Each week I will post the transcript of my podcast episode for the convenience of those who do not listen to the podcast or would like a printed version.
Welcome to Episode 68 of Mystic Musings with Tobie Hewitt. This week we will consider the Interdependent Web as we continue our mystic journey.
One of the most important things I have learned this past year of, at times, intensively giving psychic medium readings and taking part in psychic fairs is that the message behind the reading is often more important than the reading itself. When I receive verifiable information from a loved one on the other side of the veil and share it with my client, I am proving that there is no death, there are no dead. We are spiritual beings having a physical experience. That’s it. I know the messages give comfort. I know that information gathered from Spirit gives guidance for life paths, but this information is always tempered by the incarnate person’s free will, which can change a reading the moment they stand up and leave my presence. Perhaps the information inspires or gives solace, but, in the end, it is little more than a snapshot in a moment in time of what could be, not what will be, and so, while entertaining and perhaps inspiring, this portion of a reading is very unsatisfying to deliver because I know it has limited value as a predictor of action and fulfillment.
But, the first part, connecting to spirits and proving the truth of our existence has far ranging benefit not only for the client, but for the larger community and, it is hoped, the world. When we know we are here to experience and learn and then return to our true home, it changes, or, at least should change, the paradigm within which rests our perspective of what we do and what others do that affects our lives. Current events challenge our sensibilities in ways unfathomable previously, at least in my present lifetime. The harshness, the cruelty, the unjustness of the actions and beliefs seem to tear at the very fabric of our lives and cause many to sink into distress and depression. But, here is the lesson: it is all a lesson, difficult at times, but in being so, all the more important to face and then to take action to counter and temper these negative vibrations with positive ones that we continuously strengthen while our spirits walk on this plane, on this planet.
We are being called to learn and to respond by whatever name you call that larger being, but which I call the Creative Spirit. That being, that loving and creative spirit, is asking us to learn how to combat hate with love, both being energies that have much power, but the former is human created and the latter was created in the moment of that larger creation on and within which the Interdependent Web resides.
The despicable demise of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the sending of live pipe bombs to those with whom someone disagrees and inspired by those in power, and the mass murder at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, these are only the most recent and most visible examples of the depths to which the negative energies are reaching to change the nature of the world around us. These negative energies, as has been discussed in previous episodes and in my book What Now? A survival guide for the spirit in challenging times, have been created by those whose thirst for power and money vitalized their egos in the most negative ways possible. Living in the dark and lower realms of this planet, these energies have challenged us since the consciousness of greed and superiority manifested in tangible and destructive ways. Our job, our continuing and every-present call to act, is to counter with love, compassion, and empathy toward everyone we meet. By taking up this sword of right, rather than might, we will learn how to counter those who feed on the negative and are attempting to make that the climate in which we live.
We are not helpless lemmings. We have choices to use our hearts and minds to heal the encroaching darkness. We can speak out and act to change the paradigm to one that focuses on nurturing of each other and the planet. In this current moment, that means we can seek out representation in this country by those who seek to foster that nurturing spirit and help protect us and the planet on which we reside. Please take a moment on November 6 to vote for those who live in and of the energy of love.
