Dealing With Spiritual Emergency
by Daniel Jacob
In this, the final chapter of this series, we will be discussing ways to meet both the challenges and the opportunities that can come to us through Spiritual Emergency. Obviously, we could go on and on about specific types of transitions that are being felt, all over the world. The types and categories would almost be as plentiful as the number of people involved in the process. For now, I feel comfortable with the general overview we have included in our preceding chapters. Let’s review some of the primary issues now, shall we?
• Opening of Energy Gates: Breaks in the Veil of Forgetfulness which allow entry for information and empowerment from outside the "Reality Box" to which we have become accustomed. Can occur in a person, a family, an organization, a society, or a geographic area.
• Spiritual Infusion, Pregnancy, Gestation, and Delivery: Energetic Activation (Kundalini Excitation). This process is not gender-specific. Both men and women can become “pregnant” with spiritual birth. Transmutation is similar to a developing embryo in a human mother's womb. Emergence of the "Child" = Emergency. Labor Pains. Spiritual Midwifery. Giving birth to an Expanded Self.
• Appearance of "Symptoms" as the Universe Heats Up: Each person's universe is a Hall of Mirrors. Signs of Spiritual "Pregnancy" tend to manifest all around us, at many levels: Body Sensations, Emotions, Relationships, Geography, Weather, National and Foreign Policy, Media, etc .
• The Tragic Ones: Manifestation of our fears or disowned aspects that are reflected in people or places close to us: Demon Children, Wild Domestic Challenges, Mental Disorders, Natural Disaster, War, Disease, Famine, Financial Crashes. All of these seem to be distant occurrences, outside of us. But they are more personal than we know. "Ask not for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee." ~John Donne
• Global Acceleration Syndrome ("The Quickening"): Signs of energy expansion manifested in daily life and health. Transformation at three levels: Spiritual (thinning of the Veil of Forgetfulness), Physical (compromised immune system), Planetary (Global Warming, Holes in the Ozone Layer, Solar Rain). The appearance of Spiritual Gifts, Psychic Abilities, Miracles.
Nearly all the above are variations on a theme which The Reconnections refer to as "Making Contact." Once we lived inside a dream. Now we are ready to awaken. As we open our spiritual eyes, the forms and shapes we notice seem strange and unusual to us. It is as though we have entered another world. We become "activated," which means that energy races faster through our bodies.
Meeting and Dancing with Shadow
Whatever we consider to be dangerous and threatening in physical life is simply a reflection of POWER within. That power can be used either to create or to destroy. We hide from it behind a Veil of Forgetfulness, which convinces us that we live in a world of separated beings, fighting to survive, and we are not our brother's keeper. Many of us also believe that we live under the watchful eye of a God who will punish or reward each person according to his or her works---so we live in union with our fellows in fear of what might come to us if we stray too far from some "holy ideal."
Creative Shadow Work takes these separated elements (especially and including the God Force) and reconnects them to our First Person Self, so we can see and experience the universe in an intimate way. You might say we are given "personal eyes" instead of "general eyes."
Another expression the Guides often use is "soft eyes." They explain that, when a person looks upon every person, place, or object in his universe as an aspect of self, it changes his experience of the world. It is no longer possible to simply "write someone off" because he or she doesn't match your image of what a person should be. When judgments flow from a reconnected person's lips he, himself, feels the sting of those words when they reach their target.
The relationship between "Spiritual Emergence" and "Spiritual Emergency" is profound.
We stand in awe when we gaze up at Mount Fuji, or look down into the Grand Canyon. Yet we chuckle when someone suggests to us that these power spots of Earth correspond to energy links which exist inside each of us. As they stand tall, or spread deep and wide---these power spots are metaphors for the masculine/feminine elements which govern our everyday lives. The union of Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine gives birth to countless "children"… spread out across the whole planet, forests, buildings, rivers, lakes, sailing vessels, animals, weather patterns, all mirroring the many and varied facets of the ONESELF which we all are.
There is nowhere to experience being ONE except to define self as a single physical vehicle, living within a set space, observing these "children" at play. And in that sacred space, we seem to be apart, even though we KNOW that each reflection in the Great Mirror is but a snapshot of self, held at a distance so we can see it with greater clarity. It is no different than an expectant mother, lying on a hospital bed, looking at an ultrasound image of the fetus which forms inside her. The picture appears to be OUT THERE, in the machine, even though she clearly feels the baby as it moves inside in her belly. It's an optical trick, a similar trick that is being applied daily in 3D.
The moment of FRAGMENTATION, when an inner reality is projected outward in space, is the very definition of BIRTH in 3D. And it happens countless times each day....as we move here and move there, projecting our image on our "view screen" of the physical world. That which was within suddenly appears to leap out of us! Do you remember that classic scene from the movie "Alien," when a creature from another world suddenly leapt out of the chest of the astronaut who was hosting it? Frightening? Oh my, yes! Unusual? Not at all. It happens everyday. Though in our 3D World, the Veil hides our perception of that leaping out process.
We watch a person enter the room we are in. We smile and nod. We forget the fact that *one moment ago* that same person was living inside of us, just like that baby in the ultrasound machine. We blink our eyes and *poof!* there are two of us there, not just one. In the other person's universe, the same is true, only in reverse. Each "movie" that is playing out at the theater has its own agenda and story plot. Actor's play out roles for each other, and lend their images. Everything you see is you. Everything I see is me.
Things that Go "Bump" in the Night
One of the most fascinating and special things I inherit, as an online journalist, is hearing from readers who have begun to lay aside their Veil of Forgetfulness and are beginning to connect with the "hidden parts" that have been following them throughout many lifetimes. That's the real meaning of the word "occult," you know. HIDDEN. For some, these hidden parts take on the form of Avatars and Goddesses. For others, they can be playful, like Faeries and Leprechauns. For still others, they may appear as demons, apparitions, and other things that go "bump" in the night.
In their excellent transmission "Dealing With Psychic Disturbances," the Reconnections speak about weird psychic stuff that happens in people's lives:
"My Dear Friends... There are things happening in the world today--things which defy classification or easy explanation. Power surges are happening within and around certain individuals, electrical appliances are blowing up or failing when touched. There is an eerie buzzing or hissing that lingers in many people's ears all day long. Objects or possessions, usually quite available to you, will suddenly disappear--only to turn up in alternative locations that don't make any sense at all. Faces seem projected upon the backs of your eyelids as you meditate, and unfamiliar voices speak to you audibly as you return to waking from sleep. Certain individuals, who are of an empathic nature, are suffering from a spontaneous appearance of cuts or abrasions on their bodies, and strange messages of unknown origin are appearing on bathroom mirrors, walls, and wherever else they need to appear to catch a person's attention.
Psychic Disturbances. Strange Energy. Fear, loathing, and the stuff of runaway minds. It is time for us to give some input to these issues before things get entirely out of hand. And that is really a tangible fear for you, isn't it: losing control, going insane, being swallowed by something you don't really understand?
And we are here to suggest to you how you might handle these Psychic Disturbances. And to you, we say: SWALLOW THEM, BEFORE THEY SWALLOW YOU. That's the "short version" of our message today. Do you understand this? And while you're at it, be sure to keep a goodly supply of Sodium Bicarbonate on hand, just in case you get a tummy ache.”
The very essence of “Shadow Work” is bringing in from the “cold” all those parts of our Multidimensional Self that have been spread out and disowned, across time and eternity. We see forms and shapes dancing, like shadows on the wall. We shine the “light” of conscious awareness onto them and we immediately notice that they originate from some part of ourselves that has come between the light and the wall. To "swallow" these images is to come to believe that, in each individual universe, WE are the creator/originator of everything we see, feel, or experience. We are ALL OF IT.
Admitting and Re-framing What is Before You
There is no boogey man, no savior, no "axis of evil" that exists separate from us, even though it appears that way sometimes. There are dreams that seem so real, so vibrant! But that is what they are: dreams. Reflections of an Eternal ONESELF---whether seen as shadow, spirit, or flesh.
The Reconnections continue in their exposition on the origin of fearful things:
Everything you see around you, no matter how strange or disturbing, is an aspect of YOU. Some energies seem wilder and more chaotic because they have lost contact with their Creative Source. In your universe, that Creative Source is YOU. When you consciously own and purposely begin to integrate an "alien" energy, it ceases to be alien from that point on.
Psychic Disturbances in physical space are bucking broncos that are longing to be called home. They are stallions, seeking to show you how powerful and intensely passionate you are! Dark Spirits often represent emotions and sexual fervor that has been disowned and cast aside. Like so many bastard children, left over from days gone by, they visit the King, asking only that he acknowledge from whose loins they arose. If he refuses to do that, they often have the powerful to reduce his whole Kingdom to rubble.
If you look at Energy Turbulence and say "This has to stop!" you are aborting a birth of understanding that is trying to take place around you. But if you say instead: "What part of MYSELF is all this?" you are finally taking notice of the many faces that have been pressed against the window of your soul, longing to be invited inside!
You cannot change anything until you acknowledge and own it. When you do, it grounds the energy and begins to quiet the storms of life. If you refuse to ground your own dark energies, they will sometimes attach themselves to your property, your pets, your close friends, or your children. The Spirits do not do this to punish you. Rather, they are doing it because those close to you earnestly desire that you find total fulfillment within this, your Reconnection to Oneness. It is all done as part of a spiritual contract.
Those who cannot understand this will reject it for a time. And that will okay, as all energies must seek after the frequencies to which they are most attuned. Oneness will always be there when you are ready to reach for it. Separation abounds for those who still need to experience it. There is no condemnation in this."
This completes our study called "Dealing with Spiritual Emergency." I trust you have found it interesting, and I welcome your comments and anecdotes, as we all grapple with the tremendous input of energy that has been coming our way of late.
