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 tramadol no prescription 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.

Reconnected: A Spiritual Awakening Memoir

Reconnected: A Spiritual Awakening Memoir really does reconnect, according to “Hall of Fame, Top 1000” Amazon Reviewer Dr. Joseph S. Maresca. Dr. Maresca goes on to say that, Reconnected: A Spiritual Awakening Memoir by Christine Hoeflich is an excellent book on the mechanics of tuning into the spiritual domain. Christine explains the inner self, accessing intuition and showcasing creativity.”

Reconnected explores the steps needed for strengthening the relationship with, and developing trust in, the higher self, in intuition, despite societal expectations. It lays the foundation for how readers can understand their soul’s bigger plan, and how to access Interconnectedness.

Christine said that she discovered on her journey that when people work with more than simply their will alone, they gain the support of the divine, helping miracles and magic to occur that might not have been possible through their will alone.

This Kindle book is available today, Wednesday November 2, 2016 until midnight PST time at no cost. Readers may download the eBook onto their Kindle, laptop or smartphone for free. (Amazon.com has free downloadable apps for reading Kindle books on laptops and smartphones.)

The following excerpt is just a small sample of what’s in store for the reader, taken from the “Superconductor” chapter:

After what had happened in merely a matter of months, I was only motivated to connect further to become an even clearer conduit of creative energy, to see what would be possible continuing on this course of listening within for guidance. I had a sense this was only the beginning and I wanted to see what was next, and how far I could go.

With a pounce onto my chest, our kitten awakened me from a dream the day I was revising this chapter. I was on my way to Alaska as a passenger in what looked like a new, comfortable European-style city bus. In my dream, 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. It reminded me of the area around 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 for passengers to get on, taking its time. Impatient, I asked a woman 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 to her that if I drove my own car, it would take me only two hours. So I decided to get off 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.

So if the key to memory and the key to dreams is metaphor, was this dream telling me to forgo mass transportation or public direction and follow my own, to power up my vehicle and drive up the spiral of evolution? Furthermore, I got that Alaska doesn’t have to be viewed as some destination or end point because in reality, once you get to Alaska, there’s a whole new, big wonderful state to explore.

With a new level of enthusiasm I began to do a second meditation (a grounding meditation) to strengthen my connection with the heavenly dimension and with my environment, so as to help clarify and completely unveil my mission for this lifetime. (The “heart and soul” meditation described earlier in this book connects you to your inner core, while this grounding meditation helps to further strengthen the “vertical” connection of the above with the below.)

At least twice a day, I practiced a simple three-to-ten minute exercise for this purpose, an exercise slightly modified from one I had learned in the Soul Recognition Workshop.

Standing with my feet shoulder-width apart, my hands hanging loosely at my sides, my knees slightly bent, my eyes closed, and exhaling slowly, I’d imagine energy or sunlight flowing from the sun (or source, or the dimensions above) down to the top of my head, entering my body at the crown of my head and going down through my body in a line as straight and as coherent as a laser beam, down my spine all the way through to the bottom of my feet, to the core of the earth. Then inhaling slowly I’d imagine this energy reflect back up from the center of earth, through the bottom of my feet and the rest of my body to the top of my head and back up to the sun, or the higher dimensions. I would repeat this several times, imagining the energy or light flowing up and then down; inhale energy going up, exhale energy going down, with a short pause at each endpoint, and sometimes as long as I could hold it. (Alternatively, I sometimes imagined this energy going out to the universe with each out-breath and coming back into my inner core with each in-breath.)

I’d do this exercise expecting the connection to both my physical environment and to the heavenly or angelic realms strengthen and the energy to flow in between with more clarity and ease. This grounding exercise, as well as paying attention to my inner voice throughout the day, helped deepen the connection to the interconnectedness and made the inner guidance clearer. It was a simple practice I could do anywhere, but it seemed to do the job. –excerpt from Reconnected: A Spiritual Awakening Memoir

Christine is seeking more awareness and more reviews for her book, and the Amazon eBook free day is one way to help spread that awareness.

Dr. Joseph S. Maresca finishes his review by writing, “Overall, Christine’s book covers the intuitive side of being in a way that few psychology, philosophy or theology books succeed in doing rationally.”

Ayahuasca Spiritual ActivatorEarly last month a friend mentioned she was going to participate in her second Ayahuasca ceremony—which made my ears perk up. I had no idea what an Ayahuasca ceremony is like, only that it involves some kind of herbal drink that makes some people throw up and the night before, one could do a Native American sweat lodge ceremony as part of the experience. Since this friend is a seeker, always searching for healing and greater spiritual awareness (and is grounded in her job as the CFO / CPA of a small company), I was all in.

The other thing I knew about Ayahuasca is what my 21-year-old daughter told me when I said I was going to an Ayahuasca ceremony—Chelsea Handler has done it. (Chelsea Handler, I found out, is a hilarious TV talk show host.)

After registering I received instructions for how to prepare for the ceremony. This included eating cleanly and lightly at least the three days before the ceremony, staying away from violent movies and images, and a few other precautions, such as avoiding alcohol and prescription premier pharmacy medications. On the day of the sweat lodge, only fresh fruits were recommended. No problemo, amigo; it’ll be a piece of cake, I thought to myself.

We packed camping equipment such as chairs, sleeping mats, blankets, and coolers with fresh fruit and plenty of water. At the ceremony site, we set up our tent and helped others with their tents. The people arriving for the event were open and friendly and ranged in age from their early 20s through their late 60s.

We were instructed to come to the event with an intention. I wrote my intention on the drive over: to gain momentum with my higher purpose and life.

The Sweat Lodge Ceremony

In the evening a fire was started in the fire pit and rocks were being heated. The rocks would go into the blanket-covered half-dome structure that would serve as the sweat lodge after dusk.

Crawling in one by one, we sat on the ground along the perimeter of the sweat lodge. Hot rocks were brought in, along with a pail of water. Every 15 minutes or so, new freshly glowing rocks from the fire outside …

The two leaders drummed and chanted Native American songs and prayers. We endured the heat and steam for an hour in complete darkness. My long cotton dress got saturated with sweat. The intent was to cleanse ourselves of toxins and prepare for the Ayahuasca the next morning. I enjoyed the sweat lodge and only got slightly uncomfortable the last 10 minutes or so.

The next morning, I had tea and a couple pieces of fruit. We took down our tents and packed them into our vehicles. The ceremony would begin around 9 a.m.

Ayahuasca—the Most Spiritual of all Herbal Substances?

About 50 people gathered with yoga or sleeping mats, blankets and bottles of water. The ceremony area had already been prepared: tarps had been laid on the ground, then utility blankets on top of them. Beautiful art blankets hung from clotheslines attached to trees.

I heard that we’d be on the tarp area for six hours. Although I knew the ceremony included the ingesting of an herbal medicine that alters your consciousness, I had no idea what we’d be doing for six whole hours. Chanting? Drumming? Prayer, Indian style? Role playing? I had no reference for what was to come.

Two leaders, a male and a female, and about a dozen volunteers helped with the process. We received the Ayahuasca medicine in small paper cups. It looked and tasted something like an herbal / mushroom expresso. Most people swallowed it in one gulp. I took four sips and got it all down. It didn’t taste bad.

The sun shone through the canopy of trees. Music came on via an audio system. I lay back on my mat to relax and take it all in. There was a bucket by each person’s side, just in case we needed to puke.

After about 20 minutes or so, I felt the herbal medicine begin its work. One of the first things I felt was a warm glow beginning in the center of my body near my rib cage (where the soul seed is). This feeling reassured me. Then I felt things shifting in my body, as if channels were opening inside my body and brain. I felt something shift inside and voilà—the sky instantly got brighter and the leaves on the trees became radiant with energy.

Within an hour I was fully in the process. I had my eyes open pretty much the whole time. I told myself I was going to be conscious throughout the process.

It’s hard to describe in words what I experienced, but it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my whole life. I saw, among the canopy of trees, what I can only describe as the Interconnectedness of all life. I saw the web of life.

I Saw the Interconnectedness

If you’ve read my memoir on intuition and awakening, you might remember that the Counsel of Light had told me that the Interconnectedness was real. And you might remember that I had experienced glimpses of it when I followed my inner guidance and amazing synchronicities occurred. But now I could actually see it. I mean I could actually see the Interconnectedness; I could see the web of life and it was so beautiful. It was as if the tree spirits and all of nature were saying to me, we’re here; we’re here for you; we support you. Can you see it? Can you see the bigger picture and how we’re here supporting you?

I sat up and looked at the people all around me. They all appeared completely normal, no distortion there whatsoever. But just beyond them the trees became animated and the leaves dazzled and danced. It was a most interesting visual experience.

My Ayahuasca experience affirmed and confirmed my larger mission to help people strengthen their relationship with their higher self. The day I’m writing this, less than a week later, I feel my intention of moving forward with momentum in this mission is being supported. I feel stronger and I’m moving forward faster.

I did not throw up. Sometimes a few tears came as I witnessed the beauty of nature, the beauty of the experience, the beauty of humanity’s journey. I did not experience anything dark or negative.

Ayahuasca also Releases Toxins

Most people threw up, but not everyone. Throwing up helped release toxins, both the physical as well as the emotional kind. I suspect what came up for people were the things that were blocking them from feeling better in life, the things that were blocking their spiritual awakening and personal growth. With the help of the Ayahuasca, they could now see things with clear vision and process what there was to process. And once they threw up, they felt a lot better immediately.

I can understand why people call Ayahuasca the most spiritual of all herbal substances. Whatever is there for you, you’ll see it with more clarity. Sometimes you won’t like what you see, but you won’t escape what’s there. After all that puking, people felt and looked transformed.

Ayahuasca is like the proverbial red pill. You only need one experience like this and your perspective changes forever. And afterwards, you can’t help but want to have a steady connection with the Interconnectedness. You can’t help but want that kind of clarity. You can’t help but want to continue to strengthen the relationship with your higher self and feel the Interconnectedness working with you daily. And I suspect, strange and wonderful things are bound to happen in your life from then on that no one can predict.

Your Higher SelfThere are many good reasons to connect with, and strengthen your relationship with, your higher self. As you’re probably aware, your higher self is also known as your soul, your true self, your authentic self, your inner being, and your access point to God, Spirit, Infinity, the Divine. The top ten reasons to connect with your higher self, in no particular order of importance, are listed below.

1. To discover your higher life purpose.

Everyone has a higher life purpose that we are to fulfill during this time of rapid spiritual awakening and transformation. The way you discover your higher purpose is by developing a deeper, clearer and stronger relationship with your higher self. The “map” or “blueprint” to your higher life purpose is within you and your higher self will guide you on whatever your next step is.

2. To rev up your intuition.

Nothing increases your intuition better than connecting with and paying attention to your higher self. Your higher self will help guide you on your daily path, and you’ll experience more favorable synchronicities. This means whatever you need so that you can fulfill the next step of your higher life purpose will show up for you.

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

3. To gain access to your wisdom from all time.

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

When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll begin to receive in the present moment the wisdom from all your past lives, all aspects of yourself, and your innate wisdom will become increasingly available to you now.

4. To clear your karma and make sense of your life and “soul contracts” with others.

When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll begin to understand your life and your soul agreements with others from the perspective of the higher self–which 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 helped you grow). Almost nothing feels better than gratitude when it’s authentic.

5. To 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 strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll also notice the constant chattering in your head will diminish greatly (if not completely) and the battles that sometimes occur in your mind will diminish.

6. To finally realize your potential.

The energy of your soul is the energy of your potential. (Your potential includes your innate wisdom, and your unique gifts and abilities.)  When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll create a life that you’ll actually love to live.

7. To access Interconnectedness and all its gifts.

When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll connect with Interconnectedness and receive its gifts. This means you’ll experience more flow in your life, more favorable and amazing synchronicities, a sense of perfect timing, greater cooperation with the people in your life, as well as new insights that help increase your understanding of life. These are considered the gifts of Interconnectedness. And when you benefit, so will everyone and everything else around you–as everyone and everything is connected to you through the Interconnectedness.

8. To jump start your spiritual awakening and “Ascension process”

When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll raise your awareness, awaken spiritually, and expand (“ascend”) your consciousness.  In fact, you’ll begin to see the world from a higher perspective, 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 this higher perspective, your behaviors and habits will change, even those habits you’ve had a hard time changing up until that point.

9. To work with more than just your will alone.

When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll be working with more than just your will alone. You’ll have the support of Divine will. Which means that miracles and magic will occur that aren’t possible through your will alone.

Your higher self has access to the larger Divine Plan. By fulfilling your role in the Divine Plan (by fulfilling your higher life purpose), you’ll help bring about the Golden Age for humanity.

10. To finally experience true happiness.

It’s true. When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll finally experience true happiness. And that’s because your higher self will be getting expressed in the world. (If your soul doesn’t get expressed in the world, you won’t experience much happiness.)

Plus, when you begin to understand what’s really going on here on Earth, the higher perspective of what’s going on, God’s view, that alone will bring you tons of joy.

So these are the top 10 reasons why it’s worth your while to strengthen your relationship with your higher self.

Pope Francis Year of MercyAt the Catholic funeral mass at my Mom’s funeral a week and a half ago, I picked up the Polish-English Catholic prayer book and read an excerpt from the back cover that was written by Pope Francis last year. Pope Francis describes the current year of December 8, 2015 through November 20, 2016 as the “Jubilee Year of Mercy:”

‘The Jubilee year will close with the liturgical Solemnity of Christ the King on 20 November 2016. On that day … we shall be filled, above all, with a sense of gratitude and thanksgiving … for having granted us an extraordinary time of grace… How much I desire that the year to come will be steeped in mercy, so that we can go out to every man and woman, bringing the goodness and tenderness of God! May the balm of mercy reach everyone, both believers and those far away, as a sign that the Kingdom of God is already present in our midst!”—Pope Francis, “Misericordiae Vultus” (“The Face of Mercy”)

Indeed, I’ve been writing for a while now that the Kingdom of God is already present in our midst, and I will explain what I mean by that. I’ll also explain why an awakened heart is required to truly get this, as well as what is required for one to awaken, as certainly from the surface level of consciousness and existence the world doesn’t look all that heavenly at the moment. In fact, from the surface level perspective, many would argue that the Kingdom of God is far from here, and many are still waiting for the rapture, or for “the end of the world when all souls shall rise from the dead,” or for some other transcendental, ethereal state to arrive through some sort of divine intervention.

But listen up. The only divine intervention that will occur here is the one that happens when you cultivate a strong relationship with your higher self and follow through with your soul’s guidance, your inner guidance, promptly and consistently—which is what Christ had done. This is also what is required in order for you to awaken and it’s how you access the Kingdom of God (both the inner and the outer Kingdoms).

Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ accomplished the mission he had set for himself. He was able to accomplish his mission by cultivating a strong connection with his Higher Self (his connection with God, to the “Father”), conducting his life in such a way that his Higher Self was in the “driver’s seat,” and following through with his inner guidance promptly and consistently.

The Scriptures contain many examples of Christ connecting to spirit and then following through with his higher guidance. In fact, one time Christ spent 40 days alone, in the desert, so he could connect within and be with his “Father,” before gaining the clarity and strength needed to go on with the rest of his life’s work.

Yes, Jesus had a choice back then (well, sort of …). He could have simply gone along with the establishment and not made any waves. But he chose to spend 40 days in “the desert,” in meditation and communion with spirit. Then he chose to go through with where his guidance was taking him.

Why? Because the world was full of ignorance and the people—whom he loved with all his heart and soul—suffered greatly because of this ignorance. (Yep, there wasn’t much of a choice there for him at all … )

And after that, the world was never again the same.

Now, two thousand years later, it’s our turn to cultivate a strong relationship with our higher self (our connection with God, with the “Father”), conduct our lives in such a way such that our higher self is in the driver’s seat, and follow through with our inner guidance (the promptings of our higher self, of our spirit) promptly and consistently, too.

In other words, it’s time for us to fulfill Christ’s legacy.

Some would argue that this is impossible, because we live on a planet of spiritual teenagers. But the truth is, following Christ’s example is how spiritual teenagers transform themselves into spiritual adults.

They do this by first cultivating a strong relationship with their higher self, and then they conduct their lives in such a way so that their higher self (their authentic self, their soul) is in the “driver’s seat.” Of course, part of this process includes following through with their inner guidance promptly and consistently, just as Jesus Christ had done.

Following Christ’s example is how we transform ourselves from spiritual teenagers into spiritual adults. Following Christ’s example is how we “return to God.” It’s how we gain access to God’s grace. (The “mercy” Pope Francis refers to again and again.) And following Christ’s example is how we’ll resolve the many issues of this planet, and it is how Christ’s vision for a Heaven on Earth (the outer Kingdom of God), will finally be made manifest. Because Heaven on Earth can’t exist on a planet full of spiritual teenagers.

How many spiritual teenagers are still waiting for Christ to return to Earth in the flesh, to take those who believe in him (and in his connection to God) up into Heaven with him? How many believers are still waiting to be swooped up and taken up into “Heaven” simply because of their belief in Christ’s connection to God, or their belief in his divinity, or their recitation of specific prayers? How long will they continue to wait, while ignoring Christ’s example and teachings? How long will they choose to remain ignorant?

I assert that Jesus Christ has already accomplished his mission, his work is already done, and in order for you to see this (including seeing that the Kingdom of God is already present in your midst) you must simply follow in Christ’s footsteps and actually strengthen the relationship with your Higher Self, with your own heart and soul—your direct connection with God. Because let’s face it, there are some things you get only through action and firsthand experience, not through recitation of doctrine, theorization, belief, cogitation, book learning—as Christ’s own disciples had eventually come to realize. This is one of them.

At an event I attended last month (March 2016), I heard Dr. Sean Stephenson share an incredible story about what happened when he followed an intuitive urge he thought was—to say the least—strange.

You might have heard of Sean before. He’s the three-foot tall motivational speaker / psychotherapist who’s been on TED talks and TV and who gets around in a wheel chair.

Born with a rare brittle bone disorder, doctors didn’t expect him to live more than 24 hours. His leg bones are so fragile they don’t support his weight. Just sneezing can fracture his ribs.

But Sean not only proved the doctors wrong, he became a motivational speaker at the young age of 17. He even got his PhD so that he could better help those people who, after his talks, approached him for advice on personal issues. These days, he also coaches public speakers. And this is where Sean’s amazing story begins …

So it’s near the end of January (2016) and Sean is staying at a hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. He and his group of five or six mastermind clients (who are working together for one year, paying Sean a handsome fee of $40,000 for the privilege) are meeting the next morning for an intense workshop on public speaking. One of the members of the group can’t be present as he’s having open-heart surgery where he lives in Long Beach, California.

At four in the morning at the hotel, Sean awakens to the voice of his intuition telling him to change the day’s agenda. Instead of working in a hotel room as usual, he is to gather the group together and drive the seven hours to visit with the one member who’s about to have heart surgery.

Yes, he heard that right. Drive to Long Beach, visit with their friend for a few minutes, hug him, wish him well. Then drive seven hours back to Scottsdale.

Sean’s thinking, what? No way! That’s just wonky! (His words.)

But the inner voice persists and won’t let him sleep. In the morning, Sean decides to enroll his group in the new plan. But how will he enroll them?

By asking a loaded question, of course. “Friends, how much do you trust me?” he asks the group. Then he informs them about the new plan: they’ll drive to Long Beach, give their friend a hug, and then drive back to Scottsdale.

Because they trust Sean, everyone’s on … that is, except for one lady. But she goes up to her hotel room, has a bitch fit and cries. And then she comes down a half hour later, ready to go.

Van service is ordered and things get more wonky: the van’s driver is a paraplegic.

But no worries. The paraplegic has all the safety features and controls and he’s an awesome driver. It’s just that at the age of 17, a terrible car accident left him paralyzed. Anyway, with not a moment to waste, they all pile into the van.

But … there’s another little problem: there are more passengers than car seats. Which means brittle-bones Sean can’t sit in his child-sized car seat. He’ll just have to sit in someone’s lap, it’s decided.

One of Sean’s female clients happily volunteers. A former prostitute, meth-addict, and alcoholic, they met nine years ago. He helped transform her life, and ever since then she’s been telling the world that Sean had saved her life. (Of course she’d be the one to volunteer …)

After the seven hour road trip, the group arrives in Long Beach and visits with their friend. He’s astonished to see them, of course. They hug him, wish him well, and his heart gets filled. (And what better way to go into heart surgery than with a full heart?)

It’s time to return to Scottsdale. They pile into the van … with Sean sitting in the former prostitute / meth-addict / alcoholic’s lap again.

Partway back, Sean unbuckles himself and turns around to talk to the three people in the back, one of whom is a soft-spoken, quiet Asian lady from Canada. He wants to make sure she and the other two people in the back are okay. (After all, they flew in for Sean’s coaching, not a road trip to California.) And as he’s facing the back of the van, a terrible, terrible noise assaults his senses. Did they just hit a metal garbage can in the middle of the highway?

But it sure as heck wasn’t a garbage can. Swerving into their lane out of the blue came a tractor trailer. Everyone saw it except for Sean, who happened to be facing the back in that moment.

I don’t have the exact details on the collision, but the tractor trailer struck the van, lodged it underneath somehow and dragged it along. At the moment of impact one of the guys in the back flew forward and struck the window; the other passengers got jerked around. So they were being dragged by this tractor trailer and it took  f o r e v e r  for it to finally stop, explained Sean.

As you can imagine, Sean’s mind was spinning. Is this what his intuition guided him into? Him and his mastermind speaking group? What in the world?

But wait. They’re all alive, waiting for first response to arrive. And when the first police officer arriving at the scene recognizes Sean, things get really wonky.

“Hey, I know you!” the first response officer says. “You’re Sean Stephenson! Dude! I can’t believe it’s you! I’m a big fan of yours and I follow you on Facebook.” He goes on and on about being a fan of Sean’s…

But then later, after evaluating the situation, the police officer explains that if Sean were in his child seat, he would have broken his ribs … and things could have been much worse. (Now, that’s not to say car seats don’t save many lives. They do. It’s just that this situation was you might say unique.)

Plus, if Sean had been facing forward at the time of the collision, he would have seen what was coming and tensed up, which would have made him more prone to injury. Since he was facing backward and unaware of the impending crash, his body was totally relaxed.

And because the former prostitute / meth addict / alcoholic was facing forward and was aware of what was happening, she held onto Sean and absorbed all the energy of the impact, so that Sean was left with not even a bruise.

And … after all these years of telling the world that Sean had saved her life, she now knows that she had saved his.

So she has karmic closure.

And the paraplegic … well, he just happened to save all of their lives. He had experienced a terrible accident in his youth so he knew what to do. He did not panic, and he kept the van steady during the collision and dragging. Because of him, they got away with minor injuries.

Which means the paraplegic has karmic closure, too.

And the mastermind speakers who went along with Sean’s new plan? What about them? Well, Sean explained to them, “Hey guys, you all just doubled your speaking fees!”

Which means the day’s work got done after all …

So …

What does this story mean for you?

Does it give you a sense of wonder … and new hope for humanity?

Does it show you, without a doubt, there’s more to life than what we currently know or believe?

Does it show that following your inner guidance can bring resolution to your life? Can bring blessings and karmic closure?

And does that motivate you to connect within … learn to trust your intuition, and gain the courage it takes to follow it?

If you’ve ever read my articles or my book, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening, you know I’ve had my share of crazy intuition stories.

You know I’ve been telling the world that connecting within and following our inner guidance (meaning, putting our higher self in the driver’s seat of our life) is THE KEY to transforming our lives.

(It’s obvious Sean’s higher self is in the driver’s seat of his life. And by the way, the same is true for Sir Richard Branson, I found out earlier this week. Richard Branson makes business deals without accountants or lawyers, but with his intuition.)

Well, I have some good news to share with you …

Not long ago, I found out that What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening was recognized by publisher North Atlantic Books as one of “four notable spiritual awakening memoirs.” (Along with Eat Pray Love and The Happiness Project—which both sold millions of copies.)

Which tells me my book should be selling in the seven figures, too …

(Yes, the great shift in consciousness—the former name of my blog—is starting to take place …)

So if you don’t have a copy, you’ll want to order one today. Just click on “Spiritual Awakening Memoir” in the menu above and scroll down till you get to the Amazon button. Click the Amazon button and you’ll be taken to my book’s page on Amazon.

Reading it helps connect you to your intuition and increases your confidence so you follow through! So you experience new insights, favorable synchronicities, and the blessings you deserve!

Recently I came across a five minute video of Catherine Austin Fitts talking about her experience of speaking at a spiritual conference to which she was invited. For those not familiar with Catherine Fitts, she has served as managing director and member of the Board of Directors of a major Wall Street investment bank and as Assistant Secretary of Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in the first Bush Administration. Ms. Fitts has been extensively interviewed on KPFA radio, an alternative media outlet, and is currently the publisher of The Solari Report. (Access the video here.)

I found what she shared in the video (uploaded May 30, 2013) about her experience interacting with participants at the spiritual conference extremely compelling, enough to make it the focus of at least a couple of articles on my blog. Ms. Fitts stated,

“I have been asked by a friend to speak to a group called Spiritual Frontiers Foundation. They have a conference once a year where they explore how they can help our society evolve spiritually. They’re very committed to a higher spiritual life. And I have been asked to give a speech called “How The Money Works In Organized Crime” which later became a very funny, a famous article, “Narco-Dollars for Beginners.”

So I’m in the middle of the speech talking about how the U.S. Congress had had hearings about allegations of narcotics trafficking by the intelligence agencies into South Central L.A. It’s called the so called “Dark Alliance Allegations.” At that time the Department of Justice had told a reporter who I was working with that the U.S. Economy launders five hundred billion to a trillion dollars a year in illegal money. That’s not just narcotics trafficking, it’s financial fraud, illegal gambling, everything. So I said to this wonderful group of spiritually evolved committed people, “What would happen if we stop being the global leader in money laundering?”

They said, “Well, you know, it would be a problem because that money would not go to the New York Stock Exchange. If we stopped, you know, the money would leave and go to Hong Kong or Zurich and we’d have trouble refinancing the government deficit.”

So I said, “Well, let’s pretend there’s a big red button up here on the lectern. And if you push that button, you can stop all hard narcotics trafficking in your county, your community, your neighborhood, your state, your country, tomorrow, thus offending the people who control not only a half a trillion to a trillion dollars a year of dirty money but the accumulated capital thereon. Who here will push the button?” And out of a hundred people dedicated to evolving our society spiritually only one would push the button.

I wouldn’t let him answer so I said to the other ninety-nine, “Why would you not push the button?” And they said, “We don’t want our IRA and 401(k) to go down in value. We don’t want our mutual funds to decline and we don’t want our government checks to stop because we don’t, you know, if you had trouble financing the government deficit, our government checks would stop or our taxes would go up.”

And so I said, “So you want the powers to continue to market drugs to your neighbor’s children to keep your taxes low and your 401(k) up.”

And they said, “Yes, that’s right.”

And what was interesting, the epiphany I had that day was that everyone was so afraid to face that, or talk about that, that we couldn’t get to a point where we could do what I call, “turn the red button green.” Because the right question is not, “How do we push the red button? The right question is how do we make money pushing the red button? How do we turn the red button green?” Because if you can make money pushing the red button, then you can push the red button. And no one feels safe enough or comfortable enough to talk about this.

It’s a little bit like…when you take methadone. Methadone or drugs makes your body weaker and weaker and weaker so it can’t possibly be profitable. It’s the same with an economy. The more the economy depends on criminal enterprise the more you’re making money at things that make you economically stupid. Okay? Because you’re doing, you’re getting good at criminal enterprise. You’re getting good at financial fraud instead of getting good at things that really are useful and have some real economic productivity to them. So you’re making your body politic weaker and weaker the more dependent you get on this money. So it can’t lead to anyplace good.

So there is a way to turn the red button green but it starts by being honest with each other. And one of the reasons I wrote the article “Coming Clean Beyond the Fiscal Cliff” is, we’ve got to face this. We’ve got to look at that if we’re going to turn the red button green. In that sense we have all been complicit because we’ve been letting the leadership draw us in a more and more perverted and criminal way and as we’ve done it we’ve made the body politic weaker and weaker and weaker because we’re all spending our time doing things that are making us stupider instead of spending our time making things that make us healthier and stronger.”

Ms. Fitts posed those questions to the audience in the spiritual conference during the Summer of 2000, and it is my hope that in the Summer of 2013 (13 years later, and after 9/11) that there are more than just one in 100 “spiritually conscious” people that are not only willing to talk about how to “turn the red button green,” but are actively pursuing ways in which to do so.

Is it actually true that for our economy to prosper, we need to turn a blind eye to the illegal drug trade, we need to hook the neighbors’ kids on drugs? No way! It’s like saying we need to keep selling land mines otherwise our way of life and our economy will collapse, we need to sell more weapons. The truth is, selling land mines is extremely profitable for the manufacturer of land mines and those directly involved in land mine sales, but certainly not for the average Joe Public.

It is my hope that 13 years later, more and more people are acknowledging the lies, more and more people are realizing that the fears that were keeping them aligned to the old systems and the old ways of being are based on false assumptions, propaganda and downright lies.

And it’s not just the illegal drug industry that is full of lies, many other industries are as well: the pharmaceutical industry, the cancer industry, the defense industry, the energy industry, the processed food industry, among many, many others.

It is my assertion that “spirituality” is about becoming socially and spiritually aware, becoming conscious to the lies we bought into, and taking the steps necessary to fulfill our higher purpose. In fact, fulfilling our higher purpose is how we “turn the red button green.” Everything else is just fluff. (Find my latest article on fulfilling your higher purpose here.)

No matter what happens around you it is not the end of the world, it is just a transition and each one of us has a unique contribution to creating a world that works for everyone, a “Golden Age.” Getting that message out and sharing helpful real-life experiences and insights via my books and my blog has been my main focus for the last several years, and it seems to have made some difference. Thirteen years ago, when Ms. Fitts was speaking at that spiritual conference, the possibility of turning the red button green was not even in the conversation, not even on the radar, but now it is. And that is indeed progress.

In my blog posts I keep coming back to the importance of fulfilling one’s higher purpose (one’s soul mission and unique contribution) as a prerequisite for understanding the bigger picture of humanity’s journey on this planet. That’s because I keep coming across other blog posts and articles that imply that Disclosure and information about the extent of control the “powers that be” have had on this planet is the Bigger Picture. The belief is that recorded history and hidden documents and other hidden information accurately portray the Divine Plan / the Bigger Picture and spreading this knowledge is how we will finally transform our world. But this view is extremely short-sighted and couldn’t be further from the truth.

No amount of reading or absorbing of information, no matter how seemingly monumental or how revealing, will help you understand the bigger picture of your life (and consequently, the bigger picture of our collective journey here on this planet) if you personally do not apply what you’ve been reading and learning during this great shift in consciousness towards actually fulfilling your own higher purpose.

You do not fulfill your higher purpose or understand the bigger picture by having access to the vast assemblage of hidden or classified information about humanity’s history. You do not have to have special security clearance or spend years studying this information to know what the heck is going on. Viewing hours and hours of “re-education material” on the true history of the world on your television or computer screen will not finally help you understand the Divine Plan / Bigger Picture. Rather, you will discover what the heck is going on on a deeper, visceral, and experiential level when you’re well on your way to fulfilling your soul’s higher purpose.

So how do you discover your higher purpose? How do you learn what that is? I maintain that you do not know what your higher purpose is, and neither does anyone else know what your higher purpose is, no matter how psychic they are. Do you really think that you know what your higher purpose is?

Your ego mind (normal consciousness mind / socially conditioned mind / only-10%-of-the-brain accessing mind) does not know what your higher purpose is. How can it? Only your soul / higher self knows what your higher purpose is, and your conscious mind doesn’t have access to that, at least not all at once. Rather, the way it works is like this: you access your higher purpose one little teeny baby step at a time, by following through with your inner guidance and paying attention to what happens as a result. (Your higher self will not reveal your higher purpose if you’re not ready to follow through, if you haven’t cultivated a deeper relationship with the Divine such that you trust the guidance you’re receiving, which means following through with it promptly and consistently.) So what happens when you follow your guidance one time, what will you have then? You will have one little baby clue, one little insight.

When you have aligned your life with your deepest being and followed through with that guidance promptly and consistently for weeks and months on end, what happens is that the little clues, synchronicities and insights you have experienced begin to come together in such a way that you now have a better idea of what your higher purpose may be. You feel as though the puzzles pieces are coming together. You’re experiencing new insights almost daily. You have some amazing results and you feel “in tune” with your higher self. During this time, you also notice that some of your beliefs have changed and that your mind feels like it’s being “rewired.” In fact your mind has felt confused at times and sometimes you didn’t know how much more of this you could take but you chose to keep going anyway because it’s actually been exciting and you’ve been learning to trust your higher self and the Divine Plan. (And you’ve stopped looking to the night sky or other places for “proof” or motivation to go on.)

So how do I know this? It’s not because someone told me this or because it was channeled. It’s what I actually experienced when I made a commitment to reconnect to my higher self and follow through with my inner guidance and it’s what I came to understand over months and years of following my inner guidance. My book, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening, is an account of my experiences, many of which were recorded pretty much as they happened. In fact, I was asked by “higher beings” to keep track of things as they happened, so that my account of the reconnecting process would be more accurate than if I had written it months or years after the fact.

Understanding the bigger picture is not about adding more information to your repertoire; rather, when you are well on your way to fulfilling your higher purpose (which will be very exciting and rewarding for you and result in long-term happiness and satisfaction) you will finally understand the bigger picture on the deepest level. Then and only then will you be able to appreciate fully what the “powers that be” have done in service to you, to this planet, and indeed to the Universe. (And only then will the Golden Age come about.)

It’s not special information that has the power to transform our world. It’s you who have the power to transform your world, and this–when added to the millions of others who are also transforming their world–will result in the transformation of the world.

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.”

Are strange events happening in your life that you can’t quite explain? Can they be somehow related to the 2012 shift that many are talking about? My understanding is that the “tipping point” of this shift in consciousness is to occur on December 21, 2012 (according to the astronomy, anyway), even though all of us have been in different stages of the awakening process for a good number of years now.

The way I see it, there’s a purpose to these strange events. I believe that having strange things happen in your life that you cannot quite explain opens you up to searching for answers and to being more open to considering alternative viewpoints–viewpoints that are alternative to the mainstream doctrines that have been pushed on us by the media, government, religion, industry and society.

For example, I had something strange happen in my life back in 1988 that I still to this day cannot explain. I spoke to barely a handful of people about it, engineers and scientists mainly, just to make sure there was no gaping hole in my scientific understanding.

I didn’t get any definitive answers, but the strange happening had an impact on my life, in that it made me more open to searching for answers outside of conventional or known explanations. I wrote about what happened in my memoir, What Everyone Believed: A memoir of intuition and awakening, but will briefly describe it below.

In 1988 I was working in Munich, Germany in the Experimental Physics Department at the Ludwig Maximilian University. I had been hired as a materials engineer and my job was to work with a physics professor and his graduate students, analyzing ceramic superconductors using various materials analysis techniques.

My vacation that year consisted of a car trip to Turkey with my boyfriend (who later became my husband) and my sister, who was visiting from New York. At one of Turkey’s tourist attractions (that looked like the limestone terraces in Yellowstone National Park), something strange happened. We had just parked my boyfriend’s VW Bug in the parking lot and were walking to see the terraces when I realized I had forgotten my camera. I asked my boyfriend and my sister to go along without me, that I would catch up with them after I got my camera.

I got to the car, leaned my left arm over the passenger side headrest (the front passenger side is where I normally sat), and reached for the camera that was on the back seat. As I was reaching for the camera, the two stainless steel rods that attached the headrest to the passenger seat had bent back in parallel motion. In my “inner hearing” I heard them “click into place” at an angle of about 45 degrees from vertical.

What the hell? That wasn’t supposed to happen! I tried to return the headrest to its original position (vertical) but it wouldn’t bend. After trying to bend it back into place for a minute or two I ran over to tell my boyfriend that something strange had happened to his car, and the three of us rushed back to look.

I had half expected the headrest to be back in its original position, perhaps one chance in a million I had somehow imagined this event, but nooooo, it was still bent. (I didn’t do drugs, nothing like this had ever happened to me or anyone else before–that I knew about, anyway.) I was really puzzled.

My boyfriend, six foot three and athletic, tried to bend the rods back into place but no matter what he did, he couldn’t make them budge. And boy was he upset with me! We took it to an auto shop to have it fixed, the three of us standing around waiting for it at the shop like strangers at a train station. The people at the auto shop were able to bend it back, and the headrest was as good as new for the rest of the time my boyfriend owned the car.

A couple of days later, still in Turkey, I got sick with some kind of virus or some other strange thing that left me very weak for about 24 hours. Years later, while I was writing my memoir and pondering upon this and other strange events in my life, I “got” that supernatural forces were tampering with the relationships in my life. I wanted to know why…which helped further lead me down my path of discovery.

So…what is happening in your life that cannot be explained using conventional wisdom? If you’re willing, please share your experiences in the comment section of this blog. A couple of other strange things are happening in my life at the moment, that I might share in future postings.

I believe that strange events are happening more frequently on this planet in order to help us question our current reality…which supports us in making the shift in consciousness that will bring about a new age for humanity, one that works for everyone (particularly now that we’re so close to the December 21, 2012 tipping point). It is this shift in consciousness and inner shift that will be the foundation for the positive changes that we make, including the shift from living from survival (struggle, fear, societal and peer pressure) to living from Creation (trusting in the divine, connection with one’s higher self, one’s true self).

As we learn the truth about what 2012 is really about, we will be able to live more and more from creation and joy. And as we learn to align with and follow through with our inner guidance, we will be well on our way to creating a world that’s supported by the heavenly realms.

To learn more about the exact nature of the December 2012 alignment and the positive implications for humanity’s future (and how you can make a difference in your own life and help others at the same time), please click on the link below.

Thank you for reading!
