Believe in Yourself – You’re Here to Change the World

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

In a time when humanity is socially and spiritually evolving, believing in ourselves is more crucial than ever. We have to have faith and confidence in ourselves, even if the rest of society puts us down, because we’re here to help the world come together, transform our society and find the higher state of consciousness that’s seemed nonexistent for millennia. It’s been here the whole time, but we’ve been conditioned to forget about it.

Even if you don’t believe in ascension or any other spiritual concepts, believing in yourself is still crucial. Let’s say you aren’t a very spiritual person, but you have a deeply rooted desire to expose and bring down the corrupt elite. You won’t be able to contribute anything significant if you don’t have enough confidence in yourself to believe you can, but increasing your self-confidence will enable you to enthusiastically contribute instead of hiding in the shadows for the sake of comfort.

Higher Consciousness: Your Connection Is Real

A reading by Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

Note from Wes: For a couple years, I’ve been trying to find a way to understand and communicate what these intuitive readings I’ve been receiving really are, and I’ve struggled with it until recently.

My channeling journey has been different from a lot of other people’s, and instead of sticking with one set definition of exactly what or who I was channeling (i.e. Ascended Masters, higher self, etc.), I’ve been trying to find the perfect way to define and subsequently expand the connection.

All of the name changes I’ve given these messages reflect the journey of understanding who they come from, and after some meditation and contemplation, I’ve arrived at what I think is the perfect label to help everyone understand what it is: Higher Consciousness.

‘Higher consciousness’, which I’ve written a lot about, is the higher self. It’s a good, deep meditation. It’s the Voice Within; the inner compass; our intuitive link with God, and if we can empty the mind and open up to it, it’ll impart its bliss onto us and teach us valuable lessons about our spiritual evolution.

You could say it’s what people really connect with when they channel angels, extraterrestrials or Ascended Masters, but some passionate spiritual seekers would disagree. I’ll leave it up to you to decide the truth of the matter for yourselves.

I know it’s silly to change the name of these messages over and over, but I think I’ve finally found the right description and understanding for them. This will be the final name change, and I can promise that you won’t have to worry about it anymore.

Thanks for hanging in there with me throughout this journey so far. I’m confident that it’s about to get a whole lot better! Continue reading

Depression and Spiritual Support

You might know someone who suffers from depression, and if you do, you probably know that life’s a struggle for them. As hard as they try, they can’t seem to overcome the harshly negative thoughts and feelings that swirl deep down, and they basically have a little bully in their mind that won’t go away. You might try to help them when the bully surfaces and does its damage, and you might succeed for the most part, but it’s sure to surface again another time soon.

The best thing we can do for a depressed loved one is to be there for them, and we don’t want to do or say anything that could cause them to spiral back down (or fall even further down if they’re already low). We don’t necessarily have to walk on eggshells, but we do want to be cautious about things that trigger their depression. We’ll want to keep their feelings in mind before we speak, and plenty of people will tell you that listening to them is a lot better than talking at them. Continue reading

Weekly Newsletter: A Long Creative Journey

I wrote the following for the one hundred and fifty-third issue of The Culture of Awareness Weekly Newsletter, which you can subscribe to for $11.11 a month via PayPal (the subscribe button is at the bottom of this post) or via check/cash (head here for more information).

Income from the newsletter helps my family and I get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content, and every subscription is appreciated.

When we discover our passion (or passions), we begin a long journey of commitment and expansion. It isn’t always as easy or free-flowing as we prefer, and there will always be challenges we can’t seem to get past and disciplines we require along the way. Ultimately, it’s a process that teaches us about ourselves and how we can expand our abilities, and while it can be uncomfortable, it gets easier as we move through it. Continue reading

More on Motivation and Spiritual Revolution

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

I wrote yesterday that I’m feeling more motivated to help people wake up, and today, I’m realizing that I also want to be more dedicated to the spiritual path. I want to write about more things that genuine spiritual teachers and other sources have said, and I want to put the things I learn into play.

Most importantly, I want to learn to be centered and present in this moment. I want to learn more about heart-centeredness and responding to difficult or stressful situations in a more constructive way, and I want to explore my consciousness a lot more. Continue reading

Motivation and Spiritual Revolution

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

I feel more motivated than ever to use writing to awaken and uplift people, and in my view, we have every reason to be thankful for (and excited about) our role in transforming the world.

We can change the world by pouring our love and creative expression into it, and the more art we create here, the more minds and hearts we can open. We can help people bring some joy back into their life, and we can inspire them to liberate themselves.

It can be easy to get unmotivated, but it helps to remember that we’re doing all of this for a reason. We’re here to help everyone wake up and make the inner and outer changes that are required if we want to collectively evolve, and no matter how hard we try to convince ourselves otherwise, everything we contribute is valuable. Even the things we don’t think are so great can help people in one way or another, and this is why we need to keep at it when our confidence wanes and we don’t think we can contribute anything significant.

Weekly Newsletter: The Liberating Power of Knowledge

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

I wrote the following for the 152nd issue of The Culture of Awareness Weekly Newsletter, which I offer for $11.11 a month.

Income from the newsletter helps me get by and allows me to write more free content, and you can subscribe via check/cash (learn more here) or PayPal (see the subscribe button at the bottom of this post).

Some spiritual teachers discourage the accumulation of knowledge, because in their eyes, it’s yet another way to feed the ego and distance ourselves from our higher consciousness. According to their philosophy, mental (or even spiritual) knowledge isn’t as valuable as direct experience, which we’ll only have when we empty the mind and give up the need to accumulate knowledge or anything else that feeds the mind. The more we mentally learn, the more we distance ourselves from spirit. Continue reading
