Hello! My name is Alistine (Iseke in the forums). I am a 30 something pagan spiritualist from Arizona, Colorado, and California. I love crystals, coffee, and craft beer.
Aelestrid is my spiritual home–a place to examine my experiences and share them with others. I am learning and trying to understand our deeper reality, and this is something I’ve been interested in doing my whole life. I write on reincarnation, crystals and crystal healing, consciousness and astral projection, twin souls and soul connections, orgonite, and self development. It is also a place to share my thoughts as a practitioner and as a person. I don’t believe the purpose of being spiritual is to discard one’s expression of personality but to understand and embrace who you are and the story you are living in.
Although I’ve always been drawn to the mystical and our unseen reality, I started my path in earnest after some deep feelings led me to seek the spiritual guidance of others. The guidance I received led me to understand that my feelings corresponded to something I was only just beginning to remember: who I am and what’s in the universe. What I am spiritually is hard to define, because spirituality is unique to all of us. So really, I’m just here to explore.
I also want to infuse spirituality with rationality and reason. It’s too easy to get caught up in ideas or possibilities without being grounded enough to see how they apply in the real world. My spiritual practice has always been focused on the tangible and the practical as well as the esoteric. I want to challenge assumptions and offer alternative points of view while at the same time examining these ideas thoroughly. I intend to walk the path between believers and nonbelievers and find a way to bridge communication between the two.
If you are here, I hope it’s to ask, to explore, to engage with your higher purpose, to take part in larger conversations about who and what we are. I didn’t come to any of this overnight. It’s what I’ve learned and what I’ve shared along the way.
All opinions expressed are solely mine and are based on my personal experiences.
