Throwing Energy

A guest message from Jim Self

energy exchangeMany years ago, when I first began my conversations with the archangels and ascended masters, Master Kuthumi said to me: “To enter and remain in the fifth dimension you must master every thought, every emotion, and every action. Every moment.” Cautiously, and with great respect (and without grimacing or rolling my eyes), I replied, “Well, it looks like I won’t be entering the fifth dimension anytime soon.” Kuthumi smiled and said, “We shall see.”



Thus began the pathway we call Mastering Alchemy—the pathway to master ourselves so that we may enter and remain in higher levels of consciousness. How you respond to the quickly increasing noise and drama during this Shift is a wonderful and consistent training ground for becoming masterful.



How do you respond to an unexpected situation? Do you absorb it and let it affect you physically or emotionally? Do you internalize it as stress? Do you react and complain? Are you sarcastic? Demanding? Do you cut the person off at the knees and reject them? (All third dimensional reactions.) And then how do you respond when someone else reacts and throws energy?



Do you match them, go down to their level, and throw back? Or do you take a break and see that they are revealing a great deal about their own pain? Pain speaks very loudly sometimes.



Email exchanges can be a fun place for watching energy being thrown, and for watching if you throw it, too. Emails to businesses are somewhat ‘anonymous,’ and therefore easy to hide behind. Notice if you forget there may be real live people with feelings (and intense issues going on in their office) on the other side of that ‘send’ button. Apologizing for your lousy behavior can be more difficult than managing it in the first place. The drafts folder is there for a reason. Write it once, save it, and read it out loud later.

How are you presenting yourself?
Machine Gun Irritation: Send a progression of five complaining emails, minutes apart (around midnight is best), each expecting an instant response. Be sure each one gets louder and bolder and redder and nastier. No need to apologize for your behavior when you are helped that afternoon. You are the customer after all.



Cut Them Off at the Knees: Complain and threaten to quit and ‘take them to court’ if you don’t get your money back. You’ll get faster help and maybe extra gifts.



Sarcasm: It is very easy to throw this energy in emails. If the recipient calls you on it, you can always blame the innate troubles of email communication.



Poor Me: Act like a victim. “I’ve just lost my job/house/mind. I have cancer/leprosy/ emergency.” If you can make them feel sorry for you (it is not your fault you are in this situation), you might get extra attention, scholarships, and free gifts.



Hider: When the unexpected situation arises, do not do anything at all. It was probably your mistake/misunderstanding/bad vibes that caused it. Go eat some chocolate and drink a beer. The company is probably too busy to bother with you anyway.



Ripples on a Still Lake: When one throws energy, it creates a ripple effect. This is very much like the concentric circles that form when you toss a pebble into a still lake. Ripples are created that move out to touch and influence others. If I were to punch you (throw negative energy at you), you might turn to the man sitting next to you and punch him. He then turns to the woman sitting next to him and insults her. She carries that energy around with her until she gets home. She then yells at her son, who then kicks the dog, who then… you get the picture.



Because I began that ripple by throwing energy at you, it is my responsibility to clean it up. Not an easy thing to do when, by the next day, tens of people (or more) have been affected by my rippling energy.



We have all thrown energy at others in our lives. During this time of Shift, it is now urgently important to become aware of and change this habit in ourselves. It is possible to master every thought, every emotion, and every action. Every moment.



Your job is to be a big, solid boulder in the rippling lake. You are the boulder that keeps the ripple from continuing to touch others. The master neither passes the energy along to others, nor absorbs it into her space. The master transmutes the thrown energy and gives it back to the giver in a higher vibration of kindness, upliftment, and grace.



First, be the example of what you want to experience more of.

Identify Your Energy Drains

boost your vitalityReleasing what’s stagnant or remains unfinished in our life can free us to reclaim the power of NOW. Here are three ways you may be draining yourself and how to restore your energy for optimal wellness:

1. Commit to finish those lurking items on your ‘to do’ list. Identify your top 5 unfinished projects and take inventory of how much energy dissipates there, limiting your sense of vitality.

2. If a certain person always leaves you feeling drained, it’s time for an honest heart-to heart, or to politely limit your interaction by stating the amount of time you have to chat.

3. Conversely, if you aren’t feeling great about a past deed, and cannot contact the person involved, choose an action now to symbolically make amends.

Seven Steps for Overcoming Ego’s Hold on You

A guest message from Wayne W. Dyer

egoHere are 7 suggestions to help you transcend ingrained ideas of self-importance. All of these are designed to help prevent you from falsely identifying with the self-important ego.

1. Stop being offended.
The behavior of others isn’t a reason to be immobilized. That which offends you only weakens you. If you’re looking for occasions to be offended, you’ll find them at every turn. This is your ego at work convincing you that the world shouldn’t be the way it is. But you can become an appreciator of life and match up with the universal Spirit of Creation. You can’t reach the power of intention by being offended. By all means, act to eradicate the horrors of the world, which emanate from massive ego identification, but stay in peace. As A Course in Miracles reminds us: Peace is of God, you who are part of God are not at home except in his peace. Being is of God, you who are part of God are not at home except in his peace. Being offended creates the same destructive energy that offended you in the first place and leads to attack, counterattack, and war.

2. Let go of your need to win.
Ego loves to divide us up into winners and losers. The pursuit of winning is a surefire means to avoid conscious contact with intention. Why? Because ultimately, winning is impossible all of the time. Someone out there will be faster, luckier, younger, stronger, and smarter-and back you’ll go to feeling worthless and insignificant.

You’re not your winnings or your victories. You may enjoy competing, and have fun in a world where winning is everything, but you don’t have to be there in your thoughts. There are no losers in a world where we all share the same energy source. All you can say on a given day is that you performed at a certain level in comparison to the levels of others on that day. But today is another day, with other competitors and new circumstances to consider. You’re still the infinite presence in a body that’s another day (or decade) older. Let go of needing to win by not agreeing that the opposite of winning is losing. That’s ego’s fear. If your body isn’t performing in a winning fashion on this day, it simply doesn’t matter when you aren’t identifying exclusively with your ego. Be the observer, noticing and enjoying it all without needing to win a trophy. Be at peace, and match up with the energy of intention. And ironically, although you’ll hardly notice it, more of those victories will show up in your life as you pursue them less.

3. Let go of your need to be right.
Ego is the source of a lot of conflict and dissension because it pushes you in the direction of making other people wrong. When you’re hostile, you’ve disconnected from the power of intention. The creative Spirit is kind, loving, and receptive; and free of anger, resentment, or bitterness. Letting go of your need to be right in your discussions and relationships is like saying to ego, I’m not a slave to you. I want to embrace kindness, and I reject your need to be right. In fact, I’m going to offer this person a chance to feel better by saying that she’s right, and thank her for pointing me in the direction of truth.

When you let go of the need to be right, you’re able to strengthen your connection to the power of intention. But keep in mind that ego is a determined combatant. I’ve seen people end otherwise beautiful relationships by sticking to their need to be right. I urge you to let go of this ego-driven need to be right by stopping yourself in the middle of an argument and asking yourself, Do I want to be right or be happy? When you choose the happy, loving, spiritual mood, your connection to intention is strengthened. These moments ultimately expand your new connection to the power of intention. The universal Source will begin to collaborate with you in creating the life you were intended to live.

4. Let go of your need to be superior.
True nobility isn’t about being better than someone else. It’s about being better than you used to be. Stay focused on your growth, with a constant awareness that no one on this planet is any better than anyone else. We all emanate from the same creative life force. We all have a mission to realize our intended essence; all that we need to fulfill our destiny is available to us. None of this is possible when you see yourself as superior to others. It’s an old saw, but nonetheless true: we are all equal in the eyes of God. Let go of your need to feel superior by seeing the unfolding of God in everyone. Don’t assess others on the basis of their appearance, achievements, possessions, and other indices of ego. When you project feelings of superiority that’s what you get back, leading to resentments and ultimately hostile feelings. These feelings become the vehicle that takes you farther away from intention. A Course in Miracles addresses this need to be special and superior: Special ness always makes comparisons. It is established by a lack seen in another, and maintained by searching for, and keeping clear in sight, all lacks it can perceive.

5. Let go of your need to have more.
The mantra of ego is more. It’s never satisfied. No matter how much you achieve or acquire, your ego will insist that it isn’t enough. You’ll find yourself in a perpetual state of striving, and eliminate the possibility of ever arriving. Yet in reality you’ve already arrived, and how you choose to use this present moment of your life is your choice. Ironically, when you stop needing more, more of what you desire seems to arrive in your life. Since you’re detached from the need for it, you find it easier to pass it along to others, because you realize how little you need in order to be satisfied and at peace.

The universal Source is content with itself, constantly expanding and creating new life, never trying to hold on to its creations for its own selfish means. It creates and lets go. As you let go of ego’s need to have more, you unify with that Source. You create, attract to yourself, and let it go, never demanding that more come your way. As an appreciator of all that shows up, you learn the powerful lesson St. Francis of Assisi taught: “…it is in giving that we receive.” By allowing abundance to flow to and through you, you match up with your Source and guarantee that this energy will continue to flow.

6. Let go of identifying yourself on the basis of your achievements
This may be a difficult concept if you think you are your achievements. God writes all the music, God sings all the songs, God builds all the buildings, God is the source of all your achievements. I can hear your ego loudly protesting. Nevertheless, stay tuned to this idea. All emanates from Source! You and that Source are one! You’re not this body and its accomplishments. You are the observer. Notice it all; and be grateful for the abilities you’ve accumulated. But give all the credit to the power of intention, which brought you into existence and which you’re a materialized part of. The less you need to take credit for your achievements and the more connected you stay to the seven faces of intention, the more you’re free to achieve, and the more will show up for you. It’s when you attach yourself to those achievements and believe that you alone are doing all of those things that you leave the peace and the gratitude of your Source.

7. Let go of your reputation.
Your reputation is not located in you. It resides in the minds of others. Therefore, you have no control over it at all. If you speak to 30 people, you will have 30 reputations. Connecting to intention means listening to your heart and conducting yourself based on what your inner voice tells you is your purpose here. If you’re overly concerned with how you’re going to be perceived by everyone, then you’ve disconnected yourself from intention and allowed the opinions of others to guide you. This is your ego at work. It’s an illusion that stands between you and the power of intention. There’s nothing you can’t do, unless you disconnect from the power source and become convinced that your purpose is to prove to others how masterful and superior you are and spend your energy attempting to win a giant reputation among other egos. Do what you do because your inner voice always connected to and grateful to your Source-so directs you. Stay on purpose, detach from outcome, and take responsibility for what does reside in you: your character. Leave your reputation for others to debate; it has nothing to do with you. Or as a book title says: What You Think of Me Is None of My Business!

The Highest Outcome for Yourself & Another

tips for connecting to another’s higher self

The Highest Outcome for Yourself & Another ~ InnerVitalityA wonderful way to find clarity and healing in a relationship, including with a loved one who’s passed or someone you are no longer in touch with, is to connect with their higher self and begin a dialoging process. If you have an important decision to make or upcoming discussion in a relationship (whether it be with a friend, significant other, family member or in business), this process may also provide some of the insight and higher purpose knowledge that will help you in proceeding in a manner in the best interest of both of you.

Of course, permission must always be sought when connecting to another, and this can be done intuitively.

1. To begin, you may wish to set the mood for meditation, whatever it is you like to do…relaxing music, candle, soft lighting, pleasant scent.
2. Get comfortable and centre yourself. Connect with your breath and close your eyes if you like (or bring your gaze to a soft focus if you are reading).
3. Ask to set aside your ego, and state your intention to connect to your higher self. You may wish to invite in any angels or guides you connect with. Imagine yourself surrounded in white light.
4. See an image of the person you wish to connect with in your mind’s eye; see them surrounded with light. If you do not sense the other person, ask to be given a scent, sound, shape or colour symbolic of their higher self; invite them to come forward. Ask their permission to connect to their higher self. Trust what you sense.
5. If you hear, feel or sense a ‘no’ response, then allow them this right, as it may not be the best time. Try this process at another time if you wish. You can still surround this situation/relationship with an intention of healing (or the best possible outcome for both of you) ~ that in itself brings wonderful transformational energy.
6. If you feel there is a ‘yes’ answer, you may proceed forward.
7. Begin to speak with them. Tell them anything you wish to express. Any questions you have can be asked now. You can even sense a response or words. Find clarity on how they view the situation. Interestingly, the way the other’s higher self communicates still reflects some of their personality, and you may even sense a certain tone to their voice, specific words or energy or mannerisms that make sense for them.
8. Even if you feel you are making this process up, there is valuable information here. If you don’t feel you are hearing a specific answer, examine their energy ~ you may find the answer in how they present themselves. You may also ask that communication between you two happen in your dream state, or ask that guidance/answers be presented to you in the coming week. Trust that you will find clarity/healing and be open to however it comes.
9. Some questions you may wish to ask are: a) How do you view this situation/relationship? b) What is/was your intention? c) What learning is this relationship/situation providing for you? Ask your own higher self the purpose for you. d) What can their higher self tell you that will provide you with more understanding/healing? e) Ask, what do you need from me and tell them what you need from them. f) How can we heal this? How is best to move forward? What one action today will help us move forward?
10. If this is a person that hurt you, you may wish to get some feelings out: a) What do you most need to tell them? Say this now. You are safe here to do this now. b) What positive qualities have you gained from the situation…strength, compassion, courage, resolve? [You may wish to read our sister blog article on Soul Connections.]
11. When you are done dialoguing, thank their higher self for connecting with you. Thank any guides and angels that were present. Thank yourself for taking the time to learn, heal and grow.
12. Come back gently now, beginning to move your hands and feet. Open your eyes (or bring the room more into focus) when you are ready. To further ground, you may wish to put your right hand on the crown of your head and your left hand at the base of your spine.

We hope this process has brought you some insight and healing. Holding the intention of everyone’s highest good is a wonderful way to release restrictions and smooth the path ahead. Don’t be surprised if you notice a marked improvement in this relationship or your feelings towards them. It is not uncommon to hear from the other person after this process, even if you have not for a while (they will have felt your energetic connection at some level). Know that you can do this process again with anyone at anytime with their permission. Transformation, guidance and healing are always available so that we may truly move forward, embracing the present moment and all that life has to offer!

You are the Epicentre

This channeled article also appears on our sister blog site, SatyaSoul ~ your loving source for spirit messages and intuitive development tips!

You are the Epicentre @SatyaSoulBelieve us when we say your self-care and your physical body are to be your utmost priority in life. All else flows from this. Don’t you see? The other matters, your family and career ~ mean nothing without an optimal you at its centre. Many don’t believe this within completely yet. But we cannot stress this enough. Put yourself first. Trust your body. Listen when it says it needs to stretch, to move, and the foods that suit it and fuel it for your highest function and good.

how charged is your internal battery?

You are like the epicentre. And everything you create in your life, everything you seek, even your inner clarity ~ is more focused, abundant and dynamic with a whole you at the centre. Every situation you find yourself in, even your friends, family and other relationships around you…are part of the web that you spin from your inner resources. What kind of web are you creating? How charged is your internal battery? Recharge it, and your entire web and how you relate to it is affected. Stay charged, continuously maintain your vitality, and so much more than you currently realize is possible.

step into your power, embrace all that nourishes you…

Self care has been a roadblock for many throughout their life. Isn’t it time to make a plan…a commitment to yourself and finally follow through? You see many more joys and discoveries await!

But naturally, you must be ready and able to embrace these new opportunities. What doors will open when you truly take care of yourself and put yourself first? That is after all, your duty to yourself. Think of the power you have when you put yourself directly in the epicentre, the centre of the web, instead of haphazardly directing your life from the sidelines. Step into your power. It is time. Embrace all that nourishes you. Live life.
