Those of us who are "spiritual" and "intuitive" assume that people outside our inner circle understand us when we say things such as "I got a message from Spirit today" or " Spirit told me" .... and are often surprised when we get odd looks like we need medication? But it is no wonder, with the supernatural spin the media puts on all things spiritual these days that we get that negative reaction. From the now old school TV series "Charmed" to Americas recent obsession with all things Vampire the media portrays all things "supernatural" as scary and darkly unnatural.
If we shut out media influence and listen to our inner voices we can go to a place of positive intent and ask why can't "supernatural" be miraculous and beautifully "super - natural"?
Why can't it be a quest for God and Angels?
My quest for God began very young. I was brought up Roman Catholic and my Mom had a very strong religious faith. We went to Catholic school and we went to church on Sunday, we worshiped within the confines of scripture and rituals like confession and communion, we had patron saints and fasted on Good Friday. My beliefs were only what I was taught by Nuns and Priests and Mom. I am actually grateful for what now seems to be an unbelievably restrictive conditioning of a child's mind, because it was the foundation of my "Spirit". I felt comfort and joy during those beautiful rituals. Even now, although I follow no organized religion I love to go to church for communion. Receiving "Christ" still inspires me with Spirit even though I now know him as an Ascended Master not the "Son" of God.
When I was 13, like all good Catholic kids I was confirmed by a Cardinal who wore beautiful golden robes and a big red hat. The Nuns instructed us about this all important sacrament called Confirmation... in which we confirm our faith in God. By special blessing from the Cardinal ,as he prays over us and puts his scepter on our shoulder, we receive the Holy Spirit . But like every other 13 year old for me it was about the new dress and the after party. Then something strange happened. As the Cardinal gave me the blessing I felt light and filled with joy. I felt a warmth through my whole body and a bubbly energy where I imagined my soul to be. It was quite a special feeling. It moved me, but at such a tender young age I did not understand. I was afraid to tell anyone.
Finally that afternoon I went to my Mom. "Hey Mom", I said "I think I felt the Holy Spirit today"... but she was too busy cooking the ham for the party to "get me". Sadly I filed the experience away in the recesses of my Self and it was misplaced, buried somewhere in the chaos of teenage years. But my first connection with Spirit was not lost. .. that recess it fell into was a part of me ..I would eventually remember...
God ( Spirit ) is our creator and he created us and the universe in his image.
Therefore we all have a piece of God's energy within us. This God Energy or "Spirit" connects us to each other and the universe. Our soul is eternal and lives through many human experiences or lives carrying this energy. The energy inside our soul has a vibration as does all things in the universe. We can connect to this energy by tuning in to the part of us that is our God Energy = Spirit. When you connect with Spirit you connect with your higher self - your "eternal self" your soul and all the wisdom stored there from past lives and from God. This is why in meditation we receive all the answers we seek, they are within us if we just connect and listen. It is also why some people have a natural or developed connection to communicate with souls that have passed over. They have learned to connect their soul energy and match their vibration to the passed over souls energy.
Connecting to Spirit is easy. Just as we condition ourselves to play basketball, workout or learn Spanish we can teach ourselves to get in touch with Spirit through meditation or connecting with nature or any personal way that connects you with your soul . Some friends connect through the use of crystals or Reiki. Shamans connect to Spirit through the earth 's energy. Perhaps hiking or sailing or hang gliding are your "connection". It doesn't matter what connects you its just important to connect!
I connect on a Yoga mat . It is my sacred place where unbidden in the quiet low light surrounded by Buddhas and incense ,Spirit came to me one afternoon. I had been sad and grieving my life, trying to find comfort in a yoga meditation when suddenly I was filled with a warmth and joy bubbling from my soul. I felt as though I ascended suspended 4 feet from earth. It was the most moving experience of my life but to anyone next to me I was just laying there on my mat. I was overwhelmed by emotion as tears streamed down my face and the forgotten memory of a 13 year old little girl washed over me. Yes, I remembered. I remembered that day... Laying there on the mat , eyes closed I was transported back in time to the eyes of a 13 year old me. I could see the sun pouring through stained glass windows of the huge church as a man in robes prayed over me and the Holy Spirit filled my soul. As I returned to my body on the yoga mat feeling incredible joy and peace like never before, my mind said.."So this is what they mean by God's grace". And I knew I was strong and loved by God and the feeling was incredible. Grace. I was now forever connected to my Higher Self and Spirit. A memory of "Spirit" imprinted on my 13 year old soul had led me back to God and myself. The sensations were exact!
When we say "Spirit told me" or "Spirit gave me a message" we are not referring to a ghost or any other scary entity. Spirit is your soul and the seat of your God energy. Spirit is your higher self. Spirit is in everything. Spirit is vibration and energy. Spirit is inside you and in every living creature. Spirit is in the universe, in animals, in the wind, the waters, the earth, the planets and the sky. Spirit is in the blue waters under your boat, the soft breeze against your cheek, the hard ground under your mat ,your babies cry, your dogs yawn, your Mothers hands, the moon beam through the window, even in the ice cream dripping down your cone. When we are quiet Spirit is in the stillness and if we pay close attention we can connect and hear the messages of Spirit in all these things. And we connect to gratitude and it fills all our missing spaces.
Thank you Spirit!
It is by Your grace I live and and connect to you and my beautiful life .
