Protecting Yourself. Today’s article comes in response to recent news reports of upgraded NASA surveillance. 10 Tips await you!
Blog-Buddy JORDAN’s request moved me. When she wrote:
“Id like to cast my vote for a little help sifting through reality related to this recent NSA news….
:I know Im not the only one who thinks this is extremely important.”
Maybe I can offer some words to offset fears aroused by recent disclosures of NSA surveillance. Energy Spirituality does offer a point of view about many human and justifiable fears, so here goes.
Protecting Yourself. Tip #1. Avoid Dwelling on Fear
Fear is in the air. How you handle that is your choice.
- It’s troubling, to some, that the National Security Administration, Google, Facebook, etc. can track your activity. And have been doing so.
- To others, the threat of terrorism is more troubling. Lack of privacy seems a small price to pay for stopping terrorism.
- Then, to some of us, what seems most troubling of all is how fear of terrorism is shaping institutions and political policies in modern life.
Personally, I believe that the more society shapes life based on fear of terrorism, to that degree every aspiring terrorist wins.
For certain: Every thinking person who lives now must deal with political issues. Politically aware Americans living today have a lot to deal with, including a country that is politically polarized to an alarming degree.
But will that “Alarming” become a major part of your life? Only you are responsible for that part. Hence the rest of today’s 10 tips protecting yourself.
Protecting Yourself. Tip # 2. Take Action
Take political action to support your beliefs
Energy Spirituality solves lots of problems. But that doesn’t replace voting.
If the NSA scandal riles you up, find a way to direct that passion toward political or social action. Don’t just gossip or gripe. Gossip is the refuge of the powerless. You never have to be, feel, or act powerless.
Become as politically active as suits your lifestyle.
That way you know that you are doing your reasonable best. In objective reality. Protecting yourself while you stick up for your beliefs.
Voting brings winners and losers, as does any attempt at political action. Regarding your consciousness and personal developement, however, you never lose.
If you have done your reasonable best, of course you win. No more could be asked of you. Let your conscience be clear.
But how much political action is enough? How much time is it wise to spend?
Negotiating choices like these can be counted as a significant part of your path to Enlightenment here at Earth School. Your caring, your integrity, your problem solving — all of this will benefit you in the long run, setting up good karma while sharpening your intellect.
One of my favorite mottoes these days, “Gotta love Earth School!” I mean, really, what better choice do we have? 😉
Protecting Yourself. Tip #3. Stay Objective about Threats
For example, remember this. You can distinguish between objective reality and subjective worries.
Speaking of one’s personal spiritual evolution, hello! Develop this particular type of expertise in everyday life: Get really good at telling the difference… Between objective reality versus subjective reality.
What happens in objective reality? That’s not just the essence of the famously wise Serenity Prayer.
Telling apart objective from subjective prepares a seeker of Enlightenment to overcome one slice of maya at a time.
Regarding NSA surveillance, subjective reality is not being tracked. Privacy still exists at that level.
But is Facebook Just Your Subjective Reality?
How much of your private information will you share through speech and action? That’s your choice.
Nothing on Facebook is private. Get used to it. Writing and speaking and posting all count as objective reality. “Sharing” that way means that you choose to take something subjective and personal and make it common knowledge in objective reality.
Incidentally, every one of you readers and lurkers is welcome to friend me on Facebook. Just don’t expect me to divulge anything more personal than a link to a blog post.
Protecting Yourself. Tip #4. Shape Collective Consciousness
Reject any overlay of fears in collective consciousness. Don’t take common fears and import them. Won’t help a thing. And that’s letting collective consciousness to shape YOU. For instance:
- Ever read “1894” by George Orwell? How about “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley?
- Have you seen any of the apocalyptic movies that came out in the last decade?
- Tried hanging out with survivalists?
- Let family members or neighbors lecture you on Dominionism?
I mean, really, plenty of kooks and cults live for fear-mongering.
Humans love big drama, some of us loving it more than others.
Personally, I love big drama less than most others. Watching TV, I turn away from murder scenes. I also refuse to watch other people kiss. The only time I want to watch a kissing scene is when I am personally involved. 😉
Just Say No to Drama You Don’t Need
Sorting out collective fears, refusing to participate in drama as “Entertainment” — that’s up to you, isn’t it?
As an Enlightenment Coach, do I recommend hypervigilance?
Of course not!
Instead, a person can develop basic clarity. It’s like what I do when walking down city streets and the intersection shows a red light.
Why agonize? Instead I think, “Okay, a red light. Now it’s time to wait for a green light before crossing. Then I’ll look both ways before starting to walk.”
Similarly, if you bump into people or conversations or articles or media broadcasts about “Be afraid. Sky is falling,” that can be a fine time to think, “Okay, more fear being broadcast. Maybe I can find some alternative way to amuse myself.”
Protecting Yourself. Tip #5. Energetic Clarity
Cleaning up subconscious STUFF would be smart
In fact you are part of that very pioneering. So you know about STUFF — stored emotional and astral energy, stuck at the level within you corresponding to the subconscious mind.
Energy Spirituality offers tested techniques that permanently move out STUFF. Other healing systems and methods also aim to move out stored fears, etc. Use your smarts as a New Age consumer to evaluate the various claims and choose how you will spend your precious time, hopes, money.
If you are going with Energy Spirituality, what is a good way to start protecting yourself energetically by removing STUFF?
- For an empath, or even a Highly Sensitive Person (not necessarily an empath), my #1 recommendation for STUFF removal is “Become The Most Important Person in the Room“
- Otherwise, or as a second recommendation, I recommend the easy-to-learn skill sets for energy healing, where you learn to remove several different types of STUFF: “Use Your Power of Command for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection“
- If you simply want to focus on objective reality. You might be interested in protecting yourself in order to have a better life with more success — not just financially but in any human way that matters to you. Then I recommend the understandings and workarounds in “Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy.” Maybe attend the related, annual, workshop for more success coming up in a bit more than a week. You might also have fun listening to a radio interview on success and prosperity that was extracted out of me by the irresistible Rosanna Tufts.
However STUFF is permanently healed, this energy healing will move you forward on your path to Enlightenment. Different descriptions of Householder Enlightenment, such as yesterday’s wonderful post by JOSIE PEREA, have certain commonalities.
One example is not being triggered by other people’s STUFF. Why not? That’s because an Enlightened individual does not have STUFF stuck internally.
At a time of NSA surveillance, wouldn’t it be helpful not to have internal STUFF stuck in you? If this idea makes sense to you, do your reasonable best to move out one chunk of STUFF at a time.
And pursuing this how? Not all or nothing, anxious, hell-bent on perfection immediately, please. Gentle but real progress, wouldn’t that be respectful to yourself?
Protecting Yourself. Tip #6. Nix Positive Thinking
Question belief systems about positive thinking
Hay House publishing is leading a big charm offensive these days. Oprah continues to offer inspiration. New Age is gathering momentum with demands to be positive, adjust our moods. Most recent one I’ve heard? Be grateful for five things before stepping out of bed in the morning, etc.
About that last idea. Really? First thing in the morning? Personally, I’d rather get up and pee.
You see, I am not a big fan of mood making.
Nor do I believe that denial has the power to change the world for the better.
I simply don’t.
What do I believe? The harder you, or anyone, attempts to be all positive all the time… the more fear and pain will get stuck in denial.
Forced Positivity Is a Vicious Cycle
Fake cheer adds to to STUFF. Which can burst out any moment. Such as hearing about NSA surveillance and then feeling an urgent need to say the rosary.
If you don’t approve of constant surveillance, here’s an idea.
Don’t do it to yourself. Do this out of the most virtuous intentions. Surveying your mind for signs of any forbidden speck of “negativity.”
Not that I think JORDAN or many of you other Blog-Buddies do this. I’m just offering 10 tips here, for you and for sharing with friends. Some of whom may be working extra hard because of all the anxiety in collective consciousness.
Protecting Yourself. Tip #7. Self-Authority
Protect yourself with techniques linked to self-authority
When I teach techniques for protecting yourself in various ways, what do they have in common? (Besides working!)
Everything about the skill set helps to strengthen your self-authority. Your sense of what is true.
Protecting yourself in the Age of Terror? It makes sense.
But you might be amazed how many of my new clients are so very scared about terms like these:
- Psychic attack
- Psychic vampire
- Energy vampire
- Toxic personalities
In my experience helping clients, many thousands of sessions, these popular terms are pretty inaccurate. Extreme beginners at Energetic Literacy will experience these but they pretty much don’t exist otherwise. For as long as folks have told mother-in-law jokes, people have not liked other people. But that doesn’t make them scary energy vampires or toxic personalities.
Basically, terms like these are great for finding someone else to blame. Better than living like a victim. But not useful beyond that early stage of personal empowerment.
If you’re suffering because of one of these problems, have a session with me or one of my graduates or apprentices in the Energy Spirituality Mentoring Program.
Move out the fears, move out some STUFF like psychic coercion (which is real). Afterwards you’ll be less worried about life, period.
Protecting Yourself. Tip #8. Stay Human
Avoid spiritual addiction
If you don’t know what spiritual addiction is, not yet, check out the link here.
Supplementary reading can be yours at this blog. Just type the term “Spiritual addiction” into the SEARCH box.
Spiritual addiction throws all fears into high alert.
No worries, though. You can definitely overcome spiritual addiction.
Protecting Yourself. Tip #9. Empath Skills
If you’re an empath, get skills!
With millions of people today living in fear. Such as dreading NSA surveillance. Until you become a skilled empath, oh no! Their STUFF will become part of your subconscious mind through unskilled empath merges.
Talk about things happening without your conscious knowledge or consent!
Of course anyone born as an empath can become a skilled empath. I would love to teach you.
Protecting Yourself. Tip #10. Live in the Now. Humanly
Yesterday I saw a sweet, geeky, spaced-out guy. He was walking in my neighborhood.
I watched him cross the street without looking at any passing cars. Guess he wasn’t protecting himself!
JOE was reading a book as he walked, holding it before him like a shield. What was he reading? “The Power of Now.”
Hey, each of us does the best we can, given our current level of consciousness. Aware as we are, we do our best to live in the present.
To what degree will you really do that? You have a lot of say so.
Theories Won’t Move You Into the Now.
Try some sessions of RES Energy HEALING.
They’ll move out STUFF. And add PUT IN what resonates with your soul.
Living now, be human. Also be willing to have a human life. This is one of the best ways for protecting yourself.
Human surveillance of your life, done by you!
