I am often asked: “Is there a God?”
When I respond “Yes”, I am then asked: “Since you can talk to the dead, have you seen God?”
To which I frequently respond: “Since God is not dead, no.”
However, in my work, I have spent an enormous amount of time communicating with angels, who are in regular communication with, and within the presence of, God. This communication leaves behind a very distinct energy signature that, just like when I’m reading for an individual, can be decoded, at least in part, and observed. Though I don’t think I’m the most dull bulb on the tree – I’m confident that I’m not able to comprehend the full breadth and width of God, in all of It’s applications and dimensions. I am humbled to be cognitive of many aspects of God – yet many I am certain remain out of my periphery, simply because I would not be able to identify, or frankly, comprehend them.
After all, I’m just one lone Clairvoyant, folks.
Though we’d all love to be treated to that dramatic Cecil B. DeMille moment of seeing, with our own eyes, a fearless God clad in golden robes barreling through the clouds on a chariot made of lightning, His Abraham-like flowing hair silver in the moonlight – it appears that “feeling God” is a much more common occurrence for Humankind. I would never presume to be so arrogant as to claim that I was speaking directly for God with any of this blog posting – I’m not a self-proclaimed prophet or Jim Jones, mind you, and no one will be required to drink any kool-aid after reading this article. Yet because of my work, especially with Spiritual Physics – something that God wrote the book on — I do seem to have a comfortable working grasp on the “face of God” in a way that I am able to understand. I say “able to understand” because though God’s character is the same, It will represent itself differently to each one of us, depending on not only where we are at in our lives, but how we’ve been raised.
I do know, through my work with angels, that God meets us where we are at — not the other way around.
It is ego that demands that others meet us where we are at. God has no ego at all. An ego is a reflection of ourselves that is dependent upon on the actions, words, or deeds of others. Since God is not dependent on our acknowledgment or understanding of It – then ego has no place in the character of God.
The fact is, one does not require any additional spiritual aptitudes to “see God”, as the entity, or energy that we call God is present all around us, everyday. If you’ve seen the spark of one’s smiling eyes – you’ve seen God. If you’ve been stopped in your tracks by a gorgeous sunset – you’ve seen God. If you’ve ever burst into tears due to being in the presence of someone who has moved your heart to the point of bursting with love – you’ve seen God. If you’ve ever had food that melts in your mouth and causes your eyes to roll back in your head – you’ve experienced God. If you’ve ever smelled a fresh rose while it was still growing from the stalk, or inhaled high mountain pine trees – you’ve experienced God. If you’ve ever forgiven someone who has greatly wronged you – you have become the heart of God.
God is often difficult to comprehend for us, as It is a singluar consciousness yet an all-encompassing force, the fabric of all things, with a distinct personality that differs in delivery for every person alive. Imagine if you had the ability to instantaneously know exactly how to represent yourself to every human being walking the earth. Now, imagine that such a phenomenal ability makes absolutely no difference to you – because you are already one with every single person walking the earth. In fact, you’d consider this “ability” as simply “your existence”.
God is hardly impressed by It’s own design.
I say “It” not out of disrespect to an amazing Parent Creator, of whom I’m only able to glean tiny pieces based upon my own understanding of the Universe, but out of acknowledgement that wow – this entity, this consciousness, is WAY past having a gender. God was “the Father” when the administrators of God’s identity were Patriarchal. God was “the Mother” when the administrators of God’s identity related the ability to give birth to giving life, ergo – Matriarchal. God was “Great Spirit” when the administrators of God’s identity had no social attachment to whether or not one gender was greater than another in the balance of life. Again, we personify God to give ourselves a reference point for deference when referring to God.
God doesn’t need to “Godify” us to understand us – because we are already part of what God is. We just don’t realize it, and God does. The fact is – in my years of experience in identifying energy signatures (which is the same aptitude I use when working with law enforcement on cold cases) there is no other energy signature that I have encountered, in this Universe or any other parallel to ours, that shares the exact same attributes as God.
God is a one-off.
Though many items, including people, in this third dimension (as well as in many other dimensions) have “God’s fingerprint” all over their design, including angels – that is a far cry from finding another “god” out there. Just because I can identify the energy behind a missing person’s handprint doesn’t mean they are there in the room.
We are not separate from our Parent Creator. We never have been. It is a crafted lie of the Darkness that has attempted to convince us over the eons that we must stand and shout to the sky toward a distant and punishing entity who remains deaf to our cries for help, disgusted by our iniquities, and numb to our pain. That is not God. Again, that is humanity’s personification of an abusive parent god. Our Parent Creator simply would never experience that type of response to Humankind – but another human certainly would. Especially one who is attempting to control humanity through fear by creating the mythology of an all-powerful vengeful entity who will toss us on the “disqualified” pile for – yep, you guessed it – being human. GOD isn’t that petty, but PEOPLE certainly are.
The wrong doctrine that “we are not worthy to participate with our Parent Creator due to our humanity” is, in effect, in direct opposition with Spiritual Physics Golden Rule of Like Attracts Like. Ergo, if God created Humankind, and God is all things, then God would not be repelled by our negative “flaws”, as those flaws are part of God’s design, which is perfect in it’s balance.
God is all about cause and effect. And God has the time to watch the pendulum swing from one side to the other, while balance is restored. To God, the “act of achieving balance naturally” appears to be the most important aspect of holding all of this mayhem together. Since God doesn’t have an expiration date, God can “wait”, or more accurately, continue to exist in the moment indefinitely while all of this “balancing” is occurring.
What may seem like great injustice to we who are hanging out down here on this spinning rock called Earth for a mere blink of 80 years or so – about half the lifespan of a sea turtle and about one tenth the lifespan of a Saguaro cactus — that same injustice is simply part of God’s plan to create justice, which may, in its perfection, take 300 years to complete. In this “leveling process”, it’s been my observation that many, many more lessons and progressive movements forward are made by Humanity than when the pendulum is either at the far side of chaos, or rocked back into the deep end of contentment.
Learning patience in how the balance is restored is part of the lesson that humanity is experiencing right now, in this extreme transition known as the “2012 phenomenon”.
The human preoccupation with whether or not God is real has always fascinated me. God, just like air, is a moving, visceral thing that though breathed in everyday, remains widely unnoticed until something erupts into it, giving it color. For instance, every picnicking couple lives a clear day. The very thing that this couple is celebrating, the clear day, is nothing but endless, unencumbered air. Yet oddly, it is not the clear air that receives the praise for the glorious weather, but the visible sun. If the clear day is interrupted by a forest fire, whose smoke then hangs in the air, our attention is suddenly drawn to the fact that my goodness – the sky is huge, as it’s filled up with high-plooming clouds.
Humanity needs a reference for which to experience God, because God in God’s native format is all things at once. Understanding this concept is a little bit out of humanity’s wheelhouse, and the concept of God then becomes too vast, and too vague, for each one of us to get our brains around. We are spiritual beings hyper-connected to one another through the Spiritual Fabric that weaves together all living matter, yet we are having a singular physical experience, so the “we are all one but separate” concept is both real – and confusing – to Human Beings. As such, our learned realm of understanding is developed by what we can see, hear, taste, touch – what we can experience on a physical level, because plain and simple – it’s easier. Since God is both physical and spiritual, we tend to associate God with physical markers that evoke an emotional response – a crucifix, ocean waves crashing, doves flying overhead, or a moonrise.
Human Beings are “signs and wonders” junkies, feeling our way through life no different than a catfish dragging it’s whiskers across the murky muddy bottom of the Swanee River. Like the catfish, we tend to only “see” what we can “feel” right in front of us, and the rest is out of our realm of eyesight because our environment is clouded with the murk of Darkness. And make no mistake — Darkness knows how to snare us in this environment.
Just like “catfish Noodlers”, the fearless fellas who submerge themselves in the pitch black waters of the Louisiana swamps and stick their hands in the grinding mouths of giant catfish in order snatch them up out of the water by the gills – Darkness has no problem reaching straight into our spirit and trying to grab us, to drag us further down into the mud. Like the Noodler, Darkness expects to get it’s hand bit a little. It’s part of the job. But like the Noodler, Darkness decides it’s well worth it if the prey snagged will feed a village.
One way that Darkness keeps us pinned by the gills is to whisper in the ears of the fearful that there is only ONE way in which God is represented. This is a very touchy subject for many, especially those raised in an incredibly religious household. There is no difference in the vitriol of the Zealous Evangelical Christian, the Zealous Radical Muslim, and the Zealous Atheist, though all would be highly offended by that statement. (We do tend to loathe in others the tendencies we often loathe in ourselves.)
Atheists are interesting, in that to me, they have much more in common with the Religious Right, which also subscribes to a black and white “it is or it isn’t” belief system — like “all science is Voo Doo” and “dinosaurs are a government conspiracy”. The Atheistic act of claiming that there cannot exist in the Universe any intelligent energetic force greater than ourselves that would affect us is, to me, much too limiting, when we, as a species, aren’t even sure what’s exactly at the bottom of our oceans — let alone different dimensions. It is one thing to claim that one does not subscribe to any organized religion, or any preconceived notion of a god made in our own image. But to simply claim there IS NO GOD, especially when science is thrown under the bus as the “underwriter” of that opinion – contradicts itself wildly, as Quantum Physics breaks matter down to an energetic level that often can’t be explained. Plus, often times the zealous Atheist argument tends to read as someone with a personal ax to grind, as those people have often been harmed emotionally in the name of God, by some dictatorial jerk who claims to work for God. Let’s face it — if I was punched in the face repeated times by someone wearing a New York Yankees shirt, who claimed to be a hardcore fan – I’d probably hate the Yankees, too.
But let’s not all throw the baby out with the bathwater. Grey area, people – grey area. Religion and God have nothing to do with one another, except Religion decided to franchise the concept of God, without paying any licensing fees. Nice.
Conversely, to go the opposite route, the route of Religious Zealots who attempt to own a singular denominational copyright on the identity of God, is — simply put – ludicrous. It’s even more ludicrous to suggest that the fullness of the identity of this one-off entity known as God could be captured in only ONE book told through the experience of only ONE culture in only ONE part of the world. I say this from the perspective of someone who, even in my limited understanding of God, can identify countless energy strains and signatures within God that are so vastly different, and so enormous, that one book simply couldn’t hold it all.
Sheesh, even J.K. Rowling wrote more than one Harry Potter book.
Again, seeing as that we Human Beings are “signs and wonders” junkies, having a religious book to outline the partial character of God, at least in respect to Humanity, through the re-telling of tribal histories, allegories, fables and parables, seems to be a winning combination from religion to religion. From the Christian Bible to Islam’s Quran to the Book of Mormon to the Jewish Tanakh to the Hindu Bhagavad Gita and even to The Tao, God is represented and re-represented over and over again, in different ways, to appeal to the different cultures who wrote the text. Yet miraculously, though all of these texts were penned by Human Beings – God is always saying the same thing, imparting the same lessons, from culture to culture. If there was ever any confusion about whether or not God somehow had a hand in writing any of these religious texts – therein lies a compelling argument: The exact same concepts being represented over and over again, yet in different languages, different histories, different geographical areas, different cultures – and even different epochs.
Darkness wishes Humanity to fight over which version of God is “correct”. As long as we are fighting, this astounding fact that so many versions of “God’s Word” state the exact same lessons, even though so many cultural, moral, and historical timeline differences exist between the many religious texts — goes unnoticed. However, this rather uncanny fact should be enough to stop Humanity in our tracks to evaluate this most ponderous set of written “evidence”, enough to put down our verbal and literal weapons to agree: Maybe this entity is real?
And maybe It understands us better than we understand ourselves?
And maybe in It’s infinite wisdom, It realized that It needed more than one visual aid, and written modality, to unify the whole world?
And maybe, the minute we, as a species, truly accept that one nation or the other doesn’t need to own the proprietary rights to God – we would be able to feel God, in the connectedness we’d feel for one another?
And maybe, in fully relaxing into this connectedness – we’d truly see God, for the first time?
Now there’s a thought.
However, to give up the power that any one person, or any one nation, is able to wield over a population by dividing the masses on “God’s word”, means that the masses must no longer respond to the hollow misrepresentations of God. And as long as there are people who operate under a limitation consciousness, there will be room for Darkness to exploit this blatant Entity Identity Theft on behalf of religions everywhere.
Yes, there are Spiritual Physics to dealing with Light and Dark. When I’ve encountered demonic entities, they don’t turn tail and run when I state “In the name of Buddha.” They do, however, scatter like angry cockroaches under a resentful spotlight if I evoke the name of Jesus. This could be that I was raised in a Christian household, and as such, put great weight and energy into my belief of the power of Jesus over Darkness. However, just as God has an identifiable energy that is all It’s own – I’ve noticed that so does Jesus – and it’s a pretty BIG energy. Not to say that there aren’t other very big energies out there, but Jesus is my “go to” for many situations in life. So as much as I’d like to ruminate on the thought that my sheer BELIEF is enough to chase away the demons – I think the fact that I am towing the big Jesus energy behind me is probably what is spooking the roaches under the sink. That, and they are particularly uncomfortable with Michael the Arc Angel, and he appears to pop in during demonic clean-ups.
However, I have used Buddhist centering techniques to keep myself calm in the face of demonic entities, and it greatly reduces the effect that the demonic entities have had on me, or the environment. Calm is calm, and chaos is chaos, and one does not beget the other. But this isn’t a dissertation on which version of God is the most powerful. It’s an observation on how the God energy is understood by Humanity, and translated into a spiritual defense against Darkness.
All guns can kill, but not all are fired the same way.
God is real. However, God is not the “white haired guy on a cloud” that we have fashioned after King James. Jesus also didn’t have blonde hair and blue eyes. But the good news is that according to what I’ve witnessed in working with these angels, God could care less how we paint God, because every version of God that we can create to mirror ourselves – has already been accounted for by God, because for God – we ARE part of the body of God, ergo, all of our versions of God are part of God as well. Give free will and infinite creativity to Humanity and watch Humanity create a thousand versions of God. According to God’s law of Like Attracts Like, that’s all cause and effect – and the system is working perfectly.
C.S. Lewis captured this ideal so eloquently in one of his Narnia books, where the main characters were in Narnia (heaven adjacent) and saw one of the followers of Tash (Satan adjacent) wandering around the green paradise pastures. One of the characters became incredibly upset that this Tash-worshipper wasn’t doomed to the underworld, but was instead relaxing in Narnia, and mentioned it to the Great Aslan (Jesus adjacent). Aslan’s response was to calm down the zealous and upset character by mentioning that the man in question was welcome to be in Narnia because he had been worshipping ASLAN the whole time, even though the man called him TASH. The implication was that God knows our heart, and what we “call” God is inconsequential.
When you feel love, you feel God. When you feel compassion for someone you’ve never met, you are feeling God. When you create something from scratch, whether it’s a great pie or a song or an oil-painted masterpiece, you are manifesting a miracle out of thin air – loaves and fishes – and you are one with God’s process of creation. Our ability to create anything or any situation, Good or Bad, is part of our spiritual genetics. We are miracle makers on two legs, yet we believe ourselves to be victims of a tyrannical system, because we have bought into the belief system of personal limitation that has been presented as an option to Humanity, by Darkness. You don’t need to fear that God doesn’t hear you, because it is impossible for God not to hear you, as we are all part of the body of God, and part of each other. Sometimes, it may take a moment for God to get to your petitions – your prayers – not because God is “too busy”, but because each prayer has attached to it an infinite number of cause-and-effect issues that, when the prayer is answered, will then affect the three-dimensional environment in which the prayer is manifested, creating a “butterfly effect” that must immediately be addressed, somewhere else, in a beautiful way. God never breaks God’s own rules, and the biggest rule is: There must be balance in all things.
So be patient, and realize that God is not some mystical thing that is out of your reach. God is love, and we are all part of the God, and therefore, we are love, which is why we panic and hurt so badly when we feel as though love is not within our grasp. It is as though we are losing our very essence, and in many ways, that is true. We cannot be without love, for ourselves and for others.
God is within you, and outside of you, and in your kind actions, and in the beauty of the sunset and sunrise, and in the delight of a hot chocolate cake. God is joy and free will and creation and tempered wisdom in choice making. God is waves of peace during times of chaos and that “knowingness” that it’s all going to be okay, even though the roof is falling in. We may not always experience God, or feel God with us, but that’s not because God doesn’t care about us, or has abandoned us. We are the body of God, and to abandon us would be like sawing off our own right arm and leaving it on the floor in the middle of the room. When we feel that God is not with us, it’s because our focus is on our pain at the time, on the immediacy of whatever is wounding us, rather than relaxing into “the whole” around us, to re-connect with that ever-present energetic current that flows around all things — often knowns as “The Holy Spirit” — the same current that, if we pay attention, directs us around obstacles. This myopic response to discomfort is part of what makes us Human.
God doesn’t become offended when we are too caught up in any number of dramas in our life to take the time to experience the peace that we have within us – to be offended would infer that God feels as though It is not the focus of our lives, and in fact, God can’t NOT be the focus, because God is all things. As such, God hangs back while we explore how deeply we hurt, though I’m certain God would rather us be not hurting – not because God fears for our hearts, but because the act of remaining in pain doesn’t serve us after awhile. Again, we are out of balance, and God seeks balance for us, in all things. It is in this balance that we are free to experience God, and God loves nothing more than to commune with us at our own pace. What parent isn’t the biggest fan of their own children?
If anyone tells you that God will not love you, for one reason or another – they are lying to you out of their own self-loathing.
If anyone tells you that you are not good enough to be in God’s presence – they are lying to you, out of their own feelings of being lesser than another.
If anyone tells you that there is only ONE true religion – they are lying to you, out of their own fear that they would make a wrong choice.
If anyone tells you that there is no God – they are lying to you, out of their pain of having been abandoned by people who they have trusted.
If anyone claims to oppress or kill for God – they are lying to themselves.
People lie to themselves all the time about God, because to accept the idea of what God truly is – not the checklist-heavy petty middle-management figure in the Bible, but what God TRULY is — means to accept that they, too – are worthy of love. And regrettably, most people have been programmed that they are a terrible person, and need to remain a terrible person, in order to be a humble servant of God. However, God does not want us to serve “It”, as much as God sees the wisdom in us serving the system of goodness, respect, dignity and kindness to one another, and since God is the system, it is probably easier for people to simply boil that all down to “serving God.” And, to “serve God” means to serve the greatest good, as God IS the greatest good, period. When we take selfish action against another, it creates an imbalance in the flow, and that imbalance must be righted with an apology, or with making restitution somehow. As Humans, we tend to have knee-jerk reactions based on fear that require a little clean-up in aisle nine, and it’s in our best interest to simply accept this fact, to be patient with one another through these times, and heck – maybe even offer to bring our own mop and bucket to the clean-up, even if we didn’t make the mess.
The bottom line is that no matter how much a part of God we are – we are not God. We are able to snap away glimpses of the enormous character and complexity of God, and we are able to smell and touch tiny parts of God on occasion, like when cuddling a newborn baby whose spirit has yet to be defined and molded by this limitation-heavy third dimension. We are not responsible to know it all, or to be perfect, yet we are responsible to be accountable for our own actions. Nowhere in any religious text does it state that each one of us can act like an unruly douche bag to one another, with no repercussion – simply because God loves us. Sure, God will love us, no matter how we choose to behave. Again, God doesn’t possess the “petty” gene. But, we can’t say the same for the neighbor that we’ve dramatically wronged.
The act of forgiveness is not about granting absolution to another who has wronged us. Frankly, “absolution” is completely out of our jurisdiction, as Human Beings. That’s an issue of spiritual alchemy that happens between an individual and God Itself. The act of forgiveness is all about freeing ourselves from the energy that has been thrust upon us, as not to become the energy that has been thrust upon us. In other words, if I am mugged, and I do not process and release the feelings of fear and anger that I now feel – that not only have been drummed up in me, but have been transferred to me from the mugger, who felt fearful and angry enough to mug me – then I am, in essence, no longer who I am, but a walking shrine to the energetic state of the crime. Forgiving the mugger does not mean forgetting it happened. We must always remember what happens, as our journey through that difficulty later defines who we choose to be in this world. Forgiving means “letting go of” our participation with the identity of the energy left behind in our spirit, so that we do not “become” the incident in our everyday life, but instead learn about who we really are in our transcendence of the pain. Bad things happen to good people. That’s being part of the chaotic third dimension. But out of bad events, good people become even better. And that’s another sign that God is with us, even in our darkest moments.
God does not exist simply to be our conscience, the moral judge and jury. In fact, the act of Humanity turning God in to the Universal Police is a little… juvenile, and really, we’d be better suited simply to hire a security company to tell us when we’ve stepped over the line. God is so much greater than we allow It to be in our everyday lives – It’s the greatest artist I know, and the most well-thought-out scientist, and the most fascinating decorator, the best doctor, the most compassionate neighbor, and one heck of a comic. God is all things Unity. We are not on the end of God’s “wrath”. God isn’t spiteful enough to have wrath – “spite” is human — though Darkness, through the law of cause and effect, has a LOT of smack-down coming for it, when the pendulum finally swings away from chaos. God even has the courtesy, in God’s cause-and-effect consciousness, to warn Darkness that the consequence of it’s actions will result in it’s eventual demise. But, in its design – Darkness ignored the obvious and continues to create chaos. And Darkness is simply fulfilling its function in creating balance. Sometime I’ll blog about my experience in tracking down how “Darkness” came to be born.
But not today.
Here is to our Parent Creator God – the only thing in the Universe more misunderstood than Johnny Depp. May God – the actual all-encompassing entity known as God, not one of the many gods we’ve created in our own Human image to use as a bludgeoning tool – may God truly bless you today. In fact, you can’t help but be blessed, as part of the body of God. We are all part of the fabric of God. Just make sure to allow the blessing. Since we do have free will, and we are allowed to deny any good feelings we wish. We are, indeed, allowed to be our own wet blanket if we so choose. However, don’t let the off-track messengers — those scary TV evangelists, or hateful politicians — dupe you into not participating with your spiritual heritage of love. Think of God more like Johnny Depp — I bet if Captain Jack Sparrow were delivering you good tidings –you’d probably smile, and say thank you.
So here is to our Parent Creator God – and Pirates. Two entities both blamed for countless deaths, yet both represented onscreen by Charlton Heston.
And people say God doesn’t have a sense of humor.
