What the 2016 election has done for me…

What the 2016 election has done for me…

 

It has reinvigorated my drive to become as conscious as possible.  I intend to work as diligently as I can to look at all sides of situations, to understand what is happening and why, and to step out beyond my ego’s perspective so that I can fully embrace what is being asked of me.

 

It has reinvigorated my drive to help others become as conscious as possible too.  There are many many people out there who have the drive and intense desire to become conscious individuals, just like me.  If I can help even one of them with their goal, I’ll be happy…. Even if that one person is just me.

 

2016-11-09 Conscious Eye

 

It is helping me look at where I still have traumas from my past, not only in this lifetime but in all lifetimes, and for that, I am grateful.  What I experience when I interact with the world is a reflection of where I am and what can potentially shift for me.  This election (not just the result, but the whole election process) has helped me understand where I still have issues that need resolving.  Whenever I’m triggered emotionally, there is something there asking to be transformed.

 

It is helping me begin to understand Groups at a whole new level.  Groups of people have been a source of trauma for me… I’ve had a lot of traumatic experiences because I’ve been in ‘Groups’ before, and a lot of those issues are coming up now, again, asking to be shifted and transformed.  I don’t have all the pieces in place yet, but I can feel it coming in energetically.  I trust that when it all assimilates, I will have deeper understandings about how Groups work… the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Deeper understandings will help me transform how I interact with and show up in Groups, which will also help everyone else involved.

 

It is helping me step in to my Leadership as a Visionary and Energy Master.  I look at the world very differently than most people.  I see and read energy at a very high and masterful level, and because of this, I make decisions and choices that some or most don’t necessarily understand, but that turn out to be the right ones.  My next task is to help others step into their power and discernment.  And this election process has helped me understand where the masses are… there is much work to be done.

 

It is helping me understand my ego and when it is working against my intentions.  Everyone has an ego.  The ego is designed to protect us… to create a barrier between our core essence and what it perceives in the world as a threat.  Some call this an ego ‘sleeve’.  By understanding the ego, by evolving consciously to the point where I know if I’m speaking through my core essence or my ego, I can start to work WITH my ego, so that it’s not working against me or what I’m out doing in the world.

 

It is helping me be the kind of person I want to see and interact with.  The only thing I can control is myself.  Even in an election year, we only have perceived control of anything outside of us.  When we think, “My party won.” or “Your party lost.”, it is all temporary anyway.  Being in Groups is about the ebb and flow, the dance, of being heard and listening, of being in the majority and being in the minority.  But no matter what happens “out there”, I can still speak and act from my core essence in all things I do.  I am thankful that this election process has helped me clearly see when and where I speak through my ego and when and where I speak through my core essence.

 

It is helping me focus on what is important, and let go of what is not.  We have a tendency of focusing on things that are actually not important in our lives, and pretending (or believing) that they actually are.  This election has reminded me of what is important in MY life, and it is helping me re-focus on what I find important, and what I’ve just told myself is.  My health, my family, my friends, clients, teachers, life goals, etc., these are the important things to me.  I get to now let go of what I’ve though has been important and get to reconnect with what really is.  Everything is temporary anyway.

This blog post is an adaption from a talk I gave at the Center for Conscious Living in Toledo, Ohio in January, 2016.  The goal is to help give you some hope today… not just hope, but an understanding, my understanding, of our future here on Earth…

 2016-03-10 Group Kids

I’ve always had a ‘different’ sense of perception of the world, from as far back as I can remember… I can remember knowing things that I hadn’t been told, and I also remember knowing what was appropriate to share with others and what wasn’t.  For instance, I remember knowing that I couldn’t say that I had a “crush” on a boy in kindergarten, but somehow I knew that it WAS ok to say that I had a “crush” on a girl in the 1st grade.  I knew, even at 5 years old, that people wouldn’t understand what I meant, and that it was best for me to keep my thoughts about “all that” to myself.  I asked the question, “Why?”

 

I remember being VERY young, and playing with some little plastic ‘people’… I had one plastic person that was white, and another one that was black, and I remember comparing the two side-by-side… my mom, who remembers this story much better than I, says that I had the two little peoples on my fingers, and (looking at the black one) I said, “This peoples…… Has a hat.”  Much to my mom’s relief, I didn’t say any of the ‘typical’ color-associated comparisons that, let’s face it, most of us think of when comparing two people with two different skin pigments.  Even though I could perceive the color differences, I chose to look at it differently, and instead commented on a different aspect that I saw.  It was a pretty big deal for my mom, but… from my perspective later on… Why should it be a “big deal”?…

 

As time continued, I started to feel a push to share what I KNEW I knew… but still didn’t know how I knew it.  I remember hearing a church sermon with my Dad and sisters that was about ‘living one and only one life’, and I remember the fight that my Dad and I got in to afterwards when I said, “But that’s not true!  We live lots and lots of lives!”  Of course, I didn’t have any sort of conscious understanding to support me with my perception, but I KNEW that I was right!  Again, I asked myself a question, even if it wasn’t quite this eloquent… “Why is my perspective met with such criticism, but somebody else’s isn’t?  Why can’t I have a discussion about this with my Dad without being yelled at and told to go to my room?

 

2016-03-10 Goth Hippie

As a teenager, and as I started to step into manhood, I KNEW that I was gay.  I didn’t know how I knew… it was just something that I understood and could easily perceive.  I KNEW that it wouldn’t always be an easy journey for me, and I was fully aware of what happened to some people who came out.  I KNEW that there were many actors and actresses who were gay, but had not told the world, and I KNEW the reason why they hadn’t come out.  They would be (at least they thought they would be) mocked, ridiculed, shunned from Hollywood… a lot of people have experience a LOT worse, just because they say, “I’m gay.”  Basically the same reasons that I didn’t come out for so long.  Why would somebody choose to hate somebody else for being who they are? 

 

Throughout this entire time, and with thousands of additional and similar experiences that I had, there was an underlying current that bugged me, and I remember FINALLY coming to understand it in the form of another question… “Why can’t we all just get along?”  I saw a world that struggled to see my perspective, and people who struggled to see other peoples’ perspectives… I saw people in the world who couldn’t understand what it was that I saw…. couldn’t understand what other people saw .  I continued to have experiences with other people that were utterly astounding and completely confusing to me… and it didn’t matter if I was directly related to the experience or not.  Even in history class, I learned about events where people fought and killed each other, racial hatred, bigotry, gun violence, prejudices, ‘killing in the name of the Lord’, the holocaust… and all the while, I continued to ask myself… “WTF?? Why can’t we all just get along?!?!” “Why is it so difficult for people to ‘put themselves in someone else’s shoes??”  “Why don’t people realize that each and every one of us have our own unique perspective, and honor that?”

I felt, a lot of times, and especially as I continued to get older, that I was in a world where relatively few people actually “got it”.  As a result, friends were hard to come by for me for a good majority of my life…  I did find more friends as I got older, but in order to do that, I had to “come down” to their level… I had to become a participant in the world and it’s current, and let’s face it, it’s more ‘popular’ viewpoints.  In all honesty, I found more happiness being in my room, listening to music, or reading a book than I did being around other people.  But… in order to connect with others, I had to quiet my perspective… I had to hide my viewpoints, I had to hide my true self.  On more than one occasion I can remember thinking that I had been born into a world that… I don’t know, wasn’t ready for me yet…. Or that it didn’t have the capacity to get out of its own way.

 

2016-03-10 Can't We All Just Get Along

Through all of this time though, something was happening that I didn’t realize until just last month… in all of my despair and misery, I was actually setting an intention for myself, and for the world.  The mind has this funny little way of having entire conversations with you that you don’t even realize are happening at the time.  The question that was occupying the front of my mind, and if I were a betting man, I’d say that most of you had this question too… “Why can’t we all just get along?”… took center stage to everything in my life.  But what was happening in the background was something much stronger…  the question I continuously asked myself, day in and day out, IT was the source of the intention that all of us share.  It’s because of these experiences, that I was able to formulate, even in the back of my mind, my intention for life…. For the world I’m living this life in… “I want everyone to get along with each other!”

 

But this isn’t the only intention I had rolling around back there… in fact, there were many many layers there that, as I said earlier, I’ve only just begun to realize recently.  Of course, at the time, it was something that was happening completely subconsciously, but as I look at the energy now, I can finally put words to what I was only able to feel back then…..

 

“I want to be able to express myself completely.”  “I want to feel like I belong.”    “I want to not worry that I’ll say the wrong thing, or piss someone off because of what I’ve said or done.”  “I want others to see MY perspective, and if they’re unable, to allow me to have it without shame or ridicule.” I want to see other people’s perspectives.”   “I want to live in a world where people understand each other.”  “I want to be accepted.”

 

As I realized recently that this was playing out WAY back then, I suddenly could see that I wasn’t the only one who was going through this!  There have been loads of people who have shared this perspective… and they’ve wanted the same things that I wanted!  Each of us have had similar intentions in our own lives.  Each of us yearns to be accepted, to be able to express ourselves, to feel a sense of belonging, to be able to share our own perspective and not be ridiculed for it.

 

Suddenly I felt a surge of energy… and what followed next was nothing short of extraordinary… “It’s because we collectively shared these experiences and conditions, that we actually have put in motion the shift in consciousness needed to actualize these intentions!”  It is because YOU asked similar questions of the world… It’s because WE saw a world that we KNEW could be better… It’s because we were tired of ‘the way things are’.  And that leads me to the hope… no, the belief… the perspective… I have about the future, and I’m not afraid to share it anymore.

Most of you have heard about the young children who are being born on this planet right now.  We have many names for them… Rainbow children… Indigo’s… I call them Crystalline’s.  Some, if not most of you, were born as such, and even if you weren’t, you are now! =)  It’s because you share this perspective with me and others that makes you such.  One of the predominant characteristics of this group of people is that we do not follow the path that ‘the world’ has set for us.  We can step back and say, “Hey now, wait a minute, hold on a second…”  The children being born now not only have a different perspective… they’re not afraid to express it!  It is because EVERY child who is being born today, tomorrow, the day after… they are ALL Rainbow Children, Indigo’s, Crystalline’s.  They march to the beat of their own drums for sure!  They are not only able to have a different perspective themselves, they are much more open to other people’s perspectives too.

 

As these young Crystalline’s are being born and raised, an interesting thing is happening within “Groups” of people… Because of the sheer number of Crystalline’s being born and raised, they are redefining Group contrast, and are turning the tide of the closed-mindedness of the generations before them.  They are riding the wave of this shift in consciousness, and are taking Group Energy to a level that we have NEVER experienced on this planet in our recorded history.  They are free to be social and express themselves in their world without restriction, and they are met with joy and acceptance from each other.  They aren’t afraid to try new things, to be creative, or to master difficult tasks.  And because of the support they are creating for themselves with the sheer number of them being born, they are coming up with extraordinary advances in technology, health, and global needs.

 

2016-03-10 Possible Kid

There is a 19 year old boy who has developed a way to clean up our oceans!  There is another boy who developed a solar panel based on the Fibonacci sequence, which is able to collect more energy than any other solar panel in existence.   A 9 year old recruited people and started a non-profit that is leveraging the power of digital media to engage children in the United Nations Millennium Development Goals project, which includes more than 24,000 people in 41 different countries.  By then time a girl named ‘Alexandra’ was 8 years old, she raised over one million dollars for cancer research by organizing lemonade stands!  EIGHT YEARS OLD.  A 6 year old named Ryan was shocked to hear that people and children in Africa didn’t have access to clean drinking water, so he started giving seminars on the subject, and by the time he was 20, he has developed wells in over 650 projects, in 16 countries, bringing clean drinking water to over… get this… 714,000 people!  I could literally go on and on and on, and I encourage you to google, ‘extraordinary’ or ‘amazing’ children, and you can read hundreds, thousands of articles, see pictures, and even get involved yourself.

 

And the amazing thing, is that they can easily take a leadership role in a group or with a project, and are just as happy and successful in a supporting role too.  They don’t have the limits and conditions that their elders had.  They don’t say, “This can’t be done.”  Or  “We don’t have the money for it.”  There are NO ROAD BLOCKS in their eyes.  They are forming what I call, ‘Crystalline Families’ all over the world.  Whether their parents and other relatives are part of these Crystalline Families or not doesn’t matter.   If they don’t have their own Crystalline Family via blood relatives, they’ll find their own with other Crystalline’s.  They tap in to the JOY of doing what is right, what is good, what is fair, and just.  They “get it”.

 

The only thing standing in the way of a completed shift in to the new energies, is the rigidity that most of the people in charge in the world have.  The struggle that Crystalline’s face, the issues that come up for them, are similar issues that we faced back in the day… the problem is that the change isn’t happening overnight, and there are some Crystalline’s who are affected in the same way we were.

 

It’s our job now to support these young Crystalline’s, as they are here to do some pretty amazing things.  We need to listen… DEEPLY listen to them and their perspectives.  We need to foster environments that allow their gifts and talents to be developed.  We need to let them lead us down a better path than was created for us.  We need to let them be creative and inspirational to others, and guide them along their purpose.  We need to be sure that we are not giving them the blocks that we have, or that we were given by others.  And when we see that someone is doing that, we need to address it directly.

 

The best way to do this, is to remember that perspective you have had throughout your life, and connect to it often.  Remember that feeling that YOU felt as a child or young adult, or maybe even as recently as yesterday or this morning, that feeling of ‘I want things to be better.’  The feeling of ‘Things CAN be better.’  Take a moment, close your eyes if you like, and imagine a world where EVERY individual person is operating at THIS level.

 

Imagine waking up every day, and having a perspective that ANYTHING is possible.  Imagine being able to collaborate with everyone around you to accomplish things that were only just a dream the night before.  Imagine being supported… Imagine that your perspective is not only valued, but sought after.  To me… this is PURE JOY!  THIS is how I want to wake up and live this life.  THIS is the joy of being in “Groups” in the New Energies.  This feeling of peace, and openness, and safety, and trust, and harmony… this is what can happen… what WILL happen… as we continue to move forward.

 

Remember this when you hear about bad things that happen in the world.  Remember this when people try to give you their own negative perspective about life.  Remember this feeling of connection that you have right now, when you see a young child who is in need of connecting with other Crystalline’s.  Remember to look at situations from these young one’s point of view, to see what they see, their perspective.  The joy of Groups in the new energies is that each person in the group can have a higher perspective, which allows us to step out of our ego’s enough to see the similarities in each other.  The more we can do this, the faster we will achieve what we’ve been wanting… intending… all of our lives…. To be accepted for who we are, and appreciated for the perspective we bring to the world.
