What often frustrates and derails the spiritual student is the quandary of how to live all the things learned along the path. The purpose of this blog is not to ask anyone to change a belief but to help those who are intent in their pursuit of living in alignment with their beliefs to put those ideals into their real lives.

MOVEMENT IN THE FORCE
NOTES – PERSONAL AND CAUTIONARY:
Personal:I call myself a Life “Guide” not “Coach” for
a reason.I see myself like a guide one
might hire to take on a trek in Tibet or a safari in Africa.Someone who knows the terrain and can help
you have your journey at the optimum level.That being said, I am always somewhat hesitant to write about subjects
such as today’s topic as there is a fine line between “informing” and “planting
a thought”.However, I made a commitment
2 years ago in Don’s recovery room, and it is my intention to honor that
commitment however personally uncomfortable it may sometimes be.
Cautionary:If you have NOT had any of the experiences described
below, PLEASE do NOT assign any
meaning to it and do NOT use it as any self judgment.You may have had some different experience or
your experience may be yet to come.I
only offer the following in the sense that it what a guide would do.
MOVEMENT IN THE FORCE
Apparently there was a huge
download of energy last weekend.(You
can research it for yourself, or, if you happen to be lucky enough to know
friend Fran [a beautiful being who’s dedicated her life to spreading the
information of the light] you can waylay her and she can fill you in.)
There have been many reports
of responses to this energy surge.Some
have reported melancholy, deep depression, heart palpitations, horrendous
headaches, light-headedness, vertigo and one reported what was called an “Incredible
Hulk”-like rage.Fran, Don and I all
experienced violent vomiting.Don had no
fever but a lot of body aches.I had
intense fever and diarrhea as well.Fortunately, this seems to last only about 16-20 hours, after which the
body will need some time to adjust.
During my experience of this
energy integration I had several experiences which I would like to share as
they came in moments of great clarity.
·It was EXTREMELY clear that it was IMPERATIVE
that one does not label the experience.Please refrain from using words like “flu”, “sick”, “depressed” or any
other 3rd dimensional labeling system.For one thing, you don’t want to bring any ancillary
symptoms from whatever you have named your experience.Trust me, whatever you experience will be
enough.If you must talk about it just
call it “movement in the body”.
·I was astounded
to see how incredibly invested the ego is in the drama of “being sick”/”being
out of sorts”, and how very much it wanted to play the “poor pitiful me”
card.At one point I realized that
staying ahead of the ego’s need for the drama was harder “work” than trying to
keep water down.(Now that’s sick J.)
·Even though the
body was going through its rigors I was
not.I realized it was important for me
to maintain clarity about that difference.Don and I did 2 things to help with this:(1) we used humor as much as possible, i.e. “helluva’
way to lose weight”, and (2) we spoke words of gratitude and love as much as
possible, i.e. “I’m so grateful we both didn’t go down at the same time and we
are here to support each other”.
·I was told during
Don’s episode to view this as an “initiation” of sorts and to honor the event
as a rite of passage.I honestly believe
that it is important to stay in an attitude of “I allow” and to be as present
as possible.Put aside worries about
what isn’t getting done while you are in the throes of your experience so that
you can become aligned with the process.
·I found it
appropriate to invoke the prayer “Ho-oponopono” on several occasions as part of
integrating new energies is releasing old energies.
·I had one of
those experiences where a montage of images flashed before me for about 2
hours.It is quite clear that the
construct and context of our lives is changing rapidly and it would be wise to
become as adaptable as possible.
After the 16-20 hours both of
us experienced a sense of “not really being here” as if we were out of sync
with things.It took a couple of days
for equilibrium to return.Even now we
are moving at “slow motion”.
BTW, the person with the “Hulk”-like
rage almost caused a car accident and as terrible as that may seem they “saw”
in that instant what anger can do and have now made the conscious decision to
remove it from their life.
Whatever your experience of
the “new energies” may be, it behooves you to not label/limit it to any
previous understanding.All that is new
and wonderful is eagerly awaiting access to you, your consciousness and your
life.Open the doors of your heart and
life as wide as you can and let the light shine in.
