We live in an extremely dependent society, with many calling for more dependency. Governments are growing worldwide, with protesters in the streets calling for even more government control of their lives. As I've mentioned before in articles and videos, this crying out is an inability to be still, to observe and release our own rising pain. Unaware that this discomfort stems from within, many want someone else to be responsible, or to make them feel better. I seek power, and there are others I see and admire who are drawing up that great energy from deep within.
Self empowerment is not handed to us by politicians or revolutionaries. And we don't battle enemies to attain it, we battle ourselves.
Moving on from what we have learned in the first two parts: absolutely everything is a mirror of our consciousness, and even the heavy experiences were agreed to by our higher self as a learning experience, the purpose of this article is practicality, what can we do day to day to make use of that awareness?
How you respond to circumstances is what determines your state of being. - Bashar
As I've been attending various healing ceremonies and weekends of late I thought I'd write a guide for anyone seeking to engage in some deeper spiritual work on themselves. Often people don't know where to start or what to look for so I thought I'd give a few pointers that may be of use.
I could actually finish this post by just saying : Trust your gut, but I'll elaborate a little.
Follow your instinct, you may feel its time to engage in something light, that makes you feel good and enjoy life, perhaps yoga or meditation, some kind of spiritual discussion group. Go for it, get out there, there really is so much to choose from these days both online and locally to open our minds to a new way of viewing the world. Meditation many think is about being blissed out, I don't think it is, I've written about the challenge that is meditation here, a realistic view.
This is the second of three parts on reality. Read Part 1 There Is No Spoon - How To Manipulate Reality here.
To carry on from part one, we may struggle with some heavy experiences in our lives such as deaths, accidents, abuse etc. It's not easy to take responsibility for these things and it takes time and regular reminders as its very easy to slip into blame or victim mode.
A couple of points I am exploring regarding those heavy and dark experiences we've had:
It's not that others are not real, it's that what you experience is made out of your own energy in your reality. - Bashar
This is the first in a three part series on what reality potentially is, from a truly practical perspective, forget philosophy and spiritual theory and pondering, what the f%*k can we do to actually get free, to improve our lives, to heal? That is the purpose of these three pieces.
The first step to improving any area of our lives, changing anything we are unhappy with or that needs adjustment is taking responsibility for what we don’t like. The more areas of our lives we can take responsibility for, the more power we have to make changes, and thus improve our quality of life. Makes sense.
Talk to most spiritual people and they’ll agree, sure, we create our reality. Start asking questions and you’ll soon be told that maybe they have created some good kids, but they don’t know why they misbehave in school, or they created the great job, but not the asshole co-worker, or the lovely house but not the central heating which continues to cause problems, or the traffic on the way home from work, or the war in the middle East. You see where I'm going.
How about everything that enters your life, I mean absolutely every single thing, is a mirror of your consciousness.
In a ceremony last weekend I received further guidance on who I am and what my role here is, but I also encountered yet more dark energy that I released. This dark energy can be called entities or demons but increasingly I feel the later terms are not warranted. The demons or entities are in fact merely energy, that we form from our own consciousness. I am the darkness and the light.
But something I have often heard others talk about, and I "believed" myself, I finally had the fortune to experience. I was shown that all is from the light. In the retreat on my journey, it can feel as if there is no time, so I don't know how long this lesson took, I assume moments or minutes in our own understanding.
I was shown that all is from the light.
Late last year during a weekend workshop exploring feminine energy I experienced some changes that have rerouted my life, giving me greater understanding, and purpose, specifically with women. Finding myself increasingly aware of, and empathetic to their emotions, instinctively knowing how each individual found themselves at whatever place they were in their lives. I can read their emotional state, I can see the pain they carry hat they may not even be consciously aware of. I began to instinctively guide them through the turmoil and help energetically release any trapped trauma that I was finding. I was told through shamanic ceremonies by my guides that women would be sent to me, and with a pattern of different women appearing, who I felt I knew, I began to see the trend.
As I mentioned in the previous article, I knew already that I have possibly undertaken a lot of work in previous lives to find myself at this point. This life feels like Life Number 1, a new beginning, after a long time of training and choosing to get lost, to learn and gather more experience of humanity, right now feels like the beginning of my work that I will carry on through future lifetimes. I'm plugged in now, I'm reconnected to my Light Family, and bit by bit more is being revealed, as and when I am ready.
The Mother Goddess talked to me of specific women on the planet known as Queens.
Over two recent ceremonies I was shown that I can heal with my hands, most recently this past weekend during a Holotropic Breathwork weekend at Dunderry house. I now know I need to develop this skill as I have done with some of my other work, so I need some people to work with, you can be anywhere in the world, I work remotely, and maybe we can be of help to each other.
Many of us are discovering we have different skills and abilities to add to each others lives, to provide a service to our family and friends, to develop our communities. Of late I have been working with women and developing their divine feminine, balancing their masculine and feminine energy, and witnessing powerful results. I am also working in energy healing, and have had great results, but have only worked with physical injuries. I still doubted myself with anything more serious, thinking "well serious diseases and ailments are best left to the professionals". When some of the women I have worked with have really seen improvements in their lives and relationships, felt happier, calmer, I can measure this improvement. So now its time to seek those equivalent results with physical healing.
I learned of the great powers in my hands during my breathwork journey.
Ever felt stuck? Even in one area of your life, something you've just struggled to get rid of for years? I have, I continue to feel it in one specific area. But this being stuck has driven me, to break free, to participate in the workshops, meditation, to seek answers and embark on deeper and deeper work. As a result of this deeper work, in my understanding I am now "plugged in", reconnected to my Light Family. Not to overcomplicate things, but there could be many reasons for repeated challenges, that drive us, push us. But when we get the message why would we continue to be hit over the head with the same repeat messages? Could this be karma continuing to play out? There comes a point where being hit over the head with the same lesson becomes destructive, rather than constructive. I have taken action, I am on a new and improved path, but the kicking continues, which only slows my progress, wears me down and knocks me off track from time to time. So how about dumping the f+@king karma?

I've recently started going to a sauna and steam-room again, I had not been in years but I love the intense heat. I used to practise Bikram Yoga on and off over the years and remember whenever I'd restart I'd naturally struggle with the heat, sometimes having to just lie on the mat to stay in the room. The instructors always suggested to at least stay in the room, even though you're body is panicking, try to sit on the mat or lie and just stay with it. Drinking water too is discouraged at it only cools the body, fighting the adaptation to the heat. So now I've have been experiencing the benefits of meditation in a sauna.
