BARBARA BUCK: “Hiding The Wounded Healer”

Suffering can appear in our lives with little warning. It startles us out of complacency. One day we are swimming with the tide, just breezing through life, then wham! Disease and discord hit us when we aren’t looking. Suddenly our nice dip in the ocean becomes a terrifying race from the sharks that we had no idea were right below the surface.

Hardship in whatever form it manifests, can cause us to lose faith that life is on our side. It can render us incapable of trusting the ebb and flow of reality as we understand it.

When I was diagnosed with a chronic disease, I was utterly blindsided. I am a healing practitioner, so in the beginning stages of being sick I had faith that I would be more than capable of handling the issue and moving on with my life. I had multiple tools to help me.

I did all the work, taking a mind/body/spirit approach to the disease, but instead of getting better, I got worse. I did everything that I knew how to do as a healing practitioner, but all my knowledge was useless in the face of my wretched suffering.

I stopped trusting the process and began to believe that I must have done something horribly wrong to deserve the physical and emotional trauma that I was experiencing.

To top it all off, I had a belief that no one would want to see a healer with a chronic disease. How could anyone put their faith in me to help them, if I couldn’t even heal myself? A sick healer is a paradox.

I spent a good deal of time stoically putting on my best game face while seeking help from other practitioners behind closed doors. Everyone that I knew had plenty of advice to give me, from why I got sick to what might help me get better.

Conventional medicine, naturopaths, homeopaths, nutritionists, spiritual counselors, acupuncturists, biofeedback therapists, energy healers of all different types; you name it, I tried it. I stopped trusting the healthcare industry to give me answers, but the worst part about it all is that I stopped trusting my ability to help myself.

Suffering makes us feel weak, and in that weakness we become vulnerable. It’s a terrifying experience to recognize that no matter what we’ve been taught to believe, there are some things we don’t have control over. Sometimes when we allow ourselves to step into our vulnerability, we can feel like victims, victims to our bodies, our thoughts, our creative process that’s gone awry, to God, to the Universe, to genetics.

I have vacillated back and forth between all of these things. I blamed my ancestors, the environment, but mostly I held myself accountable for this disease. I have a firmly held belief that I am a co-creator of my reality, so clearly I must have made this happen.

I played the self-blame game very well. I decided that I can’t be trusted to care for myself when I am in this open, susceptible state. The Universe can’t be trusted either because it certainly didn’t have my back and stop me from creating this horrible mistake.

It didn’t even give me fair warning.

When we are raw and wounded, the first thing we throw out of the window is usually trust. The most natural reaction to our loss of faith is to wrap ourselves in a protective shell because we are afraid of what might come next. The world no longer feels safe.

When we become ill, whether it’s emotionally, spiritually, or physically, we tend to try to keep the world at a comfortable distance. Instead of stepping into our vulnerability, we hide it under the guise of courage and dignity.

Society rewards stoicism with praise. If we see a cancer patient, we say “Isn’t she brave? She never complains about the pain she’s in. She just keeps fighting. It’s amazing!” Very rarely do we acknowledge it when someone courageously embraces their vulnerability by taking a step into the darkness of their condition and seeing what gifts lie within the murky depths.

When we voice our fears or expose our vulnerability, it can frighten our loved ones. It makes people uncomfortable when they can see our wounds. It makes them remember their mortality and their own ability to suffer.

We often respond to this behavior by hiding behind a courageous mask, when the truth is that it makes us feel guilt, anger, and shame.

It’s time for us as healers to take that mask off. It is impossible to heal if we don’t allow the shadows of our creation to surface for healing, or try to hide them. Ignoring them is no longer an option.

LISA RENEE: “Right Thinking in Facing Fear”

“Fear programs must be extracted from out of our body and cleared from controlling our consciousness, by paying attention to what we must learn from the lessons that come from the fear. Fear shows us the spiritual lessons we have yet to master inside of ourselves, as it demonstrates where darkness is blocking us, in finding harmony in our direct relationship with God. How much effort will you place on learning how to face fears and stop them from controlling your mind and controlling your life, in order to be free?”

~Lisa Renee

 

The frequency of fear represents physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bondage. It destroys the capacity for expanding light into our consciousness, while it produces slavery in the mind. Unrestrained fear is a destroyer; it destroys love, it destroys trust, it destroys life, it destroys relationships and it destroys people. For this purpose, spreading fear based mind control and dark spirits to hijack the subconscious thoughts and conscious belief systems of the masses, is the primary consciousness manipulation tool of the Negative Alien Agenda and the Controllers. All earth inhabitants have been conditioned to run fear-based thoughts as the default setting in the subconscious mind, in order to attract and grow even more darkness.

It takes personal will and commitment to understand how fear works in the hidden shadows of darkness, in order to find the strength to fully transform it into light. All of us have the internal power to transform darkness into light. Being courageous enough to face our deepest and darkest fears and be willing to put forth the effort to overcome them, is the path we all must take to secure our consciousness freedom during the Ascension Cycle. Overcoming Fears is an important spiritual lesson in higher consciousness development. We must address fears from the place of observation in order to demystify them and see where they are actually coming from. When we have the courage to address our hidden fears, we are facing the hidden places of darkness that have existed in parts of ourselves.

To Overcome Fear, we must comprehend the real reasons we feel afraid and realize that our fears are pointing to the places within us that need attention. Places that need unconditional love and spiritual understanding, in order for us to continue to evolve and grow. Fear stunts our forward progress and emotional growth, it blocks our interaction with our inner spirit and it generates disharmony in our relationship with God.

Right Thinking in Facing Fear

At this critical juncture during the bifurcation shift, each person chooses if they want to exist in spiritual bondage or freedom. This decision begins with gaining control over the mind, to remove blockages through the willingness to face darkness and Overcome Fear. This is the decision to commit to the process of organizing our lifestyle to prioritize our evolution towards developing a deeper connection with God, in our prayerful request to help us overcome darkness in order to achieve spiritual freedom. This comes with the necessity of reprogramming our mind into right effort and right thinking, and to remove all that fear content which obstructs the relationship with our spirit from fully bonding. Right Thinking gives us the personal power to remove the state of our suffering. All judgments, fears and interpretations have to be suspended and when they occur, they are registered for observation and then let go and released.

We need to dissect the Frequency of Fear in all the ways it impacts our subconscious attitudes and behaviors, by paying attention to how we think and interpret our world through the inner dialogue we have with ourselves. Fear programs must be extracted from out of our body and cleared from controlling our consciousness, by paying attention to what we must learn from the lessons that come from the fear. Fear shows us the spiritual lessons we have yet to master inside of ourselves, as it demonstrates where darkness is blocking us, in finding harmony in our direct relationship with God. How much effort will you place on learning how to face fears and stop them from controlling your mind and controlling your life, in order to be free?

When our minds can only think about surviving perceived threats, we are easily controlled and manipulated through blind spots created from our own fears. This defines the state of mental bondage and suffering. Through perpetual states of feeling fear and anxiety, our critical thinking, executive function and emotional self-regulation skills that help us to resolve problems in our life are essentially eliminated. We are unable to face challenges and solve problems effectively when fear lives in our mind. Overcoming Fear is the main lesson, we have to regain control over our mind and be able to accurately assess ourselves in our surroundings. Overcoming Fear also contains vital keys in becoming the director of our own lives, as well as leading us to achieve mental, emotional and spiritual freedom, or a life without suffering.

When we Overcome Fear we can break free from impulsive reactions that are triggered from domination based tactics used in the everyday world, and from manipulators that use aggression and intimidation in order to take control over our mental perceptions and emotional reactions. From this awareness, we can see these interactions as lessons for mastering our personal growth, which we gain incredible spiritual strength from. We live in a mind controlled world that uses fear based perceptions to socially engineer slavery. What steps can you take now to begin to free yourself from the patterns of mental bondage and personal suffering, forming strong mental skills for recontextualizing fear and improving your ability to emotionally self-regulate? What spiritual lessons does fear reveal to you now?

Frequency of Fear and Feeling Unsafe

The frequency of fear is what makes people feel threatened and unsafe in the world, as well as feel disconnected and separated from other people, which generates disunity in the world. Disunity breeds self-deception, false perceptions and many negative ego character flaws that generate relationally unsafe people. People with a lack of empathy or ethical conduct have a tendency to deeply criticize, blame or judge others. When fear rules us, darkness rules us. It also rules our relationships, which extinguishes the possibility for sharing deep human heart connections and forming empathic and loving bonds. Please take note of how fear is rooted in darkness and can destroy ethical conduct, respect and empathy for others very easily. Fear destroys the hope for unified cooperation to exist between people which breaks down compassionate communication, that could be directed towards problem solving greater issues that impact all of humanity. One controller type person that uses fear to manipulate others for power can easily destroy the accumulated unity, positivity and trust earned in an entire organization or community, in one fell swoop. Thus, fear is the main manipulation tool of the controller archetype that is designed to generate perceptions of being threatened and feeling unsafe in the company of others and in any kind of social setting. It also produces relationally unsafe people, who are generally unethical, disrespectful people that lack empathy for others.

Essentially, unsafe people have weak character qualities that tend to spread fear and disunity, which make other people feel unsafe while in their presence. Many unsafe people have developed walls to distance themselves from others because of their hidden fears, that stem from unhealed personal trauma. All of us have been in the company of an unsafe person and noticed how uncomfortable and tense we may feel while in their presence. When we cannot be authentic and truthful in the presence of another because we fear they will judge, persecute or attack us for revealing ourselves, we feel deeply uncomfortable, drained and unsafe when we are in their presence. Many relationally unsafe people are ruled by their fears and many of their reactions and impulses are made unconsciously, through their unhealed mental or emotional triggers.

Let’s bring to mind some fear based negative ego qualities that create Relationally Unsafe People, people we cannot be completely truthful around without fearing we will suffer some kind of repercussion, attack or punishment. Unsafe people can be judgmental, blaming, manipulative, dishonest, narcissistic, emotionally unstable, irresponsible, gossips, Gaslighters, control freaks, back-stabbers, demanding, and entitled with superior attitudes. Sounds like a lot of darkness is present in those behaviors, doesn’t it? When in the company of people that demonstrate these fear based negative ego qualities, we may need to create strong boundaries and set the terms of our interaction with them. In some cases we may need to sever the connection entirely. There is generally nothing positive that will come from continually feeding destructive, harmful or abusive relationship patterns that refuse to heal or evolve. We have to plant seeds where there is fertile soil, if we want a garden to grow. And to shift out of the negative polarity of fear, one may need to pull weeds, or walk away from that relationship pattern as an act of self-love and self-preservation.

However, if we habitually feel unsafe with others, it may be we need to demystify the reasons we feel afraid, and discern the difference between people that demonstrate unsafe behaviors, and those who demonstrate responsible and safe behaviors. This also means that if we feel unsafe, it is our spiritual duty to build safety within ourselves by developing inner strength, based in the higher qualities that make us a safe person to be around. Strong spiritual foundation is built upon the cornerstone of moral character development and building trust inside and outside for ourselves. Trust is built upon the consistent ethical behaviors of moral conduct where people are treated with equal respect and kindness, and allowed to be who they are without repercussion. As much as you may feel unsafe with others, are you yourself a safe person for others to be around? Many times what we fear in others is the hidden unconscious behavior that we have not cleared from within our own deepest selves. Until we are willing to look at these hidden fears, we can also easily project or transfer these fears onto other people.

As a basic guideline for extracting fears by replacing negative qualities with positive qualities, is monitoring day-to-day thoughts and behaviors. We can look to GSF Behavior or simply adhere to the Golden Rule. Treat others’ as you would like to be treated, and intend to build self-esteem through esteeming actions.

At some point it is helpful to realize that the current accepted reality of negative ego behaviors and the frequency of fear, has been used against people of the earth as a psychological weapon to weaken them. Fear is broadcasted everywhere in our environment and this has produced relationally unsafe people all around us. Fear weakens moral character and it stunts the higher attributes of generosity, kindness and tolerance for others. The manufacture of endless enemies in the mainstream media maintains the mass perception of continual threats, which condition more fears and learned helplessness into the unconscious mind and pain body of humanity. The fear broadcast drills down into our personal lives, infecting our thoughts, behaviors and relationships with the frequency of fear. The frequency of fear produces feelings and perceptions that we are unsafe, unsafe with others, unsafe inside ourselves. Knowing that we live on a planet imprisoned through the mass broadcast of the frequency of fear, can be helpful to disentangle us from the mainstream fear broadcasts and fear based reactions of people around us. Refuse to take on and wear the frequency of fear running in the exterior. When we can see the fear agendas operating in the external, we can go within and sift through what is sourcing from within. Becoming aware of what fears may have been taken on through being with fear based people, as well as noting the outer agendas that use forms of electronic harassment and media based mind control.

Establishing Safety to Overcome Fear

If we are to begin to recognize the qualities that define safe people and safe relationships, we need to first understand what a safe person is and why we need that kind of safety to overcome fear. We need people in our life that will be honest with us, telling us where we are creating harm and potentially where we may need to change, in order to improve ourselves. We need friends that walk according to the truth and are accepting of us, yet they are honest about our weaknesses and faults without condemning us. Relationships in which people use shame, guilt or condemn us for our actions are ultimately destructive and traumatizing, which does not produce emotional or spiritual growth. These are the unsafe people that require us to be different than who we are, in order to be accepted and conditionally loved by them. Conditional love that must be earned is useless, it is a made up projection from the negative ego demands and is not real love. If we do not have this kind of safe person around us yet, we can become that person for our selves and others. As we intend to clear fears and improve our character, we attract similar people.

Safe people can be fully present with others, connecting at deep and intimate levels. Safe people can speak truth to one another, without being offended or taking things personally. Safe people give others the opportunity to grow and become their highest expression, for them as God intended. Safe people create loving and positive feelings and inspire good works, such as being in service to others. Safe people create relationships that allow people to be as they are, and draw us closer to feel unity and connection with all of life.

In order to heal our mental and emotional body to overcome deep fears, we must know how to establish safety within ourselves and recognize what makes us feel unsafe. Taking good care of our body, having a consistent meditation or spiritual practice to become more inner directed, avoiding exposure to self-harming behaviors, and learning how to manage fear or trauma reactions is essential to being safe within yourself. The first step is to identify what makes us feel safe and stable and to do those things every day. We must make an effort to identify what choices we do have, and make changes in our environment that can increase our sense of safety and comfort while in our physical space. Assess the physical and emotional safety of your environment, and realize it may be necessary to remove people or situations from your life who are entrenched in destructive and harmful behaviors, in order to make the necessary changes to your lifestyle. When we are more competent in emotional self-regulation our inner safety is enhanced, so that trust can be formed, as we discover that we really do have the resources inside of us for feeling comforted and safe.

ALETHEIA LUNA: “The Dark Side of Spiritual Healing That No One Talks About”

Spiritual healing is generally considered to be something very positive.

I mean, what could be more uplifting than putting the two words “spiritual” and “healing” together? It’s like watching a puppy cuddle a kitten … or eating a triple-chocolate cake doused in melting caramel. It just feels wonderful and enchanting.

And don’t get me wrong. I love spiritual healing. I think it is absolutely essential on our inner journeys. In fact, if every single person in this world underwent spiritual healing, I think humanity and planet earth would be transformed forever. I believe that we could finally achieve the ideal of world peace.

But if you have been reading my work for a while, you’ll know that I’m not interested in focusing solely on the ‘love and light’ side of spirituality. I am a shadow worker. I love to plunge into the darkness and expose what is hidden. And today, we need to shine that torch on the dark side of spiritual healing.

But firstly …

What is Spiritual Healing?

Spiritual healing is the practice (and experience) of restoring, harmonizing and balancing our Spirit or Soul. There are many different approaches to spiritual healing. For example, some new age healing practitioners focus only on bringing balance to the etheric or non-physical energy field of the human body. Shamanic healers focus on restoring the soul and curing soul loss. And other holistic healers focus on unifying the body, heart, mind, and soul. Even psychologists and therapists are starting to incorporate spiritual healing into their work such as those operating in the depth and transpersonal fields of psychology.

Spiritual healing is also seen as a transcendental experience of reconnecting with our true nature. As author and teacher Shakti Gawain writes:

Spiritual healing occurs as we begin to consciously reconnect with our essential being — the wise, loving, powerful, creative entity that we are at our core.

 

The Dark Side of Spiritual Healing That No One Talks About

There’s a reason why no one talks about the dark side of spiritual healing. Number one, most people aren’t even aware that there’s a dark side. And if they are aware then number two: they are uncomfortable to face or confront it.

Here’s where I come in: your friendly neighborhood shadow worker. I will help to outline exactly how seeking for spiritual healing can be self-destructive and why. Sounds paradoxical, doesn’t it? Well here’s the thing, it is! Spiritual healing can feel like an enigma wrapped in a riddle, and I’ll explain why.

To be as short and succinct as possible, there are two dark twins of spiritual healing:

Spiritualized Resistance

The first dark twin is what I call spiritualized resistance.

What does spiritualized resistance mean? Basically, it means that sometimes we can use spiritual healing as an excuse to “get rid of” certain feelings, memories, and experiences that we’ve had.

What’s wrong with trying to banish or get rid of what we go through? It’s a form of resistance. And resistance leads to tremendous suffering. I’m talking anxiety, depression, anger, resentment, bitterness, the whole shebang.

I believe that everyone in the spiritual community needs to understand that trying to “heal” is not always about healing. In fact, often, healing is used as an excuse to deny, suppress, disown, or reject what we’re going through.

It is completely understandable to want to try and get rid of our suffering — particularly if we are exhausted and deeply wounded. But here’s the thing: desperately trying to heal can actually exacerbate your unhappiness and deepen your resistance to what’s happening, thereby preventing you from actually healing!

I will repeat that sentence again (read it slowly): desperately trying to heal can intensify your unhappiness and deepen your resistance to what’s happening, thereby preventing you from actually healing!

It is important for us to understand that true spiritual healing is about facing, acknowledging, exploring, and integrating what we are going through. It’s not about trying to escape our reality!

Dark Spiritual Teachers

The second dark twin is perpetrated by spiritual “healers” and practitioners who are aware — either on a conscious or unconscious level — of the first dark twin of spiritual healing. These teachers are aware of the addictive quality of the push-and-pull game of eternal self-improvement and they use it for their own self-gain.

I see this literally everywhere. It’s a sad thing to behold. It’s prevalent in people who believe they must pay big bucks to “manifest their desires,” keep their vibration high, and basically accumulate more and be more (as if who they are and what they have isn’t already enough). When does this getting and being more actually end? It’s an eternal cycle that leads to suffering.

Then, of course, you have the more sinister breed of spiritual teachers who appear divine and enlightened on the surface but are raging megalomaniacs underneath. A true spiritual teacher will always give your power back to you, but a false spiritual teacher will not only parade around wearing your codependency like a crown but will also actively encourage it. They will purport to have the power to “heal” all your issues and provide you with the “one true path” towards enlightenment, illumination, or Oneness. And if you believe them, you will be ensnared in a dangerous web of believing that someone outside of you can offer you salvation.

What is Authentic Spiritual Healing?

Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives.

~Akshay Dubey

 

I hope that during the course of this article, I have communicated myself clearly. Spiritual healing itself isn’t to blame, it is our mental approach towards spiritual healing.

When spiritual healing is used as a way to avoid, deny, suppress, and disown our issues through “spiritualized resistance” we are abusing its potential. And when spiritual healing is used as a dangling carrot by unethical and unwise spiritual teachers, then it is being desecrated.

What is authentic spiritual healing? True spiritual healing is about facing, acknowledging, exploring, and integrating what we are going through. It’s not about trying to escape our reality! It’s really as simple as that.

Just think of it this way: if you had a blistering sore oozing blood and puss … would you really achieve much by covering your eyes and pretending to ignore it? No. The pain and infection would still be there. Would you really heal by pretending the sore wasn’t yours or by making it someone else’s responsibility to look after? No. You’d still carry that sore with you everywhere. It wouldn’t go away any time soon. The only way to heal that blistering sore is to face it, accept it, and find ways of alleviating your suffering — not as a way of trying to escape your reality — but as a form of self-love. This, to me, is true spiritual healing.

So when it comes to spiritual healing, please be mindful of these traps and practice healthy caution. Critical thinking skills and radical self-honesty are so vital in this day and age.

I’ve been guilty of using spiritual healing as a way to try and escape my suffering before. As a person who has wrestled with anxiety for years, I have often fallen into the trap of trying to spiritually bypass my suffering through fluffy feel-good thinking or methods that promise to instantly “get rid” of anxiety. It doesn’t work. Trying to put a band-aid on a festering sore will only make it worse. Resisting your reality, even in a “spiritual” way, will only serve to deepen your suffering. The only way out is through. You need to go to the core and roots of your issues in order to heal them.

JAMES HALLAHAN: “Dream Manipulation”

As the first consideration, it should be made clear that the traditional notion of the dream as “fantasy” is now, most assuredly, open to question. In light of what has been revealed with reality and the nature of multi-dimensional experience, it seems probable now that the dreamworld is in fact an aspect of our universe—a type of “non-physical” plane which our consciousness seems to have access to while in lower brainwave states.

Presumably, this is something analogous to the astral, perhaps contained within it, but with certain notable distinctions: There seems to be some kind of mechanism or energetic structuring which partitions it from that of the outlying regions, forming somewhat of an inter-realm between frequencies, which is in some measure exclusive to the individual. The reason for this feature is up for speculation. What seems most feasible is that this is something natural that functions almost as a kind of “safeguard”—containing the erratic manifestations of the subconscious and perhaps insulating us, to some degree, from the activity of the astral. The point here is that this is not just a matter of chemical activity within the brain; this is truly an area of reality which we are exposed to on a regular basis—and in which, I would argue, we are still without a very complete understanding. Considering that they likely play a fundamental role in our being, it would probably be wise to thoroughly investigate their nature and to perhaps re-examine the conventional wisdom to which we largely refer.

One of the central issues is of course the capacity that dreams have as a source of spiritual guidance. As mentioned, the dream-state allows conscious access to a non-physical plane, which, contrary to the physical plane, has a kind of fluid nature in which thought can manifest instantaneously into various forms of perceivable phenomena (imagery, sounds etc.). This essentially makes possible the conveyance of information. The reason the information is conveyed by way of symbolic imagery—rather than, for instance, English lettering—is presumably in part due to the extreme fluidity of the environment and its tendency to fluctuate from our emerging thoughts, which can distort words and actually change them into what we mistakenly perceive them as. Larger (pictorial) images, which we’re able to quickly recognize, are less susceptible to be altered in this way. So essentially what we’re looking at here with dream content, in large part anyway, is information that has been deliberately encoded into a format that is more suitable for the dream medium. The major question, which I think garners far too little concern, is where the information is coming from. Is it exclusively derived from the divine, via the higher-self? Or is it perhaps of more diverse origin?

The answer to the preceding question, however disagreeable it may be, seems far more likely to be the latter. As mentioned, the dream plane is likely intrinsic to the astral (or fourth dimension) and as is exceptionally known within alternative communities—it is inhabited. The spatial realms of the fourth dimension are replete with a diverse array of conscious (non-physical) entities—and their nature we must concede is, at best, dubious. We should bear in mind here that anything operating below fifth-dimensional status is likely not in complete accordance with Universal law. We know with certainty as well that deception is extraordinarily common and, owing to the current evolutionary phase, we’re certainly more liable to be interfered with. It therefore stands to reason that our approach to dreams should be that of maximum discernment. Further than that, we should perhaps explore the possibility that the dream plane is not exclusively under our own private control, but is perhaps subject to the same regulations as the astral or even the physical plane—entailing that it is still a collective environment and therefore able to be influenced (or manipulated) by outside intelligences, without constituting as any kind of transgression or infringement of sovereignty.

The idea of dream manipulation, though I’m introducing it as hypothetical, is certainly more than just speculation. I think that with just a cursory examination its legitimacy is quickly uncovered. To begin with, there are surely countless numbers of individuals who can attest to dreams that clearly exhibited an overt malignancy—not simply a foreshadowing of misfortune—but rather a definite pernicious display which tends often to incite emotional distress and worry. Of course, what immediately comes to mind when suggesting this is the “nightmare”—and along with it the notion of its commonality and our perception of them as being altogether natural. This seems on the surface to be common-sense, however, the foundation of this belief is of course stemming from the orthodox conception, which we all now know to be without basis. From an informed perspective, bearing in mind what we’ve just covered, it is entirely conceivable that nightmares, for as back as we’ve known them, may very well be, at least in part, the result of deliberate psychic manipulation. I’m certainly not suggesting that this is uniformly the case or that a negative mindset, carried into the dream, could not manifest frightful imagery—but I do feel confident to suggest here that a substantial percentage of them are in fact being externally generated. Add to this, incidentally, the fact that “nightmare” derives from the Middle English word “mare”—denoting “female evil spirit”—and likewise that ancient cultures, almost unanimously, thought of bad dreams as being the result of negative spiritual influences, attributed directly to negative (or demonic) spirits.
This premise, for some anyway, will likely give rise to a certain degree of doubt. Not only does it entail an enormously widespread effort to generate fear and distress, but clearly suggests as well a kind of coordinated strategy at work—which, very significantly to my point, strongly indicates that there is significant organization. These features, it should be pointed out, very much contradict the common portrayal of entities being propagated by mainstream paranormal enthusiasts. The negative entity, as conveyed by these enthusiasts, is essentially that of a mindless, roving beast who attacks seemingly at random for no purpose other than to self-satisfy. In response to this, I would suggest that this is perhaps far off the mark. In truth, when we closely analyze the various components of what we can observe of their actions, there’s clearly a level of sophistication here that hints at something much more than bestiality. What we’re really dealing with here, I would think unquestionably, are advanced intelligences—possessing, in most cases, a more proficient understanding of reality than that of humans. From this, I feel that the following can be speculated:

  1. The underlying reason for dream manipulation is probably relatively obscure and more complex than we would initially suppose.
  2. The deceptive techniques which are incorporated into the dream are likely highly developed and very skillfully concealed.
  3. The overall agenda is of perhaps a much broader design of which dream manipulation is only one small aspect.

Now as for the purpose behind dream manipulation, I would say it’s clear that there are at least several different underlying reasons. Perhaps one of the most apparent would be the potential it has to influence our manifestation capacity. To illustrate what I mean, I will draw the reader’s attention to the following subject: It is fairly well recognized that a substantial number of the spiritually-minded hold the view that dreams carry a kind of prognostic significance. This notion is of course justified as we do possess a multi-dimensional constitution which enables a capacity to transcend time and space boundaries—which does in fact happen during the course of sleep. However, we should maybe question whether this is exclusively the cause behind prophetic dreams. I would point out first that such dreams are more often than not a kind of simulated (or symbolic) representation of the portended event—and not the actual event. How do we then account for this disparity? To speculate: perhaps it is the higher-self who is actually witness to the event and that it is then reconstructed as a dream—which, with this interpretation, suggests that precognitive experiences are not accidental and are divinely intended. If we’re to premise this, we should ask the question of why these prognostications are necessary. What function or purpose do they serve?

With respect to this, we can perhaps query the notion of prophetic dreams as being a kind of “advance notice”—given so that we may circumvent certain outcomes. This is a questionable supposition because of course it is common understanding that the vast majority of our dreams do not come true and, apart from that, are never known to be prognostic until the moment of fruition. Because of this, it is unlikely that a pre-emptive action would ever be taken on account of a dream. In addition, this “opportunity of circumvention” seems perhaps slightly at odds with what is normally understood of divine intention. If every experience, positive or negative, is divinely intended and has been calculated to be precisely what is needed for our advancement—then giving any kind of notice, or ability to circumvent, seems maybe inconsistent with this. In addition, there’s also the fact that a certain percentage of them foretell what seem to be very trifling occurrences, leading some to believe that the dreams are inadvertent—and due simply to our multidimensionality.

Due to these uncertainties—and the potentiality of extensive dream manipulation—we should maybe entertain some alternative possibilities: As most are aware by now, entities, from their perspective in the fourth dimension, have the notable advantage of being able to see potential future timelines and are thus bestowed with the means to predict future events. Given this fact, there is little doubt that this is something they would attempt to profit from. In regard to the idea of influencing manifestation—which requires the inducement of beliefs and anticipation of outcomes—the widespread notion of dreams having a predictive quality would certainly constitute as a favorable condition towards this aim. If we believe that our dreams may have some bearing on future events, then naturally this will, in some cases, give rise to a degree of expectancy (even if slight)—and thus have a latent impact on what we manifest. Because of this, we can perhaps speculate that such entities (who engage in these endeavors) would have within their interests the object of reinforcing this belief and perhaps dispersing more evenly. Could it perhaps be a possibility that organic prophetic dreams are less common than we have thought? Could the prevalence of prophetic dreams potentially be attributed to a manipulative design—intended to facilitate an avenue of influence over our creative capacity? There may be enough basis here to at least consider this as a possibility.

What may be consistent with this is the fact that prophetic dreams seem predominantly to be negative. What they most commonly prognosticate are adverse circumstances, frequently involving death or terrible accidents—very much akin to “nightmares”. If we’re looking at this from the angle that they’re intended and not accidental—why then would this be the case? We know there is small probability for avoidance; we know that apprehension can bring us more vibrationally in line with negative outcomes; we also know, with certainty, that negative emotions (stimulated by such dreams) can adversely affect our energy field. This is not to say that there could be no legitimate reason for them, but only that there are valid questions needed to be asked, so that we can better ascertain the source of this phenomenon.

Touching back on our collective attitude towards dreams, we must admit that we do in fact have a latent sensitivity regarding their content. We are affected by them and, when unfavorable, they do at times cause varying degrees of concernment. It must be noted that this sensitivity is not limited to the spiritually-minded but is present, to some degree, in perhaps the majority of the human population. Accentuating this, I’ll briefly highlight a conversation I had with my sister (who is not spiritual) just a few weeks back: She remarked that she had a dream the previous night where she was in a car accident and had overturned her car. I asked her, before anything else, how it made her feel. Widening her eyes slightly, she responded “Like I might be in some kind of car accident!” … I think we should reflect on this and bear in mind that this kind of reasoning is not uncommon—and maybe not accidental. Lastly on this, I will just point out that I am not suggesting that prophetic dreams, in and of themselves, are necessarily a bad thing—but rather that an artificially induced inflation of their numbers (if they are in fact naturally infrequent) may precipitate an undue sensitivity regarding their significance—which, as I say, could be seen as favorable to the agendas of dream manipulation. Please note that, at present, this is only speculation. I am simply presenting, for the sake of open inquiry, an alternative hypothesis from which we can draw our own conclusions.

As another motive for dream manipulation, which could perhaps be the overarching reason, we should consider the principal source of sustenance required by dark entities. Peculiar as though it may be, it seems that the nourishment needed by such entities takes the form of negative (low-vibrational) emotional energy. The reason for this is presumably that, through some dubious feat, they have somehow managed to actually disconnect themselves from source-creator and thus have effectively rendered themselves cut-off from life-force energy. I suspect this wasn’t actually due to their being “banished”, but rather that their energy fields, through their own actions, had reached a virtually incompatible wavelength with the background cosmic energy. And now, in order for the continuation of their existence, unsuspecting host systems have to be found and clandestinely converted into production facilities—which is essentially a process of downgrading energy to a frequency that is in sympathy with their own vibration. Obviously, once a source has been secured, the procedure would likely be to optimize its output, using any and all means to increase fear-based emotion and—most fundamentally—the negative manifestations which give rise to it.

As to the role that manipulated dreams play in this, I would say it’s self-explanatory that the nightmare not only generates fear, but perhaps a relatively potent form of it. Excluding people who live in, for instance, war-torn or dangerous parts of the world, it is probably nightmares that give rise to fear the most often. I have to say, for myself anyway, that nightmares are really the only time that I experience fear. And I should remark here, considering my own dreams at least, that there are definitely indications that some of them are purposefully designed to do just that.

I cite here my persistently recurring dreams of being stranded in inescapable darkness—one of which, the most noteworthy of them all, occurred conspicuously the night of my last birthday: As usual, I suddenly find myself in my house in complete darkness—although this time there’s an unusually foreboding atmosphere and, to my perplexity, I find that all my appliances are amiss; my fridge is wide open; my oven has been pulled away from the wall; there’s an overly large trash bag in the middle of the floor (which I was uneager to open); and, most portentously, my television has been turned on. Immediately persuaded that this was paranormal activity, I rush in an attempt to turn on the lights, but as usual I’m foiled in this as the power has been cut-off. As regularly unfolds, I bewilderedly struggle to find a source of light, discovering every contrivance to be mysteriously dysfunctional (even candles)—except this time, quite unprecedentedly, I find when I awaken that my real television has surprisingly been turned on, moderately loudly, to an irregular music station which, I further noted, was playing an exceptionally disagreeable tune.

The preceding dream, for the record, exemplifies what I think are some of the classic hallmarks of an “overt” manipulated dream, which I would characterize as a sort of mischievous trickery; however, as far as a fear producing dream, this of course in no way typifies their standard form. Some of them, which surely many can bear witness to, are to a far degree much more malicious. For the record, I have evaluated the dream in the sense of it being natural and symbolic, however, due to its association with the subsequent paranormal event, there seems a strong likelihood that this was attributable to manipulation.

Returning to the idea of their generation of fear, I would also draw attention to the fact that most dreams go unaccounted for—perhaps as much as 95% of them. So the impression we have that only a small amount of dreams incite fear is perhaps not substantiated. We could really only speculate as to how many dreams are actually fear producing and, as should be pointed out, even the most acute and severe nightmares, as I have discovered myself, can go entirely under the radar and all memories of them rendered completely irretrievable. In addition, we should bear in mind that fear is only one particular variety of negative, low-vibrational emotion. We should contemplate all off the other dream scenarios which evoke negative emotions other than fear—of which there are undoubtedly plenty. Furthermore, it should be made clear that I am not at all suggesting that manipulated dreams are the primary stimulus of negative energy, but rather, as I alluded earlier, are probably more intended as a supplementary derivation, used with the aim of elevating it to more optimal levels.

The last practicable reason for dream manipulation, which is likely to be the most incontrovertible, would be as a means to corrupt one’s spiritual guidance. In regard to this, it should be taken for granted, given the methods of the opposition, that virtually every source of multidimensional information will be seized upon and compromised using advanced methods. It follows from this that the procedure used in evaluation of dream material would necessarily have to be up to par with such refined techniques. I would think it should be somewhat comprehensive and, of course, gauged according to what we understand of higher dimensional principles—Is its guidance in complete accord with oneness? With this being said, I would further suggest that it needs to be somewhat analytical and not entirely based on intuition. My estimation is that they have taken intuition into account—and have likely devised ways to circumnavigate its perusal. One such method—which is universal and could certainly be applied to dream content—is to immerse the deceptive portion of information into an overall context containing distinguishable truths. This would mask the disinformation and through sensing the validity of the surrounding information may potentially cause your intuitive faculty to misfire and resonate as genuine truth. In view of this, I would consider some minor analysis advisable—not to exclude intuition—but to supplement it so as to fail-safe against such techniques.

So with dream-based guidance, depending on the wariness of the individual, the foremost role of the corruptive entity I should think would be to maintain the belief that the source of information behind the dream is secure. This would naturally be a very delicate task of implanting dream content which always, on the surface, seemed to be benevolent and never going too far with the corruptive elements so as to not arouse suspicion. As I’ve touched on in the preceding, it would be to package the deception into a very wholesome, auspicious-looking dream, however, the intendment of the message (if correctly deciphered) would divert the individual away from his true interests. One of the most common tactics to corrupt guidance in this way is to introduce “distractive” elements.

To illustrate what I mean, say for instance a novice spiritual initiate goes to see a medium for a reading. Completely unbeknownst to the initiate (and the medium as well), the entities which are channeling the information are clever imposters who, through a sleight of hand, reveal to him that he is none other than the long-awaited reincarnation of King Tut. Intrigued, but in no way convinced of this, the initiate leaves and during his sleep that night (unaware that dreams can be manipulated), is bestowed with imagery of pyramids, obelisks and hieroglyphics—and upon awakening is seen as glorious confirmation that after all he was indeed the long-awaited King Tut. And thus, instead of focusing on genuine spiritual attainment, he embarks on a long drawn-out journey to rediscover his past as Tutankhamen—much to the satisfaction of the entities.

Where dream deception gets a lot more complex is in situations where the dreamer is aware of the reality of manipulated dreams. In such situations, what seems to unfold is that the entities will attempt to shape your impression of what “the manipulated dream” looks like. Depending on the individual, they will first hold fast to the hope that you retain the impression of manipulated dreams being exclusively negative in appearance. They’ll likely very early on deliberately stage a few “transparent” manipulated dreams, which will be negative and which you will latch onto and form a conception as to the tell-tale features of a manipulated dream. And thereafter, you will evaluate the authenticity of dreams based on these learned clues. Unbeknownst to you, however, the entities had all along possessed the means to replicate the exact characteristics of any quality of dream, even the most benevolent in nature. So, by and large, it seems as though their procedure is to gradually condition our perception of dreams with the overall aim of camouflaging their deception. In addition to this, once the dreamer has been primed in this way and is consciously looking for the “false” clues of a manipulated dream, the entities may then attempt to undermine your legitimate dream guidance by using a process which can be referred to as “earmarking”. How it is achieved is through duplicating whatever your genuine advisements would be and then attaching to them certain details which will cause you to suspect its origin. Such details could encompass a variety of things, but are usually slightly ignoble elements, based in materiality and unreflective of higher principles. Ultimately what this results in is a disregard for your legitimate objectives—or at the very least confusion.

In return to the overall subject of dream manipulation, an important question that we should feel compelled to answer is—to what extent are our dreams being manipulated? If we know they have the capability; if we know they’re already engaged in it; if we know they have rather strong motivations for doing so—then what safeguard is there to prevent their dominance over the dream landscape? Moreover, what reason would they have to refrain from it? I’m not presupposing this is our situation, but in such a scenario, deeper questions would need to be explored. In particular, it seems fairly demonstrative that there is an inverse permeation that occurs with our conscious experience in the dream plane. To explain: It is fairly well recognized that our conscious experience in the real-world filters into the dreamworld via our subconscious. However, I feel confident in asserting that there’s clearly an observable transference which occurs in the other direction. Quite simply, our experience in the dreamworld has an influence on our consciousness in the real world. This is exhibited clearly when we notice how different we feel in the morning after having a pleasant dream compared with that of a nightmare. This may seem obvious, and perhaps pointless to some, however, in light of dream manipulation, it has all new meaning and relevance.

The implications of this became clearly recognizable to me on the following occasion: I was in the midst of an important spiritual practice where one willfully abstains from sensory pleasure with the aim of vibrational enhancement. I intended to go for at least a month with this and near to the halfway point, unsurprisingly, there came a climax of discomfort. I started to rationalize throwing in the towel, although, for the most part, was successfully maintaining. However, very conspicuously at this low-point, I was besieged with a series of exhilarant dreams, full of excitement and people, and very markedly centered around material indulgence. Upon waking from these, I was completely saturated with this desire to go out and luxuriate in material pleasures. It was however no doubt spiritually inadvisable and of course irrational, because I had already embarked on this practice and would have rendered it null not going through with it the whole way. Nevertheless, my mindset was so significantly altered from this, and the urge so strong, that I deviated anyway—and in so doing careened way of my spiritual path, as I didn’t recommence with the practice for at least another month. So ultimately what this seemingly benign dream ended up facilitating was the complete derailment of my primary spiritual endeavor—at which I would have been naïve not to realize as having been calculated.

So essentially what I’m hypothesizing here is that there may be a hidden subversive element to dreams that has so far gone largely unaccounted for. If it was in fact the dream which drove me off course, then what we have here, more or less, is a subtle form of mind-control. The dream engendered a particular frame of mind which was clearly used in deliberation of swaying my decision making. Additionally, the fact that it was premeditated suggests that such methods have already been in use. In consideration of this, it may be worthwhile to think carefully about the extent of how this could be utilized and its overall implications. If, as I’ve suggested as a possibility, our dream scenarios are often being tampered with by interdimensionals, and we’re submersed in these scenarios eight hours of every day, then perhaps there exists, to some degree, the possibility of conditioning (or subconscious programming). Reflecting on this, I would remind the reader that virtually the totality of dream experience is lost to conscious memory, however, still exists alive and well within the subconscious and, as would certainly be agreed, has a latent impact on our psychological condition. I’m certainly not prepared to draw any far-reaching conclusions, but as I think I’ve pointed out, there are reasonable grounds here which suggest this is something perhaps worthy of our attention and further investigation.

In conjunction with this topic, I would like to focus attention on the particular characteristics of the dream state of consciousness, which I feel sheds an important light on the nature of dream manipulation and perhaps the mechanism by which it is enabled. When we actually take stock of our awareness while in the dream, there are many peculiarities which should be given some consideration. Overall, what’s particularly noteworthy is the nebulous and shifting nature of our focus and attention span. It’s rather as if our awareness is perpetually fading in and out—acutely aware of something in one instant, yet, in the next, has shifted entirely to something else, leaving all recollection of the previous moment by the wayside. What seems to be driving our sporadic attention is this incessant and irregular stream of thoughts, which on some level appear to be fairly random, however, when broadly examined, clearly show a definite design and planning behind them. Ultimately, and rather interestingly, these emerging thoughts always appear to be generating the outline of a theme or story; a story which very often is curiously unreminiscent of our ordinary knowledge and experience. When seriously scrutinizing these stories, I’m not very inclined to agree that it’s only a matter of subconscious defragmenting. There’s too much that’s extraneous; too much that’s of a recondite nature and inconsistent with the human mind. As for the higher-self, I’m not discounting this source, but for it to be solely derived from there seems questionable, as there are just too many aspects of dreams that are unreflective of higher-dimensional attributes. In consideration of this, I would say it’s hardly implausible to suggest that, in some cases, this stream of thought which is shaping the stories is actually being telepathically projected from an outside source.

As is widely known now, the human mind possesses a natural telepathic capability, which essentially entails the faculty of more or less that of a radio receiver. As a consequence of this, we’re openly subjectable to externally originated thought-forms. For the most part, this isn’t easily perceptible because of the high activity of our normal brainwave state, which, because of its quick oscillation, congests our mind to the point of being non-receptive. However, as we descend into sleep our brainwave frequency slows down and we become increasingly receptive to outside thought-forms. Considering this reality and our obvious vulnerability in not being aware of it, it’s likely this avenue of influence would be exploited. In vindication of this, I’ll briefly highlight a particular moment in a dream where I had apparently been asked about my broad views of society: It was by a girl named Lauren, and I have little recollection of the context, but, as my response, I proceeded to give her a quite detailed philosophy but which, astoundingly, was in no shape or form resemblant of my own views. I suspect there must have been calculation with this, as these views were not only objectionable to me, but were the very views of which I disapprove the most. It was essentially that of the “cut-and-dry” logic, typical of authoritarianism. I remember saying something along the lines of: “The biggest problem with society is the overburden of lazy and unproductive people”—to which I was absolutely stunned in recollection of. Even more curious, and which should not be passed off, was the fact that at no point during this discourse did I ever recognize my extremely uncharacteristic behavior. In review of this—underscoring the distinctive and tell-tale sentiment of the above—it seems more than probable that this was originating from a lower-vibrational intelligence. Moreover, it’s conceivable to me that this may very well be one of the central mechanisms by which dreams are being manipulated. Very craftily, it is being done from the inside out. Thoughts are being projected inward and, through our own agencies, are then manifested outward into the dream.

In closing, we can perhaps conclude here that the conventional model of dream philosophy is, to some degree, incomplete. The reality of dream manipulation is a crucial factor and is most certainly a game changer. Many of us not only take dreams seriously but are consciously deriving information from them, which is then at times implemented into a course of action. It is therefore perhaps important that we are taking into account the possibility of deception. The notion of setting an intention, which could work to some benefit, may not negate entirely the potential of outside influence. It may turn out that there are clever loopholes with this, and as I’ve mentioned the dream plane may still technically qualify as a collective environment, entailing that we may not be capacitated to disallow communal manifestation—just as in third dimensional reality. Furthermore, I think we should acknowledge the fact that dreams are undoubtedly a means of influence over our manifestation capacity, and that our limited awareness of dream manipulation is primarily what enables this. By becoming streetwise to manipulation, we are in a better position to discern their validity and less likely to be swayed by dreams that seem to denote negative portent—which, with many, are a frequent occurrence. On a final note, I would suggest that we remain opened-minded with dreams and continue to explore alternative ideas. Let us not go the way of the mainstream and become rigid in our thinking, dismissive of possibilities which we have not yet endeavored to rule out.

 

About the author: I would consider myself a spiritual advisor who’s focused primarily on the newly awakening—helping to facilitate soul-purpose activation. I see it as central the task of bringing abstract metaphysical concepts further in range of acceptability of the rationalistic mainstream. In addition, I see it as also vital the need to reassess the whole of spiritual philosophy and to establish with greater certainty the veracity of our prevailing beliefs. It is an exhilarating line of work, and I’m greatly honored to take part in it. I reside in Ebensburg, Pennsylvania USA, and I make myself available to anyone who wishes me to expand on anything.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Everything You Resist, Persists!”

Ascension Avatar note: In other words, be aware, view everything squarely in the eye for what it is (‘inner’ and ‘outer’ but primarily ‘inner’), don’t hesitate to improve what’s there and remember ‘shielding-up’ is simply, not resisting your own energetic resilience. 

.  .  .

 

Every time we want to avoid something, it looks like it bumps to us constantly. Being like that, it is actually not some conspiracy, but it is the simple consequences of the universal laws operating: it is the Law of Resistance.

Everything we resist, it persists, no matter what it is.

For example, if we take a look at our past life, we are going to have a lot of memories which will prove the reality of the law in only a couple of moments. No matter what we resisted, it persisted.

For instance, when resisting some negative situation and we force the outside circumstances to be in our own favor as of our wishes, it will only create more sufferance and negativity. Enduring things looks like it squeezes out the energy and transfers it to that thing of resistance. So, we continue resisting, as well as draining the energy inside us.

However, the hardest challenge would be how we actually tolerate a person that is filled with a lot of negativity and attitudinal regularly creates chaos in the family. Also, at our workplace were a lot of individuals that have some negativity in attitude exist, for example, our boss, who always claims to be right, even though he is not.

So, at such times, we should know the way in which we should respond. We will also have to be brave and have the bravery to support ourselves, or some individuals will simply walk over us. However, the goal that we have is to create an inside suspension organization gradually, such as the one of some vehicle which drives on the roads.

Gradually, through some practice of observing our thoughts and breaths quietly, we can permit the distilling of the standard inside mechanism of resistance something which will be unpleasant, so later on, we will have the ability to confront situations like that and become awake and alert about not surrendering to the sudden urge to do the same. Instead, we should attempt being more empathetic and understanding, and fill that individual with some optimistic energy.

This will not be easy, but as the time passes, it will be, if it is practiced. If we can actually do it once, we can also do it twice, and step by step, we are going to come into a condition in which provocations from outside will not make us be out of our balance.

This is a real spiritual growing — remaining unharmed in the middle of the outside challenges and threats. A person that can do that will know that each of those negative individuals who came into his life did not happen by accident, but it occurred as a result of karmic relation.

We can actually win this if we play the correct card and we can also reach not reaction and state of response, so there will be peace without and within.

We have to learn a lot more from nature. When keeping company with it, we are going to learn something from the air, as it has different smells within it, but does not have its own. Our planet is the incarnation of patience. For example, when we look at trees, they are going to teach us everything about the art of not judging, unconditionally.

We are not supposed to not remember that we are not simply a part of this nature, but we are the nature itself, in its totality. The simple difference is that we are actually not aware that we are inseparable from it, and it is the main reason why we become unnatural.

When we are living a non-violent life, trying not to cause pain or hurt people with deeds or words, or when we want to see the wonders of the planet, we are going to grow in real humans that follow the order of the Universe, the principal of cosmic order. Then, the necessity for resistance is going to dissolve forever.
