When we do something we know is wrong on the conscious level … How may we move toward living what we believe is right?

 The conscience is the compass of the heart … always turned to truth  {words that came to me in a meditative state over a year ago} 

As this blog is about vibrational elevation … coming up out of, fear or de-stressing from “wear and tear on the soul,” it is URGENT – IMPORTANT – VITAL to write this follow-up post to my observation, noted on Tuesday, that:

If we do something we believe is wrong on a conscious level, it is because:

(1) We have a strong unconscious belief that overrides our

values — our conscience … 

or … because:

(2) We are being “worked on” by a conscienceless sociopath who we are connected to who is running a pity play, a bid for sympathy, on us to get us to do his bidding …

 Ok, let’s dig in. I am interested your experiences and your  feeedback on this … In today’s post, I am adressing #(2) first:

 The manifestation of being “worked on” by a conscienceless sociopath who we are connected to who is running a pity play, a bid for sympathy, on us to get us to do his bidding … 

You are an energy being … a being of light, love and intelligence … and you have a right to protect yourself from sociopathic or “vampire” personalities who would suck the life force or spiritual energy out of those of you who have consciences and are NOT “Ice People”

The Sociopath Within by Martha Stout, Ph.D.

While it may be your “karma” to meet up with certain people in this lifetime, it is best to move toward {those who have spiritual} beauty within and away from toxic people … In fact, there are times when it is vital to your survival, physically as well as spiritually … whether you plan on merely living in this material world or “living in and spiritually transcending” the world … Toward this end, I offer this, from a post from independent Scientologist Marty Rathbun’s Moving On Up A Little Higher http://markrathbun.wordpress.com/recommended-reading/

“Stout is a clinical psychologist who specialized for twenty-five years in helping the victims of sociopaths.   The first half of her book shares her real life observations about sociopaths and the effects they have upon social personalities.  Her observations are remarkably parallel to {L. Ron} Hubbard’s description of the Suppressive Person.   Note, modern accepted characteristics of the sociopath very closely align with Hubbard’s descriptions of the emotional tone level of Covert Hostility and of the Suppressive Person.  This is so much the case that I {Note from Theta Networker: This is Marty speaking, and I agree. } have taken to using the terms ‘suppressive person’ and ‘sociopath’ interchangeably.

“But, Stout’s first and foremost marker for the sociopath is more complementary of Hubbard’s work than it is duplicative.  Per Stout, the sociopath first and foremost lacks conscience {Italics mine}.  It is a very useful and workable observation she shares.

“Stout’s second chapter, Ice People: The Sociopaths, provides an actual case history …

“Later in the book Stout gives another common denominator of sociopaths that again insightfully adds to one’s arsenal against being ruined by one, the pity play:

“The most reliable sign, the most universal behavior of unscrupulous people is not directed, as one might imagine, at our fearfulness. It is, perversely, an appeal to our sympathy.

“Stout describes how good, intelligent people wind up doing the bidding of a sociopath.

“Excerpt:

Why are conscience-bound human beings so blind? And why are they so hesitant to defend themselves, and the ideals and people they care about, from the minority of human beings who possess no conscience at all?  A large part of the answer has to do with the emotion and thought processes that occur in us when we are confronted with sociopathy.  We are afraid, and our sense of reality suffers.  We think we are imagining things, or exaggerating, or that we ourselves are somehow responsible for the sociopath’s behavior.”

Thanks, Marty, for calling attention to this.

Now let’s address the #(1) reason — in the absence of being under the suppression of a sociopath or suppressive person — that we may do something we believe is wrong on a conscious level:

The manifestation of a strong unconscious — or reactive —  belief that overrides our values

I speak to you, today, in the spirit of — and standing on the shoulders of — intuitive energy healer Caroline Myss’ book Why People Don’t Heal And How They Can. 

  As Natural Health Magazine said of her book:

“Myss points out that so much time and energy have been spent recognizing and identifying and even ‘honoring’ people’s wounds, that we are in danger of forgetting that the whole point is to get past these wounds to get healthy.”

 From reading Part One of that book = Why People Don’t Heal, I came away with some understandings that I want to share with you:  

 Looking back … I feel even a stronger agreement with Caroline’s understanding that “Healing (techniques) require that your will be aligned with your heart … Without this … Visualization and other disciplines … carry only the power of … daydreams …” And, too, when she speaks in terms of the Buddhist concepts of right thought leading to right speech leading to right action, that resonates as well … Yes, we “need to learn to direct our life force consciously into the kinds of thoughts that will return positive energy to us.”        

That said,  would like to end this post, by recalling the wisdom of some of those who I admire and cited in “About This Blog.”  You may choose your own “spiritual pathwork” or practice/practices or modality/modalities  .. be it The Healing Codes, Dianetics, Christianity {Christ-ianity, in the spirit of Jesus}, Sound Healing  or … 

 I am blessed to have heard the Healing With the Masters broadcast which featured Deborah King http://www.deborahkingcenter.com/blog/, http://www.deborahkingcenter.com/chakra-chart/, author of Truth Heals: What You Hide Can Hurt You. I was reminded that one doesn’t just “walk away” from toxic or negative energy or from blocked or stagnant energy … release past traumas … and instantly connect with guides in the spiritual realms … align with the universal energy field or Infinite Spirit. There is what I like to call “spiritual pathwork” to, for example, remove negative energy … release or strengthen positive energy where it’s lacking … restore balance from within …

Deborah shared the five practices that, from her very personal healing and experience, allow one to become a clear channel for healing: Journaling, Meditation, Prayer, Forgiveness, Being {a vessel} of Service. I note that of course there is Study … Re-viewing … Learning more …                                 

 May I remind you, again, that, as Doreen Virtue says in Chakra Clearing – Awakening Your Spiritual Power To Know And Heal, you are an energetic being … a being of light, love and intelligence …

When we/lightworkers embark on {spiritually/energetically} healing ourselves and opening our heart chakras “fully to Divine love” (so that we may heal others) … other people, says Doreen, “notice the glow that naturally emanates from deep within us. Even those with no knowledge of spirituality are drawn to our love and light. They notice something different about our peaceful nature, and the glow of Divine love triggers a deep forgotten memory of God.”

I, at this point in my spiritual evolution, am more comfortable looking at it closer to the way I believe Gregg Braden does, in Walking Between The Worlds - The Science Of Compassion, that although we sense our truest nature/essential self from within, there has been a separation from our creator/the creator of the clay vessel known to one and all as “our body,” yet “we look to our world of external technology {as opposed to any technology of the spirit} to prove and validate our feelings.” Greeg observes that, whereas the western world’s translation of The Lord’s Prayer begins with “Our father who art in heaven,” whereas the Aramaic translation of that Biblical verse begins with “Our father who is everywhere,” which is NOT a viewpoint of such separation from the creator :-)

 Gregg has also observed and noted that people sometimes — in an instant — may come across a moment when their eyes meet a stranger, or perhaps someone they know at work, and “clickthere is a feeling,” which at least one of the parties may quickly dismiss … Gregg, in speaking of this, in his chapter entitled Journey Of Initiation,  is speaking of people seeking within others, the pieces of themselves they had long ago lost or had taken away or had given away throughout their lives. And so, sez me: the “glow that naturally emanates from deep within us,” which Doreen Virtue speaks of as manifesting/being felt so that “even those with no knowledge of spirituality are drawn to our love and light” may be felt emanating even from those of us who have not necessarily “opened our heart chakras to divine love,” but , as well, from those of us who are indeed ‘different’ by our peaceful nature: we choose peace over non-peace, as Gregg would put it, in a world of polarity and separation. and we choose to conduct our lives, believing that peace is a higher choice. {I note, as Gregg does, that: “compassion is not an invitation to inaction.” Action merely does not have to include hatred …}
