Mystic: Someone who experiences a direct connection to the Divine.
The Everyday Mystic is a blog about how to incorporate experiences of the Divine in everyday life.
December 22, 2007
Welcome to The Everyday Mystic! I’m delighted to have this opportunity to share this blog with you, and that you came to visit with me. My goal is to write 3-4 times per week for a year and see what happens.
This blog serves two purposes: 1) to share my spiritual journey with you so you may find courage and inspiration on your journey and 2) to develop my voice and my spiritual awareness. I hope that I might touch your heart, and maybe even make you smile once in a while. And, I will be writing for myself, writing about the things that I want to increase or improve in my life.
I am just an ordinary person who seeks to deepen her understanding of her spiritual path. I am in my early 50’s and have been married for over 26 years to a wonderful man who is my best friend. We have two teenage children, ages 16 and 18, and a miniature poodle who rules the house. I have been a consultant and trainer for the past 10 years in the area of technical services (www.krconsulting.com). I was raised in a liberal Christian family that was intensely involved in our Methodist church. As a teenager, I was at church at least three times a week, participating in youth choir, Methodist Youth Fellowship (MYF, for those of you who remember) and Sunday School. I went to college as a music major and met my husband, who is a professional musician, in Boston. Soon after we were married, I starting attending church again after a college-induced hiatus from any religious affiliation. My husband is Jewish, so I went to church alone for the first several years of our marriage. We now are active in a Unitarian Universalist church where our whole family feels comfortable.
I am taking a sabbatical right now to study, pray, meditate and figure out what I’m going to do when I grow up! Part of that discernment process is writing this blog.
(Please note that Kristin’s sabbatical officially ended on March 1, 2008. You can read about what she learned in her post at http://kristinrobertson.com/fallow-fields-reap-rewards.htm)
Thank you for sharing in this journey.
God of many names, I dedicate this blog to you. May my words touch other’s hearts and souls, may they encourage others to persist on their spiritual paths, may I strengthen my dedication to walking with You hand-in-hand. Amen.
