“The earth itself is already in a fifth dimensional alignment it’s just the tipping point has not occurred where a certain amount of beings are anchoring fifth dimension to make the external reality as fifth dimensional as our internal experience is. And that’s what we are doing is creating a tipping point. And up until this tipping point we seem to live in a play where we seem to be living out the infinite possibilities of ‘free will’, what that really means is, the dark has just as much freedom as the light. But when we have the tipping point and fifth dimension is anchored as a collective energy, dark won’t be able to do what it’s done because it won’t be able to do the things that are out of alignment with divine will (fifth dimensional consciousness). So do you know what we’re living out right now? This is the last stand darkness has, this is it’s last shot.” ~ Matt Kahn
One of the major criticisms against the ‘new age’ movement is their seemingly denial of darkness, evil, and immorality. Many of the naysayers against the spiritual movement suggest that non-duality is a cop out against the reality of what is going on the world.
“Do you think you can just pretend like murderers, wars and crimes don’t exist and love everything and that’s going to have any effect on changing the world?”, they ask. While the spiritual folks know that in a reality where everything is energy, the only energy that can transform and heal darkness is love.
So it’s not necessarily they are denying that there are people suffering and crimes being committed in the world, but rather they are using the light within them to “fight” it, rather than tactics motivated by more darkness.
They do this by going inward and raising their own vibration, healing their own emotional blockages, and unraveling their own fear based belief systems so that they can quite literally be the change they wish.
So where is the happy medium? How can one feel as though they are taking action in the world, doing something about the travesties that go on but still not allow themselves to be sunk to a level where they are trying to fight hate and darkness with more hate and darkness?
Below are the appropriate action steps that will marry responding to the tragedies in the world with also being rooted in love.
Step One: Look Within, Heal Yourself First
Before I start this part of the article I first want to preface it with this: Your safety and the safety of another person should always come first. If you are in a present moment situation where you are being attacked, abused, or someone else is, then this is NOT the time to go within and heal yourself.
Appropriate action means when we are confronted with real life danger we take whatever means we feel is appropriate to protect ourselves or another. The steps listed in this article are all under the presumed disposition that you are presently safe.
You may have heard before that the world you see is a reflection of your inner world. What this means is the amount of shadow or un-integrated ego we are carrying within us will be directly proportionate to the amount of “shadow” we will see in our outer world.
This is why we can have one person seeing a completely happy, abundant world while the person right next to them sees an angry and judgmental one.
When we know this and accept it as our truth an amazing thing happens. Instead of using the nightly news, let’s say, as a means to blame (insert name of your most hated religious figure/politician/country/etc here) for the problems in the world, we use it as an opportunity to bring awareness to an unhealed aspect of ourselves.
If we are angered or frustrated with how our political climate is going, that’s perfectly ok, and completely understandable considering the stories that run through the nightly news but energetically it means it is time to make peace with these emotions by allowing ourselves to feel them, which ultimately leads to transforming and healing them.
No emotion is ‘wrong’, per se, however in order to BE the change we wish to see to the world we live in, it is always best to be coming from the healthiest and ultimately most loving stance.
When we are angry we come out with our fists up and guns blazing, which is never energetically the answer to fight hate and anger with. A loving being is able to rise to a consciousness that allows them to help others who have been victims of atrocities, feed the hungry, give clothes to the poor, etc.
Whereas an angry person normally uses, complaining, fighting, or screaming as their response to the injustice in the world. Which do you think is more effective?
Step Two: Determine Your Purpose
After we have gotten to a place where we have gone inward first and our approach to the world is coming from a more emotionally stable and healthy place, then it is time to determine what our purpose in bringing about change is.
If we are not able to make grand gestures of charity or don’t feel inclined to go door to door handing out pamphlets for our favorite political candidate then that is perfectly ok!
Many lightworkers are here holding space for the vibration of the planet, meaning they are simply being a filter by which they can transform and heal the collective unconscious, all while sitting in the comfort of their own home, work, school, etc.
Their work is done mostly on an energetic level, which may not make sense to the outside world, but if you have found yourself drawn to do things like meditating or blessing people energetically rather than spreading awareness about the current political candidates, for instance, it is most likely that you are one of these “frequency holders.” This is perfectly ok, and know that you are doing just as much for this planet as those that are starting charities, writing books, etc..
Now, if you truly feel like you are more of an action taker and are drawn to take external steps to help the collective, then this is when you can decide what action step feels the most appropriate for our individual journey.
And remember, no action is too small. The one and only question we should ask ourselves before we take any action step is, “Is my behavior aligned with solutions or still aligned with the problem?”
For instance, things like starting fight on social media, insulting or trying to humiliate people who have a different viewpoint than you (no matter how closed minded they seem), are all things that are fighting darkness with more darkness.
However, things like, offering a job to an unemployed person, buying only from local businesses, or donating books to a prison are all solution based action steps.
Even though it seems as if we are all living in the same reality, it is very evident that our perspectives are vastly different and also are our purposes. The answer to changing the world should always allow for us to go within first and foremost.
We each come to this world with unique gifts and insights that, when shared from the viewpoint of our soul’s highest wisdom, will ultimately end up changing the fabric of reality, one person at a time.
