Once again, good evening, everybody, thank you. Thank you, Peter. That was a wonderful reading and yeah, very true – faith. And boy, is our faith getting tested in the moment with everything.
But that is life.
This is why – part of our journey here on this physical plane is to go through these trials, tribulations as well as the joys.
It’s not all doom and gloom, but as well as the joys we are to understand, because life isn’t something you can pick up and read out of a book, it’s not a film you can watch. It’s not a song you can hear. It’s not a story told by somebody else to you. It’s our experience. There is no greater experience.
We come here on this physical plane. I’m a very great believer in we have a plan of life, and when I say that, I don’t mean next Tuesday we’re going to be eating beans on toast, but I mean, the big things within our life are there for us to either undertake, take up the challenge, or not! Because we have free will.
But most of these challenges, most of these trialing times, they do take faith. They do take having faith in the unseen. They do take having that faith – that you are doing whatever is for the best.
And it’s hard it, really, really is hard at times, no body can profess to say, you know, my faith outweighs everything and I don’t have to think about anything that I’m doing because we do, because we are physical beings in the physical world. We can build that faith, we can build that trust. All the time, all the time, but the journey to getting there – Is long, it’s arduous, you know, we look around us, look at today, what should be such a remembrance time of coming together. A consoling time, has seen us divided, but we’re not divided.
You know, we’ve got this medium, the Internet going on, we’ve got telephones or emails or texts, we’ve got all this communication going on within the world. We’ve also got our own communication, our own communion with God and with the spirit, with Jesus. With whichever deity, whichever religion or path you follow. There is no right, there is no wrong. We all choose, we all climb to where we feel comfortable.
That is our path and everybody else has their path, and that’s fine. That’s the way the world should be. You know, Jesus spoke once in Cana, and he said, I’m not here to build the pristine Church. He said, we build towards the universal church and with the spiritualist philosophy, the spiritualist understanding and the insight that he gives here. I mean, what a wonderful thing. What a wonderful thought.
The universal church, just one church where everybody and everything is accepted. But these things will take time. You’re seeing very much at the moment, there are all these different posts flying around about the raising consciousness and the universal energies that are flooding in.
But I don’t think any of these events will change everything overnight. We’ve got to work at it. We’ve got to make it happen. We’ve got to bring these things into being. We’ve got to use the energies that are around. Undoubtedly, the energies around at the moment, really, they are so turbulent. And there’s a lot of old energies coming to light at the moment, which has not been seen by man for many, many centuries.
But I’ve got that faith and that is part of ‘The cycle of life’, it is part of the big plan, you know, I often say about humanity at the moment, we need to grow up.
And I sound a bit harsh, but it’s not meant harshly try not to take words you hear without understanding the energy in which I put across. You know, we have got to grow up. People keep saying we want to return to normal.
Do we? It’s a question for you to answer. Do we do we want to go back to that world where we cared very little for the environment? We cared very little for our fellow man. We cared very little for people in other parts of our own country. Do we want to rush back to that? I believe this time is no accident, we all have our own thoughts, our own ideas.
Whatever my beliefs and my faith in my understanding and my faith in the guides that I speak to, the faith in the paths I’ve been led on, that this is a very, very significant time for humanity. There will be a lot revealed and we’re seeing that already, aren’t we? We are seeing that people, we are seeing those that rise majestically and those that don’t. Or even seeing in ourselves – we’re seeing this openness, this awareness coming in. And it’s not going to be an easy fix, it just can’t be, we can’t flick a switch and it will be wonderful.
And that grim reality is dawning now more and more people. And it’s sad, it’s hard. But we have that faith, you look at the ‘pre-covid era’, so many of us were moved physically, we were put into situations, into areas, into different places from where we normally lived, things came into our life getting us ready for this time. You know, Spirit, well aware what’s coming up. And the myriad of lessons that go with it, and they did their best to make sure.
That nearly everybody had at least something they needed, not what we want – we all want things, you know, ‘want’ is a like a negative energy. It’s a lazy word ‘I want this’, ‘I want that’, ‘I want the lottery’ – but what we need is heard, what we need is trusted when we link in with spirit what we get, what we need, sometimes that might be a lesson. But sooner or later, we learn that we needed that lesson, we needed to change path.
And I think with this world today all across the globe. that need is – ‘To realign’, ‘to reaffirm’, ‘to reunderstand’ our link, with God. You know, over the centuries, God has been given all these human emotions to a degree, and I can’t tell you that’s right I can’t tell you that’s wrong.
It’s not my place to do that – it’s a journey. It’s a journey that we’ve got to explore. But I do know Love is there. I do know love is there. But we’ve been given all these opportunities. And we need to work within the spiritual and within the physical laws.
And this is an area I’ve been drawn to very much over the last few months and sat asking in meditation, Where are they? Where are these laws? I need to see them so I can abide by them. I was told you got to learn them, and I called it straight away, I got it. Because, again, you know, if we read out the riot act, we can’t do this, we can’t do that. We naturally rebel or we naturally come up with an excuse. We naturally gloss over.
But we’re here to learn, and this is a great learning time. But it’s keeping that faith and do you know what, the one undeniable faith and fact that we, as spiritualists understand is, there is no death.
Now, more than ever, all this work we’ve done all over the years with the mediumship and time and time and time again bringing through evidence, a complete stranger, giving you facts about a family member that, you know, they could not have known from anywhere else. How would they?
It’s the evidence, Spirit, gives us evidence. For us to develop that faith. That we’re not all mad. That this is not a load of mumbo jumbo. We are akin to the life course of man because our lives never end. This life, as we call it, is just a facet of the diamond. This is a part of the thread of life. We live one continuous life. And some lessons are going to be there and open for us to see and to learn by, in this state, in this material form, some we may have to wait until we change form again to fully understand.
But it’s about learning. But one of the great strengths that you can keep in your heart and in your mind is there is no death. Once you really get the faith and the understanding that that is true. To you, that is true, it may not be presented in a solid, tangible form which you can take away and examine, but surely over the years with the many messages. That evidence is insurmountable. And with that knowledge – there is no death. We go on.
What a great source of comfort and succour that is to us all. Takes away fear. Takes away the unknown, we may not quite know where we will go to, but the fact remains that we will go on. As others have before us forever. So friends I just ask you just have that faith, that trust this time is here for a reason. Yes, it’s an inconvenience. Yes, we can all very, very easily go out and get into the angry energies.
Yes, we can all become the keyboard warriors the minute we see something go. I’ve got to put my 20 pence worth in. You know what? For every post you see from me, there’s probably about 99 that I deleted because it doesn’t serve a purpose, doesn’t bring harmony, doesn’t bring upliftment – put it in the bin!
Well, we’re here to learn and learn.
We will. We can’t run away. So we bring ourselves into ourselves. Linking with that thread of Divine within. Not linked to a God of a new understanding. And try to bring in that Spirit that cries energy to within our lives. And to hold our lives. Everything within this ball (hands in a ball near the heart) is what we cherish, what we love. Everything in this ball is everything that we can enhance, that we can uplift with our thoughts and our energies.
Everything within this ball. Is that of me! Everything outside of that, I cannot change, I cannot move. I am not part of that.
Be in the world, but not of the world. Thank you for listening.
