So, Where Do We Find the Spirits? by Jan Engels-Smith
Spirits are everywhere.
There are many different kinds of spirits, and they can take various forms. We can’t know who they all are, but there are certain beings that we want to work with in this study. Can you see them? No, because you see less than 1%. But it is still real. The bridge people have to cross in this work is created by the question, is it real?
Experience will help you cross this bridge to the side that says, yes, it is real. Things will start happening in your life to help show you that it is undoubtedly real. Your own personal journey through this work will help clarify that for you. I can’t tell you and have you automatically believe me. But if you follow these ways, you will definitely see it to be true.
Remembering that we “see” less than 1%…
If you can open your heart to the possibility of that realness, of their realness, just the intention of opening your heart to that capacity, that possibility, will help it manifest and unfold in your life. If you have the intention of “prove it,” that creates a very small window for them to work. You will always be trying to discount it and say, prove it again! They prove it and they show you, and you ask for another sign, and another sign, and forget in between about the miraculous things that are happening.
When we work with the spirits, we are getting a bigger picture than what we can understand on our own, in this realm. I asked the Spirits once, Why do we work with you? They said, “You may know where you are going, and may even be able to see the path, but we travel above the tree line and can see where the path goes.” They can direct you to places, decisions, and outcomes that you might not have access to yourself. You can journey to the future, and you can journey to the past and change what happened.
There is nothing outside the realm of possibility when you journey.
The Spirits also follow a universal law. Human beings have free will, or what is referred to as sacred choice. We are not a puppet of the universe; in fact, you are quite the opposite. You are a creator of the universe. If you don’t choose to employ or activate your spirit connection, it doesn’t happen; it is not forced upon you. I do believe that there is grace. I think that grace falls into people’s lives when they are in a very dangerous or difficult situation, and things just suddenly, miraculously change.
When you are trying to engage the spirit realm, or the non-physical beings, you begin with an intention. Then, they are right there.
We use different spirit helpers to do different things. Who are some of these spirit helpers and how do I learn how to dialogue and interact with them in a friendly, easy way? You can get guidance, be informed, and make a decision. You can ask anything you want and get information about it.
The shamanic journey is filled with mystery, and despite its ancient history, is little understood in Western culture.
The journey is one of the most effective ways to make contact with the spirits. The altered state of consciousness achieved in a journey allows you to transcend the limitations of the rational world and connect with a non-ordinary reality. The shamanic journey is common to all cultures and the nature of the journey is remarkably similar, even in cultures widely separated by era and geography. In the spirit world, both time and place are illusions. The lessons from the other worlds are universally true, drawing from a collective consciousness that is accessible to all.
