Home / Part 1 / Environmental Consciousness and How Places Affect Us | TCM #28 (Part 1)

How do places and spaces that we live and visit affect us on an energetic level? Bernhard and Laura explore the topic of “environmental consciousness” and how the energies of the collective impact us in this episode of the Cosmic Matrix Podcast. They discuss the various aspects of the environmental consciousness that surround us, how the energy of the land, the people on it, different cities, the energy within our home and how anything external can affect us in invisible ways. They begin by defining environmental consciousness, how it often is a reflection of collective internal states as well, how trauma can impact the energy of a city, places that have impacted by war, and how to transmute the energy of the environment around you. They also share some personal experiences with the “heaviness” of Germany and European cities, how the energy of the people around us or who we live with impacts us, the current coronavirus scare and fear frequency in the collective consciousness, and more.

In the second part, Laura and Bernhard share signs that the place/space you live in may not be good for you and how to counteract it, the importance of being discerning about who you live with, and how to somatically tune into your body to make the right decisions. They discuss the difference between the true Self and the wounded/conditioned parts of ourselves that we may mistake as the true self, how substance abuse can open portals and infect a place/space, how to find a place that will balance your individual inner energies based on the elements (water, air, earth, fire) or based on polarity (yin/yang), how frequency vibrations, thoughts, and thought-entities and how collective suggestions affect us and much more.
