Everyone has heard that ‘seeing is believing’. It seems like such an easy concept to grasp. You see something with your own two eyes. You know deep within your being that this is real. And you believe in it. Novel concept. Sort of.
Last week, there was a UFO over New Jersey. Thousands of people saw it, filmed it, and talked about it online. Only to have, the next day, a semi-plausible excuse to toss it under the rug. And for the top hit being how it was a hoax instead of the massively circulated videos. Apparently according to the news, it was the Goodyear Blimp flying over New Jersey. That, sort of, makes sense, except it was in the air and then not. It was there and then gone. That doesn’t make sense for a blimp. The Goodyear Blimp sounds like the most consistent media excuse for a UFO sighting, except perhaps being told the government is testing a new aircraft.
To me, it sometimes feel like we have been completely conditioned to only believe what the media or government tell us to believe. Not completely, mind you, but we take their words more seriously at times than what we can see in front of us. In Doctor Who … Please, I hope you realize my tangents have points by article five. Okay. In Doctor Who, there has been alien invasions two to three times a year since the 1960’s. Yet, the people on Earth seem to take the LESS plausible excuses put out by the media, generally through the government. Sure, this is tongue in cheek to keep the series as realistic as possible to what people experience, but I think it’s a little closer to the truth.
Shows like Ancient Aliens, and Paranormal Caught on Tape utilize the fact that people are putting pieces together for extraterrestrial and multi-dimensional links to humanity. Channels of all types connect to alien beings from far off star systems. Hell, prayer connects us directly to God. There is absolutely no way we are alone.
Now, I have walked back my own experiences. I was once sitting beside a friend as he was playing with energy. I had my hand sitting on the couch between us. He made my hand jump up. You can find lots of scientific reasons for it. I had a muscle spasm. I had been watching him and made him do it. But, in that moment, I knew he was the one to do it. And by both of our reactions, we both know it happened. And somehow I forgot about it. Not forget like completely vanished from my mind, but even as he spoke about it later, it seemed more of a foreign thought than something that actually happened. Different type of experience, but the same need to ground myself in reality over the possibility of something so beyond what I’ve known.
One more tangent to bring this all together. In the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan, there is this concept of ‘the Mist’. This mist hides the abilities of demigods, mythical creatures, and even mythical lands in plain view that people can easy see and understand. They will accept the boy is holding a pen and having a seizure over him using a sword to fight a harpy.
I actually believe that our media, governments and even our churches, have creating something very similar. The false information that is put out there to sort of create this false reality of our cosmic uniqueness that we as a people have limited ourselves as a people to not see the other beings out there.
Think back on your own connection to intuition and spirit. Think about what people will tell you is a coincidence instead of very connected piece in a larger puzzle. Think about those little moments that you know mean more. What truths do you feel for yourself?
More and more people are awakening to not only these other worlds, but their own internal world that offers them their highest possible self to believe in, experiment with, and become. It all starts with believing what you see and experience.
I’d like to hear what you have to say in the comments. Or what sort of things you have experienced that you’d want to share. This is what rings true to me, and what I wanted to share with you all today. I wish you well on your journey.
