Monsters from the id – Are we creating our own demons?
By Rev. Kat Carroll
The image for this article is courtesy of MGM’s 1956 science fiction movie Forbidden Planet. It represents a monster that was created out of one man’s ego and fear and was made manifest by alien machinery left on this ‘Forbidden Planet’. The Monster in this movie was unleased via subconscious fears and desires from one man’s mind or, the id.
I also chose to use this image in consideration that the demons and monsters that people feel they are confronted with may in fact be the manifestations of their own troubled hearts and minds, either individually, or as a collective. The term for manifesting non-physical entities (good or bad), is called Egregore, and is mentioned in the book of Enoch.
As a minister, I’ve done considerable reading of biblical and spiritual texts, and also looked into how they have been changed and manipulated over hundreds of years. Why would the general public be told they should not attempt to talk with spirits, conjure or have anything to do with astrology and magic, when religious and world leaders themselves use those very tools to control humanity, get rich and maintain power? Even King Solomon conjured demons to build his temple! In today’s world, technology is the tool for good or evil influencing the way people think and believe. On the good side, it has increased how fast we can share information around the world that helps others.
Praying and meditation are methods used to connect with beings in higher dimensions, be it angelic, ET or ascended masters. These positively aligned beings also try to work with us, but they can be blocked when a person is still living in lower emotional states. We can stay positive and focus on our virtues or fall into what are called the seven deadly sins.
Was information removed, banned, or occulted (hidden) to keep us from exercising the power of our mind? If we can harness that power for good, we wouldn’t need governments, churches, and laws to dictate our behavior. They wouldn’t be able to tell us what to believe, buy and do with our body, right? On the flip side, those not in full control of their subconscious or heavily influenced by lower vibrational thoughts and feelings, (or dark entities), could manifest something less than desirable in their world.
The bible has two interesting views on this. The Old Testament states we should not make attempts to speak with the dead feeling that they were all evil.
He [King Manasseh] sacrificed his sons in the fire in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, practiced sorcery, divination, and witchcraft, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD, provoking him to anger. (2 Chronicles 33:6, NIV)
The New Testament reveals that the Holy Spirit, not spirits of the dead, will be our teachers and guides:
“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” (John 14:26, NIV)
It’s becoming clearer that many are now noticing they have abilities they’ve never before experienced. I hear daily mentions of downloads and channeled messages and hopefully, they are coming from Holy Spirit(s). It’s important to set your intentions to only receive information from sources that have your best interest at heart and serve the light.
Another reason for increased abilities may have much to do with the highly energized bubble the entire galaxy is going through at this time. It is also the end of an era, and the beginning of a new one, The Age of Aquarius and in Hinduism, the Satya Yuga. According to them, the Satya Yuga is known as the age of truth, when humanity is governed by gods, and every manifestation or work is close to the purest ideal, and humanity will allow intrinsic goodness to rule supreme. It is sometimes referred to as the “Golden Age”.
The age of Aquarius is demonstrated with astrological alignments – When the moon is in the 7th house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars – Image courtesy of Claudio Silvaggi of iyoutome on Facebook and YouTube. We are on the cusp of great changes and we can see them taking place now! Our sun is also becoming more active which is known to raise consciousness. This is the [real] dawing of the Age of Aquarius – Let the sun shine, let the sun shin in…. 54 years after this song was created, I believe we have finally arrived!
Perhaps we never used our gifts in the past because we were told not to, or may not have known it was a possibility. That’s where Prepare for Change is trying to step in, lifting the veil and pulling the proverbial mask off agendas, such as Covid-19. We also feel it’s of vital importance that all we do is in service to others, and not self, or ego.
We’ve shown in various public offerings such as, distance healing, remote viewing, seeing blindfolded, and the power of mass meditation, that you do indeed have more power than has been acknowledged in mainstream or religious teachings. It’s all about harnessing the power of your thoughts then using “the force”, for good! If those thoughts and feelings you have are negative, you could be under the influence of something you don’t want in your life. Living in “what if” scenarios rather than the moment is also detrimental. Work with what you have in the present moment and don’t project your fears and judgments onto others. Be grateful for what you have that it may become more abundant. We reap what we sow in the world.
When we don’t take responsibility for our words, thoughts, and actions, and we have wronged another, or our self, it could manifest as guilt, pain, fear, jealousy, or worse. When we rationalize our misdeeds and words rather than apologize and release, it can fester in the subconscious, invading our dreams and thoughts. Many fears are born of misconceptions and misperceptions (and sometimes out and out lies, i.e., politicians and world leaders). This may have a lot to do with how you were raised by your family, schools, military, religion and what you watch for news and entertainment. It’s important to seriously reflect on how we respond to situations that trigger us, creating that monster that is directed to a family member, friend, or business peer.
I believe a lot of the so-called monsters people encounter as hauntings or spiritual attacks could be just that, the monsters of the id. These are the fears that we need to examine closely and discover what’s really driving those feelings. This is part of the shadow work each of us must do to heal from traumas imposed by society and family, (unknowingly passing on what they were taught or experienced), as well as those traumas we have imposed on others and ourselves, that leave a mark on our heart.
Carl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who founded analytical psychology. He wrote extensively about the “Collective Unconscious” and how it is associated with archetypes, one of which is the Shadow. “The archetype of the shadow is comprised of repressed thoughts, instincts (sexual, aggressive, and other types), desires, and weaknesses, to name a few”. This is similar to Freud’s concept of the personal unconscious.”
According to Jung, “The Shadow is the part of the Self that we find unacceptable and that we only uncover through the negative characteristics that we project upon others. He considered accepting the Shadow as a formidable challenge, but necessary to gain self-knowledge.”
Mainstream media has become a source of evil by using the power of our subconscious against us. This has been done by planting seeds, (often fear based), espousing end of the world scenarios such as climate disaster, pandemics, incoming comets, war, scarcity (food, water, fuel/energy). When it’s repeated often enough in the news, many start to believe the story. If allowed to manifest, it becomes history. This is the perfect storm for manifesting something we don’t necessarily want in our reality, but we may, as a collective, be manifesting a negative reality based on false information. But how are we to know? My answer to that question is to do your own research. Double check what your told against various sources and reports (not just using the headlines as your search parameter).
Hopefully, there are enough awake souls that understand the gig and they won’t be manifesting zombies, murder hornets and an alien war!
Much of what we have seen in the news or heard in the scary reports has been debunked. Take climate change for example. Al Gore was one of the first to capitalize on climate concerns (never let a crisis go to waste) who had an instructor in high school who got a lot wrong when talking about global warming. He didn’t consider natural cycles which are proven through the study of ice cores, or the fact that plants thrive on carbon dioxide (photosynthesis) and give us oxygen in return for absorbing carbon from the atmosphere. The oceans do the same and occupy a greater area of the planet then all the continents. Al made a number of predictions that never happened.
Yet we are told we should be taxed for our carbon footprint. We are told, it’s humanity’s fault that the world has heated up a degree or two and it could destroy the planet. They speak of animals going extinct without discussing the many new species being discovered, and that may have actually evolved from the last. This may be happening to us as well.
What about all the planets in our own galaxy that are heating up as well, becoming brighter and developing cloud cover from the increased moisture being released into their atmosphere? They don’t have cars and cattle, but they too are heating up. It’s all part of a natural cycle. It has a lot to do with the area of space our entire galaxy is travelling through at this time; an energetic field or gas cloud that’s affecting everything and everyone, but not necessarily in a bad way.
This new incoming energy effects all life. The sun itself now in its new cycle is causing evolutionary changes in consciousness. Many are experiencing ascension symptoms but overall, feel more contentment and peace. We also see people who are not prepared for the amount of incoming energy becoming more unhinged. Their darker sides appear be fighting the natural evolutionary change of advancing to higher dimensional thinking and being in service to others. This manifests their inner monstrous ego. Do we want to manifest more problems on the world? Are the raging storms and unusual weather patterns of 2022 and early in 2023 all part of our worries and fear of change being made manifest?
When it comes to relationships and how we treat each other, most of the arguments and fights are based on some form of fear or feeling of lack. According to Eckhart Tolle,
“The body cannot distinguish between actual reality, and an event that’s happening, and what the disturbance in the mind is being or saying, the experiences of unhappiness and suffering. When you have fearful thoughts, the body reacts to every fearful thought… And that’s an emotion”.
“The body reacts with an emotion; the emotion you feel in your body… The body cannot distinguish any obvious difference between a judgment of there being a disturbing experience, feeling or event or a disturbance of thought, so when the forms of these become the thoughts and the emotions of, “I am in danger. Then, seemingly, “there is an actual danger here.”
“Self-knowledge is the most difficult knowledge. It’s easier to see it in others. But if you can discover, even in the midst of a certain thought appearing in your mind, realizing, “Oh, that’s all just, thoughts I’ve had; these similar thoughts; for years. They come again and again and again.” And so there you are there is an observing presence. And that observing presence isn’t a thought… It’s just the ability to realize that there is a voice in your head and that there are thoughts. So, you’ve finally discovered that you, as with most people, live with a muddled mind; a cluttered mind”.
If we fail to do the shadow work of revealing our subconscious fears and replacing them with positive self-affirmations, we could cause a multitude of health issues, mental, physical, emotional, and relationship problems that harm ourselves and others, all due to subconscious fears, desires and insecurities. Thus releasing… the monster from the id.Let’s look at some of the subconscious emotions and desires that may lead us into scarcity-based actions/reactions and how they apply to world events and our personal life.
Lust – Lust or lechery (Latin: luxuria “carnal”) is intense longing. It is usually thought of as intense or unbridled sexual desire, which may lead to fornication (including adultery), rape, bestiality, and other sinful and sexual acts; oftentimes, however, it could also mean other forms of unbridled desire, such as for money, or power. Henry Edward Manning explains that the impurity of lust transforms one into “a slave of the devil”.
Have we seen plenty of this occurring with celebrities and athletes as well as being exposed in world leaders, politicians, and businessmen, and even some in the clergy. This was revealed in what transpired with Jeffrey Epstein and all who partook at his island or any of his private estates. More of this information is coming forward on a nearly daily basis.
Gluttony is consuming more than your need and is also related to those who take more of anything for themselves while ignoring those who go needy and hungry.
In a world where politicians and big businesses make exorbitant amounts of money, why is there so little to give back to people in dire need, homeless and hungry?
Greed also known as avarice, cupidity, or covetousness, is a sin of desire like lust and gluttony. However, greed (as seen by the Church) applies to an artificial, rapacious desire as well as the pursuit of material possessions. Thomas Aquinas wrote: “Greed is a sin against God, just as all mortal sins, in as much as man condemns things eternal for the sake of temporal things.”
The world that has become extremely materialistic. It’s easy to see how the use of ads on TV and every social media app have been used to entice people to buy more than they need. It is the ultimate in temptation dangled in front of you.
Edward Bernays used propaganda advertisements to get the American public to accept participation in a WWII. He also profited by helping companies sell addictive and cancerous cigarettes and many other products. Propaganda continues to be used to make you feel the need to buy certain item to be considered cool or beautiful, or that you need the best or the newest gadget.
Propaganda was used to make the vaccinations look safe and to push people into taking them using fear of losing their freedoms and jobs if they did not comply. Big corporations made millions in profits over the suffering caused by the Covid Agenda, with lockdowns and business closures that only benefited conglomerates like Costco and Amazon, not to mention the pharmaceutical companies!
Corporate greed use of propaganda has led to people going into huge amounts of debt that many find they can’t pay back in a collapsing economy. We need to be aware of these tactics and show a modicum of restraint. Will this item really help and was I looking for it, or was it placed before me as an enticement to spend money?
Sloth (Latin: tristitia, or acedia “without care”) refers to a peculiar jumble of notions, dating from antiquity and including mental, spiritual, pathological, and physical states. It may be defined as absence of interest or habitual disinclination to exertion.
This is a major problem in a world run by psychopaths who fail to look at the needs of their own people, especially the poor. Too many people refuse to take any kind of action to resolve issues or assume that it’s someone else’s problem. Some feel they can’t make a difference. However, actions such as writing to a local congressman, speaking out at town meetings, and forming or participating in discussion boards, like local assemblies, or the zoom calls at Prepare for Change, can be a start to resolving some of these issues. Participation in public conversations are a way raise awareness as well as to share and learn from others. The more people who are aware and exploring solutions, the faster problems will be resolved. Taking no action against what is recognized as attacks on our freedom and sovereignty is considered “implied consent”. If you don’t want to protest, at least use your voice in public or in writing.
Wrath can be defined as uncontrolled feelings of anger, rage, and even hatred. Wrath often reveals itself in the wish to seek vengeance. In its purest form, wrath presents with injury, violence, and hate that may provoke feuds that can go on for centuries. Feelings of wrath can manifest in different ways, including impatience, hateful misanthropy, revenge, and self-destructive behavior, such as drug abuse, or suicide.
Much of this behavior could be seen in 2020 through 2022 and even into 2023 as people took thier form of justice to the street, but not in healthy ways. Violence and destruction were used rather than protesting, and often, innocent people were caught in the crossfire. The acts of violence and hate were not often acted out against those who caused them rage but on anyone in thier way or who fit a certain description. It’s easy to get caught up in a group action that turns violent as the emotions of the few spark others into a similar frenzy. They feel there is safety in numbers, and they expect to remain anonymous.
Envy is characterized by an insatiable desire like greed and lust. It can be described as a sad or resentful covetousness towards the traits or possessions of someone else. It arises from vainglory and severs a man from his neighbor.
Malicious envy is similar to jealousy in that they both feel discontent towards someone’s traits, status, abilities, or rewards. Envy can be directly related to the Ten Commandments, specifically, “Neither shall you covet … anything that belongs to your neighbor”—a statement that may also be related to greed. Dante defined envy as “a desire to deprive other men of [what’s] theirs”. According to St. Thomas Aquinas, the struggle aroused by envy has three stages: during the first stage, the envious person attempts to lower another’s reputation; in the middle stage, the envious person receives either “joy at another’s misfortune” (if he succeeds in defaming the other person) or “grief at another’s prosperity” (if he fails); and the third stage is hatred because “sorrow causes hatred”. That’s a lot of loosh or negative emotion to feed dark entities and attachments!
Pride – also known as hubris or futility. It is considered the original and worst of the seven deadly sins on almost every list, and the most demonic. It is also thought to be the source of the other capital sins. Pride is the opposite of humility.
Pride is identified as dangerously corrupt selfishness, putting one’s own desires, urges, wants, and whims before the welfare of others. Dante’s definition of pride was “love of self-perverted to hatred and contempt for one’s neighbor”.
In more pathological cases, it is an irrational belief that one is essentially better, superior, or more important than others, despising their merits, and excessively admiring oneself as godlike, refusing to acknowledge one’s limits, faults, or wrongs.
Pride has been labeled the father of all sins and has been deemed the devil’s most essential trait. Pride is often driven by poor self-worth and shame. We feel so badly about ourselves that we compensate by feeling superior. We look for others’ flaws as a way to conceal our own.
Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall – Proverbs 16:18
If we don’t want to unleash our own monster from the id, (our subconscious mind), then we need to look carefully at those things which trigger us and clear out those traumas, demons, and shadows.
Put on the armor of virtues and slay your inner demon
The way to rise above the negative thoughts and influences is to embrace virtues which include charity, temperance, patience, cooperation, care, gratitude, and humility. It also includes appreciation for another’s gifts and accomplishments. If we support each other on our life’s journey and in our daily work, we will move into higher states of consciousness (ascension), and collectively, overcome the darkness and our inner monsters. This is how we move forward and create the world we wish to live in, with cooperation rather than competition and kindness and compassion for all.
Victory of the Light!
