When we focus on the paths of the Interdependent Web, we’re acknowledging an infinite number of connections we have within ourselves and between each other and all things that ever existed and will exist because the web contains everything within a space called here and a time called now. The path of this moment rests in a spiral that has no beginning and no end and is intrinsically planted in the Interdependent Web. It’s complicated and a visual depiction would be hard to create without knowledge of fractal geometry. If you use your imagination and think of a spider’s web swirling within a spiral, neither with a beginning nor an end, you might be able to touch on an idea of what this framework is like. But, it is more important to understand that you’re intrinsically a part of an eternal web of reality that’s grounded in a spiral that’s the form of here and now.
Why is this important to know as we pursue pathwork? Because the web and the spiral are paths of experience and knowledge that exist without our immediate acknowledgment of their existence despite the fact that we’re connected to each and they inform our steps and remember our plan and help to guide us. It’s as though we’re in a city, such as New York City, which is very much laid out as a grid for the most part. With awareness, you can get from point A to point B by simply knowing the layout of the streets. Perhaps you don’t need to go to the Village, but instead want to journey to Central Park. You’d recognize that walking in the direction wherein the street numbers go up would bring you to that location.
Let’s add one more idea here. What if you had an actual map and you could see the details of the stores and sites that exist on each of those streets that you’re passing? Or could remember knowing how to traverse the city because you’ve been here before. Within the Interdependent Web is contained a record of all things, and events, and knowledge, and relationships, etc. It’s generally known as the Akashic Record. It can be considered a vast library that not only contains a record of all things, but can be accessed to gain insight into where you are, where you’ve been, and where you are going. For the most part, being on a path does not require all of this knowledge or an understanding of how it works, but it’s nice to know we’re all part of a much vaster plan and that each and every person and thing plays an important part in the plan of the Universe.
When we acknowledge the simple complexity of who we are and our starting point in a lifetime, we can have a better understanding of the steps necessary to fulfill our life plan, to do our pathwork.
The first step in your journey of discovering your path in life is to acknowledge the limitations you have in being here now, and then take steps to overcome these limitations. That’s where pathwork comes in. You can remember, at the very least, pieces of the map and, at the very most, you can experience moments of epiphany when the clarity of the journey becomes real and your footing becomes more sure. Remember! You are a spiritual being having a physical experience. Your natural state is that of spirit, and entering the physical plane occurs so you are able to learn lessons you can only learn while in a body, lessons that will help with the evolution of your soul.
The second step in pursuing pathwork is recognition of who you are. Why is this important? Because acknowledging that you’re a spirit here to learn lessons only available from the physical interaction of spirit with this plane will allow you to be open to the information and experiences placed on your path. Otherwise, you’d be simply a physical human with no sense of purpose other than to make it to the other end of your life with little idea of why you did what you did and why it was important for you to do so.
How do I know you are a spirit? Because I’ve spent decades helping people communicate with their loved ones on the other side of the veil. I know the communications are real because the information I’m given from those on the spirit plane that I share with the physical person is often very specific and verifiable. Names, recognizable objects, situations that I couldn’t know any other way than by being able to communicate with those who don’t have bodies, and which are verified by the sitter, has proved to me over and over again that the spiritual plane exists and that it’s all around and in us!
Think of this plane like a school in which we come and go. We don’t spend our entire lives learning in the awake state. Sometimes, we can alter our awareness and gain from moments out of the rigid time frame in which we live. These other ways through which we can learn include meditation and dreamwork. Meditation allows us to quiet our minds and become aware of our spirit self when we attain the gap between conscious thought and superconscious reality. It is that time during which we can best distance ourselves from the realm of ego, which binds us to a narrow view of the world, and allows us to sense the wider reality of which we are a part. One way to think of meditation is that it’s an act of listening to the Universe, as opposed to prayer, which is an act of asking for something from the Universe. In the dream state, we often receive messages from those on the other side (or the other here, as I like to call it, since it’s all here now where you sit). We can gain glimpses of life on the other side, remember other lifetimes, see a future that can be ascertained because, as I said, everything is now, and accessing it is no more difficult than becoming aware that all of this is true, and you are an essential spirit in the grand scheme of the cosmic reality.
Once you accept that you’re more than the face looking back at you in the mirror, the easier it becomes to accept that there’s more to this life than you can remember. And, by the way, have you ever had the experience of looking in the mirror, really looking into your own eyes and having the face seem different for a moment? In that moment, it’s my belief that we’re seeing the physical evidence of a previous incarnation. We can also feel distinctly that there’s something else being reflected to us, an awareness that’s often difficult to name but exists nonetheless.
You are a spirit, you have a body, and acknowledging this will go far on this journey of discovering your lifepath.
