I grew up in a very religious household and was very religious and involved in the Christian, pentacostal church for much of my life. I am still very spiritual, although I've left many of the religious practices behind, for I do not agree with some of them. Within the past few years, I have come to terms with my sexuality and have expressed to my parents and friends that I am lesbian.
My question is this. My parents and many people within the church are very much against this. They feel that I am possessed with a 'bad' spirit and am listening to 'bad' spirits. However, I feel as though I'm very much in tune with my spirit, and spirit guides. It's hard to be confident in what I believe, when these 'mature spiritual' people claim they know better. What spirits are they listening to? And are they listening to their spirit guides, or just their ego's and subconscious???
