I've been into paranormal and oddball spirituality all my life. Part of that includes conspiracy theories, where such theories point to the gaps in what much of society and religion deems to be true. So, I already have a bias towards such theories. However, as an attorney, finding gaps in the evidence to support mainstream thought only strengthens my passion in exploring alternative theories.
To begin with, I don't dive into such theories the same way others seem to grapple with such ideologies. Think Alex Jones, who've I've paid slight attention too on and off for almost two decades. He's exposed much of what the government may be doing behind closed doors, government secret occult meetings, and certain wealthy/powerful families, which I am being led to believe control the major democratic party candidate. Though, Alex Jones comes from a "right-wing conservative-christian perspective", where he throws his support on the major opposing candidate believing that he may be an "outsider". My main critique of this theory propagator is that he fails to look at the gaps in one of the biggest theories on our planet blinding him in the political arena. He fails to look at the gaps in his own religion, which creates a bias on all of his theories. Hence, much found within the conspiracy theory arena fall into this category, including the flat-earth theorists. But hey, thoughts/beliefs create reality, and so if a flat-earth is something you need to have dire faith in like the Church in the dark ages, then you'll place yourself in a parallel universe where that is an expressed truth, since that's how the law of attraction works. Just don't Giordano Bruno the rest of us that like to a more expansive nondualist approach to the universe.
My exposure to conspiracy theories has been to discover and redefine my spirituality. To really discover who I am, my roots on the Earth, and overall, my roots within the Universe. In addition, to remember what I am really capable of, if there is something more than our animalistic human story. In studying spirituality, metaphysics, the occult, I'm led through authors who hail from different hidden organizations, where such organizations are often labelled by the above-mentioned group as "satanists", "illuminati", etc., where I receive a completely different interpretation in studying such material, something I'm assuming the above-mentioned crowd has not done. Hence, certain biases arise in interpreting these theories. Though it's been much easier for me to grasp such information coming from an eastern background where material like the Gnostic teachings resonate very well, but if you grew up in certain sects of Christianity where duality is the only experience, let's just say it's very difficult to comprehend as evidenced by the numerous pastors I've heard attempting to articulate and negate Gnostic teachings.
In other words, studying/researching conspiracy theories should not be done from a fear-based perspective, which is how I feel most people approach such information. When lingering in fear, well that creates a vibrational ripple throughout the emotional body triggering the law of attraction, which would lead towards a downhill spiral under the fear-love based emotional body. In fact, I'm finding most individuals are now looking at such theories to point fingers, where I remember a decade ago, it was rare for someone to even know the word "illuminati" outside of the "killuminati" Tupac theories. As someone that has looked at this information for much of his life, for almost three decades, conspiracy theories are layers upon layers that need to be peeled to discover the truth (if that's even discernible), where most individuals are parroting very limited information, and are viewing and articulating what they find with dark lenses of prior limiting belief systems. Hence, though I still keep an eye-out for Alex Jones type material, I guess I'm more in the David Icke category, who seems to blend new age thought with his theories. If you didn't know, those two seem to be the biggest parrots for conspiracy theories, but come from opposite ends in the conspiracy theory spectrum. In first discovering David Icke, I thought he was nuts. Now, well, his theories seems to be more and more on point from what I've been discovering. Again, many many layers have to be addressed for this material to even seem plausible. David Icke is the individual whose written the "bible" of conspiracy theories, where his theories seem to be the most extravagant.
Overall, my approach to conspiracy theories has been a "healthy" one I suppose, where the material excites me as opposed to placing me in a downward spiral of fear. Such ideologies place me in the position to unplug and not be tied to the societal delusion, to not be tied to the political theatrical circus (well at least without a comfortable chair and some popcorn), but to recognize that my Spirit is the only thing I should be pushing for. It seems those on the higher ups and within certain organizations knew something with regards to spirituality, where the religious counterparts provide us with a dumbed down dribble. I seek to recognize the strength of my own inner-being, a liberation from the delusion away from my animalistic human story that is engaged with the circus.
For those of you researching such theories, I plead with you to not get tied up into fear. Moreover, I've found that once you come across a theory that makes sense, you will find more information that challenges such theories into deeper and deeper avenues, like peeling an unlimited onion. Unless it is bringing you closer to understanding who you really are, I would recommend not paying much heed to such information as it would be irrelevant to your own growth.
From looking around at the political circus, where it appears one candidate is begging the U.S. audience to vote for the opposition, which appears to be the only way to get the opposition elected due to this candidate's inconsistent background but consistent support for a particular wealthy family, I feel we're awakening to how much we've really been duped. Such theories depict politics like a game of rigged chess mainly to make the pawns feel like they have a choice. As it appears more and more people are becoming aware to such fraudulent undertakings creating a shift to a societal breakdown, we need to become aware of our own inner strength to proceed.
While society around us may be crashing down, it's only because it's time to recognize our own truth, and not the "truth" we've been told. Such truth revolves around not in looking to our external circumstances and external society for our solutions, but to look to the strength of our own inner-being. Let conspiracy theories unfold the delusion that we've been set-up to believe where only a few have gotted a glimpse of the truth behind the mystery (Pisces) in the past, but let your Spirit shine through to manifest our freedom (Aquarius).
