We’re doomed. We’re lost. We’re done!


 “I’m suggesting to you that the biggest problems on this planet today can only be approached from the field of spirit. And that is why the world is in the mess it’s in today. And why most people are in the mess they’re in today. Why most people are drug or alcohol addicted. 

“I don’t know anybody who’s not taking a drug of some kind because they can’t deal with reality. Because what they think is reality is actually only an illusion. This world that we live in, dear, this physical world we live in is an illusion. 

“This is not reality. The true nature of reality is emptiness. There’s no there, there. We are all constructs. Everything you see and encounter is a construct which means there was a time where it didn’t exist, there is a time where it will no longer exist so therefore it can’t be said to truly exist. 

“The only thing that’s real or permanent about you is that which science says doesn’t exist and that’s your spirit. And that is why this world is fucked up! 

“We live in a world of illusion and that which is real we call the illusion. And that is the reason why we are in the mess we are in. And if we don’t change our field of vision, we’ll never get it. We’re doomed. We’re lost. We’re done!” -Murray Silver

Try not to die the wrong way, please.


When I moved to Savannah in March 2009, I had never visited. I could tell from pictures I found online that Savannah is where I needed to live and that SCAD was the college I needed to attend. I knew this in my heart, but when people asked, I couldn’t verbally justify my reasoning.

I instantly felt more at home here in Savannah than I ever felt anywhere else in my entire life. My spirit guided me here. Whether you believe it or not, my spirit knew I had to be here. Now that I’m beginning to get in touch with my spirit, I’m starting to figure out why.

Up until recently, I didn’t know the difference between a spirit and a ghost. I used the term interchangeably. But the two words are not the same.

As I said in my last post, we are all born with spirits. It is what guides us to do things. When a person dies the right way, their spirit will remain on Earth but in the spirit dimension. When a person dies the wrong way, then their spirit takes the form of a ghost. A ghost will appear as it did in the life it just died from, and is stuck in time and place looking for answers.

Right ways to die:

  • Natural causes
  • The sense of a fulfilled life

Wrong ways to die:

  • Suicide
  • Murder
  • War
  • Freak accident

 

Here’s a tip: never commit suicide (obviously). Most people do it because they think it will solve the problems of their miserable lives. Wrong! Your ghost will completely forget about why you killed yourself in the first place, and you’ll forever be trying to figure it out.

Om Mani Padme Hum


I want to know how to channel my past life from Savannah in the 1700s. I want to learn about this woman—where she lived, who she married, what she looked like, what she wrote. I want my spirit to recognize her if I find her.

Murray said that meditating will clear my mind and help me become more in tune with my spirit. He also said that clearing my mind will rest it more than a full night’s sleep.

So the other day, I began meditating.

Om mani padme hum. It means hail the jewel in the lotus. Focus. Sit comfortably. Center your vision on an object close by and just above eye level. A flower, a photograph, Buddha. Don’t think about emptiness. Just let thoughts go. Let noises in one ear and out the other. Repeat the mantra aloud. Repeat the mantra in your head. Find peace.

This morning I woke up at 5:57 a.m., and I was wide awake. I should probably leave out that Tony was too tired which is why I decided to meditate. But he was too tired which is why I decided to meditate.

I lay in bed with my eyes closed. Om mani padme hum. After about four minutes, my mind felt completely clear. I felt peaceful. I must have drifted off because when my alarm woke me up at 6:30 a.m., I jumped out of bed—ready to go and alert for the whole day!

That’s how spirit works


So I didn’t go on a ghost hunt with Murray last night. I suppose that was for the best seeing as how I spent five hours starting and finishing a project that is due on Tuesday. Murray would say that’s how spirit works. I should have been doing homework instead of searching for ghosts.

I’m trying to figure out what I believe to be true and what I believe to be false. I believe that we all have spirits. I also believe that our spirit never dies, just our body. I believe that we are able to communicate with the spirits in other dimensions. And I believe that our spirits are reincarnated multiple times.

What I don’t yet understand is that if the spirit is constantly reincarnated, then how can we continue to communicate with it?  

Shirley Janney told me that my grandmother—my mum’s mother who died about 35 years ago—was standing next to me in Shirley’s office. She told me things about my grandmother that, never having met the woman, I couldn’t confirm to be fact or fiction. But when I told my mum, she said those things were true.

Among several other things, Shirley also told me that in a past life I lived in Savannah during the 1700s. She and Murray both told me that I need to learn how to channel this past life and write about it.

My first step will be to go to the Savannah Historical Society and look for letters written by a female in the 18th Century. Shirley has helped Murray connect with one of his past lives and Murray said his spirit knew right away—Shirley was just a confirmation. He said I’ll know the woman I was in my past life if I’m lucky enough to find her.

Changes


Lately, I haven’t:

  • Posted a blog. It’s been nearly a week since my last entry.
  • Been able to remember my dreams. I’ve been so busy, I just don’t care anymore.
  • Been able to focus on school.

 

Lately, I have:

  • Made friends with a best selling author who also happens to know a butt-load of famous people.

  

  • Been in contact with spirit.
  • Met one of the world’s best psychics.
  • Found out I lived in countryside-Savannah in the 18th Century in a big Victorian house with a large front porch, my husband—whom I had nine children with—made good money and traveled often, I was a writer and a poet and I often spent a lot of time on the front porch writing my husband letters
  • Found out that Tony and I were together in past life.
  • Spoke with my grandmother who died fifteen years before I was born.
  • Seen dozens of photographs of ghosts and spirits.

 

My blog is going to change topics. It needs to change topics. My dreams are longer the most important thing to help me find myself.

Within the next few days I will revamp my blog and it will focus on my journey to enlightenment. Everything happens for a reason, and I’m going to find out that reason. The body is the vehicle for spirit. This blog will be your vehicle to mine.

          

After I post this entry, I’m going to call my new friend, Murray Silver. I’m supposed to be going on a ghost hunt tonight with him and two others.
