The world is filled with diversity. How can we create a Unity of Consciousness? Imagine the universe as an energetic grid made up of millions of energy lines interweaving and connecting all of humanity; this grid holds every thought we think, every word we say and every action we do.
We all know energy exists, maybe we can’t see it but we can feel it; if you’ve ever walked into a room when two people have just been fighting you feel like you could “cut the air with a knife.” That’s energy and an example of a low vibration. Different emotions hold higher or lower vibrations. Fear, hate, resentment, and anger being at the low end and unconditional love at the top. Unfortunately, many people hold a lot of fear, hatred, resentment, and anger whether they are consciously aware of it and actively expressing those emotions or holding them at an unconscious level – deeply embedded in their cellular structure, tied by the roots that have formed their belief system.
All the resentment, anger, and fear we learned from our dear parents, who learned it from their parents, who learned it from their parents, and so on. Of course, they were only doing the best they could with the information they had at the time. But now we have more awareness and understanding of how our thoughts and behaviour work. How potent and powerful a simple expression of love can be or equally as damaging a single look that could kill.
Imagine there’s an angry father who has three daughters. He says, “You are all worthless and you’ll never make anything of your lives.” The first daughter thinks, “Gosh, he’s right, I am worthless!” and so she has a pretty hard life with low self-esteem and doesn’t accomplish very much as well as never knowing happiness. The middle daughter thinks, “HA! Want to make a bet? I’ll show you!” and she rebels against her father’s opinions; creating her own self worth and goes out to become a brilliant doctor, marries a fabulously supportive and loving man and has three beautiful, smart children of her own. The third daughter thinks, “Oh gosh, he’s right. I am a loser, I’ll never amount to anything.”
Except that when she’s seven she has an amazing teacher, Mr. Schirmer, and he continually tells her, “Amy, you can be ANYTHING you want to be! You can DO anything you put your mind to, you are absolutely fantastic!” Naturally, she excels in school that year and feels wonderful in herself and believes him, “Yes, I can, I AM capable!”
So Amy goes off to have an interesting life. She does well at school but has to work hard for it. She has a series of unsuccessful relationships and when she finds Mr. Right, they have intense love, but boy is it ever-volatile! She has a long list of employment because she keeps getting fired for things that just ‘aren’t her fault.’ In fact, she believes nothing is her fault.
She’s doing the best she can and she’s a good person but just when everything’s going great the old self-sabotage Queen kicks in or “circumstances” change. She feels out of control and defensive. She is falling from the high. She is exhausted. She recognizes her pattern but feels trapped in it. Her partner doesn’t understand her, in fact, no one does. She feels alone. This is the emptiness many people feel inside, our own lack of self-love that’s hidden in our unconscious.
We have either buried our reality so far so as not to feel the pain of it or we don’t realize that life can and should be filled with joy. Many people don’t even know how to feel their feelings, we’ve become so good at total suppression. Knowing where the roots of your beliefs stem from helps us identify our triggers and teach ourselves to practice thinking in a more empowering and positive manner. In choosing to heal our past and become conscious creators instead of subconsciously reacting to other people’s stuff, we can change every aspect of our experience on every level of our lives. All it takes is a daily practice.
