Transmuting Rage into Healing, Transforming Despair into Freedom

When terrible, heartbreaking events touch those who seem to be innocent, defenseless victims, something happens in us.  We hear about these atrocities and they are unbearable to our soft human sensibilities.  How can we react?  How can we deal with these stories that surface time and time again in different parts of the world, in our own backyards, in different generations, in our own newspapers?

We burst in rage.  We retreat in despair.  We harden in defense of our own sanity. 

We are, whether we allow it to rise to consciousness or not, all connected, all part of the same energy field.  Like an ocean where harsh weather in one region eventually impacts the currents on distant shores, we feel each other’s joys and pains, usually without any awareness of the streams from which they flow.

I leave the social, cultural, and political analyses of these problems, and suggestions for their solutions, to those who know of those things.

And in this moment, I write a reminder to myself.  I write this openly so that if you seek a similar reminder, this might stir your own note to yourself.  You can even post it here to add to the vibration of healing.

Ho’oponopono

I am reminding myself, as I have cultivated within myself a practice of Ho’oponopono to the best of my understanding and ability, that this that occurs in the world, in my world, in my awareness, is happening in me.  I take 100% responsibility for these action that cause such enormous pain.  I understand that if they are happening in my world, that on a certain level, I created this pain. 

And with this stance of responsibility, I offer, what I have learned from Dr. Joe Vitale and Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len.  I offer a prayer of cleaning of this atrocity in me.  I offer, “I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.”

What will this do?  It will not bring back the precious lives of the beautiful souls that were taken.  No it will not do that.  It will not pull the sorrow from the families and loved ones of the victims.  No.  It will not reverse their loss.  So what’s the point?

The prayer of cleaning, as I understand it, acts as an eraser of this disruptive energy as it lives in me.  If I react in rage (easy) I add to the energy of rage that created the incident.  I continue the chain reaction and I become a link on that chain.  If I take the time to clean this in me (not as easy) I break the chain.  I remove my link.  It dissolves, disintegrates.  And with that, I allow more light into my world.  I allow more harmony to express in my field of awareness which includes everything and everyone in my world. 

And so, in the wake of these mournful events, I make the effort to hold this occurrence in the prayer of love and healing for all those directly involved, and in the stance of 100% responsibility, and in the action of cleaning my space of that for which I would judge the other.

 

Getting Ready for "Inner Guidance Revealed"

I'm getting down to the finishing touches on Inner Guidance Revealed and waiting on some third party website details to be ironed out before I let this balloon fly!

Step 1 continued…

In my last post I told you how you can get started before the program even comes out.  I invited you to start looking at your negative emotion as an indicator.  I know I made it sound easier than it might really be for you.  It's tricky because the negative emotion is a painful experience.  So, even though your head might be making a valiant effort of declaring that this negative emotion is just an indicator, the pain might still be hitting you in the gut.  So let's add another piece to this early step in our exploration of inner guidance.

2 Kinds of Pain

Imagine this. Maybe you've had an experience like this.  You've got a sharp, prickly sensation somewhere inside your clothes and you don't know what's causing it.  Is it a bug stinging you?  What could it be?

There are two components to the discomfort:

  • the physical pain
  • and the concern about its cause.

Then you realize that it's a hard edge of a label inside your clothing or a staple from the dry cleaner or some other innocent irritant.

Now you've still got the physical pain but the worry is gone. Relief!

Getting the Sense of the Innocent Indicator

I'd like you to be able to start to develop this sense of relief when a negative emotion still causes pain, but you understand that it's only an innocent indicator and nothing worse.

When you separate your pain from its cause, you can actually even start to value that negative emotion for the useful message it delivers.  And the message of the negative emotion is not that everything is terrible (as it might seem).  I'm calling you to start receiving the true message of the negative emotion which is that you are focused in a way that is causing friction between you and You.  You are out of alignment with yourself and that is inherently painful.

Good + Bad = Neutral = Relief

Ok, let's look at this.  At first the negative emotion felt very bad. Then, once you realized that its message has value, you could see that its message is good while it's feeling is bad.

This instantly shifts you out of some of that bad feeling.  And this is guidance. As you start to feel some relief, you know you are headed in the direction you want to go.

If you're a student of the Abraham Hicks teachings, you might recognize the basis of that teaching in this lesson.  And if you want to spend some time training yourself into high power access to your inner guidance, watch for my new course Inner Guidance Revealed.  

 

Inner Guidance Revealed is Coming Soon!

Inner guidance is hard-wired into you.

It is part of you whether you’re aware of it or not. And I’m on a mission to take you by the hand – if you are interested – and show you how to make this a reality in your life.

They're Scratching Their Heads…

I’ve been preparing Inner Guidance Revealed for over a year now. My friends and family have been watching me, scratching their heads, wondering what in the world has kept me so completely occupied and passionate about this project.

I mean, they know it’s about inner guidance. But what they can’t see by just looking at my back (as I am forever at the computer), is the vast and powerful process that’s been going on in me in preparation for the release of this course.

Get Started…

For now, here’s a way you can get started before the course comes out.

Abraham (Abraham-Hicks.com) teaches us that your emotions are your guidance system. So whenever you’re experience a negative emotion, I’m inviting you to break the habit of thinking that the emotion is a “thing” or that it's a state that you're stuck in. You can actually start your training by simply acknowledging that that negative emotion is a valuable indicator.

You don't even have to know what it is indicating or what to do with it at this point.  Simply reframing your relationship with your negative emotions, and seeing them as valuable information, can free you, empower you, and even start shifting your emotional state right then and there.
