This past weekend I had a booth at the Sacramento Holistic Living Expo and had a wonderful time and met many people. One man stayed in my awareness as he spent quite a bit of time at my booth talking with me. He explained that he was a skeptic and didn’t believe that putting oil on oneself and doing many of the other things available would change anything. His concern was with the larger picture of humanity and government and that people aren’t paying attention to what is going on. This man was from a small European country with knowledge of past atrocities there.
I looked up skeptic in Wiktionary and this is the definition they gave:
1. Someone who habitually doubts beliefs and claims presented as accepted by others, requiring strong evidence before accepting any belief or claim.
2. Someone undecided as to what is true.
3. A type of agnostic.
We chatted and I told him that for myself, I like a skeptic as they are open to new information and ways of being. I also told him that in addition to the spiritual practices that I do with meditation and Light work, I also write letters, send emails, talk with people, and take action on all levels for things I believe in or want to change. He liked this.
I am a skeptic about politicians, about the manner in which the governments operate, about news programs, about diets, cosmetics, and any number of things.
It seems to me a part of all of us is a skeptic as we want our own personal experience in order for us to genuinely believe. This is such a beautiful way to be as it opens me up to have each moment bring me something new and fresh while having what I presently believe support me until I find evidence of and experience the new.
I am not a skeptic about Spirit. My two near death experiences gave me direct contact with the Pure Light and Love of Spirit and the immensity of All That Is.
Reggie is a skeptic about some animals and people he meets. He senses when they are not one he wants around, growls, and can be aggressive if they move toward him or me. I trust his judgment completely as he has senses that are beyond most peoples. Reggie sees Spirits in our home and will be sitting by me on the sofa looking intently into space connecting in his own way. He is not a skeptic about Spirit either. Nancy and Reggie♥
