Believing is Seeing
by Owen Waters
Today’s massive, ongoing Shift in consciousness is a shift from intellectual awareness
to holistic awareness.
Intellectual awareness is a function of the solar plexus chakra, where mental ability
is developed in a linear direction. Examples of linear thought include the performing of arithmetic and the operating of machinery.
In this mode of consciousness, people have learned to develop a rigid discipline of “seeing is believing” in order
to find what works and what doesn’t.
With holistic awareness, the heart chakra is developed, allowing issues of separation
to be resolved and integrated. Holistic awareness means that mind, body & spirit are seen as closely related facets of
the human being. This heart-centered awareness is a viewpoint of integration or wholeness which heals the fears and discords
that come with solar plexus consciousness.
There is a paradox with moving from linear intellect to heart-centered consciousness.
While the intellectual phase of consciousness may say that “Seeing is believing,” the holistic phase requires
quite the reverse. In holistic consciousness, opposites are often both true as they are seen as opposite sides of the same
coin or as polar opposites of the same issue.
Awareness that is limited to the intellect is subject to issues of separation; of us versus
them, of struggling for resources that are perceived as scarce instead of solving the problem of their scarcity. Holistic
awareness includes the idea that consciousness creates realities, that something must be created in consciousness –
“believed” – before they can become a reality.
So, in holistic consciousness, “Believing is seeing” becomes a statement of
truth, even though it is the opposite of “Seeing is believing.” Instead, it adds the understanding that reality
is created by consciousness. We are not merely observers of what is. We create what is.
Traditionally, people have entered a realm of holistic, heart-centered awareness when
they pass on from this life. In the afterlife, their task is to heal the fears and hates of their physical lives and transform
them into love and forgiveness, thus integrating themselves with others, rather than feeling separate from them.
Today, due to The Shift, more and more people are embracing holistic, heart-centered consciousness
while still alive in physical bodies. As the heart is also the gateway to spiritual consciousness, this global movement is
producing a revolution in spiritual unfoldment.
Spiritual consciousness is flowering in the global consciousness of humanity as The Shift
progresses. Today’s pioneers in consciousness are people just like yourself. They are exploring the new territory of
unconditional love and experiencing a reunion with their own inner, spiritual connections.
The higher aspect of heart-centered consciousness is fully connected to your inner being,
or soul. Your inner being is fully connected to the consciousness of the universe and to that which created the universe.
Infinite Being is within each of us. We are Infinite Being.
The daily focus that we apply to our five senses and their connection to the outside world
is just like performing a part in a play. We act out the part of being us, along the general theme of the type of events that
we planned for this life. We ride along through the journey of this life, gaining the type of experiences that we planned
When you open up to your heart, and through that, reconnect to your own spiritual source,
then you have become a part of the very future of humanity.
The Shift is heading towards a world where unconditional love and acceptance is normal,
where strife is relegated to the distant past, where the true potential of human beings can express itself in the daily joy
of being all that you are.
