I have known my work is “Literary Fiction” in that every word counts, and the characters are rich, multi-layered, complex. It is “Magic Realism” in that it reads as though this is just an everyday story while making laying-on-of-hands, reincarnation and such clearly part of that reality, and relevant to our strained and challenging modern lives. But now with the sub-genre “Visionary Fiction” I get the rest of it. Ancient principles and teachings shared without preaching. Powerful emphasis on the limitless potential each has for growth and transformation. These are the bases for every one of my novels. It is all there now. Thank you so much for this new discovery, Ellis Nelson.
For every object or bottle of holy water I got for our talismans bag, my object was always to bless it, fill it with healing and spiritual power, and then pass it along to someone who needed it (when that time came, which I trusted would not be soon).
Well, you remember how I used to know full well whom I was sending healing energies to; there was definite and clear internationality to the process. I sat down, went into my eerie place, zeroed in on someone, and zapped her.- Then I went through a personally troubling time when I couldn’t feel or direct that anymore. I needed to let go of any shadow of ego; just trust that the powers that be would use me as needed.
The healings continued, but I wasn’t allowed to see any spooky spreadsheet of who was being helped; how, when, and where.
Perhaps I am going through more of that now as one-by-one my favorite personal talismans disintegrate from the altar. I’ve lost four of them, one at a time, in recent weeks.
One was returned to me, but only after Lyndie and I stopped what we were doing, to sit side by side until we had sorted through to some of the metaphysical underpinnings of its disappearance.
It came back, minutes later, on the other side of town, and under very strange circumstances.
Perhaps “my” treasured relics and talismans are being sent to those in need; fulfilling my wishes and intentions, but without the ego boost of me having any say or choice in the matter.
That does seem to be the trend of the lessons at the moment. Wanting anything to go a particular way comes from ego.
I really need to let go of that.
Do I believe in miracles? No, not really. Do I believe that there have been, and are, great teachers and developed human beings who have raised others from the dead, multiplied food stores, pulled objects out of nothingness, and travelled long distances out of body? Absolutely. But I don’t see these things as miracles. There are many laws of Nature that science has not yet discovered, categorized, and mapped out in mathematical formulae. But they are still laws of Nature. Some metaphysicians have been able to work with them just as you and I work with gravity when we stand up or sit down. Just because they are outside what science recognizes doesn’t make them unnatural. And, since they are natural, and since those who make use of them are staying within natural laws, then I don’t see such things as being miracles.
