True Awakening Stories to inspire you through this great time of Awakening…

March 20, 2021

For many years my Divine friends and myself have been writing passionately about our own Awakening and Ascension experience, sharing with our readers how our Awakening changed us for the better, what we went through and what we gave up or changed for us to be able to move forward in a new way.

AND now, as the light floods the Earth plane like never before, it is time for mass consciousness to make a choice about how each wants to live their lives! Whether it’s to follow their inner knowing that enough is enough and quite simply step out of the low frequency world of duality and step into a high frequency world of unity and harmony, or ignore the inner nudge and remain deeply anchored within the suffering, pain and limitation.

It all simply does begin with a choice❤️

My own Awakening seemed so easy, so inevitable and I thought everyone would sense the Game being played, the propaganda dished out and the lies and confusion! Clues are everywhere, so obvious especially when you do a little research… and it all points to… listen to your own inner knowing… give yourself time to become familiar with yourself and life’s synchronicities that will lead you to realise just how powerful and magnificent you truly are!

Finally you realise feeling powerless and numb is all part of the conditioning and illusion. Just an experience, a perception that has a purpose and can so easily be changed by you!

This long lasting pantomime, The 2020 Pandemic, has a purpose too. It is reminding Humanity to go within, to reconnect with your body, mind AND spirit, to get to know self and listen to that inner voice that wants nothing more than to embrace you. And for you to feel and know, this Divine loving essence is truly YOU and wants nothing more than to gently guide you through this great transformation, taking you beyond the illusion and dual reality into a new experience of love, joy and peace.

However, so many people don’t seem to be waking up! And many who are claiming to be AWAKE seem to be only pointing the finger, calling people, judging them for choosing something different than themself. Choosing to remain asleep, powerless and numb.

If you feel into the energy of life now… it really can seem quite hopeless❤️

I understand that it is very disappointing to see so many people choosing to believe the lies and manipulation, wearing the mask, social distancing and taking the vaccinate to comply with regulations to be able to travel, to go to events and to go back to living normally… but we must remember how everyone has freewill to choose.

So… let us all breathe life in… just as it is, the good, the bad and ugly, relax and remember to trust this journey we chose. Trust ourself to journey through this time, shining our light like never before, being the example of magnificence for many newly awakening Humans. Allowing them to feel our love and commitment, inspiring them to focus within and reunite with their own Divine self, feeling their own loving presence. Knowing it is not for anyone to judge self or another, only accept, care and understand we are all on a unique journey.

I have been on this journey for a long long time and I know love has won and trust us all to come through this great transformation that is nearing its end. I trust that there are more people awake and acting as their sovereign and free selves, than we are being led to believe. Together we are changing the world with each breath we breathe, goodbye world of fear, guilt and shame, hello world of love, joy and peace. We are all truly magnificent.❤️

Today IAM sharing Heather’s true Awakening story, gentle wise words for you to resonate with, to help you remember who you truly are and inspire you to go through this great shift of consciousness in all ease and grace.

Heather’s Awakening Experience and Moving On…

I was born free, free of any fears or limitations and blissfully happy! This would all end fairly soon for me, just as with many of us, as I had been born into a dysfunctional family. There was really very little room for me to be free any longer once I selected this family. I was shut down over the years and frequently heard the chorus of no, shouldn’t, what would others think, and so much more. Also the continuous chime of being called clumsy over and over again. I began to believe I was not athletic, and that I was in fact clumsy. You might say this is where my own feelings of ‘less than’ began and where my separation from my spiritual self took root. If I only knew then what I know now. Perhaps I did know and selected this life experience as a lesson to grow, some karma payment from past lives. This I do not fully comprehend, but I do understand I let go of my freedom and bound myself into a cage of I am not enough, which we all know is being separate from our spiritual self because when we stand fully in the knowledge of who we are, we are all enough.

Intermittently I was sufficiently awakened to see through this façade. I found myself loving nature, rocks and the soothing balm of the outdoors. It spoke to me; it gave me comfort when none was to be had by my parental unit. I collected rocks from a very young age on; they fascinated me as I could feel their heart beats in my hands. Some of this was encouraged as a hobby, and I was given rock tumblers and more. However, I wanted to collect them, arrange them and talk to them not so much make things out of them. Soon, I would abandon this endeavor too and I was lost. I tried to comply with all that was requested of me. I tried to be a good girl, the one being requested of me by my familial unit and that of society.

As I approached my teenage years, and grew into my womanhood, my parents were unprepared (as many are) to handle any number of things ranging from sexuality to the evolving drug culture, and I was shunned even more. Now younger siblings had also come along, and my life was mired with the incessant noise of toddlers when all I wanted was rock and roll and to be left alone to create and find myself. It was the 70’s after all and I was keenly aware of the awakening taking place all around me.

It was somewhere during this period of time that I found an island, a place where I could fully express myself and discuss my hopes, wants and dreams. I fell in love with a boy you see, or perhaps I fell more in love with his mother. No matter, she touched my soul. She was an artist, a free spirit who always encouraged me and talked to me like an adult. She treated me with respect. And so, I touched once again on my awakening and it felt like pure joy to exist in this place, for a while. As so often happens in the case of young love, the relationship ended. Of course, my own parents were over joyed as they hated all this relationship represented, and were extremely uncomfortable with me coming into my self, a creative, artistic self who communed with rocks and nature. Once again, I fell back into the bubble of fear, that safe place.

I lived here for an expansive period of time. However, all the while something was nagging at me, wake up little one you are worthy, but I slept on. Then one day I began to feel ill. It didn’t happen suddenly, or at least I didn’t notice it all at once. As I got off of a boat in Denmark, I found myself unable to walk very well and the world was spinning. I thought it was the boat ride, little did I know something was growing inside my brain. I was now long married and had a child. I thought I was happy. I was extremely fulfilled in my role as a mother to a most beautiful soul that had chosen me, but I had given away my voice as a mate, as a person on the planet and settled for mediocrity. This was what my parents had taught me, to believe my voice did not matter. I was to go along with and do what was required by society. Never stand out at all costs! But when you are to be doing some other work, sometimes things have to occur to fully grab our attention. Ultimately, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Through all of this, I was once again guided to my spiritual side and to honoring my self. I practiced meditation and all things healing to get me through the ordeal of the surgery. I mean really, who wants their skull opened up and a piece of their gray matter removed? I chose to embrace it all, and looked upon the situation with grace. I had been given a message, and the message was to wake up and to honor myself. These lines from Rumi speak to me about this experience, really about my entire life experience.

When you fall ill, remorse and humility open;
the moment one falls ill, conscience awakens.
When you fall ill, you pray God to forgive your sins.
The murkiness of your error becomes apparent to you,
and you resolve to return to the Way.
You promise and vow that from now on you’ll
choose nothing but obedience to God.
See how illness stirs your conscience and wakes you up.
So pay attention to this principle, O seeker;
Anyone who suffers pain has caught the scent.
The more wakeful anyone is, the more he suffers;
The more spiritually aware he is, the paler is his face.
If you are aware of God’s compelling, where is your humility?
Where is your feeling of being bound by His Omnipotence?
How should one who is bound in chains dance?
Since when does the prisoner act like one who is free?
And if you see that your foot is shackled and that the
Sultan’s officers are keeping watch over you,
don’t act like a tyrant toward those who are helpless,
since that’s not how helpless people act.

Unfortunately, I fell back asleep again. I like to be compliant, and no surprise, I am an introvert. I also like to serve and please, and not to create drama and strife. You want me on your team for getting things done, because I will do as I am told. However, as is the case in life, when the universe wants your attention it will make demands! The angel of death suddenly plucked my husband of almost 20 years away from me just two years after my craniotomy. I was left in a dire mess as he had lied to me about finances, had kept them hidden them from me, and left almost nothing to our minor son and myself. He left it all to his two older, grown college educated, and one married, children. I had no choice but to find my voice, and I did.

I navigated us through a complicated litigation process in order that we have something out of the Estate. You see, working full-time as I had prior to being married was not so much in the cards for me after having brain surgery. While recovered, it greatly affected my spatial recognition and also word retrieval and concentration. No one would know anything was wrong with me, but sitting 40 hours or more a week at a desk as I once did was no longer an option. My husband knew this; he assured me I would never have to worry. I was not concerned; he had a successful law practice. However, I should have been concerned, as he was wrapped up in his own demons over money. As the poem reflects, I lost my humility and thought I was impervious to certain things in life because after all I was married to someone successful. I gave away my voice, just as I had been taught. I gave up who I was, what mattered to me and what I wanted in life. I was still a caged prisoner with one foot shackled.

It wasn’t until I allowed myself to begin dating again some 7 years after his death that I would truly allow myself to become unshackled, but not without becoming a little paler in the face. To begin with, I got into a relationship where I gave away my voice. If you are still reading, you are probably asking yourself what is wrong with this woman? I was trained to be compliant, and who am I to question my journey, or anyone’s journey for that matter? Every step has been important in the awakening of who I am as a human being. As to this relationship, I am not certain how I did this yet again, but I have a sneaking suspicion it had a lot to do with money, a place where I had experienced great wounding. This man offered me a lifetime of never having to worry about it, you see he was a trust fund baby with millions in his bank account and had never worked a day in his life. It represented safety to me! He offered me “forever”. Alas, he was a narcissist. The worst possible love match for a person like me, or anyone really. The universe has to get in your face and scream sometimes, especially with someone like me where it is so deeply imbedded that I am not enough as a woman and that by my mere rank, I am second class.

It was the culmination of these many events that finally stirred me from my cage. This time I become fully in touch with my spiritual side, reading, studying everything and I continue to grow it with each and every day. I am attempting to keep the door open to abundance by practicing gratitude. I am a work in progress, and I have found my voice! I am empowered. I truly believe that the universe is the stage on which you dance, guided by your heart. I am attempting to live with an open heart, and to forgive all those that held me back along my path, and perhaps they did not hold me back at all, but rather were guiding me to my true authentic self. It is after all my path and my responsibility as to how I travel it, as victim or as love.

Mother nature is speaking to me once again and I have surrounded myself with a beautiful collection of rocks and crystals. No matter what anyone says about crystals, my studying them, or using them for healing I am not yielding this time. There will be no loss of voice, no being that clumsy girl who has no confidence in herself, the introvert who only wants to please. I may have been raised to believe that others would provide for me if I were simply a good, compliant girl and by societal conventions this was what I was supposed to do. Mediocrity is not my emotional home, and I have thankfully found that I can only rely on my self and that I am worthy, smart, and gifted. I am only gaining strength and confidence. This is the path I am on and how I became awakened to my gifts, the gifts that we all come into the world with and have a duty to share.

I am no longer bound to a cage of not enough! I thank you Barbara for providing this opportunity to write about it and for all of you that have read my story and for sharing your own stories. We are all interconnected and like a ripple of water we touch one another and my goal is to be love with that touch. Yes, I am still an introvert, and still like to be a caregiver, but I am learning to do these things without giving up who and what I am. Thank you for not judging me, and I too will, as Rumi’s poem says, not act like a tyrant toward those who are helpless, since that is not how helpless people act. Namaste…

Affects and Changes of the Awakening Earth and the Humanity

The Earth and Humankind are all part of a Natural Shift of Consciousness that is occurring now. Our solar system finds itself surrounded by a higher expansional energy; a new energy that we have called forth in our declaration for no more fear, greed and power-mongering. 

It is an energy that resonates with LOVE. Love that Humans have learned to FEEL here on Earth. A love that creates DivineHumanBeings, allowing them to live in a peaceful and harmonious surrounding on Earth. 

This new energy, of intense light actually affects the magnetic make-up of our whole solar system. Creating intense magnetic storms on our sun, where strong solar flares reach the Earths orbit and interfere with the magnetics within the Earth and the Human Being.

The Human body contains millions of tiny magnetic particles that interconnect through Human antennas to the Earth’s magnetic field, enabling the Human to receive and transmit consciousness which influence the physical body and all its internal systems.

The interference of the magnetic field is causing a cleansing effect on Earth, physical shifting and shaking the earth and her inhabitants, creating unusual weather patterns and within the Human Being; cleansing people from all their fears and yesterdays. It is actually the most beautiful gift that we can receive. 

Intense light to naturally awaken our consciousness, changing our DNA and crystalising our molecules. Our inner light, our being is being ignited anew, clearing our body of past debris, burning away everything that no longer serves us, leaving nothing but pure love and passion within each Human Being and the Earth.

During this Shift in Consciousness… our Awakening is affecting our mental, emotional and physical bodies, pulling us all ways and putting us through some uncomfortable and painful times. Not only are we integrating and releasing all our own past life patterns and karma that no longer serves us, but that of all our ancestors that have lived before us. 

Our Body Consciousness; Body, Mind and Spirit is naturally finding a new balance.

It is most important neither to fight nor to give in, but to trust that everything is all so perfect. This is our journey that we have chosen to live now so let’s enjoy the ride and allow our Embodied Ascension to happen quite naturally.

Awakening Symptoms

Physical… Aches and pains in the joints, especially neck, shoulders and back, heat sensations beyond the menopause, feeling hot and cold, feeling dizzy and shaky, vertigo, ringing in the ears, nauseous, itchy skin, red patchy skin especially the face, exhaustion and feeling tired, waking up a lot, headaches and migraine, stomach aches and indigestion, no appetite, extremes of diarrhea and constipation, eating a lot, heart palpitations, irregular heartbeat 

Emotional… Crying, deep sadness, confused, nervousness, passionless 

Mental… Anxious, intense dreaming, loneliness, not thinking straight, losing words, depressed 

Barbara’s suggestions for more comfort

Consciously breathing in the new energy, especially in painful areas for at least 10 mins. a day, healthy daily eating of protein, good fats, lots of fruit and veg, drink plenty of fresh water, moderate use of caffeine, coffee, tea and alcohol, positive and loving self talk, soaking the body in Epsom salts and lavender oil, walking in nature or some form of gentle exercise you enjoy 20 mins a day, sleep a lot… napping through the day if possible, trust yourself… even when doubt tries to creep into your mind.

    This journey does give us those harsh times simply because if it didn’t we will never see and appreciate what those happy times are. If we do not experience them with what do we compare…anything to. It is only when we lose something, especially love, that we fully appreciate what we are doing and see that we are indeed compromising ‘us’ to achieve it. When we finally see our own love, that love and happiness we have always looked for, only then will all that we have endured be seen as a beautiful journey, the very things needed to pries us from our cages and finally be free. The day that moment is reached a true heartfelt happiness is achieved, and the ultimate knowledge that our journey has gone exactly where it was meant to achieve this very place in our hearts. A great post Heather, and a very healing one to find you ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
