I FEEL HONOURED
Every day, I scan social media, particularly Facebook, to learn what is going on, who’s posting and what can I learn. More than ever before, I’m now venturing outside of the Spirited Talk FB group page and reading a broader range of posts.
The other day I realised how honoured I feel about knowing some of these wonderful people. Andrej posted photos of himself and students at the AFC, I wished I’d been there. Lynn posted photos from her retreat in Cornwall, I wished I’d been there too. Kavya, Tim, David, Mark, Maureen, Val, Adam, Len, Neil, Irene, Maire, Darren, Simone, and so many other people I’ve been honoured to talk with.
I’m not putting them on pedestals. I’m just recognising their passion for this lifestyle working with the spirit world. I feel honoured that for the few hours it took, they spent time with me and a microphone and opened their hearts as if I was a close friend.
It demonstrates one of the most powerful ingredients of social platforms. Through their posts since I got to know them for their interviews, I can stay somewhat connected with them and their followers. Imagine if there was no Facebook. I’ve only spoken personally to one or two of those I listed, since the interview. Without Facebook, how would we all stay so easily ‘in the loop’? Frightening thought, don’t you think?

Good evening again. You were drawn to this connection through your own enthusiastic desires this evening. Your mind knew you wanted to connect and that is wonderful for both of us.
I want to address the issues you’ve been experiencing again and perhaps some insights to help you through. You would do well to make sure to remember that because it contains the solution in the words.
Dark thoughts need the light of the Divine to banish them from the shadows. They cannot exist in the light, in the same way you cannot be depressed and laugh with intent.
Your sensitivity has always made you vulnerable to those changes of thought. We’ve mentioned before though how quickly you usually change your emotional state to a positive one.
You’ve chosen the written word as your tool for connectivity with us. This is wonderful, for it means you’re writing after you’ve listened to us. Few people really use their time to hear the voice of spirit.
Of course, I also know that you share your written works with an audience. For that reason, I don’t refer to the subject of your darker thoughts. You know what they are, as do I. Some of those dark thoughts are the result of your expectations from your readers. Their silence often hurts you. But it should not be of concern to you how others react as they do. The conversations are between us and you have chosen to share them with others. Of course, we approve of you doing so because of the opportunities it offers us as well to share our bigger messages.
Tonight you received a pleasant surprise when one of your readers send you a rather large donation for your work. This should show you how your work is being appreciated by the reader. She values your work enough to gift you for it. That, I know, has renewed your faith in what you’re doing.
We were blessed by the words you wrote regarding how much you have learnt from us since doing this writing. It is so good that you recognise the lessons we’ve shared. You must surely appreciate how strong our relationship has grown through this work. You have developed a useful portal for our communication with you through your spirit.
In those few moments between that previous sentence and this one, you tried so hard to visualise me as a person. I’m sorry I did not help you with that. I believe it would be too much of a distraction for you now. What I look like and who I am would only distract you from the power of the communication. I do not blame you for trying though! I probably would if I were where you are.
You were reminded of that film with Whoopy Goldberg called ‘Jumping Jack Flash’, where the two never met until the time was right. We’re the same. When the time is right, you’ll get more visions.
Thank you for joining me on this occasion. I leave you now in peace.

When this session was originally published, the awareness scale graphic suggested 7 out of 10. I have downgraded that not to around 5.
In my original afterthoughts I said the following:
Just in those opening sentences, one might assume that my state of mind is not in the correct place. The truth is, very few of us have a constant flow of positivity filling our minds every woken minute. The dark thoughts that the spirit are referring to here are regarding this work, sharing it and the response it receives, or lack of to be more precise!
Sensitive people are easily knocked off their mental balance both positively and negatively. I am no different! The speaker in spirit does make a good point in this wonderful quote:
Interesting words, and a somewhat different interpretation of the inspired words than I got from reading them for this later edition.
Originally, I also extracted this quote from the words:
“We refer to some of the negative thoughts as a shade of dark. Dark thoughts. Do you know why? Because they are absent of the light of the Divine essence.”
I stand by that as being words worth noting. The phrase, ‘light’ does mean so much to us in this religion and it is clear to understand that this is more than just a light on and off, light and dark. There are degrees of light as most of us experience in our spiritual journeys.
In concluding, I think this session has stood the passing of time quite well.
Your feedback is always welcome. Leave your comments below.
I really appreciate this post on a very personal level. The dark thoughts really resonated with me, and like yourself I rarely give into them.
There are times in our personal lives when we feel overwhelmed by life events.
The dark thoughts are indeed banished by the light , and when in doubt I pray.
I am reminded that as humans we don't truly appreciate the power of prayer by my guides.
Praying has become very important to my daily life. Using my own words not ones from a book is much more liberating.
