(During this planetary turning point, remembering who you really are is essential for real change. This week's "A" word is awareness, so read on…)
A recent interview with Jane Fonda perfectly summed up these times: "The band-aid has been torn off and it's promoting robust awareness."
Have you been hiding under temporary band-aids of denial? Fingers in your ears, eyes closed, spouting lalalalalal? Pretending to be unaware only works for so long. Ultimately, whether you like it or not, you're forced to be aware.
Like all living creatures, humans have awareness.
Awareness connects you to yourself and others. It allows you to know we are all the same yet manifesting in unique ways, creating this grand orchestra of humanity.
You actually have three very different kinds of awareness: Fear-based, which is concerned with making sure you survive; Higher Consciousness, your spiritual evolution from fear to love; and Logic-based, the “middle man” trying to figure out the input from the other two. (A daunting task!)
MINI HISTORY LESSON
Eons ago, early humans evolved from their “primitive” state with the arrival of reasoning.
The spin-off result was the ability to ponder our own existence. We started reflecting on our thoughts, contemplating our past, and imagining possible future situations.
We were able to choose alternative actions which morphed into inventiveness and creativity. We figured out logical solutions to protect ourselves, which inspired new ways of existing.
This new awareness allowed us to value people, things and events which created deeper emotions. Unfortunately, negative attributes such as selfishness, greed and possessiveness, generated hate and more violence.
All of this birthed a result we’re still reeling from today: Anxiety.
Ahhh, the price of evolving.
THE NEXT EVOLUTION
After getting this far, humans are now in the middle of another evolutionary step: Awareness of inner-awareness.
This translates into being conscious of where your awareness is coming from. Or, being able to determine if your awareness is from fear, logic or love.
Ultimately, this evolution strives to reach Higher Awareness, making choices from wisdom and love.
To get to Higher Consciousness means first recognizing and communicating with your fear-based consciousness. You won't get there by acting out, pretending it doesn't exist, or using spiritual bypass techniques.
The first step is observing yourself, noticing when a button is pushed.
What's a button, really? A negative reaction from something unhealed being triggered from your subconscious past.
Next, determine what your reaction is really about, what it symbolizes.
Example: "I'm so pissed that my spouse didn't take the trash out" could symbolize "I'm not feeling loved and supported."
Choosing that awareness immediately diffuses the button so you won't feel the need to take harmful action from your re-action.
Your trash-avoiding spouse has simply awakened subconscious programmed beliefs insisting that: Relationships never support me; love never shows up how I want.
The next step is shifting focus to your Higher Consciousness.
What is your wise, intuitive discernment, trying to communicate? What’s the Higher lesson, the wake-up call allowing you to choose from love rather than fear?
On a Higher level, your spouse (subconsciously, from their own Higher Consciousness) is trying to remind you that taking or not taking the trash out doesn’t mean a thing about being loved since it knows that love doesn’t have to look a certain way.
Since that level of awareness has been pushed away by your louder, fear-based consciousness, it might be challenging to hear it. Be patient and persistent. (I can help with that)
Having this high-level awareness starts dissolving those victim feelings.
And, if enough of us shift awareness in this way, it can change the world. Really.
During this time of many band-aids being ripped off, it's urgent to recognize and evolve past fear-based, reactive nature. Granted, it’s a global effort to embody Higher Consciousness, but with enough “Hundredth Monkeys” walking the path, it can, and is, happening.
With these wake-up calls, it's time to hear the alarm clock beeping loudly. There's no time to hit the snooze button.
