This above all; to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as night follows day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man,
Being true to ones self is much more than just being honest.
This Shakespeare quote is how I try to live my life.
Our culture operates on the assumption that people are honest and truthful yet this often isn’t so.
On a “white lie” level; how often do people say what they think the other person wants to hear or lie to get attention & make themselves feel important.
Lying; cheating; stealing and scams are rampant.
On the other hand one could argue that telling the truth is not always kind?
I feel so strongly about telling the truth as I believe it to be that even if I accidentally lie I feel guilty.
What I write I believe either to be true or possible. I am not “into” “absolute ideologies” so I acknowledge this is only my opinion.
The following is a quote from Marion Weinstein’s “Positive Magick”( Bibliography: page 234; Positive Magic: Earth Magic productions New York; First published in 1978 by Simon & Schuster Pocket Books New York)
Ma’Kheru, or The Word of Truth
The concept of Ma’ Kheru, or Maat, was a highly regarded state ofbeing in ancient Egypt. In fact it was always hoped that by the time a person died, he/ she would ha ve reached this state of personal evolution.
In my lifetime society’s attitude to clairvoyance and associated philosophy’s has improved along with attitudes to minority groups such as women; different races; sexual preference; etc. Although there are still many “out there” who consider clairvoyance to be a con at best and evil at worst.
People are free to believe as they choose and I have no desire to alter people’s beliefs or opinions.
I do not require other’s to believe as I do to make it true.
The clairvoyants that I know (including myself) are genuine and honest and coming from integrity. I am very aware that there are charlatans who are more interested in making money than helping people. How prevalent this is difficult to ascertain
I was made aware of a scam last century where people who went for a reading were told that a “hex” had been put on them and were charged $2,000 to remove same. Similar scams still happen
.The way to avoid being conned is to trust ones “gut”!
To quote or maybe paraphrase Dr. Deepak Chopra:” We should always trust our “gut”. Every cell in our bodies has neuropeptides which means every cell thinks. It is better to trust your “gut” because it hasn’t learned to doubt what it thinks.”
I am able to see & communicate with people that have died as well as other discarnate beings. I know that my clairvoyant ability is genuine because I was extremely sceptical in the nineten seventies when I first participated in Spiritualist psychic development groups. I made sure that I was being honest with myself so that I knew I was really “seeing”
I have had numerous experiences to confirm that I am truly communicating with beings who are no longer in this reality.
When I “see” (clairvoyance); “hear” (clairaudience) or” feel” (clairsensience) It flashes in a fraction of a second. To be pedantic a sixteenth of a second. The spiritualist would train us to remember what we saw by putting items on a tray. Covering same with a tea towel; removing the towel for a fraction of a second and then cover the items again. We had to see how many items we could remember and describe.
Knowing that I have helped someone by proving that their loved one is genuinely communicating is my greatest reward. I am not interested in the payment, although I don’t refuse the money. I have done readings for an exchange or for free in some circumstances.
Every one is clairvoyant and everyone creates their own reality. Because our culture teaches that clairvoyance doesn’t exist these abilities atrophy
My first paid reading for the general public was in 1980 when I worked in a coffee lounge called “The Sixth Sense” which was on O’Connell Street North Adelaide.
.Despite my clairvoyant awareness and experiences I do not claim to understand the nature of reality. And I have questioned the nature of reality since I was seven years old. (long; long; ago!)
I have my theories but am also aware that these theories are limited by the cultural and personal concepts that I have. Even analogies cannot really help me understand this multi universe and what is beyond it.
I realize that I am going off on a tangent here but this is something that I often do so I am still being true to me.
Long before the movie The Matrix came out I used to say to the people in my psychic development groups – “Imagine you are in a virtual reality!”
The movie “The Matrix” is creatively brilliant. The surreal colour. The names of the characters; the way the dialogue is presented; the social satire. But it also questions “what is real?”
In my early twenties I was fascinated by the similarity between atoms & solar systems
I can remember associating the concept of an atom with that of a solar system. The protons & neutrons being the sun and the electrons the planets.
Another theory that interests me relates to the human race who I always thought didn’t belong on planet Earth. Humans do not fit in with the ecological balance. They have already destroyed the planet beyond repair according to “Greenpeace” I rarely mention this theory as it offends some people’s religious beliefs but I sometimes wonder if we were genetically engineered by extra terrestrials as slave labour and a food source. These ET’s being the “gods”.
It explains the lack of a missing link and the idea of human sacrifices?
I have been told that there are references to this concept in Mayan manuscripts.
I have been unable to find such information.
The Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy gives the meaning of life as 42. The obvious satire being we are not asking the right question.
And Monty Python’s Meaning of Life – Is it an after dinner mint?
Reading my own blog I question myself as to “What’s the point I am making?” And there seems to be no conclusion!
I guess in looking back on my life being true to myself and “what makes my heart sing” Is to use my clairvoyance to help someone communicate with a loved one who has died and see how much difference it makes when I can give them genuine information from the” deceased “ person. But I believe my dharma is to help the planet as best I can.
