Giving and Receiving: mastering the Spiritual Feedback Loop

Resources: 


Within spiritual evolution, it's important to move beyond the need for an outcome in the external world. The soul has no need for the world to be a particular way. Yet the outer is an externalised manifestation of the inner - a 'mirror' so to speak. Therefore it would be natural to look for some result of internal energy work. In fact, to an energy worker, who catalyses the field, it is essential to generate 'feedback loops' which accelerate and build the energy. The soul is yearning for this. How might we find that sense of completion in a world that is often so insensitive?...

Working the field

Some people are here to 'work the field'- to unravel blockages, to assist in reharmonisation of free flow, to catalyse and shift energy. Energy workers have a profound gift to be able to do this and also to activate shifts of consciousness within others. Much of the time, this catalysation goes on behind the scenes and unseen, often even by those whose evolution is being helped and nurtured by it.

    "It's not the towering sail,
    but the unseen wind that moves the ship"

    William Shakespeare

It's all about resonance. Frequently I'll be doing something, minding my own business, maybe something even as innocuous as having a cup of tea in town and I'll feel a vibration, a download of energy. I'll experience it as a surge through my being and a sudden expansion will happen. In the beginning, I was a little confused as to the effect of these surges, but then the universal language of synchronicity would put me in the picture - I'd notice some external impact on the person sitting next to me or someone across the room. They'd shift in some way. I'd ask the question "is this the person I'm here to help?" and immediately notice some movement of body language to confirm it. This is what I mean by a 'feedback loop'.

Feedback loops

Feedback loops are vitally important to such energy work. Without them, there'd be a sense of incompleteness, of non-fulfillment. The energy is flowing out from the source, through you, into the outer world and back again. You're being the conduit for some universal action and you amplify its effect by bringing attention to the loop. But if you can't feel the completion of the cycle, the energy will be less effective or even dissipate.

The same happens when you're directly exchanging with someone, when you're in dialogue for example. You know the interaction is divinely given, you know you can feel the truth of the flow in that moment, and you know what they're supposed to get from it (at least you have a strong idea), yet all too frequently, there's a locking of horns with no deeper connectivity. How often have you felt that with friends, parents, children and the less sensitive? Such exchanges can be pretty frustrating!

However it needn't be. And we can still accelerate the energy, catalysing profound shifts by changing our internal focus. Imagine you're in discussion with someone about some aspect of truth you're feeling they're supposed to get, but they don't get it, they refuse to get it. On the plain of the intellect, there's no completion or harmony through some kind of verbalised acknowledgement. Yet underneath, you're feeling the download of energy, the activation of frequency. The inflow is looking for a connection to let the energy flow. It's easy to become disheartened. Especially as your soul is compelling you to act. It's the very reason for your being. How might we facilitate the interaction more effectively?

Holding the keys

The first key is to feel the energetic boundary between you. This is all about being empathic. Your field begins to enfold theirs. You're activating a vibration (one of the Seven Rays of Divine Impulse) and you begin to notice the resonance happening in their field. All is good, except for such an empath, if the other person is not fully acknowledging the impact, the risk is your energy becomes dissolved into theirs. So you have to be mindful of the boundary. If this starts to happen, you'll need to contract your boundary and refocus on the purity of the vibration you're resonating so that it strengthens again. This will likely cause some dissonance on the plain of the intellect - some disconnect. At the level of mind, it may feel a little weird between you - disharmonious.

No matter. It's important to do it nevertheless - to stay focused on the energy and the beingness you're given to radiate. This is where you're using your empathic skills to become more catalytic. You may even notice that the other gets uncomfortable, a touch tight even, frustrated or where you might be activating karma, they could even get angry and wound up with you. Nevertheless it is your calling to continue.

Not confronting the shadow and splitting focus

Be mindful that you'll be activating shadow identities in that person too. And the shadow will often want to 'shoot the messenger'! It's so important that we don't try to directly confront the shadow. All that does is give energy to it. Instead it's about holding the space for them to express, yet inwardly you're still vibrating that activational frequency. You're still being the catalyst.

    Truth does not fight against illusions,
    nor do illusions fight against the truth...
    Illusions battle only with themselves.

    A Course In Miracles

At this point, where you've found the right alignment of the energetic boundary and you're still resonating the frequency you're given, but now you need the completion of that feedback loop. So you might have to shift your attention to a higher plain of connection. This will require the ability to split your focus, partially maintaining connection on the plain of the intellect (certainly enough to continue to converse), and you're also looking for some synchronicity perhaps or sense of rightness and acknowledgement (by the universe) on a higher plain, in a higher dimension. When you find this, the feedback loop completes, the energy accelerates, the catalysis takes place and you feel fulfilled about the engagement. It feels like heaven!

Summary of Pointers

So in summary, here are some pointers for such under-the-surface energy work I've found help me:

  1. Accept and acknowledge the work you're here to do, even if it goes unnoticed. It's important not to deny our calling.
  2. Watch for those all important downloads and then when they happen, bring attention to them.
  3. Look for and notice where the energy is being directed - it will come to you if you ask the question.
  4. If you're in conversation with that person (or even a group), master the art of split focus: stay engaged at the level of intellect, yet keep feeling for the vibration of being.
  5. Let your field expand out to encompass there's, it will find a natural alignment, yet be careful of the boundary, not dissolving your energy (yourself) into theirs.
  6. Let the catalysis begin to happen, but now watch for the feedback loop - the confirmation that the energy is connected up and flowing.
  7. Finally, hold your attention both on the surface level interaction and simultaneously the feedback loop. Watch and feel the energy build.

Completeness, harmony and joy

These are highly advanced and sometimes complex energy interactions. Yet when we can master the exchanges, we'll find a sense of completeness, harmony and joy, even in a world where few acknowledge what you're doing.

The work you've come here to do is profound and utterly invaluable. I trust my sharing might have helped ease the burden a little. Take heart, you're performing invaluable universal service!

Namaste

Thanks for this clarity around this subject Open. I recognize a lot of the subtle energy shifts that take place when a feedback loop is established and also when it doesn't happen. It can be really frustrating when you receive an insight about someone and there is no validation on their part. I was having this situation a couple of weeks ago where I received the download, an insight came and I offered this to this person (I sent her an email that I had this insight and was willing to share it with her). There was no response and I felt disheartened. I decided to let go of the expectation of an outcome and than a little later she invited me to have a walk and later asked about the insight. And this happened at the exact location I had envisioned! It gave me this great feeling of being at the right place at the right time. At these moments you realize and remember the perfection of the universe again. I'm still learning how to apply insights/energy downloads. I have a tendency to sometimes bring a message a little bit to harsh without feeling into the other person's state of being. Or having the need myself to be heard is also a pitfall which can get me in a battling situation with the other person. At first I think: I was right wasn't I? Than later I realize it's not about that alone. It's also about how you bring it. And it's not about winning an argument. Always learning…..always learning.

I often feel a surge, and have found great frustration arising because there seems to be no way to articulate that through the intellect. I can feel some part of me wanting to grab hold of it and explain it to the person/people I'm having the interaction with, so as to facilitate what is happening.
This flies in the face of my intuitive reaction which is to feel fully what is coming through and to dance with that.
I have some work to do on this as it seem that often I fall short and surrender to much rather then follow through with where the energy could carry on to.

All this happens within a split second.

It's lovely to read about this, there is more work to do Smile

Hi Apollonius (and Dale),

How I feel for you! I have been there many times - got many tea shirts!

You can see what someone is working with, you're even downloading energy for them, but they either won't listen or are oblivious. It can seem such a waste.

So what helped me was a couple of things: first finding the feedback loop in some other way - my connection with benevolence and their constant support.

Secondly I learned how to facilitate rather than tell. It's all about empowerment. People can often resist if you tell them their truth. So instead ask them an open question... "What did you experience then?" "Does this place activate any feelings for you?" And then if you feel to offer advice... "I have this intuition about what's going on - would you like me to share?"

Although you may feel things 'as truth', remember always it is only ever your perspective. So I'll often say to people "I can sense this, but in sharing with you, remember it is only my perspective. You must figure out how you feel yourself."

So I usually find this takes any resistance out and makes the person more trusting and open.

Hope this helps

I have finally a better understanding of this message. While it made sense to me intellectually when I read this post previously, elements of it eluded me.

Gratitude, as ever, for expressing your knowledge as you do.

Oh how it tears at my soul to think I've been seen yet the human predispositions come in and absorb. I so understand this message you send. The feedback loops are so transparent at this point. What is the value except that which I place upon it? The energy is always cursing through, how do I see when so many are blind? The physical being yearns, it truly does in so many moments. I have a sense it's not truly real yet it still vibrates. The harmony and joy accelerate within and into the field around yet it's the detachment from that which allows.. I've not eaten in days as the desire to feel human has been dissolved. It's just all so strange, I allow others to feed off me as their reference points are so altered. I just know...

A question came to mind with regard to feedback loops following another exchange on this site. Recently, I went to a weekend yoga of sound retreat. We were guided by a well known yogi and kirtanist (not a word??), anyway...the experience I find in most of these settings is that the energy builds so much that I can't sleep all night and then feel wiped out for days. Not everyone feels this way and I wonder if this has to do with losing sight of my own energy in this and totally absorbing the energy that is being built or seemingly pushed out by the one "hosting". It would seem this is like receiving bolts of voltage that are not "for me" and just spin me up like a top and then I totally feeled drained. Reading this article, it seems it makes sense to pay attention to what I am taking on board and where I am losing connection to my own energy. The question arises of why I would take this on in the first place - and I see a sense of perceived need to get something...knowing more and more that being at home inside with no need to take someone else's energy really helps to drop any incentive to have this lift and drop experience.

Thanks!

Just flying through this morning Jenny - we've landed in Scandanavia for our workshop in Sweden this weekend.

I'm can't fully answer you question, but I just wanted to point out that you seem to be very empathic - like me, which makes the answer not quite clear cut. Being an empath would make you MUCH more open to taking on other peoples energies in the first place. Why you take it on is another thing altogether... lets pull the threads.
Love to ya!

Thanks for swooping in Trinity =)...have a wonderful workshop in Sweden and let's chat when you are back. With love. Jenny

A hugely beneficial follow-up to yesterday's article on a "Bridge Between Worlds" that sheds light on expressing the ray 4 Diplomat in us when balancing empathic and catalyzing energies. Through your article on Mastering Feedback Loops, I've become more conscious of how my empathic boundary sometimes gets swallowed up in another's energy field -- and how, at other times, I resist this absorption by confronting the shadow -- or simply become impatient, over-ride my empathic feelings, and spin off into control and over-assertion. I also recognize times when I've held the sacred space for the right energetic boundary and felt both the sense of rightness and the shift occurring through the divine feedback loop. Pure love that is. I wasn't conscious of the pitfalls and dynamics of these energetic exchanges and how I go off the rails, so I greatly appreciate the insights. I feel more heartened and enlightened about focusing on fine-tuning and mastering the feedback loops. Thank you, Open. Catherine Smile

I think I understand what you are saying with this article.

My understanding is that simply observing and/or listening to someone with a non-judgmental awareness facilitates a positive feedback loop. An energy exchange occurs whether this is acknowledged or not that benefits the observed and the observer. I find that having non judgmental awareness can allow you to download knowledge,insight,information about the observed and about yourself(the observer.

I like to practice this anonymously on public transport, I imagine that my non judgmental awareness of that particular person/place or thing allows a positive feedback loop in a way that they may or may not consciously be aware off.

I imagine that observing in an non judgmental way is my empowered state that I can always exercise to be a positive force in the world and to fulfill part of my purpose.

HG's picture

Thank you very much for this article. There is so much information that helps me to understand the dynamic of past situations, to be aware of the energy flowing and to what purpose. It is very empowering to have this understanding and to know how to handle such arising situations. I have read it twice up to now but will have to re read it to take it all in. Profound knowledge expressed very clearly.

Cynthia Sham Rang's picture

Ahhh HG
You nailed it - one of Open's very helpful gifts - "Profound knowledge expressed very clearly." In other words, for me, experience expressed rather than information shared. To be a part of this community has helped propel me and I too am grateful.

It's so lovely to hear such enthusiastic support.
Thanks guys, it builds lovely feedback loops.

Thanks Open. I'm beginning to see an importance to feedbacks loops, like breath - out and in - creating a fullness, a completeness that somehow allows an ever deeper exploration; beneficial to all of us.

Ok..well....there is invaluable information in this article but omy, Consciously integrating this during a conversation....wow much much work to do:)

However the discussions on this subject by all have been very very helpful in getting a better understanding on how to approach this, Much Thanks to all Smile

.....but reading it today, March 16, 2016, it feels brand new and exactly what I needed to hear...along with the Signs and Sychronicity. ''When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.'' I am certainly ready this morning, as my life has felt like wandering in a dry and waterless place of late.

Thank you Open and all of the Open Community for your helpful comments. An oasis in the desert.
