As higher frequency energies penetrate our universe feelings rooted in perceptions of self, of others, of the world noticeably surface offering no lag time.
You perceive, judge and feel external circumstance almost instantaneously.
Much chaos is being catalogued “within” by a nervous system responding or reacting to stimuli “without”, to external stimuli.
That chaos often overstimulates the nervous system of the unaware.
The standard operating procedure used to discover the source of feelings that surface is to look outside the self, externally, for the cause, not within.
Analysis of the external world uses customary definitions based on cultural biases that usually criticize, judge and blame.
Rarely do we investigate our inner world to examine the essence behind or underneath feelings, to use those feeling as a guidance system, an internal GPS system, while navigating through the world’s external stimuli.
Typical psychological examination of darker feelings can be reproachful. Analysis often narrates that something’s wrong with us, with our viewpoint.
Experiential occurrences register up and down the scale of pleasantness and, to put it mildly in some cases, unpleasantness.
If those experiences are of Love, they expand or inflate feelings of joy or goodness.
If not, they contract and are chronicled on the other end of the spectrum.
Feeling balanced and centered within a peaceful universe ensues when all’s fine and good.
And then, there’s days when those feelings cannot even be closely approximated.
When balanced and centered I’m near or in the heart-space, responding to circumstances and manifesting pleasant, new creations.
When I’m not, I’m in the neighborhood of the mind.
A place, I’ve learned, I shouldn’t go alone, unassisted or unprepared, without the tools to ground, balance and center.
It’s there where I’m more inclined to be reactive to circumstances and manifest more unpleasant ones.
There’s a huge difference between reacting and responding to circumstances.
Investigation into external circumstances will show that all circumstances are neutral.
A sustained acceptance exists that there is reason to identify [with] them and react or respond accordingly.
Reactionary or responsive behavior is subordinate to perception.
A reaction is typically quick, without much thought. It’s tense and aggressive.
Reactionary behavior doesn’t indicate intent unless one intends to create reactions to stimuli.
See the marketing industry or military industrial complex for that. Reactions promote more reactions.
[One could, however, intentionally create a situation where one would want to respond to stimuli as in the playing of a preferred piece of music to relax or soothe.]
A response, on the other hand, is thought out, calm and non-threatening.
The belief patterns that are used to judge external circumstance are actually bandwidths of energy. All thoughts are.
Bandwidths of energy-laden belief patterns, both personal and collective, regularly surface If I’m so inclined to investigate them.
Self-inquiry concerning unbalanced feelings of discomfort or unease raises questions that deserve answering: “Where’s the focus?” “Who’s doing the looking, the perceiving?” “Is it a constructed self?”
How does that focus reflect the way I refer to myself? What’s the opinion I hold of myself? What do I tell myself…about myself?
Which personal perceptions direct that focus?
“Just who do I think I am, anyway?” is the resounding question.
With thoughts manifesting realities so quickly now, a clearer understanding or awareness of how I think about “me” is sensible.
How do I deal with feelings that are dense—feelings of a lower vibrational nature?
The answer, I’m learning, is that I forgive them while remembering the truth of who I truly am, acknowledging my true identity. And my true identity is not found in the body.
I’m grateful to Kathleen Mary Willis’ articles, 21 Days of Forgiveness for Peace on Gaia’s Valentine’s 2018 and The Forgiveness Road, for providing insights on bringing ease to the practice of forgiving those dense vibrational manifestations born of temperaments not of love. 
Dissolving all manner of core beliefs, resentments, judgments and other dispositions that are not of Love is pleasurable.
Forgiveness is a very powerful and effective tool when, as Kathleen points out, it’s done consistently and with an appropriate disposition.
Consistency is vitally important!
Without a continuous and active forgiveness platform the illusory world of lack and blame prevails.
The underpinning of that platform is found in the perceived relationship the individual has with what some wisdoms of the ages call The Nameless, The Infinite One, Source, the “All That Is”, God, etc.
