Sadly, we live in a world where often God/Creator/Spirit cannot be found in the very places that say you can find them. Across all Religions, pain can be inflicted in spaces where peace, hope, renewal, and divine connection should be found.
For those who have past religious trauma and find that to be a blockage to embracing God in your life. Those old pains have become blockages to opening to a desired connection to the divine in your life. Especially if it feels like God would wish to punish you, or you have felt abandoned by Spirit.
When you want to forge your own path forward to having a relationship with Creator, on your terms. When you want the presence and connection in your life that is intimate, not rules that do not make sense. No matter who you are, you are infinitely loved by Creator and are worthy of that relationship.
