Becoming Aware - Finding Your Ability To See
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate.”
We are still in the midst of some pretty strong astrological influences that are changing our human experience. At the moment these changes may seem obscure or unnoticeable but they are happening. So many people are waiting for COVID to go away and are sitting idly by waiting for the powers that be to fix the problem so life can go back to normal.
What if the old normal is forever in the past and the new normal is still ahead in an area of the unknown? We are transitioning and the transition is in its early phases.
We are currently experiencing the beginnings of a great transformation on a global and personal level. This will go down in history as the transformation the world had to have because without change our human species would become extinct.
Just as the Crusades occurred, so did the Reformation, so did the Renaissance and I’m not sure what this period in history will be called. Perhaps it will be The Great Awakening.
Some context on our collective human situation. At the beginning of the 20th-century psychological warfare was thrust into the world, in such a way that masses of people had no idea it happened. This was a passive but very effective manipulation to corral individuals toward a collective way of thinking. It was so well manoeuvered that most people had no idea it was a manipulation.
We were lulled into a way of living that sated our senses with ideals not of our own integral wantings. This mind manipulation came in the form of positive language in a group think format. Groupthink is where an individual is swayed by mass thinking and changes your individual thought to the group's thinking. In many cases it’s so you can fit in and not because it’s the right thing to do.
In the past groupthink was used by tribes but in a way that was for the benefit of all so the tribe would survive.
This is a quote from Edward Bernays, author of Propaganda:
“The systematic study of mass psychology revealed…the potentialities of invisible government of society by manipulation of the motives which actuate man in the group…[these studies] established that the group has mental characteristics distinct from those of the individual, and is motivated by impulses and emotions which cannot be explained on the basis of what we know of individual psychology. So the question naturally arose: If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it?”
In our modern world today, groupthink has been manipulated so much that it goes against the survival of the tribe. The modern version has seen us more separate and individualized to the point where we don’t rely on the tribe to survive. Considering our own nature is to be social, we are going in the opposite direction.
The manipulation of groupthink has seen masses of people directed toward the desire to be better than the man next door and it has been done by subtly telling you that you need something to make you feel better, to make you happier, to make you more attractive, to make you more intelligent, to make you more worthy, to make you more successful, to make you more likable, to make you thinner, to make you more fashionable, to make you more loveable, to make you more acceptable, to make you more confident, to make you more everything. Never are you assured that you are okay exactly the way you are.
The subtle manipulation has ensured separation is alive and well and is at the core of your psyche. Not only are you not the same as the guy next door, you are most likely feeling that you are not as good as the guy next door. If you are always comparing yourself to the guy next door you are either wanting to be better than him or you know you are not as good as him, and you want to be. So you go about making that happen. You buy every product known to man to improve yourself because in your psyche you have been told you are not good enough the way you are.
This manipulation of thinking is used by corporations and governments to sell you anything and everything you need to ensure you keep improving your physical self and your physical environment so you can compete and stay in the race. In this model, separation is alive and well, and profit-making is at an all-time high.
In a culture where you are continually being divided psychologically into more than or less than, equality and oneness are impossible. Being social creatures at the core of our being, living in a world of separation and division is creating our individual and collective mental health disorders.
This is the model of propaganda where mass manipulation of your psychology has ensured you are disempowered. As you know, if you are disempowered, then someone or something has power over you. Groupthink is involved in many human influences such as sport, though it’s more commonly obvious in religions and politics.
What does being free mean to you? In my own psyche, it would equate to being able to be myself fully and to go where I want, speak to whomever I want, learn whatever I want, and experience whatever I want. But am I really being myself if I am being manipulated to think a certain way?
It is no wonder that we still have mass racism in so many human sectors and a lack of equity between men and women. It is much easier to divide and conquer, it’s much more lucrative also. Sadly there is a huge environmental price we are paying for this. The environmental price includes our own mental health and our physical health due to the mass increase in consumerism. Our groupthink desires are being sated at the expense of the planet we live on.
It is well established that because of our way of life the planet is as sick as it’s ever been. But don’t worry, the planet will survive. Don't feel guilty. It is we humans that won’t.
The Great Awakening
So that was a lot of context for commentating on astral influences and the changes that are occurring. It is important to know that you can’t consciously change what you can’t see. This applies to both your individual self and the collective consciousness of the entire globe we live on. Take a step back and look at this from an angle that is impartial to the competitive nature of the human condition. You know something is not right.
In previous short blogs, I wrote about the Pluto and Saturn placements and their effects on us. Particularly of note is Pluto and the cyclical nature of fundamental changes. We are at the beginning of another cycle. Rest assured, whether you are aware or not, change is happening and will continue to happen at a fundamental level in the years and decades ahead.
You would need to be a complete sleeper if you hadn’t noticed the spiritual awakening that is occurring. Is it just me or is every second person you speak to doing some form of meditation or esoteric course. COVID may be seen as a catalyst for change. It has given people a reason to stop and look at the world at a slower pace. Slower because for many they don’t have a job anymore, or they have half of one, or are working from home and not having to put up with the arduous commute to work. More time, more time to think.
We are now, in 2021, living through the greatest impulse for transformation in the history of our civilization. This transformation is global and it is individual. Don’t think you’re getting out of this. You can sit on your couch and watch the world change before your eyes, and you may think it has nothing to do with you. You would be wrong.
Whether you take steps towards your own individual change as a human being, the transformation will happen. But if it happens TO you, instead of you leading the charge, you will be pulled kicking and screaming into a future that you have no say in and you may not like what you’ve transformed into.
The thing is, we need you. We all have roles to play in this global change. We can only change the globe one person at a time. So that means you can only change yourself. These forces are pushing you to wake up and become the awesome version of yourself. If you have no idea who that is, you best get in touch to find out. If you are already awesome, thank you for being you. You are part of the wanted list. If you're wandering aimlessly and hopelessly then this blog will be speaking to you strongly.
We need active participants in this fundamental change for our species. We need to stop the manipulation, wake up and become empowered again. We need ourselves back in the game. Each one of us has a role to play. If you think you’re not a player, you are wrong. You have gifts and abilities that are needed. Individually we have something special to bring to the world. There are no exclusions to this. Your own transformation is needed, it is necessary and it is wanted.
Bring awareness back into everything you do. Question who you are and what you are capable of. Question your levels of kindness. Question your attitudes toward separation. Question your pain and anger. Question your heartness and your compassion. Question yourself and ask those big questions of why you are not the amazing person you know is within you. Were you influenced to think you’re not good enough?
If you already know who you are and you know you are loved and loveable, and an amazing human being, pass on the good vibe to your friends and work colleagues. Don’t be afraid to be awesome. We need wonderful people who are free thinkers, who are not manipulated, who are free in mind and spirit, who are kind, and who know how to care. Our species depends on you. Please help.
Knowing who you are and what you are capable of is knowledge well worth pursuing. When clients get a glimpse of their potential, life-changing steps can be taken.
