The first thing to know about any type of change in consciousness is that your ego will always be your worst enemy. Your ego will fight you all along your path until the day you die. The rapper Tupac Shakur said, “Trust Nobody.” But I would add, but listen to everybody. The truth is in the public domain. It takes a lifetime to search it out. No one person has all of the answers.
The thing is no matter how awakened or enlightened you think you are, your ego will keep you from knowing how far you have come. So when you are truly enlightened, it doesn’t matter. I thought I was schizophrenic for ten years before I learned to open my eyes. Turns out I’m a psychic medium. All I could think about was the wasted ten years I didn’t know I was a medium.
Skepticism is good. I didn’t think dead people could talk to you, because I didn’t believe in God or a heaven. Ego will chew you up and spit you out. I thought I was the smartest son of a bitch in the world (We all do when we are young).
Knowing what I do now, I don’t think I’ve had an original idea in my life. Your guides, angels and loved ones give it to you all! The great ideas, the knowing what to say at the right time, the being in the right place, all the money, winnings, medals is all due to them, while ego takes the credit.
They have us do the things to learn life lessons. The goal being to evolve our soul to learn compassion, forgivness, unconditional love, what I call all the Jesus stuff. That’s how you know if you’re on the right path!
If you’re learning those lessons, then you are on it. Ego will make you stray, as we all have free will. Listen to your angels and guides and you will experience everything you are meant to in this life, the good, the bad and the ugly and you will experience new levels on the human condition that is passed on to the soul level. Always be paying it forward and you will be heading in the right direction.
Are you awakened yet? Does it matter? Not really. In this life time or the next you will be given as much as you can handle. For right now all we can do is Live, learn and love, so later you can evolve, teach and serve. Stay on your path!
