The path of spiritual awakening
might be a lonely one, maybe even
painful at times, but a powerful one nonetheless...
We might not know what
hit us and why, but we will definitely know when it reached us
because things will change overnight for some of us, for others the
changes might be a little more subtle at first but the "journey"
will take its course either way.
I have been on such a journey for almost three years and I am
writing this for all of you who might be experiencing similar
"weird" phenomena, but are unsure what to make of them, how to deal
with them, to try to explain them to others or maybe not as your
surroundings will definitely take notice and judgment of the "new
you" will happen...
It's human nature and it
always has been...
When you come to the
point where you don't even recognize yourself anymore
When you begin to
realize that there is a path for you even though it is still
unclear what it may be
When you start to
notice that some friendships just don't work anymore because the
energies suddenly collide, you certainly have made progress
When you get visions
of some of your past lives, maybe even people from these lives
coming in as someone else and you might even recognize them but
they don't recognize you and maybe never will, in this lifetime
at least, then you are well on your way to experience the art of
When you begin to hear about "soul contracts" and understand
what the four "Clairs" are,
- clear seeing
- clear hearing
clairsentience - clear feeling/sensing
claircognizance - clear knowing,
...then you are right
in the middle of it.
A word about "soul
we may have signed
many soul contracts with different people during various
lifetimes and we did it for a reason - to learn a lesson!
Some Shamanic approaches
consist of the assumption that it is possible and desirable to
change these contracts.
Maybe it is. For
myself, I have to say that I am not going to change any contract
as it has a specific purpose that is still valid in this
It's almost like
Whatever opinions people
might have in terms of soul contracts, there is no right
or wrong but merely freedom of choice which is exactly
what we all want and need.
And it's about respect
for each other - a must have we can never give up or compromise on.
As this is very personal and totally unique experience for every
single one of us it might be difficult to find people who can relate
to you and what you are going through or might be able to explain to
you what are some of these "weird" things are, but never give up
because you are not alone...!
Why can we suddenly
see auras, feel energy, have a high level of vibration that
might even cause an "overload" in your system because your body
is not used to it...?
Maybe some of you might
have experienced physical reactions like,
to some crystals, sound bowls, drums, meditation, uncontrollable
shaking, feeling sick etc.
For the longest time you
have no clue what causes these symptoms until one day you finally
find someone who knows because they have experienced the same thing
and have "mastered" this challenge to a certain degree.
Maybe some of you have discovered remote viewing of places they
have never been to. This gift of course is given to us for
healing and helping others.
Whatever practices we follow,
shadow work, space clearing,
land healing, energy clearing, balancing and so many more,
...is determined by who
Again, there is no
right or wrong approach, just choices.
We might try different
things in order to narrow down the path and also to connect with
Spirit and to find balance. I practice Shamanic traditions which
help me to connect to the elements, to ground and to find balance -
within myself and around me.
the Shamanic way and whatever we discover during the
"journey" is really what we have done all along, at least in some of
The "new" is really the
Grounding is very important and
at least for me not that easy to achieve. A work in progress but
at some point it will become a routine and you won't have to
remind yourself to ground or feel the consequences if you don't.
Maybe some of us have experienced physical changes where people
that you have known for a very long time don't even recognize
Some of us might have
seen bizarre lights, have heard distorted voices, developed
psychic abilities, become mediums - whatever it may be - know
that others might be experiencing similar things.
And the search and
experiences will be ongoing while people around you keep noticing
The old saying,
"people fear what
they don't understand" is true to this day...
We have to be able to
integrate ourselves in this society but at the same time stay true
to who we really are. If we can do this without being judged,
criticized or ridiculed we have already won.
Each of us can contribute in their own unique way.
For me I have discovered
that I like to be creative, participate in and offer meetups/circles
to reach out but also to create community for like-minded people.
Wherever we are on our path, we are not alone.
And even though some of
us might be solitary practitioners of whatever we choose to do,
we will still be supported by the community. This is especially true
The path will reveal
itself - eventually...!
