Spiritual Awakening SymptomsWhat are the most common and significant signs and symptoms of spiritual awakening? This post is an update of an article I’ve written back in April of 2012 titled, “Spiritual Awakening Symptoms – Essential Signs of Spiritual Awakening.” I’m reviving and updating it because five years later, I can add even more clarity to a topic that still has a lot of confusion around it.

For example, a current google search of spiritual awakening symptoms includes the following “symptoms:”

  1. An increased interest in metaphysical and/or religious topics, including in developing a mind-body-spirit connection
  2. Unusual sensations in your crown, headaches, ringing in your ears, vertigo
  3. Increased chills or shivers not due to illness
  4. Taking things less seriously
  5. Increased empathy and compassion for yourself and others
  6. Seeing the numbers 11:11 regularly
  7. Experiencing regular synchronicities, “coincidences,” intuition and messages from the “Universe”
  8. A desire to reconnect with yourself and become more authentic; to finally be yourself
  9. Becoming aware of your old negative habits, and feeling you want to finally change your life
  10. Deep yearning for meaning in your life
  11. Increased creativity and inspiration
  12. More awareness about food and nutrition
  13. Change in sleep patterns; inability to sleep
  14. Becoming less worried, judgmental and confrontational (and sometimes, more worried)
  15. Feelings of being connected to everything and everyone; feelings of bliss

It’s generally understood that these signs and symptoms of spiritual awakening will intensify and accelerate as humanity awakens from it millenia-long sleep, and that humanity will continue to be thrown temporarily out of balance. (Why? To help us awaken. Awaken to what? To the truth.)

Back in 2012, James Tyberonn stated that the spiritual awakening symptoms predicted to increase included, “mood swings, dizziness, insomnia, anxiety, lethargy, apathy and fatigue.” Other spiritual teachers had their own lists, which included headaches and other body aches and pains, emotional rollercoaster rides, angry outbursts, sweating, changes in energy levels, sleep patterns, jobs, and relationships, and gaining or losing weight.

I think you’d agree that this is a huge hodgepodge of “symptoms,” and most of these don’t sound like a whole lot of fun to deal with, either. And it’s understandable that after reading these lists, someone new to the process of spiritual awakening can be left feeling a bit confused.

Back in 2012, James Tyberonn channeled,

“We have told you that the world remakes itself now and whether or not humanity in micro or macro is supportive of expansive change or against it, whether it is understood by mankind en masse or not, it is truly a moot point as the inertia of transition speeds into reality more quickly today than it did yesterday on the linear and Omni-Earth….Each advancing energy will require physical, emotional and mental adjustment to the higher frequencies downloaded.”—Archangel Metatron channeled through James Tyberonn.

What does the above channeling mean? In a nutshell, and on a macro level, it means humanity is adjusting to discovering the truth of its millenia-long journey (implying that as a society, we’ve been living a bunch of lies for a long, long time). (But keep reading and don’t despair … because eventually you’ll discover that even the lies had a noble purpose.)

And on the micro level, it means that we as individuals will need to respond to and adjust to each event or challenge that comes up in our life. Despite the challenges sometimes showing up one right after the other, including sneaking suspicions of lies we’ve believed and have been living since we were children, we will need to make efforts to expand our awareness and respond to each challenge to the best of our ability.

Archangel Metatron encouraged,

“Do not despair, for the symptoms will pass quickly, and the benefits are a stronger ‘you’.”—Archangel Metatron channeled through James Tyberonn.

I agree that many of those symptoms will catalyze your personal growth. This is because when you’re experiencing unpleasant symptoms, you are more motivated to take action and to follow your inner guidance (which will help you discover the truth). However, the physical symptoms will not pass by quickly all on their own. You will need to be proactive about each of them.

Regarding physical symptoms, I’ve seen people on Facebook asking questions such as, Should I do something about this ache and that pain or are they symptoms of ascension and awakening?

When it comes to physical symptoms, you may find that your mysterious aches, pains and skin issues disappear when you eliminate certain foods from your diet. For example, a friend of mine noticed that she has increased stiffness in her body when she eats gluten. So now she avoids it and feels much better as a result. I totally get this, as this has happened to me, too. So I eliminated gluten from my diet about four years ago.

A colleague of mine named Shasta Tierra (an herbalist and licensed acupuncturist in San Jose, CA) has been advising her Natural Health Makeover Class participants to totally eliminate gluten, dairy and GMO foods from their diet, for about a month. Just to see what happens.

People who’ve taken this class have had pains in their arms, swelling in their feet, stiffness, skin irritations and back pains disappear within several days of following the healthy diet she recommends. One lady who couldn’t sit at work for more than 45 minutes without experiencing excruciating back pain found herself sitting all morning without having to get up and stretch. But when she slipped back to her normal diet, her back pain came back within a couple of days.

Please don’t ignore these so-called “awakening symptoms.” Be proactive, do some research, and follow your inner guidance.

Regarding the spiritual awakening process though, I like to refer to Father Charlie Moore’s definition of what happens when you begin to awaken, which he borrowed from the Gospel of Thomas:

“Those who seek will find, and that is a promise. Those who find, will find the truth in their own heart. And those who find that truth will be disturbed because of the conflict between what their heart tells them and what they are being told by others.

“Those who are disturbed will wonder and ponder, and at last they will choose the truth in their own heart. They will then become masters of themselves and become truly human, which is the best thing any human can be.”—from Synthesis Remembered: Awakening Original Innocence.

Anyway, I have my own list of what I understand to be essential and relevant signs and symptoms of spiritual awakening. The following is a list of nine “symptoms” I  experienced during my process of awakening:

  1. Painful life changes you can’t explain, or know how you’ll get through. (This helps motivate you to look deep within for the answers. Because that’s where you’ll find the guidance that will actually place you squarely on the path of your awakening.)
  2. Synchronicities that are meaningful to you. (These help point you in the right direction on your path or help spark a new insight.)
  3. Intense inner contemplation including questioning and/or reexamining of beliefs and events, especially at three or four in the morning. (This is often triggered by events you can’t explain using your current belief system or knowledge.)
  4. Receiving “secret messages” from people who may or may not be aware that they’re relaying special messages to you. (Because spirit works in interesting ways.)
  5. Having the same thing (especially something unusual) happen to you two or three times in a relatively short period of time, like 24 hours.  (This assures that you actually notice what your higher self wants you to notice.)
  6. Waking up in the middle of the night feeling intense confusion. (This means your beliefs and the foundation they are based on are being adjusted. Before you become clear and solid in your new awakened state, you’ll no doubt find yourself mucking through a period of deep confusion.)
  7. Intense, vivid dreams that seem to point you in a certain direction. (The further along in the process you are, the clearer your dreams will be and the more your dreams will help guide you in your daily life. The dreams will be in metaphor form, often in metaphors that make sense to you.)
  8. Favorable synchronicities that happen regularly. (You can expect these to occur after you regularly follow through with your inner guidance.)
  9. Finding yourself laughing more often. (Sometimes you’ll wake up in the middle of the night and in pops a new, freeing insight about one of your beliefs or an event from your past, and then you laugh your head off. Don’t worry about this behavior. It just shows that your higher self has a good sense of humor.)

Experiencing any (or all) of these symptoms means that you’re deep into your spiritual awakening process.

If you want to fast-track your awakening, though, because you’re tired of being in the dark, I’d recommend the book, The Spiritual Awakening Process: Coming Out of the Darkness and Into the Light. This book lays it all out, and is easy to understand, too.

Remember, your individual growth is super important right now. The symptoms you experience aren’t just signs or symptoms. They’re catalysts, designed to assist you in your spiritual growth.

My friend Joshua Tilghman writes about the hidden truths found in the Bible and Jesus’ life in his “Spirit of the Scripture–Uncovering the Hidden Meanings of the Bible” blog. About a week ago, a reader of Joshua’s blog commented that she found it interesting that the Hebrew names of both Jesus Christ and of Satan / Lucifer mean “Messiah,” according to a particular ancient Hebrew interpretation. I found this interesting.

I have also linked the two together, but for different reasons. Specifically, I understand Jesus Christ to be the physical incarnation two thousand years ago of the ancient soul / higher self of Archangel Lucifer. This idea isn’t something I have come across or read in some book or article somewhere (frankly, I haven’t seen the two connected this way anywhere), but it’s what I have pieced together when I was writing my first book, “What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening” (published January 2008, and based on some heart-rending personal experiences I’ve had and the insights resulting from those experiences). To this day, I still maintain these ideas.

I am not in any way a Bible scholar. My individual path has much more to do with the practical application of spiritual principles and wisdom, so I cannot back up my claims using Scripture. I have a basic, “Catholic” understanding of the Bible. However, I do understand that both Archangel Lucifer and Jesus Christ are “Bringers of the Light,” in fact the name Lucifer has been interpreted as, “bringer of the light.”

I also understand that Archangel Lucifer’s name was sacrificed on the “Cross of Duality,” the “ethereal” cross in the heavens related to the Precession of the Equinoxes, and it makes sense that Lucifer’s physical incarnation on Earth, Jesus Christ, would be sacrificed on the physical cross. (By the way, the Cross of Duality is the cross in the “heavens,” the cross in the Milky Way Galaxy that we have just intersected December 21, 2012).

Before the fall in consciousness, Archangel Lucifer agreed to “represent” everything that was not God, everything that was not Love–so that humanity could play the “game” of duality and grow spiritually as quickly as was possible, so that we could have the experiences we needed in order to grow the fastest spiritually and personally. He agreed to do this “as long as it took,” until the time that humanity ascended in consciousness and his name would again be cleared. Well, I’m writing this article to help clear his name.

Lucifer made all this possible, including humanity experiencing the gifts of duality that we have yet to discover, but that are “coming” soon. Jesus Christ his physical incarnation fulfilled it by showing his followers “The Way,” but back then Jesus’ messages were easily co-opted and deliberately misinterpreted by those in power. However, the time has come for real change to finally manifest. We have crossed the line where the internal compass of the planet points to the beginning of a Golden Age, and only a few vested interests–and simple inertia–are still maintaining the status quo.

So the one who made duality possible is now the “bringer of the light,” the one who shows “the way”–the way to ascension, “salvation,” your higher purpose–by showing you that the “Kingdom of God is within you.” By helping you connect with your higher self, your direct connection with the Divine / God so that your higher self drives and steers your life rather than your lower, “ego” self (that bought into all kinds of strange, false beliefs, and that’s sometimes referred to as “Satan”). Anyway, who else BUT Lucifer’s own could have fulfilled this extremely important task? Things HAVE to come full circle!

So what are you to do? What is your role? It’s simple. You are to connect with and integrate (merge) with your higher self so that your “lower nature” (physical self) “gets behind” the agenda / plan of your higher self. Exactly as Jesus had done in the Desert when he said “Get thee behind me, Satan.”

There are many good reasons to connect with your higher self. The top nine reasons (in no particular order of importance) are described in this blog post.

1. Your higher self (also known as your soul, your true self, your authentic self, your inner being, your bridge to the Divine) is your access point to your higher life purpose.

Everyone has a higher life purpose that we are to fulfill during this time of awakening and transformation. The way you access your higher purpose is by developing a deeper and clearer relationship with your higher self. The “map” or “blueprint” to your higher life purpose is within you.

2. Your higher self is the “place” from where you access (and activate) your intuition.

Nothing activates your intuition better than connecting with and paying attention to your higher self. Your intuition and inner knowing are important elements that help guide you on your daily path so that there’s a sense of greater cooperation in the Universe.

Want to gain confidence in your intuition? Cultivate a real relationship with your higher self. Want to activate your consciousness? Cultivate a relationship with your higher self. Want to see glimpses of your higher life purpose? Cultivate a relationship with your higher self. Want to gain confidence in yourself? … You get the picture.

3. Your higher self is your access point to your wisdom from all time.

Your soul is infinite–meaning it’s been around forever. You probably have had many, many lifetimes. You can gain access to that wisdom by reconnecting within and paying attention to that part of you.

4. Your higher self is the place from where you clear your karma and make sense of your life and your “Soul Contracts” with others.

By understanding your life and your soul agreements from the perspective of the higher self, you will heal and transform your life. You will then be truly, authentically grateful for having gone through your process (your life path and how it had helped you grow). Almost nothing feels better than gratitude when it’s authentic.

5. Your higher self is the place from where you restore inner balance, wholeness and peace.

Your soul is the place from where you restore right- and left-brain balance and wholeness (“lower level” human consciousness comes together with “higher level” or “divine” consciousness). After you integrate with your higher self, you will notice that the constant chattering in your head will diminish greatly (if not completely) and the battle going on in your mind will settle down.

6. Your higher self is your access point to your potential, your gifts and unique contribution that will be key to creating your own “Golden Age.”

The energy of your soul is the energy of your potential (your unique gifts and abilities).  Reconnecting within and following through with your inner guidance promptly and consistently is the best way to create a life that you’ll actually love to live.

7. Integrating with your higher self is how you will help create the Golden Age for all beings on the Earth.

Your Higher Self is connected to the larger Divine Plan. By fulfilling your role in the Divine Plan, you will help bring about the Golden Age for humanity.

8. Your higher self is your bridge to Interconnectedness and all its gifts.

When you follow through with your higher self’s guidance, you will benefit in the form of more flow in your life, favorable and sometimes amazing synchronicities, a sense of perfect timing, greater cooperation with the people in your life, as well as new insights. These are considered the gifts of Interconnectedness and following through. And when you benefit in some way, so will everyone and everything else around you–as everyone and everything is also connected to you through the Interconnectedness.

9. Your higher self is how you activate your Ascension.

There are many misconceptions about the ascension process. Ascension refers to the expansion of your consciousness (the raising of your consciousness, the Great Shift in your consciousness) that occurs when you begin to see the world as if you had the perspective of God. (After all, your higher self is a fragment of God.) When you begin to see the world from such a high perspective, your behaviors and habits will change, even those habits you’ve had a hard time changing up until this point.

These are the top 9 reasons why it is worth your while to connect and integrate with your higher self.

I received some brilliant comments on the Ascension Process and the practice of teachers charging for various spiritual services (personal growth services) in my last blog post titled, Paying For Ascension – The Truth about The Ascension Process. One particularly brilliant comment (with which I wholeheartedly agree) was from a reader named Patricia. Patricia commented,

“People continue to miss the BIG message here.  This topic really has nothing to do with people charging a lot of money for a spiritual service—even if it is related to  Ascension.

This dynamic simply provides a sought after supply matched with a demand created by those who are still seeking this help from outside themselves…They are a perfect match!   These are people who are unaware that it can only be found from within them….this is confusion that is caused by a false and limiting belief that was designed and set into play a long time ago.  It is one of many aspects to the belief that we are separate from Source.

Nothing could be farther from the Truth.

I would say to anyone who is not resonating with this sort of scenario of “helpless person seeks, asks, and pays money for help from another”…

You are obviously ready to begin your inner journey of finding and developing a relationship with your Soul and Higher Self!  So what are you waiting for?   Run do not walk!

Rather than spending anymore of your precious time distracted by what is unimportant…instead, be grateful for your new found awareness and realization that it has served you well by leading you to this point of readiness!  Now is the time for you to begin!  There is no going back!

Until you are actively connected and communicating with Your True Self…24/7, you will remain a player in this game and it is clear now that it does not work very well for you anymore.  So time to do something different that does work.

The only way out of this is to “GO WITHIN”!  For within you, the True Self, is the only place you will find the Truth and or FREE help for ascension or any other topic you seek.  That is just the way it is!

The Choice is yours to make!”–Patricia

So … when it comes to “going within,” how do you actually “run, not walk?”

My answer: You begin today (not tomorrow, not the next day) to cultivate a clearer, deeper relationship with your higher self. You do not have to do anything special about your past; you can begin where you are right now. So what you do (in the evening before you go to sleep and in the morning, if possible) is connect within with a meditation that works like a “shot in the arm” for connecting with your higher self and then, you begin to pay attention to your “sacred space.”

One way to “pay attention” is to “check in” to your sacred space several times a day, to anticipate the receiving of subtle guidance and inner promptings.  Because we are so used to ignoring or dismissing our inner guidance and the subtle feelings associated with our sacred space, it will take a bit of effort and re-learning to get into the habit of paying attention to that part of ourselves.

You then make note of what you feel or any guidance you receive and you “align with” and / or follow through with whatever guidance you receive as promptly and as consistently as possible. When you do this, what happens is that you get on the “upward spiral” that is Ascension. Another way to say this is: you spiral upwards when you listen to the spirit within you. Because if you ignore your higher self / sacred space, how can you ever expect to be happy or fulfilled?

Usually, your higher self will have you take baby steps at first, until you gain more confidence in yourself and in the process. For example, you may get a hunch to call a friend at a certain time. If you follow through and if a “synchronicity” occurs, you will have greater confidence to follow through with your inner guidance the next time.

An example: About five years ago, a friend of mine had gone on a road trip from the San Jose area of California to Alaska for several weeks. He stayed mostly at campgrounds in his van and spent some time in an area of Canada that was sparsely populated. About two weeks into his trip, I got a nudge to call him on his cell phone, to ask him how his trip was going.

He answered his cell phone and asked me whether I had tried to call him earlier.

“No, this is the first time that I tried to call you since you left for your trip,” I said.

“Well, that’s interesting. This is the first time in about a week that I’m able to get cell phone service. I have to tell you that you have good timing,” he said. At the moment I called, he was staying at a campsite in Northern Canada that actually had cell phone reception!

So then what you do is you allow your higher self to play a bigger and bigger role in your life until your higher self gets at least as much attention as the physical world around you. This is an important milestone because it’s the “critical mass point” when your higher self really gets activated in your life. This is when you can expect to experience the “gifts” of following through: favorable synchronicities happen regularly, you have perfect timing, there’s much more flow in your life, the questions you ask the “Universe” often get answered within 24 hours, and you experience a greater sense of fulfillment and cooperation in life.

As you continue this process over time, your higher self will continue to inform and transform your life, including your outer world and experiences, so that you fulfill your potential and higher purpose. In summary, connecting and integrating with your higher self = the Ascension Process = the upwards spiral.

I received an email from a reader asking me why some Ascension teachers charge an arm and a leg to help people in their Ascension Process. The following is her email, with the names of the teachers left out, slightly edited for clarity:

“How can anyone charge 2000 dollars for a soul reading (a soul origin and soul history reading)? I asked why it was so much and how can people afford that in this economy and was told that the soul reading is a unique and complex gift and that not all people on a spiritual path struggle financially.  He also stated that in order for people to ascend they need to heal their bodies and have a karmic clearing.

So if you don’t spend all this money does it mean that you don’t ascend because you are not receiving the karmic cleansing–which apparently can only be performed through them? Is it possible they are leading followers in a wrong way?  I also don’t understand why anyone would ever ask those whom they are trying to help to pay that kind of money.  This means that only a selected few will ascend and the rest of us will be stuck because we simply cannot afford to go their required steps.  How can this be when it seems for the collective whole we should be helped with learning to remember ourselves?  I feel like it’s a phony and greedy thing to do, very similar to the Catholic Church, in my opinion.  Any insight?”–A reader

My response:  First of all, I don’t doubt that by employing the help of an intuitive or a spiritual counselor, you will receive insights that will forward your spiritual growth. However, in this case these teachers have the Ascension Process backwards. It’s not that you have to first heal your body and clear your karma so that you are “allowed” or deemed worthy to ascend, rather, it’s the other way around. When you get on the path of Ascension (read: when you ascend your consciousness, when you tap into higher consciousness and then follow through with actions aligned to this higher consciousness), you will heal your body and clear your karma as part of the process.

Healing Your Body

When you raise your awareness of nutrition and exercise, resolve the emotional and spiritual blocks to health that are in your way, and follow through with an attitude and actions aligned with your new awareness, you will heal your body.

No one can heal your body for you, not any spiritual counselor, not even the best doctors. Only you can heal your body by resolving the emotional issues in you and making more informed and healthier lifestyle choices. The process of healing your body is your responsibility (and privilege).

Part of healing your body involves listening to your inner guidance about what’s going on in your body and in your psyche. By connecting deeply within and following through with your inner guidance you will gain new insights about yourself that will override the false beliefs you have about yourself and this is what will release your emotional and spiritual blocks. This inner process will help heal your physical body.

I happen to assist an acupuncturist with classes that teach people what to eat and what not to eat as well as the importance of dealing with unresolved emotions and I have seen amazing healing happening in people who are following the program. (I have shared some of these amazing results in a couple blog posts.)

Clearing Your Karma

I have stated before that only you can clear your own karma, by understanding your life from a higher perspective (read: through your higher self), because the higher perspective happens to be both liberating and freeing. As you connect within and tap into your higher consciousness, you will come to realize that regardless of the life path you’ve taken, it fit into the Divine Plan and benefited the Whole. (In truth, your higher self planned your life for your long term happiness and fulfillment and was not too concerned with what you needed to experience in order to get there. We are currently in the process of “getting there,” which some people call the Ascension process.)

When you connect with the part of you known as your higher self (your connection with Source) and follow through with your inner guidance promptly and consistently, you will experience many amazing synchronicities, “aha” moments and insights that, put together over time, will help you to attain a bigger picture understanding of the process of life and of your journey. (Each insight is like a piece of a puzzle that your mind will fit together over time, which will eventually lead you to a higher level understanding of your life journey.) This deep understanding of your life (that you’re responsible for) is what will give you peace and clear your karma.

Who knows the truth of your life (and your past lives) better than your higher self? Besides, no one can convince you of the truth of your experiences just by telling you it is so. On the contrary, you will convince yourself–when you have profound epiphanies and realizations about yourself, supported by amazing synchronicities and feedback from the Universe. A spiritual counselor can help you begin the Ascension process, but you will still need to take the steps of following through with your inner guidance. No one can waive that for you and besides, your higher self would not cheat you out of this incredible, wonderful and liberating experience, particularly now!

Ascension = Connecting and Integrating With Your Higher Self

As I have said many times before, the Ascension process begins when you connect with your higher self and follow through with your inner guidance (the integration part of the process). To discover the how-to of this process in detail, including meditations, practical daily steps to take and how to reduce your fear around the process, please click on the link below. On that page you can access the eBook Activating 2012: A practical guide for navigating 2012 with confidence and clarity.

I am convinced that the fastest way to spiritual growth (and personal success) that’s available at this moment in time is to connect with the part of you known as your higher self and to follow through with your higher self’s guidance, consistently. I also assert that at this moment on planet Earth, it shouldn’t take longer than a few weeks to receive some positive feedback from the Universe so that you’re clear that you’re on the right path.

Why only aciclovir online? a few weeks? Why two to four weeks? Let me illustrate with an allegory.

I know an acupuncturist who teaches people how to lose weight and detox the body. I’ve conducted some research on nutrition for her and assisted with two series of 10 week classes we’ve put together this year.

We had the pleasure of having 8 participants in one class and about 20 in another and what we’ve found is this: those who stuck with the program we proposed (that eliminated / limited certain foods, not calories) not only lost weight within the first 2-3 weeks, a majority also lost pains in their bodies they’ve had for months, in some cases for years. (We have to admit we really didn’t expect that result.)

For example, one woman was used to getting up and stretching every 45 minutes because her back pain would get too intense to continue sitting. About two and a half weeks into the program, she found herself sitting at her job all morning, into lunchtime, before she realized that she had forgotten to stretch! (However, when she went on vacation and returned to her previous food habits, her back pain came back quickly, in about three days.)

The point being made here is this: if you follow some nutrition program, or if you follow the steps for connecting and integrating with your higher self (which is the fastest way to spiritual growth and your success), you should expect some positive results within a month, or less. Then you will know you’re on the right path; you have the results to prove it!

Of course it’s not all that easy to change your habits and follow the steps for connecting with your higher self consistently, just as it’s not that easy to give up bread or wheat products, for example. But if you’re sick of the way things are and you yearn for your life to be better and you make that last ditch effort, you will succeed.

Frankly, I am understating the results, as some people who followed the connecting and integrating process the Universe had “shown me” have communicated that they have received amazing feedback within the first week of following the program, in some cases just by reading about it. (But … I am conservative in some ways, an engineer-type, and I tend to understate results.)

A good friend of mine has recently found herself needing to make some changes in her life, one of which is to move out of her current apartment. About two weeks ago, she was about to sign a one-year lease for another apartment at her current complex when her inner guidance “told” her to go check out another apartment complex nearby. What she found was that the amenities at the new apartment complex not only excelled, her rent was $200 less a month for basically the same square footage.

I have another amazing example of an acquaintance who was blown away by several results he manifested within a month of just reading my story. (A vacation home in the Sierra foothills and everything he needed to furnish it–all at bargain prices.) If you’re new to this blog, you may want to read about G.’s story in an earlier post titled, An Inner Guidance Example: A Friend Follows Through With His Inner Guidance. (I have to admit I really didn’t expect that result.)

What kinds of results can you expect from following through with your higher self’s guidance? Anything from favorable synchronicities, new insights, “signs” from the universe that help show you the way (particularly helpful when you’re too tense to hear your inner guidance), a sense of greater connection and cooperation in life, more flow in your life, and more.

As you connect within, follow through with your higher self’s guidance and manifest the kinds of results listed above, your confidence and trust in your higher self will naturally grow. And it will continue to  grow until you begin to trust it more than anything or anyone outside of yourself. (Which is what it will take to “graduate” from this realm, by the way.)

Can you see that having this kind of trust in your higher self will help you make huge strides in your spiritual growth, personal development, accomplishments and inner confidence?

Drake Kent (“spokesperson” for the “positive military”) shared some thoughts on the Galactic Federation of Light and their role in the planet’s ascension process via a post on Facebook. For those not on Facebook, I’m sharing what he wrote in this blog post, including my thoughts on the topic. Furthermore, I believe his messages contain “secret” information that can be read between the lines. Drake wrote,

“It has come to my attention that people closely associated with Galactic Federation of Light, are taking adverse stands in their posts. Those involved might want to take note that the info I have put out IS from sources I am familiar with, personally. Over years of contacts, I have found which is and is not to be trusted. Thus, I also ‘temper’ the outed info according to its impact and importance. I was hoping to avoid doing the laundry in a public manner, BUT, those at Galactic Federation of Light leave me no choice.

In our distant past, several things have taken place. One of those was a newly formed federation. This was the first time an organization of this size and complexity was brought into existence. This means that all the interactions between all these differing groups had to be worked out. In addition, the very size was extraordinary and created or caused a bureaucracy that was time consuming and slow to act. The Galactic Federation of Light knew of the ‘bad guys’ infiltrating our planet and could not act quickly enough to prevent it. Further, the ‘quarantine’ was not tightened correctly to offer a full or true quarantine. Therefore, The Galactic Federation of Light is one of the causes of our present situation/problem. ALL involved are attempting to rectify or fix all the things that happened because of the above. I thank all those involved in this effort, including The Galactic Federation of Light.

I am, and have been aware of the presence of our Pleiadian assistants for many years. Like it or not they are and have been here trying to help for thousands of years. The society is a sort of military organizational type. Very organized with a distinctive ‘order’ or command type structure. None of the ‘star’ people are conquering types anymore, as this behavior is not acceptable. This does not mean that all accept humans very readily. Some are only tolerant of our existence. I had hoped to leave this area of discussion out of the things I have been talking about. However, just as The Creator has stated, everyone needs to work together in order that mankind can elevate itself. I know that as this is accomplished, man will be seen as much more ‘fitting’ to join with our much more advanced brothers and sisters.

The missions are well defined. Man is to clean his own ‘nest’ as much as he can. AFTER/during this, then we will be reintroduced and reunited with our star relations.  I offer that We The People have the first mission…the clean up. Therefore, ALL of us here will need to concentrate on our ‘human’ condition.  Man has made a lot of very serious messes. Even though we are all human, we have terrible problems accepting each other…race, creed, beliefs, and social differences.    As we become free, the responsibilities of that freedom, have to be a part of a new way of being, in all ways.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have enough to do just taking care of our own problems. Advice is welcome, new ideas, and most of all, letting go of all the ‘hate’ and artificial disagreements we have made for our own shortcomings…

The new order is one of peace…nothing more, nothing less. I suggest we all get busy with our betterment, as ET/Angels will only come AFTER we do.

The great earth changes depend on exactly how much of this we, as the human race, can accomplish. World wide destruction or peace? It is our choice.”–Drake Kent, posted on Facebook, July 8, 2012

A very nice message from Drake, no? The only thing I would question, that doesn’t feel right to me, is the claim that a long, long time ago, “the Galactic Federation of Light didn’t act quickly enough” to prevent the “bad guys” from infiltrating our planet. This may be what the Galactic Federation of Light believes (they might have really felt they were inadequate). However, from the perspective of the Divine Plan, from the perspective of the Higher Self that’s connected to Source, the truth is more empowering (and more glorious) than that.

The Divine Plan is really about spiritual growth. It was and still is part of the Divine Plan that this planet be an intense place for personal and spiritual growth (that occurs as quickly as possible when souls experience great challenges). But for those who are ready to experience the next step in the process, it’s now becoming possible to grow and learn through joy, through connecting with your higher self and following through with your inner guidance.

I have known for several years now that we will not be visited or handed things to us on a silver platter (even special technologies) until we take the mature path to spiritual growth and become spiritual adults. (When we’re just handed things, where is the growth?) Besides, Source is not going to cheat us out of the incredibly empowering experience of cleaning up our own messes. Cleaning up “our nest” is not just about cleaning up the Earth, but about clearing up our own karma.

There are many ways to clean up your “nest,” besides the obvious ones. Putting your money into local, small businesses, for one. Eating right, getting healthy, stopping the taking of drugs. Do what you can, and allow the Divine to take care of the parts you truly can’t. (Often in very interesting ways!) Divine intervention works when YOU follow your inner guidance and fulfill your higher purpose. And enlightenment comes a lot faster when your focus is on fulfilling your unique contribution.

What the Galactic Federation does or does not do really doesn’t interest me a whole lot right now. When they come, they come. (If they arrived right now, that would screw up a lot of things we’ve been working so hard on for ages.)

In summary, The Galactic Federation of Light, the “higher forces,” aren’t going to do it for us. You have the higher force within you. It’s your responsibility to use it. The Galactic Federation will keep their vow to have us figure this mystery out for ourselves. And Source will not cheat us of the incredibly beautiful and empowering experience of discovering who we really are.

Many in the spiritual communities are discussing the Event (or events) that will awaken the masses and trigger the Great Shift in Consciousness that will eventually transform the world for the better. (This topic would be completely uninteresting if we actually lived in a world that worked for all….)

Channel Blossom Goodchild, in her latest blog post, “There is to take place an EVENT that will give souls a kick start!” asked her guides questions regarding Ascension / Awakening. In this blog post I help clarify the answers she was given as concretely as possible. I offer this different perspective because of what I’ve already experienced firsthand. Blossom asked about Ascension,

“I feel that we don’t actually go anywhere. We still stay on planet Earth, yet move into a Higher dimension upon it. Can you clarify this for me please?”

True, you don’t actually “go” or even “move” anywhere, except deeper within you to the part of you known as your higher self / soul (which is your connection with Source). You will attain a higher level understanding, a bigger picture understanding, of the process of life and of your journey here. This understanding comes from many “aha” moments and insights that arise in you as a result of following through with your inner guidance promptly and consistently.

It’s not about having one profound insight or moment. Rather, gaining a whole new understanding is a result of experiencing many new insights and synchronicities, where each insight is like a piece of a puzzle. Over time your mind will put the “puzzle pieces” (new insights) together, which will eventually result in a higher level perspective / understanding. As this happens, you will make peace with your life and clear your karma. This is what the Ascension process is all about.

You clear your own karma by understanding the bigger picture of your life. When you connect with your higher self and receive insights about your life, you will come to understand your life choices and your life plan and how it all fits in with Divine Plan–which will give you peace and clear your karma. The truth comes from connecting with your higher self (which is within you) and following your inner guidance.

Blossom’s guides then bring up how this shift in consciousness will be catalyzed:

“There is to be an undertaking of great magnitude that shall surely rock the boat for many of you. This we accept in our realms as being unavoidable. Yet … do we feel this shall put you in danger? Of course not. There can be NO danger … IF/WHEN you understand that it is YOU that decides your journey.”

Blossom asks, “Can I interrupt here … an undertaking of great magnitude? … What … like a massive pole shift?

“Like a shift in consciousness,” her guides responded.

Okay, her guides seem to be going round in circles. What they’re referring to is an event or series of events that will catalyze the shift in consciousness. I will try to explain what I had known for years from my personal experience about what will cause the shift in consciousness. By the way, the “pole shift” is an inner pole shift; it refers to the shift from your personality self being your “North Pole” to your higher self being your “North Pole” (and your personality self standing behind / supporting your higher self).

Several years ago, something happened in my life that was quite devastating. In fact, it wasn’t just one thing, but many puzzling / unsettling events that happened in my life over the course of a few years, events that actually made no sense to me. About a year into these events, I sought answers in the spiritual community and was guided to a woman who channeled the Counsel of Light. (Believe me, I wouldn’t have gone that route if it hadn’t been for the strange, painful events that I couldn’t explain that were happening in my life, as well as my being conscious of the dysfunctional state of the world.)

The Counsel of Light primed me a bit on what was to come and told me to look within for the answers, because I “already had everything figured out” and it was my purpose to write books that shared what I learned with others, to help those who would go through similar experiences later. They also motivated me to embark on this project by promising that my writings would become “very popular.” (I write about all these experiences in the book, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening.)

Of course I didn’t have anything figured out at the time they relayed their messages to me, and them saying that I had was, to say the least, confusing. My soul / higher self may have had things figured out, but I certainly wasn’t conscious of what my higher self knew, or the inner resources I had. I did not have my higher self’s (soul’s) perspective and understanding available to me in my waking consciousness. (That I would have to discover through following my inner guidance.)  So … I “looked within” for the answers to the strange, unsettling events in my life because I just knew I would NOT find them in any books or gurus or religions or on any stone tablets.

I committed to doing this 100% because basically, I was in deep trouble and I experienced deep pain. (Heck, if life were running smoothly, I wouldn’t have bothered to seek deeper answers!)

So I looked within*, developed the confidence and the courage to follow through with my inner guidance consistently, and then experienced many synchronicities, new insights, a lot of “reprogramming” going on in my brain, until eventually, I got the higher level understanding (that I write about in my eBook, Activating 2012). So … the “events” in my life (that were difficult to experience) turned out to be the catalysts to my awakening / Ascension.

*Please note that there’s a lot more to “looking within” than what those words literally imply. Looking within (or connecting within, meditating) is only the beginning of the process of spiritual growth and upliftment. There are other important steps involved that few, if any, talk about. For example, if you keep looking inwardly but you ignore the inner guidance you receive (often it’s very subtle) or if your insights never get applied in real life, you will not get anywhere.

The Shift that will happen in the world is a shift in consciousness first. And the shift in consciousness will affect individuals on all levels, including what you do and how you do it, and this is how the positive changes will come about in the world. (For example: raising your awareness about GMO foods will help you avoid them, which will create positive changes in your health http://nosubhealth.com/ and well-being.)

Blossom’s guides continue,

“What you came here to do and HOW to go about it … you ‘think’ you don’t know. Yet we say you do … within each one of you … you KNOW what to do to make this shift into a Higher plane take place.”

Blossom replies,

“I accept that we KNOW … trouble is … I can’t remember! You keep asking us to remember , but I’ve TRULY forgotten.”

But we were supposed to forget on a conscious level, so that we could play our roles in this Earth Experiment with full conviction. So don’t look to your conscious mind to try to remember. The way you remember is, again, to connect with your higher self and follow through with your inner guidance because this will result in the aha moments, the new insights, the favorable synchronicities and the glorious and heavenly moments that will cause you one day to say to yourself, “Oh, I’m getting it now; I “remember” why I’m here doing what I’m doing.” (Re-member means to “put the pieces of the puzzle together.”)

Blossom’s guides continued,

“The shift IS happening. You ARE moving up into a Higher plane … WITHIN YOURSELF. IT IS NOT ANOTHER PLACE.”

Then, they said,

“WE WILL ADD SOMETHING OF GREAT INSIGHT AND IMPORTANCE …There is to take place an EVENT that will give souls a kick start! It will give souls a choice as to follow ‘IT’ through … or remain as they are.”

Yep, so we are waiting for this event (events) that will act as a catalyst for the shift in consciousness … meaning the shift from the current low-level understanding of life here to the higher level understanding. Because what we’ve been taught / programmed to believe in the past will not explain what’s occurring, many people will then be “looking within” for the answers.

In a previous article titled, Spiritual Awakening Symptoms – Essential Signs of Spiritual Awakening, I put together a list of 9 of the more common signs and symptoms of spiritual awakening that I consider essential to the awakening process. In this article, I discuss meaningful dreams (one of the 9 signs of spiritual awakening) in more detail.

Intense, vivid dreams that seem to point you in a certain direction are one way your higher self guides you, particularly when the dreams reflect a process you are currently undergoing in real life. Your dreams may also help confirm subtle feelings you have that you’re not yet sure about. (This used to be one of my issues–needing more than subtle feelings to be sure about something, needing signs from the Universe to confirm my hunches.)

In my experience with dream interpretation, the further along in the spiritual awakening process you are, the clearer your dreams will be and the more they will help guide you in your daily life. The dreams will be in metaphor form, often in metaphors that make sense to you.

An example of a meaningful dream that guided me

Before I get into an example of a meaningful dream that helped guide me, first a little background: Around the time of this dream (October of 2005), I had already been committed to following my inner guidance promptly and consistently and was well into my awakening process. I viewed the dream as a message from the divine, and as guidance meant to help get me to the next level in the Ascension process. The following is an excerpt from my memoir What Everyone Believed.

“With a pounce onto my chest, my kitten awakened me from a dream the day I  was revising this chapter. In my dream, I was on my way to Alaska as a passenger  in a new, comfortable, European-style city bus. I was aware  that I’ve never been to Alaska, only to Canada, and I was thinking that going to  Alaska would be just as easy as going to Canada.

“The bus traveled through a picturesque, green valley in between beautiful  snow-capped peaks, maybe ten miles from one side to the other. The valley  reminded me of Davos, Switzerland, still snowy in the higher elevations though  it was almost Summer. The bus meandered, switchbacking up an incline, went here  and there, stopping in many places for passengers, taking its time. Impatient, I  asked a passenger sitting next to me how long this trip to Alaska would take.  ‘It’ll be around four hours,’ she said.

Four hours? That was way too long for me! I wanted to get there sooner! I  explained that if I drove my own car, it would take me only two hours. So  I decided to get off of public transportation and drive my own vehicle. I pulled  the signal to stop and got off the bus. That’s when the cat woke me up.”–end of excerpt.

I had interpreted “driving my own vehicle to Alaska” as a sign of stepping up my awakening efforts and later, as a sign that I had broken away from the “public transportation” of awakening (the rhetoric, the public discourse, the language that’s long on flowery words but short on concrete, practical guidance)–and getting there sooner. (Well, one thing I know about my higher self, my soul, is that it’s been a spark-plug of individualism and breaking away ever since the beginning of time. But now my soul has come full circle and is assisting with unification.) I also got that the Ascension process this time around was different from all the other times.

So what did I do / change after this dream? I began a second type of meditation daily, one designed to increase my capacity to access wisdom and insights (“energy”) from the higher realms (from spirit / Source) and carry it over to my waking consciousness (mind / brain) as clearly as possible. And then I spent almost 2 more years revising my memoir, until I was clear about the bigger picture.

So why am I telling you to pay attention to your dreams? Because it’s one of the signs of spiritual awakening that also acts as a catalyst and as guidance for your life. Because as you’re probably aware, we’re living in extremely important times right now, times that call for prompt and right actions. A recent channeled message from Mathew stresses this:

“…There isn’t much time left for the masses to reach that level of consciousness about what is behind wars or religious dogmas or any other facet of life that is of dark origin and intent. The light [I read it as understanding] that would let individuals avoid severe psychic trauma is the same light [understanding] that would enable them to physically ascend with Earth.  Many will not be ready to accept that for millennia Earth’s population has been controlled by darkness through fear, deception and various forms of mind control.”–excerpt from Mathew Ward’s channeled message, June 3, 2012.

The further you are in your spiritual awakening process, the more your dreams will be meaningful to you and will help guide you, and the more you will continue to awaken to the truth as gently as possible. Connecting and integrating with your higher self (by following through with your inner guidance / divine guidance), as usual, is the key.

I listened to a couple interviews of “Drake” over the weekend where he explained how freedom will be returned to the people of the United States (and the world), with the cooperation of the country’s military, Native American organizations, as well as other freedom-inspired groups. The events that are being planned over the next couple of months (which include the arrests of certain elite who have committed crimes against the population) will no doubt be a shock to many, he explained. However, the changes in society and in the economy that will be implemented will be, in the longer term, for the greater good of all. (Googling Drake + Deatra as well as Drake + David Wilcock is a good place to start for learning more about this development.)

I’ve also read blog posts from light-workers who are not on the same page with Drake. One reason for this may be that the Drake plan does not resemble the possible scenarios proposed by certain Channels (which often include Disclosure, reunion with our space brothers and sisters, as well as getting their cool technology). It seems–at least to me–that if things don’t go according to some predicted scenario, certain lightworkers won’t be happy.

There’s also evidence that many lightworkers are perplexed right now. Just today I read a blog post of Visionkeeper, who was wondering whether lightworkers are even going in the right direction. From the comments and emails she has been getting on her blog, people are “very discouraged right now, they feel let down and manipulated yet again.” She acknowledges that many people want proof that things are going in the right direction, but asks them to continue to believe with love in their hearts, without proof. She also concludes that we are seriously being tested.

Well, I’m certain that the changes will not happen according to anyone’s predicted scenario. No one knows how this time of change will play out, not even Jesus himself. I think it’s best to let go of the addiction to having to know beforehand how it will all manifest and keep trusting in yourself and in the Divine Plan.

I understand that many people, including many lightworkers, are perplexed about who to listen to, who to believe these days but I must say this is exactly the right place to be. Because a big part of the problem here has to do with looking to others for what to do or believe.

Your Pain: The Big Test

The Big Test is not about believing in some channeling or some “Ascension scenario.” It’s all about believing in yourself. It’s about being deeply connected with your higher self and this deep connection with yourself is what will get you through these challenging times. It’s about you being sovereign and whole. Because when you connect deeply with your higher self and follow through with your guidance you get to a point where you trust in yourself and in the divine plan–not in some Channel or some proposed scenario. Trusting yourself rather than some Channel or predicted scenario is part of the Big Test.

The problem as I see it is this: 1. Relying on others (Channels, gurus, and others) for what to believe and 2. There were (and still are) too many people channeling prophesies that never happened–which has disappointed many. (Well, if you had done your inner and outer work you would have understood why the predictions that have been channeled could not have possibly been a part of Divine Plan. I understand from some compelling firsthand experiences that any scenario that even hinted of rescue would not be a part of Divine Plan.)

Your Proof: Feedback From the Universe

The manual for how to successfully get through this difficult time of change is within you, but this means reconnecting with your higher self and developing enough confidence in that connection so that you follow through with your inner guidance even if it’s inconvenient or uncomfortable…because this is when you will receive feedback from the Universe (that will motivate you to go on).

You need to reconnect with your higher self and follow through with your individual inner guidance promptly and consistently, because this is when you will receive regular feedback–in the form of favorable synchronicities, new insights, more flow, and greater universal cooperation in your life–which will help you recognize that you’re definitely on the right track. (Re: this reconnecting process, there are a couple of things that usually trip people up, and I go into these issues in my 2 books and on my blog).

It is best not have any expectations about 2012 prophesies or “scenarios.” The divine plan will not go according to some person’s channeling or understanding. There will no doubt be surprises. I would caution even lightworkers to let go of their preconceived notions of how this “ascension” is to play out. Everyone is to connect within and follow their own inner guidance. Connect within and become a sovereign being (with direct access to Source) and you will fulfill your part in the divine plan.

It is interesting that although the Drake plan may appear to be highly organized, Drake says there is no parent organization or leader behind it. (I can definitely get that…)

I propose that the following is the missing piece right now: Reconnecting with your higher self and developing enough confidence in that connection so that you follow through with your inner guidance promptly and consistently even when it’s inconvenient or places you outside your comfort zone. By doing this, you will experience the synchronicities and insights and gain the bigger picture understanding and confidence in your inner self that will have you stop listening to others for guidance on what to do–even your most cherished guru or “sacred” book–because you will have proven to yourself that you have direct connection to Source. (Which is, as I have already mentioned, the Big Test.)
