Free will is a term we are all familiar with since childhood. It denotes our ability to choose and decide in our lives. It is known as a God-given ability, and we rarely question it. But is our will actually free?

The moon and free will

My husband and I were watching a film about Earth’s Moon. The discussion in the film centered around the idea that the Moon is an artificially constructed sphere. It talked about many ancient legends that were told ‘before the Moon was placed’ around the Earth. The theme was that the Moon was made by other intelligence and was placed near the Earth for numerous purposes. One was to balance the Earth's wobble, but another was to control the inhabitants of our planet, namely us, you and I. It was suggested that the Moon is a surveillance sphere so that its makers could watch and control us. The film suggested the Moon plays havoc with our emotions on purpose. Its waxing and waning causes rises and falls in our emotional states and consequently, keeps us emotionally reactive, which thwarts our higher creativity. In other words, we are like gerbils on a continually reactive emotional wheel, out of control of our personal and collective world, with no free will of our own.


Is our will free?

If it is, we are not in control of it. To say we are an emotionally reactive species can't be denied, and if we look at our current world issues, we are obviously out of control. We react to politics with anger and division. We are quick to judge on surface appearances. We shoot people down for no other reason than some personal emotional or mental aberration. The list goes on and on. We beat our spouses, abuse our children and blame others for causing us to feel unhappy.


What are the influences affecting us emotionally? Aside from the gravitational pull of the Moon, we are surrounded by constantly changing frequencies, many that aggravate the human form. Combine that with our own individual psychological programming, it's easy to see how we have difficulty making decisions and maintaining clarity. But is all that because of the moon?


Let us be reminded of our own inherent self-power

We are beings created by love and because of that, we still maintain a higher part of ourselves; a part that rises well above the emotional tides of Earth life and carries us into a higher capacity of Mind. This higher Mind is the creative intelligence of the Universe of which we are intimately connected. This higher Mind holds the relationships and connections between us all, and is constant, permanent, and indestructible.


So, what about our will?

Despite the influences wreaking emotional havoc with us, our power to decide is still ours. It is a power within us that is our birthright. No amount of outer interference can take it away, but we must turn our attention to it. C.S. Lewis in Mere Christianity, said, “Free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having.”


Each moment we are deciding

We are an electrical universe unto ourselves—living plasma fields that respond to our every thought and feeling. We may feel powerless at times, but it is never true that we are powerless. In each moment, we are deciding, even down to the feelings we choose to let influence us. We CAN choose to feel differently at any given moment. We can choose to feel peace instead of conflict or confusion.


The challenge of free will

Our challenge is to gain the desire to want to choose differently. It can be done. Our will is free to choose. Our higher Mind is still here, always within reach. At any moment, we can rise above the emotional chaos of the world and live in the light of love and true intelligence. To achieve emotional balance and move into your Higher Mind, especially when you get caught up in an emotional reaction, do the following:

  1. Stop what you're doing and take a few deep breaths.

  2. Realize that at the root of it, is some form of fear.

  3. Ask your Higher Mind to shift your perception into a higher place.

  4. Wait, breathe, and open yourself to receive another way of looking at things.

  5. Take notes and keep a diary of your shifts.

This practice will increase your conscious connection to your Higher mind and help you realize your free will!


Just choose it!
