We all possess an inner knowing that this life is not all there is or ever was. Furthermore, it is true that we all possess a sixth sense. It is sometimes called 'intuition' or inner guidance and is a higher power talking to us and guiding us through the storms of our lives.
Some of us deny it, don’t believe it, or just do not wish to go there. Others suspect it, but don’t understand it and/or don’t really care. Then there are those who know it, fear it and choose not to develop it. This is perfectly fine, because we were all given free will, it is our choice. We are allowed to develop our 'spiritual' muscles at the pace we choose. Therefore, the method is not right or wrong.
Still others are intrigued by it, embrace it and have a hunger to know more. In other words, we are all at different levels of spiritual development as part of the eternal soul’s journey. It has been said by many masters that when we are ready, the opportunity and/or teacher will present itself. Perhaps you have happened upon this website, but rest assured, it was no accident or coincidence.
Since I began studying extensively on these subjects many years ago, I have found many like-minded people who have been afraid to tell others of their views and what resonates with them.
Eventually, we come to realize, however, that if we are going to make a difference in this world, we need to put into practice by example, what we have learned and feel we now know in our core belief system. It is a bit like coming out of the closet spiritually. There will always be those who will wholeheartedly disagree and those who will challenge your beliefs to one degree or another. Of course, that is their right, but what they don't have is the right to tell you what or how to believe as with organized religions. As with everything, there are always many paths to the same destination. Everyone must find their own truth on this path called life.
Key to this is keeping an open mind. New information is always coming in and may well disprove or replace what we currently knew. There is nothing wrong with considering the possibilities and even embracing what just makes sense to us no matter what someone else says. Remember, we were given free will to make up our own mind.
I can tell you now that you will not agree on every concept in my books or in the suggested reads below, nor should you. It is best to take what rings true to you and leave the rest. What works for some, may not, or will not work for another. One thing is certain; once you know what you know, you can never go back, nor will you want to.
In keeping with the theme of my first book, Heritage Quest, Uncovering Your Roots, the second in the series, now in progress is titled, The Genealogy of Past Lives, Taking it to the Next Level.
For those who have a hunger to learn more or study further, some great places to
begin exploring the many aspects of the metaphysical (literally meaning 'beyond the physical') are with these recommended reads. All are classed as non-fiction. There
are thousands of others.
Besides borrowing from the library, you may want to purchase some for your own personal library. There are many good book stores where you can purchase both new and used, as well as online or in an e-book format. One of my own personal favorites
is Amazon (with Prime membership, there is no shipping.) You will find many of these books to be very powerful and have the capacity to change your life forever.
At some point and you will know when, if you have the opportunity and the means,
you will be ready to explore going from just reading, to attending conferences and workshops offered by your favorite authors. Once you have become aware of your own personal truths, you will want to act on them by living them. This is a more effective way of touching the lives of others then by simply telling them what you believe to be true for you. It is always best to lead by example. While there are
many authors with deep insight on these subjects, to get started, here are a few
that I can personally highly recommend - any and all of their work:
In addition, here are some other preferred titles:
One night I dreamed a dream. As I was walking along the beach with my Lord
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two
sets of footprints in the sand, One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints
in the sand. I noticed that at many times along the path of my life, especially at
the very lowest and saddest times, there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it. "Lord, you said once I decided
to follow you, You'd walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the saddest
and most troublesome times of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."
He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you Never, ever,
during your trials and testings.
WHEN YOU SAW ONLY ONE STEP OF FOOTPRINTS, IT WAS THEN THAT I CARRIED YOU."
