You Are Much More Than You Realize | But You Need to Believe It

What do you believe in? Do you REALLY believe it?

I don’t normally write opinionated or speculative pieces on this website; usually I try and provide informational articles or transcripts, or a collection of important subjects to consider, etc.

However, this is also incredibly important and I was due for some serious reflection when considering human nature and its connection to energy/vibration/frequency/etc.

I come across a lot of theories that our thoughts form the world around us. If that’s the case, then would a worldwide focus on disease and sickness literally create this mindset that we’re all in? Would a collective consciousness, mainly focused on one thing, bring it to being?

There’s so much to unravel when diving into this subject, and of course I’m not going to come to a clear-cut conclusion, because I have no professional knowledge about metaphysics or quantum mechanics, but I do want to bring up the topic just for deliberation.

Imagine all of the influences that shape your view of the world today. Imagine how you thought of the world when you were younger. Is the stark difference (if any) between the two due to knowledge and experience, simply growing up and learning more about the world around you? Or was it due to outside sources shaping your feelings, emotions, thoughts, patterns? (A combination of both? A nature versus nurture/parental/societal upbringing?)
 
Let’s take this website, for example. Am I unknowingly feeding into the negativity, fear, chaos, confusion, low-vibration energies that I would like humanity to rise out of? By comprising a lot of the articles with negative topics – granted due to wanting to inform readers of the events that are going on around us – I can’t help but feel as if I’m contributing to spreading the anxiety, fears, panic, etc.
 
This is not my intention, but the sentiment remains.
 
There is also the fact of the matter that there are studies that people are naturally drawn to “bad news” rather than good news. Sure it could be from a tendency to be aware of our surroundings and be alert so that we can know what actions to take, but one could also argue that this isn’t the case because of the lack of action to prevent or change these certain things from happening. So then the question becomes, why are we drawn to negativity instead of seeking the positive?
 
Perhaps a twisted curiosity of the chaotic events surrounding us? A slight obsession to keep ourselves informed of all the bad/evil things occurring in the world, yet offering little to no action to counteract it? As it is, there are some groups coming together to raise awareness of several political attempts to impose unnecessary rules and mandates, which does help, but what about the others who remain in their state of un-acknowledgment, or even worse, complicity? Then when considering those who are fully aware of what’s going on, yet maintain a defeatist position, or an apathetic one, the struggle to see the positive outcome can get overwhelming.
 
If the world is indeed composed of energy, frequency, vibration, thoughts, then by constantly focusing on the negative aspects and collectively indulging these thoughts, it creates an endless cycle of fear, division, emotional distress, etc. that keeps us in this lower state of energetic frequency/mentality.
 
If our world does indeed stem from our belief system, creating the trap that essentially enslaves us, then wouldn’t it be prudent to set our beliefs and thought patterns away from all of this evil and negativity, and instead direct it towards hope, faith, love and forgiveness?
 
Some may scoff at this idea, but there could be understandings that bring this theory to interesting reflection, if only one would expand their thinking and entertain these thoughts without the need for completely believing them.
 
Take, for example, the “paranormal” aspects of tulpas, poltergeists, placebos/nocebos, and similar concepts. History and studies dictates that these are within the realm of possibility, if not having already been established.

Then, in a somewhat similar vein as poltergeists, there are cases where a person’s energetic force, if that’s what it is, causes disturbances to electrical objects.

Are You A Slider? The Phenomena of High Energy People Causing Electronics to Go Haywire

I myself have had experiences with appliances going haywire during certain times in my life. I can’t attest that it’s due to my conscious/subconscious/unconscious state, or that it was even directly through me. But it is fascinating and questionable when certain objects respond to a specific person’s close proximity, compared to those of other people.

There is also the matter of vibrational frequencies. Some people experience vibrations during meditation, or even when having out of body experiences. Again, I have first hand accounts of this phenomena, not only from out of body experiences, but also from a vibrational test, of sorts. I fully believe that the more spiritually developed we are, the higher and stronger our vibrational frequencies get. Staying in a state of despair, depression, anger, fear, etc. will keep us in a lower state of frequencies.

Feeling Vibrations During Meditation: Here Is Why!

Now, with all that being said, why do I feel as if our beliefs/thoughts play a significant role in the life that we’re in?

Well, I’m going to go back to one of the most widely known manuscripts/books in history. To the Bible.

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not [overcome] comprehend it.
John 1:1-5

What are words, spoken aloud? It’s sound. What is sound? It’s a vibrational frequency.

“A sound is a form of energy, just like electricity, heat or light. Sound is one of the important senses of the human body. Some sounds are pleasant, and some are annoying. We are subjected to various types of sound all time. Sound waves are the result of the vibration of objects.”What is Sound? – Characteristics of Sound Waves, Propagation Of Sound

“The Word of God” could then be re-written to state “The Vibration of God”. There are also scientific studies into “light” and its definition being of an energetic wavelength – similar to that of sound.

Now, getting back to the Bible, I want to focus on the belief/faith aspect of its teachings.

But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:8-9

The above passage combines both vibrational sound frequencies (speak aloud your faith) with the belief (conscious thoughts) of one’s heart in Jesus Christ.

One has to wonder, why is “belief/faith” such an integral part of the biblical/Godly narrative? If our own belief constructs can make us sick through “nocebos”, or well with “placebos”, just by believing in the concept of side effects or cures, then what would a belief in a divine presence accomplish?

Likewise, if one wants to entertain the opposite side of the fence, what would a deeply held belief in demons, ghosts, negative entities, accomplish? There are many who practice witchcraft, sorcery, satanic rituals, paganism, etc. who have alleged to experience supernatural events. The same can be said of some followers of Jesus and of different religions, but seeing the current situation we have today, one has to wonder if there is a deliberate concerted effort to endorse other religions and practices while simultaneously denouncing Christianity/Jesus Christ for a specific reason.

If there are fewer and fewer people who believe in Jesus Christ, while I, personally, think that each person will have their own independent time of atonement, the whole world will either experience chaos (similar to the situation we find ourselves in right now), or depending on if more and more people choose to believe in Jesus, the world will slowly wake up out of this “worldly/materialistic” system and focus instead on the light/vibration of Truth and Love.

I have researched this for a very long time. While I may not have necessarily put my knowledge into practice until recent years, this information has been one that all roads lead to. And I want to make something completely clear. While there are many who do not believe in Jesus and instead are agnostic, or polytheistic, completely atheist, etc. – here is what I understand – [this is my opinion only based on the research and experiences that I’ve had]:

Jesus IS Love. He is the personification of Love.

I realize there are debates about this concept and that there are instances where Jesus expresses his outrage (fig tree/money changers) and while I’m not going to pretend to understand completely the motivations behind it, I will say that Love is not without its reprimands. I love my son whole-heartedly, but that doesn’t mean I won’t scold him or punish him if he does something out of line. I can’t explain Jesus’ outrage at a fig tree, but it’s not my place to judge.

So what does this all have to do with our beliefs/thoughts/energy/etc.? Well, Love in itself is an energy – emotional/vibrational energy. And if Jesus is Love, then it is akin to saying if we believe in Jesus, we believe in Love. We can also turn it around and say that if we believe in Love (pure, divinely-inspired Love – not the twisted “love” that some people try and justify their actions with), then we believe in Jesus Christ – even if we don’t realize it.

One last passage from the Bible that I want to make mention of (in which there are many centering around this topic) is the pure belief in what Jesus Christ can do.

In Mark 5, Jesus can be seen casting out a Legion of demons from a possessed man. There are a few key takeaways that I want to address.

1.) Even the demons that were being cast out believed in Jesus Christ and His power.

2.) A woman later comes up to Jesus, and just from her belief in Him alone, gets cured from a long-suffering ailment:

25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years.
26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.
27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak,
28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.”
29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. 30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’ ” 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.
33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth.
34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”
Mark 5:25-34

3. The verse: “At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him.” is very telling. This ‘power’ isn’t spoken of in a metaphorical way. It is quite literal. And it indicates that it’s this power that healed the lady. But it’s only because she believed. The question then becomes, what would have happened if she didn’t believe? Would nothing have happened to her? Would the power have remained in Jesus Christ and not been able to go into the unbeliever? Would it have been her own mental blockade preventing Jesus Christ from curing her?

One could also turn this around and ask if it would have mattered if it’s Jesus’ belief that He can cure anyone; surely He could even if they don’t believe. So why does it seem to be a requirement that they believe, first?

In a somewhat similar topic, there are many who have had a near death experience who come back allegedly from the ‘other side’ with the full belief that they are cured from their sickness/accident – even if the doctor doesn’t believe them – and true to their belief and/or after their experience, they are somehow miraculously cured:

Near-Death Experience Reveals Secret to Rapid Healing
Miraculous NDE Healings

So to end on that, what is my purpose for creating this article? We should be aware, yes, of the unsavory events going on in the world – and take action to help our fellow human beings make the right decisions regarding them – but we also should not let the negativity of these events become our focal point and drag us into a state of despair.

Many times I have thought about simply giving up and letting humanity do what it will in regards to the state of the world. Those who are awake, are awake, although they have the choice to go back to sleep – those who are not awake, have the option to wake or forever remain asleep. Perhaps attempts at waking those who are still asleep are going against the frame of free will. Perhaps there is a time and place for everyone and eventually everyone WILL wake up, whether in this life time or the next.

But that divine spark that is within all of us is what I cling to, and what I would like to do is at least plant the seed that there is something much more to life than we can ever imagine; and if our thoughts are indeed creating the world around us, then it would benefit us to focus more on the positive, loving aspects of humankind, the kindness and compassion we have, rather than the darker counterpart. And just as importantly, remember who we are, what we are, and what we’re capable of.

Thank you for reading, I love you all. God bless.

Which One Are You?: A Follower? Or a Leader? | The Answer May Shock You

No pun intended.

During these uncertain times, especially amidst the corona/vaccine agendas, it has become increasingly clear that there are, sadly, a great percentage of conformed followers than there are questioning leaders.

I’d like to highlight the following social experiments to demonstrate this. Now unless these experiments were staged, because I can’t rule that out, but I am going under the assumption that it has not, and that these are legitimate.

Similar experiments like these have been conducted in the past as well, with varying results. However, just from these modern time experiments, it is worrying the lengths that conformity will go to in order to just be one of the pack, and not be considered an “outlier”. We can see it in abundance today, that humanity hasn’t changed much in their line of thinking. If anything, we have become even more docile, even more compliant, even more unquestioning of even the most inane decisions as long as it comes from a position of “authority”.

The below experiments show the need that people have to follow the group, even if it doesn’t make sense, and/or even if it’s wrong. While the first couple of experiments shown do not involve the welfare of others, the third example most certainly does, and the results are terrifying.

Do you know where you’d stand? Are you being completely honest with yourself? Take a deep, long look at what’s going on in the world; how desperate some people are to fit in, to not be considered a “conspiracy theorist”, or a “right-wing nut” that doesn’t agree with the “majority of the population”… or a dumb imbecile that doesn’t even listen to experts/authority…

Would you be okay going against the grain even though EVERYONE ELSE around you is following a certain narrative?

EXPERIMENT 1. Social Conformity

This first experiment shows a lady who, though there is no reason for doing so, other than everybody else was doing it, conforms to a practice of standing up when a buzzer goes off, then sitting back down after a second or two. There is LITERALLY no reason to do this, but slowly but surely, even those who were not hired actors who initiated this social conditioning from the start, became conformed to following the original test subject.

What would you have done?

It’s easy to say that we wouldn’t participate without being in the same situation as them, but would we, or wouldn’t we? Can we admit when we may just well follow along with the pack for the sake of not being ostracized or be the odd one out? Or would we be strong enough in our own resolution to not follow along with silly mandates, even though everyone else around is?

Experiment 2. Herd Mentality

The below video shows a modern day example of the Asch experiment in progress. The Asch experiment wanted to see how many people would be influenced in giving the wrong answer, simply because everyone else gave the wrong answer. In this line up, 10 people are given the task of choosing which line matches the singular line shown on a separate stand. The first 9 people are all in on the scam to choose the wrong answer, leaving the 10th person, the actual test subject, to decide their answer. Will they trust their instinct and choose the right answer, even if they’re the ONLY ONE to choose it?

Or will they follow along with the crowd?

Herd mentality and peer pressure are very real social dilemmas that affect people in our day to day lives. While some people did not conform to the rest of the group, indicating that there are some willing to follow their intuition and not follow the crowd, even at the risk of ostracization or looking silly, we also can’t overlook the fact that some people may already know about the Asch experiment, and realize that it is a social test; thus skewering the results.

As it is, being different and the only one to choose a different answer, can seem isolating; but if one has confidence in themselves, and doesn’t care what other people think, especially when they’re sure the other people are wrong, can we see real leadership – and perhaps make us second guess our initial reaction/response.

Now, while the first two examples had nothing to do with anything serious, what if the matter literally comes to life and death? What if we are coerced, say… by an authority figure, to carrying out an act that does significant harm to another human being?

Think people will be any less obedient/conforming?

Take a look at the Milgram experiment, which was conducted in the 1960’s to test people’s obedience to authority figures.

Experiment 3. “Listen to the Authorities”

This video is highly disturbing, because it shows the lengths that people will go to simply in the name of listening to an authority figure; even if they’re against it, even if they want nothing more to do with a particular action, if they are commanded by someone in a presumed position of authority, they will continue to commit life-threatening harm on another being.

Source: youtube | Brian Burak | Milgrim Experiment [Milgram]

The gentleman who has the unfortunate task of “punishing” the learner is clearly distraught over the commands to keep inflicting shocks to the other participant. However, at the continued prompting of the experimenter, ends up going all the way to the end of the shock board – even after the learner ceases to respond.

It’s important to note that he is not FORCED to keep pressing the switch. He could refuse – in fact, does so on numerous occasions, yet at the insisting prods of the experimenter, concedes, albeit begrudgingly, and continues to press the switches.

It’s clear that he cares about the other person at the end of the shocks, yet because this authority figure tells him to continue – to inflict terrible pain even to the point of no response – he finishes the task until the experimenter tells him to stop.

The following short interview between the gentleman and the experimenter(s) happens next:

Experimenter: “How do you feel, by the way?”

Subject: “I feel all right, but I don’t like what’s happened to that fellow in there. He’s been hollering – we had to keep giving him shocks – I didn’t like that one bit. I mean, he wanted to get out, and you just kept going, kept throwing 450 volts. I didn’t like that. He wouldn’t even look in on that gentleman.”

Experimenter 2: “But who’s actually pushing the switch?”

Subject: “I was. But he kept insisting. I told him no, but he said it got to keep going. I told him it’s time we stopped when we got up to 195, 210 volts.”

Experimenter 2: “But why didn’t you just stop?”

Subject: “He wouldn’t let me! I wanted to stop.”

Think the test would have been any different if a cute, little puppy was involved? …Well, you’d be wrong.

In an incredibly inhumane experiment, the same experiment was conducted, but this time using a puppy, with real shocks. I obviously DO NOT CONDONE the following test, but wanted to mention it here for further reference to people’s compliance to authority figures:

(And I usually don’t condone cussing on this site, but in some cases it’s warranted and drives the point home rather succinctly)

Charles Sheridan and Richard King took this experiment one step further, but asked subjects to shock a puppy for every incorrect action it made. Unlike Milgram’s experiment, this shock was real. Exactly 20 out of 26 subjects went to the highest voltage.

Almost 80 percent. Think about that when you’re walking around the mall: Eight out of ten of those people you see would torture the shit out of a puppy if a dude in a lab coat asked them to.

Words at the end of the above video from Stanley Milgram that should be immortalized:

“The results, as I observe them in the laboratory, are disturbing. They raised the possibility that human nature cannot be counted on to insulate men from brutality and inhumane treatment at the direction of malevolent authority.

A substantial proportion of people do what they are told to do irrespective of the content of the act and without limitations of conscience. So long as they perceive that the command comes from a legitimate authority.

If in this study, an anonymous experimenter could successfully command adults to subdue a 50 year old man and force on him painful electric shocks against his protests, one can only wonder what government, with its vastly greater authority and prestige, can command of its subjects.

I believe we are all under a social experiment of some kind, by design. The corrupt world leaders are sitting back, watching people follow in line of the most ridiculous and dangerous mandates; laughing at how many actually follow and enforce these rules, while at the same time seeing just how far they can go before people start realizing that it is all a farce.

Then when you consider exactly how much of an influence that social media presents on our life, and the excessive amount of bots programmed to give the users the illusion that a vast amount of the population thinks a certain way, including collusions with the mainstream media – one can see how easily the public could be swayed into a “groupthink” mentality.

So how far can humanity be pushed to following a narrative, a guideline, a rule, if seemingly “everybody” else does it too, and especially when those in a “position of authority” command it?

This is the question that is being asked. And chillingly, a large portion of people would rather follow the herd mentality, than be a brave individual that goes against the status quo. Even if one’s own moral conscience is on the line.

I think it’s high time for all of us, as an individual, to really take a step back and gauge our own actions (and inactions, for that matter). Can we develop our own fortitude, our own strong constitution, to do what’s right – even if “the majority” or “authority figures” demand we do otherwise? What is “right”, for that matter? 

Our moral compass is being tampered with. We need to fine-tune it, and get back on track. Regardless of peer pressure or authoritative control. And we need to be brave enough to stand apart from the herd, and help lead the pack away from this destructive nature.

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader.
