Conquering Demons

Too often we attend to the material things. We focus on getting a certain job or achieving a tangible goal, such as weight loss or purchasing a house, but the truth is, and this has been said before-- none of those things will bring you the peace or joy you truly desire. The key to ultimate peace and joy is being whole and complete, and to be those things a transformational process must happen within. Healing is a part of this process and conquering demons is a part of healing. 

Naming your demons

First, I want to say that they aren't our demons, or mine or yours. They are demons or low vibrational spirits that have attached themselves to us and therefore can be detached. We are always aware of these spirits at some level of consciousness, and sometimes aware of the healing that needs to take place, but we tend to overlook it. An analogy for this type of awareness would be visiting a grocery store. At the grocery store we are exposed to tons of different veggies and fruits or varieties of cereal, all of which we have skimmed over and others of which we have actually walk up to, smelled, held, and got to know. Now we are able to put names to certain veggies, fruits or cereal brands every time we  come in contact with them even if we don't always encounter them at the same grocery chain. Well, those types of nameless spirits are attached to us and they show up in different forms-- ie. road rage, defensiveness, casual sex, and gossiping are just a few examples of the long list of possible forms these negative low vibrational spirits show up as actions and character traits. We are usually able to justify these behaviors very well, usually placing blame elsewhere (a cause), which led to our reaction (effect); however, it is time to be accountable for our own actions and understand that the way we choose to behave and navigate our way through life is a reflection of ourselves and the demons we have collected.

When I say 'name your demons', I don't mean literally-- but get up close and personal with them by paying attention to your negative and self-sabotaging behaviors and question when you started exhibiting them, or who are you around when you exhibit them, question why, where they stem from, and especially question exactly what low vibrational energy is holding you down. See, there isn't a road rage or gossip spirit per say, but maybe that road rage is the spirit of anger or impulse, and the habit of gossiping is in really the spirit of insecurity or jealousy because “I’ve never met a mean person that was happy”. As I said before our actions are a reflection of us! And the truth is truly happy and peaceful people are not negative.

Awareness: What, How, When, Where, Who, and Why?

Once you are able to identify or name (the what) the negative spirits keeping you from obtaining peace and happiness, address the other vital questions.

How: How does this spirit express itself through you? Your response here would be an action word or verb and should be expressed as a complete thought. (Ex) The spirit of impulse expresses itself through me by acting before I think, sometimes causing me to be emotionally and physically abusive and later makes me feel remorseful and embarrassed, and requiring me to apologize more than I would like. BE AS DETAILED as you need to be, while remaining concise, this is more effective for your healing.

When and How: When did you start exhibiting these behaviors? At what age? And when do you exhibit them now? In what types of situations? (Ex) I started experiencing the spirit of impulse as a child in the form of temper tantrums when I was told "no" and when I would fight. Now I become impulsive when I am overwhelmed with emotion. I become impulsive when someone says something to make my blood boil by get nasty back with them, or at the mall when I am overwhelmed with admiration or desire and I end up buying things I do not need or cannot afford.

Where: In what type of environment to these negative spirits show up through your actions? Where did you first witness these negative spirits outside of yourself and how did you feel about them? (Ex) I can be anywhere and experience the spirit of impulse, but is the strongest and hardest to conquer in environments where I feel attacked or judged or when I am not sober. I first witnessed impulse at the age of 3 or 4. I watched my mom's anger escalate from verbal disagreements to punching out glass windows during street altercations. At that time the spirit of impulse was frightening and hurtful to me.

Being able to identify your feelings towards the negative spirits in someone else's actions and apart from your actions will allow you to be less biased about the ugly reality of the demons attached to you and will ignite a desire in you to want to conquer them.

Who and How: Who first exposed you to these spirits through behavior or character? Was it a person you admire or a person of influence? And who do you want to be? (Ex) I first met the spirit of impulse through my mom, who I look up to and learn a lot from. I want to be a loving, rational, even tempered, patient, creative person, who inspires and heals through various creative channels such as blogging. (Feel absolutely free to write a whole page or book on the version of yourself you would be proud of completely). I can start working towards achieving the desired version of myself by remaining aware of the negative spirits attached to me and planning to get ahead of them by setting boundaries and guidelines for myself such as remaining sober, removing profanity words that label people things besides their name from my vocabulary, and continuing to stay abreast on tips provided in the thousands of self help articles on the subject.

Why: Why do you allow the spirits to show up in your actions? Why do you identify them as negative spirits and want to detach yourself from them? (Ex) I allow the spirit of impulse to overtake me because it serves as a quick release/expression of the emotions overwhelming myself in the moment. I identify impulse as a negative spirit and would like to detach from it because it can sometimes cause hurt to others or damage to myself and often leave me regretful. Also, I do not like acting emotionally unintelligent.

Now to end on a positive note, write and speak an affirmation that clearly states the spirit you are going to conquer and how.

“I have complete control and power over myself. I have allowed the spirit of impulse to show up in my actions, but today I choose to revoke its presence and access. I will speak this affirmation every time the spirit of impulse attempts to show up and show out. I run this show, with class and ration.”

Now replace the negative spirit with a positive one that can get the job done and is in align with who you want to be.

“From now on when I am overwhelmed with emotions, I will allow the spirit of poise to step in and show up in my actions. Poise will allow me the time I need to think things through and be one with my higher self.”

Remember conquering demons or negative behavioral habits more than likely will be difficult, but nothing you cannot overcome and achieve. Stay focused on the version of yourself you would be completely proud of and alway strive to be in align with that; sooner or later you will be much lighter and won’t even recognize that lower vibrational version of yourself.

Intro to Christ Consciousness: Section 111

Who is Christ?

Christ has been referred to by many names. Some say Jesus, which has been transliterated to Yeshua or Yahushua, and you even have those that view Gandhi as a Christ. What is important to remember about these figures is their way of being. They were exemplary leaders, each a driven visionary and lover that faced trial and ridicule with wisdom and poise . It has been said and written that Christ is the son of God or God in the flesh, but I am here to tell you that we are also. Christ is God as God is in all, and therefore Christ was a walking example of what we all are capable of being.

What is Christ Consciousness?

When we think of the term Christ we think of some one-off supreme human, but in actuality, Christ is a consciousness available in all on us. It is a state of awareness that makes truth available to us and a state from which we operate on the frequency of love in favor of the masses. At this level of ascension we are no longer plagued with emotional or physical pain, anger, hate and other low vibrational feelings. Instead we are completely healed and capable of healing others; we are open, honest, and loving. At this state you are responsible and accountable for your own power. This state of being is often depicted as surreal, but it is very real.

Where does it come from?

Christ consciousness is a gift from The Creator. With that being said it is not something that just falls out the sky and hits us on the head, it is intricately woven into our being and we only access it through free will. While some of us may be mentally stronger while others are more spiritually devoted, Christ consciousness is available in everyone. Mastering it is not easier or harder for one person over the other because it really is like going to war with yourself.

How?

When we observe biblical story of Adam and Eve, we are made aware that both delighted in ignorance of the unknown until they ate an apple from the tree of knowledge. Eating the apple then gave them free will. Will, you see, is the gift and curse, and it is the only way to Christ consciousness as it was the way from it. In order to be your higher (Christ) self you simply have to make a choice and be willing to do whatever is in align with that or-- the more challenging thing, stop doing things that are not in align with that. Christ consciousness starts with an awareness of self always! It is not an opportunity to switch your spirit out for a new one, it is an open invitation for transformation, and to transform something you have to know the basis of what with you’re working. So you first have to be honest with yourself. What are my healthy habits? Which of my habits are harmful? Do I harbour resentment? Do I think positively? Am I selfish?-- You get the point. Secondly, you have to have some sort of vision of you in such state of consciousness. Vision comes with knowledge and meditation, so learn more about Christ, and identify your feelings towards Christ, whether it be one biblical figure or numerous historical figures. Determine what you need to incorporate or remove to be progressive in your walk. What does that look and feel like from the inside of your being? The easiest way to view yourself is through rose-colored glasses or from a frequency of love, rather than fear. When you begin to act or think in everyday life ask is it from love or fear, and be honest with yourself as Christ consciousness is about purity. It is the frequency of love that allowed Christ to be so forgiving, healing, dedicated, and rational, and fear that nearly drove him to deny the prophecy he was called to fulfill. We must be bigger than our physical world obstacles and always resonate with the spirit.

Christ consciousness is something that is being talked about more frequently and openly with the decline in religious interests, and so of course there are thousands of article on paths to Christ Consciousness. Some of the encouraged  spiritual practices of these paths are: meditation, yoga, and prayer, but at the core of each is a centeredness and awareness of self. I encourage you to find what works for you and to be devoted to your mission. No matter what, don’t give up and seize opportunity to access yourself and prosper.

Easter or Ishtar?-- Untying Truth and Intent

What is Easter?

Easter is a holiday which takes place every year on the Sunday following the 1st full moon (also 14th moon) after the spring equinox, the first day of spring according to the direct positioning of the sun on the Earth’s equator . The moon following this sun is interchangeably referred to as a full moon or the 14th moon (adhering to the “14th moon” makes the celebration easily tracked since it not guaranteed to be full at the same time annually). On Easter, supposedly the resurrection of Christ is celebrated. This is the day christians believe Christ in flesh rose from the dead after just being nailed to a cross three days prior.

The questions that have been posed in regards to Easter celebration are:

  1. Why would the day Christ rose from the dead be inconsistent in celebration?

  2. What is the purpose of dyed eggs?

  3. What is the symbolism of a bunny?

Growing up, I never knew. But it is said that the contemporary holiday derived from an ancient pagan (not to be depicted as wrong or bad, but unpopular) holiday in celebration of Ishtar (pronounced ‘Ice-Star’), the goddess of love, fertility  and heaven. Ishtar started her own religion which placed her at the center of worship. In the story of Ishtar, Ishtar, then known as Semiramis served as a queen of Babylon alongside her king/husband Cush. Cush and Semiramis had a child and called him Nimrod. After Cush’s death, Nimrod replaced his father as King of Babylon and as husband of his mother, Semiramis. Nimrod was later killed and chopped into little itty bitty pieces and scattered across the land, all of which which were recovered with the exception of his penis. Because his penis was not recovered, his mother-wife, Semiramis, claimed he could not resurrect in flesh and instead  his spirit was harvested by the rising sun and that Nimrod was to be referred to as Baal (the sun-god) going forward. Semiramis often openly spoke of the 28-day cycle the moon adheres to, and she taught (to her Kingdom) that she herself was a product of the moon-god, birthed from a “moon egg” dropped in the Euphrates river during the first full moon after the spring equinox or Paschal Moon. Ishtar is said to have been impregnated immaculately by the sun rays of Baal and later gave birth to her and her late son-husband’s son, Tammuz, who happened to be fond of bunny rabbits. Tammuz was later killed by a wild pig, which is why it is tradition to eat ham on contemporary Easter Sunday. The modern 40-day lent period is said to have been established by Semiramis as a period of mourning her son-husband’s death leading up to his spirit going to live in the sun. Traditions of Ishtar also included “sacred” prostitution and the sacrificing of children created in the act of prostitution to pay a debt (or for sins). Modern day studies will equate the Pagan holiday to a cover up for satanic rituals practiced and encourage by the world rulers.

Why is Easter not the celebration of Christ’s Resurrection?

Well because  No. 1: The whole concept is plagiarized. To be spiritual, we must be able to make connections between cosmos, nature, and man, because has it not be said and accepted that the creator or “God” is in everything? When we observe the Paschal moon, the spring equinox and Christ rising from the dead, we can identify a common concept of renewal. During a Paschal moon, the moon is made full, literally depicting the ending of one cycle and the beginning of another of a different energy (cosmically). Following the spring equinox, the land is reborn with the growth of new green land and the blossoming of colorful plants (hence the egg dye and new clothes), and many animals awaken from hibernation. In the bible the resurrection of Christ is symbolic of a new man or way of living. Thus bringing me to my second point, that the resurrection of Christ is a spiritual process that has to take place within (each of us) and that ultimately Christ is an attainable level of consciousness.

What is christ consciousness? Well, stayed tuned for next week’s discussion. In the meantime do your own research that way we all have valuable points to offer. But all-in-all, Easter is not the celebration of the resurrection of Christ, which is why the symbolism makes little sense.

What exactly does that mean?

"An artist's duty, as far as I'm concerned, is to reflect the times.”

-Nina Simone

Well, around the time I curated this platform, I had just started coming into consciousness or "waking up" through a sequence of events which can be read about here. About 6 months later I had the epiphany to start this underground music blog which would not only promote dope underground and thought-provoking music, but serve as a vessel for others seeking truth. In this section I would like to discuss my history ("black" history), social problems, spirituality-- and anything else considered "woke". It has always been my intention to include this section in my blog, but I just did not know where to start. I felt I did not know enough to lead a revolution, but I realize I do know enough; I may know something some of you guys don't know and vice versa. I want this section of my blog to be highly interactive. Share your thoughts and insights with me! Pose topics! Start debates!-- anything that will get us thinking is encouraged here. We are all developing and have so much more to learn than we know. This is however not the place for the ego. Be humble in your responses to myself and others that participate in discussions here. And lastly be open! If all else fails, remember: agree to disagree.

Peace, Love, and Truth!
