Extract from Consciousness Becomes You

In my late teens, I moved to New York City. Not long after I arrived, on the Friday of the July long weekend, I was getting off the subway returning home from my last appointment of the week. As I surfaced to street level, I counted my money. The upside was it was easy to count, since I only had a dollar in change. The downside, the handful of change was the sum total of all of my money. With payday on Monday, and Monday a holiday, I realized that I only had a dollar to live on for the next three days.


As I walked down Park Avenue, staring into the bleak pile of change in my hand, I quickly realized, but somehow accepted, the fullness of my fate. I was screwed, and probably not going to eat for three days, which, as a model in the 80’s, did have an upside. At that moment a homeless person, spotting the change in my hand, put out his hand. I stopped, looked into my palm, and decided to split my money in half, giving the homeless man fifty cents and saving fifty cents for a Diet Coke to treat myself in preparation for was about to be a truly long weekend. Yes, Diet Coke was only fifty cents back then.

I passed my hotel and walked to the corner store where I went straight to the fridge and grabbed a Diet Coke. As I stood at the counter to pay, I noticed two crisp one hundred dollar bills lying in the muffin tray to the left of the checkout. I looked around, but there was no one in the store. I held up the money and asked the guy at the checkout about it. He had no idea. The store had been empty for a long time. Since it was just me and the cashier in the store, I offered to split the two hundred bucks with him. I left the store with a Diet Coke and a hundred dollars.

As I walked to the front desk of my Hotel to collect my mail, the front desk clerk asked if I would like to take his free dinner passes for the night to a new restaurant down the street. He wasn’t off work until eleven, so a sit-down dinner was out of the question. The dinner was five courses and included a complimentary bottle of wine. The dinner was for two, so I took my roommate, who was also broke, but kindly left the tip. I was full and I still had a hundred dollars to get me through the weekend.

I returned to the hotel just as the desk clerk who gifted me dinner was finishing work. He asked my roommate and I we’d like to go out to a club, on him. My night of drinks and dancing in a New York club concluded when I found a bag of weed in the middle of a crosswalk, on the way back to the hotel. For some of you this would have been scary, but to me, it was the icing on the cake of my day!

I’ve revisited this experience in my mind hundreds of times over the years, trying to understand how it all came to be. Only after changing careers, working for fifteen plus years as a psychic medium, and researching and writing about human consciousness, do I understand the fullness of what occurred that day.

I now understand that our reality is fractal. All the complex beauty we see and experience in the physical world, including our bodies and the patterns of our lives is fractal. Chaos theorists and mathematicians have discovered that beneath every fractal pattern is a simple recipe, a few simples steps like, go forward two steps, turn right, go forward three steps, repeat. Sometimes these simples recipes have to repeated thousands, even millions of times to create the beautifully complex patterns we see and recognize in nature.

Snowflakes are familiar examples of fractal patterns. Every snowflake is shaped around a hexagon, the molecular structure water molecules arrange themselves into. Tiny variations in the hexagonal pattern occur as snowflakes form and grow to create infinite varieties of fractal patterns we recognize as snowflakes. Every snowflake is unique, but all of them have the same six side, or six branch pattern of the water molecules they are made of. Masaru Emoto’s work, Messages From Water, demonstrates how consciousness and intention can shape and alter the fractal patterns of snowflakes.

Much of what I ‘see’, working in altered states as a psychic medium are the patterns of consciousness that underlie and shape people’s lives, patterns of thinking that repeat thousands and millions of lives to create the greater patterns of our lives and the world we live in. I see these patterns of consciousness, and how they unfold in multiple ways through time in people’s lives. My work is now largely about bringing people’s consciousness to these patterns, so that they manifest in desirable, intended ways.

I now understand that splitting my four quarters with the homeless man years ago was kind of like making a slit in an intricately folded piece of paper. When the paper gets unfolded, the single slit shows up in multiple places as a fractal pattern, like in a paper snowflake. We are all connected to one another and the planet, just as many parts of a piece of paper become connected when it is folded. All of our thoughts and actions have meaning. The smallest thoughts and actions can unfold and echo through the wider world in powerful and far reaching ways, just as a slit in a folded piece of paper unfolds into an intricately patterned paper snowflake.

Inundated with daily news of catastrophic climate change, political uncertainty and injustice after injustice across the world, many of us feel powerless. Many of us desperately want to stand up and be heard, to create and be a part of the change we so desperately want to see in the world, but are overwhelmed just coping with the stresses our day to day lives. For all of you out there who feel like you are on the sidelines, who want to change the world but don’t know how, I would like to reassure you that you are powerful, you can, and do change the world, even if you don’t realize it just yet.

Your smallest, seemingly insignificant thought or action can and does echo through the wider world in far reaching ways. A single act of kindness, of acceptance, of genuine charity, love, responsibility or enforcing healthy boundaries can echo through the world in powerful and unexpected ways. If you can be on the front lines of activist movements to change the world, wonderful, but a simple act of kindness, of expressing gratitude for the food on your plate or the beauty of nature, feeling appreciation for the clean water you bathe in or drink, or expressing your love for a fellow human being can be just as powerful.

Fractal activism is about being the change you want to see in the world, at every level, with every ounce of your being, and embracing your power to change the world through simple, tiny actions. You may never know when, where or how your tiny slits in the fabric of reality will unfold into a beautiful snowflake in your life, or in the world. But rest assured, you are powerful. We are all powerful beyond measure when we bring consciousness to our thoughts and actions. No matter how small, our thoughts and actions collectively unfold and ripple through reality to create the world we live in, often in unexpected and delightful ways.
