Step into your authentic power

The soul is who you are. You, as a human, are a part of the soul. The soul is the higher self; the human is the spirit, the personality. The soul knows you, it knows what you are doing, where you are going and why you are doing the things that you do even when you yourself don’t have a clue as to why your life is going the direction it is going. Your job is to learn how to go into the same direction as your soul is going. Because you can choose and create anything you want you can go into the opposite direction than your soul wants you to go. This is a sure way to find rough waters. But, if you go into the direction that the soul wants you to go, your life fills with meaning, purpose and love. You will be excited about being alive, excited about the people you are with and what you are doing.

Humans are becoming multi-sensory and are beginning to sense that the entire physical universe and everything that occurs to us and that what we experience is a learning experience, and it is not the entirety of the universe. As humanity becomes multi-sensory, and millions of people are beginning to, the experience of life goes beyond the limitations of the five senses. People are waking up and experience themselves as more than minds and bodies. The “more” is your soul. When this happens to you, you’ll begin to experience life as more than random and as meaningful. You begin to see that nothing happens out of the order and design of your life. Every interaction between you and anyone is perfect and offers each individual involved opportunity to grow spiritually. The experiences are perfect for that individual given the wisdom of the choices that he/she has made. When you view life from this angle you could say that everything that happens to you is always perfect. When experiences seem terrible, disruptive or difficult it’s because parts of your personality is afraid. This is also why it is hard for people to follow the path that their soul wants them to take. When parts of our personality is afraid it’s experienced as anger, jealousy, resentment, superiority, entitlement, the need to please, inferiority, every obsession, every compulsion, every addiction. These examples are all experiences of fear. There are other parts of your personality that look at a circumstance in a different way and these are the parts of your personality that originate in love. They are experienced as gratitude. The experiences of fear are not coming from the unchangeable ground of your being, it is coming from a part of your personality, but you don’t need to be controlled by it. It is important to fully realize that you are connected to all things, connected to the soul. If you don’t know this you will become even more frightened. The soul is not all of the beneficence of the universe, it is boundless. When you are in anger, jealousy, resentment you can shift your attention to a part that’s grateful, appreciative, in awe of the universe, whatever it is that is rooted in love to take you out of these negative feelings. When you don’t know that you can shift your focus you will find yourself trapped in this negative mindset and it can be experienced as hell, it can be very painful. When you know that experiences are presented to you for a reason and that reason is for you to experience it fully by not denying any emotions or to repress it ever, but to feel it. You can choose the healthiest part of your personality, while you are feeling these emotions, so you can respond from love.

Often times, we experience the loss of a loved as painful. The way you experience this loss is a matter of perspective. From the perspective of the soul, interactions between personalities are meaningful. When you look at life from the soul’s perspective you will be able to see the gifts that your loved one has offered to you during its stay on earth. You will reach a place in your life where you are grateful that this person chose to be with you for however long the time. If you don’t look at it in this way you will live your life in anguish, thinking that a tragedy has occurred. When you accept that a soul comes into your life and gives you gifts and chose to be with you, then you will begin the process of fathoming, appreciating and becoming grateful for the power of the interaction that you had with that soul. You will be able to receive the gifts that this soul gave to you. When you don’t do this you will continually be turning away from those gifts. You will be denying the very wealth of wisdom and compassion that was offered to you by this soul.

How to get your authentic power back
When you are not aware of the fear in you, which means the frightened part of your personality, you have not developed emotional awareness in terms of physical sensations in your body. You are unaware on how to make responsible choices for which you are willing to assume responsibility for, you’ll be on automatic just rolling along for the ride. Buddhists call this the wheel of Samsara, or suffering and you keep turning around and around. For example; you get very angry when someone offends you. You create consequences from reacting unconsciously and then you encounter other experiences that give you opportunities. It’s continues when you react each time you create negative painful experiences. It stops when you develop the ability to become aware of these frightened parts of your personality. This is a wake-up call and they are painful. When you change your intention you will break the cycle (the wheel). Intention is a motivation; it is the reason for doing what you are doing. It is an energy that infuses the deed or the word. If you drill down deep into your intention you’ll get to a bedrock bottom place where there are only two intentions, Love and fear.

You step into authentic power when you come to serve fully the energy of your soul. The ability to manipulate and control is the pursuit of external power, we see this all around us in the physical world. This is what the frightened part of your personality is doing, it is pursuing external power. It’s trying to cover a very deep pain, the pain of powerlessness, the pain of wanting to belong and not belonging. When you are in your frightened part of your personality you are trying to fill a vacuum and there is no end to it. You are controlled by the frightened part of your personality and authentic power is recognizing them. The pursuit of external power doesn’t have to do with how much of anything material you have or don’t have. It manifests itself as trying to acquire the ability to manipulate and control. Authentic power is to use your personality to align with the soul and in order to do this you will have to do the work (inner work) to know what the soul came to do. And the intention that really produces results is the intention of love. Nobody can touch you when you line up with the soul and you start using your personality to serve the greater calling (souls purpose), because this is what authentic power is. That’s when you are your strongest, your most forceful and your best. This is why you were born and when you can step into your authentic power you will be unstoppable. The authentic power is the ability to distinguish within you the difference between love and fear. Choose love no matter what’s happening inside of you or what’s happening outside of you.

The essence of spirituality

Spirituality is not having a particular belief structure, it is not subscribing to a particular set of thoughts. Spirituality is discovering a dimension within yourself (awakening) that is deeper or higher than the continuous movement of thinking. 

Every creative person has some access to a place that is deeper than analytical thinking, a place where you are not bothered by unnecessary noise. Creative people access the silence within without effort. Your entire life consists of sense perception, thoughts and emotions.  It is our pure consciousness that enables us to notice sense perception, thoughts and emotions. However, it is hidden for most. Our Presence/Consciousness/awareness is the spiritual dimension within. For example; the essence of a room is the space in the room, often times we overlook the space because of the objects within the room.  The same is true for our sense perception, thoughts and emotions. They can be so overwhelming that we can’t seem to connect with the stillness within. The space of consciousness enables everything to be. However, it is much like a fish in the water that is not aware of the water. You can be aware of awareness itself but you can’t say here it is.

All that you ever have and experience is the present moment. Most people are identifying their life to the thought forms they have and emotionally attach themselves to the past or the future. The present moment and the space within the present moment – the space is consciousness and this is who you are. When you fully realize this you will become free of the false sense of “I”. This is the essence of spirituality. Your sense perceptions will change and you will be able to appreciate and feel the beauty and life that is all around you. The feeling of aliveness in the inner body will be more noticeable. This realization is also called the light of consciousness or present moment which is the same and known as an awakening (A place of stillness and the source place of creativity).

Haters will hate, lovers will love

When we follow our intuitions and listen to guidance, new doors are opened and we increase our awareness, this is how spirit works. On the spiritual journey you’ll receive synchronicity’s, messages from spirit, that often times suggests that you should “Step out of your comfort zone” (spiritual closet). I stayed in my closet for quite some time before I had the courage to step out into the world and share my thoughts, feelings and insights. I found a way to express myself through the articles that I write on this blog. These articles are moments in my journey where spirit wants me to pay attention to so that I can learn and increase my understanding on spiritual topics. It may be different for you, some like to paint, write music, take pictures, walk in nature, write poetry, and the list goes on and on. Whatever feels right for you, go for it! What I didn’t fully realize was that I would also attract people that don’t appreciate what I have to say. Some can be very cruel and blunt in expressing their feelings. Even though their emotions have nothing to do with me, it can still influence the positive vibe. When this happened to me I realized that I was validating their opinions more than my own. Thoughts went through my mind such as: Maybe they are right? What if I a “crazy”? What I am writing about is nonsense, and so on, and so on. I consciously told these thoughts to go away as I realized that the ego (unconscious mind) likes to keep things the way they were. The insecurities and negative thoughts were simply a result of a conditioned mind that started to crumble the moment I became spiritually awake and now it was hanging on for dear life as I was creating a new reality. In spirituality, right or wrong does not exist. “Truth” is whatever resonates with your personal views. When you connect with like-minded souls you will find much support that will help you develop your spiritual gifts. In other communities you are likely to be ridiculed and judged for your beliefs; however, I have also encountered this behavior in spiritual groups. It is simply a part of life, not just online but also in our everyday life. Bullies, negative “Nelly’s” are everywhere around us and when you feel that sharing your opinions aren’t going to be received well, keep them to yourself. This way you won't be feeding their energy. The behavior of others shouldn’t hold you back on sharing what resonates and feels right to you, but you can choose who you share it with. Haters will hate and lovers will love.

When it comes to spirituality and all of the topics around this subject, you either believe it or you don’t. After all, it is a personal journey based on experiences. There are many explanation and often times it is a creative blend of our interpretations, science, ancient texts, religion, and so on, that offer an answer to the questions that we have. These theories create insights to our personal experiences such as: intuitions, visions, divine interventions, ghost sightings, and so on. Spirituality is an inner-knowing and it’s the unconscious mind (ego) that seeks evidence of its existence. The illusion of self (Maya) will fall away when we surrender to our inner-knowing. There are a number of topics that always come up when I’m channeling the guides: Awareness (consciousness, understanding, knowledge), how important it is to connect with the higher-self (authentic-self, intuition, inner-knowing), and energy (positive/negative, dark/light). I guess you could say that these three topics are fundamental in understanding who we are as a spirit within a body suit. So, why is it that when we choose to be “the light” we also attract “the dark”?  We live in a world of duality: good/evil, positive/negative, light/dark, it’s all around us. Even when we focus on positive energy we can still encounter the negative. Energy affects our overall being and how we react to the people around us. When our energy levels are low we can attract people, beings, and entities that don’t mean well. We can find ourselves under “attack”, also known as a psychic/spiritual attack, and this can be very subtle.  

 What is a spiritual/psychic attack?
Common negativity – Negative comments and thoughts. All kinds of thoughts create energy. It is the energy which affects us more than the content of the message. These attacks are not directed to any person, yet we can be exposed to them. They have a tendency to creep into our spiritual minds and can drain us from life energy. The energy of our spirit is capable of nullifying the effects of negative comments. Block negative people and their energy. If you are online and encounter these types of people don’t read their comments, ignore them, and block them. When you are around them at work / social life / family gatherings, keep your distance and let them be. Do anything you can to preserve your energy. The moment you engage in any conversation that is negative in nature you can find yourself sucked in and feeling drained.
Directed negative energy – These attacks are directed specifically at you and designed to cause damage to your spirit creating anger, sadness and misery. The intention behind these attacks are, often times, based in jealousy and anger. It can manifest itself in the physical and mental self as depression, withdrawal, headache, upset stomach. A strong and healthy spiritual energy is the best defense against any type of attack. Distance yourself from situations that are harmful and place a “protection” shield.
The energy of evil – Evil entities and beings can also attack us, but they can only do so when our energy level is low. They will lose their interest in us when we raise our vibration and focus on the light (positive energy). These entities seek to consume the entire field of the aura and replace it with a mirror image of itself.

Most of us will only deal with the negativity from the people around us. So, be aware, raise your vibration, and block anyone that does not mean well.

There are no coincidences

In numerology, the number three has a significant meaning when it comes to our being. The number three calls on humans to remember that we carry divinity within. Three’s symbolism is the exuberance of life; the spiritual being having a human experience. It also stands for: Life path, personality, destiny & expression, heart’s desire & soul’s calling, compatibility, and career path.

There are many patterns that come in three’s. The Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras made the observation that each human being is composed of three principles aspects: the physical (our body), the mental (mind or psyche), and the spiritual (the soul). Many adapted this concept and found their own way of wording Pythagoras observation. Here are a few examples:
Sigmund Freud: ID – Ego – Super-ego
Carl Jung: Subconscious – conscious – super-conscious.
This realization of the three aspects that make our being is also found long before Pythagoras made his.

Among many traditional tribal groups exists a clear understanding that humans have three distinct souls.
The Lakota Sioux: a physical soul (Woniya) – A cognitive soul (Nagi) – A divine spiritual soul (Nagila).
The Innuit (Eskimo): a breath soul that we receive at birth (Anerneq) – a name soul that is given to us after birth (Ateq) – and an immortal, spiritual soul (Tarneq) that is the true essence of who and what we are.
Practitioners of Voodoo (Caribbean): the grow bon ange – the ti bon ange – the z’etoile.

Our ancestors were concerned with the nature of the soul because of initiation. You have to know who you are in order to experience an authentic initiation like a shamanic initiation. Authentic spiritual wisdom is a fluid process that shifts and changes as it moves across time. It is not a set of rules or scriptures that is fixed and immutable. That beings said, we do find much knowledge and wisdom in the ancient texts which we can use in our spiritual journey. Yet, if we truly want to know our authentic self it is important to look at our overall being and where we came from: The source (God, light, energy) – Higher-self (soul) – Spirit (human being).

When our spirit takes its residence within the body it will inherit the genetic patterns of the parents. The same is true at the spiritual-energetic level. The energy of the mother and that of the father merge and produce a new energetic mosaic that carries the ancestral imprints derived from both family lineages. There are also idiosyncrasies derived from our own personal ancestors, our past selves in former lifetimes as soul memories recorded within the seed essence derived from our higher-self. The merging of these three ancestral lineages: personal, maternal, and paternal, creates a unique form to our personality for each lifetime.

The root chakra carries all the qualities of survival from our ancestors. These are the spiritual qualities which we can draw on when facing difficult circumstances. The knowledge and energy of our ancestors, which is also called the ancestral blueprint, are held within this chakra and unlocked when we experience a spiritual awakening. Our entire being is created for the purpose of gathering life experiences, lessons, and so on, for the higher-self. We can figure out what our purpose is in many ways: numerology, astrology, tarot, channeling, to name a few. Our soul has planned our day and time of birth so that we can fulfill its purpose. Nothing is coincidental, we may steer of coarse but we are always led back.
