Hey Trace, it’s great that you and your brother have psychic powers. You should try to communicate with spirits. There are good and bad spirits. I agree with Debbie that there are many spirits whom you may not know but they want to communicate with you. You should try to communicate with them.

Dear Brandi, So happy for you that you have found your path. I'm mostly Buddhist, but lately have been enjoying a close relationship with God as well. I feel part Pagan as well because I respect everyone's Gods, Goddesses, or alternative path. I have a son who is born again. He has not tried to proslytize anyone in our family or his friends and we have been grateful for his respect toward our different beliefs. He lets his life show his light and if others want to follow, they are welcome. He's a pretty awesome son too. In this way, he has preserved his friendships and relationships.

That is great, Ruby June. A person secure in his or her beliefs, and living a life of love and compassion, will emanate that light from the inside out. I am happy for you and your son.

Good day to all!

Today is a beautiful and warm sunny day, and I will continue the yard work I started yesterday. I love working outside among the elements of nature. It is very therapeutic and healing for me. Right now there are various flowering trees and bushes in bloom that are welcoming the spring season, and it is a pleasure to take in all the lovely colors. The bird song alone is very comforting and life affirming.

Do you have any activities planned today that you enjoy and that nourish your spirit? Do tell!

I have thought much on the line between religion and faith my whole adult life but now as I have children of my own I find myself at a crossroad on how to decide to walk that line. I wrote on it in my personal blog at Time with A &amp; N (don't want to link it for fear it'll be deleted) but it's a post called My letter to God. It'll be under the tab for most popular posts. I see myself more as a spirtual person but not a religious person but I feel that I should build a relationship with the church for my children. If you have a second read it and let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

Hi Angela,

I was at that same crossroads myself when I had children. Spirituality and religion are sisters, but they are not twins. It is funny because we normally don't worry about being religious unless we were raised in a religion and/or when we have children and feel compelled to provide some spiritual guidance.

The definition of a religion includes a set of beliefs and rituals that support those beliefs.

Sometimes, I feel as though I put the cart before the horse when it came to teaching my children about God. Becoming aware of their own spiritual nature and their innate connection to Divine should have been first before I rushed to connect them with an organized church. It became all about rules and doctrine. Beliefs were drilled into them instead of allowing them to trust their own senses and connection to God.

I regret that.

I was able to reverse some of the damage and they as adults now are finding their way.

As for me, I greatly love and respect all religions as I feel that they all are man's attempt to know and worship God. There is no one right way to love and worship God...except your way.

Religion can be fantastic for providing a community. Community shouldn't be underestimated.

I can't find your blog! I'd love to read your post.

Today it is raining pretty good and I am getting things done indoors. I took some time to enjoy a few cups of tea to relax. The plants and grass outside are getting the water they need for sustainance. It is calming to watch the rain come down for the living things that need it. The sun just peeked out for a bit too. It is a peaceful time.

What are you doing today to find some peaceful moments?
