Spiritual Response Therapy trains us to work with our High Self. This part of us is infinitely wise and infinitely loving. The High Self, once we learn to tune into it, guides us patiently and effectively on our soul's journey and brings ease and joy to our lives.
Now that is a very attractive proposition, isn't it? Who doesn't want ease and joy? So we embark on our spiritual journey to meet and work with our High Selves. It is only then we begin to realize the degree of our attachment to our ego minds.
Recently I had two such interesting calls....
There was Bob who had the toxic energy between himself and his deceased father cleared with SRT. They had a very contentious relationship while he lived. The toxic energy was dissolved. The energy shifted significantly. Then Bob's High Self directed Bob to do some conscious forgiveness work for his Dad as well as for a living sister. At this Bob was upset. He didn't like being told what to do. 'I don't like my High Self going behind my back and doing things without my say so', is what he told me. I asked him to ponder on who was the 'I' who was talking.
In a similar case, Jenny wanted SRT clearing to release the energy of trauma from past abuse. The energy had been cleared and released through SRT by several healers. Jenny however kept reliving her trauma and thereby recreating the energy. Her High Self too indicated that forgiveness work at a conscious mind level would greatly benefit her moving on. Jenny was incensed when she heard that. She was not even ready to consider forgiveness.
So there we are folks. Our ego selves love to be in control, to call the shots even if it means misery. The High Self always unfailingly shows the right path. Bob slammed the phone down on me when I pointed out that the 'I' was his ego self. Jenny went off looking for someone else to 'fix' her problem.
Working with the High Self is not for the lily-livered. First of all it needs acceptance that there indeed is higher guidance coming through, it needs commitment to spiritual work and most of all it needs courage to quieten the familiar voice of the ego and let the High Self speak.
And when we are able to do that, the wonders of life come rushing in bringing with it ease and joy.
