Our lives are constantly changing, and no one is spared. In order to identify and process our own feelings of loss and grief, it is urging us to let go of what was before. Essentially, an old paradigm is being dismantled in favour of a new one that can only be successfully navigated by those who have learned to do so.
A period of recovery will follow the storm’s devastation. By preparing ourselves for the future, we can find renewed hope and a sense of purpose.
The old paradigm’s failures are on full display during this time of grief and death. No matter how difficult it may be, if we want to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past, we must first admit our faults.
During this time of global death and rebirth, there are seed forms of new ways of living that can aid in the creation of a society that benefits everyone. As a society, we are making the transition from a three-dimensional, linear paradigm to a non-linear, multi-dimensional paradigm.
Because of the limitations of our current navigation system, we can embrace the possibilities of a more advanced level of consciousness to guide us forward. Let me offer you a way to navigate the new multidimensional paradigm and a practical road map for raising our perceptions so that we can better support ourselves as this new paradigm unfolds.
The old paradigm’s navigational system
It is easy to see how the duality-based paradigm guided the world’s major events over the past three decades:
There is a 1.
It’s not uncommon for problems to be labelled as such by leaders, the media, or both. You never know what you’re going to get. Either way, the focus shifts to dealing with problems on a surface level while ignoring more systemic ones. Ignoring other issues while labelling some as problems was driven by egotism, shortsightedness, and profiteering.
Secondly, the response
Because it resonates at the same level of consciousness as the ego’s labelling of a problem, the egoic response is triggered in others at the same level of consciousness. Most of us have felt the effects of these emotions in our daily lives, from fear and anger to blame and shame. Humans’ ego survival responses are triggered by these feelings, which narrows their focus to black-and-white dichotomous thinking and prevents creativity. There are times when the problem is so bad that there is no evidence to back it up, and this only serves to heighten public reactivity.
a third option
A’solution,’ however, is only a smoke screen for more sinister agendas of power and control once people are whipped into a frenzy of fear and reaction and blinded to alternatives by their basic survival instincts. As a result, fear-based egos are sold a superficial solution that fails to address the root problems. Because they don’t go beyond the ego’s instinct for survival, such solutions are doomed to failure. They only serve to prolong the problem-reaction-solution cycle.
In this crisis, we have the opportunity to step out of the ashes of a limited paradigm and embrace higher perspectives in order to create more equitable processes for our world. This is a gift.
The new paradigm’s wayfinding system
Rather than focusing solely on the egoic level of survival, the emerging new paradigm takes into account consciousness at all levels, not just the most basic. If we want to deal with problems effectively, we must rise above the level of consciousness where the problem originated. More than a century ago, Albert Einstein told us the same thing.
Higher levels of awareness allow for a broader range of options and more informed decision-making. There are three concepts that I believe will help you navigate a new paradigm more effectively: awareness, neutralisation, and discernment. These three concepts transcend the old problem-reaction-solution paradigm.
Symbolizing an inclusive, multi-dimensional approach to problem solving, the acronym AND incorporates these three concepts. A multidimensional universe where this and that coexist with countless other possibilities is the reality we inhabit; it’s not a binary world of either/or. These higher navigational skills are essential for us to succeed in this emerging paradigm:
