Intuition may be defined as a natural ability or power that makes it possible to know something without any proof or evidence.
A “gut” feeling you might say.
Maybe you feel uneasy about a choice or situation. You have recurring thoughts about the same topic. You slow down and feel clarity. Your dreams are vivid. Perhaps you feel illogically confident about a decision.
You just know.
For 21 months, I’ve been trying to get to the bottom of things. Anything from why I haven’t gotten a haircut in over a year to what occurred in the decades leading up to March 2020 that created the conditions for such oppressive tyranny to be unleashed on humanity. I moved across the United States from Arizona to North Carolina. I’m exploring completely new ways to uplift the underserved separate from coaching and consulting. I believe the Age of Aquarius demands we step up to life’s next level and shed the identities bestowed upon us in the Age of Pisces.
EGO V. SOUL
Ego is the latin word for “I” and is our conscious thoughts and beliefs. The labels we give ourselves. It is our sense of identity. It determines our perspective of the external world and is mostly self-serving. The ego seeks outside recognition and perceives life as a competition. It desperately tries to preserve itself. It’s the mask we wear in public and the persona we feel we have to portray.
Conversely, the human soul is guided by intuition or signs from the universe. It’s being in what Hungarian psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi called the flow state. It’s the essence of who you are, your true nature. It’s continually connected to, and in the service of, the energy fields that connect us all. The soul seeks to express inner authenticity. It views all life as a gift and tries to preserve the best in and for others. I like to think our soul is our most authentic and natural self.
Some say the ego is or controls our conscious mind. They might also say the soul is or controls our unconscious and is connected to the collective unconscious.
For more on the distinction between ego and soul, consider reading Loyalty to Your Soul by Drs. H. Ronald and Mary R. Hulnick.
In Dr. Bruce H. Lipton’s research, he uncovered deeper truths about the five brainwave states – gamma, beta, alpha, theta, and delta. He discovered that the gamma, beta, and alpha brainwave states are strongly linked to consciousness and theta and delta are connected to, and expressions of, unconsciousness. For the first six years of human life, we are in the highly programmable theta state (gateway to learning, memory, and intuition) recording vast amounts of information from the environment surrounding us. This is designed to acculturate us, to teach us how to survive, and to make us socially acceptable. In those formative years, children don’t have the ability to consciously evaluate the information being downloaded. Around age seven, children move out of theta into the beta brainwave (conscious judgment, problem solving, and focused activity). We then make conscious choices, often for the rest of our lives, based upon what was downloaded into our unconscious from birth to age six.
Metaphorically, your conscious is like your computer’s random access memory (RAM) and your unconscious is akin to data in its hard disk drive (HDD) or cloud storage. Dr. Joe Dispenza discovered that the conscious mind can process 2,000 bits of information per second, while the unconscious can process 400 billion bits per second.
Your ego is the means by which you use the five senses (touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste) to engage the world. Your soul arrives on Earth highly unique with a defined Earth school curriculum. The unconscious is absolutely perfect, but it is largely ignored in western society as our parents and community acculturate us to be acceptable to an ego-based society. Parental figures unwittingly shape our ego to mirror the ideal version of what they weren’t. Somewhere in human history, parents forgot that their children are their life’s greatest teacher. The child has authority and sovereignty. It came through the parents, but is not theirs to control. The child’s soul deserves to be honored for its perfection and Earth school curriculum.
Dr. Shefali Tsabary once said, “Release your attachments to how things “ought” to be and instead surrender to how they actually are.”
Earth-bound souls have deep desire to be seen, to uncover meaning in their human life events, and to navigate their Earth school curriculum on their terms. Swiss psychiatrist Carl G. Jung details this in his work describing the four life stages. Jung posits that each soul finds meaning in their life through the athlete (preoccupied with how the physical body looks), warrior (be and get the very best, continual comparison to others), statement (make a difference in the world), and spirit (spiritual beings having a human experience) stages. Few humans reach the spirit stage because doing so requests that you deeply comprehend you are on this planet, but not of it. You step out of your conscious ego mind and physical body, and understand what you actually are and see Earth for what it truly is. You finally realize you are an energy-based soul having a human experience.
You are a soul-based feeling machine that thinks, not an ego-based thinking machine that feels.
The more I study deep thinkers such as Jung, Friedrich Neitszche, Paramahansa Yogananda or Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, the more I realize just how important individual sovereignty is to our soul being able to accomplish its purpose on Earth.
Sovereignty is freedom from external control. It is rightful status. Independence. Having your own prerogative or authority.
Individual sovereignty appears to be key to solving many of the manufactured ills plaguing society. Individuality is the cornerstone of responsibility and meaning. Fascism and tyranny occur when people abandon their sovereignty for the perceived good of an intellectually fabricated group. For centuries, tyrants have segregated people into fake groups, carried out false flags, and suppressed knowledge of the soul’s limitlessness and Earth’s true nature. Humans were intentionally kept in a perpetual state of fear. Local news media have been bought by corporate hierarchies and converted into propaganda and opinion centers. The K-12 education system taught you what your ego needed to know so you’d work 40+ hours per week and not rebel against the corrupt system and tax collector. They kept you oppressed and on the proverbial hamster wheel only offering sensory pleasures – the car, the house, the vacation – and two days off each week with the occasional holiday. The discovery of your soul’s true purpose on Earth was purposely not addressed.
As writer Ayn Rand said, “Collectivism is the ancient principle of savagery … Collectivism is not the ‘New Order of Tomorrow.’ It is the order of a very dark yesterday.”
Somehow, that dark yesterday made its way to present day.
I’m reading and listening to Peterson more. He said, “And if you think tough men are dangerous, wait until you see what weak men are capable of.” The tyrants who used to control society seem to be spiritually weak and controlled by their egos, materialism, greed, and power. Through bribery, blackmail, human trafficking, pedophilia, and canceling any voice that confronts the official narrative, they slowly infiltrated every facet of society to coerce you into accepting a false collectivist narrative. You are ruled by those you’re not allowed to criticize and you’d be well served to identify who those people are.
As Roman poet Juvenal said, “Give them bread and circuses and they will never revolt.” Roughly 1,900 years have passed, and bread has morphed into processed GMO calories, and circuses have become professional football, basketball, and other brutal competitive sport. Through focus on superficial public entertainment, truly important issues and fundamentally uplifting solutions were rarely, if ever, openly discussed.
The politics of distraction ruled collectivist societies.
Today, you’re watching the dissolution of collectivist hierarchy. You’re being shown, in real time, just how dark, unethical, and evil the tyrants have been. The things that once happened behind closed doors are now being shown to you transparently. You’re a key stakeholder in collectivism being replaced by individual sovereignty. It’s uncomfortable to watch, but it’s a fascinating movie. The astrologists refer to this transition as the end of the Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. America’s NASA refers to what’s happening on Earth as the precession of the equinoxes (or axial precession). Earth’s magnetic poles are shifting and there’s nothing humans can do but sit in the energetic and emotion-filled transformations.
You choose what you believe to be the root cause, but today’s manufactured fear and distractions are increasingly irrelevant. The fear is being replaced by transparent discussion about the causes of the darkness and how individuals can ascend into higher levels of consciousness. People are reclaiming their sovereignty taking ownership and responsibility of every facet of their lives. In the Age of Pisces, humans found meaning by associating with defined groups – a university, religion, major league sports team, corporation, etc. In the Age of Aquarius, humans are and will find meaning in simply being, trusting their intuition, and knowing they have answers inside themselves to their life’s most pressing issues.
Yes, the central systems you know of today will be replaced by highly localized versions. I don’t know when, but my intuition leads me to believe we’ll soon come together to design completely new versions of society community by community. We’ll soon discover that pursuing sensory pleasure is a luxury, but the pursuit of meaning is a moral obligation. Human civilization is on the precipice of a quantum leap forward.
For decades, America has been intentionally and underhandedly morphed into a collectivist culture focused on working as a group, doing what’s “best” for society, and behaving selflessly. Through critical race theory, compulsory K-12 education, and salaried jobs, your soul… your individuality was suppressed.
The 1960s hippies may have had it right. Peace. Love. Freedom. Somewhere along the way, they traded authenticity and sovereignty for the financial security of collectivism. Then, they became helicopter parents pushing their millennial children down the same misaligned path. The millennial generation pushed back against the ego-driven collectivism and are finishing the job their parents couldn’t in asserting individual soul-based sovereignty.
LIFE IS SUFFERING
The 18 months leading up to the December 4th, 2021 total solar eclipse was full of suffering for me. The pain, distress, and hardship was debilitating. Whether the suffering was physical or emotional for you, I’m sure you experienced it in some manner. I read somewhere that 2020 and 2021 were designed to help Earth’s souls uncover deeper positive meaning and the lessons learned in their life’s hardships. I also heard that time period described as a set of increasing emotional intensity experiences to help us shed our Age of Pisces identities. However you choose to honor that season of your life, I hope you are no longer triggered by the people and events that previously evoked negative emotion in you.
In the collectivist society, those in power used their control of the mainstream media, Facebook, Twitter, politicians, athletes, celebrities, and more to feed much of humanity a steady diet of fear and stories focused on rights and freedoms. What they know, but aren’t telling you, is repetition increases belief. It’s called the “illusory truth effect.” If you hear a blatant lie more than twice, you’re likely to believe it even if you’ve known the truth for years.
Facebook was forced to admit in court, in a lawsuit filed by journalist John Stossel, that their third party “fact checkers” were nothing but “protected opinion” they used to censor viewpoints that went contrary to the narrative Facebook wanted to disseminate. The repetition of a message was an attempt to keep us focused on and committed to the groups we self identified with. The tyrants want you to be reliant on them, their groups, their message. This over focus on ego with little to no focus on our soul has contributed to a rise in suffering. From Mao Zedong to Joseph Stalin to Adolph Hitler to Pol Pot, hundreds of millions of humans lost their lives unnecessarily in the name of the illusory collectivist “greater good.”
In the Age of Pisces, meaning in human life came from what you learned as a result of suffering. The Buddhists discussed this in The Four Noble Truths. They are the truth of suffering, the truth of the cause of suffering, the truth of the end of suffering, and the truth of the path that leads to the end of suffering. Suffering exists. It has a cause and an end. Years ago, I started calling my coaching process the pain-to-purpose journey because I intuitively connected the dots that the fastest way to heal ourselves of previous and early life traumas is to become the thing we wished we would’ve had between birth and age six.
Be the person you needed when you were younger. I did not come up with this phrase, but it sums up my process and beliefs well. When I contemplated suicide in May 2019, this ethos helped me regain emotional strength.
For the approximately 2,165 years leading up to 2021 (or 2012 as the Mayan calendar suggested), hardship was the vehicle by which humans would learn their soul’s lessons or Earth school curriculum. For roughly 12,000 years, half of what is called Earth’s Great Year, the universe organized itself around delivering to the human ego physical and emotional challenges to foster learning. It was designed to move us move closer to Jung’s spirit stage.
Neitszche said, “To live is to suffer, to survive is to find meaning in the suffering.”
Today, the absolute best thing you can do is deeply understand human suffering – its causes, its manifestations, and its solutions. Then, pick up the absolutely heaviest burden of suffering you can carry… and carry it for the rest of your life. You will find enormous purpose and meaning in lessening others’ suffering. What has struck me deeply about the pandemic has been how quickly people have turned on their neighbor simply because an authority instructed them to do so. Instead of loving thy neighbor as thyself, they’re behaving exactly as the tyrants repetitive messaging told them to. Suffering spreads.
Your capacity to allow those around you to live a truth completely opposite yours, without shutting off your compassion for them, is a manifestation of how emotionally intelligent and awakened you are and how powerful your love is.
Humanity is learning to walk into an ascended version of Earth with less suffering. It’s possible to build beautiful lives and societies independent of the hierarchical tyrannical structures that transferred wealth upwards for centuries. Many souls are learning individual responsibility. They’re taking ownership of their everyday choices. The great resignation is happening. Entrepreneurship and the gig economy is expanding. In droves, people are moving out of urban areas. Adults are experimenting with new hobbies and learning experientially. They’re investing in self awareness.
TRUST YOUR INTUITION
What is your gut feeling, your intuition, telling you about society’s current events?
How ready are you to identify as a soul-based being living in Jung’s statement or spirit stages?
Have you given up contemporary bread and circuses to take responsibility for all of your life’s experiences?
In what ways are you reducing others suffering and thereby discovering more about your soul’s purpose?
Global communications firm Edelman annually shares the results of its Trust Barometer. The 2021 results were an indictment of tyrannical hierarchical structures. From the report, “In fact, none of the societal leaders we track—government leaders, CEOs, journalists and even religious leaders are trusted to do what is right.”
The age of blindly following external authorities is dead. It’s time to no longer believe in them… and it is time to believe in yourself, your neighbor, and in one another.
Thankfully, according to Edelman, “people in my local community” and “people like myself” are the most highly trusted across the 28 international markets surveyed and more than 33,000 respondents.
A genuinely catastrophic pandemic doesn’t require 24/7 advertising, marketing campaigns, and endless propaganda. Psychological operations require those things. Tyrants covered our faces, locked us in our homes, enacted the biggest wealth transfer in human history, used protected opinion (not facts) to censor us, made us show papers to buy food but not to vote, and force medicated us against International Law Universal Declaration on bioethics and human rights, Code of Federal Regulations on protection of human subjects, and The Nuremberg Code 1947 on Informed Consent. Many would say the lockdowns were a form of psychological torture and a crime against humanity. What was done to humanity is simply unforgivable.
The idea that healthy people are endangering others simply by breathing is absolutely wild to me. Most people do not want to admit, or even believe, that they were duped by the tyrants and that their perception of reality has been manipulated.
The CEOs of the five biggest airlines sat in front of a congressional panel recently with two questioning the validity of wearing masks on planes. And, I’ve yet to hear of a major media source interviewing a homeopathic health expert about the benefits of diet, exercise, sleep, and sunlight. Or, I’ve not heard of interviews of eastern medicine practitioners about the advantages of herbal, sound, or energy healing.
If something about the current state of society is triggering your intuition, it must be questioning time.
Although we’ve been taught patience and the importance of a slower paced life over the last 18 months, we can no longer wait for second comings. Jesus Christ, Muhammad, nor Gautama Buddha are returning to Earth. The truth is that there will be no miracles here. But, my intuition tells me the consciousness these ascended beings were is returning though. We no longer need an external savior. We are saving our own souls. It’s time we live the examples each left for us.
John F. Kennedy once said, “If not us, who? If not now, when?”
It is time you trust your intuition.
