Integrity ~ Operating in Truth

Integrity
Operating in Truth

By Alisa Battaglia

Integrity is a virtue that relates to the quality of a person’s character–of integrating various parts of the personality into a harmonious, intact whole. Integrity is primarily a matter of keeping the self intact and uncorrupted. About embracing a point of view that does not just take the moral high ground, but pursues a commitment to do what is best. This means that we bring various levels of volition and desire into harmony and fully identify with them at the highest level. To do so we are urged to be conceptually clear, logically consistent, apprised of relevant empirical evidence, and careful about acknowledging as well as weighing relevant moral considerations. In other words to operate from our truth, which means that self-knowledge is crucial as we must know what we value.

What is it to be a person of integrity?

Whenever we state our truth in word, action, thought or otherwise, we empower ourselves by aligning with our personal code of conduct–what we decide is right or wrong for us. We make our own decisions and operate with integrity in terms of commitments to specific kinds of ends, principles and ideals. This care of self allows us to hold steadfastly true to our commitments, rather than ordering and endorsing desires.

When we live with integrity we have no reason to lie. We always win when we reduce confusion about how we feel. Life is uncomplicated and less stressful. It is much easier to live life when we are open and truthful because there is nothing to hide.

A plethora of human characteristics such as capriciousness, wantonness, triviality, disintegration, weakness of will, self deception, self-ignorance, mendacity, hypocrisy, arrogance, dogmatism, fanaticism, monomania, preciousness, sanctimoniousness, rigidity, indifference and so on drive us to moral failure. All these traits can defeat integrity in so far as they undermine and suppress attempts to critically assess and balance desires, commitments, wishes, changing goals and other factors. A person of integrity will find a mean between the excesses of each one of these vices, or traits or practices that undermines integrity.

There are also many defeaters of integrity who try to waiver us from operating in our truth. For instance so-called experts seek to further their own agendas by persuading and manipulating with half truths to get us to do what they want. The same idea applies to our family, spouse and friends. Oftentimes, inexperience succumbs to those who appear more knowing and powerful than us. This causes us to live out of alignment with our truth. Whenever we abandon what we know to be true and act from the strongest current desire of the moment, with no deliberation or discrimination between more or less worthwhile desires, we clearly act without integrity. Each time we go against our inner knowing we lose a little more of ourselves. Nothing pulls us further out of alignment and makes us more miserable than “selling out” and failing to stick to our integrity.

When we operate with personal integrity we refuse to agree with what is wrong, because we KNOW that something does not add up. We agree or disagree simply based on what we know to be true, not on what others want us to believe. We know the truth when we see it. Truth is our barometer, the measure stick of all things.

Rejecting Feelings of Fear

Rejecting Feelings of Fear
By Alisa Battaglia

“Be attentive to your thoughts for your thoughts control your
emotions. Your emotions control your words. Your words control your actions and your actions determine your character and your character determines your Legacy. “

Do not shrug the fear that enters your body mind. Feel it, place it within its proper context & move on. This does not mean that you won’t feel fear again, but you must know how to appropriately metabolize it so that it passes through your body rather than stuck within your tissues and bones and imprinted into your neural network.  Stuck emotions cause inner paralysis and perceptual distortion.

Holding onto fear borne through perceptions of finite limitation, separation, and disorder, and cultural archetypes and relationship patterns (Victim-Victimizer Game) are themes that underlie familiar disharmonious patterns that form the basis for so much dysfunction. Dysfunction always creates mistrust and constant doubt that paves the way to feeling helpless and living a reactive life where you are not in control of your experiences.

Allowing your emotions to blow out is about “not managing” your emotions. This not being steady in the Self causes you to hold on and attach to that which feels safe. Such attachments may be your need to feel accepted – approved of by others, enamored to a certain external identity, elevated in spiritual ego or conditioned in unconscious reaction. Any focus on the approval of others, the dependency of the mask you wear is false and is what creates the distortions between the limitless Self and the egos attachments.

Make no mistake that abiding in a bubble that is terminally one sided, that is too far off in one direction, causes abreactions even when you are presented with love.  In that gift there will be resistance in the receiving, because no space or emptying has been made inside to receive it. Your refusal to feel and/or limit your capacity to properly deal with what flows through your feeling centers produces a recoiling effect where the energy becomes bound in the body rather than processed through it much like a sieve.

There are certain things you must keep in mind. One is that Fear, all emotions not aligned in love, is due to the unknown.  Without the capacity to feel the variations of fear you are unable to know your uncomfortable feelings in order to integrate them into your experience. When you make your emotions unwelcome, you reject them and the personality remains undeveloped and unbalanced and natural spiritual evolution is halted.

Getting in touch with the emotional body and purifying the strategic patterns of conditioning is fundamental to all else and yet, it is the meeting of your fears that is the most ignored. Due to unprocessed fear and denial to see and be with what is real, you develop inner strategies to dupe yourself into believing that everything is okay, while you tuck your head deep under the sand, blinded and in the dark. Unresponsive to the reality that to face your fear, to feel it and move  forward despite it, is the very action that will shift fear into courage and self empowerment.  This is the way to meet all forms of resistance in the world, both inner and outer.  Feel the fear & do it anyway. Let this be your guiding mantra.

Harnessing your fear towards right process will cultivate your inner faculties to make your feelings of fear your ally.  Fear will serve as your barometer as to what is real or imagined.  Once fear is placed within its proper context, you use your feeling faculty to discern the origins of the fear bracket and its level of authenticity within its context. Next, you allow in those feelings in with a dis-impassioned interest and let them out as you disassemble the distorted patterns of belief without getting caught in the mire of judgment. When you label your emotions as good or bad you shut down the “allowing process.” Judgment creates blockers by contracting your perception and thereby, blocking your ability to properly recognize familiar disharmonious patterns in the breadth of the feelings that make you “feel” so uncomfortable in the first pace. You are always to look for the patterns in things, which allows for a wider scope of seeing, whereas labels are always limited to their definition.

Remember that emotions have natural ebb and flow qualities and must be allowed to flow through the body.  This is what it means that, “You are not your emotions,” but you are responsible for managing them, which is to place them in right context for inspection and release, or retain them for integration into higher wisdom in order to expand your light quotient and increase your vibration to higher reaching responses.

Learning to manage your emotional kaleidoscope is to begin to understand the language of your complex feeling nature expressed through the wisdom of your body.  And fear is only a singular facet in the emotional mosaic, which need not define, just simply be acknowledged and taken higher where it can be dissolved and viewed with greater understanding and polarized into Love.

No matter the depth and expansion of your consciousness, there are always shadows with various hues that play hide and seek or reveal another facet to provide you with a new perceptual angle.  Allow radiant light to pour over all the gradients and dimensions of your feeling perception. This is what enables you to walk a truer path, beyond the web of judgment, comparison values and pursuit of self gratification that always produces inertia of spirit.

When you learn to be sensitive to the voice within and acknowledge its guidance you lead yourself onto the path of natural evolution.

Remember, you are how you vibrate! How close is your vibrational bar to love?

Living Water ~Primordial Information Substrate

Living Water
Primordial Information Substrate

By Alisa Battaglia

Thought Moves Gods Spirit Across the Waters

Universal Laws are written in a molecule of water – hydrogen.  E = H2O = e is the molecular structure of water, which contains the principle of structural perfection. The water molecule is the primordial information substrate of Nature responsible for supporting the diversity of life on planet Earth.

This means that information about life is encoded or imprinted in water.  For instance, energetic rain, fresh air, the sun, minerals and rocks (coral calcium), and Natures circuits (rhythms) whose energy and information all move in the molecular fabric to create memory in water. The energetic informational qualities of water may be of even greater importance to our health than we have ever imagined because it interconnects all parts and processes within us.  Imagine that when we drink this elixir of life we literally consume the structural properties of a substance that is alive and with memory. We drink in the awesome wisdom of the Kosmos that is assimilated into our cells and consciousness with far reaching effects. Important to keep in mind that since the gift of life is entrusted to the sole substance of water, the key to our life purpose and death also holds the key through water. Water needs our care and utmost protection!

Everything has a significant part of water as a part of creation. With Earth being 75% water, the human body composed of 85% water and the brain containing 90% water; it is easy to see that water is the conductive force of life. I add solar energy to this divine alchemy, the hertz frequency of the sun that structures water to perfection. (See solar meditation). In addition, the realities of water also resonate with the deeper emotional and mysterious feelings we often experience in the presence of bodies of water – a sort of cleansing effect in the ebb and flow via the myriad tides of expression in our subtle realms of the emotions. Leonardo Da Vinci states that, “human emotions are water.” Hence, the great dialogue between water and humanity. Water – Sound – Frequency.

Water transmits chemical and structural information and is, thus equivalent to a person talking with a person. It picks up the frequencies of everything it comes into contact with, around it and the pipes it goes through to reach the tap. Imagine the plethora of chemical wastes funneled into our water systems from toxic industrial waste, chemical and pesticide run-off, pharmaceuticals to fluoride and other additives to clean the water we drink and bathe in. Water is a conduit. It holds memory and acts as an information exchange with all that is around it including sound. Like water, sound can either be used to create, heal or destroy. When we destroy living water, we destroy ourselves.

Water and Sound
Water is an informational system and takes on different complex structures based on the vibrations (or intentions) being directed at it in both positive and negative exchange. Our speech, written words, deeds, thoughts, feelings, prayers, intentions, music, and crystals, and so on produces an energy signature that is imprinted into water. Understanding that sound creates structures in water greatly emphasizes the many roles of water in the health of the body and on consciousness. CREATORS’ holy water is hexagonal (clustered water) and stores the frequency of miracles. Ponder the significance of water in ritual and ceremony used for healing purification and physical body maladies.

We can empower ourselves by reprogramming the water we drink and use, to not only be chemically pure, but to create a new structural pattern of health, love, perfection and divine being. Consider, for example, the musical note E or its correlative on the third Solfeggio Tone of “Mi.” Mi resonates to the miracle “528” vibrational number sequence that repairs damaged DNA. Imbibe the 528 miracle healing frequency into consciousness and thus, into water.

Quality
Water must be more than chemically pure, it must be alive. There are many products in the marketplace that promise to enhance the structure of water, making it either “wetter water” or “hexagonal water” that works far more effectively in the human body than the typical stagnant, dead water coming out of the faucet. Water of poor quality is a major contributing factor to a poor state of health in both body and mind.

The quality of our water is a prime concern if we aim for the highest possible state of health at all the levels. Much emphasis within the natural health community has been placed upon the physical purity of water. While the various impurities may be removed through filtration, typically the “memory” or “vibration” of these pollutants remains. There are positive and negative memory effects on water, but only the “negative memory” stored in the water has a detrimental effect upon our health. Hence, we need to broaden our approach to water and we can do so by acquainting ourselves with the works of Viktor Schauberger,  Johann Grander and Masaru Emoto.

A Simpler Approach to Life Between Points of Tension

A Simpler Approach to Life Between Points of Tension

“To live with simplicity is to unburden our lives—to live more lightly, cleanly, aerodynamically.” ~Duane Elgin

At a time when we have heard the spectrum of excuses for the failing order and experience its unworthy actions that ask for our trust just long enough until the next dupe are the shifting of the pieces on the chessboard as a collective distraction. This peaceful warrior has recognized the timely fact that an inner re-evolution must meet the outer need.

Amidst the outer chaos and political theatre is a nebulous transition that is opportune in loosening the stranglehold on our body-mind. As these points of tensions meet, illusions are pierced and the desire for glamour loses its glitter. We see the magnetic lure as a weight on personal creativity and a downslide into mediocrity. We finally get that the deep focus on material things has been at the cost of spiritual values and we step back, shift our consciousness and redirect our growing pains from the global financial crisis towards the freedom of simplicity.

This simpler approach to life offers tremendous opportunity to serve the Souls plan as a great “army of implacable spiritual will,” in a time of momentous decision.

“Simplicity and union are related, for simplicity is one-pointedness of outlook and clarity of purpose, and these are descriptive of life lived at a point of spiritual tension. In such a state one becomes a participant in a process of distribution of spiritual energy from the highest realms of our planetary life to the outermost reaches of life on earth, and this is the opportunity [before us].” ~Lucis Trust

This period in our evolutionary history is called the “Aquarian Age” focused in goodwill—the sharing of resources with the collective consciousness, while holding steadfast our individuation. As a responsive cooperative channel—the collective heart of humanity makes every effort to release the water of life poured forth for a thirsty world. This sharing of higher values and clear spiritual focus in all human relations is the gift of the Aquarian Age, as it contains the seeds of solution to the world’s crisis on all levels of living, both personal and in all relations, human and otherwise.

Let us as a cohesive, united force of Light begin to understand the significance of “Global Communion” aka group service in these early stages of human consciousness development and set an example the characteristic of sharing—the will-to good. Sharing in authenticity opens the heart and lets in the flow of Love to absorb, circulate and distribute into the veins of culture throughout the world. Alice Bailey wrote that, “this sharing, beginning on the physical plane, will prove equally true of all human relations and this will be the great gift of the Aquarian Age to humanity.”

We are wise to broaden our consciousness to the fact!

INTEGRATION of the MASCULINE and FEMININE PRINCIPLE

INTEGRATION of the MASCULINE and FEMININE PRINCIPLE

By Alisa Battaglia, BD, EFT, CHT, TH

The expressions of masculine and feminine energies are the focal point when we lose ourselves or encounter troubled parts of our being. When the Anima and Animus or soul is disconnected, there is self-devaluation and subjection to all sorts of self-limiting beliefs and painful emotions. Unfortunately, the systemic root within modern culture is to look outside of self for answers to inner dilemmas. This attitude is most prominent in the realm of relationships where vital energy for achieving inner congruency expends itself outwardly in search for the perfect companion. Although, relationships are one of the most fulfilling aspects of life because they mirror what is necessary to learn about ourselves through another, they also promote co-dependence when we look to them for our wholeness. Using a relationship as a crutch or distraction from self always stifles growth. Instead, we might guide one other to connect with the authentic self, the wise inner being that nourishes and frees us from attachments.

Regardless of gender or sexual orientation, there is both a feminine and a masculine part of our nature. True femininity, is connected to the masculine and true masculinity is connected to the feminine. Bridging and maintaining balance between these two compelling forces of energy is a power sharing arrangement. The archetypal forces of the assertive masculine qualities and the receptive feminine qualities are both fundamental parts of our bio-psycho-spiritual development.

Too often, there is restraint from fully animating the masculine side of nature because there is belief that it will harm or violate others, especially if experience has proven it so. In reality, power is neutral and depending on intent, power either harms or helps. In addition, the feminine counterpart erroneously equates with weakness and accommodation. However, we are power, effective and free when we animate both our masculine and feminine energies from a place of love and openness as opposed to fear and defensiveness. The result of inner fusion produces a shift in consciousness as a state of sovereignty within us. Sovereignty allows the soul that is whom we are to achieve with ease its true purpose, which frees us of co-dependency so we may relate to others in an authentic way that is not sabotaged by neediness of the bifurcated personality.

The feminine and masculine archetype represents through the right and left halves of the brain and the corresponding sides of the body. It is always interesting to note the side of the body where personal will, injury and pain originate. Are they fairly limited to one side of the body or are they evenly dispersed in different areas? Observing the pattern and where tensions or dis-eases, our strengths or weaknesses in body and character are held, is just as important as to which side of the body the imbalance dominates. Essentially, the left side of the body is the receptive side of the body with a negative ion (-) and therefore, feminine, which relates to emotions and intuition. The feminine principle provides the nurturing, inner awareness and vision to guide us through life. The right side of the body with a positive ion (+) is action oriented and therefore, masculine, which relates to logic and focused mental pursuits. The masculine principle provides the action and the will needed to meet our destination. If the introspective feminine is underactive and the active masculine is overactive, a clear and soulful sense of life direction is absent. Conversely, if an appropriate direction is envisioned of where we want to go in the feminine, but the masculine is underactive, there lacks will, making it difficult to ignite into action and accomplish goals.

Overactive masculine energy is characterized by tough love, hyper mental focus and achievement oriented. In such an overactive state, alot of mental energy is expended -circuitously locked in a pattern of unfulfillment even after months or years of effort  only to feel burdened with a backlog of unfinished projects and unfulfilled desires. This often relates to people married to their job or see value in life only in terms of materialism. In turn, underactive feminine energy often becomes an “inability to do” that relies on relationships as a substitute for self-development. Internally, masculine and feminine energies need to be working in tandem to protect mutual sovereignty. This means that when the relationship between the masculine and feminine self is non-communicative, inner energies are not working together in harmony and therefore, vulnerable to internal and external invasion. While the feminine is most vulnerable to the controlling masculine and saviorship patterns, the masculine is equally responsible for the pattern of invasion of its feminine counterpart and others. If the male cannot trust and surrender to his inner feminine he will find it difficult to trust and surrender in his relationships or will use his fear and mistrust to seek power over others. If the female cannot trust and use her masculine edge or inner phallic to defend herself or her family unit and support herself wisely, she will use this energy negatively to her detriment. She will either mistrust or hurt others with it unable to trust or surrender in her relationships or she will give her energy away on a silver platter and render herself victim to masculine power. She is unable to stand in her presence and fortify boundaries to feel safe, which is masculine energy. The healing process begins when a relational dialogue develops between the masculine and feminine energies, one at a time. This means getting to know the energetic expressions of each domain and how they play out in our lives.

Wise to grasp that men and women are equal in value, but different in function. Understood this way both gender principles can be developed equally, rather than take a lopsided approach. For example, a common experience occurs when the feminine vision is clear, but the masculine heads off in another direction for lack of inner dialogue that prevents understanding and/or achievement of true purpose. In such a state of imbalance, the inner feminine expression is thwarted and fear takes over trust, intuitive guidance or wisdom. However, when knowingness and common sense of the masculine is confirmed by the feminine intuition, balance is found. We need to be both strong and sensitive, to dance without being polarized.

Awareness produces an ever-increasing dictum of how life exists in polarity or dual nature. When the masculine and feminine self becomes an integrated composite of highly creative energies or sovereign, spiritual forces flow throughout the body and we experience our lives more fully, inner directed and move forward on our path. When these energies are out of balance, progress is generally difficult, if not impossible.

Cultivating spiritual ethics, a set of values mediated not by thinking, but by feeling truth is a path of action that takes us from awareness to presence and in touch with lovingness, compassion and kindness that does not harm, but protects life.

Living at Ease

By Alisa Battaglia

Awakening to our essence, to know ourselves, is the nature of Spirit. Spirit is whole and undivided. Unless we live a full sense of who we are, we do not really live. Anything less is banal, habituated and automated. With that there is a loss of free will and disconnection with the creative mind. The mind fragments and diverges from the stream of the One Life. 

We may inhabit a form body, call it life, but we are forever subject to our ignorance, fear and helplessness in the material world.

Fall back inside self. Pause. Engage the mind and free will. With meditation and self-analysis we carefully select the values, priorities and motives (physical, mental & spiritual) according to how we wish to chart our life path.  These core values are the primary motivators in our lives. When we act on our own values we apply what we believe… we live by example with patience and acceptance of responsibility for one another promoting Love and Goodwill.

As we live a full sense of ourselves, our Soul houses the understanding of our experiences. We let life inside our hearts to play its individual song, to sing and dance inside us.

Spirit moves within us, always changing yet, remains unchanged. It is the cycle of being from which our essence glows – the nature of Spirit inside us transforming us into ease on every level-materially, emotionally & spiritually. Within this timeless dimension of existential law is how to know ourselves…to be ourselves. It is the undivided nature of Spirit. Be there!

CARE OF MIND ~ Reshape Your Consciousness To Reshape Your Life

By Alisa Battaglia

Imagine the original Self as a creator that sends consciousness in many directions at once to experience all possibilities. This multidimensional aspect or enlightened Self that is us makes use of this power for healing, personal growth, and to expand our connection into the stream of communion consciousness—The Divine Oneness of ALL THAT IS.

Our individual consciousness is multidimensional and is thus, able to engage the essential energy of all creation for wealth of personal power to manifest the life that we desire; to be more responsible for our own health; and to better govern the law of our own being through accelerated consciousness. We have myriad opportunity to recognize that the journey lies within us and is not an external destination. When we grasp this truism, fine-tuning our focus and discipline into the here and now– assures the necessary changes within to transform smallness of mind into the largess of being that we are.

Understanding the direct relation that our addictive negative thoughts and fears have on our soul’s progression can help us remove obstructions that limit our soul’s conscious evolution. For instance, negativity, whether in thought or visualization is a psychic pollutant that produces trauma in our bodies by taking physical form, as it records all experiences in both our cellular and etheric body structure. When blockages exist, they lower the frequency of our soul and block encoded symbols of Light that carries the celestial plan for our current incarnation and humanities evolution. When our bodies are clear of inner obstructions, the higher knowledge of our mission or blueprint is transmitted telepathically, via dreams and modes of inspiration through the ray of love, wisdom and universal law that works with the divine mind of the higher self.

To understand how we might live our divine blueprint we need to know that our thought-forms resonate at a particular frequency in the bandwidth of our auric fields that opens up holographic connections of an intended experience. Positive thoughts help us move forward on our journey to spiritual development, while negative thoughts inhibit our progress or move us into regression. Our choosing thoughts with optimistic overtones assist us in residing on a higher frequency enabling measured progress. For example, when we express ourselves in positive ways we take on equal amount of positive vibrations. When we express negativity, we equally take on that amount of expressed negativity. Pessimistic thoughts of anticipated doom and gloom help to create our negative experiences. Negative thoughts such as envy, criticism, hatred and jealousy emanates a vibration into the collective mind-sphere arousing the same thought forms creating affect.

Depending on the projected thought forms, they either raise or lower the Earth’s vibration and the collective consciousness. Choosing with integrity the experiences we wish to create via our thought-forms, helps us gain mastery over them by learning which ones attract and lead to joy and those that attract pain and difficult experiences to us. Abiding by Universal Law and Principle helps us to eliminate the pains of living by trial and error.

Releasing the collection of negativity from painful, fearful and frustrating experiences lodged within the varying fields of consciousness (auric layers of the bio-field) helps us to unlock the memory of negative energy imprints. These are the current negative experiences in our cellular biology carried from the womb and collective planetary experiences; genetic memory stored in our DNA passed down from seven generations of our ancestors; and emotional imprints stored within the living library from all our incarnations.  All forms of negativity lower our energy into a state of disharmony or dis-ease. When we address the causes and clear them, we allow our souls to accelerate in consciousness expanding our vector of perception. This provides increasing receptivity and a smoother transition through the various fields of expansion.

As we make contact with the parts of us that are disassociated and awaiting integration, we create an internal connection that was not initially available to us. This connection brings awareness to areas of inner resistance, our pain, where we do not love and honor ourselves. It also brings to fore our stuff to be transmuted and better integrated into our personality. As we release thought forms of old paradigms and those not ours to be cast off, we draw to us new experiences of a lighter energy content which increases the frequency of our energy body’s vibration.

Integration enables us to receive direct communication and guidance from our Soul to create and experience outside of delusion and self-imposed limitation. The goal of emotional purification is to transmute each layer of thought distortion or disunity thought-forms and their associated layers of density into those based in love, unity and honor of self. Discipline in dissolving our inner resistances and dichotomies, value judgments and fear based ideologies with right behavior and focus in the here and now, assures us the opportunity to move beyond the strictures of divisive thinking and gain access to soul memory of Oneness.

Ponder on this: You are what you think about all day long. One insight can change your reality and change the way you think!

Engaging the Five Senses

The intelligent coordination of life consists of four parts: the soul, the mind and the senses of the physical body. Each of these has a specific function that contributes to the wholeness we experience as life and focus to maintain these specific functions leads to a balanced integrated relationship. When imbalance in the physical, emotional or mental arises the inner subjective life that cannot be apprehended by the five senses and the outer physical objective areas of life of the five senses are bifurcated producing duality consciousness. Disconnecting ego (outer life) from the soul (inner life) from the stream of universal consciousness is the contributor of conflict producing human resistance, struggle, disease and pain.

The senses are a fundamental property that arises out of the five elements because they act as a bridge between the non-physical world of soul and mind to the physical body and environment. Without the five senses our internal reality would be completely devoid from an external reality, as the senses gather information from the outer world and perceptions are relayed to the mind in the form of sound; touch and temperature; light; color and form; taste and flavor; and smell.

Our state of consciousness is a vital factor in how we apply or misapply our sense energies. It shapes our reality, as it is the perception we carry of life that shows us where we are in resistance or bondage. If our perception is impaired or diminished, it eventually produces wrong or negative physical and external conditions because our inner source is dis-eased. We do not see things clearly as our emotional biases impair our functions and therefore misapply or misdirect our senses.

The hostility, bitterness, disappointments, deprivation, deficiencies, and antagonisms of our sufferings that comprise our inner state from sensory misapplication turns outward into manifestation, onto the body and onto others. They become our patterns through repetition and reinforcement. Faulty patterns that run deeply within us negate who we are by the inhibition of natural processes and flexibility of movement that results in an imbalance of all the interrelated physiological systems and subtle energies of the chakra system.

When we misuse our senses (touch, sight, taste, hearing and smell) with their objects we have the potential to suffer and create disease. For instance, excessive sensory stimuli borne out of living in the syncopated rhythms of modernity overload the senses from loud music; noisy environments such as living near an airports or train station and traffic; watching too much T.V. or working too long on the computer and reading too much; and talking excessively on the phone. These are considered over-stimulated states of the senses affecting the chakras.

Another example of how we misuse our senses is insufficient sensory input or psychical starvation, a form of deprivation that leads to deficiency and apathetic states where it becomes difficult to react to a situation. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a clear physiological example that occurs during winter months affecting mood changes from little sunlight that feeds the pineal gland whose lack causes depression and disease. Isolation or solitary confinement in prison and war camps also creates agitation and mental imbalance from the inhibition of sensory stimulation from the outside world.

The third way that we misuse our senses is by sensory intake of something traumatic that is morally and emotionally repugnant such as witnessing violence, whether in real life situations, bad relationships or on TV, watching shows that continually feature cruelty, emotional and physical violence. The sensory impression of seeing and hearing distress has a strong impact on the nervous system that disrupts the balance between the mind and body.

Misuse of the senses in general has an adverse effect that weakens and damages the coordination between the mind and body, harming the mind and damaging the body. To engage and strengthen the five senses we use them together as often as we can.

Masculine & Feminine Principles

Conversely, if we envision an appropriate direction of where we want to go in the feminine, but the masculine is underactive, there is no will and we thus find it difficult to ignite ourselves into action and accomplish our goals.

Overactive masculine energy is characterized by tough love, being very mental and achievement oriented. In this overactive state, we expend a lot of energy in a circuitous mental pattern that keeps us unfulfilled after months or years of effort only to feel burdened with a backlog of unfinished projects and unfulfilled desires. This often relates to people married to their job or see value in life only in terms of materialism. In turn, underactive feminine energy often becomes an “inability to do” that relies on relationships as a substitute for self-development. Internally, masculine and feminine energies need to be working in tandem to protect mutual sovereignty. This means that when the relationship between the masculine and feminine self is non-communicative our energies are not working together in harmony and we are vulnerable to internal and external invasion. While the feminine is most vulnerable to the controlling masculine and saviorship patterns, the masculine is equally responsible for the pattern of invasion of its feminine counterpart and others. If the male cannot trust and surrender to his inner feminine he will find it difficult to trust and surrender in his relationships or use his fear and mistrust to seek power over others. If the female cannot trust and use her masculine edge or inner phallic to defend both she and her children and support herself wisely, she will use this energy negatively to her detriment. She will either mistrust or hurt others with it unable to trust or surrender in her relationships or she will give her energy away on a silver platter and render herself victim to masculine power. She is unable to stand in her presence and fortify boundaries to feel safe, which is masculine energy.

The healing process begins when we develop a relational dialogue between the masculine and feminine energies, one at a time. This means we must get to know these energetic expressions that exist within and how they play out in our lives. To grasp that men and women are equal in value, but different in function. This way we can develop both sides equally, rather than only one side. For example, the feminine vision may be clear, but the masculine heads off in another direction for lack of inner dialogue that prevents us from understanding and/or achieving our true purpose. In such states of imbalance, the expression of the inner feminine is thwarted and we fear rather than trust our wisdom and intuitive guidance. When knowingness and common sense of the masculine is confirmed by the feminine intuition, balance is found. We need to be both strong and sensitive, to dance without being polarized.

Awareness produces an ever-increasing dictum of how life exists in polarity or dual nature. When the masculine and feminine self becomes an integrated composite of highly creative energies or sovereign, spiritual forces flow throughout the body and we experience our lives more fully and move forward on our path. When these energies are out of balance, progress is generally difficult, if not impossible.

Cultivating spiritual ethics, a set of values mediated not by thinking, but by feeling truth is a path of action that takes us from awareness to presence to bring us in touch to  become loving, that does not harm but protects.

The Law of Spiritual Approach ~ Stairway to the Soul & Inner Revelation

….”Spiritual” refers not only to experiences traditionally considered religious, but to all states of awareness, all the human functions and activities which have as the common denominator the possession of values higher than average—values such as the ethical, the aesthetic, the heroic, the humanitarian, and the altruistic. ~ Robert Assagioli, Synthesis—The Realization of the Self


The Law of Spiritual Approach governs the basic impulse to push forward to create and live in a more harmonious and spiritually anchored world. In the collective urge for self-betterment those who stand in their own truth have set aside personal agendas and place the “highest and best good for the human race as a whole” in the forefront of any other focus. This means that separatist dogmas of exclusivity are replaced with spiritual insights into the underlying Laws and Principles of inclusive awareness. Inclusive awareness begins with an understanding of those Laws if we are to be successful in our intentional creations. Many are just learning to apply these laws in their daily lives, while many of us are actively utilizing the laws to cause the flow of experience to change world direction into higher vibration.

Never before has there been greater spiritual expression insofar as the pursuit of our spiritual aspirations and never so many technologies, methodologies and practices to help us awaken our intuitive faculties. Inasmuch, there are also forces that suppress our aspirations and free technologies available that could liberate us from dependence on so many levels. Such forces purposely overlay the true situation with false and distorted representations to confuse and promote fear. The ignorant, confused and frightened masses are easy to control. In fact, the sycophant banks on the masses never waking up as they provide every distraction to keep focus on the outer life and attention away from cultivating the beauty of ones inner jewel.

We can break through the ceiling and climb out of the box of limitation and discover that the true “purpose of conscious awareness is expansion of wisdom through experiencing knowledge to that higher level. The creation of conscious awareness is only possible through the expansive process of creative thought focused to magnify the originating energy source.”[1] The struggle and perseverance of World Teachers have left behind a scaffold to help us climb out of the box and expand beyond the confines of our conditioning.

For those who are awake and those awakening from transgenerational conditioning that is not based upon authentic reality, but a preconstructed reality (PATRIX) that has been imposed for thousands of years, we wonder how we can break from its spell to create a new world paradigm? For any system of control to become successful there needs to be consensus, which means that humanity has agreed to accept our current reality, good, bad or indifferent. The plan is self-perpetuated by humanity itself. Thankfully, self–aware consciousness is not powerless. Realities can change when there is understanding of how Universal Law operates. However, such a directional change towards higher values inevitably entails a period of chaos within the established current. This is the real challenge inasmuch that it is innate to walk the path of least resistance—to accept the status quo even when the status quo does not serve freedom. Yet, in order to change the momentum there must be a 180-degree focal shift in order to divert the current direction of usurpation—that is the completion of the plan for enslavement. Wherever we are at within the evolutionary impulse of life, it moves forward waiting for no one or thing. So, we either wake up or we ALL suffer the consequences of our self-denial.

With so many stages of consciousness, how can we come into agreement as how to change the current world direction?  There needs to be no formal agreement. All that is necessary is a desire to change/end the existing paradigm. If in fact we ALL came into united agreement (focus) the collective vibration would be high enough to disintegrate the current experience. We have work to do.

There are four vital principles to guide our way:

  1. The Law of Magnetic Appeal: Like magnetizes like.
  2. The Law of Deliberate Intent: What is intended and held resolutely within thought, word & deed manifests.
  3. The Law of Allowance: Allowing what is intended to manifest while using the observer mode to be awake and aware while continuing to hold the focus without being rigid as to the outcome. (Allowing thought to think).
  4. The Law of Balance: Allowing the first three laws and focusing within the present moment.

The Laws are immutable and follow the path of least resistance. Abide in its rhythm for harmony and accordance with the greater spiritual realties of our planetary inheritance.
