Posted on   by

Last week we spoke of a vision Berna and I had about a year ago. This week, Spirit will give us their thoughts about visions—what they are and why we experience them.

Visions, such as Johnny described last week, are far more common than most of you know. You just do not generally recognize them when they come to you.

First, let’s talk about who “you” are.

One of Johnny’s and Berna’s spiritual resources is A Course in Miracles.Read more

About a year ago, Berna and I were spending the day at a lake up in the hills south of town. I was sitting at a picnic table just enjoying the cool, sunny day. Berna was taking a walk along the lakeshore.

As she returned to the picnic table, the lake was behind her. I watched her as she walked toward me. I glanced behind her and there, walking on the water, were one of my spirit guides and the one we sometimes call Jesus.Read more

Many years ago, I had a startling experience with love and religion.

We were docked in San Diego, California at the time. Simon and I took a weekend off to explore San Diego. We “accidentally” came across a hospitality house owned by a Protestant church.Read more

The natives reportedly could not see Columbus’s three ships. Never having seen one before, they had no idea what a ship was.Read more

posticon Q&A: What Can Spirit Guides Do For You?

Posted on   by

There is a spirit that guides us, if we will listen. It speaks softly. In order to hear it we must still our thoughts and meditate. ~ Frederick Lenz

Someone recently asked us what spirit guides really do. This was Spirit’s and my answer:

Well, I can only answer from my own perspective and experience with my spirit guides over many years.

First, be aware of the various ways they can communicate with you. For me, it’s generally a strong sense of their presence and energy, especially when you have a question or issue they can help you with.Read more
