Where are we all NOW… A Selection of True Awakening Experiences

It’s coming up to 2 years ago when my WordPress friends and myself published this beautiful Free E-Book sharing a selection of our True Awakening Experiences. IAM re-blogging it today because IAM sure there are people who haven’t read it and will certainly be inspired by it and there are the bloggers who wrote their story here and would love to re-read their unique story and see where they NOW find themselves.

Wouldn’t it be cool if we could all write a follow-up true story of Where we are all NOW.. on our unique journeys. I do hope you love my ‘crazy idea’. It could be our winter project and release our new stories in Part II February 2016… 2 years later. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Below is the post I wrote January 2014 as we published our Free E-Book.
Together with 33 magnificent bloggers here on WordPress we have created a Free E Book…  A Selection of True Awakening Experiences… that we have written in order to help put our own life’s journey into perspective and inspire us on and to inspire the many hearts of HumanKind to aspire to their own true and unique potential… to be the change they want to see in the world and help create a peaceful and loving world in which to live in harmony and cooperation with each other..

As an introduction to this inspiring collection of true stories I wrote the following…

2014 was approaching and I was inspired to ask my sacred friends to share an account of their life’s journey and in particular the moments of their awakening to who they truly were…  What followed is something I couldn’t of possibly imagined… An incredible avalanche of unique beingness… has gently flowed through me for the whole month of January and into the middle of February 2014…  As each new day arose and my friends posted their awakening journey, I felt my body consciousness (body, mind and spirit) expanding in knowingness, in love, in pain, in joy… Floating on a new high vibration and frequency, observing life… gaining new insights, perspectives that, to put it bluntly… exploded my whole being…

I came into a new space of acceptance, reverence and trust… Feeling the IAM speaking so individually and uniquely through each journey, yet resonating at the core of ALL was a new sense of passion and understanding… I felt a subtle shift of consciousness exposing ‘The Truth’… or is it that we are creating a ‘New Truth’… setting new standards to live as DivineHumanBeings here on Earth…

If we ALLOW ourself to be the new standards, living our passion and creating our hearts desire… to go where no one has ever been before… as an embodied ascended DivineHumanBeing… Can we bring into being… new potential… to be able to create together a peaceful and harmonious world here on Mother Earth?

I thank ALL my friends here on WordPress from the bottom of my heart and soul for making this a wonderful and enlightening experience…

To conclude this introduction, I have chosen some beautiful unique words that both resonated with me when reading and was inspired to write after each awakening experience was told…

Without the discovery of love, you can only talk small, judge and compare another…
It is your choice to journey into the depths of the divine…
Being the light, no darkness can penetrate you…
IAM GOD too… You are GOD too…
No more sleeping, but living your truth…
I feel, I exist…
I choose the games I play in life’s theatre…
Awakening to the feeling of pure joy and oneness of life that IAM connected to…
To experience life in the fullest sense is to trust self…
Living in Freedom Now…
Love of Self is at the core of ALL…
Feeling the humor, the sadness, the pain and the joy…
I feel the wisdom, acceptance and love that I gain through my experience…
IAM coming into my own crystalline structure of awakened light…
I have my own answers and signs that lead to the truth, my truth…
IAM a vital piece of a giant jigsaw…
Being, Allowing, Loving and Living in balance with ALL…
I recall pure bliss when I was in love, such an expansion of the heart with nature, and the universe. That exist within me and should be accessible at anytime, but is it?
To be awake, to be conscious, to be aware of what I truly feel…
Awakening to what I feel to be true…
Awakening to get myself untangled from the matrix web of ‘this is how it should be’ to a feeling of freedom…
Beingness disappears when I allow doubt to creep in…
Allowing myself to expand consciousness and raise my vibration to be a great representative of IAM… LOVE…
The physical self shattered to feel the ooze and soothing force of an underlying calm beingness…
You can awaken in a quantum leap now… if you so choose…
Awakening is a natural cycle, similar to that of the butterfly…
Once you are awake you can allow self to ascend, to be enlightened and walk tall as an embodied master…
A healing journey is to love self…
Let’s not allow words to separate you and take away your beingness and peaceful existence…
Releasing all the walls of protection that you have built up from such a young age…
Heal at your own pace, but persevere…
Awakening is simply waking up…
You are taking quantum leaps of faith to a new way of living in freedom, in love…
From blindly following old conditioned patterns of others to following how you feel in each moment…
To sing out loud, IAM free… IAM love… la…la…la
Keep living until you feel alive…
Emerging from a state of deep sleep…
Allowing self to expand consciousness…
Consciously living in the world being YOU…
Aligning our mind, heart and soul and opening self to love…

Celebrating Week Two at MeMyMagnificentSelf…

Note to Self, easy. life is, celebration, flow, good, right on time. Barbara Franken-2

Another week has flown by and my inspiration and fingers are flowing… creating many posts for my 30 day challenge with Sarah and Kevin... IAM half way there… YES… so please bear with me… but do you know… so much great information is flowing and helping me organise myself. So here’s to celebrating my Week Two posts.

Here are the links to check last weeks posts, just in case you missed them.

How to recognise NOT being in the flow…
Our Human self loves to be in control, but when this happens we stop the flow of creation… Here I share how I recognised something wasn’t right.

The Wellness Benefit of taking quiet Me-Time… A Silent Walk in Nature
In our busy and hectic life it is crucial that we find time to breathe, relax and rebalance our Body, Mind and Spirit (Body Consciousness) Here I share a Silent Walk in Nature with you all.

Loving Self First is…
Sharing with you an important part of Magdalena’s message to me… she was the first Elemental Being I perceived on my Journey of Freedom many years ago.

The Wellness Benefit of taking quiet Me-Time… Intuitive Painting
Not only is Intuitive Painting an ideal passive activity to relax our mind and body but it is an opportunity to bring us into contact with our Divine  expression.  Here I describe what you need and how you proceed to paint intuitively yourself at home or with a group of friends.

Intuitive Painting… Celebrating You…
I share a deeper insight into my SoulArt… Celebrating YOU… and explain how we tap into Consciousness and are able to receive not only our own answers and expression of our Divine self but of the expression of other people too.

What is Consciousness… and how is it Changing…
Sharing will you my perception of Consciousness, how it is Changing and how I want to create awareness for our expanding consciousness to children and adults locally and worldwide online through creative activities.

What is Awakening, Integration and Enlightenment…
I use the words, Awakening, Integration and Enlightenment a lot in my writings and forth coming book Your Magnificent Self… A Journey to Freedom.  They mean different things to different people, but I wanted to explain what they mean to me.

Last weeks call to Action was as follows…
The other day I published my Image quote Loving Self First is… with a Call to Action that I have copied again here. One of my missions in life is to Create Awareness for Loving Yourself First… especially with our children… which I will be bringing the idea to them during my creative visits in local schools here in the province of Andalusia, Spain.

I would like to ask you, my friends, to write a small piece about your own experience loving yourself first and similar to our selection of True Awakening Experiences, creating a Free E Book to share and inspire others. You can post your quote on an image, quote, short story on your own blog in the Summer Months and mention this Call to Action… Lets call it… Why it’s important to Love Yourself First. I will collect a thread of all our posts, so you will be getting a lot of ping backs too… Thank you and here’s to us all being the change we want to see in the world.

Does anyone want to take up this challenge… or shall I allow it to pass by?

Todays Call to Action…
Please help me Create Awareness and pin my image and quote at the top of the page… Thank You.

IAM also celebrating my son’s birthday today… he is many miles away so I made him this card with the help of this awesome website… www.canva.com…. I highly recommend it to my friends.

What superb examples of being real, being amongst the people and enjoying a great celebration together… the Royal Family of Holland coming out into the streets year after year to celebrate with all the people the Kings/Queens birthday. Ever since I arrived in Holland in the early 80’s, I have enjoyed going out in the streets to celebrate this day with thousands of happy, smiley, laughing, dancing, singing people. Over the years Holland has made such a big impression on me, it is a country that is open, direct, tolerant, easy going and friendly. The uniqueness and magnificence of each person stands central in life… in this way there is less violence, addiction, teenage pregnancy and illness than most other western countries. So THANKYOU Holland for your wonderful presence in my life.  Here in Benalmadena, Spain we celebrate our life each day… but on Kings day we went all out.

Unknown-2

A few days later we are celebrating another birthday… The birth of a new princess of Britain. Welcome dear one… I hope you are ready for your great task of helping to bring Great Britain back to a vibrant nation and more importantly bringing a smile and happiness back to its people. The following question comes to mind… Is it the people that make a country great or is it the country that makes a person great? I know my answer… whats yours?  It is a most important answer… because knowing the answer not only has an impact on each person’s life but will make the difference of how the voting goes in this weeks election in Britain.

…And when IAM not celebrating, I spend a little serious time, feeling into life and what’s happening around me… I feel into the energy, by simply expanding my consciousness. This last week I have been overwhelmed by pain… not particularly my own, although the days leading up to todays full moon has again brought me more accepting, embracing, allowing, releasing, etc etc… but from people who are suffering the invisible pains and one in particular… Fibromyalgia.

I brought my mum over to stay a month with me here in Spain, for her to get away from the cold British weather and her four walls. She has suffered for a few years with fibromyalgia… so I understand a bit about it from her point of few, because people can’t see it and that more than anything infuriates her. My friend Megan at my chronic life journey is writing an illustrated book about the dis-ease to bring more awareness into people’s life. My mum has been pampered for a month, eaten my great healthy food of low carbs and high good fat and has had her negative look on life frowned upon. Arriving back home she feels like she has been given a new lease of life. I’ve told her it’s important to keep up eating good foods and focusing on the good things in life… rather than eating sugar candies and cookies and focusing on how bad she is feeling… no matter the pain she feels.

Now going back to my feeling into pain and in particular Fibromyalgia... here is what information flowed through me. Now… please remember this is only my perspective and truth which your mind will probably think is crazy… but you can allow your heart to resonate with any truth there may be.

Question:
Why are more and more people feeling the intensity of pain in their physical bodies now?

Barbara’s answer:
Humankind is coming to the end of a long and hard Human experience . A new energy is now in play (that we have created) to help us open, awaken and expand our consciousness… awareness… perspective. To allow each heart to feel into the truth of our past experience and choose now to live a happy, healthy and abundant life in cooperation with each other.

We can only experience this happy ending, if we choose for it in the present moment. But because we are so stuck in the mind and our long Human experience of conflict, resistance, chaos, duality, patterns, control and pain we deny ourself this freedom.

Our ancestors and ourselves have lived many lives… living the different roles of poorman, richman, gentleman, lady, sickman, goddess, king, vampire, murderer, victim. Numerous roles for us to experience all the Earthy sensations. This long experience is now coming to its end, as we have all called it forth, in answer to our cries for no more suffering, control, greed and violence. Therefore, everything we have ever experienced is coming up and out into the open… even the darkness, our fears and pains that have been hidden away… for recognition before its ultimate release.

The pain and fear that we are experiencing now is not ours… it is the collection of all the roles we’re played… coming to its head and coming out through us…as the last in line. 

The pain is calling our attention… bringing us to a place within ourself and within the moment, where we can be aware that we are so much more than our Human self and experience. For us to recognise the pain for what it is…  old energy that no longer serves us, coming up to be accepted and embraced before its release. We can allow simply through our awareness… our consciousness the pain and fear to take a step back from its long service and be released.

Now it is time to celebrate again… Today is another full moon… helping us further release more of all our yesterdays… all the pain and fear… and prepare ourselves for Humankinds next step… creating and celebrating how we truly desire to live in each moment… Are you ready to celebrate?

Love to all and be brave, because the energy is harsh… just breathe the conscious breath… simply… nothing more to do but be aware and allow the change to naturally happen.

Your Magnificent Self... A Journey to FreedomMy book that IAM self-publishing is taking a little longer than expected to publish… Your Magnificent Self… A Journey to Freedom. It is dedicated to YOU, to inspire hearts to open and expand consciousness for each person to discover their own truth… Pain as I talk about above is one of our body’s ways to inspire us to look deeper into the core of ourself and discover our truth.

IAM paying forward in my own way to Humankind and giving away FREE copies of my E-Book for a while… . If you would like to receive a free copy once it is published, please send me an email to barbara@memymagnificentself.com and I’ll add you to my list…

Now and again I read medical/scientific reports that literally open my eyes wide in disbelief, even in shock as the truth resonates with my heart and my own truth.  One such report I read about a year ago (concerned more and more people being put on statins for high cholesterol) and has stayed with me, but obviously didn’t impress me enough to act… until I read a similar report about a month ago about the same subject that rang bells.  I tore the page out of the magazine and gave it to my husband Tom to read and I began to think about writing a blog post about it…

But life went on and I didn’t feel I knew what exactly to write… until 2 weeks ago Tom went into the doctors surgery to check his blood/urine etc. as he felt something was out of balance.  A week later the results were available… his blood sugar was dangerously high and his kidney function had decreased… the doctors sent us to the emergency hospital for control.

A lovely young Spanish lady doctor took care of him, ordered another set of tests, gave him ½ a bag of saline solution with insulin and waited to see his body’s reaction.  It brought his blood sugar right down and as everything else was ok, she sent us home (after 8 hours) telling him to continue taking his new diabetic medication and return to his doctor after 10 days to see how it was going.

Tom and I were both in a bit of a shock wondering how we had let it come this far.  As usual I went on the internet and read everything I could on diabetes.  I came across a lot of ‘old truths’, from doctors and institutions who continue to work in the old way of treating the symptoms instead of using their natural sense of healing and looking for the root cause.  I also came across many reports from scientists and doctors based on new research into the many chronic sicknesses that most of the population are now falling into, in young and older age… diabetes, cancer, alzhiemers, ms, arthritis, parkinsons + many more that have been put into the auto-immune disease category… (here is a shocking list of 150 diseases Autoimmune and Autoimmune…).  They all have inflammation as the root cause.

Now going back to the interesting report I read on high cholesterol, as I had become concerned that statins were being handed out to everyone like lollipops… and I wanted Tom to ask his doctor to begin decreasing his medication of them together with all the other pills he had been prescribed to prevent another heart attack.

The report is here for you to enjoy reading… http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-mercola/the-cholesterol-myth-that_b_676817.html  It basically tells the story of a group of people connected to the pharmaceutical industry, that a few years ago, decided together to reduce the ‘risk level’ of cholesterol in the body that was good for you.  Yet, actual new research was coming out that explained that when a part of our body becomes inflamed, cholesterol was the one coming into the area to bandage and heal the inflammation.  The more inflamed our body becomes, the more cholesterol can be found in that area, making cholesterol not the bad guy, but the underlying inflammation.  Reducing our cholesterol only lessens our ability to heal ourself… and ultimately… we need to realise and heal the root cause of inflammation of our body.

I’ve listed here below some of the links I found interesting to read from doctors, scientists and the public that resonated with MY TRUTH…

Cutting a long story short…

During the last 10 – 15 years, (having personal experience with Tom having  2 heart attacks) we have all been told to eat a high carb and low fat diet.  Like so many others I ditched the butter, cut out all the fat on meat and stocked up on margarine, grains, beans, rice, pasta and potatoes, low fat cheese, milk, yogurt etc…. and of course portions of fruit and veg.  The food industry has gone overboard in providing low /0- fat products, juices, soda’s, cereals, breads, crackers, crisps, biscuits and cakes that all contain, high salt, high sugar/or substitute sugar which is actually worse and ‘bad oils’ (high frutose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils).  The fast food chains, processed foods in supermarkets and chain restaurants also use highly processed hydrogenated oils.   So where does that leave us now… with a slow burning, inflamed population being diagnosed with all sort of diseases.  

My initial shock is over and I changed our diet in a matter of hours… butter and lard is back in the fridge (to use minimally) lots of good oil sources, mushrooms, salad and fresh veg or stir fry’s are the daily food with just enough protein in the form of ‘small farm’ eggs, chicken, steak, bacon, cheese, fish to be of use in the body before it turns into glucose. Gone are the carbs and the sugar.  So low carb/high good fat and do you know what… we are both no longer hungry in-between 4 small meals a day, we feel more active and IAM losing my love handles and toms stomach is shrinking well.  Because our carbs are low, the body is changing back to its natural way of burning… burning fat (ketones) instead of glucose (which relies on insulin)… Just like how we used to burn food before agriculture and processing foods were introduced because of our need to feed quantity to the thousands.

I’ve heard people argue that this diet is too expensive, but I have to respond by saying I don’t need to eat quantity anymore.  My body is much more satisfied with small potions of good natural food and drink (a glass of good red).  So my small quality actually balances  the expense.

Humankind is again going through a big shift… of consciousness… and with our new level of awareness we are (our body, mind and spirit) vibrating on a higher and lighter level.  Our bodies are becoming more and more ‘energy self-sufficient’ (beginning with our breath) and we find we don’t need to eat as much anymore and can choose to eat to enjoy and thrive, rather than survive.

Unknown I have summarised some interesting information here below in the hope that it resonates with your own truth and instigates you to find out your own answers as to what is good for your own body and mind.  We must remember that we are each unique and have different needs depending upon our interests and activities and only we can know how to remain healthy, feel well and thrive in our older years, simply by listening to our own body’s wisdom instead of that of society.

Carbohydrates are complex sugars and together with the single sugars that are readily available in abundance all around us, are actually causing our body to get an overload of glucose.  Excess glucose is stored as fat in the body, normally around the belly/hips.  As most carbohydrates and sugars leave us constantly hungry we regularly indulge in snacking which causes us to become fatter and our blood sugar (glucose) level to yo-yo until… the pancreas that produces insulin and normally sends it to transfer the glucose to appropriate cells that need energy, loses the signal or connection that says ‘how much/less insulin to produce.  It is called insulin resistance (the links above explain it well). The bottom line is… insulin doesn’t do its work anymore of lowing the blood sugar level, healthy cells get deprived of energy and all other organs begin to fail.  Blood sugar level higher than 110 is put into a category of Diabetes II, where Tom now is and most of the population are on the way to getting there.

If we are not paying enough attention to our body, listening to it’s wisdom as to what is good and not so good for it, we are probably on the way to being diagnosed with diabetes or most certainly preparing ourself for another ‘dis-ease of the body’… The new research is telling us that our bodies are becoming more and more inflamed. (See link above for Autoimmune and Autoimmune showing 150 diseases of the body that are now connected to root cause inflammation). Not with the normal inflammation when we have a physical trauma or infection and our immune system responds to the area healing it. (we can look at sore throats, hives, rashes, sprained ankle), but inflammation ‘overload’, because our immune system has began attacking itself through its confusion and unreliable connection and response to our internal signals.  This has come about through our poor diet that is high in sugar, carbohydrate, trans, saturated fat, lack of exercise, constant stress, hidden viruses/bacteria/parasites/yeasts, allegens from food and the environment and last but not least from being too thin or too fat.

When we are under constant stress, worrying about everything, fearing about the future, not feeling safe and spiralling towards depression, our immune system receives constant signals ‘of being in distress’ and sends armies and armies of white blood cells from the bone marrow to the ‘danger’ areas.  Cortisol, the hormone produced in the adrenals from cholesterol,  join the area under distress as it’s main function is to balance  (depending on fight or flight mode) our stress, inflammation and metabolism levels in order to regulate energy production and tell the liver to produce more/less glucose for energy in times of ‘preparing to fight the good fight’.

So you can imagine now we have an excess of glucose being produced… coming from our diet and from our stress level which eventually confuses our internal signals with the constant pressure and overload of hormones like cortisol (that inhibit enzymes like insulin from storing the glucose as fat) and instead, we force the glucose to remain in the area and cause inflammation overload.  A perfect recipe for malfunction of the blood and one by one our organs begin to fail and eventually shut down.

A blood test can test for C-reactive Protein which measures the amount of inflammation you have in the body.

IMG_2118

It was the inflammation that came in response to Toms high glucose (from his sugar craving which he ate to ease his ongoing distress with certain personal matters, making his belly bigger) and eventually caused his healthy cells to become resistant to insulin, raising his blood sugar and affecting the function of his kidneys.

Both my and Tom’s awareness has expanded with this recent new experience and we are now choosing to listen more to our body and enjoy a new life style that we see immediately improving our body and mind.  No more sugar or stress but living with ease and grace and reversing the dis-function to well-functioning of the body.

IAM looking at inviting my WordPress friends and friends outside,to create together another ‘Free E Book’ that contains true stories of the awaking physical body and mind and the changes it now calls for…  The title could be… The awakening physical body and mind and its needs now.   We could each write something about our body/mind experience and important new research that is coming out that resonates with us.  To begin In January, giving us time to research and look at our story.

What do you think?  I’ll begin the month off on Monday 5th January 2015 with my own experience… please let me know here in the comments and I’ll start a date schedule…  and thanks for joining me in creating more and more awareness in the world…

I’ve been having a time of my life in a hot and humid Ft Lauderdale, spending lots of time with Alexander my adorable grandson.  We have been very creative together, creating a giant heart space for Alexander to hang pictures of his loved ones… mum, dad, sister, aunty, uncle, grandma’s and grandad… and his dreams and wishes… He loves to be a police officer and work with firemen.  He created a picture of his new home and boat he wants in his life.  Alexander loves to play with trucks, building bricks and trains… so grandma helped him create a magnificent railway track, a space for him to play with his trains, tracks and bridges.  Last but not least we have found a wooden treasure chest to store his favourite things… this we will be painting in the next few days before we return home to Spain.

IMG_2751

During this visit grandma arranged for a nanny and cleaner to come and help in the home  when everyone else is at work.  When the time was just perfect Beth (nanny) and Alisa (cleaner) came into our life.  (I’ve been trying to find help for sometime, but obviously it was too soon and someone wasn’t convinced it was necessary)  Alexander’s new home will also appear for the perfect price at the most perfect time.  We all have the patience and trust in the timing and the most perfect new home to be available for us all.

IMG_2759

I have so enjoyed observing Alexander living in the present moment, truly indulging and enjoying himself.  There is no yesterday and tomorrow is unimportant.  NOW is the time to create and play, learn the ABC & 123, have swimming lessons and LATER (an extension of the present moment is a great time for ice-cream).  We have enjoyed visiting the park, young art museum, toys r us and the beach… to collect trash… it is after all what police officer’s must do when they need to collect fingerprints.

Sometimes when grandma tried to control Alexander, he reacted quite boldly… reminding me to interact with him and everyone around in a more compassionate and independant way.  I took the hint and have been looking at my need to control? Why do I do this?  Why can I not just trust that everyone else knows what’s right for them and just continue enjoying my life?

Control is an old way that I and most of humankind gain power, through pushing and forcing things to happen according to our own perception… which is actually very limited and an unloving way of behaving, as we take creation or a new way of doing/being away from another.  Being in control makes us feel great and important in the presence of others, but belittles another.  Humankind has programmed the mind to survive, no matter what, which has in turn shut down the spontaneous and new ways to experience life… until we become aware of this habitual behaviour and choose to create our life from a balanced heart and mind with consideration for ourself, another and most of all for CHANGE and CREATION.

If it’s one thing I have learned during my life is that I really like to FEEL independent and create my life how I desire it to be… to feel free in everything IAM.  This cannot be achieved when a person continuously trys to mould another into a shape that fits only our own need to nurture our magnificent self.

What is good for me must be good for everyone else and it was my responsibility to nurture Alexander’s sense of his magnificent and creative self.  So when I slipped back into ‘control mode’…  I took some deep conscious breaths, embraced my old need to control others and situations… it had served me well…  but now I was AWAKE and knew there was a better way for myself and others to live in balance and harmony with each other.  I allowed my need to control to transmute into compassion and freedom for myself.  Afterall I was an example of living in FREEDOM, full of light (enlightenment) and enjoying each moment.

The more I allowed myself to live in a space of peace and freedom, IAM connected with the part of me that has always been there, enjoying the human experience and waiting patiently for Barbara’s attention.  For me to be fully aware of the integration that is naturally happening to humankind now.  The integration of my soul (my divine essence or light body & mind) and physical being.  My divine light body & mind absorbing my physical body & mind and birthing my divinehumanself.

My Soul is in ‘soul charge’ of the integration, all my human self has to do is be aware and allow it all to happen… Allow myself to be completely free of the limited mind and old and unloving ways of being and be the creator and enlightened divine being I truly am. 

What is Enlightenment?
The human mind will never understand enlightenment because it is limited, never satisfied and always wants more.  Enlightenment for me is to FEEL and CONNECT with my deep desire for freedom, the pure awareness of my sovereignty and allow myself to express my true voice, my magnificent self here in this reality.  It’s never been done before…  IAM a new standard… Yes IAM allowing myself to be FREE and ENLIGHTENED.  Are you?

We can be aware of and allow our enlightenment… when we awaken from the 3D dense and limited reality we live in now and realise that there is more to ourself than meets the eye… To read some amazing true awakening experiences you can download the free e-book I made together with my wordpress friends… Enjoy…

Summer Solstice… IAM thankful for the LIGHT…

barbara&jon

Today, 21 June is the summer solstice and I awaken to a world of light and am thankful…
Today is a day of balance and I consciously choose to breathe this in…
IAM the LIGHT and the BALANCE…

Today I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony…
I’d like to hold it in my arms and keep it company…
I’d like to see the world for once all standing hand in hand…
And here them echo through the hills for peace though out the land…
That’s the song I sing… Let the world sing to…
A song of peace that echoes on and never goes away…
A song of peace that echoes on and n-e-v-e-r  g-o-e-s  a-w-a-y…

What are you conscious of today and how are you going to celebrate it? 
Can you celebrate each day like this one?

Enjoy the day… enjoy yourself…

Now IAM aware… IAM awake… IAM enlightened… IAM magnificent…
and very THANKFUL… Are you?

I AM THE AWAKENER!

Through the cold darkness

I have waited for the sun to come up once again

on my human brothers and sisters.

It is past time.

Each of you holds secrets locked and coded

within your consciousness and your body—

closed and locked for your own good.

When darkness befell humanity,

much of the power was removed,

the keys guarded closely.

The keys are where you never look;

Inside yourself.

My name is ASHTATARA.

It means “mother of the world.”

I am a goddess and a human,

one of a race that remembers that you are gods and goddesses too.

Once the doors begin to open, the growth moves very quickly.

Once the doors are open there is no closing them.

ARE YOU READY?

The activation sequence is given in silence

at a level of consciousness that is barely awake in you.

I will move now into an initiation of silence.

I will speak again when it is done . . .

[Silence for about fifteen minutes]

. . .create the possibility of a much bigger you and much more whole oneness. . .

Receive the love from this field in a way that

transforms everything you have been until now—

a love far beyond the emotional love;

a love that is the breath of God.

Receive now, deeply into your newly awakened cells of light.

Be sanctified Beloved ones.

Be sanctified permanently now.

You now carry codes of awakening.

You do not need me anymore.

I leave you now.

2014-2015 Lunar Eclipse Cycle… A Time to be Truly Balanced…

Unknown-1For a few years now we are observing the world around us literary ‘heating up’ and expanding, as high intensity solar activity and photon energy (the latter being a magnetic flow of light on the galactic plane, along the Milky Way where there is a great concentration of stars that give birth to ‘photon light particles’) influences the magnetics and core make-up of Mother Earth and all of Humanity.

images-13

It is a natural galactic cycle bringing in new energies to expand and transform our old 3 Dimensional World of Duality, Fear, Limitation and Separation… to a Multi Dimensional World of Unity, Compassion, Cooperation and Authentic Power…

We observe our weather patterns changing, the uprising of people under dictatorship, the power and greed of governments no longer being tolerated, the foundations of our financial, economic, religious, spiritual and education systems wobbling, unbalanced relationships exploding and the limited and ego-minded physical body and mind becoming sick.

We are seeing and feeling all the past trauma, pain, wounding, untruths, secrets and darkness that have been passed down our ancestral lineage, being penetrated by intense electromagnetic light that is naturally releasing all the cellular memories that have been stored on Earth, within each person and all our creations. Our divine consciousness that we have totally ignored for many lifetimes is being woken up.  The ancestral lineage ends with us and we now have a choice whether or not to allow the release of all the cultural and family patterns and beliefs of fear, conflict and darkness and come to a new understanding that our *temporary pains we are experiencing are part of this natural cycle and our transformation.

*temporary pains… We feel in some parts of our physical body and mind, both our own and our ancestral trauma, pain, wounds, untruths and darkness being released from our cellular memory.  We can consciously breathe in and out of this physical area and allow the stuck energy to move out of our body and into a neutral state… pure new potential for us to play and create with.  To remain ignorant and resist this transformation will ensure further suffering until the death of our physical body and mind.

images-8

We have the opportunity to choose to open and expand our body, heart and mind, to resonate with what is happening and allow ourself to create a balanced space of love, peace and calmness around us.  A space in which we can consciously breathe in the flow of new energies that are here to support us in the integration and crystallisation of our divine soul, human body and mind and release everything that no longer serves us.   We can allow ourself as DivineHumanBeing, that we truly are, to ascend and walk consciously here on earth, steering ourself through the chaos (that we understand to be the natural restructure of Mother Earth and Humanity) and enjoy creating in the now moment… Creating together with fellow sacred hearts a new peaceful and harmonious world in which to thrive and bring in new potential to serve our hearts desire…

images-11

Today Monday 14th April 2014 is the eve of another natural cycle, 4 consecutive full lunar eclipses with the last one taking place on 28th Sept 2015…

images-12

During this time we have the extra influence of the full moon as she represents the flowing feminine, the waters, the emotions, the east, the negative, the darkness, the mystery. She, the full moon will be helping us all to fully open up and face our woes and fears.  It is therefore so important to understand what is happening, not to be afraid, but to embrace everything, all our broken and hurt wounds of the past, to love them unconditionally from a balanced space of being and allow everything that no longer serves us to be free.  It is all going to be OK… humanity is moving on… we are going to be living in each moment, experiencing new potential and have no need to go back and compare our past or project ourself in a limited and probable future anymore.

images-6

Divine Consciousness is now awakening and wants each one of us to claim it as our own, to allow the integration of the DivineHumanBeing that will walk as an embodied ascended master here on Earth.  It’s never been done before… we are the new standards… Lets go for a new experience…

IAM wide awake now… and allowing my enlightenment to be…

iamfreedom

IAM wide awake…
Aware of the integration of my body, mind & spirit…
Feeling the great love affair…
The graceful dance between my divineness & humanness…
Choosing to go beyond all that is known…
Allowing the birth of my crystalline divinehumanbeingness…
IAM creative, expressive & explorative…
IAM freedom itself…

More and more I find myself taking a conscious breath…
Expanding my body consciousness…
Reaching beyond all my senses and the life I know so well…
Going beyond the feeling of a caged animal, pacing up and down…
Waiting to hear what I can best do to serve the day…
IAM tired of listening to the conflict, pain and desperation…
Seeing the carelessness and irresponsibility…
I cannot help others, I can only help myself…

I chose to be the change I so passionately want to see…
A world of harmony, love and laughter…
I chose to wake up from a long human experience…
Bringing all of myself back together, back home…
The darkness and the lightness…
Going beyond my karma and destiny…
Allowing my true essence to play out my hearts desire…
 IAM wide awake now and allowing my enlightenment to be...

25 years of LOVE and CANCUN… Mexico… Here we are again…

IMG_2118

It felt as if Tom and I had stepped into a time warp… back to the early 90’s…

A wonderful breeze of hot mexican air… friendly smiling deep tanned ‘small folk’… palm trees swaying in a beautiful blue sky… stretches of ultra white glistening sand and turquoise seas… ocean waves lapping on the land, a heavenly feeling of Gaia’s gentle caress that touches the depth of your heart and soul that is connected to ALL… laughter and screams of joy from children and young adults as they jump the waves, splash in the pool and dance to the deep music vibrations in the local night clubs… lying on the beach soaking up the sun, drifting off to a place of enchantment and silence… resting the body and mind of the busyness of ‘normal’ life and allowing one’s spirit to come into the foreground and ignite inspiration and passion with a feeling of peace swaying in the background…

IMG_2085

“What was it that brought us here year after year for 25 years… to enjoy this small piece of the world”… Tom asked…

IMG_2112

This time warp that we had both slipped back into… so easily… connected us to the deep feeling, the joy and passion of life… that had, IAM SURE… spurred us on to settle in Mazarron Country Club 7 years ago… another unspoilt, tranquil and peaceful environment where we allowed ourself’s to connect deeply with ALL OF OURSELF… body, mind and spirit… we had learned to be at peace, to refuel, recharge and experience the nothingness in life… wherever we were…

IMG_2107

But today… 7 years later… following the yearning of our hearts… we are back for a well deserved ‘Time Out’ before we move to our new home in Benalmadena, Costa del Sol…  There are more tall buildings, more people, traffic, shops, restaurants and hotels… but nothing could cover up the peaceful hum, the natural colours and shapes of Gaia’s presence here… Long ago we had both connected with the natural vibration of LOVE that is here… that brought us to the core of ourself… and will always remain special to us… Over the last 25 years we’ve shared this paradise with our family and friends… We joined together and committed ourself’s to each other, for better and worse here on our beach… on our rock…

IMG_2104

Our Rock… We will respect and honour each other for eternity…

IMG_2101

Our old apartment… Carisa Y Palma…

IMG_2117We feel truly home… a place to celebrate our love for ourself and each other… 25 years.. quite a milestone… Enjoy the photos… and here’s to new inspiration for the creation of another post from CANCUN, Mexico… Hasta Luego Amigo/a’s…

IMG_2089

IMG_2091

A quote that is engraved on a building here on the beach that we have always resonated with…  ‘Life is lost in dreaming… Dreaming is lost in Becoming…’  So let us live mindfully in each moment of our life and allow ourself to be our grandest heart and soul’s dream ever…

A Selection of True Awakening Experiences…

A Selection of True Awakening Experiences…
Art by Kimberly Harding…

Together with 33 magnificent bloggers here on WordPress we have created a Free E Book…  A Selection of True Awakening Experiences… that we have written in order to help put our own life’s journey into perspective and inspire us on and to inspire the many hearts of HumanKind to aspire to their own true and unique potential… to be the change they want to see in the world and help create a peaceful and loving world in which to live in harmony and cooperation with each other..

As an introduction to this inspiring collection of true stories I wrote the following…

2014 was approaching and I was inspired to ask my sacred friends to share an account of their life’s journey and in particular the moments of their awakening to who they truly were…  What followed is something I couldn’t of possibly imagined… An incredible avalanche of unique beingness… has gently flowed through me for the whole month of January and into the middle of February 2014…  As each new day arose and my friends posted their awakening journey, I felt my body consciousness (body, mind and spirit) expanding in knowingness, in love, in pain, in joy… Floating on a new high vibration and frequency, observing life… gaining new insights, perspectives that, to put it bluntly… exploded my whole being…

I came into a new space of acceptance, reverence and trust… Feeling the IAM speaking so individually and uniquely through each journey, yet resonating at the core of ALL was a new sense of passion and understanding… I felt a subtle shift of consciousness exposing ‘The Truth’… or is it that we are creating a ‘New Truth’… setting new standards to live as DivineHumanBeings here on Earth…

If we ALLOW ourself to be the new standards, living our passion and creating our hearts desire… to go where no one has ever been before… as an embodied ascended DivineHumanBeing… Can we bring into being… new potential… to be able to create together a peaceful and harmonious world here on Mother Earth?

I thank ALL my friends here on WordPress from the bottom of my heart and soul for making this a wonderful and enlightening experience…

To conclude this introduction, I have chosen some beautiful unique words that both resonated with me when reading and was inspired to write after each awakening experience was told…

Without the discovery of love, you can only talk small, judge and compare another…
It is your choice to journey into the depths of the divine…
Being the light, no darkness can penetrate you…
IAM GOD too… You are GOD too…
No more sleeping, but living your truth…
I feel, I exist…
I choose the games I play in life’s theatre…
Awakening to the feeling of pure joy and oneness of life that IAM connected to…
To experience life in the fullest sense is to trust self…
Living in Freedom Now…
Love of Self is at the core of ALL…
Feeling the humor, the sadness, the pain and the joy…
I feel the wisdom, acceptance and love that I gain through my experience…
IAM coming into my own crystalline structure of awakened light…
I have my own answers and signs that lead to the truth, my truth…
IAM a vital piece of a giant jigsaw…
Being, Allowing, Loving and Living in balance with ALL…
I recall pure bliss when I was in love, such an expansion of the heart with nature, and the universe. That exist within me and should be accessible at anytime, but is it?
To be awake, to be conscious, to be aware of what I truly feel…
Awakening to what I feel to be true…
Awakening to get myself untangled from the matrix web of ‘this is how it should be’ to a feeling of freedom…
Beingness disappears when I allow doubt to creep in…
Allowing myself to expand consciousness and raise my vibration to be a great representative of IAM… LOVE…
The physical self shattered to feel the ooze and soothing force of an underlying calm beingness…
You can awaken in a quantum leap now… if you so choose…
Awakening is a natural cycle, similar to that of the butterfly…
Once you are awake you can allow self to ascend, to be enlightened and walk tall as an embodied master…
A healing journey is to love self…
Let’s not allow words to separate you and take away your beingness and peaceful existence…
Releasing all the walls of protection that you have built up from such a young age…
Heal at your own pace, but persevere…
Awakening is simply waking up…
You are taking quantum leaps of faith to a new way of living in freedom, in love…
From blindly following old conditioned patterns of others to following how you feel in each moment…
To sing out loud, IAM free… IAM love… la…la…la
Keep living until you feel alive…
Emerging from a state of deep sleep…
Allowing self to expand consciousness…
Consciously living in the world being YOU…
Aligning our mind, heart and soul and opening self to love…
