I was born 'sensitive'; I saw and communicated with spirits (as far as I could tell), had 'prophetic' dreams and hallucinations of demonic beings and hell realms (I had a very rough and emotionally disturbed upbringing). I was raised Scientologist on one side of my family and Buddhist on the other and was always taught to follow my intuition and study and learn as much as I could (Despite what the majority of non- and anti-Scientologists think, the original 'Tech', or manuscripts and practices, written by the founder are about discovering your own truth and taking nothing written or said on faith. It is based on Eastern Wisdom, Western Mystery Traditions, psychoanalysis, and putting in the work to become more able and in control of ones own life). My father was also a Pranic Healer, Karate instructor, and qigong practitioner which influenced me heavily.
I strayed away from Scientology and Buddhism and found Satanism when I was 13 (silly I know, but true), which opened up my mind and heart to ceremonial magic and belief in ones own power over a master or deity. From there it was books and books, spells and spells, conjurations and conjurations as I was growing up from everything from Simon's Necronomicon to Scott Cunningham's Wicca: Guide for the Solitary Practitioner. The last several years I have mostly focused on energy modalities, consciousness explorations, Internal Boxing, qigong, and Chaos Magic, with a heavy interest, but impractical experience, with transhumanism.
