the Obsession for Protection


A few years ago, attending a masters’ retreat, I witnessed a hallucinating scenario – one of the organizers was getting signals about a massive negative presence. I did not feel a thing, although I can detect heavy energies or low frequencies. She was really under the pressure of this presence, and the vibe passed to some of her students. Headaches showed up promptly, then nausea, then my tourmaline crystal literally exploded.

These “attacks” only happened around her, and they were quite often, like a herd of dark beings was constantly stalking this master. Once separated from the respective group, the negative experiences stopped. Very seldom did I experience what we call a dark presence, and then there was quite clear negotiation about it and my commitment about not interfering with such energies always yielded in the disappearance of the respective form.

Years later, in an Ayahuasca ceremony, such a being showed up and it was visible to more than one participant. Some of them were bothered by it. I chose to envelop it in a thick, pink cloud of love, like a cotton candy coccoon, and the discomfort stopped. The story is longer and it should be the subject of another article, but the event repeated with another group. Using a similar technique, the result was identical – the energy got literally absorbed in the Higher Realms, to be transmuted and recycled. 

A Grand Master gave me the privilege of being attuned to something we call Shinki . In the Japanese tradition, Shinki is the name of the leading consciousness – it is the equivalent of God or Universal Consciousness in our language. I noticed everytime I used it in therapy it worked like a deep, profound, ample re-start of the energy system of that person. I also noticed how it dissolved any thought forms associated to ill programming of the light body.

And then it struck me. These things happen only because we believe in them. They are created  and accepted by the person’s mind, and the therapist can intervene and re-balance the misconstrued creation simply bringing up the level of energy. It is like someone is turning a bright bulb on. There is no more shadow. There was no shadow before, but turning the light on proves there is no shadow.

The electronic environment is full of workshops, crystal remedies, essences, methods and means for protecting against attacks, negative entities, witchcraft, auric depletion, vampires… and so on… and so forth. Let’s cast some light on the subject.

There are a few simple principles:

1. Our mind is the most powerful creation tool. Misdirected, it produces aberations that we might call demons, evil non incarnated souls, and so on.

2. none of the miscreations can interact with someone’s energy body unless that person admits they exist. And accepts these thought forms or whatever other structured, conscious or non conscious energy forms.

3. these lower levels of vibrating consciousness are instantly dissolved, transmuted, re-integrated when the energy of the respective person or place gets a significant boost.

Discipline in keeping the mind on the positive side, coupled with a healthy energy recharge method, whatever feels best for you, should do it. Keep the faith, work on it and you will see how these aberations disappear with fireworks, a poof or they simply, silently vanish.  Be disciplined about staying in the positive side of thinking and practice your recharge regularly. Not only will it prevent more unpleasant events in your spiritual travels, but it will definitely feed that Seed of Light that we are carrying in this human body with the sole purpose of nurturing it and growing it until we realize our splendid godly nature, and remember we are divine beings.

Being Present

be here and now

I owe this article to my friend Nastya, who started the debate :  should we speak more about the concept of being present or about how to do it?  The answer is both. We are here, in the reality knot of the probabilities, having the possibility of choosing the desired path from a continuous series of crossroads. Sometimes, so busy regreting we did not do this or that, or sorry for what we did do, that we cannot see what is presented right before our eyes.

The proposals of Universe are never coming to the central axis of our sight or consciousness. They are always lateral, like side breezes caressing our mind, or marginal glimpses in the visual field, or small, almost subliminal whispers of the higher consciousness. Unless we are present, we cannot receive these precious pieces of information. Sometimes they come in an encrypted form, or this is how our brain perceives them, so if we are not there, we will just lose the moment of perception and, with it, the opportunity.

The same thing happens if we slide into unnecessary worry for the future. Not only we are not present to make the choice, but we also widen the probability path for an unwanted choice in the crossroad. Fear of future, instead of sincere, open belief that everything happening is like a riverbed that allows for our little stream of consciousness to come back to the greater Ocean that has so many names, prevents us from making this apparently strange return. Why should life be about returning and not about going? Because we are like batteries that need to reconnect to the Source in order to recharge. Once the reconnection process happens, we kind of know the way to the plug, time and again, so our autonomy turns from limited to infinite, and we can finally make the supreme, seemingly impossible long journey to who we really are.

It is clear now that the maximum creation potential is in the Now. The dilemma we all had or have – or maybe, after reading this, you are going to have it – is what is the practical way to be present, aware and make the choices enabling anyone to proceed with personal evolution.

It is much simpler than we expect. The easiest way comes from the Theravada Buddhism, and it is about focusing on the breath. Sit or lie down. On the floor, in your bed, on a comfortable chair or outside, in the sun, on a lawn. It really does not matter, just choose the place that makes you comfortable. The important part is to have the type of position and place that makes you worry less about the body. The body should take care of itself.

Now, just focus on Now. With every out-breath. If the mind drifts, do not cling to the focus, do not punish yourself, do not analyse where and why it went. Just re-focus on your breath. On the out-breath, because after the out-breath there is nothing. That nothingness is the seed of potential, of creation, of All There Is. STay with it.  Wonderful side effects might happen: feeling suddenly at peace, quiet, joyful… or more. Just stay there.

Some enjoy listening to the sounds or playing with other senses. Dive into the visual sensation of the clouds floating on the sky, listen to the minute sounds around you, either you are surrounded by Nature or human made environments, examine the scents (that one needs a good setting to avoid annoying ones) and see how much awareness of Now this brings.

As you get used to it, extend the time, bring the practice into the daily routines, and start focusing on being present while you do things. Your sensory experiences will help with it. Relax the lateral part of your consciousness. Signs will appear – shamans have always known that and a part of their teaching is to develop this lateral awareness so that one can receive the input / proposals of the Universe.

Last, but not least, this constant training for being here and now will lead to an enhanced feeling of who you are. Some describe a kind of landing of a deeper sense of Presence, a higher Presence, like we are suddenly immersed in a wider and much deeper consciousness. We call it the Presence.

It may come with the first experience or after a long, long series of attempts. Do not set expectations, just go with the process. Let your curiosity and awareness discover what is there to be discovered, and enjoy each small step forward. Reward yourself for it and patiently go for the next step.

It is like a slow sculpting of Yourself. It takes time, serenity, and clarity of the purpose. Let the circumstances work out the best way for you. Just breathe out, listen, get the perceptions. Then think about what you got during the experience… some have their first conversation with God in such an attempt :). Trust your inner wisdom, the one we call intuition, to validate the experience. And continue.
