From the Gospel of Matthew 23:27-28:
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness. So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of rhypocrisy and lawlessness.
What is energetic coherence? It’s like asking yourself with every thought, word, action or sensation: Who am I? Does what just happened reflect who I truly am deep inside? Does this thought I just had honor my soul? How would I feel after taking this action? Would I be happy, joyful and relaxed or would I instead feel divided from within?
Being energetically coherent is not about thinking, speaking or acting in good or bad ways… It has nothing to do with good or evil. It’s about expressing exactly who we truly are! It’s living in accordance with our internal energy. So if I am fearful and my thoughts, words, and decisions reflect that fear, then I am being consistent with myself. If I am greedy for power or money and my actions demonstrate it, then it is indeed what I have chosen to be at this moment and I am being true to myself; I am truthful and aligned with my energy. However, if I react based on what happens outside of me, then I am no longer coherent with who I am. I emit something that follows the reactions and desires of other people. I become like a robot: action-reaction! Someone hurts me and in return, I react by hurting them back or holding grudges against them, not because deep down inside me, deep within my heart… but simply as a response to what just happened; I react this way simply to seek revenge. An eye for an eye! This is completely out of sync with my own essence since the source of my thoughts and actions lies outside of myself !
When we are not energetically coherent, we live for and through others. Instead of being ourselves and embracing who we are, we end up navigating in the energetic frequencies of others because we are so immersed in automatism. But is this what God wants from us? « Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy » He tells us in Luke 12:1. This profound exhortation is not for His glory… but for our joy. Because when we are off-center, what are the consequences? We have to struggle, fight to put ourselves in other people’s shoes. Everything in life becomes difficult for us. Nothing flows smoothly. Nothing that happens truly resembles us and we hardly understand the situations that cross our paths since we are very far from our hearts. It is affliction, it is human misery on a daily basis.
But the Lord wants us to be happy. By asking us to learn how to center ourselves, he calls us to a simple and fulfilling life. Yet he hardly forces us since in every situation, our free will prevails. God expects from each of us only what each one expects from oneself! Even if our wanderings break his heart, Christ cannot compel us to come back to reason. We must learn through the consequences of our actions in order to grow spiritually! However, He tells us today that we hardly need to suffer in order to draw closer to him. It is enough to learn how to be oneself, in order to dive into the light of his soul and have an accurate understanding of our spiritual position. When we learn how to be honest with ourselves, we can constantly readjust ourselves and move forward. Above all, we can live peacefully and freely while embracing who we truly are! Because then, the inner and outer become one and the same thing.
