This is a personal viewpoint
I have NOT stopped believing in our connections to other realities and the world of spirit containing spirit guides and/or deceased relatives. YET, at the same time as making that statement, it is clear to me that I don’t “go there” so much these days–at least not for myself anyway. Why? I ask myself this very question and hope this bit of writing will help sort it out.
Maybe it is because the clear advantage of being spiritually responsible for my own evolution in the here and now (which happens to be planet earth in this body/soul/consciousness) is my primary focus these days. And I’m aging (like everyone is!) and as I get closer to the possibility of the ending of this form, this physical body, priorities change.
Maybe this happens to everyone and not just me — this I cannot say. I haven’t taken a survey nor is there any interest on my part in doing so. What has happened for me anyway is that I’m much more aware of what I’m supposed to do here — and one biggie has to do with remaining in a state of peace despite emotional challenges. Can my departed parents or a spiritual entity in another dimension do this for me? Spiritual evolution is personal — not that we can’t receive assistance when heartfelt and earnest request is made; but I’m here and while my parents and guides, et. al. are near and dear, I alone make the determined choice and effort to manage my own psyche with both feet on Mother Earth, here and now.
The last two words are key in what I’m attempting to express. Here: Earth Dimension Now: As I sit at my desk, in front of this keyboard in my living room. It will do me no good to go talking to my deceased parents or a spirit entity right at this moment–in fact, it feels somewhat like co-dependent escapism to some extent to do so.
Now, this doesn’t mean that I don’t believe loved ones can communicate with us here upon Earth through someone who is open and receptive. Yet, I think of it this way — my parents or spirit guides cannot live in this body with me and actually if I’m not careful, their communication can become (if my focus is off) a huge distraction.
That said. I’m aware that we are all at different points of consciousness evolution — none better than another. To be clear, I’m not expressing that one person’s evolution in one direction is more or less advanced than another’s. One thing that Soul Astrology has taught me is that we are all on particular paths with different karmic pasts. Like snowflakes, we are all alike yet so very different, unique.
I am able to (somehow and I don’t know precisely how) connect in with the energy of persons, places and things whether here on Earth or elsewhere — most of the time if the need is great enough and I am clear enough at any give time. Intention and compassion on my part to help another enables the clarity. Yet, it has become a lesser focus and direct mission in my life.
Rather, my own heart is drawn in other directions — more specifically in taking personal responsibility for my own energy and evolution. This is a bit difficult to express and I am using this blog post to sort it out as I said.
Maybe I feel that I’ve exhausted that direction or gone as far down the path of psychic and medium types of personal seeking and have doubled back now to the main path — something like this anyway.
Once we discover a truth, there is no need to keep on; it becomes redundant. In another way of saying that and being very, very blunt (but not unfeeling) about it, it becomes like this: So what? Our loved ones remain with us and can communicate and entities from other dimension exist and also communicate–all in helpful ways at times. So what? And while I realize that I am not really a separate entity apart from ‘All That Is’ and that in essence, this person (personality) called ‘me’ and this physical body doesn’t really exist apart from everything else on an ultimate level, they do conventionally. Non-self is a helpful view to have while maintaining a conventional view in balance. We exist, yet we don’t — if you will.
The question then becomes something having to do with questioning why conventionality exists in the first place and why challenges and difficulties exist here on Earth and what we do about them — are we to escape and ignore them or do we use them to help ourselves and others evolve in such ways that spiritual responsibility is taken for growth and evolution? And how do we use the body and the mind-consciousness in such ways that enable us to realize a greater truth? What truth? Remaining in the ‘Here and Now’ while achieving and arriving at the Field of Peace while in this physical body/mind. When one compares that goal to one that has already been reached which involves talking to the deceased loved ones or spiritual entities or guides . . . well, you see my point maybe?
In the end, through divination what are the angels and guides guiding us toward but back into our own self while understanding the non-self so that we can function in a peaceful way upon the Earth–that’s what it’s about for me now. And while we are here helping others to do the same perhaps through example or maybe even through something like this rather long laborious blog post, its what we’re here to do. Here and now.
Thus end my thoughts about this topic for now.
