In the years that I have been connecting to the Spirit Guides of others, I’ve noticed a common theme - they often make their entrances rather theatrically! Early on, I was reading for a woman during The College of Psychic Studies open evening. Before she arrived for her appointment, I sat in meditation as I always do before a reading - it’s how I still my mind and attune myself to the energy of the subtle realms. In my mind’s eye a very manly Viking with long ginger hair emerged from the depths, perched on a ship in a choppy ocean...
There is one message that has vibrated through the chords of many voices, echoed through aeons. A truth that all great spiritual teachers have shared: The Kingdom of Heaven is within you. At the centre of your Being you have the answers. The Universe is inside you.
Essentially: you hold the bell that will awaken the sleeping Buddha.
In Zen we hear a parable: do not mistake the finger pointing at the moon for the moon. Meaning, do not mistake the teachings that lead to awakening, for awakening itself. At some point your eyes must leave their contact with the finger, and move across the void towards the moon. To see the luminous sphere, you must leave the realm of concepts and shift into another space. As such, this work is a bridge, a pointer to help you cross to the other side and once across, leave the bridge and explore the moonlit land that awaits you. Sometimes the finger points and you look, only you still do not experience the lunar event – are you looking for it with an active mind? Is it a new moon, hiding itself?
I am grateful for my hands. There is magic flowing through them.
I am grateful for my feet. They take me everywhere I wish to go.
I am grateful for my heart. I know it beats in harmony with the heart of the Universe. I listen with my ears just below the surface while I submerge my consciousness in the still water of the bathtub. It bellows in a rhythmic chant that tranquillises mental noise.
You might not have noticed, but the light collective has become stronger. By this we mean those like you committed to a world ruled by love and compassion.
You might not have noticed, but you are not a tree on it’s own facing the elements. You are a mighty forest. You are strong and your desire is aligned with the Universe’s urge to awaken.
This process will activate your sacred connection to All That Is. Use it to harness your remembering, to slip into Oneness.
Breathe deeply into your heart. Feel it open, soften, notice how strong it is.
Connect to your Heart. This is the throne of your soul. Linger in the vibration of love that emanates here.
This is a portal.
At this threshold you are connected to Oneness. In that expansive, vast plane of energy lies the heart of all things.
