Pineal Gland – Third Eye – The Fascinating Nature of Your Inner Vision

 

 

To this day, scientists from around the globe, specialized in studying the anatomy of the human body, have made dwarfish success in demystifying the secrets of the pineal gland, not to mention the denyal of the process of calcification, which everyone should be informed about.

What we know for a fact is that the pineal gland is the size of a raisin and that it’s located right between our eyebrows, directly in the middle of our cranium.

For many scientists, the pineal gland is the master gland of all endocrine glands located in the human body.

Interestingly, when you look at the pineal gland, you can’t help but notice how strikingly similar its form is to a pinecone.

When the great French philosopher Rene Descartes was posed by the existing relationship between consciousness and body, after a thorough study, he concluded that the pineal gland is the so-called “seat of the soul”.

Descartes believed that this tiny, pinecone-shaped organ provided the opportunity for consciousness to influence the body as a living structure.

For Descartes, this organ was the source of power that transforms a living organism into a conscious being, able to think for itself.

Pineal Gland – Third Eye : An Atrophied Eye

Since the dawn of time, man uses the concept of the eye as a symbol of consciousness, of internal awareness.

We assume that the pineal gland could be a real eye because of its remarkably similar structure to the human eyeballs.

We’re inclined to think that it’s an eye that retired into the brain. And that the brain has closed around it and the skull has closed over it.

There is a supposition that if this was prehistoric eye belonging to some actually ancient and remote period, and having no further use for man, because his other eyes are excellent and efficient, that this gland will atrophy.

However, that is not the case. And this gland still remains in some unexplainable for us way perfectly healthy down through ages.

This is confirmed by an interesting experiment conducted last century, multiple times, with fish left for in a cave where there is some kind of a lake, and after a few generations, these fish are all blind because of the lack of a source of light.

However, this eye in the brain doesn’t seem to deteriorate.

What is The Purpose of The Pineal Gland?

It’s possible that the function the pineal gland carries is to provide us with insight. Or to see something not otherwise visible, to see inward rather than outward things.

Alan Watts gives an excellent primer to support this claim:

“When a man listens to what you say and he says: “I see what you mean.” He isn’t looking at anything, it’s insight he is trying to tell you. That he has become aware.”

Another widely popular belief in our community today is that this gland is the secret of our sleep dream phenomena. And that it’s this gland that makes the dream remembered or forgotten when we awaken.

In the human brain, we can find a small body called the pituitary body or pituitary gland. One of the simplest things we can liken it to is the thoughts of an old alchemist:

“It looks very much like a bottle. It has an anterior and posterior pot and secretes a material which is called petaitrant.”

What Are The Gifts of The Third Eye?

In India, a tradition exists to place an extra eye on the forehead to indicate a power of superior sight.

The third eye corresponds to the sixth chakra (Ajna chakra) in the human body.

They teach us that we have no more than 5 senses. A pair of physical eyes and ears and that’s it. But the third eye has more to say about that.

The third eye gives you an expanded consciousness or altered perception of reality. Meaning you can see things that you wouldn’t necessarily see, hear things you wouldn’t possibly hear. It enables you to grasp the fact that there is more beyond the material world.

The third eye isn’t a real eye that appears on your forehead. It’s a metaphor of discerning truth from lies. And accessing the third eye provides you an opportunity to see the world beyond your line of sight.

This means that you acquire the ability to see fascinating things – auras, spirits of people, animals, and trees. You start to pick up information (visual, auditory, sensory) unattainable when you limit your mind to the boundaries of the physical realm.

The third eye can awaken man’s vestigial intuitive gifts such as clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, clairsentience and much more. It all depends on the stage of spiritual development of a person.

Keep Your Connection With Your Pineal Gland – Third Eye Alive

When babies come into this world (like nowadays highly gifted indigo, crystal and rainbow children) they are exceptionally psychic and sensitive at first, conserving a strong bond with the spiritual realm.

But as time goes by, many shut down these abilities, losing the rewarding connection with the spiritual world. The main reason for this is particularly because of improper school education or of a trauma in their childhood years.

In conclusion, the third eye and the pineal gland are essentially one and the same thing, when referring to awakening forgotten psychic abilities, seeing into the spirit dimension or experiencing higher levels of consciousness.

The 5 Soul Groups You Belong To

 

Do you ever feel like you just don’t belong? Well, think again.

Your soul is energy and this same energy is what creates everyone and everything in this Universe. When broken down to purely an energetic state, we are all connected and we are all one.

We are all here because we have a purpose to be here and a reason and motivation for existing. Many wise sages over the years have said that Earth is simply a playground where we come to learn things and experience life in the material form.

On Earth we can indulge in physical and material pleasures, and learn what it means to feel love, hate and everything in between.

On a soul level, we are all here to walk this journey, and even though everyone’s path is slightly different, we all come here with a group of souls that are energetically in harmony with us. These Soul Groups are connected to us in higher realms and also during our time on Earth.

People from our designated Soul Groups are those that we have a soul contract with, and are supposed to be part of our learning journey on this earth. Sometimes we also agree to team up with these souls in order to create and bring new innovation to earth.

We all belong to certain soul groups, and these soul groups all serve a different purpose in our lives.

The 5 Different Soul Groups You Belong To

Soul Group #1: Source

Firstly, it is important to understand that we are all Source energy. In a sense, everything in this Universe is part of Source energy, which makes all of us connected.

Although we are connected to everything in the Universe, all of our soul’s chose Earth as the perfect place to materialize. And so together, we are all responsible for life on planet earth.

Every action and every thought creates a ripple in the cosmos that effects everyone. When we do harm to ourselves or to others, this energy goes out there and shapes the world that we live in.

Just the same, when we do something loving for ourselves or others, that energy also shapes the world that we live in.

Soul Group #2: Soul Community

Your Soul Community is a group of souls that share similar lessons and themes in life.

Every member of your Soul Community would have come to Earth with the intention of learning how to grow in a particular area and how to bring new creative ideas or inspirations to a particular field.

Members of your Soul Community are often relatives, friends, coworkers, employees, and people who really inspire you or have the same mission as you.

Your Soul Community can also include significant encounters like a stranger that helps you when you are having a bad day, or even a particular school teacher that left a lasting impression on you growing up.

Basically, your Soul Community is people who touch your life in a significant way but perhaps are not permanent features of your life. They can also be people that share the same philosophy as you.

Your Soul Community could be hundreds, even thousands of people depending on the path you have chosen.

Soul Group #3: Soul Family

This is the immediate family members that you have chosen to incarnate with in this life, however this group can also include people that have taken on the role of being like family to you.

Members of your Soul Family often have a close bond and are also here to learn similar lessons and themes as you.

It is important to note here that regardless of the relationship with your immediate family, your soul chose to reincarnate with them for a particular lesson or experience.

Before your soul came down to Earth it made agreements with every member of your immediate family to be connected genetically and to experience a similar set of life circumstances.

In higher realms, all of your souls teamed up and understood that by coming into a certain gene pool you were all going to have to explore certain themes, patterns, and energies together.

Soul Group #4: Soulmates

Out of all the Soul Groups, this one is often the most significant and when we meet people from this group, we often have a spiritual awakening or feel a deeper spiritual connection.

Your Soulmate Group is around 3-9 people and these souls play a very significant part of your life.

Your Soulmate Group can include family members, friends and of course, lovers. All of these soulmates will leave a lasting impression on your life and will often have a hand in changing your life.

Soulmates touch your life on the deepest of levels. These are the people that you have the strongest connections with, they can also be the people that challenge and push you the most.

When you meet a soulmate for the first time, there is often a familiar bond and perhaps you feel connected in more lives than just this one.

Everyone has a group of soulmates that they come to Earth with, but not all soulmates are destined to meet or be together. Every soulmate journey is different, but if a member of your Soulmate Group is present in your life, you will definitely know.

In higher realms, your Soulmate Group is also one that you train and study with. In fact, you all work together to help each other to learn lessons and experience growth.

When you shift out of human form, your soul will connect with your Soulmate Group in higher realms and all of you will work together and help each other to understand the lives that you lead on Earth.

In higher realms, your Soulmate Group is like your support group. You all share a special bond as you are each other’s biggest supporters.

Soul Group #5: Twin Flame

When our soul comes to earth not all of our energy enters into our body. The rest of our energy can remain in higher realms or it can be transferred into another body.

When you have two bodies with the same soul energy, it is referred to as Twin Flame. While everyone has soul energy left in higher realms that they are connected to, having a Twin Flame on Earth can be pretty rare.

Reincarnating into two different bodies is often a lot of hard work for a soul, which is why it is often only seen in advanced souls that are looking to come to Earth for rapid learning.

It is possible to have more than one “twin” flame, however humanity has perhaps not reached that level of consciousness just yet.

Twin Flames often find each other during their time on Earth, but the purpose of their connection is not just romantic as commonly believed.

When Twin Flames come together it is often for a higher cause and to impart knowledge and wisdom to Earth.

Twin Flame connections can be extremely intense but underneath all of that intensity, there may also be a feeling that you are both coming together for a higher cause.

Unique Ancient Map Depicting The Earth As Seen From Space Restored Digitally

 

 

AncientPages.com – In 1587, Urbano Monte (1544-1613) a little-known cartographer created an amazing, hand-drawn, 10 feet by 10 feet map.

Not only does the map depict the Earth as seen from space, when directly looking down at the North Pole, but it’s also filled with incredible images of foreign locations and astonishing mythological creatures such as for example Siberian unicorns, ship-attacking mermen and terrifying giant birds.

Amazing mythological creatures have always fascinated people and now we have a chance to view them through the eyes of our ancestors.

This unique world atlas has now been restored and digitally stitched together. Cartographer Monte who was very interested in geography was from a wealthy family in Milan, Italy.

In 1585, he met with a Japanese delegation and scientists think the map he created is the result of his meeting and stories he heard about Japan. The world atlas contains numerous names within Japan, which don’t appear on other Western maps created at the time.

Mercator’s great contribution to cartography is that he changed its nature with the help of his artistic enhancements and forever altered ocean navigation with his projection method, which was the most influential invention of early cartography.

Monte on the other hand wanted to show the circular nature of the Earth. According to Rumsey, Monte’s work is much more than just a map. “It’s a whole scientific instrument.

5 Traps Used to Shut Down and Limit Human Consciousness

 

The human condition at present is one of slavery, a new kind of slavery, where bondage is psychological and spiritual rather than physical.

Human consciousness is the target in a broad war of control where people willingly acquiesce to social conditions which clearly fail to serve their best interests, even doing them harm.

We accept the status quo of warfare, fear, environmental destruction, greed, corruption, poisoned health and false scarcity because we’ve been herded into traps which hold us hostage with false beliefs and the appearance of comfort.

In reality, though, breaking through these traps would allow us to apply the principles of peace, sustainability, exploration, acceptance and progress to improving the human condition.

Firstly, though, we have to see and acknowledge the boundaries of the prison we are in.

“There’s five essential boxes for human consciousness, there’s five things that shut human consciousness down. Five models that attempt to keep people rigidly inside of their walls. And if you’re inside these boxes, you’re not going to expand your awareness to understand the actual truth of what’s going on in our world.” ~ Mark Passio

1. Politics

“If anybody identifies with left or right, conservative Republican, liberal Democrat, etc…” ~ Mark Passio

The self-identification with a particular political party is one of the most divisive states of consciousness there is in our world today.

This is clearly evident in the quality and character of public discourse and how it merges with financial interests to create stress, pressure and conflict at every level of society.

2. Religion

The major cultural religions of the world are perhaps the greatest trap for human consciousness ever devised and put to use as a means of controlling people. This has been corrupting the world and killing people for thousands of years.

The acceptance of the possibility of a better existence after death is an excuse to ignore the quality of life one is living in this existence, and is used as an excuse to participate in wickedness.

We of course see how this paradigm is being used against us today to create a major riff among the people of the earth as global leaders push for a new religious war pitting Islam against Christianity. No one can win if this battle is allowed to escalate.

3. Scientism

“Not what I call real science, but what I call ultra rigid skepticism in the form of quote/unquote science, that’s peddled for modern science in today’s world.” ~ Mark Passio

Science has become a religion of sorts, where ideas are vetted in a strange process of study mixed with peer review, mixed with corporate and monetary influence, mixed with egos.

In this paradigm, there is no room for ideas which challenge long-held assumptions and theories about the world, stifling human progress.

Rebel researchers like Graham Hancock and Rupert Sheldrake, are examples of how interesting ideas about where the human is coming from and where it is headed are shut down by the rigid thinking of a scientific world which pushes wholesale skepticism as affable quality.

“Science places itself on a pedestal and assures everyone it has dispassionately arrived at its conclusions. Meanwhile, however, it is full of assumptions, denials and limitations, and makes the serious mistake of presenting its theories as facts. The errors of mainstream science are gladly seized upon by technocrats, eager to use science and technology to further their own ambitions of control…” ~ Makia Freeman

4. The New Age Movement

Another box for human consciousness which is relatively new in our world is the New Age Movement, which abandons genuine science in favor of feel good platitudes which keep people sidelined from taking action and fully participating in our world. It is a unique, open source belief system which

It’s tenets are described by the following 10 bullets here:

1. Ignore the “Negative”

2. Never Get Angry

3. It’s All One, So it’s All Good

4. You Can Never Really Know

5. Accept Injustice, Never Resist

6. A Watered-Down Law of Attraction

7. Turning the Other Cheek (it evens out the scars!)

8. Chaos Should Be Feared

9. We Must Feel Good all the Time

10. Truth Doesn’t Need to be Defended

Mark Passio

5. The Monetary System – The General Belief in Money

This is the greatest trap of all, enslaving nearly everyone on our planet. At the root of this deception is the general belief in money, that is, in the belief that money has more value than life itself and is therefore more precious than anything life has to offer.

Because of this, countless schemes, scams, fiat systems, debt-enslavement programs, frauds, and thefts are able to syphon the energy and time of human beings, leading us nowhere but to our own ruin.

The monetary system we have today operates in this way, with a tiny ruling elite having devised and now controlling an international system of manipulation which gives unlimited power to those who create money without having to produce anything of actual value.

Final Thoughts

It is impossible to understand the conflict, chaos and division in our world without understanding the ways in which human consciousness is limited, corralled and enslaved by these paradigms. At this point in the age of communication, however, it takes a certain willfulness to continue to operate within these five boxes.

“It’s much easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled — such is the nature of confirmation bias and other psychological tools of manipulation. Breaking free of the ancient, historical ‘constant’ of mind control is an ongoing process of waking up out of a state of denial. Spiritual emergence and awakening involves a physiological break from the consensus social agreements of our planetary cultures.” ~ Karlos Kukuburra

4 Warning Signs from Your Intuition

 

 

If you are open and if you are listening, your intuition is always sending  signs and clues so you can move forward in the right direction.

by Tanaaz, guest writer

The right direction is really the direction that is aligned with your soul. It is not a question of good or bad, it is just whatever direction your soul needs to go in.

When you still your mind and listen to that quieter voice within, you will always be guided and you will always know the right next move to make.

Learning to listen to this quiet voice within does take time and practice. But the more you learn how to still the chatter in your head, and the more you trust that you are indeed being guided, the easier it will become.

In fact, there really is no greater or more powerful tool than your intuition. We all have one, we just need to get comfortable in learning how to use it.

While there are exercises you can do to strengthen your intuition, sometimes the hardest part is determining the difference between your intuitive voice and the voice of your ego.

Most of us have a very strong and powerful mind that is constantly chatting and offering its opinion, and sometimes this can get in the way of being able to accurately determine our intuition.

To help you with the process, here are 4 common warning signs that usually arise when your intuition is getting overthrown by your ego.

If you ever find yourself experiencing these warning signs, the message is always — Stop and Listen.

Here are the 4 warning signs you need to watch out for:

1. Indecision

Sometimes it can be hard to decide whether to go left or right, choose pizza or pasta, or to hold on or let go. Making decisions, big or small is definitely something your intuition can help you with.

If you find yourself going around in circles about whether or not to do something, or if you are struggling to make a decision, you need to trust that this is your intuition talking to you.

As I always say to myself — when you are met with indecision you must listen to your intuition!

Often when you are struggling to decide something, or when you feel a resistance to making a decision, it could be a warning sign from your intuition that either you have not yet got all the facts, or that something is off about one of your choices.

When you are indecisive, the best thing to do is pause and wait it out. You can also ask for a sign or meditate quietly to help you see things clearly.

If you can’t wait it out, follow which option feels the best, not which one sounds the best. Our intuition doesn’t always play by the rules of logic, so sometimes you just have to learn to trust your feelings.

2. Seeking Approval

While it is fine to ask someone for their opinion or even for their advice, if you find yourself reaching out to everyone you know this could also be a red flag.

When you find yourself asking for everyone’s opinion, more often than not you are most likely looking for validation, or you are ignoring what you already know to be true deep down inside.

When your intuition sends you a message that is hard to hear, sometimes it can be tempting to keep seeking advice and opinions from others in order to shake off or validate what we already know to be true.

If you find yourself seeking the opinion and approval from everyone around you, stop and check in with yourself. Connect with your inner voice and don’t be afraid to hear the truth.

Remember, this is your life and only you know what is best.

3. Feeling Drained or Zapped

Feeling drained or depleted is another warning sign from your intuition. This usually happens when you are surrounding yourself with the wrong people, but it can also happen when you enter a room or walk down a particular street.

If you ever find yourself feeling zapped, especially if this feeling comes on suddenly, it is definitely a sign that you need to check in and ask your intuition for guidance.

The tricky thing with this situation is that it can hard to hear your intuition when you are feeling zapped, so call on your angels and visualize a protective white light all around you.

Once you have removed yourself from the space or stopped hanging around the person, usually your energy levels will recharge quickly.

4. Something’s Just Off

The most common warning sign from your intuition is a general feeling of “offness”. When you feel off about something or if you feel something is not right, this could definitely be your intuition shining through and trying to warn you.

If you feel off about something, breathe deeply and ask your intuition to show you the next best step.

Sometimes stress or anxiety can also get in the way here and make us believe that things are worse than they seem, but if your feelings of “offness” are also met with any other warning signs like indecision or feeling zapped definitely pay attention.

You may need to take a few deep breaths or meditate here to help clear your mind and check in with yourself about what could be going on.

Hopefully these 4 warning signs help you to understand how your intuition is always guiding and protecting you.

Nothing to Fear — Shifting From Fear to Love

 

Fear is running rampant on our world and it is blinding many to the inner guiding voice of their soul, and keeping us from creating a better world. We can all transcend our fears by embracing a few higher truths and increasing our awareness of a few important points.

A World of Fear

Our world is dominated by fear.  Fear of terrorism, fear of getting old, fear of death, fear of cancer, fear of whatever — you name it.

The mainstream media bombards us with bad news.  Commercial interests play on our many insecurities and fears to sell product.

Our fears are reflected in the wars we wage. The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on you name it.  Our fears are reflected in the themes and archetypes in our fiction — zombie apocalypse, alien invasion, end-of-the-world, good vs. evil, etc.

Our fears are reflected subtly and not so subtly in all aspects of our lives and the world we create.

On a personal level, many of us allow the painful or challenging experiences of our past to dominate our thinking and responses in the present. We live in fear of re-experiencing past traumas and become guarded, defensive, and reactive rather than staying open and present.

Perhaps our deepest fears are of not having enough, or not being enough. Of not being able to provide physically for ourselves and not being good enough, worthy enough, deserving enough.

Fears that were born from the illusion of limitation our reality encourages. We have become lost in this realm of separation and duality and have come to believe deeply in limitation and separation as absolutes of existence.

We have lost touch with our higher self who knows no limitation and no separation from the one and the all.

Blinded by Fear

Fear isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Fear is an aspect of the ego, and a certain amount of it is required to protect and safeguard us as physical beings.

But fear has become exaggerated within us well beyond the instinct for protection; becoming a way of life, a constant experience and an inner guiding voice.

Fear was meant to encourage us to be conscious and aware, to be observant of any dangers around us and yet fear now encourages many to be unconscious and unaware of the inner guiding voice of their soul and higher self — their divine presence.

Manipulated by Fear

There are those on our world who are using fear as a tool to divide us, to disconnect us from our inner truth and divine presence, and to disempower us.

These people have realized that fear is a powerful tool they can use to control others, achieve their self-serving agendas, and give themselves a false sense of power and self-importance.

While they can create circumstances and situations that are calculated to create fearful experiences in many, you can choose to be conscious and aware of your own emotions and reactions and not have fear activated within you.

Fear Disempowers

Fear is a powerful emotion that distracts us from focusing on what’s important. It keeps us focusing on exactly what we don’t want instead of focusing on what we do want.

Our fears interfere with our ability to create the best possible outcomes for our lives and the world. Our fears keep us caged within a limited set of possibilities.

As we awaken to the truth of our higher-self, and the wider reality, we realize that our thoughts are creative and that what we focus on we attract. The creative power of thought is largely determined by its duration, consistency, and emotive intensity.

Fear is a very strong emotion, and letting it run amok in your head will make you a powerful manifestor of what you DON’T WANT. This is why people who have mastered their minds never dwell on their fears.

And, this is why those that seek to empower themselves through controlling others always try to encourage our fears.

Transcending Our Fears

A great shift in the consciousness of humanity is occurring and many of us are beginning to transcend our fears; shifting from the fear-centric responses of the mind and ego to the compassion centric responses of the heart; shifting from fear and judgement to forgiveness and love.

Yet many are still caught up in their personal dramas as well as the collective earthly drama. Wars and terrorism everywhere, famine and poverty, disasters of all kinds… There seems to be a lot to be worried about.

There Is Nothing to Fear

As one awakens to the wider reality and their higher self, one becomes less and less attached to all the drama of the world. One begins to see it for what it is, a grand illusion; a game that we are intentionally playing.

Fully embracing a few truths about the wider reality can give you a profoundly different perspective on life’s difficulties and liberate you from the tyranny of your fears.
The real you lives forever.

Existence does not end when your body dies because the real you is not your body.  The real you is an eternal non-physical being (your soul) — a thread of universal/ source consciousness (God).

The real you is connected to your physical body as a vehicle for physical experience. When your body dies your consciousness continues FOREVER.

“In the last few moments before physical death, and as you die, you then experience yourself as consciousness free of form. Suddenly, there is no more fear, just peace and a knowing that ‘all is well’ and that death is only a form dissolving. Death is then recognized as ultimately illusory — as illusory as the form you had identified with as yourself.” — Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks

The real you has no physical needs.

Your soul is a non-physical being — pure energy, pure awareness. It does not need food, it does not need shelter, and it does not need a job or money. Its existence does not depend on any of these things.

The real you cannot be harmed.

You are a thread of universal consciousness and consciousness cannot be harmed by anything. Your body can be harmed, but the consciousness that drives your body cannot be harmed. No matter what happens, the real you is completely unharmed.

While every experience leaves an impression on your awareness and your soul, nothing can ever permanently harm your soul, your true nature as a non-physical being, as pure awareness.

The real you is loved completely and unconditionally.

Your soul exists in higher planes of existence that are filled with love and bliss. Love and support are given and received unconditionally. The real you is loved ALWAYS.

The real you chose to incarnate in the Earth game.

Your soul chose to participate in the Earth game and the school of life. You scripted your life and its major themes. You knew it would be challenging, but you were excited to play because you knew that formative growth only comes from real challenges.

You were not concerned with the apparent danger of some of the challenges because you understood that it is just a game and the real you can never be harmed.

Shifting from Fear into Love

 Imagine if your response to everything in your reality and your world, whether it is a major disaster or a painful experience, was compassion for yourself and EVERYONE involved.

 Imagine if every experience in your past, which has encouraged you to respond in fear, was altered and erased, instead replaced by a response of compassion. What would that be like? What perspective would you have about the world and would fear even exist or be acknowledged by you?

With a history of compassionate responses, how would you react to or feel about areas of your current reality that are causing reactions of fear?

Maybe current situations would not even have been manifested by you.  Remember that resistance, frustration, anxiety, stress and concern are also aspects of fear.

There are many horrific circumstances where it might seem appropriate to react with fear, anger, and indignation. But imagine how healing it would be to react with compassion instead. It would allow the love and the light of the divine source to flow through you; it would open you to divine guidance and intervention.

Exercising compassion allows every situation to be illuminated with light, love, and peace for yourself and all of humanity. Imagine if every person chose to react with compassion — fear would disappear and kindness would blossom in its place.

From kindness love is born, the unconditional love of the divine source that can be widely and freely shared because its supply is unlimited. When the love of the divine source is present anything and everything is possible and able to manifest with ease and perfection.

Shifting your reaction from fear to compassion simply requires you to realize and be observant of a few points:

Your fear is illusory.

The lesser you, here on Earth — your egoic self — may be allowing fear to dominate its thoughts and manifest them into your reality, but the truth is that your soul and higher self know no fear. When you fully embrace this truth, it becomes much easier to let go of your fears.

By choosing to let go of any fears that arise in you, they can be released and erased. This can take some persistence because fears can be tenacious, but with constant focus on letting your fears go you will begin to feel a freedom birth within you, and as you taste this, it will become easier and easier to release your fears.

Through the desire to transcend your fears you are encouraging yourself to observe your fears free from judgement and attachment. Observing and being consciously aware of your fears is the most powerful tool to releasing the habit of fear because only through awareness is change possible.

With detachment from fear, you will be able to think and sense with greater clarity, and manifest with greater power.

Forgiveness

When you are aware that you have reacted and responded with fear be forgiving to yourself, know that fear is a conditioned habit; it will take time and dedication to shift this conditioning.

With awareness you can overcome your automatic fear reactions. Responding with forgiveness whenever you feel a fear reaction starting acts as an opening that allows you to express the higher energies, thought processes, and emotions of compassion.

With forgiveness, you encourage your detachment from fear and consciously choose to manifest a loving reality for yourself no matter what occurs and what challenges you face. Practice forgiveness regularly and you will notice a beautiful habit of forgiveness forming.

Compassion

There are many circumstances occurring on our world right now that are causing terror, pain, and suffering for those involved as well as those who are witnessing.

Many of these situations are manifesting because of the strong egos and lack of compassion of the individuals involved, and their inability to sense the love and guidance of their higher self (the divine presence). This causes them to inflict pain upon others.

When we view these horrific circumstances with a wider perspective, we recognize that these circumstances are acting as catalysts for positive shifts in many people. As pain and suffering are witnessed by those around the world, compassion is activated within many people.

This activation of compassion opens the individual to the flow of healing energy from their soul and the universe, raising the energetic frequency of our world and all of humanity. This heightened energy is then triggering many more to awaken to the truth of the wider reality and their higher selves.

The more you respond regularly to situations with forgiveness and compassion, the more you will deeply feel the peaceful energy that it produces within you, and in others, and the more you’ll want to share your compassion with yourself and others, birthing a beautiful new pattern within your thoughts, emotions, and the reality you manifest.

If you would like to help energize and manifest a world filled with compassion, please consider repeating the affirmation below regularly.

“With the support of Mother Earth and the Creator I now emanate from my soul sacred waves of light carrying compassion to empower the compassion of the Creator within every person upon the Earth. The Earth is a space of compassion and love eternally; this is our collective experience.”

Your heart is inviting you to be loving in every moment; it is through compassion and your conscious awareness of fear that you can encourage others to experience the profound love of the Creator, and contribute to the manifestation of a new reality — a reality characterized by cooperation, harmony, peace, and prosperity FOR ALL.

BREAKING: Remains of Buddha Found? 2,500-Year-Old Cremated Bones with Revealing Inscription Unearthed in China

Remains-of-Buddha-Found

 

In what could be an enormously significant finding for Buddhists around the world, archaeologists in China have unearthed an ancient ceramic box containing cremated human remains, which carries an inscription saying they belong to Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama.

Siddhartha Gautama, also known as the Buddha or “Enlightened One,” is probably one of the most influential individuals to come out of India through the founding of Buddhism.  He is believed to have lived and taught mostly in the eastern part of ancient India sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BC.  According to the Mahaparinibbana Sutta of the Pali canon, at the age of 80, the Buddha announced that he would soon reach Parinirvana, or the final deathless state, and abandon his earthly body.

After his death, Buddha’s cremation relics are said to have been divided amongst 8 royal families and his disciples. Legends say that, centuries later, they were enshrined by King Ashoka into 84,000 stupas.  Many of the remains were supposedly taken to other countries.

Gathering of the Buddha

Around 1,000 years ago, two monks named Yunjiang and Zhiming, spent two decades gathering together the remains of the Buddha, which had been distributed around India and other countries.

Live Science reports that the newly-discovered box, which was unearthed in Jingchuan County, China, came with an inscription dated to June 22, 1013. It states

 

The monks Yunjiang and Zhiming of the Lotus School, who belonged to the Mañjuśrī Temple of the Longxing Monastery in Jingzhou Prefecture, gathered more than 2,000 pieces of śarīra [cremated remains of the Buddha], as well as the Buddha’s teeth and bones, and buried them in the Mañjuśrī Hall of this temple.
In order to promote Buddhism, they wanted to collect śarīra [Buddhist relics]. To reach this goal, both of them practiced the instruction of Buddhism during every moment of their lives for more than 20 years. Sometimes they received the śarīra from others’ donations; sometimes they found them by chance; sometimes they bought them from other places; and sometimes others gave them the śarīra to demonstrate their wholeheartedness.”

According to Live Science, archaeologists identified cremated human remains inside the ancient ceramic box, and while it is impossible to say with certainty whether they are indeed the remains of Siddhārtha Gautama, the 1,000-year-old inscription certainly suggests this is the case.

 

The discovery was first made back in December 2012 while a group of villagers were repairing roads. After years of archaeological excavations at the site, the historically significant finding was reported in Chinese in 2016. Now, the discovery has reached the English-speaking world for the first time in the journal Chinese Cultural Relics.
