Awakening to our Shift in Consciousness Through Tragedy

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”

Now Trump’s in, What do I do About My Fear? (Part 2 of 2)

How to be responsibly responsive and dissipate your fear

In Part 1 of this blog article I said that most people will be experiencing just two feelings now that Donald Trump has begun his Presidency. Fear and excitement. If you’re feeling predominantly fearful (anger, frustration, and resentment are reflections of fear) then you’ll need to be in full control of your responsive actions if you want to stand any chance of changing the reality that’s disturbing you. You must have a responsible mindset if you are to be effectively response-able.

Feelings are independent energy forms that alert your conscious mind to information about to transfer directly from your inner (spiritual) self. They often act as “emotional-signals,”[i] telling you that you’re creating emotional energy within you. And that emotional energy has a desire to be expressed. If you’re feeling excited by events then you are in an excellent mental position to Continue reading “Now Trump’s in, What do I do About My Fear? (Part 2 of 2)”

Drowning in Asylum Seekers, Refugees, Migrants, and Despair

I often finish work just before 6pm so that I can settle down on the sofa with a glass of Merlot and a handful of nuts to watch the BBC news. Last Wednesday’s opening story had me in despair before I could put glass to lip or crunch a walnut. Quite rightly, in my opinion, the BBC showed images that for once were truly disturbing. Their report showed pictures of a Turkish police officer carrying the body of a small boy from a beach. The boy, Aylan, his brother and mother had drowned in a desperate attempt to reach a Greek island within the European Community. When I thought about it a little later in the evening, I became alarmed as to my “normal” state of insensitivity. I realized that it had taken such harrowing images to arouse one of the foremost “Natural Principles” within me.

Compassion is that foremost Natural Principle

I say alarmed, as it would appear that in order for events of human suffering in other areas of the world to truly grab my attention these days, ever more shocking input is required from my outer senses. It’s no longer enough to read or hear of hundreds of migrants perishing in the waters of the Mediterranean, or of dozens of refugees suffocating to death in the back of a truck in Austria, or of asylum seekers risking life and limb to scramble over razor wire at the Channel Tunnel entrance, for me to sit up and focus.

Do You Want To Be In Divine Love?

My latest book How To Be In Divine Love is free to download at Amazon Kindle – August 26th through August 30th, 2015.

Kindle edition of How To Be In Divine LoveClick here or on this cover to get you to the download page at Amazon.

Listed within this book are a set of “Natural Principles.” Gleaned from spiritual and metaphysical literature, they provide you with an ethical and vital code by which to live your life. They are derived from the natural forces, the “laws of the inner universe,” that drive everything in existence.

The Natural Principles are not a set of laws or commandments from on high; they are a purified set of behavioral guidelines—primarily mental behavioral guidelines—unadulterated by institutional dogma.

Natural principle #3 - compassion
The 3rd Natural Principle – Compassion

In addition to the “Law of Attraction,” the Natural Principles are at the heart of the vital power that drives the Universe, Consciousness – and your consciousness. They are Continue reading “Do You Want To Be In Divine Love?”

Afraid of Spiders? (Part 2 of 2)

Arachnophobia – symbolic of our fear of disconnection?

After lunch, I headed over to the teaching room for the start of sessions. I picked out a chair from the circle placed around the room and sat down. As I waited for my fellow students to arrive, my thoughts turned to my conversation with Karina. Her remarks on the symbolism of spiders as told by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon, was both encouraging and intriguing to me.

I’ve always had a professional fascination with the fear of spiders. In my counseling work, I’m aware that treating arachnophobia requires a different approach from other phobias and irrational fears. The therapeutic technique I use from Energy Psychology methods has its own distinct protocol. Furthermore, when it comes to irrational fears, arachnophobia beats all. Interestingly, it is the most prevalent phobia in the Western world—yet apparent not so within indigenous cultures.

  • What is it about spiders that puts them top of the scary things list?
  • Why is this phobia such a significant part of the human condition?

Our Western rational minds cannot figure this out. Our fearful response to spiders far outweighs their inherent threat to our survival. After all, the majority of spiders are quite harmless and their physical presence is hardly an imposing one—unless they gang up of course.
