To Just Be

It’s taken the longest of longest times (years actually) for me to somewhat understand the spiritual concept to ‘Just Be’. To just be, one has to gain an understanding of the self. To be specific, to understand our ego and our heart. It was a few weeks ago that spirit finally revealed to me and a dear friend I was with through Aya, my dragon stuffy toy I have in my car…

Her message to me was, “I R B!”. “Say what?!” I enquired further. Aya explained further, “I are be… Instead of saying, I am being… It’s, I are being as we always are”. “Aaaaah, I see!” I exclaimed. “So what you’re saying is that we’ve always been who we are. So we just have to remember that we are christ consciousness already.”

Aya is dragon, so her English is just a little chinglish… I guess she speaks like this to get me to unpretzel my mind to really get the message. “Just be, as we already are” she finished off. Thank you Aya. Thank you. 

In reflection to me, this means we are the gods and the creators of our universe. We are the masters of our destinies! We are harmony, we are heart & mind in union, heart-mind. We are the One. Neo! We’re in the Matrix. We are the peace we seek, we are the knight who came to save us. We are the kings and queens of destiny. We are already well. We just didn’t remember it. We just need to awaken from this slumber.

Since then, more has transpired into my consciousness. Today spirit is saying to me… The spirit of just being is the ability to give and receive without expectation and judgement. This one is still unpretzelling for me. This hue-man is still unfolding. There’s so many subtleties to all these lessons! More to follow in the future I’m sure!

Back to this concept of Just being… 

It’s about the union of two as one, in Unity Consciousness… Harmony. It’s the Christo-Sophia, it’s the Devine Masculine & Devine Feminine, Ying and the Yang, the Dragon and Phoenix finally in true harmonious marriage. It’s when the two join and become one in harmony. Just being as one is. It’s the one with two parts in harmony, allowing flow, balance and rhythm.

Even in chaos, especially in chaos… It’s the human navigating, stumbling and the ability to regain ones footing. To be human, is to experience the messiness of life. It’s in the way we rise and over come that makes us into who we dream to be. It’s the ability to take the ego and let the heart open. To live openly to prepare to live in 5D.

As we navigate this 4D realm of the in between, much gets revealed. Much gets uncovered. When the shadows appear and the triggers are activated by another, hold space for oneself first. Have compassion for the wounded inner child in yourself. For the only ones we can change is ourself really. It’s up to the other if the other wants to change. For we all have free will, the freedom of choice. So let the other choose as they will. For to live as sovereign beings is also to allow others to live sovereignly too. It’s only when we’ve really help nourished and healed ourself, do we truly understand how to help another. From what I’ve come to understand, it’s by being an example and maybe an invitation without binding expectations or judgements, that others might see a better way of being. And still then, it’s their choice how they want to live.

So when these triggers come up, they present an opportunity to face the shadows of the past and to be the parent that you needed then, but in the present time. The now. We have the ability to change the past by being consciously present. And with the ability to reflect and enacting the skills we’ve gained, we are able to be parenting the wounded self right in the moment, in present time. We get to change our stories, and the unconscious narratives that run our lives then become a choice. We get to choose who we want to be and who we are. We gain back our power and life force that was leaking unconsciously. 

By doing so, we also break the illusion of time. When we can access the past, future and the now… then time doesn’t hold too much relevance any more regarding the spiritual, mental and emotional aspects of our lives. Plus our stories of being the victim or perpetrator can be transcended. We can rise above the situation and we get to sit in the seat of the higher self. And when we are ready, we can then draw down the higher self into the physical body to sit within our soul. This is how we ground things into our reality. Thus we really are the captains of our souls and creators of our reality. It’s when we see both sides, we can also hold compassion for all. It’s this union of two sides that split that is rejoining that creates the one self. Unity Consciousness —Love.

If you want to heal this old aspect of yourself, sit with the inner child, gain their trust. Acknowledge the hurts and allow the grief to come up. It would be better to a lot a set period of time to do this so that you don’t wallow in the lower energies for days on end.

To do the inner child work, create a safe space where you have the privacy and the safety for these things to come up. Do it with yourself if you know how to hold this space for yourself or find someone who is able to do this for you. Maybe a trusted and trained therapist, a shaman, counsellor or coach with the needed skills. Only do it for that set period of time and when that time is up, end this process with compassion. Then reassure the inner child that you are always there and that you are taking care of things to the best of your abilities for him or her. Then after, get up, move, ground yourself, dance, shake it off. Shift the energy. Just do something different, something fun to dissipate the lower energies. Sage the room if need be.

If the classic elements are earth, water, wind and fire then the 5th element, ether is love. It’s the void or chi that the Chinese Philosophers talk of. It’s the juice, the magic that imbues and animates life itself. 

To just be… Love is the 5th Element. It’s ascended transcendent Love. It’s the ability to be in harmony, to be well, to embody love in the self. It’s the peace we seek. To just be, as we already are. 

We are Love. We are compassion. We are well. We are as we am. We be as we is. This is when the I AM… is the We ARE. This is the way, this is the path. We are walking two halves into oneness. This is the Devine Masculine and Devine Feminine in oneness, in union in each of us — we are whole as we are, we already are, we are Love. So just be.

A Shamanic View of Disease

In shamanic traditions, a more holistic approach is taken to heal a person. It’s not just the physical body that is looked at, but the spiritual, emotional and mental bodies are also addressed too. In essence, the shaman deals with cause and effect, as is the case with laws of physics.

When the root cause is treated, true healing is achieved. If we only treat the effects and suppress the symptoms, diseases would continue to reoccur. In this way, generational and genetic diseases and conditions can be remediated. Sometimes this means the shaman travels back in time to the original hurt. Since the shaman knows how to cross the veil of time and space, the shaman can change how the past affects the present and the future.

When it comes to shamanic healing there is the medicine of the spirit and the medicine of the body which complements each other. Just like in western medicine, if someone goes to the emergency department in a hospital with an arrow in their back, doctors take action to repair the damage that was inflicted on a physical level. On the spiritual level, the shaman would also take a similar approach in the spirit realm. The shaman would take remedial action to remove the psychic arrow in the auric body and cleanse the wound, so that healing can occur.

With Shamans, diseases are seen as intrusions that don’t belong in the body and enter from outside. It could be a virus, an arrow, negative thought forms or negative emotions. Left long enough, it can become critical due to loss of power, or loss of parts of the soul — thus allowing the disease to enter and manifest in the person.

3 Causes of Diseases in Shamanic Traditions

1. Disharmony
Disharmony, or loss of a sense of belonging can affect a person’s vitality. Disharmony can come in the form of a toxic relationship, job loss or other forms of emotional and mental traumas. Disharmony causes a decrease of personal power, making us vulnerable to diseases.

2. Fear
When a person experiences chronic fear constantly, it can cause an imbalance in the body making us more vulnerable to disease. Fear decreases the ability of the immune system by putting our body into a fight or flight mode all the time. When we are always in crisis mode, there comes a point when there aren’t enough resources to do all the functions of the body properly to stay healthy. In modern psychology and western medicine, fear is also noted to promote disease.

3. Soul Loss
Soul loss is the most serious of the three causes. Soul Loss can cause serious diseases and premature deaths. It can be seen as a serious wound that results in fragmentation of the person’s inner essence often due to trauma. Often it makes the person question who and what they are.

Some Developing Symptoms of Diseases

  • Loss of belonging
  • Low immunity
  • Feeling fragmented
  • Inability to feel or receive love
  • Memory blocks of big parts of your life
  • Sudden apathy and indifference
  • Lack of joy, initiative, or inability to feel joy
  • Serious injury or serious internal diseases
  • A predisposition to suicide or addictions
  • And also sadness, despair and depression

With shamanic healing, healing occurs in 4 stages. In the 1st stage power is increased in the client, like a battery getting recharged. In stage 2, diagnosis happens. It’s where the issue is discovered, the cause is found & the understanding of the effect on the client’s body happens. In the 3rd stage, the client takes over and their own healing process takes place. With the 4th stage, the vital practice of soul retrieval is performed. It’s through retrieving these lost soul pieces, that the client heals properly.

With the art of shamanic healing dis-ease can be reduced or eliminated according to the highest good for your soul’s journey. In a way, a shaman can be seen as a doctor, a psychologist, an alchemist, and even an artist who brings about beauty and wellness to peoples lives.
