Last week I invited you to join me in visualizing the change in the world we want to see—the consciousness of the planet moving towards the new paradigm. To help you develop a clear enough mental picture of the new paradigm to join me in this visualization, I presented part one of a close look at the new paradigm and the direction I believe the shift is taking us. Today, we’ll finish up with part two, which again is an excerpt from my book Radical Manifestation.

Enemies as Teachers and Healing Angels
The people we dislike the most are our greatest teachers, for they may be offering us the opportunity to heal by either:
(a) mirroring what we hate in ourselves and have denied, repressed and projected onto them.
(b) forcing us to look at something we have repressed, and which remains a core belief or unhealed trauma.
(c) keeping us on track with our mission.
Life Is A Mirror
What appears to be happening in the objective world is merely illusion — it is just a projection of our consciousness (our unconscious beliefs, ideas, attitudes, etc.). To know what these are, look at what is showing up in your life. Life is simply a mirror and it will show you what your beliefs are. For example, if you believe that you can’t trust people, you will continually attract people into your life who will betray you.
We are very committed to being right about our beliefs so we unconsciously create all sorts of ways to prove or validate them. That’s how powerful we are, and we don’t know it!
Nothing to Forgive
Whereas the focus in the old paradigm was on judgment, anger, blame and punishment, the new paradigm holds that since everything happens for a reason, there is no such thing as right or wrong. It just is. From the spiritual perspective, therefore, nothing wrong or right is ever happening and there is nothing to forgive. Forgiveness is moot.
“Out There” versus “In Here”
Whereas in the old paradigm, the focus was always on the objective world out there, the new paradigm recognizes that the world “out there” is a projection of the world “in here,” and that there is no separation between them. It is all one. Even God now lives within each one of us instead of “up there.” We are now one with God and God is Love — the unifying force in the Universe.
Whereas the old paradigm existed within the constraints of three-dimensional reality, with religion as something separate, the new paradigm puts spirituality (not religion) front and center and expands our notions of reality to include dimensions beyond form and space that are spiritual in nature. String theory is close to proving that everything in the Universe is composed of tiny strings or loops of energy and that what they eventually manifest as in the physical world is a function of their vibrational frequency.
Instead of regarding our bodies as machines, we now see them as a set of interrelating energy fields and that health is a matter of balancing energy. In my work with corporations, I have them see their own corporation not as an amalgam of departments, buildings, systems and so on, but a complex energy field composed of all the energy fields of the people who work there.
They are now beginning to understand that corporate health depends on the health of the corporate energy field, and that, in turn, depends on everyone in the corporation having energy fields that are clear and healthy.
Cause or Effect
Whereas the old paradigm places us totally at the mercy of life with no part to play in the creation of it, the new paradigm offers us the opportunity to be not just the effect in a cause-and-effect world, but the cause. This is not just talk. The physicists have proven that consciousness is the creative force in the Universe and that matter manifests as a consequence of our observation of it.
Matter can exist as both a wave and a particle. Prior to its manifesting, it exists as a wave form — a potential. It manifests when it converts from being a wave to being a particle. What determines whether it is a wave or a particle is our consciousness. So, far from being inconsequential to creation itself, we are creating the world in every moment. Our life is our own creation. Realizing this is the first step towards Radical Manifestation.
The new paradigm makes very little sense to our logical mind, because our logic and reasoning is conditioned to think according to the structure of the old paradigm. Our attempts to explain it in the language of the current one is feeble, but it’s the best we can do at this time.
Though we do have quantum physics to back up the new paradigm to an extraordinary degree, the only form of validation we have as an individual arises as a profound inner knowing — a subjective reality. Therefore, the metaphysical construction of reality is not so much a theory as an experience. The only proof of its value is that, when we trust it and go with it, it seems to work.
For me, of course, the best example of this is Radical Forgiveness. I have been teaching it for almost 10 years and find it to be extraordinarily successful. It really does work, and yet it is built entirely on the basis of the new metaphysical paradigm.
To the rational mind, raised in the context of the old objective paradigm, Radical Forgiveness makes no sense whatsoever. But even with an analytical, left-brained skeptic still operating from within the old paradigm, it works just as well — so long as he or she is willing to give it a try by using the simple tools that the technology provides.

December 21, 2012—the last day in the ancient Mayan calendar that prompted many to predict various doomsday scenarios—has come and gone. Whether or not there’s a shift in the physical form of the world’s structures, let’s hold to the vision of the new paradigm growing in strength and influence in 2012, and the positive changes it brings to every life it touches. Starting with yours!
PS. If you’d like your 2013 to be radically different from your 2012—perhaps by stepping out of victimhood physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually—consider The Miracles Workshop, which is coming up next month. Although the Early Bird seats are gone, you can still join us for this powerful residential retreat in the beautiful north Georgia mountains of Dahlonega, GA.
