THE ARGUING STOPS HERE.
Understanding that our field contains everything we consume, everything we interact with, and everything in the collective, is paramount.
We consume media unconsciously all of the time. These perspectives enter our field and our mental body transcribes each message and stores it. This is often why you hear different voices, arguments, in your mind. You have so many opinions and perspectives, many of which are not authentically yours, because they were fed to you.
It behooves us to learn to separate the emotional body's response to data and the mental body's capacity to store that data. We often believe that our feelings are directly related to the content in our minds. This is not the case. Content is impersonal. Data has no emotional charge to it. The personalization of it is due to an emotional frequency, separate from the thought, belief, or image xeroxed and reproduced by the mind. This frequency is an energy that needs moving that is divinely timed to the thought but not the thought itself. The thought is a portal, a bridge to the feeling. This is only the case because we are so often in our minds that we do not lead with emotion. The opposite, an emotion that leads to a thought, can also occur. When we begin to see the bodies as connected, superimposed, yet separate, we can reach energetic neutrality with much greater ease.
Let us learn to stop arguing, then. Let us allow belief to be about trust, an emotional experience, instead of being about being "right." When we lean into trust, we stop needing to be right. We realize that data is a matter of perspective, and that there is no need to argue, because trust comes from within. There's no need to justify anything, because trust is personal. When we release the habit of arguing, we begin, instead, to listen. We get quiet. We listen for our trust, the feeling from within, to guide us. No longer are we distracted by the data floating about in our minds, the data we hear pouring out of other people's mouths. We listen with our insides, with our Inner Knowing. From this place we can establish ourselves and truly know where we stand; from this place we do not need anyone else to confirm our sense of trust because our Self is nourished. People, media, need not pour into us because our cup is full to the brim with Self-love and Self-certainty.
Try closing your eyes while you watch television. Tap into your body and see where your conscious awareness travels in your body. How does it feel there? Is it a void that is seeking fulfillment through external sources, or is it a space, warm and safe, that feels full and trusting? Ask that place what it's feeling. Do you see a color? Do you hear a voice? Do you feel burning or tingling? Listen to it. Do this for as long as necessary to gain clarity around your energetic needs. Once you know what that place needs, you can ask it how it would like to receive fulfillment, how you can build trust there. Follow the guidance you receive. This guidance is your unique medicine.
This is how we can track our behavior to see why we seek the external, why we are pulled to certain data sources and forms of media. Do not hurry this process. Trust is delicious and deserves ceremony. Keep leaning into the place, listening and feeling. If you hear nothing, trust that you will and try again later, perhaps after a walk, a bath or shower, or some time painting or musicking. Developing a relationship with your energy body is a journey. Honor it by allowing it to unfold at its own pace.
