angels3Imagine having the perspective of the angels and invisible teachers that watch over our world for a moment. The insight, clarity and understanding from this vantage point would be astonishing. Being able to experience the mental, emotional and energetic states of all beings as they truly are in each moment would be an amazing perspective to behold. Believe it or not, there are groups of non-physical beings who watch over us individually and our planet as a whole. Each of us has a strong and intimate relationship with these beings that extends beyond our physical reality. They are with us at this very moment, if we can only just be still enough to feel their presence. Usually thought of as angels, guides, teachers and our spiritual family, they assist us by providing intuitive guidance, inspired thought, creative insight and a multitude of other ingenious forms of divine assistance that we cannot fully comprehend right now.

To appreciate and experience this relationship firsthand, it helps to develop stillness of mind through conscious breathing and regular meditation practice. Being receptive is key. Call on your guides in a genuine manner and be open to receiving unexpected forms of assistance. These teachers are found by focusing your attention inward; they are not “out there” somewhere. Even if we deny their existence, their help is still ongoing and available to us, especially in times of great need or danger, where we often act in inexplicable ways without fully realizing why.

Why are these Angels here with us? Part of the reason is to remind us where we really come from and of our true purpose for being in the world. We each have very specific reasons for being in these bodies at this time, which will make full use of the gifts we bring from beyond the physical realm. No matter how wealthy, successful or stimulated we are, until we work towards actualizing this greater purpose, we will always feel unfulfilled and uneasy deep down. It is important that we understand this. We are each here to activate the deeper spiritual Knowledge within ourselves–our true connection to God–which goes far beyond the intellectual mind and is the source of all power and love in the universe.

“Knowledge is the deeper spiritual mind that the Creator has given to each person. It is the source of all meaningful action, contribution and relationships. It is our natural inner guidance system. Its reality is mysterious, but its presence can be directly experienced. Knowledge is remarkably wise and effective in guiding each person in finding his or her right relationships, work and contribution. It is equally effective in preparing one to recognize the many pitfalls and deceptions that exist along the way. It is the basis for seeing, knowing and acting with certainty and strength. It is the foundation of life.” — via Steps to Knowledge

SoH3I would like to share with you a powerful new book called Secrets of Heaven, the latest release from the New Message from God world teachings. The book contains 300 short mystery teachings that have the potential to inspire you at a deep and genuine level. It is a great book that you can pick up at any page and find piercing insights to contemplate and motivate you back on track. I find it incredible that reading just a few short sentences can move me at the level of spirit like some of these passages do.

The hidden truths and wisdom found within these pages were first revealed to messenger Marshall Vian Summers in a series of mysterious angelic encounters starting in 1983 in the deserts of the American Southwest. For the past 30 years, Summers has continued to receive these profound communications, which are now digitally recorded as they are originally received and then transcribed. Listening to the voice that comes through Summers is very unique; it is unlike any human voice I have ever heard and is truly a powerful presence to behold. My inner knowing confirms to me that the Angelic Assembly is speaking through Summers as one voice and this continues to inspire me to be of service while I am here in this body.

“From the depths of Mystery come the Secrets of Heaven. They have come to take you deeper into the experience of mystery and purpose that surrounds your presence in the world. The Angels of Heaven seek to share with you what has long been forgotten in the world. Miraculously, as if whispered across time and space, these secrets have now come to you. You have found them.

At a time of great change in the world, Heaven seeks to reveal to you the long-forgotten truths that once guided the prophets, poets, messengers and mystics throughout the ages. Here the ancient memory and awareness that dwells within you can be rekindled, revealing your greater gifts and purpose in the world. The Secrets of Heaven hold the power to unlock these gifts, deep at the heart of humanity. With these gifts, there is new hope for the world.

Heaven asks you to receive its secrets. Each secret is a window into a greater reality. Each secret is an opportunity to peer through the looking glass, and see ourselves as we are seen from above. Now we are looking through the eyes of Heaven to see ourselves, others and the world as never before.” — from the book cover

The New Message is the most profound and direct set of teachings that I have come across in my life. Why is it so powerful? Because it provides a fresh and universal perspective from the Creator when we need it most. It is not based on any existing world religion and is meant for all regardless of background, religion, culture or creed. It helps us to understand how we fit into a universe that is filled with intelligent life at all levels of evolution — including those beings that do not have our best interests at heart. It has helped me move beyond just a human perspective of all things, beginning with the development of a universal identity and awareness, which allows me to appreciate that we are part of an even bigger panorama of life. It acknowledges the grave challenges that we face now and in the future: surviving the Great Waves of Change and facing extraterrestrial intervention and competition from beyond the world. I find that the New Message addresses these vital issues with piercing clarity and honesty, written in a way that even a 10 year old child could understand it.

While the New Message may be rejected and opposed by many, there is an important message that it aims to make clear: If we do not successfully recognize and navigate the crucial challenges ahead, humanity will face a grave and precipitous decline in the future, leading to tremendous loss and untold suffering. Our world system is very vulnerable in many ways and a great shakeup or collapse in its functioning would change everything. I believe that accepting failure as a possibility is not a negative viewpoint, it is simply recognizing what is possible. What is up ahead is not set in stone, as we are all active contributors to its unfolding, but continuing to sow the seeds of our demise as a collective is not a wise decision.

Right now, we are vastly underestimating the misuse and abuse of our planet and its resources and what this will mean for our future. It is also becoming increasingly evident that we are being visited by an increasing number of extraterrestrial forces both in our skies and underground. In many cases these are beings who are here to deceive us and capitalize on our weaknesses, committing serious violations and abuses to humans worldwide almost totally in secret. I feel that we cannot afford to keep burying our heads in the sand on these issues. Human greed, arrogance and ignorance are some of our biggest vices and they must be overcome if we are to have any chance at becoming a free and self-sufficient interplanetary race. It is up to us to individually reclaim our ability to serve as vehicles for Spirit and Knowledge to express itself through us, for humanity needs strong, dedicated and effective individuals now and in the challenging times ahead.

The fate of humanity will be determined in the next 20 years—the condition of the world, the condition of the human family, the fate and the future of human civilization. You are no longer alone in the world or even in the universe. Of course. You do not know what is occurring and what is coming over the horizon because you are too afraid to see and too arrogant, assuming that you know. That is why the Revelation must be given to show you what you cannot see and do not know. beyond human speculation and estimation. This is embedded in all of the Teachings of the New Message.” — from The Recitation, Apr. 9, 2011

I do not share this with you to incite fear. Rather, I share this with you to inspire your courage and willingness to be of service to a world and race that is truly in need. Your contribution is needed and this is why you came here — to help and serve during this time of difficult transition. So I invite you to consider the following secrets deeply and with your full attention, taking a moment to be with them and allowing them to resonate at a deeper level. There are so many that I would like to share with you, but for brevity’s sake, I have included 45 in this article for you to consider and take from them what you will.

The Angelic Presence

#1: We are above the surface of your world, and yet your environment is as transparent to us as a shallow pond with fish. Even more so, since we have lived in that pond so many times ourselves. How much more we know. If the fish could but listen to the thoughts of its observers who stand over its domain, it could learn of everything else—of the trees and the sky, the flowers, the source of the water that feeds its pond and the destiny of the water that is drained from its pond. It is the same for you. You could learn what lies beyond your domain, for like the fish, you live within a whole universe, not within a little pond. Though the fish may live its entire life in such a small place, it swims in the whole universe, with the sky and the stars above it and below it as well. Is this not also true with you?

#2: We make ourselves public so that you may know our presence and know that there is a Master Plan. It is this Plan that you must now become aware of, for until you do, your life will be aimless, without certain purpose, with only your errors to teach you.

#3: We wish for you all to receive the joy that awaits you. In our world, there is joy. There are very few in this world who can contain the joy that we feel. We are not bound by what cannot succeed. We are not hopeless. We are not alone.

#48: We know how to resolve the difficulties that the world faces because we have resolved them for ourselves.

#133: Many of you will wonder who we are. We are what you will become.

#120: Our names are not known in the world. It is because our charge is not this world alone. There are many Teachers who attend to the world singularly. It is their purpose to do so. And yet our charge is to unite this world and prepare it for the Greater Community.

#231: We are bound to the physical by our obligations and desire to serve, which are the same. We have access to a Greater Reality, yet we exist here. We are nourished by this Greater Reality, and that is why we can exist in our capacity without misery. We serve our Spiritual Family, whom we love. We know our limits. We take full advantage of our strengths. We follow our Teachers, whom you cannot hear. We represent them as they represent those beyond them.

#169: It is not important whether you believe in our presence or not. This can only be known, and belief adds little testimony to it.

The Role of God

#5: God must enter a world where God is not welcome, in ways that do not generate fear and panic amongst those who believe the world is their only reality. It is for this reason that the Will of God manifests itself in subtle and ingenious ways in this world.

#10: God answers through the Teachers. They are God’s answer. They can translate the Will of God into an experience that you can accept, recognize and appreciate. It is through these relationships that the Will of God will become ever present to you.

#285: You need a larger perspective to comprehend the work of God. God is not human. God does not think like a human. God is not made in your image. God has no image. The Source of all life accounts for all life.

Preparation for Great Changes Ahead

#11: Now the old age draws to an end. Difficult will its ending be and turbulent. And yet you are preparing for the advent of this change and the beginning of a new order. The turmoil that you have felt in your individual lives is an indication that you are in preparation for a world in change.

#147: Your world is in a predictable stage of evolution. Think not it is unique, for all civilizations pass through these difficult transition periods. Many of them fail. Humanity is in the process of entering a more mature state.

#220: In this period of time, because you all sense imminent change, you react according to your personal inclinations. Some seek to revitalize old traditions and to establish old roots, while others seek to break all traditions and roots. Some attempt to reach God and escape being in the world, while others fall into despair. These are but different responses to the same basic feeling.

#173: The events to come will require a shift in reality of the Earth’s inhabitants. They must change or struggle against what they now experience. It is but this alone that they anticipate in their attempts to revive the old religions, systems and values, many of which have served a valuable purpose, yet in essence are long past. Are not the preparations of this century with its revivals, its new understandings, its outbreaks of conflict and its technological development but a preparation for what lies beyond in the new centuries to come? Has not all of this been building so rapidly towards a major turning point, as if racing to a finish that is in itself but a new beginning?

Walking The Path

#56: There is a great emphasis placed on those who respond to an inner calling. They have such importance. We gather around them. They hold the promise of renewal and rejuvenation for your world.

#100: Everyone wants to know the answer without making the journey. It is the journey that is the answer.

#158: Your heart will direct you. It is this we have spoken of before. Listen to your heart. It is not your emotions that we speak of, but your Knowledge.

#137: To be set on the path of good does not always look good. To learn of God does not always seem holy. To learn of Wisdom is certainly beyond human logic.

#12: When the mind is joined with Spirit, it is in its true role. It recognizes its function and is capable of fulfilling it perfectly.

#142: Many have attempted to reach God according to their own concepts and have become estranged from life as a result.

Divine Assistance

#241: Inner Guidance is simply the re-establishment of an established relationship. This is its true meaning. Though it seems remarkable to the one who receives it, it is simply a re-establishment of an old bond, as if an old friend has re-entered your life for a specific purpose.

#127: Contact with the Teachers is an exercise in remembering your true mind and your true relationships. The purpose inherent in this is to call you into service.

#128: You are guardians of a treasure unknowingly. Your treasure is your lineage, the accrued learning of all of your activities here and abroad.

#154: If you are to recall your lineage and with it the knowledge of your mission here, you must be able to expand beyond your human identity and affairs and yet bring all that you discover back to serve them.

Higher Purpose

#99: If you have purpose, you will teach it. If you do not have purpose, you must seek it.

#134: Your life has two possibilities. You will find your purpose and fulfill it, or you will not. It is only your success in this matter that you will reflect upon once you leave. For upon leaving the world, you will leave all the world’s preoccupations, leaving you with your one purpose, fulfilled or not.

#179: Inner Knowledge, true purpose, the presence of the Teachers—all sound an inner calling that must grow in strength and scope as it is attended to and utilized, recognized and applied. All that is in contradiction to this at some point will be recognized and relinquished as unwanted, as merely hindering that natural return of the heart.

#83: Knowledge brings responsibility, and purpose always has a calling. Indeed, the function of purpose is the response to a calling. You cannot understand your purpose without acting upon it. This action will call for perhaps a greater participation and understanding than you have ever known.

Learning Beyond The World

#65: Think not there will be an end to learning after you have left the world. This world is only a beginning.

#68: Being within a body in the world necessitates a certain level of ignorance. Accept this. Do not strive for total awareness, or you will neglect what can actually be done here.

#72: Your work now is within the world. You cannot leave here until your work is done. If you destroy your learning vehicle, you will simply have to wait and return again. Indeed, you will be anxious to return, for as you wait, you will recognize the opportunities that you missed. Recognizing your errors, you will be anxious to return.

#145: Your learning predicaments here are the same as they are everywhere. You must be sensible in this matter, for you see, your world will be visited in very visible ways by races in the Greater Community, and you will be all excited because you may think it is the arrival of enlightened ones who possess great technological advancements that will free your people. Do not be foolish.

Emerging into the Greater Community of Intelligent Life

#88: It is essential that the world undergo its transition into the Greater Community. It is the end of childhood, and with it many things will pass. Do not be concerned with complete destruction, for that is not the way of things. Be concerned instead with supporting the world through this state of transition.

#171: The values of this world will be so affected by your emergence into the Greater Community. There has never been an impact so great upon the consciousness of those who dwell here nor one of such grave consequences. Religion, art, philosophy, culture, the foundations of government, law and ethics—all will be greatly affected.

#126: Be prepared, then, for the visitation of those from the Greater Community. Yet you must be counseled. They are not all of good intention. A young adolescent entering the world of adults will discover the world through exposure. Many ideals and hopes perhaps will be lost encountering the real nature and state of those who are met. Thus it is with the emergence of this world into the Greater Community. Why is this relevant to you? It is relevant because it represents the time in history during which you have entered the world. It is your responsibility to serve this history, fulfilling your rightful place and thus completing your mission here.

True Service in the World

#39: The world will need you, and you must commit yourself to it. It is not a world of casual choices but a world of great demands, and the demands that it will make will show you your own greatness.

#260: You must successfully negotiate this world and use your physical abilities. You see, the Plan calls for the use of all your self-created abilities for a greater purpose. That is how everything is brought back into wholeness.

#291: Human beings are not sent here to achieve ultimate reality. That is not your purpose. Your purpose in being here is to complete being here.

#207: You are not needed where everything is wonderful. You are needed where everything is not wonderful. When this life is over, everything can be wonderful. You went to great pains to come into this world, to be where things are not wonderful. In this world, things are not wonderful. Do you understand? Do not lie about this, or you shall reach the epitome of ignorance. You know things are not wonderful.

Taking The Next Step In Life

#214: Do not attempt to reach the highest point, or you will miss the step that is in front of you, the step that has been awaiting you for so long.

#238: All this self-growth, what can it do for you? You either have Knowledge or you do not.

#95: You think your enlightenment occurs within you alone. All progress is the result of relationship. Your enlightenment is the recognition of complete relationship.

#165: We give personal relationships the greatest priority, for they have the greatest potential for strengthening or weakening those who participate.

#229: For some, the realization of Knowledge is devastating in that it discounts so many of their personal beliefs. Knowledge may not appear to be like God at all. It is sober. It is clear. It does not take positions. It directs actions on its own accord without any reference to outside influences.

#226: If you wish to experience the Teachers of God who surround you, call them Angels or whatever you wish, you must have a place within yourself that is open for this. Therefore, empty your mind of grand thoughts. Then you may enter the present, which is the beginning of the experience of Knowledge.

Consciousness

Scientists Show How Gratitude Literally Alters The Human Heart & Molecular Structure Of The Brain

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Scientists have discovered that feelings of gratitude can actually change your brain. Feeling gratitude can also be a great tool for overcoming depression and anxiety. Furthermore, scientists have discovered that the heart sends signals to the brain.

  • Reflect On:

    Every time we struggle with depression, why are we constantly encouraged to take prescription medication when mindfulness techniques actually show more promise?

Gratitude is a funny thing. In some parts of the world, somebody who gets a clean drink of water, some food, or a worn out pair of shoes can be extremely grateful. Meanwhile, somebody else who has all the necessities they need to live can be found complaining about something. What we have today is what we once wanted before, but there is a lingering belief out there that obtaining material possessions is the key to happiness. Sure, this may be true, but that happiness is temporary. The truth is that happiness is an inside job.

It’s a matter of perspective, and in a world where we are constantly made to feel like we are lacking and always ‘wanting’ more, it can be difficult to achieve or experience actual happiness. Many of us are always looking toward external factors to experience joy and happiness, when really it’s all related to internal work. This is something science is just starting to grasp as well, as shown by research coming out of UCLA’s Mindfulness Awareness Research Center. According to them:

Having an attitude of gratitude changes the molecular structure of the brain, keeps gray matter functioning, and makes us healthier and happier. When you feel happiness, the central nervous system is affected. You are more peaceful, less reactive and less resistant. Now that’s a really cool way of taking care of your well-being.

There are many studies showing that people who count their blessings tend to be far happier and experience less depression.  For one study,  researchers recruited people with mental health difficulties, including people suffering from anxiety and depression. The study involved nearly 300 adults who were randomly divided into three groups. This study came from the University of California, Berkeley.

All groups received counselling services, but the first group was also instructed to write one letter of gratitude to another person every week for three weeks, whereas the second group was asked to write about their deepest thoughts and feelings about negative experiences. The third group did not do any writing activity.

What did they find? Compared to the participants who wrote about negative experiences or only received counselling, those who wrote gratitude letters reported significantly better mental health for up to 12 weeks after the writing exercise ended.

This suggests that gratitude writing can be beneficial not just for healthy, well-adjusted individuals, but also for those who struggle with mental health concerns. In fact, it seems, practicing gratitude on top of receiving psychological counseling carries greater benefits than counseling alone, even when that gratitude practice is brief. (source)

Previously, a study on gratitude conducted by Robert A. Emmons, Ph.D. at the University of California, Davis and his colleague Mike McCullough at the University of Miami randomly assigned participants to be given one of three tasks. Each week, participants kept a short journal. One group described five things they were grateful for that had occurred in the past week, another group recorded daily troubles from the previous week that displeased them, and the neutral group was asked to list five events or circumstances that affected them, but they were not told whether to focus on the positive or the negative. Ten weeks later, participants in the gratitude group felt better about their lives as a whole and were a full 25 percent happier than the troubled group. They reported fewer health complaints and exercised an average of 1.5 hours more. (source)

Researchers from Berkeley identified how gratitude might actually work on our minds and bodies. They provided four insights from their research suggesting what causes the psychological benefits of gratitude.

  • Gratitude unshackles us from toxic emotions
  • Gratitude helps even if you don’t share it
  • Gratitude’s benefits take time & practice. You might not feel it right away.
  • Gratitude has lasting effects on the brain

The brain part is very interesting. The researchers at Berkeley used an fMRI scanner to measure brain activity while people from each group did a “pay it forward” task.  During the task, the participants were given money by a “nice person.” This person’s only request was that they pass on the money to someone if they felt grateful.

They did this because they wanted to distinguish between actions motivated by gratitude and actions driven by other motivations like obligation, guilt, or what other people think. This is important because you can’t fake gratitude, you actually have to feel it. If you don’t feel grateful or practice trying to feel grateful by taking the necessary steps like keeping a gratitude journal, you may not experience as much joy and happiness.

In a world where emotions aren’t really taught in school and the importance is put on striving for high grades, it’s not abnormal to have difficulty feeling grateful. This is especially understandable if you’ve been brought up in the western world, which is full of consumerism and competition, a world where we’re constantly made to feel we are lacking so we need to strive for more.

Participants were asked to rate how grateful they felt toward the person giving them the money and how much they wanted to pay it forward to a charitable cause as well as how guilty they thought they would feel if they didn’t help.  They were also given questionnaires to measure how grateful they felt in general.

We found that across the participants, when people felt more grateful, their brain activity was distinct from brain activity related to guilt and the desire to help a cause. More specifically, we found that when people who are generally more grateful gave more money to a cause, they showed greater neural sensitivity in the medial prefrontal cortex, a brain area associated with learning and decision making. This suggests that people who are more grateful are also more attentive to how they express gratitude.

Most interestingly, when we compared those who wrote the gratitude letters with those who didn’t, the gratitude letter writers showed greater activation in the medial prefrontal cortex when they experienced gratitude in the fMRI scanner. This is striking as this effect was found three months after the letter writing began. This indicates that simply expressing gratitude may have lasting effects on the brain. While not conclusive, this finding suggests that practicing gratitude may help train the brain to be more sensitive to the experience of gratitude down the line, and this could contribute to improved mental health over time.

It’s also interesting to note that a recent study just discovered a brain network that “gives rise to feelings of gratitude. The study could spur future investigations into how these ‘building blocks’ transform social information into complex emotions.” (source)

What About The Heart?

The work and research above is great, but where do we actually experience these feelings? They are clearly not a product of our brain, they are products of our consciousness, and when we feel them the brain responds.  Researchers are now discovering that the heart also responds and that it might actually be the heart that’s responsible for sending these signals to the brain.

A group of prestigious and internationally recognized leaders in physics, biophysics, astrophysics, education, mathematics, engineering, cardiology, biofeedback, and psychology (among other disciplines) have been doing some brilliant work over at the Institute of HeartMath.

Their work, among many others, has proven that when a person is feeling really positive emotions like gratitude, love, or appreciation, the heart beats out a different message, which determines what kind of signals are sent to the brain.

Not only that, but because the heart beats out the largest electromagnetic field produced in the body, the Institute has been able to gather a significant amount of data.

According to Rolin McCratey, Ph.D, and Director of Research at Heartmath?)

“Emotional information is actually coded and modulated into these fields. By learning to shift our emotions, we are changing the information coded into the magnetic fields that are radiated by the heart, and that can impact those around us. We are fundamentally and deeply connected with each other and the planet itself.” (source)

Another great point made below by the Institute:

“One important way the heart can speak to and influence the brain is when the heart is coherent – experiencing stable, sine-wavelike pattern in its rhythms. When the heart is coherent, the body, including the brain, begins to experience all sorts of benefits, among them are greater mental clarity and ability, including better decision making.” (source)

In fact, the heart actually sends more signals to the brain than the brain sends in return. What’s even more amusing is the fact that these heart signals (from heart to brain) actually have a significant effect on brain function.

Research findings have shown that as we practice heart coherence and radiate love and compassion, our heart generates a coherent electromagnetic wave into the local field environment that facilitates social coherence, whether in the home, workplace, classroom or sitting around a table. As more individuals radiate heart coherence, it builds an energetic field that makes it easier for others to connect with their heart. So, theoretically it is possible that enough people building individual and social coherence could actually contribute to an unfolding global coherence. –  McCratey

So far, the researchers have discovered that the heart communicates with the brain and body in four ways: neurological communication (nervous system), biophysical communication (pulse wave), biochemical communication (hormones), and energetic communication (electromagnetic fields).

“HeartMath research has demonstrated that different patterns of heart activity (which accompany different emotional states) have distinct effects on cognitive and emotional function. During stress and negative emotions, when the heart rhythm pattern is erratic and disordered, the corresponding pattern of neural signals traveling from the heart to the brain inhibits higher cognitive function. This limits our ability to think clearly, remember, learn, reason, and make effective decisions. In contrast, the more ordered and stable pattern of the heart’s input to the brain during positive emotional states has the opposite effect. It facilitates cognitive function and reinforces positive feelings and emotional stability.” (source)

Gratitude and Positive Feelings Can Change The World

It gets deeper:

Every individual’s energy affects the collective field environment. The means each person’s emotions and intentions generate an energy that affects the field. A first step in diffusing societal stress in the global field is for each of us to take personal responsibility for our own energies. We can do this by increasing our personal coherence and raising our vibratory rate, which helps us become more conscious of the thoughts, feelings, and attitudes that we are feeding the field each day. We have a choice in every moment to take to heart the significance of intentionally managing our energies. This is the free will or local freedom that can create global cohesion. – Dr. Deborah Rozman, the President of Quantum Intech (source)

Overall, this type of work suggests that human consciousness in general can change the world.

One study, for example, was done during the Israel-Lebanon war in the 1980s. Two Harvard University professors organized groups of experienced meditators in Jerusalem, Yugoslavia and the United Sates and asked them to focus their attention on the area of conflict at various intervals over a 27-month period. Over the course of the study, the levels of violence in Lebanon decreased between 40 and 80 percent each time a meditating group was in place. The average number of people killed during the war each day dropped from 12 to three, and war-related injuries fell by 70 percent. (source)

Another great example is a study that was conducted in 1993 in Washington, D.C., which showed a 25 percent drop in crime rates when 2,500 meditators meditated during a specific period of time with that intention.

This type of information is heavily correlated with quantum physics, as many experiments in that area as well as parapsychology (telepathy, remote viewing, distant healing) indicate similar findings. (source)

This holds true as far back as 1999. Statistics professor Jessica Utts at UC Irvine published a paper showing that parapsychological experiments have produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin helps prevent heart attacks. Utts also showed that these results are much stronger than the research behind various drugs like antiplatelets.

This type of work has statistically significant implications, yet is heavily ignored and labelled as pseudoscience simply because it conflicts with long-held beliefs we have trouble letting go of … But times are changing.

“For many years I have worked with researchers doing very careful work [in parapsychology], including a year that I spent full-time working on a classified project for the United States government, to see if we could use these abilities for intelligence gathering during the Cold War… At the end of that project I wrote a report for Congress, stating what I still think is true. The data in support of precognition and possibly other related phenomena are quite strong statistically, and would be widely accepted if it pertained to something more mundane. Yet, most scientists reject the possible reality of these abilities without ever looking at data! And on the other extreme, there are true believers who base their beliefs solely on anecdotes and personal experience. I have asked debunkers if there is any amount of data that would convince them, and they generally have responded by saying, “probably not.” I ask them what original research they have read, and they mostly admit that they haven’t read any. Now there is a definition of pseudo-science-basing conclusions on belief rather than data!” – Utts, Chair of the Statistics Department, UC Irvine (Dean Radin, Real Magic)

The Takeaway

Emotions and other factors associated with consciousness have the power to transform our inner world in ways we don’t fully understand yet. These findings show how consciousness can actually transform the physical/material world, and that’s huge. This validates the idea that if we can change our inner world through gratitude, empathy, compassion, and meditation, we can make our outer world more peaceful.

Q Is Not The Answer; Q Is The Question

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    For many devout followers of the Q movement, it's believed that the fate of our civilization is in the hands of those who are working directly to take down the Deep State, and the ultimate goal is the conviction and punishment of Deep State criminals

  • Reflect On:

    Can we see the Q-anon phenomenon not as the cause but merely as one of many consequences of the 'Great Awakening' humanity is going through?

Let’s assume, for the purposes of this article, that Q-Anon is indeed what a consensus of Q followers believe it to be: an alliance of highly placed people in politics, intelligence, and the military who, in coordination with Donald Trump, are seeking to remove the massive control structure referred to as the Deep State from their seat of power. Even if you are a non-believer of Q, the point of this article will remain the same.

There can be no contesting that the Q movement has galvanized a great number of Americans (and others around the world) who care about the constitution and the rule of law, whom Q refers to as ‘patriots.’ This group of people have found something to believe in. They have great hopes that the criminal and even treasonous behavior that has been going on behind the scenes in every sphere of activity–political, social, economic–will be fully revealed and fully terminated.

Fair enough. But those of us who identify as patriots or truth-seekers have to ask ourselves: Are we personally achieving our part of the mission for which this whole battle with ‘dark forces’ was initially conceived?

The Great Awakening

There is a ‘Great Awakening’ occurring amongst human beings on this planet, make no mistake. And Q often refers to this ‘Great Awakening’ amidst their info drops. But it is important to realize that the Q-Anon phenomenon is not the driver of this ‘Great Awakening,’ but merely one of a multitude of consequences of this awakening. The awakening of humanity at this particular time in history, one which leads to an evolutionary ‘jump,’ an ascension to a higher plane of existence, has been hinted at and prophesied by many of the world’s spiritual traditions going back thousands of years.

Meanwhile, those behind the Q-Anon phenomenon certainly don’t have as long of a history and can be considered as relative latecomers to the unfolding of the overall plan for humanity. This is not to discount the importance of what they are doing: working to reveal the dark dealings of a massive control structure and bringing perpetrators of horrific and treasonous crimes to justice, effectively clearing the way for humanity to move forward in the material world.

However, one must be clear that the ‘Great Awakening’ is not merely the realization that dark actions such as Satanic ritual sacrifice, pedophilia, human experimentation, and mind control have been effectively hidden from our view for centuries, or even that those perpetrating these crimes are going to face the full extent of the law. It is the awakening to the fact that, as individuals, we are truly sovereign beings, and our highest collective aspiration is to manage our civilization without a ruling class or master.

Human Sovereignty

Many patriots look at Q as their savior and cannot see beyond the moment when justice is served. But the larger question is: When the bloodlines and their minions that have been ruling us since the beginning of known history are suddenly deposed, what will we replace them with? How will the vacuum be filled? Will those military, political and intelligence operatives who see themselves as directly responsible for taking down the Deep State simply assume command? On the basis of what authority? Their own opinions about how the world should be run?

Yes, we have a Constitution, we have moral principles as well as checks and balances around rulership that, if followed, would probably lead to a comfortable life for most. But will we simply be replacing one ruler with another, albeit a bit more benevolent? And will we just stand by and accept a benevolent rulership that gradually devolves as most master/slave relationships do when power begins to corrupt by its very nature? Are we still going to be seeking leadership rather than looking inside ourselves for the golden light of sovereignty?

We have to see that we may be facing a similar challenge that Jesus did two thousand years ago, where he tried his best to explain to people their inherent self-guidance mechanism in following the will of their higher self (the ‘Father’). At that time, few could see Jesus as other than a savior they had to follow word-by-word rather than thinking for themselves and learning from their own experiences. This quandary is humorously illustrated in the following clip from Monty Python’s The Life of Brian.

Brian: Please, please, please listen. I’ve got one or two things to say.
Crowd:  Tell us! Tell us both of them!
Brian: Look, you’ve got it all wrong! You don’t need to follow me. You don’t need to follow anybody! You’ve got to think for yourselves!  You’re all individuals!
Crowd:  Yes! We’re all individuals!
Brian: You’re all different!
Crowd: Yes, we are all different!
Man in crowd: I’m not…
Crowd: Shhh!
Brian: You’ve all got to work it out for yourselves!
Crowd: Yes, we’ve all got to work it out for ourselves!
Brian: Exactly.
Crowd: Tell us more!
Brian: No, that’s the point! Don’t let anyone tell you what to do!

The Takeaway

Many patriots take the famous Q catchphrase ‘Where We Go One We Go All’ to mean that we are united as patriots in the fight against the Deep State criminals. In this way it is a rallying cry for an ‘us versus them’ mentality, where we see ourselves as the ‘good’ fighting against the ‘bad.’ Certainly, there is much in the Q information drops that suggests that this is exactly the way most of the people behind Q see things, and therein lies the limitations. This is why Q is not the answer–certainly not the ultimate answer–to our quest for salvation.

But one thing we can say about the Q drops is that they tend to be inquiries rather than statements of fact, which encourages active participation and fosters mastery over the situation with the calm assurance that everything is under control and in the big picture we will succeed. The design behind Q’s litany of questions may very well be suggesting that in order to go forward, we must all find answers for ourselves.

Another way we can interpret ‘Where We Go One We Go All’ is in the context of all of humanity, where the ultimate plan is for the patriotic and the treasonous, the good and the bad, the oppressed and the oppressors, to all come together as one within the human collective. This will only be possible if we are able to reach for humility and forgiveness, and recognize that as human individuals we are all equally connected to the human darkness that has dominated this planet for so long.

Each one of us must go through our own healing and become self-responsible sovereigns in our own lives. We have to grow past the need to be told what to do and develop a connectedness and an identification with the entirety of the human race. It is when our eyes truly open up and we see ourselves as one and naturally mature into unconditional service to the whole that the next step in the collective evolution of humanity will be realized.

New Moon In Aquarius: Proceeding With New Ideas

Published

on

We are having a New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th in the West which will be February 5th in the Eastern part of the world. This is initiating a 29.5-day Lunar cycle and a new wave of energy for the coming month. This cycle will peak at the Full Moon in Virgo on February 19th.

This New Moon follows a Lunar and Solar Eclipse which was part of the previous lunar cycle. It’s important to keep in mind that the energy of the eclipses we had in January will continue to play out over the coming months. You can read more about them here.

Aquarius season began on January 20th, one day prior to the last Lunar Eclipse. However, this New Moon accentuates its energies even more so. It is also occurring right in the middle of this sign, which is also the middle of winter. Traditionally, pagans celebrated this period as ‘Imbolc.’

Aquarius is associated with idealism and innovation, as it tries to figure out how to do things in a better way and takes the future into consideration. Although it can be idealistic, it applies itself intellectually and rationally, yet can also be overly theoretical. Being a fixed sign, traditionally ruled by Saturn, it can also be stubborn and unyielding when it comes to the ideas and perspectives that it has already decided on.

Aquarius is also about friends, social networks, the group, the team, and the collective. However, it can also be detached socially and likes to spread itself out with regards to relationships. In more modern approaches to astrology, the planet Uranus has been assigned as a ruler of Aquarius. Uranus reflects the inventive, revolutionary, unconventional, and even rebellious potentials of Aquarius. I personally view Saturn as its primary ruler and observe Uranus as a sub-ruler or representative of certain qualities of Aquarius.

Over the last year and a half, we have had Eclipses as well as Mars Retrograde occurring in Aquarius. This has been a period of shifting and changes in regards to how we incorporate Aquarian themes in our lives, with the previous Lunar Eclipse in Leo being the final instalment of this process. Therefore it is possible that this Lunar cycle (and the previous weeks) could trigger themes that have already been playing out since 2017.

New Moon Conjunct Mercury and Sextile Jupiter, Mercury in aspect with Mars conjunct Uranus

This New Moon is aligned with Mercury in the same sign, six days after it was in its ‘superior conjunction’ with the Sun. This is a period in which we can proceed forward with greater clarity in regards to things that have been seeded in the previous months. We can better implement our ideas in a way that is more aligned with our true wants. This combined with Mercury in aspect with Mars, can signify a period of increased Mercurial action such as thinking, planning, communicating and writing.

Mercury is also moving towards a sextile with Uranus which is strongest on February 9th. This can stimulate the inventiveness of Aquarius, and can be a time of insight, new ideas, or thinking in a unique or unconventional way. Mars is aligned with Uranus which will be strongest from February 12th-13th yet will be building up in the days leading up to it. This can reflect taking action in a way that is different, liberating, rebellious, but it can also be impulsive and erratic. It is possible that some changes could come up that could alter how we apply ourselves.

Jupiter in Sagittarius is also connected to this New Moon and Mercury configuration. This can be good for learning, teaching, exploring, and considering the big picture. Philosophical thinking could also be a theme. This can also be good for plans or actions connected to media, marketing, or even travels. This combined with the Mercury-Mars aspect can also manifest as short trips and moving around a lot.

Saturn Sextile Neptune, Chiron in Final Stretch of Pisces

Saturn, the traditional ruler of Aquarius, is in a sextile with Neptune in Pisces which peaked in the previous week and will still play a role over the coming weeks and in different periods throughout the year. This is a great influence for taking a structured, disciplined or committed approach when it comes to ideals, dreams, inspirations, creativity, spirituality, or even anything that involves selflessness, compassion, or healing.

Chiron is finishing up its process in Pisces before returning to Aries on February 18th. It began its journey in Pisces in 2010 and the last time it was there before that was from 1960-1969. Known as the ‘wounded healer’, Chiron triggers both wounds and the potential healing of those wounds. It also serves as a bridge and helps to facilitate holistic awareness and approaches towards healing and empowerment.

Chiron has been influencing Piscean themes which is about spirituality, oneness, compassion, psychic potential, creativity, and inspiration. This energy could also trigger wounds, blockages, or negative traits of Pisces to help facilitate healing, awareness, or transformation. This can include escapism, intoxication, delusion, and deception. Pisces can also easily drift from light to dark, either consciously or by lacking discernment. .

Since 2010 we have seen a major spiritual shift in the collective, with many people become more spiritually aware through personal experiences as opposed to the influence of organized religion.  Last time it was in Pisces it had a similar effect. However, this was before Chiron was discovered and seeded into the collective consciousness and therefore its influence in Pisces in the 60’s was not as strong as it is during its recent passage.

During this final stretch of Chiron in Pisces over the next few weeks, we could experience some sort of concluding factor of this process. This combined with Saturn sextile Neptune (mentioned above), can indicate a period of making constructive and beneficial progress around these themes.

Making Intentions and Things To Consider

What has been coming up for you over the last month and how should you take a different approach based on this? Did you have any insights, conversations, realizations, or increased clarity that came up around January 29th-30th? In what new ways can you approach your friendships or social networks? How can you assert yourself in new ways?

What realistic steps do you need to take to help make your dreams, visions, and ideals a reality? What areas of your life are calling for some sort of expansion? What aspect of your life wants to be healed? What do you need to overcome in order to help you become a more whole and spiritually embodied version of yourself?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time, however, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. It will be occurring at 9:04pm Universal Time, you can click here to see what that is in your time zone.
