Have you ever asked for understanding from a God/ess with conviction?
Do you believe that the reason so many turn to a higher power, is because they limit who they ask for understanding from? Basically asking for an answer with such conviction that their minds may be making them see what they want to believe?
(note: I'm not trying to be rude, I just want a better understanding of this from a personal view point. If you find this offensive, I'm sorry. You can pm me about it, but please keep it out of this post, I want to keep this civilized. Thank you.)

I'm Agnostic right now. I dont necessarily believe in God, but I believe in some sort of higher power. I think I am questioning a lot because my husband believes pretty much everything in the Bible, and I see things from a scholarly standpoint, being that, early literature was written about the same time as the Old Testament, and there are so many similarites. I think that its extremely strange that every single religion has a Savior that is comparable to Jesus, and I also feel that there is so much SCIENCE in the world. Proof of why things happen how they do, and I believe in Evolution. I also am a huge supporter of the Gay and Lesbian community and dont understand a religion that would not include them. Religion seems to be a downfall in the world to me, as it causes greed, and wars and such. Its a source of corruption.

I'm not sure I'm understanding your question correctly, it's been a long day and I'm tired, so I hope my answer makes sense.
My spiritual path is difficult to define and is one that is always evolving, which is great with me. I feel that spiritual growth and learning is an on-going process and, for me, adds to the joys of life. Personally, I feel that the times when people turn to a higher power for answers, they are actually turning toward their own wisdom, their soul wisdom, or the higher power that is within them. Again, I hope that makes sense.

To be honest, when I ask the Goddess for anything it's simply for guidance to an answer, a direction to where I may find that answer, such as in my cards, in my dreams, my meditations and without fail it comes to me. I don't need them (Goddess-Gods) to prove themselves to me, bc I know that they are there when I need an ear, or need to vent or for their guidance.
