I had a long discourse recently with someone who called herself a prophet whom God speaks to. The conversation brought out the best and the worst in me, and I am grateful for the dialogue for what it showed me. It concretized a lot of beliefs that I already had. One thing that was brought up in our conversation was my last blog post about Nothingness, which brought out our different viewpoints.
First, I must say that I have difficulty with the notion of a self-proclaimed prophet who says that God speaks directly to her, since I attribute that to the likes of Jesus, Buddha, Moses, Muhammad and the like. (Perhaps that is just me.) But a prophet can also mean anyone who claims to be a healer, teacher, leader or foreteller of the future.
A prophet of an elevated state such as Jesus is humble. And having God-given power does not preclude being gentle and subtle. Being powerful to me means being comfortable enough in your own skin so that you don’t feel the need to continue explaining yourself after a disagreement.
Words mean different things to different people. They can be interpreted differently and can be misconstrued. There is the literal dictionary meaning, but there is also the figurative symbolic meaning as well.
Accept others for who they are. Everyone is on their own path of evolution, with their own truths. But we are also mirrors of one another, reflecting the good and the bad in each other. So when we see something we don’t like in another, we should reflect back to see if it is something we don’t like in ourselves.
This brings me to a final point, something that I talk about in Radiant Survivor: what’s really important in life. To me, a strong relationship with myself, with others and with Spirit are what is most important. If you have these, you will have abundance in all aspects of your life.

During her recovery, she gained much wisdom about what’s really important in life. Although she was a Reiki master, massage therapist and life coach as well as a corporate cog for many years, she realized that her passion was her books. Her hope now is that the messages of her books will be an inspiration for others, young and old. Visit her websites at www.ericatucci.com, www.sarahsgiftseries.com and www.radiantsurvivor.com.
