Perhaps it sounds funny for Artemis to talk about spiritualism. That’s goddess, not God. The only worshiping I want are offerings of coffee, tea, good music, and chocolate.
Seriously, though. The other day, I was talking with a friend about The Being Artemis Project. She asked if I wrote through a spiritual viewpoint. The answer is yes. I don’t quote scripture, because my memory is shoddy, but I believe and know what I write is inspired by a Higher Being. I say God. You can say Energy. Something Out There. I tell everyone, “I have no idea what I’m doing, but someone does.”
It’s not always easy to express what we believe. My beliefs don’t fit into any set religious cubbyhole. I adore the Catholic ceremonies and I socialize at LDS events. I have been inspired at Full Moon circles. A majority of my personal worship and prayer takes place in my own backyard. Spiritualism is a touchy topic, because it’s personal.
Recently, I read the old Dale Carnegie book, “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living”. One whole chapter is devoted to the topic of spirituality and its benefits. Even an Atheist can pray. Don’t believe me? Do you believe in energy? Even if you don’t think you’re talking to another being, it’s okay. Just talk. Get out your thoughts and feelings every evening. Make a list of what you are thankful for. Whatever works for you. Sit among the trees and let your thoughts go. Breathe.
This helps you sort your thoughts and focus on the moment. Less stress keeps your mind clear and helps your mental and physical states.
Find your personal spiritual place.
Have a great weekend!
