In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Many are claiming that under the guise of the coronavirus lockdown, an alliance is preparing to arrest deep state players and that we will see 3 - 10 days of darkness. This narrative does not seem to be truly empowering humanity.

  • Reflect On:

    Do you truly resonate with these predictions? Is this what will bring about a world where we thrive? Or is this perhaps still focused on blaming others without looking at the role wee play in why our world is the way it is?

A few weeks ago, a great deal of strong and widely shared predictions began to once again surface that the mass arrest of the Deep State and it’s players is going to occur under the guise of this coronavirus lockdown. Specifically, people claim we are going to see full internet outages for 3 – 10 days, where the mass arrest of these high profile figures will be carried out by the US military in April 2020. Immediately when I heard these predictions once again, I felt within myself that this is the moment, this is when the focus on these decade long predictions may finally come to an end and we can begin doing the ‘real work.’ I felt this because I truly don’t feel this is going to occur.

Now I want to be clear, it’s not that I feel no big name political official will be arrested from now until the end of time or anything of that nature, I simply just do not feel that this idea that the deep state will be defeated and a solar flash will evolve everyone’s consciousness is what is going to move humanity forward to a world where we truly thrive. To me, this is a narrative built out of the idea that we can’t possibly do this ourselves, so someone or something has to do it for us. The key missing ingredient here is: there is no learned self-empowerment.

As a quick note for those who are curious, in the context of this piece and what my research has led me to over the years is that the deep state or shadow government is essentially groups of unelected individuals who own and control politicians and governments. It’s tough to express how entirely these groups function and who exactly makes them up, which is a much deeper conversation, but the sense that there are forces behind government that influence government should is the key aspect to keep in mind. More on that here.

For the last 3 years, perhaps millions have hung on to the words of Q, an alleged insider connected to Trump and an alliance of ‘good guys’ that provides intel drops on 4chan and 8chan boards. Qanons work to decipher these drops and link them to current events to explore what they really mean and what might be happening next in the ‘battle against the deep state.’ The interesting part is, most of what Q posts about are in fact real events, and are in fact helping people awaken to the reality of the deep state. The challenge is, many analysts are creating narratives that may not be accurate, yet they think they are, and the drops of information could easily be posted by anyone who is already well researched into alternative ideas about how the world functions.

Does that make this false? Shouldn’t pay attention? No, the idea of exploring this and asking questions is fine, but attaching to it and making assertions is where the issue arises. Still, for many, there is an addictive-like quality to the Q drops as the narrative has presented the age old idea that a saviour figure is coming to save America, and then the world, and these people have it all taken care of. Now, it’s fair to say Q is looking to unite people, encouraging them to question and do their research, but the ambiguity of the drops can return almost any narrative you like if you really want to. Thus, many people, not all, sit back, fit the drops into their existing narrative, grab their popcorn and watch. They often believe that the issues and challenges of our world stem solely from the systems and infrastructures we live with, the people who run them, and not the state of human beings and human consciousness. How we think, how we feel, how we relate to one another and our planet, as well as the programs in our minds that create our world through actions- these apparently, are not important.

I also find that the primary criticism being spoken about when it comes to Q is whether or not it’s real, and in that context, the proof is whether or not it’s connected to Trump. But why are we not asking the question as to whether or not this could in fact be connected to Trump, and that it’s merely a propaganda arm of that campaign to engage ‘free thinkers’ into sitting still as this plan is carried out? Or perhaps not questioning whether this is another group looking to gain the control powerful leople have right now? I’m not trying to present a all negative outlook, I’m trying to get us to look past the classic good guys vs bad guys narrative for a moment, and see what else might be playing out here.

My goal here isn’t to discuss who’s right and who’s wrong, I feel that is yet again an addictive path that doesn’t always lead to greater peace and potential. Instead, my intention is to bring people together and encourage us to look at consciousness and our state of being as the driver of what will bring about actionable change.

The formula to my work has always been: look at current events to help understand the consciousness and state of thinking that is creating our world via our actions. From there, we can understand why we not only must shift our physical world, but also our ways of thinking and being so we can create a world that aligns with a new state of being/consciousness. Within that state of being, we take different actions that are founded in a different story, not the same old one. By exploring current events, we can see more clearly that we are at a time where we must wake up from the illusion we have chosen to accept about ‘what life is’ so we can expand our mind to possibility once again.

That said, as we explore this today, remember to observe where your narrative might be holding you back from reflecting on the deeper aspects of what opportunity we have here to truly change the way we think and create in our world.

The Saviour Complex

Within the Q narrative many people are building, (I.e. this isn’t what Q says but what people are creating themselves) Trump is the figure that is helping to bring this Great Awakening about with the backing of his military and intel connections. He challenges parts, not all, of an old regime that was very totalitarian in its approach. We have reported on the fact that there seems to be a deep shake-up of the old guard. He is clearly a threat to some powerful people, but is he and his connections the threat that will completely end their position of power? Is he someone about to bring about a world we truly know is possible in our hearts? Or is he simply a new leader that may do much of the very same stuff the ‘old guard’ did as he and who he works with continue to gain more power? In a sense how are we so sure he’s actually ‘benevolent’ like so many claim?

I’m not going to speculate too much as to how and why these predictive narratives get passed around so much on the internet and so forth, I feel ‘insiders’ can be passing ‘false intel’ to prominent voices in the alternative news space and they spread it… it can literally be that simple. But perhaps the more important aspect of this I want to bring forth is: what state of thinking, being and consciousness encourages us to put all our faith into these ideas? An idea that someone is coming to save us? Are we truly feeling empowered? Are we stuck on the idea of defeating an enemy? Where does that story come from? Does it lead us to neutrality, or are we still in the paradigm of polarity?

This idea of the positive people vs the negative people is the story humanity seems trapped in. To explain why this is a ‘trap’, let’s look a little deeper. Let’s say the deep state is removed, what do you want your world to look like? What does that world feel like? What state of thinking and being will you be envisioning and creating that world from? What are the features of this world? Have you thought about this? Is it informed by the ideas and programming you have learned to accept all these years? How much of it truly comes from your heart and own creativity vs what modern society has told you? Can we truly blame our inability to lovingly connect with fellow humans and create an incredible world solely on the deep state? Or is it something that is actually in our control, but we don’t do much about?

How about if these arrests do happen, what then? Who do we listen to when it comes to who creates and shifts our world? Do we wait for the alliance to tell us what to do? Have we learned a sense of empowerment through this process? Are we thinking that our empowerment will come from someone else giving it to us?

Herein lies the missing ingredient to this entire narrative that I feel is the powerful key to the change we all know is possible deep down inside. Regardless of whether we wish to believe in any of these predictions and narratives that have been forecasted for over 11 years, if self-empowerment, self-responsibility and a shift in consciousness is what will change this world, these arrests are completely unnecessary, and perhaps it’s time to explore our choices again. Instead of sitting back, writing articles, social media posts and watching youtube videos about it, what if we focused within and began to explore who we truly are, what thoughts, programs, belief systems and ideas make up how our thinking and consciousness create this world?

Would this not be more powerful and empowering than someone simply doing the work for us to save the world?

What we begin to realize is, it doesn’t matter if this Q narrative being built is in fact true or false, or whether these events will or will not happen. The strict focus on it is not letting us see the truth as to what we really must do – shift our consciousness and way of thinking and seeing ourselves and our world. Because the Q narrative often pulls people away from that, one can begin to explore whether or not Q is actually a well designed distraction to suppress humanity from becoming self-empowered.

A note before we continue, some have also suggested that extraterrestrials are taking care of these arrests, in this, I would ask people reflect as to whether or not this is the same saviour like narrative.

Reflection of Consciousness

What I have been observing for the past 2 years is a power struggle within the deep state. Imagine the mafia families of New York and the wars they have amongst one another when one family, or two, decide they want to go after the family that has been in power for quite some time. All hell breaks loose. Within the deep state, I have been feeling as though Trump and the group he is the public face for is simply warring with another group within the deep state, a power struggle of multiple groups. This is not a good guys vs bad guys, alliance vs the bad guys etc. It’s simply a power struggle within multiple factions of powerful people. Just like organized crime.

What’s interesting about this is that typically the deep state has been very united in their work to maintain power and control over billions of people in the world. Don’t think a small group of people can control billions? What about the fact that a tiny group of people just put everyone on lockdown in their homes for this pandemic? They absolutely can control mass perception and mass action, but we have to agree, we have to actually listen and give away our power. And for centuries we have.

Back to the deep state, their unity has been their strength, but one thing people have done is they have dehumanized those in positions of power. Somehow seeing them as something magical, something unattainable, something we can’t relate to. And in that, we don’t feel they are part of this dance we’re having together on this planet as humans. The sense is they have ultimate power, are not affected by anything and in no way would be experiencing some of the similar thought and emotional based struggles the average person deals with. This way of thinking comes from the simple process of dehumanization. It represents disconnection. After all, isn’t the story of disconnection the overwhelming paradigm of our world today? Whether you choose to blame the deep state or not for that, look at your everyday life and how you act, do you not make choices and actions that come from a state of disconnection from others? I’m sure we all will find examples of that until we have shifted our state of being, and that’s just the point, we all share this planet and are connected to the same collective consciousness – deep state included. And so the underlying consciousness that drives them, also drives the masses. We are all humanity.

So what does this mean in relation to how the deep state is unravelling? Their lack of unity, perhaps war that they are experiencing,  resembles the same disconnection we often experience in our society. Instead of it just happening in ‘societal culture,’ it’s also happening to the most powerful, people who have long been unified. This level of polarity and disconnection is on display for all to see as a mirror that reflects back saying, see what this looks like? I mean, think of how absurd news and politics has become over the few years? You can take one route and blame it on Trump, or you explore the idea that the level of immaturity, identity politics and insanity that has ensued is simply one of an adolescent state of thinking and consciousness that pits us against one another over petty issues. What more do we need to see to begin realizing that the change that is needed here is one of the basic foundation of who we are? The way we think, relate to this world, and each other etc.

When you witness all the clashes, does it not give you a chance to ask: Do you see what this feels like? Is this the choice you still want to make? The world you wish to live in? Is this all humanity is capable of? Is it time for a new approach? Is what I’m partaking in with polarity and identity politics making things peaceful or more intense?

Our Opportunity

Will these events happen? Time will tell, but if they don’t, just like with past predictions, those who choose the path of sticking to these narratives will find an excuse as to why this didn’t happen in April, and may push the prediction out a few months. While others may say it happened behind the scenes and we just won’t find out. Either way, it’s time to do the inner work.

In case I wasn’t clear, it doesn’t overly matter whether arrests happen one day or not, even if they were to, I believe they would happen at a time where humanity’s consciousness was at a point where upon the ‘removal’ of such a deep state, we would already be empowered within enough to be peaceful, unite, come together, and create our world in a way that truly resembles something incredible.

But to be honest with how I feel, if humanity was truly individually empowered, aware of who we truly are and the connectedness to all that we truly have, we would simply walk away from the game the deep state is playing and they would have no power. we GIVE them their power, putting them in jail doesn’t remove the consciousness within humans that will suddenly GIVE power to a new set of leaders.

This is less about swapping one set of leaders for better leaders, and about a shift in human consciousness that opens us up to who we truly are and what we are truly capable of. It’s a change in how we think, feel, relate to our world, and relate to each other. When we shift the way we think and shift our state of being, that informs a new way of creating within our physical world. THIS is what this shift is about. Does that happen with an addictive focus on the mass arrests? That’s a question for you to explore.

Our opportunity here, especially as we have a major interruption in what we call ‘normal life’, is to slow life down, and truly begin asking who we truly are and what type of world we want to create. Exploring that is possibly the most powerful and impactful thing we can truly do right now.

A New Media Approach For Improved Sense-Making Through Physiological Coherence

CE Staff Writer 8 minute read

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

The simple exercise you were just introduced to is designed to help create a physiological heart brain connection that has been shown to improve memory, learning, problem-solving and discernment.

Since 2009, Collective Evolution has been committed to forging a radically new approach to media and the discussion of current events. Over the years scientific research has come to support the approach we have been taking to help improve the way people consume and synthesize information in order to make meaningful choices in their lives and in society.

Since part of our mission at CE is to observe what is happening in our world from a more neutral point of view, asking what about us and our current human story creates our world, society, ideas, day to day choices, and policies to be the way they are, it was important to us to develop a style that encourages people to be in a state of mind and being where they’re more open to exploring new ideas without bias, cognitive distortions, and immediate resistance.

This discussion is worthy of consideration as most platforms either focus on simple ‘feel good’ or ‘well being’ based content, or focus on news from a purely journalistic sense, often with a political bias. Since our content focus is on both personal transformation and news/current events from a new approach, we have chosen to actually measure whether or not people are having a more positive experience consuming current event information. A recent research survey that will be publicized in March 2021 will show the positive results of CEs approach on audiences well being, emotional state, and development of critical thinking over the 12 years CE has been doing this work.

Coherence & Optimal Function

Decades of research shows that our hearts send more information to our brains than our brains send to our hearts. When our body’s heart is beating in what is called an ‘incoherent rhythm’, it sends a message to our brains and nervous system that produces suboptimal function that leads to a reduction in our ability to learn, make effective decisions, problem-solve, critically think, and self regulate our emotions.

When our heart is beating in a coherent rhythm, it sends coherent signals to the brain and nervous system that then brings each of these systems into synchronization physiologically. The result is opposite of that of incoherent signals. Research shows an improvement in our ability to think clearly, navigate information, make decisions, remember things, and communicate. All of this can come from as little as 60 – 90 seconds of practices like the one we place at the top of each of our articles. Over time, these practices also helps to build self-awareness which helps us see our own bias’ more clearly.

Further research has shown that a connection between thoughtful breathing and the production of a compound in the cerebrum called noradrenaline. This compound goes about as a “mind compost” that is delivered when we are feeling tested, inquisitive, or centered.

Our Unique & Research Backed Style

At CE we have found that the pathway to meaningful and sustainable change in our lives and society comes from being able to self-regulate our emotions, understand and change our habits and patterns, and also from learning how to navigate information in our world in such a way that allows us to carry our personal transformation into the realm of societal change.

In other words, sometimes people can have a spiritual practice or work on personal transformation, but don’t often apply their transformation to questioning or re-imagining things like current events, society, or politics. We are at a critical time in humanity’s history where faith in existing institutions is deteriorating rapidly, typically based on a right intuition people have that these institutions don’t work in their favor. We must begin exploring why our world is in need of change, and at the same time be able to shift our consciousness and thinking enough that we can make societal changes from a new way of thinking and being.

In 2009, we chose to focus our journalistic, video and education content in alignment with these findings. Focusing on a sense of ease, curiosity, and playfulness in our style. We don’t intend on trying to convince people to believe what we are reporting on, instead we encourage them to openly explore and question. This has had a dramatic affect on how people feel when consuming our content, and how they understand what we’re producing.

Commonly reported feedback from our audience includes things like feeling more grounded, hopeful, inspired, clear, and empowered to take action in their personal lives and society. Our readers also report that they tend not to feel a notion of ‘us vs. them’ and division that often occurs when consuming media about current events. Interestingly, readers have also commonly reported that after repeated consumption of our articles, videos, podcasts or courses, they notice a stark difference in how they feel when they consume content from more traditional alternative or mainstream media. This was also a huge discovery for us as it suggests that people’s relationship with other forms of alternative media can bring them new information but does not necessarily help their well being and sense of inspiration to act.

To us, all these suggest that our style not only informs but helps to create a noticeable shift in our audiences state of being. We don’t feel that it is us doing this for our reader, we feel the style and platform invites the reader to, by nature, build their self-awareness, practice emotional regulation, and think more clearly. Imagine how this will ripple out into the world as a result. Imagine how different conversations would be about current events if more had access to this approach.

Controversial Topics & Meaningful Change

At CE, we sometimes cover ‘controversial’ topics that as a society we are often resistant to explore, whether we have a spiritual practice or not. Many of our colleagues and friends in the personal transformation space have chosen not to explore some of these subjects much as they don’t quite align with their brand messaging or line of work, we respect and agree with their choices. However, we saw this as an important challenge to take on in our work as these ‘tough’ conversations need to be had, and we believe they can be done in a way that inspires change and well being.

Culture today is often uncomfortable with uncertainty and thus open inquiry and examination of new evidence has shut off around certain subjects. In our minds, this is causing a very societally impactful sense-making crisis in which we have become divided, distressed, emotional, and unclear as to what is actually going on around us. With this, we are quick to react and are often living on edge. As research shows, when we make decisions within our lives and society based on this state of being, they are often ineffective, suboptimal, and create further disharmony.

Our research has shown that 63% of our audience feels that CE helps them explore tough or controversial subjects while feeling less emotionally charged when compared to when others report on it, whether it’s a mainstream or alternative media source. This was a very inspiring statistic for us as we feel this makes a meaningful contribution towards shifting the way media is told to bring about a better society, without being limited to only focusing on ‘good news’ which has many limitations and, we feel, does not lead to deep societal change.

In our work we have found that combining personal transformation and emotional regulation with the openness to re-imagine society and explore new ideas, even when they are controversial, has created the greater sense of empowerment, clarity and well-being amongst our readers.

In short, our work has helped to provide a path to self-awareness, practice, and the skills to tackle information openly and coherently, thus readers are not triggered by disagreements and different perspectives, and are able to synthesize information into meaningful practice, solutions, and actions steps.

We’re at a critical time for developing a greater sense of self awareness, openness, and increased critical thinking so that we can better explore information without our emotions, biases, and pre-conceived notions getting in the way and shutting down our inquiry.

At Collective Evolution we feel that the journey to creating collective change is one founded upon personal transformation, what might be called a shift in consciousness, which is to say: we must generate a greater conscious awareness of ourselves, how we function, how to regulate our emotions, and think more clearly about what is going on around us. When we make this shift, our perception about life, society and what is possible dramatically shifts, and we begin to tap into a new story about humanity and what we want to create.

With this new story, coherence, and connection to self, we have found that people are inspired to work towards creating a greater sense of harmony and coherence in their lives and society as well. Effectively being able to see how new and emerging ideas can build a new foundation for society, instead of making small adjustments to our current society that’s built on an old and outdated story.

Researchers Outline Reality of Psychic Ability & Explore Whether It May ‘Run In The Family’

Avatar

Published

By

CE Staff Writer 8 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    It is commonly believed that psychic ability, like many mental and physical traits, runs in families. This suggests the presence of a genetic component. Researchers recently decided to search for one among people with psychic abilities.

  • Reflect On:

    Can special abilities, or psychic abilities be passed down? Are these abilities innate and lying dormant within all of us?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

‘Psychic ability’ comes in many different forms, from telepathy to clairvoyance or remote viewing, there are a number of phenomena that have been demonstrated under strict scientific controls that have yielded statistically significant and repeatable results. There are also multiple declassified documents that have been archived by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) via their electronic reading room, for example, pertaining to individuals with “special abilities” who are able to perform feats like telekinesis, or healing at a distance. You can access a few examples of that here, and here where I go more into depth.

The literature in this area, from peer-reviewed research all the way to examples from the within the defense departments of  multiple countries, is quite robust. It’s another subject seen as fringe and in-credible yet has more than enough evidence to for a reasonable person to deem these abilities as possible.

The researchers of a recent study published in EXPLORE titled “Genetics of psychic ability – A pilot case-control exome sequencing study” decided to search for some sort of genetic link among people with psychic abilities. They explain:

Many cognitive and perceptual abilities are associated with genetic factors. An open question is whether or not extraordinary “psychic” abilities such as mind-to-mind communication (in the vernacular, telepathy), knowledge of future events before they occur (precognition), and perception of hidden or remote events (clairvoyance), might also be associated with genetic factors. Evidence of the reality of such extraordinary abilities has been offered by multiple meta-analysis of experiments conducted over the past century, which demonstrate independent repeatability and robust statistical significance.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that extraordinary manifestations of these abilities run in families.. Few formal studies have evaluated the genetics of psychic abilities. Telepathy studies with identical and non-identical twins have found mixed evidence for greater concordance among identical versus nonidentical twins on telepathy task performanceOther case studies of families with data on up to four generations have been conducted. The pattern of familial transmission in second sighthas also been examined. This capacity is defined as “a special psychic ability believed to be a natural faculty of mind, regarded as an inborn gift by some andan affliction by others…Second sight implies that there are two forms of sight. One is normal sight and the other is the ability to have prophetic visions which occur spontaneously and arrarely directed at will.” Second sight is considered hereditary within the Scottish tradition. A formal pedigree analysis of second sight found an autosomal dominant pattern f inheritance. Other studies have evaluated the relationships between psychic abilities and the temporal lobe. However, to our knowledge, no similar investigations have been conducted using modern genetics techniques.

Interesting stuff, isn’t it? For the study, more than 3,000 candidates from around the world were selected and screened through two online surveys. This was done to locate people who claimed that they, as well as other family members, had some form of psychic ability. Eligible candidates were then selected as the final “psychic cases,” and then age, sex, and ethnicity-matched individuals, with no claims of psychic ability, were selected as the controls.

DNA from the saliva of the 23 participants were subjected to “whole-exome sequencing.” This is a test that looks at most of the genes within an individual. After this, two independent bioinformatics analyses were blindly applied to the sequenced data. This means the ones doing the analyses had no idea about the results the other lab was getting. They were completely separate.The analyses focused on protein-coding sequences and another one included some adjacent noncoding sequences.

According to the researchers:

Sequencing data were obtained for all samples, except for one in the control group that did not pass the quality controls and was not included in further analyses. After unblinding the datasets, none of the protein-coding sequences (i.e., exons) showed any variation that discriminated between cases and controls. However, a difference was observed in the intron (i.e., non-protein-coding region) adjacent to an exon in the TNRC18 gene (Trinucleotide Repeat-Containing Gene 18 Protein) on chromosome 7. This variation, an alteration of GG to GA, was found in 7 of 9 controls and was absent from all psychic cases.

You can access the full study here.

This means the study did not find any significant markers suggesting that these abilities may be genetic, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t. We already know through epigenetic studies that various traits are passed down to offspring, be it physical or even emotional. It is interesting that the study did however identify a noncoding variant that was largely restricted to non-psychic controls.

The most conservative interpretation of these results is that they result from random population sampling. However, when the results are considered in relation to other lines of evidence, the results are more provocative. Further research is justified to replicate and extend these findings.

Keep in mind, the researchers did test those who claimed to have psychic ability and overall they scored better on the tests than those who did not. There were many limitations to this study, and a big one was the size of the number of people used for the study.

Given the fact that, in the researchers experience and based on my research and examples that I’ve written about, these abilities are undoubtedly real, so looking for some sort of genetic component is quite reasonable and would have tremendous implications.

The researchers explain:

The identification of genes involved in psychic abilities has the potential to yield clues about their distribution within the general population and also their evolutionary origins. Such a finding may also have clinical value because it may help inform the development of pharmacological or environmental interventions to enhance or suppress such abilities, and clinical performance applications could be used. Enhancing these abilities could augment decision-making in many contexts, stimulate creativity in art and science, and improve diagnosis of disease, insofar as these faculties and activities may be partly dependent on, or enhanced by, psychic ability.

For example, perhaps telepathic communications could be developed for individuals living with communication disabilities, such as aphasia or cerebral palsy. On the other hand, suppressing these abilities might alleviate psychotic symptoms in some individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia, insofar as “disordered” psychic manifestations may be at risk factor in these individuals.

The Takeaway: Studies within the realm of parapsychology, which encompasses the study of various psychic abilities mentioned in this article, are abundant. Many show eye-opening repeatable results. Remote viewing is one of many great examples, showing “successful replication” by yielding “significant scientific evidence.” (source)

The methodology and the controls on these experiments are tighter than any other area of science where I’ve worked. Dr. Dr. Jessica Utts, former Chair of the Department of Statistics at the University of California, Irvine (source)

Again, there are also documented real world examples that defy belief linked earlier within this article, which brings me to my next point. Much of the science produced today, in my opinion, isn’t really following the scientific method. By that I mean discoveries that challenge what we once thought we knew, and ones that have paradigm shifting implications for humanity, are often ignored and unacknowledged. We see this all the time in the field of parapsychology.

“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)

Why do we fail to properly confront new concepts and ideas that don’t fit within the frame? Studies and results from these realms truly call into question what we think we know about the nature of reality and human potential. They will force humanity to open up to a broader view of reality that currently may not fit within the accepted framework of knowledge in the minds of many. But if there’s one thing that’s constant, it’s change.

Discoveries in this field, I believe, will lead to the realization that love, compassion, thoughts, emotions and service to others are key for humanity to move forward. It’s more than likely that this is the true nature of human beings, not competition and separation.

These must be our priority, we have to change the way we think here on planet Earth. If we continue to operate from a place of greed, ego, and have a lust for power, control and material wealth, which are cultural learnings, not necessarily our nature, we will not move forward to a thriving world. Non-material science has the potential to change the way we perceive the world, and ask the deeper questions like, why do we live the way we do when we can create a human experience where everybody can thrive? How can a race that is so intelligent and technologically advanced be so politically and morally corrupt?

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

We are having a New Moon in Aries during the later hours of April 11th in the Americas and on the 12th everywhere else in the world. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned throughout this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Scorpio on April 26th/27th.

Aries season began at the Equinox (on March 20th globally this year) as it always does, as per the framework of the Tropical Zodiac. Being the first of twelve signs, and initiator of a transitional season, it begins the Astrological New Year. However with this New Moon actually occurring in Aries as well, it will crank up the energies of this sign even more so in comparison to the previous weeks that were part of a lunar cycle initiated by a New Moon in Pisces.

Aries is the domain of self, independence, and individual needs. As a Cardinal Fire sign ruled by Mars, it is assertive, courageous, direct, pioneering, and leading. It is initiating, quick, bold, energetic, and warrior-like. Negatively, this energy can be inconsiderate, selfish,  hot tempered, combative, restless, impatient, aggressive, and overly competitive. Aries lacks thoroughness due to its quick forward energy.

New Moon Conjunct Mercury & Venus In Aries

This New Moon is close to both Mercury and Venus. This can reflect a period in which our social interactions and engagement with others can be more lively. Both Mercury and Aries have a busy moving type of energy and we may feel more active, physically and/or mentally, as a result.

The conjunction of both of these planets with this New Moon also means it is tied into cycles that each of those planets have with the Sun. Venus recently joined the Sun in the last week of March and it is now travelling ahead of it in zodiacal position.

In recent weeks this has been a time in which we experienced shifts, developments, endings, beginnings, or more clarity around Venus areas of friends, love, social dynamics, values, worth, or financial matters in some cases. This New Moon and the weeks following can continue this process, especially when it comes to beginnings or newer ways of expressing ourselves in these areas.

Mercury is now approaching the Sun as they will make their conjunction on April 18th/19th. At that time we may experience developments, which may be significant, connected to what has transpired during its previous retrograde in February and how things have unfolded since then. From there, these things may develop further with a better perception, or circumstances may indicate lack of sufficiency, not what was anticipated, or that something needs to change.

Planets In Aries Square Pluto & Sextile Mars Trine Jupiter

This New Moon, along with Venus and Mercury, are in a square with Pluto and sextile with Mars and Jupiter. Pluto combined with Aries and Mars energy can reflect a period of intensity. However, it can also play out as issues around power, control, manipulation, jealousy, insubordination, or subversion.  It can also be revealing, psychological, compulsive, transforming, and purging.

The sextile with Mars in Gemini adds to the lively, assertive, instinctual, and energetic expressions of Aries. The Aries’ planets sextile to Jupiter, which is also trine Mars, can be good for applying ourselves in a way that is expansive, optimistic, educational, philosophical, explorative, freedom seeking, or centered around beliefs. New doors may open up and it can even be lucky for some people.

Uranus square Saturn (mentioned here in a previous article) is still in the backdrop as it will be throughout the year. Although it’s not in one of its strong periods, themes of ‘freedom/rebellion/revolution being at odds restrictions/limitations/traditions are still playing out. This may get activated in different ways by this new lunar cycle and the Aries energy that has already been present over the previous weeks following the Astrological New Year.

Making Intentions & Things To Consider

How would you like to grow and expand and what do you need to change to get there? In what areas do you need to be more bold or courageous? What have your relationships shown you in recent weeks? What is important for your individuality? What are your personal needs? What do you stand for and should you be fighting for it? Do you need to be a leader in any aspects of your life? Are there any new things that you want to explore?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time. However, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment it will occur is 2:31am Universal Time on April 12th. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.
