So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria; God, life and a small black dog

I recently picked up a very powerful book about being a Holy Seer, and am reading the book enthralled and almost scared.  We all look at the Supernatural, even secular people look at ghosts and spooks.  I’d love to see more of this dimension and express this in writing, my role model being Elizabeth Goudge where the spirit world peeps around the corners of all her words and imagery.   Some say fasting and prayer are ways into this and I agree, fasting does sharpen all your senses and maybe operates the brain in a new way to see other ways.  Like wise meditation hones your thoughts and thinking in new directions.  All of these in my own pathetic way I’m trying to do more of!  One thing that this book most impressed me was that we don’t have 5 senses, we have 15!  Firstly  for example smell. A flower smells like a flower – this is our physical reaction. But his smell initiates memories or associations, our soulish sense.  Then there is the spiritual smell which I found more difficult to get my head around, in the heavenly realms there are scents and smells, the author talks of smelling flowers when praying.  Fascinating and awe-inspiring!

Then it came to me about the Internet.  It doesn’t actually physically exist – except maybe on a computer somewhere. Yet I have an invisible connection now with people through my blog, who I’ll never meet or speak to in person but we can communicate in messages and pictures.  If we can do this, what would it be like tapping into the real spiritual world around us?  It’s there throughout the Bible and Paul talks about our daily battles with entities and kingdoms, not to mention out support in Angels.  Wow.  And there’s one thing I find great, in heaven there will be horses – see the Old Testament visions!!

  1. I’d have a chat with your vicar or someone who knows what he’s talking about first…




    • Hey, don’t panic!! Its only because I’m reading this book, and God only gives the gift of being a Holy Seer to a few people and it certainly isn’t one of my giftings. I just want to get a more spiritual depth into my writing. I’ve entered all my photos in two competitions on the river Mur, will know on the 15th, in one there was only about 10 entries -it was online and they were mostly aerial photos. We’ll see!
