A woman opened up about how she discovered her inner witch after she had asked a tarot reader to teach her how to cast spells to solve her problems.
In an essay for Crowds, writer Annakeara Stinson told how she sought the help of Tarot Priestess Melinda Lee Holm after her recent move to Los Angeles, she felt a little lost while sleeping on her aunt's couch.
Not only did Stinson find an apartment to find herself shortly after her first meeting with Holm, but she also discovered that magic resonates with her in a way that makes her think she can be a witch herself.

Stinson explained that Holm used the word & # 39; witchcraft & # 39; not used to describe what she does because the term is associated with the legal prosecution of people who practiced magic and spiritual rituals.
Instead, Holm refers to her practice as magic with a & # 39; k & # 39; to distinguish it from a method of illusion.
& # 39; Magic (k) and spell-casting basically just work with the natural and spiritual world to make changes & # 39 ;, she told Bustle.
Stinson said she originally intended to ask Holm for spells to help her struggle with intimacy and earn more money, but she was also aggravated by trying to find her position in LA after seven years in the same apartment in New York City to have lived.

Holm started reading the session through a tarot and explained that she does not predict the future, but rather interprets the cards, which represent what is currently going on in a person's life.
The lectures helped her get a better picture of the spells and tools that would be best for Stinson.
& # 39; When she did the first spread, the cards showed me in an emotional place of newness, and what awaited me had a lot to do with doing homework and creating room for myself. I am, however, blocked, if not ruled, by negativity, doubt and mental chaos, & # 39; Stinson explained.
Holm continued to do so two more spreads for her, one focused on her apartment hunt and another on an interpersonal problem that bothers her.

After the session, the tarot priest gave her a seven-day spell to begin at the start of the full moon.
& # 39; She told me that every day, to place a small stone in front of a tea candle, I light it and let it burn all by myself, & # 39; Stinson recalled. & # 39; Then take a moment in meditation to say and trust that the flame burns away my doubts and internal barriers and fuels my growth. & # 39;
On the last day of the spell, she was told to bury the stone in the ground or throw it into an ocean or stream to give & # 39; the earth to transmute that energy & # 39 ;.
Stinson admitted that in the beginning she was not exactly a natural witch and felt insecure. One night the candle blew out accidentally when she brought it to the pool at her aunt's apartment. She also wondered if the altar she used was too messy.

It worked! Stinson, who was living with her aunt at the time, said she found an apartment shortly after meeting Holm and began to think that she could be & # 39; a witch & # 39;
Although she did not feel different at first, she soon noticed unexpected changes. She found an apartment shortly after her meeting with Holm and & # 39; began to feel more stable & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Things had happened in all the areas that we discussed, and as she said, in ways I didn't expect, & # 39; said Stinson. & # 39; While I thought the spell & # 39; working & # 39; would mean that I felt completely unblocked and free from my struggles, important developments were made instead. Quite fast. & # 39;
The personal issue she was dealing with, however, only got worse and she ended up at Holm again.
After their second session, Stinson said she told her aunt that Magick really resonated & # 39; with her, and she thinks she & # 39; maybe a witch & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Yes, I am a beginner here, my trips to magic have the feeling that I am creating a sense of freedom that I long for and feel called to & # 39 ;, she wrote. & # 39; I will stick with it and continue with it. & # 39;
