Every day at any time we are subject to being tested on some level.  When we’re doing our spiritual work is an especially good time for Guidance to measure how we’re doing lesson wise.  How we respond when presented with certain situations determines where our Guidance will focus our lesson plan.  In healing work is particularly a good time to measure our progress.  At times we’ll sense an energy which isn’t in alignment with the person we’re working with and is also not appropriate to clear.  The test could be to find out if we’ll sense it, use our intuition to determine the correct action, ask the correct questions or if we’ll just remove it without further inquiry.

Sensing an energy doesn’t mean it’s alright to clear it.  If it’s there and we don’t sense it this doesn’t mean it’s in the highest good for it to stay there but this is a tricky one.  If we don’t sense it others may and alert us to what they feel or it may just be to test our senses.

Welcome to the pop quiz version of spiritual testing.  As I write this Guidance is laughing motioning for me to move forward.

Just for the record, we can’t actually remove or change anything which should not be cleared.  All of our perceptions come through our spiritual connections such as the Pineal gland to mention one.  These are accessible to be adjusted or filtered by Guidance for us to sense or not sense what we are called to notice or not intended to notice.  As we grow spiritually the filtering becomes less until there is no longer a purpose for this to occur.  If we attempted to clear something which should not be cleared most likely we’d be given the perception of its having been cleared so we’ll feel complete about it even though it remains where it was.  The term “no harm, no foul” comes to mind from Guidance.  Our experience on Earth is one of learning to be the Divine consciousness we are but don’t remember.  In the process of learning / remembering we’re not allowed to interfere in the growth of others even if we believe what we’re doing is in the highest good.  We’re not wise enough to know that so any attempt which would interfere with some one’s growth will not be permitted.  This brings us back to being tested and knowing what is appropriate.  As we complete our lessons we’re offered new opportunities to learn greater details or more involved subjects.  Conversely, not learning a lesson afforded us will result in our remaining at our current point until such time as we do learn.  Spirituality is completely a reward system, learn it then move forward or not staying where we are until it becomes well understood.

Sensing an energy which is not conducive to good health yet should not be removed is common.  A primary reason an energy would not be in the highest good to remove is often one of that energy has not yet fulfilled its purpose.  Yes, even those energies which are not the sort we want to keep have a greater purpose.  It usually takes a lot to get our attention and often we ignore subtle energies for years or even many incarnations during which time Guidance ups the level of discomfort attempting to get our attention so we’ll learn what is to be learned.  Many times in that learning those energies are cleared once and for all just by understanding the lesson.  As mentioned in other entries about healing we have a tendency to focus on what comes to our attention without looking behind that to see if there’s more, of which there usually is.  Not addressing those other energies is to overlook the root cause of a symptom, many times there are multiple layers.

Another just for the record, our Guidance is a part of us which didn’t enter into this 3D environment.  That part of us has the task of assisting us to learn in the most efficient way possible.  As they are us, they know all too well what it takes to get our attention.  They are diligent and persistent in accomplishing this goal in spite of how much we may drag our feet when it comes to meeting a challenge.

Now the flip side of sensing is unawareness of an energy.  At times we are prevented from seeing what is there simply due to its being inappropriate to clear it.  On other occasions we are tested to see if we can sense it anyway.  In my experience there are many levels of cloaking having been constructed in different ways to prevent sensing what is behind / within it.  At times several are employed to compound the difficulty.  The challenge becomes one of, can we sense the cloaking and are we able to see through them.

An advanced subject worth mentioning is the construction of cloaks to hinder dark energies.  I find this fun and informative to test the limitations of a dark consciousness.  This of course is not accomplished by using the Linear Consciousness which is always thinking it can (Ego) but rather by using the Spiritual Consciousness which could if we’ve come to a full spiritual knowing of our “God Within.”  Having integrated the knowing of how to work with cloaks and by practicing our energy work diligently we can become skilled.  Using a pendulum is a good way to by-pass our filters and know if we’re at a point of learning to accomplish this or anything else spiritual or otherwise.  As when working with Guidance asking a properly worded question makes all the difference.  We’ll get an answer to the question we did ask but was that the one we intended to ask.

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.

Guidance

These are a collection of things about Guidance compiled into one place

Guidance?

Guidance is a very common term in spirituality but who or what is guidance?  There are many thoughts on this which range from being very close to not close at all.  All of these are based on our ability to sense and perceive the answers.  The definition I find best suited is that our Guidance being the rest of us which didn’t and couldn’t enter into this three dimensional existence.  We each are a group consciousness of our own created in the image of the Creative Consciousness.  This may sound familiar, “we are made in his image” but not necessarily in the way some may think we are.  God doesn’t have two arms and legs but rather we are a group consciousness patterned after the Creative Consciousness of which we are a part of.

Since we each are our own group we each have our own Guidance although it’s common to receive guidance from any other part of the Creative Consciousness as is called for or we ask for it.

Due to the conditions of our being on Earth working with the energy for our greater collective consciousness we still have Free Will.  As part of this Guidance cannot and will not help or interfere in any way until we ask for help.  Only then is Guidance allowed to help us and only to the extent allowed for by us or what is in the highest good of the Divine Plan.

What Guidance Won’t Say

The most widely held thoughts about Guidance is they’re a source of everything we want to know.  This is true but only to the extent of our experience and understanding.  This is worthy of examination.  No one can conceive of anything beyond our experience or comprehension, in other words “we don’t know what we haven’t learned yet.”  Guidance couldn’t explain an internal combustion engine to a caveman who hadn’t even figured out the wheel yet.  Learning is a step by step process so Guidance will not and would not give us information about anything beyond our perception or we haven’t yet thought of.  This may sound like Guidance is keeping secrets but in truth we learn best by experience and having gone through the process to figure it out.  If Guidance just told us everything we wanted to know about it would diminish our thought processes and ability to learn from our lessons.  At times we may even get some misleading or incomplete information on a subject which is designed to challenge us to look deeper.  At other times we won’t be corrected in our misunderstandings and allowed to go on believing it to be true until we see the higher truth for ourselves.

Guidance loves us too much to cheat us out of our experiences and challenges of finding out for ourselves.  That said, if we have an insight we can very often gain more detailed information about it from guidance as we probe a greater understanding of our insight.  Even then we’re not just being given information, we’re going through the process of thinking it out using intuition receiving confirmation or we’re being asked to revisit our thinking.

The more we probe the unknown “mysteries” on the other side of the veil the more we understand how things really work so we can unlearn the misperceptions we’ve been taught were the truth.  (this is also known as clearing filters)

If you play Chess with Guidance

Each time we journey here for a new expression of physical life we each have a basic purpose and plan of what we intend to accomplish.  When the incarnation is over what is yet to be completed is placed on the list for the next incarnation.  We also take part in larger plans which connect directly to our personal plan.  When Divine consciousness develops a plan you’d better know it’s complete with every possible contingency covered in the fullest detail and know we’re part of the larger plan.

So why then would anyone not want to listen to guidance and allow them to assist us to pilot our lives knowing full well that our guidance knows the plan and can see around every corner before we even get there?  This is a good question which deserves contemplation.

I think one concern is in letting go of what we believe is our control of our life.  In truth the control we have is very different than what we think it is.  We control our reality by how and what we think which includes staying out of drama and judgment of others while learning self-love and forgiveness.  Learning these do more to change what happens in our lives than most would think.  We also have control from our “Free Will” but maybe not as much as we would like past choices about what’s for lunch.  We always have free will to stop for gas now at the last gas station for miles or do it later but this could have consequences we don’t want to experience.  We’re preoccupied about planning for our retirement or just in paying the bills every month.  Letting go is at the very least a “leap of faith” allowing guidance to suggest the direction which would serve our life’s path best.  After all this is why we have guidance here in the first place.  We’re not put here to “go it alone” but to find the rest of us and listen to the wise council.

When we’ve had the chance to get a quick look at part of a Divine plan it’s amazing in its complexity.  These plans have been compared to a tapestry many times and correctly so.  Pulling on a thread in one place will cause movement in other threads somewhere else.  That is a good analogy of how a change in one event shifts potentials in others.  To put this into context of daily life it would be like planning to be somewhere, we’ll say it’s an event at which unknowingly we’d meet someone we should meet and they decided not to be there.  If that meeting was important to the life’s plan it would be rescheduled to a secondary contingency.  The Divine plans are full of such secondary and back-up plans just in case we’re not in the flow with our plan in that moment.

Another way guidance will work to keep us on track is in giving us a reason to do something which isn’t the real reason but is one we can rationalize as a good idea.  This has been seen so many times and is sometimes called “doing the right thing for the wrong reason,” guidance gave us a good reason (even if we didn’t know it was guidance) so we’d go alone with the program only to see later there really was another reason which we may not have gone along with even though it was in our highest good.

Following Guidance

We can get to the other side of the river using the bridge or we can swim the river, the choice is ours to make. Guidance may have an entirely different plan we didn’t see and we won’t know about it unless we ask.

Being In-Service

Guidance has an open door policy.  It’s our door that’s open since they’re multidimensional and don’t have doors but we’re asked to be open at any time to serve as asked.  This could be sending energy to an event or being awake to get an important phone call for help.  This is the ultimate in being a “team” player.  We are asked to become One and work together in all ways.

More about Filters and Our Belief System

(This is of greatest importance to understand and of interest to those who are channels, readers or do medium-ship work yet applies to everyone.)

I was asked today if it were possible remove our filters or block them with a command.  As much as I would like to say yes, the case is very much a big NO.

There are a couple of good reasons for this.

First of all what we believe creates our filters which in a more direct term would be to say the filters are not stacked on top of what we believe, the filters are what we believe.  Right or wrong what we believe sets up an obstacle course through which everything must pass.

Secondly what we believe creates the “who” we are personality wise.  If we remove or block our belief system to get our filters out of the way we are no longer who we were.  Which at times some of us may have wanted to do this so we could be someone else for a while.

Where would we be without a belief system?  Guidance had one word on this, Chaotic. Having look up the synonyms it makes sense, Disordered, Muddled, Confused, Messy.

So where does this leave us in working with our filters?  We are then called upon to use the age-old time tested method of re-learning the incorrect information we’ve all learned and seek a higher truth from within on a daily basis for as long as it takes to move past the inhibiting misbeliefs we hold as truth.  I wish it were not so but as Guidance states being a Master is simple but it isn’t easy.

Belief is Everything

What we believe dictates how we think plus how “our version of reality” reacts to us as we interact with others.  What we don’t believe is possible changes nothing for the world around us but impacts us greatly.  The “don’t believes” limit what we could achieve which otherwise would be possible for us.  The “believe” and “don’t believe” list create blockages becoming part our individual version of reality stacking the deck in a game of life.  We are the creators of our reality individually and collectively.  We’re solely responsible for what we create and we’re called to exist in our creation until such time we see a higher truth of what we’ve created.

It’s been mentioned in a number of other posts we create what we focus our thoughts on.  Most of us at some time or another have seen someone else and we think “they’re so lucky to . . . “, in all actuality those we’re seeing as being lucky are actually those thinking differently than the norm.  Many of them are focused for the most part on positive thought rather than drama, I can’t, I wish I could or any other “reason” we could think of for not being or doing what we want.  It’s all about what/how we think.  It’s a shock when we see how we’ve self-sabotaged our own life.  Not only now, how many times in other incarnations have we done the same thing, it’s all in the Akash affecting us daily just waiting to be found and cleaned up.

Believe it or not truth has nothing to do with belief, if it did we wouldn’t create our own blockages from false perceptions we hold as true.  Since we believe what we know is the truth this may well surprise many if not most reading this.  Humanity on the whole has a belief there’s a singular truth for everything, you either have it or you’re wrong.  This one misperception is responsible for a few wars and battles around the world throughout the centuries especially when religion is involved.  At best truth is “our truth” which may or may not apply to anyone else.  We are all unique with different experience having learned different lessons.  Most of us have heard the term a “higher truth,” there’s always a greater truth than we’re prepared to understand.  As our understanding grows we see higher truths than those we held as being true before.

Filters a.k.a. the Programming of Human Intellect

From the moment of birth the three dimensional intellect receives input from all available sources.  Much like a computer program receiving periodic updates our programming is added onto and revised moment by moment being adjusted with every new experience and reinforced with repeated experiences.

What we believe is a result of our programming which is a result of our experience.  The intellect develops patterns after time which limits the readiness to accept new experience.  Anything outside of past experience must be passed through comparative logic of previous experience before being added to the data base of our programming.  The human brain collects and categorizes everything but rejects as errors that which is too far beyond other previous experience.  Our programming has nothing to do with truth no matter how much some may protest, it’s only about experience which is then judged to be truth since that’s all we know.

Now to the filters, in spiritual terms what we believe becomes our filters, these color our perception and receptivity to all new information based on what we think is true.  They also present us with challenges in moving forward with our growth to learn higher truths.  Filters not only present challenges to everyone in daily life, Physics, Mediums, Channelers and Readers must also contend with these.  Filters flavor what we think plus what we see, hear and or perceive in spiritual ways.  Our information then isn’t as pure as it could have been.  This fact isn’t as well-known as it could be but is very important to understand.  Our daily life is affected by past experiences and what we think we know.  This is compounded for those engaged in spiritual work doing readings for themselves and others seeking information.  Any and all information is subject to increased impurity depending on the extent to which the reader has filters.  Of course we’re seldom even aware of having any filters in the first place so how would we recognize them in others?

We only know what we experienced in some fashion or another, nothing beyond that is even on the radar until we engage our higher abilities of intuition and discernment.  These are not aspects known to our human intellect unless we’ve practiced these before.  Intuition and discernment originate beyond the three dimensional world coming through aspects of our spiritual consciousness which is not part of the human intellect.  With our intuition and discernment we have new resources of experience beyond those of our 3D world allowing us to openly touch the multidimensional origins.  Finding this doorway to the greater-self is a major accomplishment in being here on Earth, it allows us to see our filters understanding how they came to be.  Only then are we ready to unlearn the many misperceptions we’ve held to remove our filters.

Of Belief Systems, Filters and Blockages

We hear a lot about beliefs and blockages.  Filters are perhaps a little less spoken of outside channeling groups.  This will present a connection between these terms and hopefully aid in understanding.

Belief Systems would seem self-explanatory although for the purpose of demonstrating a connection with filters and blockages we’ll go a bit deeper.  Belief Systems are indeed what we believe in, although, this is not to say that any belief system is completely true/correct or accurate, they’re just a collection of what we believe in.  What we hold as truth is our belief system and independent of its validity.  Falsehoods in our belief system taint our acceptance of other ideas standing in the way our abilities which contradict the substance in a belief system.

A filter could be considered as a single belief fitting within a belief system.  We could have any number of filters residing within our belief system.  An example of a filter could be defined as a belief that “I’m not good enough.”  We find so many excuses to limit ourselves from success.  The word “excuse” is intentional being used to show that in a Divine view “I’m not good enough” isn’t valid nor is it a reason, it’s a false perception of the truth designed to stop someone from even trying.  Sometimes filters come from traditions handed down from teachers or elders while at others times they’re misunderstandings of a perception.

When a filter does stop us from accomplishing our desires it then becomes a blockage as they inhibit us from completing our goals.

The differences may be not be large although all of these except for the context in which belief systems is used could be looked at as a form of “baggage.”  Baggage in any form holds us back from making progress.
