Healing and Transformation

David Starlyte Original Painting, 2017 As a child, a member of my family would frequently burst into rage. He had bouts of anger so destructive and extreme, he became like a raging inferno.

I learnt early on that you cannot reason with emotion.

You cannot try to reason with senseless outbursts, or violence. You cannot try to think your way out of insanity. If someone is irrational, let them be. Find a way to walk away, hide away, or stay far away.

In my experience, it wasn’t always easy to completely avoid him, but when the blaze was bursting, I could usually find a safe place hidden away from view. I developed this strategy at an early age, and in some respects and at certain times, that strategy is still in use.

There is a certain distance and sometimes disengagement with the world that keeps me safe. It’s helpful for all people on the planet right now, particularly in some areas, to shield ourselves from potential dangers. Keeping the framework and understanding that outside of the illusion that surrounds us, we can imagine, find and create our own world—so long as we don’t become numb (as that would be a pity) to our feelings.

I recently had an engagement with a woman on Facebook that interested me from an emotional perspective. I could see that her feelings were hurt, as she was desperately clinging to her ego identity, holding on so strongly to her feelings. Her pain-body was activated, and most of her consciousness was swallowed up by that pain. Being a person with strong feelings, she couldn’t sit outside those emotions—she was unable to engage with other perspectives.

When emotions hit hard, they are the most powerful forces known to human experience.

It is near-impossible to engage with emotions by rationale. Reasoning with the unreasonable is simply impractical. Throwing words at a tsunami won’t get you far.

What she was originally upset about doesn’t really matter. She felt rejected, and in that cage of suffering, her best method of defending herself was to turn it around on me and play the blame game.

When meeting another in relationship, there is a moment when their trauma or drama is engaged. Some will “fight” or go into “flight” mode, others will simply freeze. Deep within the core of our being are emotional responses developed from generations of evolution. If left unconscious, these emotions stay dormant outside our awareness, beyond our ability to witness them. Once they are triggered, it is already too late to reconfigure them.

Within a relational setting, how does one approach the emotional world—do we walk away or engage with it?

When your desires aren’t met, it can easily lead to frustration, blame and anger. The feeling of being in control—or its counterpart, being out of control—feeds the insanity that tells us we need to constantly be in control. Hence the frequent manipulation that happens in exchanging energy with people.

The cycle of blame starts with a feeling: I am feeling X.

On some level, this awareness shifts into a thought: Something or somebody has caused me to feel X. Why are my needs not being met? It must be someone else’s fault.

It is self-indulgent to believe that because we are feeling pain, it is somebody else’s fault.

Blame arises and leads to anger, but also the self-righteous notion that there is justification in blaming another person for our feelings. Self-responsibility requires a person to see absolutely that they are responsible for their own feelings.

In Falling into Grace, Adyashanti writes, “If you listen to people interact, at the very instant they get sucked into a vortex, you’ll hear them start to blame, condemn, try to control each other.”

This wheel of suffering, or samsara as the Buddha called it, is a vortex of suffering that is so compulsive and feels so real, we plant ourselves deep into its roots and get sucked into the false reality it reveals.

The only way to shift out of this egoic dreamstate is to become aware of it. When we are aware of its power, it no longer has complete control over us, just like an addict, once aware of his addiction, at least begins to have some ability to listen to another channel, or de-program the hypnosis of addiction.

The low vibration of fear and anger holds us hostage, keeps us stuck in a holding pattern of suffering with no hope of release or resolution. The more we look to someone else to satisfy our ego needs, the less power we have, and the more desperate we become. It is a pathway to emptiness and increasing unhappiness. It can never be truly fulfilled by another person, as the lack is within, inside, separate from externalities. We can never escape ourselves.

Coming back to my personal experience: how does one relate to emotions—especially when the pain-body has been triggered and we’ve entered into a field of irrationality we can’t control?

First, trying to “control” it only makes it worse, pouring fuel on the fire. So what did I do? I initially attempted to engage with the emotion, got nowhere and then retreated. When I felt the person’s behaviour had become toxic, I completely withdrew.

My concern with this woman was that her pain-body was all too easily activated, and being so easily triggered, it would make relating to her challenging. If one is too reactive, it usually falls quickly into toxicity, or in this case just too difficult to deal with. Since she has a strong sense of self-importance, when her feelings are hurt it’s a big deal in her heart and mind. She hasn’t yet developed the ability to look at people’s intentions, and develop equanimity rather than reactivity. Or to take responsibility for how she is feeling, and not project them outwards on others and blame them for her feelings. I did not see any recognition or ability on her part to have a conscience awareness of her behaviour.

I felt tremendous love for this person, even though I stepped away. I just didn’t know another way. The wounded child in her just wants to be accepted, loved and embraced. I can transmute her pain only so much by forgiveness.

The reason I share this story is not to be judgmental of her feelings. They are okay. It is the behaviour that comes with those feelings that are difficult for me to engage with. In addition, this is about my ability to discern what I want to manifest in my life, create boundaries around what is within the realm of acceptable behaviour or not, and keep my bubble of reality sacred and peaceful.

As a teacher, perhaps I failed her, or perhaps some day she will learn something from my “lesson.”

She genuinely believed that I was the cause of her suffering. How could I awaken her from believing that I was the cause of her feelings, and the thoughts she created and imagined around those feelings were not real?

Speaking of his childhood insights (epiphany!), Adyshanti also writes:

“What I realized was that adults spent a lot of time thinking, and and more important than that—and more odd, it seemed to me—they actually believed what they were thinking. They believed the thoughts in their head.”

What gives rise to suffering is a sense of self and a story created by the mind, called ego. This is the ego identity we created as infants to keep us safe. As we develop into adults, it starts to limit our growth, keeping us separate and disconnecting us from our whole connection to life. A dog can feel pain and disquiet, yet it does not hold onto its feelings perpetually—it does not reside in alienation. Animals experience life as vast happenings that they are intrinsically a part of.

“When we see ourselves as essentially separate, then we start to think that I have to take care of ‘me,’ that my needs and my wants are of utmost importance, and so we have to make sure that we get what we want, irrespective of what someone else may want or need.” ~ Adyashanti

It’s not that thoughts and feelings are meaningless, it’s just that we are the meaning-creators. We are the ones filling the void with a life that expresses who we are. If we are unable to separate from our creations and be aware of the expansive consciousness beyond that, we may become lost in our creations, lost in our feelings, and lost in our thoughts.

The way out of the vortex of suffering is to develop a dialogue with that part of you that is suffering.

Speak to the rage, speak to the suffering.

Start a conversation—it may surprise you how the relationship will develop.

It has been interesting to follow the aftermath of the US election.

While times of change and upheaval may seem negative, there are far more potential positives to initiate, depending on one’s perception.

It has been surprising how pessimistic some have felt about Donald Trump’s win. Alarmists have even claimed this signals the end of the world, or nearly. Also surprising is how many people are still being taken in by the illusion of the media, the facade of politics and the democratic process in general, especially in two-party systems, where the actual point of decision is so narrow.

World politics is not what is seems. There is a real shift happening, starting with the upheaval that has been going on, in truth, for many decades. All of nature occurs in patterns and we are in the middle of a spiritual flowering—an awakening of consciousness.

The previous regime in America promised change—every second word that came out of Obama’s mouth was change! However, little substantial change was delivered, especially not to working-class people. The power elite continued; demonisation and racism continued even though the President is part African-American himself.

Is it any surprise that a system so invested in serving the interests of the establishment, is going to put helping the average person low on its priorities? What was typically dished up were promises and lies. This should have alerted people to the dishonesty of politicians and the problems inherent within the system. If there was any trust left, then I would have thought that would have been blasted out of the sky with the two most unpopular candidates in history vying for power (Clinton and Trump).

Yet this disenchantment with the status quo has led to a tearaway candidate.

The mood on the streets is one that is demanding real change. Yet, the change sought on the external level will not come until people awaken to their true power within, cease looking outside themselves, and disconnect from the deception that there is someone more powerful who will help them. There is a biblical guideline to remember: “God helps those who help themselves!” Believing in the delusion of power—and the resulting powerlessness of people to stand up for what they believe in—is not the practice of spiritual revolutionaries who are autonomous.

Are we forging real change? And if so, what does it mean?

The new awakening means learning how to do useful things, from planting organic seeds and growing food, to building homes, cooking healthy foods, and living in harmonious communities. The era of Big Government reign followed by the corporatocracy (takeover by insurgent corporations that have become ubiquitous) has not served humanity’s health, happiness and the state of our planet, Gaia.

Running the planet for profit and exploiting every last resource, as well as the concept of economic “growth” needs to be rapidly demolished. In this shift may come chaos. Yet after the flood, Noah re-seeded the Earth and starting all over again meant the weeds were removed. The deluge was really a deliverance from evil. So in the same way, if you see chaos around you, don’t be taken in by that illusion. It is just a stage toward Ascension.

Self-autonomy means not blowing with the winds of political change. It is standing alone, aware, still, and grounded. It is standing together with love and compassion, bringing the dream concept of a soul tribe together. Big governments are on their way out. People power and a shift into balance, where feminine energy is no longer feared and suppressed, is returning.

Other key concepts include respecting women. Not in the way that would be condescending or
patronising, but in a genuine and authentic recognition of sacredness. Our true birth mother is Mother EarthGaia, and she has not been honoured, and protected . Without reverence for the sacred feminine, we are killing the mouth that feeds us. (Read more about the feminine matrix of creation.)

In the criminal domination, suppression and oppression of women, still practised by many of the world’s oldest religions and ethnic groups, we lose a sacred part of ourselves, a sacred part of our world, its very conscience.

The disturbing continuance of genital mutilation in Africa and the Middle East demonstrates the gulf between progressive human values of compassion, love and understanding, versus the “old world” fear, control and violent abuse of power. It is changing.

It is not just this suffering I wish to speak to. It is the chasm in consciousness that occurs throughout humanity. In Western countries, this is now done through digital means—electromagnetic radiation from electronics and news media keeping people controlled and suppressing their humanity. The more wifi there is, the less people can function, the less awake they can be. It also creates the kind of chaotic frequency that makes infertility rife.

To take back our consciousness is to disconnect from wifi and find safe zones in nature to inhabit, far from power signals. Empowering the health of our bodies means building a strong immune system to withstand EMF (electronic magnetic frequency) signals, and the abundant air pollution caused from contrails, amongst other things.

Please don’t get sucked in by the Trump hype—fear or hope. All happens for a reason, patterns in time, and time is the greatest illusion of them all.

The liberal-controlled media will have you believe that Trump is bad, but the people who own the media sit in their high offices in Wall Street, pushing the buttons. The system is fake and corrupt to its core. The American economy is built on debt and backed by fresh air, which isn’t even so fresh any more. How can that be sustainable? Debt is meaningless if money has no intrinsic value. Resources have value, and we are destroying them fast. Fresh air has value and we are taking that too.

All this is changing – it has to.

People have value, but in our world, they are only valued if they are born into elite families and to a lesser extent, into elite societies and the so-called “developed world.” A child born in the “developing world” is deemed expendable in our system and “worth less” than its Western counterparts.. So much so that millions of children die in Africa whilst the media obsesses about Donald Trump had for breakfast. What kind of reality is that? Refugees are human beings too – not numbers on a screen. I haven’t come across anyone that was aware that the most asylum seekers in the world are not living in Europe, but in South Africa. The mainstream media report that Africa is a small footprint on the world map.

This is a time of disclosure, and there will be traumatic events, because the debt of human suffering is mounting and needs to be acknowledged. When all information is freely available, then we can make decisions as a free society. Secrecy foments deception. I advocate total disclosure. That is what a free and “democratic” society would look like.

On a personal level, it’s the same as when I speak of being “naked” – not only in the physical – but on the soul level.

A truly democratic system would be easy to construct using the digital technology that is so rife. Each issue could be voted on, with very simple technology. The need for “elected” career politicians is becoming less plausible.

The way we look at something changes its intrinsic nature. As the shop windows shatter, a new dawn is breaking. The dying constellations around us are a call to cry over the suffering of our people and planet, and embrace a new age of compassion. Then we see that all is a miracle, just different steps in the evolution of miracles. All is reflecting life – and the evolution of humanity and Mother Earth. Accept change, and you will be free.

monopoly moneyIn a climate of pessimism, spiritual mercenaries of the new age appeal to the hopes and dreams of the despairing. How do we judge capitalism in a spiritual context and the materialism often seen amongst a new breed of people wanting to “manifest” fast cars and luxury travel?

What kind of thinking is perpetuating the promotion of material that is at best misleading and egotistical, at worst fraudulent? How do we navigate through the “spiritual” world and make assessments on whether what is being offered has value for us or is “pseudo-spiritual?”

Firstly, many people are not fully in understanding of the concept “judgment” and hence use the word incorrectly. “Judgment” is the ability to make considered decisions or come to sensible conclusions. It is entering into a healthy evaluation of what is true and right—deciphering, not condemnation. If we were not able to judge what was up or down, left or right, or follow health and safety protocols to protect ourselves, we would not be able to survive in the world. From an early age, we learn how to “judge” what is safe and unsafe, right or wrong.

The ability to “discern” is extremely important—from what to buy, who to listen to, how to get from A to B, which life decisions to make and so on; passing judgment is how we navigate through life. If one doesn’t know what judgment is and believes what some “new age” person told one (that is, not to “judge”), it makes decision making murky.

When it comes to “discerning” what is authentic healing and who has integrity as a healer, we need to apply the same principles as we would making any other decision. Blind faith (or desperation) is not a great arbiter. There are just as many charlatans in the spiritual world (perhaps more) as in any sphere of commerce. Spiritual deception feeds on people’s fear and gullibility. There are those who walk in the same shadow as the darkness. What if wearing the mask of healing gave access to walk within the illusion of goodness? Do not fear the illusion—his intentions are clear. Fear more the hunter in wolf’s clothing than the wolf.

There are just as many charlatans in the spiritual world (perhaps more) as in any sphere of commerce.

Why is there so much greed, jealousy and dishonesty amongst so-called healers and spiritual folk? This is a symptom of our collective dysfunction. The systems created by self serving technocrats are inherently individualistic and materialistic. Our economic model perpetuates selfishness and feeds on falsehood. Pursuing individual freedoms whilst practising aggressive consumerism is the norm.

Society itself is flawed on a cultural level—how we see ourselves—and the institutions set up to manage and protect us. In an era of narcissism, everyone is tarnished by competition, need and greed. Financial independence is the big dream achieved by just a few.

Critic of corporate globalisation, David Korten writes, “Life, not money, is the true measure of value; money’s only legitimate use is in life’s service. An obsession with making money is a sign of psychological and social dysfunction.”

The spiritual ego says that my teaching will shift your consciousness and I deserve as much money as Donald Trump because I am selling “goodness.” Here’s a reality check for those who consider themselves more “conscious” or “awakened”: We’re all spiritual beings in terms of having a soul or at least a component of a soul. How we see ourselves is unique as reflected in the trajectory of the soul’s journey. Who is to say that a spiritual healer is “better” than an economic leader? Different pathways do not define our worth or worthiness. Nor do they require the labels we give them.

Many people in the past have experienced ills and evils in the name of money, and the overall energy of money on the planet is quite weak. It is not a neutral energy (as some claim) simply because many people are dying for it, hoarding it, stealing it and perverting it. Collectively, our consciousness creates our physical existence and is creating how we think and feel and use the currency of “money.”

Our current environment is shifting and changing as people become aware of the mind and its potential. The energy forms are dense here, although the frequencies are dynamic. Aspects of ourselves are dying as we let go of the old definitions.

Consciousness and thoughts are the vital cogs of creation. With awareness comes choice. Since consciousness creates matter, what is our consciousness around money? How would a spiritually advanced civilisation behave? What would their understandings and beliefs be about money?

Since consciousness creates matter, what is our consciousness around money?

In Buddhism, “metta” (loving-kindness) and “dana” (giving freely from the heart) are practised as a culture. The problem with the Eastern approach alone was that spiritual development was advanced, whilst economic development lagged behind the West and they ended up with a lot of poor people. It’s all very well being spiritual, but what happens when people are going hungry en masse?

The Western approach has lead to people being wealthy yet miserable, rich yet feeling empty inside. Significant proportions of the population are on antidepressants. Overall, people have catered for their material needs whilst ignoring their spiritual needs. A value system built on commerce has left a spiritual void.

Finding a Balance

A true balance is optimal—between materialism and development and spiritual values involving “doing” and “being”—technological advancement combined with love and compassion. It is not an ideal to escape the responsibility of involvement with others. A healthy community is what creates happiness, not isolation and separation. This is the domain of advanced cultures and civilisations, the way of the future.

Most of our current world can be mechanised, which means we don’t need human beings to produce goods and food. We just need a few to operate machines and robots. Thus, the theme of the economy has fundamentally changed. The Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions changed the landscape—now the computer/robot revolution means the old jobs have mostly fallen away.

The changing nature of the economy has seen the elite 1% of the populace take possession of over 90% (I’ve even read claims of 99%) of the wealth. The rich (corporations), in bed with political powerbrokers, are doing massive reclamation projects to destroy all of nature and develop every inch for their greedy, insatiable need for expansion and economic growth at the expense of upholding our responsibility to be custodians of nature. Our natural resources are being destroyed for the temporary energy needs of a privileged few.

Questions:

Is the energy of money neutral?

How can money be neutral if people are starving to death for the lack of it?

Historically, many of us have had previous lives of pure sacrifice or living in service and giving up all material want or gain. Because the overall landscape in which we operate is of low frequency and money itself has been tainted, we have a tricky game to play. Money in itself has a neutral charge—and has the possibility to flow effortlessly when we are of a sharing and abundant psychology. There is healing required to shift money into something shared—to birth a financial system that emanates from the frequency of love, and to let go of outdated notions like economic “growth.” The playing field is one of limited resources that need to be managed intelligently and honorably. From a spiritual perspective, attachment and hoarding are not warranted.

It is more complex than simply to say that money is involved with a lot of darkness, from child trafficking to sex slavery, cocaine and heroin… The abuses are not motivated just by money, yet it does affect the whole energy of the system. On the other side, there is wonderful goodness that is being chartered via charities and individuals bringing light into the world. It’s important to acknowledge all aspects.

While an evolved system would have no need for money, we may need to just deal with what we have for now. Uprooting the whole system is the best way forward as a new infrastructure can be built on a solid foundation, but we’re not yet at the stage where it would be politically and socially viable. Utopian ideals have their place, but it may not be our current life path to make that into reality just yet. If we are open to discover, there are many people designing ways to operate outside the current economic “capitalism” model.

If we were to develop an evolved monetary system, how would it work? How would money be shared so it was able to move freely, abundantly and fairly amongst all people? The only system I can imagine is one where all of humanity shares one currency, and resources are shared. Each community is given access to a small and equal amount as a base. Tax is unnecessary and cumbersome, as is inflation.

The current system doesn’t work as it focuses on individual freedoms and excessive selfishness rather than collective advancement and resource sharing.

It moves the wealth into the hands of a few, instead of sharing the wealth that is all of humanity’s birthright.

Pioneers of the spirit are leading a new wave of communities and tribes being set up all over the world. Here is an invitation to co-create new ways of collaborating, creating and living together based on human dignity, sharing, respect and common goals.

What would it feel like to honour and send love to each other, to feel part of a community, instead of like individuals competing against each other?


Our true nature is loving, co-operative, creative and sharing. It’s not in claiming to be able to save people. Nor in the selling of impossible cures sent remotely for thousands of dollars. Our Mother Earth freely gives food, water and sunshine. Universal energy (qi, prana, Reiki) is available free as our inheritance as children of the sun. All healing is, in fact, self healing.

The new wave of love connecting humanity to our hearts is all about truly encapsulating the Sanskrit greeting, “Namaste”:

I honour the place within you wherein the entire universe dwells. I stand together with you in this sacred space of wisdom, integrity and peace. In this way your endless love breathes together with mine, and so we are One.
