A mystic is one who has a direct experience of the Divine. We are all born with the ability to be mystics and to connect with Source. Each of us has a God-given talent in at least one mystical connection method. Sadly, most of us lose our natural mystical abilities as we grow up, due to lack of encouragement, lack of awareness or downright fear or punishment from our parents and teachers. I was over 50 years old before I recognized my talents in this area. Yikes! That sounds old, but it’s not - I am simply on my own timetable, just as you are.
The good news is that anyone can develop their ability to connect with the Divine, at any age. You are probably doing so already but may not know it!
Today we’ll talk about the four ways we might receive Divine wisdom or guidance. Each of us has talents in one or more of these areas, which are:
Hearing is being able to hear divine guidance, as if you are having a conversation. Some people write what they hear or allow the pen to be moved by spirit; others simply hear it in their heads. Seeing is the ability to perceive mental images that convey the Divine message. Knowing is the ability to perceive thoughts or a knowingness that simply come to you without you knowing how or why you know it. Feeling is the ability to physically feel the energy of another person or to receive guidance through sensations felt in the body.
Contrary to popular belief, none of these are terribly woo-woo abilities. Nor are they the sign of mental illness! It can be as simple as perceiving a sense of Infinite Intelligence when you are in nature.
My talents lie in hearing and knowing. I can carry on a conversation with heavenly spirits when I am in meditation. I talk to God and God replies. During my daily activities, oftentimes a knowingness just "comes to me". Or, I’ll experience a synchronistic event that I’ll recognize as Divine intervention. For instance, I received the title of my first book, Spectacular Support Centers, after hearing a radio show about how soothing the "S" sound is to our ears.
Today, I suggest that you observe yourself. See if any messages or communications come to you through hearing, seeing, knowing or feeling.
Tomorrow, I’ll share a meditation that I use to connect to Divine wisdom.
