Hi from Nova Scotia

Post by Navjeet Mackie » Thu Nov 26, 2015 1:38 am

Hi everyone,
I just heard about this forum in one of Jesus and Mary's recent videos (with Eloisa and Peter) and was very excited to come and explore it. I am surprisingly nervous about writing here, which is interesting. I'm guessing it's because I have been able to watch and learn about Divine Truth without much conversation or feedback for two years, but now it's time to get out there and perhaps receive some personal truth. I admit that I thought I was excited about receiving personal truth, however, being nervous shows that there is some fear in there.
Thank you Nicki for putting all of this together.
I should also mention that my birth/given name is Lisa, however I go by Navjeet now. Navjeet is a name given to me through Kundalini yoga, and I still use the name. Most people only know me as Navjeet now.
I haven't had a chance to read anything yet on the forum. I just wanted to give an introduction of myself.
Thank you.
Navjeet

Hi again,

After reading some other intros, I realize I really didn't say much about myself and how I got here, so I thought I would jump back on to do that.

I grew up in a household that was not religious or spiritual. My mother took us to church when we were young, but left when she noticed that what people said and what people did were not the same. After that we did talk about God a little, but she pretty much gave up on anything remotely spiritual. I grew up with mostly a "scientific" view of the world, and didn't really question much until near the end of my university career. I started feeling like life was empty, so I feel I made my first attempt at praying to God at that point (around the year 2000), which basically went like "God, if you exist - what's the point of all this God? If there is anything more to life than this, please show me!". My life pretty much "fell apart" after that (at least it felt like that, emotions were very scary for me). I started having panic and anxiety attacks. I couldn't function. I continued to pray, even though I didn't even really believe anyone was listening....it was more wishful thinking as I didn't have much faith. I am still working on my faith.
After that first prayer I ended up doing some traveling. I was definitely searching, but I had no idea what I was searching for. It was around this point that I found Kundalini yoga. It was the first time anything spiritual was really introduced to me, and I dove in head first. I woke up at 4am to do yoga and meditate. I started having experiences (which I realize now were probably spirit influenced). As I continued in yoga I truly started to believe that God might actually exist. I started praying every day for God's truth and did less yoga. But I started to feel that something was missing, I felt that a lot of what I had been taught through yoga wasn't truth, but I had no idea how to find truth.

When I got pregnant four and a half years ago, and then again two and a half years ago, I stopped doing yoga, and pretty much stopped doing everything except being a Mom. Around 2 years ago I felt pretty lost and started looking for God again, on the internet (really, I did). I started watching near death experiences and anything that was "uplifting" and somewhat "spiritual". Somehow I came across Divine Truth through all of this. The video that popped up was titled "Man in Australia thinks he's Jesus" or something like that. It was a TV show that was extremely inaccurate about Divine Truth. It was pretty obvious that the show was full of lies, so I was inspired to check it out for myself. And that is how my journey with Divine Truth began. The teachings and the personal journey have been both amazing and confronting, but I feel I have found the biggest gift in the world. Thank you Jesus and Mary! And thank you again Nicki for creating a new avenue for all of us to learn more.
I know I still have a lot of work to do, but I feel like I am making some progress.

With Love,
Navjeet

Hello Navjeet,
I felt touched by both your introductions and a bit of the similarities we have in coming to Divine Truth.
I was in the New Age movement for about 25 years. I read about Buddhism, Abraham Hicks, Science of Mind, A Course in Miracles and so much more. I also did yoga frequently and am a Reiki Master. I was intrenched but in all my searching and bouncing around from one belief to another and picking and choosing what I would believe - I was left with no sense of peace in my life. And still so many unanswered questions.
I was raised in a loosely Christian home and now I feel very fortunate for that. Because in all my wandering the one scripture from the Bible that always was ever present was - seek ye first the Kingdom and it's righteousness and all else will be added unto thee. So like you I started asking questions of God - if there really was one - and stumbled upon a website that led me to Divine Truth. Truth will come when you are ready.
I've only been listening/following for less than two years and feel like I am making progress. A lot of that time has been spent recognizing the false believes - especially about God. I have many fears to work through - I also had panic and anxiety attacks for years. I made my life "safe" and now must undo my purposeful construction. I know on this path we will feel fear - but we must not make it our master.
I am glad you choose to join the forum and I wish you truth.
Love to you,
Laura
