Spirit or My Own Thoughts? How You Hear From Spirit Without Realizing It

Artwork by: Sarah Jung

I know it has been a long time since I have written a post, and I thank all who have sent me emails wondering where I’ve been or how I am doing. Here I am today! And I believe this post is needed for all of us, especially within this time and the time we are heading towards.

I’ve often spoken about spirit here on my blog, and the word, as I use it, is plural not singular. “Spirit” seems to be easily defined but it is more than what you can fathom.

Saying “spirit” can allude to the underlying essence of a bed or table, to a book, to celestial beings, to higher forms of life, a plant, or any form of Intelligence, with or without a physical body, and even this explanation is still limited in describing what spirit is.

But in this post, the spirit that I am specifically speaking of today, is a mysterious non-physical high conscious being that guides us. What it is exactly, I am not sure. But whether you believe in it or not, each and every being on this planet is fitted with his or her own conscious being that is attached to him or her. It is this spirit that guides anyone who divines as a medium or deals with oracle, this great mystery that guides the diviner’s messages and solutions. No matter what “individual” deity or specific spirit he may be in contact with; there is more occurring than what he is aware of.

This great mystery is what gives that burst of inspiration, or that sudden remembrance of something you had forgotten, or that feeling not to go somewhere, or the impulse to get up and go, or perhaps the reason your car won’t start even though there is no issue with it. It is spirit. It is ever becoming and expansive and it is a mystery that no one knows or perhaps can ever properly define.

Yet you interact with it everyday. But how do you know?

All my life I’ve had interactions with this mystery. To say I was a strange child is to put it mildly, because I did not understand myself. Spirit has always interacted with me from a younger age through things that were around me. For example, as I’ve written here before, at age 5 there were stones being thrown at me from the back of my cherry tree in Jamaica. But no one was behind that tree.

None of the stones ever hit me, but I believe now as I am older, that at those times, something wanted me to be aware of its presence. Even though I was young, I believe they knew that I would remember this. I give this example because there are many people, at whatever stage of life that they may be in, often times facing difficulties, who wonder about their lives, the direction it is going and how they can communicate or hear from with something divine for comfort or answers.

Most often the answers that they’re seeking, they have already received because this mysterious spirit speaks to us in many ways in our everyday lives. To many people, when you talk about spirit, the mind thinks of an ancestor, or some great apparition to appear in some form to them like the picture used in this blog post, but they do not understand that subtlety is the language of spirit, not drama.

Imagine it this way: the farther away something gets from Earth, the thinner the atmosphere will become. Therefore, spirit, which is above the physical, has its nature in subtlety, so its language, naturally, will be a subtle one.

In order for spirit to speak as dramatically as Hollywood and our imaginations believe, that spirit itself has to return to “Earth” (i.e. meaning lower its vibration) in order to communicate in the way the human can understand. But that is not its nature.

When that spirit communicates, depending on how “high” the interpreter is will determine how clear the message is received and delivered. In other words, just as we get further away from Earth and the atmosphere becomes thinner, so, too, is it when the spiritualist or diviner becomes higher in spirit (i.e. away from denseness), he becomes further away from humanness and more like spirit (i.e. of a thinner or “lighter” nature), and so has greater clarity in interpretation of spirit or oracle messages. Diviners like these listen more than they speak, and speak only the word of spirit, not his own opinion, which is contrary to spirit and truth.

But other than spiritualists and diviners, spirit speaks to anyone and through any medium.

But first there is a warning that all and sundry needs to be aware of, and this warning has to do with you and your mind. How you think. Your thoughts. Your desires. Your perception…

I allude to all these things because it is your mind that is used to perceive spirit. It is the link to whatever is of an invisible nature to us. If you observe Susan and her usual habits very closely, every movie she watches, the villain or depressed character is her favorite character. She seems very upbeat and happy usually, but she does not believe good things could ever happen to someone like her. She seems to have a normal life, but she became in low spirits when she got the phone call that her best friend was about to get a promotion at her job. Susan, who is in a higher position than her best friend only had to give a good recommendation and her friend would move up. She did give the recommendation, but it was not given with the enthusiasm that her friend was worthy of. And so with her friend’s rejection of the promotion, Susan became higher in spirits and comforted her disappointed friend.

There are many Susans in the world. Although this suggests Susan to be a bad person, this is not necessarily so in every case. In fact, what has happened to Susan is that because of the darkness that she has entertained all her life (being unhappy with her life), this has created an energy or entities that are attracted to Susan’s subconscious. In other words, Susan has created dark beings that receive their nutrients through Susan’s negative emotions. Her mind has literally become a feeding ground for negative spirits.

So a mind like Susan’s when she wants to hear from spirit, whether through visions and dreams or nature, she will hear from spirit through chaos or darkness simply because her mind represents a portal of darkness. Therefore, the messages that comes through that portal will match the frequency of the mind. This muddles the conversation that Susan has with her own higher consciousness, because light (the pure consciousness) can not enter the darkness. It is only the absence of darkness that gives way to light.

Therefore, as all humans experience some form of difficulty or challenge, the degree of hardship is often determined by the mind of the individual, because it is this mind that manifests hardship to be as great as death or rape, or as minor as an argument or loss of money. One of the things that determines what degree of hardship we face is the fears we possess, and often times we are not even aware of what we are afraid of. The worst of them are the ones we are afraid to talk about, the subject we avoid. These are the ones that eventually manifests in our lives… but only as illusions. Tricks conjured by our own mind, for only a short time, but as mental torture. Like the Joker with a smile or the Devil showing his teeth. All depending on how you handle it.

Fear, in itself, is a form of insanity. So is anger. They are such because they are corruptions of the mind, its freedom and reason. Like a clogged drain that needs to be freed. We must be aware of our own selves in order to know that we are the warden that can free ourselves from the cage in which we have imprisoned our own minds.

So how do we hear from Spirit? First of all, try not to listen. Because you will not hear anything. It is only the rested mind that can hear. Not the troubled.

If a man is blind, his hearing will heighten. If a man is deaf, his senses become more aware. One thing must be at rest in order for another to come to life. Do not force spirit. Do not force spirituality. It is only through subtleness, it’s nature, that spirit can pass. This is why it is when the body is rested that the mind dreams, or in a “spaced out” state that images or videos flicker past the mind that turn out to be prophetic.

Let the knowing that spirit is ever present with you be a rested knowledge. If you are to hear from spirit, you will and you already do.

Obara Meji


PS:

Thoughts go through our minds endlessly, but the difference between this mental activity and spirit interaction is that spirit message is a presence of thought, a sudden invasion of the mind, gently and unexpectedly passing by. For example, you could be focused on work when suddenly you have a “thought” that says you need to drink water. It is a gentle message with a firm grip, and it does not repeat itself. The average man will often ignore this invasion, or doubt it.

The message can also confirm itself through another medium, like if your mother calls and mentions that she’s heading out to buy some water, or even more mysteriously, you may happen to see an advertisement for Aquafina.

The more advanced one becomes in listening, the clearer the message will be. Instead of “hearing” that you need to drink more water, you may see a flash of a water bottle in your mind’s eye. Or in even more advancement, you may see a flash of yourself drinking the water. Or in other cases, you may not have any of these experiences, but instead a strong conviction of a strange and unexpected thought.

Those who “do not hear” from spirit, do receive messages but are too mentally busy, too worried or chaotic that subtle messages go completely unnoticed.

We must learn to unclutter our minds. We must give ear to the divine so that we can advance spiritually.

“…If you are slaves, you must no longer count on your virtue, and consequently on your happiness. Wisdom, which alone can procure it, makes its voice heard only by men who are free, or who strive to become so.”

Supreme Rising Obara and ES Family Queen Obara thank you for this enlightening post. There’s been times I’ve said that I should have listened to my spirit/first thoughts when situations occur. Spirit is there to guide and protect us, if only we would listen more. I’ve read a few of your wonderful posts and the one which tells us of signs from nature I can testify as truths. In that post you mentioned when ants appear ……….. months after reading the post I noticed ants in the kitchen, in an odd area. Spirit immediately told me to remember Obara’s post.… Read more »

I missed you so much Obara. Thank you for blessing us with your knowledge.

It has been a very eventful few months for me. This message came at a perfect time as I have just recently been trying to make a more conscious effort to relax and be one with myself.
Thanks again.

Good afternoon Ma’am, I’m glad to see this post , it resonates with me and also reminded me of a previous post here on ES that I love so much. As stated by you ” This muddles the conversation that Susan has with her own higher consciousness, because light (the pure consciousness) can not enter the darkness. It is only the absence of darkness that gives way to light.” From the above I had to question my thinking because I believe light always overpowers darkness, light can show up where there is darkness and darkness will often disappear. I have… Read more »

Thank you ma’am for taking time out of your busy schedule to read my lengthy reply, and also for expounding on the post and my comment. I must say Dogma really limits thought, descriptions for the limited mind. I have a lot to learn. So much to know that I don’t know. I’m saving this reply of yours as a post on my Note pad. Please try do a post on “Light and Darkness” I believe a lot of people need to read this, a lot of people will learn from this topic, and I also want know more. Thank… Read more »

Aburo Aboye ma’am, It’s exciting to see a new post. This was a good read i must say. When you said message from spirit is usually confirmed through another medium it made me smile broadly as this is so trueeeee. I had an experience a couple of days ago, where i was having a chat and we both where in high spirits. As we have learned from your teachings to be detached and control our thought process, we talked about the things we have faced in life and how we overcame them. Simultaneously we both said “we have conquered and… Read more »

Awesome reply ma’am. You answer to question got me thinking. I had an experience. It was just a little after 6am. I was lying in bed facing upwards just about to get up. Suddenly i froze like when someone is being held down but i was aware and with eyes open. I sensed a presence beside the bed on the other side, i tried to turn right but couldn’t. There was a figure standing it was black colored in my head i said what is it? But I couldn’t speak so it sounded like i was struggling. I kept trying… Read more »

Peace unto you Obara! May your lights keeps on shinning.. Thanks so much for this lesson, I really need to work on my Thoughts too.. I’m not a good dreamer, but I often receive guidance through thoughts.. just that minds can be trouble at times with future plans thought, which can make someone a slave like the last phrase, one has to free the minds to enable it receive light..

Obara ….you spoke of a “susan” …. how does one change that sort of attitude and become truly genuine?.

I want to attract all the good this world have to offer… and I want to believe it’s possible….. how do I change that and move into positivity?

I love this reply ma’am, you broke it down. You said it all. I can attest to everything you said. When people are worried and scared even in death situation I feel positive, sometimes I don’t just care because of my discipline and exposure. People think I’m heartless. I just laugh most times. People fear what they don’t understand. Like for example, when a famous musican lost someone close to him this year, people close to me were sad about the situation and was worried about this musican, as for me, I didn’t care. I told them not to worry… Read more »

I just wanted more and more and I had a lot to read and gain from both posts and comments….The fact that we all wanted to see Obara post and she did post is one of the numerous validations of her teachings…. but I feel we have one fear and a lot of people keep asking her if she is good…. I think we can do better based on… Read more »

You made a lot of sense with this your comment, thank you Kehinde. You stated something that resonates with me. Most times I don’t text Obara to know if she is doing ok because my spirit already tells me how she is doing whenever I think of her. It may be difficult to understand but whenever Obara is facing challenges I know, I think about her and I have the feeling that something is wrong with her without me communicating with her or even doing a reading about her condition. Like the early hours of this morning, I was about… Read more »

Amen.. thank you so very much…. I am expected to know the difference between a good and a bad thought or knowing when a thought is sent to manipulate or attack …. Oh it seems like I sounded like every thought that comes and his impressed upon the heart should be accepted…. Life is all about perspective…. My Christian friends will say a wrong voice led me here…. You will say it’s a good voice… They will say the voice was sent to manipulate and take me away from church…. You will say it was sent to align my part… Read more »

Welcome back again Obara missing you chaw chaw, It feels great to get in touch with you. Obara I owe you a box of chocolates for explaining all the complexity of meditation in just a simple sentence thank you soo much. My question is what do you do in return to make the Spirit know that you are aware or acknowledge of its presence? Is it every soul that passes on into the spirit meets with the ethereal council irrespective of whether it leads a good or bad life to render account on its earthly life before it’s dwelling is… Read more »

Soooooo flipping excited to get a notification that there was a new post and even more excited at the content! Great read. I personally love hearing spirit in dreams and immediately when I wake from them because, as you mentioned, the spaced out state is when we receive with higher clarity. That being said, do you recommend any ways other than meditation to actively declutter the mind?

Just this morning, I was saying I must send you an email. GLAD you are OK.

When I was younger I remember opening my room door and seeing the rocking chair rocking by it self….. a picture shifting by itself. I didn’t see anything… but I felt.

I long to communicate with my spirit guide again especially now in my 50’s. And I to find my way and clear debts and bills. So I sit quietly

Osun Yeye OOO!!! Ore Yeye OOO!!! It is indeed a blessing to be able to hear from you in this way, at this time, with this message. Understanding the spiritual aspect of our being is a complex simplicity and your writing makes this experience much more manageable. I can relate to the concepts you have shared as this has truly been my experience. In recent times, I’ve been shocked at the subtely and precision in revelations. Question: 1. What determines the point at which we are should transform ourselves to a higher state of consciousness versus spirit having to lower… Read more »
