Why I wish to join The Temple & how I found out about it...
I have a few different reasons for wanting to join. First, and foremost, I am secure in my faith and veneration of the ancient Mother Goddess in her many forms. That said, I long for a community like The Temple where like minded individuals can come together in peace and love to explore the many paths to the divine. I will not beat around the bush. I suffered years of complex ritual abuse in my early childhood. I remember very, very little of the brainwashing, double binds, I'll save the gory details. I only mention that to punctuate this statement. I was visited by the Mother goddess in a waking dream when I was about 6 years old. I have come to understand just why She came to me that night. In short, I was offered the chance to follow my heart and souls true path. I was called to be a "Wounded Healer". There is so, so much more but I will expound upon request, I am just trying to save you some time.
About Myself & My Interests..
I am not very good at talking about myself but I will do my best. I am a transsexual female who has been on hormone therapy for 1 year now. It took months of testing but I was finally diagnosed with gender dysphoria which allowed me to begin HRT. I am a student of Social Work and psychology. I am a very big believer in the Jungian school of psychology. His archetypes are what led me to the understanding of what a wounded healer is. Of the 16 personality types I am an INFP. I am a flower child - hippie chic at heart who needs guidance in her spiritual path. It may sound cheesy but one of my main interests lies in the altruistic pursuit to ease pain and suffering wherever it appears, if it pleases Her for me to do so. I am a musician, artist... basically the creative, music loving type.
My Teachers & Influences, What was it about them that influenced me?
There have been many influences who have come into my life, made a positive impact and then followed the winds of change down the winding road of memory. In complete honesty the brilliant sages who instructed me on the do's and dont's when it comes to treating people correct and the difference between right and wrong would be my Mom, her two sisters and my Grandma and grandpa. My parents were hippies of the 60's and they raised me to always judge someone on their actions, not their appearance. It seems so simple when I write it down in such a quick and dirty way but I would need to write a novel in order to account for all the life's lessons they have taught me.
Authors and/or Books I appreciate
Lynn Picknett, Graham Hancock, Manly P. Hall, Carl Jung...
Musicians and/or Music I appreciate
I have a wide range in tastes of musical genres. Truth be told it was in the craziness of the mid 80s and I was around 16 when I first actually listened to the The Grateful Dead. I have been "Dead to the core" ever since.
Films and/or Film-Makers & Actors I appreciate
Artists and/or Art I appreciate
I am a graphic artist with a love for all forms of expression. That said, I am drawn to the renaissance period paintings. The hidden esoteric symbolism amidst such masterpieces dedicated to and in veneration of the God of the Abrahamic religions.
