Since I’ve recently had my computer repaired, I’ve found it impossible to write anything.  I offer myself various reasons – I’m tired, can’t be bothered, don’t know what to write about.  Nothing seems significant enough for me to comment on….all lame excuses for my lack of creativity, which appears to be  having a rest at the moment!  Seems like it was more than just my computer that reached breaking point…created by enforced change!

Not only that, but instead of finding consolation, I’m finding it increasingly difficult to listen to other people’s messages of motivation.  Where an uncharacteristic, common response from me is something like old Scrooge saying…BAH!…HUMBUG!…to anything he doesn’t want to deal with!

The strange thing is that I’m not really that worried about not writing at the moment… And I don’t want to listen to ‘them’ as I’ve heard it all before, no-one is telling me anything new…etc.! (No disrespect to anyone here – it’s just how I’m feeling at the moment)!

So if I’m not writing or listening to others, what AM I doing?

Well interestingly enough, I am making decisions most of the time now…which is somewhat of a surprise to me, as previously I found it difficult to make choices which meant I committed myself to anything! Of course that reluctance is linked to my inner fear, my life circumstances, and my indecision traits exaggerated because I’m a Libran (that’s my excuse anyway)! But what has happened, that made me want to over-ride my own negative traits?  What made me want to change my habits of a lifetime?

I’m wondering whether my apparent intolerance to some things, is simply a way to make me focus on issues that are more important and relevant to ME – unfinished business and all that stuff….!  After all, this is said to be a time for letting go of the Piscean past, that holds us back from the Aquarian future.  And if we don’t change what we’re doing we will suffer the consequences of remaining stuck – and whatever they may be they will not be comfortable to experience I’m sure!

To understand this we have to take account of the current energetic changes that have taken place recently…!

There was much hype about the 21.12.12 date and how things would change.  And whilst there were those who predicted doom and gloom, I think many were hoping this event would provide the ‘MIRACLE’, that would magically fix our lives, that would give us clear insight into what we should be doing, and where we should be going!  I know I was hoping this energetic change would mean things would get a bit easier for us – as the past has certainly be harder to cope with than most of us expected!

Alas…change wasn’t going to be that easy…it never is, is it?

But whilst there appears to be no obvious changes in my life,  if I let go of my expectations of what I would’ve liked to have happened, and look back over recent months – since 21.12.12, I can clearly see how changes in my mentality have occurred , and how I am using my power in a different way than before – as since this time I am attempting to design my actions for MY benefit, to meet MY intrinsic soul needs, rather than spreading my energy over external matters that regularly leave me feeling drained and exhausted!

I am trying to manage my own energy in a different way (this does take a bit of practice), and whereas before 21.12.12 I felt ‘stuck’, for some reason since that date I don’t. And although I’ve still not got a strong energetic pull in any particular direction to express my creativity, which still frustrates me, my heart is pulsing to speak, to share, to help and assist, wherever I am driven to do so!

However, I still have to remind myself to remember, that like everyone other human on this planet, I (or my energy) is being changed.  And that I am metamorphoses in action.  Where as my energy field seeks ways to adapt and adjust to new vibrational frequencies, my physical body tries to do it’s own thing to re-stabilise, whilst my mind and emotions want to freak-out because of the unknown inevitabilities we face in the forthcoming future!  Phew…what an upheaval!

Yet strangely enough, whilst on some level I feel quite chaotic, in my heart centre my soul breathes love at last!  IT, my restricted, trapped, higher self, feels peace because it knows the time is right to be free from my human restraint.  I feel reassured that what we’ve been waiting for so long, has now started to arrive…although it still makes me nervous to know that our destination is a long way off yet…so there’s still more work we each have to do, to get where we need to be!

The journey of ego-control has been such an arduous trek, where those of us who followed our soul-guidance found hardship, challenge and intense pain, when actually we sought to find internal peace.  I know as I got deeper into our ‘ascension process’ and realised what our pathway ahead looked like, I felt such utter despair at the enormous task I’d agreed to undertake. And whereas at one time I thought that cognitive correction or reframing was all that was necessary for me to reduce my fear-filled existence, I soon realised I was actually healing my energy of pain from other times, other lives, other existences, that it had encumbered since the beginning of time.

WHAT A HUGE TASK !!! – But how can we succeed in changing the way we live, to a world filled with loving and compassionate beings, when everyone and everything else had failed in the past?

But I had to trust that the universe knew what it was doing, as man certainly didn’t!  I wanted to believe my channelled messages that spoke of self-healing first, before we can truly help others.  Messages over the many years that tried to reassure me that my fear was my own creation, that it wasn’t real in true terms, that only love could set us free from our fear-filled belief system! As I faced my darkest demons, I wanted to trust that I was protected, and guided at all times by compassionate beings affiliated to universal God energy. I had to learn that I was multi-dimensional, and that was hard!

Many searching like me, gave up along the way.  Many persevered, and have survived their self-defeating mentality.  Regardless, this is a universal healing exercise – we will all be converted back to our original SELF, at some time in the future.  The plan is bigger than human….and it has to happen – for our benefit!

We all like to know where we’re heading, as we can prepare ourselves.  But no-one really knew what would happen on or after 21.12.12.  I usually channel clear, trustworthy information most of the time that helps me understand the truth of the world, but I’ve not been able to access my sources lately, due to the over-activity of my mind.  Thus, whilst I can clearly identify the TRENDS of energy that compel us to move in certain directions, I’m having to take guidance from others, who have gained access to higher wisdom that is meant to help us evolve our consciousness. This means as I gather information, I can formulate ideas about what direction we are energetically being propelled into, confirm or dispel the idea according to my levels of global and personal discernment, leaving me with a sort of clear picture of what is happening to our species!

This is what I know so far….

There was speculation that this energetic shift would bring up old issues to be healed….This I’ve found to be true, as many childhood/past life/other issues that I’ve dealt with over the years, have re-surfaced for final healing and release, where most of the time I just had to let the memory go, so to release it from my mental and emotional energy field.

I’ve heard many people saying they are physically affected by this energy shift…exhausted, spaced out, confused, disorientated, became ill where they needed to see their GP (even holistic therapists have sought help from allopathic treatments).  This is our body adjusting to the new energy vibration, which will indicate any pre-existing condition that needs healing, that will limit our energetic capacity for expansion. So we need to listen to what our body is telling us now, at this time.  If we feel exhausted maybe we need to rest for a while, rather than keep pushing forward toward our perceived goal.

Releasing the ego has always been a big issue for us….but if it’s our time to let it go, then it will be easier to change than to carry on as we are.  Because the opposing energy will make us feel so bad we won’t want to stay as we are!

Our mind is the Creator!  If we haven’t grasped it already, this will be the time when we realise without doubt, that we are the creators of our world, caused by the thoughts in our mind!  Our thoughts, when linked to our emotions, have the power to manifest the content of our fear/love!  Regardless of whether we realise it, or like it or not, the choice of what we manifest is ours!  Be careful what you wish for….good advice at his time I’d say!

Also, it’s useful to remember….

*We are all here to help each other!

*There is no one higher than ourselves who can help our soul evolve!

*We have all the wisdom we need within our consciousness – we just have to find a way to access that information!

*There is no single miracle cure! Miracles are happening all of the time, as every minute of the day a miracle occurs somewhere, in someone’s life.  You can all receive miracles at will! You just have to be clear about what you want to receive, let go of how it will happen, and trust that it will manifest at some time – but it must be for the highest good!

*No-one can harm you once you are on your soul path, because your perception of ’harm’ changes!

Humans are going through enforced change and have been doing so for many years.  But we are involved in a process that is in its final stages of a particular phase, that will now affect us and our lives by pushing us out of our comfort zones! We can delay it if we choose, but we can’t escape it, as earth and it’s inhabitants are protected by powers that be, that must ensure our future survival.

So, rather than resisting change, it’s probably easier to stand steady and let the change occur around you.  That way you may avoid unnecessary turbulence!

However, each of us has to work with our energy, to correct our misconceptions of life, to be accountable for our thoughts, feelings and actions! It’s our responsibility to heal our own energy, to work with our soul, our higher self, to bring us back into alignment with our true God nature!

Life becomes more comfortable once we take the emphasis off others making our life easier, and face our personal challenges with gusto!  As once we start to recognise the power we do have, to transform ourselves, we may start to use it to change our world!

Have a great day everyone!

I recently commented on a friend’s blog post, and as I thought about her, I searched in my higher mind for words of wisdom that might help her situation!

Writing short notes of wisdom is something I’ve done for years, which is how I’ve been able to compose my Insight Cards.  And whilst the guidance I seek is usually for myself, I’m pleased to say I am able to generate appropriate words for others when necessary!

I always take notice of these bites of wisdom, as I realise they are coming from my higher mind, or from one of my spiritual guides, or even God.  The messages are always compassionate, but not always clear….and most of the time I have to think about the meaning behind the words, to identify how they fit in with the situation in question.

However, there is always a sort of ‘beauty’ about the words.  Their energy touches my heart, stimulating gratefulness that my dilemma is being acknowledged by the universal helpers that surround us, reassurance that there is a way to move through my turbulent period, trust that there is a higher power that is helping me and others, and hope that eventually we will all find what we’ve been looking and waiting for!

As I’ve re-read the words I sent to my blogging friend, I feel a tug at my heart, and a resonance inside that lets me know these words are also relevant for me. So now I’m thinking about how I can use the guidance contained within these words, to catapult myself over my current self-defeating barriers.

These are those few words of wisdom that console my soul…..maybe, if you think about the meaning behind the words, they can help you too…!

‘Let not comparison smoulder your passion, but let your creativity inflame your soul enough, to lift you to your higher destination!’

Just after I published my previous post about breakdown, someone asked me to clarify the statement included below, so that is what this article today will be about. I would state beforehand, that I’m not writing as an expert on spiritual matters.  What I am doing is briefly relating what I’ve learned because of what happened to me….

“….Another cause of breakdown is when we seek entry into the spiritual realms, where our vulnerable consciousness is unprepared for the force of negative energy that we expose ourselves to, when we open our mind to the unknown spiritual forces that exist”….

I felt disillusioned that spirit was not all about love and light, as I’d believed. As my experiences showed a side of spirit I thought only existed in horror movies!  I won’t be describing those here. Only pointing out that once we start working with higher dimensions and higher consciousness, and enter into unknown spiritual realms that contain more species, good and bad, than we could possibly envisage, we can be propelled into mental experiences we are unprepared for!

Spirituality has many illogical aspects to it.  Such as miracles that happen, spiritual  beings that manifest to warn, help or heal us.  Even the fact we can communicate with dead people and entities, can be classed as unbelievable by those who doubt.  I’m not saying it’s wrong to doubt anything, as discernment is our saviour.  But humans are a composite form of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual energy.  Yet whilst we accept all other aspects, there is suspicion about our spiritual nature.  But why must it still be like this, when our spiritual nature can provide so much assistance to help us cope with physical life!

We can’t see our thoughts or painful emotions, yet we know they are real because we experience them, even if we don’t fully understand, accept or validate them.  This is what it’s like when we communicate with the spiritual world. We transmit and translate through our higher mind. So I guess this is the problem… communication is conducted intuitively through the mind, so has to be channelled, interpreted and passed on to others by the receiver.  So if we can’t see or hear what they do, how do we know they are telling the truth?

Charlatans are eager to take our money, and mediumship provides an easy way to do this because it’s individualistic, un-provable nature, can fool many.  So we have to be selective about where we place our trust regarding these matters. But what happens when we seek spiritual truth through our own higher mind.  And make contact with discarnate people, entities, angels, monsters etc., whose images fill our enquiring, yet fearful mind, stimulating fearful egotistical thoughts because we can’t seem to control what we see or think.  How do we decide what is true, what is real or imaginary? Because images extend beyond the logical parameters of tangibility, stimulating our fear responses, how do we know whether we are imagining these things, really communicating with higher intelligence, having a mental breakdown or simply going insane?

Our logical mind determines our truth and reality.  So if something doesn’t meet our criteria for being real, we question its existence. Often relying on views of other people to determine the validity of what we’ve seen, regardless of our feelings about it.  Because of ego influences, we often find it difficult to admit we’re wrong or different from others.  If others are unable to validate what we perceive, we may then go on to judge our perception as wrong, or visions imaginary, even if they’re not.  So there are those who hear, see or sense the spiritual world, but deny it because no-one else can see what they do.  This can lead the individual to believe they are hallucinating, terrorising them into the world of mental illness and all that it contains.  Whereas if their visions could be validated and accepted, they could find a way to work logically with them.

Once we start crying out to God for help, soul-searching, meditating, contacting our guides, channelling information etc., we open our mind beyond our logical parameters, and enter a dimensional reality that has different rules to the physical world.  We make contact with spiritual beings and higher dimensions through our higher consciousness.  We open our senses and our mind! We hear with our internal ears, we see through our inner eyes, and every physical sense is activated, as we prepare to feel any communication that proves we are being heard. Some people don’t see, but sense through the way they physically feel.  Others can hear. Some people can see, hear  and sense.  Whatever, the communication is conducted through the persons own mind, where most of the time no-one else sees the same images, hears the same voices or feels exactly the same, for the same reasons.

There are different ways we prove that communication is real.  A touch, a sound, a feeling.  So when we do find a way to ‘make contact’, and get proof that someone or something on the other side is responding, we naturally want to communicate more. So we reduce our protective nature, and allow our energy to become more sensitive. We open our mind and senses more, so we can gain access to more on other dimensions!  Where eventually, if we’re not careful, we start to feel ‘elation’ that we’re living in both worlds, thus without an anchor to keep us steady.

This is when we become most vulnerable, because we’re dealing with the unknown spiritual world, but allowed our logical mentality, which keeps us protected, to subside!  The problem is that not all beings on other dimensions are friendly and nice.  As some of them are distressed, angry or just plain psychopathic.  For some reason their soul has remained afloat after their physical departure, and although in the world of spirit, they’ve not received the healing they need, so still retain their physical personality and emotional defects. We believe, we trust, we fear! Thus, because we’ve opened our energy to the spiritual world, we’re like victims of slimy-handed pickpockets in a crowded market place, leaving our valuables on display to be stolen.

When working with higher consciousness, we have to learn that images are real on that level. That’s why visualisation therapy is so helpful – its reality enables us to create change, and expands our ability to manifest. But as we’re still working through our conscious mind, our egotistical fear, and unconscious mind are still in play.  Where as we explore higher dimensions, visions in the spiritual world can stimulate ego prompts that evoke fearful images and concepts from the conscious and unconscious mind, that become mingled  together. Meaning we have to understand that whilst visions in our mind may not be totally real, there are some elements that are, so we have to work out true reality!

Many people have been helped and reassured by spirit communication.  And although I’ve been helped so much over the years by loving guides, I didn’t understand the rules  of energetic world that connects everything to everything else. Most mediums I know have no real problems with the spiritual world.  And I honestly don’t know why I’ve had such a hard time.  I used protective techniques, I called upon my guides and God for help.  I did what I thought I had to do, in order to stop attracting negative energy and entities toward me.  I pray things are different now though, as whilst I feel compassion for lost souls who linger out there, my sanity is more important to me.  So whereas before I’d disregard how I felt and put their welfare first, by working with them to my detriment, if helping means compromising my energy, I will put myself first and run for safety!

I think it’s probably a good time to relate one experience here, which happened to me nearly twenty years ago.  And regardless of whether you choose to believe it, I can assure you that although I was depressed, I was not psychotic.  I was awake, it was not a dream or vision, but a real, tangible happening, that for some reason was to become just one of many that I had to learn to deal with and understand…

Laying in bed one night, feeling terribly depressed, just like many other nights I called out to God, begging… ‘Please help me.  Tell me who my guides are so I can call on them to help me.  Dear God, help me feel better!’.  Suddenly from just above me, to the right, I heard a ‘Whoosh’ sound, and saw a large hand emerge out of nowhere.  As the hand opened in the darkness of the room, I saw that it held a large white egg in its palm.  Though stunned, I felt elated!  God had finally heard my cries of despair and was giving me a gift. I reached out my hand and took the egg that was being offered to me.  I could feel its shell, but when I examined it more closely I saw two large holes in it. The hand and the egg disappeared. But as I lay contemplating this miraculous manifestation, I felt disappointed about the broken egg! ‘Why was it broken?’ I wondered, as I lay in bed, trying to come to terms with what I’d just experienced.  I pinched myself to make sure I was awake, and looked around the room to make sure I was still where I should be. Suddenly I felt something touching my breasts.  As I looked down in disbelief I could see and feel my flesh moving underneath my nightdress, as though hands were groping me.  But there was no other human in the room! As the groping became more intense I tried to move but couldn’t.  I didn’t know what to do, as I didn’t know what the hands would do to me next, and in sheer terror I screamed out loudly ‘Fuck off…leave me alone’, repeating it a few times before the groping finally stopped.  I didn’t sleep for a week after that!

Seems far-fetched doesn’t it.  Regardless, this happened to me!  I didn’t imagine it happened!

We live according to human rules, which we ignore or deviate from if we choose.  But when we enter into higher consciousness, there are strict energetic, universal laws that come into play, that will never change, regardless of how much we try to prise them one way or another.  The law of attraction dictates that like attract like, so needy people who seek solace through the spiritual world, will attract needy spiritual beings on other dimensions.  If you are angry, depressed, proud or whatever, when channelling you will most certainly draw spirits toward you that match your agenda.  This is no accident, as dealing with the troubled spirit allows healing and learning for both parties, according to the law of reaction which states ‘What you give you get!’.

When we do make contact with a spirit, and it tells us things, we should remember not to trust them until we get to know them better, and have proven their help is actually helpful to us.  As whilst there are beautiful guides available to help us, the spiritual world contains both light and dark entities, just like good and bad humans on earth.  Meaning there are some dark spirits out there who want to con us, because they want something from us.  Namely our energy!  Because when they can nestle like a parasite into our energy field, they can survive using our power.  Where eventually as they become stronger, they try to overtake our personality and live our life as their own.

You may think your guides will help, the angels will protect you.  But are you sure your guides are working for the highest good?  And are you experiencing your own feelings – or are you picking up on the feelings of an earthbound entity that has attached itself to you, because you’re feeling as bad as it, where like attracts like!

It’s a wonderful experience when we make contact with the energy of an angel, or higher spiritual guide.  Their sublime energy embraces you as you feel the warmth of their touch, or sense their presence, or  hear their words of comfort in your mind.  But it’s a different matter when you are touched by a dark entity, whose craftiness and despairing need clings on to your energy, sapping your strength and will.  The problem is, if you are already over-burdened, you may not even recognise the deepening depression, the extra-anxiety, the intensifying  feelings of heaviness on your shoulders.  You may think it’s just you!

If ever I’m in doubt, I close my eyes, put my attention to my mind, and say this out loud three times…

‘I ask my higher guides to remove all negative energy/entities from my energy system’.

I then try to sense energy rising upwards, from my body, leaving through the top of my head.  Try it whenever you feel low, see what you think!

We can choose to develop our sensitivity to such a level that we can feel other people’s pain.  We can hear their thoughts before they acknowledge them, we can sense what they are feeling and why, before even they are aware.  This is what happened to me a few years ago, where after working so hard to make myself more sensitive, my need for sanity meant I had to learn how to desensitize myself, because it didn’t feel good in any way. Opening our mind to higher consciousness means we’re able to see the truth of the world.  But we’re not used to this level of honesty and clarity, so as we try to make sense of our experiences, it can freak us out!

There are many who dismiss clairvoyance as ‘just imagination’, refusing to accept there is a spiritual reality at all. Simply because they cannot see, hear of feel what the medium can.  It’s for this reason that psychics have been classified as fraudulent, psychotic, insane, or simply having a vivid imagination.  But I am genuine and my experiences felt very real! Such as messages that proved correct, guidance that helped me and others.  Extraterrestrials who gave information about the birth of mankind and its development.  It also felt very real when I was sitting having a cup of tea one morning, when a native American guide manifested unexpectedly in front of me.  That was a total surprise I can tell you!  But these are the good things.

The bad elements also felt very real.  The aliens exiting from open vortices into our world, the hideous soul energy of murderers who still believe they have the right to harm others, the terrible pain of discarnate souls who committed suicide to find some peace, but are still earthbound.  The terror that rose in me during times I realised entities had firmly attached to me, that could drive me to the brink of insanity.  The worst of these times happened in 1987, 1996 and 2006.  Where the struggle to regain my personality after breakdown, felt very real I can assure you!

My experiences have proven the spiritual world is real to those who have opened their mind, consciousness and heart.  Images we see through our mind can be real or imagined – this is the predicament.  How do we know truth? I tried to conduct my spiritual behaviour according to my egotistical nature and its rules.  But it doesn’t work like that in the spiritual world! My energy was weak because I lacked self-confidence. I wanted to help them, but fear was so deeply ingrained within my personality that I made myself a target.

I hate it that I’ve had to experience the dark side of spirit.  I don’t feel a victim, as I know that whatever has occurred was for a valid reason. But when we lack experience, and are being fed energetically harmful information, our logical mind and physical personality can implode. Causing enormous overwhelm to our sanity, because we find it difficult to work out what is real and what isn’t any more!  Leading us to fear, with increasing terror, that we are losing our sanity, because we cannot control or stop the dark images, thoughts and feelings, that we have unwittingly welcomed into our personal energetic world!

I would clarify at this point that there are those who suffer mental health problems, for a variety of reasons, who are delusional and claim to have spiritual visitations. Where it’s vital they receive appropriate expert help.  And I accept that sometimes it’s difficult to determine if a person is unbalanced, authentically channelling information or just cold reading (as the experts call it).  My concern is, our soul energy is awakening to the call of natural evolution. Meaning we will all become more intuitive in the not too distant future.

But what will happen when your mind opens to other dimensions.  If you doubt spiritual reality, will you automatically assume the person who receives channelled guidance to be delusional, including you?  Because if so, you could hold yourself back by denying the crucial help you need! Or will you throw yourself in at the deep end, and just believe whatever you are told by beings you deem as having higher intelligence, when they have not?

This is the predicament mentioned earlier!  We live adult life according to what we were told as children.  We believed what we were told, even if it wasn’t true, because regardless, we thought ‘they’ knew better than us.  This is the same when we start to channel.  We believe spirit is good because that is what we’ve been told. We create new beliefs around our mediumship, and experience a new sense of power that we have another world at our disposal! It can make us feel very powerful, elated, in control, all-knowing and seeing.  It can also destroy our lives unless we close our mind, reject the images and allow our consciousness to come back to physical earth.  Then, next time we start communicating with other dimensions, once we’ve recovered our lucidity and trust we are sane, we will remain in control of our mind, take it more slowly and not believe every spirit is good, or knows best.

So we have to make up our own mind about what to believe, when we catch sight of dead people, angels, our guides and other entities.  And decipher whether our imagination is just running away with what we think we should be seeing, or even what we’re most afraid of seeing.  But maybe we need help to do just that!  What are your thoughts?

I don’t know about you, but I can definitely feel an energy change occurring. It sort of feels like an external to me quickening. Now I realise that universal energy and my energy are the same thing, albeit vibrating at different rates.  But because I’m a physical, conditioned human being, anything that is perceived as outside of my physical body, is automatically and naturally perceived as external to me! Until I challenge and correct this misconception!

Because I’ve worked with my energy system for many years, I’m not going to allow myself to worry about any prophesised events that may or may not be occurring to our world; as none of us really know what’s going to happen until the time has come and gone! However, my energy is my energy, and thus my responsibility. So I am concerned about the physical reaction my energy will have to the quickening universal energy! Also, how I will cope with it mentally and emotionally!

I already physically feel this energy change inside of me, mainly in my root, solar plexus and heart chakras; but also in my head. Which I’m assuming is caused by the transitional effects on our crown and higher chakras.  Emotionally, this rapid energy feels like anxiety and panic, where mentally, during times I feel compelled to run, scream or freak out,  I have to control my impulse fight and flight reaction by reminding myself that all is well, I am safe. And the whole world is not collapsing around me – even though that’s what it’s starting to feel like!

You could say I feel this way because I’m worrying about things I’ve got going on in my life at the moment.  Which wouldn’t be an unreasonable assumption!  However, there are too many people experiencing so many problem issues, that I feel it impossible for this to be the case!

The reality is that every part of us, on every level, is being affected by universal energy changes that will create a ripple effect in our energy system.  Even if you know nothing about metaphysics, are atheist, or couldn’t care a less about evolution, you will still be affected by energetic changes that are being caused by nature trying to correct itself. Because ultimately, everything that exists, is an energy form within the universal energy field!

And whilst the energy changes may create destruction and chaos to the comfort zone ‘rut’ that we’ve anchored ourselves into, we have to remember that although we will have to find a way to cope with these changes as they manifest in our life, we also have to understand the reality of why they are happening.  Otherwise, we will simply revert to egotistical power play, and try to return our upheaval back to what we class as normal.  And thus create unnecessary delay and suffering for ourselves.

So, what is it all about?  And why does our world have to change? To be honest I’m not certain yet.  As whilst there is much speculation about spiritual growth and extra-terrestrial intervention and involvement, which I could buy into, nothing I’ve received intuitively yet has absolutely corroborated this viewpoint.

However, I do believe human nature has created a disruptive energy force that could become globally catastrophic if left to it’s own devices.  Meaning the nature of life, which has it’s own laws of existence, has now been forced to step in to correct and reverse this disruption, before any further irreversible damage can occur.

It might be useful to be more specific, by using an analogy.  So here goes, remembering this is just an analogy of how our situation might look, and not a scientific explanation of how a magnet works….!

Imagine a magnet, strong and pure in itself, where the energy inside has purpose, which we have chosen to use to pick up other metal! Now see what happens if you wiggle it about in a box that contains small, individual bits of old metal.  Eventually the pure magnet would be covered and hidden by these bits of old metal. And although it would still attract other bits of metal to it, it would become less efficient and maybe eventually, if the layer of metal bits became too thick, become fragmented and lose it’s magnetic force altogether. Now, because the individual metal bits had adsorbed it, the magnet has lost it’s power and thus can’t fulfil its purpose of picking up other metal!  However, if you pull off all the small, individual metal bits, the magnet returns to its strong, pure self and becomes fully functional once more, to resume its original purpose!

So, if we liken this to us, imagine we are like that magnet; a unit of pure energy (our soul) contained within a physical body, that is designed to function flexibly and co-operatively with universal energy, for whatever reason (we don’t really know yet do we?).  Now imagine us, with all of our attachments to other people, things, money, success, fame etc., and our fears and control issues that make us resistant to change.  These things are like the small, individual bits of metal stuck to the magnet.  They have created a thick layer around us and are draining our energy. Meaning we’ve fragmented and lost our ability to energetically function as we should!

So, nature has reacted, by creating action that will rebalance its problem – which is our malfunctioning energy, by pulling off our attachments (the bits of metal) because they are draining and distorting our soul power and purpose.  Thus eventually, when we are returned to a pure energetic state, just like the magnet we will become fully functional once again! But, unlike the magnet which is energetically flexible, there is a problem for us.

Our human personality (thick layer of metal bits) is fragile, and has no central soul strength (pure magnetic force). So once our attachments (small individual metal bits) become dislodged and start to fall away, it will cause chaos to our stability because we feel exposed, and thus vulnerable. Meaning we will start to panic and flounder unless we understand what is happening to us, and realise why our life is becoming so unpredictable and uncontrollable!

So briefly, this is what I believe! Historically we’ve created ourself to believe we’re something we’re not.  But we are living a lie! That’s why so many of us are not happy, fulfilled or content!  This is all due to our spiritual soul being hidden by the baggage we carry around with us, which we strive so hard to protect and hold on to, even though it disempowers our creative abilities!  And whilst there are many who dedicate their attention and time to soul-searching and spiritual growth, and find great personal support from their religious beliefs, we have to remember that universal energy has nothing to do with religion, creed, gender, or whether we’re good or bad, fat or thin, clever or not.  But has everything to do with the science of nature, which man cannot currently control!

This means that energetic influences , that will change our lives, cannot be stopped. And whilst we may feel imposed upon, leaving us without our comfort zone for a while, instead of reactively panicking because we are afraid of losing what we have, we must find a way to stand steady. Knowing our energy, our soul, is not being destroyed. But is being restored – for our own good, in order that we can survive!

As it’s coming toward the end of 2011, I thought I’d write what is probably my last blog of the year. Just like recent years, 2011 has been a very eventful and stress-filled year for myself and for many others I know.  Perhaps you have had to cope with a few crisis points this year also!

Christmas is generally a time when we wish peace for all mankind, but I’ve been searching for peace of mind and heart for many years, where my uncomfortable and sometimes terrifying experiences, have created learning opportunities to progress my personality and my soul.  But even though I’ve educated myself to not freak out so easily, and am more able to function almost normally as each turbulent event occurs in my life, I still wonder when will life calm down! And when will I feel peace strongly enough and long enough, to build my confidence and belief, that life is getting easier because of all the work and effort I’ve put in?

Being a counselling therapist, I like to think that I can find resolutions to most problems.  Or at the very least, identify a productive way to cope with situations that are out of immediate control.  But I have to be honest and say that this soul-healing journey has brought me to my knees many times over the years, leaving me feeling vulnerable and confused whenever there was no apparent solution or remedy for the issue at hand.  Meaning I’ve had to learn how to intuitively search for the true cause and affect, in order to identify the most effective way to cope with being powerless.

I’ve adopted many coping methods to help manage my fear and anxiety as much as I can, including positive mind talk, visualisation, Emotional Freedom Technique, Reiki, reading about self-development, soul progression and spiritual emergency. And using books and cards as an oracle to clarify and guide me.  There’s also been a lot of interaction with the energy I call God, my higher mind and spiritual guides, whilst dreams, synchronistic events and universal communication have provided encouragement or insight into what I need to do next!

Also,  I have to admit to using my addiction to wine and chocolate quite a few times as well, to give me a lift, although this is rarer now.  As I realise how this type of coping causes me more problems than it resolves, as whilst I enjoy the experience at the time, my physical body pays the price for the next couple of days, which isn’t so good!

The last twenty years have been the most spiritually intense of my life. Yet regardless of all the learning and understanding I have acquired over this time, I still feel as though I know little about universal energy, and it’s laws of existence that affect every living thing!  There are thousand of books written about spiritual issues, where the author submits their own interpretation of what spiritual growth means to us humans.  There are numerous techniques for coping, and informational websites to add clarity, but yet the ‘answer’ we seek still remains elusive doesn’t it!

We’re human so we like to label things in order to understand them.  Once we’ve got a problem labelled, we can then proceed to find a solution, resolution or cure!  But this simplified ideology is not working any more, because we’ve advanced our simplified understanding. So because what worked in the past fails to work now, we must seek new answers, new resolutions and new ways of coping that actually make us feel better, without adding to our distress. And once we understand more about the process of life that the universe exerts upon us, we can start to consciously work with it to ensure the best outcome to situations!

But that is easier said than done, because the answers we seek, that would help us become more confident, can often only be found through our higher mind and our own intuitive consciousness, that many have blocked access to, because of the ego. There are many misconceptions about the ego.  I identify it simply as a fear prompt that is designed to alert us to danger, and guide us to take evasive action of some sort!

Ego is a fearful, reactive, protective yet often destructive side to our personality, that we develop because we became afraid at some time in the past. There are many who say we should ‘kill’ the ego, but the reality is we developed our personal ego in such a way to protect us from intense bad feelings and experiences, so the more we try to destroy it, the more it will resist and strive to protect itself and us.  So instead of spending life trying to destroy our ego, we need to be re-training our thoughts to not respond to egotistical fear thinking, that struggles to survive by trying to keep us locked into past painful memories and negative coping tactics.

We all want to avoid fearful-to-us situations if we can. But I’ve come to believe that instead of becoming more peaceful as more people seek soul healing, the world is becoming more turbulent, because  people within it are struggling to survive emotionally, physically or financially, and are becoming more reactive and defensively destructive.  I believe the reason for this to be about enabling us to identify our strengths and weaknesses, in order that we deal with them and the crisis more appropriately.

Whilst I hoped one day to be able to proudly announce ‘I changed the world’ (my ego talking), it’s clear to me now that I can only change me, by managing my emotions, actions and thoughts in a more creative, productive way.  I also realise that it’s only when there are many others who make the decision to do the same, that the world will become more peaceful, simply because more people have become less reactive and destructive, to both themselves and others!

Until then the world will remain volatile, the people and new generations will remain destructive. And we will probably continue to feel powerless! So, what’s the best way to approach life considering all of this?

I believe there will always be something to make us scared, meaning we can’t always avoid our fear – regardless of how hard we try! So the simple answer is to learn how to change the old habits of our historic lifetime, and learn how to not be afraid of our fear!  This means reducing our fear by challenging panic thoughts and feelings that make us want to run away or hit out! We can make the effort to learn how to calm our mind and body, and when the rug gets pulled out from under our feet, as it will, we can learn how to stand steady until the crisis passes. As sometimes, collapsing or standing steady is all we can actually do!

Each year has its own energetic force! So I usually tap in with my new diary each year in December, and try to feel the incoming energy.  A lot of the time I’ve been close, including this year 2011, which I designated was about closing loose ends, finishing unfinished business and being in the right place emotionally to take the next step forward physically in 2012.

I’ve read that 2012 is the year of miracle manifestation.  Because of my personal situation at the moment, where I have fear for the future of my family members, I can’t get a clear fix on next year.  But I’m hoping for the miracle to happen, that will prove to us light-workers that our work and our suffering has not been in vain!  That our heart will start to beat faster with love and passion instead of anxiety, dread and panic! And that we will get a clue about where our real vocation lies, which means that we can start to really share the truth of what we’ve become, because we’ve done all the necessary preparation!

It’s always good to have an ongoing project to keep us focussed.  Five years ago I wrote a book about how my fear was created during childhood, and describe some of my spiritual crisis points.  It took me about seven weeks to write, and I cried virtually all of the time I was writing it.

The book has been rewritten about four times and has been sitting in my box with lots of other unused writing.  So for my 2012 project I intend to publish this book, which explains how I encountered a terrifying spiritual world, that I believed was harmless, because no-one told me there were entities that could over-power my will.  I will keep you posted on its progress!

But for now, I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a truly happy 2012.  I also ask that you and every living thing on earth receives healing, that will enable freedom from fear, joyful living, positive health, and an abundance of all good things to enter your life, including money and success!

Sending you love, light and many blessings,

When will we stop struggling and just let ourselves be who we really are? And when will we be able to see that happiness is already inside our heart, where we just have to remove our cloak of fear to let it shine through our mind and out into our world? There is only one answer to this, and that is… when we stop waiting for others to make it happen, and make the decision to do it for ourself!

Even though it may appear we have little control of the world at the moment, we have to remember that real power doesn’t come through ruling others, but by being in charge of ourself! Also that when our mind is confused it can cause a physiological response which triggers panic, vulnerability and anxiety, which even though makes us feel worse, can be effectively dealt with when we know what to do about it!

When we connect with our intuitive mind and follow synchronistic guiding signs which give us the ‘uh ha’ moments that help us understand what to do next, we don’t have to worry about ‘what if..’.  As once we learn to recognise and accept internal and external prompts, which synchronicity provides through our
intuitive mind, there is less fear of the unknown, because we know we only have
to ask for guidance to receive it.

And because we can trust we will know what to do as and when required, there is less need to worry, therefore our generalised anxiety is able to reduce its intensity!

Many people believe that life is already mapped out, and whilst I believe this is true to some degree, I know that our thoughts, emotions, choices and actions are the main driving forces which dictate whether we find the happiness and success we seek. Which means that if our mind and emotions are out of our control, then so is our future and our destiny!

However, it’s our lack of understanding and wisdom that causes us to panic when the going gets tough, so it would help if we could believe that even though our destiny is governed by linear and universal time, which we have no control over, both good and bad elements are already present in our pathway and are programmed to activate at specific times in our future. Whereby we might then be more able to go with the flow and accept that we have a beginning (birth) an end (death), and that the bit in the middle which is our life, is there for us evolve within!

But whilst it is safe to assume that some specific events are located along our life pathway, we have to guard against complacently waiting for good things to happen to us. Because the reality is that we have to create ways to see hidden opportunities whenever we feel stuck, and also develop the ability to create new opportunities when the need arises.

We also have to learn to tolerate enforced societal change, as change is inevitable and necessary. But as this country declines whilst the younger generation climb to the top of their influential mountain of ego supremacy, few have any real concerns about the future developments of our country or world, because they believe they don’t have the power to influence it, or simply because they just don’t care!

Whilst I support the idea that we don’t have the automatic right to denigrate others, I believe we are being forced to endure prohibitive human rights dictates, that are just absurd bureaucratic rules, which unnecessarily inhibit our growth by restricting our language, freedom of speech, opinion and power!

Bullies remain bullies until people stand up and confront their false power. But we are not allowed to stand up for ourself in case we offend someone’s hypocritical feelings, where our English legal system sometimes seems to impose greater importance on political or financial issues, rather than bestowing appropriate punishment on criminals who destroy peoples lives.

The law is always under scrutiny, and rightly so, where different governments impose different sanctions to resolve the same problems and win votes at the next election! But guess what! Politics, law and their rules still often work against the people they were intended to help! Some preventative government strategies are clearly not working, but still more money is thrown into them as millions of pounds are spent each year trying to stop us smoking, drinking, taking drugs, teenage pregnancies, and eating what we choose, whilst our health and welfare services are starved of cash and thus can’t provide the services that are demanded from them?

But whilst we all resist change to a certain degree, is it okay that strategies that are supposed to initiate progress are governed by their financial profitability, and lead us back into the dark ages where people had to unite and rebel before they were heard? Which means that even though we are in the new millennium, we have learned nothing about what progress really means, as we are being forced by circumstance to repeat old inferior/superior ‘they’ve got/I want..’ patterns of fighting for individual power and financial security!

However admirable, the legislative philosophy of ‘prevention is better than cure’ is clearly not working, so instead of trying to fix dysfunctional behavioural problems by imposing ineffective protective strategies, why don’t we just start using accountability as the rule of life. Whereby instead of placating the ‘give me/fix it for me’ mentality of those who can’t be bothered to make the effort to look after their lives, people are taught that if you create a problem, you have to sort it out. (This obviously does not refer to those genuinely in need).

I place no blame on specific individuals or departments for the anomalies in our society, caused by the various try and fail government dictates, but do fear that unless human mentality considers the bigger picture of life, we humans are headed for disaster!

But what do you think about the country you reside in, and what changes would you like to see in place for your future?  Think about it now, as time has a habit of reaching us before we are fully prepared, so get your thinking cap on and start to explore ways of better society management. Try to find resolutions in your mind and get clear images of what sort of things might make a difference to the future. Work out a plan which shows how the differences could be activated and how they might improve life. What would life be like then, what would change, how would that feel?

Feel the positive energy that would be generated by those changes. Regardless of how impossible it might seem now, you have the ability to create marvellous opportunities to change the world and manifest your ideas into reality – not by striving to continue the well-trodden cyclical pathways of historical power-driven ego, but by casting new ideals about life. Where you search for ways to combine human individuality with a society that has power, integrity and respect for life, and then working toward the same beneficial goals with like-minded others.

You don’t have to be clever to make positive contributions to life, but you do have to use your wisdom, and let the universe show you how to use your soul power. But to do that you need to open your objective mind and restrain the fear that distorts your creativity! You have to want to live a better life and be willing to change the parts of yourself that were created from the fear of your ancestors, where instead of just resisting rules you create a new, more appropriate set of guidelines for the future.

Once you learn to overcome obstacles, you will realise just how brave, strong, confident and capable you really are. But this is a skill that needs to be learned, and that takes time and patience! So when you strive to justify yourself by proving you are superior to others, try to remember that you are probably feeling vulnerable at some level and what you really need is to experience feelings which confirm you have the right to be!

Life is complicated and so are humans, and the sooner we understand how to manage ourselves, the simpler life will become! As technology advances your mind is already programmed to function far beyond the abilities of any computer currently known to man. But if you continue to react through fear every time you are challenged, you will reinforce the limitations imposed on society by old self-protective survival patterns, keeping them alive!

However, if you make the decision to create a new way of life by living authentically, productively and effectively, whilst giving respect to all life forces, your higher mind will be able to guide and support the creation of your new ideas for the future world, and you will be able to reach your full potential! So what will you use to guide you and your life – your ego and fear, or your universal power and intuitive wisdom?

Regardless of which way you choose to live your life, please remember that it’s never too late to change, and that the way you deal with every experience, good or bad, leads to another experience that will follow. Therefore as it’s your thoughts and actions that create the negative or positive outcome of your experiences, that will ultimately determine whether you feel good or bad, whenever possible look for the most beneficial long-term solution in the bigger picture, rather than just striving to feel good for that moment in time!

Good luck!!

In a way I’ve started this blog for personal gain, because I want to help others understand the world in the simplistic, metaphysical way that I do. But whilst it would be rather nice to be recognised for being helpful to society,  the whole point of my writing is to emphasise the fact that life becomes so much harder when we try to survive this current world using outdated thinking styles, which we hang on
to because we mistakenly think they’re working for us, or because we simply don’t
think about our thought process at all!

Our belief system (or frame of reference as I like to call it), is programmed by our historical past. And whilst it’s been normal for the past to run in repetitive cycles, meaning we understand what’s going on because we’ve seen it all before throughout our history, life has now taken us on a different route that will ultimately change our society, us,  and the world forever!  But we have not been equipped to deal with these changes, and until we are life will not get any easier for us!

Most of us know all too well about our emotions.  We know when we feel upset, angry, irritated, loving or sad because we can feel pain in our physical body.  Our emotions hurt us, but we often think our pain is being caused by someone or something else, whereby we start to impulsively react to the way we feel, when really it’s our own thoughts that are creating our emotional pain reaction!  But whilst we recognise emotional pain, our mental torture is often disguised by our ego, or hidden within our anxiety, where we remain unaware of the constant stream of valid and invalid information we inject into the consciousness that creates our  reality.

Many people are living in despair because they feel  unable to create the benefits of the world they desire, where their frustration, grief, anger and sadness has no place to go but within. And whilst our society and financial decline continues to worsen, evoking the fear of survival in those who are struggling to live in a dignified way, people have turned to self-help strategies or life ‘gurus’ to try to find a way to help them cope with how they feel.  Proving the need for new information to help us cope with our life, who we are, and the way we feel!

Incidents of depression, anxiety, stress and suicide are climbing steeply, as people of all ages struggle to manage how they feel about their dwindling power to survive and grow. So as our normal coping strategies are failing to work any more,  and because we’re feeling so vulnerable, we’ve developed a reactively aggressive society that encourages the belief that there are only two ways to survive…hide or fight, comply or rebel, be or not be!  But we must start to recognise that whilst our reality is all we know, it is not all there is!

Historically we’ve been led to believe that if we fight hard enough for what we want we will get it! ‘Persevere’ I was told at school, and I did, all the time! As time and  time again I repeated old patterns of attitude and behaviour that wasn’t working for me.  But I didn’t give up persevering  because I believed what I’d been told by the adults and experts around me, so thought I had to fight others, myself, or situation to get what I truly wanted.  But my frame of reference was wrong – for me, and because I wasted so much time persevering and fighting, with myself mainly, life passed by without me being able to experience the feelings of fulfilment and contentment I yearned to experience!

We’ve all been hurt in some way, at some time, by another, meaning we’re all wounded soldiers of life! This is part of society as it has been! And it’s because we’ve been hurt that we live with a protective cloak around us, that constantly monitors our personal comfort and safety level.  We’re on alert all the time in case someone
offends us, or attacks us, or wants to cheat or hurt us.  And the more alert we become to the dangers within our increasingly aggressive society, the more anxious, fearful and alert we become. Which constantly feeds the belief that the world is not a safe place for us to be, making us feel even more afraid!

But our fear has historical roots that we can sever, if we become aware of how our thoughts increase our anxiety. When we meet a challenge of any sort our anxiety will naturally increase our adrenalin flow, creating physical sensations that  are driven by our comfort level sensors, and which can often escalate into panic attacks if our anxiety and fear thoughts lock together.  But if you are aware of what your thoughts are telling you, you can choose to disbelieve them, and then intervene and offer yourself some reassurance.

I’ll use this example to help you understand a little more!  A dear friend of mine had a really strong superstitious fear from childhood, related to seeing one magpie.  She remembered the old childhood tale about one for sorrow, two for joy etc., and each time she saw just one magpie she would almost freeze in horror, groan ‘Oh no!’, and touch her collar (because that was supposed to cancel the bad luck charm).

Now the psychologist in me knows there is probably a bad experience linked in there somewhere, but that knowledge wasn’t helping my friend to cope with her phobia!  So as I wanted to find a way to help her be less afraid, I made a point of watching the magpies in my garden and local areas, and noticed that they usually live in pairs and groups.  So for a little while, when I saw one magpie I would wait a few minutes, whereby another would appear, and then saw that others would often follow.

The next time I was having a cuppa with my friend I told her what I’d discovered.  I described what I’d observed and reassured her that after seeing a single magpie she would probably see others, if she waited a little while. ‘Oh’ she said.  ‘I never realised that!’.  Two months later we were chatting, and she told me her fear of magpies was completely gone.  And that because of what I’d told her she had been able to reassure herself, and thus changed her thought association from being fearful, to knowing that everything was ok.

All this happened because she had learned some new information which challenged what she believed, so now she realised that seeing a single magpie doesn’t mean it is a single magpie, or that it will result in sorrow as the rhyme would have us believe!

This is the simplicity of re-framing our thoughts that anyone can do!  It isn’t that difficult, but it can be challenging, because first you have learn how to hear, listen and become aware of your thoughts, then you have to learn how to decipher their message.  Then, when you have achieved this, you will gain the power of discernment, where you can learn how to choose to believe your thoughts or not!

The most important thing to remember is that because we are all wounded soldiers of life, we are carrying our pain around with us.  We are fearful of being hurt even more, so we increase protective strategies that may make us feel secure, but are not  serving our higher purpose of growth and freedom! So because we are overly reactive and afraid, we owe it to ourselves to find an appropriate way to console the fear that is trying to relive the past through us. But we can only do this by becoming more self-observant, and learning new ways to help us cope with our paradoxical mind and life.

So finally for now, what about if you take a look at your phobias and fears, identify and understand their roots, and just like my friend find a way to change your perception of what you believe as truth. You never know, it might make you feel a lot better! I’ll be back soon, but if you want to leave a comment please do so, and if you want further help please visit my website http://www.chrissiebatten.com or buy my book Mentality – How Changing Your Mind Can Change Your Life and the World!

See you soon,
