Merry Meet! I am the kickbuttmama! I have been on the Celtic Path for over 13 years. It's difficult for me to put it into comprehensible words but I sure will try.
When I was a child my family (and by that I mean even extended family) all belonged to a Fundamentalist church. I had many questions that no one could answer...like, well, what about the small tribes living the the rainforests of South America, they've never seen a white man so they've never heard of a white man's religion...Are you saying they will suffer an eternity in hell for that? To which the response was, "If they looked to the trees they would see evidence of 'God'"...this didn't answer the question for me. Finally when I was 14 my parents divorced. My father, and his 4 children myself included, were told we would all now be on Gods, "Second best list" because my father ended a marriage. This was the final straw that pushed my father, brothers, and myself out of the church.
Left adrift as a teen, searching for something to believe in, I looked into many different faiths...from Buddhism, to Baptists I've tried it all, but nothing really fit. Nothing gave me a sense of inner peace or, well, rightness,.
When I was 17 I became deathly ill with a blood dissorder. I spent about 600 days in the hospital. I found a book of shadows a friend had left me and attempted a self-healing. What it made my soul feel was undescribable. I knew I had found my Path.
So, after the 10 years of self-dedication I decided it was time to give back to the world. To attempt to help others in finding their own Path. I;ve had many on-line Book of Shadow's written, spread around everywhere. I finally decided to combine all of the m into this one central location.
I hope my words can help you on your own journey!!
