| | Emotional/spiritual healing
Thank you for the warm welcome. I stumbled upon this website, and very much liked the name. I am coming out of a very long, dark phase in my life (several months), and am looking for anything and everything I can find to help the "lifting out" process. I have been a spiritual seeker most of my life; looking to find what I was promised but never found growing up in a Christian home. Although it sometimes seemed unbearable these last few months, I almost always realized, at least on an intellectual level, that God was leading me through the darkness into the light, dispelling the darkness as we progressed.
Much improvement has been made, and the healing has begun. I'm looking forward to interacting with like minded people in this way.
Last fall I moved from Portland, Oregon back to the family farm I grew up on in North Dakota to renovate the old farm house. What a different world I encountered here!!Coming from a very open, accepting liberal enviromment to one of the most conservative parts of the country in every concievable ways. From a city to a rural community where everyone knows everyone else's business. The change was quite un-nerving. Not to mention that it brought up all th old wounds from childhood. I have no idea what comes next in regard to my living/working situation; but I do know that what really matters to me is finding my Self. Communing with my Creator. Peace of Mind. Happiness. That, I am learning, can be found anywhere. The rest will take care of itself as I open to the guidance of the Universe.
If anyone knows any open minded folks in N. Dak, let me know. I want to meet them! Peace to you all. Thank you for being here.
