Connecting the Dots between Our Inner and Outer Worlds

Connecting the Dots between Our Inner and Outer Worlds
By Alisa Battaglia

I gather information, watch videos, listen to talks, blogs, read articles, study research, have discussions and opinions about different burning issues acting out in today’s political theater. Oftentimes, these ideas of humankind are thought-provoking that often leads me to make connections between an issue or situation—connecting the dots so to speak, to perceive the larger framework in manifestation. These connective links of information that form a working composite are checked and balanced against spiritual insight to weave inner connections. Many times the results are perceived at first to be negative in that they have the capacity to produce a fear reaction. Yet, from a wholistic perspective there is a silver lining that if perceived rightly and acted upon with courage, can create rapid fundamental change individually and for the planet.

While this may be true, I do find that few can read information and assess it without taking it inside themselves. This lack of detachment does little to enable best choices in this changing economic arena we are all facing. In fact, it can cause an utter rebellion allowing the ego complex to take reign over the higher wisdom of the Soul. We live in discerning times now where we must exhibit extraordinary courage and action to preserve our freedom and liberties for All before they are dissolved to an increasingly controlling government.

Fundamental change only takes place in attitude. Both life affirming and life destroying polarities are playing out upon the 3-D world stage. There seems to be a vying for power, yet the powers in struggle over consciousness are of two different energies and intentions, one being creative and expansive seeking to connect and liberate the Soul, while the other is banal and contractive seeking to detach and imprison the human Soul into automaton. We each must decide which side of fence we choose to sit on and be true to our choice. Wavering, by default puts in alignment with those who choose peril over Peace.

No doubt, many of us will be struggling in some way and at different levels. It may be financially to maintain a roof over our head, having enough food in the cupboard or affording the essentials. While for others, it may be in relationships, with attachments/addictions, finding our purpose and engaging in time critical missions to a struggle between ego-mind and Soul dominance. Wherever we are, we must start from that point and move forward. Don’t look towards others to find your inner truth. We can be lead to information and wisdom to potentate awakening, but we cannot rely on another to give birth unto ourselves. This is a lone process on our path of awakening, however others often help us get there padding the terrain via their presence, attention, love and care. Love relationships offer us a unique gift in that they are a fast track to our evolutionary growth. Praise them, embrace them! Dig deeper!

May this season open us to new paradigms, creations, and new beginnings for stepping into our individual and collective Soul power. Let us become the highest possible expression of life and to fully realize ourselves – to find our wings, connect the inner dots to our outer path and fly. Our Soul mate is waiting! Our Soul flock is waiting! It’s a unitary endeavor! We are the ones we have been waiting for! Let us construct a new path that bridges the divide in both self, with our divine lover, humanity, Nature and God. Let us uplift together and allow peace to fill our hearts for rebirth into a new life that can generate a world of Peace, both inside and out.

The Vicious Cycle Of Addictive Consciousness

“No great improvements in the lot of mankind are possible, until a great change takes place in the fundamental constitution of their modes of thought.” -John Stuart Mill

“When will we stop rebelling against our emotional pain?” is a question we might ask our selves.  The amount of self-hatred we carry for our selves reflects our self-destructive host of addictions that shuts down of our sensory capacity asphyxiating our human life force.

When we deny the essence of our essential self and function from an ego-based perspective, we deny ourselves the gift of healing, of growth and of creation through our evolving senses. When we are bound in the fearful egos conflicts and contradictions we create a contagion of friction with our essential self or soul that diminishes our life force and our intuitive sense of the universe. We close off the capacity to listen to our essential self and the world creating sensory obstruction. This process of self-denial is what I have coined, “The Vicious Cycle of Addictive Consciousness.”

The primary focus of ego, as the gatekeeper of the physical body is survival at all costs and as such creates resistance to save us rather than hurt us. It believes that too much physical and/or emotional pain can cause both the body and it to die so that is uses fear as its primary form of communication and main tool to keep us alive. This modus operandi conflicts with the direct will of the soul creating sensory obstruction. On a physical level sensory obstruction impedes the flow of vital life energy congesting the body producing dis-ease. On an emotional level it results in inhibitions and exhibitions that cover the authenticity in our feeling nature. On the soul level it is the obscuration of intelligent response to incoming and outgoing energies that is a potent agent of cohesion and integration.

 Following the Law of Attraction that energy follows thought in the focus of our attention, whichever inner body is the strongest,  that is, our mental, physical, and emotional or Spiritual, controls the action of the human vehicle like an automaton on the physical plane. For example, if our thoughts dominate how much we lack love in life and are concerned with what we must do to get it, our point of focus would be held within the emotional realms of the astral plane. If our attention is towards personality integration with our Soul to gain psychological freedom and to bring harmony through conflict in our lives, our point of focus is upon the Spiritual realm.

 When we resist on any level, we deny and when we deny we avoid noticing something that might disturb us obscuring our emotional patterns.  We create avoidance by distracting our attention from the confusing welter of emotions that offer valuable insights into our emotional episodes often lingering from our unprocessed childhood wounds. The longer we obscure our emotional patterns, resisting the attention and release of our pain rising to conscious awareness, the more we come to believe our distortions. To the degree that we believe our distortions we become deluded and the more challenging it becomes to trust anything other than our habitually resistant responses. Imbued in the pattern of resistance we obstruct the release of our pain and become a slave to the habituated mind rather than the master of it. When we allow our selves to be enslaved by tendencies that constitute forms of dangerous appetites, we deny and our denial is proportionate to the amount of self-love we have for ourselves. The more we love ourselves our lives reflect awareness and the less we tolerate self-abuse and abuse from others, but when love is not proportionate and does not reflect awareness we get caught in habituation and accept abuse into our lives. Veiled under the soot of our delusion is the essence of our essential self that waits to be uncovered.

We alone must decide when it is time to end the inner preoccupation of our negative emotional experiences and their psychological sufferings. Acceptance alone intends a new beginning and by choosing what is emotionally and spiritually healthy we empower ourselves, although challenging at times, the results far outweigh the difficulty of the initial choice of action. There comes a point, however, in our human panentheism that is our natural urge to evolve, when the heralding of choice is realized, and yet, that choice may be to continue the temporary escape of our selves’ through a plethora of distraction obliterating our spiritual voice to the eventual liberation of physical death. Running away from conflict only perpetuates the vicious cycle of addictive consciousness. It does not erase it, but rather postpones issues that must be faced later. “When will we change? Now or later?” is the question we must ask our selves and a choice we each must make!

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 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. For instance, frustrated desires, suppressed resentments, anger, greed, hatred and delusion are all emotional energy patterns of inattention that thwarts the root of our malaise, which usurps 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 reactionary emotional forces.

To uncover the painful experiences that lurk behind our deep self-loathing, our consumed guilt, mental anguish, anger and physical pain that we seek to avoid is a signal to our body that something is amiss within us, that there is something to understand that needs investigation. We adapt this attitude; we see the message of our emotional blocks as an opportunity to understand our selves rather than convey it as a threat.  Even though 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, we can stand back and see how our uncontrolled and uncoordinated emotional responses are effects to bring attention to soul growth. This gives us the ability to see them as opportunities that occur so that we may gradually evolve into a more coordinated, fused and blended personalitybringing awareness to the essence of our essential self.

The people with whom we surround ourselves, the quality of our thoughts, the intention behind our actions, the truth in our speech with that of our hearts is a mirror that reflects what we need to see about ourselves, in one another and what aspects within us that we are not at peace with. Essentially, what we need to bring change to. Giving our selves the freedom to challenge what needs shifting is a powerful agent for change and for the realization of our dreams. To be free in this sense is to venture seeing not only what is in the world, but what is possible for us!

A Living Love

A Living Love

By Alisa Battaglia

“Let us not Love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” John 3:18

Permanently extending Valentines Day over the rest of our lives could transform us and furthermore, extend our love on a wider scale of Goodwill towards all sentient life that could certainly transform the world!

Let everyday be an expression of your love and gratitude for your loved ones and essential kindness towards others. There is no need to wait for the annual reminder of Valentine’s Day to authentically share your heart. Presents are a delightful way to enter the doorway of surprise, but remember it’s not really about buying cards, chocolate and gifts or spending money that is wiser spent elsewhere. It is rather time well spent with the one you love intimately bringing you closer together, in body, heart and Soul.

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For Love is sufficient unto Love.

When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, “I am in the heart of God.”
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy directs your course.

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love; and to bleed willingly and joyfully. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving; To rest at the noon hour and mediate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude; And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.”

~Kahlil Gibran

Responding to Your Clarion Call

 

Responding to Your Clarion Call

Those who have ears, may they hear.”

 By Alisa Battaglia

The energetic impulse of 2020 is about taking action in our lives with enthusiasm while standing at the edge of a precipice. It is about initiative that is provoked from deep within to awaken us in some way-to shatter the false security beneath our feet. The quickening message may come from our intuition, inspiration or the stark reality of our situation, through a tragedy of some sort, the loss of a job or even threatened health. Whatever sphere of life that requires attentive action, the arising impulse from within us is about the need to make visible alterations in and out side ourselves. For many, this wake-up call is felt as an unwelcome intrusion disturbing the safe harbor of our mechanical ways, which requires letting go of foundations previously counted upon. Here we are shown where we have given our power away, as no form can seduce us, use us, or betray us without our permission and cooperation. Discernment is the faculty we use to determine the true nature of any image or situation.

Mastering our lives is about finding the balance point between our need to control and the call to entirely surrender unto the wisdom of our Essential Self, as Soul or Spirit. For some this may be about trusting in the movement of Spirit and putting “knowing,”- the Spirit of Truth into action, while for others there may be a need to confront deeply buried fear of the power that is their Essence. Still, some may be a need to cultivate the character to be less critical and more accepting, or a relationship may demand new ways of relating. The inner call, too, may be to implement new ideas into a project, such as writing a book or changing an avocation into a vocation, in order to serve in joy. Whatever the need, the true wisdom of our experience is showing us the power of choice, that we can choose love and trust over fear and doubt.

Too often, when the clarion call comes we ignore our internal signals of closing and opening doors to change. We resist that which seeks new direction and grasp to our myriad attachments, ways of thinking and doing in fear of what a life of meaning and purpose may demand of us. Sometimes we may need to say “No” to a potential door opener, which is a valid choice when the timing is not ripe when instead what may be required of us is more discipline, more patience and a deeper trust that the Universe is essentially supportive. However, when we refuse all signals to align our lives in rhythm with Source and let fear override a deeper connection with our Essence, we bifurcate and move against ourselves that carries even more consequences. This is when the Universe, through the Magnetic Law of Attraction and the greater wisdom of our Soul intercedes thus, designing the forms of loss we encounter meant to pull us onto a path of illumination. Hence, the greater our attachments the more painfully we experience loss.

The cyclic energy of Earth through the first quarter of the new year calls us to take hold of the Universe’s positive energy to guide us into action, to make choices-to reset our goals, clear space to embrace the new and to honor the expression of our inner calling with courage and commitment. This enlivening energy asks us to accept responsibility, to leave our comfortable past and abandon our imagined futures, reconcile and transcend, as Truth arises from within. When we say “Yes,” to life we feel a quickening within our hearts, we breathe deeply, and embrace everything with flexibility to the changes life presents to us through synchronicity and golden opportunity. We reap rich rewards when we believe enough in our selves to pursue our inner call and invite the dialog of love into everything. Fostering a support system helps to ground our creative energies and acts to lend clear vision of what we want and where we are going that then makes us accountable in fulfilling our goals.

If nothing else, remember this. “The Master of Divine Sovereignty” is inside each and every one of us. Let choice allow its presence to occupy the place of authority in each of our experiences. Surrender unto its guide every thought, word and action to produce a sense of security, a strong foundation far beyond anything previously known. Let the powerful transformative Saturnian energies of Capricorn help stave off our personal attachments to stories, experiences, and fears. Let it be about how each embrace their Soul’s authority and step into the lineage of Light that we are. This is my wish for us all!”

In Sovereignty,
Rev. Alisa Battaglia

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.

WE THE PEOPLE ~ A Collective Energy Field

WE THE PEOPLE
A Collective Energy Field

By Alisa Battaglia

 From the heart of creation emanates a holographic force field that underlies the fabric of existence in its many dimensional levels.  It connects all life that has ever been, is, and of the future and is the pathway back to Source. This force is so great and will always prevail over of the seeming—the circumstances that we perceive as suffering, devastation, and war that is a thread in the divisive seam of time, an occurring part in the whole system of creation that we call reality.

The glue that holds this One Life together is LOVE. Love is the Master Grid that ensures the appropriate distribution of life-force energy that provides the templates needed for material creation, and is the physicalized expression of the sacred code of creation itself. Love is the blueprint of consciousness expressed in harmonic form. The Love principle is an example of feminine spiritual heart energy or compassion held within and completely embodied in the physicality and lived as that light essence.

Each of us has a force field around us—a personal grid that connects us to the Unity Grid, the Earth Grid and the Mass Consciousness Grid. Tapping into a particular grid will reveal its particular expression.

The current mass consciousness grid or template misuses spiritual masculine force in the expression of life energy. Resonating within this collective energy field is how we have a shared experience on the planet. There is no wonder that its lower vibration provides the channel way to spread divisiveness through fear, pain, stagnation, war, poverty, hunger, disease and victimhood.

There are myriad belief structures or programs that are not necessarily true or provide the “only” alternative to the way life must be. We all have the same potential within us to live our higher Self—to embody a new awareness. To be fully aware in the body as indwelling souls that operates at a higher reality of ideals rather than standards. Embodying the awareness, this knowing as that, is the journey of our existence. The biggest illusion that we must disengage from —to make the break from the mass conscious survivalist grid to the Master Grid of Unity Consciousness —is the illusion of separation. We are all divinely interconnected.

Since we each are connected to the Master Grid we, too can live as an expression of the sublime. We can choose which field of expression to live, move and have our being. Ultimate reality states that we are Love.

Forgiveness~ Disconnecting from the Past

Forgiveness
Disconnecting from the Past
By Alisa Battaglia

When we have surrendered our expectations, softened our hearts and found the gift in our wounding experiences we are ready to activate the heart through forgiveness. Forgiveness may not be easy, but it will make us feel better by freeing our negativity and increasing our self control. The role of forgiveness is essential in our healing passage because it disconnects us from the grippings of the past and gives us confidence to get through other tough situations without harboring resentment, panicking or losing control. Forgiving does not mean that we have to forget what was done to us, or suddenly befriend or approve of someone who has trespassed against us. It does mean that we release our aggressors of any lingering resentments and also to forgive ourselves from mis-takes so that we may finally move forward to be wholly present in our lives.

As we evolve and develop a greater depth of understanding there is a natural willingness to engage in forgiveness.  The very act of forgiveness heals, constructs bridges and breaks down barriers in building right relationships in families, groups, communities, nations and humanity—the world of the soul.  It is understood that without forgiveness there can be no authentic relationships unless separative and narrow thinking are relinquished.

Forgiveness is not only a charitable act or benevolent gesture that we bestow or withhold at times. True forgiveness is actually an act that we do for ourselves to let go of the burden that hurt brings when we hold on. For example, we first experience a transgression as a loss in peace, happiness and separation that causes us to build defenses to keep a person out of our lives. Holding such a burden usurps our vital energy and we suffer in myriad ways. When we love ourselves we do what we need to do to liberate ourselves from the bondage of feeling separate, otherwise we trap ourselves in the ignorance that we are NOT from the same One Life and Source and we trespass against ourselves. True forgiveness helps to bind the spiritual realms ever closer to humanity. It is the recognition of our Oneness and the remembrance of our True Self as immortal spirit.

Both religious and psychological traditions have long extolled the virtues of forgiveness in the promotion of psychological, relationship and physical health. In fact, research studies conducted through the Stanford Forgiveness Projects have shown forgiveness to reduce anger, hurt, depression and stress, which leads to greater feelings of optimism, hope, compassion and self confidence. Holding onto blame, judgment and expectation keeps our wounds open, while only forgiveness heals.

The four stages of forgiveness found in Clarissa Pinkola-Estes’s book, “Women who Run with the Wolves” is an alchemical recipe that catharts us through the forgiveness process. It provides an actual capacity to disconnect from the object of our attention imbuing universal wisdom.

  • to forego- to leave it alone
  • to forebear – to abstain from punishing
  • to forget – to aver from memory, to refuse to dwell
  • to forgive – to abandon the debt

What will you forgive in yourself today?

All of Life is in Polarity

All of Life is in Polarity
By Alisa Battaglia

All of life is in polarity-that is, in relationship to its opposite or polar energy and our level of connectivity in relation to it. For instance, our relationship in opposition to the social structures set into place. The disconnection or division comes from having to labor our living at the expense of our creative soul urge. Life demands that we work and pay taxes for our keep and yet this causes a drain on our life force creating exhaustion, dis-ease and aberrations. The balance, of course, between the two polarities would be to find right livelihood…in so many terms, to “Live our Bliss.”

The second opposition that we struggle with is our relationship to our environment. With the first opposition in concretization, there is little time for connection with nature outside office buildings. In cars, we come and go to the workplace, the mall, grocery stores and so on. We pass by what is left of nature around us. We are disconnected because there is no real connection to the environment. This lack of connectivity to nature causes us to disengage from vital life preserving forces that through connection would align us by default to the greater rhythm of our planetary body and the Kosmic circuit in which it resides. Harmonizing with nature whether by walking through a park, gardening, or even honoring the moons monthly cycles puts us in touch with the greater rhythm that has become so elusive in our busy lives.

The polarity continues as we move within because what we see that is not right in society is actually a reflection of the collective mindset in a particular area. This points us in the direction of looking at that which is not right within us. Inner conflict runs between extremes. On one end of the polarity spectrum there is total withdrawal expressed as narcissism in the personality complex. The narcissistic defense mechanism is one that detaches emotions from intimate forms of connectivity with a need to control life, people and circumstances. Functioning from the head, the focus is most often on material gain or position while the emotions are withdrawn from the needs of self and others. Sensitivity and inner sight of the authentic nature is lost and life is superficial and myopic. However, for every control freak there is a counterpart to play out the role of victimhood or supplicant. This is best expressed in the co-dependent and addictive mindset whose intense emotional grasping to things, people and circumstances causes them to lose sight of their deepest needs and desires as a human being. Again with the focus powered onto the object of ones attention-things, people, drugs and alcohol, money and gambling, clothes and glamour, thoughts, and so on, the fulfillment of the immediate need causes the mind to skim only the surface of self, others and life. Both expressions, one overly mental and one emotional, produce disjointed human beings. When time is not taken to examine what is right and not right within us, we live miserable, lonely and loveless lives. Passion for life’s gifts, mysteries or energy to investigate them is lost, as life energy is disconnected from the Kosmos, nature and self…and slowly the spirit within is asphyxiated from lack of connection to the wellspring of life. The spirit within is the nexus of our existence – it is the force that animates our body, the Promethian Spark that gives life and substance to an otherwise lifeless body.

The next polarity and perhaps the most vital, as it moves to the very core of our existence is between the human being in relation to spirit – the polarity between resistance to living our inner light and fully embracing our divinity. The question is “Who are you in relationship to this borrowed body whose name you call yourself?” “Are you the body or the dweller within the body?” This apparent disconnection to the source of our being is the very peril that binds us from liberation. Our mental constraints take the lead setting parameters when the soul is timeless and without human boundary. The soul’s limitless space reflects the potential of our human capacity. Our connection to the source of our divinity is the stuff that all of life is made. In this space or void, the boundaryless fairway of existence is the opposite spectrum of our human struggle – the brain that divides, bifurcates, separates and sections off with an attachment to ways of perceiving and living. Finally, the polarity of the soul in relation to Spirit – between the souls urge to immerse back into Sources spiraling well of energy as One Life or attachment to the souls sheath.

In all these levels of connectivity and separateness are layers and layers of differentiation between them. The balance point always meets at the neutral middle – the center path of heart where there is acceptance in the reflection of the other. It is the point of light within us that is wise, creative, joyful and loving. This sacred point of light that is the true self within is the initiator between extremes, the conjoiner of opposites – the multitude of polarities that exists on this plane. When we arise from the heart of neutrality, the true center of reality we act as the center point between Heaven and Earth.

 

The Illusion of Fear and Addiction~ the Psyche of Limitation

The Illusion of Fear and Addiction~ the Psyche of Limitation

Fear has many faces, love has one”~Alisa Battaglia

By Alisa Battaglia, B.D., C. H.T., EFT, TH

FEAR occurs in the emotional realm of human consciousness. It is the dominant emotional energy permeating our planet at present time whose distortion, aggression and violence are all negative limitations implanted in the feeling-thought complex of which emotion is derived.  While this defensive mindset is no exception, it functions as a survival mechanism that proves to be suicidal operating in an exploitive mode of consciousness. Its presence is capable of reducing human beings into timid and frightened automatons insufficient to cope with life’s situations and stupefied by the problems of existence. Fear is the greatest enemy of self-understanding and the basic element that supports an addictive and compulsive mindset expressed in a myriad of unconstructive ways within our own lives and within our global paradigm.

Fear is the primary response that holds captive the human reigned by the five senses of the instinctual life from evolving towards the higher grades of intellectual and intuitive consciousness. Understanding the basis of psychological fear will help us meet with our instinctual fear nature that is part of our primal brains genetic DNA inherited from ancient human memory of past pain and grievances. The primal part of the brain that we have long inherited from animals in our human evolution whose biological conditioning in nature is based upon the ignorance of Universal Law and forces of nature and terror of the dark. It is the part of us reactive to threat that is meant to protect us and lend access to courage and directed will to carry out achievements that might normally have been impossible. However, when the stream of life is centered on this basic level it becomes dominated by the emotional responses of survival that protects and governs most of our habits.

Four psychological fears are borne out of the instincts for self-preservation. The sex instinct, which has its roots in the instinct of self-preservation, guarantees the progenitor of the species and abandons the psychological fear of loneliness of being unmated. The herd instinct governs us toward family and community, which abandon our fear of isolation. From the instinct of self-assertion we work to sustain our self and family from fear of death, victimhood or failure.  The instinct to enquire drives us forward to gain the depths of knowledge through experience and education for fear of not knowing or of being left behind. The instinctual survivalist fear package is a part of our DNA and can never be rid of, as it provides the vital foundation for all other facets of our development. We can, however, develop the necessary tools that will advance us in its integration within the gradient stages of evolving consciousness.

In order to extend beyond the initial stages of these instinctual fear vibrations that hold dominion over the non-mental animal kingdom and the emotionally reactive unthinking persons, we must be able to ascertain the dynamics that form the dysfunctional interplay between physical fear and psychological fear. In recognition of our deeply rooted psychological fears interconnected with our basic instinctual responses we can begin to examine the network of escapes, habits and addictions we have developed to pacify them. Unlike animals, the roots of psychological fear is a conditioned human response potently increased through the power of the mind and aggravated through the perpetuation of memory that draws upon accumulated experience, knowledge, tradition and time that creates the background from which we react. The combined effort of our conditionings and reliance of our instinctual senses to guide us through the everyday world makes us highly sensitive and uneasy to disarm.  Often, even something slight or someone instigating this indwelling impulse will trigger the primal guard whose relief of tension is an aggressive or violent response from that slight perturbation. This uncontrolled impulse is responsible for the reckless aggressive drivers that we experience on our highways everyday and for the jealous acts of passion that engage a protective and dominant response to threats against what we consider “our property.”

To grasp the basic nature of the personality governed first by instinct is to know that any situation whose actions are associated with defeat or borne of opposition than allowance, the lower mind structure will perceive it as a threat and will struggle to dominate. The power to dominate again is easily seen in an aggressive driver on a highway that speeds up and challenges passage irked by a slowing vehicle to change a lane or in the exit of the ramp. The struggle between functioning within our lower responses with the more evolved brain can be observed in the over-sensitized person whose emotional response pattern is towards hysteria, the energy is of a nervous quality with thoughts that run in an effusive manner and their dreams and visions are expanded filled with fear. The veneer for such an emotional response pattern would naturally be one of the extreme opposite of altercation whose defense mechanism is meant to keep any altercation from its core.

When we feel unsure the instinct of self-assertion clutches tightly for its survival and automates defensiveness. How often have we felt defensive by some looming insecurity or assassinated our characters or others because of it? If we did not get hooked into a defensive posture we observed two things. First, our instinctual need to take control by some form of response or action by striving for certainty of attitude and then to dominate it, which would be the directive power of the will upon another or plainly, manipulation by turning the situation around in blame or verbal abuse, or we would walk away defensively easily disguised. We can easily observe this emotional pattern in relationships whose unconscious instinctual fear attachment is expressed through jealousy. Jealousy is stirred into action when attention is moved away from us.  The response is assertiveness that seeks power over a loved one or friend as protectiveness through domination and pride of possession. Jealousy is a reaction for fear of loss that plugs into the illusion of security and whose distorted thinking is that if we have a person to ourselves and we can control them they won’t go away.

The same holds true for the fear of losing money whose emphasis of financial success dominates the competitive mind that there is not enough money for everybody and that in order to make money to live it must be taken from another in ruin to succeed. The motivation of this belief is structured at the most base level of our being whose fear of rejection by comparison values and survival is equally shared with all of humanity. These are the fears that teach us to say “No” to life for us to feel safe. They are the same fears that bring question to our worthiness of love and devotion and reject our deepest longings and dreams. These fears of limitation are the same limitations we have adapted to and have built our entire lives around.

Our vice for security makes for powerful illusions generated from a psychologically conditioned mind whose “fixed entity” our instinctual or lower mind relies upon to solve the problem of fear.  Through observation we see innumerous fears that infiltrate our minds that we believe to be true, in fact, our world is constructed of them and they are imbedded into our very code of existence creating conflict. We are always subjugating ourselves to patterns within a system whether they have been established by our selves or others creating immense stress that permeates and dominates our minds. An exhaustive amount of energy is dissipated by keeping control of the images of our selves and others in tact creating a falsity of internal order that never solves the insecurity that underlies it. When we seek to look deeply into how our self-image is justified and supported by this code of existence that is our conditioning, we see how fear has been imparted to us as an effective life tool having high value.  The only value that is worth honoring is the value that comes from honoring ourselves and sharing our gifts in whatever we do, the value of recognizing our worth no matter where we stand.

Moving through the fear

As we merge into our psychological fear brackets we no longer see it as a separate threat to us and we become our fear in motion as we walk through it trusting. Our mind begins to rejects the falsehoods that have been adapted to for generations and liberates us from its psychological attachment. We can now take control of the physical body and its reactions. The directional will of the higher mind frees our energy so that we are in a state of actuality than moot in fear of the unknown of what will be, or what was, riddled by the fear of the future or fear of the past.

We recognize that as long as we fight something we empower it and that when there is no renunciation of the mind reflected through the lower instinctual processes to the mind cognizance of the soul or Essential Self reflected through the higher brain states, there is no surrender to wholeness and we are left empty living life as a spiritual vagabond without fulfillment. Living fearfully is to live within an isolationist perspective where we shut out our Essential Self and therefore, render ourselves incompatible with wholeness that is love.  Trusting Spirit as ally removes the insidious fear while we come to understand the inherent Laws of the Universe that provides for us through all of life’s ups and downs, a path beneath our feet. When we recognize the mysterious force of energy, wisdom, patience and compassion operating in and through us we awaken from our illusion of fear – out of our minds jail to create our colorful dream of choice. Thereby, we transmute our state of fear holding the power to transform into a universal human and to co-create our present-future equal to our full potential. Living that choice changes our lives forever!

 In the poignant words of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, “In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.  The first is freedom of speech and expression – everywhere in the world.  The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way – everywhere in the world.  The third is freedom from want…the fourth is freedom from fear.”

How can I tell if I am on the track of fear?

  • Associative memory of the past makes me anxious and resistant to the next step when I am confronted with it.
  • I have multiple reasons that are both logical and legitimate and circumstances that support my resistance in moving forward.
  • I experience frequent episodes of burn out or lethargy.

Questions to Consider

  1. If fear did not stop you, what might you be doing differently?
  2. How does it make you feel to walk out of fear’s prison into freedom, which means to open your heart to yourself-accepting the essence of you as divine?
  3. What does it mean to you to create life based on possibility, than on fear’s teachings?
  4. In what specific way might you eradicate a fear and replace it with trust in your intuition or inner wisdom?

I can integrate my fear by:  

  • Setting personal boundaries around how much time I spend serving others and by using agreements to let others know what my boundaries are.
  • Keeping boundaries firm develops inner trust and strength, which means that I must agree not abandon my inner self when I feel the pain of someone’s rejection because I hold a boundary that keeps him/her from getting his/her needs met in the moment.

Returning Home ~ Living the Solution

Returning Home ~ Living the Solution  By Alisa Battaglia

As I observe the turning of the wave of world consciousness, points of tensions between producing problems and generating solutions for them ignite. This creates upheaval in humanities current social paradigm into a reactionary response to age old problems.  Yet, as problems surface young ingenious minds focused on responsibility for earth’s sustainability are creating newfound solutions. These solutions are in synthesis with the intelligent cocreative capacity of energy systems that when focused literally builds worlds.

So, it becomes interesting to note that for every problem created through unconscious unintegrated action in regard to the whole, there is a solution, but at a more expansive and inclusive level of consciousness.  The solution is always wholistic. It is bio-logical in that it extends, reconnects and awakens the inner threads of Being inherent to the living Earth Matrix, that contains and shares our authentic blueprint. We are not separate from Earth, but a part of her and all of Nature.  To separate this knowing from consciousness and to create from it is to create illusion.

I have discovered in my own life the antidote to stress, disconnected thought, agitation, depression, anxiety and all the divisive principles of orientation that produce inner conflict garnered by a “synthetic” techno-logic lifestyle, is the returning to “Nature processes.”  Here I find peace, clarity, joy, good feeling states, gratitude and a return to fullness and satisfaction of living in the NOW.

Nature offers us regeneration. Regeneration is the giving and receiving element of life that pertains to the generation of force or power. Nature is ever reciprocal as this recycling process is actually built into us through webstrings that feed our inner being, and sustain us offering existential nourishment to fulfill our greatest desires. Yet, when we disconnect our focus from Nature processes, these webstrings of interconnectedness collapse and we literally disengage our regenerative feeding tube to eventual asphyxiation. It is not possible any longer for the “power broker system” to self generate, earth is exhausted.  Instead, what the power system does is siphon energy from all life sources in order to sustain its failing existence. Its actions are neither sustainable nor regenerative because the system requires cannibalization.  It side steps Natures cooperative regenerative existence for one that competes and seizes without care for its own benefit and ego desire.

This synthetic arrangement created by the larger control Matrix is set up to eliminate self regeneration and to make life reliant on its consumer mechanics.  The mechanics of war and its fear producing paradigms is generated to procure the chaotic negative emotional energy it needs to survive.

Understand that the Power Matrix requires the usurping of life energies to get its energy. Unplug from the death urge system that has no capacity to self regenerate and it cannot exist. It only exists by manipulating human emotion and vampiring that energy to sustain itself. It is always taking energy and never giving back.  There is no regeneration, just a one sided taking.

When life is based on techno-logic economic values and its synthetic patterns of thought that supports the fake or superficial life, there is no energy.  Rather, the life energy is siphoned and recirculates itself into the Matrix system, but can not self regenerate because it has unplugged from Earth’s life sustaining energies. The energy siphoned is from the life blood of the human body and Soul draining life force into automaton.

It is evident that humanity has reached a point of inertia. The cogs in the Vampiric Wheel are waking up. The siphoned energies circulating in the Matrix system from Archontic forces are literally controlling the seed or Soul of Nature. This system of techno-logic has reached a destructive point in Earths biology that is no longer allowable. It is a non-sustainable system with no respect for Nature.

Life of those plugged into the power Matrix are in reaction mode, most in utter exhaustion as the self regenerating fuel of Nature has been cut off. Life is being asphyxiated from its primal element – the Soul of the Earth…the conjoiner of all life and systematically being replaced with cloned animals and humans, Artificial Intelligence,  and genetically engineered food stuffs combined with both plant, animal and human elements not for our wellbeing, but for the power Matrix. While there is little energy left, technology has turned man onto itself, cannibalizing to produce more energy into the cog. Naturally, this is the butt of all sorts of aberrations and diseases in Nature’s psychopathology.

Unplug from the Matrix virus – from the cog of the vampiric wheel that cares nothing for life, save what it needs. The only value for us is as a consumer to its synthetic ideology to create a false existence that is separate from Earth, because it is not “of Nature.”

Choose to feel! Reconnect with Nature realities to fill self with the regenerating nectar of life in its glorious ranges of multisensory information. Choose to partake in the solution as Earth’s resurrection Team – to first resuscitate the self as integral to the whole and then to act out that quality knowing and offer it unto the world stage. Bring the soul of humanity back Home to the authentic core of creation – the authentic source of nurturance. Return Home to the health giving forces of Nature from which we are indelibly connected – reach for the life sustaining rays of the Sun.
