The Secret To Changing The World

We all hold the capacity to change the world; but what does this really mean? There are so many ways we can shift the collective consciousness just by being genuine in all of our interactions and preforming everything to the best of our ability.

When we act out of love and authenticity, we invite others to do the same. When we are fully ourselves, boldly and gently; we become an example of stability and that invites others to do the same.  We can start changing the world by having purposeful interactions in our daily lives.

When we fractal it out to the global consciousness, everyone needs to be propelled forward by their passion. It is your highest excitement that drives you to do what you do, and if that desire was focused around shifting our world into alignment, it would happen!

If everyone suddenly woke up with a sense of urgency that the world needed to change, that passion would drive us to take immediate action.

Passion is what moves us forward.

There’s this amazing, practical Bashar video that sets out a kind of formula called the “Passion Principle.”

He lays out 5 steps to, essentially change the world.

Passion

Take a moment to think, what do I really love? What kind of subject, job, project, ideas am I attracted to? What makes them attractive?  When you feel that driving force pushing you to take certain paths in your life, follow that feeling as it will bring the most amount of excitement to you.

Project

A lot of our goals or dreams seem to be unreachable because of time, its ‘too big’ of a dream, a lack of money or support, etc. Our society is designed to lock us in a job so we can pay off everything else we’ve accumulated. There isn’t really a system in place that supports the very human desire to travel and live off the world in a sustainable manner.

When we express our passions to each other, that’s when we can really manifest them collectively. Share your ideas and you will attract people with a similar goal. When we focus and create a kind of project, program, community, etc. with like-minded people; that is changing the world.

Prepare

It takes a lot of time and energy to put together programs whether it be an anxiety program, a farming/ cultivation program, a dance program; they all take work and creativity. Write out the steps needed to move forward with your projects and recognize the actions required to move it from the mental plane to reality.

Place your energy into learning the skills needed to keep manifesting your dreams. The more you explore and expand the awareness of what you’re creating, the more real it becomes.

People

We need people to change the world! We need to be at a level of awareness where we see the value in connection with each other and the Earth and have that desire push us all forward. We can blend and merge our projects, businesses, and communities to expand around the world and literally forge together to create a new reality.

If we all bought land around the world and spiraled out like a Fibonacci sequence, our locations would grow and merge with each other. The global shift we are all asking for would come into existence through deliberate action and loving intention.

Persistence

It is so important that we keep being driven by our passions. When we shift into a higher consciousness, it’s because we’re staying in alignment with who we are. It is a constant ebb and flow of receiving and giving energy.

Luckily for everyone, existing in a state of joy is our innate way of living. When we design a global system that allows for everyone to thrive, the modern struggles of life cease to exist. The days of simply “getting by” will be long gone and we will support one another physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The current structure of society is, however not there yet so it’s important to begin in your inner circle and as it expands, we reach new heights, together.

Start with yourself, follow your passions, and include others who are following a similar path. We will grow and ultimately, not be ignored.

Junk DNA Is Not Junk After All

Among the many mysteries of human biology is why complex diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and psychiatric disorders are so difficult to predict and, often, to treat. An equally perplexing puzzle is why one individual gets a disease like cancer or depression, while an identical twin remains perfectly healthy.

Now scientists have discovered a vital clue to unraveling these riddles. The human genome is packed with at least four million gene switches that reside in bits of DNA that once were dismissed as “junk” but that turn out to play critical roles in controlling how cells, organs and other tissues behave. The discovery, considered a major medical and scientific breakthrough, has enormous implications for human health because many complex diseases appear to be caused by tiny changes in hundreds of gene switches.

The findings, which are the fruit of an immense federal project involving 440 scientists from 32 laboratories around the world, will have immediate applications for understanding how alterations in the non-gene parts of DNA contribute to human diseases, which may in turn lead to new drugs. They can also help explain how the environment can affect disease risk. In the case of identical twins, small changes in environmental exposure can slightly alter gene switches, with the result that one twin gets a disease and the other does not.

As scientists delved into the “junk” — parts of the DNA that are not actual genes containing instructions for proteins — they discovered a complex system that controls genes. At least 80 percent of this DNA is active and needed. The result of the work is an annotated road map of much of this DNA, noting what it is doing and how.  It includes the system of switches that, acting like dimmer switches for lights, control which genes are used in a cell and when they are used, and determine, for instance, whether a cell becomes a liver cell or a neuron.

“It’s Google Maps,” said Eric Lander, president of the Broad Institute, a joint research endeavor of Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In contrast, the project’s predecessor, the Human Genome Project, which determined the entire sequence of human DNA, “was like getting a picture of Earth from space,” he said. “It doesn’t tell you where the roads are, it doesn’t tell you what traffic is like at what time of the day, it doesn’t tell you where the good restaurants are, or the hospitals or the cities or the rivers.”

The new result “is a stunning resource,” said Dr. Lander, who was not involved in the research that produced it but was a leader in the Human Genome Project. “My head explodes at the amount of data.”

The discoveries were published on Wednesday in six papers in the journal Nature and in 24 papers in Genome Research and Genome Biology. In addition, The Journal of Biological Chemistry is publishing six review articles, and Science is publishing yet another article.

Human DNA is “a lot more active than we expected, and there are a lot more things happening than we expected,” said Ewan Birney of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory-European Bioinformatics Institute, a lead researcher on the project.

In one of the Nature papers, researchers link the gene switches to a range of human diseases — multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease — and even to traits like height. In large studies over the past decade, scientists found that minor changes in human DNA sequences increase the risk that a person will get those diseases. But those changes were in the junk, now often referred to as the dark matter — they were not changes in genes — and their significance was not clear. The new analysis reveals that a great many of those changes alter gene switches and are highly significant.

“Most of the changes that affect disease don’t lie in the genes themselves; they lie in the switches,” said Michael Snyder, a Stanford University researcher for the project, called Encode, for Encyclopedia of DNA Elements.

And that, said Dr. Bradley Bernstein, an Encode researcher at Massachusetts General Hospital, “is a really big deal.” He added, “I don’t think anyone predicted that would be the case.”

The discoveries also can reveal which genetic changes are important in cancer, and why. As they began determining the DNA sequences of cancer cells, researchers realized that most of the thousands of DNA changes in cancer cells were not in genes; they were in the dark matter.

The Southern California Festival Circuit- A Personal Experience

Have you ever gone to the middle of nowhere and camped for the weekend, danced under a full moon or bright sun all day long to extraordinary music that vibrates through incredible sound systems?

I have. And it changed my life.

I was introduced to the Southern California festival circuit over 3 years ago and I’ve never been the same. It opened my senses to experiences I’d never known, but dreamed of. While also supporting the ever increasing desire to create Heaven on Earth; a place so full of beauty and connection  that anyone who gravitated towards it was likely to remember it for the rest of their life.

On a cold and auspicious morning on 11/11/11 I experienced the part of me that is connected to all beings everywhere, a love so profound and unifying, tears running down my face was the only appropriate response.

I danced all night long to music that seemed to come directly from my soul, from our dreams, from a place so mystical and entrancing that I lost myself in it.

I became the sky. The soil. The moon. The sun. And everything in between.

Here’s a video I filmed myself (not the best quality) of an event called ‘Moontribe’ where friends, family, artists, and dreamers of all sorts gather to experience transformation and connectedness.

I connected with people whom I’d never met before, but who felt like family from eons ago. We treated one another with love and respect and with the knowing that we all traveled to be here just at this precise moment to feel what we’re FEELING.

I observed the amazing and creative performance known as FLOW ARTS where individuals engage with fire, poi, hoola hoops, etc.  in a very conscious and magical way that seems other worldly. Being a dancer myself, I had always felt the subtle energies we ‘play’ with when in a state of complete abandonment and exploration, but to see people engaging with the elements or flow toys actually brought out a tangible, ‘I can see it‘ sort of vibe.

Here is a video of ‘Landon Avalon‘ who is an incredible performance artist from Los Angeles. He’s traveled to different cities within the U.S., to Mexico and Peru to serve his passion!

I was enamored to say the least.

My journey took me to many different locations and festivals like Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis, Enchanted Forest, and Lucidity to name a few. I even had the opportunity to engage with groups of people who created community kitchens, crystal lounges, geodesic domes, and art galleries within these festivals.

You will witness art installations that range from very small to very large, some you can climb into and enjoy the view! There are workshops for everyone from the old to very young,  with themes like learning permaculture, creating your own dream catcher, introduction to AcroYoga, and crystal griding just to skim the surface!

And the DJ’s are SO NEXT LEVEL!!!

They’re not only creating their own music based on experiences and inspiration within these festivals, but they’re tuning it to specific frequencies to facilitate particular sensations within the human body, uplifting the observer into new heights of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual awareness!

GENIUSES!

For an introduction to these frequencies visit the YouTube channel JezebelDecibel !!!

There’s so much more I’d like to express about these extraordinary festivals, but it would be the longest article and I hope it at least got you curious! Maybe you’ll attend one soon and if so, I hope to see you there!

Granted, we may not all have the same sort of experience at these gatherings, events, and festivals, THERE is room for expansion and growth IF that is what you seek or want.

When we go beyond what is within our comfort zone, we find there is a place for us to feel connected, inspired, and loved. We need only take a step into the unknown.

It is there that we discover the infinite possibilities open to us.

P.S. Team Spirit Mexico is attending an event in San Diego, California that is inspired by these sort of festivals and gatherings. We’ll be filming our experience, talking to artists, DJ’s, and people just like YOU who come from all over the country to engage in the SoCal Love VibEzz. It is through our engagement with this community that we will create new content for The Spirit Science website!

Here’s a link to the event: Lu Fam Pro presents Luminous Movement with Kaminanda and special guest Nicefingers

The producer of the event is also an amazing MC who goes by the name J Brave, check out his conscious hip hop music here!!!

In the comments below, please share if you’ve been to any of these festivals and what it was like for you! <3

How to Tap Into the Energy of the New Moon

The new moon is upon us again.  Within the rhythmic cycles of the grandmother moon, there is a point each month during which the moon is completely hidden, causing it to appear completely dark and invisible from our Earth perspective.  This happens when the moon is in conjunction with the sun.  This is the moon phase referred to as a “New Moon”, after which point the moon is in a waxing period, meaning a phase of becoming progressively more visible leading up to the full moon.

In basically every culture throughout history, great significance is paid to the moon and her phases.  Astrologically speaking, the new moon is associated with intense yin (feminine principle) energy, darkness, introversion, new beginnings, solitude, and intentions.  Within many cultural and religious traditions, new projects are intentionally begun during the period of the new moon.  Whereas the sun and solar energy are bright, visible, warm, penetrating, and ‘male’ or yang polarity, the moon is the great celestial grandmother- cooling, receptive, cleansing, soft, magnetic, and female- associated with water.

Over recent years I have developed a more intimate conscious relationship with the grandmother moon, which has synchronized my flow in this rhythmic cyclical universe, connected me to my body, aided in my alchemy work, and heightened my ability to work with the natural energies for consciously arranging my reality as  I prefer it. What I really love and appreciate about the moon is that with her, we always have a reason to celebrate and enact ritual at least twice per month, every month.  For me this almost always includes crystal work or crystal grids, and creating alchemy water channeling the moon’s energy. I also like to write, pray, sing, and allow new songs to flow through me.  It’s nice as well to feel the moon’s energy more intensely by being at the ocean.  How do you celebrate the new moon and work with her in her time of darkness and retreat?

I would like to share some reflections on the implications of the energies of the new moon. What they are, how to connect to them, and different ways in which you can interact with and integrate this energy in such a way that, be you man or woman, you are able to feel more at ease in your body and your spirit and that you may find an enhanced capability to work within natures lunar cycles to create visions and usher them into your physical life.  Let’s begin.

Practicing Mindfulness in Your Everyday Life

Mindfulness is the mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.

abstract-sketch-of-woman-meditating-and-doing-yoga-vector-illustration_zJ196f_dLife can bring about an array of different ways to force one out of body, where it seems the mundane is ruler and routine is how it is all kept together.

Life is about constantly stepping out of those comfort zones to allow one to be in constant expansion with oneself. Finding out your own personal method of Mindfulness will help you when dealing with the unexpected and in manifesting the life you want.

We may find ourself facing numerous thought processes more negative in nature, such as: ” I am a failure”, “What will I become”, “My life is in ruins”, “I don’t think I can do this anymore”.

This is okay and you are not alone.

You can practice mindfulness just about anywhere, and everywhere you may find yourself in your day to day life.   There is no such thing as a “Bad time” to check in with your self, In fact nothing is more important for you to remain balanced and centered in the uniqueness that is you.  You can do this on the way to work, while in your vehicle and at every red light, when waiting in line, and whenever you get a moment free from the creation of your day.

How might one practice mindfulness?

elementsYou can begin to observe your body by being aware of what it may feel like for you to be exactly where you are at in the present moment: to stand, or sit, or lay.

How does the weight against the soles of your feet feel in side of your shoe? How does your foot feel inside the particular fabric the sock is made from? What does your body feel like laying down, describe the weight against the side of your body that is laying down. What does it feel to stand erect verses slouched? And so on..

Be in body and not in your thoughts will allow your self to observe your thoughts as they come and go. Notice you do not have to put in a ounce of input, you can simply watch and feel these thoughts subjectively.

You can redirect attention away from “negative” thought processes by starving them of the attention it takes for them to exist. Becoming aware of what may trigger such thoughts or being aware of what you are doing when these thoughts occur is called being Mindful of the present moment.

When one is Mindful of the Present moment with focus in body, the connection between our thoughts and the moment they form is apparent.

dancing-girl_GkZdKPKuYour body is a genius and knows when and why distress has occurred for you.  Simply being present with yourself and making it a habit to check in with your self on a regular basis could immediately bring forth positive improvement on how much you value your presence and life.

You are not your thoughts.  Understanding that a thought is nothing until you focus on it, and believe it is true, can be very beneficial to you.

Manifesting, synchronicity, and peace of mind can come very easily when one is fully present.

No matter where you find yourself, you are exactly where you need to be for your personal evolution and ascension. Its easy to get caught in thoughts about the self that live to separate you from the moment, practicing mindfulness helps you see those thoughts for exactly what they are.

Check out this video from the author for more tips and ideas about the practice of mindfulness..

If you take away space all you have is here, if you take away time all you have is Now.

Much Love,
