POLARITIES – Part 1


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

“That which appears is not always that which truly is; that which rends and disrupts the personality life is frequently the agent of release, if rightly apprehended; that which will emerge when the Forces of Light have penetrated the world of darkness, will demonstrate the nature of the undying human spirit.”                                                                                            ~Ponder on This, A Compilation

 Polarity refers to all the dualities that we are and experience that reflects the need of every human to extend and combine with the polar opposite to create growth. Duality is the relationship between two seemingly contradictory views or emotions, thoughts or dichotomous behaviors that forms a “hole” within the whole. While everything contains within it the essence of its opposite, duality is an illusion of the mind that prevents the integration of opposing parts. In reality, it simply refers to relationships between two bodies of consciousness.

Duality is the illusion that we think we are separate from our source of wholeness. We believe this because we struggle with so much opposition that it seems as if there are only two points of view and that our survival depends upon them. For example, the primary mass cleavage is in the connection between self and planet Earth and the extremes between plentitude and scarcity represented in the world, which is reflective of an inner opposition of acceptance and connection with all that is. In order to be healthy in life we must balance our tendencies with their opposing forces in nature by remaining flexible so that we may attune into the heart of the greater planetary rhythm that rides in tandem with the Kosmic forces of our Universe. When we make this heavenly connection, we are open to receive from the light above, the Will of Divine Grace and begin to function as an instrument along the evolutionary pathway that awakens into the Heart of the Divine Plan.

 When our opposites are brought into balance, we feel a sense of wholeness, unity and completion. With balance comes emotional integration and freedom from inner conflict of what we think, feel, say and do, which means that we have finally brought a sense of peace within the diversity of our nature. Integration of our lower bodies (physical, emotional and mental) means that we free ourselves from the patterned conditionings and ways of acting that are out of balance because they do not support our highest good. When we respond out of love in situations than react out of preprogrammed ways of living life we strengthen our core self. Living a conditioned life deplete of our true expression is a distortion of who we are and is therefore, out of balance with our essential self. This imbalance reflects within our body system, as all unbalanced thoughts and feelings do in acute or chronic situations.

Polarity also expresses as an opposing energy when we want to be other than our selves, different than we are. Here we project how we want to appear to the world. In extreme polarity, we are opposite our self in nature and assume a dominant energy expression or pattern that runs the personality counter to its souls urge. Take for example, the reflection of our selves perceived through a mirror. The effect that we see in the mirror is a reflection that is opposite or inverted. It does not project reality as it is, rather than reflect our perception that appears as reality. These false realities become our projecting patterns that move us through life totally unaware of everything because we are too caught up in ourselves to put the mirror down. Even though energy patterns of expression shift in different areas of our lives, they persist because the emotional body is ever malleable. While the pattern may appear to be subtle in one area of our life, it is often recognizable in another. When we are constantly postured in defense to guard our falsehoods we are unable to hear praise, constructive criticism, be open to affection and quality friendships because we reject taking chances towards fulfillment, of beauty in our lives, money or even to hear the message in our illness. Contractedness from life keeps our field closed from the ability to tap into the flowing circuit of prosperity emanating from the Universal Law of Balance.

The Universal Law of Balance concerns the generative cycle of giving and receiving that flows through the aggressive and receptive energies of the masculine and feminine principle as they fuse together to form the spontaneous compassionate heart. True giving is the expression of our value. It flows easily when we are in fullness rather than depletion.  For instance, we may give to others with obligation or calculation with the intent of receiving accolades or as a way to push us further along in our aspirations. However, this act is grasping because it clings to a need behind the act, which is often compulsory and fueled by an inner emptiness that stems from our feelings of unworthiness. Addictions of all kinds thrive on this attitude of neediness, which does not allow spontaneous giving to occur and therefore inhibits or short-circuits the generative cycle of giving and receiving.

Awakening to A New Earth

Awakening to a New Earth Starts with Ourselves

By Alisa Battaglia

“Our morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to our lives.” ~ Albert Einstein

There are many things that cause my essence to leap out in passionate expression. Such fundamentals are found in a beautiful environment bestowed through Nature & by the human hand-societies cultural artifacts; loving relations cultivated through the heart of compassion, which fosters goodwill toward all; and service to humanity, governed in Truth by the laws of Spirit-the pervading One Life that connects everything together even when it appears disconnected and chaotic on the outside.

The cultivation and preservation of these primary fundamentals rely on the foundation of Free Will in order to take root and flower in expression. Imagine Free Will as the soil upon which humanity lives, moves and has its being. But, what exactly does Free Will mean? In humans, it is the power or capacity to choose among alternatives or to act in certain situations independently of natural, social, or divine restraints. Without such a principle, our creative imagination would have no natural channel for manifestation and authentic communication. Communication is our most essential right. Without the freedom to communicate, other rights deteriorate cracking the foundation upon which all else is built.

When our capacity to freely communicate is muffled, our 1st amendment is threatened and walls are erected in order to block channels of communication. When there is a need to block, coerce, destabilize, confuse, divide, manipulate, distort and control there is always an insidious agenda of force that attempts to hide something…pulling a veil over the eyes of humanity…to seal the truth from those who have ears, eyes, can speak and think abstractly that is the bigger picture. Illusion is an obscured sense of reality.

Please note that it is impossible to govern the law of one’s own being if one is not aware of what is going on around them politically. The political arena deeply affects our lives as it sets the stage for what is permissible socially, economically, environmentally and even personally. When people choose not to admit to things that are apparent or even acknowledge the subtleties of intuition that cause them to think twice, that often discarded for failure to believe such things could actually occur…there is a need to break free from the illusory trappings of our cultural conditioning and patriarchal template that is presently functioning in the extreme. When we do not choose and instead fence sit, by default, we align with the forces that seek to control, manipulate, and destroy life. We lose our voice, our capacity to communicate freely and most importantly, we surrender our Free Will.

 We live in an era in time where we are confronted with what we consider a greater sense of freedom than most, but now as a populace rising to awareness we discover that our freedoms in all areas of life are truly being usurped and threatened. As this occurs, we hear many stories about goodly forces that are to rise against the dark forces of invasion to save the human species without our need for action or some claim miraculous intervention by just waiting and praying. Brothers & Sisters, WE ARE THOSE PEOPLE that we read and hear about, WE ARE THE MIRACULOUS…THE GOODLY FORCES & SAVIOURS when each of us enters our heart into guidance of action in alignment with the greater Spiritual Will that is ALWAYS Life Affirming! Naturally when we enter a crisis in perspective we must be careful not to respond reflexively…we must move beyond our mammalian–programming which contains a pair of primal routines: fight & flight; dominance & submission; hunter & prey; victim-perpetrator, and so on. Perhaps we must think more and reflect with intensity, honesty, and emotional courage – to walk the labyrinth of our psyches to gain a kind of “mountain-top” perspective necessary to keep the human biography alive.

The higher road is for each of us to claim our courage with an assertiveness that is always necessary as is boundary setting and boundary defending. In some part of our lives, we must decry, “Enough!” This claiming does call for great intestinal fortitude, but outside events often are forced upon us slowly until we recognize the necessity of claiming our legitimate needs that we exercise the power of our Wills. This evolution of the Self is often an undertaking of a Herculean effort. Those who respond weakly generally experience some sort of victimization, are exploited, abused, get depressed or into accidents.

Ponder this statement closely in relation to the archetype of the Spiritual Warrior: “There may be violence, but no love of violence. There is skill with the sword, but no love for the sword.”

Let us awaken & join together in cohesive action to preserve the good, the beautiful and the True, both human and planetary life.

Heartfelt Blessings,

Alisa Battaglia
