Here's what my spiritual team "downloaded" into me:
It’s been awhile since I last posted and several of you have been wondering “What’s happened?” The simple answer: Busting my a--, heh heh.
As always, I am working on developing my mediumship abilities. Part of that work was taking some amazing training with internationally renowned medium Lisa Williams. The bestselling author and host of the former television show Life Among the Dead really put me back to square one with examining, redefining, and then re-igniting the mediumship flame. It started as a four-week online course complete with homework that really took me back to the nuts-and-bolts of communicating with the Other Side and how that communication takes place.
At the end of the four weeks, I and my fellow classmates from around the world (about 40 of us) all gathered together in Los Angeles for a full weekend intensive with Lisa. The finale of the course was doing two separate one-on-one readings for members of the general public who she had invited. Throughout the weekend, Lisa was taking notes on each of us – grading us like a proper instructor – and then had the general public grade us as well! Can you say “Pressure”? (Fortunately, I PASSED!)
To say the weekend was intense would be an understatement. First off, to be accepted into the course, we had to submit an application and hope our credentials as practicing mediums were enough to be accepted. When I arrived in L.A., I was excited, but when class officially got started – I was terrified! Here I was, sitting in a room filled with other practicing mediums who had already proven themselves simply through the application process and I was going to be graded by one of the top mediums in the business. I know I was not the only one feeling like a fish out of water, but there’s always a part of you that says “Really? Me? Do I really belong here?” As the weekend progressed, this fear diminished, but I have no shame in admitting – I had a couple panic attacks at the beginning!
By the time Sunday came and we were scheduled to do the readings with the public, everyone had bonded as a group and our initial fears had subsided. We all were going through the proverbial boot-camp together … and surviving.
Lisa was incredible – not only as an instructor, but as a down-to-earth human being in addition to being a medium. She understood and honored our fears and doubts (and moments of lunacy) that we all experience in doing this work, especially within the intensity of the environment we were training in.
Indeed, one of the great take-aways from that weekend was the realization that everyone – all 40 students and our instructor – never competed or felt that we needed to ultimately prove ourselves to one another. There wasn’t one of us that felt we had to “outdo” or “outperform” a fellow medium for the sake of our personal ego.
In the end, the course simply wasn’t another workshop, it was a literal journey of discovery. Lisa’s compassion and authenticity continues to carry forward in many different ways for each of her students -- and I am delighted to return to Los Angeles come October to get more training. I am also excited to see that many of my fellow mediums from this original class will be returning as well! It will be a grand family reunion!
Back here at home, I have taken what I’ve learned and acted on it – booking more public demonstrations and private home groups, with more to come in the next several months.
But … I am not done yet. I have also begun putting together the marketing and promotion for my next book The Afterlife Interviews, Volume I, due out this August. The book is the culmination of nearly 2 years of research where I conducted fourteen separate readings and asked the spirits who came through for my clients the same fifty-two questions about the nature of the Other Side. The result is a huge well-rounded portrait of what the afterlife is like from those who reside there. This has been such a huge project that it equally deserves a huge marketing and promotional effort, which is another reason why I have been so silent in my blog. The Afterlife Interviews is going to be nationwide (and potentially international), so it requires a lot of focus and attention leading up to its launch. All this right on the heels of my first book Your Magical Soul receiving a silver medal in the 2012 Nautilus Awards in the Science and Cosmology category (previous Nautilus winners include Gregg Braden, Caroline Myss, and Deepak Chopra) as well as being one out of three finalists for the Body/Mind/Spirit category for the Benjamin Franklin award.
Along with the continuation of the Explorers of Consciousness radio show and the NW Mediumship Association, other classes (and gasp) regular day-job, I am one busy cookie! And then on the heels of The Afterlife Interviews will be my first fiction novel, The Resurrection of Osiris. Whew! To make all of this happen, I have had to push “pause” on doing individual one-on-one readings and paranormal investigations. However, if people are interested in receiving a one-on-one reading, I am creating a waiting list which I will jump on as soon as time opens up.
So if you’ve been wondering why I’ve been silent in the blogosphere, this is it! Training, books, presentations … With more to come!
‘Til next time!
As many of you know, I am always on the look-out for stretching my senses. After all, I can only get better in my work as a medium by becoming more aware and being present with whatever might be floating around in the environment.
How do you do that, you might ask?
A fun little gadget from yester-year is actually playing a tremendous part. Remember those plasma balls that came out back in the 1980’s? They contain a coil which shoots arcs of electricity out to the globe’s surface. When you touch the ball, the arcs amp up and coalesce at the point where you touched the glass. What makes them interesting is that they shoot huge amounts of electromagnetic frequency beyond the globe’s casing – we discovered this while doing an experiment during a Washington State Ghost Society investigation. Using an EMF detector, we found that the energy of the plasma ball can be directed by someone touching the glass and then raising their other arm. In other words, a person can act as a conduit for the ball’s energy and “throw it” in various directions which the EMF detector is able to measure.
One evening while talking about this with WSGS president, Dave King, we decided to see how sensitive the human detector could be. We turned the ball on and hovered our hands over it. It was very easy to feel the pulsing of the field at just a few inches from the surface. Then we stepped back several feet and raised our hands toward the device. Slowly, we walked toward it. Amazingly, I was able to detect the field at a whopping 5 to 7 feet away!
Intrigued by these results, I went and bought one for myself to try at home.
First, I held my palms out, facing the plasma ball at a distance of about 12 feet away – then slowly walked toward it. This was all about being more sensitive to outside energy, so I paid really close attention to what I was feeling inside and outside my body. What ended up happening was that I felt a subtle tingling on my palms. It is so very slight, but noticeable. Then, as I get closer, I could feel “pressure” on my hands and my abdomen. By the time I was three feet away, the focus of the energy coursing through my body was so intense, my hands felt like they were being pricked by hundreds of needles. It was absolutely amazing!
In continuing to practice this exercise, I have extended my range of awareness with the ball’s energy another 2 to 3 feet, so now I can feel it at 10 or 11 feet away. I have also done the same experiment with the ball turned “off,” just to make sure I wasn’t messing with my own mind. Eyes opened or closed, with enough focus, I could feel that energy field at a great distance.
Will this help in my work as a medium? Only time will tell. But it does reveal that with enough awareness and focus, energy fields can be detected by the human organism – and what is Spirit if not another form of energy? Already they do affect my physical body in the course of a link. If I can become even more sensitive to their energy, I potentially can become even more aware of the detailed messages they wish to convey.
It’s all about becoming the best conduit I can be.
If you are interested in working on your own sensitivities to energy, I highly recommend the plasma ball. It demonstrates – once again – that energy can exist beyond what you see and that you can tune into it!
‘Til next time,
A couple of weeks ago I found myself shaking a fist and really giving my guides the third degree. I felt they had challenged me one too many times with a result I truly didn’t care for. Oftentimes, we don’t understand why our guides move us in certain directions or allow certain things to happen; but it is always in retrospect that we gain the perspective of truth about such enigmatic circumstances and then forgive, engrain the lesson, and move on. Part of that process for me a few weeks ago was to declare to my spiritual advisors that they were going to have to do something pretty extraordinary to convince me of their strength, love, and sincerity for what I had gone through. I didn’t tell them what they had to do, just that they needed to do something pretty impressive to convince me they really cared. (Yes, it was one of those dark times which tests your faith).
The answer came through the night of Development Circle, a few hours after I had made my demand. We were doing an exercise called “Transfiguration.” In this exercise, you pair up with a partner and stare at each other in extremely low light while opening up to spirit. The objective is that spirit will come over your partner and begin to change his or her facial features to where you can somewhat see the face of the spirit objectively. We were doing the exercise twice, and had already completed the first round with great success and were excited for the second session.
For about ten minutes, each of us sat with our partner in silence and just looked at the other’s face. One set of partners sat in a completely different room, as we have a member who uses Skype on the computer to participate in the circle, since she lives in Portland, Oregon.
Immediately, my partner appeared as one of my lead guides, who I have seen objectively on many occasions, the first time when I was 15-years-old. He appears as a medicine man from an aboriginal tribe, with face makeup and jewelry. His bright eyes gleamed back at me during the session, and he smiled widely, expressing his love and telling me clairaudiently how proud he was of my development. He expressed that it was okay for me to have been angry at what had happened earlier and had anticipated the outburst, and that the lesson was being learned (and truth be told, I had already been given insight to the lesson a day beforehand). Then my partner’s face darkened, but lit back up with the face of another one of my guides, with curly hair, high cheek bones, and British accent (again, clairaudient). I was surprised they had showed up to be the spirits my partner became.
The real shocker was when the session was over and we all got back together to share our experiences. I held off on revealing who I had seen – because everyone was talking about seeing the same aborigine male with the painted face! Even Penny, our member from Portland, mentioned seeing him during the session. Wow! My spirit guide really came through on my demands. He appeared to 7 out of 8 members of my Development Circle, all within the same round and across literally hundreds of miles. It was unmistakable and truly amazing.
Sometimes we might take our guides for granted, or are completely unaware of just how much they do care about us, and what they are willing to do to make themselves known. It was an incredible moment of humility and gratitude to realize the amount of energy, intent, and orchestration to make it all happen; to appear to each member at the same time, with one member being geographically far away – all to say “We are here, we love you, and are proud of you.”
I cannot tell you how many times my guides have proven themselves to me (and on occasion, to others as well) -- and not by doing simple things, but by doing stuff that is truly remarkable. It just goes to show that we are loved, cared for, and guided to truly realize what it is great in the universe and inside ourselves by incredible helpers who reside in the land of eternity, unbound by Time and Space. Their love is unlimited – especially after putting up with me for so many decades arguing and disagreeing with them. (The score to date in who wins the arguments: Jeffrey=0. Guides=10000. Go figure).
Never doubt your Spirit Guides. They won’t let you down and they do truly care about you.
Feel free to challenge them – Just be prepared for the response. It will oftentimes astound you.
‘Til next time,
(If you’re interested in meeting your own Spirit Guide and are also interested in mediumship, be sure to come to the next NW Mediumship Association gathering in April. See Events tab for details).
Spirit introduced me to platform work back in 2003. What is platform work, you ask? This is when the medium plucks people from the audience and gives them a reading. If you’ve seen John Edward or James Van Praagh do a “gallery”-style performance, that’s what it is. When I first began doing them, I was always terrified that nothing would happen. I would get panic attacks and worry that people would find me a fool. Fortunately, this ultimately wasn’t the case and excellent information did come through, but the more I did them, the more difficult they became, and I was doing them on a monthly basis. Finally, unwilling to take the anxiety attacks anymore and struggling to get information from the Other Side, I stepped down from platform demonstrations in 2007 and re-morphed my public services into private home settings, which didn’t necessarily have me connect with the deceased, but allowed me to simply be “psychic” (which is oftentimes easier than being mediumistic).
The new groups helped. I would still get anxious, but most of the time that anxiety would disappear after the first or second reading; and the crowd was considerably smaller. I continued to bring through messages from spirit, but it wasn’t as overwhelming, and I could jump out of being a medium and work strictly on a psychic level if I chose to.
But that’s what happens when you’re green.
For the last few years I have pounded the pavement in trying to develop, learn more, and define my mediumship. I have devoured scores of books on mediums and mediumship, as well as taken (finally) some actual courses which were able to give me much needed direction and explanation. This work has broken down a lot of barriers I didn’t know I had.
The main obstacle, of course, was my EGO. This has been the hardest to tackle, but looking back now on all the anxiety and stress before a service, this has been the culprit. When one worries about whether or not spirit will come through, what they are really worried about is looking foolish – which I was concerned about. Well, that isn’t looking out for spirit and spirit’s inspiration, that’s looking out for number one – the ego. “What if I’m wrong? What if I’m wrong? How will I look?” Yes, that is a natural thought, but if one clings to it as consistently as I did, then it becomes a HUGE distraction and disruption to the process of communicating with spirit. Even more so, if you’re also worried about how the sitter is going to respond to the information you bring through (“Will the information make me look like a fool”), that too is a distraction that will block the flow from spirit.
Pretty much what it all boiled down to wasn’t a lack of trust from spirit; it was more about how I was going to appear to my audience. It wasn’t until I finally started to let go of ME and simply watch out for what was being brought through did my readings really take off. Do I give stellar readings every time now? No, nobody ever does, but the quality of my readings and how I feel going into them has certainly changed.
Case in point: I did my first platform in over 5 years on February 4th at the Venus Moon in Renton. There was close to 40 people in the audience – the largest group to date (before then, my largest audience was 30). Before, when I had no real formal training and was “fending for myself” I would have been freaking out hours before the event started. But on this night, I was completely calm and relaxed. Not even that, I was excited! I knew, so long as I got out of my own way and gave my mind over to spirit, everything would be fine. And it was! I connected with 8 or 9 different people in the audience, with excellent information from spirit – including names, personal characteristics of the deceased, information surrounding how they passed, and much more, lasting for just over an hour in the demonstration. The only distraction I had was an ongoing fire or medical emergency, as ambulances and fire trucks were screaming by the building with sirens blaring. Nevertheless, I remained committed to being a vessel for spirit and spirit came through.
When it was over, a part of me felt a bit cheated. My mind was so used to viewing platform demonstrations as being stressful and frightening, yet that night it was the exact opposite. Part of me had been waiting for the sense of “work” which the spectre of fear used to bring, but it never came. I had zero fear, and spirit came through without problems. A member of my development circle who attended said I was “inspiring.” What a gift! (And she stood up and made a connection herself, which was equally a joy to witness!) I would love to have compared that demonstration with my last platform in ’07. I bet they would have been light-years apart in terms of quality and style.
So now I am committed to returning to the platform. Spirit has amazing messages to give and they are inspiring me to give them. I am always curious these days to hear what incredible details a person’s relative comes through with that is so unique and expressive that it screams “I’m really here!”
When it comes to doing the work of spirit, there is no room for the ego. As I heard a few years ago (and what has led me on my quest to dissolving it), the word EGO stands for Edging God Out. That is so right. As a medium, I am here to serve spirit, not myself. As a medium, spirit’s messages serve the client, and I can’t be the judge of what that information is, I can only deliver it with as much compassion and love as I can.
There are a lot of messages out there. I look forward to bringing them to the platform as I continue my work and my development throughout the year.
Hope to see you there!
So what does it mean to “raise your vibration” and “expand your aura”? It’s something we hear about a lot when it comes to psychic and mediumship development; yet when you ask people “how do you do it”, you really don’t get a straight answer.
I had a friend ask me this question and few weeks ago. After I pondered the response, I wrote it down and said to myself: Other people have got to be asking this same question. So I decided to blog about it!
Okay … Here goes:
Believe it or not, the process of raising vibration and expanding the aura is a natural by-product of meditation. Our left-brains like to parcel things out into bite-size bits so we can look at them individually, therefore it is easy to perceive them as separate events when they are the natural growth process of letting go and quieting the mind and body.
Typically, we think of meditation as slowing down and being still, which is counterintuitive to “speeding up and raising vibration and expansion.” In terms of shutting off the monkey mind, the idea of slowing down and being quiet is an accurate description. But what happens when we shut down the monkey mind is that it allows the rest of our consciousness to be free.
When we run around in our heads with the left-brain, we actually keep our auras very close to our body; in other words, we are wrapped up in ourselves because we are so busy processing in our heads. At that point, we don’t acknowledge much beyond our beings because that’s not where our focus is. But when we let go of the chattering head, it allows our consciousness to become more receptive, and it is at that moment – when we begin to open up – that the aura starts to expand. Of course, a little intention helps, but letting go and quieting the chattering mind releases the restraints on the aura and it will begin to grow naturally. This is why “meditation” and “sitting for spirit” (two phrases which really mean the same thing, at least to me) is so important in wanting to become more attuned and aware.
The other aspect of this – raising vibration – happens in a similar fashion. Now, you might think that in raising vibration you should feel something vastly different from your “normal” vibration -- like you’re sitting there and all of a sudden you should feel like you have a rocket pack strapped to your back. Sorry to say, this doesn’t happen. But when you reach a good meditative state and with enough awareness, you can actually feel a rapid pulsation go up and down the core of your body through your chakras that is about double the speed of your heart rate, and you will also notice your breathing is smooth and equal, in terms of time spent inhaling and time spent exhaling. This pulsation, now that I think about it, does extend to your skin, too, as I have felt a buzzing sensation across my epidermis during these moments of awareness.
However, if you don’t feel this rapid pulsation, that doesn’t mean you haven’t raised your vibration, it just means that you haven’t got an awareness of it just yet. That may take time. You might not have fine-tuned your sensitivity of discerning the different energies/feelings surrounding the body yet. That’s okay. With enough practice, you’ll get there. And you won’t feel it every time you meditate, but you will from time-to-time. If, after sitting in meditation, you feel more open, relaxed, and as if you are no longer confined to the sense of a “box around your being,” then you have raised your vibration. In changing your state from being “frenetic, chatty, running around in a maze” to being “relaxed, open, peaceful, freeing” you have changed your vibration. Changing your state of mind and feeling of your body is a changing of vibration and frequency.
Sometimes, it can be as simple as thinking more positive, uplifting thoughts. If those thoughts create more positive feelings, then you have raised your vibration (and most likely expanded your aura, too).
And, of course, you can go in with intent while meditating: “Lift higher, lift higher, lift higher” or “raise vibration, raise vibration, raise vibration.” Once you make the intent, you have to then let go and let it happen – don’t chase after it like you’re chasing a butterfly. That just confounds things. Let it happen naturally, because it really does happen naturally on its own. Like I said, if you feel lighter and more freer after the meditation, you have successfully raised your vibration. If you feel you have more energy after meditation, you have raised your vibration. If you feel more balanced instead of lopsided and heavy, you have raised your vibration.
Also, don’t think that the level of vibration of which you are wishing to reach is so distant from your normal vibration; it’s not like you are traversing a football field – it is subtle and slight. The trick is learning to know when you are in it and becoming sensitive to the information that gets transmitted in that zone. It’s really not a huge gap. Plus, when you reach that state, that doesn’t necessarily mean an individual spirit communicator is going to step right in and start delivering information. You can raise vibration and be in the space of spirit – you can feel their presence, you know they are there – but you may not get anything more. That’s fine. A spirit communicator may not wish to communicate, for they feel there is really nothing of great importance to convey at the moment. What’s important is that you are in the space. When the time is right and when a message is necessary to give, a communicator will come in. And with practice, you will be able to “fine-tune” your vibration – stay in it with consistency – and raise it even a little higher. This, so we all believe, will allow either more or “different” information to come from spirit.
The trick is shutting off the left-brain and your ego because the two LOVE to run things; they love to control, identify, and create definition based on your personal beliefs and biases. Yes, we must identify the information which comes to us through the vibration and aura, but our left-brains and egos also try to imbue stuff with our own personal meaning. As mediums, it’s not our job to determine what something means; our job is simply to deliver the information as we get it. We don’t always have to understand it – because 9 times out of 10, we’ll get the meaning wrong when the recipient knows exactly what is being transmitted. Admittedly, I think this is the hardest part of development. I’ve heard and learned to categorize the EGO as “(E)dging (G)od (O)ut.” We must learn to ignore our personal biases and the brain’s need to label things and just pay attention to what is popping into our consciousness from spirit and then deliver only that. Spirit will, if they can, imbue the impressions with their own meaning so you don’t have to. But we cannot judge what they are giving us; we can only deliver it to the recipient.
Have a great week!
For decades we have been hearing this talk of a paradigm shift in consciousness; that a big sweeping revolution is going to cross the globe and affect everybody energetically, consciously, spiritually – at least that’s how I have interpreted this conversation – and people will all of a sudden wake up, as if night has suddenly turned into day. And with the onset of the Mayan “prophecy” this year, this notion has become closely wedded with the December 21st date and become the focal point for when this shift will occur. Unfortunately, I think those people who are holding out on this event are going to wake up on December 22nd very disappointed.
On a planet with 7 billion people, 7 billion minds, and 7 billion different points of view (and growing), in order for this type of paradigm shift to occur, it would require something so incredibly powerful and miraculous, it would be beyond our comprehension. Judging by our march through history as a species, shifts in consciousness do not happen overnight – they are quite gradual and filled with plenty of upheaval. The closest example that we can relate to is the Renaissance, and in no way did that shift from ideology-based wisdom to free thinking and science occur within the course of a single generation, it took several generations with a backdrop of events stretching back millenniums -- and it still hasn’t shifted the whole planet even today. There are still large numbers of people who have entangled themselves with archaic old-world belief systems and dogma; they are firmly entrenched in them; and as the planet becomes more and more populated, the larger those populations will also become – the more people you have to deal with.
We have this idea that a paradigm shift is going to radically change how people will think, act, and at last, world-peace will prevail (or at least be closer at hand). It’s a beautiful thought, until we realize mass consciousness cannot make that leap overnight – with a real good possibility that it will NEVER make a decisive shift in that direction for the very reason of why people incarnate on earth in the first place: to be the fullest expression of universal consciousness and LEARN LESSONS to become all that we can be, as a being of consciousness. Think about what it would be like if we all started to think and believe in the same way, it would become far too limiting for people’s paths and inhibit their free god-given ability to learn the lessons they have chosen to incarnate to learn in the fashion they feel they need to learn them. Some people NEED DRAMA in order to learn their lessons. That’s their choice. In other words, a world without all the different points-of-view which we currently have may actually be a world with Less Creative Expression for a soul to learn in. If mass consciousness were to all of a sudden align itself in one particular direction like atoms in a laser beam, think how that would actually inhibit spiritual growth and expression versus having all of these other oftentimes contradictory points-of-view.
Ultimately, what we are hoping for in a paradigm shift is a change in thinking because we believe it will lead to a change in behaviors – to be more loving rather than destructive and divisive. But we all know, we cannot make other people think differently … We can’t go into a person’s mind and switch their gears for them. We can only inspire them. They have to make that mental consciousness shift themselves – we call it Free Will. We CAN force them to change behavior through intimidation – we see that all the time – but even then, though behavior might be different, the thoughts might still be the same old thoughts someone has always had. We cannot change how other people think, we can only change how WE think and WE behave. In this sense, the only kind of paradigm shift that will occur will not come from something outside people’s consciousness sweeping in and giving them a huge all-of-a-sudden “aha” moment, it will be something they experience and come up with inside themselves. The only way a true paradigm shift will occur is if we can apply the wisdom of Gandhi: Be the change you want to see in the world.
About the only outside influence that could quickly change the way we treat each other on planet earth would be something catastrophic – something that forces us to unite. I’m thinking a planet-destroying asteroid, alien invasion, or pandemic plague.
Outside of that, spirit, consciousness, needs the varying viewpoints and philosophies in order to allow the growth of souls to become all that is possible. Our challenge is to learn to embrace these differences with unconditional love and understand that everything in the universe is not here by chance or coincidence; the universe works with mathematical precision, therefore, what we see in today’s world is supposed to be happening. If we believe that the main goal or lesson in life is to learn how to love, how can we learn that lesson? Only by encountering those things which will challenge us to find that kernel, that gem, and expand from it. That is going to require these challenges we face. We may not agree with what others may think and are doing, but that is because that is not our path, it is theirs, and they are simply learning their individual lessons and becoming all that the nature of spirit can be from that unique perspective. And, yes, we often cross the line in trying to force a shift upon one another to move in different directions – this is the game-plan in learning our life-lessons. You can’t learn them from sitting on a couch; you have to engage.
My prediction for the future: We will continue to evolve. Evolution is a constant. But it occurs in baby-steps. I don’t think anything is going to come sweeping in and kick that evolution into overdrive in such a way that we go from 10 mph to 120, in terms of consciousness expansion across the globe. Can we reach universal peace and brotherhood on earth? Yes, but it won’t come easily nor swiftly.
Some say the reason there are so many people on the earth at this time is because of this massive, quick, evolutionary leap. I don’t. I think it’s because we have made it a biological imperative to have a family, as it has been for millennia, and so we consciously and spiritually ask and welcome more souls to come in, in order to fulfill this imperative and “standard life design.” Standard life design: get married and have children. It has nothing to do with paradigm shifting consciousness. Especially when it appears everything is quite unorganized and chaotic. Watching the news, I don’t see a movement toward consciousness shifting any time soon. I see life engaging and going on as it has been for centuries. Riots are not new. Civil wars are not new. Overthrowing and trompling dictators is not new. Ghadafi could have been the reincarnated Louis XVI for all we know. We are doing the same things we have always done.
The notion of paradigm shifting into a new form of higher consciousness is a holdover from biblical times and Revelations – “We’re right on the cusp of it. The end is nigh!” They thought that back in the 900s at the turn of that millennium, then the late 16 & 1700s when Newton had an apple knock his noggin; they thought that back in the 1800s with the advent of materialist science; around the same time, the spiritualists were advocating it when the Fox Sisters became famous and parapsychology was birthed; they thought it again in the 1930s when ESP became all the rage thanks to J.B. Rhine’s scientific research; then again in the 60s with flower power; and in the 80s with the New Age movement; and when we switched the clocks 12 years ago. It’s always been with us. It’s a social, societal, mental habit, but not necessarily a realistic outcome to expect.
There are reasons why we engage in this habit … which I don’t have time to talk about here. Nevertheless, it does have to do with our recognition of our eternal consciousness and connection to all things and trying to grasp at that omnipotence within this current environment of time and space, multidimensionality, and multiple probabilities. It ain’t easy, folks … And you know what, we make it that way on purpose.
A paradigm shift will not occur TO other people without their choosing; it will occur only within the individual who desires it – and it requires no special date on the calendar to do so. So those that are espousing a paradigm shift will either experience one for themselves and not see it happen with their neighbor – because the neighbor is too caught up with paying the bills and seeing the kids off to school – or they will start to see their neighbor acting differently and will think “That’s weird. What’s up with them?” and not notice any abnormal changes within themselves. It won’t be this big switch from night to day without any form of conscious choice.
