Group Consciousness: Instinct Shows the Way

November 28, 2011

A murmuration of starlings, thousands celebrating strangely warm weather, late November, NE Scotland

A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.

Starlings are some of the most ubiquitous birds on the planet: seen in Asia and Europe as all-black, in north Africa and western USA, bespeckled with silver. They are also the most adaptable. They are equally at home in open Scandinavian farmland, the mountains of Scotland and over the ocean bays of the Northwest Pacific coast. They flock in ‘murmurations’, dancing at dusk before they swoop to their pre-roost. Then, just as suddenly, as if on a signal by a starling commander, they flip upwards to the sky once more, perform a reprise and –communally, as one — head for bed. Sometimes there is a twitter, a single juvenile not quite in tune with the rest, but mostly their flight is silent, except for its enormous “swoosh” as a thousand birds murmurate overhead. For a mere human, rooted to the ground, it is a seminal experience; a writer-friend says “gotta put this on my bucket list: see a murmuration before I kick it”. For the starling, it is an exercise in group consciousness. A pre-nap flex of those compact little bodies, as if to celebrate the last of the light.

As with many animals — the cetaceans, the wolves — the starling’s group consciousness shows how far we humans have strayed from our own instincts, our intuitive ability to sense the emotions, the loves and fears of our fellows.

Do starlings have a deeper connection to ocean life? or are they just teasing us? Murmuration over Gretna, Borders in Scotland's warmest Autumn 2011

A wolf knows the difference between an inconvenience and a catastrophe Clarissa Pinkola-Estes Women Who Run with the Wolves

It is our instinct, says Dr Clarissa Pinkola-Estes, American poet, author of ‘Women Who Run with the Wolves’, 1995, and Jungian psychotherapist, which women are reasserting, re-educating their families to recognize, allowing the long-hidden feminine ‘knowing’ to come back into its own. She likens parental instinct (often in both parents — not just restricted to the female source) to radar.

“A mama’s, papa’s heart tracks the presence, speed, direction, and distance of the swift-flying hearts of kidlettes… where those beloved flying objects are positioned, at what altitude, in what condition they are traveling. This is a normal state in nature, for the older to keep track of the young.” She believes that the mother-father-radar can track other objects of like kind. That this same radar can “map the surfaces of other ‘objects’ in the same sky… including their density and intents, whether near or far away, so as to sense ‘what else’ is ‘out there’ in the universe their lovelings travel day and night.” She is convinced human instinct just needs to be fostered for it to return alive and well to the human heart; that fear — exaggerated by Culture, bombarded by Media — dents and dulls instinct, damages its natural flow. But intuition can be repaired. She tells a sweet story to illustrate how.


“There is a little story in our family told about the wolf of the village named Gubbio. In our highly unconventional Schwäbisher version of the Gubbio Wolf, St Francis of Assisi who could speak to the animals, spoke to a Wolf the villagers madly feared for all its growling and staightlegged and ears-forward postures in the roads and behind the homes.

“Gentle Francis praised Wolf for her many attributes, but also whispered to Wolf, ‘Dont act quite so scary with the villagers, you know, keep some of the things you know and see to yourself… instead of always growling or barking them out over every little thing. That way the villagers will not fear you. And you can still see what you see, know what you know, and if need be, react accordingly.’

Women and wolves: tuned into their instincts; Pinkola-Estes' wolf archetype

“And Wolf agreed to do thusly, and loved St. Francis because Francis was gentle with her, and did not chastise her… but instead, taught her to remember her best self again.

“And thus, in our family the old people told the story that the Wolf from that day forward to whomever asked, would share her thoughts and ideas with whichever human being thought to ask Her about her far sight, her keen sense of smell and hearing, and her ‘tasting the air’.”
Women who run with the Wolves, 1992, 1995 C. Pinkola-Estes, American poet, post-trauma specialist and Jungian psychotherapist.

….Like an alert and healthy wolf, many a mother’s heart, a father’s heart carries a radar system in order to herd, teach, protect the vulnerable and the young…**

So, it happens that we, the human race have been gearing up to 2012, sensing with greater or lesser instinctual knowing, that something is afoot. It’s not just that solar radar is shooting flares at us in gay abandon — the current ‘radiation storm‘ causing anomalous weather, high-latitude aurora borealis and electrical blackouts — but deep in our cultural memory, our Oversoul anticipates and prophecies foretell something earth-shifting to take place as one World Age grinds to a halt and a New World Age starts up its engines.

Return to Source: realignment with the Center of the Milky Way December solstice 2012

What this new world will be, we still do not know — and unknowing has traditionally been the death of the logical mind. But there have been and continue to be many signs: from the Occupy movement statement of zero tolerance by our Youth, now two months down the line; to the much-vaunted-and-analyzed Long Count Calendar of the Maya, spiraling to a close in just over one year from now, December solstice, 2012, when coincidentally the Earth, Sun and Solar System will come into close alignment with Galactic Center. It is the moment the Maya foretold that we come into alignment with the Sacred World Tree, that deep chasm in space at the center of the Milky Way where we shall re-enter our Cosmic birth canal.

Windmill Hill July 26th, 2011 Ouroboros, mythical serpent consuming its own tail: return to our own birth canal

Looking back over the crop circle season of 2011 in England – and not forgetting a number of surprise Southern hemisphere appearances in Brazil end-October/early November, it seems we have been prompted many times to trigger our cultural folk memory, our Group consciousness, into desire to return to our ancestral roots: not just in terms of retuning into our Earth Mother — to care for and nurture her — but to our celestial roots where we rendezvous in December 2012 with the birth canal from which the solar system sprang: symbolized by the classic Ouroboros, serpent of wisdom and all knowledge, consuming his own tail.

New Man reborn from the mouth of the Serpent, Kukulkan

In Central American legend, when the serpent swallows his beginnings, New Man emerges from the serpent’s throat, reborn, rejuvenated, re-instructed in the wisdom of the spheres.

Unlike the internet system of ‘artificial intelligence’ of just one decade ago, the network most of us call our alternate home is burgeoning with spiritual advice, distance healing, consciousness-raising exercises and support groups. It is as if, in a few years we are being groomed to elevate our consciousness, ourselves, our Group Mind and hone our new knowledge and our Instinct in any way we can, in order to prepare ourselves for a meeting with our Greater Selves: it is as if the Attractor at the End of Time is calling us to become one with All that Is. And, unlike a few years ago, the concept is now less daunting. We are becoming accustomed to the idea that we ARE, as Carl Sagan once said, Children of the Stars, and that we are returning Home.

Feels good, doesn’t it?

11:11:11 Spark in the Park~ Collective Ascension

Kuwait's DNA spiral building; a little disconcerting if you're taking the elevator

The religion of the future will arise from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as “a meaningful unity” Albert Einstein, 1929 (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955), named The Great Relative by the Hopi

Six months ago, in early May, Celtic Beltane, at the time of the Festival of Wesak, primary date in the Buddhist calendar, Zen meditation/self actualization week, pinnacle of spring in the Northern hemisphere, many non-Buddhist people around the world were also taking time out to focus their thoughts and direct energy in appreciation of a bountiful season, along with a wish to improve the lot of Planet Earth.

All the ones
Now as the hinge of the seasons swings open another door — the 11:11:11 gateway — Celts and neo-Celtic groups the world over celebrate Samhain, the beginning of ancient Celtic New Year. The West remembers the armistice days of two world wars. A week ago Pagans had their Hallowe’en and the Roman Catholics their All Saints. Guy Fawkes was heralded as the 16thC equivalent of Occupy Westminster. Tonight the Moon reaches Full orb in Taurus. Astrologers worldwide are harnessing the predictive power of the planets with the changing season. As astronomers study intruders into the moon/earth system, numerologists are fascinated by this unique date, All the ones, statistically rare in any calculation or calendar count.

The Maya Longcount calendar continues on the runup to which coincides with northern winter solstice. Many tuning into the Internet expect something awesome to reveal itself on the Day of all the Ones.

November 9th Asteroid YU55-2005's close encounter with the Earth-Moon orbit system

As if to emphasize the coming-together of celestial forces, the heavens also provided a marvel to delight all camps: an asteroid coming close enough to Earth to bruise the ionosphere. On Wednesday, November 9th, potentially hazardous object, (PHO), asteroid 2005 YU55 strayed beyond the Asteroid Belt (Mars-Jupiter region) and wandered into Earth orbit –flying through between us and the Moon. The Nibiru-Planet-X camp were appeased by a close flyby without having to concede defeat in calculation of size. Backyard telescopes had a picnic, all searching to outdo each other’s photographic documentation and video records of the nearest-Earth flyby in living memory. Not quite as spectacular as the December 2009 Norway Spiral as a Sign-in-the-Heavens, but a close second.

Mount Arunachala, 'throne of Brahma' near Tiruvannamalai, Chennai-Madras, SE India, where Karthigai Deepam Festival of Lights is held by Tamil Hindus during November full moon

Every year during Karthigai Deepam festival (November-December full moon, November 10th), Tamil Hindus in SE India walk in sacred procession around their sacred mountain (Arunachala, right) and, as each night of the nine-day cycle leads up to full Moon’s conjunction with the Pleiades constellation, more lights are added in all homes, every temple, and oil lamps (Deepam) are placed in front of houses, increasing rows of lamps in the streets, until darkness becomes as bright as day. When full moon arrives, a huge ghee-filled vat of flame is kindled on the summit itself, seen for miles around, and it is common for celebrants to experience spontaneous healing, witness lightning, light flares and other heavenly phenomena appear over their sacred mountain. The lighted lamp is considered throughout India to be an auspicious symbol, believed to ward off evil and usher in prosperity and joy. All told, half the Indian subcontinent are celebrating, praying, communing with their gods right now and joining in with the same Unity Consciousness that was prevalent at a counterbalancing world festival six months ago, during Wesak, see above.

Spark in the Park

A similar unity consciousness is quietly making itself felt by the OWS movement, now 50 days on. While establishment media broadcasting worldwide continues sparse reportage, it is becoming clear that the movement is not only not going away, but is, according to David Crosby (above video with Graham Nash in Manhattan) attracting the same energy he saw as a young musician at anti-VietNam peace marches in the 1960s. He states in the interview: “…(Zuccotti) Park is only the Spark. We’ve just returned from a (music) tour in Europe. There they think America’s finally waking up.”

View from the Wheatfields

A series of wheat crop circles imprinted in Santa Catarina state, Brazil, only kilometers from where November designs first appeared (2008, 2009, 2010)

Almost as an afterthought, the ‘intelligence‘ behind the Circlemakers, points out that celestial signs are on the cards for the forseeable future. Four crop circles have appeared in succession since Hallowe’en, concentrated in a specific area of Santa Catarina. Brazil has only recently joined the crop circle ‘hub’. These designs are placed in the same area of Ipuaçú, where Brazil’s first crop circles appeared three years ago — to great local acclaim — only a few kilometres from where these latest ones were found. The phenomenon repeated itself in 2009 and 2010, also in the same area and at the same time of year. Of the four, the crop glyph at Ipuaçú, above, seems to be a clear representation of the inner solar system — Mars with two moons, Deimos and Phobos, Earth with one moon; Venus, Mercury; and in central focus the sun blasting off another one of its now-common series of M- and X-class flares.

Midwest tornadoes, Eastern seaboard hurricanes, the earth drumming up weather changes

Such flares have increased in regularity in the last month, sparking speculation of their influence on Earth weather anomalies — an early (end October) New York City snowstorm, coming close on the heels of two hurricanes; anomalous tornadoes in the mid-West; summer rain in California instead of forest fires; unusually warm autumn temperatures in Scotland; and the current concern: the freak sub-zero storm expected this week to hit Alaska.

Freak storm bearing down on Alaska

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them… will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” Thomas Jefferson

It is no mere coincidence that the world’s youth have chosen this time to rise up as one voice.

Europeans have a long history of revolution, but suppression by guillotine, inquisition, execution and death by firing squad are assumed (by Europeans) to be a thing of the past. British and Continental representatives are — as an international bloc — quite shocked by the continuing dramatic methods still considered legal means to accomplish suppression in crowds, peace marches and street assembly by US law enforcement agencies. For international travelers, the concept of travel to the United States is no longer a pleasure because of the horrendous lack of respect and brusque treatment of ‘aliens’ experienced at the hands of U.S. air terminal immigration and customs agencies.

But times they are a-changin’ — as the ’sixties song went. Forty years on, the same suppression and domination by an unreasoning Establishment, accustomed to getting its own way, may not be tolerated any more. November is a difficult month to camp out and still feel the spark of belief in one’s cause. David Crosby may be right, that Europe feels America is finally waking up. He and Graham Nash were astounded by group support provided by passers-by, relief agencies, clothing donors and food manufacturers. As ‘baby boomers’ they were particularly drawn by the number of oldies camped out alongside young people a quarter their age. “The Park is just the spark” may indeed be a prescient description of what is to come. Their stance was cheered at all their European venues.

11:11:11 has provided a trigger for many spiritual groups worldwide. There are major ‘alternative’ initiatives in the U.S. and in virtual chatrooms on the Internet, which speak of this special time as a time to renew commitment to ascending together as one (human) species.

One group in particular provides another opportunity to Fire the Grid, which fired a world initiative in 2007. Others feel that perhaps lightworkers with several years’ experience of consciousness-raising, will become more outspoken and help lead others to express their own desire for group evolution of consciousness. As might be expected, there have been multiple and varied channelings and medium-based pronouncements from the Ancestors of Indigenous tribes, Ascended Masters, Archangels and Star Elders.

Fire the Grid

Fire-the-Grid's Divinity Code: embedded memory sent to trigger human DNA into ascension

The following is the message brought by Fire-the-Grid. It is suggested as a gentle way of introducing one’s psyche to communion with All-that-Is, through group meditation and knowing that others are similarly focused; scheduled for 11 minutes past eleven on 11:11:11. (At 11:11GMT on 11:11:11, Britain holds one minute’s silence; time equivalent is 03:11 PST, but 11:11 local in all time zones will work). It should create a world wave.

The Meditation:

Bring to the experience an open heart and a willingness to remember who you are. This music and image are exactly what I saw in the directions when I was told to share it with humanity.

To engage fully with the experience please make yourself comfortable. Remove all the daily stress from your mind and open your heart to truth. Then in knowing that you are entitled, connect to your Divine Source in any manner you believe in, feel grounded and safe. Ensure you are connected to the Highest Light for the highest purpose and that it be the best for all. You must feel safe and comfortable in order to open human consciousness to the truth. Remember who you are for ten minutes and charge your day with the beauty of knowing it.
Fire the Grid 11:11:11

Fire the Grid has been encouraging human consciousness quietly along its ascension path since the first Fire-the-Grid world meditation in 2007. Musicians Bradfield, Anael and empath Shelley Yates have taken their roles seriously in transmitting instructions to those who wish to participate, to drive the 11:11:11 event with a supreme force. It is the plan that at least half the world will participate and feel the benefits of ten/eleven minutes of silence and communion with Spirit. Others may choose to meditate for one full hour.

Shelley Yates says:
“Who are these great Beings of Light? They wish for us to know them as just that, Beings of Light. They are the essence of all life in our universe, the essence of the great prophets, angels and other Beings that have come to earth with messages of hope for a better future. In fact they are the essence of you and me. For within us we are these great Beings of Light. We too are of the same energy as these beautiful Beings and we hold tremendous power, the power to change ourselves and our world. Collectively, we hold the power to manifest what we need and desire to create a world of joy and abundance for us all. We have been learning about this through various forms over the past ten years. Now is the time to unite ourselves to manifest with intention, not just for ourselves but for the collective whole of this planet.”

Humanity is entering a new time which it has not experienced in living memory. Transition has been happening and will continue to happen during the few years ahead. FTG’s great Beings of Light wish to assist with that transition. Not unlike a parent holding the hand of a child while it endeavors something new, these Beings wish to hold Humanity’s hand as we transition into what we have always known in our hearts to be true.

“They wish to hold our hands as we become our greatest selves.”

There will be other opportunities as we move into 2012, but the Eleven Eleven gateway is a gift both for first-time meditators and for old hands. Ten minutes out of your day will do you absolutely no harm.

And it could bring about a miraculous change in our collective spirit which will do us all a great deal of good.
