Poor-Sweethearting

May 11, 2017

We often talk about the Chironean process, whereby we take something that we Reject – often accompanied by Pain or even Severe Pain – Despair for instance, and convert it to Miracles.  When we’re Feeling great Pain such as Despair, it’s very difficult to Detach our Identity from the Pain.  But Pain is always much more manageable when we Feel it rather than Being it.

We often abbreviate this process by calling it “Poor-Sweethearting,” because the easiest way to put it to work is to say to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair, aren’t you.”  That simple statement is Magic, because by saying it we’re stepping out of our previous Identity – Despair – and stepping into a New Identity, as a Compassionate Witness.

Eugene Gendlin, the creator of the Focusing process, wrote his PhD dissertation on what actually worked in psychotherapy.  He observed a large number of counseling sessions that used different methods and theories of Healing, and concluded that it didn’t much matter what method or theory was used; counselors that were successful were those that Empathized with their clients.  Those that didn’t Empathize didn’t have successful outcomes with their clients.

Which is exactly what we’re doing by Poor-Sweethearting, Empathizing with ourself.  Tapping uses the same principle, when we begin the process with “Even though I’m in Despair, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself. 

When we Poor-Sweetheart ourself, we shift our Perspective.  We’re no longer looking out from the Perspective of Despair, we’re now looking in from the Perspective of Compassion.  Einstein supposedly said that you can’t solve a problem using the same thinking that postulated it, and that’s exactly what we’re doing, were changing our thinking, our Perspective.  And Poor-Sweethearting ourself is literally all we need to do because the next step is to Change the Subject, like we do when we’re PIAVAing.

If we don’t Change the Subject, our old Perspective takes back over, and we’re stuck with the same unfunctional Perspective on the same problem.  So we Poor-Sweetheart ourself, and then we just go about our business.  We may not even notice it when Miracles happen.  Miracles are simply things which are beyond the range of Possibility from our old Perspective.  Once we Change Perspectives, the range of Possibilities Changes, and Voila, Miracles.

Alternatively, before we Change the Subject we can sit with ourself for a little while after we Poor-Sweetheart ourself, because often we can hear or Feel a Child’s small voice answering us from within.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re really Feeling Helpless, aren’t you.”  “Well, there’s nothing I can do!” she might reply.  If we can develop a dialog with these Inner Kids of ours, that’s a goldmine.  They have untold information about how our Limiting Beliefs formed in our current Lifetime, and that information can help Liberate us from Self-Sabotage.

I certainly don’t claim to have invented Self-Empathy, but the Poor-Sweethearting process came to me after I had refused induction to Vietnam, and I was waiting for the FBI to come and arrest me.  I spent a lot of time working over many different possible actions and possible consequences in my head in those days, and Despair was never far away.  Of course it was not my first Experience with Despair, but it was a Powerful and Extended Recurrence.

I was impressed today when Daniel Scranton Channeled a more-Neutral version of the same process…

 http://danielscranton.com/the-power-of-acceptance-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“Greetings.  We are the Arcturian Council.  We are pleased to connect with all of you.

“We have always been willing to accept where you are in any moment, as a collective and as individuals.  It has been this acceptance that has allowed us to see beyond where you were in the moment, and this has given us the insights that we knew you would be able to receive at some point.

“Your willingness to accept your current circumstances in your lives will enable you to shift.  Acceptance will enable you to loosen your grip on your current set of circumstances, and that will assist you in creating something new, something more to your liking, something that you will more readily be able to enjoy.  The process of acceptance is like anything else. It doesn’t happen all at once.  It happens in stages or steps.

“First, you must be aware of something, and then you must allow yourself the reaction to it.  In other words, you’re still going to feel your emotions, even though your goal will be to find a place of acceptance within you.  After you have processed whatever emotions come up within you regarding your circumstances, you can open yourself up to the possibility that what you are experiencing in the present moment is actually serving you in some way.

“And once you come to that conclusion, it becomes easier for you then to accept the circumstances you are in.  And when you see how something serves you, you also see how it is temporary and anything that you need to do in order to move past it on the physical level.  The change becomes clearer to you, and the steps that are required to make those changes become evident.

“Most importantly, when you are in acceptance, you are not in a state of judgment.  You are not criticizing yourself for being where you are, and you are not in resistance.  Therefore, you enable yourselves to find some comfort in your current situation, some relief, and you give yourselves the necessary ingredients to catapult you into a better future.

“We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Self-Love and Genius

March 17, 2017

As usual, Michael Roads is right in tune with the “Stars,” writing in his “365 steps to a happier more conscious life” email (http://int.michaelroads.org/) as if for the simultaneous Stations (Strengthenings) of Ixion (Forbidden Genius) and Sappho (Self-Love)…

“There is no higher-Self and lower-self; there is only Self

“As I have often written, Self is who you are.  When I refer to self, this is the aspect that relates to separation and identity.  Some people call this the ego-self.  The problem with this is that these people often indulge in attacking their ego, claiming that the ego must die before Self can be realised.  This is nonsense.

“It is Love that brings freedom from the illusion, and Love does not attack any aspect of who you are to achieve this.  Love and accept yourself for who you are, the way you are, right now.  Treat identity-self lovingly, gently, and with great care.  Always, always, always . . . choose Love!”

Ixion was the psychopath of the Greek Pantheon, creating all manner of cultural havoc until Zeus cornered him.  Rather than punish Ixion though, Zeus, liking Libertarian males as the Founder and Archetype of Patriarchy, gave Ixion a second chance.  With that second chance, Ixion set out to seduce Zeus’s wife Hera.  That Zeus didn’t tolerate, so Zeus bound Ixion to the Sun, to forever spin across the Sky in Fire.

Of course the behavior Zeus couldn’t tolerate in others, was exactly the behavior that Zeus perpetrated repeatedly on other women.  Some authors attribute upwards of 150 children to Zeus in the various versions of Greek Iconography.  This is a good example of the “Funhouse Mirror” through which we see our selves.  If it occurred to Zeus that Ixion was simply Mirroring Zeus’s own behavior, then Zeus becomes a bit of a tyrant, reserving those sorts of Adventures only for himself.

More likely, Zeus failed to recognize the Mirroring, as we are wont to do when we Judge others for the behaviors or attitudes that we are unable to Witness in our self because it would conflict with our Limiting Beliefs, or trigger the Held Emotions that we’re unwilling to tolerate.  An illustration of how our Judgments, when exposed to the Light, are doorways into our Stuck places.  Hence the punishment of being strapped to the Sun, to the Light, and hence the burning Pain of Ego Death from Spiritual Fire.

Here is some excellent Perspective on one of the greatest tricks of the Patriarchy and Power-Over in general, a behavior which for some weird reason people are naming “Gaslighting.”  In my day it would simply have been called a Mindfuck, but that may not be polite enough for the DSM…

A picture is worth a thousand words, and Gaslighting is illustrated here…

In the process of Zeus’s punishment of Ixion, Ixion grandfathered the Centaurs, Equine-Huper hybrids – Zeus fashioned a Cloud in the image of Hera, and the father of the Centaurs was the result of Ixion’s tryst with the Cloud.  We’ll let your own imagination play with any Atlantean metaphors about the Cloud that our Computers mate with today.  Of course our most famous Centaur is Chiron, master of Pain and Miracle, and metaphor for Separation.

An interesting and very useful Perspective on Chiron, from…

https://shiftingthroughlove.wordpress.com/2017/03/16/chapter-12-the-build-up/

“…a dream message from a guide who called himself The Hierophant.  His message was to ‘follow the 8 winds’ and he also said, ‘Within a moment you will be changed.’  My research indicated that the Hierophant was a typical part of the tarot deck often also known as the High Priest.  Further, he can also be known as Chiron, the wounded healer.  Further research showed the 8 winds as a reminder to avoid attachment to those things which are very desirous while also not avoiding things that are very painful.”

The Hierophant stands for the Fifth Harmonic – Learning and Teaching, while the Eighth Harmonic is about “alignment and balance” and “piercing the webbed veils of illusion, delusion, and deception” (Angie Arrien, Tarot Handbook, p.55).  The part about “the 8 winds as a reminder to avoid attachment to those things which are very desirous while also not avoiding things that are very painful,” in addition to being the core of Liberation from Archetypes, is for me an intriguing addition to the concept of Rebalancing.  

And “Within a moment you will be changed” is the hallmark of Chiron, as the Leap from Despair to Miracles that results from the successful Shift to a New Perspective that, for instance, Poor-Sweethearting can accomplish.  

It also sheds further Light on the Mjolnir or Thor’s Hammer (a third planet at the Far Midpoint of a Square) as Lightning or Epiphany, since the Mjolnir is a pair of Trioctiles, or the combination of the Third (Love with Wisdom) and Eighth Harmonics.  A Waning Trioctile is after all a Quinoctile, combining the Fifth and Eighth rhythms.

Fight Song

January 29, 2017

I continue to be blown away by the Channeled Energies, for example…

Resist the temptation to add more negative energy to world conditions, but instead consciously allow love to flow to them regardless of what you are seeing.  Love is all there is and is therefore the key to and the glue of every solution.  Outer conditions are quickly lifting many into the realization that love is the only power and thus the only solution to every situation.  Many who never before considered love beyond the human sense of it are awakening.

This does not mean that you are supposed to like everything see, or that you are not allowed an emotional response, but does mean that as spiritually evolved beings you are now able and required to start looking beyond appearances and recognize that what you are bearing witness to is the final act of a powerful play about separation, one that has for eons and still is serving as an  ‘awakening school.’ 

This is Channeled by Marilyn Rafaele.  I highly recommend the whole message, as there are many other Jewels in it.  You can find it at 

https://rainbowwaveoflight.wordpress.com/2017/01/29/arcturian-group-message-january-29-2017-marilyn-raffaele/ 

Marilyn’s website is http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html , but once she Channels another message, you won’t find this one there, and I find that she doesn’t always update her “Archives” immediately.

Every time I read these kinds of suggestions my Skeptic quietly says “It’s really the Lizards saying this, to keep you from Resisting them.”  I’ve told the story before of how, when I saw the movie The Corporation about fifteen years ago, my thoughts were all “Oh shit, we have to go back the the Trenches and Barricades again.”  Then I walked out, and as I did I could feel the Planet Breathing, the sidewalk subtly rising and falling as I walked.  In a drainage pit I saw out of the corner of my eye a seven-foot green Being who clearly sent the message that “No, we have to Meditate our way out of this.”

But the Real impact right now, in the current Sedna-Lilith Yin Gate about Recovering our Self-Sovereignty by Bringing our Unconscious Fears into Consciousness, is that what I’m calling “my Skeptic” is really an Unconscious Fear of being duped.  In a Both/And World, that Skeptic on my shoulder has a Tail, not Wings.  As long as I call that voice my Skeptic, the Fear is Unconscious.  Once I see it as a Fear, it becomes Semi-Conscious.  This Energy is very subtle, so moving it from Semi-Conscious to fully Conscious is tricky.  

When I try “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Scared, aren’t you,” the Inner Response is Denial, as the Energy steps back into the Shadows.  So I try a PIAVA ( https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/ ), our reliable process for interacting directly with the Unconscious – “Ganeshi My Love, please Remove All Obstacles to my Safety and True Guidance.”  Then I realize that my Fear of being duped is a Fear of looking like a Fool.  So I try “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Proud, aren’t you,” and the little devil puffs up and struts about on my shoulder.  

I get a more Honest Response when I try “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Scared of looking like a Fool, aren’t you.”  He says “Well, yeah!” and sits down on my shoulder to chat.  He has no Shame about it at all.  Progress.  Not sure what to say, after a pause I say to him, “Hi Honey,” give him a hug, and it occurs to me to Thank him for Keeping me Safe from Humiliation all these past years during which Humiliation would put me into Shame and destroy my Self-Confidence, often for years at a time.  The Energy Surges up my Spine.  Bingo.

Here’s another Validation, from Daniel Scranton…

http://danielscranton.com/a-better-life-a-better-world-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“You’re just going to waste energy by railing against the corruption that you see, and you are just going to get depressed if you focus on what is not working for you in your personal life.  When things are not the way that you want them to be, of course you must face the emotions that come up for you in response to those conditions, but it is much easier for you to face those emotions with your eyes closed.  

“And with your eyes closed, you are not focused on the circumstances and events in your life and in the world around you.  You are focused on yourself.  This is where you have the opportunity to enact your own policies.  This is where you have the opportunity to connect with your own dreams, your own desires.  And this is the opportunity that you have for feeling for what you are summoning forth, and then you can use that energy to create a better life, a better world, a better galaxy and universe for all beings.”

Again, I highly recommend the whole Channeling – it’s short besides.
