I’ve been contemplating discernment a lot these days.
I’m conflicted about a lot of the stuff I see and hear coming from all sides.
The “truther” movement, the Q contingency, the press, the government, the currency people, and even some “channeled” information, all want us to hear them and believe that they have THE correct information.
The stories written in the alternative media, on blogs, in chat rooms, on sharing platforms, all have the tinge of intrigue, drama, he said/she said, predictions both dire and wonderful, timelines, etc.
I believe it is quite true that the only way to proceed, at least for me, is to dig way, way down into discernment.
But what is discernment? To me it is feeling, on a very deep “gut” level, of what rings true or untrue.
For me, when I encounter what I perceive to be true and real, it resonates in my upper body, heart and crown and I feel an uplifting.
When I encounter what I perceive to be misinformation or manipulation or even downright untruth, I feel it as a clenching sensation in my gut along with a feeling of repulsion.
The strength or severity of the body sensations give me a sense of the level of trust I can have in the information.
I’ve come to recognize and trust the signals I’m given through the body and have found that they don’t steer me wrong. You may be different in how you feel what is true and untrue to you. Find out, clearly, what that is.
For me, it also means being very clear about my own AGENDA. Do I have an agenda about this subject? If so, then I need to be very clear about what it is and how it shows up in my thinking and perceptions.
Then I go to work clearing my own agenda, coming to neutrality, and finally arriving at being the Observer.
What is the agenda of the person/group making this statement of “truth”? How does that feel in my gut check?
Are the tweets, stories, articles, and statements done to further that agenda. Are they manipulative? How are they worded? Are they combative? Do they contain judgment and condemnation?
The biggest question I ask about any of them is DO THEY COME FROM A PLACE OF LOVE?
I’m following the guidance that we’ve all heard thousands of times. “Open the heart and focus on the Love.” If it doesn’t come from Love, then pass it by.
I’ve observed Lightworkers who get so caught up in the need to have the world move in the direction they think it should, that they jump on the bandwagon of those who claim to have inside information or secret knowledge, and just swallow everything as gospel, creating divisiveness even among the Lightworker community.
My advice to anyone who feels themselves being caught up and becoming a “fervent” supporter of any agenda is to pause, take a step back, and really examine your own beliefs and thoughts until you have arrived at a place of Peace and Balance.
I’ve stopped following certain bloggers, groups, individuals etc., because what they are presenting does not further creating a world that works for everyone.
Yes, we need to be aware of what is happening everywhere. And yes, we need to work to fulfill the Mother’s Plan but, I think we need to lend our energies to uplifting, and the way to do that, I believe, is to first clear ourselves and then proceed with complete discernment.
