Loving Wise Ones speaking through Ruth Shilling, in Narragansett, RI – Channeling #210-5May2018
Summary of ALL POSTS from May 5, 2018
- There are certain things that are being impressed, and then there is the interpretation of those which is happening with the mind.
- When we get thoughts questioning our life path: “I have something to contribute, and someone, somewhere, somehow wanted me to become more of who I can be. And they put this idea in my mind about, ‘What is my purpose here?’ That’s how I interpreted it. Probably, however, it was just a little tap to tell me, ‘You’re ready to move on to the fifth grade.’ ” And you only get to do that after fourth grade, so it’s not like anything went wrong. But there is more, and if you choose, that more can be your life, be your heart, be your mind, and be the very presence of yourself as you walk into the grocery store.
Life Path & How Our Minds Handle Information We Are Not Ready For Yet
Someone asked if they had a past life in a particular place.
A: We like this question, even though it is a personal one, as it is a good example of the questions that come into a person’s mind. We would like to address this in the hopes that it will be a teaching for all of you in the way we answer it.
This one asked about whether she had a past life in a particular location. Why do you suppose that question came into her mind? Just take a moment within yourself and ask yourself, “Why would a person have a question like that?” This is important. “Why would a person have such a question come into their mind?”
As was spoken earlier in the evening, about how to receive information, one of the ways that we receive information is it comes in, but our mind isn’t ready to just say, “Oh, oh, thank you, yes.” So the mind will say, “Hmmm, I wonder if…”
That idea of, “Hmmm, I wonder if,” is usually an indication that a message has been sent, and this is just the mind’s way of interpreting it. Is this making sense to all of you? (Yes)
We will bring forth an example. This is from Ruth’s recent past. A woman said she wanted to know something about her guides. Ruth became aware of a Native American grandmother who was there beside her, and the grandmother began to give Ruth’s images that she in turn relayed to the woman. At the end of the reading, the woman was just overjoyed, and she said, “For a month I have been wishing I had a Native American grandmother guide.”
Ruth had the pleasant opportunity to say, “She’s been trying to get through to you for a month!” (laughter)
You see, just in a similar way to the question that we just had, rather than just saying, “I can feel it. I feel a Native American grandmother guide here.” Her mind wasn’t ready to believe, so instead, it came as a desire, “Wouldn’t it be nice if…”
We feel these are very important teaching points for all of you because you can begin to notice these thoughts in your own mind, and begin to question what’s actually behind these thoughts.
(To the woman) So yes, you became aware that you had this other lifetime and then you wondered, am I making this up or is it true? That was the mind’s way of not being ready to fully own it and know that that’s true.
Likewise, with this woman, she had never thought of a Native American grandmother guide before, why was she suddenly feeling she wanted this so badly? Because that one had come, and it was time for them to have their relationship.
So if you begin to think about your own ideas and thoughts and desires, doesn’t this put it into a slightly different context for you? There probably are many things like this in your own life. As you go back to revisit those things, you may see that the mind kind of interceded and changed it a bit, and then that changed thing is what you perceived.
This isn’t to fault that at all. It’s just to say that the mind has its little boxes, and it wants to fit things into those boxes. If it is something where someone has not had vivid memories of past lives – that they know about them – it’s going to go into the questioning box. Things like that.
We would like to thread this idea into something else which may have also occurred to you all, where you have the desire to know what your life path is. “What should I really be doing here?” Have you thought of this? (Yes)
With what we just spoke of, when do those thoughts come into your mind? At different points in your life they have come in. They are not necessarily there every day. Haven’t they come at certain junctures in your life? Maybe as a response to a situation… it comes more into your mind at certain times, yes?
So with what we just spoke about, with how there are certain things that are being impressed, and then there is the interpretation of those which is happening with the mind, what do you suppose is actually happening when you begin to have this strong desire to somehow know, “What am I supposed to be doing here?” Put it into your own words. What do you suppose is actually happening, if you could thread it back a little bit? What do you think is actually happening when you have those thoughts?
Someone responds: You are already starting to get some guidance.
We have a star pupil here! (Laughter) When these thoughts come into the mind, it’s usually at a time when there is a bit of a tugging, a little bit of a re-orienting that needs to happen. As though you are sailing your boat and the wind has shifted a bit, and that means you need to shift if you are going to get the full power of the wind.
At these times, if these thoughts come into the mind, what will often happen is that then the mind will try to figure it out. And the mind will sooner or later say, “How do I know?” So there can then be this frustration that comes up.
We would suggest a different way to work with it. When these thoughts come up, it means that there is some help, direction, whatever, that is actually eliciting that thought to start with. To begin by saying, “Ah-ha! I’m having a thought about, what should I be doing with my life. That must mean someone is jerking my chain. So I want to be open to that point of view of whoever it might be – whether it’s my higher self, my own soul, or some other helpful friend.”
Rather than seeing it as, “Maybe I have not done the right things in my life up until now, maybe I’ve just screwed it up and made a mistake, all these kinds of thoughts…”
Rather, it’s like, “Oh. The wind has shifted, and now I am being invited – sort of like a carrot, being given a little sweet – pulling me into a greater expression of myself because I am not the one who lived ten years ago. I am not the one who lived five years ago. I am the one I am now, and now I’m getting the tap that there are greater things that I can do, greater than I could have envisioned five years ago or ten years ago.
Life is always new. Like the river – I can never step into the same river twice – life is always new. And I have something to contribute, and someone, somewhere, somehow wanted me to become more of who I can be. And they put this idea in my mind about, ‘What is my purpose here?’ That’s how I interpreted it. Probably, however, it was just a little tap to tell me, ‘You’re ready to move on to the fifth grade.’ ”
And you only get to do that after fourth grade, so it’s not like anything went wrong. But there is more, and if you choose, that more can be your life, be your heart, be your mind, and be the very presence of yourself as you walk into the grocery store.
And with that, it has been a great pleasure to spend this time with you all.
