Clearing Energy to Release Obstacles and Reveal Divine Perfection
Read Orin's Path of Self-Realization about how Orin's previous, current, and future courses are part of a well-planned and coherent program offering you a path of Self Realization. On this path you are guided to identify with the Divine Self, the inner most part of your being as who you are, rather than a separated ego-personality self. This important message from Orin provides an overview of his courses and how they fit together.
What Is the Divine Self
Orin refers to your Divine Self as the Self that exists at an even higher level than your soul. It is the Divine essence of your being, the source of all light and life within you. Your soul is closer to your personality, and is an intermediary between you and your Divine Self until such time as you are able to directly experience and realize the Divine Self as who you are.
Why Contact Your Divine Self
As you open to your Divine Self, you can receive its guidance, peace, harmony, and illuminating light. You can more easily turn away from the distractions of the physical world, and restore yourself in the light, love, and power of this eternal Self.
Through this Self, you can play in the world of all potential and manifest your highest path. This Self will reveal the illusions, desires, and attachments that keep you trapped in a lower vibration and on a lesser path. You gain a greater ability to recognize limiting, disharmonious, and restricting energies and forms. Not only will It reveal these limitations; contact with this Self will enable you to have the power, wisdom, and vision to release these energies.
Your Divine Self is always trying to reach you, to send you the power, illumination, love, and wisdom to draw higher forms, thoughts, feelings, and situations into your life. Your Divine Self is wise; it knows all, and is always showing you an easier, better, more joyful way to live.
You do not need to use will power, to struggle, to effort, or to try hard to contact your Divine Self. All you need do is set your intention and open to all the gifts of consciousness that await you as you connect with this innermost Self.
One way to contact your Divine Self is through silence. This connection happens beyond the mind. Because of this you may not feel you have made contact. Your intention to connect with your Divine Self and your receptivity to It are all that are needed to make this connection and to receive Its guidance, energy, and inspiration. It always responds to your call.
1. Start by sitting quietly. Set your intention to make contact with your Divine Self, to open to It and to receive Its energy, love, inspiration, and all the transformation, awareness, and gifts of consciousness It is always offering you.
2. Let go of any thoughts, and imagine that you are infinite intelligence, unconditional love, and all knowing wisdom, looking out through your eyes. Sense the "I" within you that is always present, that which is pure awareness.
3. Let your mind come completely to rest, to a state of inner stillness, with nothing to do or think about, even if just for a moment. Let go of any thoughts about the outer world and go within, asking for your Divine Self to draw you into Itself.
4. You can make the connection to your Divine Self even stronger by having the intention to release any thoughts or beliefs that may be an obstacle to contacting your Divine Self or to receiving Its gifts.
5. If you would like, ask for guidance, an insight, or an answer as you enter into the silence.
6. It is in moments of silence that the Divine Self can impart to you as much of Its wisdom, power, and love that you can receive. Notice what new thoughts you have after these moments of silence, calling upon your Divine Self. Doing this brings more power, love, wisdom, guidance, abundance, and spiritual vision.
7. Afterward, you may receive an inner message (it is fine if this feels like you giving yourself a message). Contact may come through a sense of energy, peace, an inner knowingness, an answer, a deeper breath, or in many other ways. It is fine if you do not have any response you can feel or identify; know that contact has been made simply through your intention to make contact. With this, some insight, extra energy, or inspiration has been imparted to you that will unfold at the perfect time.
You do not have to spend a lot of time doing this meditation; in fact it is very effective to have frequent ten or twenty second meditation periods during the day. Even pausing briefly during a busy day to get quiet and ask for energy or guidance is a wonderful way to deepen contact with your Divine Self.

Clearing Blockages with Your Divine Self
Your Divine Self is able to break through the limitations of your personality and concepts, and open you to new ways of living and being. Connecting with this Self brings a sense of flow, of moving with the current, and of being on an upward spiral.
Your Divine Self is always with you, guiding you and sending you exactly what energy you need in that moment. Your Divine Self is like a sun that shines eternally. It opens the way to a more spiritual existence. It has many gifts and blessings for you, more than you could even think to ask for.
Your Divine Self has the power to bring about the divine Plan of your life. It brings miracles, synchronicity, and all events and circumstances that are required for your unfoldment.
Your Divine Self can lead you to enlightenment, clear the way, and give you answers. It knows that lack and limitation is an illusion. It holds the blueprint of your perfection, and knows that you are perfect just as you are. Sense the power that you have at your command as the Divine Self–the spiritual power of love, wisdom, and the ability to make things happen.
Using the above process to contact your Divine Self, sit quietly, and open up to your Divine Self. Let your mind come to a state of rest, of stillness, of no thought. In a state of stillness, allow the power, wisdom, love, harmony, and freedom of your Divine Self to flow into you, restoring and revitalizing you.
Ask this Self within you to send you an idea, blessing, wisdom, or answer. Any sincere and earnest call made to the Self will always invoke Its response. Remain open to receive this response. It may come as energy, insights, a path or doorway may open up, a new opportunity may come to you, energy may be withdrawn from one path; you may receive a new vision, understanding, a feeling of peace and harmony; there are ways your Divine Self connects with you that are too numerous to list. Remain open for the response in whatever way it may come to you.
More Suggestions to ask your Divine Self to do for you as you connect with It:
- Open your heart, and release any thoughts or feelings that are less than loving to yourself and others
- Free you from all thoughts and energies that keep you from hearing Its voice, from knowing Its wisdom
- Release things that are keeping you stuck or unable to move forward in some area of your life

- Free you from fear–fear of change, of the new, of the unknown, of taking a risk, of being your Divine Self
- Liberate you from all imprisoning forms that keep you bound to a lesser path and a less joyful life
- Release all lesser energies within you that are holding you back
- Take away negative self images, self-criticism, and thoughts that you have been a failure in anything in your life
- Release illusions or mental concepts that are keeping you from seeing your next steps and higher path
- Release the cause of any negative circumstance in your life, so that you cannot recreate it
- Think of anything else and ask! There is nothing your Divine Self cannot do!
Greetings from Orin! DaBen and I welcome you to this newsletter, and are glad to have this chance to connect with you. If you are open to it and want to receive it, with this newsletter we are sending you a gift of light and energy. You can use this gift to assist yourself in rising above whatever conditions are holding you back, and to have a stronger, more sustained connection to your innermost Divine Self, the source of all good. If you wish to receive this gift, ask for it and receive it.
It is important to learn how to clear energy to sustain contact with your innermost, Divine Self. With sustained contact, obstacles and limitations fall away and you can experience the divine perfection that is possible in your life.
What does it mean to clear energy?
Throughout your day you are exposed to various energies–beliefs, concepts, thoughts, emotions, fears, worries, and cultural conditioning. I will call this energy “mass consciousness.” While these beliefs and fears may seem to come from certain people, the media, or simply arise from within you, they are impersonal energies that do not originate from within you or from any person or group. They are ancient in origin and simply exist. You can learn to recognize when you have been influenced by these impersonal energies, and then easily release them.
You can recognize when mass consciousness energies have affected you by noticing whenever you feel unfocused, fearful, irritated, angry, discouraged, powerless, or have other feelings or thoughts that are discordant, distracting, or leave you feeling off-balance. You may feel unusually tired or spacey. You can start clearing by affirming that these energies are NOT YOU. You can learn to easily clear these kinds of energies once you realize that they are affecting you.
What do clear states feel like?
When you are clear, the light of the Divine within you shines through you. You feel confident, joyful, and inspired, full of hope, aliveness, and vitality. Regrets and fears are gone. Solutions appear. What seemed like problems or obstructions disappear. Burdens fall away and you feel good about your life.
As you continue to clear, you get quicker at recognizing when you have been affected by mass consciousness thoughts and emotions. You no longer spend days or hours feeling low or discouraged. You let go of this energy and return to your balanced, clear self.
You do not think of “who” is causing this or blame others. You feel compassion for others, for you recognize that they too are being affected by these impersonal energies.
Results of clearing—Divine Perfection revealed
Clearing energies that are affecting you opens the way for your highest good to come about and for the divine perfection and highest outcome to reveal itself in every area of your life. Being in a clear state allows you to unfold the greater potential of your life. It makes it easier to recognize that which is part of your purpose and that which is not. You can create a higher and better future, with ideas and everything you need coming to you in perfect timing. When your energy is clear you are magnetic to ideas, opportunities, inspiration, abundance, and people. Disharmony turns into harmony, turmoil into peace, self-doubt into self-confidence and self-pity into self-esteem.
Your clear energy is a gift to everyone around you. As you keep your energy clear and sustain a higher state of consciousness, you offer clear energy to everyone around you. You become a source of light and stability to an ever–widening circle of people, and to all life.
Orin: Clearing Energy Meditation/Exercise
When you notice that you are not clear, use these steps to help yourself return to the naturally loving, harmonious state that is the truth of your being. This exercise is taught in depth in Orin’s Clearing Energy with Your Divine Self (DS203) audio course.
Steps you can take to clear energy:
1) Make contact with your Divine Self. Affirm that your Divine Self is your true identity. If there is some feeling, thought, physical state, or energy that is bothering you, set your intention to clear it so you can experience the joy, love, and harmony that is your natural state.
2) Connect with your Divine Self, your spirit, at the center of your being. You might sense It as a clear, brilliant, radiant light. With this connection, realize that there are no energies that are more powerful than the power of the Divine Self within you. Think of the energy you want to clear as impersonal energy that has NO power over you.
3) Sense the radiant light of your Divine Self and watch this enormous, clear, radiant light move out from the center of your being into anything that seems to block you, including thoughts, feelings, energies, memories, or beliefs.
As this brilliant light moves out from you, recognize that these unwanted energies are not real and that they have no power. They are not supported by any spiritual law. They are inconsequential, temporary, transitory, energies that are easy to dissipate and keep away when you recognize them for what they are and know how to handle them. In the light of spirit they do not exist. Watch them fade into nothingness.
4) Let the Divine perfection that the energies were hiding be revealed. Notice how wonderful you feel when these lesser energies are removed.
5) Open to receive inner guidance from your Divine Self about actions to take to unfold the divine perfection that is possible with the clearing of these energies. You may receive a feeling, sense, or mental picture; or simply find that any unwanted mental, emotional, or physical conditions have vanished.
As you practice clearing, you become able to more quickly recognize when you have been affected by mass consciousness energy, and then easily release these unwanted thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. These will no longer define or control you. You know these are NOT who you are!
Clearing work is cumulative, and as you continue you will find less energy to clear. You will experience a more peaceful and harmonious life. You will be freer to feel, think, and act as your innermost Divine Self.
