The Mind is like a Sewer, Part 1

The beauty of this process

Hello dear readers, my name is Alexis Shaffer and the beloved people of this newspaper have invited me to share my experiences with you.


The beauty of this process is that it is so simple, it doesn't require any effort and it is available to all of those who wish to awaken to the great abundance of Grace direct from God. Diksha is a transfer of energy, a phenomenon of Grace, which creates an opening through which you can experience the true desires of your heart: Love, God, Joy, Peace, Healing… directly and completely.

You, your freedom and your liberation is what is most important to me.

These are some experiences from people who have received Diksha.


My Beloved Alexis-
My Dad- Woody - underwent brain surgery yesterday in Scottsdale -Osborn & Scottsdale Rd hospital @ 81 years old due to bleeding in his head. Please send your Grace, he is a wonderful soul.
As always and with great love and respect-
Yours eternally-
Scott

My Angel-
Thank you so very much for the Diksha. My Father was in horrible shape this morning, breathing tube down his throat, hands tied to the bed to stop him from pulling anything out or off from all the machines, much pain, looking simply awful. The Doctors were on an hour by hour basis with him and were not sure when the breathing tube could be removed, days they thought, it was looking grim.
At 11:20 he opened his eyes, freed his right hand, and pulled the breathing tube out!! (Freaking out all of the nurses and Doctors as bells and sirens rang in the ICU neuro unit) and began what has been an AMAZING day of recovery. Tonight when I left he was talking, eyes open, and he even laughed at a joke I made.
Sweet Alexis, thank you and AMMA & Bhagavan for your Grace and energy. Its hard to thank you on his behalf but please understand the love that is sent your way tonight.
As always, yours eternally -Scott

"The Diksha experience is as natural as feeling the wind... the difference is I had never felt the wind blow within my soul. It is a truly refreshing experience."

The Mind is like a Sewer
by Kiara Windrider

“The mind is like a sewer. “We cover it up with a golden lid, but the stink comes through anyway. It fills the entire house, but we are so busy admiring the golden lid that we don’t perceive it. We do not know who we are. The lid is composed of other people’s concept of ourselves, which is the only way we know to refer to ourselves. We get attached to these images of ourselves.”

“Instead of cleaning out the sewer”, he continued, “we keep staring at the golden lid, which only takes us away from what we know ourselves to be, all the miserable, self-serving, loveless insecurities, comparisons, judgments, lusts, and pain that we try so desperately to cover up and mask. Someone tells us how helpful we’ve been, so we try and go around helping everybody, however empty we feel, just so we can feel good about ourselves. We believe we are nasty, so we project that out into the world around us, so people will treat us like we believe we deserve to be treated. We are always reinforcing our concepts about ourselves.”

“These concepts are like a dead rat in the middle of the room. We sweep it under the rug, but the stink is there. So we cover it up with a bigger rug, or spray perfume into the air, but eventually the stink will come back even stronger. We need to find the rat and remove it.”

“The biggest stink comes from our concepts of spirituality and enlightenment. We substitute the experience of enlightenment for concepts of enlightenment. We think enlightenment is saintliness, so we try to move towards saintliness. We think enlightenment is knowledge, so we try to move towards knowledge. We think enlightenment is perfection, so we try to move towards perfection. We lock ourselves up in the prison of our own mind – all our concepts, expectations and ideals.”

“When the Diksha is given it has to break its way past all your self-concepts. If you can begin emptying out these concepts, and honestly witness the truth about yourself in your unenlightened state, that will help. Start looking at your masks and cover-ups, all your manufactured emotions, all your self-reproach, all your insecurities. It is only when you authentically see yourself for what you are that the grace can come.”

“When we see ourselves in our vulnerabilities, when we allow our deepest fears to surface, we are no longer dangerous to ourselves or to others. Paradoxically, it is only when we accept our ugliness that we can be truly free. We become like a little child. We no longer need the golden lid to cover up the stink, and can go clean up the sewers instead. This is what the first couple Dikshas will do,” added our guide. “They will help you open up the sewers”.

“Cleaning them out is simply a matter of honest observation. It is like peeling an onion. The onion is being peeled, but even when you get to the bottom, the peelings are still there. Enlightenment doesn’t mean the onion disappears, it means there is no concept of an onion left to hide behind. We see our fears, but they do not rule us, we see our lusts but don’t cover up, we see our insecurities, but accept them.”

I invite you to receive Smarana Diksha (Diksha transmitted long distance) every Sunday at 11am CA time. You only need to please sit quietly with closed eyes from 7 to 28 minutes breathing into your heart space and requesting that the Divine Presence fill you completely healing your mind and body. Enjoy!!
As myself and many other Diksha Givers are sending Diksha with much love.

I love you all and send you BIG HUGS full of Love.
