One of the things that I've noticed that seems to happen to many people early in their spiritual awakening is they become hyper-aware of all the lies, manipulation, and control that's been going on in our world, and they are shocked and appalled - and rightfully so.
Some people get so fixated on these unsettling revelations, so obsessively focused on them, that get themselves stuck in a state that is very counter-productive that I've dubbed "Awakening Shock Syndrome".
Although awareness is good, fixation is not - here's why and how we can move beyond it.
It seems that a few very dark and self-serving people within our governments, banks, and corporations have been deceiving and manipulating us for their own economic and political gain for quite a while.
The truth of much of these
so called "theories" appears to be fairly well supported if you are
willing to keep an open mind and follow the trail of evidence
presented by those who have studied it.
And many of us go through a phase of
intently focusing on these injustices, spending a significant amount
of time reading books and articles on these topics and passionately
discussing them with our friends and family.
While these websites may be well
intentioned, there may also be a bit of "fear sells" motivation
going on here.
These people let themselves fester on
the injustice of it all and often let their imagination carry them
away with thoughts of how the controlling ones might be plotting
further dastardly deeds, and worry about dire events coming to pass.
They seem to like to complain and blame and are hyper-focused on the evil doers and their evil ways.
It's distracting us from putting our full attention on envisioning and creating a better world.
Focusing on problems rather than
solutions and fighting the old rather than building the new is a
well-known trap of thinking.
Anyone who understands and embraces the metaphysical laws and mechanics of reality creation - the Law of Attraction and more - know that what you focus on you attract and what you resist persists.
The very focus on the problem and the resistance against it potentially sustains the problem and takes focus and energy away from creating what we want - a better world.
This is why it is essential that we move beyond our shock and fixation on these disturbing truths and start envisioning the better world that we all know can exist.
We are creators and we attract the essence of our most predominant thoughts into our reality - that's why one of the golden rules of manifestation is 'focus on what you want, not what you don't want.'
Sadly, there are some who are aware of the law of attraction and yet they still remain fixated on the problems of the world and their fears.
Transcending Victim Mentality
One of the things that keeps many anchored and fixated on the injustices that have been perpetrated on us is victim mentality.
Understand that nothing can come into your experience that you do not invite with your thoughts - this is the Law of Attraction. Deeply understanding this means that you fully accept that you are RESPONSIBLE for everything that comes into your life whether you understand the reasons or not.
If we have been deceived and manipulated, we have ALLOWED it.
We allowed it,
When you fully embrace your creatorship, you take full responsibility for everything that comes into your life - no more blaming, no more complaining, no more focusing on the problem, no more focusing on what you don't want - no more disempowering victim mentality!
By understanding your responsibility for everything that comes into your life you free yourself from the "blame game" and allow yourself to step into your true power and sovereignty.
Focusing on the Solution
"Focus on solutions, not problems" is a timeless pearl of wisdom and is true regardless of whether you believe in the strictly rational view of the nature of reality, or you embrace the idea that reality is a creation of our thoughts.
The fact that we are awakening and becoming aware of the many injustices in our world is good because only with awareness is change possible.
And there's nothing wrong with being disturbed by these things, but instead of getting fixated on them let's use our awareness to motivate us to create a clear vision of the world as we would like it to be.
Let's use our understanding of what has happened in the PAST to help us formulate our vision of the FUTURE - and then let's focus on that with all our hearts and minds.
Let's envision a wonderful future and think about it, talk about it, and do whatever we can to contribute to building it. Do anything, however small. It might only be sharing your vision with others, or it might be donating money or volunteering time to your favorite humanitarian or progressive projects and organizations.
Learn about, share information about, and get involved in the new paradigms of the future:
...and so many more.
Do whatever you can and whatever interests you!
The path to a better world has little to do with worrying about the injustices of the past or fighting the old and it's all about inner spiritual growth and focusing on envisioning and building the new.
Focusing on Solutions but Still Holding a Grudge
Many move beyond the "awakening shock" phase and begin to focus on envisioning and creating a better world.
Yet few let go of the need to fear and condemn the dark ones that have strived to control us for their own gain.
A few enlightened people choose to change their perspective and see the dark ones not as evil or bad but merely as LOST SOULS, and some even see the dark ones as a great lesson that enhances our spiritual evolution, and they completely release their judgments towards them.
These few enlighten ones understand that, on the long and winding journey of our souls, we've all been lost to varying degrees, and we've all explored the dark side at one time or another in our many lives.
They understand that we all find our way back to light eventually, and so they chose to send unconditional forgiveness and love to the lost ones and invite them to join us in the light and in creating a wonderful new world for all.
And this doesn't just apply to the few dark ones who have tried to dominate us.
It also applies to all those who have gotten caught up in the fear and darkness - just more LOST SOULS on the long and winding road back to the light.
Unconditionally Forgiving and Loving the Lost Ones
It is very challenging for some to embrace unconditional forgiveness and love.
For many the idea of unconditional forgiveness and love makes no rational sense at all and seems like a recipe to get taken advantage of. And from the purely rational perspective, this is a very reasonable response.
But our rational perspective was formulated based on our observations of the surface layers of the grand illusion that we are a part of, and in ignorance of the wider and deeper reality.
Remember, that the dark ones have souls just like us. We all joined the earth game to experience separation from our divine source, to see what that would be like and what it could teach us.
The dark ones are merely lost souls - souls that have lost the connection with their divine source and cannot feel the love and light that is deep within them. We have all been lost in the game for some time now and to varying degrees.
Holding fear or resentment towards others serves no useful purpose - in fact, it is counter-productive.
Holding on to fear, resentment, and condemnation is an energy that does not serve the highest good for yourself or anyone else.
It also delays you from taking full responsibility for your experiences and fully stepping into your power and sovereignty. Releasing our resentments and unconditionally forgiving and loving everyone has the power to transform our world if we'd only give it a chance.
A Prayer for the Dark Ones
Here's a prayer that I use to help me release any resentment or judgment of the dark ones and to extend love and light to them in the hope that they will join us as we move forward in creating a wonderful new era of humanity.
