13 Things I Wish I’d Known At The Start Of My Awakening Journey

You are here on Earth to learn to love yourself.

This path can be as bumpy, or as smooth, as you choose.  It’s your ride!  So if you’re just starting out on this journey, here are a few things I’d like you to know, because I chose the bumpy path and you need not do the same!  There wasn’t anyone around back then to tell me these things, and if they had…well I would have thrown my hands in the air and squeed with joy around every corner on this roller coaster of life.

Here are the things I wish I’d known when the whole thing started:

 

1. You need not be in a state of perpetual healing.

Much like a scale out of balance, as you apply love in place of trauma, equilibrium takes over.  There will come a time when you will say, “I am healed,” and you will leave it behind.  This includes the idea that you need to heal the Earth Collective of every evil that ever existed, throughout history.  As you balance yourself, you become a powerful healer wherever you go, with no action required.

 

2. Crying means you’re getting better, not worse.

Any culture that tells you that crying is weak has been lying to you.  Crying is an immediate release of resistance, as well as an initiator of rebalancing chemicals that heal your physical body. The process is meant to cleanse you, and it is not a sign that something is wrong with you.  Let those tears flow whenever and wherever you are.

 

3. All physical pain has an emotional cause.

Your body is not solid. Humans simply believe that it is, and as such, they search for solid cures to their imbalances. Although medical intervention serves its purpose during the stage where we believe in external cures, you can discover your own internal healing process for any imbalance.*

Oh, and those unexpected 12 hour sleep sessions you find yourself partaking in? They are not depression; you are healing on many levels while you are out for the count.

 

4. Music has a profound affect on your vibration.

The music that you listen to will indicate your current world view.  Note how a song makes you feel, and if it agitates you, then choose something else.  You are made of sound.  And just like an orchestra in which many instruments contribute to the aria, any sound you hear will blend with you and affect your energy. Consciously choose which sounds you allow in.

 

5. Daydreaming is the process of creating LIFE, and is not an escape.

We are told to get out of “fantasyland” and get back to reality.  This is a lie.  The creational process is enacted through you using your imagination.  So rather than feeling guilty about those daydreaming episodes, remember that this is the process of creation, and it is a most valuable use of your time.  The true escape is to fill your head with other people’s ideas rather than nurturing your own.  Social media understands the value of your attention, and uses it like currency.  Social media, television and movies may leave your life, as your imagination becomes so vivid that you no longer need anyone else’s input to fill your day.

 

6. Loving nature plays a huge part in the process. Buy a plant!

Part of humanity’s imbalance is its relationship with Earth, which is the ultimate Martha Stewart of hostesses.  You have a whole planet to play on!  It is important to establish a relationship with Earth in any way you can.  Yes, that means getting out in nature and reveling at the beauty of it. If you live in a city, buy a plant and learn to care for it as if it were your child.  Not only will it thrive in your care, but it will heal humanity’s damaged relationship and bring us all back into balance. Note that if you are interested in honing your supernatural abilities, focusing on rebalancing yourself with nature is the most efficient way to do this.  For me, it has rejuvenated my abilities as a rainmaker, a deathwalker, and other long-dormant shamanic skills.  You have them too!

 

7. Tying up loose ends is required.  Debts, relationships, promises.

If there is something nagging you in the back of your mind, pay attention or it before it gets humongous.  Bills you keep forgetting to pay, people you keep forgetting to thank, even an oil change you’ve been putting off. Get them done and have as much appreciation for the situation as possible.  This is you, bringing yourself back into balance. Even paying an extra $5 on a debt sends the Universe a sign that you’re working on rebalancing things.  You will receive help, I promise, and in very imaginative ways. Integrity is paramount in the awakening process.

 

8. You are never alone.

Everyone goes through a period of relative isolation. You may lose all of your friends as your frequency rises and theirs doesn’t (but don’t get the ego involved, as there could be those who have vibrated right past YOU!). Yet as you learn to love yourself more, your perspective will also change about who Others really ARE.  You will discover that there are tons of beings that exist outside of your line of visual sight.  It’s a gradual progression of acceptance, in which you concede that you don’t know everything there is to know.  And yes, those things flying around the room that you try to explain away…they really are other souls sharing the space with you. And if you’re wondering if someone you’re thinking about is connecting with you, the answer is yes. The process of your thinking about a person affects them, no matter how far the distance. We are all connected, all the time.  There are no exceptions. You might just forget that once in a while.

 

9. No one is out to get you.

Read my words:  There is no such thing as evil.  There is only your belief in evil.  Once you stop believing in evil, it disappears from your life.  This includes pandemic viruses spread among the population by shadow governments; oligarchies by oppressive Reptilians, bullies, and alien abductions.  All of these occurrences are merely symbols—that you have created—to help you work through your fear of loving others, and ultimately, yourself.  Your Higher Self is on your side and wants to see you, and everybody else, WIN.

 

10. You really can have everything you want.

It CAN all work out just the way you want it.  No one has to lose for another person to win.  You have full imaginative capacity to dream of a world in which you get exactly what you want, and so does everyone else. This is the most profound piece of knowledge that I wish I’d had.  Everyone can win.  The outcome of your dreams depends ENTIRELY on your beliefs of whether or not something can happen.

 

11. Your environment is an extension of you.

Your physical environment, which encompasses everything that you can see, hear, taste, walk around in, and explore, is an extension of you.  If you imagine yourself in the middle of a bubble, you take your environment with you wherever you go.  All of what experience OUT THERE is really an extension of what you believe in HERE.  Every bit of stimuli that you receive from your surroundings, from a dog barking to a crowd of angry people, is placed there for you, by you, as an indicator of what you’re thinking.  The sooner you start considering your personal bubble as part of you, the faster you will gather information about your inner workings and rebalance yourself.  That’s when you will start seeing those dreams appear in the physical.

 

12. Everything is a symbol.

A multidimensional life—one in which you are living both in your mind and in a physical environment—uses many languages.  Words are cool, but symbols tell volumes.  Learn to ask yourself what a rash of repeated bird images means to you.  Repeating numbers, even repeating situations, are all symbols of something much deeper.  Even time is a symbol, and really doesn’t exist.  If this baffles you right now, try reading some poetry to get yourself accustomed to how symbols are embedded in everything.

 

13. Being gets you further than doing.

Our society tells us that in order to reach a goal, we must perform a physical action:  “No pain no gain! Just do it!” Our culture advises us to create lists, and no matter how painful it is, check something off each day; if you don’t, you’re a failure.  This is social engineering, otherwise known as a lie.  Any action that isn’t performed in joy does little to move you forward; you are essentially spinning your own wheels.  Part of your re-establishing a connection with the Higher Self entails listening to it; check your gut and how it feels about doing anything.  More often than you think, just sitting and doing nothing will propel you into a creative state where you find solutions without needing physical effort to accomplish them.

 

I hope that these tips will assist you on your path.  Since there is no one single reality, you are free to agree or disagree with them as you awaken.  You are the creator of your life, and you get to choose!  Anything that doesn’t feel right in the gut—throw it out!  Feel for what does resonate, and follow that.  This is integration at its best.

It is my highest desire to see you win.  I certainly am!  Love to you.

woman with itchy throat
Awakening Signs, Life on Earth, The Esoteric,

Itchy Throat? Communication Incoming

Were you ever just, you know, doing something…and all of a sudden you get a hitch in your throat like you have to cough? A tickle in the back that pops up out of nowhere? If so, take note, for it’s not a fluke.

There might be nothing physical blocking your throat at all. Rather, it’s an energetic block trying to clear itself.

Sudden hitches in the throat are a sign of an awakening throat chakra.

There are parts of you that want to communicate, and they aren’t all standing in front of you with mouths from which to speak.

So who is communicating with you?

Asking this question of yourself can open many avenues of discovery, as you contemplate your views on demonic possession, your ability to allow yourself as a channel for extraterrestrial or extra-dimensional entities, and your inherent abilities to accept messages from beyond.

Since you’re creating your reality, all of these others are really just you; but while we’re in a human body, we play along with the Others’ game to give our learning experience a little more flair. Which Others, though?

If you have a fearful world view, then those Others could include your version of whatever demons you believe could possess you. I’m pretty sure we’ve all solidified the image of Linda Blair’s head doing the 360 in The Exorcist.

With influence like this being fed into us, it’s easy to believe that there’s some bad guy out there to get you. It sells things. But truth is, it’s a lie. My guides don’t just incarnate and show up in my physical world. It would make my lessons so much easier to understand, right? Their answer was succinct and blunt:

“Because we don’t want to be human.”

As IF. The nerve. What are we, the chopped liver of the incarnates? As self-righteous as their answer made me, it opened a door to the knowledge that humans are just one option of a gazillion options that souls have to take form; and not everyone wants the human experience. Adventure for evolving souls abounds. In the case of non-physical guides, assisting me from another dimension allows them a different perspective from which to grow.

They did agree that the existence of tacos were a valid reason to take human form.

You may grapple with fears of possession for years, or months, or only minutes, if you’re waking up now. Earth’s energy is accelerating so rapidly that it’s easier than ever to make that switch.

 

No one is out to get you.

 

Your imminent coughing experience is a symbolic reminder that communication comes on many levels. Not only through your ears or into your eyes, but also through the ether, in the form of feelings, intuition and inner imagery.

 

You have a team of loving souls, both physical and non-physical, that are guiding you along the path of where your soul said it wanted to go. Not everyone remembers this on every level, of course. What fun would that be?

And they use all sorts of methods to communicate. As you rebalance your fears about being possessed by something more powerful than yourself, you will open further up into acceptance that there are realities far beyond the reality you’ve been living in. It is then that new worlds open up to you because you know that the only thing that’s stopping you from living in them is your beliefs that you can’t.

So when you feel that hitch in your throat, you’re receiving feedback. Listen, with both sets of ears: those external receptors, and your internal ones that register voices. Additionally, watch for repeating images with both sets of eyes: your physical ones and your internal ones. And give your skin a chance to pick up on things you would normally explain away. And if you have the urge to speak, SPEAK! Record it on your phone or use automatic writing to get it on paper. Allow that channel to open up, and just like rusty pipes that need a little cleaning out, communication will become clearer with practice. The hardest part is allowing it in. After that, you may not be able to shut yourself up!

 

Your thoughts turn into form. And the air around you is rife with thoughts: yours, mixed with everyone else’s. Together they form a soup, which defines your external environment as you experience it.

When you allow these messages in, you’ll realize that you’re getting much more help than you ever thought existed. You will never feel alone again, for how can you when you’re sharing your environment with so many friends? They want to see you succeed, and while there may be some initial hand-holding while you clear out those icky beliefs, you’ll soon realize that no one is here to annihilate you.

Learning to pay attention to physical signs such as these will propel you forward on your awakening journey, and will add substance to your daily life out there in the 3D world. This is you, bridging that gap between the physical and non-physical. So go enjoy some tacos, and give thanks that we are allowed to use these amazing biological vehicles to feel, taste, speak and enjoy such amazing things.

 

If you suddenly find it hard to look other people in the eyes, watch this video.

Find Your Life Themes

Each soul has boundless opportunities to explore life in any number of forms, scenarios and timelines. Those souls who choose to express themselves on Earth (that’s you!) incarnate with the aim of exploring certain themes for learning purposes.

If you went to college, you also chose a theme.  You called it your “major” and sometimes, you added a “minor” because you were so excited about the options that you couldn’t choose just one.

Well, life isn’t all that different.  Since life is about eternal creation, your soul narrows down your human expression into themes as well.  This allows us to hone in on some skills we’d like to sharpen, and to explore existence through a certain set of filters for the purposes of perspective.

What kind of themes are there to choose from?

I had a teacher in high school who assigned reports, due in 2 weeks’ time, about anything. She didn’t dictate what the report was about, but rather allowed us to choose a subject we wanted to learn more about, and make ourselves experts in the subject.

And classmates balked.  They threw up their arms in exasperation:

“What do I write about? She needs to be more specific.”

“She can’t do that to us, we need an idea of what she’s looking for.”

And the best one….”I have no idea what I am interested in.  How can I write a report about it?”

 

Humans are trained to require external supervision, and to doubt the inner desires as invalid.  But your soul is having none of that, because it realizes its power as the creator of its reality.

So there are an infinite number of themes to choose from, thank goodness.

And your soul has many reasons for choosing particular themes, including reworking other-life imbalances, pushing creativity to the limits despite strict social constructs, and contracts to assist others in their journey.

Can you see how remembering these themes while you’re still in the body can make your path a little bit clearer?

 

Themes are as varied as personalities are.  Here is a quick questionnaire to determine the themes in your currently-focused lifetime:

  1. Are there lessons that keep occurring that you thought you had already figured out?
    • Example: You keep dating the same kind of person, even though your relationships don’t work out.
  2. Do you find yourself searching for someone/something and can’t seem to find what you’re looking for?
    • Example: Twin Flame, Soul Mate, Tribes, Extraterrestrial contact
  3. Are you experiencing recurring chronic medical issues?
    • Example: Rashes, accidents, or repeated infections
  4. Do you experience repeating symbols in your daily life whose meaning you haven’t discovered yet?
    • Example: Birds, recurring numbers, or songs

 

If so, write them down, and ask yourself what theme they could be related to.  Look at the symbolism involved.  For instance, do birds occur every time you’re thinking of a loved one? This could indicate a theme related to your accepting the validity of communication from other realms.  Birds are often used by loved ones to send you messages!

 

Here are a few of my own themes being explored in this lifetime:

Occurrence: Repeated unexpected disasters
Theme: strength to overcome anything life can put before me.

(It took the loss of my home in a hurricane, the loss of a child, a debilitating motorcycle accident, and homelessness to figure out this one! Please don’t follow in my footsteps!)

Occurrence:  Repeated images and references to water
Theme:  Learning to let things flow

(Recognizing this theme allows one to relax into the unknown.  There will always be surprises, so let them come as they do.)

 

Occurrence: Struggling with finding time to make art
Theme: Valuing creativity

(This theme underlies all others, and applies to all of us in that, ultimately, we will come to remembrance about our roles as creator of our own reality.  Art is a great way to start recapturing that power.)

 

So which themes are you exploring in this lifetime?

Here are a few additional themes currently being explored by those incarnated on Earth at this time:

  • Soul mates (an agreement to collaborate with another while incarnated)
  • Finding your Twin Flame (integration with Divine Feminine / Divine Masculine)
  • Light vs Dark and the Resistance Movement (the exploration of polarity)
  • Having children or not having children (exploring mortality)
  • Extraterrestrial presence (accepting diversity, and the right use of power)
  • Fluidity (accepting the unknown, the unexpected, and the undesired)
  • Accepting things as they are (exploring what is, and is not, under your control)

Knowing your particular themes will help you create your life in alignment with your soul’s plan. When you’ve found a few, try incorporating them into your Allowing Project journal to solidify your commitment to expansion in those areas.  As you identify your themes, you’ll recognize them when an experience relates to them.  This allows you to be more mindful of the message being sent, and cataclysmic experiences will disappear from your life.

Go out there and create!

believing inner voices
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth,

Which inner voice should I believe?

Do you know what your Higher Self’s voice sounds like?

We’re told that consulting the “larger part” of ourselves is the most dependable way to ensure that our desires correlate with those of our soul plan.

Let’s say that you need to make a decision, and so you ask yourself a question: “What is the best option for me at this time?”

Asking yourself a direct question is always the best and most efficient way to get to where you want to go.  Your Higher Self is right there, waiting for you to ask.

Depending on how much mind chatter you still have in your internal conversations, you may get an answer in a string of words, or an image, or a feeling, or if you are really attentive to your outside surroundings, a synchronicity that is so perfectly timed that you know its connected to your inquiry.

In the beginning of your awakening, your answer will most likely come to you in words.  That’s traditionally been the “reliable” method of communications for humans, after all…forget the fact that leaving out a comma can cause all sorts of issues with the statement being made:

“Let’s eat, Grandma.”

“Let’s eat Grandma.”

So, yeah, words aren’t that dependable.

What about the voice delivering those words?  Where is it coming from?  Whose voice is it?  And is one voice easier to believe than another?

I have a friend who begged for the voice to be someone besides her own, so she could be positive that it wasn’t her mind playing tricks on her. And when it finally happened that she received a message from a strange man’s voice, she freaked out and demanded it go away immediately…and followed by frantically burning sage throughout the house just to ensure that she wasn’t dealing with a negative entity trying to take control over her.

If the voice sounds like your own, you may doubt it as your mind rather than your Higher Self.  And if the voice sounds like a stranger, your “fight or flight” reaction could take over…along with the fear that your head will soon do a 360 on your own neck, and you lack the acquaintance of a priest brave enough to lock himself in a room with you for an all-night exorcism.

Words.  They aren’t that dependable.

Requiring your answer delivered by words is simply leftover ingrained programming from a society that seeks to control those who won’t make decisions for themselves. If you are reading this, then you are moving away from that programming, and you are moving towards sovereignty.

So next time you ask a question, send out an intention with it:

“I would like the answer to come to me in a manner that alleviates doubt as to the legitimacy of the message.”

And one more thing you may need to face:

Every voice is YOURS, no matter if it sounds like Grandma, your creepy next door neighbor, or your own.

It takes a bit of time to transmute those old doubts, and so we take small steps in the recognition of ourselves being the creator of our reality.  We still tend to believe information delivered from external resources over internal messages, and so we unconsciously label the speaker as someone other than ourselves in order to suspend the doubt and accept the message.

So when you hear Grandma’s voice answering your question, you may feel more comfortable with that soft, gentle tone.  And that’s totally OK.

But no matter which voice is delivering words to you, there is one more step, which transcends the content of the sentence.  It requires you to FEEL in addition to listening:

Check with your gut about the answer you’ve received.

Your gut never lies.  Never. Ever. Ever.

Your Higher Self speaks to you through the gut.

So it really doesn’t matter whose voice is speaking to you, because words are filtered through the brain every time. Your Higher Self doesn’t bother with the brain, since it’s undependable, it’s programmable, and it’s fickle. And God forbid, you leave out a comma.

Practice discernment by picking up the internal “red phone” connected directly to your gut, and your answer will be there, at the other end of the line, every time.

Eventually, you will feel more comfortable jettisoning the words, and your answers will come to you in a variety of ways, all of which, in my opinion, are more comprehensive, more colorful, and much more fun.

when you lose a pet
Life on Earth,

Losing a Pet

It’s hard enough when Lightworkers lose most of their friends, but when the pets go too, great reckonings can occur.

As we expand, our frequency rises to attract those of like vibration to us.  That’s why, when you do the inner work and relieve yourself of those negative belief systems while your friends are out getting drunk, that you end up alone for a while.  It’s natural for we hermits to want some companionship, and turn to our pets for salvation.

Animals are a gift to this earth.  They’ve been placed here to assist us in our growth: by the way we treat them, the quality of life we provide for them, and as a measure of the power struggle between man and beast.

Often, pets are the saving grace from near-insanity while awakening individuals spend immense amounts of time separated from the public, focusing their efforts within on self-improvement.  Looking over at a cat curled up on the sofa can be enough to stave off the loneliness.



When we interact in a one-on-one basis with animals, we infuse them with our frequency.  Every animal that interacts with a human gets a special badge on its signature; loving attention given to them while incarnated increases their frequency and provides them with a broader perspective of love than animals who don’t interact with humans.

If you’re interested in reading more about this, Dolores Cannon’s book Between Death and Life: Conversations with a Spiritis a good place to start.

Know that when a pet leaves Earth, it is welcomed back to Source in its own manner, with love and respect.  The contribution of this beautiful soul is recognized not only by those of us left behind, but also from the non-physical side as well.  And remember, pets often come back into new bodies and make their way back to you!  Look for similar quirks when you’re ready to add another animal into your life.

As for you, you get a badge on your signature as well.  For you’ve shown great responsibility in caring for, loving, and cherishing a soul that often required your selfless contribution of time and money; with an intangible—yet priceless—return on your investment.  This is a great opportunity for expansion.

Love to you!

RIP Taquita.

Cheers to a dog who, throughout her life, managed to eat an entire bag of Craisins (poison), a one-lb Nestle chocolate bar (poison), 3-dozen Christmas cookies (poison), and had a miraculous recovery from a scorpion sting through the ingestion of Wisconsin cheddar cheese.  She passed away (no, not from poison!) after a very long life full of love, food and rolling around in the dirt.

 

how well do you trust your eyes
Awakening Rants, Life on Earth, The Esoteric,

Why Do You Trust Your Eyes So Much?

The biggest rift between those asleep and those awake, is the lack of visual proof of the non-physical. If you can’t see it with the naked eye, it doesn’t exist.

Let’s say I see a flash of light from the corner of my eye. Think about how many ways I can attempt to explain away its occurrence:

  • I look for light sources nearby that could cause a reflection
  • I look for pets or people moving in the room
  • I blame it on being tired

Yet once we count out physical causes, there remains a big void where an answer needs to be.

When the soul is ready to explore the unknown during an incarnation, then the mind will start inquiring if there isn’t more to life than the physical things we can see and touch.

And when that box is opened, all sorts of things fly out to be considered.  More occurrences happen for us to inquire about.  Synchronicity after synchronicity pops up and we start making the connection.

This is when we get excited, and begin sharing our experiences with friends.  And much of the time, that excitement is not shared whatsoever, because you’re sharing with a person who still needs a physical explanation for every occurrence.

Proof will require seeing something with the naked eye in order to substantiate its existence.  Otherwise, it doesn’t exist.

Is it a ghost?!
How many ghost-hunting shows are popular on TV?  It’s not real unless you catch it on camera, live!

Is it an angel?!
Since no one brought a camera to Lourdes, the appearance of Mother Mary was deemed mass hysteria.

Is it an alien?!
Two milliseconds of research on YouTube will bring you to a myriad of videos of grainy aliens and big-eyed beings gazing through dark windows.  Hoaxes aside, none that can be “proven,” of course.

 

Most folks vehemently deny the existence of ghosts, angels, and extraterrestrials, since if we can’t see it, it doesn’t exist.

Oh, except for electricity…and wind…and atomic particles.  We make exceptions for things like that.

I find it humorous, and tragic, that we believe our eyes are the most acute of senses; the input mechanism we trust more than any other, despite the fact that 6 out of 10 people need glasses just to function in their day.

If you find yourself in that group that wants visual confirmation of the existence of the non-physical, then you are not alone.  I am in there too, very often, because the programming runs deep in our society.

Yet there is a huge amount of powerful energy floating around you; energy you can tap into at anytime, should you believe that you can.

Do you believe that you can?

how you react to button pushers
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth, Oneness,

Button Pushing: From Asleep to Awake

There will always be people who push your buttons. They can leave you fuming at the ears…but then you remember that you’re awake, and smacking the shit out of them is no longer a viable option.

Those annoying souls are there for your benefit, you know.  An easy thing to forget when they push too far, through word or action.

I had a person in my life who was incapable of making a supportive statement.  OK, let’s be honest:  he’s a dick.

It doesn’t matter if what they say is true for you or not.  Anything presented to you is from that person’s perspective, and reflects their view of the world.  There will always be people to share their opinions with you, unless you decide to be that guy that meditates in a cave for the rest of your life.

So let’s do a little comparison between how you might react to someone pushing your buttons, back when you were asleep, and now that you’re awake.

I’ll share a recent public statement from my personal button-pusher:

A 52 year old woman can go off her meds and talk shit about unicorns and aliens without her friends and relatives catching her and locking her up until she starts taking her meds again. One day she will start to believe the things she says on You Tube and forget there is a difference between fantasy and reality and try to sell her concepts in the real world and then her friends and family will become the elusive unicorn and alien!  Love always!

Seriously! Love always!?

That is the sign of a soul contract, right there.  Or passive aggression.  Probably both.

So how to react to a statement like that?

As an asleep human, I would go into defense mode.

I might refute in anger the untruths of the statement, or…even worse…retaliate with the most painful dagger to his insecurity that I could muster up in a millisecond.

When we’re asleep, we see each other as separate people, at odds with the world and everyone in it. We’ve forgotten that each person we interact with is merely a reflection of ourselves, presenting an opportunity to discover something about us.

 

Now let’s take a look at how awake people could handle the same situation:

An awake human would recognize the opportunity to respond to any statement, whether negative or positive, with kindness and compassion.

The awakened soul will aim to deliver a response that deflects any negativity, through the understanding of the source delivering it.  Knowing that we are all one, looking at life through different eyes, we respond as if we are looking into a mirror. This maintains karmic balance and is self-love at its best.

Those button-pushers are giving you a gift, to practice your compassionate action.  To put yourself in another’s shoes.  To transmute from a reactive separate person, into a better you that understands the connection between all souls, no matter how separate they may feel.

So how did I respond? Well, I won’t claim to be Buddha. Initially, I devised many daggers to fling; but what good does it do other than create more karma for me to balance? So I said nothing until I felt that I could deliver a positive message, one that asserted my choice to detach from consistently negative people.

I’m sure another button-pusher is well on his way into my life, because that’s how we grow.

How blissful it would be if the awakening process were the simple flick of a switch…from Bitch to Buddha in the blink of an eye.

Don’t expect to be a saint; that’s not why you came to Earth at this time.  In this divinely-orchestrated interactive game board, you get the chance to decide, at every moment, who you will be in any situation.  You’ll have plenty of chances to better yourself, I promise!

And don’t forget that sometimes, the biggest button pusher is you, talking to yourself!  All the more opportunity to send love in the wake of statements that lack it.

Love always!

learning to become
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth, Oneness,

Move from a Human Being…to a Human Becoming

Do you want the secret of life?  It’s only one sentence.

Can it be that easy?  Well, easy is an attitude, not a process.  Yes, it can be that easy.

It’s more about your attitude than anything else.

The secret of life:

Move from being a victim to taking personal responsibility for every single thing that has, is, or will be happening to you.

For some people, that statement can be a big jump.  We’ve been programmed to give away our power to others: teachers, parents, the government.  After all, they know best, right?

Nope.  You know what’s best for you.  And you don’t know what’s best for others, so Step One:

Focus on you.

Catch that doubt that just dropped in—about being selfish to think like that—and toss that shit out the window.  That’s programming too, and unless you want to stay a victim, then throw it out. If you want your life to change, then you must put yourself in the forefront of your attention.  You can’t light anyone else’s torch without lighting your own first.

 

Now that we’ve got that down, let’s move to Step Two:

You are a powerful creator, who has decided to put a small portion of yourself into a low-vibrational state that looks solid, and you made that portion of you forget that you put yourself there.  

You then set out to reconnect with the other parts of yourself, both visible and invisible. Part of the process of awakening is about remembering that you put yourself in the physical realm in the first place; and that most of you is somewhere else, waiting for you to acknowledge it. Once you have that connection back, you’ll realize the truth of yourself as the creator, by tapping into Universal wisdom that demonstrates, through “coincidences” and synchronicities, that your thoughts are manifesting into the physical.

The Universal laws apply whether you remember them or not. That’s how victims stay victims; by consistently thinking victim thoughts, labeling themselves and others as victims, thus attracting yet more situations of victimhood.  This will continue until one realizes the correlation of their thoughts to their reality.  If this is you, then you are well on your way to recognizing this truth.  It’s a good time to change, if you are tired of being a victim.

Once you understand that you created your reality, then you must take responsibility for every single thing that has happened to you, and also for your judgment of it.  Any feelings of victimhood were simply a choice, and other choices are always available.

If you’re reading this, you are realizing this truth.  As you cognize this truth, you will readily take back the power you previously relinquished to others and you will use this power to create a life that you do want.

 

Finally, Step 3 takes over until you’re done around here:

Recognize that the nature of Life is not just BEING, it’s about BECOMING.

This means that you are constantly expanding through the experience of situations and scenarios…situations and scenarios that you have created for that purpose.

“Being” changes to “becoming” when we embrace that truth, and allowing the higher self to take the joystick to steer us in the direction of our desires.  The act of “becoming” is a dynamic state, rather than a static one.

Ready to try it?  You can start with a mantra, stated with intention and resolve to live your life as a creator who, although you can’t see the whole picture yet, knows that other parts of you can.  It’s just a simple request for assistance:

“I’m a human becoming…help me to become!”

You can use anything you like to speak to the higher part of yourself that can see where you’re headed.  Since you’re endowed with free will, other aspects of “you” will only assist when asked to do so.  It’s you requesting help from yourself, so there’s never any power relinquished in such a statement.

Making the shift from “being” to “becoming” aligns you with the secret of life by right use of the main Universal laws that govern creation:

  • Law of Attraction, by drawing to you the people, events and situations that match your current vibration.
  • Law of Intent, by your stating your particular desires for expansion, and focusing on them with feeling.
  • Law of Allowance, by asking for a bit of help from other parts of you that can see more of the picture.

An entire world is out there for the creating. If you can imagine it, it exists.  Self-empowerment is the secret!

how to know that you're over your ex
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth,

How Awake People Know They’re Over an Ex

So you’re waking up, and you’ll see some relationships fall away. The inward journey then begins, where you might replay situations over in your head in an attempt to find out what went wrong.  Was it you?  Was it them? Will you ever get over it?

Simply being awake doesn’t necessarily mean that the end of relationships is any easier.  In fact, when you allow yourself to actually FEEL, you could experience pain that you would have previously pushed aside or stuffed down in order to move on with your life.

That’s great!  Feel it! It sucks, I know.  I’ve had my heart broken into minuscule pieces and stomped on, as I’m certain you’ve had too.

And I’m sure that you know by now that stuffing those feelings down, whether it be emotionally, physically or spiritually, doesn’t serve you.  Not only do you fail to glean the lesson from the relationship, you’ll also dredge up those unaddressed issues in future relationships unless you clear them out.

There are plenty of ways to do this, including counseling, crying uncontrollably on the floor for a while, or writing in a journal. Feel that stuff, and let it go.

So how do you know when you are fully over someone, and ready to move on to another relationship?

I made a handy chart for you.

how to know that you're over your ex

Note that at the beginning of a breakup, you may experience base feelings such as hate, anger, jealousy and other immediate reactions.  Such feelings are associated with the lower two chakras: the base chakra and the sacral chakra.  These are common initial responses to a breakup.

As you heal—and not generally in a linear fashion, as denoted by the jagged line—your focus will move upward to the higher chakras; feelings related to those energy centers will be more balanced, and head towards greater respect and compassion for your ex. These include acceptance (solar plexus), forgiveness (heart) and wishing your ex well on his or her journey (throat chakra).

Still further along in your healing, you’ll finally move to gratitude and thankfulness for their contribution to your lesson.

This shows that you’ve created a balance among the upper energy centers of the third eye (seeing the reason for the relationship) and the crown chakra (thanking your ex for his or her contribution to your growth.)

How long does this take?  Unfortunately, there is no set formula. Variables such as the length of your relationship, the magnitude of the soul lesson, and whether others (such as children) are affected, will all determine your particular healing path.

What’s important is your recognition of your progress!  Are you able to look back at the person you WERE, and compare it with the person you are NOW?  Such comparisons are the only ones worth making, so please recognize and honor yourself for your growth.

This will prepare you for the next relationship as a better, more loving partner.

Love to you!

do you know what you really want?
Awakening Rants, Featured, Life on Earth,

Do You Give Yourself What You Want? Do You Even Know What You Want?

Awakening souls journey through the process of ridding ourselves of unwanted things.  People, jobs, non-serving habits, and a lot of stuff, all find their way out of our lives as we expand beyond the illusion in which we’ve been living.

This is great for reducing the clutter that monopolizes our mind processes, freeing up space in our lives for us to enjoy being, rather than protecting, insuring, coddling and storing things that no longer serve a purpose for us.

Following this process certainly lightens up the load, yet it may also dredge up an issue that might need addressing:

Do you really know what you want?

The other day, I saw a crocheted handbag that was really cool.  A basic design, neutral color, and the perfect size.  I loved it the minute I saw it.  The price was fair.  It would fill in a huge gap in my wardrobe. And I didn’t buy it.

Why? Well, I told myself at the time, “you have plenty of bags, you don’t need another one.” And yes, although I do have a few handbags left in my collection, I definitely didn’t have one that looked like this or would serve its particular purpose.

So I went away, and yet I couldn’t drop the idea of owning that bag, and how useful it would be. It kept popping up, despite my attempts to put it out of my mind.  And when that happens, that’s a sign that there is a lesson in the situation.

So I sat down, and I followed my feelings about the process of buying something I wanted.

I realized that I was unable to recognize the difference between my own desires, and those of the people that benefit from selling me things.

Our society bombards us with desires that really aren’t ours at all.  They are the desires of those who want you to buy their products, their services, or their opinion about something.  They stream emotional images, words and concepts to affect your most vulnerable parts.

“You’ll be more attractive if you buy this.”

“You’ll never be happy unless you have this.”

“If you want to be like us, then you must do this…”

 

It’s no wonder that awakening people are gun-shy about making decisions, for we question the integrity behind the motives of those offering things to us.  We increasingly recognize the shadiness behind many actions—the secrecy, the lies and the misinformation. And knowing these things can send us into a tizzy of inaction altogether.

So in the case of the bag, I was rendered unable to make a decision about whether or not I really needed the bag. I subconsciously worried if I weren’t going to revert to the shallow, materialistic consumer I had evolved from, who collected things for the sake of impressing others with the sheer volume of ownership.

Sitting a while longer brought options to light. For example, I could donate an older bag that I no longer found useful, in order to make room for this one that was.

Andby the time I went back for the bag, it was gone.

So next time you are faced with a decision about whether or not to add something to your collection, ask yourself to feel out three things:

Do you really want it?

Would you really use it?

Does it bring you joy?

If you can answer “yes” to these three simple questions, then you’ve got every right to have it.  Your soul knows the answer to these questions, even if your befuddled mind does not; and it sees beyond the illusion of advertising and skillful emotional manipulation.

You are a good person.  And you can have what you want, so make sure to define what that really is!
