Philosophy through one of my spirit guides.
Your spiritual development is in your hands, it is too easy to lose sight of the infinite possibilities of working with spirit, in doing this you neglect the first principle of your spiritual development, the development of self. To overcome this you must be aware that your spiritual progress can be affected by your over eagerness to communicate with the spirit world.
If we go back to the basic principle that our spiritual development is tied into our higher self and if we fail to communicate and develop this quality of ourselves, then the overall objective of our pathway here will be obscured. Our personal development is developing our personality in so doing you give spirit the opportunity to assist you, but if you ignore that side of you to follow the pathway of spiritual communication without the spiritual development of self then your spiritual growth will be stunted and your communication with spirit restricted to a lower level of development.
You can develop your connection to your higher self and to the godhead by meditation, this route is available to all by developing a simple meditation using a breathing technique and allowing yourself to become at one with the light within, and expanding the light to connect with the surrounding light of all life, for example connect with the ground, the sea, nature, the animal kingdom, humanity and then expand out into the universe to connect with other worlds the stars, and ultimately the divine source of all life.
Your spiritual companions desire to assist you to develop yourself first so that they may work closer with you in cooperation this teamwork will ensure that you complete your spiritual development of self, this self-expansion will mean your connection to spirit will be stronger for your future work.
Sometimes when the spirit world first makes contact it is to ensure you aware of their existence and to reassure you that life is continuous. Spiritual contact has many purposes but the desire from the spirit is too awakened you from your slumber of material life, and so that you can use the knowledge that you will be gaining through contact with spirit to assist and reassure others to develop as a true spiritual being.
Of course, one of the first hurdles is to allay fears generated through teachings on the earth that contact with the spirit world is unnatural and dangerous and could lead to working with forces of negativity.
This can be overcome in time when it is shown that when you work with love no harm will ever come to you, remember we create our own negativity or to say humanity creates its own negativity through fear and ignorance and through the avoidance of dealing with our true spiritual development
One last thought, you have brought with you the infinite power of spirit including access to the knowledge and wisdom of the universe and the universal mind or the universal consciousness whatever you would wish to call it. What is your hurry if you develop too quickly you could miss out on the divine pleasure of connection with the universal consciousness every day.
The Master Jesus stated “everything I can do you can do and more”.
You have choices, always you have free will, it would be pointless to restrict your choices by creating restrictive rules. The universal law is the law of cause and effect.
Simplicity in all things.
We cannot teach you anything you do not already know, it is a sense of awakening knowledge held in trust for you so that when you are ready it will expand and grow from within, for many of us our sense of spiritual awakening lies dormant because we believe it is our imagination and not inspiration, but spirit used our imagination and our higher self-uses our imagination to inspire us, to guide us to greater heights, after all our scientists, writers, painters, and philosophers use their imagination in their work. It is up to us to recognise our spiritual potential by taking the time for ourselves. The first rule of working with spirit is to recognise that you are a spirit, and spirit connections are made through our sensory perception it is the easiest way for spirit to communicate and the simplest way is through feelings.
There is nothing new, the message is continuous and repetitive we would not have to repeat it if you would only listen, you will have heard it many times.
This is why this is familiar to you because many are reiterating the same spiritual message.
Just because it is being repeated does not mean it is not valid, the validity of the message is in the sense that it makes to you, if it does not make sense to you then you are not ready to hear the message or the message is not for you.

Levels of Consciousness, an awareness of being aware.
So let’s keep this simple, and decide for now that there are only three levels of consciousness.
Let’s name the first one the subconscious, the second one the conscious mind, and the third one the cosmic consciousness.
The Universe becomes a storehouse for all vibrations and from the very beginning of time holds all the answers in a web of energy that is woven throughout time and space.
If we would think of the subconscious as a continuous link between the cosmic consciousness and the conscious mind where we are receiving and transmitting information continuously, depending I guess on a level of understanding, this information would affect not only our well-being, but also the energy around us. As we think so we are!
So the subconscious mind is continually interacting with the cosmic consciousness and the conscious mind on a level that we are not aware of, could this be where all our higher ideas come from?
Consider this, if you are receiving information from the cosmic consciousness on whatever level you are connected to, would you not consider it your responsibility to raise your awareness and your energy vibration, recreating your positivity to such that the level of information that you might receive would then be the highest vibration within that energy spectrum. The mind and the brain are very different, our brain works with our body on an autonomic level controlling the various functions of our body so that we can continue our lives without having to think about breathing or ordering various organs in our body to function in a particular way. Our minds and our brains are so different when we pass back to the spirit world our brain ceases to function it is part of our physical body and our mind continues to function as it is part of our soul.
The conscious mind this is where we think, we think, not being aware of how our subconscious mind is feeding the conscious mind.
Imagine the conscious mind as a collator and organiser of ideas, where we learn to communicate not only with one another, also with the cosmic consciousness or the creator of all that is.
The conscious mind is also where we can take charge of our own thoughts, taking responsibility for what we think, create, and do. The conscious mind is continually radiating out our thoughts as energy back into the universe and on some level affecting our environment and altering our aura and the aura of our planet. As we meditate, plan, seek change, desire, rebel, love, hate and destroy or build within our thoughts so each of these emotions are radiated from us and some can negate our very existence. This precipitates our need to take charge of our thoughts or at least the process of our thoughts and directing them in such a way as to create positively an aura of expectancy through unconditional love. Everything we say and do, the power of language, the power of thought is part of the abundant energy that we transmit into the universe and once transmitted can never be erased!
The cosmic consciousness is the energy that binds all together, connects all life, is part of all life, and is continually seeking to adjust and rebalance where possible. In saying this I am reminded that the cosmic consciousness is a benign energy it has no agenda it responds to all the energies that are created from all the various life forms not only on our planet but also within the universe. Humanity has but one goal to stop thinking selfishly and to set itself free to understand its responsibilities as a spiritual being with a body. Most would not understand that they are spirit with a body and their concepts of the Creator that which they call God means that they think within a small confine of their own making. Many would tell you that they consider that God is within everything and then go on to destroy or manipulate the very being that they say they love, life itself. The creator has no agenda, it does not ask to be worshipped, it does not need anything from us, and it is omnipotent. Why is it then that we feel the need to refer everything back to the creator, blaming the creator for all our disappointments and mishaps when we continually disallow its very existence by the way we treat ourselves and our environment? When you finally understand that the creator needs nothing from you, then you might begin to understand why your life is the way it is and stop blaming others including the creator when life does not appear to go according to plan. Many years ago I heard the most amazing philosophy, “When it’s all going wrong, that’s when it’s all going right”. As human beings we have been taught to expect the creator “God” to change things, we have been taught to pray to ask the creator to bring us wealth, happiness, and good health. As a spiritual being, we have forgotten that we are in charge and the creator responds to us, not the other way round. This may seem an alien concept to you because you first have to learn and take responsibility for your own thoughts and recognise that is part of the creating process. Once you have learnt that you can create change then you will know that you are now in charge of your own destiny. We need to be mindful when we fail to make decisions, maybe allowing fate to take a hand, again I quote “from all thoughts everywhere” fate. Our failure to make decisions allows the thoughts of others to take charge of our life’s path and in doing so we disempower ourselves.
The universe is an ever expanding and unfolding energy, a benign force, please feel free to look up the word benign.
The universe acts as a balance and reacts across all creation. Everything that we create whether it be physical action or emotional thought is permanent, it can be neither withdrawn, changed or altered. When we create a physical resemblance of our thoughts i.e. we might design and build a house, in doing so we have followed the thought process from the very beginning to its ultimate conclusion. At some time in the future, the house may be pulled down but the energy that was used to design create and build it is still there, its permanent. So you could say that nothing changes everything stays the same but of course we know this is not true, we are within a universe of ever-changing energy where nature itself changes and rebuilds constantly as we do. Somewhere along our life’s pathway there comes a moment of realisation, for most people! For some, it comes in good time allowing them to rebalance their lives, create a semblance of order and possibly leave a legacy of positivity that will help others to understand their responsibilities in life, for others, it appears to be beyond their grasp maybe a bridge too far!
You would think that each of us is born with a sense of right and wrong, but what if there is no right or wrong!
The essence of right and wrong are based on the wisdom and teachings we have received from our forebears, so what if all of this is based on how we handle each experience or our attitude regarding that situation, could it be our determination to live with what our conscience tells us will enable us to adjust correctly to whatever challenges we have in life.
I know I will be castigated by some whose strong beliefs are based on teachings that have been passed down through the ages, but please consider that humanity seems to pick and chose within each set of these wisdom writings what suits their lifestyle and possibly adapt their religious beliefs to suit.
I would challenge all beliefs, for some it would appear are born with little or no conscience at all, while others have that intense deep conscious understanding that they must forever take responsibility for their own actions.
The law that oversees all reality is the only law that our higher spiritual selves can truly acknowledge, and that is the “law of cause and effect”.
I know that there will be some within the spiritual movement that would challenge that, saying that they can see individuals that would manifestly get away with all of their actions while they are here on the earth.
While this would seem to create injustice, no soul can escape the universal law and no matter what they might have sown while they are here on the earth the “universe” the creator of all that is has allowed this and at some point, on our life’s journey it will rebalance itself.
At this juncture, it would be appropriate to quote Edmund Burke “Evil only prospers when good men or woman do nothing” I have adjusted this to encompass both sexes.
Life experiences often repeat themselves, we might call them lessons however our ability to adjust through experience is controlled by the very nature of our being and so sometimes we might not realise that we are going through a very similar energy changes brought upon by our continued negligence of our own thought process.
Your free will is an imperative part of your journey, some would say that this is a relative free will controlled by circumstance in their environment, if this is so how is it that there are those who through their strength, determination or personality can completely change their life’s purpose and in doing so often help others to do the same by their example.
Possibly, the only way that we can re-address this is to counterbalance our thought process. A simple analogy would be, I dislike my neighbour because! I like my neighbour because! And hopefully, those two thoughts will counterbalance one another.
Wayne Dyer, Inspirational writer and speaker.
The first step to learning to manifest your reality is you must create a new concept of yourself: as an infinite spiritual being having a temporary human experience. The I that I use to describe myself is not so obsessed that he insists in staying in one body. In fact, that I that is me finally recognises that ancient spiritual truth spoken by Divine masters since antiquity: None of us are really doing anything, rather we (our bodies) are merely being done. This I that you use to describe yourself isn’t the physical form that you occupy and take with you everywhere. The I is your higher self, changeless and real.
You become what you think about. If you think about giving, as God does, the Universe will provide. If you think about things being taken away, then that’s what you’ll attract. If you want to manifest your dreams, you must become a master at monitoring the thoughts and feelings you are aligning yourself with. Your thoughts and feelings become your reality, so become adept at observing the thoughts and feelings you are creating for yourself.
Do not let your imagination be restricted to the current conditions of your life, or what I call “being obsessed with what is.” Keep reminding yourself that everything that you’ve believed has gotten you to precisely the point where you are now. This is a rather persistent theme in my work, so it bears repeating here: if you want to elevate your life and become a manifester, then you have to change what you’ve believed to be true about yourself that has landed you where you are. The sentiments of This is reality, This is just the way things are, There is nothing that I can do to change what is, and the like are pernicious thoughts that will taint and defile your great gift of I am that I am, which is your Divine inheritance from your creator.
The words of all the great spiritual teachers encourage us to see ourselves as unlimited and to know that even the least among us has the divine power of God available at every moment of our lives. I know that you, if you practice studiously, can begin to manifest for yourself virtually anything that you are capable of conceiving in your mind. You must unplug from your conditioning and know in that private space behind your eyes that you can and will take on the challenge of manifesting your destiny. It is my belief that you are never given the power to dream without the equivalent power to manifest that dream and make it your physical reality.
