Most people who know me understand how important words are in my world because it is these words that form your beliefs, thoughts and essentially your world. If you constantly spout negative, that is what you get. If you constantly use the word "should" you are guilting yourself in to living someone else's life and not your own. For example, I really "should" clean the house. Really!? Is that true? What happens if I don't clean the house? I can hear my father now...your house is a pig sty, clean it up. You know what? I don't mind dirt and dust bunnies. As long as my son and other animals are not being carried away, the dust bunnies really don't pose a threat. Also, I am very particular about who I invite in to my home (you could begin to determine whose energy you desire to have in your home) and those that are invited are not there to judge my home, they are there to visit with me and my family.
I firmly believe we overuse the word "should." This word carries much guilt. I "should" do this or I "should" do that. Really!? How about I "could" do that if I really desired to...should is about guilt, could is about choice.
The reason I am putting emphasis on the word "should" is because of the unknowingly terrible and destructive effect this word has on our lives. Growing up I was told I should do this, I should do that. I heard other people say the same: I should do this, I should do that... Again, really!?
Hindsight is certainly enlightening and, just as powerful, is the awareness you get when you realize how words, beliefs, stories, etc. affect the art of allowing. Allowing is accepting gifts the universe brings to you and answers you have been seeking to questions you have been asking. Too often, I see people reject "thank you" in return for an action or activity they have completed on behalf of another.
This is particularly true of spiritual healers. As healers, we know we are a conduit for energy and healing between the universe and the client and we know the glory goes to God for what we do however, and this is really important for you to remember, God cannot do work on the earthly plane without people volunteering for the job. What is also important to remember is when people thank you for the healing you've given them, the thanks is not given to inflate your ego, it is given out of gratitude by the client that you have been willing to help them on their journey. Does this make sense? When someone is thanking you, it is NOT ABOUT YOU! It is entirely about them and the gratitude they are trying to convey. When I hear spiritual healers say something like "it's not me, it's God doing the work" they do their clients a disservice.
First of all, the gratitude expressed is not about you, it is about the client and how they are feeling about their journey. They are thankful someone is helping them. Secondly, when you say "it's not me," you have just made the thankfulness about you and it is not about you, it is about the client! Thirdly, you have just rejected the client by rejecting their thanks thereby undoing a little of the progress the client has just made and finally, you are rejecting yourself by not allowing yourself to receive the gift of thanks! Were you even aware of the effects of "it's not me, it's God doing the work?"
Trust me, if you are afraid of having a huge ego, the awareness alone will prevent you from having one and God is not going to take offense if you take credit for the work He does, I assure you. We all desire to do the right thing...next time someone says thank you, a simple "Your welcome" will suffice and do not make a big production over "it's not me, it's God!"
If you reject a simple "thank you", how can you possibly accept the bigger gifts in life like a true love? A fruitful and highly paid job? A beautiful home you have always desired? How is that possible if you are rejecting thank yous?
I share these thoughts with you because of an evolution I have recently undergone. A number of years ago, another medium told me I was a shaman. (I did not know what that meant at the time and even today, I do not know what it means. I stopped researching anything because I realized the information stored in my brain could skew a healing preventing the flow of energy with beliefs on how things "should" be rather than on allowing the flow of energy to be what is needs to be.) I stored her comment in the back of my mind not knowing what to do with the information and hoping that someday, I would be enlightened. At that time, I hoped rather than trusted.
A few years later, I received a message from Creator that I was a medical intuitive and not to do anything with it, just know that I am. Again, did not know what that meant and stored the message in the back of my mind. Over and over again, Creator and others relayed messages about gifts I had and I stored all of this information away for a moment when all would be revealed to me.
About a week ago, it finally happened. Creator revealed to me a bigger picture of who I am and why I am here. I have been asking these questions for many years and Creator perceived I was finally ready. I am a shaman. I have the abilities to heal people and animals, to draw disease out of those ready to release it, I channel entities from far away places in many different dimensions of existence, I am a spiritual guide, I am a mentor, I am a friend. My initial reaction when Creator conveyed this message: who am I to be so great and to have these incredible abilities? My second reaction: who am I not to be so great and to have these incredible abilities. (If you have not done so, please read A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson. It will change your way of thinking and your life.)
As I had been guided to do in the past, I analyzed my initial reaction and healed the fears and beliefs around shamanism and proceeded to grateful accept the message Creator had conveyed.
It is only through the art of allowing that I have evolved in to the person I am today. I have allowed myself to heal, to learn lessons, to be the teacher and the student and to love myself and others unconditionally.
How do we reset the balance of consciousness in the world so true healing can happen? Open yourself to allowing. Heal what is required to allow yourself to receive all that the Universe would gift you with. It is by doing our own healing that we give others permission to do the same. Do not wait for someone else to do it for you. Take charge of your own life and your own healing. Reset your own balance of consciousness and allow that to pervade the collective. This is how the healing of the global collective is done. One being at a time.
Message from Creator
"It is true you were created for greatness yet you allow the limitations of others to become your own. Children are not born with limitations, these are imposed upon them. Do not transfer your own limitations and beliefs on to others. Heal what you hold in your thoughts and emotions. Know there is more to your world than what you think you know. The world is a vast center of knowing, healing, understanding, conssciousness and it could be yours. You are loved."
