I have always been attuned to my spirituality, even without knowing that I was. While growing up in Jamaica, (a very spiritual place I might add), I knew that I was no ordinary human being. I felt things that people did not feel and even as a child I did not feel like a child. I knew that I did not walk alone and I was always very afraid of what ever I thought was around me. In Jamaica, the flooring in my bed room, under my bed had some board missing, probably two or three from the parquet floor, and directly beneath the house was a cellar, cats would enter my bedroom at nights from the missing floor boards and I would wake up at nights to see stray cats sitting on my bed staring at me with their brilliant eyes reflecting the moonlight, I would scream and in would run my parents. This happened so much that, my parents would pay no more attention to me at nights when they heard me screaming. They told me that instead of waking them up I should shew away the cats and they would run, But these cats never did, and as a child I would cry, because I was afraid of these cats!!..lol…to this day I do not like cats, because of that. I would later find out during my spiritual journey why these cats came about.. I will tell you guys some of the reason on another post.
Once when I was very young, I was on the veranda of my house playing by myself as usual, I could hear my mother and her friends talking in the kitchen from the side of the house around the back. I, foolishly tried to balance on the veranda’s ledge, unfortunately I could not come back onto to the veranda and I knew that if I let go, I would fall to the ground neck first and who knows what would have happened. I called my mother and father, while holding on to the ledge, what seemed like hours passed before my father came to rescue me. My parents later told me that because I called them so much for the simplest of things, they had heard me but they decided to ignore me, believing that I was crying WOLF!
What was interesting though was while I was hanging on for dear life There was a woman sitting on the ledge with me holding onto my dress and humming a lullaby to me, I saw her out of my peripheral view. She communicated to me to not move and she told me that I would be alright. I never saw her face just her side view, but I remember her up to this day. I never told anyone about the woman and how she helped me that day, because I thought that no one would believe me.
I realized years later that she was one of my guides, and she is still with me. Waking up to your spirituality does not mean that you are a psychic, or obeah worker. It means that you have become or are becoming AWARE!. Aware of what? Aware that there is more, way more to life than we know it , more to our existence, more to death, as a matter of fact, Aware that there IS no death. Aware that your mind is a universe all on its own and through the mind we can achieve great things. Through the mind we can stave off sickness, death, war, and also through the mind we can create them all. Waking up to your spirituality, allows you to SEE, the real world!!! come out of the Matrix, and understand you real path, Waking up will remove doubt and fear, unlock your mind, teach you how to trust the inner you, which is your most powerful deity, your soul consciousness. You will be freed from religion, because no written doctrine is as powerful or knowledgeable as your inner being, or what it knows. We all have a source and if we allow ourselves to tap into that source, we could see the LIGHT!.
As a child I saw the light, but I could not recognize what it was. I did not understand it, so I was afraid. Fear became an oppressor. It was the Devils own self. Fear is a malevolent force, invoked by human beings to oppress us. When I was waking up, I realized that all that I had come to believe about life and spirituality were false, I was fed things that society wanted me to believe, and fall IN with the OTHERS, through the indoctrination of religion, dogmas and doctrines. Then I WOKE up, and began living for the first time, WITHOUT FEAR!!!…
