Along the path of spiritual ascension, we learn, grow and evolve constantly. While we discover the gifts of the divine, we also have to make some very important decisions in our associations and close relationships. For a number of reasons, we might have to break away from people and situations that can be harmful to us or to those close to us. In our hearts, we want to be accepting and understanding of everyone. We don't want to gossip or judge or assume. It can be ingrained in us to give everyone a chance and to coexist with others whose intentions and level of awareness may be quite different from ours. As we all make our spiritual transitions, we have to accept the roles we were meant to play for the sake of everyone's enlightenment. It isn't always an easy thing to do.
In the quest to maintain our integrity, we may forget to respect our own boundaries and protect ourselves from places and people that rob us of our energy. Trying so hard to be respectful of others, we might end up being silent when we should speak up. In some cases, we might have to patiently wait for the right time and place to do so. We may be asked fo our opinion or to describe our experience before we decide what approach to take and how much to share. We learn to discern if the situation is serious enough to warn others or to let them have their own experience in the karmic give and take that we all play out here. Every observation is an opportunity for us to practice our connections with our guides for insight and options on how to proceed. A strong connection to your spiritual guides will give you amazingly accurate information on which to make your decisions.
Recently I was in a situation which required me to sit back and watch things unfold without any confrontation or explanation to anyone else. After the "incident", I spoke my peace, wished the person well and moved on. I realized they had a definite pattern in their life theme. They had recently ended several business and personal relationships and many things they said or did, weren't making sense. The game plan kept changing for their life and career. They claimed that people were turning against them over jealousy or ego. It seemed everything had to be their way or the highway. I was watching a huge control drama play out among a large group of people. This person was an interrogator who used information to gain energy and then offer rescue.
My guides were telling me that everyone involved would have to make their own assessments and decisions on what actions to take or not to take. This was one of those "group" soul lessons where it was a good example to everyone what happens when and interrogator tries to take charge of a spiritually motivated group. Sooner or later, the drama plays out that everyone steps back and away from the person, who grows increasingly angry that no one is paying attention anymore. The others recognize their energy is being depleted by being on the defensive constantly and the anxiety it causes that drains them even more. An interrogator wants to be in control at all times, it gives them the energy and attention that they crave. They want you to feel that you need them 24/7.
Many situations set up certain control dramas that are easier to diffuse and handle once we have the insight we need. If you choose to confront someone, make sure this action is entirely necessary or it can set up more of the same for the future and lock you into a situation of continuous defense. If you stay quiet and watch it play out, you will sometimes witness the concept of instant karma. As the World moves further into Ascension, time and karma also accelerate full speed ahead. You only need to breathe and wait and realize that these negative behaviors will be met with many more lessons and trials for the soul to understand. So maybe instead of getting really angry or defensive or giving the situtation any of our good and shining energy, we can sit back and let the Universe handle it.
