My Gifts

I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was a child. I had, and still have problems sitting still, sometimes I interrupt people without meaning to, it's very hard for me to concentrate on one thing at a time (although I have found it easier to study if I have the TV on or the radio going), I get bored very easily, I get stressed very easily, and I worry over really insignificant things. However, I have many pluses to my ADHD as well.


I am Pagan and have been for about 7 years now. As a child I've had dreams that come true and I actually don't really have any dreams that aren't visions. I probably do dream but the only ones I remember are the visions. I am also an empath. I can feel other people's emotions and emotions in rooms. I've learned to work with energies from the earth to manipulate energies in my living space to make things a little easier on me when I really need to concentrate, especially since I am an English major in college and plan on teaching.

Thanks to the gift of empathy, I have been able to help many people when they need advice or a helping hand. So far my dream visions haven't really been things that I need to help people with, they seem to just tell me what's going to be happening in my life later on down the line. I'll dream about something happening and then a few months later, deja vu, I'm living what I dreamed.

I've had many friends tell me that they believe people with ADHD are not disabled or hindered but that we are given gifts and we are the next generation. They believe that people with ADHD are just a little ahead of their time and that this is the way most people will be in the future. I also have a friend that writes a Pagan blog mention a book she was reading that proposed that people with ADHD are demigods. The demigod part seems a little out there in my opinion but I do believe that ADHD is a gift and although it may hinder us sometimes, just like any gift of magic it must be handled in the correct way.
