Are You Living a Conscious Life?

Elva Thompson, Contributor

“Chance is but a name for Law not recognised.” ~ The Kybalion

“A life lived of choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived of chance is a life of unconscious creation.” ~Neale Donald Walsch

If most people were asked if they lived a conscious life they would probably answer yes – is it not self evident? Consciousness is consciousness, right?

But if a consciousness has been indoctrinated from birth with other people’s ideas, prejudices and truths…. is that a ‘conscious’ consciousness? – or is it a sense bound awareness programmed to be a clone of a greedy, egoistic materialistic culture. A consciousness living life on auto pilot – stuck in a daily routine of sameness – and mouthing the rhetoric of someone else’s thinking in a life that stands still. The mystic Gurdjieff called this state a constant waking sleep.

Is your life standing still – passing you by? Are you tossed like a matchstick on the waves of chance – worried about everything – not knowing what you want or where you are going – if the answer is yes then you are at the mercy of unconscious creation.

Thunderbolts of Unseen Action

Our thoughts are energetically alive, they are thunderbolts of unseen action and if not controlled can wreak havoc in our lives. We are not taught that our thinking creates our reality and when shit hits the fan we call it bad luck – or that’s life! When in truth it has got nothing to do with luck and life….. and everything to do with our thinking. But we don’t know the metaphysical laws that govern this ‘whirled’ so we carry on as normal – do what we always do because that’s what we’re used to doing. We don’t realise that our lives are a reflection of our habitual state of mind.

A Bit of a Shock

When we investigate our thinking and begin to observe our thoughts we are likely in for a shock. It’s quite sobering to discover how much of our fleeting lives we spend bogged down in the cancelled cheque of the past – dwelling on grievances and personal sleights – or day dreaming and wishful thinking on the promissory note called the future. The only time we are truly alive is in the negotiable now – and most of us it would seem don’t visit very often!

Anchored Consciousness

It’s not easy to change our lives – break free of worn out thought patterns and routines. We have to take control in the now and live the life we want, and not let others interfere or tell us what we can or cannot do – what we deserve or don’t deserve.

This is easier said than done but if we want to have a smoother, calmer panorama in life we must persevere…and take stock of the people in our lives – and ask the question: are they inspirational and uplifting, or destructive and exhausting?

Unfortunately toxic people don’t come with a warning sticker plastered on their foreheads but we’ve all met them – in our home life, at work or down the pub. The arrogant superior type who likes to put us down – the spiteful gossiper who can’t tell fact from fiction – the perpetual whining victim who blames everybody else for their circumstances – the control freak who knows everything about everything and can’t wait to ‘put us straight’ – the envious who just hate it when something good happens to us… and the angry, resentful Mr. Negative who has nothing good to say about anything or anybody.

These mindsets make it very hard for us to live a conscious life – they deplete our energy – fracture our thought patterns and anchor us to unconscious creation….in other words they bring chaos into our lives and need to be avoided like the plague.

Conscious Creative Living

Conscious living is about being mindful – having mental clarity not confusion. It means taking responsibility for our lives – packing our own parachute as they say in sky diving circles and not leaving it to others.

Creative living involves a continuous and progressive cleansing – a purification of soul and body.

The change from unconscious creation to conscious action begins in our thinking…. We choose what we want in life rather than settling for the cards we are dealt. Our life is present – it is directed action in motion forever moving with the flow of life.

Re-Connecting With the One Life

“To seek freedom is the only driving force I know. Freedom to fly off into that infinity out there. Freedom to dissolve; to lift off; to be like the flame of a candle, which, in spite of being up against the light of a billion stars, remains intact, because it never pretended to be more than what it is: a mere candle.” ~Carlos Castaneda, Don Juan: the Sorcerer.

Living consciously means we are totally aware of our surroundings – alert in the now and not lost in some nebulous no mans land. Conscious awareness observes the ways of nature, sees the harmony of the dance of life and death. Revels in the singing of the wind, the sshh of waves upon shingle, welcomes the warm sun upon bare skin and marvels at the intricate patterns of butterflies. A conscious life intuitively recognises the energy of the One Life that powers all the dna spacesuits on this planet whether furred, scaled or feathered – feels the pulse of the one Heart in all creation…and knows that separation is just an illusion cast by the matrix to keep us in the sacrificial game.

In the words of the metaphysical poet Thomas Traherne:

“You will never enjoy the world alright till the sea itself floweth in your veins, till you are clothed with heavens and crowned with the stars; and perceive yourself to be the sole heir of the whole world, and more than so, because men are in it who are every one the sole heir as well as you…..”

Giant Jesus Figure Appears Above Argentinian City

Perhaps this is a sign of the times, many people are losing it…after seeing this image which resembles Jesus Christ. This Christ-like figure, has captivated the internet – yet the mainstream news seems to ignore it. Was this a some kind of projection or digital manipulation of some kind? People are searching for answers, as the symbolism of this simply cannot be ignored.

Let’s face it, the world as we know it is in trouble. Many people are acting bizarre over different issues and some cannot even think for themselves any longer. They are caught up in the phony culture of all material things.

Giant Jesus Figure Appears Above Argentinian City

One witness named Monica Aramayo, managed to capture a photograph of this spectacle. What an incredible sight it must have been, to see this in person. Seemingly hovering over top of the Argentinean city of San Salvador de Jujuy (in the northwest part of Argentina) was this Christ-like figure. This area is near the southern end of the Humahuaca Canyon, where wooded hills meet up with the lowlands.

The event took place back on Tuesday, May 14th. The surrounding settlements of Jujuy Province also noticed this giant Jesus in the sky. As seen in the photograph, Jesus appears to be peering out from the clouds, wearing a crown with his arms extended.

The image strikes a powerful pose into the minds of the people. The image of this holy figure, continues to go viral on the internet, as more people learn about it. Some are comparing this image to the Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil overlooking the city.

One person named Mariela Romano said, “The Lord will soon come for us all and we should be ready.

Romina Salinas said, “I personally only see the sun coming through the clouds, but people see what they want to see.”

Someone else said: “Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.”

Rather incredibly, not everyone was able to see the Jesus figure in sky. Some wonder if their faith is strong enough. Is this merely an unusual formation of clouds in the sky? Likely not, it is far too amazing to be such a occurance.

Scientists Discover 1,000-Year-Old Shamanic Pouch Containing Cocaine and Ayahuasca

Elias Marat, TMU
Waking Times

Archaeologists have found evidence of powerful psychotropic drugs inside of a 1,000-year-old leather pouch discovered in the Bolivian Andes. The pouch likely belonged to an indigenous shaman and contained traces of a dizzying array of plant-based psychoactive substances, ranging from coke to the ingredients used to brew ayahuasca, along with paraphernalia used to prepare and consume it.

The pouch—which is comprised of three fox snouts stitched together—contained two wooden tablets for grinding the plants into snuff, a woven headband, and a pipe-like tube with two human hair braids affixed to it that was used to smoke the psychotropic plants.

An analysis of the pouch revealed traces cocaine, harmine, benzoylecgonine, dimethyltryptamine (DMT), bufotenine and possibly psilocin, a chemical component of psychedelic mushrooms. The find constitutes the earliest evidence of the ceremonial use of ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic brew associated with the Amazon jungle.

Ayahuasca is a fairly loose term that describes a range of shamanic concoctions, with the main components typically being harmine and dimethyltryptamine. There has long been a consensus in the scientific community that psychedelic substances were commonly used by ancient cultures for their hallucinogenic effects, but the current find provides proof of their use for millennia.

The expedition and analysis was led by a team from the University of California, Berkeley, who made the find along the now-dry Sora River valley in the southwest of Bolivia back in 2010. There is evidence that humans have inhabited the region at least as far back as 4,000 years.

According to a press release from the university, the “remarkably well-preserved ritual bundle was found by archaeologists at 13,000-foot elevations in the Lipez Altiplano region of southwestern Bolivia, where llamas and alpacas roam. The leather kit dates back to the pre-Inca Tiwanaku civilization, which dominated the southern Andean highlands from about 550 to 950 A.D.”

The find shows that human society was capable of not only using single plants to embark on psychedelic journeys and hallucinations, but were also adept at combining plant ingredients into potent compounds that amplified and lengthened their trips.

Head archaeologist Melanie Miller of the UC Berkeley Archaeological Research Facility announced:

“This is the first evidence of ancient South Americans potentially combining different medicinal plants to produce a powerful substance like ayahuasca.”

The range of different substances has led researchers to believe that the pouch is evidence of a major transcontinental trading zone capable of bringing medicinal plants and substances across great distances.

Miller explained to Science Mag:

“Whoever had this bag of amazing goodies… would have had to travel great distances to acquire those plants [or] they had really extensive exchange networks.”

For example, while some of the chemical traces were derived from plants grown throughout South America, they are not known to have grown in the Andean region where the pouch was found. Likewise, the chemical harmine—a common ingredient in Ayahuasca—is known to only grow in the Amazonian lowlands.

Anthropologist Jose Capriles of Penn State told ScienceAlert:

“We already knew that psychotropics were important in the spiritual and religious activities of the societies of the south-central Andes, but we did not know that these people were using so many different compounds and possibly combining them together.

This is the largest number of psychoactive substances ever found in a single archaeological assemblage from South America.”

Miller noted:

“Our findings support the idea that people have been using these powerful plants for at least 1,000 years, combining them to go on a psychedelic journey, and that ayahuasca use may have roots in antiquity.”

Aliens Among Humans and the Planetary Transmigration

People have always wondered if there’s life in other planets, if aliens ever visited humans and if they left descendants on Earth somehow.

What people don’t always know, is that aliens might be closer than they imagine. They can be next door. According to many different cultures, there are alien souls trapped in human bodies.

What is Planetary Transmigration

In occult philosophy it is said that humans live on seven different planets, evolving continuously from minerals until the soul reaches its final destination, which involves reuniting with God, or unity. In Hinduism, planets are considered living beings and have a specific time to exist. Like all living things, they die at some stage.

When planets cease to exist, the creatures that live in that planet have two possible destinations: if they have evolved enough to continue their journey, they incarnate in a new planet, where they will develop other faculties in order to continue the process of evolution.

However, if some of them haven’t absorbed all experiences that the planet offered – as it is believed that each planet is “programmed” in a way that enables creatures to develop a certain aspect of consciousness – some of them might migrate to a planet to repeat the same experience. This process is called planetary transmigration or transmigration of the soul.

Aliens Living on Earth – Sumerian, Hindu, Egyptian and Mayan Gods Were Extraterrestrials

According to Spiritism theories, a long time ago, a group of extraterrestrials arrived on Earth to repeat the human experience in this planet, since they could not continue the experience with the rest of their fellows. Having completed the human experience before, they were much more technologically advanced than Earthlings.

In many different religions and traditions, there are references to advanced beings that coexisted with primitive humans in ancient times. It appears in the Sumerian tradition, as the gods described in the Sumerian tablets are believed to have arrived from other planet that exploded.

It also appears in the Hindu tradition. The Mahabharata along with the Ramayana, the most important books of Hinduism, bring information about gods that had flying machines and could contact other beings from other planetary systems.

The Egyptian mythology is filled with references to beings with a certain knowledge and technology that could only be consistent with a more advanced civilization. There are also images of flying objects in the walls of Egyptian caves that look exactly like those described in the Vedas.

Mayan mythology also makes references to beings from other planets that arrived on Earth and genetically modified the earthlings, making the primitive human look more like them. Some argue that the Bible saying “God created men in His own image”, refers to these gods that engineered humans, helping in the transition from animal to man.

In short, the same history has been told in all religions and traditions, under different names and with the elements of each culture.

Extraterrestrials and Atlantis – the Lost Continent

Legends tell of aliens arriving on flying machines and genetically modified humans who mixed their DNA with normal humans and then…. what? If the original planets no longer existed, where did they go, and if they stayed, how come there is no trace of them anymore?

There are many possible explanations for that, but one possibility is that when the great cataclysm that destroyed Atlantis happened, the alien technology disappeared under the waters.

They escaped to Egypt, Europe and South America (it’s said that this is what allowed these people to have a great amount of information about alien visitors in their myths and legends) where they lived among humans. Without technology, they died.

The Reincarnation Process – Alien Souls, Human Bodies

Spiritism belief holds that that after death, the extraterrestrial visitors were reincarnated among humans, being born again in human bodies. The reincarnation process is the same for every human being on Earth and with aliens it was no different.

Once born in human bodies, with human limitations, all memories from previous lives were erased from the conscious mind, as it is said that the brain doesn’t support all the information from all incarnations, keeping only what is necessary for one life (the rest remains in the unconscious mind and is never lost).

Until now the aliens continue to reborn among humans. Without knowing their true origins, these people live normally keeping only a slight sensation that there might be much more out there than their ordinary lives.
