The path to enlightenment is often a lonely path, a path filled with obstacles, darkness, happiness, and peace. A path that is as illuminated as you are, an illumination that is fueled by our own faith and love for The Creator.As I lay here tonight, pondering the activations and slices of wisdom that are gifted to me from today's spiritual practice, I can't help but find nostalgia in the experience.
Nostalgia as I see new souls finding their way back to their authentic selves. Awakening to their natural gifts, with some of those gifts being metaphysical in nature. I watch and beam with love as men and women from around the world, from various cultures and faiths, begin to grow and experiment with their own authentic spiritual awakening.
As I am completing this beautiful chapter of my own life, the frequencies within me are shifting. Forming a beautiful gradient of ever flowing energy. Shifting from who I was, to who I am destined to be. This evolution of energy, of frequency, came from countless hours meditating and self reflecting- repenting what vices were blocking this free flow of energy through my spirit. Resistance that could only be released, once the root cause of the resistance was discovered, and healed, through shadow work, understanding, and unconditional love.
It is here in this darkness, in this dark night, where the resistance became too much to burden. Where the burden became too heavy to bare, where we break and cave, releasing emotions, energy, pain, frustration, anger; from our bodies and from our souls. It is here in this dark night, where we find the Divine. Where we find love and forgiveness; where we find the LIGHT.
We find forgiveness, by finding a depth in our spirit. A depth to the consciousness that we exist within. We expand beyond our own selfish perspectives, expanding to view all situations and experiences from multiple perspectives. We begin to understand the energy we are putting out into the world, and how it is impacting those around us, and ourselves. It is in this depth of our consciousness where we find forgiveness for the hardest injustices against us; and it is only through expanding our consciousness, can we find forgiveness.
This darkness is where depth is found. The ocean at it's deepest bounds, is filled with nothing but darkness. In that darkness, lies creatures of ancient origins, secrets of time, and Creation. This darkness is the same darkness that surrounds us when we are in our lowest times. When we feel as though the world is crashing in around us, triggering us, trying to push us in the direction of healing, activation, and integration.
Activating the third eye without processing your generational curses, karmic debts, your personal wickedness, shadows, and ego (etc. the list goes on really)- will lead to nothing but spiritual avoidance; where we avoid our shadows. And when we are avoiding our shadows, our shadows are controlling us. They are controlling the actions we take, the movements we make, and the opportunities we accept by using fear, scarcity, manipulation, and insecurity to create arbitrary fears based upon illusions and false programming integrated into our souls through the lack of "doing the work" with our spiritual healing.
Without diving into the shadow aspects of ourselves, without pushing ourselves to truly answer the difficult questions that our higher selves and our healers bring to us during our healing sessions; we are simply cheating ourselves of our full potential.
