January Challenge… Our Awakening Experiences…

DSC03473I was having a little fun dressing up as a beautiful knight in shining armour… All dressed up to show off my importance and to protect myself from the demands of others… Haven’t we come a long way since these days of knowing no better than to fight the good fight and conquer material things in recognition of our MAGNIFICENCE…

It’s the last day of January and I thought I would post a short piece in recognition of January’s Challenge and our daily posts recalling the personal experiences of our awakening… Recognising that there is indeed more than we physically perceive, that we are truly part of source, god, love or anything else we like to call the energy that everything is made up of… We are all, each in our own time and unique way naturally awakening, bringing the human being to the next frequency, vibration, level…

There have been a few ‘enlightened’ masters before us who have passed over… Ascended Masters who continue to watch over us… but now it is time for the awakened human being to take the next quantum leap and allow their own enlightening and ascension to take place here on earth… It is time for many embodied ascended masters, from all across the world, from each community, region and culture to anchor the new energy consciousness in their own unique and magnificent way… co-creating a peaceful and harmonious earth… right here and now…

If you have been reading each day the collection of awakening experiences and journey’s into love that we are sharing together, you will have felt as I do… so connected, so inspired and so grateful with all our friendships here on wordpress… My heart has opened wide in the understanding of our individual uniqueness, yet resonating with the similarities of our life experiences…

IAM so thankful to you all and I know we are creating together a magnificent E Book for others to read our amazing awakening experiences and journey in life… I have my magical 33 number of amazing people for this challenge which runs until February 8th… After which I will put all the stories together and present a lovely E Book to you all, to share around the world… to help keep our own inspiration and creation going strong and that of many others… who are now on the verge of their own awakening…

So I say CHEERS to you all… and to continuing our awakening experiences into February…

In Memory of Vicky Bruce for my friend Tersia

As Tersia says… ‘Death is the only certainty in life! We need to remember that our existence here is fragile, and we never have as much time with people as we think we do. If there is someone or someones out there that you love, don’t neglect that and don’t put off engaging with them because death waits for no-one’… Please share this blog post… It is more than time that we looked after each other until the end… Barbara

I received the best gift for my Birthday… My New Home…

Looking up from the garden...

Looking up from the garden…

Tom and I had planned a whole 6 months to find our next home, the place we could nurture ‘us’ for the next part of our journey… We arrived a couple of days ago in Benalmadena… A place my father and sister told us about… and loved to visit… So of course we had to come and visit and see for ourselves what Benalmadena was all about… Last year in fact we came for a weeks golfing holiday… We were very impressed, not that we visited much of the big town…just the marina… a place we liked and could see ourselves living in… swaying among the yachts in the harbour…

Anyway we are here again… and just to make sure Benalmadena was the place for us, we travelled further down south to Estapona and travelled back up checking out all the towns in-between Estapona and Malaga.. making sure we weren’t missing out on anything…  It took us one day, arriving back in Benalmadena… Tom took a wrong turn on one of the roundabouts and passed a lovely piece of rugged coast and apartments… I was quite busy telling him… ‘this is the wrong road’… but looking at the apartments I saw the buildings were called… Santa Maria…

Later that evening we ate at a lovely Italian restaurant, with my dad, who had joined us here for his holiday.. and saw the sun set… we took pictures of the lovely apartments that were here on the marina… This is where we wanted to live… Benalmadena and in particular the marina…

Early next day, we made our way to the local real estate office… and asked to be shown apartments available at the marina… She had one available and could show us that afternoon… together with another apartment just down the road on a beautiful part of the beach… it was called Santa Maria… My ears pricked up and I just knew that we had to see it… (I had seen and heard this name come to my attention for quite a while lately…)

The apartment we saw at the marina was lovely… but the apartment at the beach was the one for us… My wish was for a garden, a pool, near the beach and sea, a bath in the bathroom, big kitchen and rooms and a grand balcony… It ticked all my boxes…

and what do you know… this apartment was on the road that Tom accidentally took yesterday… the apartments Santa Maria…

I trusted that, as always my wishes would be/are granted… by myself… by the universe… I know that to TRUST… brings everything together…

Here are our pictures… enjoy…. IAM so happy… happy… happy… it is my birthday and my gift to myself… a new home for tommy and me to expand, to be at peace… to explore….

IAM Barbara… Inspiring New Energy Consciousness…

It’s so funny because it’s so true… Where are we going with our nonsense…

trafalgar21

I just had to share this funny joke… because it is so true… we have come such a long way with our desire for equality, health, safety and freedom… but we just don’t know when to stop… enough is enough… where are we going with our nonsense… It’s time to wake up and realise that the joke is on us…

Nelson: “Order the signal, Hardy.”

Hardy: “Aye, aye sir.”

Nelson: “Hold on, this isn’t what I dictated to Flags. What’s the meaning of this?”

Hardy: “Sorry sir?”

Nelson (reading aloud): ” England expects every person to do his or her duty, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious persuasion or disability. ‘What gobbledygook is this for God’s sake?”

Hardy: “Admiralty policy, I’m afraid, sir. We’re an equal opportunities employer now. We had the devil’s own job getting ‘ England ‘ past the censors, lest it be considered racist.”

Nelson: “Gadzooks, Hardy Hand me my pipe and tobacco.”

Hardy: “Sorry sir. All naval vessels have now been designated smoke-free working environments.”

Nelson: “In that case, break open the rum ration. Let us splice the main brace to steel the men before battle.”

Hardy: “The rum ration has been abolished, Admiral. It’s part of the Government’s policy on binge drinking.”

Nelson: “Good heavens, Hardy. I suppose we’d better get on with it, full speed ahead.”

Hardy: “I think you’ll find that there’s a 4 knot speed limit in this stretch of water. It’s an environment protection initiative.”

Nelson: “Damn it man! We are on the eve of the greatest sea battle in history. We must advance with all dispatch. Report from the crow’s nest, please.”

Hardy: “That won’t be possible, sir.”

Nelson: “What?”

Hardy: “Health and Safety have closed the crow’s nest, Sir. No harness; and they said that rope ladders don’t meet regulations. They won’t let anyone up there until proper scaffolding can be erected.”

Nelson: “Then get me the ship’s carpenter without delay, Hardy.”

Hardy: “He’s busy knocking up a wheelchair access to the foredeck Admiral.”

Nelson: “Wheelchair access? I’ve never heard anything so absurd.”

Hardy: “Anti-discrimination requirements, sir. We have to provide a barrier-free environment for the differently abled…..”

Nelson: “Differently abled? I’ve only one arm and one eye and I refuse even to hear mention of the word. I didn’t rise to the rank of Admiral by playing the disability card.”

Hardy: “Actually, sir, you did. The Royal Navy is under-represented in the areas of visual impairment and limb deficiency.”

Nelson: “Whatever next? Give me full sail. The salt spray beckons.”

Hardy: “A couple of problems there too, sir. Health and safety won’t let the crew up the rigging without hard hats. And they don’t want anyone breathing in too much salt; haven’t you seen the adverts?”Nelson: “I’ve never heard such infamy. Break out the cannon and tell the men to stand by to engage the enemy.”

Hardy: “The men are a bit worried about shooting at anyone, Admiral.”

Nelson: “What? This is mutiny!”

Hardy: “It’s not that, sir. It’s just that they’re afraid of being charged with murder if they actually kill anyone. There are a couple of legal-aid lawyers on board, watching everyone like hawks.”

Nelson: “Then how are we to sink the Frenchies and the Spanish?”

Hardy: “Actually, sir, we’re not.”

Nelson: “We’re not?”

Hardy: “No, sir. The French and the Spanish are our European partners now. According to the Common Fisheries Policy, we shouldn’t even be in this stretch of water. We could get hit with a claim for compensation.”

Nelson: “But you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil.”

Hardy: “I wouldn’t let the ship’s diversity coordinator hear you saying that sir. You’ll be up on disciplinary report.”

Nelson: “You must consider every man an enemy who speaks ill of your King.”

Hardy: “Not any more, sir. We must be inclusive in this multicultural age. Now put on your Kevlar vest; it’s the rules. It could save your life.”

Nelson: “Don’t tell me – health and safety again! Whatever happened to rum, sodomy and the lash?”

Hardy: “”As I explained, sir, rum is off the menu! And there’s a ban on corporal punishment.”

Nelson: “What about sodomy?”

Hardy: “I believe that is now legal, sir.”

Nelson: “In that case.. kiss me, Hardy.”

open_your_heart_09January’s Challenge runs into February too…

Barbara Franken… Inspiring New Energy Consciosness…

IAM a Visionary… I have a grand dream…

images-71In each New Year I normally feel an uplifting of energies as the old busy energies of the old year subside and give way to the spacious, fresh and new energies of a New Year… but this year I feel only a slight lifting of energies… I feel more space but the pace continues to feel fast and urgent… like never before…

I feel the drive to be the visionary that IAM, trusting my grand dream, for myself and the Earth, to continue to come closer into my physical reality… here and now… close and vibrant for ALL to physically see…  ‘People loving and gentle with each other… Cooperating with each other, in both living and working conditions… Everyone creating and manifesting their hearts desire, instantaneously… Both unity and individual uniqueness is honoured… The whole world is at peace and new wonderful creations are coming into being… Everyone feels magical and feels fulfilled’…

I have set my priorities for 2014, my first book is nearing the end… my crystal circle here on the Earth, on Mazarron Country Club is near completion, our Peace Mural needs only the final touches… and most important of all… Tom and I have decided to venture out into the ‘more’ vibrant southern coast of Spain to create a new space for our ourselves… A new home in which to create, to paint, to write, to explore, to play golf and most of all to allow new potentials to take physical form…  So this Spring will see a completion of many things that I have enjoyed creating here in the quiet, in the depths of myself, these last 7 years…. It is time to move on to something new, some place to match our higher vibrancy.. I believe a  couple of butterflies are taking yet another flight… somewhere… over the rainbow…

To close this post I would like to share with you some beautiful words on KNOWINGNESS that I have distilled from an Adamas Channel from the Crimson Circle

ShaumbraInspired_TM

Accepting your own knowingness…
Take a deep breath… relax into yourself… Breathe nice and calmly…  Why have you pretended up until now not to know?  Go NOW into your knowingness… and breath into it…  You know it’s not found in any one place in your body, or in the body of anyone else… How could anyone else tell you what only you can know for yourself…

Long ago you planted your knowingness within the human form coming to the Earth… until the time was right for you to retrieve it…  The mind will tell you where it is and the heart will say it’s here…  NOW is the time to receive it from your self… It can’t be figured out, measured, dissected or destroyed… It’s innate and has always been there…

Breathe into your knowingness without thinking about it…  Blow the layers of dust and debris away, allow your body consciousness to receive it… Allow your knowingness to expand to all parts of you… Feel the warmth of it as you feel its presence… Feel its gentleness and compassion and know it is time to stop the search… It is here and it is yours… declare it and feel the doubts go away…

Allow the knowingness to help you understand why you bring in your doubts and sink into the drama… and how to instantly dissolve them… without a fight or negotiation… by simply choosing to now…  Allow the knowingness to remind you that you don’t need power… there is no fight and nothing to battle… it’s only about declaring your IAM…

Take a breath of your knowingness, feel it fill you whole body and radiate out to all your aspects, warming the most coldest places of your memories…  It is time to remember your dream…  to listen to it and feel it…you know what it is..  Your energies await to come in and support the creation of your dream…

The dream is not just of the human or lifetimes you’ve had, but of the soul…  The soul, the human, the embodied master all dreaming together… dreaming in unity, in harmony, in balance… The dream of the soul, dancing with the dream of the human, dancing with the dream of the master… Take a deep breath…  and feel your dream…

The dream is like the name of your soul, it cannot be spoken because it is so holy…  It doesn’t need to be defined… just known to you now… and as you allow your knowingness and the essence of your dream to come together, it calls forth the energies, the crystalline energies to come to you… Attracting them from the unconditional true love of yourself… from your passion of life… to fulfill your dream…  abundance… wealth… health… joy… passion… harmony… peace…

You’ll ask yourself… AM I ready… AM I worthy… what do I have to do, what do I have to say, what ceremony needs to be done… None… None… None… (unless you want to)…  Just breathe and embrace your knowingness… Allow yourself to know and feel your dream… and give your permission for the energies to come in and fulfill your dream…

January Challenge… My Awakening Experience and Moving On…

images-68Happy Happy 2014 to ALL… May everyone find their magic this year and help light up the darkness in the world… IAM celebrating the New Year here in England… listening to a song from Gary Barlow… ‘Don’t forget where you come from’… what a wonderful thought to begin this New Year… and introduction to this January Challenge…… welcoming in awakening experience’s from people who remember where they come from…

There are still a few dates left to join in this challenge… sharing your own awakening experience… please let me know…  and to everyone who is participating… I thank you so much for sharing… Individually and together we are making such a difference in the world…

Please post your ‘awakening experience’ on your own blog on the scheduled date, using the title ‘January Challenge… My Awakening Experience and Moving On’… link to me somewhere in your blog and the person writing the next post that is filled in, in the schedule… and you can also copy/paste the schedule list at the bottom of your post….

So here goes… My Awakening Experience… Barbara Franken… Me, My Magnificent Self…

Unknown-5It wasn’t a conscious decision that I made… to close down when I was about 7 years old… but my soul thought it an appropriate time to dive fully into my human experience…  I didn’t go quietly though, I cried every night for months, worrying everyone, as they didn’t understand what was happening and couldn’t comfort me… to tell me that everything was going to be OK… that I would awaken at an appropriate time if I chose too… My eyesight had began to deteriorate… I wasn’t able to see the black board at school so well anymore and had to wear horrible glasses… I also experienced many sore throats, eventually having to leave my home and go into hospital to have my tonsils out… I remember these traumatic experiences so well… Physically, Mentally and Emotionally I was a mess and not understanding the significance, took them all into my human experience… I felt lost, abandoned and unimportant… I cried a lot to get attention from others… I became a rebellious teenager and acted without care and attention for myself… as I had now forgotten who I truly was and where I had come from…

Around the age of seventeen, I began to feel this drive to leave my home country, to leave all that I knew and go out and explore unknown territories, meet new people, experience different truths and to find out who I truly was… I arranged to work in a hotel in Switzerland from the age of 18… I packed all my possessions, said goodbye to my family and never looked back…

For a few years I moved around Europe, working and having fun with a variety of different people, eventually making my home in Amsterdam, Holland with my first husband, pets and working a nine to five job…  I experienced a secure married life for about 4 years, but it wasn’t for me… I craved freedom to explore more of life… I eventually found the courage to leave… (it was 1987/8, the Harmonic Convergence… a time that the Earth and her inhabitants were beginning to naturally awaken, remembering where they had come from)… I wanted my ex-husband to be able to find someone who would give him a family he wanted and for me to continue my search for a freedom that I so longed for…

open_your_heart_09Looking back this was my soul’s way of calling me to attention… it was time to start opening my eyes to who I truly was…  I had a good job at an International Company in Holland and enjoyed my working experience and living on my own… One of my neighbours was an older lady who took me under her wing and introduced me to the writings of Kristnamurti… They were very deep books, which inspired me to ponder my thoughts…

At my work a handsome gentleman had caught my eye, he had recently joined the company, working in the finance department… It didn’t take me too long to pluck up the courage to ask him if he wanted to take Ballroom and Latin dancing lessons with me… Tom said YES and we have never looked back on our relationship… this year, 2014 we are celebrating 25 years together… 

Funnily enough Tom had collected many books of Kristnamurti too, which we enjoyed reading together, having many in-depth discussions that went on into the early mornings, bonding us together deeply… in ways I find hard to explain…  During one of our first family birthday party’s I was given an English book… Out On A Limb by Shirley Maclaine… It literally blew my mind and world wide open and inspired me to explore deeper into myself and life… And as the saying goes, when the student is ready the teacher will appear…Peter, my spiritual teacher appeared and for the next 5 years I chose for him to help me explore the depths of myself… After all Kristnamurti had said… ‘You are the World’…

I learned how to feel with my heart, feeling into each moment what I liked and what was good for me… instead of relying on what other people thought was good for me and expected of me… My self-awareness expanded, I got to know myself, you could say I fell in love with myself, I trusted myself and I became important, extraordinary and magnificent…

A new world was opening up for me and slowly but surely my old life, feelings, beliefs, relationships with family and friends fell away and I began to see things in a whole different light… I was not only feeling and sensing… what was important for me to experience, but I understood that I was part of something much bigger… I understood that there was truly no separation from what was out there and within me… My outer world mirrored my inner world and this helped me make sense of myself… I became deeply excited about exploring a new found multi-dimensional world that I was a part of… I was so much more than my physical human body and mind… I had a soul and spiritual essence that was part of me and connected to ALL… Source… Love… IAM everything and my unique magnificent self… IAM YOU and YOU ARE ME… We are all just separate in  different bodies for a while enjoying unique and individual human experiences…

I began to enjoy walking in nature, feeling and seeing the beauty around me… I connected with it all… I began to paint and write… I changed my work and found different friends with whom I could discuss my new found awareness… I could no longer just talk about the weather, the mundane reality and drama that continued to happen in peoples life’s… I became less materialistic and more focused on expanding into a world beyond our known physical reality… to SOURCE itself… I no longer had a need to search for more… as it was ALL right here in the now moment and within me…  I was consciously breathing, living and allowing life to unfold… even the unpleasant things in life… were all part and parcel of my experience… showing me, teaching me to accept ALL… and allowing all the traumatised, unloved and frightened parts of me to come back to me and integrate as one…

We arranged for Tom to retire early and we made our move to live in Southern Spain… We wanted to leave the dreary weather and hectic life and settle into a quieter and warmer climate to experience peace, fun and find out what we were truly passionate about and enjoyed… The quietness enabled me to go deeper into myself and allowed me to connect with 9 New Elemental Beings… Aspects of myself that have shared wise insights over the last 7 years, to help me integrate, expand my body consciousness (Mind, Body and Spirit) and bring in New Potential…

It wasn’t all quietness though… in fact we both experienced a lot of distraction and confrontation with people and situations around us… giving us another opportunity to face our fears and traumas that have been waiting patiently for release…  It was time for everything that no longer served me to come up, be noticed, accepted and released… I was again moving into a new space that I liked and resonated with and had friends and family around me that I could relax and enjoy fun and laughter with…

My body consciousness was coming into balance as I allowed myself to live my passion and create my dream… exploring new horizons in the New Energy Consciousness… I feel lighter and wiser now, loving and trusting myself completely… Of course I still get distracted and doubts come up, but no longer so loud or big… I take myself out into nature and breathe… consciously breathing, looking at my doubts… knowing now that they are all parts of myself, travelling home, to be welcomed, loved and to be one with ALL of me…

images-63

I live gracefully and at ease with my magnificent self… and as my doubts calm… I know that my trust in ALL THAT IAM encourages the natural process of manifesting and creating my life… my passion and hearts desire welcome in new potential that allows the appropriate energy to come in and give birth to my grandest dream for myself and mankind…

Yes I have a grand dream… One heart at a time, humanity is naturally awakening to the truth of their own magnificence… remembering they come from and are a source of love… I stand among you all, here and now, firmly balanced… radiating my love and joy into the world… knowing that everything is perfectly well…
