The Clearing is a course, which creates the space for our authentic lives to emerge. It demonstrates the indomitable power of the human spirit to transform. Very few of us ever live our authentic life. At some stage in our lives we experienced hurt or fear. In response to this, we reacted with negativity. We said to ourselves – “I will never again allow myself to feel like this.” We therefore shut down our emotional system in a misguided attempt to prevent further hurt and fear. From that point we spend the rest of our lives living from a context of hurt and fear. It should come as no surprise that living from this context brings more, not less, hurt and fear.
Learning to live our authentic lives therefore means going deep and clearing out the source of our hurts and fears. In addition to clearing our own hurts, fears and negativity, we also have to clear all of the inculcations, programming, and conditionings from our tribe and society. Close to one hundred percent of all the stuff that we are taught is false. Yet in the absence of a clearing we go on believing these false things for our entire lifetime, never questioning or examining their validity and relevance to our lives. Not only do these false beliefs prevent us from realizing our higher self but they also condemn us to living at the same level of consciousness as the rest of the tribe. Living like this, we invariably lose connection with our real self, compromising our personal power and integrity and selling out our higher self. We develop an ego – which is a façade or personality that literally takes over our life as an imposter. Once the ego is formed and develops, its only purpose is to prevent us from reconnecting with our higher self. The ego does not care how it accomplishes this task, it could let us be rich or poor, sick or healthy – as long as it wins and we never discover who we really are.
One of the results of living our lives from the context of the ego is separation and competition. From this context we unconsciously perceive the other as the competition or the enemy. We send negativity to the other without even recognizing that we are doing so. It’s just the way we are programmed. We fight against each other – sometimes even our own spouses, children, friends and team members. This context of separation is one of the main causes of all of the violence and negativity in the world. From this context we do not perceive that what we do onto the other we are actually doing to ourselves.
In the Clearing we experience a powerful realization – that there is no “out there” – it is simply that “as I sow so shall I reap; what I give is what I receive”. The ego’s main hold on us is its capacity to make us deny ourselves and feel badly about ourselves. The result of this is that we lack self-love and self trust. Without love and trust for ourselves we are basically lost in fear and negativity. When we have no love and trust for ourselves – it will be impossible to love and trust others. We therefore project our own fear and negativity onto others. We can only see in the other that which we have in ourselves. We also attract people into our lives who reflect our own level of consciousness.
The most important thing about the clearing is that it provides a freedom to be. Without a clearing it is as if we live in a prison imposed by the ego. When we are clear we stay in our power. We live from our higher self. We for the first time experience true happiness, bliss, self-sufficiency, health and the ability to live in the present moment.
