Why is meditation practice important in order for one to be connected to the source?
Any given meditation practice is not necessarily important. It depends on who you are. Some of you will have certain meditation practices be a perfect fit for connecting you in source, others of you will not. The thing that is important about meditation, as you have all defined it as what we are going to call "silence". Silence is important for connecting with source. Meditation practice is one of the most direct ways to enter silence. Different practices lead you there in different ways and all of them are fine, though some of them will not be fine for some of you. Silence is important because source, or God, or the divine, whatever you want to call it, is not something that you reach for, it is something that you remember. The fact is you are the Divine. You are a part of Source.
The process of connecting with Source, connecting with God, requires some degree of inner silence. It is in that inner silence that you remember who you really are. It is in that inner silence that your mind can come to a realization of what it feels like to be your true self. Now keep in mind that meditation practice, often the first section or phase of meditation practice, involves a lot of discomfort. What you first come up with is not who you truly are but all of the blocks, fears and baggage that has been piled upon you. Do not imagine that is who you truly are. As long as you are grappling with that you are not really in the silence quite yet. It is worthwhile to keep waiting for it because eventually after enough practice or waiting, you come to true silence; the silence that is who you truly are is your best way of perceiving the divine or source. Any given meditation practice is not necessary for this but silence is necessary; inner contemplative, peaceful, loving silence. Any spiritual practice that helps you find that over and over again is beneficial.
Why do I feel my connection to the source fade over a period of time once I have been awakened and reminded of my soul spirit?
This is one of the reasons that spiritual practice is not a singular event -- it is an ongoing process. Spiritual practice is always meant to be returned to time and time again. The way that this works is all of you are divine beings and all of you are human beings. Part of being human and living in the human world is experiencing fragmentation or separation, experiencing yourselves as separate from one another or separate from the divine. While it is not actually true that you are separate, it is true for your experience here as long as you are a human being, there is a truth in experience. You do experience yourselves as separate. The ebb and flow of being human involves moving in and out of your true self. This occurs in all kinds of ways. You fall in and out of alignment. You fall in and out of feeling good or bad, in and out of love with yourselves and each other.
Nothing here is static; in fact, nothing in the universe is static. There is no way as a human being to achieve a permanent unchanging static experience of source. It will never happen, even for those who claim Enlightenment and describe a feeling of being in that bliss all of the time, they know that bliss is continually fluctuating. It may stay up at a certain height or level of vibration but it is always going up and down. As long as you are a human there is ebb and flow in life. The reason that you are experiencing this connection, you feel the connection with source and then you feel it fade away is in a basic sense that you are human. As long as you are human you will feel periods of fragmentation. It is that precisely what is meant to lead you to the next stage or next level of connection. It is useful to employ spiritual practices to carry you through the times when it is easy to feel connected with source and times when it is not easy to feel the connection with source. Both times are relevant, both times are important parts of the process of being human. Over time as you employ spiritual practices, the difference between the highs of connection and the lows of fragmentation become less, so the roller coaster ride of being human becomes more like a gentle rolling journey. That is the reason that you sometimes feel disconnected.
Why do some people have the ability to channel while others have clairvoyant or psychic abilities? If we are all one and we are created the same and connected to the same source, why are there different abilities? Should we not all have the same gifts?
This answer is similar to the one before. You are all connected to one another and you are all connected to Source. Theoretically, officially, you all have the ability to channel and you all have the ability to tune into your higher selves in that knowledge from beyond the veil. It was never meant to be that you would have the same gifts -- for if you did, what would be the point of being separate from one another? Part of what is interesting about the process of being separated, or seeing yourselves as separate from one another, is that you can then experience yourselves as different from one another. One of the grand purposes, one of the brilliant results of the human experiment which is fundamentally an experiment in fragmentation, is that you have come to develop, understand and value diversity. Through diversity you find new ways of connecting with one another that you could not have found if you were all the same. This is one of the reasons that the human world was created in the first place.
As divine beings, all of you can do everything and know everything all of the time. There is no way to have what you had here as humans, which is, as a human being, when you experience yourself as separate and fragmented and you forget who you truly are, then you are led to imagine that you are missing some things. At its best, the human race reaches out to one another, helps one another and shares in a way that allows each of you to get what you need through connecting with others. It leads you to an entirely new level of connection that was never available to you before you became human. It was never available to you to need help or to offer help or to get help. Help only comes from those who have something to offer that you could not offer for yourself. That is one of the many very different reasons that you are different from one another. No, you are never meant to have the same gifts. Theoretically on paper, you all have the same abilities. Human beings are born with a connection to their higher self. Any one of you has the ability to develop clairvoyance, to develop the ability to channel.
Some of you, this is part of your contract, it is part of your life path and it is something that you will develop whether you try to or not. Others of you, for the purposes of your life experience, whatever your soul has decided to do in this world, you did not have a clear purpose in learning to channel or reclaiming your clairvoyance. For those you, while you can develop your clairvoyance, it will not come as easily and it will not, for many of you, even interest you because it is not what you are here for; it is not what you came here to do. Just as with all other gifts and abilities, any of you can develop any ability you would like to. Some will come more easily to you; others will come more easily to other people. The beauty in that is learning to honor and respect your path and learning to honor and respect the paths of others. In doing so through sharing, all of you get exactly what you need. The clear answer is all of you channel information from your Akashic Records. This comes in the form of intuition, divine coincidences and much more.
The fact is all of you get the information you need from your Records the instant that you need it and you are ready for it; it appears. Sometimes you ignore it and sometimes you talk yourself out of it and that is fine. That is a normal part of being human. Some of you are called to channel for others but every single one of you channels for yourselves. The first step in connecting with information from beyond the veil is noticing, valuing and trusting the information that you already get. There is not a single person alive on Planet Earth who does not in one form or another, get information from their Akashic Records on a regular basis. If you are skipping that part, if you are imagining that what you get is not real, you are not going to develop the next steps. You must honor what you get and learn to trust it. Learn to discern what pieces are in alignment for you and what pieces are not. That is the foundation for developing further clairvoyance or channeling.
In my meditation practice, I have gone to a place in my mind that is lit with a very warm, safe and appealing light. In that place, I have been able to connect with others and heal and resolve things. I am wondering if the other person experiences that space too? Do they enter the Records too?
When you go to a place in your mind through meditation, you are actually going to a place, though you usually for the most part do not take your physical body with you, it is useful to leave your physical body firmly on Planet Earth; it helps you function better in your everyday life if you do that. You can literally take your spirit or raise your conscious mind into a place where your spirit already resides. That is what you are sensing as this warm, loving, appealing place; this light. This is a place that is not a single place. In very general terms we are going to say that it is the spirit world. You reside there all of the time. This place, or an experience of this place, is always accessible to you. One of the benefits of meditation practice is that you can go there; you can tap into that consciously and use that to reassure your conscious mind to bring a sense of calm and peace to interact with other spirit beings and to bring about healing, rest or whatever you might need. This place is real. You live there already.
When you connect with another being there, some human being whose spirit you see in that place, yes, and their spirit is experiencing that with you. It depends on the person, whether that person's conscious mind is aware of that or not. The way things work in the spirit world is that all of you are there at all times. Whether your conscious mind is paying attention or not, part of yourself, your soul self, is in the spirit world, interacting with other people and other spirit beings all of the time. As such you can, literally and truthfully, it would be accurate to say that you meet up with other spirits and whatever you consciously see happen there does happen in the spirit world and it does have an energetic affect in the physical world. This is the reason that some of you have gone through these meditations to resolve issues with other people. Then you find that the issue in everyday life seems to lose its charge. It seems to come to a resolution seemingly on its own, though you know that you began to do the work in the spirit world.
Most of the time the other person's conscious mind is not aware of this because the fact is, most of you are not aware of what you are doing in the spirit world most of the time. It might be confusing to talk about it in waking life with people. They will not have the same memory that you have of that meditation. Occasionally you find these magical crossroads where someone tells you that they had a dream, then you tell them about your meditation and then you find that both of you were able to bring your consciousness to the same event in the spirit world. It is magical and powerful when you find those crossroads because it helps you develop further understanding in your conscious mind for what is happening in spirit.
How do I maintain that safe and loving energy when the other person appears and all of these other things begin to pop up in waking, everyday life?
We can tell you how but that will not make it doable all of the time. As we all know, human relationships are complex and the human psyche is complex. There will be times when you can maintain that sense of safety and there will be times when you cannot. It is up to you to decide. If you can create that safe and loving space with that person in spirit that may be enough and you may not need to do much with them in waking life. The fact is often in waking physical life, people are not ready to take a certain step with you and it is always a legitimate and useful option to decide not to interact with someone either permanently or for a period of time. If you cannot create a safe and loving space with a person, it would be fine to just avoid sharing a space with them all together. The how, or the way to try to create that safe and loving space, happens completely within you. You can, when you go into meditation, attune your energy to that safe and loving space and that will make it more accessible to you when you are fully conscious. There are many spiritual practices that help you tune in again to that safe and loving space.
Every religion offers you practices along these lines. We will mention them here, but there are so many choices that you can choose any one that feels right for you. You can pray, take three deep breaths, envision a field of light around you and activate that field through your chakras, you can use the practices in radical forgiveness, there are endless techniques for aligning your energy and bringing you to that safe and loving space. It boils down to one of the beautiful and very painful facts about your separation from one another is that you cannot control each other and you cannot always know or direct what will be experienced by the other person. You can bring that safe and loving energy into yourself, into your body, into your energy field, but you cannot guarantee that the space will be created for you both in waking life. You can try it and then it is important to notice if it worked or if it did not work, and be honest with yourself about that. You will never be able to impose a safe and loving space on someone but you can create it, you can invite and you can see what happens. Often magical things happen when you do this.
