To Live!

As many would know, spirit spoke to me about 5 years ago and said that I would die when I was 60. And as everything else that spirit spoke to me about has come true, I had no doubt that it would happen.
This left me to face some very big and entrenched fears in my life, and in doing so, thankfully, I have climbed and removed many walls in my life, understood the reasons behind those fears so that I am now free from their tyranny.
Don’t get me wrong, they have a very important part in our lives. In living them and enduring their pain, it shows us compassion and the ability to love ourselves as nothing else can.
So I find myself in a beautiful place in my life…so spirit decided it was time to look a little deeper…much deeper.
Spirit came to me and said (and I wasn’t even thinking of death or anything even associated with it)…’Who said you would not live again!’ And that was it.
It was so out of nowhere that I wondered if I hadn’t ‘seen’ something after all that death had so far shown me.

1. Would I literally die, but come alive again. Like those stories you hear about people dying on the operating table but ‘coming back’?
2. Would I truthfully ‘live again’ in the spirit world.
3. Or would I ‘live again’ in another lifetime.

I have thought about it for a while and the one thing that it showed me promise for on my journey is…it doesn’t matter. And in realising that I’m comfortable that it no longer ‘holds me back’.
Maybe that was what it was for…to ‘see’ that we will all be alive again…once our walls come down ❀

  1. During my awakening journey I felt the excitement to know that me… little ordinary me can rise above this life of suffering and victimhood… understand how life all works and fully embody my Master and Creator self, the true pure light being AM here and now move forward where no one has been before. I have a feel Mark you are beginning to feel similar times are upon us, but first we have to drop all fear and belief in lack and unworthiness…. I can see us all skipping along, jumping up in joy and embracing our graduation. much love mark x Barbara x

    • Thank you Barbara, it is good to see your journey expressed for all to see also. It is an amazing thing to feel and understand that this ordinary life really does have a greater understanding within it, and be able to step into that change because it can be ‘evidenced’ by each step we take towards it. And we are reaching a time of change for us all, because when we reach a very trying time in our lives, divorce, loss of someone close etc, we are forced to look within and find what has meaning. Well, our outer lives, community, world wide is also going to reach a cathartic state as it goes through the birthing pangs that is being produced by the fear created by those that are running different countries around the world. It is stepping up a gear like may other empires before us…the Egyptians, Romans and Greek empires all eventually collapsed because of the corruption and fear created by their actions…but as each one ‘let go’, it created a better place. We can be the core of what will eventually break through what is to come, and create that nirvana that we all seek. Much love to you also Barbara, and thank you for sharing that kind heart young lady, may it be a beacon for us all πŸ˜€ ❀

  2. Wow, Mark! Isn’t this journey amazing? I think that’s what Spirit was saying, “Once those walls come down, we will all be alive again.” It’s those walls that keep us from truly living. I know this has been very true for me. It’s comforting and peaceful once you discover the truths in our lives. So freeing, so wonderful.

    • Oh don’t worry Kristine, in the beginning they would bowl me over as well πŸ˜€ It is only because I can now truly ‘see’ the beauty in our lives down here that I can understand freely. It is like being nervous on your first day at school, but after a while it becomes second nature because you understand what is happening. Fear is only the unknown. And spirit does talk to you, but in the beginning we tend to put it off as coincidences or a fluke. What we need to understand is we are in fact being shown things, very subtle things, and when we learn to listen we can step it up by being more proactive in that listening. Meditation is learning to quiet the mind, let go the ego, and be open to spirit. And in the beginning it can be unusual or difficult or even doubt yourself in what you ‘think’ what the message is and to find meaning in what is being brought forward, but slowly you will understand and ‘see’ what is there. As time goes by my ability has reached a point that I am ‘listening’ most of the time, especially when I can ‘feel’ someone’s energy isn’t in a good place. But that is my gift to ‘feel’ in the healing that I do. Find where your heart loves to do something and listen to what you ‘feel’, you will begin to sense and understand what comes through at those times. And after a while it will become second nature. Just to give you an idea, how easily do you sense there is something wrong with your children. That is exactly what I mean by being able to sense, it is driven by the love that we are open to. The more you remove your fears, the more open you become, and the more you ‘feel’. And another way I do it is in my article at the top of my blog called The Dreaming. And anything that is coming through for me has always been with a great love, a sense of being shown or given something with a very beautiful unconditional love. Happy meditation…or sleep Kristine, your spirit is always there guiding you, and like any ability we just need to practice and tune it in πŸ˜€

  3. Oh, I haven’t had enough coffee to get my brain functioning to add a profound comment. I have never feared death because I believe there is always something more beautiful to experience. However, there are moments in life that signify a death of something…an action, a belief….acceptance of yourself instead of fighting against yourself helps to enjoy the journey. (at least that is what I always look for)

    • And very wisely and beautifully said April. We do go through some hard things, but they are there for a purpose. Gradually showing us a self love and acceptance of us exactly as we are.
      Well said kind lady…maybe I should have come to you for lessons much earlier, would have saved myself a lot of grief πŸ˜€ ❀

        • No my friend, you are exactly where you should be. Because of what you have endured you are a more wiser and loving person. It’s like all that information they cram into you at school, it’s raw and unlived in your early days. It isn’t until life hones it with experience that it becomes more refined and begins to compliment your life. And in that constant good, bad and in between of everything, you build that love that you are. Some days will feel like it never ends, but underneath is a very beautiful person. You glow well April, even I can feel that from here. Take pride in that, you chose a very hard life, and in doing so are becoming exactly what you require in your heart ❀ πŸ˜€

  4. I’ve had deaths, Mark, both literally and metaphorically in my life and with each one my life afterwards becomes new. Getting from the death stage to the new stage is not instantaneous as you well know. Beautiful post and I thank you for sharing it. πŸ’•πŸŒΈπŸ’•

    • My pleasure Amy. It has been an incredible journey to step over the rise of each mountain and see such a grand vista in the discovery of what we have endured to get there.
      But those views each time are so much more refreshing because of that journey, and the realisation that the beauty has been within all along. It just needed us to believe in ourselves, take those fearful steps, and become the change we are seeking.
      Big hugs my friend, may there be more beautiful vista’s within to discover ❀ πŸ˜€

  5. Perhaps the old you is ready to pass on, and the new you fully emerges in this lifetime Michael. Spirit, like dreams speaks in metaphors and images as words are so limited.
    Whichever way it turns out, it is an amazing journey that you are on… and will continue.
    We find true freedom (no matter what the circumstances) when we feel the Oneness of it all and let go of fear.
    I love the last sentence. πŸ’•

      From what I have been blessed with so far, I have no doubt it would be a very beautiful experience my friend.
      Thank you for sharing Val, may that metamorphosis to Oneness be ever wrapped in the love that it is built on ❀

  6. I have a friend who was told she’d die… that was 3 years ago now? She did, her life altered so much, she changed so much, that friends met her months later and said, “You’re a different person.”

    I’m so glad I get blog reminders, because I needed this today as well. I’m going through a mini death of me at the moment. Needed reminding of rebirth. ❀

    • Yes Michelle, those moments take us to the heart of things…literally. It finally allows us to ‘see’ that much of what we hold really has no meaning. Don’t get me wrong, those things are guiding us, but in that realisation of knowing we may no longer be here, we can ‘see’ what really has no meaning and allows us to focus deeper in what does. That love and happiness that is behind all that we do. And more to the point, going beyond those fears that hold our negativity and blocks the self love, that love we have denied ourselves all our lives. Once those fears are understood, it blossoms within like a flower…and as you have said, a rebirth begins, unfolding that truth in our hearts a little further reaching for that unconditional place that awaits us all.
      Thank you for sharing your journey, may that mini death unfold your bloom a little further within ❀ πŸ˜€

  7. This is a wonderful perspective that you have now come to in understanding..
    Life has no end.. Only we view death as the end.. Yet as the butterfly well knows, the transformation from one form to the other ..
    Once we face those fears, it is amazing how those walls fall down..

    I have had the privilege to be at several passings the moment they transcended.. Each one different, but each a beautiful experience.. As the peace was felt as they finally let go and stepped through the door awaiting them

    My thoughts on I am Home.. recently published on my Blog Mark, were the visions of such a transition, from one world to the next.. I am home refers to the Spirit World, which I know is waiting..

    Many thanks Mark for sharing your profound experiences with us..
    Love and Blessings my friend
    Sue πŸ™‚ πŸ’œ

    • As the journey that you share with us Sue, touching those profound moments so others can see the truth in what awaits us. It is always a beautiful thing when we touch and understand those moments, bringing a new perspective and way of being, forever changed because of them. And as you have said, the peace it brings to finally ‘see’ and understand our lives, which brings that transcendence and the ability to truly see the meaning behind it all.
      Love and light to you also kind lady, may your journey always be that awakening ❀ πŸ˜€

    • This journey has been quite profound Paras, with many beauties hidden behind those walls we build. But our purpose is to find that unconditional love and in doing so, become the true spirit we are within.
      Thank you for sharing kind lady, may your journey find that love ❀
