I haven’t posted much, so I hope this topic is okay. I recently have discovered that EA was adopted by an LDS family when he was young. As someone who grew up in a Mormon family, I’m really curious about his ideas on the subject.
I have searched these forums and have read many interesting things, but I may have missed if anyone has spoken of patriarchal blessings. Personally, I never had one given or done for me, but it seems like a form of channeling. Am I way off base here?
My Mother’s blessing, for instance, prophesied the last days and her part in it. I, apparently, was also mentioned in it, but she won’t share the whole blessing, which I can respect of course, because it seems deeply personal. But, I was told the story of my birth growing up a lot and how I almost died (choking on umbilical cord, emergency c-section), and some spooky shenanigans that happened in the background which her blessing apparently touched on before I was born as well.
I’m really curious as to any others experience with patriarchal blessings or opinions thereof.
