Blog-Buddies, with today’s post I’ll make it official that Your Path to Enlightenment is a theme on this blog about Deeper Perception Made Practical. We have, after all, been dancing around this topic for months.
For starters, I’ll share a recent email exchange with Mr. Enlightenment, Jeffrey Chappell.
Unfortunately Jeffrey Chappell is no longer on my Enlightenment Life List, but he was at the time of this blog post.
I had expressed concern to Jeffrey about one of my clients. Joe had been trying to live from his Higher Self, as described below. And what set him off was what I considered to be a misunderstanding about Jeffrey’s book, Answers from Silence.
This wasn’t just some trivial teensy technical point but a heartfelt attempt, on the part of Joe, to seek Enlightenment. Have you ever sought spiritual or psychic guidance in order to move all the faster towards Enlightenment? That’s what Joe was doing, throwing himself into it with a wallop.
Your comments and stories on this topic are invited, Blog-Buddies. Sharing could help our whole Online Community move faster toward self-realization. Now, here’s my e-dialogue with Mr. Enlightenment.
Trying to live from your Higher Self
As I (Rose Rosetree) wrote to Mr. Enlightenment, JOE’s aura was quite out of whack during a recent session. Turns out, what was going on was this:
Joe loves Answers from Silence. He took from it the message which I am not sure that you intended, Jeffrey, that the WAY to become spiritually Enlightened is to constantly, in the midst of daily life, keep trying to get information from one’s Higher Self.
My understanding about spiritual evolution, and the message I took from your book, were quite different. I understood you to suggest the following as a path to Enlightenment:
- Have your daily human activity and let it be real to you. Care about what you care about.
- Have a dedicated spiritual practice that you do for a reasonable amount of time during your day, e.g., 1 hour or less.
- Have some limited, dedicated times during your day or week when you sit and ask for Answers from Silence.
What program and message would you really recommend?
Better than outsourcing life to your Higher Self
BTW, with JOE, I did advise him not to divide his mind during regular daily life. It made sense to him. Just changing his focus by hearing this idea, which resonated with him, Joe’s aura was back to normal and much more balanced by the end of his session.
Also, in case this should be relevant, a big part of the work I do with clients, helping them progress in their human lives, is to give feedback when I notice a spiritual addiction.
My new book, Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy has a lot of information about this. I go to some length as an aura reader clarifying that living in an out-of-balance way, constantly trying to “be spiritual” and “receive guidance” in the midst of activity, does NOT help a person to be more whole.
It can even become an addictive process, a bit like “outsourcing” human life to a guide or to one’s Higher Self. (What I call “energetic subroutines” in the language of aura reading or energetic literacy.)
By contrast, the aura of someone who is spiritually Enlightened works with ALL that person’s faculties which I call “chakra databanks” working in a vigorous way and internally balanced.
YOU are like that, to this aura reader, Jeffrey. I’m very interested in how things seem to you from the other side of the great and sparkly divide between those of us who aren’t yet Enlightened and someone like you.
Mr. Enlightenment on “Higher Self boosts” toward Enlightenment
Here was Mr. Enlightenment’s response to my inquiry.
I would really recommend the program you that you recommend! You have hit it exactly on the nose with your steps 1, 2, and 3. In fact, the first question in Mr. Enlightenment Part II is “What practical steps did you take to get enlightened?” and my original answer was going to be this:
1. I lived my life.
2. I meditated as a daily habit.
3. I had dialogues with my Enlightened Self.
…Which is the same as what you said! Kind of freaky!
I also added another step: “When enlightenment came, I yielded.”
I mostly had Enlightened Self dialogues when I was out of balance and needing insight, not as a track running through daily life; and I refer to that fact in the introduction to the book.
Thanks for clarifying things for Joe.
