Visitors to our Michaelmas Angel Day, please use this thread to ask any questions you like about angels and/or spirituality.
We have quite a number of very wise ladies here, who between them have a lot of knowledge on all kinds of topics.
Some that spring to mind are angels, crystals, tarot, oracles, runes, divination, Paganism, witchcraft, spellcraft, Christianity, prayer, devotion, ascended masters, meditation, affirmations, cosmic ordering/manifestation, past lives, herbs and oils, and dreams.
If you have questions about your path or any aspect of spirituality, please share it here, and someone who feels they have an answer for you will respond.
Please be aware that the person best placed to answer your question may or may not be online at the same time as you. Therefore questions may not be answered in order and may still be answered later in the week, so do come back and keep checking. Between us we will try to answer as many as possible or at least find you some information. The person responding to your question will like your post when they have replied. Please try not to like each other's posts otherwise then it is clear when your question has been picked up.
Hoping this isn't out of line... but I'm curious. Do any of you live lives like Theresa Caputo from Long Island Medium? Or is that completely for entertainment purposes? Can you pick up feelings/intuitions on others when you are out and about, or do you have to be in a certain place and/or state of mind?
Well, Im not a medium so I'll respond to the first one
Personally, my foundation is what I learned from my family. But I think spirituality is an ever changing thing, a process. I have learned so much and my beliefs have shifted as time has passed. I suggest, whatever you are drawn to, catches your attention and resonates with you, follow it. Take what you like from it, make it your own, and follow what feels right to you.
There are a lot of references in the Spiritual Notebook section and a lot of people on here who can add their thoughts as well
I will respond to both. I learned a lot of my practice in the last year or so. My family was in a very strict, narrow faith and it never felt right for me. Last year was very pivotal as I began meditation daily and began reading books which aligned with my beliefs. I have always been a seeker but only recently found direction in my seeking.
As for asking about being a medium, I typically do not pick up a ton of information when I am out and about BUT when I am out and about, I am invariably with my children and I feel it necessary to NOT read at those times. I do pick up things in the course of conversations with friends just sort of randomly... And that is fine. But, you know, being a mom comes first. Some people are connected all the time and that is great for them. when I am going to give a reading, I prefer to meditate beforehand and be in the best state possible.
I learned my beliefs through time and trial and error. I read many books and explored different Christian churches. Christianity left me questioning about a lot of things, so i kept looking. About 10 years ago, I re-discovered Paganism and did a lot of research. I am still learning as a Pagan.
I don't see dead people most of the time. I am an empath though and can sense things.
I began my current path approximately 3 years ago, and am still learning...I was brought up Catholic, and explored other Christian beliefs throughout my adult life, but always felt that something within Christianity was missing for me...
The advice the other ladies have given is what I have done (reading, researching, asking questions, sharing thoughts) and have found that the ladies, both here on SL, and the ladies on Pagan Living have been amazing fonts of information, or have suggested where else I can go to further my heart callings...and what Ashleigh says is true...in your own personal Spirituality, it is constantly evolving, and sometimes what you read or discover will resonate with you, and other times it does not...you may or may not find a "niche" that completes your heart and soul, but you most definitely have the right, and ok, to take what speaks to you and follow that...even if it's little bits and pieces of a bunch of different belief systems...You do not have to conform to one belief unless your heart tells you that that is who you are, and can completely wrap your soul around its teachings...
Research...use the tools available to you...listen to your heart...and let it come to you...starting out is difficult...there is so many different choices/paths...but you will know what is right for you when you find it...and it will come to you when it is supposed to...remember that...
As far as being a medium...I don't have definite mediumship gifts (yet), but I do believe that you can practice and train what is inherent in all people...gut feelings and intuition...and if you open up your vision...see things that have always been there, but you have just been too busy to notice, then they can help strengthen your intuition and gut feelings...This I am working on...mindfulness of all around me...more than just a passing glance and not registering their significance...
