What Can You Learn About Spirituality from the Black Pentecostal Church.
As a child growing up in the pentecostal church I was very well aware that we were not like the churches on TV who sat quietly in their seats while their pastors calmly exegeted texts that were devised by catholic priests. Those pastors could speak in a whisper and still be heard on the back row of the church, however my church was a bit different.
Have any of you pentecostals ever wondered why we just HAD to have a drum or bongos in the building even if there was no other musician?
Many of you are well aware of what it’s like to be taught by pentecostals so I’ll spare you the gory details, but just know after some years in the church, I left because there were too many things that did not make sense and even more ideas that should have received attention, but were ignored AND you were crucified if you wanted to think or use your mind.
Like many of you, I left because the concept of an eternal hell did not resonate with me in light of the many dreams of reincarnation and spirit visions that I was blessed to have as a “Pisces” child.

Tarot Card pulled prior to this writing – #Strength
Where do I start?
We need it, long for it, crave it, but don’t know exactly what it is….damn this flesh that covers and veils the truth and hides me from my freedom. Then one day you see them. With head cocked to the side you wonder why so much interest in a stranger, until they speak and you hear your words, thoughts, feelings and ideas coming from the mouth of an incarnate who is outside of you. Wow, you may have just found your twin flame.
Now I’ll Live Happily Ever After?????
It is not about #sex even though many twins think it is and delve into it just to find they repel each other…or not. Perhaps you are to know that the other exists but remain at a distance because the strength they give you would make the journey in this life too easy because together the #power you have is unstoppable. Have you met your twin flame…your other self? The emotion they evoke is life shattering and the #frustrations that come as a result of NOT being able to get to them is even worse. Environmental influences, the #matrix, distance, other relationships prevent you from physically interacting, but I have good news>..LOL
I dedicate this piece to my Twin.
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Am I pressuring you to give me more than you should or do you feel comfortable with me….and do I care? When it comes to relationships, especially the spiritual ones with #twinflames, we have to be careful to avoid what is expected by the status quo because there are typically very clear reasons for your coming together on this plane. So often, specifically in a woman’s baby-making years, women find it almost impossible to avoid pressuring men into settling down, starting a family and forgetting about their dreams in order to take care of us, but is that fair? What are we afraid of if we know that by doing good to this person and loving them unconditionally, they will always be there? Twin flames are protected you know.
