In this series of articles, I will share my observations regarding the most common mind-patterns, e.g., anger, frustration, discomfort, etc. These observations are experiential and are based on myself and the people I know. In Part 2, we will look at the animal-mind and its desire to be in control of our environment. We will analyze the fear of the unknown, adjustment and a constant search for comfort outside of self.
Throughout the last couple of years, I’ve noticed that my personality has ‘stretched’. I was pushed to a foreign country with ‘alien’ culture and language, new home and neighborhood, family-in-law and acquaintances. I was forced to step out of my metaphysical closet. It was necessary so that I could learn to deal with the challenges of physical reality better. It was a positive change, yet it came with a high cost of having to transform my entire being from the inside.
Changes in my physical environment forced me to go deeper within. I started recognizing my mental blocks – old belief systems and negative self-talk. Since childhood, I was imprinted with the idea that all the comfort I have comes at a high cost (think labor, time, money, resources, etc.). Guilt for what I had and for wishing to have even more became inherent. I was always appreciative of my comfort, yet I was missing the ‘comfort’ of my old home, the environment that I could control.
Last year, I was taking on new challenging career functions, new educational paths and hobbies, worked on elevating interpersonal relationships with my partner, my family, and friends to a more mature stage. It was all happening simultaneously and very overwhelming. I struggled adjsuting to the new and soon realised that I had to work on the animal mind.
My first year in a new country has almost thrust me into operating from the reptilian brain and in the survival mode. I had to prove to myself that I was worth all the positive change, but I had to learn to accept the totality of everything I have within me including both positive and negative. I have physically removed myself from the comfort that I was used to into the discomfort and insecurity of the new and unknown. Why did I have to be afraid? Why all these worries and struggles? The answer is simple: I was not ‘at home’ with myself.
The Challenge Of Deprogramming
When you deprogram intensely, you may feel like losing the ground beneath your feet. No surprise, you are shaking your foundational mind-patterns and beliefs. That often causes abrupt changes in your physical environment that catches up with the corrected mind-pattern. It is a kind of psychic surgery that you perform on yourself, and it takes time to heal before you’ve completely recovered. This is the time when you need your Oversoul communication most, and if you are receptive enough you will notice how caring its frequency is and how it is always willing to support you and help you out in the hardest times.
Pulling The Mask
I’m fortunate to have a partner who is caring and supportive. He has been comforting me through all these months of adjustment. That made me feel better and helped for a while, yet I knew that I had to resolve the conflict within myself and stop being a victim of my own belief system (think matrix).
The comforting attributes of this physical reality can be your favorite foods, alcohol, nicotine, drugs, escaping to the world of virtual reality and entertainment. It can also be a desire to surround yourself with people who will distract you from dealing with the issue. Like most of the prescribed medication, all of the above are not healing the emotional ‘wound’. They just help to mask the symptoms for a while. The issue comes back and hits harder each time when it is not addressed correctly.
Finding Comfort Within
We need the comfort of our home to feel grounded and safe, the support of our family and significant other to know that we are loved. We need the comfort of the ‘familiar’ to cope with the change.
Physical reality is a reflection of the state of your mind. Let it teach you and guide you, but don’t allow it to deceive you. Switch your inner vision and awareness on and see what’s in there that needs to be fixed. Identify the problem so that the solution can present itself. Nobody and nothing is infallible; accept it, resolve it and move on. Your oversoul has so many exciting things in store for you to accomplish in this lifetime.
Ask yourself the following questions: what makes you look for comfort outside of Self? What helps you to pull through the discomfort of the physical reality? Don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comments.
