This is a transcript of an episode of Aquarian Diary I published on April 27, 2023.
Welcome to Aquarian Diary.
I’m your host, John Irving.
It is April 27, 2023.
For the past while now, I’ve had the honor of speaking with many people from around the world. And I say honor because in just about every exchange, there is some information or knowledge, or perspective, that is conveyed to me, which turns out to be meaningful. It’s been a surprising aspect of my work.
There’s something else that has come up a lot in my conversations and work with other people. I have been working with some people on dealing with techniques to shift their energy in positive ways. I’ve been doing classes on energy management. I’ll put a link to that in the description.
And a recurring theme in that work is that many people experience what looks like interference or resistance to actually doing the work. It seems like at least half of the people that I discuss this with experience this phenomenon.
Now I’m able to recognize this just because I’ve seen it happen so many times. It kind of goes like this.
There will be both a push and a pull to actually doing the work.
Part of someone will recognize clearly that they should do it, and the thought of doing it feels good, and another part of them will be manifesting all of this obstructional kind of resistance.
For example, life circumstances will emerge that just get in the way, or that prevent them from doing the practices.
It’s almost like there’ll be an avalanche of activity trying to prevent them from doing the exercises that I will prescribe. And the person will often be aware of this and asking themselves, if not me, what is going on?
For example, they will say, “I want to do this. I know I should, but there’s part of me that just doesn’t want me to do it.”
I’ve seen this happen over and over again.
This can be coming from many sources. We shouldn’t jump to conclusions about where it originates from.
It could be an expression of our own dark side, because we all have one. And there’s a relationship between the strength of your dark side and how much shadow work you have done in the past. And let’s face it, a lot of people don’t like to do shadow work because it’s not typically easy.
It can also be other beings, whether they’re people incarnate or not, or otherwise, who do not want us to change because they are attached to the status quo.
It can even be people who are like “frenemies”, people that we think have our best interests at heart, but are actually jealous or resentful of us in some way.
For example, let’s take being A. They want to evolve. Being B may fear that if person A evolves, they won’t love them in the same way that they did before. There is a lot of fear around change. That’s just common sense.
So even though people may not communicate these kinds of things to us verbally, they may feel things energetically, they may feel a threat to the status quo energetically without even being aware of it.
Then what happens is they then proceed to help facilitate or create obstacles to person A evolving. And they can be very real. They can show up as events that occur, like little emergencies or things that need to happen at certain times and things like that. A lot of this can occur unconsciously, is what I’m saying.
There can also be non-material beings who are energetically attached to people who fear them changing or evolving for similar reasons.
What I’m getting at is that there can be a tremendous amount of resistance or inertia to people evolving, and this can play out sometimes for weeks or months or even years, if not many lifetimes.
The person who wants to evolve can also have subconscious resistance. There may be a part of their unconscious that also fears change. Because even sometimes when people have difficult lives or challenging experiences, the familiar may be more comfortable than the unfamiliar.
Now a lot of that can be seen in the astrology chart. There are certain signs and planetary energies that are more resistant to change.
Nonetheless, when the individual who wants to evolve makes that decision and dedicates themselves – in the form of discipline and being diligent about doing their spiritual practice – nothing can stand in their way because they are exercising their free will and agency. And that is a divine right.
This is why I am always emphasizing being disciplined. It’s not like in the army in boot camp kind of discipline. The discipline is necessary often to overcome all of this unconscious and non-material and material resistance and inertia.
So I can’t emphasize this enough.
If, for example, you are listening to this and you’ve been saying to yourself for a long time “I really should do my spiritual practice and I should really take it more seriously,” and then you always find excuses and reasons why you can’t.
“Oh, I’m tired,” or “Something happened today that threw me off emotionally,” or “My boyfriend just called and wants to go to dinner.” Well, you can put off your boyfriend for 30 minutes. You know, like, really.
It’s not that we have to stop our lives, but we do have to make a commitment to doing this work.
At some point, the person who wants to evolve simply has to decide that they’re going to do it no matter what. And then they put their foot down and they just become disciplined and diligent about doing their work or their spiritual practice regardless of what happens.
Another thing is that there is part of us that knows that when we engage in our spiritual work things will change. It starts on the energetic or psychic levels, and then it ripples out and manifests in the third dimension. And I think most people know that, if not intellectually, intuitively. So there are consequences to it.
However, I can virtually assure you that whatever changes take place will be for the better. Our higher selves and spirit or the universe do not want us to suffer unnecessarily. They want us to grow and evolve and for our lives to be meaningful.
There have even been many cases where I myself have suffered energetic blowback when working with other people on these kinds of practices. Not necessarily from them, but from energies that are attached to them in some way.
And I don’t always necessarily mean literally attached. I mean attached to the status quo, of them and their energy. Because I become a threat to their perceived interests. That is just a fact.
So I have to manage my energy very carefully when I’m doing this kind of work, because as it can really take a toll on me at times. However, when people do follow through and change, it is profoundly rewarding and uplifting for me to observe and for me to be able to participate in that kind of outcome.
Another point is that because this experience is so prevalent, it points to how effective these techniques are. If the discipline was not effective, there would be no resistance, because it wouldn’t be threatening to the status quo.
Most people comment that they really enjoy the work and that it feels great. There’s nothing negative about the work.
So to summarize, what I’m saying is that it is very common, if not more often than not, for people contemplating engaging in spiritual practice to have to overcome a lot of inertia and resistance to doing the work in the first place.
And that it is necessary, especially in the beginning, to be disciplined about it in order to overcome that initial inertia.
And that resistance will also manifest in the third dimension as frustrating delays, challenges, obstacles, and distractions.
And that we have to overcome the fear of change and evolution, and recognize that it is not a threat to us, nor will it cause us harm.
On the contrary, it is much more likely that staying the same is the least desirable option.
I cannot overstate this enough. Like I said, I’ve seen this over and over and over again.
So if you’re interested in learning these techniques, I have a series of classes. It’s very time consuming on my part to do this. But I get a lot of feedback from Spirit and from the people I’m working with that it’s good.
A lot of people need to break old ways of being and old habits. Sometimes ways of being that have existed for many lifetimes.
Because there’s a real opportunity right now – and I’m getting strong chills saying this – there’s a real opportunity right now for people to evolve tremendously at speeds they could not do in past incarnations.
Once you reset your energy you can go off and do whatever you want. This is not a religion.
So I thought I’d share that. I’ll put a link in the episode description to these classes.
But this is just more of a public service because I sense a lot of people have been going through this experience or debate in their heads, contemplating doing the work.
I published one episode titled “Energetic Hygiene” and I’ve also published some short little practices for people to do, but those are somewhat limited. I can’t really put all of the details that I actually use in my own practice on this channel or my website or whatever. There’s a lot of context that needs to be conveyed and there needs to be some discussion about what’s going on and why.
Also, it seems like people aren’t getting updates about my videos, so please check my channel directly, periodically, to see if I have uploaded any new episodes.
If you’re interested in an astrology reading, I’ll also put a link to that in the episode description.
Take care, all the best, and I’ll talk to you again soon.
