The Mandela Effect- A Part of Spiritual Awakening?

lovetherain is a seeker on a strange path and tends to philosophize everything, from the strange and odd to the mundane.


The above picture is a map of the world. But not the world I grew up in. No, it changed for me a few months ago when I started experiencing the Mandela Effect.

South America moved East a thousand miles. Australia moved North. New Zealand moved South. And so on. There are many, many changes for me (and others). It keeps changing, too. I check all the time, and I see things as they shift and change.

It is not only the world but the entire Milky Way Galaxy that has changed for me. In the old universe, Earth was at the edge of the galaxy, on the Saggitarius Arm. Then it moved to the Orion Arm, which never even existed in the old world, and then changed to the Orion Spur or Bridge.

There are also changes in all types of things. Song lyrics, movie scenes, and movie lines. I will get into some of the symbology of these things later. Because I believe the changes are symbolic as well as literal.

Spiritual Awakening?

I believe that those who experience the Mandela Effect are going through a spiritual awakening, and this is just a stage in the process. I have studied the phenomenon, including in relation to my own awakening, and the similarities in others.

Those who are affected also commonly experience many other symptoms, such as seeing repeating numbers, feeling energies, time disturbances, sleep anomalies, and especially synchronicities. Many also feel they are being morally tested, as do I.

Symbolism and the Mandela Effect

Over the summer and fall, I experienced many synchronicities that coincided with the Mandela Effects that I was experiencing at the same time. These themes involved wheat and tares, bread, fruit, growth, tending gardens, bridges, rainbows, and reaping what you sow. It all came together in symbolic meaning.

For instance, someone noted that the well-known VW logo change could represent the separation of the wheat from the tares, as stated in the Bible (there are many Bible changes).

This coincided with my own personal synchronicities at the time involving my garden at home. I think there is a separation of the wheat and the tares, on a personal level within at least certain people who are going through spiritual growth. At another level, it could also be on a more general scale. I think there is a lot to be said about how our inner world is reflected in the outside world, and vice versa.

Another example of symbolism in the Mandela Effect is the change many have experienced moving from the Saggitarius Arm of the Galaxy to the Orion Arm. The full names are the Carina-Saggitarius Arm and the Orion-Cygnus Arm. Symbolically, we have moved (traveled-Carina-keel of a ship) to Orion-Cygnus (Cygnus the Swan- an animal symbolic of beneficial transformation). The Orion arm also changed recently from a normal-sized arm of the galaxy to a tiny, separate arm also known as the Orion Bridge. It seems to be a separate place of change and passage.

False Memories, or Something More?

Scientists say that the Mandela Effect is just people having false memories. While I understand we have them all the time, I don't believe that is what is going on here. A person just doesn't "forget" which side of the galaxy we are on.

I can't say for sure what is actually happening. I feel through intuition that I, along with others, are being allowed to experience reality in a new, perhaps more accurate way. Reality seems to be mutable. I don't think it is necessarily a bad thing. It is just different. After 11 years of these types of progressively stranger experiences, I have learned that reality is not deterministic, is not dead particles bumping into each other and reacting according to physical laws, time is not linear.

There are elements of meaning, association, symbology, even moral decisions that shape reality. Our very thoughts have effects on the "outside" world (clue, there is no outside).

This is just part of a giant puzzle that is the mystery of life.
