Collective Consciousness/Unconscious, also called Mass Consciousness, is a clear reflection of our beliefs, positive or negative. Mass consciousness creates mass reality and can alter it. If we can unite and effect our Collective Unconscious, world events would change. Our reality is determined by that Collective Unconscious. Yes, there is a profound and crucial impact reflected from all we are exposed to, surrounding us, (e.g.. again, the Mass Media can be recognized as a means of controlling world event). Yet, in addition, the joyous results of Mass prayers and visualizations have impacted on many world events, from the Harmonic Convergence, to Earth Day, to the believed avoidance of numerous possible catastrophes by the intervention of mass prayers and sending of light. From a scientific viewpoint, there have been studies in which the effects of prayer have been attempted to be measured. At the Gaiamind Meditation Event (Jan. 23, 1997) scientists measuring the effects determined it did show a significant effect in our measurements, conforming to hypothesis of the experiment. Scientists using the PEAR method of monitoring global consciousness via Field REG (Random event generation) have ascertained a response in their readings to mass consciousness and have even had results in random number generation from smaller groups, even over long distances and with delayed intervals of time, revealing that consciousness can direct its influence directly across space and time, as mystics have claimed throughout the ages. (see Journal of Scientific Exploration at Suggested Reading below for more information on these studies). In addition, the Harmonic Convergence, when people all over the globe were asked to pray and meditate during a five minute period between the hours of 12:00 noon and 12:35 on a particular day (June 19), it was felt by many that this had a positive effect on averting various global problems that were then festering. It is found that a general rise of consciousness will occur if as few as one per cent of humanity would elevate its level of consciousness. (Does this sound familiar from the Bible where God told Abraham that if he could find 10 good people he would not destroy Sodom and Gomorrah--the story of Lot). Of course it is faith that propels us, not the limitations of our level of science in understanding or measuring spirituality. It is all our choice.
On the other hand, the reverberations of terrorist activities, and other negative events, have a two-fold effect. Firstly they bring to our attention the Not, what we dont want, so that we use even greater efforts to change that reality and mobilize, visualize and pray that it cease. Secondly, they offend us so greatly that we reflect hate and violence back at those perpetrators, magnifying and amplifying the negative vibration, which perpetuates it. Those who are terrorizing others, out of their own fear and want, are those who are panicking and unable to accept the new change and love that is the next step in our development. They dont know which way to turn, and resort to the old fear solutions, strike out and hurt. If it wasnt so heinous it would be easier to look upon these as the acts of scared, selfish children. Their acts serve to facilitate and speed the change from fear to love, and unite and mobilize those who seek love and peace. Their atrocious and selfish acts, such as the recent bombings in Ireland and Africa, are so heinous (and the information is distributed so immediately worldwide), that any one viewing must reject the bombing of young school kids, who could be our own, who only want peace and are on their way to a McDonalds to get a hamburger, just as our kids might do--it is all so close to home and in our laps. Our collective response, prayers, visualizations, do and can help prevent those nots from performing their heinous acts. Terrorists are people in the wanting. They, out of fear (selfishness, the have not and unworthy attitude), choose to remain in the wanting. I do not have that and need that (actually it is to feel loved and worthy) and I will do such and such to get it, even bomb innocent children. The physical things that they claim to seek will never satisfy their desire, need, or HABIT of being in the wanting. They are so accustomed to that frame of mind and frame of spirit that their goals are beyond the tangible, physical things for which they claim to fight. The hate that they feel, their feeling of victimization, which they seek to reflect to others, is so ingrained, so conditioned and passed down for so many generations, that no amount of territory or negotiable compromises will ever satisfy them until they feel the love, unity and worthiness that they have not been taught, that they do not feel. Since love and fear cannot co-exist, it is for us, as difficult as it may be, to send love and light to those people. To visualize enclosing them in a ray of love and light to heal them and show them that we are all one on this planet and it will all be O.K without the need to kill, maim and throw tantrums. By the same token, the acts of these people are a reflection of our own fear, negativity and violent thoughts. We must take responsibility for creating those acts. Having done so we can then attempt to heal and cleanse that part of ourselves that is attracting and reflecting those activities. We are all related, and we must take responsibility for these acts--it all comes from the inside. Release the fear, negativity and violence in yourself and send love and light to heal those performing these atrocities. We must acknowledge that the situation on our planet perfectly reflects our personal lives. Why must it take trauma before we are catalyzed into action, to stand up and say Enough violence. Enough abuse. Enough sensationalism, poverty, hate...? Once we unify our Collective Conscious and Unconscious to reflect what we really say we want we can perform miracles. We must visualize and affirm Absolutely, positively, unquestionably NO CATASTROPHES! Another quote from Nelson Mandelas Inaugural Address; As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. It all starts individually with our own thoughts, belief systems and prayers.
