In many ways, life and energy can be similar. Until we experience something nearing a full-on block (clog) in our energy, it can be difficult to find the root of the block and clear it all out. If we’re not tuned in at all to our energy and Spirit, we might not notice at all that anything’s amiss. And even if we are tuned into our energy and Spirit, and attempt some inner work and healing, until the block is more fully developed, we might not see the core of the issues. We might understand part of it and clear part of it, but it’ll keep causing bigger and bigger roadblocks in our life until we can see more clearly where the core is out of alignment with our True Self.
Our country has been going more and more out of alignment with its collective True Self for awhile now. Money above all else has corrupted some of our country’s energies and caused our collective actions to be unbalanced in the world. We do have a lot that is in alignment with our collective Soul. We have a lot of health. However, the blocks and clogs in our country’s energy have now reached a critical mass and have revealed themselves by electing a person who from all appearances looks like he may have a personality disorder that is in alignment with tyranny, dictatorship, and other abuses of power.
Having dealt with someone similar in a big way in my life, I can say that although the destruction and pain that someone like him can produce in big ways, that full-on block in my career at the time was the catalyst for clearing me out all the way to the core of my Soul. It drove me to find healing at a deeper level beyond anything I could imagine and led to my awakening to my True Self. I am so, so grateful.
The same can be true for you and for our country…IF we use this as teacher. Everything and everyone is teacher if we choose to learn from what is unfolding in front of us. Even the worst can turn into the best. Here is an excerpt from My Karma Ran Over My Dogma of all that I learned from my dealing with an abusive tyrant. From the chapter, "Find the Blessing in Every Curse":
"Upon reflection and over time, I realized that--
—because of all the stress from my situation, I learned how to “ride the waves” of a storm and be peaceful when everything was falling down around me.
—the physical damage to my nerves and internal organs put me on the path of alternative medicine and energy healing, and eventually led me to becoming a healer myself.
—because of the financial destruction, I learned complete dependence on God’s care for me and my family.
—through being unjustly fired, formally blacklisted and essentially forced out of the Presbyterian denomination, I discovered a hospitable new spiritual community.
—because of discrimination against women in the church, I founded a women’s church called Women’s Sanctuary, which provided a welcoming community and spiritual safe haven for other women, many who needed respite from abuses of all kinds in the church.
—by being smeared and lied about by other ministers to an extent that still boggles my mind, I learned who I really was. I learned my true core was indestructible."
Awakening to your True Self is the most core healing you can experience. It gets to the root of all clogs and your energy starts moving and flowing in ways you couldn’t have even imagined before the healing shift. You'll have eternally replenishing energy just like a slinky on a treadmill!
Keep asking and saying to yourself, “Who am I? Wake up! Who am I ? Wake up!”
May we use this New Year to awaken to our True Self and to our collective True Self. May it be a catalyst for a mass awakening, the likes of which the world has never seen. Blessings and Peace and Love to all.
