ok , a short time away - reflecting, meditating & soul searching has made me realize I must be true to myself, true to who I am and what I believe and I am very sorry if some of my readers don't agree, but the world is a big melting pot - I believe in what I do because that is who I am - my grandparents were part of the spiritualist church - I am on a journey and I have no idea where I am going but I don't try to sway people to my beliefs, because my beliefs are my own. I don't try to convert and now I guess I have broken one of my pa's golden rules - don't discuss religion.
I am still a vintage girl, just like my profile says - always have been and always will be but I guess I am a vintage girl with a twist.
I use crystals sometimes - and they work. I use herbal medicine (very vintage, I think - look at mediaeval times) and I use prayer, angels and whatever works for me at the time. If I think I need help from a certain saint, well I call them in too. I call them my healing modalities. And I believe that if something natural works, why not use it before resorting to chemicals or radical measures? God has put everything on this earth for us to use - even St. Hildegard used things from nature - rocks, stones and plants.
The Lord hath created medicines out of the earth; and he that is wise will not abhor them. ~Ecclesiasticus 38:4
then I read this:
so with all that said - I am back and I am still the same ms*robyn that I was last week. posting about my life, my beliefs, some vintage tips and tales and hopefully making friends along the way. I have zipped my lip on religion and will follow my pa's advice from now on.
