"Beautiful stories. I connect daily with the angels and ascended masters. I love the stories of angelic intervention. I see it all the time in my own life. We must invite them in. They are waiting for our invitation. In love and light!"
"What an inspirational story. You are absolutely correct. We don't need a lot of money to give love, to give of ourselves. You are also in service by sharing all your wonderful knowledge on this community. Your presence here makes a…"
"I usually like Chris Thomas' articles but this one doesn't make sense to me. I understand ascension to mean "merging with your own god self". It's not about what is happening around us but what is happening within us. If we…"
Most mormons in Argentina have come from the US and speak very bad spanish haha. I've met a few. Somehow it's not very widespread here.
My family never gave up hope on me neither. I think I became officially an 'outcast' when I started living with my now husband without getting married (which we did later but only on legal terms, not in any church)
The often talk religion to me and give me religious books as gifts, which I don't even read but accept anyway.
My husband is interested in the same path where I am though it takes him a little longer to catch up lol.
Both my parents and their families (except for a few 'outcasts') are adventists.
Adventists' main belief is in the second coming of Jesus to take us to heaven (the adventists of course as the rest are all sinners lol) so that kind of picture of Jesus coming in the sky with his angels has always been present at home.
Adventists have some very harsh doctrines which made me hate them while I was a teenager mostly.
Saturdays are a holy day and you mustn't work, mustn't watch tv, listen to music or do anything that's not god related... =/
Then well there are things you cannot eat, cannot drink (mainly alcohol and coffee) and cannot do (go out dancing, attend some parties, wear earrings and jewelry, etc).
I could finally get out and started my own spiritual journey when I started college, though my family still keeps their beliefs and sometimes tries to convert me back. I honestly haven't told them about my real beliefs as they may think I'm evil possessed or something... like I've made a pact with the devil.
I don't say religious people cannot develop their spirituality... some of them can. I've got a cousin as an example but she's not adventist.
Now I am going a bit out on a limb, but perhaps Moonshine wanted to show you with the blood that he lives. Does not a being have to be alive to have blood? And too this was one of your concerns as to what happens in death. Just a thought.
You are very welcome and I am so glad I was able to assist even for a bit. I forgot to mention about the spiritual aspect of pets. I had a little Carin Terrier, Charlie he blew in during a tropical storm here many years ago in Maine. He was running down the rain-drenched road. I did not want a dog but ended up keeping him. Charlie was a very sick dog and I spent over $10,000 dollars trying to keep him alive when I realized I had to let go and stop his suffering. It was sooo hard, but I did let go. Anyway, I can't remember if it was weeks or months or days later, but Charlie visited me at least three times. I would see him in my dream/awake state and I could actually feel his tounge licking me. I gave Charlie a job when he passed over and that was to assist other animals, especially the abused ones so he could teach them that there are humans that love animals. The last time Charlie visited he brought a dog of a friend who had passed over and I could also feel the noise of that dog. So there you go!
I believe we are always exactly where we are supposed to be and that there is divinity in all experiences. This is all just a dream and we are so much more than we appear in this reality. My place in this world, no matter where I am at or what I am experiencing, is in my heart. I have been homeless on the streets and I lost my beloved husband when his car was hit by a train. There was a richness that came with the passage of time and now I have a gift I use to help others. I say this to give you perspective. You will walk through this and be on the other side.
One day you will look back and see a blessing that you may not see now and all will be well. I just say "Thank you God for the blessing that I may or may not see". It is my mantra. And I live a very blessed life. I sure have met some wonderful people in just the few days I have been here! Take care.
Delighted to make the connection. I too have a love of herbs, aromatherapy and all things healing. I read my first herb book at age 10 and became a holy terror with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme! Look forward to getting to know you.
