From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along-her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

I love science fiction. I could also say I devour science fiction. So in the epic sci-fi sense, this movie had the effects and galactic repercussions, with Earth at the center of the story. It held its own as a sci-fi story, but also had illustrations of the same ideas I write about here. It had cannibalism, soul mates, passion directed by the soul, follow your heart and don’t betray yourself stuff, negative beings who feed off Earth energy, re-incarnation, etc. But the most captivating part for me is the overall story of two people, who seem to be soul mates, baring their souls and risking their lives in a world filled with soulless cruelty.
Jupiter is apparently the re-incarnation of a mortal, but very long-lived dynasty. They can track the re-incarnation of a soul (consciousness) via DNA because the blueprint is particular to a specific consciousness. The fight is over ownership of Earth and her part is to be used by her children from the previous life as they fight over the royal title to Earth. She is key to that. Jupiter doesn’t remember her previous life at all, but finds herself among predators manipulating her as if she were still that person. In the midst of the battle for her capture, is a hunter who ends up helping her. This hunter is someone she is strongly attracted to, is beneath her royal status, and whom she bares her heart to. This is the soul mate story.
The antagonists in this story are thousands of years old. They harvest people from planets in order to use their energy to extend the lives of their bodies. They cannot provide life extension themselves because they have long since detached themselves from their source of life – their souls. They act like soulless beings and accurately display in the movie, the dead look in their eyes. So they harvest people from Earth in order to extract energy from them while they are in organic form. This energy is the energy related to the connection between soul and body. This is the literal representation of cannibalism.
The hero of the movie, the hunter, used to being treated as a slave cast has a shield around his emotions so he can function in this abhorrent society. Jupiter’s open heart touches his and he eventually allows himself to accept the affections of a royal class member. This requires a sense of self-worth on his part. He could have continued to deny himself a relationship with her, thereby denying his heart and eventually becoming soulless himself, but he didn’t. This is, in part because Jupiter continued to show him her love even as he denied his. This is the soul mate, follow your heart stuff. The movie showed those following their heart, their passion as being the winners.
I also like the representation of the idea that people lose their form and come back. That soul mates recognize eachother, even without knowing why, that following your heart leads to a life of joy, that even when seemingly outnumbered and all is lost, things still work out in the end. Even though there is a very negative, abhorrent aspect to this story, the walk away feeling is very positive.
Cannibalism (from Caníbales, the Spanish name for the Caribs, a West Indies tribe that formerly practiced cannibalism) is the act or practice of humans eating the flesh or internal organs of other human beings. It is also called anthropophagy. A person who practices cannibalism is called a cannibal. The expression “cannibalism” has been extended into zoology to mean one individual of a species consuming all or part of another individual of the same species as food, including sexual cannibalism.
Physical matter is energy. E=mc^2. Consuming physical matter is equivalent to the consumption of energy. Energy is consumed because it is not being produced by the one consuming. There is a need for energy or the organism dies. Cannibalism is a definition which applies to the same species consuming itself. Consciousness is all one species. The Earth energetic system is rife with the energy of cannibalism.
Each consciousness should be the source of its own energy. They are not when the energy is blocked. The energy is blocked by the consciousness itself. Beliefs are an obstruction. When beliefs/thought energy is removed, the energy flows. The consciousness, human in this case, acquires beliefs passively or consciously, these beliefs, if not consciously examined, taking a look at the effect it has on the well being of self and others, will be forgotten and fade into the murky depths of the subconscious mind.
Subconscious refers to that part of the mind we are not paying attention to. The beliefs that faded are still the active programs affecting our actions, behavior and emotions. Unrecognized habits and patterns of interaction result from these hidden beliefs. Each belief has a resonance. We are buffered from the feeling sense of the vibrational quality of the belief by the human body. However, the human body expresses our innermost nature by its posture and expression. Observe yourself.
These beliefs block our energy. This blocks the source of our well-being. We then have a need. We fill this need by feeding off the energy of other people, places, things and animals. Pets are sources of energy. Any attachment is a source of energy. What you cannot walk away from is an attachment.
Our emotional dramas with other people are due to our need to feed. Every interaction tells us about our need. This energy has become part of the Earth system as seen in the environment and wildlife. It is due to energy blockage – beliefs. We are not love or expressing it naturally, in a not forced way unless all of our energy is unblocked.
These beliefs are accumulated throughout lifetimes of experiences. We have beliefs in our subconscious unrecognized because they are from a previous life when we were ‘someone else’. So we wouldn’t recognize it as relevant to this life. A ‘lifetime’ in human terms is the reset into forgetting in order to start anew. We are the same person, the same consciousness, the same soul who has experienced many lives in human form. This is all one life for the consciousness (us), perceived as many because the form changes. One could say our form changes because our energy keeps killing it.
We are cannibalizing eachother. This hurts ourselves and all others. This cannibalization plays out in society and families. Parents need children, corporations need consumers and consumers desperately need entertainment. A person feeds off of another through interactions that produce emotion. The emotional. Reaction is their food. It helps feed the energy patterns within their belief systems that are held in place (this takes mental effort). If they don’t feed, if isolated, they have to face themselves, the thoughts that pop up. They are then forced through their own desperate desire to feel better, to begin to eliminate beliefs causing them pain. Without this isolation or will to stop feeding, the person uses someone else or thing to fulfill the desperate desire to feel better.
Life is not supposed to be about suffering or learning through suffering. We, humanity, are suffering because of our self-neglect. We are not taking responsibility for ourselves and the impact we are having on life itself. Because of the mis-management of our own minds. This takes will-power because this world is filled with feel good distractions. Lives go by like watching a re-run unless some extreme experience causes us to take a look at ourselves. What other sentient beings are going to want to interact with consciousness that feeds off of other consciousness? We are fascinated with emotions and the physical feeling of them. We feel ourselves and we can only do this because we are using physical matter within the physical universe to do it. Otherwise, in our true state, we are ‘formless’, consciousness that exists in a reality similar to the dream state. ‘Intangible’.
We are abusing physical matter in this way. Our bodies are physical matter – they are living beings themselves we are communing with. Our negative consciousness belief systems result in abuse of the body, abuse of the animals, abuse of Earth. If we treat our bodies as if we are communing with God through them, with the gift of sensation and emotion, we will be in a more considerate place.
There seems to be a concerted effort to help mankind as expressed through channelling, spiritual masters and incarnated beings bringing in a fresh, new perspective – what you are doing is hurting you. This help is a response to the suffering of humanity and calls for help through prayer. Let’s help eachother to help ourselves. Be mindful of your thoughts, actions and expressions. Be considerate of others. Take a look at what you are doing. Are you feeding?
