Welcome to the forum Amber :) that's great that you plan on expanding your herbal knowledge and start gardening. A koi pond sounds lovely!

I agree with Drac and C_A. Rule out the mundane when it comes to your headache. If you had it before you entered, it could have just gotten worse from even the lighting in the store, dust (if they dust regularly), even air freshener combined with mental. Many a times I've had a headache that became worse from air fresheners. I highly doubt the owners of the store would try to hurt pagans with prayers for the Christian God to make anyone pagan that enters ill. Heck, they would WANT you to enter and learn about their god, not run you away with a headache. I've gone to church with my family on several occasions. I've always been uncomfortable in churches since they weren't my "thing", but never felt sick or anything. I just focused on honoring and speaking to gods.

1) Go ahead if it makes you feel at ease
2) Agree with C_A, Definitely work on shielding.

I dunno, Alc.  I have heard of that more often than some of the others.  Largely to align with the secular calendar change and seem less out-of-sync with "everybody else".

...I thought it was a mental thing...

...So I mentioned it to a group of Pagans I converse with and it's not just me.. I was advised to get the heck out of dodge, and as soon as I got home do a cleansing and if I ever need to walk on Jesus Turf again, protect myself first.

One woman explained it well in my opinion.. the Christian God is the God of Jealousy and because I worship multiple Gods (and specifically choose to exclude Him), He got upset and just likes messing with me and my kin if we enter his turf.

So I would like to know about..
1. Cleansing.
2. Protection.
Specifically involving Jesus and his Father..

Could have been physical, as well.  Sometimes a headache takes a while to peak.  Add in some stress, (or even an air-freshener!), and you have a recipe for extreme symptoms.

As was said, you were given some really bad info.  Oh, I've heard it all from various pagans and even atheists over the years.  Jesus came to settle things, once and for all, between His dad and humanity.  The "jealous angry G-d" bit was done away with.  The other part, the bit about it being "His turf", their view it's ALL "His turf".  Many, many, MANY pagans of various stripes enter churches on occasion for such things as weddings and funerals.  They come out just fine.  Why would "He" pick on you in a bookstore?

So "A", go ahead if it makes you feel better.
"B", ditto.  But you should work on shielding from everything, all the time, any road.

I'm a mother, housewife, just turned 44 at the beginning of this month (July 2014).
I grew up loosely Christian. I was a Missionette for a couple years in my early teens and went more or less agnostic by the end of my teens. I found Wicca around the time I turned 19 and worked a dedication by the time I was 21. From there its been a slow movement towards a general Eclectic Pagan Spiritualism mostly because I couldn't solidify my ideas of deity or be as religiously ritualistic as it calls for.

I enjoy Tarot, astrology, spellcrafting, and reading. I  just moved onto a 3 acre lot, my new home, and intend to start gardening and expanding herbal knowledge. I would LOVE to make myself a sacred space here and have plans for a small koi pond and circle space if for no other reason than for somewhere to go for solitude and peace.

Anyway, that be me. ;-)

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you were sadly given mis-information. Firstly Jebus never said he was jealous; The Bible contains two books essentially, the old and the new testament. The old speaks of a jealous and anger filled god who tends to throw tantrums smiting and turning people into salt, or asking for people to sacrifice their children, and condemning those who are not with him and such. The new speaks of a loving and nurturing god full of redemption and salvation.

Secondly; you had your headache before you went into that store, and it was probably due more to the hype and excitement you were experiencing. It only grew worse because your mind was trying to calm down, but the chemicals released were still swirling about in there.

It may have been a Christian bookstore, but it's just a bookstore after all. We as Pagans are an accepting people of others beliefs and other religions, so simply allow things like that to wash over you. Once you can overlook that kind of thing, it feels much better.

BTW, glad you enjoyed the mediaeval adventure, those can be fun....
