This looks like the topic of the week. I was meditating and visualizing this morning, and I couldn’t get the topic to disappear. So it’s been percolating for at least a day. I am not sure why it’s there, because she wasn’t some one I followed much. I did not buy many of her products, but I was aware of her products, even looked through some of the decks. Her stuff did call to me in the “ooo…shiny” way. But most of time I asked if this was for me, the answer was no. The products that I did buy, once they served what I needed them for, I recycled them back into a bookstore. So I was rather struck as to why she was percolating in my brain today.
One of my teachers mentioned that my empathy is coming online more and more, and that may be why she was so present for me this morning. There are a great deal of people upset with her decision to convert to Christianity full on. I can even understand it, having lived in the bible thumper belt for 13 years. But … this is her choice. It’s not mine. It’s not yours. It’s not anyone Else’s choice, but hers. And she has made it.
However her choice touches so many people. People who have looked up to her. People who have depended on her. People who have learned from her teachings. People who loved her work. Most of them are feeling a sense of loss and betrayal. To have some one that has helped them see a different way, to have seemingly turned her back on them, to make a choice for her. To follow her truth. There is this sense of loss, anger, betrayal from her students, fellow healers, and customers.
What struck me about her video that she recently did, she doesn’t say that she condemns divination, fortune telling, and sorcery. She states that the bible forbids them. That if she gets the message that she should discontinue what she is doing, she will. That it’s the way she was using her gifts that was the problem. Now, from other blogs and videos, I understand that some earlier posts or videos may have mentioned that people who had certain products should burn them, because they have dark energy about them. But in this video she was very careful not to say something in that nature. She was very careful to have her bible, and reference quotes that had bearing on what she was saying. She was very careful not to condemn people in this video.
I guess the moral of the story and experience, is that this in itself is a teaching moment. What you take away from this lesson is up to you. Where you take it, is up to you. Follow your own path. Follow your own truth. Try to make sure that the people you follow, are in line with the truth you are trying to live or experience. Even then that may not be enough, because them may change.
Ultimately, this is your life. This is a life you chose to live in this time, in these times, at this time, and where you go is your choice.
