Spiritual Bypass

January 20, 2014

Freedom at the Core, Home, Welcome

In these times of massive change and spiritual highs on Earth, it is important to stay alert to the potential to engage in a phenomena often called a “spiritual bypass”.

December 21, 2012 was marked by many religions, prophets and sages as the completion of a 5,000 year cycle, a cycle which took us to a turning point on Planet Earth. A point where lives are in a hanging in balance, teetering between breakdown and breakthrough.earthRise-black

Some believed it was a threshold point for a leap in human consciousness and others declared it as a “doomsday”, the end of the world.

In all of this, some consider themselves instruments in the process. Whether spiritual, religious or cultural creatives of any kind we can think of them as “imaginal cells” of our world. People filled with passion to hold the vision and actively participate in the breakdown-breakthrough process during this major shift in in human consciousness. People who are infused with the passion to write and talk about the changes happening. People who conspire and intend to bring inspiration, purpose and motivation to the world.

They know who they are.

And while some silently do their job, others become famous inspirational spiritual speakers. They want to express their purpose and be part of the resolution for what isn’t working on the planet, bringing forth the most peaceful, loving, compassionate and awe inspiring time in history.

And as I said earlier, in this time of massive change and spiritual highs, it is important to stay alert to the potential to engage in a “spiritual bypass”.

I say this with the knowing we all love to experience the joy, bliss and awe available. We want to experience the wonderful states of consciousness available.

And, at the same time, we can support each other in staying grounded, to support each other in staying in the truth of things:

  • Supporting each other in opening to the vast and multidimensional reality being unveiled, while also staying grounded in the physical, emotional and rational aspects of our planet.
  • Noticing how we are conducting our lives in these uncertain and pivotal times.
  • Evoking the changes we want in the world through deeper inner awareness of ourselves, not loosing ourselves in spiritual high while bypassing the internal work required of each of us.
  • Helping each other remember that spiritual bypass always leads to some kind of crisis, forcing you to get present and grounded.

At times I get excited and find myself spinning into a space where I want to “hold onto” the wonderful joy, bliss and awe I’m experiencing.  And then, “puff” the wonderful experience is gone!  What just happened? Where did I go?  I slipped into what I call my “fantasy bond”! (I’ll share more about what I mean by that in another conversation).

Getting “too far out” eventually leads to exposing things you’ve kept hidden, usually because you thought it wasn’t “spiritual”, so hiding behind a self image as  being someone”spiritually important”. And underneath perhaps you know you’ve been…

  • Judging other people, rather simply seeing the truth and being self reflective bringing more compassion and peace into the world.
  • “Using” people to a get a “disgust fix” about, so you can feel better about yourself.
  • Focusing on who you consider not as conscious as you, or not doing it the “right” way.

In other words, spiritual bypass is bypassing what you really need to be staying present with. It’s a hiding  behind spiritual self importance to stay high and delusional about what’s really happening.

Closing the gap in a spiritual bypass takes a commitment to stay grounded and real. Staying in the truth of  challenges and facing what you need to deal with. And it takes a ruthless decision to not abandon yourself.

THE GOOD NEWS IS: When you stay grounded and are not abandoning yourself, you start to understand the world around you won’t abandon you either. They love and trust you!

Choices to resolve spiritual bypassing include:

  • Admit and resolve any resentment you are holding (see “Getting Clear on Resentment”)
  • Forgive with the willingness to let it go (see “Getting Clear on Forgiveness”)
  • Let go of using spiritual paraphendalia and spirituality as a self image of “who you are” (see “Getting Clear on Spiritual Self Importance”).
  • Allow outer and inner judgements to be radical self-relections to be embraced and set free. (see “Getting Clear on Judgments”)
  • Stay real and embrace challenges in the moment.(see “Getting Clear on Embracement”)

Become the change. Become the catalyst for the changes that we want to see in the world.

To your success,

Crystal Maya. From that point, the adventure will continue onward, bringing untold challenges and blessings. As we advance to a new level on the spiral of Time, let us comprehend the vastness of our journey ahead. Each day the mystery deepens, bringing new trials and new awarenesses. There is no pre-determined outcome to our collective story.The essential message of the 2012 Prophecy is that the more we each awaken to our personal contribution to this planetary moment, the greater the possibilities emerge for positive change.
