What often keeps people tight in the box and resisting the power of transformation on the spiritual path is the need for external validation of some kind. The requirement for friends or family, for example, to respect the new you you’re unfolding into. If they’re not evolving as quickly as you, unsupportive or negative feedback can be severely limiting. Where does this need for this validation come from? Most importantly, how can we move beyond it?

Distortions of the Soul

Firstly, it’s essential to explore the nature of distortions  – old behaviour patterns we wish to either drop or realign. From the Openhand perspective, a distortion is a distorted expression of soul – because everything begins originally in the source of truth. But the soul got attached, within some emotive physical situation, the need to be loved for example, and then got fragmented into it.

You could consider the soul as a stream flowing down a mountain side. It passes over a boulder, which creates an eddy current in the flow. This then draws in debris, which constantly spins around in the eddy current. It’s a good metaphor of repetitive and stuck behavioural patterns becoming toxic and restrictive.

The crucial thing to realise, is that the eddy current originally came from truth, and contains truth within it – specifically the inherent nature of the stream. Likewise, the soul getting stuck in distortion. And until you realise and embrace that truth, then the distortion will not simply melt away. At the risk of mixing metaphors, you can’t simply throw the baby out with the bathwater. Or, you could try just dropping the hot coals, but if you haven’t processed out your reaction to the heat, you’re simply going to remanifest similar cycles just with different circumstances. Let’s figure out the truth and express it, then work to let go of the attachment within it. In which case, the eddy current will unravel of its own accord. There is no longer anything anchoring it.

Let’s explore the example of validation to illuminate what I’m saying.
