The light is increasing in our world, but with it, the resistance to change is also increasing. And the “mastermind” behind so much of the negativity that surrounds us on all sides is none other than our own mind. Remember, the mind has been programmed to keep us down by keeping us from finding our true strength. And just like the man who refuses to be rescued from the flood (see my comment on The manuscript part 209), the mind will try to keep us from “rescuing” ourselves in any way it can. Because the mind knows that if you do succeed in freeing yourself by connecting with your spirit, it will no longer be able to control you. So, it will prefer to pull you deeper and deeper under an ever increasing flood of negativity. I see signs of this “battle of wills” as The CC’s called it in my own life, in people around me and in some of the comments posted here. For the mind always uses the same weapons to try to make us lose focus, because it knows that if it can trigger our anger, fear or any other negative thoughts, it can succeed in holding us back a little bit more from liberating ourselves from its dictatorship.

We all want change, we all want to see the world we dream about become reality. But our minds fear that change, because with it comes their defeat. And so it will fight us every step of the way, to quote from The manuscript. And now, when we are all becoming more than a little “battle weary”, the mind has found a way to get in a nasty attack here and there. And if we are not careful, it is too easy to fall into the trap our minds are so busy setting up. Because when the mind manages to make us lose our focus and disconnect from Source, we start attacking ourselves and we start attacking others. We become irritated and angry, and we start to believe in the negativity our minds keep feeding us. And so, we start to give away our powers yet again, and the spiral of negativity gets a chance to drag us further down.

It is easy to lose patience because of this, with ourselves and with this whole process. And so, it is easy to start spreading the negativity we feel we are drowning in. And some of that negativity has started to appear in this space as well. I started this blog to give us all a place where we can support each other. This journey is more than challenging, we all know that, but we must make sure that we do not make it even more challenging by letting our minds trick us into bringing that negativity in here as well. So if your mind manages to trigger you in any way, please refrain from sharing it with the rest of us. It will not only affect you, but all others that see it as well. I want to keep this blog the way it was intended from the start, as a place filled with love and respect, where the only energy we freely share is the energy of love. So take this as a warning that I will not tolerate any more mudslinging here. So, if in doubt, please check with your heart where the words you want to share are coming from. I want us all to be able to find the support we need here, and even if we do disagree with someone, it must be done in a respectful way.

We are so close now, so please do not let us make this journey any longer than it needs to be by letting the mind back into the driver’s seat. Because if we do, we will end up back in the place where we started from. I know that many of you are exhausted from what you feel is an uphill struggle without any sign of the changes you so long for. But I also know that there are many others out there like me who already see some of these changes happening. But remember, your mind will never allow you to experience those changes, so the only way to make them come into your life, is to let your heart take control. And what your heart wants for you is what the whole Universe wants for you: a life filled with joy and love.

Love and light, Aisha
