6 Lessons We Can Learn From Money: What’s Your Money Lesson?

Published

on

At the bottom of all the personal drama that makes up a shift, you always realize that there was a single lesson it was teaching you all along. It’s almost like the shift cycles down until you can understand it in a single statement, and in that moment you realize that you were seeing the same message over and over again, all along.

That final message, even though it presents in different ways because of the details of our personal story, usually carries one of a number of common themes. So are you learning one of the following money lessons right now?

How Do I Know It’s My Lesson?

Like every lesson, you’ll know it’s yours because you feel it inside it you.

In the same way that awarenesses and conscious realization create relief inside your system as you reconcile the thoughts and come to understanding, being faced with a truth you’re denying makes you feel uncomfortable.

So if it isn’t your stuff it will cause no emotional response in you. If it is your stuff however, it can cause a range of emotions from sadness to discomfort and laughter. The point is that if you have any emotional response then you’re likely working with that lesson.

Another way you’re going to know that it’s your stuff is that you’ve thought about it before – this has crossed your mind at some point.

We’re quick to deny the aspects of ourselves that we don’t want to see, and then when most realizations break through, those moments of denial are often clearly visible to us.

Jumping straight to the core lesson and accepting the information can help you avoid a whole bunch of development growth and pain. The point of the exercise, after all, is to align you to the new energy: once that has happened, the need for the smaller lessons, or drama, falls away – alongside the challenges and blocks.

Once you’ve identified a lesson as yours, start listing, from your own experience, examples of how you’ve played this aspect out in your life. As you run through each example, it will help you accept the realization energetically. In some cases you’ll feel the release as a physical relaxation in your body, like tension just falling away.

Something else to note is that lessons are often presented as mirrors, so while the challenges may be presenting as money issues, the realizations may be more applicable to other areas of your life, e.g. “My inability to make money stems from my self worth issues around my father.”

The point is that your lessons happen across all areas of your life in a shift, not just the area you’re focused on. Don’t limit yourself to one area of focus, thinking that processes like this work in isolation. Chances are that something as big as money will tie into everything that has happened to you, from your birth circumstances to abuse you may have suffered at the hands of schoolyard bullies.

What’s Your Money Lesson?

Greed & Entitlement

Are you greedy or entitled when it comes to money, or in another area of your life?

Do you give freely of yourself – your time, energy and money? Or do you hoard, keeping things back for yourself even when you don’t use them?

Are things never enough for you? Does it always seem like you’re being treated unfairly, getting less than you deserve? Do you want to charge a lot but get everything for free? Do you expect to get back more than you give? Are you always complaining about what you don’t have and never giving thanks for what you do have?

Do you feel greedy asking to have your needs met? Do you feel that it is not spiritual to want or need money to meet your expenses?

Non-Attachment

Have you tied your whole self worth up in money and material possessions?

Can you classify a year of work as a success, if those around you are labeling you a financial failure? If you lost everything tomorrow, could you pick up and start again?

Stop and think about losing your house – what are the feelings? Are you feeling shame, fear, anxiety or vulnerability? Does the thought of not meeting your monthly payments scare you and make you feel insecure?

Do you value your possessions more than the people around you? Are you focused on money to the exclusion of everything else? Has money become your God?

Humility

Do you become arrogant and superior towards others when you have money?

Being broke makes you eat humble pie very quickly, and we often learn incredible lessons of humility and what really matters in life through the experience. Do you forget these lessons when money comes to you?

Does your personality change when things start to go well? Do you treat people differently? Do you forget to give thanks and work on your stuff, coming from a place of entitlement and superiority?

Asking For Help

It’s a sad snapshot of this world that most of the people you speak to feel lonely and alone and that there’s no one that they can turn to for help.

When you carry a belief like ‘I can’t ask anyone for help’ or ‘There’s no one I can turn to for help,’ the Universe tends to spring into action and bring you lessons designed to prove that wrong.

So the logical thing to do would be to put you in a situation where you need help, because that way you’ll reach out for help and discover that it is there. Well at least that’s what the Universe thinks. For us however, we get thrown into the midst of a personal crisis from which there seems to be no end.

If you’ve been thinking about someone and reaching out to make amends or ask for help, then your fastest way out of this lesson is to reach out, sooner rather than later. If contact is a requirement of the lesson then it won’t shift until you make an effort and reach.

Learning To Use Less

Do you take more than you need, living a life of excess and waste?

The money lesson comes to show us that we need less than what we think we do, and so each item is systematically stripped away from us until we recognize that we actually need very little.

Do you throw away a lot of food? Buy clothes you don’t need and never wear? Do you go shopping and spend money just for entertainment?

The downside of this lesson is its polarity: you accept and make do with less and less, and so you ask for less and less. At a point with this lesson, you have to turn it around and start asking and manifesting again, otherwise it won’t take off for you once you’ve hit the bottom of the lesson.

Taking Responsibility

Are you being asked to step up and take responsibility for what is happening in your life?

According to the Human Consciousness Scale (http://lifecoachestoolbox.com/index.php/the-human-consciousness-scale), published by Sir David Hawkins in Power vs. Force, the first true leap of growth happens at level 200, where people begin to take responsibility for their growth. The lesson here is power = responsibility, and it is the first lesson of consciousness.

This lesson is about accepting that you are not a victim and that you have created the reality that lies in front of you. When you accept that you are responsible for creating it, then you also realize that you have all the abilities you need to create a different reality, because you’ve already created this one.

Do you feel you’ve been lazy? Have you been procrastinating and delaying? Do you feel there is more you could be doing to change the situation? Do you feel powerless and hopeless – like this is completely outside your ability to change?

Do you need to step up and take responsibility?

The Incredible Story Of The “Black Jesus” From The 1960s

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There is a highly classified story about a man in Africa in the 1960s with ascended powers just like Jesus, as described in David Wilcock's latest book.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we still waiting for a savior or have we finally come to the realization in the awakening community that we are the ones we have been waiting for?

They say that truth is stranger than fiction. For many of us in search of the truth behind the controlled perception that the Cabal has very meticulously layered into our lives, we have found multitudinous bits and pieces of evidence that suggest that virtually nothing can be truly considered ‘impossible’ any more. Indeed, we have come to see that a lot of science fiction has actually been informed by truth, and movies and TV series often speak to historic events and technology that have already happened and been developed.

When Star Trek first came out, people were amazed that in this futuristic series people could step in front of a door and it would sense their presence and open automatically. In the actual filming of the original Star Trek series there was someone behind the panels opening and closing the doors on cue, but today we have the real thing and simply take this as normal and commonplace technology, which in fact was probably hidden from us since the days of Tesla until recently.

Using Discernment

Of course, if we feel that anything is possible then we run the risk of going along with disinformation and getting caught up in false leads that are not actually helping us get a better picture of the truth. It is more important than ever that we are vigilant, and our discernment powers continue to improve. For me, discerning truth is a matter of measuring any particular claim against the full body of knowledge I have accumulated, and see if there is a coherence with it. If it does not cohere with my belief system, that does not mean it is false, it just means I have something to measure it up against to evaluate if it makes sense. I can continue to hold beliefs that range from certain to doubtful, and as new information comes in, all my other beliefs are open to be challenged, as long as a more coherent ‘bigger picture’ comes into view as a result.

There is very little, then, that I hold as certain. Two of the fundamental anchors of my belief system is that we are all one, and that mind (the unmanifest) creates matter (the manifest), and this serves me well in having a foundation for a reality which is inevitably a fusion of the spiritual and the material.

The Story Of The “Black Jesus”

And so when I came across the story of the “Black Jesus” in David Wilcock’s latest book “The Ascension Mysteries: Revealing the Cosmic Battle Between Good and Evil,” my discernment filter was on high alert. The story sounded hard to believe based on my ordinary, everyday consciousness and personal experiences. However, having David Wilcock recount the story as coming straight from one of his trusted confidential sources adds a bit of credibility to it. That did not mean I truly believed it, or fully believe it to this day. But I continue to try to make sense of this story in terms of how it fits within my current paradigm of reality, and certainly in this regard it remains within the realm of possibility for me. Here is the story as recounted in the book:

advertisement - learn more

One of the most surprising stories Jacob ever told me concerned a man they called the “Black Jesus.” He said this was highly classified and he was definitely “talking out of school” to tell me about it at all. Apparently in the 1960s a man appeared in Africa who had full ascended abilities. He could read people’s minds, materialize objects out of thin air, communicate telepathically, levitate himself, and teleport his body from one location to another. He was a spiritual teacher who emphasized love, peace, service to others, and forgiveness as the common core that unified all the great religions. The Cabal does not want anyone to develop these abilities, and if they find out that someone has them, they will hunt those people down and terminate them with prejudice. The Cabal made several attempts to assassinate this man. He consistently regenerated his body after each attack, no matter how lethal it seemed to be.

Finally the man was told that they had given up. He was far too powerful. There was nothing they could do to stop him, and they were going to surrender. They invited him to a major world summit and told him they would reveal him to all of humanity so he could share his message. He was brought on board a military transport aircraft. Once airborne, he was shot repeatedly. His body was divided into many different sections, each of which was stored in a super-high-tech energy-shielded container. Jet aircraft rushed up to the plane in sequence and scrambled the containers all over the Earth, as far apart as possible. The contents were then thoroughly and completely destroyed. It was hoped that this would prevent him from being able to regenerate himself.

After this was done, the man materialized directly into the offices of the people who had ordered his murder. There were no visible signs of damage to his body. He said, “Your desire to prevent me from living on Earth is so strong that I am forced to honor it, for now. I will be leaving you shortly. However, in the future many more people will develop abilities just like me. Once that happens, you will no longer be able to stop us from making this world a peaceful place for everyone.”

How This Story Fits For Me

I found it fascinating that a being of such power would have to concede that the Cabal’s “desire” was so strong that he was forced to honor it. But this may be a clue for us about how things play out in our density of existence based on ‘free will,’ and beings of great power cannot simply come onto our planet and exert their own will over that of the inhabitants. True, most people on Earth might ultimately want what the “Black Jesus” was offering, but it would be necessary for more people to rise to a higher level of awareness for humanity to be able to say that it was “at choice” in this savior’s role on the planet.

I believe in the 1960s humanity was not ready for such a figure, in the sense that he would become an idol and people would not heed his message deeply and apply it to themselves, thus stunting their evolution. This is what happened with the original Jesus, whose message to humanity, “Whoever believes in me will also do the works that I am doing; He will do even greater things than these…” mostly fell upon deaf ears.

With his clairvoyant abilities he sees a future in which many more people will develop his abilities, and perhaps that is exactly what is coming to humanity in the coming years, where we ourselves have people rising from among us, and developing these powers.

The Takeaway

An ongoing theme in our awakening and evolution is that we have to get off our knees, that we have to stop waiting for a savior, and realize the WE are the ones we have been waiting for. The evolution of consciousness is a collective effort, but one in which we each have a unique, individual, personal stake. Moving forward, it is incumbent upon all of us to further our inner evolution towards an internal peace and harmony, whereby we create the fertile conditions within Collective Consciousness for many of us to develop abilities like the “Black Jesus” mentioned, that will ensure that this world becomes “a peaceful place for everyone.”

Is Marijuana Unhealthy? An In-Depth Look at the Research

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are large bodies of research that show the ups and downs of cannabis. Yes, much of it contradicts itself in many ways, but science is never all that cut and dry. Simply, cannabis does have negative side effects, but do they outweigh the pros?

  • Reflect On:

    Do you have an extreme pro or anti stance on cannabis? If so, why? Are we able to recognize the pros and the cons of cannabis and truly be open to them without getting triggered? Are we open to exploring spirituality without substances?

Here in Canada, Cannabis was recently legalized, essentially making it so that getting your hands on Cannabis and recreationally using it is now much easier and accepted. Let me be the first to say I feel this is a good thing, as I do not think the plant should have ever been illegal to begin with.

However, I do feel that this is quite a bit of a bait and switch by the government. We could go on for days about how this is simply a huge government control/profit tactic, huge tax opportunity and ultimately they will control the medical side even more etc. But we’ll leave this for another discussion. In fact, in just a few weeks I’m interviewing an incredibly knowledgeable figure in this space on the subject and much more on The Collective Evolution Podcast. So stay tuned.

Today, I simply want to explore some of the health effects of cannabis as I have found that anytime you have such extreme polarity around something, you get extreme beliefs, misinformation and falsehoods on either side. For example, someone reached out to us via email the other day simply because in one of our articles we stated that it was a good idea to not simply medicate ourselves with cannabis all the time when you are feeling down, but instead to also seek other forms of help. The person emailing was quite angry as they felt we were saying cannabis was bad. Meanwhile, all we were saying was, ‘medicine’ isn’t supposed to be taken every day.

The point is, some will have you think it’s the devil, while others think there is not a single negative side effect. Both are false. As the video below will summarize, “it’s totally wrong to say there are no negative health effects.” But are these health effects as bad as other common substances? No. So let’s ground this conversation and look at both sides objectively as that’s important.

One Quick Note On The Spiritual Aspects of Cannabis

Before we get into the health effects a bit more in the video below, I want to mention two quick things that come up a lot.

Often times people will assume my spiritual knowledge, calm way of being or state of consciousness must have come from either smoking weed or doing some other psychedelics. This is fair, as this is the CULTURE being aggressively pushed. Insight comes from psychedelics. If that were the case on a large scale, we’d see a massively spiritual world, but we don’t because it’s not that simple. This is, unfortunately, a ‘cure all’ culture that has gotten a bit out of control and makes it so that those new to the use of psychedelics can get lost or confused about them. If we remain grounded, in ANY subject, we can help many more people.

advertisement - learn more

For my journey, I did not grow up trying cannabis or using psychedelics. Cannabis experimentation came a bit later. All of what I currently know, in a spiritual sense, came from simply reflecting and practicing meditation and inner work. I have achieved ‘highs’ from meditation that you learn to bring into daily life in an incredible way. It’s not complicated, it just takes some practice.

Often times people claim that smoking cannabis connects them to god or their higherself. This is a fair thing to feel as I do know, from experience, that cannabis can help quiet the mind to some extent. If you are someone with a very active mind, smoking cannabis can show you what it’s like to have a less active mind. This can certainly be a good thing, but there’s more to this picture.

For me, I’ve experimented on multiple occasions with different strains, and have also ventured into edibles (which I knew wasn’t going to produce that result lol) and all I can say is, for me, this is not connecting to self or higherself. Nor was this the same type of ‘quiet mind’ that comes from meditation. Again, does it quiet your mind in a way? Yes. But something.. is missing.. so to speak, when we’re talking about truly connecting. It was not the same connection as in my normal waking state or my meditation states.

This led me to want to explore more about why people felt this way. Sure, in my direct experience, and I’m truly not meaning to offend here or anything as I feel this is an important conversation to have, but most of the people that were claiming they felt this ‘deep connection’ were not meditators nor practiced things of that nature. Intuitively I felt it was simply coming from the lack of knowledge and experience of what connecting to your true self or higherself actually is. Again, what I feel, and know from experience, is that what we feel when smoking cannabis is a quieter mind. To note, I can’t say that no one can connect to self on cannabis, as I imagine some may.

But I’ve been around people when they smoked, and their overall energy was not resonating in a place that was all that ‘high’, but more so sedated and relaxed. This did not remind me of the energy of being around a group of meditators for example. And this is what I mean by ‘something is missing.’ The energy, the state of being, is simply not the same.

So why do I say this? Why bring this up? Simply because I want to encourage those who are looking to go deeper, and find true inner peace in their waking life, to develop the necessary practices that will truly help them get there.

It feels as though, now, in this moment, and moving into 2019, the ‘trend,’ if you will, is going to evolve towards inner work. Less will we be pacifying and medicating (with things like food, sex, cannabis, alcohol etc.) in a sense, and more will we be truly looking to solve our challenges and turmoil from within. The substances we use may still be consumed for periods as we continue to explore this inner work, it’s not about having anything against them, for some of us, this helps us get through more difficult experience at the moment, but we also must look to do the true inner work that helps us evolve past these challenges, or else we will be pacifying our entire lives.

What can help us explore ourselves? I truly recommend committing to a 10-day meditation practice of just 10 minutes a day can provide enough insight into what this can look like that it can fuel a greater practice and understanding of what it is. For those wanting a bit more food for thought, check this out.

OK, enough about that, let’s jump into the research side of things.

Is Cannabis Healthy?

All of the research Mic refers to and links to support his work are in the video description on YouTube.

The Takeaway

As you probably noted in the video. Yes cannabis smoke, like other smoke, is harmful. It appears cannabis is mildly addictive or that people can make it habitually addictive, but it’s significantly less addictive than other substances like smoking or alcohol. Is it a gateway drug? Maybe slightly, but why do we ignoring alcohol as a gateway drug?

On a spiritual end, let’s truly attempt to develop that practice all the research and time-tested wisdom has always shown is the way to inner peace. Meditation! Start small and simple if you are intimidated. The point is, start!.

Notable Scientist Publishes A Book About ‘Real Magic’ That Nobel Laureates Are Endorsing

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dean Radin, chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, has published a book called "Real Magic." It has received praise from multiple scientists, including Nobel Laureates.

  • Reflect On:

    Despite the fact that controlled scientific experiments have produced significant results, this type of study is still labelled as pseudoscience by many academics, simply because it challenges what they've been trained to believe.

Is magic real? That depends on how you define it, but yes, I believe ‘magic’ is definitely real, and I’m clearly not the only one. Cases of ‘supernormal’ powers and ‘magic’ of all kinds have been reported throughout history and across almost all cultures–at least until religion was invented and these topics were ushered into the realm of the ‘demonic.’

Proponents of what we now call ‘magic’  include nearly all ancient literature from all parts of the world, from the Vedic texts and the yoga sutras, all the way to Moses, Jesus, Milarepa and Mohammed. Donald Lopez Jr., a professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies and the University of Michigan provides a great example in describing the Buddha:

With this enlightenment, he was believed to possess all manner of supernormal powers, including full knowledge of each of his own past lives and those of other beings, the ability to know others’ thoughts, the ability to create doubles of himself, the ability to rise into the air and simultaneously shoot fire and water from his body…Although he passed into nirvana at the age of eighty-one, he could have lived “for an aeon or until the end of the aeon” if only he had been asked to do so. (source)

The crazy thing is there are also modern day examples, but they mostly come from the black budget government programs. In 2016, I published a well-sourced article providing multiple examples from a CIA document that confirms the existence of humans with ‘special abilities’ who are able to do ‘impossible’ things. You can access that here.

‘Real Magic’

A book recently published by the Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dean Radin, entitled “Real Magic” has received some great reviews. The main premise is the idea that a hidden power resides within every single human being, a power tied to our consciousness, a power that makes phenomena like psychokinesis, remote viewing, and precognition not only possible but something that will perhaps one day be a normal part of all our lives. The book offers a vision of a scientifically informed magic and explains why magic will play a key role in the frontiers of science.

This falls into the realm of a field of study called non-material science. Nikola Tesla was a huge proponent of this, as he had said that the day humanity begins to study this subject matter is the day that humanity will advance at an exponential rate.

Far From “Pseudoscience”

Dr. Carl Jung once stated, “I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud.” This is something we should all hold in our minds as we examine this or other claims that are not part of our current perception.

The amount of statistically significant results when it comes to this reality, usually dubbed as “parapsychology,” is very significant. We are talking about hundreds, if not thousands of studies that have been conducted worldwide for decades.

There seems to be a deep concern that the whole field will be tarnished by studying a phenomenon that is tainted by its association with superstition, spiritualism and magic. Protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing. Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source)

A lot of the statistical results for parapsychology are just as strong, if not in some cases more significant, than a lot of the results which emerge from hard sciences, like physics and mechanical engineering. The Department of Defense has stated that results in this area are a clear sign that these phenomena are real, despite the fact that they are still somewhat unexplainable. As far back as 1999, a statistics professor even published a paper showing the results dealing with parapsychology and mind-body connection are a lot stronger than the results used to approve some of our medications. That study was done by Dr. Jessica Utts, as statistics professor in California who had this to say about Radin’s book:

Real Magic illustrates the limitations of 20th century science and proposes a more comprehensive view that incorporates ideas that have been associated with magic throughout the ages. Blending history, humor, and plausible hypotheses, Dean Radin illustrates that there is a staggering amount of evidence for a broader view of science that offers hope for the future of humanity.” 

Another review:

“A thought-provoking book. The author makes a convincing case for the reality and significance of magic.” —Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate in Physics and Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of Cambridge

Today, hundreds of scientists are coming together to emphasize that matter is not the only reality. They’ve created a manifesto, and you can find links and access more information about this initiative, which started a few years ago, in an article we published here.

“Some scientists are confident that we already know what is and is not possible. But the truth is that science is very much in its infancy. To advance our understanding requires bold excursions into domains some might consider heretical, including esoteric legends about magic that have persisted for thousands of years. This is what Dean Radin sets out to do with Real Magic. In my judgment, it succeeds in blazing new trails. Well worth the read.”  Kary Mullis PhD, Nobel Laureate (Chemistry)

The Global Elite Use Magic

While talking about magic in this sense, it’s also important to mention the global elite, and the idea that they also use metaphysical/magical ‘knowing’ and concepts. Unfortunately, they do so not for the joy of discovery, or from a place of good intention, but from a selfish, egoic place, a place that is in service to self, and not in service to others. This is a big point to consider when discussing whether humanity needs to take down the global elite in order to evolve. You can read more about my thoughts regarding magic and the global elite in the article ‘How Some of The World’s Elite Use Black Magic Rituals To Conjure Up Entities For More Power.’

I believe that as human consciousness evolves and we become more aware of who we are, and our capabilities, we will also realize that love, compassion, and empathy are all needed for us to thrive. Once we completely grasp this, I believe, these ‘abilities’ that lay dormant within us will begin to show themselves more and more.

The Takeaway

The takeaway here is to keep in open mind, and to recognize that what we think we know is always subject to change. Sometimes these things take a while, even if a sufficient amount of evidence has been provided. This type of study opens up new understandings about the nature of our reality, and would change ‘science’ and the current laws that govern it forever. Non-material science truly represents the next scientific revolution.
