My last blog post of October 1st focused on how when you trust and follow through with your inner guidance, projects become easier to successfully complete. In that posting, I had also mentioned how my inner guidance had changed over the years, becoming less conspicuous and more subtle.

I understand why the guidance I receive now is more subtle. It’s because of over several years of recognizing, trusting and following through with my inner guidance in the moment (and the amazing and favorable synchronicities and new insights that occurred as a result) I no longer need “clear signs from the Universe” to point me in the right direction. I will explain in this article.

A decade ago, I was not clear on what “Ascension” or “spiritual evolution” was and I wasn’t very confident with recognizing (and following through with) my inner guidance and intuition. I had felt myself guided to begin my higher purpose at that time (and had received messages about my purpose from a lady who channeled the Counsel of Light), but I wasn’t clear on what steps to take. To make things more challenging, there was a lot of resistance in my family regarding that different path. Even though I had felt myself guided about 9 and a half years ago to move out of my house to a new place, I knew it would be a very difficult move and path, both for myself and for my family. If I were to go ahead with this plan, I knew I needed some real support, not just talk. So I talked to God: “If You, God, want me to begin my path and write my books, I will need some very clear signs about the steps I need to take. I need signs that I cannot misinterpret.” I wanted “signs from Heaven.”

The following example (an excerpt from my book, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening) is one of several signs I had received from the “Universe” at that time regarding moving. It was a sign that pointed me to move out of my house 9 years ago, and where:

Late one evening on July of 2003, my children and I had come home from a friend’s house. After I got my children off to bed I was exhausted, but as I passed my computer on my way to bed, my inner voice told me to turn it on and look at the rentals listed on Craigslist. (“Turn on your computer and look at the rentals on Craigslist,” is what my inner voice clearly said, as if I had “heard” the words spoken in my head.)

Do I have to right now? I thought to myself. I mean it can wait until morning, can’t it? I just wanted to go to sleep, not to power up my laptop, which took several minutes to boot. But as I had already mentioned, I was getting good at hearing my inner voice and following through immediately. Well, if I were in the shower and got a hunch to call someone, it would have to wait until I was done–you use your common sense with such things. But being tired didn’t count as an emergency or a major inconvenience. “Okay Christine, just do it, just so you could say you did.” (By this time I was talking to myself fairly regularly.)

I logged onto Craigslist and immediately found a new ad for a small house with a very reasonable rent only one and a half miles away. It seemed like the perfect place, and as I scrutinized the ad details, in that same moment I received an email from the owner of this same house, asking whether I was still in need of a rental. (I had placed a “rental wanted” ad on Craigslist earlier that day.)

My kids and I looked at the house later that week and when I expressed my interest to the Vietnamese landlady, she said, “You’re the first person we show this house to. It’s not in move-in condition yet, buy us clomid, but if you like it so much you can have it. I won’t show it to anyone else. I’ll tell them it’s taken.” I almost started crying as I had been looking for a reasonable place for months. We made an appointment to sign a month-to-month lease about 2 weeks later.”

When you’re not that confident in recognizing your inner guidance, you might want to ask the Universe for clear guidance that you cannot misinterpret–as I had done when I asked for “clear signs” about what to do. But after you’ve become confident in your ability to recognize and trust your inner guidance such that you follow through with it promptly and consistently, even when making difficult choices, a subtle hunch will do.

I wrote about the subtle, “flash of awareness” hunches I received in last week’s blog post–which was about my moving back to my old house with my family at the end of last month. You might want to say I am coming full circle here, just as we are coming full circle with regard to the 26,000 year cycle of the Precession of the Equinoxes.

So, anyway, here I am a decade later. I understand what spiritual evolution is and what Ascension is about. I know that each one of us has a similar path–in that we are here to learn and grow spiritually and to fulfill our higher purpose. It’s just that the details of that purpose will be unique for each individual. And I know I can help by sharing my experiences and story, even though the details of your experiences and your contribution to the “New Way” will be unique to you.

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).

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.)

A recent blog post on spiritual awakening symptoms claims that symptoms of spiritual awakening will intensify and accelerate this year as Ascension draws near and that humanity will continue to be thrown temporarily out of balance.

James Tyberonn states that the spiritual awakening symptoms predicted to increase this year include, “mood swings, dizziness, insomnia, anxiety, lethargy, apathy and fatigue.” Other spiritual teachers have their own lists of symptoms, which may include 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. (All this doesn’t sound like a lot of fun.)

James Tyberonn channels,

“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.

In other words, we will need to respond to and adjust to each event or challenge that comes up in our life. (This is how I feel about the state of my life right now: I am making an effort to respond to each challenge that comes up, despite the challenges showing up one right after the other.)

Archangel Metatron encourages,

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

I do agree that those symptoms actually catalyze our personal growth–because when you’re experiencing unpleasant symptoms, you are more motivated to take action and to follow your inner guidance. However, the symptoms will not pass by quickly all on their own. You absolutely will need to be proactive about each one of your symptoms.

Sometimes I see people on Facebook asking about their Ascension symptoms–e.g. “Should I do something about this ache and that pain or are they Ascension symptoms?” (As if one or the other condition were true, but not both.) But following your inner guidance and being proactive is the best way to deal with any of your awakening symptoms, be they spiritual or physical.

An example: You may find that your mysterious aches, pains and skin issues disappear when you eliminate gluten and dairy from your diet. A colleague of mine named Shasta Tierra (a licensed acupuncturist in San Jose, CA) is teaching Natural http://hesca.net/klonopin/ Health Makeover classes that have her clients totally eliminate gluten, dairy and GMO foods from their diet, for a period of 6 weeks. (GMO foods should be eliminated completely.)

People who have taken this class have had pains in their arms, swelling in their feet, skin irritations and back pains disappear within several days of following the healthy diet she recommends. One lady who could not sit for more than 45 minutes without experiencing excruciating back pain found herself sitting at work all morning without having to get up and stretch! But when she went back to her normal diet, her back pain came back in a couple of days! (Gluten and dairy cause inflammation in the body and GMOs damage the liver and kidneys–important organs of detoxification. And remember that what affects your body also affects your mind…)

We are not supposed to ignore these so-called Awakening Symptoms. Rather, when we take the steps to be proactive and follow our inner guidance with regard to our symptoms, that’s when we have our Awakenings!

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 the guidance that will actually place you squarely on the path of your awakening is.)
  2. Synchronicities that are meaningful to you. (These help point you in the right direction on your path or help spark an important new insight.)
  3. Intense inner contemplation including questioning and/or reexamining of beliefs and events, especially at 3 or 4 in the morning. (This is often triggered by happenings or 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. (Spirit works in interesting ways.)
  5. Having the same thing (especially something that’s unusual) happen to you 2 or 3 times in a relatively short period of time, like, say, 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 will 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 will wake up in the middle of the night, 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. It just shows that your higher self has a good sense of humor.)

Experiencing any (or all) of these signs means that you are deep into your spiritual awakening and ascension process.

Remember, the fast track to spiritual awakening does not depend on how much fame or fortune you possess, or on how many advanced degrees you have, buton whether you’re willing to (temporarily) forgo your comfort zones for the noble purpose of personal and spiritual growth.

Your individual growth is of utmost importance right now, and the signs and symptoms you experience aren’t just signs or symptoms. They are actually catalysts designed to assist you in your spiritual awakening process.

When you experience the Great Shift in Consciousness firsthand, part of what will shift in you is your perception of the battle between the Dark and the Light. You will begin to perceive it as more of a game. (And it’s at that point that “The Game” finally begins to change.) But before I discuss more of this Light vs. Dark Game, I need to bring up a post I read earlier this week on another blog.

The blogger gave an “energy summary report” for the first 3 months of 2012. Basically, she wrote that because lightworkers are taking positive steps forward, there’s lots more negativity that will be unleashed on them by “Team Dark” in the remaining months of 2012. Because it’s about the final battle for humanity and the Earth, there will be more attacks aimed specifically at lightworkers, she writes. The best way the “Team Dark” derails lightworkers from their purpose is to place obstacles in front of them in the form of negative people in their close environment. She then goes on to give an example of neighbors arguing outside her home into the night one night in the month of March. (I have also been saying that things will get worse before they get better–but for different reasons and using different terminology.)

I understand where she’s coming from because I used to think those things as well. I used to think that some people close to me were being unduly influenced by “Team Dark.” (What a frightening position to take on, and besides, it keeps the battle going!)

But then after dealing with those same people by following through with my higher self’s guidance rather than my normal approach (of avoidance, annoyance, even trying to justify myself using new age logic, whatever…), I had some truly amazing experiences that proved to me beyond a doubt that “Team Dark” is actually catalyzing for me the fastest way to my growth and expansion (i.e. Ascension and shift in consciousness.)

I remember the day this became so clear to me; it was a warm Spring day in 2004. I remember sitting down on the lawn of Morgan Hill High School after my older daughter’s swim meet (she was 9 yrs. old at the time) and crying. My capricious daughter and her equally unpredictable Dad had already left the meet, people were packing up and leaving the grounds and all I could do was just sit there and cry.

I will not share the event here because it will almost take a book to explain it. (How do you explain the depth of an epiphany, the emotions, the relationships, the before and after situation so that it makes a real impact for the reader…in a few paragraphs?) In fact, my first editor (a top-rate editor of spiritual books) crossed out the pages in my memoir where I wrote about this event because I don’t think it fit into her belief system. (Needless to say, I had no choice but to get myself new editors after that.)

Anyway, my epiphany showed me that the “difficult” people in my life were helping me fulfill my higher purpose by putting me through challenging situations that would teach me amazing things about truth, about unconditional love and about the deeper story of the Dark vs. the Light on this planet.

Furthermore, this event was doubly meaningful to me because a couple years earlier, I had been asked by the Counsel of Light to share what I would learn about how life on this planet really works and now with this epiphany, I had another significant and amazing thing to share, something original that was more than just a repeat of what’s currently available in the world! Anyway, that one event changed the way I viewed and interacted with the difficult people in my life forever. (Which allowed for more cooperation, more grace and ease, and more transformation.)

Growth and expansion (“ascension”) is possible when you ask your higher self for guidance regarding the challenging situation you’re in, muster up enough courage and confidence in the guidance to follow through with it promptly and consistently, and then notice the amazing things that happen and the insights you receive as a result of your following through. (My “how-to” eBook on 2012 helps activate this process in you quite quickly.)

I mean, you can even get to a point where you can have fun with this “dark” vs. “light” gig, you can begin to see it as sort of a game. And when you have learned how to play the game (“the game of duality,” as it’s sometimes called), you have become the master of your life.

At that point, The Game’s pretty much over…and it’s time for a new kind of Game. (One that fits into the Golden Age.)

Team Dark catalyzes events that we are meant to learn incredible things from. It’s much more empowering to view it this way than to see it as an unending battle. (Aside from the fact that it’s true that it’s a temporary situation we chose for our own personal growth.)

We’re wondering why nothing we want is happening around us…But this is the piece that’s missing in many people’s experiences. The faster we get this piece, the faster the Great Shift in Consciousness and the changes we all want will manifest.
