OBSCURATION OF OUR EMOTIONAL ENERGY PATTERNS
By Alisa Battaglia
Denial is the avoidance of noticing something that might disturb us. It is the resistance to the confusing welter of emotions that offer valuable insights into our emotional episodes. It is the obscuration of intelligent response to incoming and outgoing energies of the underlying qualities of our Soul. While we could continue on the path of pain that leads to the pit of despair, there is still another choice, one of refined awareness freeing us from the recoiling and grasping of life to a more responsive channel of free will. Instead of abandoning or suppressing our emotions, we could see them as opportunities rather than threats. How uncontrolled and uncoordinated emotional responses are effects to bring attention to soul growth, whose opportunities occur so that we may gradually evolve into a more coordinated, fused and blended personality.
A divisive or bifurcated human is always subject to resistance. Once patterns are persisted, they become the path to least resistance, but when we resist, we deny and when we deny we lie to our selves. When we lie to ourselves, we to lie to others and the more we lie to others the more we come to believe the lies of our distortions. When we believe our distortions to such a degree, we become deluded. These are likened to the layers upon layers that obscure our emotional patterns. Veiled under the soot of our illusion is our inner diamond waiting to be discovered. We alone must decide when it is time to end the inner preoccupation of our negative emotional experiences and their psychological sufferings. It takes the courage of a warrior to uncover and transform our negative qualities into a mind free from constraint. My experience is “resolve to go deeper and deeper, truth above kindness and resolution over comfort,” this is the dedication necessary for such a task. There is bravery in those who are courageous enough to express their pain, their imperfections, and who not to give up on themselves when they see the reigning of their negative qualities upon their lives. Being in touch with our truthfulness dispels the fear of avoidance to be open with our feelings and provides a pathway to look at our emotional reactions and patterns with the full presence of awareness that is normally obscured by habits of inattention.
We might remember that mental anguish, emotional and physical pain is a signal to our body that something is amiss within us, that there is something to understand that needs investigation. For instance, frustrated desires, suppressed resentments, anger, greed, hatred and delusion are all emotional energy patterns that usurp our life force creating emotional pain and discomfort. Instead of turning a blind eye, we might anticipate a look at how much of our waking energy is spent creating a breeding ground for these powerful emotional forces whose effect is reactionary.
From outside of ourselves, the reactionary effects of our clinging to patterns and habits are more familiar than the root of cause that resides tangled within us. The clinging, the holding onto patterns simply creates the vicious cycle that reinforces the faulty beliefs that accompany them. If we expect change to occur or differentiate by looking through the same lens and respond the same way, we forever invite the pain of the vicious cycle whose energetic ring is circuitous, imprisoning the soul. The vicious cycle is the controlling factor whose cause and effect pattern eventuate its function within the Law of Attraction. This means that because energy follows thought, that wherever the mind focuses all its attention it attracts to the area of distress that results in becoming steadily worsened than better. Begin to examination of how emotional energy patterns move.
Law of Attraction~ A motion that gathers out of the immediately surrounding environment. The indiscriminate grasping of things needed from our point of focus that forces the appearance in a dynamic and forceful way with the quality impressed.
