Holy Spirit, Who Are You?

by Rev. Peggy Rivera, O.M.C.

Peggy RiveraThe Holy Spirit is something that has always fascinated me. Who is the Holy Spirit, What is the Holy Spirit and how does the Holy Spirit relate to me? This is one of those topics that always gets me thinking.

On the one hand I have read that the Holy Spirit is the Entity that reminds us of God’s Love for us, the bridge of communication between God and His separated Sons. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit we find answers to life’s questions. We learn to see differently and forgive more easily. We learn to follow His lead in all situations. All we have to do is ask for guidance and be willing to hear his call.

I have read that He is part of the Holy Trinity of the God Head as in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. But I have also learned another truth about Him. His function is dual in purpose. We receive comfort from Him and we learn to see past illusions. I have also realized that the Holy Spirit is the part of us who never forgot who we are.

In the Clarification of Terms in the back of The Manual for Teachers on pg. 89 it say’s, “The Holy Spirit abides in the part of your mind that is part of the Christ Mind. He represents your Self and your Creator, Who are One. He speaks for God and also for you, being joined with both. …He seems to be a Voice, for in that form He speaks God’s Word to you. He seems to be a Guide through a far country, for you need that form of help. He seems to be whatever meets the needs you think you have. But He is not deceived when you perceive your self entrapped in needs you do not have. It is from these He would deliver you. It is from these that He would make you safe.” (C-6.4:1-3, 5-10)

So the way I see it, the Holy Spirit is joined with you and joined with God. He represents the unseparated Self that is part of the Whole. So really in the truest sense, the Holy Spirit is the part of you that is still part of God, the part of you that never left God. In other words in reality when you remember you are not the ego and body, your real Self is completely at One with the Whole. And God in all of His Glory and Love for us sent that higher Reality to keep reminding us who we are.

Sometimes we are led to people, places or things that will help us heal our thoughts, our hurts and our ego wounds. I feel that for sure that is the Holy Spirit’s guidance, and that we are led. All we need to do is be willing to heed the call. This is very comforting to me. I think of all the times I called upon the Holy Spirit to help me see differently. I think of how I felt the gentleness of the words I heard and the peace that always comes over me, and I feel so grateful to God for sending a Comforter to us. But it is even more wonderful to learn that we are already in our true Home. We are all complete when we awaken. Our job here is to awaken to that Reality here on earth. We can bring Heaven down to earth.

I experienced this recently when I was searching for a hypnotist. I wanted to use hypnosis for weight loss. But when I sat and talked with the hypnotist, I recognized she was sent to me by the Holy Spirit. The words I needed so desperately to hear came through her. Through her counsel I have gotten over my addictive tendencies toward food and I have learned to trust the Creative forces at work in my life to show me how to heal.

In my prayers I have had people show up in my life to support me in my healing. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not been led to this ambassador for my peace because I feel stronger than I ever have and I need this strength because my son was diagnosed with cancer late last year. I have relied on this inner strength that I receive from the Holy Spirit to keep reminding me that God is still here beside me and my son. We are Love, peace and beauty. Anytime I get afraid of the outcome, I call on the Holy Spirit to guide me through this maze. I am always reassured things will be okay, it will not be a cake walk but in the long run everything will be okay.

Thank you, Holy Spirit, for your loving guidance and thank you God for Loving us enough to send us this Comforter.
