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?
Can you remember the last time you really looked forward to something and it did not turn out as perfect as you anticipated? Can you remember your disappointment?
Let's look at what happened here. You had particular expectations that were not fulfilled because your expectations were unrealistically high. You attached an emotional value to the outcome, and you focused on the emotional value rather than on the outcome.
The outcome was not equivalent to the emotional value that you attached to it, and as a result you attached a different emotional value to it, namely disappointment. You did not accept the outcome or actions for what they were worth, but discarded them on the basis of an emotional judgment.
Then there were other occasions where you felt that something was a chore and you did not really look forward to it but did it anyway, and it turned out to be quite enjoyable. Why would that be?
