Heaven on Earth

I have a personal goal to create heaven here on earth for all of humanity. Big dreams I realize, but that’s just how I tend to role.

Heaven on earth has been talked about, dreamed about, prophesied about, and even fought about over the ages. I’m not professing any one thought or religious belief but I do enjoy making observations and developing my own understandings and viewpoints of this world. Today, I will share my thoughts on the internal and external shifts required to reach the enlightened state of heaven on earth.

I believe we are all divine. I believe we all hold the power within ourselves to restore balance in our own individual worlds and then collectively as a whole. Co-creating our world is a new age term but truthfully we have been operating on this system since the beginning of time. Maybe you remember the story:

…In the beginning there was light… God created the heavens and earth through thoughts… And with each new thought a new component was added such as stars, the sun, the earth and the moon…next came humans, plants, animals…[fast forward a bit]…then came humanities fall from grace…then we work to restore our original glory and obtain heaven on earth…we open up the seals to restore this balance…Then we all live in perfect harmony and the whole world will sing praises… Amen.

Because we are all micro components of the macro, I have another version of this tale as it relates to the Chakras. Chakras are energy centers that run vertically up your body and connect vibrationally to the universal power of all that is. These energy centers guide our development here on earth and correlate to our physical, emotional and spiritual growth. Those who have expanded their intuitive abilities are able to see, feel and balance the connection between each energy center and the energy of the universe.

The human body has seven primary chakras (or the seven seals) that are most critical for healing and strengthening your awareness while here on earth. The chakras start at the base of the pelvis and move up to the crown of your head and follow the colors of the rainbow. There are more chakras within your body, above and below. However, balancing the primary energy centers is a great starting point. It is within these energy centers that we have the ability to restore harmony to the body, mind and soul.

Now, allow me to tell you the story of creation and evolution in terms of the chakras. Imagine the Crown chakra located at the top of your head representing all that is. This energy centre is our connection to spirit and our all-knowing capacity to access full levels of enlightenment and divine grace (for arguments sake, let’s call this chakra Adam). Both men and women started out on earth with this chakra fully open and our connection to the divine fully operational. As we began to evolve, our focus shifted from being spiritually connected, to becoming more emotionally connected, and finally all the way down to being physically connected to this earth. During the golden ages of our past, all these chakras were opened and functional.

Then we started to disconnect from the divine and our focus become more about our physical reality only. Our physical reality and connection to this world are represented by the base chakra. The base chakra signifies our primary needs and our connection to mother earth (let’s call this one Eve). Although it may have been understood as our fall from grace, what it really represented was a very long process of becoming less and less connected to all that is. Typically what this looks like in terms of human development is the blocking out of our intuitive senses, becoming more and more ego driven and being primarily centred on our own survival.

Over time, humanity has definitely started to move back up the chakras into awareness. Basically, once our physical needs were met, we started focusing on our wants and desires of this world (represented by the sacral chakra and traditionally called the seat of the soul for quite some time now). From there we evolved to understanding how to manifest our desires and started co-creating our reality (this is represented by the Solar Plexus – the return of the son/sun). Heart based living comes next, and to me this chakra represents the new vibration we are moving into as we continue our ascent back to all that is. It’s the Age of Aquarius and within this heart centre, the message is to love yourself and to love all others as equals.

Now, here is the interesting thing. Although everyone is on their own path and their own chakra development – globally the entire universe is also beginning to shift in this upward trend. Furthermore, I believe we have reached the tipping point or critical mass change where at minimum 51% of humanity has moved their soul energy into the Solar Plexus and are at least at an unconscious level starting to co-create their own world. From here we will enter the state of perfect balance which resides within the heart and is the mid-point between this physical and spiritual world. Then as we bring all chakras into balance, we will start speaking our truth more often and following our soul desires instead of human fears. Next our sixth senses will fully open back up to full awareness and voila – heaven is back on earth. Kind of makes you feel like singing doesn’t it?!

I’d like to build the world a home and furnish it with love. Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves.

I’d like to teach the world to sing In perfect harmony. I’d like to hold it in my arms and keep it company.

I’d like to see the world for once all standing hand in hand. And hear them echo through the hills for peace throughout the land.

That’s the song I hear, let the world sing today. A song of peace that it goes on and never goes away.

Second round….

I’d like to build the world a home ;0
