I tried sharing my energy healing story with my parents and our friend tonight. I’ve got to give them credit, they didn’t laugh at me or shut me down which truly is the best they could have done but it sure is visible how uncomfortable it makes them. Later, when we were chatting with a different family acquaintance she brought up my Facebook posts – another thing that my family is clearly uncomfortable with but takes better than I could ask them to – she kindly told me how much she appreciates my posts and then says, “I can see that you really have a spiritual side,” my response, because I clearly don’t think through the things that come out of my mouth before I say them, was, “thanks yes I do but my parents don’t like it so I don’t talk about it in front of them.” …sometimes I think I seriously need to work on my social skills. But that does run in our family more so than all of this spiritual voodoo so perhaps I just have to own it.
As different as we are I am extremely lucky in the sense that it doesn’t matter how crazy I sound, my parents will always do their best to let me be me. Even when it makes them uncomfortable. Apparently we choose our parents before birth based on what lessons we need to learn in this lifetime. This is something that I can’t wait to learn about because I know that my parents and I have put each other through so much unnecessary pain, and I hope that by learning about how and why I chose them I can begin to heal our entire family lineage.
