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 Functioning from the head, the focus is most often on material gain or position while the emotions are withdrawn from the needs of self and others.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.

 

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.

When Information Creates Ripples of Confusion

When Information creates within us ripples of confusion about who we are, we move into self doubt. Doubt produces fear in the unknowing and fear is the great self-abnegator. It is the very illusion placed before us that cuts us off at the knees in surrendering our identity to something other, which denies the truth of our authentic Self – our Self-conscious Spirit.

While, it is not always so easy to do the inner work to arrive at this fact or to think wholly for ourselves without others opinions or intrusions that guide us away from our inner knowing’s. We must however, begin to monitor our thoughts and apply common sense logic to them, question them and the philosophies that perpetuate imbalanced living before they are as readily embraced as our own.  When we step back to review the picture we must use discernment as to what is real and of that which is psychologically imagined. Sometimes what we think is actually imagined is real and what appears real is a projection of the imagination or of mind shaping technologies. We live in a time where realities merge through technologies invisible in everyday life and where the information from those channels creates ripples of confusion.

We must take note that psychological imaginings are implanted by external injections of fear – terror variegated by external interests in keeping the collective mind “free to roam in a box” of a particular systems template or manufactured psychological paradigm. For some the box is entirely cozy with no thought to venture beyond its confines. Others attempt to think outside the box, but hurts the head to stretch intellect at times where it is easier to just attach our attention to others ideas, to the latest spiritual fad out there or superficial impulse. To clutch to the one that sounds terrific enough to stimulate the lethargic mental body, but really it is not so much the quickening of the mental body we must be concerned with, but the feeling intuitive heart faculty.

The world illusions are many, fear produced realities and the miasms of our social conditioning keep us in fright more than fight or flight. Fear and self-doubt produces a strong hold on the psyche literally immobilizing the mind into “learned helplessness.” Subverting humanity into sheeple, into learned helplessness, has not been entirely difficult. Simply create a system of ideologies, religious and political dogmas, occult distortions to truth and accepted social norms that when deviated from through any form of self thought, produces a backlash that ostracizes the individual or groups in public domain.  Beware! When one discovers and liberates from a fear bracket, there is always another boogie man to take its place in the necessity of keeping the motor of the fear machine running.

In a world of conflicting realities and equivalent states of being, puppeteering agendas and ideologies induced on a global scale, superficial value systems and social norms with their derived life purposes of occult imaginings, we must hold the courage to face the truth of what is both in the world and inside our selves and then to step aside from the fear mongering that produces the vicious cycle of addictive consciousness.

The antidote to a grounded and centered existence in love with life is to understand the machinations of the fear machine and to UNPLUG from its vampirism – its life sucking tentacles! Fear with all its correlates feeds and strengthens the Beast that seeks to control us!

How do we salvage ourselves from the hungry Beast –the tentacles of the Sycophant? At some point in our life’s journey, the hard knocks of trial and error or perhaps we are lead through a series of synchronicities or instant revelation that we come to oblige our feelings and choose to listen to the unease that points us towards better feeling states in the direction of the true north of our Being. Our feelings if we listen will always show us how far we have deviated from our alignment with Source – our true North. Since we dwell in a physical body, all information must engage the feeling intuitive heart, which is the language of co-creation in fifth dimensional manifestation. The intuitive feeling heart consists of a very different quality of essence. This essence is actually who we are in truth.

Our intuitive feeling heart is our guidance system, our infallible barometer for truth. Truth garnered through our intuitive feeling faculty emanates from the heart throughout the entire fabric of our being in effulgent effortless flow like a hollow bone, while untruths, doubts and fears contract within us and get lodged in the body as miasms. These miasms of interrupted or suppressed thought and feeling produces the dis-ease states we feel as the inner pressure of confusion, anxiety and  fear in our lack of natural discernment of our feeling faculty. Such effects always occur when we are out of alignment with our feeling integrity…of our soul’s truth as the living God within us.

We learn what we must do to bring ourselves back into integrity. The product of our lives and what and whom we draw into it also show us. Our feelings tell us how close or far we are from our center alignment with soul/Source connection.  Loving ourselves and self care with appropriate boundaries that serve the highest & best self in us can keep us essentially close to center.  Always move towards better feeling states….when we feel fabulous we are aligned and in sync. When we feel out of sorts we have some feeling work to do to move through obstruction in order to help us get clear and make space to reach center.  The question always remains, how crappy must we feel and do we even care enough that we feel like crap to adjust our lives towards our greater potential? So we must be concerned with enough self love to not allow ourselves to feel like crap and move back toward a better feeling state that leads to alignment with Source – our great sustainer.

My motto is “ground, center & expand” to maintain a modicum of equilibrium on a daily basis. We can do this through a simple meditation that grounds us into the natural Earthen timeline by connecting us to our heart centered self, as soul essence – the nexus of our true expression. It is upon this octave of being that we seek to express while in our earth bodies. From this centering vantage point, we interface our personality with Soul and spiritual lineage to God head. We produce an alignment…a direct connection, an umbilical cord to sustenance…and we FEEL fantastic. It is from this feeling alignment that if we deviate in ordinary life through negative thought, word and action, that we feel out of sorts from our interruption with Source connection.

Grounding into the Natural Earth Timeline

Focus your energy into the Heart and breathe deeply. Know that your consciousness is anchored in your Heart. Experience that reality as a deep sense of Unconditional Love and Connection to All That Is. Feel also the deep Peace that is part of that Consciousness. Then, allow that energy to move downwards through the solar plexus, the sacral and the base chakras and down into the Earth Star Chakra, located within the Earth just beneath your feet. Feel how you are now anchoring your energy into the Earth into her inner matrix as you connect with your Earth Star Chakra. Now, let that energy move further down to connect with the Crystal Heart at the center of the Earth. Here you feel the deep and unconditional Love of the Earth Mother coming up to you, through the Earth Star Chakra and into your Heart. Hold that Love in your Heart, and know that you are deeply Loved and Nurtured by the Earth Mother, and that you are in Alignment with the Divine Will for the Earth, as expressed through the evolution of the Planet into Multi-dimensional Reality.

The glow of Love expands from your heart and enfolds you in a translucent pillar of light. Continue to move the energy up your body, through the Throat, Brow and Crown chakras, and up into the Soul Star Chakra that is located just above the head. Here, you connect with your Soul and your “I AM” presence, as it anchors into your Physical Form. Here you can also connect with your Purpose for being here now, and with your Divine Essence. Feel the Unconditional Love and Beauty of your Soul as you align with your Higher Purpose for this lifetime.

It feels wonderful and filled with brilliant and radiant light. Now, let that energy move upwards through the Dimensions of Light to your Spiritual Lineage aligning with the Great Cosmic Heart of All That Is. Here you feel the Infinite Love of the Source for All that Is. Draw that pulsating and radiant light back down into your Heart and hold it there to ground Spirit into matter. You are now aligned with Divine Will, for yourself and for the Earth. When you are in this alignment, mediating between Heaven and Earth, you will find it a simple matter to be grounded into Earths natural Timeline and to experience the energies of Peace, Calm and Abundance. Life will shift into Simplicity and Clarity as you follow the Divine Guidance or impulse that will come to you on this new Timeline of Grace and Love.
