With heart-powered consciousness comes
inspiration, love and creativity.
The pioneers within society - one in four adults - have already
shifted to heart-powered consciousness while the others are finding
their way and following suit as soon as they become ready.
The news media, meanwhile, appears to be under the impression that
people find fear entertaining or compelling. They believe that a
news story that engenders fear is exciting in that it grips the
imagination. In reality, people are working through their fears
rather than being held captive by them. When you have seen enough
news stories and moved on to the next stage of consciousness, then
you turn the news off and set yourself free from the stimulation of
Society, as a whole, works through stages of consciousness. These
stages, which were called memes by legendary social scientist Clare
Graves, are patterns of development in social behavior. He
discovered two tiers of memes and performed extensive research on
the first tier of six memes.
This basic tier of six memes reflects the progress of mankind from
the dark ages through modern times. In addition to this, today, the
second tier has emerged in enough people for the first two of its
memes to be identified.
Meme Keyword Attributes
1 Survival Basic, personal survival.
2 Safety Clans, superstitions.
3 Power Courage, survival of the fittest.
4 Truth Finding order and purpose in life.
5 Prosperity Achievement, striving to succeed.
6 Communitarian Community and caring.
7 Systemic Responsible freedom.
8 Holistic Global view, deep intuitive development.
In pre-medieval times, the predominant mindset in Europe was that of
meme number two, that of superstition and tight-knit clans. Then,
European civilization passed though the next two stages; tribal
conflict (meme three), and then the seeking of order through a
hierarchical, feudal system (meme four).
Three hundred years ago, social progress accelerated as meme number
five, that of individual empowerment, came into vogue. While the
engines of commerce and technology took three hundred years to
develop, it has only taken the last forty years for the sixth meme,
that of community and caring to appear and spread in the form of
today's `Cultural Creatives.'
In the 1990s in America, a study by Paul Ray and Sherry Anderson
revealed that a huge 26 percent of adults have made a comprehensive
shift in their worldview, values and way of life. These Cultural
Creatives are people who love nature, respect the Earth and are
deeply concerned about the environment. They like to develop close
relationships with each other, and to help and encourage other
people to develop their abilities. They care about personal and
spiritual development, and want more equality for women and all
This means that if you are searching for better quality of life,
less stress, better health, and a simpler lifestyle that includes
more spirituality, then you are one of a growing number of people
who have already become a part of the greatest social transformation
of all time.
In my book, "The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness," I
point out that these stages, or memes, correspond exactly to the
stages of consciousness in the human chakra system. For example, the
solar plexus chakra has two faces. The forward-facing solar plexus
chakra has the characteristic of searching for order and purpose in
life, just like meme number four. The backward-facing solar plexus
chakra resonates exactly one musical half-tone higher in frequency
and has the characteristic of striving to succeed in personal
achievement, just like meme number five.
"The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness" details my
research on how the twelve memes of social progress correlate
exactly with the twelve half-tones of the musical octave and also
with the twelve faces of the seven major chakras.
The Twelve Chakra Faces
Society, today, is working through its fears in its journey towards
heart-centered consciousness. This level of consciousness is
associated with meme number six, the receptive, sensitive, forward
face of the heart chakra.
Once people discover the freedom of heart-centered consciousness,
the next step is what Professor Clare Graves called "a momentous
leap" into the second tier of six memes. While the first tier of
memes is one of basic consciousness, the second tier is one of
spiritual awareness. By stepping from heart-centered consciousness
to heart-powered consciousness, each individual reaches meme number
seven, the first meme in that second, spiritual tier.
A world in transformation may seem chaotic at times because change
does cause turbulence. When an established pattern of consciousness
is disturbed by a rise in frequency, a choppy pattern appears, one
which is searching for a new form. At this time, personal and
societal discords can abound as old wounds arise seeking attention
and resolution. As the frequency of consciousness rises even more
towards the new level, the unsettled patterns morph into an entirely
new pattern, one which is even more complex and beautiful than the
one it replaces.
People reach heart-centered consciousness, the initial, meme six
stage of heart consciousness in their own time. Then they take that
next step into the spiritual tier of memes and experience the energy
and drive of meme seven's heart-powered consciousness.
With heart-powered consciousness comes the inspiration of a deeper
sense of intuition, the emotional rewards of unconditional love, and
a newfound level of inner creativity.
With inspiration, love and creativity, a new dimension of living is
born, one which can truly help to create a new and heart-powered
