In Response To: my spirituality has gone. (Margaret B)

Dear Margaret

Thanks for your question and the difficult period of time you have had over the last few years. You say you were a spiritual person, and now appear to be a little disillusioned about life in general. Sadly this is not uncommon, and happens to virtually everyone. Of course we all have ups and downs; unfortunately this is the course of life as we know it, and often we can feel somewhat let down by the less fortunate circumstances we move through. However, life is movement which takes us through many experiences, some we like, and others we don't.

During my work supporting bereaved people, I refer to the changes that occur within the process of this life; we in fact all bear burdens and trials. Some people see these changes as a testing period, a time to build upon strengths and overcome our weakness. This of course is no consolation, though it is a fact we all have to face, within the course of our lives, both in this world and the next. You mention that you do not have any spiritual companions. You may feel this way because of your difficulties, though this is not the case. Often people fall into the trap of believing their spiritual companions leave them; in fact they don’t, they are about and around. The role of a ‘Spiritual Guardian’ takes in general the support of people in the world. Their work must be a very difficult and trying one, one often not appreciated by many. Spiritual Guardians are aware, because they have greater understanding, and know those few steps ahead we have to tread, whilst on our earthly journey.

With you not being able to receive spiritual healing, all I personally can do is to place you onto my healing list. I am sure other people who read these few words, and are gifted with spiritual healing, will do likewise. I have added a very well known poem, a particular favourite of a friend of mine, who like yourself, has had a very difficult life through illness and various ailments. I hope it helps you as you move forward.

Footprints in the Sand

One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You'd walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."

He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings,
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."
