I often receive questions from people who tell me they are open all the time, both to spirit and to feelings. It is having a negative effect on the quality of their lives. How do they close down to these things that they do not understand? How can they manage it? I often say to them that there is no simple answer to this question, you cannot teach someone to close down or to manage this in only a few minutes, it is a process that takes time. To do that you have to learn to realize what is actually influencing you. Does it come from the spirit world these feelings or ideas that you are receiving or are you just picking them up telepathically from another person?
Some people say: “There is a lot of spirit activity in my house, please help me take it away!” Perhaps it is not spirits; perhaps it is just the memory of the house. Could it be mixed up with other things such as unwanted memories or feelings from your childhood that from time to time just pop up in your head or your memory, without you having invited them to come? Are you a person that spend endless time trying to give people advice or telling them how to live, believing that you are helping them? To be an open and sensitive person can affect you in many ways. Can you recognize within yourself the points that I am making now?
Where do you go with all these questions? Do you want to work with it so that you can learn how to manage it and allow it to become a part of your life, or are you still of the mind that you just want someone to come along with a magic wand and just take it away in an instant? If you are looking for an instant solution, in my own experience I can tell you there is not one. I have in my own life had the same questions: What do I do with all this? How do I handle it? That is why I call my book The Road to Freedom. I have had to work really hard to get to know myself the way I really am and that continues to be an ongoing process. I have had to seek the help of teachers, therapists and the alike in order to journey into myself and create a structure that can house all these aspects of me.
When I work for spirit I am open, I have learned how to open and close to them. I rarely advise people on how they should live. That is not my job, but if they ask me for advice I can offer my insights once or twice, but if nothing happens after that I know they are not listening. In my life I have had to learn to set lines, to structure and say “I do not know” and realize that I cannot be everything to everyone.
If I did not create such a structure and set lines as a medium and person I would soon end up emotionally burnt out. If you are a sensitive person perhaps it is high time for you to start learning to deal with these feelings and understand where they come from? Do they come from within yourself or from another source? Perhaps it is both? It is important to learn to identify what is happening within and learn to manage it, as opposed to becoming a victim of it. This is how I begun to take the journey from chaos to freedom.
