Cryptocurrencies have been getting a lot of publicity lately, especially Bitcoin. I’m not going to go into what a cryptocurrency is, so you can read an intro about it here, if you’re not familiar.
A lot of dramatic political events and world events have also been happening recently, which you’re probably aware of, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year or so (think Donald Trump, North Korean missiles, ISIS, etc).
About Paper Money and Stocks
Let’s think about stocks and fiat currency first. I’m no expert on economical or financial matters, so please bare with me and my layman’s knowledge on the matters.
The money that rules all of our societies in modern life, is a fiat currency. It means that it is a currency which has no intrinsic value, unlike other currencies such as gold (which is a rare and precious metal). The value of this type of currency comes from our conscious belief that it is valuable.
Paper money is a fiat currency because it has no intrinsic value; it is just paper. So why is it valuable? Because we believe it has value; we give paper money its value solely by collectively believing and agreeing that it is valuable.
It’s as if our conscious mental energy/beliefs are given a physical representation as paper money. What is that law in psychics, again? That energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed. Well, with fiat currency, our conscious energy is represented in a physical form, as “valuable” paper money.
The stock market works the same way. One thing that gives a stock its value, are the investors’ beliefs that the stock/company is valuable. Investor Jimmy thinks “Oh man, this stock is a great investment because the value is gonna go up sometime in the future, and I’ll make some money”. So investor Jimmy buys the stocks, with the belief that the value will increase. If lots of investor’s are buying these stocks, the stock value increases.
Once investors think the stock is going to decrease in value, they sell, in order to get their money back before the stock value drops too low. When people sell the stock, it’s as if they are consciously choosing to believe that the stock is no longer valuable, they are opting out and putting their belief back into the fiat currency that they spent to buy the stock in the first place. The flow of fiat money to buy or sell stocks is like a metaphorical representation of our changing conscious beliefs.
Of course this is an oversimplified way of how the stock market. As I said, I’m not by any means an expert in this area.
How are cyptocurrencies and current world events related?
So back to cryptocurrencies. They don’t have any centralized bank or government, unlike our paper money, which is controlled by central banks/the government. The government has the ability print more money, and the more they print, the lower the value our paper money has.
With all the volatility happening in the world right now, I think people are starting to question their governments’ true interests and intentions. People are waking up to the lies and the state of control that the governments seem to have us locked into, and gradually, more and more people are losing their trust in the governments. Think Trump and his denying of climate change. Who’s interests does he really have in heart? The planet’s, or the rich oil companies who will lose their profits if we switch to a free/renewable energy source?
The collective’s awakening and unhappiness in face of the grim state of our world and it’s governments, to me, is related to what is happening with cryptocurrencies. As more and more people are losing trust in their governments, they are consciously and/or subconsciously finding ways to resist the government’s lies and their attempts to keep us controlled.
By increasingly transferring fiat money into bitcoin, it’s as if the collective is symbolically choosing to misplace their trust and belief in the government, and in the value of fiat currency. And instead, putting that conscious belief into a source of money which is decentralized and not controlled by anyone. They are buying cryptocurrencies because they believe that it’s valuable, and the way of the future. Governments and centralized banks will gradually lose their influence as cryptocurrenicies gain more collective support.
How does this relate to the 5D shift?
One of my beliefs is that we are collectively, as a human race, shifting into a more interconnected, freer and heart-based consciousness (shifting into 5D consciousness). I’m not gonna go into what that means now, you can read about that elsewhere. Part of this shift is the breaking down of fear/control based institutions such as the governments, and others who are influencing and pulling the strings in our society.
I believe that the collapse of fiat currency and centralized governments is an important step toward the shift to 5D consciousness. We need to be free of the government, we need to be free of them controlling us, so we can all be empowered human beings making our own decisions, rather than blind sheep or slaves lead by the government.
I’m not saying that cryptocurrencies are the answer that will save all of humanity from the government’s control. Or that a cryptocurrency based society is better than a fiat currency based society. All I’m saying is that this recent popularity in bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies is a sign of the collectives’ shift in beliefs, which may or may not eventually lead to the collapse of centralized banks, and controlling government structures.
So to me, this trend is step in the right direction for our own freedom from the government. I don’t know much about cryptocurrencies, how they were created, where the idea came from, or the intention behind them. I’ve even heard that some people believe cryptocurrencies were created by AI to control humanity, that it came from aliens, and lots of other wild theories, but I honestly don’t know the truth. So I’ll leave that discussion for another time.
