    Mixing Religions/What am I...?

    Post  FaerieofYouth on Sat Jul 30, 2011 8:24 am

    I couldn't figure out whether to post in the 'Feeling lost' section or here, so I decided to just post here anyway. I posted my introduction a little bit ago and I think I was supposed to post my concerns in some of the other forums so forgive me... I was just trying to post why I'm on here. So here it goes...



    I believe in God. I don't attend church... I haven't felt a church that I like or feel at home going to. I really want to get my spiritual path straight. I believe in Faeries and I use Brian Froud's tarot deck... I believe in Astrology and things of that nature.. So, what AM I? Can religions be mixed and if so,what religion would this be considered if there is one...? New Age Christianity? Christianity Spiritualism? Or am I just considered Spiritual/myself with no religion but a relationship with God rather..?I believe in Angels, Demons, Karma, and Reincarnation (to some degree) ... and I find some of the things in the bible to be just a little contradicting in some aspects.. I also believe I'm an Indigo Child/Adult and would love to meet others like me. I have such a hard time finding people to remotely relate to. It would be nice to make some new friends. Thank you for reading. -Sarah

    how about stop looking for a definition for yourself and just be who you are? does it really matter what type of "religion" you are? practice what you truly believe in, if necessary create your own rituals and prayers. when you be you, truly you, you will find people like you, but as long as you are lost, you are lost on the inside as well and you will never find a place of your liking. and yes, maybe you will never find a place of your liking, but you will be yourself and i can promise you that you will find others like you to share your believes and thoughts and feelings.

    Thanks for the input... That's my problem too... Being myself. I would like to go to some sort of church where I can belong just to feel a little better about going and still practice my beliefs, even if I don't I'm going to try and take your advise. Alas, I have never truly accepted myself for who I am... I really really need to at some point.

    i know it is not easy to be yourself when you are lost and not sure about anything. and i understand your need for some outside support. know that all will come in good time. take it day by day and work on being yourself and understanding what you want to be and how.
    and i know we are not like real people you can have coffee with, but we are here and this is really a great place with very kind and loving people who will help you and support you. :ghug:

    Hello

    That is an age old question and one I have simly for self come to put as "Lynn Just Me Just Lynn" that is what it says on me business cards. THEN in small print goes the "titles" that one seems to need in life to tell other's what one does.

    Man if anyone has mixed Religions in life's path then that be ME. From one Pole to the opposite Pole in the Light and in the Dark paths. To come to a wonderous place of acceptance and peace with it all. While I do not walk with God, as I can nor prove or disprove in God I have come to embrace God. One does not I feel have to hold any Religion in one's house to have acceptance in Religion.



    I so LOVe to read and learn about all Faiths and Religions and Healings ext.....and take something possitive from all of them that might well call to me. I work with Spirit and I write at times for a Chiristian Site.....but I not be Christian but I am embraced there for the understandings I have. The World I so feel is starting to see we are all ONE and that we can all LOVe on that level of beleifs and still stay pure to whom we are.

    I have quite a mixed thing going on too, no religion as such, i'm just me, I used to consider myself a Spiritualist but i'm not so sure about that anymore.

    I would say just be yourself, a free spirit as there is no need to pigeon hole yourself.

    Yeah I'm going to be myself... I have no shame in that what-so-ever. Just sometimes it can be a little difficult for me because I haven't truly loved myself since my self-esteem sucks. I know in time I'll get there. As for as religion, yeah being a free spirit sounds about right.. I mean I can be a Christian, but still have other things to believe in... It's nice to see some people can relate and that I know I'm not alone. :]

    I just 'do my own thing' too, no religion. I find it fits me much better than trying to live with doctrines and rules, and I can change my ideas and beliefs any time I feel is right...we all change as we grow and our beliefs change with us.

    I would suggest reading about Buddhism, as it is inward looking. Meditation can help with self-esteem issuses, it works for me. Hopefully one day everyone will be a free spirit. Now I'm going to put a load of them funny looking yellow things running around to cheer you up.




    They cheered me up.

    Believing in God does not require going to church. Your a Gnostic... :)

    Hi Sarah, I agree with what's being said here, We can be Spiritual without being religious.

    I understand what the OP is saying though. To find kindred spirits is good; a group who relates to your spiritual beliefs and speaks the same language. Just being oneself in one's own spiritual beliefs can get lonely for some people. I'm pretty much a loner but I do understand the need to socialize with others of a like mind sometimes in person and not just on a computer.

    Unitarian Universalist is a place where a lot of spiritual/pagans go to. Although I'm first and foremost Wiccan, I enjoy going to church there every Sunday (I don't belong to a coven or Wiccan study group), listening to a wonderful choir, and listening to beautiful, spiritual (non-preachy), interfaith sermons.

    I'm not sure if the OP wants to join a church, just knowing the fact that there are others out there who share the same spiritual path is a good feeling.
