Consciousness: What It Is And How It Can Be Manipulated

Published

on

consciousnessConsciousness goes beyond biology, it is the ‘thing’ that allows us to perceive our external environment. At the same time, our external environment is a result of the level of consciousness that we all operate at.  Quantum physics is revealing that how we perceive our reality is directly responsible for creating our reality. Consciousness is also responsible for shaping our biology, if you look at placebo studies for example, whatever we believe, perceive and are convinced to be of benefit, our bodies will create the chemical flows and biological environment necessary to produce the desired result or cure. The placebo effect is one of the most fascinating aspects of health care, with results that have been proven to work at least fifty percent of the time during treatment of health related problems. Even recent findings, like neuroplasticity give further credence to the power of consciousness, and ability we all have to self-heal. It is a known scientific fact that our biological make up, down to our cells and the external reality around us is shaped by us, our perception, beliefs, emotions, and feelings. How we perceive the world through an internal perspective is responsible for creating and shaping the external world we see around us. Education, biology and medicine have taught us that our brain is responsible for sending different signals to our body, that our brain determines everything we do, this isn’t true. Sure, it’s true that our brain sends signals, and tells our bodies what to do, but we do not recognize that something is communicating with our brain that causes it to react and instruct the body on what to do. What is sending signals to our brain? Our heart is, the place in which you come from, the intent that lay behind your action is important, and can depend on what level of consciousness you operate at. I do not mean to use the word level to imply better or worse.

Research is beginning to show how the heart plays a tremendous role in our lives, far beyond what is commonly known. The heart is responsible for emitting electromagnetic fields that change according to our emotions. Where do our emotions come from? Our emotions are a direct result to how we perceive the enviroment around us. Person A can have a different emotional response than person B even though the event that created the emotional response could be exactly the same.  For example, if two people are making love, and two separate people are observing the love making taking place, they could both have a different emotional response to it, it all depends on what ‘level’ of consciousness they operate at. Another example is war, for some people it might trigger sadness, hate or anger, and for others it might trigger a sense of accomplishment, patriotism and bravery. For others it might just be an experience they no longer resonate with, and view it from a place of neutrality, not judging it but recognizing that  they no longer desire it for this planet. Our emotional response, our reaction to a certain situations depend on a number of factors,  a response of bravery and patriotism usally comes from a manipulation of consciousness. By this I mean many people have been brainwashed to believe that war is necessary, from this programmed belief comes certain emotional responses.

Our reaction to the environment around us also plays an important role in shaping our reality. Can you be calm, and at peace no matter what events are unfolding around you in your external world? The heart has a system of neurons that have both long term and short term memory, and the siglans sent to our brain have a direct effect on the signals that the brain sends to our body. The heart sends a tremendous amount of information to the brain, yet mainstream science assumes the brain is where it all starts.  Our intuition, our heart, our higher self, our soul is what is becomming known as we move through 2013 and beyond.

If we look at perception of reality, it’s changed over time. One hundred years ago, human beings on Earth had a completely different perception of reality, understandably so. Our perception of reality is responsible for creating belief systems, consciousness cannot change, and reality cannot change without letting go of belief systems. When we choose to let go of belief systems, we change our reality simply by having an open mind that’s not afraid of change. Sometimes we hold on to belief systems so much that they become our truth, sometimes we believe our thoughts so much that they become our absolute truth.

Manipulation of consciousness.

 When I say manipulation of consciousness, I mean that the human race has been made to believe, as well as perceive reality in a way that does not represent the true nature of our reality. We are constantly being fed with lies, and tend to believe them without question. Our beleifs about the world and how it is, is directly correlated to how we perceive our environment, which is directly correlated to what level of consciousness we operate at and what type of experience the human race creates for itself. How is our consciousness manipulated? Many examples exist to illustrate how our consciousness has been manipulated. 9/11 is a great example, humanity was convinced of a terrorist attack that was used to justify the invasion of Iraq. This event developed a beleif system in millions, if not billions of people that the world was being attacked by terrorists. From this perception, it allowed many other unethical events to unfold. Another examlpe are UFOs, water fluoridation, mass media, health care and education. One of my most favourite examples is the energy industry. If we see alternative energy methods presented to us on tv, and even being implimented by multinational corporations, we believe that is the be all and end all of solutions. Did you know that we have zero point energy devices available?

It is no longer a secret that certain concepts, findings and aspects of our reality are concealed from the human race. We give our power over to a small group of elite and the corporations they run, and we are convined that the issues on planet Earth are being delt with. Concealment of certain aspects of reality has the potential to keep us creating the same experience for human beings on the planet, it has the ability to keep us in a perception lockdown, not knowing that there are other elements of reality that could completly change the percetpion of the human being, and how they operate. We have been taken out of touch with ourselves, and who we really are.

It’s 2013 now, and the world is moving through a period of transparency.  Human beings are beginning to see through the viel that has blinded the masses. We are starting to question activities on planet Earth and why we operate the way we do. If you were an alien looking down on the planet, i’m sure you would scratch your head. It just doesn’t make sense, and more information is presenting itself to show us that we have to do it collectively. We have to realise that we are all one human race, on planet Earth and that there is no separation between us. We are all literally facets of one another, we created everything we see here today. It’s time to stop complaining and just create something new, it’s as simple as that.

An Animation That Beautifully Explores ‘The War On Consciousness’

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Many feel there is a great effort to suppress human consciousness. Not just our will, but the exploration of who we truly are. This shows up in many ways, originating top-down from corporations to governments etc.

  • Reflect On:

    There is no actual 'war.' This is a state of perception. If we see it as war, we create fighting. Instead, let's simply evolve and expand our consciousness knowing we're more powerful than those who suppress. Spreading knowledge and living it is key.

The animation below is great and Graham Hancock’s message in it is also powerful, but I want to address something important quickly before we start, as what I’m about to say is a crucial part of the message we have been working so hard to convey here at CE since inception.

I get that ‘the war on consciousness’ is a figure of speech in the case of this talk, but with 10 years working in this field of journalism and consciousness, I do see many of us getting caught up in the idea that we have to fight and that there is a war to be won.

I see this as a state of consciousness that will keep us locked in a state of disconnection and loss of power.

Moving Beyond A Key Myth

One of the biggest myths that gets spread around this movement is that we must get angry to change the world. The truth is, some of us might get angry at first, and that’s totally fine! But we have to shift beyond the consciousness of being angry about our world before we can change it in any way that will TRULY cause change.

When we change things out of anger, spite, judgement or anxiety, we don’t create systems from the heart, this we will need to break them down again in a very short time. Not because we have evolved beyond them again, but because they are systems created from a polarized state of being. THIS is what we’re moving beyond in this shift.

Change Starts Within.

This is neutrality in action. This is how we evolve beyond what we see in our world.

What does it mean to evolve beyond it? It’s to be in a state of being and emotion where these events can no longer happen. When you assume you must fight for something, you are saying that there needs to be a fight, thus you are met with a fight. That emotion and idea comes from a disconnected state of consciousness where we can still create that experience.

If we as individuals evolve beyond the need for the fight, it would mean to be in a state of being where we do not need to see the fight. That comes from changing our view and perception of something.

Being present, being here now, and not identifying so strongly with the body, our identity, culture, skin color, struggle etc is powerful. We instead see and live in a state of being where we practice the knowing of our pure potential, living through the heart, collaborative oneness and true heart guidance.

Thus, to evolve beyond it is to change your state of being so that this type of reality no longer exists as it can’t be created from that new state of being. When we achieve this collectively, it no longer exists in our world.

Now that I got that out of the way, one last note is, Graham Hancock will speak of psychedelics in his talk. They have become incredibly trendy today, and while they can help people, research is suggesting this happens when done in specific ways and with specific intentions. Many are starting to put all their power into these plants as if it will do the work for them. They don’t, and won’t.

You can also achieve these exact same insights without the use of these plants. It’s important we maintain a grounded and realistic approach to these plants so they can be used with respect and for their intended purpose. We explore the purpose of psychedelics deeply in an episode of The Collective Evolution Podcast here.

Transcript

What is death? Our materialist science reduces everything to matter, materialist science in the West says that we are just meat, we’re just our bodies. So when the brain is dead, that’s the end of consciousness, there is no life after death, there is no soul; we just rot and are gone. Actually, many honest scientists should admit that consciousness is the greatest mystery of science and that we don’t know exactly how it works.

The brain is involved in it some way but we’re not sure how. It could be that the brain generates consciousness the way a generator makes electricity, if you hold to that paradigm, then, of course, you can’t believe in life after death, when the generator’s broken, consciousness is gone. But it’s equally possible that the relationship — and nothing in neuroscience rules it out – that the relationship is more like the relationship of the TV signal to the TV set, and in that case, when the TV set is broken, of course the TV signal continues. And this is the paradigm of all spiritual traditions, that we are immortal souls temporarily incarnated in these physical forms.

If we want to understand consciousness, the last people we should ask are materialist scientists. Instead, we should look at ancient cultures, like the Egyptians, who highly valued dream states. Many ancient cultures around the world used hallucinogenic plants to understand consciousness and expand their minds.

However, in today’s society, visionary plants are highly illegal because they promote a state of consciousness that does not agree with the agenda of profit. Substances, like coffee, alcohol, sugar and pharmaceuticals, are forced upon the population, but possession of even small quantities of cannabis, Ayahuasca or psilocybin will land you in jail. If we do not recognize the right of adult sovereignty over consciousness, then we can NOT claim to be free.

Look at what our moderns state of consciousness has done. We have destroyed the natural gifts of the earth in pursuit of short-term, selfish gain. We must reconnect with spirit immediately or else we will encounter disaster. Visionary plants could be the remedy for our current sickness.

Smiling At Cashiers & Other Sparks Of Divinity

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    It is possible to have profound experiences in some of the most mundane encounters with others.

  • Reflect On:

    How would your life change if every interaction you had with other people was infused with the conviction that we are all one?

It’s one of the things I like to do, as the receipt is being put in my hand: offer a grateful ‘thank-you,’ and look in the cashier’s eyes for an extra split-second and smile, and see if they are ready to share a spark of divinity that crosses between our souls.

Sometimes they are, as happened to me recently at a ‘No Frills’ express lane. I looked at the girl as she handed me the bill, she looked at me, and then came the recognition in her eyes, in her smile, whether conscious or not, that we are connected, that we see each other, that we are grateful to be alive to have this kind of experience. Magic.

Sometimes the cashier is not ready, and my smile is met with a furtive glance, back to the next matter at hand, the next customer in line. No matter. No effort to connect is wasted. Some of the energy still gets through and gives the person a lift.

Sometimes it is me who is not ready, and the smile from the cashier awakens me into appreciation. Imagine, they are the ones working a long, tiring, repetitive job and they take a moment to wake ME up!

When the cashier is efficient, friendly, light, then my appreciation for what they are doing pours out into that moment. When the cashier is slow, tired, fed-up, it is not so easy for me. But at times, I am prepared to take the opportunity to help reconnect that person to the vitality of life. Have you ever eased a busy, ragged, overwhelmed cashier into a moment of divinity with a warm smile of empathy? Have you ever made a frowning, wrinkled face light up? Try it! This may be the best experience of them all.

Learned Practice

I’m just grateful to have found this practice. It did not come naturally to me. I was always shy, cautious, pensive, ‘in my head’. It was through years of watching a few trusted friends, seeing how they interacted easily and openly with strangers, that I started to try to adopt a new approach.

I had long been a student of philosophy and spirituality. But if the study of esoteric matters remains on the pages, in the words, in the concepts, simply a tool of the intellect to make one feel smart, evolved, superior, then the whole point is missed, not only about spiritual knowledge but about life itself.

At first, the practice for me was about trying to feel connected myself; it served to make me feel more comfortable in the world, especially around other people. As I continued to practice, and expand that practice into other situations, not just with strangers but with friends, loved ones, enemies, it really broadened and deepened my understanding of spiritual principles which I had previously fancied myself an expert in. Perhaps one of the most important realizations I’ve had through all this is that true knowledge is humbling. If one’s knowledge base serves to inflate one’s sense of self-importance in the world in comparison to other people, then it is not true knowledge.

The Unbearable Lightness Of Being

Our lives on this planet are fraught with difficult emotions: fear, sadness, anxiety, and many others. One of the great healing salves is to endeavor to demonstrate to others the knowledge that we are all one. Most likely, you have had this kind of experience in some situations in your life, like smiling at a cashier or hugging a loved one. The key to a great life is to work to expand this experience into all our interactions with people, to overcome the barriers of separation, not only in others but especially the ones within ourselves.

This is the task of the bringers of light. And whether we are conscious of it or not, we are all here to bring our light upon the darkness, and collectively transform our world into our shared vision of harmony.

Expanding Reality Through Consciousness: A Fascinating Interview With A Neurosurgeon

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Joe recently sat down with Dr. Mario Beauregard for an in-depth discussion into consciousness, current events and how we can begin responding to the emerging desire for change.

  • Reflect On:

    What direction is our global society moving towards with regards to understanding the true nature of consciousness? Is a new consciousness emerging within us that no longer resonates with the 'old world?'

Mario Beauregard, PhD., is a neuroscientist currently affiliated with the Department of Psychology, University of Arizona. He has received a bachelor degree in psychology and a doctorate degree in neuroscience from the University of Montreal. He has also underwent postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Texas Medical School (Houston) and the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), McGill University.

Dr. Beauregard is the author of more than 100 publications (articles, essays, book chapters) in neuroscience, psychology, and psychiatry. He was the first neuroscientist to use neuroimaging to investigate the neural underpinnings of voluntary control in relation to emotion. Because of his research into the neuroscience of consciousness, he was selected (2000) by the World Media Net to be one of the “One Hundred Pioneers of the 21st Century.”

In the episode below, Collective Evolution founder Joe Martino and Dr. Beauregard sit down to discuss what transhumanism, AI, near death experiences and our current events have in common, which is consciousness. They all stem from what level of consciousness we are creating these things out of. Joe explores this topic with Dr. Beauregard in a recent episode of The Collective Evolution Show on CETV.

CETV is a platform we created to combat the tremendous amount of censorship and demonetization we have experienced and are currently experiencing.
