Spiritual Q & A


Question: Do you feel that it’s important, particularly at this point in the paradigm shift, to regularly gather in groups with whom we feel a resonance?
Absolutely. The phenomenon of group strength is well known. At this point in the paradigm shift it requires a great deal of energy to continue moving forward in a spiritual evolutionary process. Even with the waves of consciousness expansion and awakenings, particularly over the past two decades, my experience is that there is still a great deal of contraction, resistance, withholding and downward spiraling on Earth. This is due, in part, to the formidable numbers, both on the planet and inter-dimensionally, whose ambition is to suppress awakening, misrepresent the evolutionary process and nullify transformation.

It is often difficult to overcome restrictions of consciousness ourselves, but working with energies in the group format can provide ways to compensate for the constrictions and densities currently prevalent on Earth. The power of the group can often accelerate leaps in consciousness that might otherwise take months or years to accomplish. Furthermore, bringing our individual consciousness into the group process exponentially multiplies the intent of the group activity.

Group energy also increases awareness, enhances receptivity and provides a sense of belonging – a kind of safe harbor – as well as an incentive to continue the journey. In addition, the support and encouragement garnered in groups enables the participants to take their expanded awareness, enhanced receptivity and clearer vibratory frequency away with them. What we take away affects all those with whom we come into contact. In fact, just our presence in any physical area will have a potentially profound effect on the consciousness of others. As we each do that, we generate a critical mass of awakened and reclaimed truth and freedom, which ripples out into the world mind.

Approximately a year or so ago, the Hopi Elders sent out a message, which was forwarded to me as follows:

“There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel that they are being torn apart and they will suffer greatly.
Know that the river has a destination.
The Elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river and keep our eyes open and our heads above water.

See who is in there with you and celebrate!

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we have been waiting for.”

The Elders verify that the river of evolution, the river of the shift, “is flowing very fast now,” and they ask us “to see who is there with us and to celebrate.” They also reference that “the time of the lone wolf is over.” The time for doing things on our own, as lone wolves, is over. They encourage us to “gather ourselves.” These words validate the phenomenon of group strength and reinforce the tremendous benefit of gathering in groups with whom we feel a resonance.

  1. I suggested to Tim 2-3 years ago, I felt there was a value in the leaders of the spiritual movement coming together to co-create a resonance with each other. I have not see it happen or be encouraged by anyone else.

    What I have witnessed is these so called life coaches, psychics, intuitives, etc, etc, create their own little spiritual niche that they then become the guru of and for their followers!
    This decision to approach the spiritual movement by isolating their Self with those whom come to them for insight, (has from what I have been reading in the many articles posted in the Edge), has kept them in a vibrational energy now lacking advanced insight and understanding.

    It is like they have created a tread mill they are running on and going no where. But because their focus is on the many whom come to them for insight and clarity, it ultimately leaves their insight lacking and boring.

    Another way of saying what I am saying is:
    We as individual energies of this universe, take on the energy of those we tend to spend the most time with.
    Spend a lot of time with individuals with a lower vibration and your energy will begin to vibrate like theirs.
    Spend more time with individuals with a higher vibration and your energy will begin to vibrate with these others at a higher vibration also.
    I definitely see a value in spending a greater portion of our week in a higher vibration, to offset and equalize the lower vibration.

    This has been so clear to me for years now.
    Am I the only one that sees what is happening and taking place?

    Oh Well!!
    I AM
