evolution of conscious

“Notice Earth is a Timeship on a galactic mission. Time is the current dictator or creator of life and limits its functions on this planet. Many people feel stuck in what may be termed 3-D time loops. Until awakening, one cannot recognize programmed thought patterns, repeating situations and energetic interactions. This is reinforced by regularly-celebrated occasions and the nature of the calendar imposed behind it all. Collective perception is manipulated away from galactic central Time and the hidden power of numbers is widely forgotten. The result is illusions of separation, amnesia about equality of everything from gender to how we unconsciously co-create each moment based on the degree of active/ inactive DNA, and how DNA is reprogrammable via frequency. The orbits of planets in our solar system hold different frequencies of different stages and levels of consciousness. The Sun however, is undergoing inner transformation as part of stellar evolution. Its process mirrors the ongoing expansion of human consciousness. Human beings are re-calibrating genetically and changing sense of time according to a galactic harmonic timing frequency. Information upgrades are transferred via radiogenetics (light codes/ infrasound). Synchronicity is crop circles emerging near sacred sites. The cells of the plants are constantly communicating with all other cells, including human body cells. Imagine human beings are creating/ co-creating ‘real’ crop circles on an unconscious level with a galactic plan. The point is to establish a telepathic matrix where a critical mass of humans bond with Earth’s etheric, magnetic and biopsychic fields to function as a planet (The word ‘planet’ means ‘wandering star’) and active member of a wider galaxies. Each human being is then, 'the Living Book of God.’ The story of life is held within chambers of the human genome expressing our species’ evolution through time. It is encoded as sacred geometry, the language of consciousness which we are each gradually unpacking. It’s like a computer store of the memory is encoded in our DNA, a crystal microchip specific to each individual. Once DNA is fully active, infinity is no longer simply the illusion created by measure of linear time. The Spiritual Sun arises.” - Liara Covert

How To Make Spiritual Growth Easier

 You are on a continual journey of learning and growth - you are becoming wiser & stronger every day. There is no need to judge oneself during this process because it hinders our progress. Instead of being harsh on ourselves for not knowing yesterday what we know today - be thankful for the lessons.

The only person you’re in competition with is the person you were yesterday - use every experience as a learning opportunity to be better than you were before. There is no end goal where you can say “I’ve learnt enough now” - there is always more to learn.

With this in mind I’d like to encourage you to be kind to yourself during your process of conscious evolution. Know that you are becoming a more enlightened spiritual being with every passing day. Detach from all ideas of where you “should be” and accept where you are right now.

Celebrate the progress you’ve made on your journey so far - see how far you’ve come from who you once were. Appreciate that without the mistakes of the past you would not be who you are today - they have helped to make you who you are now.

Indeed, it’s easy to judge ourselves when we reflect on some of the mistakes we’ve made in the past. When you see this happening in your journey take a second to accept that these mistakes were made and then acknowledge what the experiences have taught you.

This is how we become better every day - which is the goal of being on the journey of personal development and conscious evolution. The road ahead will be difficult but loving yourself the whole way will make the journey more enjoyable.

Be kind to yourself while you’re learning.

Peace & positive vibes.

Happiness isn’t a pursuit, it’s a state of being which is strongest when chosen consciously or intentionally auto-suggested. Happiness becomes a pursuit when you become afraid. When you try or pursue as an excuse to become happy, failure becomes encountered. For every “needing”, the less you receive. Everything is vibrational, energy exists in all forms, waves and matter/mass, so if you are in the vibration or feeling of needing, that will continue to perpetuate.

Love whatever emotion arises.

In loving and forgiving someone, we heal ourselves by letting go of our expectations of who we used to be and allow ourselves to be who we may through choice, someone better.

So even in feeling negative emotions, love those emotions that come up because you deserve more love not less. You deserve more love never less always, everyone, equally. because the world is abundant.

We regain our freedom by letting go of our rigid beliefs. Children are free! Children don’t have rigid beliefs. Beliefs and expectations limit you. Let go of expectations. And in your happiness, your balance and center, go after what you love, because you deserve what you desire.

Who are you? Does that matter anymore?

It’s time to ask something deeper, “Who are you when things don’t go your way?”

Once you answer that ask you can ask yourself, “Who are you when things don’t go other peoples’ way?”

Namasté, 💜 🙏

“To get really high is to forget yourself. And to forget yourself is to see everything else. And to see everything else is to become and understanding molecule in evolution, a conscious tool of the universe” -Jerry Garcia

anonymous asked:

I ended up in a debate the other day and was wondering your opinion on the matter. When do you think Henry started recognizing Killian as his father (figure)? Consciously or not. I suspect around the S4 finale subconsciously and coming to realize it throughout S5. Further, when do you think the others started to see it. We know that by S6 Gold has practically disowned Henry. I imagine Snow was one of the last, if not Regina. Though Zelena was probably the first, as usual.

I’ll raise you one. I actually think it was 3B.

Although, you’ve gotta remember, the time lapse between 3B and the end of S6 is, at most, about 6 months. By real life standards, that’s a pretty short time frame for a couple to date, move in, get engaged and then married. But at the same time, it’s kinda decent by fairy tale standards. For a father and son to bond, I’d say 6 months is a good length of time. Especially if they adventure together with the frequency that Henry and Killian do. To answer your question, I think Henry started recognizing Killian as his father figure (subconsciously) from the get-go. That is, 3B—when the two of them bonded over the moon and the stars, nautical knots, and Neal. Henry may have seemed reluctant to push his mother towards dating Killian in 4A, but I think that was all appearances since he already seemed to form a bond with him in 3B.

So subconsciously, the recognition was from 3B. Now when you’re talking about a conscious recognition, when Killian became dad to Henry, then it’s a tad later than that, obviously. They continued to bond all throughout S4 with their sailing trips on the Jolly, where it was just the two of them, the ocean and the ship. They may not have shown it on the show, but when you’re alone with someone on a gorgeous ship in the middle of the open ocean, surrounded by nature and all its power, that’s a helluva bonding experience. It gives them time to talk and get to know each other. For a twelve-year-old boy, learning about sailing a tall ship is one of the best experiences he can get! It would make him an instant rock star amongst his friends, that’s for sure. Not many people have that opportunity in this world. And to learn sailing directly from Captain Hook?! Wow.

So I think the conscious recognition started in the 4B finale. When Henry actively sought out Killian’s help to rescue his mom and, going by the look on his face when he said, “I had a great teacher—you,” Henry showed that he trusted Killian to help them and protect them. So Killian became dad to him in that moment.

And then that bond carried over to S5 and the Camelot and Underworld arcs. See, here’s one of the great things I love about the Killian/Henry relationship—the writers brought them along as a father and son at the same pace that they brought Killian and Emma along as lovers. So while we watched Killian court Emma, we also watched Killian form a father/son bond with Henry. So it was two distinct and strong relationships forming at the same time. Thus, when Killian decided it was about time to take that step and ask Emma to move in with him, he actually included Henry in that whole process. He didn’t need to because, technically, the decision was Emma’s, but he wanted to. Rather than making it a couple’s decision between him and Emma, Killian made it a family decision, between him, Emma and Henry so that Henry knew that he was as much a part of their relationship as they were. And then when Killian “died” later on in the storyline, you could see that it clearly affected him. To the point that he injected himself into the search party when they went to find him in the Underworld. Henry made it clear that he was NOT staying behind while they went and rescued Killian themselves. Killian made an effort for him, so he was gonna make an effort back.

So all of S5 was largely conscious bonding between Killian and Henry. Thus, from 3B to the end of 5B, it was Henry slowly taking on the role of “son” to Killian. What S6 was largely about, from my perspective, was Killian taking on the role of “father”. Because being a father is more than just taking your son out on boat trips and heart-to-heart conversations under the stars. Being a father is a lot of hard stuff as well—like learning to be an example for your son. That’s what “Dark Waters” was about, I feel. At that point, they both knew the father/son thing was there. Neither of them was willing to acknowledge it verbally, but they both knew it was there. So now we see Henry testing the waters. He was a teenager getting to know his boundaries with his father. Likewise, it was Killian learning that “do as I say not as I do” was not good enough when you were a father to a teenage boy. Killian learned that if he wanted Henry to do the good and noble thing, then he had to be his example to follow.

Anyway, that’s what I think in regards to the subconscious/conscious evolution of their relationship. Now when it comes to the others seeing it, I might be at a bit of a disadvantage because I haven’t seen all of 6B yet. I’ve seen the first five episodes or so of 6B, but only short clips of the rest of it. So if some major realizations happened in those episodes, then I wouldn’t really know about them. But from what I’ve seen so far…I would say Zelena was definitely the first, naturally. She’s just about the least deluded of all the characters, I think, other than maybe Rumple. Those two basically tell it like it is 90% of the time. So when it comes to who recognized it first, I would say Zelena, with Rumple as a close second. Emma, I think, started seeing it in 4A. I think in 3B, she was a little skeptical of Killian’s ability to bond with Henry, but I think Killian’s success in that area is one of the reasons why she slowly stopped lying to herself, and slowly admitted she wanted to be with him, throughout 3B. By 4A, Emma was letting them go on day trips together on the Jolly, and encouraging that bond, so Emma definitely came along by 4A.

The Evil Queen, by herself, knew something was definitely there, as we saw in 6A. However, while she was still inside Regina, I don’t think Regina recognized it at all. Reginas always been so damn self-absorbed, I dont think she recognizes it even now. And if she does, I don’t think she even wants to acknowledge it, that Killian is Henry’s father. I mean, I’m thinking about the clip of S7, when Regina was talking about Henry leaving home. She said something along the lines of, “I can’t believe Emma even agreed to this, or Snow and Charming.” Did she say anything about Killian? Now, granted, it might be that Killian didnt agree to it, but her lack of acknowledgment of him kinda shows that she doesn’t recognize that he has parental authority over Henry as well. Regina doesn’t recognize Killian as part of Henry’s family.

Snow and Charming, they probably recognized it somewhere around 5B-ish or even S6. As far as I recall, there hasn’t really been any scenes where they said or did anything to answer that question one way or the other. They certainly haven’t denied it, like Regina just did, but I don’t think they’ve really acknowledged it either. They’re kind of like “meh”. I don’t know. I don’t remember any scenes where they’re acknowledging it. At the same time, like I said, I haven’t seen 6B in its entirety, so maybe there’s something there. Or maybe there’s something earlier, and I’m just forgetting it.

Who am I forgetting? Belle? That character barely had enough scenes to have a proper storyline, never mind her acknowledging the situations of others. She could have been a great character, but Adam and Eddy didn’t seem to wanna use her for anything other than a plot device for Rumple’s storyline, so it’s kinda hard to tell when (or even if) she recognized it at any point. Rumple saying it out loud was one of the best parts of the whole series, though—“the pirate and his son”. :-D

Did that answer your question? Basically, I saw Henry and Killian’s relationship as a father/son slow burn from the get-go (around 3B). Emma slowly came about considering Killian as a potential husband at the same pace, and alongside, Henry slowly coming about considering Killian as a potential father. Like I said, two distinct, yet equally strong bonds forming in parallel.

The writers might be shitty at a lot of things when it comes to their storytelling, but the Captain Swan and Captain Cobra relationships are two of their (very rare) strong points.

Thanks so much for your question! I’m honored that you wanted my input! :-) I love talking about these two. I’m a sucker for father/son stories.

I hope you have a great weekend!

5 Ways To Create Happiness

 The law of attraction states that you attract what you are and what you are is determined by the dominant thoughts and feelings you hold in your mind. Therefore if you want to attract happiness - you must become that which you seek. 

1. The first step is to assess your environment. Look at the world outside and see what you’ve attracted so far. Assess what no longer aligns with that which you are seeking to attract and identify what you need to change about yourself to attract better in the future. This is vital in helping you along your journey of conscious evolution.

2. What’s your self-talk like? Observe the thoughts that run through your mind in your daily life and identify what activities inspire positive self-talk and which do not. If you have positive thoughts whilst drawing or painting and negative ones whilst in the company of certain people - you know what changes to make.

3. What media are you consuming? Become conscious of what you’re feeding your mind. The subconscious mind is a vault - we can only withdraw what we deposit. Be aware of the imagery and energy you’re feeding the mind and how it affects your behaviour and mental state. When I stopped watching TV I noticed a massive positive impact on my mental health.

4. Remove negative associations. Anything and everything negative must be removed from your life if you are seeking to build a life of happiness and fulfilment. Whether they are friends, family or colleagues - removing negativity allows room for positivity. Identify who, what and where is negative and remove them from your life.

5. Spend time with yourself. Knowledge of self is the key to attracting happiness into your life. Once you know yourself well enough to determine that which no longer serves you - you can create a life that inspires you with happiness instead of one you need a vacation from. Knowledge of self is acquired through spending time alone in nature and listening to the voice within.

Bonus tip - being grateful for that which makes you happy is a great way to attract more happiness into your life. Gratitude allows you to occupy a state of abundance - which the universe will repay in kind with more abundance.

True happiness is created, not found.

Peace & positive vibes.

Passion and Confidence ~

Passion and confidence are intimately connected. How can you not be confident when you’re filled with the spark of the divine? When you trust in something greater than yourself, passion and confidence become your natural expression. I have always admired journalist and international correspondent, Jorge Ramos. No matter what his television topic for the day, he exudes confidence and passion. He brings his heart to everything he does. And, as a result, he is successful, loved, respected and supported by millions of people around the world.

If I were to pick my favorite movie, I would say Auntie Mame. I’ve probably seen it more than twenty times. As an eccentric heiress who raises her nephew to be a free spirit in Auntie Mame (1958 ), Rasalind Russell personifies passion. Filled with what I call the light of God, or God’s presence, she radiates passion in everything she does - climbing mountains, playing with children, singing, dancing, exploring, or immersing herself in art and life. That passion strengthens her confidence. 

It has been my experience that solitude - living more in the present moment and letting go and letting ‘the light’ guide my way - all nurture and foster passion and confidence. If we stop looking back in anger or regret or forward in fear and uncertainty, but instead look around us in awareness and joy, then passion and confidence become more our way of being. In his wonderful book Where There Is Light, Paramanhansa Yogananda wrote, “Live each present moment completely and the future will take care of itself.” Fully enjoy the wonder and beauty of each instant.“

Thank You for reading. Take Care for now and as always, I send you much love.

To enter the meaning-world of the text, we must become acquainted with its historical and philosophical background and understand the perspective of the authors. However, once the perspective of the authors is understood, we need to free the text from its historical and philosophical context and listen to it as if it were a trusted teacher. When the text develops a personal meaning for us, it will begin to speak as a spiritual advisor. Finally, we need to let go of our personal attachment to the text, so that the text can take us beyond our personal experiences and become a guide to the frontiers of spiritual consciousness.

More And More We Are Learning How MINDFULNESS Can Help Develop Our Brains …

Source: Power of Positivity - Website

It was not long ago when most people, including scientists, thought that the human brain could not be developed beyond a certain point. The terms “hardwired”, “fixed”, and “unchangeable” were associated with the nerve development of the human brain once a certain age (usually early childhood to adolescence) was reached.

Neuroplasticity is now defined as: “The brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming neural connections throughout life.”

No longer is the human brain thought to be a static, unchanging organ that is limited by our age. In fact, neuroscientists have produced accumulating evidence that demonstrates the brains ability to restructure and form neural connections to compensate for damage caused by injury, disease, and age. So not only can your brain repair and strengthen itself despite of age, it can do so even if it’s been damaged!

Further studies are continuing to demonstrate that mindfulness – the moment-by-moment awareness of thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and environment – can greatly assist with the development of our brain; in essence, aiding the neuroplasticity process. This is nothing short ofamazing! The understanding that you can change your thought processes, feelings and emotions via neuroplasticity through the practice of mindfulness is incredible.

Here are three scientific studies that have shown how mindfulness can rewire your brain…

Study #1: Mindfulness meditation reduces depressive episodes

Millions of people every year are diagnosed with depression and prescribed medication. In the United States alone, depression will affect about 10% of the population in any given one-year period – about 19 million people. In the UK, the number of people taking antidepressant medication hasdoubled between 1998 and 2010.

Professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto, Zindel Segal, utilized a grant given by the MacArthur Foundation to conduct a study on Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (or MBSR). With the assistance of two of his colleagues from the University of Oxford, Dr. Segal found the study to be a resounding success. This study was so promising that Dr. Segal initiated another study to demonstrate the effectiveness of mindfulness meditation on depressed patients, which led to the creation of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).

In the study, all of the patients had been diagnosed with depression, with 80% experiencing three or more depressive episodes (“pervasive and persistent low mood accompanied by low self-esteem and loss of pleasure.”) 34-36% of MBCT participants who experienced three of more depressive episodes had not relapsed over a one year timeframe compared to those who adhered to prescribed care (antidepressants or other).

The results were encouraging, which led to subsequent research at both Cambridge and Oxford University in the UK, with both studies producing similar results. This research has proved immensely valuable in promoting mindfulness meditation as a viable, healthy alternative to drug-based therapies in the UK; leading to more physicians “prescribing” mindfulness meditation to their patients.

MBCT studies and mindfulness meditation continues to find a foothold within the scientific and medical communities within the US and other parts of the world. With results such as these it is easy to see why.

Study #2: Mindfulness meditation improves learning, memory, and other cognitive functions

“Although the practice of meditation is associated with a sense of peacefulness and physical relaxation, practitioners have long claimed that meditation also provides cognitive and psychological benefits that persist throughout the day.”

Harvard University Medical School professor Sara Lazar and other Harvard-affiliated researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital set out to demonstrate her claim through the development of an eight-week mindfulness meditation program.

The eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program consisted of weekly mindfulness meditation meetings and audio recordings for the 16 participants to practice alone. They were then instructed to keep track on how much time they practiced individually each day, which averaged out to approximately 27 minutes for all participants. The focal point of the mindfulness meditation for the study was on “nonjudgmental awareness of sensations, feelings, and state of mind.”

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to take brain structure images of the 16 participants, with a separate set of images taken for the control group – non-meditating individuals who did not participate in the program.

The results were astounding.

Not only did the participants state that they experienced exceptional cognitive benefits, which were demonstrable through mindfulness questionnaires, there were measurable physical differences in gray-matter density within the brain, measured by the MR images.

The images revealed the following:

– Increased gray-matter density within the hippocampus, the area of the brain responsible for learning and memory.

– Changes within the brain structure areas responsible for compassion, introspection, and self-awareness.

– Decreased gray-matter density within the amygdala, the brain structure responsible for anxiety and stress.

A distinguished professor at Giessen University in Germany perhaps best sums up this groundbreaking study:

“It is fascinating to see the brain’s plasticity and that, by practicing meditation, we can play an active role in changing the brain and can increase our well-being and quality of life.”

Study #3: Mindfulness meditation alleviates stress

Professor J. David Creswell and his team at Carnegie Mellon University have demonstrated that long-term mindfulness practice is not necessary to relieve the symptoms of stress. In fact, just 25 minutes of mindfulness meditation for just three days can accomplish just that.

Creswell and his research team conducted a study consisting of 66 individuals ranging in age from 18-30 years. One group of participants was assigned to the short meditation program, consisting of 25 minutes of mindfulness practice for three consecutive days. The meditation group was given exercises, designed to focus on the breath while turning attention inward to their present moment experiences. The other group utilized the same time period to analyze poetry readings to enhance problem-solving capabilities.

For evaluation purposes, all participants were given challenging speech and math tasks to complete in front of stern-looking evaluators. Each participant reported their stress levels in response to these tasks and gave saliva samples to be measured for cortisol, a common stress hormone.

The results:

– The meditation group reported less stress induction from the tasks given; demonstrating that mindfulness practice (even in short duration) can increase the resilience to stress.

– Interestingly, the meditation group showed greater levels of cortisol, which was the opposite of what Creswell and his team were expecting.

Creswell explains: “When you initially learn mindfulness meditation practices, you have to cognitively work at it — especially during a stressful task…these cognitive efforts may result in the task feeling less stressful, but they may also have physiological costs with greater cortisol production.”

The research team now focuses on automating the mindfulness practices, making it less cognitively taxing while decreasing the levels of cortisol. Even in its early stages, short-term mindfulness meditation is showing great promise in alleviating psychological stressors.

Shared With Love. Peace & Blessings, Our Journey to Balance 

I keep thinking about spirits. place-spirits, land-wights, call them what you will. and in particular city spirits.

see, the thing is [and I can’t pretend to know quite how this compares to rural areas, because I am at heart and by lifestyle a city girl] there are just so many of them. you can’t just say ‘the spirit of London’ and have done with it - there is I think a spirit of London in its entirety, but that’s too massive and complex and so very Other and I can’t communicate with it directly - because it’s not that simple.

there’s neighbourhood spirits. and they interlock and intermingle with one another in webs I’m only starting to get a feel for. and they are separate - or at least if not wholly separate from then not wholly the same as - the spirits of the land itself. of the soil and the rock and the grass and the sky. the spirits of the trees. the flora and the fauna. the rivers. the lakes. the ancestors. the Dead, whether resting or restless or merry or glorious.

and then there’s the house-wights, the spirits of houses and offices and businesses. the hearth-spirits. spirits that are half-inherent and half-created - growing and evolving with the history and inhabitants of their Place. and the spirits that are organisations, institutions, in their individual characters, more than the sum of their parts, that may reside in a certain place but are not defined by it. my old college had a spirit, as does each line and each station of the Underground.

I suppose I feel there’s a kind of reductionist, human-centric view of the spirit world that says, one place has one spirit. that London would have this one London-spirit and that is that. all done and dusted. but I don’t think the spirit world can be mapped like that. it’s an infinite regress of complexity, more and more wherever you look. the more I understand, the less I am sure I know.

spirits are multitudinous and complex and they are individuals and also interlinked - as we are all of us interlinked. humans and spirits exist in symbiosis, co-evolution, whether we are conscious of it or no. and if we’re going to understand one another, if we as humans are going to engage with the spirit world, we need to appreciate that. appreciate that to say 'spirit’, as though the spirit of London and the spirit of the Northern line and the spirits that inhabit the cracks and crannies of Mornington Crescent station and the spirit of the earth it’s built in and upon are all the same class of being, is fundamentally flawed. appreciate the multi-dimensional nature of that world. come to that world on its own terms. with a little humility and respect for the enormity and complexity of the beings we share our world with.

we as humans are only a tiny part of the equation. it’s good to remember that.
