Hi Rastus,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing some of your deep personal experiences.

Difficult one – deciding whether or not to start to come out in terms of ones spiritual life with loved ones and friends!

I made that decision several years ago, and bless fully it was a good one.  I was lucky as most of them were very accepting! But then each of our circumstances are different!

When the time is right… but try to start of gentle perhaps when you do! A good example might be to quote part of the book, or perhaps something less esoteric like say to her you have been reading an interesting story about a healing success, and add that you feel empathy of have a resonance with some of the ideas were expressed in it!

In other words pose leading questions if you will! My approach was much more direct, and I know I rocked a few boats – so in retrospect I may have taken a different tack, but certainly do not have any regrets!

Now it is funny - as on occasion some of my old friends have approached me about healing and other spiritual issues for advice!

Hope this helps?

Best wishes,



Stephen [Smiley]

Thank you for the responce.

Had a break through last night!!!  My wife was was in an altered state, and we were watching some TV in bed.  She reached over to hold my hand.  After a few seconds she said my fingers were tingling.  They were, I was meditating fairly deeply.  I said "Well good, they are supposed to, give me your other hand" and I proceeded to to channel energy into her hands.  Her responce was "what are you doing?HuhHuhHuh" she could most definately feel it!  I stroked her face (something she likes) and I watched her toes curl [:I]  I couldn't make myself tell her to open her eyes, my hand was 3 inches above her face.

She has most definately noticed the changes in me since I've made it back into the light.  I've conspicously left a Wiccan book on Physic healing laying around the bedroom.  I don't think it's going to be an issue, she's into Native American culture, so something along these lines shouldn't be much of a shock.

Greetings All,

I'm currently re-centering after some life altering events.

I'm nearly 40.  In my teens I was a virtual Energy machine, including easily demonstratable physchokinesis.  Remeber, no Internet at that time, all I had was an original Frost publication to work from, then a more lay-book somewhat later.  Somewhere around college, between a long distance relationship, beer, and well college, I went numb.  I also was clinically depressed.  Basically I lived in the dark, with brief periods back in the light(I'm a healer).  I still dabbled, but never practiced and excercised.

18 months ago my marriage (of 15 years at the time) hit a low point, and my teenage son was failing all his classes.  I was what you could call Metaphysically broken.  My wife and I worked things out, but I was still clinically depressed.

6 months ago I went on Anti-Depressants (I know I know).  Paxil makes you quite numb between the eyes, so to speak.  WellButrin made me very agressive and kept me from sleeping.  My wife came back from seeing her mother, and didn't rcognize me on Remoran.  Enter Effexor.  A few weeks of Effexor allowed me to 'get out of the dark' long enough to re-center.  I aliken it to jump-starting a car.

So now I'm off anti-depressents.  I wish the Internet was around when I was younger, so much information!  I'm working hard to re-center myself after 20+ years of abuse and neglect.  Being older definately helps, more confidence (I do have successes) I suppose.  The biggest thing that cheared me up was reading up on OOBE.  For the longest time I assumed OOBE was the "classic" ghostlike walking around your own house.  Whooeeee.  I'm an active lucid dreamer.  I know I'm dreaming a good 30% of the time?  At least an experience every other night.  That heartened me enough to get off the Anti-Depressants!!!  And last night I did some directed dreaming on a specific issue [Wink]

Now how do I explain all this to my wife.  She noted I was reading a book on Self-Healing(Wiccan version), and I told her it was an alternative to Classic Depression treatments.  I don't want to lie to her, but I don't want to "freak her out" either.  Suggestions?
