Important information to check

Quite energetically "sparky" out there this year isn't it? So, what's new – maybe not new - actually a bit more than that, eh? 

The old chestnuts seem to be coming back and:

·       night sweats

·       palpitations

·       lethargy

·       body pains

·       anger

·       depression 

are all fairly high on the list.

We are none of us immune are we? It is at times like this that I am reminded of the late Vicky Wall's advice (creator of Aura-Soma), “keep trimming your wicks!" - which seems to say it all.

In no particular order, here are a few suggestions to dowse over and clear:

Love is the Only Karma, Amanda Roberts

Spirit is the source of all life and has always existed. It is infinite consciousness, constantly growing and extending itself.  Spirit created us to be expressions of it, so all souls come from spirit and all souls therefore must always have existed as spirit.  Spirit expresses itself as unconditional love for us; it is creative, joyful and knows only wholeness. Intellectually many of us accept that we are all one on a bigger spiritual level and that we are an expression of spirit, but find it hard to experience and understand with our whole be-ing, and to believe it on a practical physical, mental and emotional level.

Our individual karma is stored within our soul or akashic records. These records are of everything the soul has experienced since it was formed from the Divine blueprint of spirit, with all the physical and non-physical existences it has experienced.  These records are of our individual mental and emotional human expression. This human expression is what we often perceive as karma but actually are false beliefs we ourselves have set up through duality consciousness and through the energy we create and hold onto with our ‘stories’.  All stories and events that occur within our lives are neutral but the emotional energy we create around a story and hold tightly onto as we retell it, or own it creates discordant energies like self punishment and low self esteem.

This duality consciousness leads to a false belief in separation of ourselves from spirit and each other. This belief in separation is the source of all suffering. Love though is the only karma and there is no situation we experience or know of that enough love cannot heal.

As we move into a state of higher consciousness and vibration we need to look at duality within us and society and start to consciously move away from it.

Duality has dominated our society and consciousness for centuries and it is now time to transform it as it leads to discord within us, our families and communities. By duality we are talking about judgements and perceptions like good/bad, right/wrong and harmony/dis-harmony.

Duality is caused by us having false beliefs, perceptions, judgements on who we are and what we are capable of achieving. It is our smaller self or ego who tells us we are not good enough, that we cannot achieve our dreams and causes us to come from lower levels of consciousness where we experience emotions like anger, greed and fear. These emotions vibrate at a lot lower frequency than emotions like love, joy, peace and harmony. When we are in them we dis-like the world and ourselves and can easily slip into blame mode, being defensive and also into victim mentality. Physically our posture changes – we tend to slump; we have less energy; our facial features become less attractive; we can feel physically cold and fatigued; our aura collapses in and we quite literally often have a ‘dark cloud’ around us. All of this takes away our personal power as we are giving it away to others by not taking personal responsibility for everything that happens to us.

Our emotions, beliefs, perceptions and judgements create the reality of our lives which is reflected within the environment in which we live.

Love brings us to the understanding of oneness with spirit, of the universe – which in itself is an expression of spirit. We are spiritual beings within a physical body and love is the true expression of this. When we are coming from a place of unconditional love we feel among other things a deep sense of happiness, fulfilment, contentment and joy with ourselves, others and in our environment. If we accept love as the only true karma then we need to look at emotions that arise like unhappiness, anger, depression and see them as gifts from our shadow side from which we can learn and grow through dealing with them.

Fear is the opposite of love and is a misperception of being separate from spirit. This belief of separation is the cause of all suffering that we experience while in the physical world. Fear operates at low levels of consciousness and emotions like anger, greed and hate are fear based. Fear for example of being hurt, being wrong/wronged – anger; fear of not being as good as someone else (status), of having less than them – greed; fear can cause malice, active dislike – hate. Fear of being alone is one of the biggest and leads to feelings like isolation, of being different, of not belonging and of being left out. These emotions are illusions and delusions, coming from our own negative tendencies. This causes us unnecessary suffering due to false beliefs of not understanding the true magnificent power of who we are and therefore of who we are capable of being.

Being connected and connecting is one of the most fundamental human needs. We are naturally a very social species. As the saying goes ‘no man is an island’. We need to feel connected to others, to have a sense of belonging within our families, work, neighbourhood and communities. Feeling connected means we are heart based and coming from love. Love brings forth emotions and concepts like gratitude, compassion, courage, abundance and success. Feeling connected and love also means feelings like loss and grief will occur as friends and family die or move away. 

The key is to feel these emotions like loss and grief, embrace them, acknowledge them and pass through them but not to indulge in them, judge them and not to stay stuck within the story the loss creates. Feelings move through us like the weather moves where as e-motions are feelings in motion and that is when we keep re-telling a story making it bigger and bigger – therefore we stay in emotions. Indulging in these emotions lowers the vibration of our energy, causing feelings of isolation and loneliness as ‘no-one understands us’ and starts us on the vicious circle of expressing ourselves from separation consciousness.  

Relationships often break down when a key person such as a parent or child dies due to the grieving person choosing to stay within the ‘grief story’. This causes separation between a couple as the less affected partner feels locked out of the process and helpless. Both partners in this scenario choose to come from hurt and anger with each other rather than unconditional love – creating separation between them.

However we all know of stories [from the press] where a child has died due to violence yet the parents coming from a place of love, from their true spiritual selves, forgive the perpetrator. This means their lives are not dominated by bitterness, hatred, rage and revenge which is destructive towards themselves rather than the perpetrator of the violence. The perpetrator meanwhile is responsible for his/her actions and his/her responses to this.

Gandhi said ‘Be the change you want to see’. If you want to assist in creating a world of peace, where we respect one another and our environment  then we need to be that change, to ‘walk our talk’ and recognise that if we express the true essence of who we are then we will come from a place of love. Our consciousness will raise itself to a place where we can come from our greater self. As I tell my students we are all capable of becoming the next Ghandi or Mother Teresa.

Spirit allows us choice in how we express ourselves. We can choose to come from duality consciousness or to come from love and oneness and by doing so help to co-create a new higher consciousness within our world.

Of good and evil
There is a field
I will meet you there
