"Ask her: 'If you saw me, would you tell anyone?'"
I took deva's cue. I softly inquired, "Lois, if you saw glow of this deva right now . . . if you communicated with it in some way . . . would you tell anyone?"
"No, absolutely not!" she replied immediately, abruptly sitting up straight in her chair. "I've gotten in such trouble talking about things like that. You can lose friends that way."
Lois' reply was so terse and fearful, I realized instantly why she never experienced spiritual visions, multisensory awareness or communications with other dimensions. The barrier was her own unconsciously held, internal, emotional belief system. She believed if she communicated with nonphysical world and people found out, they would think she was a foolish old woman. Lois was afraid people would say she was crazy. This, in turn, would cause her an enormous degree of shame. Lois was in denial. Unconsciously, of course, as with all denial. She was actually refusing contact, blocking herself from opening to connection she so desperately longed for in her life.
Now I understood. I thought to myself, Each of us is in charge of what kind of spiritual experiences we can and do have. By receptivity level of our own unconscious, emotional beliefs, we determine how much we can open to full array of all possible dimensions and aspects of life. We are keepers and creators of our own magic and miracles.
I shared my insight with Lois. She definitely saw how she psychologically hindered her own ability to have spiritual experiences for which she so longed. I assisted Lois to feel, release and integrate her strong emotions about publicly expressing her natural spiritual abilities. After a short while, Lois was much lighter and a lot freer of vibration generally called "fear. She felt very open to possibility of developing her innate spiritual skills no matter who found out about them!
The last time I connected with Lois, she reported she's seeing a distinct glow around certain flowers in her garden. She's also feeling a definite, strong presence and a long-desired tranquility when speaking to her roses. Last week, a daffodil actually talked back!
And, she no longer keeps her magic to herself. She's told two friends so far. And they don't think she's a crackpot. In fact, they'd like to learn themselves how to converse with plant spirits.
