Let’s look at a different point of view in regard to LGBTQ dynamics with a slant on the T.
After a long career and psychological counseling my path took a turn into the metaphysical world. This Turn has changed my entire life. As we ramp up our entries on our blog I would like to share some of my metaphysical insights with you.
I would like to start out with these thoughts that are based on my personal beliefs. You do not have to agree with any of them but that’s the basis for my thought process. Very basically Metaphysics means anything beyond the physical so it includes every theology, every belief system, every religion etc. and believes that everything is comprised of energy.
As quantum physics shows energy always was and always will be and that this energy transmutes and transforms through many lifetimes of evolution. My belief is in past lives. I believe that most of us have been here before and will probably be here again after this lifetime. I know this is in conflict with a lot of other philosophies and religions but it is my basis for my life.
I also believe that we travel in Soul pods so that those that we feel like we’ve known before or that we have strong connections with we have probably known previously.
We could’ve been male or female, we could’ve been parents, lovers, siblings with those in our soul pods. Our relationships change over time to learn lessons and evolve which is our purpose for being here.
When we move from one lifetime to another if we change gender we are doing that to learn more about the gender that we bring into this lifetime. I believe that transgender people are between lifetimes as a different gender and have not fully come over to the transition of the gender they claim this time.
I also believe that gay/lesbian people are here to learn about their own sexuality with the partner of their choice in this lifetime. Whether it is by choice (thats another blog lol) or it is a matter of being born gay does not matter and does not change the lessons to be learned.
I think that that’s enough information for our first blog about metaphysics and the LGBTQ community. I look forward to discussions and questions and I will be posting frequently about more of my thoughts on the subject. Please stay safe.
SCORE!!!! SCOTUS gave us a victory this week. We are over the top excited for the win. The Supreme Court voted 6-3 to honor the civil rights act which protects the rights of LGBTQ people. Even though this is a win on the federal level we still have a long way to go on the state level in Pennsylvania. Right now people can be fired or evicted just because they are gay. Although now we can take this to the supreme court when necessary, it would be in our best interest to have the fairness act passed which would protect all of the rights of the LGBTQ community in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Write your local legislators, right to Governor Wolf, do what you can to bring attention to the situation. Most people you speak to will have no idea But these protections don’t exist. We can do this together. The time is now. This is a big defeat for the administration and power right now who have been working hard to take away rights in so many diverse areas. Stand strong.
These days are challenging for all of us. Time alone=time to think. Thinking is not always a good thing. Especially if you are struggling with issues of sexuality, gender identity etc. Stinkin thinkin I call it. We need to think positive thoughts and anytime a negative thought pops up say thank you for sharing and let it go. The Coronavirus is actually giving us an opportunity to be born again. To love and accept ourselves To be uniquely who we are without the judgment of the outside world.
We are perfect exactly as we are. Reach out to people of like mind. Go out and help others who need support and kindness now. Fill your heart up with good deeds out there. People are without food, housing and jobs. So many are in worse situations than we are.
We are all in this together. Love one another. Be brave. Walk in faith and gratitude. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
None of this would exist without the journey I am taking with my son A.J.. My son is a transgender man and the journey has not always been easy for either one of us. However on the other side now it is our mission to help bring resources to LGBTQ community. Unfortunately there are not a lot of resources for LGBTQ/transgender people or their support system of family and friends. We had nowhere to turn and no one to help us figure our way through this process. And trust me it is a process. This blog will hopefully be a place where people can share their journey, their challenges and their trials with people going through the same issues.
We are hoping through a common safe space we can address the issues of depression, contemplation of suicidal thoughts and help keep drug use at a minimum. Feeling alone and different is a major aspect of these transitions and we want all of you to know that you’re not alone.
A.J.‘s willingness to be truly who he is over all these years has taught me how important it is to be true to yourself regardless of what others around you may think. Talking with like-minded people is a major asset to this community. Please feel free to suggest any subjects that you want to speak about, to reach out with any questions you might have and to spread the word about Emerging Paths as a place for others to join in the conversation . We are looking forward to hearing from all of you and sharing our progress along the way.
