I have been told several times by psychic mediums, that in a past life I was a Catholic Priest. For me this rings true.
I also feel I have karmic baggage from this life as a priest that I am clearing in this life. Funny enough in this life I don’t consider myself religious at all, religion doesn’t really resonate with me.
I consider myself a spiritual person. I believe in a supreme creator, God, ET’s, our higher nature and spirit in many forms.
This article is not to convince you or win you over in one way or the other, as ultimately, we all have free choice in what we believe.
There is some truth in religion, but often the message has been distorted over time, and it has a human separation element.
Some religions teach that we are separate from God, and we need to worship him.
Some say that we are born sinners and we need to repent our sins.
Does that sound like a loving creator – or human interpretation and dogma?
I believe we are a part of God simply having a human experience.
And because we are a part of God, we are also a co-creator on the earth plane.
There have been many great teachers over the ages, to assist humanity on their spiritual path. Unfortunately some of their messages have been altered, to suit the priests and churches in power at the time.
For some, seeking religion can be an awakening experience, to question the meaning of life and contemplate why we are here.
For me personally I believe that essentially we are all spiritual beings having a human experience. As we are walking around as a human being, over time we ultimately seek the light and enlightenment.
As a free will human being, our spiritual awakening is a very personal experience.
Some people may find spiritual nourishment in religion, or perhaps, in meditation or a new age movement.
We are all essentially different people, and therefore there is a lot of choice when it comes to faith. Planet Earth is a very diverse planet; no one looks the same, and we have many different races and cultures.
For me being a spiritual person is to accept everyone as they are and not attempting to change them.
We all walk a unique path in life, and it is not up to us to judge another.
What we believe and have faith in today will probably change tomorrow, as we are constantly evolving. Change is a part of life. Our understanding is always increasing, through our experiences and learning.
Keeping an open mind is important, because what we believe in today may change in the future.
Whether you consider yourself a religious or spiritual person doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you try to make the highest choices in life and be kind to yourself and others.
