Guidance and Our Perception

Disclaimer; in talking with Guidance what’s written here is perhaps a murky three dimensional attempt to explain an elegant multidimensional concept which is beautiful in its simplicity.  It’s more than this yet being confined to using 3D words generated from a 3D intellect in an effort to portray the functionality of it this is the best picture I have to offer.

 

We have many preconceived ideas about how spiritual perception and telepathy works and the chances are a great deal of them are misperceptions.  I know I’ve had (and may still have) some of my own.

As much as we’d like to think we can perceive anything we want without limit this is not so.  Our perception comes through the Pineal and Pituitary gland from our own higher consciousness of which our Guidance is part of so for simplification we’ll just say Guidance.  The part about being from / through our guidance is important to remember.  We don’t just perceive anything and everything out there we choose.  We’re given access to what we’re prepared to understand and a little more, it’s up to us if we choose to perceive it at all.

There’s a great pool of understanding in all of creation which contains infinite information yet we will not be given access to what is beyond our capacity to comprehend.  We each have access to a limited portion of it based on what we understanding.  As we grow wiser our portion expands encompassing what was previously beyond our comprehension or greater details are available to us about what we’ve already learned something about.  The shallow end of the pool is where we stay while we’re in physical bodies until we’re well on our way to finding our Mastery.  At that time we venture into the intermediate area.  Primarily the reason for this is the vast complexity of information available verses our limited perception to comprehend it.  We’re not equipped to fathom the great majority of all that is.  Our Higher-self monitors us giving full access to what we’re prepared to understand and to what is on the edge of our understanding allowing us to learn and expand into it creating greater awareness.  In this we gain access to what was beyond our understanding, a.k.a. gaining Wisdom.

We have both a spiritual aspect and an intellectual portion of our consciousness.  These two must work together as what we perceive requires some level of relationship to our three dimensional existence which is presided over by the intellect.  Our Intellect uses past 3D experience to construct a comparative database of “acceptable” truth.  We use this with every new experience as a point of reference relating it to what we’ve already experienced.  Since we perceive in terms of what we understand we cannot perceive what we don’t know about yet.  We can perceive what we don’t fully understand if we have enough pieces of the puzzle to work with.  It would serve no useful purpose attempting to perceive what is beyond our experience since we have nothing to compare it with.  Without a point of reference we’re like a fish out of water completely out of our element.  The most important thing to know about this is we each have a different understanding so as a reflection of this what is available for each of us to perceive is also different.

Since Guidance monitors our perception there are times when Guidance will “stacking the perception deck” giving us just the perception we need to accomplish what’s in our highest good even if that perception was incorrect.  When the Divine plan calls for us to be somewhere or do something important Guidance will do what they can to assist us so we’ll take the correct action needed.  This happens so often it’s been called “doing the right thing for the wrong reason.”

As far as telepathy is concerned, at one time the common consensus seemed to be the universe was one big party line and anyone could tap in at any time to everything.  This is so far from how it really works it defies comparison.  Our higher consciousness directs everything from who we connect with to what the content is.  The higher good is involved in this so we won’t say what others aren’t ready to accept which would interrupt the Divine Plan.  Even if we were to attempt it what the other person hears has been changed without our knowing it.  This also applies to what we hear, it would be adjusted if need be so it seemed they responded to what we said.  This may sound bizarre although the higher good / Divine Plan is of the greatest importance.  Since we all took part in creating the Divine Plan it has to be good it’s just that we don’t remember what it was which is why Guidance helps direct us to follow it so we don’t interfere with the growth of others.

Our ability to perceive is a function of what was learned in our other incarnations along with the desire we have to perceive coupled with how much we practice our perception.  The desire to practice and practicing is so important to all spiritual growth.

How accurately we perceive what is available to us depends largely on our Belief System which filters everything and only allows that which is compliant with our Belief System to get through the filters.  The Belief System is not about True or False, it’s only about what we believe is True or False.  Our Belief System is also an important player in telepathy and especially in channeling.  What we perceive is filtered by the Belief System and changed so it will conform to what we believe is true regardless of its validity.  This alone could/has/may well greatly diminishes any truth or accuracy of what we perceive no matter what it is.

Discernment

Unlike making an intellectual decision, discernment is a spiritual function of assessing validity arrived at by using undefined (spiritual) abilities.  As such there usually isn’t any solid proof only the feeling of correctness or a lack of it which makes discernment subject to our individual interpretation.  It doesn’t matter what the subject is, it could be physical in nature or conceptual our discernment is available to us.  Invoking our discernment engages the higher senses calling for us to be aware of the sometimes subtle feedback of our intuition while at other times the feedback is very strong to a point of being an undeniable response to whatever is going on.

An intellectual decision is usually based in/on logic calling for a comparison with a similar situation and discernment doesn’t which the intellect and the intellectual would call irrational behavior.  Discernment steps beyond logic into an area of uncertainty for many lacking any defined how, what or why which is demanded by logic to function yet with practice we become comfortable using our discernment.  Sometimes discernment is referred to as something rubs us the wrong way, this is the undefined but noticeable discernment bringing up a response for us to be aware of.  This is not to be confused with having a situation “pushing our button” to which we react in a preprogrammed way due to an unresolved past issue.

Not using or being aware of our discernment will cause us to accept false information as truth or be involved in situations which are not in our highest good.

The Puzzle of Life or Our Mosaic of Life

The concept of our life or incarnation being like a puzzle is well known.  A puzzle has intricate shapes combined with a picture so each piece will only fit at one position to form a predetermined completed picture.

In contrast a Mosaic usually deals with much less complex shapes many times being only one color per piece lending itself to our Free Will so many different colors could or would fit into any one spot.  As Creators where each piece will be placed is our choice to form the picture we want.

As we work through our life encountering each learning opportunity presented us we have choices to make about which tile piece would best fit the situation.  Our Guidance is skillful in maneuvering us to where new pieces are afforded us as learning experience.  The more new experiences we gain the greater our choices are as to which we’ll use.  It is always our free will to learn or not to learn new thoughts.  Working directly with our higher aspects assist us to see potentials which otherwise may not have been seen.

The way we live and the outcome of each incarnation is not preordained in any way.  We have the flexibility of free will in every moment to create what we want or all too often create what we don’t want.  The hardest part is seeing we can create what we want if we’d only change our thinking.

Guidance and the Bread Crumbs

This is a story about a game of Life, the original game of life not the one in a box although some say they’re both in a box at least until the choice is made to step outside the box.

This story begins with our adventurers already committed to a segment of the game as they progress through the unseen maze of life.  Each player must accept being in a state of forgetfulness otherwise the game would be too easy to complete.  The complexity of the playing field is a maze of such proportion even this is not seen especially with the players having limited vision and perception.  Having created a playing field with hidden aspects veiled from plain sight makes this a most complicated and challenging game of skill requiring the players to reenter the game a great many times to acquire the considerable understanding which is needed.

The game pieces themselves are well disguised as ordinary objects found in the maze.  To discern them takes close inspection and many times introspection to find any hidden meaning which may be concealed there.  Even then the significance may not be known at first until more puzzle pieces are gathered creating a larger image which then brings an epiphany on some scale.

While our adventurers are busy doing seemingly mundane tasks playing this game has another group which is also participating in the game.  To most players this group is unseen and unsuspected until they’ve progressed through many levels of the game.  Seen or unseen this group is always there attempting to help the players to attain their next goal.  Usually this group is called Guidance.  The rules of our game prohibits Guidance from making any direct contact with the players until the player give permission for Guidance to assist them.  To do this a player must first sense the presence of Guidance using intuition before asking to receive assistance or any direct communication can be established.  This is a catch in the game, a player must know Guidance is there without any outside proof.  Even without a player’s awareness Guidance is still doing as much as possible to arrange game pieces where they can be found, even moving them to a better place when they’ve gone unnoticed.  Without the awareness of Guidance most players do their best in managing the game while they work seemingly alone.

Guidance has a unique advantage in our game as they can see the entire maze knowing where each path will lead our player.  They also have an inventory list of sorts knowing what our players have found or learned and what is still to be located.  With this and the ability to see the entire maze Guidance organizes the journey of our players to the degree each player will allow.

As our players learn to hear the suggestions of Guidance the clues and game pieces become noticed on a greater level due to increased spiritual growth.  As the players put these pieces together they gain a better understanding of what each piece means and a greater vision of the journey becomes known.  All the while as our player work with Guidance to learn, they themselves begin to see the maze for what it is.  Even the game itself becomes more understandable.

Knowing how guidance works is very important to understanding the information offered.  Guidance cannot just come out and give us the answers to most of the questions we would ask.  Some, yes, but for the most part we must figure it out for ourselves, this is the learning process.  For this reason a trail of bread crumbs leads us to the clues we need to better understand the challenge we’re working on.  That said at times we may be misdirected so we’ll take a path we wouldn’t have taken just so we’ll find something important.  Remember, there’s a lot Guidance can’t tell us.  Misdirecting us as to why it’s important to do something may get us to where we need to be for a reason they couldn’t tell us before we get there.  It’s all part of the rules for our game.

Guidance is always leaving a trail of bread crumbs for us to follow.  If we’re aware and looking for these clues it creates a new dynamic in our game of life.  All of this points out something to know, we’re more than a bunch of singular entities on a speck of dust in the enormous universe.  We’re here taking part in a greater plan. We are watched over and assisted at every moment if we’ll only see and accept the help which is offered in unconditional love.  Above all, know that Guidance has an incredible sense of humor.  While we learn who we really are they like to have fun joking with us whenever it’s appropriate.

The Akash and the Ghost of our Past

Our complete journey of every incarnation here on Earth is recorded in full detail.  This record of our journey known as the Akashic record is both what we’ve accomplished and the potentials of what we plan to accomplish in the future.  As such it contains the many treasures of our learning although it’s also contains the resting place or burial ground for, to put it mildly, what is seen as troublesome experiences.  Everything we’ve done is in there.  All the great times we’ve had are there just waiting for us to discover them but then so are all the times we’ve been persecuted or we’ve been on the losing end of a battle, everything is there.

With each of us these stories are different yet we all have them.  The ones which surface the most are the ones we’d rather not remember.  There’s a lesson in the way it works.  In various ways we’re presented with the emotions from those lessor experiences as reminders of our past.  In any case we’re given the emotions usually without any details making it hard to understand why we feel the way we do.  In most cases the nature of these is misunderstood in our attempt to rationalize why we’re feeling them.  Sometimes these are seen as premonitions while at other times these are just projected onto or into a situation we are currently in.  Either way these are all memories of past experiences from other incarnations coming back to revisit us.  In many instances these contain fear or are centered on fear.  Fear is the most debilitating and/or motivating lower emotion we’re presented with in Duality.  Fear can and will stop us from moving forward in our lives simply based on past incarnation emotional memories.

So, how can we tell what these are about?  Spiritual growth is the number one asset in knowing anything, the more we grow the greater insight we gain.  Learning to dismiss the emotions looking at it from a higher perspective we could then take action as opposed to being caught in a “reaction” to the old emotions.

I’ve seen these reaction to the past experiences many times and very often when people have a desire to learn greater spiritual understanding.  In past centuries those with greater spiritual understanding were all too often seen as “evil” and we’ll just say they weren’t treated well.  These experiences have left emotional imprints in our Akash which pop-up to greet us in a most unpleasant way.  These “ghost of our past” will be triggered by a similar experience to replay the old experience as an emotional reminder of what happened then.  These reminders present an opportunity to see them for what they are and to clear them as they no longer serve our higher good.  It’s our choice to decide our path based on the current conditions or be hindered by the ghosts of our past as we reacting to what happened then.

Our Connection

The first thing someone may ask is, a connection to what?  Much like the evolution of internet connections we ourselves have our own connection to the Universe Wide Net.  When the internet started we were using modems working at a snail’s pace where we couldn’t watch a movie without stopping to allow more of the more to be downloaded every two minutes.  Today most of can download a movie in only a few minutes or even less.

Some of us aren’t aware we have a connection while others know it well and use it.  Our connection to “All That Is” continually calls to be upgraded after we find out we have this connection.  A computer is much easier to upgrade than we are but at least we don’t need to order new parts.  Our hardware/pineal gland isn’t replaceable although we can upgrade its software in a manner of speaking since our operating system / consciousness uses software driver we can rewrite these programs.  As we grow spiritually this happen automatically and even faster if we use our connections more often.

The analogy between a computer and our brain is more literal than figurative.  There is much to be understood about how the brain portion of our intellect actually works as a storage device while the Pineal gland acts as a modem to the rest of creation.  While we’re on the subject, the Heart completes a trinity working as our divine processing unit of higher consciousness.  This is not understood by science any more than someone from two hundred years ago could have understood the internet or a wireless modem, they don’t see it so it doesn’t exist.  We have an important truth which states “what we think we know gets in the way of learning what we don’t know.”  This applies to everyone and most importantly to those in science.

Establishing a greater connection is so important to our growth in many ways.  We exist in Duality which has many illusions for us to see the truth of.  As we do we’re called to overcome each of them with understanding, these are known as Spiritual tests/challenges.

Fear, loneliness, separation and sadness are play toys of the Ego.  They each find their core in not having a strong connection to our higher aspects.  Once we’re connect and believe we’re connected our accomplishments expands quickly.  Fear for many is the greatest illusion to overcome, loneliness and separation are also signs of an incomplete connection to the other side of the veil.  When we are connected we can feel the love for us knowing we never could be alone, when these are known not just understood it frees us greatly allowing us to relax.  As we learn more we find the greatest inner peace as could be imagined.

The fallacy of Separation

Have you ever felt like you’re being watched?  If you did you’re right, we are not alone.  We’re being watched at every moment but it’s not Big Brother. (kinda)  Our brothers on the other side of the veil are always with us so they know everything we do.  (we really don’t having any privacy)  There’s no getting away from them and why would we want to?  They’re family or more directly they’re the rest of our own consciousness.  Since they are us they watch and wait hoping to help us if we should ever ask for help.  With our Free Will it means we do need to directly ask for help otherwise they are prohibited from contacting us in any way.  We must open the door to them.  They’re not even allowed to knock on the door which makes this a matter of our own awareness to know they’re with us.

Separation denotes singularity and there is no singularity except in our 3D thinking as we don’t see our unity with all that is.  We are connected to everything which is part of the Creative Consciousness itself.

Separation isn’t a separate spiritual challenge, it could be learned while meeting other challenges if it hadn’t become known before.  Knowing the illusion of separation for what it is keeps us from feeling lonely.  Loneliness is one of the Ego’s play toys so we’re reminded to be on the look-out for when the Ego is play with this one.  We could still desire to have another human with us but we feel our Guidance around us and understand we are loved and never alone.
