Oh Kari, you’re absolutely correct in your assessment! In fact, just recently I was speaking to a friend about the subject of social media and online marketing, and he commented that of all the potential markets in the world, Africa is the least ‘saturated’.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: the Internet (more specifically, the World Wide Web) is the most significant man-made phenomenon in modern history, giving rise to so much possibility for people from all around the world to enrich their lives and their Way of Being!
I recall back in 1995, the World Wide Web began creating a real buzz around the world, and suddenly a whole new spectrum of possibilities opened up regarding global communication. This gave rise to Social Media, which has brought an unfathomable abundance of information and new opportunities to billions of people on planet Earth.
It is estimated (by the McKinsey Global Institute) that by 2030, 50% of all Africans will be living in cities, allowing for much easier access to technology. Kari, your assessment of Africa being “the new centre of evolved human beings” is of particular interest, considering that the population of Africa currently stands at 1,111 billion—there’s that master number again! For those who are not familiar with Numerology, 11:11 signifies, amongst other things, a new phase of development—and this is precisely what is in the process of manifestation on this incredible continent right now!
In South Africa there is a vast emerging middle class, who have access to smart phone technology, and are therefore actively participating in Mobile Social Media… In terms of global consciousness, I believe that this exponential growth of Social Media networks to be the single most powerful platform from which the new age of human consciousness is being facilitated—and Africa is poised to absorb it like a sponge!
So what relevance does the Internet/World Wide Web/Social Media have to global consciousness, and how, in turn, do we as individuals gain the benefit of its infinite potential as regards our own consciousness?
Well, as I’ve already mentioned, the online era has expanded the capacity for communication immeasurably, allowing us to share ideas with people almost anywhere in the world, and have untold amounts of knowledge available quite literally at our fingertips. Just think about it—little more than twenty years ago, we might at best have two or three pen pals in other countries, whom we might write to or receive a letter from once a month or so… Now we have hundreds (if not thousands) of contacts in our social media networks with whom we might have a conversation any time we choose!
Globally then, information is widely accessible, where we have up-to-the-minute news feeds on international (and even localised) events of all kinds, data on every imaginable subject and live visual communication… It is virtually boundless and constantly growing, indeed multiplying with greater frequency as technology advances. The world is a ‘much smaller place’ than it was, say fifteen years ago, and becomes ever smaller, as everything becomes faster and more streamlined. Consciously, the world is more ‘plugged-in’ than ever before in the recent history of mankind.
We hold within our DNA all knowledge that has ever existed and will ever exist, yet as Kari has mentioned before, we are only capable of utilising a fraction of that knowledge—and it will be quite some time before we begin to expand that capacity to any significant extent.
Let me put it to you this way, dear readers: Whereas the knowledge held in our DNA can really only be comprehended if we apply ourselves to consciousness in a quantum sense, the Internet is a kind of third dimension reflection of the same—it is man-made, censured by the superficial extent of our capacity for consciousness and only available within a particular paradigm, yet it is vast beyond the ability for any single human being to absorb in a physical lifetime.
One of the drawbacks of having all this information available to us, is that there tends to be just too much! As with everything that exists in the Universe, with the good, always comes the bad… Despite regulations and ‘policing’, there is a great deal of inauthentic use, such as Internet crime, hacking, misleading information and so on—I mean, if you can learn off the Internet, in minutely accurate detail, how to construct an explosive device that could potentially kill many people, then there is something seriously wrong!
Remember what I’ve said before, that 99% of humanity live in Scarcity, and in terms of consciousness, the chances are that we’re more susceptible to attracting the negativity so prolifically available. If, however, we were to utilise the Internet intuitively (i.e. with our being as opposed to our brain), and from an abundant disposition, we might consider it as a virtual extension of our stored and accessible knowledge, almost like a gigantic external hard-drive, where we call up information as and when we require it.
I must stress again though, that we live in a third dimension physical world which is largely superficial, and that the true potential of our consciousness lies beyond the perimeters of this dimension, in the spiritual dimensions of infinity.
There is evidence in the study of our DNA, though, that points towards an upsurge of consciousness not seen in millennia. As a species, it is natural that we should evolve, yet due to more advanced means of observation and research, we find that the real evolution is going on ‘behind the scenes’ so to speak.
David Wilcock, author of the ‘Convergence’ series how we are in the process of major changes in our Solar System, which ultimately lead to changes in our DNA structure:
“The Solar System itself is moving into an area where the energy is more highly charged. That higher-charged energy is in turn exciting the plasma and causing more of it to form, so you see more luminosity, more brightness. This energy is then flowing into the Sun, which in turn emits the energy and spreads it out along its equatorial plane, which is called the Ecliptic. This in turn is saturating interplanetary space, which causes the solar emissions to travel more quickly and charge up the energy on the planets.
“And this is conscious energy that is changing how the planet works, how it functions, and what kind of life it supports. The harmonics of the DNA spiral itself are altering. That's the real, hidden cause of spontaneous mass evolutions in previous epochs of time. All this is happening all at the same time, and it's all working up to a crescendo where there is going to be a sudden shift.”
Over the past 20-30 years, there has been a marked increase in the number of children born with ‘extra’ DNA, so-called ‘mutations’ resulting from this higher charged energy suffusing the Solar System. There are also instances of people developing these changes to their DNA during their lifetimes. In fact, genetically, humanity could be evolving into a new species—and a far more conscious one at that.
In his book, ‘Walking Between the Worlds’, Greg Braden explains it thus: “If we define ourselves genetically, this new species looks different in terms of specific DNA, though their bodies may appear as the familiar bodies of friends and loved ones. On a molecular level, beyond the seeing of the naked eye, they have allowed themselves to become genetic possibilities that were not available just a few short years ago. In the open literature there are reports of a phenomenon that scientists have named spontaneous genetic mutation. They are called spontaneous because they appear to have developed during the course of an individual's lifetime in response to a life challenge rather than appear as a new form of the code detected at birth. In these instances, the genetic code has learned to express itself in a new way that serves the individual's survival.”
There is so much literature and new learning regarding the topic of global consciousness, that it is difficult to convey its depth and breadth within the confines of these conversations. However, I urge you, our followers out there, to allow your thinking to wander beyond ‘what you know’ towards ‘what you don’t know that you don’t know’. Our imagination and our intuition are the keys that unlock our higher consciousness, transcending the third dimension world we live in and our day-to-day experiences of life as physical beings. The collective sum of more and more people exploring the limitless boundaries of their potential gives rise to this global consciousness we speak of.
We are constantly receiving messages from the Universe to guide us on our individual paths to enlightenment, yet I believe that mankind as a whole is also receiving similar guidance—millennia back in the form of human ‘messengers’. Depending on your religion, you might perceive them as different people. We have had empires and we have had wars, the last two world wars taking place in the last century. Are these messages too, from which humanity might learn if we collectively chose to become conscious of them?
What messages are we now receiving, and how do they differ from those of the past? Could you perhaps shed some light on the matter for us, Kari?
To my understanding, the information and messages from the Universe have always been there, we just haven’t been mature and ready enough to listen and understand. Yet some have, and we call them masters, someone so unique that they had to be a part of God…
So what is actually going on?
We talk about a shift in consciousness, Guy. What is that really? It is something more than increased consciousness, as that would just be to increase the amount of knowledge we already have.
Let us use religion as an example, as this is a subject that has had a huge impact on us, no matter what we as individuals believe in or do not believe in.
Everything we know about religion is placed into different boxes, which is how our human brain works. We want things to be logical, and in order for it all to make sense, everything related to Christianity is placed in the ‘Christianity box’. Everything related to Islam is put in the ‘Islamic box’, everything related to Judaism is put in the ‘Jewish box’ and so on…
Depending on what you believe in and where you live, there will most likely be one of these boxes that is bigger than the others, because you know more about what’s in it. Let us say that it is the Christianity box. The information in this box will be more dominant than the Islamic box, and therefore, there is an increased possibility that it will be used to justify that Islam is wrong; that there is too much that doesn’t fit together with the Christianity-box. Or maybe it is the other way around—it doesn’t matter…
If you decided that you wanted to learn more about Islam, you would gain an increased consciousness about Islam, and you would need a bigger box.
A shift in consciousness, on the other hand, is when you realise that the basic truth that Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and all other religions are the same—they’re all about Unconditional Love, about Unity, about the fact that we are a piece of God. We are all masters, creating our world through our emotions and our thoughts, our words and our actions.
This is what is going on in the world today, a very slow process that has changed our potential, from us destroying our planet, to a potential for peace on Earth, which slowly grows stronger and stronger. Humans open up for their universal inner wisdom, gaining the same knowledge all over the globe. There is no church, no doctrine and no rules in this wisdom. It is the same wisdom our ancient ancestors used; it is the same wisdom that today comes from the heart of people all over the world. Slowly this wisdom, which we carry in our DNA, is eradicating belief systems created by fear. And the more we open up to this knowledge, the more we are able to receive universal wisdom.
Historically, take a look at the Northern and Southern hemispheres. The majority of humanity live in the Northern Hemisphere, where there is greater land mass.
There is a very masculine energy emanating from the Northern Hemisphere, where we have a history of violence; of conquering other parts of the world; of war. We have used that masculine energy to take ownership of countries in the Southern Hemisphere, such as Africa.
The Southern Hemisphere has a feminine energy, an energy that joins together instead of splitting apart. Take a look at the difference in how women are treated.
Historically women in Northern Hemisphere were completely dependent on men and there was a very dramatic change when women claimed their right to be the equal of men. Now it is completely normal for women to use their masculine power, but it is still on masculine terms.
In Norway everything is orchestrated to make it easier for women to work after giving birth. Economically, it is almost impossible to manage if a mother chooses to stay home and take care of her children, the effect of which will have negative consequences, both economically and very often socially. If you want to be a part of those who create great careers, you must have other people take care of your children. Or the elderly…
What about Africa? Or Australia? What about South America? Historically, and still to this day, in many places, women are the head of the family. While women do what they can to keep their family together, men sit and rest in the shadow under the Acacia tree. There are very different family values in these two hemispheres, on one hand, values that join together, and on the other hand, values that split apart.
This is about to change, as there is a movement towards a balance between feminine and masculine energy—towards joining together and working out problems instead of claiming to have the only truth and force that truth upon other people.
I actually see you and me as a symbol of this balance, Guy. While you represent the masculine energy in feminine South, I represent the feminine energy in masculine North.
Our mission is to help the Earth to create balance, joining together all aspects of humanity, so we can work on the problems together, instead of fighting each other. We do this by assisting people in reaching their inner potential of wisdom. Because it always comes down to the individual...
The work against balance isn’t new. After Second World War, there were powers that wanted to prevent us from ever experiencing another World War. On October 21st 1945, only a few months after it ended, the United Nations was born. Countries now had a platform where they were joined together with one goal: peace on Earth.
Twelve years later (and here I want to deviate a little to mention numerology, as 12 is a universal number in itself, and it also adds up to 3, which is the number of ignition, action) the European Economic Community was founded, later changed to European Union—an economic platform, where former enemies joined together in order to create a stable economic market.
There are many problems when so many countries and so many voices try to figure out a new way of doing things, but at least they do not go to war against each other anymore. Slowly, more solutions will be created out of those difficulties, as we all learn to take our responsibility in growth.
What about the Middle East? Will there ever be peace there? I am sure there will and I am also sure it will not be that far into the future. We affect each other and the feminine energy of joining instead of splitting apart, is contagious. It would not surprise me at all if we also start to see previous enemies joining together in order to find solutions that work for all concerned. Heaven knows humanity has proved that war doesn’t create any solutions at all—it is about time we do something new!
Can you see how media and the Internet have played such an enormous part in this?
Notice how certain governments deny its citizens access to information from the outside world. Notice what they teach their children at school, about who is to blame for the conditions they endure. The same children that are open to new technology, new thoughts, new solutions, are born into a new energy, as the new human species. Leaders filled with fear will no longer manipulate them! We see them already—every day there are new videos on YouTube of children who do amazing things. We sit in awe, wondering how it is possible… It is about time we see the reality, that there has been a shift without the possibility of returning to barbaric times.
It will become harder and harder before getting better though. The increase in violence against innocent women, children, old and helpless people... It is all based in fear. There are still forces that don’t care if the rest of the world is united, because with their violence and fear they still are able to control. For now… It is only a matter of time.
You see, media and the Internet are just the materialisation of our mental and emotional power within. We affect each other all over the globe, and the more people unite in balance, the more they join together, the more difficult it will be to control through fear, as the Earth’s energy itself stops supporting it.
Next week I want to continue talking about consciousness, Guy. Let us discuss the consciousness of family. What is it that creates that particular dynamic that exists in families, and why is family so important to us, even amongst people we are genetically related to, yet have never met?
