Opening to Spirit - stumbles and humility


Guides are all around us and within us – you only have to ask and they will respond. In my own journey I’ve been making good progress in contacting my own Guides and have received messages that seem to come from nowhere and everywhere at the same time.

My first glimpse of a Guide was many years ago when I attempted the activities detailed in a book by Sanaya Roman titled ‘Opening to Channel’. Following the ‘guidance’ of this book I managed to ‘meet’ the first of my Guides – a Druid. I never received any messages or his name and my interests soon drifted to other more mundane subjects.

Since the re-discovery of my path I have again seen this Guide while meditating. I asked him again what his name was only to receive a word that sounded something like ‘Dureded’. In my rush to see something deep and earth-shattering in this word I threw myself at the internet looking for the name of a God, a Legend or a religious figure of the past – there was nothing.

I then checked with my good friend Mark Olly what the word could possibly mean – to receive the reply “It sounds like the ancient pronunciation of the word ‘Druid’ – he’s telling you that’s what he is” – Duh! – Mark suggested that I “try asking the right question, where is it you want me to go?”. No wonder my poor Guide had just stood there looking at me with a glazed look on his face – he’d ended up with a real Duffer!

Another time, again during meditation, I felt a presence in the room with me and asked who it was – ‘Verante’ I heard in my mind. Again I rushed off to the computer to see what magnificent enlightenment I had received. I had pictures of Italian nobility flying through my mind, vast vaults of knowledge at their fingertips just waiting to impart them to ME.

Alas, nothing again. What was going on? What kind of messages was I being given for the benefit of mankind that I could not understand? I shared this story with my partner, Tara, for her to point out that it was probably ‘Your Auntie” as I have a very close Aunt Eileen who passed to the other side. Double Duh! I’d asked who was there and she had replied in a way that I would understand – or so SHE thought.

It is so easy when you are dealing with ideas that appear magical and extraordinary to read majesty into the messages you receive. I’m new to this and should not expect to transcend to the Highest Realm in the blink of an eye. I have uncovered a special gift and must take the time to learn my art. I now feel blessed for each word, picture or feeling I receive and wait patiently for the next piece of the jigsaw.

I know they are around and will desist from endless ‘tests of confirmation’ and will simply accept that the feelings I receive are from Spirit and that it is my pleasure to have been chosen to serve in this way. In a very short time the positivity and peace I receive in return are well worth the effort and I am truly thankful.

In time I hope to be able to experience a wider vista of everything Spirit offers to the human senses and will develop the ability to see, hear and be touched by those that seek me out. I will however be content to ‘feel’ their presence in my mind and pass on the ‘hints’ and insights on their behalf.

So what have I learnt that I wish to share with the world today – ‘Keep your feet on the floor and your head out of the clouds if you attempt to communicate with Spirit’. I know we must look up to the Heavens for Insight but I will be humble in my approach when they call on me to work with them.

Recently a new Guide has shown itself to me and appeared in meditation as a human outline filled with Stars - who or what this is I have no idea but am looking forward to finding out in good time.

Take care, search for Truth, remain Positive, BE the change,

Damian

Awesome post, Damian. And great advice!

I frequently see swirls of stars on a black background in my meditations. They appear in the eyes of Apollo, in the eyes of my anima when she's doing a Reading, and at the bottom of certain pools and streams... For me, the stars seem to be a symbol of some kind of primal source -- a kind of chaos or void from which forms spring.

Jeff,

A real honour to have youe 'pop over' - hope you and yours are well.

Yes - the stars within the outline were indeed on a black background - thanks for the 'hint'.

Your comment has made me think that what I was being shown was that the 'Universe is within' a Shamanic/Druid concept that I'm suer you are fully aware of - that 'Spirit is in all things'.

Thanks again - you continue to be an inspiration.

Love and Light,

Damian

Just because a computer search did not locate some information...
does NOT dismiss the fact that perhaps ‘Verante’ does have vast vaults of knowledge....
awaiting.... ONLY YOU !!!

Trust in these messages !!

I really don't believe they have an explanation in the Earthly realm. Certainly not one to be found as a HIT on a Google Search.

Thank you for sharing your personal journey. Your insights are flashlights in the still of night. :)
