Standing in My Own Way – but a little bit less every day

Posted on April 30, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

I love when Spirit puts messages in my path.  Well, actually, since Spirit is doing that all of the time, I love when I’m aware enough to notice the messages!

I’ve been on a quest for the past 9 months to grow spiritually and to develop my intuitive gifts.  Actually, my spiritual quest has been going on a lot longer than that.  I guess I started about 9 months ago to develop psychically.  Wasn’t I surprised to realize that psychic communication and spiritual communication are in fact one in the same?  What an “Aha Moment” when these two pursuits melded into one!

So my greatest desire lately has been to see and hear psychically.  You know – see pictures and images sent as messages from Spirit to me and to others, to see my guides and angels, to hear the voices of my guides and angels, and even to hear others’ guides and angels so that I can help others on their own spiritual quests.

To write that desire down, I realize how “out there” it sounds.  Do I seriously want to hear voices and see things?  Don’t people think I’m weird enough without being accused of being crazy too?  It’s probably one of those “be careful what you wish for” situations.

However, as I continue along my journey, striving to strengthen and increase my communication with the spirit world, I’ve come to realize a few important things.

First of all, I’m already communicating with Spirit – or rather, Spirit is already communicating with me.  It always has been.  It’s never been a matter of my “becoming psychic” – I’ve always had that ability (as you have too).  It’s more a matter of conscious awareness – isn’t that the case with most things spiritual?  Degrees of awareness.

So my ability to see and hear comes down to an ability to discern and listen.  Spirit is subtle.  That’s one of the biggest “Aha’s” I’ve had.  Spirit is quiet, and the messages come quickly – gone in an instant.  So if  you’re not watching carefully, you’re not sure the message was even there.  It’s easy to chalk it up to imagination.

But, it’s important that Spirit be subtle and quiet for a couple of reasons.  First, Spirit always respects our Free Will.  It will never force us to take one path versus another.  Spirit merely guides us, offering suggestions.  It is always our choice whether to follow that guidance or not.  The second reason that Spirit comes to us quietly is so that it can simply be another layer of our existence, another dimension coexisting with our physical reality.  Spirit needs not overpower our lives, but it is always available to us should we choose to open ourselves to it.

The other big realization I’ve had regarding my communicating with Spirit is that it’s not as much an act of “doing” something as it is the state of “being” something.  Being psychic, which simply means actively tapping into the energy all around us, is not something we do but something we are.  It’s a lifestyle.

Someone recently told me that my interest in the paranormal is merely a phase that I’m going through, something I’ll eventually outgrow.  Perhaps.   I don’t think so though.  My interest in developing my psychic gifts and growing spiritually is entwined in the very fabric of my life.  Once we know something, we can’t “un-know” it.  I now see how powerful I become when I embrace my spiritual self, the part of me that connects me to every other living thing and to Divine Source, to God.  I don’t ever want to let that knowing go!

It still amazes me that what I thought began as an intellectual exercise to “learn how to be psychic” has really become a lifestyle of living from Spirit.  And the only thing standing between me and the attainment of my desire is me.

Each day as I grow in awareness and trust, I move closer and closer to my goal.  As I accept and embrace my spiritual nature, I become more of the spiritual being I desire.  I become more of All That I Am and All That Is.  What could be a more meaningful pursuit in life?

The trick is not to try to hard. Let it come through naturally. Good luck with your journey

well said….you have a wonderful way of putting thoughts down into words that make sense! i agree with you…and join you on the quest….thanks for being a piece of my puzzle!

I am enjoying your realizations and your way…

Thank you Ladies for your kind words of support. Every day I learn something new. Yes, I’m still impatient to master the skills I’m desiring, but I’m learning to embrace the journey itself. We’ll never actually “get there”, right? So we might as well choose to have fun along the way.
