am Native American, Hatched on Samhain, 1953, with what the doctor said was a birth veil or caul, from research I found out that this is a divinity Caul of a Mystic, King Zhoser from Egypt had this Caul when he was born, this was not a normal part of the birthing process and a veil was over my whole body like a caccon. I am 56 years young. I was borned in Broken Arrow, Ok, given up by my real parents because of their superstitions. I hail from Iowa and I have raised my two daughters by my self (now 28 and 26) by my self without anyones help, plus went to college..

All my life, since I can remember, I seemed to sense something more then what I was being told or even seen on a daily basis, and I noticed from a very young age that I was somehow different from other kids or people. I was extremely intuitive, even from a very young age, and I did NOT want to be different, always trying to fit in. I was always looking and searching for more to life, always looking up to the sky and saying, "there has got to be more out there then I can see". I never lost sight of this as my search for knowledge and understanding continued.
Although, I have received traditional religion as a young one, something in me I knew that I was different; there was some sence of connection or gratitude, that demanded expression. I would go down to the Gypsy Camp with my nanny, and listen and learn all that I could and was given the name Raven at the age of 13. I am still learning more each and every day. Wise Craft is a part of my life and is my way and has been my way, way before it started making any sence. At the age of 18, I encountered a group of Witches and their religion. I relized that they were doing things with their Adulthood I was doing them instinctively as a child. When others found out back then they labled me as evil, oh well; I was told that as I was growing up, and sometimes even now. It was because I acted different than the other children. Some just did not understand my Mystical relationship with everything, and as I grew to where I am at now.
To be a Romanian Gypsy Witch to me means I help heal Mother Earth and all those inhabiting Her home, and try to bring them back in communication with Her. The disciplines of the Romanian Gypsy Witch to me are many, I feel the most important one is The Tenets, I Listen, Watch, Learn, Heal and most of all Teach those who want to learn. I have made my vows to the God and Goddess. This is who I Am and proud.
