Since January, 2013, I have been receiving messages from the other side. Now, I'm being led of Holy Spirit to recall my life's spiritual journey to gain an understanding of this gift.
Today is a continuation of Post dated July 28, 2013. The starting Post was July 14, 2013
"The divorce became final in October, 1982. I was forty-five years old. The details of the divorce are not important to this writing but I was terrorized and several months went by before the nightmares ended. Since reading in those "forbidden books" about meditation along with prayer, I practiced daily during the months leading up to and after the divorce. I even attended the Unity church three different times because Napoleon Hill had made mention of it in at least one of his books. My church that I had been so faithful and loyal to all those years berated me for divorcing and I was without their help. More and more I found faith in God within me, not the church. I was listening to the Still Small Voice and I was being led out of that wilderness. I trusted God completely . . . .. even when there was no hope, I TRUSTED.
Two months before the divorce was final I was awakened at 2am one morning feeling overwhelming anguish with no hope and I began to pray and read the bible. The Still Small Voice within me said, "Well, what are your desires, your goals? Write it down". There was a steno pad on the night stand and I got up, sat on the edge of the bed and I began to write. There was no thinking ahead of what to ask for because Holy Spirit was revealing my desires to me, one after another. I still have the original sheet of paper with my list of "Desires & Goals" I wrote down that night. There are eleven desires or goals listed but the first and most important one that heads the list isn't numbered. It is: To Know And Do The Will Of God. That is still foremost in my life. I wish that I could share my list but it is much too personal to share here. I have shared the list with a few special people in my life through the years so they too, could know that God did answer and provided for me everything I listed. To this day, thirty-one years later, I am still reaping the rewards of that list.
Also, during the months before the divorce I read about The Law Of Attraction that is valid for each of us. Being instructed by my intuitive voice within, I wrote down my affirmation and these were the words I wrote as near as I can remember them. "I, Nora, do firmly believe and I fully accept my soulmate, the good man God is bringing to me now. Because I have been taught to ask in the name of Jesus, I ask for my soulmate in the name of Jesus. THANK YOU."
Although, I had asked for and received many things in the past, this was my first experience to ask according to the Divine Law Of Attraction. I was free of the old man-made rules and religious dogma that had governed my life for so many years. Spiritually, I was expanding! Faithfully, I read and reaffirmed my affirmation each day. I believed, I knew and I expected my soulmate to arrive.
Less than four months later, two months after the divorce was final, Karl Kasten, my soulmate and I were together. Our meeting truly was by divine appointment and we were together for nearly twenty-eight and wonderful years. We were married for almost twenty-six of those great years. Karl transitioned on August 13, 2010 and I am still learning how to live without him being physically here with me. Grief and all it's agony is just that . . . agony.
From Unity's "Daily Word" Tuesday, July 30, 2013
Centered in Spirit, I live in harmony and balance with all creation.
Great dancers have mastered the art of spinning quickly without losing their balance. This is because they know how to center their bodies and then “spot” themselves by focusing on and repeatedly turning their attention to one steady point as they spin.
In the flurry of modern life, I, too, can remain balanced by centering and “spotting.” I begin the day by centering myself spiritually. I release any thoughts of discord, align my thoughts with divine order, and realize the One Mind that is the source of all creation. As I move into the day’s activities, I “spot” myself by repeatedly turning my attention to Spirit. My consciousness of Spirit orders my steps, keeping me balanced throughout the day.
Let your good spirit lead me on a level path.—Psalm 143:10
