For me it is very important to start my day by connecting to spirit, it prepares me for the day ahead. This is a way of showing respect. This routine plays a big part in my everyday life. My mind is open, in so doing I become much more aware of myself as a person. For example, it helps me recognise when it is necessary to set lines, how I am going to handle difficult situations etcetera.
Mediums who take credit for everything they do, they lose their contact with spirit, that guiding power. I have witnessed many mediums and healers who have fallen into that trap and consequently burnt themselves out, they are using their own energy and draining it.
Ascala has talked to me about this many times, to open my mind and give me an awareness on my responsibilities as a medium. It is also very easy to fall into the trap of the “Guru complex” that you with your spirit contact can do everything or know everything. Ego is a very subtle thing, it can creep up behind you when you least expect it. That is when we lose contact with spirit.
When you have these abilities we have one foot in one world and one in another, we mediums are the bridges between spirit and the everyday reality here and now. Sometimes I have to take a step back and stop, to remind myself that it is not just about Terry Evans.
I have heard many mediums say, spirit do not want to talk to me anymore. But that is not the case, it is the ego that cuts of the connection. It is always very important to keep contact with them every day. It is very important to acknowledge that higher power. As I have gotten older I have connected more with this infinite power. It has become my constant companion.
Ascala has been a great teacher for me. He has shown me the way through any difficult situations in life. As he has done that my consciousness has expanded and developed. As we have our discussions my inner world expand. He has given me tools to help me be much more responsible for myself. I do not always get it right, but when I have crossed a line he quickly sends me a reminder. Ascala has many times pointed out that everything I am is transparent to him. I cannot hide.
This intelligence is kind, it is not dangerous, but it is not there just to give you what you want it is there to guide you. But so often that is taken for granted or ignored.
With each step I have taken on my life’s journey and as I continue to have that morning meeting with Ascala the bond between us grows stronger and stronger. The more conscious I become the closer Ascala can come to me. That power has become a living and active part of me. Ascala is both part of those higher dimensions and a part of me.
In following this way of thinking and this philosophy it has certainly been of great help for me to be able to understand and receive how Ascala is offering guidance. Of course I ask him questions, but he does not answer me in my way, I receive the answers in the most unexpected way. With that I receive a special feeling: The knowing. I just feel it is right in my heart and soul.
The lessons he has taught me has not just come at once, it has come in stages. Very often it is a long process. When my consciousness is much more open I become more aware of the process within me and that is when the answers comes. Mediums and healers can never hurry this process, it is a two way thing between the guide and the recipient.
The intellect is a very important tool, but it certainly cannot answer questions related to working with that higher intelligence. They know our limitations and our potential. Much of the help I have received when I have been in confusion, then he will step in and give me very subtle guidance to find the way out of it and to find a solution in order to take the next step.
The Ascala intelligence is part of my everyday life. Without it I would not know how to cope with having my feet in two dimensions at the same time, one in the spirit dimension one in the here and now.
