As a Business Analyst, I was always fascinated with “elicitation.” If I didn’t ask a question or didn’t ask it the “right way,” I would miss collecting enough information to help develop a proper solution. (This has been my primary role in Information Technology (IT), for 30+ years).
The more I knew about the software and the issue to solve, the better questions I could ask, and then, fuller answers elicited.
Now, I feel like I’m applying my analytical skills to spiritual work. It feels really good, and somehow ancient! ❤️🦋🌀🎼🙏☯️
Definitions of Holism
If you look up the definitions of Holism, you see it is tied to psychology (because Everything begins with Thought and Consciousness), anthropology, language, and ecology.
There is the belief that “parts of a whole are in intimate interconnection” and that such they cannot exist independent from the whole. The whole considered to be greater than the sum of its parts.
In ecology, Holism says that we interpenetrate and define each other: think the collective mind, societies, cultures, and our environmental footprint on the planet.
How I found Holism
Several years ago, I attended multiple lectures (and Qigong lessons) with Lama Nicholas Packard (see previous articles here and here).
Lama Nicholas spoke about The Dao (Daoism / Taoism) and Holism, before that, I didn’t know much about Daoism (except I had the small book, Tao De Ching, but I hadn’t read it all at that time), and I had not heard of Holism—except I had used holistic health remedies for years. I just had not embraced Holism in a religious sort of context.
Why I care…
The other day a friend sparked a thought in my mind about “why I care about others.” I told her if I didn’t believe We Are All Connected, I may not give a sh*t about others, or their opinions. But I do care. Apparently, it’s how I’m wired. And probably also because I’m an empath. (According to Anita Moorjani, I’m a unicorn 🦄 empath too! But that’s another story).
No one owns the waters; no one owns the soil
No one owns the oceans; no one owns the air.
Anything you think you OWN is merely an illusion. Better to grow your soul. Be in alignment. That’s where your POWER resides.
Hey, if you’d LOVE to talk about this, let’s open a popup room in my club on CLUBHOUSE!
An Amazon bestselling author of two co-authored books: “Transform Your Life Book 2 Inspirational Stories and Expert Advice” and “Energy of Receiving”, both available on Amazon.
I would love to speak at your bookstore, crystal shop, acupuncture / chiropractor office, or other holistic / natural fair or festival. I support healthy lifestyle businesses. For information on both of my books, visit my Amazon author’s page — Click here.
God is real in the reality of the impacts on those open to the possibility. Considering whether or not to choose such openness, James decided that it is more beneficial to act as if there is a transcendent that gives an ultimate meaning to life.
William James, Philosopher and Psychologist—Father of American psychology.
Granted, not all believers in God claim to have heard God’s voice, such as Neale Donald Walsch, author of the series of Conversations with God books. Nevertheless, most believers do credit God with healings and a variety of phenomenon (such as synchronicities) that cannot otherwise be explained.
This is a huge topic, and one that I have written about before, so I won’t go into it all again, except to provide a list to my previous articles and say that I continue to reap energetic benefits from the time I spent at Newgrange in County Meath, Glendalough, Ireland, Stonehenge in England, and multiple sites in Scotland, especially on the grounds of Rosslyn Chapel and castle, Isle of Skye, and the Faerie Glen.
As you may recall, I wrote an article, https://sheilamurrey.net/2019/04/19/a-surreal-vision-of-soul-departing/ after my dad died (crossed over to the Grand Beyond), which was quite the profound experience. That surreal experience, as well as others regarding my still born sister, Christina (link in the section: Metaphysical Experiences), lend to my knowing of Life After Death, and add to my beliefs of Omniscience (my name for the unknowable Dao, or God).
Friend, film producer, co-founder of the Spiritual Cinema Circle, and author, Stephen Simon has now, published a book with his beloved wife Lauren (who crossed over to the Grand Beyond in her sleep). I am so thrilled their book, What Dreams Have Come: Loving Through The Veil, is available on Amazon.
Update: The Kindle version is available! I have read it and have a book review in process! Love it!
Also from the same Psychology Today article,
Studies with non-clinical populations have suggested that people are especially likely to hear hallucinatory voices during times of loss or bereavement. In one study, 30% reported hearing the voice of their deceased loved one within the first month of their death, and 6% still heard them a year later. In another study, 13% of persons heard the voice of their deceased spouse, including some who had been widowed up to 40 years prior to being interviewed.
To date, thanks to the metaphysical experiences I’ve had, I have learned that we’re never alone. This knowing gives me eternal peace. The following articles offer a glimpse of the experiences I’ve had:
Because I just can’t put all my trust and faith in any ONE person, concept, or teaching anymore, I have turned towards Spirit to lead and guide me.
I consider all I have learned up to this point in my life, as guideposts. Like training wheels help a child learn to ride a bicycle with proficiency and under self locomotion, that is how I view all religious instruction. Good for a time, but once you’re strong and steady in your knowing, and you have fully integrated Spirit, God, Source, Divine Essence, live the Dao, accepted the garment of the Christ, etc. you’re walking your path.
