When lightning strikes it’s a manifestation of a massive energy finding its way to Earth. It needs to be grounded safely or it wreaks havoc as it blasts through.
This is an exact mirror of what happens when you connect with your spiritual essence. You need to be sufficiently clear and grounded to hold the energy. Whatever is in the way gets shaken out. Clearing is inevitable.
As you awaken to yourself and connect with your inherent spirituality one of the phenomena that always shows up is the clearing process. This is often misunderstood from a no pain – no gain perspective. You’re on a spiritual path, so you’ve got to accept it, it just goes with the territory.
That kind of response is very much part of the old paradigm. It’s a diluted form of a martyr complex, and it’s generally very uncomfortable so it is dreaded. But you can learn to negotiate it with equanimity.
Pro-active Clearing and Grounding
The first thing that needs to be understood, is that as more of the light of your soul flows in it needs to create room for itself and ground into you, into your body and body of affairs. It looks around to see how that can be accomplished, a bit like moving into an old house full of junk that needs to be cleared out before you can settle in. So if you’re in process – the emotional turmoil attendant on opening up to higher frequencies – know that what you’re feeling is what’s leaving. Trying to moderate this process or distract yourself from it, only slows things down. It prolongs the discomfort. It can and will create real chaos in just about every aspect of your life.
If things are going awry in your life, the energy-wise interpretation is
that more of your light is integrating into your physical presence.
To manage this effectively you need to clear and ground.
This process is seldom understood, and it is undermined by social conditioning of the kind that insists upon a “There, there, don’t cry” practice of emotional self-control. This is actually a self-sustaining, self-limiting device of disempowerment masquerading as concern and compassion.
The higher the frequency, power, vibration of the spiritual energy you’re working with, the more important it is to be pro-active with your clearing and grounding. It’s vital to understand this often neglected principle. Because if you continually invoke harsh clearing experiences as a consequence of engaging with the Light, the chances are you will tend to limit your engagement [unconsciously] out of fear of what’s next.
Fear of engaging with the clearing process shuts you down.
It’s probably the most effective single obstacle
to engaging with your own awakening.
