Are You Using The Hive Mind Yet?

“Hive Mind – a collective consciousness, analogous to the behavior of social insects, in which a group of people become aware of their commonality and think and act as a community, sharing their knowledge, thoughts, and resources” ~ dictionary.com

“Twitter in particular has often been termed a “hive mind” that connects users to draw on the help of a larger group, such as getting suggestions for where to eat in an unfamiliar city.” ~ Ben Zimmer

We’re at the dawn of a new energetic era – a time of co-operation, collaboration, community and connection. And we’ve just left an energetic era that was all about hoarding knowledge as power and of the rise of the independent and disconnected individual.

What that means for most of us who were born prior to 2012 is that we’re lousy at asking for help, and we’ve grown up expecting to solve our own problems and to suffer silently in the doing of that.

I can feel you nodding your heads in agreement. Empaths, intuitives and sensitive souls especially – we’re not good at asking for ourselves, we’re only good at helping others.

Which brings me to the reason I’m writing this post.

It’s no longer necessary for us to have all the answers. It’s time to throw ourselves open to the hive mind. It’s time to start asking for help. This era asks that of us – if we are to evolve and grow.

Trust that someone within your family, workplace, social network or in the wider community will hold the solution to your problem, or as a group they will work out something more elegant and suited to your needs than anything you could come up with on your own.

I have a dear friend whose husband has just been diagnosed with cancer this week. They live in a rural community with their young children, but her husband will need to come to the city for treatment. She told me she’d love to come with him for his first appointments and chemo sessions, but she needs to be home for her children. But she doesn’t. She lives within a community. She has friends and family, and a wider group of people who care. If she throws her problem over to them someone or several of the group will come up with a solution for her. She doesn’t have to do this alone. And I know if someone else in her community was in her position she would naturally be one of the first people to offer them help or to rally a group to support them.

Please, lovelies, stop struggling on your own and ask for help. Then accept that help. Contribute your own energy to the hive mind, but also use it yourself.

I’m so excited about the possibilities of this new era and how it can help all of us move to a place of more kindness, compassion, community and connection. And it starts with us asking and being open to help and new ideas, and us sharing our own wisdom and knowledge.

Breathe a sigh of relief. It feels good not to have to struggle on our own. It feels good to be able to reach out to others for help and to help others too. Not every burden is ours to carry alone.

Much love to you, Nicole   xx

  1. Such a nice post if only it were true for me. I have had to do a lot on my own because there haven’t been the right people around to know what to do or even understand. I have learnt on my own and even though it has been very difficult and there are only two people in my life who know the right thing to say and appropriate advice it’s not as simple as having a social media account. Or reaching out to others people actually don’t know what to do to help. I’ve found doing it alone gets results rather than relying or waiting on others. The first step is to ask for help but also knowing how to get real help is the task.

  2. Yes absolutely resonate – its always been hard for me to ask for help thinking that I need to work it out by myself so I don’t burden people with my problems. Trying to change but a lifetime of habit is proving to be a challenge.

  3. “… because I don’t know it all and I can’t do it all”. That brought a smile to my face because I know I don’t know it all but I’ve always been expected to know exactly what to do, every time and because I took the time to find out how to do it, I was expected to get on and do it … all of it!

    Not any more though! I’ve got a permission slip! Thank you Nicole xx <3 xx

  4. Nice post Nicole, it’s a new way to live, trusting others, trusting the Divine is actually there to support us.. I think having gone through some major shifts and family deaths recently that it’s two fold. Asking for specifics and accepting overtures, even if I don’t feel much like it.. being open to receive from unexpected sources.. Xx
