From David -
I have heard from various people many times over the last couple of weeks something akin to “Well I believe in channeling and guides and stuff like that but I think I want to learn on my own, find out my own answers, learn from my heart, I don’t need anyone else.” There are two things going on here. One is ego and the other is a misconception that one is alone. Ego might be the number one blockage to growing, understanding and evolvement at a more rapid pace. We think we are the bomb. We believe for some reason, on some level we are somehow better than another. We want to show our belief is somehow better than another belief and we will defend those beliefs with actions if need be to stand our ground no matter what the emotional or physical consequence may be. Belief, like trust, is ever changing and growing as our perspective grows and changes our guides tell us. Ego is a lower part of our being. When we evolve enough ego drops away. Look at Gandhi or Jesus or Mother Theresa, there wasn’t a lot of ego going on there. The other issue is what Oden calls the illusion of privacy. We are beings of light having a physical experience. To keep this aspect of ourselves at this level God and the guides and angels and us had to agree that we would be able to forget where we came from, forget what it feels like to be in God’s presence and on higher spiritual realms. This has caused many problems down here but suffice it to say we so aren’t alone. Everyone is born with two guides similar to us in this aspect. We can also have master guides, animal guides, plant guides, crystal guides. Maybe our deceased relatives are hanging around us. There are so many souls around us all the time screaming for us to do this or that and we think we just got the idea to do this thing when someone has been telling us to do it for the last hour. You are never alone. God is always with you as well as all these others, even random beings from other levels are around. Just because we can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Our guides say that on the astral level there are all sorts of souls painting masterpieces, writing music, creating incredible works of art that they can somehow transfer to a physical soul to then be made at this level. Lauralei read an article where Bob Dylan was being interviewed and he was asked how he wrote so much amazing music and he said, “You think a person could write these songs?” Our thoughts are not just our thoughts. You can randomly pick up another’s thoughts because thoughts are energy and travel through space just like a radio signal. It could be your intuition, your astral body senses, a message from your higher self, a guide or angel communicating to you. It takes a lot of practice to discern what thoughts are ours and what comes from elsewhere. Yes, we have self-discovery. Yes, we have lessons for us to learn. And yes, we do have some original ideas, but oftentimes it is a group effort. Ariel said that the three most important relationships in ones’ life are with God, your Higher Self & with your Master Guide. Master guides’ come before a soulmate but that’s probably the forth most important relationship. If we have some of God within us why and how can we believe we are alone. Our belief in our aloneness is one of the toughest difficulties to overcome at this level, but do not let it mask you from the truth that we have so many souls sending love and light to us always and at this level we can use all the help we can get.
