What You See Is What You Get
"Earth Consciousness is our default starting point for understanding life because it’s based on what is around us. Earth Consciousness is energized by the five senses including looking for proof, validation, data, stimuli, what is visible, and what is verifiable.
Earth Consciousness is everything we see, touch, hear, taste, and smell, which is why it is the most dominant energy in our lives. From science and medicine, to nature and social media, Earth Consciousness is the basis for our existence as human beings, including the croissants we eat, the wine we drink, and the high heels we flaunt. It is density, form, all materials and music and perfumes and paddle boards and landmasses. Look around your surroundings now and there are probably numerous examples of Earth Consciousness everywhere. And by the way, Earth Consciousness is one of the JOYS of being alive in a physical body!
However, when the energy of Earth Consciousness becomes out of balance, there is an overemphasis on power, proof, validation, stimuli, and an excessive Ego-Mind drive. This can show up as extreme power through domination and submissive roles; obsession with fame and celebrity; sensationalism, materialism and accumulation of possessions; extreme emotional reactions; competition and war; unconscious judgments; polarity and duality; hierarchy, status, rank, and external authorities. And the list goes on.
There are great gifts and opportunities with Earth Consciousness, too. Ultimately, we learn what we value in our surroundings, relationships, and daily needs. What job brings you joy? Where do you want to live and spend your days? What food choices are best for you? How do you want to invest your time? What relationships do you want in your life that support, respect, and love you? Essentially, what reality are you creating for yourself on the planet?"
