The biggest Enlightenment came in my spiritual life. I found a huge pull back to my faith. Not that I ever left it, but I had been talking the talk and not walking the walk. I was not LIVING my path. So, I began making changes, simple changes. Working harder to recycle, meditating and saying my blessings to the Goddess everyday, reading and learning everyday, being more vocal and active in groups, but most importantly honoring my true self. This enlightenment I had made me realize I had not been living my truth in a very long time. I was afraid to speak my truth, especially about my faith (even to other Pagans), for fear of judgement. I didn't want to hear that because I do not cast circles, or have a magical name, etc, that I was not a "true" pagan. I would find myself second guessing what I believed in my soul because someone would tell me how I was doing it wrong. My soul searching enlightenment solidified in me that faith is personal, so there is no wrong or even better.
Since this enlightenment, I have been at peace in all aspects of my life. I no longer present my false self to the world (well, not as often at least =P). I am more positive, and embracing of others. I feel more "grown up", and this has even turned me down a surprising path. I have begun looking at Ministry Programs so that I can become a Pagan Priestess and be there for other Pagans.
I am so thankful for this time in my life and the enlightenment that I have had. But I am also aware that true enlightenment is a never ending journey.
In Love and Light
Blessings to all
