When I first started to look for help to understand the contact I was getting from Spirits I found out there were rules. Lots of them. Rules that seemed designed to keep me out rather than invite me in. It was only when I began breaking the rules that I found out my experiences were more meaningful than anything else.
I’ve been to do a demonstration fo my Trance mediumship this evening. It was actually the first form of mediumship I ever did. And my first public mediumship too. Yet when I tried to find ways of having more of the trance mediumship experiences I ran into lots of rules. Some were apparently written down, Others seemed to be rather off the cuff. It meant that I found it hard to develop that particular ability. Except that my Guide Team were very keen to help me bend and, where necessary, set about breaking the rules. Left to my own devices I tried all sorts of things that seemed to be in the ‘not allowed’ or ‘not possible’ lists.
I even tried all the ways I could think of to get into an altered state of consciousness. My Guides kept bringing me more suggestions. And in the end I worked out my own set of rules. Steps I stick to so that I know I will be ok. Yet I am also aware that my Guides keep me breaking new ground too. They want to help me step even further out of my comfort zone. That also means taking a look at my internal rules. The things I have set in place that might actually end up being limitations. Rather than enablers. I’m open to looking at my own rules. And I am prepared to break them if necessary. Because discovering a new ability is always at the end of what I already know. In the borderland between what I know I can do.
And what I doubt I can do. I know that is the best reason for bending or breaking my rules. Being able to try things. To experience many prototypes. So that I can learn what works best for me. With the aim of helping other people learn what works best for them. Because the rules one person worked out may never work for another person. Here’s to finding and breaking more mediumship rules!
