?.1 What's the deal with the dark side? The intention of this article
Reducing fear and maybe an altering in your viewpoint of the dark side to your benefit.
There are countless people that are avoiding astral travel, the spectrum goes from religious fanatics, that claim it's the work of the devil to people that are simply afraid of the dark side.
But the truth is none of them should be your viewpoint, it's just a spectrum of the same fear.
People limit themselves and make things much worse than they actually are.
Let me explain. The dark side
Many of us carry an old and rigid viewpoint of the dark side in ourselves.
This viewpoint is deeply rooted in our collective psyche, it's been there for a long time, but the good news is, that we can always make decisions for ourselves.
I'm not in any manner a worshiper of the dark, but we have to accept the dark first, because we are able to transform it.
Many people call our universal game an integration game, an integration of light and dark. This means not that there exists good and bad, simply light and the seeming absence of light in our oneness.
The truth is that everything has it's intention, the "Universal consciousness" also known as god has intended it, how should be there a dark side, intended by god, without a purpose?
Actually you will have other lifetimes where you play darker roles.
This thought seems not comfortable, but from the viewpoint of our soul it is an very interesting experience.
There is so much potential in the integration of light and dark, that it will be used.
The spectrum of this universe, has an infinite number of dimensions, we often say that there are 12(13) or 33, which has to do with the fact that we can't grasp the concept of the universe with our mind. The map is not the territory, but it helps a lot to use the most common model with 12 dimensions and the layers in each dimension.
Above is "heaven" and in below the light gets dimmer.
We are in the 3rd dimension, with all its density and tardiness.
Above is the 4th dimension, which is less dense but has different layers, with the spectrum from dark to light.
From the beginning of the 5th dimension, we are returning to oneness and unconditional love.
Incarnating in the 3rd can be really interesting, because of the separation - there are things that don't exist above.
What if your soul is really curious to play games and wants to know how things feel like from a micro perspective?
It's really interesting for higher beings to watch us, they do know unconditional love, but what's with conditional love, the love to nature, to our family or even sexual fetishism? What use?
This is just an example of how we set parameters for our growth.
Before incarnating we choose some parameters, especially if we are trying to resolve some issues. When you had for example in a lifetime the deep rooted issue of feeling like a failure, you probably will use in one of the next lifetimes an environment that stimulates you to resolve what you carry in your soul.
It can be your parents, who are struggling hard with their life and feel themselves like failures.
You carry the energy deep inside you in your "emotional body" you do store energies - every influence of outside that is in energetic resonance will stimulate these feelings to come up.
That's why we say, when we are upset with others, that we just hate the side in ourselves, which is energetically somehow still present.
This strengthens the energetic field of this issue. You probably know this from Eckhart Tolle, he describes this energy field as "pain-body".
If we don't resolve this issue consciously, then this pain will grow until the point we can't stand it and we have really enough, then we try to work on it.
What do we with choosing that "failure parent"... ?
We hold up a mirror to ourselves.
And that's exactly what's the dark side is.
The dark reflects everything that isn't still with god and that's a lot and it's very relative by nature.
Especially in a dualistic world-view of the third dimension and our conditioned either/or thinking, we do mistakes and judgments.
We judge things in good/evil, light/dark.
But how could they be different? Everything is "God".
What makes you different from a negative entity on the astral plane?
It's the degree of separation to the light, or in other words the god in ourselves.
In the same relation we are more separated from God than our higher self.
If this higher self chooses darker roles, how could it have a bad intention, when it's much more aligned with God than we are?
Much more than that - we say that everything is one? So how can we be separate from everything that goes on this universe?
The light and the dark are being creative and merging again to one, so why don't you want to help that process in yourself and collectively? The solution - acceptance and solving inner conflict
Wisdom and inner strength kills fear.
You have a free will and willpower behind that, with which you use to create your circumstances - or many of us to a high degree do not.
We need to understand, that we constantly hold a mirror to ourselves.
When we have no inner conflict we can even call on "fallen angels" without fear, they are playing roles. It feels ironic if an enlightened person would fear the dark side, wouldn't it? - he is just having a more adequate model of reality.
What are you doing now, are you your authentic self? How would you be when you would be enlightened?
Many of us play different roles themselves - when they are in a relationship, when they are in business or playing with children.
We are making an identity from these things for us and for others, but as you can imagine there is much more to the whole truth who we are.
Accept everything, accept yourself when you are a failure, accept yourself when you betrayed your partner or did other things. Jut polarizing to the light side, will store it even deeper in your subconscious and build new patterns. You will never dissolve the issue.
When we focus just on the light, we are very ignorant, we have a lot put in ourselves, its time to get rid of it. Did you wonder why you have nightmares? Would you release a murderer from jail without a long therapy just because he switched to the light side?
We should accept everything in ourselves and work on it, honestly and not flying like moths against the next light post and wait until it switches off again, just to see it was an illusion.
What we need is transformation, what we use is our negativity/dark side, otherwise would you feel a need to develop?
And there is a magic when we accept ourselves, we allow more of our real self to shine into the world.
Maybe you want to contemplate of situations of the past, where you where overwhelmed. What did happen by acceptance at the same time?
How does it feel to carry a lie in you? How do you feel when you speak it out and solve the issue?
From my own experience I can tell you that there will nothing hurt you, if you don't intend it somehow or are negative in the first place.
I did Astral Travel already before coming into basic school, what means in this case just before major conditioning.
I never had fear, though I was traveling and seeing any kind of what I'd call dark.
Years later I wish I'd be that unconditioned child again.
I have now sometimes fear, what is more a first impression shock that passes with loads of humor.
The more issues we solve and the more we accept, the more joy I get from my life, without even specific events. Even the little things gain in presence.
We are in control of our reality. We should "level up" our character to be happier.
