I remember the day many years ago when I suddenly had an unexpected visitor. At that time, I lived in a very small studio apartment. I was listening to a Simon and Garfunkel record and the song Bridge over troubled waters was playing. At the time it was one of my favourite records. I had begun my journey to mediumship and was sitting in a discussion group where we talked about spiritualism and philosophy. My teacher at the time was Blanche Tilling. She was in her mid-nineties and the president of the spiritualist church that I attended. I had also been in a medium development group for some time. So, much was happening very quickly.
I opened my eyes and there standing in front of me were Ascala, I could see him with my naked eye, or my third eye. He wore the robe of the colours of the Tibetan monk. I could see the colour of his skin. I was speechless. Then he started to talk to me with telepathy. I heard his voice within me and externally. I do not know how long it went on for, it felt like an eternity. It was as if time stood still. He had never shown himself as clearly or powerfully before. Never before in my life had I experienced such love; it was astounding! By his very presence I knew that I wanted this visitor from the higher intelligence close to me and that I never wanted to lose contact with him.
“I had been aware of his presence before, but on this occasion, it was the strongest contact I had ever had with the higher intelligence.
As Ascala conversed with me about my future and what work we had to do together, never before had I felt so safe and secure. That day he opened my heart in a way I had never experienced before. I knew that his very presence was a lesson of a lifetime. His eyes were penetrating as he said to me:
– I am a part of you and you are a part of me. We must work together in unity and with an open mind. Part of your destiny, the most important part, is to meet yourself and discover the very essence of what you are, and to face and remove karmic issues that you brought from another lifetime and to achieve your purpose, your karmic mission in this life.
I just listened; I did not understand everything logically. At one point he said:
– As we walk the same pathway it will all be revealed to you, step by step.
He had opened a new door to his world and into my inner world. I had been aware of his presence before, but on this occasion, it was the strongest contact I had ever had with the higher intelligence. What Ascala has done, as I look back through the years, he has certainly fulfilled his promises so far. For me he is a magician, because he can work magic, the magic that lies hidden within me.
“I came at that moment, because your mind was beginning to open and you were ready to just listen.”
Ascala does not answer all my questions or solve my problems, if he did that what would I learn, what would I realise? What took time to understand was that he was giving me glimpses of myself, showing me a mirror of what could be lying ahead. What I realise now is, along the way he has sent other teachers to me, not when I demanded it, but when I needed it. My real classroom is what I confront within myself, perhaps something that has not been revealed before. The knowledge and all the tools I have use for are already within me, I just have to learn to discover them and how to use them.
I could not force this meeting with Ascala, it just happened when the time was right. But he points out something as he is listening to my thoughts now:
– I came at that moment, because your mind was beginning to open and you were ready to just listen. You realised that you could trust me and then you learned to overcome much of the fear that inhibits your mind, and in so doing giving your potential and your purpose much more freedom to work.
