If we are looking for a place of focus to begin our path to healing or get to the root of a personal issue of vulnerability, we can choose to clear the causes and root sources of fear from our lives. Fear can live in our memories, in our day to day interactions, and through particular confrontations and triggers. Fears are often deeply embedded and hidden within our psyche, making them difficult to identify. Negative ego programs or our lower mental functioning, tell us that we need fear in order to survive or to keep us safe, but this is quite the opposite. The ego is not our true self and feeds us ideas of separation, judgmental attitudes, and dictates our activities with base uncontrolled emotional states and beliefs. When we are in these various states of unawareness, we are not in control of ourselves and allow these mental programs and external influences to take the wheel and run our lives.
Fears may be commonly and collectively shared, such as the fear of insects, rodents, and snakes and other predators or pests we share this planet with. Fear presents itself as perceived threats of survival- the idea that someone is threating our safety, our home, our material possessions, our loved ones, or our life. Fears can be completely illogical and manifest as phobias that may stem from a number of sources- including nightmares, childhood traumas, and collective subconscious programs. The most common fears stem from how we perceive and feel about ourselves- our self image, identity, and abilities; our learned beliefs; and our misunderstandings about the true nature of our spiritual energetic selves and our relationship to the greater whole.
When attempting to identify a fear or when confronted with a fearful thought or situation, apply logic and reason to the fear. Once you have identified the fear, acknowledge and accept it. Scientifically examine the fear and ask yourself these questions: Is this fear logical? Does this fear make sense? What it so important about this fear? What is this fear telling me about myself? Explore the fear without judgement. Be objective and attempt to understand the fear and try to determine where the fear is sourcing from. Does this fear hold any merit? How is this fear controlling you? Imagine what your life would be like if you were free of it. Be creative and imagine various ways you could go about freeing yourself from this particular fear. Resolve to set a goal to take action and steps towards eliminating the fear. It may require the help of a professional if you are experiencing a phobia that doesn’t seem to have any logical or identifiable source and it is debilitating and is too frightening to even think about resolving it on your own.
Generally our fears have to do with our sense of safety. When we feel unsafe, uncertain, or our wellbeing is threatened, we automatically play out fear. Fear of harm either physical or mental. We take measures to protect ourselves from these perceived or very real threats. Not only do we have mental ego processes that kick in during these confrontations, but there are also biological processes that take place that influence our behavioral reactions to these stressors. This is called fight or flight reaction. When experiencing extreme fear and trauma, adrenaline begins to pump through our bodies causing us to either freeze up and become immobile or pass out, flee the situation, become violent or fight either verbally or physically. These reactions prevent us from having the ability to think clearly and respond appropriately or in some cases prevent us from our personal safety. Although these biological reactions may be appropriate responses when our reasoning fails us, for example in order to help us deter a wild animal predator, they are not helpful to keep us safe in any situation where our wisdom, self awareness, and self control is required.
Anger may mask and play out as fear, especially when we are not in touch with our emotions and are not willing to or have not learned how to identify or examine the relationship between our emotional states and our behaviors. Much like the animal confronted in the wild or an injured pet snarling and baring it’s teeth, it’s actually their fear, not aggression that you are seeing. It’s a defense mechanism, the fight part of the fight or flight physiological response to the fearful confrontation. Often when we react angrily in a situation it is our ego acting out in fear in order to give us this false sense of safety, to protect ourselves from harm. Lashing out in an ego defense mechanism only causes more harm. When you find yourself in this situation, it is important to determine what you are afraid of and what the ego is trying so hard to hide or protect.
If left unchecked, the mind is a dangerous playground. If we are not in control of our mental and emotional states, we are placing our focus on non beneficial and generally harmful thoughts and our energies are expended on what is not in our best interest. I call these looping thought patterns of fear, the whatifs based on the Shel Silverstein poem called, “Whatif”. Whatifs are questions we ask ourselves that are the egos way of trying to prepare us for a challenge. If we are not clear with our thoughts and mental states this can run amok and backfire on us and turn into panic, anxiety, and paranoia. If we are placing all our thoughts and energies on what could possibly go wrong, we aren’t leaving any room for focusing on everything that can or could go right. A simple way to defuse this is to make lists and get what’s going on in your head in front of you so you can see what thoughts are playing in your mind. Another method is to address the fearful thought or emotion as if it were a person. Treat it respectfully, calmly, and objectively. Tell the thought, “no thank you” and refuse it access. Just as you’d set boundaries and assert yourself lovingly towards someone that is harming you with their behavior or attitude or pushing something on you that you do not want, tell the recurring fear thought, “no”. For example, a dialogue with this technique might go something like this: “I can see why you might think that, but it simply is not true. I am going to have to ask you to leave. You are not in charge here. I am in charge and I need you to sit down and hush. I understand what you’re trying to do, but it’s just not working for me. Thanks. I love you. Bye!”
Another technique I have used is an acronym to help remember the steps. It’s similar to the HALT method of self care awareness that helps you check in with your personal needs. When you feel yourself emotionally spiraling out of control, stop and ask yourself, “am I…Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired?” This is a quick check in to address the initial issues of your physical and emotional needs. When we are physically run down it’s much easier to fall into negative polarity states and succumb to what our uncontrolled thoughts are dictating. The acronym for this particular method I’ve come up with to help deal with confusing thoughts and emotional states is ODARN. Observe, Discern, Accept, Release, (apply)Neutrality. Similar to the scientific method of identifying a big interfering lifetime fear and addressing it, the ODARN method is for those small daily annoying harmful thought forms that act as pests and prevent us from thinking clearly, calmly, and truthfully from our heart space. The method doesn’t need to follow the order of steps in the acronym name, but whatever order works best in the situation. Although observation is generally the first step of checking in with our thoughts and feelings, neutrality may need to be applied first, to the situation or thought, in order to diffuse the intense emotions. Discern the what, where, and why of this thought or feeling. What am I feeling? Where is this thought or feeling coming from? Why am I thinking this or feeling this way? Accept that you have allowed yourself to experience a particular feeling you didn’t want to feel or any harmful thoughts, words, or actions that upset you. Forgive yourself, any others responsible, or the situation itself and then release it. Release anything you are still feeling that is leftover from that emotional state or event that took place.
Fear is used as a controller tactic and to hook people into addictive states of focus to sell TV air time and promote political agendas and strategies of domination and division. I am going to drop yet another acronym: FEAR- False, Evidence, Appearing, Real. This is the distraction technique of look here and pay no attention to the concerns and scenarios we should actually be made aware of and placing our energies towards solving. Fear is extremely disruptive and destructive and this is precisely why it is used to manipulate the opinions and belief systems of groups of people to suit the agendas of various controller groups. It’s extremely important for us to remain discerning and diligent of these tactics used by individuals and small and large groups that seek to oppress and dominate by preying on our existing fears and contriving methods of instilling fear in us.
When we are lacking in an emotional identification system and context of our emotional behaviors or emotional IQ, when we are not mindful of our inner dialogue and thought processes, when we have unhealed trauma and unidentified ego defense mechanisms, when we have low self worth and other false belief systems, we are inevitably going to have fear calling the shots in our lives. Overcoming fear is not an easy road. It takes deep and intense soul work. If we choose to take steps toward our freedom and sovereignty, then we must pursue this path to freedom by clearing our fears. We no longer need to be dominated and controlled by fear. We can resolve to get out of our own way and liberate ourselves from the frequency of fear that keeps us stuck in these cycles of mental bondage. Through our self discovery and mastery we can use the tools and techniques to help heal us and apply the wisdom of our inner knowingness and unconditional love in order to feel safe, to trust again, and to let go of our fears.
Do your best to replace all your fears with love,
Trust in life’s process,
It is truly difficult to grasp the idea of multidimensionality as we inhabit these bodies here on Earth and are limited in this density due to the very fact that it is extremely dense here, compared to most other physically manifested dimensional realms of our Cosmos. These energetic forces that are accelerating on this planet are electromagnetic currents which are the measurement and description of these energies that are responsible for our very life force and our ability to perceive our experiences the way we do on Earth. Everything is energy and we can look at or describe it, in order to attempt to explain conceptually, in terms we can understand(or try to), the various different dimensions, as compartments and spaces of consciousness experience. These dimensions, which can also be described as timelines, all have varying frequency patterns that are accessed with and within our bodies and consciousness ability via our energetic patternings, DNA, the surrounding energies, and the clarity of these energies free from distortions or blockages. All of these variables and more, are what dictate what we can or can’t multidimensionally perceive or experience at our current level of consciousness here on Earth, collectively and individually. That being said, with the ramping up of these electromagnetic forces or our planet and that of the Universe, our consciousness energy is rapidly expanding and allowing us personally to experience life in a way that we have never encountered before.
As we progress forward with our ascension process on planet Earth, we begin to have new experiences that defy our current belief systems and shake the very foundation of all we’ve ever known. Some of us have stepped into new senses outside of the five we’ve been limited to- new perceptions in the way we view ourselves, others, and the world around us through heightened states of awareness, cognition, and emotion beyond the parameters of our former consciousness boundaries. Some of the things we undergo and encounter on our ascension journey are not all wondrous and amazing, but can be and often are extremely painful, confusing, and disorienting and lead us to believe something is really, really wrong with us. We may feel as if we are losing our minds, are experiencing a life threatening illness or disease, or are fighting gravity and/or defying any number of known laws of physics. At this point of our ascension process, we have already discovered the many things inherently wrong with the state of affairs on this planet and we’ve gone down that rabbit hole a few times and have begun to witness these drastic changes in ourselves, even if we didn’t consciously choose to drink the potion in our apron pocket! It isn’t the concept that there is something wrong with us, this awareness says that there is actually something right with us. It is all part of what all of us will be going through, at some point or another during this cycle. As we undergo this transformation, our bodies are being cleared of the obsolete energies, blockages, and restraints placed on us, as we were experiencing prior consciousness limitations. These new shifts in our perception and thinking, some gradual and some shockingly sudden, are the experiencing of our true multidimensional selves and the reality of the vastness of our multidimensional existence.
Some of the ‘symptoms’ of us evolving are a result of us becoming our true multidimensional selves- much like a caterpillar becomes a butterfly. If you’re reading this, you’ve most likely heard of ascension symptoms and this is indeed part of the shedding off of the old systems, beliefs, and energies and our physical bodies are being taxed energetically much like it would be on your organs after consuming an enormous amount of food. The high frequency rates of energy we are experiencing on Earth at this time are unprecedented. So much like the heavy meal creating stress to our body, this analogy can be applied to understand the way our bodies, energetically and physically, are processing this incredibly high energy available to the planet during this ascension cycle. With this transformation of our bodies and the resulting stress, we can experience a number of healing crises symptoms as we assist in the transmutation and purging of these old energies. We might feel like we don’t want to be in our physical bodies anymore because things just seem so thick and dense and difficult, like an intense struggle to just get of bed and go about our daily tasks. We may be suffering a tremendous amount of physical pain in our joints, muscles, or bones. Headaches, digestive issues, flulike symptoms, and a plethora of mysterious illnesses that professionals aren’t able to diagnose that come and go, seemingly out of nowhere, manifesting either in acute or minor symptoms. Our nervous systems are undergoing an extreme makeover in order to be able to absorb and utilize the ramping up of electromagnetic currents flowing into our Mother Gaia’s body.
Just as we may experience mild to severe physical symptoms that are part of the process of us clearing out all that is preventing us from integrating our authentic multidimensional selves, there are also the inevitable and necessary clearings that we undergo with our mental and emotional bodies. Experiencing higher sensory perceptions of the “clairs”: clairvoyance(clear seeing), claircognizance(clear knowing), clairaudience(clear hearing), clairsentience(clear physical or emotional feeling) are all becoming more common, even if these senses are not necessarily being experienced clearly at all. We may begin to see spirit bodies, extraterrestrials, negative entities and be able to verbally or non-verbally communicate with these beings; have telepathic communication with our loved ones or strangers through empathic or audial experiences; have visions or premonitions in dreams or through meditation or awakened states; have intense identified or unidentified empathic states of emotional or physical feelings of our own, those of others, or collectively from group energies or those of the planet; memories of past lives of our own or others, or collective memories of historical planetary or galactic trauma or cataclysm. Depression, anxiety, and a number of other mental illness symptoms may become very prevalent and as debilitating and as real as any physical ascension symptoms.
It is important to note that even though these various symptoms and experiences may be new to you, and as long as they are not manifesting as anything other than spiritual- meaning they are undiagnosed as a permanent physical condition or serious life threatening illness, they are indeed normal to the evolutionary process of humankind; and will eventually pass, as we care for our bodies lovingly, free from fear, and do what is required for us to heal. We must do the inner work to identify our shadow selves and wounded child selves and clear out ego programs and emotional traumas and any other blockages or limitations preventing us from experiencing wholeness and unifying our true multidimensional selves. All illness is energy, and can be healed energetically, but some of us may require professional medical care and treatments to assist our bodies, even if it means pharmaceuticals to help get us where we need to be in our healing process.
One of the things I now experience most on a daily basis and accept it as ‘it is what it is’, is the experience of physical time and space skipping or slipping or changing constantly. One of the very first significant messages of wisdom my Starseed guidance shared with me, was that there is one thing that you can always be certain of, and that is change. I knew I had heard this somewhere and was amused by this and at that time did not have a clue how true this statement would be for me! Funny, I actually learned during the process of writing this particular blog and wanted to give credit where credit was due, was that the original documentation of this concept of “Life is Flux”, was authored by Greek philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus(c.535 – c. 475 BCE). It’s worth your while to look into his writings!
Not only will your lifestyle and structure be forced to change with these higher frequencies in order to keep up with the pace, also will the minor day to day experiences of your cognitive and mental functions and perceptions fluctuate. You might find out your spouse has been cheating on you. You might get fired from your job or if you are an entrepreneur, learn that you’ll need to make some changes in the way you’ve been doing business because you aren’t making ends meet with the way you have always done things. Any number of life altering events are bound to happen at this time, in order to place you on the path you need to be, to learn important karmic lessons, and to make the necessary changes within yourself in order to evolve. Even though it may feel as if the rug has been ripped out from under you and your world has been turned upside down, know you’ll get through it and you are always supported, no matter what it feels like. If these intense changes aren’t enough to make you feel as if you are seriously losing it or send you over the edge, the small daily occurrences of multidimensionality evidencing can be very disconcerting if you are viewing them outside the context and understanding of the ascension process. Temporary fleeting confusion of short term memory lapses, not being able to use or choose the words to verbalize thoughts into sentences, feeling uncertain of what is really going on or who you actually are, looking at the clock and seeing that you’ve been reading or napping for 5 hours when it felt like a half an hour or so, and that moment where the jar of almond butter that was not in the fridge- subsequently appears right before your eyes as you look again in the refrigerator a half an hour later…and swear that was not there before(true story), are just a few examples. These and so many other little odd goings on, are all actually normal experiences of multidimensional reality! As long as any of these states are not lingering and hindering your ability to function and support yourself in healthy ways, you are ok and are only going to get better, even if it doesn’t feel like it right now. If you do not feel able to move past any psychological, physical, or emotional states, by all means, seek out professional medical, psychological care, or counseling.
As we speak of our multidimensional selves and our quest of ascension, the ultimate goal is to bring ourselves back to unity and oneness. Although we are individuals, none of us are actually separate beings, but are truly everything and everywhere all at once. We are multidimensional beings perceiving a very limited experience which is ever expanding, and with these expanding energies, we are that much more able than ever to read the energies of each other and our planet and that of our universe, and to experience a greater capacity to feel and connect and to receive these abilities and gifts of extrasensory perception that are our divine birthright. Through this process of discovering the true nature of our multidimensionality, it’s important to treat ourselves with forgiveness and patience, lovingly and without judgement, as we go through these incredible changes in our physiological and energetic bodies. Although we’ve temporarily lost our way, we are finding it again through ourselves and each other, through our empathy and compassion and ever expanding consciousness and connection with God and Oneness.
