We Are Born of Water and Spirit #spirit #truebaptism #spiritualrebirth #water

July 25, 2017

Today, I met with a lovely young lady from the Caribbean, frontwho is highly intuitive, creative, a dancer, and a beautiful soul.  We share numerous points of connection, including the symbolism of rivers as divine flowing energy which channels through us.

After meeting with her in Silver Spring, Maryland, I rode the metro through DC, a long ride through the city and then back north to Rockville, MD. As we came out of the metro tunnel into Maryland, I heard Higher Consciousness tell me about the young woman and myself, “You are born of the same water and of the same Spirit.”  What a beautiful and meaningful metaphor for our shared spirituality!  Then, I realized that being ‘born of water and Spirit’ sounds like a metaphor for Christian baptism.

In Christian baptism, one (if immersed rather than sprinkled with water) goes under the water symbolizing dying to our old selves and rising to new life in Christ and being filled with the Holy Spirit.

What came to me on the metro, however, is that true spiritual baptism means completely letting go of the ego self, emptying ourselves, and allowing the flow of divine Spirit, or Divine energy-consciousness, to flow to us and through us to bless the world.

Now that’s a baptism worth believing in!  Being baptized with the flow of Spirit to us and through us can happen anytime and all the time, if we let it.  Of course, that is the point of baptism, to allow the Spirit to flow like life-giving water into the world to cleanse us, heal us, and make us ALL whole.

May it be so – and let the rivers of living water flow!

Love and Light,

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am an energy healer, intuitive life coach, author, meditation teacher, and inspirational speaker. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, or Facetime; please email me at: carol.dodson.richardson@gmail.com to schedule a session. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, my personal vision is to be a healer and guru-doula, empowering people to experience and to give birth to the divine within themselves, individually and in community. Perceiving a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness orChrist-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
