Spiritual support for a paradigm shift

Earlier this month I suggested ways to help us each make a positive influence on the world around us. These are important, but are fundamentally in opposition to the ways we are governed. If we are to live in a world of ease – where community, equality and peace are natural states of being for us all – then there needs to be a paradigm shift.

This shift needs to occur within us as human beings so that a more loving world can be created from a new resonance, and any corporations or governments that operate from different value systems will find the tide flowing against them. They will have to change to survive.

A key issue I see with humanity currently is our capacity to accept an authoritarian value system over our own. In many ways, this is a survival mechanism, a desire to align with whoever holds the power to avoid being rejected, often described as ‘fawning’ or ‘befriending’. This can lead to a ‘hive mind’ where individuals form and adhere to the group’s central beliefs.

You’ve probably also heard of the controversial Milgram Experiment’ where  people were prepared to electrocute a test subject in another room to the point of extreme suffering just because a lab technician in a white coat told them to do so.

For me, this capacity to give our moral power away is the barrier to a complete consciousness shift. The strength of our fear response means we can be quick to follow anyone who says ‘blame them’ or ‘do this and we will survive’ without listening to that internal voice of love and nuance. I believe human beings are awakening slowly, but what will it take for a paradigm shift where a majority of us say ‘no’ to this duality thinking, right and wrong, them and us, more is better etc?

To find the answer, I believe we must look to the work of pioneers like Rupert Sheldrake and his theories of morphic resonance and the morphogenetic field. He proposes that the way our cells express themselves is only partially determined by genetics, more by an energetic blueprint that sits outside of ourselves.

This is a living, evolving, field that holds memory and instinct, and can explain how a school of fish and a murmuration of starlings can move as one, and how animals naturally learn as a species from an individual discovery.

There are morphic fields for us as individuals, (wounds to which can make us ill) fields for our families (which is why family constellation healing works) for cultures (why we might have a natural affinity with the traditions of our own land) and for our species (which is why generation after generation share similar core values).

The gentle evolution of morphic fields can explain why our children seem to adapt to modern technology so much quicker than we did and also the Flynn effect, where we are scoring higher on IQ tests than our ancestors did 100 years ago. 

The issue for me is that although these energy fields are changing by the growth of each one of us as individuals, it is relatively slow, and some of the imprints of fear and blame are so embedded that they may be getting stronger rather than weaker. Something dramatic is needed if humanity is going to evolve quickly enough to meet lovingly all the existential threats that face us.

At this point, I would like to share how this newsletter inspiration came to me. In the past, I have been given nudges to ‘tune in’ through electronic equipment behaving unusually, so when my alarm clock started playing the radio at a random time in the night, there was a clue then that something wanted my attention.

Unfortunately, I simply turned it off and forget about it. 2 days later, a smoke alarm went off in the middle of the night for no reason. I changed the battery. A few days later, another smoke alarm went off in the early hours of the morning. I was out of batteries so I simply took the battery out and left it. I still wasn’t ‘listening’. Finally, as the message clearly wasn’t getting through to me, our car alarm went off at 1am. We all woke with a start but there was no obvious reason for it. I finally understood that someone or something wanted my attention.

I immediately tuned in and journeyed shamanically to the underworld. I was shown fields of energy around the planet, in an array of vibrant colours and geometrical designs. Amongst these established structures, I could see the skeleton, for want of a better word, of a new energy field that was anchored across the world through pillars that seemed to emerge from existing sacred sites.

This grid is not yet on line, just pulsing occasionally, but showed to be fundamentally complete and my sense is that it will herald the paradigm shift we need, a revolution in humanity’s consciousness rather than an evolution. It represents the opportunity for a rebirth into a golden age, the fulfilment of the prophecies of many indigenous peoples, for example, the ‘pachacutti’ to the Peruvian shaman or the ‘Powateoni’ to the Hopi elders.

What will spark this grid into life? In my journey, I was shown a flare from our sun, an energy spark powerful enough to light up the new consciousness field and alter our collective instincts in a moment. This would create a tipping point for our species where we might finally unite in shared global values of peace and equality.

I am curious as to whether such a solar flare would impact on our technology – might a rise in consciousness coincide with a reduction in our reliance on technology and the internet? We will see. I have looked up current solar activity on the internet and found that Solar cycle 25 is more powerful than expected and could peak any time now, not 2025 as originally predicted. Could this be relevant? Or could change come from higher than usual solar winds?

This is just what I saw in my journey and with my dowsing. It may be metaphorical, it may not resonate with you, but it gives me hope that the difficulties we have living together in harmony as a species may be about to get easier.

I pray that this vision is accurate and that I live to see it manifest.

With love


How can I make a difference?

Last month, I touched upon how spirituality requires action as well as good intentions. I want to dive deeper into this concept because this is a key question of our times. What can we do to help the world become a more loving place?

I will summarise the answers I received to this question through my shamanic journeying and dowsing. My perspective only has value if it resonates with you, so please take what you want from these words and no more.

There are 3 layers of personal action that showed to me, so 3 areas in which we can play our part for global change. I expect you can add many more examples, this is just my list to trigger deeper reflection:

1. Thoughtful personal living

– Gratitude for all we appreciate in our lives

– Practicing moderation

– A light impact on the planet, so a gentle use of the resources we have – emotional and spiritual as well as material.

– A light travel footprint

– Local food sourcing

– Knowing the ethical footprint of all purchases

– Prioritising personal self-care

– Deep connection with nature

– Working towards living in alignment with your value systems

– Kindness of words

2. Community presence

– Being a good neighbour, so reaching out beyond your nuclear family to the wider community

– Moving towards a way of living that celebrates and includes all children, not just your own. This requires a communal rather than competitive attitude to parenting, creating the ‘village’ needed to raise our children.

– Work that serves your community, considering how we can all collaborate in food growing, land sharing, child caring, play and personal development.

– Honouring your family lineage and culture and that of others. Living in a way that sees how different cultures can work together and share strengths to support the world in unity.

– Sharing your wisdom and experience, recognising the skills you have and making them available to others, whether practical, creative, spiritual or system changing.

3. Global influence

– Protest and non-compliance where necessary

– Charitable donations when possible

– Petitions

– Writing to corporations, politicians and other leaders where they do not fully represent your needs or values

– Prayer and vision holding, ensuring that the outcomes you energise are held loosely, thereby avoiding the risk of condensing what we cannot fully know or understand into a finite idea of what is good or bad, right or wrong.

The goal in these actions is to create a platform of energy that holds a space for the world we might wish to live in, which I would suggest for most of us is not the world as it currently exists.

When I journeyed shamanically, I was shown a fast flowing river, with the water representing the almost irresistible power of the current narratives of fear, greed, dogma, inequality and despair. People were rafting down the river, and in going with the current seeming to have a relatively managable experience. Others were resisting being swept down and were holding on to tree branches projecting from the bank.

I was shown that those trying to live with love and respect can only hold themselves on the edge of the torrent right now because it is hard to escape its power completely. This transitional place is a good opportunity to look for coalitions that celebrate our differences as strengths, not sources of fear.

Taking the imagery as a whole, it begs the question – what will it take for the majority of us to escape the powerful torrent of mainstream dynamics that tries to keep us trapped?

For me, the way out can only come when the torrent itself is stopped, so we can all climb out of that particular river and forge a new path of our own making. This means paradigm change, a shift beyond what our own loving compassion can achieve on its own. It needs a higher plan.

I have something exciting to share on this, but enough for now. I am going to break with normal traditions and send two newsletters this month, the final one in 2 weeks so we can finish the year on a note of optimism and potential. Please do watch your inbox.

With love
