    I am a psychic and this is my letter to those who don't believe in the magic

    To those who don’t believe in the magic,

    For a long time, I didn’t believe in the magic either.

    Instead, I was a Debbie Downer – depressed all the time. I didn’t trust anybody, including myself. I had low self-esteem. From the very beginning to this day, challenges and obstacles have overwhelmed my life.

    My father abandoned me when I was one year old. Later on, my mother committed suicide. In my teens, I was depressed and suicidal. While my first child was healthy, my daughter was born with a rare disease and needs full-time care, and my youngest son is autistic. After my youngest was born, I had heart failure.

    For a long time, I thought God must hate me.

    When my son was diagnosed with autism, I went to a dark place, and it was as if I could no longer be present in my life or my family’s lives. Again, I started to think about checking out. That’s when I began to meditate. Then, shortly after, a friend introduced me to Reiki.

    I thought it was just a massage, but I was wrong. Reiki is a Japanese alternative medicine that creates healing through energy in the body. That one session was the start of a beautiful journey. During the session, I relived the difficult moments in my life, and I watched the energy move throughout my body. In that session, I realized everything I had faced, someone else also endured. I wasn’t alone, and God didn’t hate me. But instead, my experiences would give me the insight and compassion to help people.

    And my ability to do so was always there.

    Since I was a little girl, I would have premonitions. Two days before I lost my mother, I dreamt of her harming herself. Premonitions like that happened repeatedly, but the people around me told me I was playing with the devil. So, I stopped talking about it.

    After Reiki, I began to feel aligned with my magic. Nothing was blocking me anymore, and I felt happy for the first time in a long time. The feelings were so overwhelming that I decided instead of running away from the magic, it was time to embrace it.

    I started taking Reiki classes, further healing myself and ultimately getting off my heart medicine. Reiki helped me get my power back and start making decisions that were right for me.

    Now, I am Reiki Master, a certified hypnotherapist, and I perform psychic readings. Through magic, I can genuinely help people. One day I was live on my Facebook, and I felt like a woman watching was about to harm herself. I told her she needed to pull herself back. A couple of days later, she told me she was about to hurt herself, and I told her exactly what she needed to hear as if a greater power was speaking through me.

    Through the magic, my pain found its purpose. My life experiences have allowed me to recognize other people’s wide range of emotions since I have experienced so many of them. And helping other people has helped me.

    Today, my kids are doing better. My daughter is out of the hospital, and while she struggles, she is happy. And a while back, I made a wish on a dandelion that my youngest son would speak, and two days later, he started talking. Physically, I am healthy, and mentally I feel strong, confident, and content with my life. When you believe in magic, you never know how the universe will deliver your wishes. Magic has given me a sense of peace and calmness in my still, very chaotic life.

    And for those of you that still don’t believe in magic.

    The magic is everywhere. It’s up to you to find it. It is the birds, the sky, the earth, the sun, and the rainbows. It is in other people – the people who say something kind to you or treat you nicely. It is all over the place, but to see it or believe in it, you must understand what it is. The magic lies in all the beauty that surrounds us.

    And to experience it each day, you need to give yourself a moment to take it all in.

    With love, faith and a bit of magic,

    Dendra (as told to Lauren Brill)

    • @dsenlightenededits @amazz94 @oneturbobenz @lindseylamar @jim-c @lostone89 @jerricaconley @qcurtis @rkartikalestari @okiwa002 @brilee258. Hey Guys! I thought you might enjoy Dendra’s story. I found it super interesting. Would love to hear your reaction. Has anyone else ever had a psychic moment. I have actually had a few. Just a few months ago, I had a dream about a minor car accident. Later that day, at about 1pm, my Uber backed up into a mailbox. I have had a few other strange situations like that. Anyone else?

      With love,

      • Lauren,

        I had one just last year. While driving through Streetsboro heading for Cleveland. The seatbelt buckle in my Dad’s car had a way of slapping against the door post when you weren’t wearing it. It was driving me crazy with the sound it was making. I felt uneasy about why it bothered me so much that day when it had never bothered me before. I decided to finally put my seatbelt on to stop it from making the noise. Half an hour later that seatbelt most likely saved my life. The majority of the damage sustained to my Father’s car in the accident was to my side of the vehicle as it hit the bridge first. Had I not been wearing it, I would have suffered much more severe injuries or possibly I would have been thrown from the vehicle and then hit by a car on the highway. That uneasy feeling saved me from being injured more than I was.

    • Dendra,

      Your words here hit me very hard. I personally know the struggle of being told you have heart failure. While the methods of our recovery differed I am so very glad you have recovered and sharing your story with us here. My brother married a woman who has an autistic son from a previous relationship. I know the challenges that he faces but I elevated my understanding of autism to support him and my Brother and his Wife.

      Recently I have been exploring methods to help cope with some of the stressors in my own life. I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis. I will be looking into exploring Reiki based on what you’ve shared here today.

      Thank you for sharing your story,

    • Hi,

      This topic you wrote was super interesting read for me. I currently work as a registered nurse and recall briefly learning about Reiki as an example of “CAM” (complementary and alternative medicine). I strongly believe in the use of both CAM and Western medications in aiding the health of a patient. People underestimate certain things way too often.

      I have never had any of the dreams or experiences you described. I’m not sure how “on topic” this is in regards to magic, but I do believe every bad thing happens in sets of three. I have always found that as soon as one major negative happens, there are two more major negative events to follow. It could be an odd coincidence, but the amount of times the “three event” occurs in my life makes me doubt that it’s a coincidence.

      One last thing that is more “mysterious” than magical, in a sense, is a full moon. I swear that something is definitely up with the moon and I will always stand by that belief. At my prior job I worked with residents who had severe dementia. On the day of a full moon, the resident’s behaviors drastically changed from their usual baseline. Residents were more aggressive, anxious, and hostile during these days. The staff also felt off. All my coworkers knew that a full moon meant a strange shift. The next day the shift went back to normal. It was insane.

      Walking into work on a full moon, especially at night, felt so stale and almost foreboding. I kind of miss it in a way because it was spooky and fun at my old job. I don’t know how else to explain it. In the parking lot you could see a huge circle hanging in the sky. I always stopped before entering the building to take a picture of it. I still do this going to my current job, but the feeling of apprehension is not as strong. This is most likely because I am in a bigger facility with alert and oriented patients, and staff is present and around me. Still, the full moon night shifts creep me out and always will.

      One of my favorite pictures I have was of the 2020 Halloween full moon, or whatever they like to call it. The night before, when the sun was setting, my boyfriend and I had to get gas. I snapped a picture of the almost full moon, which created an ominous feeling inside of me. Looking back at that picture I still vividly remember how I felt. In a weird sense, the idea of the full moon and its strange powers it appears to have (in my opinion) is equally as comforting as it is haunting.

      Do you think about anything involving the moon? I know it definitely affects my own feelings and behaviors. I strongly assume this is where the idea of werewolves stemmed from, but what do I know – they might be real too!

      I liked how you ended your story a lot too – by the way.

    • Hi,

      I found this letter by chance, and I have to say I’m glad I did. In the African-American community we are often taught to stay away from spirituality and magic as it is considered ” demonic”. I never understood why because so many people have found peace through meditation, reiki, crystals, readings, etc. It was nice to see that a Woman of color didn’t allow the stigma to turn her away from her calling, and what ultimately lead to her ow healing.
