An issue has come to my notice several times recently, so I guess I need to give it some attention. It’s about violation, and how we unconsciously give energetic permission for it.
In my years as a student of spiritual and subtle energies I’ve seen many weird, many wonderful and many abusive practices. One of the most abusive situations that arises is when sexual projection masquerades as spiritual advancement. Let me explain one of the most common ways I’ve seen this happen …
Somebody turns up in your life who has a high level of psychic intuition, healing insight and ability to work with subtle energies. Of themselves these are beautiful gifts to be able to share. But most of us have been trained to view people with these gifts as more advanced, more knowledgeable, better adjusted, more conscious, more awakened … etc. … than we are. Because of this you can be ready to allow the “wisdom” offered to override what you feel in your own heart without thinking.
That’s not so bad in itself. Part of the process of learning to trust yourself and be in your own power is to learn the effects of giving your power away to an inappropriate authority. What can often happen though, when the possessor of that gift has done insufficient of their own clearing work, is that their insight becomes contaminated with whatever darkness they haven’t cleared. Very few people have cleared their shadow sexual issues, so guess what.
The real danger is when one of those people offers you their insight WITHOUT SPECIFIC INVITATION, and because there’s some kind of resonance in you [remember everybody has some kind of issue or energy block – it’s what we’re here to clear] you accept their insight as a truth.
It’s most likely that the issue will not be “up” or relevant in that moment. But because of your resonance with it you own it as yours. Let me be very clear about this:
IT IS NOT YOUR ISSUE IT’S THEIR PROJECTION,
BUT THE MOMENT YOU OWN IT AS YOURS
YOU IMPLICITLY GIVE THEM PERMISSION
TO ACCESS YOUR ENERGY FIELDS ~ YOU INVITE THE VAMPIRE IN.
You are then vulnerable to energetic manipulation from whatever dark energies have hitched a ride on their psychic insight. Sometimes it’s those dark energies that provide the insight. And the people holding these are not aware … They believe they are doing good, being of service. This is particularly toxic when it masquerades as providing healing for blocks to your sexual energy. Once you succumb you can be stuck in it for years.
Unfortunately, this kind of violation is not uncommon where people are searching for their personal spiritual connection and exploring different healing practices and modalities. The resonance in the issues identified will often be misread as evidence of a past life connection that must be explored sexually.
And because more women than men are generally to be found exploring their spiritual self-development, it can seem that women are once again victims of male abuse. But whilst this may be an abusive male energy it is not exclusively active in men. There is a dark force present in this process that demands a form of sexual compliance on the basis that you are choosing to remain stuck if you refuse [women practice this as much as men]. But there will always be a tiny voice whispering in your heart that there’s something not quite right about it – especially if it’s something that needs to be kept secret.
One of the reasons many spiritual traditions avoid sexuality is just this process. It’s not at all easy to clean up our sexuality. We’ve literally been in the dark with it. So the tendency has been to place it under restrictions and taboos, and pretend it’s not there. What has happened over the centuries is that immense damage has been done that is only now beginning to surface.
Whenever you are offered unsolicited wisdom or insight, pay attention to yourself. Trust the small voice in your heart. If it doesn’t feel right for you, then it’s not.
