What would you say if…

I told you I was a medium with psychic abilities?

Would you automatically discredit it?

Does the Science say otherwise?

Is it out of your comfort zone to acknowledge something that may or may not be based on evidence/facts?

“Believing is seeing!”

Until we open our minds to the world outside of our own, beliefs will continue to be a no-no for table talk.

What if I said people over think too much and feel too little…

We live in a society where everything is questioned and we are taught to doubt the very God given right that we are born with.

A little thing called instinct. “Listen to your gut!”

Is it far fetched to want to live in a world where all of the above is acknowledged/accepted?

That there is some truth in all beliefs?

Why don’t some spend a bit more time digging for those roots?

Are they afraid of what they might find?

Shall we SHOUT our religious beliefs from the rooftop?!

Where do you draw the line?

Why is it not ok to openly discuss religious beliefs?

How do you decide if the line was crossed?

If nothing else, can we appreciate the passion one must feel to share? To spread the “word” and potentially help?

How do we openly communicate without imposing on others?

How do we start the conversation?!

I sold my soul…

Don’t worry you don’t have too…

If it counts for anything, my 8yr old self did it with the best intentions.

From what I read the average soul goes for $540,000-1.8 million; according to a quick Google search.

But money wasn’t my motive and it sure wasn’t fame.

My innocent mind didn’t truly grasp the understanding of God, the Devil, Heaven, or Hell. The Basic Christianity principles.

God didn’t appear to exist in my “hell” on Earth.

I’m sure most can agree, no matter your background; that we have a soul, an essence, or we are simply comprised of more that just our flesh.

So am I damned?! I ponder 🤔…

My motive was actually selfless if it counts.

But all pathways to hell are filled with good intentions, right?

My motive: I simply wanted to help others, make a huge difference, and survive.

Can you imagine a world in which a child would damn themselves for eternity simply to survive when they felt they could not on their own?

Is that forgivable?

Am I possessed? Do I require an exorcism?

Definitely interested to hear different concepts on this.

My advice…

Don’t do it.

This world is comprised of much more than what meets the eye.

Most of which the human mind fails to grasp.

Believe in the unbelievable.

Silence speaks volumes

Everyone speaks on positive/healthy communication skills, but what happens when there are no words left to be spoken.

Do we realize the power behind the silence?!

Can we “hear” the words left unspoken?!

Can we Read between the lines?

Can we turn silence into a positive communication skill?

Take back control when it has been taken from you!

My God hears my silence… no communication is the biggest form of communication.

Some are simply undeserving of our words.

It should be left; simply unspoken…

Judaism

I have definitely been drawn to this religion for quite sometime.

The language?! Beautiful!

The traditions remarkable.

The mother is the introduction to this way of life.

One of the oldest Abrahamic religions with the lowest amount of followers.

The ritualistic ideation behind age old traditions.

The covenant that God created with the children of Israel.

Very low conversion rate; A birthright!

The chosen ones by our one true God.

Persecuted through out time.

Yet, still never wavering in their faith.

Is this the â€śOne”?!

Have I finally encountered the connection between all of the religions I just seem to be drawn to?

… “the connection between the soul and the breath.”

But some may not even consider it a religion? Just a similarity rooted in all religious beliefs?

Animism!!!

Everything is connected…

Dating back to our barbaric days in which drawings depicted us as having a “soul” or simply something else inside of us.

Knowing we are more than our physical.

Still rooted in all belief systems to this day.

Not only are we all connected, but is this the connection?

Is this actually the beginning of all core religious beliefs?

Knowing that there is something much greater within us all.

Simply understanding that there is a greater purpose or that everything that is living, is in fact living purposeful.

Regardless of the details, there lies a core belief of the plurality of souls, spirits, or consciousnesses.

Is this the base?!

A bit about my current beliefs…

To start off I might add that some of my beliefs may contradict.

Or, maybe, I just haven’t stumbled across a religion that encompasses them all, quite yet?!

This is not to say mine are right and someone else’s are wrong.

Just looking to mark my beginning in my journey and expound upon as I go.

Maybe even just find similar persons.

To begin, I truly believe that there is ONE God. This God may go by different names to some but is all encompassing.

I believe that reincarnation is real. I believe only some remember past lives. Maybe that is because their journey was never complete or it is necessary to guide them in their current life. I believe humans come back as humans. I believe we look similar in each life.

Hence “familiar faces”…

I believe in the spirit realm coexisting and influencing our realm more than we realize. Just like they say children or the “innocent” are more prone to seeing ghosts or the supernatural.

As we age, adults seem to become more and more closed-minded or set in their ways. This inhibits our natural abilities. We are taught to doubt ourselves to stay “normal” or acceptable in a society that is quite lost.

I do believe in the concept of good and bad. Right and wrong. Light and dark. But, these lines are skewed and some see them differently.

I believe magic 🪄 exists in everything.

I believe some people are truly gifted with special abilities, but most don’t believe or understand.

We struggle fathoming things outside our normal realm.

I believe it takes the forgiveness of those we have wronged to move on in our afterlife.

I don’t know if I would use the words Heaven and Hell, but once we have made peace and have Chosen God, it is determined if we go to the equivalent of each.

I think we find our strength in Nature. Connecting with our Earth and living cohesively is necessary.

All living things have a purpose.

We as a society are typically focused on the wrong things in life. We lose sight of the “bigger picture”.

You don’t have to have a church to be connected to God.

Although once our hearts are open; our “people” seem to find us.

Every situation good or bad is a result of a decision you’ve made along the way.

This isn’t to say people deserve bad to happen or pain in their lives, but we are not given more than we can bear. These situations guide us, teach us, and ultimately strengthen us for what’s to come.

Sharing beliefs and ideology is the way to connect us on a whole new level.

We are not meant to be divided. I believe it is a choice.

Thoughts đź’­?!

So many things to ponder đź¤”

Voodoo and Catholicism.

Hoodoo and Protestant Christians.

Growing up I never equated magical practices or beliefs with Christianity.

Actually quite the opposite. My encounters with most Christians pointed me in the opposite direction.

But why?

There are so many beautiful blends of religious beliefs that I was unaware of.

Never taught, never spoken of.

Is this intentional? Do some just have a natural embrace to it all and others can’t fathom the similarities?

In traditional Christian beliefs haven’t they always been separated by choice?

Or is this just my naivety to a world far outside my own?

Occultism…beyond religion

Occult is a very broad term. The belief beyond religion and science. Wouldn’t some say that certain religious beliefs are similar?!

What’s the difference?

What makes this so different then Spiritualism, Shamanism, and certain monotheistic and polytheistic religious beliefs?

What is the beyond?

What is the normal scope that it reaches beyond?

Is it truly possible for mere humans to possess these supernatural abilities?

Have you witnessed such a thing?

Ahh, To explain the unexplainable…

Food for thought…

What if… the key to peace is simply the act of understanding everyone has a story and granting the ultimate gift of “Forgiveness”.

During your last moments, your transition to the afterlife, what if your only hope was for the person you “wronged/hurt” the most to forgive you? What if they held the power and determined if you would experience true peace in your Heaven.

Oh the power that would give them/you. Would they choose to save another’s “soul” and grant you peace?

Now, Picture the person that has hurt you unimaginably…

Now imagine them standing in front of you.

You just know, you hold the key to their peace.

Even if they don’t ask for it, maybe not even want it…

Would you grant it?

It is not necessary

We do not have to change the beliefs of others just because they are different than ours.

There most be some truth found in all.

But… if we could open our minds to hear other’s’ truths, we could stop the division!

Can we learn from one another without the hate or fear?

Shamanism

Where to begin?!

Absolutely fascinating…intriguing!

What is typically frowned upon in one part of the world as possible mental illness or even possession, is revered in another!

This is what I’m talking about. While all opinions considered, where do yours originate? What research and consideration was applied?

Gifted/special/chosen individuals that have a lifetime of suffering until they follow their path. Abilities demonstrated since young childhood and still mistaken as ill.

Is it because we fear the unknown?

Is it because of what we are raised to believe?

Is it intuition?

If we as a society were to open our minds for a second to believe the “Impossible is possible,” maybe we could actually grow as a civilization.

To be tormented with no choice; all to help save and guide your people is without question honorable.

To be a medium, clairvoyant, and lead your people into the afterlife?!? How scary and enlightening that must be.

The question must be asked, in Western societies, are we drugging our prophets and healers?
