I haven’t posted a blog for Soul Whispering for a long time. I thought maybe I was all “written out”, that I’d written all I had to write and that was it!
Life has been very focused in the physical for the past few months, although that doesn’t of course mean I’m not always reflecting on what’s going on in my life and on my spiritual path.
Sometimes it can feel like we’ve fallen off the path – I know I often felt that in my early days of blundering around in the dark. We never fall off the path once we’re on it, but we might head off in a direction, just for a while, that takes us somewhere completely different and gives us an opportunity to learn something else about ourselves and about life.
The last few months I’ve felt a bit like I’m walking through wet cement. I was actually going to say concrete, but then I realised that concrete has those bumpy bits of stone or aggregate in it that you’d keep kicking your toes or hurting your arches on … ouch! It hasn’t been like that. It’s been smooth, but slow, and it’s felt a bit heavy. I’m just glad that in my mind the cement is still wet, because I’m still certainly able to move forwards, rather than feeling completely stuck in hardened cement or stagnant!
I was reflecting to one of my beautiful friends that while everyone else is talking about and working with spirit in many different and amazing ways, I’ve been firmly grounded – but not quite anchored by my cement drying – in what I need to do. That’s been supporting people very much in the physical – lots of skin conditions coming into the clinic, lots of discussion around heavy metal toxicity and vaccination damage, renovating the kitchen, and doing the final two modules for my degree upgrade which are, unsurprisingly, grounded in the scientific – critical analysis x 2! How interesting I left these two for last, because you really have to be in your head and grounded in the earth to make any sense of this subject.
I often think back to a reading I had about 20 years ago from a psychic. There was a lot of information but the one thing that I always remember was that he told me I was seeded from Abraham; that this was my soul family from way back and that my incarnations had always been from this line and this planet. Now if you’re not sure who Abraham is, here’s a little snippet from the bible, not one of my frequent references these days, but nonetheless interesting.
In Genesis 12, the LORD spoke to Abram (as he was called then) (1):
“Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:1-3
So God calls up Abraham and he gives him this big job – to leave his country and his family, to blindly go where God directed him and to become the father of the Jewish faith! Abraham’s an ordinary bloke and supposedly he’s 75 at this time, so he just laughs because he’s nobody special and he’s not quite sure why he’s been picked for this big job. It’s all a bit out of his comfort zone.
However, he eventually does as he’s directed with a few hiccups along the way because he was only human and he was a bit fearful. Once Abraham was on track for this big job, God then tested him. He told him to take his only son up to the top of a mountain and sacrifice him, and Abraham, because God had delivered on his other promises, was prepared to do that. Luckily God stopped him because it was really a test and that’s probably the moral of the story in many ways.
Joshua David Stone in The Complete Ascension Manual (2), my most favourite book of the last 20+ years, explains that Melchizedek was the spiritual teacher of Abraham and of many of our other great prophets. He gave Abraham the responsibility of keeping alive the truth of the one God and although we think of him as being the father of the Jewish faith, he is in fact venerated by the Christian and Muslim faiths as well.
Melchizedek told Abraham “Look up to the heavens and number the stars if you are able. So numerous shall your seed be.” In other words, your children and ancestors will have this great job and will be widely spread throughout the world, probably not just through the religions above, but any faith where we believe in one God, spirit, source, etc. Those of us who are of this planet are likely all related through Abraham’s seed, in other words soul family.
So why else am I quoting from the bible, apart from having a supposed connection with Abraham and the tribe of Israel? Probably because, like Abraham, we are sometimes given jobs to do in life and on the spiritual path that we may not feel we’re up to doing or that perhaps we don’t actually want to do. Maybe the job doesn’t seem as exciting as everyone else’s or maybe it just all seems too hard or too big. But sometimes if we put our shoulder to the wheel and work through the process, the rewards are on the other side and we spread the good word and hold the energy.
So for the past three months, I really have been shoulder to the wheel. My garden is feeling a bit unloved and certainly unpruned, my house is not as tidy or clean as I’d like, my diary is chokkers with a waiting list and I’m walking through cement to get my assignments done. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love being a homeopath and the process of supporting people on their journey, but sometimes everything else can feel a bit heavy and hard to process. I just have to focus on those one or two things and let everything else go for the time being.
What I do know is that at the end of this time, where life has felt like all work and no play, there will be a reward. It may just be that I finish my degree and get to have more time for blogging and gardening. But whatever it is, it will be another phase in life and on the path. It could be more of the same with a different lesson at the end, or it could be something amazing. Whatever it turns out to be, we need to see each phase as where we’re meant to be and doing what we’re meant to be doing. Sometimes we just need to be totally grounded because we are holding the energy while others do the work at that time.
We can’t force the issue and we shouldn’t feel like we’re not doing anything valuable and not going anywhere. Each day is a learning process in life on earth. And when we can feel like we’re walking through wet cement, we need to get on with the job and give thanks, like Abraham, that we are guided even if we have no idea what this is all about and where we’re going, because all will be revealed if we just stick with it.
Just as I was finishing this blog the lovely Marcia, from Star Sister Astrology, shared information about the full moon, talking about the pain currently coming to us from the centaur planet Chiron. She says “his medicine is the sacred gift that only you can give. It arises right out of the pain that comes from the situation you don’t know how to heal.”
She suggests we “dive into the pain — and into the heart.”
Certainly I feel better now the full moon is here and all the better for getting this blog out of my heart! I hope you are feeling that lightness too …
