On the Threshold of Change

In my recent article entitled Understanding the Shift, I spoke of a heightened change of perceptual awareness coming to mankind through an evolution of consciousness, caused by a rise in the vibrational rate of existence to a higher density; a higher polarity. With it, an inevitable change is taking place. All of the many distant Utopian ideals that we dare not dream, but wish in our hearts of hearts to be, are beginning to find their way forward. But in order for this ultimate change to occur, there are other things that need to fall away. There must be a destructive phase before construction can occur. To put it another way, devolution must run its course before evolution can take place. It is the way of change. The old and outmoded forms of negative consciousness, attitudes, values and polarized interaction with our fellow Souls must end. We must begin to see ourselves as Divine connected sparks of the eternal, not as separate beings.

We are in the nadir, the final transitional low point of a cyclical change. It is that period where the last of the negative cycle of energy burns itself out to make way for a new Golden Age of enlightenment and Spiritual existence. A major reason for this inevitable outcome is that we as a collective consciousness are awakening to our true purpose and remembering why we are here in this particular place, at this particular time. We are exponentially becoming conscious beacons of love energy, changing the nature of vibratory polarity throughout our world and each other. We are creating the change that we seek by virtue of our thoughts and a collective will for love to light the way. It is important that we universally believe this to be true. Know that you have the power within you to make this change. We are now becoming conscious co-workers and light workers with Divine Source. Our mission and goal is to become a beacon of love energy everyday. We are on the threshold of change because we are making the change. It is occurring in concert with our conscious desire to become the shift that we seek.

Those that would try to keep this wave of change from occurring are fighting a losing battle. Through fear, divisiveness, intimidation and hate mongering, these forces have tried (and for millennia succeeded) to make us forget who we truly are. We have fed into this illusion because for far too long we knew no better. But now, the veil is lifting and we are collectively growing every day in expanded awareness. This growing enlightened consciousness cannot and will not be held back. It is like trying to hold a large and ever-expanding ball of air underwater by force. Its true nature is to rise to the top and find freedom. It may be temporarily held back, but it will eventually break its shackles and rise to its true origins. Our true nature is to find our way back home…to Source.

As our collective awareness and desire for change grows with every passing day, you may begin to see the changes taking place around you; signs that this quantum shift is happening. During this process, it is important that you continue to be conscious cause and not unwilling effect. Focus on the good that you see. Send love to the negative that you may encounter. We are all conscious catalysts for this new wave of spiritual enlightenment. Embrace your true purpose. Send waves of love all around you each day. Know that it is having a direct and positive impact on you and your surroundings. Yes, we are on the threshold of change, but it is occurring in direct proportion to our collective will to make it so. You are no longer the spectator; you are a conscious participant in your Spiritual evolution. May the wind be at your back.

Background Awareness

Not too long ago I did a blog article entitled Situational Awareness, which described the exercise and practice of a heightened awareness that came as an outgrowth of the refined and growing vibrational rate currently affecting our world at this time, and the resulting shift in enlightenment this higher vibration causes. In the article, I described how “…one of the most fundamental gifts of awakening is that we start to become more and more aware of ourselves, our true purpose, and the myriad of things that are going on around us, both from the most obvious to the most subtle and discreet. The veils of illusion begin to drop away and we are left with clear, discernable and unfettered understandings of life in all of its dimensions.” While this situational awareness is an essential component of an active and engaged consciousness, there is another, even more basic aspect of this conscious awakening that is well worth mentioning. This fundamental, root consciousness has been described by some as Background Awareness.

Background awareness can be thought of as your default setting. When you have chanted your mantra, completed your asanas and Qigong, when you have done your Tai-Chi, completed your affirmations and aligned all your chakras, when you are connected to the universe and are ready to begin your day, then what? Your background awareness is your balanced (or unbalanced depending on preparation) center. This was described in great detail in my earlier blog, The Hub of Your Wheel. As you go throughout your day and experience the lessons put there to teach you, where do you invariably go to in your thoughts, and more importantly, your overall countenance? If you are in the balanced state, your background awareness should be one of love and gratitude, the God-centered awareness. For many people however, it is wrought with fear, anxiety, and worry. This is unfortunate, because as I and so many others have imparted, you create your universe by virtue of what you think; the resulting manifestations caused by the consistency of your psychic energy center.

Another way of looking at this is where does your idle mind go when rote activities are occuring or when all activities have ceased? Again, whatever is at the center of your wheel is what will be your central subconscious state and what will invariably manifest in your life. To reiterate the balanced state, your background awareness should be one of love and gratitude, the God-centered awareness. Within the realm of this balanced awareness, your situational awareness is much keener and NOW focused, allowing you to function in your daily life fully engaged while remaining in a happy, content, present, and self-empowered state regardless of outward circumstances. A balanced center allows one to be ready for any and all obstacles, and even more importantly, to begin to develop an innate sense of things even before they occur. A balanced background awareness taps into Divine awareness that is unrestricted by linear space-time and polarized energy. It allows you to become the channel that you as a light worker need to be in order to become most effective in your daily work. It will come provided you do the daily work necessary.

Living a balanced life with love and gratitude as your focus goes a long way on your personal spiritual journey of enlightenment and the subsequent collateral benefits that come from your being a conscious light worker for Source. When in this pure state, just your mere presence brings blessings to whatever you are doing and whoever may be in your general sphere of influence. You needn’t say a word, just be. Background awareness shows up in your auric field of energy, which permeates in all directions. The question is, do you choose to be the cause or effect in your life. I hope you choose conscious cause. Vigilance is key; a balanced background awareness is the foundation. Practice makes perfect. May you build a solid foundation for each and every day.
