33. (Eng.) Being aware of Oneness

As I wrote in my latest blogs, we are living in dark times, where the trick is to ‘keep your head cool and your heart warm’. Opening yourself to unity consciousness can help. When you succeed, you can stand more firmly on your feet. You won’t be blown away by any threatening breeze.

For me, it is also more difficult now to think clearly, to feel lucid and to find words for my insights. That is, in this second half of 2020, because of the heaviness in the atmosphere. No one can escape it. An astrological interpretation I could offer for this:

Currently, Saturn, Pluto and Mars are still giving space to unimaginably distressing energies that are influencing mankind and the developments on Earth. Considering the positions of these planets, it is advisable to be (even) more conscious in life than in the past (See blog 31 and 32).

Let’s try to imagine what will come next, when 2021 begins. Saturn and Jupiter will (finally) have left the sign of Capricorn and entered the sign of Aquarius. This will make it easier to respect each other and be open to new, positive developments.

Try this by turning inwards – and not giving in to negative trends in mass consciousness. In this way you can keep (or get) in touch with the deeper layers of your personal existence. I concluded the previous blog with a reference to the planet Neptune which can help with this.

Neptune has been travelling through its own sign of Pisces since 2012 and this will continue until 2026. This is a long period of time, during which it will be easier to make contact with that large field of consciousness for which many names exist. Names that vary from those for a personified God to very abstract names. But what is most important here is not the name of this field, but the experience of it. Your eyes cannot see the oneness, but you can ‘perceive’ or ‘experience’ it.

There are two ways to look at ‘unity consciousness’.
In the first place, I think of mystics and others who once had a spiritual peak experience – so profound that it fundamentally changed their lives.

Secondly, it could be a space of consciousness for you, an experience of oneness to reach out to. Even if you are not that far yet, it is more than worthwhile to consider it as your foreland, a level to align with.

Another way to familiarize yourself with unity consciousness is to use your imagination to create a platform that you experience as ‘your oneness consciousness’. Do it in such a way that you experience joy and compassion for many others … from that platform you can look with more distance at what is happening on Earth, and thus also at what is happening in your environment.

This is especially effective when – in meditation or in prayer – you become aware of that field of unity. As soon as you enter there and sense what you are perceiving, you’ve taken the first step needed to experience that specific energy. It can take you further along your path. Your mind becomes calmer and feelings of love, gratitude and joy present themselves – and let’s not forget the added benefit of strengthening your immune system!

You may happen to make contact with the oneness consciousness – even if only a hint of it – and to experience which panoramas open up on what the future might bring. At the same time, you could tap into sources that provide you with the insights and energy that prepare you for that new world, so that you may undertake actions that resonate with your personal energy.

There is something that fills me with hope, namely that this is already happening: after this year’s events, so many people have been ‘waking up’. Large numbers of men and women are making different choices to reshape their lives — or they create something, an initiative, that is completely novel. While this may seem to occur independently, there are always personal processes underpinning these projects.

In everyday practice, unity consciousness turns out to be a point of reference. Over and over again, you realize that all people are essentially connected at the level of the quantum field, or of the ‘psychic internet’. The fact that Neptune is travelling through its own sign for a longer period of time certainly provides support in this matter.
