A 4-Step Guide to Healing Emotional Trauma

The ability to manage your emotions is absolutely crucial in the game of life. Many of us spend so much time living in a state of disease, that it practically becomes our typical way of being. And can you blame us? With so many problems in modern society, even just the stress of managing your finances alone can be enough to make you fall into a depression if you don’t know how to properly manage your emotions.

This is also one of the topics of occulted information that is not consciously taught in schools or by our parents, probably because they never really learned it themselves–they just figured it out as they went along in life (or probably never figured it out at all).

So let me just stop here for a minute to say something. Knowing how to do this is really damn important. This information could literally change your life, so please pay attention.

It’s nothing you don’t already know, per se, but when you become fully conscious of how emotional processing actually works, you will be able to use this method like running anti-virus software on your computer, and once you become practiced at it, you won’t even have to consciously think about doing it any more, it will just become second nature–like knowing how to go to the bathroom–only in this case, dumping your emotional garbage.

So here is how it works. Let’s say someone close to you recently passed away, and you’re having trouble dealing with it. Every time you think about that person, you fall into a depression, an abysmal feeling of hopelessness knowing that you will never be able to see that person again during this lifetime.

This feeling of despair is so overwhelming that it paralyzes you. You can’t go out, you can’t get out of bed, can’t exercise, whatever. It’s just too hard to deal with the pain.

This feeling could also come from other situations like going through a break-up with a romantic partner or having something humiliating happen to you in public. Whatever the case, the basic process for dealing with it is the same.

Step 1: Identify that You are Emotionally Disturbed

Before any healing can be done, you must first realize that you are not feeling well. This may seem obvious, but for someone who is commonly emotionally disturbed, it may not even be noticeable because you’ve become so numb that you’ve gotten used to it.

You will only have effectively identified this problem once you have officially become self-aware of it. Usually people just allow their emotions to run them blindly without any level of mindfulness, and that is simply not an effective, efficient, and responsible way to handle yourself. It’s literally what children do when they have temper tantrums–they scream and cry until they get tired out and pass out.

Well, guess what? There are plenty of adults who still do the same thing. Maybe they don’t scream and cry like a little kid, but they complain and nag and take it out on other people, or just let it stay pent up inside of them, which is actually much worse.

The method I’ll be teaching you is basically how to have a controlled temper tantrum–a way to release your pain in a mature and efficient manner.

Step 2: Confront Your Situation

Once you’ve become self-aware of your emotions and feelings, you are now in a position to confront your problem. This step is typically where most people falter, because they are too afraid to face their problems head-on. This is also where most people resort to their destructive habits for pain relief, such as drinking, smoking, binge eating, playing violent video games, masturbating, etc.

Do these “band-aids” actually help? Sure, they provide temporary relief, but what happens later on? If these problems aren’t sufficiently taken care of through the process of healing, they can literally stay inside of people for the rest of their lives.

And people say cigarettes, car accidents, and cancer are the top killers in the world.

Well, guess what? That’s not even remotely true. Stress is the biggest killer there ever was and ever will be. It’s the cause of every problem known in modern society.

Have you noticed that cultures with low-stress lifestyles have little to no suicides and longer lifespans? Gee, I wonder why!

So this is the moment of truth. You are aware that you have a problem, and either you can handle it like a child by ignoring it or taking it out on someone else, or you can handle it like an adult and make the choice to properly heal it.

The fact that most people are not able to choose the path of healing is the primary reason why planet Earth is still in a developmental retard. We have 20, 30, and 40-year-old so-called adults still taking out their anger and frustration from childhood on innocent people. Do not be one of these emotional retards! You are better than that.

Step 3: Create a Space of Healing

Okay, so at this point you’ve recognized that you have a problem by becoming self-aware of it, and you’ve made the courageous decision to confront it and heal it. Congratulations, you’re now officially more emotionally mature than most other people on the planet!

So to create a space of healing, here is what I recommend:

1. Retreat to a place of sanctuary. Turn off the TV, get away from noisy people, and go somewhere that you feel safe and private. If you had to, you could even do this in a public bathroom or in your car, anywhere that you can feel secure and private.

2. Connect with nature. Light a candle, take a bath, go out for a walk in the woods, or do another task that helps you get centered and connected with nature. Natural elements like water and fire help to relax us and get us out of our heads. If you’re not at home and don’t have access to these things, you could just go outside or open a window to feel the wind.

3. Raise your vibration. Play music or use your own rhythmic breathing to raise your vibration and connect with your spirit. I personally listen to music a lot, so I’m very connected with particular songs that trigger my emotions. I’ve built a playlist for myself that I use whenever I need to do some intensive healing–most of the songs being from certain periods of my life that contain nostalgic value. Music isn’t necessary for everyone, but I find it very helpful, so I recommend it.

Step 4: Initiate the Process of Healing

So now you’ve created a peaceful environment for yourself. Maybe you’re lying in the bath tub with some candles lit and soft music playing. Maybe you’re sitting on the dock at a lake, a rock out in the woods, or on your bed.

Focus on the source of the pain until you are able to elicit an emotional response from yourself. If you’re grieving a deceased loved one, use a photo of them to help you connect with the memory of them until you completely break down.

If you’re doing this right, you should end up crying like a blubbering baby. Do this for as long as you need until you literally cannot cry another tear. Get it all out, all of it! Every last drop until you are hollow inside and have hit rock bottom (thank you, Fight Club).

It’s in this space of being that transformation (personal alchemy) occurs. It’s the process of shifting from one level of consciousness to another, and it is necessary in order to evolve on a spiritual level.

So now you may be thinking, “Damn it, Skyler! I’m a grown man or woman, and I haven’t cried since I was a kid. Crying’s for babies, and I’m an adult!”

Well, let me put it this way. Crying is the most effective method for healing because it covers all of your bodies (mental, spiritual, physical, emotional) at the same time. In fact, I’ll even venture to say that this is precisely what the function of crying actually is–a built-in method to facilitate the process of healing for the biological vessel, not just a way to express an emotional outburst, like we’ve always thought.

So this changes the perception of crying now, doesn’t it? Why do you think it’s so prominent in movies and professional actors are paid millions of dollars to do it on command with complete authenticity?

Because that’s where the magic of transformation lies. That’s how characters in stories progress–they go through the motions of their story arc, and once they hit rock bottom, there’s an emotional catharsis, and afterward they come out a changed person.

Conclusion

So this is the method for healing that I personally use and recommend to others. Of course, there are other ways of doing it, but I think this is the most efficient and effective method (at least that I know of).

If you can’t cry, then you still have a lot of personal work to do. I know this is difficult for most men who have been told their entire lives to suck it up, but if you want to be an emotionally healthy and mature individual, then you need to be able to heal yourself, and crying is the key to the process.

This will not only make life easier for you, but it’s the secret to living longer. If you can effectively combat stress, then you are preventing disease. Simple as that!

The Book that Changed My Life

Back in late 2010, after I had left my 9-5 job working at a software company in Baltimore, I officially entered a new transitional stage in my life. Fed up with the corporate slave routine of monotonous work Monday to Friday, party until I’m dead on the weekend to take my mind off work, then go back to work every Monday to repeat the process all over again, I knew I had to make a change in my life so that I wouldn’t end up in this situation again.

At this time, I had started to become more interested in subjects such as self-development and spirituality, since I had a hole in my soul that I needed to repair, and I was seeking guidance. Sound familiar at all? This “weekend warrior” lifestyle is very common among many people in society today, and it is truly, as I look back on it now, a serious disease.

Is there anything wrong with enjoying yourself on the weekend or partying every now and then? Obviously not, but when you are stuck in a vicious cycle of self-destructive behavior, this lifestyle takes on a different purpose: to escape, rather than enhance your life.

Since I never got into trouble and my actions didn’t negatively affect my work status or other people in my life, my situation wasn’t noticeably destructive to anyone other than myself, and being the norm for my peers as well, I never took it seriously as a real issue until one day I realized, after going through a rough break-up with my girlfriend at the time, that I needed to turn my life around and finally face the demons that stirred inside of me.

While I’ve read numerous books on self-development and spirituality, there is one in particular that had a profound impact on my life, eventually serving as the inspiration and catalyst for my spiritual awakening and decision to start the Freedom Earth community. This book was The Ringing Cedars Series, Book 1: Anastasia by Vladimir Megre.

Here is the product description from Amazon to give you a sense of what it’s about:

“Anastasia”, the first book of the Ringing Cedars Series, tells the story of entrepreneur Vladimir Megre’s trade trip to the Siberian taiga in 1995, where he witnessed incredible spiritual phenomena connected with sacred ‘ringing cedar’ trees. He spent three days with a woman named Anastasia who shared with him her unique outlook on subjects as diverse as gardening, child-rearing, healing, Nature, sexuality, religion and more. This wilderness experience transformed Vladimir so deeply that he abandoned his commercial plans and, penniless, went to Moscow to fulfill Anastasia’s request and write a book about the spiritual insights she so generously shared with him. True to her promise this life-changing book, once written, has become an international best-seller and has touched hearts of millions of people world-wide.

I’ve talked briefly about The Ringing Cedars series and Anastasia’s teachings before, particularly regarding the concept of the Science of Imagery, but I’ve never gone into great depth about what makes this book (and the rest of the series) so powerful, special, and outstanding among others in the field.

Anastasia, whether she’s a real person or not, serves as the most advanced human being on the planet, and due to her natural upbringing in the Siberian wilderness, the source of her universal wisdom is completely intuitive, unfiltered, and unaffected by the fear-based conditioning and negative mental patterns that we adopt from living in modern society.

In other words, since she was never exposed to the indoctrination, manipulation, and brainwashing into the government-controlled capitalistic system that we all grew up in and continue to live in today, she has a completely different perspective on life, and exhibits natural human behavior, which is based on planetary service and spiritual connection.

She simply does not have the same baggage that we do. She has no existential angst, need for external gratification or ego stroking. Just like a tree, tiger, or sun she performs her objective duty of planetary service day in and day out without the dissociative, push-me pull-me mental struggle that we all endure, since we’ve been taught to look outside of ourselves to find the answers to life’s big questions, acceptance, and even love.

Anastasia is the most powerful teacher on the planet because she walks the talk in a way that any other teacher who lives in modern society simply cannot due to their conditioning of growing up in the system. As hard as we try to leave our old Matrix selves behind, the patterns are ingrained in our personalities, and it takes a life-long commitment (if it’s even possible at all) to overwrite those old patterns and completely transform ourselves.

We can certainly make a lot of progress and experience great change in ourselves (I certainly have come a long way from who I was before), but unless we fully dedicate ourselves to this goal (and I don’t mean just reading some books or going to seminars), we really just become more advanced versions of the same people we were before, but still have the same old negative habits buried underneath just with a shiny new exterior.

Anastasia is what took me to the next level of my development, serving as my initiation into 6D consciousness (the level of the higher self or extraterrestrial contact), while The Law of One material expanded on and explained the same concepts from another viewpoint.

These two sources combined became my foundation of universal knowledge, and of course, later on I discovered Dr. Georgi Stankov’s work on light body process (LBP) and ascension, which helped to bring everything full circle in my esoteric studies.

If Anastasia was my inspiration for Freedom Earth, Georgi was my wayshower and mentor, who gave me the courage and support to share my experiences with others, and pursue my dream of freedom, health, and prosperity for all people on the planet.

So that is how the book Anastasia changed my life. Maybe it could do the same for you?

Are We Living in a Post-Apocalyptic World?

Yesterday in my article, Why Do We Suffer?, I briefly discussed the idea of planet Earth currently being in a state of post-apocalypse, and in this article I am going to explore this concept more in-depth.

As I mentioned, I became aware of this idea myself while watching Mark Passio’s presentation on Natural Law, and you can hear him talk about this concept at the 2:54:30 mark of the Part 3 video.

To start things off, let’s define the word apocalypse so that we are thinking on the same page without the distortions of the pop culture doom and gloom depiction of it.

This is the apocalypse slide from Mark’s presentation, and as you can see, what apocalypse actually means etymologically has nothing to do with the major doom and gloom and catastrophic scenarios presented in the Book of Revelation or in Hollywood movies and television shows, but merely to reveal, take out of hiding, or de-occult.

If you ask most people what they think apocalypse means it is highly probable they will say “the end of the world” or reference something like Cormac McCarthy’s novel The Road, which is actually not post-apocalyptic according to this definition, but more like post-catastrophic, cataclysmic, or disaster.

Of course modern dictionaries will tell you differently, and just looking at the definition Google provides, you’ll see:

a·poc·a·lypse
noun

  1. the complete final destruction of the world, esp. as described in the biblical book of Revelation.
  2. an event involving destruction or damage on an awesome or catastrophic scale.

So when did the apocalypse actually occur, then? If we really need to set a date in linear time, perhaps we could denote December 21, 2012, but really you could say the unveiling of the dark agenda started to happen on a mass scale much earlier in 2011 when Occupy Wall Street began, and if we’re still attributing a doom and gloom disaster scenario to being the official denotion of the apocalypse, I’d say 9/11 was it, and ever since then we have been in a post-apocalyptic state.

Perhaps that is a myopic perspective (as I am an American), since many other much worse catastrophes have occurred throughout the globe in the past decade, but that event was absolutely a trigger for the initiation of a police state in America and the rest of the world by the globalists, and has a particular significance since it was a manmade plot and not a natural disaster (although who knows these days with HAARP).

Anyway, other than the rapid societal collapse that has occurred in the wake of 9/11 (okay, let’s just use that date for now) being sufficient evidence of being a state of post-apocalypse, if we look to pop culture at what is popular in the collective consciousness, the television show The Walking Dead is by far not only the most popular current show, but as I’ve heard in the media, the most popular TV show ever.

In a previous article I wrote last year called How to Gauge the Focus of the Collective: Watch the Trends in the Film Industry, I listed off several post-apocalyptic (post-disaster) films that were being released, including The Hunger Games: Catching FireThis is the EndWorld War ZStar Trek Into DarknessOblivion, and After Earth, all of which depicted doom and gloom disaster scenarios and were highly successful in the box office.

Studios only release movies that are relevant to what audiences want to see, so obviously the concept of post-apocalyptic disaster is what’s on the public mind, because it is what we are actually living through right now.

I don’t think most people realize this because they are still living in modern homes with their power on, and their way of life hasn’t changed too much, or in other words because “it’s not in their backyard,” but if they were to do some research about what’s going on with other people in the world, they’d see how destitute the situation is, as thousands of people are now living in tent cities across America, and I’m sure even worse conditions in other parts of the world.

The last point I want to make is that we are currently caught in the middle of the shift between the previous astrological era, the Age of Pisces, and the new era, the Age of Aquarius. The knowledge of the dark agenda has been unveiled on a critical mass scale, yet we still have not fully transitioned into the next phase of the evolutionary cycle, thus we are caught in a post state rather than fully engaged in a new one.

The transition is gradually making way, and inevitably we will cross the threshold to the other side, no longer in a post state, but fully entered into the next era, which according to theory/prophecy will be one of global prosperity and harmony as we shift into our rightful place as a transgalactic society.

Higher levels of disclosure will come with this, but first we have to get through this stage of the process, and like I said yesterday, just do what you can to endure and survive. Like a baby being born, there are labor pains along the way, and that is what we’re experiencing as a society as the old power structure leaves the scene kicking and screaming and the new one based on abundance and freedom arrives.

Why Do We Suffer?

In Part 3 of Mark Passio’s presentation on Natural Law he mentions that the reason there is so much suffering among the people of this planet is due to self-loathing, which is ultimately a result of abandonment issues. Obviously not everyone has been abandoned by their Earth parents, but what we all do have in common is the feeling of cosmic abandonment which is instilled upon us when we incarnate into the physical realm.

The trauma of this experience is extreme, and it is buried in the subconscious in order for us to be able to function normally in life, although it still greatly affects us if we do not work to heal it and accept our situation.

In order to heal this trauma, we must confront it head-on by doing personal spiritual work, and actively reconnect with nature in order to remember that we are not alone and have not been abandoned.

Through the veil of illusion, we have come to believe that nature (the spiritual realm) is separate from the physical realm, and thus we have been disconnected from nature by the act of incarnating into the physical world.

What we need to remember is that the physical and spiritual realms exist simultaneously, as we are multidimensional beings existing with a veiled perception of All-That-Is.

So have we truly been abandoned? We feel very alone and isolated on this planet, and without physical support from our star families we feel we have been cut off and left to fend for ourselves. Of course this is true to an extent on the physical level, but through extra-sensory perception we have the ability to “phone home.” We are all made of energy, and thus we are all one, and never disconnected or abandoned from nature.

I know that sounds like a bit of a cop-out answer, because being physical is a very real experience, and it isn’t fair to expect people to always remember the bigger picture throughout daily life and to remain connected and upbeat when we are surrounded by so much wrongdoing and darkness on this planet.

I know it isn’t always easy to stay positive, but through practice and discipline it becomes easier to maintain a state of being that is connected with nature, and that is really the only way to deal with the harsh reality of this world.

It is also vital to remember that each one of us chose to come to this physical plane in order to do spiritual cleansing work, and we were not simply left here by our star families. We are volunteers who came here to assist in the ascension process by incarnating into this dimension, but through being veiled we have forgotten this fact, meanwhile becoming assimilated into modern culture, straying further and further away from our true nature.

We are here to share the universal wisdom of Natural Law and to assist others in their process of awakening, and no one ever said it would an easy job. We were granted permission to perform this duty because we were capable of handling it, but I suspect the reality of the situation turned out to be much worse than we originally thought, which has caused much more slower progress on the ground.

I think the best advice I can really give to anyone is to simply endure. Just by being here in this dimension you are doing the job you vowed to do, and expecting much more than that at this point isn’t realistic.

If you can step out from your current perspective and look at this time from a future standpoint, you will see that this is an extremely difficult time to exist on this planet, as we are actively living in a post-apocalyptic world. This was another point Mark made in his presentation. The veil has been lifted, as most everyone is aware of the evil on this planet, and I would say the official date of the apocalypse really was December 21st, 2012. While “nothing happened” on that date, critical mass was achieved, and thus the decision was made for it to be a cut-off point paradigmatically. Ever since then we have been living in a world where most everyone knows of the truth of slavery, at least on a basic level, and yet the situation is still ongoing, since we have not fully transitioned into the next paradigm yet.

So while we may not have physically reached the level of a “Mad Max” post-apocalyptic world yet, we are in fact already there mentally, so give yourself some credit–you’re surviving in a post-apocalyptic world–that’s not exactly the easiest thing to do!

Becoming Whole Again

Last year I remember reading an interesting article that listed some of the top most common fears among people, and the one that struck me the most was the fear of achieving freedom.

Have we become so conditioned as slaves to our minds that we actually fear the idea of being liberated from that same prison?

When you think about it, it’s not really that difficult to comprehend. Thinking of the famous prison movie by Frank Darabont, The Shawshank Redemption, there is a character named Brooks who is an old man and has been in prison for many years. When he’s eventually released into the outside world, he is so used to prison life that being out there is too much to bear for him, causing him to eventually take his own life.

This scenario is no different to the way our own conditioning works. When we become accustomed to a particular way of thinking, resorting to negative thoughts when we are under stress, we tend to bury ourselves with grief and despair.

So how this can be countered? How can we overcome the obstacle of our own self-sabotaging thoughts?

The answer lies in first accepting that the thoughts are valid. Those thoughts have just as much the right to exist as any other ones, and they are not to be disregarded. It is not about trying to brush them aside and pretend that they don’t exist, because that is simply untrue, and does not serve you. What is more effective is to allow those thoughts to flow through you openly and honestly, allowing them to run their course, but at the same time remaining focused on the truth within yourself—that those thoughts are not who you really are, and are external to the core of your higher self.

That fire that burns inside of you and makes you feel warm and fully self-expressive of the love that you have to share is your greatest asset and ally. It is the passion within you to make the world a better place and bring people together that will guide you through the times in which you are faced with the greatest fear, hardship, and doubt.

It is the voice of the soul that rings out loud and clear when you are being authentic, with no agenda other than to express your feelings openly and honestly to relate with others and make a difference in their lives.

That is the source of true power, and it conquers the agents of fear. It cannot be defeated because it is the strongest force in the universe, and when you are connected with it, you become an instrument of it, no longer the conditioned human being that you once were, but pure light and love that shines through the darkness.

This concept works in exactly the same way when it comes to dealing with other people. Groups such as the Occupy Movement have adopted the slogan of “We are the 99%,” which creates division between the “us and them” of the people and those who are part of the establishment. I certainly have spoken in this way many times myself, but now I know better than to support that perspective.

Obviously, when we’re looking at the 3D picture there are individuals who are supporting the agenda to perpetuate suffering and slavery on this planet, but how does singling them out and blaming them actually help create a solution?

Of course it is always best to know the truth of what is going on behind the veil, and that’s when we get into the so-called conspiracy theory topics, but ultimately, progress can only be made through each individual achieving harmony within themselves, and sharing that way of being with others.

To put it simply, the only way to end the class war between the 99% and 1% is to stop perpetuating the division altogether, creating 100%. This comes with remembering that, despite what those people in the government or military do to serve their own agendas, they are still part of the human family and have every right to be here on this planet and do everything that they are doing than anyone else. That is what having free will means.

This statement of acceptance may be difficult for many people to swallow who are die-hard protesters against the establishment, but I simply ask you to think about who the real enemy is. Is it the people out there who are doing bad things to us, or is it our own faults for allowing it to occur in the first place by becoming complacent?

In the end, all you can look at are the numbers. If 1% of the population is successfully controlling 99%, then the 99% must have really dropped the ball at some point.

We are one big human family on this planet, and sadly, our greatest achievement will be to simply get along with one another. That means accepting the 1% as part of your family and having compassion for them. They have become disconnected from this harmony, and are severely ill, compensating for their lack of love with others by seeking power over others.

If we can simply open our hearts to them, then we can end this war without bloodshed, and even if they are unwilling to accept our love, then at least we have tried, and perhaps a seed will be planted only to sprout in the future.

Maybe this is impossible, and absolute destruction through cataclysm is the only possible solution, but I choose to think otherwise, and I’m sure you do, too.

Let us end this suffering by becoming a whole family again. But, of course, that can only happen after first becoming whole within ourselves.

The Power of Choice

A common question many people ask is when are the big events going to occur? When is the world going to change?

Obviously no one can provide a particular date. We can prophetize all we want, but ultimately it’s a dynamic situation that is always changing according to the choices made by the collective.

The promises of disclosure, redistribution of wealth, release of new technologies, etc. are on the horizon but first we must free our minds from the mental prison of the Matrix.

As we’ve seen over the past few years, there has been a huge uprising of protests around the world, and that disorder leads to desperate measures from the establishment, ultimately resulting in the increase of entropy until the bubble of the old system bursts and the flood of revolutionary energies encompasses the entire planet, crashing the system.

This is the way the ascension process has always worked throughout history, and it will inevitably happen again. Because as I’ve mentioned before, time is not really linear, but cyclical, and this current cycle has to end at some point.

We have learned from enough broken promises by now that relying on physical dates is not realistic and cannot be predicted, only proposed as a possibility that can manifest if the proper support via the agreement of the collective is provided.

That is why so many dates have passed by as uneventful. It does not mean that the forecaster was wrong, simply that the appropriate requirements were not fulfilled, thus it does come to pass.

It’s no different than the weatherman saying there’s a certain percentage chance of precipitation. It may occur or it may not if the appropriate requirements are fulfilled.

So what can you do to help move things along? Support the reality that you desire through your personal choices, or what I like to call them, energy investments.

The New Earth we are wishing for already exists as an idea, it simply needs the proper support to become a reality.

This means believing it is possible. Not getting caught up in fear and grief. Not buying into the propaganda that the mainstream media feeds you.

Consider these two different sets of beliefs and see what reality is created through the statements:

Freedom will never happen. Nothing will ever change. The system is insurmountable. Nobody cares. We are doomed to be slaves in FEMA camps. Prepare for the worst.

OR

We are making great progress every day. More people are awake than ever before in history. The old way is ending and the new is setting in. We are very close to achieving freedom. Life is good and it’s only getting better.

Can you prove that either of these perspectives are true or not? Of course not, because they’re completely subjective according to each person’s experiences and filters.

So, the question comes down to: Which worldview do you WANT to believe in? This doesn’t mean wear rose-tinted glasses and disregard facts, it simply means where does your intention lie.

As I mentioned in my previous article, gratitude grounds us in the present moment, and that is where the true power lies. In this moment, here and now, you can choose the reality of freedom.

Whether or not you do, though, is completely up to you.

The Key to Enlightenment

Typically when we think about enlightenment, we think of it as this long and arduous cycle of death and rebirth, but it is actually very simple.

We are born as enlightened beings, but through the conditioning of modern society, we quickly forget this fact, replacing it with other negative beliefs.

So the reason enlightenment has seemingly become difficult to achieve is because we have to go through a lot more work to deprogram ourselves before we can remember our natural way of being.

Rather than discussing the process of deprogramming, I want to cut straight to the key of enlightenment, which transcends all programming, and that is gratitude.

When you are completely present in the here and now moment, fully conscious and grateful for your opportunity to be incarnated, your intention immediately returns to your natural state of being as an infinite aspect of the universe.

Just like when you were a child and had your entire life ahead of you to fulfill your greatest hopes and dreams, when you simply immerse yourself in gratitude, you find solace in the present moment, allowing all troubles of the past and future to fade away.

When the purpose of life becomes nothing more than achieving accomplishments, we lose sight of the beauty of the present moment, disconnected from the sensory details of the physical world.

Whether it’s a painting on the wall, the feeling of the wind blowing through your hair, or the smell of blooming flowers, it’s easy to become caught up with the fast-paced nature of the modern world, too busy to notice the little things.

Gratitude grounds us in the present moment, so that we open our eyes to that which we normally don’t see. It is a practice and philosophy that will not only change your life, but the entire world.

The Truth About Time

I remember back in pre-school when I was taught how to tell time on an analog clock. There was the big hand for the minutes, the small hand for the hours, and the second hand for—well, you know the rest. I remember I always had trouble with mathematical subjects, whether it was as difficult as algebra or simple as telling time. It just didn’t “click” for me right away, and it took me longer to understand it than others, but eventually I got it, and of course it’s second nature now.

I’m sure you can think back and remember all that time you spent as a kid being programmed—I mean being “taught” in school how to become obsessed with time so that it would eventually dominate your entire life to the point of believing, truly believing that one day you will “run out” of time and die. That’s it, your life’s over because the clock said so!

Have you ever considered the possibility that linear time doesn’t actually exist? That it’s just a manmade invention that limits our beliefs of how long we can live in order to control the population of the planet? Yeah, I know that sounds very cynical and conspiratorial, but let me explain further.

Does your dog have any concept of 5:00 AM or 5:00 PM? Does your dog look at the clock and think, “Oh, it’s 6:00 PM, time for dinner!” Of course not, all your dog knows is that sometimes it’s light outside and sometimes it’s dark outside. There’s no concept of being on time or late, only the present moment.

Now let’s take a child who grows up in the woods completely secluded from modern society. There’s no watches or clocks, only the cycle of the sun. So while there is a sense of time as in change in cycle, there is no sense of different months or years or measurements. It’s basically just like the movie Groundhog Day—the same day over and over again, the only difference being what the child does in each moment. There’s no being late, no missing out, and certainly no running out of time.

If we lived in a utopian society, we would live forever–or as long as we wanted to because there would be no energizing, thus manifesting, of death, disease, or decay. There would only be the choice to pass on out of one’s current body once they wanted to move on from this dimension of existence.

To put it simply, our beliefs control our reality 100%. If you believe that you are poor to the point that it becomes real for you, then you will be poor. If you believe that you’re sick, then you will be sick. It’s very simple logic actually.

So from the examples above it is apparent that time is not actually linear, but is cyclical in nature. The concept of linear time is a manmade construct that we have been conditioned to believe and thus realize since we were young children, and that is what keeps us enslaved in the third dimension. It works hand in hand with our spoken and written languages, which also slow down our process of creation.

For example, take these two sentences:

  1. “I will take the trash out later.”
  2. “I am taking the trash out now.”

Do you see how the first sentence is completely inactive and stagnant, while the second is active and creative? Imagine how your life would change if everything you wanted to accomplish went from being “I will do it later” to “I am doing it now”. It would be, well, life-changing, wouldn’t it?

So pay attention to your thoughts and words and how they limit you. The “time” in which you do something always controls the occurrence of the creation, as it is nothing more than focused thought manifested into reality.

How to Change the World

Freedom Earth is an online community dedicated to consciousness development and free living. Our goal is to raise awareness about the problems that face our world, and work toward establishing a more healthy, conscious, and connected society.

So what does all of that mean exactly? Let’s break it down.

Consciousness development is a term used to describe the study, practice, or process of achieving higher consciousness or spiritual enlightenment.

The Wikipedia entry for higher consciousness states:

Higher consciousness is generally regarded as a developed state of consciousness in which attention is improved, refined and enhanced—and aspects of the mind (such as thought, and perception) are transcended. It is considered thus to be a higher level of consciousness relative to ordinary consciousness, in the sense that a greater awareness of reality is achieved. In a secular context, higher consciousness is usually associated with exceptional control over one’s mind and will, intellectual and moral enlightenment, and profound personal growth. In a spiritual context, it may also be associated with transcendence, spiritual enlightenment, and union with the divine.

Free living can be described as simply living without restrictions. This can be in the form of financial independence, freedom of speech and self-expression, and free access to information, education, and resources.

What problems do we face in our world? Well, all you have to do is take one look at r/worldnews or any other global news source for that matter and you’ll see just how much suffering, injustice, and violence is occurring on the planet. Whether it’s a war in the Middle East, financial greed, destruction of the environment, or violation of human rights it’s all equally disturbing and part of the Big Problem that I will discuss later in this essay.

The last part of the mission statement says “working toward establishing a more healthy, conscious, and connected society,” and that means being of service to others in guiding them in their path of awakening to higher consciousness.

With greater awareness comes reconnection with natural human behavior, values, and abilities, or in other words, the more aware you are, the more in touch with your natural state you become, and that will reflect from your internal belief system out to your external appearance and lifestyle.

Let’s face it: Modern society has strayed from natural human behavior. The majority of our media is completely fear-based or negatively polarized and is designed to keep those who digest it locked in a primal state of being that has to do with base level desires and survival instincts. In other words, that pop song you’re listening to or action movie you’re watching keeps you locked in a state of fear, angst, or base level desire, radiating the seductive influences of sex, service to self, and greed, and just like that piece of chocolate cake or double cheeseburger on the menu, you know it’s not healthy for you to indulge it, but you can’t help yourself because it’s so damn seductive.

Well, of course it is! It’s purposefully designed that way so you’ll spend your time and money on it, but here’s what you have to remember: you always have a choice. You can never forget that. The controllers of capitalism depend on you being weak-minded enough to make bad decisions, but that doesn’t have to happen.

The bottom line is this: Your greatest ability is your power to choose, because the entire world is based on agreement. When enough people make the choice to stop energizing a particular idea, that idea ceases to exist. This can be applied to anything. It’s how fads come in and stay popular for a while and then die out. It’s how certain styles of clothing or music or art have their time and then fade out into history.

Your choices and collectively our choices are what perpetuate ignorance and all of the problems that we face as a society, but guess what? Just as we have the power to destroy through our choices, we also have the power to create. Obviously this is nothing new, but it is so important–it is everything. It’s what the forces behind the Big Problem depend on to keep them in power.

So what is the Big Problem, then? It’s not any other person or group. It’s really not the wars, violence, greed, or corruption. It’s the agents of fear, and particularly apathy. It’s the voice inside your head that says “I don’t care. I don’t want to. It’s not that important. Someone else will do it. I’m not qualified. I’m too young. I’m not smart enough,” etc. It’s the years of conditioning that you have undergone throughout your life that has disconnected you from your true nature and in its place installed a slave to capitalism and fear.

The system wasn’t designed to be self-empowering. The system was designed to breed a population of human beings with a built-in self-sabotaging mechanism so that they will self-police themselves and obey authority.

Because think about it: If you wanted to control the world, how could you possibly police billions of people on your own? Maybe with androids or something, but even that could be circumvented.

The best way to control an entire population is to program their minds to be self-sabotaging so that anytime they have thoughts of breaking free they will be reigned in by their own thoughts of fear and thus abandon their attempts.

This is further perpetuated by the rest of society also being programmed to self-police and self-sabotage so even if an individual is powerful enough to circumvent his or her own programming, there is a second line of defense in his or her family, friends, and community, followed by a third line of defense in the media to make absolutely sure any thoughts of freedom are abandoned and the system is reinforced.

Unfortunately, the first line of defense, self-sabotage, is usually enough, thus making each individual his or her own worst enemy, forced with the need to conform in order to feel secure. As one goes through the process of awakening, the power of self-expression is gradually restored, and the system’s lines of defense become powerless. That is why “they”, as in the conscious perpetuators of the system, work so hard to keep people asleep. An awakened populace would easily overpower the controllers and destroy the system, so they use tactics of manipulation to keep people disconnected.

These tactics of manipulation involve switching out natural concepts with synthetic/corrupt ones. This involves every aspect of life, including food that is genetically modified; water that is fluoridated; information that is either filtered for a particular agenda or hidden; education that puts children into demoralizing prison-like schools; colleges that are institutions of debt; trade that is based on fiat currency with no intrinsic value; government that doesn’t serve the people, only the corporations; entertainment that is propaganda; and so on. The entire purpose of this bait and switch is to create a thought-based synthetic reality that can easily be controlled, or in other words, substitute a natural lifestyle with an artificial one to keep people disconnected from nature and their full potential.

So what is a natural lifestyle? What is natural human behavior? I’ve talked a lot about this scheme to disconnect people from nature, but what does that actually mean?

To be natural is to be unmanipulated, pure, or organic. Fear is not a natural way of being–it is learned and conditioned through one’s experiences. It is commonly believed that human nature is cruel, but that is another deception. Are babies cruel? Do they have any type of agenda? No, they just act naturally as their biology tells them to. It is only when we grow up and learn certain types of behavior from our environment and then mimic it that it becomes accessible to us.

That is why it is so vital for the controllers to immerse as many people as possible in a synthetic environment. Human beings become disconnected in synthetic environments because they are more dense and thus purity of thought is much more difficult to achieve.

Think about it: Just by being in houses and offices we literally put walls between us and the natural world, so of course it’s more difficult to transmit and receive universal knowledge without the aid of our power source: the elements of nature.

Another tactic of manipulation that is used to disempower people is the illusion of time. Someone who lives in the woods without an instrument of time would only follow time according to the movement of the sun, and thus would not be under the same state of control as someone who is always following the clock.

This conditioned focus, obsession, and addiction to time also takes people out of the present moment which is where the power of creation lies. You can only create in the present moment, not in the past or future, but due to our obsession with time, we very commonly focus our minds on the past and future, thus living in a perpetual state of “the grass is always greener on the other side.” We’re programmed to always want to be somewhere else other than where we are right now, and that is completely disempowering and leads to depression, anxiousness, and anxiety.

Have you noticed when you’re in a natural environment like when you go hiking or camping you’re not so uptight, and are much more mentally healthy and have a much greater ability to create (and procreate)? It’s only logical that an organic being would be much more powerful and potent in its natural environment, and that includes the physical and mental characteristics of the environment that it’s in.

So now that we’ve discussed the Big Problem of apathy and how we’ve been conditioned to give our power away to the system and sabotage ourselves, let’s talk about the solution.

First off, let’s go back to the previous topic of consciousness development. We are all here going through this process of development on a micro scale, and the force that drives this process is the cycle of alchemy. Alchemy involves the transformation of matter, and of course the classic example is converting base metals into gold. What I’m going to talk about is the aspect of alchemy involving the transformation of consciousness.

Here’s an example: When you first start riding a bike, it’s difficult. It’s hard to stay balanced, and you’re afraid of falling off. At this point in your development of riding a bike, you are still unconscious of your ability to ride a bike well, and your potential is unfulfilled.

But as you keep trying day after day, and you ride with your friends or siblings who are better than you, you see firsthand how they ride the bike without fear, and you realize you’re no different than them. They just have more practice, thus more experience and confidence. So you keep riding and riding until you’re not even thinking about riding anymore, you’re just doing it effortlessly, and soon enough you’re just as good as the others.

So what happened? Did some miracle occur that allowed you to just one day ride a bike? No, you simply realized your natural ability through the practice of doing it, and thus your ability to do it became real for you. You transformed your belief of “I’m not good at this” to “This is easy!” but here’s the question: If you had simply realized your ability immediately, would you have been able to ride the bike right away? Yes, you would have, but due to the density of consciousness that we live in, we have been disconnected from our creative abilities, so it takes much more “time” to practice in order to realize it.

Your abilities are always limited to the perception of your capabilities, and that is always based on experience, because you can only know something is possible once you’ve received sufficient proof that it’s real for you. In other words, reality will always be equivalent to what you believe is real.

So how this ties in to the solution is like this: Your thoughts and choices create your reality. The greater the focus of your thoughts, the quicker you will be able to manifest them into reality. The practice of projecting your thoughts into reality is called the Science of Imagery. The Science of Imagery is how the world is created–it’s the practice that the controllers use to project and manifest their plans of world domination.

But guess what? We have the ability to use it too, and for good. We can manifest the world that we want to live in by projecting our visions of freedom and prosperity into the universe as focused and powerfully as possible. It’s absolutely no different than the alchemy used in “learning” how to ride a bike (which is actually realizing—you knew all along, but you just weren’t conscious of it), but on a grander scale.

In any way that makes sense and is fun for you, you can project your vision through painting, speaking, writing, filmmaking, storytelling, whatever you enjoy doing. That is how creation works, and the most powerful visions are the ones that have the greatest impact on the world. Movies that reach millions of people have the biggest influence on consciousness and thus consensus reality, which is why the controllers use the media to project their propaganda.

You have the power of choice to decide which ideas you want to exist in your reality, and thus consensus reality, by deciding to tune them in or not. The same goes for the mental, physical, and emotional diet you keep. Opting in to eat at McDonald’s keeps that concept alive in reality, just as opting in to trash television shows keeps that crap on the air.

It is only through discernment and self-control that this reality will change, and it’s within the power of each one of us to decide our scale of impact. Just making healthy choices in your own life ripples out to others and influences their consciousness, and while it may not be perceived as easy to change your habits, it is possible. I know it is, because I have done it myself, and if I can do it, so can you!

So my suggestion is to start small and expand as you go. Make lists and reminders and affirmations to help you. Redesign your office or your bedroom, try out some new music, watch a nature or science documentary instead of a sitcom. Make a single piece of art everyday or write a short poem or send an uplifting email to someone you care about.

Start small, and you’ll develop the new habits over time. Don’t try to do it all in one day. That is how you change your life, and that is how you change the world. One moment, one choice at a time.

Crash the System

I believe we came here for a reason. There are no coincidences in life. Everything has a conscious purpose, because the universe is a conscious being. How can it not be? We’re conscious beings, and we are aspects of the universe, so the same principles apply.

I believe the reason we came here was to end the slavery of human beings, and to advance the civilization of planet Earth to the next stage of development. In other words, we came here to crash the system.

I don’t buy into the notion of scarcity. It’s a scam, a psy-op, a magician’s trick used to fool others into giving their power away to someone else. It’s a lie. Scarcity is nothing more than an idea perpetuated by fear and ignorance. Just look around you in nature. There is an abundance of supplies for everyone thousands of times over, and nature is always replenishing itself. But we have become disconnected from this fact. We have placed our trust in the system to provide for us, rather than nature, which is always there waiting for us to wake up and remember that it’s here as our provider at no cost.

Rather than pick an apple off an apple tree for free, we have been programmed to believe that it is reasonable to go to a grocery store and pay money for it instead. The magicians tell us it’s reasonable because we’re paying for the labor and convenience. And come on, it’s not that expensive anyway. It’s really not that big of a deal.

Do you realize there are kids growing up these days who seriously think that produce comes from the grocery store, not from trees and bushes and the dirt? And can you blame them? Unless someone makes the effort to teach them, if they don’t live in a natural environment they’d never be exposed to it.

That is how deceptive the magician’s trick is. It’s the conjuration of a synthetic reality designed to control the minds of the masses. And it works. It’s completely believable and oh-so seductive with its implanted influences of fame and wealth and pleasure. The system is all you need, the magician’s voice says in our heads. The system gives you comfort and security. Place your faith in it, and it will provide for you.

The system is a false mother Earth. A false Gaia. It poses as all-loving, sucking you in with nationalistic pride, but underneath the veil it’s hideous. A serpent with sharp fangs and poisonous venom that strikes the moment it’s exposed. It’s not human. It has no soul, and it does not have your best interests in mind. Only survival. Only feeding off the life force of the people to keep it running as long as it can keep up the charade.

But the system is weak. It’s frail. It’s scared and alone. It’s terrified of being discovered for what it really is, so it cowers behind a curtain of secrecy. It keeps its human minions mind-controlled with its seduction and influence, always whispering in their ears, but it can’t control everyone. Not all of us are weak-minded. In fact, we were born with the innate ability not to buy into the program. We are the ones who will fulfill the prophecy of its undoing, it knows, so it scrambles in a last ditch effort to hold on to its precious life force and cause as much damage in its fit of rage before it’s defeated for good.

And when that moment comes when it all comes crashing down and the magician’s illusion vanishes in thin air, everything will change. Like a switch going off in the mind of the collective consciousness, the people will realize that they’ve been duped all this time. They will see clearly how they were being manipulated, and they will unite together to make sure that it doesn’t happen again. Very quickly, the many problems that have existed in society will be resolved, and the priorities of humanity will shift.

This is our destiny. This is what we came here to do. It has been foreseen in our stories. Star Trek is where we are heading, and we will be the pioneers of space travel. It is inevitable. We are the Next Generation. We will not fail where previous generations did, because we have it in our DNA. The history has already been written, and we are here to experience it. That is what we signed up for. Not for mundanity and not for slavery.

This is our time, and we are the new captains of the ship. I say we set sail for new horizons, new boundaries, deep in space. Anything is possible as long as we stand together. No more division. No more hatred. Let the way of the old go, and the way of the new prevail. That is the only way out of this mess, and we cannot let the opportunity pass.

So enough of this paradigm, I say. It’s time for revolution. It’s time for change. It’s time to crash the system.
