Teacher, blogger and creator of the Chakra Cards, this website has something for everyone to feel amazing.
A week ago, I was lying in my bed trying to go to sleep and I had the most surreal sense that at that moment I could choose to die. Admittedly, I was sick with the flu, but it was more than that, it was a sense that when death comes, I’m not afraid of it. It was the sense that how very little real time we have here on the Earth plane and our lives are too fleeting to not be deeply honest with ourselves about love, jobs, dreams, money, health, relationships…everything.
I’ve also been having a sense of being detached from the events of the world, like they are a programme that I’m watching on television, an almost disbelief that people actually believe everything that they see without questioning it. I feel like Neo in The Matrix – aware that there is another dimension that exists alongside this one, yet I’m not quite sure how to make that transition into the new world. A world that I know exists, because I’ve seen glimmers of it throughout my life but I’m not quite sure how to make the transition into the space of infinite expansion except through the physical death. The problem is that I don’t think that’s the way, I think there’s another.
The only literature that I found on this was by Robert Pettit who said:
“Letting those third dimensional aspects of ourselves die and be transformed is an ongoing process that is required to Ascend…Your individual spirit and soul must let go of everything that could in any way bind it to the old, third dimension paradigms and duality illusions.”
He goes on to say that this process has become difficult because we hold onto patterns because of fear and habit that bind us to an “Earthly identity and illusory self-worth.” First and foremost, I’m a spiritual being having an earthly experience and not the other way around. I am not my name, gender, job, marital status or the suburb where I live. I have experienced moments of bliss and ecstasy in meditation, yoga or sex and I am aware that everything that we experience is an illusion. It would go further and say that our thoughts are the illusion. We are bound by our thoughts and it is through freeing our mind is how we transition to that “dimension” – which is probably an illusion of the mind too! But what is not an illusion are my feelings of being unsettled, of being ready to leap off that metaphorical “cliff” into a new reality, my feelings tell me that something is not right, that I cannot continue in this dense, heavy space where I feel lost.
Pettit goes onto say, “Let go of everything in your life that has no spiritual foundation or real, lasting value…the objective is to release anything that separates you from your belief about the God/Goddess within.” I think that my problem is, and it may be yours too, is that we have become so enmeshed in the physical striving for money, relationships, jobs, a life purpose, engaging in political banter, and the nonsense of the ego, that we have forgotten who we really are and why we are here.
In the past 100 years, the technological revolution has changed humanity. No longer do mothers give birth at home with a midwife or aunt or mother, no longer do we connect deeply with each other on a physical level, rather, we connect in this virtual world that completely lacks humanity, we are in such a hurry to buy a house, pay off our mortgages and then retire to do the things we’ve always wanted to do that we’ve forgotten the daily joys of just being alive; of having a body that breathes on its own and heals itself, of plants that grow without any effort on our part, of animals and children who just love, just because. We are so caught up in the drama of the external world that we have completely lost connection with the inner world. We’re so bogged down with the problems of the world that we’ve forgotten about the miracle that this planet is, that life is that it’s a complete privilege to be here on this planet at this time. That’s no accident, by the way. We are easier to control when we have forgotten that we are spiritual beings living a physical life.
So for me, this past week has been a mind-opener. I’ve become aware of the decisions that I make that are based on the ego, on the part of myself that gets something out of expressing an opinion, or doing a job or anything that defines me in any way that is other than a light-being made of love. I could spend the rest of my life in meditation – that sounds to me like heaven on Earth – but since I’m here, I may as well be sharing my light with others, because after all, I will be gone one tomorrow in the distant future! If you have time look up this song, I am Light, by India Arie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D8PZbLdhA0 you will not be disappointed, here is a woman who has remembered who she truly is, who we all are. My spine tingles when I hear this song because it’s true. I’d love to hear how it works for you in the comments below.
I am more than my name, my family, my job, my financial status or how much stuff I have collected. I am more than my relationship status or sexual orientation, or my hobbies or my past. I am the I am. I am a part of you and you of me, we are connected in the infinite bliss of oneness that is the I am. I have no longer forgotten. I am here. I AM LIGHT.
