Followup to a previous post: No, I don't really do anything connected with the metaphysical anymore. I might do a 'insight' (not a reading just a glance) into a question a friend might have but that's usually few and far between times. Perhaps I should tell a bit about my spiritual past.
I was raised to be able to make my own spiritual choices in life. Unlike those homes where the parents indoctrinate their children into their beliefs I was allowed to choose my own path. When I was growing up my parents attended an Anglican church. I think I attended two or three of the Christmas masses but by the time I reached 14 they were no longer going to them. So I guess from the age of zero to seventeen I was raised to believe in God but for what I knew of him I would consider myself more Agnostic than Christian.
When I was around seventeen or eighteen I was into the thick of things. My abilities to "see" things, both dark and light, was quite active and it was at that time I got involved in Christianity. A few of my friends were involved in it and through peer pressure they wanted me to be too. I was basically told that if I could see "darkness" and wasn't on the side of the light then I would be drawn into evil. It kinda reminds me of a condensed version of Star Wars. I chose to remain "on the fence" where I think everyone should be. I couldn't commit to their rather biased view of the world and after leaving for college I lost touch with them. In college, and for times after, I went through some very dark periods in my spiritual life, however, I don't think they were caused by the devil (sorry). I think I was a small town young adult raised with no real boundaries or guidelines in the spiritual realm and when faced with the challenges of life I didn't know what to do. I'll discuss that more at another time.
As an adult I drifted along and called myself an "Agnostic" for most of it. I believed in a "higher power" but couldn't get on board with some guy in the clouds looking down at us and allowing bad things to happen for no reason.
In 1999 I met someone, that I am still long distance friends with today, who introduced me to Neo-Paganism. And after that I began a new chapter in my life which has since evolved to where I am today. Which, I will discuss much further at another post.
