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.

Withholding Judgment

Withholding Judgment

By Alisa Battaglia

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

Last weekend I participated in a shamanic ritual guided by Jorge Herreros trained by Maestro Don Solon Tello of N. Peru. In an intimate setting, twenty one of us experienced personal energetic journeys with the plant soul of Ayauasca (La Madrecita) in a revealing dance with our own Souls. My intention was to bring something back-a nugget of information to help others. When I asked, “What can I take back with me to help others?” the immediate and profound reply was to “Remove Judgment-that judgment is the great obstacle, it closes the heart from opening”. This was so simple and yet what we intellectually know, but perhaps don’t make it a conscious practice in our daily lives.

I decided to take heed the wisdom given. Since then I have been vigilant to the ways in which I judge. I have observed with clarity so many falsehoods whose foundations are based upon my conditioning, not my authenticity, those transgenerational judgments that I have accepted as true without ever really questioning them. WOW!

I have noticed that one of many attitudes we hold in judging others is that we measure what people have rather than by the quality of being that they are. The things we acquire are all well and good if we don’t use them to define who we are and certainly not to define others. Things of external value certainly cannot compete with a deep inner life of compassion, joy and richness. It is important to remember that not everyone lives by the same goals or aspirations, so the principle upon which we measure others is therefore faulty and rendered obsolete.

In some way we are all drawn to glamour, money & power. We want to rub shoulders with the “elite’ as if by osmosis, we too, will become rich and powerful. Funny thing is that rich & powerful does not necessarily connote interpersonal development, but rather organizational methods to produce wealth. In addition, those who have a well cultivated inner life also attained from organizational methods to produce enlightenment, do not always reflect an equal monetary measurement of their inner development. I find the imbalance between both the inner and outer life, of synthesis, to be a crisis of our times where inner hard work is not adequately manifested into the outer material world in a viable energy exchange. I find that an integral life must be committed to the integration of higher consciousness with financial wellbeing. The marriage between the two, no doubt will cause us to feel empowered in all areas of living and fill us with joy to pay it forward.

The goal is ever to ground Spirit into matter and to dissolve the emotional charges that keep us limited in a particular spectrum of consciousness. Holding judgment is reflected not only in our attitudes that keep the authentic self shrouded from view, but from fully being present in our bodies. Our filters of misperception and of our dis-connect selves provide the foundation for dis-ease. So, we must look not only to how flexible our minds and bodies are, but to how flexible we are in our hearts to withhold judgment; let go of control; exercise our capacity to forgive; and how broadly we are able to receive and give love. A loving, open, and flexible heart is the key and doorway to a vibrant life of total wellness aligned in Divine Love.

Keeping ourselves in check to judgment is a purposeful step in the expression of right human relations.
