Background on This Exercise
Background: The most terrifying truth that you will ever learn about life is that you have chosen to be here. You have chosen to have each and everyone of the experiences you have gone through. You have chosen to become involved with all the people you have ever known in your life. You have chosen to put yourself through whatever pain you have, are, or will endure in life.
The experiences, people, and pain you have known have all been sent to teach you the lessons you and Spirit (or the Lords of Karma) have agreed were needed for your unfoldment or development as Soul into an ever more loving being.
Goal: Sometimes, in our haste to accelerate, our lives become a "bad news buffet" of misery that would make even soap opera characters cringe. "Bad news" becomes a way of life and the road of pain becomes so familiar that we do not even look for the EXIT ramps anymore.
Yet, if your Higher Self has led you here and allowed you to view this exercise, then it is time for you to step off the long and winding road of karma that led you here. A better road of dharma (joyful service) is only an EXIT ramp away, if you want to take it. Just follow the steps below to the "GREAT EGRESS" (way out!).
1> For the week prior to doing this exercise, consciously listen to yourself to:
disempowering thoughts and actions of pain and disharmony
you are the SOLE and TOTAL CAUSE of your life NOW
Accept that you are
a creator and can "improve" upon your creation
Know that your
purpose is to manifest from love and not from fear
Make a permanent
and unbreakable contract with yourself
2> If you find that you are unable to do this preparation - that it is too hard or you constantly are starting and stopping it - then you are not ready to do this exercise now. Wait a YEAR and start again. If, on the other hand, this week of preparation is effortless and joyful, you are ready to "go off road".
3> Do this exercise at night after you have taken a bath but before you have gone to bed. It is best you do it when you will be able to sleep the next day. It is best to do it when the next few weeks will not be highly demanding. This is a GREAT exercise for Christmas and New Years if you are vacationing.
4> When this exercise is complete, drink a glass of water and immediately cleanse yourself. Good cleansing will vary depending on if you are an:
sweating in a sauna or steam room is good cleansing.
5> Being comfortable is the key. You
can lie down (recommended) or sit up. If you opt to sit
up, you must be supported and feel fully relaxed and
6> Do this exercise in a peaceful place where you will be completely undisturbed for the entire session. This exercise should last for NO longer than 30 minutes. Set an alarm or timer to snap you out of it should the session begin to run any longer.
7> Be patient with yourself in the time to come. Going "off road" can be quite disorienting until the changes are integrated (you have been on it a LONG time). It is VERY powerful and it takes time for the work you have done on the inner bodies to be reflected in your outer body ("as above, so below"). If you are doing this process to effect a change, then you should be fully prepared to expect a change. You know the old saying: "Be careful what you wish for, you might get it!"
1> Take some deep, refreshing breaths until you are totally comfortable and relaxed in whatever position you have chosen (it should take you no more than 3 minutes to get comfortable).
2> Move beyond the end of the long road of karma by doing the following:
a> Declare your intention to have joy in your life from now on
b> Visualize that you have reached the end of the long road of karma. You must believe in your Soul that you deserve to end your karma now. Believing this with absolute, total certainty is the ONLY thing that makes this work It will not work if you see a Lord of Karma with a hand raised in a STOP position.
c> If the way is clear, look at the sign at the end of the road
d> If you are done your tasks, move to the end of the road
e> Time to quit or commit: take a leap off the end of the road
f> Believe you have learned your lessons and deserve joy
g> Once off the karmic road, you have stepped into dharma:
3> Embrace a new way of being where have become who you are (dharma) by doing the following:
a> You are now out of 3rd dimensional reality consciously
b> You must refuse any painful visions if they come up
c> You choose to move forward "dharmically"
Example: When I was guided to do this exercise, I thought it was pretty trivial sounding. Then again, if you are at the point where you are ready to transcend your karma, you have already worked so hard that it should be easy to step off the road of karma. The exercise is easy to do and quick to accomplish. What is not quick or easy are the consequences from doing this exercise. Take my case.
On the plus side, when I did this exercise, I did drop much baggage that was holding me back. I gained many skills and abilities that have made my current work possible. I improved dramatically on the scale of "life mastery" (ie. my health dramatically changed for the better, my job became one I loved instead of hated, my money problems were reduced, and my relationships with friends and family were much improved). In general, I just "felt better and more like my true self".
On the minus side, before I reaped the benefits of making this change, my life as it was completely fell apart. Much like constructing a new 4 lane superhighway, the old 1 lane country road had to be totally torn up first. Implementing this change was often painful and frustrating. I almost died (but I recovered and my health afterward was better than before). I lost some friends (but gained better ones). I lost a long term job (but gained a better one). I got into some financial trouble (but worked my way out of it). At times, I wished that I had never gone off the road. Yet, once all the change had been completed, I was better for the journey.
So, think long and carefully before you step off the road, you may be in for a bumpy ride to your next - and guaranteed - better destination!
As with everything else in life, the choice is yours!
