Yesterday, I said that political correctness has become society’s default response. From my perspective, it is one of the many escape mechanisms we use for dealing with intensity.
If the sensations are physical, the body might shut down or involuntarily withdraw producing illness or even a coma.
If the sensations come from the intense passion of a relationship, the parties separate from one another. In some cases, the relationship may end.
If the sensations happen through intense conversation, a participant may drop into political correctness.
If the sensations derive from mental stimulation, the brain feels overloaded and depression may occur.
I often hear this complaint from readers when I write about all of the things that are happening in our world. They tell me the financial, government, religious, and spiritual situations become too much for them.
This isn’t an intellectual capability issue.
They understand what I’m saying. They just have trouble handling the emotional, physical, and psychological ramifications of the material. They may feel ill, become depressed, and not read the material.
I have found an alternative to avoiding intense experiences.
I lean into them so I can embrace them.
This is not some blind, adrenaline fueled rampage.
Instead, it is a state of being where time slows down, where I can accurately anticipate others’ reactions, and respond to them, often at a supernatural level. It is a place where I can hear spirit speaking to me, giving instructions and, at times, even using my facilities to do what I do not yet understand to do.
For example, I can watch a bread slice, loaded with butter and jelly, fall from the counter and influence it to land jelly-side up. I can pick it up from the floor and eat it without worrying about it containing harmful contaminants.
I can do all of this without panicking and without drama.
I became acutely aware of this several years ago as I drove down a city street with three other people riding in the vehicle.
As I approached a gas station on the right, a car, coming towards me, turned across my path towards the service station. I steered right, hoping the oncoming car would stop, just as another vehicle started to enter the road from the gas station. I was trapped.
Without thinking, I quickly accelerated, turned back to the left, drove through a tiny opening, and continued down the road unscathed.
It had happened so quickly that my passengers sat in a stunned silence that I broke by saying, “Pretty impressive driving huh?”
It was impressive. I had entered the zone and done the impossible.
I had reached a point of overstimulation. It was so intense I couldn’t handle it consciously and something else kicked in to help me negotiate the situation.
As I went through it, I was calm. Time slowed to a crawl. I saw every vehicle, found the only opening, and drove through it.
Today, I recognize this experience as a normal part of life. It is one way to practice connecting to spirit.
To use spiritual terminology, it is the training ground for ascension, the term many spiritual writers are using to describe our current shift.
And, it appears this shift is really happening. A variety of reports have come through in the past twenty-four hours that indicate a move forward has occurred. I will research their accuracy and start writing about them in tomorrow’s article.
