Welcome – It’s Time For a New Paradigm


Hello, and welcome to this blog. Here, you’ll find articles and discussions related to a new paradigm in human consciousness in understanding, and in this introductory writing, I’ll give my perspective on this paradigm.

On a lot of spiritual and alternative news blogs, you’ll hear talk about a ‘new paradigm’ – a standard of living that’s outside of the confines of our social norms.

A growing number of people are ready to move beyond our old, division-fueled ways and welcome a new way of life that integrates unity, harmony, and an understanding of our oneness, and this drives our continual discussion about the things we can do to bring our planet into the light and move beyond the written and unwritten social rules that keep us from acting on our greater potential.

A ‘new paradigm’ is essentially what the name suggests – a method of functioning that turns us away from things that have hurt our world in favor of a more harmonious and sustainable collective lifestyle.

People are striving to bring the new paradigm about with endless work that’s intended to inform and uplift humanity into a position of creating the planetary change we want to see, and the goal is for more and more people to start working for the greater development of our society as the entire world becomes aware.

We’re standing up to the forces who strive to keep us in the dark, and in doing so, we’re welcoming and anchoring a new social standard that treats every person equally, rather than catering to the few and leaving the rest to struggle to survive.

People who recognize that a large percentage of the planet has been left to deal with ridiculous circumstances that are caused by poverty are doing everything they can to address and fix the conditions most of humanity has been forced to live under, because they’re ready to start healing this massive and ongoing neglect.

We’re starting to understand that we are and have always been one consciousness, and we’re striving to awaken everyone else to this and myriad other important truths in an effort to fashion the manner in which we run our planet around a widespread understanding of our oneness.

Imagine a way of life rooted in peace, love, respect, and service. Imagine a world where division and the self-serving mindset have been replaced with the understanding that we’re one creator consciousness experiencing itself and, as a result, everyone works together to repair this planet and keep it in a healthy, stable condition.

A world where the ‘every man for himself’ mindset has been replaced with an immense collective drive to make sure everyone can get ahead in life. A world where everyone lives comfortably above the poverty line, because the wealth that’s been amassed by the few has been put back in the hands of the many where it’s always belonged.

A world where competition is replaced with the drive to work together in every way, and no person is forced to go without. This is what the new paradigm will entail, and it goes without saying that all of these amazing things can’t just happen on their own.

This appealing new paradigm can’t just manifest with the snap of a finger – we have to actively pursue it if we want to see it. As great as all of these ideas sound, I think they’re basically worthless if we don’t start taking real and solid action to bring them about.

One person can only do so much on their own, and when it comes down to it, all of humanity will need to be ready and willing to construct a new paradigm if we want to change anything. I could make predictions about what a new world will be like all day, but they mean little if effort isn’t made to achieve them.

Reading about a new paradigm is nice, but I have a feeling that working together to bring it about will be much nicer. Imagine the unity that’ll be bred from coming together and respecting our perceived ‘differences’ instead of bickering over them like children.

Imagine being able to work harmoniously with your neighbor, his neighbor, and everyone else who strives to act on the inspiration they feel to change the manner in which this planet has functioned. Imagine the satisfaction we’ll each feel when we lay our heads down at night with the knowledge that we’re completely transforming this planet on a widespread, collective level.

This can become much more than a fantasy that sounds nice – it can become our reality. Right here, right now. We simply have to be willing to take the steps that are needed to move from point A to point B. Point A is, of course, the paradigm we’re currently rooted in, and point B is the utopian paradigm we want to establish.

We have a lot of work to do to get to point B, but the sooner we start this work, the sooner we’ll reach our ultimate destination. A new paradigm is only the beginning, and once we’ve built the society of our dreams, we’ll branch out and explore new planets; new states of consciousness; new realms of understanding.

And we’ll do it all as a unit.

When we grasp just how close we are with one another and just how much we’re meant to work together, our drive to use our unity for good will be stronger than it’s ever been before. Most people still can’t even fathom the idea of working together, much less harmoniously building a new world, but this’ll change as we continue to get active.

Those of you who were led to this article must have some desire to change the planet or welcome a new way of life, and however much you might disagree with what I’m about to say, you can. You can start changing the world right now. Whether it’s easy or difficult, you can start taking the first steps to bring people together and transform our planet and society.

In my opinion, it’s essential for anyone who wants to see a new world to start doing anything and everything they can to bring it about. The more people who are working, the more our influence will spread, and every one of you who reads this can feel free to explore your passions and what you can do to raise consciousness and bring humanity into the light.

You can pursue whatever avenue works for you, and you’re encouraged to have fun with it – to be creative. One of the aspects of a new, spiritually rooted paradigm is a society of people who are able to follow their greatest creative passions, so feel free to pursue the creative ventures that work best for you.

It’s been said elsewhere that we’re creators by nature. Creating things and expressing ourselves is what we do. It’s one of our missions here on earth. As such, you can feel free to pursue creative ventures that excite you over ones that don’t.

Pursue something you enjoy with all of the enthusiasm you can muster up, and if it doesn’t seem to work for you after a while, pursue something else that will. Like I said, have fun with it. Challenge yourselves and really develop your creative, awareness-raising abilities, because they’re essential to our creation of the new paradigm we want to see.

If everyone passionately developed their abilities and challenged themselves in a way that’s intended to help raise consciousness, the planetary vibration would grow immensely.

Eventually, every person would be able to pursue their passions in the name of raising awareness and restoring the earth to the pristine condition it was once in, and nobody would hold themselves back by pursuing things that don’t fill them with the invigoration we’re all meant to feel.

Openhearted creativity would replace the dullness that currently permeates life on earth, and everyone would be excited to change this planet with creative efforts that they can really enjoy. This is the kind of life we’re all meant to live, in my opinion, but it can’t happen if we don’t make it happen.

We’re really only asked to pursue things we’ve always wanted to do in the name of the progression of humanity, and when you think about it, that doesn’t sound like a very tall order. You want me to do something I already enjoy doing anyway? Sounds great!

Given that we’re meant to enjoy whatever we do to bring humanity into the light, what’s stopping us from doing exactly that? You’re all encouraged to find the talent or craft you enjoy and use it to help awaken humanity, and it’s interesting to think that pursuing our passion is so important to humanity’s development and evolution.

Having fun in a way that utilizes our creative abilities and awakens others is all we’re tasked with doing, and eventually, our efforts in doing so will motivate the rest of the planet to take the steps needed to transform our society and enjoy ourselves doing it.

Let’s individually take these first steps now, fellow seekers, because the planet can’t change without us. We can’t enter a new paradigm if we don’t make an effort, but we’ll be able to enjoy the efforts we make and appreciate the social standard we’ll set for ourselves.

Needless to say, it’ll be very different from our current standard, and I, for one, can’t wait to do everything I can to bring it about. How do you feel about changing the planet? What are you passionate about doing to raise humanity’s awareness?

Feel free to leave a comment about your world-changing passions below, because an essential aspect of changing the planet is changing it as a community. The hope is for this blog to become a community where like-minded seekers can talk about the creation of a new world, and I sincerely appreciate your visit. Thanks for being a part of our new paradigm.

Keeping the Seven Chakras Healthy

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

I don’t claim to be an expert on the chakras, but I’ve learned a little bit about them. I decided to open up and see what tips I could receive about keeping them healthy, and the words you’ll read here are what resulted.

I’m sure most of you know about the seven chakras, and we’re believed to have even more chakras beyond the basic seven that’ll come online as we continue to raise our vibration.

Chakras are literal etheric energy centers that bring through and interpret the creative energy of the higher realms, and we unknowingly use the energy that comes through them to create/sustain our reality and keep our bodies physically healthy.

Keeping our chakras healthy is as important as keeping our physical bodies healthy, and as our collective vibration continues to rise, more people will become aware of the chakras and the necessity to treat them the way they’re meant to be treated. Continue reading

Cedella Marley: Positive Vibrations – 10.30.14

Positive Vibrations #8

Written by Cedella Marley, A Nice Time, October 30, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/otewrza

Life will often make you feel like you may break. But no one can protect you from that feeling, and confining yourself to solitude can also push you to a negative place. You have to surround yourself with those you love and those who inspire you. It is the reason you are here on earth, to love, feel and realize you are not alone.

One love…Cedella

Meaningful Music – Flobots: Rise

You’ll notice I’ve changed the name of this segment from Music With Meaning to Meaningful Music.

Wes: This song from conscious rap group ‘Flobots’ encourages us to do exactly what it’s title suggests: rise up and create a new world. We’re much more powerful as a collective than we realize, and if we get together and harness our collective potential, we can finally start building a new world.

This song encourages us to rise up and make the changes that need made, and only when we can unite will we change the world. Enjoy!

Wisdom With Wes: The Poison of Self-Enforced Guilt

Snapshot_20140731_2If we stray from our life paths by getting angry or doing something we know isn’t in alignment with the goals we’ve set, the worst thing we can do is descend into guilt. We don’t gain anything by making ourselves feel bad or guilty because we faltered, and we’ll benefit far more from picking ourselves back up and continuing on.

We won’t make any further progress if we’re racked with self-enforced guilt, but we can make a lot of potent progress if we keep our heads up and move forward – even when we falter. We’re here to learn, grow and make mistakes, and to internally punish ourselves for making them is to punish ourselves for doing what we came here to do – experience the lower vibrations.

Yes, a growing number of us are ready to anchor and express mastery, which entails no longer making mistakes, but we have to see that we’re going to falter along the way. This doesn’t make us ‘bad’ or render us incapable of traversing the spiritual path – it simply shows us that we have more work to do.

We can’t do this work if we’re too racked with guilt, so let’s empower ourselves with the understanding that everything we do and experience – good or bad – is ultimately necessary.

Do you choose to forgive yourself today?

Stay aware!

Archangel Gabriel via Marlene Swetlishoff: The Quality of Love Known as Revealment

gabrielArchangel Gabriel: The Quality of Love Known as Revealment, channeled by Marlene Swetlishoff, October 30, 2014, http://www.therainbowscribe.com | Thanks to Golden Age of Gaia.

Beloved One,

Let us have discourse on the quality of love known as revealment.

Each individual’s inner nature reveals powerful and persuasive truths that point to the presence of a greater spiritual reality within them, such as the inner world of spirit, of consciousness, of feelings and emotions, of the existence of the soul.

Each individual struggles towards perfection in their lives, ever searching for the one who represents the highest ideals of love, kindness, integrity, honesty, faithfulness, and beauty. Continue reading

Steve Beckow: Second Last Stop: Whidbey

Grants Pass 2014: Steve, Kathleen, Jay and Barb

Written by Steve Beckow, The Golden Age of Gaia, October 30, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/krtbza7

We’re on Whidbey Island tonight, our second last stop from home.

There’s a well-developed community of lightworkers here, most with no connection to the blog, doing yeoman’s work in various areas of lightwork.  I wish I had a second self or could bilocate, to write up what this community is up to. One project sums it up: it’s called the Giraffe Project. It honors people who stick their necks out.

Many people might more correctly be called lightholders and loveholders, following Buddhist and Hindu spiritual paths. It seems a deeply-related community and it tugged on my heartstrings quite a bit to leave it. Continue reading

Heavenletters via Gloria Wendroff: You Are Made of God’s Light

Heavenletters: You Are Made of God’s Light, Channeled through Gloria Wendroff, Heavenletters.org, October 30, 2014 – http://tinyurl.com/pzwo7rl

God said:

From your perspective, it is hard or even impossible to accept that you and I are One. Anyone can see so many variants between Us. You see that I know Everything. And when you are frank with yourself, you admit that you know Nothing. So, then, how can We be One and the Same and be so far apart? Helpless, hapless you and All-Knowing All-Powerful God?

To your mind, if you could take photos of Me and develop or download them, you can’t imagine a semblance. And beyond the surface levels, you also see a great leap between My capabilities and yours. It is too much to fathom. What other way can you take this far-flung idea but with a grain of salt? Continue reading
