A label to explain what we can’t comprehend
Within the Twin Flame community the concept of dark forces is rampant, both among healers and teachers as well as among Twin Flames on their individual journey. Anything that is seen as ‘undesirable’ is blamed on black magic, entities, the darkness and evil.
However a small jog down memory lane, quickly teaches us that believing in the above stems from previous times in which we were unable to logically explain an event and therefor explained it through evil.
A tenacious superstition that some people still cling to today…
This is what they believed in the middle ages for example:
That witches steal male genitalia and communicate with them as if they were pets. They put them in nests and feed them. This was stated in the infamous “Malleus Maleficarum”.
You might think ‘Wow! people in those times were crazy.’ But similar allegations of penis theft by black magic are still made in our more modern times in parts of Africa.
Today believing in penises disappearing or shrinking is known as Koro Syndrome, a delusional disorder in which an individual has an overpowering belief that one’s sex organs are retracting and will disappear, despite the lack of any true longstanding changes to the genitals.
It is no wonder that witches were blamed for this in the Middle Ages.
Is that example too weird for you? Here’s another one:
One prevalent superstition in medieval Britain was the fear that a child could be taken and replaced with a changeling. Today this is believed to have arisen out of a need to explain child illnesses that came on suddenly, or children that were born with deformities.
Some scholars have suggested that changelings may have been used as a way to explain autistic children, especially since the changes can come on quickly. When a child’s behavior and verbal skills rapidly declined or changed, it was blamed upon the doings of the changeling.
Changeling, in European folklore, a deformed or imbecilic offspring of fairies or elves substituted by them surreptitiously for a human infant. According to legend, the abducted human children are given to the devil or used to strengthen fairy stock. The return of the original child may be effected by making the changeling laugh or by torturing it; this latter belief was responsible for numerous cases of actual child abuse. They would set up test such as put a shoe in a bowl of soup, if the child laughed it meant it was a changeling and the child was no longer considered human or their own.
The existence of changelings is believed to stem from the idea that infants are susceptible to demonic possession. In the Medieval Chronicles, by Ralph of Coggeshall, and in other sources, the fairies are said expressly to prey upon unbaptized children.
If you would dive deeper into the history of evil, darkness, spells and black magic, you would see that the belief in evil and darkness was used to explain what went beyond comprehension for the people of that time and their understanding of life and how the Universe works.
Believing in witchcraft and dark forces is hardly something you want to associate yourself with because people, have done and still do the most insane things in the name of lifting curses and fighting witchcraft. Like marry an 18 year old girl off to a dog in India. Or the children being accused of witchcraft in Africa. If you think this only happens in third world countries today, think again also in Europe and other developed countries horrendous things happen because of the belief in dark forces, including infanticide because the parents believed their child was possessed by the devil.
Buying into the myth of dark forces & black magic
This past week I was reminded again how many people buy into the myth of dark forces, spells and psychic attacks. It’s a tenacious belief within people both inside and outside of the Twin Flame community; the belief in darkness, in evil and of course their own powerlessness to protect themselves against it.
Within the Twin Flame community people belief that the dark forces are obstructing unions between the Divine counterparts because they can’t stand the light the unions bring into the world. If the Twin Flame has an existing or new partner, it is often believed that she is binding him to her through black magic spells. If someone feels off or unwell, they believe they are under psychic attack and the list goes on. People believe they carry entities or are told so by psychics and if it isn’t an entity, it’s a curse or a spell that costs a lot of money to be removed. Which would be something else if this was really a thing, but that’s just it – believing in dark forces and black magic is just a bunch of superstitious hokus-pocus!
And although it’s very tempting to believe in dark interference and a battle between good and evil, there isn’t one except inside of you.
The belief in witchcraft, dark forces and voodoo come from a time where people were not developed enough to see cause and effect. This may sound harsh and of course not what you want to hear if you believe in dark forces, but believing in evil and darkness is VICTIM CONSCIOUSNESS at it’s best.
Not only are you a victim, your opponent is SUPERNATURAL so you are even more powerless than other victims because your opponent can always get you no matter where you are. You are never safe. Do you really want to be scaring the crap out of yourself, like that?
Anyone serious about their Spiritual journey knows that we have to transcend fear, in order to ascend into love and the unity of the 5th dimension. You can’t enter 5D firmly plugged into the fear-matrix. You also can’t take victim consciousness with you in 5D, it has to be checked at the door because it belongs to the old paradigm. You have to release yourself from both the grip of fear and the illusion of being victimized.
If you are clutching onto either or both, reading this will trigger you BIG time.
There can be only ONE (remember Highlander?)
The problem with believing in evil and dark forces is that it is the epitome of duality, which is caused by separation consciousness (our old 3D paradigm state of consciousness and state of being). Duality is based on two opposing powers the light vs. the dark, good vs. evil, God vs. the Devil.
On a soul level there is only ONE power, not two, there is only unity.
In the 1986 movie Highlander, the central theme was “There can be only one” in the fight of the immortals against each other. It implies that all immortals must fight and kill one another until only one remains standing; this “one” shall receive The Prize. The Prize was mortality and enlightenment, when Connor MacLeod wins the Prize, he screams out, “I know everything! I am everything!” He later tells Brenda Wyatt, “I can love and have children, live and grow old,” all previously unavailable to him because Immortals are sterile and cannot live anywhere for very long without raising suspicion.
Because there can be only one, at the end there will be only one. “If that one is good, the world will see a golden age. If evil, the world will fall into anarchy.” In Highlander II: The Quickening, Connor MacLeod has become mortal after the Gathering and uses his vast knowledge to help mankind to solve its environmental problems.
The Highlander movies showed us the “ultimate battle of good and evil” played out on the screen.
But this theme in itself is an old paradigm 3D concept, based of our inner subconscious conflict between our upper and lower chakras – the ego seeing itself separated from the soul.
Spiritually speaking there can be only ONE as well and believing in darkness and evil, fighting the good and the light is nothing but DUALITY thinking which does not become a truly spiritual person because he or she knows that duality is not the highest spiritual truth. If it were, why would we aspire ONENESS? On the highest level there can be only ONE power and that power has to be good, because if that one power was evil there would be no good to begin with. Seeing the nature of what we believe to be evil, it would have annihilated good ages ago.
Let’s just think this through here, if there can be only ONE power which opposing power would be a false reality? Good or evil. The only logical answer to that question is that EVIL is a false reality, it’s an illusion.
I teach and believe that EVERYTHING is always happening for our highest good, even the things that we would have rather not happen. If there were dark forces, then this would not be true because then things could work against you, to obstruct you and stop you from doing what you came here to do. However just like the examples above from the middle ages, we still use dark forces, entities, and evil to blame for the things we can’t comprehend.
For example past life wounding is one of those things that until we ‘remember’ our experiences from previous lifetimes, what we experience today can often seem very random and unfair. We don’t see the correlation between then and now and so pretty much like our brothers and sisters from the Middle Ages, we make up ‘reasons’ for why we fail or have bad luck in our lives.
We blame it on an outside foe, because we don’t see how we could have caused our current experience.
But as psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung already said:
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
Many of the things we ascribe to dark interference are merely a product of our own subconscious fears and false beliefs from this and previous lifetimes, playing out in our physical reality. You aren’t consciously aware of them because, they are outside of your conscious awareness (aka subconscious). So much like the people in the Middle Ages, you don’t SEE the link between your subconscious and your reality – but that doesn’t mean that it’s not there.
Shadow aspects and disowned parts of yourself
In fact much of the evil we project out into the world are shadow aspects and disowned parts of our self. Things we subconsciously know about ourselves but that are too painful to re-own. In the Akashic Record Clearings I offer to my clients, I help them see past what they believe to be dark interference and by doing so help them to re-own the aspects of themselves that were disowned in the past. Re-owning these lost and rejected parts of ourselves restores our sense of wholeness and true identity on a soul level. Especially because even the darkness we perceive in ourselves, is a misinterpretation of our past experience. As souls we are all innocent and good, whole and pure.
Another famous Carl Jung quote that fits in here is:
“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
The “shadow” is a concept coined by Carl Jung that describes those aspects of the personality that we choose to reject and repress. Through experiences from this lifetime and previous lifetimes, we all have parts of ourselves that we don’t like—or that we think society won’t like—so we push those parts down into our unconscious psyches. It is this collection of repressed aspects of our identity that Jung referred to as our shadow.
When we disown aspects of ourselves, we tend to attract people that will mirror them in our physical reality so that we are confronted with what we are running away from inside ourselves.
But my healer told me it was the dark forces….
It is sad, but many healers (luckily not all) are themselves still stuck in believing in this galactic battle between the darkness and the light. It’s also a pretty good indication of where they are in their own Spiritual journey and that is stuck in the old 3D paradigm and firmly plugged into its fear-grid. Or they use it as a spiritual ego trip to show you just how powerful they are, as they are spiritually strong enough (have attained so much inner light) that they can command and conquer the darkness. This is of course nothing but a MASSIVE power-trip, that really is all about them and doesn’t actually serve you.
This is what a client of mine recently was told by a healer who believes in dark forces:
A client of mine was dreaming incessantly about her twin and his new partner, which according to the healer was because of entities. Which is one way of looking at it, however a much more plausible reason why she is dreaming about her twin and his girlfriend is because in dream-space the subconscious mind is able to work through things that the conscious mind, is not able to comprehend (read accept) while awake.
I would say that my client is having difficulty accepting the fact that her twin is with someone else and recently fathered a child, that she only found out about after the baby was born. This is of course a bitter pill to swallow, which would explain why it is spilling over into her dreams.
There is NO scientific evidence to back up the theory of entities, but there is of course plenty of scientific research that links the subconscious mind to our dreams. There is of course also no scientific evidence of God, because there really isn’t any scientific evidence of the supernatural period, good or bad. But again I will ask you why would you want to believe in something that makes no sense and doesn’t serve you?
In the example of the entities, how does this help my client? In that interpretation, she is a victim of an outside force plaguing her in a way that she is defenseless to. What can she do to get rid of these entities? Some hokey ritual? Burn sage? Say an incantation? Get outside help in shielding her from her evil predators?
I love me good woo-woo, but this kind of woo-woo serves no one.
Let’s look at my interpretation of her dreams, to me they indicate that she is having difficulty accepting her reality. But at the same time it is a reality that she has NO control over, there is only ONE option and that is to accept it. Realizing that the dreams are an indication of her own difficulty to accept this painful reality, gives her the key to solving this issue and that is to consciously work on accepting her reality, painful as it may be.
Bringing in darkness and entities is nothing but a lot of smoke and mirrors that keeps the client from truly facing, what needs to be faced. It doesn’t bring her any closer to the real solution of her problem and only brings her further away from dealing with the immense pain that this development on her Twin Flame journey has triggered within her. But that’s why it happened in the first place, that her Twin Flame is with someone else and just had a child in that relationship, because she had deep deep wounds around motherhood that could only be released this way.
It was of course very painful to go through, but she was already carrying this pain subconsciously inside of her from a previous traumatic past life experience. Her Twin Flame was merely helping her release this, which is maybe not the romance she had hoped for but it definitely served her highest good.
It’s so easy to loose sight of what the Twin Flame journey is really about, this fast-track to Ascension and not just your romantic dreams come true (please download the free Inner Union Soul Alchemy manuscript to learn more). I feel that many of the people blaming outside interference, simply don’t really understand that the Twin Flame connection is meant to be so much more than a physical romantic relationship. It’s then when romance becomes out of reach or seems lost forever, that they grab to explanations such as dark intervention that is keeping the couple romantically separated – when in fact these obstacles and detours are modern-day initiations on our Ascension path. These initiations are meant to help us release all previous karma that is keeping us bound to the cycle of death and rebirth.
Are you giving your power away?
One of the biggest issues though in believing in evil and the dark forces is that, it inherently means you are giving away your power. Because if you are the victim of psychic attacks, black magic, entities, voodoo, darkness and evil, you believe that there is a greater power than your own power – out to harm you.
Spiritually this defies that you are the Divine in embodiment, or the Universe experiencing itself.
Believing that there is a greater power that can subdue you, is only possible if you believe you are your ego and your current life persona, but that is not who you truly are. On the highest level you are a soul and created in the image of your maker, you are unlimited and the ultimate power in the Universe because you are made of the same substance as the Divine.
Plus, evil and darkness is a man-made concept especially used by religion and other groups with ulterior motives in order to create fear and gain control over the masses. For example religion used demonization to get rid of older long standing belief systems, such as paganism and other religions that believed in multiple gods. Instilling fear in the people’s hearts for punishment and the fiery pits of hell, made them willing to walk the ‘right’ path (the one they were told to walk) and seek salvation. But of course faith out of fear, is not real faith – it’s conformity.
Let me give you another fun example of how the fear of evil was used to gain control:
Did you know that women used to brew beer, before they were forced out of business by malicious campaigns against them claiming they were witches? In fact our whole mental image of a witch including pointy hats, a broom stick, cats and so on are based on what Ale wives wore and how they advertised their products. Which means that even the witches that we were taught to believe in, were in reality self-sufficient entrepreneurs villified by men, in a hostile take-over of their industry. They had no special magical powers, instead they carried the knowledge of how to brew beer with special herbs to support health.
Read this article here for the full story on this piece of history; https://bigthink.com/scotty-hendricks/the-dark-history-of-women-witches-and-beer
In fact it was a woman, mystic and Abbess Hildegard von Bingen who is considered one of the earliest sources to write about the preservative qualities of hop. About 1150, Abbess Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), mystical philosopher and healer, published a book called Physica Sacra, which translates best as “The Natural World”. Book I, Chapter 61, “De Hoppho”, or “Concerning the hop”, says of the plant:
“It is warm and dry, and has a moderate moisture, and is not very useful in benefiting man, because it makes melancholy grow in man and makes the soul of man sad, and weighs down his inner organs. But yet as a result of its own bitterness it keeps some putrefactions from drinks, to which it may be added, so that they may last so much longer.”
In Physica, Hildegard described the preservative qualities of hops when added to a beverage like beer. In the same book, she also mentioned that hop increases melancholy or “back bile,” one of Hippocrates’ “four humors” of physiology; the others are man’s choleric, phlegmatic, and sanguine dispositions. This insight made Hildegard a progressive in her time, given that her contemporaries recommended hops as a treatment for exactly the opposite affliction, depression.
As Abess, Hildegard von Bingen had a higher status and more power than most other women who had a subordinate status in medieval society, simply because they were born female.
Through this malicious smear campaign, any woman with knowledge of brewing and herbs was in danger of being called a witch. This was a catch 22 because to be able to brew, you had to have knowledge of plants and herbs. Gruit, the predecessor to hop based beer was made only of plants, herbs and spices. Women out of fear for their own lives and to protect their families, stopped producing ale, which opened the way for men to monopolize the beer business.
With so much evil (caused by man) that has come from BELIEVING in supernatural evil, is this really something that you still want to believe in?!
If you really want to know what is messing up your life and your Twin Flame journey, go take a look in your subconscious mind and past life memories. Digging those up, will give you the information you need to make sense of what is happening in your HERE an NOW. In the Akashic Record Clearings I offer, we can also revisit previous lifetime experiences that have you subconsciously believing in darkness and evil.
