Rewind, it’s July 2020. My life for the past 3 years up until this point had consisted of living a nomadic lifestyle with a base on the East Coast of America. I had gotten the swing of the digital nomad lifestyle and had a consistent design client and a part-time job in real estate. Then the world shut down and like most people, I lost both my jobs. I had spent the summer back in my hometown carefully calculating my next steps, watching the news daily about where I could and couldn’t go.
How The Heck I Ended Up In Tulum
The plan was the move to Montreal, where my design client was going to sponsor my visa and offer me full-time employment at a boutique marketing agency. This was the “plan”, if I’ve ever had one. I still wanted to travel to Canada that summer but day by day I realized I was just chasing a continuous closed border extension date.
As I was sitting in my beautiful studio apartment I had manifested for free in Newport, Rhode Island overlooking the sea, a friend messaged me from Tulum and said I should visit, and she had a spare room. Something inside of me said “yes” even though moving to Mexico in the summertime wasn’t exactly on my bucket list. A week later, I was landing at Cancun airport with just a backpack. A month later, I hadn’t left. When prompted, “How long are you staying?” I replied, “I don’t know.” I’ll keep on waiting, waiting for the world to change.
When I arrived in Tulum that July, it felt like a ghost town. No one was here. Everyone was still afraid to travel.
Fast forward a year and a half later, me and many others are not only waiting for the world to change, we’re here creating those changes in the world. We’re raising our vibrations and others are following. Perhaps you’d call us the modern-day Woodstock hippies that moved south of the border. We are the conscious creators, the freedom fighters if you will.
We are the people that believe in the power of human kindness, of inner alchemy changing the matter around us.
We know that inner peace creates outer peace, in our relationships, in our communities, and ultimately in our world. We’re here doing the work because we have no other choice. Outsourcing our joy to another amazon prime order just isn’t doing the trick anymore. We’re realizing the futility of “things” and the importance of choosing our values wisely.
The time is now to rise, or to fall in fear. Humanity has gotten a massive wake-up call and we’re realizing on some level that our old way of existing isn’t sustainable. Living our lives in constant stress is deteriorating our immune systems.
The Real Virus? Overwhelming Fear
The best way to strengthen your immune system? Eat well, yes, and most importantly, regulate your stress levels. How do you do that? Take note of your triggers and dig deeper. Are you responding or reacting to your life moment by moment? Are you choosing your automatic responses or are they controlling you? Where did they come from, and are you continuously projecting the same story onto every similar situation out of habit?
Our subconscious minds run the show out of habit unless we overwrite them by creating new neuropathways. Our formative years ages 0-7 mapped our brains on how we received love and how to stay safe. Our childlike minds make a lot of assumptions based on the circumstances and beliefs we pick up along the way. Our minds keep all this information stored in the depths, and need routine debugging like a 2001 Microsoft computer.
Your operating system cannot keep running on old outdated software anymore. You’ve gotta look at the trash sometimes and empty it, or watch it overflow into your life… causing stress, illness, worry, until you get a wake-up call.
Everything going on in your life is a mirror and an opportunity to learn. We’re given lessons on a daily basis that we chose to ignore. We outsource serendipities as too good to be true, as mere coincidences. We don’t understand that Spirit, God, whoever your higher power, is communicating with you moment by moment. We’ve all fallen from grace, from heaven, into this Earthly plane into a physical incarnation. Inherently we are spirit. And we become so focused on this physical 3D life that we totally forget how powerful we really are.
Maybe You Forgot How Powerful You Really Are
Ever heard of Christ Consciousness? Let’s explore this for a moment. Religion has seriously skewed the intended teachings of Jesus Christ. Christ Consciousness is an awareness of the higher self as part of a universal system. Although it can be interpreted in a number of ways, a common understanding is that Christ Consciousness is the state of consciousness in which a person has found self-realization and unity with God or the Divine.
It was named after the spiritual elevation Jesus achieved during his mortal life, and is symbolic of the enlightenment attained by spiritual masters after a period of suffering. This is a common concept among many different religious traditions and is not unique to Christianity. As such, Christ Consciousness is available to all those who seek awareness and spiritual awakening, regardless of their personal religious adherence.
In seeking Christ Consciousness, the idea is to transcend physical existence and experience one’s own divinity and God-like nature. It is a path of love, peace, harmony and bliss, which leads to an understanding of the omnipresent higher power that connects all beings in the universe.
How do we put on the mind of Christ? How do we see through his eyes? How do we feel through his heart? How do we learn to respond to the world with that same wholeness and healing love? That’s what Christian orthodoxy really is all about. It’s not about right belief; it’s about right practice…
I have found this best explained on the Center of Action and Contemplation website and have copied the following excerpts for ease of explanation:
Jesus uses one particular phrase repeatedly: “the Kingdom of Heaven.” You can easily confirm this yourself by a quick browse through the gospels; the words jump out at you from everywhere.
So what do we take it to be? . . . [Jesus] says, “The Kingdom of Heaven is within you” (that is, here) and “at hand” (that is, now). It’s not later, but lighter—some more subtle quality or dimension of experience accessible to you right in the moment. You don’t die into it; you awaken into it. . . .
The Kingdom of Heaven is really a metaphor for a state of consciousness; it is not a place you go to, but a place you come from. It is a whole new way of looking at the world, a transformed awareness that literally turns this world into a different place. . . The hallmark of this awareness is that it sees no separation—not between God and humans, not between humans and other humans. And these are indeed Jesus’s two core teachings, underlying everything he says and does. . . .
When Jesus talks about this Oneness . . . . what he more has in mind is a complete, mutual indwelling: I am in God, God is in you, you are in God, we are in each other. His most beautiful symbol for this is in the teaching in John 15 where he says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Abide in me as I in you” [see John 15:4–5]. A few verses later he says, “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Abide in my love” [John 15:9]. . . . There is no separation between humans and God because of this mutual interabiding which expresses the indivisible reality of divine love. .
No separation between human and human is an equally powerful notion—and equally challenging. One of the most familiar of Jesus’s teachings is “Love your neighbor as yourself” [Matthew 22:39] . . . as a continuation of your very own being. It’s a complete seeing that your neighbor is you. There are not two individuals out there . . . there are simply two cells of the one great Life. https://cac.org/the-kingdom-as-consciousness-2020-11-18/
Seperation Is A Lie, We Are All One
The point of the above is this. WE ARE NOT SEPARATE. Separation is the ego, and it is fueled by fear. People are beginning to wake up and realize this notion. That we are all connected by source energy, we are all one species, and because we have incarnated in physical form we forget that. Everything is energy. Ever think of someone and then they call? That’s because we’re telepathic, connected by thought and intention.
We are always feeling energy moment by moment, often outsourcing our intuitions as meaningless and futile. Except we are actually co-creating our reality with Spirit moment by moment. Following nudges that lead us to our path, we’re always being shown the way. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction (newtons law!) and everything you do has an effect, whether you are conscious of it or not.
For me typing this, forgetting to drink water and eating a pizza to myself last night definitely has an effect on my physical body this morning.
When you nourish your physical body, your biochemical structure responds and secret happy hormones which directly affect our mood and mindset. Combine this with meditation, and by default, you’ll begin to feel “good” most of the time. Which will then have the power to utilize this potential energy to create desired outcomes.
I’ve watched people spontaneously remiss from stage 4 cancer by opening their hearts at a Joe Dispenza workshop. I’ve seen a man bound to a wheelchair for most of his life get out of his chair and begin dancing after 5 days of meditation and rewiring his brain. Miracles happen all the time. We just have to get out of our own way to experience them.
Do the work, and hand the rest over to the divine.
They Know This. And They’re Scared Because We’re Figuring It Out.
The few have always controlled the many in every culture. And they are getting scared that we are awakening to our own power now, too. When we are awakened, the systems that control us will crumble. And they’re scared.
Who are they? The system that runs on power, human suffering, greed. The system relies on us turning a blind eye because they’re controlling the narrative and we’re so busy being distracted to notice. Haven’t you ever questioned why our systems are the way they are? I know I have from a young age. Why our economies run as businesses rather than serving our highest good? Why are so many people hungry and sick and others have trillions of dollars?
Oh yeah, because the sick and poor are in survival consciousness, feeding the system that only few profit from.
This is the system that mass slaughters animals and annihilates our forests and natural resources in lieu of profit and convenience. We are simply numbers, profit margins, and guess what, they don’t care. Otherwise, there would not be so much human suffering on a mass scale on this planet. If they cared, when this pandemic happened the mainstream media would be teaching us mental health practices, how to nourish our bodies for immune health, and how to control our stress levels through breathwork.
But when we’re scared, and outsourcing our beliefs to the next best guess, we’re vulnerable and susceptible to control. And guess what, we’re back in the for-profit system of greed.
We are at a pivotal point in consciousness that has been predicted in many religious and spiritual texts alike. The time is now to wake up. How do you awaken? Slow down and pay attention. Spend some time every day meditating in silence. Connect to your emotions and see what they want to tell you. We’re so glued to our phones and constant dopamine spikes we’re oblivious to what’s happening right in front of us.
I started to write this post about what I learned in Tulum. But something else came through me that needed to be said. I don’t say a lot of things out of aversion to controversy and conflict. I don’t like to subject myself to criticism, but truth-seeking is part of my purpose on this planet. To awake and shake up the sleeping, zombie-like part of ourselves.
What happened to self-sovereignty?
We are forefitting our ability to act in accordance with autonomy and self-sovereignty. This needs to be said and understood because so many of us are being successfully blinded by a never-ending agenda that’s holding our freedom over our heads and saying, if you don’t sign up to modify your DNA and partake in this experiment, we will strip you of your job, your power, your ability to travel, your ability to connect with other people.
My doctor told me if she didn’t comply she couldn’t continue her practice of over 30 years. 9 years of schooling and 100s of patients that need her. In Canada, you are treated as a second-class citizen if you don’t comply. Can’t use the bus or even re-enter the country. What happened to autonomy over our bodies? Choice?
Why aren’t they publicly reporting the 600,000+ deaths directly related to this potion? Why aren’t they talking about or reporting these critical side effects? With permission, I’m sharing this experience from an acquaintance (28 years old, healthy) that had stroke-like symptoms after taking her first dose…
“This is TOO far for me. I have not spoken on this yet but I am not allowed to have my second v******, doctor’s orders. I spent 5 days in the hospital, following stroke like neurological symptoms I have never had in my life, with 2 discovered blood clots in my left lung 11 days after I had the first pf*zer v******. It has been determined that the shot was the most likely cause for this, even though it can’t be officially confirmed or denied. I believe the v****** is fine for most but there is ABSOLUTELY a percentage of us that it is negatively affecting. There are QUITE a few stories other than my own that have had similar very negative experiences. The negligence in doctor’s reporting these things pisses me off to no end. How can there be any valid data when no one is reporting the data. Just shrugging their shoulders and saying “maybe, maybe not” and going about their day. As someone who has been through hell regarding this, I can understand why certain people don’t want the
v****** or are waiting to see what happens. I am high risk for c**** now due to clotting (warned by multiple doctors) high risk for complications from the vaccine and I have NO idea when I’m going to be able to lead a normal life again, thanks to the negligence and selfishness of so many people. To say I’m beyond over the moon angry and upset doesn’t even begin to cover how I feel about the entirety of the situations that have occurred since 2020.”
Our rights are being stripped away from us in front of our eyes because we’re being manipulated to believe we’re bad people otherwise. People are angry and scared and turning against each other. This is what they want.
This post is a lobbying for UNITY. It’s not about right or wrong or good or bad. I love you and respect your ability to make decisions about your body. I encourage you however to dig deeper than what you’re being fed and told by your immediate circles. The time is now to rise up and transcend from the insanity that is controlling our planet.
Right now it’s more important than ever to keep your community close, your body and mind healthy, and control your own narrative through selective attention.
