As the veil of corruption around the world is lifting, waves of confrontational energy continue to enter the Collective Consciousness. And as other newsworthy misfortunes surge into the news media, emotional upheavals go on to agitate a sense of loss and disorientation.
Between wanting to enjoy the holidays in peace, and wrangling with startling news headlines, we are all trying to process the extremes of energetic polarities.
In the meantime, we are also edging the boundaries of sympathetic tolerance. Irrational thoughts and behaviors are in a state of heavy fluctuation. It is at a degree where flow of healthy and meaningful emotional reciprocation is becoming more repressed.
I feel it is important to address that since early November, many people are still going through a range of emotions. Thank goodness that shifting the calendar to 2017 offers a new starting point for psychology’s sake! That alone brings a sense of uplift and alleviation from some of the stress. Bear in mind though, that turning the page on the calendar does not magically vaporize existing emotional afflictions, or realities we still need to face. Rather, these issues still need attention and healing.
The receptive and loving culture our spiritual community treasures, is not aligned to endure battle against a mass barrage of hostility, grief and pain. Though we manage to cope with struggles, peace-of-mind is a primary tenet of our way of life. The presence of incompatible vibrations diverts us from connecting with our true nature as open-minded, loving, accepting and kind beings.
So, what kind of energy are we dealing with at the moment exactly, and how do we manage?
Three Destructive Influences
There are three influences in a stage of rapid cycling in the Collective Consciousness at present. The dissenting energies are named “Three R’s.” These low-frequency vibrations are running recklessly through thoughts, words and in our actions in varying heightened degrees:
- Resentment (Animosity)
- Resistance (Inflexibility)
- Retribution (Revenge)
Many spiritual practitioners are finding lately, that their interactions are attached to some type of aggression or hostility, where it had not been a habit of expression before. For example, badmouthing, blaming, shaming, sarcasm, and cynicism. Also, ill-wishing on others, withholding emotional exchange (empathy, sympathy, compassion), exerting righteousness and other passive-aggressive behaviors. These are all manifestations of the 3-R’s cycling. This repeating chain of actions can even progress to a psychological shut-down. Hence, we detach and no longer accept relevant input, even if it can bring resolution to any immediate conflict.
Resentment, Resistance, and Retribution, is a ‘formula’ that steadily and assuredly conjures enemies. It works in a way that invokes victimization seamlessly and often unconsciously. Sadly, in the process, the human spirit is seduced into aligning with corrupt energies that continually feed on destruction and disruptive behavior. From this, we most often see the consequences and the casualties of the cycles before ever realizing this cascading series of actions ever started.
On the home-front, the 3-R’s breeds anger, hatred and fuels all kinds of abuses. On a global level, leadership under the influence of this formula will threaten to initiate war. Furthermore, it is the process by which current wars continue to persist.
The rise in these energies that I am observing in The Collective is cause for concern. At any rate, if we do not disengage from these influences to disarm this cycle, then we risk continuing to escalate aggression and hostility in The Collective to the realization of mass violence.
Breaking the Cycle
So, how do we approach the new year and not allow ourselves to fall into acting out with the same callousness we resent? Or refrain from adopting oppressive behaviors that we already resist? And, how do we refuse to respond with spiteful behavior when the need for validation or retribution becomes overwhelming? What ways can we sidestep a path known to lead to destructive outcomes? How can we shift out of this low-vibration consciousness?
It is important to acknowledge the following things first; at a very basic level, any argument we have witnessed or experienced goes through this cycle. The longer and the more intense an argument becomes, the more cycles of Resentment, Resistance and Retribution the argument is going through.
While the 3-R’s are regarded as undesirable, they manifest as a natural response to feeling wronged. They should not be denied their space to pass through, or be invalidated as unreal. Using the ability to recognize when any of the 3-R’s arise, allows us to let the feelings come and go. Actually, the cycle is broken by acting on two words: awareness and mindfulness.
To break this cycle, spiritual wisdom suggests we employ self-discipline to avert destructive patterns:
- Understand that experiencing certain emotions doesn’t have to lead to carrying out certain behaviors.
- Set boundaries so that uneasy feelings can process without also giving them space to dwell unchallenged.
- Let go of the need to control how others ‘should’ perceive the world, according to your reality.
- Honor your ability to connect with higher vibration energy and pursue creating a strong bond with this connection.
Supportive Holistic Energywork
Fortunately, there are all sorts of strategies, rituals and techniques that can help guide us back to a more enlightened consciousness. The desire to be proactive and preserve healthy mental well-being activates a promising shift.
Lightwork with Crystals: The healing crystal that works well to counter these influences while emerging as an ambassador for peace is Ametrine. It is designated as the stone to work with in the first month of the year. Working with Ametrine will help deflect energy that is normally persistent with triggering emotional agitation and potential confrontations.
Ametrine is a mix of amethyst and citrine quartz with energies of both stones bonded together. Within amethyst is awareness, mindfulness, higher consciousness, inner peace and tranquility. These qualities promote the healthy, mental well-being that helps break the cycles of destructive influences. And, in citrine, are the powers of balanced esteem, self-discipline, amplified protection from external negativity and abuse. The stone also encourages the opening of pathways that promote emotional flexibility, levelheadedness and healthy living rationale.
Conscious Mitigation: Our words and actions going outward from self should align with a vibrational frequency that is helpful, nourishing and that invites prosperity. Reciting mantras and affirmations is a simple, amazing staple used for shifting consciousness toward peace and healing. We can also shift our light into a different spectrum by setting an intention during meditation to cultivate inner peace.
