“Volunteering is a Sign of The Creator God’s Love”

The Spiritual Awakening 3 Core Principals 

Welcome to the Great Awakening Report (GAR), where our mission is grounded in three transformative core principles that illuminate the path toward personal and collective evolution. In the sacred practice of “The Observer’s Spiritual Practice,” we invite you to embark on a journey of profound self-awareness, transcending the ordinary to explore the depths of your consciousness. Within the realm of “Forgiveness & Releasing Spiritual Practice,” we offer the key to unlock the chains of the past, allowing the light of forgiveness to illuminate the way forward. Finally, our commitment to “The Heart of a Spiritual Volunteer” pulses at the core of our being, inspiring acts of selfless service that resonate with the universal energy of compassion. As we navigate the realms of mindfulness, forgiveness, and service, the Great Awakening Report serves as a guiding light, inviting you to join us in a collective awakening that transcends the boundaries of the self.

Observers Spiritual Practice

Observers’ spiritual practice involves the intentional cultivation of mindfulness and self-awareness with a focus on the spiritual dimensions of one’s existence. Rooted in various contemplative traditions, this practice goes beyond mere observation of thoughts, emotions, and actions; it includes a meta-awareness that reflects on the nature of the observer itself. This spiritual endeavor incorporates elements of detachment, reflexivity, and exploration of one’s deeper consciousness. It seeks to foster not only an understanding of the present moment but also an awareness of the spiritual essence within, encouraging individuals to connect with a higher self or universal consciousness. By integrating mindfulness with spiritual inquiry, observers’ spiritual practice aims to bring about a transformative shift in perspective, inviting a deeper connection to the sacred, and promoting a more harmonious and purposeful way of living.

 

Forgiveness & Releasing Spiritual Practice

Forgiveness and releasing as a spiritual practice involve the intentional cultivation of compassion, letting go of resentments, and freeing oneself from the emotional burdens of past grievances. Rooted in various spiritual traditions, this practice recognizes that holding onto anger and grudges can hinder spiritual growth and well-being. It entails a conscious decision to release negative emotions, allowing space for healing and transformative change. By acknowledging the impermanence of human experiences and understanding that forgiveness is a gift to oneself, this spiritual practice promotes inner peace, compassion for others, and a deeper connection to the universal flow of love and understanding. Ultimately, forgiveness and releasing serve as powerful tools for personal liberation and spiritual evolution, fostering a sense of lightness and openness to the present moment.

 

The Heart of A Spiritual Volunteer

The heart of a spiritual volunteer beats with a deep sense of compassion, service, and a profound connection to a higher purpose. Engaged in acts of selfless service, a spiritual volunteer is driven by the understanding that true fulfillment comes from contributing to the well-being of others. This volunteer carries a genuine desire to alleviate suffering, promote kindness, and embody the principles of love and unity. Rooted in spiritual values, the heart of a spiritual volunteer seeks to make a positive impact on the world, recognizing the interconnectedness of all beings. It beats with the rhythm of empathy, generosity, and a commitment to creating a more compassionate and harmonious global community.

Helping hands and hearts

“Everybody Can Be Great Because Everybody Can Serve.”  – Martin Luther King Jr.     

Definition of The Heart of a Spiritual Volunteer 

A Spiritually Awakened soul acting in a conscious and compassionate manner to volunteer, not merely working as an expression of good will. The Spiritual Volunteer is guided by a heart connected experience with the Creator, who has gifted us a Free Will Universe of choices, lessons and experiences. That gift was not based on a merit system, but on the Creators unconditional love and desire for experience. A Spiritual Volunteer is a person who volunteers for service to others, not service to self, to offer voluntarily oneself as a volunteer, one that voluntarily undertakes a responsibility to others without request, obligation, or an interest pays the debt of another and is denied reimbursement from subrogation, one who renders a service or takes part in a transaction while having no legal concern or interest, one who receives a conveyance or transfer of property without giving valuable consideration.

How Does Volunteering Help You Spiritually?

If you have ever lent a hand to someone in need without expecting anything in return, then you know the sense of satisfaction and achievement that you feel when you do something unselfish. Volunteering gives you that same warm feeling, something that has been studied by positive psychology.

How Does Volunteering Relate to Our Creator God? Volunteering as Part of God’s Design?

Did you know that God reveals to us in the Bible that helping others is part of His design? Even scientific evidence has now caught up to confirm it! God’s Word is filled with references of showing love, generosity, and sharing our gifts.

Volunteering is Often Seen as a Voluntary and Altruistic Act Rather Than a Sacrifice. While the terms are related, there is a subtle difference in connotation.

Volunteering: Volunteering is the act of offering one’s time, skills, or services willingly and without being compelled or coerced. It is driven by a desire to contribute to a cause, organization, or community. Volunteers typically engage in activities that align with their interests or values. Volunteering is viewed as a positive and fulfilling endeavor that brings personal satisfaction and a sense of purpose.

Sacrifice: Sacrifice, on the other hand, implies giving up something valuable or important for the sake of a greater cause. It often involves relinquishing personal interests, desires, or possessions. While sacrifice can be noble, it may carry a heavier emotional or personal cost compared to volunteering. Sacrifice may involve hardship or difficulty and can be associated with a sense of selflessness.

In summary, while volunteering involves giving one’s time and effort willingly, sacrifice implies giving up something of personal value. While volunteering is generally a positive and fulfilling experience, sacrifice may involve a more profound commitment and personal cost. Both concepts can be admirable, depending on the context and the motivations behind the actions.

They may engage in activities such as visiting the sick or elderly, offering counseling or spiritual guidance, organizing and participating in ceremonies or rituals, or providing humanitarian aid in areas affected by natural disasters or conflicts.

It is characterized by a lack of consideration for the well-being and needs of others.

“Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.”  – Albert Einstein

There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up. When we give openly and cheerfully while accepting gratefully, everyone is blessed. You have not fully lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you. A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. Your giving inspires others to volunteer.

  2. Shared Values: The community shares common values, goals, and aspirations.
  3. Empathy and Compassion: Members of the community demonstrate empathy and compassion towards each other including shared joys, sorrows, and challenges, leading to mutual support and care.
  4. Collaboration: Community unity consciousness promotes collaboration and cooperation. Individuals work together toward common objectives, leveraging collective strengths and resources for the greater good.
  5. Inclusivity: It emphasizes inclusivity, acknowledging the diversity within the community and appreciating the unique contributions of each member.
  6. Responsibility and Accountability: There is a sense of shared responsibility and accountability for the well-being of the community.
  7. Communication: Open and transparent communication is encouraged allowing for the free exchange of ideas, concerns, and feedback, and fostering a sense of trust among community members.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”  – Margaret Mead

Holding a 5D Collective Frequency

“Holding a 5D Collective Frequency” refers to maintaining and embodying a state of consciousness associated with the fifth dimension within a collective or community. In spiritual and metaphysical terms, dimensions are often used to describe different levels of awareness, consciousness, or vibrational frequency. The concept of the fifth dimension (5D) is often associated with higher states of consciousness, unity, and spiritual evolution. Holding a 5D collective frequency involves:

  1. Elevated Consciousness: In the context of dimensions, the fifth dimension represents a state of expanded and elevated consciousness. Holding a 5D frequency implies operating from a perspective that transcends ego-driven motivations, emphasizing unity, love, and interconnectedness.
  2. Unity and Oneness: Individuals within the collective actively cultivate a sense of unity and oneness. This involves recognizing the interconnected nature of all beings and fostering a deep understanding that each person’s well-being is intricately linked to the well-being of the entire collective.
  3. Heart-Centered Living: Living from the heart center becomes a central focus. Emotions such as love, compassion, and empathy guide actions and interactions within the community, fostering a harmonious and supportive environment.
  4. Transcendence of Duality: The 5D frequency involves transcending dualistic thinking and judgment. Individuals in the collective strive to see beyond polarities, embracing the idea that there is a higher purpose or understanding that unites seemingly opposing forces.
  5. Expanded Perception of Time: In 5D consciousness, there is often a shift in the perception of time. The collective may embrace a more present-focused awareness, letting go of rigid timelines and embracing the idea that everything is interconnected in the eternal now.
  6. Spiritual Evolution: Holding a 5D frequency implies a commitment to spiritual growth and evolution. Individuals within the collective actively engage in practices that contribute to their personal and collective spiritual development.
  7. Conscious Co-Creation: The community engages in conscious co-creation, recognizing the power of collective intention and manifestation. There is an understanding that thoughts and intentions have a significant impact on the reality experienced by the collective.
  8. Resonance with Higher Energies: Holding a 5D frequency involves attuning to and resonating with higher vibrational energies. This may involve practices such as meditation, energy healing, and other spiritual modalities that facilitate a connection with higher states of consciousness.
  9. Embracing Divine Feminine and Masculine Energies: The 5D frequency often emphasizes a balance of divine feminine and masculine energies. The collective acknowledges and integrates these energies within individuals and the community, fostering a harmonious and balanced environment.
  10. Service to Others: The focus shifts from individual concerns to a collective commitment to service. The community actively seeks ways to contribute positively to the well-being of others, embodying the principle of service to others as a core value.

Holding a 5D collective frequency is a dynamic and intentional process that involves a continuous commitment to spiritual growth, unity, and conscious co-creation within a community or collective setting.

Masters of Creating and Holding a 5D Positive Mental Attitude

Individuals who have mastered the art of cultivating a 5D positive mental attitude exhibit a heightened state of consciousness aligned with fifth-dimensional principles. These masters transcend ego-driven thought patterns, embracing unity, love, and interconnectedness. Their heart-centered focus emphasizes emotions like love, compassion, and empathy, guiding their thoughts and actions. Embodying a 5D positive mental attitude involves transcending dualistic thinking, recognizing the oneness of all existence. These individuals perceive time differently, prioritizing the present moment and understanding the interconnected nature of everything. Engaging in spiritual practices is integral to their personal and collective evolution, involving conscious co-creation through intention and manifestation for the greater good. With a balance of divine feminine and masculine energies, they create harmonious environments and actively contribute to the well-being of others, uplifting the collective consciousness. In essence, masters of a 5D positive mental attitude demonstrate profound spiritual awareness, inspiring and elevating the consciousness of those around them.

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. – Pablo Picasso

How to Find the Right Volunteer Opportunity

There are numerous volunteer opportunities available. The key is to find a position that you would enjoy and are capable of doing. It’s also important to make sure that your commitment matches the organization’s needs. Ask yourself the following:

  • Would you like to work with adults, children, animals, or remotely from home?
  • Do you prefer to work alone or as part of a team?
  • Are you better behind the scenes or do you prefer to take a more visible role?
  • How much time are you willing to commit?
  • What skills can you bring to a volunteer job?
  • What causes are important to you?

What Are Your Volunteering Goals?

To find a volunteer position that’s right for you, look for something that matches your personality, skills, and interests. Ask yourself if there is something specific you want to do or achieve as a volunteer.

For example, you might want to:

  • Improve your neighborhood.
  • Meet new people with different outlooks or experiences.
  • Do something rewarding with your spare time.
  • See new places or experience a different way of living.
  • Try a new type of work that you might want to pursue as a full-time job.
  • Expand your interests and hobbies.

Consider Several Volunteer Possibilities

Don’t limit yourself to just one organization or one specific type of job. Sometimes an opportunity looks great on paper, but the reality is quite different. Try to visit different organizations and get a feel for what they are like and if you click with other staff and volunteers.

Where to Find Volunteer Opportunities

  • Online spiritual websites, Telegram, directories and other resources.
  • Community theaters, museums, and monuments.
  • Libraries or senior centers.
  • Local animal shelters, rescue organizations, or wildlife centers.
  • Youth organizations, sports teams, and after-school programs.
  • National, regional and local parks, and conservation organizations.

How Much Time Should You Volunteer?

Volunteering doesn’t have to take over your life to be beneficial. In fact, research shows that just two to three hours per week, or about 100 hours a year, can confer the most benefits—to both you and your chosen cause. The important thing is to volunteer only the amount of time that feels comfortable to you. Volunteering should feel like a fun and rewarding hobby, not another chore on your to-do list.

Getting the Most Out of Volunteering

You’re donating your valuable time, so it’s important that you enjoy and benefit from your volunteering. To make sure that your volunteer position is a good fit:

Ask questions. You want to make sure that the experience is right for your skills, your goals, and the time you want to spend. 

Make sure you know what’s expected. You should be comfortable with the organization and understand the time commitment.

Don’t be afraid to make a change. Don’t force yourself into a bad fit or feel compelled to stick with a volunteer role you dislike. 

Enjoy yourself. The best volunteer experiences benefit both the volunteer and the organization. If you’re not enjoying yourself, ask yourself why. Pinpointing what’s bothering you can help you decide how to proceed.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. – Mahatma Gandhi
