Communications are a transmission of energy, the giving and receiving of information. When we receive information from others we either energetically vibe with or reject what they are saying. If we are aligned with their words we have become responsible for energizing those words and thoughts. This gives those words the power to become manifest in a small band of awareness held by few or by a much larger band of awareness held by many.
What we are experiencing now is a major shift in conscious awareness, mostly through our communications with each other and with the world. As more and more people discuss positive, pro-active, consciousness raising topics they are transforming collective consciousness to a higher frequency of awareness which decreases the fear and despair of the predatory realm. This is why it is so important to be impeccable with your word, as both don Juan and Don Miguel Ruiz explained. Words create thought forms and the energy of those thought forms will increase as those thought forms are acknowledged and accepted by others. If we are energizing a positive thought form we are increasing the energetic frequency of that concept. Likewise, if we place our energy on a negative thought form, we are providing it the power it needs to increase.
Even though many people ask me to write more about the workings of the predator, this is the reason why I don’t like to discuss it. I know that by even discussing it we give it power. It is a dance on the edge of a double-edged sword. People need to recognize the predator for what it is so they may understand it and become free of it but we have to be careful not to give it the energy that will increase its food source and help it to thrive. Conquering the predator is an individual battle and once it’s done, it’s done. I have had my battles with it and I have unplugged. It still exists but now I just dance past it with the hopes that it will continue to lose power as more and more people stop giving it energy and new bands of awareness are created.
In discussing the Predator with Castaneda, Don Juan says, the only alternative left for mankind is discipline, Discipline is the only deterrent. But by discipline I don’t mean harsh routines. I don’t mean waking up every morning at five-thirty and throwing cold water on yourself until you’re blue. Sorcerers understand discipline as the capacity to face with serenity odds that are not included in our expectations. For them, discipline is an art: the art of facing infinity without flinching, not because they are strong and tough but because they are filled with awe.
You know how our biggest challenges occur when we decide that we are ready to release the ego? A sort of battle ensues as the ego continuously encourages us to uphold the safety net of familiarity. A process of psycho-spiritual integration begins to occur as the ego and center of consciousness within us stand to face each other. The ego, wanting to maintain the patterns and stories that have served as the foundation of our existence becomes threatened as the universal life-force essence and spiritual wholeness begin to embody our human form.
The same thing happens when we seek to be free from the predator. Think of the predator as a big, bad-ass ego that so many of us are trying to become free of. We, who are standing in the center of our consciousness and awareness, are facing the predator head-on. Like the ego, the predator feels threatened and wants us to maintain its destructive and consumptive behaviors from the band of density consciousness in order that it may prevail.
This is where the discipline comes in. We have to remain committed to traveling along the lines of awareness that move us towards higher consciousness knowing that we are uniting with our own self (the double) and in the process we remember ourselves as a manifestation of conscious awareness. We are able to see the beauty of this universe with utter clarity, our energy becomes renewed, and we vibrationally emanate our ability to be in a state of stillness and presence as the world continues to move without us.
This is the awe that don Juan speaks of, to stand in a state utter awe at the immensity of infinity, of the beauty and the potential that we are capable of as creator beings. It is this state of conscious awareness, and stillness that completely balances our energy and makes us invisible to the predator. The predator will lose its power as we each diffuse and disable its energy source.
(Here is an old post from 2009 that I wrote about the enormity of the predator, a time when I was recognizing how huge it is. Other related posts can be found through the search bar.)
