Enjoy Altered State while reading the post.
As Divine Light continues to infiltrate the planet, it brings to the surface any remaining darkness. So we see in the world, acts of horror toward others, toward self, and it seems to be heating up. From domestic violence, to suppressing, controlling and murdering women and children in the name of honor and religion.
The old order is rearing its ugly head in attempts to maintain the status quo. If you were not so enlightened, you would begin to feel the world is going to hell and humanity is going backwards in its evolution.
But we know better. We go deeper and we recognize that there is a personal and global purging taking place. The light exposes all those parts of us that resided in the dark, that didn’t feel loved by us. Our physical, mental and emotional bodies have been purging old patterns. They come up to be acknowledged and released.
As difficult as it feels sometimes hearing about the atrocities in the world, even in our own communities, we are beginning to honor all those involved, both victims and perpetrators. Why? Because we all have played both roles, in other lifetimes, both ‘good guys’ and ‘bad guys’. Maybe it was a class war, a race war, a religious war, a gender war, but it all boiled down to – what we refused to face within ourselves, we projected outward onto an enemy, the government, the church, the opposite sex, the devil or another tribe. Even as light workers we were not yet ready to embrace our darkness (our own fears, our sadness, or feelings of abandonment). We have all been projecting since the beginning of time in one form or another. But it was all part of the great experiment called life on earth. We separated ourselves for so long in order to come back together and reclaim our divine nature. Women have taken a particularly difficult path in an effort to balance out a time when they too abused their power, because at one time the matriarchal dominated in societies, and manipulated men for their own benefit. So men became distrustful of the feminine. (and now the Divine Feminine is coming back into her balance with the Divine Masculine). So you see, we all participated in the most incredible game going on anywhere in the universe! And the so-called darkness that we all tried so desperately to disown was actually our gift to ourselves. It helped us to recognize how we were separating ourselves from ourselves.
So as much as we want collective change, equality for all, we know that the only true change starts with each individual, no matter what country or circumstances they find themselves in. There are still many on the planet who are truly not ready for their freedom. Why? Because freedom takes tremendous trust. True freedom requires a commitment to self that many are not ready to make. You, my dear light workers, starseeds, new energy pioneers, have that courage and that trust. You are allowing the darkness to reside within the light. You know that all those lifetimes where you did battle with your enemies are just soul experiences – all leading to your final lifetime of freedom and enlightenment. So the dark feelings, the dark acts, were just that, acts, on an enormous stage, with billions of other actors.
So we’ve learned that what we repress in ourselves will invariably find expression. Either as a bodily imbalance or as drama with others. Those committing acts of cruelty are also expressing the repressed emotions of a collective consciousness, just as children and pets do for their guardians.
Being free is detaching from the world news. Seeing it for what it is. Not responding to it from a place of anger and vindictiveness. Being free is allowing all the emotions to come and go within us, not just the ‘nice’ ones. When we say, “I want my freedom!”… when we make that choice, we must expect change, and not always so comfortable. At least at first. That’s because it will bring up all the places we are feeling un-free. Initially freedom can be frightening to someone who has been in a self-made prison for so very long. No one or nothing to blame anymore. Having to take total responsibility for their life, for their happiness. It can send many good men and women right back to the safety and certainty of their cells!
Inner freedom begets outer freedom. As we continue allowing the release of our limiting patterns and self judgements we will find the world around us responds in kind. And it doesn’t matter what’s going on in the Middle East or with the economy or with your children at that point. No, you probably won’t be able to part the seas or walk on water, but you will find the inner peace that so many think is just a fairy tale.
