As we learn more about the natural cycles of Life, we know that in order to be recreated into something new, the current form and its foundation must be deconstructed. The concept and eventual experience of Resurrection illustrates that fact, for the alchemy of forces to work its miracle as a byproduct of God’s natural laws, we must die (Ego Death) to be reborn. This is transpiring rapidly now for many people. This shift has been an emphasis for years now that the necessity to overcome the ego mental body Addictions would become dire, and indeed it has. The death of the ego is the phantom death we experience as we face the desperation of the inner or outer darkness, and as we face the darkness, one must remember this is not the “real” spiritual self. This may catapult us into the Dark Night of the Soul or spiritual crisis.
Ego Death is overcoming the resistance to surrender to the process of spiritual awakening or spiritual Ascension. If you fight the changes and transformation which require the death of the prior identity stages that have been outgrown, the new Expanding Consciousness and Christos self cannot be reborn. This manifests as emotional and mental stasis which makes us suffer, and stunts development and personal evolution of Consciousness. The enlightenment process is an infinite spiral of Ego Death and rebirth throughout time and space through remembering the Eternal nature of the self and connecting with the Lightbody.
True power is inherent the death of the former Ego/Personality self, thus the first stages of spiritual awakening and spiritual crisis correspond well to the Kübler-Ross stages of the grieving process:
- Denial: "This can't be happening!"
- Anger: "Why me, why do I have to do all the work?
- Bargaining: "Just let me keep my pointless job, my car and a beer or two."
- Depression: "It’s hopeless, why bother with anything?"
- Acceptance: "I know that I will be in a better place."
Dark Night of the Soul
During spiritual initiation or active kundalini Ascension Stages, there are four main types of the down-cycle of spiritual crisis which could variously be associated with what the ancients and mystics have called the Dark Night of the Soul. These phases of spiritual development are unavoidable, as the "living death" or Ego Death must occur for resurrection of the spiritual body and mind. All must enter the Dark Night of the Soul or spiritual crisis, perhaps many times during the cyclical process of evolution during the spiritual ascension process. The planet is undergoing a global level of the Dark Night of the Planetary Collective Soul during the Ascension Cycle.
Inner Armageddon Dismantling
In physical matter, and within our own bodies, during this time we may feel this stretching and splitting apart sensation which may feel very harsh to our emotional body and heart space. Because the nature of the ego mind is mostly connected to the false light architecture, what is occurring is similar to the disintegration of the inner ego structures and its Imposter Spirit from continuing to block the higher heart complex. This is activating many people into spiritual initiation to align into their highest expression resonant to that energetic state of heart based being. There is a pushing and pulling between the lower mind internal structures and the higher heart intelligence which may feel like an internal and external war over the body consciousness. The Bifurcation of Timelinesis changing the reality bubbles and as they are pushing and pulling apart space-time, where we all coexist, this may bring upon an Inner Armageddon sensation or relative Phantom Death experience. During this phantom death experience we will be presented with choices to move into higher integrity alignment and be reborn into a new spiritual energy. This is occurring at the microcosm and macrocosm levels of reality.
Accept As It Is Now
Our 3D Ego Self and its distorted belief system will not continue to be reinforced anymore in the external environment. For those on the Ascension pathway, plotting, planning and strategizing for control over your future prospects is over. Your life force is in the hands of your Higher Self and you are learning how to communicate in the new language without the ego interference. Wherever you find yourself right NOW, there is a reason for it. Dissatisfaction, unhappiness and frustration in your life circumstances can only be shifted in the perception in the Now moment. To overcome an unhappy ego you must surrender to and accept the circumstance As It Is Now. For many untrained people at this stage of evolutionary development, ego denial of the facts and blaming everything on the outside is still used as a coping mechanism. This promotes more ego resistance and more energetic backlash to feed the uncomfortable circumstances, prolonging the issues of the Dark Night of the Soul and Ego Death. We must stop the blame game, surrender and accept the responsibility for our life circumstances no matter where we find ourselves.
Observe, Discern, Accept
In the earlier stages this is the intention and goal of specific meditation to become aware of inner stillness without the mind interfering. Later it is a walking meditation in which every single thought, behaviour and activity is witnessed by the Observer Point in the day to day activity. As this skill is developed this becomes possible with little to no effort to remain in the Observer Point. It is at this point a massive leap in higher consciousness and awareness of sentient forms may be experienced.To allow the deeper comprehension of the self to discern the functions of mind one will need to discern the functioning of each part of the mind and accept its nature without judgment of its content. This means to train the mind one must learn to observe, discern the part of the mind and accept its nature. Through observation, discernment and acceptance one can train the mind to be disciplined back to neutral, which allows access to still point of higher Consciousness. An everyday quick tool to train the mind:• Observe• Discern• Accept• Neutral
