18 Signs That You’re Here to Transform Human Consciousness
For many years now, a lot of people have been talking about “The Shift,” this mysterious transformation of human consciousness that is supposedly underway. Ever since the end of the Mayan calendar in December of 2102, New Age types tend to twitter away about the evolution of the species, the revolution of love, and other hopeful but fuzzy seeming changes in what it means to be human. I want to take a minute to help us all ground this floaty notion a bit.
Do you have a vision of some aspect of a more beautiful world, and you know it’s your sacred purpose to help bring it into being?
Do you sense that something is out of alignment in the world, and you want to be a part of the solution?
Have you experienced a life-altering event that changed everything for you, and now you want to use that experience to help others?
Do you have an innovative idea that might make the world a better place?
Do you feel called to help others heal, transform, connect, love, create, succeed, and thrive?
Yeah, I thought so. I had a feeling you were one of us! Welcome to what my friend Martha Beck calls “The Team.” In her book Finding Your Way In A Wild New World, Martha Beck defines Team members by the following characteristics. You may not recognize every single attribute, but if you’re a Team member, you’re likely to be nodding your head a lot as you read through these characteristics of those whose souls incarnated here on this planet right now to facilitate this mystical shift in human consciousness. See if any of these Team traits resonate with who you are and how you feel.
If you read that list (like I did) thinking “Check, check, check,” you’re definitely one of us visionary healer mender way-finders on The Team. And the world needs you to fulfill your sacred purpose — pronto!
As Martha wrote, “If enough people start mending their true nature in the incredibly interconnected world we’re creating, the cumulative effect really could begin healing the true nature of, well, everything.”
In my new book The Anatomy of a Calling, I wrote about Team members, but also about the “karass”, which is its own special form of Team gathering.
In Cat’s Cradle, Kurt Vonnegut writes about how God organizes the world into units which he calls a “karass.” A karass is a unit of incarnated beings whose job it is to bring into being one of God’s holy ideas. Members of a karass all further the collective purpose seamlessly, though many never even know they are part of this karass. Even if they never meet, they work together in harmony, in impeccable service to God’s holy idea. Everything about their lives furthers the purpose perfectly, even though they may be furthering the purpose unconsciously. When you meet someone who is a member of your karass, even though it may make no sense to you on a human level, you will recognize them as a family member instantly. Your souls will resonate, even if you appear to have nothing in common on the human level. This is how the Divine gets important things done in the world. Your karass is like a peaceful army that activates to bring light into the world.
Vonnegut compares the karass to its polar opposite, which he calls “The Granfalloon.” The Granfalloon is a group of people who think they are connected to each other in some way, but they have no spiritual connection whatsoever. For example, the Harvard class of 1986 — or the Republican party — or Mets fans. They are completely unrelated to each other when it comes to their soul purpose. They may think they belong to the same tribe, but the bond is shallow, whereas the bond between members of a karass runs deep and pure. Members of the same karass are held to their purpose like electrons around a nucleus. Some live very close to the purpose. Some are further out. But all are held to the purpose by a spiritual magnetism. They may have never met each other, or they may be married to each other. They may work in the same field, or they may have very different careers. But their lives fit together in service to this shared spiritual purpose.
We are all here for an unknown purpose. Serving this purpose makes us feel fulfilled and enriched. But if we get seduced off purpose — by ambition, fame, money, or the ego’s grasping at comfort — our vitality gets stolen from us. When we commit to this purpose we’re here to serve, when we give ourselves to serving it with great impeccability, everything begins to fall into place.
To help support Team members who are in service to their karass, I wrote a free e-book How to Uplift the World: A Guide For Inspired Visionaries, which you can download as my gift here. Included in this book are the “10 Attributes of Successful Visionaries,” along with practical tips to help cultivate each of these attributes. When we gather together to support each other, we uplift our shared mission and help to uplift the world together.
Joseph Campbell said, “So that’s what destiny is: simply the fulfillment of the potentialities of the energies in your own system.”
Nobody has forged this path for you because it is your unique path. Nobody can predict for you where the path will end, because every twist and turn of the path will be a surprise, and anything is possible. But one thing is guaranteed. When you fully commit to the realization of your vision, free from the ego’s grasping attachments, unseen forces are likely to help you out. My new favorite word is “pronoia,” the opposite of paranoia. It’s the unshakable belief that everything in the Universe is conspiring to support you and shower you with blessings.
If you have been called to serve one of God’s holy ideas, you will not walk this path alone. The perfect people will show up to support your journey. The check will arrive in the mail. The tools you need will be offered to you. You will be given opportunities to learn the lessons you must learn. And when you look back upon your whole life — the triumphs, the challenges, and everything in between — you’ll discover that you were groomed for this task your entire life. There is no greater gift in life than this.
Blessing to you on your journey,
This is a long but excellent talk given last month in London by Dr. Steven Greer about the full scope of the Earth-ET relations and his work to de-centralize communications with off-planetary civilizations and to create a populist movement, to seize these relations away from the hegemony of the "Petro-Nazis, militarist war-mongers and misanthropic money-whores."
Yes, this is 2 hours long but you probably would otherwise spend that amount of time watching incredibly stupid television programming (I don't touch the stuff, myself). This is far more interesting, regardless of whether you believe what he is saying or not.
At 9.30 minutes, he explains why you are not hearing about this in mainstream media - because they can't understand it!

phenomenon known as the Dark Night of the Soul is something which many
spiritual seekers experience on their journey to re-enlightenment.
The word ‘night’ is misleading. This is a process, and thankfully so. I doubt you would want to experience the purification process all at once. My own Dark Night journey began in 1994 and culminated this year (2013). While that may seem like an inordinate amount of time, I didn’t go through the process continually, thank heavens, but rather in stages. The length and intensity of the process is determined by the degree of purification one requires.
You feel totally alone. You
don't know many, if any, people that have gone through this. You don't
feel like being bothered with loved ones and friends that don't
understand because they either think you are crazy and need help or
their own fears arise about it and it make matters worse. You barely
have any energy or interests anymore.
of this as peeling an onion. Each layer you strip away brings tears to
your eyes. You stop for a while in order to recover, and then you
proceed to the next layer. Once you reach the core, you are at the heart
of your angst.
The good news is you have already faced the worst. Nothing that you unearth during this process will ever be as bad as the original pain you experienced. You were strong enough to face it once, so you are more than capable of releasing it now. And, once it’s purified, it is gone for good.
Essentially, the Dark Night of the Soul is the
death of the (malignant) ego. I say ‘malignant’ because the ego is not
inherently bad or in need of extinguishing. The ego provides the soul
with the illusion of separation so that we may explore creations that
differ from the unified field of Love from which we originate.
The ego in its present form, however, is overly
dominant. We live in an egocentric era. The Cult to Self is celebrated
through our worship of celebrity, fame, fortune, superficial beauty and
power. Narcissistic behaviors are often rewarded in this ego-driven
climate. The external world is a projection result of the malignancy of
our collective ego state.
From the ego’s perspective, this equates to death. It, therefore, isn’t going to surrender without a fight. The key is not to resist the ego. That being said, non-resistance is not easy. In fact, your ego will do everything in its power to cling to the old, but your higher self knows better.
As we awaken from the shadows of our dream life
on Earth to the limitless, formless, eternal nature of the Soul, the
form and thought-based illusions of our life begin to dissolve. The very
foundation of one’s human existence crumbles, leading to an existential
crisis of faith.
Your existential crisis can cut you off from
others. The battle you’re fighting is internal. It’s akin to depression,
except that it is spiritual rather than mental in nature. The ego is
fighting for its life, and thus it resists the purification process.
Remember though, these symptoms stem from the
ego’s perspective on life. The soul knows that everything has meaning,
pleasure and beauty. Once you supplant your ego with your soul, life
becomes vibrant again.
As your ego’s domain is dismantled, your
external world will reflect this internal process. That which does not
serve your highest good falls away. While this stage may seem
destructive and painful, it is actually helping to break ego’s hold over
you by forcing it to surrender everything it holds dear.
It’s like the old adage says: “Beware the man
who has nothing left to lose”. That man is absolutely fearless. When you
lose everything your ego values, its fear-based hold on you shatters.
Please note, I’m not advocating that you must lose everything. I’m just explaining what sometimes happens during the process. For instance, if you find yourself facing loss (i.e. divorce, job loss, and bankruptcy) know that this has helped to shatter your ego’s hold over you. The more dramatic the loss, the more rapid the purification process.
As you empty yourself of ego/fear, you create more room to house your soul’s love, light, wisdom, beauty and joy.
At this point, things may appear bleak and
hopeless; but, to quote another old gem, “It’s always darkest before the
dawn”. I liken this to sinking into the murky depths. You feel like you
will never see the light of day again, and that all is lost. Then,
suddenly, your feet touch ground and you are able to push off the bottom
giving you the momentum propel you back into the light.
You’re almost through this learning
curve, and when you emerge on the other side of the Dark Night, you will
rediscover the joy and beauty of the world. You are the phoenix, being
purified by fire. Once you have rid yourself of the ego fears, you will
be ‘reborn’ or transformed as a freer, happier higher-vibrational
version of you.
