Overcoming Emotional Negativity

LakeMichiganReflection#3 on my list of “10 Reasons to Work With Your Spirit”…

As we tread sprightly through the complexities of life, there can be pitfalls that we have to sidestep in order to maintain our emotional balance and inner harmony.  Even though we’re so careful not to land in one, how do you escape the sinkhole that opens when negative thoughts and emotions engulf us?

Throughout our lives we accumulate negative memories that interfere with our happiness and prevent us from loving ourselves.  So, how do we stop accepting incessant thoughts that lead to cascading emotional turmoil (like guilt, anger, hatred, sadness, shame, self-pity, jealousy, depression, greed, frustration, possessiveness and all the others)?

There was a time when I was regularly beset by negative thoughts and emotions, and I thought it was pretty normal for me to react to them, to accept how they overwhelmed me and sank me into a sinkhole of despair.  What could I do to control them, when they were so powerful and hit me when I least expected?

Over time I was really losing my battle, and there didn’t seem to be anything I could do about it, until I had a thought: “I’m not going to give in anymore…I’m going to fight!”

That new strength of determination brought a whole wave of positive energy into my being.  I immediately began thinking through how I would be able to escape from the intolerable life I had accepted.

Yes, ‘I’ had accepted and created the evolution of my miserable life.  And only ‘I’ could get myself out.  But I needed help and, just when I had the realization that I could fight back, there was a response from within me that helped to urge me forward.  It was my spirit, also pretty weak at that time, but so ready to help me out of my self-imposed quagmire.

Not only was I fighting off the negativity that my past memories were triggering within me but, at that very moment, I encountered a distinct higher-level negative force opposing me.  As I conquered my fear of its presence, I drew strength from my spirit to overcome it so that I could begin my climb out of the abysmal existence I had been accepting.

Not long after, I found my remarkable mentor who was able to interpret and understand everything that I had experienced.  Without judgment, he helped me emerge from the influence of all those negative thoughts and emotions in an incredibly effective way.  It was the turning point of my life – when I learned to work effectively with my spirit and gained knowledge about my higher-level existence.thermal emotions

Although everyone has the opportunity to work spiritually, like most people, you’ve been led to believe that someone else will do it for you.  That’s not true, or even realistic! If you, like me, feel you’re ready to leave the sinkhole behind forever, then you can start by refusing to accept its power and influence over you.

Better still, why not learn how to stop any future sinkhole before it opens?  And what if you learn how to counteract the once-inevitable downhill slide before it gains momentum?  Or what if you stop accepting the advancement of negative thoughts and emotions when they first emerge?

Your spirit and higher self are an invaluable part of you – why not begin to use your higher-level skills to help you overcome emotional negativity?

Why Stay in Body?

Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture mounted on glass flowerPerhaps it sounds very alluring to be floating up out of body into another plane of existence but, as I strive to remain in the positive realm, I’ve chosen to always stay in body in order to fully reject negativity at all levels.

Have you ever wondered about the implications when scientists keep telling us that we’re only using a fraction of our brain’s capacity?  What do you think the function of the rest of our brain is supposed to be?  What if we’re already using the other functions, but we just don’t recall what’s happening at the higher levels of our existence?  Do we coexist in an advanced existence with higher level beings?

There are so many unanswered questions about our existence on this planet.  Just as cosmologists refer to the greater part of our universe as consisting of dark energy, I believe that the majority of my being exists at the spiritual and interdimensional levels.

Back in my late teens, when I was stressed and very overtired, sometimes I used to feel myself floating up out of my body as I was trying to fall asleep.  Just beforehand, I felt very uneasy, as though there was something wrong.  Instead of getting up out of bed, I felt too tired to move.  Then I would feel myself starting to float up out of my body, but I would get a strong sense of foreboding that urged me to retreat back into my form. Once I was terrified during an experience as I perceived a ‘black cloud’ that emanated negativity moving toward me.  I had also found myself floating out of my body during the trauma of being raped by the parish priest when I was 10 years old.

Over time the sensation of floating worsened, the more I resisted the phenomenon and the frequency increased when I was with my ex-husband.  I didn’t feel comfortable with the experience and would try to call out as I held onto the side of the mattress in an effort to remain on the bed.  My body felt almost paralyzed and I would be unable to speak.  Although I tried to share this experience with a couple of people, it wasn’t until many years later that I learned that was happening to me is called a hypnagogic state as one falls asleep.

When I told Leo Jean that I had been experiencing this phenomena and how it disturbed me, he helped me to understand that I had been resisting interaction with negative beings in a higher dimensional state.  In other words, I was using my inherent intuition to resist being drawn out of my body as I fell asleep.  During my work I’ve discovered that people are regularly being summoned out of their bodies to interact at the higher levels or in higher dimensions of reality.

From my perspective, learning to stay in body was a challenge, because I was doing it all the time without knowing it.  Why did I want to stop this activity that some people might find fascinating?  I wanted to stop because I realized that, in order to progress with my spirit into the Light*, I had to stop interacting with negativity at all levels.  All my refusing, bringing in the Light, returning negativity to its source and all the other positive actions I was taking were all being thwarted because I was still interacting interdimensionally in a negative realm.  It was already 6 years since I had started to work with Leo and I was holding back my own progress by accepting summons. Even without my conscious knowledge of this activity, I was still accepting negativity.

Usually the first sign of being summoned out of body is the draining of energy.  So, when I was younger and very tired, the additional energy drain seemed to interfere with the normal process of going out of body and I recalled some aspects of the occurence.  Once I learned to refuse this sensation, there was still much more effort needed.  As my commitment to stay in body became more pronounced, so did the feeling that more effort was being given to draw me out.

Once I made the firm commitment that I was going to succeed at this positive choice, I noticed an increased amount of energy draining that took great effort to overcome.  Over a 3-week period I noticed that I felt great fatigue during the day, even though I was getting enough sleep at night.  Until I fully resisted the summons and made the commitment a reality, I had to limit my sleep only to the physical requirements of my body at night.  In other words, I could rest but I couldn’t nap during the day while I was going through this period of endurance.

It was 21 years ago when I finally succeeded to remain in body, and I identified the moment of success.  One afternoon, after the energy draining was really pronounced, I was resting and resisting the urge to fall asleep into a soothing nap.  While I had my eyes closed, I could feel something brush by my foot.  When I opened my eyes, for a fleeting instant, I could see the shape of an enormous ethereal being that was standing at the foot of the bed.  It was so large that it was standing not on the floor, but at waist depth as the rest of its body went through the floor.  When I saw it, I immediately refused it completely and hit it with the Light.  With that final refusal, the interdimensional being disappeared and I never had a problem with being summoned out of body again.

With that absolute refusal, I felt like I had finally defeated my negative tendencies at all levels.  Even though there are unknown levels of existence that most people have blocked or have chosen not to deal with, there is free will at all levels.  I made the choice to remain in body, in third dimension and in positive reality at all times so that my spirit can progress with me.

In my work I suggest that my clients remain in body and that they refuse summons at all times.  Most are surprised when they experience more energy and feel more in balance as a result of their efforts.  Some have described being summoned as “extreme sleepiness right in the middle of a business meeting” or “having my brain sucked out of my body” as they refuse higher level summons.  In addition to having more energy during the day, their rest during sleep at night is enhanced.

Above all, the most beneficial effect of choosing to stay in body at all times is that I keep my commitment to both my spirit and myself to remain in positive mode.

Ousting Negativity – Part 2

(…Part 1)

Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture mounted inside 4 glass starsChildren would seem to be the most vulnerable to the influence of spiritual negativity, but they are actually very adept at combating negative interference.  From their neutral innocent standpoint, young children are inherently sensitive to the spiritual realm and already understand how to deal with it.

From early in life children are enticed to interact with beings that exist in higher dimensions and, while adults call this imagination, it is very real.  Sometimes, when a child senses the presence of an inter-dimensional being, it will be in the form of something that begs their trust, like a friendly ghost, an angel or a beautiful fairy.  Rather than immediately accept the impact of such an encounter, a child’s first reaction should be to refuse and throw Light* to hit the being.  If the being is positive, the Light will give it energy and it will sparkle its own spiritual Light.  If the being is negative, it will retreat or vanish when hit with the Light.  If more children were aware of how to use the Light in self-defense, fewer would suffer from the interference of negative beings that feed off of their energy.

As creatures of instinct, we all have the choice to react with fear or defiance when threatened at all levels of our being.  If you react in confidence by refusing first, fear will not be given the opportunity to present itself and break down your defenses.  A child’s imagination can yield powerful results when counteracting negativity, as children are constantly being challenged in their efforts to remain in a positive state.

An example from my early childhood might help to explain how a child whose spirit is helping them to resist the pervasiveness of negativity can stand up to a coercive invitation to interact in a negative realm.  While I don’t remember most childhood dreams, this one stands out significantly.

When I was eight years old, I awoke in a dream to find what I recognized to be a ‘witch’ sitting up beside me in my bed.  (She looked like the witch   from the “Mighty Mouse” cartoon.)  When I saw her, I was petrified and stood up on the bed to face her.  The witch told me that she had brought me a gift, and held out a necklace made of round stones that I should put on.  When I refused her gift, she told me that she had come to take me away with her.  When I kept telling her that I wasn’t going to go anywhere with her, she wouldn’t take “No!” for an answer.  As she tried to break my free will, I remained steadfast and didn’t allow her to break my resolve.  As a child I perceived the being that appeared to me as a witch to be ‘bad’ and I was not going to give in to her.

Finally, after what seemed like a very long time (and was probably only a few split seconds), I thought of something.  I told her that, if I were forced to go with her, I would have to say good-bye to my parents.  The ‘witch’ agreed and allowed me to get out of bed and go downstairs to say my farewells.  When I returned, I brought my father with me, wielding a gun.  The witch disappeared and I woke up, trembling, in the tranquility of my bed.  My father often worked nights, so he wasn’t even home, nor had he ever owned a gun.

Although at the time I didn’t consciously know how to work with my spirit, my spirit knew how to help me to use my imagination as a tool to properly refuse while in my dream state.  Many of our higher-level encounters occur in the dream state, so it’s important to learn how to bring positive knowledge to all levels of our being.  If I had accepted the offer of the necklace, I would have accepted some sort of inter-dimensional loyalty to that being.  If I had accepted the summons to leave my body, I would have accepted and succumbed to whatever unknown terms went along with that agreement.  Fortunately, even as a child, I chose to be positive.  After that point, I went through the hardest part of my life, but I still refused to give in to all the negativity that continued to challenge me.

My spirit has been helping me all my life, but I had been conditioned to let go of that all-important connection to the highest part of myself.  Thankfully, I reconnected with my spirit and will continue to learn and, hopefully, inspire others to work within with their own spirit.

My work with Leo Jean has brought me many lessons in how to deal with spiritual negativity, and next I’ll share the story of how a young man was tricked into responding to almost exactly the same enticement that I faced with the ‘witch’ in my dream.
