I'm a spiritualist and am open about my religion so often talk to others about it. Not to push it on people just if we get talking about beliefs etc.. then I say mine. It's amazing to hear what people think though. Even dp who's been with me almost 3 years didn't know we believe in God To be fair I don't talk about it that much with him as he's not really interested. That's fine by me though.
Hi - I am a spiritualist and like you have been surprised over people's reactions. Do you go to a church? I have been to a couple round our way, both have totally different vibes. i am also a medium/ clairvoyant, so have had my values 'tested' by many a parent in the playground, esp as my kids go to a c of e school. Spiritulism is something I have grown with over the past 15 years, my faith is ever-strengthening and I feel blessed by it.
