We live in a very seductive world. We are constantly being seduced. We are being seduced into drama, we are being seduced into worry, fear, and victimhood on a regular basis.
Those of us who made the choice for embodied enlightenment are no exception to that. If we are not being seduced by the outside we are being seduced by the thoughts of our mind. There is a prevailing belief that we are limited beings. That we have only so much time, so much money, so much health, so much love. As we are letting go, as ascending beings, of the old patterns and old beliefs and limitations, there is an escalating struggle with the mind. After all, the mind tells us, what would life be like without drama? Without struggle? Without worry and concern and fear? That is the way the mind controls and assists us or so it believes.
That belief is reflected in our literature, TV shows and movies. If there is not some sort of drama, don’t we lose interest pretty quickly? There needs to be some sort of challenge and then some sort of resolution, and that satisfies our mind…and understandably. The mind loves challenges and it loves solving things. Unfortunately though, as far as providing joy and creating enlightenment for us, it does not have a clue.
So it is very easy to get seduced into the ramblings of our mind, even though that mind of ours is not equipped to really understand how to create for us. And that leaves us in a place where we feel quite out of control. Many of us are just beginning to trust our soul and to trust that our soul is what brings us joy and fulfillment. Our soul wants to work with us and wants us to trust it enough to allow it to create for us what our heart desires. We are beginning to feel on a more tangible level that kind of love and devotion. And as this happens, our mind will try even harder to seduce us with its fears. But it takes moving out of our comfort zone of responding to our mind and all its emotions. It requires us to move into our soul zone.
Meanwhile, Our mind, while it does appreciate the break, is also not quite trusting enough yet to allow this new relationship to bloom fully. So in the meanwhile it will still try to seduce us back into reacting to the worry, concern, and fear. Our mind is a bottomless well of questions without answers. But we are beginning to get wise to that dynamic. While we allow and acknowledge all of the feelings that come up, we are beginning to shift away from them more quickly and into what do we want to feel. And our standards are raising in terms of what we want to feel.
WE ARE RAISING THE BAR
We have been raising our standards in terms of what jobs we will take, what relationships we will become involved in, and now we are raising our standards in terms of what we choose to feel no matter what’s happening within us or around us. And that’s because we are beginning to see how potent our feelings are in terms of creating our reality. In fact they are becoming even more potent in this new energy.
So we are becoming less seduced by those feelings of hopelessness, and worry or whatever else may be coming up. Of course there’s a lot for the mind to feel fearful of because it believes it’s being replaced or worse! And it’s biggest fear is it can’t protect us. And it is OK to allow the mind to have its feelings. But now its questions and concerns need to become more background and we need to shift into our soul and its feelings of joy need to become the foreground of our life.
Just as you can’t afford to allow yourself to be seduced by mass consciousness, or a relationship that isn’t right for you or a job or any situation outside yourself that compromises your joy, you can’t afford to allow yourself to be seduced by the emotions of your mind. As you begin to love yourself more, naturally things will come up to be cleared, whether it is physical or emotional. But your mind sees those as negative and reacts to them with fear and concern. It does not understand that you are going through a recalibration and that things will come up that need to be released. But now you can’t afford to respond to those feelings as if they are your truth, because then they become your truth. This does not mean pushing those feelings away or suppressing them. It means allowing them to be there, even to feel them, whether it is sadness or anger, whether it’s fear, doubt, grief or hopelessness. Even boredom, that feeling of being so disconnected from it all. But to also know that those emotions are not you. They are not yours. That will take some practice. Most people suppress their feelings because they are so afraid of being consumed by them. But we on the Ascension path are adept at working with both dark and light energies. We understand that the dark emotions had their source from the light originally, so they are to be loved as much as the light.
The emotions sometimes feel like unruly children who we just can’t seem to control. But if you look at it as the mind trying to seduce you, then you could separate yourself a little easier from those emotions. You may have had an experience with someone, an adult or a child, who tried to manipulate you emotionally, with either tears or anger. You may have found yourself giving in initially. But then you saw that they were playing a game with you and, once you became wise to that, they did not have the same power over you anymore. In fact, over time, they stopped being so manipulative with you because they saw that it didn’t really work very well.
The same is true for your mind. After a while it will recognize that you’re not responding to it. It will also recognize that you are not rejecting it either. You still love it and you still want it to come with you into the new energy. And ultimately your mind and your human personality and all its aspects will be very relieved that they no longer are responsible for your life!
