To be fully aware and embracing of all that is within us and consciously seeking to be all that we can be is our most noble quest. - Carl Gustav Jung
I am mentoring a young person who asked me to help him become more spiritual and free of dark forces. I teach a variety of different techniques of Psychic Self Defense and Spiritual Protection. But all of them depend on one thing - that your heart be open to experiencing great spiritual love.
My student has never been in love before. This article is based on the many emails I wrote him. The ideas in this article apply to the lives of countless people, young and old, who have never been in love. I hold a flame of love in my heart burning at all times, like Vesta, and feel love very deeply. Sometimes I find myself drowning in empathy for the suffering of others. Sometimes a call to a greater love, compassion or forgiveness leads me through a dark night of the soul. Shamans have multiple dark nights of the soul in their lives; it is simply part of our path, to be put through great suffering, to face great darkness, to become more empowered, clear, compassionate and acting from integrity, through those struggles. True love has nothing to do with valentine candy and shopping, which is what pop culture reduced love to. Genuine Love is the quality of a truly empowered awakened person, in alignment with universal truth and divine consciousness. Love is the core quality of a Spirit Warrior / Light Warrior, prepared to protect, fight for, live or die for those whom he or she loves and cares about. Strength of character to do the right thing, and the physical strength to carry that out, can come only from a loving heart.
Many spiritual, sensitive, empathetic people, often feel they don’t belong here, on this planet. Some don’t feel welcome/ invited to contribute their gifts and talents. They feel life on this planet is too brutal, harsh, hellish. They want to go home, even if they are not sure where home is. Light Workers, Light Warriors, and indigos, often feel this way, at any age.
Their feelings are correct. The world is insane, its nature is cruel, loveless, compassionateless, empathiless, because this world has been cut off from the divine Creator, and has been used as a tool for the dark forces; it has been a machine designed to vampirize human beings. The movie The Matrix illustrates that. But human nature is not like that at all. Human nature is divine, because its rooted in divine Spirit, or Great Spirit, as Native Americans call it. It is reflected in the soul, felt in the heart, and expressed through feelings that are felt in the heart. Feelings are the language of the soul. Feelings is how you truly know yourself. Feelings is the compass by which you know what you are attracted to and repulsed by. Feelings guide you on your journey towards enlightenment. If you deny your feelings, you deny your true nature. And this is precisely what people are told they must do to succeed in this world.
Your soul and your thoughts are totally different things. The soul is your connection to divinity. The mind is a tool to carry out the mission of the soul. But for many the mind had become hijacked by ego (which is fear based) and has become a tool for the ego to carry out its agendas, which are in direct opposition to the soul (which is love based). This is why many ancient Eastern traditions teach that you must focus the mind, concentrate, meditate, discipline your mind. Once it is disciplined, focused, sharp, and under the control of a strong will, it can serve the heart again. The heart is the control center of the soul. It is where all the real decisions are made, that impact your soul’s growth, and its where you choose your direction of growth and exploration.
The planet is full of people who have layers upon layers of wounds, from past and current lives, tribal wounds, Ancestral wounds, collective human wounds, etc. People who live with broken hearts, that are walled off and shut down, make decisions with their minds. They have identified with their thoughts, they think they are their thoughts, they forgot they are their soul. So they do not live in their soul. This is madness. And the Annunaki, draco, reptilians, the Archons, they take advantage of this condition. The dark forces hook into people’s souls and minds, control the mind, and suck out the energy out of the soul. They implant ideas and thoughts into people’s minds to carry out agendas, and people think they thought of those things themselves. They think that since they thought it, it must be true! Many people on the planet do not control their minds; this is ‘blue pilled’, its living unconsciously, living from the wound and the shadow.
Your soul is very powerful. You may not know this yet. You may know nothing about yourself at this time, the real you that is, if you were taught in your family and society to identify with your mind. Its a long journey back to your soul, and you have to undertake it courageously, with support from those who have gone ahead of you and came back to help those who are doing it for the first time.
The mind produces endless fear based thoughts. None of them are ‘true’. By itself, the mind is critical, fault finding. The mind’s thoughts are not coming from love or wisdom. The mind is just a tool that seeks to dissect and separate. The mind, by itself is very superficial, and doesn’t see the truth of things, or into the depth of matters. So if you identify with your mind and let your thoughts control you, you will not feel love, you will be critical, fault finding, superficial, and separate from others. Isn’t that how society is?
Instead, focus your mind, discipline it, concentrate it on the goal of achieving your life mission (dharma) and consciously and deliberately produce thoughts which will help you to accomplish that. You probably heard this before, but your thoughts create your reality. What you think about, you attract or manifest or create. Because many people don’t control their minds, their minds get highjacked and used by dark forces to create what the dark forces want to create, a reality where they thrive and human beings are slaves. It creates an inside out and backwards world, where black is white and white is black. Complete confusion. And people have no idea how to stop that. They do not possess their minds. Someone else is in their minds, and they have been kicked out of their minds. Isn’t that the definition of insanity? And isn’t that how society is?
But if you become very clear about who you are (that you are your soul and not your mind) and what your true desires are (in the soul), what your true feelings are about everything, if you become conscious of your life mission here on Earth; and then focus and discipline your mind to only produce thoughts that are in alignment with your highest goals, your greatest spiritual aspirations of what you want to achieve here on this planet; and you protect your mind, your heart, and your life from invasion from the dark forces - then you become a force to be reckoned with. Because then you become a true creator. You become what Prime Creator intended you to be here. You create your own reality, not the dark forces, nor your parents, nor society, nor your Ancestors, nor your past life patterns, nor your DNA.
Many people have never learned this from their parents, or in school, or in any popular books. But its what is critical for each person, especially the spiritually oriented persons, light workers and light warriors, to understand at this time, to escape the ‘prison’ of the matrix; the prison of loneliness people feel, because they have been trapped in their minds, looking at an insane world and not finding themselves reflected in it.
You will not see your true Self reflected in it, until YOU CREATE THAT WORLD FROM THE TRUE SELF. In actuality, you co-create it with others. But you would go about it, in the same way I described above.
If you are new to the path of awakening, your real self is suffering deep inside you. Your wounds may be beyond you to heal. But you must start somewhere. As long as you are numb to your suffering, you cannot grow and get out of your prison. You have to feel everything. This is key. You must allow yourself to feel all feelings, positive, negative, and everything in between. Not get stuck on any of them, but let them pass through you, like electricity. This is how you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. Feelings are the way out.
Love is the ultimate red pill that would wake you up to feel all things as they really are. Everyone on the planet has had many heart breaks. It takes courage and real strength of character to fall in love, deeply and completely with life. And to fall in love again, and again, and again. Because it makes you vulnerable and open to the unknown. It takes releasing the fears of being rejected, abandoned, betrayed, and experiencing pain and suffering. But this is the only way, to free yourself, to feel your real feelings, and to know yourself as a soul, in human body, having a human experience.
Love is trial by fire. Some resist this change, because the fear of the loss of identity is a giant terror that can be shocking to those who have not committed to the truth. But one can only put off this cosmic initiation for so long. Eventually everyone burns, gracefully or not so gracefully.
The cosmic initiation of Love reduces your identity to your bare essence. It burns up all the illusions, the ego, the false self. If you really truly completely fall in love, you will burn up in the love, and emerge as a phoenix, anew, much more spiritually mature, able to withstand life’s challenges, while not losing heart. You will no longer be pulled and pushed by the constant demands of the world. You will have integrity. You will be clear, about who you are and your place in the world.
When love comes, you will need to make space and time for it in your life. This will be a new experience. It may not seem to be convenient, it may make no sense to your mind, why it showed up in that form, it may not be attaining you anything in the practical concrete world, it may be against societal conventions, it may lead to extreme suffering, and loss of things you previously were attached to.
There are two types of suffering. There is the unconscious (neurotic) suffering, which is experienced by those who are addicted to the matrix, and are in denial of who they really are. This is a repression of real suffering, and can lead to psychosomatic illness. And there is the authentic purifying suffering, which is a result of having the courage and acceptance to feel all your feelings, to go through the human experience with an open heart and open mind and consciously experiencing all of your experiences. The former type of suffering leads to further entrapment in the matrix and insanity. The latter leads to wisdom and clarity. Always choose the latter, by being open to experiencing love, in whatever form it shows up.
If you refuse to be loving, compassionate, empathetic, more and more each day; reject love when it comes to you; ignore your feelings; and continue to invest in the ‘house of horrors,’ which is what people’s minds have become, eventually you will have a break down or a break through, as the real you will not be able to take the suffering any more, and will seek to get your attention by sabotaging your life. You can avoid going through that type of crisis, by choosing to be loving, despite the suffering it brings. This suffering brings liberation, it does not actually harm or injure you.
The word courage comes from the French word ‘coeur’, which means heart.
Courage is the quality of a heart that is aflame with love and compassion for others.
To the insane people addicted to the matrix, the reality of love is insane. Its anathema to the poison they imbibe daily with their violent main stream media, fake news, lies, violent video games, brutal sports, ridiculously dumb education, senseless wars, superficial relationships, corporation driven lifestyles. They see love as madness, weakness, a fantasy, a burden, or simply impractical and even stupid. To those who are deluded by the lies of this world, love is a lie.
And yet Love is the only thing that’s real and true. To love another truly, it is the ultimate red pill, that wakes all of us sooner or later, out of the drunken stupor of maya. it is the only antidote to the ignorance of the delusion of the lower realms. But the antidote only works, if you have opened the door to love without end. If you are not open to it, you will not receive the benefits, even if love is at your door.
Once you allow love to permanently reside in your heart, nurture it, consciously grow it, don’t repress it, and let it guide you. True Love is a rare gift, and a wise teacher, who comes to those who are ready, to be transformed by it. The mind will always find fault with the form that love takes in the physical world. But its not love’s fault. The world is a messed up place. And love chooses the best, most optimal expression for itself in each given moment, despite the messed up circumstances. We don’t always know why it takes on one form and not another. Learn to recognize your true you, amidst the myriad of thoughts, and trust your true self and your heart. Love will lead you straight to freedom. The path is straight and narrow.
Which is the opposite of how many people in the world operate. Their lives are mazes of walls, that keep them from seeing the truth of who they are, and from experiencing reality as it really is, where love is non existent, and people are lost and confused, and drowning in the ocean of suffering, fear and karma, as well as entertained to death, further to keep them from having genuine experiences with each other.
Call on and work with Archangel Michael to get crystal clear clarity about who you are, what you desire, why you are here, and what you want to achieve. You don’t have to know how your dreams will manifest. The universe handles the how. You just must focus on your goals, intentions, and desires with unwavering faith.
