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 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 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…

  1. great idea. may be interested, but do not have MS office at this time. I do have txt files though. Let me know if there is any flexibility with the structure Barbara. I would have to guess about these stages……

    xx Linda

    • oh course IAM flexible… I will transfer it into word for you… at least try… and guessing is always good… it is about creating a thin red line throughout all the experiences, for easier understanding… I hope… Barbara

    • Hi Sarah… Just been to your lovely creative blog… as I didn’t know you… but now I do… Glad you like this idea and it would be great for you to write about your own awakening experience on the 7th… thank you… IAM sure this is going to be the start of a lovely friendship… Barbara

  3. Reblogged this on my chronic life journey and commented:
    Barbara, over at Me, My Magnificent Self is setting up a January challenge to write an E-book with 31 stories about real people’s Awakenings and how they’re moving forward.

    I’ve signed up to add my story but we still need a few other people to join to get the 31 stories.

    Head over and see if you’d be interested in joining us.

  4. Ok, just seeing an open date list here… if the 24th is still available I will take it. Neil Diamond and I count this day as special as it is the one we made our grand entrances on to the earth stage on :). -x.M

    • Thank you Dace… I do hope my stages didn’t come over too structural… I just thought it would be easier to follow… Each heart that is awakening has its own story and structure… and everything is as it is… Barbara

  5. I would like to be the 28th if that is okay. I thought I read something about a certain format. Did I see something like that? I love the idea of those who are doing the work grouping together. It gives me much hope.

  6. Hello, Ive been away from blog for a while but am glad to see the message you left on my blog! thanks!
    Sure. I am interested 🙂 Could I take the 28th slot? 🙂

  7. Reblogged this on Soul Fields and commented:
    Thank you, Beautiful People, for all your heart warming Christmas wishes! Here is a wonderful writing challenge from Barbara you might want to join in and/or follow. Towards a magnificent new year ~~~~~~~

  8. What a wonderful creative idea, and sorry Barbara, I had missed this post, not surprising given the amount of WP emails still unread in my inbox.. 🙂 I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas, We did.. And sending you all the best for 2014..
    Thank you for dropping in and leaving me the invite, I would be delighted.. and so Barbara, if the 23rd hasn’t gone then put me down for that One Please…or the nearest end date of January as it will give me more time to prepare…

  9. What a wonderful idea this is, Barbara. Love your enthusiasm here, your vibe 🙂

    I particularly like the “forgive me if I try to change” – very true. People can’t handle it!

    Good luck with all your goals, Barbara, sincere regards to you. Noeleen

    • Hi Noeleen, Losing so much of my old life, I resonated with the saying when I came across it on the internet… I heard myself say it to my ex husband, old friends, jobs and situations… Thanks for enjoying the read and your kind comments… and yes here’s to creating our hearts desires… Barbara
