The Hard Nuts

deus-dios-god

As we shift into a greater awareness of our energy and feelings, we can find all sorts of contractions and resistance. But over time, simple awareness allows us to experience, release, and resolve whatever we discover.   But usually there is some crusted areas like the heart chakra, covered for “protection” but thus constrained and made less conscious. There can also be some hard knots or nuts that are more so. Often quite old, these are very tight contractions. They can be so tight they become inflamed, much as a star can light up from intense gravitational forces. This inflammation … Continue Reading…

Feelings vs Emotions

princess pout

On this blog, I use Emotions and Feelings to mean different things, although English is a little limiting. For example, we “feel emotions,” we don’t emote them (although some sure do (laughs)). I use this classification because of how I subjectively experience them. Your experience may vary.   The first thing to understand about emotions is they’re not concepts. Trying to figure them out with the mind is an exercise in futility. This also means we’re not actually feeling, we’re thinking. We may have learned to avoid emotions by staying in the head. And that means we’re repressing how we … Continue Reading…

The Unbalanced Masculine

I often write articles about personal inner work but current events are bringing large shadows to the surface. It’s important to talk about so we have a reasonable perspective on the issues being highlighted.   For a long time, the masculine has been dominant in global cultures. This takes the form of a dominant 3rd chakra. This has led to an emphasis on power, the mind, and in the West, individuality – the personal self. Culturally, we’re like pre-teens focused on me. This is an evolutionary step up from survival and tribal cultures. But if it becomes entrenched, it becomes … Continue Reading…

The Healing Algorithm

I often get questions about energy healing as I regularly mention its importance. My process is largely self-learned and informal, adapting to what is arising. I’ve not developed a specific formula. Essentially, I notice a sensation or emotion arising in day-to-day life that has a flavour of resistance, allow it to be expressed and it resolves. With a little practice, this becomes mostly automatic. We shift from repressing to releasing. I don’t go looking for contraction, I just notice them when life events bring them up. If you have not yet woken, you may also notice a flavour of grasping … Continue Reading…

Deep Patterns

4tree

In the past, I’ve written about the crud we store in the mind, emotions, and physical body. I’ve spoken about the deeper bliss and intellect bodies as essentially clear. When we release the junk in the coarser bodies that reveals the more subtle ones. This is true but there are dynamics in these deeper bodies that can sustain issues that express in the coarser bodies. The bliss or causal “body” is about space and vibration. It is universal, shared by all. The intellect and fine feelings body is about structure and relationship. This is the field of sacred geometry. The … Continue Reading…

Healing by Attention

In a lot of energy healing practices, you learn to move energy to places you feel resistance or where there is a complaint. In a few more specialized techniques you learn to work more directly with the issue by developing subtle perception and techniques to work specifically with the problem. In a still smaller group, you learn to heal on the structural and causal levels where the dynamics and patterns themselves arise. These are what express into form and possibly imbalance and illness. No matter how directly you treat some issues, if the causal pattern or program isn’t changed, the issue … Continue Reading…

Entrenched Habits

Some habits can be very difficult to change. Even if we successfully get around them for a time, they can rear their head again. They can be like a petulant child who always wants its way. This is a flag of resistance and of karma. Because of its shadow nature, it is often hard for us to see, even if it’s obvious for others around us. We can call this a blind spot. This is especially true of fundamentals, like food, relationships, and money. This is because these habits can be started very early in life when our mental style … Continue Reading…

Emotional Healing

We digest everything we consume: food, drink, sensations, and experiences. Some of our thoughts and emotions are a symptom of this background processing, although more is done at night in dreams. However, it’s batch processing so we can only vaguely associate the activity with the prior experiences. You can see this clearly with dreaming. If we’re under stress, energy is diverted from digestion and the higher forebrain to ready the body for fight, flight, or freeze. We also fall into resistance, grasping at what we want to keep and resisting what we don’t want. This resistance further impedes digestion. Combine … Continue Reading…

Digesting Contraction

There’s a take on purification I realized I’d not covered. Unlike some psychological approaches, we don’t have to dig up every trauma and challenge we’ve ever faced to clear it’s impact. That would make it essentially endless. The vast majority of our contractions can be handled by samadhi. By stepping deep into pure being, we get a rest deeper than sleep and gradually ground ourselves in presence. With the increased rest and peace, our layers can shed baggage as a matter of course. We’ll also probably have more robust contractions that have been deeply reinforced or well-buried by self-protective mechanisms … Continue Reading…

Healing Trauma

In the west, we often spend our time in our heads or devoted to distractions like television or games. Some people and cultures are more OK with emotions but may get caught in the drama more instead. It’s not easy being human. All of us have experienced illness, death, violence, and abuse in one form or another. How we respond to such experiences makes a big difference in the consequences for us. But our response is natural and often automatic. It’s not something we control – however hard we might try. This is especially true when we’re young and the world … Continue Reading…

Mapping The Personality

Recently, I’ve been learning how the cosmic devata communicate to create the world and using that to rebalance an area of the cosmic body. We might call this a more directed way of healing although my skills with it are as yet modest. In the specific sub-chakra involved, as the discord was soothed, the devata were willing to step back into their positions and restore balance. Together, there was unison and harmony although some further soothing is yet to come. What became apparent was there was 50 of them in this sub-chakra. That seems to be a standard for chakras. … Continue Reading…

The Tales of Our Past

As I touched on in The Subconscious, the residues of our long past’s incomplete experiences leave latent impressions and desires. We experience subconscious impulses from our unknown past that over-ride our normal sense. While these are drivers seeking a way to find completion, they can show up as unhealthy or inappropriate actions that cause us trouble. Not knowing from where these arise and wanting the security of a sense of control, the ego makes a story about our behavior. “Oh, I’m just bad with money” or “I never did understand men.” When the observing witness comes on-line and we become … Continue Reading…
