Blaming others for YOUR state of Being...is it Mankind's most Disempowering Distortion?

Contents: 


Accepting personal Responsibility
Right now in the world there is a good deal of anger and resentment, understandably so. When you consider the state of world affairs, of the economy, of the environment, of the inequity and injustice, it's enough to make a saint seethe! Yet the moment we blame someone or something else in the outer world as being the cause of our reality and experience, is the moment we disempower ourselves. Why so? And what would be a more productive approach?...

Mastering the Chess Game

It's not surprising really that we might want to blame the outside world - and people in it - for those events and circumstances that 'go wrong' in our lives. Through day-to-day activities, society seems to always teach us the importance of 'self defence', of always knowing what to do, of not admitting we could be wrong. It teaches us that we are separate from one another and all things; and that events happen randomly with no greater cause. In society it's all about manifesting, controlling, profiteering, winning or just plain surviving.

We are instilled with wishes, hopes, desires or fears about "how things really could be or should be". Furthermore, we're taught that we shape our lives by moving pieces around on the external 'chess board': friends, relatives, partners, houses, jobs and cars to name but a few. How often do you hear about trying to find that perfect soul mate for example, or how to secure your house, your 'nest egg' or the life you always wanted?

It's not surprising that even 'spiritual people' might forget one fundamental truth...

    We shape our world and everything in it,
    including the consequences, people, events and circumstances,
    not by moving pieces on the outer game board
    like some logical, mind-led chess player,
    but from the configuration of consciousness we radiate from within.

Co-creating together

Now I know that accepting our inner configuration of consciousness creates the outer mirror is sometimes quite a challenge to get. Quite frequently I've heard from people...

    "Surely not EVERYTHING is created by me? What about what everyone else is doing? What about the people I come into contact with? Are they not creating too?"

Yes indeed. We co-create together. The society in which we live includes also those who manipulate it. But the point is, everything is consciousness and we draw EXACTLY those circumstances and people to us, that we need in order to see who we really are by reflection in their mirror. So for example, many people are currently complaining about the banks and big corporations exploiting us and our earth. But we each have the power to decide what we spend our money on and with whom.

We created this system in which we live by our own inner karma, and the ONLY way to truly change it is to change ourselves...

    Do you believe that by going inwards we can really change the world? I do, I believe its the only way!

A Spiritual Warrior Responds

So society is simply being the mirror to our inner configuration of consciousness. So let's be really clear what is meant by the term 'mirror'. It's not that we simply see a direct reflection of ourselves. Yes, we may see both the 'good' and the 'bad', but the real point is...

    the people we come into contact with,
    co-create circumstances with us,
    that get us to behave in a certain way.

A person might make us angry or frustrated for example: but it is us that is ALLOWING ourselves to be that way. It is this reaction, rather than a higher response, which is limiting and victimising us, not the person themselves...

    "A warrior responds, only a fool reacts"
    Socrates from Peaceful Warrior

I've so often found in this world, that when I have a problem with how someone else is being or what they are doing, that rather than looking at how they should change and how I think they should be, if instead I consider how I am causing this situation and how I am being invited to evolve, then it always seems to facilitate a more evolved, harmonious outcome.

    The moment we blame another for something that happens in our lives, or the wider world, is the moment we disempower ourselves. We give away the possibility of self empowerment.

Realise don't theorise

Of course we might get this Law of Attraction at an intellectual level: that we really do draw to ourselves the exact circumstances as created by our inner configuration of consciousness. But we really have to live it and test it to REALISE the truth in it. If we're truly prepared to take responsibility for literally EVERYTHING that happens in our lives, if we're truly prepared to put ourselves out in this way, at whatever apparent personal cost, then this is probably the most empowering thing we can do in our lives.

    We're taking responsibility back for who we are and what we experience. We're no longer being victimised by events and other people by blaming them for what happens. And we're certainly not projecting anger or blame at someone else - all that does is put negative energy into the field which will sooner or later rebound right back on us.

So do you have the courage to take responsibility for everything you create? From direct experience, those who have, have taken major leaps forward on their spiritual path and discovered they're shaping a life that clicks into place, one that really works for them, the life they were destined to live.

Hi

Great post, I can certainly identify with blaming others, infact I recognise how I have blamed others as part of an intricate game of self defense... If others are at fault then I don't feel I can trust them as much, then I have an excuse not to open up, get close and risk getting hurt. I hadn't recognised until recently that my sometimes judgemental thoughts were one of the initial cogs fuelling the self defending blame game. It feels very powerful and liberating to have seen the pattern.

Additionally over the past couple of days I've been exploring responsibility and what it means to me... In the past it felt like a burden, a chore... one defination I found that comes close to how I experienced it, stated that "it refers to a person attempting to meet the expectations others have of them."

However, thankfully this has changed, it feels like there has been an inner shift to following what feels right for me. My current interpretation of responsiblity is my "response-ability", my ability to respond to situations/thoughts/emotions (which I have created), with courage, truth and authenticity. It feels to link into the question Chris asked "If I consider how I am causing this situation and how I am being invited to evolve?" Perhaps in this instance, evolve could be interchanged with respond. I also acknowledge that responding does not necessarily mean taking action.

Be curious to know what responsiblity means to others?

Thanks for two wonderful, inspiring posts and gratitude for the mirrors, much love, Fi

Hi Fiona,

You said...

    responsiblity is my "response-ability", my ability to respond to situations/thoughts/emotions (which I have created)

I like that - it works for me! As our sense of presence increases and our willingness to embrace ourselves as creators of the moment and everything we experience in it, then yes, our ability to respond - our response-ability - increases.

But you're right, it's not at all a burden. It's a powerful opportunity to find something deeper, something more meaningful, a higher expression.

It seems then, then more we take 'ownership' of our reality, the more the yoke of responsibility is lightened by our increasing response-ability.

Hi Chris

Thanks for this post. Could I just ask you something that I often come up against in my line of work - what about children? Do they also attract circumstances into their lives and are they responsible for what happens to themselves? I think the answer is probably yes, they are also souls learning lessons - but people find this very hard to digest, wanting to see children as innocent etc.

Hi Becky,

Yes indeed - I observe in my own children how the universe still presents them circumstances from which to learn, even if they don't 'get it'.

I'd say it's because the universal process is not an intentional thing. The Law of Attraction is like a magnetic force - one of consciousness. Our inner configuration simply manifests the mirror we experience through the circumstances of our lives whether young or old.

I think many parents tend to protect their children from the harsh consequences of the mirror early on. Our approach (purely unintentional) seems to be to allow the growing child to confront and deal with their manifestations to the degree they are able.

So they take on increasing responsibility for their own life as early as possible.

Take for example learning. Trinity's son Ocean is home educated. Sometimes there are problems with motivation. It's hard to see the relevance of GCSE qualifications - who can blame him!

So our approach is to empower him by getting him to own his own motivation. We'll use questioning to help him connect with what's important to him in life and then we respond to his answers. So it's getting him to take ownership.

Thanks Chris. I also try to bring up my children to make their own decisions and take responsibility for themselves and their actions - it can be hard to step away when you think you know where their actions are likely to lead! My eldest son is in the midst of his GCSEs and has come to the conclusion that 'there's more to life than qualifications' - I think this is due in part to finding love! He can now accept that he may not be top of the class in all subjects and that is ok, so he has taken the pressure off himself after years of stressing about not doing as well he thought he should - despite me telling him that he was just fine as he was. I think what people struggle with is when 'terrible' things happen to children and adults find it hard to believe that they have 'invited' such things into their lives - but then, people find it hard to take that they themselves might have attracted 'bad' stuff into their lives.

Becky

Thank-you, thank-you Open for this timely post. It was just yesterday that it came up for me about blaming others and looking at how I can change myself and my response and of course the awareness of co-creativity, which is also another persons responsibility and their journey of their soul. We can never walk that for them nor should we wish to any longer change that for them......that is their walk.
But we can change our own and learn to '' let go'', of all those energies which want to hold us prisoner. It is energy, it is consciousness and if we finely tune we can feel the energy source.

Thank-you for this reminder not to get stuck into the trap which seemingly seeks to provoke- change our thoughts and we can change our life i.e to show us an aspect of self and a better way to handle these situations which drain energy . That is the benevolent source flow which empowers.

"The moment we blame another for something that happens in our lives, or the wider world, is the moment we disempower ourselves. We give away the possibility of self empowerment".

"We're taking responsibility back for who we are and what we experience. We're no longer being victimised by events and other people by blaming them for what happens. And we're certainly not projecting anger or blame at someone else - all that does is put negative energy into the field which will sooner or later rebound right back on us -" Openhand

interesting to see that we all seem to be connecting up to the same thought of "self-empowerment" hidden in the response-ability. I almost breathed out loud when i got to those lines in your article, Open, and it totally resonates with how i feel about this topic. "Response ability" does not need to be heavy, difficult, it is, can be, in fact a playful surrender and paradoxically a throwing off certain (imagined) burdens, and a new level of liberation and internal flow of strength.

Of course i too have to check continuously how deeply i am open and ready in every moment of my life to be truly exercising self-scrutiny and diligence and non-stop self-inspection... as all these are needed to avoid the temptation to fall for the existing patterns and programs (installed in us all by society, education and just simply the lulled sense of Self) to blame and get the seemingly easy way out of a situation...

i know someone who inspires me a lot along these lines and i learnt lots from him over this topic. he showed me a non-theoretical but full of juice of life kind of example of how to be actually THANKFUL for every "uncomfortable" situation in life. with a beautiful sense of humbleness.

Every uncomfortable situation is a treasure we can choose to be thankful for (or defeated by).

----------------------------

One more... sometimes the game is even subtler, and it is not a person but our own internal personas that we can blame (hide behind), reaching a subtle level of dis-identification from ourselves, thus cutting off certain aspects of self but in the end simply avoiding to face responsibility...

I see that at a certain level of self reflection one can start playing this kind of a hide and seek with oneself... (i see it plenty of times in people around me as well as myself) after all the internal work one's done, the ego still tends to hide behind certain internal roles, aims, ideas, or simply claim "innocence" (as one "conscious, self-reflected self", inverted commas intended) and blame "those nasty" internal patterns instead of accepting and truly taking FULL responsibility.

For sure there were times i did, still do, that too, as we all do, but what i seem to recognise more and more is that after a certain point there comes a level of numbness, frozenness and stop of flow.

would be grateful to hear your experience.
Réka

Hi Reka,
I must say I found your post amusing and insightful with so much truth explained in it-especally about the hide and seek syndrome. I think the moment we choose to change the tune and hold the space and not feed the monster (whether external or internal) is the moment we find true liberation.To be honest I see it like a dis-ease. It's funny how i am becoming more the observer of myself without trying and as I watch my thoughts I see myself retracting as I draw closer to the truth.
And the way you speak about response-ability not being heavy but rather a playful surrender is a good approach, one which my higher consciousness is drawing me towards.

There is nothing there , nothing to hide from anymore. So the game stops.
I know what you mean about after a certain point there comes a level of numbness and frozenness ....

The tug of war ceases........ when we find peace and don't feed the monsters...and align to to the light within

Thankx,blessings,a smile

Tess,
yes, I also enjoy reading your posts often, thank you for reply. <3
and haha, it is a game, sometimes playful, sometimes painful

there's a saying in Hungarian: "Even a white lily can cast a black shadow."
so there we are, all radiant white lilies...
(and can really a shadow be a monster?) Wink

love, Réka

...... Mmm,a quote with some truth abit like a rose with sharp prickles ,I am not so sure myself Reka if ''all are radiant white lilies'',or radient red roses, perhaps those who have forgotton their divininity at the core.......but the tapestry has many colours.

...a beautiful quote''.To light a candle is to cast out a shadow'' Ursula le Guin., eventually all returns to light...

Can shadows be monsters ? .......In my world- grr....often it feels yes!

So I say embrace the shadows, see what is needed to learn, but not too hold on to them drowned for too long, one might miss the sun rising and the colours appear different !!
With love Tess.

and of course, I forgot .....(just in case if may have been not clear),the thistles, the poiseness plants also come from the divinity, the whole, the oness, just are in a different shade in the spectrum of light or darkness depending on where you are standing........

What a garden of delights it is indeed to master.....no wonder we poise in disbelief.

Hello everyone,
This topic is so relevant to me now, this last week has been very challenging. Old patterns coming up for me to confront, I did slip back into feeling dis-empowered and blaming others for my reality ( at work ) the old feelings of been bullied by people. Actually I did think I had met the challenge by confronting the individual, but the next day I again experienced bully tactics by someone else. To be honest I felt like handing my notice in and moving down to Glastonbury near you guys. However I know there is a lesson to be learnt what did I do to attract the situation? By standing up to a bully I only attracted another! Im not really sure to be honest the only thing I do know is that I am detaching and clearing as much as possible so at least I can do my job effectively ( I have recently been given promotion ) I know the promotion has something to do it. The only difference to my old pattern of behavior is that I dont feel the victim I am owning why this lesson has been mirrored back to me. Im not blaming as Im looking into why the bullies felt the way they did the anger the resentment. I also have compassion for them however it is still difficult for me and I am confronting my old reactive patterns of feeling the victim so not giving my power away. I did not react to these individuals I responded, I know their perception of their reality is different to my own in fact after talking to one of them they just felt left out and unwanted. I feel this is a very challenging for me, but I am surrendering to my inner tightness and confronting my belief systems. Liberating in one way, but very difficult in another. Any thoughts would be gratefully received Love Ruthxx

Hi Ruth,

So let me ask you, what exactly is a 'bully' to you? How do you experience being 'bullied'?

Open

Hi Open
Good question, I suppose it is some one who makes me feel weak and stupid. I left a 28 year relationship for this very reason to get away from my husband and my mother in law who made me feel just that. Since then now nearly two years ago I haven't looked back Ive gone from strength to strength. Yet since then this bullying thing keeps been presented to me and now its at work. I am a strong person I've survived cancer and awakened to who I truly am have changed my life and am following my truth. I know that these people are been presented to me for a reason, but still Im struggling. I want to leave my job now and run away, but I know its not the answer, I suppose I feel under attack,threatened and humilliated in front of others.
Love Ruth x

Open's picture

Hi Ruth,

Well here's the point my friend, no one, but no one, can "make you feel week and stupid". No one can "humiliate" you. You can only do these things to yourself.

It's exactly the same as suffering. No one can make you suffer. Only you suffer, and it is a choice.

Thus, essentially there is no such thing as a bully. There are only those who allow themselves to be bullied in some way.

For some inner reason, you disempower yourself and therefore manifest these 'bullies' so that you may touch your disempowerment, to expose it, so that you may feel it, process it and release it.

So how do you deal with it? The question is "what do you need from this situation?" "what can you not accept?". And I'd say your soul has already answered in your own words. At some level (probably the emotional level), you want "to leave the job and runaway".

Runaway to where?

You are whole and complete. You are everywhere. You are the all of it. The up and the down of it. The good and the bad of it. At an absolute level, you cannot run away somewhere and "get away from it all". If you can accept this, if you can sit in the depths of hell and soften the inner contraction of your soul, you will be free. And you will never encounter a bully again.

Yes there will always be people who are brutish. But it will be your choice entirely whether this affects you. Remember, you are so much more than the physical or emotional.

Open Ok

Every word of your comment is like a bell ringing within me. BOOM! BOOM! DZIIN!

So powerful.

When I was on my own, isolated in Binyamina, I kept feeling all the things, even though external triggers were not there anymore. It's all inside! Other people just push the buttons and help reveal all those things.

There is really no place we can run away from ourselves. So the only way is to turn around and face it all. What else is there to do?

We keep retracting from our feelings and sensations, from the pain, hope that it will stop if this and that. But the funny thing is that it is already here! And we're ok. So why not allow ourselves to feel it in truth, without looking for reasons and hang the responsibility onto others?

In the end of the day I always find that I am alone, me and my inner world to look at, acknowledge, handle, clean, clear, grow and make sure it evolves. Trying to place it in other people's hands only makes it stuck, stagnating and degrading into lower and lower vibration, so that I can see it better, in case I deny or avoid.

So, I always remind myself not to be afraid of myself and my feelings, and of my responsibility for my experiences and perception.

Yulia

Hi Open,
Thankyou, I think my soul is wanting to shake off the shackles of my former self completely, I thought I had with me leaving a controlling husband and mother in law, but obviously not as it was me who let them all of the time and I have to own that. The Ruth that could be controlled and dis empowered is still attached somewhere it must be, confronting these attachments is hard very hard yet liberating at the same time I feel a sense of relief already the penny has dropped amazing. Thankyou so much. Ruthxx

There is so much of I can resonate with what you write about Ruth, of feeling everybody everywhere is out to 'get you', I can say I have spent a large part of my life in that disempowering way, that really now have chosen to climb out of the self destructive hole I allowed. A large part of this process has been about dissecting my own ego and examining it (which can also feel disempowering)!

Yulias words are so true '' We keep retracting from our feelings and sensations, from the pain, hope that it will stop if this and that. But the funny thing is that it is already here! And we're ok. So why not allow ourselves to feel it in truth, without looking for reasons and hang the responsibility onto others . Trying to place it in other people's hands only makes it stuck, stagnating and degrading into lower and lower vibration''-
Although I see the utmost importance of self analysis i.e what is it about you that is attracting these things like a magnet, i also see the co creative web. Sometimes we can ignite things in others ,like being over absorbing that may cause others to behave in certain ways and then feel, sense take on their burden as our own.It's a two way tug of war.

The most important point I'd like to make which I have come to see within the root of allowing oneself to be dis-empowered and that is about not feeling enough love for the authentic self, i.e a question of worthiness (but that has been my experience).
People who have deep love, respect for themselves automatically have it for others are kind, compassionate and generally loving.It's the opposite of how society seems to depict self love i.e as having to be arrogant and completly in the ego.......and I do even see this subtely in spiritual love and light circles as well....

So, ask yourself ''How can I learn to love my authentic self and evolve past being touched by other peoples things and process my own attachments and dark areas which need to be brought into the light'' ?

I think self love is a long hard process.And the only place we can look is first to our self.It all seems to starts there........and going deep into the roots....

Sometimes the angels are guiding and sometimes others are blinded by the light....but worse when we choose to sit in our own blindness .

I guess we breathe into life more when we start living from the heart, actually being from the heart not the heart being stuck in the head and cease being pulled in to head to head, ego to ego. We move beyond and everything falls away.......

But to follow Opens words....the best place to look is the self first.One step at a time........It all can seem like a long hard process and we have to walk before we can run I am learning and not jump from step 1 to step 99....

"You yourself, as much as anybody else in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection'' Buddha.

Thankyou Teresa,
I agree self love is a hard and long process, previously I would make excuses for others abuse towards me and hoped I could help them. My friend ( Spiritual mentor ) asked me if I loved my then husband more than I loved myself and I did! So the journey since then has been one of honoring myself and regaining my self worth and confidence. I know however that this process is ongoing and the bullying aspect is my own lack of self worth Ive got alot of work to do and self forgiveness I feel is part of that. There is alot of darkness were I work and many people are frightned of this so called bully these are grown women who are scared. I have stood up to this individual and said no more however her behavior became far worse to a point were I nearly broke. Now after much clearing and protection I feel I can carry on bringing in the light and to be part of the change that is needed I have had alot of synchronicity today with the right people been in the right place at the right time I know I am watched over by the angels to do this. Although I feel frightened I am confronting my fear full on and not letting the darkness hold on to control. Thankyou all for helping me when I needed you,

Lots of Love to you Ruthxx

All that way and you didn't feel the pull to come on the Five Gateways workshop this weekend? Smile

Ah I did not realize it was the workshop! Yes the pull is very strong I will know the way for my next trip to Glastonbury I'm sure it will be the start of many I will look forward to them and attending your workshops. My visit is well overdue I'm so excited!

Thank you so much for reposting this article on Facebook today so I found it. It resonates deeply with me and where I am at right now.

I am so grateful also for allt the openhearted comments, they are so inspiring and rewarding to read and give me deep insights. Rutht, thank you for sharing your story. I see myself in similar situations ...

I love Yulia's words: "When I was on my own, isolated ... I kept feeling all the things, even though external triggers were not there anymore. It's all inside! Other people just push the buttons and help reveal all those things. /.../ In the end of the day I always find that I am alone, me and my inner world to look at, acknowledge, handle, clean, clear, grow and make sure it evolves. Trying to place it in other people's hands only makes it stuck, stagnating and degrading into lower and lower vibration, so that I can see it better, in case I deny or avoid."

And Teresa's about the importance of self love: "People who have deep love, respect for themselves automatically have it for others are kind, compassionate and generally loving.It's the opposite of how society seems to depict self love i.e as having to be arrogant and completly in the ego.......and I do even see this subtely in spiritual love and light circles as well...."

I really find in my own life, handling the mirroring, that love and acceptance of oneself to be the key ... to be able to walk through life with open eyes.

Thank you Open and Trinity for the amazing work that you do.
Love Charlotte

Last night I crashed my car. It felt like the walls are closing in on me even more. My mind tells me I can't take anymore, I hate this path and I want to blame something but I can't believe it anymore. I can't help but feel sad and humiliated but I know there is something for me, a gift to see. I even have a hard time being still long enough wait for any answer. My mind tries to tell me I should be doing better then I wouldn't have created this but I know I am getting exactly what I need and there is no easy way out, no way out at all. Just in and thorough. I can appreciate the messages because I know I created it. I know this path is not easy and I know I have no other choice but to go forward, maybe with a new vehicle.

Oh dear Kim - my heart goes out to you <3

I crashed my car twice when I was at that place!
(not intentionally I might add!)

It's a great sign: time to 'break the set'.

Seriously - it means you're manifesting exactly what you need to see where you are. The car represents the 'old vehicle'.

And what have we got to fear by getting real? It's the old world of soft shoulders and delusion that we need to escape from - that's where the debilitation really is.

So, I say, 'break it down!'

Thank you Trinity, Open and Catherine. Your support and encouragement mean so much to me. I do feel different, something has shifted and it took the crash to push me where I needed to be. I most definitely feel I am to trading up to a higher expression of myself. Much gratitude for Openhand.

Kim , i can totally understand what u go through . As many others in this community , i also had a big number of crashes ( with Motorbykes but saved by Higher benevolence ) or accidents , drawning situation at the age of 5 , and the Biggest of all " the Tsunami in dec 2004 " . That one was the most unbeleivable experience of Higher Self expression i have ever been given to embody while been in the midst of that event . The shift of embodying the Higher self Power that IS came within a fraction of a second . The lower mind was completely unable to re-act the usual way and was brought to surrender very quickly to embrace Higher benevolence assistance . It was the most amazing states of Beingness expressed in the midst of a Huge Panic/ Chaotic / fear frequency around me . It was like i was not even able to hear the chaos around , because so focused on the Higher Self duty of helping the desabled ones around to be put in safer areas . No emotions arised at any given moment during that day , nothing , not even the fear of dying . It was like living purely the Highest expression in each moment , following each Higher pull to help anyone in difficulty . I realizd that night that i was in the Etheric body all the time . It was also one of the 7 rays in complete & full expression . The days that followed was back to the lower mind frequency in some ways ( feeling depressed !!! ) but that was meant to be as well . I could not understand why i was back to such feelings of Being . Family members and friends of course were worried ; they didn't know what exactly happened to me because we hadn't had any time to give news before the next day .
It felt like a miracle because after been barefoot for hours in the merky waters ( coming up to the belly ) & carrying desabled people in safer places ,i finally took time to check if there were no injuries on the feet sole area : There was absolutely no feet space injured at all . That state of fully Embodying Soul was the Miracle in action . Years later , i realized that event to be a shell braking experience and invitation to walk the Path ; a huge stepstone for Self Realization and Ascension . The day after the event , I received a strong intuition message : " U were supposed to be there " ; put in other terms : " The Soul planned that event without letting the mind know about it " . Wow , that made total sense . If i had being informed about the wave coming along , i would have probably never had the guts to be around that fisherman beach in Kerala . I was actually in " Amma 's ashram " which is located on a narrow piece of land between the sea and a large river . The huge ashram facilities are just 300 meters or 400 meters from the beach . No where to run away because of the river located on the other side .
So we were all embarqued to a huge building that is located across that river ; 16,000 people were taken in care by the Amma community of devotees : Incredible faith and trust could be felt in many of those living in that ashram ; the extreme of the situation amplified their commitment to stay calm , composed and serve others well being . I felt this is an absolutely first hand heart opening experience about gathering together for the same goal : putting our Energies together and help each other in times of great difficulties . I also realize that this is a training to see how i felt like to Be or Express during an extreme event within which many people lost lives or siblings , wifes , husbands , cousins and children . I crossed poeple who had allready drowned within the strong water currents . It was so fast i could not realize that it was just happening ; again no emotional drama took place inside at all . I left 2 friends on the beach to help within the community compound , drowned by a strong intuitive message . The day after , i went to look after them to see if they were still alive somehow and they were alive as well . From the 16,000 people present , nobody died , slightly injured at most . Unbeleivable protection was at work defenetly .
I am with you KIM in your process of shifting into a new Vehicle of Higher Expression . Aloha , Aum , Love and support .

Jean-Michel,

Thank you for sharing your amazing experiences about higher self expression. So inspiring. During times of much more minor crises and trauma than you experienced when others seemed to be losing their heads, I felt the veils of separation lift as I tapped into the power of Oneness -- enabling me to calm the chaos and direct appropriate action. We read and hear about so many stories of how people come together heroically during times of crises that seem to blast us out of what Open calls "the soft shoulder" to embrace our true power. x Catherine

What an amazing experience Jean-Michel, thank you so much for posting it. Its so wonderful that this can happen when there is an emergency and you are needed, having that instant connection with the divine to fulfil whatever your role is.
Much love Myra x

Thanks so much for sharing your incredible story Jean-Michel - so moving and touching. No wonder it's had such a profound effect on your life.

Wishing you well

Jean Michel, It was an honour to read about how you rescued and cared for so many people. Amazing how you dealt with it and how benevolent beings were probably with you. This situation and experience will be so useful for things to come. I have no idea how I would react in these circumstances, but hope I would also help others less able than me. With Love and Respect to you, Lisa X

"It was like i was not even able to hear the chaos around , because so focused on the Higher Self duty of helping the desabled ones around to be put in safer areas . No emotions arised at any given moment during that day , nothing , not even the fear of dying . It was like living purely the Highest expression in each moment , following each Higher pull to help anyone in difficulty ."

Your story keeps resonating in my heart, Jean-Michel. I chose to experience a disability at the age of six to clear karma from past life actions. As a result, I've felt vulnerable in certain situations when I've been unable to keep up with the able-bodied and was afraid to look for a helping hand in case it wasn't there. And there you were reaching out your hand -- beautiful, compassionate soul that you are. Thank you for touching and healing my heart so deeply. Much Love, Catherine
