Born into an aristocratic Russian-German family in Yekaterinoslav, Blavatsky traveled widely around the Russian Empire as a child. Largely self-educated, she developed an interest in Western esotericism during her teenage years. According to her later claims, in 1849 she embarked on a series of world travels, visiting Europe, the Americas, and India. She alleged that during this period she encountered a group of spiritual adepts, the “Masters of the Ancient Wisdom“, who sent her to Shigatse, Tibet, where they trained her to develop her own psychic powers. Both contemporary critics and later biographers have argued that some or all of these foreign visits were fictitious, and that she spent this period in Europe. By the early 1870s, Blavatsky was involved in the Spiritualist movement; although defending the genuine existence of Spiritualist phenomena, she argued against the mainstream Spiritualist idea that the entities contacted were the spirits of the dead.

“Psychic Awakenings: Communicating with Higher Realms
As a child, Jenny Schlitz was taken to the edge of the forest with her grandfather who showed her how to open a portal to the faery realm. Later, when her grandfather passed, she shut down her gifts and didn’t return to them until later in life when she began seeing Earth-bound spirits. She has now learned how to be a bridge between the realms and assist humanity in the ascension process.”
