ERIC RAINES: “Strengthening and Balancing the Kidneys Brings Clarity and Power”

The Kidney Meridian (KI) is regarded as the most important well of Vital Life Force in the body.

The adrenal glands (cortex and medulla) cap the kidneys, making the meridian and organ health play a major role in endocrine balance as the adrenals supply a wide range of hormones to the body and are fed by the same pathways as the kidneys

The kidneys filter the blood, pulling toxins from the body to excrete them through the urine and play a crucial part in balancing fluid levels in conjunction with the large intestine.

Energetically, I find traumatic energy reacting with panic and fear stuck in the lower back, echoing inside of the icy pang of coppery fear that rushes up to the heart/chest, clenching the belly muscles close to the spine.

Fight-or-flight states of being strip the adrenal cortex of nutrients, energy and regeneration ability. Extended periods of this state begin to viscerally change the structure of the brain, which is why we see soldiers coming back from war quite literally different people. They no longer have the same neural wiring or chemistry (this can be reversed, we just need to learn how to train the body out of fight-or-flight).

I am finding more and more that we can do incredible miracles on the energetic and mental levels that revolutionize the body, mind and spirit, but direct attention to the body is crucial in this ascension ride.

This is a quick, powerful exercise to begin moving and strengthening the natural pump/flow connections the kidneys have to the rest of the body and nervous system, just make sure to not overextend yourself and if you feel any pain, use less pressure or movement until it is not painful and gently continue. Make sure to drink plenty of water as well.

Strengthening and balancing the kidneys brings clarity and power to cognitive thought, vitality to internal awareness and a major boost in chi flow. Emotionally, fear, panic anxiety and trauma become much easier to process as the triggers can no longer start the hormone cascade that leads into a neurochemical firestorm that makes the internal space drop into pure survival mode.

Anyone identifying as an energy worker, Starseed or on the path of Ascension would benefit greatly from direct physical attention to what powers their energy body.

With greater understanding comes greater awareness. With greater awareness comes insight into how to alchemize and transform. With understanding of energetic alchemy, consciousness can rewrite the physical, starting with your own internal universe.

You can literally train yourself in how to ascend by following the path the body naturally takes as you observe it letting go of what does not align, of what is not preferred.

Dissolving all fear triggers is simple once you understand the mechanics and without fear, love is all that can be felt.

From my heart to yours,
Eric ❤

WENDY HUTCHINSON: “Lightworkers Reach Higher!”

“Ultimately, everyone who wants to experience 5D must stand in their alignment with their higher selves to source and listen to their own guidance, follow their own compass and use their own discernment around what they believe and how they are going to get there. The destroyer aspect comes into play in standing in our integrity and power, setting boundaries, and honoring our personal truth. No longer can we sacrifice aspects of ourselves to make others happy, dim our light or focus on giving and giving while not honoring ourselves and what we need.”

~Wendy Hutchinson

 

There is a huge shift upon us, and I am witnessing many lightworkers being brought to their knees, questioning their path, questioning their gifts, and feeling tremendous torque and friction in their personal lives. 3D Earth has closed and completed and those who have chosen to go higher have entered the lower harmonics of 4D. They are being squeezed through the eye of the needle as they are being asked to go higher. The density of the bandwidth in lower 4D is working against them as this is where fear and separation are strongest. Many have languished here too long as it was expected that most would have ascended by the end of 2012.

Opposition pours frequency down which can often be mistaken as positive energy downloads when in fact they are targeting and instilling fear and doubt in our light worker communities worldwide. Discernment is critical. Not all energy is aligned or sanctioned, can you discern a download from an integration or negative energy? Are you feeling off? Are you experiencing fear about your financial situation, your family dynamics, your gifts and abilities? If you are experiencing any kind of doubt or fear around who you are and why you are here, it is the reflection of bandwidth or frequency you are currently living in. You must release this fear program to ascend.

Many are shedding density which presents as chaos, doubt, uncertainty and fear programming. We must reach higher, which means using our spiritual tools. Spiritual hygiene is critical right now. Ground and protect yourself energetically, close portals that are not in alignment with your higher self to source, cut cords, honor your body, meditate, walk, do yoga, be mindful of what is being invited into your life. Participate in things that bring you joy, connect with people who lift you up. Use your own discernment around what information feels aligned for you. Allow all that doesn’t resonate to fall away. Rise above the fear frequencies. Stay in your lane, honor your truth, and above all love yourself! Many have exited the 3D but are languishing in the lower bandwidths of 4th and not quite high enough to reach 5D. You are vulnerable here. Strive to be the highest expression of self in all things, in this state of being you will ascend.

Ascension isn’t a direct hop to 5D as most people believe. It’s not an instant shift. We must transition to light body, each human must shed density, old fear programing, reactivate DNA and navigate the physical ascension symptoms. This is not an overnight process as some believe, nor is it a journey of only love and light. Polarity exists, creator destroyer energy is necessary. You must experience it all in order to transcend and level up. This is a shift into a new way of being. Ultimately, everyone who wants to experience 5D must stand in their alignment with their higher selves to source and listen to their own guidance, follow their own compass and use their own discernment around what they believe and how they are going to get there. The destroyer aspect comes into play in standing in our integrity and power, setting boundaries, and honoring our personal truth. No longer can we sacrifice aspects of ourselves to make others happy, dim our light or focus on giving and giving while not honoring ourselves and what we need.

As 3D closes, many are navigating the squeeze through the 4th dimension. You will feel pressed and challenged by the lower density experiences coming up to clear. Your deepest vulnerabilities will be exposed and emotionally triggered. Know that you have everything you need to overcome these challenges. We are at the edge of changing the course of human history and the roles each and everyone of you have agreed to play are critical. Humanity needs you right now. There is a push pull as we anchor higher dimensional frequencies while those currently in power will do everything possible to keep humanity dumbed down and asleep. Each and everyone of you can create tremendous impact and help the collective by reaching for those higher bandwidths.

If your life is one of ease and in the flow, you are already there, extend a hand to those around you who are struggling.

To ascend we must all reach higher and expand our consciousness. Alignment with higher and higher aspects of self to source is critical. Think for yourselves, find YOUR truth, shake the old paradigms and social expectations to conform. Each of us must find our way out. Know that everything is possible for each and everyone of you and the only thing standing in the way of your ascension is choosing fear over the frequency of LOVE. This means unconditional love of self and love of others. Love and honoring of your physical body, love expressing in your thoughts and response to everyday life, and ultimately complete alignment with your truth will help you to navigate the shift to 5D. I honor the journey of each and every one of you, as there is no wrong turn or choice. Eventually you will arrive at your destination right on time.

SELF-MASTERY FOR THE DAY ~ Eric Raines on Triggers

What are your triggers? What sets you off?

 

Breathe into that feeling, inhale in your smile, exhale out what does not feel good, including your reaction to the trigger.

 

Train yourself not to react negatively to the trigger, then put it into action the next time it appears.

 

Magic.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Are You Suffering From Post-Narcissist Stress Disorder?”

Ascension Avatar note: This brought a chuckle, but I suppose it would be no laughing matter for those who have experienced it (I’ve always kept narcissists out of my life…).

.   .   .

 

Post Narcissist Stress Disorder or PSND affects those who have just managed to extricate themselves from a relationship with a narcissist. It is very much like PTSD.

PSND can be easily triggered by even the smallest thing the sufferer associates with the narcissist, be it a familiar smell or sound or taste.

Three major symptoms of PNSD:

1. Intrusive memories of the narcissist

Sometimes people suffering from PNSD are unexpectedly faced with triggers that send them into a nightmarish flashback about some incident with the narcissist.

They being to relive painful moments that involve narcissistic rage and other traumatic memories without being able to stop themselves.

Sometimes they begin to doubt their own sanity. Long periods of abuse may have conditioned them into believing that they are lacking in something.

They suffer nightmares and often have difficulty rebuilding their confidence in themselves.

2. Avoidance and emotional numbing

If you’re suffering from PNSD, you might begin to actively keep away from society and the things you once loved to do.

You’ll try your best to not dwell on the narcissist who hurt you. You’ll begin to feel like your mind is numb to all emotions.

Some try to overcome their issues by overusing recreational drugs or sedatives. Others might repress bad memories and have trouble focusing on even the simplest day to day tasks.

Forming new emotional connections will be hard and you might prefer to just hide yourself away from the world.

3. Anxiety and increased emotional volatility

Sufferers become very volatile and are prone to fits of irritability and rage while at the same time suffering from overpowering guilt which they try to hide.

Some may gaslight themselves (i.e., they begin to question every little action and memory and somehow bring all the blame onto themselves).

Insomnia, hyperventilation, hypervigilance, paranoia and distrust are also common symptoms.

LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “People Taking Offense”

“Since people with narcissism have distorted views of themselves, they tend to perceive any positive interactions as expected and any negative interactions as personal attacks. They are particularly sensitive to perceived negative attacks because they live in a pseudo-reality or delusional state about themselves in relation to others. They may genuinely believe they are superior to others, so when positive reactions come their way they may take them for granted.”

~Sharie Stines, PsyD

 

The Epidemic of People Taking Offense, While Tolerating Abusive Behavior as Okay

Dear ES Family,

The title of this article has been like wildfire in my inbox and has been increasingly observed in the social media landscape for many years now. Many people are taking offense and getting offended over minutiae, splitting hairs and getting really angry over nothing, while they ignore much larger issues that they actually should be concerned about. With this in mind, seeing this pattern escalate into epidemic proportions in the worldscape, this article is dedicated to the discussion of what it means when you are feeling offended, or when others get angry because they are offended at someone or something. When people are offended, it means their ego got bent out of shape when there was a disagreement and they did not get what they wanted. Many people get angry as a means of attempting to exert control over a person or situation. Maybe they didn’t like the way something or someone responded to them, or the way a particular situation is being expressed or represented.

I notice that most people get offended by what they imagined to be happening, rather than the actual event and taking the time needed to get more accurate information for a factual understanding to verify what really happened. Usually the person is angry about something that never happened to begin with, they imagined something in their mind or misunderstood the message and they remain offended while perpetuating the narrative of their personal delusion. It is quite unnerving at times to observe this unstable behavior in action, because it feels like a severe breakdown in treating others with respect and human courtesy, along with a rapid digression of critical thinking, mental clarity and balanced perception. The inability to see beyond a tiny slice of information, from which a personal interpretation or bias has been gathered from the limited lens of negative ego and the acquired 3D fractured belief systems.

Over the years, it has been interesting to note a pattern surface in the new age rainbow type of person that can get really offended so easily, when it would seem logical if they really did identify with love and light, they would be all about propagating love and kindness towards others. Most of it is a facade. Some of the most cruel and unstable people I’ve encountered over the years, are those that subscribe to the new age bliss out pill, complete with fake smiles and flowery words. No one wants the hidden wrath of a new age astral junkie when you confront their beliefs!

  • Take offense (at) (something)
  • To be or feel insulted, offended, or humiliated by something.
  • Take offense (at someone or something) to be insulted by someone or something.
  • Feel resentment or emotional pain, as in I didn’t realize he’d take offense when he wasn’t invited.

For many people, the tendency to take offense at little things is rooted in a false perspective of security in what the negative ego has created as the nature of the outer reality, according to that person’s belief system and mental perceptions. When that sense of reality or personal expectations are not met in the way that they wanted it to be, the ego gets offended and angry. We can see that this type of behavior has been increasing in the millennial or digital generation, in which the derogatory term, snowflake has been used to describe. The slang term snowflake may include a person perceived by others to have an inflated sense of uniqueness or an unwarranted sense of entitlement, or to be over-emotional, easily offended, and unable to deal with opposing opinions. Common usages include the terms special snowflake, generation snowflake, and snowflake that are commonly used as a politicized insult.

The term “snowflake generation” was one of Collins Dictionary’s 2016 words of the year. This tells us things are changing in the social landscape in the US. Collins defines the term as the young adults of the 2010s, viewed as being less resilient and more prone to taking offense than previous generations. The terms generation snowflake and snowflake generation are frequently used in reference to trigger warnings and safe spaces, or to describe young adults as “anti-free speech”, specifically in reference to a practice referred to as “no-platforming”. The term has also been used to refer to a reported increase in mental health issues among young adults.

All people would like to have a sense of personal security and safety; most people prefer to have the good opinion of others and want to feel that they belong. In our society, we tend to secure those good opinions with outer performance and images that are not always based in the truth, but of the false persona that we show to others in order to be accepted and belong. This need to belong somewhere informs what we do, how we speak, how we dress, how we express ourselves in our world and present oursleves to others.

When our security is based on our outer performance and image, we may feel threatened when someone expresses something that is perceived to be negative or unflattering about us. The undisciplined unconscious and conscious mind reaction to that threat is to take offense or become angry. Even a casual, flippant, or offhand remark can gnaw at us and steal our peace. The way to prevent taking offense is to address our desire for personal security, which comes from self awareness and building the core authentic self. As long as feelings of security are rooted in our negative ego and false self, the tendency to take offense, even at the little things, will exist. If, however, our feelings of security are not rooted in the negative ego’s perception of our outer performance and outer image, our perspective will change and our responses to the actions and comments of others will become much more balanced. We gain incredible strength when unconditional love is reborn as our new unifying principle, our true core self’s spiritual power and human dignity surfaces, and we are no longer shattered and overwhelmed by life’s circumstances.

Now let’s add another ingredient of severe ego distortion that results in narcissism where the perceived offense takes on wrath and rage. These people take getting offended to another level, which can show up with the f bombs and other choice words from random people becoming unhinged. Clearly, as spiritual catalysts we are triggering random people more often, and the NAA have been sending out the dark portals for assorted levels of harassment. Still it is obvious if one watches a youtube or comes into contact with social media, the insults, expletives, and character defamation tactics has gone to an entirely new level for public consumption. The subconscious content of the masses is spewing out to the surface for all of us to witness.

This is a good article.

How a Person with Narcissism Responds to a Perceived Offense
March 9, 2017 • By Sharie Stines, PsyD

Many people are simply not educated on the concept of the “narcissistic wound,” also known as the narcissistic injury, and are in for a wrath beyond comprehension when they offend a person with narcissism.

When offended, a typical person might experience hurt feelings or feel insulted or angry. However, the offended person might ultimately talk it through with the individual who committed the transgression, with a willingness to repair the relationship and move on. This can take time.

In general, bonds are developed and strengthened through the process of “rupture and repair.” People learn to handle insecurities in a relationship by building trust over time as they see each rupture or conflict in the relationship eventually leads to a deeper connection or repair.

Not so in the narcissistic relationship. Offending a person with narcissism can lead to immediate, lasting, and perhaps irreparable fallout.

When dealing with a person with narcissism, the rules are different. This is true in all aspects of the relationship, but for this article, the focus is on the narcissistic wound. These types of wounds are unlike other types of interpersonal ruptures. These differences are listed below:

Typical Rupture Themes:

*Hurt feelings
*Reaction tends to better match the perception of offense
*May result in anger
*May take time to repair
*Is eventually resolved
*Normal
*Offended person may react with anger, withdrawal, or repairable retaliation

Narcissistic Wound Themes:

*Shame attack
*Extreme overreaction
*Results in rage
*Causes existential threat to relationship
*Is never resolved
*Pathological
*Dr. Jekyll becomes Mr. Hyde
*Person with narcissism reacts with punishment, banishment, devaluing, or discarding of offender

Since people with narcissism have distorted views of themselves, they tend to perceive any positive interactions as expected and any negative interactions as personal attacks. They are particularly sensitive to perceived negative attacks because they live in a pseudo-reality or delusional state about themselves in relation to others. They may genuinely believe they are superior to others, so when positive reactions come their way they may take them for granted.

People with narcissism generally feel an inner emptiness and thus need positive input from others in order to maintain their delusional sense of reality. When anyone contradicts their fantasy views of themselves, they get close to those unbearable empty feelings and react strongly in order to stop their impending sense of inadequacy.

People with narcissism tend to have a chronic inner rage. Most people experience anger, usually a response to a perceived threat of some kind. Anger helps us realize when we need to take action, and quickly. Usually when people are angry, they temporarily suspend their cognitive functioning and empathy to a large degree and tend to operate in immediate terms.

Since they are continually full of rage (the flip side of their internal shame), people with narcissism may use any slight as an excuse to release some of the pressure of this inner rage/shame struggle. article – http://www.goodtherapy.org/blog/how-person-with…ived-offense-0309174

With the ongoing dedication to clearing negative ego and emotional distortions in the pain body, we must learn to inherently place value on our own self worth, and to be responsible to own our emotional triggers. We also must know how to set healthy boundaries and be able to let things that bother us go. In the times we live, it is a critical survival tool to learn how to let it go and not let hurtful or harmful words said by others, eat away at you inside, disturbing your inner peace.

Being easily offended is a habit that we all can overcome. It usually indicates poor understanding of one’s own emotions in favor of the strategy of trying to change the behavior of others. But, since we’re all autonomous beings, we are only able to change ourselves, this includes how we understand and react to the world around us. A commitment to changing oneself rather than trying to force the changes we want to see on others, is a valuable choice that requires humility and open-mindedness. Here is a productive article for Understanding the Emotions Behind Taking Offense. https://m.wikihow.com/Keep-From-Being-So-Easily-Offended

I hope this is helpful in navigating these types of scenarios, which seem to be escalating in the outer landscape.

With a Loving Heart,

Lisa
