Are We Opposing Our Opponent?

There’s a lot of energy coming into my awareness at the moment about opposition.  Not in my reality but I’m aware of it around me, so I feel it’s asking to be written about.

The kind of opposition I’m talking about is bullying, not children, adults, but I suspect they are coming from a wounded child-like energy inside.  There are two types, actual face to face aggressive behaviour towards another when unprovoked and online thoughtless nastiness expressed through comments in community group posts, so these are people who live in the same community with each other.  Maybe this is something you’ve noticed around you too.

There’s a lot of opposition and polarity going on due to Covid, mostly around those that are inoculated and those that are not.  Before that, we had Brexit.  There’s a lot of opposition energy coming up in the world and I do feel this is a releasement.  It has to be expressed, noticed and then released through love.  Many people are stuck in the expression stage and they are not noticing.

Another area where this is manifesting is in the opposition between politicians/consumerism and the fears that a lot of people carry about the so-called ecological destruction of the Earth.  When we carry anger, fear, guilt, frustration or any kind of emotion expressed towards a situation, send it love.  This is another interface of opposition energy and another manifestation of fear, which we can get nowhere with but we end up creating more separation and worsening the energy.

When we respond to our opposer, we create an interface into which our opposer crashes.  There is a clash.  Opposition tends to be met with opposition, like two bulls coming together with a powerful collision.  It’s not going to improve the situation, is it?  In fact, it does the opposite, it makes the energy of aggression spike drastically and it becomes impossible for either of the opponents to back down or step away.  

What will happen if one of those bulls were to step to the side?  Then, the charging bull is going to be so full of momentum that he might run into a wall.  In any case, he’s going to miss his mark, not hurt his opponent and think hard about doing that again.  Maybe there will be a few more charges before he gets it, but if one opponent removes themselves from the situation, then there can be no clash, no aggression, no victim and no situation.

So, how does this translate to people?  A step-aside could mean physically walking away.  It could mean staying but instead of moving into opposition with the opposer, we stay calm, we stay in ‘adult’ mode.  Moving into opposition means becoming angry, reactive, taking it personally, and that means shouting back or perhaps getting hot-under-the collar tearful or emotional.  We go away feeling worse, not better.  And all of that emotion is a ‘child’ response.

Staying calm means we don’t personalise because it’s always about them and not about us.  We don’t respond or get angry, which is coming from our inner child who comes forward with those feelings from traumatic times when our child-self felt that way.  Instead, we notice and choose to remain in adult-self.  Adult-self stays calm and speaks like an adult.  We call them out, calmly, for what they are doing.  We demonstrate that they have missed their mark, we are not hurt or even ruffled and then we walk away.  In my experience, that usually leaves the attacker speechless because that just doesn’t happen to them and they don’t know what to do.

What about when we just cannot move away?  Perhaps it’s a neighbourly dispute.  We get creative and consider how else we can remove ourselves from the situation.  Can we remove our fear, our expectations?  Are we seeing them as the powerful one and ourselves as powerless?  How can we change that narrative and create a new self-narrative where we empower ourselves and disempower them? 

Can we be an energy-ninja and manifest an energy of invisibility around ourselves?  I use this and it works, it’s as though we are no longer going around with a target on us, we go under the radar.  Opposition is a template we carry inside ourselves.  Lack of opposition can be our template instead, if we embrace it.  The best advice I can give is don’t oppose. Don’t personalise. Stay in adult mode and don’t get emotional. And send out love to your opponent because it’s going to be healing for you and them if you do.

If there’s a word that describes Ananda’s offering to humanity, it’s power. Everything comes through so powerfully. If there’s a word that describes what brings that power through, it’s love. Ananda embodies a foundation of love and love is the vehicle that transports all she does. Ananda Amenet is a lightworker and darkworker. She walks as confidently in the shadows as she does in the sun. She knows that the shadows contain the greatest gifts and that they are created from the light. Without light, there are no shadows. Her work is rooted in truth. Her role of service is dedicated to helping others become the truth of their being, which means embodying their soul on Earth and moving forward on their journey of fulfilment. She has been gifted with extraordinary skills and abilities; an intuition as sharp as a razor, a channel as wide open as the night sky. An innate understanding of energy that enables the most profound relationship with the invisible world all around us, the world of spirit. And the ability to heal what is ready to be healed. She knows how to call in the invisible world and deliver healing to support your journey to fulfilment. She sees what others don’t see, she knows what others can only guess at. Ananda brings divine magic to all she does and invites you to engage with magic too. If you step forward to work with Ananda, you are opening up to transformation. You are inviting an acceleration of your growth and are likely to experience fundamental changes in your life, not always what you were expecting, always what you needed most. Ananda is a vehicle through which spirit moves, so you are really engaging with the universal energies and divine source that moves through her on your behalf. You are inviting their participation to answer your questions and bring the support and healing you are ready to embrace. Ananda has travelled through sixty years upon the Earth, hers is a story of being unwanted, unloved, through adoption, abandonment and rejection. She had to fight to survive abuse and learn to find her truth. She did it the hard way. It was the way that was needed to ensure she understands you and your journey, for she knows that you have walked through some dark shadows too. Ananda knows you have a story of struggle and growth, sometimes it feels too much to bear, sometimes it’s like being on top of the world. She can truly say she has been there too. She has the eyes to really see you. She has the ears to really hear you. She can look into your heart and see the soul that you are. She will help you remember who you are, that you are a being of love made of light. When everything is taken away from us, even love or worthiness, we have no other option but to go on a journey of rediscovery until we remember our truth. Our truth is that we are divine beings, the embodiment of love. The only way to embrace that truth is to walk through the dark shadows until we claim it all.
