What Is True Authenticity?

If you can actually answer that spiritual question posed here of “What is TRUE authenticity?” then the next question would be “Then how do you define SELF-realization?”  (Wow, shades of Paramahansa Yogananda’s revelations on SELF-REALIZATION)—which is from the same ‘self-awareness era’ that A.H. Almaas reminds me of when I first read his “Diamond Approach” book a few years ago.  He was an early pioneer of self/TRUE SELF-realization back in the 70’s-80’s, when Yogananda’s epic Hindu philosophy was fairly popular.

The analysis of TRUE AUTHENTICITY all comes back to answering the basic questions of whoamihand (1).jpgWho am I?  What is my TRUE identity? Am I strictly a physical being ruled by my biology and pathology? Or am I an elusive spiritual entity seemingly trapped in an earth-bound physical body—constantly yearning to return to my True Higher Source from which I came?

These are all good questions, and ones I’ve certainly been asking myself for the last 30 years.

These old gems are surfacing again now because I’m currently understandingnarcissismst.jpglistening to A. H. Almaas (founder of the Diamond Approach®), on “how narcissism became an impediment to spiritual awakening”. (It’s Day 7 of the same “Understanding Narcissism” series from Sounds True, like the Caroline Myss presentation from a few days ago.)  According to Almaas,

“when you move from simply experiencing your spiritual nature, to BEING it—meaning, when you move from somebody who is experiencing the spiritual experience to BEING the spiritual experience itself—THAT is self-realization. …

…The Self here is NOT defined by the MIND in your self-identity—meaning: You are NOT who you erroneously delude yourself that you are—your self-identity may not be a pure representation of WHO you really are, but may instead be an aggregation of who you have been told that you are, who you wish that you were, and who you often act like in actual daily life.  It’s your self-representation—NOT your true self-identity.

Tami Simon pins him down pretty well here trying to sharpen his focus: “OK, and what you’re saying is this constellation of self-representations, self-images, self-identification with my body, with my name, with my place in the world, that this is all inherently narcissistic, because it’s not actually essential, stripped down, not what I actually AM in this moment without referencing memories and self-representations.”

almaasquote.jpg

Almaas responds with “That is TRUE.  There is another way of looking at it,….it has nothing to do with instability and insecurity in the sense of self—a sense of false  identity. …now in spiritual work, the EGO is ultimately unstable and insecure because it is NOT who we really are.  So true challenges to our experience will show it (the EGO) to be fragile.  It may not be obvious in our experience, but when we come to something extraordinary or profound, the EGO is shaken. …because it’s NOT who we really are. …We are more than that.” …

…”In your old age, when you’ve lived your life and all that, when you come to the end of your accomplishments, where does your VALUE come from?  When you’re forgotten about, when you come to the end of what other people think of you, when you come to your actual self—where does your TRUE value come from?

For spiritually-realized people, value gushes out from inside.  It is inherent to the TRUE Self—that is SELF-REALIZATION.  The TRUE SELF is pure sense of preciousness, goodness, and beauty.  So its value is intrinsic and inherent. It does not need accomplishments.

…But in a realized person, those things are an expression of something deeper. And because of that, their actions and activities have a lot to do with benefiting others instead of simply benefiting oneself. ..So Ego is inherently self-centered. …But a realized person doesn’t think of others as different than oneself—they are naturally loving and caring, …not self-centered—self-focused.  …How do I feel? …I feel like my heart is full of some kind of richness, a richness, a fullness, a sort of sweetness, a kind of love, …a love that is an inherent higher value.  I, being ME, is PURE VALUE.  I don’t need others to see that value. I feel it—I am IT—which is a far cry from somebody who wants their value to be seen and acknowledged by others to feel a sense of value within themselves. … 

We are the SELF that is not created by the actions of time…. It simply IS—it infinitely exists as the ‘I AM’. THAT is SELF-REALIZATION—the direct recognition that I am the ‘I AM’. “

“Narcissism: the Evolution of Consciousness” per Caroline Myss

One of the nice things about Facebook (at least for those of us who do still use it) is the ability to receive info offers from sources that might appeal to you.  One of those info sources for me is “Sounds True” (founder is Tami Simon) who often provides FREE (with limited-time availability) psychology-related summits that I find both interesting and informative.  And if I think these summits are interesting enough for sharing, I usually provide a link here so that others can view the materials for themselves if they wish.understandingnarcissismst.jpg

Lately I’ve been listening daily to the latest Sounds True summit on “Understanding Narcissism” (Day 5 yesterday) within the 24-hour FREE time periods for each day: “Understanding Narcissism Summit with 20 leading experts in psychology and spirituality.”

The gist of this summit’s importance is “that as Americans, we are living in an era of narcissism: social media addiction, overall lack of presence and empathy, and increased societal division”; that and the current resident of the Oval Office demonstrates daily what being a Malignant Narcissist entails, so if you wanted to better understand him, here is the chance with this summit.  Overall I think it’s a timely and interesting presentation of 20 leading authorities on the subject matter of narcissism in general.  (And yes, some folks are more interesting than others to me.)

https://content.soundstrue.com/understanding-narcissism-summit-registration?fbclid=IwAR164Zqw4ukx4AIDDDNo3sqhDTSw9VlsVJwDmsiQxWJabeuJto8DKTBU2xM

Overall for the Sounds True folks, the focus is on first understanding what is really happening to us personally as well as culturally in this current narcissistic group dynamic, and then determining how best to shift the current narcissistic focus from ME to WE to mend the deep social divisions in our country.

Yesterday I was hearing Day 5’s presentations beginning with Caroline Myss, who is considered more so a spiritual teacher than the other psychologists and therapists carolmyss456.jpgwho had been presenting prior to her, and one I’ve been listening to over the last two decades.  Initially to me she seemed a strange choice for this particular summit, but then she began talking about overviews and the BIG PICTURE of why this era of narcissism is happening to us as a group consciousness, so I naturally perked up to hear her unique thoughts on the subject matter of “narcissism as being a stage of consciousness” that we are meant to go through in our own soul’s evolution.

A few sentences in, she shifted the entire summit for me from “how to treat narcissism and those affected by the malignant narcissist that they may work or live with daily” to WHY we as a society and culture are “exploring” the archetype of Narcissist right now; and then everything shifted in my head to better see the reasoning for those socially chaotic decades of my own life during the time period from late 60’s to the present.

According to Caroline during the turmoil of the late 60’s, youth felt “the need to break away to discover our individuality—our individual self—to launch on the journey of our INNER SELF—to find out what am I capable or—what am I made of?  The 60’s was a decade of REVOLUTION.  That sense of ‘I’m not going to take this anymore—you can’t tell me what to do—you can’t send me to war I don’t understand… Revolution was the first phase of breaking out of a Tribal thought-form—this is archetypal.  In the 60’s this template began, and it was collective. It exploded—it downloaded into our global soul and the REVOLUTION began (to separate ME from WE)….the sense of INNER SELF and PERSONAL was born. ..Now when we are in the revolutionary stage—the BIRTH of the SELF—you may know what you ‘won’t take anymore’, but you may not know what you WILL take—or what you DO want.  You don’t know what you DO want—all you know is that when you are revolting, ‘you know what you do NOT want’ and ‘what you will NOT accept’. …’I won’t take this anymore’…you are revolting against the control of a system or a person or a structure to control how you perceive reality.  That’s important for you to understand that. …What’s controlling your perceptions—what’s controlling your capacity to respond—to make choices. And another way for you to understand this is to reduce it—condense it—to something that makes sense to you—YOU DON’T WANT YOUR POWER CONTROLLED so you are revolting against those who try to control your ‘power to decide for yourself’.” 

Wow! Bingo! That’s it completely. It took this personal revolt from the accepted norm to get us to this point in awareness, but now we must evolve further to survive our own self-focus. She continued:

“Out of that revolution of the 60’s came the ‘collective permission’ to pursue something that never existed before , called the Inner Self. So we collectively gave birth to a hybrid EGO that we never had before. …We had a survival Ego but we never had this collective ‘Inner-Self’ focus. carolinemyssportrait678.jpg

…Another thought-form that made its way into the Collective at this time, which was a gargantuan and mystical truth but it came in kind of a ‘pop-camp’ package, was that WE CREATE OUR OWN REALITY. …Now while at a mystical level we participate in the creation of our own reality, ..that profound mystical teaching got translated into kind of a pop-culture way which says ‘I can choose whatever I want, I’m free to do whatever I want, and I create my reality, and there it is! …It’s not unlike the way the Churches took the profound teachings of Jesus and reduced them to the politics of the CHURCH so that you don’t even see those profound , mystical teachings that later had to come through Saint Francis of Assisi or Theresa of Avila. ..This mystical sense of spirituality that exploded within us in the 60’s—that produced this longing in us to find our own path—the Spirit that lit up our nuclear power base—it compelled people in the 60’s to seek what was named ‘this Spiritual Path.’  And that caused people to break away from the Tribe. …and the slightest Tribal shift is going to get a repercussive reaction from members of the Tribe.  So we formed our own Tribe—of Spiritual seekers—so we went from one traditional tribe to another Tribe of outrageous individuals who called themselves Hippies, … they had to strike out at the beginning of this movement of finding the Inner Self.  ..This movement eventually laid the groundwork for what we call Narcissism…the Narcissist—the you can’t tell me what to do—I need to find myself.  This is how the momentum began that literally launched this tremendous appetite and permission to go our own way. 

60’s blended into 70’s, Hippies grew up and had children of their own and gradually moved into the 2nd stage of revolution is INVOLUTION. … Once you say I don’t want this—you will always retreat inside—to look within to see what you Do want. …now you listen for the voice of the INNER SELF to know what you Do want. ..Now you’re in a different field of power—now it’s clear you have to make a choice. ..You are shifting from having been controlled to feeling a different voice.  The 70’s was an involution decade.  But what came out of that was exactly what came out of you…you start piecing together a path.  You start asking yourself ‘What do I need?’ and it always begins with the discovery and existence of your inner self. ..Now you realize that nothing begins without SELF-ESTEEM.  Self-esteem will become a part of this journey of you putting yourself together.  Of you developing a voice. ..Of you becoming a whole person. …Enter the 1980’s—The DECADE OF THE NARCISSIST.  And now we move into the stage of you becoming a Narcissist—the essential stage and the risky stage.  This was the decade that gave rise to Narcissism—the decade in many ways, in which we are psychically stuck.

This is why we need the Narcissistic Phase:  We need it because breaking away from the Tribal Journey requires a great deal of inner-self stamina, lest you get reeled back in. …

What’s going on here at a very different level is that we are all of us on a track of discovering the power of our own soul to participate in acts of creation—that in fact every word we say sets in motion an act of creation… that every thought results into setting energy into motion…that every feeling sets sparks of energy into creation…that every choice we make is this moment in time where we need to ascend to a level of inner knowledge where we truly understand that we are vessels of creative power and that is the nature of God within us and around us.  The nature of God is expressed through the creative laws of the Universe—that we are governed by these laws….

…That we are a species participating in a constant flow of all that is created. …We are becoming hyper-sensitive—hyper-aware of our own selves—we are becoming Narcissistic –but in fact it is a hyper-awareness of our own creative ability. …to impact our biology and impact the biology of others.  In this journey of becoming aware of the power within us, but it has brought us to the illusion of our own significance—but it is the power that is significant—not ourselves wielding it. …We need to become mindful enough to manage ourselves. Like a spiritual art-form to move through the dark side of Narcissism…where we embrace our shadow-side self—sense of self-importance—and move beyond it—the words we say are important in their power—but not that WE are important in saying them.  When we believe that WE are the center of the universe, is the dark side of narcissism.  When we feel entitled—‘blame, deserve, entitlement’ are the sources of your greatest suffering on earth.  We need to humble up. … We need to recognize and reclaim our true power, but not focus on our personal ability to do so. It’s not about us—it’s about the ability we all have to create with intention….

narcissism2.jpgThe task of the Narcissist is to ‘Get Over Yourself’. ..we need to mature into a level of self-awareness—self-management—self-accountability. You become a high-functioning individual …who returns to the human tribe with a sense of community, as you affect all others in what you do.  ‘What I do affects the whole.’  That is the new Theology. …My personal spiritual ecology is part of the ecological system of the Earth itself.  …That is the NEW Theology.  …What I do is then done to the whole.  Narcissism is the state of awakening to your own power, or NOT.  …See through the illusion of personal importance…. Healing occurs when you see beyond taking things personally.  The Universe is not personal.  It is archetypal.  I can choose to be detached from the personal and work instead with mystical truths. …

“Narcissists delude themselves into thinking that they can control the entirety around them.  They try to do that very thing.” …

“You’ve been given a life and a task and one of those tasks is to become fully you… and you have to trust ‘that journey of becoming fully you’ is what you were meant to do. But at the same time, that does NOT make you ‘special’—you are simply one of many journeying in their own ways—but we are always journeying together. You aren’t here by yourself. ..The spiritual path is about Truth—about you discovering what is REAL—and you are able to manage yourself and your power without compromising it by your shadow and your EGO-focus.  …The Spiritual path is about courage.  It’s not about your personal accomplishment—it is about finding your inner truth and then recognizing it as such. …”   ~Caroline Myss.

Overcoming the Fear of Death

When I saw this Alberto Villoldo blog-entry email ocfeardeath34.jpgon overcoming the fear of death, it triggered some memories for me of my own client situations where I became less the “curer” of the serious illness before me and became more the gentle “transition” coach for those clients—the one who helps them more peacefully transition from this life experience to the Spirit World they would soon re-enter.

As he mentions in the blog post, there were times in the two decades of my energy healing practice (REIKI, Shamanic, Hypnosis) when I was called in as a “last resort” with some new client to see if I could perform a miraculous healing and reverse their likely terminal situation.

Despite their desperate desire for reversing their dire situation, I never made miraculous-healing claims to them.  I simply acknowledged that no matter what reason initially brought that person to me, he or she was there before me for a specific need that maybe I could fill, even though it might not be for the same reason that they thought it would be.  No matter the outcome, I would do whatever I could do to help them with their current situation, and that we would face the illness together until they no longer needed or wanted me to help.

I can honestly say that I always did my very best for them—for ALL of them.  After our REIKI sessions, many, if not all, were lightened of negative/heavy energies and severe mental strain that were dragging their attitudes ever downward because REIKI has this amazing ability to simply lift their energy fields to higher frequencies, and to help them hold that wonderful sense of being at peace and feeling a greater sense of well-being. It also eased the pain that they were experiencing and often countered the extremely nasty effects of chemo or radiation.

While I worked on them, I played the most beautiful, ethereal music that I had in my collection and told them to simply relax into the music as we would soon be rising together to the highest level of healing and angelic assistance.  I even made free CD copies for them of that same music to play whenever they needed to bask in that wonderful higher ambiance—to help get them through the days until the next time we could be together to ride the higher energies again.

After only a treatment or two, no matter what process was going on with their body, jumpintospacefear54.jpgthey realized that a deep sense of peace still existed within them. And I lovingly stood by those who requested my continued presence, providing pure, higher frequency energy for them during our REIKI sessions.  While they still breathed life on earth, they could feel the eternal love and the most beautiful higher light that they knew awaited them in the next venue—and in knowing the genuine feel of deep inner peace, they did heal what could be healed within themselves and throughout their relationships while they still had the time on earth left to do so.

That is what Alberto refers to here in this article. Curing and healing are two different things—and sometimes facing our death with a calm grace and feeling deeply at peace inside is a far deeper soul healing than an illness cure can provide.

“2019 Oct 22 —ENDINGS, TRANSITIONS, AND BEGINNINGS: OVERCOMING FEAR OF DEATH  —  Alberto Villoldo, PhD

 https://thefourwinds.com/blog/shamanism/endings-transitions-beginnings-overcoming-fear-death/  

albertoblogondeath2019.jpg“Fear of death—whether death of the body, a way of thinking, a relationship, a situation, or a dream—must be experienced fully and consciously, and then overcome for new, healthy growth to take place. We master our fear of death when we understand that our nature is transtemporal (outside of time) and undying, continuing for all eternity. …

… At just 12 years old, Annie was the youngest cancer patient I had ever worked with. Her parents had brought her to see me in the hope that One Spirit Medicine would reverse her brain cancer. They had tried every conceivable medical intervention to no avail and were looking to me for the cure they had failed to find anywhere else. Annie had lost all her hair from chemotherapy and looked like a young, smiling Buddha as she sat in a big leather chair in my office.

I explained to Annie’s parents the difference between healing and curing. While curing is the elimination of symptoms, healing works at a much deeper level, treating the causes of the imbalance that lead to disease. And while a cure is the ideal outcome of a medical intervention, healing is the product of a journey in which all aspects of your life are transformed—even if you end up dying. You carry your healed self into your next life.

…I asked Annie’s parents to sit outside in the waiting area so I could be alone with her. After a few moments of small talk, she told me bluntly, “I’m not afraid.” She went on to say that angels came to her every night in her dreams—and even during the day at times. But her parents were deathly afraid for her. “I can’t tell them about the angels,” Annie said. But she thought I would understand. And I did. I sensed that the veils between the worlds were parting for Annie and that her spirit was preparing for the great journey home. But her parents were understandably determined to do everything possible to help Annie live, and this meant trying to get rid of her cancer by taking her to a string of specialists and finally, as a last resort, to me.

I’ve been a practicing shaman long enough to understand that death is part of life. And I have seen that some of my most successful healings consisted of helping my clients die peacefully and consciously. So I performed an Illumination on Annie, to help bring balance to her energy field and thus to her body. The Illumination is the core healing practice of shamanic energy medicine, in which the luminous energy field is cleared of the imprints of disease to help mobilize the body’s own healing systems. …”

The Beauty of Choice

Just talked to a close friend about her recent psychic reading from a woman she had never met and who had no idea about my friend’s life, history, family, etc. Sometimes those are the most accurate readings because the person doing the reading then has no tainted feelings about it one way or the other.

makeadiffchoicequote54

My friend’s impression of the ‘reading’ was that the lady was fairly accurate in stating some basic facts, but in others ways the woman made some erroneous ‘interpretations’ on what she might have been seeing or intuiting during the session.  (We all filter the world we see through our own biases and personal histories.  Good psychics recognize their innate tendency to judge and proselytize with a client, so they restrain themselves.  Not-so-good ones will tell you their opinions, instead of simply relaying the facts presented to them.)

One of the statements the psychic made even claimed that prior to our incarnation, we make contracts with our closest relations to come here and “act in certain ways” with each other.  She then said, “So don’t be unhappy with your (family-person) for how that person acted, and what you or she had to endure during that person’s life here because it was all preordained to play out exactly as it did.  She couldn’t have been any other way.”

To that I say BULLSHIT

We may incarnate with a set family of mutually-agreed spirits who are here to evolve and grow their own consciousness through interactions with each other, as well as through interactions with those beyond the initial family group, but HOW we individually act throughout our lives is a choice that we make every minute of every day that we breathe this earthly air. That’s what ‘free-will’ is all about. We ALL have choices in what we do and how we do it.

Every moment that we are alive involves a choice in how we respond to our surroundings and to all external stimuli; and those choices are both personally affecting to our own soul’s evolution and mutually affecting to others in our selected family groups at the same time (even affecting to the greater collective consciousness).

To live our lives daily, we ALL make choices, and each choice leads to other choices that diverge from that first choice like a tree branch growing new twigs that reach in ekrquotechoices54.jpgdifferent directions as the branch continues to grow up toward the sky. When you choose one particular branch of that tree of life to follow, you are pretty much limiting your upward growth potential to that branch’s original direction, otherwise you have to backtrack all the way down the original tree branch to the trunk base to then choose a different branch to follow because in this life, you’re not a leaping squirrel and can jump from this main branch to another main one and expect your life to simply shift for the better because of it.  It takes real work to reverse an unwise original direction.

It is possible and well worthwhile to change unwise original directions, but it won’t be easily done because we all make choices daily from early childhood onwards, and every choice leads to more choices until a general life direction is established. Then as we get older personal attitude, natural tendencies to rely on established habit, and other motivations to either face down each new challenge before us or to give up and succumb to them by numbing ourselves out with booze or pills, become the determiners of how far up that particular branch you climb.

Those are ALL CHOICES that we willingly make—that is NOT predetermination.  Period.

Yes, there are extremely difficult situations that we may have experienced in this life that might be excellent learning opportunities in disguise, BUT it takes a pretty enlightened person to view them as such. Otherwise, we simply view them as they were originally presented to us—just awful and senseless living environments that were hard for us to endure back then, and even harder to make sense of now.

But even with those previous takingchargeofmylifechoicehardships and tests of personal endurance, we still face a choice in how we respond to those memory challenges.  As a child, you might have been the unwilling recipient of your parent’s momentary or long-term instability, but as an adult who is capable of better understanding human weaknesses or frailties, you NOW have the choice in how you view those situations, and more importantly—you have the CHOICE in how you presently react to or not-react to those unpleasant memories.

Your offending parent made numerous choices in his or her life, and those choices may have adversely affected you as an impressionable and vulnerable child. While you had few choices at the time to handle those difficult childhood situations, you have many choices now to deal with the residual memories and tainted attitudes that may still haunt you.

That is the beauty of choice: Every moment presents you with a new one.

Despite what that psychic erroneously told my friend, happiness isn’t something predetermined for you prior to this life.

Happiness is a choice you make and a path that you decide to follow.

The Highest Form of Intelligence

I’ve mentioned previously that I have a deep respect for Jiddu Krishnamurti (of Theosophical Society affiliation).  So when I saw the image below with the quote “The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.” I had the buddhakrishnamurtiquote654.jpgreaction that not judging or evaluating all that is going on around the world at present, means that I certainly don’t have to worry about attaining that ‘higher-intelligence’ level.

Then the more I reviewed online Krishnamurti’s life work, I quickly realized how ludicrous putting an image of Buddha is along with one of his quotes.

He was very anti-religion because blindly following set beliefs often prevents one from finding TRUTH for oneself.

 

I maintain that truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or coerce people along a particular path.

This is no magnificent deed, because I do not want followers, and I mean this. The moment you follow someone you cease to follow Truth. I am not concerned whether you pay attention to what I say or not. I want to do a certain thing in the world and I am going to do it with unwavering concentration. I am concerning myself with only one essential thing: to set man free. I desire to free him from all cages, from all fears, and not to found religions, new sects, nor to establish new theories and new philosophies.[63] “  (J. Krishnamurti – Wikipedia)

krishnamurtiqu325 (2).jpg

He very much believed in self-realization—direct-connecting into the greater consciousness beyond this life and knowing TRUTH first hand from that direct access.

krishnamurtiqu512 (1).jpg

Try TRUTH for yourself.  It’s a refreshing change from our daily environment.

 

August Energies: Dancing Between the Old and the New

Of the ‘energy assessors’ that I follow, I thought Lee Harris had the better analysis for August 2019 energies, and felt that it needed to be shared.  So my suggestion is to simply visit the website mentioned below where the video and transcript of his August energy assessment is available for you. (But I did break out a few key points below for emphasis.)

augustlee harris23.jpg

Energy Update August 2019

“If you are feeling like you have been through the wringer the last month or so, you are right on track. August will in some ways be a lot calmer and smoother in terms of the waters of life. But that’s in preparation for September when the speed will kick off again, so this is a month where we enter a new phase for the rest of the year. So, many of you will feel like you’re coming to the end of a period of reviewing and clearing in August, and ready to move into a period from September onwards where more birth and foundational energy will be available. August itself will have a very different energy signature to the last 2 or 3 months; a period which brought with it many surprises, twists and turns, and unexpected events.

The main themes to focus on for August for this NEW PHASE WE ARE ENTERING are:

  • A NEW LEVEL OF PRESENCE
  • VISIONS, DREAMS AND EPIPHANIES
  • SELF-CARE BEING NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER

What I was shown for August is that we’re about to enter a very new phase which makes sense of the last month or two – the intensity, the push-pull, the high emotions, the moving from one state to another quite fast. There has been a lot of vibrational upshift happening, in an awkward, uncomfortable or sometimes messy way. But this has been in relation to (and preparation for) the new phase we enter now in August. So, for those of you who are looking for a reprieve from the intensity, and surfing the extremes of the past few months, it’s going to take some time for that ‘clearing’ phase to calm down somewhat. So, self-care and your self-care needs are going to continue to be of high importance….”

***

“…So is it a new awareness you are opening or a new nudge to actually ‘create’ that you are having? Important to discern the difference right now as it can be tricky to know which.

I bring this up because in August especially, these dreams, visions, epiphanies and ideas are going to continue to be strong as part of you reviewing your life, this world, and reviewing what’s next. We’re in a planetary wide review of life and consciousness itself, and it’s an experience that’s going on for everybody….

***

“…There are more people in emotional, physical or circumstantial need right now on the planet than ever before. You’ll notice this and you’ll notice that these struggles are often the catalyst to awaken people into their hearts, their consciousness. It’s a shame it has to happen that way. It’s far nicer when it happens without a pressured circumstance, but that pressure is a part of how consciousness is opening and spreading across the planet….

***

“…And remember that for all of us it can be quite challenging, as we dance between old parts of ourself and new parts of ourself. So remember that today is new – and everything that we’re about to move through is quite new. But most of us in this dance of the extremes that I was talking about, especially in the month of July, we’re going between old patterns, old ideas, old beliefs and then straight into new ideas, new beliefs, new experiences….”         —Lee  Harris

 

 

More on the Current Erratic Energies (Paul Selig on BTO Show July 9th, 2019)

Season19_Paul.pngJust listened to Paul Selig’s audio from Tuesday’s “Beyond the Ordinary Show” (John Burgos) and amazingly, he hits exactly the same points that I mentioned in my last post on these erratic energies that are affecting us; and it also expands on my previous posting (May 10th, 2019) pertaining to Selig’s latest book on the Upper World frequency which he (as channel) refers to as “the Upper Room”.

Basically again I’m just sharing the info I run across and providing access to the various sources of higher-frequency connections that are shifting us collectively and/or personally higher as we allow it.

You can form your own opinions of the sources and materials provided.  I’m not hard-selling anything—just making it available. If something mentioned here resonates with you then it provides a starting point for your own further pursuit.

https://bto19.s3.amazonaws.com/replay/Paul_Selig_replay.mp3

***

That being said, here is my take on this particular Paul Selig BTO talk:

  • How you serve is how you are most fully expressed as your True Self.
  • Our main problem as a collective consciousness is that we feel disconnected from our true Divinity, and we fail to recognize that same Divinity exists in ALL things.
  • As we live our lives in FEAR we stay in pure survival mode, fearfully separating ourselves from others and from the world around us.
  • What we are experiencing at present is the cleaning out of our old energies (memories) so we can shift higher in frequency and become our TRUE DIVINE SELF.
  • To release those stagnant and repressed energies, we must allow our old wounds to surface for re-examination from a more mature (less reactive) perspective so we then gain greater understanding of the learning opportunities each one provided to better understanding our own abilities, capabilities, and expanded awareness.
  • “Your experience will now be formed by your higher level of consciousness and likewise, you will project that higher consciousness (energies and perspective) into your world. You lift higher whatever you encounter.”
  • “Humanity is having a reckoning—and it’s a reckoning of the facing of oneself and one’s creations, and that everything that is known or created in fear must be re-known or recreated now in a higher way.”
  • Now is a time of great opportunity—the opportunity for change—BIG change. But we have to seize the opportunity to change or we will simply be left further behind because of our inclinations to default to previously set behavior patterns and to set ways of perceiving ourselves interacting with our world and with each other.
  • In essence we are re-birthing ourselves to a higher-frequency existence; and it is not pleasant to go through those labor pains of birthing ourselves anew.
  • We all are presently going through this unpleasant process that forces us to re-examine everything we once believed about ourselves—believed about who we were as loving human beings and about why we exist—even believed about how others were either important to us or not important to us.
  • The masquerade ball is now over, and we are being forced to DROP OUR MASKS; and when that happens we will simply be exposed for who we really are—standing there in all our nakedness—all our flaws—all our prejudices—all our imperfections—standing there not only in front of all others who might judge us—but mainly standing there in front of that reflective mirror to truly see ourselves for who we are pretending to be in our own judgments, and then to let it all go—let it go so that we can be our True Divine Selves without the ego attachment to superficial values and the need for social conformity. It’s not easy to stand naked in front of the mirror and really like what you see, but if all that you see in that mirror is Divine and ALL is simply another form of Divinity expressed in a more unique manner, then it is much easier to like it—and to love ourselves.
  • We are undergoing a process of personal destabilization to re-set our balance and comfort levels to a new higher frequency.turboceanwaves43
  • Do your best. Release your fear.
  • Release old wound energies. And allow this turbulent ocean of energy to wash over you, toss you about, and swirl you to wherever you next need to be.
  • The only thing we know for certain is that we won’t be the same being that we were prior to embarking on these churning seas.

I guess the only real solace I can personally offer is that you are not alone in feeling this inner turmoil—we all are going through this re-creation process in our own ways. Even Selig and Burgos both said that they were not having a ‘fun time’ during all this tumultuousness.  And I’m certainly not either. So again, if you are feeling destabilized (and Selig just said that he was feeling destabilized himself) know that you aren’t alone in this. It’s just something we all have to endure until the storm has passed. You simply have to ride it out.

My suggestion is that pen and paper may help to get your inner thoughts out for more thorough examination. You might try journaling to get better connected to what you are feeling and thinking day by day; or even to help release those unpleasant memories that might arise or to curb your too-active mind that won’t allow you some inner peace.

Put it on the page under your hand, and get it out of your head.  It helps.  Does for me.
