I discovered that the fear-based beliefs of my childhood religion were a greater abuse than any physical or sexual abuse I endured. Spiritual abuse affected me in a very deep an profound way that prevented me from finding true happiness.
I am not a member of any church and instead choose to follow the will and guidance of my own soul in direct connection to Spirit. No middle man necessary.
The core belief in my childhood religion was that men are Gods and God is man. I was born into the belief that I was, and always would be, worth less than men.
