I believe that there is a side in all of us that wants to please people. The temptation of becoming, or doing, what others want us to be or do can be quite strong at times. In other words, to give people what they want to hear, to pay them lip service or to simply hide away when the going gets tough. I think the biggest fear we have is either to not be confirmed, not liked, and instead meet with criticism.
I have done my best to hold my line, that line being the place within me where my truth comes from. If I succumb to the temptation of taking the easy way I end up becoming very disappointed with myself, but if I step up and hold my line of truth, the criticism will still be there, I would be aware of that, but at least I can be open to receiving the criticism or negative comments. The best feeling is being true to myself and stand for what I am.
On the other hand, my spirit team that I often speak about, what effect could it have upon them when I give way to the temptation of not being honest and standing by my truth and what I believe in? For example, they give me information to pass on to a client, but I edit that information before I communicate it because I have decided what the person is ready to hear. When I do that it is interference and I am distorting the message of the spirit contact. If I were to do that, I would allow my own ego to take over so that I can be confirmed or liked. If I fall into this trap, I just become immoral and my spirit team I think will be slightly disappointed with me and step back, because they do not trust me to speak with their voice.
“I do not really believe that anybody wants to be seen as controversial, but working with mediumship is seen, in many areas of society, as a controversial subject.
Many years ago I had a consultation with a very good astrologer; the theme throughout the consultation was that I would always be seen as controversial. At that time I did not really understand the meaning, but down through the years I have gained a much better insight into what the astrologer was trying to convey. I do not really believe that anybody wants to be seen as controversial, but working with mediumship is seen, in many areas of society, as a controversial subject. In my everyday life I sometimes meet situations that require me giving honest opinions and sometimes when I communicate in an honest way that can be seen as controversial. But I would rather be that than not daring to offer my truth.
Yes, at times I can be wrong, in which case I can offer a sincere apology, but when I know that I am lying to myself it gives me a very uncomfortable feeling, so then all I can do is to tell the truth. Many times in my life, after having offered my truth, people have come back and thanked me. Often when I have not told the truth or given an honest opinion it has come back and bit me in the ass, for one thing is for sure, it is impossible to pleas all the people all of the time.
