Spiritual Thoughts


The following are all questions that I have been mulling over in my head for quite some time. I went to a spirit fair a couple weeks ago and I did ask a few of these questions to the intuitives I met with. I am always going to have a lot of questions, but at least I have a little bit of insight now. 

Will I ever feel some sort of connection and positive reinforcement that I am moving forward in my spiritual journey?

It’s hard to make a “dent” but anything that you do while working spiritually is a step forward. 

How do I know what avenues of spirituality to pursue?

I asked about this and I was told to keep studying everything! 

How do I find the time to keep learning everything I want to learn about?

It’s funny, because one of the intuitives told me that half of the things I research is because of my intuition drawing me towards it; and the other half is plain sheer curiosity. Which is completely true for me! When I am learning about anything, I always get distracted. I’ll see something and then go off on a tangent, like, “ooooh what does THAT mean?” Or, “what’s THAT all about?” and before I know it, two hours has passed! But, the answer to this is pretty easy. I will have the time to learn about what is most important and what I am supposed to learn about. Once I get more practice at acknowledging my intuition, I will know what to focus on better, etc. 

Will I ever write another book?

I didn’t ask this exact question per se, but I did mention that I write. The intuitive told me that she sees me writing a book someday that will help others. I will share my experiences and things that I have learned through my spiritual journey and share them to help other people. 

I don’t really put too much pressure on myself wondering if I will write another book. Well, maybe that’s not true. Either way, I have come to trust that if I should, I will. It is not something that I have time or energy to force. Obviously, I do hope to. I wish I could put more time into making it happen — but just when I think things might slow down and I can get into the swing of it — something else happens. Life is funny that way, though. Which is why I now trust if it’s meant to happen, that it will. Some days it is harder to just “trust,” but I continue to work on that, as well. 


A Soul is a Soul

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of reading, learning and thinking about souls. Our physical bodies are not ours; they are only shells used for our time here and now. They make it easy for us to recognize each other. The face you look at in the mirror every single day, won’t always be “your” face. When we die, our souls leave our “shell” and hang out until it’s time to re-incarnate.

When we die, our souls then go to a higher spiritual plane of existence. Some call it Heaven, but it all depends on your religious views. Upon our arrival, we are reunited with all of the “people” that had meaning in our lives. Lives in the plural sense, because you not only meet again with those you knew in your most recent life, but in all of your lives. Your souls recognize each other through karmic connection.

Souls can sometimes stay in between lives for many reasons. A soul can be confused about its death and unable to let go of its last life. It has unresolved issues, and tends to hang around the people and places that were important to it in that life. A soul in this situation is what we most commonly refer to as a ghost.

Souls that are ghosts are actually stuck in the transition stage from life to life. They might not fully realize they’re dead, or even if they do; they care more about getting back to their “life” than they do about moving on. Only a small percentage of souls become ghosts, and it really depends on how traumatic their life or death was, and how well they approached the act of letting go once they did die.

Sometimes souls, if they aren’t ready to reincarnate, can be spiritual guides or guardians. They are able to watch over someone that is of interest to them, whether it be a family member or friend from a past life; or just someone their energy connects with. They are also able to have more than one of these people to watch over, going back and forth between them. Some are there for the duration, and some are only there to help guide through a specific time in someone’s life.

I just find all of this stuff to be amazingly interesting…and I enjoy sharing things I learn with others that are interested, as well. Which reminds me of something else I read: some people are believed to be spiritual immortals. That means that they have achieved a level of spirituality and awareness that allows them to direct their own reincarnations while keeping some of their memories and personality traits throughout all their lives. These people can remember their past lives and even time spent in between lives. I would LOVE to meet and talk with someone that has this capability, wouldn’t you?
