Twelve Days of Christmas Prompt… Christmas Time… A Perfect Time…

images-59My good friend Sindy Sue came up with a lovely prompt for ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’… to connect and share together our thoughts on Christmas… Thankyou Sindy Sue for yet another great challenge…

Christmas Time… A Perfect Time..

To take some quiet moments for yourself…
Reflecting on your life…
Clearing out things that no longer serve you…
Creating space for new potential to come in…

To treat yourself to something special…
Relaxing into yourself…
Having fun and laughter…
Indulging in life’s beauty and grace…

To belief and trust yourself implicitly…
Knowing all your heartfelt desires come true…
Allowing yourself to shine brightly…
Touching and influencing people you meet…

To allow yourself to feel the magic…
Of childhood innocence, spontaneous and daring ways…
Imagining parallel worlds coming together as one…
Seeing angels, fairies, elementals, Santa and the bogeyman too…

To play with your creative talents…
Creating heartfelt gifts for family and friends…
Showing them your gratefulness and love…
For being a part of your life…

To light candles in a gesture of LOVE to others…
Remembering dear ones that have passed over…
Family and Friends far away…
Others who may be ill, in pain, hungry or lonely…

To help people in your community…
Giving your time, energy, money or unwanted goods…
Redistributing and sharing wealth, health and kindness… 
Bringing smiles and joy to others…

To decorate your home as a reflection of you…
The lights being a manifestation of love…
Preparing home cooked goodies to nourish and share…
To encourage merriment and joy…

To sing out loud in joyous tones…
Listening, Hugging and hopeful kisses
Being thankful for all life’s gifts…
And the magical feeling this Christmas time…

Christmas Time… A perfect time… 
to prepare to welcome in… 
a harmonious and peaceful… 
New Year… 2014…

I actually dreamed the other night about my bogeyman who I was quite fearful of during my childhood… he wanted to be part of my christmas poem and give me a message… He thought it was an appropriate time to meet again…

images-61IAM not here to hurt you… but IAM very real… just as real as loving spirit friends…
IAM an accumulation of everything bad and sad that people have done to themself and each other… the horrific acts, the pain, the guilt, the shame, the loneliness, the abandonment and all the unloved feelings…
IAM a dark energy that only wants to capture your attention, wants you to feel the fear, be the fear and as I steal the fear from you… I increase my presence to attract my next prey…

Until… a time that your light shines on me…
and you dare invite me in… in love, not fear…

Demanding I return your fearful energy…
as now you understand… it is all just energy
and cannot harm you, only stop you from
moving on…
images-62So receive your energy back with welcoming arms and allow it to transform into love, trust, or some new potential for yourself…

The lingering fears that don’t belong to you, but still reside within… can be sent 
back to their rightful place… just demand them to leave your body and they will return to a neutral state until their owner claims them… and transform them into new
potential for themself…

I actually saw many of my child self’s walking back to me… I felt so much love and so complete…

Best Wishes to all my friends here on wordpress… Thankyou for connecting with me… Have a magical and mindful Christmas time with your family and friends…. May 2014 bring you health, wealth and much joy…

Challenge 2014… My Awakening Experience and Moving Forward…

1342166455172272I have had so much good feelings, feedback and inspiration since writing my post about the stages of awakening… that I really want to go a stage further… and create together with my friends within WordPress (and outside… *see comment at the end)…     ‘A selection of True Awakening Experiences’, put together in a ‘Free E Book’ so that we can ALL share it on our own blog to help inspire others… (maybe giving it away to people who sign up to our blogs, increasing our circle of friends/community…)

I love challenges, especially ones that you do together with others… So here goes…

December holidays… A quiet time to reflect on our life, in preparation of moving forward into a new year, new times, new ways, new dreams, new energy…

So what better time than the month of January to post our individual awakening experiences… a post a day… creating 31 different experiences…  The posts can link in with the different stages of awakening (as a common reference point)… but it’s not about who is at what stage… we are all on different journeys and most likely different stages…. it doesn’t matter…  It’s about recognising where we find ourself… reminding ourself that everything is perfectly OK and encourages us to keep moving forward and create a joyous life for ourself and our family and friends… no matter what…

We can all find ourself in one of the stages…  some even creating the fifth and sixth stage… It’s been a long crawl for a lot of ‘us oldies’, it’s taken me about 27 years until now… for the younger ones… they have the opportunity to quantum leap now…

So who resonates with this… will you join me?  Do you have friends who would like to join in… Can we gather 31 friends together?   I will kick-start this challenge on January 1st writing about my own awakening experience…  

I propose the following…
Keep our experience simple and to the point,  say +/- 1200 – 1500 words…

Post title… My Awakening Experience and Moving Forward… 

Linking in the different stages… 
*Remembering My Childhood… and ‘if applicable’ Shutting down the contact with my soul to fully experience my humanness…
*First Stage of Awakening… My Call to Attention…
*Second Stage of Awakening… Dismantling my Life…
*Third Stage of Awakening… Glimpses of Clarity and Releasing Human Desperation
*Fourth Stage of Awakening… Quiet Time and Potentialising…

Please write a short piece about yourself, your life and what you are doing/being… Being the change you want to see in the world… Making a difference… Being joy… Being the best you can… under your circumstances…

At the bottom of the post Copy/Paste the list of links to other blogs participating in this challenge with tomorrows in bold…

*People outside of WordPress will either need to join wordpress or send me your experience by email to barbara@memymagnificentself.com and I will publish it on your behalf…

Please let me know, at your earliest convenience, which date you would like to post your awakening experience… On the date you publish, or sooner if you have it ready, please send me a ‘word’ copy in font ariel 12 to my email barbara@memymagificentself.com to be included in a pdf file for our ‘Free E Book’…

If you have any helpful additions to make about the Free E Book, please let me know…

IAM Barbara Franken… Inspiring New Energy Consciousness… and so excited about this adventure together…

Awakening to who you truly are…

Based on my own ‘long’ awakening experience and the awakening of my sacred friends, the teachings of Adamus from the Crimson Circle and the research of Heather Carlini from the Carlini Institute… I have written the following piece on Awakening to who you truly are… In the hope that it helps people understand what is happening to them now… allowing their fears and pains to come home to them peacefully.. and with acceptance and consciously breathing… realise their soul’s desire…

IMG_1076

One heart at a time, people are naturally awakening after a long and hard ‘human’ experience… You remember that you are so much more than your physical human body, mind and the five senses you have used…  You know that this awakening is part of a natural cycle of stages…  stages that at times you thought, you were going nowhere or even backwards… but the divine part of you had it perfectly timed in all ways… You are part of this grand natural awakening of humankind, part of an expanded cosmic happening… The integration of your Humanness and your Divineness… The full blossoming or enlightenment that allows you, DivineHumanBeing to consciously live on Earth as a Sovereign and Magnificent Being… A Living Ascended Master

I feel and see MAGIC everywhere…

I have felt for quite a while that IAM walking in two worlds… one part of me firmly anchored into Mother Earth, consciously breathing in the loving life force that IAM, living in each moment and being true to myself and my soul’s dream… and the other ‘human’ part of me, seems to be practicing an increased amount of ‘doubt’… instead of my normal feeling and responding to my human experience in a loving way… IAM hearing my mind’s voice shouting quite loudly ‘what’s happening’, ‘what can I do’, ‘I said it wrong’, ‘they don’t care’, ‘I didn’t do it right’ and on and on and on…  I even went to bed the night before last asking for help…. It felt like I couldn’t get out of this rut… Continue reading
