I remember when I first started my journey towards learning mediumship and when I learnt to connect with spirit. There were many things that I was curious about and wanted to understand. I was interested in trance mediumship, physical phenomena etcetera. There were so many things that I wanted to learn at once. I had very good and strict teachers. They taught me mental mediumship, i.e. mediumship that comes up in our conscious mind, we hear, see or feel spirit.
After a couple of years I decided I wanted to focus on my mental mediumship and how to improve it, so that is what I focused on for four or five years. Such was my curiosity, if I had given away to it I would have been doing 100 courses at the same time, but my teachers taught me to focus on one thing at a time: “Do not take on too many things at the same time.” My guide also said: “I will guide you towards what I feel your potential is.”
Not long after this I realised too that I was very curious about the mind and how it works, and that I had been ever since I was a kid. This is when the concept of the Mountain Meditation first came to me. It took some time before I understood it was a meditation that my guide had given me. That is also when I realised that the Mountain Meditation and mediumship could have a very close collaboration. I was soon to learn that it was not just a tool for opening up to spirit, but also a tool for personal development. Following on from that I started a course in trance mediumship. I worked a little bit with it afterwards, but did not feel that I was ready to make that commitment. I was becoming more and more interested in personal development and areas of the mind that had yet to be explored.
As I write Ascala suddenly steps in and says:
I am glad you listened to your feeling, because that approach gives you more time to work with the things that we now talk about. What I did not want you to do was to fall into a trap of going to one course to another, trying to do too many things at the same time. When you started working with the Mountain Meditation much more you also realised it could help people discover who they really are, with time and patience. To go to a course is just a stepping stone, what you have learnt does not become a tool until you have some experience in using it. A course is an introduction that will hopefully help you make contact with your inner potential.
As I look back over the years I am glad that I listened to Ascala. In many ways he slowed me down when my curiosity or enthusiasm was about to take over. The reason I write this is because I would like to say to you who feel exactly like I did: Please do not try to do too many things at once. When you feel that you know what you want to do, work with that. When you have gained some experience something new will knock on your door and take you to your next step, without you having to search for it.
I just give you food for thought and an opportunity to question yourself, when you can do that you maintain the contact that you have with your guide. Try it out for a couple of weeks, you will be surprised!
As we say in England. More haste, less speed.
