Hearing, Listening, and Further Insight
Thank you for sticking with me through this review of my journals. I know things started out (very) slowly, but I felt I needed to show that. As with any skill, starting to get in tune with your guides and the energies of the earth can be a slow process full of work and patience. Things are starting to pick up now.
Now that I was starting to get used to recognizing the actual “words” of my guides and the energies of the planet being given to me, I started to be taught lessons about manifestation and reaching your goals, and to be given direct lessons clearly. My regular daily meditation and reading were helping me to really focus on actually putting everything into practice and seeing results, and if I meditated on passages that I had just read, my guides would give me further insight.
They also started helping me to better understand my role and purpose in helping others, and of working with still others to help the world.

So … when you tell the Universe your goal and you act in such a way that reinforces that you really are working toward that goal (rather than saying it’s what you want but acting contrary), the Universe really can make that happen in some really creative ways. Yowsers.
[Around June] I told the Universe [my income goal for the year]. [When] I [set] that goal … I had made probably only [one third of the amount]. Suddenly, [I’ve gone] from no work to a ton of work. … and to seriously contemplating writing [to make money]. And to a client willing to pay me [more than double my normal hourly editing rate] for work.
All I can think right now is Wow. A little bit scary and overwhelming, but wow.

I wonder why in the autumn, everything feels new, fresh, and exciting to me? It’s the beginning of the end of the year, and most plants begin to either die back or go to sleep, yet the crisp air seems to bring promises and joy, comfort that not even the “renewal” of life can bring in the spring.
The colors are just as vibrant as in the spring, but richer, somehow, more warmly hued. Perhaps the feeling is actually joy, celebration of the plants and animals as they say “thank you” to the Earth and each other for the lovely summer and look forward to the winter’s sleep, looking toward spring in anticipation, like children settling down to sleep on Christmas Eve with the promise of the next morning to sweeten their dreams.

[Today’s meditation/prayer/affirmation:] I place my faith in the Universe. Through faith, all things are possible.
I share my gifts with the world, and the world shares its gifts with me. I need not strive for anything. I work to display my commitment and to experience satisfaction, to live my purpose. I allow the Universe to bring me what I most desire, and I release my fears regarding those desires, for only by releasing those fears do I truly allow the Universe to work on my behalf.
In a conversation with my guides, they told me, “You have touched [improved] innumerable lives.” They showed me [an image of an acquaintance]. I asked, surprised, “Already [before my book is done]?” The response was clear and unequivocal: “Already.” Hmm.

Thinking of how to bring about [a new business]. Currently letting it evolve.
My guides say [that the plan I have created] is a good plan for now. It will need to be adjusted later (as all plans do), [they tell me] but it is a good plan for now.

[I dreamed overnight of a grade-school friend who has frequently appeared in my dreams throughout my life, though we haven’t spoken since high school and now barely know each other. Quite often, I’m left feeling a bit unsettled after these dreams, as if they are very important messages.]
When I asked my guides if the dream was important or not and, if it was, why, I received this answer:
Important. You have important work to do together, even when not physically together. Improving the world.
Yes, [you] could have been together, had you learned a creative lesson or two in time (one you’re still working on understanding, that you are attractive to other people even though your body is not conventionally attractive). You would have behaved differently. But you have chosen the lessons for this life to be different than they could have been. Even still, you have important work to do together.
It is work for the world, though you don’t currently understand it. Feeding the hungry is part of it … but not all, by far. You watch each other, influence each other, always very near to each other [through family and friend connections] but rarely actually touching. The attractive force (soul level, not physically) is powerful, strong. Though you are largely unaware, the two of you, what the other is doing, you are on each other’s minds, influencing actions, thoughts, in ways you can’t comprehend.
It is a dynamic relationship, though it is currently all worked at the soul level. Be careful not to put him up on a pedestal [as an exemplar of humanity], for he is human, but know that he is important in your soul & life’s work.
That’s all I can get. I feel the channel still open, but it’s gone quiet for now.
Sometimes I still think I’m only making this up in my head, but I know [that] trust & faith in my abilities is one of my lessons. It would be easier sometimes if I were occasionally told something I don’t already know or suspect, but my intuition is so good that if I suspect something, it’s usually the case, as my mind has been considering the things it has noticed for some time & has pulled them together. Otherwise, they wouldn’t appear in my consciousness at all, simply dismissed, because they aren’t important to me at this level.
Feeling great truth in my spiritual reading today … and rec’d the message, “We love you, and we are with you always,” which I believe is in reference (“we”) to the Adepts mentioned in the book—they reside with us (humankind) always, always willing to teach when we are ready to learn, always guiding us gently, supporting us, helping us to get back up when we fall.
(I’m very open this morning, judging by the feel of my … Third Eye, so I’m frequently gently flooded with the pure Love and Truth that cause me to cry at their beauty and simplicity.)
From the moment I first heard the song “A Thousand Years,” I’ve thought of my first child (first heard it before [my daughter] was born). Still do. It makes me almost cry every time; it’s so beautiful and makes me think of how much I love and appreciate my children.
And then it hits me—that song is for us, humanity, from Creation, too.
All day since my meditation, I’ve been filled with an all-encompassing sense of peace and love—love for everything. It’s almost blissful.
I posted well-wishes on [Facebook] today, and a post about feeling awash with love. One friend actually said she thinks she “needs some of [my] meditation stuff” because my “posts like this make [her] day better.” That’s awesome. Another way I’m touching others’ lives positively!
(The original … post … was “Loving you all today, hoping you’re all safe, wherever you are, and wishing you the brightest day possible, and a day full of peace and comfort in whatever form you need.”)
Again, I was getting excited, but also far more peaceful, about the fact that I was hearing my guides more and more clearly. It felt more and more right with each passing day. Notice that some self-esteem issues were brought up by my guides in one of their communications (25 August). That will come into play again in the entries I share next week. (The lessons we have to learn just keep coming back until we learn them. And even then, they come back in different forms just to give us the chance to understand that we have well and truly learned them. )
Have any questions so far? Comment below or email me. I’ll probably turn the response into another blog post.
