I’d like to repost this article from 2014 because it concerns an important facet of the process of clearing vasanas or core issues. (1)
Oftentimes when people are clearing vasanas, they say that they feel so bad that they don’t want to continue.
You may feel bad. You may even feel as bad as you did in the original traumatic incident.
That’s because, whether you’re recording the vasana or clearing it, you’ll be experiencing or re-experiencing the original trauma and it may hurt. A lot less today than it did then, but even reminders are supremely unpleasant. You can be fooled by this into thinking that what you’re doing is not helping, but it is.
With that introduction, here’s our look at the subject from seven years ago.
“Going Down or Coming Up, Vasanas Feel the Same,”
“The [clearing] process is not always pleasant as you have discovered for many clearings are re-experienced as they come to the surface.” (2)
They describe a puzzling situation. Here we are after so many years of clearing, things and still coming up and they feel as unpleasant as heck. What in the world is going on? We should feel clear by now.
We fail to distinguish between an upset that we project outwards or introject inwards, that adds to our stack of vasanas, and a vasana that’s going off to be cleared and is cleared.
They feel the same. In both situations we feel crummy, hurt, pained, etc. We tend to wonder what if we’re getting anywhere.
But indeed there is a difference.
In the first situation we’re burying ourselves deeper and deeper in our upsets and unwanted conditions. In the second one, we’re releasing our upsets and unwanted conditions. But to do that we need to re-experience those upsets and whether experiencing them and projecting them or re-experiencing them, and releasing them, we feel equally crummy and out of sorts.
Don’t be fooled. If we re-experience them to completion and let them go, we might never be troubled by them again.
It’s a hard birth, as the Arcturian Group says. But it’s what we came to do and it’ll soon be superseded by a state of equanimity and bliss.
Hang on. We’re on our way home now, never again to be prodigal children. The last act of the drama of the old Third Dimension is happening now.
