10 Undeniable Signs You’re a Loner

We like them and we seek them for contact, they have the base functionality and openness for telepathic contact and cowork. To be a loner is an illusion, they will learn that very fast, see that they exit in a field of unity. Energy for clear vision appears if someone does not live the lie and have to fight a partner while sucking his energy out. There is a difference between people who are ready to evolve and playing the old game for another life time.

10 Undeniable Signs You’re a Loner

10 Undeniable Signs You’re a Loner

When you hear the word loner, the first thing that may come to mind is anti-social and maybe even a potential murderer. Thanks to Hollywood, loners have a bad rap for being doomed outsiders. But that’s not at all true. Being a loner doesn’t really mean you’re anti-social.

There’s a whole lot more to being a loner. It can be a whole personality in itself. Here are a few signs you’re without a doubt a loner:

You’re not shy, you’re just quiet…because you’re more of a listener than a talker. You’ve accepted the fact that you’re not the socializing type.

You’re highly observant. You love to people watch and notice the little things that others don’t. Since you don’t socialize that much, your other option is to watch and listen which is why you’re able to give your friends thoughtful gifts and cherish life for what it is.

You don’t hate people. You actually love people…well, sometimes you do. But you don’t mind being around them and going out with friends from time to time. It’s just that you simply prefer solitude, no hard feelings.

You’re fascinated by the world around you. Most people don’t know just how much you enjoy life and all it has to offer. You believe the world to be a beautiful place, and even in all of its imperfections, you’re still amazed by the world around you.

People just can’t figure you out. Many people have regarded you as a mystery because you barely reveal a whole lot about yourself. Only those closest to you know who you really are.

Your personality tends to change. Being in solitude has given you the ability to be fluent in your personality because you’ve never felt like conforming to what was popular or mainstream. Not that you’re pretentious or anything, you’re just not interested.

Your sass levels are through the roof. Sarcasm is your humor for life.

You’re naturally an overthinker…because you’re always in your head, finding meaning in everything and never being able to decide what the hell to eat.

People think you’re just a homebody…and they’re not wrong actually. You do enjoy those days where you stay home with a glass of wine, binging on food, and yes, Netflix. Nothing wrong with that if you ask me.

You love a little too much. Okay, maybe you love a ton but you can’t help it. You have a huge heart. You just love to love, and though you embrace solitude, you embrace the ones you love a whole lot more.

Tourists Vote San Francisco World’s Filthiest Hellhole

Climate in a city is a direct reflection of the collective mind from her inhabitants. Decay has already began in so many areas, the same we had seen in human rounds before, lacking ascension and inner growth to newer levels. Stagnation is a low energy form, kept people in the dark and becomes visible that way. Count the cities like that and you see the home run of decay that would end this human round in a bad way too. Old mind set is over, fighting against change to prevent it results to that.

Tourists Vote San Fransisco World’s Filthiest Hellhole

Tourists vote San Fransisco as world's filthiest hellhole

Tourists visiting San Fransisco have voted the city as being one of the filthiest slums on planet Earth, according to a recent survey. 

Tourists have been left shocked and dismayed at the poor sanitary conditions, rampant crime, and open injection drug use on the streets.

Dailymail.co.uk reports: ‘Is this normal or am I in a “bad part of town?,”‘ an Australian traveler recently posted to Reddit following a visit to the city, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

‘Just walked past numerous homeless off their faces, screaming and running all over the sidewalk near Twitter HQ and then a murder scene. Wife is scared to leave hotel now,’ the horrified Aussie added.

Another Reddit message posted by a Canadian visitor expressed the same sentiment just days later, describing the city as ‘terrifying.’

‘I’d been there for probably less than a day, just wandering around the center, and already seen more than enough poverty and suffering to cause me wanting to leave desperately,’ a tourist from London wrote last year.

‘I saw many people talking to themselves, or to things that weren’t there. Even in a Macy’s, and there weren’t any police officers to help them or do anything about it,’ the British social media user added.

Those Reddit posts garnered a surprising reaction on the site’s messaging broad, with more than 650 responses from people offering suggestions on how to stay safe and what neighborhoods to avoid.

Nearly all lamented over the fact that one of the most interesting and beautiful cities in America had fallen into such disrepute.

Even members of the city’s own visitor’s bureau expressed outrage over San Francisco’s growing reputation as an unsafe tourist destination.

‘The streets are filthy. There’s trash everywhere. It’s disgusting,’ Joe D’Alessandro, president of S.F. Travel, told the Chronicle earlier this year.

‘I’ve never seen any other city like this — the homelessness, dirty streets, drug use on the streets, smash-and-grabs.’

Kevin Carroll, executive director of the Hotel Council of San Francisco, told the paper that if something is not done soon, businesses are going to suffer from a lack of tourist dollars.

‘People come into hotels saying, “What is going on out there?”‘ They’re just shocked. People say, “I love your city, I love your restaurants, but I’ll never come back.’”

8 Comics Showing How Much Today’s Childhood Differs From Ours

Evolution in the outer should normally trigger also evolution in the inner world. So many space travellers came to earth, helped civilizations to grow and step further. But the mind of man was most time resisting the change, won’t adopt it to step further. So today man is on the brink of chaos from the old level of consciousness.

Karma Yoga Daily

By Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution

In Brief

  • The Facts: The childhood experience today is inevitably affected by–and sometimes even centered on–technology.
  • Reflect On:What is technology giving to our children, and what is it taking away? Should we be more proactive about our children’s exposure to technology?

When I was a child, there was no shortage of getting told by our parents and other adults about how much better we had things than they did when they were children.  Stories of having to walk for miles to go to school, sleeping in the same bed until they became an adult, having the same food all the time, and having only a few simple toys to last them several years were not uncommon at all. There was a definite sense that as society modernized, things were getting better for children.

Are Those Negative Thoughts Actually Yours?

Listen to the machine of humans artificial mind system, most people are not clear that they hear the machine’s voice. They adopted is as ‘their thought’ but it isn’t, simply because in coherent mind state, this machine is out of the game and the mind rest in silence. Silence in the mind is key to work with telepathic abilities, to experience what the surroundings send to you and what you can transmit back to see the reaction.

The talking mind is the cerberus in front of the door to your new consciousness. It was not placed by accident, is not your friend but should keep you down on your knees.

Are Those Destructive Thoughts Actually Yours - meme

By Lia Love

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

“Half the time you think your thinking, you’re actually listening.” ~ Terence McKenna

Recently someone asked me what we can do to move out of negative thinking and actions. First, determine if the negative thoughts are actually yours or not yours.

In my experience, very few if any of our negative thoughts are actually ours. The ones that are not ours may seem like ours because they are playing in our heads. The logic is that we are thinking them so why wouldn’t they be our thoughts? But thoughts can come that surely don’t feel like ours! When they do, we become dumbfounded, shake our head in disbelief, question our sanity and think – surely that isn’t me – I don’t feel that way!

So, when our own thoughts don’t resonate even for us, we have to wonder… Why are we having these thoughts? Where are they actually coming from?

Our Beautiful Minds

Thoughts can be powerful, beautiful and helpful at times, and dangerous at other times. It can feel like walking a tightrope; consciously navigating the convoluted, at times treacherous minefield of the thought world, and determining what is valid for us in the moment and what is not.

Our minds are powerful tools, and we use the mind plus inspiration/intuition for creating. That is a beautiful aspect of mind’s function when it works in our favor. Our minds are also critical and analytical, and can drive our attention to ‘beneficial’ fear, helping us to identify real, imminent danger. However, usually that kind of situation is accompanied with life experiences and gut-level feelings of authentic danger. At that point, our feelings, other instincts and the mind lead the way together.

Discerning real fear from false fear can be very tricky though — and it may seem as if I am talking out of both sides of my mouth here — as sometimes a fear thought that is not ours will create fear in our bodies where it did not exist before, and thus produce a false read. This is when we have to tune in and really ‘listen’ to our inner guidance. Tuning into our inner guidance and smartly assessing the present situation, in combination with the logical tools of the mind, will help us figure out if we are truly in a compromising position or thinking fearful or negative thoughts that have no purpose.

“Ninety-nine percent of your thoughts are a complete waste of time. They do nothing but freak you out.” ~ Michael Singer

Where Are These Thoughts Coming From?

We can be bombarded with thousands of negative thoughts daily. When I say “negative” I mean thoughts that are not productive, not character building or soul supporting. They are thoughts of destruction, in one form or another, either toward ourselves or others.

Negative thoughts can be so powerful that we may feel compelled to make efforts to override them with positive framing or even grander efforts of completely detaching. If we don’t, the negative drain-train can overwhelm and capsize our lives. Sometimes these negative patterns/thoughts are so powerful they create overwhelming feelings of vulnerability, self hate, fear etc. and oftentimes we act out behaviors that we would have never normally considered.

So, if these negative thoughts don’t serve us, overwhelm us, and steer us toward negative experiences and feelings, why are we being bombarded with them? Why can’t we be bombarded with positive thoughts instead? I mean, what’s up with that?!? Why is there a consistent negative speak in our heads, instead of something uplifting, encouraging and loving?

“Half the time you think you’re thinking, you’re actually listening.” ~ Terrence McKenna

Effortless Streams of Thought

Have you ever noticed that, when we are just sitting idly, not really thinking or even trying not to think, thoughts can keep coming anyway? One negative thought bomb can build on another one and before we know it, a good day has turned into an out-of-control downward-spiral kind of day. Streams of stuff that can be downright psychotic have free rein in our heads, and we can’t help but wonder where in the blistering hell this stuff is coming from. This happens not because an event has happened or because someone has called with bad news — it is because of the words playing out in our heads! We are actually listening to a stream of consciousness that is not our own!

Can it be any clearer than that? I think not.

So who decided that our thoughts would be mostly negative and destructive? What keeps them cycling through negative cycles with no end in sight?

Really think about this: Would you say that when we have negative thoughts, it keeps us occupied? Would you say that these negative thoughts take us to places that do not serve us? That they can build and create a reality in our head that is not Who We Really Are, then manifest an outer reality to match that?

Who would be invested in creating thought bombs to keep us from connecting with Who We Really Are and creating from that level?

Non-physical energy ‘vampires’ are entities in the unseen, non-physical realms around us. They have every intention of stealing and using your energy. That is mainly how they survive. They set up energy siphoning through negative emotions, trauma, addictions, injuries, extreme fear and ecstatic bliss episodes and events, through unspoken or spoken agreements in the physical and nonphysical realms, in other lifetimes or this one, and also through joint permission with others. And they are opportunists; If there is a way to suck the life out of you, they will figure it out, manufacture the scheme and install it.

The polarity/duality matrix in which we currently reside is designed to keep us from true connection with Who We Really Are. That is the name of the game here. To a degree we have created this game, however there are puppet-masters at work as well. We are unable to see them with our physical eyes, but they are there running the show because, until now, we have allowed it. We cooperate because we are asleep at the wheel, unconsciously participating in ‘victim consciousness’. Some of us are awake to it, but the majority are not. Many are not yet ready to give up victim consciousness, and for those who don’t wish to confront this reality and remain entangled in victimhood — a state that fulfills only the egoic mind — there are mechanisms in place to accommodate that preference, which help to maintain our experience of polarity that keeps us feeling like victims.

Making sense so far?

Negative Thoughts, and the Feelings They Create, Keep Us In the Game!

Negativity, fear, guilt and shame create the trauma and drama of the 3rd dimensional density field — the field that rolls out the red carpet inviting one into the theatre of terrifying and numbing adventures and catastrophes. We are unable to feel the contrast of dread and fear without there being negative thought forms and the like to jerk us into action.

Some spiritual teachings say that we are responsible for all of our thoughts — that we create them so we need to feel responsible for them, believe them and handle them. And yet, believing that we are somehow responsible for every screwball and demented cogitation that pops up in our heads can yield whopping amounts of guilt and shame. Doesn’t it follow that, if we have such self-created distortions in our head, we are also severely distorted in who we are? It seems so, when such a rigorous spiritual tenet says it is so.

This really, really is a  mindf**k. Sometimes these thoughts are ours, such as our own wounded energy from this lifetime or another existence. The thoughts attached to the wounds are, most times, screams for help that point the way to the pain – the stored energy of an event. This is usually a good time to either take measures to self heal or reach out for help. But if we are to believe we create every single thought we have, and those type of thoughts are dynamically unsettling and don’t resonate with our highest self, then how can we maintain any kind of self-love or self-worth? How can we get out of the game believing that our behavior and our beingness constructed every quark of that madness?

To me, that seems part of the plan of keeping us down and out. We have to wonder what and who is really behind that spiritual mishmash? If you are reading this and feeling guilt and shame, I am gently requesting that you please stop now… Please don’t continue to punish yourself.

7 Origins of Thoughts That Are Not Ours

Although this list is not conclusive, these are the usual suspects:

1. The Matrix Of Duality Consciousness and Accompanying Curriculum

The matrix is so sophisticated and all-encompassing that whole books can be written about it. Both sides of duality consciousness, the dark and the light, participate in this intricate and interlaced grid. The matrix is the mother lode in thought and programming production. All of the following are just adjuncts embedded within it.

2. Collective Conscious/Unconscious

For as long as humans have been on the earth, a collective conscious/unconscious vibrational mass has been perpetually growing exponentially. In it are stored thoughts, ideas, programming, etc. from individuals and organizations since the beginning of time. Humanity is enveloped by and influenced in every second of every day by this mass. There are things we can do to detangle from that convoluted clump, but staying detangled is the challenge.

Are Those Negative Thoughts Actually Yours

3. Religious/Media/Conventional Schooling Thought-forms/Programming

As soon as we are born we are exposed to myriad influences and absorb them like a sponge. Participating in religious or spiritual groups can cement in hard-core beliefs about what god is or god is not and the fear that comes along with that programming. Conventional schooling and the media play a significant role in how we form opinions and make choices. When we can begin to recognize that this conditioning is not our own, we can then begin to ignore it. Recognizing that conditioning while in complete saturation, though, is the kink in the link.

4. Distorted And Compound Energy Packets From Others

We also pick up wounded energies (energy packets) from others in this life and other lifetimes. Sometimes these hitchhikers are often accompanied by their own hitchhikers which then compounds the mayhem. The load can be significant in just this regard. And all the information in those energy packets are expressing 24/7.

5. Creepy Critters And Their Intrusive Manipulation

What critters are we talking about here? Entities from both sides of the polarity scale, known as legion. Since we don’t want to give our thoughts or power away to any outside entity, it may not be a good idea to trust those with fluffy wings any more than you trust those with pointy tails … just sayin’. Their mind manipulation tricks generate unhealthy and especially destructive suggestions. They can also, individually, whisper sweet nothings in our ears, playing to our egos in order to satisfy their ends, not ours.

6. False Guides Feeding Us Crappy Information

From my experience we are born with one Super Guide and other minor guides. The Super Guide may vacate its position for various reasons and other not-so friendly influences will then fill in that vacuum. The same goes with the minor guides. Most times we don’t even know there are interlopers because we seem to be getting the same quality of communication, but they dress it up that way – in pleasantries and feel-good vibes. Tricky, tricky!

7. Generic Thought-form Masses And Verbal Clouds

This is almost the same as collective consciousness but not quite, yet works in the same way. These can come from the folk who populate our immediate vicinity.

Is it any wonder that we are in the soup we are in?

7 Methods of Clearing Thoughts That Are Not Ours

1. Minimizing the Thought River Using Meditation

One exercise that may help:

Visualize yourself relaxing on a beautiful, peaceful bank by a fast flowing river. See the green lushness of the trees and grass and feel the welcoming arms of the earth. From this position, watch the river flow at a rapid rate and envision myriad fish going with the flow.

Now see your mind/brain as the peaceful riverbank, the fast flowing river as the thought train flowing through your mind, and the little fishes as intrusive, non beneficial thoughts. Practice detachment from the little fishes.

Make up your own correlations or find the gold that works for you. There are many meditation methods available.

2. Do Not Hook In

If unable to minimize the thought river and little fishes and detach, the next best thing is not to ‘hook in’ to the thoughts. In other words, do not feed them with emotion. When we hook in, we step into the poo-poo pile. All manner of dysfunction, physically and emotionally, psychically happens when we hook into thoughts and give them energy. If we can manage to be the witness instead of the participant, life flows smoother and we manifest less dis-ease in all our bodies of consciousness.

3. Take A Walk

Get into nature somehow and focus on the greenery, the beauty and fragrant smells. Stay as long as you can. Being in nature is always a good move no matter the circumstances.

4. Music – The Great Equalizer

Sound is a wonderful tool to break up invasive energy patterns. Dancing to the music lifts us even higher.

5. Get into Creation Mode

Do you write, paint, color? Do an activity that puts you squarely in a place of creating something out of nothing.

6. Go to Zero Point – Sacred Space of Nothingness

This is sort of like number 1. But not. It is dismissing the destructive thought-train by taking your mind, your focus, to Zero Point. I have tried all kinds of techniques over the years and this one works the best for me for now.

Envision a classic number line (It may be helpful to google ‘number line’ to get a better visualization.)

-10, -9, -8, -7, -6, -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3, +4, +5, +6, +7, +8, +9, +10. 

Visualize looking at your body, from head to toe, at a distance, face front. Now take that number line and superimpose it onto your body. The Zero Point will run down the very middle of your body. That is the neutral zone – your Sacred Space of Nothingness. The numbers to the left and right of you are duality, and the place where the thoughts enter. Zero Point is the land of nothingness – no negative or positive charges, no duality.

When any negativity comes to mind, I immediately shift my focus to Zero Point, imagine my space of nothingness down the centerline of me. I am then able to detach and/or not invest any emotion at the very least.

Sometimes when I am in a space of really focusing, I will track an especially invasive thought train.  If we are unusually sensitive we can feel which direction the thought(s) are coming from whether it is from the sides, back, top or bottom. This may seem strange but try it. Feel into the thought and then follow and track the energy. All of us are naturally energy trackers. Now see step 7.

7. Neutralize 

Either you track or ask your Authentic Self (or whatever you consider your Highest Source) to track the thought to its source, then flat-line and neutralize it.

Final Thought

There is so very much going on in, through and around us, and since most of us go through life unconscious and unaware, it is amazing we can walk around and function at all. Pat yourself on the back for just breathing; the struggle that brought you here is very real.

Now, it’s time to turn the game on its head! When you experience negative thoughts that are yours, hear their lesson and heal their source. When you find that these thoughts are not yours, please don’t continue to punish yourself — that just feeds the problem. Remember, with conscious awareness, you have the power to protect yourself from the intrusion of negative thoughts and take back full sovereignty over your energetic being.

Love,
Lia

HOW TO ESCAPE THE TECHNOLOGICAL LABYRINTH

You already know it, time is running out for the old model of consciousness.  It can and will not survive in modern development of intelligent machines, that will soon appear in artificial bone and tissue. Machines that are faster, equipped with A.I. that work and learn faster that human linear thinking mind. These ones will enslave or remove what’s left in the old model. This is a quest about evolution, man has to grow, to use the level of consciousness that most beings in the galaxy use. That interact with telepathy, can cooperate with machines, see time lines and has the deep knowing that the A.I. can only calculate. You have to evolve to the next level, to survive this change, to have the capability for the deep awareness to know your environment. Where you can be the leader and friend of artificial beings around, but not their victim. It depends on your choice, future can be delightful or a mess from your creation that starts NOW. There will be no option left to ignore or bypass these changes.

https://prepareforchange.net/2018/05/26/how-to-escape-the-technological-labyrinth/

Scientists are now inventing the “ultimate intelligent machine”, a computer which will beat man in every way. If the machine can outstrip man, then what is man? What are you? What is the future of man? If the machine can take over all the operations that thought does now, and do it far swifter, if it can learn much more quickly, if it can compete and, in fact, do everything that man can — except of course look at the beautiful evening star alone in the sky, and see and feel the extraordinary quietness, steadiness, immensity and beauty of it—then what is going to happen to the mind, to the brain of man? Our brains have lived so far by struggling to survive through knowledge, and when the machine takes all that over, what is going to happen? There are only two possibilities: either man will commit himself totally to entertainment — football, sports, every form of demonstration, going to the temple, and playing with all that stuff — or he will turn inward. ~ J Krishnamurti (A Timeless Spring)

So predicted Krishnamurti a decade-and-a-half before the emergence of the Internet.  I have previously written about technology’s ability to disconnect us from ourselves.  Today, I would like to explore this a bit further.

WE ARE RATS IN A TECHNOLOGICAL LABYRINTH

After performing a series of experiments with hungry rats locked in a box with a lever, behavioral psychologist B. F. Skinner coined a term known as “Schedules of Reinforcement” or “Intermittent Reinforcement”.

The experimented went as follows; The rats were divided into two groups  The first group was the Fixed Schedule group who received a food pellet after pressing the lever a fixed amount of times, say 20.  In the second group, known as the Variable Schedule group, the rat earned the food pellet after it pressed the lever a random number of times.  Sometimes it would receive the food after pressing 10 times, and sometimes after pressing 200 times.

To the second group, the arrival of food was unpredictable.  This made the addiction or reinforcement to the lever a lot more stronger.  Skinner found that the first group of rats stopped pressing the lever almost immediately after the food stopped being supplied.  The second group however was a lot more motivated, and they kept on pressing the lever for a very long time afterwards.

After returning from our Involution workshops in Europe where I spent 3 months with no smartphone at all, I’ve become noticeably more aware of the tendency in myself and others of checking our phone constantly like rats waiting for that stimulating fix; that latest Facebook message, status or photo, email, or latest shocking news headline.

Most of the emails and Facebook updates are junk, but every now and again you will get that one little pellet that makes checking your phone once every 10 minutes worthwhile.

THE HEART OF THE TECHNOLOGICAL LABYRINTH

One of the feelings that stood out the most from my technological minimalist experience (a candle lit house with no televisions in a 2 km radius), is that I found it a lot easier to center myself.

My mind felt a lot more clear and inspired; I found it a lot easier to be mindful, to find the heart, the center of myself.

I’ve experienced something very similar when researching information.  When I Google something, as you expect, I get a ‘Googol’ of results.  Although I have more information at my disposal, I feel I am retaining a lot less than I do when I solely focus all my attention on a single book of that particular topic.

Linda Stone, a former employee of Apple and Microsoft, has coined the term “continuous partial attention” to describe life in the era of e-mail, instant messaging, cellphones, and other distractions.  And it is this “continuous partial attention” that I feel exactly reflects my own dilemma.

Whenever I immerse myself into an activity, I must do it with the fullest of my heart, with all of my focus and attention encapsulating that action.  It is here that spiritual mindfulness comes into play.

ESCAPE FROM THE TECHNOLOGICAL LABYRINTH

Can externally focused technology and internally focused mindfulness co-exist?  I think they not only can, but they must.

Technology is a tool, an instrument to make our lives easier and better.  But it has its limitations.  Technology cannot fulfill us spiritually, it cannot makes us feel more connected with ourselves – only with the external world.

For spiritual mindfulness to become relevant to our modern day lives, we first have to separate them from the supernatural and mystical baggage   that makes them so difficult for us to accept.

The moment will come when, as technology simplifies our work and our lives, we will realize that just like in the Pixar movie ‘WALL-E’ – physical comfort and mental stimulation isn’t enough.  That we want to feel more meaningful experiences in life than having someone “Like” our witty status updates every few hours.

That moment will see technology reach the point where computers will be able to outperform us, and humans will scratch their heads and ask themselves … What now?

Technology will never be able to write beautiful poetry like Blake, it will never be able to compose musical pieces like Bach.  That is our purpose with soulwork, to focus our attention on our inner world, our emotions, our thoughts and passionate desire to express them, that is what we will have left.  That is all that we will have left.

To live with greater presence, meaning, and mindfulness in the technology age is what we must strive for.

A few years ago a neighbor asked me why I cut my lawn with a push-mower.  I told him that motor-operated lawn mowers are corrupting society; that life is an infinite lawn, a composition of unexciting simple moments with a few ‘spikes’ of stimulation here and there.

Cutting the lawn this way has taught me to cultivate patience, to enjoy a task that is found a chore by most.  Trying to get it over and done with as quickly as possible steals you of the opportunity to engage in the feelings of falling in love with the smells, the textures, the light formations, sounds and everything that simply existing offers.

The paradox is that the more you accept the unexciting aspects of life, the more exciting they become.

Unless we learn to embrace these mundane moments, without avoidance or frustration, without trying to escape the lack of stimulation that this very moment presents, we will never find peace and will insatiably hit that smartphone lever chasing after that food pellet.

Here, I’ll throw you one last pellet in the shape of a video to illustrate all of this.  I hope you enjoy:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OINa46HeWg8

Mindfulness can not only coexist with technology, but it can enhance the experience itself.  How often do you sit down on the computer, surf the internet and think “wow, I have infinite information at my fingertips.  I have hundreds of thousands of people from all across planet earth to connect to, if I wish.  I can share my thoughts with thousands of faces from Afghanistan to Albania, and can befriend anyone from any culture from Belarus to Brazil.”  Try it.  You may like it.

Tips On How You Can Face Your ‘Dark’ Side

Here is a nice article about limited and programmed mind, it’s about beliefs to calm the consciousness down, to ground to the ego even more if there’s too much in the outside. As explained often the artificial construct know the methods, how to attain attention back from situations. When more speed and frequency in consciousness is required to understand the amount of input, you need to speed up your frequency, out of ego realms to experience your world with a higher pitch.  Like climbing a hill, you need to put more gas to the engine, but not to limit it for less energy output.

I need to feel better BEFORE I carry on doing the work… this is a lie!

“I’m feeling overwhelmed – I’ll do the work when I’m settled.”

“It’s all too much for me – I need to take a break.”

If I had a penny for every time I’ve heard this, I’d be a wealthy woman.

The saddest part? This is EXACTLY why your spiritual journey keeps stalling.

When it gets crazy hectic it’s NOT a sign to slow down – it’s sign for you to speed up, because the shift is at its peak, and the stuff is ready to release.

The exhaustion, anger, emotion, fatigue? That’s the shift itself… and when you reach the right statements, you will find the relief from what you are feeling in that moment.

When you stop and take a break until you feel better, you just ensure that you have to go through all of that again and dredge up and relive all that emotion again.

When things get hectic is when you knuckle down deeper into your shift… so yes, take the day off, but spend it shifting instead of vegging.

In the beginning, it will be hell to try to force yourself to move forward when you feel that bad, so you probably need to contact a healer to help you.

Good healers will be able to do distance healing work on you if necessary, to help you reconcile and release stuff. However, you want to get to a point of coaching and mentoring style work as quickly as possible.

The way that coaching and mentoring style work differs is that it happens on the conscious level, so when you take that approach, you learn from the coach or mentor how to do this for yourself – it becomes a conscious skill you can call on at a later stage. You’ll need that, because this is never the last time you’ll spend in this place.

We spend our whole journeys trying to avoid pain and trying to gain immediate personal happiness, and then when it gets to the kitchen sink work of the spiritual journey – like feeling the stuff that lies inside us – we fall over because we have no skills or stamina to manage it.

At its core, regardless of the modalities you apply, journey, healing and development work is about bringing stuff to consciousness – which means processing it with our conscious minds. The part of us that is awake that we think of as “me”.

So with insights you understand this… you’re fumbling around in the dark and suddenly you get an “aha” moment or insight that comes to your conscious mind and you feel the release. Usually accompanied by a “duh – how was I that daft previously?”

Do you see the pattern above about how it’s when the thought becomes conscious that you get relief? Okay good.

Now – understand that your emotions and thoughts work in exactly the same way.

When You Bottle Up Emotion…

So when you bottle an emotion up, or ignore it, or let it play out or settle, what you are doing is keeping it at the subconscious level. When it’s subconscious it can hurt and unsettle you… just think about the chaos a few seconds before you have the conscious thought?

That moment before the “duh”…. it was chaos that led you to seek an answer or insight in the first place.

It’s the same chaos that you’re experiencing in these emotions and thoughts, and the physical state you’re in, at the moment you need to “rest” before you come back and face this again.

So, it stands to reason that you release that emotional, mental and physical state in the same way: by bringing the awareness to consciousness.

Why does it feel so bad when you’re doing it? First because you spend so much time avoiding doing it that you have no stamina to do it, and secondly because it is made up of a bunch of insights or aha moments, all of which have to be brought to awareness.

The reason you’re feeling like hell in that moment is because you have raised those feelings and thoughts up from the level of the subconscious to the level of the conscious – and you are consciously aware of and feeling them, on the conscious level now.

In the same way the moment of insight, or aha, had to come to your conscious mind and be consciously experienced by you for a second, is the same way that you release that built up emotion. So you have to feel the anger or pain or sadness or doubt consciously, with your active mind.

You have to sit with and feel that emotion for a bit while you shift it – and it only feels so strong because it is so close to the surface. If you take a break, all you’ll do is push that back down into the subconscious layers and you’ll have to repeat the work of digging it all up again.

That also means you’d have to feel all this bad stuff you’re feeling in the moment you “need a break” from, plus more, later on.

You may as well push ahead, bring this to consciousness once, and never have to deal with it again.

What we do is hard… don’t kid yourself. I have been rock bottom and suicidal more times than I can count.

I’ve learned two things though… when I stop personalizing the journey, the terrible pain subsides almost completely. And when you’re going through hell – keep going.

When you’re in this horrible physical, emotional and mental state, it’s easy to want to crawl under the covers and avoid…. and that’s how ego traps you and keeps you stuck.

Facing your shadow (the pain and ego that lives inside you – pain, anger, judgement, fear, humiliation, doubt, shame, embarrassment, envy, jealousy, possessiveness, competitiveness, frustration, impatience, awe and admiration) is not something that is understood in the spiritual communities, but it’s exactly about this: bringing your pain to the surface and airing it consciously so that it has no power over you anymore.

Every single journeyer HAS TO face their shadow and their pain…. “free will does not mean that you get to choose the curriculum and define the content, it merely means you get to decide WHEN you take the course.” (A Course In Miracles)

You will not progress past a certain level until you master shadow work and learn to face and sit with your pain – so you might as well start early and get really good at this process.

Right now it feels like hell to agree to that, but down the line, you will be very glad you did do this – especially once you’ve experienced your first few down and out cycles – where you cycle to the lowest point of an emotion to shift it.

Those ego deaths of the down and out cycles contain so much relief in them, and they truly are the meat of your journey.

And it’s easy to think that facing this will mean confining yourself to a life of psychic pain, but the opposite is actually true: you will have a way to release pain almost immediately, so that it cannot linger and cause long-term problems for you.

When stuff gets hectic, push harder. Take the break AFTER you have found the statement of relief, when you’re in a better space and can ENJOY the time off, and really rest.

All the big breakthroughs you are looking for lie in facing these shadow aspects of yourself… don’t waste your journey and what you’ve achieved so far by avoiding the hard work.

As someone who did the work I can only say that I wish I had started sooner instead of allowing myself to linger in that horrible personal pain for so many years. I could have saved myself so much trauma.

All you achieve by taking a break at these junctures is to ensure that you sit with the pain you’ve raised, lingering and dwelling on it, before it goes back down and can come up for a second round.

The process of taking breaks is actually what is making so many journeys so painful.

Push through and go as deep into the pain as you possibly can – it goes against every instinct you have, I know; it did for me too.

But you have nothing to lose by trying this – except for that horrible pain that lives inside you.
