A Call to Duty: Destiny of a sensitive teacher

I just want to help people.

For too long people of an ostracized faith, or people of folk religions and rituals, feel isolated, lost, and in need of support and guidance.

I’m so happy you have a community. I’m seeing more and more access to groups and communities for those who believe in more than one deity, or for those who want to thank their land, can meet and connect. But within every community there needs to be teachers.

But I want to teach. I want to help guide and counsel. I want that feeling of loneliness for the sensitives and those faithful to the mystical land to flow away. I’ve always been a teacher of the performing arts, and the culture that goes with it. What I’ve collected, and kept to myself, is the culture and arts that stem from dancing and singing. The old faith. People call this the ‘occult,’ but I don’t believe in the devil, personally. I do believe in evil, and I believe in good. I believe in balance. And I believe in giving to my community by reminding them of their humanity. This includes faith.

My grandmother taught me the old faith, quietly, for several years when my dad and stepmother dropped us off at her house when they both had to work. Her blend was with Christianity, which mien wasn’t. She still guides me today. Telling me that it’s ok to share our ways, to teach more people, to open up the doors of a beautiful world of our faith and to encourage others to believe and heal as well.

Along my path of signing and dancing, and acting, I’ve hidden the part of spirit that connected so deeply with me. The part where I just know about my students, what an audience needs in that moment, and the whispers of the dead backstage and the comfort of my own home. With the support of my family, I’m able to take off the costumes of being only a performer, and show my real skin to the world around me. Offering me a life where I can help people. And this life has been overwhelmingly welcoming.

There is no need to feel lost or without someone to help guide, anymore. No need to hide. We can be secret without being shamed or afraid. My job is to teach and counsel, reminding us of the culture, history, and paths we are all to build around us.

Just think of me as the schoolhouse teacher of the occult for all ages and levels, managing the education as best as I can for those who want it.

I currently teach at http://www.zinzeudo.com. I am able to teach to people all over the world, now, with this pandemic. This is a time to self-heal. To spiritual rediscover and actualize yourself. And to have access to spiritual teachers who are there to help you, not take advantage of the broken.

I’m currently teaching three regular classes with them, and I hope to have offerings for children and teens of the ‘old faith’ community as well. They may need it the most.

And with that, I ask for this in return. Some of us are different. We are sensitive in ways we can hardly explain. I wish I had had the help to understand the clair-sensitive world around me, but I was lost and alone in this discovery. Without stigma, I offer guidance for those in the way I wish I had.

We all want to be understood. We all need spiritual healing. We all need to be told “it’s going to be ok.”

Aly is still an accomplished performer, which is required by his beliefs for passing on history and culture so we connect to each other and the human condition. He uses his psychic abilities as a performing arts instructor to better his students’ education, and has finally decided to teach in the field of the supernatural. 15 years ago, Aly was the victim of a homicide attempt, which stripped the barrier between him and the spirit world, and Aly has communicated with those beyond ever since.
