There is a growing awareness and indignation about the injustice and inequality running rampant in our world, and growing interest in creating the better world that we all know can exist. One of the key changes that needs to happen to enable the transformation of our humanity is to reclaim our personal power to think for ourselves, to discern truth from disinformation, and to stand firm for what we know is right.
The Source that created us endowed us with free-will and the power to create with our thoughts, words, and deeds. Yet many of us are squandering these endowments, squandering them so badly that the probable future of humanity is not looking very bright. Humanity is at a critical junction in its history — one road leads to a very bleak future, and the other has the potential to be a new golden age. The outcome depends on us, each one of us, starting right now and it starts by freeing your mind! The key to reclaiming our freedom and creating a better world is for each of us to reclaim our sovereignty.
What is Sovereignty?
The word “Sovereign” refers to the power or right that a nation/state or individual has to determine its own destiny — to not be controlled by others. The ability to determine one’s own destiny has been termed SELF-DETERMINATION and it is one aspect of the timeless ideal called FREEDOM. Self-determination and freedom are said to be intrinsic rights bestowed on us by Source/God. The American founding fathers firmly thought so and called these “inalienable” rights. Personal sovereignty refers to the intrinsic right of an INDIVIDUAL to self-determination.
But having the right of sovereignty is not the same as BEING sovereign. One must assert a right through one’s thoughts and actions, or the right is essentially lost. Ultimately your sovereignty has to be demonstrated. The classic saying “Freedom is not free” echoes this idea — rights must be claimed by the constant application of attention, thought, and engagement.
An important part of being truly free is the responsibility to be highly discerning about the ideas, beliefs, and attitudes that we choose to accept from society. In fact, we must be independent minded and confident enough to form our own ideas, beliefs, and attitudes — despite the pressure that society puts on us to conform. We must not just blindly accept everything our government, religions, teachers, and so called “experts” want us to believe. Doing so gives away our power and allows the “powers that be” to create a world that serves their agenda — a world that might not be in our best interest.
Why Personal Sovereignty is Important
If we don’t start forming our own beliefs, trusting our inner knowledge, and standing for what we know in our hearts is right, the future of our world will be defined and created by a very few with a very self-serving agenda. In this world that worships the almighty dollar commercial interests are steering the ship. We have allowed them to hijack our government, our religions, our media, and our beliefs and attitudes — materialism, consumerism, separatism, and fear serve their interests.
Giving Away Our Power
But the “powers that be” only steer the ship because we’ve bought into all the beliefs and attitudes and have let ourselves become apathetic and disengaged. So let’s not point fingers and blame those that we perceive are manipulating us. Realize the we are ALLOWING ourselves to be manipulated, allowing ourselves to be taken to a future not of our design. We are fully responsible for everything about our lives including what we let happen to us, and we are letting a lot happen to us. Don’t fall into the “victim mentality” trap and get caught up in the blame and complain game — that only gives away your power.
Far too many of us are just are letting our beliefs and values be determined by others. Far too many of us are just going along with what we are told, following what our government, church, teachers, or idols have told us to believe, or do, or be, explicitly or implicitly.
Far too many of us are deferring to the opinions and ideas of the “AUTHORITIES”. This gives away our power and allows others to control us. And often times the “authorities”, or those that control/influence them, have hidden agendas that are not in our best interest.
Mass beliefs in the power of outside authorities are firmly entrenched in your psyche … raising many questions about the truth of who you are and why you place your trust outside yourself.
To reclaim our power we need to start forming OUR OWN beliefs, trust our inner truth, and do what WE KNOW is right, not what others tell us, or society expects. We need to engage our hearts and minds and stand firm in what we know is true and right. If we don’t do this soon, we might find ourselves living in a dystopian future like the ones explored in numerous fiction novels.
The Erosion of Freedom in The Age of Distraction, Obsession, and Fear
In this era dominated by consumerism, materialism, and the pursuit of the almighty dollar many of us are so busy and distracted by chasing the money, and the possessions, and the thrills that we are failing to see that we are gradually giving away more and more of our power and freedom. This slow erosion is going on all around us, subtly and not so subtly, on many levels.
Our obsession with the accumulation of possessions — materialism and consumerism — keeps us distracted from what really matters. Our fixation on all the dangerous, bad, fearful things happening in the world keeps us distracted from what’s important. All the wars including the “war on terrorism” and the “war on drugs” keep us mesmerized in fear.
And who does this all serve? It serves shadowy commercial and political interests and the military-industrial complex and keeps them in the power and in the money. For them it’s all about the money, nothing else seems to matter, no higher purpose than to serve themselves. And they are masters of manipulation and are capitalizing on our weaknesses and our fears. Isn’t it obvious? Haven’t we had enough of this?
Reclaiming Our Power
It’s our divine right and responsibility to own our beliefs, ideas, principles, and values. It’s time we reclaim our confidence in our inner knowledge and have the courage to stand for truth and justice despite what our institutions, the media, and others may be telling us. We need to stop blaming the system and wake-up from our laziness, distractions, and dependencies to reclaim our power so we can create a better world!
It’s time to remember who you really are, not who others or society says you are or can be. It is time to stand in your own personal truths, not what others have told you is true. It is time to form your own beliefs, rather than just adopt what others believe. It is time to stand for what you know in your heart is right, rather than what society tells you is right, even if it means standing alone.
You are a slice of the powerful infinite being that we call the Universe, the source of “All That Is”. Stand in that power confidently! BE TRUE TO YOURSELF and STOP being a FOLLOWER!
You don’t need teachers, experts, professors, gurus, priests, pastors, church leaders, or heroes/idols to tell you what to believe, or what the truth is, or to show you how to connect with God. You don’t need THEIR beliefs, ideologies, or specific practices that they swear are the one and only way to reach the truth.
It is all within you, all the knowledge of the universe is deep within you. You are connected to all of it, to Source or God or whatever you choose to call it, just go within and become quiet and trust what you find, what you feel, what you know.
A bright future for humanity is still very much possible, but we’re going to have wake up out of our haze of consumption, distraction, laziness, apathy, and fear and start paying attention and getting engaged. Even thou all our experiences expand Sources understanding of itself and the nature of its existence and, therefore, are all valuable, surely we’ve had enough of the many less than desirable themes repeating in our experiences. Surely we’ve had enough of wage and debt slavery, of going to a job every day that we hate or bores us to tears, of all the competition and conflict, of all the pain and suffering — have we not? I think it is safe to say that our Source would encourage us choose a higher and grander vision of what we could be. I think it’s safe to say that our Source would prefer the experience of joy, abundance, and freedom — for all.
Like a lot of things about this reality we experience, linear time is simply a very convincing illusion. It is an illusion created by consciousness. In fact, so is “space”. Closely related to the idea of “time” is the notion of “linear causality” — A causes B causes C. This notion is also just a very convincing illusion. The reality that we are experiencing is by no means an “objective reality” as most people presume. It is more like what we would conceive of as a virtual reality, but one with some very interesting rules.
Let’s briefly review the basics about what you and the universe really are and then we’ll dive into how and why time and space are illusions.
The very fabric of the Universe is conscious, and your consciousness is a thread of this universal consciousness with its own focal point of awareness. We are apertures that the universe is perceiving and experiencing through.
Mainstream science, with its rigid materialistic view of the universe, believes that consciousness arises from the operation of the brain. The operation of the brain does give rise to some LIMITED cognitive, as well as analytical abilities and local memory, but our higher consciousness exists in the field, and our brain functions as a receiver.
In fact, consciousness is all the Universe is. Everything seen and unseen, large and small, are just thought forms inside of the cosmic mind. And because we are threads of this cosmic consciousness, we are creating our reality with our thoughts and beliefs — this is how the universe works, this is what it is, we are part of a great cosmic mind, and all realities are constructs.
The Infinite Information Matrix
The information that represents every aspect of every moment of the past, present, and future all exists simultaneously, eternally, and NOW. Not just all the information for the timeline that we are experiencing, but all possible timelines — literally an infinite matrix containing everything possible, everything imaginable. Of course, this is not apparent from within the space-time construct because we are only seeing and experiencing the part that is needed to create the experience of our reality. You can think of a timeline as the path that our consciousness takes through the information, and hence experiences.
In an unbounded (unconstrained) state of consciousness, the state that our higher-self is in, we can move our point of awareness anywhere in the infinite matrix of information that represents all that is, navigating through it by either the “temporal” dimension or the “spatial” dimension. More about this later in the article when we look at remote viewing and past life regression.
Our physical reality is a construct that our souls are using as a learning experience. In a certain sense, our whole reality is an illusion, but the experiences it provides are very much real and leaves an indelible mark on the consciousness that is our souls. It serves as a most excellent training system for our souls and drives our souls spiritual evolution/growth.
The Cosmic Film Projector
From the context of the eternal NOW and the infinite information matrix, a linear experience is created by sequentially stepping your consciousness’s focal point of perception/awareness through the information matrix. This process creates the experience of time and space, motion, evolution, and causality.
It’s like a movie produced by a film projector.
In a film projector, the illusion of motion and time is created when the projector displays the still frames of the film, one frame at a time, in a rapid steady sequence. Yet, ALL the frames exist simultaneously. In fact, the projectionist can take out the film, spread it out on the floor, and view all the frames at the same time.
In a similar manner, our consciousness “projects” individual “still frames of reality” in a steady and extremely rapid sequence, BILLIONS of times per second, creating the ILLUSION of the flow of TIME. Each “frame of reality” contains absolutely NO MOTION whatsoever — it is a perfectly STILL image. Yet, by rapidly sequencing these still frames, we create the illusion of motion and time.
Sets of information in the infinite matrix function much like the still frames of the filmstrip. Our earthly consciousness functions much like the film projector, viewing still frames in a rapid, steady sequence. Our higher self exists in the timeless realm and functions like the film projectionist, who can take out the film and view ALL the frames simultaneously.
It is you who are moving, not time. Time has no movement. There is only One Moment.
The Illusion of Continuity
Normally, the “reality-frames” that we view in rapid sequence are related and similar, creating the ILLUSION of continuity. Continuity is required to make the game of life a convincing experience. If we experienced obvious discontinuities, we would realize we were players in a game, and that would diminish the effectiveness and purpose of the game of life.
One of the reasons why continuity is experienced is because we are selecting the “reality frames” we see in each successive moment via resonance with our thoughts and since we don’t BELIEVE jumping around timelines is possible (e.g; we believe in linear continuity), then discontinuities don’t normally happen. We EXPECT continuity, so that’s what we get. We are creating all of our reality with our thoughts and beliefs — this is how the universe works, this is what it is, we are part of a great cosmic mind.
But continuity is not an absolute requirement. It is possible to “jump” to a completely different frame in the infinite matrix. Jumping around the timelines would normally be considered “Time Travel”, and this has traditionally been considered impossible. One argument that is often put forward why time travel isn’t possible is the classic “grandfather paradox” that states:
If you time-travel to the time of your grandfather and kill him before he has any children, then your father would not have been born, and then you would not have been born. And if you were never born, you could not go back to kill your grandfather.
Of course, the paradox dissolves when you realize that there are an infinite number of timelines — all simultaneously co-existing (parallel but distinct paths through the infinite matrix, or “flows” of events). When you “Time Travel” you are jumping to a DIFFERENT timeline. There is no change whatsoever in your originating timeline. The timeline you switched to may appear to be almost identical to the one you were on, but it is a totally DIFFERENT timeline.
Paranormal Phenomena and the Illusion of Time and Space
The paranormal/psychic phenomena of remote viewing and past life regressionshed light onto to the underlying nature of our reality and are consistent with the illusory nature of time and space that I am presenting here.
Remote viewing is the term that the military intelligence community coined as an alternative to other metaphysical terms. Remote viewing is the ability to view any location, no matter how distant, in one’s mind simply by conscious intent. According to the book Limitless Mind: A Guide to Remote Viewing anyone can develop this ability with training.
The ability for the mind to “see” any location in space strongly suggests that consciousness exists outside the brain in the fabric of the universe, as many ancient schools of thought believed, and that many leading-edge contemporary scientists are starting to understand and prove (check out the book The Immortal Mind: Science and the Continuity of Consciousness beyond the Brain to dive deeper into this subject).
Our conscious awareness is indeed a part of something akin to a universal mind and in its unbounded (unconstrained) state, we can move our point of awareness anywhere in the infinite matrix of information that represents all that is, navigating through it by “spatial” or “temporal” dimensions. In the case of remote viewing, we are accessing our unbounded (universal) mind and moving our focal point of awareness through the “spatial” dimension, the universal information matrix, to a specific “spatial” location.
Past life regression is another paranormal phenomena that illuminates the true nature of time and space. This technique uses hypnosis to put a subject into a state of consciousness that allows them to access the unbounded consciousness of their higher-self to explore, what we traditionally think of as, past and future lives. Our higher-self creates many souls that are aspects of itself and projects them into the lower frequency planes of existence. During past life regression, we are able to access some of our unbounded consciousness and move our point of awareness through the “temporal” dimension of the infinite information matrix along paths and to locations that correspond to segments and points on timelines that other aspects of our higher-self (other souls) are stepping through (experiencing).
Our higher-self creates many souls and puts them in many life forms, on many worlds, in many different situations, to accelerate the evolution of its consciousness (spiritual evolution). It is experiencing everything that all its souls are experiencing and growing because of it. It is having a massively parallel experience through all of its souls! If you want to learn more about reincarnation and past life regression, I recommend the books Journey of Souls and Past Life Regression: Discover Your Hidden Past Life Memories.
The Mechanics of Reality Creation
The reality that we are experiencing is by no means an “objective reality” as most people presume. In fact, it is more like what we would conceive of as a virtual reality, but one with some very interesting rules, some of which I’ve discussed here. Deeply understanding and mastering the laws and mechanics of reality creation will make you a very powerful being who can tailor make your personal reality to whatever you desire. And if we ALL mastered this, and focused our thoughts and intentions on the same vision of a better world, we could drastically alter our collective reality too! And quick!
Whether you know it or not, you are a multidimensional being of staggering proportions. You are more than meets the eye, much more — more than your body, more than your soul, in fact, you are an integral part of the Universe. You are present on many levels of reality simultaneously and more powerful than you have ever imagined. Are you ready to expand your concept of self-hood to include higher selves, other/parallel selves, and probable selves? If so then, let’s dive in!
Most of us are familiar with the idea of the soul — the conception that our bodies are transient physical vessels for an eternal energetic aspect of our consciousness, which is our true essence. Conventional science dismisses this idea, and so do many people. I’m assuming that you probably embrace it since you were attracted to this article. You’re not alone; many people feel the presence of something greater within themselves. And as the great shift in the consciousness of humanity accelerates more and more people are feeling and connecting to it.
If we take the existence of some sort of higher aspect of self as a given, the next question becomes; is our current idea of the soul accurate and complete? There are a growing number of sources that are saying that it is not, that it is overly simplistic, in fact, almost one-dimensional when compared to the new higher fidelity models being suggested.
Some schools of thought subscribe to the very simple model shown below.
This model portrays just two entities; Source/God and Souls (potentially connected to bodies). Its most notable element is that the soul is seen as created by, but separate from the creator. This representation is very simple and easy to understand but it is a gross oversimplification, and the idea that we are separate from Source/God is, well, just plain wrong. Luckily, fewer and fewer people are subscribing to this particular model.
Another school of thought offers a somewhat more sophisticated model as shown below.
It considers the Soul a PART OF a wider/higher entity referred to as the Over-Soul, which in turn, is part of the all-encompassing Source/God entity. This model is on the right track and hits upon a couple of key elements; we are multi-layered beings, and every layer is PART OF (and within) each successive layer and all are part of, and within, the one all-encompassing being that we call Source/God. Yet even this model is an oversimplification.
A word of warning here; when you see the term “being”, think “sentient energetic entity” not “physical being”. Most of us have a tendency to personify the concept of “beingness”, but this is a mistake. The essence of all beingness is something non-physical and that’s why I will often use the term “entity” instead, because it avoids this trap.
While the models presented certainly do reflect some aspects of the deeper reality, it is my contention that they are just gross approximations. In the remainder of this article, I will present a more sophisticated model that is a synthesis of ideas from a number of different sources and expands greatly beyond the models mentioned above. It suggests that we are multidimensional entities present on many levels of “reality” simultaneously and more powerful than we have been led to believe or have ever imagined. Only a small portion of your total beingness is present in the physical body that you may have erroneously assumed was all of you. The you that you identify as you is a part of a much bigger entity, which is ultimately also just a small part of the ultimate entity that is “all that is” — referred to through the ages by many names; Source, Infinite Creator, God, etc.
You are a multidimensional being of staggering proportions and in your quest to know yourself, and the nature of your existence, you have employed massive parallelism.
So what exactly is a soul and what is its relationship to what some call “God” and others call “Source Consciousness”?
If you haven’t heard the term “source consciousness” before then this may come as a shock — the universe is conscious in its very fabric. The Universe is not at all what it appears from our very limited perspective. We exist inside of something resembling a great cosmic mind, often referred to as “cosmic/universal consciousness”.
As the term “source consciousness” suggests, all consciousness is derived from the universal field of consciousness. The consciousness of each and every one of us is an individualized thread of the universal consciousness. This is what your “soul” is — it is a thread of universal consciousness with an associated repository of experiential information (local memory), and derivative ideas, all somehow encoded as a pattern of energy. Our soul is sentient energy as is the entire universe.
There is only One Consciousness in all existence. The consciousness that I know myself as is the same consciousness you know yourself as.
Source consciousness is the intelligence that is/created our Universe, and it INDIRECTLY created all our souls. One of the fundamental capabilities of consciousness is the ability to subdivide itself — to create smaller individualized copies of itself within itself. Source used this mechanism to create the first level of sub-threads of its consciousness, what in effect could be thought of as sub-selves. It did this to explore and experience many-ness, rather than oneness, but more importantly, as a strategy to accelerate the exploration of itself and existence — to accelerate its evolution.
The mechanism that Source used to accomplish subdivision and individuation of its consciousness was primarily that of lowering the frequency of portions of its energies, stepping them down into the lower frequency bands of the energetic field. This is part of the reason why subdivisions of consciousness operate somewhat independently of, yet are inherently part of and connected to, the “higher” consciousness that spawned them — they are simply portions of the parent sentient energies at a significantly lower frequential level.
The subdivisions of consciousness that Source created within itself, in a very real sense, can be considered its sub-selves. And here is the really cool part, anything that a sub-self experiences is also experienced by its parent/higher-self and thus forms the basis for an evolutionary strategy — massively parallel experiences!
The process of subdivision of consciousness is a general capability and can and has been repeated by the sub-selves at each level of consciousness, and for the same reasons — to accelerate their evolution, and thereby contributing to Sources evolution.
Consciousness is like a multi-level branching structure. If we use a tree analogy then source consciousness would be the tree trunk. The tree trunk then divides into many large branches, which keep dividing into smaller and smaller branches until we get to twigs with a leaf attached to the end of each.
In this model we could think of the “leaves” as physical bodies and then as you move from the leaf towards the trunk we’d encounter the soul level, and then the over-soul level, and then a number of additional levels till we reached the the tree trunk coming out of the ground, the Source level. Note that even thou the diagram above shows seven levels it’s unclear how many levels there really are, or whether all branches have to have the same number of divisions/levels. The only thing that’s for sure is that there are more than three levels, probably many more. A number of sources indicate that there is a level above the Over-Soul that has been refered to as “Soul Group”. Below is a diagram illustrating the divisional structure of universal consciousness.
According to some sources there are 2,135 Soul Groups participating in the Earth experience right now (who knows how many exist within Source in total, probably many more). Each Soul Group entity is able to subdivide itself into (create) up to 144,000 over-souls, and each over-soul is able to create up to 12 souls, and each soul up to 12 soul-extensions. A Soul-Extension is just another subdivision of consciousness which allows connection to physical vehicles (bodies) in the very lowest frequency bands. The consciousness that connects to a body to “drive” it has to be within a certain “distance” frequentailly to achieve the connection. If you do the math this leads to potentially 44 billion incarnate entities on Earth.
An over-soul creates one or more souls for the purpose of connecting to physical bodies in the physical planes of existence — the lower frequency bands of the Universe. A physical body is simply a vehicle that the soul uses to have physical experiences. Physical life provides unique and highly formative experiences that are much sought after by a wide variety of non-physical beings. Physical experience, while challenging, is a spiritual evolution fast track and therefore highly coveted.
The 12×12 subdivisional structure of the Over-Soul allows each over-soul to have up to 144 sub-selves that each can bind to physical bodies for 144 parallel physical lives. And of course, one of these 144 sub-selves and its body is YOU!
The Higher Self, The True Self
Amongst those that embrace that they have a soul, many are still overly identified with their body as their identity. Even those that embrace the soul as their true identity may be missing a deeper appreciation of the true scope of their wider/higher self. Despite the fact that some use the term “Higher-Self” as a synonym for the “Over-Soul” I think it’s better used to refer to all the levels of self all the way up to, and including, Source. The figure below illustrates this idea.
Your body, and in a sense, even your soul, where created as a transient sentient entity to serve as an experiential and evolutionary vehicle for your over-soul. So in a very real sense, you could consider the over-soul that spawned your soul as your TRUE SELF!
And your Over-Soul is an immensely wise and powerful being that is always trying to encourage you to create the best experiences for yourself and to become the highest vision of yourself. Why? because you are part of it, and it is experiencing through you!
At this point you might be wondering, If this is true, why don’t I know it and feel it?This is a very good question.
When your soul incarnates (connects to a physical vehicle) it loses its memory of its greater existence. The “veil of forgetting” is intentional, it makes the earth game a fully immersive and truly formative experience. The game of life would not be the same if you knew it was just a game.
We also lose a lot of the fidelity of our connection to our higher-self (over-soul and source). This is an unavoidable consequence of incarnating into the lower frequencyplanes of existence — the physical planes. Our earthly level of consciousness is at a frequency so much lower than that of our higher-self that any stream of information coming down is subject to a large reduction of fidelity due to the frequency step down required. Yet we could still have a very good connection with our higher-self if it wasn’t for one thing — our out-of-control ego.
The constant chatter of the ego and analytical mind creates so much mental noise that we can’t hear the inner guiding voice of our higher-self. Essentially the signal to noise ratio is so low that the information coming from our higher-self gets drowned out. Hence, most people on Earth have almost totally lost connection with their higher-self and have completely forgotten what they really are.
What does it take to reestablish a clear connection to your higher-self? For one thing, it takes a clear and quiet mind. One must quell the constant chatter of the analytical and egoic mind and the fear and worry that dominates it. Another thing that helps is to reduce our busyness — the constant distractions of our hectic daily lives don’t leave much space for the presence of the higher-self. Making more time for solitude and meditation is a good start.
As poor as most peoples connection to there higher self is, you’ve never really completely lost your connection to the other parts of your multidimensional self. Without realizing it, you’ve had communications between the different layers of your multidimensional self, as well as “other” higher dimensional beings, particularly in childhood when you where much more open and receptive. Since then you’ve rejected, ignored, and forgotten most of these “Interdimensional” experiences, simply because you didn’t understand what they were and dismissed them as dreams, over-active imagination, hallucinations, etc.
Suzanne Lie Ph.D. is offering a five-week course entitled “Interdimensional Life Review” that can help you to remember all the interdimensional experiences that you’ve had during your childhood, adolescence, and adulthood and help you to improve your connection to your higher wider self. This course will guide you in an exploration and reinterpretation of your “weird” experiences, in the light of your new understanding of your multidimensional nature, as very real “INTERDIMENSIONAL” communication experiences. This process can help improve your connection with all parts of your wider self and enhance your reception of the loving guidance that is constantly offered to facilitate your highest good. To learn more and to register go here.
Even thou the loss of connection with our higher-self could be seen as “bad” it actually serves one of the reasons why we devised the game of life in the first place — to experience separation and to see what it could teach us — separation from the source of our beingness, separation from the knowing that we are all parts of one great being and interconnected and interdependent.
With training, you can learn how to move your locus of consciousness to any level of your wider/higher-self — your soul, over-soul, even Source, and perceive from that higher perspective. In fact, you can move your locus of consciousness to anywhere in the infinite matrix that is the conceptual/information space of the universal field of consciousness. More on this in future articles, follow the blog to stay tuned!
Other Selves, Parallel Selves, and Many Lives
From the perspective of your Over-Soul (the higher you), all the souls that it created, and their extensions that are connected to physical bodies, could be considered your “other selves”.
By some accounts, this can be up to 144 PARALLEL incarnations, and regardless of whether that exact number is correct, we can safely say that the higher you is experiencing MANY LIVES in parallel. And since at the end of a life the sentient energy that was connected to a body can be reused with another body, your Over-Soul has experienced far more incarnations than this, perhaps thousands! This is why your Over-Soul is so wise, it’s the sum of all the wisdom gleaned from a vast amount of experiences.
Your many incarnations can be anywhere in the physical Universe — any planet; any galaxy; any time period — past, present, or future (our conception of time is wrong,time is an illusion); and in any one of the planes of physical reality.
But since you’re here having an Earth experience it is very likely that many of the other lives the higher you is having are also here on Earth, probably in other time periods. The Earth reality system provides challenging yet highly formative experiences that are appropriate for fairly advanced beings, so if you are currently engaged here, then it is likely that most of your other selves are here as well because anything less would be boring.
Here’s a diagram that highlights all the parallel incarnations associated with a given over-soul.
Past and Future Lives
Using a technique known as “Past Life Regression” you can actually visit or “see” your other lives — by “see” I mean “have and inner experience of”. This is done by going into a trance state (via hypnosis or deep relaxation) and then being guided, by suggestion or your own intent, to visit the experiences of your “other selves”, your “other lives”. In the trance state, the earthly mind is quieted, and one can perceive from the vantage point of any level of ones higher-self and sense the experiences of any of their parallel lives. All these experiences are recorded in the energy/information field of your higher-self and are accessible if you center the focus of your consciousness in one of the levels of your higher-self. Depending on the level you may “see” the lives experienced by your soul, or your over-soul, or perhaps even higher levels of yourself.
The term “Past Life Regression” is a bit of a misnomer since your other lives are all happening simultaneously and can be in any time period; past or future. If visiting a future life seems illogical or impossible to you then you might want to check out my article on The Illusion of Time. In the many thousands of regressions that have been done many have reported “seeing” portions of lives that were clearly in the future rather than in the past. Most people focus on exploring their “past lives” because, with our erroneous conception of linear time, we think that the past is “recorded” (and therefore potentially can be explored) but the future hasn’t happened yet (so isn’t recorded and can’t be visited).
There are also many people who have reported experiences from what could be called the “inter-life” period, the time between lives. A common report from these experiences is that our many lives are all, somehow, happening at once. Yet other people have reported an apparent sequential process of coming out of one life, reviewing it, planning, and then starting the next — which seems to contradict “all at once”. This is likely due to the fact that non-linear concepts are very hard for our earthly minds to understand and express so we will often express them linearly.
Probable Selves, Parallel Selves, and Many Life Paths
Another way that your higher-self accelerates its evolution through the use of parallelism is to experience all possible/probable life paths!
Have you ever wondered what would have happened if you had made a different choice at a critical juncture in your life? Well, so did your soul, but instead of just wondering it divides its consciousness yet again, creating a sub-thread of its consciousness to follow and experience each alternate life path. At every decision point of any significance, one portion of your souls sentience follows branch A, and another follows branch B. Your soul is experiencing all possible/probable life paths in parallel! The YOU that you think of as you is simply a sub-thread of your soul that is experiencing one particular branch of the life path decision tree.
At every significant decision point on a life path the path branches. A decision tree represents all possible paths. All of these are experienced by your soul. This mechanism creates a massively parallel experience which maximizes the evolutionary potential for the soul, for the over-soul, and for Source — since all experiences are experienced by your higher consciousness, they trickle up.
The soul threads that follow each of the possible paths of experience could in a sense, be called “Probable Selves”. Because there is one for each possible/probable life path. These probable selves are all very real and so are all the alternate experiences they are having — and it is all being accumulated by your higher levels of self! Imagine how much one could learn by experiencing every possible alternative life path, and all their outcomes! You would learn and grow very fast! That’s the reason why we designed the process this way!
The Highest Self, The One Self
Life has everything to do with you. But with Big You, not with Little You; with Universal You, not with Local You. There is only One of us.
Once you understand and embrace the multidimensional nature of your beingness, your perspective will broaden greatly. You may begin to see yourself not as the body and the ego that’s running around here on Earth but as your true essence — your eternal higher-self. You might even embrace, that in a very real sense, your “highest self” is source consciousness!
And an even greater realization may come over you. The realization that since the consciousness of all entities/beings are ultimately threads of source consciousness, and hence we are all parts of the one universal consciousness, that in a very real sense, there is only “One Self”.
All levels of consciousness and all loci of consciousness/beingness are ultimately within, and integral parts of, source consciousness — the one being. And this one being is your highest self, so in a sense, all beings could be considered “yourself”. This is why it makes sense to treat all beings with the utmost respect, care, encouragement, etc — because it’s all you!
Neal Donald Walsch was experiencing a low period in his life when he decided to write a letter to God, venting his frustrations. What he did not expect was a response. As he finished his letter, he was moved to continue writing – and out came extraordinary answers to his questions. This work presents the answers that Walsch received, helping him to change himself, his life and the way he viewed other beings.
An astonishing book that awakens you to your own power. Story has adopted the term ‘Freedom Consciousness’ to describe the state of being where spirit naturally resides. So rather than encouraging readers to become ‘other than they are’ he empowers them to realize ‘All That They Already Are’ through freeing the self from the limited beliefs that it may have taken on in forms such as fear, shame, guilt, and lack of self-worth.
This book will help you discover the long journey of your soul — whether your incarnations were in the distant past or more recent. It teaches you to do your own past life regressions, with hypnosis or guided meditation, to recover lost past life memories for yourself and others.
Dr. Goldberg developed the technique and field of progressing patients into future lives in 1977. In this book he reveals the implications of karma in our lives, how we are affected by reincarnation, and how hypnosis can reveal our pasts and our futures. He also includes some enthralling case histories from the 35,000 past- and future-life regressions (of some 14,000 individuals) he has conducted.
Fear is running rampant on our world and it is blinding many to the inner guiding voice of their soul, and keeping us from creating a better world. We can all transcend our fears by embracing a few higher truths and increasing our awareness of a few important points.
A World of Fear
Our world is dominated by fear. Fear of terrorism, fear of getting old, fear of death, fear of cancer, fear of whatever — you name it. The mainstream media bombards us with bad news. Commercial interests play on our many insecurities and fears to sell product.
Our fears are reflected in the wars we wage. The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on you name it. Our fears are reflected in the themes and archetypes in our fiction — zombie apocalypse, alien invasion, end-of-the-world, good vs. evil, etc. Our fears are reflected subtlety and not so subtlety in all aspects of our lives and the world we create.
On a personal level, many of us allow the painful or challenging experiences of our past to dominate our thinking and responses in the present. We live in fear of re-experiencing past traumas and become guarded, defensive, and reactive rather than staying open and present.
Perhaps our deepest fears are of not having enough, or not being enough. Of not being able to provide physically for ourselves and not being good enough, worthy enough, deserving enough. Fears that were born from the illusion of limitation our reality encourages. We have become lost in this realm of separation and duality and have come to believe deeply in limitation and separation as absolutes of existence. We have lost touch with our higher self who knows no limitation and no separation from the one and the all.
Blinded by Fear
Fear isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Fear is an aspect of the ego, and a certain amount of it is required to protect and safeguard us as physical beings. But fear has become exaggerated within us well beyond the instinct for protection; becoming a way of life, a constant experience and an inner guiding voice.
Fear was meant to encourage us to be conscious and aware, to be observant of any dangers around us and yet fear now encourages many to be unconscious and unaware of the inner guiding voice of their soul and higher self — their divine presence.
Manipulated by Fear
There are those on our world who are using fear as a tool to divide us, to disconnect us from our inner truth and divine presence, and to disempower us. These people have realized that fear is a powerful tool they can use to control others, achieve their self-serving agendas, and give themselves a false sense of power and self-importance. While they can create circumstances and situations that are calculated to create fearful experiences in many, you can choose to be conscious and aware of your own emotions and reactions and not have fear activated within you.
Fear is a powerful emotion that distracts us from focusing on what’s important. It keeps us focusing on exactly what we don’t want instead of focusing on what we do want. Our fears interfere with our ability to create the best possible outcomes for our lives and the world. Our fears keep us caged within a limited set of possibilities.
As we awaken to the truth of our higher-self, and the wider reality, we realize that our thoughts are creative and that what we focus on we attract. The creative power of thought is largely determined by its duration, consistency, and emotive intensity. Fear is a very strong emotion, and letting it run amok in your head will make you a powerful manifestor of what you DON’T WANT. This is why people who have mastered their minds never dwell on their fears. And, this is why those that seek to empower themselves through controlling others always try to encourage our fears.
Transcending Our Fears
A great shift in the consciousness of humanity is occurring and many of us are beginning to transcend our fears; shifting from the fear-centric responses of the mind and ego to the compassion centric responses of the heart; shifting from fear and judgement to forgiveness and love. Yet many are still caught up in their personal dramas as well as the collective earthly drama. Wars and terrorism everywhere, famine and poverty, disasters of all kinds… There seems to be a lot to be worried about.
There Is Nothing to Fear
As one awakens to the wider reality and their higher self, one becomes less and less attached to all the drama of the world. One begins to see it for what it is, a grand illusion; a game that we are intentionally playing.
Fully embracing a few truths about the wider reality can give you a profoundly different perspective on life’s difficulties and liberate you from the tyranny of your fears.
The real you lives forever.
Existence does not end when your body dies because the real you is not your body. The real you is an eternal non-physical being (your soul) — a thread of universal/source consciousness (God). The real you is connected to your physical body as a vehicle for physical experience. When your body dies your consciousness continues FOREVER.
In the last few moments before physical death, and as you die, you then experience yourself as consciousness free of form. Suddenly, there is no more fear, just peace and a knowing that “all is well” and that death is only a form dissolving. Death is then recognized as ultimately illusory — as illusory as the form you had identified with as yourself.
The real you has no physical needs.
Your soul is a non-physical being — pure energy, pure awareness. It does not need food, it does not need shelter, and it does not need a job or money. Its existence does not depend on any of these things.
The real you cannot be harmed.
You are a thread of universal consciousness and consciousness cannot be harmed by anything. Your body can be harmed, but the consciousness that drives your body cannot be harmed. No matter what happens, the real you is completely unharmed. While every experience leaves an impression on your awareness and your soul, nothing can ever permanently harm your soul, your true nature as a non-physical being, as pure awareness.
The real you is loved completely and unconditionally.
Your soul exists in higher planes of existence that are filled with love and bliss. Love and support are given and received unconditionally. The real you is loved ALWAYS.
The real you chose to incarnate in the Earth game.
Your soul chose to participate in the Earth game and the school of life. You scripted your life and its major themes. You knew it would be challenging, but you were excited to play because you knew that formative growth only comes from real challenges. You were not concerned with the apparent danger of some of the challenges because you understood that it is just a game and the real you can never be harmed.
Shifting from Fear into Love
Imagine if your response to everything in your reality and your world, whether it is a major disaster or a painful experience, was compassion for yourself and EVERYONE involved. Imagine if every experience in your past, which has encouraged you to respond in fear, was altered and erased, instead replaced by a response of compassion. What would that be like? What perspective would you have about the world and would fear even exist or be acknowledged by you? With a history of compassionate responses, how would you react to or feel about areas of your current reality that are causing reactions of fear? Maybe current situations would not even have been manifested by you. Remember that resistance, frustration, anxiety, stress and concern are also aspects of fear.
Exercising compassion allows every situation to be illuminated with light, love, and peace for yourself and all of humanity. Imagine if every person chose to react with compassion — fear would disappear and kindness would blossom in its place. From kindness love is born, the unconditional love of the divine source that can be widely and freely shared because its supply is unlimited. When the love of the divine source is present anything and everything is possible and able to manifest with ease and perfection.
Shifting your reaction from fear to compassion simply requires you to realize and be observant of a few points:
Your fear is illusory.
The lesser you, here on Earth — your egoic self — may be allowing fear to dominate its thoughts and manifest them into your reality, but the truth is that your soul and higher self know no fear. When you fully embrace this truth, it becomes much easier to let go of your fears. By choosing to let go of any fears that arise in you, they can be released and erased. This can take some persistence because fears can be tenacious, but with constant focus on letting your fears go you will begin to feel a freedom birth within you, and as you taste this, it will become easier and easier to release your fears. Through the desire to transcend your fears you are encouraging yourself to observe your fears free from judgement and attachment. Observing and being consciously aware of your fears is the most powerful tool to releasing the habit of fear because only through awareness is change possible. With detachment from fear, you will be able to think and sense with greater clarity, and manifest with greater power.
When you are aware that you have reacted and responded with fear be forgiving to yourself, know that fear is a conditioned habit; it will take time and dedication to shift this conditioning. With awareness you can overcome your automatic fear reactions. Responding with forgiveness whenever you feel a fear reaction starting acts as an opening that allows you to express the higher energies, thought processes, and emotions of compassion. With forgiveness, you encourage your detachment from fear and consciously choose to manifest a loving reality for yourself no matter what occurs and what challenges you face. Practice forgiveness regularly and you will notice a beautiful habit of forgiveness forming.
There are many circumstances occurring on our world right now that are causing terror, pain, and suffering for those involved as well as those who are witnessing. Many of these situations are manifesting because of the strong egos and lack of compassion of the individuals involved, and their inability to sense the love and guidance of their higher self (the divine presence). This causes them to inflict pain upon others.
When we view these horrific circumstances with a wider perspective, we recognize that these circumstances are acting as catalysts for positive shifts in many people. As pain and suffering are witnessed by those around the world, compassion is activated within many people. This activation of compassion opens the individual to the flow of healing energy from their soul and the universe, raising the energetic frequency of our world and all of humanity. This heightened energy is then triggering many more to awaken to the truth of the wider reality and their higher selves.
The more you respond regularly to situations with forgiveness and compassion, the more you will deeply feel the peaceful energy that it produces within you, and in others, and the more you’ll want to share your compassion with yourself and others, birthing a beautiful new pattern within your thoughts, emotions, and the reality you manifest.
If you would like to help energize and manifest a world filled with compassion, please consider repeating the affirmation below regularly.
With the support of Mother Earth and the Creator I now emanate from my soul sacred waves of light carrying compassion to empower the compassion of the Creator within every person upon the Earth. The Earth is a space of compassion and love eternally; this is our collective experience.
Your heart is inviting you to be loving in every moment; it is through compassion and your conscious awareness of fear that you can encourage others to experience the profound love of the Creator, and contribute to the manifestation of a new reality — a reality characterized by cooperation, harmony, peace, and prosperity FOR ALL.
This book illuminates the fundamental elements of Eckhart Tolle’s teaching. At the core of the book is what the author calls ‘the state of presence’, a living in the ‘now’ that is both intensely inspirational and practical. When the pressures of future and past thinking disappear, fear and frustration also vanish, conquered by the moment.
In this article, I’m once again exploring one of my favorite topics — manifestation. It’s a favorite of mine for two reasons; (1) my personal experiences have convinced me that it is very real — the correlation between my thoughts and desires and what appears in my life has been undeniable, (2) The topic is so empowering and important! Realizing your creatorship can dramatically change your life and the world, what could be more important than that.
One of the most epic things about awakening to the wider reality and your wider/higher self is that you come to know that you are a creator and that you are creating every aspect of your personal reality. By embracing your creatorship and understanding the laws of creation, you open the door to freedom and limitlessness, and by stepping through this door you step into your full power.
For those that have not yet discovered their creatorship, as amazing as it sounds, you are creating your reality with your thoughts and beliefs. This is not the objective reality that, up until now, your senses have seemed to indicate and that you have assumed it was. It’s more like a virtual reality — one in which your thoughts control what appears in the game, but in a very fascinating way — what appears is the reflection of your most predominant thoughts and beliefs.
You could think of it as a movie in which you are both the director and the lead actor because you are literally directing the movie of your life, whether you are aware of it or not.
How is this possible? Let’s dive in.
Beyond Space and Time
Our true essence is as beings that exist in a realm that is beyond space and time, a realm where all exists at once. Our true selves are simply threads of universal consciousness, streams of energy and information. We exist within the great conceptual space of the cosmic mind, within an infinite matrix of information.
Space and time are constructs that provide a unique and delicious environment for us to play in. This environment provides experiences of a type unlike anything in our native realms — it provides LINEAR EXPERIENCES. Linear experience is one that gives the impression of progressing and becoming, of time passing, and of continuity and causality.
Linear continuity and causality is the perception that A leads to B, which then leads to C — that each successive state (A>B>C) was a result of the prior state (causality) and that states change smoothly and progressively (continuity). Note I said “perception” of continuity and causality — an inference that this may not be as real as we think, and indeed it isn’t — it’s just a very convincing illusion! This illusion of linear experience is produced by a process akin to a movie projector.
The Cosmic Movie Projector
With a film projector, a “movie” experience is produced by showing the individual frames of the film in rapid succession creating the ILLUSION of motion and time for the viewer. But of course, all the frames are absolutely STILL images, and they all exist SIMULTANEOUSLY — the projectionist can take out the film, spread it out on the floor and view all those frames at the same time.
The experience of our linear reality is produced in a similar manner. Our earthly consciousness, which is a thread and focal point of awareness of Universal consciousness, is viewing individual “still frames of reality” in rapid succession — BILLIONS of times per second — thus creating the illusion of our linear experience. Each of the “frames of reality” is just a static composition of information which our consciousness is “viewing”.
And guess how these “frames of reality” that you are viewing are composed? Your thoughts and beliefs create and/or select portions of the information that are included in these frames! You are composing each successive frame of your reality with your own thoughts! You are creating and directing the movie of your life.
It’s a game where you control what shows up on your screen and hence what you experience, and the rules of the game are the laws of conscious creation!
The Illusion of Time, Continuity, and Causality
So time, as we understand it, is just an illusion — time is NOT flowing, what is actually happening is our focal point of our consciousness is moving or stepping through the information that represents each moment of our reality! This is what produces the “impression” of time.
And believe it or not, even the continuity that we experience is actually optional. If you suddenly make a discrete shift in beliefs, you will experience a sudden discrete shift in your reality — just as a movie can suddenly shift from one scene to a totally different scene. You are not obligated to go from one frame to another frame that is almost the same. There is nothing that is enforcing continuity except our own belief and expectation of it — we are creating all of it with our thoughts and beliefs.
And for the same reason, the past has absolutely no effect on the present — except to the extent that you believe it does. By steadfastly believing that the present is the result of the past we are perpetuating the illusion of linear causality. Cause and effect as we know it does not really exist. The TRUE CAUSE for everything that appears in your reality is your thoughts and beliefs.
Those who have enough faith in their creatorship, and mastery of the laws of creation are able to manifest abrupt discontinuities into reality. Those with this level of mastery, have historically, been few and far between. And those who have witnessed these events have commonly referred to them as MIRACLES and MAGIC.
Miracles, Magic, and Manifestation
This is what miracles and magic are — they are the manifestation of discontinuities into reality. Most people who have witnessed events like these are amazed, and most who have heard about events like these are very skeptical because things like this are not supposed to be possible. Most are completely convinced by the illusion of linear time and causality and believe that these are absolute fundamental properties of reality. But of course, as we now know they are not — they are simply beliefs and expectations that attract experiences consistent with them into reality — it’s like a self-fulling prophecy.
If you could completely suspend your disbelief in what I have been telling you about the mechanics and laws of reality creation, if you could totally embrace your creatorship, you could manifest miracles just like one of the all-time masters did — just like Jesus did. That’s why Jesus said, “with faith you can do these things and more”. Jesus deeply understood what he was, and he completely embraced his creatorship without a shadow of a doubt and hence he could he could manifest miracles.
The Laws of Creation
The laws of creation are fundamentally simple; your predominate thoughts and beliefs attract similar events, circumstances, people, and things into your experience. Yet full mastery of your creatorship can be quite a challenge because there are many nuances and stumbling blocks.
Here are some of the most important.
Your thoughts are the primary mechanism of creation and the more focus and attention you give to those thoughts the more creative power they have. Hence the golden rule; Give plenty of focus and attention to what you want.
A major stumbling block related to this is focusing on what you don’t want rather than what you do want. Many of us have the insidious habit of worrying about all the things that might go wrong — what you don’t want — and it is killing your creative power! The universe doesn’t understand the difference between “I don’t want XYZ” and “I do want XYZ” — in both cases you are drawing XYZ into your experience. This is why worrying is such a major stumbling block and is one of the main reasons why we aren’t manifesting effectively. The golden rule; Focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want!
Another major stumbling block related to focus is our insidious habit of focusing on “what is” and “what was” — basically living in the past — rather than imagining how you want it to be. We are constantly perpetuating more of the same with this mode of thinking. This is why our reality changes very slowly if at all. The golden rule; Pay less attention to what is, and more to imagining it the way you’d like it to be!
Another element that is critical to the effectiveness of your manifesting is your beliefs. Your beliefs shape and constrain the thoughts you have. And here’s the tricky part, most of our beliefs are subconscious and significantly limiting what we consider possible and hence what we can manifest into our reality. Unconscious limiting beliefs are another major stumbling block that is killing your manifestation power. The golden rule; Identify, inspect, and release any beliefs that do not serve you!
Another important element of manifestation is emotion. The emotion associated with your thoughts is where the most of the energy and creative power of thought comes from. Invoking strong positive emotions like excitement, passion, joy, gratitude, and appreciation along with your thoughts will fully empower them. This is why worrying about what you don’t want is so unproductive — the worrisome thoughts are usually associated with fear which is a strong negative emotion which means you are powerfully attracting what you don’t want! Always express strong positive emotions when thinking about what want! And here’s a tip — if what you’re thinking about is invoking negative emotions then you are probably thinking about something you don’t want, so stop it!
Another powerful element of manifestation is your words. The thoughts you speak out loud are announcements to the universe of your thoughts, beliefs, and expectations. Choose your words very carefully because they are like orders to the Universe. The golden rule; Keep every word you speak as positive as possible!
A major stumbling block related to this is talking about what you’re worried about (what you don’t want) and/or complaining about what you don’t like — both of these habits are very dis-empowering, so stop it!
Another very important element for powerful manifestation is expectation. You’ve got to fully expect that that you will receive what you have imagined and desire. If you don’t completely believe and expect it will appear then you’re just shooting yourself in the foot. This is why faith and trust are so important and have been so widely discussed and emphasized. A major stumbling block related to this is doubt, which is the opposite of faith and trust, and it is one of the main reasons that most people are manifesting so ineffectively.
These are but a few of the most important elements of how we create our reality, there is so much more to it, and I’ll be exploring these in future articles as well as in my upcoming book tentatively entitled Mastering Manifestation: The Art and Science of Deliberate Creation — follow the blog to stay tuned.
The Game of Life
We have all been playing a game of pretending to be a human with our blindfolds on. And now we’re starting to awaken and discover that we are in a game already in progress that we can change — that we control what shows up on our screen and hence what we experience.
What a marvelous game! How could we devise a better game than this to perfect ourselves? It’s like the ultimate feedback training system. And it’s imminently fair — what you predominately think about you get, what you are is reflected back to you. Your reality is like a mirror — if you think about crap you get crap, if you think about wonderful things you get wonderful things. In a sense, we are getting exactly what we deserve, or at least exactly what we need to clearly see ourselves and hence have the opportunity to change ourselves if we don’t like what we see. It’s an imminently fair and effective training program — a very exciting and formative game. And you are a player.
Once you realize that you are a player, and you figure out what the rules of the game are you have an opportunity to start playing the game at a whole new level — you can become a master player and custom make your reality.
Why not have fun with this and see how far you can go with the highest thoughts that you can imagine! Envision the most delicious possibilities reflected in your life. Imagine and expect the very best results. Pay no attention to “what is” or “what was”, just imagine it the way you want it to be. And don’t forget that your passion, joy, gratitude, and appreciation add power to what you have created through your imagination and draw it into your experience even more quickly.
Play the game with wonder, joy, and abandon and become a master player! How do you know when you’ve attained mastery? When you are creating wonderful experiences for yourself and everyone around you on a constant basis.
This is another highly recommended book on Law of Attraction and Manifesting. It offers Abraham’s unique perspective on the subject and provides a number of powerful tools and practices that you won’t find elsewhere.
E-Squared could best be described as a lab manual with simple experiments to prove once and for all that reality is malleable, that consciousness trumps matter, and that you shape your life with your mind. Rather than take it on faith, you are invited to conduct nine 48-hour experiments to prove there really is a positive, loving, totally hip force in the universe.
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.
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.
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.
Welcome to my growing collection of essays on the nature of self, life, and the universe. The focus is on spiritual and metaphysical topics and on self-discovery, self-growth, and creating a better world.
Know thyself.— Socrates
The world is going through a shift right now, a great shift in consciousness. People are awakening to their higher selves and their connection with the Universe. We are on the road to a wonderful new era of humanity. One characterized by cooperation, harmony, peace, and prosperity for ALL. Exactly how long this will take to unfold and how smoothly it will go is hard to say, but one thing is for sure, it depends on us — how we think about ourselves and the world, who we are, and what we say and do.
I will be posting articles to share my perspective on a variety of topics. My goal is not to assert that my perspective is “right” but simply to share ideas in the spirit of enlightenment, joy, and empowerment, take what resonates and leave the rest. “Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people.” — Socrates
I “awakened” to my higher-self in the early part of 2014, after having been an atheist/agnostic scientist type with absolutely no spiritual beliefs for most of my life. I’d been in a protracted depression “dark night of the soul”, then suddenly, it dissolved, and an overwhelming feeling of fearlessness, confidence, and power came over me. Then strange and wondrous things began happening — enhanced intuition, constant synchronicities, a heightened sense of the beauty of everything around me, and lots of good luck. Everything fascinated me. I started studying all sorts of topics with a burning passion — like I was on a quest — except I didn’t know why.
After three or four months of constant magic that couldn’t possibly be explained scientifically, I finally threw my hands up in the air and surrendered to the Universe. “OK, OK, I give up. The Universe isn’t what I thought, not with all this divine magic going on. I’ll bet it has something to do with spirituality, and I intend to get to the bottom of it! ” I said in my head. So my quest continued, and I turned my studies towards spirituality and metaphysics. It wasn’t long before I had a completely new understanding of myself and the Universe, and it resonated deeply with me.
Since then the divine magic has continued unabated, and I continue to feel graced by the Universe. I experience frequent moments of utter bliss where I break down and cry like a baby. I’ve continued my spiritual/metaphysical studies, and my understanding continues to grow. What we are is utterly magnificent and with this knowing nothing will ever be the same again!
With my passion for this subject, I knew that I had to make it my purpose to share this knowledge. So I started this blog to share my thoughts, and I’m also working on a couple of books. Writing is new for me so its a challenging path, but there’s nothing else I’d rather be doing!
