How Shelter Cats Are Changing Prisoners Lives In Indiana

We’ve written of the healing powers of animals for years here at Collective Evolution and many of us have accepted the fact that the therapeutic nature of our pets is truly something to be noted. Cats and dogs have been reported to help with depression and anxiety, and of course serve as some of the best companions, elevating our moods and decreasing our blood pressure.  It is not far-fetched to think that their ability to heal and transform lives can go well beyond our standard day to day pet — but to that of those imprisoned and foreseeably ‘alone’ in this world.

The Animal Protection League partnered with the state of Indiana for an incredible project at the Pendleton Correctional Facility called F.O.R.W.A.R.D. in 2015, which has since helped so many. Shelter cats are brought in to the correctional facility so that inmates can be given companionship, and the cats are now in the care of both the inmates and the program facilitators to be sure they are given the proper attention and temporary home.

Due to the nature of the shelters, there are pets that go unseen or ‘unwanted’ and fall under the care of the facility so that they may remain social within the confines of a controlled environment to help with any stress or anxiety that comes from consistent transferring and moving around until they find their forever homes. The prisoners feed, groom and clean after them, allowing the cats to start trusting again. Of course, this project has shown to be a great initiative for both parties!

 

 

The cats aren’t the only ones that benefit — the inmates are provided with an opportunity to learn compassion by caring for something that needs love and responsibility – the commitment we all need to understand.

“I’ve had offenders tell me when they got an animal, it was the first time they can remember they were allowing themselves to care about something, to love something,” said the director of Animal Protection League, Maleah Stringer.

“It teaches them responsibility, how to interact in a group using non-violent methods to solve problems and gives them the unconditional love of a pet – something many of these inmates have never known,the APL writes on their website.

These animal programs are spreading across US prisons, with Monroe Correctional Complex-Special Offender Unit being no exception, teaming up with the organization called Purrfect Pals.

“The MCKC Program has reduced offender idleness, taught offenders about responsibility and increased their self-esteem. Since the program’s inception, offenders have been motivated to enroll in school, obtain jobs, obey unit rules and improve their hygiene so that they may become MCKC participants. The presence of animals on E Unit has added a new calmness to E Unit’s therapeutic milieu and strengthened its community spirit,” Purrfect Pals writes on their website.

The Takeaway

Though many were outraged that individuals on death row or pedophiles could participate and overlook the care of such innocent animals, I find it crucial given where we stand as a society today. Connection with another being is the upmost important thing one can practice when disconnected from their true selves. How can we go about aiding those who have done ‘wrong’ if we cannot open our hearts to their own and allow them to work with other living beings to express love?

The truth of the matter is, no matter what crime has been committed, it is up to us to help our fellow brothers and sisters grow, learn, change, and better themselves so that they may be better for when they are released into our world again. It’s stories like these under the care of both facility and program that will help shape a better tomorrow.

20+ NEW Illustrations That Highlight The Harsh Realities Of Modern Society

We here at CE, as well as many of you, know a thing or two about narratives. As we venture deeper into truth and conscious media, it seems more and more people are awakening to the reality that humanity is not what we have been led to believe for so long. A great part of society is still manipulated and force-fed real ‘fake news’ only to go on trusting the narratives delivered by mainstream media.

Fortunately, there are advocates, journalists, and artists alike pushing others to be open to and see the truth for what it is. The good, the bad, and the ugly – we are set to face not only our own shadows but those of our collective.

Rafael Alvarez is a Spanish illustrator whose artwork is telling of where we as a society fall short today. As Bored Panda reported, “Alvarez portrays scenarios many people might find familiar. However, his technique is to highlight an angle few people consider. And, that angle is usually quite shocking.

Like many artistic activists, Alvarez is hoping to “stun” the public awake with his mind-opening illustrations. After all, if one blindly accepts their reality without questioning the “how’s” and “why’s” of life, then one is, in fact, a sheep. As cute as sheep might be, they are more likely to fall in line without question versus work hard to create a better, healthier world.

Alvarez’s illustrations inspire each of us to ask the questions, “Will I be a sheep?” Or, “will I roar like a lion and demand more than the status quo?”

Denver International Airport’s New Ad Campaign Pokes Fun At ‘Conspiracy Theories’

In many ways, utilizing occult or Illuminati symbolism here in 2018 has become quite trendy. Whether it be intentional, as per ‘rules of the Illuminati,’ to gain the consent of the masses, or whether it is entirely a pop culture/trendy display that is innocent and unassuming, it’s common.

When I say ‘the rules of the Illuminati,’ I’m referring to what has been called their religion or set of guidelines they believe they must follow. Given that their actions would be imposing on the free will of global citizens, having to disclose what they are doing to humanity to gain permission, or consent, from them is precisely why they use so much symbolism and ritual in the public eye. Further, since it is their religion, they attempt to make it popular and trendy. We see this today with the rise of pop-y and trendy witch culture for example. Symbolism that primarily is seen in their rituals or satanic beliefs, are also found in this new and trendy culture. From music videos and films to advertising & marketing, there are plenty of examples of the masses ‘consenting’ to symbolism and such in plain sight.

Now let’s begin to look at what Denver airport has done. As a quick backstory, Denver airport has always been suspected as having many elite/deep state and occult links, and for good reason which we will get into below.

On Sept 4th 2018, Denver International Airport (DIA) tweeted something that is either a genius marketing ploy or a ‘hidden in plain sight’ scenario:

If you’re unfamiliar with the lore surrounding DIA, its secret underground tunnels or even its art, let me catch you up to speed on the ‘conspiracies.’

Behold A Pale Blue Horse

Okay, so it’s a bit more cobalt blue in this case, but hear me out..

Just outside of the airport stands an apocalypse-related horse statue which many claim is the demon horse Blucifer which has come to represent death, destruction, and deluded debates. Oddly enough, prior to its unveiling, a portion of this 9,000 pound sculpture fell on its creator and severed an artery in his leg leaving him dead and in turn having locals and tourists believe it is cursed as the overall energy has left many feeling uneasy.

The 32-foot-tall “Mustang” demon horse statue (popularly known as Blucifer) rears up by the road leading to Denver International Airport

On the note of art and display at the airport, it is important we highlight a major attraction for ‘conspiracy theorists’ and reasons for speculation.  One of the many eerie murals (which as a whole is even more disturbing) displayed at DIA is here below. As per review, it is highlighting genocide, ecocide, war, mass murder and eluding to the New World Order.

Again if we follow the rules of the Illuminati as outlined above, they typically put out their intentions as a display to the public to gain consent. Again, why do this? This is their RELIGIOUS like belief.

The mural “Children of the World Dream of Peace” by Artist Leo Tanguma features some violent imagery filled with apocalyptic symbolism.

As you can see the mainstream media has given their commentary on the subject:

“After years of speculation by conspiracy theorists, officials at the Denver International Airport in Colorado have finally admitted that something’s going on.
DIA, as it’s known, is one of the biggest airport in the world, with just under 53 square miles (13,726 hectares) of developed airport space. That space has loads of restricted areas (it’s an airport after all), underground tunnels and some weird, or even disturbing, art— including a giant blue fiberglass mustang statue with orange glowing eyes.
It’s all very suspicious to some people, who are convinced the airport is part of a plot by the Freemasons, or the Illuminati, or a colony of lizard people.
The airport is doing a $650 to $770 million renovation to its Great Hall and has put up temporary walls to hide the mess (or at least that’s what they want you to think). They decided to have some fun with the rumors.” – CNN
The airport has now created the “Den Files” website that highlights some of the wildest theories that date back to the very beginning of DIA’s history. The Den Files state that the airport was dedicated on March 19, 1994, and if you add the numbers 1+9+1+9+9+4 you get 33.. the highest level that one can obtain in the Freemasonry.
On one side I began to feel that ‘they know we know’ as the cryptic messages on the signs that are now plastered across the airport publicly displayed and that this is solely damage control to have us think we’ve been nuts all along to assume anything but flights are taking place here.
These new ad campaign signs allude to so-called “conspiracy theory” topics such as aliens, UFOs, CERN, Freemasonry, Illuminati, underground tunnels, and even reptilians in disguise.

With all of the Illuminati and freemason mentions, you could say that this is trolling at its highest degree (no pun intended).

What could be the reason and intention for such advertising beyond having the masses view these theories as laughable and become disregarded and turned the blind eye to? I’ll let you decipher and explore.

 

A Century Of AI Influence In Hollywood And How It May Affect Us

Let’s face it, it’s almost impossible these days to fully detach from the idea that AI is out there and quickly making its way into all of our day-to-day lives. From Saudi Arabia granting citizenship to a robot, to ‘convenient’ virtual AI assistants such as Alexa and Siri becoming the norm – there’s no surprise that our media is filled with a creeping reality that we, as humanity, may soon be coexisting fully with AI.

So where did it all begin? When exactly did we start seeing the technological fantasy of robots living in our world go from on-screen to our reality? And more so, did we invite them in ourselves or were we slowly groomed to welcome them in subliminally through television and film?

There is a lot to consider and much ground to cover here, but let’s begin with the simple facts. The first time the masses were introduced to artificial intelligence via the big screen was in the film Metropolis. Since then we have seen the number of AI cameos go up and quickly multiply. In the past 8 years alone, we have seen an increase of AI in films by 144% versus the last decade. What could be the cause or purpose of such exponential growth of pushing AI into our consciousness, and more so – why, as we move forward, do the characters seem to become more human-esque; displaying emotion, remarkable intelligence, ability to teach itself, and desire to remain alive for the sake of not ‘dying’ as though human themselves?

Ray Kurzweil predicted in his film Transcendent Man back in 2009 that we will soon be, within the 21st century, living in a human-machine civilization. That may be true, and perhaps we’ve already stepped into that reality to an extent as we see more jobs being handed to robots or more individuals being open to AI intimacy, but we can still avoid a full ‘invasion’ agenda. We are capable of so much more than allowing robots to take over and fully infiltrate our world if this is in fact the case of our foreseen future.

The main drive for this article was to further note that regardless of who or what we do (or do not) begin to coexist with, that it is important to never lose touch with who we are and our human nature. What truly matters most is not what lies at your convenience within a screen, but what is within YOU as a whole. Disconnect to reconnect. Whether we choose to accept our ever-evolving world or not, it is important to remember that though we may need to adapt and evolve beyond who we are today, never lose sight of nor sacrifice the very essence that makes you unique, human.

We must be cautious and conscious of how we consume our media, as ill intentions and agendas are at times in play to veer our attention and skew our perspectives, in turn to create realities in which we have consented to.

Again, there could be many reasons as to why the way AI is displayed to us has shifted over the years, and so as not to speculate but solely deliver my point of view and insight, I just wanted to review the facts and share the infographic below for us to review and reflect on together.

Kanye West Says We Must Be ‘Fearless Enough To Break The F*cking Simulation’

LOVE. That’s been Kanye West’s message for a few months now and I for one could not be happier, as both someone who has crossed paths with him and a fan of his earlier works, as well as someone who can truly appreciate when there is evident growth in any given individual.

Look, it’s difficult to say if anyone has truly gone through an awakening of sorts or not, whether it be a celebrity or our very own close friends, but it is always beautiful to see and important when others are speaking out on things many would, in fact, be fearful of speaking on, let alone on LIVE television for the world to watch and cast their judgments on.

With that said, as I scrolled through my daily feed and came across this video, I found it crucial to share.

Last night, Thursday, August 9th, on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” West went on yet another one of his well-known lengthy discussions on his present mentality and perspectives on life. He spoke about how difficult it was for him to overcome the fear he initially had when wishing to come forward as a Trump supporter, and how there are two main motivating forces in this world we are living in, Love and Fear.

This is how he expressed the latter:

“Just as a musician, African-American, a guy out in Hollywood — all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” West said. “And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over. I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks — we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only like, we can only be Democrats and all. So, even when I said it right before I went to the hospital and I expressed myself, and when I came out I had lost my confidence.”

“So, I didn’t have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash, and it took me a year and a half  to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat no matter what the consequences were,” he continued. “And what it represented to me is not about policies because I’m not a politician like that. But it represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt, no matter what anyone said, in saying, you can’t bully me. Liberals can’t bully me. News can’t bully me. The hip-hop community — they can’t bully me. Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye. And I actually quite enjoy when people are mad at me about certain things.”

Watch the video below to hear the full interview as he dives deeper into love, the simulation we are living in, education, slavery, over-protection, hate, pride and more:

There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ here, but take a moment to reflect on what is being said. How can we be more present and act in love more frequently as a collective? As we like to say here at Collective Evolution, ‘CHANGE STARTS WITHIN’ and that’s something to really think about & act on, I’d say.

The Flying Humanoid Phenomena Of Mexico

Throughout time in mainstream media and the entertainment industry we have been programmed to see beings outside of human as dangerous, and for the most part there is a good chunk of fear-based propaganda to remind us of the potential danger if we were to encounter a visit.

Though new films and shows have been coming forth with a different perspective & narrative and new space forces are being declared, it is interesting to question the why. Stories of otherworldly visitors have been spread for centuries, and it is time we closely examine them with an open mind.

In this specific instance, an officer driving his patrol car in Mexico has seen a dark shape that he verified was, in fact, a “flying humanoid entity” which he described looked like a floating old woman, dressed in all black with dark skin and eyes that were “just black sockets, without eyelids.”

This startling apparition then apparently flew over to hover right in front of the vehicle and the stunned occupant within. He could see it better at this time, and noted that it was a hideous old woman that “resembled a witch.” Apparently annoyed by the car’s high beams, the witch then reportedly covered her face with some sort of cloak and then flew right into the vehicle’s windshield, causing the dumbfounded officer to go speeding back in reverse. He would explain the terrifying events like this:

As soon as I realized it was a kind of woman being, or a witch, very strange standing there trying to cover her face, she threw herself against my car very fast, falling on the car and hitting the windshield. She was flying very fast and it took only a second to hit the windshield glass. I was so shocked by this action that I put the car in reverse and pushed the accelerator trying to get away while requesting backup assistance by radio.

It was a woman with big black eyes, everything was black, no eyelids. Her skin was dark brown and her expression was horrible. She was furiously trying to get me with her claws while I was running away in reverse calling desperately for backup assistance to any units around.

If you would like to read more about why humanity is seemingly ‘obsessed’ with the ET phenomena at this time, please read more here and watch our latest video to dive deeper into the subject matter.

15+ Illustrations That Will Get You Thinking Deeply About Who You Truly Are

While strolling through social media or ‘surfing’ the internet, you are sure to come across numerous graphics and illustrations that are used to grab your attention. You have the standard ‘click-bait’ images and titles used to lure you in leaving you unfulfilled, and then you also have the out of this world imagery that you go to simply to discover more. But the most beautiful of cases are those that really get you thinking deeply, reflecting on the innermost part of us.

Throughout the past couple of years, I have seen plenty of new art coming forth that illustrates deeper insight, understanding and spiritual implications of what humanity is either going through or appearing as – and with that, I wanted to share one of the artists that had come up on my feed time and time again with some incredible messaging.

Her name is Medya Bulduk, and her work speaks for itself. Whether visually elaborating on releasing ourselves of fear, ego or limitations in general, or bringing together of humanity through our differences AND similarities, she does an amazing job at creating a visual story that gets you pondering.

Below are some of her works that I have pulled together via her site. What do they make you feel? What do you think about when you see these images? Who are we, truly? We have a podcast discussing this very topic if you’d like to listen.

Two children living in the present.

Most of your problems aren’t real problems.

Sometimes it’s easier to pretend, than to explain the unexplainable.

Not all pain is visible.

There are no bad students or children, only those who need motivation, guidance and love.

Be careful with who you choose to have in your life. Energies are real.

Stop giving people power to control your emotions and your worth. If you don’t control your mind, someone else will.

Train your mind as well as your body and train your body as well.

 

Why ‘Having It All’ Doesn’t Make You Happy (& What Does)

There are plenty of idioms I could bring to point in starting this article, but I won’t beat around the bush. We are all aware or have at the very least heard that ‘money can’t buy happiness,’ and within the spiritual community, we seem to understand the depths of that message. So why is it that some of us still seek to attain a life or lifestyle that seems to fall under that very pretense?  

It’s simple, we’ve been programmed to believe and sold on the idea that it will, in fact, bring us happiness in all ways as soon as we reach a certain level of ‘success.’ Whether it be through advertising, marketing or social media & celebrity influence, we have probably been subjected to a false reality on some screen or another.  

Important to note, I am not saying that money is ‘evil’ or that having wealth in this form is ‘wrong’ – but more so that the act of striving for success in monetary form will never fill the void we believe we have. 

Over the past few weeks alone we have seen multiple deaths, claimed to be by suicide, of people who were notably regarded to be of influence, wealth and perceived as happy in their lives. It’s a touchy subject and we know it’s not at all solely those that are idolized that suffer from such deep sadness, but for this example it is crucial to make my point in that, as the title implies, having it all does not mean you are automatically rewarded with happiness.

Let’s Get Personal

A little personal tidbit as well to add to the mix is my own experience within the entertainment industry and my glimpses of such ‘success’ over the years I spent modeling. At the time, I was 18 years old and had just moved to NYC and was quickly swooped up by a big talent agency. Within weeks, I landed my first big advertisement campaign for Timex and Marc Ecko and could be seen in magazines and on billboards around the globe.

After a few months of this, I moved into an apartment in the city and a couple years later a penthouse. I knew just about everybody who was ‘somebody,’ but there was still this IMMENSE sense of lack, and though my practice (meditation) was still being implemented, it was less consistent and more disrupted with chaos than peace due to the fast pace of both the city I lived in and my career.

After a million & one lessons (and clear signs from the Universe), I made the decision to come back to my Self; ground and re-connect. How did this look for me? One day I just got up and left – cold turkey. All of my material possessions, memories, etc. (extreme, I know – but at the time it just felt so right) left behind as I hailed that taxi, headed straight to the airport, and moved onto a new (more meaningful & resonating) journey.

So, if what’s been glorified for eons to equate happiness (fame, fortune, etc.) is not the key, what is?  

Sure, you most certainly can be financially well-off and be happy, but the happiness more than likely would not be coming from where most believe, but more so would be from being aligned, at peace with & grateful for where one is – no matter the case; and this is the key. Being happy, or at peace, does not come from outside, but from within.

The Inner Work  

Self-love, awareness, and development (the inner work) has been highlighted in both the spiritual and wellness communities as of late, and is quickly making its way into the mainstream as a ‘hot topic’ – and it couldn’t have come at a better time. It may be a trendy subject to discuss at the moment, but it is also necessary for our evolution to look within, tune into ourselves and break free of the programming and patterns we have acquired over the years.

Making time for spiritual growth goes back centuries when reflection, meditation, and breathing techniques were used regularly to attain states of clarity and bliss within oneself.  So why had mainstream media kept it from us for so long? Well, this is the kicker – the commercialized mainstream-take on ‘having it all’ may not work in attaining happiness, but it does work in keeping us enslaved to the system that we currently live in. And that’s exactly what they want; the more we are unaware of the better – and what they didn’t tell you nor want you to know is that YOU ALREADY HAVE IT ALL, WITHIN YOU – and you just need to remember, awaken & tap into it.

So, how do we go about utilizing the same tools and techniques to aid in our spiritual journey and work towards our personal happiness? Devotion, patience & practice.

Practice Exercise   

Allot yourself a minimum of 30 minutes for some “Me time”

Find a space where you can clear your mind; some place where there are no distractions, preferably in nature.  

What to Bring with You 

Notebook, pen, blanket/towel (something to put down to sit/lay on), water (always stay hydrated!), camera for documentation (memory building), and crystals (if you own any – for cleansing, charging and setting intent – more on this in later weeks!).  Nothing else, and please – try and leave all digital distractions behind (cell, tablet, etc.).

This is YOUR time for YOU; during this period nothing else matters or exists.  As our first week together, I would like to start off with the simplest and yet one of the most rewarding experiences: meditation.  

When you’ve found the perfect spot, get comfortable and situate yourself in a position where you will be able to be still and unbothered for at least half an hour.  Take in the view, and if you couldn’t make it out into the world – no worries! A quiet space alone is more than enough – be it your room, a library, etc. – just enjoy your own company.  

Moving forward, open up your notebook and start to write whatever comes to mind – free-flowing thoughts with no restraints.  After a few minutes or until you feel ready, put it away and off to the side – then close your eyes, breathe deeply, really focusing on each breath – in & out – and clear your mind.  

As thoughts begin to arise (“this is silly,”  “..what will I be eating later,” “I wonder..” etc. etc.), listen to what is being ‘said.’ – Is it purposeful? Positive?  That may not be the case starting off, but pay attention to the energy – how you FEEL – release all worries, doubts, fears, and limits and allow the thoughts to flow through, and just BE. Do not place judgment or stress on what is coming through, but take notice.

Stillness and silence here is a beautiful thing which can bring about so much magic if you solely allow. Sit and enjoy your time, breathing in the Universe and just BEING.  

Give yourself 15 minutes (that’s not much in correlation to a day’s supposed worth, right? ..and this is YOU we are speaking of, YOU DESERVE IT!).  After wrapping up some time here, new thoughts, ideas, discoveries may have been had/made – So, now – take out your notebook again, and write away!  I suggest doing this every time – prior & before – in order to see your growth not only over time, but as you step into your Self & center, and as you awaken anew.    

If you would like to experience a guided meditation to begin with, we offer a powerful one, called Healing Journey, for free so that anyone can download and enjoy. 

Until next time!

This is solely the beginning, you are blessed light and together we shall shine.

Artistic Examples Of Double Standards In Our Society That You’re Probably Guilty Of…

A double standard is the application of different sets of principles for similar situations. They may take the form of an instance in which certain concepts (often, for example, a word, phrase, social norm, or rule) are perceived as acceptable to be applied by one group of people, but are considered unacceptable—taboo—when applied by another group.

In modern society today, many of us are seeking to attain, or better yet, create equality on various levels for all. Though our attempt and intent to change the way we perceive, care for or act towards one another are evident, we are still far from achieving true equality amongst ourselves. Part of this is due to how we are approaching the situation.

Below are some images that further illustrate the double standards that we face today. Whether of gender, race, physical build, geographic location, or anything else that is typically out of our control – it is important to note that though we may be guilty of these double standards ourselves, as we take notice of them we can then create awareness around such, and expand our consciousness beyond the programming and stories set in our minds currently.

We cannot raise awareness nor work towards shifting our collective consciousness by building up one race, gender, or any one thing whilst bashing on another – as that would merely shift ‘blame’ and ultimately not provide the change we are looking for. We must take the time to reflect and realize why or what we may have been doing in order to learn and grow from that very realization & awareness.

We are being faced with the challenge of truly asking ourselves who we are. What that means is much more than trying to define ourselves by something like clothing, culture, gender etc. These are simply added aspects of our experience, but not our entire experience. The more we get caught up in these identities and illusions, the more we suffer and divide. While the push for this division is strong in media right now, it also serves as a chance to see everything we are not, so we can find out who we truly are.

It’s about self awareness, reflection, neutrality and love.

(More thoughts on this below, after the examples)

Remember, we are all magical beings, stardust.. the Universe itself living out a human experience. We experience so that we may become more aligned, in-tune and aware of our Self, and through this gained clarity we form a deeper understanding of our purpose here and an innerstanding of our connection to everyone else.

If you are reading this, take this as a light-hearted reminder to not judge, but to take notice. Whether this is in regards to others or of ourselves and our own thoughts & actions – we must remember to be loving and open. Release past programming, stories, and thoughts, and realize we are so much more than we have been led to believe – we are more than our genders, races, and all physicality..

You are the Universe; it’s pronounced ‘YOU’niverse for a reason.
