Relationships - Dark Contracts
reflect the mood of the gothic, a sort of nebulous dark cloud or
fogginess that can surround and permeate a beings energy, consciousness
and vibrational fields. It is those areas that block the spiritual sun
of higher consciousness from fully shining from within your core out
into your world. "Shadows" are identical to ones' "blind spots", as
your conscious mind cannot see through them. This condition often can
be attributed to and created by the "split off" aspects of the psyche
or "Shadow Self"... those unrealized and hidden feelings, motivations,
dreams, and fears that - when you least expect it - jump out from some
hidden closet inside and say or do something that is so out of
character - this is the uncontrolled release of the suppressed
sub-conscious. People who drink alcohol or take certain drugs may
experience this phenomena, often having no recollection of what
happened the next day... it is as if that memory was gone, out of
sight, didn't happen, lost... but it has been tucked away again, safely
in the "closet of the subconscious" (with your other skeletons).
through hypnosis, suppressed memories held within the subconscious
(even those from past lives) can be retrieved and relived. The
inadequacy of this method (if used alone) is that there usually is no
resolution or clearing of the negative energies surrounding these
experiences. You may move into a place of awareness of some pretty
nasty events and feelings that you have been through in the past - and
this may be a good first step for some people to wake up with - but
then what? Since all these experiences are being held within the energy
matrix of the being (on one level or another) just to be aware of them
may not be enough to clear them. The initial onset of trauma of a
certain event (on a conscious energetic level) may have been so
painful, confusing and overwhelming, that the soul chose to suppress or
compress it all into the subconscious (like placing a lot of
information into a "compression zip drive"). At the time of its
occurrence, the soul may not have had the energetic, spiritual,
psychological resources to turn the information and energy of the
trauma into something useful (nor may it have those resources even
now). By the time this event is long over - even if the soul is now
willing to reclaim its power and free up its "disc" space - ones
personal psychic energies may be so wrapped up in supporting these
unconscious holding patterns, that there is no available psychic energy
left to transform (or "decompress") it back into energy and
consciousness. Besides, in the process of suppressing or
rejecting your experiences, you have broken or "disassociated" yourself
from any conscious-energetic links you may have had to it (burning your
bridges so to speak) thereby eroding any chance of reclaiming the
powers imbued into your experience. The easiest (and most expedient)
solution to reversing this situation is to find a healer who can assist
you into "un-zipping" your subconscious and "re-associate" you with
your lost self.
is a law of physics which states that "energy cannot be created or
destroyed, only transformed from one form to another". The dark shadow
stuff is like a piece of wood - there is tremendous "potential" energy
stored within it, but in this dense form it will take a tremendously
powerful, spiritually "kinetic" energetic catalyst or event to
transmute the "wood" (all your suppressed and condensed experiences)
back into its original form as pure light energy (and if the wood is a
big log, then it has to be broken up into little tiny pieces before it
can burn). It is said "it takes money to make money", and it would also
be accurate to say that "it takes energy to release energy". So the
question is - where do you get the extra energy to catalyze and
transform yourself with? Again, the easiest (and most expedient)
solution is to find a healer who can add his spark (or torch) and
"catalyze" you into transforming your subconscious "logs" (shadows)
into a burning flame.
The good news is that (according to these same laws of physics) all the
energies and efforts that you put into the transformational equation
you will get out - it all ads up in the end - there are no wasted
energies, there are no wasted efforts.
matter how spiritually advanced or clear a person may think they are,
we all have our “blind spots” – those
unconscious areas of our energy field where we have stored our
“nasty” and unpleasant “stuff”
- that “shadow self” which we are in denial about
and avoid at all costs.
However, this (and more) is all part of the game of being human - we
get "stuff" to work out. So like it or not, we have to deal with it the
best way we can, either by ourselves, or with the help of others.
less you be judged"
"Beware the beam in your own eye"
you judge or condemn about yourself or others is submerged and stored
into the repository of your body-mind-energy fields. This dark area and
its vibrationally dense energies are known as the "shadow". The
consciousness attached to this “shadow” (those
subconscious/unconscious states of the ego-mind) are called the
“shadow self”. The tendency or natural inclination
of this “shadow self” is to "project" what resides
within that “shadow” out onto the world and towards
those people who are in it (thus, “laying your
trip”, “throwing your sh-t”).
And when you and looking at the world from behind your shadow,
it’s like wearing dark sun glasses - everything you see
appears to be dark. Over time, if you didn’t know this
darkness was caused by the glasses worn (the shadow) eventually you
would believe that the world was dark. Unfortunately, projections of
the “shadow self” are very common and is one of the
most insidious saboteurs of healthy loving relationships.
is illustrated in the meaning of the word "scapegoat". The scapegoat
concept originated in biblical times where every year the priests would
mysteriously gather up the "sins" (shadows) of the people... and
project (transfer) them upon a goat who would then be let loose into
the wilds. Jesus did this with someone whom a legion of entities had
possessed, transferring them to pigs ("scapepig"... escape-pig...
“escaping”? Interesting study - the evolution of
all have this ability to project, dump or transfer... the unwanted
energies and aspects of ourselves upon others, making them our
scapegoats. To differing degrees of "success", some of our projections
may just touch the periphery of another person’s energy
consciousness field and bounce off, and other times it can penetrate
much deeper into the very heart of that person and stay rooted. If an
individual has an intact and healthy sense of self, as well as a very
strong energy field (without any holes or tears) can walk away from
this encounter unscathed. Whereas another person who has a shattered
sense of self, a lowered level of awareness, and a weak energy field
(with many holes and tears) may be vulnerable to such attacks,
inadvertently taking this stuff in.
Another example of this “projecting” is found in
co-dependent relationships. Irregardless of your outward sex, everyone
carries within them some innate qualities and mental ideals of both
"male" and "female". However, our culture has its own ideas what men
and women are to look and act like. To fit society’s model, a
woman may reject or dissociate herself from her "masculine" qualities
(such as strength, logic, reason, intellect) and "project" them out
onto her "outer man" (who may either be a real or imaginary person).
Likewise, a man may do the same with his own "feminine" qualities (such
as being loving, gentle, compassionate, feeling, nurturing) and in turn
project them onto his “outer woman”. Some segments
of society have long indoctrinated us into believing that this is
normal, whereas it is quite the opposite - being the epitome of self
"disempowerment" (but perhaps that is what these same segments of
society are trying to do - disempower us?). This pattern will always
set us up for a big disappointment – no one can honestly or
consistently take on or manifest these aspects of our self that have
been rejected and projected out. This "trade off" (a "karmic contract"
or “agreement” of sorts) defines co-dependent
relationships. Unfortunately, if these original qualities are not
restored to us and fully embraced, in time, this hole in the psyche
will be filled up with something that doesn’t belong - a dark
shadow or simulacrum of its former self - perhaps devolving into an
independent "Shadow Self" with a consciousness, ego and will all its
own. Since these shadow selves usually reside on the periphery of your
conscious awareness (and to some degree, are a part of, yet separate
from your energy field) you may have no clue that you even have a
shadow self. However, others can more easily be aware of and be
affected by your shadow (especially when it is being projected onto
them). Additionally, since this shadow often precedes you (standing
between you and the world) another’s perceptions of you may
be tainted as they look at you - seeing this shadow instead. Since
these aspects were created by you and are still a part of you, you
ultimately have karmic responsibility for them and all that they do.

later is where the phrase "selling your soul" comes from.
The main difference I see between bad and evil contracts is in the
degree of how much of your self you gave or traded away. People in
codependent relationships hardly get to the point where they give up
the depths of their very soul to one another, giving instead psychic
aspects, energies or qualities of ones self.
Don’t get me wrong here - one may give fully of ones love and
share the depths of ones soul with no problem, but if you actually
“give up” your actual heart and soul into another's
control - this is planting the seeds of a dark contract, certainly over
time - demonic control. Fortunately, this is not an easy thing to do...

you were one of these souls who had given up your heart and soul over
to another being (for whatever reason) it may not have felt problematic
to you at first - since you were a willing participant in the deal, you
got what you wanted - ignorance and death (i.e. blindness, numbness,
insensitivity). Since the universe abhors a vacuum, so too does our
hearts and souls (or at least the place where they used to be) and
something must eventually come to fill this place. And come it does to
fill these empty holes with layers upon layers of other things. If we
cannot feel love, we start to feel fear, anger, loathing and hate. If
we rejected our conscious truth and God light, we embraced our
ignorance and the darkest of night. Being so very far from the Heavenly
Kingdom, what is one to do but make

enemies of light become our friends. And with all
“friends”, we begin to make agreements and

tear us to pieces). Yet in our fear and ignorance, we have not many

we do, say or even think can seem whimsical – impulsive
– rising up from some unknown place for some unknown
reason... but what’s this got to do with anything?
A lot of our impulses come from imprinted mannerisms and subconscious
thoughts we have picked up from our parents, friends, teachers (anyone
from our past).
Some may be evolutionary, instinctual or organically hard wired in our
genetic patterning (given to us by our ancestors).
Some of our impulses are dietary or drug driven (drink enough coffee or
colas and you will be bouncing off the walls).
A surprising amount of our impulses comes out of thin air as a result
of influences from the spirit world (perhaps not even from our own
From my research into the paranormal and from working intimately with
individuals and groups, I have found that many people are influenced by
spirit beings who live around them in the spirit worlds. Depending on
their level (and the level from which you are open and listening from)
these spirit beings are sending either beneficial or detrimental
guidance to you. Most people impulsively follow through with these
promptings from spirit (that invisible world) never questioning where
these impulses come from - nor if it is working for or against
one have conflicting impulses? Certainly. If one impulse tells you to
turn left and another to go right, one may lead you into an accident
and the other to safety (or something like that). Our lives are
determined by these choices we make - some of them apparently quite
small (a left or a right). We need to be able to differentiate if those
impulses are coming from a clear and true place (or not). The spirit
beings around us are constantly whispering into our subconscious ears
and hearts, giving us guidance and feelings. Many of these spirit
beings have differences of opinion... and the result will be of
conflicting impulses pulling us in different directions. If some of
these impulses are coming from negative entities (or evil spirits)
around, within, or corded to us, we could be in big trouble. In order
to access the clearest impulses (the highest guidance that can work for
us) we need to be freed of these lower level entities. These hidden
impulses (and the lower spirits from which they come) have tampered
with our ability and free will to choose our own destinies. Having
sabotaged our lives - our relationships, our prosperity, our peace, our
happiness – these negative spirits even try to distort our
perceptions. They veil our sense of reality to the point where we do
not even realize who they are or what they are doing to us - we are
ignorant and do not even know it. It is imperative that we become free
of these "monkeys on our backs" so that we may get on with living as
our true Spirit Self intended.
