Awakening Our Truth

Ascending The Densities of Consciousness

Each thread of consciousness (our souls, over-souls, and beyond), within the One multiversal consciousness, exists in one of eight states of consciousness.  Each of these states has a unique set of characteristics, perspectives, and core beliefs that define it.  These states have also been called LEVELS because we generally progress through them sequentially.  This progression is the evolution of our soul’s consciousness, and it is the fundamental process that every Soul is undergoing and striving for — the process also known as Spiritual Evolution.  And it is the primary reason that we incarnate into physical realities like our planet Earth.  Physical experiences, and the challenges that they entail offer our souls an evolutionary fast track, and hence are greatly coveted.

Another name for the process of MOVING UP through the levels of consciousness is “Ascension.”  Ascension has been widely misunderstood — it is not about going “somewhere else” it’s about attaining higher states of consciousness wherever you happen to be.  It may feel like you’ve gone somewhere else because a change in your level of consciousness is a radical shift in perspective which alters how you perceive and create your reality.  Also, if you raise your consciousness in this life, then in your next, you will incarnate into a higher level of physical reality — one that better matches your heightened level of consciousness.

What the future holds for you depends on your state of consciousness now.
Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth

Of course, ultimately, when your soul raises its consciousness enough it will reintegrate with its Over-Soul.  Thereby ceasing Incarnation, becoming a seamless part of its Over-Soul, and contributing to the evolution of the Over-Soul’s consciousness — which is good because your Over-Soul is essentially the higher/wider level of you!

What Are Densities of Consciousness?

You may be wondering where the term “densities” which was used in the title of this article comes from and how it applies to levels of consciousness.  Density is a term that has come into common usage to refer to the levels/states of consciousness.  The origin of this term is a bit obscure and confusing.  Densities are related to the level of consciousness, and the frequency level, at which a reality is created (all realities are constructs, and all things are patterns of energy).  It’s called “density” because of a characteristic perceptual effect that’s related to the level of reality and the consciousness perceiving it.  To illustrate this let’s take the Earth as an example.

The Earth is in the 3rd density level of reality (frequency band).  At this level, everything — rocks, trees, houses, cars, etc.  — APPEAR very solid and very “real.”  They feel solid because, when two objects encounter each other they do not interpenetrate and/or pass through each other — the density of the objects “material” seems to be very high.  In the higher planes/levels/densities/frequency-bands of reality, it becomes increasingly obvious that THINGS are simply projections of the creative mind and, as such, that they are not “real” in our normal sense of the word.  In each successively higher level of reality, it becomes increasingly more obvious that only consciousness is real, and that “things” are simply the projections of consciousness, thought forms within the cosmic mind and patterns of energy.  As you move up through higher and higher levels of reality “things” appear less and less dense, and more and more able to interpenetrate and/or pass through each other.

The confusing part is that we have numbered the densities in an order OPPOSITE of the apparent density of “things” within those densities — E.G; things in a 6th density reality are actually of a lower apparent density than in a 3rd density reality.  But note that the numbering order matches the frequency level — higher densities correspond to higher frequencies.  So a bit confusing, but we are stuck with this convention.  Please note that some people use the term “dimension” to mean the same thing as “density” (although this may not be appropriate and the term might be better used for other concepts).

There are entire realities that appear to exist at particular density levels.  When this is the case, then most of the beings inside that reality will share the same level of consciousness.  Our Universe (one of many, by the way) is composed of multiple parallel realities (sometimes referred to as “planes of reality”), and you are perceiving, and hence experiencing, one of them.  There is a strong correlation between the plane or level of reality and level/state/density of consciousness of the beings that inhabit it — typically the average density of the population of the beings inhabiting a reality matches the density level of the reality.

The Densities of Consciousness

The 1st density of consciousness is the most rudimentary level of consciousness.  It is present in elemental entities like rocks, minerals, water, and air as well as simple organic biological entities such as single-celled organisms.  Everything is conscious to some degree, and this level of consciousness is like a program that was created when the system it governs was created and then runs like a machine on automatic — it is the very simplest switch-like logic of “if this, then that.”  The very simple logical processes provided by 1D consciousness are all that is required for the functioning of these types of very simple entities, and it provides the foundation from which everything more complex in our reality is built.

Most of the planets of our solar system exist at 1st density, and they are inhabited solely by entities/beings of 1D consciousness — inorganic elemental entities as well as single-celled organisms that metabolize the chemicals available to them from these entities.  It may surprise you to know that these elemental inorganic entities have higher-selves with higher level consciousness just like we do.

The 2nd density of consciousness governs a being’s choices and actions by instinct or “drive.”  On Earth, it occurs in higher animals which have developed nervous systems.  These nervous systems allow animals (including the human animal) to feel urges from their various body systems and drives them to eat, procreate, sleep, avoid or defend against danger, and all the other things that each species needs to do for its survival.  These drives happen pretty much automatically but are not absolute — they can be over-ridden.

A 2D being is not self-aware in the way that we are.  They do not have the same sense of individuality as we do — their sense of “self” as being separate from what is outside of “them” is largely absent.  There is simply the drive to respond to cues from the environment.  There is decision-making ability, sometimes fairly sophisticated, but there is not the formation of complex ideas, beliefs, or philosophies.

2nd density consciousness is the foundation upon which more advanced life-forms with higher levels of consciousness rest.

The 3rd density of consciousness is characterized by true self-awareness, and the ability to make conscious choices and formulate complex ideological concepts such as principles, philosophical frameworks, and belief systems.  This level of consciousness perceives “self” versus “other”, “me and mine” vs “them and theirs”, and conceives of “good” versus “bad.”  Hence it is the first of three levels of consciousness that are within a genre of consciousness that has been called “Duality” or “Separation” consciousness.

3rd density beings are deeply in the illusion of separation.  In the genre of Separation consciousness there is little or no awareness that All is One.  Beings of Separation consciousness see themselves separate from others, and the world as a place of limitation and scarcity.  And it’s this mindset that manifests all the greed, competition, and conflict that characterizes 3rd density worlds.  In addition, 3rd density beings have lots of internal conflict on what to believe and desire.  And this inner-conflict is reflected into their outer reality and hence 3rd density worlds are wracked with conflict on many levels, both collective and personal.

Another one of the very convincing illusions that emerges from the separation game, the game that everyone on Earth is deeply immersed in right now, is the illusion that we are at the mercy of circumstances — that we ARE NOT the creators of our reality.  And this illusion causes many to adopt a mindset that might be best called “Victim” consciousness and which manifests all the victim/perpetrator/rescuer dramas that dominate our lives, at both the personal and collective level (more about this in upcoming articles, follow the blog to stay tuned).

3rd density is the level of consciousness of many, if not most, people now alive on Earth (although many are 4th density and a few are 5th and even 6th density).  The world of 3D consciousness is complex, intricate, and often confusing and offers plenty of drama.  3rd density consciousness is also the level where a phenomenon within the psyche known as the “ego” emerges — that powerful sense of “I”, “Me”, and “Mine.”  This level of consciousness can manifest powerful resolve and will-power.  It is a level characterized by very strong Individualism and “go it on my own” and “do it my way” attitude.  Empires are built by such a consciousness when it is fully unleashed.

It is at this level of consciousness where we first see a being who might willingly choose to put himself in harm’s way over a complex ideological concept such as “fairness” or “justice”.  But it could go the other way too — a 3rd density being who decides he has been unfairly treated might choose to take from or hurt others and feel quite justified in doing so.

Our planetary consciousness is 3rd Density (at least it was until recently, now it’s shifting into 4th density) and in the past most people would reside at this level for much, if not all, of their lives.  Some people might have shifted from 3D or 4D consciousness to 4D or 5D during old-age due to the natural diminishing of the ego and shift to heart that results from the physical limitations brought on by the aging process.  Others might have made a shift to higher levels of consciousness by INTENTIONALLY choosing to “listen to their heart”, or “find their own truth”, or to love unconditionally.  Now this is all changing, at least here on Earth.  Currently our Earth reality is undergoing a “stimulus package”, that is being orchestrated from the other side, that is catalyzing accelerated “awakenings” and many people are spontaneously shifting to 4th, 5th, and even 6th density consciousness — and this is all part of the plan for the Earth game.  But back to the general explanation of the typical progression through the densities.

3rd density realities and worlds are constantly presenting the beings that inhabit them the choice of which direction to invest their energy.  They are constantly being called to choose what they will serve and what they will love.  This choice is between two diametrically opposed ways of being — Service to Self (STS) or Service to Others (STO).  When a being makes this choice it means that its mindset, and resulting choices and actions, are consistently biased towards either (1) Satisfying its own needs (STS) or (2) satisfying the needs of others and the community (STO).

When a 3rd density being ends its indecision and definitively chooses either a Service-to-Self or a Service-to-Other orientation — when they ask the questions; Who do I love?, What do I serve?, and To what will I give my energy? — and they answer with either “myself” or “others” they graduate to 4th density of consciousness.

The 4th density of consciousness is the level where the journey to becoming a truly individualized sovereign being begins.  This density still has most of the characteristics of 3rd density except that at this level the beings have polarized to one of two modes — Service To Self (STS) and Service To Other (STO).  These modes represent two polar opposites in the manner in which beings will direct their energy — essentially there is two states of 4D consciousness — 4D STO and 4D STS.

The adoption of one of these two distinct polarities — STO or STS — is what moves you to this level of consciousness.  Of course, most people who have made the shift to 4th density are not consciously aware that they have done so — it’s usually an implicit choice rather than an explicit one.  In many ways, this polarization amplifies the duality of the realities manifested by this level of consciousness.  And intensifies the many dramas that play out at this level of the game.  On worlds populated with mostly 4th density being’s victim/perpetrator/rescuer dramas are still being widely played out and greed, competition, conflict is still prevalent.

Here are examples of what polarized beings might look like.

A full-fledged 4D STO being might be a person who is working at a shelter or a community social support services in a depressed community and giving lots of their energy to helping the poor on the streets.  Or it might be a person who invests a lot of their time and energy in environmental and animal rights issues.  By their example, they offer you the choice to take a similar path.  The 4D STO polarity had been called the polarity of compassion, as this is what rules their heart.

A full-fledged 4D STS being might be one of the many self-serving power hungry people that litter our institutions, corporations, and our history.  These types of people channel all their energy towards attaining power, wealth, and influence.  And they are willing to manipulate others and destroy anyone who gets in their way if it serves THEIR needs.  They’ll often claim to be working for the greater good — serving the needs of the electorate, the shareholders, the customers, the community, or whoever they are pretending to serve.  They can be found vying for power and control in criminal gangs, corporate offices, political parties, and religious organizations.  The 4D STS polarity had been called the polarity of “power over others”, because this is what rules their minds and gets their needs served.

4th density beings, regardless of their polarity, are characterized by a strong clarity of purpose.  They have firmly adopted an orientation, and their choices and actions consistently demonstrate it.  Because their mindset is so well defined and un-conflicted they tend to drive very powerfully and effectively towards their goals — they are achievers!

The challenge for those at this density is to avoid burnout.  4th density beings tend to give all they have and then exhaust themselves and their resources.  The reason for this is simple — no system can exist in which the energy only flows in one direction.  An STO being tends to give too much and receive too little.  An STS being tends to take too much and give too little.  So both STS and STO beings find that, lifetime after lifetime, that they either burn themselves out or end up all alone with nothing.  4th density beings (and 4th density societies) can be fairly successful but ultimately their success it limited by the fact that they don’t understand one simple truth — you have to give to get, and you have to get to give.  When they finally come to understand this, then they are ready to move up the ladder to the 5th density of consciousness.

The 5th density of consciousness has been called the density of “balanced polarity”.  At this level, the ascending being will still have an STO or STS orientation, as had emerged as they entered 4th density.  But they will know that they must attain a better balance between the two by expressing more of the opposite polarity.

5D STO beings realize that they must be open to receiving from all those that are willing to give to them so that they can give their great service in a sustainable fashion.  They can become powerful change agents because, for the first time, they are channeling energies through themselves rather than simply giving from their own small store of personal energy.

5D STS beings, by contrast, realize that they must be willing to give to others, to nurture and motivate them, so that they will remain hard-working and loyal.  They become much more benevolent and might even be admired, respected, or even loved by their subjects.  Whereas 4D STS beings are likely perceived as “bosses”, 5D STS beings are more likely to be perceived as “leaders” who inspire followers and unite them with their vision.  Respected corporate CEOs and admired national presidents are great examples.

In a sense the strength of the polarity diminishes with every one drifting to a more balanced or neutral position on the scale.  Because of this, the intensity and character of the dramas manifested on 5th density worlds changes.  The intensity and prevalence of victim/perpetrator/rescuer dramas diminishes and there is more cooperation and harmony and less competition and conflict.

Since 5th density is the level of consciousness where beings grasp the universal law of giving and receiving, the understanding that energy (and abundance) flows in circles and that, for best results, you must give to receive (or receive to give).  Being in alignment with this universal law involves a fairly high degree of wisdom in managing yourself and others, and hence this level has been dubbed the density of wisdom.

At some point, 5D beings will have a realization that prepares them for the next step up the ladder of consciousness.  Eventually, after many many incarnations where they work so hard to give to the world or take from the world, to save the world or rule the world, they finally begin to see the futility of both games and all their attendant dramas.  They will eventually notice that there is one simple rule that always seems true:

What you do to another you ultimately do to yourself.

This is the point where they finally realize that the apparent separation between “self” and “other” is illusory, that in truth, All is One.  And with this realization they step up onto the next rung on the ladder of consciousness — the 6th density!

The 6th density of consciousness is the level where the STO/STS polarity completely disappears.  Regardless of which orientation a being may have adopted at lower levels of consciousness, it now dissolves.  The reason for this is that 6D beings KNOW that All is One, and hence this density is the first level in a genre of consciousness aptly called “Unity Consciousness” — a state characterized by loving acceptance of “what is” and surrender to the flow of life.  The 6th density is the highest level of consciousness that can still experience itself in a physical body.  Beyond this level, it is not possible to be attached to a dense body without dropping out of that level of consciousness.

The 6th density of consciousness is a wonderful state of existence.  A 6D being fully understands the meaning of life and the true nature of reality and are therefore able to maximize their enjoyment of it without constantly sabotaging themselves.  And as a rite of passage into the 6th density, a being fully embraces its creator nature.  And so now it only puts out what it wants back, and it therefore only gets back experiences that it desires!  Life becomes a lot more harmonious, peaceful, and abundant — a state of grace as compared to lower densities of reality.

6D beings fully understand the rules of the illusory game of physical reality that they are within and so can take the game to a whole new level!  They become master level players and can enjoy the fruits of the illusion to their fullest.  They explore, play, live, love and laugh to their heart’s content!  They are still within the separation game, but this level of the game doesn’t include fear and suffering!  Now it only includes WONDERFUL!

6D beings know they are the creator of their own reality and that their experiences are manifested by their deepest beliefs.  They, therefore, make a considerable effort to master their thoughts and choices and to release any beliefs that are attracting undesirable results — what amounts to Self-Mastery.  Complete self-mastery cannot really occur until a being attains the 6th density of consciousness.  Before being at 6th density they simply have not eliminated their inner-conflict, suffering, and pain and therefore are still unintentionally creating fear and undesirable dramas in their lives.

Below 6th density, a being’s evolution is primarily driven by its fear, pain, and suffering — by its desire to get away from undesirable experiences.  Their FOCUS is on how to avoid undesirable experiences.  And because, as a creator, what you focus on you attract and what you resist persists they can’t escape their negative experiences.

Suffering has a noble purpose: the evolution of consciousness and the burning up of the ego.
Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth

The 6D being transcends this — they focus, not on how to avoid negative experiences, but on how to attract positive experiences.  And because of this “positive” focus they no longer find themselves having “negative” experiences.

And because a 6D being is no-longer spending most of its time reacting to negative experiences a space is created to observe and reflect and begin to see things, and himself and life, as they truly are.  And he clearly sees who he is, what he wants to be, and how he wants to respond to life — he sees why he is here and what his true purpose is.  And this is when he makes his focus that of pursuing his passion and giving his “greatest gift” to the world.

The 6D beings focus becomes neither that of serving others or serving self (to give or take) but to simply to find and express their genuine self and to pursue their greatest passion, in each and every moment.  And by doing so, they are essentially giving their greatest gift to the world.  They are in graceful alignment with their highest self, and they are effortlessly going with the flow of life and hence what they choose to pursue will most certainly be needed, desired, and appreciated by the world.  It can be no other way at this level of consciousness.  Whatever they choose will be a perfect response at the perfect time for all involved because we are all aspects of the One same being and at this level, all of its parts become completely harmonized!

And so 6D beings will find themselves giving their greatest gift and will be in their highest joy.  And because “what you put out you get back” life will respond by giving its greatest gift right back to them, and they find themselves living a remarkably harmonious and abundant life.

And now instead of “negative” experiences driving their evolution, the process of mastering the skills and capacities needed to express their greatest gift become the means of their continued growth, expansion, and evolution.  When one is doing what they love they can’t help getting better at it, and ultimately they will be very good at it, so their reach will be far, and their impact will be large.  And it will become an effortless joy.

At some point in this process, it may dawn on the 6D being that all the learning, growing, and expanding he has been doing via the experiences within his physical reality are an illusory story that he has been playing in.  And he will deeply understand that there is a greater reality from which the reality he is immersed in is constructed, and the story is orchestrated.  As this realization deeply sinks in, it will nudge him up onto the next step of the ladder of consciousness — the 7th density!

The 7th density of consciousness has been called the “magical” density because, at this level, one becomes formless and beyond the illusion of physical reality.  7D beings are a part of the primal energy field from which all realities are constructed.  Beings at this level, are very close to becoming completely one with the Oneness.

At 7D beings participate in the creation of realities by directly working with the energy and the consciousness templates from which they are constructed.  Some part of every 7th density beings mind is busy with tasks essential to the very existence of physical (lower density) realities.  If it were not for their work no realities would exist at all.

Many 7D beings are carrying out the role of pattern holders or what is sometimes called “construct” holders.  Their job is to hold the patterns that construct elements of realities.  Some of these “construct holders” are holding the frames of planetary consciousness or galactic consciousness, others are holding the frame of the consciousness for the bodies of creatures (for instance, the human body), others still are construct holders for electrons, photons, and other “particles”.  Everything that exists is simply patterns of energy and consciousness controls those patterns.

But not all 7D beings are pattern holders, there are many other roles — Watchers, Speakers, Seeders, Recyclers, Interventionists — just to name a few.  And all these roles are involved; in some way, shape, or form, with making realities run smoothly.  As an example, a “Watcher” is a special kind of “observing” consciousness that narrows the huge range of possibilities inherent in the complex interactions of all these patterns into a smaller range of actualizations.

It is interesting to note that it is not possible for a 7th density being to incarnate and still remain 7th density.  In order for 7D beings to do what they do, they must, by definition, be everywhere.  And this is incompatible with imagining into existence and wearing a physical body.  One MUST lower one’s consciousness to 6th density or less to do that.

The perceptual experience at the 7th density of consciousness is very different than what we experience here in 3rd/4th density.  What seems to us to be a bunch of separate perceptual modalities, channels, and processes, are experienced as one unified process and perception.  Thinking, feeling, seeing, knowing, creating, expressing, dreaming, fantasizing, smelling, tasting — all of these are, for the 7D being — one process.  Imagine if every modality of your perception — taste, smell, visual, tactile, emotional, etc.  — were all somehow extra hues or textures added to one universal perceptual experience and you’ll get an idea of what it is like.

Imagine that there is no difference between your sensing of a thing and your creative imagination of it — that is, to see the thing is to imagine it into existence, and to see the thing change form is to imagine it’s form changing.  7D beings KNOW that things look the way they do BECAUSE they are imagining them that way.  This density of consciousness is where your will is made manifest — it is PURE MAGIC!

Beings at this level don’t really evolve or change.  There is nothing they are apart from and nothing they cannot know or experience so there is nothing more that they can become.  They simply do as they are called to and have agreed to and they do it for as long as required.  And when they are done they may choose to dive back into some deep corner of their current reality system and explore it further, or they may leave their reality system altogether for another.

When a 7D being wants to leave their system, they must lovingly release all their attachments to their creations and thereby attain perfect balance and true Oneness of spirit enabling them to step up onto the last rung on the ladder of consciousness — the 8th density!

The 8th density of consciousness is the level where you become utterly One with the Oneness.  It is the ultimate level and it is a state that is nearly impossible to describe in words — perfection, wholeness, belonging, centeredness, absolute serenity — these words just scratch the surface.  It is a state of BLISS beyond anything that you can imagine, a state of PEACE that transcends anything you have ever experienced — a state where you KNOW you are completely appreciated for WHO YOU ARE and unconditionally loved exactly AS YOU ARE.

At this level, there is NOTHING that is beyond the scope of your mind.  Your mind IS the universal mind.  You perfectly know and understand absolutely everything that ever was, is, or will be.  To inquire about something is to gain the WHOLE of the understanding of it.

In this state, it is simply impossible to have “negative” feelings about anything.  All perspectives are your perspective.  Such a complete and perfect comprehension IS BLISS.  You understand that EVERYTHING is a creative work of art and that ALL creations are your creations.  From this perspective, you can’t help seeing everything as BEAUTIFUL and LOVING all of it!  There is nothing that is incomplete or imperfect because ALL IS just as you created it — all is PERFECT.

At least it is right up to the moment that you decide to create something NEW!  And you don’t see the “new” as something better, just different — something that pleases you to create and explore.  The 8th density contains ALL realities and is, therefore, the gateway through which you leave one reality and enter another.  In the very moment that a new idea crystalizes in your mind — poof — you find yourself inside a reality at some lower density, and ready to plunge ever deeper.  And thus the game of separation and the process of climbing the ladder of consciousness begins again!

The Ascension Papers – Book 1 by Zingdad

A fascinating deep dive into everything you need to know to ascend to a wonderous new earth reality!


A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose by Eckhart Tolle

In this book Tolle shows how transcending our ego-based state of consciousness is not only essential to personal happiness, but also the key to ending conflict and suffering throughout the world. He describes how our attachment to the ego creates the dysfunction that leads to anger, jealousy, and unhappiness, and shows readers how to awaken to a new state of consciousness and follow the path to a truly fulfilling existence.


We met Joanna Ross from Universal Unity in Sedona for the 11-11 Gateway this year!

We had so much fun, Joanna booked us for a return visit for 2017

We’re also planning a trip to Tampa, FL in June of 2017!

We would love to meet you at one of our events 🙂

Moving Beyond Awakening Shock Syndrome

One of the things that I’ve noticed that seems to happen to many people early in their spiritual awakening is they become hyper-aware of all the lies, manipulation, and control that’s been going on in our world, and they are shocked and appalled — and rightfully so.  Some people get so fixated on these unsettling revelations, so obsessively focused on them, that get themselves stuck in a state that is very counter-productive that I’ve dubbed “Awakening Shock Syndrome”.  Although awareness is good, fixation is not — here’s why and how we can move beyond it.

Disturbing Truths

There’s plenty of disturbing truths to get obsessed over — “conspiracy” theories abound on the internet and in our collective consciousness;  the Illuminati control agenda, 9/11 was an inside job, manufactured terrorism, chem-trails, the UFO/ET cover-up, and more.

And there appears to be more than a little truth to much of this.  It seems that a few very dark and self-serving people within our governments, banks, and corporations have been deceiving and manipulating us for their own economic and political gain for quite a while.  The truth of much of these so called “theories” appears to be fairly well supported if you are willing to keep an open mind and follow the trail of evidence presented by those who have studied it.

Of course, you won’t find much about this in the mainstream media because these channels are largely owned by the very people that are the perpetrators of said deceptions and manipulations.

Shocked and Angered

It’s a perfectly normal reaction to be deeply disturbed by these facts, even shocked and angered.  And many of us go through a phase of intently focusing on these injustices, spending a significant amount of time reading books and articles on these topics and passionately discussing them with our friends and family.

Our focus on this seems to be encouraged by more than a few websites that routinely feature somewhat sensational articles about these issues that encourage us to remain hyper-focused on them.  While these websites may be well intentioned, there may also be a bit of “fear sells” motivation going on here.

Fortunately, most of us move beyond this phase relatively quickly, choosing instead to focus on changing ourselves and envisioning and contributing to building a better world.

Sadly, others get stuck in this phase — a malady that I’ve dubbed, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, “Awakening Shock Syndrome”.  These people let themselves fester on the injustice of it all and often let their imagination carry them away with thoughts of how the controlling ones might be plotting further dastardly deeds, and worry about dire events coming to pass.

They’ll often talk incessantly and emphatically about these subjects, feeling compelled by the need to warn us.  They tend to focus on fighting and stopping all the bad things that are happening in the world, yet they often have very little constructive or positive to say.  They seem to like to complain and blame and are hyper-focused on the evil doers and their evil ways.

Don’t get me wrong;  it’s good that we are waking up and becoming aware of the all the injustice running rampant in our world — but getting fixated on it isn’t good — or productive.  It’s distracting us from putting our full attention on envisioning and creating a better world.

Moving Beyond Focusing on the Problem

The people that get stuck in this phase lack the wisdom to realize that focusing on what’s wrong is, at best, an ineffective way to create change.  Focusing on problems rather than solutions and fighting the old rather than building the new is a well-known trap of thinking.

Anyone who understands and embraces the metaphysical laws and mechanics of reality creation — the Law of Attraction and more — know that what you focus on you attract and what you resist persists.  The very focus on the problem and the resistance against it potentially sustains the problem and takes focus and energy away from creating what we want — a better world.

This is why it is essential that we move beyond our shock and fixation on these disturbing truths and start envisioning the better world that we all know can exist.

We are creators and we attract the essence of our most predominant thoughts into our reality — that’s why one of the golden rules of manifestation is Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want.

Sadly, there are some who are aware of the law of attraction and yet they still remain fixated on the problems of the world and their fears.

Transcending Victim Mentality

One of the things that keeps many anchored and fixated on the injustices that have been perpetrated on us is victim mentality.

Understand that nothing can come into your experience that you do not invite with your thoughts — this is the Law of Attraction.  Deeply understanding this means that you fully accept that you are RESPONSIBLE for everything that comes into your life whether you understand the reasons or not.

If we have been deceived and manipulated, we have ALLOWED it.  We allowed it by not being engaged in our political process, by not paying attention to what was important, and by not exercising discernment.  When you fully embrace your creatorship you take full responsibility for everything that comes into your life — no more blaming, no more complaining, no more focusing on the problem, no more focusing on what you don’t want — no more disempowering victim mentality!

By understanding your responsibility for everything that comes into your life you free yourself from the “blame game” and allow yourself to step into your true power and sovereignty.

Focusing on the Solution

“Focus on solutions, not problems” is a timeless pearl of wisdom and is true regardless of whether you believe in the strictly rational view of the nature of reality, or you embrace the idea that reality is a creation of our thoughts.

The fact that we are awakening and becoming aware of the many injustices in our world is good because only with awareness is change possible.  And there’s nothing wrong with being disturbed by these things, but instead of getting fixated on them let’s use our awareness to motivate us to create a clear vision of the world as we would like it to be.  Let’s use our understanding of what has happened in the PAST to help us formulate our vision of the FUTURE — and then let’s focus on that with all our hearts and minds.

Let’s envision a wonderful future and think about it, talk about it, and do whatever we can to contribute to building it.  Do anything, however small.  It might only be sharing your vision with others, or it might be donating money or volunteering time to your favorite humanitarian or progressive projects and organizations.  Learn about, share information about, and get involved in the new paradigms of the future;  sharing economy, conscious capitalism, food independence, contribtionism, the clean/green energy movement, and so many more. Do whatever you can and whatever interests you!

The path to a better world has little to do with worrying about the injustices of the past or fighting the old and it’s all about inner spiritual growth and focusing on envisioning and building the new.

Focusing on Solutions but Still Holding a Grudge

Many move beyond the “awakening shock” phase and begin to focus on envisioning and creating a better world.  Yet few let go of the need to fear and condemn the dark ones that have strived to control us for their own gain.

A few enlightened people choose to change their perspective and see the dark ones not as evil or bad but merely as LOST SOULS, and some even see the dark ones as a great lesson that enhances our spiritual evolution, and they completely release their judgments towards them.  These few enlighted ones understand that, on the long and winding journey of our souls, we’ve all been lost to varying degrees, and we’ve all explored the dark side at one time or another in our many lives.  They understand that we all find our way back to light eventually, and so they chose to send unconditional forgiveness and love to the lost ones and invite them to join us in the light and in creating a wonderful new world for all.

And this doesn’t just apply to the few dark ones who have tried to dominate us.  It also applies to all those who have gotten caught up in the fear and darkness — just more LOST SOULS on the long and winding road back to the light.

Unconditionally Forgiving and Loving the Lost Ones

It is very challenging for some to embrace unconditional forgiveness and love.  For many the idea of unconditional forgiveness and love makes no rational sense at all and seems like a recipe to get taken advantage of.  And from the purely rational perspective, this is a very reasonable response.

But our rational perspective was formulated based on our observations of the surface layers of the grand illusion that we are a part of, and in ignorance of the wider and deeper reality.

Remember, that the dark ones have souls just like us.  We all joined the earth game to experience separation from our divine source, to see what that would be like and what it could teach us.  The dark ones are merely lost souls — souls that have lost the connection with their divine source and cannot feel the love and light that is deep within them. We have all been lost in the game for some time now and to varying degrees.  Holding fear or resentment towards others serves no useful purpose — in fact, it is counter-productive.

Holding on to fear, resentment, and condemnation is an energy that does not serve the highest good for yourself or anyone else. It also delays you from taking full responsibility for your experiences and fully stepping into your power and sovereignty.  Releasing our resentments and unconditionally forgiving and loving everyone has the power to transform our world if we’d only give it a chance.

A Prayer for the Dark Ones

Here’s a prayer that I use to help me release any resentment or judgement of the dark ones and to extend love and light to them in the hope that they will join us as we move forward in creating a wonderful new era of humanity.


To all those on Earth that have been playing the domination game, I say Bravo! You have played your game with skill and cunning.  You nearly controlled our entire world. You have demonstrated your prowess at deception, manipulation, and control, and I salute you!

But now your game is over, and it is time to play a new game — the “cooperation” game.  This game is far more challenging and rewarding than your domination game, and its goal is not to create wealth and power for a few but to create abundance, prosperity, and happiness for all.

We invite you to come play this new game with us.  All we ask is that you open your hearts and embrace all the love and light the we are sending you.  It is in this spirit that we welcome you with open arms to join us in the challenge and the rewards of creating “Heaven on Earth” — a world where EVERYONE is prosperous and happy.

And to those that have played this domination game so deftly I say “thank you.”  Thank you for teaching us a great lesson that we will never forget.  An invaluable lesson about trusting ourselves, about being discerning, and about not giving away our power. And perhaps the greatest gift that this experience has provided us is the complete clarity that we now have about what we want to be, and the kind of world we want to live in and intend to create.


Love and light,

How we met and a Dream that became more… (Shannon’s version)

It was the first day of school, 6th grade band and my best friend and I were checking out the room for cute boys.  Jamie and his best friend caught my eye and I mentioned it to her.  It’s true I dated his best friend first and he dated mine, we were just kids.  We eventually swapped and dated each other.  He was funny, the class clown and he was so full of energetic life.  Being so shy and reserved myself, I was really attracted to his energy.  Our first kiss was after school at the front gateway among a hoard of other students pushing to get to their buses.  We “dated” each other off and on through middle school.  In 7th grade I started having a reoccurring dream about Jamie. I never told anybody until many years later for fear they would say I was just a foolish child. It was a vision of us married and to my 12-year-old self we were much older, I guessed in our thirties. I saw our general body shapes, we were taller, wider and I wasn’t sure Jamie had hair. We looked oddly different as adults and we had several children, although I can’t remember the exact amount it was more than three. In the vision our kids were also older, close in age, and they were all going to high school together.  I could not see their faces even though after several of these dreams I seemed to be trying really hard; I wanted to know what our children would look like! Overall, the dream became a comfort to me in an extremely difficult time of abuse in my life; it became a beacon of secret hope for my future. The message was loud and clear: I HAD a future and it was a happy one.

In 8th grade and through the early parts of high school, I didn’t see Jamie much, but he lived closed to my grandparents house and would occasionally skateboard there to say hi and show off. I felt so calm in this secret knowledge that we would end up together one day when the time was right. And even though I had a serious boyfriend in high school and we did not share classes or the same social circles, Jamie and I had these intense moments between us throughout the halls between classes.  We would both secretly follow each other taking the long routes around, just to be near each other for as many minutes as possible, never saying a word and only sometimes catching each other’s eyes.  We thought it was our secret world, but eventually my boyfriend must have noticed the looks and felt our energy.  It was loud enough that he pulled Jamie to the side one day and told him to stay away from me! I didn’t know this until a few years later and Jamie never was good at listening to orders…

Fast forward to 20 years later, we did marry and a lot of life was lived. Our 4 children were beginning 12th, 11th, 9th and 4th grades and they were posed in our driveway for the obligatory first day of school photo. I was stunned by the vision of them standing there; the dream came rushing back to me in an instant. I realized it had come true down to every detail, what we looked like…how happy we were. I immediately called Jamie and said, “You’re never going to believe what just happened, this is the year of the dream”! He knew exactly what I meant. It was a very profound moment of synchronicity.

Volleyball in the Keys 1990

The summer before 11th grade and my possessive, older boyfriend had graduated and gone off to boot camp when Jamie ran into my Mom at the local shopping plaza late in the night. She always loved Jamie and told him “that guy” was gone for the summer and to come rescue me. She gave him our new address, which was fairly close to his house. One day he showed up on his bike and we talked out in the apartment courtyard. He kept saying he wanted me and that I knew we were meant to be together.  I acted like I didn’t know what he was talking about, but I knew and I also knew he was right. I felt some kind of honorable obligation to my boyfriend, so I initially fought it. But, as in all things regarding Jamie I was powerless to his loving demands. The simple lesson in this is your heart recognizes the truth whenever you hear it.

We spent the most amazing summer together swimming in the lake by our house and listening to music. At the end of the summer, I asked Jamie to give me some space to try to break up with the military boyfriend.  As I mentioned, he was possessive and I was fearful of him stalking me and just not taking it well. I also told Jamie that under no circumstances was he to contact me until he was done with any affiliation to his neighborhood gang… That just wasn’t him and he had no business there and he needed the time to sort that out. It was a hard line for me. He also wasn’t attending school; but I knew his potential and that this was a case of “one step at a time.”

In the first months of 11th grade, I was still trying to figure out how to break up with that guy. I knew it was over for a long time, but I was very scared. One day at lunch Jamie’s best friend from middle school sat next to me and said he was under strict orders from Jamie to go to the school’s payphone and to put me on the line. This was pretty laughable at the time, 1- Jamie was too much of a jokester to be making “demands” and 2- His best friend who was still trying to “play” me was the one bringing it to me. After some negotiating I finally decided I needed to hear this. I remember his first words to me were “It’s time.” That might have been the first truly sincere, non-joking thing he’d ever said to me and in that moment I knew we would both move heaven and earth to make it work. He convinced me to drive to his house that day. I knew he was shooting pool and looking out the windows at my car sitting idle at the stop sign and I wanted him to come out and prove his words.  He didn’t come outside, so I drove away without looking back. I was never one to make it easy for him…

“Here is a little history of my life. At the age of 10, I met a girl who would someday be my wife; her name is Shannon. I knew from the moment that I laid my eyes upon her that we would share most of our lives together. This was my first experience with the divine connection, this feeling of knowing. It was a feeling of such strength there was no questioning it.

The Importance of Discipline in Meditation

Guest post written by Janelle McCarthy of Spirit Mind Evolution.

The best thing about meditation is that there are no rules. There’s no one to tell you what you should be doing, how you should be doing it, what you should be experiencing, or what you should get out of it. Meditation is a space for complete freedom. With that freedom, comes responsibility, though. Staying disciplined in your own meditation practice is important in trying to get the most of that freedom.

Like I said, there are no rules to meditation. While there are techniques that are widely used, they’re not required and no one is around to tell you if you’re doing them right or not anyway. The only person who is there to guide your meditation practice is yourself. You have complete control over what you put into your meditations which will determine what you receive from them. Just like in sports, arts, work, and life, the energy you put into it will determine what you get out. This is why it’s so important to be able to self-discipline.

In every day life, in our jobs and in school, we have teachers and bosses telling us what we’re doing right and wrong and making sure we’re being consistent and doing things their way. In meditation, you are your boss and your teacher. You get to determine what is right and what is wrong for you and what you want to gain. While you can meditate sporadically with no goals in mind if you please, you wouldn’t be fully taking advantage of the benefits that meditation can give you and the free space it places you in.

In meditation, it’s beneficial to set aside a time or schedule for yourself and to have an idea of what you are trying to accomplish, whether that’s to relax on a stressful day or help with your anxiety or to meet your spirit guide or anything else. Once you’re able to consistently take that time out every day or every other day or however often it may be, you’ll see a change. The more disciplined and consistent you become, the more you’ll see effects in your life. It’s just like exercising or eating healthy. The more you do it and the more consistent you become, the easier it gets, the stronger you become, and the more effects you see every day even outside of the activity itself.

The great thing about meditation is that while it requires discipline, it also teaches you discipline. The feeling of sitting in a space where you feel totally free and unbound and feel total mental clarity and understanding of yourself is an amazing one and it doesn’t end when your meditation is over. That mental clarity and understanding will stay with you even as you go about your day. The more you meditate to reach the state, the more you’ll learn that you can keep that sense of freeness outside of meditation. And if you haven’t yet reached that state of mind, it just means you need to practice more.

The more you meditate, the more your daily activities begin to mirror meditation. When I am consistently meditating and putting energy into it and focusing on it, I find that everyday activities become meditative as well. The mindset from my meditation stays with me longer when I use that same discipline and focus in my daily life. The hardest part of disciplining yourself in meditation (at least for me) is carrying that discipline over into your everyday life. I can sit alone and meditate and not allow myself to be distracted by outside noises or thoughts, but that’s harder to do when you’re writing a paper or driving a car.

The more you practice though, like any activity, the better you get at it. The more you practice that focus and discipline in meditation, the more you’ll feel the same focus and clarity outside of meditation.
