Welcome to my Book of Mirrors



This is my spiritual journey. I am looking for the truth of who I am and who God is, unfettered by the traditions prescribed by my family, church and culture.

Who am I talking to?

Being raised to believe in the Christian trinity, I was told I could talk to Jesus, who was my friend, as well as praying to the Father in Jesus' name. I could ask the Father to send me his Holy Spirit in Jesus' name, and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to me what God (the Father or Jesus, I'm not sure) was saying.

So who do I ask to speak to?

I have recently discovered that Jesus called the Holy Spirit 'Ruach HaKodesh,' another feminine gender term.

In the Christian godhead we have the Father, and the Son. So could this be the Divine Mother?

Or did God model for us a single parent family?

I was always taught that God intended families to have both a mother and a father.

Does his own existence contradict this? Or do I have a heavenly Mother?

Suddenly my respect for my own mother improves..... as well as my own motherhood.

I'd like to speak to my Mother, please.

Wow what a fascinating point of view. I'm not the type to look things up in search of an answer. I like to go to people or just hear their theories, so keep it up!
