Opening this thread for people who want to discuss, join and be part of the concept of a power of 8 group.

In phase shifts, because there's so much disequilibrium, one tiny alteration can change the entire outcome markedly. What this means is that each of us as individuals has it in our agency to further empower the light so that the future really will be so much better. Each of our small decisions makes a difference for the collective.

@coyote I feel like a kid in a candy store today. Yet another illuminating post that will make it to the Post Hall of Fame - the third time I am doing so this morning.

Your post also reminds me of something @vestralux wrote about the miraculous power of a small, cohesive group. By focusing merged intention on a single target, the collective consciousness creates a fast track to the miraculous with effects boomeranging back to the group. She was referring to the findings put out by Lynn McTaggert in The Power of Eight and the author has even put out instructional videos on YouTube on how to set up a a Power of Eight group.

Surely we can find 8 people in this forum to set up such a group or various such small groups?

I'm in - I'm nearly finished with The Power of Eight and would love to try her ideas with others interested.

Why thank you, Pikake. Yes, @vestralux has long been sharing wisdom here about how it only takes a small group of people to effect wholesale change. My guides have also been coming closer to me over the past few months, and they keep telling me that every small effort on my part is building up to something much greater. (And I'd be down for a Power of 8 group!)

I just thought of something to illustrate my original point about the interchange of energies: supermassive black holes also create quasars. So even exceptionally dark, seemingly inescapable forces  on the astrophysical level create some of the brightest objects in the universe.

I meant to include this link to a brief Power of Intention workbook that Lynne McTaggart shares online. So useful.

@vestralux Superb, thank you for the share, which will be sent to other group members. When I first leafed through it, I thought it would just be a few pages but the workbook is nearly as lengthy as a regular read. Something about that discovery  speaks to me about the timely significance of this ritual of intention right when the world is pivoting.

@frank your Parable of the PAC MAN is a fantastic and classic post 

I hope @jeanne-mayell will put on the Hall of fame board of posts we want to remember.  Actually, the one you wrote before about fear is as well.  Sometimes, when I read your posts I almost believe the wisdom of Yoda is speaking through you, just not in a Yoda like voice. To ponder much , you give us

@herodreams-  Thank you for your beautifully written post.  SO loving.  I hope this also goes into the Posts we want to remember area.

I have been touched by so many posts today.  A great deal of care and thought has gone into writing them.  

Thank you everyone.

@lovendures  Wow, thank you! "Yoda..." High praise indeed! 😊  In my mind I always imagine Obi Wan's voice:  "Use the Fooorce, Frank"   LOL 🤣

@pikake,

Coincidentally (not!) for the past few days I’ve been having the same thoughts as you about sustained group intention with meditation and prayer.  I had forgotten about the McTaggert Power of Eight post until you mentioned it.  I think that’s a great idea.

What piqued my interest is something that @vestralux addressed in a couple of earlier posts -- seeing the energetic intervention that he [the Mad King] has been getting from the fervent prayers of countless American evangelicals.  Their prayers for him are unceasing.  As vestralux so brilliantly described it, that’s part of the reason why some of these windows for the Mad King’s departure that many of us have predicted have come and gone. Until vestralux mentioned it, I hadn’t even considered the enormous power of the evangelical’s group channeled intentional prayer.  Up until that moment, I arrogantly dismissed them. 

In Dan Harris’ meditation book, “10% Happier,” while he was investigating religion and spirituality in America, Harris met a charismatic and well-known evangelical preacher, Ted Haggard.  Harris wrote the following about entering the enormous main room of Haggard’s church: 

at the center … was a huge, spinning globe. It was meant to be sort of mission control for human communication with God, outfitted with computers, and piping in news feeds from around the planet.  “We’re watching the whole world all the time for events that need to be prayed for,” he [Haggard] told me with earnest excitement.  Ted was what’s called a “prayer warrior” – someone who believes in the power of targeted, “intercessory” prayer to effect real-world changes.  “If there’s any indicator that there’s a problem, we notify hundreds of thousands of intercessors immediately”.   (Harris, Dan.  10% Happier, HarperCollins Publishers, 2014, p 33.)

These particular evangelicals might be terribly misguided when it comes to T**** (I’m being charitable), but they are certainly passionate, confident, faithful and unwavering in their mission.  That’s powerful stuff.  In the memorable words of Elwood from the “Blues Brothers” movie, these prayer warriors wholeheartedly believe “We’re on a mission from God.”

I must admit, when T got into office I knew it was going to bad, but NOT this bad.  Many are feeling sick, tired, fearful, and desperate.   Because some things haven't been going as we predicted or as we had hoped, we can lose faith.  In fact, sometimes I believe my intuitive gifts, and even the gifts of others in this community, can get in my way.  What I intuit, or predictions I may read here, can give me a lot of hope, especially if there are time frames involved.  So if a number of us predict that something is going to occur within a particular window of time, and that doesn’t happen, what does that say about our visions?  We might lose hope that things will ever change.  We may even feel foolish, thinking “how could I have been so wrong?”  But our faith should not be totally dependent upon what visions we sense, hear or see.  We should trust ourselves, but more importantly, we should trust our faith.  And I faithfully believe, in the words of @coyote, that “the light is the ascending force.”

I know that there is a higher power.  I’ve always known it.  I’ve always felt it.  I know that this power is there, patiently waiting for us to co-create something wonderful.  We have that power within us.  Can you imagine what can happen if we join forces in our intentions?

If not now, when?

@deetoo, I am relatively new to the forum but when I discovered it, I felt I had never left. There are so many brilliant empaths, visionaries and conscious thought leaders here, I would check in here several times a day (I still do) to see what was new. Several threads interested  me, one of them being the predictions about T. When some of them didn’t come to pass, I didn’t question the “effectiveness” of the visionary behind them, I did wonder what extraordinary forces were helping T. In the past few days, I have felt an air of despair echoed in some of the posts here while at the same time, there were many encouraging, hopeful ones. When I read the post by @vestralux about the evangelicals, everything fell into place and the dots connected to her earlier post on the Power of 8. 

If we, a community of light workers committed to being conscious and awake, are vulnerable to feelings of hopelessness, what about the broader population? 

Perhaps the Higher Power intends for us to no longer to stand alone as little points of light, but to join hands to become a blanket of light in line with the vision expressed by @baba. We don’t need to number in thousands of tens of thousands. We just need to be 8 (or many groups of 8) with very specific intentions. As you said if not now, when?

@coyote Re:The Power of Eight    Since I'm from the 'Nam Protest generation I'd like to share W/all of you something from later the next decade when our long acting protests finally brought that vile War to

it's end. In 1989, I believe, the wonderful meditation group, TM, and 100 members from a branch in Iowa decided to do a grand experiment in intention in an area where they weren't want to travel to prove or disprove the power of 'Intention' in something the materialists and doubters of Lightworkers couldn't so easily dismiss so they decided to focus on the stock market for just one session. They held their "Intention and Focus" and the stock market rose significantly. When they stopped the meditation and their focused 'Intention' the market went right back down, thus proving the ability of guided group work. I bring this up not only because of Vestralux"s wonderful post on the "Power of Eight" but because i happened to be on Joyann Reid's Twitter feed today when some not so nice person decided to attack her saying she had only a 100 viewers and his side {Fox} had thousands. Make that 101 for Miss Reid w/ the idiot viewing too. I had to weigh in and told him he must've flunked basic Math and Science for he didn't understand the power of "n" and exponential growth. I suggested he calculate 100 to the 10th power if he could etc. So I'm all in for the Power of Eight groups or any focused Energy Groups w/ Right  Intention!!! Namaste' Dhyanaji

There's a wonderful work that came out in 1997 by the late Torkom Saraydarian that I think you might appreciate as well as some of our other Lightworkers here in the Forum when doubt(s) start encroaching on your peaceful and sacred place: Battling Dark Forces ( A guide to psychic self-defense ) It is quite illuminating and a most helpful guide when those niggling negative thought bubbles pop up that prompt self-doubt,powerlessness, and helplessness. They only exist if "WE" allow them to. We energize and give life to our thoughts. We are the creative driving force behind it. Remember, " In the Beginning Was The Word "  Namaste'

Any individual, and certainly any collective, that is able to sustain a willful, clear, emphatic, and dedicated intention will produce causative effects in our universe. We're co-creators, after all. I have never believed that T has been buoyed and protected by such prayers (allowing him to do considerably more harm at every turn), because a Higher Being or beings answered those prayers. The ones fervently praying them manifest their own realities, which is a thing many of them know very well. T included.

That said, and as many of you know, I believe that diabolical darkness does exist as a force in our universe, and that it frequently has both personality and intelligence. I refused to believe this for over twenty years in defiance of my evangelical upbringing. Suffice it to say that very real interactions with these energies have lately changed my mind. It isn't singular in nature, and much of it appears to be human-created in the first place. But whatever the case, if a preacher stands before a congregation in a sacred place and repeatedly invokes the name they have given to that force, they are inviting it in—consciously or otherwise, makes no difference. This is occult wisdom 101 and it gives "hellfire and brimstone preacher" new meaning.

The problem we face is that these are the very same sorts of congregations and religious leaders that are praying daily for T's victory, not because they are inherently evil, but because, from the very beginning, they have repeatedly invoked and invited evil in. So there is also the matter of Who or What is supporting their will and influencing their intentions and actions. 

My understanding of this force and the dynamics here aren't as black and white as this post might suggest because ultimately, I believe in a non-dual, unitive consciousness pervading all things. Nevertheless, we find ourselves here in the 3rd dimension, where stuff gets a little crazy sometimes. 😉

I think he keeps getting away with things because, on a purely physical level, he has found people who are shockingly indecent, and coupled with his enablers already in power, he's managed to survive.

Agreed. But to me this is not an either/or scenario; it's both/and. 

Our planet is being surrounded by light beings from countless corners and dimensions, all conspiring to assist us in moving through this evolutionary transition with clarity and love. They've come because the darkness we've created on Earth and nurtured for centuries has gotten a little out of hand. It's now willfully disruptive to the natural process of evolution itself, and holds the powerful potential to destroy—not just our planet, but our region of the Milky Way. These innumerable beings—many of whom are also our Ancestors and Descendants—have a vested interest in preventing that outcome. But they're inhibited from interceding without our direct request for their help. All we need do is ask. And work to realize our own clear, dedicated intentions.

As dark as what I've laid out sounds, we're not alone in our struggle. We simply have to be brave enough and willing to face the metaphysical realities, however frightening. Ultimately, the great serpentine spiral of creation will continue on.

I actually read it all in about 20 minutes. Most of the content are workbook pages, blank lines for the reader to write down their process. 🙂

@pikake, Wow -- that is so true.  In my mind's eye, I just saw many in the broader population looking up from their despair, seeing that beautiful blanket of light and moving forward to join hands with us.

Count me in!
