What do I need to do to grow spiritually and discover my life purpose? How do I know I am on the right path?
I want to understand how the collective consciousness relates to my divine purpose.
I am asking this because of a profound experience I had during a Reiki session. When the Reiki practitioner put her hands over my body, I saw translucent hands covering hers.
The next moment I saw a group of bright, beautiful beings full of Love. I sensed that the group was communicating their thoughts and feelings with me, but one of them led the wordless communication. They told me I was greatly loved.
During this experience I was out of my body and I looked the same way they did, except that they contained more light than I did. At that moment I understood that we are made of the same essence as they are.
They indicated that I was here for a purpose. They did not tell me what that was, and I did not feel a need to ask. They explained that they were always with me in this human experience that can at times be quite difficult.
I felt that I was one with them, but at the same time I did not lose the sense of my separateness as a human being. I felt a deep sense of peace. Before they let, they told me ‘you are a special person’. That peace stayed with me for a while, but then faded. However, the knowledge stayed.
I don’t know whether they were angels, but I like to think of them as the essence of Love.
I want to understand the experience I had. Any thoughts?

I am a medium but I am not getting an answer for my own problems.
Last year I left three jobs. I was in the first one for two years, but felt that I had overstayed my welcome. I got another job working for a person who made promises but never kept them, and then did not pay me for a month.
I found another job where I earned good money, but the managers in the company felt that it was OK to regularly humiliate people and make them cry. I could not work in a situation like that.
I am worried that I will not find another job. I have never been unemployed before.
I have also recently bought a house with my boyfriend of 8 years, and we are very happy in our relationship. But then I dreamt that a man I went out with 20 years ago wants me back and we were surrounded by a beautiful light. Does that mean anything?
I am curious about measuring spirituality. Everyone seems to talk about spiritual growth and enlightenment nowadays, but there is not much talk about the science required to measure these things.
I see so many people boasting about how spiritual they are, but then they say and do things that are completely the opposite of what they claim to believe or what they sell to others.
How would you measure how spiritual a person is, or whether one person is more spiritual than another?
Or is spirituality just a popular social mask with no basis in reality?
I grew up in an extremely conservative Fundamentalist Christian church. We were not allowed any dancing, smoking, TV, radio, or associating with outsiders, and women were not allowed to wear trousers.
When I was a little girl I was sexually abused by a man in his 60s. I told my parents, but they insisted that it was a bad dream. My mother told me that God and prayer would heal me. As a result I never received therapy.
I spent years avoiding all men and grew up with a total aversion to sex.
I am now nearly 30 and feel lost and detached from my life. I have tried counselling and Christianity but it made no difference. God does not seem to be helping and counselling is very slow and expensive.
I am now in my first relationship and I am going to lose this man because I am disgusted by all forms of affection – even kissing.
I would like to heal my broken spirit and be happy in a relationship. How do I do that?
I am 34 years old. About two months ago my life changed drastically. I went to see a chiropractor for a number of issues, including menstrual problems, knee, back and neck pain, and acid reflux. I have been to other chiropractors and knew what to expect. However, I got more than I bargained for.
My acid reflux is gone. My knee and back feel a lot better. I am much less stressed and feel a lot more relaxed.
The biggest change is in my spiritual life. in the past I was interested in spiritual stuff and I read many books. I got to a point where I thought I had all the knowledge, and I felt no significant difference in my life. I kind of closed off that side of me and just got on with life.
A few weeks ago I started meditating – I never thought I would even try it, but I am really enjoying it and I can feel a change in me. I have also noticed specific numbers coming up around me all the time.
Against that background I want to tell you about two very strange dreams I had recently.
The first was when I woke up at 3am and felt wide awake. I decided to do a guided meditation on my earphones so that I could get back to sleep. That is where things got really strange. I am sure I was awake, but at the same time I was not awake – it is difficult to explain. I know I was lying in my bed, and the words ‘I am ready’ came into my mind. Then suddenly I had a VERY intense feeling throughout my entire body – as if I was vibrating or being electrocuted. It felt incredibly good, and I felt blissful and light. My eyes were closed and I was unable to open them.
I remember a high pitch noise in my one ear, and my hands were shaking so much that I could not keep them on the bed.
I remember thinking that I was probably receiving some kind of energy.
I then woke up and felt incredibly good. I went straight back to sleep and slept for a few hours without any dreams, and woke up feeling refreshed and amazingly good.
The second dream, a few nights later, was much less pleasant. I dreamt of being on a rollercoaster and being very scared. I heard an evil laugh and was so afraid that I was completely paralyzed.
I could see myself lying in bed next to my husband, who was fast asleep. In my dream I was trying to wake him up, but I could not get even a word out. I finally started crying and that woke my husband (in my dream) and all he said was that I must get back to sleep. I finally woke up and wrote the dream down, and then went back to sleep again.
Am I right in connecting these weird dreams with the treatment from the chiropractor?
I have recently read two books that had such an impact on me. They are The Book of Not Knowing by Peter Ralston, and Actualizations: You Don’t Have To Rehearse To Be Yourself by Stewart Emery.
I cannot tell you how these books have impressed me – I felt that both of them just touched a chord in me and permanently changed my life.
I was wondering whether you can recommend any books that have made an impact on your life? 144

I am in my early twenties and on the surface have a lovely life. I have a good job, beautiful wife, nice car and big home. I have every reason to be happy, but I am quite stressed.
The reason for my stress is that I feel lost in this world and I have crazy thoughts and questions. I want to know why people blink, how we think, how we see and why we can only see ourselves when we look in a mirror. Why is it that when I read I hear the words in my head without saying them out loud?
I have all these questions and they are taking over when I just want to live and have fun like my mates. I want to be a good husband and provider, but it feels like the more questions I ask, the more stressed out I get.
How do I stop these thoughts? I am supposed to see a psychologist to get some help. What do I tell the psychologist?
After my recent DNA activation to 144 strands my insides feel like someone keeps hitting them with a tuning fork.
What can I do to feel better again?
I have read and learned so much on my spiritual journey and it really has changed me for the better. My problem is that I can now see how other people struggle and I want to help them get out of their comfort zone and have the same breakthroughs I had.
At the moment all I can do is share my intellectual knowledge with people but that seems to confuse more than to helps them. As a result, people move away from me when I only want to help them.
How do I become a real teacher without putting people off?
