"What can I do to make a difference?"
This is a question almost everyone asks themselves at some point in their lives. What causes this questioning? I think it is the recognition of something that can be improved, while also recognizing you have the capacity to be that changing force. We can think of this as 'Heart Space Energy' or the 'Divine Feminine' aspect to our BEingness. We find ourselves today, looking out into the world seeing things that can be improved upon and we now have the energy of caring to motivate us into action. But how do we do this effectively?
It is one thing to recognize the possibility for improvement in your reality, it is another to actually draw that forth from yourself into the world. This is where key knowledge and understanding comes in; the Divine Masculine. And this is why a balanced consciousness, true sovereignty, is the key to our global shift.
Charles Shaw is a researcher, Activist, and Writer who discusses many concepts which are becoming more 'mainstream' within the awakening community. Sovereignty is a key aspect to his work; although his approach does not use the usual language or structure. Which I found quite refreshing.
For me, the Data was a review of why our personal responsibility and liability are so crucial to lasting peace and true freedom on Earth. As Charles discusses, history is a cycle of consciousness revolutions and their ultimate collapse by the skillful hands of our would-be masters. The constant thread is this: break down the individual so that the freeing aspects of a consciousness shift do not take place; so that the inner work cannot occur.
This is the transition we are making now. Where we are brave enough to do the inner work and heal, even if it means letting go of something which has comforted us in the past.
Many people are making shifts in their lives; our relationships and perspectives are changing. So many of us are ready to start BEing the change we want to see in the world. With this in mind, its good to step back and gain some perspective on what has come before so we can move forward with knowledge and caring combined. Balance.
We tend to instinctively turn away from things that we view as 'negative' in our lives; the fight or flight response. Wile moving away from a toxic environment can be helpful, we also can acknowledge our role here as co-creators. Transmutation of something we once viewed as negative into a positive is part of the shift which in consciousness that we are all helping to realize; and it is an act of true bravery to expand your consciousness of a thing you view as negative.
For example, 9/11 can easily be seen as negative, but if we expand our knowledge and perspective by doing the Inner work, we can see that this event was one of the key triggers in the global shift of consciousness happening right NOW.
