So I'm a teenage girl, and I very much believe I'm an empath and a clairovoyant. I live with my mother and we both "feel" these things. I believe that we may have inherited our "sight" through our Cherokee ancestry; I have faith in the talent of my ancestral mothers.
I've been seeing things since I was little, starting with monsters in the closet, which my mom disregarded until she really started to believe that I was seeing this entire other plane that she sees. I remember very clearly seeing shadows, hearing voices, and once even seeing a hanged man in my closet.
I had a dream last night that really frightened me. For a while I've been seeing the same face, EVERYWHERE. The dream consisted of myself, meeting a young man about my age around the neighborhood. I invited him to my home after a long, pleasant conversation. We went to my house, and he immediately recoiled upon entering. I asked him if he was alright, and he said he was fine, and to not worry about it. I was giving him a tour around the house, and he immediately stopped in his tracks in the kitchen. I asked what was wrong again, and he said, "You've been marked." I asked where, and by what, and he pointed to a spot in the dining room where this one face I've been seeing appeared. "That. They're everywhere in your house. You're cursed by her." I asked by who, and he just looked at me knowing I knew exactly who he was talking about.
I'm extremely concerned now. I've been feeling random bursts of negative emotion, but I'm clinically anxious and depressed. Everything I do nowadays turns out badly or ends up disappointing my reasonable quality standards, but then I'm also under stress. (being in high school and all...) Is it a coincidence that I see the exact same face around every corner, and that I'm experiencing the textbook symptoms of a curse? I don't feel scared, per say, but it seems like this "thing" (which I don't think is human, in any sense) is both watching over me, and warning me or dragging me down. She even has different forms, but the same face. It's almost a common idea of the maiden, the woman, and the crone. The maiden always has more human dimensions and looks younger. The woman has wings, and looks a little more mature, at the peak of her (I daresay extraordinary) beauty. Finally, her most fearsome form is that of the "crone". She resembles the woman in the majority of the body, with wings as well (which, in both figures, are black), but is covered in blood which is red (or that of other people) and black (her own). She has what I'd probably call claws, and the teeth of a canine creature. But in all forms, she has pale white skin, either dark --and almost bottomless-looking-- eyes, or beady yellow-green ones in the "crone" form, and then rich, long, black hair. (Anyone know her? 'Cuz I don't) What should I do? She's everywhere and I don't know why. Is she a "she" or is she an "it"? I honestly don't even think she was ever "alive". Is she okay to stay or should I be concerned? If so, what are my options? Help!
(PS I'm not a Christian [though I've tried it out]. I observe a Neo-Grecian worship to the goddess Artemis; I don't really do magick but I perform worship ceremonies every full moon. Please don't bother if you're going to tell me to accept Jesus.)
