Authentic Self-Acceptance: Recognizing the Great Deception of Spiritual Enlightenment

Often, when we become more spiritually enlightened, we can easily convince ourselves that we know it all already.

We become very adept at using all of the spiritual terms and concepts we’ve learned, to talk our way through things on the surface and yet haven’t a clue how to actually integrate and embody that, let alone understand that we aren’t really seeing the depth of the picture – we’re merely spewing out the “right” words we think we should use.

Ironically, we can actually become closed off to widening our perspectives even more because we think we have all the answers, or we feel the need to pretend we do so that others will see us in a certain light.

It becomes much easier to deceive ourselves or play subconscious, self-sabotaging games than to accept that we may actually have more available to us to learn, which can help us to continue to heal and evolve.

This is a great reminder from Shakti Gawain (below) about authentically embracing who you are right now with vulnerable integrity.

I share it, as I see it as one of the themes in the collective pool to be conscious of so that we can widen and deepen our potentials, while also continuing to raise the bar on our vibrational frequency we are embodying.

From Shakti Gawain:

What I am right now

If we pretend to be more enlightened than we really are, we will miss an opportunity to heal ourselves. Admitting our limitations can make us feel vulnerable, yet it is very freeing.

We just have to be ourselves as we are now, accepting the mixture of enlightened awareness and human limitation that is in each of us. Through this self-acceptance, we find a deep peace and self-love.

Energy Update from Lee – September 25th 2014:

Hi Everyone,

I recorded the October Energy forecast earlier this week (given I am traveling again). It will be released next week, but in the forecast, I mention an upcoming rapid ‘energy-opening’ time for all of us on Earth. And this can be preceded by pulses or ‘triggers’ in your energy and physical body.

This forecast ‘Opening’ comes after what has felt (for many) like 2 years of a ‘slow down’ energetically. In extreme cases, this slow-down would leave you feeling compressed, trapped or clamped in your life, feelings or physicality.

Tom Lescher – Astrology Forecast For June 4, 2014 – 4 June 2014

Another resonating share by Tom Lescher/Kaypacha (thanks Dawn for sharing it).

The messages that stood out the most to me were:

  • Surrender of control, will power, and egoic direction/strategy is important to release the unconscious attachment to outcomes/results/achievements as our source of emotional state of being in joy and peace.
  • What ever gets you angry is a lesson, an unexpressed aspect of yourself that others are expressing – lack of self-realization.
  • You just have to have faith that something more is divinely happening, surrender the “supposed to do’s”, and then transmutation starts to unfold and manifest.
  • No more is it about being and creating the “exclusive” – “inclusive” is now important – exclusive was the old paradigm and patriarchal.

Harmony of heart to you, as you move through change.

But sometimes Source needs to use a straightjacket, Before I am willing to change. This week’s first quarter square Moon opposes Chiron creating a “T square”. That, along with Venus squaring Black Moon Lilith symbolizes the struggle between unharnessed self expression wanting to break free and the “Invisible Hand” seemingly taking the wind out of our sails for mysterious, unknown, but important, “reasons.” May you feed both yourself and world thereby creating a reality where none are found lacking.

Gillian MacBeth-Louthan – Camelopardalid Meteor Shower – 23 May 2014

My sweet friend Dawn of Reiki Dawn shared this post and it reminded me I had seen this information earlier in an email from someone. I wonder if this is why all today I have been experiencing slight dizzy spells where my equilibrium is off – sort of putting me in that Cosmic Ocean feel?

Any of you feeling anything today?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWell folks here we go again getting seeded from deep space with a brand new meteor storm first time ever for earth. As we all well know meteors are all from different parts of the universe. They are older than time and always have an agenda. Last year meteorites were found in the Sahara desert that were from Mars, when cut open they had  life in them. I totally believe that these space rocks come to give us something that we must need.

The Labyrinth of Life – Perspectives to Support Empowerment

Inspired by a friend who has been moving through some of the challenges that this Cancer Full Moon has presented, along with working through the integrating of important pieces that “the now” asks of us to do (especially the visionaries who will be showing up strong in the world at this time) I am sharing a few perspectives I did with her, at her suggestion.

She was curious (curiosity by the way is a very empowering and healthy first step, as it stops you from auto reaction and helps you to be present, step back, and to ask the questions that will lead to a conscious response instead) if she would have to fix a long-term challenge she has experienced with a family member in order to be able to move forward with her life and new things she is creating.

In essence, this is how I responded, which is the way I approach my own life, finding much success with it when I experience similar:

Yes, there is something there that does need to be addressed, integrated and processed in order to assist healing, but no, it does not control you, as that can be a way to sabotage yourself. To put so much power into something/someone outside of yourself is debilitating. It puts us in a perpetual victim role and gives our ego an excuse to feed its fears.

There are patterns there to address indeed, and to understand. Finding a way to step back non-judgmentally and with peaceful embrace, understanding the perfection of the roles being played out in the story of your chosen life. Recognizing and putting closure to patterns and how they emotionally affect you and why, seeing the triggers, and being present to recognize when and how they crop up and learn how to process and maneuver in a healthier and conscious way is key. We are conditioned from experience to quickly and rashly react without stepping back to ask the right questions to ourselves, nor to try to understand the dynamics and see through the other person’s eyes. Learning to unconditionally step outside, while simultaneously honoring what you and the other person ARE feeling presently, is something that takes practice.

When we use the word, “fix,” or say something needs to be “fixed” we are stating that something is in need of fixing and is wrong and this creates a judgment, which is part of polarity thinking – black/white, right/wrong. While something may be unproductive and non-responsible to persist and unhealthy,  there are reasons and agreements that have brought these experiences into being in order to teach us things and provide the tools for our soul’s evolution that we chose. Those souls who present us the most challenge in our lives, are some of our greatest teachers presenting us opportunities for growth. So our challenges are the perfect ones we chose to set up for ourselves to teach what we desire most to learn in this life. We also have choice in how we choose to perceive and process what takes place, but this can more easily be done when we are more presently conscious with ourselves.

At any moment, we have the power to choose a different experience. We can learn to stop feeding the emotional addictions we all have and to nurture our authentic emotional well being and empowerment, realizing nothing has the power over us that we do not agree to give that power to. The instant we truly recognize this can create a powerful shift instantly and along with learning to shift your conditioned behaviors and relearn how to be more in your essence, will help move you into a new experience towards the life you want to create.

My feeling on “being healed” of something completely is this: I’m not certain that that we actually completely heal something. My sense is that we are constantly in process of becoming master of our ingenious souls and this involves learning how to integrate things, embrace them, and process them differently so they do not become perpetual issues that block us completely. We learn to flow more naturally with things and to peel the layers to our core authenticity while we journey through the cycles of life and discover new evolutionary opportunities that will continually arise in different forms and ways.  Unconditionally seeing outside of polarity thinking and understanding a bigger picture of unlimitedness operating alongside this learned polarity is powerful. To see life as an opportunity, rather than a challenge, and challenges as gifts, gifts as keys…then we more easily flow through life’s doors with intuitive precision, rather than feel like we are searching in the dark, tripping, falling, hitting things…on our way to desperately find the doorknobs. When we learn how to process and integrate one thing, there will be something new…that is the labyrinth of life and evolution. And you choose the way you walk the path.

Beyond the Two Sides of the Fence – Unconditional Compassion is Where the “Greener” Grass Actually Grows

Yesterday, and through recent observations and experiences, I was reminded by synchronous messages about the importance of responsibility and the lessons of unconditional compassion. My dearly departed Nestor (rabbit companion) was always an instant gauge for me in this respect, as she would help get me back on track if I got out of my heart and in my head or wandered off path. And because of the intensity of our connection, I would instantly shift gears back on target without hesitation, as her reactions were profoundly felt, and so I would do out of love what I would forget out of responsibility. In so doing, it always kept me in check and I learned to connect the two so that they were one in the same.

Unconditional compassion is to me the most important piece of the puzzle and equation to healthy, happy, rich and graceful living. Under that umbrella recipe there are many things that are part of the ingredients: patience, presence, tenderness, genuine kindness, unconditional love, nonjudgment, the ability to listen and walk in another’s shoes separate to your own, wisdom, etc. And responsibility is part of doing the most compassionate thing for others and yourself. This does not constitute a “better than” approach nor to act out of our ego desires and needs (subconsciously or consciously).

This all may sound simple, but it’s not and it takes constant and consistent “keeping yourself in check” regularly. Part of that is the ability to not react, but to respond. In learning this, we practice patient listening, reflecting and feeling from another person’s perspective. We also learn that authenticity is important and it isn’t simply about being nice or doing the so-called right or kind thing that we would be expected to incorporate out of social etiquette or righteous ethics. It is about authentically understanding the depth of unconditional compassion and how it takes root in honoring everyone’s highest good and everyone’s chosen path of evolution, while remaining respectful of who we and they are, lovingly and gracefully, integrating wise reflection and introspection in the process.

Many times we deny responsible action, forget to practice unconditional compassion and self sabotage the authenticity of who we are. It is easy for people once they progress to a certain point of growth or evolution to feel they have reached the epitome of right action and choice and that all others not practicing the same, are less than. When in fact, the more you evolve and grow, the more you are called to bring unconditional compassion more into your everyday experience, beingness and expression. Simply because you are in what seems to be a more evolved space than you were previously, does not automatically equate to reaching the end of the road of evolutionary progress. Life is a continual journey and process and we must challenge ourselves to push the envelope of our compassion further and further, to reach and see beyond duality, even if we ourselves choose one side of the fence. The grass is not always greener on your side or the other side. The heart chakra’s unconditionally loving and compassionate energy field of emerald green, is a place that resides boundless and beyond, integrating everything with what your current mind’s eyes cannot see.

Responsible action is unconditional compassion. Embracing the gifts you came into this world to share, as well as to courageously follow through in the path you chose, but likely have forgotten, are part of this. Honoring others’ paths with compassion, communicating with compassion, leading by example from compassion, loving compassionately, acting compassionately, teaching or educating compassionately…all things fall under the umbrella of unconditional compassion for greatest effect and in respect of the highest good of all concerned.

It’s easy to get caught up in things, it’s easy to forget, it’s easy to operate on autopilot, or to turn a blind eye to yourself and others. It’s easy to see and hear what we want to and to judge it from the scope of our own or our instilled mechanism for reacting. It’s easier to abandon what we know in our hearts is of the highest good to share and be. It’s easy to sabotage ourselves so that we act less than what we are, make excuses for who or what we are and do, or why we can’t do what we know in our hearts we came here to do and is our gift. It’s easy to forget that others have different paths and that the best way we help them and teach them is with patient loving hearts and unconditional compassion – to live this in authenticity and consistency in a way that exudes and vibrates out like one small thread that affects the whole web. Rather than point out what is wrong with others or berate yourself for faults you feel you may have, it is more effective to live what resonates for you in an unconditionally loving way and to steer away from unhealthy judgment or anger (directed toward self or others) that can reek havoc on your life in many ways.

If we say we are spreading compassion in one area of our lives, then consistency is the next evolutionary step…and to bring it full circle to ALL areas of your life and to everyone and everything you encounter, every moment of every day.

If you forget or deny your responsibility to follow your path or to act from responsible compassion then there will always be a reminder in some form (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) that will come knocking on your door via messages in any way specific and relative to you, that can get your attention and at as many times as it takes, or at as severe a level as it takes, to help remind you. So it is beneficial if you can heed the disguised messages that are constantly available. I know it’s hard to hear and see them, especially sometimes given where and who they come from and how they manifest. Can seem arbitrary, unrelated and simply just life’s deck of cards you’re dealt. Remember, you are the master gardener of your soul and director of your life, as James Allen says, and the deck chosen was how YOU set it up, knowing what would best suit your soul’s desire and necessary process for evolutionary growth.

Taking the presence of the moment to step back each time you are about to do, say, act, think, avoid, fear, anger, fight, judge, deny, withdraw, defend, etc…and move into your higher heart, can make all the difference. In so doing, it allows you to receive the message of unconditional compassion that is there always when you are ready to hear it. And this in turn will alter your entire experience, as well as its emanating, residual effect.
