Interviews

August 2013: Divine Voices Are Speaking – Are You Ready To Listen?

I was asked to give readers a better sense of the process of receiving/writing these messages. And so I gave an interview soon after the book was published.

Find out more about the process of receiving these messages and the writing of the book at ModernLifeBlogs [here] Since the website listed is currently under construction, I’ve copied the interview below for your convenience…….

You’ve been communicating with these divine entities for nearly your whole life. Why publish this book now?
The book is being published because these divine entities recently asked me to publish these writings. They say that the time is now to get these teachings out and who am I to question that? A long time ago, I promised I would do whatever I could to help. They are now cashing in their chips, so to speak, and I could never say no to them. Even though my initial response was ’ You want me to do what?!’

What does it feel like to receive these messages? Do you have to be in a certain place, or a particular frame of mind, or do they just come through whenever or wherever?
No, these messages to be published do not come through whenever or wherever. That would be difficult as I do have a normal life just like everyone else. I still have to give permission, or allow them to come through. Usually I put a certain time aside to sit and receive the messages. I have to be rested and I usually start with a brief meditation and set my intention. I wait until I feel a tingling in my hands and then I begin to write.
If there is something that has to be said at times other than these, I can usually sense that and will try to be available as soon as I can to receive the messages. It’s almost like someone tugging on my shirt sleeve wanting to get my attention.

You’ve mentioned the experience of “… this sensation at times of being ‘in front’ and ‘in back of’ my eyes.” Can you talk more about the physical experience of these communications?
When I had this sensation as a child, I had no idea what was going on and when I mentioned it to anyone, they looked at me as if I were crazy. Now, I believe that I was experiencing the sensation of being in and out of my body. These writings come after years of meditation and growth. I think sometimes people are drawn to the ‘magic’ of it all, when in fact this process is very gentle and natural. There are no fireworks, no large apparitions or puffs of smoke. The process is as gentle as the words themselves. I think the key for me has been to learn to quiet my mind, especially that self-doubt, and just allow the process to begin. At first, I would need to keep my eyes closed for clearer reception. That is no longer necessary as the connection has become so much stronger over time. And what I feel is love moving towards me and through me, a feeling of peace and connection.

Receiving messages from divine sources can’t always be an easy thing to process. Are there times when you find your divine connection distracting or even disturbing? How do you integrate this part of your life into your professional life?
First of all, EVERYONE receives messages from divine sources. I just happen to be someone who is more aware of the process and I have worked for many years to develop and trust this relationship. Have you not had a gut feeling, an intuition about something or someone? That is a message from a divine source. It happens to people all the time. It’s just a matter of being open and receptive and trusting the information that you are receiving. The difference with me, I suppose, is that the messages I receive are for a wider audience, though of course, I also receive personal messages. But yes, when this first started happening to me over twenty years ago, the analytical part of me decided that either I had just gone nuts, I had somehow been pre-programmed, or that it was really true. At the time, I confided in a good friend and asked her to just follow me through this process and tell me if she thought I was going off the deep end. She, of course, thought it was wonderful. My response was, ‘Well yes, but it’s not happening to you!’ Though once I realized the gift of it all, I settled in to allow it to develop. At this point, should I ever lose this gift, I would be devastated, as it has become an integral part of who I am. The gift of this for me has been my awareness of my connection to the All and that I am never alone. Everyone has this connection, but they aren’t aware of it. Knowing the truth of this is very comforting to me, not in any way distracting or disturbing. I try to integrate what I’ve learned through this into my life in general; to treat all of creation with respect; to understand the ebb and flow of life; how everything has to fall into place before something I want to accomplish can happen; to pay attention to the synchronous moments in life. Having these pearls of wisdom in my back pocket helps me not to stress as much as I used to over the bumps in the road. What is that wonderful quote, ‘We are not human beings on a spiritual path, but spiritual beings on a human path.’ It is a way of being every moment of my day. I try to walk my talk, some days with more success than others. What helps me most in my professional life is the understanding that there is a time for everything and that does not necessarily follow my timeline. So often there has been pressure to complete a task and I just can’t bring myself to do it. I used to chastise myself about it, but no longer do that. Because inevitably something happens in the interim, an email, a phone call or such, and I realize that the missing link just fell into place. If I had pushed myself to complete the task before this, I wouldn’t have succeeded because of this one last piece that needed to occur. Trusting this inner knowledge has saved me a lot of wasted effort and worry.

Are there any sections of the book that really opened doors in your life? Lillian wrote about this for ModernLife Blogs, how she was really struggling with a particular issue— have you ever had a similar experience?
I have had such a personal relationship with these wonderful guides that my experiences have been a little different. For me, it has been the comforting embraces I feel when I ask for help, the reassurances that all is well and that I am not alone and that I am loved unconditionally. Many of the meditations and exercises that have been given in these teachings have helped me tremendously. I have learned that the answers to my questions can come from the most unlikely of sources. This has taught me to be more present in my daily life. All of these have helped me along the way.

How does it feel to have the personal blog become a very public book? How does it feel to have a team of people assisting you? Has this switch affected the messages you are receiving?
It was never a personal blog. I started the blog because I was asked to start getting the messages out and that seemed to be the easiest way to do it. I’m not someone who is particularly savvy about the internet and didn’t know how to do a webpage. I was still nervous about going ‘public’ with my involvement with these messages and so never put my name anywhere on the blog. Though I did add a picture which I thought would give more credence to the words. People like to have a sense of who is posting, I think. I gave much thought to adding my real name to this book because I don’t particularly want the publicity. And I want the focus to be on these teachings, not on me. I’m just the conduit. But I am committed to getting these messages out to as many people as possible and I didn’t see how being anonymous would help that effort. I think you captured it well in the Joseph Campbell quote you used, Deborah. This is not the life I planned to live, it is the life that was chosen for me.
As far as having a team of people assist in getting this book out, I’m reassured by your dedication to publishing these words after having read them and had them affect your personal lives as well. The truth is, if these words are supposed to get out and reach a lot of people, then that will happen. I’ve done my part and will continue to do what I can, but honestly, I feel there are larger forces at hand to move this forward, if that is what is supposed to happen. I think the intent all along (unbeknownst to me) has been to make these messages public. It just took time and much patience on their part, to get me to a point where I can help facilitate this. But I’m not the only person who is receiving messages like this. There are many people around the world who are also receiving them. I may just be the only one who you know. The messages haven’t changed but continue to build upon each other every week. They have remained consistent in their loving, non-judgmental and gentle tone. These messages speak of universal truths and those never change.

Judging from the responses of readers, the messages you’ve been sharing have a tremendous positive impact on people. Do the words have the same effect on you personally, or is your role as scribe something that interferes with you experiencing their benefit?
I am so glad to hear that these messages have helped others. I don’t always get feedback and just have to trust that whoever is supposed to read these messages will do so. As for me, I never know what will come when I sit down to write. But often the topic may be based on a comment that someone made to me or on something that I read or saw recently.
My relationship with these loving, benevolent beings has transformed my life and I am not the same person I was just a few years ago because of the teachings written here. I will often go back to read what I have written/scribed and think, wow, that is such good advice. Many of these writings reflect what has been going on in my life.as I struggle just like everyone else in my daily life. And I think these messages are written in such a way, they feel very personal to everyone who reads them. So yes, indeed, I have also received many benefits from these messages and my connection with the gentle guides who are sending them to me.

What are the reactions of friends and family now that you are publishing this text? Do you ever have moments of panic or regret? Fear?
For the most part, everyone I have told about this so far has been very supportive. My friends love me even though some of them might not understand or have a point of reference. The pending publication of this book has provided me an opportunity to tell friends about these writings. The truth is that I have not shared this with many people until this year after I began the blog. So although I have been nervous about ‘coming out’ about this part of my life, it has also been freeing. I have no doubt that this is the right thing to do and although I have been taking some deep breaths before I, for example, answer these questions for you, I am trusting that this will unfold exactly as it should.

In the introduction to the book, Deborah speaks of the particular time we find ourselves in, when so many aspects of our lives and the world around us seem to be in transition. Do you have a sense of a particular role for this book in facilitating these changes?
I believe that in order for these transitions to occur as effortlessly as possible, there needs to be a critical mass of people who are helping to facilitate them. And we can do this by increasing our own awareness of the power we have to change our lives and the world. That seems so impossible, but it is very true. We can change the world. My hope is that by reading this book, people will begin to realize the connection they have with every living being and how powerful those connections are. By letting go of fear and the heaviness accompanying it, we can better integrate these transitions. For they are coming and they are wonderful. What I have been told is that this book’s purpose is to help everyone experience these transitions as gently as possible in conjunction with their own personal growth. For as it is stated so many times in these writings, the lessons we learn don’t only affect us, they affect the collective consciousness. Working together as one, we will help ease the coming transitions.

We’ve looked at many spiritual texts in relation to the messages that are contained in One With All of Thee, and have found incredible similarities in content, style and tone, as well as the fact that most of these books have no clear author. Do you see this book as part of a larger series of communications to humanity that has been carrying on throughout history?
Yes, I do. These words appear to be simply stated, but they are very powerful and I do believe they will resonate with many readers. These are universal truths which don’t change and the source is timeless. And I do believe that these truths are found in all the different spiritual texts. They may be framed a little differently in the various spiritual texts because of our cultural diversity, but the message is always the same. As individuals, we each require these truths to be revealed to us in a way that we can best understand. And if this book is not the right venue for some, they will find the same message another place, another time, when they are ready to hear it. We are all on the same path, just at different points on that path and we all have guidance to move forward whether we are aware of it or not. Even the Beatles said it, All you need is love.

    I thought that was how your information was coming. Just had a feeling from reading. There are many getting the same information and those who are open will receive it. More reinforcement. Looking forward to reading more. This is what my lifetime search has been about. Thank you.
