Spiritual awareness is a phrase often used but do we mean? The most basic understanding would be acceptance of spiritual existence, but it usually indicates a far greater depth of knowledge and understanding. We are normally looking at people that have a degree of learning of the nature of the Universe.

There is such varying degree in awareness. To be aware we would say you would at least have the understanding that humans are primarily a spirit entity which continues to exist after physical death. There would have to be some understanding of the relationship of the Universe. We are referring to people with this basic understanding but who are delving deeper into the meaning of the Earthly world, of the Universe and why we play this role of living out human lives.

To be truly spiritually aware, you need to have accepted the concept, you came here to experience and learn so the spiritual being within grows and develops. This would incorporate cause and effect.

There are so many different beliefs as to why we experience hardships, why we experience losses and why we find ourselves in trouble. The concept of why these things happen should change in a person’s lifetime as they become more versed in the working of the Universe. As you progress, your understanding as to why things happened, both fortunate and unfortunate will be different to those you previously held.

There are so many small things that happen in your life that have a profound effect on yourself and those around you. Although you may think little of an incident in actual fact it may have been be very important. The way you react to other people when their behaviour has an impact on you is one of the great measures of just how far you have progressed in your development.

The lessons to which you are exposed are in reality quite different from the idea that most humans accept. What you learn is concepts. As an example, your lesson isn’t necessarily to learn to turn the other cheek. The lesson is more probably how loving both yourself and others, despite the human condition with all its faults, is so rewarding for yourself and the Universe, it far outweighs any material or ego gain that could result from taking retaliatory action. You may not be able to see for yourself in your limited human form, the great benefits from your action of love but it exists and has its roots in the concept of cause and effect, a major learning of an aware being.

Intolerance and bigotry are something we would expect from one who has not learned very much from their time on Earth. This is not to say we condemn those that have these traits. What we say is they have not yet learned a great deal from their Earthy experiences.

We do not have these things in the spirit plane as there is no need as we have much clearer vision of different people and their personalities. We of course do not have people from different races as you would say. We do not have people of different appearances. Everyone up here is energy and they can make their appearance what ever they wish. The difference we have here between individuals is their level of evolvement but this doesn’t cause resentment as we recognize that we will all be in that place at some time.

We have different personalities here and this is an aspect more likely to cause aggravation than anything else but is doesn’t because we do not see it that way. Personalities do remain but it is different because we are all gentle people in spirit. We do not have the Earthy aggression. We do not have the need to fight for our place. We may do whatever we wish; it is always our own choice. There is no hunger or fear. We do not have one person pushing us around so there is no need for personalities to clash. As we don’t have obstacles and problems, we enjoy a variation in personalities so the differences can cause stimulation and a focus point for us to work.

We have the added knowledge that you don’t take with you to Earth. Unfettered spirits have a far deeper understanding and see much more clearly the true nature of a situation and this is why there are no clashes of personalities here, that we do not envy another.

It is more the situation that one spirit will be ponderous, one spirit might be highly excitable, one may always be seeking to know the answers to everything. Some spirits may be better with working with people, whereas others may be great scholars. We work together in groups according to our tastes and desires but we also have our family groups which may be quite different in composition to those we whom we do our learning. A family group needs to be assembled of differing people. That is, the more experienced and evolved spirits need a balance with new, younger spirits.

We need those that stimulate, we need those that will quietly ponder, we need the inquisitive minds and we need those that just want to nurture and care for everyone. This is how a family is composed. There becomes a great bond within family groups and it is to these groups that we keep returning. We may go away for extended periods for learning and we may be gone for some time, but when we complete what we are doing, we return to the family groups where others are always delighted to see us back and interested in what we have been doing.

We take great joy in helping the younger spirits along. There is great pleasure from answering their questions and playing games that will encourage them to think and learn.

There comes a time when we will leave a family group to go to a higher level, as we have developed as much as we are able within this group. That doesn’t mean we won’t keep in touch. We will form a new family group at the higher level and we will become the youngest spirit in that group and will have great respect for those who are more advanced and look forward eagerly to learning from them.

It is similar to how our family group in spirit like to keep in touch and love to watch our progress when we live on Earth. They send us their love and help because they are keen for us to succeed in what we have come back to this environment to achieve. They delighted when we return home to them and will love to talk about what we have done while we were on the Earth sphere. They will tease us about our silly little mistakes but it will always be in good humour and will spend much more time applauding us for what we have learned.

It takes some time to settle back into the spirit life once we have returned. Initially, there is a type of debriefing but once we are back and fully aware of where we are again, there is a heartfelt welcome back into the family group. A great fuss is made when we return like a mother greeting a child who has been away in other parts of the world.

When we come back and settle in, we need to choose what we want to do. There are counsellors here whose job is to discuss all the options available to you and they give you advice on what each module would involve and the likely benefits to your development. Usually it is possible to do your learning and still stay close to your family group but sometimes you need to go elsewhere to do the learning. Much like when you come to Earth for a human life. Sometimes you can be there for a very long time and other times it is a relatively short period.

When you have done all the learning that interests you at a particular level, you may be approached about the possibility of moving to another family group that containing more advanced souls. It’s your choice entirely as to whether you wish to move on. Some have great attachments to some one in their family group and don’t wish to be parted. That is quite acceptable and is not frowned upon.

If you don’t feel the need to stay attached to anyone in your group, you are assigned a new family at a higher level. When you arrive to be with your new group, you always feel in awe of those who are the more advanced souls in that group. It takes awhile to find your place in the family and although you are always welcomed with great love and acceptance, you have to find your niche.

It is a very interesting time as you have much to find out about your new family members and again your intelligence is challenged by the vastness of their experience.

The idea of having set levels that you go up through comes from humans. It is just used to make understanding easier. You decide with your counsellor the amount of advancement you wish to make. He will make a suggestion, but if you are more comfortable with a lesser degree, it is your choice. Sometimes a spirit will request to go higher than requested. This is most unusual but does happen and is up to the counsellor to contact a new family and find out if they would be willing to accept such a move. A good reason to go much higher than the next stage would be required, but sometimes it is a good thing.

We’re talking of levels. The higher the vibrations the greater the development so if you could imagine the shades of a colour equating to the vibrations of evolvement. They go from the very darkest to the very lightest. There can be infinitesimal shades from one end of the spectrum to the other and that is how it is with so called levels. Each family group could be a slightly different shade of colour or vibration to the next one. Each time a soul returns to a family group and has learned lessons that they were sent to do, then that raises the vibrations of the whole group, so if you compare it to a shade of colour then that group would become a slightly lighter shade.

Some members may raise their vibrations of their knowledge, while they are in the spirit plane. As you know learning goes on in the spirit plane as well as other realms. They could every time they return, increase their group’s vibration a tiny shade by the knowledge they have learned that particular time. If you looked at say a middle level, in a group of a hundred families in that middle level, you would see the different shades of brightness of each of those groups and this can change constantly as new knowledge and learning is brought into each group.

Some times the difference in their vibration is very hard to tell because it is so minute. Other times it can be easily felt. Although we might say they are in a mid range, there is no beginning or end to the mid range. It is a continual lifting of vibration from the lowest to the highest.

Mediums often see the difference in brightness when someone comes through to work with them and that doesn’t include all of the levels as higher vibrations are not able to come down to human levels so the ones coming through are not representative of all the possible levels of vibrations. So you can see that it is quite a variation but in degrees, not levels.

It is important not to become too focused on the names or labels used in teaching as it only a tool to facilitate learning while you are using Earthly bodies. Spirit speaks the language of telepathy and sends ideas and thoughts, not actual words. A medium may receive messages in many different formats and interprets as best as they are able. Some concepts may be very profound and difficult to find the words to clearly explain what has been given.

You have been talking a lot lately about the immortality of your soul and we would affirm that you’ve come from oneness and you will return to oneness. When you return, you will bring back perfection with you. You return when you have learnt all there is to learn and you bring back immenseness that enriches the total. The total needs to grow and to become greater. The vibrations have to increase in intensity. That is why we are trying to bring across the message of how important it is to help each other. The aim of the Universe is to grow in immensity and to do this we must increase the intensity and level of vibrations. We need as many as possible to raise their vibrations.

The whole Universe is one and not separate as in a spirit world and an Earth world. We are but one. Compare it to being in your sleep wear at home and being dressed in a suit for work. You are the same person. You are just wearing different clothing for doing different things. At the end of the day you will come home and get back into your pyjamas. You are a spirit whether you are in a human body or you are travelling unencumbered in just your spirit energy.

We emphasise the sameness as we want you to stop thinking of yourselves as different from spirit or each other. You have come to Earth to grow and develop because it is important to all of us whether we be free roaming or in Earth bodies, to grow and raise our vibrations. When we do this, we lift the whole Universe a little. The more spirits that can raise the vibrations, the greater the total or oneness becomes, which is our aim. This is why we are so willing to help any on Earth or in just spirit form whenever they allow us. It is for everyone’s benefit that we grow as when someone raises their vibrations, it raises us all. When we have many lifting themselves, it makes a great difference.

Share your knowledge and gifts with others. Encourage people to be positive. The more you help others lift their vibrations, the more you will help yourself. You come from the one source. You will return to the same source. You are just divided for the purpose of learning. Try to learn more. This doesn’t necessarily mean studying or taking courses, although that could be of benefit. Life is the greatest educator. Take time to think about what is good and what is detrimental.

Try to do what you think is right. Not everyone will agree on what is right and what is wrong. Sometimes it is just subjective and at other times it is experience which sets our beliefs. It is not so important. What is important is that you think about it and make the effort to do what you believe is right. Listen to many, but make your own decisions. We need differences the world to make the balance. We can’t have everything moving in the same direction at once. We need ebbs and flows and eventually, hopefully, the tide will slowly move higher and higher.

Balance is the secret of the world and we must each find the balance that is right for ourselves for where we are at this time.

We have the system of offering spirits the opportunity of an Earthly life to encourage all to experience different aspects of all possibilities. Some times several realisations can come through one incident and we do try and work it that maximum value is gained in each life as it is not something that most of us wish to keep undertaking.

Although those of you currently on Earth do not wish to leave that plane, when you’re here, few are in a hurry to go back. It’s thrilling to think you have the opportunity to learn and advance but it’s a little like sitting exams. You want to get them over and done with so you may move on, but no one looks forward to the experience. It’s only the ongoing desire to develop that keeps people going back to your sphere. Life this side is so much more beautiful and easy. We don’t have punishing consequences; we don’t experience fear or despair. It is especially daunting for those who have chosen a difficult life.

The existence as a poor third world being is certainly one that spirits dread. You must all endure a similar experience or you can’t go forward. It’s not one where you can go forward very much as there is little variation in these lives, but the hopelessness is a valuable experience and one that sorely tests your charitable concepts. The mind is dulled from malnutrition as is the body. Life is tedious as it is desperate. You don’t know any different and that is the only saving grace. Raising the world’s compassion is not their main focus. It’s the personal experience that is the main point in choosing this existence. It’s only in modern times that media has been available to present the world with its horrors.

The Earth used to be more abundant as humans had not stripped it bare in so many places, but there were always situations available where poverty was extreme. There was slavery, genocide, famines and outcasts. There have always been elements of man that will exploit and treat others badly and nature is not always abundant.

Our lives are chosen with our full knowledge and consent but how much we learn and grow is entirely up to the individual. There are always variations to the life plan once we start making our free will choices but we will be encouraged into situations that will give us opportunities to learn and grow in some aspect. Those that we miss will be provided to us again at another time.

No longer can we pretend ignorance of the atrocities that are committed in places far from our home. No longer can we turn a blind eye on the poverty and desperation of others whilst we tell ourselves we don’t know how to help or it is their own fault.

We need to rid ourselves of our tribal tendencies which lead us to care only about those who live close to us, who look like us and we can identify as “could be me”. We are becoming one tribe, the human tribe. There is no longer an excuse for them and us. We marry those who come from far away places, we communicate with people who once spoke a language foreign to our ears. We buy their manufactured goods and we sell them our food and resources. We are merging into one people, making it difficult at times to pinpoint the origins of families.

We have always been one people. DNA proves this. But now we are merging in appearance and in culture. Don’t the English love their curries? And the Japanese the American culture? Many groups are losing their great traditions but the upside is the difficulty to hate a race when your favourite sister-in-law comes from that country and has told you of the things she loves about her family’s customs.

How can we not have compassion for those fleeing terror and poverty? What would you do if it was your family that was waiting for the door knock that would take your brother away to be tortured and killed? What if you had no food for your children and no way to obtain any. Not today, tomorrow or next week. If your wife or sister knew that any day she could be brutally raped and maimed.

For many, it is impossible to wait in queue for a visa. Such things do not exist in their environment or they do not meet the requirements that someone has set down. If it was you. If it was your family, would you not do what ever it took to save them? Would it really matter to you if your actions were not going to meet with someone elses rules or approval.

Open your heart to those who have so little, those who live in daily terror. Don’t condemn someone for trying to save themselves and their loved ones. Be grateful that it is not you is such a situation. God loves us all, no matter into which family or culture we were born. Do you think God is wrong?

A few years after my Dad died he came through to me with these words. Please be aware that each person’s experiences may differ as we project our own reality and comforts.

When you land, it is so very, very soft like falling into a cloud. You feel cosseted and soft like a little baby and you just allow yourself to be tucked up into the cocoon of softness. You feel so protected and you don’t want to do anything for yourself. You just want to be cared for as it is such a relief after the hardness of the earthly life. You know there are loved ones surrounding you but you just accept it knowing they will still be there after you have rested. You go into this aware but don’t care state, while you recover from the ordeal you have been through.

Eventually, when you start to feel energised, you see images of your life. It is like being wrapped in this soft cocoon while holograms are shown in front of you. It is not shown from the beginning to the end but rather excerpts are shown to you. It is just brief incidents to begin with and then later you start to want to look deeper into the incidents and you begin to see it all in greater depth. You start to see why you reacted as you did and how it affected other people. They concentrate on showing you incidents with your loved ones at first and as you begin to understand more about yourself and your life, you are shown smaller incidents and encounters with those you hardly remember. With your new heightened awareness, you can see much in the interactions you thought so little about at the time. You can see your progress in the different way you react when confronted by situations. I have been told sometimes it is the other way and people go backwards in their evolvement.

A Greener World

Pleasure may be found in simple things. In watching creatures in their natural habitat or focusing on the beauty of the flora and the majestic sweep of the landscape. Immersing ourselves in the observation and appreciation of nature and watching the busyness of micro eco systems should lift our spirits and remind of us we are part of a much larger world. Does the ant care we have financial worries? He is far too engrossed with transporting that tasty titbit all the way back to the nest for all to share.

 As the dominant species, we should have a care for all those who rely on our goodwill for their survival. We have the ability to reason and make considered decisions. Our mental capabilities mean that we have been able to discover diverse ways to make our life more comfortable. Advancements in technology now need to be used to fix the problems created by our free and easy use of the Earth’s resources and our mania for creating whatever we desire without consideration of the effects of waste.

 Society has spent years developing methods to successfully clothe, feed and heal ourselves. We also discovered how to make exciting toys for our entertainment. As our education and communications improved, it became apparent just how much destruction our way of life was causing mother earth and her other inhabitants.

 We have coursed through the scientific age and now our knowledge needs to be used to stop further destruction and repair the damage already imbedded. As the knowledge gained by the space programmes has been filtered down into better products for the earth plane, so does our advancement in technology need to be used to find ways of living in harmony with what is left of our earthly resources and bringing back the damaged areas to a pristine and bountiful area.

 Our focus needs to be on reducing pollution and waste and cleverly disposing of what is used. We need to grow more nutritious food in less space. Rivers and oceans need to be cleared of plastic and other disposed items. Humans must stop taking over all the land for their own personal use. The Earth can’t survive with just humans and domestic animals. We need birds, bees, insects, wild animals and vegetation and they need land and clean waterways. The planet must be balanced.

 There is room for everyone if it’s managed carefully. Enough food could be produced to feed every person satisfactorily if there was sufficient cooperation throughout the world.

Our Human Experience

My guides have shown me that our pure essence is one of unconditional love and only our human substance can house the negative aspects of ourselves. Therefore the more we nourish and grow our spiritual side, the less negativity will live within us.

We should however honour both the positive and negative aspects of ourselves as while we are here, we are both human and spirit and we carry all the traits that this encompasses. Our genes gave us certain traits, as has our environment and past experiences. The idea is that we try to become the best we can with what we have been given. The closer we are to our spiritual side, the easier it is for us to take difficulties in our stride and maintain our inner peace. Guilt is a waste of your energy and will only bring you down. Take the positive approach that you’re glad you are able to see your action was not the best and you will make an effort to act differently next time.

Spirit loves us and will help whenever asked. Sometimes we don’t recognize the help because what we think we need is not in our long term best interest or is not part of the greater plan we agreed before arriving here and will interfere in the experience we need.
This is why life can be so much more if we have found inner peace and are able to accept what life presents, work through it and look at the great things we have rather than dwell on the negatives.

 To achieve these results, we need to divert our resources into developing technology to turn deserts into farms, for the richer to support the poorer to set them up with facilities to change their poor land into fertile farms. We need our clever people to use our resources and technology to improve logistics and show us best practices for providing what we can close to the point of consumption.

On our own doorstep, we have the option to support those who are trying to make this a better, greener world. We must be willing to support a system whereby the best outcomes for society and the planet are more important than profits. We can say no to buying pretend food and teach our children to eat healthily and moderately. We can teach them compassion and practice it ourselves.

 At the end of the day, happiness will not be achieved by being the most affluent. You have a right to expect your needs to be met and you don’t want to be stressed by debt, but your happiness will come with the enrichment of your soul, not your bank account. Support those practices which will help all the planet so everyone can enjoy a decent life and our beautiful Earth may be restored to its bountiful beauty.
