Have you ever had a felt sense of knowing. A deeper sense about something or remembering things that should be unfamiliar but aren’t? Some resonant memory, “I have been here before, I remember this.”

We all have. 

This for me is remembrance. Remembrance speaks to a sense of knowing something but not always why we know it. It is often the first step on the path towards connecting with Spirit. 

It is so interesting that many languages have 2 words for knowing: French, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese, Swedish, Finnish and Hungarian to name a few. One word describes knowing something factually and the other is to have a deeper understanding and wisdom.  In English we have lost this distinction when we gave up the old English word “witan” centuries ago. 

But when we ‘know’ something, we really ‘know’ it. It is not something we experience intellectually. We feel it in our blood and bones. You hear the resonant call “I have been here before, I remember this”.  And that knowing is at the heart of remembrance.

The term Gnosis means “knowledge” in Greek. It refers to the type of knowledge that one has that is based on one’s own practical experience. The Gnostic path asks you to go within and remember the inner teacher. The inner Guru. The inner divinity that resides within each and every one of us. 

It is in this space that we acknowledge the deeper knowledge and wisdom of who we are. It is an invitation to empty the expectation of the mind and remember the essence of you. 

So the next time you have that inner feeling of knowing, close your eyes and take a few deep, diaphragmatic breaths. Feel what arises from the depths within you and listen. 

Your divine self is speaking directly to you. What is s/he saying?
