Coming out of the Spiritual Closet

I’m a deeply spiritual person, but sometimes I pretend I’m not. I used to pretend when I was at networking events full of lawyers and judges for the non-profit organization I worked for. And recently I realized that I was pretending not to be spiritual on social media and with you, my newsletter community.

It’s funny because many of my clients love working with me because I’m deeply spiritual. They’ll say, “You’re the only mental health professional I could share this with,” and then share some deep spiritual insight from their life.

And yet, I was hiding.

And I guess that I’m learning that adulthood is coming out of a series of closets. And then staying out.

For me identifying as both queer (pansexual) and spiritual, I feel like I’ve come out of the closet before with both of these identifies. But then I go back in.

These patterns of hiding are deep. They stem from childhood, they stem from it not being safe for me to be fully myself.

So I’m here today to come out of the spiritual closet yet again. I’m here to own that I’m deeply spiritual, to own that I make every decision for my business and basically every decision ever through meditation and prayer.

And I want to support you to be authentically yourself too. Maybe you’re queer and spiritual like me or maybe you’re a video game nerd who is obsessed with My Little Pony. You get to be who you are. And for many of you it’s safer now, to truly be yourself. So bring all of you.

And if you’re woo woo like me and want me to pull you a Goddess Guidance Card for some area of your life, hit Reply. I’d absolutely love to!

Sending you supportive energy to embrace all parts of you.
