Stress and pressure in the mental body

Question: A question about how many people today are feeling very intense mental pressure, and are having difficulty maintaining their peace and calm. The questioner mentions listening to music or radio shows to “suppress” the intense mental pressure. His question for the masters centers on whether this is just a personal issue or whether it is more widespread and tied to unease in the mental body. 


 

Answer by Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels, given at a conference in Estonia 2017.

 

Mother Mary:  We have before spoken about what we have called mental overload, or information overload. There are, of course, multiple reasons why people feel an extra tension in the mental body, but one of the primary reasons is that little device that you all have in your pocket and it gives you instant access to news from around the world. Suddenly, your mental body is asked to deal with a much larger volume of information and a much wider range of information than in previous ages. Just to categorize and file away this information takes mental effort. 

Besides that, you have, of course, a more general reason in the sense that the world for the last, over a century has become more and more mental, more and more intellectual. People know more, people are demanded to know more. The world has become so fascinated with technology based on a linear, scientific approach to knowledge that, again, peoples’ mental bodies are simply being so filled up with information. 

If you consider, for example, what the average person was required to know a hundred years ago compared to what the average person is required today, you would see that it is a much larger volume of information. There is also the greater focus on rational thinking, which, again, is a challenge for the mental body to deal with.

So many people today have questions about life. There are the fundamental questions of life, the deeper questions of life, but there are also many other questions about practical, everyday life. Because people are not trained, or made aware of their intuition, they cannot use their intuition to find answers, so they attempt to find answers through the mental body. As we have already said, there is a limit to what you can understand about life through the linear, analytical mind. 

You have many people who have risen to a level of awareness where there are certain questions about life that are important for them. They cannot fully ignore these questions. They can suppress them, put them aside, but they cannot fully ignore them. Even if they are not quite conscious of thinking about it, their mental bodies are continually dealing with these questions and seeking to come up with a rational, linear explanation. Since no such explanation can be found, this creates an ongoing tension in the mental body. 

Of course, there are various ways to deal with this. One of them is the mindfulness that has become popular in recent years. Another is yoga. Another is, of course, our teachings, invocations, and decrees. But really, the ultimate way to deal with this is to realize that there are questions that cannot be answered by the mental mind, but you have intuitive faculties so you can receive answers from a higher level. 

You see, my beloved, there are certain questions about life, such as, “Who am I?” and this question cannot be answered satisfactorily by the mental body, by the linear, intellectual mind. You can get some sense of who you are through your identity body, but your identity body is not as linear, intellectual, analytical as the mental body. It requires that you can neutralize the analytical mind in order to connect to your identity body, and, of course, ultimately you need to receive answers from beyond the material realm in order to know who you are and why you are here, and that means, again, your intuitive faculties (the nonlinear, non-analytical faculties) need to be used. 

Basically, when people are not doing this, well, that increases that tension that they feel. Many people have risen to a level of awareness where it is natural for them that they begin to deal with these questions and find a resolution to them. When they cannot, well, then all that is left is tension.
