Joan of Arcadia was probably my all time favorite television program…at least in my adult years. And it wasn’t the plot so much that I liked. I mean, most of us have had issues with boyfriends, high school and family stuff. It was the talking to God thing Joan did; and God talking to her. And the fact that God just showed up in anyone’s body.
It made me start thinking. About the time Joan of Arcadia was on, television really started opening up to the spirit and ghost thing. Starting out with the television series, “Medium,” and the spiritual gifts that are given to some of the characters in “Joan of Arcadia,” I noticed there were many people (real world people) starting on the search of their own spiritual gifts. Now there are more programs on the air waves, like Ghost Whisperer and others on cable stations that deal with psychic children, animal communicators, ghosts and hauntings. Folks are really waking up to the “ether world”.
Now it is important to pay attention to who or what you are becoming aware of. Discernment of Spirit has been mentioned in the first book of Corinthians (12:10) of the Bible. It is probably one of the best suggestions that God has ever given: to discern spirit.
In the last “Joan” show of the series, discernment is talked about solely as a means of recognizing spirit entities. However, it goes much deeper than that. It is not only recognizing spirit entities, but knowing the quality of intent each entity has. Thus, knowing if it is of a Godly (good) nature or not.
Being a Spirit Medium, I have first hand knowledge of its true meaning, which I’d blog about another time. But in the show, Joan knows there is something wrong with the energy of Ryan Hunter, the stranger who rescued Adam and is the president of the Citizen’s Watchdog Committee. She knows it even without God coming out and telling her.
God, of course, is the only one who has the right to judge, but still does not. He is willing to let things be what they are.
Joan has always been intuitive, psychic and mediumistic. Otherwise she would not have been seeing and talking to God or her young deceased friend from the previous season, Rocky. Joan’s mother, Helen even began to recognize her own psychic abilities.
This type of thing quite often happens when the energy of a physical place starts to be charged with emotion or major change is taking place. Many people who are sensitive will be much more aware of spirit energy. I believe this happens to give warning and an opportunity to work towards balance. A great time for prayer, reflection and love.
In our world today, the energy is charged with emotion and change. And since television has put so much paranormal (or is it just…normal?) activites on for us to see and relate to, many of us are becoming aware of the thing that has always been ours: psychic/medium abilities.
We’ve just been too busy with our lives to pay any attention. But think about it: if your best friend buys a white volkswagen, all of a sudden all you see around you are white volkswagens. In reality, they have always been there~just out of your awareness.
The same for psychic abilities. You’ve always had them, just too busy to be aware of them. Then when so many new programs are coming on television with spirits and ghosts as the themes, you start picking up on it.
But let’s be clear: just recognizing a spirit isn’t all there is to it. You must recognize how that spirit’s energy is. What does it feel like? Is it comfortable or edgy? If not bringing uplifting vibrations to you, then do not entertain it. Tell it to go away. You don’t have to accept it around you. You are in charge of your own energy space. Then think on higher, loving thoughts.
