Entities and what do do about them (including audio meditation)

Submitted by Trinity on Mon, 12/02/2013 - 11:39

Whether we like it or not, entities are everywhere in the 4th dimensional field around us. If you've been drawn to read this article then I imagine you have already experienced the challenges that having entities in your field might bring. It's a bit of a taboo subject in western culture; one of those subjects where people are a bit concerned about being labelled as 'crazy' or 'Xfiles-ish', so I felt to break the ice and bring a bit of light to the subject. I am not claiming to be the fountain of all knowledge on the subject, although, I do have a lot of experience working with them directly as part of my role in the spiritual evolution arena...

The term entity can be a bit confusing, so I'll draw a brief outline before focusing on the entities that people usually mean. There are three main types of entities; 1. The earth-bound spirit and 2. Higher dimensional beings 3. The non-human negative entity. We'll be primarily dealing with the latter category, although it feels helpful to introduce them all.

The main types of entities are:


    1. Earth bound spirit - this generally refers to a human being who was incarnated, yet didn't move on in spirit when their body passed away. They stay here in spirit form, until they are ready to move on. They are usually attached to form by fear of loss. Often bound to a specific place, unable to exist beyond it, they can be friendly, mischievous or down right malevolent. Earth bound spirits can at times be bothersome, although they engage with incarnated human beings very little. We won't be covering this type of entity in this article. I just felt to mention it to distinguish the difference.

    2. Higher dimensional beings - these are beings who’s consciousness is centred in the 4th density and higher. They sometimes have an interest in engaging with 3rd density beings, such as humans. They tend to differ from non-human negative entities, in that they each have an individual soul. They come in all shapes and forms, through multiple dimensions. Some higher dimensional beings are benevolent (e.g. angels), some are malevolent and others dance somewhere in between. If malevolent or manipulative in anyway they can influence and over-power a person in a more sophisticated way than the non-human, negative entity (below). Higher dimensional beings are complex. Manipulative ones often prey on psychic people who can ‘see’ beyond the veil, at which point it is common for controlling higher dimensional beings to present themselves as ‘benevolent’. They can be master tricksters. There is a huge ‘false-love-and-light’ movement in the spiritual world today; being totally manipulated and controlled by less than benevolent beings from this category.

    3. Non-human negative entities - these are what people typically refer to when they say they have an entity in their field and this is what we will be working with throughout the rest of this article.

    These are the entities that often possess people, by living within their hosts energy body. These entities act like parasites (often completely unbeknownst to their host). Some people have a visual psychic ability that permeates into the 4th density and are able to 'see' them, reporting all sorts of descriptions, shapes and sizes. People commonly mention tentacles or hooks that leech on to a persons energy field. Their most common food source is emotional energy. The do not have individual soul although they may act in individual ways. They have a collective group soul and consciousness and exist as part of a hive consciousness.

    Most of them aren't actually malevolent, they are simply fulfilling a parasitical survival instinct; they are just hungry. They farm their food (emotions) in the same way that human beings farm cattle. They have learned to become very skillful at turning on the emotional tap of their human host, so that whenever they get hungry they can drink in emotional energy on demand. They home in on any emotional vulnerabilities and imbalances that a person has and tend to hook in a tentacle right on that touch point. As soon as they are hungry, they push the button and slurp up the emotional nectar that begins to flow.

Why do I have an entity in my field?

So you have a parasitic entity in your field? You know something isn’t right? It’s draining your energy? Activating your emotions? Feeding off you? Making you ill?

In essence, it's only there because you allow it to be there. Gulp! OK, so it may be a subconscious allowing, yet, the power is within you. The entity doesn't want to be seen. It has a vested interest in being invisible. It wants to co-exist without its host ever knowing it is there. It doesn't want to starve.

Who is particularly vulnerable to entity attack?

As long as you are a human being (Homo Sapiens) you are vulnerable to attack. It doesn’t escape any of us. Although as we evolve and become more and more present, as we become fully enlightened, then it becomes much more difficult for them to deceive.

I’ve particularly noticed that those who have taken drugs or medication or do things that anaesthetise themselves (TV, alcohol, excessive video gaming) tend to have the biggest entity issues. With consciousness blasting drugs (psychedlics etc), it seems to be that a person goes from a normal state – has their awareness blasted open – missing several important and necessary evolutionary steps out in between. A blind spot is created where the missing steps are. This is the place that entities slip through the door. It’s a blind spot, so usually unnoticed by the person who’s taken the drug. This can last a long time completely unnoticed (years/lifetimes). Medication that dampens and suppresses, gives an entity the perfect opportunity to feed off the emotion that is being repressed by the drugs.

What to do about it?

So, here’s the key that unlocks the door.

There is something within you that it is latching on to. It will be a blockage, a distortion or a button. The entity can only exist in your field if there is something for it to hook onto.

One of the most powerful things you can do is to take full responsibility for the fact that it is there because you have given it permission to be there.

Entities feed off emotions of all sorts. What are your emotional triggers? Do you experience any of the emotions in the list below?

    Blaming others, anger, sense of victimisation,
    paranoia, fear, guilt, feeling deprived, worry,
    feeling sorry for yourself, bothered by being lonely,
    self-depreciation, feeling unworthy/not good enough,
    lack of motivation, insecurity, impatience, resentment,
    jealousy, depression, feeling disgusted, neediness,
    feeling unappreciated, feeling irritated, feeling trapped,
    head in the clouds, denial of darkness, avoidance of reality,
    everything's got to be perfect, controlling...



If you recognise any of these emotions as an issue for you (i.e. a recurring theme in your life) and are reading this article, it is likely that you have an entity feeding into them and milking your emotions for food.

Acknowledgement and acceptance is the first step to self-empowerment. The next thing is to know that entities are normal; most people have them in their field without realising it. The world, in fact, is a large cauldron of emotion, the perfect feeding ground for these pesky pests!

Work on your own stuff

The most important thing that you can do is work on your stuff. It really is that simple. Once you remove the food source (charged emotional distortions) then they have nothing to grasp onto and fall away.

It's also vitally important that we don't deny the emotion. Because denial and suppression of self also creates the 'grey' areas where they hide. What we're looking for is the authentic - non-loaded - emotional expression of self, that which is aligned with the source. It is the distortions of these that the entities feed off.

People can and do remove entities, which sounds like an ideal solution. It can work temporarily. HOWEVER - unless you deal with the energy that invited it in the first place, you will simply draw another entity to you again and again and again UNTIL you release the attachment to that emotion from within yourself that draws it in. No one else can do this for you. It is part of the spiritual journey of self realisation, back to who you truly are. Be inspired and supported by others (catalysts and empaths can highlight them in your field), yet know that you have to walk the path with your own two feet.

    Release the trapped emotion; let go of the attachment to the emotion and there will be no place for an entity to attach to you. Most people have to do this multiple times for different issues, over a period of time (and through various levels of vibrational consciousness). There isn't a quick fix solution. It’s a powerful way to catalyse the spiritual journey though, as you create the space for higher consciousness to flood in where you were once blocked (indeed using this "Opposing Consciousness" as a mirror to your own limitation, is a powerful path to mastery).

What else might help?

Look at specific spiritual work that helps you to honour and release distortions, inner tension or emotional blockages. Whatever work you do, the key is to consciously bring your attention to your blockages. Sound work, movement and any work that releases thwarted energy can all help if you are conscious whilst working with it.

Some might find guided meditation helpful. We have a collection of different meditations for catalysing the spiritual journey on our audio page, all of which help to let go of attachments. I thought it might be helpful to record a meditation that specifically deals with the release of inner blockages in order to cleanse your field of entities. So, especially for this article here is my latest guided meditation:
http://www.openhandweb.org/releasing_entities_meditation

Remember that the key to releasing entities from your field is to release your own blockages, so that they don’t have anything to hook on to – anything else is just temporary.

Further reading on related subjects

If you've found that exploring this subject brings up more questions, then I can recommend several insightful, indepth articles on alien intervention and removing energetic implants, by Open here...

Trinity that was so beautiful. I had a very draining day and lay down to listen to this as soon as I got home. It was like listening to an angel and I felt light and connected to the divine by the time it was over. Thank you. xo

Thanks for such a clear article on the subject, especially the part about the type of emotions these entities attach too.

I notice these ones in particular within myself at the moment..

Blaming others, anger, sense of victimization
Guilt
Feeling like I am a bad person/self judgement
Irritation
And a sense of things needing to be perfect
A feeling that I know nothing, cannot connect to true authentic self

I was wondering how exactly we interrupt the impulse that carries us into this conditioned response when there are several things that seem to be happening at once...

For example I feel angry and want to blame someone else
I can be aware that I am doing it just before the conditioned response but the impulse to do it is too strong so it happens anyway
Then I can be honest with anger and know it is my projection
Yet then I feel guilt, feel bad about myself and beat up on myself for being a bad person and not being perfect, or not good enough and I should know better...the self judgment comes in

It seems like it happens in layers, moving from one emotion to the next until I feel completely dis-empowered and it seems impossible to interrupt the original impulse. It's so hard, especially when the self judgment comes in, is it a case of just witnessing without judgement? But that we make 'mistake' after 'mistake' until we can eventually interrupt the original impulse? All of it seems so complicated sometimes that I just feel like I can't do it and want to give up.

Also lately I feel like I know nothing, like when I hear people saying they are connected to their inner knowing I feel like I have no idea. Like I'm not sure I can trust this inner knowing because I don't know where it's coming from, a distortion or what. Or is this all a part of learning to trust, that it's more vulnerable somehow to honestly say that I really don't know as then at least it's not an intellectual knowing?

I don't know!

Thanks

Can you find time every day to consciously be with this, before it all cascades and gets out of hand Gwen? It's not an easy process. If I were in the situation you describe, then I'd take time daily to consciously work with the energies that owned me. I'd sit and meditate especially for that purpose. If nothing felt problematic at the time, I'd simply focus on cleansing and clearing with stillness.

By doing this it would then mean when the issues did arise, I'd be in a better space to be able to deal with them (or in the case of outward blame, have the energy to hold it and deal with it within me rather than projecting it outwards). As the emotions surfaced, I would have created more space inside of myself earlier in the day, for soul. This would help... although it does take commitment to the process.

Hi Gwen (and others who might experience similar),

Yes, we're going to want to "interrupt the impulse to project" especially as it's projecting negative energy. But it's going to be very hard to do this if we've not gone deep into the energy that causes it and worked with it consistently (as Trinity suggested). Because the entities will be tied into implants, and these into emotional/mental/karmic energy, as soon as the energy is activated, it wells up like a tidal wave.

So you have to go deep into the energy, feel it deeply, through meditation and invocation of the energy. But you also really have to want to do it.
I sense you've been circling around that question for some time. The path is there, but how much do you really want to walk it?

Best wishes

Open

Thank you for your replies. I think for some reason I was under the illusion that it was enough to just be the observer of ourselves in the moment. But I have steadily come to realize that those impulses to behave a certain way seem to flood in so strongly it seems impossible to interrupt them. Maybe it's because there is so much in spiritual circles about 'all you have to do is become the observer' but it seems that is somehow not enough and that working deeper with the issues even when nothing is coming up is necessary as you say. It all seems so deeply ingrained this stuff and I guess the entities make me feel powerless to confront on a deeper level as it seems a huge ball of confusion takes over with all sort of thoughts, like how can I know even this 'walking the path' stuff is real. But I guess I am responsible to allowing these influences in my field so its not really about them but me and my own distortions that must be worked through. It seems very clever the way these emotions come in layers to dis empower. And yes I agree, I have been circling around these things for quite some time now, as you well know. I think I also become convinced that it is impossible to move past the place I am at, that I just don't have what it takes and then the feeling sorry for myself bit comes in! It's really rather boring now.

I wanted to ask,I've met people who never really seem to project or get angry at all, as if numb and can't connect to any real feelings or emotions. It would be easy to think maybe they had moved past all of it...but something tells me its more like they aren't even able to access feelings. What is happening in this case in regards to entities etc?

Thanks for your time

Gwen

Maybe try what I suggested above :) it does take real commitment.

Firstly thanks Gwen for being so open. I can really identify with a lot of what you describe. The bit about it getting boring made me smile as I too feel that when i have downward spiralled through layers of emotion and concluded that I don't have this inner power that others do.
So Chris when you say invoke the energy and go deep into it do you mean call up one of the emotions- say guilt for example - and really feel it? But then what next?- is it enough to just let the feeling dissipate? I know the open way is to let the light flood in but this doesn't tend to happen when i allow myself to feel negative emotions deeply i just end up feeling like Gwen describes. Daily work i am sure would be of benefit, hopefully i will find some time for that soon.
Jude

Hi Delfin,

Yes, I mean to invoke the feeling and really go with it - guilt for example. But not to just 'let it dissipate'. When you've invoked the feeling, here is the real opportunity, the real 'gateway'. It's through this feeling we're being invited to pass.

If you can get to know the feeling intimately, without needing it to go away, then you become 'as-one' with it. It's like "oh yes, there's that feeling, it's totally me. I don't know myself as anything other than that feeling." Then it's like you become so close to the feeling, you define no separation from it.

You see if we can't truly accept an aspect like this, then we establish ourselves as an identity, a point of reference, that is separate from it. And if you are separate from any aspect of the universe, then you are just plain separate!

So you have to allow yourself to surrender into becoming as one with the experience, until there is no separation. You're just it, and what's more, okay with being it. You don't blame yourself for it, you just accept it.

Don't expect it'll simply just vanish at the click of the finger - it won't. Some of these things are deep seated and eons old. We have to learn patience and persistence, keep sitting with it, keep working with it, keep accepting it and thereby yourself.

Then, when you're knowingly okay with it, look for the sense that you can penetrate through it with pure awareness - that which you truly are - the source. Just be that awareness through it.

When you're the awareness through it, then you'll activate soul. You don't have to intentionally manifest this, it will simply happen. Then watch as the soul arises in some guise and 'jump on the band-wagon' so the speak - give your attention to what is arising. It could be a vision or a feeling, or some kind of expression. This is the liberation of the soul through a previously unrealised aspect.

Open

dear Gwen,
one piece from what you wrote sticks out for me ... you say you feel sorry for yourself.
Feeling is not the same as emotion, (clearly), and often i see how we mix up the pure energy currents in ourselves with more 3d "colours" that stain them. Like a crystal clear river, one sees the currents better by pouring paint in it... But what really flows is not the paint, but the river... In this density we are often too desensitized, for different reasons, to actually feel the real current, and get stuck wondering about the cavalcade of colourings... But if we sit and wait patiently enough we do get a sense of non-emotionalised energy flow (which is really far from not "feeling"!).

So the way i see it is that there is an intital emergence of pure (purer) energy (aspect of the soul) but then in order to relate to it in the density of the here and now, we often fall into emotionalising patterns, and mistake the energy for the emotion.

(Honestly, even to get in touch with emotions is a big thing for many, i mean to be aware of the presence of an emotion yet not to get lost in it, but rather to use emotions to help grab the underlying scent or echo or subtle feel of an energy. And maybe this is partly because because of the fear of entites... as entities really feed on this emotionality, these are like "food colourings", to me -- joke).

Specifically to what you say about feeling "sorry for yourself", i'd ask if you can resonate with feeling a deeper layer sadness for smtg else than your self?

There really is a deep deep sadness-like energy (and not emotion, if i could make this clear up there?) active at the moment, and i do hope it will bring forth something truly important in relation to our place on earth now. It has to do with being messed up with, with being used and abused, and eventually cut off form a once unbridled strength. These are very-very deep layers, so deep most don't even dare to go there as the fact that these layers would even exist (in us) simply is not even recognised in our world.

But there is great power wanting to burst from those depths. And i do hope we'll find the way down there as well as back too (if directions make any sense at all....)
love, Réka

oh, i'm reading only now what Open wrote before me... haha funny...

yes, it's like being one with it but not lost in it. what a paradox.

to me the metaphor of the paint and river always helps. than (for me) there is no separation, no denial of it, and yet the awareness of how the surface layers evaporate... like the current clearing itself of colourings?

And by not struggling, and by not drowning into the emotions, the patience, the surrender and the openness remains to let the pure energy enter (Open says, pure awareness).

Where i feel slightly different from how Open puts it is that i feel washed through by "pure awareness" in these moments, rather than me penetrating with pure awareness. But i think we say the same thing.

Reka you said...

    "Feeling is not the same as emotion"

This is so important - yet I see I overlooked it.
I would say at least 50% of the time people say "they are feeling 'this'" what they've really doing is thinking about the consequences of 'this'. Perhaps another 40% of the time people are having an emotion about their thoughts. And perhaps only 10% of time are people truly going into the source consciousness.

I can't justify the exact numbers of course, but through countless observations, I'd say I have the right order of magnitude.

We have to get through the surface reactions and retractions to truly feel.

Open

I've read and re-read this thread. I am not sure I'm getting it though. Really feeling the energy as that...recognizing that the "emotion" is something that's been created...a story-line that solidifies the energy...right? Surrendering allows this to dissipate and in doing so we allow the flow...in essence removing a blockage? Am I on the right track?

I'd say you're on exactly the right tack Joann.

To me, the 'true feeling' is the true experience of the soul. What happens in the bodymind are that thought and emotion are meant to be the 'managed' (but not controlled) outward expression of the soul. That's when you're in your true power. There's an arising of soul which is felt, experienced, aligned with and then amplified through aligned thought and emotion.

That's what the process Openhandway is all about (which we've also called openway). It's opening a space through thought and emotion, facilitating the arising of soul, recognising it and aligning with it. Then giving everything to the outward expression of it. It's not very understood at all at this time. If it was, then the Openhandway process would be extremely popular - because it's very powerful in terms of accessing authentic self.

What we're actually looking for in terms of 'true feeling', is a spontaneous and authentic arising of one of the seven rays of consciousness. The blockage will have been formed around a 'fragment' of one of these. Where the ego has owned it in some way. So we have to break apart the ego's ownership, feel that essence of soul, and let the amplification of it flow through.

Yes it takes a great deal of practice - constant practice. Many people don't have that level of commitment right now, which explains why it's hard for people generally to recognise the truth in what's being offered here. But I continue to trust and 'hope' that one day it will attain greater understanding and appeal.

Open

I worked with that in my meditation today...very, very powerful! Definitely a new way of working for me and I am excited to do this again. Thank you Open.

I feel to add that it's all seemingly easy to sum it up and talk about these processes in such an intellectualised and polished way, but in fact it's a totally non-rational functioning, a way of being... in this respect it's not really like a concrete meditation, "sit down, and work with it", but more like our whole life: every single moment of it, especially the most sincere ones, like getting out of bed in the morning with bad breath and aching muscles, or losing temper in face of a "mirror" we drew to ourselves (like friends, family, wives, husbands, children, colleagues).

It's like continuously asking, how does my storyline (aka ego structure, emotional distortions) affect the quality of life experience? Who do i blame for my storyline? How does my body hold my storyline? How is the weight of my step, the sound of my voice, my ability to love, trust, forgive, expand, grow, heal and nourish myself affected by my storyline?

Am i able to see myself clearly? Am i aware of my vibe, the energy i project out into the world? Am i aware of my body language? Can i feel the expression on my face?

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

Most of the time i can't grab the "thread" (the "clear current" rather than the emotionally coloured calamity) straight away, of course. But it takes a long-long time, including a great amount of introspection and retrospection. It takes practice. And as Trin said up there, a great deal of commitment. And patience i'd add. And self acceptance. Trust that it will all reveal itself, as they say, in "time".

A quote:

“In the absence of presence there is only that repetitive mental noise, and part of that mental noise is the story of me. It’s the problematic story that is hoping that at some point in the future it will no longer be problematic -- not realizing that what it calls ‘future’ has no actual existence.” – Eckhart Tolle

It's the ego that wants so desperately to "know" and control it all (and NOW). But the way things seem to work for me, and maybe for most of us, is that the soul has a delicate and soft murmur only, we need to fine tune our ears to it.

It's hardly audible. It's ungrabbable, it's like the "X factor", you can't really name it, yet you feel it. Or as the Japanese artists speak of the Wabi Sabi... (as my dear friend summed it up beautifully recently: "the kind of beauty that can bring about spiritual longing, profound aesthetic consciousness that t.r.a.n.s.c.e.n.d.s. appearance; can be felt but rarely verbalized").

It's really about learning to see the invisible...

Another quote:

“If you begin to understand what you are
without trying to change it,
what you are undergoes a transformation.”
– J. Krishnamurti

So the energy (soul, pure awareness, current) speaks in non-verbal, a universal language (shared with animals, for instance) and can only be felt.

And often it can only be put together through the conscious experience of a great number of life situations, but eventually (through conscious introspection of those moments, and continuous retrospection of what we filtered out of them) one develops a growing sense for it, and "in time" it does get easier to separate the wheat form the chaff even right there in the heat of a story (life situation)...

and that's when we start really living (i'd say) ;)

and oh well, i cherish each single moment when i succeed... as most of the time i don't. but when i do, those are my blessed, glory days... otherwise i just keep on stumbling ever more gracefully over the line of the story :P

this has got a bit long, thanks for reading...

love 2u all

i feel this beautiful clip just sums it up all - far better than me (in wabi sabi manner)
hope you enjoy as much as i did

Hello everyone

Thanks to everyone commenting here. Thanks Jude for your comment about me being open, actually it feels like I have been denying some of the darkness I don't want to or know how to accept for sometime! Especially the projection bit! But as I said I get bored with myself and there are many things I am afraid to do or places within I am afraid to go, I see now how I bargain with myself in certain ways, as if I want to work on my distortions as long as they aren't too inconvenient! I can now laugh at this part of me as it feels like it's been sneaking around in the background hiding in the shadows somehow, and the mind constructs all sort of reasons and projects and whatever else in an effort to hide the truth from myself. I know I have come a little further though as I don't get so offended when the mirror shows me clearly how I am being. Something that feels important though is I can feel a growing kind of energy that tells me to just work on these distortions, stop thinking about everything else, consequences and trying to figure stuff out so much. I know I want to move past these emotions that own me, but as Open says, how much? I have been trying to feel this out. To try and get clear and just focus on working with the distortions that's all. I am finding it hard to articulate here exactly what I want to say, but hope it's coming out ok.

Reka, yes that is a huge point! The difference between emotions and feeling, again I struggle to find the right words except to say the emotions feel like a surge of charged energy and occasionally I break through to the subtle feelings beneath it all. I also see more and more how the way I feel about something is connected to a much larger picture, like you say about there being a lot of sadness active at the moment so thanks for bringing my awareness to that, but all I can do is work with it within I guess.

Now that sneaky part of me is saying that 'most people don't ever break through all this stuff' as if bargaining with myself that I don't really have to! But if I turn that around it also helps me to not be so hard on myself that I just can't seem to get it just yet. It really does take a deeper commitment than I ever knew possible.

This part stands out from me from what Open wrote earlier;

"If you can get to know the feeling intimately, without needing it to go away, then you become 'as-one' with it. It's like "oh yes, there's that feeling, it's totally me. I don't know myself as anything other than that feeling. Then it's like you become so close to the feeling, you define no separation from it."

Without needing it to go away! This seems the hardest part for me...so deep work to do then.

Hugs to everybody

Gwen

oooh this is resonating in my awareness in this moment - the paradox of being one with the feeling and also not becoming or completely identifying with the emotion. I also don't really feel like I get this yet. Open, your comment of becoming so intimate with the feeling that we are one with it - my soul lit up at that one. And it seems you are not talking about becoming one with the emotion, but with the feeling that is deeper than it? I feel like there is a jewel here (me!), and I'd like to unearth it. I also feel like the power of emotion often diverts me from the deeper connection. Or perhaps it is more of the way toward it?

Yes it's a challenge and a conundrum to unravel indeed!

Sometimes people will indeed be expressing the soul, even if they don't fully realise it. And as the soul arises through the bodymind, then that will come with emotion. And it does become possible to trace the emotion back to get more of a sense of the original soul impulse and what that was like. It's like using a pointer to the soul.

The main point is that whislt someone is still acting as a separated identity - a false self or ego - then programs are causing the thoughts and emotions to run, separately of the soul and without management by the soul. So it becomes hard even to sense the soul in the beginning.

So we have to get into these emotions, soften into the tightness they cause, open the internal space and have the courage to wait for the soul to arise. This is not at all easy: firstly it can only be done exactly in the moment when the soul is being masked. The compulsion to react according to how you've always done will be strong. Maybe someone (like a partner) expects and needs the old behaviour. The sense of obligation will be strong, especially when you're totally uncertain exactly what the alternative is that you're looking for.

It's like jumping off a cliff and not knowing where you'll land - but if you give it a chance, before you know it you'll be flying!

Open

The emotions are "a pointer to the soul." "..the false self (causes) the thoughts and emotions to run" (oh my yes!), "..have the courage to wait for the soul to arise," "...it can only be done in exactly the moment when the soul is being masked." These comments were all sweet points of light for me.

I do feel/understand the importance of the constant now of this way of being, and also of the patient openness for the soul's expression (loved that). Going back to Reka's river image, I see the blockages like sticks that get caught on something along the bank, and if they aren't returned to flow in that moment, they will naturally attract more blockages until a little dam builds up and the flow is painfully inhibited. I also am aware that when I allow what I like to call my big being (soul) to speak, to come through, the "problem" associated with the emotion or experience is no longer a problem. It is just an experience, and maybe a pointer, but a perfect one because it is pointing to where I want to go, or more accurately who I am.
