“The life I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place my touch will be felt.” ~ Hippie Peace Freaks, Facebook
About A Seraph’s Quill:
The purpose of this blog is to let others who find themselves on a spiritual path – whether they are just starting upon their journey or have been on it for many years – that no matter how lonely it may seem, they are not alone.
Readers of A Seraph’s Quill will find posts from Dawna as well as Nya. Both names are attributed to the same person.
Posts from Dawna will generally be of a “mundane”/everyday nature. However, they will situations in which the author searches to find the spiritual, the magical in everyday life. These posts will often include “tips and tricks” that Dawna’s mentors passed along to her over the years as well as pearls of wisdom she has collected on her own.
While posts from Nya will be more… “woo woo”. At times, they will ask readers to have an open mind and stretch their imaginations. Anything is possible in this wonderful and mysterious universe of ours. Much of what we believe or even know is but a single drop of water in the vast ocean of space.
In “mundane”, “everyday life”, I’m known as Dawna, a 40-something mom to three beautiful children. My eldest (BB) is 24, my eldest daughter (PB) is 21, and my youngest daughter (LB) is 12.
I’m even a nana! LM will be 3 this year.
I’ve been married to DH for almost 30 years now. (Hard to believe!) And most of that time, we were a military family. Fortunately, he retired in 2013. (It was time!)
My interests include reading, writing, blogging, dancing, and photography. I’m something of a gadget girl, too. Or at least according to DH. I like crocheting, crafting, and mixed media art too.
In some “spiritual” circles, I’m known as Ny’Raia or Nya. I serve as a healer and a teacher. I was ordained as a minister with Unified Trinity Church on the 8th of April 2018 and am attuned as an Usui Reiki Master Teacher and certified as an Emerald Star Healing Practitioner.
I consciously embarked upon my own spiritual journey in the fall of 2000. (At least, I think that’s when it was. It’s been a LONG time.) I “received inspiration” about a character I was working on for a work of fiction. She was a follower of “the Old Ways”, I was told, but had absolutely no idea what those were, but as I researched, I resonated with them.
Since then, my path has led me on a series of twists and turns until my spiritual beliefs and practices quite resemble a menu at a Chinese restaurant. “A little from column A, a wee bit from column B, and a smidge from column C.”
And it continues to evolve! Tomorrow, it might not remotely resemble what it appears to be today.
Is my way the only way? Is my “answer” the “final answer” in spirituality?
Most certainly not!
Everyone’s spiritual journey is individualistic. I know this. Over time, the path we tread may be similar in some ways and vary greatly in others. We all come from many different places, many different situations, and where each of us is headed is just as different, but many of the emotions we experience along the way are the same. And, in my experience, this journey can sometimes be a lonely one. Especially when it feels as though the masses are going one way, while we’re headed another.
I just want readers to know that they are not alone, that they have someone “in their corner”, rooting for them as they tackle the difficult challenges that we sometimes face on this Journey.
We’ve got this!
