First a note on demons. I do not believe in demons in the form of the dude wearing a red morph suit sporting horns and holding a pitchfork. I do not believe in external embodied entities whose job is to wreak havoc on our lives. Instead, I think of demons as human-made. Demons are something we have created in our minds made up out of our fears. That being said, these demons can become part of our collective fear and something that can be seen, named, and therefore conquered. Conquering our demons is dependent on our ability to see them and name them. Once we have done this, we can use the tools we have been given to “conquer” these demons so that they no longer have power over us. These are the demons who presented themselves to me this morning as I did my invisible work of diving deep into society’s ills to uncover the demons that are driving our current (mass hysteria) behaviors. Let’s name and claim these demons together so that we might deprive them of their power over us and move more closely to a place of peace and contentment within the chaos that is currently ruling our world.
Speaking of chaos, this is the first demon to present themselves during my morning meditation. Chaos presented itself to me as a rampantly tumbling ball made up of flailing limbs – arms and legs flailing and tumbling around the world wreaking havoc wherever it flailed. Chaos was screeching and screaming as it blindly flailed about. Chaos seemed not to have a face and was difficult to approach because of the force of its flailing. Stepping closer to it, I felt the force of its flailing and within that the unbridled fear that drove it. I also felt within it an insidious plan and was within the depths of chaos those who benefit from a world chaotically thrashing about. I asked Chaos to show me its face and what appeared was a face similar to Lord Voldemort as he hid in Professor Quirrell’s turban or the shriveled Voldemort who was thrown naked into the cauldron ready to be reborn into his true power and form.
Confusion was the second demon to appear. He came in the form of a man who simply stood in place. His body had become paralyzed and he could not move, but his head was uncontrollably and frantically being thrown about in all directions. The image I saw was reminiscent of the scenes in horror movies where a demon is transforming from their cloaked human form into something horrifying. Coming forth out of his mouth was a sort of incomprehensible babbling. CUE Jacob’s Ladder
I didn’t need to look to hard to find Panic. Panic was in the mass of humanity running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Triggered by fear and mass hysteria, they were running here and there grabbing up everything they could carry that they believed might save them from ……what? Death? Illness? Feeling alone? Fear? It was a mass of people without the tools needed to gather verifiable information, reason carefully and therefore come up with a reasonable response to that information. Instead, fear alone was driving their actions – unbridled and in this case unnecessary fear. CUE WWZ
After Naming the Demons
After we have effectively named the demon, our next task is to conquer them. In this case, we need a new understanding of what it means to conquer. In my world, fear begets fear and violence begets violence. We are not meant to “destroy” the demon with violence (what we resist will persist). Instead, we are invited to draw close enough to the demon to see the fear that is driving it. Then, we heal it at its fear. Once we heal its fear, the demon can return to its true form which is peacefulness, reason and love.
As a shadow and depth worker, I have been working on the collective fear. I have been sitting with the demons, holding them in loving compassion and witnessing to their release. All they really want is to be loved. And when we love these “demons” the fear that drives them simply melts off them revealing the love that dwells beneath all that fear. In order to do this work, however, I first had to heal these demons within myself. The same will be true for you. If you find yourself drawn into the Chaos, paralyzed by Confusion or driven by Panic, you will first have to heal these demons within yourself. Once you have done this you can begin to use your gifts to heal the demons of the collective.
Healing Your Own Demons
Healing our own demons is the work of a lifetime. I have spent the past 30 years doing this for myself and out of this doing, I have discovered, developed and practiced effective tools for healing and transcending the fears inside of me that have limited my life. Being free of these fears is an ongoing practice and something I work with every single day! In life we are never completely free of fear, but with the proper tools, we can eliminate fear’s control over our lives. The Authentic Freedom protocol is absolutely THE BEST tool I have been given for the healing of fears. You can learn the Authentic Freedom protocol and how to apply it through my online course or my book by the same name. I also offer one-on-one support if that would better serve you. Learn more HERE.
