Why ‘Having It All’ Doesn’t Make You Happy (& What Does)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Material wealth does not equate happiness. One can be 'on top of the world' to the masses, but still be unhappy and feel a lack in their lives.

  • Reflect On:

    We are limitless beings experiencing life through our own personal lens, and as we journey forth it is important to remember that true wealth is that of sound mind, body, and Soul.

There are plenty of idioms I could bring to point in starting this article, but I won’t beat around the bush. We are all aware or have at the very least heard that ‘money can’t buy happiness,’ and within the spiritual community, we seem to understand the depths of that message. So why is it that some of us still seek to attain a life or lifestyle that seems to fall under that very pretense?

It’s simple, we’ve been programmed to believe and sold on the idea that it will, in fact, bring us happiness in all ways as soon as we reach a certain level of ‘success.’ Whether it be through advertising, marketing or social media & celebrity influence, we have probably been subjected to a false reality on some screen or another.  

Important to note, I am not saying that money is ‘evil’ or that having wealth in this form is ‘wrong’ – but more so that the act of striving for success in monetary form will never fill the void we believe we have. 

Over the past few weeks alone we have seen multiple deaths, claimed to be by suicide, of people who were notably regarded to be of influence, wealth and perceived as happy in their lives. It’s a touchy subject and we know it’s not at all solely those that are idolized that suffer from such deep sadness, but for this example it is crucial to make my point in that, as the title implies, having it all does not mean you are automatically rewarded with happiness.

Let’s Get Personal

A little personal tidbit as well to add to the mix is my own experience within the entertainment industry and my glimpses of such ‘success’ over the years I spent modeling. At the time, I was 18 years old and had just moved to NYC and was quickly swooped up by a big talent agency. Within weeks, I landed my first big advertisement campaign for Timex and Marc Ecko and could be seen in magazines and on billboards around the globe.

After a few months of this, I moved into an apartment in the city and a couple years later a penthouse. I knew just about everybody who was ‘somebody,’ but there was still this IMMENSE sense of lack, and though my practice (meditation) was still being implemented, it was less consistent and more disrupted with chaos than peace due to the fast pace of both the city I lived in and my career.

After a million & one lessons (and clear signs from the Universe), I made the decision to come back to my Self; ground and re-connect. How did this look for me? One day I just got up and left – cold turkey. All of my material possessions, memories, etc. (extreme, I know – but at the time it just felt so right) left behind as I hailed that taxi, headed straight to the airport, and moved onto a new (more meaningful & resonating) journey.

So, if what’s been glorified for eons to equate happiness (fame, fortune, etc.) is not the key, what is?  

Sure, you most certainly can be financially well-off and be happy, but the happiness more than likely would not be coming from where most believe, but more so would be from being aligned, at peace with & grateful for where one is – no matter the case; and this is the key. Being happy, or at peace, does not come from outside, but from within.

The Inner Work  

Self-love, awareness, and development (the inner work) has been highlighted in both the spiritual and wellness communities as of late, and is quickly making its way into the mainstream as a ‘hot topic’ – and it couldn’t have come at a better time. It may be a trendy subject to discuss at the moment, but it is also necessary for our evolution to look within, tune into ourselves and break free of the programming and patterns we have acquired over the years.

Making time for spiritual growth goes back centuries when reflection, meditation, and breathing techniques were used regularly to attain states of clarity and bliss within oneself.  So why had mainstream media kept it from us for so long? Well, this is the kicker – the commercialized mainstream-take on ‘having it all’ may not work in attaining happiness, but it does work in keeping us enslaved to the system that we currently live in. And that’s exactly what they want; the more we are unaware of the better – and what they didn’t tell you nor want you to know is that YOU ALREADY HAVE IT ALL, WITHIN YOU – and you just need to remember, awaken & tap into it.

So, how do we go about utilizing the same tools and techniques to aid in our spiritual journey and work towards our personal happiness? Devotion, patience & practice.

Practice Exercise   

Allot yourself a minimum of 30 minutes for some “Me time”

Find a space where you can clear your mind; some place where there are no distractions, preferably in nature.  

What to Bring with You 

Notebook, pen, blanket/towel (something to put down to sit/lay on), water (always stay hydrated!), camera for documentation (memory building), and crystals (if you own any – for cleansing, charging and setting intent – more on this in later weeks!).  Nothing else, and please – try and leave all digital distractions behind (cell, tablet, etc.).

This is YOUR time for YOU; during this period nothing else matters or exists.  As our first week together, I would like to start off with the simplest and yet one of the most rewarding experiences: meditation.  

When you’ve found the perfect spot, get comfortable and situate yourself in a position where you will be able to be still and unbothered for at least half an hour.  Take in the view, and if you couldn’t make it out into the world – no worries! A quiet space alone is more than enough – be it your room, a library, etc. – just enjoy your own company.  

Moving forward, open up your notebook and start to write whatever comes to mind – free-flowing thoughts with no restraints.  After a few minutes or until you feel ready, put it away and off to the side – then close your eyes, breathe deeply, really focusing on each breath – in & out – and clear your mind.  

As thoughts begin to arise (“this is silly,”  “..what will I be eating later,” “I wonder..” etc. etc.), listen to what is being ‘said.’ – Is it purposeful? Positive?  That may not be the case starting off, but pay attention to the energy – how you FEEL – release all worries, doubts, fears, and limits and allow the thoughts to flow through, and just BE. Do not place judgment or stress on what is coming through, but take notice.

Stillness and silence here is a beautiful thing which can bring about so much magic if you solely allow. Sit and enjoy your time, breathing in the Universe and just BEING.  

Give yourself 15 minutes (that’s not much in correlation to a day’s supposed worth, right? ..and this is YOU we are speaking of, YOU DESERVE IT!).  After wrapping up some time here, new thoughts, ideas, discoveries may have been had/made – So, now – take out your notebook again, and write away!  I suggest doing this every time – prior & before – in order to see your growth not only over time, but as you step into your Self & center, and as you awaken anew.    

If you would like to experience a guided meditation to begin with, we offer a powerful one, called Healing Journey, for free so that anyone can download and enjoy. 

Until next time!

This is solely the beginning, you are blessed light and together we shall shine.

Full Moon In Taurus: Surprises, Changes & Breakthroughs

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Taurus on October 24th/25th depending on where you are located in the world. This marks the peak of the Lunar Cycle that began on October 8th/9th with a New Moon in Libra. 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.

At every Full Moon we feel a push-pull between the two opposite signs where the Sun and Moon are located, in this case being Taurus and Scorpio. However, with this specific Full Moon, Venus retrograde and Uranus are directly connected to the opposition which brings its own energy in a strong way which will get into in the next part of the article.

Scorpio season began the day before this Full Moon, yet we’ve already been getting a taste of it prior with other planets being located there. Scorpio is about power, transformation, intensity, sexuality, passion, regeneration, fears, and depth. It can be complex, mysterious, vengeful, manipulative, calculated, compulsive, and obsessive. As a water sign, it is emotional and intuitive.

This Full Moon in the opposite sign of Taurus brings its themes to the equation. This sign is practical and simplified. It is associated with physical things, beauty, and stimulating the senses. Taurus is about the natural world as well as food, money, values, worth, and resources. It can be slow, thorough, indulging, deliberate, reliable, cautious, yet lazy and procrastinating. As an Earth sign, Taurus is grounded and realistic.

Full Moon Conjunct Uranus Opposite Sun & Venus, Saturn In The Mix

Normally in the above paragraph, I would have mentioned how Taurus is stable and routine oriented. However, this Full Moon is aligned with Uranus which is the complete opposite of that. Uranus is a big factor of this Full Moon and it overrides some of the general Taurus themes. Uranus is unpredictable and can bring surprises, shakeups, breakthroughs, sudden happenings, separations, rebellion, and sometimes even accidents.  It can also be revolutionary, innovative, scientific, metaphysical,  non-conforming, awakening, insightful, exciting, and bring new experiences. Uranus is associated with originality, freedom, and change.

Venus is the ruler of Taurus and has been retrograde since October 5th/6th (until November 16th) in the opposite sign of Scorpio where the Sun is at this lunation. This retrograde period is a time of re-orientation of things connected to Venus which could include relationships, friendships, love, values, money, beauty, pleasures, fun, art, or creativity. You can read more about this Venus Retrograde here.

This Venus retrograde energy is strongly highlighted at this Full Moon because Venus rules Taurus and it will be joining the Sun exactly a few days following which is always a significant part of a retrograde as it is a ‘seeding’ period. Things that occur or thoughts that we have during the last 10 days of October (especially 25th – 27th) can somehow contribute to how things play out over the following 10 months when it comes to some Venus-ruled areas mentioned above.

This Full Moon and Venus retrograde are in harmonious aspects with Saturn. Although Uranus energy is kind of dominating this period, perhaps this can bring some sort of realistic or practical energy to the themes mentioned throughout this article and can also be tied into surprises and shakeups as mentioned above. Or alternatively, we may experience these energies manifest in separate ways.

Venus is also moving towards an opposition with Uranus which is activated at this Full Moon but could play out more strongly as we get closer to October 31st. The Uranus energies mentioned in the first paragraph of this section could affect Venus matters in either a challenging or exciting way. However, keep in mind that any new relationships or aesthetic undertakings maybe be short-lived, unstable, or be faced with surprises. These things can be sudden but not stable. We also need to be careful of being too impulsive with spending resources and there is also a higher risk of loss if we are not careful.

Full Moon Square The Lunar Nodes Which Are Changing Signs Soon

This Full Moon is in a tight square with Lunar Nodes which marks the halfway point between the last series of eclipses this past summer and the next series of eclipses in January. The Lunar Nodes are karmic points in astrology and considering that this lunation is aligned with Uranus with Taurus’ ruler Venus in retrograde motion, this Full Moon is very significant which could mark a turning point or significant changes for many people.

It is possible that the energies of the summers previous eclipses and retrogrades may be activated during this time as well which depends on how those eclipses interacted with your natal astrology chart.

The Lunar nodes will be changing signs on November 6th/7th just before the next New Moon. They have been in the Leo-Aquarius axis since May 2017 and will be going into the Cancer-Capricorn axis for the following 18 months. I will cover this more in my next article, however, this factor also signifies a shifting of energies along with Jupiter changing signs shortly after this, and Uranus also retrograding back into Aries soon.

Mercury Conjunct Jupiter In Scorpio, Both Trine Chiron

Jupiter is in a trine with Chiron which is exact on November 1st and still plays out in the week following. This can be a great energy for learning, healing, and acquiring some sort of holistic awareness. We can learn and understand our wounds, blockages, and fears better to help us overcome or transform them into something more positive.

Mercury is moving towards this configuration and will be aligned with Jupiter exactly on October 28th/29th. This can help us to be more broad-minded and see the big picture. Communications can be growth-oriented, educational, expansive, and fun. However, we can also be scattered minded and more easily overlook mundane details.

With this conjunction happening in Scorpio, it can also be deep, psychological, and connected to looking at things that are hidden or beneath the surface. In some cases, this can be a great energy for transactions and financial matters depending on how it is interacting with your chart. Short trips or travel plans may also play out at this time.

Things To Consider During This Period

What has been coming for you recently regarding your relationships or how you approach your relationships, either socially or romantically? Are you experiencing a shift in your values or a conflict between personal and shared values? Or perhaps this is connected resources, finances, and worth? Have you been having any breakthroughs, and if so, how should you proceed based on that? Do you feel like you need to liberate yourself from a restricting situation?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up during this period, 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 October 24th at 4:45pm Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

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!.
