Downtown London, always a treat, now looks more festive than ever. In anticipation of the Olympics, the Union Jack is flying on many a street.
A veritable procession of international flags is strung above other thoroughfares. Fresh energy seems to surge through the crowds, a kind of collective self-consciousness. The crowds on Regent Street, for instance, look even more dapper than I have seen them during visits to Britain over the past decade.
In June 2012, shop windows carry signs with slogans like, “Look your best.” Those Olympics, and Olympic revenues, are coming, no doubt about it.
Blog-Buddies, I’m delighted to be in town during this time of heightened official expectations for the goodness of life.
In the words of one of my fellow teachers at The College of Psychic Studies, “London is coming together. It’s such a good thing. We needed something positive to bring us together for a new start.”
This Lightworker doesn’t envy her European counterparts. In today’s post I’ll tell you why. Beyond that, I’d like to share a historical perspective energetically on what YOU may be going through now, whether you live in London or not.
Auras walking down Regent Street
Any street, really. I’ve been doing the occasional aura reading technique since arriving at Heathrow airport over a week ago.
(Not incessantly, Blog-Buddies. Note that word “occasional.” Personally, I stick to that 30 minutes per day total woo-woo, just as I encourage you to do. That practical emphasis on human-type activities and light clock-watching is the simplest way I know to prevent spiritual addiction.)
Of all the chakra databanks to read around here, I am especially fascinated to do aura reading research on the Third Eye Chakra Databank, Connection to Spiritual Source.
About 90% of the folks I am seeing here are living with major Third Eye shut-down.
With the cafe crowds I’ve seen outdoors, passing by “Happy Hours” after work, make that closer to 99.9%.
In America, I have been seeing big spiritual shutdown, too, only the percentage is more like 50%.
About six inches or less, reading this joy-bringing chakra databank at the third layer out. Ouchers!
The small showing at Connection to Spiritual Source has many variations on the theme of shut-down, including:
- Fear of life
- Suspicion of people
- Frantic efforts to focus on material, physical life as the main, attainable source of happiness.
Why the aura-level shutdown?
Vibrations on earth keep lifting. It’s a spiritual invitation that each human being is free to ignore. Or resist. Or to welcome.
Since you’re reading this blog right now, chances are that you are among those who welcome today’s grand spiritual invitation to wake up.
Living now, we can move forward ultra-rapidly along our chosen personal paths to Enlightenment.
Even mild curiosity about the paranormal could be a grand start on this path. This blog, of course, isn’t about paranoramal phenomena, grand synchronicities, or The Romance of the Astral. Although interest in all of this has its place as part of one’s sacred path to Enlightenment.
The techniques I offer help instead with energetic literacy (all the way through to Stage Three Energetic Literacy, reading chakra databanks at will, even on Regent Street), plus the self-healing techniques of Energy Spirituality. But whatever…
Whatever has you curious, that very curiosity has you growing. Were you walking about in London right now, you would be a big standout with your Third Eye Chakra Databank, Connection to Spiritual Source.
Although that doesn’t mean you are necessarily feeling great right now, either.
Today’s big extremes, showing aurically
Two extremes are occurring on earth right now, plus a fine-line-to-walk in the middle.
At one extreme is spiritual shutdown. If the foreign tourists in London are representative of their countries, spiritual shutdown is common elsewhere in the European Union, not only the U.K.
It’s delightful to this language lover to walk the streets of London, eavesdropping on tourists speaking Italian, French, Spanish, German, and more.
However, it’s not so delightful — though admittedly fascinating — to do the occasional aura reading and see Third Eye Chakra Databank, Connection to Spiritual Source semi-frozen into stupor or chronic misery or (for now) a state of giving up psychic or spiritual seeking entirely.
The other extreme, often lamented at this blog, is spiritual addiction.
Spiritual addiction shows at the Third Eye Chakra Databank, Connection to Spiritual Source with extreme over-functioning, whether in desperation or bliss or a pot-induced assist into miles of spaciness, sweetness, and astral light.
Of course, finding patterns of distress in an aura requires reading far more than one chakra databank.
- With a spiritual addiction, choose from hundreds of chakra databanks about pursuing human life. Any ones you read will tend to be drastically under-functioning.
- While every person also has hundreds of chakra databanks about being a World Server. Connection to Spiritual Source being just one of them! With spiritual addiction, these chakra databanks tend to be hugely over-functioning, even desperate and frantic.
- A healthy balance means that all chakra databanks are working more-or-less properly.
- And, of course, spiritual Enlightenment requires that all of your chakra databanks function normally, with a joy-from-God bonus stuck everywhere. After Enlightenment, the whole storehouse of impressions has turned to bliss, a.k.a. Sat-chit-ananda.
Living now, each of us can progress rapidly toward Enlightenment. We’ll progress faster if we avoid pot, spiritual addictions and…
How about folks with other addictions? Alcohol, sex, pornography, and drugs remain popular.
Often these are related to spiritual shutdown, with fascinating variations in other chakra databanks related to that individual’s way of being addicted, plus dullness, despair, torpor, a sort of non-political “Downing Street” version of Third Eye Chakra Databank, Connection to Spiritual Source.
Electronic addictions are the real biggies today in popular addictions, of course. Whether to perpetual television watching or texting or social networking or constantly being wired and responsive.
(When folks never turn off their mobile phones, for instance, what does that say about being in control of their own minds? Or interested in them?)
In London, as in America — even on-screen during my transatlantic flight here — advertisers invite us to develop a sense of identity around electronic toys for sale.
Have you seen ads that show people represented by their electronic devices, talking to each other and playing one-upmanship?
Have you seen ads that promise you deep friendship and meaningful connection just because of how you are wired? Such a 21st century way to sell product!
I disagree with the premise. Droids and iPhones and iPads exists to serve us. Occasionally.
To rehabilitate an admittedly weird slogan from America’s National Rifle Association, here is what I believe. Machines don’t love people. People do.
Isolated? Not connecting?
Just yesterday, I met with a long-term client (GLADYS) who is a wholesome, well adjusted person without a spiritual addiction. After doing a Skilled Empath Merge at the start of her session, I described her feeling isolated, as if she couldn’t connect to other people.
“Exactly,” GLADYS said. “Thanks for putting it into words.”
Blog-Buddies, I’m here to tell you that when someone as deeply sane as GLADYS feels this way, she (and we) can consider what’s happening “Living in very, very challenging times.”
In America, close to 50% of folks are spiritually addicted, while the rest are in spiritual shutdown. While in Europe, according to my small but poignant research, about 2% are spiritually addicted, with the vast majority in spiritual shutdown.
Either way, you are living in the meaningful, fast-growing, middle by being a regular human being most of the time, pursuing your personal goals, enjoying whatever relationships you manage to have with real live humans and pets.
Living so beautifully, you are positioned in consciousness to evolve extra quickly. Only that may not be what you are noticing most of the time. Instead you may be feeling isolated, terribly lonely and disconnected from others.
Even with the great relationships that you do have, you may feel the terrible anguish around you. Loneliness you could cut with a knife, like butter. Solitude, self-conscious aloneness, waving in the air like the flags on display throughout London.
That quaint British expression, “No worries,” just might help you now.
Not that you have no worries. 😉 Except for psychopaths, addicts, chronic blamers, and the Enlightened, just about everyone living today does have worriers.
My advice to you is to think “No worries” occasionally. Remember that you are living in profoundly evolutionary, though challenging, times.
If you feel angst that doesn’t come from an addiction, you’re doing well.
As a skilled empath, you still might feel angst. It is all around you. Just reading body language and expression, staying determinedly on the surface of life, you could notice it.
Coming into London this trip, riding the Tube nearly every day during my spare time as a tourist, I have never seen anything like this. Not on my previous five trips to London, not during my two trips to Frankfurt. Not like this.
I have seen so many folks clearly suffering, bleak faces with no stiff upper lips but a kind of hopeless misery. Not to gross you out, Blog-Buddies, but this is my first time in London seeing well dressed adults out in public who were picking their noses, walking as though sleepwalking, or strangely blank as if waiting for somejone to control them.
Welcome any discomfort you feel these days, Blog-Buddies. Especially relish your happiness. But even when you notice some grim contortions of your fellow man and woman, be glad you are free enough in consciousness to notice the worries.
Then banish them with “No worries.” It’s only growing pains for the planet.
Staying awake, moving toward Enlightenment, you are a flag of hope.
