When it comes to seeking Truth on the internet, discernment is a never-ending process. I often use a simple guideline when it comes to discerning Alt-Media information.

There is no perfect formula for separating truth from deception. However using this guideline, you can determine if any information is in your best interest, for your own personal spiritual growth, or if the information is perhaps not in your best interest to absorb.

With the internet and mobile devices, we are bombarded with a tide of information every minute of every day. In a previous post, From Awakening to Transcendence, I wrote about the state of Alt-media and our cultural addiction to news, about the need to move beyond our “Awakening Shock Syndrome” into our personal and collective transformation process.

“Exposing the darkness is an incomplete cure for darkness. First you expose it, but then you must fill the vacuum with Light. Exposing the darkness without adding any Light is just providing publicity for the darkness, especially if your audience is made up of morally complacent news junkies. They just want their fix. They want that adrenaline rush. The hangover leads to stress which needs relief, so they seek another hit, hoping for a different result.” (From Awakening to Transcendence)

To curb our news addiction, to become happier, healthier, focused beings, we need to use discernment in what we feed our minds, just as we use discernment in what types of food we feed our bodies. When it comes to junk food and junk news, we often need to exercise restraint.

Junk news is not fake news. It likely includes a great deal of truth in the sugar-coating, yet the core may hold a parasitic agenda of fear, victimhood, and duality consciousness. It is thus nutritionally worthless for our personal growth and empowerment. How much junk news do we consume every day?

News is irrelevant. Out of the approximately 10,000 news stories you have read in the last 12 months, name one that – because you consumed it – allowed you to make a better decision about a serious matter affecting your life, your career or your business. The point is: the consumption of news is irrelevant to you. But people find it very difficult to recognise what’s relevant. It’s much easier to recognise what’s new. (theGuardian.com)

The irony of a mainstream media outlet like the Guardian informing us that news is irrelevant is indeed rich. Yet there is science behind the story. Information overload, particularly a constant barrage of negative stressful information may have a detrimental effect on 0ur health, a draining effect upon us.

News is toxic to your body. It constantly triggers the limbic system. Panicky stories spur the release of cascades of glucocorticoid (cortisol). This deregulates your immune system and inhibits the release of growth hormones. In other words, your body finds itself in a state of chronic stress.  (theGuardian.com)


This guideline for discernment is elegantly simple:

DOES THE INFORMATION EMPOWER YOU, OR DOES IT DRAIN YOU?

To use this guideline you need to step beyond your intellect and your feelings.

You need to step into your gut. You need to step into your soul.

Both heart and mind can easily deceive us. How we intellectually view a piece of information is not always our best tool of discernment. Our ego loves to deceive us. Blinded by an intellectual prejudice or a personal blind spot, we can become trapped in our own personal echo chamber. The same goes for our feelings. What feels good to us is not always good for us. What feels unpleasant needs to be confronted for our personal growth.

It is usually better to trust our gut intuition. We take the question to our solar plexus chakra, the source of our personal power.

We need to ask ourselves, does the information ultimately empower us, uplift us, give us tools to claim our personal sovereignty, aid us in our personal growth, inspire us, propel us to improve our own life, aide others, or take creative action?

  • Does the information provide us with wisdom?
  • Does it liberate us?
  • Does it benefit our lives?
  • Does it make the world a better place?
  • Does it make us feel more connected to the universe?
  • Does it allow us to experience more love?
  • Does it open our hearts to others?
  • Does it feed us in a healthy productive way?

 

Or does the information ultimately drain us?

  • Does it lower our vibration?
  • Does it make us feel like victims?
  • Does it make excuses for why we cannot change or grow?
  • Does it make us fearful?
  • Does it make us complacent?
  • Does it mesmerize us with complexity and jargon?
  • Does it further imprison us in our inaction?
  • Does it make us feel strong negative emotions?
  • Does it make us feel more isolated and alone?
  • Does it fill us with darkness?
  • Does it close our hearts?
  • Does it feed us in an unhealthy, unproductive way?
  • And does it make us addicted to reading or viewing even more draining information?

This guideline does not advocate a “stay in the positive, ignore everything negative” approach. We need to be awake to and aware of the darkness in this world without becoming unhealthily preoccupied with it.  It is far better to “strive for what is positive, accept and overcome what is negative.”

I have spoken to others along with my own personal experience of discovering that life as we know it or have been taught to understand it has been a huge ball of deception. What is interesting is the depth of that deception.

Let me first say that the deception is a truth until we learn otherwise as these deceptions have been the foundation upon which our lives and the lives of ancestors have played out. Without these deceptions much of the process of human life would have played out quite differently.

Yet there is no need to regret not knowing those things which you did not know for perhaps had you known you would have missed out on much of the necessary experiences.

However the question is, just how deep does the deception go and just how much of what we believe are we willing to give up?

These are important questions to look at. We are dealing with layers of deception. Not only are we dealing with layers of deception but most often people are not willing to give up falsities for truths that may stir change in their lives.

Change means many things and for some change could create drastic changes in relationships, environment, income and lifestyle.Deceptions block many of the following and can completely rock ones world:

1)      Reality is an optical illusion

2)      Your beliefs about your spirituality are programmed constructed beliefs

3)      You don’t need gurus and guides to make decisions for you

4)      No divine Source or God needs to be worshiped

5)      There is no one coming to save you

6)      Life is a divine science

7)      Every thought you have determines every next moment in your reality

8)      No one is controlling your reality without your permission

9)      You are Source in physical form

10)  Control is the survival program

11)  Control of others is fear based

12)  Everything about the way you “operate” your life is based on the “survival program”

13)  You use titles to validate your identity and your existence

14)  Why must you be identified as a light worker when the objective is to operate in balance/ alignment?

15)  Although life is polarized its not about choosing one or the other, again it is about being center

16)  To choose sides is to struggle to stay away from the other

17)  It’s not about being good or bad it is about resonance

18)  We choose according to what we resonate with based on the vibration of our consciousness/awareness

19)  You are choosing every moment of your life

20)  You are choosing to be dumbed down

21)  The color of your skin does not define you it is simply part of the experience despite potential chemical differences

22)  It is possible to become reacquainted with a more expansive aspect of ones self once you let go of the limitations and fear of change

23)  Many of the Ascended Master you cling to have their own set of problems and the question is did they truly ascended
