We all live in our own bubbles - so to speak, where we feel separate from what is happening in our outer world. In some ways, this is a defensive tactic, a learned behavior where past trauma or difficult situations in our reality caused us to recoil – however much of it is due to programs we received as children. From parents, teachers and television programs that told us how the world works, that taught us to override feelings and focus on what I call density logic (meaning if you can’t observe it with taste, touch or human sight – then it’s not real. Even when science has proven otherwise we still cling to these old beliefs. The side effect of these old programs is disconnection from the collective consciousness. We accept the program so fully that we deny that an inner world even exists. The inner world gets labeled as fantasy and becomes a place of denial. Where everything you don’t like or that feels dissonant can be blamed on something outside of us. This contributes to our reality – because what is going on inside of us is directly related to the reality we live in.
Another truth we lose in this program is the fact that we are all connected like a beautiful, complex, and constantly changing crystal cluster - or fractal. The collective conscious is a series of energy connections with points that grow or shrink in energy and add to the ever changing of our collective fractal. At the same instant, you come up with a new “idea” it already exists in the collective consciousness. Someone else is also getting that same idea – or maybe already has. The more folks who find connection to this unified field of consciousness the faster information travels. It is the space of “anything is possible” – for all of us. In a true collective compassionate and loving space, there is no need for jealousy or competition. We are all connected and we all have gifts to offer. Each of us has our own unique and creative approaches to life’s challenges – we all have access to great energy and opportunity if we seen it out on the inner plane.
There is no one way, its limitless the forms a fractal can make. Many guru’s have shared teachings stating they have the answers to enlightenment – or they have the only tools to access other dimensions or to reach ascension – and in some cases – they do have answers. They have the answers that worked for them. This can be helpful to many of us – we can gain insights and benefit from what they share and by implementation of new practices, thought forms and vibrations.
The problem comes in when folks start to think the exact same approach works for everyone and we implement practices because a guru said it works. This becomes like a band-aid rather than addressing the root issue – which is the frequencies (thoughts, feelings, experiences etc) – inside of you. Getting at the root of why your energy manifested this experience or pattern? So even a guru’s advice must be met with discernment from your inner self. This includes my information here. There is no one size fits all approach, we must all discern what is right for ourselves.
We are all very different – our energies work differently and our soul experiences vary greatly. This is why one person can eat foods others cannot or some are more susceptible to illness where others are not. Genetics are only a very small part of who we are. The science of epigenetics has proven the cellular memory we retain from our ancient ancestors continues to express itself in our bodies today.
Yet even in our differences, we remain connected. Right now is a very significant window of great transformation on our planet, and the cosmos as well. Tremendous energies are being sent to earth for those who choose to hear them. These energies can assist us in clearing old beliefs, programs, and paradigms that are not working for us and especially emotional energy that we have carried forward from our ancestors. This energy of release is an important step for each us, even though it may look very different from person to person how the transmutation manifests in our lives.
Getting clear means bringing awareness of what energies you are surrounded by. What is your space like? Does it inspire you? What are you listening to? Do you listen to angry music or songs of heart break? What is your inner dialogue like? Are you critical on yourself, using words like: should or shouldn’t, can’t, trying, not enough, must, have no choice, etc - or are you feeling like a victim to your circumstances? Do you talk about being “broke” or “struggling” - and on repeat? Are you constantly “fighting against” situations or people who you believe are against you?
Pay attention to your inner dialogue and the space around you is a good start to knowing yourself. Every sound we hear affects us, every word we say is heard by the body. The collective sounds that you experience from the womb to present time all contribute to your personal vibration, and ultimately, they create your reality. It is very critical that we take the time to know ourselves. Then find ways to honor the feelings and urging of our body and emotions. They are the guide that will take us to places we need to look.
An approach I have used is to create (or find) a space inside of you that remains neutral, curious, and compassionate. Create a visual image, and really feel into the space. Find the feelings in your self of love and compassion. This is usually associated with the heart but trust your self and let the feeling expand untill you feel safe, then when your ready following your bodies cues find the vulnerable parts of yourself and bring them some of this loving energy. Opening these spaces and giving them acceptance and loving energy can assist us in clearing out old stuck emotional energy and finding ourselves in the process. With the help of this neutral (non-judgmental) creator or heart energy, bring as much light love and awareness into these feelings and sensations of the body with the intention to clear what is stuck and get energy flowing for the highest good of all concerned. Slow breathing techniques, meditation and even dancing or wiggling around, crying and hiding under the covers or finding some toys and playing like a child are all ways to connect inward and move energies. Expressing anger sadness, jealousy and rage in a safe space helps to clear out the stuck places as well and expression facilitates release. Always bringing in more and more loving light energy after each release. Literally re-fill your body with loving light energy. Ultimately this type of attention on the inside will open to more direct connection with divine energies.
I find it helpful to remember that these energies are in a large part due to ancestral imprints we are still operating under. These old energies no longer apply to life as we could be living it today, and these energies can be released. It may be uncomfortable to release these old energies because it means we must feel at least in part what these experiences are/were to fully clear them from our bodies (emotional, mental, subtle and physical). This is where we may need to seek out help. Especially when energies are very old or linked to very traumatic experiences of abuse and death. Sound therapies, dancing, meditation, drumming, sharing and healing circles and especially emotional process work have helped me tremendously in developing a strong inner connection and awareness of more subtle communications. Also body work and various massage techniques and intuitive readings have given me additional support and insight. Even when seeking out help from one another we are simply interpreting the energies of the other through our own filters. So there will be limits to how much we can achieve with outside help, because we all have the answers we seek within – the more we connect with our own inner self, our being, our higher self and ultimately our soul – the clearer the picture will become.
