Guilt is energy run amok. Perhaps guilt comes about through the twisted thought that feeling guilty is a deserved response to a horrible choice we have made in the past. Perhaps guilt is born when we have the feeling that we have let another person down. Guilt can certainly surface when we know we have been seriously unkind or mean to another person or when we have indulged ourselves in ways that are bad for us.
Whatever its origins, Dr. David Hawkins author of Power vs. Force says it is next to the lowest of all our emotional energies in vibration, just above shame. Thus guilt is a energy drain on our being, physically, emotionally and mentally. Guilt is an emotion we have to chose to have and continue to hold and strengthen, by giving our power to it.
Elise is a medical intuitive. She gives readings for people as a service for which she charges. Early in her career, Elise had a reading with a male, mid-sixties client and sensed energy imbalances on his arms. She told him he had skin cancer and in this case, she was wrong about that diagnosis. This was shared with her through an angry email which the client sent to her after he had had a skin biopsy taken of the places in question. The client suggested she stop her readings if she was going to cause such upset for no reason.
In working with Elise five years later, she was still carrying deep guilt about this client. Elise was fearful about fully exploring and using her talents because she had been inaccurate other times as well. This guilt was seriously interfering with her practice and desire to serve others. My question to her was if perhaps she was picking up on cancer from another area of the client’s body. She had had that very thought herself after the angry email arrived though with no way to pursue it. Further, the client’s biopsies would have required a doctor’s approval so the client’s anger was somewhat misplaced.
When Elise asked in earnest for forgiveness for the impact of the inaccurate readings she had given in the past, the presence of guilt in her energy field cleared completely. Then Elise was able to develop new information, safe-guards and protocols for the readings she wanted to offer. Elise’s taking on of the guilt was due to her own insecurities about her gift of intuition. This is precisely why this situation was attracted to her, so these insecurities could be healed and she could move on. It took 5 years to completely heal but that is a short time in eternity.
Where in your life are you taking on guilt? Guilt is never useful and often masks the real steps that need to be taken to correct a situation. Even if you feel guilty and responsible for your parents’ divorce or you lied or cheated and got some reward you did not earn, guilt serves no good purpose for anyone. There is always an energy of the Light which will completely heal the feelings of guilt and remorse. In Elise’s case, she needed to ask for forgiveness and receive it, in order to release the guilt. In feeling guilty about one’s parents’ divorce, it is highly likely that shame about our own behavior or acute loss around the family unit is fueling feeling guilty about such a situation. Misplaced energies can result seemingly in feelings of guilt. If guilt lingers as a result of lying and getting some reward we have not earned, questions of self-worth and personal integrity can also be stirring the pot of guilt.
Remember, we take on guilt from a place of imbalance and we can set it down when balance is restored. Search for the real feelings and blocked energy masquerading as guilt. There are always reasons we have chosen to hold onto guilt feelings. Guilt is something we allow in our energy fields and it does not support any good thing at all. In fact it is a major drain on our overall energy. Guilt is a misplaced thought fueled by emotions of regret.
If you are feeling guilt energy, open a Sacred Space and ask yourself:
Why am I holding onto this guilt energy?
Is there something I need to ask forgiveness for?
Is there some other energy I am carrying which is fueling or sustaining this guilt energy?
What benefits am I getting by holding onto this guilt energy?
Then go into Silence and sit with Divine Knowing/Ascended Masters/All That Is, with these questions presented. When you have done that, go about your life and wait until the desired insight is revealed to you. It will present when you are ready to hear it. The goal of identifying guilt energy is to ultimately release the blocked energy behind the feelings of guilt so that the guilt can also be released.
When you are ready to release blocked energy and guilt, ask Divine Presence:
to clear all blocked, stuck energy and feelings from you energy field, masquerading as guilt
to clear all the guilt energy from you field
for forgiveness for all the pain you have caused self and others
to witness the thanks you are feeling for Divine Support
