Anonymous from Unknown

I was sitting down the other night for dinner and my arm started to tingle and feel quite strange and Iook at my left arm and see a faded mark as if something has bitten me and in the past I have never been bitten before on my left arm so I know it's not a scar. I looked even more and saw two. Could this be from a spirit or does it mean anything?


Dear Anonymous,

If it was a spirit, I would suspect you would have felt the presense before, during, or after you noticed the bite mark(s). Has it happened again?

I used to be able to meditate and "see things." I have been so blocked for so long I do not know what to do to get it open again. About 18 years ago, I was studying Wicca and was quite open to things. I got quite sick and now I want it back but am at a loss. Please help me out. What can I do?


Dear Wendy,

By "see things" I am going to assume you are talking about visualization. If I'm wrong then please resubmit your question.

When we are meditating, we use more than just our "sight," we also use our sense of smell, taste, touch, and knowing. Most people can't close their eyes and see a red apple. Most people will be able to smell the red apple, taste the sweet tartness of the red apple, and some "know" the red apple is there. Don't be disheartened because you can't "see" the apple. Use your other senses to help you out.

Start off slowly... find a quick 3 to 5 minute meditation and practice doing it around the same time everyday. The more your body gets use to meditating, the easier it will become. Once you start feeling relaxed and at ease with meditation, your sense of "seeing" should kick back in.

Hope this helps!
