Collective Consciousness

Our Collective Consciousness Creates Our Future…

Collective Consciousness“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering ‘it will be happier’…”~Alfred Tennyson

As we wind down the last few days of 2017 it’s always a good mindful practice to review and call back any of our energy we have left behind. All futures are created from the present so it’s also important to remember that it is our collective UN-consciousness, along with our actions, that created where we are now.

The UN-Conscious Collective

Did I just hear a collective gasp that we are somehow responsible? The Law of Attraction works both ways my friends. What we are seeing with new, and open, eyes is that which was already there but we didn’t want to see. We were hypnotized by an underlying energy that said, “everything is A-OK, no need to look here.” We also didn’t listen when those who looked at it or experienced something different than what we thought was OK, tried to tell us.

The more we fought seeing and hearing what still needed healing, the more negativity, judgement and, at times rage, added fuel to the fire to give it life. We are seeing the flames we fueled. We are now aware of the division that was never healed so we can, as a collective, heal and return ourselves and the world to wholeness.

The Conscious Collective

So, if the collective UN-conscious created this world we live in, imagine what could be if each of us consciously and intentionally added CONSCIOUSNESS to the collective. The future is ours to create with our collective, and intentional, thoughts and subsequent actions.

As 2017 comes to a close, take time to ‘call back’ any energy you left behind. Forgive any guilt or fear or whatever you are feeling as you bring it back. Release what no longer serves you and resolve to awaken, expand and evolve. We can ALL do better so let’s all BE better.

If you’re looking for a type of New Year’s Resolution try this:

“Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”~ Christian D. Larson

Personally I love that passage and the promises to self. Our collective consciousness begins with awareness of our own vibration and alignment. I would also like to add to the collective the vibration of patience. 2018 will have a bit of a rocky start as more of the energy of unconsciousness releases but trust that things will shift for the better sooner than later.

The world we live in today is a result of our collective consciousness. If we want a different world it’s up to us to create it. Let us begin the New Year by loving ourselves and giving the world the best that is in us. Let our collective consciousness add the vibration of peace and love and healing to the world.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Money. It's just paper...

A Book, A Coffee Cup or Money?

“This planet has – or rather had – a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movement of small green pieces of paper, which was odd because on the whole it wasn’t the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.”~Douglas Adams

Is there something you see in the picture that holds more value to you than the other things? Which would you rather have? A Book? A coffee cup? Money?

As I was scrolling through my Facebook feed one day I came across this picture taken by my friend Jonathan Pitts with the words “Today, through my travels, I’ve got Dollars, Euros, and Pounds at the same time. Because of that I’m reminded that they’re just paper.”

A profound statement to be sure. Although he was referring to the ‘currency’ from different countries it struck me that ALL of the items pictured are made of paper and it is merely how we think about those items that gives them value.

If you could pick just one of the items pictured which one would you pick? While we most certainly (at least I sincerely hope we) value books, surely we don’t value a coffee cup the same way. While we might think highly of both the book or coffee cup if given a choice of all three items we would, more than likely, choose the money.

Why wouldn’t we? It has the most value right? I should also ask, which currency you chose because all of them have different values.  Unless you trade currency or are a world traveler or banker, you probably picked the one that has the most value to YOU.

As of today we would have to pay $1.09 USD to buy one Euro and $1.29 USD to buy one British Pound. The British Pound is more valuable according to currency markets. You did pick the British Pound right? Value is a funny thing when we realize it’s simply a piece of paper that we, as a society or country, have assigned a value.

At one time cattle and salt were extremely valuable. They were the currency of their time. Can you imagine if your employer told you they were going to give you a cow or pay you in salt instead of a paycheck? You’d be looking for another job post-haste.

As you can see, what we value is fluid, based on our collective agreement. How we think about and judge money is what gives it value. There are those who think about money as the end all, be all and spend a great deal of time trying to attain great wealth. There are those who reject money because of what it represents to them. There are those obsessed with it and those who couldn’t care less about it.

Many people carry a great deal of judgement about money. The reality is that it is not good or bad and yet we give up a great deal of our space to what we perceive as an almighty, powerful piece of paper. In and of itself, as Jonathan pointed out, money is “just paper.”

I’m not suggesting that money doesn’t have value or that we don’t need it in today’s society to live. We certainly need it according to societal norms. This, however, is simple food for thought as I get to the real point about value as it relates to our self-worth. You knew I’d get to the point sooner or later!

Is your self-worth connected or attached to money?

Does your perceived value (self-worth) go up or down depending on how much you have in the bank? Are you a book full of talent, knowledge and stories waiting for others to see your value before you see it yourself? Are you an empty paper cup waiting for someone to fill you up?

It’s fascinating how much of our space and power we give over to those things in the physical world. If we equate our value with income or how much we have in the bank we are looking outside of ourselves. In effect we are allowing some collective agreement to dictate our value.

What if instead of attaching our self-worth to money we turned our attention within to discover our REAL value? What would it be like if we determined our value and self-worth by connecting with who we truly are instead of attaching it to pieces of paper?

All the items pictured are “just paper” and their value is fluid. It is our judgment which gives them varying degrees of value. If your self-worth is attached to anything other than the magnificent being that you are, cut the cord, take back your power and connect with that which has real value. YOU!~Shine Your Light Debbie
