Are You IN or OUT?

By August 19, 2019 No Comments

I think of some words from the opening remarks from that old 1960’s Star Trek series, “..to boldly go where no man has gone before.” Who needs outer space exploration when there’s already plenty of exploring within your own body, mind and Soul/Heart? We’re raised to go ‘outward’ for help whenever something occurs. We’re told to ‘seek professional help’ when in all sorts of troubles. [Don’t get me wrong. If all of the sudden you’re having major chest pains get medical help ASAP. Don’t be stupid. Use discernment.] We’re raised to think, for the most part, that we can’t do it ourselves. ‘It’– meaning handling life’s circumstances as they occur. We’re raised to seek power. Seek ‘out there’ for answers. Look for that book with all the answers. Buy all the ‘spiritual’ gizmos and gadgets to help your life.
But there’s one problem. You’re never happy and satisfied. You’re always looking for more. What’s that definition of ignorance? To keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect different results? So if looking ‘out there’ is a never ending quest of unsatisfying answers, then what?
A suggestion….go the other way. WITHIN……. Within yourself. First and foremost, get back in touch with your Heart. Learn to feel again. Some of us have to relearn how to feel with our hearts again. We’ve become so busy protecting them, because of past heartaches, that we’ve forgotten how to feel again. And I mean REALLY feel…not think you know how to still feel. Really get in touch with your Heart. How? Remember how you use to love whomever or whatever? A past romance? The smell of your favorite thing baking in the oven? Your favorite pet? A rainbow after a rain? The tender kiss of a loved one? Just recall what that felt like. And then try an experiment. Take that feeling and apply it to yourself. How does that feel? Grateful or disdainful? Do you feel worthy of being loved? Of loving yourself? Or can you even do it? Chances are, like most of us at the start of our journey, you’re not that comfortable with it.
Where does one go from there? Take a look at it. Why are you not comfy? When in your life did that mindset start? Not to get all New Agey and all, but usually everyone’s ‘stuff’ originates from childhood. I found when I started to take a look at those patterns in life I didn’t care for, and followed the patterns into the past, they always took me into my childhood. All of the programming and conditioning, all of the ‘free will thinking’ that was learned, any fears, phobias, reactions….all of it originated from when I was a very young whipper snapper. Can we blame our parents and teachers for raising us this way? Not really. It’s not their fault because they were raised the same way. They didn’t know any better.
Your Heart always has the answers. Start feeling with your Heart again. Treat yourself and meet your inner child. Get to know her/him again. Many people are afraid to do this journey. It’s confronting. It reveals our shadow aspects. It requires honesty. It requires persistence. It requires patience to listen to our inner child’s needs and unexpressed feelings. And in time, we find ourselves reframing our perspectives of past hurts and heartaches to healthier ones. We find little “lessons”. We start to rediscover and feel the Love within. We rediscover the God source as we remove the layers of hurts and heartaches from our past.
A quick personal experience: A few years ago, through Self-Unification and Transcodes, I did my first Inner Child transmission. After closing my eyes and recalling heartfelt feelings with the intention of meeting “little Bryan”, there was 5 yr. old Bryan standing in front of me. Shy. Not sure what to do. I greeted him and asked him if he’d like to sit beside me and talk. He began sharing stories of perceived past ‘wrongs’ at his age that mom and dad did. He eventually sat on my lap and I held him as we cried in each other’s arms. I remember telling ‘little Bryan’, “They (my parents) didn’t know any better Bryan. They truly did love you. They were trying the best they could with whatever they knew at that time. They always loved you. They just didn’t know any better.”
After that session I felt like a million pounds was lifted off my shoulders. I felt noticeably lighter. These days, because of having done several sessions with ‘little Bryan’, I’m more understanding of other people. Eventually I realized all of those other people have their own ‘little Bryans, or Berthas, or Gertrudes, or Sams..within them…just waiting to be acknowledged and loved again.
So…… are you In or Out?
