Change The World By Raising Your Consciousness

The outer world is made from manifested thoughts and ideas held in your mind. These ideas are the foundation of consciousness, and the nature of these ideas gives consciousness its character.

Everything we create has a belief behind it, an idea once held in someone’s consciousness. Because consciousness is shared, it includes the thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, and sensitivities held by all people. Therefore, every condition, circumstance, or situation in the material world is the embodiment of humanity’s mental equivalent, whether it is war or peace. War is an expression of an idea held in consciousness by the human race. Human beings have always (it seems) believed in death, fear, lack, aggression, and pillaging, which is why there is war. If enough people in the world have war consciousness, then there will be world war. Again, it begins with the individual and the mental equivalent he or she holds.

If we want peace, we need to enter the consciousness of peace and affirm its truth.

Collectively, we all help to define consciousness by expressing our point of view. Everyone has input, good or bad, into how consciousness is defined. In the aggregate, we are a giant, mass projection of ideas into collective consciousness. That’s why, when a big portion of humanity thinks a certain way and this is translated into behaviors and actions, these energies become very powerful. When we do this together, ideas can become firmly seated in our collective consciousness.

Remember, you are a sum total of everything that is expressed in consciousness. Nasty language, slamming people on the Internet or in the magazine gossip columns, circulating ridiculously negative opinions, and incessant arguing are all dumped into consciousness along with all forms of violence. We will keep recycling this negative energy until people are ready to release it from their conscious awareness. Humanity has a long way to go, but we can do it.

The reason we don’t have peace on earth is that the idea of peace is not fully assimilated into mass consciousness. Since not enough people express peace, we cannot override the wave of unpeace yet. For peace to take hold in mass consciousness, it must begin with you. Contribute to world peace by holding the idea of peace in your own conscious awareness. Practice being a peacemaker. Think peace and demonstrate peace in relationships, speech, and writing, at home and at work. Start small. Make peace with those who irritate you or share a negative history. Try forgiveness. Call your mother. Overlook shortcomings you have perceived in another person. Have peaceful interactions with people and quit flipping drivers the bird when they pull in front of you on the freeway. Practicing peace, love, and lack of flipping is called practicing the presence of God. See God everywhere, in all things and people, despite appearances to the contrary, and be in sync with higher-level ideas. Practice being peace, and don’t just talk about it.

Today’s balancing act isn’t just juggling credit card debt, a mortgage, and aging parents. It is learning how to be consciously aware of who we are and striking a balance between being and becoming. Pick a job that makes a positive contribution to the community. Quit worrying about what anyone else thinks. Get to work on practicing being God. Let’s raise our consciousness and increase our level of self-awareness together. As we grow, we have the ability to experience the simplest things in life with great humor and happiness. When we focus on what is real, we can grow into a living expression of the Divine.

Season of Joy

At this joyous time of year, many people find sadness in the holiday season. How can we feel joyful when we are missing loved ones, have lost a job, or can’t pay our bills?

We all encounter tough times and no one is immune to feeling sad or blue.  Some situations are very challenging and many folks are encountering tough economic conditions, causing them to dread the holiday season. I’m finding that my “Journey to Joy” video lessons have encouraged people to rekindle joy.  Click here to watch Journey to Joy! Here are a few easy steps from the series that will lighten your heart center:

Make room in your life for joy

Allow yourself to experience what makes you feel sad. Acknowledge difficult times. Do you miss a loved one?  Did you lose your job? Go ahead and think about these things, and talk about them.  This is all part of the healing process. Even though these feelings seem to bring you down, give yourself permission to feel sad or grieve. It helps you move forward so you can enjoy what you experience in life today and not dwell in the past.

 

Live NOW

Make a commitment to being here now. Be fully present for all life has to offer. Dredging up fear, self-doubt, regret, worry, resentment, anger, and old emotions holds you prisoner in the past. In order to experience joy and improve your current situation accept what is in front of you and appreciate what you have today.  If you find yourself recycling old emotions, gently move your mind to the present. Replace these energies with those of love and gratitude. It’s how you anchor yourself in the here and now.

Think like a child

Children are fully seated in the present. Children with cancer are so inspirational because they find something to smile about, no matter the odds. Why? They live one day at a time.  They live for the moment because they cannot think past the next week or day. Each moment and every hour is a blessing.

Enjoy the simple things

When is the last time you relished a sip of coffee, listened to the sounds of nature, watched a funny movie with gusto – all without multi-tasking, talking on the cell phone or texting?  The Indian monks say we can never lead a joyful life unless we can enjoy simple acts wholeheartedly. Sit back and sink into a few uncomplicated moments.  You will be surprised how much energy it gives you. Be with an activity and be fully present, even if it is a conversation with a friend. Our society is addicted to the endorphin rush of peak experiences. Stop raising the bar on pleasure and get back to basics.

Find your Passion

It’s important to find an activity that brings you joy.  When I began ballroom dancing, it quickly became a passion for me.  Parents, and busy moms:  it could be cooking, singing, painting or anything that helps you grow! Joy is infectious to everyone around you. To increase your light, you need to do something for yourself.

When you are aware of your thinking, finding joy is possible, even during the holidays. Remember, as within, so without. If you are consciously aware of the light inside you, and seek to grow it, then you can create and attract joyful and positive conditions in your life.  It will be different for everyone, but the end result is the same: true joy!

Every Blessing,
