what started your search for the truths ?

Post by laura ann on May 25th 2013, 4:02 pm

Everyone has a different reason on what started them on their spiritual path.

Did you have an experience of some kind that started you searching for answers ?
Did you come from a family of psychics?
Did sci fi movies and books peek your interest?

What got you started ?How did your journey begin ?

Well laura ann mine only came about four years ago just after I lost my late dog Petra. Everybody tells you our animals and family soon will come to say there last farewell and goodbye, as I convinced myself that Petra would. Never had really happened in the past, guess its because I never kept asking for that person to come. But my Petra did come one morning around three or four months later, and it was real, not imaginary, as I have posted before that the rest of the day I was beaming with happiness and literally floating off the ground, well that was sure the feeling I got, again never of experiencing that feeling before. Which all this led me to now believe there is more strange things in this world that we have yet to fully appreciate that can, or will occur, its down to us to keep an open mind.

Just an afterthought, maybe its all down to, " mind over matter, " maybe we could achieve anything we want, just have to believe in it, and will it to happen, like the day I was taken into isolation ward soon after I gave birth, 44 years ago. the first night I awoke literally soaking in sweat, I was not allowed out of what felt the tiniest room, not even outside the door, the window only opened a fraction, with me poking my head as close to it as I could, just to get some air. This room was getting smaller, closing in on me, I was forever splashing my face in the basin with cold water, literally wringing the top of my nightie, I just could not get back to sleep. That was until I laid deadly still on top of the bed-cover, closed my eyes and kept willing myself saying " you are getting colder, you are getting colder " I did not move a muscle, and I actually did start cooling down, and even got myself back to sleep.

as long as I can remember, but in them days - People thought you were cracked so it wasn't really discussed.

I remember a time when there was a gathering on our house( think a Uncle? at died) and I overheard a conversation re my dad suddenly "seeing"some strange guy in the corner of the dining room, I remember thinking - gatecrasher lol but I was not surprised or frightened at all, in fact I looked at it as normal.

For me it goes back almost as long as i can remember even though I never said anything to anyone.
As I got older my interest in understanding got stronger.
I remember hearing my name called but no one ever being there.
I remember having accidents but no one believed me when I would say someone hit me at my ankles and made me fall down the stairs.

I remember hearing footsteps in my home and no one home but me.
as time went on I remember tapping on my shoulder when i worked and turning and noone ever there.
I rememebr appliances turning on and off by themselves etc.
But ten eleven years ago all hell broke loose around me energy wise and kundalani wise that sent me searching for many many answers.

A voice told me it was time I had to wake up that I could not put it off any longer so it came fast and furious. Apparantly I had said No to being awakened that I needed to get my children raised first....
Needless to say it almost did take my mind lol lol... toooooo much tooooo fast.
But I got through it , gained much understanding and am still searching for understandings.

What about the rest of you.. Stephen, Sunny, Deb, Mia etc... what started your paths????

, awesome topic.

My spiritual journey started with my first prayer to God in the name of Jesus Christ when I was five years old. I was born an empath and telepathic. At six I was told by my mother that folks can not hear other folks thoughts so I quit worrying about it. In my early teens I discovered that women (girls) could hear my thoughts but that men couldn't. At twenty-three I begin to explore the yogi mystic world. At somewhere in my middle to late forties I entered into exploring the computer chat room world and from there into exploring the computer message board world as it was just starting to come into existence. In the computer message board world I met all kinds of people from all over the world. Some of those people were very powerful psychics. From these people I learned that there is no such thing as distance. That all of the world can be one spot to the psychic mind. And I learned about the vast and many worlds that are available to the psychic mind to explore. Eleven years ago I met Lord Shiva and he taught me over these years what I know about yogi stuff. At this point in time in my spiritual journey I am exploring how to inter into what most folks call normal reality. I have never been normal so this is turning out to be a challenge. Love, sunny

All my life I had known I was in this world for a reason and
a purpose but never expected that my purpose would be in the spiritual. I am the first to say I never wanted the
spiritual as it was my wife who had the interest. When things started to happen to me I fought
against it for 10 years but when I developed an interest in healing that was
when spirit got their hooks into me and never took them out



It is pointless describing every thing I went through but I will
mention two things; the first was spirit took my health away so I would hear
the call of spirit and that point has been confirmed



The second point is that one day my spirit left my body and
went seeking the reason of why did I exist and my spirit knew exactly where it
had to go to get the answer but spirit would not let my spirit get their



One year after that experience spirit finely answered my
question as I had to discover for myself with a little nudge from spirit about
my existence and at the same time of that happening spirit gave me my spiritual
name which is Arbel

I was born an empath and telepathic
I too am empathic and have been as long as i can remember.. just didnt know what it was or that it was actually a gift not all embraced.
I am also telepathic but only with certain people....I can occasionally hear when someone speaks from far away...

I am loving the diverse reasons people stepped on this pathway...

Post by sunmystic on May 26th 2013, 3:39 pm

I wonder what affect being born empathic and telepathic or not being born empathic and telepathic has on one's spiritual journey? It seems to me that folks that are not born empathic and telepathic have an easier time with their spiritual journey and that things are less complicated for them. Being born empathic and telepathic can make one mean because they are around folks that are just not nice. And when one is empathic and telepathic these two gifts become an interesting weapon when it comes to being mean. In my reality over coming this weapon advantage has been a difficult challenge relative to my spiritual journey. My first challenge was to not be mean to nice people with or without using these gift weapons. My second challenge was to not use these gift weapons on mean people. Not being mean to nice people was easy once I found out that there actually are nice people. The not instantly going to war and invoking these gifts as weapons with mean or negatively inclined people has been a much more difficult challenge and the working to over come this difficult challenge has had a major affect on my spiritual journey. It made my spiritual journey something more complicated than it needed to be.

This could sort of lead to the question, "What things make one's spiritual journey more complicated than it needs to be?" sunmystic

And when one is empathic and telepathic these two gifts become an interesting weapon when it comes to being mean.

I do not agree with one word of this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

being empathic allows you to feel a room upon entry.
it allows you to self protect against hostile energies.
It allows one to feel love more intensly etc
It does not as far as I am concerned make a person MEAN....

Being mean and using it as a weapon is a persons choice.

Frankly I over time have come to find their are many more not nice people out there then nice people.. but their choice of personality and energy need not be mine regardless of whether a person is empathic or not.

I do however agree it may make a spiritual path a little harder as we feel everything more intensly. We anger easier and love more passionately.

Your choices are yours and should not be projected as the choices of others.

I personally can find something good about everyone if I have to go to their toenails!!!!!!!!!!!

But there is never a reason to be MEAN to anyone... simply 'walk away'

No Laura Ann I will not. You will have to talk to one of the other administrators. If my post is deleted or edited it will set precedence and all posts that are not precisely on topic or contain things that are not precisely on topic will have to be deleted or edited and those individuals that have committed deviations from the "new" protocol that would be established would have to be reprimanded. Laura Ann I have not broken the established convention of this message board and because you asked the question "next:" without defining what you ment by "next" I have made a valid mistake "which I apologize for. Also Laura Ann if anybody else had made the post that I made you would not have filed a formal complaint. The only reason that you are filing a formal complaint is because you object to me as a personality, which you have made clear several times over the past and present. Laura Ann because I am the jr. administrator on this message board and all other administrators are senior and are my bosses and because you have filed a formal complaint, what they decide to do will be "Law". sunmystic

what formal complaint?????????? it was a simple request for a new thread started ..again NOTHING MORE ..so we would not divert from the original topic as we tend to do a lot.

Also Laura Ann if anybody else had made the post that I made you would not have filed a formal complaint.
there is no complaint or formal request.. just a simple request that is being turned into something it is not..
Sunny I have never had a problem with you other then often I dont understand your words.. I often feel you dont allow others their beliefs nicely.
I feel you dislike me greatly but I have no issues with that actually, as you are welcome to your feelings.
I simply wanted you to start your question as a new thread.NOTHING MORE

All you had to do was to PM me and I would have apologized and removed it. If there was something that you were doing that I had a question about I would show you the courtesy of PMing you to discuss it as I would anybody else on this message board. Yes, as has been said, "A person has to be themselves to be honest with them self." I do not have to be myself if I can learn a better way to do it. And I do not have a problem with exploring better ways to do it when these better ways are brought to my attention. If you or anybody else has ways that you or they think that I can be a better administrator, then I am willing to discuss it. If you or anybody else has a complaint about me or suggestions on how I can be a better administrator, then PM me and I will attempt to create a positive approach to solving it and over time getting it solved. sunmystic

What got you started ?How did your journey begin ?

My journey started almost 3 years ago while I was on vacation in MA and visiting my sister's house. My grandmother, who passed when I was 2 years old, appeared to me one night while I was sleeping in my nieces old bedroom. She appeared laying strait out off the floor in mid air with her arms around both her young boys she lost when they were young babies and at the side of the bed was a young boy about three. I knew immediately it was her and her 3 sons she lost to illness. Just before I went on vacation that year I had been doing my family tree and and I discovered she had lost her 3 sons. This was something never talked about when I was young and my father passed when I was 21 so we never knew about it. I figured my grandmother was letting me know she knew that I was aware of her loss. I was my grandmothers first grandchild and I'm sure we would have been very close but she was taken from us too soon. She is with me all the time now. I talked to her through my pendulum and I know she is my guide. I see her in my 3rd eye all the time.
So this was the beginning of my journey and since them I have just been trying to learn as much as I can about spiritualism. It hasn't happened as quickly as I would like it too because we have had many happenings in our personal lives, mostly my husbands. I have been able to help him through some terrible losses in the last few years. My knowledge that there is another side and we don't ever die, we just leave our loaned body behind and return to our spiritual one, our true self, has helped my family adjust to their losses. I believe I was meant to discover spirit when my did so I would be here for them in their need. My journey continues and this board has become a big part of it now. I love coming here and being able to share with others who understand and listen to their stories and gain more knowledge. Thanks Laura for starting this post! Good Post Wink

I do not really like to discuss how I came to my path.
I was a neglected child.Neither my mother or my father I
bonded to.I began at a very young age to fantasize in order
to try and escape the world I found myself in.I found within myself
a wonderful world of friends and people I could bond to.
In a way I still feel this world is with me.
At school I had no friends and was regularly beaten by the teachers
for poor grades.I never complained.I learnt while being caned to
dissociate from my body.
My mother committed suicide when I was 16 years old and my father
was incapable of being a father.Being the eldest in the family it
fell to me to help my brothers.This I did while studying full time at
university.
I really took of mystically after initiation into sant mat a path of sound
and light.I started being pulled into my third eye and have travelled into
many dimensions and met amazing people.
I do not see spirits outside me.All contact is always within.
I have made up with both my mother and father and totally forgiven them.
They really just did not know what they did to their children.

Tell us about yourself : Iím a widow; I lost my spouse April 16, 1999 to a broken heart and Cancer. He was a Native American. I have lived on his Reservation in California for 37 years. We were married 23 years. We had two children, lost one to a drunk driver in 97 before my spouse died. I started my spiritual journey when son passed; but woke up to spirituality abruptly June 2009 when I had an event reading by James Van Praagh and he brought through eight deceased relatives. I would love to be a medium in the future, and share that spiritual connection with those who have lost. I take photos of spirits in clouds. One of my favorite spirit photographs at night is an apparition of a Native American Male.

Dear Deb,
Thank you for your kind comment.
I had doubts about whether to leave my post up.
But something told me it is time to let go and
one of the best ways is to write about it and let
other people read it.
One thing I have actually experienced is that ,that which
is the inner source pulses.It is renewing itself at every pulse.
This is why change is always possible.
Memories make a mold, but to grow it is necessary to break
it and remake it into something new.
You are an excellent example of this.
In a way your honesty and openness
encouraged me to write about my past.
so thanks
Stephen

Skfarblu, Stephen, I surely do understand that it takes a lot for one to open up about past events, situations, when these are the things we want to be shutting out of our minds. It takes courage in opening up, and there is a right time, something tells us this is the right time to post our thoughts and past stories.


We can move on, and strive for the perfect and happy life that we so deserve, but we can never escape our past. Whats happened has happened. Again may I say, " everything happens for a reason. " And to that, whether we find that reason in this lifetime or the next is anyones guess.

Very true what you wrote Jackie.Thanks for your kind thoughts.
I read today that as people age we begin to move out of the age
which we represent.We represent the first generation after the WW2.
The framework of that period has loosened and there is no longer
a need to fit in anymore.It has become easier to loosen up and stop
playing a role.
Have a nice day

Gosh Stephen, I'm humbled. Thank you for the nice comment. I love to share. Again, in my experiences, sharing has helped many who are in my life. Especially who I work with.

There is no better way to experience than your own personal experience but hearing others experiences walks you down the path to understanding and opening yourself to the possibility of openness of ones-self.
So I'm so happy to read that my openness has helped you express your feelings and memories. This is a healing process. And you have done very well.

There have been a few things I've posted here that I have second thoughts of but oh well, when I hit send I figure I've shared my experience for a reason.

You are welcome ((((( Heart Pump Stephen Heart Pump )))))

To Everyone here who has posted from their Heart Pump

We must forgive in this lifetime; it is one of our reason's for being.
I had to learn this also.


In my own being I had to forgive . . . . . .
My birthmother for giving me up for adoption.
* never holding me or contacting after the separation. (her right)
* allowing me to meat her when I found her after 31 years
* Forgiving her for becoming ill a few years after I met her.


In my own being I had to forgive . . . . . .
My parents for being strict in my teen years - not allowing me independence.
* getting beat with a cane that was a Traditional Irish Black Thorn Walking Stick (only once) see pix.
* I really had a great life growing up. Great parents, it only changed when I wanted independence. I felt smothered.
* They loved me unconditionally. I was a spoiled child in a way. Two trips to Europe 61' & 71'. Had my own room. I did not always get my own way but I think being an only child I was spoiled. Love spoiled Wink
* Forgive my daddy for working graveyard when I was young. He was gone or asleep and when John Glen went up into space I thought it was my father. Had panic attach Wink


In my own being I had to forgive . . . . . .
My parents who died early in my life.
* Mother died from cancer when I was 25. Had a stroke the day my 34 yr old daughter was born; died 5 months later.
* Father had a massive stroke 2 yr later, became a hateful of life and I could not please him. That was very challenging. He disliked my husband and was not close to my kids. My daughter was 3 when dad had a stroke, my sin was 2 yr younger. Dad lived for 9 years meant as can be.
* But now having seen him in spirit....many years after his passing in 91. He is very happy, loving, kind and loves my Tommy and husband in spirit.
* I did not see my father in dreams UNTIL I FORGAVE HIM!!!


In my own being I had to forgive . . . . . .
My husband for dying too early.
* Having 23 great years together but losing him when he was 48.
* My myself for per-judging my husband and his own habits.
He was perfect in every way after I understood how each being on this Earth has their own personality; has a right to that personality due to their path of life. I am not to pre-judge them for their actions or beliefs.
* I married him knowing he drank. Not major but he did go cruising with the guys in the back canyons or at a few local bars during our young years. He was a friend to everyone. Everyone loved him. He was a peacemaker and a kind and helping man. But I would get mad when he would be gone for hours; knowing that he was drinking. Be it with his father or friends.
* Knowing now that his drinking issues were probably a past life issue and he was in this life to overcome them. All I was doing was getting in the way!

I think we have to forgive our-selves for many things in life due to the fact that we know no better. We are learning.....that is why we are here. We only learn through our experiences.


In my own thoughts I had to forgive . . . . . .
One boss who was my husband's cousin. Who became my boss around 2001. Caring he was and friendly until one day....and due to me he had a stroke. Not at work but prior to coming the next morning to work. I had a brother-in-law who was extreamly jealous of me and my husband. (long story) This B.I.L. wanted to do harm to me so he went to work one day and cussed out my boss (his uncle) and was trying to get me fired. It caused my boss to have a stroke the next morning. He was off for 2 months, came back and was mean as ever. Short tempered and uncaring. He would cuss at us on the work radio. Framed me in a situation regarding a purchase that he signed for and I got suspended for. I wrote a poem to him (never gave it to him) that spit out all my feelings about him and his mean personality since the stroke. The best 2 weeks off of work I ever had.
* He was fired for stealing property while I was on a out of state seminar "he approved".
* Since I forgave him during my suspension.....and his being let go. I see him non and then and I give him a hug. I shared the book I edited and wrote a chapter in with him and he loved it and said "hurry and write your next book" I want the first copy. LOL



In my own thoughts I had to forgive . . . . . .
My Brother-In-Law for being the hateful, jealous, and vindictive person he was during my married years and after my husband died.
* He was always jealous of my husband. B.I.L. was in Viet Nam a short time....and when my husband told me after 23 years that he was in Viet Nam and never told anyone Harold was furious. He was mad about it. HE was jealous that my husband was building an addition for their father. He was jealous that "dad" gave us land across the street but not him because he turned it down years prior.
* had to forgive him for trying to take my house away from me after my husband died. He tried removing me from where I lived for 36 years.
* I forgave him before he died in 2008 but June 2009 at the James Van Praagh Event reading I had my brother-in-law came with my husband and was standing behind me and husband to his right. James Van Praagh said that he was there and I believe it was to acknowledge to me that he knew I had forgiven him.
(love those spiritual connections)


In my own thoughts I had to forgive . . . . . .
Myself for pre-judging situations, people and things in my younger life. Sometimes it takes us a long time to get it. This whole life path is filled with people and situations that are ONLY for our HIGHEST GOOD!!

I'm still not perfect especially at work.
Things happen that I don't understand why. But I do know that I am not responsible for other people's emotions and actions personalities etc..........................I keep reminding myself of that.


Here are some book recommendations on the topic of
* LIFE EXPERIENCES
* FORGIVENESS

One thing that ALWAYS HELPS ME CENTER.........
Is knowing that Spirit Loves Me Unconditionally!


In the book "Your Soul's Plan"


Would you like to understand the deeper meaning of your greatest challenges? I highly recommend Robert Schwartz. I was privileged to speak to him once. He is a quiet humble man. I was able to have our library carry his book. That is his goal to get as many libraries to carry the two books.

Your Soulís Plan focuses exclusively on the pre-birth planning of life challenges.

30 pg free read
this pops up first as an overview of him.

HIS BOOKS(Your Soul's Plan and Your Soul's Gift) HAVE SINGLE E-CHAPTERS ON AMAZON.


Your Soul's Plan eChapters

Stand-alone eChapters (ebooks) are also available from my first book, Your Soulís Plan:

Ch. 2: Physical Illness
Ch. 3: Parenting Handicapped Children
Ch. 5: Drug Addiction and Alcoholism
Ch. 6: Death of a Loved One


--------------------------------------------------- 2nd book
His second book explores two topics that donít necessarily fall into the challenge category: spiritual awakening (though certainly an awakening can be challenging), and the pre-birth planning we do with our future pets. If you love animals you will be particularly touched to see how they agree to support us in our upcoming incarnation. Second, his new book discusses the subject of healing in greater range and depth. Third, Your Soulís Gift explores the pre-birth planning of circumstances and experiences that were not discussed in his first book: miscarriage, abortion, care-giving, abusive relationships, sexuality, incest, adoption, poverty, suicide, rape, and mental illness.

Your Soul's Gift eChapters

Each chapter in my new book, Your Soulís Gift, is available as a stand-alone eChapter (ebook) on Amazon:

Ch. 1: Healing
(This chapter is free on all
Amazon sites.)
Ch. 2: Spiritual Awakening
Ch. 3: Miscarriage and Abortion
Ch. 4: Caregiving
Ch. 5: Pets
Ch. 6: Abusive Relationships
Ch. 7: Sexuality
Ch. 8: Incest
Ch. 9: Adoption
Ch. 10: Poverty
Ch. 11: Suicide
Ch. 12: Rape
Ch. 13: Mental Illness[u]


------------------------------------------------------
then of course my all time favorite of James Van Praagh.


UNFINISHED BUSINESS: What the Dead can Teach Us About Life

http://www.vanpraagh.com/store/book/unfinished-business-what-dead-can-teach-us-about-life

Unfinished Business is filled with shocking and emotional stories of Van Praagh's communication with loved ones who cross over the barrier between the living and the dead to send messages to those whom they have left behind. Through these pro-found true stories, Van Praagh guides us on an adventure into the spirit world. The lessons for the living that he has learned from these experiences range from the dangers of emotional baggage caused by guilt, fear, and regret to the importance of karma, forgiveness, and taking responsibility for our actions. Van Praagh shares with us now the wisdom that, without him, we would only gain after death.

Hi Deb,
Yes to forgive in one's life time is important.
It makes it easier to let go of memories,in the
sense they no longer own us and run our lives.
What a horrible stick.Who thinks of these things?
Well thanks to Laura Ann for starting this post.
Now all the secrets are no longer so.
Stephen
