It has come to my attention of late that there is a growing need for networking, well that’s how it has been termed. This re-emergence of “networking” prompted me to contemplate why it is making a come back.
We all know we don’t want the old model of networking that was popular in the 80’s – I think we have moved on from the outdated “Here’s my business card” moment. I believe at a deeper level we know we are meant to connect socially for the purpose of our wellbeing and prosperity.
Here is my new view on the importance of networking, which I am going to term Connectworking. –
Social and Spiritual ceremonies are crucial in developing our connections with each other and our SIXTH and SEVENTH senses. We have five senses that work to activate and maintain our body, but it’s in our social and spiritual ceremonies where we develop beyond our ordinary senses to recognize our extra-ordinary senses.
Because when we connect at this expanded level, we are connecting through the unseen “space” between us, we start to connect heart to heart, spirit to spirit and human to human. Creating a feedback loop of positive energy and resonance between and around us – This act of social and spiritual ceremony builds our connection to the Cosmic Lattice, also known as the Field of Intent, the Unified Field or the Field of Possibility. This creates an expansion within our Soul and our consciousness, allowing for our evolution. The practice of “conscious evolution” is worthy of celebration and ceremony, because these sacred acts contribute to our cyclic evolution; Creating and participating in these conscious ceremonies are vital to our development as a collective.
This is why socializing and networking etc, are part of our relationship building protocol. Our ancestors and indigenous cultures have been practicing these “gathering rituals and ceremonies” for thousands of years.
So, what has changed? – I suggest what has changed is the motivation or intention of these gatherings – Let’s look at the bigger than Ben Hur wedding celebration that has become a spectacle in the form of a major event or moreover like the “performance” of a lifetime, rather than for the purpose of a sacred or special union between two lives. Often these larger than life events seem more important than the actual relationship, which ends a year or two later. Sounds harsh I know, but sadly its commonly true.
It’s the connection and ceremony that are the most important aspect of the celebration – the social and spiritual focus around the gathering invites everyone to participate in the process. And the conscious engagement of all who have been invited contributes to the quality and longevity of the desired outcome.
When two or more gather with an altruistic intention, we literally unite our light and create a higher resonance resulting in conscious evolution. So, yes we do need to network, but for a much greater purpose than simply exchanging business cards.
