Welcome to the fourth installment of this series. Today we take a look at the H in ANTHEM, which stands for Harmonize with What Is.
I’ve decided to write this post backwards. That is, I want to talk first about the ultimate fruits of this practice and then wind my back to how to begin it. I’m doing it this way because, unless you know what awaits you, you may not be motivated to practice this or understand why it’s so important to your spiritual evolution.
Ultimately Harmonizing with what is allows you to partake of and enjoy ALL that is, which is so huge and magnificent from this vantage point (3D reality) that you have no idea of its true scope and splendor. It includes more manifestations of consciousness, beauty and creativity than you can even imagine, and you get to share in it all, like a cosmic candy store. Although you will not experience the full magnificence of All That Is while living in 3 – or even 4 or 5 dimensions – you can, however, catch glimpses of it – and receive any bits you require or desire, but since reality is primarily energetic, you can only do this through the energetic act of harmonization.
In order to get to that point you must first experience other beingness in a specific way, close-up in a kind of energetic merging, which is like looking at the world through each pair of its eyes (and ears and all other senses both recognized and not). Other beingness, by the way, includes animals, plants, buildings, stars and rocks as well as other human beings. And harmonizing with it requires full acceptance, appreciation and compassion.
So now we’ve come full circle around to your healing task, because the only way to develop real compassion for any and all other forms of being (consciousness) is to cultivate it for yourself. Therefore, the practice of harmonization must first address yourself with all your “flaws”, shadows and emotionality. In other words you must learn to be in the same room (energetically speaking) with all parts of yourself, especially the ones that have been screaming at you out of fear, anger or unrequited grief and the ones that have been hiding out of shame.
This principle, like the others, is an aspect of Love and, as such, is both gentle and powerful. There is nothing much to do to harmonize with yourself, except to remain conscious, which means to embrace all aspects of you within the whole of your Divine Self, which is made of Love. Harmonization does not mean reliving the traumas of the child or engaging in the drama or acting out the feelings. These are all acts of losing the Self. It DOES mean allowing yourself to feel whatever your upset, fragmented self is feeling and holding that part in love. This is a re-discovery that leads to integration.
You’ll notice that I’ve used the word feel frequently. This is how we contact the world of energy, which makes feeling a critical element of any healing exploration. The most evolved human beings feel in full consciousness, and all the time, meaning they are not afraid to feel – and in fact draw strength from it – while they act, relate and create. And this is the harmony I wish for you.
