Modern society surrounds us with information and cues that suggest we are superior to our ancestors. This post and the podcast it was inspired by have been created to balance and harmonize our tendency to spring forward into the future and seek more and newer and faster aspects of everything in our lives. You will find the podcast below. Enjoy!
Let's begin with the world as we know it today. Where we have been taught to believe only what we see. When we believe only what we see, then we see an enormous building in a large city or the features of the latest iPhone, and we think "progress". When we believe only what we see, then yes, these are some of the penultimate versions of "progress" available to humanity at present.
Enter the notion that our world, our bodies, and the universe are more expansive than we know, and that we have forgotten how to "see" and "feel" and "know" beyond our five senses. If you humor me for a moment with this notion of "remembering" our innate abilities, our own power, and the vastness of life that exists beyond the physical, then you'll immediately see why the latest iPhone can actually slow us down on our path to awakening.
Why? because the bulk of our society and technology in general have a tremendous desensitizing effect. Think of the last time you want to see a movie, or even watched one at home. The action scenes and the music and the plot twists can be thrilling.. but then most movies in the mainstream are jockeying for a little bit more thrill, pop, surprise... As these achieve larger effects on people , they also reach into our field and affect our energy.
Think now of the last time you saw a sports game on TV. The commercials, the music, the layers of story/drama and thrill of the game.. all get humanity excited and desensitized. This is part of what makes many people not want to simply go outside and listen to nature, or spend time taking a walk in the woods or meditating. I've been told by many that these things are initially tremendously boring. This is because all of the noise and thrill... essentially all of static is gone. Humanity has forgotten how to feel and see into the silence. The good new is now is the time to remember :)
I'm about to get off my soapbox, but want to leave you with the notion that you are a highly energetically sensitive being... and to suggest that you can communicate telepathically without the use of a cell phone anytime you need. You can even see images and send images via your third eye, without your phone. I'm not saying to ditch your phone, I an suggesting to put it in its proper place and become interested/spend more time on your own abilities, wisdom and knowing.
Finally, our need for speed. I'm not the first to suggest that we've become addicted to immediate gratification. This is part of the beauty of the internet and sites like Amazon where you can decide you want something and have at your doorstep in 2 hours. This too is a low bar for our innate abilities, as the universal laws do not require money nor time nor fossil fuels to pull things out of the ether and into the 3rd dimension. Again, not suggesting ditching the internet or Amazon, rather encouraging a focus on manifestation in its truest form. Which brings us to our need for speed, faster technology and car engines are a thrill... but they're actually the lesser in comparison to the Law of Right Timing and Law of Attraction.
The Law of Attraction tells us that when we are an energetic match to what we desire we attract it immediately. The path of personal development and awakening that the universe requires for us to attract and manifest what we want is something we will all be grateful for when we truly master our own fears and insecurities. These fears or false belief systems are what drive most to "want it now".. because quite honestly we're not sure it is actually going to happen. I need it now is mostly a fear or state of resistance, where rather than work through our insecurities and beliefs that don't actually serve our highest good, we'll take a bandaid of immediate pleasure or satisfaction.
Phew! Please take all of this as simply my opinion (as well as everything that I offer). Ultimately you are the one who gets to decide for yourself what is true.
I want to close and bring things full circle with Law of Right Timing. This is part of the wisdom transmission that comes from our ancestors and the wisdom keepers. The teaching, as I currently understand it shows us that we are all connected and that time does not have to be a linear, individual experience. Put another way, there is a collective consciousness that governs energies of our planet, and we are each a part of this. I often see us each as sovereign threads threads of light existing in a fabric that woven together. It follows that everything we are and do affects everything else, and that we are also affected by the collective. As the collective energies are raising the planet, some of our dreams and desires for the future are becoming more "energetically supported" or more possible .. which is why we can experience time as "speeding up". Some of what we dream and know for our future is ready for manifestation now, and the elders say the rest will be supported at the right time, when the collective is able to support it. This means that manifestation is both an individual (Law of Attraction) as well as a collective (Law of Right Timing) phenomenon.
This is also why patience and perseverance, and trust and inner knowing are so important and powerful right now. Because we are literally seeding our future today. May you be blessed with love and inspiration to dream and believe in a brighter future.
