Spiritual Protection

Spiritual Protection

Spiritual protection is very important all of the time. If you look around the world at any given moment, you will see that this is true. It is also important to develop some type of spiritual protection practice that suits your soul if you are communicating with loved ones in spirit. This is so you are truly communicating only with those you wish to communicate with, not some other interfering spirit.

Just as we have the right to determine how and with whom we communicate in the physical world, we as humans have the right to communicate with only the people in spirit that we want to communicate with. You don’t have to communicate with anyone you don’t want to and you certainly don’t have to put up with unwanted or uninvited unseen guests, especially if they are disrespectful or malicious. You wouldn’t put up with that from people, and you don’t have to put up with it from people in spirit either.

This works the same way with loved ones in spirit. They too have the right to communicate only with the ones in the physical world that they want to communicate with. It also may be that someone in spirit might want to communicate, but they are unable to for some reason. Many spirits do find a way to communicate with a loved one on earth as you see in the afterlife communication literature.

Since my connection with Robin opened up, I have learned that I can communicate with a handful of other loved ones that I either knew, or have come to know since Robin’s passing. But, it’s only those I wish to communicate with. My spirit communication is limited to those I’m close with spiritually and synchronistically connected to. I have very firm boundaries, just like I do and need to have, with people in the physical world. I am not a medium in the sense of reading other people and determining what spirits are around them.

I invite the spirits I love to communicate with me in the ways we are accustomed to. I protect myself with prayers to God, asking God to protect me. I read the Psalms and Lord’s Prayer for protection also. As I mentioned in the about section, I chant and pray for protection using mantras from the Buddhist and Kundalini yoga traditions because I respect these traditions and I like to sing my prayers also. Just as I did, you will have to find what is most effective for you in terms of spiritual protection so you feel safe, good and protected.

Bulgarian philosopher Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov reminds us that we have the power to say no to spirits that are negative, the type that do not wait for an invitation. Here is an excellent excerpt from a website called Journey with Omraam:

“Many luminous spirits that have already left the earth are also eager to help human beings, but they cannot do so because there is no place fit for them to come to. Nothing has been got ready for them, so they have no right to come. You will certainly be astonished by this and say, ‘But I thought they had the power to do anything!’ Yes, they have every power, but they respect the law, and the law says that they have no right to enter somewhere by force. Well, surprising or not, that is how it is. The entities of the invisible world cannot do whatever they want, and if they go somewhere without permission they will be punished for it…

The great mages, who know these laws, guard the places they particularly want to keep safe by means of magic formulas or symbols, which prevent malicious spirits from breaking in. This is necessary, because if no obstacle is put in the way of the inferior spirits they break in and wander about and do all kinds of damage.

Unlike the spirits of light, the malicious spirits don’t wait for a specific invitation before entering; they have no great respect for these laws. They will refrain from entering a place only if they are expressly forbidden to do so by divine powers, because they know that if they disobeyed they would be pulverized.

But, if you don’t actually forbid them to come in, they will not hesitate to do so. And, after all, you cannot really blame them: if you let them do what they want, why should the lord punish them? Humans have all the powers they need to oppose the spirits of darkness and say no to them. So it is entirely up to you to keep them out and to invite luminous spirits to come in, instead, and help you build a strong and beautiful inner sanctuary.”

I have taken this great teacher’s advice and I do forbid them to come into my life, home or anywhere near me for that matter. I speak it out loud so there is no doubt or confusion as to what I mean.

My prayers have been very effective over the years and I feel very safe and protected since I learned about afterlife communication.

Since Robin is skilled at telekinesis, I have also stated clearly that he is the only loved one in spirit who has permission to move my belongings or create something. Otherwise, I won’t know who is doing what!

I thought it important that I address this issue of spiritual protection. I hope you find it valuable. If you do an internet search on this topic, you will find many ideas and suggestions from different authors and spiritual traditions on how to protect yourself spiritually. You are responsible for finding what works best for you in terms of your beliefs and spiritual/religious background.

I wish you great discoveries and experiences!

Famous Spirits? Not So Much Anymore.

Famous Spirits? Not So Much Anymore.

…You are taken in the net of my music, my love, and my nets of music are wide as the sky…

            ~Pablo Neruda, excerpt from In My Sky at Twilight

It is my understanding that in spirit, famous people are no longer famous. Unlike here on earth, we are all considered equal souls regardless of our earthly status and how much money we made. One of my favorite books about the afterlife, Life in the World Unseen (Kindle Version September 2013) by Anthony Borgia includes a chapter on famous people. The question of what happens to people in the spirit world, who were famous on Earth, is posed.

According to Borgia, spirits who were once famous on earth are treated like everybody else. No other spirits refer to another’s earthly status or fame and there is no embarrassing curiosity about who one was or what one did in life. A spirit who was a famous person may be recognized and respected for who he or she had been in their previous life, but they are more loved for what they are now in spirit. To expand on this, I offer this excerpt:

We have left our earthly importance behind us, and we do not refer to it except to show, by our own experiences, to others still incarnate, just what to avoid. We do not revive our memories for the purpose of self-glorification, or to impress our hearers. Indeed, they would not be in the least impressed, and we should only succeed in making fools of ourselves. We recognize the truth here, and our true worth is for all to see. It is spiritual worth, and that alone, that counts, irrespective of what we were upon the earth-plane.

Perspectives and view-points are completely altered when one comes into the spirit world. However mighty we were upon the earth-plane, it is spiritual worth only that takes us to our right place in the spirit world, and it is the deeds of our life, regardless of social position, that at our transition will assign to us our proper abode. Position is forgotten, but deeds and thoughts are the witnesses for or against us, and we become our own judges.

Borgia, Anthony. Life in the World Unseen (p. 117). Kindle Edition.

I am glad that no one is considered famous in the spirit life. I would not want a repeat of this earthly life in the spirit world, namely, earthly-based false superiority and inferiority, separation and division just because of a person’s status, wealth or fame, or a lack thereof.

How does Borgia describe a spirit like Robin Gibb specifically, given that he was a musical composer?

But how does this affect some well-known scientist, let us say, or a musical composer, or a painter? To us—and to themselves— they will be learners, and humble learners, too, in whatever branch of science or art their earthly lives led them. To you, still incarnate, they are famous names, and when we have occasion to refer to them in speaking to you we use those names by which they are familiar. Here, in the spirit world, they dislike to be referred to as masters or geniuses. Their names, however famous, mean nothing to them personally, and they sternly repudiate anything that even remotely approaches the hero worship that the earth world accords them. They are just one of ourselves, and as such they wish to be—and are—so treated.

Borgia, Anthony. Life in the World Unseen (p. 118). Kindle Edition.

It is through this lens that I see Robin and write about my experiences with him. In one interview I saw of Robin, (Who Do You Think You Are, Series 8, Episode 7, 2011) he described himself as being down to earth. He had a great sense of humor and was very kind to his fans. As a result, I expect he did not have too much trouble in adjusting to his new life in spirit as just one of ourselves.

I have provided two youtube videos where this chapter is being read by a kind soul. For the video The Unseen World 28, the chapter on famous people begins at 4:39 and continues on video 29.

Variation of Gibb on $20 Bill

Variation of Gibb on $20 Bill

It is absolutely amazing how our loved ones in spirit can communicate with us. Through the signs of Robin that I receive, I feel a divine hand of love guiding the everyday events of my life, working through the people I encounter. I don’t know how they do it, but when a loved one in spirit wants to get a message to you, they will do it. Their name can even show up on your money to remind you of them.

On July 31, 2014, I went shopping at a grocery store I shop at on a regular basis. As per usual, I brought my groceries to the cashier who rang up my selections. I paid and she gave me some change back.

To my great surprise, there was a name written on the $20 bill I received. It was Gibbons. I have included photos here for you to see it written in red ink. To protect the privacy of the person, I have blacked out the first name. But you can clearly see the initial K. and then the surname, Gibbons.

Please scroll down to see the images.

I rarely use cash and when I do, it’s even rarer for me to see a name written on a bill. What are the chances that I would receive this money with a variation of Robin’s last name on it? Very slim I think, and the fact that I did get that bill, and not the person before me or after me in line, is the very essence of afterlife communication: the impeccable timing of it. It deeply touched my heart to receive this spiritual gift. I have never spent this and keep it on Robin’s altar to this day as symbol of his presence with me.

I would like to mention that loved ones in spirit will give you that which will direct your attention towards them. It may not be an exact match with their name or whatever the sign is, but it will be so close that to ignore it or dismiss it because it’s not exact is being too hard on our loved ones. It’s important to be flexible. If you see their name or something close to it, it’s probably them. For example, in 2013, I saw a car with a license plate “POPPY” on it. That reminded me of Robin right away. A few weeks later, I saw another license plate, this time with “POPPI.” I’m not going to complain if it’s spelled a little differently! It still reminds me of our connection with poppies.

It was very touching to me that the day I received this bill was Robin’s wedding anniversary date as well.

I hope you enjoyed this story demonstrating another unique way a loved one’s presence can manifest!
