On whatever day in your life that this blog finds you, I’m sure your news feed will be filled with sad, chilling, terrifying, and awful headlines. It may seem that the guardrails of civilized society are collapsing around us, including love, kindness, compassion, and basic human decency. But instead of feeling “the end is near”, the time has come for us to embrace a new mindset – “the beginning is here.”
We’re at the dawn of a new era of the human experience, and those of us who are awake, aware, enlightened, and open to manifesting meaningful change will flap the butterfly wings that create a gentle breeze right here, building momentum that’s soon generate winds of change worldwide.
We’re not too far away from April of 2033 – that day will mark 2000 years since Christ died for the sins of man. In the two millennia that have followed, the human race has both continued to sin while also making incredible strides forward. And now, a global awakening is underway—a shift that transcends the material realm and invites all of humanity to embrace a new era of consciousness and collaboration. Rooted in the teachings of Christ and infused with the essence of Christ-consciousness, this transformative epoch heralds a time when unity, compassion, and spiritual evolution flow freely through every vessel on Earth to heal the wounds we’ve created and usher in a new era where we fulfill our mission to be shepherds of the planet and messengers of love.
So what does this mean, for you, for me, and for the world we live in?
Refers to an elevated state of awareness where we embody the teachings and energy of Christ, transcending ego-driven desires and aligning ourselves with divine love, compassion, and oneness. Christ’s life serves as a model for us to awaken our higher consciousness and walk the path of unconditional love, selflessness, and spiritual enlightenment. Just as he taught his followers, so too can we show others the joys, benefits, and blessings that manifest when one’s heart and actions align. It’s basic math – if you reach two people, and they reach two more, and those each reach two more… now imagine the impact if you each reach 20 more, or 40, or 100. It’s possible for each of us to truly change the world.
The Essence of Christ’s Teachings:
At the heart of Christ’s teachings lies a message of love and compassion. He emphasized unity with God, self, and others. The new era is an opportunity for humanity to fully embrace these principles, moving beyond religious and political confines to embrace a universal perspective that unites all faiths, beliefs, and identities under the halo of love and wisdom, giving and receiving, speaking and listening, standing on our own and lifting others up.
Unity and Oneness:
In this new era, Christ-consciousness encourages us to recognize our interconnectedness as children of God. We are called to overcome the divisive boundaries that have separated us and embrace the truth that we are all expressions of divine love. This unity extends beyond religious, cultural, and geographic differences, reminding us that we are part of a greater whole. From both a scientific and spiritual point of view, Planet Earth is one organism, and we all play a role for it to flourish in good health.
Healing and Transformation:
As we embody Christ-consciousness, we embark on a journey of inner and outer renewal. This involves healing wounds; acknowledging, and then releasing the traumas we hold onto; and cultivating compassion for ourselves and others. By embracing Christ’s teachings of forgiveness and love, for ourselves and others, we create space for personal and collective healing.
Empowerment through Spirituality:
Embracing Christ-consciousness empowers us to tap into the limitless potential within. By aligning ourselves with divine love, we become conduits of spiritual energy that radiates healing, light, and transformation. This empowerment is not rooted in ego but rather in service and a deep desire to bring about positive change in the world. Yes, we must protect and provide for ourselves first and foremost, that is the first rule of nature, but with that fulfillment comes the bandwidth to connect with and help others. First, our families; then our friends and neighbors; then those throughout our community, country, and those in need around the world.
Living in Harmony with Nature:
Christ-consciousness invites us to recognize our responsibility as stewards of the Earth. It’s a call to honoring the planet as a sacred creation of God. As we awaken to our role as caretakers, we contribute to the restoration of balance and the preservation of the environment for future generations. How do we do this? Little actions yield big results. Don’t litter. Recycle. Embrace renewable energy. Consider green alternatives, like Christmas Trees that get replanted each season. Visit nature but be mindful of your footprint.
Navigating Unprecedented Times:
The world is currently experiencing unprecedented challenges, which many see as part of a divine plan to usher in the new era. These challenges prompt us to reevaluate our priorities, strengthen our faith, and cultivate resilience. In the face of uncertainty, Christ-consciousness provides a guiding light, reminding us of our divine heritage and the power of love to overcome all obstacles.
So how do we move living in Christ-centered consciousness from theory into action?
Daily meditation can take place most anywhere you are, on a mat in your home, sitting on the bus, finding a quiet place in nature, etc. This is a moment to tune into yourself, quieting the chatter of daily life (deadlines, to-do’s, information deluge, etc.) to center your body and soul, find your footing, and attain clarity.
Prayer expands upon meditation, opening your soul to connection with a higher power. Here we focus not just on our own needs, but the needs and well-being of others. Loved ones. People in crisis whether you know of their circumstances or not. Prayer helps thread the spiritual fabric that unites us all, so that universal energy (to many, known as God) can flow to the proper places for the benefit of every living being.
Act In Service –
Every day, we check things off our list to meet our personal obligations to ourselves, our loved ones, employers, and the community. But these actions are primarily self-serving. When you dedicate a portion of your time in service to others, you create tides of change that lift all boats, including yours. This may be as simple as volunteering to clean parks and public spaces, mentoring others, spending time at an elder care facility, or advocating legislators to make meaningful change.
Tune Out AND Tune In –
Every seemingly little decision we make yields transformative changes that continue to resonate long after the moment it occurs. Give as much care and consideration to what you tune out as to what you tune into. News media, social media, and even well-intentioned friends and family may try to use fear to get a desired reaction out of you. Be sure to breathe deep, and remember, unless there’s imminent danger, you don’t need to react to anything in the moment. If something you’re being told doesn’t feel right or doesn’t feel aligned with the teachings of Christ and our role to make the world a more united place, do some research, find credible sources of information, and make a well-informed decision.
By embracing Christ’s example, we become beacons of light, offering hope, healing, and transformation to a world in need. As we stand on the threshold of this transformative epoch, let us answer the call to Christ-consciousness with open hearts and minds. Let us become ambassadors of love, vessels of healing, and advocates for unity. In this new era, may our actions, thoughts, and intentions be guided by the timeless wisdom of Christ, bringing about a more compassionate, enlightened, and harmonious world.
