There seems to be a tremendous amount of clearing going on for me and others around me. The explanation is that, just as the banks are setting up for the transition to NESARA, so also are we lightworkers being prepared for our roles in various projects. And the way we we’re being prepared is to be placed in situations that are sure to fire off our vasanas.
A vasana is an archaic and troublesome behavior pattern that originated in an earlier, similar traumatic incident. It results in an interruption in well-being which we usually call an upset. And it has very little to do with the present situation, and much more to do with our failure to complete our experience of the original situation.
It’s a delicate task, as a writer following the awareness path, to discuss these matters and yet not implicate others. I’ll do my best here because I think it’s helpful to look at these matters, on the premise that more than just us are going through this same clearing process.
Vasanas erupt. They explode. And they have a trigger that causes them to go off.
Sometimes the trigger is a similarity. This horse I see before me looks like the horse that bit me and so my fear is triggered. Getting on board an airplane reminds me of the plane that crashed. Etc.
Sometimes the trigger is additive. This has been done to me so many times, I can’t stand it any more. This is the straw that broke the camel’s back. Etc.
Sometimes the trigger is a go/no go situation. I will not lie about something even to please a friend. An honorable person doesn’t cheat. Etc.
A person following the awareness path can get real enjoyment out of watching their own vasanas go off, although the actual experiencing of the vasana is often not what I’d describe as enjoyable.
The situation I wanted to discuss was one in which a vasana exacerbated a principled stand. The trigger was additive.
The way I described it to myself was that I had heard a certain thing too many times and enough was enough. The result was that I fell into a psychic break with the material in question. I lost trust in it. I lost faith. And, because I see myself as a person who will not be ingenuine with something, I felt I need to distance myself from the matter in question.
The incident threatened to snowball and to undo many valued connections because I felt I had to uphold my principled stand.
Fortunately I have friends who know how to work with a vasana and one gave me a good listening session. I have to say that, at this point, I did not know a vasana was involved. As far as I was concerned, I was standing on principle. I had lost faith. I had to move away from that which I had lost faith in. So far, cut and dried, is it not?
But in the course of discussing what was happening for me, and it took around half an hour of sharing to reach this point, I suddenly burst into tears. Knowing about vasanas, I was able to look and see the hidden vasana.
What I saw was that a person involved in the action in question reminded me of my brother, Paul. And I found myself saying, “No one harms my brother. I will protect him.” I allowed my rage to surface. I sat there for perhaps five minutes rageful and tearful in turns until the vasana had been experienced to completion and then lifted.
Until the vasana suddenly erupted, I was not aware that I was in the throes of one. I thought I was standing on principle. And this is often the case. We aren’t aware of the vasanas that accompany our principled stands.
Once I had sourced the vasana, I took another look at my principled stand and it was gone. I was able to carry on as if nothing had ever happened. So it was the vasana underlying the stand that held it in place.
Moreover, it wasn’t that I had sold out my stand. All the time I knew there was a reason for what was occurring to happen, but my view of that reason was obscured because of the person involved, who resembled my brother. Once the vasana was completed, the reason seemed entirely acceptable to me and I was able to return to the status quo ante.
One additional thing became apparent during this process and that was that we may find we as a society are not well equipped to handle conflict when it arises. I don’t think our generation, for instance, knows a very great deal about clearing with each other, listening, moderated interchanges, or for that matter even network interventions. And this does seem to me a liability.
I see myself and others sitting on undelivered communications. I don’t see a lot of people initiating clearing conversations. I see us shying away from situations that may look or become confrontational.
This is not the same situation that we faced in the Seventies, when we had encounter groups and workshops that could teach us how to communicate and encounter each other. We’re doing things this time as a world, rather than as individuals or even groups. I have no idea how one teaches a whole world the basics of communication. Nor do I have the time to tackle such a piece of work myself if I knew how to do it.
But unless we as a world learn the basic skills of communication, including sharing, listening, clarifying, mirroring, etc., I’m not quite sure how we’ll join together in large projects and how we’ll be able to keep those projects intact when the going gets tough. So far I’ve been saying that the rising energies will handle it, but based on my own performance in the clearing that’s going on at this moment, I’m no longer so sure.
There’s a wonderful opportunity here for anyone who knows how to teach, easily and quickly, basic communication skills, including conflict resolution, to the large numbers of lightworkers who soon will be serving an entire nation or region or in some cases the world.
