Understanding the dark without aligning with it can be a bit tricky but can be done. The necessity to understanding the dark is to be able to discern what is and what is not when faced with it. Recently, there have been violence on many levels in the world from the unexpected to the continuance of wars to the suppression of ideas. To react in a non-dark manner takes some understanding.
Dark energy is promoted through the magnetization of the energy itself. Dark energy implodes from within to without, gathering with it all that it can attract. This magnetization can be caused by fear, promotion of fear, uncertainty, a feeling of hopelessness, a sense of betrayal or hypocrisy. The paradox is that in searching for the truth in any given situation one may be faced with acknowledging that the truth is quite dark. The response to that acknowledgement can do one of two things- add to the darkness or shift towards the light.
Energy rides in waves as it collects. Fear responses or anger can ride a wave that gathers strength and collects more negative energy. This wave grows in strength and because it grows in strength it can result in a physical manifestation. These are like tides that carry that when hit landfall can wash ashore a manifestation of large proportion.
Those who are aligning themselves with fear, anger, resentment, loathing, deception, confusion, bias or hatred can easily be swept into the tides and allow themselves to feel a justification for their negative actions, however that justification is provided by the negative tide to allow more negative to happen. Negativity will seek delusion to perpetuate itself. This energy like attracts like is well known by those who understand the law of attraction yet can be repeated so that the form of this attraction is explored. Because these waves of energy flow through our higher consicousness those like myself and others who are open to intuitive messages will pick up on those energies - something is about to happen type of feeling or even more specific as in a dream I had about a shooter. Sometimes those who sense the energy nothing manifests and if they had shared the sensation with others may be considered "off" or inaccurate, but what has happened is that a wave of light energy has interrupted or slowed or even diminished the negative flow.
As we are in the process of ascension the dimensions are merging, more and more people are becoming open to these energy waves. But, their minds may not open to what these energy waves may be since they are blocked from their skepticism, religion, or nonbelief, that still does not make them immune to the energy wave. They will sense the negative energy and try to attribute a cause or blame which then adds to the energy wave. They don't know why they are angry so they must be angry because of this _________(they will fill in the gap because the mind wants an answer.)
Some of these energy waves are being supported while others are being diminished. In order to not support a negative energy wave and have it affect you personally it is helpful to:
Look at whatever conflicts are in your life and either do not give them attention, do not add to their energy, resolve if you can, if you can not then let it go and send it light. The response to any conflict whether it is a conversation,someone cutting you off driving or an unfair parking ticket for example, the response will create more negative energy if that response is negative. Boundaries of discernment are a way of aligning because it is an acknowledgement of a non-participation in aiding the dark. No one will not be a doormat but the heightened awareness and responsibility for your responses to any conflict will go far in either creating more conflict or diffusing conflict.
The dark does not like the light and will shrink from it so if you are battling to win something right, arguing for peace, waging a war against something dark, or debating how the light switch works you are adding to the dark. Conflict begets more conflict. Without conflict the dark will shrink, diffuse or diminish.
As these times grow more energetically unstable it is helpful to know that there is the power of light within you and it is as empowering as your choices in how you respond, whether that is small or large events.
As you become more sensitized to the energy waves you will be able to diminish whatever is around you through you being in the light and choosing light filled responses. This takes practice to not give into fear or anxiety that others hold and they will want to convince you too to be afraid of what is or will be happening but when one is aligned with spirit there is no fear. If you have a momentarily lapse where you feel fear just don't take residence there.
We are merging into more energy beings and in doing so an enhanced awareness of what can affect us in the nonphysical will allow this transition to happen with greater ease.
Love and light always!
