Persevering to the Gold… and Then Getting Past the Void Within (to Get to the Gold)

Share

These past few weeks have had the energy of support to finally… get… to… the… thorn that’s been in our side (even if we were “ignoring” it until now). Many things are/have been coming to a head for many, and depending on our choices (graceful and easy, or not?), it IS finally erupting so that we can LET IT GO.

Myself included; there have been some things “in my face” and a part of my experience for so long (throughout most of this life, and I understand many others, as well) that I can’t believe it took so long to SEE it, and then finally release it… TOTAL “DUH moments”! And then, once the main one was released… WOW… other “big things” just started coming up and flowing, flowing, flowing out. The result: It’s been HUGELY productive and cleansing! It’s been such a huge release and shift that I found I temporarily felt a huge, empty hole in place of those energies, because they’ve been a part of me for so long (even though they didn’t serve me, except to learn the lesson). I focused my efforts on releasing the feeling of the hole, and now, in its place has grown blessed peace, love, and AHHHHHH….

During this period, I’ve seen SO MANY symptoms of this, within myself, with clients, students, friends, family… and also institutions, belief systems, collective consciousness, you name it! The result is that for many, it feels like the world (the personal world, the world itself) is crashing down around them. Paradigms are shifting… so much is falling away in more ways than could previously be imagined!

What’s important to realize is that when our world feels that way, the lynchpin is actually our Self. Sometimes it’s most challenging for us to see in ourselves the deepest pieces of what may be holding us back… because the ego says, “Unh-unh… this is WHO WE ARE… who would we be if we let this go?” And so… the ego takes on the job of BUILDING the identity around it, and it creates a zillion excuses to SAFEGUARD it. It becomes very adept at hiding this as a limitation, and when a situation comes up that you KNOW limits you in some way, the ego justifies it (often like a martyr), and says, “Oh, that’s just who I am…” and similar ideas. It will vehemently maintain the BEing in the limiting state, because it’s afraid of becoming nothing otherwise. And… sometimes we allow the ego to sabotage us by keeping us JUST SHORT of reaching our goal… because reaching the goal is actually the biggest fear. There will be a LOT of “almost” situations, to keep us going (and, of course, the identity can stay in the mode of “working toward the goal,” which feels far safer).

I see this in very 3D ways… and I see this in very spiritual ways. I’ve seen some very adept and advanced healers/metaphysicians suddenly have a crash of sorts – physical, emotional, spiritual, and/or environmental – which feels like it came out of nowhere… and suddenly, all of their practices stop working in the fashion they’d worked before; they experience one major blockage after another… and it seems that the more they try things to remedy the situation and keep moving – regardless of what it is – the worse things seem to get. Nothing makes sense in terms of the results of their efforts… and it keeps on holding them back until they retreat from their previous efforts and sometimes give up for a bit (retreats), or find a strategic way to get BACK to the “comfort zone” (which sometimes seems different, but it’s simply the same thing disguised differently). This is from the ego sensing major danger (“Danger, danger, Will Robinson!”) because the person was actually getting REALLY CLOSE to the point of releasing a MAJOR limitation that’s been holding them back, something they’ve had well ingrained and incorporated into their identity… and the ego pulls out all the stops to hang on to the old identity for dear life (since my understanding is that it’s the ego’s primary job to create an identity separate from “the whole”).

When that happens… I’m telling you now: Know that YOU’RE ALMOST THERE. Know that obviously, there’s something in the vicinity of where you were when everything came crashing down that REALLY posed the release of this. That’s key!

So, we’re at the point in this Shift when it’s SO important that when we get to the “edge of the cliff” – even if we can’t see what’s beyond – that instead of staying at the edge indefinitely (or turning back), we TRUST and take a leap. We’ve come this far… might as well go all the way!

I know, I know, I make it sound so easy, right? I know it takes a lot of continuous effort; however, right now, this energy is so pervasive that the Higher Self isn’t giving us a whole lot of leeway… either we look at it ourselves or we manifest situations that will become so confining in some way, shape, or form that we finally have no choice but to be completely paralyzed, check out, or bust out of it, once and for all!

WOW… I promise you, the feeling of such deeply ingrained energies/limitations is EXHILARATING!

And then… the next part is really, really important to navigate in a very conscious way; after the release of such ingrained energies (habits and identity), the next typical reaction is a feeling of being lost, feeling sad, lonely… sort of like being in a void.

We don’t talk about this point beyond huge clearings much… but many don’t know how to get beyond that point; they don’t even know the words to describe what they feel. We think, WOW… I’m so glad I got rid of that/attained that/healed that… and then the ego scrambles and freaks out, saying, “NOW WHAT? WHO ARE WE NOW? WHAT DO WE DO?” If one doesn’t know what to do to move forward, sometimes they will slip backwards again and they will find a way to exhibit a different behavior that creates the same energy as what they just released… because that’s the “comfort zone” of the ego (it’s a “known evil,” and therefore, comfortable).

It’s SO perfect (of course) that these energies abound while the Winter Olympics in our 3D reality… because think about it: Many singularly train for the Olympics; for many, it’s been their entire life until now. So, say you win the gold medal, which was your ultimate goal, and you’re done with the Olympics now… what do you do next? Now what? Many go through a period of this “hole,” once the fanfare dies down… not knowing who they are anymore and where “to go” next. (And, by the way, that’s the period through which many fall into undesirable habits and “get into trouble”… because they don’t know how to “fill the hole” and simply find other ways to get the adrenaline of attainment going again.)

So…as we continue releasing such BIG stuff… there will be temporary periods of feeling a void… feeling lost… feeling like, “Good grief… this feels worse than I did before…” Sometimes, this provides feelings of isolation, loneliness, sadness (and tears), and/or fears of failure (because of releasing those energies in your life – which often sever relationships or situations that would perpetuate that “old energy”). This often exists in the gap of releasing those energies/behaviors from the identity and then expanding into our pure, undiluted, Divine self in that “space.”

First of all, recognize that this feeling of “the void” is simply the belief that you’ve lost an important part of you; and instead know that you’ve actually released a limiting part of you that will allow you to take another leap toward the full, Divine you and ultimate purpose that you came here to attain!

Well, there is meditation, of clearing the mind, focusing on the heart and the Divine light that you shine, and simply expand it out, out, out… (I have some basic guided meditations to do this available here on this Website). In doing so, you can set the intention/affirmation of releasing the “old identity,” and if you like, get conscious understanding of how this serves you in the highest and best way. If you’re a spiritual practitioner, focus your healing intentions on releasing the beliefs that you’re “less than” because of what you’re released, in any way, shape, or form. Whenever you’re feeling the heaviness, focus on expanding the light from your heart, brighter and brighter (and remember that the rest is all illusion).

If you feel like you need outside assistance in getting through this, you can talk to a practitioner of your choosing (I’d be glad to work with you... and there are many, many other spiritual mentors/advisors/healing facilitators available today who can help you – go by your inner guidance as to who will be best for you and your situation!). Do you have a spiritual discussion peer group, a place where you can talk about these feelings and the processing without judgment? This is a great forum to talk about it, and share your processing if you feel like you need outside support (for in person… if you’re in the central NC area, I moderate an open spiritual discussion group in three different Triangle locations monthly; see the Meetup; I’ve also built an interactive online spiritual community on Facebook; you can join here). Find a new hobby, do a hobby you enjoy more… remember how to ENJOY to space you’ve created, simply stay in the moment, and know/trust that now you’ve left space for something phenomenal to come in, in a way that DOES serve you in the highest and best way!

Right here, right now… if you would like a clearing that will provide assistance to allow you to resolve, dissolve, release, and clear the core underlying issues that would cause the feeling of a “void” after releasing prominent limitations in your life, remove the energy of that feeling of that void, and know how to allow your Self to positively and productively fill in the space left by the clearing in the highest and best way with the most grace and ease, just close your eyes, be open to receive, and say, “Yes – filling the void.”

Once we get through this… just know, we ALL get the gold!

What Still Triggers You?

As many would probably agree, things have “sped up” even more… it’s amazing and very exciting to see how many people are Awakening now, step by step! People who don’t even realize it, but whose perspectives and experiences are becoming a lot more wide open because of a various number of reasons.

Three months ago, I’d posted a discussion on a Facebook group discussion board asking about what a person does when in the presence of another spiritually focused person who is unaware of an ego-based response that they emit.

The discussion was somewhat varied, but there was a point made to the “Law of Resonance,” which I find comes up sometimes in spiritual circles.

I’ve found that the “Law of Resonance” isn’t always quite right, because most people who use that use it in the context that “the reason it upsets you is because you have the same issue somewhere deep down.” However, what I’ve really learned and discovered is usually that a trigger is usually due to some sort of BELIEF you have that causes friction with the opinion/reaction of the other person within yourself.

Not quite the same thing.

Being irritated with someone who can’t accept others’ experiences can simply be because you have a belief somewhere deep down that your opinion or experience isn’t as important or valid as that of others… and that can come from a memory in the distant past (or even a past life) of a situation where you yourself were belittled, made fun of, or ridiculed.

Quite different than feeling like someone else’s experiences aren’t as valid as yours (which is typically to what the standard Law of Resonance would infer in this scenario)!

I will say to those just remembering our individual power and capabilities to BE CAUTIONED, as there are some in the spiritual world who have been working in it for many years who – though I believe are well intentioned – don’t realize that they themselves have a need to release some established beliefs and ego issues of their own, which in turn affects those around them. That’s usually because they’re still working from “the way it’s always been” for them, instead of adapting to the way it’s becoming… and that’s changing month by month, week by week, even day by day! That’s a really subtle thing, because once the ego gets inserted, it’s as simple as convincing someone that ONE way is right, and ANOTHER is wrong… which in the widely opening world of metaphysics, is simply incorrect if it’s done for the individual’s highest good and works for the person!

What’s important is to go back, realize where that comes from, and release it. You’ll also find that at some point, you realize that the other person is simply in need of releasing themselves… even though they might not even think they do. So, you might just choose not to be in their company anymore for the time being. Once you’ve released that history, you typically don’t need to be, anyway… because you find it was just a learning experience for you at this juncture.

I’ve found that the more layers you peel away, the more that is buried that can use a variety of different techniques, depending on the situation – because one way doesn’t always do the same job. Once getting down to the much muckier, more protected stuff, you just learn to immediately acknowledge it, and there are also some other ways of simply deprogramming and even reprogramming yourself in a more positive manner without needing to fully relive the buried emotions!

However, I will season that with the caveat that you STILL have to be able to acknowledge it, so you must be able to approach such memories without emotion and ego and be able to recognize the lesson/experience you gained, even from the most awful memory…and it’s not always due to the action of others!

I’ve found that even in just the past few months, I’ve become much more able to immediately recognize a trigger, find the reason for the trigger, release it, and then REPROGRAM it for my and the Divine’s highest good. For me, the reprogramming part is vital, because even when you release something, if it’s deeply ingrained – say, over lifetimes of experiences – it’s difficult for your being to know how to continue on in this experience and know how to exist without that belief!

I’ve had the grace to experience quite a bit of releasing due to several modalities, and use all of them for different circumstances… I actually often use more than one, integrated together!

Here are some recognition, releasing, and healing modalities I’ve learned thus far – and I will say, all the PERFECT time (as it typically is)! Many willy say, “I don’t want to learn to be a healing practitioner; I just want to know how to get rid of all of this gunk!” The important thing to remember is that in learning how to heal others, you first have to learn how to heal yourself, which is a good part of learning these modalities!

  • Meditation, in whatever form works for you. It’s always where I tell people to start, because you can’t start knowing yourself until you quiet the mind of chatter;
  • Reiki (I’ve only taken I & II thus far, but there’s also Master and Master Teacher) – it’s a great way to be introduced into energy/healing work!
  • Crystal work, which doesn’t resonate with some, but I’ve personally felt a kinship with these wonderful beings of consciousness for a long time!
  • Lindwall Releasing (which is what was being referred to on the discussion board on that Group page);
  • Arcing Radial Light Healing – a very different feeling of energy from Reiki, but it can be very profound, and you gain the immediate presence and assistance of powerful archetypes of the Divine Feminine, Ascended Masters and the archangels in bringing the core issue to light, releasing it, and healing;
  • Working with shamanic energies via journeying, connecting in with nature around you to discover the reflection of yourself, as well as many other advantages such work provides;
  • Clearing yourself of the attachment of darker energies and entities, so you know when there’s something attached to your being that prevents it from clearing and releasing (and therefore, progressing);
  • Theta Healing – for me, THIS modality has been by far the MOST potent and powerful modality I’ve learned thus far, and integrates with EVERYTHING else to make them even more powerful! Theta allows the person to recognize and confirm THE BASE of underlying limiting beliefs (think of the bottom center of a House of Cards), teaches the person how to pull out that base (or as close to the base as possible), resolve clear the memory from all levels (physical, spiritual, genetic, and historical), all lifetimes of your being’s cells, transform it and send it straight back to Creator as Creator’s Light, and then reprogram your being’s cells to know how to exist with the opposite. It’s almost immediate, and it teaches you how to work with all other planes of existence for the Highest Good. The caveat I put in here is, be careful – you will get what you bargained for – meaning, I would recommended this modality only when the person is ready to face and honestly release some really, really old and ingrained beliefs.
  • Shamballa Healing – all I can say about this one is WOW. Lots more of opening, opening, opening to conscious awareness and connection to the different dimensions of your self – all the way up to your I AM self – and further connection to many beings of very high White Light. Much more releasing and healing, and multiple dimensions! This is yet another modality I would recommend for someone who has experience and some comfort in working in their own muck, because it’s very powerful (and this, in conjunction with Theta… triple WOW).

There are many others; I’m finding that many overlap. Quantum Touch, Matrix Energetics… I believe they all deal with similarly deep levels as Theta.

Anyway, not everything is good for everyone… which is why it’s AWESOME that there’s such a GREAT variety of different ways of recognizing, healing, and releasing.

The goal is healing ourselves, then healing each other (which ultimately, is healing ourselves, anyway)… and ANYTHING that clears the ego even ONE MORE iota more is good stuff for our development!

Munay!
