I think everyone is a natural at the arts some just do better than others at first, of course I likely do not understand the concepts behind the words, so take it for what you will.
As far as people telling you that you are powerful,sometimes people tell you what they think you want to hear other times they see something in you that is different. I do not think being powerful is a good or bad thing.I have been told that before, but it is more the way someone says it, then the fact it was said. If someone shows me something and i do it well the first time with little effort and they say well your just a little magickal power house arnt you and go on to something else, I am ok with it, but if they say it and look at me like there afraid of me and wont talk about what happened anymore, then I feel like I did something wrong and what ever I did was somehow bad even if I dont understand what I did wrong. I guess it is all in the way you want to look at it.
