Remember when, as a kid, you wrote letters home while you were at Camp? Well, I never went to camp, but do know about the practice of writing home while away at camp for the summer. Later in my life, I am finally having the ‘Camp’ experience, though not in the most traditional sense of the word. My insights and experiences will be sent to you in this series of Letters. I hope you will find them of value to your spiritual journey…
Just when I think I have a handle on what is coming next, the nudges from Spirit happen and I am off and running in yet another direction, down what may – at first glance – appear to be a deviation from my path.
Such is the case with my recent ‘obsession’ with pursuing yet more spiritual education via an extended formal training program in Mediumship through a Spiritualist Camp in – of all places – Indiana. So, in addition to it being a long program, it’s not an easy thing to manage the scheduling and traveling arrangements.
Six months or so ago, I found myself ‘wandering’ online. (When this happens, I just allow it because it is a way that Guidance brings me information I’m not consciously aware of.) This day, I found myself on the Camp Chesterfield website.
I remembered I’d found myself here before, some years ago. I mention this because often people worry they might miss an important opportunity on their spiritual growth path if they make the ‘wrong’ choice. Not so. If it is part of your Soul’s intention for this incarnation, trust me, Spirit will find ways to keep bringing that opportunity around for you to choose – or not choose – until, I suspect, you draw your last breath.
Last year, I’d begun the study of Projective Dreamwork with Jeremy Taylor, and now I find myself looking at this Mediumship program. What was up with this, anyway? I have a dear friend who is an incredibly gifted, accomplished Astrologer with over 40 years’ experience. She is also a Scorpio, which makes her very intuitive. I asked her for a favor. I asked her to look at my chart to determine if there was any ‘higher’ vibration I might be responding to.
No surprise, there it was. For the next two years or so, I am in a cycle of learning. This allowed me to relax into the flow of where the energy was leading me. I hedged my bet by traveling up to the Camp for a weekend workshop just to get the feel of the place.
There is a supportive energy there that allows for a lifting of the vibrations of the physical body. (I will share about this weekend in a separate letter.) Simply walking the grounds can bring calm and a sense of peace.
If you look for the goodness, the blessings that are available here, you will be rewarded. Go in with a positive, receptive attitude, and Spirit will respond in magnificent ways.
When I returned from that weekend, I prayed about that next step, until I felt I’d received clear guidance about what I needed to do next in order to improve my ability to serve Spirit. I had the impression I’d be well served to record my experiences as I had them, that I would be learning some important things during this time. I did not keep as good a record of my early teachings that were given to me by my Spirit teachers almost 30 years ago, and I know I missed some important insights. This time, I vowed to do it differently. These Letters are a part of that promise to myself.
