Medium Stephen Wakeling Answers Your Questions
Date: 26 June 2014
Thank you for your question about spiritual development, though you appear to me to be providing your own answers. You say you know, deep-down what you want to be, so why not follow your own thoughts? There is no ‘best path’; every pathway has its ups and down, and full of opportunities. No one walks your pathway, yes you are guided but you are in this world to develop your own understanding, personality, individuality, comprehension and inner-peace. Please remember we are all figuratively speaking: “We all work out our imperfections upon the potter’s wheel of life”...
I have answered similar questions for many years now. Perhaps, if you take a little time, and look back at my many answers on ‘Spiritualist Resources’, you will open your mind to higher forces, who will inspire you through thought. I believe there are two basic routes for you to go. Initially you may want to go to a spiritual meeting nearby to where you live. There may be a few, so it is best to look for one that best suits you. But I really do suggest that you look around. Some are becoming extremely religious, others branch off into different areas, a few may be of interest, others not. Perhaps, you may try searching the internet, or simply reading up on the subject.
May I also suggest not too much reading. Try to get an idea and use it within the faculty of your own mind, and work out its content, meaning and comprehension. Reference the Psychic Attack scenario! It really does beggar belief, and amazes me at how much claptrap and twaddle is spoken about this subject. Much of this is from people who should not be in charge of any form of spiritual unfoldement. Use of such ridiculous terminology is naive and shows how little understanding the person has gained in spiritual enlightenment. If one opens the mind to light, then you will attract light, this will allow you to gain clear-thought. The benefits provide a reward far greater than anything in the physical world in which we are now residing.
Regarding you attending an Open-Circle, well the decision is purely yours. However, my thoughts go back to my spiritual teacher who always advised me to keep away from ‘Open Circles’. The reason being: you are in the early stages of your spiritual unfoldment; as such, you are ‘open’ to any conditions. ‘Open-Circles’ are often presented by people with limited spiritual capacity, knowledge, or skills to teach such an intricate subject as spiritual unfoldment. The question about developing your spiritual gift is best suited for a ‘closed-circle’, with an advanced teacher, one with common-sense, experience, credibility and patience. Such groups are rare, I know, but they do exist...
May I wish you every success in your spiritual endeavours?
In Light and Peace
