Hi, my name is Bob. I'm a Taoist who was raised in the Catholic ways. I have lived my whole life in St. Louis, MO. I'm fairly new to magic as a practicioner, actually I haven't ever performed any spells or rituals. However, family has a history in magic. My father and I both are clairvoyant. The reason I believe this is because throughout my life, I've had dreams which later became reality. It isn't all of my dreams and they aren't always 100% accurate, but they happen. The visions usually differ when I realize that I'm having a dream, someone in the dream will confirm that I'm asleep then I wake up. My father is also able to see Auras, although he'll never admit it.
My father hates his magic, his visions make him paranoid and he has focused so much on the negative, he only sees negative or dying Auras. He once told me that he practiced Christian black magic and increased his powers in a ritual where he renounced God. Shortly afterwards he stopped practicing.
The reason I am posting on here is that I was hoping that there was someone who could help me expand and control my visions without the need for "dark rituals", and hopefully help me in the other practices of magic. I know that I'll have to do a lot of research and study, but I don't know where to start and I figured that I should ask those more knowledgable than me for advice.
Thanks for reading this post and I hope someone can help out.
