Thank you for the time away.
The experience of my higher-dimensional Self gradually faded. One interesting side effect was that, as I remained with it, more vasanas or core issues came up that I didn’t even know I had.
And it reminded me to repeat – because I have said it before – that a similar situation may face us after the Reval.
Many of what were suppressed feelings and thoughts will then no longer be inhibited. We may lose our cautiousness. We may feel like gods – unassailable and unstoppable.
Familiar and “new” vasanas – many of which we didn’t even know we had – will likely go off once the “stops” are removed.
A vasana is a complex of conclusions, decisions, reactions, and strategies, all formed during a traumatic episode in the far distant past. Vasanas are designed to keep us from having to experience the unpleasant feelings associated in memory with the original incident.
When the Mother gives us all a fourth-chakra heart opening, that definitely will help. The tsunami of love we’d feel would eliminate our vasanas from our field of experience, for as long as the experience of sacred or “real” love lasts.
It’d make this world work, whereas if we go into abundance with our core issues unprocessed and no heart opening, it’d probably make this world more chaotic than it already is during this time of social and economic deconstruction and reconstruction.
What people do when they leave their vasanas unaddressed is that they often make other people the abusers in their drama or story. Sexually abused by a male, the male we face today becomes the abuser. Ridiculed by a female, the female we’re talking to today becomes the trespasser.
And of course we’re right, which keeps it all in place.
What’s involved in processing a core issue? There are many ways. Some are as simple as to invoke Archangel Michael and the Divine Mother as well as the Laws of Change, Transmutation, and Elimination to take the core issue away. Ask Archangel Gabrielle to fill us up instead with her golden elixir of joy.
That has worked on occasion for me, but sometimes I think our guides want us to actually process the vasana for what can be learned from it.
Kathleen has her process, which works as well. I’ll leave it to her to discuss it. Here’s mine:
(1) Recognize that a vasana is playing.
Many times I’m sure that I’m standing on principle, only to find that a vasana is also involved. If you feel heat in your delivery, chances are a vasana is involved.
It’s equally true that we cannot easily process a vasana until it has exploded and that we can only process it when we recognize that a vasana is actually happening. For me, the default is “Yes, a vasana is playing.”
(2) Name the feeling
The mind files memories away according to feeling. Vasanas associated with fear, hatred, disappointment, etc.
If I want to know, in a rough-sort way, where the memory will be located, I need to name the memory I’m feeling. Dismay? Disappointment? Stress?
(3) Ask your mind to shoot up a memory of the original incident that’s at play.
Take the first image, word, or other symbol that flies by the screen of your awareness. Don’t hold out for a second image because you didn’t catch the first or didn’t like it.
The truth will set you free. If you don’t feel freed up by what you’re finding, look for an earlier incident or ask the mind to shoot you up another image (after processing the first).
(4) Experience to completion whatever thoughts and feelings arise out of your contemplation of that original incident.
Feeling is healing, Kathleen says. Our vasanas are there to prevent us from experiencing feelings we didn’t like. We need now to experience whatever is there and experience it until we feel complete with our reliving of it and the vasana lifts. Avoidance of it leads to skewing of our behavior in all manner of ways.
I mentioned one of the principles of this process, that the truth of the vasana will set us free from it. We can use our knowing of whether we’re going further into upset or the upset is progressively lifting to give us feedback on going in the right direction.
(5) Ask that the vasana and all residue from it be removed.
Since beginning to invoke the universal laws, I’ve become a convert to their efficacy. At the end of my process, therefore, I now invoke Archangel Michael and the Divine Mother by the Universal Laws of Change, Transmutation, and Elimination to take away the vasana, any residue, all conclusions, decisions, and beliefs that it engenders, and all conditioned behavior and to fill any space created with Archangel Gabrielle’s golden elixir of joy.
(6) Choose to rechoose, if appropriate
Sourcing (or completing) our vasana leaves at a choice-point. We’re now able to decide whether we want to keep going in the direction we have been or go another way. Rechoosing without the vasana completed may have limited impact. But choosing when the vasana has been transcended has far more.
The truth may not set us free the first time we process the vasana. The vasana may return and return. But every time we process it, its strength will subside a bit more, until its going off in the end will not faze us. “Oh, that’s my school-patrol vasana. That’s my ‘Don’t tell me what to do’ vasana.” (1)
Other vasanas may lie under the original one. They may or may not be earlier in origin. If, after processing the vasana, you still feel unfinished, look for another vasana underneath.
Folks, if people do not process their vasanas, they stay around forever … or until Ascension. No sense just reading an article on it. We actually have to use the process and dig into the elimination of our vasanas.
There’s a substantial literature on the subject here: “On Root Vasanas or Core Issues” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/spiritual-essays/#30 and “On Processing Vasanas” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/spiritual-essays/#31.
Our vasanas and the conditioned behavior and entrenched beliefs that result from them are the only obstacles to our full enjoyment of the spiritual experiences we’re being offered.
The whole of these, plus our strategies, rackets, numbers and acts that we incorporate into this whole, I call our “constructed self.” We’re deconstructing the constructed self.
(1) I was tired of the school patrol and resigned, only to find out the next day that they were going to have a banquet and receive a really nice pin to wear on their belts. I wanted the pin so bad that I asked my Mom to phone the Vice-Principal and get me back on the patrol. I felt like a weasel and was ashamed of myself.
Shame is the feeling under which this vasana is stored in my mind.
