Cravings ~ Part 2

Image

Does this Sound Familiar?

After several rounds of eating your favorite dessert question, “What is causing this to happen’ & “Why do I want this right now?” Pondering these questions en route to the fridge, pantry, special drawer, or better, as you’re entertaining it – will surprise you to learn your answers to these questions.

The key to releasing cravings is to recognize them as they arise. Attention placed on the current emotional state automatically sets up an interruption of the pattern. The interruption is “noticing” the craving. Craving a particular food is an indication that your body already has too much of it. It indicates imbalance in the body, which can lead to food allergy. Sugar, caffeine, carbohydrates, meat, and dairy all affect mood and only lead to health problems in the end so, try not to indulge in negative cravings, as they will always spiral out of control.

Cravings come from the unconscious. They’re patterns that we’re used to and do not think much about because they provide comfort. We all have a need for immediate satisfaction, to seek after the pleasure principle, whose innate response urges us to insulate our true feelings with something – whether with food, drugs, alcohol, sex, shopping, gambling, gaming, or whatever. Whatever one’s delight, it is meant to dissipate physical tension, at least temporarily to soften the edges.

Cravings offer a positive side, too. It’s the way the body sends us messages to maintain balance, to refuel our energy or lift our moods. For instance, the body may require Vitamin C to help heal a cold. Desiring an orange or citrus would be a result of a good craving and positive habit to reach for an orange. Body wisdom is working by sending us messages to maintain balance. Yet, if we ignore these messages for any prolonged period to find equilibrium, the more we get out of control and suffer the negative repercussions of our faulty habits and unresolved emotional cravings.

Learning to listen to the needs of the body is essential, as are the responses we get from eating food that causes symptoms (gas, indigestion, acid reflux, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, skin problems, bad breath, headaches, achy joints, etc). So, whenever the body is craving something, pause for a moment and wonder, “What’s really going on here?” “Is this craving coming from my body or my emotions?”

When we find ourselves impulsively reaching for some food, take a moment to slow down, breathe, and reevaluate the situation and consider what your heart and Soul are really asking for. Remember that the pause alone sets up an interruption to the behavior to overcome the craving. The choice is yours. We may choose to honor our bodies needs with Love or to hop onto the vicious cycle of negative pattern repetition where dissatisfaction, self-loathing, and low esteem await claim.

The point of focus is to look for food imbalances, emotional deficits and behaviors in your life that are often the underlying cause of cravings. Many times what we think are emotional cravings are cravings caused by nutritional imbalances that affect emotion, and vice-versa.

Bifurcation: Inhibition & Exhibition

Bifurcation: Inhibition & Exhibition

By Alisa Battaglia, B.D, CHT, EFT, TH

 

It is vital to understand that dis-ease results from a misuse of force, the blocking of free flowing generative energy that feeds the creative life of the Soul. That dis-ease is a form of activity that registers through the mental animation of thought, which blends together with feeling that forms the emotional body, which in turn affects and shapes the physical body. Hence, a distorted matrix of energy holds dysfunction and dis-ease patterns in place that neither permits a free interplay of force nor a correct rhythm throughout the physical vehicle. Points of congestion whether from over-stimulation or inhibition in the emotional, mental and etheric bodies of which can be seen by the shape of the body and in neurotic, compulsive-obsessive and addictive behaviors that all contribute to the external origins of dis-ease.

It is interesting to find that only five percent of prevalent diseases are due to mental causes. Disease is not of mental origin as so few live in the world of thought and fewer in the world of reality. However, those of a highly developed mental nature and sensitivity manufacture physiological effects with a definite psychological basis. This is because ills psychological in character remain submerged in the realm of mind. These include nervous diseases, inhibitions, suppressions, submissions to desires and their reverse aspects. There is to note a distinction between neurotic and psychological troubles of which may be a result of personality integration or excessive soul stimulation rather than the result of wrong polarization.

Wrong polarization of energy would reveal distorted attitudes to life and relation to people of which is primarily the result of obliterating an original thought that is stepped down to the level of emotionalism. Thoughts are powerful currents of energy that can manifest as effects on the physical plane, but when thoughts remain untouched upon the mental plane and move into emotionalism, there is failure to carry thought through into creative action upon the physical plane. The inability to engage what we think, feel, say and do in a unified movement produces a bifurcation or cleavage in the personality that cuts off vital streams of energy that devitalizes the body-mind-spirit complex.

Ninety percent of dis-ease arises from the etheric and emotional-feeling body, the 2nd (naval) and 4th (heart) chakras. In the emotional body, uncontrolled, ill-regulated and emotional inhibitions are a potent factor in contributing and producing discomfort and disease in the human constitution and whose generalizations of symptoms follow: fevers, tumors, congested areas, general debility and auto-intoxication which lie behind so many symptoms.

The etheric body is the inner substantial form or energetic template that underlies and sustains the human being. It is the framework upon which the physical body is constructed and patterned and whose field must be repaired for healing to occur. The etheric field contains an intricate network of pathways that are the threads of life force that underlie every part of the body and along with the seven major centers or chakras, act as transmitters of a vast aggregate of forces and vital energies that regulate the organs, glands, nervous system and the brain. Any body of activity can be distinguished by the particular problems associated with the energy center. For example, prolonged irritation and intense worry, violent activity under stress of temper and any agitation that galvanizes the solar plexus center into a condition of intense disturbance affects the stomach, pancreas, gall bladder, and duct, which produce a myriad of chronic problems and so on. These symptoms are best worked through “The Feeling Heart of Awareness Process and subsequent Body Cartography” sessions that dissolves these patterns.

Energy Perspective of Disease

Energy Perspective of Disease
By Alisa Battaglia

 When our personality is not in alignment with or moves against our Higher Self or Soul, our existence essentially acts out against the interests of greater Unity. While we seem to persist in the illusion of being separate our Soul is actually linked to the Great Kosmic energy field. When we disengage from Sources’ Kosmic energy field there is a loss in the fill of life energy. Loss of vital energy causes disruptions that produce a myriad of conditions (congestion, friction, distortion and disharmony) first noticed in the subtle body, the non-material form of thoughts and intuition. Thoughts are impregnated with doubt and fear producing negative soul states and moods that eventually progresses to the material level manifesting in the form body precipitating dis-ease. If the distortion of energy remains charged, the tension produced in the subtle body creates a necessary conflict that is reflected in the physical body yielding its own specific malady. For instance, when there is chronic inflammation of a joint that creates the body’s imbalance, the conflict does not allow it to heal. Until the conflict is resolved the joint will always be inflamed which eventually moves into more serious forms of degeneration.

It is essential to realize that every ailment or dis-ease informs us of our resistances that produce our imbalances. Dis-ease provides a focal point for discovering all the negative energies we have cultivated and how they have become displaced within our lives. The repetition of our negative experiences is nature’s way of bringing us back into reflection of total balance. However, when we fail to see the nature of dis-ease it is not possible to get rid of the negative aspects that have created it. In our healing process towards wholeness our lessons are learned through the experience of our bodies. A dis-ease healed naturally leaves a person stronger. When we use the natural processes of healing we come to recognize and understand our fundamental weaknesses by replacing them with true strength.

 The highest forms of ancient healing made no attempt to cure dis-ease than to seek the cause of dis-ease. The intention was to sustain an individual through the use of mild foods, herbs and spiritual disciplines in a way of purification. Any attempt to offer a remedy that would stop the natural process from occurring was considered an interference with the integrity of the individual’s own self-generated healing process through the body-mind-spirit complex. In this manner allopathic medicine more often interferes with the natural processes of recovery by introducing inert complexes of chemical medication to a body that is restored and sustained by force or life energy. It is in this way that the body is chemically manipulated and the symptoms of illness suppressed or the diseased parts surgically removed. This ideology masks-not heals the fundamental physiological imbalance that treats the symptoms of diseased life energy rather than the inherent cause of it.

This material mechanistic viewpoint clings to the notion that the mind is a physical function of the human body and is separate from its parts. It assumes too often that long-term or lifestyle practices that are unable to be measured or duplicated in a short-term laboratory study hold little significance to an ailing body and bifurcated spirit. Under this paradigm, the most vital connections to the causation’s of dis-ease are dismissed. This makes the fragmented mind-body vehicle very difficult to achieve liberation. However, to correct imbalances at source four levels need to be addressed: body, breath, mind and spirit. To do this we start on the external level because this is what we see and move inward where all disorder originates on a cellular level. All five senses are used to harness the body’s intelligence. Mindfulness dissolves the perception of separateness as the healing intelligence of Universal Mind is engaged.

How about this perspective for a pattern of living? 

How about this perspective for a pattern of living? 

God, Source, Creator, Universal Mind, or whatever name you perceive your God…is within All because Spirit is the essential principle contained in all things imbued with love, intelligence, and Wisdom. From this stream of the One Life, the spiritual triad is formed, the Father-God, Son/Sun-Soul and the Holy Ghost-Spirit.  Here the human being has a method for transformation that requires an awareness of free will and an engagement of the mind. Christ is humanities living example of transformation, transfiguration, and transmutation. Within each of us is the seed, the Universal Christ Pattern, or potential for Christ Consciousness, which is an activated heart centered reality of increasing levels of integration from the “I” perspective (transformation) to engagement with the “We” (transfiguration) to still more inclusive values of “Us” (transmutation). One Love!!!

This blueprint awakens unity consciousness, which is to align the Soul under free will with the higher Will of Source for humanities ascent to the power of good over evil in the material world. Remember that God is the One Life and that all of life is an expression of the ONE GOD, including the shadows of humanity that is labeled sin or evil.

What is called sin or evil, is a divergence from the stream of unity consciousness… movement askew of our potential from the pattern that has been set before us. The forces of rebellion in the unseen forces (astral realm) have been called Satan, the devil, evil, sin, the serpent, Lucifer, The Demiurge, Archon, intrapsychic predators, vampires, ET’s, etc…yet, they are all one in rebellion with Spirit when they move against the Life Urge of Christic initiation with the Living Waters of Wisdom.

Any mind activity that rebels against the influences of good, compassion and care and aligns with influences that distract, distort, rebel, or misalign with the One Source through the pull of material influences, it bifurcates consciousness into parts missing the Living Spiritual markers producing self-amnesia in the striving of higher ideals and values. Spiritual ideals help us to change and grow because they give us something to envision, to strive for. It is what arises spontaneously from the Soul…intuition unfolding revealing and affirming what calls to us from our depths. Authentic transformation is always guided by Core values/ideals or revelation for it to occur, as it is a primary principle for integration. With integration, there is “distinction” between personality-ego and individuality-Soul. Meditation is a means to move inward. Dreams lend insight & guidance.

To sum it up…Evil is a rebellion, an unbalance, of extremes (fundamentalism is an extreme): It is a lack of awareness/ignorance; rebellion & willfulness; aggression & invasion. The so many patterns of the ego that continually miss the mark, divert or misalign with the undivided stream of the One Life.

You may ask yourself what interrupts or diverts you?  What interferes with the pursuit of your ideals?  Most likely, your authentic answers will knock you off your high horse revealing within yourself, the sin of judgment.  But, don’t worry, I am not judging you, because you too, are an expression of God head…perhaps having missed the mark in the extreme.

Soul Bonding

There is a worldwide heightening of spiritual awareness. As conduits of Source energy, we must seek to nurture the growing awareness of the Soul’s presence in the life of the self and to assist others towards this evolutionary impulse to higher self-mastery in connection with the whole of life. As each member of the human family is birthed into awareness and at-one-ment with their own Soul, at a greater level a unified link to the Soul of humanity occurs. Since consciousness must connect with the larger organism, of supernatural intelligence, this unified link or bonding with our “Great Sustainer” opens consciousness to symbiosis, to higher platforms of living awareness. Symbiosis is an ongoing integral process in our evolutionary pathway in the life and soul of the planet.

As we inhabit the regenerative soul of Nature and recall our link to Spirit, we consciously attune to the natural order of the universe and the more we heal the inner chasms that shroud our authentic self. Humanities loss of connection with Nature has stunted the development of consciousness.  Mending the gaps in phylogenetic memory enables us to evidence the virus that offers no life, no essential purpose other than to bring chaos through a loss of energy and vitality where the sense of self disintegrates.

Consciousness is a gift endowed by Nature and we are to align in that direction. However, when human consciousness is cocooned from the biosphere and intelligent living is disconnected from art, social interaction, cultural development, or spirituality and life is diverted into synthetic realities, the feeling function is cut off and our psyche is rerouted producing inflated ideas of our own importance. Pulled from authentic reality we suffer from arrested development, aberration and succumb to human evil and we are unable to fulfill our co-creative potential with Nature.

These intra-psychic implants of a delusional world reality that foster human evil with its machinations to control all life and ensure continued suffering and early demise, is the virus. When we go against Nature, we forget that we are also part of Nature. However, the human Soul is the consciousness or regenerative link to the essential substance of the Creative Life Source – the Spirit in Nature. Linked to Nature, She is our path to whole-self wellbeing – of truth, beauty, and harmony.

Nature is the Great Sustainer and since the human soul is bonded into the soul of the Earth through an umbilicus, we have the capacity to live sustainably and walk in beauty with supernatural intelligence. We do not need the limitations of a synthetic artificial intelligence. Human nature is the human part of Nature. Nature intelligence is the terrestrial path to our Healing, to our quantum leap of living in symbiosis with the rest of the biosphere, of living in harmony with other life forms. It is time to forge a new relationship with the biosphere, our support system. We need to connect with it, nourish it, Love, cherish and celebrate it!

“If you are all head, no heart; live an empty vapid existence; engage in superficial meanderings of the status quo; find yourself in repetition compulsion; and engage in virtual realities as solace for unrequited love or exchange for human, plant, and animal relation, your psyche is trapped in an abyss with no life support. Reconnect to your authentic origins in Nature.”

Sensitivity to Impression

Power and significance is achieved when humans work directly with Nature intelligence in conscious ways to establish balance. We can begin to do this by being attentive to the impressions registered in our surrounding environment. We may not realize that we are subject to such impressions, but we are on some level of consciousness. The ideal is to make such impressions conscious and to reorient the registration of these impacts from an emotional reactivity to the development of a mental responsiveness to spiritual impression – of Spirit grounded into Matter. Sensitivity to spiritual impression has to do with developing an awareness of relationships. It acknowledges through feeling that all things in life are interconnected, intermingling, ever exchanging energies, that nurtures from the point of connection or malnutures from the point of disconnection.

As we become more sensitive to relationships and contacts, something wonderful begins to happen to us. The cloud of inertia over the human brain begins to lift and an awareness of “something more” pervades our consciousness. We recognize that we are lacking in potency and direction with self, others, and estranged from Nature realities. With this dawning awareness of relationship, the crystallized barrier that has been erected over eons to protect the interests of the separated self begins to crack, increasing our capacity to respond to the need of our environment with a spontaneous outflow of a loving heart and an intelligent mind.

Developing sensitivity to spiritual impression is the challenge of the path of spiritual development because silence must be cultivated. Silence is the key to impression because it directs attention of the listener away from the demands of the ego complex or centralized self and inward to the voice of the Soul. There is tremendous power cultivated from an inward focus towards the Soul when there is an impersonal attitude, one of observer. It is from that inward point that we realize that ideas are energy currents available to all minds attuned to those currents. When like minds come together with purpose of human progress and intent for right human relationships ideas bearing solutions to the world’s problems are anchored.

We live in a world where the allures of consumerism are the strongest. We have also in a period of history where science is exploring the outer world governed by natural laws. With this in mind, we are beckoned to conscious participation with the whole of life, in absorption into the imparted truths, so that they become a part of our consciousness.

Everyday we wield energy through our thoughts, words and actions. Let us becomes modes of expression or relaying channels and not delaying points of self-interest in the divine flow.

One Love ~ Exiting the Patrix

In this time of momentous planetary shift, social turmoil & personal change, a large number of people are mobilizing to save the world in ways they deem right. There are many opinions as to who is right and who is wrong and how to go about it. The conflict of duality consciousness is nothing new and the controversy it brings is also nothing new because this cycle perpetuates. Discarding duality consciousness is necessary in order to embrace an aerial perspective. Anything less keeps us locked in conflict, the fear loop, and cast into the drama between light and dark whose reflection is controlled by bending the laws of nature to fit ideas of what the world should look like. Duality has created the nightmare of the modern world, a world at odds with Nature and itself.

We know the world is really energy that is controlled by consciousness that is in turn controlled by connection to the human heart. The conscious heart is the instrument and the only way out through the dualistic construct. By unplugging our consciousness from the collective mind loop that keeps us at war with ourselves and the world, our steely hearts open to feeling and awareness. Feeling and awareness are vibratory signatures that lend the capacity to embrace all sides of the planetary coin. For instance, if we go against something or take one side over the other, we feed and empower that other side. Simply unplug and step up! Perceiving from an aerial view, steps consciousness up and outside of the conflict pen so that all sides can be embraced.

When we embrace all sides of a conflict with love and compassion, and without judgment, which is really challenging amidst difficult experiences, the conflicted situation loses energy and begins to resolve itself because the flowing energy through our umbilicus is no longer siphoned into the duality consciousness feedback loop. The full flow of individuated consciousness can now return into circulation with All That Is.

Unplugging from the Patrix (patriarchal dominator matrix) and stepping up an octave is the only way we can actually change the world. With our presence amped up in vibration, we become a bright and powerful beacon. We stand for many, as the amplified heart presence of one person aligned in unity consciousness is more powerful than a thousand people in fear. When we stand in love and inner peace, we shine more brightly and amplify that vibration far and wide. This shifts the balance of our ailing world back to its harmonious roots in Nature. Nature is perfect when left alone and is, and has always been the corridor to the Divine. Unplug from the cycle of addictive consciousness, out of duality, by stepping up to renew the message of the heart as One Love. Love is the only reality that is!

Appearances of the Heart

Some people live closely guarded lives, fearful of encountering someone or something that might shatter their insecure spiritual foundation. This attitude, however, is not the fault of religion but of their own limited understanding. True Dharma leads in exactly the opposite direction. It enables one to integrate all the many diverse experiences of life into a meaningful and coherent whole, thereby banishing fear and insecurity completely. ~Lama Thubten Yeshe, “Wisdom Energy”

There are many who claim to be accelerated on the evolutionary path to enlightenment who parade around in a sheath of spiritual ego full of self-aggrandizement. Their attention is anchored with concern over how they appear to others and thus, they exaggerate their own importance, power, and reputation masking their inadequacies under the guise of love and compassion. With a need to secure false personal power in the eyes of others to appear expert on matters that elude them, their emotional bodies are easily thrown off balance and threatened when their thoughts and ideals are questioned and processes examined. Quick to mask their overcompensations from feelings of self-doubt, inadequacy, or victimhood, they react with quick emotional force. Taking things personally, with a swift wave of the hand they judge and dismiss differing perspectives and approaches of others on the path. Be weary of such manipulations. Discernment is needed here. The hallmark of a true initiate is non-attachment and clearly unconcerned with others emotional positions, as they are steadfast upon bridging inner and outer connections on many levels and to transmit that synthetic union to others through world service. Their lower bodies are aligned and integrated with a focus on living a more Soul infused reality as the expressive link in consciousness.

While the spiritual egoist espouses to tout the law of love, they miss the mark and project onto others a love-less vibrational state de-spiriting those in their chain of connection. These characters having reached a small measure of congruency between what they think, feel, say, and do, and their uncontrolled emotional bodies ever lead them astray. Emotional reactivity leads to imbalanced thought. Imbalanced thought creates a whole new set of frequency patterns.

While to err is to be human, it is most wise to take personal responsibility to grow and make better when it is due. Halting judgment and embracing another’s ways of being is a good place to start. With finger-pointing fear based approaches, many refuse to own their projections lost in their own demagoguery. The virtues of humility, trust and the integrity of simultaneous interplay between teacher/student as a co-creative experience, is lost to their desire for guru-hood. Overriding true wisdom and halting acceleration, is the ever-common failure of the Path Seeker to control the emotional body into a calm sea of glass.

I have extracted and revised a piece of my work, “The Seven Attributes of Heart” to express the many evolving layers of heart consciousness that differ only by degree of vibration that is discernable as our level of awareness rises.

A selfish heart functions from conditioned logical responses, while the emotions are a continuous shifting of moods and sentiments wrapped into the self. A desirous heart is concerned with sense gratification and is motivated by that which brings pleasure. An egoic heart, pride and vanity plays an important role so that others may fall in love with the mask perceived as Self. Misidentification further thickens the veil of glamour and illusion. A compassionate heart stimulates the innate potential for healing and through the path of selfless service, love flows gracefully and lovingly brings calm and influence upon others. A listening heart is a self-aware organized consciousness of integrated perceptions between inner and outer worlds, open to the channels of knowledge and illumination. A wise heart perceives a world of differing forces that must congeal into a unified whole if there is ever to be systemic harmony. Virtuous, without distortion of any kind, the tide of beingness is in rhythm with an undifferentiated Kosmic awareness. A spiritual heart recognizes the essential unity in all things and merges with supreme consciousness with reflection in the Kosmic self.

Like a huge mirror our ability to govern the law of our own being always operates in accordance with our actions. We must come to realize that we each are responsible for our own happiness and our own misery chained by the instinctive forces that enslave us. We must move beyond these forces into self-mastery by using the gifts with which we are endowed to promote our inner ideal. Each day we can overcome the effect of our selfish hearts and brackish deeds if we act wisely by evolving our hearts vibration to more inclusive values. This leads us to live a noble life with potential to change the world.
