The Occult Power in Individualism vs The Group Mind

Individuality is a key component in the magic of creative expression

Reality is a series of concepts and ideas.  To define it as such offers new meaning and new perceptions. A “concept” is defined as:

Merriam Dictionary: something conceived in the mind (2): an abstract or generic idea generalized from particular instances

What we experience as reality are these concepts and ideas crystalized into form. They are adjustable and alterable making reality a pliable experience. Endless expressions of reality are played out both on an individual level and on a collective level.  We become emotionally bonded to these experiences.

There is an occult source of power accessible to the individual.  On the collective platform this degree of individual power is down played and overridden by a hive and borg mind program. There is tremendous misrepresentation in the promotion of collective or group power. There is no doubt that there is power in numbers but the fact is that a single individual who is fully invested in his or her power has the capacity to have an even greater impact than a group. Although this is disregarded, the fact remains that groups can collectively function in a lesser vibration than that of a single being. How is that possible? It’s very possible when the individuals of a group are diminished in their individual level of power. The word “Power” says it all; we are speaking of the electromagnetic frequency (emf) output; the level of vibrational output. This inner power emits a vibration or frequency, which is contingent on the degree to which we are aligned with the more expansive aspect of who we are. How deeply rooted are we in disabling beliefs and programs.  

Much of the “oneness” movement has encouraged and supported limiting interpretations and limiting programs. It is crucial to understand that for thousands of years we have been programmed to operate in a group capacity in support of the weakened state that we as humans now exist in. When “super-natural beings” became human, over time the powers once held gradually became weakened or lessened and eventually became a forgotten memory. Operating as a group then became essential both physically and mentally. Group function has less to do with our overall “oneness” in creation. We are filled with reasons and validations for certain actions and beliefs held. This does not mean that groups should be abandoned but instead they are strengthened by individuals standing in their own power and not solely dependent on the power of the group. The group mind formula often reduces individual strength and creativity as the individual conforms to the beliefs and guidelines of the group. We see this in our societies, in religious and spiritual group, support groups etc.

For this reason many companies are cautious of hiring entrepreneurs or previous business owners. Individualists are not sought but instead the objective has been to seek out those to who will easily meld into group structures. They want team players because individuals break down structures especially oppressive power structures. Individualists are leaders and are driven by this hidden power that they themselves are even unaware of.  This power is the source cracking through the human matrix.  Individual expression is significant as it allows a diverse range of experiences. Individuality is a key component in the magic of creative expression.

This borg or one mind programming is reinforced by the usual suspects; educational systems, religious systems, corporate systems, spiritual beliefs, new age movement and governmental systems. We are grouped and categorized in every component of our world. Individuality dismantles systems. We find that even in the most incredible scientific break throughs by prominent figures in both the scientific and spiritual community, core game constructs are not discussed. It is somehow trivialized by focusing only on the science or certain areas of spirituality, the two being cohesively joined.

Much like the Matryoshka dolls aka Russian nesting dolls; one inside the other; reality is a series of illusions happening in layers.  These illusions are experienced according to the level of understanding that we are operating from. It’s all adjustable according to alterations in our beliefs. Everything can be overridden or rewritten. Perhaps we should ask the question of who is dreaming the dreamer, because in order for these potentials and concepts to be experienced there must be a dreamer.

There are stratums of rulers, dreamers’ and gods who are only rulers and gods when we are unaware of our potentials beyond the current construct of the human experience. There is tremendous vulnerability in the easy access to programming the human experience. The general human program can be easily reengineered. Throughout history it has been recorded the many groups and civilizations offering blood debt to the gods or of human sacrifice in order to avoid angering the gods. We are programmed to believe that our life is a debt to the gods which must therefore be paid by “death”. For only a “god” or one who is worthy may have life in abundance. The human program is one of debt and sacrifice.  In the Lord ’s Prayer we are reminded “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors” The entire Lord’s Prayer is quite interesting as the subservient nature of man is expressed. The realization of the lesser nature or weakened nature of man is made clear “lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thin is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.'  The evidence of an overseer or Supreme Being has been established in the human psyche for a very long time.  Fear of this supreme power is further driven home by deep levels of conditioning and warning not to push the envelope less we suffer the wrath of god; and be struck down by the hand of god. Who are these subjugators one should ask…should you spend time trying to figure it out? Not really. The point being made here is to encourage deeper levels of questioning, and to become aware of beliefs that do not add up. This is about stepping beyond old restricted beliefs that serve as cages around our mind, concepts which hold us hostage from our individual power.

We have been told to fear and to worship “god” for thousands of years. A supreme deity represented in various ways in many cultures.   Do these forces exist? Sure they do, everything exists, but all things require our engagement supported by specifically primed belief systems.  There are specific constructs adhering to specific rules for different reality paradigms. So it is in the human playing field. We engage in the experiencing of reality based on a set of rules and guidelines relevant to our awareness.

We are individual conduits for a source of power that has no beginning or end. We have been conditioned to be afraid of engaging with that power on an individual level. Sure we are encouraged to go in search of abundance and to create the life we want, and to seek a spiritual connection but it stops there. Everything that follows seems to navigate us to a collective experience that is generally about changing the world, creating a new paradigm or collective ascension. This is not to say that these are not valid but it conjures up a sense that unless we are creating a new paradigm from a group mind model then change will not be possible. This is a truth when this is the foundation of beliefs. When the belief is deeply rooted in the base collective human program then the collective model becomes the only way.

The great masters whom we so readily reference traveled through their own evolution without attachment to a collective evolution. As long as we continue to deteriorate and to age and die it is evident that we are deficient in the kind of knowledge necessary for profound individual transformation. We must give the ok; we must give ourselves permission to be whole individually so that we may freely express this power without fear. This power is who we are beyond the smoke and mirrors of physical reality. There are many levels of the playing field and many options for reality along with many players.  There is a power that moves through us and through all things and we also move through it. That power is all all things at once and this we see in our current understanding of the movement and expression of wave and particles. We seek a higher power than ourselves. We choose to view this as mystical by our spiritual interpretations which most often produce tremendous limitations. We experience guilt in seeing ourselves as the very source we seek.

Our current understanding of this human experience is indeed a lesser expression of a grander force. However we are this omnipresence which animates all levels of reality and all potentials. It is this power, this magic sought by many secret societies, especially those who are in positions of high levels of understanding. The general collective are however redirected and encouraged to locate this power externally and to surrender their power completely. We surrender our memory, our will and our curiosity to savvy game players both in and outside of our designated realm as humans. 

Is this farfetched? Perhaps for some it might be. Curiosity never killed the cat! It is the lack of curiosity a carrier of knowledge...this is what will destroy the cat! Life is not just about the flesh and blood you, but it encompasses our vast and endless journey, discovering more of what we can be. There is no end to this discovery, only temporary lapses in memory as necessary. The journey is about everything! It is the great dance between ruler and subject, oppressor and oppressed. As we evolve our understanding our perception changes and the ruler and the oppressor disappears and what we are left with are new insights to create something new. So celebrate it all because you cannot lose and neither can you fail. We are playing a game of cat and mouse only to discover that we are both. What an incredible adventure! You are the “ONE” that you’ve been waiting for.

The occult power of individualism equals "disruptive potential" to the status quo. If "in-divide"ualism is shunned then "wholism" is shunned. Is it any wonder then that we have fragmented organizations and a fragmented experience in life. Initially waking up to this realization can create a disruption in our own psyche, as we then need to examine our selves, and our own potential for bravery in inserting our real selves into the moment. Sarah Vargas touched on this in her article today, as well, and I appreciate you both bringing it to point. This is an example of two strong individuals sounding their unique views, and far from a threat, actually strengthen the whole. If this cracks the matrix, well then...

This is exactly what I needed today Sonia. After hitting send on an email to a friend, I came to Spirit Library and read your post. Synchronicity at work! Here is an excerpt from the email:

"I am looking for validation from a world that has yet to experience the form I am manifesting in to substance. That is holding me back."

Your wise words helped me see something I knew...but needed to encompass further. Your line "Individuality is a key component in the magic of creative expression" really hit home. The group mind isn't who I am creating for. I am creating for me :)

Thanks for sharing your wisdom

You never cease to make me think, I mean really think, and become re-inspired. Your writings create a feeling inside of soul recognition and remembering. I have collected your work for years and continue to reread it. It takes more than one read to allow it to sink in. Thank you for this message. I needed it as I was allowing myself to succumb to the anxiety and sadness of these times. I can feel my mojo again.

Superb post and one to bring comfort to those who never quite felt like they fitted in. I know my purpose is to lead some sort of team. I love being a team player but every corporate team I was put in built tension and expectation that maybe I should do what I was advised by teachers when I was at school... "Dance smaller so you don't make the others feel so bad."

Such damaging advice.

It's time to start shining as yourself not giving a damn about what others think. Once you are strong in that sense you can band together with others and appreciate their diversity to make an All Stars Team.

There is an Abraham-Hicks quote about 1 aligned person has much more affect/effect then 10,000 unaligned people.
Groups begin to have great affect/effect when each aligned whole individual comes together in a group as a whole.
Also reminds me of "Sweep in front of your own door and the whole world will be clean."
This is coming together in the new dimension, now present.
Each whole, aligned cog in the wheel comes together to create a better wheel.
Headed there now with great collaboration and fun that will show up as new form.
