Are you consciously helping to heal our planet?
Most of the people I know are attempting to live more lightly and flow more gently with the earth. Recycling, composting, growing our own food. Some people even living off the grid, downsizing. Taking steps to curb pollution and plastic waste, create less garbage. ￼But there’s more that can happen when we are conscious of doing this together.
￼Do you have the conviction that united, with our hearts full of love and compassion, and with focused intention, we can make a difference? Or are you struggling with “climate despair” and feeling either depression or anger?
I learned that we are on the threshold of a new era. And that despair gives way to the fierce determination to make a difference. The recent IONS (Institute of Noetic Sciences) Conference, and the CHI (Consciousness and Healing Initiative) pre-conference, Biofield Science and Healing July, 2019 gave me new hope.
IONS speakers told of how science, spirituality, and activism are coming together. They know we can use the power of our collective consciousness for the good of the whole.
Inner call to IONS
I had been called inwardly to re-start teaching Nature Communication classes. I looked online, with different search terms, to convince myself that I was not alone. And not crazy. I came across various beloved authors. Their older books line my walls. Then I read Jude Currivan, a physics and consciousness oriented cosmologist, author of The Cosmic Hologram.
Jude was going to be teaching in Santa Clara. I thought, “that’s not so far”. I looked at the program, and realized all these faves, and dozens of others were also going to be speaking!
Out of 700 people, I did not know a single person, beforehand. And yet we are all in this together. And we can find a way out, together.
Jude Currivan: fractal patterns for peace
Dr. Currivan introduced some of the latest physics. How the apparent solidity of the physical world is not the true reality. 99.99% is nothingness, black holes and dark matter. What is left is ripples and relationships in energy fields. The fundamental unit is no longer the atom, but information.
She spoke of how fractal patterns are universal–from how metals change their state, to river systems, coastlines, biological relations like rabbit reproduction, to patterns of wildfires, earthquakes and galaxies. And how they play out in human behavior, computer and social networks.
Please take note of this if you are prone to “climate despair”:
Jude said that the fractal patterns of hurricanes and earthquakes, the destructive patterns of our wars and conflicts can be mirrored by how we can manifest the same power to create peace.
It’s apparently up to us.
john a. powell: Overcoming “othering”
john a. powell spoke eloquently about overcoming the sense of separateness, the “othering” that plagues our social relations. He spoke of the deep divisions in this country, that show up in immigration suffering, in bitterness and political hostility, in denial of the basic humanity of the other as oneself.
The “othering” can be across races. It can be across gender differences, economic inequality, national borders, religions. It can be across species.
Compassionate Interspecies Communication
We can overcome that sense of separation, of “otherness” and experience oneness with each other. Also with trees, plants, and yes, even with insects. We can train ourselves to apply universal love, translate it into compassion, and tap into our higher purposes for being here.
At this conference, I heard that dominance is on the way out as we become more woke. And habits of “othering” can be overcome. In fact, we are all on the threshold of a new way to live, to find our gifts and use them (see gifts)
How are you already part of this change?
Have you also been working hard, to serve your family, community, humanity and the planet? Every act of loving kindness, blessing, forgiveness counts. I invite you to extend that love to communicate with nature.
Are you already aware of the interconnectedness of all living things? Do you know about how trees communicate through fungal networks, called the Wood Wide Web? Do you know how plants communicate with each other?
We can retrain our minds.
We need to overcome some false beliefs. Perhaps first is to throw out the belief in human dominance. Replace it with mutuality, respect, compassion, knowing that we are interconnected, even intertwined.
As we each do our part, with all our hearts, contributing to the whole, we become part of the fractal pattern that allows humanity and the world to heal.￼
