I have always known I was different, that I believed different since I was a very young child around age 4. I am one some may call an old soul or know that I have been here before. I have never liked being too much with children my own age, as I do love toys very much, I liked looking at them an not really playing with them. I learned to read even around age 3 1/2, and was reading books I had no business as a child. The libraries would always directed me to the childrens section but I wanted to read adult books. Not porn, but books about life, learning and such I found interesting. I had to start studying religious things on my own, because I was seen as “to young,” to understand or grasp the concept of deep things. I mostly went along with it all until I was pretty much old enough to speak my mind with out getting back handed. In my family, church, and social background, children were “seen and not heard.” You did not embarrass the family, friends, or elders of the church, or you would get “what for,” later.
I have shared that I was raised a strict Christian with Jewish enhancements. My maternal grandmother was Irish/Jewish and Native American, yet a mountain hillbilly, go figure. Anything is possible in America. We all are really mixed up with something. Well, she was raised Jewish and Baptist, but practiced her natural medicines, or witchery on the side as has been passed down from generation to generation for I don’t know how long. I learned many things growing up from her and my mother.
Even with this, I believe in the Trinity: Father God, Jesus the Christ (the anointed one and son of God) and the Holy Spirit (our comforter and constant companion). I myself have a hard time believing or doing the goddess thing. Some say the Holy Spirit is the female part of God, that is easier to swallow then having a separate goddess. I do believe in Mother earth – Gaia. It is the earth that keep us, provides the natural part of our lives. She takes care of us as we take care of her. There is earth magick, as there are the others. The father God, Creator or as you see make all possible. There are so many things yet to learn and understand. A friend of mine is helping me, she has a website with some explanations and links that may help others also you may want to check out http://www.theravenwing. org it can only help. It came before this blog site I believe. I am always studying on my own and finding out new things, delving into old ancient texts, scriptures, histories, and looking at films. I just saw on on Jesus in India. This raises some good questions, and may shake up others theology. Me, I am cool, I know in who and where my Faith lies regardless.
Peace and Blessings be upon all.
We are Salt and Light.
