The one lesson I have learned is we are all intuitives. We are constantly being supported by our inner guidance and our higher power. What does this really mean and how do we know that the guidance we receive is indeed from a benevolent, loving higher power?
Here is how I see it—there are two selves living in us—the mortal self and the real Self.
The mortal self is the life we have chosen as a spiritual being in human form to learn the lessons we must learn in each lifetime to purify ourselves to achieve enlightenment and unite with our real Self.
Our real Self is immortal and pure and is accompanying us lovingly and compassionately in this journey as it has in our previous journeys and will continue to be with us until we are fully realized and forever thereafter live in this divine state of pure awareness—Nirvana.
Having done this work for 26-plus years, I have been fortunate to meet many enlightened souls. We see this in deities, sages, and evolved gurus and luminaries like HH the Dalai Lama, Thick Nhat Hahn, Satguru, Rumi, Gibran, Amma, Thomas Merton, St. Francis of Assisi, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Hafiz, and others that come to mind or ones you have read about and hold in high esteem.
While I am not there—yet—I am getting closer, which is a blessing from my saying YES to the adventure that presented itself in my life in the form of a hard hit. Now, I get to explore more layers of this connection in my work over these years teaching forgiveness and spiritual resiliency.
