Deepest Fear

“Our deepest fear is that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.

We as ourselves: “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?”

Actually, you are not to be? You are a child of God.

Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us: it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. 

As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

– Nelson Mandela

Such wise words to reflect upon, as spoken by an incredibly wise man. 

There is much to be said about fearing our light, more than darkness. Think about it for a moment: how many people get stuck in a rut of darkness and depression? More than should be, that is for certain. On the other hand, how many people shine? Even when we see someone ‘shining’ they are struggling with fear. Quite a complex cunundrum. 

For some reason, it is incredibly easy to slide backwards, into a hole of despair. It is also extremely comfortable for some to stay in that state, as well. 

Making changes can be uncomfortable, especially changes that bring someone from that darkness, into the light. So many fears, whether unfounded or not, obscure goals and prevent necessary change from ocurring. That fear can completely paralyze a person, and create irreversible consequences.

The consideration to give would be to step outside of that fear and self-evaluate. Is the fear truly justified (e.g. surviving a horrific car accident, and later being afraid to travel in a car), or is it something the mind has created as a blocking mechanism; an impedement that slows, and can ultimately stop someone from leading a normal life?

There are times when it is necessary to seek the advice of a healthcare professional, or therapist. Those are very viable means of learning to control fear, and getting back onto a healthy path. There are other times when it takes a few, dedicated moments, hours, or even days of careful introspection, to solve the puzzle and realize the bigger picture.

For those less ensnared by fear, even little nuisances can create barriers and inhibit progress on more of a minimal scale. Even so, the impact still rings true: preventing the occurance of positive change.

Pesky granules of fear stimy the ability to shine. May seem strange, but even the most talented, brilliant and courageous (yes, courageous) human beings have struggled with fear, in a way that would be best construed by definition of the phrase ‘tortured soul.’

There is a need to face our fears, regardless of size, and learn to work thru them. They are put before us as a learning tool; a way to navigate life, and appreciate the beauty and blessings set before us. Our (seemingly) personal fears can also help others. The amount of light cast from a light source (your soul’s shining light), is still light, and can be built upon. That light serves as a beacon to usher crippled souls to a safe harbor.

Facing fear, and testing your light can be a daunting thought and task, but is an enormous accomplishment, and source of empowerment for others who observe your progress. Facing your fears – and tackling them – is one of the biggest testaments of character that equates to a super-intoxicating and addictive drug for the human soul.

Others who observe the steps you take to evaluate (introspection), tackle (self-process, seek counseling, therapy and/ or medication management), and in turn, shine, will be inspired. Just as Mandela stated, “As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Yes, the short version is; it’s that’s simple.

Allow yourself to say good riddance to the fear-driven, tormented soul, and allow yourself to thrive. Don’t sit in the shadows with the curtains pulled shut tight; open them wide and be you. 

Be you; embrace all of your weird, colorful, quirky, silly ways. Employ your unshackled soul with respectful abandon. In turn, your light will help others who have wilted, or struggled in fear-riddled darkness, gain confidence to grow alongside you.

Evaluate. Embrace. Employ. Empower.

The Healing

We all grieve differently – and that is something to keep in mind. The same applies to the duration of that grief. 

When it comes to deep love, we never truly recover from a loss, but we do gain wisdom. That knowledge comes from a private place within our heart and soul, which over time, pieces together a healing.

‘The healing’ is an experience that can take the rest of a lifetime, and should not be expected, or rushed. It takes time.

During times of tragedy and sorrow, we must find strength in those around us, more so, when we share a loss. Comfort and compassion shared is an invaluable blessing that provides hope, even in what seems to be the darkest of hours.

You may be better equipped to handle a crisis, or loss, than someone you know. In turn, your approach is perceived to be strong. A common deception, although not intentional most times, the outwardly appearing ‘strong’ individual may be silently falling apart on the inside.

On the other hand, there are others who act-out, and for whatever reason, have difficulties filtering, or handling their emotions. To some, these people are perceived weak, or emotional – sometimes irrational.

The bottom line is: every human being grieves in their own way. Weak, or strong, the commonality is a connection based upon love. 

Look around and try to understand what is seen, as well as unseen. There is no right, or wrong way to grieve. There is also no time limit to how long one grieves. Quite frankly, grief is both very personal, and considerably selfish.

We can be of great spiritual help to one another at different points in our lives, and that is what makes the wisdom we achieve while healing, so important. We must remember that we are both teachers, as well as students. 

The strong can help the weak, and the weak can help the strong. Rather than let sorrow isolate you, or cause you fear, allow it to draw you to others who you can help, and who can help you. Every moment, be it good, or bad, is part of the healing.

As someone who knows; death is much harder on the living. Try not to let it cause so much strife and chaos in your life that you lose focus of what is most important: the memory of your loved one, and life, itself.

Celebrate the life of your loved one. Celebrate you. Celebrate life, and heal.

Spirit DNA

Spirit DNA

Most of us have heard of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), which holds the genetic coding (blueprinting), of all living organisms. DNA has fast become the gatekeeper and puzzle-solver for many aspects of genetic mapping and identification, from genealogy, medical conditions and diseases, to being used as a valuable tool to help solve crimes.

Spirit DNA: My Theory

I believe that just as our “physical and genetic” DNA has always existed; Spirit DNA has, as well. Just because you don’t always “see it,” does not mean it isn’t there.

Spirit DNA is left behind at the time of death, creating specific positive and negative energy elements in the environment, which can eventually lead to manifestations such as a “ghosts”, or other paranormal phenomenon. Taking it a step further, Spirit DNA will lightly or heavily imprint the environment at the time of death. For those who pass with a Light Spirit DNA imprint, they are more apt to cross quickly – even instantly – whereas someone who passes with a Heavy Spirit DNA imprint may become “stuck” in the environment.

Noteworthy: Light Spirit DNA imprints may linger, simply because they are attached to a home, property, or even person, yet are harmless.

Spirit DNA that becomes heavily imprinted on an environment typically stems from a tragic death, suicide, or accidental death. It does not mean that they cannot eventually cross over, but it does take longer to raise their energy. Sometimes there is even a need to facilitate, or guide the energy, by conducting a cleansing and/or blessing, or even a cast-out, in cases of nasty buggers.

It is important to understand that varying circumstances relative to the manner, and cause of death, can cause a spirit to become confused. I believe this occurs with an awareness of what was transpiring at the time of death, or lack thereof. Imprints can be raised; however, the spirit energy may be in need of guidance. Once they do, be it through facilitation, or by own volition, their “Spirit DNA” will clear.

Love & Spirit DNA

Something that must be considered is that no matter how much love that we surround someone with, it is ultimately up to the person who passes, to let go, after physical life has ended. As much as an individual may have been loved, there are times when they cannot overcome, or even acknowledge the fact that they have died. The Spirit DNA imprint is driven by the mind’s energy at the precise time of death and for some facilitation to raise that energy needs to take place. Love certainly helps, but is not always the answer: The spirit must accept their death.

There are many ways to guide a spirit to cross, and each method can change the positive and negative energy vibrations in the environment. Once a break-through of the Spirit DNA imprint occurs, it can then dissipate and cross, freeing-up the environment and ushering the spirit to a state of peace.

Spirit DNA is the imprinting of the individual’s memory in combination with the time of death, manner and cause of death. The brain, being an “electrical organ,” then sends those memories in the form of energy, out of the body and into the environment. At the final moment of death those memories and the energy, imprint, or “stamp” the surrounding area with Spirit DNA, just as physical DNA is an energy imprint left behind by the physical body.

Interesting, eh?


The Basics of Demonic Oppression & Possession


Subject to debate, and depending upon different religious doctrines, the premise of demonic energy is the same: It stems from a lower order of angels that fell to Earth from God, or the Creator’s grace. They can also be disembodied spirits. Most religious sects and doctrines agree that no matter the origin, demonic energy is malevolent and inhuman, governed by hatred, and looks for every means possible in order to obliterate anything in its unholy path.

Demonic energy fears anything Godly, and therefore reacts by creating aversions to all that goodness and God, represents. An example of this is illustrated when a blessing or exorcism takes place: The demonic energy is fearful of being cast-out and fights the actions to expel it from the host, or environment.

Demonic Oppression

Demonic oppression is a blend of a human’s free-will and lack of control over the physical, mental and emotional state of their Being. In theory, it is something that happens as a result of what an individual does – and does not do. An oppression is something that occurs over time, be it an abbreviated period, or longer duration. The venue is often due to exposure to dark, or demonic energy whether intentional, or unknowing.

Intent to Facilitate

Whether someone chooses to believe they are actively seeking to facilitate a demonic oppression or possession, there is a laundry list of intentional actions that can open the channels and create a conducive environment for a dark or demonic energy to inhabit a space, or attempt to form an attachment on a human. Instances of intent include a willingness to conduct unholy chants, recite Satanic spells or incantations, use of Ouija Boards, actively seeking Satanic or dark energies for entertainment, and misuse of Tarot or other divination tools. Each of these actions opens the door for a demonic force to cross, and makes way for horrific, and often tragic, opportunity.

Once an exposure to a demonic energy occurs, regardless of reason, the facilitation can take on a number of characteristics in the host, including but not limited to: Absence, or loss in the belief and, or fear, of God, conflict with authority, lack of life purpose, committing acts of hatred and, or violence, irrational fear, anxiety, lack of self-control, a hunger for power and attainment through cruel means, hopelessness and depression that is not a result of a medical condition. Through time, these characteristics can worsen and in turn, lead to a full-blown demonic possession.

Demonic Possession

Once an individual has been oppressed, the function of the demonic energy is to fulfill its desire to annihilate. Symptoms of a demonic possession include, but are not limited to: Extremely reckless behaviors such as violence, lack of self-respect and respect for others, extreme verbal and sexual vulgarity, uncontrolled sexual expression and behaviors, obsession with pornography, split-personality, changed appearance (black, or soulless eyes), vocal annunciation, denouncement of all that is Godly, affirmation of Satan, mania, despondency, and thoughts of committing murder and, or suicide.

Regardless, the basis of oppression and possessions remain the same: A demonic energy will seek out a weakened individual (male, or female), and attempt to take over the physical body, in order to carry-out their work. With every oppression and possession, the ultimate goal is to destroy, be it murder, death, suicide or to create mass chaos.

I will continue to elaborate on this topic in the upcoming post that pertains to the Wendigo. Until then, and as always, keep your focus on light, love and positive energy.
