Welcome – It’s Time For a New Paradigm

063-small1.jpg

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.

Oversoul Teachings: You’re On the Earth to Be Peacemakers – Part 1/2

Channeled through Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness, Oversoul Teachings

If you cry over spilled milk, you’ll find that you nearly drown in your own tears. If you constantly sweat the small stuff, you’ll find that you’re constantly unhappy and you might wonder why you can’t seem to find the wholeness you want to feel.

Some seekers reach a plateau of happiness and wholeness, only to leave it in favor of the next quarrel; the next drama that successfully takes them out of their divine center.

It’s easy to leave your center in favor of drama and plenty of other things that lower your vibration and make it difficult to re-reach a centered, loving space, but in all honesty, you have no more reason to keep doing so.

You have no more reason to keep convincing yourselves to leave your center – a center that can be very hard to re-reach.

You’re on the earth to be peacemakers; to spread the harmony you can feel within to as many others as you can, but if you constantly quarrel, you won’t be able to spread a good vibration or raise awareness in the manner so many of you are destined to. Continue reading

Who is Ra? – Part 4: The Martians and the Wanderers – 1/2

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

So far, we’ve learned a little bit about Ra and their purpose for remaining in the fifth dimension and communicating with humanity. However, like plenty of other channeled sources, they have a lot to tell us about who we are and how we all made our way to this beautiful little planet we call home.

I’m sure Ra will continue to tell us about themselves and their collective consciousness, but for this installment, we’re going to learn about our origins and the presence of millions of ‘wanderers’ who are here to help the rest of humanity become aware of spirit.

When I first read about wanderers, I was instantly fascinated with the idea. Even though the Company of Heaven are doing a lot to help us evolve, the conscious seekers on the ground are making the biggest and most important impact.

If you feel like you’re on this planet for a very important reason, you might just be one of the waves of souls who incarnated here in a heaven-wide effort to bring humanity and the earth into the light. Continue reading

Steve Beckow: Archangel Michael on Ascension – Part 9/10

Vasanas 231Written by Steve Beckow, The Golden Age of Gaia, July 22, 2014

We continue with our composite interview, this time with Archangel Michael about Ascension.

Vasanas, Relationships and Ascension

Steve Beckow: Are there some people for whom the thought of Ascension raises fear?

Archangel Michael: What we are seeing in many corners of the human collective is that there is an anxiousness, an excitement and an openness to going forward. And it is particularly the light-workers, light-holders, who are saying, “Now is my time and I shall ascend.”

But there is also this other side that you are seeing, as well, and that is why we speak of it this day, that are also saying, “But, but, but, but, can I wait a while? Do I have to give up this or that? Can I bring my family?” These are the traumas that are being integrated, both the difficult and the beautiful. Continue reading

Poll: 77% of U.S. Northwest are in Favor of GMO Labeling

gmo labeling poll northwest 263x164 Poll: 77% of U.S. Northwest are in Favor of GMO LabelingWritten by Elizabeth Renter, Natural Society, July 22, 2014

Who wouldn’t want to know what’s in their food? In 2012, California voters decided they would rather remain blissfully unaware when it comes to genetically modified ingredients, voting down a measure that Big Ag and food producers spent billions campaigning against. In 2013, voters in Washington followed suit. But a recent poll suggests that 77 percent of residents in the Northwestern region of the U.S. would prefer that GMO-containing foods be labeled, so maybe something will change soon.

DHM conducted surveys in three states—Washington, Oregon, and Idaho—and found that residents would prefer to know what’s inside their groceries rather than sit in the dark.

The poll results come as Oregon voters will likely go to the polls on a labeling measure in November. There, 77 percent of respondents said they support labeling GMOs, while 12 percent oppose GMO labeling.

Interestingly, despite Washington voters squashing a similar measure last year with only 45 percent supporting labeling, the new survey found 69 percent in favor of GMO labels.

Bad for Teeth, Brain and Pineal Gland – Is Fluoridating Water Worth It?

Fluoride PoisonWritten by Geweckt Indigo, Contributor for Waking Times, July 22, 2014

Public water fluoridation is one of the most controversial topics today. The people who are advocates for water fluoridation, claim that adding this substance to the public water is beneficial to the community’s dental health because it hardens the enamel on  teeth protecting it from acid and bacteria, making it easier for people to brush away oral bacteria and prevent tooth decay.

It’s also claimed that research shows that fluoridated water reduces a population’s rate of tooth decay between 40-70%.

However, when it comes to the “protective layer” that’s created by fluoride, studies conducted by Saarland University in Germany (published by Langmuir) shows that the “protective layer” is not actually useful. In fact, it’s 100 times thinner than it was previously believed, and that it’s actually 6 nanometers thick. An everyday activity like chewing food is enough to disintegrate this layer created by fluoride. Continue reading

Sabrina Reber: How Do We Make a Difference In the World When So Much Destruction and Chaos is Occurring?

EarthinVioletFlame-1

Written by Sabrina Reber, Raise Your Vibration, July 22, 2014 | Thanks to Awakening Daily.

There are many positive things we can do to help transition the world from a place of fear, chaos and duality into a world of unification, balance and transformation.

Our outer reflections/outer environments are a reflection of humanity’s inner environments, and we as a group consciousness, are reaping the karmic consequences of our mass consciousness falling into the lower vibrations of fear, blame, powerlessness, victim consciousness, separation consciousness, control and greed.

Our current painful circumstances are reflections of many, many lifetimes where we as a group consciousness have not lived in alignment with our higher souls and we have ALL gone against the spiritual laws of the universe.

However, we can use the power of our free will to counteract our previous directions of energies into more life affirming, loving, light filled energies that will help us transmute the negativity on Earth so we can create a better future for ourselves and the generations to come.

In order to change our futures we must change our NOW, and we need to do this by stepping out of our boxes of limitations where we continue to approach our transformation by doing the same things that got us into this position in the first place. The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again expecting a different result. Continue reading
