I’ve come to realize that the beliefs, deep emotions and feelings that I’ve experienced at certain times in my life, seem like they are very old – maybe even before this lifetime. I continue to experience emotional events in my life that mirror the pain and suffering from my past – until I break the cycle and heal those old wounds. Have you ever thought to yourself: My God, this grief and pain I’m feeling is way more than the situation calls for! I certainly have, and it’s what got me to look deeper into what was happening beneath the surface of everyday cycles.
Humanity is waking up and on an ascension path – but it’s not about love and light as the new age would have us believe. As a matter of fact, all of humanity unknowingly experiences emotions and triggers that reach way beyond their present situation. Some of these more painful events can even be used against us. There is a lot of work to be done. That’s why getting a bigger picture is so important.
We are all trying to wake up and it ain’t easy.
What I am describing is called the Dark Night of the Soul. The old wounds within us need to be acknowledged and felt – there is no way around it. The more you know about the Dark Night of the Soul – the better off you’ll be.
The good news is that any unwelcomed pattern or event we may find ourselves in presently, can be used as a platform from which to grow. But we must get high enough to see the bigger picture. Getting wrapped up in drama only serves to make the pattern deeper and more destructive.
The higher perspective says: I can use my present drama to help me tap into these deep wounds so I can feel and release them without a story or blame.
The ego says: Same old drama, different day. My boss sucks. I need a new job.
There is a path that leads the way out of destruction and into a deeper understanding and healing if we are willing to walk it.
That path is the path of truth. The following is an excerpt from a recent newsletter, Alignment to Natural Law, by Lisa Renee on Energetic Synthesis:
By clearing the negative ego and attachments to outcome, we have the ability to perceive what is actually happening. To recognize the pattern and the meaning that is associated with those patterns, that form into the larger picture which allow us to connect the dots. Gaining higher consciousness in which we choose to live in truth, means that we are aware of accurate events and what is actually taking place around us. We are willing to see events as they actually are, and not what we want them to be, or wish they were.”
This is not an easy path. It requires a lot of self-inquiry, being nonjudgmental, and going deep, feeling things your ego has long been avoiding feeling. You must have a strong desire to free yourself from “the story” that serves the ego. My story used to begin with: “I hate my mother, I hate my father.” No kidding, that was the first sentence of my long, long, story about being a victim. I gave it up through forgiveness.
There are many layers, and sometimes growth feels like one step forward, two steps backwards. One day happy, three days depressed. But it does get easier the more you take the higher road of compassionate witness, observing it all from a higher perspective without attachment to an outcome.
The key is to not identify with your destructive thoughts because they are not who you are!! The guilt I felt and feelings of unworthiness left the door open for bullies and victimization. I believed everything was my fault and I was unworthy of love. It was my identity so my world HAD to reflect this belief.
Thoughts are things! And these things manifest!
Once I dis-identified with these destructive beliefs and saw them from an observer perspective by moving them outside of myself – my life changed. Understanding that most of what I was feeling and experiencing was beyond my consciousness, also helped me achieve the bigger picture.
Make it a daily practice to observe your thoughts. That’s the beginning. And ask for help if needed. The Law of Response states:
I invite you to check out Energetic Synthesis and the recent newsletter of the Principles of the Natural Laws. This knowledge is invaluable when you are on a path leading out of destruction into freedom!
Godspeed! Don’t ever give up! You can do this!
