From David Nicol: “Subtle activism can be understood as a set of practices that allow us to connect, in the depths of our being, with our love for the world and our longing for it to reflect the highest potentials of human nature…[It] represents the intention to cultivate this force as a transformative presence in the world…underlying and informing all [our] actions is a shift in consciousness involving a deeper awareness of our essential interconnectedness.”
From Sandra Ingerman: “…once we set our intention to create a good outcome, the spiritual forces from within and without take over to manifest what is for the best of all concerned. We just need to always open our hearts in love for all of life when we do our dreaming. Then the work becomes to surrender the ego to the outcome of our dreams, having intended to create the most positive ones imaginable.”
From Arjun Walia: “I want to make it clear that my intention of presenting this information is to demonstrate that thoughts, intentions, prayer and other units of consciousness can directly influence our physical a world. Consciousness can be a big factor in creating change on the planet. Sending thoughts of love, healing intent, prayer, good intention, and more can have a powerful influence on what you are directing those feelings towards.”
Also, Claude Poncelet, in his shamanically-based work with multidimensional realms, invites all concerned to work toward the most harmonious outcomes for everyone involved.
Subtle Activism is a name given to working in collaboration with the subtle realms to support outcomes in the material world. It can involve orienting to human collective consciousness. It can involve invisible dimensions as well as our three-dimensional reality. It can involve life forms other than human – some from the invisible realms and some from our everyday world. Within a context of oneness, the fundamental reality is that we are all connected within the same ground of being. What any one of us does affects everything else and what everything else does affects every one of us.
We recognize that not all of us are able to engage in external activism, even though that is a valid path for many. We also recognize that “what we fight, we feed” and, in a similar way, what we support, we can nurture into being.
One of the important aspects of working with subtle activism is to attend to frequencies. There are countless qualities of consciousness and being from which we may choose the focus of our intention and activities. In this work, we pay a great deal of attention to the frequencies with which we resonate, as these frequencies define and co-create what emerges as a result of our subtle activism.
There are different forms of subtle activism. Group prayer, focused on healing outcomes, is one way to engage this process. Collective meditations that take place around the world, with groups and individuals in many and varied locales focused on the same intentions and outcomes, are another powerful way to engage in subtle activism. A Buddhist practice called tonglen is another dynamic way to do this. There are two versions of tonglen practice found on my website, www.nancynapier.com. There are also youtube videos made by Buddhist teachers that describe the process.
Sometimes, when we can’t find a clear intention, or when we don’t want our personal fears, wishes, or desires to limit what we are able to imagine, it’s possible to focus our subtle activism on calling into being the optimal future humanity, the optimal future earth, or the optimal future solution to a given collective situation or problem. This allows us not to have to imagine how that optimal outcome has to appear or even what elements it has to have as part of it. Instead, it allows us to open our hearts fully to the possibility that there is a perhaps unimaginable optimal future that is available to us.
In our Subtle Activism calls, we come together to do a group guided meditation in a call that occurs on the second Sunday of each month at 9pm Eastern time. (Occasionally, we need to shift from the 2nd Sunday of the month to the 3rd. If you call and discover that no one is there, please call again the following week.) All callers are muted so that we won’t be disturbed by background sounds and the calls are recorded so that you can listen to them later if you have to miss being on the call.
Here is the call-in information:
Conference Dial-in Number: 712-432-0900
Access Code: 453373
Playback Number for Recording: 712-432-0990
The calls generally last 20 minutes at most and we begin promptly at 9pm Eastern time. If you have to join late, it’s not a problem because the calls are muted.
