In“Chasing the Dance of Life” I tell about divine moments that have radically shaped my life. But I don’t share the practices and technologies I found to deal with staying open to the Great Big Beautiful Weird.
Your moments? I’d love to hear how you work with voices, visions, inescapable “knowings” as you attempt to live sanely with family and community?
How do you tell the difference between a crazy-making voice and a divine one? (Clue: God’s voices don’t generally agitate for fear or violence.)
If you’ve turned off the “hearing voices” channel why not call that body wisdom since they don’t teach “Listening to Voices 101” in Sunday School, Temple or PE?
I am happy I’ve learned to keep my mind open, question external voices, AND cultivate a child’s ability to hear, see, and sense imaginal realities. My life is extraordinarily rich as a result. I believe it is possible to develop our abilities to relate to a multidimensional, mystical world without being on drugs, losing it, or going totally airy fairy. Do you?
The Three Directives:
One day driving down the freeway, I heard a clear, neutral voice say, “These are your three directives: Efficiency of energy. Clarity of vision. Courage to love.” They came in that order. Nothing more. Nothing else. I wasn’t asking for help or praying. The voice came out of the blue as if my higher power turned a corner, caught a glimpse of me and decided to shoot me a text. Fortunately, my receiver was in the on position.
Ever since those three directives have kept me busy. In coming months I’ll begin sharing mystic tech tools for:
Gifted and Sensitive Bodies: Developing efficiency of energy as you pace yourself between ecstasy, depression, and the “normal” demands of daily life. This course includes the Focused Energy Movement Indicator test (FEBI) and a readout of your energetic style based on four movement types.
Courage to love (when you don’t): How to use Kinesthetic Intelligence in a Crazy, Suffering World. Learn to identify where your five movements of healthy interaction, how to drop a connection, find a new way to connect, and move on. Bonus: Never underestimate the body’s need for reassurance.
Flying on Purpose: Use the wisdom of your body to clarify, navigate, and accelerate your life purpose. Listen for a potent purpose to feel more like the poetry hidden in a name than a mission statement. Learn to differentiate between gifts, calls and purpose and how each affects choices, energy, and path.
Word of preparatory caution: Clarity of vision, once revealed, is tough to forget. You cannot go back. Be prepared for it’s opposite to show up. Get ready for the world to support and organize for your secret mission to manifest. Sometimes this can happen FAST! Too fast! So before you get up on that purpose horse–check your Security! What holds you upright when the ride gets bumpy? Do you have enough community support, the right practices, and divine grounding? No magic pills, gurus, mystery moments, or surgical interventions will indefinitely hook us up to the divine. In addition, it is not advisable to enter altered states without preparing one’s bodyspirit. Readiness includes consistent trustworthy community relationships, the right tools and practices, and the best help I can find outside of myself.
I look forward to sharing this journey. Leave a comment in the box about a mystical moment or tool you use and I’ll send a free gift: The Crazy Mystics Code of Ethics. Yes, Marge, there are rules for mystics.
