    To Be in Spirit or not to be.......!

    Post  SpiritVoices on Tue Jan 13, 2015 5:24 pm

    At this moment in time I am not sure exactly where I am supposed to be.

    Heaven,Hell or just plain out in space!

    No definative feeling at all of where I am going.

    How do you all feel where you are at this moment in time?

    I guess the 2 obvious options are to be coming from ego or spirit.  Most of the time I admit to
    operating from ego but, being mindful, I have awareness of how I conduct myself and always
    strive to better myself....that is the spirit side of me coming through.

    If I were more in spirit, I would be more accepting, loving and in more constant harmony with life.
    As it is, I do very well, i.e. am centred, and mostly quite serene but my ego often comes to the fore
    since I am also outspoken and have a keen sense of justice.

    There are many times that I feel like I am more in spirit than in the flesh. It feels like I am viewing the world through some sort of a veil. I feel totally disconnected from the physical world. This is usually after a nap when my spirit doesn't seem to have rejoined my body when I woke up.At times, this can last for quite a while (seems like an hour or so).

    1antique do you practise grounding at all? That would stop the feeling and connect you to the moment.

    It might be good practice for anyone to use grounding techniques, they can be as simple as sipping water or rinsing one's hands under cold running water. Immediately the mind and body are brought back into one, in that moment.

    I must say that, many times, I neglect to ground myself afterwards.

    In a way, I kinda enjoy the feeling. Kinda like smoking some illegal stuff.   :happy:

    Just spotted this.   Very much the same to how I feel at times,1antique.   Takes me a while to wake up...

    My suggestion is that you're exactly where you're supposed to be, Joanie.  Not out in space although I understand why you might feel that way.  Definitely not in any kind of hell.  If you were intended, or had yourself chosen, to be in so-called Heaven, then that's where you'd be.  For now it's a way off and who of us ever knows how far off that may be until perhaps the very last days or hours - and we still might be wrong even when we felt sure!  :love:

    Mac, I think you are right.   We are all exactly where we are supposed to be.  We might not be happy with this, but that's how it is.

    I feel different from the way I have always lived my life,now why should that be?
    I feel the world is changing.   I feel I am changing.   Strangely among friends I feel I am finding enemies and among enemies I feel I am finding friends.
    Strange,eh?

    I can't comment on your life, Joanie, but in my own it's been constant flux and how I feel today isn't how I felt months and years before, even though some fundamentals remain largely unchanged over three decades. 

    Yes you're right that the world is changing but then it always has.  Although I'm a different age from you I'm feeling change in myself whereas up to a shortish while ago I didn't notice it much.  That could be down to a huge global shift or it could just be me getting old!

    And maybe things aren't changing more than they ever did but what's happening is our perspective on them is changing?

    I understand the feeling you have,Mac.     A different world,a different life,different time.

    What part of time do you feel you are in?
    The Past or the Future?

    I can't say I feel I'm in any time other than this present one even though things are changing around me.  There was a time I felt I was here more as an observer than a participant but that feeling diminished as I grew older and now I feel I'm more in participant mode, poor health and old age just around the corner.

    I feel that I'm in the Here and Now, and that this is where I'm meant to be.

    To be in Spirit,is where I long to be.......

    I wonder why!      This world we are in now,holds no more interest for me.
    I wonder if we will all meet up again.

    Who would like to meet up again?

    My dear friend, Joanie

    I know of what you speak. I have spent so much time in spirit that, sometimes, I wonder why I even bother coming back. Then, I am gently reminded of the duties I have here in the physical. I am reminded of the interactions that must take place...of the people and animals I am to help before I can go home. So, I, impatiently, await the day that I can, once again, permanently return to where I belong.

    My friend, you know that your friends and family await your return home. It will be a wondrous reunion. Those that you have touched here will also greet you....when the time is right. We will not forget you, not will you forget us.

    Be patient, my friend. All will be as it should.   :hugz:
