Yesterday here at Eden Rise we worked on the 'Transmutation of Distorted Behviours'. What do I mean by this?

People learn on the spiritual path that certain behaviours are not 'spiritually correct' and therefore would want to distance themselves from them. Behaviours such as manipulation and control, timidity and the victim mentality, inflexibility or lack of compassion. Being aloof and ungrounded, being frustrated and angry.

I agree, such behaviours don't serve deep sense of peace and rightness of being. But it is also self defeating and derailing simply to intentionally 'ditch' the behaviours by trying to manifest some other way of being. Or by overriding them and dissolving them out. Why is this self derailing?

A 'distortion' is exactly that. It is a distortion of truth. Or rather a distortion of a turthful soul expression that just came through in a distorted way. For example if you get frustrated and angry, it might be that a strong willful energy of the soul is wanting to come through, but is not finding an accurate way to express. Maybe there's reticence and self-consciousness about letting it through in a positive way?

By paying close attention to the kinds of distortions people exhibit and express, it's been possible to detail typical distortions and how you might transmute them into a priceless soul gift. Priceless because this is pure alchemy, like changing base metal to gold. And it will have a powerfully positive effect on your beingness and then your life.

Plus you no longer have to beat yourself up about having spiritually unacceptable behaviours. Neither do you need to supress them. You let them come through and express, but then work to transmute them into something positive.

So what are the typical distortions and there corresponding soul gifts?

Here at Openhand we work with the 7 rays of consciousness as being the constituent frequency vibrations of the soul. The typical distortions will each be a distortion of a particular ray. So what you're actually looking to do with any distortion is unleash aligned expression of that particular ray.

Here then are the 7 rays, their corresponding distortions and the gifts that you can work to transmute them to instead...

Ray 1: purposeful creative will Ray 1 is the driving sense of purpose to create. It is the manifestation of the divine masculine principle throughout the universe. From the place of separation, it is that undeniable inner will to find and create a higher level of harmony both within ourselves and between all sentient beings. It causes us to challenge and break apart the status quo which may be holding us in a lower level of realisation. The Ray 1 inspires life’s motivational leaders.
Distortions: controlling, manipulative, frustrated, anxious, up tight, lacking trust
Gifts: passion, commitment, courage, will power and tenacity

Ray 2: surrendering unconditional love Ray 2 initiates the impulse of unconditional love for life. It is the manifestation of the divinely feminine principle of surrendered acceptance throughout the universe. It is the empathising compassion that willingly embraces, does not judge nor need to change the inherent imperfection in all sentient life and situations. Ray 2 strongly inspires the selfless servants of life.
Distortions: dissolving, dithery, timidity, ineffectual, clinging, victim mentality
Gifts: unconditionally loving, acceptance, non-judgmental, empthaising, supportive, community building

Ray 3: interpreting authentic reality Ray 3 harnesses and processes higher abstract wisdom delivering it in a form to provide a clear interpretation of our current, authentic reality. In other words, it’s how we know what’s really real. People with strong Ray 3 influence notice the natural patterning in life bringing the formless into form in such a way that can be understood and appreciated by many. Ray 3 inspires life’s translators, creative artists and mathematicians.
Distortions: intense, self absorbed, complex, self doubting, strongly vascillating
Gifts: observant, aware, articulate, astute, attention to detail

Ray 4: harmonising through right resolution Ray 4 is the divine rationalising energy which helps us find right resolution with our environment and other sentient life. It is the ray impulse which blends passion with compassion. It provides the discernment to confront unjust situations in a non judgmental way. Its purpose is to break apart the lower harmony to find a more equitable higher one. People with highly active Ray 4 tend to be life’s diplomats, politicians and teachers.
Distortions: hypocritical, dissolving, dithery, procrastinating
Gifts: Compromising, truth honouring, bridging, altruistic, patient, persuasive

Ray 5: realising abstract higher wisdom The Ray 5 enables us to hold the infinite complexities of the universe as pure knowing within our beingness. This ‘science’ is abstract, all encompassing and rather than realised, is more sensed, as an art form, like poetry in perpetual motion. Ray 5 enables us to attune to the universal flow and harness it for co-creative exploration, deeper understanding and further evolution. The Ray 5 animates life’s scientists and creative business leaders.
Distortions: Box like, limited, rigid, inflexible, lacking imagination
Gifts: logical, business like, intellectual, all-knowing, intelligent, solution finding

Ray 6: yearning self expression Ray 6 inspires us stay continually focussed on our life’s purpose: to realise, unfold and express who we really are. It generates commitment and devotion to our cause, radiating our soul in all its brilliant colour. The Ray 6 provides the unquenchable driving force to express our innate qualities and inspire others to shine their inner light too. Humanity’s philosophers, spiritual leaders and performing artists are all driven by the Ray 6 influence.
Distortions: aloof, egotisitcal, self-righteous, narcissistic
Gifts: expressive, liberational, idealistic, charming, charismatic

Ray 7: shaping synchronistic magic Ray 7 provides the ingredient of pure magic on our life’s journey. If we are able to master our inner distortions and pause just long enough in the drama of life, then we can open up to spontaneous, synchronistic and co-creative magic. Thereby we catalyse and initiate the surrounding field for the maximum benefit and upliftment of all. In this way, Ray 7 inspires life’s ‘magicians’ and entrepreneurs.
Distortions: ungrounded, disconnected from 3D reality, New Agey
Gifts: spontaneous, trusting, risk taking, entrereneurial

So if you resonate, I urge you to explore some typical distortions that you might be expressing and work to transmute them into their corresponding soul gifts. For sure, you'll find it deeply alchemical!
