In my last blog post, I predicted that the outcome of the UK’s election would produce a third shock to the established political system. I linked my prediction to the tragic mass event of the Manchester bombing of the Ariana Grande concert on May 22nd and explained that this “terrorist” created event was, like most acts of violence, spawned from a deeply rooted belief in our collective unconscious—the belief that we are unworthy.
Any individual that invests (albeit unwittingly if indoctrinated) their own energy in support of this belief is on a slippery psychological slide down the slope of self-esteem ending in the perpetual torment of feeling powerless in the world. From my last Blog:
If you believe that you are unworthy in some way, you cannot believe that you are a uniquely powerful being. Terrorists want others to feel as disempowered, as fearful, as terrible, as Continue reading “Awakening to our Shift in Consciousness Through Tragedy”
The “rule of three” is a common feature in communication. It’s found for example in literature and writing in general, rhetoric and public speaking, and the art of comedic delivery. (And there it is again, in that sentence!) The Latin phrase “omne trium perfectum” (every set of three is complete/perfect) conveys the same idea as the rule of three. For quite some time, we have preferred things to be in threes. Now when a long-held belief system—one that appears so obviously “right” as to be unquestionable—shows signs of uncertainty in the human psyche, the rule of three often comes in to help us take notice of its predicament.
It often takes three intuitional prompts for an individual to become aware of an important belief’s instability in their own psyche so that they might go on to examine its validity. At the collective level of the psyche, for the majority to be made aware of a faulty Continue reading “May mayhem in Manchester may affect May’s ambitions”
Underpinning any truly alarming or thoroughly obnoxious mass event is a subtle communication emanating from the spiritual roots of human consciousness. We co-create such events so that deep-seated unconscious psychological issues are brought into our conscious awareness. The more shocking the event, the more important it is for us to decipher and heed the encapsulated message if we are to change our future reality to a more compassionate and loved-filled one for humanity.
The race for the Republican nomination for the US presidency is one such example of an alarming mass event spiritually calculated to shock us into examining a core issue within our Western psyche. I am truly grateful to Donald Trump for bringing into view, through wearing the high visibility jacket of his bombastic personality, a superficial set of odious beliefs that stem from and blanket the core issue. Moreover, I have to say that Mr. Trump, although clearly unaware of his title role of devil’s advocate in this revealing rumpus, has my deepest appreciation, if not my vote. (Actually, he can’t have my vote as I’m British, but you get what I mean.)

Do you fear for the world and its children—in light of the horrendous acts of violence committed by religious fundamentalists?
Have you lost faith in your Faith—in view of the latest and historic abuse carried out by those entrusted with the care of our children?
Why do we create such abhorrent events for ourselves? What makes us perpetuate such violent acts, and how should we respond to violence in order to remove it from our co-created reality?
The quick answer to the why, is that we are creating such events in order that we do something about one of our most pernicious beliefs entrenched within our collective psyche—that, as individuals, we believe we are disempowered.
The historic and still pervasive abuse of children, spouses, other life forms, and the Earth itself, together with the escalating acts of terrorism, might suggest that we are all off to “hell in a handcart.” This may well be the case if we do not deal with the beliefs we hold that can no longer be part of our psychological structure. Violent events are created by the disempowered. For violence to diminish in our reality, we must first address the belief that our individual power has no worth. [bctt tweet=”Co-created, painful “mass events” always tell us to examine and question our belief systems.”]

Caught on a street surveillance camera shortly after their attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices, two of the terrorists proclaimed, “The Prophet Muhammad has been avenged!” They were inferring that staff at Charlie Hebdo had violated the Prophet in some way and had now been “punished” in accordance with Islamic Law. Apparently, their “offense” was the unlawful depiction (a satirical cartoon) of the Prophet Muhammad on the cover of their magazine.
Interestingly, a little research will tell you that nowhere in the original historic Islamic Law is there a single edict or decree that prohibits pictorial imagery of the Prophet. More recent “fatwas” issued by the Taliban (published online in 2001) may have given rise to this mythical new law, when they decreed that all non-Islamic statues and shrines in Afghanistan be destroyed. You might suppose that a cartoon drawing of the Prophet might just fall under the description of “non-Islamic artwork,” however, as it would be impossible to destroy all copies of the artwork, do the artists themselves need to be destroyed? Apparently so, in the minds of the extremists involved. Accord to them, the Prophet Muhammad would condone their actions and reward them in the afterlife.
To those of us with less fanatical Islamic sensibilities, we are left deeply saddened, perplexed, and angry over the spurious logic concocted to support their murderous acts.
