The Overview Effect

December 1, 2013 — 5 Comments

This 18 min long video talk about what many astronauts have experienced in space; the ‘overview effect’, a sense of total unity and oneness with all life on Earth. They spend hours just gazing at Earth. And it changes them for ever.

We live on a planet, a beautiful planet.


And if we would like to keep living here, something has to change.

What if our anger, rage, fury and hate, judgment and our love of trauma and drama and separation are the greatest toxic wastes on the planet? And if it is, it’s the toxic waste we could most easily change—if we choose to. But ONLY if we choose to.

There have been numerous studies done proving that when you direct anger and judgment at a plant you kill it. This information should not be surprising to anyone. It disrupts the plant’s necessary energy field to such a degree that it ceases to be able to maintain life.

Well, what does it do to the Earth to have 6.5 billion of us choosing to use anger, rage, judgment, wrongness and separation as our primary mode of functioning in our lives and with each other?

If we want to change the world, we need to stop our reliance on such harsh, outdated modes of beingness. Unless we start asking some different questions, we don’t have a chance to fundamentally change the way we function in this reality and the way we function on this planet with each

So what’s the antidote to the anger, rage, fury and hate, judgment, separation and trauma and drama?

Consciousness. Question. Choice. And Possibility.

And the willingness to eliminate the separation that you believe defines you.

What if you have a greater connection to this amazing planet of ours than you’ve ever been willing to acknowledge?

Is today the day to change that? To start knowing who you truly BE?

A part of the whole that is Earth.

– Based on the book ‘Being You, Changing the World’ by Dain Heer

    ‘The Overview Effect’ what a fantastic way to describe oneness. Thank you for that. How does it get even better than that? ❤


    Okay, here’s where I’m going to sound a little bit off the wall, but from what I see everyday by the 100s are people starring into their digital devices not even looking where they’re walking, often walking into other people! They have no relationship to physical reality, and here comes my craziness gene: I really feel that they’re being programmed digitally. Humans can be implanted vibrationally. If the vibrations of the human heart can affect the vibrations of the earth, digital vibrations can implant the mind. Heart Math and Global Coherence are offering us magnificent ways of actually interacting with our amazing planet, but the political powers only see it as a source of making money at the expense of the planet itself. Case in point, cutting Thanksgiving short so people could rush out to bargain hunt and spend as much $ as possible…the grotesqueness even pulled out a tongue-lashing by the Pope. You, dear Mr. Heer, are a blessing to this planet along with others who are sharing awakenings through the Internet. Much love to you and many blessings!


    Thanks to everyone responsible for coming up with all these amazing and ever-more -pertinent posts! This video is wondrous and so shareable.
