So I thought that discovering my I AM was the difficult part of the journey – but boy was I mistaken!
Embodying and integrating this new, powerful aspect is like a baby learning to walk for the first time – all thumbs, stumbling around in a familiar, yet simultaneously unfamiliar territory, finding my way around the changes in my reality.
When I was getting my degree in psychology almost half a lifetime ago, one of my favourite subjects was social psychology. One of the main premises of the subject is that an absolute reality does not exist – ‘reality’ is created by the perception of the person and solidified by personal and social conditioning.
This basically means that we have the power to create our reality via thoughts and perceptions.
We are not ‘stuck’ in the ‘reality’ we are in – we have the power and choice to change our reality and / or our perception of it.
Now that I have discovered my ‘I AM’ within myself, I have consciously chosen to change my reality to totally embody this aspect of me.
For example, second only to the Advanced Vibrational Techniques to bring about this change, was an Inner Child regression session, where I went to a memory as new born baby, hearing my parents fight. Not understanding what was happening, yet feeling extremely uncomfortable with the negativity, and I started crying. My parents did not hear me and continued fighting. It was at this time when I developed my first subconscious defining pattern – I do not exist.
The awareness and transformation of this memory was a powerful change for me.
Change is unfamiliar. So, as I am toddling around, acclimatising myself to my new reality, I developed the A E I O U framework help myself navigate this new territory.
A – Affirm : I developed short and sweet I AM affirmations
E – Embody : I physically embodied these affirmations using these steps every morning and evening
Now, I am not going to kid you – I felt downright silly doing it at first. However the more I did it, the more I believed, the more I embodied, the more normal it felt.
I – Integrate : I stuck post it notes everywhere I live to remind myself of these affirmations (luckily I have an extremely understanding husband).
O – Own : I own my affirmations. I walk and talk them. They
ooze from my presence – Fake it until you make it, I always say. Eventually, through conscious re-conditioning and re-alignment of my neural pathways, what I believe in becomes reality.
All this led to – U – Unlock and Understand my I AM
The beauty is once we have embodied all the different aspects of I AM within, we can just BE – I AM.
There is a belief that each of us is the incarnation of the individualised presence of Source – the I AM Presence. The mighty I AM is defined as our unique and immortal true identity.
According to the wisdom of the Ascended Masters, our I AM Presence is a part of our being right now; it is not removed, it is not separated from us. The only separation we have is our own human consciousness, our sense of limitation, and the accumulation of vibrations from this, and previous lifetimes, that are less than the highest qualities of your Real Self.
I would take this further to say that our ‘I AM’ presence is held within us, within our bodies.
For as long as I can remember, I have always had awareness of a tightness in my upper belly – where the 3rd Chakra is held. It made my breathing very shallow, caused indigestion at times, but more than that, during times of stress, it tightened and squeezed my diaphragm, making me dizzy and nauseous.
The first time I tried doing anything about this tension was when I went for a Jin Shin Jytsu session with a good friend of mine who is a healer. Jin Shin is an ancient art of healing by harmonising the life energy in the body. I had first gone to her for healing microplasma. Once that was shifted, we started on my Solar Plexus.
Little did I know at that point that this was going to be a life long journey.
I was then drawn to Regression Therapy and now am a practising regression therapist and train other regression therapists. In the years of my training as a regression therapist, and through swap sessions with other talented therapists, I kept working on getting to the source of the tightness in my Solar Plexus. I visited countless past lives, current life events and even frozen Inner Child parts, peeling back the layers of the source of this tightness.
In the middle of 2015, in both running and participating in the inaugral Advanced Techniques in the New Vibrational Plane Retreat in Mount Shasta with my husband, these energy techniques were used on the remaining layers and nub of my tightness, where the source of the issue was discovered and shifted.
Hidden underneath that seemingly impenetrable rock of energy in my solar plexus was my I AM presence, waiting to be discovered.
I AM my I AM presence.
There is nothing more powerful than the embodiment of that realisation.
For as long as I have been on the spiritual path, I have heard wisdom of those talking about the I AM presence – also known as our Monad or God or Goddess self to name a few.
For years, I have been seeking to live up to and merge my ‘I AM’ presence.
This year, it finally clicked! My I AM is not an elusive Being beyond me and my Higher Mind… My I AM presence has been within me the entire time – right smack bang in my Power Centre.
Please join my journey of discovering my I AM presence, and how discovering it has changed my life. I look forward to you sharing yours with me too.
