What I Learned From Dolores Cannon’s Work & How It Changed My Life

Published

on

Dolores Cannon is a hypnotherapist, UFO investigator, and paranormal researcher who has been sharing information and insights into the findings of her extensive work for the past 40 years. She is a master hypnotherapist who takes her clients to the somnambulistic level where, as she states, most hypnotherapists don’t dare to go. She has brought to light a whole host of ancient knowledge which has either been lost to or hidden from the human population for various reasons.

This article has been almost a year in the making, as I first discovered Dolores around March 2014. Jeff Roberts, a very talented CE writer, wrote an article about her which you can view here. I had heard about Dolores in 2011 but wasn’t able to find the time to look into her work, but as always in life, we tend to come upon things just when we need them.

I found Jeff’s article, and after reading it I watched as many YouTube videos of Dolores’ lectures as I could find. I avidly took notes while watching, because many of her talks were answering questions I already had regarding the planetary shift that is happening right now, among other things. I knew I had to get some of her books, and I did!

I read many of the comments posted on Jeff’s article and immediately noticed a trend; either they knew of Dolores and were happy to see an article written about her, they dismissed her as crazy, or they were simply unwilling to believe. It seemed like the ones who dismissed her work had never even taken the time to look into any of it. She’s been doing this for 40 years so there is plenty of material to look into – it can be a bit overwhelming, for sure –  but I think it’s really important when researching this kind of work to be open-minded.

When I first began writing this article I was going to call it, “Why this is the most important time in the history of the Universe,” to continue the discussion that Jeff started and to perhaps help clarify and share further information on her work for those who didn’t have the time to do the research or the money to buy her books. However, while in the midst of writing this article in October of last year, Dolores passed away, and my writing was put on hold. I felt like I had lost a great mentor and the world had lost a valuable conduit. I know death is not the end though; Dolores is guiding us still and her work carries on. I just hope that by sharing what I have learned and the questions that were answered for me, it might answer some of your own questions in turn and inspire you to buy some of her books research further into her fascinating work.

The Awakening/Planetary Shift

I awakened in January 2011. I’m not going to go into detail about what that was like though. It’s a pretty cool (but long) story awakening10and I’m sure many reading this article are already familiar with the process. After I awakened I asked the question, “Now what?”. I didn’t know what my next steps were going to be. I believed there was a planetary shift happening but I didn’t know the reason behind it, what it meant for our species and others in the galaxy, or what the end result of it would be. That conclusion is what really interested me. Today I find that many of the people I speak with from all around the world are in a similar state of confusion that I was in 4 years ago.

“It is not so much to be with those in a higher vibration because they can fend for themselves. And it is not for those who are in deep negativity that we must be next to either. It is for those who are in the midst of confusion, but are perhaps ready to make a jump, that we can be most helpful to.” The SC (Sub-Conscious that speaks through Dolores’ clients) – The Three Waves of Volunteers and The New Earth

I hope this information will bring some clarity to those who desperately need it and are ready for it. Here’s what I have learned:

When The Awakening Started

imagesCAGGYRO0The Awakening or the shift started more or less in the 1960s. As explained through Dolores’s work, souls that had never been to Earth before began incarnating on the planet (Jeff also explains this in his article). Their frequencies were not like ours. They were higher, and their presence began to raise the vibrations of the people and the planet. There were three waves of these pure souls, and if you look back at the social climate of that time, you can see their influence. The 60s were a time of great change and social upheaval, and so the idea of the Awakening at this time really resonated with me; it just made sense. Earth was created to be a school for all beings wishing to achieve accelerated soul growth. We incarnate on the planet to learn lessons, to have experiences, to grow and to play. We also have been trying to get out of the karmic cycle, but that is a separate and lengthy topic that you can read more about in her books. We also plan our lives, but again, that is too much of a digression – I did write an article about it though which you can view here. The time we are experiencing now is what would be called graduation. We are graduating to the next step in our soul evolution; the next stage of consciousness.

For many, the evolution started with the Quickening. Even people who have no clue about the awakening are saying that they feel like time is going by extremely quickly. The Quickening is being caused by the vibrations moving at a faster rate. You can either go with the vibrations and match it, making yours faster (the Quickening) as well, or you can get stuck. Many people on Earth are refusing to make their vibrations faster, causing them to become an opposing force. The people who have raised their vibrations can feel this opposing force, and in raising their vibration, they allow their very DNA to be changed. We are graduating, and graduation is a choice. It’s a pretty exciting time to be living in!

Why The Awakening Started

When the first atomic bomb was set off, a call was put out to the universe that the Earth was in trouble. This call was answered by many souls who volunteered to come to Earth, many of whom had never been here before. Some were asked, with the option to say no, but they all came (however hesitantly). Earth is one of the hardest planets to incarnate onto, one of the hardest schools so to speak. So after the first atomic bomb detonation, these volunteers began being born with one goal, and that one goal was to shift the energy and the consciousness of this planet and its people, because we were headed down the wrong path as a species and beginning to harm the planet irreparably. The pure souls have been successful I feel and Earth is now shifting into her next incarnation and taking her best students with her. If you’ve done research into ancient cultures from around the world, you might have found that this evolution has happened before with different groups of people. Dolores does touch on this in some of the books I’ve read., along with Spirit Science and many others.

(When speaking about a whole group or civilization that shifted from 3rd dimensional reality to another dimension.)

“By coming and taking on the physical and being forerunners. It’s very important to create a mold, to create a track. People can entrain to what has happened. The first ones, it’s more difficult, then it becomes easier. You have a term for that: the hundredth monkey. You make it easier for others if you’ve made the path. And time is all one. So it’s always been known there would be a time for the need to ascension of sorts, of shift, of transformation, of transcendence.” The SC – The Three Waves of Volunteers and The New Earth

How To know If You Are In The Process Of AwakeningimagesW0239HNH

To view a detailed article with Awakening Symptoms click here.

Physical Changes Of The Body And Why Your DNA Will Be changing

Our DNA is changing to hold new energy and the new frequency. The infusion of higher vibrations on to the planet is causing dormant DNA to be activated. As our DNA is activated, our bodies begin to change.

Dolores: “Is this changing of DNA going to have an affect on psychic abilities?” 

SC: “Yes. People will become more much more telepathic. No need for words, communicating through the heart and the thought blocks. No way to lie or cheat. You won’t need to.”

By raising our vibrations our bodies begin to change, and we will begin to reject certain things and lifestyles that once seemed normal. The awakening symptoms article goes into great detail about these changes but one thing I can’t stress enough to make the transition easier is changing your diet. Many people have a hard time with this, but if you are truly dedicated to shifting into the next stage of your evolution then it’s something you must consider.

“Throughout my work, my subjects are being told that they must change their diet in order to make the adjustment into the new world. Our bodies must become lighter, and this means the elimination of heavy foods. During the sessions, my clients are repeatedly warned to stop eating meat (beef and pork especially), mainly because of the additives and chemicals that are being fed into the animals.” – Dolores Cannon, The Three Waves of Volunteers and The New Earth

“Dolores: “Will we still consume food?”

SC: “Well, you’re going to stop killing animals to eat them because eating the vibrations of a creature will now make you very, very sick. You will eat more watery things, and when you plant your food, you’re going to plant not with quantity but a quality of love and it will bring in the higher vibrations when you plant your trees and the fruits are going to be higher vibrational, so you don’t need to eat as much anymore.”

For further study of how to change your diet for the better, please watch the Documentary ‘Origins’. I’ll leave a link below to access the films website. One thing the documentary shares is the importance of eating raw foods. I have implemented this into my life and I feel amazing. I have also been a vegetarian since I awakened in January 2011.

Those Being Left Behind

From what I understand of the people who will not go is that whether they are conscious of it or not, it is their choice to go to 5th Dimensional Reality. The choice is made by your vibration and through that, your reality is set. One thing I thought was so cute about Dolores is that as she is discovering that people will be left behind and the SC is telling her this, she is just shocked and thinks it’s totally un-fair which I felt the same too when I first started reading about it until I understood that it’s not really them being left behind, but actually they are choosing not go.

SC: “… time flew for the Gaia to graduate and take her best students with her and leave behind the destruction and corruption and negativity and darkness. It’s like she’s splitting off, morphing into two.”

 Dolores: “The ones who are left behind…their DNA has not been changed?imagesCAT655BL

SC: “No, they won’t allow it.”

Dolores: “So it’s a personal choice then?”

SC: “Yes”

“Those who have not become enlightened will have to return to another, denser planet that is still involved with negativity, to work out their remaining karma.” – Dolores Cannon, The Three Waves of Volunteers and The New Earth 

Extraterrestrial Influence

imagesD509NA6AET influence is far greater than I think anyone could ever imagine. After I read the book, my mind was “pretzeled,” as Dolores calls it. I just did not know how to accept the information being presented to me. The first thing I thought is, “Can all that actually be possible and if it is, Holy $@#%!” The book talks about Earth’s origins: who created the Earth, why it was created, and how aliens have been a part of everything since creation. Visions I had were validated through the SC and Dolores. I never told anyone about the visions I had because it was just way too out of this world to even speak about, yet here they were, the things that I had seen, written in this book. Aside from the origins, I also learned about ET influence (much more than I could even imagine) and about the difference between good aliens (ones that help), neutral aliens, and not so good aliens (ones that don’t help).

SC: “There are beings that we consider not very spiritually evolved. That does not mean they are negative. We have no negativity within the Universe. There is no positive and no negative. There is only the beauty of the One. What we have are beings who have not evolved spiritually as we would wish, but we would not call them negative. I wanted to bring out, for example, the ET beings that are working with your government. Those beings are here for their own purposes to get metals from the Earth and different chemicals, elements and things that they can use. Sometimes they take out more of this than they tell the government. We don’t approve of this, but we have allowed them to come because the vibration of the planet is lower and they can come into this vibration and communicate with governments. This does not mean they are negative. They are growing spiritually. And we allow them to come in. They are not harming the planet because they have learned that they must give. And they are giving technology to the government. So it’s a give and take. We disagree, but they are not negative. Some beings here think on terms of good or evil, and that is really not the way to look at it. It should be looked at in terms of spiritual advancement. Some of these beings just aren’t as spiritually advanced.” – The Three Waves of Volunteers and The New Earth

The last sentence is what really got me to look at it in a different way. Over the years I have read about the undergrounddolores3 bases and the atrocities that are going on at the hands of alien beings (supposedly) and I was sickened. After reading the book, I began to view the aliens in exactly the same way that I view humans who do “negative” things;  I used to be sickened by what humans did at one point too. A couple of years ago I found out that humans play roles, and that the “negative” roles (people who do really bad things like hurt, oppress, violate, etc.) are nothing more than that – roles – for inside there is still a perfect, beautiful, good natured soul wishing to experience soul growth, create it for others, or clear up karma. I then started to view aliens the same way. If these beings are truly doing horrible things to humans, while I don’t condone their actions, I believe that like all things in life, we create our own circumstances and choose to participate in them, whether consciously or otherwise. I know many people will have a hard time accepting that but I believe it’s true. Like all things created, we created it for many reasons.

How I Am applying What I learned To My Life

The main thing I got from all of her work is that we’re moving from our 3 dimensional reality to the 5th. This process is not just life changing and beautiful but also destructive and extremely hard. I mean really, really hard. But I’ve learned that it’s my choice to raise my vibration and I can do so by making great changes in my life, such as forgiving others and myself, being of service and generous to those who need me, and being conscious of my actions and words. I can also be aware of what I put into my body and be mindful of who I am and why I am here – to graduate to my next level of consciousness. Even if by chance none of what Dolores talks about is true and it’s all complete fantasy, it doesn’t matter, for I will have created for myself the best life any person could ask for. Applying what I’ve learned to my life has made me a better person and I feel like if I died tomorrow, I would be filled with gratitude, not regrets. How could I ask for more than that? Also, I don’t know about you, but I’ve been pretty tired of this 3rd dimensional reality. There are so many horrible things happening around the planet, and everything we come into contact with is poisonous. In all honesty, I find it completely overwhelming most of the time. Plus our beautiful planet is being destroyed. People have asked me what will happen to the greedy and corrupt people in positions of power, or people who are just generally negative, and as I understand it, they will be left with what they’ve created. If they are in a low vibration, they will stay in 3rd dimension reality along with our dying eco-system, horrors like Fukushima, and all the other messes they have created. I think those that are playing the “negative” roles knew they weren’t going to shift because they hadn’t cleared up enough karmas to go on, so they volunteered to play those roles to help us. I don’t hate those that oppress us, human or non-human. I feel grateful to them.

Dolores’ books changed my life. I’ve read a couple of them and I plan to read more. I’m not saying that everything she says is true and you must believe it all. It’s up for you to decide what you wish to believe and what you feel resonates with you the most. I think her work offers valuable information and another possibility for truth. It has not only answered some of the questions I had that I couldn’t for the life of me find the answers to, but has also validated visions I had and things my spirit guides said. More importantly,  (and this is what really did it for me) it was all synchronistically done is such a crazy way that I can’t deny it. I hope that those who are searching for answers and some clarity in the midst of all this confusion (because there is tons) will find that and I believe Dolores Cannons’ work is a great start.

Below are some topics that I couldn’t fit into the article that might further peak your interest to get some of her books:

The Healers, Non-Interference Areas, Upgrades, The Council of Nine, Early Wake Up Call for Some, Physical ET Visitations, The Grid, The Chaos, Diseases, The “Safety Net” Illusion, Not Looking Back, The Illusion of Age, Spiritual Coasting, The Many Styles of Awakening, Simultaneous Lives, Reincarnation Pattern Changing, and so much more!

I’d like to end this with my favourite quote from her.imagesLYGD86F7

“The choice of transformation is Ours – and all possible worlds are waiting to be explored.”

Thank you Dolores and to all those close to her that help carry on her work. She is a beautiful soul and I’m glad I found her work. It truly did change my life.

Full Moon In Aries: Addressing Wounds & Limitations

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Aries on September 24th/25th, depending on where you’re located in the world. This marks the peak of the Lunar Cycle that began on September 9th with a New Moon in Virgo. The energies of a Full Moon gradually build up earlier in the Moon cycle and become more noticeable on the day of and days surrounding it. It is also a part of the backdrop of the other astrological energies over the following 2 weeks.

The Sun entered Libra a few days prior which is always at the Equinox as per the Tropical Zodiac. The Equinoxes and Solstices are powerful points of transition which are the beginning of the next quarter/season of the astronomical year. Considering that the Full Moon is so close to this Equinox, it amplifies the transitional energy of this period.

At every Full Moon we experience a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case it is the Sun in Libra opposing the Moon in Aries. As mentioned, Libra season just began and will last until October 23rd. Ruled by Venus, it is about relating/relationships, aesthetics/beauty, creativity, balance, diplomacy, equality, cooperation, and consideration. It can also be indecisive, superficial, vain, lack action, and can be overly co-dependant in many ways yet emotionally detached at the same time. As an Air sign, it is socially and intellectually oriented.

Aries, ruled by Mars, is about self-initiation, action, assertiveness, boldness, independence, self-interests, and taking the lead. It is also a ‘quick’ energy. Negatively, it can be hot-tempered, aggressive, restless, impatient, and lack consideration. As a Fire sign, it is energetic and instinctual. During this time we should see the energies of both of these opposing signs playing out either through us and/or around us.

Full Moon Conjunct Chiron, Square Saturn, and Opposing Mercury With The Sun

This Full Moon is really close to Chiron (also in Aries) while moving towards a square with Saturn in Capricorn and an opposition to Mercury (also in Libra). This period may highlight anything connected to our wounds, blockages, negative patterns, traumas, and/or it may also bring up our gifts in relation to those.

Chiron has a holistically healing quality, and perhaps this period can reflect taking action towards healing. It is also a ‘bridge’ energy, especially between the physical and the spiritual, but can also bridge other things as well. Chiron is also currently retrograde and is changing signs (to Pisces) less than 24 hours after this Full Moon. This reinforces how Chiron themes can be coming up strongly at this time, and perhaps it could be connected to our wounds and issues that have come up sometime in the last 7-8 years.

Saturn in a T-square with this Full Moon can bring up themes around limitations, challenges, responsibility, or discipline. These can be in connection with the Libra-Aries opposition as well as Chiron themes mentioned above. In some cases, we may need to get real and put effort towards fixing our blockages. Mercury in the equation could have to do with issues around the way we think or communicate.

The Sun is Aligned with The Super Galactic Center

The Sun is aligned with the ‘Super Galactic Center’ which is what our galaxy rotates around along with other galaxies. The SGC, along with the GC (our galaxy’s center) are points in the sky that have to do with higher consciousness, spiritual evolution, and tapping into new ideas and concepts that help to push humanity forward.

This SGC amplifies some of the Libras qualities around relationship and creativity, but has deeper meaning around them. It can also be connected to soul retrieval and healing, similarly to Chiron. These themes may also be connected to some of the other stuff mentioned throughout this article.

Aries Ruler Mars In Aspect With Full Moon While At The South Node, Returning From Being ‘Out Of Bounds’

The ruler of this Full Moon, Mars, is aligned with the South Node and a trine/sextile with the Sun and Moon. It is still in its post-retrograde period for the next two weeks as it begins to pick up speed. On the day of this Full Moon, Mars also returns from being ‘Out of Bounds’ which isn’t a common occurrence. This is when a planet orbits outside of a space of where it normally is from our Earth based perspective, outside of the ‘Ecliptic and Celestial Equator’. This began on July 7th during its retrograde.

When a planet is ‘out of bounds’, it is generally a time when a planet explores new territory beyond the normal constructs of how it usually expresses itself. It can be in unusual, unique, independent, unconventional, innovative, and even creative ways. Mars has to do with how we use our willpower, our actions/assertiveness, our motivations, our desires, sexuality, and how we deal with aggression and anger. With the ‘out of bounds’ ending now, it can be a time of integrating more of what we learned or experienced over the last 2.5 months.

This combined with the Mars retrograde indicates a re-orientation of how we apply Mars. Being near the South Node, it also brings themes in relation to the past (perhaps karmic) and could also be connected to Aquarian areas of friendships, ideals, and collective efforts. Perhaps a need to release something in terms of how we apply our Mars energy and/or in relation to Aquarian areas. The South Node connection also reinforces some of the Chiron and Super Galactic Center themes mentioned above.

Libra Ruler, Venus, Going Retrograde Soon

Venus is currently slowing down and will go retrograde on October 5th while in Scorpio. Since early September, we have been in a period in which shifts and new developments around Venus areas of love, relationships, sex, values, beauty, creativity, and even financially can start to play out. Or certain things that have been going since then may lead to changes and adjustments to these areas which will occur during and after the retrograde from October to December.

Prior to and during the retrograde, Venus interacts with Mars in a square. This could be about our recent Mars lessons and re-orientations having an effect on Venus related areas which will undergo its own recalibration process of its own.

Things To Consider During This Period

What are your self-interests at this time and how can you balance this with the consideration of others? What areas of your life require healing and what has been coming up to show you this? How can you apply better effort and discipline towards dealing with your blockages, limitations, and wounds? How can you take on more of a holistic approach? What aspects or relationships of your past do you need to address? What behaviors do you need to release from? What did you realize or explore in the last 2.5 months and how can you incorporate this to achieve greater harmony and fulfillment in your life.

These are just some examples of what may be coming up for you, however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out as well.  If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime over the two weeks following, when it is waning. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on September 25th at 2:52am Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Your Life Is Not Limited To One Path

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In life, we often get stuck telling ourselves stories about what the 'best' path in life to take is. It's often based on chasing others' or societies dreams and aspirations, without looking at our own.

  • Reflect On:

    Do we tell ourselves what the 'right choice' or 'wrong choice' is on our own path? What is it based on? Where does our programming come from? Can we not let go of limiting programming? Is our programming our TRUE path?

It is no secret that life can sometimes feel like a limited paved road laid out before us that we feel the need to stick to. Look at how we are brought up. Most of the time we come into the world and begin gaining our perceptions from those closest to us –our parents. As time goes on we find ourselves in school. Throughout that time we also begin watching what others do around us, what we see on TV and in movies.

What is happening is we are observing and creating an idea of how life should be; the best way to play the game. But what is ‘best?’

How many times have we heard “That’s not the best decision” or “That’s not the best decision for the whole family.” When you look at either statement you realize that “best” is subjective. What the “best” is to one person may not be the “best” to another. Even further, both of the perceptions of “best” are created from whatever belief systems each have created in their own lives. This is the key factor to realize.

We Get Trapped in Belief Systems

In either case, both scenarios have one thing in common, a belief system of what the “best” choice or decision is. When we create a belief system like this, we limit how we view things. We no longer feel what is “best,” but instead we analyze and define “best” based on a story; often a story from the past, based on entirely different times than the present moment.

Let’s take the example of a child coming out of high school today.  9 times out of 10, that child will be told, and may even believe, that the “best” decision they can make for their life is to continue their education at university or college. It does not matter that they do not know what they want to study, or that the education system will potentially cost them $100,000+, many will state that is best -and even have pride about it.

Next, they would be told to get a job so they can buy a house, as owning and buying a house is a smart decision. Should this child begin their life based on these belief systems, more often than not they will take this idea of what is “BEST” throughout the rest of their life. They will judge their decisions by this, express emotions based on this, develop self-esteem based on this and so forth. From then on, every decision they make will be based on this belief system handed down and taught to them.

advertisement - learn more

Even getting specific, what to study in school, what type of job to get, what type of car to buy, how to spend and save money, what type of house to buy and so on. What is really happening with all of this? We are defining the ideal life or what’s “best” and then we limit our life to a small scope of how things should be.

The Deep Truth

Here is the absolute truth, ready? None of it has any real truth to it. It’s just all a belief system. Perception, ideas! But we often live by this and it becomes so real in our minds that we become stuck thinking this is the way to do it. Then when depression and anxiety follow, as we may believe we are stuck, we forget to look back on the belief system that is often caging us and our reality into a small tight space we often don’t deeply resonate with.

Look at our world. We often all chase the same thing, the same stuff because that is what we have been sold as the ideal life. Each area of the world has its own version of this. Who’s life are you really living? Whose dreams are you chasing and carrying out? We take on these beliefs and we begin to sacrifice ourselves, our health, and our soul desires so we can carry out someone else’s idea of “best” that we grabbed onto.

Back to the child from the example above. Now they have grown into a young man or woman and are in a job they don’t truly like. But it pays the bills and lives up to the idea of “best” that has been given to them. Most of the time, people around them will all reinforce that their decisions are the “best” because they have all been sold on the same belief system. “You have to make sacrifices, you have to work really hard to have a good life!” is what we are told. But who says what is “good?” Even when that grown up child is expressing their sadness or frustration for the reality they are in, we continue to reinforce it to protect the idea of ‘the best.’

We take this entirely expansive creative individual playing in an expansive playground called Earth and we confine them to this tiny little narrow path of what the “best” is. Instead of spending their life being able to make any choice they choose, they stay limited to what they have been sold as the “best” even if they don’t truly love it.

Even Deeper

Then you have the even deeper part, we then look upon and judge others when they make “the wrong decisions.” Look at how we view those who change their minds about what they want to play with all the time. What do we say about those people? “They need to make up their mind and get their life on track.” What track? There is a track? Says who? “They didn’t make a smart decision with their money or their house so they are going to pay for it later.” Who says some decisions are better than others? Is it not an experience either way?

You are the creator of your life and reality. You can choose to play and create whatever type of life you choose. And guess what? If you make a decision and start creating a particular life then you realize you want to create something new, you are free to do this!

No matter what story we tell ourselves like: “it’s too late, I can’t change this now, it’s too costly” etc. know that these are all egoic illusions. You are never limited to whatever life you have created even if you have been doing it for 30 years. Remember to ask yourself: the life you are chasing, the goals you have set, who’s goals are they really? Where did you first hear of them? Are they from your heart? Or are they what you have been sold?

Look inside yourself at what YOU TRULY want and how you wish to express yourself and create. Start there, and create from that space. You will see very quickly that you can create anything you choose.

Remember, there is no right or wrong path here. It’s about looking back on what we choose, where we are at and saying “Is this where I want to be? Am I feeling peace? Expressing my deepest self? Am I inspired about where I am at?” and if you aren’t, you create a new path and see how that feels. Follow how you FEEL, not what you seek as right or wrong.

The Hero’s Adventure: What Movies Can Teach Us About Facing Our Shadow

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Hero's Journey is a multi-staged adventure whereby the 'hero' grows to become a new version of themselves, one that is evolved and at a 'higher level' per se.

  • Reflect On:

    Movies can be viewed in many ways. Some see it as programming others as inspiration. How can we use what we see in movies in our own lives? To grow and evolve as people? To recognize our true callings vs those of Hollywood?

The hero’s adventure is a term popularised by Joseph Campbell based upon his 1949 work “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”. The late Campbell was an American Professor of Literature and a philosopher who described the adventure one must embark upon to fully realise who he/she is.

A simple explanation from Campbell:

“A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.”

Campbell uses the word monomyth to describe this adventure which was taken from James Joyce’s book Finnegans Wake.

According to Campbell the monomyth contains 3 stages, with 17 subsections. Not all journeys contain all sections and no two adventures are the same, yet the hero’s adventure follows a surprisingly similar pattern. The 3 stages are 1. A call to seek out some kind of adventure. 2. A trial or initiatory period where the hero must face an obstacle or series of obstacles. 3. The return back home with that which you were seeking to find. This often repeats in a number of ways, with various steps being repeated, but this is the idea.

The 17 Steps Of The Heroes Adventure:

The Call:

  1. The call to adventure
  2. Refusal of the call
  3. Supernatural aid
  4. Crossing the threshold
  5. Belly of the whale

The Initiation:

  1. The road of trials
  2. The meeting with the goddess
  3. Woman as temptress
  4. Atonement with the father
  5. Apotheosis
  6. The ultimate boon

The Return:

  1. Refusal of the return
  2. The magic flight
  3. Rescue from without
  4. The crossing of the return threshold
  5. Master of two worlds
  6. Freedom to live

When you look to Hollywood movies and best selling fiction books they all follow the same pattern. Star Wars writer, George Lucas, was a friend of Joseph Campbell and famously said that without Campbell there would have been no Star Wars.

Star Wars

If you take Star Wars, it is the perfect example of the Hero’s Journey:

The Call: Luke Skywalker is living a mundane existence, and then while cleaning R2D2 he is shown a holographic recording seeking help from Princess Leia.

The Initiation: Obi-Wan becomes a mentor to Luke, and teaches him to “use the force”. Along the way he meets Han Solo, Chewbacca and other unsuspecting helpers until he completes his apprentice (which he does not know is taking place). Finally after much fighting, Luke is able to rescue Princess Leia and destroy the death star.

The Return: Then he returns home a new man where Leia awards Luke with medals for his heroism.

The Matrix

The Matrix is another example.

The Call: Thomas Anderson is fed up with life at a dead end job and knows there is more to his existence. He has a dream in which his computer types “follow the white rabbit” when someone comes to buy illegal computer programmes from him they ask him to join them on a night out. He declines, but when one of the group turns, she has a tattoo of a white rabbit, so he decides to follow.

The Initiation: Thomas Anderson becomes his computer alias Neo. He meets Trinity, and later Morpheus and is offered to be shown the truth in the form of the red pill (truth) or blue pill (fantasy). He opts for the truth pill and is initiated into a mysterious world where reality as he knew it is actually a computer programme. He gets to download multiple skills, thinks he is The One, but then realises he is not The One. Morpheus gets taken by the agents and he decides to save him.

The Return: Upon trying to save Morpheus he realises he is The One, saves him and defeats the agents. This is him returning with the realisation he is The One, although the return and initiation cross over a little.

This is the same structure you see in Harry Potter, The Wizard Of Oz, Alice In Wonderland, The Alchemist and just about every story based movie there is.

But how is this helpful?

This is the same story we can use as a metaphorical representation of who and where we are in our lives.

If you think life is meaningless and mundane, this means you should be on the lookout for synchronicities and clues of how to break free.

If you have just had a strong urge to go and do something very far removed from your comfort zone that has the potential to change your circumstances, then you probably should.

If you are stuck in a painful situation that seems to have no end, this means you are in an initiation. Being in an initiation does not guarantee you will pass “the test” but at some point you will be given an opportunity to break a cycle or take an opportunity.

If you have just been through an ordeal and conquered your inner (and sometimes outer) demons, bask in the glory, but remember there was 9 Star Wars movies, 4 Matrix movies and 8 Harry Potter books. Your Heroes Adventure may have many chapters, so strap in and try to enjoy the journey.

Much love, Luke.
