An Inside Job
Searching For Truth: A Blog by Sherri Smith
I feel peace; such a deep and calming presence in the midst of this chaos. Sure it gets challenged however I can now fast track my way back to this state. It’s returning to centre.
Over the last several years I have been removing myself from vibrations that rattle me, knock me off base and sink me into some deep dark places. It is not that I am some pure angelic force strolling around on this planet, in fact quite the opposite, we are all a work in progress. My own vibration has the potential to attract chaos when I am living it from within. It can also attract the polarity when you are becoming stronger as the negative energies want to keep you contained….thats a topic of boundaries and protection which is a whole different conversation. A powerful tool for me to shift was using discernment.
Discernment is not judgement, it does not impose labels or give rise to emotions. It is more about listening to the communication of the body and taking a step back when the language presents itself. The language of the body is not from thought, it is a felt sensation. Those butterflies in the stomach, chills, gut sense and such. An inner knowingness. It is a softer voice than the mind so it requires solitude and elimination of distractions to hear it. The design of our current existence is to keep us stimulated and busy if we choose to conform; perhaps this was a tactic to keep us enslaved and distant from our truest power, our sovereignty.
Discernment is taking in information and witnessing your response. Teachings, symbols, news, or any source of information can trigger emotions. Pause and witness that response…it could mean that your reaction, often quite strong, is a signal to your soul that there is a block within to be processed or you could arrive in that it is simply false information. The greater we become masters of discernment, with one of the most challenging aspects being the removal of your emotional attachments, the easier it becomes to identify this information as truth or resonance, or not. The old phrase of ‘sleeping on it’ are wise words, moving us from a reactive state to a responsive state. I have listened to podcasts on one day and digested many bits of information from it and found if I returned to it, dependant on its depth and content, and felt as though I was listening to something completely new. That is the art of softening the borders of our beliefs. It is also indicative that we can view the same thing with a different set of eyes, dependant on where we are personally standing, often day to day lately.
The truest teachings that I have encountered are not rigid, in fact they are of the polarity. It should invite you explore within how that sits in your heart, your inner work. The resistance that may arrive when we first digest it, if explored with an openness, will reveal our shadow self and provide the opportunity to clear away deep emotional wounds and limiting beliefs. It is the process of standing in the discomfort and allowing that which needs to rise and be addressed with various practices and then having the courage and wisdom to release it. I promise you on the other side of this process is the most beautiful state you could know. I can also assure you that no one on this earth knows everything and that new discoveries are being made each day which in turn will alter our beliefs. Very little is a universal truth.
One of the most disturbing phrases in my opinion is ‘conspiracy theory’. It is dismissive and damaging and dangerous, keeping us in this enslaved state of conformity and oppression. A divine right is freedom of thought. I struggle to comprehend how this can be lashed out so venometly towards an opposing thought or information when the very thing that may be being ‘protected’ by this phrase is a mistruth. It interests me that it was brought out at the time of questioning of JFK’s assassination and has been the defence in many horrific events that have followed in history. There has been such a massive infiltration into our media at this point in time, it becomes imperative to use our potent gifts, all found within this embodied state of discernment. In trusting our own wisdom.
As we reclaim our sovereignty a peace envelops you. You reside in a beautiful calming and very elevated frequency where truth requires no defence. You merely stand in it, walk with it and respond with it, often without words.
There has been a gift of time offered to many of us in this past year. A time to discern what truly feels important to hold onto in our lives. Some have done all they can to run from this solitude however on the journey within, and reclamation of our sovereignty, it is required. This time of reflection may also bring an awareness to what may need to be released, whether temporarily or permanently. Change is here and in my opinion, its here to make some noise. We were destined for disaster, and I have come to see this past year as a gift. It is destabilizing all the foundations that were built on unstable structures, of that which has kept us beyond reach of freedom; within and beyond us. True freedom.
Discover your centre, your Sovereignty. It is your power and your peace. Your magic and your purpose. Life is like a puzzle with the pieces all falling into place bit by bit. Nothing is of greater value as it all creates the final product of clarity. I invite you to open the box and begin, its a beautiful process with the most empowering gifts as each piece fits into place.
