Don’t Confuse Equal With Same

One of my favorite Intuitives, Lisa MW, who hears guides and beings in spirit so very clearly and whose intuitive advice is always practical, recently shared a channeling she did early last winter about staying sovereign in your own energy. In other words, being able to recognize when something is for you or not. For me, because it’s so easy to drop into my heart and feel what feels right, that’s what I’ve done for years. When my head and heart are battling it out, I defer to the wisdom coming through my heart because that’s our direct pipeline to Source and to our higher guidance. That’s where we tap into our own truth.

During the channeling, she tapped into divine energies of Archangel Michael, The Mary’s (Mother Mary and Mary Magdelene) and Prince. Yes, Prince. These days he’s a righteous spirit guide! And something Lisa brought through really resonated with me. Big time.

“Your guides never ever or divine beings or Prince or any of them ever want you to be in a supplicant position. Okay? Never.”

Yes!! This!! Something that’s bugged the crap out of me, and even more so since I became spiritually woke, is when religions teach that we need to supplicate or prostrate ourselves at the feet of God or saintly beings. Religious teachings so often reinforce the concept that we are less than and unworthy.

From my personal experience of God and from the spiritual perspective of life I hold, that’s the biggest bunch of crap, fed to the masses to keep them docile and under control. Now don’t get me wrong, religions try to get it right, but when man’s own judgment and ego fouls up how to interpret religious teachings, it makes me both angry and so very sad.

One thing I know for sure, without a doubt, is that God feels no judgment. That is a HUMAN quality created by our bodies (our brains, mostly) in order to perpetuate our human experience. We experience judgment as a survival mechanism, as a way to create fear to ensure physical survival. Because once we die, the experience our soul wanted to have through a physical life ends. The name of the game is to stay alive until our soul’s mission is complete.

One of the best teachings a person can embody is how incredibly valuable they are, simply because they exist.

Some of my more recent healing sessions have addressed this; connecting with parts of myself who became separated from the whole by beliefs of unworthiness and not being validated. During childhood, I created beliefs that became relegated to my subconscious mind.

In the eyes of God, we are equal. We are all equally valid. Our lives are all purposeful. Every single one of them with no exception. Even the person who is your tormentor, or the person who is a murderer and has no conscience has a valid purpose in life. I’m not saying their purpose isn’t to cause you pain, because it very well may be. Pain to encourage our growth.

Sometimes we feel insignificant and worthless because we don’t see our contribution to the world. Even someone who is homeless and begging in the street gives us opportunities to be compassionate.

In the eyes of spirit, we are each a thread of the grand tapestry of life. Some of us are blue, green, or gold, and others are smooth as silk or prickly as a blackberry cane. Our lives are all equally important.

Why don’t we know this? Why can’t we see this? Well, we grow up looking at life through our brain’s filters that only allow us (well, most of us) to focus on what we see, hear, touch, feel, taste, and smell. We’re taught to weigh and measure.

I can still remember squabbling with my brothers over making sure we each got an equal share of this or that. Gingerbread cake that was dessert. The last bit of icecream. Cookies from the tin. A turn riding in the front seat of the car. Heaven forbid if one us felt robbed of our share. Whines of, “It’s not fair!” would fill the air. “He got more than me! It’s my turn!” If you grew up with siblings, you’ve been there, done that.

And we weigh and measure relationships as well.

This same mindset stays with us our whole lives unless we challenge it, look at things differently, or heal the emotional upset beneath it all. As children we want things to be the same. We want the same amount that others get. We want what others have. And we learn that our value is tied to what we do, what we accomplish, how well we do things, and how we look.

When we grow up we want the same things that others have. We want the same advantages and opportunities as others have. And when we feel we don’t, we’ll always see a gap.

We’ll always see someone who has better clothes, a better car, a better home, a better life. That will be the focus. But the moment we’re able to let go of judgment, when we can stand in our own truth, looking through the eyes of our own sovereignty, everything changes. We begin to see things as “different” and as other people’s choices. Not as better or worse.

Spirit isn’t hung up on things being the same. In fact, change is the one constant in life and variety is the spice. What’s unique about us is the thing that sets us apart, that allows us to stand out from the crowd.

The moment we know we’re all equally valid and purposeful, it’s easy to take pride in our lives. Everyone has their niche, their style, their preferences, and their own personality. Everyone has their hopes, dreams, and desires, and a place in the world. And as similar as two people can be, even idential twins aren’t the same. Yet they’re equal, equally valid and valuable in the eyes of spirit, as is everyone.


If you want some guidance from spirit or are looking for some life or business coaching that is down to earth, check Lisa out! At the very least, subscribe to her newsletter. I’ve had a few readings from her and they’ve always been stellar.

    I like your metaphor with the threads in the tapestry of life.

    Btw, I have also had readings from Lisa. And I would like to let you know that it was via your blog that I met her. She left a comment on your blog and I was led to her website. Must have been in 2015. So, thank you for that.
