ARE YOU SURE?
My pilgrimage to the Holy Land has come and gone, but the insights and lessons I gained during those two weeks will remain with me as evidence of so much we feel and know, even if we cannot see it. I wasn’t sure what experiences I’d have, I was open to anything.
I’m not one to normally share a room when I travel, but Life deemed that I would on this trip and what I witnessed as a result, was extraordinary. On the third night I awoke in the middle of the night and opened my eyes. My room mate was fast asleep on her bed ,when I saw her spirit, yes, her ethereal other, slowly move from her body to a sitting position. She was travelling outside her body, often referred to as astro travelling. Though I had read about this phenomenon, I had never witnessed it until now. It took me a few days to finally share this with her, and being open to such things, I knew she’d more likely accept it than be frightened by it.
My other memorable experience occurred in the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth. I walked in and a few steps later I became so emotionally overwhelmed that I could not control the tears that flowed, try as I may. This lasted the whole time I was in the church and did not stop until I walked out, some twenty minutes later. I visited many other holy places on this trip but no other had this effect on me. I felt an overwhelming mix of feelings and emotions that I am at a loss to explain the why of it. My reasoning is that this is where it all began. For Christians, when the Angel announced to Mary that she would be the mother of Jesus (if she was willing), marked the beginning of Christianity.
These two experiences would have on their own made the trip worthwhile for me, yet the biggest insight I received had nothing to do with ‘other worldly’ things, but with living in the here and now. Given how I came to say ‘yes’ to this pilgrimage and the circumstances which played out in the process, I came to an undeniable conclusion that it’s our feelings that take precedence in any decision or response we are asked to make. While I have said this before, because I believed it to be true, I can now confirm this without an iota of a doubt, with a wholehearted ‘knowing’ that it is so. I’m not asking you to believe this, but I encourage you to check it out for yourself. Test it out, please.
There’s a difference between feeling and emotion, a marked difference in fact. Where emotion is reactionary, feeling is deep within our core. Feeling is what can settle in our cells and make significant changes in our lives, for good or not so good. Feeling is the active element that draws to us all that we desire most in life, whether we are conscious of it or not. For this reason I ask you to pay closer attention to your feelings, because they are the creators of your life. Knowingly or absentmindedly, we create. As you may be aware, much of what I have come to know is from my love, study and in vivo research of Number, however, I must also tell you that I get guidance from my team on the other side as to ways in which I can work with numbers to gain a deeper understanding of Life and our part in it. My intention is always to discover and utilise ways in which I can best help myself and those who seek my help to better understand the enormous power we within us. Power to co create with Divinity Itself and how to align ourselves with this power for good, for success, for love, peace and joy.
And so when next you need an answer, listen to your feelings when you say ‘yes.’ Listen to whether it’s a love based ‘yes’ or a fear based ‘yes.’ A wholehearted ‘yes’ or a ‘why wouldn’t I want to, yes.’ Can you sense the hidden guilt in the ‘why wouldn’t I want to?’ It can mean the difference between walking and living your Destiny via a smoother and far less stressful path. I urge you to take the time to do this for yourselves. If you don’t deserve your own time, who does? Nobody deserves your most honest and sincere attention more than you.
Consider that our emotions might deceive us. Our intellect might convince us. But our feelings will convey the best option or response available to us in that moment, at any given time. As for me, I have decided that from now on, unless I can say a wholehearted ‘yes’ to something, regardless of how enticing it looks or how wonderful it is, or how much I think it will help me, I shall say a quietly confident ‘not today, thanks.’
