Conscious or not, destruction makes space for new creations

Though conscious destruction can often be a bit easier, destruction at any level paves the way for something new to come into being.

There’s always been a whole lot of both kinds of destruction happening. There is also a third kind, destruction you have no control over. Earthquakes, tsunamis, and the like fall into this category.

Unconscious destruction includes the destruction of our environment. It is an unconscious act even though some have willfully added to the destruction, or risked doing so, out of laziness and greed. This kind of destruction is often very painful to large groups of people. From this pain a new consciousness, a spiritual evolution, can come into being.

You have both created and destroyed throughout your entire life, either consciously or not. It’s a great habit to get into, the letting go of the old energy and ways that no longer work for you.

You may be in the process of destroying an old identity, a way of seeing yourself. This kind of letting go has deep ramifications, lasting effects. Once you begin to drop an old way of seeing who you are, or think you are, your whole life changes. Everything you once did or had that was based on the old way of being simply cannot sustain itself anymore. It all just has to go. Guilt is pointless here, you are changing who you are.

If you want to redefine how you see yourself, and know yourself better, pay more attention to how you really feel and what you honestly want in your life. This will help you to see if you’ve been holding yourself back in any way out of the fear of destroying something that others would like to keep the same.

Not everyone embraces change the same way, or even wants change at all. That’s okay. If you’re having a tough time letting go of something, you are hitting resistance to change, and you can move past it and decide for yourself.

Here’s a simple exercise to help you do this: clean out your stuff. Sell it, give it away, recycle it, throw it out. Notice what you’ve held onto, and make room for new energy to come to you.

  1. Love this post! It’s hard to accept destruction that isn’t conscious as a good thing. But most of us can look back on our lives and can point to a moment where something was destroyed and see some good that came of it.

    • Debi, I’d agree with this one! Sometimes the only way anything even gets destroyed is by being unconscious. It’s too painful to know in advance, it’s like trying to cut off your own arm or something. But once it’s done, it’s done. Kind of like when someone dies; what they have left behind allows for new understandings, new growth and epiphanies among the living.

      • I had never thought of it that way — about some destruction happening unconsciously because it’s too painful to do otherwise. Now that’s an epiphany!
