The Mandela Effect (ME) and Expanded Consciousness:
Last night I had the pleasure of sitting in on a panel with Propagate This Light and his guests, for his podcast stream on spiritual topics.
The YouTube link is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRy1a1nrQV0
if you want to check out the conversation. All further discussion in this blog is my view, my belief system, and not the content of the other panelists of the aforementioned podcast. My views are my own. The conversation expanded my consciousness more, and so I recommend it to anyone who enjoys spiritual conversation to uplift personal vibration.
Propagate (aka Prop) and I got to know each other due to our common interest in the phenomenon called The Mandela Effect (ME). If you have never heard of the ME, basically what it is is that many people have noticed changes in human (collective) reality that other people do not notice. It can be small changes like the way your workstation was set up has been altered, where you know it was different in the past and YOU did not make the change yourself. The ME may appear as a big change, like the title of a book from your childhood has been altered with a different version of the name, or a world leader that you know to have died while imprisoned was still alive years after he was released from prison. These bigger reality shifts can be disconcerting when we notice them. They can have us thinking maybe something is wrong with our memories, that we are crazy, or that the people who accept the current reality as having been that way all the time are the crazy ones.
It is called The Mandela Effect because stories about these reality changes first seemed to have been noticed by many people concerning Nelson Mandela. He was a South African anti-apartheid activist and politician who served as the first president of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black head of state and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid by fostering racial reconciliation (Wikipedia).
After opposing the National Party's white-only government, Nelson was arrested and imprisoned in 1962, and, following the Rivonia Trial, was sentenced to life imprisonment for conspiring to overthrow the state. Now, when I was a teen in the late 1980’s, I remember that Mr. Mandela died in prison. I watched his widow Winnie Madikizela Mandela and televised funeral that was conducted for Neslon. Nelson was widely celebrated for his heroism in fighting against tyranny and for the rights of all people not to be controlled by the ruling class white elitists. If you look at Wikipedia right now, you will see that Nelson Mandela did not die until December 5th 2013, he had been released from prison and even divorced with Winnie and married another woman before his death in 2013. What happened there? You read the dates I gave and something doesn’t match up! Am I delusional about witnessing Nelson Mandela’s funeral when I was a teen? Maybe. But I am going to discuss what I think happened to my memories and consciousness, and as always, I am going to talk about this topic within the framework of quantum realities.
The basis of all of my work as a quantum healer is that there is no one fixed reality. We have individual realities, which are called subjective reality, and we also move in a world where there is collective reality, which is shared, and called objective reality. Both exist together, and free will choice comes into play by the decisions we make concerning our definitions of what is real. If we pay close attention to what the collective of humanity tells us is true, ignoring what personal experience tells us is true, then we can be said to maintain objective truth. That becomes manifest in our reality. But, if we rely more on our personal experiences instead of believing what people outside of ourselves tell us to believe, then we will maintain a more subjective reality.
That being said, unless you live alone on a mountaintop somewhere where no other people visit, and you completely self-sustain, then no matter how subjective your reality is, there will always be the influence of objective reality, the collective of humanity, to consider. As children, we must cling to objective reality to survive on planet Earth without being rejected by the society we live in. Some children remember who they are essentially, Source beings, and so they refuse to comply with many objective definitions of reality. Those are labeled mentally ill or some other label that denotes they should not be allowed to share their views with other children because that would be dangerous. The children that rebel are often silenced through confinement, isolation, or medication. They quickly learn to “fall into step” with what society tells them they should be, otherwise they remain outcaste. As we age and become able to care for ourselves, the objective point of view becomes more of a choice. Do I believe ___, or not? This is the opportunity that all humans have to exercise their free-will more freely! No longer can society force you to believe anything. You will not be imprisoned, unless you break the law or harm someone, for thinking differently and holding individual beliefs.
That is the choice, isn’t it? Do I still believe the concepts that have been jammed down my throat from a young age? Or are there other things I can now feel free to believe?
I contend that on the soul level, we purposefully place our consciousness on Earth to have this experience (within a body), and that this free-will choice to be here, to focus soul consciousness here, can be called Karma because we set into motion the experiences to be limited, and then have the opportunity to set ourselves free! To me it seems like the soul expands by placing itself into limited situations, and then when it breaks free from limitation, there is wisdom gained from doing that. I also contend that consciousness is all that we are, right back to God/Source consciousness. We place our focus, our consciousness into a vessel we call a body so that we can have experiences other than being Source.
I do talk about my theories of why Source is doing this, splitting itself into souls and having all kinds of varied experiences, in my second upcoming book, Quantum Explorations: Far Beyond 3D. The book is in the editing phase, and I’ll let you know when it is published. For now, let me simply say that Source wants to experience what it knows, which is everything. And why not split up into infinite parts and see how varied experiences play out? We are all One having individual perspectives through varied levels of consciousness. The energy of the One (Source/God) is the same, but it is experiencing through individual levels of consciousness in what we call dimensions, and this is why some souls forget that they are of the One, part of The All, because they have focused in a dimension where consciousness is limited. This is intentional on the part of the soul. How can we experience separation from Source if we remember we are of Source when we get here? What would be the point of coming to Earth at all if we decided not to forget? We would automatically know that reality on Earth is an illusion and that we can create anything we wish to experience within the illusion. Every single person here has their own concept of reality. It has been shown many times that people may witness the same event and each one will have experienced the event somewhat differently than the others. Why? Because we each have our own fields of belief within our personal consciousness. Each belief colors what we perceive to be real and true. I have stated that all truths are true, and this is the reason behind that statement. I cannot tell you that what I have perceived through my experiences is THE truth for everyone. But I can tell you it is my truth. And that can change anytime given that I am willing to expand my consciousness to allow new truths to come to me.
What does all of this have to do with the Mandela Effect? Right. Let’s get to the meat and potatoes about that. Consciousness is aware of certain things in what we think of as reality. The way the workspace is organized, the title of a book, and whether a man is alive or dead,
for instance. When consciousness is expanded through receiving more energy; like learning something new or going out into nature and soaking in the beneficial energy of the grass and trees, consciousness shifts and becomes aware of new realities. The field of vision, so to speak, becomes broader and includes more awareness of itself. A shift occurs when consciousness expands, and many objective elements in what we call reality shift also. Some, if not most of the elements of the prior reality remain unchanged. The objects in the reality are mostly the same, like for example your job and the workspace you go to every day. The objects that have changed become noticeable, like the way you arrange your workspace is different.
The human mind wants to understand the changes it notices, especially when the cause of the change cannot be found. When many people notice the same changes (i.e. the title of a popular children’s book), it gives them the courage to speak together to try to illuminate why the reality shifted for them and not everyone else.
I contend that what happens when people notice the ME is that they have in some way changed their personal energy, lifted it or reduced it, and this has allowed those people to share a new version of reality. Humanity does seem more and more excited about raising consciousness, to be unity consciousness beings, and so as individuals lift their vibrations, there are others doing the same thing, and this brings us to another, higher consciousness reality.
For me, shifting from the reality that Nelson Mandela died in prison to Nelson Mandela was alive and continuing his mission was evidence of a positive shift to a higher timeline of reality. Yes, a major Earthly reality changed, and I might have thought my memory was flawed. The new reality was more consistent with my level of consciousness (positive – hopeful for the world) when I noticed this example of the ME because I had been working diligently on raising my internal vibration. An upgrade, in my opinion. It showed me that people working in the best interest of all humanity can and do succeed. Before that instance of the ME, I was sure there was no way to fight the tyranny of corrupt governments and win. It filled me with hope for the future.
If you can accept the idea that as we raise our vibrations, our realities will shift, then the ME becomes a normal experience and confirmation of your shifting. Universal forces rearrange the energy of reality so that it matches your internal state of being. Want to experience a higher reality? Do what you need to do to raise your personal vibration. All that means is to live your life according to your values, and do not let someone else tell you what those should be. The more joy you experience, the more your vibration will increase and then you find yourself living within a vastly different reality experience. It takes a little getting used to… changing or discarding old patterns that no longer serve you in favor of new thoughts and emotions. But if I can do it, you can do it!
There is something that I have to add to this discussion of shifting reality. Whatever we caste out into darkness, whatever we judge to be wrong and unacceptable, we then caste out an expression of God/Source. Yes, the most heinous thing any person can do, it does not take away their connection to Source. We cannot aim for unity consciousness while casting out parts of Source. Indeed, the aspects of Source that are doing heinous things have forgotten that they are Source like the rest of us. They sometimes behave in ways that seem impossible for us to fathom. But they are doing the rest of us a true service for which we need to be grateful for if we want to reach unity consciousness. That service is to mirror to us what we choose not to be.
Consider for a moment that you, as a soul, have many lives, many incarnations. Is it possible that during an incarnation where you had lower consciousness you might have done heinous things too? I think we all have, but we don’t remember right away that this is the case because those ‘other’ versions of ourselves are in another dimension. I found out about some of my other incarnations through quantum hypnosis. Some of them I would not be proud to own if I was not accepting that all of me is also Source having different explorations of consciousness. All the parts of you are of Source as well. The “dark ones” are also the “light ones”, in another dimension. They have agreed to come to Earth and show us their darker side so that we may see it and make other choices. This is the service they provide by being their shadow self in this reality we share.
In life we label and judge ourselves and each other. Unity consciousness accepts all, without judgement, and asks…what are you choosing to be? This is the vehicle for consciousness expansion. It does not mean that we stop protecting ourselves from those that would do us harm. We need to survive and feel safe in this world. However, we can accept all the versions of ourselves and others as Source expressions, even when we do not like them very much.
Separation is the mechanism through which we are able to see many limitless choices and then decide if we choose to be our highest selves or not. Anyone is capable of shifting their state of being-ness to higher energy expression. Energy shifts lead to ME experiences. ME experiences are confirmation of the shifting of personal energy, and sometimes collective energy (humanity as a whole is shifting consciousness as well).
We are coming to the realization that we ARE God/Source beings and therefore whatever we do to another, we do to ourselves and The All, The One. This is the realization that the ascended masters have come to the Earth over the years to help us to see. They did not want us to put them on a pedestal and worship them! They wanted to show us by their own words and deeds how to be aligned with the energy of your true self, God/Source. If we continue to keep them on pedestals, then we are casting ourselves out of divinity. It then becomes impossible to become your higher self because the belief is that it is not possible. We can blame “bad people” and “the devil” for all that is wrong in our reality, or we can step into our divine nature and act as the ascended masters did.
Psalm 82:6 New Revised Standard Version Updated Edition
The Old Testament writing of Asaph said: “I say, you are gods, children of the Most High, all of you.”
Jesus referenced this message of Asaph’s during his ‘trial’ to show that he was not blaspheming when he called himself the son of God. And Jesus agreed with Asaph. He spoke to many about how we are all sons and daughters of the father, and that makes us One.
