Awakened vs Asleep

51-Signs-That-Say-You-Are-Spiritually-Awakened.jpg

What does it mean to be consciously “awakened?” And how do you know if you’re “awake” or “asleep?”

It honestly means different things to different people because we all experience a different version of something that happens to change our perception of the world, ourselves and others.

There are a few key things that come to my mind to differentiate between an awakened, or awakening, person and one who is still “sleeping.”

Sleepers focus on the 3D “matrix” world problems and are usually concerned with things like local and national “news,” politics, politicians, patriotism, country, illegals and protecting their gun rights.

They are actually quite comfortable being “controlled” by the 3d matrix governments and people who pull the strings behind the scenes because it’s what they know and are used to.

They believe that their generations are better than any others and that the newest generations are weak and lazy. They hold on to their ways and speak down about others that they do not understand.

They blame parents for not “kicking enough ass,” when what they don’t realize is that there is a reason for the newest generations and that they are super important, just as good AND – will eventually save the world.

Unfortunately, they do believe and/or feel that a war is at hand – but they are confused, usually by the media, about who (or what) it is we are truly at war with.

When you awaken, all of those things usually fall away because something in your heart softens and something in your mind switches on.

Peace, love, compassion, understanding and concern for things like the environment and animals.

Suddenly you may become concerned with one time use plastics and the ocean and you feel a common link with all of humanity. You may even become compassionate and realize that all other people are humans, (teehee) too, and that we all deserve a life of safety, “freedom” and plenitude of good food and clean water.

You become hyper aware of what you’re putting in your body and you start craving less sugar and processed food and more of organic, natural food.

You start reconsidering your career path and also weighing the options of the people and places you surround yourself with and put yourself in because the “energy” of it all affects you.

Synchronicities become almost ridiculous. Almost as if they are just showing off.

You may feel a spike in your intuition and even feel “psychic” at times.

You may notice that you can see and/or feel other dimensions around you and you become like the ghost whisperer.

Dreams may become vivid, maybe lucid and sometimes super strange.

You may start to feel more spiritual and reconsider your concept of God and religion.

Maybe you get a massive alien vibe and realize how connected we are to the stars. Then you may stand outside and wait for your alien friends to come and get you… maybe that’s just me.

Please do not get this twisted though… awakened people have a purpose and so do the sleepers. Awakened people must still coordinate to the best of our ability with the 3D matrix and sleepers until something massive changes and either wakes them all up, or…?

If you start hearing things like, “the collective,” “the light,” “warrior,” “star seed” or anything pertaining to these words or subjects, you’re probably in the middle of your awakening.

And if you don’t, then you may be one of the people who are asleep and you will only awaken when you are darned good and ready!!

Are we changing the world by having an opinion?

If you could release your inner darkness and help heal the rest of your family and the world by simply letting go of hatred and judgement in the form of forcing your values on others and judging anyone for anything… and replacing all of that with love, compassion and understanding – would you?

No more time spent on politics, hate and rumor mongering, propaganda, name calling (i.e. millennials?), blaming, labeling, separating, walls, vaccines, abortions, guns or anything else meant to divide us. Because what good is all of that really doing? Are we changing the world by having an opinion? And forcing that opinion down others throats?

It is making us mean, hateful and hurtful. Period. That’s not how problems are solved. That’s how more problems are created.

When it comes time to vote, then vote. But until then, let’s make peace and stop pointing fingers and causing rifts where there doesn’t need to be any. And above all else; BE KIND.

If I told you, you absolutely could heal yourself and your family by doing this… would you?

Because you can. And what matters more than that?

Acceptance and the Great Divide

Humanity is going through it right now. There is a massive shift in consciousness and some are all too aware and others have no clue. But regardless, we must remain as “one.”

Right now, I, personally, feel a struggle from within to accept all humans and all behaviors and to get to a state of true acceptance and love.

For instance, I see grandparents and parents on social media condemning people who have abortions and calling them “murderers.” Then I see one of their family members who has had an abortion, for whatever reason, suffering at the hateful words of a loved one.

It is dividing us as humans and it saddens me to my very core. I struggle to understand how people can sit in judgment and ever condemn the actions of others when they don’t even recognize their own transgressions or the harm that they are causing others.

It is not for us to ever judge another human for any reason. We are only supposed to love and accept. Sadly, that’s probably the hardest concept for anyone to wrap their head around. Especially in this day and age.

It is great to have an opinion and choose to live your life a certain way. But when you impose that on others it only sets you up for judgement and hate. So all I can do is pray for peace and accepting times.

We were all given the gift of free will and must try to understand that others are free to exercise theirs as well.

We, ourselves, are the core root of any struggle and problem that we face. It’s time to start healing ourselves as individuals. Then and only then will we find peace.

When you are at peace with your transgressions – feel free to judge me for mine. But at that point – I don’t believe that you will.

Intent

I was told a story by a Navajo woman who I met at a roadside jewelry stand about a holy man making dream catchers.

She said this man spent most of his days weaving them and also giving counsel to others because he was very wise and possessed much knowledge.

One day, however, he woke in a terrible mood. He decided to ignore his rotten disposition and continued weaving the catchers anyways.

Later in the day one of his people came by to ask for guidance in a situation. The man quickly noticed how irritated and short the holy man was with him and knew that it had nothing to do with him.

After the holy man spoke the man asked if everything was ok. He admitted to waking up in a foul mood and not being able to shake it off throughout the entire day.

The man asked the holy man how many dream catchers he had weaved that day and he said “Many.” The man said to the holy man, “Well that’s a shame, isn’t it?”

The holy man knew at that moment what needed to be done. He knew he would have to take the time to undo every single dream catcher that he had spent hours making that day and leave them for a day when he felt better.

The moral of the story is that you put your intent into everything that you do. The holy man recognized this and knew that he could not, with good conscience, send out these dream catchers that he had made while he was angry. He knew that it would take away the magic and the goodness from them and that he should wait until he could make them with pure, good intent instead.

So I ask myself, what kind of intent do I carry with me today?

Don’t allow negative things to take away your inner peace.

peace-love-and-happiness_a-g-10456004-0

On my homefront there were 3 active shooters at a local mall who shot 2 people and scared the hell out of everyone else in the vicinity.

This makes people anxious to go out in public, and makes them afraid for the safety of themselves and their loved ones. Here’s where your inner peace comes in handy.

If you allow yourself in your mind to go to those scary places that cause you fear and you come up with a game plan of what your reaction might be – you can relieve yourself of some of the fear by being mentally prepared in your mind.

I’m not saying to dwell on it – quite the opposite. What I mean is – allow your brain to go to the scary place. Visualize what your plan of action to the situation may be… and then store it away for a day that will probably never come. But if it does – at least you are mentally prepared to deal with it.

Death is a part of life and some people die so tragically that our brains do not want to go there. Unfortunately that only causes more anxiety and stress.

See a therapist if you feel it would help for them to walk you through this, but otherwise – don’t allow the situation to rob you of your inner peace and living your life.

Me, personally, if someone pulls a gun on me and I don’t think I can safely run away – my plan is to get down on my knees and pray. Pray for the shooter, myself and my family. That’s my plan. I have come to my own personal peace with this and it has honestly helped take fear out of most situations.

That and the fact that I’m trying to live my life in a way that I clear my conscience every day and try not to wrack up any more things I might regret in my last breaths.

You can apply this to any situation that scares you or gives you anxiety.

Inner peace is important. It helps with not only your own life but with the balance of the world. Don’t let negative things rob you of that.

Part of the Collective

My subconscious “woke up” last year and some things are massively more significant to me now that I’m “plugged in” to the collective of souls. It’s incredible how information has been seemingly “downloaded” to me. For instance – magnets are now significant – and I don’t completely understand why.

Colors and numbers are also extremely significant now. I love seeing 11:11 and even 3:33. People’s auras are incredibly visible to me and I can also see and feel energies around them of what I believe to be people that are no longer there.

Streets that I grew up on and that I live on now seem more significant and I’ve only recently noticed. Right now I live on Temple drive which is hugely significant as to where I’m at with my spirituality. I’ve lived on 100 east several times. I lived on 5th Ave and M street (the number 5 and letter M being highly significant to me now) at a turning point in my life as well as Carr Fork Road when my life took its most interesting turn. I’ve lived on Borax and Brass drive when I was put through the ringer and the basis of my life was being forged.

I started using things like baking soda rubbing alcohol, dawn dish soap and lemon to clean and fix everything when prior I would have just used chemical cleaning agents and not thought twice.

I started drinking tea daily when I’ve never drank tea in my life. I started praying and meditating and saying names of lost loved ones out loud to acknowledge their presence around me.

I have incorporated spices like turmeric, ginger, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and things like lemon and honey into my every day life and for almost every remedy.

I use words like “manifestations”, “energy” and “benevolent” when I never used to.

I’ve had out of body experiences where I believe I was with others as they crossed over. I knew the details of their deaths at the moment it happened without any way of me knowing it was happening.

Death has taken on a whole new meaning for me and there is no fear of it anymore. I see it as a next chapter and something that I think will be depicted differently and as a part of life – in the future.

I have forethought about things that happen in the world such as earthquakes and fires and I feel emotions and feelings that are not seemingly my own.

I started caring about the planet on a level that I never have before and things like plastic water bottles became an issue in my mind that I can no longer contribute to.

I’ve known things about people without them telling me out loud and I have massive intuition and premonition.

I’ve been able to see a different perspective on things that used to be very clear cut or black and white. I absolutely disagree with war and killing for any reason and have a new found compassion and respect for all of humanity as well as creatures of the earth. I feel a deep connection that I never realized before.

Politics and government make me very uneasy but I can see a way brighter future coming sooner than you think.

I can see that the generations to come will rebuild politics and they will use compassion to solve the world’s problems and also heal the earth. They will completely redesign every facet of their lives to be better in tuned with their creator, with each other and with the earth.

I’ve been able to kick old habits that no longer served me as well as get my personal life into better balance than it’s ever been before. I am beyond grateful for being here at this time and for everything in my life – even the hard times.

I see social media as a blessing and a curse and I am aware that “control” is a factor in all of technology.

I have been able to let go of fear. Monsters, demons and the darkness lost their ability to scare and control me when I realized that I am more powerful than they are and that if I live and vibrate at a higher energy level than they can’t get near me. So now here I sit in the dark no longer afraid – because I realizedĀ  – that I AM the light.

All of these things have come into my mind within the last year and I see that they have come to so many other people as well and I just don’t believe in coincidences anymore. But I do believe in synchronicity and my life is abundant in that, and so many other things.

A lot has changed. Everything has changed. And I thank God for that every single day.

Imaginary Lines

It’s bad enough that we, as in humanity, have drawn imaginary lines that separate and label us and that they are used to pass judgement, create stereotypes and even start wars – but in this day and age to even consider putting up actual walls to separate us even further – seems like regression.

Is this the kind of world that god intended? That’s what I find myself asking myself. And if not, maybe we should consider getting closer to that idea as opposed to getting further and further away from it.

It’s not compassionate nor humanitarian to group all people from one region into one or even two specific types. There are good, bad and indifferent everywhere you go and it’s probably roughly the same percentage rate across the board.

I’m not sure why all the scare tactics and propaganda are necessary right now but I would assume it’s to either lead us into a war or to divert our attention from what’s really going on in the world.

Either way it makes my heart hurt. Things that are meant to divide us are doing just that. Creating sides and opposition and fighting. And for what, honestly?

I see how widespread panic has been initiated and I see where people are buying in to the “We’re the greatest and we must protect our freedom” stuff that is going around… but what are you really afraid of and who do we need to be better than?

They say ‘veterans over refugees’ and where the hell did that come from? I would wager that if we build a wall… all of the veterans won’t magically be taken care of in every way. As a matter of fact – with the government shut down over the matter, our country is already suffering losses on our own soil.

There’s a better way to handle “border security” without walls. Handle it like when the immigrants first came to this country to settle it. I understand that it looks scary to see a large group of people headed towards the country wanting refuge and you may see criminals – but I see mothers and fathers willing to travel the world over to try and make a better life for their children.

It has been presented that everyone in Mexico that wants to come here is a sex trafficking drug lord. Is that what people are honestly choosing to believe?? There are bad people everywhere. But most people wanting to come here are willing to work for their pay. They are not looking for handouts.

I feel people’s attention is being diverted from the real problems of the world. We should start a go fund me for global warming (which is NOT a “hoax” and IS relevant) and start being concerned over the resources of the WORLD and stop acting elitist and better than everyone, because we aren’t doing anything better than anyone, plus that’s not even what matters for our survival.

We’re all humans and I believe that compassion and caring is the key to our future. Not borders and walls.

Plus, the main threat to ourselves – is truly ourselves, not anyone else.

“Borders Are Imaginary Lines, People Are Flesh and Bone”

Mixed Messages

compassion-dana-kern

How can we say “Don’t be a bully” and “Don’t be a sissy” in the same breathe?

I hear stories on the news and Facebook – of bullying. I see parents reacting by saying things like “I’d kick that bully kids ass”… umm… ? I’m so confused.

Am I the only one who thinks we are sending our children and everyone else mixed messages?

Suicide and drug overdoses are at an all time high and we are still ok with thinking offensive things are funny and sharing things that encourage hate and violence and yet I don’t think some people even realize that they are doing it.

Either we are accepting of the fact that it’s ok to be different, have emotions and feelings and to reach out and ask for help if we are struggling… or we aren’t.

I just saw a post that was a complaint form, like one you would turn in if you worked for a large company but I believe it was for the Army. It’s one thing to be willingly going into the military and expecting drill sergeant mentality, belittling and degrading and it’s another to just be trying to get through day to day life when you’re suffering.

What I gathered from this post was that it was for someone who was complaining because they have “hurt feelings”. Obviously poking fun and belittling anyone who has an issue and has the nerve to say something about it.

In this day and age of #metoo and all of the depressed youth considering suicide as a better option than speaking out when they have “hurt feelings” it wouldn’t surprise me as to why they wouldn’t want to speak up and speak out.

I was saddened by the post and what it insinuated. But of course I was. I am different than I used to be… my whole life I have made fun of everything and everyone and I honestly now feel terrible about it.

I’m not offended by the post, please take note at the difference. People can say what they want. I was SADDENED at how conflicting these things that people say and share are from what they claim they actually stand for.

People reacted by sharing this post and putting the “thumbs up” and “laughing face” emoji. I just wonder if these are the same people claiming to care about stopping bullying and then suggesting we “kick asses” when one kid bullies another. I’m not sure how that is the answer…

I do feel that there is actually a solution. Raise your children to be compassionate, caring, respectful humans with no need to be offensive or cruel to other humans. Show them by being kind and understanding yourself.

I, for one, have made up my mind to change my mind about feelings and my reaction to when people have them. Especially children. Mixed messages are not helping, in my opinion. Maybe you disagree and think the heartless, demoralizing drill sergeant method – where you refer to everyone as sissys and make fun of people for having feelings is the way to go. I just feel like it is that type of kid who ends up on the news for bullying all of the other kids.
