Many years ago I belonged to a Ning web group that primarily discussed the struggles of being an empath, as well as many other subjects . Unfortunately the person who created the site found that it was both time and cost prohibitive so she shut it down.
I came to love that site over the years that I belonged and participated in many of the group discussions. I can not state how much I learned by actively interacting with everyone's discussions and comments about what I consider the astral spirit world. It was the first time in my life that I felt like I was at home with people who I felt belonged to, let's say, my tribe. I made lasting friendships that I still have on other social media sites. And it was fun.
The kinds of subjects that these sites cover are not your standard fare for open discussions out in what many of us refer to as the real world. I looked forward everyday to logging in to experience what people all over the world had to say about my experiences as well as my thoughts about theirs.
And this is why I find it very strange after going through the members list of this site and realizing that many of you are new here. I assume you came here for the same reasons I did both now and then. These sites are amazing at waking up your inner spirit and homing it in on what we all feel is a new age that has already begun to become a reality for those that have opened their hearts and souls to an ultimate source of light and understanding.
I'm imploring those of you who are new here, and even those of you who have belonged for many years, to become more active with this site. Together we have so much to offer each other if we just take a few minutes each day, or week, to share our experiences and offer our knowledge to a plane of existence that we all are striving to achieve. You can be a teacher and a student all at the same time!
What do you have to lose?
