Awakening to a Spiritually Guided Life: From Hopelessness to Consciousness
When you are confronted with hopelessness in your life, you can face a time of profound transformation. On some level, we share the inner knowing and hope that something greater than us exists to help us get through it — be it God, the Universe, Buddha, or whomever we align with spiritually. Before my awakening, I was unconscious in my existence; I just moved unquestioningly through the process of life. I had questioned my existence when I was younger, but in the throes of marriage, children, and work, my curiosity about the meaning of life had evaporated. Then, when crisis came knocking, my faith and spirituality were rekindled. I wanted to hold my spirituality accountable; I wanted it to be there for me. Was that too much to ask? During my deepest state of hopelessness and despair, I surrendered, and my spirituality was revealed to me in a way I could never have imagined. It was in this moment that I became conscious of not only who I was, but of the power of the divine energy that lives, moves, and creates within us all. Connecting with spirit is not an easy thing to share; it takes courage. As I said to my husband, Benny, "Don't tell anyone. They will think we are mad to live a spiritually guided life."
Courage is the resistance to fear, mastery of fear — not the absence of fear.
— Mark Twain
Spiritual But Not Religious
I have had a "knowing" of the divine and of spirit since I was a child. I had always been a spiritually inquisitive person, but I'd kept my spirituality well and truly locked in the closet.
Let's face it: there's nothing like a major family illness and crisis to inspire a spiritual enquiry into faith and belief. Given that I was confronted with the fight of my life, I felt it was high time my spirituality became accountable. I had dedicated my life to my Christian faith, and now I needed help. I was in the biggest battle of my life, and my faith was being called up to step in and help. In truth, I hadn't been a practicing Catholic for years. I had gone through the motions and the rituals of the Church through every new stage of my life — birth, school, and marriage — but I was just going along with the religion I was raised in. I felt disconnected from the Church, but I had always felt close to God.
I was confused and had been searching for years for the right way to connect spiritually. What was the right way to have a relationship with God?
There was another aspect of my spirituality that I'd kept hidden, something that was also at odds with my religion. All my life — particularly during times of crisis — I had met with psychics, clairvoyants, numerologists, and astrologers to gain insight into and guidance about the direction of my life. I felt more connected in this realm; I found I could get the guidance I needed through healers. I also kept an oracle card deck next to my bed, which I referred to for years. I told no one except my husband. I was completely in the spiritual closet and had been all of my life. I didn't know how to bring these two intersecting parts of my spirituality together — but I couldn't let either of them go.
Now more than ever, I really needed God, Mary, the Universe, my grandmother in heaven, or anyone. I just quietly had this deep, loving connection with God. Even though I wasn't really sure who or what God was at this stage, I could feel a presence of love in my life that I associated with God. I wasn't sure if I was doing the right thing — or exactly what to do — but I just knew in my heart of hearts that, now more than ever, I needed my spirituality to help me out of this despair and hopelessness. I had nothing else.
So I started to explore my spirituality more. I had acquired several new spiritual friends, and we had begun to meet on a weekly basis to talk about all sorts of spiritual topics. I began meditating, and I even attended a course on Buddhism. I began exploring metaphysical topics and really connecting with what my spirituality meant to me.
To be honest, I was angry, frustrated, and really annoyed with God (or whoever was "upstairs"). I felt as if I was being tested. My family was so weary, and I couldn't understand why this had to be my life. This despair had been going on for years. I was fed up, and I wanted my spirituality to be accountable. Why will God not help me? I thought. Is anybody actually hearing my prayers? I felt my life was not a reflection of who I was, and I couldn't understand how it had come to be shrouded in this darkness. I was exhausted and at my wits' end. Nothing was helping my husband and child to heal; in fact, things were getting much worse, and the medical profession had told me repeatedly, "We're sorry, but there's nothing more we can do for you."
Then it happened.
During a phone call one day, a friend and I were discussing aura colours. She was telling me that dark or murky colours that show up in a person's aura can represent illness or dark energies and negative spirits. I listened with great fascination as she went on to say, "If a black hue is present in someone's aura, that is not a good sign at all. You should stay away from that person."
At the end of the phone call, as I sat outside, I could hear a voice in my head saying, "Ask Ben if he can see black out the corner of his eye." The guiding voice was gentle, kind, and clear, and while it sounded just like me, it wasn't me.
I stared through the outside door at my husband as he cleaned up the kitchen. I got up, opened the door, and called him over. I asked him, "Have you ever noticed any black around yourself?"
With that, be burst into tears. He was so relieved. "I've seen black shapes out the corners of my eye for so long, and today in particular. It keeps on getting closer and closer. I didn't want to say anything because it was so strange." He was sobbing.
A wave of relief, shock, and confusion came over me. It was at this moment that everything changed. It felt as if heaven had opened up and filled our home with a sense of calm and peace. I was filled with an inner knowing that was so clear and absolute. I knew exactly what to do.
Both Ben and I could hear, see, and feel energy all around us. It was the most extraordinary experience. At first I couldn't see full apparitions of ghosts, spiritual beings, and angels, but I could see energy. I most definitely could feel it, and my "knowing" was without a shadow of a doubt. It was supremely powerful, loving, and potent.
In retrospect I realize that it was a good thing that I was not able to see too much then; I would have freaked out. But I could feel the energy. The powerful energy that filled the room filled us with a sense of safety and a knowing of what was there, as well as images in our minds. With our actual eyes, we would see energy moving and shifting around and shooting past us with a swoosh. Both of us had a strong knowing of who — or what — was around us; we could describe exactly the same experience, although nothing was physically evident. It was like being in a time warp with an energy that was guiding us step by step with an inner knowing of what to do.
Even though I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, I knew enough to just surrender to the guidance. The energy felt loving, guiding, and powerful. At one point, a hymn that my grandmother used to sing to me as a child started playing in my head. It was as if someone had turned on an internal stereo. I hadn't heard that hymn since her passing, and I had only a faint memory of it; I had been very young at the time. The hymn was very loud in my head, and I felt gently euphoric, calm, and fearless. I was both excited and overjoyed that she was letting me know she was with me and all would be fine.
What was happening to us? It was surreal but loving. I was surprised that neither of us was frightened. I kept asking Ben if he was frightened, and he assured me he wasn't. It was almost as if I couldn't believe how frightened I didn't feel. We both felt really calm. All of our senses were heightened, and we were receiving messages about what needed to happen to clear the energy in and around my husband.
Time just seemed to stand still as divine guidance filled me with the knowledge of what to do. We immediately shifted from being excited and in awe to being focused on tuning in to deal with the negative energy that was around my husband, in his aura, and in our home. It was in this moment that my spirituality changed.
Don't Tell Anyone! People Will Think We Are Mad.
After our initial connection with our spiritual guides and angels, we began the process of trying to clear our home of the negative energies in and around us. We both had no idea what we were doing, and yet we were not fearful at all; indeed, we felt empowered that we had a solution for dealing with the negativity that was all around Ben and in our home — energy that had been impacting our daily lives. We were so relieved to have a solution, albeit a very unconventional one.
The process of learning how to be spiritually guided and live a spiritually guided life was revealed to us over an intensive two-year period, but at the time it seemed to take forever, and I was still questioning if what I was seeing, feeling, sensing, and living was actually happening or whether it was all a dream. Why did it have to take so long given that my family was so ill? I wanted reassurance that what I was experiencing was real. I asked my guides to send me a feather. Feathers are actually a common sign used by angels to let you know they are present, but at that point I wasn't aware of this idea.
Using pen and paper, I wrote a long letter to my guides and poured my heart out. At the end of the letter I asked: "If you are true, and what is happening to me is real, then leave me a feather. I want to be able to see a feather."
I walked outside and sat down on my back steps. As I settled myself, I looked up. Gliding its way down towards me from the sky was a huge white feather.
I kid you not. I was in shock. Part of me was in disbelief that a feather would even show up at all let alone so quickly. There wasn't a tree or a bird in sight. Rational explanation? Nothing. In that moment, I leaped up and burst into tears. I was connected! My prayers had been answered, and I wasn't nuts! What I was seeing, feeling, and sensing was real. Not only that, I was being spiritually guided, and the feelings of hopelessness and despair were leaving me.
But as we stumbled through the lessons we were being taught and applied them to our own lives and health issues, with trial and error, I remember saying to Ben, "We can never tell anyone what is happening to us. They will think we are mad."
The result: my husband's depression and my son's eczema were healed — cured, gone, kaput!
Being backed into a corner of hopelessness, illness, and despair had forced me out of the spiritual closet to dare to consider that I could be spiritually assisted in healing my family. As it always is with so many other families and individuals, my situation had seemed hopeless. I stood to lose everything including the people I loved. I was open to anything. The good news is that you don't need to go through hard times the way I did to realize that you, too, have the opportunity to live a spiritually guided life.
All that I have, you have too. This is why I have written this book. To share with you something that you already have.CHAPTER 2
Getting in Touch with Your Spirituality
You can discover and unleash your inner strength — your soul.
I am — and you are — a soul. Living a spiritually guided life is about recognizing, first and foremost, that you are a soul, just as you are a mind and a body. The soul is the spiritual aspect of being human. It is real, and it exists alongside the multi-dimensional spirit realm. We all have the opportunity to cultivate a spiritually guided relationship with angels, spiritual guides, or whomever we connect with. Spiritual guidance is available to all of us. Now.
Struggle, unhappiness, fear, and illnesses in the form of mental and physical dis-ease are all blessings in disguise. They are messages that we have stepped away from our true happiness and soulful path. They are opportunities for us to heal and remember who we are. The recognition of our true nature as souls — learning to accept that we are, first and foremost, souls — closes the gap on separation and aloneness and brings us back in touch with our spirituality and our connection to angels and spirit guides. We gain strength when we review our inner resistance to becoming well and building a strong foundation for creating a spiritually guided life.
We Are Not Alone
Those who live spiritually guided lives make conscious decisions to tap into the spiritual realm for guidance.
There are three planes of existence: mental, physical, and spiritual. On the spiritual plane there is a whole host of spiritual beings available to help each and every one of us. But just like the physical plane of existence, the spiritual plane is populated with both savoury and unsavoury characters. Tapping into the spiritual plane requires stepping into a new dimension, and with that comes the need to understand which entities to call on and how to work with spiritual guides.
First of all, you need to know that everything is differentiated by vibration. Unsavoury characters have low vibrations that don't feel good to us, whereas angels, for example, have very high vibrations — the highest vibrations of all. When you embark on a spiritually guided life, I highly recommend you engage with high-vibrational beings who will love and support you with high-vibrational guidance.
The experience of a personal, one-on-one spiritual relationship with many amazing spiritual guides is available to all of us. There is no worship involved; there is just a spiritual and angelic family all around us to help bring love, peace, and happiness into our lives. It's like having a spiritual board of directors to help guide you through your life.
Let's face it, living here on earth isn't easy sometimes, especially if you're a spiritually sensitive type like me, as I know many of you are. A spiritual team is what every soul needs.
A person living a spiritually guided life is free to explore relationships with spiritual helpers on a personal level, through a personal connection with God, angels, Ganesh, Buddha, Jesus, or whomever the person feels connected to. To even imagine that we all have access to great teachers, prophets, and healers of all spiritual lineages at any time for divine guidance is incredibly liberating. I had been hoping that God, at least, had my back, but to learn there is an entire spiritual realm of helpers on tap was mind blowing.
I was so incredibly happy. There was life beyond the physical, and it was showing itself to me.
My View on Spirituality
Spirituality is a broad concept that involves a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves. It also involves a higher state of consciousness. It's a way of being that involves a conscious connection to ourselves, our relationships, and our environment. It is the search for the meaning of life as well as a way of living and doing business.
I am spiritual but not religious, which means I was raised a Catholic and have always believed in God, Jesus, Mary, and other Christian-based deities, but I don't believe in organized religion. I believe in God. I believe God to be eternal love, wisdom, guidance, energy, and oneness — the all-loving Universe. Personally, I just feel the energy of God.
The great ascended masters who have walked the earth as teachers and prophets such as Hermes, Jesus, Mary, Buddha, Ganesh, Horus, Merlin, Pythagoras, and Aristotle, are actually all around us in spirit all the time, as are normal, everyday people, energies and entities. We are literally surrounded by spiritual beings.
So, no matter who you are, these beings are available to come and be with you at all times and stay with you and guide you through your life.
How do I know this? I can see them, and I work in partnership with them as I invite them into my life for guidance, love, and support. I call on them, and they come. Not only did I work with my spiritual guides to heal my family, but the archangels have been working with me in my practice for years.
All of these entities operate from the spiritual realm, and they are multidimensional. That means that you and I and a billion other people can be working with Jesus or Buddha at the same time, and we all will have that entity's full attention. This is the benefit of being multidimensional, and it is available to you too.
