I have decided to blog daily about my experiences in coming out of the New Age and into the loving arms of Jesus Christ. I knew I would face persecution, but it was pretty hard for me to take yesterday. My husband and I wanted to enjoy the blizzard, but I had to face some cold hard facts first. After reading the first in my series entitled The Rabbit Hole. my ex-Reiki practitioner was pissed. Full on frontal pissed. She said I had “slandered and abused her name.” Ok, I didn’t mention any names. “People know you have come to me before, I have never done any harm to you.” I didn’t say she did, as a matter of fact, I remember trying to protect her. Look, I said. I apologized profusely for hurting her. Told her she didn’t hold a gun to my head. Told her I loved her and was worried that charlatans would be taking advantage, more advantage of her……..pled with her to understand.
“If you’re going to throw out the hiking stick I gave you I want it back.”
I told her my husband had just taken the poor, demonic black cat outside….to shoot it. Turns out that poor thing had more than 3 lives, and it broke my heart, as well as my husband’s to have to kill it. I had found it yesterday morning, laying next to our toilet in the bathroom. Bad day indeed. This person whom I thought loved me? She got out the big guns. “Don’t you dare play the victim. We are responsible for our own healing.”
I felt so badly, I quickly wrote a blog to apologize. But then I read her words again.
“Our suffering doesn’t make us special.”
Love can build a bridge, but you can’t fix stupid.
