Choose Your Reality and… Get Real!

by Suzanne Giesemann

I began my spiritual journey after the death of my step-daughter, Susan. Since then, my view of life and my understanding of reality have expanded far beyond the concepts I held for the majority of my life. I had hoped that this life isn't all there is. I had believed there is more than meets the eye and that all we see is organized and coordinated by a loving Creator. I don't believe that anymore. I KNOW it's true. Belief leaves room for doubt; knowing comes from personal experience.

My personal experience has come from giving over 400 private readings as a medium, sharing evidential information from those who have passed with their loved ones who sit across from me.

My personal experience has also come from channeling information from another dimension in over 60 group sessions. My KNOWING that this life is not all there is comes from my personal experience of other worlds in daily meditation.

Those experiences have changed me irreversibly, and that's all right with me. I have no desire to go back to the emotional roller coaster ride I used to experience. I'll take peace over turmoil any day. My experiences have helped me to see the essence of spirit in everyone I meet, and I'll take love over fear and judgment any day.

These changes haven't been without adjustment. I set the newspaper aside the other day after reading a story steeped in negativity. I turned to my husband and admitted that it's not easy walking in two worlds at once. When you regularly experience realms where love is felt and expressed as the principal emotion, it's sometimes a challenge to soldier on in this one.

It's easy to get dragged down by violence on TV, in movies, and in the news. It's easy to get discouraged by people who haven't yet realized we are all spirit beings here and now. So I've made a deliberate choice to see only goodness. Does that make me a Pollyanna? Yep. Call me naïve, but I like feeling happy and loving no matter what.

A good friend recently shared similar loving views of "Why can't we all just get along?" with her cousin. He wrote back to my fellow Pollyanna and told her “to get real." To him, reality is a harsh, dog-eat-dog world where it's every man for himself.

The question is: What is real? As I continue to experience first-hand, there's more than one reality.

Perception determines our experience of reality. If you perceive this world as dangerous, evil, and filled with hate, then that will be your reality. If you focus on the positive, that will be your experience.

Nobody ever said this life is easy. It's hard to stay positive when folks around you aren't. It's hard to see the bright side when journalists sell newspapers by ignoring good news, politicians win votes by slinging mud and Hollywood continues to blow things up just for fun. Being peaceful and loving is a choice in this realm of duality. When you make the choice to focus your perception on the expression of love, your whole reality shifts.

So go ahead. Get real!

But first decide: which version of "real" will you choose?
