Choosing a High-Vibe Tribe
In their Manifesting What You Really Want lecture, Wayne Dyer and Deepak Chopra speak about the importance of leaving behind our tribal consciousness.
They say that tribal consciousness holds us back by passing on belief systems like viruses being the cause of colds and AIDS, God being a higher power separate from us, and other such nonsense.
For example, Deepak Chopra says that no illness is ever due to a pathogen; that that’s a misleading idea in medicine.
Rather he says illness is always a conspiracy of improbabilities; that a susceptible host falls prey to a pathogen. To not be a susceptible post, we must rise above fear-engendered responses.
And our tribe is expert at fear-engendered responses.
Which is why Wayne Dyer says he left the tribe a long time ago.
But I’m thinking there might be a tribe that doesn’t handicap us, but rather empowers us to new levels of consciousness and understanding.
I’m thinking there are groups we can seek out and opt in to to leverage the power of tribal consciousness.
In fact, I might even suggest that this Good Vibe Blog community is just such a tribe!
Maybe I’m playing loose with the definition of tribe,
okay, I looked it up:
Tribe, n. “A unit of sociopolitical organization consisting of a number of families, clans, or other groups who share a common ancestry and culture and among whom leadership is typically neither formalized nor permanent.”
I think we count.
.. regardless, I believe we don’t have to “leave the tribe” as much as we just need to choose one on purpose that supports what we’re up to.
I believe a carefully chosen tribe could support us in achieving high levels of consciousness and along with that, huge powers of manifestation.
(In fact, Wayne and Deepak have created such tribes! I visited Deepak’s last year – it was fab!)
Personal development guru Jim Rohn is often quoted for reminding us to be deliberate about who we hang out with, because that group has a strong effect on who we’re becoming. He says we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.
So I’ll accept Wayne and Deepak’s wise advice to consciously opt out of the particular tribal consciousness that says we are powerless players in a random and chaotic world and that there is good reason to fear others.
At the same time I’ll happily plug into the tribe that reminds me of the truth: that we are powerful creators, all connected, made of the stuff of Gods.
That’s a tribal consciousness I can get on board with. 😉
How about you – what is your tribe programming you with?
