When we take a close look at nature, it tells us that it is not only about surviving, it also about thriving and becoming more than what we were before --whether that “more” is in quantity, or in the case of natural selection, “quality.” So when it comes to examining our own personal journeys, what we have so far been calling the “force of Life” is also the Song of your Spirit. Now, the trick lies in the fact that consciousness can only be Itself, and what it currently accepts as knowing within Itself will be what is manifested for experience. So how do we move beyond our boundaries and grow into something we have yet to be?
As always, we start this season with the “New Year’s Resolution.” For me, this year I am choosing to work on cultivating a more positive mindset. On the surface, this sounds like a decent resolution – who wants to go through the next 12 months as a sourpuss? But upon closer examination, there’s a series very valid reasons why each of us could consider this one of the most important endeavors to pursue.
Those in spirit feel the loss, too. Perhaps even more especially so, since they know they are still quite alive and are aware, yet battling against a symbolic brick wall of everyone back here on earth relying so much on the outer senses for interaction. So how do we “get them back” and help them reach us? How do we – both here on earth and the Other Side – regain some sense of communion, and thus “wholeness” again within our hearts?
When it comes to doing things psychic or otherwise considered “paranormal” or “unordinary,” there’s always a possibility of encountering that essence inside that leaves one crying out “Noooo!” A lot of people experience this when they are forced with public speaking (not necessarily paranormal, but outside a perceived comfort zone), or also having to address an emotional issue with a partner, etc. In technical terms, we call it Fear. And as I eluded to in the latter sentence, it is a form of rallying against going outside your comfort zone.
When we watch mediums demonstrate, it can be easy to place the kudos for the information on them. There’s nothing wrong with being excited and congratulatory about the magnitude and intricacies of a message (especially if you’re the medium delivering it). However, it’s important to note: The medium is not the message.
There is definitely a difference in frequency within the world that we inhabit and the spiritual realms where we go after we shed the body. That frequency variance has to be taken into account when it comes to the communication process; a person’s thoughts must come with a level of intensity to move from one frequency layer to another, enough that it can be “grabbed” by the frequency modulation of the medium. We must acknowledge the effort this must take.
Many people have problems in achieving the stillness that meditation can bring and thus its splendid results, both mentally and physiologically (those effects have been medically documented). Meditation, instead, turns into a chore, and never is it used for “communicating with spirits.” Yet it is precisely because of its relaxing, mind-cleansing stature that makes such communication much more available and likely to occur.
The big question is: how do you by-pass all your own mental chatter?
