Understanding Your Internal Deceiver

move forward with spiritual counseling & coachingAs the year moves forward and time continues to shrink, more challenging situations seem to be coming our way, bringing many of us to the point of serious physical issues or emotional turmoil, confusion, and depression.

It is as if we are experiencing the true density of 3rd dimension for the first time, and we are forced to take a good look at our physical bodies, their needs, and the reality we’re creating on a daily basis.

There are brighter times ahead, we just need to continue forward without listening to what I call our internal deceiver. As Einstein put it, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” It is a matter of understanding that 3rd-dimensional reality is an illusion we are leaving behind and that we are being pushed through the density—with its physical and emotional hell—to be able to do so. Let me explain.

Everything you experience comes from your perception. There is nothing you see and believe as real that does not come from the projection of your own mind. If you stand up and turn around, right where you are, you’ll see what I mean: absolutely everything you perceive arises from your standpoint, and you cannot perceive anything from a different perspective. The same applies to your whole life—it occurs from the projection of consciousness through your mind and you cannot perceive it exactly like anyone else.

Your Life Is Your Spiritual Movie

You are a little piece of the Divine, an “encapsulated” soul with the illusion of individuality, and as an extension of this Infinite Consciousness Continuum, you have the creative potential to crystallize consciousness into matter. Just think for a minute: everything that was ever created came from someone’s idea, dream, or imagination. In truth, it was already there, as part of the Infinite Consciousness Continuum, but it manifested through the creative mind of an individual. It appears to be real and tangible because we all share the same mind and creative potential (our collective unconscious).

It is, however, not solid; everything we see is just an electromagnetic vibration, particles of light vibrating at different frequencies to create shapes and colors. It’s similar to the projection of a movie on a screen. The movie may seem very real and material (3-dimensional), but it is just light projected and filtered through a series of still images that were previously recorded or impressed onto a film.

Your life is also like a movie, except that the light (consciousness) is projected through the still images formed by the past impressions and experiences accumulated in your mental field. It is the ego-mind that colors your present perception with past impressions and makes you believe that they are real. It holds you in that illusion to keep you “safe” within the mind frame of what is familiar—from your upbringing and environment as a kid; from the defense mechanisms you created to belong (to family, community, culture, etc.); or the habits and addictions you acquired for emotional safety or comfort. Our greatest addiction is to our thoughts and beliefs.

As 3rd dimensional density is dissolving and we move into a higher level of consciousness, the ego-mind perceives this shift as a form of death, not only because we’re transitioning through 4th dimension (which up until now we’ve perceived as death), but also because letting go of what is familiar and makes us feel like individuals (or individual egos) is threatening. If I am not this false “I-sense” that I have always believed to be, then what am I, right? If I have to let go of it to shift into higher consciousness, that means “I” am dying—the ego-mind that I have identified with is, anyway. This is the great deceiver that has held us back and continues to drag us into self-doubt, fear, despair, and depression every step of the way.

Why Would I Deceive Myself?

This false “I-sense” is a deceiver because you are not your ego-mind, you are not your physical body, and you are not the self-image you have created to function in a dysfunctional world—as a man or woman, parent, spouse, professional, partner, etc. Yet it is this sense of individuality that allows you to experience the world in your own unique way and express who you are: your experiences, your dreams and desires, and your individual qualities and features.

It’s a tricky situation because you are and yet you are not who you think you are, and discriminating between what’s real and what’s false is difficult, especially if you try to do it on your own. Your ego-mind has been ruling your life all along and does not give up its control easily; plus, it knows you better than you and creates blind spots to prevent you from acknowledging the truth and stepping up to a truer sense of self to thrive.

So your ego-mind continuously tries to hold you back from accomplishing your dreams and fulfilling your purpose because it wants you fixated to the complex yet distorted self-image that you created while growing up: the one that makes you feel afraid, insecure, vulnerable, unworthy, unloved, or responsible, self-sacrificing, invisible, and so on. It wants you to remain in the past, trapped in the familiar “safety” of that self-image, and this is why it is a deceiver.

It makes you believe that what you think and feel are current thoughts and feelings when in reality they arise from still images in your past—impressions from past experiences, interpretations of your reality as a kid, the invisible language of your upbringing, and the memories that made you shape a reality that would continue reinforcing and creating more of the same. How can you be an assertive, confident, thriving adult when you internally still perceive things like a kid?

You are, however, a complex being with a divine spark and creative potential, able to perceive and express who you are in a unique manner—in a way that nobody else in the Universe can—and you are also capable of transcending the illusion of 3rd and 4th dimensions to step up into your true nature and inner power. Whatever is going on in your life right now is urgently prompting you to embrace your light, your power, and your purpose.

This can only be done by dropping all the emotional baggage (and its manifestations in the physical body) that holds you back and binds you to the past. In other words, it’s time to face and let go of your deceiver and start co-creating the reality you truly desire, even if it means being in an uncomfortable place for a while. It is time to release the illusion of safety and allow yourself to live on the edge of a new world—one that reflects a truer perception of yourself and a better future for the planet.

Trust that you are guided, that everything is going to be ok, and develop radical faith. In truth, this is the only thing to hold on to that is real right now. Once you have the courage to remove your blind spots, let go of the past, and move forward to keep your balance, the light, joy, and abundance of life can be yours. So keep on riding!

Contact me to receive compassionate guidance and support in these times of spiritual awakening and rebirth. I’d be more than happy to help you see what you cannot see. This is the time to invest in yourself and create the future you truly want and deserve!
