There are many, many hidden patterns, subconscious beliefs, undercurrents and themes in our collective consciousness that point to the potential actual existence of things generally assigned to the realm of the unknown.
Here are a few notions that seem to point to something more than, or deeper than, we are aware of with our 5 senses:
1. God Lives in the Sky
Have you ever noticed that when most of us think of God, we look up to the sky? I know I do. I mean, sure, we all kinda know that God isn’t a man who lives in the sky, but we do tend to look up. Art thoughout the ages has shown God and heaven as represented above. Could this general theme be paying tribute to the idea that aliens, or gods from other worlds, visited earth? Why else does God live “up there?”
2. Faeries, Humans, other Realms and the Space-Time Continuum
I recently read a book called “Some Kind of Fairy Tale” by Graham Joyce. The story is a modern take on the ancient myth of faeries taking humans to their realm. The human is gone from earth life for many years, but in the fairy realm this amounts to just a few days. A classic version of this is the ballad of True Thomas and the Queen of Elfland (click here to read it). Similar themes appear in C.S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia.” Yes, these are all stories. But isn’t it interesting that they all have a common theme of space and time not being quite as we imagined, and of other realms existing behind the veil? Where did that come from?
3. Yoda, Star Wars, and the Jedi Mindset
How is it that Yoda is soooo realistic? Yes, he is a fictional character. But I, and many people I’ve spoken with, totally feel like he’s real. In fact, I use his image for my Spirit Guides workshop, because he seems like he’d be the most kick-ass guide. Don’t you think? So many people all over the world connect with Yoda and the Jedis in a sort of “Yes, this is IT!” collective acknowledgement, that I wonder if George Lucas created, or rather, channelled, this info. I know this sounds crazy, but if you think about it, the universe is larger than we can even imagine. We don’t really even KNOW what other worlds exist on other planets, so…why not?
4. Comic Books and the SuperHero Phenomenon
So many people connect with the concept of Superheroes that it’s not even funny. Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Iron Man, the X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Wonder Woman…the franchises behind these characters have grossed trillions of dollars worldwide. We love superheroes. We can’t get enough of them. We want to be them. We can be them, to a certain extent, if we utilize more of our brain power (that’s why I keep saying we’re all psychic – we are all capable of knowing more, being more, healing ourselves, raising our consciousness, becoming mega-awesome). This fascination with Superheroes, people with extraordinary powers who end up saving the world, points to a deeper truth: that perhaps it really is possible.
I know this is a short list – and I’d love to hear from you. What additional widely accepted subconscious beliefs, stories, or myths can you think of that point to something we’re not consciously aware of?
