I wanted to address something
that keeps coming up here from time to time as to how to "know"
you are on the right path, getting confirmation on spiritual
levels, and communicating with your Inner Spirit, Guides and
I've touched on a lot of these issues
and we've all discussed it, but working with a client of mine
I had to put it in that proverbial nutshell today. Seeing it
all written out made me think of how many people here in the
community might make use of that picture and expedite their
own journeys. So I share with you now. :paw :paw :paw :paw Please
The feelings we experience, the
sensations, emotions, thoughts, and perceptions are all voices.
A new language or one you've taken for granted or perhaps even
chosen to ignore, it is critical to spiritual understanding.
We are so often told the answers to all our deep questions are
within us. They are. But not always as instant understanding
because we're looking for them as we hunt and explore in the
physical reality. This is different. While those skills remain
a part of the process, the tools shift.
Initially there is a sense of awkwardness
about it, a sense of needing to second guess ourselves or attribute
what we are perceiving to be imagination gone wildly vivid.
The TRUTH of the matter is that we need to learn to TRUST our
impressions and as we de we find they are manifesting validations
over time. Little by little that level of trust begins to grow
and that's how we come to "know" the things we do.
Psychic ability or extrasensory perceptions (ESP) is merely
expanding the senses that extra mile and using them like radar
to read a situation or issue.
As we experience things in life
and encounter new experiences the sensations of past lessons
arise to warn us of things we need to be aware of. This, if
ignored or discounted, creates an atmosphere of fear surrounding
you that must be pushed through to get to the clarity of the
issue and allow those fears to dissolve. That begins with you...trusting
your Self...your Inner Self, and your Guides.
You need to take note of them as
your Inner Spirit or your own Guides speaking to you. That's
how they move through us. When I'm doing a reading for someone
and they want to impress me with an issue or truth they'll send
waves of sensation through me and I literally "feel"
the situation. We all have Guides and I'd love for you to connect
with yours. Trusting the sensations or impressions you have
is the first step. It opens the door so to speak and it allows
that voice to grow louder.
Eventually you'll start seeing visions
or images; hearing either internally/telepathically or externally/a
soft to firm voice. Once that begins you're really on your way
to some very beneficial insights into areas of your life as
you need them.
Our Guides are with us at all times
and communicate in this way with our Inner Spirit so that the
message comes through it to us and it uses the senses and emotions
to speak. Most often people feel it and attribute that to "intuition"
but that's only a term, the reality is that it's our link to
the spiritual realms and by
trusting what rises up within us we learn our way to entering
them. It's like an internal bridge.
Anyway, most often people experience
their links in dreams first. One's higher self, speaking to
another's higher self; introductions to our Guides and Spirit
Helpers, messages from spirit coming through. Why? Because in
the dream state the logical mind (trapped in the perspective
of the physical reality and limited to accepting that) does
not expect things to be relative to the physical reality there
and so it does not argue what happens. It doesn't cloud our
judgement or our perceptions.
Another reason is that because the
mind is relaxed and not "on guard" our Spirit Helpers
can explore our mind using the symbology we relate to as a means
of conveying important messages or drawing our attention to
issues we need to examine. They "get through to us".
What do you do with that? Well you
tear it apart and assimilate the symbolic meanings, the actions
and scenarios that tell us things. Validation is not always
ours to witness but when you know there's no doubt and over
time we have enough validations along the way to know we can
trust ourselves for the truth.
Learn to read your Dreams. Those
feelings and sensations are a familiar/similar experience to
what you are passing through now and in that you hear the voice
when they rise up. You'll know deep inside when there is something
deceiving you, or when something is going to happen, or when
you are being given insight into a matter.
Interacting on a spiritual level
with others you know in life can come in the dream state, on
journeys, or in many other manifestations. It's a "feeling"
of that person's presence around you, an energy signature, and
you know who's there because you feel them. Sometimes it's quite
clear and you can see them but you know.
If it feels like Mom it is Mom. You
see? When we Dream someone we initially "feel" their
presence. It's like you are sitting at the computer and a family
member comes softly up behind you, you know it's them, you don't
have to turn around, if it were anyone else you'd know it wasn't
a family member too. You'd know who was there by the presence
of their energy signature. You just feel them because they are
familiar to you and you know them intimately on some level,
they let you into intimate space because of your relationship
with them (their auric field) and that sense is familiar enough
to you that you read them as present. It's the same with our
Guides, Totems and other Spirit Helpers once we get to know
them. You simply know their touch.
Think about it what I'm saying here
and you'll know your senses are right on the nose. Work with
it, be conscious of it in your daily life too. Assimilate this
knowledge and practice with it so you can allow your inner knowing
to gain a stronger voice and learn to trust what it's telling
In life and experience we must explore
them (consciously or not so it may as well be conscious choice)
through the Seven Sacred Directions and sense those experiences
through the elemental forces present within us: Air/Mind and
Conception, Fire/Trust and Exploration, Water/Emotion and
Relationships, Earth/Heart and Foundation to get to the unified
understanding of the whole experience.
In this way we go through a form
of alignment. Through passage and experiences with those energies
it balances you. It allows you to know your truths and thus
your reality and embrace them. It gives you permission to work
with your Self and thus become that Spiritual Warrior we all
hear so much about. With this in mind think of the things you've
felt on a much more subtle level until now. See how they are
revealing those truths and validating your feelings.
Deja Vu experiences are a reflection
of spiritual events that have taken place. We Dream our life
first and then we live it. We are the Dreamers that become our
Dreams. Let me share a little chant with you that you may want
to experience before going to sleep at night. Sing-song it like
a lullaby. The spiraling into the center of the shield is going
Spiraling into the center, the center
of my shield.
Spiraling into the center, the center of my shield.
I am the Weaver, I am the Woven One.
I am the Dreamer, I am the Dream.
I am the Weaver, I am the Woven One.
I am the Dreamer, I am the Dream.
Then at that point you can focus
on the subject you want to Dream or the work you want to do
to seed your life. Try it. I think you'll like it.
Feelings of being deceived or misled
in some way are warnings. We're not to fear them, we're to use
that insight to seek deeper knowledge of the situation knowing
we can't trust in it as it appears. Often those feelings relate
to an experience in the past because it's a similar situation
and you'd recognize the truth of it. Do you see how your inner
spirit and Guides use your own knowledge and reactions to convey
messages? Only this time (or the present situation) applies
to the immediate present and the issue you are addressing.
I want to talk about disguise or
one spirit coming to you appearing to be another as this can
and does happen (though in really rare situations). You may
see or feel one image but actually know it's more akin to another
you know...it's like dressing up an energy signature. It just
doesn't feel right in appearance. Trust that. Go with what you
know and trust it. Later it will validate that truth in some
way and allow you not to be deceived.
By paying attention to sensations
and the perceptions they produce you are learning to "assimilate"
spiritually, and this is a sign of manifesting spiritual growth.
It's telling you that you are raising your conscious awareness
to attune to the spiritual. It happens in personal ways at first,
so we can see it's validations and use it to fix our own life
in some necessary way. As we get accustomed to this process
and working with it we start expanding it outwardly to "read"
other more distant relationships and eventually use it as a
second nature radar system.
The initial strain or awkwardness
of doing these things is directly related to you level of spiritual
experiences in the past. The more you trust your Self the less
strain there is. It's the strained honesty
of the moment. Your emotions being stable at that news tell
you it's okay and simply a matter of you seeing into a matter
clearly. Then with clarity and carry over of insight into the
physical reality strained issues can dissolve themselves.
You know, sometimes when we dream
it's just normal stuff being sorted out because our minds need
order. But in this type of dream it's much different. It isn't
jumbled pieces that are totally unrelated, but a strong focus
and you feel that intensity. The senses kicking in, the emotional
awareness, this tells you that the Dream is significant and
not just you watching things work out. These are things you
need to work out and you're being shown how and more or less
what to say through your Guides and/or Inner Spirit.
This is what you need to do to restore
your acceptance of the truth of the matter once and for all.
You'll be seeing that validated soon enough. But it's an acceptance
level your spirit is telling you is necessary to achieve. It's
all a process of assimilation for you. You are resolving an
emotional state, but now in a very healthy attitude and perspective...one
As we pass through the understanding
of each elemental force through experience we can use that inner
reflection to create balance in our relationships with others
through spiritual love and understanding. It cleans the picture
up and we're able to set aside emotional constraints and accept
truths. It allows you to "see" those truths, accepting
them for what they are and thus resolving your issues so you
can move on into the future that is waiting for you.
We all pass through elemental forces
as we learn our lessons, we go through mental struggles, through
passionate sensations, through emotional issues, and then we
come back to our foundations and sustenance we find in our hearts
where truths reside. It's a full circle cycle and everything
in life relates to it. Mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual
levels of understanding so we can understand the whole.
There are times the Universe orchestrates
that in your life by giving you a reason to go through certain
experiences, nudging you to explore something and through that
see illusions shattered and reality of truth emerge. Usually
that's in the School of Hard Knocks though and we learn through
trial and error what to do or what not to do. That experience,
while disguised as another, proves to be a greater journey than
you realized and the quality of your life becomes quite evident
where all relationships are concerned.
As your perspective takes the high
road, it allows you a higher form of awareness and with that
The elemental forces at play in life
and in our lives are the cycles of life we have to pass through
again and again on a daily, weekly, monthly, yearly basis in
all capacities. It's all part of the whole. See it and work
with it and you are going with the flow of that energy, your
path is less cumbersome and you easily by-pass the majority
of obstacles seeing ahead and going around them or just dealing
with them clearly and consciously through this understanding.
When you sense a need for forward motion and change it is (as
a rule) because it's coming to you soon and you will explore
that option...more than likely within the season if not the
year. Then it's time to Dance the Wheel with that need to clarify
the changes that are near. As a question and you'll
find the answer there. This is good and healthy. In this way
you don't need others to advise you, it's not needing to run
away from something, it's confronting it/fears and you'll resolve
these issues fast.
Then that forward motion will come
into being. When change comes chaos marks it. Your mind, passions,
emotions, and your very foundations enter into a state of chaos
for awhile. And that's okay. It tells you things are up in the
air as the storm stirs them and that as the dust settles and
the air clears you'll see what's coming. Some things are blown
away...they move out of our life, others re-settle themselves
and take their places. It is what it is and will be what it
We all kick and scream until we
can understand this process. Understanding brings a level of
self-control. We can't control the actions of others but we
try until we realize that the only control we have is over the
Self. Once understood we relax, we learn to read the signs around
us, we learn how the whole of life can and does communicate
things to us and we learn to trust in it.
Find your way to Spirit, cross the
bridge of doubt, find the light within you to follow, and accept
that presence as reality in your life. Walk your own path in
life with understanding instead of confusion. We all put our
lives on hold while we sort them out. Along the way we get hit
you with reality and truth, but it's the judgmental portion
that hurts and gives rise to fear of future pain. We can avoid
a lot of that just trusting in ourselves and our hearts to know
what's right for us. It may not be another's reality, truth,
or path, but it's ours and that's our responsibility.
This leads us all to understanding
and tolerance. It serves the greater whole when we take control
of ourselves and grow. We contribute then. At the foundation
of it all is Spirit's love for us and when we can see that we
have all the answers within us or the capability to find them,
we realize that love seeded us with great abilities....(try
the other 90% of the brain no one knows what to do with) and
we have only to exercise them to build our spiritual/psychic
Don't take what you haven't accomplished
as a personal flaw at all. You're not doing anything any other
person hasn't done. It's all timed to awareness and your ability
to see that. So you are in the right place, at the right time,
to grow and explore your Self. Live in the Now, learn from the
past, see into your future, but walk the path you are on and
it will unfold as it should. Be patient. You'll get there and
meanwhile enjoy it through practicing and honing your gifts
and abilities. They are your tools in life.
In closing here's a ditty for you:
Isn't it strange that Princes and
And Clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
And common people like you and me,
are builders for eternity?
Each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, a book of rules,
And each must make, 'ere life has flown,
A stumbling block...or a stepping stone.
I hope this is a stepping stone for
those who need it.
