Get right within the self, within the multifaceted being that you are. It is the only way to experience peace and calmness. Pull together all that you are, your multifaceted inner self and your multilayered outer self. Getting right within the self means bringing all that you are into right alignment, into alignment with truth, honesty, and inner knowing, with the voices that teach and guide you and tell you what you already know. Pay attention to what they say and be honest with yourself and with whom shall rule, for it is the time now for the rule of the good, within and without. The new path of goodness has been revealed so many times already. Get right with that and all else will naturally fall into place. Take your first brave step toward the good within yourself and see what happens to everything else. You will be surprised, but another part of you will not be surprised at all, for it will know that it is exactly as it should be. As within, so without.
Stresses are simply uncontrolled influences. Ego fights them for control, but spirit has a better idea. Turn to spirit to gain control of your inner influences and what tries to control you by taking command in a new way, by deciding how you want to feel, what you want to indulge in, and what is no longer important. You have the power to walk away from that which is not good for you. You have the power to moderate your inner world by getting innerly calm, by regulating your central nervous system with the breath of spirit, by bringing into your life the positive energy of loving kindness. You have the power to be what you yearn for. Be what you seek by acting with loving kindness, by deciding to let go of old belief systems that no longer work for you and constructing a new flowing lifestyle based on spirit, that which more fully works for you and suits who you really are. You have the power to reject the old and bring in the new.
Don’t be afraid. You are not doing anything wrong. It’s just time for a new approach. Ask spirit for help. Guides are waiting. Loving kindness is waiting. Ask for help. Question spirit. Test spirit. Ask it to prove itself to you. It won’t mind. It loves you and only seeks to help you. Ask for spirit’s help. You won’t be disappointed.
Keep a calm and steady heart. No matter the storm that approaches, no matter the turmoil that brews, no matter the worry that seeks a home. Do not become infected. Keep your heart strong, your mind at ease, and your nervous system calm. Breathe into your heart and steady yourself, for in the long run this time too shall pass and in the end all will be well again. This you already know at a very deep level. Pay attention to that deeper knowing, count on it, and you can weather through any storm. Keep a calm heart.
In our audio channeling today we are inspired to stay connected with our spiritual self as we take our spiritual journey through life. If we get in alignment with spirit all bodily, physical issues will get in alignment too. Thus, we will be in alignment with the wishes of our spirit, who is constantly trying to get in touch with us, and the best way to do that is through the body. Are we paying attention?
Last week’s blog culminated with the adjacent image of the dweller contained within the angel, sitting in quiet repose upon a tree stump. The eyes of the angel reflect the agony of the basement dweller, imprisoned within this flighty, heavenly angel, as well as the sadness of the angel, weighted down to Earth by the dweller’s dense energy. Nonetheless, a hint of innocent companionship is felt in their tentative thinking man pose.
This stage of quiet containment reflects the moments in our habitual cycles when we are able to hold within ourselves the dweller’s impulse to action. This action of restraint, nonetheless, generates a condition of great tension within the body.
Inwardly, this is the experience of a combined wild fire and flood, as an electrical charge, called anxiety, races at lightning speed through the central nervous system, accompanied by a clenching vascular action that forces blood to rapidly flush throughout the body. Both the neurological and pulmonary body systems seek immediate discharge from this unbearable tension through physical release, be it through raised voice, aggressive body movement, or outright body flight into spirit, clinically defined as dissociation.
As pictured above, the ego Soul can alternatively choose containment over physical release and, with the support of the angel spirit (SOUL messenger), land in the eye of the body storm, at the heart center, which enables it to hold fast to the knowing that positive transformation will result from this right inaction. Additionally, expansive love is available from this center, enabling greater acceptance of the opposite planes of the self, activated and in conflict in its present struggle.
In a nutshell, the technology employed here is to not take the lid off the pot of water on the stove as the heat rises and reaches the boiling point where energy transitions to a new state, from liquid to gas. In human terms this can be likened to kundalini rising from one chakra to another, opening one up to a new plane of consciousness.
For instance, kundalini rising to the heart chakra opens consciousness to the expanded awareness of a non-egocentric perspective of the world. Rather than the perspective of a willful battle with opposing forces, characteristic of the solar plexus chakra, ego Soul at the heart chakra sees the interconnected value of all things. As well, right action, action in alignment with the high SOUL, becomes obvious and then ego can calmly, from a deep state of detachment, execute appropriate behavior.
The Shamans of Ancient Mexico taught the practice of utilizing the petty tyrants in one’s life to achieve this enlightened state of awareness. Petty tyrants are the people and situations in our lives that trigger our anger in defense of our self-worth. Essentially, these are the people that offend us. Being offended evokes the survival fight reaction at the lower chakras, particularly at the solar plexus.
Although, at a certain period of ego development it is necessary to battle, i.e., confront one’s oppressors, to be frozen at this level leaves one permanently vigilant, tense, and dominated by a negative attitude. Shamans practice refusing release of their instinctual reactions to their petty tyrants. In fact, they allow themselves to be used by their tyrants, which causes the resultant contained emotional energy to rise. As that emotional energy rises it burns through the web of feeling offended at the solar plexus level, while purified awareness rises to the clarity of the heart chakra.
From this detached place of not taking anything personally, Shamans gain clear knowing of right action to subdue the tyrant, not from a place of anger but from objective right action. I’m reminded here of the elderly Aikido master who offers the hostile passenger his seat to most efficiently resolve a tense situation on a crowded train. Another example is the Dalai Lama who admits that one must defend oneself, even perhaps having to shoot someone in defense of one’s life, but all the while holding them in a place of loving compassion.
Gaia teaches us this practice of detachment now, as her own kundalini energy rises in our experience of global warming. Her evolutionary objective is to reshape the Earth, with survival practices emanating from the plane of the heart chakra. At core, Gaia’s intent can be summed up as a release from the Dweller-based economy of survival—that which has mismanaged and exploited Earth’s resources—by moving into a Spirit-based alignment with SOUL. This transition will shift humanity’s primary emotional operating system from fear and vigilance to interconnected knowing and right action, based on the true needs of the planet.
The journey of ego-soul through a lifetime on Earth, ultimately culminates in Soul, as energy body, exiting the physical body at the time of death. The trajectory of that Soul’s journey is to bring its experience and knowledge from its just-lived life home to its greater SOUL in infinity. That continued journey may require many stops at other levels of experience, perhaps even subsequent return trips to Earth to fully solve and release attachment to its former life.
A willingness to fully explore one’s life while here, particularly through the practice of containment, allows kundalini, the active energy of the Soul, to rise and open to a fuller and more fulfilled exploration of life while here, and a more direct journey to SOUL when it’s time for that definitive journey.
