Restrain that which has no place in a creative spiritual life, that which does not advance you along your path of heart. Do let go of excesses, as well as of limitations; those things that overtake you or keep you from reaching your potential. With all things in balance it’s so much easier to see the right path before you, to correctly read the signs that come to guide you and to know for sure what is the right thing to do when the time comes to act. With all things within in good balance then all things without will also be in good balance. Allow your spirit its freedom in this manner and your progress will be assured.
To advance is to let go of old ideas of the self and others, to free the mind and release the spirit to new ideas and new experiences. To advance spiritually is to be open, with open mind and heart, to the play of life all around you, to the changes and the synchronicities that every day show you that you have the opportunity to change and grow within the self.
Be open and receptive to those changes, and be alert to the signs that come to guide you. Notice what’s happening in your world, and be open to the call that comes to show you the way.
Let the power of love cure you of your ills in body and spirit and advance you along your path, for is not your sole, and soul, purpose to advance? And is not love the means by which to do so? Love in its infinite power wishes only to aid you on your journey, showing you what it is and what it can do, for it is the power you seek, the riches you embrace and the all that you sense waiting. Love is the means by which to learn compassion for self and other, and the healing balm that will change you and your world. Love is the answer.
In a recent channeling, through Jan, Jeanne assured us that spirit forces are presently heavily engaged in influencing life upon planet Earth. She encouraged that we remain positive and continue to work on our own spiritual advancement. And truly, how does one spiritually advance?
First of all, we are all spirit beings, currently attached to our wondrous human cocoon. We are surrounded by spirit beings who have released their fleshly garments and continue to live their lives on finer material planes. Continued evolution on those planes requires that one fully square with the truths of life lived while in human form. For many spirit beings, this means lives of service and making amends.
Life beyond the physical exists at a much higher vibrational speed, and the method of action is largely mental. Thus, spirits in service to humankind bring positive, encouraging thoughts and inspirations to loved ones or others in need. Spirits are also able to impact electricity and other occurrences in nature. Thus, the synchronicities we experience each day are often spirit messages and affirmations.
Our openness and willingness to receive spirit help directly impacts our contact with spirit forces. A note of caution here. State to the spirit world your intent to only receive support from benevolent spirits. The truth is that many spirit entities who have left human life in the flesh are reluctant to leave human life in the spirit. Practically speaking, this means they remain earthbound in focus, seeking to parasitically continue human experience by attaching to and influencing human behavior.
Spirits at this stage have either failed to realize they have died or simply remain addicted to life in the physical body. They will eventually evolve, when they grow bored of their empty imaginings and are ready to place the light of truth upon their greed, and become helpful spirits.
Ironically, spirits at this stage of narcissism perform a valuable service to their human victims. Spirits could not gain entry into our human life if we didn’t provide them with an opening. That opening is generally our own attachment to unhealthy thoughts and behaviors, our own addictive tendencies.
Often, we employ various defense mechanisms to shield ourselves from the truth of our collusion with excessive or unhealthy behaviors. These blind spots open the door to hungry spirits impacting our thoughts, moods and behaviors. These heightened states of acting out also offer consciousness and conscience the opportunity to become aware and take responsibility for our hidden compulsions.
These aha moments illustrate the ‘service’ provided by even malevolent spirits to help us spiritually advance. With increased awareness we can choose to align our thoughts and actions with right action. The less we burden our spirits with ignorance, confusion and lies, while in human form, the freer our spirits will be to advance at our time of passing.
As spirit beings, while in physical life, we are also able to access and develop the power of thought to advance spiritually now. Thoughts are the commodity, the currency of spirit life. Imagination is the master builder of life beyond the physical body. However, though densely veiled, imagination is the prime mover in physical life as well.
Our freedom to imagine health and loving support to all human beings impacts their feelings and decisions. In my imagination I can send love and healing energy to the most recalcitrant of beings on earth. In so doing, I both lighten my personal load of negativity and spiritually advance to embrace the equanimity of every moment and every being.
Take advantage of spirit openings by asking for help from beneficent spirits, by facing the truths and lessons brought through malevolent spirits and by exercising the spirit power of positive thought and imagination. See what happens!
