“Vultures” John Mayer Click here for a little background music for your reading pleasure 🙂
I sometimes feel threatened by the idea that certain kinds of people exist in this world who walk the Earth. I do realize that the protective power of faith and love can literally walk a man through a field of racing bullets virtually unscathed. But, that’s not always the case.
With that said, it seems we may never know quite when or how these leeches dressed as leprechauns will cross our paths & we will have to conduct ourselves accordingly. In such an instance then, we must act to repel an obtuse demeanor or gritty vibration.
Karma has a way of being a mysterious animal & we may never know when the hands of fate are gonna reach out and twist ours by tossing an unruly irreverent character up in the mix. I guess it could be said, that it’s fun when life throws ya a lil challenge here or there. But this kind of challenge doesn’t seem fun to me. This kind of challenge spells “Danger” with a capital D. These people test all your stability, integrity, fortitude, quick-wit & strength. These persons I speak of are nothing like fun. They breed social asphyxia, stirring poison into the pot….secretly. A wolf in sheep’s clothes some say even, due to the fact that in most cases, these personalities are very skilled manipulators. I won’t glorify them much more than that.
There have been times I felt like “The Grim Zapper.” Times when I felt like I had to quick flip the dark hooded robe overhead & whip out my proverbial sharp shiny sickle made of justice to slash away the many weeds that keep attempting to block my progress or clutter my path. I’m talking about people, this time, not thoughts. These “people weeds” grow and tangle to form traps or knotty nests that can trip us up, get us stuck and essentially impede our progress. I know I am not imagining it. They definitely exist. It’s not just some big giant illusory conspiracy I just made up. Not everyone is present with good vibes & proper intentions. Acknowledging that… is warrior wisdom.
No person is “bad” really. I’m a firm believer in redemption, atonement, karmic reversal, forgiveness and change. I do think that humans just keep reincarnating over and over again upon this Earth until they begin to evolve into lighter freer creatures set apart from any and all dark forces that they may have karmically patterned themselves with throughout their time travels. Maybe once in a while there may appear to be that one soul that doesn’t seem redeemable. But I’m sure if that’s the case, hypothetically there could be some weird realm that exists where he or she is welcome to hang out in until they decide otherwise. Limbo, hell, some dark devilish painful torture chamber underground burning in fire for all eternity made of fallen angels, forsaken sad saints and groveling doomed suffering troll souls… I doubt it. But, if such realms exist so to accommodate souls that keep choosing to use their human experience to descend deeper into darkness and serve “evil” well then, so be it. I still think there is a way out of there if one so desires at some point. “Eternal Damnation” is not something that makes sense to me if indeed all religions teach about a loving God who always forgives. At the end of the day though, “if it doesn’t apply, let it fly.” A person would have to be a serial evil doer with absolutely no remorse, to be initiated into that clan. Makin a few mistakes or even big mistakes throughout your lifetime doesn’t qualify you for “hell.” lol
Anyway, for now, let’s just say that typically, all people can be measured on an invisible scale of healthy to toxic. Depending on where a person falls on that scale, is how we are able to discern their relevance to our lives. Personally, I prefer to draw people to my life who are generally healthy, of a higher brighter vibratory frequency, and who have graduated their own life path from harsh mistakes, lurid lessons, and darker states to a freer, attuned, aligned, self-loving, self-aware, self-care mode of operation. I prefer the kind of people that generally choose to be free and whole and happy most of the time with a propensity towards tapping “Source” energy versus sapping mine. But that is surely not always the case. Ha ha ha…!
Any person who has ulterior motives does not have your best interest at heart, period. When a person or group is lurking around you that practices any form of over-indulgence, self-loathing, greed, lust, jealousy, abuse or even the most subtle cases of neediness, insecurity, fear, anger, depression or depravity…that is a sure sign of a decaying or worst yet, a rotting soul. I can smell it from a mile away, just like bad breath from a cavity or a corpse in the sun. Gross. Rotting from the inside out on some level, they will eventually burst into the flames of their unevolved irresponsible irreverent choices, their karma. Any person choosing to engage in actions or activities that feed off of outside resources such as drugs, alcohol, sex, food….or other people’s character, wealth, health or status or even worse… prey on a person’s vulnerability or weakness or belittle them…..in order to feel good, gain power, courage, control or happiness……is a vampire. An energy vampire. A psychic vampire. The book “The Celestine Prophecy” written by James Redfield, speaks about “control dramas.” Let’s pause for a moment, and listen to what the prophecy states:
“When we use a “Control Drama” to hold power over another, we absorb their energy, leading to a sense of gratification and motivation to continue the practice. We thus become ‘addicted’ to the sensation and we will get progressively more demanding and out of control in our efforts to absorb even more energy from our interactions with others”
“The 4th Insight announced that eventually humans would find wholeness in a spiritual universe made of magnetic energy, an energy that can sustain us and respond to our expectations. Yet, we would also see that because we have been disconnected from the larger source of this energy, we are left feeling weak, insecure and in need.
In the face of this shortage, we have always sought to increase our personal energy in the only manner we have fully understood: by seeking to psychologically steal it from one another. We seek to find some way to control and thus to remain on top in the encounter. All we know is that we feel weak, insecure and lost and when we control others we feel better. What we don’t realize is that this sense of feeling better hurts the other person. It is their energy that we have stolen. Though this struggle is largely unconscious, it underlies all of the human conflicts in the world. Most people go through their lives in a constant hunt for someone else’s energy.”
Me: With that said, these people that roam the Earth are essentially not givers, but takers. They are vultures and thieves. They steal from others what they themselves do not have, so that they can feel liberated on some level and relieved for a time by the false sense of security or satisfaction they themselves do not feel adequate enough to gain independently. Apparently, these people are unable to tap the inner resources of light and love within, for whatever reason. I say…take a yoga class or somethin’, join a prayer group, or just go soak up the sun’s energy in your backyard if that’s the only evident greater force u can relate to for Heaven’s sake.
Let the prophecy speak once more:
“Spiritual consciousness is the key to ending human conflict in the world because, during each encounter, we are receiving energy from another source–a source we will eventually learn to pull from unconsciously.
Once humans understand their struggle, the insight continued, we would immediately begin to transcend this conflict. We would begin to break free from the competition over mere human energy…because we would finally be able to receive our energy from another source.
As you emerge into the Fourth Insight from the Third, you are becoming fully aware of the Universe’s ruling principle: GIVING and see it returning in your life. Now practice giving your energy instead of taking it and see how you feel.”
Me: I surely do support “The Celestine Prophecy” and all of its valuable insights. Yes, I affirmatively agree that we must all learn to master the art of tapping “Source” energy and thus training ourselves to be givers, for it is evidently the key to eradicating “control dramas.” However, for now, sadly, we live in a modern day world of many. Those of us who have a fighting chance we must learn how to navigate these waters. “When in Rome”….as they say.
We live in a world where most people appear to be intrigued by the underbelly of society on some level, where we are captivated by violence, murder, addiction, tragedy, war, crime, conviction, persecution and prosecution. And then of course…triumph! From all these things. Everyone loves a good heroic ending…
We must recognize though, that the evils in the world really only exist and propagate due to centuries of old deep held beliefs in a “dark force” that seem to influence us all to compromise what’s good into something that’s bad. Whether that dark force really exists or not, or maybe it’s merely an illusion that we’ve created for ourselves…my thoughts are: we still have the individual right to choose for ourselves, what kind of “force” we wish to feed. It’s a very well-known concept and universally accepted truth that human beings were born with the freedom of will to choose. But unfortunately, some people choose the dark side, period. Some souls keep choosing the dark side, over and over and over again. I can’t say if they’ll ever crossover to the light side. I can’t say why some human beings that walk the Earth seem soulless even. There is an element of evil that exists within that particular populous of people that have chosen whatever it is that creates lower vibrations. Which is fine. Let them keep creating them. I am not here to save the world from monsters and minions. The design and destiny of humanity and Earth is a story told by the mysterious Universe and I can only know what I know. I am not here to figure out why toxic people exist or why certain evils still harm us and our world. But all the while, while I cannot stop people from being toxic, I can sure learn how to ward their unwelcome asses off.
The stories of good and evil and the “deadly sins” and the Ten Commandments all exist maybe just to discern things. To teach us how to recognize poisonous behaviors and know the difference between right and wrong. To give us a moral compass, ethical standard or code of proper conduct that we may measure ourselves against to gauge the quality of our individual character, keep karma in tow, and adjust any and all major or minor disparities within our families and communities. If we know what poisonous behavior looks like, maneuvers like, what it hides behind, how it tries to fool, trick or deceive us… we will recognize it and have the ability to dodge it before it can harm us. Awareness of what to notice, see, or spot… even lurking in cloudy waters, is a very useful weapon against any and all “evils.” And I think that it’s probably a really good idea for us all to get some: Awareness. #WarriorWisdom
There is a distinct difference between awareness and fear. Don’t get having awareness confused with paranoia or fear, these are two very different states indeed. Armed with awareness, we can catch predators in their tracks based on noticing and sensing and intuitively knowing, and then choosing to deter them from us or simply choosing to walk or run in the opposite direction. Might I add, facing them if necessary isn’t such a bad idea either. I can’t be sure if “killing with kindness” ever hurt anyone…..but, love sure does conquer all, in theory. Kindness carries with it light and love, and therefore, any dark force will be inclined to hide or cower in the face of it’s sunny goodness. Melt in the daylight. You know….like a vampire or heck, like the Wicked Witch of the West….”I’m melting! I’m melting!” lol
Power and protection go hand in hand with the weapon of awareness, and using that weapon wisely shall never fail us. Fear and paranoia only cripple our ability to face difficulty or danger efficiently. In turn, we demonstrate weakness and vulnerability thereof, and a shark will sure as shit, smell blood in the water. An attack dog smells fear, just like psychic vampires sense an opportunity to feed on a weak mind or heart, or anyone with their guard down, for that matter.
Sounds all dark and even morbid at times, but the subject matter is so very relevant. The fact that un-evolved, toxic, slightly out of tune or very unbalanced, unhealthy, and even “evil” people exist in the world is irrefutable. They could live right next door, down the street, even at your school or workplace. Good people like you and me cannot go on about our merry way through life thinking that everyone is good in the world just like us. It is simply not true. Turn on the news. Read the papers. Check the sex offender registry for your 10-mile radius. Prisons are overcrowded and heaping with tribes, cults and gangs of assassins and scam artists. People hurt and harm other people every day in the world. Sometimes even in your backyard. Control dramas are still so very much alive in circa 2016, and so are the droves of energy vampires. It is man’s karmic wheel spinning. It is what it is.
I am not stating all this to make anyone sad, depressed, scared or negative…I am simply stating all this to let you know that I think it is important information to have. We can’t very well walk around in some kind of la-la land, thinking that we are just not gonna be subject to our enemies once in a while, if not daily, on some level or in some way, shape or form. By enemies, I mean anyone not on our team. The team of light travellers, the “good ones” or good human beings. Those of us who are givers, those of us who are mentally, emotionally and physically healthy, spiritually aware, universally in tune to Source energy. Those of us who are plugged into the greater good. That team. Check out www.abraham-hicks.com for more about “Source energy.”
It’s kinda comparative to the two superhero clans. You are either on one side or the other. And by the way, some people don’t even know they are playing for a team. They are just either ignorant or slightly leaning in one direction or the other at times. Sometimes toxic, sometimes not, depending on what mood they are in. We have to be aware of them too. Darkness lingers in even the purest of hearts. Which is fine. We are beautifully flawed as humans. There are many people only halfway there and/or struggling to crossover, if you will. But one man’s beautiful flawedness shouldn’t become my problem, issue or harm. The art of learning how to dodge bullets is only taught by and through awareness. And awareness doesn’t discriminate. It just spots the stuff, whether it exists in an evil to the max person, or just a person having a bad day. Bullets shoot out sometimes from the most unexpected obscure places. Even the most evolved human can still drop the ball sometimes.
I’m not perfect, but I will be damned if I would choose to deliberately go into some kind of dark mode that leads me to be a predator or vampire or toxic individual that harms others. That’s simply not going to happen, if I can help it. When I make mistakes or have a negative moment or have to contend with some kind of flaw, personal issue, or inner demon….I will do my best to deal with it without infecting others. I am not gonna take out my shit on the dog, the kid or my husband. Not good. Rule #1: “evolved people” don’t do that, and if we slip and do it by accident, we practice forgiveness of ourselves and make our amends promptly. Need I say, “beautifully flawed.” No biggie.
The best advice I think that I can give to myself and others is to practice awareness via tuning the intuition and learning how to sense energy and vibration. Learning to spot control dramas, know what psychic vampires look like by learning to see beyond the veil of people’s manipulative personalities, taking the blinders off in the moment by not being distracted from the truth with prejudice or preconceived notions based on appearance. Looks can be deceiving. Assumptions never are accurate. “Assume: makes an ass out of u & me…”
Having open eyes and an open mind will allow us to see the signs, spot the red flags, and sense any and all dangers, even the slightest ones. Once we’ve spent enough time and given enough unabridged unbiased attention to all components of a person, we reach a moment when we can make a fair assessment. Then and only then, will we be able to discern where that person belongs in our life. Either in it personally or professionally on some level, close to us, standing on the edge, coming in and out for brief times, or maybe just not at all. Word ta the wise: even your best friend can betray you. Remember Judas? Hey, some animal species eat their offspring for crying out loud. “Mama! Why are you coming toward me like that?!” said baby bear. Yes, I said bear. Google it… lol. That’s some dark irony.
Sorry. So yes, always be aware. There is a fine line between trust and awareness. Love is blind? Only if you are.
Keep your glasses on no matter how flawless you may think a relationship is.
You were born into this world alone. And you will die that way as well. You alone are responsible for your happiness, peace, contentment, and wealth and heath and wholeness. Don’t let anyone hurt, harm or hinder your freedom to protect and preserve that. Not your Mom, Dad, child, lover, boss, best friend, or even the President of the United States of America. No one has the right to steal from you or manipulate your journey, under the guise of goodness, authority, senoirity or status. It’s our job to spot any and all attempts to hurt, harm or harass our lives, and protect ourselves. Awareness is our friend and should be accompanied with a sharp frequent visualization of a nice thick beam of light encircling us for protection at all times…”A circle of white light” as they say.
