Addicted To ‘Getting It’

Get a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comOne way to improve yourself, or change your life, is to gain understanding either through a teacher, a therapist, a nutritionist, a personal trainer, further study or research, and so on. One can then use your newly acquired understanding to implement change, which will also change your energy, because you implemented change you understood.

However, many people gain new understanding, but remain stuck in their inaction, their fear of taking action, of making different choices. Think about how many people you know who understand or ‘know’ how to eat healthily, how to exercise correctly, or to not jump into bed with just anyone. Then think about how many of those people put their understanding into actual action in their lives. You see my point?

Some also use understanding to get stuck. Everything has a double edge, light and dark, Yin and Yang. The art of living is a moving form of balance. Some people demand of themselves, others, even of Spirit, to be ‘given’ understanding, before they will take action (instead of working to gain that understanding for themselves). As if being ‘given understanding’ will somehow be a kind of protection, or guarantee of success.

This kind of errant thinking has become one of the mainstays of the alternative spirituality and personal development industries. People are paying lots of money to listen to talks, or participate in workshops and seminars, where they create a narrative, such as being a descendant from Atlantis, for example, as a way to ‘understand’ why they behave the way they do and why their life is going down a certain path. For some people their newly gained narratives for understanding can ultimately fuel their ego, left brain, and imagination for decades.

Best of all, if one is busy creating a narrative, you don’t have to take any real risks, because the narrative can only exist within the confines of your current paradigm, the existing boundaries of your own imagination. If you are using words, you are using your left brain. End of story. So, you are ‘understanding’ only what you already understand, maybe with a slightly new twist, similar to the adorable stories children concoct when they try to explain how the world works. In this case, these adult seekers are the ‘children,’ and Spirit listens and talks to them like they are four years old, because they have made it clear that is all they are willing to handle, or accept.

We insist that our inner guidance talk to us. We demand a narrative that ‘explains’ everything. This is not bad in and of itself. This is how most people begin on a path of either self-growth, or a spiritual expansion. It is a fine beginning, but if one is still in the same place a decade later, well, how is that working for you?

Some of us have a mellow life path, so we can stay with this kind of method indefinitely, as their trail in this life is not that challenging, and their soul evolution in this life is more about recovery and rest, rather than growth or expansion.

But for those of us who are getting hit hard with emotional instability, poor finances, physical challenges, loss or bereavement, making bad choices, and so on, and have tried therapy, and read every alternative book there is on spirituality and self-help, and attended all the personal development workshops, yet still seem to be repeating the same patterns, may need a radically different approach. People like that finally need turn to a higher version of Spirit, a version that does not primarily teach with concepts, words and stories.

If you are stuck in this way, it may be time to give up ‘understanding’ with your left brain, and instead work with Source. But you will need to allow yourself to be led, step by step, to a place beyond your current cognition, paradigm, or even your imagination. This will take faith, and the courage to follow what you are given by faith. Many religious scriptures and sacred texts are filled with others who achieved this. Why? To give you courage, because it is both terrifying and amazing to simply live only with Higher Guidance, and to develop both the courage and the skill to work with only with faith.

Faith is only transmitted by the language of energy, just like deep art. There is no understanding in the beginning, just a ‘sense of something,’ of your heart being touched, of your soul being moved, somehow. If you are meant to rationally ‘understand’ anything, it will be granted to you, at a much later date, after your energy field has been changed, shifted, so you will have the capacity to receive this new material that you previously could neither make sense of, nor handle. There can be no real understanding until after you were changed by the experiences Source took you through, step by step, in faith. Now the ‘understanding’ part is completely irrelevant, because you have changed so much, that it no longer even interests you to ‘get it,’ because you now are it.

When you are working with Source, you are not working with language, nor will you be saying at any point, “Oh, now I get it.” If your guides are talking to you with words, giving you a narrative you can immediately understand, they are probably lower level energies. It is not of Source. With Source you will be required to step forward in faith and you will not be able to explain your choices or actions (to either yourself or others) until your process of new learning is complete. Any logical insight you need to gain will be given to you via hindsight, sometimes even years later, but never before you are making the necessary changes.

To get started on this path you will have to change “I got it,” to, “I don’t know yet,” in order to be open to guidance from Source. You will have to refrain from making up narratives to explain or justify your actions, or feelings, or precognitions. You will have to be able to accept step-by-step guidance in place of a narrative. Only by working with Source can you be taken to places beyond your imagination, beyond your limited intent to manifest from your current imagination.

By the way, if you are not working with a human teacher who actually handles Spiritual Energies or has an actual spiritual practice, or if you are not practicing sobriety, you might have a tough time getting started on this path.
