Recently someone asked me, “what is the most important thing you do in your spiritual practice and why?”
Each person has obviously a very unique way they maneuver on the road to growth. I have stayed inquisitive about existence and question the why of everything. The constant questioning has led me to unravel many of the mysteries of who am I and why am I here and what is this Earth thing? Even tho I no longer have deep desires to know many things, because these questions have been answered, I continue to ponder in my way further out into realms where my human brain has trouble holding on.
The inner pondering, or internal research as I call it, has broadened my perspective tenfold. In the past, the answers out there to life’s riddles from others seemed full of holes and misnomers, and so I worked at solving these riddles for myself, with the help of my higher self. Don’t listen to other’s who tell you it is impossible to know such things and maybe for them it is. If there are questions to something which pull at you for answers, keep at it until that answer is fulfilled and you feel satiated and at peace.
I have written other articles on ways to communicate with one’s higher self, so I won’t go into this at this time. I will say, the relationship with our higher self and to be able to open up the connection and practice communication with Self, is vital for our growth. I urge all to nurture this relationship so you can make the most of it in this life as it will significantly enhance and speed up one’s spiritual growth. Whatever baby steps, we can take in this direction is worth our efforts.
Would you like to know why I picked this May photo of the lilacs, for this August post? Because this is the image, my higher self told me she wanted to use today. This is the only reason! I practice being at her command at all times. Compared to the whole of existence, my human self is like that little drop of water on the flower in the photo. And the only desire this drop has is to merge itself with the whole of who I am. May Oneness be yours today.
Recently someone asked me, “What happens spiritually when you go against your heart and deny yourself what you truly want in life?”
This is not an easy question to answer because some people think their ego desires are their hearts desires. Not everyone is aligned with the desire of their higher self. We have a lot of narcissists in our society who are cut off from their intuition and the guidance of their higher self. People are often uncertain as to what and who they follow for their guidance. This is because they lack the full understanding of their higher self and why they should choose their higher selves desires over the desires of their ego. And perhaps they don’t have the will power to align with their higher self, and in the case of narcissists, they will not have the ability.
There are only these two choices for guidance. We are either following the choice of our ego or our higher self and yes, sometimes both of these will make the same choice, which of course makes the decision easier. How can we tell the difference in our choices? If it is an important choice, we should give our self some time, if possible, to be sure of the decision. I practice feeling and hearing the answer, and then I shut off my intellect and use a pendulum to confirm the answer with my higher self. I will also ask the question in different ways to make sure of the answer I am getting. Once I feel I have the correct answer, I will follow it. This is the method I have been using for years.
We can also practice trying on the different choices and paying attention to what the alternative feels like. Some people work with the tarot cards for confirmations or the I-Ching. When we get to a stage on our path, where we recognize it is essential always to follow our higher self, this is what we do. If we do something else other than this, for whatever reason, we will be haunted by the choice and never feel good about the decision we made and not following our spirit.
All the choices we make are to teach us to learn to follow our spirit in all things… following our spirit becomes our heart’s desire and what we want above all else. I hope this answers your question.
I was asked recently to answer, “In a very simplified way, what are higher vibrations and higher consciousness, and why do we need it for our soul life purpose?” Find my succinct answer below.
Because this is who we are. We are higher vibrations and higher consciousness. Earth is a school, and we are here to learn who we are and what we are, in all our many forms and dimensions. How far can we expand into our being and raise our consciousness? We are that which created us. Our being is infinite, and this is why enlightenment is a never-ending process of becoming our True Self. This is true evolution, and what is really taking place… and everything else is a dream!
I wasrecently asked, “What happens to theego-mind when one transforms into their higher self?”
As we grow to become more of our higher self, our ego-mind becomes diminished. It is still present. However, our higher self overshadows it, while it exists in the background of our being. The ego-mind is no longer who and what we identify as or who we answer to. We now take all of our guidance and cues from our higher self.
When we invite our higher self into our being, we have made a declaration to our being, at some level, that this life belongs to the higher self. We have the recognition that our life is an instrument for our higher self to use… it is the higher self’s life. When we reinforce this sincere choice over and over, the power the ego has in our life is gone. This takes place over time, within stages of awareness, as we come into a broader understanding of Reality and who and what we are.
I was recently asked the question: “I just got a spiritual pendulum, do you have any tips on how I can improve my spirituality?”
The pendulum can be an excellent tool. Don’t listen to the naysayers. If you work and practice with it, it can help you to deepen your relationship with your higher self and can teach you to become more intuitive or psychic. It can also help you with your health. You must be clear and precise with your questions, and who you are asking otherwise you will get wishy-washy results. If you don’t name who you are asking, any unenlightened, out-of-body being can answer. This is not good. Realizing this is what made a big difference for me in getting accurate answers years ago.
If you want to deepen your relationship with your higher self, ask your higher self your questions, and practice listening for the answers as your pendulum is being moved. Your higher self can pretty much answer anything you would want to know. If you want to know about your health, diet, and body, ask your body for the answers. Your body is smart and can guide you on how to take better care of it… like what foods it wants to eat to stay healthy.
When asking questions, in order to get precise information, we must be neutural and nonattached to the answers. If we are biased so will be the answer. Our questions must be precise. This goes for all guidance tools one might be use.
I recommend finding pendulum charts online or in a book or makeing your own. Books can give you many good ideas about how you can use your pendulum. Just know that it takes a little time and effort for this tool of communication to be developed into something useful. However, once you have it, you will be a fan for life.
I was recently asked the question “When you spiritually awaken why do the relationships of those close to you feel different?” Below is my answer to this question.
The more we awaken, the more we become sovereign beings and complete within our self. We are no longer emotionally tied to others in the same way we were previously. Our relationships with others become non-personal relationships. The relationships most people have with each other are emotionally, personal and emotionally binding. They become emotionally enmeshed with each other or what some call co-dependent where personal boundaries are diffused.
As we grow spiritually, we learn to balance our emotions and we let go of relationships with emotional dependencies because we value our own sovereignty and enlightenment above all else. As we awaken, the emotional ties to everything loosen, until we become free emotionally from others and the reality of the material. By freeing the emotional bonds we have with others, we make room for our higher self to become more prominent in our being.
I was recently asked “What version of a spiritual path do you follow”? Read my answer below.
I follow my MaRae’s version, who is my higher self or spirit self in the higher dimensions. It is her path and legacy I am participating in. I am merely her representative in human form. It is with great honor that I have come to know her and to know this is who I am in the higher dimensions. I follow her guidance and preferences in all things for I recognize this life is hers and so it is her spirituality I follow.
My spirituality is individual (as is the case for all of us) and comes from the highest of the Earth’s dimensions. I have memories of past lives on this earth as well as from other star systems. MaRae is part of a group of souls who have come to Earth on a mission and we will be soon leaving when the Earth school shifts into the next dream cycle for teaching. We are currently helping to prepare individuals for the coming shift, which is soon to come.
This was a good question because it brought forth an insightful answer that many can relate to as they have watched their own paths change over the years. What version of a spiritual path do you follow? Each of us has a unique tailor-made path because of the life our higher self designed for us.
If we are involved with the teachings from another being or for a time, it means there ia an attunement and vibrational alignment happening in the higher dimensions. Often times our higher self will use other’s teachings for us, as a stepping off point into new doorways, which will then take our being even further than the original teacher’s teachings. This is how we work together as a team to serve each other for the betterment of all.
