For a few years now my Divine brother and sister bloggers on WordPress have been writing about our own true Awakening and Ascension experiences. We blog not only to record our own experience that helps us put our feelings and life into perspective, but to inspire and support each other through this great shift of consciousness and change on Earth.
A journey of the Human, awakening to the truth of our identity and story and remember who we truly are. Supporting each other as we choose a new focus and pursuit… creating a new story, one of unity and harmony that blossoms and unfolds from within. Allowing ourselves to embrace all darkness and release everything that no longer serves, integrating All that we are, for better or worse and be the Sovereign Oneness… ready to embark on a new experience of love, joy and peace.
Over the years we have created a series of 3 e-books for you to enjoy reading our True Awakening & Ascension Stories that we know will inspire and support you during your own Awakening Journey that is happening now. A journey you forge, away from the game of duality… on a new path… creating NewEarth from within… a life of joyful celebration and self-governance. A journey of awareness… from fear to love.
Today IAM publishing again, Maren’s Awakening story for you to enjoy reading, and below this you’ll find our 3 e-books to download and be able to read more inspiring true stories at your leisure.
Maren’s Awakening Story…
“A frog dreamed of becoming a king and became one”
Sharing a story of awakening is an interesting thing to contemplate. Once we truly remember what we once did not know, I have found it a challenge to recall the nuances of the not knowing. For me it is like continually just catching on to a remembrance at the edges of the whisps of a dream. Upon opening the eyes and awakening in the morning, the dream fades. I think that forgetting the fine details can be a good thing. Not dwelling too much on where we have been frees up bandwidth for attention focused on what the future is bringing to our front doors now.
However, in thinking about what I would like to share, I recalled an art installation I saw last year. This was the announcement for what was to be found within outside on the museum window: We tell ourselves stories in order to live…
The story of Maren‘s awakening is not really all that important or worth sharing… that is unless it can tell you something about your own. So here we go.
Awakening within the story of M is not really about events that have occurred, but rather is unfolded within a pattern of evolving thought that assigns meaning to the events. Looking at awakening this way means it takes place within what I am thinking and how this makes me feel. And for me, my thought and feeling evolve over time due to a natural propensity I have for continuously questioning myself and the world around me.
As I question, this then gives awakening into the unknown being known more room to bump up against the experience of actually living. I am living the life called M, but in a loosely held together space. Oh the joys this brings testing out BEING who and what we actually are and are not!
‘Often without knowing it, we are waiting for a new idea to come in and set us free from our entanglement… When the idea is true, the space is ready for it, the idea overtakes everything…. With grace like swiftness, it ascends and claims recognition… It cannot be returned or reversed… It becomes the mother of a whole sequence of new feeling, thinking and action… A PERSON CAN DWELL INSIDE A THOUGHT’ John ODonohue
We all have amazing experiences with intricate details making up the story of our
lives. However for me, it is our thoughts of meaning assigned to what has, is and will happen that create our true awakeningS. This thinking about what has, is, CAN and will happen is the beginning connection point for sharing true awakening on the planet. It is in our ideas about the happenings that we have the beginning potentials to trap us sound asleep and also to awaken us setting us free.
Boiling down the ideas and thought from the first 30 years of my life, I think it pretty much can be summed up with this sentence:
Maren did all the “right” things for mostly the “wrong” reasons.
There is a laundry list of externalized success defined and determined by western education in consumer culture and Judeo-Christian values within which I checked off most all the boxes on. This left M at age 25 as a MSW magna cum laude, building her therapy practice, while teaching Sociology 101, living in her newly built 3500 square foot house, married her college sweetheart turned eye doctor.
I was firmly planted in a story of living superficially overachieving in an idea of “righteousness” while waiting to hang it all up when becoming a mother…at which point (complete with a pearl choker and child care help) afternoons are then spent out with the ladies who lunch from church, doing service and charity work. That was the future awaiting me.
I had worked hard and by the world’s standards had it all. I was the living proof of the fulfillment of the quintessential American dream. At age 29 I could see the road ahead…years and years stretched out before me with every detail planned, accounted for and neatly organized in my Franklin-Covey day planner. I had achieved everything that was dreamed of for me. The only problem was, I was completely miserable.
Just one story from that time helps sum this up…
From age 26-29 there was an old Victorian house in the valley below on the road that lead to the home which my first husband and I had built in the hills above a beautiful lake. Out in the front garden of this house near the road there was placed a statue of a duck. Each day I drove down the hill and past this house, and each day the woman who owned it would dress this duck in a different outfit. So it was, day in and day out, my life stretched out before me doing all the things I was raised to believe I was supposed to do. I spent my time worshiping at the feet of the rat in this race. And each day the only real detectable difference from one to the next would be what was found on this duck. Over time, I found myself looking forward to seeing this fowl spectacle as it was one of the only changes and unknowns in my life flow.
Then… one day… it happened.
I drove by this Victorian house and found that the statue was gone.
It turned out that the duck lady had moved. The lady and her bird had flown the coop. In that moment of discovery, a light went off in my head and I knew in that instant that things can always be different. Life and all potentials are always contained just a new thought away moving away from the known into the making of different unknown choices.
Years 30-39 are then basically covered with having the courage to leave Punxsutawney. I attempted picking apart the ideas of any externalized right and wrong. It was a moving of the location of living to a personalized inner one and then, transcending that. It was relooking at the meanings in life:
In my questioning I had gone from an understanding of right and wrong as preset and determined outside myself, to a right and wrong personalized uniquely to me. In seeking to meet the “you” (which I would describe as unconditional love knowing my truer self) in that field, I imploded my life as I had known it. I preformed kriah at the death of the unreal life. Doing this was completely liberating and utterly terrifying all at once! I was standing at the edge of an abyss and CHOOSING to jump not knowing what I would find catching me.
At age 30, in a six month period, I:
*Divorced my first husband
*Stopped weekly attending the Christian church of my birth
*Sold my house
*Shuttered my private therapy practice
*Went on a three month road trip around north America (while living out of my car) *Started working as a flight attendant based out of NY City
*Moved across the country to start a new life…
I set myself FREE from the then known !!! BUT WHAT TO DO WITH THAT FREEDOM???
I was not yet clear about what thoughts to set this inner compass guide by.
In my beginning awakenings, there was a little hijack attempt made by pleasures found in spiritual Las Vegas to keep me trapped in a new type of thinking about “light” and “love” being “IT”. There were shiny new insights and warm fuzzies shared with others (also in their new, little life rafts) as we floated and huddled together while charting unsailed territory. This was a period of time immersed in the delicious surface fluff of the happy-happy of what could be termed the “new age” awakening movement on our planet. What an important role that particular port of call played in the story of the journey of awakening. However, contrary to what many of my fellow travelers experienced, it wasn’t a final destination for me.
What I had yet to understand was the importance of honoring my past and current ignorance by allowing of an ONGOING daily death of life as I now know it. I also had yet to understand the importance of also loving the-our-my shadow. Not doing so back then created a void of sorts. It created a situation where half of life on our planet was not really dealt with. It is a feeling of (as Tyler from Fight Club states): “premature enlightenment”
We glimpse nirvana, but only fleeting as we are forced into continuing to cat nap quite often within our awakening because we are still out of balance…
It is only after we have lost everything that we are really free to do ANY thing!
So years 40- to today have been about discovering the thoughts that lead to living in balance, to have gratitude for everything, staying with the pleasure and pain of life, and then transcending the need for anything at all. It has been about more and more sustained time awake just being…allowing…being in love in the light AND in the shadow found here. And within this being, we then cease the experience of polarity. Observation of events that happen in the life of M is still present, but the need to assign meaning in the same way isn’t.
For me today, awakening is about finding beauty and power in EVERYTHING… trash and treasure found as just the same. It has been about a focus shifting from what is done in my life to how it is done in complete gratitude with the details of actually what is done having less and less importance. I am remembering. I AM.

Affects and Changes of the Awakening Earth and Humanity
The Earth and Humankind are all part of a Natural Shift of Consciousness that is occurring now. Our solar system finds itself surrounded by a higher expansional energy; a new energy that we have called forth in our declaration for no more fear, greed and power-mongering.
It is an energy that resonates with LOVE. Love that Humans have learned to FEEL here on Earth. A love that creates DivineHumanBeings, allowing them to live in a peaceful and harmonious surrounding on Earth.
This new energy, of intense light actually affects the magnetic make-up of our whole solar system. Creating intense magnetic storms on our sun, where strong solar flares reach the Earths orbit and interfere with the magnetics within the Earth and the Human Being.
The Human body contains millions of tiny magnetic particles that interconnect through Human antennas to the Earth’s magnetic field, enabling the Human to receive and transmit consciousness which influence the physical body and all its internal systems.
The interference of the magnetic field is causing a cleansing effect on Earth, physical shifting and shaking the earth and her inhabitants, creating unusual weather patterns and within the Human Being; cleansing people from all their fears and yesterdays. It is actually the most beautiful gift that we can receive.
Intense light to naturally awaken our consciousness, changing our DNA and crystalising our molecules. Our inner light, our being is being ignited anew, clearing our body of past debris, burning away everything that no longer serves us, leaving nothing but pure love and passion within each Human Being and the Earth.
During this Shift in Consciousness… our Awakening is affecting our mental, emotional and physical bodies, pulling us all ways and putting us through some uncomfortable and painful times. Not only are we integrating and releasing all our own past life patterns and karma that no longer serves us, but that of all our ancestors that have lived before us.
Our Body Consciousness; Body, Mind, Spirit and Aspects is naturally finding a new balance of Sovereign ONENESS.
It is most important neither to fight nor to give in, but to trust that everything is all so perfect. This is our journey that we have chosen to live now so let’s enjoy the ride and allow our Embodied Ascension to happen quite naturally.
Physical… Aches and pains in the joints, especially neck, shoulders and back, heat sensations beyond the menopause, feeling hot and cold, feeling dizzy and shaky, vertigo, ringing in the ears, nauseous, extreme itchy skin, red patchy & lumpy skin, exhaustion and feeling tired, waking up a lot, headaches and migraine, stomach aches and indigestion, no appetite, extremes of diarrhoea and constipation, eating a lot, heart palpitations, irregular heartbeat
Emotional… Crying, deep sadness, confused, nervousness, passionless, anger, extreme fear
Mental… Anxious, intense dreaming, loneliness, not thinking straight, foggy, not remembering, losing words, depressed
Barbara’s suggestions for more comfort
Consciously breathing in the new energy, especially in painful areas and fearful feelings for at least 10 mins. at a time, healthy daily eating of protein, good fats, lots of fruit and veg (fibre), drink plenty of fresh water (with pinch seasalt/bicarb of soda once a week), moderate use of caffeine, coffee, tea and alcohol, positive and loving self talk, soaking the body in Epsom salts and lavender oil, walking in nature or some form of gentle exercise you enjoy 20 mins a day, sleep a lot… napping through the day if possible, trust yourself… even when doubt tries to creep into your mind.
