Working with thousands of people to empower their lives by getting to the root of why they feel disempowered, I've discovered one always accurate common denominator: Subconscious guilt.
If you bring reincarnation into the mix, you're dragging an overflowing suitcase packed with guilt from lifetime to lifetime as well. Nope, no tabula rasa (clean slate).
Admittedly a bit overwhelming, yes?
How Guilt Works
Even though you’ve evolved somewhat from your cave people predecessors, there’s still a dominant part of your consciousness that functions in primitive, fear-based, ways. Your "Fear-Based Consciousness" has one job: Make sure you survive. No matter what.
So, whenever fear gets triggered, this instinctive, fight/flight mechanism kicks in, having you do whatever it takes to protect yourself.
It then justifies that choice: “I had to hit him with a dinosaur bone, he stole some of my fire!”
Here's the problem: Who you really are is a Higher Consciousness, functioning-from-love, spirit in a body. That you knows there's always a loving choice and constantly tries to guide you there.
But, since you chose to not listen to that wise, loving aspect and reacted from fear, you made negative decisions about yourself. Things such as: “I caused pain and loss so I’m bad, dangerous, untrustworthy and unlovable. I sure don't deserve power in my life.”
That slew of negative thoughts becomes the inner programming of your personal Operating System, running (and perhaps ruining) your life.
Then, your handy dandy primitive survival mechanism kicks in once again. It convinces that the best thing to do is just “forget” what you did, stuff it into the closet of your subconscious mind, hoping guilt will just *poof* vanish.
Your job is to take on various acts, pretend to be the opposite of whatever you did so no one will discover all that hidden guilt. You slam the door tight on the closet to prevent others from seeing what a mess it is.
In the future, the hitting with a dinosaur bone person does this: "Since I chose fear rather than love and decided I’m not trustworthy, I now overcompensate and act super dependable. I've chosen a career that demands uncompromising responsibility, but every day I'm terrified that others will discover all the guilt I'm hiding and bust me!"
Higher Consciousness OS
This scenario is one gnarly dichotomy in the two parts of your consciousness.
Your Higher Consciousness, whose Life Mission is to be Love, desperately wants to clean up and resolve what you've done and then suppressed. It helps you do that by attracting similar, triggering situations to help you remember and make loving choices.
Like the person above finding themselves surrounded by untrustworthy employees who drive them absolutely nuts. Rather than seeing their situation as a wake-up call, they angrily blame all those "untrustworthy" employees, convinced they should just fire them all.
Cause an Effect
Simply speaking, all of this is the Universal Law of Cause and Effect in action. There’s no effect without a prior cause. What you did is the cause that you forgot about; others and life are the effect. I refer to this as mirroring.
Your Fear-Based Consciousness is terrified to have you remember what you did that started the cycle. But, with some inner delving, eventually it calms down enough to let you peek into that overstuffed closet of guilt.
Once you open that door, it becomes a fascinating adventure, with added benefits of personal evolution and self-empowerment. Plus, you have endless options to clean things up you weren't even aware of.
As your Higher Consciousness comes to the forefront, you'll be able to see that there are always loving choices to be made in any situation. Even fire being stolen.
Being that change can and will change the world.
