On Death and Dying

The Buddhists believe that:

All human life is as a person getting into a boat—on a voyage. However, the vessel has one small hole at the bottom, giving the journey an inevitable end.

This belief is not tragic, but authentic. It is realistic and conventional. The boat of human life will eventually sink. It has a beginning, middle, and end. It will eventually end when the journey is over or when we have learned enough. What everyone must accept is that:

the journey is measured.

We don’t know if:

  • our spirit had decided ahead of time how long we would stay on Earth as human—in third density bodies,
  • there is a Great power that decides for us how long we stay, or
  • if a collective consciousness decides together.

We do know, however, that the journey ceases… for some at an old age, and for others, it seems, before it has barely begun.

I recently have had a few friends make their transitions. Many I have known in this human body have gone from this world to the next. Some much too young and others from illness, and yet others have given up the body well after their physical selves had ceased to function properly. It seemed that some people have simply “willed” their existence to stay a bit longer than they intended.

I have strong inclinations about the process and have learned great lessons each time I’m faced with a death of a close friend or family member. One thing is for certain: The suffering seems to be diminishing, as I remind myself that he or she who has passed is now in a more blissful place, in my estimation, if they were on a positive path on Earth. Perhaps, some will move on to another dimension or to another existence somewhere else to learn more lessons, lessons that they didn’t quite get here on Earth. In each case, though, I’m the one who will miss his or her presence on my Earth Journey. He or she who has passed on is already growing and moving forward to a different dimension.

What I have learned recently is a great lesson:

  • When someone makes his or her transition, their presence in your life doesn’t diminish, it grows, if you’re watching and meditating;
  • When someone passes on, he or she can become your guardian in the Spirit, giving you sage advice while you dream (at least, for awhile);
  • When someone’s body ceases to function on Earth, his or her Spirit moves forward onto a paradigm unbeknownst to us; and mostly
  • When you let go of your physical body, you expand into a dimension that has many choices—both positive and negative.

Perhaps, you know this already. I just wanted to share my experience, incase you are grieving over the loss of someone close. If you have recently lost a dear friend or family member, I’m knowing this for you:

The clear choice in life is to always let go of fear. When you do, amazing things happen in your physical, mental, and spiritual lives. As you feel your intense emotions, know that a gentle voice calls you to resolution with this soul who has passed on. You were never meant to spend the rest of your life with him or her. You had a journey and a lesson plan. Now it is over. It was intense, wonderful, joyful, hard, but always real.

Now, what is yours to do is reflect on it for as long as you need.

Be with yourself. Let go and be quiet until you gain the strength you need to move forward.

Namaste.

Opening One Door, While Another Closes

How many times in your life have you let a door close, while you were trying desperately to open another? I’m not saying that the door you were pursuing opened. You simply lost the opportunity for the other opportunity because you were so head strong about opening the door that you had been consistently trying to pry open.

You probably thought this blog was going to be about new opportunity. Well, it is. The subject matter is a little different, though. This blog is about missing opportunity, even though you’re praying and hoping for it, because you can’t get your mind out of your own ego and let Spirit take you to your desired destiny.

There are many paths to the same success. What you have to realize is that not every path is for you. As an actor, for instance, there is only one role for each character. If you are not cast as that character, this is not a missed opportunity. It is an opportunity that you took but were not offered. If you prayed that you would get that role, this doesn’t mean that God doesn’t answer prayer. Perhaps, 1000 people prayed for that same role. How would God decide upon which son or daughter this role belonged to without playing favorites?

The truth in the matter is that Spirit is more concerned about what you learn each day rather than what role you’re cast in or what job you did or didn’t get.

When I get a role in a play, I can be sure that there is a higher calling involved. Something vast and unknown is hidden in my hiring. I know this with certainty. Perhaps, that’s why don’t fret when I don’t get offered a job that I thought I was perfect for.

Maybe, I didn’t need to meet that director. Maybe the person I was supposed to share love with that day was a friend in need. Maybe there is a better opportunity for that day. Or, maybe, I’m supposed to rest that day.

All of these are perfect options for Spirit, who knows the vastness of your purpose.

As you give your heart to the One perfect mind of God, you may also need to give your will a twist to the ear. You must kindly, gently, but sometimes with a little gusto, tell yourself that the main goal of life on Earth is not to be the richest man alive, the handsomest, the most beautiful woman, having the best clothes or relationships. No. Your goal is to be used by Spirit to help polarize the Earth for the coming New Age—for the shift into a more heavenly space here on this Earth, where the lion lays with the lamb and peace fills each day like the sun that shines.

Rather, think on this peace,and your heart will rest today.

How to Gain Spiritual Insight

The question I am asked most often as a spiritual counselor and life coach is:

Can someone who doesn’t normally have any spiritual gifts, actually develop them? Will I ever be able to hear from God or Spirit?

My answer is: How committed to the process are you?

I wish I could be more definite in my findings. However, in all the years that I have been teaching and coaching, I have found that most people who are sincere and have an authentic desire to find a connection to Spirit God, actually do find what they look for. They may not find it exactly how they thought they would. But, I promise you, if they have been seeking to find answers, they will gain insight. If they practiced silence in meditation or in yoga or in long walks in the woods, they have heard from Spirit in a way that is perfect for them.

There is no one particular way that Spirit speaks to us. Personally, I get very clear images, insights, and intuition. I often hear a voice that specifically tells me things. I am compelled at times to do specific actions or talk to certain people with such specificity that the clarity with which I receive is hard to deny that it is not an elevated knowledge trying to communicate.  What you or I call, matters not to me.

As I have watched my students over the years develop spiritually, even they find it hard to believe they can operate on their own accord: pray without help, ask for advice and get an answer, and find the right words to pray. But they do. They grow just like anyone student would who puts in the hours and the study.

However, just because a student becomes liberated from the need of a teacher, which is the ultimate purpose of teaching, this does not mean that we all don’t need a friend, partner, or a mentor to share our divine prayers.

Getting together to pray is special because “when two or more are gathered, there I AM,” the Bible says. I believe specifically that prayers are exponentially potent when more people gather to pray for the exact same thing without fear. This kind of prayer is a special kind of gift. Many people have seen miracles happen as a result.

The U.S. experienced this when 9-11 happened. The entire country stopped for days, grieved, and prayed. It was a spiritual power few of us have ever felt before. We could feel the world sending positive thoughts towards us. People were kinder to each other, more loving, and often completely different than they had been before.

This is an example of experiencing the power of Spirit. What anyone needs to do, however, after an expression of Spirit like this happens is to keep moving forward. If he or she wants to maintain the same kind of insight and a powerful spiritual feeling always, they must grow from every experience. Do we suddenly stop praying because we no longer feel the pain of the death of so many people at once? Do we stop looking for answers about why things happen and retreat for the asking? Or do we continue to go inward to seek what expresses itself outward?

Yes, yes, yes! The above paragraph holds the primary keys to spiritual growth.

Stay with me in the next few blogs. I’m going to expound much more about different areas of spiritual growth and spiritual gifts.
