Considering how much stuff bombards our senses every day—information, stimuli, debate, conflict, the threat of harm, human rights violations, wireless radiation and growing digital dominance—it’s a miracle we can function at all. While we juggle jobs, home, health, relationships, children and self-care, striving to be decent human beings in a world of shifting shady agendas, we forget that we ourselves are living, breathing miracles. Yet our resourcefulness shows us just how amazing we are, how resilient and how loving we are—lovers of life, even if that love gets lost in the stress of fast-paced living or the drama and trauma of a society derailed.
The push for digital control
Losing touch with our loving nature costs us our humanity, making us susceptible to being manipulated, controlled or robotized. As governments push for global digital ID, we stand to lose control of all aspects of our lives. Even our body metrics, health, sex lives, food, relationships, finances, choices, activities and emotions may be monitored and potentially controlled. With our humanity challenged in such unprecedented ways, with many world leaders behaving inhumanely towards the citizens they pledged to represent and protect, we must empower ourselves in unprecedented ways, and deepen our humanity. If we descend to their level, vilifying and condemning them, we give more power to those base qualities, losing more of our humanity in the process. We must instead hold tight to our humanness if we want humanity to win.We can do this by returning to the fundamentals of life, proactively choosing how to spend our time and energy, rather than reacting to circumstances. Instead of being anxious or distracted, we can cultivate focus and presence, while choosing to embody only those beliefs that serve us, so we can regain a sense of creative purpose in moving forward. This also helps us to heal any trauma, while investing in healthy, loving emotions that keep us connected to what matters most.
Demonstrating our humanity and transforming our negative beliefs changes our electromagnetic field, which affects what we transmit to—and receive from—the world. It has a very real impact on our circumstances. That is the part of being human that many of us fail to understand, simply because we don’t know how to activate those parts of us… or that they exist at all.
If we are unaware of the power we have inside, we won’t see how we could make a meaningful difference or take charge of our lives. We are also less likely to take responsibility for our choices, health and circumstances, or to see that our outlook, feelings and behaviours either reinforce our dysfunction or contribute to a better world. To be empowered, we must understand what being fully human means—how our energy, our electrical field, our words, thoughts, emotions, vision, intentions, behaviours, consciousness and creatorship literally shape our reality. When we understand how that works, we can regain control over our lives, restore our faith in ourselves, experience the joy of emotional freedom, and love the excitement of creatively orchestrating our lives.Transhumanism is no match for how fabulous that feels.
Being fully human is our superpower.
(Why do you think the powers-that-be are trying to dehumanize us?)
If we are verbally gagged and nanochip-tagged, wirelessly tracked and controlled, subsumed by a transhumanist agenda, where does that leave us? How much humanity, if any, will we have left?The following seven human faculties are the antidote to dehumanization—and the antithesis of the inhuman qualities demonstrated by those seeking to exploit us.
- Feel -
As sentient beings, we are meant to feel and to process life through feeling. Processing things is how we learn and grow. It is also how we heal, if we can allow ourselves to dwell in whatever painful emotions might be asking to be dissolved. If we do things without feeling, it’s usually because we have flat-lined, having been traumatized or conditioned to react a certain way. Or we may feel powerless and sink into denial or defeat. To feel, we must slow down and sit quietly with ourselves to allow any suppressed or sidelined emotions to be felt. We must also take time to be with loved ones, sharing our feelings and allowing them to take us where we might not otherwise go, if we were stuck in our heads rather than operating from our hearts. Our hearts have tremendous intelligence and wisdom that transcend logical analysis or facts, and they have the power to effect positive change. Coming home to our hearts is what we need most.
- Love -
Seems obvious, doesn’t it? Yet healthy loving is not something we are necessarily taught, and we may end up with a distorted sense of what love is, due to neediness, poor boundaries or an incomplete understanding of how to truly love ourselves, first and foremost. As with all human characteristics, we ideally start with the self and extend outwards from there, rather than focusing on the world out there and trying to gain acceptance or approval—sometimes even permission to exist—from others. Consider how relevant that might be now, with all the restrictions on our human rights. Yet no one can stop us from loving. And loving ourselves and others is a powerful antidote to any hatred or condemnation we might see around us, as well as countering any self-rejection or self-loathing we might feel inside. If we can remain loving, despite whatever misguided, unloving, inhuman behaviours we witness, we will have retained an essential piece of our humanity. We will also have chosen to not be a reaction to someone else (which gives them power over us), but to instead take responsibility for—and full ownership of—our own emotions.
- Laugh -
Animals don’t usually have a sense of humour (although Gary Larson might disagree). Humour is a distinctly human characteristic—and thank goodness we can laugh! Laughter lightens our whole being, energizing the body and reminding us that life is meant to be enjoyed. We tend to take ourselves very seriously, especially if we are fearful or stressed. And if we are socialized to live in fear, we need laughter even more. We are designed to laugh, and it’s quite amazing what happens in our bodies when we do. Look at the line-up of benefits: laughing burns calories, lowers blood pressure, lifts your mood, makes you more creative, boosts your immune system, reduces your stress, generates ideas, makes everything seem more doable, and makes other people laugh, too! Think about the power of that: just sharing laughter on social media can go viral in minutes, and smiling at someone almost always makes them smile in return. Quite simply, a life with laughter is a whole lot more fun. It’s one of the most powerful, totally free ways to connect with others, generate intimacy and lighten up, while lighting up those around us.
Symptoms of laughter-deficiency: sad face, frowning (check mirror), sighing, heavy heart, fatigue, listlessness, foot-dragging and regular episodes of I-can’t-be-bothered.
- Learn -
It is in our nature to grow and evolve—to seek understanding, to expand our minds and to explore our potential. To do that, we must learn new ways of perceiving, thinking and being. When we learn new things, we generate new neural pathways in our brains. Every time we develop a new habit, we create new neural networks to support those new ways of behaving, thinking or moving. We are dynamic, constantly in motion, inside and out, and change is inevitable. Learning enables us to successfully adapt to change or proactively seek change so we can orchestrate our lives. If we have been conditioned to feel insecure or self-doubting, however, our lives may be more about survival and coping than expansive, dynamic adventure.
Yet knowledge is power, and learning how our bodies and minds work, how to generate health, how to create healthy boundaries, how to master our thoughts and emotions, and how to create our ideal reality is the most empowering kind of learning—and living—we can do.
- Nurture with nature -
Like all forms of life, our bodies have a positive and negative charge that promotes the flow of healthy energy. Connecting to the earth enables us to not only discharge a build-up of unhealthy radiation, but also receive electrons from beneath while being charged with protons from above. We forget that we are solar-powered beings. When the sun hits the earth, it releases electrons that are used by the body to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP)—the primary energy carrier for all living organisms on Earth. Mitochondria serve as the batteries for this energy, powering various cellular functions and the body as a whole. Because mitochondria generate around 90% of all ATP produced in our body, they are known as the powerhouse of the cell.
If we don’t get enough of our energy from the sun, we must get more of it from our food. The less connected we are to earth and sun, the more food we must eat to make ATP. A lack of natural sunshine and earthing (putting our bare feet on the positively charged earth) can therefore lead to weight gain, as well as cellular damage that accelerates aging. Daily earthing, and getting as much full-body exposure to the sun as possible, boosts our health on many levels, while reducing inflammation. This is why we usually feel better on a warm, sun-kissed beach, wearing little and grounding ourselves naturally through our bare feet on the sand. Our bodies are designed to operate and thrive with sunshine, exercise, being in nature, earthing and natural nutrition. We must return to those fundamentals if we want to retain our natural immunity, health, balance and inner peace.
- Gear down and get present -
Only when we are mentally and emotionally present can we make conscious wise choices. Otherwise, we are reacting, not responding—and reactions are often founded on fear, old anger or a need for acceptance, approval or belonging. One of the main ways we keep ourselves distracted from our own problems or pain (and comforted or entertained so we feel a little better) is through our electronic gadgets. Since our dependence on wireless devices has been so cleverly cultivated by the wireless telecom industry (which has also led us to believe that such devices are safe, fun and essential), we may find it hard to wean ourselves off them or (gasp!) give them up altogether.
Yet disconnecting from them enables us to reconnect with our deeper selves, streamline our brains, lower our stress, greatly improve our health and reduce our multi-tasking, bringing rewards that we may have forgotten existed. Try gearing down and getting present, and see where that takes you. You can’t anticipate, analyse or justify how that might feel until you bring yourself back into the present moment and experience what it means to be fully conscious.
- Create, play, celebrate -
These three tend to feed each other, and a deficit in one can diminish the other two. If our lives feel empty or we sense something missing, we are probably not being creative or playful enough—in our relationships, career, downtime, our thinking and/or our conversations. If we are not creating, we are merely consuming, which means we’re not growing. And if we’re not growing in some meaningful way, we’re unlikely to find fulfillment. We are not just creative beings, capable of inventing and devising all kinds of wondrous, innovative things. We are creators, with the capacity to create our own reality. And that creatorship is a unique human quality that feeds the soul, excites the mind and impassions the heart. If we dwell on survival strategies, negative scenarios and crisis management, we are reacting, not creating.
We must engage our creative minds, feed a vision of the kind of world we want, and aim for higher things. It’s not just about making something of ourselves (as part of our purpose and responsibility on this amazing planet). It’s about celebrating and loving who we are and being playful with the process of self-discovery, engaging our limitless imagination, expanding our minds, testing our brainpower, exploring ideas, embracing challenges, pondering tough questions, and experiencing the magic of finding creative solutions, beyond our own perceived limits, into the realm of dynamic evolution, fulfillment and fun.
These are things that robots will never be able to do (and if we continue down the path of transhumanism, we may no longer be able to do them, either). Robots may be able to produce the sound of laughter, but they won’t be able to share your jokes; they don’t know how to have fun. They may be able to put their mechanical arms around you, but you won’t feel their heart, and you won’t feel the warm fuzzies that real human hugs and hearts can give you. And they may make the sound of breathing, but they will never breathe in life, smell the roses or hold their breath when anticipating a surprise. Compassion and empathy are other key qualities that robotic devices cannot express. Only real humans can do all these things, the way humans are meant to do them.
In trying to get robots to become more human,
and to humanize artificial intelligence,
we are missing the whole point of our existence.
The tragic irony is that many of us have failed to fully activate our own humanity and are, instead, trying to get machines to fulfill many of our functions—to be human by proxy—while we ourselves become increasingly dehumanized and disconnected from our hearts and souls.
Technology has taken us there… and we said yes to it. Not only yes, but YES, PLEASE! Give me something I can depend on, something that makes me feel safe, connected, important, part of a tribe. Give me comfort, distraction and non-stop entertainment. Humans might let me down, but my phone never will. My own body might let me down, but my phone is always there for me. My partner/friends/family may not support/care for me, but there will always be my phone!
Our bodies, brains and hearts are being increasingly irradiated as totalitarian control moves towards a full digital takeover of our precious human faculties. Are you signing up for that?
In trying to get robots to become more human, and to humanize artificial intelligence, we are missing the whole point of our existence.
We have all the answers to address what’s going on. Our humanness is the answer. Taking charge of our health, mastering our minds and having faith in ourselves… these are the true antidotes to whatever pathogens or pathological entity might threaten our mental, physical and spiritual integrity.
We are being challenged to tap into our own magic, to master our minds so we can change our reality and create the kind of life and love we seek. There is huge power in being fully human, but we can only experience it when we fully embody it.
Learning how to be fully human is your life’s journey. And the destination is YOU.
Be human. It’s your superpower. Don’t let anyone ever take that away from you.
