Authentic Self-Inquiry

Without deep personal inquiry spiritual development, and ascension, are not possible. But there are so many misconceptions about what this actually means. The electric mis-translation is “self-analyzing”, the magnetic one is “extreme surrender”.
Personal inquiry is NOT the same thing as self-analyzing. When we self-analyze, we use our mental body in order to figure out the answers based on something we already know. You can see how this process is limited, right? Because the available answers are contained within the parameters of knowledge that the Ego already has. And that usually means that the answers come from whichever part of the Ego is the strongest.
Let us separate a person into four parts – the Body, the Inner Female (emotions), the Inner Male (thoughts), and the Soul (Higher Self). Since we are talking about analyzing – this means that the Male side, the thinking, is the strongest pattern in that person, so their Ego is seeing itself as “mental”. This is an attempt to find answers, and that person will be looking through their own knowledge base in an attempt to do so.
When we try to figure out how to move into the next step of our personal development, we have to use what is OUTSIDE of the parameters of the Ego. If we stick to the Ego view, then we end up in the same place where we started, walking in circles. Thus other mechanisms are required in order to become awakened. Analyzing does work for setting up a strategy based on the available data, and for sorting and organizing information. But not for spiritual development!
Inner inquiry is NOT the same thing as extreme surrender either. This type of surrender is often used as a strategy by the Lower Self to procrastinate, to avoid having to DEAL with the problem. True surrender is meant to be not in letting the Self go, but in letting the Ego go – i.e. the personality is meant to surrender to the Soul, which is in alignment with God Source (the Soul-Self). When one tries to inquire inside, and does it by self-erasure, there is no one to receive the answer! It is an extreme measure to engage in and it is not beneficial to spiritual development either.
So what is personal inquiry then? 
Personal inquiry is a balance between Intuition and the Inner Observer.
Intuition is the means of accessing knowledge that is beyond Ego parameters. It is the Inner Female way – the magnetic energy of connecting to Oneness and at the same time staying true to oneself. That bridge between you and the Oneness will “vibrate” when you inquire, and the resonance it generates brings answers from beyond the Ego.
The Observer is the required component because it allows us to be impartial and view what is going on inside of us as we experience life out in the world. Remember we separated a person into four parts (the Body, the Inner Female (emotions), the Inner Male (thoughts), and the Soul (Higher Self)? Let every one of these four parts of you share the inner space (like a conference room, round table style), and listen to their views. This tells you what the climate is of your internal world. Once you know that, you have choices to make. But first get all four opinions WITHOUT taking sides. This is very important – if our consciousness takes sides (“I should not be thinking this”, “it is stupid that I am feeling this”, “it shouldn’t matter”, etc.), we switch from Observer to the Ego, forfeiting the inquiry attempt. The only way to truly get a measurement of your internal climate is through the eyes of the Observer.
What is required for self-inquiry? – a combination of Intuition and the inner Observer.
What is required to turn the Intuition on? – the bridge between the Self and Oneness (i.e. connect to the Universe while feeling your own preciousness and uniqueness).
What is required to turn the inner Observer on? – detachment (you have to let everyone inside of you have an opinion, speak up, while you stay neutral and collect data).

Authentic Self-inquiry will allow you to see the true source of the inner problems and find solutions (instead of walking around in emotional and mental circles). It will also move you beyond thoughts and emotions, into the world of I AM – where you have access to Universal Intelligence. 


Learn the cause of your discomfort and resolve it

Have you noticed lately how personal discomfort levels have shot up? Considering what is going on in the world recently it is very tempting to slide into the Lower Self fears and defenses, being torn between the desire to hide, to help, and to self-protect.

You are uncomfortable for a reason – the reason is that your Lower Self beliefs are telling you to act in a certain way (worry, be scared, be angry, be protective, be desperate or negatively righteous about your opinions, etc.) while your Higher Self beliefs are telling you to act in the opposite way (stay neutral, Oneness-connected and Love-centered, aligned with the God Source inside yourself). Hopefully you are choosing the Higher Self mode – meanwhile, the Lower Self is freaking out, yelling at you that you are “being cruel and heartless!” or “jeopardizing your safety!!” or “escaping reality”… This inner dichotomy would make anyone uncomfortable and unstable!

But… The good news is that this is a transitionary stage – you need to learn to TRANSMUTE the Lower Self beliefs (not just to “ignore them”) so that the Higher Self mode is the ONLY mode left. In other words, instead of having two equally loud voices inside, you have one loud (Higher Self) voice and the other whispering (Lower Self) voice until it eventually AGREES with the Higher Self. We work on not following the immature advice of the Lower Self (hopefully succeeding most of the time in that) but this does not change the Lower Self’s opinions – we simply ignore them and move on. What happens then to the Lower Self views? – exactly: NOTHING. They remain inside, fester and grow stronger until one day we are triggered and they come out at us with a vengeance…

The key here is to help the Lower Self grow and evolve it’s immature beliefs in self-sacrifice and negative righteousness, fears and victimhood – not to just override them. Now is the time for good self-parenting – most of us were not parented well by our own parents (they had no idea how to do it!) and then we were not sure how to parent our own children (and so we did some of it out of incorrect beliefs), thus now we need to make sure we parent ourselves well. Self-parenting means that your Higher Self is parenting (in charge of) your confused and scared Lower Self's inner child – this way the wisdom is parenting the fears and worries.

When your world-views and self-views are from the Higher Self, you know that safety is internal, and that true caring is based on a compassionate detachment and passionate participation only when beneficial for ALL involved, and that you must be in the Vertical Belonging alignment in order to be safe, caring and passionate – and this means that you must be INDIVIDUATED. You can still choose to do something good for the tribe (family or human in general), but not as a self-sacrifice, only as a self-add-on, a “passionate participation” when the benefit is spiritually appropriate for all who are involved.

The problems arise when the Lower Self patterns bleed out to the surface and the fear, or beliefs like “I must make sure they are ok” take over – it is like a momentary amnesia when you forget about the Higher Self view. From that place “fixing the world” by worrying about it seems a viable option. In reality, we are only adding to the tribal warfare when we worry and fear the future – we fall under the mind control of the lower morphogenic fields. So, continue working on staying in the balanced morphogenic fields of the Higher 3D Earth ascension timeline – thus getting out of the lower ones, unplugging from them, and remaining an Observer while LIVING your life.

Being powerful (self-masterful, sovereign, in charge of oneself) also means letting other people follow their own path, even if it is dissimilar to your own. If you want to live in the Higher 3D, you MUST let go of the lower 3D (you cannot be in both!) – this is how we all help to RESOLVE the current social mess of the tribal warfare mentality. BE the Light and Love, stay the course!
