1. A skinwalker is a person with the ability to transform into any different type of animal at will.

2. They are most frequently seen as coyotes, wolves, foxes, eagles, owls or crows.

3. Some can also “steal” the faces of different people, and could appear as someone you know.

4. If you accidentally lock eyes with a skinwalker, they can “absorb” themselves into your body and take control of your actions.

5. Rare skinwalkers can also have the ability to enchant the powder of corpses and use the substance as a poison dust on victims.

6. The legend of the skinwalkers originates from the Navajo, a southwestern Native American tribe.

7. In the Navajo language, the word “skinwalker” is yee naagloshii and translates to “he who walks on all fours.”

8. Skinwalkers have only entered the public discourse relatively recently compared to other phenomenon. In 1996, a team of scientists ventured to a Utah ranch to investigate a series of bizarre phenomenon.

9. If their other powers weren’t enough, Skinwalkers are also said to be able to run incredibly long distances — some say over 200 miles in one evening.

10. Skinwalkers have a tendency to hang around graveyards, and can dig up graves at an impossibly fast speed.

11. While they can take many forms, many people who see them today describe them as “hollowed out” dog-like animals.

12. Skinwalkers are said to recruit more skinwalkers themselves. There is some dispute in how this happens, but some say that there is an official ceremony and that skinwakers only take their form with a gathering of people and specific chants.

13. With all of their advantages, it is said that you can kill a skinwalker if you call them by their true (human) name.

14. Skinwalkers are most commonly encountered near native reservations, though they have been seen all over the United States. Some people believe the “Rake” which is commonly encountered in the northeast is similar to a skinwalker. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather
