"Determination ~ The persistence of evil is a factor in human affairs; just when you think it has been eradicated, it will pop up again, sprouting through some crack in the pavement of decent society. Evil need not take extravagant forms, such as those exhibited in Nazi Germany. Garden-variety lies and deceit are more common and persistent, but should be rooted out just as diligently. One must be determined against negativity - whether in one’s social or professional life, or in one’s own soul. In either case, certain rules must be followed for the efforts to succeed." ~ I Ching
My previous blog is a variation on a poem I wrote, about my own experience but also being aware of the many star seeds / light warriors / spiritual warriors / light workers who have had very similar experiences. I simply changed "I" to "you", and it immediately became a sort of a 'recruitment outline' for the type of people I want to invite into the Spiritual Protection and Psychic Self Defense Training program.
That piece of writing was addressed to the type of spiritual warriors who go to the darkest places in the psychi of humanity, and face that darkness head on, in order to bring light into it. These are usually star seeds who want to facilitate the greatest transformation possible, within themselves and for the planet, in as short amount of time possible, so they can leave sooner and be back to their galactic business. As a result, they often incarnate into very dark pockets of society, that may involve being born in situations which challenge them spiritually, mentally, morally, physically, and in all other ways, a great deal, such as into satanic cults, situations of domestic violence and abuse, addictions, criminality, serious illness, and other forms of chronic entrapment by or entanglement with darkness.
Many people get at least several chances in their lives to experience extreme levels of darkness, inside themselves, outside in the manifested world, or both. Its just that typically, they are not doing it consciously, and they strive only to get out, or lament the situation, without seeing it symbolically, or seeing its deeper meaning. Typically they see it as a disaster. They may not see the gift right away, and it may take years for them to learn the lessons that came with those experiences.
I think the statistic is that street fights usually last about 1-2 mins on average. If people are trained and are a match, then even less. But the damage from those few minutes can influence a person’s thinking and behavior for years or a lifetime, due to physical injuries or post traumatic stress symptoms.
On the etheric/ subtle / spiritual planes, it is somewhat like that as well. When you are in situations where you are facing dark forces head on, you may have to deal with extremely intense but short periods of intimate confrontation or ‘heavy combat’, dispersed in between relatively long periods of normal daily activity.
Its unhealthy to live, or experience too often, the level of stress that is experienced during big confrontations with the dark forces. No one can sustain that level of intensity for long periods of time. Too much of that is destructive, and becomes toxic to yourself. But avoiding it altogether, is equally as destructive and toxic. Its also disempowering. People who don’t acknowledge the presence of the dark forces in our world, are either brainwashed, ignorant, in denial, have a sinister agenda to fool and disempower you, or are doing so to mask their fear and feelings of helplessness, in dealing with it.
It is very important to be trained, practiced and prepared for an attack by the dark forces, which can come at any time, from any direction. It doesn’t mean to live in fear. Quite the opposite. If you are prepared and trained to deal with it intelligently, you’ll have much less fear. If you feel unprepared, helpless, you’ll have fear, and understandably so. Its just like before an exam; if you studied the entire semester, did your homework and then studied well before the exam, you’ll go into it confidently, because you know you are prepared and know the material. If you skipped class, didn’t do your homework, and didn’t study for the exam, you might feel scared to fail, and its only logical that you’d feel that way.
In cases of growing up with chronic entrapment by or entanglement with darkness, the periods between the intense confrontations, are usually filled with equally intense feelings of dread, depression, terror, confusion, and/or numbness.
The damage from the chronic situations, later in life can lead to CPTSD (Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), severe anxiety or depression, CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome), auto-immune disorders, panic attacks, problems with memory, and a slew of other difficult to treat chronic symptoms. Mainstream medicine typically does not look for the root of these symptoms, and offers numbing and apathy producing drugs, to mask or manage the symptoms. Ultimately this is very destructive.
All of those chronic health conditions sap your vitality on a daily basis; they literally vampirize your life force energy, and therefore make it difficult to deal with stress or overcome dark forces in those intense confrontations, when you have a critical need for large reserves of energy. So its imperative to heal the underlying spiritual and emotional wounding, beneath the symptoms. Doing so, frees up a lot of creative life force energy so you can tackle any challenge and overcome any obstacle.
There are many methods for healing traumas and wounding. And some modalities which work for some people amazingly well, may not work for someone else at all. People may be wired differently, and have different belief systems. A person’s faith and belief in a particular modality definitely increases its effectiveness.
“All War is based on deception” ~ Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Meditation however is a critical aspect of all spiritual development and healing paths. For a person confronting the dark forces on a regular basis, meditation as peace training, brings a person’s energies into focus, so you can think clearly, and not be distracted by all of the deceptions, illusions, and terrorization that the dark forces want to inflict on you, which are meant to throw you off balance, lose your focus, make you feel afraid and powerless.
I recommend that everyone does some sort of meditation every day. It could be a sitting down meditation or an active/ movement meditation. 15 mins of meditation a day can dramatically improve your ability to focus, release stress and anxiety, prevent fatigue, etc. If you can sit on the ground or stand on the ground barefoot, while you meditate, the grounding effects can do miracles for your overall health and vitality. Meditation can help you raise, charge up and store your energy, so that when you need to exert yourself, you have large reserves of energy to draw upon. And meditation can also help you recuperate, after an intense experience. When you cultivate deep inner peace inside yourself, on a regular basis, you will be much better prepared to face difficult challenges.
I am not some sort of a guru expert meditator, who can sit for 4 hrs without having a single thought. I must practice my art daily to keep improving. Meditation is a kind of thing you have to practice a lot, perhaps for many life times, to master. And like many of you, I face real life challenges daily, to sustain a daily meditation practice. Life has a way of happening and it doesn't pause for you to catch up. But the good thing is you do not have to be a perfect meditator to reap the immense rewards of the practice. You only have to practice consistently, and give it your best every time. No judgement. Just practice, practice, practice. Learn from your mistakes and move on.

The Many Benefits of Meditation
This program is fundamentally about cultivating inner peace and inner strength training. If someone thinks its about spreading fear, or about violence, or about focusing on the ‘negative’ instead of the 'positive', then they don’t understand what this is about at all, and are projecting their own fears on it.
