A couple of weeks back I was talking to Ascala, and I said to him:
– I need a little distance, I am still connected with you, but I just want to step back a little bit.
I do not why I said that to him, perhaps I felt I just needed to become a bit more reliant on myself. It felt as if I was becoming too dependent on him.
Of course, when I am working, I still open up to the spirit connection, because without it I cannot work. The interesting thing is, I began to feel feelings and realise things that I had not been paying much attention to, things that I could take more responsibility for. I understood that I had been neglecting my needs. It is a bit like when you have a house with a lot of things in it. Periodically we need to clear out things that we no longer need or use, things that have outgrown their purpose, or has become obsolete.
As I realised that there are other areas of my life where I have to become more responsible for my thinking, I am discovering aspects of myself that are no longer needed. They have served a purpose. I am realising that there are other parts of my mind that need to be cultivated. I need to plant new seeds, because I have been shown new windows of opportunity for my life in the future. It has been absolutely amazing!
“Was it really my idea, or was it the Ascala intelligence influencing me?
Fact is, now that I am clearing out and letting go of things, I have more space for new impressions within my mind and I can feel my mood changing. It is like looking in a shop window: “Oh, I like that, it looks interesting!” It certainly awakens my curiosity. Sometimes it can take me off onto a new road where I can learn new things.
The problem with us human beings is we can become so static in our way of being that we can become stuck in our routines. That is why I told Ascala I would like to be a little bit more self-reliant and at least think it is all my own ideas. In hindsight when I look back, I can think: Was it really my idea, or was it the Ascala intelligence influencing me?
We all need these interludes where we step back. Our minds need to be rejuvenated. If my brain was a house it would need dusting, vacuuming and windows cleaned from time to time, in order to be open for new things, impressions and ideas.
“Sometimes we need to take a rest from ourselves and change the old routines of doing things that no longer work.
This is where I am at the moment and I find it quite interesting. I do not know what the final conclusion is yet or what Ascala has in store for me, but I am sure it is going to be something worthwhile. As I write this article, I presume he is around somewhere chuckling to himself: “Terry thinks it is all his own idea…”
But periodically we must clean out our house and refurnish, so that we can move to the next step. It is very interesting for me to see where this is going to take me, I look forward to it with anticipation! Sometimes we need to take a rest from ourselves and change the old routines of doing things that no longer work. It is always important to follow a new sing post that will show us a new way.
