Recognising The Enemy Within
Our biggest enemy in life doesn’t have a physical body or arms and legs.
It has no weapons of a physical nature. But it is able to sit calmly dictating our future, if we let it.
Elizabeth was fantastic at her job, she worked hard for those who employed her and loved her work. She approached everything she did with complete efficiency and a huge sense of purpose, often working late, which she didn’t mind because she enjoyed what she was doing.
Elizabeth wanted though to include some different layers to her work. Her hobby was making jewellery she wanted to make this part of her working world. When she came to me she wanted to know if making and selling jewellery was going to work for her. She wanted to sell her wares at weekend country markets and other venues.
When I looked into the energy I felt it was a brilliant idea for her. She wouldn’t have wanted to do it full-time because she enjoyed her day job so much but it would give her the creative output she craved and a sense of joy selling the pieces that she’d made. I told her how great an idea it would be for her to pursue this.
I heard from Elizabeth about three months after her session. She couldn’t concentrate at work, she had started to make quite big mistakes and had become completely distracted to the point her work colleagues were beginning to notice and reprimand her for the decline in the quality of her work.
She didn’t know what had happened to her. The first question I asked was about how the jewellery business was going. Had she started to put some plans into action and get going? She told me how that had completely been put to one side. Why? I asked.
She protested she didn’t have the confidence to set-up her own small business. When I had said it would a brilliant idea for her, it triggered the button of self-destruction. The confidence issue hadn’t only snuffed out her business dreams but was beginning to deeply affect her day job. That sneaky voice inside started to say “Sabotage yourself” and “You can’t have it all.” Elizabeth though, was oblivious to the internal unconscious dialogue.
The enemy within resides unchallenged in the majority of us. We accept it as given that we should respond to the array of emotions bopping about in the psyche. As we become more ‘sensitive’ to the energies around us, the enemy within becomes more subtle and distant. What we are able to see as glaringly obvious in other people becomes less exposed in our own psyche. This is why a lot of Intuitive Sensitives find people in their lives with a over developed sense of drama. This is to show us in a very expressive way the areas in our own psyche that need attention and discipline.
I recently attended Cesar Millan, The Dog Whisperer tour. This is a little Mexican man who has complete control and discipline over the way he handles dogs. In a stadium full of people he explained the key areas of how to handle your dog and the mistakes most owners make.
There were howls of laughter as he mimed the relationship most people have with their dog. Within this sketch he showed quite clearly how to change the situation to very quickly gain amazing results for both the human and the dog.
How many people in that stadium will actually apply the methods? Very few. They will go home and do what they’ve always done, making the same mistakes over and over again. The question remains, why do people do this?
Fear of change and fear of failure
As we develop our senses and become more conscious we have no choice but to overcome the fear of change and failure. You will find someone is currently in your life, or will come into your life who will push you to grow. The true Intuitive Sensitive recognises these people, and situations as opportunities for growth rather than awful challenges. When such situations are recognised as growth opportunities and embraced as such, the enemy within becomes quiet and settled.
When your mind is disciplined, even if you are surrounded by hostility, your peace of mind will hardly be disturbed. If it is disturbed, it will only be for short periods of time rather than long drawn out angers towards the self or others. This is because a disciplined mind lets go of its attachments very willingly and easily. An undisciplined mind will try to keep the hostility and hurt going for as long as possible, seeking to punish at every opportunity.
At Peace With Your Enemy
This is a simple exercise to detect your inner enemy and begin to build a knowledge of its existence if you wish to do something about it. Many people are aware of their inner enemy but act passively towards it and ‘give in’ to its influence.
Think of a situation past or present that has made you angry. Rather than go into the space, think of how to observe this energy. As you observe, what is your part to play within the scenario? What part of it is your responsibility? What is the other person or situation reflecting to you?
Usually the responsibility falls somewhere within your communication skills. Where have you not been clearly communicating with yourself or others? This energy is often very subtle so be patient for the response. Once you have the response allow yourself to observe until you receive an ‘aha’ moment. If struggling, then discuss it with a friend and observe their behaviours. Do they express your own judgements?
When the energy has finished the feeling of neutrality will emerge followed by a knowledge as to why a person behaves as they do. It doesn’t mean you have to accept their behaviour, it simply means you understand it enough to release the internal attachment, therefore flushing out the enemy within. As we do this it opens us up to new and forever deepening levels of our psychic senses.
