“Change your thoughts and you can change your world” — Norman Vincent Peale, author of the best-seller “The power of positive thinking”
Today the whole world is engulfed in one thought — “Coronavirus”. To change the current situation of the world, we ought to change our thoughts. Our actions towards this fight have to be complemented with an equal amount of positive thinking. This is not a miracle, it works with scientific logic.
One of the most common phrases in the stock markets is “the market sentiments are bad” and in turn, we get influenced by it. Hence, individuals also start believing the same, leading to a cascading effect in their actions. This is called “collective consciousness”. We as individuals tend to believe, what society at large believes. This works positively as well. Certainly, everybody in this world wants to eradicate Coronavirus. Therefore, it is important for us to collectively think that we are going to. This will increase the sense of unity and belongingness in society, which is of utmost importance. This theory finds its way from the law of attraction. It will attract all the positive thinkers together and gradually empower the people who are the frontrunners (scientists, doctors, etc.) to work more dedicatedly. Think of it as a transfer of energy to the cricket players from the fans in the stadium in a tight-knit match. The cheering lifts the motivation of the players, by changes in the communication in the nerves of the brain, which leads them to believe that they can win the match and accordingly they put in all the energy in the remainder of the game.
The suffering of human beings is mostly nominal. Winning or losing creates a feel-good or feel-bad factor in the heart. Collective consciousness doesn’t say that there will always be a winning situation. Instead, it doesn’t let our spirits down when we lose.
Experiments conducted by the “Global Consciousness Project” for more than 15 years support the idea that “collective consciousness” can change our world. The concept of “collective consciousness” was developed by the French sociologist Émile Durkheim in his “The Division of Labour in Society” in 1893.
Consequently, the “Diya Jalao” campaign is based on “collective consciousness” and hopes to instil positive thinking through the power of 130 crore people, which will empower the society to collectively fight against this extreme disaster, the world has ever seen.
