If I had to choose the most consistent theme that has been discussed in the over 30 years I have been doing readings and counseling, it would that something "is missing from our lives." That something takes different forms. Most of the time it "relationships." The conversation goes something like this......"I am ........... years old and I have never had a good relationship, or.......I am..............years old and I have never been married. What am I doing wrong, why is this happening, I am giving up, maybe i can resign myself to living a life without what I really want."
Most of the people I speak with on a regular basis would prefer not to be taken over by these feelings. They have learned through different Spiritual Studies, that it is certainly not in their highest good. They don't intellectually believe that the emotion of feeling "they are missing something, or that it or they are not enough" is the truth. But there is still a nagging longing, an emotional pull, that keeps the feeling present in their reality.
Twice in one day this came up with two different client's who are aware, wanting to grow and to heal. They both didn't know what to about the emotional roller coaster this "mantra" keeps them on. Intellectually they both knew it wasn't "correct thinking," but it was still pulling at them and bringing up the emotions of grief and sadness.
As I pondered on this at the end of the day I decided to pull up the meaning of the word "hypnosis" from the dictionary. Here it is........ hypnosis >noun the induction of a state of consciousness in which a person loses the power of voluntary action and is highly responsive to suggestion or direction. -ORIGIN from Greek hupnos 'sleep'.
It would have made my conversations with them so much easier if I had done that while on the phone. What reading it did was bring me clarity and reinforce the truth for me.
We are subject to this state of hypnosis in our human lives from the moment we are able to see, hear, touch, taste and smell, which translates into the moment we come out of our mother's womb. Everything that we experience gives us messages that we internalize as truth. Since our families are our first contact, their subjective viewpoints and opinion's are going to have a powerful impact on how our own consciousness is shaped.
It is only when we arrive at a certain state of self-disgust, or experience continued emotional pain as adults, that we finally dig deeper and seek the truth from a clearer perspective than our own. We have to clean up the hypnotic suggestions from our families, friends, school, political propaganda, religious upbringing and programming from every area we have been exposed to. First radio and then TV, and now computers, have become huge contributors to keeping us in a suspended sleep state. It is all so easy. Right there in front of us everywhere we turn.
Waking up from the sleep is not easy. It is a slow and sometimes painful process. That is when I have noticed we all get frustrated. We get closer and closer to the truth and it is hard to bear. It feels as if we are hitting raw nerve endings. You can compare it to having surgery. When they go in and do their work, they have to keep going deeper to get to the source of the problem. As the surgeons come closer to nerves, muscles and arteries, they have to use their skills with concentration and focus.
When we reach that critical point, when our consciousness becomes so filled with Light, that the dark corners come to the surface with great intensity, when the pain becomes almost unbearable, that is when we are finally ready to Surrender. That is when we can reach down deeply within and find the Truth that has been buried within for eons. Slowly through the fog the Light breaks through. We too, need to stay dedicated and focused just like the Surgeons who are operating.
We are given helping hands from those who have walked through the door and broken the barrier. They are free. We can listen to them, learn from them and emulate them, until we are no longer subject to the hypnotic state. As most of you know there are more than enough teachers and teachings to choose from. All we have to is ASK! "When the student is ready, the teacher appears."
We will be supported by our unseen friend's as well. They are more than happy to be with us on the rest of our journey. They will teach us how to be gentle and loving to ourselves on all levels. They will bring us nourishment and beauty. We are never alone. We have all that we need within us. The wellspring of love and peace is available to us in every moment and with every intake of breath.
Let us each take the time to allow this process to unfold within us. Let us dedicate our energy and focus to releasing ourselves from the constant input and barrage of media hype, and go within to that quiet place of retreat and solitude. From there, the seed that has been planted in our Soul, can grow and blossom into its full potential. That is how we will give birth to Freedom, individually and then collectively.
Thank you. We are loved and blessed beyond measure.
