My name is Stephanie. I am 19 years old, and I think I was/am a crystal child. I know, I know, everyone thinks he or she is psychic and indigo and crystal these days, but here's a little background.
My grandmother practices "witchcraft" for lack of a better word. Her religion stems from her Cherokee roots, and also contains aspects of pantheism, spiritualism, and she takes part in various rituals.
When I was very, very young, my grandmother began making me a part of her rituals. She would chant, burn incense and herbs, perform blessings, and the like. I was never hurt, and I was never uncomfortable. But I did not understand her beliefs or what was happening to me.
I see spirits, auras, and can "feel" the emotions of everyone around me. I do not remember if these things started with my grandmother's prayers, or if they existed before. Quite frankly, I was so young that I do not remember a time when I did not experience these things. As a small child, I was so disturbed by the spirits I saw and the intense emotions I felt, that I was diagnosed with Selective Mutism at age 4.
I am very pale. I had white hair (now just very light blonde) as a child, and un-proportionally large blue eyes. I'm not sure if this is important. My grandmother used to tell me that I was destined. Special. She even went as far as to say that my aura is "crystalline," long before I understood the term.
I have grown a great deal spiritually. I have learned to deal with the things I see and feel, and I have strengthened my abilities. While my beliefs do not exactly mimick my grandmothers, we do share a great respect of energies, spirits, and empathy.
Here is the problem I am faced with:
As far as I have read, Crystal Children are limited to beings under the age of seven. I have always known that I was different. I fit the description (albeit broad) of a crystal child to a tee. Is it possible for Crystal Children to exceed age 7 (as I am 19)?
ANY AND ALL replies will be greatly appreciated. And any information anyone can provide.
