It’s funny…being a medium, I hear voices all the time. Sometimes, they are my own thoughts, flitting through my mind like kids through the sprinkler on a hot summer day: Run the dishwasher. Drop those old clothes off at Good Will. Check on the boys’ progress with their summer reading. Sometimes, they’re intuitive perceptions picked up from clients, friends, or family members: Ask how her mother is doing. She’s processing her abuse situation through this pain in her back. Give him a hug–he just got a piece of bad news. And sometimes, they are the voices of my spirit guides, whispering words of wisdom: Stop worrying about money–the Universe is abundance! All is in Divine Order, dear child of Creator! You are Divine! Love yourself! Being able to discern these three types of voices has been a challenge, but over the years, I’ve learned that all of the voices are important. The ones from Spirit, however, are those that I yearn to hear the most because they strengthen my connection to those higher vibrations and remind me that I’m never, ever alone. I’ve learned to really listen when my spirit guides speak; I understand that they have something very important to say if they do.
So today, as I was working in my office, I heard my Master Guide, Merlin, speaking in his loving, authoritative voice. “I have things to tell people,” he said. Then, a title flashed across my mind: Monday Message from Merlin. I wrinkled my brow and shot a thought back at him. What’s this mean? “Your blog,” he said. ‘That new means of communication you’ve established. You’ve been wanting another feature on it, something to prompt you to update more than once a week on Tarot Tuesday. I would like my own feature.”
I laughed. If you know Merlin, he’s always wanting to impart his wisdom. I always joke that he’s the theatrical one, not me. But here’s the thing: it’s not about ego for him. He really does have some amazing things to say. It’s me that’s reluctant to let him speak, because I suppose I think people will assume I’m crazy.
I should be used to this by now, right? Who cares what people think? I’m serving Spirit, and that should be my priority. That should be my attitude, I know. But, I’ll let you in on a little secret. Here it is: I’m human. And I still get scared. Not of my spirit people, not of Merlin–it’s not anything like that. It’s that age-old dilemma of wanting people to respect and accept me. So many of us that are interested in esoteric things feel the same pressure and anxiety about fitting in. It’s just another way we’re all in the same boat.
Still, I know that if I allow Merlin to do this, it will be a good thing. It will be wonderful to connect with him on a weekly basis to tap into his thoughts and teachings, and hopefully, others besides myself might benefit from this wisdom.
So, here’s the big announcement: starting next week, on Mondays, there will be a new post under the heading Monday Message from Merlin. I imagine it will be a channeled piece of writing. I have no idea at this point what Merlin will want to address–but I trust him, and I know it will be worthwhile.
So, I hope you’ll stop by to check out the new feature.
