I have been a “spiritual person” forever. My whole life I have been interested in the spiritual. My family was “spiritual” not necessarily religious and we from time to time attended church, but we also attended Vedanta, which is one of the 6 schools of Hindu philosophy, Transcendental Meditation classes, and various other classes and seminars. So, I grew up learning a wide range of spiritual beliefs and practices.
When I was about 18 or 19, I went to every church in my hometown talking to the heads of the churches about their beliefs and views. I thought I would find one that just “fit” my spiritual beliefs perfectly and sadly I never did. This didn’t stop me from attending church. I continued, throughout my life attending Churches, but the standard churches never seemed to fit me. I finally landed on Alternative churches such as Unity. Although I have never attended Unity, I have been to several churches for extended periods of time who functioned much like a Unity church.
I have a personal relationship with God and Jesus however I do all the things that “Christians” think is evil and forbidden. I read tarot, talk to spirit, study hypnosis, study astrology, do yoga, meditate, use ancient methods of healing and clearing and I love rock and crystals. You could say I am an eclectic spiritualist. I love things that bring me closer to God, angels, and my guides! I know I am unusual, and I don’t care what anyone thinks of my chosen spiritual path. It is my own path, and I don’t need anyone to agree with me or understand my path. I am also not looking to convert anyone to “my path” or have followers of “my path” it is my own journey and I rarely ever share my view with others. I think a spiritual path should be solitary and I don’t condemn anyone for their beliefs. I think if someone is on a spiritual path that is amazing, and I encourage them to follow that path. What I “think” about their path isn’t important, what they think about it is what’s important.
Today is the New Moon (at 13 degrees of Libra) and new moons are for new beginnings, so this blog is timed perfectly, and I didn’t plan this timing so it’s even more perfect. I was writing a post about a new jewelry item I am working on and thought how I would love to, at times, write about other things and here we are. I have created a separate space for these posts, and I am not sure how often I will post on this section. It will depend on my mood or what’s on my mind at the time. I love making and creating jewelry, but it isn’t my only focus and at times writing about jewelry gets a bit mundane.
My jewelry has become a bit of an expression of my beliefs and the things I love in life. Most is fun and functional, but I have other pieces I create that are at the core of who I am, and I have been expanding these pieces more and more over the years. While I create these pieces, I think a bit about the spiritual aspects behind them and I find that I would love to write a bit more about those aspects. I hope you will follow along with me on this journey and if you would like to get a weekly notice on new posts just go to the front page and sign up for our newsletter so you get them!
