A Friend's Whispers

"We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.” ~Stephen R. Covey
I write a lot about whispers here in my blog, but it's because I've always had them, and because they've been such a big part of my life -- they're a gift from the universe, everyone. I'm always fascinated when others tell me about theirs. I especially enjoy it when someone describes something that's so obviously a spiritual whisper, and yet they just don't see the obvious -- that it's a message, a whisper, from God and the universe.
I have a friend here in DuBois who said he's experienced some (these are his words) "really strange shit". He shares what happened, but in telling you about it, he doesn't want me to use his name.
He told me he was in the shower, and suddenly, he heard someone call his name. He said there was no mistaking it, because it was very clear and very loud. He told me he always locks both the front and back doors, so he thought maybe someone had broken in. He jumped out of the shower, grabbed a baseball bat he keeps behind his bedroom door, and he ran naked through the house looking into each room. Nothing was there, of course, and he told me he felt pretty ridiculous as he went back to the bathroom to finish his shower.
A day or so later, he was outside mowing the lawn. He said he kept having the feeling that someone was watching him as he passed back and forth across the back yard with the mower. Again he heard someone call his name. He described it as "weird shit" and told me the hairs on the back of his neck stood up "because that's just not normal". I tried to help him understand, but he refused to think of either event as receiving whispers.
I wish I could find some easy way to convince people that there's nothing evil about hearing whispers -- it's God and the universe contacting us, and for good reason. But the problem is, we're taught from childhood that God is invisible, he's to be feared, and to believe in anything outside of the sanctity of the church and their teachings has to be the work of the devil. Some even believe the whispers are ghosts speaking to us. But that's just not true, and couldn't be further from the truth.
I tried telling my friend that having spiritual whispers is a good thing. We all hear whispers, whether or not we think of them as such. Some people think it's their conscience. Or if they hear a warning, they think of it as intuition, but it's a whisper from our spirit guide, just the same. They are with us, by agreement, even before our birth to help and guide us through our lifetime, and even beyond. Whispers ARE intuitions, precognitions, suggestions, warnings, announcements, and I could go on and on.
My friend's elderly mother fell a week after he had those whispers. Because of a medical condition, she shattered a bone in her leg and had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital for surgery to repair it. Was his spirit guide trying to contact him to forewarn him of her fall? Or possibly, his guide was merely trying to tell him it was time for him to become more spiritually aware ... and he is, whether he wants to be more aware or not.
Everyone has a spirit guide. They've been with us since birth and they whisper things to us all the time. It's important that we learn to distinguish their whispers from our own mind's congested thoughts. The more we listen, the better we'll learn to hear. It's one of our many gifts from the universe ...
