Are you a starseed believer or a ‘deluded schmuck’? Or are you just completely not triggered?

So, the mainstream media have started to report about groups of people that – gasp – believe they are ‘not from here’. Otherwise known as starseeds, these poor misguided individuals actually believe that a) we’re not alone in the multiverse and b) that the human body, miraculous as it is, is not the only form a soul might inhabit.

Clearly anyone believing in that kind of phenomena must be on drugs, looking to escape reality or just plain mad.  Because, after all, the government would have told us if there were aliens. Right…? And let’s not forget the scientific evidence, that is, apparently, completely missing for any kind of life ‘out there’.

I’m afraid, despite all the colourful language and accusations flying around, I can barely elicit a yawn in response.

There is, perhaps quite rightly, hot debate amongst the new-age communities about all this. Isn’t it just another form of prejudice? ‘Starseedism’ perhaps? After all, it’s just another ‘origin theory’ if you like, along with many of the religions of the world. And, good point, but that’s actually not what interests me about all this.

What interests me is that I’m NOT triggered! Maybe they need to throw bigger insults, and question the sanity of delusional individuals such as myself? Or maybe I’m just too bored to muster up much outrage.

After all, the reaction of the non-woo parties makes sense. If you’ve never even considered the possibility of life, other than on our, quite frankly, magnificent planet (that we’re doing a good job of destroying, but that’s another story!)  then it would of course, be a laughable idea that any form of non-human might exist.  Laughable, crazy, impossible and even a bit frightening. ‘Mars Attacks!’ anyone? Ack! Ack! (whoops – showing my age there!)

So I can totally understand the derogatory comments. It kind of makes sense. What is doesn’t do, is change my mind, or my beliefs on the subject, or anyone else’s for that matter. So, it seems a bit pointless to argue.

It actually makes me giggle, the thought that anyone ‘down here’ can state with absolute confidence that they know actually what is and isn’t present in the vastness of the multiverse. Especially when we haven’t even been able to explore further than our own solar system.

To state that you know ‘all about something’ is also a little bit flawed in my opinion. I mean, you might have extensive and even expert knowledge in a particular area, but do you know everything there is to know? Surely you are looking at things from your own subjective lens in any case – which I’m not knocking – it is a valuable and beautiful thing to see through your own lens and then share those thoughts and ideas with others.

In some of the communities I’m a part of, they talk about the danger of coming to conclusions and while it’s a bit of a head-spinner at first (what do you mean there’s no absolute truth?!) I have to agree.

I think of it a bit more like, well, I’ve reached this point in my thinking. It’s pretty solid, I can’t get further that that, so this is my current theory. There’s probably more truth to add at a later point, but this is fine for now.

So, instead of hurling insults and abuse at one another over whether and what we believe, maybe we should all accept that there is more than one truth, and that none of us have the whole truth (and nothing but the truth!). After all, the more you know, the more you realise you DON’T know – and that in itself, can be a beautiful thing.

For all the gods are one god and all the goddesses are one goddess and to every man his own truth – and the god within.

Don’t rise up — ground in! The myth of ascension and why it’s missing the mark.

‘Earth Moo’ by Daniel Saunders

If you’ve been surfing anywhere in the metaverse you will have come across talk of ascension – something, we should all be aspiring to because, apparently, all the world actually needs is for humanity to ‘rise up.’

Isn’t that great? Take a look at humanity. There are a lot of good people in the world, but do you actually see them ‘rising up?’ No, neither do I. It would take a miracle. And if you’ve been watching the world over the last few decades you’ll realise we are about all out of those!

But what about God? Angels and archangels. Higher vibrational beings. Aliens from outer space. Are they helping us at all? Well, yes, actually. There are a ton of higher vibrational energies being directed at earth and have been for a while.

All sorts of beings are working to raise the vibration of earth and trying to help humanity, which is great. Unfortunately, there seems to be a problem.

These helpful energies are bouncing off, or getting stuck, before they can ground down into the lower and more physical vibrations. And why is that? Well, suffice it to say that unfortunately, good is not the only energy out there!

That is a problem, because in order to manifest things into the world we need to bring our visions down from the clouds of our imagination to a level where they can become physical.

We might all have a ‘higher self’ but ultimately we’re here in physical bodies. So we need help at the physical level. And quite frankly, if all we’re doing is thinking about attuning to higher vibrations and how to ascend, then we’re doing the wrong thing!

I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with tuning in to higher vibrational energies and beings, but on its own, it’s just all too airy fairy to do any actual physical good.

I realise this might all sound rather negative and yes I am absolutely having a rant, but never fear, there is some very good news!

The energies that the planet and its people need in order to become more enlightened as a species are already waiting for us. And instead of ‘rising up’ to meet them, we need to pull them down — or ground them in — to our level.

Imagine them as balloons. If we float up to meet them, we can hang there in the sky, being about as helpful as a chocolate teapot, but if we grab their strings and pull them down, then all that peace, love and pure intent can manifest through us into the physical world.

So if you really want to do some good in the world, for god’s sake don’t float off into the ether. It might be nice up there but it’s a total cop out. The world needs you and it needs you down here, in the present moment, in your physical body acting as a grounding force for these wonderful energies that are being directed at the planet.

There’s nothing to say you can’t pop out and in and take an occasional trip in a balloon 😉 but at the end of the day you came to earth for a physical experience and earth needs you here and present to usher in the new age of love and light, that everyone is talking about.

So, walk barefoot on the earth, go on a digital detox, be mindful and conscious of being in your body. Tune into those wonderful energies hovering over the planet and deliberately draw them down onto the planet where they are so desperately needed.

One word of warning however — not all the energies aimed at the planet are as pure they ought to be — so use your discernment. If you are absolutely sure what you are grounding in, then do it.

If not, you can help by staying as grounded as possible in your physical body. We all watch TV and scroll mindlessly on our phones, but be aware, and try to keep it down.

Do more exercise, go out in nature, don’t spend every minute looking at a screen (she says while typing – but bear with me!) and, above all, try to be mindful of being in your body and in the present moment.

This is what the world needs right now. Tempting as it is to just float off away from everything, hang on in there and you can help humanity usher in a new age.
