Intra Communication and the Holy Spirit

Rainbows and the Holy Spirit

Rainbows and the Holy Spirit

Good Evening, God!

C. S. Lewis said that two Christians have ten times the power of one Christian. I experience the reality of that truth every time I drive up Tantalus to see my spiritual director, June. As we sit together — consciously aware of Your Presence — I am helped to see myself and hear myself.

Hearing myself is hard, God. But just yesterday I heard a phrase that helped me understand why it’s so hard. Apparently, we have a plethora of systems or modules inside us. Some are distributed on the left or right side of our brains and some are distributed across the brain. PLETHORA! I looked it up and it is a “superabundance, an excess.”

Sigh, sometimes that is exactly what it feels like, God. Too many Modules trying to decide who’s in charge right now. It’s like a log jam with No One In Charge and Nothing Getting Done. Golly, I thought it was hard enough just to juggle all the diverse Roles we women manage. Now I realize the roles are just the surface.

Who's In Charge?

Who’s In Charge?

The phrase about my inner plethora is from the book Who’s In Charge?, by Michael Gazzaniga. I’m only on chapter 3, God, but, I have this funny feeling that the author is going to tell me that I (the one talking with You) am the one in charge.

I do know that ever since I “agreed” to a Grand Alliance with my Warrior Spirit that she has been very helpful. Then January 1st I “turned down” the hyper-vigilent Critical Spirit and gave myself permission to Make Mistakes. Because I was allowed to “make mistakes” I was able to navigate the tedious and err prone path of getting my website up.

So, I am learning HOW to work together with my Plethora of Inner Peoples. But, please, God, keep on helping me!
