Who Do You Think You Are?!

We all have stories about how things are. We have a story of the type of person we are. what we do, how we act, what we look like, what type of success we have had. Some of these stories were born from our childhood examples. Some of them came from our results in life as an adult. We have a few successes in a new career and we change our story about who we are as a professional. We see ourselves as competent in business. What happens when we hit a rough patch and lose a few big accounts resulting in getting fired?

How to Gain Power Over Your Addiction

How to Gain Power Over Your Addiction – Slaying One Dragon at a Time

~

Let’s talk about addiction. Have you ever watched yourself doing something you know is bad for you but you do it anyway?

Do you ever find yourself not being able to stop thinking about that drink you are going to have when you get off or the chocolate cake you are going to eat tonight at dinner?

Have you ever decided to go to a party just for the food or drink? Come on admit it, you have at least done this once right? What about being more excited to have popcorn than the actual movie you are going to see?

In the Mind of an Addict

What Happens in the Mind of the Addict?

~
There are tons of books and meetings to tell you all about addiction and how to manage it. I have read a lot and I have been to the meetings. I do not disagree with any of the advice I’ve gotten from many of these sources.
~
Today, I want to talk about what happens in the mind of an addict. For me, addiction starts with an emptiness. It is easy to miss.
Most of the time, we skip over the feeling and go straight to the escape, which is what substances promise us.
They promise that we will instantly feel different…better. We will feel full again. You can pick a different substance each week if you want, but it is still the same emptiness.
That is why there is addiction even after we quit drinking or taking those pills. The emptiness stays and the want to escape can make us crazy especially if we are just trying to stay away from the substance that gave us the quick fix.
Here is the deal. Feeling empty is uncomfortable.

 Escaping Addiction - Misha Almira
~
No one wants to go into a black hole or the unknown.
We don’t know what is going to jump out  or consume us. We might not ever come out! Instead of just facing the big scary empty hole inside we start to obsess about escaping it.
It starts with one thought. Then, we lose half the day just thinking about our escape.
Everyone else becomes a nuisance getting in our way of “truly being happy.”  We don’t even see what is happening.
~
Now I’m going to tell you what I have discovered.
~
There are predatory entities or spirits that feed on emptiness, fear, doubt, shame, guilt, remorse, hatred and disgust.
They want us to be swallowed in the emptiness so they have more to feed on and can get control over our minds.
They want to destroy you. If you have ever been deep in an addiction, you know this is true.
They are just waiting for us to start thinking negative thoughts about ourselves and about others.
They also love to feed the addictions. Alcohol, certain drugs, or anything we take too much of can become energetic portals for entities to slip through.
Ever had that feeling like you weren’t being yourself while under the influence?
~
They especially love it when we obsessively think. They come in and start feeding us thoughts that perpetuate our misery.
They entice us with unhealthy thoughts of how that drink will make us feel better.
This is how we lose control of our lives through addiction. It starts with a thought and then we give our power over to these predatory thoughts and powers that influence them.
~
This is not a religious thing, but if you watch it while it is happening it becomes very clear.
~
I will give you an example. The other day, I was sitting at my computer and started feeling bored and hungry.
I started having thoughts about how I had no food in the house and no car to go get any. I was getting mad because my boyfriend had the car. My thoughts were just bombarding me.
I was going to go the store and get nachos and cookies. Maybe I would order pizza. Blah Blah Blah.
~
Food Addiction - Misha Almira
~
Then, I stopped and asked myself what was going on? I took a breath and noticed what I was feeling. I felt desperate inside, bored, hungry, and empty. There it was. Big dark and lonely emptiness.
Then I asked myself if I was okay with just feeling desperate, bored, hungry, and empty.
My body relaxed,  and I breathed in deeply. I instantly felt relief. Just allowing our current experience can give us relief. One of the bravest questions we can ask ourselves is, “how am I feeling right now?”
Our first response might be something like, “I feel like getting the hell out of here!” or “I feel annoyed by these people taking in my way!”
There is always something beneath these types of escape thoughts. They can mask as feelings. The trick is to go deeper.
Do you feel sad?
Do you feel angry?
Do you feel guilty?
Do you feel lonely?
Do you feel scared?
Our ego likes to tell us how ridiculous this is, but I dare you to really try it. I don’t mean ask yourself and then get distracted with better things. I mean ask yourself and truly feel the answer.
~
If we do this often enough, we will start to realize the emptiness is the key to our ultimate fulfillment.
Each time we feel it, it becomes a little less scary. Then, all that emptiness can be filled.
We will notice our creativity coming back and our joy. We all want happiness, fulfillment, and love.
We can start by acknowledging where we are feeling empty. Then, we can work on filling it.
It sounds simple and it actually is, if you are willing to stop right now and notice. We can set an intention of filling ourselves with Divine Love.

My Battle with Darkness & Light

 

Misha Almira - Battle of Light & Dark

My Battle with Darkness & Light – Psychic Attacks & How to Protect Yourself

~

There has been a battle going on inside me and in the world for a while now. It is the battle between light and dark.  I would wake up feeling drained and ready for sleep. It felt like my nights were filled with fighting entire battles.

~

Even throughout the day, I would have a sense of constantly having my guard up. There was an awareness at all times on my inner world, putting up protective shields, with one eye watching psychic predators at all times. It would trigger fight or flight and was forcing me to be on high alert with my surroundings. There was a threat of allowing other beings into my field with the thoughts I was following in my mind.

~

It seemed that all the work I did to increase light and raise frequency was putting out an especially attractive call to darkness. Psychic attacks are happening to more of us lately, especially if we are diligently working on raising our vibration. This is actually one of the many symptoms of the opening and moving beyond 3rd Dimension (3D).
~
Af first, I was relying heavily on Archangels and Angels to protect me. What I noticed was sometimes it felt like they were not really helping me. At first I judged this as I must have offended them in some ways, or maybe I was asking too much from them. I was just noticing that when I did call them in, it did not always feel like a positive shift in energy.
~
This started turning my world upside down. I was questioning everything. I was questioning my fundamental beliefs about light, dark, higher allies, God, Creator, Christ, Existence, and Divinity. What could I put my trust in? If I could not trust Angels and light beings, what could I call on for protection? What did this mean?  My whole life has been dedicated to Christ Consciousness and serving God. I was being rocked and had no clue where to look.
~
Then, I became aware of several synchronicities that were occurring and they were presenting the same message. I was even seeing 1111 everywhere and waking up at 4:44 a.m.  on consecutive mornings.  I kept hearing the message, ” trust nothing outside yourself. Go within.” I was still being guided, but big questions were coming up.
~
I already had an appointment scheduled to work with a Shamanic Healer that I have been working with for the past 5 years. We opened Sacred Space and it was more powerful than usual. I could feel the protection all around me. I could sense the positive energy allies. I let my guard down and decided to trust the process.
~
She did a healing and tracked the source of this feeling of being haunted or stalked by darkness.  She did not feel like I’d let anything inside me which I knew. Although I still found relief in hearing someone else say it.
~
Then, she tracked it back to an old contract in another lifetime. Somehow this felt right. In this past lifetime, I had committed myself to service of others. I said I was available as a conduit for beings to work through me. Some of the work was used for good and some for bad. I had agreed to both. Everything she said to me resonated because I was already getting these messages from my inner guide. Once again, I got the message to trust myself and go within.
~
You see, in addition to all I’ve talked about, I also get frequent feelings of shame and guilt. I feel like somehow I am not a good person and that I’ve abused my power before. Although, I have no memories of doing this. Whenever I have tapped into my power, I instantly become afraid and shut it down by giving it away to others. I have not been able to fully embrace my power for years and have felt like I’m stuck in an elusive prison. With this new knowledge, I finally understood on a very deep level.
~
Revoking Contracts
We worked on revoking these old contracts and agreements that I had made previously. I made the decision to revoke these old arrangements and to bring my power back. All the power that I had given freely. Then, as I felt my energy lightening and my energy coming back I was aware of a slight dread. It was as if I was waiting for a backlash. We continued to cut cords and then focused on bringing in the light. I set an intention to make my powers available to the light that transmutes darkness and is here for my highest good. It was safe to trust myself and my power.
~
After the session, I felt free.  I felt a lightness of being and more personal power. Then, as night came, I started feeling  a slight resistance to being influenced from something. There were incidences that were triggering fear in me and I could feel  a certain vulnerability. It felt like a psychic attack. I instinctively started calling on Angels for protection but did not feel a shift. I put up my own protection and focused on activities to raise my vibration. It shifted after about 20 minutes.
~
I have since become aware of a third factor in the battle between light and dark. I have written more about it HERE.
