Today I come out of the closet. First, I don’t wish to offend anyone in the LBGTQ community and certainly not any of my friends in this community. Rather, I want to explore a different closet… the closet where other like-minded spiritual friends joined me in keeping our beliefs secret.
What Prompted This Opening Up?
As I prepared my Asian Chicken Soup, pictured above, my thoughts transported me back in time and space to Denver, Colorado 2014. The faces of the women who shared this soup with me came into focus. Their giggles mixed with mine as we filled our soup bowls in the basement kitchen of our teacher’s office space. Next, we settled into the sofa, or chairs in the sitting area. The silence broken by quiet sounds of contentment.
Our Common Ground
We gathered every three weeks or so to learn about ourselves and our special gifts. The class title, “Psychic and Personal Development”, had been shortened to simply “Personal Development” in my mind. Only later did I realize the importance of this class and its affect on me. Milestone steps in our development often escape us when they are happening.
Each of us had come to know our teacher, Kim Moore, in different ways. When she asked how I found her, she was very surprised. It was through a book recommended by a fellow employee at the Denver Police Department. Although he was also in the closet, his intuition prompted him to share. Within this book was the author’s recommended professional psychics and mediums by state. Although there were two in the Denver area, I was clearly drawn to Kim.
A Very Special Group
Apparently, this class was also pivotal for Kim. She decided it would be her last. We all loved watching her rise to a featured speaker at the Mind, Body, Spirit Celebration. Now I am privileged to know Meredith Johnson, The Healing Hummingbird, who will make your debut in the Cincinnati event.
Stayed tuned for more next week…
