Four Fascinating Reasons Why Ancient Cultures Firmly Believed in a Higher Power/God

Published

on

My interest in discovering our true history enabled me to realize that many ancient cultures firmly believed in the existence of a Higher Power. African tribes, Arabians, Romans, and Greeks believed in the existence of a Supreme Being. They even prayed and offered sacrifices to this being because they believed it could influence their lives.

Some people claim that ancient cultures believed in the existence of a Supreme Being because they were dumb. However, many advanced ancient structures disprove this claim. These structures show that ancient folks were highly intelligent.

For this reason, there must be other sensible reasons why ancient folks believed in a Supreme Being. To discover these reasons, I studied ancient religions and I realized the following four fascinating reasons why these folks believed in the existence of a Higher Power.

1.Creation

Ancient cultures saw the intelligent design in all living things and believed that a Supreme Being was responsible for this design. This belief made some tribes such as the Kenyan Akamba to refer to God as ‘The Cleaver’ or ‘The Maker’.

Ancient cultures never thought that creation could have appeared by chance. They knew a Higher Power must have created this world and they formed creation myths that attempted to explain how God designed the world.

2. Ancient Cultures Realized That They Couldn’t Control Several Things

Most ancient cultures started believing in God after realizing that they had no power over several things. They realized that the rains rained at their own time, and they could not control negative factors such as death and illnesses. They thus believed that a Higher Power controlled these occurrences, and they offered sacrifices and prayed to it to make things work in their favor. For instance, the Greeks asked Zeus to bring rain because they believed he controlled rain.

3.The God Instinct

Ancient cultures believed in a Supreme-Being because human beings are programmed to believe in a Supreme Being. Our brains are wired to believe in God’s existence.

Neurotheologians argue that the anatomy of our brains predisposes us to believe in a Higher Power. Maybe, it‘s true, as Rene Descartes argued, that The Creator placed the ‘belief in God’ in our minds.

4.Magic

Magic is defined as the use of supernatural powers to influence events.

Many ancient cultures practiced magic. For instance, Egyptians used magic to cure illnesses and protect themselves against evil entities, and Greeks used magic to attract love and make bad things to happen to other folks.

Such cultures believed that magic came from a Higher Power and for this reason, they believed in a God of magic. Egyptians believed Heka was the God of Magic while Greeks believed Hecate was the Goddess of magic and witchcraft.

Conclusion

Therefore, it’s completely wrong to think that illiteracy played a great role in making ancient cultures believe in a Higher Power because there are sensible reasons that explain the origin of this belief.

Is Dreaming Meaningless? Taking a Deeper Look into Dreams

Is Dreaming Meaningless? Taking a Deeper Look into Dreams

For years, mainstream science has lied to us about dreams by informing us that dreams are meaningless. For this reason, most of us never try interpreting our dreams to find their deeper meaning.

I used to believe this scientific viewpoint of dreams. However, I doubted it after deeply analyzing my dreams.

While analyzing my dreams, I noticed that my dreams felt so real that sometimes I couldn’t know that I was dreaming. Besides, I realized that some of my dreams were prophetic because sometimes I dreamt about a situation that I would later experience in real life. As well, I noticed that I had bad dreams when stressed, and good dreams when I was happy with my life.

These realizations enlightened me that dreams are not meaningless as scientists claim because nothing meaningless can neither be prophetic nor can it have the ability to reflect emotions. Furthermore, feeling as if I was experiencing a real experience while dreaming encouraged me to believe that dreams had an importance that most of us don’t know.

I thus decided to study dreaming deeply, and I realized that many ancient people believed dreams were powerful. Most cultures believed dreams connect us to a spiritual reality, and therefore, we are always in the spiritual realm when we dream.

At the same time, some ancient cultures, e.g. the Egyptian and Mexican cultures, believed dreams provide us with coded messages from powerful spiritual entities. These cultures took dreams so seriously that they established schools specialized in dream interpretation.

Besides ancient cultures, I discovered that modern religions believe dreams are meaningful. For instance, Christian leaders preach that God speaks to us through dreams, and they use the story of Joseph to prove that dreams are messages from God. Also, Muslims believe dreams are important, and they believe some dreams come from the devil while others come from the ego.

Furthermore, many famous psychologists of the 19th century believed dreams were important. For instance, Carl Jung, a well-known psychologist, believed in the importance of dreams for as he wrote, ‘we have forgotten that God speaks chiefly through dreams and visions.’

In addition, he also believed that ‘dreams are a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego-consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends.’

Having said that, does it make sense that dreams are meaningless as mainstream scientists claim? Did ancient cultures, modern religions and psychologists guess the importance of dreams, or did they notice that dreams were important after studying them?

Anyway, I believe dreams are important, and the Illuminati, through mainstream science, deceived us about dreams because it didn’t want us to gain spiritual insights – from dreams – that can lead to a spiritual awakening.

The Illuminati usually strives to make everything meaningless since it doesn’t want us to ponder the magical mysteries of the universe that would lead to spiritual and mental growth. Therefore, one way to impede spiritual growth was to lie to us about dreams through mainstream science.

The good thing is that we are now awakening to the truth, and we’ll study and meditate on dreams until we understand the spiritual secrets within them that will help us awaken to our true spiritual nature, know the infinite possibilities of the physical world, and rise above the corrupt system of the Illuminati.

The Three Major Voices in our Heads and Why We Must Know Them

The Three Major Voices in our Heads and Why We Must Know Them

We all have voices in our heads, and some of us try silencing them because they sometimes cause depression, anxiety, or worry.

Although these voices mostly cause feelings of distress, some of them can help us overcome obstacles and understand our true selves. It’s thus important to know the type of voice present in your head at any moment so that you know whether to ignore it or listen to it.

I wanted to know the different types of voices in my head, and therefore, I meditated on them, and I eventually realized that there are three major types of voices in our heads.

Here are they:

1.The Animal Voice

The animal voice mainly focuses on survival. It likes talking about food, water, sleep, and other factors necessary for our survival. For instance, if you are hungry, this voice will constantly talk about food, and it will try to help you find food. Also, if you haven’t slept for a while, it will constantly tell you that you need to sleep since it knows that sleep is important to your survival.

2.The Ego Voice

This is the loudest and the main voice that speaks to us all the time. It’s created by our egoic-self.

The ego voice is highly judgmental and pessimistic. It fears uncertainty, and it will always talk you out of taking risks or doing anything with an uncertain outcome, even when it will be beneficial in the long-run. Besides, it likes knowing everything about the future, and for this reason, it will always overanalyze or try to predict the future.

The ego voice is usually confused since it is disconnected from reality. Lastly, it usually talks about your appearance and social status, and it worries when you encounter factors that make you feel less important.

3.The Voice of Infinite Intelligence/The Intuitive Voice/The Voice of God

Mastering the intuitive voice is the secret to spiritual growth because this voice loves directing you towards spiritual development by reminding you about the importance of spiritual practices. It also loves reminding you about your dreams and your heart’s desires so that you follow them and reach your full potential. Besides this, it cares about everybody, and it encourages you to be compassionate, loving, selfless, and benevolent.  

This voice is never confused, and everything makes sense when it speaks. We must learn to pinpoint and trust it because it always leads people towards prosperous and fulfilling lives.

Conclusion

It’s important to know the difference between these voices so that we know the voice that we must pay attention to, and the voice we must silence or ignore. Anyway, besides these voices, I believe there are many other voices in our heads. You are free to discuss them in the comment box below.
