I loves me some Rev Deb!
What? You don’t know who she is? Holy Cow! Where have you been?
I have only recently come upon her myself but oh, do I love her!
She founded InnerLight Ministries, an omni-faith ministry located in California. She’s also been a HUGE proponent of civil rights legislation and particularly LGBT issues.
One of the most compelling speakers I’ve ever listened to for sure.
Here’s some of the official bona fides from her site:
Rev. Deborah L. Johnson is the founding minister and president of Inner Light Ministries, an omnifaith outreach ministry dedicated to teaching the practical application of universal spiritual principles to all of life’s circumstances.
She holds a vision of oneness, beyond creed and doctrine, and feels particularly called to heal the sense of separation between those adhering to conservative and progressive ideologies.
She is founder and president of The Motivational Institute, an organizational development consulting firm specializing in cultural diversity serving the public, private, and non-profit sectors. As a dynamic public speaker, she is known for her ability to bring clarity to complex and emotionally charged issues.
But what I love most about her is that she is a beautiful channel for the Divine. (Or The Infinite, as she calls it.) She brings through Divine Wisdom in a way that resounds so strongly with me that I could fly up on that vibration and just float away.
And I long to do what she does.
When she channels, I can feel it.
I can breathe it.
I can’t really explain how and even if you listened, you might not experience it the same way. Channeling is a really interesting experience, actually. It’s about just moving your monkey mind out of the way and allowing the wisdom to come through. No clue what lifetime(s) taught me how to do what I do but I can do it in my sleep.
But to do THIS??
David Neagle says that no desire exists in you without the skills necessary to fulfill that desire. For example, I really have no interest nor desire to be a brain surgeon. According to this axiom, it follows that I don’t have the innate skills to do that. (And I really don’t! Do not be putting your brain in my hands, yo!)
But I am already an amazingly clear channel for Spirit Guides.
And the desire to step into it bigger feels like it’s bubbling up around the edges. I don’t really know where that desire is going to take me, should I surrender into it.
And lately, I’m wondering if I even have a choice as it’s calling so strongly. Heck, today I actually considered leaving here and going to study with her in California in their Practitioner of Higher Consciousness program!
(I know, right? How wild would that be?)
For now, though, I’ll start opening my heart to this and see where that leads. And who knows? Maybe you’ll see me one day bringing through beautiful, high vibrational guidance from the Infinite that helps someone change their whole life. (It sure would change mine!)
(How’s this for a non-whiny post? Pretty good, eh?)
PS: The title of the post came from a channeling she did recently where it was said that if you were listening on that call “More is required of you” and I keep asking “What is the MORE for me?” – is this the answer? I don’t know (yet).
