A few months ago I took a one day channeling course. The teacher promised that by the end of the evening, every participant had channeled his spirit
I've been talking to my guide for many years but I figured that maybe this guy could teach me something to improve my methods, so I paied up and took
There where 9 participants of which most said to have experience already. One lady had expectations of speaking in tongues after the class. Another
said she couldn't understand her guide. There was one women who stood out, she would always interrupt others and forced her views upon them, acting
as if she didn't need to be here... so why was she there at all? I admit that during this highly spiritual course I had several thoughts of hitting
her in the face to get her to shut up.
The first hour, the teacher gave us crystals and ask us to 'feel' their energy. While everyone was nodding and saying "oh yes I feel that... oh
this one has strong energy!... do you feel that? Yep I feel it to", when I received the crystals, I felt nothing. The teacher looked at me and I told
him I didn't feel anything, he went "hm".
Next he let a small plant go round, again the same thing happened. Everyone seemed to agree on the energy that came from the plant. When it came into
my hands, I felt nothing.I knew I could feel energy coming from trees and plants, but not here and not now... I tried to focus, what intuitive feeling
do I get from this plant? A thought popped into my head that this plant yelled at me: "help me, I'm being abused". I couldn't help but giggle out
loud, which made the teacher look my way. "I feel nothing" I said.
Finally we went further to the "meet your guide" part.
Now as I said earlier, I have been talking to my guide for many years, maybe even during childhood, but I can't remember if those where just inner
conversations or something else.
When I want to talk with my guide, I don't need hours of focus, it's like I snap my fingers and I have a 'connection' so to speak. I used to have
only one, while the last couple of months they became more then one.
so back to the course. We all had to close our eyes and focus. According to the teacher we had to 'climb up' through all the lower 'astral levels'
to come to the place where our guide is. (just for the record, I have never in my live perceived different levels, just one big astral plane) While
the teacher talks us through and helps everyone to climb, I'm not going up. So I call for my guide and ask him where "up" is, he thought that was
funny. At this point I stopped listening to the teacher, I don't have a clue what else he said, I just sat there chatting with my guide about
creating on the astral and the physical, about changing the astral environment at will, because I still perceive it as I do the physical world.
Some time later, my astral perception became one of a huge playground, with lots of colors, mainly red blue and green, clowns and ... lots of
smarties, It was raining colorful smarties and I felt happy as a little kid, it was nice.
The teacher asks everyone to open our eyes, after a min or so everyone is with us again, except for the 'big mouth' lady, she kept her eyes closed
as long as it took for the teacher to express his concern (Biiiiiig Drama! and I'm sure she is faking it).
"wow" said the teacher, "where did you go?" She replied "if you ask me to go climb up as far as I can, where do YOU think I went? To God of
I try to stay openminded, allow everyone in the room her own beliefs and perceptions of the experiences they all just had. But it's hard with this
The others told of experiences of seeing light or angels, that sort of things.
When it was my turn to tell I decided to be honest and I said "I saw clowns and smarties"
It was kinda funny, but not among this croud... my mistake.
The "big mouth" lady jumped up and yelled "you saw the devil!" The teacher asked her to sit back down so we could continue. I guess the rest
didn't know what to make of it and it wasn't mentioned again.
I was so glad that this course was over. I didn't learn to speak in tongues or channel in another way but thought form. Actually I didn't learn much
Afterwards the teacher approached me, he said it was crystal clear to him that I was stuck in the underworld and that I needed help. (I don't think
so far for that event.
Sorry for the rather long story telling, but it was mainly this event that made me wonder about how others perceive my (or your) spiritual
experiences. I believe that the lady and the teacher couldn't be more wrong with their perception of me. I don't need them to see me all
enlightened, because I'm not.. but I was a bit insulted by them.
So how do you react when people judge you wrong on your spirituality? Do you let them? Or do you feel the need to correct them any way you can?
