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:

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.

Love is the Answer

And the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.

Well, I already revealed the punchline. Might as well get to the joke.

Do you know what it means to truly love someone?

I’m talking about a no holds barred, unconditional, absolutely liberating free love, that expects NOTHING in return?

Most of the time, when we talk about “love”, people think about relationships with their significant other, spouse, etc. And okay, that is part of it. But we also have different relationships, such as parent/child, neighborly, acquaintances, etc., etc., etc. Even when there are seemingly NO connections, this force can reach out and affect others in a way that we can’t even comprehend yet.

Love connects all of us. It is the light within each of us. If we don't have "love", the light is diminished. But if we have love and spread it, it reaches out and can connect everyone.

Now, when was the last time you felt miffed because the person you loved or cared about didn’t return the affections? Or did something to disappoint you? For that matter, when was the last time a random stranger made you feel upset and bitter?

I would surmise that it happens to everyone at least once. You will be hurt by someone, and you will hurt someone. We might not think about it in these terms, because it does take a step back to realize what the other person might be going through, but if we’re wise, then we’re willing to admit to ourselves that we’re all more alike than we think.

And there’s a popular saying, “Hurt people, hurt people.”

But did you know that there is a more significant type of love that can permeate the very world around us? And, subsequently, heal the hurt we’re all experiencing?

It's called "forgiveness".

Going through our life, I think most of us have encountered a situation we couldn’t quite fully explain. Perhaps some of us will have reasoned it away with some kind of “logical explanation”. Others, however, will accept it without a second thought. And then there are those, like myself, who will investigate it.

How did I come to this conclusion?

I'm glad you asked.

What would you have done, if one early morning, you were awoken by a sudden vibration, and with that, heard a voice within your mind asking you who would you forgive?

Think it’s crazy?

I would too.

Except it happened to me.

Past Experience

In 2016, I created this video and testimony (unfortunately, I do not have this youtube channel anymore and am unable to recover it) to share a few of my experiences on why I feel “forgiveness” and “love” are the most important factors in our life.

Now, earlier in my life, I was not religious; or very spiritual, if I’m going to be honest. As a matter of fact, I was negative, bitter, angry… I was not a positive person. Looking back, if I did not have the experiences that I had, I guarantee you I would be on a completely different path, and not relaying this message.

And I have to admit, I cannot take credit for turning from a negative, hateful person to one trying to promote peace and forgiveness. That was all… some kind of different force. Which is why this subject fascinates me. Left to my own devices, I would probably still be the bitter, vengeful, violent person I used to be.

Since I believe in questioning things to get to the root solution of a problem, I researched my experiences to see if others had anything similar. And, with a lot of things metaphysical, it is quite hard to find “scientific proof” of these matters. (Which I think is the point.) So we are left to our own reasoning and discernment.

Firstly, out of everything in the universe, why would I have these experiences? What’s the point? I can’t discount my own experiences. I can discount others, simply on it being anecdotal evidence. But my own? I have thought logically about where the messages I received came from. Or the different possibilities of what it could have been. I cannot stress this enough, “It did not come from my own being.” Something else was at work.

(Now, if you were into “conspiracy theories”, one could surmise that it was aliens. Or perhaps I was picking up on some kind of radio interference. Maybe even specific thoughts projected into my mind from some unknown force… You know, who knows what wild possibilities there are out in the world?)

Secondly, when I did find correlations between my experiences and others, noticed that theirs aligned almost exactly with what the messages I received was.

Again. Why?

And another interesting aspect of these mysterious events, is that these people’s testimonies? Happened when they were “near death”.

Near Death Experience

Termed N.D.E. – near death experiences, seemed to have given people glimpses into a connected consciousness that has, in a lot of cases, enlightened them into realizing that the most important thing in the world is how we treat each other.

We have to ask, why are some people getting these messages? Why, when practically “on the other side”, are people getting this understanding that we need to learn to love one another, and being sent back with this knowledge?

Can all of these people really be delusional? Or lying? Or going through some kind of hallucinogenic imagination? And in my own experience, I wasn’t anywhere near death, so why did I get the same message?

Logically speaking and critically thinking, I think it’s highly improbable that ALL of these people are lying or embellishing their testimonies. That seems even more improbable to me than people honestly having these experiences. Now, that’s not to say that some people aren’t lying. I’m sure there are. But between my own occurrences aligning with what they’re relaying? Especially when the only reason I even knew about all of these people’s testimonies is because I actively searched for it to help reveal what I went through. And these were the closest accounts that matched eerily identical to mine.

If you haven’t already, I recommend researching on this topic (nderf.org) to see what kinds of nuances and/or insights you might be able to glean from it.

This account from Howard Storm is one of the most powerful messages I’ve seen:

“Love the Person You’re With”

So let’s think about this for a moment. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people – even throughout history – have been claiming to have near death experiences and most of their encounters bring them back with a message to love one another.

Hm… where else have I heard this message before?

Oh yeah! The Bible!

Bible's Messages of Love and Forgiveness

The Bible is a prime example of a piece of history in which a man (the Son of God, Jesus Christ) spreads his message of love and forgiveness.

On Love:

34 A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
John 13:34
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:7-8
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Matthew 22:37-40

On Forgiveness:

37 Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Luke 6:37
25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
Mark 11:25
17 Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. 2 It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3 So watch yourselves. “If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. 4 Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.”
Luke 17:1-4

The Bible has been passed down throughout the centuries, even a few millennia, to bring us all a message of forgiveness and love.

Isn’t it interesting, that the one thing we were commanded to do by God / Jesus Christ (if we are to believe the Bible’s origins) is to love one another?  Even if the Bible weren’t true, even if you don’t believe in the Bible, THIS message is, by far, the most important understanding we can have.

Instead of the ultimate message being, “an eye for an eye”, “sweet revenge”, “world domination”, or any of the sort, it is one of simple, yet magnanimous significance.

So now we get to: 

Why is Forgiveness and Love So Important?

Why do they go hand in hand?

To love and forgive go hand in hand. They connect, and go together.

Imagine growing up in an environment in which you received no love. None at all. Or perhaps some form of corrupted, twisted, abusive kind of “love” that isn’t love at all? How do you think an individual like that will turn out?

And how strong would a person have to be to overcome severe trauma and possible indoctrination to a harmful and immoral background?

It would be extremely difficult, and an incredibly heart-breaking ordeal for someone to suffer through.

Sadly, it is something that some people are subjected to, even as soon as they’re born; a young, helpless child, who knows no other lifestyle.

Now some people can break out of this vicious cycle, and consciously think to themselves that they would never want someone else to go through what they had to. It takes strength, courage, and a strong sense of awareness and reflection to come to this realization.

For others, their hurt and pain is too much, or perhaps their childhood and/or social conditioning corrupted and warped their outlook and gave them a twisted version of what life is supposed to be. So they continue that cycle on others.

And hence, we come to the universe’s big secret, the way to reverse all the bad, evil, horrible actions that have been done upon each other.

We forgive, and love.

It sounds so simple, so easy, but it is quite possibly one of the hardest things in the world to do. After all, when someone wrongs us, it’s very easy to want to get revenge or become bitter and spiteful and want nothing more to do with this person. But I believe this is a grave mistake.

Love is a healing power, that we should not just save for our direct “loved ones”. To truly grow in unconditional love, involves loving everyone in the world. That is how we get to truly connect with one another and spread the compassion and positivity. One person’s actions will affect another, and so on and so forth.

And yes, we will occasionally run into the issue of people taking advantage of others for this forgiveness and love and compassion, but I truly think that once this love and forgiveness grabs hold and connects us to each other, we will lose this desire to want to cause harm to others, and we will become less greedy, less selfish, less hateful, and start to grow in love, truth, integrity and light.
