The Power of Collective Consciousness

I would like to address the subject of Collective Consciousness given the current state of affairs in our country and in the world with respect to this corona virus issue.  It has been weighing heavy on my heart for a number of reasons.

First, let me express my sincere sympathies for those who’ve experienced the loss of a friend or loved one and for those who may have contracted this virus and have or are still suffering.  I realize this is a very real issue that needs considerable attention.  I greatly appreciate the scientists and those in the medical professions who are working tirelessly to mitigate this problem.  My heart goes out to all who are truly affected and to those who are on the front lines of this situation.

However, I do believe that the Collective Consciousness in regard to this issue has been grossly manipulated and deeply affected by an almost monolithic mass media whose nonstop negative coverage of the virus and its effects has kept the issue stirred up and in our faces.

By definition, Collective Consciousness (CC) is the over-arching focus of the masses on a single issue, operating as a unifying force. Throughout human history, this has often resulted in positive outcomes. Two examples that immediately spring to mind are: 1) the American Civil War – though our nation was fiercely divided, enough energy was focused to end legalized slavery and this served as the precursor to the extension of civil liberties to all Americans, regardless of race or ancestry, etc.; and 2) World War Two – because of the global Collective Consciousness and its reaction to the atrocities of the Nazis, a majority of nations joined together and stopped this monstrous attempt at world domination.

Media coverage of the current corona virus issue has concentrated exclusively on now-discredited projection models that have proven to be wildly inaccurate even though statistics continue to be manipulated in their favor. The news is filled with reports of fatalities, often repeating individual stories from days or even weeks before, although these fatalities actually account for far less than 5% of those affected. At the same time, there is virtually NO coverage of the vastly overwhelming majority of people affected with the virus who have or are recovering. As a side note: have you noticed how often a ‘picture’ of this virus is shown EVERYWHERE? Understand, that what we focus on (i.e. keep in front of our face) we attract. This is why vision boards are so effective. (See the law of quantum mechanics below.)

The results of this incessant emotionally-charged fear-based propaganda we are constantly being fed has taken our world by storm.The negative energy caused by isolation, by removal of personal freedoms, by loss of jobs/income and by actual global economic suppression are and will continue to be manifested in ever-increasing incidences of family dysfunction, severe mental health and substance abuse problems along with heightened political unrest. 

Why do I believe this Collective Consciousness around the corona virus is so dangerous? To explain, I will need to expound upon the Law of Attraction.

How the Law of Attraction works:

We have been hearing a lot about the Law of Attraction these days, primarily because of  ground-breaking discoveries in the science of Quantum Physics.  These discoveries are creating exponential expansion within some previously held scientific theories while over-turning many others.

Quantum physics is the study of energy at the subatomic level. We are surrounded by invisible un-potentiated energy.  The phrase un-potentiated energy basically means un-assigned energy, energy waiting to be used or turned into something.

Quantum physicists learned in the famous ‘Double-Slit Experiment’ that all energy at the unseen atomic level has a wave-particle duality. Energy is in wave form until it is observed, when it turns into particle form.  The act of observation actually CHANGES what is being observed; enough observation will actually turn the energy into matter.

Meanwhile, it is important to understand that everything is energy and therefore in constant vibration. The higher the vibration of anything, the stronger it is.  The higher vibration the human body holds, the stronger and more resilient it is.  This is why it behooves us to eat high vibration nutritious foods, exercise, use high-vibration homeopathic holistic medicines rather than static chemical pharmaceuticals, think positive thoughts, speak positive words, etc.

EVERYTHING is energy!  YOU are pure energy. Your thoughts are energy.  Your emotions, by the way, are SUPER-energy!  A rock is energy.  Vapor is energy.  The chair you may be sitting in is energy. The only difference in the vibratory measurement, or frequency, is in how tightly knit the molecules are.  Typically, the tighter the molecular structure, the lower the energy or frequency. Quantum energy is of the highest energy just waiting to be potentiated.  High energies are more attracted to entrain than are lower energies, or frequencies, simply because they are already in a state of hyper-motion.  For instance, Newton’s 1st Law of Motion states: “An object in motion tends to stay in motion and an object at rest tends to stay at rest unless acted upon by an outside force.”  Example: A car travelling at uniform speed will continue to do so unless the brakes or friction are applied (force), it hits an object (force) which slows or stops its motion or it is slowed or stopped by gravity (force).

At this point, I would like to define a couple of terms:

The Entrainment Principle:  the tendency for two oscillating bodies (i.e. frequencies or vibrations) to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony; like frequencies attract like frequencies. For example, abundance and gratitude share the same frequency.

The Pygmalion Effect: The name is derived from the mythical Greek character, Pygmalion, who had carved such a beautiful statue that he fell in love with it and brought it to life.  In other words, Pygmalion’s perception of this seemingly inanimate rock as a beautiful living woman changed its very nature into exactly that, a beautiful living woman. This myth is the basis for many popular stories, plays and movies, like the well-known musical ‘My Fair Lady’.

This effect was clearly illustrated by a study that showed that teachers’ perceptions of their students impacted those students’ innate IQ level. When the teacher perceived a particular student as an “intellectual bloomer” (even if this held no measurable validity), that student became an intellectual bloomer. The Pygmalion Effect can be described then as a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The practical application of this means that how we choose to perceive people or situations in our life actually brings those perceptions into reality. Our perception is actively collaborating with our world. How we choose to perceive things is not simply a passive analysis of the past.  What we focus on expands or multiplies and is drawn to us.  We are actively turning wave energy into particle form, good or bad.

Our lives are a perfect reflection of the summation of our thoughts.  Our lives are indicative of the quality of questions we’ve asked ourselves.  ‘As a person thinks in his heart, so is he’; ‘Be it unto you according to your belief’; ‘All things are possible for him who believes’.  These, of course, are axioms taken from Scripture.

For example, someone NOT taking time to think about the long-term effects of an act could alter the rest of his or her life negatively, such as experimenting with drugs.  Repeated enough times, it becomes a bad habit or a way of life.  On the other hand, TAKING the time to think on the long-term effects of an issue will most likely result in a wiser decision, creating a positive outcome.  Repeated enough times it will alter the rest of one’s life positively.  Examples of this might be deciding to save money vs. spending it immediately or eating a consistent diet of nourishing foods.

In the best-selling series of books entitled “Conversations With God” by Neale Donald Walsch, God ‘tells’ the author about the ‘Sponsoring Thought’ which is essentially the underlying belief to which a thought is connected. For example, one might consciously think a positive thought such as ‘I enjoy financial abundance’ or ‘I enjoy perfect health’, as a way to make it come true. This is a common’pop culture’ understanding of The Law of Attraction. The problem comes when the one who makes these declarations still harbors the deep-down belief that says something like ‘I’ve never made any real money in my life..why would that change?’ or “I’m getting older – of course my body is starting to slow down, show my age, etc.’ What then inevitably happens is that this underlying belief, this ‘Sponsoring Thought’, is what we actually bring into reality and we remain in that state of financial scarcity or poverty, that state of chronic pain and poor health.

Please understand that emotions create, thoughts create and words create; but words only create when in harmony with thoughts, that thoughts only create when in harmony with emotions, and emotions only create when in harmony with deeply-held belief. One way that has been shown over and over to demonstrate this Law of Attraction is, first, to begin truly to believe that WE WILL GET WHAT WE ASK FOR and to hold this belief with unshakeable faith. When this belief becomes part of our deepest emotional being, the thoughts and words that flow from it are of gratitude and thanksgiving.

So how can we establish ‘perfect health’ as our Sponsoring Thought in the midst of this corona virus ‘pandemic’ and the resulting enforced quarantines, etc.?  Well, to help explain this process, it’s necessary to understand the human subconscious vs. conscious.

Subconscious vs. Conscious:

Neuro-scientists have learned that only about 3% of our conscious mind is being used at any given moment, leaving 97% to the subconscious mind.  The subconscious mind can be likened to the hard drive on a computer.  The conscious mind is the actual ACTIVE thinking we’re engaged in, like purposefully surfing the web, and meanwhile the hard drive is running non-stop in the background, doing its ‘thing’ (whatever that is!)

Now, if you want to change the operating system of your computer, you’ll need to remove the old operating system and download a completely new program, right?  This is what is necessary if you want to change the “auto-fill” responses of the hard drive you currently have.  However, unlike the mechanical simplicity of simply removing an old computer program and installing a new one, we don’t have that luxury with our human brains.  So, how do we reprogram our subconscious mind?

You must remember that your subconscious mind is eternal.  It is the part of you that has always known you, that remembers anything and everything that’s ever happened to you or been taught to you, your feelings, memories, etc.  It is what makes you YOU.  It is your soul.  It is also running your autonomic system; the system that keeps your heart pumping, your food digesting, your lungs breathing, your brain working, etc. This is what is running 97% your life at any given moment and, frankly, some of the aforementioned may not be so beneficial. All of us have lies, fears, doubts, unbelief, self-sabotage, etc. embedded in our subconscious.

How to change our primary operating system (our subconscious minds):  PURPOSELY use the 3% power of our conscious minds.  What??  Isn’t that asking a lot at those odds?  Actually, yes.  Here are some words of wisdom on this very subject from some highly successful people with whom we’re all familiar:

“Five percent of the people think; ten percent of the people think they think; and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.”

Thomas A. Edison

The Quality of your life depends on the quality of the questions you ask yourself.”

Bernardo Moya

“The quality of our life is directly proportional to the quality of our thoughts.”

Avijeet Das

“Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.” 

– Henry Ford

So, THINKING and changing our thoughts ON PURPOSE constantly and consistently is what’s necessary to reprogram our subconscious.  If you’ve even read this far: Congratulations!!  You are actually bothering to THINK!!

As a transformational life coach, THIS is what I coach my clients to do!  Change your thoughts – Change your world…literally!  But old habits die hard.  Especially when we don’t consciously know what’s running by default in our subconscious minds!  Whew!  This is why having a coach’s support is so critical while a person is learning to retrain his/her mind. 

Let’s review: now that you understand a little more about how the Law of Attraction works as it relates to quantum physics, how like frequencies attract and entrain, and how what we observe and focus on is actually ALWAYS creating according to our thoughts, whether positive or negative, and given the mass focus (Collective Consciousness) of this present virus and the atmosphere of fear which has become our current reality, we are creating a veritable ‘tractor beam’ of exactly what we DON’T want!! 

Earlier I quoted from Scripture: ‘As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.’  You think you might get sick?  ‘Be it unto you according to your belief.’  You believe this “pandemic” (I strongly believe this word has been purposely coined for alarming impact) will kill thousands upon thousands?  It certainly could, given the mass Collective Consciousness  that’s been fostered. But remember, fear is a highly infectious virus as well; in the well-remembered words of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”.

So we want to draw positive energy, turn off that tractor beam and turn this ship around!  Think healthy!  Think strong!  Be grateful for absolutely ANYTHING you can think of: ALWAYS!  Remember, Gratitude is one of THE HIGHEST vibrations of human emotion. Think love. Give out rather than retract into yourself.  Think abundance rather than scarcity. Think and show  compassion rather than self-absorption.  I could go on and on but I’m sure you get the idea.

WATCH YOUR WORDS & CONVERSATIONS!! WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS!!  WATCH WHAT YOU FOCUS ON!! Let us all purpose to give this virus as little attention as possible so we can ‘STARVE IT’ ENERGETICALLY.  Remember, the quantum realm hears all and responds accordingly, whether spoken or un-spoken, and FEAR is also an energy which attracts like energy. IT’S A POWERFUL VIRUS ITSELF!!

I end with a heart full of love and blessings for each of you individually and collectively.  May each of you enjoy peace, prosperity, health and well-being as we collectively endeavor to change our world as ONE MIND united in love and gratitude!!
