I've heard Bashar say that sometimes we experience drastic "bad" things because we are getting them out of our system.
Well, did you go through this in your enlightenment paths?
The last thing, I just come from the ER, dropped a bottle of beer and it exploded and cut my face, not much, just enough to make a mess of blood everywhere. Had to pay a plastic surgeon to avoid having an ugly scar, so that's another issue..
And that was just the last, Thursday and Friday were full of surprises as well.
I was not completely honest at first. I was, and am, still confused and overwhelmed a bit. When I arrived at the hospital (passing 3 at least hospitals in my way, passing a city as well) I was surprised to find the receptionist was a girl I like to sexually fantasize about. I don't know her well, she doesn't know me well, all I knew about her is that she was the daughter of a lady that works in a restaurant 1 block away from the family business. She's pretty, is a nice girl, but overall is not someone (at least I think) that I would want to go out with, I only sexually fantasized with her. On many occasions.
The reason I was overwhelmed is because I was looking for meaning into this. I felt very calmed after I saw her, because I had just driven 40mi, and in a city of 1 million, I found her to be the receptionist.
Since this happened, little by little I've been feeling more anxious about my responsibility on creation. If I attracted myself to her for my focusing, what's next? And I know it's not good, judging myself and feeling the anxiety and resistance to the idea of responsibility. I need to let go, surrender, and focus more in what I do want.
New comments are welcome !
The idea of things getting worse before they get better is an often-observed one and does seem fundamental to a 3D (linear time) view of things.
SIDENOTE: If you choose to "step out" of 3D, you could possibly also step out of this cause-and-effect relationship though I don't have much experience with doing that
Physically, you can see this "purging of bad things" clearly happening, for example, in:
Abraham have referred to this as the phenomenon of "All Hell Breaking Loose" as you begin deliberately feeling better about your life.
...and probably many more questions/answers on IQ. Try this Google search for more.
I like to explain the "hell breaking loose" in terms of someone pulling through themselves more vibrational energy now than they could previously allow. So it's not that something has gone "wrong", it's just that you are moving to a new (vibrational) level and the discomfort comes about from that natural adjustment.
You could say that it's like moving to a new home. There's a period of discomfort until you have moved all your belongings into the new house (even if it is better than the old one) and have got used to the new location of it.
For more on these ideas, see:
So, in a sense, you could say your statement is accurate however I would say that just having the drastic things happen would not be enough to "get them out of your system", you would need to "integrate" the experiences after they happen.
For information on "integration", check out the idea of Bashar's test
"Integration" of an experience, in simple language, means that you are just going to find a way to feel better about what has just happened so that it decreases the likelihood of anything similar happening again.
Using Abraham-speak, it means that the next time you are "out of the Vortex", you are less likely to rendezvous with a similar-feeling experience again. (You can't rendezvous with them while in the Vortex but no-one in physical form can stay there forever).
For me, "integrating" comes down to use of Abraham's "Focus Wheels" method regarding anything "drastic" that has just appeared. My systematic (and slightly modified) usage of that approach is what I call Focus Blocks.
Hope there's something useful for you in that huge mass of links :)
Things like this used to happen to me quite regularly especially when I started using the Abraham processes. I found that after a day or two of successfully raising my vibration and feeling great, I would suddenly be hit with a "negative" circumstance or a severe mood swing. I also found that the more specific I got in feel-good focus the the more severe the mood-swing.
This became a regular occurrence. A few days of feeling great and then suddenly feeling terrible again either through emotion or circumstance. What was happening here? How could I be attracting this when I was feeling great? Abraham didn't mention this would happen in their book? After a healthy dose of ingesting answers by Stingray and some other spiritual teachers I started to work out why this was happening.
When you start to raise your vibration and get yourself in the Vortex regularly, those old emotions / beliefs no longer receive their regular dose of attention through your negative thought patterns. They then start to react to get your attention either by creating uncomfortable circumstances / emotions. As Stingray says this is actually a great opportunity to integrate these emotions / beliefs that don't serve you any longer. There are many ways to integrate. Here's one way that contains a few valuable insights.
There are many clearing techniques here that you can try. The "catch 22" conundrum is that it may be difficult to focus on them when you are really feeling bad. Any of these techniques, books, links, will probably help you, but FIRST you need to get to as clear a space in your mind as possible, and that ma be all you need to do.
Please understand that focussiong on the problems, the symptoms, the set of symptoms, will perpetuate the symptoms! So what can you do? I also believe that most over the counter medicines (read the bottles) say, "To alleviate the symptoms of ------" The medicines don't cure the problem, but they stop you from feeling them while the body cures itself.
So, let's alleviate your symptoms. Take it in why-not-give-this-a-try faith for a moment. Find something you like to do. Not related to the "problem". Do it. If you find your mind coming back to your problem, gently focus on your breathing, or something else. Play a video game.
Do SOMETHING to distract your conscious mind. The answer is within you. You are never given a problem w/o having the answer. You (your conscious mind) is making such noise that you can't allow the answer into your life. The answer will come. It may or may not be a conscious answer. Doesn't matter. Doesn't matter!
So take your conscious mind on holiday! Play, breath. Your subconscious mind, Big Self, Source, God, is trying to fix your problem and if you will stop trying to fix it, your conscious self, the answer will come into your life. You have my double-your-money-back-guarantee.
Another thing. STOP TALKING ABOUT YOUR PROBLEM! I won't say this again. @CalonLan and I will be watching! And my next remarks may not be so kind. (smile)
**Relax and let the answers come. You will know when the things you have been worrying about have no effect on you.
It IS just that simple.**
