“ The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else
than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect,
in human meekness and human responsibility.” Vaclav Havel
When interacting with clients many people try to understand how the metaphysical world works. Especially if they are the type of person known as an analytical type. When I started working for my Masters in Animal Science, I had to learn that you can’t just come up with a study and say, “hey, this sounds good, let’s do it.” You had to do a literature review, and see the studies that preceded yours. You looked at the research that was done, and were encouraged to see it like a wall, adding one brick out further at a time. I saw this in medicine too: they have something called “standard of care” which means if a physician does something that is NOT the most commonly used therapy, he opens himself to a lawsuit if that patient does not get better or passes. All of these tactics take a perfectly functioning intuitive system and SHUTS IT DOWN. There are no “hunches” no gut feelings, just the looking at a situation within commonly seen normalcy.
This broke me of making deductions on my own, For the twenty plus years I was in pharmaceuticals, not only did I use studies to show efficacy, side effects, safety, I did not make my own personal deductions on these issues, in fact I was trained not to, to follow the studies, however heartless they may have been.
When I found that I had the intuitive and spiritual powers that I do, I was told by my guides that I could either “understand” what I had the power to do, or DO it, there wasn’t time for both. My choice was an easy one: I did not want to be like the professors who look at intuitives and poke and prod, make statements and pronouncements, I actually wanted to help people. When you channel a woman’s passed on child, that changes lives, it HEALS. That is an amazing gift I am given, to use, not study.
I agree with many of you though. Wow. Is this real? Can I trust it? My yardstick for such questions has been simple. “Does that make sense? Is that true for me?” I reached this work because of chronic pain. Unlike any pill the doctors gave me, any treatment physical therapy provided, the path I took for spirituality healed my pain. So I ask you- do you want to stay on the well-lighted path, the one that has been “proven”? Or do you want to heal? Do you want to answer the longings of your heart?
Anyone who has seen my artwork knows that I am about the heart. I collect heart stones, make necklaces with hearts on them, use heart clasps, and sell a wide variety of silver hearts. I make ceramic plates splashed with large red hearts, also bowls and plates shaped like hearts.
“Everything you desire and every prayer that you seek comes as a result of opening your heart to both sending and receiving love. Your heart is a gateway…the more you allow yourself to love, the greater depth and meaning your life holds.” Doreen Virtue on Jesus
The heart is the entrance, the beginning of the mystical path.A Shaman I know had us touch the area of our heart with our hand while we chanted in ceremony circles. It helped to open up the heart he assures me.
Having been a fan of Rumi’s since high school, I found my way to the mystical Sufi’ ceremonies. I love the fact that Sufism is the “way of the open human heart: and that the religion believes that the energy to heal & connect comes thru the heart. I have attended Sufi events. Most of the worship is in Arabic, and the words flow over me like a healing balm.
“Religions are founded by what mystics say when they come back: but what the mystics say is not the same as what happened to them” Ram Dass
A true mystic, I no longer am “just” a Presbyterian, but look at the holy books of all religions for what has meaning to me. I love that Ram Dass’s Guri tells us to “Meditate like Jesus” even though he was a Buddhist. Ram Dass is Jew who converted to a Buddhist.
From Ram Dass comes my benchmark on treating others: “do what you must do with another person, but never kick them out of your heart”. I hear this statement when I or someone I am talking to has been treated badly, and wants to make the person who did such behavior PAY. I have found that now, after years of me being upset that someone has “screwed me over” and wanting to take my pound of flesh, this thought fills my head and I hear an angel say, “walk away. It is not your fight”. When I hear that, I am reminded that if I really want something to be brought to justice, I am to turn it over to God, have the instance looked into at his big desk, and prosecuted by Universal Law enforcement. That we as spiritual beings come here with free will, and to experience choice. That means that God and the Angels will not interfere with your right to chose. People ask: “how did God allow that to happen?” When the real question is how did people allow that to happen? God only becomes involved when we ask for his help.
For know that each soul constantly meets its own self. No problem may be run away from. Meet it now. Edgar Cayce
Most days, I wear several Turquoise hearts. I have found that since Turquoise is both sacred and protective, it helps me stay in my space when I start to feel claustrophopic. I have also seen Turquoise protective of my voice, giving me that power to state my truth. I find many women that have had their voice “taken away” somehow gravitate towards Turquoise subconsciously. It is much more than a pretty stone. Put turquoise in the shape of a heart, and it becomes a talisman, a powerful protector of spirit.
The ego is a strong master. It will tell you to use your head, that the emotions put out by the heart cannot be trusted, cannot be followed. Every human has come here with a purpose: to experience free will by making our own choices. Our heart, our emotions, that is the connection to the spirit, the soul. Somewhere along the line you have to take a stand: to follow the dogma of the current day, or to create your own path, follow your heart. Love feed us, modern day dogma starves us. You can listen to the “drunken monkey mind” but the beat of the heart, calling you to love, will not cease.
“The light which shines in the eye is really the light of the heart. The light which fills the heart is the light of God which is pure and separate from the light of intellect and sense.” Rumi
