• The Great British Brexit


    Last night was one of the most intense out of body experiences I have spontaneously had in years.  The collective distress that called me out of body was something I usually experience in conjunction with a natural disaster or a war.  But low and behold, it was in fact related to the debate happening in Great Britain involving whether or not Great Britain would stay in the European Union or leave the European Union.  Living in America, these kinds of foreign decisions feel worlds away.  America in general is self-interested and the average citizen is unaware of foreign affairs.  But in the collective unconscious, it is as if the world knows that this will have an impact not just on Europe, but also on the rest of the world.


    2.jpgThis debate is not a small debate.  It is a debate that is so polarized that people have sided in an extreme way.  From the fifth dimension it is clear that people either feel separating from the EU will be nothing short of either a brilliant new age or utter catastrophe.  And the people campaigning on both sides have fueled this polarization by doing what campaigners do… distorting facts and oversimplifying and fear mongering and playing on prejudices to the point where it shows up as a crisis in the collective human energy field.  The side that has contributed the most fear to the collective is the side in favor of leaving the EU.  They have caused a very interesting reaction in people.  They have caused people to shut down and close up.  When people feel threatened enough by others, they go into a ‘selfish’ mode.  People close the openness of their boundaries and close to the flow of energy both in and out.  And regardless of what the future will see as a result of this change, this is what Great Britain (as a reflection of its people) has done today.  It is similar energy to a turtle going into its shell but with an attitude of “now I’m free from everyone else outside me that poses a threat".

    brexit (1).jpgWe all know what ultimately did happen.  Despite the polarization, one side did prevail.  It was the side in favor of leaving.  Great Britain is leaving the EU.  And as a result, their Prime Minister has resigned.  The news had great impact for me, not just because of the experience I had before waking, but also because I spend time in London often for my career.  Everything feels more personal when you have some kind of relationship with a place (regardless of whether that relationship is positive or negative).  The economy will absolutely see an impact.  The trade will absolutely see an impact.  All of this will impact the rest of the world.  And the impact is not something that either side is fully aware of.  It’s one of those situations where the collective will simply be able to see the impact in retrospect.  But I have to tell you that from the perspective I gained in the out of body observation I did last night, the aspect of collective conscious that has me the most worried as a result of this decision to leave, is the aspect related to immigration.

    Whether or not Europe (especially Great Britain) is aware of it yet or not on a conscious level, this decision to leave the EU has upset immigrant populations.  It has upset the people who could freely live and work in England without being blocked by red tape.  But even more importantly, it has severely effected non EU immigrants.  Those who come from outside the EU, especially the Muslim population. 

    ingroup-outgroup.jpgRegardless of whether or not the actual issue of immigration relative to the decision to leave is overblown, it is now very real.  Perception is reality.  And the perception people have is one that deeply concerns me.  This decision has made many immigrants feel unwanted, unconsidered, turned against and like outsiders.  They feel scorned.  This has caused them to start severing their emotional connection to the rest of the British people.  And it has given rise to a ‘me vs. them’ mentality.  And that mentality is VERY, VERY dangerous.  When I see this mentality spike in the collective, it often leads to bloodshed.  Some will simply keep this hurt inside.  Others will not.  But one thing is for sure, peace does not belong to Great Britain right now.  The country has chosen in favor of conflict. 

    Not all conflict is bad.  Sometimes conflict must occur to get to something better.  But sometimes, when we look back, it becomes obvious that what we gained wasn’t worth the price.  Polarized decisions like this that are made from a space of being triggered, decisions that are made without a genuine awareness of the impact of the decision, make me very nervous.  Awareness only reveals itself in retrospect in these situations.  And it is almost always a harsh wake up call. 

    impact.jpgI have a very different perspective than most people because my vantage point is different.  It is not a third dimensional perspective.  That being said, I have to admit that I love the golden age vision that many supporters of 'leaving' have for the country.  But based on my own rather ‘outside the box’ vantage point about the actual impact the decision will have on people, I was not for Great Britain leaving the EU.  I was in favor of them staying.  I feel a bit anxious and disheartened over the decision that was made.  There is a genuine uncertainty in the collective consciousness of the world, and especially Europe now.  It is ‘up in the air’ for most people what will actually happen.  Uncertainty is torment for the human mind.  That uncertainty is rippling outwards.  It is affecting me as an extrasensory intensely today.

    question-bricks.jpgBecause what we have in the world today (as a result of this decision being made) is nothing but ‘potentials’, uncertainty is the very thing that needs to be directly addressed.  There are people in this world who feel awesome about the decision.  They feel nothing but a positive future awaiting.  But others feel the exact opposite.  They feel nothing but an uncertain future full of potential negatives. 

    When something is not known or not decided relative to a circumstance that causes you stress or pain, you feel vulnerable.  There is no sense of resolution. This lack of resolve in and of itself adds to the distress you feel.  There is no relief.  It feels like you are stuck in a powerless place with no sense of control and completely at the mercy of the world.  So, if this is how you are feeling today, this is for you:

    I voted leave. I felt my reasoning was good. I based it on personal power. Be strong and healthy so you can then help others which in my personal life I have not done. Bugger bugger bugger! My heart was in the right place from my perspective! I hope it will all be ok.

    Ofc it will all be ok, but that doesn't mean it'll feel good. From where I'm standing this is a decision that will result in pain for a great many, and not just the immigrant populations of GB. From what I've seen though, some people have been making the effort to understand those on the 'opposing' side of the argument, rather than buying into the demonising. This is in itself a beautiful thing!!

    Uncertainty...This is exactly how I feel... the referendum has divided the country, just like the Scottish referendum did. The latter even created huge arguments within families. Sometimes democracy turns out to be divisive... Most people I know are saddened and shocked by this result. :(

    The campaigns for and against Brexit were confusing and indeed polarised. Most people had no chance of understanding the impact of leaving the EU, especially those living outside of London. Triggered mostly by fears over immigration, leave voters just about clinched it. Immigration has its pros and cons: I cherish living in a multi-cultural society - this is what makes this country so awesome! However, I can also see the pressures population growth is creating (+500,000 last year alone, with 330,000 from net migration, just over half of which came from outside the EU  and in the last 10 years it has grown by 5 million - and that rate is not sustainable).

    Economically (and politically) the UK is likely to be in turmoil for a very long time, creating a lot of anxiety and feeling of uncertainty. Thank you for the video! We will need it - and not just in the UK! <3

    By the way, as an EU citizen and UK resident for nearly 29 years I wasn't allowed to vote myself. However, Australians staying here for much shorter time could have voted!!

    It is not uncertainty that causes torment for the human mind. Uncertainty is the natural state of all things. It is lack of acceptance of uncertainty that creates torment for the human mind...

    England has always been a fence-sitter when it comes to the EU. The greatest example of this is its refusal to abandon the Pound and go totally with the Euro.  Political identification is not as important as whether a person has identification with the human race as a whole, and principal identification with anything less than the whole renders that lesser identification dangerous to the planet...

    You are so right about the immigrants.  I spent time studying in Spain, and I have never seen so many homeless Muslim women and children immigrants in my entire life.  Muslim women praying in the streets night after night, day after day.  There were riots because of homelessness and unemployment.  

    I can't imagine what the Muslim immigrants in Britain will do.  Many of them are in better condition then the ones in Spain, but I'm sure they feel left behind, and the backs turned on them.  This is the same fear that we spread with Trump theology.  Haha.  

    What are the answers?  I say lets build self-sufficient, sustainable, intentional communities that promote life!  And TEACH those in need how to build their own!  We can build Earthships out of recycled material!  Google it!  And of course, we must AWAKEN!  Unite in love (instead of divide in fear).  RALLY THE AWAKENED!  

    We can end war by giving love instead!

    Taken as a collection of countries Europe is a wonderful place, however the EU is a disgrace.  As a union it is more akin to the old Soviet Union than the US.  The country with the highest standard of living in Europe is Switzerland which also happens to have never joined the EU.  That is not a coincidence.  If anyone is interested in knowing more there is a video on youtube called Brexit the movie going into the details of the antidemocratic bureaucratic wet dream that is the EU.

    The division began when the politicians of Europe did not listen to the plight of their people and, as they and big business feathered their own nests, they insisted the poor suffered the effects of their austerity measures. If Europe was 'working' there would have been no need for a referendum.

    If  European political policy means poverty, lost generations, unemployment, raping all hope from Greeks and Italians, then I fail to see a benefit in that kind of unity. Kindness to migrants 'after the fact', is a pathetic excuse for a serious and massive lack of foresight towards the care of other Middle East nations; if we were genuine and caring as a people we would have ensured these people were adequately cared for before they felt the need to flee their homes and families. 

    The vote to leave is a positive and defiant message to those politicians that their inactive and greedy rule does not reflect the hearts of the people.

    We in the Uk love all people, let us now show the world that our empowerment is the empowerment of love, not greed, not fear, not austerity, but positive forward movement.

    Er Teal...Britain has been as friendly as any country can possibly be to immigrants for many, many years...I live right in the centre of england - Manchester...Nearly a quarter of the population here is foreign, this is one of the most mixed/tolerant cultures in the world, we dont have the same level of racial seperation and prejudice that you see in many american states, the way the police over there treat blacks is disturbing! Britain had one of the highest global standings of activism against the iraq/afganistan war and so on, england has moved much further with global integration than america has yet, if you lived here all your life you would know this from actual experience. But i agree with your point on seperation not being positive:)

    I am agree with it. Just today with my friend compared the EU to the Soviet Union. And if to look at the EU energetically what I see is a grey veil around the countries which are in. The UK had a very strong shield of it before, which didn't let pure energies to flow normally. And now I finally see it flaming with those energies, what made me feel good for the country I am most connected to on this planet.

    Hi Teal - thanks for writing your thoughts on this - I was interested to know your position. I voted leave - but for me and I know many of us, it was not about the people of Europe in any way - it was about the corruption in the EU itself - Brussels, where they make our laws for us and we have no say in it. It was/is destined to become some sort of super power and I felt it was moving towards everything that we are trying to save this planet from - the global 'elite', one world government, lack of freedom - for me this was a big show of freedom, freedom from the slavery they were trying to impose on us all. There is a large proportion of the country that have voted sole for immigration reasons, which is sad. However, I flt that we needed the immigration problem, to prompt these votes, to break up the EU. It may not have happened if we hadn't had that large share of votes. Great Britain gives more in foreign aid, charity donations and other aid than many countries so it is not that we are not charitable. I know many of us would take all of these refugees in if we could - I would. However we are only an island with a finite amount of space. So we have to look at this problem from many different angles. I hope that this will trigger other countries to remove themselves from this beaurocratic farcical system called the EU - hopefully we can ditch the flag, the anthem and go back to being strong countries, friends and trading partners on our own terms - that is what I had hoped for by voting out,. The new golden age as you mentioned. There was no malice in my vote whatsoever. This is not about the individual countries of Europe or the people. I for one hope this will lead to a brighter peaceful place for us all and peace does belong here. Much love to you all xx

    Teal, I agree with you 100% and I feel your opinion is especially important considering you know very well about the control in our world and who seems to have the control and that if you are still voting IN has a lot of weight! I read most of the comments on this blog and nearly all of them voted leave - I feel they have not looked into the past and especially not looked into the past of Great Britain in the parts of the world most of the immigration is coming from! How significant it is that Scotland who wants to leave Great Britain, voted mostly IN. If they get their second chance I bet they vote this time around to leave Great Britain and vote IN again for the EU. Would it not have been much wiser from a human standpoint to invest all this effort to change the EU into something better, into something more positive for all? Does anyone know what an effort and years have gone into uniting 28 countries, all with different cultures and languages into one unit with more or less common goals? Some compare the EU with the Sowjet Union, that does not show much political and historic knowledge. I was born in what became later Communist Germany and know very well how shortsighted these kind of comparisons are.

    Teal, thank you again for this very wise and intelligent blog!

    I'm honestly so glad you wrote this. I saw so many opinions on this topic today most were either crazy, egoistic, or limited as hell.

    The Brexit made me incredibly sad (and I'm not even British) and the fear and hate based insanity that's going on in politics these days is extremely stressful to see. So I was like "I need some sanity. I really wish Teal wrote a blog on this topic because she's one of the very rare people that thinks objectively, and that feels for everyone equally and that knows the bigger picture."

    But then I was like nah she just wrote a blog like a day ago, there's no way she posted a new one already, and she said she isn't interested in politics and so on. But I had the strong urge to check and yup "The Great British Brexit", THANK YOU.

    And finally someone who understands what it means for the immigrants. Finally someone who looks at the emotion that caused the exit in the first place. ("Fear, me vs them"). It's so good to see some rationality and sanity. My god people don't learn from history. They think they can solve issues by turning away from problems, by letting others solve them. They think that hate and rejection will keep them save but what about the other side? What feelings will this cause? Refugees and immigrants won't disappear. Until we find a CONSTRUCTIVE solution the situation won't improve. We all live on the same planet and if you run away from those in help, you will sooner or later notice that what goes around comes around.

    This is how you create victims, and victims so often turn to radical methods. How often does history have to repeat itself, until we get that the creative and constructive force is fucking love and openness and not fear and rejection? 

    Also the wide majority of 18-45 year olds voted stay. Nevertheless, they are the ones who are gonna see the long time consequences of the decision they didn't make.

    I noticed how artists again have a much more logical, objective and understanding perspective on the topic. It's like J.K.Rowling said, "This is what happens when you try and fix a faulty watch with a hammer".

    Why do we suddenly have two Donald Trumps who look and act absolutely identical? Is that the manifestation of the world's fear? Well hopefully they won't manifest exactly the outcome that they were so hatefully dwelling on. Anyway, I'll hope for the best, I don't have any fs left to give anyway.

    Hopefully, this will cause people to start challenging the governments, we all know the systems of kings and queens in place, hopefully, as a collective we become more conscious, more aware, get up of the sofa and protest, overthrow them, rid of these systems to keep us in fear, I believe if Trump and Brexit in 'power', would cause the majority of people to take action, however, I only hope it is non violent action, such as Gahndi once accomplished, saved a whole frickin country with peaceful protests, but, I really do hope humanity chooses love, or at leasts finds it.

    I think this is the start of the change we want. People are choosing more Union and less political Union. Most of all the countries are controlled by 1 % of the population, the rich people, and the control and pay the politicians. And both the rich and the politicians don't listen at all to the 99 %. So now I think people will chose more and more against the "normal" political situations and choose more change. And change will give uncertainty feelings like we all know. And it will give also a lot of beautiful possilities to do things better and differently. More equal, less divided. Less war, violence  and throwaway community but more sustainable. Lets us do this together.

    I voted out - because of the 'system' not being for the people - but the people always working for the system. We are sick of being robots and being told what we have to do. The uproar is simply because of change - people can't handle it, because since we were in EU, there's no community spirit, we have no time for that as we are forced to work such long hours to pay for our 'system' so we can pay huge amounts of money to belong to the EU. If i have £10 in my purse, i would give it to someone who needs it, but this wasn't the case within the EU, we would only have £10 left after working our fingers to the bone, then someone would take that because of our 'system' I used your theory, 'what would someone who loves themselves do?' - i walked away from the turmoil so i can dream of a brighter future. Yes, we may be in the poop for a while, but it will improve. Our most drastic recession was when we joined the EU. The cities are full of emotionless people, rushing about to make millions for their corporations - it's wrong, people need to slow down, take stock, and enjoy their lives and the planet they live on - and not be so consumed by doing the right thing for other people (corporations)
