In my last blog post, I predicted that the outcome of the UK’s election would produce a third shock to the established political system. I linked my prediction to the tragic mass event of the Manchester bombing of the Ariana Grande concert on May 22nd and explained that this “terrorist” created event was, like most acts of violence, spawned from a deeply rooted belief in our collective unconscious—the belief that we are unworthy.
Any individual that invests (albeit unwittingly if indoctrinated) their own energy in support of this belief is on a slippery psychological slide down the slope of self-esteem ending in the perpetual torment of feeling powerless in the world. From my last Blog:
If you believe that you are unworthy in some way, you cannot believe that you are a uniquely powerful being. Terrorists want others to feel as disempowered, as fearful, as terrible, as Continue reading “Awakening to our Shift in Consciousness Through Tragedy”
The “rule of three” is a common feature in communication. It’s found for example in literature and writing in general, rhetoric and public speaking, and the art of comedic delivery. (And there it is again, in that sentence!) The Latin phrase “omne trium perfectum” (every set of three is complete/perfect) conveys the same idea as the rule of three. For quite some time, we have preferred things to be in threes. Now when a long-held belief system—one that appears so obviously “right” as to be unquestionable—shows signs of uncertainty in the human psyche, the rule of three often comes in to help us take notice of its predicament.
It often takes three intuitional prompts for an individual to become aware of an important belief’s instability in their own psyche so that they might go on to examine its validity. At the collective level of the psyche, for the majority to be made aware of a faulty Continue reading “May mayhem in Manchester may affect May’s ambitions”
How to be responsibly responsive and dissipate your fear
In Part 1 of this blog article I said that most people will be experiencing just two feelings now that Donald Trump has begun his Presidency. Fear and excitement. If you’re feeling predominantly fearful (anger, frustration, and resentment are reflections of fear) then you’ll need to be in full control of your responsive actions if you want to stand any chance of changing the reality that’s disturbing you. You must have a responsible mindset if you are to be effectively response-able.
Feelings are independent energy forms that alert your conscious mind to information about to transfer directly from your inner (spiritual) self. They often act as “emotional-signals,”[i] telling you that you’re creating emotional energy within you. And that emotional energy has a desire to be expressed. If you’re feeling excited by events then you are in an excellent mental position to Continue reading “Now Trump’s in, What do I do About My Fear? (Part 2 of 2)”
In my last post (Will Trump trump Brexit?) I said, “It doesn’t matter who’s elected [as President]. What crucially matters is that we take heed of the psychic communications encapsulated by the feelings and emotions the events stir up within each of us.” Now that Trump has the Presidency, there are now two feelings, backed by a flooding of emotional energy, at the forefront of your mind—steering the focus of your imagination. These are fear and excitement—perhaps in equal proportions—but whatever your allegiances, fear will be the first to wrestle with your attention.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re not an admirer of Trump, a Democrat or Republican, an American national or otherwise, white, black, brown, or purple, male or female, straight or gay, in a minority or a majority, informed or uninformed, interested or apathetic—you will be experiencing a surge of emotional energy originating from the very depths of our Continue reading “Now Trump’s in, What do I do About My Fear?

Arachnophobia – symbolic of our fear of disconnection?
After lunch, I headed over to the teaching room for the start of sessions. I picked out a chair from the circle placed around the room and sat down. As I waited for my fellow students to arrive, my thoughts turned to my conversation with Karina. Her remarks on the symbolism of spiders as told by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon, was both encouraging and intriguing to me.
I’ve always had a professional fascination with the fear of spiders. In my counseling work, I’m aware that treating arachnophobia requires a different approach from other phobias and irrational fears. The therapeutic technique I use from Energy Psychology methods has its own distinct protocol. Furthermore, when it comes to irrational fears, arachnophobia beats all. Interestingly, it is the most prevalent phobia in the Western world—yet apparent not so within indigenous cultures.
- What is it about spiders that puts them top of the scary things list?
- Why is this phobia such a significant part of the human condition?
Our Western rational minds cannot figure this out. Our fearful response to spiders far outweighs their inherent threat to our survival. After all, the majority of spiders are quite harmless and their physical presence is hardly an imposing one—unless they gang up of course.
