Many people have asked me how I got to be so ‘New Age’. After all, I was raised in a Lutheran home – memories of going to Sunday school and even being ‘confirmed’ in the church at age 14 are quite clear in my mind. I was surrounded by your typical a-la-carte Christian – people who would pick and choose what “sins” they deemed okay and likely haven’t read the Bible but who identified, largely, as Christian. C&E (Christmas and Easter) folks and others who were devoutly religious. None, that I can recall, were anything but believers in Jesus. I am not who I was raised to be. I respect all religions and have a deep curiosity about them, but I consider myself to be a more spiritual person than religious. So how did I get to be this way?
During a rather dark period in my life 3 years ago, I entered a Salvation Army after paying my cell phone bill. This is something I wouldn’t ordinarily do (going into the Sally Ann’s, not paying my cell bill). In typical ‘me’ fashion, I went to the book section. I stumbled upon the book in the picture on the left.
Remembering the Future by Colette Baron-Reid. This book opened my eyes, and my heart, to spirituality. This book paved the way to my personal transformation. After reading Colette’s story into mediumship and opening her own life up to being in touch with her intuition, my appetite for learning this sort of thing has been insatiable. Every day I am learning something new – finding someone else who is like-minded, opening up my life to living following my intuition, balancing my chakras, etc… Every day, I thank my lucky stars for stumbling upon this book 3 years ago. If you haven’t already, I highly suggest reading it. Colette Baron-Reid is an amazing soul and I have no doubt in my mind that I found this book during my dark period for a reason. In this case, I didn’t ask, but I did receive, and I am grateful.
