Gwendolyn talks to Scott about life...and Heaven and Hell.

Heaven or Hell?

I asked Gwendolyn, my Spiritual guide to come and talk to me. Here is what she said to me.

Scott, I am right here. You will notice that I am never away from you…you are away from me…only in your thoughts and the dramas of your life. I am only a thought away. If you want to connect to my energy all you have to do is focus your attention on me…whether it be by thinking of my presence or just thinking of me helping you.

I am a Spirit Guide who has taken on the assignment of helping you on this earthly plane. We have Spiritual helpers who watch over our activities too. Not to interfere, but to assist. You will find this assistance is always here from you from Spirit. Again, all you have to do is go into your heart-space and think of me, focusing your attention on my divine essence. That is all there is to it…nothing too complicated even for others who are not trained or schooled in this kind of communication.

You will find conversing with Spirit is as easy as letting go. This letting go, seems hard to the normal person because of the ego concepts that you identify with as a human being. You are divine, or spiritual, and at the same time in human form with human thoughts and emotions. This is part of your human experience on this earth. It is there as a school to you to advance in the spiritual person that you are. No part of the human experience though is to be denied. Spirit’s intent is that you get all that you can experience wise from this great school called earth.

Letting go is as simple as turning it all over to God. You have heard the expression to… “Let go and let God”…and this is an accurate statement of man. The rub is…how to do this when you feel you need to be in control of your world. Again, the roots of your troubles in connecting with the divine are entrenched in your conditioning and the truths you have deemed “the truth.” All truths are based in your human experience and not really full truth, or absolute truth. There is really only one absolute truth and that is…All That Is, or what you refer to in your English language as God. That is the only absolute truth…all others are perceptions of truth.

This might “rock” your world in saying this because you are conditioned to believe that truth is important…even more important than human experience. Most of your truths or beliefs about truth are only hearsay of others you deemed to have a handle on the truth. You believed what they told you over what your internal guidance system, which involves your brain, or thinking process, which is rational and judgmental, and your emotions, which many of you have abandoned as not needed…and most importantly…your hearts. This is where true divine connection always resides…in the center of your beings.

Your personal earthly experience is very important for your spiritual growth and well-being. It is for purpose, and always has a reason, even if you don’t understand it, or the why’s thereof. You have a belief system that God might not be looking after your best interest so fear comes to your human consciousness. Along with fear comes this inner doubt that God will let you fall or fail. This is there because in your past human experience this is what did happen to you, when family and friends failed you, or worse, you failed yourself.

This failing yourself is the most critical in your spiritual path. God wants you to know Scott that even though you have failed yourself, or sabotaged yourself, this too is for learning. You learn every time you fail yourself, or give up on yourself, that there is always forgiveness for such neglect. One of the hardest things for humans to do is really just forgiving themselves for their actions or mis-behaviors. You have all been programmed to believe that God is angry with you for your inner faults and failings but this simply is not so.

Would a father scold his child for not learning to crawl, or walk, in his time-frame? Each child evolves and walks in its own time frame, and not that of the parents. God is the same; it is patient and kind and understands that all that happens will happen in its own time. You humans are messed up with your idea of time. It is a big deal in your world, but not in the realm of Spirit. Time is of no value here. It is only a mental fiction you humans have created to give you some semblance of balance and linear thinking.

Your life does count or you would not be here on earth. Your life and the lives of all humans have divine destiny and purpose. It is the conditioning of others that have interfered with your belief systems. If you truly believe something is urgent or critical, it becomes that for you for you alone create it. Most of you do not realize that you are always creating your earthly experiences. You have blamed God for this, but God has placed it all within your will and the purpose of your Higher-Self, or the soul. You create your dramas, you create all your pain, and you create your happiness too. You are not a victim, unless you believe you are.

So, the best thing a human can do is take full responsibility for all their actions, behaviors, dramas, and events. This will automatically connect you to the Higher-Self, or to God. By saying you are a victim is only a lie and a personal misconception of your truth. God wants you to be empowered, and not disempowered. You have the freedom to choose one over the other…which will it be?

Most don’t even consciously know that they have the ability to heal themselves in every way…Emotionally, Mentally, and Physically. By connecting to the God-Source and your Higher-Self, this is all possible. Instead, most of you relegate your healing to the special others in your life, those who stand outside of you. Doctors, lawyers, a God that resides outside of you and others you deem have special powers or gifts as you would say. All you’re healing is within your capability to perform. Are others important in your life…of course…because they are there to help you too. Don’t, not accept their individual help; if it is within their power to help you…just don’t rely on it. Don’t act as if you can not help yourself heal this event. By looking outside of you, you do not always learn what your soul desires to learn and comprehend.

This goes very contrary to most who believe in a God who is outside of themselves. This creates victim-hood in many as they don’t have any control of events in this life. They have relegated all control to God as if God were responsible for all that happens in your life. This too is a flawed belief system that does not serve the soul…it does not foster growth. It makes you dependent on something outside of yourself to help you. God is in you, not outside of you. God is in you, you are in God, and you are inseparable.

Religion causes separation in your thoughts and beliefs and alienates you from your Higher-Self, which is God. God wants all oneness with you. All separation between God and you is nothing more than a thought, which has formed into a belief in your own minds. You have been taught that if you believe a different way than what others have conditioned you to believe that you will be punished and go to a place called hell. Hell is in your mind my child…only in your mind.

You can choose a hell on earth, or you can choose to have heaven on earth. What is your choice?
