  • New Book Asks: Can Traditional Religion and New Age Beliefs Coexist?

    Perth, Australia (PRWEB) February 23, 2012

    Rev. Vicki Marriner is known by those closest to her as a clairvoyant, a psychic medium and a spiritual healer. But it wasnt always this way. In fact, for most of her life, Marriner wasnt even aware of the spiritual gifts she possessed, which she discusses in her new book, Angels and Lamb Chops: A Spiritual Journey (published by Balboa Press).

    It wasnt until the devastating loss of one of her twin newborn babies that Marriner began to understand her connection to another world. The traumatic event sent Marriner catapulting down a path of grief and hardship that eventually lead to self-discovery and a spiritual awakening. Marriner writes about her journey in the new spiritual memoir, Angels and Lamb Chops.

    A tribute to her twin girls, who were nicknamed Angel and Lamb Chop upon their birth, Marriners book provides readers with a brutally honest account of some of lifes most difficult moments and gives encouragement to persevere.

    Forgiving ourselves is the biggest lesson in life, Marriner says. If our soul is free of past baggage, we can move forward with love in our hearts for what is ahead.

    Moving forward is exactly what Marriner did. She developed an unusual outlook on life one that married traditional religious views with progressive New Age beliefs about spirituality. Today, she is happy performing marriage ceremonies along with psychic readings and spiritual cleansings.

    Marriner says she hopes her own life experiences can inspire others to become more grounded to their lives here on Earth and more connected to the nearby spiritual world. Only then, Marriner says, can we achieve personal growth, understand the power of forgiveness, and find peace with ourselves.

  • Consciousness Evolving Without Religion

    bit incoherent *cough cough* which i apologize for. for the purposes of this video, as discussed herein, i use the term “spirituality” as it pertains to the distinctive characteristics of a being or entity. there’s more to my views on that, which if anyone’s interested i might expand on in a future video. suffice to say, i do NOT think spirituality *as a factor of human psychology* or as a human inclination, necessitates any belief in the supernatural, or a belief in an immortal soul or an afterlife. its more referring to the concept of Self and the assumption that there is something distinct to each individual, beyond mere appearance, which seems so prevalent in our species. obviously, here in this discussion i’ve not mentioned the phase of polytheism which dominated much of human history, but its not really germane to this discussion. early spiritual practices and rituals were centered around communicating with, placating, or trying to influence their god or gods. this inevitably lead to giving the people responsible for this, power and influence within the group. thus was born religion. just one instrument of many that human beings have devised to control or manipulate one another. it need not arise that way. other worlds will have other conditions, and the intelligent beings who evolve may do so from predatory carnivores, and therefore have less empathy for certain lifeforms, and hence they would develop differently. or they could be nocturnal, or aquatic, or any

  • New Age Religion Redefines Black History

    Newark, NJ (PRWEB) November 06, 2011

    “My first memory is me as a child, running from the shadows,” says Cruz about growing up with a mother with schizophrenia. From this experience, Cruz took a different approach to self-help and new age religions. People create mental prisons for themselves, whether it is guilt, regret, or longing, everyone is tortured by the voices in their heads, says Cruz.

    These voices are what Cruz calls the shadows, the suppressed memories, thoughts, and emotions. The only way to tame those voices is to bring them into the light. People can do this through awareness by understanding the truth about history.

    ‘When The Shadows Began To Dance’ is a book that rediscovers black history through the main character Nelly Reyes. She suffers from mental illness, a broken family, abuse, and neglect. She is able to piece back the parts of her soul by allowing herself to be guided by her ancestors and the Seven African Powers.

    Nelly is then able to understand the religion of her ancestors, a religion that helped them to survive slavery in the New World. When The Shadows Began To Dance is now available on for purchase.

    Yamaya Cruz reveals the hidden secrets of the past. She incorporates ancient knowledge with African folklore to create a storyline that is powerful and haunting. She writes with fearless passion, keeping the reader engaged long after the story is told. She aspires to write books that are about spiritual healing, with emotional feeling, so peoples shadows can dance. She currently writes articles and blogs about shamanism, Orisha worship, chakra healing, and much more!

  • Why is it that Atheists come to “Religion and Spirituality?”?

    Question by wendalore: Why is it that Atheists come to “Religion and Spirituality?”?
    Since they do not believe in them? (another millionth question – I think I’ve seen this one.)

    Is it to feel better than religious people by dint of their superiority?

    Is it to spread the light of wisdom to what they see as the primitive “heathen”… as if they were like the missionaries in the olden days come to spread Christianity to the Pagans?

    Is it because they are so much happier than Theists, and they want everyone to be happy like they are?

    I got a LOT of answers to my question about Atheism being a kind of faith. The dedication of the Atheist, whom, day or night, can be found to tell Theists they are wrong does smack of the fervor of the Evangelical missionary. So I guess on an emotional level, it still seems like a kind of faith to me.

    But I digress: Speaking as honestly as you can, looking deep inside, why do you, Atheist person, come here to R&S?

    Answer by Sea squill Squill
    Environmental factors determine one’s beliefs. This is why the Truth with a capital T is timeless. Note how ‘timeless’ doesn’t take a capital T… this is because our universe is one atom of another universe.

  • Why are there separate sections for “Religion and Spirituality” and “Mythology and Folklore”?

    Question by Unnecessary X’s: Why are there separate sections for “Religion and Spirituality” and “Mythology and Folklore”?
    It all really depends on perspective.

    To a Christain, the Ancient, nature-based Gods and Goddesses would be a Myth. To a Pagan, the story of Jesus would be simply a Myth. It goes on and on…

    Why are there two sections?

    Answer by good boy!
    It is redundant, I know.
