LIVE: Receive by the Spirit — Spirit Messages, Spirit Messengers

LIVE! … By the Spirit™ with Kathleen E. Walls

Spirit Messages, Spirit Messengers

The Buddhist proverb says, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear”.  I believe that throughout life we are both teachers and students so sometimes we are the student who is ready…and sometimes we are the teacher that appears.  Hence, sometimes we are receiving the Spirit Messages and sometimes we are the Spirit Messengers. 

I have often written and spoken about receiving messages by the spirit.  There are times when you may hear the same thing over and over again…as if it is trying to get your attention.  There are times when you have been thinking about something or wondering what to do and then someone calls with the answer, or a television or radio show seems to provide the insight that you have been waiting to receive.  Then there are those times when someone asks you a question about the same scenario you are dealing with giving you the opportunity to provide the insight to someone else.  In that moment, you realize that the answer has been within you all along!

People have often asked me “how do you know when you are delivering or receiving a spiritual message?”  I usually ask them to reflect on time when they know they have received and/or delivered a message.  Once that has been identified, I ask them to think about what they felt in their body and what they noticed while they were receiving or giving the message.  Some people identify a feeling of warmth in their stomach area, which some have described as the “seat of the soul”.  Others experience goose bumps, raised hairs, or chills all over their body.  While some describe experiencing a “burning heart” (Luke 24:13-35).  All in all, it appears that when divine messages are being delivered or received, it seems that everything else fades away (i.e. people, noise, etc) and the message becomes the most prominent and the total focus within the moment.

As we Live by the Spirit, it is important for us to discern when we are led to deliver Spirit Messages and when we are in the presence of Spirit Messengers.  When we deliver and/or receive these spirit messages, they usually benefit us all.  They are used to edify us, clarify situations for us, free us, provide clarity, and increase our level of wisdom, knowledge, and understand.  These messages help us to stay and/or “get back” on track, move us along our path to fulfill our purpose, and/or remind us that we are not alone, that there is “something” greater than ourselves, and mostly that we are loved.

In this month that we are learning to Receive by the Spirit, be mindful of when you are receiving a Spirit Message and when you are being led to be a Spirit Messenger.

God Bless and continue to Live By The Spirit.
