Have you noticed that there is a mass awakening going around the globe? Millions are waking up to the fact that there is so much more to them than just a body and a brain. It’s an interesting time to be alive for sure. If you are going through your own spiritual awakening, then you have most likely heard of the phrase “Christ Consciousness.”
What is this mysterious power that allows those who possess it to feed multitudes, walk on water, heal the sick, raise the dead, defy the natural elements, experience unbelievable euphoric joy and uncover the secrets of people’s hearts? Is there such a power, and if so, how can one attain it?
I can assure you that there is such a power, and it can be yours for the taking.
There are many interpretations of what this means, so for the sake of this article, we are going to go back to the original source of where this term came from. Jesus Christ, who embodied Christ Consciousness.
You might be asking yourself
What exactly is Christ Consciousness?
How can it help me?
And most importantly...
How do I attain it?
What is Christ Consciousness?
Simply put, Christ Consciousness is the highest elevation of spiritual enlightenment possible. Early mystics understood this and made it their sole passion to live in this state. As one famous mystic, the Apostle Paul said, “to live is Christ, to die is gain.” So what exactly is Christ?
We are told that “Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.”
Jesus himself pointed out very clearly that God is not a man in the sky, but a spirit, an invisible Infinite Intelligence that is All and in All. A Supreme Cosmic Consciousness that doesn’t just possess love, but is love. This Consciousness knows everything, sees everything, and is everywhere and in every person. Without this Presence, reality as we know it would collapse and cease to exist. This Consciousness which Jesus called the Father, is the Source of all. Of you, me, every element, every life form, everything we can see and even the things that we can’t see.
We are told though that without Christ, nothing would be made, and everything that is made, is made through Christ. This makes perfect sense in the light of the phrase, “Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.”
Christ always existed, however the physical body of Jesus hasn’t. When the person of Jesus of Nazareth was born, he was fully conscious of the fact that the Divine lived in him, and he never broke conscious connection with the Source - ever. Some have written that he somehow attained it, or grew into it, but if you read the Scriptures surrounding Jesus, this is simply not so. He was born with it. He never lost it, and he never awakened to it. He embodied Christ Consciousness from conception according to the ancient texts. In essence he was the Christ - the visible image of the invisible God. He told his early followers that if they had seen him, they had seen the Father. In other words, he was so connected with the Source in the spiritual dimension, that you couldn’t tell where one left off and the other started. They were and are one in the truest sense of the word.
So how can this help me?
As we travel through this life, hard times will come. It’s simply part of this existence. Turning within to the indwelling Presence can give you insight into how to handle difficult times. You don’t have to go it alone. You have access to the God Mind, the very Consciousness of Christ.
Quantum physics is making vast strides in the field of science. What once seemed like science fiction is now becoming the norm in our life. Thanks to quantum psychics we have many of the technologies we use today.
If you have studied quantum physics at all, sooner or later you are going to come across the term, “quantum entanglement.” Simply put, quantum entanglement is when something that was originally one is separated into two or more separate and distinct things, they will each interact with one another no matter how far apart they are.
For example, if an atom is split into two, whenever a scientist moves or rotates one of those atoms, the other will move at the exact same moment, even if that atom is miles away.
For those familiar with the teachings of Jesus and not just hearsay about him, Jesus was a man on a mission. A mission to overturn death for the human race, and awaken them to a whole new level of existence. The Christ kind. The Kainos man or woman, which simply means completely new. Never seen before. He was a man set on the intent to turn the tide and show us what one fully Christ Conscious could do.
But before I tell you that story let’s go forward in time from the time of Jesus to the year 1954. May 6 to be exact, to Oxford, England. A young man by the name of Roger Bannister did something that everyone at the time thought was physically impossible. He broke the four minute mile. It was thought that the human body would come undone by performing such a feat, but young Bannister proved them wrong by running a mile in 3 minutes 59.4 seconds.
What is interesting to note, is that he did not hold this record for long. People from all over the world started beating his time over and over again. How? Because a forerunner had gone before them and proved it could be done.
Jesus himself continually preached that those who believed, to those who awakened to the staggering fact, were actually one spirit with him. One consciousness, One Mind. That Mind is not the mind of a first century Jewish carpenter. No, the Mind he was talking about was the Mind of Christ. The Christ-Conscious Mind. The Mind that is the visible image of the invisible God, the Source.
This Mind knows all, as this Mind, this Consciousness is connected to the Infinite Intelligence. Whereas this Consciousness cannot be seen with the human eye, Christ can. Jesus’ mission was to show humanity what this invisible Intelligence was like. He embodied Christ, who is “the visible image of the Invisible God.”
The mystical writings of John talk about a forerunner. A person who overturned death before this whole reality was put into place. Before this world ever came into being, all of humanity was quantumly entangled with the Source. Each individual soul came from this One Life, aka God. We really are all one, no matter how separate we sometimes feel.
So How Can I Attain it?
Unlike almost every other teacher out there, Jesus taught that it can’t be attained. It can’t be worked for, because it’s a gift. It’s something you already have. You and Christ are one. It’s just a matter of accepting it. Of remaining conscious of that fact.
Just like Roger Bannister breaking the four minute mile, which paved the way for others to do the same, so the Christ in Jesus paved the way for us. Overturning physical death, and the ego’s stubborn cry that “we are separate from God.” The ego likes to work, work, work for enlightenment. To be good enough, do good enough. Pray, chant, meditate, whatever the ego does to try and earn connection with the Divine. The Christ is in Jesus says. It’s done. You are good enough, because you are one with God in Christ. Whatever he did, we can do. Jesus actually said greater things we could do!
We are forever quantumly entangled with Christ. We are one.
All the things that the Christ in Jesus could do, so can we. It’s a gift. We just have to awaken to that. It’s not about the ego, that part of us that likes to stay separate from the Divine, it’s about awakening and becoming conscious of who we really are. We are one. We are a collective. We are the body of Christ.
It’s time to awaken to Christ Consciousness in YOU! The hope of glory!
