CREATE. INSPIRE. EVOLVE. A real world interactive game to help shift consciousness. Creating conscious media and a global team of Shifters and Paradigm Shift Communities. -- Hacking the Matrix with Love --
Shifters earn Shift Points in exchange for successfully creating Quest Journals and Conscious Articles, along with other game related tasks and activities. Shift Points can be exchanged for Shift Buttons once the Team Patreon reaches beyond the 1111 milestone.
This is an interactive show where we explore the phenomenon of synchronistic numbers. Many people see them in their daily lives, they live by them, they interpret them. Together we will explore what the numbers mean to us and employ the scientific method to gather information to help bring tangibility to the discussion of the synchronistic numbers. We aspire to help the whole world understand what may be occurring. You'll be able to tune in to watch the broadcast or join us via a live Google Hangouts video chat that will allow you to participate in the broadcast and add to the discussion. A link to join the online Hangouts will be released right before each scheduled broadcast.
Our Collective Goals:
Build a survey to collect data and identify synchronistic number sighting phenomenon occurrences being experienced by individuals
Review instances when sightings happen
Identify patterns, meanings, and messages within the repeating numbers sequence sightings
Mindfully review the proportional statistical odds to have seen the repeating numbers and the rate in which we feel we significantly see them appear to us
Reach out to a University Psychology department to help scientifically report a study after our case has been built and information has been gathered
Ultimate Goal: is to scientifically prove or disprove the synchronistic number phenomenon is occurring
Arriving in the city is a daunting prospect for a country boy like me but I persevere and park the car in a space that seemed to be waiting for me, thankyou parking angel. I walk with my bag strap covered in shift badges, buttons as they are known across the pond as we say here, anyways, I've got my light guardian crystal on a twine around my neck, I'm wrapped up warm, have a flask of herbal tea and ready to go give free hugs to whoever would like one, and see who would like to connect, see what happens when you put one foot in front of the other, I give myself a target of one in an hour.
Walking down the steps into what is locally known as the Bearpit, it's a landmark in the centre of Bristol that connects pedestrians up with the many routes from one place to another, underpasses link together into a roughly circular space, steps or ramps lead down into this place that used to be a dark and dank drug infested place for the homeless and addicted to hang out and deal and use.
It wasn't unusual for there to be a lot of junk, litter and needles and all sorts of detritus down there, it smelt, but not anymore, it's a colourful place, full of street art, depicting conscious themes, the austerity measures brought in by the government to try to tighten our pursestrings, overstretched and broken by the bankers, that's the nicest and only thing I'm going to say about that whole mess.
So right away, I'm nervous, not sure where to go, stand, be, I make my way down into one of the tunnels thinking maybe I ought to go somewhere more open, into the town centre shops, but no. I see someones backpack and it's been left there, back in the tunnel i walked through there was a pile of sleeping bags, was there someone in there, under there, who knows but now there's a face to see.
I meet Kelly, wearing surprisingly but i love the connection the same colour scheme as me, black and red, and we connect, and talk, she sings me a song, about homelessness and loss and even though it's a little strange to be here, she asks me if I am living on the streets, taking time to ask after my wellbeing, i offer her some of my herbal tea, maybe she'll like it, at least it's hot and freshly made.
Her boyfriend comes back, street hair cut, talking about the police who are on their way, confiscating alcohol as it's not allowed in this area, to be consumed or carried, he's also got drugs but that's the no win situation for the homeless, to keep warm and avoid the pain of the cold, of the lack of somewhere to be, something to do, they use, or sell, or drink or all three, and so does he, but not now.
We're talking for a while, it feels right to leave now and soon there's a little group of them together, as I stand in the middle of the circle, Free Hugs Sign out and proud above my head. My light guardian crystal is around my neck, glowing and changing colour as I have a special one that goes through the chakra colours and to golden and white and pinky purple and basically it's incredible and fun.
I have been stood there, it's getting cold now, for thirty seconds, when I'm hugged right away, connecting to folks, as each person makes their way to work, from an art class is someone I met before, what a great connection, to see her face and the magic of the synchronicity, the feeling is wonderful, a quick hello and wish her well, and the next person, and the next, waiting for friends, off to work.
Coming from a bar, heading to a club, going home from work, carrying shopping, going back to make food, cycling through, two kids on drift trikes, skateboarders, walkers, people using the cafe that is within a double decker bus called Bearittos, because of the bearpit, I chat to the guy behind the counter but I ate very well before I left so I don't buy anything. The food looks good though and hot.
I get a lot of hugs, well over my quota of hope, of one in the hour I planned to be there, it's gone quickly, I want to do this again, maybe this is my new friday night now, we will see what happens.
You are important. You are beautiful. Everything that you do matters.
Here is some video I filmed during my Shiftivsm downtown during a street festival in my city of London, Ontario, Canada to do some Inspirational Conscious Flowetry on the spot to help spark the spirit and accelerate the shift. Using the power of spoken word and sound to hack the matrix with love.
Of course this clip is only a fraction of the time I spent on the street. Alot of it was also just sharing compliments with people walking by and reminding them that they are loved. As part of my tactics I had my Free Hugs sign placed near by, and when people came up and talked to me and got a Free Hug I would also give them a Shift Button to connect them with the community and ongoing story and also our local Paradigm Shift London meet ups. Often times when people were walking by I would just invite them to remind their friends that they care about them and prompt them to hug their friends right there on the spot - and they did! It was an awesome experience and I look forward to playing around more with its potential
Leading up to doing the flowetry on the mic this it took alot of practice and courage to make it happen - but I am glad I did. And now having since done it and earned that new confidence I now have additional new abilities unlocked as a Shifter which I will continue to use to help shift the paradigms and inspire others how I can through the power of the heart and the magic of art.
Prior to doing the conscious flowetry I was also doing my Mystic Spiderman stuff for quite awhile, spinning my Light Saber and doing Free Hugs and Jedi stuff and sharing Shift Buttons and just talking to people and making meaningful connections. All of this primarily took place off camera but a few other people snapped some pictures which was cool. Doing it off camera was important for me because it allowed me to practice recording it first and foremost with my heart and focusing more on the interactions with the people I met. It was really awesome when I connected with some younger kids and invited them to help me out with the Free Hugs while we worked together as a team, while reminding them that the most important super power that each one of us has is the power of the heart. More and more people are slowly beginning to cross paths and hear about Mystic Spiderman within our city as we are all continue to remember that even though Mystic Spiderman may exist as an icon - the message is that you don't need to dress like a superhero to be one - because you already are one as much as you choose to be.
You can do this where you are too. How will you bring the Shift to the streets of your city?
Rebirth Babylon from Within.
Remember, little things make the bigger difference.
Thank you for your support in helping us bring this shift to the streets.

The other day I went to the near by campus to do some Shiftivism to open some portals, hack the matrix with love, connect with people, and help accelerate the shift.
While there I set up with a simple and super effective tactic that I have used many times. Basically I just found a place where I had a good line of sight of people and there wasnt to much traffic, and then made a little art display out of some Shift Buttons, wire wraps, Light Guardian Crystals, and some conscious art from some friends. Then I put a Free Hugs sign next to me, sat down, started doing wire wrapping, sent out my intention field, and allowed people to walk up to me.
Within the time I was there I had numerous meaningful interactions and even gave out several of the laminated Free Hugs signs to others so that they could continue to ripple the inspiration. I also mentioned to many of the people about our local Paradigm Shift London Open-minded Discussion and Meditation meet ups that we have and invited them to that too. (Fridays, 7-9pm, at The Ground Up Cafe, 717 Richmond St, London, Ontario, Canada.)
While I was there I did a short live facebook broadcast documenting the experience and explaining more - plus got some genuine reactions and free hugs on camera too!
I continued doing this for at least an hour with much success. Each person who I connected with who received a Shift Button now has the opportunity to connect to the Paradigm Shift Central website, explore the conscious media, be involved with the community and will perhaps be inspired to continue exploring ongoing conscious themes. Case and point, one guy I ran into was a guy I ran into doing the same thing 5 years ago. He told me that after he ran into me he started practicing lucid dreaming! So you never know how far the ripples will go!
So after I packed up my things I walked around to the near by concert playing on the hill as part of the orientation week celebrations. I choose to chill out on the hill by myself while dancing with my light saber and to just be me and have fun doing what I enjoy. The funny thing is that I was also doing it in a way that others who would be walking by would see me too, which would also help create this ongoing narrative for them of realizing that there are Jedi in town, or at the very least to just see someone expressing themselves in a way not normally seen. Numerous people commented and took pictures and probably snap chatted me or something :P All and all just I was just doing my thing while also helping bring a bit more magic into the world that will go a long way.
Here is a short facebook live video of me doing light saber dancing. Later on in the evening off camera I got way more into it.
It is my intention that simply by sharing this story it helps continue to inspire others to take actions in similar ways where they are to help accelerate the shift. Use the power of art and expression to help make a difference! See what happens when you sit or stand somewhere with a free hugs sign! See what happens when you dance in public! Be the light. Aspire to inspire.

For the past several years I have always made it my mission to get out on Canada Day to do some Shiftivism. (Shiftivism: Intentional acts of compassion and creativity to help assist with the shift in consciousness.) Each year, here in London, Ontario, Canada, I have commonly gone to Harris Park down by the river to attend the fireworks display that happens at 10pm. Throughout the day there are community events and thus there is a seemingly endless stream of people coming and going. It is an obvious prime opportunity to spark synchronicity, connect with people, and plant conscious seeds.
This year is Canada's 150th year since it has been recognized as an independent nation. But of course, Canada Day is not all fireworks and celebration for everyone. In fact it is widely recognized as being a very polarizing day for many people. There is a lot of trauma and anguish within our history specifically related to our relationships with aboriginal people and their culture over the years. (Canada may be 150, but the aboriginals have been here well over 16 000 years.) I do not deny any of trauma and hardship, but in the midst of our imperfect history, I focus on the fact that the Canada we have today is a great opportunity to build from, heal through, and a beautiful place to help set an example for others in the world to see. One in which we can move forward into with deeper understanding, compassion, and an integrated innate spiritual awareness that the aboriginals carry and eagerly share with the rest of Canadian culture as a whole. I am very proud to be human - and I am equally proud to be in Canada amongst native traditions and spiritual teachings. I am proud and grateful to be in a place I have the privilege to be able to play, celebrate, and help co-create a better world in ways that will reach far and wide.
So with that said, I packed up my gear and at about 8pm I set off on my adventure to head downtown while the sun while still up. Although this year I had to modify my tactics because I was in the current process of getting over the tail end of a basic cold. Normally my primary tactic would be to stand in a spot with a Free Hugs sign and focus on that, but this year I decided to focus on creating a little sacred space next to the main path to allow people to come up to me. My focus wasn't primarily on Free Hugs in the same way, but it would still be a potent portal for and synchronicity.
Within my set up I would sit down on my hoverboard while doing some crystal wire wrapping and laid out some free Shift Buttons to give as gifts (buttons with conscious symbols on them and link people back to the Paradigm Shift Central project via the website on the button to help build the team and share our ongoing conscious media ripple the inspiration), some Free Hugs Signs (which I would give to people when they asked for a hug, since I was not at full hugging capacity myself), some Light Crystals I made for people to play with and purchase if they wished, the magic light Pinecone Crystal as a centre peace to create the setting and amplify the magic, my Light Saber (which I would be spinning later), and my tarot card deck which I would use to offer some people a reading if they were interested, and my singing bowl that I would use to play here and there.
Before I even got set up I made a note of following my intuition and telempathy to locate connect with a few people I met along the way. For example, once at the park I saw a very cute older couple hanging in a hammock from a tree that they rigged up themselves. It instantly reminded me of the time my partner and I spent in a hammock the past weekend at the Om Festival. So I went up and talked to them, complimented them on their hammock, and instantly got into some conscious conversation. They told me about their travels and how the hammock had been with them all over the world. I gave them some Shift Buttons as a gift and they asked me about what I do. I explained to them that I have gotten to the point in my life where my 'job' is to help shift consciousness, creating conscious media, and build community. They both noticed my Light Crystal I was wearing, and coincidently enough the husband told me that back in the day he made his own magical staff that would light up - but only when the holder was wearing a special ring to connect the circuit. The synchronicity between our creations was really inspiring. Perhaps someday I will get to see that staff myself. Before I went on my way I invited and told them about the local Paradigm Shift London open-minded discussion and meditation meet ups we have, every Friday 7-9pm at the Ground Up Vegan Cafe, 717 Richmond St. They smiled and said they looked forward to coming ouy and connecting again. I thanked them, said Happy Canada Day, and was on my way to set up.
Just for the fun of it, I decided to set up on the path right across from my new hammock friends. I could see them watching me from a distance later on as we waved to each other with a smile once I was set up. I always think that when I do things like this, I do it as a shared experience, and I wanted them to be a part of it too - simply by observing and smiling along.
And so, with the sun having just set I created my sacred space, sat down, and took a breath. Having done variations of many Shiftivism tactics over the years I never had a doubt in my mind as to whether it would work. I knew that by me being there it created and opened a portal for the synchronicity to occur. I put out the intention, I arrived, I created, and I followed through.
It was not long until one by one some people would stop along the path as the colour changing Pinecone Crystal caught their attention from a distance. The first person who came up to me was a boy no older than 11 years old. Not surprisingly enough, he recognized the Eye of Horus button right away. He asked about it and I told him that simply put it is a symbol for awareness. About us waking up within the dream. He grabbed that one and I invited him to grab another one to give to a friend. He took a look at the Light Crystals, complimented them, said thank you, and
then was on his way.
(*Imagine a picture of me sitting and smiling here. A friend of mine took a picture of me, but I will add it to this entry later once she has sent it to me.)
Only moments after others would come up and chat with me. Soon I started to run into people I knew - and people who knew me. "Hey its the Free Hugs guy! :D" With enough Shift Buttons on me to share, small groups of people came up and would chat. They would ask about the buttons, and some would say things like "Woah! I love the geometry!" or some would literally say "Hey! Sacred geometry buttons!" to which I would reply "You know it ;)". Through the act of giving and gifting we create a powerful interaction with others and a lasting impression of compassion. And the exciting part as per usual, is that the gift goes far beyond just the Shift Button itself. (I often refer to Shift Buttons as magic buttons when sharing them with people on the spot - because they literally are.) "There is a website on the button that you can check out, its an interactive project me and my friends have been doing for awhile to help change the world." "Awesome Ill check it out! Thanks!".
Within my set up I also had little a sign with some "pay what you wish' prices listed on it for some of the items and the tarot reading. Though the majority of the Shift Buttons were given out for free as intended, there were several people who were happy to donate in return. Later on this money would play another part in the story.
Over the next hour these patterns of interaction would continue. Each one similar yet unique. Some people would ask about the Free Hugs, but due to my cold I told them that if they wanted they could have the Free Hugs Sign (which is laminated and meant to last). While passing the sign on to them I would reminder them "with great hugs comes great opportunity." They would smile and be on their way.
Eventually while I was there a couple and their young girl came up to me and asked for a Tarot reading. Awesomely enough the man knew who I was because I had given him a flower of life Shift Button yeaaaars ago during a previous Free Hugs mission. And the super cool part is that he was wearing it on the hat that he had on in that moment! He told me that to him it meant something. Like a good luck charm. It represented something more. Hope perhaps. And so, it was his partner who was interested in the Tarot Reading, so they sat down, and I explained to her about how tarot cards work through the power of synchronicity as a way for the universe to communicate to ourselves - and to share with us what we need to hear in that moment. I showed her how to charge the deck and she pulled a card. The card she chose was The Chariot - a powerful card about taking action in our life and rising above old patterns and base nature. A card that I feel is important for all of us to draw at a time. After the reading she thanked me and gave me 5 dollars. I thanked them again and reminded them of the local Paradigm Shift London meet up and told them to just check the Team Map on the website for the local time and place if they needed to double check.
(Being able to simple direct people to the Team Map for the local meet up info for their Paradigm Shift Community is a potent tactical ability for all of us to use. This way you dont have to worry about handing out an extra pamphlet or anything. The vision I have is it that as more and more Paradigm Shift Communities become activated within the game and their local meet up info is included in the Team Map, that this will increase the potency of the Shift Buttons for people - helping accelerate the ability for people to synchronize. Give someone a button, tell them to check the Team Map for your location and meet up, and there it is. Simple and effective.)
As the twilight soon became night time, it was getting close to when the fireworks would begin. More people came up here and there as the patterns continued to naturally unfold. Connecting with family, adults, and children alike. I did not keep track of how many Shift Buttons I had given out, but it was indeed plenty. Just by me being there I had connected with dozens and dozens of people within a short amount of time. I was grateful to be able to create this space and share this experience with others. As per usual, I have no real idea of knowing just how far my simple actions would ripple from that night. But thats the magic of it all. Casting our actions with intention, and allowing the ripples to unfold as they may. Consciousness doing what it can to help wake itself up. Awakening within the dream.
In that moment I begin to hear from a distance the Canadian national anthem playing from one of the stages and the crowds of people sing along. As I sit there and listen I begin to play my singing bowl and close my eyes as I meditate and imagine a bubble of white light expanding from my heart. I am grateful.
And then, like the thunderous sound of a drum, a celebratory ignition of colour lights up the sky like something out of a dream - the fireworks begin. In this moment I took time for myself to stand up and grab my light saber. With hundreds of people spread out across the grass behind me, I ignited my blade and began to practice spinning. In the moment I choose to record a couple minutes of it to share. I spun my blade with flow as the psychedelic colours exploded behind me. In that moment I was by myself and with everyone all at the same time. Though it was not the forefront of my focus - no doubt hundreds of people in the grass would have indirectly been seeing and watching me spin my saber as a pleasant addition to the fireworks spectacle. Shortly upon igniting my saber I could hear a few voices from the crowd "Its a Jedi!". In that moment being able to spin my saber was my meditation. A moment of reflection and celebration for us as humans and dreamers within the dream. Reflecting on where we have been, what we have done, who we are now, where we are going, and who we are becoming. Bringing the vision of the past, present, and future in to one moment through the magic of dance and flow.
Its interesting to think that though many people who saw me would not be people who would come and talk to me in that moment - at the very least for some of them (primarily the younger children) they would know - and remember - that there is a Jedi here in London. A Light Guardian.
In many ways me dancing was also me bringing back the free-spirtedness I still carry with me from the magic of the Om Festival. To be able to continuing to carry and bring that magic back into babylon. To rebirth the heart of babylon from within through the magic of expression, compassion, and creativity. This is and always has been a part of my / our mission.
I stopped recording on my camera after only a couple minutes but I danced for many more. The fireworks would continue for a good amount of time. At least 30+ minutes. "Oooo" and "ahhh"s as I looked back on the crowd to see all of these faces mesmerized by the magic in this moment. I was grateful - to see it all, and to be a part of it. Igniting the fireworks of our hearts.
After the fireworks concluded, the crowd left their spots on the grass as they began to make their way out the park. Many of them in a bit of a rush to be able to beat large traffic of the crowds. Compared to when I first set up, the amount of traffic at this point was tremendous. Hundreds upon hundreds were walking along the paths here I was set up. Of course many of whom would have the chance to walk past me and clearly see the Free Hugs sign. Here and there I would here comments from passer bys. "Free Hugs. Thats cute :)", and the odd "Free Hugs? That's weird." To both I simply replied with "Happy Canada Day :)". Undeniably, many would carry even that simple observation home with them. When some people would take notice to the sign I would point out to them that they were welcome to have a Free Shift Button too. Just like before many came up and took the time to look at the buttons and choose one or a couple to share. Some people I never got to directly talk to them much or even remind them about the website. But I trust that when the time is right they will see the website and be called to check it out themselves. As a side note - I always think about how in some cases sometimes a Shift Button may end up somewhere, like in the possession of a kid, and it wont be until perhaps years later that they finally see and check the Paradigm Shift Central website mentioned on it. And yet, even still, in that moment, it will be the right time for them. Because helping 'unplug people from the matrix' and helping 'wake people up within the dream' is something that must be done softly. And I trust that everyone will awaken to many of the common realizations about the nature of this reality that we all share within at some point - be it in this life time or another. We are all connected. We have more potential to create than we have been lead to believe. And we are multi-dimensional beings by nature. My mission is to not always directly tell people these ideas - but rather to help create a path for them to remember these ideas for themselves. And that is why Shiftiivsm is so important, so simple, and so powerful. Creating habits of compassion and open mindedness. Thinking seven generations ahead - just as the aboriginals have taught us. The ripples go farther than we may ever know… and that's what makes it so beautiful.
As the crowd continued to flow for the next half hour I continued to connect with many more people. Several of which I invited to take a Free Hugs sign since they asked about it. Even just that act alone is so potent. Being able to help activate more and more Free Hugs carriers in our city and beyond. Many of them will carry the signs with them in their backpacks and take them with them where ever they go. One simple act of Shiftiivsm in turn helps activate another wave of new Shifters.
With some random bonus fireworks still going off in the distance, the crowds emptied out of the park. Soon enough I was the last person there, minus two other people behind me. These last two people had stayed awhile longer to just lay in the grass and look at the stars together. One of them came up to me to see what I was up to. And of course, as a holographic reflection of the synchronicity of the whole night, he was a person who was totally into the shift in consciousness as well. I complimented him on his mala bead necklace. He told me that he just moved to London from Hamilton, so I invited him out to our local meet up and he was excited to check it out. As he was choosing a Shift Button to pick his other friend came up, who happened to be someone I knew who had come out to Paradigm Shift London in the past. She agreed that he would totally enjoy coming out. We smiled, reflected on the humour of us new wave hippies always managing to find each other, thanked one another, and were on our way.
With the smoke lingering from the fireworks, and the light shining through the trees, a teepee stands erected at a distance. In this moment I am reminded of the aboriginal teachings and our shared mission to unite and heal the heart of all humans. To stand together as mother earth, for mother earth. With another deep breathe, I exhale. Now that I was officially the only person in the park that I could see, I packed up. I put away my Shift Buttons, the Free Hugs Signs, the magic Pinecone Crystal, and my Tarot Cards. I grabbed my light saber, and jumped on my hoverboard. I took in the fresh air as I spun my saber for fun while floating on the path. But even though the fireworks were done - my night of Shiftivism was not completely over…
As I left the park I made my way back out to Richmond St - the main street downtown that was now full with young adults traveling between the various bars and destinations. My energy at this point was getting tired, so I took some time to slow down and rest. In a normal situation I would naturally pull out a Free Hugs sign and do my thing with my satchel of Shift Buttons. But this time I instead decided that I felt more just like spinning my light saber on the street corner - which in itself is still a form of Shiftivsm. Simply bringing creativity to the streets for others to see. Soon enough I synched up with my good buddy Spinny who was playing his didgeridoo on the corner again. Over the years him and I have crossed paths many times. I asked him if it would be cool if I spun my saber next to him while he played. I leaned up a Free Hugs sign on my backpack that way so people could still see it and I would still give out the odd hug here and there (while still letting people know that I was just getting over a cold, but obviously no one really cared anyways.)
For the next hour or so I continued to get into my flow and did a short live broadcast while I did. Spinning the saber and just allowing people to see. "Woah that guy's got a light saber! Cool!". And as simple as it is, for some it will still leave an impression. Perhaps it will inspire them to push their own boundaries of creativity. Perhaps they will see me again later on and remember that I was that guy with the light saber. In that moment I was simply being me. A literal Light Guardian. A beacon. A living and breathing symbol of something more. In many ways what I was doing was just an ongoing continuation of the ongoing story I have been weaving as a Shifter in my local city for years by simply making myself seen and creating the invitation for people to know of me, connect with me, and in turn the local Paradigm Shift London community and beyond.
(The above video quality is low because the live video did not save to my cameras properly. So I had to download and re-upload to youtube.)
While I was spinning there were only a handful of people who directly came up and talked to me or asked for a free hug. I'm pretty sure a few people Snap Chatted me too :P. Interestingly enough, amidst the synchronicties, a cool middle aged man came up for a hug and was really into what I was doing. I gave him a Shift Button and told him that it is an interactive project to help expand consciousness. At which point he openly told me that he was a Free Mason and I was basically like "ya , so you know what I'm talking about then." At which point he shook my hand using the super secret magic Free Mason handshake that I intuitively remembered from years back from when a friend showed me. Maybe I didn't even do it right, but oh well. :P I invited him to the meet up and he said he would come check it out.
Now as a side note - what's interesting in all of this is that in all the years that I have done all of my Paradigm Shift London stuff in my city, I have never fully met any Free Masons other then a couple buddies from back in the day who joined up with them at the time. As it turns out there is quite a bit of Free Mason stuff in London - much of which I know is because of the laylines of the land. London has some very powerful energy here, and the Free Masons are aware of this awell when they helped build it in its foundation and ongoing years. To me I was always curious about meeting the Free Massosn at some point - because I figured given the energy I put out that I would naturally cross paths with them eventually. Now as for my opinion on them - simply put I don't mind them. I think that in a very simple way a lot of what the Free Masons are traditionally about about (beyond any crazy stuff you could assume) is just helping build community, helping people, and assisting within the Shift. And then within their group there are layers, within which they are also well aware of the multi-dimensional nature of this reality, and are interested in things like the power of the mind, our interconnectedness, esoteric knowledge, and so forth.
What's interesting - and not to side track to far from the core of this Quest Journal - but way way back I had always been aware of the Free Masons and how what I was doing was something that would probably be of interest to them. But in the back of my mind I also had this narrative that perhaps within my soul contract I kinda said to the Free Masons "Look, I'm gonna do a bunch of stuff. Just keep a distance and let me do what I need to do, and then when the time is right we can cross paths." Which again - is why I found it interesting that literally up until that moment I hadn't really had any direct contact with any local Masons. I don't see them as being an elite group or anything like that. They are just people, and I would be curious to sit down and talk to any of them as much as I would any of you. Furthermore, just to expand upon things a bit further within the bigger mythos, I have felt within the background of my soul narrative that it is possible that in past lives I have myself in some ways had my own connections to esoteric orders. Things like the Templars, for example. Even going back to legends of King Arthur, Knights of the Round Table, Merlin, and so forth. Many of which you can see forms of appearing within what we do through the Paradigm Shift Central project today, (Team Building Circles = Round Table, etc etc.) But for me it was always just something that was natural. And so, I had this idea that as I step through the mystery of my own remembrance I feel that in some way what I have come here to create with Paradigm Shift Central was kind of like me saying "Okay - heres the plan. I am going to help carry some of this esoteric knowledge with me into the present day and help weave it back into culture. But I am going to do it in a way that is different. A way that is more accessible, grounded, and modern. I am going to do things in a way that Free Masons or Templars would never be able to. Something new, and yet ancient. It will be its own thing, but it will reflect the objectives of consciousness as a whole with the intentions of helping assist with the Shift and our journey of self-awareness and remembrance within this reality." And so, with that said, I just thought it was interesting that after all this time I finally ran into a Free Mason doing Free Hugs (though I honestly probably have run into other ones and maybe didn't fully know it at the time.) In all reality maybe I wont see him again, I really don't know. It's not a huge deal, I just think its interesting. And as I said, I am more interested in the opportunity to learn from one another as much as I am interested in learning amongst all of us.
As the clock ticked on past midnight I continued my Light Saber flow for awhile longer and gave out only a handful of Shift Buttons. As my body began to yearn for rest, I felt accomplished in what I had done that night and began to get ready to head home. My friend Spinny would continue playing for the rest of the night, bringing much needed music to the street. Before I left I took a 5 from my pocket that had been given to me earlier from the Tarot reading and gave it to Spinny as I thanked him, fist bumped, and went on my way.
Only moments later around the corner, I hoverboarded past another fellow playing his guitar who I had met awhile back. I stopped, reached into my pocket again, pulled out another 5 given to me by someone for some Shift Buttons earlier, and thanked him as well. He told me he remembered me because I gave him a Shift Button awhile back. Similar to before - he told me that he still carries the button with him as an amulet of good energy. I smile as he says this. We chat for awhile longer about life and the world and agree that art and compassion is an important key in helping create a brighter future. I offer him another Shift Button, he puts it on his jacket, we thank each other again, and I ride off down the street on my way home.
Countless Free Shift Buttons and smiles shared. Celebrations and conversations had. Connections made. Seeds planted. And thus, new realities and timelines activated.
Shift Mission accomplished.
Thank you for reading this Quest Journal. As always it is my intention that in doing so it helps share the excitement as well as the examples of how these are simple techniques that any of us can replicate, modify, and do anywhere and everywhere we are.
Whether you have Shift Buttons or otherwise - there are endless ways to engage in Shiftiivsm. I look forward to hearing more about your adventures through the Quest Journals you share.
For those who would like to get some Shift Buttons to use where they are, they are easily available for the Team Patreon supporters when you add your support as a monthly micro donation and in return get your Shifter Booster Kit with Shift Buttons and Free Hugs signs. You can add your support for the team and the ongoing evolution of the project as a whole any time at www.patreon.com/BrendonCulliton
As a bonus to the theme of this Quest Journals here is a the Free Hugs and fireworks video to enjoy that I made from Canada Day 2016 that is still very relevant.
Thank you again, and as always, thank you for carrying the Shift with you.
Recently I had the honour of being welcomed back as a featured guest on our friend Paul Boggie's podcast The Way Of. Sidenote: Paul began the podcast back in 2016 after being inspired by Paradigm Shift Central!
Within the broadcast I got to share more about some of the things I actively do to help shift consciousness and inspire others. Such as details about the Free Hugs tactics, hacking the matrix with love, activating our avatar super hero / jedi (s)elves, my Mystic Spiderman identity, how synchronicity works, and creating digital and physical conscious community!
I hope this broadcast helps inspire more and more of us to continue living and being the change we wish to see.
Inspired to be back home once again, through the Om Festival we transcend. Another beautiful year of making memories and making friends. Connecting as eternal kin. Through the forest of the Zen. Which we bring to the dance floor. As we explore. The infinite doors. Of perception and visions within. Bringing forth the loving extensions. Through Shift Buttons and Free Hugs. Building the team of love.Light Guardians. Shifters. Heartists. Jedi. Unite. Through the side Quests of celebration. Rejuvenation. Within this nation. Of the heart and mind. Forested through time. Out of the fields we grow and dance to the truest rhythm we know. Sunset sunrise again. My friend. Out of the forest we return. With new gifts in hand. More love in our cup. To share with the world. Through the infinite dance. Of this divine remembrance. Of the Elf within the Self. And whispered ethos. Of transmuted egos. Activated avatars. Of the stars. Bad ass captains amongst captains. While we play to the delicate ways. In which the rain kisses our skin. While we dance from within. To the cosmic beat of the drums. Around the fire as one. Remembering where it had once all begun.
And so as the festival loves on, through out our dream and actions. Because everything will be seen. And just as it seems. Your thoughts manifest within the steams. Of consciousness. The conscious us. Collective hive mind. Now is the time. To bring forth the new rhymes. To help us re-mind. And re-wind. Previous beliefs and concepts of time. So that we can practice. How to match this. Eternal frequency. Of the trees. Rings within rings. Sweet branches are we. Of light on the path. Here to heal the past. And create a future with our art. With our heart. As we spiral out. On the arm of a Galaxy. So we can truly see. The dance we have come to be. A part of. Connected above. And below. With the dirt on our feet. A well earned badge and a treat. That's oh so neat. So let us continue this beat. Back into the heart of Babylon where we sing our songs, as heartists of this cosmic eschaton.
The above flowetry is something that I was inspired to write on my car ride home from the Om Festival 2017. (www.solsticegathering.ca) This was my fourth year attending this beautiful transformational festival that takes place in a magical forest only a few hours away from my home in Ontario, Canada. As with many transformational festivals, Om is a gathering of inspired souls seeking to explore, celebrate, share, and connect. Every year that I have been has helped provide me with ongoing inspiration that I in turn seek to ripple out into every aspect of my life. My art. Deeper connections with friends and family. Further vigilance to help be an carrier of the Shift. And further embodied within my own identity as a bridge, a Light Guardian, and a captain amongst captains.
At Om there is an endless amount of things to spark your spirit. Workshops. Activated dance floors. Delicious food. Muddy paths. Warm tea. Entrancing fire pits. Tribal drumming. Important space holding. Promoted reminders of consent (sexual and non sexual alike). Gorgeous sunsets. Open fields. Fire spinning. Psychedelic connections. An amazing view of the stars. A pond for skinny dipping. Fireflies at night. Free Hugs! Magical trails of mystery. New friends around each bend. Music bass that will vibrate your body from the inside out. Deep compassion. And intention. Lots and lots of intention.
Juxtaposed to my experiences at Lucidity Festival where I have attended for the past 5 years as an active archivist where I am filming the Journey to Lucidity movies (http://live.paradigmshiftcentral.com/movies) and experiencing the festival at the same time - Om is an opportunity for me to practice being deeply present in the moments without always having the obligation of needing to film. Rather, I can focus on documenting the experience with my heart first and foremost. For the past 4 years that I have been there I have practiced documenting the festival experience in various ways with the intention to help share with others a look into the magic that the festival is and represents within this life experience as a whole.
Below is a raw 27 minute one shot take video that I recorded within my final hours of my experience from this year as just a way to reflect in the moment and share some of the ideas and magic that game forth through the weekend. Beyond this video though I still have the intention to go back to footage I have shot from previous years to create future videos to continue to help share.
For myself and many others, Om and any other transformational festival experience, has been life changing. It has been a safe space for me to explore my own consciousness and evolve my relationship with myself and others. Each year has been uniquely different. And each year has been uniquely valuable. In 2016 I went there with a strong intention of creating a sacred ceremony for myself with 5g of sacred mushrooms, AND to be able to document the experience too. That video is currently online to watch aswell at https://youtu.be/c1leKezsYro
***I have to stop writing for the time being due to some chores that I have to do. But it is my intention to return to this Quest Journal and add to it further. ****
The climate in the community is mixed. The political establishment has many worried about the future and fearful for their human rights.
After all is said and done, Donald Trump calls us to represent our Higher self. We must embody the best of who we are at this time. We need to unify as one human family. This is something we can use to come together, especially when we extend the hand of understanding.
It is time to sound the trumpet and come together as a holy chorus as one voice.
Do not react out of fear, breath and open the heart space. This is not a time to fight among our sisters and our brothers. It is a time to flex our spiritual muscles and heal the human race.
Consciousness is elevated. We are at a Tipping Point! I can't be the first one to have made this connection. I'm definitely not the first person to make this point. We rally around our idea of a free and just world because we feel a TRUMPET has sounded.
It is true that the angels have been activated, and that we are being called to a higher purpose. All restrictions and regulations have been removed and we can now access archives from the collective unconscious, or the collective consciousness, whichever you prefer to call it.
Currently, I feel two forces in the world. I feel called to honor and reference the Native American folk tale of two wolves to describe the current climate. Humans are of two minds at this time. They are afraid of each other and yet they love each other. It is most noticeable in America because it is where I live. We have people who say they stand for justice equality freedom and yet they will harass and harm those who voted for Trump. I want to change the world just as much as anyone else does. I want to know how we can align all of our visions. I want to know which wolf humans choose to feed.
Violence towards humans can only end with more violence. Standing in resistance with prayer and peace is powerful. When you achieve something through respect, true persistence, and courage, there is more honor in that.
This is the sound of humans crying for change. Calling in a life aligned with abundance peace and unconditional love. Crying out for a life more lined with a higher consciousness. Thus the trumpet was sounded.
The United States welcomes the 45th President, one who will force change to happen.
"Stay Healthy, Stay Light, and Don't Give Up the Fight"
"You were actively seeking to go home, you were triangulating your mission through (God given intention)."
"It means that you have been given the rights of passage to guide them home. You were guiding them home because you can."
While in Toronto some fellow Shifters and I set out on a Shiftiivsm mission to do Free Hugs! While doing them we connected with lots of awesome people and shared plenty of Shift Buttons to connect them back to this main project and to the local Paradigm Shift Toronto community too so that they can join up and take part in future conscious meet-ups! (Connect to www.facebook.com/ParadigmShiftToronto)
I wanted to make this video as further documentation of our role as Shifters and as a reminder and example of how anyone can replicate these simple yet effective tactics where they are.
Check out the video and enjoy!
Reminder that you can get your own Shift Buttons to use where you are when you join the team patreon monthly support as a micro donator for just $3-5. Sign up, add your support, and get your Shift Buttons at www.patreon.com/BrendonCulliton
I wanted to take the time to re-connect with writing my thoughts. Therefore, I will be experimenting with my YouTube series, Truthday Tuesday, and creating a written version.
Truthday Tuesday is a day high vibe humans, like you, ask me questions and I answer them based on my truth and my experience. The written format will be more detailed for the reader to enjoy. The video will also be created and linked to the blog, for those that still enjoy auditory and visual stimulation.
This week's question comes from Mike. If you've been following the YouTube series you will recognize "MIKE" as a regular. He is currently the "good" question provider (not that there are good and bad questions).
His question hits an emotional place, and makes me think about the deeper values I hold.
He asks "How is your Journey changing you as a person?"
My journey through life is only beginning. I am 26 years YOUNG and finishing a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology. I am not sure what the future holds, and I look forward to it. I often see my life as a "Golden Gaian Adventure". As a story I can create and work to accomplish any goals I set my mind on.
My journey is spiritual and scientific. I often commune with the Divine in nature as a way to relieve the stress from graduate school. I enjoy knowing how plants get energy from the sun, and how I get energy from the plants when I eat them. Nom, nom nom I became vegetarian in 2009, and recently went vegan. #govegan2017 I went vegetarian for environmental reasons and I am going vegan for health reasons. My favorite foods are unlimited and include kale, brussel sprouts, quinoa, black beans, and red bell peppers.
You are what you eat. Here is a TEDx Talk by Pamela Peeke on "You are what your Grandparents ate": https://youtu.be/Udlz7CMLuLQ
My journey has changed the way I see my life, the way I see my food, and how I see myself. I am a fire sign. I was born a Leo with a fiery passionate soul.
I am also part water.
I am fluid. Sometimes I am huge crashing waves carving out the shore other times I am serene and calm. If I stray from my meditation and self care practices, I become restless and wrapped up in my head. Thoughts of who I ought to be replay themselves over and over, only wearing myself out. I have learned that self care is not selfISH.
That's the idea behind one of my workshops, "Fill Your Cup" until it overflows. It is easier to serve others once you have taken care of yourself. If you need to take time to gather your senses, DO IT! If you are stressed out, there is a higher possibility you will be LESS compassionate towards others. So, be compassionate to yourself and the rest will flow.
Reviewing how my journey has changed me IS interesting. I would say that I know my values more intimately than I when I was young. When I say intimate, I mean a deeper sense of knowing that comes from experience. When I face tough situations it tests my values and moral code, thus defining and redefining who I am over and over again. My journey is not done. I look forward to sharing what I can with you.
Thank you Mike for your Question.

On January 3rd 2017 I travelled to Greeley, Colorado to bear witness with the activists of Greeley Cow Save, the local chapter of the worldwide Save Movement. The JBS slaughterhouse is one of the largest in North America, killing over 5400 cows a day, six days a week, with a max capacity at 6000 cows slaughtered per day. The sheer size of this location is hard to describe, trucks enter the slaughterhouse at a horrifying rate, sometimes 2 or 3 at a time; it takes up a large block and the smell surrounding this small town is just putrid.
At the front gates of the slaughterhouse we were able to document brief moments with the animals inside as the trucks lined up to be unloaded.
My name is Rachel, a 22 year old shifter girl from México and I'm going to tell how I started to play this game and how I found Brendon, this amazing human being and leader.
First of all, I want to share this with everyone and since I speak two languages I would really like to write this in spanish too, so I'll post 2 stories here, for anyone who speaks it and may wanna read them.
Okay, the story begins with me almost a year ago, feeling stressed and confused about my life and what I really wanted . I'm still studying my career (Programming and Digital Animation) to 2 years left for me to finish, I started feeling like nothing in my life was right, like everything I was doing had no sense at all. I felt my days were simple daily routine and asked myself if what I just chose was ''the right thing''(yeah, obviously!). I have to say that I've always been related with meditation and spiritual stuff because of my mother. She's reiki master so she pretty knows a lot of that. She kinda transmitted me and my brother all her knowledge. But I was awaken in a 20% (I had been so lost!). Since I was a teenage everything went really difficult for me. I wasn't aware of anything surrounding me (obviously!) so suffering was constantly present in my life (obviously! haha).
One day my cousin Yonatan, which I don't really see often, came by from Quebec, Canada (where he actually lives) for some personal reason and my uncles offered a small dinner for him so we could catch up, but more than catching up I personally felt like we were practically knowing each other! It was like meeting a new member of my family. He is such an incredible person and has been in some many places. He is really awaken, enlightened and knows plenty of spiritual stuff. So we kinda made immediately a strong connection. We tried the whole dinner to talk about this awesome stuff but it was kinda difficult cause our family isn't really into this kind of things, so we had to wait and hanged out the next day to talk for hours about so many things. I must admit, that day was amazing for me, he made a great impact on my life and things started to change since that.
He opened my eyes and mind more than I thought they could be so I started looking up for ''answers'' about being awaken. And there's where Brendon <3 came up with his amazing "FREE HUGS" videos!. I was on facebook and honestly I can't remember well how I found it but I watched it and got in love with what I was looking! A guy hugging random people just to spread love and help expanding consciousness. I was so amazed that I wanted to do the same. Then I realized those hugs were more than that and that there were more "random" people doing the same shift all around the world, which it's amazing!
It has been more than 6 months since I decided to play this game too and expand my vision, my mind, everything and I feel really different from back then when I was a teenage, even from a year ago to now. This last semester at school I was able to make a video for my class and explained almost everything I've learned to not only my classmates, also to other teachers and more students. I also made shift stickers and some "FREE HUGS" signs for them and they were really receptive, I've never felt so good and in my element. That opportunity was amazing for me, even tho not everyone is so receptive or respectful, I gave many hugs and plenty of those stickers and didn't really care of "what they would say or think". That's how it has been since that (really positive results). I created this facebook page -> Paradigm Shift México - http://www.facebook.com/ParadigmShiftMexico <- to be in touch with people surrounding me and there's where I show everything I've done and share all the amazing content that I find everyday. I'm still figuring out how to create a club or meeting, I could say is still in progress cause it has been quite challenging for me to find more open minded people, but I trust and I know they'll show up and they will like to join this journey with me.
I'm playing this game in "Single Player" mode right know, but I will soon change it to "Multiplayer". I know this is why I am here and it's part of my mission. I want to be the change I'm desperate to see in my country! Cause I care about it, and I know the only way is LOVE and TRUSTing the universe and yourself, not anyone else. Yonatan taught me to keep looking, searching and to fully open my mind, and Brendon taught me to create, to change, to take actions and being an inspiration for others. They still teach me and inspire me in so many ways that I'm so grateful that they crossed into my life and that they helped me STARTING THE GAME.
I won't stop playing, I won't give up till the end. I'm a rebel, a divine being, one with the force and one with the universe, I love what I am and the most important... I trust.
I hope this story helps someone to feel part of this life shift and to reaffirm the truth about everything. To make you know you are not alone and there are many "random" people there outside that, who knows they'll may help you out too, you just got to trust, you'll find them.
Thank you so much for taking your time to read this, you are amazing!
