In energy work, resistance adds tension, when we get enough tension, it creates a vibration of conflict. Sooner or later we notice and recognize that our story doesn't align with our belief.
When we try to push away our suffering with anger, outrage, or fear, the powerful effects of our thoughts and feelings perpetuate that suffering. Fear and hatred are our worst enemies. Because we tend to push away, repress, or avoid these feelings, they create unexpected results... energetically fear and hatred create and maintain the dynamic of victim/ aggressor.
There is understandable resistance in this statement "never again" that symbolizes resistance and survival. I see that it keeps the energy of the unwanted experience alive as well. To recall our suffering or the suffering of our ancestors, does not prevent future suffering or the suffering of others, unless we ourselves take action. Holding two conflicting beliefs attracts more of that same conflict. That terrible thing has happened to me vs I want to be loved and respected. Sometimes they are simply outdated, maybe belonged to our parents or culture, or we feel we have moved on but still hold resentment, anger or energy of that past experience. Coming to terms with those feelings and beliefs we hold that we don't like, can be as easy as accepting our own part in the experience.
When we think of "Never Again", or gun violence, or "me too" what is the feeling and experience created when you make the statement and hold the energy of it? What feeling/frequency do you vibrate or resonate within when making a statement of NO? THAT feeling is what you are asking for energetically. If you feel love and positive warmth of remembrance for your experience- YES. Is anger, frustration, victimization, hate, and/or anguish the stronger feeling? Painful feelings can create great resistance, and we often hold feelings on both sides of the issue. This dual push pull experience creates inner and outer conflict between what you want and what you don't want. When you hold both energies, the universe can't bring one without bringing the other. We can be so strong in our beliefs about what we don't want, that it becomes the more powerful belief and the universe gravitates to what we give the most energy. That power is the magnetic pull that brings us more energy of the same vibration.
What is it that we experience when we use this statement- never again, or no on any event or experience? Women have said NO and we still hold that energy of being victimized, objectified, less powerful. The danger is when we hold both yes and no we get stuck in the dynamic of holding on to the resistance of what we don't want, and the truth of what we do want.
We don't want to be powerless! We don't want to be victims. We don't want to be a NO! YES is a feeling of empowerment where we create our lives, live as we wish, in a happy supportive place with our loved ones. In the extreme it could look like having power over others, which falls back into a victim/aggressor dynamic. Holding others, to be responsible, or wanting them to take responsibility for our feelings, fits into the victim aggressor model. When we don't take responsibility for our own experience, its kind of like saying to your aggressor, you are responsible, you have the power; therefore, I don't.
Never again seems to be holding onto a wound. In this case it almost seems like the whole culture is holding that same vibration, as story, as memory, as an energetic signature. It could look like victimization, sorrow, loss, martyrdom, sacrifice, it could even feel like a responsibility or burden. When you hold this energy as your truth, you call in more of the same, just like a magnet. When we own our true feelings and forgive ourselves for our complicity, we can heal ourselves. "Me too", may be a step toward self empowerment if we don't also hold (and therefore attract) the old image of women as the "weaker sex". We cannot blame others and still own our power.
It is in the present that we heal and create. Gratitude is one way to create a change in the energetic space we hold for the planet. Gratitude brings us into alignment with a present time and higher vibration. As we change our experience to gratitude, love, and heal through compassion, we begin to attract more of that vibration. When we can recreate our experience with a new energetic picture, by seeing ourselves and our ancestors from a vibration of gratitude, a new story unfolds. The things that we were in resistance to are no longer in our story, they leave our energy field, no longer a magnet for wounds.
There is a place for resistance in recognizing problems, and in owning them. But don't get stuck there. Then what? Take the step to look deeply and see where you may be holding the energy of resistance and find a way to forgive self and others. In the present there is no blame. Be present, Love who we are as individuals, as women, as a collective, as a culture. Accept joy in living here and now by saying YES and inviting more positive feelings and experiences into life. Create a vision where there is equality. Where are your NO's, and are they in conflict to your YES's?
Its all about holding the vision clearly. An energetic picture creates your reality. Create a vision where there is equality, joy, truth and love. What does it feel like, sound like, taste like? We are all divine expressions of spirit and when we hold a vision, we are creating the possibility to make our vision real for ourselves.
This is an exploration of activism through conscious creation. . . I know this seems like a simplistic picture, but sometimes it's the simple things we do that create real change.
