Benevolent vs. Malevolent Spirits: How To Attract One And Shun The Other
Optimism Is The Key
Let me start by saying this: There is NOTHING to be afraid of. Literally nothing. I'm not saying you won't sometimes be afraid. That is perfectly natural. I'm just telling you there is nothing to actually be afraid of. Ever since I transcended the madness of the earthstar chakra, people have been asking me how I managed to do it. "What makes YOU so special?" people sometimes ask me. "Well, nothing, really", would be my response. "Why? Does somebody think I think I'm special?"
They would change the subject and quickly ask, "Are you sure there is nothing to be afraid of?"
When it comes to kundalini, shamanism and psychic channeling, there is definitely nothing to be afraid of. But if you are one of those people in one of those early stages of kundalini and you are asking yourself that very question, then let me ask you some questions and it should help to clarify things.
Have you ever taken someone's life deliberately or accidentally?
Have you ever violently assaulted someone?
Do you affiliate with any organized crime syndicates?
Do you have an occupation that at least to a significant degree disagrees with your principles but refuse to quit because of the money?
Do you habitually lie and cheat to get what you want?
Are you routinely rude to people because you think material wealth makes you better than others?
Do you hate the opposite gender or other races and cultures just because?
Do you routinely wish bad things to happen to other people?
Do you belong to the Church of Satan or any similar cult or group?
Do your pleasure centers enjoy pain and cruelty instead of what most would consider pleasurable?
Have you ever committed rape? (This would include pedophilia and of course date rape)
Do you abuse or mistreat any members of your family especially children?
Do you use religion to cover up fraud, larceny or other crimes?
Are you involved in the building of weapons systems?
Do you belong to a royal family, in particular the British Royal family?
Do you bully people or mistreat animals or commit arson?
And the final question (and this is VERY important): Do you think you are a 'god'?
If the answer to each and every question is a solid and confident 'no', then there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of. I know it can be scary, those first two phases, because what you believed before and what you will believe in a more mature state may be polar opposites and you feel yourself changing by the day. Don't worry. It's just your ego getting its ass kicked. The bigger your ego the more of an asskicking it is going to feel like. Trust me, I had a massive ego. Since then It's been taken down a notch or twelve.
The reason I start with this particular list of questions is because I feel the people who fall into one or more of these categories add up to a greater number than most would think, but still a minority in the grand scheme of things. I think most people exhibit an average morality: far from sainthood but also far from evil. If you genuinely love yourself, or at least like yourself, you have very little to worry about. Remember, it's your ego that needs to be cut down to size, not you as a whole.
Nonetheless, many people ask me questions about kundalini. In respect to the idea that we now live in the post-apocalyptic world where even the man in the street feels his kundalini rising, I will list a few of the most frequently asked questions on the subject in regard to those still struggling with the early phases where the ego cannot be what it had been and still survive.
And yes, I will also answer them.
1. What is the best way to communicate with the higher self?
Unfortunately, this is not something I can provide a straightforward answer to. The interpretations of kundalini by individuals are as diverse as the individuals themselves. Therefore, just as you go to the store to buy carpet, wallpaper or pillowcases, how you communicate with your higher self is entirely up to you. But I will say, based on experience, once you have chosen this method and it becomes routine, this communication will take on many diversified elements. I started by using bibliomancy because I'm a writer and love to read the dictionary. Once I got a handle on that (I guess about two years ago), I started to hear voices in my head, I had shamanic visions, I astral project, I feel sensations in my chakras and I pretty much sense my higher self communicating with me and showing me things pretty much everywhere I go. The best part is that now my bibliomancy readings are so ridiculously accurate I can hardly believe it myself. Some also ask how I first came in contact with my higher self and, many people do NOT like the answer but, the thing is that I simply asked. One night while falling asleep I thought, 'God, I'd like to meet my higher self'. And the next morning, let's just say as Keanu Reeves puts it in pretty much every movie he's ever been in, "Woah!"
2. What do the chakras have to do with kundalini?
Just about EVERYTHING. The coil of energy passes through not only the seven chakras in the physical body, but also the two in the lower outer body and the four in the upper outer body. If you do yoga, you may feel the energy rise though the seven physical chakras, but it will not change the chakra you live in. Do not do yoga until you have researched it thoroughly and determined it to be the right thing for you. There are many ways to activate and grow your kundalini. If you take yoga prematurely or impulsively you may end up harming your aura. I know it sounds silly but I'm dead serious. Drum circles, Osho meditation and joy appearing from nowhere out of the darkest depths of depression are also potential manifestations of kundalini growth.
3. Why does my higher self ridicule and make fun of me?
If this is you asking this question, you have no idea how lucky you are. Really? Your higher self makes fun of you? Count yourself lucky. Be happy. Be gleeful. Literally, REJOICE! Basically, your pal is telling you that sarcasm and practical jokes and the occasional temper tantrum are just about the worst things you have ever done. Do you know who Gary Renard is? He is a student and teacher of A Course In Miracles and author of Disappearance of the Universe and is one of the world's most respected spiritual philosophers when it comes to communicating with one's higher self. Even his higher self ridiculed him mercilessly for being a smartass and a slacker. No one is immune. Everyone has an ego. And that ego needs to know its place. And that place is reserved for subordinates. You need an ego to accomplish things sometimes, but if you allow the ego to rule you'll have problems. Remember, the ego has no chance against the higher self, which is why it preys on the part of you that fears the higher self. If you can make the ego take a seat when not needed, you can do just about anything. This is why the first two phases are such an ordeal.
4. Did you ever have suicidal thoughts while in the early phases?
Yes, and quite profoundly. Believe me when I say that this is totally normal. Please DO NOT kill yourself, but it is quite normal, especially in the Earthstar phase to experience anxiety, depression, self-inflicted aggression, you name it. Trust me, just stick it out. The horror you feel in this phase is nothing compared to the joy of rising above it when and if that may happen. Yes, it's true, some people do not ever rise above this phase. Adam Lanza obeyed his higher self when it told him to kill little kids. Even had he not died in Newtown that day he'd have been forever tormented by the higher self. If you forsake the higher self for the ego, the higher self will tell you to do unspeakable things for you are not fit to survive, let alone reproduce. Then there are people like David Icke who think the reptilians are still coming for us. If you make a profitable business out of your Earthstar delusions, you will likely be stuck there.
5. What exactly are animal totems?
Animal totems are represented in art going back to very ancient times in many different cultures but, most predominantly in American Indian culture where the shaman of a particular tribe would envision the form of an animal in relation to a human subject. There are many sources for researching this so I'll be brief about it, but this is why David Icke thinks we're under sway by extraterrestrial reptilian conquerors. This is because most politicians are reptilian by nature, that is, cold-blooded and deceptive. This is not to be confused with felines, who are hot-blooded and deceptive. Basically, the Bushes and Clintons are reptilian and the Obamas and Pauls are feline. Of that I can be reasonably certain.
The Earth Star Chakra: The How, The Why And The Don't Be Stupid
The Earth Star chakra, as it relates to the individual who dwells in it, is a nasty, combative, anti-hedonistic place where you WILL (as in you will NOT have a choice) fight against your higher self. This level of combat is necessary, because you are learning to stand up for yourself, you are learning to integrate with your higher self and you are distancing yourself from the euphoria of the ego you experienced in the Earth heart where you first met your higher self. Remember, if you are in the Earth Star and your higher self is ridiculing you and that's the worst part of the ordeal that is worth mentioning, you are lucky. In fact, you are one of the chosen few. You are a teacher's pet, literally, and the teacher (your higher self) is giving you an easier version of the test so you can get one of the highest grades in the class. I have frequently had remembrances of the Earth Star frequencies when observing someone else in the same situation and have gotten answers from the higher self about expedients and 'inside information' that not many are privy to.
"But why?" I asked. "What makes me so special?"
"Do you remember?" it began to ask. "A few years ago? The controversy of the Mayan/Aztec calendar? When practically everybody else was expecting the fire and brimstone treatment you said that everything was actually going to be better."
"Yes. I remember that."
"It's just that you actually dared to say it. That things would get better. Much better. If you thought asking Judy Meagher to the 10th grade Amnesty International dance was a leap of faith, then this one was more like an around the world in 80 seconds flight of faith."
"So now what?"
"Just continue on your path and everything is fine. You're surrounded by temptation, but thanks to the sensitivity you have to your chakras you'd have to be a glutton for punishment to give in to it."
"What? You mean the fact that I haven't had sex in seven years but still can't help but be compelled to reject the several offers I get a day?"
"Yes. Well, they're all prostitutes. Not in the way you mean, but they only have a root chakra experience to offer you and they want in return something you do not want to give. This is why you feel nausea in your solar plexus in the presence of every single one of them. You're still attracting these women because you're lonely and you watch too much porn. You need to cool it with that or I'm just going to send you more of the same until you learn to ask for what you really want."
"And what do I really want?"
"You know. You remember asking for it. You want to get married and have children. I want that for you too. And since you asked for it, I will not let you become diseased and therefore unmarriageable. When you meet a woman who is marriageable and genetically compatible, you will not feel that nausea. In fact, you will feel nothing but pleasure in your root, sacral, solar plexus and heart chakras. When you feel the pleasure principle in all four of those chakras, I will activate your throat chakra so you can court and woo her. C'mon Odysseus, It's time to stop assaulting the Cyclops and get out of that cave if you get my meaning. Penelope has been faithful this whole time and can't wait for you to return to dry land . . . . LOLOLOOLOL!!!!"
