Have you ever noticed how garbage attracts flies and other bugs and how a virus morphs and travels?
Have you ever lived in a neighborhood or city where trash lined the streets as a rule? How does it smell; how does it look and feel to be in this type of environment? Do you take out your household garbage regularly and place it in a container for pick-up? Do you consistently clean your body? Do you regularly clean up your energetic garbage: negative thoughts, emotions from the past and resulting present time attitudes, or do you wander around in public with a cloud of dust surrounding you like Pig Pen did in the Peanuts cartoon?
If you were going into a deadly virus zone, would you wear a containment suit to keep you safe from infection? Have you ever thought to protect yourself in much the same way from foreign, possibly harmful energies? Cleaning and tidying, even protecting at times, both our inner and outer energy fields is crucial in creating a stronger or new resonance with positive morphogenic fields. We must be just as astute with this as we are in brushing and flossing our teeth for physical health, maybe more so.
We need to put systems in place, like our morning cleansing rituals, so we don’t forget or avoid this part of our hygiene. Like any practice, it must be become a habit. Once it is habitual and we have downloaded and stored the new program, we can then call on this practice in a pinch, in any moment or in a crisis. If we don’t put it into regular practice though, we could potentially loose the memory completely or our brains have to work really hard to dig the stored information out from under the attic cobwebs when it’s needed.
If someone punched you over and over in the same place on your arm, at some point it would become sore, bruised and then numb. If it hurt enough in the beginning, you would most likely ask that person to stop or get out of their way after the first punch. If someone nearby hasn’t bathed in a week, their body odors become offensive and you would probably move out of range, or at least upwind of this person. On an emotional level, when someone is constantly in some drama or is overtly abusive, I bet you carefully consider how much time you spend with that person.
Each one of these choices to block or move aside creates a type of boundary; we have no doubt, nor do we hesitate, about making these choices as a matter of course in the moment. It’s a no-brainer, like running way from a big crocodile on the hunt. One day we may even be able to let this energy move through us.
Why then, when a more subtle energy comes our way, especially through someone we “need” to be in relationship with like a boss, a spouse or partner, do we avoid making a boundary? What in us sees this as such a risk? At the very least, we could leave them alone for a while and not return until the person shifts the energy in their field. Do you ever become consumed by a negative vibration, believing the energy is your own, suffering through the experience, wondering how you became so disoriented or uncomfortable in your body?
In the case of a boss, a family member or a special event, you may just have to stay put. If it’s impossible to leave or move, then maybe your containment needs to be a protective suit of energy. While you are trying on different suits, you could be asking yourself some key questions. Is this mine or someone else’s; whose energy is this? Is my energy enmeshed with this person’s energy? If so, why? What do I need from them or what do they need from me? Am I matching their energy for a reason? Can I easily unplug the threads of this energy? Is this person using me as a receptacle for their unwanted energies? If so, why am allowing this?
Another really good question to ask yourself is whether or not you are resistant or in judgment of this person. If you are, chances are you are enmeshed in a different way; judgment and resistance will hold it in place, in fact it will expand the energy. Do you have any unfinished business with this person or could there be a similarity in your emotional and energetic footprint? When it all boils down, humanity is from the same mold and no matter who the person is, we are entangled in some way and have all the potential variances in resonance as the next person, even, dare I say, a criminal. The way you operate in any given moment may be very different, yet the opportunity may come knocking one day and surprise the heck out of you!
Energetic boundaries are not brick walls or castle motes that keep you distanced from people. They are simply subtle differentiations between you and the next person that empower you as the gate keeper to allow energy in or not, to allow it to move through you or around you.
Remember Neo in the Matrix? Even though he was awakened and eventually became fully realized, he wasn’t yet actualized and had a steep learning curve toward embracing his mission. At first he ran when he saw the Agents. He eventually used his physical agility and learned on the spot to dodge bullets. Next he harnessed his mental confidence and strength, rescuing Morpheus from the agents’ clutches. At the end when he was trapped in the Matrix, Neo began fighting Agent Smith in hand to hand combat; he ultimately outran them all and on the brink of complete escape, he was gunned down. He died temporarily only because his mind believed he was dead until he was coached back to life again through the love of his soul mate. Upon his resurrection, he stood a second time against the fury of the wagging and rapid fires of automatic weapons, this time saying “no,” in essence, these bullets do not exist. And they all fell to the floor.
One day, we will be in that place of self empowerment and actualization. We will see the bullets and know they do not exist for us because there is no fear; the only thing that really exists is unconditional compassion. As Neo created a new neural network of possibility, he said over and over again, “there is no spoon.” If you haven’t watched the movies, particularly the first one in the three-part series, add it to your Netflix queue.
As with Neo and Jesus both, the Matrix is only an illusion and we have hidden power over all unclean and distorted energies; including the lie that tells us “we are” that negative morphogenic field of energy.
