Connect with your own channel. Trust it. Don’t follow. Lead.
