What is a Metaphysical Blog? It is my attempt to allow anyone who seeks to ask the big questions, share the answers and analyse how it all works. This Universe and how it all spins out, plays out and our place here in this life on Planet Earth. I will incorporate my observations, experiences with my own journey, some of the many clients, students and friends, teachers along the path I have met, helped, taught and was educated by and with this comes Gnosis= Knowledge, Wisdom, Truth Revealed and so many wondrous things! The word Enlightenment...was does it mean? It is the question of the Ages. I hope to show some answers of what it is, how to "get there" and why we should bother.
I remembered the times, so many times, I was thrown onto the path, yes, thrown! Seeking answers, looking everywhere, reading anything I could get my hands on which might explain, and all the while asking the questions no one I knew was asking. I had these incredible experiences which no one else I knew had. I was young, innocent, not aware of words like "Karma", "Consciousness", Past Lives" etc., etc. but these experiences kept coming and making me ask and seek the answers to.." Who am I really? Why am I here? What is my purpose? Why did this happen to me and what does it mean?" I was no more then 19 years old at the time.
Eventually and quite by chance (later learning there is nothing by "chance", ever!) I sought and found a school of Metaphysics, The American National Institute for Psychical Research and Development in Westlake, California in 1980 and spent 4 years learning the ways of the Mystic/ Metaphysician. In essence, it led to even more learning and discovery of which you could say I am still doing. Having graduated with a BSc. Metaphysics and trained in Nursing with an emphasis on Holistic Medicine in 1983, I was previously intent on becoming a Psychologist, so all my previous studies were in Psychology. I went to many institutes for Higher Learning before and after my degree. What I learned was this: Astrology, Tarot, Past Life Regression, Numerology, Symbology, Dream Analysis, Archetypes, Healing, Laying on of Hands, Energy Work, Chakra Balancing, Meta. 1 (beginning) and Meta. 2 (advanced), Kabbalah, Crystals and Gems and what they can do and how they Heal, Seeing and Analysing Auras, Seeing into the Soul, Messages from the Great Beyond, Guides, Angels, Archangels, and Passed On Loved Ones and so much more! All of this came to me, as I sought the answers to "Why?"
It is a very good question, don't you think? Why? So simple and yet so profound. I invite you to ask this question and see where it takes you. I also invite you to enjoy sharing your own path with me or, if you choose, jump on board the Path. What is the Path? It is the Path that leads within, that leads to your Heart, your Soul, your Higher Mind, your inner Self, your Divine Self. Therein lies all your truth, your own reasons for incarnating in this lifetime. Your purpose, your destiny and divinity all the answers to your many selves...your Multi-Dimensional Self. There are many tools which help, of course, as I mentioned them above. All the "ologies" work very well and I would suggest using them or finding someone to help you who knows well how to use them for Guidance and Insight.
The time of Dec. 21st, 2012 is near. What does this really mean? It is my belief from all I have seen and studied that we are on a wave of enlightenment. Why not catch that wave? Learn this and be made aware or be out there in a Storm of confusion.
I invite you to, "Come in", she, said," I'll give you Shelter from the Storm." words by Bob Dylan.
Here is Bob Dylan's beautiful song which really demonstrates the Seeker (individual) who is out there in the storm,(life, ego raging, unconscious, trying to survive, unaware as to what to do or how, finds himself in constant trouble, dramas ensuing) ...he finds comfort in a single act of kindness from a woman with silver bangles and flowers in her hair (the Divine Feminine, The Mystic) who creates a place of safety and comfort for him. My silver bracelets still jangle but the flowers in my hair are long gone with my teens...but were there in the 1970's! The Inner work very much intact, the reasons all answered, so do come in and seek some Shelter from the Storm. Click on the video, look at the words, Dylan's masterpiece of poetry, mood and music created by a man who knows, lived it and enjoy!
How has this journey of seeking the inner self and truth been for you? Do you even bother? Is there more then what we see with our 5 senses? Are you a Light Worker, Healer, Therapist, Seeker of Truth? What works for you?
Peace, love, enlightenment,
