What would it mean to have an interconnected field of global consciousness? How would we know that it exists? “Oneness” and other such notions have been a part of spiritual and religious traditions for millennia and more recently co-opted by modern spirituality, but where is the empiric evidence? This is the age in which the wisdom of classic cultures is being dovetailed with current research. A comprehensive field of human consciousness is beginning to gather the beginnings of scientific validation at as well.
In a previous ARHP Connect article fields were examined through Rupert Sheldrake’s work on Morphogenetic Fields – field that effect and potentially shape matter. In 2002 a study was released in Foundations of Physics by Nelson, Radin, Shoup and Bancel that used statistically significant variations in random number generators paired with a massively significant historical event that captured the attention of much of the world, the bombing of the World Trade Towers on September 11th, 2001.
Random number generators (RNGs) are devices used in research to measure how a device might be affected by outside influences not yet understood. An organization called the Global Consciousness Project has a connected network of these RNGs that have been collecting data since 1998. This data is publicly archived and open for anyone to examine or use as experimental data.
In this research it was found that immediately before, during and for 2 days after there was a strong disturbance in the randomness of the RNGs. Because the RNGs are desired to be random, when they are not it is an indication that something is affecting them. The RNGs also communicate through the network via quantum tunneling.
During the September 11th attacks the data showed a change in variation of 5 standard deviations, which is remarkable in any research. This variation means that the RNGs created strings of data that were much less random.
The researchers studied all the data since the inception of observation in 1998 and there was no other time frame in which such a dramatic shift in the data was observed. While this paper openly admits it has no formal mechanism for how this happens there are many who have created hypotheses.
Most hypotheses fall along this line. A global, interconnected network of quantum sensors picked up data of perturbations in the natural field of consciousness as so many people’s attention converged on one subject. In quantum physics we know observation makes an impact on the outcome of the event. This was verified in one of the quintessential quantum experiments called the Double-Slit Experiment in which a single particle would act as either a particle, wave or both depending on whether or not the process was observed by the researcher.
This research is starting to lead us in a direction of recognizing that the interconnectedness of human awareness does indeed have an impact on the world around us and that when that human consciousness is unified the effects are even greater.
On a smaller scale we have seen the effect of a group field on the immediate surroundings. In 1994 John Hagelin was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for the outcomes of his research on group consciousness. Hagelin arranged to have 4000 people come and practice Transcendental Meditation in Washington, DC. For 2 weeks. During that time period the researchers found that the crime rate decreased 18% from the predicted models.
As healers, and practitioners committed to making a difference on some scale, whether our own office or the planet it is important to recognize the effect that fields have. Creating an energy rich field has not only an impact on the session you are having with that client in the moment but also how much of an impact they can have in their lives and on the other microcosm fields they are in.
Reorganizational Healing has massively valuable techniques, and, no technique lives in a vacuum. Recognizing and leveraging the field is critical for a number of reasons. First is the field in your office. People are going to have greater results and the field in your office is going to grow. Secondly is the field of Reorganizational Healing. Every time you focus on doing the work and showing up in an Energy Rich state you add back to and strengthen the field of ROH and ROH practitioners. From this perspective we can see the field as a medium of community on a global, and likely, universal scale.
Dr. Donald Epstein has shared “Once a person has understanding, then they have responsibility”. Now that you understand that your experience never happens in isolation, but in fact has an impact on those around you how do you choose to show up?
