This afternoon, while sitting on the grass in the park with my little Chihuahua Georgy, enjoying the warmth of the sun on my bare feet, I pondered on the current human predicament and wondered if anything could be done to facilitate a smoother transition to a better world. I decided to do a spiritual contemplation exercise for direction.
I closed my eyes and opened my awareness to feel the energetic field of the collective in my area. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit I contemplated on my reflection (this particular skill is something that the Holy Spirit has taught me and continues to teach me through daily spiritual practices. There is no “magic” involved in this practice. It is simply learning to focus one’s attention into the frequency vibrations beyond the five senses, feel them and listen to spiritual guidance).
I felt an impenetrable wall of energy in front of me and became helpless. The nature of this wall was collective terror, specifically the fear of death. I quickly stopped the impulse to push against it to make it go away -a natural human reaction- knowing quite well that it is useless and exhausting to attempt such feat. I took several deep, slow breaths to relax and continued the contemplative exercise.
It is practically impossible for a single individual to break through a solid wall of collective, emotionally induced, unconscious terror. Furthermore, if the individual attempts to use will power against it, the collective will register such act as an assault resulting in a rise in fear and the subsequent tightening of the wall at the level of the unconscious mind.
“It is hopeless.” I thought. Before despair engulfed me completely, I turned my full attention on Spirit and kept breathing deeply. I felt the nudge to revisit the past; specifically, the many times I worked as a manager in food related industries.
During those times, I remembered, I found myself navigating difficult circumstances caused by the previous management. Employees didn’t work as a team and in many instances they were at odds with one another. Some of them gave away food to friends who stopped by, decided when to come to work and when to leave ignoring their scheduled time and didn’t follow regulations for cleanliness and minimum waste of resources. The large majority of them had an outright attitude of entitlement and disrespect.
It was nearly impossible to function in an environment where anarchy ruled.
It is my personal opinion that a true leader is someone who is both firm and fair; one who follows a vision through to fruition no matter the obstacles in the way. A leader is able to set the tone (it is an actual energetic sound or note) from the core of his being as both a vision and a feeling of the environment to be manifested and holds it unwavering.
At the time I didn’t know how to manifest a vision according to a higher purpose, a divine purpose. I knew the workplace I wanted to participate in; one where everyone felt a sense of cooperation, camaraderie and closeness; an environment that supported and promoted personal growth for all (me included and extended to the customers). In my vision, synergy instead of anarchy was the collective choice embraced willingly by each individual.
Contemplating on this today, I realized that I had a clear feeling of what I wanted to manifest. Furthermore, I didn’t keep the feeling inside me; I brought it out through choices, decisions and interactions for all to see and feel.
The first week on the job, I worked alongside the employees getting to know them and observing their behavior. I gave everyone the opportunity to become a valued team member and to mature as a human being. I explained what was expected of them and what needed to change. At this point things began to heat up. Those who didn’t want to let go of the old bad habits acquired during and overlooked by the previous manager became belligerent opposing and ignoring what was asked of them. I wrote them up each time they conducted themselves in an inappropriate manner and explained again the new code of work ethics. Some of them left without notice. Others, the more stubborn ones, tried everything to bully and coerce me into submission. One of them assaulted me physically. I had to call the police to have her removed from the store for good. Two large cops struggled with her and could hardly hold her down.
Those were the hardest weeks on the job. I worked around the clock, from opening to closing, seven days a week. I cried myself to sleep most nights. Yet I knew that the storm would eventually pass and balance would be restored at some point. New employees were hired and coached by those who had decided to stay and to participate in creating a better work environment. Bad habits became a thing of the past and soon the fruits of the painful labor began to show.
With happy and grateful employees the energy of the place changed drastically attracting more business and increasing revenues by the double digits. Employees were rewarded and appreciated. Respect, responsibility and dependability were the hallmark of our work family. Customers were attracted by the joyful and cordial disposition of the crew members. They brought us flowers, cards and wrote us poems; their way of reciprocating the love received. A radio station broadcaster, a loyal customer, told the community over radio waves to stop by our store for a cup of coffee imbued with a whole lot of love and joy to warm anyone’s heart. The younger employees came to the workplace on their days off just to hang out. This kind of “magic” happens when people come together in love and unity.
I realized through the contemplation exercise that my experiences as manager are a blueprint for today of the steps involved to move from an outdated and corrupted system of enslavement to one where people choose to come together to create a world of joy, freedom and love.
The “Love vibrations” are around us always and more so nowadays. They nudge us to look into the hidden, dark aspects of our unconscious mind. We are going through the painful and scary phase of a wonderful transformation, the birthing pains of a new collective consciousness. The process is going to be harder for those individuals who are unable and unwilling to let go of their fear to surrender to Truth and face themselves. The old energy template of power and slavery is fighting back to remain in control. This template is constructed and supported by the collective unconscious which holds the key note of the fear vibrations within itself. The individual and collective choice to awaken to truth and align with the love vibration despite of fear dismantles the old master/slave construct; it reveals what has been hiding in the darkness all along and brings it into the light for all to see. People have the opportunity to recognize and acknowledge the lies and distortions promoted by corrupt media, politicians and corporate moguls who are fighting hard to silence the voices of truth.
The transformation will occur not by force of will but by the continued and relentless effort to expose truth by those who have chosen to embody it. Eventually, more people will wake up and come on board while those who still refuse to let go will vanish.
We are experiencing the labor pains of the birthing of the Christ Consciousness in people’s hearts.
A New World under the direction of the Holy Spirit is here, now. It is available to all of us to embrace if we so choose.
