What does the phrase ‘being in spirit’ mean? Does it mean that you become aware that you can communicate with your spirit? Or does it mean that you realize that you have a spirit? In actuality, it means being in-spired (in spirit).
The only thing that separates you from the knowing that you are spirit expressing itself as a body is your mind. You react to external and internal cues from your environment and it pre-occupies your consciousness with a mental-physical jousting match that seems so real that you blindly accept it as true.
In reality, from the energy exchange in themicro-tubules in your brain cells to the words you speak and the actions you take you are mostly reacting to stimuli that you become aware of in your mind.
Your conscious mind is a construct of the energy exchange resulting in consciousness in your brain. It filters reality through the pre-programmed beliefs in your subconscious mind and believes it is either in control or not in control of one’s interaction in their environment.
When you are in spirit you are experiencing being in the now. It is letting go of distractions and interactions outside of you to experience the knowingness and beingness within.
Being in spirit means that you allow the Spirit of God to guide you and direct you by getting out of your own way. It is letting go of the mind’s perceived control of your life and coming to a state of complete trust inGod; in other words, Divine Allowance.
Allowance is the complete opposite of resistance. It is a state of mind and heart where you accept everything just as it is and you don’t attach any emotional baggage to it. It then peacefully and surreptitiously passes through you without affecting your knowing of Divine truth.
Resistance is a state of mind and heart where you reject things based on what you ‘believe’ they are and actively fight their perceived influence on you. It is OK to reject things that are counterproductive to your being; it is NOT OK to add energy to them by fighting or resisting their apparent existence.
Being in spirit is choosing to proact instead of react. For you to be in control of fulfilling the Divine desires in your heart you have to let go of your perceived control and become ‘in spirit’. Live in the now and live in peace everlasting. Aren’t you worth it? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
