Collective Consciousness – What It Is, How It Shapes Us, How Acknowledging It Will Help Us Heal Our World

Collective Consciousness – What It Is, How It Shapes Us, How Acknowledging It Will Help Us Heal Our World

When I first started receiving messages from guides about earth and humanity, I didn’t know what the “collective conscious” was. However, this would change, as what was conveyed to me was primarily founded upon the idea of a collective consciousness and how we shape it and it shapes us. In fact, the main thing these guides want humanity to understand is that we have power over what happens externally; that is, we have power to divert the world from the destructive course it has been on. Not that we need to be afraid should we continue down this destructive path. Most of what we would be facing—if we do—is our collective fear of loss, and of not being or having enough. This has been the driving force behind mankind’s greed for more and more and more. This said, we do have power over whether we will spiritually evolve enough—and lovingly unify—to see the disbanding of nuclear and other forms of toxic or corrupt “power systems” and potential threats that can have the most devastating consequences for life on this planet and for the human race.

The Symbolism of the Lotus and the Muddy Pond

What are the “Lotus” and the “Muddy Pond” and what do these powerful Buddhist symbols represent? According to the Lalitavistara: “The spirit of the best of men is spotless, like the new lotus in the muddy water which does not adhere to it.”

The Song of the White Buffalo Calf Woman

The Song of the White Buffalo Calf Woman

“The next phase of the world will see a return to recognizing sacredness. For a long time, sacredness was lost when you would greet a person, a creature or a part of nature. Now the world can enter a new phase where the focus is not merely an attempt to use the natural world and its creatures solely as a means to create something lifeless or transitory to indulge in or worship. In place of this, you can come to greet and revere the natural world–as your companion on your Earth journey–through recognizing the holy spark you share.”

Using the Law of Attraction Backwards?

Posted by on May 3, 2013

Using the Law of Attraction Backwards?

When the Law of Attraction principles started circulating in the 1990’s, there was less of a movement toward social and ecological consciousness as there is now. So, during this current time frame, we may now find that many individuals are beginning to feel turned off by the former use of the Law of Attraction and its focus on material prosperity and money. After all, many of us may aspire to embrace ways of living that reflect simplicity, eco-sustainability, unity consciousness and less reliance on competition, external institutions and/or ego; which this can appear to turn the Law of Attraction on its head in some ways (how we have tended to view it, that is). Sites are beginning to spring up that offer ways to market more “spiritually” and “ethically,” while ascension itself is being redefined by new leaders who are emerging to offer a fresh and more enlightened approach.

2013 Predictions and Updates

2013 Predictions and Updates

They warn me something affects water, as in contaminates it, like oil spill or nuclear accident or toxic issue. Something with a polluting effect. It brings a lot of concern. I had said on my own radio show that the ‘big event’ that I saw happening in February was a meteor or something coming from the sky. In the chat room, I was informed there was an asteroid DA2013 that was going to pass by earth at a close. I told others that if it doesn’t hit then it still causes some sort of disaster, cause my guides seemed to feel it was going to have an environmental impact. This February a meteor did hit in Russia (overseas)…

Forward & Introduction

We live in an age where our spiritual beliefs, intentions, and energy are constantly changing. However, our fear of change, concerning the material realm, leaves us stuck and destined to repeat the same lessons in ever more, potentially destructive ways. As our spiritual and material worlds continue to diverge, and this “split” continues to widen, my hope is that a new accountability and willingness to love–beyond a superficial level-may become more actualized, so that balance can be restored…

Chapter 1 – Philosophical Splitting: A New Age Dilemma

Prior to 2010, I had experienced various uncomfortable feelings and inner voices that told me something was not quite right concerning my spiritual beliefs and practices. However, I did not at the time realize that what was creating most of the conflict was my attempt to go along with abundance-focused philosophies (as prescribed by the leading spiritual gurus within the new age community), while simultaneously seeking to embrace other new age ideals such as nonduality and oneness. In fact, I did not recognize that my spiritual and material goals expressed opposite agendas….

Chapter 2 – Awakening to The Dream of Life

Chapter 2 – Awakening to The Dream of Life

I presume that most new-agers readily accept as truth the notion that life is in many ways an illusion. For me, I now see life much like a dream; one which we do have free will and can dream whatever our hearts desire. However, our heart’s desires can reflect both conscious and subconscious levels of desire, will, thought, and emotion. As a result, we may not always be lucid concerning the choices we make or why we make them. Not that the choices we make are necessarily ‘good’ or ‘bad.’ They merely affect our earthbound experience, rather than affecting who we truly are in Spirit….

Chapter 3 (Part 1) – The Law of Attraction – Its Real Secret

Chapter 3 (Part 1) – The Law of Attraction – Its Real Secret

So, what is going on with the Law of Attraction? Men who had not fully awakened became teachers of metaphysical concepts. They taught such concepts from a state of not fully knowing their lotus Self. Because they did not fully know their lotus Self, they were unable to teach others how to fill an inner void with anything other than aspects of the muddy pond. If they had first understood that such a void can only be filled with self-love and Self-understanding, things would be very different. While my intention is not to fault them for what they did not understand, they taught metaphysical concepts from a perspective that involved listening to what their egos told them was the way for such concepts to be used: to advance in the world of form, in order to try to fill an inner void through external means…

Chapter 3 (Part 2) Giving The Law of Attraction A Meaning & Purpose

Chapter 3  (Part 2) Giving The Law of Attraction A Meaning & Purpose

In the first part of this chapter, I discussed how ideally the principles of the Law of Attraction could be used in a more conscious manner after one had fully awakened, rather than before. Otherwise, we would likely end up using what we know of these metaphysical principles to become further lost in the muddy pond of our dreaming, as opposed to realizing our lotus nature within. This does not mean, however, that the Law of Attraction does not have a useful purpose for those wishing to awaken…

Chapter 4 – The Various Levels of Consciousness & Thought

In the last chapter, I discussed the Law of Attraction in a very personal sense as it relates to dreaming the personal dream of life. I had actually been planning to write a book a few years ago about my feeling that the prevailing understanding of the Law of Attraction is incomplete. I am glad that I waited, because I had not yet grasped that there existed a whole other dimension of thought and manifestation that I had never before considered….

Chapter 5 – Functioning In A Dysfunctional World

Chapter 5 – Functioning In A Dysfunctional World

Possibly, we can observe that some of the prevailing issues of our world do not necessarily point to an imbalance within ourselves as individuals. By exhibiting signs of stress and imbalance, perhaps we are just having a normal reaction to a world mind-set that is insane. The world, after all, has become a place where an increasing body of individuals can only cope by succumbing to various addictions, healing efforts, and reliance on psychiatric medications. Observing this, we may wish to ask ourselves at what point will the world become sufficiently intolerable that we will become brave enough to examine what is driving our societal wants, fears, and definitions, i.e. such as of success and failure? At what point will the world’s dysfunction become so exhausting that we will choose to let go of the need to exhaust ourselves?

Chapter 6 – Illuminati Conspiracies: As Without, So Within

If you have never heard of the illuminati or other various conspiracies, you are not alone. I did not really know anything about conspiracies until 2009 when I began dating a man who was interested in certain types of documentaries. It was a real revelation. What I learned the most was that while various documentaries seem to blame an outside force for all of the world’s problems, I saw things a bit differently. In essence, I saw a bigger picture of ‘as without, so within’ (see glossary). I even felt a bit confused that others were not seeing it as well….
