Ukraine Russian War And The Future Aftermath

ukraine russian war

Back in 2016, while living in the UK, I have decided to abstain from the news.

It did a lot of good for my energy and my mental wellbeing. When I was asked: “How is Brexit affecting you?” I answered: “It isn’t. I have no TV, and I don’t follow the news.”

Brexit lasted longer than pandemics, and people got tired of it in the UK. Then pandemics hit, it took over Brexit on the news. The same thing happened last week with The Ukraine Russian War.

A week ago, the government abolished Covid passports in Lithuania. Suddenly the news about the Ukraine Russian war had stopped the information about Covid on media!

Having spent a few days in front of the TV following the start of The Ukraine Russian War, I became nauseous. It had opened old wounds and stored emotions.

I have decided to take a break and rebalance myself. I asked myself: What can I do to help the victims of The Ukraine Russian War?
I donated three large bags of wool blankets and pillows to Red Cross for Ukrainians. I started sending healing, and I’ve decided to exercise more and spend more time in nature. But most importantly, to spend time healing myself this week, and here’s why.

I lived half of my life in Lithuania and more than half in London, UK. I spent only two years of my life in independent Lithuania and 16 under the occupation of Russia, the former USSR. The Ukraine Russian War is a reminder of the past, the history of my country.

The former USSR had 15 soviet socialist republics, including Russia and Ukraine, with a central government in Moscow hence giving an illusion of a Russian superpower.

Russians occupied all 14 independent countries in a similar way we see the Ukraine Russian War today.

Here’re some facts from my life up to the age of 16 that you might find interesting. I hope that The Ukraine Russian war will end soon and that history won’t repeat itself.

Since Lithuania is a small country with only three mln people, it wasn’t difficult for Russians to occupy it. We hope and pray it won’t happen again.

Upon occupation, the Russian government inforced their currency.
Our government was limited and had to report to Moscow.
The Russian language was compulsory at school from the age of 10.
They’ve changed our flag and anthem and adapted it to suit their needs.
Official documents were in Russian.
In many cases, posters on shops were in Russian or both languages.
There was a portrait of Lenin and other communist leaders in the classrooms. Education curriculums included literature about Lenin’s life and the war, the history of the USSR and military training for students 17-18 yo including girls.
Teachers were following orders and weren’t keen on students who questioned the Soviet state.
Teachers were seen at churches checking on students attending holy mass. Those who attended didn’t get good grades.
Students were numbered and called by numbers to the front of the class, not by names.

The brainwashing started at an early age. People who wanted to progress their careers later in life joined the communist party.

My parents didn’t want to join, so they limited their careers.

A lot of people lost money when the currency changed. We have had four different currencies in Lithuania so far, including the euro.

How did it affect people, and how might the Ukrainian Russian war have the same aftermath?

Almost every Lithuanian family can tell a story. These are the stories of exile in Siberia, two world wars and the fight for freedom in 1991.

My family have significantly suffered financially, intellectually and mentally.
I still carry some of those wounds.

I believed that Lenin was our saviour and even cried when Russian prime ministers passed away! I must have been 4 or 5 at the time, but the media already brainwashed me at such an early age, which shows how the Russian system indoctrinated people.

As I got older, I started questioning what we were learning at school, and my father had to tell me the truth. I knew that teachers were lying to us. It became difficult at school. I lost respect for some teachers and started skipping lessons.
I didn’t want to be at school. I couldn’t wait to get out and be free!

I liked digging deep and wanted to get to the bottom of things, but I couldn’t question anything at school that involved the Russian state. I spent a lot of time with my father, who interpreted the history books for me.

We couldn’t attend church in our town. Instead, we drove to my grandmother’s and a nearby small town church some 30km away.

I wanted a new start and a clean slate when I came to England. I am sure that the Ukraine Russian war will result in many Ukrainian people feeling like I did, the urge for freedom and peace of mind.

I had no other foundation, nothing to lean on, and it felt unstable for quite a while. I was desperately looking for answers.
The questions were varied and many:
What is freedom?
Who am I?
Why me?
What am I doing here?
What’s the point of life?

These types of questions lead me onto the path of spirituality. I have reconnected with God in my way, through love, authenticity and enquiry.

I immersed myself in different teachings and cultures, which opened my mind to many possibilities. However, the old programs were still there. I didn’t know how to remove them at the time. Instead, I brushed them under the carpet, buried them deep inside myself and forgot about everything. It was a logical thing to do.

Until one day in 2015, in a classical concert in London, a musical piece from a “Nutcracker” set off a trigger, and memories started flooding in.

I saw myself dancing on stage, which I did for many years. I remembered how I was not too fond of school because of lies. I was naive to believe and angry when I found the truth.
An entire spectrum of unprocessed emotions had started flooding to the surface.
Tears were coming down my face, but a theatre wasn’t a place to cry, so I suppressed the tears and emotions and carried on with my life.

After my father suddenly died and my mother was diagnosed with Dementia, I had to travel back and forth to take care of my mother. There was no way I could hide from the past anymore.
I started processing those hidden emotions as they popped up on every road I drove and every flight I took home.

What do I mean by processing?
It’s a process where the energy stored inside the body as blocked emotion of some traumatic event comes to a surface and has to be processed and removed from the body.

The Ukrainian Russian war set off a few triggers again last weekend, but now I know how to deal with it and remove old programs. I’ll share that with you in my next blog post.

If you join my Facebook group, you’ll be the first to receive the blog post that follows next.

This week’s topic in my Facebook group is base chakra because it’s the energy Centre affected by the events today the most. It’s linked to the blog post I wrote in January The Effects of Covid-19 Pandemic on Root Chakra.

I wish strength to the Ukrainian people who are on the run for their safety and who are fighting for their country and the Ukrainian Russian war to end. Peace.
