Keep moving in a positive direction, keeping the flow of your energy moving in an upward spiritual ascent. Protect it and keep it safe from outside negative, needy, or intrusive energies. Protect yourself so that your diligent progress in a positive direction is not interrupted. Keep safe from energetic depletion and negativity whether from outside or inside. If your energy becomes compromised so does your path of heart. Protect yourself so that your intent remains strong and your progress steady. At first, it may require nerves of steel and withdrawal from outer influences as you make incremental progress, but pretty soon you will be moving along in leaps and bounds. Change is good!
Let not the old self usurp the good progress made or pull you back to old ways, but take all that you have learned one step forward now with the new self more firmly implanted within and more expressive without. See clearly the difference between the old and the new and know that you have done good work. Hold onto the new self, and know also that the more secure you are in this new self, the better off you will be. So, begin each day with this self in the lead, and reassert often your commitment to your new path of heart and to this new self. You can’t go wrong!
Lessons come in many forms and many ways, served up covertly or directly, subtly or profoundly, slowly or quickly. But however they come they are meant to aid you on your journey, helping you to face the key issues in your life, helping you to remember who you truly are, a spirit self in a human body who knows you fully and has a dedicated plan for you, and that plan is for you to evolve. No experience is any greater or worse than another, for all experiences have this same intent in mind, all are for your greater good. Remember this and your journey through life this time will evolve you another step along on your spirit’s journey, for it is your spirit’s journey that matters as much or more than your physical body’s journey. Entwined as they are, the spirit’s journey is by far the more important.
Often, what is experienced as traumatic in the moment becomes the seed of great growth and liberation when viewed from a deeper perspective at a future time.
Maya, a central concept in Hindu cosmology, is considered illusion at the level of everyday life, as events in the moment veil the fuller picture beyond the container of space and time. Yet, at the fully transparent level of the highest spiritual plane, Maya radiates as ultimate truth. The key to accessing ultimate truth is to revisit experience from the fullest and deepest perspective.
Thus, everything that challenges us, no matter how terrifying or painful, ultimately has the potential to lead us into deeper truth as we trod upon our path to heart. However, to benefit from this gift we must allow ourselves to review what we have already lived, by viewing it with a ruthlessly open and conscious mind and heart.
In viewing from a different perspective, we can release the emotions that have protectively shielded us and view the deeper truth that lies beyond our limiting beliefs. With this, the protective chaff falls away, as we now have direct access to the seed of our fuller knowing and future possibility.
One great antagonist in 2020 is Covid-19. At the level of everyday human life, its impact upon the world has been devastating. As a world, we hope to neutralize its impact upon us, even as I write. Many lives have been lost at the physical level, and many livelihoods and life plans have been radically changed through the lethal invasion of this virus.
Beyond personal impact, however, is the interruption it is causing to the energetic flow of the planet. Travel is severely limited. Gatherings of humanity, even the smallest of nuclear families, are suspended in physical space and consigned to connection only at the vibrational level of virtual reality.
The next higher vibrational dimension of humanity, the soul level, operates via thought and feeling, in its energy body, independent of the physical body. Though the virtual reality experience during the pandemic has largely been dependent upon human technology, it has also challenged the physical human being to find mental and emotional connection in non-physical contact. This has been a tremendous crash course on spiritual contact beyond the human body.
Of course, we all crave physical contact, as we also exist in human form. However, we are being ushered, via virtual reality, into another dimension of our human potential. When this potential is more inwardly developed, via the discovery and practice of innate psychic powers—such as intuition, conscious dreaming, and telepathy—the door is opened to unlimited possibility for travel and connection beyond physical reality.
Within the physical dimension, the quality of connection is spiritually enhanced to include greater movement to the heart, in a deeper experience of abstract love; that is, love beyond strictly physical attachment. The legacy of Covid-19 has launched us forever into a greater world of energetic possibility to satisfy our deeper mental, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Donald Trump has certainly presented as both central protagonist or antagonist, depending upon your perspective, in 2020. In fact, as I write this blog, it remains unclear what is actually going to happen at the completion of his current term.
Regardless of one’s perspective, Donald Trump has championed the fact that reality is truly relative. He has shown us that it is consensus of agreement that actually generates a reality. What we believe is true is more powerful than objective reality.
This is most powerfully demonstrated via the placebo effect in scientific medical trials. Many a person has actually been cured of a disease because they wholeheartedly believed they were being administered the curing agent, even if it was actually a placebo sugar pill. Though medicine may dismiss the change as mere placebo, cure is cure! The power of belief can concretely transfigure physical reality.
The power of the subconscious to change our mental and physical conditions is the essence of hypnosis. What we tell ourselves, often via forgotten or unknown subconscious programs, is what we manifest.
Donald Trump, as master hypnotist, has demonstrated the power of repetitive speech to determine one’s belief system. The use of affirmations, mantra, prayer, and suggestion to shift belief and behavior is extremely powerful. The collective massing of such efforts, when attuned to the common good, can spiritually advance the planet.
Donald Trump has also embodied the ego at its me-first zenith, which is a reflection of the collective planetary ego of our time. Every individual human must face that the dominance of the ego within their own personality is their greatest resistance to desired spiritual growth.
On a planetary level, it is the collective human ego that puts the wants and desires of itself above the true needs of the whole planet, presenting the greatest blockade to needed planetary change. Donald Trump has impeccably embodied this attitude of resistance, reflecting humanity’s struggle with its own massive ego entrenchment.
For the planet to arrive at the heart center, the needed perspective for planetary survival, the ego must acquiesce to the needs of the greater planetary whole. It is inevitable that we will get there, but we don’t know how far planetary disruption will go before we arrive at the heart center consensus.
To arrive at the position of unconditional love for all that is, is where we are headed. Begin to practice it now in full unconditional love for self. To love every aspect of self, from lowest to highest, will end the need for projection of one’s personal evil upon other.
To love other as self is indeed the path to heart. May we all take giant steps upon it this coming year.
Think for yourself. Think outside the box, beyond the expectations of the few, taking advice from the realm few venture into. Learn what it means to think from your heart, to make decisions from your heart center, your true place of decision making. Learn to think from the self that knows more than you imagine, the part of you connected to all that is, to the greater purpose and meaning of life and to the greater good. Change how you think and you will surely change your life. Learn to think with love.
