Note to self: Do not give other people more authority of my experience than I give myself.
There is always someone in this world who claims to know the fix to what ails you. In most cases, they may be familiar with the symptoms, but not the reality of the story, for they have not had personal experience of the same.
At times the assistance of those familiar with symptoms is needed, for they have the authority and access to many medicines which can make it possible to calm the storm in the heart and mind while the person affected gets a clearer knowledge and understanding of what is happening to them. Eventually they will be able to leave the symptom recognizer and handle their own affairs, should they choose to do the work.
I am amazed at how many people read stories in books about the Spirit Realms and take them to heart, believing that all who are not in body are bad. You ask them if they believe in God, most say yes. Ask them if they believe what they hear may be of God, and they say it’s the devil.
Some say that God would never speak to folks because he respects their sovereignty, but people have been messengers of Spirit for a very long time. This relationship was at one time more intimate, now everyone is trained to fear it, medicate it, and deny it.
Fear has had its day in my mind and life. I’m going to move forward with a different frame of mind, a mind of acceptance, and a curiosity that brings blessing to reality, not fear. Yes, I know there are many people who behave very badly, they are not who I speak of. I speak of that intimate connection with those beyond, who simply wish to be heard, not feared, not slandered, not hated.
There has been too much rejection in this world, and not enough embrace. Unless I permit myself to love it, it will never reveal its true self to me.
People have been trained to eliminate everything that doesn’t feel comfortable. Getting stressed? There’s a pill for that. Anxiety getting you down? Here’s something to calm you. Can’t sleep, too many dreams? Here, take this 1/2 hour before bed time. Having conversations with those no one else hears? Take this, it will stop them from speaking … and on, and on … anything and everything to help you not deal with the way things are, just so things can continue in the manner which has brought upset to so many lives, without actual change. Honestly, this current system is not about helping people understand, it is about keeping them quiet and docile.
“We are so captivated and entangled in our subjective consciousness that we have forgotten the age-old fact that God speaks chiefly through dreams and visions.” … “People will do anything, no matter how absurd, to avoid facing their own souls.” ~ Carl Jung
