Hello, H___. I see you are better now. And so is our rapport. Lets
Yesterday in the chat-room you talked about guardian angels and
guides. It is an interesting topic. Well, first I will comment upon
what you already know. All men have a guardian angel, at least one,
but many have more. The guardian angel may be a spirit on the Celestial
pathway or not, his development may vary, but he is always a good
spirit. He always has access to his charge, but that mortal may
make the angels job pretty difficult. The mortal can maintain
extensive contacts to dark spirits, even very evil ones, without
the angel being able to do anything in that respect. He can only
warn and advise, but he cannot intervene actively. This would interfere
with free will.
When the mortal really seeks spiritual development, s/he attracts
a guide. This spirit guide has slightly different tasks to perform.
His work is not any more that of warning against dangers, etc.,
but, as the name indicates, that of giving guidance, direction,
education. We can say the guide is in charge of the mortals
spiritual education. He is a teacher.
Any mortal who strives for Divine Love receives a guide who possesses
the Love of God, and who through his own experience, may best direct
[H.R.: Always a Celestial angel?]
Not necessarily. But they are always very advanced and capable
[H.R.: Like from the seventh sphere?]
Yes, exactly. I think the tasks of both groups of angels is quite
clear to you now. Their functions differ, but logically, they also
overlap partially. It is even possible that a guardian angel is
the mortals guide at the same time, if the situation and the
angels development permit it. But normally, the guardian angel
stays with the mortal from the time of his incarnation until his
passing over. The guide only comes with the desire of his charge
for spiritual development.
Mortals perceive their instructions or warnings in the same way.
They are those impressions, impulses, thoughts of the inner voice,
of the mortals soul, and it is the mortals development
that allows this voice to gain clarity. But it is always perceptible
and sufficiently clear.
[Alfredo wrote me today. Among others, he remarks:
... Reading your last message, I was thinking
that perhaps you should try automatic writing.
You can ask your guide (Judas), if you can do automatic
writing, maybe you can do it, and then you could receive messages
more clearly and your doubts would disappear, although doubts are
normal and you should not worry about them...
How do you like this idea? Is it possible?]
We can try it. Would you feel more comfortable? Im going
to tell you a little bit more about automatic writing.
Usually we understand under automatic writing that a spirit transmits
his thoughts to a medium, and additionally moves the mediums
hand in order to write the same thoughts on paper, or in modern
times, via the keyboard. It is also common to imagine that the hands
automatic movement is so independent, that the medium may engage
in a conversation with another person, while s/he is writing.
There is the extreme case, where the mediums hand moves automatically,
but in reality it is not the spirit who is writing, but the medium
himself or herself, although totally without him/her being aware
of it. In other words, this kind of medium possesses a high degree
of dissociative power, in the sense that his or her conscious actions
may disconnect completely from his/her unconscious actions. Hence
the impression that the hand really moves automatically. Something
similar, though not exactly the same, occurs when an experienced
pianist reads and plays a sheet of music new to him/her, and his/her
fingers fly automatically over the keys in order to play the corresponding
notes s/he is reading, and only in complicated passages has to concentrate
really in what his/her hands are doing.
There is the other extreme where the medium perceives clear thoughts,
and writes them down on paper or on the computer. It is like a dictation
received by a secretary.
Between both extremes there is a wide scale of different degrees
of dissociation, as we have described it earlier. But all shades
of writing mediumship have in common that they fix thoughts formed
in the mediums brain.
I have already written how information transmitted by spirits is
transformed into thoughts of the mortal, his/her own thoughts, and
that is where the danger lies, that the mediums own thoughts
and ideas may sneak in unnoticed.
In this sense, writing mediumship is not superior to other forms
of mediumship. But we may try it. You will need time and patience,
and if your dissociative power is strong enough, you may receive
automatically, if not, you will receive messages through
dictation, which is equally good.
The automatic reception of messages has certain psychological effect,
giving the medium more confidence in the outcome achieved. I dont
tell you all this to decrease your confidence, but to tell you that
what we have achieved so far is very satisfactory as it is. But
Alfredo is right though, because it may be a beautiful experience
for you. And in fact, there is one great advantage: Everything is
set out immediately. You simply cannot forget anything. Although
I also like your practice of repeating all the information obtained
before I leave.
Now I will leave you. You are worn out psychologically. Yes, the
process of receiving information requires strength and energy, and
lately you have drawn too much on your force. But you will recover soon.
God bless you,
