In this series, I will be integrating questions, experience and feelings that have been posed to myself or the Guides from several sources, in an effort to further explore various aspects of our Collective Oneself.  The "Q" is for "Questions" that have been submitted by readers, and have been paraphrased anonymously by me, the "C" is for "Comments" from readers, the "DJ" is for answers coming through from my own experiences or my own effort to clarify the conversation, and the "R" is for insights from The Reconnections.

The following dialogues are paraphrased from  actual e-mail or Research Group discussions around topics raised by The Reconnections and their material.   You are all welcome to join in, although I cannot promise to post all material that is submitted.  I will guarantee your anonymity, however.  In truth, there is only ONE of us here--and each aspect of this discussion represents a working "self" that is involved in the growth process. 

Seems like a nice season to be doing work around this, does it not?

Q:  What is DEPRESSION, according to The Reconnections?   

DJ:   The Guides have not directly spoken about Depression, per se, but there are several things we can take by inference to apply to this topic.  In the material titled "Dealing With Emotions," they described an interesting dichotomy between "Doingness" and "Beingness" that I believe goes a long way toward helping us to understand and deal with Depression.  I'll summarize a few points from that piece now.

R:  "Until now, being forced to function within a hyper-masculine paradigm, the emotions of an average person have deteriorated considerably in their quality and stature.  Instead of offering innovative and vital insight into the human soul, your emotions have been reduced merely to programmed reactions to human circumstance.  If things do not go your way, you get angry.  Your body energy swells and peaks.  If you experience loss, you become sad.  If your body chemistry gets jumbled, or if you have fear about the outcome of some situation, you became anxious---and so on and so forth."  

That which you have popularly defined and focused upon as "emotions" are often mere simulations of emotion.  True, you are feeling something, but what?  Sadness?  Happiness? Anxiety?  Confidence?  Pity?  And, when you feel it, isn't it normally attached to something happening (or not happening) in the outer world?  Isn't it usually an effect rather than a cause?      

Let us suggest to you a new definition for emotion.  Stated simply, e-motion is energy in motion.        

One of the usual results of old paradigm emotionality is an intensive focus upon a physical circumstance and one's bodily reactions to it.  Intensive focus tends to SLOW DOWN your flow of energy so that what is happening can be examined (and fixed, if need be).  Or, in the case of emotions denied, the intensity (or rather, the potensity) of the energy is flash frozen and tucked away in some dark closet, to be dealt with another day (if ever)."

DJ:   Reviewing this part of the transmission again, I sincerely believe that a good deal of what our modern world is experiencing as DEPRESSION is the process of taking old-guard emotional energy and "flash freezing" it, until a person is ready to deal with the (triggering) situation from a New Paradigm (Multidimensional) Point-of-View rather than a control-based response system.  In my 24 years of work with folks in transition, I have discovered that stress is caused by one of two things:

  1. Forcing yourself to do what you don't want to do.   or......
  2. Keeping yourself from doing what you do want to do.  

Q:   Is there anything the Guides mention that will help us deal stress, and assist us in moving out of this depressed state?  

DJ:  The Guides are not interested in walking us through outward "forms" before we are truly ready to take on the New Paradigm as an inward reality, too.  Instead, they are simply willing to sit with us awhile, while we collectively BROOD over the loss of our CONTROL (which was always illusion, by the way) and we wait to become ready for learning to do things differently.  

In the Old Paradigm, people experience release in one of two ways.  Either they wept (expressing grief) or they raged (expressing anger).   If they couldn't do one of those two things, they would attempt to exorcize their turbulent emotions through sex, work, exercise, war, art or some other form of expression--so they wouldn't be troubled by the uneasiness of energy that has is resolved.  Depression is our continued involvement with very UNRESOLVED ENERGY.  It is an iceberg, sitting in the path of our own personal "Titanic."   It's purpose is to stop us, and even to sink us (if necessary).......and put us into into a whole new realm of experience.  When someone asks how long their "Dark Night of the Soul" is going to take--the response of Spirit must be "as long as it takes."   

DJ:  In the old Shamanic Traditions, a tribal Medicine Man or Woman (in training) would frequently enter a period of personal illness and dysfunction, which was referred to as "Shamanic Sickness."   This period of transformation and energetic re-organization could often last up to 7 years.  During that time, the tribe would minister to the ailing young person--helping him or her understand the transformative process--and letting the energy have its way with the young one.  By doing this, they were assured to have a powerful advocate with Spirit, and a healer who would serve them faithfully for life.   In modern society, we have replaced this holy preparation with a thing called "disability" (nasty judgmental term!).......and we have super-sleuths, checking up on our transforming Shamans, lest they live too long on the loaf, and spoil the King's treasury!   The Guides see things differently.  We are not returning modern society to the old traditions.  Rather, we are seriously in need of forming new, updated traditions, to deal with the swelling harvest of Star Children and Neo-Shamans that are awakening at this time.   With those new traditions will also come a new understanding of emotions, and new ways of dealing with the movement of energy through the body.    

R:  "Genuine e-motion flows gently, freely--- unhindered by the need or the desire for control.  It simply is what it is.  It also allows others to be what they are.  Being unattached to outcomes, e-motion actually seems to move right through any obstacles, like a fog moving through a sleeping city.  

Each and everyone of you has thousands upon thousands of e-motions going on within you at any one moment.  However, most of you miss them because of the intensive body-based control issues that have been programmed into you.  Do you wish to unblock those daily stalemates that are playing themselves out in your bodies and minds?  All you have to do is shift your attention away from them for a moment and begin to focus upon the more subtle energies that have been flowing in and around you since the very beginning.   

One must learn to focus upon what is moving, not what is BLOCKED.  You must learn to read between the lines!  What you focus upon is what gets perpetuated and energized.  Blocked "feelings" were created to slow you down.  They are self-imposed tethers that have been installed to keep you from advancing in your consciousness too quickly.  You will never be able to solve them.  And seeking to understand them, beyond what we just told you, is even more of a waste of time."

DJ:   At the root of many people's depressive cycles right now, is a stubborn sense of STOP ENERGY--that requires that we be made privy to the ENTIRE AGENDA which Spirit has for them, so that the process can be approved before forward motion takes place.  This desire for "approval," is our way of controlling the situation.  Because we cannot get this information from Spirit beforehand, we are collectively choosing not to move forward at all.  We say we are "trying to understand."  That's bullshit.  What we are seeking to do is control the flow by slowing down the process so that it be dominated by the male pole (logic) or the female pole (emotional resonance).  But those processes have already been explored to the max, in other universal contexts.  What we are looking for now is something completely new--something that forms a conjunction between the masculine and feminine approach, and includes the best parts of both.  

R:  "Prior to this era, the Great Goddess held sway over the minds and hearts of humanity.  Indeed, it was Her temples that the Masculine God destroyed when He settled His people in the "Promised Land."  Magic was eclipsed by Logic, even though the whole struggle between the two continues to play itself out, in miniaturized form, within every household in the land.  Husbands struggle with wives, wives struggle with children, and "control" is still the premium commodity of the day.  

Most societal systems are facades that have been set up to perpetuate the need for control, the lust for power.  The more energy humans pour into perfecting society, the less they will spend on examining their own hearts for signs of imbalance and deep inner need.  Families are not a reflection of the society in which they exist.  It is the other way around.  And individuals are not formed by their families, either.  The larger body exists to be a mirror for the smaller---even as the smaller is meant to be a mirror for the one.  To seek to control and regulate your reflection in the great mirror is to miss the point of it all.  One cannot improve his experience of the INSIDE merely by focusing his or her efforts upon controlling the OUTSIDE.   

Female control is not superior to Male control.  It's just different, that's all.  It moves through the body in unique neural pathways.  Women striving to gain control (in society) is simply another reaction to outward circumstance.  Though it has some temporary cathartic value for them, it is really the softening of male pride and aggression that will finally turn the tide of your planetary energy. The drawback of control, whether it is masculine (overt) or feminine (covert) is the fact that it requires the controller to be deliberate in his or her methods.  After all, if YOU are the one at the wheel of the car, then it is YOU who must decide.  And, to become deliberate is to de-liberate yourself from the joy of being a child, of being free, of being receptive rather than the Initiator all the time."

DJ:  As I read through the above text,   I am aware that DEPRESSION appears to be a temporary middle ground that is being formed, while people struggle within themselves to move out of the control position, and into something else.  Humankind has long been conditioned, elementally and environmentally, to function in a struggle mode.  The majority of our world system is built upon "battling" for bread, honor, or influence in society.  Letting go of that struggle is not easy.  And, as we search for the means to do it, our ability to simulate the (elusive) security of "control" is slowly being removed from us.  This is by our Collective Agreement.  The Guides have been very clear about this in the Trans-Portals Transmissions.  

R:  We have spoken to you, in our Trans-Portals series, about this process known as "Phase Shifting." This is the gradual integration of divine and human consciousness---wherein human beings change places (and viewpoints) with Gods, Goddesses, Archetypes, Extraterrestrials, Elementals, and many divergent types of consciousness. Expanding, contracting.......back and forth across the Veil...........traversing Celestial Realms, The Underworld........the Flexibility of Hermes, the Alchemy of Thoth!

The Middle East has become a primary location for the opening of the first of these Multiversal Energy Gates, through which the Ancient and the Shining Ones now regularly come and go!  Through these Portals their essences pass, bringing with them a certain Radiance (Intense Oneness Energy) bleeding through from the Other Side of the Veil.   The power of this Radiance is profound, creating an acceleration in the energy fields of all who are exposed to it. The effect that it has upon the human nervous system is like the Siren's Song in the mythologies of old.  It can drive people crazy, if they are not prepared to rise with it to new levels of love and allowingness. 

DJ:   The expression above, about Radiance Energy (i.e. "It can drive people crazy.....") is very significant in our discussions concerning Depression.  As I work daily with people who are stressed, and who are deeply feeling these high transitions that are coming onto the Earth,  I am aware that many of them fear that they will someday go insane.  Others fear that it is already happening--or, they have seen family members who are "losing it" and it makes them very uneasy.  In most cases, depression forms an insulation around unusual (and potentially volatile) energies that are appearing inside.  It slows down their expression and assimilation, and gives the ego time to figure out how to deal with what is going on.  In their message to us, The Reconnections clearly spell out how to deal with this Radiance.  We need OPEN-HEART MERGERY within our entire world system.........and we need to let go of whatever we are doing that looks like control, replacing the old "mode" of living with THREE SIMPLE COMMITMENTS for living life smoothly within the New Paradigm.  

R:  "For those whose hearts are open, the Radiance has very little effect, beyond the feeling of a gradual, daily increase in personal joy!  When you are in Oneness, there is no objection or hindrance to being exposed to Radiance.  However, if you are of a territorial or separatist mindset, or have hunger for power, these vibrations can be very disruptive, and will eventually breakdown your body and your mind. What is happening in the Middle East now will soon be happening everywhere, as Energy Gates begin opening wide all over the globe.  However, by that time, the vibratory flux will be so intense that control-based individuals will have a difficult time even functioning, let alone making war.   We are giving you this information---about the Energy Gates, and the non-political sourcing of these conditions, so that you can realize how important at this time is your need for OPEN HEARTS, in order to be protected and to survive in the days ahead."

DJ:  Much more will be revealed about all of this.  And our discussions here, prompted by your questions, help us build a bridge that we can use to cross over these treacherous waters, and get to a firm foundation in the New Way.

MORE TO COME.   In the meantime, you are all welcome to join in the discussion by e-mailing me your questions, comments, and insights into this very powerful topic!   Also, those who are new to Reconnections Processing may find a lot of insight by reviewing the page marked "How to Figure Stuff Out."
