MICHELLE WALLING: “19 Things That Can Help With A Spontaneous Awakening”

More and more people are having spontaneous spiritual awakenings than ever!  Many are experiencing paranormal or metaphysical experiences that are surprising and are seeking answers about these things.

Many people are awakening to a sudden realization that they are not just a human being or their physical body, but they are spiritual beings having a physical experience on planet Earth.  As we receive waves of love and light energy to the planet, we are receiving a vibrational boost which serves to awaken and cleanse all that is no longer serving this reality.

A spiritual awakening is a life changing event that is prompted by your higher self. Your life may change drastically in order to align you with your highest and best path.  You may lose some friends as well gain new friends. Sudden realizations about relationships in your life can bring about tumultuous emotions.  You may be prompted to change jobs or to move.  Be assured that your life will never be the same and that you are in for a glorious peek behind the veil that some people in your life will not understand.

Here are some more spontaneous experiences that have been reported with a sudden awakening:

  • Uncomfortable physical “ascension” symptoms
  • OBE’s (Out of body experiences)
    Huge downloads of information. May see geometric shapes, numbers, colors, light.
  • Extraterrestrial contact or spirit guide contact

As you make your way through these experiences, here are 19 things that can help you shift through a sudden or drastic awakening.

1.  Stay calm and reduce your fears through information and healing. No, you are not going crazy.

2.  Learn to use discernment. Trust your instinct or “gut feelings”.

3.  Forgive yourself and others for everything you think is “wrong”.

4.  Be responsible for how you treat others and for how you are creating your reality.

5.  Assess your diet and lifestyle. Alcohol and drugs cause aura cracks. Research GMO food and chemical additives. Drink plenty of pure, fluoride free water.

6.  Ground with the planet, take frequent baths, breathe deeply and consciously, and meditate. Create your own style of meditation.

7.  Don’t think you have to figure everything out at once. Allow things to unfold rather than trying to control your awakening.

8.  Communicate with like-minded individuals. Contact someone who has an experienced an awakening to discuss the most pressing questions you have. Social media is an awesome tool.

9.  Research spiritual awakening online to find information that will help you (while using discernment and taking only what resonates). Follow the breadcrumbs by being led to certain articles or videos.

10.  Connect with your higher self/guides to ask for help in certain areas that may seem overwhelming.

11.  Make notes about what you experience, including your dreams.

12.  Research alternative healing methods such as crystals, Reiki, acupuncture, EFT, etc.

13.  Move the body- walk, swim, yoga, tai chi, etc.

14.  Move your awareness from your head to your heart. Don’t get caught up in overthinking.

15.   Allow rest and self care. Spend time alone if you need to.

16.  Watch for synchronicities and number repetitions. These let you know you are on the right path.

17.  Allow emotions to flow through you/do not block or suppress.

18.  Become the conscious observer of your life and get out of victim mode.

19.  Remove toxic relationships and situations from your life.

(20):  Continue to raise your vibration.

MICHELLE WALLING: “False Teachers — The Masks Are Coming Off”

“There is no judgment in watching a mask fall off of another human being. It’s a beautiful thing. Many will become vulnerable and will need support if they so choose to ask for help. Some will crawl deep into a hole to never be heard from again, out of embarrassment and with the unwillingness to grow their inner light and forgive themselves.”

~Michelle Walling

 

As we have recently reached critical mass and have affected the false light grid, we will begin to see more and more people for who they really are, or are not.  We will see those who have mastered the illusion of regurgitating information vs. those who are able to be centered, grounded, and speak of their own experiences from their heart.  You will be surprised to see that the man or woman behind the curtain may be a wounded child as the curtain comes down.

A magician knows how to study, memorize, and practice, and can use mirrors and slight of hand to create an illusion.  One who is truly in the power of who they are remembers how to create true magic through the heart, out of the void.  If someone is serving in the form of a teacher, then that person should be able to share their own reality and learning experiences rather than to continuously quote and share other people’s experiences.  As many of us have our psychic abilities activated more and more, we are beginning to see who is working in integrity and who is copying.

Some of the teachers that many people have been watching and listening to for many years hide behind other people’s truths while doing the complete opposite than what they teach in their own lives.  I have heard of so called spiritual teachers who treat others badly and/or are outright alcoholics or drug users.  I have heard of others who preach unconditional love and forgiveness while not taking responsibility for their own words and actions.  We’ve all seen this type of behavior, with no responsibility or acknowledgement.  The main observation here is that there are no secrets where we are moving to, in 5d.

Deep inside, we all have an urgency to exit from this reality.  Many teachers who have not done the work on themselves had a path of “fake it until you make it”.  Sometimes it worked out in the end and they became amazing teachers because truly if you set your mind to something with positive affirmations, you can do anything.  However what I would like to address here is the true way out of this matrix.

We will never exit the matrix only be obsessively being in service to others.  There are no short cuts and there must be a balance.  Many times I found myself working more for others by pushing myself to put out more information, only to have a situation arise in my life to slow me down.  Eventually I took the hint and realized by trial and error that working on myself is most important, and then sharing the observations and what I had learned would help people more than just working hard by sharing other people’s experiences.

For example, I used to have a weekly radio show where I allowed people to share their experiences and it took a lot of work on my part to create this ongoing platform.  The quality of the connection of the show continued to get worse and worse and it caused a lot of anxiety and pressure to be able to go on live with an interview.  Eventually I just let the live show and all the work involved go and chose to pre-record when I felt like it.  I enjoyed that so much better and the sound was so much better, and it just showed that there was an imbalance of energy.  The imbalance was the pressure to go on live even when I wasn’t in the highest integrity.  Another imbalance is that it did not pay any of the bills, which is still a part of my 3d reality.

We are not perfect yet.  We are still bridging 3d with 5d. To be distracted with overworking yourself in service does no one any good and retards spiritual progress.  Also, to be distracted with too much 3d will keep you rooted in 3d.  We all will get to 5d at our own pace, but what I have learned is that I will get there much faster by focusing on 5d and focusing on myself first and sharing my own experiences rather than “performing” for others out of spiritual and metaphysical entertainment.

Thinking that you will make the pearly gates to 5d simply because you are working in service is an illusion.  The pearly gates are within the heart and only open when zero point is reached.  Zero point is achieved through self love and respect, and by standing in your own truth.  It involves removing blocks and integrating traumatized shards of our soul that have separated from you, usually form an emotional trauma.  When you do the work, you suddenly “get it”, and you can then share that truth.

When you “get it”, your thoughts and actions ooze truth and you become a shining pillar of light.  You strive to treat others as if they were you, and you stop playing games.  You can no longer be triggered (as much) and if you are triggered, you forgive and strive to keep going, learning each time how to react a different way.  Sometimes you remove yourself from those who are not willing to work on their own projections.  This is how a true teacher walks the walk and talks the talk.  You have no need to fake it.

There is no judgment in watching a mask fall off of another human being.  It’s a beautiful thing.  Many will become vulnerable and will need support if they so choose to ask for help.  Some will crawl deep into a hole to never be heard from again, out of embarrassment and with the unwillingness to grow their inner light and forgive themselves.

spiritual discernment

Just remember that we all came from the higher dimensions and we will all see each other again there, but the energy on the planet will no longer support hiding who you are.  Trying to create magic from illusion will no longer work because everyone will know the trick.  It’s best to focus within on the real magic of alchemy, geometry, and vibration, and to watch the world around you change.  Honesty is key and lies will no longer be supported or tolerated. Some people cannot see that they are lying to themselves.

Another topic to mention is copyrights and trademarks in the spiritual and metaphysical communities.  Nothing can be owned and everything that is thought comes from somewhere that is tied into everything.  We are all one cosmic mind and are connected.  We receive ideas and thoughts from our higher mind as it is downloaded into our brains.  Twenty people can receive the same idea at the same time.  Anyone who claims ownership over a name or method is only doing so to protect monetary rights, but eventually that will be seen for what it is as well.  All helpful information should be shared, not stifled and marked.  There are creative ways to be able to receive monetary support for your work.

You cannot enter the 5d pearly gates without mastering 3d.  Mastering 3d means to be in a stillness within your heart, and that ironically means spending time with yourself and facing all that is not in alignment with love.  It’s about being truthful with yourself and making a commitment to change what needs to be changed.  It’s the most difficult task we can do, and just when we think that we are there, we see that we still have a lot of work to do.  Anyone who thinks that they have done all of their work is fooling themselves, and we always continue to do the work until we merge again with Source.

Many teachers hide behind a curtain because if they were to really be seen for who they are, they would lose their power of influence and popularity.  If you see one of these people, know that they are simply wounded children and don’t know any better.  It’s also just easier to play a role than it is to BE that.  If you have fallen into a trap of one of these people who just wants popularity and money, forgive yourself and learn what you do not want to align with.

As far as those who charge for their expertise, truth, experience, and healing services, there is nothing wrong with charging for services that are in alignment with a truthful energetic exchange as long as we are in a reality where we need money to survive.  One day this will all fall away and we will only do what makes us happy.  If you are “serving” incessantly, stop and think, “would I be doing this or working this hard if there was no such thing as money”?  When the energy of desperation or greed is taken away, more people will be attracted to you than ever before.  Beware of people who obsessively push their services and charge an enormous amount of money.  Common sense says that to be in alignment in this economic crunch, we need to be able to offer affordable services but we also need to make enough money to survive.  It’s that simple.  Working incessantly for money is not going to create the shift into the reality where there is no money.  Working when you are in alignment and for the right reasons- compassion and love will allow you to get what you need and to open your heart space even more through service.  Time then stretches and allows you to get a tremendous amount of work done in a short period of time.

As crazy at is sounds, the way we remember who we really are is to observe who and what we do not want to be.  A balance is required on how you take other peoples’ truth and meld it with your own, and learn form your observations of  how that melding worked for you.  All the answers are within, but you are also projecting outside in your reality so that you can be able to recognize it.  Become who you really are, not what you think others want you to be, and you will draw just the right people into your reality that will support your personal timeline shift as well as contribute to the collective.  Becoming a true 5d magician vs. a 3d wanna-be is a goal that each one of us probably has at this time.

If you follow this template, you will never fall for another teacher who seems to know what they are talking about, and you will not become that teacher as well.  You will also never feel the need to hide or to be introverted, and instead you will want to share your journey with others out of love and compassion for those who are about to walk the same path that you have.  You will also never need to lie to yourself or to another ever again, nor will you need to feel like you need to make yourself seem better than someone else.  You realize that we are all connected and all came form the same Source, but choose individualization based on integrity and love until we decide to return to that Source as one.  We are all in this together, and we are all trying to remember who we REALLY are.

KELLY ASHLEY: “4 Stages Of Real Spiritual Awakening And How To Move Through Them More Easily”

almas-antigas

I’ve seen and read a lot about the stages of spiritual awakening over the years and to be honest, I’ve been left disappointed.  For the most part I couldn’t understand how everyone else’s awakening was all rainbows and butterflies, while I became a hot, emotional, crazy, mess.  I figured I must be doing something wrong.  Why did it seem that everyone else could walk this path in linen robes, bare feet and a ton of stable grace and I was somehow failing.  Even after so much time, I was still chronically ungrounded, anxious, emotionally triggered and finding daily physical life an unmanageable burden.

Thankfully, that was then and this is now.  I have an entirely different perspective now that I’ve come through so much of the journey.  I can look back and see the patterns.  I can stop waiting for enlightenment or connection from someone else’s perspective and know that my experience is real (and so is yours) — whether it fits into a preconceived box or not.  So, that being said, I’d like to bust some of the enlightenment myths and instead, give you what I’ve found to be a more accurate account of the 4 key stages of spiritual awakening.

STAGE 1 – AWAKEN

This is the stage that starts it all.  And no, it wasn’t an accident.  Your soul planned exactly what it was doing before coming down here — its happening for a reason.  Large quotients of energy begin to flood your system.  The psychic centers are opened (usually quite abruptly) and suddenly your feeling, sensing, seeing or hearing things that you weren’t aware of before.  Your psychic senses are so much more acute — you may even begin having powerful spiritual experiences or sensations and you’ll feel more sensitive than usual too.  Due to the heightening of these psychic senses you’ll likely feel the need to retreat — to pull back from people, places, and things.  You’ll want to hibernate.  That is entirely natural.  Its ok.

STAGE 2 – HEALING

Now your system is seriously online (and it needs to be for this next part).  Energy is thrust (quite powerfully) up through the chakra system.  The purpose is to dislodge the old ‘dirt’ from lifetimes ago which block that energy flowing smoothly straight through your system (giving you a purer connection to source).  There are old emotions, heart breaks and trauma from past life times that our soul needs to heal.  This is why our psychic senses had to be so heightened — so that we could tap into the information from our past lives and become aware of it.

During this phase you’ll feel really emotional.  Your emotions will change wildly and erratically.  You may feel you have no control over when or where or how strongly they come up.  It can be really hard.  And if you try to hide, the universe will stick people in your way to trigger the emotions that need healed.  So the lady at the gas station will give you a look that triggers an inexplicable sense of fear in you.  Or you’ll just happen to meet a new love interest with the same name as the one who broke your heart before.  Things will get really synchronistic, and probably quite confusing but this stage will pass.  And the good news is, that once these issues are done, they are really and truly forever DONE.  They’ll be healed and cleared so well on the soul level that you’ll likely never feel them in the same way ever again.

STAGE 3 – LIFE PURPOSE

Phew! By the time you get to here, you’ll be feeling inspired, creative, full of ideas and equipped with an inbuilt sense of duty to help or serve in some way.  You might just feel like Superman — and so you should!  However, there are likely still some little niggles that show up as you move into a new project — the likes of which is probably entirely new territory.  Sometimes at this stage you get a little second wave of the previous.  The universe is testing that all of these issues (who weren’t who you truly are) are gone for good.  You might find some old patterns, issues or pains surge again.  And when they do you’ll likely feel exasperated, and irritated at yourself, and question if you’ve made any progress at all.  But they’ve been inflated and intensified for a reason — so that you’ll clear out every last nook and cranny of that low self esteem, or loneliness, or anxiety.  You’ll finally be free of it!

This time can be a little nerve wracking, as you step into a cause or a new career or the thing that fulfills you most.  Its nerve wracking simply because its new.  And while your soul has let go of fears that you can’t do it, or worries that it wont work out, it also has never had an experience without them looming over you.  It can feel odd to try something and do well, or to find your space in the world.  Allow yourself to realize that everything is OK.  You are safe and guided as you try new things and find ways of living that truly express who you really are.

STAGE 4 – DIVINITY

Now is the stage when most folks will tell you that you have reached guru status.  I’m not going to tell you that, because personally, I think it’s ungrounded.  Divinity is about being so clear of old pain, and negative beliefs and assumptions about life, that you are truly pure in your energy.  You are true to who you are.  You are in your divinity because, much like a beautiful diamond is encrusted in muck and coal, you have removed and cleared everything that is NOT who you are.  All that’s left is a polished diamond.

You were always divine — no matter where you are in these stages, you are still divine — its just easier to see that beauty and authenticity without all the ‘muck’ on top (and it makes your psychic abilities so much more accurate too!).  Your interactions with others are clear and genuine.  You reach a new level of freedom because you are no longer bound by the beliefs that once held you back.  You might end up like a guru.  You might walk bare foot across beaches of sand, blessing others with a gentle pat on the head; or you could just be a normal person, aligned with their life purpose, enjoying the sunshine at a family barbecue — fully present, stable and grounded in the moment — like me tonight.

Ok, so now that you know the 4 main stages, you’re probably itching to move forward and know the next step.  I tried A LOT of different techniques to help me move through awakening more smoothly (I’m a bit like a geeky spiritual scientist, testing and evaluating so many different techniques).  I did healing for 9 hours a day (whoops).  I did meditation for 2 hours at a time (double whoops).  I even went on week long courses to open up my psychic senses further (wait what?!  Now that’s just silly).  Yep, I’ve made pretty much every mistake you can make on the journey of awakening – and made it 10 times harder for myself too.

It wasn’t until I learned effective grounding that everything came into alignment.  I know what you’re thinking.  Boring old grounding.  Well, not exactly, because I found that traditional grounding methods often don’t work for us.  We have so much energetic power being blasted through us that we need effective grounding techniques that work, and work FAST.  I’ve created a FREE 5-day grounding course to help you do just that, but more on that in a minute.

Grounding was the one thing I did that finally brought order and stability to my awakening.  It stopped the whole process from being so crazy and uncontrollable.  It calmed my emotions.  It made normal life ‘normal’ again.  And once all that was done, the purpose that I had been desperately searching for years just struck my mind like a little golden power bolt — fully downloaded with the ‘how to’ manual.  Now that’s enlightenment!

I realized afterwards that the reason I hadn’t found (or been told) my life purpose yet was because I wasn’t actually ready to receive it.  I had been chronically ungrounded for almost 4 years, mostly completely unaware that that was the problem.  Once I showed the Universe that I was stable, secure, balanced and steady, it just illuminated my mind and changed the direction of my whole life in an instant. It was incredible.

I know you want that too.  You want to move through these stages — get out of the hard ones and into the fun and exciting ones.  You absolutely can — and I’ve created a FREE course to help you do that right now!  Visit our website in the bio below to get started!

MELISSA BLUE RAY: “Starseeds — Awakening The Divine Blueprint”

4 Universal Laws That Make or Break Your Manifestations

Many of us starseeds and lightworkers have incarnated here from higher realms and ascended planets to assist humanity in this time of change and transition.  As this awakening has started to unfold, we have felt a calling to discover a deeper purpose in our lives.  Understanding 4 important universal laws and how they relate to manifestation is the key to releasing abundance blocks and awakening to our Divine Blueprint, our life purpose and mission.

So many of us have bravely awakened in our different stages and cycles. We have heard the call to be of service, yet many of us don’t understand how to handle this transition and manifest our newly discovered purpose or mission.  We want to claim our sovereign divine birthright, that of living in total joy, prosperity and abundance, yet we find ourselves confused and stuck as we adapt to these new energies and to navigating our newly awakened realities.  In this article we will explore 4 universal laws that influence our ability to manifest the prosperous life we intend to create through discovery of our Divine Blueprint.  These are the Law of Karma, the Law of Attraction, The Law of Intention, and the Law of Detachment.

Let’s begin by asking ourselves these questions:

  • Do you feel a calling to serve others through your divine life purpose?
  • Do you know that you are divinely guided and protected?
  • Do you know that everything in our material universe is created mentally?
  • Do you receive messages from your guides through ideas arising from inspired thought?

If you can say yes to any of these questions, then you have already opened the door to increased abundance and prosperity.

It’s important to understand that your awakening and opening this door to the abundance contained within the Infinite Mind is only the first step. The next step is to understand the integration of the Law of Karma and the Law of Attraction.

In understanding the Law of Karma, we acknowledge that negative actions reflect back to the source as negative circumstances, so do the positive effects of consecrated or inspired action reflect back as positive experiences and circumstances.  Once the gateway to abundance and prosperity has been opened, and your true calling discovered, you then begin inspired action to bring your dreams and desires into reality on the earthly material plane. You turn the Unmanifested (spirit) into the Manifested (material or matter).  These inspired actions (via the Law of Karma), along with the high vibration emotions such as joy, gratitude, excitement, and positive anticipation (via the Law of Attraction) will then unlock the door to the next step of manifestation.

This then leads us to another universal law, the Law of Intention.  If you are not using the Law of Intention, it is bound to have you spinning around like a hamster in a wheel. You feel like you are exerting a lot of effort, yet you seem to be headed nowhere and perceive life as a struggle.  By understanding this law, you align the accumulated positive karma from your inspired action with an intention. Because of the Law of Free Will, we can set any intention we desire.  However, I will share with you what you already know deep within, that the highest intention you can hold is that of loving devotion and service to others.  Aligning to the highest possible intention allows you access to your internal Divine Blueprint, the immense manifestation power of the Infinite Mind.  Doing this is truly the key to the mental transmutation of poverty consciousness into prosperity consciousness.

Don’t forget, my beloved fellow starseeds and lightworkers, that no matter how connected you think you are, or how high you try to hold your vibrational field, you will only manifest your desires by both taking action and simultaneously embracing those actions.  Don’t dread or resist those action items that need to be completed.  To do so is not inspired action and serves to block the abundant flow of All That Is. Allow yourself to be a thread of divine light that touches the Earth.  Use that light to raise the vibrational level of your own consciousness and radiate it out into the world through loving devotion and service.

As your inspired action is completed, and the higher vibrational consciousness is fused with loving intention, there is yet one more universal law to consider on your manifestation journey. The Law of Detachment or Surrender must be upheld, and this is the total acceptance of that present moment we call “Now”.  Harnessing this universal law is achieved through faith and surrender to the higher Divine order of All That Is. As you stay centered in faith and service, you choose not to embrace feelings of fear, inadequacy, powerlessness, or other lower thought forms the programmed ego-mind chooses to create.

Once these universal laws are understood and used to your benefit, you begin to pay attention to signs being sent to you.  As you do this, you will be guided by your divine connection to your guides and to higher realms.  You will be drawn toward that which serves, and steered away from that which does not. You move through your actions with a sense of lightness and ease, every action infused with being, without judgement or attachment to outcomes. This state of being requires a complete release of control in regards to how you think the desired result will be achieved.

By staying centered in faith and affirming positive outcomes, you show the Infinite Mind of All That Is, that you are the microcosm vibrating in resonant harmony with the macrocosm. The inner and outer worlds fuse and become one. As Above, So Below.  You are now able to access the infinite power of Divine creativity and manifestation.  Suddenly you will find that all you desire is attained with effortless ease.

NANCY WALLACE WARD: “Tuning Into the Vastness of Being for Guidance”

Vastness of Being (2).jpg

“My question:

I am viewing the planet Earth from space.

What is happening on this planet?

How is it that so few can control so many?”

~Nancy Wallace Ward

 

To move beyond the control requires the conscious awakening of humanity.  Many are still asleep and many argue for their own suppression because they are terrified of what the truth of their reality may reveal.  Many still want to be taken care of by overlords and that is what is happening.

It is very frustrating for starseeds at this time.  But even the starseeds require a further opening, taking responsibility for clearing their beliefs and managing their emotions and opinions (beliefs again).  Many have come to rest in places that seem comfortable, where they can describe the world and reality from a perspective they have built up around them, but that is simply another structure, another system of belief.  Further delving into surrender and presence is required.  Many have stopped at a certain point and do not realize they are building new structures and walls around themselves.

Star Beings, travel further, keep moving, do not allow anything to cling to you.

Genetic manipulation of food, animals and humans, mind control, weather manipulation and chemtrails raining down micro bots of energies for the further enslavement are weapons the dark teacher is using to keep the sleepwalkers asleep in fearful dreams, and to disconnect crystalline children from their souls.

Starseeds, realize that, although these things are of a physical nature, you are all able to transcend this physicality by your vibrational frequency.  You do this moment to moment through holding the intention to be sovereign and free and by breathing into the presence of your soul.  Breathing into the present moment of your experience.

It is an individual thing but also there is strength in numbers.  The collective consciousness is growing and expanding.  Love is what gets you to the highest vibration.

People are starting fires of discord everywhere you look.  These fires come from deep wounding and fear.  It draws you in and then you are in the pool of anger and despair and this generates food for parasitic negative entities.  The awakening is happening and you can assist in the acceleration by disengaging from the stories of discord and re-engaging in your breath, in love and wonderment.

The Earth vibrates with the innocent frequency of love.  Tune in to the resonance of earth and allow it to flow within you and without.  This is a step towards rising above the chaos.  Be vigilant.  Learn to manage your energy.  Practice loving kindness and compassion.

GREGG PRESCOTT, M.S.: “So, Your Spiritual Awakening Cost You Some Friends”

Non-Conformity

 

Have you noticed a change in your relationships with other people lately?  Is it sometimes difficult or awkward to talk to others about spiritual topics?  Do you, at times, feel alone in your beliefs?   Have you lost contact with any long time friends recently?  You are not alone!

I’m fortunate to have a lot of Facebook friends who post similar types of links. Too many times, I see a lot of people who talk the talk but are afraid to walk the walk, due to being ridiculed for their thoughts and posts (GROUPTHINK). I’ve lost some longtime friends because of this but have made many, many new ones. Once the ego is released, you no longer worry about conformity and peer pressure.

Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that structures various belief systems within a group of people while discouraging individual creativity and independent thinking.  Even within a group of individuals who are spiritually awakened, you will find groupthink.

If you look at the recorded history of mankind, you’ll find that this history is merely someone’s interpretation of a landmark event or evolutionary process, backed by eyewitness testimonial, scientific data, video or faith.  The actual truth may be hidden or distorted for many reasons, but mostly for control and power.  Look no further than the origins of mankind and you’ll find a plethora of creation myths from all cultures with varying dates of our existence.  Who’s right?

Can you talk to your friends about the universe?  Do they know what a stargate or chakra is?  Are they willing to talk about ascension or spiritual enlightenment?

When you talk to people about the creation myth, they tend to remain inside the box with a belief system that supports religion’s story of creation, which dates mankind back to 4,000 B.C.  If you raise questions about our true origins, it tends to separate people and relationships between those who think outside the box versus those who think inside the box.  When these topics arise within relationships, they often create dissension.  It’s hard for anyone to admit they’ve been deceived for so long and even more difficult to admit they were possibly wrong in their assumptions.

This is a prime example of how our educational systems keep us locked inside the box without questioning anything about what we’ve been taught.  Those who remain inside the box are afraid of what others might think if they venture outside the box, so they remain complacent and subservient while conforming to what society dictates rather than relying on their own discernment and judgment.  People could live their entire lives pretending to be what society expects them to be and not even know it!

From an ego perspective, our thoughts are basically cultivated by what we’ve learned from our family, friends, educational systems and religious beliefs, but what have we truly been taught?  What can we say about anything that wasn’t regurgitated to us by someone else?

As evidenced by past life regressions, our previous lives and soul history remain dormant in our cellular DNA and can be recalled through our subconscious minds through hypnotherapy.   Within your cellular DNA, you actually remember being back with the Source along with all of the things you wanted to accomplish during this incarnation, as well as all of the challenges you wanted to overcome and all of the people who would lead you to where you are.  This includes the people that have come and gone from our lives.

Also see: Remind Me Again, Why Did I Incarnate To This Sh*thole?

Sometimes, we project to be someone that we expect others to see in us.  In psychology, this is referred to as the shadow self, where we project an identity that conforms to how other people may perceive us versus being true to who we really are. Some people may find out that they never knew who they were because they lived their lives through the expectations of how others will perceive them.

Those who have begun their spiritual journeys may also be confronting these issues, which initially creates cognitive dissonance.  Cognitive dissonance occurs when you get an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding conflicting ideas simultaneously.  This is the transition period that many of us have gone through, where our beliefs have changed, yet we’re unsure about relating these new ideas to our friends and family, due to fear or rejection.

As our spiritual journeys continue, we become more comfortable within our own beliefs and less concerned about how our friends and family view this awakening.  This is when the ego becomes separated from the self and fear is dissolved by love.  At this juncture, we begin to talk to acquaintances, as well as friends and family, about spiritual and metaphysical topics, with less regard about what they might think of us or how we may be perceived by others.

In time, spirituality will be the predominant frame of mind and it’s likely that those who have strayed from us will be the first in line to ask for help in adjusting to the new paradigm.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.
– Friedrich Nietzsche

So, Your Spiritual Awakening Cost You Some Friends

Remember thisYou are not alone!  Those who truly love you will stand by you, no matter what.  Those people who are no longer part of our lives have already played their role in helping us find out who we truly are.  Sometimes, it takes polarity to be able to differentiate who we are and where we’re going.  This is where the unawakened help immensely, by providing that contrast which allows us to see the differences.

Envision each awakened person across the planet holding a candle.  While your individual candle may not seem like a lot of light, it greatly contributes to making the world FULL of light and keeps us connected, no matter how far apart we may be.  While it may be painful to lose some dear friends, think about what they have brought to your life and why.

Chances are, you’ll end a few old relationships with people who were, at one time, very close to you, only to create new relationships with like-minded people.  Forgive yourself, as well as your friends, if you feel badly about this.  They came into your life for a reason a season or a lifetime:

Reason, Season, or Lifetime

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty; to provide you with guidance and support; to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Letting Go of Friendships After Your Awakening”

awakening-friendships

“Awakening happens differently for different people. I am a very earthy soul, so perhaps during my awakening it allowed me to remain grounded and connected.”

~Tanaaz

My awakening happened at around 16 and lasted for a few years. It really wasn’t until I turned 19 that I was able to truly understand that what was happening to me was somewhat “normal”.

When I had my awakening, I knew I couldn’t really talk about it or explain it to anyone. I couldn’t tell people that I was hearing voices or chatting with my Spirit Guides. I couldn’t really tell people how cool Louise Hay and Wayne Dyer’s books were, so I just sort of kept it to myself.

In fact, it was very easy for me to switch off everything at school and be “normal”, but then when I got home it would be my time to delve into all things spiritual.

I lived this way for a while, but eventually it got harder and harder to contain. Eventually, I had to make some physical life changes in order to catch up with what my spirit and body wanted me to do.

I started changing my diet, my lifestyle, my after school hobbies, everything in my physical environment started to change. This was when my friends started to really notice.

One day my friend even commented that I had changed, that I even looked different. Her comment really helped me to know that I wasn’t crazy and that other people were also starting to notice.

Towards the end of high school, I became friends with someone who was also starting to have an awakening. Great, I thought, where was she a few years ago?!

Seeing my friend go through her awakening was eye opening. While I was very earthy and internal through mine, she struggled to remain so. She found it hard to keep her awakening life and her regular life separate, and wanted all of her friends to know what was happening.

Of course, her friends were not able to relate to her, which ended up making her feel alienated and alone. While we had each other of course, she had known her other friends since she was young, and it was difficult for her to not have their support.

Eventually she found it too difficult to hang out with them and she started removing them from her life completely.

This was not a step that I  had to take during my awakening. At least, not right away. Looking at her awakening in comparison, mine had been a lot more gentle and internal, whereas hers felt strong and external.

Awakening happens differently for different people. I am a very earthy soul, so perhaps during my awakening it allowed me to remain grounded and connected. Whereas my friend on the other hand, was a very fiery soul, and perhaps it was part of her process to really own and claim her newfound fire.

When it came to letting go of friendships for me, I just sort of let them fizzle out and naturally dwindle down. Friends that I no longer really wanted in my life just sort of melted away. But for her, she had to really state her truth and have everything out on the table.

Even today, I have friends that have no idea what I do or have any understanding of my abilities. I don’t talk about it, they don’t bring it up and yes perhaps it is weird, however when we do hang out I have fun. I have a good laugh. It’s almost like hanging with these people gives me a short break.

The only time I find it draining to be around people who are not open to this stuff is when they are full of drama. But if they are just loving, fun to be around people, to me it doesn’t matter if they understand spirit or not.

I guess the point of this all is to share with you that you don’t have to completely drop all of your friends from your life just because you have had an awakening and they don’t understand.

Sure if the friendship is no longer serving you, by all means go ahead and let it go. But if you are still able to hang out, have fun and laugh then perhaps that is spiritual in its own right.

I think after an awakening there is a tendency to want to feel validated and honored for the “struggle” that you have gone through. Perhaps there is a tendency to want to be recognized for the fact that you can talk to Spirits and access some Divine wisdom. And while this is ok, it may be worth considering that you don’t always have to seek this out in every friend you meet.

At the end of the day, you have to do what is right for you, there is no right or wrong here. But I offer you this- there is a way that you can integrate your spiritual awakening into “regular” life. Yes, it takes practice and some finessing, but it is possible.

In fact, integrating Spirit into this earthly world is part of why you have awakened in the first place!

Of course, not everyone is going to resonate with this and I am sure some people out there are “all or nothing”, but I would be curious to know how many other awakened souls out there have been able to still keep some of their original friendships.

Feel free to share in comments below!

GREGG PRESCOTT, M.S.: “The Dark Night Of The Soul”

Stairs to The Door of Light

At some point in your life, you will experience the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ where it seems that everything that can possibly go wrong, will go wrong.  What many people fail to realize is that this is a true blessing.

The ‘Dark Night of the Soul’  occurs when your life appears to hit rock bottom.  You may experience a plethora of ‘bad breaks’ in your personal life, financially, mentally and/or physically.

What typically happens during the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ is that we get so pounded by all of these experiences that we end up reflecting on “Why did this happen to me?”

When The Cleansing Begins

At first, you may feel hatred towards those who contributed to your ‘Dark Night of the Soul’.  You might question the Creator and feel as though your spirit guides and guardian angels have failed you.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Eventually, you realize that you needed to experience everything that you went through in order to grow spiritually.

In time, you will end up surrendering yourself and your ego to whatever the Universe has in store for you as if it is all now in the “Creator’s hands”.  This is where the cleansing begins.

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain.  People will do anything, no matter how absurd, to avoid facing their own soul.  One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”  ~Carl Gustav Jung

Your Soul Contract, Guides and Guardian Angels

Before you incarnated here,  you made a soul contract that involved everyone who led you to your ‘Dark Night of the Soul’.  When you were on the other side of the veil, you specifically chose these people to help you grow spiritually.  Some of these people may have also had previous karmic relationships with you in which you both needed to try to resolve in this incarnation.

Your spirit guides and guardian angels are with you every second of your life.  When you feel pain and sorrow, they do too.  As much as they want to see you happy, they also realize that you need to experience certain life situations in order to grow spiritually.  Every day, you are being guided in the right direction towards fulfilling your life’s purpose and that guidance includes experiencing the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’.

“Letting go of our images of God can be terrifying.  It is often the result of an experience of suffering in our lives, when our previous understanding is no longer adequate to give meaning to what has happened to us.  When my mother died suddenly in my early thirties, I was thrust into the desert.  All of my certainties about God and life were stripped away and I was left raw and frightened.  Many people offered trite words and shallow comfort in my grief, they were not willing to sit with me in the darkness, but only hoped to rush me through to a place of light.  This is the mystical experience of the ‘dark night of the soul’,  when old convictions and conformities dissolve into nothingness and we are called to stand naked to the terror of the unknown. We must let the process move through us — one which is much greater than we can comprehend.  We can never force our way back to the light. It is only in this place of absolute surrender that the new possibility can emerge.  We don’t just have one dark night in our lives, but again and again, as we are called to continue releasing the images we cling to so tightly.”  ~Christine Valters Paintner

A Blessing In Disguise

The true blessing of the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ is the spiritual cleansing that you receive.  When you have reached the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’,  you have reached your lowest point in this incarnation.  To that I say, “Congratulations!”  From this day forward, your life will take on a new meaning as you begin to understand why everything HAD to happen the way it did.  Once you come out on the other side of the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ you will gain a new perspective and appreciation of what you had to go through and these experiences will exponentially magnify your spiritual progression.

Typically, many people will experience the loss of ego for the first time in their life during the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’.  This can be a very humbling experience.  We typically associate a title or our accomplishments with who we are but fail to see that ultimately, we are spiritual beings having a human experience.  When we lose our ego, we can finally connect to our spiritual essence because we are no longer associating ourselves with society’s preconception (or our own preconception) of who we are.

The ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ gives us a new sense of appreciation for all that is good in life and shows us how little we truly need to be happy.

But the most important aspect gained through the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ is the connectedness we receive through our transformation of consciousness.  It’s as if you are given a new lease on life.  You stop blaming other people and begin to look within for answers.  You learn forgiveness and gratitude.  You realize that you needed to have these experiences in order to get you pointed in a new direction that will facilitate your spiritual growth and life purpose.

“It is precisely because we resist the darkness in ourselves that we miss the depths of the loveliness, beauty, brilliance, creativity, and joy that lie at our core.”  ~Thomas Moore (‘Dark Nights of the Soul’)

If You Are Currently Experiencing The Dark Night Of The Soul

If you are currently experiencing the ‘Dark Night of the Soul,’ I can assure you that there are much happier and fulfilling days ahead of you.  At some point, you should put your faith in the Creator’s hands and know that you are always being divinely guided toward your life purpose.

Look at where your life has taken you and what direction you are being shown to go.  Try to forgive those who have led you to your ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ as well as forgiving yourself.

Don’t try to force any immediate changes because they will come to you when you are ready.  Sometimes during the dark night of the soul, the best thing to do is nothing and just live in the “now”.

While it may not seem like it right now, the people who led you to this point are most likely part of your soul group.  On the other side of the veil, they loved you so much that they volunteered to lead you into the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ if you ever got to the point of where you were veering from your life’s purpose… even if it meant that they would no longer be part of your life during this incarnation.

The best way to look at the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ is to compare it to a butterfly.  Before your dark night, you were a slow moving caterpillar who was limited to a small area because of your lack of mobility.  You didn’t realize how much more you were capable of doing until you spun your cocoon.  Once you emerged from your cocoon, you transformed yourself into a beautiful butterfly whose boundaries were limitless!  In this analogy, the cocoon is where you do “nothing” except going within.  You are on the verge of a spiritual transformation, so let go of your ego, surrender to the Universe and soon you’ll be spreading your wings in flight!
