What exactly is a prophet seer?
Is it some weird guy or gal who dresses strangely and appears to have lost his metaphysical marbles?
Is it a sharp suited spiritual salesman who prays or prophesies over a willing victim at the drop of a religious hat?
Thankfully, I believe the prophet seer to be neither.
Authentic prophet seers are, in my experience, fairly well-balanced individuals, gracious, unassuming messengers of Divine Love.
Most usually walk with a psycho-spiritual limp, the evidence of their ego struggles with Spirit Breath. Something harsh has been removed from their natural buoyancy and replaced with a drop of Heaven’s Essence.
Strangers in the world and yet grounded men and women with a compassion for all, the prophet seers are often walking paradoxes that can’t be easily understood by the trained dogmatic mind.
‘But prophets are no longer among us’, cries the religious dispensationalist, hurriedly turning to the Big Black book for argumentative back up.
I’d have to humbly disagree, having personally been helped by such prophetic embodiments along the Way.
The prophet seer is, I believe, a manifestation of grace, of Divine Love itself, for they pop up on the Journey Home when we need to see things as they really are. A dispenser of Transcendent Reality, if only for a few seconds, the prophet seer is a Divine paratrooper, one dropped into our illusory world to break us free from our painful psycho-spiritual attachments.
The prophet seer is one who passes on a message from the Love without bounds, the Source of the created order in which we find ourselves afloat, like a ship lost out on the ocean. Such a message bubbles up from somewhere deep within the prophet seer’s inner connection with the world of Spirit. Surprisingly authentic prophet seers are as much in the dark regarding the inner dynamics of psycho-spiritual revelation as the next man.
The prophet seer is probably not found on the religious shows that claim their presence. More than likely the one with spiritual insight is far from the crowd, yet deeply in touch with hurting humanity as its pain bombards the seer soul.
Prophet seers generally don’t hang around for long; they’re the spiritual pollinators within the Divine Garden, landing on the fragile flower of our lives to pass on little pockets of Unconditional Love. When we attempt to set up the authentic prophet seer as our resident guru, they usually run back into the desert places, to breathe in, once more, the gentle but tangible stillness of Divine Presence. The prophet seer’s psyche knows its Source and refuses to play the religious games of ministry with their hierarchical ladder climbing.
Bona fide prophet seers have something about them that folk can’t quite put their finger on; a presence that paradoxically appears somewhat distant whilst deeply intimate. Carriers of a genuineness that can’t be explained away by religious discussion or dogmatic declarations. God sent prophet seers just ARE.
I believe that Divine Love often sends its prophet seers to us in disguise, as we travel along the Way. When we fall under the relentless pressures of life, the Divine messenger will appear to come out of nowhere. Spirit Breath has no problems in sending along the right prophet seer at the right time. We’re only asked to tune out from ego chatter and listen for the transmitted Divine Resonance that wishes to heal our wounded psyche-soul.
When we search for a prophet seer we will not find one; Divine Love makes sure of that. When we seek Divine Love, the prophet seer will surely come at exactly the right time, usually when we least expect it. We cannot choose the messenger sent along, but we can choose whether to hear them or not. The legitimate prophet seer often deconstructs our psyche-soul prison in order to release us into a new level of freedom, yet always with the sensitivity and graciousness of Divine Love itself.
The intuitive prophet seer can be likened to a skilled surgeon whose razor-sharp, spirit scalpel cuts through the stubborn tumors of our ego defenses, often releasing a stream of healing tears, a sign that the Divine Touch has been delivered. Contrary to this, religious butchery is the tell-tale sign of the false prophet, the wolf in sheep’s clothing whose only desire is to get his teeth well and truly into the psycho-spiritual pockets of the unsuspecting seeker. Best to remember that charismatic vampires who suck the remnants of life out of a wounded soul are not the prophets seers of Divine Love, but often the slaves of their own insecurities and fears.
Those who easily dismiss prophet seers tend to lose the prophet seer’s reward, viz. a sensation of the Divine, the momentarily breaking in of Divine favor and reassurance that All is well. That is their choice. May the rest of us be open to the unexpected messenger, the one who comes and goes, carried away on the wind of Spirit Breath.
The Prophet of all prophets sends his servants to those in need. May Divine Love grant us the eyes to see and the ears to hear when they cross our path.
