5 Steps To Getting Out Of Your Own Way

Have you ever felt like you get in your own way? That, when working toward your goals, your path always follows the frustrating sequence of one step forward, two steps back?

We all get in our own way at times, particularly when it comes to the areas in life that we struggle with the most. Getting in your own way can make it difficult to take the actions that will improve your situation.

-->Listened to our latest podcast episode yet? Joe speaks with Franco DeNicola to explore how we can overcome fears and uncertainty during this time. This episode includes some helpful exercises as well. Click here to listen!

For example, if you struggle with your weight, you likely get in your own way by not exercising regularly or eating well. If saving money is the problem, you likely have adopted a mindset that isn’t conducive to creating long term wealth.

Whatever your struggle is, getting in your own way suggests that you may not have a healthy relationship with yourself in that area of your life. As such, taking action toward the goals that you set will feel difficult (at times, impossible), and you’ll often struggle to find the motivation necessary to get things done.

Below you’ll find five suggestions for getting out of your own way. Commit to improving in one of these areas, and you will likely upgrade the others as well. Self-growth is a whole process, greater than the sum of its parts, and improvement in one area will lead to transformation in another.

1. Eliminate negative self-talk.

 You’ve probably heard before that negative self-talk can inhibit your ability to achieve a goal. There are many reasons this is true, but here’s one of the most important.

advertisement - learn more

All human behaviour is the result of you choosing to either avoid pain or seek out pleasure. Think about any behaviour you engage in regularly, and you likely can deduce which one it is for you.

It’s important you understand, then, that negative self-talk is painful on a level that only we can create for ourselves. When you demand perfection, or when you berate yourself because things didn’t go perfectly or how you imagined they would, your brain associates these negative feelings with your experience.

This could be why you avoid the activity that will help you reach your goals. Show more compassion to yourself and remember that achievement is a journey. No matter who you are or where you’re from, you will experience failure at some point, but failure is necessary for growth and, as such, should be embraced rather than feared.

2. Take a new approach to stop doing things you know you shouldn’t be doing.

Have you ever found yourself doing the thing you had, just moments ago, said you wouldn’t do? Most of us are all-too familiar with this scenario.

If that’s the case, I encourage you to flip your own script and take control in another manner. Instead of focusing on the things you shouldn’t be doing, focus on the things you should. Begin referring to these things as your “non-negotiables.”

For example, if your goal is to build a business, your non-negotiables each day might be:

  1. Cold call or cold email five prospective clients
  2. Spend one hour developing or growing your business
  3. Write one new blog post for your social media outlets

In this scenario, you take the focus off the minutiae that you sometimes get distracted by or caught up in — checking social media, answering emails, improving your website, etc. — and place it instead on getting your non-negotiables, the things you SHOULD be doing, done first. Whatever happens after that happens. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you moved the needle and advanced yourself on that day.

Apply this to any area of your life and watch how this shift in focus destroys your tendency to do exactly what you think you shouldn’t.

3. Wisely choose the people in your life that you spend time with and take advice from.  

It’s a simple solution, but if you feel like you are getting in your own way, take a look at the people closest to you. If you find that your social circle enables you to make bad choices or live in a manner that is out of alignment with the vision you have for your life, you need to change that. Going out several nights a week or doing things that violate your values or beliefs for the sake of convenience is not doing you any favours.

While I’m not suggesting that you dramatically delete anyone from your phone who isn’t helping you reach your goals, I do recommend you start consciously limiting the time you spend around them. As with suggestion #2, your goal is to achieve peace of mind. What level of exposure to your friends and family will give you peace of mind and keep you effective at the same time?

Like it or not, the people that are closest to us influence our moods, beliefs, and actions. The people around you can help you reach your goals or can be a major reason why you never get there. Only you can decide what is right for you. Just remember, when it doesn’t feel right, it’s time to make a change.

4. Negatively perceiving your past failures.

 A surefire manner of getting in your own way is to believe that the future will be just like the past. When you think about it, it’s kind of a dumb belief. If we were all doomed to repeat our mistakes, why would we ever bother trying to improve ourselves?

Deep down, you know it might be similar. There’s a good chance you’ll struggle with the same one or two things that beat you up last time. But the outcome can always change. Achievers understand that failure is a form of feedback. When you fail, you’ve learned another way that isn’t going to help you reach your goals, and that it’s time to move on and try something else.

Make it a goal to give yourself a clean slate for your new journey every time you start something new. Stop associating past failures with new ventures. If anything, look deeply into what went awry last time and seek solutions that are specific to those problems before you get started again.

5. Getting ‘unstuck’ from the cycle of stress and self-doubt.

This last one is for people who have chronically struggled with something — weight loss, making money, breaking bad habits, improving their personal lives, etc. If it’s been years and you still haven’t gotten results no matter how hard you’ve tried, you might understand what it’s like to feel like you’re in a “cycle” of failure.

  Typically, the cycle goes like this:

  1. Something external motivates you to get started again.
  2. You make a grand plan that you’re sure is going to be the solution to your problems.
  3. Day 1 comes, and you’re confident in your abilities and excited to get moving.
  4. Day 3 hits, and you’re not as confident as you were when it started. Things get hard.
  5. Day 4 comes, you fall off the wagon, slip up, or don’t take any action.
  6. Days 5-7 are typically spent feeling depressed, upset, or stressed. For some, they are also the times when you binge.

 Wash, rinse, repeat. Three to four weeks go by, and you start the cycle all over again.

The solution here is this: Break your pattern by taking bold action toward your outcome. What could you do that would prevent you from turning back? Book a spot at a workshop? Throw out all the junk food in your pantry? If excuses were not allowed, what would that action be? Leverage that understanding and do all that you can do make it happen.

You’ll be surprised at how quickly you realize that the old cycle you were stuck in no longer seems as inevitable.

Final Thoughts

While getting out of your own way can’t be solved overnight, it can be eradicated over time if you strive for small advancements in the areas you struggle most. Consider it a win if you catch yourself before falling into old habits even once.

Be objective with your experiences and don’t get upset, even if you’ve never seen anything other than nominal success followed by failure. The truth is, you are entirely more capable at this point than you’ve ever been before because of what you’ve been through. With that in mind, strive for continual 1% improvements each day. You’ll be surprised how quickly the transformation comes.

Ultimately, it’s up to you to have the difficult conversation with yourself that will serve as the catalyst for progress. Don’t be afraid to pull up the hood and look for the problems. For all of us, that’s the start of getting out of our own way.

Intuition Is A “Superpower” Representing One of The Highest Forms of Intelligence

Avatar

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A number of experiments have shown that human intuition is quite real and in some cases can be measurable.

  • Reflect On:

    How often do you use your intuition when it comes to decision making in your life? How often do you trust your gut instinct and follow your heart?

Mainstream science has been catching on to the fact that non-physical aspects of the human being are not only real, but they can be grown and developed into powerful tools for personal development and use. Non physical phenomena, like intuition, remote viewing, telepathy, and precognition (to name a few) for example, have been studied at the highest levels of government for decades. Various nations have poured millions if not billions of dollars into these programs for with demonstrated repeated success, but despite this fact these findings remain heavily unacknowledged, ridiculed, “classified” and in many cases chucked in the “pseudoscience” bucket.

It’s understandable, new information and discoveries have always been heavily opposed and “scoffed” at by intellectual authorities, especially if these discoveries don’t fit within the accepted framework of knowledge. There’s a general tendency to dismiss ideas that go against the grain and conflict what we’ve previously convinced ourselves is truth.

So, what exactly is intuition? A good way to describe it is a gut feeling, a sense, or a feeling about something. It’s arriving to some sort of truth about something, an event or experience without using any type of analytic reasoning. Intuition has been measured, which is why the US Office of Naval Research (ONR) admitted to developing methods to develop and measure this phenomenon for their soldiers.

We have to understand what gives rise to this so-called ‘sixth sense,’ says Peter Squire, a program officer in ONR’s Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism department. Today’s Navy scientists place less emphasis on trying to understand the phenomena theoretically and more on using technology to examine the mysterious process, which Navy scientists assure the public is not based on superstition. “If the researchers understand the process, there may be ways to accelerate it — and possibly spread the powers of intuition throughout military units,” says Dr. Squire. The Pentagon’s focus is to maximize the power of the sixth sense for operational use. 

As mentioned before, many interesting abilities that go beyond the conscious mind and utilize what some would call metaphysical aspects have long been used by governments and intelligence agencies. Perhaps one day the human race will use these abilities for progress and to better the human experience. It’s like technology, do we use it for the good of humanity or do we use it to build more powerful and destructive bombs and weaponry? This is why we here at Collective Evolution always emphasize that humanity needs a shift in consciousness. Our discoveries and developments don’t really matter, it’s more so the consciousness behind those discoveries that do. This is why we believe that the greatest and most potent form of change comes from within.

Dr. Judith Orloff, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA told Forbes that, “In my my private practice, I work with women executives who come to me to develop their intuition. They see it as a ‘superpower’ to use in all decisions at work as well as a guide for how to be good leaders and organizers” According to Dr. Orloff, scientists believe intuition operates through the entire right side of our brain, the brain’s hippocampus and through our gut (digestive system has neurons as well).

Alexandra Mysoor, the writer of the Forbes article goes on to explain:

When the neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) in your gut fire up, you may be feeling either “butterflies” or queasy sensations. Pay attention to those. It’s no accident we use the term intuition and gut feeling interchangeably because science has now shown us that our gut has a brain of its own, a second brain so to speak. In fact, our gut has an entire network of neurotransmitters called the enteric nervous system.

The body is truly an amazing puzzle, and we probably haven’t moved beyond the tip of the iceberg when it comes to discovering what we are actually capable of.  For example, a study (meta analysis) in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience titled “Predicting the unpredictable: critical analysis and practical implications of predictive anticipatory activity” examined a number of experiments regarding precognition. These experiments indicate that the human body can actually detect randomly delivered stimuli that occur 1-10 seconds in advance. In other words, the human body seems to know of an event and reacts to an event that has yet to occur. What occurs in the human body before these events are physiological changes that are measured in the cardiopulmonary, the skin, and the nervous system.

Pretty cool, isn’t it? Another article written for Forbes written by Bruce Kasanoff by explains,

Intuition, argues Gerd Gigerenzer, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, is less about suddenly “knowing” the right answer and more about instinctively understanding what information is unimportant and can thus be discarded.

Gigerenzer, author of the book Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious, says that he is both intuitive and rational. “In my scientific work, I have hunches. I can’t explain always why I think a certain path is the right way, but I need to trust it and go ahead. I also have the ability to check these hunches and find out what they are about. That’s the science part. Now, in private life, I rely on instinct. For instance, when I first met my wife, I didn’t do computations. Nor did she.”

A paper published in 2008 by Dean Radin, Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) explains,

Intuition is widely regarded as a key source of inspiration in medical diagnosis, technological innovation,business decisions, artistic achievement, and scientific discovery. Based upon an analysis of the lives of numerous scientific icons, Root-Bernstein concluded that “Virtually without exception, the greatest mathematicians and scientists assert that the development of this pictorial, visual, kinesthetic, or generally sensual algorithm (associated with intuition) is the basis for scientific thinking. But what is intuition? Given its central role in advancing science and civilization, one might expect that this topic has been a keen subject of inquiry, especially within academic psychology, for many decades. Surprisingly, until recently it has been studiously ignored. This may be because the quasi-magical, non-rational nature of intuition presents an embarrassing challenge to science, which prides itself on the power of rational knowing. Intuitive knowledge does not appear to function like the methodical interferences associated with rational thought.It arises “in a flash,” or “out of the blue,” sometimes with correct answers to thorny scientific and technical problems, elegant solutions to complex mathematical theorems, and complete scores for intricate musical compositions.

The Institute of HeartMath alongside Radin conducted an interesting experiment a few years ago. They explain,

Twenty-six adults experienced in using HeartMath techniques and who could sustain a heart-coherent state completed two rounds of study protocols approximately two weeks apart. Half of the participants completed the protocols after they intentionally achieved a heart-coherent state for 10 minutes. The other half completed the same procedures without first achieving heart coherence. Then they reversed the process for the second round of monitoring, with the first group not becoming heart-coherent before completing the protocols and the second group becoming heart-coherent before. The point was to test whether heart coherence affected the results of the experiment.

Participants were told the study’s purpose was to test stress reactions and were unaware of its actual purpose. (This practice meets institutional-review-board standards.) Each participant sat at a computer and was instructed to click a mouse when ready to begin.

The screen stayed blank for six seconds. The participant’s physiological data was recorded by a special software program, and then, one by one, a series of 45 pictures was displayed on the screen. Each picture, displayed for 3 seconds, evoked either a strong emotional reaction or a calm state. After each picture, the screen went blank for 10 seconds. Participants repeated this process for all 45 pictures, 30 of which were known to evoke a calm response and 15 a strong emotional response.

The results of the experiment were fascinating to say the least. The participants’ brains and hearts responded to information about the emotional quality of the pictures before the computer flashed them (random selection). This means that the heart and brain were both responding to future events. The results indicated that the responses happened, on average, 4.8 seconds before the computer selected the pictures.

How mind-altering is that?

Even more profound, perhaps, was data showing the heart received information before the brain. “It is first registered from the heart,” Rollin McCraty Ph.D. explained, “then up to the brain (emotional and pre-frontal cortex), where we can logically relate what we are intuiting, then finally down to the gut (or where something stirs).”

This study showed that the heart, alongside the brain, has some sort of intuitive intelligence.

The Takeaway: We are living in a day and age where new information and evidence are constantly emerging, challenging what we once thought was real or what we think we know about ourselves as human beings.  It’s best to keep an open mind. Perhaps there are aspects of ourselves and our consciousness that have yet to be discovered. Perhaps if we learn from this information it can help us better ourselves and others.

We live our lives constantly thinking and analyzing, we grow up in school memorizing and we are not really taught anything about our feelings, emotions and intuition. Imagine the difference it would make in our individual and collective lives if we grew up learning how to trust our intuition, how to follow it and what it is? It begs the question, how many of us truly follow our heart? We seem to be thrust into a system that encourages us to find the best job and really think about our future. There’s nothing wrong with that but we have to ask ourselves, what impact does it have on us mentally if we do not follow our heart, our intuition? Are we seeing a big rise in drug use, depression and other mental issues because society forces us to in a direction we really don’t desire to go? Are we unhappy because we are not engaging in things that our heart desires to engage in? Are we not doing enough of what we love? Something to think about. Never ignore the voice of your gut, your heart, your intuition. It’s always telling us something and it’s time we ‘listen.’ This applies to all experiences, from deciphering information and truth to determining what path it is you want to take in life.

5 Reasons To Have Hope For Humanity In 2021 & Beyond

Avatar

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    2020 has been challenging for all of us, but there are plenty of reasons to remain hopeful for humanity in 2021 and beyond.

  • Reflect On:

    Are you feeling more hopeful or fearful heading in to 2021? How open minded have you been when looking at everything that has happened this year thus far?

2020 has certainly been an “interesting” year to say the least. And while there are at least two very different perspectives towards everything that’s been happening -including who may or may not ultimately be behind it all, and to what end -it’s been undeniably challenging for all of us.

Even the most introverted among us cannot love a reality where we are largely kept away from our loved ones, discouraged from leaving the “comforts” of our own home for anything other than the bare essentials, and a looming fear of either or both the virus itself or what could come from its continued presence.

It has taken its toll on all of us, but it has also given us a number of glimpses into humanity that I’m sure many of us thought we may never see in this lifetime. Here are 5 reasons why despite all of the ugliness that 2020 has brought out in all of us, I still personally hold hope for humanity in 2021 and beyond:

1. People (For The Most Part) Are Inherently Good

While either watching the mainstream news or scrolling through your favorite social media newsfeed may serve as better proof of the opposite, I’m a firm believer that there are substantially more examples of the goodness in people than there is proof of the less than flattering. True heroes have risen out of this situation in communities all across the world, whether or not their actions are in alignment with your overall perspective of what’s going on.

Yes, the healthcare worker that has been working overtime to give people the care they need is a hero that cares, even if you think this entire situation is a hoax. And yes, the person fighting to ensure we are given the full story before rolling up our sleeves to accept anything is a hero that cares, even if you’ve been hoping and praying for that substance’s arrival. Heroes are everywhere and in even far less outwardly noticeable ways if you just choose to look for them without bias.

2. The Response In Support Of Local Businesses

While certain mega-companies may be thriving like never before since this entire situation kicked in, there has also been a very heartwarming response by many of us to standby and support local businesses. Whether it’s by continuing to purchase from them through curb-side pickup, promoting them through social media, or even standing up against any differences in how they are allowed to operate by comparison to the big box chains, quite a few of us having been doing quite a bit to show that we care and want to see them remain a part of our community moving forward.

3. How Much We’ve Already Withstood To Make It To This Point

As I said to open this piece, 2020 hasn’t been easy. The fact that we are all still here is a testament to just how resilient and capable we are of overcoming what it still to come our way.

4. The Power of Our Mind’s Desire To Get Beyond This

I’m a firm believer in the incredible power of our mind, and just how much of an impact in can have on our ability to sink or swim in challenging times. With this situation now having gone on for months, I don’t know anyone that isn’t longing to freely spend quality time with their loved ones, to gather at mass events, to travel or do any of the seemingly endless number of things that currently aren’t possible. That desire to me is a powerful fuel that will drive us all to ensure 2021 and beyond are much closer to what the human experience was designed to be: free.

5. We Are Largely All Driven By The Same Core Intention

This is by far the biggest reason why I am holding out hope for humanity in 2021 and beyond so please read these words carefully. As divided as we may currently seem, where some of us see things in one way while many others see things completely differently, but both think the other are flat out crazy and/or “blind” to not be in agreement with them, we actually have the same core intention.

Yes, believe it or not, the person who believes QAnon and the person who trusts Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates both ultimately want the same thing: for them and their loved ones to be healthy, happy and free.

We cannot lose sight of that core similarity -and it’s a similarity that exists even if your beliefs aren’t as drastic as the examples I chose to give for dramatic effect. So rather than creating another post where you label the other as either a “sheep” or “conspiracy theorist” remember that you really aren’t that different after all. And the sooner we cut the name calling and instead start focusing on how we can truly get beyond this, while uncovering whatever the truth really is, the sooner we can all get back to what we know and love.


As much as I’d love to say that 2020 has left me feeling nothing but hopeful for the future, it hasn’t. And that’s why I’ve also put together a second vlog outlining 5 Reasons Why I’m Losing Faith In Humanity For 2021 and Beyond:

The “Great Conjunction” On December 21st 2020: People Are Saying There’s Going To Be An “Event”

Avatar

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    On December 21st of this year, the winter solstice, Jupiter and Saturn are going to be an astonishing 0.1 degrees apart — less than the diameter of a full moon. March 4, 1226, was the last time they were in such close proximity.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it a coincidence that this is happening on the winter solstice? Do major astrological events like this impact human consciousness in any type of way? Are the cosmos directly intertwined with human consciousness? Or universal consciousness?

Follow me on Instagram hereMake sure you follow Collective Evolution on Telegram as we have no idea how much longer we will be on Facebook.

New podcast about The Great Conjunction and the Age of Aquarius here.

In the spiritual/truther community, talk of a big event has been a common theme for more than a decade. This usually includes a giant solar flare that will completely wipe out the electrical grid, some sort of event that will upgrade human DNA, some sort of mass extraterrestrial sighting, or something along those lines that will bring about big changes and transform our world as we know it forever.

Many people thought something like this was going to happen on December 21st 2012, it didn’t. Many have suggested various other dates since then, and they usually correlate with great astrological events, like the one that’s set to take place on December 21st, 2020, less than two weeks from now. Again, a portion of this community believes some sort of big event is going to happen, but based on these predictions that seem to have been a constant in the spiritual/truther community, nothing noticeable is going to happen. That being said, I am open to the idea of the possibility of some sort of event that’s truly special, but the idea of waiting for something to take place that will completely change the human experience as we know it today just doesn’t resonate with me, although I wish it would.

To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if it did given everything that’s happening on our planet. But I do know one thing, humanity must learn to live together in peace and good will.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, we are the ones that will change things, and are changing things. Waiting for something outside of us to do that, I believe, is not the message of this special time that many of us feel we are living in. Furthermore, I believe we are currently living through and witnessing this “event” as a process that continues to speed up every single day, month and year.

Perhaps from the perspective of elsewhere this “event” is occuring in a blink of an eye, and perhaps from our perspective it’s a process of many years. Who knows?

What’s Going To Happen: On December 21st of this year, the winter solstice, Jupiter and Saturn coincidently will appear to almost merge in our night sky, appearing almost as one giant star to the visible eye. They are usually separated by 400 million miles. I personally don’t believe it to be mere coincidence that such a close alignment is happening on the winter solstice, and I do believe this to be a very special event, possibly with tremendous implications, implications for human consciousness that we may not even recognize. I’m just not sure if we will be able to quite see these implications play out how some think they may, I do believe some people may be able to feel something, but ultimately I believe that for your average person, nothing will be noticed at all, despite the fact that, again, I do believe it is a very significant event for multiple reasons.

“Alignments between these two planets are rather rare, occurring once every 20 years or so, but this conjunction is exceptionally rare because of how close the planets will appear to one another,” Rice University astronomer Patrick Hartigan said in a statement. “You’d have to go all the way back to just before dawn on March 4, 1226, to see a closer alignment between these objects visible in the night sky.”

According to LiveScience, “Before the very close 1623 great conjunction, which was likely impossible to see from Earth because the planets appeared so close to the sun, the last visible and seemingly intimate meeting between Jupiter and Saturn happened in March 1226.”

Jupiter and Saturn are going to be an astonishing 0.1 degrees apart — less than the diameter of a full moon. This is truly a special event for us to witness, and again, given my belief in the cosmos and their connection to human consciousness, I do believe it to be extremely significant, with huge implications as humanity moves forward.  The word “conjunction” is used by astronomers to describe the meeting of objects in our night sky, and the great conjunction occurs between the two largest planets in our solar system: Jupiter and Saturn.

Every 200 years they cross each-others path in a different sign, this year we are moving from Earth to Air, which is also why many believe this is significant. That being said, it’s important to mention here that I don’t know much about astrology, and I am not an expert.

I also believe that it’s been confirmed that major astrological events and changes directly correlate with human consciousness. Human consciousness is shifting dramatically and the way we perceive ourselves, the human experience, the cosmos and the nature of reality is rapidly changing, and again, I do believe this is directly correlated with the activity of the cosmos. We already know that cosmic activity affects all biological systems on Earth, probably in ways we have yet to understand or even notice. I believe this is why we are starting to ask ourselves why we live the way we do, and why do we do the things we do. We are starting to ask deeper questions about the human experience, and many of us are starting to see that we have the potential to create a much better human experience, one that resonates deeply with who we are. All of this, in some way I don’t understand, is connected to the movement of the cosmos as our consciousness is connected to all. All is one.

Many believe we are also transitioning into the Age of Aquarius, a time of prosperity, truth, transparency and light, from a dark age that’s lasted thousands of years. Although the beginning of this age is highly debated, we seem to be in the cusp of it in my opinion. This correlates with various ancient viewpoints and indigenous prophecy as well. Our current age that we are now transitioning out of is described in The Mahabharata, a time when mental capabilities reach their lowest point and moral virtue is stripped from the Earth. As independent researcher Bibhu Dev Misra writes, when the “World Soul” is full of blackness and corruption, and only a small fraction of virtue remains, it “slowly dwindles to zero at the end of the Kali Yuga. Men turn to wickedness; disease, lethargy, anger, natural calamities, anguish and fear of scarcity dominate. Penance, sacrifices and religious observances fall into disuse. All creatures degenerate. Change passes over all things, without exception.” 

Carl Jung also describes this transition,

“As we know from Ancient Egyptian History, these events are symptoms of psychic changes that always appear at the end of one platonic month, and at the beginning of another. They are, it seems, changes in the constellation of psychic dominance, of the archetypes or gods, as they used to be called, which bring about or accompany long lasting transformations of the collective psyche.  This transformation started within the historical tradition and left traces behind it. First, in the transition from the age of Torus to that of Aries, and then from Aries to Pisces, whose beginning coincides with the rise of Christianity (mentioned above).  We are now nearing the great change, which may be expected, when the spring point, enters Aquarius.” 

These periods apparently mark very important social psychological change in the life of individuals, and the collective.

You can listen to Manly P. Hall, recognized as one of the world’s leading scholars in the fields of religion, mythology, mysticism, and the occult, discuss this time we are now transitioning into, here, where he discusses Carl Jung’s book on the UFO phenomenon linked above. This phenomenon is one of many that’s creeping into the collective mind because, again, we are in this time of transition and consciousness expansion. It’s just one of many examples, it’s not hard to see if you look at the world we are living in today. A lot is going on

 I believe these changes, events, and energies that may be coming to Earth impact us greatly and that it happens little by little over time, and that we are currently experiencing it. I believe this coming winter solstice is probably another one of those moments, but I do believe this type of thing is ongoing. I don’t think something major is going to happen that’s going to change life as we know it in one day, but again, but who knows? One hundred years, or one thousand years in our years may be a millisecond for those who are watching from somewhere else. Perhaps our perception of time distorts how we perceive events that truly do have a giant impact on human consciousness.

Our documentary Collective Evolution III provides a more indepth and detailed discussion of this topic if you’re interested.
