6- Sensing A Life Mission
Experiencing moments of profound “Spiritual Connection” opens us to the 6th Insight. We begin to receive a sense of clarity for where Synchronicity is taking us; what our “Life Direction” might be. This consciousness brings the strong Intuitions and guides us to our mission in this life. This could fall within any area of human endeavour or in the areas of life from relationships to finding passion in a career (education, business, medicine, or government services.) It is usually a vague glimpse of our future destiny, one that invokes in us a heightened sense of inspiration and fulfilment. Though somewhat undetermined, our Intuitions can stand as a general goal that will help us understand, and follow, our Synchronistic path and help us move forward.
The Sixth Insight Experience Study
In The Celestine Prophecy, the Sixth Insight is called, “Clearing the Past.” It allows us to grasp hold of the Fifth Insight, “The Message of the Mystics” by letting go of our preoccupation with the Fourth Insight, “The Struggle for Power.” The energy revealed in the Third Insight, “A Matter of Energy” is opened to us completely as we let go of gaining security from our power struggles and control. And instead, we acquire this energy from our God Connection.
The Sixth Insight teaches us that we most identify with our control drama style when we lose our Connection and are under extreme stress. It is at these times that our unconscious mechanical behaviours surface. We can choose to either ignore and repress our method of gaining security, or focus on and overcome it. Once we have become aware of this behaviour, we can stabilize our Connection and remain in regular contact with the true source of all energy. It is then that we can discover our life’s work or mission and start making our meaningful contribution to the world.
Before we can connect with the energy on a continuing basis, there is one large hurdle we must pass. The Sixth Insight deals with this issue.
We must stand up to our particular way of controlling others. Remember, the Fourth Insight reveals that humans have always felt short of energy and have sought to control each other to acquire the energy that flows between people. The Fifth then shows us that an alternative source exists, but we cannot stay connected with this source until we become completely aware of the particular method that we, as individuals, use in our controlling, and stop doing it—because whenever we fall back into this habit, we get disconnected from the source.
Changing How We Gain Energy
Changing our habits does not come easy because it has been largely unconscious behaviour. The key to bringing yourself fully into consciousness is to recognize how, in the early years of life, we all felt stressed and insecure in the world, and we grew disconnected from our Higher Energy source. As children, we discovered that we could get attention and would people move our way by acquiring a certain personality style of control. This replaced the Divine security and “energy” we so desperately need here on Earth. This style is something we repeat over and over again and usually serves to bring us and the people around us pain because we are stealing the energy we need. I call this our unconscious “control drama type” and each type also reveals how we human’s view the world around us.
I call it a “drama” because it is one familiar scene, like a scene in a movie, for which we write the script as children. Then we repeat this scene over and over in our daily lives without being fully aware of it. All we know is that the same kind of event occurs to us repeatedly. The problem is when we are repeating one scene over and over, the other scenes of our real-life movie, the high adventure marked by coincidences, cannot emerge.
The first step in the process of getting clear, for each of us, is to bring our particular control drama into full consciousness. Nothing can proceed until we really look at ourselves and discover what we are doing to manipulate for energy and to defend against pain.
Each of us must go back into our past, back into our early family life, and see how these habits developed. By recognizing the nature of how we control, we come closer to keeping these habits in our consciousness. Now, we can check ourselves, in the moment, and change how we gain our energy.
The Types of Control Dramas
Everyone manipulates for energy either aggressively, directly forcing people to pay attention to them, or passively, playing on people’s sympathy or curiosity to gain attention.
For instance, The Sixth Insight calls the intimidator drama, the most aggressive kind of drama for energy. You experience someone threatening you, either verbally or physically. You are then forced, out of fear of something bad happening to you, to pay attention to them and thus, give them energy. The person confronting with you is pulling you into the most aggressive kind of drama for energy.
On the other hand, you may have the experience of someone telling you about bad things that are happening to them. The confrontation could be about their health or a relationship, and they want you to change your behaviour to support them or be more sympathetic, sometimes even implying perhaps that you are responsible. Other times they may tell you that if you refuse to do what they need, these awful things will continue or get worse. This person is seeking to control at the most passive level, which is what the Manuscript calls a poor me control drama.
Anyone’s drama can be observed according to where it falls on this measure from aggressive to passive. If a person is subtle in their aggression, finding fault and slowly undermining your world in order to get your energy, then this person would be an interrogator. Less passive than the interrogator would be your aloofness drama. (Trying to lure you into connection by acting distant and unreadable. They want you to connect with them, but they only partially connect themselves, while withholding information.) So the order of dramas, from aggressive to passive, goes this way: intimidator, interrogator, aloof, and poor me.
Remember, there is a tendency to see these dramas in others but to think that we are free from such devices. Each of us must transcend this illusion before we can go on. Almost all of us tend to be stuck, at least some of the time, in a drama and we have to step back and look at ourselves long enough to discover what it is.
Once we see our drama, what happens next?
We are truly free to become more than the unconscious act we play. We can find a higher meaning for our lives, the spiritual reason we were born to our particular families. We can begin to get clear about who we really are. Once we find this truth, it can energize our lives, for this truth tells us who we are, the path we are on, what we are doing.
The process of finding your true spiritual identity involves looking at your whole life as one long story, trying to find a higher meaning. Begin by asking yourself this question: why was I born to this particular family? What might have been the purpose for that?
We are not merely the physical creation of our parents; we are also the spiritual creation. You were born to these two people, and their lives had an irrevocable effect on who you are. To discover your real self, you must admit that the real you began in a position between their truths. That’s why you were born there: to take a higher perspective on what they stood for. Your path is discovering a truth that is a higher synthesis of what these two people believed.
You are here because this is where you need to be to continue the evolution. Your whole life has been a long road leading directly to this moment. When you fully integrate this view of your life, you will have achieved what the Manuscript calls a clear awareness of your spiritual path.
According to the Manuscript, we all must spend as much time as necessary going through this process of clearing your past. Most of us have a control drama we have to transcend. Once we do, we can comprehend the higher meaning of why we were born to our particular parents, and what all the twists and turns of our lives were preparing us to do.
The first thing I do is focus on the environment around me. Then I try to remember how everything looks when I’m being filled with energy. I do this by recalling the presence everything displays, the unique beauty and shape of everything, especially plants, and the way colours seem to glow and appear brighter.
Then I try to experience that feeling of closeness, the feeling that no matter how far away something is, that I can touch it, connect with it. And then I breathe it in.
When we visualize that each breath pulls energy into us and fills us like a balloon, we actually become more energized and feel much lighter and more buoyant.
After I breathe in the energy, I check to see if I have the right emotion. Love is not an intellectual concept or a moral imperative or anything else. It is a background emotion that exists when one is connected to the energy available in the universe, which, of course, is the energy of God. That’s the level of energy you need to have.
Guiding Intuition and Synchronicity
As you fill up with inner energy, other kinds of thoughts enter your mind from a higher part of yourself. These are your intuitions. They feel different. They just appear in the back of your mind, sometimes in a kind of daydream or mini-vision, and they come to direct you, to guide you.
Once you become conscious of the questions active in the moment, you always get some kind of intuitive direction of what to do, of where to go. You get a hunch about the next step. Always. The only time this will not occur is when you have the wrong question in mind. You see, the problem in life isn’t in receiving answers. The problem is in identifying your current questions. Once you get the answers right, the questions always come. After you get an intuition of what might happen next, then the next step is to become very alert and watchful. Sooner or later Synchronicity or “coincidences” will occur to move you in the direction indicated by the intuition. Though somewhat undetermined, our Intuitions can stand as a general goal that will help us understand, and follow, our Synchronistic path and help us move forward.
Now, we begin to receive a sense of clarity for where Synchronicity is taking us; what our “Life Direction” might be. This could fall within any area of human endeavour or in the areas of life from relationships to finding passion in our careers (education, business, medicine, or government services.) It is usually a vague glimpse of our future destiny, one that invokes in us a heightened sense of inspiration and fulfilment.
Each of us must look at the significant turns in our lives and reinterpret them in light of our evolutionary question. Our children take our level of energy and raise it even higher. This is how we, as humans, continue the evolution. The difference now, with this generation, is that we are ready to do it consciously and to accelerate the process. No matter how afraid you become, you now have no choice. Once you learn what life is about, there is no way to erase the knowledge. If you try to do something else with your life, you will always sense that you are missing something.
The truth you are pursuing is as important as the evolution of the universe itself, for it enables evolution to continue. We all have a spiritual purpose, a mission, that we have been pursuing without being fully aware of it, and once we bring it completely into consciousness, our lives can take off.
Now it’s time to learn to evolve by yourself… consciously.
