A Return to the Heart as the Source of Individuation of the Soul.by Angelica Wagner.

A Return to the Heart as the Source of Individuation of the Soul.

 

“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart? “Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Quantum physics expounds the theory that particles that make up matter do not really exist in static form; they are constantly appearing out of energy potentials that can be estimated statistically. What determines the appearance of matter and continuity is the information field that connects all information in the universe. So all there is in the entire universe is Consciousness.

In eastern philosophy Avaita literally means, “Not two. “ That is why when we say in medicine, “What is your diagnosis?” we are already fractured, because we are coming to” dia or two”. As soon as you perceive “other”, your perception is incorrect and manufactured by the brain. In reality all things are one. Although mostly this is not our life experience. There is “no self and God, only Self or to put it another way, only God.” (Mod 3 pg.70 Veltheim/Pilpovich).

 

At the core of these perspectives is the teaching that all of creation or manifestation is connected, and that we are not inseparable from it. It is the light of your consciousness that shines out from every one’s eyes. It is this tension between instinct and intellect that give us a split mind and creates a lack of consciousness. “

Carolyn Myss says, “The shadow aspects of our archetypes are fed by our paradoxical relationship to power. We are as intimidated by being empowered as we are to being dis-empowered. The Shadow can be seen as unexplored power. We frequently don’t know why we do the things that we do, or even how to cope with inexplicable fears. This leads to the painful conflicts when we feel one way and yet act another, separating mind and heart. “

This imbalance of force fragments our power. When our nature is fragmented, it is vulnerable to being dominated by fear. “If a kingdom is divided against itself, it cannot stand.” (Mark 3:24). As long as your heart and mind lack a channel of pure communication, you will be confused about what to do with your life. And when you find that vocation or purpose, you will experience a kind of spiritual suffering until you act on that passion. That suffering is actually a form of divine motivation, urging you to pursue a more authentic life. Yet how many times do we ignore the call, or stuff it into our being creating disease, or kill off our creativity to conform?

The more you know the faster you need to respond to this truth, because now you have “spiritual accountability.” Once you become aware how toxic anger, guilt resentment and blame are to the body, the sooner you have to act on the information in your field. (Mark 4:11, 21-22)” For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out to the open.” So when we stuff our emotions, say everything is ok, when it is not, give away or deny our power, we tell our Shadow self to go back to the closet. This often means striking out on your own. As a child if you hear “NO” often enough, you will build barriers to the world in your brain. This birthing of your own power requires that you take care of yourself first, even though to the outside world this looks selfish.”

Occasionally a person becomes fully conscious of the connection that is all there is in the heart center. This state is referred to as enlightenment, because the body mind is then filled with the clear light of Consciousness and not dimmed by any masks. For many years I collected masks from Africa and other countries for this very reason, to see how many times I denied my own truth, and chose to kill my spirit by wearing a mask, so I could make someone belief of reality right about MY life.

When rigid belief systems about separation lead to deep feelings of inadequacy and pain that can never let down our guard or us. We are constantly cowering from our own power. As this belief system is unlocked and defragged, we restore our innate sense of connection to the world through our heart center. By contrast, the individuation process in the heart is guided by a felt connection to Consciousness. The individuation process in the heart is the inspiration that drives the mental process of inquiry. This painful suffering is good for you, should you choose to heed it. Do you ask yourself,”‘ How am I not being God in my own life? How am I not showing up in my own life? How am I not expressing the truth of my own reality ” Choose your heart or die.

Some examples of a divided heart are found in “morning after stories.” We can choose any inappropriate behaviors such as having sex in a one night stand, eating a whole pizza out of frustration or drinking a whole bottle of something empty to cover up our empty life. We, then face, “the empty box in the morning syndrome”, instead of looking at the “empty life” or “the empty glass,” or “the empty house”, “the empty bottle of pills” , ‘ the empty toke of a joint”, wondering why we sold out our integrity and vision of true independence.

Why did we choose to grasp for sawdust instead of nutrition in the nourishment of our souls or why did we choose to poison our precious brain cells with booze or kill our adrenals with drugs? Why did we choose the 5th house of individuation instead of the 10th house?

What leaves you empty? Why? Emptiness occurs when there is no connection to the intimacy found in relationship to another like- minded soul, no life purpose fulfillment, no acceptance of the full responsibility for the management of your own spirit and the consequences of your own choices. The soul knows this and then it haunts us with the knowledge, until we choose CHANGE or choose disease.

 

As we age, we can no longer act like teenagers in our sexual lives, financial lives or in our digestive lives, because out bodies will let us know, “You are not being responsible”. External difficulties are always vehicles for us to work on our own internal challenges. Do we ask “why?”

Releasing both blame and guilt produces a relaxed mind. Releasing credit produces humility and deeper real relationships with others. Releasing all negative emotions, the truly creative person can work inside the zone, effortlessly producing many amazing things by staying in the question, “How does it get better than this?”

So as we seek the formal cause as the issue, the formal cause of something which defines what we are talking about, we deny our questions. We deny the “connecting principle of synchronicity which results from the ingression into actuality the thoughts and conditions we think about most bringing our lives into causality. ‘ (Tarnas).

Thus, Tarnas’ insights on the disenchantment of this world were essentially constituted in the gradual repression of formal causation. When this formal causation reemerges as a “re-enchantment of the world, “synchronicity occurs. The occurrence of synchronizations is seen as a continuing dialogue with the Unconscious and with the whole of life, and finally with the Divine. We become in love with life, in love with our potential, in love with our synchronizations. Why? We are in love with God who is truly and fully present in our lives in a real and concrete way. Doors open miraculously, opportunities come. The acausal effort of a linear life disappears.

Sometimes our resentment of another person has nothing to do with either money or power, but it has everything to do with how they manage their own potential. When you learn to call on your own courage will and heart, you will evoke grace. That is the paradox, because it takes courage to invoke grace when you have none. So how do we call on courage? By calling on our subconscious mind to come to the rescue.

The inspirations come to us in the first plane of “Waking experience”, or lucid dream, the second plane of “dream experience” of the subtle forms of the inner world. In the second they are digested, assimilated to the inner forces of the dreamer, and then comes the third plane of deep sleep. In the third, all is enjoyed and known unconsciously in the “Space within the heart, “the room of the inner controller, the source and end of it all. “ (Pg. 227 Joseph Campbell, Hero of a Thousand Faces.”)

 

This imbalance of forces, fragments our power. When our nature is fragmented, it is vulnerable to being dominated by fear. “If a kingdom is divided against itself, it cannot stand.” (Mark 3:24). As long as your heart and mind lack a channel of pure communication, you will be confused about what to do with your life. And when you find that vocation or purpose, you will experience a kind of spiritual suffering until you act on that passion. That suffering is actually a form of divine motivation, urging you to pursue a more authentic life. Yet how many times do we ignore the call, or stuff it into our being (the closet) creating disease, or kill our creativity by creating death to the Self when we cut off a piece of the heart?

 

This imbalance that occurs as the intellectual mind grows in strength and the heart is ignored which leads to separation, anxiety, fear and inadequacy. Not measuring up to our husband’s or family’s expectations of us creates either the need to conform, the need to rebel, or the need to die. This accumulation of fear weakens the kidneys, the adrenals, the reproductive system, the digestive system, and the nervous system.

 

External difficulties are always vehicles for us to work on our own internal challenges. Do we ask “why?” Releasing both blame and guilt produces relaxation. Releasing credit produces humility. Releasing any of these negative emotions, the truly creative person can work in the zone, effortlessly producing many amazing things by staying in the question, “How does it get better than this?”

 

So as we see the formal cause as the issue, the formal cause of something defines what we are talking about, we deny the question. We deny the “connecting principle of synchronicity which results from the ingression into actuality the thoughts and conditions we think about most bringing our lives into causality. ‘ (Tarnas). When we deny the question, we deny God. That’s where miracles live.

As we chose to access this heart center, and focus our outward work from this plane touching those in the consciously unconscious, wealth is born. Stars are created, and sorrow leaves the field. The Divine lives in our heart center, in joy, grace, love and miracles. A Return to the Heart is therefore the key source of individuation of the Soul.
