Changing our Childish Negative Beliefs in order to become Spiritual Adults
The dualistic nature of our existence here on Earth implies experiences of both happiness and unhappiness, health and dis-ease, love and fear. Throughout the lifetimes we choose to play on one side of the spectrum, then the other, sometimes both together. When we are ready to become spiritual adults, we finally choose the middle path – the path of harmony.
By the means of taking full responsibility for every experience we have, and understanding how our perceptions (beliefs, thoughts, emotions) create our reality, we generate the attitude of Self-empowerment, and through it really create our reality.
Perception is a learned skill. That skill is heavily influenced by our genetics, upbringing, and current and past life experiences. All of these are imprinted upon the body’s cellular memory. These cellular imprints attract to us the same circumstances over and over, and can be the cause of dis-ease in the body or mind, until we deal with them. Through unconscious habitual repetition we “carve a groove” in our neuro-circuitry, inculcating automated conditioned biochemical responses to be triggered by particular circumstances and people.
All events trigger an emotional response, either positive or negative, according to our perception of that event. The point of self-mastery lies in being able to notice the emotional reaction we are having,trace it back through the thoughts to the belief (concept) that created it, and change that belief.
You might ask “how do I change the belief/concept once I recognize it?” This takes some inner knowing of your own system, and definitely some effort. We change our beliefs by resolving the past disharmonious assumptions – the unlearned lessons which created the disharmonious beliefs. We do this by dealing directly with the past trauma and harmonizing the concept itself – learning what was unlearned, finishing what was not finished.
Dealing directly with the past trauma requires knowledge of Self. Knowledge of Self is gained through internal investigation. The more we know about our inner world, the easier it becomes to trace the origins of any belief. These origins almost always thread from other lives, but there are also many circumstances of the current life that have activated these past karmic issues in our cellular memory. The key here, again, is perception. These unresolved karmic issues were originally created by our misunderstandings of a lesson due to a limited perception at that time. But now we are different beings than we were back then, thus our perceptional range is also different. This means that examining circumstances that led to a particular belief in the past, will now with this new expanded perspective, lead to a different conclusion, which in turn affects the thoughts and emotions, and the cellular body in a different way.
Most of the time we can trace the emotional reaction to an issue that we can then further delineate back to a particular episode in life that cemented that conclusion into our bodies. For example, someone who is experiencing intense feelings of unworthiness and insignificance in a current moment due to a particular trigger might be able to trace it back to the time of his parents’ divorce and the pain experienced during it. The incorrect conclusion was “If I was good enough, then mommy/daddy would not have left us!” The child took this experience as his fault. If this was not noticed by the adults around him, he grew stronger in his conviction until it became a full belief. From that point on this child would keep attracting to himself triggers for his insignificance because his Soul would want him to learn, to clean up this misconception. By simply looking back at the event itself (in this case, a traumatic divorce) through the eyes of the adult, and consciously linking these two experiences (feeling not-good-enough and parents’ divorce), this person can release the pain or guilt, that generated the belief in the first place. Information can be very useful in these situations – knowing about the real reasons for the divorce of his parents, which might have been hidden from the child, can help a lot.
Sometimes we are not able to trace the current issue to anything literal in our past. For example, someone who is afraid to be alone in life, and yet is happily married, and in her memory she has always been surrounded by a large family that loved her, or a nice circle of friends. Yet the fear persists. This person can trace the feeling of fear throughout her life, but with no material circumstance to attach it to. This means it is a karmic issue from another lifetime (they all are, but some have very obvious triggers in this life, others do not). To help release this trauma, this person must tune into the feeling itself and let it be the guide to the constructed “story”/belief. What is the emotion behind the fear? What are the facets of this fear: loneliness, danger, insecurity? By examining these facets a path to the belief is created, and this belief might then be challenged with the current perceptional view. What does it mean to be lonely? Why is it scary? If everyone disappears, who will she be as an individual? Facing these questions will also lead to the release of the karmic overlay and changes in the root belief. The use of meditation (sitting in the Great Silence of Self), consulting professionals in the fields of energy work, healing, breath-work, hypnosis, past life regression, and other modalities can be helpful.
Everything existing in our lives – circumstances and people who trigger us into positive or negative emotional responses – all have been attracted to us by the type of energies (belief/thought/emotion) that we have emitted over lifetimes. Our entire being is a broadcast mechanism. Our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies all put out frequencies – these transmissions are then reflected back to us. These frequencies become trapped in biofeedback loops until we resolve the imbalanced emission issue.
Dealing with the karmic and current reactory issues takes us into Spiritual Adulthood.
Spiritual “children” expect to be taken care of and blame the parent if they experience pain. Spiritual “adults” know that all pain is self-created.

About the Author ~
I have always felt myself to be “on a mission” of enlightment – for myself, others, and the planet. My clairvoyant abilities allow me to have an intimate relationship with Earth, the Galaxy, and the Universe, which have never felt far away to me. Being able to perceive the multidimensionality of universal energy, I live in a perpetual experience of Source’s Light/Code in every moment, parallel to regular life’s circumstances, thoughts and feelings. The holographic nature of our reality was apparent to me from birth, and the exploration of that hologram became my life’s work.
I have studied science, history, archaeology and astronomy in Russia and in the U.S. and have a BFA degree from the Art Institute of Boston. I am an autodidact in anatomy and biology, nuclear physics, archaeology, ancient history and mythology, metaphysics and Theosophy. I now live in Maine with my husband, and have a company called Pravda, Inc. (which means “truth” in Russian). For over twenty years now, using my ability to see and read energy, I help people figure out solutions to many life’s challenges through my books, seminars, and private sessions.
