I’ve migrated my blog to my new wordpress website.

As of November 1st I’ve migrated my blog to my new wordpress website… It’s all a bit new to me so IAM not sure how it’s going to work… I hope you can all find me at http://memymagnificentself.com/category/blog/

I’ll keep this blog going for a while so you can comment here if you are have any trouble connecting with me.

Today IAM also celebrating the official start of my book launch party week, I hope you will all help me spread my vision… of us all creating together as Master Creators, a peaceful and loving world, right here on the physical plane.

Until soon again, Love Barbara x

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…

For my WordPress Friends who created this book with me…
You can download the pdf file of ‘The Selection of Awakening Experiences’ from my side bar on my home page… which I’ll keep there for a while…  (IAM new at all this and not at all handy on the technical side… so IAM learning….) Any help is much appreciated…

Your Magnificent Self... A Journey to Freedom

Call for Action
IAM still looking for 5 more friends to review my book or interview me regarding my book… This will help me create a buzz around the first 2 weeks of my launch… Thanks so much. Barbara x

Save HarsH ReaLiTy!!

IAM asking my friends here on WordPress to help save my fellow blogger and friend Jason from Harsh Reality… I believe there has been a misunderstanding and we have petitioned the powers of WordPress to look into the matter. Jason has helped me in my blogging life and I don’t like what is happening… Thanks for spreading the word… and posting your comments on http://lindaghill.com/2015/01/14/save-harsh-reality/ Barbara x

No one likes spam. In internet terms (as opposed to the stuff you find on the grocery store shelf) it’s the bane of our existence. Its sole purpose is to get our attention and once it does, it either begs us to buy something or gives us something we would never pay for – something like a virus.

Then there is the exception to the rule. In fact, there is only one exception that I’ve found in over a decade of browsing the web. It may have seemed like a “spam follow” at the start, but when I followed the cookie-crumb trail that led me back to its source, it ended up benefiting me beyond my wildest dreams: it was HarsH ReaLiTy.

Jason, also known as Opinionated Man, has a huge (over 50,000 blog, twitter, and Facebook combined) following on his blog, HarsH ReaLiTy. His passion for connecting with other…

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…

I feel and see MAGIC everywhere…

images-54

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

I never fit in… now I know why… I have a dream…

I_have_a_dream_by_lilly9380

Art by LilianAnonymous

IAM one of many who have a dream… a grand dream… just like Martin Luther King as he stated in his freedom speech in 1963, John Lennon’s song Imagine and Abba’s song I have a dream… My WordPress friends are all part of this dream, which I vividly dreamed one night, not so long ago… but first lets recap on some great words…

Let Freedom ring… Let us sing we are free at last… MLK
Imagine all the people… Living for today… Living life in peace… Sharing all the world… JL
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale… You can take the future even if you fail… Abba

Enjoying my food, wine and home…

A fish salsa delight

I love cooking, simple and tasteful dishes… Tonight’s delicious meal was made according to my friend Sindy’s recipe and blog post… http://bluebutterfliesandme.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/water-water-everywhere
‘fish salsa tortillas’… except I added nectarines and fresh prawns I had lying around waiting to be included in this scrumptious meal… So thank you Sindy… It was delicious… (I just missed the margarita’s… will ask you for the recipe soon…) Continue reading

Thankyou Martha…

A Thank You to Martha...

Thankyou…
Martha and Everyone who appreciates ME…
IAM happy to be part of your blogging friendship…
Together we support one another…
Please understand that I choose not to partake in
giving and receiving awards… Thank You…
IAM Barbara x

My humanness hoped that one day one of my fellow bloggers would nominate me for an award too…  That would mean that someone, other than myself found the time to read my writing…  enjoy what they read and enjoyed being part of my life…

And… Martha came along and nominated me for my FIRST award… woow… and I feel so, so honoured…

But… after surfing WordPress, when I first began blogging and saw the TIME it must take up… away from ME… receiving and giving awards to fellow bloggers… I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t take TIME away, from my precious ‘ME TIME’…

…Being a bit of a rebel, IAM also not so good at following rules…

and last but by far not the least… I really hope that sooner rather than later, everyone will LOVE THEIR MAGNIFICENT SELF so much, that they give an award to themself… (not that I don’t love the initiative of flowing awards around WordPress to expand readership and friendship)… but it is important that we love ourself first and this is a great way to show this…

I therefore choose not to participate in receiving and giving awards… knowing my blogging friends will understand… and I will continue to be a loyal friend, reading with interest about our unique life experiences and teachings…

IAM honoured and THANKYOU Martha and Everyone who appreciates me…
The heart-work above is for YOU… from ME with gratitude and honour…
