I was talking with a friend who had
recently been through an experience with spiritual aspects to
it. As she came out the other side of things she was a bit hard
on herself. This friend is really just coming to understand
her own journey and her comment to me about having missed seeing
some things along the way for what they were was: For
an intelligent person I can be so dumb at times, eh? She
It got me thinking though
how many times we say that type of thing to ourselves
duh moments we all have. I knew if I let it go she's
be adding another block as a brick in a wall somewhere too if
we didn't take it further. I didn't want to spill at her, so
our conversation went on and some of the things I was pointing
out to her seemed appropriate to be shared here as well.
Hopefully this article will help
some of our community members that struggle with grasping their
guidance. I hope it helps them to know whats what as they
strive to grow. So heres the main point of our conversation
in a condensed form.
First of all, my friend wasnt
dumb, and I pointed out to her that she was just learning to
decipher and discern the soft voice of the spiritual
presents in such simple terms
but we have to look, listen,
sense in the soft ways, diffusing the physical reality. We are
coming into a more abstract language that keeps things simple
in the sense that it is something like were
being show. I explained that what were shown is in our
code what the symbols mean to us is more than what the
they provide the flashlights we need to
dig and find what the symbols mean to us.
Once we understand our softer internal
symbols we can run with our guidance. She was just grabbing
onto that fact and see that those who are seasoned on their
paths understand their guidance
they went through the
same process. Its that process that seemed important to
share with the Spirit Lodge community so here you go. It would
be great if some of our seasoned pathwalkers want to share their
own experiences in this thread too.
We all come to things a bit differently.
I always say a Star is a good example of symbology and variations
of it. To one person it speaks of the universe, the vastness
of space and infinite abstract concepts. To another it will
speak of the feminine receptivity of the night, that energy
and all it holds, the essence of the calm and its beauty
for the eye to behold. To another it is all about awe and wonderment,
the wishes we make on shooting stars, the hopes of the heart,
the possibilities. To still another it means success, achievement,
perhaps fame and fortune as in renown for wealth and accomplishment,
or for stardom itself
Whatever that Star represents to
you is more than the universal meaning of the word but the universal
will help you get started on finding it. Youll know, for
instance if a message comes to tell told you that a star shines
for you and it likely meant something big
what that was immediately (say you were in a contest
big would be 1st, 2nd, 3rd place in that contest
star would indicate its likely 1st place so youd
know what to reach for.) It directly relates to an immediate
issue in most initial receptions. The universal meaning alters
at that point. Or if you are
looking for guidance a shooting star might indicate you would
receive it...and to watch for signs...those coincidences in
Its how we learn to interpret
guidance, trust it, follow it. When we do it grows stronger
and even clearer
like a muscle that hasnt been used
in awhile, it needs to be built up and find its full strength.
If you let it go again it will take some exercise before it
is at full capacity, probably less than the first time but it
takes attention to get it there all the same.
The senses we have are our radar,
but we have to tune in and turn them on with a soft
eye and ear when we read them. Theyre subtle at first.
When we learn to recognize the different voices
they speak to us with, the different languages and impressions
they make on us, we can define which sense, what element, what
form of guidance is coming in. (Provided we're studying the
elemental forces too. *S*)
It's a lot like knowing a radio station
well. Most people look to learn about spirituality with the
hard eye and ear
the sharp eye and ear. They strain in
the physical sense to see the spiritual, but it's not like that.
It takes the soft side to connect and they dont know how
to soften themselves, they think its being vulnerable
to ridicule for weakness in the eyes of others, its childish
nonsense isnt it? Or is it?
We think were dumb because
we dont get it, but thats only because
we dont know how to soften ourselves to it in the first
place. Were learning through experience to tune into it.
Youve always done it, but consciously recognizing it for
what it is takes some serious focus and serious softening to
see and hear
we have to soften to get through the veil.
I like the analogy of reading a
book in a lunchroom, you tune out of one environment (the lunch
room) by softening the eye and ear to it and step into another
(the book) and sharpening the eye and ear where youre
focused. We have to soften, step, and refocus. If theres
disturbance to the energy of the lunchroom youll snap
back and check it, if its minor and of no effect on you
then you go back to the book. If theres danger you put
the book away and get back to that later while avoiding the
chaos around you. Same principle
shifting focus where its
needed with an eye or ear to the other environment (dimension).
Recognizing when to do this is the trick and we learn how as
its normal to have to figure that
Recognizing the difference is the
trick though and most people dont know how to go about
it and when they do find out they wonder if its an overactive
imagination at play with them. It takes trusting the process,
watching for things to manifest, to know whats what but
they have to remember to watch for these things.
When we start looking for signs they
appear, we see them and the more we watch the more we see
soon theyre everywhere. Why? Because we opened ourself
to see the softer side, the breeze that tosses our hair and
catches our eye at a significant signpost with just the right
message we needed for inspiration.
When we trust enough to see what
happens next with a cautious eye we find the experiences we
have certainly do match up to what we were shown. Its
easy then to say its coincidence. But its more
than that and if we watch our coincidences we start to see where
our guidance is active, how it plays into our own life (our
unique way of receiving the communication
there are main
characteristics to this but were all a bit different too
of like this for me and that for you but along similar
lines if you know what I mean.) and where we can go with
it from there. We can start taking stitches to connect the dots.
We need to learn to learn to trust
it too, not to second-guess and dismiss what we pick up on but
to watch for it playing out instead. Thats the Dream were
the bits and pieces that come together slowly over
a lifetime...and sometimes we see into the Dreamscape of others,
more bits and pieces, and we weave our threads this way.
When we can see the vision, trust
it, follow guidance, we see it unfold and manifest results and
we Weave our Dream. We can choose to be the one Dreamed by ignoring
these things--our inner spirit is the Dreamer trying to share
that vision with usor we can choose union spiritually,
raise our conscious awareness to look for these things, and
thus become the Dream. We can weave it then and we can see how
we use the energy, how it co-creates with us, how Spirit moves
through our life.
Spirit is energy
energy and energy contains information
when we tap our
spirit we link to Spirit then and were into the cosmic
the collective consciousness
Energy carries that information to us. But we have to go to
our own center to find that...it's 'in' us that we make that
connection and project outward from there.
Its there in the Source Energy
because it is the permeation of All
all things, all thought,
all knowledge, all of life. Opening to the soft side of the
sensory impressions is where it starts, exploring them by watching
what plays out helps us define things, and soon were able
to test and trust what we find. We then open our channel wide
and find we have constant guidance to work with at all times.
It takes some time, we need to be
patient, but softening ourselves is the start. We have to slip
into the Dreamweave to do that
the daydreaming state where
visions come forward and inspiration touches us
focus. Try it and see what happens. Feel free to share your
own experiences with us too.
