Waking Up: Becoming Aware & Informed

Waking Up: Becoming Aware & Informed

The profound Earth changes, astronomical events, astrological aspects, and the culmination of ancient prophecies, which all converged in 2012, contribute to a higher vibrating quantum field (divine matrix). As a result of this raised frequency, our consciousness and physical bodies are undergoing a transmutation process. We are shifting from duality to unity consciousness. For too long we have been disconnected from the soul, living our lives from a personality level.

The time has come to write a new story for our lives and to let go of those handed down to us by our families and our cultures. These are not our stories; they do not belong to us. We must hand them back with love and write our own. We are being urged to become aware and informed and, by doing so, to help to educate and prepare others for the transformation of human consciousness.

Both the Earth and humanity are ascending to a higher level of consciousness and evolving to a higher vibrational frequency. The process of ascension will serve to realign the personality with the soul. Ultimately, ascension is about the creation of Heaven on Earth.

Cutting Edge of Consciousness

Many of us are finding our way to the writings of inspirational new-world thinkers and those at the cutting edge of consciousness. These include Ervin Laszlo, Gregg Braden, Geoff Stray, Alberto Villoldo, Jose Argüelles, Terence McKenna, John Major Jenkins, Daniel Pinchbeck, Sharron Rose, Solara, Celia Fenn, Karen Bishop, Ronna Herman, David Wilcock, Drunvalo Melchizedek, as well as websites such as Worldshift 2012.org, Positive TV, and many other extraordinary sources that signpost the way ahead in these momentous years leading up to and beyond 2012. Such information helps us to understand why we feel the way we do and guides us in navigating our way through these times of great change and uncertainty.

Collectively, we are living in a time of confusion and anxiety and this is also being experienced at a personal level by many of us. Most of the changes we are experiencing as a result of a consciousness shift are difficult to view as positive or life-enhancing when we feel compelled to end relationships, relocate, leave our jobs, or totally transform our lives. Add to this the physical symptoms and experiences caused by an ascending consciousness and the impact of changing Earth frequencies, and the whole process can feel overwhelming!

Moving Backwards or Making Progress?

We may feel that as much as we try to transform our lives to become more peaceful, we often experience upheaval and feel that we are moving backward instead of making progress. This can be because our own frequency is shifting. By responding to this process at an unconscious or conscious level, we invite a period of turbulence as we readjust and realign.

Many of us are feeling tired, lethargic, depressed, confused, and frustrated. Often we find that our attempts to transform our lives appear blocked at every turn. This is a result of a process of realignment to the higher frequencies that now permeate our energetic as well as our physical bodies. In order to move through the tiredness and apathy and motivate ourselves, we must flow with these new higher vibrational energies.

Reawakening Our Passion for Life

Waking Up: Becoming Aware & InformedBy choosing to become informed and aware we can reawaken our passion for life and experience fulfillment. Enormous courage is required to alter our perceptions and embrace the resulting changes in our lives; however, the rewards are immeasurable.

Most of us have spent years merely existing, surviving, just getting by day to day, living uninspired lives in which our true selves are barely present. Imagine feeling alive, being in love with life, and knowing who you are and what you are here for. This is how we are all meant to live.

Stepping Out of Our Comfort Zones

Most people will avoid change because it usually requires a sacrifice or the need to let go. Change invites us to step out of our comfort zones, which may entail entering into a period of turmoil and upheaval. It may confront us with our deeper fears and a give a sense of going backward, not forward.

To use an analogy, the archer draws back the arrow to its furthest point of tension and then simply lets go. Pulling the arrow back to its maximum point of tension before releasing it enables it to fly the greatest possible distance. The more we experience upheaval and the bigger the step backward appears to be, the further ahead we will land once we are ready to let go completely and fly.

Believe in yourself. Trust you are being held and guided by the love of those in the heavens who walk with you. Have faith in your unique individuality. Embody a fundamental truth, which is that you have something important to offer. Adopt an attitude of gratitude for yourself.

The Treasure Chest of Your Soul

Trust and surrender are the keys that open the treasure chest of your soul. Believe in gnosis, that intuitive felt sense in which you know without knowing how you know. Memory, intellect, and academia do not inform gnosis. Gnosis is pure knowing informed only by the heart and soul; it is the highest form of human intelligence.

Gnosis engages our intuition, our sense of feeling and reveals our true wisdom. Information is power, gnosis is empowerment. Too much left brain activity with its emphasis on intellectual and academic information is not conducive for accessing the sixth sense of gnosis. Forget what you think and believe what you feel.

Your higher Self is urging you to let go and let God and to release all conditioning, belief in struggle, in suffering, and attachment to false security. Start to believe in the magnificence of who you truly are and what your life can offer to those around you and the world you live in.
