Spirituality: So, I am being mentored by a team of loving light spirits. I now speak with them regularly as they advise, guide and educate me about the subtleties of being an enlightened soul and lightworker. This process of education can be tough and finds me feeling inadequate and tearful a lot of the time. It is hard to comprehend and adjust to the reality that everything that I do is visible to my spiritual mentors. I find myself living more mindfully.
I have worked alone since 1989 and have never had to take or give orders. I have existed in a utopian bubble which, whilst at times a tad tough and lonely, has given me autonomy and freedom in my everyday life. As a lightworker I am expected to lead by example and guide others and to be effective I have to listen, learn and act according to the wisdom shared with me by my mentors. This is certainly challenging for me as I am headstrong and overly independent.
Last night I was chatting with one of my mentors and asked her if it were she who, the other day, refilled Rick’s wineglass when we weren’t looking! She said yes and I replied;
“How the hell do you do that without us seeing? Your powers are awe inspiring.”
She then gently reprimanded me and told me to never use the word ‘Awe’. She explained that to be ‘In Awe’ of something or someone was to covet, want or desire it which was not an acceptable state of being for an enlightened soul. She presented the analogy of folks buying a house with a mortgage who for many years were in awe of the day that they were able to pay off the borrowed money and truly own their property. There is nothing wrong with aspiring to pay off that mortgage. To have the ambition to be debt free but to rest in awe of that day is not, she told me, spiritually enlightened.
My main takeaway from our conversation was that it is ok to aspire not desire and that the ideal state for us all to exist in is the state of BEing. This, in brief, is the zone where you exist without judgement or expectation and live with gratitude for the now.
