I didn't suddenly discover I was a witch. It was something I was drawn to from an early age. I found it fascinating. I had no idea someone could be a witch in this day and age. I found out that all I had to do was choose that pathway and it would be mine.
'Powers' is just another word for energy work. It's about having a clear intention of what outcome you want and then knowing with no doubt whatsoever that it will happen, even if it doesn't happen the way you expect it. And yes, it doesn't always work, but if you keep an open mind and be aware of all the opportunities, you might be surprised when you least expect it.
