We cannot and must not take each other for granted. In life everybody needs somebody sometime, as the saying goes. When you acknowledge a person you honor their spirit when they are of assistance to you in any way. If you choose to testify about it to others then you are paying it forward by giving another person hope or encouraging them. I do not know how I come across when I express my weaknesses or concerns, I am human after all, and when I created this site I told myself that whatever content I put here would be the truth, at least about myself. I am not responsible for any article which is placed here where the author did not do his or her proper research. What this all means is that we are all here on this blog site because we are of like minds. Here for the stories and what we may learn from them as well as the camaraderie within the commentaries and that is all well. This which Nunu has done makes me feel good within myself, why? It makes me realize that I must continue because there are those out there like Nunu who is benefiting from my hard work daily.
The contents here are not copy and paste, at least most are not, and It takes much of me to sit and type this daily, often times breaking down and crying when somethings are dredged up from the deep bottom of my mind for the purpose of sharing, Often times when these memories come back I stop typing, blinded by tears. I sit and stare at the laptop unable to go on, of this I swear. Thank you Nunu for sharing. Nunu, all my life I have helped people, used my life to help and when the help came and they were satisfied, I saw or heard from them no more until trouble knocked their doors again. It bothered me and I discussed this with the Jamaican Babalawo, he told me that it was my fault, I was too accessible, he said I should have a cut off time where people could not reach me always. I noticed this to be a common theme among most spiritual practitioner, but I couldn’t do it. I did not even try, because how could I not be there for someone, anyone who needed me day or night? I just did not know how to do it so I stayed true to who I am. There are those who would call me and seek help with visions and dreams and of course I would help in all ways and just as I wrote in the post The condemnation of the spiritual worker, I was criticized, vilified and demonized behind my back and it hurt, I cannot tell a lie, it hurt. It hurt so much I wanted to lock myself away from the world, change my number and move away, and on several occasions I did change my number and close myself off but never for long and so I have come to accept my life and my fate. Forgive my rantings, I am a little disappointed in an email I received from someone this week, they thought they were being kind but the message vibrated differently to me, but Nunu your email made me feel better, thanks for sharing.
Hello My Family!
I would like to share an awesome experience that I’ve had with you all. Firstly, let me tell you that throughout my spiritual journey I’ve had dreams and visions; even though I didn’t fully understand the spirit world (still don’t) or know how to interpret what I dreamt, I knew that these experiences were important because they contained messages. This prompted me to keep a dream journal so that I could document and keep track of the things that I’ve experienced. I’ve had this journal since 2008. Since finding this blog I’ve been opened up to a world that seems fantastical but is so real. I have been putting many things that I learn here to practice. I was very interested in meditation and I was so happy when Obara wrote a post about it. I tried meditating for the first time, not knowing what to expect, but nothing happened.I tried again using the salt and it felt like I could slightly hear “someone” speaking to me but not clearly.In the comment section in the meditation post, Obara suggested that while meditating we should picture a high mountain with a boulder on top and then we should picture ourselves trying to push the boulder over the side. Obara also suggested to me the use of crystals.The next morning I used information I gleaned from the posts, The Power of Salt, The Power of Water, Meditation and the one about using candles. Obara also commented that while meditating she listened to meditation music. I decided to try all these suggestions.I bought some crystals and set up my meditation area, the music was playing softly in the background and I had a glass of water in front of me. I held the crystals in my hand and visualized myself pushing the boulder off the mountaintop.
It was difficult at first but I eventually pushed it off. I felt myself soaring, while “flying” I saw a female being flying beside me. I asked her what her name was and she told me;I remembered her accompanying me. After meditating I was a bit doubtful that any of this occurred. I thought I imagined it all. The next day I meditated once more, by picturing the boulder on the mountain and me pushing it. While pushing the boulder the same female being sat on top of the boulder and peered down at me, she said, “why are you pushing it? You don’t have to do that again you know” We went off again “flying”. A few days after this occurred I decided to read some old entries in my dream journal. I read an entry from 2011.This was one of the most depressing period in my life, I felt hopeless. At that time I realized that external help wasn’t available to me so I turned inward and drew on the spirit for help without even being aware that I was doing so. What I read in the journal made me pause. I had written…”A daughter Spirit spoke to me today her name is (same name as the female spirit up top) she said to me clean up the mess, be strong, don’t fight because you are only hurting yourself” under the same entry I also wrote, my mind must be playing tricks on me this can’t be real, the stresses of life is getting to me. I spoke to Obara about this because I wanted assurance that I had not gone crazy or had an over active imagination.I told her about me visualizing the mountain and pushing the boulder off of it on two separate occasions, before I could go any further she asked me why did you push the boulder off the mountain twice? If you did it the first time you don’t have to do it again.
I almost fainted when she said that because that’s basically what the female being said to me and I had not yet mentioned that to Obara!I told her about this female being I “think” I saw and with whom I interacted. She assured me that she is real and she herself has met this being more than once, I didn’t tell her what she looked like and she proceeded to give me a very apt description of her that was spot on.I still can’t believe this happened! I am so excited about the experiences I’ve had because of Obara’s tutelage I’m mind blown by it all.When I heard that little voice in 2011 I just blew it off as a figment of my imagination. Little did I know that she was very much real and would visit me once more in the future. She took the opportunity to do so while I meditated. Now that I’ve been assured that the things I “see” and the beings I “meet” while meditating are real and they have been confirmed as such by Obara, I would like to take the opportunity to share other meditation experiences I’ve had in recent days with you all. With Obara’s permission I would like to write about the tribe that I met (unbeknownst to me the spirit of Obara Meji was with me when I met them) also the being from the deep blue. I encourage you all to give meditation a try and please share your experiences so that we can discuss them. Thank you Obara Meji for opening us up to this beautiful world of spirituality!
