JOURNEY AND PROCESS OF STAYING ON THE PATH OF ENLIGHTENED PURPOSE

 

In the last blog, I wrote about the purpose of enlightenment. Enlightenment or awakening is really the Purpose of all the lives of humans. All humans get a choice, however. Some choose the life of finding new life and truth and others choose to stay in the dark, half in the dark and half out, or pretend they are in the light. I will talk about how to discern between those states of human beings.

 First, I need to connect the dots from the past blogs. They have all been built around a theme of awakening to your inner self. This is the Seeker part I wrote about last time. You have been seeking that inner self from the beginning, even before it was so contaminated and influenced by the poisons of others and the toxins of this planet. Finding the child within helps because you can remember what it was like to be free( if you had a decent childhood). If you had a traumatic or toxic childhood, you may not want to remember how awful it was, or you want to admire how awful it was. Either of those extremes can keep you stuck and unable to see your light within.

 Getting unstuck is part of the Journey or Process. You process out the old and your perspectives around them while making new perceptions in the present. This is seeking and finding answers and understanding. It is Enlightenment. You are hearing and seeing things in new ways that will develop a new life within you. This is the Process of Being Raised Up all over again by a New Lover. This Lover is really an Old Lover. The Being we call God knows you intimately and loves you anyway!!!!

It is the One WHO is all loving and created you in the beginning.

 Landing on this planet can do a lot of damage in many ways. No one escapes death and no one escapes some form of dis-ease. No one feels like they really belong or fit in. Those who do or look like they do are either in full-blown denial or are pretending and living under the influence of false-hoods. Living in truth and honesty is often painful and requires great courage. It is not a life for sissies. The courage and faith to do it comes from God Alone. No human can manage in a healed way apart from God’s help.The treatment needed is how to love yourself well from new perspectives that do come from God and a Higher Perspective.

 The Purpose of the deeper Process of Enlightenment Pays off big time. It is greater than winning any lottery. It means you get peace, a peace that passes understanding and you can pass that on to others. If humans could collectively operate within this Seeking of Enlightenment realm, many wars and rumors of them would cease. It would mean that as Civilized Beings, we understand that all life is precious and we would desire to pass along the bread of Life and the wellspring of healing we have found. This is the sole purpose of my enlightenment. I desire to leave a better legacy to my children and those of all generations than were left to me. I know it is true and can be found if you are seeking it above all else.

 

PROCESS, PROCESS, DIG DEEPER WITHIN AND FIND THE POWER OF DIVINE LOVE

ENLIGHTENMENT: WHAT IS ITS TRUE PURPOSE?

As a therapist, my work with helping others is really the Journey to Enlighten them about

how they are thinking and how to heal the past influences that have hurt them.

Many people choose not to wake up to those painful memories. Many would rather avoid the memories, suppress them or run away from them.

Those that do choose to “wake up” and let the light of their present reality enlighten their circumstances are often referred to as “Seekers.” So, what are they seeking and why are they seeking while many others choose to remain in denial or a hypnotic trance full of false beliefs about themselves and others??

Great question! Seekers are looking for truth and justice. True seekers will find it as they are looking into themselves and to a power greater than themselves in the spiritual realm to help them understand all the injustice and suffering in the world. Some seekers will only journey so deep into the pain and be done with it. They can’t stand to look at the truth that they, themselves, have a dark pit inside their being.

People with shallow (or selfish), intentions know they have been victimized, but they cannot get past the pain of that so they excuse their own offenses through the filter of a victim. They have been persecuted and therefore, need a rescuer. Mostly, they will choose other people to rescue and save them and protect them. This also means they will victimize their rescuers in some way due to the Law of Sowing and Reaping. Even if they do choose to believe in a Higher Power that is in Spirit Form, they cannot understand or relate to the Love from this Power. Therefore, the healing they are seeking cannot be received fully and they wander back and forth, still caught up in fear and doubt. Fear and Doubt always carry attachments of Negative Control over others!

 True Seekers are not looking for a “fix.” They want the Real Power to become Real Healing within and to be able to sense it deeply. They also want this healing for everyone else, but do not seek to force it on anyone. This is seeking the Kingdom of God within and letting that Love and Omniscience take over a human’s being and become the Power that human constantly and continuously depends upon for everything. Of course, humans are still important for relationship and other needs, but God is the ONE that is worshiped and the relationship with His Holy Spirit Power is growing and developing deeper roots that overcome the poisonous positions of the past.

As a Seeker of Enlightenment, you must accept the cost of the Journey. It is freedom within your soul. It is often lonely or carries a feeling of loneliness because so few understand this process and how the journey unfolds. Many teachers and especially, those with false understandings will only be able to lead so far. The road with them ends, and then what? There is never an ending that does not present a beginning with it.

The seeking must never stop as its Influencer and Leader is God. The power of a Spirit that is alive in you and loves you deeply can be known deeper and more deeply over the course of your life. That is the Path you are on. It is Gentle and Gradual, but the Enlightenment it brings is for your good and for the good of all. It will call you to Higher Levels of understanding and the call to share this with all other true Seekers. Do not fear that spotlight. You are enlightened by a Higher Light.

Keep Seeking the Light! Never give up Hope that Light of Truth is leading you!

SPIRITUAL WORK CAN BE ARDUOUS WORK AND VERY INTENSE

Like other intensive pursuits, spiritual awakening and climbing higher in your own consciousness of the Higher Power can be very hard work. It does require special tools like focus, intentionality, and unfailing concentration on a Source Greater than you. It is challenging not to be attracted to the same old ways of handling things. I have seen many people in therapy grapple with letting go of the old things that once attracted them to grab hold of the new life of peace and joy.

 It can feel as though there is nothing but a black hole one might fall into or a giant abyss from which there is no return. Actually, once you continue to trust the process, it is quite the opposite. The old ways seem counter-intuitive and the new ways begin to feel “right” and comfortable and known. Initially, however, that is not the case. Avoidance of attachment to old security systems like sex and money or relationships are still there, but they do not hold the power to force you into behaving in old patterns as they once did. It takes time and process over and over. The process is to keep turning things over to the Higher Power of Love and this will cause new ways of thinking that are much wiser and do not contain so much fear and the “perceived” need to control.

Of course, there is no arrival or destination at some Spiritual Station that is constant so that can also feel like hard work. Letting go of the fear or desire to arrive is the best way to handle this problem. Understanding that you are developing new muscles within and that the exercise is just like in the physical realm. You have to work it out. Soon, you will notice the toning process and will tune in and attach more to it than the old influences. You just have to begin to trust yourself to this process and keep letting go of the past.

 The process referred to as Enlightenment is part of this Journey. You do actually feel lighter, but you also have new perspectives on situations that give you opportunities to make new perceptions out of those perspectives. Of course, this gives more options and a feeling of ease. There is less resistance from resentment, spite, envy, jealousy, and other old negative behaviors. They will still try to invade, but you are aware not to let them in and settle matters that bother you more quickly.

Life becomes more at ease in general and less “dis-ease” is felt both emotionally and physically. Maintaining those old defenses and the need to offend is actually very hard on the brain and central nervous system and alters everything, leaving one feeling confused, disordered and overwhelmed.

The new way feels more peaceful even when things aren’t working out situationally as well as you might desire. Be patient with the Process. There is a purpose in this “working out” and it brings your inner being to Higher Levels slowly so you can handle the new ways. The best tools are staying stable and grounded in self, not letting others force you to lose balance and to stay encouraged and hopeful. If there is a downslide or even, a backslide, get right back up, and reground. Keep the feeling of liberated empowerment flowing in connection to a personal relationship to an all loving High Power that is helping you and has it all covered.

Trust that you are being led!

CHOOSING A PATH OF NEW LIFE THAT KEEPS ELEVATING CONSCIOUSNESS

I have been writing about awakening and awareness all this year in my blogs. Much of the writing has been about keeping conscious awareness growing and developing to higher levels while cleaning and clearing the lower levels of past hurts, habits, and hang ups. Last time, I wrote that processing all of this demands a spiritual component. The reasoning for this is because it is a spiritual process.

Lasting change in behavior, thinking and emotional wellness in all relationships is impossible to control using human force or controlling oneself in that way. Everlasting joy and a feeling of being loved requires a Higher Power to provide resolution and peace in order to move forward and higher within oneself. Staying caught in past traps and hang-ups from the past will keep old habits and inhabitations a place to dwell. Offering space to old toxic ways of the past invites staying stuck at lower levels.

Offering your inner self up to a Higher Power to control says that you need help and you are willing to trust in a Source you cannot physically see, but you know exists. Being able to connect your inner spirit with this Higher Being that is all loving and all knowing is impossible with old defense mechanisms in place. They trigger the ego to jump in and take control usually through fear, obligation or guilt coming from old automatic negative thinking patterns.

Once you can gain stability and see through these defenses and begin to receive the love from above to connect with your inner loving self, you can “feel the difference” in empowerment. Your reality matters and you begin to operate from inside out more than letting life come at you or external forces dictate your next move. You feel good about yourself and know that some Guide is helping you. The Super Highway you have begun to travel on may feel shaky and narrow as it is less traveled than most other pathways you have been on.

The good news, however, is that you are enjoying where it takes you more than the old feelings of being “lost” or lonely all the time (even when others are around). Be intentionally looking for this path and choose it over and over, even if others are opposing the changes you are noticing within yourself. Never choose pleasing others over staying true and honest to self, if possible. Be gentle with yourself, however, as it will feel like you may fall down or be left if you don’t give in to old ways. THIS is just a feeling and it will pass. This is just leaving familiar lands of what most of us are programmed to do prior to awakening, which is being “used to” rejecting self, and abandoning self and tending to others needs (and often, resenting doing that).

Practice staying tuned to that inner loving voice because it IS REAL and is coming from the Spiritual Realm that is connecting with your inner spiritual being.

KEEPING THE INNER PROCESS MOVING IN PRESENT SITUATIONS

All the work that is done to FLUSH out the old wounds and pain of the past is a lifetime process. As AWARENESS continues to be your life theme, you will want to stay present with more joy than sadness and loss. When a person has done a lot of healing work and is not experiencing a balance in joy combined with past pain, it is because there is always more to process.

We never end the need to grow and develop our AWAKENING. Staying AWARE of the inner being is easier to maintain, but it takes more than maintenance to protect sanity and not fall back into anxiety and depression behaviors. Intentionally seeking Higher Power of Spirit realms and letting joy enter all situations is challenging, but possible.

Remember, all things first begin in the mind. It is how YOU THINK about something that gives it meaning. For example, if I focus on a task or a circumstance as awful or negative, that just means, I am in a past way of thinking. I have an immediate choice to contemplate what that means to me. Once I intentionally, choose to mull it over and try to think in new ways, I am on a Higher Path to resolving the problem.

Process just means taking the time to think about how to reshape the negative thoughts into allowing other options, ones that can turn the present situation into joy. I know this is complex and the more painful the situation or task, the more need to spend time in prayer, contemplation, and writing in a journal about the way you want it to turn out.

 

Process always needs a spiritual component or it will not last. The only way to have everlasting joy and peace is to combine with Something Greater than your human self. You will always be at risk to lapse back into old ways of operating without this Higher System of Guidance. It is similar to finding your way around a strange place in the physical realm without a map or GPS or some way of navigating new territory.

 We are not trained to do this in our first development as humans. We are too busy just surviving growing up and sometimes that is all a child can handle. Even in the best of childhood situations, however, parents still do not understand the child in the ways God as Creator and Designer of us as humans can. This is why connecting with the Source is the way to freedom. The Master Plan is unknown to you, your parents, your teachers, your supervisors and all humans who interact with you. It is not unknown to the Higher Power or I should say, “HIGHEST POWER” that is omniscient and omnipresent to ALL Knowing!

Tap into the Process of Relating to the Higher Power and let that developmental way of life lead and guide you with the faith that it WILL continuously keep processing the old, the present while taking you to new levels of understanding and consciousness.

More information on what this feels like coming in the next few blogs:)

ENLARGE YOUR INNER TERRITORY TO BUILD A ROOMIER INNER HOUSE

How is your Building Project coming along? I hope it is going well. I know you are still aware to new changes within and want to add more rooms and clear out more of the old junky rooms. Well, give yourself permission to “go for it!”

 Continuing of the pathways of expanding your inner self to be a building you enjoy being in will require constant upkeep. This just means staying intentional about what you desire to build, listening to your thoughts over what others are telling you (there will be opposition to your changes from those close to you as it will require them to adjust or resist your changes because “they” do not want changes). Try to just shift into neutral when that happens or kindly let them know you are going forward with the rebuilding:)

 Keep your environment clean inside by tidying up daily anger or any things that bother you.

Do the work to resolve them quickly so they do not BUILD resentment walls that you do not need or want. You want fences with gates, not walls. Negative thoughts and unresolved anger or bitterness creates walls and matters of a positive nature or supernatural guidance do not typically force down walls you put up.

They can, but you want to remain freely flowing from inner room to inner room.

 Continue to decorate your thoughts with focus on all that is pure and lovely and kind in your treatment of self and others. Keep dreaming your vision of new ways to be, both in relationships and in projects and things you want to do now that you are not drained by other draining behaviors.

 Enlarging your inner territory just means that you are expanding awareness to rise higher in aspirations and goals, not that you have to WORK or FORCE any of this harder, but that you are “allowing” new things to come your way that are good and positive. You continue to roll out the welcome mat for all that is abundant and opulent, not in  a greedy way, but in an assertive and confident way.

All of this environment that you are creating within will find a match in your external world and will reflect what is going on within you. Meditate on your new empowerment and feel the enlightenment of that inner power. If others try to tear you down or treat you poorly, choose to let them know how you like to be treated in a loving way and also treat yourself (and them) the same way. Things are aligning and more territory is being added that is edifying to you. It feels good and free to be you.

 The past experiences are not so hurtful and almost feel healed completely. There is a continued sense of inner peace coupled with the idea that something bigger is headed your way…because IT IS! Let no doubt or fear enter your new land. Stay guarded in mind, body and spirit.

You are full responsible for you along with the Divine Awareness that you are not alone in this building!

SURROUND SOUND IN YOUR OPULENT INNER ENVIRONMENT BUILDING PROJECT

Last time, I introduced the idea of building a new and more updated inner environment for your inner being. Continuing in that same thinking and planning, I encourage you to put in a new sound system. This is actually one of the most important steps you will ever take in co-creating the new life you desire. (By co-creating, I just mean you are working within your own self being along with a partner people either refer to as Spirit, Holy Spirit, God or even Higher Power-whatever way you begin to partner with God, you are bringing in Divine help and awareness that this Power is spiritual and does have your best interest at heart).

If you align with an all loving and unconditional Partner in VOICE, you are going to begin to hear more positive truths about yourself that Guide and Direct you in more positive ways. God speaks in Loving Tones and is gentle and kind. There will be disciplined reminders if you get off balance, but the sound is not harsh and angry or critical like some people teach. God does get angry and can deal strongly with people, but that is not the Voice you need to begin with as a Seeker of how to hear from God.

 Surround yourself with loving thoughts about yourself and others. The sounds match the beauty of a sunset or a fine orchestra playing a symphony. The music is sweet and harmonious. This is the tone to set for your inner voice. Kind thoughts, patient words, and pure gratitude is needed to know and hear that you are working positively to get in touch with the desires of your heart and soul. Taking this course of action promotes a lighter spirit and brings in light and hope. It is uplifting and edifying. Now, you begin to build a higher opinion of others and yourself. You feel more joy, even though circumstances have not changed all that much.

 Somehow, you know the external world is answering to the voice you have inside. You begin to hear things you have already thought about. Or, you may hear a message that confirms something you were wondering about. This kind of synchronistic balance is something you will notice and like. It brings in peace and an inner sense that all is right inside, unlike the old “noise” inside your head of the past. (old noise is chaotic, obsessive, complaining, and just creates a sense of anxiousness)

 Begin this practice of wrapping your inner voice around the Surround Sound of constant love, kind, gentle treatment in mind, body and spirit. Let yourself add in the dreams and desires you have already begin to hope for and think about. Keep treating yourself to new ways of doing things, trying new food, finding ways to share openly with others your new processes and any other things you generate that build on what you are hoping to produce inside yourself.

Begin to “feel” the difference.

BUILDING AN OPULENT ENVIRONMENT WITHIN

So much of what I have been blogging about for understanding of the Awakening process involves new construction. Most of humanity does not consider their inner being a building, but think about it this way: inside each one of us is an amazing network of floors and connected rooms. As I have written in the past blogs, most of us just keep filling those rooms with thoughts that dis-ease us in some way.

 All stress is capable of causing or adding to disease, whether the “dis” ease is mental, physical, emotional, spiritual or all of the above. I have stated over and over that the place all distress begins is in the mind and how a person thinks about anything. If the thinking is mostly negative, the person operates in that paradigm and gets bogged down because negative thinking about everything is depressing.

 My last few blogs have been about clearing out most of the negative rooms of the junk thoughts and the losses that caused that junky thinking. Updating with gratitude to stay focused more in the present is the antidote once one clears out the negatives of the past. As for present negative circumstances, I encouraged the reader to focus more on gratitude and rule out negative or “downer” thoughts as much as possible and to really LISTEN for those automatic negative thoughts so they could be replaced with positive ways to view problems.

 Continuing on from keeping things in the present and positively focused mainly requires intention and willingness to believe you can live differently. This is where you need to consider building an opulent inner world of thinking and emotional self care. Opulent thinking and feeling about yourself means to consider your inner self to be amazing and magnificent, like a beautiful building. Begin to speak kindly to yourself and rule out “guilting or shaming” thoughts that contain words like “Should or shouldn’t” or “I’m so stupid” or “I can never get it right.” That kind of thinking treats you to a no good feeling about yourself and it will rub off as to how you see others (better than me, less than me).

 Begin to dream how you really are made to be. Begin to live a life as close to what you would like and can afford in the present. If you have old or worn out things, get rid of them. If you have “always done things a certain way,” try something different. Allow yourself to think a little higher about how to take care of yourself. Stay in balance, but splurge on something you would not have gotten before or do something nice just for you.

This new opulent way of thinking about yourself is going to give you ample hope and inner encouragement to begin to take some steps to go higher in your vision. If you have always wanted to do something, begin to think about it, plan it, tell someone else about it in a sharing way. Set some goals on how you are going to build your inner belief system to match what you want to see happen in the outer world. This is Inner Building 101.

In other words, this is a new course about you.

RETAINING AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE WHILE TREATING OLD LOSSES/GRIEF

You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration”

James Allen

 I use this quote by James Allen to open today’s blog because it is so true, and of course, because it is so profound. Think about what the term “controlling desire” really means. When you have a controlling desire that is limited to size, you will be inclined to want things that are small and can be determined to fit according to that size. Dominant aspiration is an influence that suggests a will to succeed in all of your ambitions and cherished desires. Therefore, the greater those are, the higher you will succeed as you focus on the ability to realize any of inclinations. The focus and willingness combined with desire to climb higher will inspire a person to aspire &”GO HIGHER!”

Many people cannot imagine a higher vision of their desires for a number of reasons. Most often, it is due to their own limiting beliefs in themselves. That root is often traceable back to a voice of authority (from childhood) over-riding their own inner truths. It can also come from living with a person (s) as an adult that keeps putting down your dreams and desires. No other human has a right to oppress desire, but if a person believes they do (and gives them power to allow it), then it might as well be true.

Desires come from within a person and are usually God-given in the beginning. They will get distorted over time if too much control or force is exerted to and that person fills with resentment that pulls them into selfishness. In balance, however, desires emanate from gifts and talents that are unique to the individual. I see many of my clients limiting their desires because they have false beliefs that they are impossible desires to have. This is the small control James Allen is referring to, but aspiring to bring a desire into reality will almost always draw the manifestation of it eventually.

So, start with your attitude of gratitude for all your blessings. Add on more of that gratitude (as much as you can hold) and focus on your aspirations. In order to make more room and gain altitude for higher visions of your desires, you will need to clear out old rooms full of useless baggage. These are the losses and sad times when others criticized, found fault, shamed, blamed or negatively influenced you to “think” you were crazy to have dreams or desires. Many times, those people were parents and teachers (or even, lovers) who were undermining your very faith in yourself and trust that you were being called to go higher. This is sad, and it is loss, but it can be overcome and treated.

The first line of treatment is to go back into the past and uncover the naysayers or the critical people who tried to stop you or hold you down (oppression and depression combine to cause feelings of helplessness over the situation). Those people (even parents) may have “thought” they knew the truth about you, but they didn’t and couldn’t-only YOU are responsible for the truth about you at this point. If you have a desire and you aspire to turn it into a reality, together with your Higher Power, you can clear out the past negatives and put in present positives. Notice I said, “positives.”

Replacing negative controls of the past with negative controls (or controllers) in the present is a useless activity.

If you don’t plan to be your own cheerleader, please do not torture yourself any further. Just stay at the small or lower level until you can believe in yourself to go higher. Then, small step by small step, you can begin to imagine higher aspirations. It does take time to make the “climb” if you have a history of being “beaten down” in your spirit.

Be patient with yourself and nurture you nature as you treat the wounds of the past!

KEEPING THAT POSITION OF AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

Gratitude is defined as a feeling of thankfulness and appreciation, which indicates an ongoing state of being. It is not a feeling of STUCK or anything that is fixed. Rather, it is a flowing of feelings that keeps going and moving.

This requires what I refer to as:

“E” Motion or energy in motion. It does take development and fluidity and practice.

 Many people are stuck in negative emotional or arrested development of past times when they were hurt or did not get what they had hoped. When any human just moves on time and time again, without processing the raw emotions out of the situation, the emotional energy gets locked in with the feeling of “that” time. This is obviously always about the “past” and yet, when that same feeling comes up in the present, the unresolved feeling of a similar past memory will get triggered and it all comes flooding into the present. This is evidenced when people cry or are in grief over something that seems quite insignificant in the present. Or, a person will over-react with huge anger or rage over some disrespect or hurt from another (oftentimes, the other had no intention of hurting or poking to cause an angry response).

This trapped negative well of unresolved feelings is covered over with many defenses that serve as survival mechanisms. There are many of them that we all have used over and over again. They are all food for negative and critical thinking which is most of what admiring awful things over good things is all about. Over time, more negative thoughts are trapped and cannot get out without feeling them. As I have written before, people are either unaware of the pain and hurt feelings they do have trapped inside or they choose to ignore or avoid them. Either way, they are still there waiting to take over. When any small negative word or behavior is experienced, up it comes!  The current negative criticism and the past ones work together in some kind of defensive posture.

 Most people have no idea how much shame and criticism they have felt year after year. The longer the situation goes untreated, the more depressing feelings are buried. Many people actually swing these moods themselves through addictions or talking themselves out of feeling the loss through some busy activity. The result of this pendulum swinging is very damaging over time. It is also impossible for that kind of moody person to have an attitude of gratitude for longer than a day or two. Something will always drag them back into a pit of despair. I have seen this over and over even with people who have so much to be thankful for (their negative moods take them down and override any gratitude).

 The motion of gratitude is uplifting, but in order to keep it flowing and growing, it must be mixed with the following: spirituality (not religion), physical activity and positive relationships. Along with those three things, keeping a daily journal of things that are bothersome and how one feels about them will help form new ways of being able to stay in a state of being positioned for gratitude. It also allows the “stuck stuff” to start moving as it is broken down into chunks rather than heavy boulders impossible to push out.  Taking these small steps in the direction of the positive position gives hope, which also adds to the motion of the energy.

 

For more on dealing with old untreated losses that have built up over time, check in to my next blog:)
