Last night, I attended Kenny Peake’s Integral Consciousness class. After class, Cora asked a couple of us how we knew we wouldn’t encounter something evil in our search for spirituality. Actually, she was addressing my friend but he said he worried about this sometimes, as well, and he walked away. So, I butted in and told Cora that I would like to share my perspective with her. Fortunately, she told me that she found my intrusive perspective encouraging, so I’ve decided to share my thoughts with the readers of this blog, as well.
Cora, I don’t believe that anyone or anything is inherently evil. I believe that the energies of pure love and light are the most powerful forces in the universe and, with those energies, the things we perceive as evil can be transformed into something beautiful. I believe that, as long as our intention is set upon spreading love and light, we will do no harm to ourselves or to others. On the rare occasion in which I have sensed a malevolent energy/entity, I have either projected energy towards that being or I’ve asked for protection and the unwanted energy seemed to dissipate.
The one time I projected energy towards what I sensed as a malevolent entity, I was holding and consoling my dog as he was just beginning to have a seizure. I felt what I perceived, at the time, as an evil entity hovering above us. In my determination to protect my dog, I asked for protection and allowed my energy to shoot out through the top of my head towards the unwanted energy or entity. I felt the heavy and negative energy disappear and Taz recovered without going into a full blown seizure. Mind you, this happened at least five years ago. I no longer believe there exist entities that are inherently evil, only entities that are vibrating at a lower level and need a loving energy to lift them to a higher state.
I seldom encounter any ominous energies. In fact, I can only remember experiencing this a couple of times. Most recently, while in meditation, I saw the shadowy image of a dragon-like creature. I didn’t know that it was malevolent and I really wasn’t frightened, but a little fear of the unknown prompted me to ask for protection, just in case. Then, I continued to project the energies of love and peace. I had a sense that I had connected with angels during this meditation and it was their help I requested when I asked for protection. To my utter amazement, I saw the shadowy entity transformed into a beautiful creature of light just before it disappeared. I laughed gleefully as I thanked the angels, asking if I had really seen what I thought I had just seen.
Were these experiences simply the musings of an overactive imagination. Perhaps. But, all I can do is share my experiences and hope that, in doing so, they might help someone in their moment of need.
As I thought of Cora this morning, it seems a few additional thoughts were divinely sent to my mind. Cora, in your pursuit of spiritual enlightenment, walk away from anything that makes you feel anxious, gives you a queasy feeling in your stomach, tightens your jaw, or causes any other uncomfortable sensations in your body. I would pursue the things that invoke a sense of peace, tranquility, or relaxation. If you ever do encounter something you perceive as evil, immediately ask for protection and KNOW, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you have received that protection.
Cora, I hope these thoughts bring you peace and encouragement and I wish you safe and glorious journeys in your search for ultimate spirituality.
