Religion’s kind of a tricky question for me, given my unique situation. I was raised in a Catholic home, but when I got older my faith in anything...it came and went, it’s not unusual. I had a relationship with God that most people have, I would assume: when I talked, He listened.

Now...seeing the things that I see, knowing what I do about what comes after, it makes me wonder. I know the Church doesn’t support pagan stuff, or the arcane...but I can’t help what I see, what I know to be true. When I first got this ability to see ghosts? I was uncomfortable with it, not to mention the numerous visits I found myself paying to new age and occult bookstores. It felt...wrong, somehow. Over time, though, it got easier...shed my upbringing, as it were.

I don’t believe in the afterlife, I *know* it’s real. Life doesn’t end when we die. But what I believe...I believe that curses and black magick? They can be just as real. I’ve seen it firsthand in a ghost that cursed her own child with her dying breath and haunted an entire family for generations, wiping every last one of them out.

But God and the Devil? All the things that make up religion? I don’t really know if I buy into it...the only thing I know for sure is that belief is a powerful tool...it *makes* things real, viable, tangible.

I think for now I’ll stick to what I can see. After all...I know it sounds corny, but I *do* see dead people.
