When I returned to the East Coast, the query of religion returned to my mind.
The last time I was on the East Coast for any length of time, I was constantly examining my beliefs. I think that it was because many of the people around me in the east believe that structured spirituality (churches, official books, dogma) is the only kind of spirituality.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I have posted energetic clearings that mention Buddha and Christ, that I have had phases in my life in which I regularly attended sweat lodges, and I also believe I mentioned somewhere that I am pagan.
Most recently, all of these religions (and more) came to a head during the holidays when I found myself at numerous religious celebrations for a variety of religions… and I loved each and every one of them.
In the past, I used to reject some religions over others, but now I am enjoying the ceremonies, beliefs and rituals of many, and I don’t feel that that is a bad thing.
We=e will never REALLY know… OR we already KNOW and it doesn’t matter what route we take…
So it feels very natural to accept several religions as my own.
If you saw Life Of Pi, you know there is a scene where Pi is told by his father that he cannot have several religions.
That scene in the movie really touched a nerve in me and it is what brought about this post topic.
If I look back, I can say that the strongest religious and spiritual influence on my life was reading On Walden Pond by Henry Thoreau. His section on religion states that we should examine all of the great religious works and pull from those works the concepts that make us feel the most spiritual and closest to God.
Since the day I read that, that has been the foundation of my belief system.
Additionally, it is my understanding that the nature of most indigo adults is to reject the BS formality and dogma of religions. At the same time, I believe that most indigos have rich spiritual lives. So it’s not an outright rejection of spirituality, just the human part of it when it feels contrived and gets in the way of true spirituality.
Last week, I took one of those prayers to Mary Magdalene out of the newspaper and followed the instructions. It felt good while I was saying the prayer, and I felt energetically connected to an energy that my usual pagan prayers (which feel equally as powerful) do not bring forth.
It fascinates me because realized I am able to feel the different nuance in the vibration, which is not something I have been capable of doing in the past with such acuity.
The day I started the prayer, I met a woman who also prays to Mary and the Catholic saints.
This lead me to conclude that religion also might provide an energetic connection that can draw forth like minded people due to similar vibration, even if that prayer or religion is not the particular reason the two or many people are gathered.
This was another fascinating (though not surprising, in retrospect) revelation to me.
Have any other indigo adults gone through any shifts in religious or spiritual belief lately? Do you think it has to do with the earth shift that occurred last month? (Do you think an energetic shift occurred last month?)
