BLOG & MUSINGS
I notice a lot these days when it comes to listening to people speak, and I don’t mean picking apart their grammar. That’s mental. It goes far beyond the actual words they are saying. Sometimes they could be speaking and what they really mean to say is completely the opposite. This is an extreme example of this, but you see the point. I sense beyond the mind and emotions of a person. This is moving beyond the limitation of being an empath. I still feel for others, but I am not engaged in their emotions, because I can sense beyond that (there is a type of energy feeding that takes place between the empath and the perceived person or being that needs assistance). And this also applies if something may perhaps be directed towards me. Although this is not my arena to tango with, these things will still occur because of the nature of this reality. There are so many of us with our own perceived realities and we are living on the same planet. We share this space together and so there will always be people who play games. We can have observations, but not have an engagement to the judgments.
Another observance I have when people speak is where they are coming from inside of themselves at the moment. All of us are comprised of various aspects and they are playing on and off at all times until integrated. Once integrated they become wise facets of wisdom we can draw all of creation from. We also have the ability at this point to feel it when we say “I Am that I Am”. They are not just words, but something truly felt within. Once this occurs, then one’s reference point changes. It’s no longer split or fragmented. Let me give you an example from a recent session I had with one of my clients…
I had repeated back to them a sentence they had said because there was a noticeable difference in how they were referencing themselves from one pronoun to another within the same sentence:
“I know what I am, but I’m still not there.”
I had them write the sentence down to look a little closer at it, just like this:
“I (know) what I am, but I’m still not there.”
I then asked them to read the sentence back aloud and when they did they had a revelation. They noticed that the first part of the sentence was coming from their higher selves (higher mind), and then the second part was coming from their brain (lower mind). Then I asked them to now say the sentence with this acknowledgment. This is what they came up with:
“I know of what I am, I just know.”
Then, the brain asked: “how do you know?”
The brain didn’t mention a ‘we’ in that question. You see? The split changed, yes. But the point here is through mere acknowledgment of this it changes the energetic dynamics of your entire being. It’s in the acceptance is when the allowing occurs.
So then we say, “My brain is my best friend.” said the brain… hahahahahaha!
In all seriousness, the mind is simply there to keep us safe. That is its function. Other than that, it was not meant to be primary. And through conscious awareness of this, then one can gently tell the brain that there is no need to be in control anymore. Yes, it’s in the acknowledgment and recognition of how well of a job the brain does at keeping one safe. The ego loves this. This is how we be gentle with ourselves. There is no death to the ego and the mind is not going away. ‘We’ are a collective, including that which is human.
So now, we say “I am a divine human”.
It's all together now.
