Thoughts and emotions have a certain energy about them, a moving energy that comes and goes like waves on the surface of the ocean. Some are lighter in nature, almost benign, while others are darker and heavier. Fear for example, is vibrationally dense and with our added attention to it, it can escalate and become a feeling of dread. These negative feelings are usually projections and or reactions to the outside world. In other words, when we’re experiencing these lower frequencies, we’re living from the outside in; our human conditioning is such that it looks to the outside world to tell us how we should feel inside.
Waiting for circumstances to change, for the world to change before we can feel good or come into peace will have us waiting eternally. Things in the outer world only begin to shift when we make the conscious decision to change our perceptions, our point of view. A complete reversal, living from the inside out aligns us with our inner being, our awareness, allowing for the experience of inner peace.
Inner peace has nothing to do with the outside world because it’s a reflection of one’s inner being. And our inner being in essence, is freedom, is non-attached to anything of this world. And that’s because it’s not of this world, it comes from another realm, from a higher dimension. The accumulation of wealth, the attainment of material success may provide temporary feelings of security and a sense of peace, but any feeling that is attached to the external is always at risk of being lost. Asking ourselves this question should bring an immediate answer: what would happen to one’s feeling of security or peace if those material things were suddenly gone?
The peace of being is a transcendent experience. Rooted in faith, trust and understanding, in ourselves and Source Energy, inner peace is not moved by outer circumstances or changes in them. It’s knowing that everything’s always working out. It’s trusting in a future because Source is already there. It’s the understanding that life is actually for us, not against us. And it’s the faith that what our heart desires is what Source desires for us.
A centered way of being, inner peace looks within and without through the vibrational frequency of inner stillness. Looking through the eyes of Source, one sees through clarity. A profound feeling of safety accompanies inner peace as one is unified consciously with universal consciousness, understanding that one is cared for and loved unconditionally. In the space of peace, the thinking mind is quieted, silenced, which reveals one’s true essence. Peace is what we are by nature and any experience that offers us anything but peace is only occurring because we’ve come out of alignment, spiritually speaking.
A shift in awareness, from the ego, the surface of the mind, to the soul, our deeper essence, inner peace is readily available to all who desire it. The process begins with the laying aside of the things, the emotions that no longer serve us like fear or anger. That doesn’t mean that one will stop experiencing these emotions, it’s not about suppressing anything; rather it’s about observing the emotions as they present themselves rather than feeding them through reaction. In the presence of who we are, when we’re centred, unconditional love is more than capable of consuming any and all negative energies, including fear.
A liberating way of being, inner peace is personal freedom. It’s freedom from the past, and the worry of the future. And that’s because inner peace is rooted in the present. It’s a vibrational frequency that is higher dimensional, and not of this world.
Letting Go of The Old To Come Into The New
There’s a lot happening in the world right now on many levels. It’s almost as if the world is being divided; there are those who are waking up from the circumstances that have been created and there are those who are for one reason or another, staying asleep. For the ones who were already on the spiritual path, or seeking inner change, these current challenges are offering them the fuel needed for a shift in consciousness. And for those more 3D focused, well, they are just wanting their life back and are more than happy to do just about anything to get it back.
The purpose of this article is not to point fingers, but to reveal what’s happening and what’s probably already obvious to many. Those who created this chaos, have no intention whatsoever of ever giving back the life we knew. But let’s look at this from a higher perspective and the possibilities that can come from all this. The world as it was, was in essence, too moved away from spirituality, and by that, I mean direct experience with who we are beyond the physical body and the thinking mind or ego. Something was missing and it was the experience of oneness that takes place by being in alignment with our soul, with Source Energy. And by being off track as a collective, the majority being in that dreaming state of thought, we needed a major wake-up call, an event to shake up humanity, and that took place in 2020 as we all know.
Those who are awakening and who are awake, know that and are either in the process of or have already let go of the life that was. If one looks at what was happening honestly, one can see that the life many of us were living and experiencing was too focussed on the outside world, attainment and materiality. It was a shadow of the spiritual-fulfilling life that was intended for us to experience. Life is all about balance, and there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the things of this life, but if all or most of one’s happiness was in doing, and not being, well, that’s imbalance. Understandably, this article may trigger some unresolved aspect in some, and that’s not the intention. The intention is the awareness that humanity had moved too far from who we really are and as a collective, needed something to have us stop and look what was happening and missing.
For many, a grieving process is taking place, over the life we knew before and that’s very much understandable. But know that the universe is not punishing us for getting off course, everything in fact, is happening right on schedule. There is a synchronicity to everything, and it’s this moment, the present, where we can change focus, let go of the past as to create and allow something new, something even better, a new world, one that is based in oneness and the freedom to create consciously.
Remaining in the holding pattern of focusing on the past, can make us feel stuck; it can bog down our energy field. It can lower our vibrational frequency and lead to heavy emotions, even depression. But know that one doesn’t have to remain in that space; you can shift out of the past and into the present. If the present is too hard to face, that’s a sign that there’s inner work to do. Because the truth is, the past is a mind construct, keeping us in the dreaming state, while the present is reality, it’s the here and now where life is, where life is always unfolding. The present for many can be difficult right now, but it’s also where the most change can take place within and without.
The universe has always been speaking to us, and it’s speaking to us right now. The challenges laid before us are to awaken us, to have us seek something larger than ourselves. Humanity has an opportunity right now, to usher in a new earth, one of peace, harmony and unity; and it all begins with each and every one of us.
The Inner Experience of Freedom
Freedom comes in many forms. There’s financial freedom, the freedom to make decisions and the freedom to express oneself for example. At the core of every human being is a space, an awareness of complete and total freedom, one that is transcendent of this world, of circumstances. This freedom is a reflection of one’s inner being and is remembered in the state of enlightenment. It’s an energetic freedom, one that is free of fear, worry and what others think of you. Tied to nothing, this spiritual freedom once realized, is what will free one’s mind from the conditioning of the ego.
Universally based, inner freedom is multidimensional as one connects with their own multidimensionality. One that opens the inner portal, this fearless-based freedom brings the awareness of the one Self that is expressing itself in countless ways, and allows for the ability, the freed awareness to discern and connect with higher dimensional beings. In essence, inner freedom unlocks the door to greater awareness, to cosmic consciousness.
Awareness and inner freedom are one and the same. With awareness one is free from the negativity, the past and future repetitive cycle that the egoic mind offers. Freedom is the expression of awareness, of enlightenment; a reflection of the highest self. It’s one that is unaffected by external pressures; listening only to the inner guidance of the Self. Beyond all fear, freedom becomes spontaneous as one’s own previous limitations are laid aside.
How one begins to realize this other worldly freedom starts by being, not doing. It’s inner action, it’s energy work, it’s a process of shifting past one’s conditioning into that no-state, pure beingness-inner stillness. The present is the moment, it’s the emotional elevator that elevates us past the veil of the ego and into the dimension of the Self, the quantum field where freedom reigns. No one can give you this freedom nor can it be taken away, an inner experience, it is beyond the grasp of all that is external.
Pure awareness in essence, inner freedom flows from the Self, the universal mind, to the conscious self. Uncontrollable in every way, spiritual freedom is the transcendence of the physical and the egoic nature, understanding no limitations whatsoever. An expression of unconditional love, it seeks never to control but rather continuously extends itself, from the center of oneself out into the world and beyond. A multidimensional aspect of the One Self, it’s the universal language of the soul.
Let’s take a look at some insights, some reminders that point you inward, into the freedom that is not only a potential but a possibility to be experienced and expressed through greater awareness and understanding:
- Inner freedom has no attachments to this world; a direct experience with the Self, it’s a multidimensional experience of all that you really are.
- This freedom is remembered, beyond all thought, it’s a vibrational frequency, an awareness that one is not a physical body or an ego but the one Self temporarily experiencing those gifts of contrast.
- The doorway to true freedom is the now, the present moment. Lifting us beyond the maze of past and future, one escapes the freedom offered by the conditioned mind which is limited.
- Freedom can begin with forgiveness as it releases us, undoes the past, and unbinds us from lower energetic frequencies that bind us.
- Being centered, in mind, body and spirit allows the soul to permeate one’s consciousness and every cell of the physical, reminding us of our true spiritual heritage and the truth of who we really are-an expression of divine freedom.
Inner freedom is clarity. It’s knowing who you are on a soul level. A recognition of the Infinite within, inner freedom is our ally and friend ready to show us the way out from within.
Finding Your Self In The Storm
The topic of change, personal change is an interesting thing. When we’re comfortable, when there is no perceived threat, as human beings, we’re just fine with the way things are. The human condition, our human conditioning, is such that it doesn’t want to step outside of what is known. The ego, which represents the human condition, likes its bubble, because that’s where it can perpetuate itself, where it can thrive. Another thing about the human condition is that it doesn’t like to experience pain, and will do whatever is needed, to avoid it. But here’s the thing about that; growth, personal growth, doesn’t happen when we’re comfortable. Growth takes place, the maturing into spirit, when we’re tested, when we’re placed in circumstances that seem to be beyond our control.
When we’re in a holding pattern, such as continually operating between the past and future for example, our energies become stagnant; there is no flow. Habits and behaviours, good or bad, are the result of repetition, it’s what we choose to do and be on a daily basis. Becoming aware of what’s truly serving us and what’s not can set the stage for the beginning of personal growth; it’s a proactive way of moving upward and forward.
The ego is what it is; as a part of this experience, it gives us a sense of identity, a feeling of being an individual. But it also serves a divine purpose; being naturally negative in nature, relative to our conscious mind which is positive, the ego is, from a spiritual point of view, the necessary catalyst for ascension. When the ego is described as negative, it’s because it’s the source of fear and all the branching emotions that are projected from it; like anger, hate and jealousy.
As time passes, if left unchecked, the ego and its emotional pain that surrounds our physicality will continue to grow. The mind, is like everything in life, it seeks balance; and when our thoughts are tipped in a certain direction, life will provide us with wake-up calls, circumstances, to shake us up, wake us up from our slumber. Life doesn’t punish us, but rather it’s speaking to us; its messages start off as being subtle, but as they go unnoticed or unheeded, the messages get louder to get our attention.
What we’re currently experiencing in the collective consciousness, in the world today, is the result of what the egoic mind has become. On the surface there is chaos in the world; governments are overreaching and attempting to exert control over their populations, affecting virtually every aspect of the individual’s life. There is suffering on the planet most likely never seen before and it appears we are collectively in the middle of a storm.
What’s the purpose in all this? What does life want from us? The answer, if one has the willingness to listen and has an open mind, is simple. It’s time to grow. It’s time to make the shift and transcend fear, transcend the ego-the thinking mind. Because as you may have noticed, as the outer world has become more chaotic, so too has our fears. And at some point, the fear within is going to become unbearable. But there is a solution and it’s spiritual in nature.
It’s our belief in fear that has allowed it to become what it has on the collective stage. It’s the belief in separation, that we are separate from each other and from Source Energy that has put is where we are now. The solution is to go within; to make the conscious return to the safety and certainty of our Self. The present moment, this instant, is where we can reconnect with our highest aspect, pure awareness. It’s that inner re-alignment, become one with Source consciously, that will change the world. Finding the Self within, we become aware of the awareness that experiences thought. We become aware of the unchanging nature and strength of inner stillness that allows us the grace to face any adversity. Outer change starts within; the world will become something new when we are reborn in spirit.
