In this blog, I am going to talk about those who appear to be disconnected from the oneness. Those individuals who feel that what they do "doesn't hurt or affect anyone else so why should anybody care!?" What brings an individual to the point where they would injure themselves and think no one is affected? Everyone is someone's child, friend, spouse, partner, parent...Everyone is connected to someone in some way. As many of you have done, I too have experienced trauma in my childhood and lived in silence for years. As Gaia once told me, the earth is a giant classroom and we are all here to learn. In order for us to "learn", stuff has to happen and people play their parts to make stuff happen. Do not judge your life experience against another's experience. The lessons are not the same and the depth of the learning is individual.
I am writing about this because I am currently being affected by an individual who is living a dangerous lifestyle. I have spoken with this individual to help them identify how their behaviour is affecting those around them. I have cajoled, I have tried to join them in their world and understand the driving force behind their life and I just cannot seem to break through the apathy. I cannot seem to influence their thinking and help them to understand they are more than what they believe they are, they are more than what they project themselves to be but nothing seems to work. As a shaman, I am very aware that the desire to heal must come from them rather than having me push it on them. How can someone who believes what they do doesn't affect anyone else even be aware that they can heal their fears, beliefs, blocks and barriers? The obvious answer is of course they cannot.
As a shaman, I am left with one clear path with this individual at this time. I must loose this individual from my life and let them continue in the stream of life. At some point, they may choose to heal and if not, it must be accepted that this is a choice they make for themselves. Before I cut this individual from my life, I will remind them of the collective, the oneness and how they are an important part of that oneness simply because they are here. We do not need to achieve great accomplishments or have lots of money or whatever to belong to the oneness. Just by the simple fact that we are here is what connects us. Just by the simple fact that we are perfect and infinite children of God that we are connected to the oneness. Remembering who we truly are is the goal of life and remembering we are loved, loving, lovable and infinitely adorable is what is required of us.
Even though I know this person is clearly on their own path and journey, I am saddened by the resistance and I foresee many difficult times ahead for this person. I harken back to my journey at the same age and recognize myself in this person. By the grace of God, I survived childhood, teen years and the early adult stage of life and many others have done as well. So, this individual will continue on their journey and make life choices they will choose to make. At some point in life, they may choose to remember they are connected to the collective and if they do, perhaps they will seek me out to help them heal. If not me, perhaps another individual.
I thank the universe for bringing this individual into my life and helping me to remember that people must voluntarily step forward to heal. I also thank the universe for bringing you into my life and sharing who you are with me. Have a super day!
