When I write these posts and teach this material I don’t believe for one moment that this makes me anymore special than anyone else. I believe that Spirit is talking to all of us all of the time. Its more a question of who listens. In our society we are not taught how to listen. I believe in some cultures this ability was taught or at least given equal importance to learning the “outer” message.
I have nothing against science or religion, but both are outer messages to me as is any other teacher teaching messages similar to these. Indeed, my message is an outer message to you it is only an inner message to me and can only be an inner message to me. You can only find your inner message by going deep within your consciousness to find it.
I am teaching a third way. A way that is neither science nor religion but is instead about finding the essence of ourselves, bringing it out and living it each and every day as our truth. The world has room for this. Every philosopher who has ever lived has done this. All religion begins with it – one or more people going deep within to bring out the truth of their existence.
In order to communicate with Spirit we first have to believe that Spirit is there to communicate with us. If we don’t believe it, the communication cannot take place and we will look upon messages like this with a certain amount of incredulity. There are countless stories of people who have not believed in this, only to have a life changing experience that has changed their belief completely and from that moment on have communicated.
One problem we have in making inner communication is the extent to which we have studied the outer world. The more we have listened to messages outside of ourselves and accepted the outer message as truth and assimilated it into our belief system, the harder it is to hear the inner voice or feeling that may contradict that outer truth. To the point that life changing experience is the only way that the inner message may find its way into our belief structure.
In my experience as I look back upon it now, Spirit has given me nudges throughout my life. Even from when I was a child, Spirit nudged me in a way that prevented me from becoming overtly influenced by the outer world. During the time when I wasn’t prepared to live this as my everyday life I kept leaving clues for myself that kept me intimately connected to my inner world. The most obvious example being Indigo Wholefoods – Indigo is a word with deeply Spiritual connotations.
I believe that in order to communicate with Spirit there are some rules to follow. Firstly, we must believe in it as described earlier. Secondly we need to understand our feeling definition of Spirit for me that feeling is joy, happiness, peace and unconditional love. Thirdly, we need to put ourselves in that place. Not being in that place will prevent communication with our Spirit. Fourthly, we need to put ourselves in a setting that allows us to make communication. For some that is meditation for others it going out and sitting in nature. For me it is in the morning, shortly after waking up, before I have been subject to the outer messages of the day. For all I believe it has to be a way of quietening the outer messages and the emotions of the ego – guilt, anger, fear and grief.
There are also some qualities I believe that people who are communicating with Spirit need to refine. Firstly, we need to understand that this is our truth we are seeking not universal truth. We have to be able to allow others to find their voice and for their voice to be different. The Spirit world is big enough and paradoxical enough for all truths to have merit. Secondly, we need to follow our truth especially when we doubt it. If we don’t follow it we build up a grief that comes from not being authentic to ourselves which is not a self-loving act. Thirdly, we need to reject any thought, feeling or belief that would suggest that we are better than another. That the beliefs or practices of another are wrong and reject absolutely any thought, feeling or belief that we need to prevent another from feeling joy, happiness, peace and unconditional love in order to follow our truth. These thoughts, feelings and beliefs are the ego getting in the way and and trying to implement its philosophy of separation.
The communication is primarily one of feeling and translating the feeling into words. Sometimes the message may be a clear word or words popping into our minds, even this is feeling as the translation has just happened instantaneously. Sometimes the message may appear in things outside of ourselves especially if we are not able to have a feeling communication with Spirit. The interpretation needs to be ours though not someone elses. The most important thing is to try and see what happens. It could change your life.
There is just one thing that reading this post requires you to do and that is to consider what you believe about Spirit and follow the insights gained from your inquiry. Remember what you have read here is my truth. Your truth, whether this matches my truth or not, is more important to you than mine. Revisit this post whenever you think it may be of help.
