“…there exists a second psychic system of a collective, universal, and impersonal nature which is identical in all individuals.” -Carl Jung
Is there a psychic realm of thought, ideas, and imagination that is shared by all humans across space and time? Jung used the term “Collective Unconscious” which infers that there must also be a collective consciousness that individuals everywhere have the ability to tap in to. How might we learn to tune into this well-spring of creativity and personal power to bring healing to ourselves while also assisting our species in a much needed transformation to address the mounting issues of our time?
The Multiple Discovery concept describes the phenomena where, throughout history individuals around the world working independently and without knowledge of each other have made the same discovery at practically the same moment. For many years people thought it was impossible for a runner to break the 4-minute-mile. As soon as Roger Bannister did it, he gave dozens of other athletes ‘permission’ to do the same within the same year. What is apparent is that there is a collective field of thought/belief that dictates, to some degree, what is possible and these limits are continuously being expanded upon.
Vladimir Vernadsky used the term “Noosphere” to describe the sphere of human thought as a distinct realm that shapes the physical world and thus the life-forms that inhabit it.
In the theory of Vernadsky, the noosphere is the third in a succession of phases of development of the Earth, after the geosphere (inanimate matter) and the biosphere (biological life). Just as the emergence of life fundamentally transformed the geosphere, the emergence of human cognition fundamentally transforms the biosphere. -Wikipedia
With these ideas swirling through ones head in relation to the immense global problems we are facing, it is apparent that a “mind-shift” is in order. Individually and collectively we have the ability to bring about transformation and once again expand our notion of what is possible for humans and our planet. That, in essence, is core to the emerging “Unify Movement”.

Unify invites individuals around the world to “drop-in” simultaneously in moments of meditation, prayer, dance, or ceremony to strengthen the collective field and open possibilities for a gentle resolve to global tensions. We all know what it is like to walk into a room full of tension and anxiety, as pressure builds we can feel the potential for violence to break out. Likewise we know what it feels like to walk into a room that is filled with safety and love. These vibrations or emotions can not be seen yet they are very contagious and contribute greatly to what is created within a given space. When people consciously focus their mindful energy together simultaneously towards increasing the vibration for positive outcomes globally, we can alter the course of history.
The Global Coherence Initiative is an international effort that seeks to help activate the heart of humanity and promote peace, harmony and a shift in global consciousness. GCI conducts groundbreaking research on the interconnection between humanity and Earth’s magnetic fields and energetic systems. –Global Coherence Initiative Mission
There are many scientific studies currently being conducted on this emerging phenomena. Recent discoveries have shown that humans can change the pH of water through focused intention. Though small this is one of the first empirical studies that shows that we can change physical properties with our thoughts. A leading group of well-respected scientists have come together and presented a Manifesto for Post-Materialistic Science as a solution to the limitations of classical physics. Princeton University is studying the Noosphere through the Global Consciousness Project and it appears that there is more than enough evidence to encourage us to consider the possibilities for collective global moments with focused intention.
The noosphere is global, we are all in the same “room”. The vibrations of fear and violence are powerful and mostly unconscious. The antidote is a conscious, mindful strengthening of the collective field of love, healing, and transformation. Unify is not merely ethereal or mystical, it is a practical response to the situation we find ourselves in right now on the planet. Some say that humanity is doomed to self-destruct and those same people also once said humans could not break the 4-minute-mile. Possibilities are endless, the wave of consciousness and transformation is contagious. Surf’s up, it’s time to BE the change. Join us!
