What is Happening to Me? Awakening Symptoms

for my lil fuego, you inspired this share… 

I have spoken to so many about this, that I felt guided to share a private journal entry to offer a view point of what happens to some of us who are experiencing awakening symptoms

Journal Entry Jan 2013

I feel activated… 

I’m feeling sensations in different parts of my body.  My skin is tingly.  For the past two weeks, it has been mostly my feet and hands. Today for some reason, I am feeling certain vibrations so strongly that my body can’t almost handle it.  I have been feeling nauseous, been experiencing dizzy spells, and running for foods that are grounding. 

Even the vibration of human voices is penetrating my being so deeply… I realized this when a gentleman at one of my favorite coffee shops in Brooklyn sat down next to me.  He had a very bassy voice and when he spoke, I felt the vibration of his voice on my lower back.   This is also happening to me with music.  Certain sounds in a song seem to pierce through me today.

hmmm  How does this feel? Oh boy… it feels intense.  Not very pretty. 

It also feels necessary.

I’ve experienced something similar when I had peak Spiritual Awakening experience in the Summer of 2010.  I felt like I had been birthed into a new world and it took a while for me to adjust to feeling vibrations on a heightened level.  Today, it seems clear to me that I am experiencing more of this.  

Forgive me in advance if I shy away from talking or socializing.  I need to allow these energies to integrate.

Love you gaias!

There is Wildness to Consider…

Synchronicities, Manifestions, and Dream TIME…

The veils feel so thin…
I find myself in a dream like state
is this heaven
am I dead
or am I being reborn
Again
An ever evolving spiral
realities blending in…
what’s real
what’s an illusion
it is manifestation time
minding my thoughts
have to mind my thoughts
need to choose words that elevate
want to purge the ones that destroy
also have to accept that
I am
in this 3D body
there are raw emotions to deal with
there is wildness to consider
there is sensuality to liberate
fully

“Censorship is saying: ‘I’m the one who says the last sentence. Whatever you say, the conclusion is mine.’ But the internet is like a tree that is growing. The people will always have the last word – even if someone has a very weak, quiet voice. Such power will collapse because of a whisper.” ~Ai Weiwei

I am goddess poem

I am goddess

I am
I know this now

for many years I doubted myself
I spoke naively
I slouched my shoulders
and bowed to authority

I listened with obedience
and followed all the rules

but I wasn’t happy
I didn’t feel like me

I didn’t feel love pulsing through me

I felt fake
I felt mechanical
I felt like I was dying inside

because everywhere I looked
someone wanted something else for me
someone wanted me to speak a certain way,
look a certain way, dress a certain way, be a certain way…
and this felt like prison to me

and then one day
I WOKE UP

and then one day
I SPOKE UP

and then one day
I SCREAMED

I am a goddess and I deserve to feel good!
I am a goddess and I deserve to feel good!
I am a goddess and I deserve to feel good!

And so I started proclaiming
what god has always said I am

I am that, I am
I am I am I am

I am the daughter of a king and queen
I am my own authority

I am my own sovereign being
I am the guardian of my temple
I am my own thoughts
I am my own journey

I deserve to be happy
I deserve to create what is best for me

And so I gave myself permission…

I walked away from familiar comforts
and left most material possessions behind

I journeyed thru the desert
and got lost in my personal hell
or what’s also referred to as…
“the dark night of the soul”

I started to face myself
And slowly found the courage to really see…
the woman I had become which was a mistress of many masks

and I didn’t want to be that anymore

So I envisioned…

the woman I wanted to be

and since then I have been releasing
and facing my darkest darkness
and realizing that this unpretty journey
is an invitation to divine connection

it is the journey of awakening
it is the journey of remembering
what I was
and what I have always been

a goddess

I am that, I am…

I am my own supply and demand
I am the creator of me

I am the creator of what I see
I am the creator of what I get
I am the creator of how I live

I am the creator of what I desire

I attract it with my thoughts
I create it with my words

I am that, I am
I am that, I am
I am that, I am

I am I am I am

I am beauty

So often we go on autopilot…

29 Days of Gratitude Love Recommendation:

“Enjoy ceremony with yourself today.
Create a time each day where you honor your body with some nurturing.” ~ La Shamanessa

So often we go on autopilot and forget we even have a body…
we forget our bodies aren’t robots…

Your own company
This is an everyday challenge for someone like me because as an Aires Puerto Rican Brooklyn Born Woman, I am naturally expressive and passionate and firey and fast. I’m always thinking about the next thing. And being truly in the moment is a challenge because I always find myself living many moments at once.

TOO many times my overthinking has led me to neglect the needs of my body…
and there were signs…
she was getting headaches, couldn’t sleep, felt anxiety, couldn’t stand still, couldn’t focus on the moment, constipated, walking around in a contracted state…
my body was SCREAMING

and I still wasn’t convinced I needed to pause or rest or just stop… hmmm
“It’s just stress.” I thought…

Until the night came where my body was feeling so weak in a way I had never felt before…

That evening everything felt quiet in a way quiet feels when you know death is near. I’ve lost many relatives in my day and death is something I am well aquainted with. I felt I had hours to live. My body felt so still. Surrendered. And at that moment nothing was more important than listening to my body, being with her, and being gentle with her.

I called no one that night. I wrote a letter to a loved one (just in case)… I lit some candles, took a slow long shower and went to sleep in appreciation for every moment that was being offered to me.  I remember holding my chest a lot that night.

I was breathing gently, moving gently, observing everything that was around me and loving it as it was… with no judgement, no could woulda shoulda… just the “isness of the moment” as my beloved says.

As I put myself to sleep that night, I remember saying to God… “Thank you for this rich exciting life… I am grateful for everything and everyone I have shared time with. Thank you for every moment and every breath.”

And then I drifted into sleep land peacefully…
And the next day, I WOKE UP…

Yes!!!

Nothing like facing the idea or actuality of death to get a WAKE UP call.

In a society where so many things are happening at once, where everything is moving faster, it is more important than ever to create small rituals in your day where you PAUSE.

Pausing allows you to receive BREATH, provides the vehicle for inspired thought to enter, helps your body relax, eases tension, and so much more.
