My intention for writing this blog is to share wisdom garnered from my life, from my own soul memories and from my spirit guide who tells me his name is Joshua.
Are we ready?
SJ – So Joshua in a few days it will be 2012. do you want to keep writing the blog?
Joshua – Do you?
SJ – Well there are a few followers. What do you want to talk about?
Joshua – Let’s talk about hope.
SJ – What do you want to say about hope?
Joshua – It is an energetically tangible expression of love. Only in love can you have hope. Because it is with love that you are able to expect a happy ending.
SJ – Okay makes sense but what has this got to do with me.
Joshua – You are losing hope about your writing skills and whether or not anyone is interested or listening.
SJ – That is true.
Joshua – So do you enjoy writing?
SJ – Yes
Joshua – Then what does it matter if anyone reads what your write?
SJ – It matters because it validates that my thoughts are worth something to someone and that I’m not wasting my time.
Joshua – Are you feeling worthless?
SJ – Well not worthless in the sense that I don’t deserve to exist, just worthless in that I don’t seem to have the writing skills required to make a living doing something I love to do.
Joshua – Let me tell you something my daughter of the truth seekers, you are not worthless as long as you love one person. And you write because you love the spirit who sends you his thoughts. You write because another soul has whispered his secrets to you and has poured out his heart. So if no one ever reads a word of what you wrote down, know that you have created a small space of love for another soul, a soul who has passed on and is still seeking resolve for the life he just led.
You are a medium for the departed not the living. You offer a chance for someone to review their past history; someone who walked this earth and struggled with demons of their own making; someone who desperately sought happiness; someone who loved and hated; someone who survived the best way they knew how but upon reflection are not sure if they chose the right path or made the right decisions.
I know that you do not just listen, you converse with the departed soul, even offer advice. By allowing this soul to review their life with you, you are ultimately a gateway for eternal bliss to a soul who has left this earth.
A soul who has passed on is no different from a soul on earth, they want to be heard; they want to talk about the life they just led, or what they consider to be their most important life. You are not just a sounding board to them because you have sympathy and empathy for them and their life story. You cry with them and laugh with them. Your reactions validate their lives; the joy they experienced and the pain they suffered.
And this should show you that the desire to be heard will never go away even after one has passed on. Every soul living or dead wants to be heard; to be seen; to not be invisible or forgotten. That is how important a life in human form is.
SJ – Are you saying that one of the reasons a soul wants to be human is so they can act out their emotions?
Joshua – Precisely. It is only in human form that a soul can see, touch, hear and smell the consequences of their actions; only in human form can you be charitable, accomplished, vengeful, remorseful and all of the other emotions you humans are capable of feeling.
SJ – Can’t they do that in the spiritual realm?
Joshua – Not without physical bodies.
SJ – But can’t they feel emotions without a body?
Joshua – Emotions without wet tears on your face or the sound of laughter in your ears do not have the same intensity when you’re only a soul. Or how about when you’re part of an audience and you all applaud in agreement for a good performance.
SJ – It gives the feeling of unity.
Joshua – When a soul tells you his story he can relive these emotions through you. And he can come to some sort of resolution about his life when he lived on the planet earth.
SJ – Well their real life stories are more interesting than most of the fiction I read.
Joshua – That is because you feel the emotion behind the words just as if they were sitting in front of you talking to you, one on one.
SJ – Do you know the spirit who is currently telling me his story?
Joshua – Yes
SJ – What do you think?
Joshua – I think he is keeping you company and lifting your spirits in exchange for your time.
SJ – So as you are speaking to me I am thinking that perhaps I should post his story as a private blog given to only a few people?
Joshua – I think that you are taking a risk.
SJ – Why?
Joshua – You are talking about someone somebody out there knows.
SJ – What do you think might happen?
Joshua – Lawsuit.
SJ – Do you know this for sure or are you just reflecting my own fears back to me?
Joshua – I’m just reflecting back your fears.
SJ – Can’t you give me some legal advice?
Joshua – That’s what lawyers are for. I’m your spiritual advisor. So take a leap, make contact with a solid mass of cells.
SJ – I take it you mean a lawyer?
Joshua – Of course, now do you have any more spiritual matters to talk about?
SJ – No, I think you’ve given me enough to ponder on.
Joshua – Okay then, until next time.
