The definition of imagination is the ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful, how many times when faced with a problem in life or at work, we have been asked to use our imagination, or imagination has been derided as the useless pursuit of the day dreamer, imagination only seems to be important when necessary, but I say to you imagination is a very powerful tool for wellbeing and self improvement and spiritual connection, if used properly in our spiritual physical and material lives, individually and collectively we are the creation of what we know as God, a super creative intelligence that has created all things, each and everyone of us has the God given power of creation within us, we are the physical expression of God in human form, as all life on earth is the expression of the mind of God.
Science to this day as far as I know cannot find which part of the brain the mind lives, my spirit guides tell me the mind is the spirit level an energy of the physical human brain, and the conduit for two way communication and interaction between us the universe of God angels and spirit, imagination is the language that facilitates communication between us the universe of God angels and spirit, I was forever the daydreamer, thinking my daydreams were just hopes and fantasies for the future, it was not until I started spiritual development in 1978, I was taught by Berenice Watts that imagination is a tool used for communication with spirit, I have never forgotten her words “you cannot have imagination without an image”, she explained that the creation of an image within the mind, is thought and emotion combined.
As Tesla once said if we wish to understand the universe, we should think in terms of frequency and vibration, all things have their own unique vibration and frequency depending on what we are thinking and the emotion powering the thought, creates the vibrational frequency of the created image, to manifest within the minds eye, imagination happens when we allow our emotion powered thought to run free within our mind, as we are aware that spirit are energy on many levels of consciousness and vibrational frequency, spirit can channel thought and emotion creating images, within our minds eye using our imagination, my first experience of focussing my mental images to communicate with spirit, was my first meditation in Berenice’s spiritual development circle.
We were asked to imagine we are a bird on a cliff top looking out to sea, on a bright sunny day, on the horizon there is a rainbow we were asked to fly out to the rainbow, I imagined myself as a scruffy little bird, I flew out to the rainbow flying through the colours of the rainbow, sensing their beautiful energies I met with Jesus, who welcomed me to this state of consciousness, Jesus said to me ” I am pleased you are here, grow and serve become the light” me as a little scruffy bird sitting at Jesus feet, I was suprised that Jesus would even bother with me, but I felt so blessed to have had my meeting with Jesus, Berenice called us back into the room, where in turn we gave what we experienced in this wonderful meditation, Berenice gave us her interpretation of the symbols we observed and felt, and this was my first true connection with spirit, using meditation as a tool for connection with spirit, for what is meditation it is simply focussed imagination.
Throughout my spiritual development in Berenice Watts circle, imagination was the tool we used to connect with spirit, by creating an image within our minds eye, or by allowing spirit to connect with us by placing an image within our minds eye, the images could be symbolic to convey a situation or the emotional state of someone on their life path, or images of Angels Spirit Guides and loved Ones within our minds eye, also sending us memories and messages they wish to share with us, it is also the vibration ( emotion ) that comes with the image, that allows us to interpret symbols given to us by spirit communicators, colours also have their own meaning and vibrational frequency in symbols, many discard colour when interpreting symbols, but by attuning ourselves to the vibration ( emotion ) of the colour, we can give a better and deeper interpretation of the image, also when we perceive images of Angels and Spirit, we should attune ourselves to the vibrational ( emotional ) frequency of the image, in doing so we are allowing Angels and Spirit to communicate with us, to give the message they want us to receive, Angels and spirit communicate mainly in thought and emotion, it is by connection through the energy of our minds, spirit use thought and emotion to create images to communicate with us, imagination comes in when we converse with Angels and Spirit.
Imagination by creating an image within our minds eye, has many applications in spiritual communication and spiritual service, our thought and emotion created images are energy and as I understand it, all things Angels and Spirit are energy on many levels of vibrational frequency of God, by creating images for spiritual communication and service we are conversing with the mind of God, to create upliftment through spiritual service, Berenice taught how to channel energy by using the power of our imagination, we stood in a circle holding hands we had to imagine our minds eye, the left half being a brilliant white colour, the right half of our mind’s eye being a sapphire blue, we were asked to visualise the white half of our mind’s eye travelling from our mind’s eye, to our neck should arm into the palm of our hands, and visualise it going to the person on our left, we had to energise the colour white with our love, we did the same with the sapphire blue to our right, it was amazing how the colour flowed around our circle, energised by our love making us sway with it’s flow, as I have already discussed colour has its own vibrational ( emotional ) frequency, the general meaning of white is purity cleansing unconditional love, Blue is healing and we could feel the difference in vibrational frequency. as the colour flowed through and around us.
I used Berenice’s teaching of channeling energy for absent healing, by which we channel healing energy to loved one’s who are sick and suffering, in a wider context we can send absent healing all over the world, for all who are suffering in mind body and spirit, or through mans inhumanity to man throughout the world, and mother earth and all species of life on mother earth, by creating the images of the healing colours within our minds eye energising them with our love to our loved ones or wherever we want to focus healing energy to, we must also visualise the focus of our healing within our minds eye, imagine our loved ones, countries, mother earth, the animal kingdom, within our minds eye being immersed in healing colours energised with our love, healing guides in Spirit can also connect with our absent healing, use the vibrational frequency of our loving healing colours and images. to transmit healing energy from the spirit world to the focus of our loving healing energies.
By using the power of imagination to channel and send absent healing, I unwittingly stumbled upon and discovered astral projection, which to me is projecting yourself through the power of your mind and imagination, to another location and you can see and sense what is going on in that location, I had a friend at Slough Spiritualist Church named Sue, she had alot of back pain and at times she would not be able to move with her back pain, every friday night I would send Sue absent healing, I would visualise her within my minds eye, and transmit loving healing energy colours to her via power of my imagination, whilst I was focussing on sending Sue absent healing, I could see an image of a bedroom in my minds eye I was standing to the right of the bed, at the end of the bed was a brass victorian bed frame, with a brown dressing gown draped over it opposite the bed agaainst the wall, was a dressing table with an oval mirror, with a wardrobe to it’s left and a bedroom door to the dressing tables right, everytime I sent Sue absent healing I would see the image of the bedroom within my minds eye.
This went on for a few weeks and I could not work out why I was seeing this bedroom, one night myself and Sue were chatting at Slough Spiritualist Church, she asked me if I sent my absent healing at 10 pm on a Friday night, slightly amazed I said yes I send absent healing the same time every Friday night, she asked me if I saw anything whilst sending absent healing, I told her of the bedroom I could see within my minds eye, whilst sending her absent healing Sue told me I had just described her bedroom in detail, and that she could see my face floating above the right side of her bed, we were both amazed this was happening through absent healing, I asked her if it was bothering her I would stop, and she replied no as her back had recently started to feel much better and a lot less painful, I asked my spiritual teacher Berenice how this could happen, she told me it was astral projection the power of the mental images of healing colours, and transmitting them to Sue via the power of love of and my mind and imagination, had created a link to Sue in her bedroom, that is why I could see her bedroom and she could see my face, people who practice remote viewing use the power of imagination by creating the image of themselves in the place they wish to visit within their minds eye, and they are able to bring back information if what is happening in that place and time.
Everything within the known and unknown universe of God is energy, we are the reflection of God in his image the bible tells us, or perhaps we are the image of God in our collective vibrational frequency in creation, as is all life in it’s own vibrational frequency, I know the power of thought is the most powerful vibrational frequency within the universe, I spoke earlier of the mind of God, the energy of all knowledge and creation, we have been bestowed with the power of thought, to be able to communicate with God, Angels, and Spirit, and all things but to mainly create, the best possible world we can for ourselves and all around us, and we can do this with the power of imagination, I use the word power a lot but we must remember power is a raw product, that can be used for anything we must infuse the power of our thoughts with love for the greater good for ourselves and all, our thoughts and imagination can be used in any area of our lives, for the creation of the greater good.

Silently in majestic beauty you stand amidst
Our intrusion your beautiful truth for all to see
Mother earth energy circulating through you
Reaching out to the sky back to earth
Enfolding me in a loving warmth
Sunshine through your leaves
The wind blows you speak to me
Of the harmonious balance in all things
Everything is as it is meant to be
The emotional kaleidoscope of mind
Disturbs the harmony of life
We must be still to appreciate the balance of life
Accepting the storms come and go
swaying with the breeze embracing the flow
Of energy all around us all the time
Your peaceful serenity is my teacher
Teaching me peace of mind wise old willow tree

Meditation my escape from the illusion of mortal emotion
Floating in purple my preferred state of mind
Healing my mind and body in balance with my soul
The eternal radiance of compassion liberating me
From ego and doubt my heart set free to love
Within this universal consciousness of unconditional love
Floating in purple the serenity of eternity permeates my truth
Connected in being to the mind of creation within this eternal moment
Human desire and frailty in heart and mind disappear
I am invisible and complete as one within divine eternity
Stephen Rowlands 30/04/20
I am an expression of a love far greater than myself and human existence
My spirit expressed by love to this life here in physical form to experience
All emotion human existence has to offer a physical material trial
By fire for the soul cleansing away my darkness for the eternal journey
To become a love I cannot imagine in limited material mind
Open all encompassing unconditional my awakening of spiritual awareness
Becoming as one with a love far greater than myself
60 physical years my consciousness has existed here on the earth plane
Seeking the truth questioning my being asking where do I belong
Self illusion faded away by a need to be truly myself the answer became clear
As I opened my heart to the truth of a love far greater than myself within
May my open heart never close to divine love eternal serene and still
Stephen Rowlands 18/04/20
Your day is new a page in your life
Before your feet hit the floor
You have the power to
Choose acceptance over dread
Understanding over confusion
Calm over anger
Creation over inertia
Opportunity over defeat
Looking forward over regret
Happiness over sadness
Love of life over bitterness
Your new day is your creation
Life is a state of mind
Positive balances negative in this life
Have a good day

My heart weeps for you in your sadness
My love cannot take away your pain
All I can do is love you
Till the dark clouds of grief float away
And the sun shines within your heart
Holding you close in my love
The healing balm of my love will comfort you
Death is as certain as life
Grief is the sorrow of love
Time is our unkind master as life ticks away
Your heart must say farewell to your beloved
And I will love you till the sun shines again
Death is a truth of life everyone dies
The hardest fact of life is that life goes on
Our hearts in sorrow never seem to heal
Whether our beloved abandon us or pass away
Life moves forward in a constant rhythm
It is very easy for friends to say
Your beloved is in a better place
Let go just move forward live your life
Our grief deep within stands us still
Heart and mind craving the presence
Of our beloved far away
Life is a journey in this world and beyond
We must weep for our loved ones passed away
And bid a fond farewell with love
To our beloved who journey far away
Love has no boundaries in time and space
For love is eternal and cannot pass away
Let us give our love and blessing safe journey
To our beloved who journey far away

Finding solace in peace and quiet away from burden and noise
I sit still as the candle flame my heart opens in service
Colours of lovelight shining outward from my heart
Love fills my awareness spirit are present my senses awaken
A connection of love and unity a bond between two worlds present and eternal
Within my minds eye I see an angel serene in blue and white light
She comes close to me face to face within her deep beautiful eyes
A wisdom Of time and space universal mind and creation
My limited earthly perception cannot comprehend
The angel opens my awareness to universal mind
Connecting me with all who wish to speak in loves service
Giving the teachings of universal love and eternal life
Stephen Rowlands 11/03/20
Little acts of kindness are gifts from the heart
To friend’s and foes patience is our guide
No matter the hurt and pain we give and receive
Little acts of kindness will be our epitaph
A memorial of how we lived and loved
Our anger will not be remembered
By those who’s feelings we hurt
Our little acts of kindness will live
Within the hearts and mind’s
Of friends and foes for evermore
Stephen Rowlands 03/03/20
I honour my light my truth and guide
My healer when regret overcomes me
Lessons to learn let me not forget my light
My light protects me against all who persecute me
When all is dark within and around me
Darkness cannot extinguish the light of my being
My light alive and eternal within and without
Created by and born in infinite love
Love is the light the true nature of my existence
I honour spirit thankful for my purpose of service
I honour all who are aware within light
We are one in light and truth
Stephen Rowlands 23/02/20
My heart open and aware hears the voices of spirit
Voices speaking of love and reassurance to
Beloved ones on earth in grief and sorrow
It is my calling to be a voice for the beloved in spirit
To tell the truth of eternal life and death will not us part
My vocation to be a connection of love for spirit
To speak to the beloved ones they left behind
To heal the pain of death’s parting
In life and eternity
Stephen Rowlands 05/02/20
I love my life
No trouble and strife
I love my wife
Guided through my heart
Abundance of love
Flowing through my days
Trouble and strife
Love and purpose in spirit
My life has begun
I welcome my old friend silence
To calm the noise of my mind
A welcome visitor to give me respite
From all that troubles me
Ego bows in humility to silence
Awakening the sentience of heart
Compassion for my persecutor
is my lesson
Healing and calming my mental storm
Silence bids me to become silent
Within this moment of clarity
All that matters is silence
As in all moments
Peace is a natural state of being
Stephen Rowlands 16/01/20
I seek you neath the half moon
My spirit fades without your gentle feeling
Eternity in afterlife will judge our purpose
The sun will rise and I will leave
My love for you neath the half moon.
Looking up to the morning blue
Your presence is gone
Thankful for the sacred gift of life
My purpose becomes clear
Now I can seek out my life and truth
Without the illusion of your love
Inner creation is mine to command
The future beckons me to become.

I have written many times about my new beginnings starting Boxing Day 2010, and now as we are about to begin a new decade, I reflect on the journey of the past nine years, and look forward to the new beginnings and all life has to offer in 2020, the past nine years I feel have been preparing me for 2020, as I feel guided to say every year is a preparation for the next, I have learned that life on the earth plane, is the evolution or devolution of self, by how we allow external influences to effect our internal selves, the art of self evolution is to know our internal truth and to live and grow through our truth, when we allow ourselves to devolve, is when we allow ourselves to be shaped by our external world.
With this in mind I feel to say that our external world can enhance our inner truth, we learn and grow from our experiences in our external world, but we must learn to remain true to our inner truth, keeping the lessons to enhance our inner truth, and discarding the bad memories to maintain the health of our inner truth and selves, this is where I feel detachment plays it’s part in emotional health, 2019 was a fantastic year for me filled with love, blessings, and realisations.
In 2019 I began my quest to be more in service to spirit, I have gained bookings from 5 new churches, the highlights of my spiritual service is working with, the lovely Ashley Mills and creating Gemini Transfiguration, and demonstrating Transfiguration/Trance at, Reading, Winchester, and Eastleigh churches, also serving spirit on platform at Reading, Winchester, Eastleigh, Wokingham, also it was the first time my lovely medium friend Jane Lorraine Goodman, had seen me demonstrate mediumship at Wokingham, a box I enjoyed ticking, I have also changed my focus in spirit communication, I used to bring a lot of messages through from spirit guides, and some loved ones in this age of the need for evidence, I have turned my focus to bringing messages through from loved ones, with some amazing and heart touching results, have done some home Transfiguration/Trance sits much to my suprise my Stevie’s GasBag FB live discussion groups have been a success, and I will continue to do them.
Also in 2019 myself and Veronica had a amazing first holiday together in Venice, and Veronica made me the most honoured man in the universe, by becoming my wife 07/09/19 at Winchester Registry Office, with my best friend the lovely Marina Rawlings being my best man, myself and Veronica had a lovely honeymoon on the Isle of Corfu, I am so very grateful for the blessings of 2019 and thankful for the people who have supported me throughout 2019.
2020 is a master year whereby we can work towards and manifest our best life, and I hope to be more of service to spirit, and I will work towards serving more churches and centres, the refreshing thing is Churches are starting to recommend me again, as I said life is a state of evolution of the self, in 2010 I had virtually dried up and was in a real state of inertia, over the past nine years I have been living, speaking, growing, and learning my truth through an open heart to where I am today, now as 2020 approaches I am semi retired to have more time to serve spirit, I am going to complete my book, build my website, be a channel for spiritual healing, and private readings, serve churches and centres, share my poetry/writing to the world, and live love and grow with my beautiful wife Veronica.
2019 in Highlights And New Beginnings 2020
Light Love Blessings And Abundance For All In 2020

Stop the world my beloved has died
I want the world to take time to mourn
Abandoned in this moment
As the new day marches on in time
I stand here in solitary sorrow
Physical death is final and unforgiving
I will never see you again in this life
Stop the world give me time
My beloved’s presence is no more
Just memories of once was
To keep my beloved alive in heart and mind
I wish to tell you of my beloved
The blessing he was to me and family
Stop the world and listen
My beloved has died
Stephen Rowlands 22/12/19
When darkness befalls me
Love teaches me to be light
When I feel unloved
Love teaches me to love
When I feel persecuted
Love teaches me to live my truth
When I am hurt
Love teaches me to speak my truth
When I feel all is gone
Love teaches me to open my heart
Love is my guide
In this mortal life
Love teaches me
The truth of my eternal soul
Inspired by Spirit
Stephen Rowlands 26/11/19
Some people say I am lazy
Some people call me crazy
Some fear some hold me dear
After All I Am Me
He has cut his hair
He does not care
He would not dare
After All I Am Me
He has put on weight
He is always late
He has lost weight
After All I Am Me
He thinks to much
He drinks to much
After All I Am Me
I know who I am now
It is all in the past
Today you still cannot grasp
That I am becoming me
Look at yourselves
And as you delve
You will find the God
Who knows me
Who are you.
Stephen Rowlands 19/11/19
My first Poem I wrote back in 1990 revamped
You came to me in serene beauty that graced my eyes, my mind in awe of this profound reality, you are the one who will walk beside me in this dream of life, my love for you has become a supernova, please accept my love for its simplicity and power, my love for you can heal all wounds from love denied.
Stephen Rowlands 01/11/19
The Journey of my life is my lesson, I have never failed in my life, I am learning the truth of my soul, failure teaches us what we are not, gently guiding us to our innermost truth.
Stephen Rowlands 04/09/19
The certainty of earth life is physical death, all people’s on earth know of this one truth yet deny it, death will come for us all, ignorance of death is the denial of lifes one truth, the knowledge of death should unite us all in life, as all are equal in death, all are joined as brothers and sisters in death, in this one truth we should all be brothers and sisters in life, as we walk the pathway towards physical death, be loving and kind have compassion in pain and sorrow be the samaritan, for all our brothers and sisters treasure our moments in time, with our brothers and sisters, for we never know when journeys end and death begins.

In Memory of Sandra Poole 06/02/67 – 20/04/19
Vibrant waves of love flow from the centre of creation speaking the truth of love, to open hearts and minds calling you to act with love, our mission in spirit, is to spread the truth of love to all who seek, love is powerless without thought and deed for the greater good, the human race is biologically programmed to follow the physical law of self, for its own survival other than the law of spirit and life, all life is divine in essence, brothers and sisters of the human race come together as the human family, create the divine connection of oneness to each other and all life.
Inspiration from Jerome Franciscan Monk and spirit guide 17/04/19
Christmas is a time when memories of Christmas past, come to the forefront of the mind, Christmas 2010 was to be a Christmas Day of great change for me, although I felt it was my worst time, it was actually the best time of my life, although my life was in tatters, hopes and dreams crushed I felt so abandoned, as if washed up on a sea shore my ship of life wrecked, cast out and alone a mere image of what I once was, I have written much of this time, but as I was looking through my facebook memories, my status for 27/12/10 was “A new journey begins letting go of the past, and embracing a new life”.
All roads lead to somewhere in this life, dependant on the pathway we choose to walk, I have realised that spirit can see the bigger picture of our lives, especially when our faces are in the dirt, and we feel broken and lost, it is most important to be true to ourselves, have faith in ourselves as the true path we wish to walk, will open up to us, the last 8 years have been a amazing time of development, to become we must first grow, I grew by unloading all my mental and emotional crap, becoming at peace with myself yes loving myself, walking a spiritual pathway as a healer and medium, all the progress I have made in life, has taken 8 years we live in a instant world, but inner development to effect progession in our outer world takes time, small steps are required to be taken, by those who seek to develop and progress, be prepared for a journey of soul searching and realisation, a journey of healing and enlightenment, not instant gratification and results, feeling very pleased with myself in 2016, my head and heart were in the best place they had been in years, but I had a question that needed to be answered, would I ever find a lady to truly love, to spend the rest of my days with, I did wonder if I was meant to walk my life pathway alone, but decided to try one last time.
I joined Match.Com yes a dating site you may scoff, but the ladies were not exactly kicking my front door down to date me, I had been on the dating site for almost a year, and was about to delete my account, most of the ladies I spoke to had more baggage than Heathrow, wanted someone a lot wealthier than myself, or turned there nose up at me because of my spiritualism, I was also losing weight due to my diet, and posting images of my slimmer self to the dating site, interest did pick up a bit, but as I said the interest was from all the wrong ladies, one night in June 17 I decided to end my time with Match.Com, when I logged in I noticed I had a wink from a lady, the lady was in fact my Veronica after a couple of weeks texting and chatting, we agreed to meet 13/07/17, I am very empathic and I immediately sensed from Veronica, the warmth and beauty of her heart, this is the girl I am looking for I thought, we clicked and started dating each other, although I lived in Slough and she in Winchester, the distance did not matter, as I know now we were truly falling in love, and we would take it in turns to visit each other when we were not working.
My Veronica August 2017
But living apart and distance did eventually become a problem, as it was becoming harder and harder to leave each other, when our visits came to an end, we had talked of moving in together, I used to say to Veronica it is a nice thought, but it is very scary in practice, and I did not want another life disaster on my hands, if it all went wrong, also giving up my flat in Slough would be a real wrench for me, as I loved my flat it was a lifeboat for me, to heal and rebuild my life, but as our feelings for each other grew. and absence from each other got harder and harder, we finally decided to make a home together, after a lot of talk about whom was moving in with who, myself and Veronica decided that I would move to Hampshire with her, I spoke to my mother and got her blessing, my mother said to me “it would be good for me to get out of the rat race, and into the country” on 08/06/18 I moved to Winchester to live with Veronica, now looking back today 01/01/19, it is the best move I ever made, a real leap of faith but I have landed safely on my feet, myself and Veronica plan to marry in September 19, since moving to Winchester we also use our home as a spiritual centre, I have named Spirit Divine for healing, readings, workshops, and demonstrations of trance, also I am serving new churches, some that I used to serve back in the day, I feel so very blessed today and so glad I took the small steps, inwardly and outwardly to where I am today, although we cannot always see the bigger picture, small steps towards our goals are the answer enjoy the journey, 2018 was a master year, to take charge and put in place everything we want in life, and I feel I have mostly achieved that, and I am very happy to share this with you all.
Thank You For Reading

Walking above the rain clouds, my mind elevated to blue sky and sun, the rain falls as past sorrows, above all my sorrows I now see, the vanity of love selfish illusions of a soul to love, wanting someone to love blinded my minds eye to love, all I needed to do was be and grow, in heart and mind the search was not to find love, but to be love, enriching my soul and life.
Walking above the rain clouds, abundance of love in heart and mind, my love for you fills me in a wave of euphoria, cleansing all perception of future life with you, we are to be and become, two souls entwined within the destiny of love.

I have often spoken about prayer describing prayer as thought, as a lot of people are put off prayer, by the religious connotations of prayer, I find prayer to be a useful tool in my daily life, to help me focus on what I need to do, in a religious sense prayer is our communication with the divine, we pray and a religion created God answers our prayers or not within our own perception, creation in one way or another, interacts with us in lessons to help us achieve what we are praying for, spirit guides have often taught that thought is the most powerful energy in the universe, so thinking about it the energy of our thoughts in prayer, are a real interaction with the lifeforce and energy of creation, that religion calls God.
Our light within communicates and interacts with the source light of creation, through our hearts and minds, how many times have we become at peace after prayer, this is a indication of our light interacting with source light, as we receive thoughts from the source of creation, we can gain guidance from source light, and help us to change our lives for the better, the spiritual journey here on earth, is very much a inner journey to develop light within us, by the lessons we receive from source light, to guide us on our spiritual journey here on earth, I feel inspired to write about my life and prayer at this point in time, to give an example of how our inner light, interacts and communicates with source light and wisdom.
I have been working as a security officer for the past 28 years, in varying roles in that time I have been shot at stabbed with a needle kicked and punched, and suffered various injuries from these assaults, for the past 3 months I have been working as a retail security officer, deterring shoplifters from stealing goods from a well known food retailer, the scene has changed very much from when I was a store detective 12 years ago, it used to be very cat and mouse with shoplifters doing there best to avoid detection, for fear of prosecution, today the police will not respond to shoplifting as it is deemed low level crime, due to government cuts to police and lack of resources, now shoplifters are openly stealing and being violent, if store security or shop staff try to stop or apprehend them, as their is now little or no chance of them being prosecuted and sentenced, my role is becoming more staff protection than being a deterrent to shop thieves.
I must admit at 58 years old this concerns me, as I am not as physically fit, and cannot be as physically aggressive as I used to be, in deterring and arresting shoplifters, for the past couple of weeks I have been working in a store, where assaults on staff are very much on the increase, my role is to visit a different store in that chain everyday, but due to assaults at this store on staff by shoplifters, the store has asked for a greater security presence there, on 21/11/18 I arrived at the store and I did not know why, but I felt I should pray and ask for protection for myself and the store that day, at 18.04 hrs a male and female entered the store, who I knew to be shoplifters, he is about 6′ 5″ tall and powerfully built, and in his mid twenties early thirties, the female is tall and skinny with obvious signs of drug abuse, I walked quickly to the meat section, as I knew they were going to go for the high value steaks, the male walked around to the next section, where the lamb and gammon joints were, the female stood about 5′ away from me pretending to browse the ham and burgers, I stood in front of the steak to protect it.
About 20 seconds later the male appeared with his open carrier bag, he said to me “keep out of the way mate this is nothing to do with you” and started to put steaks in his carrier bag, I started to take the steaks from him, telling him they are not his steaks and to leave the store, some pushing and shoving between us ensued, I was pushed back into the chiller but bounced back at him, he kept saying to me “do not touch me” I replied leave the steaks alone, this went on for about 45 – 60 seconds, in the struggle some steaks fell on the floor, and I stood on them to protect them from theft, myself and the male just looked at each other, it was a silent and eerie split second, he could see I was not going to retreat, then he and the female left the store, a manager who had witnessed the incident asked me if I was ok, I dialled 101 and reported the incident to police, also reporting it as a assault on myself as I was pushed into the chiller, knowing the police would give this incident more attention.
23/11/18 a police officer came to the store, to take a statement from me reference the assault on me and the theft of steak from the store, and to seize cctv evidence, the police officer told me that the male I wrestled with, was a nasty piece of work and was involved in a vicious assault on another man, which the man will take several months to recover from, my prayer for protection that day came back into my mind, realising I could have been seriously injured that day or worse, in that eerie split second in the incident, I believe spirit spoke to the male and he made the decision not to harm me and walk away, over giving me a good hiding to allow him to steal the steaks, I am so thankful and grateful to creation angels and spirit guides, for answering my prayer protecting me that day, and this is also my example of the power of prayer, and how our interaction through prayer with the source of creation works.

All things everything and everyone, is a reflection of soul source, the energy, light, being of creation, and intelligence the masses know as God, everything and everyone is connected by the soul source, as it is the divine plan to bring everything and everyone, into one ness with soul source, it is very important for those who follow a spiritual pathway, to have a inner one ness and connection with their own higher self, creating one ness with our soul source, as collectively the human race must attain, and ascend to one ness with soul source, but why do we look outside of ourselves to religion, for connection with our higher self, when higher self is within heart and mind, why do we see soul source as a separate entity to ourselves, when we are connected to soul source via heart and mind, to simplify connection through our own being.
It matters not whether we believe in a God or soul source or not, we have a choice everyday, on how we want to live our life purpose, yes I believe each and everyone of us has a life purpose, surely the greatest purpose of all is to love, to love friends and family, to help and comfort the sick and dying, to always work towards the greatest and highest good for ourselves, fellow humans and our world, Alice Bailey wrote The Great Invocation, a prayer to help soul source ( God ) find full expression here on earth, as we the human race are a expression of soul source, I feel strongly that it is our duty and purpose, to manifest and maintain full expression of soul source here on earth, I think we have got it all very wrong over the centuries, expecting everything to come from soul source, when we are the physical embodiment of soul source, together we can create a world of harmony, balance, love, kindness, compassion, tolerance, here on earth our connection to soul source is our higher selves.
Religion has been preaching the wrong message, I believe through misunderstanding the message from soul source, and myself realising that back in time, the teachings from soul source and the masters, were perceived as magically supernatural, the evolving church taught us to worship soul source, as a supernatural being full of magical miracles, when the simple truth is soul source ( God ) is within and all around us, and that we are naturally connected to soul source on a vibrational level, it has been very wrong of religion to teach, that the only way to soul source is through religion, creating wealth and power for religion.
There are many teachers teaching the one truth, with varying aspects of the one truth, that have been guides for the human race over the centuries, this can be very confusing to the many who seek the truth, but are put off by organised religion, much has been written about the higher self and how to connect with it, in this blog I aim to share with you my spirit guided teaching, on how to connect with our higher selves and soul source, the connection I speak of is not easy as we all have our emotional, physical, and material needs, which at times can be very selfish, our need for the bigger house or car, to get ahead of others to gain status, no matter the cost, to be loved, our hurts, anger, jelousies, bitterness, greed all very selfish emotions,and this is where our spiritual development comes in to let go off all our self serving, thoughts emotions and deeds whether be physical emotional, material, spiritual for the higher self is selfless and to reach it we must be selfless to, our higher selves is our purest form and connection with soul source, our higher self, is the divine energies of unconditional love kindness and compassion, and we can reach our higher being through selflessness love kindness and compassion all are great teachers, especially when we feel the world is against us.
This is the true spiritual development we all need to develop and grow within, on a individual level to achieve the full expression of soul source here on earth, to end war famine greed our inhumanity to each other, and all life that we share mother earth with, it is a personal spiritual development, that religion cannot accommodate because the church is not selfless in love thought and action, we must love selflessly to serve the greatest and highest good of all things, the truth comes in simplicity, religion has complicated the simple truth by putting itself between the human race and soul source, as we navigate the journey to our higher selves and connection to soul source, we cannot force another to take our pathway, we can only hope that they see the benefit of our way of life, and choose the pathway to the truth for themselves, there is much more that could be written but I simply say to the reader develop and grow in selfless thoughts and actions, of love kindness and compassion for ourselves and all things, let the masters be our guides so be it.
