We are all one in God, our eternally loving Father, and because of that inviolable truth we are — each and every one of us, every sentient being ever created — guaranteed and assured of our place, our seat, our home in God’s everlasting Kingdom. Deep within ourselves every one of us knows and experiences that security, that certainty, and the Love in which it envelops us. Those seemingly experiencing life in the illusion also know it, but due to the limits and restrictions it places on awareness and consciousness, access to that knowledge can be difficult to achieve.

However, by taking time out regularly, in quietness and alone, you can allow yourselves to create a space in which you can relax, listen to, and hear your spiritual guides. For some it is an intuitive sense of the right words or actions to take dropping into your minds to ease, modify, or resolve issues that have concerned you. For others it can be a very definite experience of “hearing” the wise counsel of one or even a number of your guides as in a conversation. Others may find themselves writing down a dissertation of great wisdom and timeliness that they know does not come from their normal conscious human mind. But in whatever form you experience this communication it is immediately apparent to you that it is something very different from the workings of your normal egoic mind.

Every sentient being has access to the wisdom of the spiritual realms; it is just a question of asking for guidance and then being quiet and allowing it to flow into the clear space that you have made available for that purpose. When you do this for the first time it is very likely that your ego mind will be listening too, ready to rubbish whatever flows in, suggesting to you that you are imagining it, that you are making it up, and it may then try to persuade you to cease and desist because, in its anxious and fearful opinion, what you are doing is insane.

I would suggest that you write down whatever comes through, without any attempt at editing or correction, until you reach a point where you feel you need to say “Enough.” Then take a break, because when you are receiving guidance or guided messages from those in the spiritual realms your personal energy field joins with theirs, and you may experience this as tiredness, stress, or fatigue. This is normal, and you will probably find that you cannot spend as long at this kind of writing as you could if you were just writing personal things in your journal.

Put your writing aside without re-reading it. Leave it for at least a couple of hours, maybe even a couple of days, then, when you feel unstressed, peaceful, go back and re-read it. It is likely that you will be most pleasantly surprised and uplifted by what you have written. It may differ quite substantially from what you think you remember writing.

It is certainly possible that your ego will have managed to sabotage your communication channel so that you only get a few words or phrases that are obviously from a wiser source than the one to which you are accustomed — your logical, reasoning, human mind — or you may get nothing at all. But if you persist, instead of being persuaded by your ego that you are wasting your time or are unworthy to receive your own personal spiritual guidance, and hold the intent to do so, then you will receive it. So, if your first few attempts do not result in wise guidance or a channeled message, do not give up, because you all have loving, compassionate guides waiting eagerly to communicate with you. You just have to practice holding that quiet unruffled mind space free from the distractions with which the ego will try to fill it, and into which they can “drop” their guidance or message which is personally directed to you.
