What Is the “Collective Consciousness”?

A big part of understanding all the incredible changes going on in the world today — where personal transformation is becoming more and more the “in” thing, and people who are stuck in fear and hatred are now seen by many as simply unaware of their true spiritual nature.

“We think and therefore we affect,” says Lynn McTaggart in THE FIELD: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe. She explains further, “At our essence we exist as a unity, a relationship — utterly interdependent, the parts affecting the whole at every moment.”

Most of us grew up learning that we should stand on our own feet and not be dependent on anyone. We have a name for people in unhealthy relationships, and that’s “codependent,” so how on earth could it be a good thing to be “interdependent”?  It’s not that we are drones in a hive, or mindless beings in a robotic dystopian world. Being interdependent is, first of all, something that just “is”–it is part of our nature and we can’t change it. We can push against it and try to stand alone, but all that happens is our energy joins that part of the collective consciousness that is lonely, afraid, and struggling for success and happiness.  Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “Man’s mind once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimension.”

Without our connection with each other, the loneliness in the world would be immense, and we would not have the boundless inspiration and synchronicity that we feel on a daily basis. For many thousands of years, the low level of conscious awareness about the human mind and the operation of thought had us nodding in the belief that the sun rotated around the earth, that if you sailed to the horizon, you’d fall off the edge, that life was meant to be a vale of tears filled with struggle and pain.

But today, we have quantum physics opening up our ability to understand that we live in a marvelously creative universe– and we are all creators in it. We came into this lifetime to create. We came here to be part of this fantastic time of transformation and generate a tipping point where more people will believe in peace, freedom and love and our results will reflect that shift.
