In the same way that, on surface appearances, it’s hard to tell the difference between a sunrise and sunset, we are at the threshold of a great awakening, or a greater sleep. What is your view? There is increasing evidence that homo sapiens, also known as humans, are very powerful beings, able to cure themselves of diseases and other life challenges, and help others to be well once again. At the same time, more and more people are sicker, anxious, and more desperate than ever. There many who are convinced that they are at risk, and that someone(s) far greater or more powerful are really pulling the strings and running the show.
If you listen to mass media, and to what the people who bring you these messages think is true, then you may indeed be at risk, because there is far more power in suggestion than most people realize, especially when we are led to think that our thoughts and words have little or no power, but someone else’s does. It doesn’t matter who that “someone else” is to dis-empower you, just that you don’t think you have any power to bring about meaningful change.
One interesting thing to note is that people who have ushered in meaningful changes to humanity knew that the power was within them, irrespective of what anyone may have told them to the contrary.
As long as we think that our thoughts and words have little or no power, powerlessness will be our predominant perceived experience. In truth, a great deal of power is being used — unwittingly and unconsciously — to create our experience when we could as easily and far more joyfully know the converse. One key way to change this pattern is to become less quick to get serious about what we observe and think, and permit ourselves to have fun, be joyful, share life’s pleasures with each other, both simple and profound.
We use virtually everything in the book to justify being serious, to get offended, and ill-at-ease with the moment. We are “on alert” to the slightest “sin” that we, (or someone else) may be “guilty” of, or that others may judge us for. We “bitch and moan” about this injustice and that, this “dangerous” group and that (even though we’ve had no personal experience with them). This pattern of behavior darkens our perspective on life, because it encourages us to stay in a perpetual “Amber Alert” mode of thinking.
If we’re seeing calamity and danger around every corner, and looking at innocent people — neighbors and strangers too — as criminals in hiding, then our mind is over active but the heart is closed. We are in a state of other-induced, but self-maintained powerlessness. An active mind with a closed heart is a recipe for lonely, dangerous and joyless experiences.
Energy follows our attention. Said energy organizes itself according to our take on what we see and feel. We are feeling beings. We can feel with a closed heart, or with an open one. If our heart is closed, fear will be our partner in the feeling. If the heart is open, then courage is, passion is, love is, strength is, conscious power is. We become paradigm shifters. In fear, we simply perpetuate an unsatisfactory status quo.
Healing ourselves is a matter of opening our heart and choosing to love in spite of all the reasons we’ve given ourselves to “protect” it or ration it out conditionally. In so doing, we simply limit the Bounty that Life would naturally return to us. We question why God has forsaken us, when we have closed off our greatest power. No matter what tonic we search for to heal, it begins through, and with the heart.
Healing is not simply a matter of body; it is more so a matter of emotion, mind, and spirit. This is something that pharmaceuticals have no effect on. It is a realm in which you rule. That is, unless you think that you don’t.
When true healing happens, everything changes. We often consider the state of the body to determine whether we’re healthy or not, popular or not, worthy or not, or whether life is “treating us well.” We also look at our bank accounts for largely the same form of validation. However, the Great Validator lives within, and is always present and ready to work on our behalf. Some would refer to this Force as God. Some refer to It by other names, including the Higher Self. We are always one with this Presence.
Our presence in this world is the soul corroborating evidence that a God or Higher Self empowers us, endowing us with free will, which includes the freedom to transcend our challenges, or be victims thereof. However, we rarely think, much less feel Oneness with that Great Power, much less know what that means. Oftentimes, we think we’re alone… in our thoughts, in our drama, in our pain, or in our misery, not knowing that it is we who have permitted, created, or allowed it, or that we possess the power to transform it.
Yet, if, when, and as we come to that place of acceptance of our Creatorhood and Oneness with the God Power that is within us, masquerading as it were, as each of us the hurdles that we placed before us — whether they are physical, financial, relationship, or otherwise — will give us wonderful, confirming feedback as they fall away, one by one. It is great validation that you are indeed a changed being, when you become a Being of conscious, powerful, and wonderful change.
Where you stand on this subject sets the tone for the experiences that unfold for you. In the worst of times for the masses there will be those who prosper, as there will be those who suffer in the best of times. The challenge is getting the masses to understand how its reality is created by the preponderance of thinking and believing. The key point to consider is that the process happens one mind and heart at a time, beginning with one’s self.
I can’t simply change mass consciousness, but I can change my own. On the other hand, if I change my consciousness, I change my being. My vibrational signature changes, in therefore, my reality. And in so doing, I influence the mass consciousness. As the resonance increases, the mass consciousness will eventually change.
