Hello. Ive always been a skeptic of witchcraft and every other spiritual belief system, but throughout my life, since infancy, i have had a strange relationship with animals. From zoo animals reaching to touch me from inside of their enclosures, to unusual animals showing up wherever I am. Whenever I come home from college, and no other time from what my mom tells me, by the end of the evening a stray animal has wandered into my yard (pet dogs, cats, and even a pet rabbit). Temperamental(1)
animals seem to like me, and wild animals often let me touch them (or approach me). Even when I visited costa rica, three coati showed up on my patio and wildlife that our guide rarely saw seemed to pop up out of nowhere. I have always attributed it to my love of ecology, but it always seems to bother others, turning into jokes at work, home, and college that Im an “animal whisperer”. At this point, Im willing to look into anything that could explain my experiences. But I’m not even sure (2)
where to begin. Do you know of any sources or have any personal knowledge of anything related to this? I was told by my mom that my dad, who was born in jamaica, had a similar ‘affinity’ for animals and comes from a family with much folklore about Caribbean witchcraft, but I unfortunately dont have any way of connecting with my family there, and so I have no one else to ask. If you know of others I could ask, that would be helpful as well. Thank you - Mo (3)
i’m afraid i don’t know of anything either.
does anyone have resources/info on caribbean witchcraft?
