"Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes. The light is in them now."
A Course in Miracles
Every experience is stored as a memory in the subconscious mind. Traumatic or challenging experiences may also be “charged” with emotion, negative thoughts and limiting beliefs. Unless we find a way to release these charges, we constantly drag them from our past into our now. These unseen energetic patterns hold a vibration that attract people and experiences with a similar vibration. This is known as the Universal Law of Attraction - like attracts like.
And, in addition to the "baggage" we drag from our past into our now, we can and often do, receive energetic imprints from those around us. We take on the energetic charges from our family and friends and even from the collective thoughts and beliefs of the people in our culture, religion and living in the area in which we live. Although these patterns are clearly not ours, we identify with them and they soon become part of who we think we are.
In addition to creating unpleasant experiences, these energetic charges can become trapped in our physical body causing stress and weakness, leading to illness and injury.
The cause of all conflict and chaos that appears to be "out there" is always within us. All physical manifestions are merely a reflection of our previous energetic vibration - the "stuff" we unknowingly carry around with us. As within, so without.
Trying to change the physical world is as effective as trying to change our reflection in a moirror. We simply can't do it - we must smile first before the mirror smiles back! The only real solution is to change our inner condition which includes our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. But sometimes if feels like our thoughts, beliefs and feelings are in control of us.
Energetic clearing is a fantastic way to dissolve years of collected energetic patterns that can make it feel impossible to clearly focus our thoughts and feelings on the positive things we desire. Once we start clearing these patterns, it is much easier to become the conscious creator we were meant to be. Our energetic baggage is no longer sending it's messages to the universe requesting similar patterns, and we are more able to consciously direct our thoughts and feelings.
When this happens, old ways of being effortlessly drop away, healing and harmony are restored, and our lives will explode with new opportunites.
And, if practiced over time, clearing can be a gentle, but very effective, method for waking-up while still in the world.
"Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you. For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."
Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas
"Love, happiness, and peace can't be found outside. To find these things, we must let go of what blocks them - our ego-mind. If we try to fix something on the outside, instead of knowing who we are from the inside, we continue to suffer."
Eliza Mada Dalian, In Search of the Miraculous - Healing into Consciousness
"Practically all of your mind is unconscious to you, just like almost all of an iceberg is underneath the surface of the water."
Pursah in The Disappearance of the Universe
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CLEAR?
"While it is best to turn completely in the direction of what you want and what feels good, giving focus purely to that, at times we are so out of touch with our own energetic vibration that we do not even realize we have resentment still present within us. It becomes part of our daily life and our identity. Often we have ingrained beliefs that impede our focus on the positive in the first place. This is when the process of turning in the direction of the negative for the purpose of releasing is beneficial. In this process, the purpose is not to dwell in the negative situation - it is to become aware of it and then immediately align with the solution. In this process, you are initiating these negative vibrations in order to experience the conscious, deliberate shifting of them. You are causing them to shape shift with the power of your own focus."
We are all interconnected beings. Our bodies are separate, but our minds are joined in the One, Universal Mind.
In reality, there is no space or time, so concepts like distance, past, present, and future are easily transcended.
Physical form is energy vibrating at different rates. Energy is projected by thought. Therefore, thought = form. To change the form (our physical life/experience), we must change our thoughts.
Thoughts and beliefs in alignment with Source, create peace of mind, joy and contentedness and attract positive experiences.
Thoughts and beliefs out of alignment with Source create stress, worry, anxiety, etc. and attract conflict, illness, and other problems.
