"inner light: divine guidance within to guide the soul"**
From SEDONA Journal of EMERGENCE June 2006 Issue
Greetings, dear ones. I am Kryon* of magnetic service. Yet again this meld takes place, does it not, between the Human Being and the higher self. The process you would call "melding with family" may sound a great deal like what you've heard for the past few hours [speaking of listening to Lee]—the Human Being in lecture mode. But it's not that way.
In these next moments, I invite you to feel the energy as a legion of what you would call angelic beings fill this place. They will "sit" upon you in a way that makes you know that this experience is real. For by intent, each one of you has invited this situation into your reality at this time. The multitude can sit upon your lap and surround you, can hug you, can hold you around the neck and the head, yet the person next to you who gives no intent whatsoever will feel nothing. Here is an interdimensional attribute: You can sit in the stadium with us or you can sit alone, and that is your free choice. Therefore, you might say that your intent is your reality creator, for many will "go somewhere" tonight with it, whereas others will remain static. There are so many at this moment who have come prepared, have come ready. Wouldn't you like to move to the next level? Wouldn't you like to know more about the divine master inside you? Wouldn't you like to know who you used to be, who you are and who you'll be when you're finished with this expression of humanism? All of that information is available. Did you know that? This is a precious place that is sweet beyond measure.
My partner makes fun and he makes a joke. He talks to the rug. He talks to the ceiling. [This is a reference to Lee telling the audience earlier about his dialogue with a new hotel room almost every other day. He talks to the elements in the rooms]. Well, I'll tell you, the elements in here are talking to you right now. All of the things that you think are static and without life force are part of the bigger picture. It may shock and surprise you to know that they are all in support of you. The trees that went into making the pieces and the parts of the wood here still have their interdimensional life force. The fibers, even those pieces of what you would call inanimate metal, have a life force. The air you breathe has interdimensional life within it, and all of these know the master who is inside you.
Many of you want proof of this, don't you? It's just too strange in your 3D reality to think that "things" can have awareness. How about proof that comes from an internal engine of discernment? Is your own validation of awareness and intuition proof enough, or do you need an outside authority? [Lee laughs, knowing there is no such thing as an authority on "thing awareness."] Why not ask your higher self? It knows all, and each of you have this. It's actually a spiritual part of you, but Humans love to think of it as a separate part. This helps to separate the 3D from the multiple D, something you almost have to do to maintain sanity in a 3D perception.
Reader, are you getting this? This is a safe place for you too while your eyes are on this page. Get used to it, for as you read this, we know what is happening and see you as you do it. You think you are just reading something that happened in the past? Think again. These words and the energy of them will last an eternity if those in charge of the legacy of
my partner's words wish it to be so.
Tonight some of you may ask for one thing yet will walk out with another. Do you believe in divine intuition? It's a guidance system that will help you to know how fast to go and which way to turn. It won't happen in advance, and you won't have the answer when you leave. It's going to happen when you least think it should, at the point when you need it the
most. Humans don't like that, but that's the Now of it. They would rather have advance information to "tuck into their pockets" and then use it when they need it. So think of it this way: We are giving you a package that is interdimensional. You the participant, you the reader, will walk out of here with more than you came with. But it won't manifest as a specific answer until you need it the most. Indeed, it's a bag of treasure, but you don't get to see it until you need it. A legion of angelic beings are here, and yes, they're all invisible. [Smiles.] How many reading and hearing this message would like to leave differently than they came in? Isn't that why you're here? I am Kryon. I am your sister, and I present myself when you leave this planet and arrive on the other side of the veil. I am there when you lean against the wind of birth and are placed into the birth canal. That's where I say goodbye to you. That's what I do. I'm well known to you, since I am related. If you read my words and you feel something within them that you recognize, it's because I am your brother. We know all about you. We sit in awe of you.
PERCEPTION OF PAST MASTERS
The masters of this planet all had something in common. Have you put this together yet? They walked this planet in divinity. They healed people when they touched them. They went from place to place and gatherings arose. They had miracles of matter manifestation. Some created things out of nothing. That's what masters do. Some continue to do that on this planet right now. They are alive now and not part of history, performing the same kinds of miracles. All that was, in the way of the energy of masterhood, is still here.
What do you do with the knowledge of these past and present masters, and how do you look at them? Ponder these things for a moment. All these masters seem to have a divine complement. The Human perception is that it is manifested divinity—from God, whatever that word means to you . . ."from God." God has touched them, and that allowed them
to have control over matter, over disease—seemingly control over life itself. What do you think of that? They are worshipped, and most of them in the past were killed. That's what Humans do when they have things they don't understand. They worship it or get rid of it or do both simultaneously. Even in the new energy, this fact is so.
So I ask you to ponder for a moment what it is that they had, for this pondering has created every religion on the planet! Humans often ponder their prophets. And if they don't have prophets, they ponder their gods, and the pondering creates the doctrines, and the doctrines create the religions. Every one of the many religions on this planet was
created through the pondering of the masters—what they said and what they did, what they taught.
There is an assumption that all divine things are separate from Human Beings. This assumption actually makes good sense, for it follows three-dimensional thinking. It's logical. You know how to separate the tangible from the intangible, and the things that are marvelous, unseen, invisible and miraculous belong to God. Things that are mundane and ordinary belong to you, the Human. And that's an old energy concept, if you know that or not, and it's a paradigm that's about to be shattered. What if those masters who walked this planet, who did grand things, were just like you?
"Oh no," you might say. "No, they weren't like me." Yes they were! Have you heard the term "made in His image"? They were just like you, and you're just like them. The only difference is that they had activated certain parts of their Human interdimensional DNA, the divine parts that made them seem supernatural to you. And as you viewed that, you called it "God."
Here is the truth: In the old energy of your past, when you had masters appear, their lives shined like a lighthouse in the dark. Everyone saw it, and everyone considered it unusual and godlike. There is now a new energy, which I'll go on to explain a little more about in a moment, that actually promotes mastery. It invites you to take the light and enhance
your own process, to the degree where you begin an ascension process that has your DNA vibration ascending to a level of master or near master. It's an energy that was actually present in the body of those whom you worship.
It's not here so that you might walk the Earth as prophets, as the old masters did. No, it's so you will walk the Earth as your own prophet, answerable only to your own mastery as you walk in the light and the love of God, able to heal yourself first and foremost and able to move from one place to another without being affected by other Humans or the drama of the moment. In a new-energy perspective, it's an attribute of divine power that I have been teaching you, and in an old-energy perspective, it's what the masters told you that you could do.
So the truth is that you are just like them, but you haven't got the internal knowledge of what to do next to activate the toolbox that will begin to change the interdimensional layers of your DNA. This is appropriate and falls into the category of free choice. But the age of illumination approaches and fulfills the circle of energy that the ancients saw in their calendars.
PERCEPTION OF GOOD AND EVIL
You have this odd perception of good and evil, for it's based in 3D and imprisons you into a concept of mythology that you feel is real. You think that things that are good belong to God and things that are evil belong to another entity, called Satan. Somehow, according to your beliefs, they are both supernatural, and they are after something you have, in a struggle of the ages.
In the middle of this dark-and-light struggle there is the bulk of humanity, and God and Satan are locked into some kind of a struggle to get your soul. Odd as it might sound in the overview of this dark and light, Humans are seen as worthless, born in sin, and will be discarded unless they somehow find a form of god known only by those who are in charge of the mythology. Oh, how convenient this all is! It explains so much. It excuses you from taking the responsibility, does it not, to create light or dark yourself? Supposedly you just sit there and wonder who is going to "get you." What if the darkest of the dark on this planet, the most evil you can imagine, the supernatural occult was Human-generated and sustained by Humans? No devil, no Satan, just you. Would that bother you?
What if the most divine thing on the planet, the brightest white, the lightest light, was also you, evolved and sustained? What if the most awesome healing power on the planet came from within instead of without? I will tell you that this is the way of it, and I have just explained the power of the Human Being to be whatever he or she wishes—free choice with supernatural abilities.
In a darker energy of the past, things that were of a lower vibration were easily sustained, easily developed. And now the light starts to turn on and burn them with truth. There are fewer opportunities for those things to be sustained and developed and far more opportunities for the masters to emerge and the light to be turned on. This puts the responsibility of good and evil into your lap. Which direction do you want the vibrations in you to go? Which kind of energy do you wish to have around your family and your workplace? You totally control how dark or light your soul energy will be. It's part of the test, you know? It's part of the free will.
Many have doubted that this could be so. They say, "If we are angels disguised as Humans, what possible system would allow us to create evil and go to the darkness? It simply doesn't make sense, Kryon. Angels can't do that." However, you totally ignore your mythology in the process, where an angel somehow magically falls from grace and becomes Lucifer, Satan, the lord of darkness. You see? The system is there even in your storytelling. The metaphors of your spiritual history gave you that, but you took it as reality instead of seeing it as your own potential. Does that give you a hint that you have the choice to choose to develop either side? You do! But the mastery in your DNA is suddenly awakening you to what is coming on the planet—a time of awakening and renaissance.
How are you going to do this? How are you going to create a change in your own DNA? We have told you over and over, there are no steps. It's an interdimensional puzzle. It has no answer. You want an empirical answer, and you desire the exact steps in a linear system. You want a clear generic answer, but it's different for every Human Being. Where are you in this chain of events? Some of you are ready, and some of you are just awakening. Some need time to think about it. Some are ready to jump in right now. You want to know more? "Kryon, at least tell us what to do first!" you say. We have, many times. You can read it and you can hear it. For eighteen years, as my partner says, the same message has been given over and over by this entity you call Kryon.
We'll never run out of ways of telling you about this; it's precious information: You start with intent, and the door opens. Then it starts to become difficult.
THE HISTORY OF PLANETARY CHANGE
We're going to tell you a little bit about some of the things that you're facing. But let me remind you of the esoteric history involved. You have the various stages that we have put you through since 1987. You have the 11:11 experience, which you really acknowledged in 1992. The 11:11 experience had to do with the decision to change history, to wipe away the prophecy, which you did. It was a decision that was made, by the way, not only by all of you, but by all of you who had ever lived on the planet or who would ever live on this planet. We're talking about a decision made at a level that is beyond Human understanding, by those who haven't even been "born" yet. This decision affects everything on the planet, including the Gaia energy. Don't you think you would have to include those who would be born into it? Indeed!
The 12:12 experience was the passing of the torch. We've told you this before. It is the significant expression that described those of you who passed the torch from the old to the new. It's significant because it was needed and necessary as a symbol of moving into a new dispensation. Now you see these numbers repeatedly: the nines, the elevens, the twelves. It is not a repeated coincidence that you see the 11:11 on your clocks. It is a wink from Spirit to remind you why you are here.
The Harmonic Convergence, the Harmonic Concordance, the Venus transit, all of these things were deliveries of energy. One year ago, the most magnificent one happened, and few even noticed. It's too esoteric and was unexpected by all but a few. On March 5, 2005, it happened. We told you about it too, and we'll tell you again, because you ought to know. It was called the paradise matrix. We described it as a time of revival when the masters who had said they were going to return to Earth did—not in body, not even in spirit, but as an energy delivered to the magnetic grid of your planet! And now perhaps you understand why I am the magnetic master! It took twelve years to prepare the magnetic grid. Now you know what we were preparing it for.
We gave you the dates eighteen years ago: when the magnetic changes would start, when they would stop, and now even your science shows that they did. Your compasses showed that the magnetics of the planet had changed oddly, mysteriously, in a way that had never before happened in your lifetime or your parents' lifetime or even your grandparents' lifetime. The movement of the grid was complete in 2002. And now you know why it was moved. In an esoteric way, but one that involves the interdimensional attributes of magnetics, we've prepared your planetary grid for the masters to come back, to begin creating the tool kit you will need to proceed. They are here, they all are back, and they sit here with you who are hearing and reading.
Why are they looking at you? Because they're talking to old souls who have come for a purpose. These are old souls who know they are here to become metaphoric lighthouses to a changing planet. They are the catalysts for you to use to start your DNA shift and develop this mastery in order to move forward, to create the energy called the New Jerusalem on this planet before 2012. "That's only six years away," you might say. But things are not always as they seem.
When the lighthouse strikes its light, it does not measure the storm. It does not judge the storm. It does not say to itself, "I must understand where this is all going!" before it shines the light. All it knows it that it was built to endure darkness, mighty wind and waves that crash endlessly over its structure. It's not afraid, either. It doesn't know when the storm will end, how powerful it will become or the reasoning behind its creation. All the lighthouse knows is that it's safe and that it must shine a light in the darkness to help others find the safety of the harbor. It never questions how it became light, but it knows who it is and what it's for. The light it carries is expected and those in the dark are looking for it. Do you see what I'm saying? You knew all this when you came in. Profound it is! Emotional for my partner it is! [Pauses.]
This [Human emotion] is because when I talk about this, I show him the potentials of the planet! I show him smiling faces in Iran and in Palestine. I show him laughter and joy in Israel. I show him things that you would think are impossible, created by individuals who sit here right now, and it makes Humans weep with the joy of potential.
THREE "IMPOSSIBLE" TASKS
How are you going to do it? I'll give you three impossible tasks. They're not really impossible, but they're going to be impossible within an old way of thinking. And you're not going to like them either, because they fly in the face of old Human nature. When
I start to tell you about them, you're going to say, "This is tough," and it is. You're going to realize that it requires you to drop the "old Human" as well as almost everything you have been taught from the beginning of your life and rebalance it.
I'll give you three examples of things that you're going to have to deal with in order to begin this journey. In each example, I ask you to compare it to the master of your choice, and you'll see that I'm right. They had to throw away Human nature to become the masters they became. They had to rebalance all they were given into a new paradigm of Humanism.
~ Number One ~
I invite you to get rid of survival instinct. Are you ready for that one? You come in with that built into every cell, don't you? It's imprinted upon you, isn't it? Indeed it is, but it's an old energy imprint. Survival instinct has a powerful message to each Human Being. It silently fills the Human mind with these thoughts: "I am alone. Everything
that I do, I must do myself. I've got to clear the path before me, because no one else is going to clear it for me. Therefore, I will survive by knocking over the ones in front or to the side or in back of me. I will compete for space on the planet. I have to in order to survive, otherwise I'll be overrun by others who know what I know. I'll compete for
relationships, for food, for money. I'll compete for love. I've got to do it. I've got to take care of myself because I must survive." Sounds like a song, doesn't it? [Smiles.]
What about this thought from the mind of the master: "I now understand and realize that I am not alone. I have divinity in my pocket for the asking. I have the power of the universe at my disposal. I have interdimensional tools that will clear the space in love, and everywhere my bubble is spread in light. Those around me will see better and in
free choice will steer a safe path into the harbor. They will survive with me and will be part of a family that I help create with my balanced light. I am the master lighthouse. Everywhere I go, I'll be blessed. I don't need survival instinct, because I represent ultimate survival. I am the definition of survival, a master of humanity. I am light."
How about that? This is the master's voice, but it's also yours. You begin to realize that you can trust in interdimensional forces, which are mastery forces that you don't understand but know are always there. You begin to realize that in the mastery department, you've got deep pockets when it comes to love. Ah yes, deep pockets when it comes to survival.
How about that? That's number one. Drop that survival instinct. It's an old energy that says, you have to compete for everything. You don't. There's plenty. But it's against your old Human nature, isn't it?
You've got deep pockets when it comes to energy and miracles. You could walk out of here differently than you came in. You can change before you put this text down! Is it part of your belief system or does that matter . . . or does it matter? How would you like to go out differently than you came in? How would you like to go out healed? And that, my friends, is the potential of this evening's experience, is it not? And that, my reading friend, is the potential of why you picked up this text, is it not? That is called free choice. How much can you put away of the old baggage you think is imbedded within you?
~ Number Two ~
This one will be even harder than number one for some of you. You're going to have to dispense with, then balance, your ego. Did you hear that? How can you balance something you get rid of first? I just gave you the answer: You've got to toss it away. By tossing away your ego, you gain balance. Because you think your ego is one thing, and it is not. I'll give you some exercises or examples of what it's like to have a balanced ego: Can you sit in a situation where somebody is calling you names and not feel it? Hmm? Even if that person is right? [Smiles.] Can you? Can you sit and take that kind of verbal abuse and not feel it? Can you smile in the joy of the moment while it's taking place? Can you be detached, watching the movie, as they say? Can you?
I'll give you something to do, an exercise. The next time this situation occurs, I want you to try to disengage. And when you are looking at the person abusing you, in his anger, in his unbalance, in his turmoil, I want you to love him. At this moment, he is the one who is out of balance, not you. His abuse of you is an invitation for you to join him in an "out-
ofbalance experience." [Laughter.] So sit there and endure his unbalance; don't join it. Then, when he's finished, if he's within touching distance, you might touch his arm gently and say, "I'm sorry you're having a bad day." [Laughter.] Can you do that? Do you know what happens when he doesn't get the reaction from you that the drama he's putting forward is supposed to create? He is completely and totally disarmed. And that, my friend, is when communication can happen. That's when the love of God is best seen. This can take place only with a person who has a balanced ego.
A balanced ego is an ego that is present only in respect to a Human who truly knows who she is. It's a piece of divinity and survival that nothing can touch. No other Human can touch you in death or in life and change your mind about anything if you have a divine countenance. No matter what words are presented to you, no matter what situations are given to you, no matter how loud she yells—she can't change a thing because of your mastery. Remember the four attributes of love that we taught you [from Kryon Book 5]? Your reaction will not be anger. It will be solution. As she is yelling, all you can
think of is how to solve the issue, not how to yell back or get even. A balanced ego says to you, "I know who I am. I'm a loving individual who can solve problems. I don't have to defend anything. I'm not in survival mode, and I am concerned about the one who is in trouble in front of me."
~ Number Three ~
Let me give you the third one: Get rid of your gender bias. You think that just because you have the parts of a certain gender, you've got to be a certain way, don't you? Well, it's pretty laughable, since there are those in this room who have female parts who came from a male warrior background. They are used to wearing the armor and they have slain large men in battle. And you know who you are reading this, don't you? It's a joke. All of you have been both genders. What you do with your current gender is your free choice. But you have a bias within it to release. Most of you say, "I am male," or "I am female," and this defines you. It's a giant bias, since you then act certain ways to conform to what is expected of you. Some of you even campaign for your gender against the other, again for survival and for what you think is a fair and just placement in your culture.
On this planet, for thousands of years, there has been an unequal balance between masculine and feminine conscious energy. It's been masculine-heavy, and you know this. The Venus transit energy of the past year was a tool that placed a potential balance into Gaia herself, to allow for those who wished to become more balanced in the masculine/feminine area. This would mean that men would be comfortable with a feminine side. They would see with a "sweeter countenance." Women would be more comfortable with the masculine side, looking at some things in a very different way. It's a balancing of the two, and when it sweeps your culture and the other cultures around you, it will start to create a better communication between the leaders of this planet.
We've said it before: There is a potential present for masculine, macho leaders of various countries to do dumb things just because they can. You will see their masculine bias, for it will drive their actions rather than the idea of balanced solutions being considered. It's part of a macho club that exists and has existed for centuries. Suddenly, however, these macho leaders are uncomfortable—more so than usual— and they don't know why. They are irritated, yet they don't know why; they are unhappy and illogical. And I'll tell you why: Because Gaia just shifted and there's more feminine energy than there ever was
before. And that will drive them crazy, for it doesn't work in the energy they are used to and wish to create! It affects their populations, their subordinates and also their plans.
Watch for it. There will be last-ditch, dying efforts to hold on to an energy of control, but they'll fail. This is part of something new on this planet, but something we have told you to expect. It's coming very slowly, but now you will see the reactions.
Can you personally balance this within yourselves? It's against Human nature, you know. Women want to be feminine, and men want to be masculine. What if you were both of these all the time, yet balanced in your thinking about the two? Think of the differences that occur in relationships. Disagreements would solve themselves far more easily if those
involved could see both sides and weigh them in their thoughts. Imagine what the leaders of the Earth would be able to do together if there was a more balanced process of thought. But it's not intuitive, it's not easy and it goes against the way you have been taught to think.
That's three, only three. We have presented three "impossible" things: Get rid of your survival mode, throw away the ego and pretend your gender doesn't matter. That's a good beginning to what masters do. Look at your favorite master, dead or alive, and you will see all three of these things within him or her. How do you begin? How do you create energies and emotions that are counterintuitive to your Humanism? The answer? You give intent for it and begin a slow process of working out the puzzle. But your DNA is there, ready to be activated. The tools are in place; the masters from the matrix are on the planet and they're ready to go. Therefore, there is far more energy available to work in your behalf than ever before. This is the real renaissance. The difference is that you now have so much internal help.
THE PLACE OF EMOTION IN THE DIVINE PLAN
There has been a question for some years about the actual purpose of Human emotion on the planet. I wish to set the record straight. There are those who would say, "Human emotion is a horrible weakness. It's too bad we have it; it gets in the way of logical thought. Kryon is too emotional and might sway your intellect." Think for a moment: Pure love exists in a grand form on the other side of the veil. You know this, since you can't experience the joy of enlightenment and the love of God without the emotion of it. You weep with joy when you think about birth, the joy of healing and even peace on Earth.
Therefore, if you wish to eliminate this, you are going to alter a divine attribute that has been passed to you through the veil when you were born! It's not something that is a weakness but instead one of the greatest powers you have.
When I come to you and I say, I honor and love humanity, I have in me a presence, a female presence of motherly love who says, "I am so proud of you!" Where did this come from? You think that's Human? It is not! It's divine and from Source. That is universal, divine love. Love has a place in your divine schedule, and so does compassion.
Here's the truth: There are certain kinds of Human emotions that are designed to change Gaia herself. Oh, if you want to spin with anger, drama and hate, you'll get one kind of reaction. If you want to create compassion and love, you'll get another. It is all given to you to use as a tool.
Human compassion, used through prayer and the sending of light, is perhaps the most powerful thing on the planet. It's why the tsunami happened—to generate compassion. It's part of the 9/11 scenario too. These things and others have developed a compassion wave that has actually changed Gaia in ways you could never have done unless those things had occurred. You might say, "Well, Kryon, why does it have to involve so much loss of life and so much sorrow?" That is your 3D reaction to these kinds of things. Again, we ask you to look at those whom you've lost in these years. The year 2005 was an amazing
year for catastrophe, yet all those who were lost, including those whom perhaps you had loved, are still here. They're working the Earth, perhaps in another way, but they are still here. Some of them have returned in Human form already, and some of them are staying as helpers. Who are you, in your limited dimension, to tell the universe that this is not the way it's done? This is your Human bias at its best. If you were to interview them right now, they would say, "We're fine. We are in joy. We did what we did and we're glad we did it." Life goes on forever; it never is terminated. It simply changes form in front of you,
but you can't see it, since you are in 3D.
Those you lose in death, who you are mourning for, needed to leave because they needed to work in other ways, in another area, in order to push this Earth toward peace. All you feel is your sorrow, yet I'm telling you that there is appropriateness in all things. I know who's here. Listen to me. Why don't you form a partnership with those you loved and lost and keep going? Encourage this understanding within your children. Tell them, "When I'm gone from the Earth, celebrate my life. Hold my interdimensional hand and keep going." Healing energy is here. Do you feel the tingle yet? Reader, do you actually think
this communication is just "words on a page"? Some of you have been touched tonight. Some of you will put down this text and be different than when you picked it up. And if that's you, then you know we had an appointment, didn't we? Is it emotional? I hope so, for this is the compassion that will heal you, create a peaceful countenance and help to heal the planet.
And so it is.
Who is Kryon
[from David Brown's site: http://www.kryon.org.za/wikryon.htm]
"Kryon is a consciousness that pervades all universes. Kryon is rather like a committee that has the ultimate understanding of what
happens on Planet Earth, and of what goes on everywhere else. He is everything within this solar system. However, not only in this
solar system, but also galaxies beyond.
Kryon is everything that is, and everything that is not. Kryon is God in a state of detachment from Mother Earth. Kryon is detached
from Mother Earth in order to see and to understand clearly what is happening here.
Planet Earth has been through a special experience is the last few thousand years: - the separation from God. Kryon is here to take
you on the journey home, and to connect you with your inner divinity, for you are all magical beings of this universe, magnificent
beyond your comprehension.
In prior channellings, a step-by-step way for emotional clearing has been explained. Being emotionally unbalanced is like driving a car
with a dirty windscreen, or sailing a ship whose anchor still holds fast at the bottom of the sea. Until you achieve emotional clarity,
your lives are going nowhere.
The Kryon energy comes to you in love and honesty, and brings specialist information and knowledge from all corners of the universe to assist you in the ascension process. There is not one entity or specialist group of knowledge and understanding that cannot be contacted through Kryon."
Symptoms of Ascension:
The advice given for many of the symptoms is also gathered from various sources (books on traditional spiritual practices as well as channeled information) and may not reflect my own personal experience. As with anything, use discernment: if it's useful, fine; if not, ignore it. One excellent book to read is What Is A Lightbody? Archangel Ariel channeled by Tashira Tachi-ren. Or Jack Kornfield's A Path with Heart. We all experience our spiritual development in our own unique way.
For some of us the changes occur slowly; for others a series of events can trigger sudden growth. We do not all share the same symptoms or changes.
And certainly we hold our individual spiritual beliefs. We are as different as snowflakes, yet we share a common essence and general shape. Some of this information may resonate for you. Other concepts may not be comfortable for you. Each of us must examine new information and discern for ourselves what is truth and what does not serve us.
So I ask you to do this for yourself as you read this list. You are responsible for your own interpretation. Peace and Love, Ellen firstname.lastname@example.org
SYMPTOMS OF SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
1. Changing sleep patterns: restlessness, hot feet, waking up two or three times a night. Feeling tired after you wake up and sleepy off and on during the day.
There is something called the Triad Sleep Pattern that occurs for many: you sleep for about 2-3 hours, wake up, go back to sleep for another couple of hours, wake again, and go back to sleep again. For others, the sleep requirements have changed. You can get by on less sleep.
Lately I have been experiencing huge waves of energy running into my body from the crown. It feels good, but it keeps me awake for a long time, and then subsides.
Advice: Get used to it. Make peace with it and don't worry about getting enough sleep (which often causes more insomnia). You will be able to make it through the day if you hold thoughts of getting just what you need. You can also request your Higher Power to give you a break now and then and give you a good, deep night's sleep.
If you can't go back to sleep right away, use the waking moments to meditate, read poetry, write in your journal or look at the moon. Your body will adjust to the new pattern.
2. Activity at the crown of the head: Tingling, itching, prickly, crawling sensations along the scalp and/or down the spine. A sense of energy vibrating on top of the head, as if energy is erupting from the head in a shower. Also the sensation of energy pouring in through the crown, described as "sprinkles".
This may also be experienced as pressure on the crown, as if someone is pushing his/her finger into the center of your head. As I mentioned in #1, I have been experiencing huge downloads of energy through the crown.
In the past, I have felt more generalized pressure, as if my head is in a gentle vise. One man related that his hair stood on end and his body was covered with goose bumps.
Advice: This is nothing to be alarmed about. What you are experiencing is an opening of the crown Chakras. The sensations mean that you are opening up to receive divine energy.
3. Sudden waves of emotion. Crying at the drop of a hat. Feeling suddenly angry or sad with little provocation. Or inexplicably depressed. Then very happy. Emotional roller coaster. There is often a pressure or sense of emotions congested in the heart chakra (the middle of the chest). This is not to be confused with the heart, which is located to the left of the heart Chakras.
Advice: Accept your feelings as they come up and let them go. Go directly to your heart chakra and feel the emotion. Expand it outward to your all your fields and breathe deeply from the belly all the way up to your upper chest. Just feel the feeling and let it evaporate on its own. Don't direct the emotions at anyone.
You are cleaning out your past. If you want some help with this, say out loud that you intend to release all these old issues and ask your Higher Power to help you. You can also ask Grace Elohim to help you release with ease and gentleness. Be grateful that your body is releasing these emotions and not holding onto them inside where they can do harm.
One source suggests that depression is linked to letting go of relationships to people, work, etc. that no longer match our frequencies and us. When we feel guilty about letting go of these relationships, depression helps us medicate that pain.
4. Old "stuff" seems to be coming up, as described above, and the people with whom you need to work it out (or their clones) appear in your life. Completion issues.
Or perhaps you need to work through issues of self-worth, abundance, creativity, addictions, etc. The resources or people you need to help you move through these issues start to appear.
Advice: Same as #3. Additionally, don't get too involved in analyzing these issues. Examining them too much will simply cycle you back through them over and over again at deeper and deeper levels. Get professional help if you need to and walk through it.
Do not try to avoid them or disassociate yourself from them. Embrace whatever comes up and thank it for helping you move ahead. Thank your Higher Power for giving you the opportunity to release these issues. Remember, you don't want these issues to stay stuck in your body.
5. Changes in weight. The weight gain in the US population is phenomenal. Other people may be losing weight.
We often gain weight because many fears we have suppressed are now coming up to the surface to be healed. We react by building up a defense. We also attempt to ground ourselves or provide bulk against increasing frequencies in our bodies.
Advice: Don't freak out, but just accept it as a symptom of where you are right now. You will release/gain the weight when all your fears have been integrated. Release your anxiety about this. Then you might find it easier to lose/gain the weight eventually. Exercise.
Before eating, try this: Sit at the table with an attractive place setting. Light a candle. Enjoy how the food looks. Place your dominant hand over your heart and bless the food. Tell your body that you are going to use the food to richly nourish it, but that you are not going to use the food to fulfill your emotional hungers.
Then pass your hand from left to right over the food and bless it. You may notice that the food feels warm to your hand even if the food is cold-- I like to think that the food is good for me when it feels warm and nourishing to my hand. I have also noticed that when I practice blessing the food, I don't eat as much. It is important not to let yourself off the hook when you forget to bless the food before you eat.
If I've forgotten and I've nearly finished eating, I bless the food anyway. That way I don't slip out of the habit. Another thing you can do is to stay present while eating -- don't watch TV or read. Heartily enjoy what blessings are before you.
6. Changes in eating habits: Strange cravings and odd food choices. Some find they are not as hungry as they used to be. Or hungrier.
Advice: Don't deny what your body tells you it needs. If you are not sure, you might try muscle testing before you chose a food to see if it's what your body wants. Also try blessing the food as described in #5.
7. Food intolerances, allergies you never had before: As you grow more spiritual, you are more sensitive to everything around you. Your body will tell you what it can no longer tolerate, as if it, too, is sloughing off what doesn't serve it anymore. You might be cleansing yourself of toxins. Some people find they often have a white residue in their mouth, much like that of runners at the end of a race.
Advice: An acupuncturist told me that this film can be removed by sloshing 2 tablespoons of cold-pressed olive oil in your mouth for 10-15 minutes (don't swallow, whatever you do), then spitting it out into the toilet -- not the sink, for you just removed toxins from your body and don't want them in the sink. Brush your teeth and do the same. Then clean your brush. (Sorry this is yucky, but it works.)
8. Amplification of the senses. Increased sensitivity.
8a. Sight: Blurry vision, shimmering objects, seeing glittery particles, auras around people, plants, animals, and objects. Some report seeing formerly opaque objects as transparent. When you close your eyes, you no longer see darkness, but redness. You may also see geometric shapes or brilliant colors and pictures when eyes are closed. Colors appear more vivid -- the sky might look teal or the grass an amazing green. Often I see grids running across the ground.
As you become more sensitive, you may see shapes or outlines in the air, especially when the room is almost dark. When your eyes are open or closed, you may see white shapes in your peripheral vision (these are your guides).
Advice: Your vision is changing in many ways -- you are experiencing new ways of seeing. Be patient. Whatever you do, do not be afraid. Hazy vision maybe relieved by yawning.
8b. Hearing: Increased or decreased hearing. I once thought I would have to pull off the road because of the painfully amplified sound of my tires on the freeway. Other symptoms are hearing white noise in the head, beeps, tones, music or electronic patterns. Some hear water rushing, bees buzzing, whooshing, roaring or ringing. Others have what is called audio dyslexia-- you can't always make out what people are saying, as if you can no longer translate your own language.
Some hear strange voices in their dreams, as if someone is hovering near them. You can either ask the presence(s) to leave or ask Archangel Michael to take care of the situation. Again, there is nothing to fear.
Advice: Surrender to it. Let it come through. Listen. Your ears are adjusting to new frequencies.
8c. Enhanced senses of smell, touch, and/or taste. I notice I can now smell and taste chemical additives in some foods in a rather unpleasant manner. Other food may taste absolutely wonderful. For some people, these enhancements are both delightful and distracting. You might even smell the fragrance of flowers now and then. Many of the mystics did. Enjoy it.
9. Skin eruptions: Rashes, bumps, acne, hives, and shingles. Anger produces outbreaks around the mouth and chin. I had dermatitis on my extremities for several months that accompanied healing an episode from my past. When I had worked through most of the issue, the condition was released.
Advice: You may be sloughing off toxins and bringing emotions to the surface. When there is an issue to be released and you are trying to repress it, your skin will express the issue for you until you process the emotions. Work through your "stuff".
10. Episodes of intense energy which make you want to leap out of bed and into action. Followed by periods of lethargy and fatigue. The fatigue usually follows great shifts. This is a time of integration, so give into it.
Advice: Roll with the nature of the energy. Don't fight it. Be gentle with yourself. Take naps if you are tired. Write your novel if you are too energized to sleep. Take advantage of the type of energy.
11. Changes in prayer or meditation. Not feeling the same sensations as before. Not having the same experience of being in contact with Spirit. Difficulty in focusing.
Advice: You may be in more instant and constant communion with Spirit now and the sensation may therefore be altered. You will adapt to this new feeling. You are actually thinking and acting in partnership with Spirit most of the time now. You may find your meditation periods shorter.
12. Power surges: All of a sudden you are heated from head to toe. It is a momentary sensation, but uncomfortable. In contrast, some people have felt inexplicably cold. I have experienced both. More recently I experience waves or currents of energy rolling through me. Sometimes the energy seems so intense when it first comes into my body that I feel a little nauseated.
But if I think of the energy as divine and let go of fear, I feel wonderful and enjoy the sensation. If you are an energy worker, you may have noticed that the heat running through your hands has increased tremendously. This is good. Advice: If you are uncomfortable, ask your Higher Power, that if it be for your best and highest good, to turn down/up the temperature a bit.
13. A range of physical manifestations: Headaches, backaches, neck pains, flu-like symptoms (this is called vibrational flu), digestive problems, muscular spasms or cramps, racing heartbeat, chest pains, changes in sexual desire, numbness or pain in the limbs, and involuntary vocalizations or bodily movements. Some of us have even had old conditions from childhood reappear briefly for healing.
Advice: Remember what I said about seeking medical help if you need it! If you have determined that this is not a medical condition, relax in the realization that it is only temporary.
14. Looking younger. Yippee! As you clear emotional issues and release limiting beliefs and heavy baggage from the past, you are actually lighter. Your frequency is higher. You love yourself and life more. You begin to resemble the perfect you that you really are.
15. Vivid dreams. Sometimes the dreams are so real that you wake up confused. You may even have lucid dreams in which you are in control. Many dreams may be mystical or carry messages for you. And in some dreams, you just know that you are not "dreaming" -- that what is happening is somehow real. Advice: You will remember what is important for you to remember. Don't force anything. Above all, stay out of fear.
16. Events that completely alter your life: death, divorce, change in job status, loss of home, illness, and/or other catastrophes -- sometimes several at once! Forces that cause you to slow down, simplify, change, re-examine who you are and what your life means to you. Forces that you cannot ignore. Forces that cause you release your attachments. Forces that awaken your sense of love and compassion for all.
17. A desire to break free from restrictive patterns, life-draining jobs consumptive lifestyles, and toxic people or situations. You feel a compelling need to "find yourself" and your life purpose -- now! You want to be creative and free to be who you really are. You might find yourself drawn to the arts and nature. You want to unclutter yourself from things and people that no longer serve you. Advice: Do it!
18. Emotional and mental confusion: A feeling that you need to get your life straightened out--it feels like a mess. But at the same time you feel chaotic and unable to focus. See #45.
Advice: Put your ear to your heart and your own discernment will follow.
19. Introspection, solitude and loss of interest in more extraverted activities: This stage has come as a surprise to many extraverts who formerly saw themselves as outgoing and involved. They say, "I don't know why, but I don't like to go out as much as before."
20. Creativity bursts: Receiving images, ideas, music, and other creative inspirations at an often overwhelming rate.
Advice: At least record these inspirations, for Spirit is speaking to you about how you might fulfill your purpose and contribute to the healing of the planet.
21. A perception that time is accelerating. It seems that way because you have had so many changes introduced into your life at an unprecedented rate. The number of changes seems to be growing.
Advice: Breaking your day up into appointments and time segments increases the sense of acceleration
You can slow time down by relaxing into the present moment and paying attention to what's at hand, not anticipating what's ahead. Slow down and tell yourself that you have plenty of time. Ask your Higher Power to help you. Keep your focus on the present. Try to flow from one activity to the next. Stay tuned to your inner guidance. You can also warp time by asking for it. Next time you feel rushed, say, "Time warp, please. I need some more time to -----." Then relax.
22. A sense of impendingness. There is a feeling that something is about to happen. This can create anxiety.
Advice: There is nothing to worry about. Things are definitely happening, but anxiety only creates more problems for you. All your thoughts -- positiveor negative-- are prayers. There is nothing to fear.
23. Impatience. You know better, but sometimes you can't help it. You want to get on with what seems to be coming your way. Uncertainty is not comfortable. Advice: Learn to live with the uncertainty, knowing that nothing comes to you until you are ready. Impatience is really a lack of trust, especially trust in your Higher Power. When you focus on the present, you will experience miracles -- yes, even in traffic.
24. A deep yearning for meaning, purpose, spiritual connection, and revelation. Perhaps an interest in the spiritual for the first time in your life. "Constant craving", as k.d. lang says. The material world cannot fulfill this longing. Advice: Follow your heart and the way will open up for you.
25. A feeling that you are somehow different. A disquieting sense that everything in your life feels new and altered, that you have left your old self behind. You have. You are much greater than you can possibly imagine. There is more to come.
26. "Teachers" appear everywhere with perfect timing to help you on your spiritual journey: people, books, movies, events, Mother Nature, etc. Teachers may appear to be negative or positive when you are trapped in polarity thinking, but, from a transcendent perspective, they are always perfect. Just what you need to learn from and move on. By the way, we never get more than we are ready to master. Each challenge presents us with an opportunity to show our mastery in passing through it.
27. You find a spiritual track that makes sense to you and "speaks to you" at the most profound levels. Suddenly you are gaining a perspective that you would never have considered before. You hunger to know more. You read, share with others, ask questions, and go inside to discover more about who you are and why you are here
28. You are moving through learning and personal issues at a rapid pace. You sense that you are "getting it" quite readily.
Advice: Keep remembering that things will come to you when they are ready to be healed. Not sooner. Deal with whatever comes up with courage and you will move through the issues rapidly.
29. Invisible presences. Here is the woo-woo stuff. Some people report feeling surrounded by beings at night or having the sensation of being touched or talked to. Often they will wake with a start. Some also feel their body orbed vibrate. The vibrations are caused by energetic changes after emotional clearing has taken place.
Advice: This is a sensitive topic, but you may feel better blessing your bed and space around it before you sleep. I rest assured that I am surrounded only by the most magnificent spiritual entities and am always safe in God's care. Sometimes, however, the fear gets to me, and I call in Archangel Michael and/or Archangel Uriel. I don't beat myself up for being afraid sometimes. I forgive myself for not always sovereign at 3:00 a.m.
30. Portents, visions, "illusions", numbers, and symbols: Seeing things that have spiritual importance for you. Noticing how numbers appear synchronistically in your awareness. Everything has a message if you take the time to look. I enjoy the experience of "getting the messages." What fun!
31. Increased integrity: You realize that it is time for you to seek and speak your truth. It suddenly seems important for you to become more authentic, more yourself. You may have to say "no" to people whom you have tried to please in the past. You may find it intolerable to stay in a marriage or job or place that doesn't support who you are. You may also find there is nowhere to hide, no secrets to keep anymore. Honesty becomes important in all your relationships.
Advice: Listen to your heart. If your guidance tells you not to do something, speak up and take action. Say "no". Likewise, you must also say "yes" to that which compels you. You must risk displeasing others without guilt in order to attain spiritual sovereignty.
32. Harmony with seasons and cycles: You are becoming more tuned to the seasons, the phases of the moon and natural cycles. More awareness of your place in the natural world. A stronger connection to the earth.
33. Electrical and mechanical malfunctions: When you are around, light bulbs flicker, the computer locks up, or the radio goes haywire. Advice: Call on your angels, guides, or Grace Elohim to fix it or put up a field of protection of light around the machine. Surround your car with bluelight. Laugh.
34. Increased synchronicity and many small miracles. Look for more of these.
Advice: Synchronistic events tell you if you are heading in the right direction or making the correct choices. Honor these clues and you cannot go astray. Spirit uses synchronicity to communicate to you. That's when you begin to experience daily miracles. See #30.
35. Increased intuitive abilities and altered states of consciousness: Thinking of someone and immediately hearing from them. More synchronicities. Having sudden insights about patterns or events from the past. Clairvoyance, out-of-body experiences, and other psychic phenomena. Intensified sensitivity and knowing. Awareness of one's essence and that of others. Channeling angelic and Christ-consciousness energies.
36. Communication with Spirit. Contact with angels, spirit guides, and other divine entities. Channeling. More and more people seem to be given this opportunity. Feeling inspiration and downloading information that takes form as writing, painting, ideas, communications, dance, etc.
37. A sense of Oneness with all. A direct experience of this Wholeness. Transcendent awareness. Being flooded with compassion and love for all life. Compassionate detachment or unconditional love for all is what lifts us up to higher levels of consciousness and joy.
38. Moments of joy and bliss. A deep abiding sense of peace and knowing that you are never alone.
39. Integration: You become emotionally, psychologically, physically, and spiritually stronger and clearer. You feel as if you are in alignment with your Higher Self.
40. Living your purpose: You know you are finally doing what you came to earth for. New skills and gifts are emerging, especially healing ones. Your life/work experiences are now converging and starting to make sense. You are finally going to use them all.
Advice: Listen to your heart. Your passion leads you to where you must go. Go within and ask your Higher Power, "What is it you would have me do?" Watch for synchronicities. Listen.
41. Feeling closer to animals and plants. To some people, animals now seem to be more "human" in their behavior. Wild animals are less afraid. Plants respond to your love and attention more than ever. Some may even have messages for you.
42. Seeing beings of other dimensions. The veil between dimensions is thinner, so it is not surprising. Just stay in your sovereignty. You are more powerful than you can ever imagine, so do not entertain fear. Ask your guides for help if you slip into fear.
43. Seeing a person's true form or seeing loved ones with a different face -- past life or parallel life.
44. Physically manifesting thoughts and desires more quickly and efficiently.
Advice: Monitor your thoughts. All thoughts are prayers. Be careful what you ask for.
45. Left -brain fogginess. Your psychic abilities, your intuitive knowing, your feeling and compassion, your ability to experience your body, your visioning, your expressiveness all emanate from the right brain. In order for this side of the brain to develop more fully, the left brain must shut down a little bit. Normally the left-hemisphere's capacity for order, organization, structure, linear sequencing, analysis, evaluation, precision, focus, problem-solving, and mathematics dominate our often less-valued right brain.
What results are memory lapses, placing words in the wrong sequence, inability or no desire to read for very long, inability to focus; forgetting what you are just about to say; impatience with linear forms of communication (audio or written formats); a feeling of spaciness, being scattered; losing interesting research or complex information; feeling bombarded with words and talk and information; and a reluctance to write. Sometimes you feel dull and have no interest in analysis, lively intellectual discussion, or investigation.
On the other hand, you might find yourself drawn to the sensate: videos, magazines with photos, beautiful artwork, movies, music, sculpting, painting, being with people, dancing, gardening, walking, and other kinesthetic forms of expression. You may search for spiritual content, even science fiction. Advice: You may discover that if you allow your heart and your right brain to lead you, the left will then be activated appropriately to support you. And someday we will be well balanced, using both hemispheres with mastery.
46. Dizziness. This occurs when you are ungrounded. Perhaps you have just cleared a big emotional issue and your body is adjusting to your "lighter" state. Advice: Ground yourself by eating protein. Sometimes "comfort food" feels right. Don't make any food right or wrong for you. Use your guidance to know what you need at any given moment. Take your shoes off and put your feet in the grass for a couple of minutes.
47. Falling, having accidents, breaking bones. Your body is not grounded or perhaps your life is out of balance. Or your body may be telling you to slow down, examine certain aspects of your life, or heal certain issues. There is always a message. When I recently broke my ankle, I understand that my ankle was taking on what I myself refused to deal with. And that was all of the above.
Advice: Stay grounded by taking your shoes off and putting your feet in the grass; even better, lie down on the grass without a blanket under you. Feel the earth beneath you. Get out in nature. Slow down and pay attention. Be mindful about what you are doing. Feel your feelings when they come up. Stay in the present. Surround yourself with blue light when you are feeling shaky.
48. Heart palpitations. A racing heart usually accompanies a heart opening. It only lasts for a few moments and means that the heart is re-balancing itself after an emotional release. I had one episode that terrified me: I woke up in the middle of the night, my heart pounding. I thought it was going to come right out of my chest. It only happened once and was, I understand, a huge heart-chakra opening. But I did check it out. There is nothing wrong with my heart.
Advice: Remember what I said about getting medical attention when needed. Consult your doctor about any conditions you are not comfortable with.
49. Faster hair and nail growth. More protein is being used in the body. Too bad we can't tell the body where to grow the hair and where not to grow it. (Or can we? Hmmm.)
50. A desire to find your soul mate or twin flame. More than ever before, the idea that we can have a relationship that matches who we are seems more desirable.
Advice: The truth is, we have to be the kind of person we want to attract. We have to love ourselves and where we are right now before we can attract a more "perfect" mate. The work begins at home. Here is how I think it works: Hold the desire for this person in your heart, but without attachment. Expect that someday you will meet someone who is more suited to you, but let go of any expectations as to who this will be and how it will happen. Focus instead on cleaning up your own life and being the kind of person you want to be. Be happy now. Enjoy your life. Then you may see.....
51. Memories surface. Body memories, suppressed memories, images of past lives and/or parallel lives. We are healing and integrating all our "selves", so expect to have some of these experiences.
Advice. Keep in mind that it is best to recall what only comes to mind, leave the rest alone, don't analyze everything to death (because you will be stuck in the tape loop of infinite issues to process), and feel your feelings as they come up. Ask for help from your guides.
