We are the Power of These Times ~ Awaken!

Our awakening happens in cycles & rhythms, ebbs & flows, valleys & peaks, stages & phases, continuous next levels & layers.

The beginning stages/phases often find us desiring greater health, balance, wellness. Exercise, diet, hatha yoga, are some of the new choices we seek out. We feel better, brighter, and with this comes the initial peeking into our emotional/mental landscape, addressing destructive habits, behaviors, re-evaluating people, places, things, in our lives.

At some point if we are to continue on, we often feel called to go deeper. We are ready for the stillness of meditation. We’re called to study, gain spiritual knowledge, explore the more subtle expressions of our reality through understanding/experiences of the energy, in all it’s forms. Our inner lives remain fairly stable & secure, ego has been identified, yet we too are identified with our egoic-personality.

Ahh … but then, again if Soul realizes we are ready to go deeper still, the stages & phases, expand & deepen into the cycles/rhythms, ebbs/flows, valleys/peaks. This is when we often run into a dark night of the soul. Stability & security begins to be a bit more precarious. Soul has a way of ushering us, initiating us into depths of our being, we didn’t know existed, as long as we lived top-side of life, the surface of life, the surface of ourselves.

This phase is not often the spiritual journey we consciously choose, as in the first, feel-good stages of awakening. This is the inner journey, where the rubber meets the road, where all that we’ve known to be true crumbles into ecstatic piles of rubble. Yes, it’s true ecstasy & spiritual death, can live side by side.

Here we dive deep into our own darkness … and don’t be fooled to believe you are free of the cracks & crevices, within your psyche & heart, your cells & tissues, your brain & bones. We live within the confines of our Shadow, until enough Light rays dissolve it’s hold. For when we truly awaken into the deeper levels, we find eons of unresolved lies, pain, distortions, that require space to survive.

Yet, Soul has other plans than only the surface, top-side existence. The valleys grow deep & long as we purge all that has been carried for eons. The identity of personality must be transformed, before we KNOW who we are.

We will rise up to the peak once again, and yes, we will dive down again as well. True awakening isn’t for the faint of heart. It isn’t warm & fuzzy, happy go lucky, when the deep work is being done. We will feel alone & isolated, as the un-initiated can’t comprehend the demolition at hand. And there will be few words that can accurately illustrate the experience happening within.

There are the initial cycles, where the depths & ebbs will be greater than the times of peaks & flows. Hold yourself close & dear, loves. It’s all temporary.

True awakening in the later phase, is for the warrior aspects within us. Here we grow stronger, more vital, learning how face the fire of illusions. And rejoice in the burning.

But not to fret! For there is a purpose to this fire & it’s raging does indeed become warm embers. Whether you wish to call the Awakening that we are undergoing, simply that of Awakening… or Ascension… or the embodiment of Shakti-Kundalini … or … ??? Language matters not. There are no words for the direct experience of dying to who & what we thought we were, & being reborn into the Remembering of the Truth WE ARE.

Dear Ones … those of you in the fire, keep burning!
Keep surrendering! What awaits you, is a deeper Wisdom, beyond what any books, scriptures, intellectual knowledge can convey. For this is the path of Know Thy Self. This is the path of Divine Embodiment.

Once we travel the inner cycles/rhythms, we are freed up of the chains that once held us captive, without our even knowing we were prisoners. We come out the other side, with a lightness of being, the realization that Love abounds & is unceasingly present. The density of all that was, has now enabled more levity, spaciousness, faith & trust, Light.

Concepts of our purity, goodness & love, transform into KNOWING & Being, the Divine Humans that we are that have awoken those divine qualities within.

The Freedom & Joy of traversing the depths, facing the fires, allowing the crumbling of all we’ve held true, is that we have access then to next leveling, upon next leveling, into heights that we never expected of knew existed.

This is the power of our time. We were made for this time. 
If you are in the stage of crumbling, break down, Sweetness!
You were made for this process! 
This process awaits us all. This is the transformational, evolutionary event of our being. 
And it is a never ending journey.

Rejoice! As the true beauty that you ARE awaits you!

Awakening from the Dream ~ An Inner Journey Memoir

I’m thrilled to announce that the story of those first wondrous years of my Kundalini Awakening,  is now closer to becoming a reality!

Though it’s been sitting gathering dust for some time, the time has come to move it out into the light. As I work with clients & students, it has become clear how much they & others will be able to benefit from the path I’ve walked. We all are traveling in the same direction, and we share many of the same hurdles along the awakening journey.

I’m self-publishing though the HayHouse publishing’s subsidiary of Balboa Press. While much of the project is underway, I am in need of raising the necessary funds for the professional editing, through Balboa.

My Story as Service to Others … A Book is Born
There were 2 impulses behind writing this book.
The first, as I mentioned above, was simply my way of processing and integrating myself into a life that couldn’t be put into any box.

The second, which grew with a propelling force in all areas of my life, was to be of service.  To help others along their inner journey, that is the spiritual awakening path, became a deep call.  Because in many ways I had traversed a decade of unknowns without much in the flesh assistance or guidance, I felt called to create more ease, grace, and safety for others.

As some of you may know, this process can be daunting & expansive, mind-blowing & heart-opening, physically challenging & blissfully freeing.

I witness this continually, as a healer & spiritual guide, which is a result of my path. While every person’s journey is unique, there are also similarities. Confusion & fears can run high, just as blissful breakthroughs can affirm soul’s propelling force onward . There is often isolation from family & loss of friends, as there is no easy way to relate these inner transformations via clear communication to those who have not yet had these experiences.

For me, reading any personal accounts written from the experiential point of view from fellow travelers, granted me much relief and peace. Though these memoirs were few and far between, I cherished those that I read, as they were like reflections in a mirror, that brought me sanity when I felt lost.

I received hope from their stories, that one day the rewards of profound, lasting connection to Self, all of Life, Spirit/Source/God ~ however each relates to the Ineffable, would land me firmly on my feet, with a lasting peace.  I wouldn’t say this is exactly what I’ve found, but I will say, I have landed with a deep sense of that connection I’d hoped for, and it continually transforms me, opening my heart & deepening my Soul.

Intention
This book speaks of my heart & commitment to the continued awakening of myself and others. My desire is that it serve as a lighthouse in the storm and a companion of kindred understanding & joy to those walking the path of Awakening. The path of returning Home to your own True Heart.

Please stay tuned as this blooming bursts forth!

Many Blessings & Much Love, 

Lotus
