Week three with this AMAZING Community!
I am trying to decide what to write about. What do I have to say that will interest anyone? Will something about me be the right subject? Well, yes, maybe, since this site is new, and you don't know me! And besides, I would like to give you a little history since I am new to this wonderful community that I have tapped into!
So first, I was raised in a Catholic environment. It was a fine environment. Very good people. Never had a bad experience with a nun or a priest! :) But it didn't suit me.
Later I tried other Christian groups. They didn't click for me either. Actually got kicked out of one church for questioning doctrine! Yeah, again, not for me.
Thought about Judaism, seriously, because I thought, why not go to the source! And, I had a lot of Jewish friends that I looked up to! But, I didn't really pursue the idea.
The whole time I was questioning beliefs, I always knew there was something. I could feel it in my very core. Sense it with the signs that would come my way. Too much coincidence, to be coincidence, ya know!
In between my journey into the traditional faiths, I studied metaphysics. And I loved it! I felt in touch with the Spirit that is life. I believed and still do, that our souls are truly connected though each other, and that Spirit or Holy Spirit is in us all!
Then I discovered metaphysics. Metaphysics was\is interesting to me. Soon after, I decided I was on the right track. Things were clicking for me for the first time in my life!
However, in my excitement to find answers, I lost touch with reality. I didn't care that it scared my mom. She was terribly scared that I was involved with things that would hurt me, I pooh poohed her. I didn't care what doors I was closing, because I was seeking the truth. And the more I sought answers, the more I insisted on sharing my thoughts and beliefs. I had an answer for everything and was trying so hard to share my understanding, so I could help others too! Spread the news!!!!
On the surface, that may sound enlightened. But it wasn't. Because I wasn't tolerant, understanding, considerate, insightful for anyone else's feelings or beliefs... It was all about me and my quest for "True Enlightenment". So I got hurt. And I hurt others. I won't go into a lot of details, but picture a smart, attractive woman, that think's she knows it all. Not paying attention to the people that love her, and not realizing that the world we live in, requires attention to the mundane. Requires an acceptance of the three dimensional hard surface which is, "life". Our classroom! And I failed!
So, I stopped. I returned to the church. I tried to force myself to believe. And I got on with my life. I became accepted, normal.
I successfully raised a beautiful daughter, on my own. Grew a great career in Information Technologies. Later met the man of my dreams, who is a large part of my Team Positive Energy. And I returned to my faith. My true faith. Which is this world is full of magic, and we have access to the magic. That the Holy Spirit is in us all and that divine intervention is everywhere! And thankfully, I am blessed to be in some really, really good company, which is the community that is you!
So that is a short bio of me.
Please feel free to comment and share a little of yourselves with me! I would love to get to know you!
Team Positive Energy!
