I have clients that are agnostics, Jews, Muslims, Protestants, Baptists, Christians, Catholics, and any blend. I always start where THEY are.
I was taught early on that you never take away the faith that someone has. If you do, and they do not embrace your beliefs for themselves, then you leave them with nothing… and that is truly an experience of the misery of hell on earth.
I ask where someone is in faith and spirituality, and then I talk with them based on their belief system so as not to distract from the intention of healing.
If there is One God and One Holy Spirit, then I believe that it matters not what we call the One, but that we respond to the call of the One.
