As I continue to work with the collective consciousness of various nations I gain more confidence in deciphering a particular way of thinking or cultural imprints in their psyche, the way societies work as a unit. For just like each of us is their own soul purpose or a divine blueprint, playing a particular ‘role’ in the magnificence of creation, so are societies collectively. Each nation or race has an agreement with the Cosmos (and itself) to play a particular role in the evolution and/or ascension of The Whole.
At the beginning of this year I had a chance to share my vision of unified~umbrella political system for Europe with someone who understood my concepts and saw them in a wider context. A semi-formal occasion, I barely know my partner in conversation but my hands are in the air, I’m on my tiptoes, heart pumping, speaking quicker than usual. And being aware of it. The topic engaged the Whole of me. Far more than my ‘usual’ creative expressions of dance or painting. I slowed down, I had mixed feelings, I rarely let my passion loose in public. But I just had.
On the way home I enquired what was it that really kept this fire burning, always present although not always acknowledged by my practical self. Yes, I grew up in a political household and my writing got me into Youth Parliament. And these perhaps form the framework, ‘the stones around the fire’. But it seems the core of it is threefold.On the superficial level politics is one of the most stimulating exercises for my brain, it appeals to one of the strongest aspects of my mind – organisation. This in turn sits against the backdrop of my understanding of hierarchy. Politics, through good organisation, is the best medium to deliver socially what the said hierarchy suggests. Slightly deeper there is an activated aspect of my psyche which drives the heat ‘upward’ and keeps me focused ~ politics taps into and empowers the archetype of a humanitarian in me which I feel strongly connected to. Then there is the deepest level of my understanding, underpinning the rest.
Years ago I thought it was the power, which I believed politicians represented, that inspired me. Today, after I’ve grown and matured a little I smile at the ‘cunning’ of the Universe, at its continuous games. It transpires that my deep interest in political structures and delivery is nothing more than an extension of my continuing fascination with Spirit and how it finds Its way through the intricate tapestry of human construct. From a wider perspective I see global politics as an expression of a collective ego mind which ‘terrorises’ the subtler, more alive expressions of humankind.
Lies, hidden agendas, manipulation, the everyday of political interaction with the public, are Spirit’s tools to bring us to the realisation of what we are and what we are not. Our awareness constantly navigates through the obstacles of falsehood, fraud, deception, guiding us, individually and collectively, towards what is more Whole-istic, genuine, relevant, in the present moment. Everything is exactly as it ‘should’ be, right here, right now and serves us to raise awareness, to touch and engage us. From the place of true engagement we can consciously create. I believe global politics can evolve into an intelligent, unified model and serve as a balancing, rather than a governing force. And just like the Ego, when accepted and integrated (or transcended if you had chosen to Ascend) in tandem with the Soul it can deliver miracles to this Earth. Believe it or not.Related posts:
Someone from metaphysical circle quizzed me recently about my Brighton adventure. They wanted to know if re-opening the crusted energies of IRA bombing could have in any way triggered events in Paris that followed shortly after. I was intrigued by this way of thinking but still saw it as linear.The fact is, even if the subconscious currents play a pivotal role in orchestrating what emerges in the physical, the collective events have hundreds of different influences shaping them, from the visible to the cosmic. The events of 2015 have been centuries in the making, certain things are simply inevitable. Does it help to know that the alignment of planets is similar to that of 2008, when the financial crisis hit us?
It’s enough to look around – US, under the emblem of democratisation and bringing order to the countries of its choice, militarises itself by planting its weapons in Europe and Middle East. These weapons will never be indexed against US. An excellent and disastrous tactic. Of course US is itching to sink its militarised tentacles into the Ukrainian soil – right under the nose of the dragon it knows very little about – Russia. US, like a 17 year old who thinks he knows everything about life is teasing a ruler who has support of 80% of Russian population. Even in sport opponents respect each other – in politics idiocy prevails. Nothing new, only when these two giants collide, it will be the mainland Europe that suffers. Yet again. Oh the joys of the collective karmic cycles. One Merkel seems grounded but is she also a redeemer?
However, cynical as I sound, I have never understood my work as preventative. For me it is only natural that Earth, while balancing itself and expanding, will clear the excess of human population. War or major global conflict would serve or assist that purpose. It’s similar in mechanism to an illness, or a cough when body is ridding itself of toxins, releasing what no longer builds it or serves our purpose. From the karmic point of view I don’t believe it serves evolution for humans to go without reaping the consequences of their continuous rape which they perform on the planet.
And just like an illness, conflict is neither good or bad, just a part of the process. At this stage of our evolution it is offered as a catalyst. Our attitude towards it determines if we learn or deny the lessons it brings. When conflict is understood, a great clarity, truth and respect can arise from it. But I’d stress – when understood, and this faculty of our minds is rarely applied globally. Moralities, codes of conduct, laws – plenty of those but true understanding is scarce in the collective human psyche. As far as I can see.
And a bucketful of laughter for the one who challenges my point of view and corrects my thinking.
History (aka karma) lives in our cells and guides us towards experiences and people that can assist us in transforming it, releasing us from the grip of the karmic cycle, individually and collectively. It will speak to us in instincts, intuition, urge or ‘heart’s desire’. Disrespecting any of those or talking ourselves out of following their advice cuts us off from fulfilling ‘our’ Soul’s Purpose and deprives others of the same. Although I rarely know where I am guided to before I set off, I learnt to never question these messages as they always direct me into deeper awareness.
Last month I received an urge to go across the border. So I did. Having not visited for 3 years, I missed England. Funny thing – belonging. Edinburgh, the cradle of Enlightenment, certainly inspires my mind and is intellectually fast paced which I enjoy. Yet in London I ‘feel’ at home, I re-connect and my heart expands.
I spent majority of my time in Brighton, where I sank into relaxation listening to the waves, sipping cups of tea and writing. Fireworks were a bonus and rather appropriate for new beginnings. 2 days into the bliss and the ‘original’ intention of the visit was revealed to me. I came not only to re-asses elements of an identity I picked up unconsciously a decade ago but also to touch the heart of Brighton bombing (1984). History, of course. Perhaps even those involved had reconciled but the twisted collective pathways remained. And sure enough, after tuning in there they were: coldness, hatred, paralysis and deep mistrust that reached far beyond the city and the community. One of the most fascinating energies I dealt with this time were terror which almost immediately gave birth to numbness and was in turn encased by it. If allowed to sit for long enough, the only result of such combination is eruption.
Energy has to go somewhere and it always does. I did my best to loosen up the stone energy and release at least some of the heat which proved challenging. Firstly, the friction and stubbornness between both nations was still palpable and almost impossible to bridge. Secondly, I did not have ‘Irish blood’ near me to draw wisdom from or anchor the process into the human form. I will be returning to England in Autumn to feel for results.To say that I am blown away and humbled by what I was given here to do is an understatement. Sometimes I hold my breath in awe at the magic that happens through the human heart and I hope I will live long enough to see Mother Earth totally balanced. For the time being ~ Happy 2015.
I do my best to be very selective in the choice of news I read because every time I come across yet another display of Congress’ puppetry and Britain’s subservience, my blood pressure rises dramatically. Admittedly, I have been chipping away at my anti-Americanism, or anti-militarism to be precise, for some time now. Let me tell you this is the best spiritual practice of radical acceptance I could have treated myself to. Accepting stupidity. Not that long ago war was an art of strategy. Today, it is the least intelligent way of going about international relations, at least in the US fashion. So I educate myself on the Giant’s policies and look for clues which could convince me that what America is doing has at least a hint of logic and reason behind it. None to be seen. It is because the decisions do not originate in the Government. The strings are pulled by Federal Reserve.
So when I go within to explore what is it that actually infuriates me about the destructive, unsanctioned rampage that is going on, I find it is not the loss of individual lives. There are plenty of those lost in hunger, natural disasters, domestic violence, that comes with territory of living – Nature taking its course. But it is the destruction sent along the energetic lines of human psyche, damaging collective evolutionary chain which human spirit represents that sits in the root of my irritation. The conflicts, murder, rape, torture as well as less visible and tangible psychological, emotional abuse and rape of dignity in fact paralyse the nervous system (human body’s communication / connectivity pathways with the Universe) of 3 to 5 generations which follow the original occurrence. This entangles the collective subconscious and seeps into the land in question. How would I know?
My own ancestors experienced war on both sides of the family, some surviving the work camps – it took me nearly a decade to untangle the web of collective guilt, shame and unresolved trauma from my own essence. It is a peeling away of layers of pain that are not ours to begin with. It is a heavy, dramatic work, and it hurts. I am one of millions. All that because once upon a time Hitler decided to channel his strategic genius into destructive action. Today, war is an entertainment run by thick-skinned, thick-headed men led by greed.
” Do you recall the time, a little less than twenty-five years ago, when we took the trolley car to the Reichstag building, convinced that we could really help turn those fellows into honest democrats? How naïve we were, even as men forty years old! I can only laugh when I think about it. Neither of us realized how much more powerful is instinct compared to intelligence. We would do well to bear this in mind or the tragic errors of those days may be repeated.” Einstein to Born, 1944.
Are we any wiser? Have we understood or are oblivious to the fact the perpetration continues only in different fields and clad in more convoluted justifications. Sometimes it seems to me humanity is in regression. And if peacemakers have ever made any progress, war had always been two steps ahead.
Following from my previous post ‘Nature doesn’t Mind’ I decided to go a little deeper into Nature’s ‘indifference’ and evolutionary focus of planet Earth to give us a different perspective on the current world affairs.
Every system by the law of nature, strives to bring itself to balance internally and towards balance with the adjoining systems. Physically this happens with and within a body of a living organism, a family, community, society, country etc. Just like the cells in the body communicate instantly and each knows what the other is doing (each cellular system of an organ knows what the other is doing) and influence each other, similar interdependencies are present in the ‘outside’ or how I call it – expressed world. In the invisible world, systemic balance relates to aspects of human psyche, soul and spirit as well as his other dimensions, 7 energy bodies and vibrational ‘time scale’. Individually and collectively. Both invisible and expressed worlds also ‘seek’ balance between each other.
Planet Earth is currently undergoing a process of integration. We could see it as our planet ascending but more precisely the process could be described as planet Earth expanding to accommodate higher vibrations. It will complete this process with or without us. The international conflicts deepen as globally ‘we’ strive to balance ourselves with other planets in the galaxy. Humans who aren’t ready to open up to the vibration of Light will leave the planet and en mass. We can expect the conflicts to intensify. Applying reason, resorting to sanctions or conducting international dialogue based on the communications of the past will fail as they do not correspond with what the planet Earth is doing energetically. Earth is doing what it has to do to bring itself into planetary and galactic balance. As human race we matter very little for the process and have no control over it.
The only choice we’ve got is to go with her or not. The only choice for humanity is to transcend its karma collectively.
Observing the events that had been taking place on the international stage for some time has been both fascinating and discouraging to say the least. Says she, sat in the warmth of her home in Scotland, remote from all the tragic events ripping mainland Europe apart.
It is with a fair dose of scepticism that I approach activists for peace and peacemakers. Partly because keeping the concept of peace alive also keeps its opposite alive. ‘Peace’ cannot exist without war, its existence relies on existence of its opposite. Also, war has been reaping great results, in different fields and forms for over a century. WWI was the beginning of globalization as we know it today. From a practical point of view, when we look at war as a business, and a profitable one, peace is simply not competitive. It has no leg to stand on, for it is sustained mainly by ideals.
Existence of armed conflict serves the perpetuation of power as currently perceived by respective governments. Great care is put into ensuring that war and conflict are part of our civilized (??) culture. Many societies and their identities rely on them. Armed conflict is intrinsically interwoven in our psyche and social systems; the current economic system being its major and mutual benefactor. Citizens’ taxes contribute to war. Both the young who are programmed by violent computer games and adults hypnotized by mass media contribute to war and by default will ensure its continuity. It is a beast created by humans that got a life of its own and is about to get out of human control.
Yet, perhaps another global destruction is what is needed for us to understand our purpose or help us perish. Nature doesn’t mind either way. Understandably.

I’ve been recently inspired by an article, Re-Thinking Middle East written by Avi Melamed. Although Melamed writes about media (which in my view have no moral backbone documenting only what fits and by lack of objectivity contribute to the escalation of conflicts) his article reminded me of a phenomenon I had been observing almost since my emigration to UK in 2003.
In psychology projection is a “theory in which humans defend themselves against unpleasant impulses by denying their existence in themselves, while attributing them to others. In my experience projection happens also with the positive attributes (but to a lesser degree) to everybody and every day. In politics however this can take a form of an open or secret bullying of nations which are perceived as lacking something or needing correction by the West (here I mean US and UK). Needless to say it happens within societies and ethnic groups of the same country also.
Now, we have countries like the USA, considered the leading world economic power when in fact the country is in the unrecoverable debt, telling other nations what to do and how to govern. Democracy is failing or is absent altogether in a lot of states yet the USA insists on imposing the system onto countries of a totally different inheritance, culture, mentality and capacity. The arrogance, lack of respect, education and integrity (while waving a flag of a peace-bringer) in this behaviour are soul-cringing. Unable to look at their own mess Americans with obedient poodles from UK go and create mess elsewhere. See Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan. It seems post-WWII reputation of the USA has never been properly investigated or re-evalued.
The West had always been aggressive, I sometimes wonder if what is happening right now is not a projection of its impotence over and lack of understanding of the old cultures. The cultures that had created the British Empire and are the roots of a modern American society.
That said, I am a biased European.
