Rules #46: "Waking Up is Hard to Do": The Soul's Journey of Awakening

"As Spiritual As I Wannabe"

So often people cry out… "I want to move farther down on the spiritual path" but when they do, inevitably there will be "growing pains" along the way. Especially now that more intense energies are entering the Earth and causing the world to change so rapidly.

In many respects, this New Age offers karmic "bargains" and opportunities for growth that simply did not exist before.

As in people more quickly working through their life contracts and blowing through their
past life karma. For those who are ready, this process of expansion will put quite a strain on the body's ability to keep up with the changes.

"I Just Want to Go Home"

Often this rapid change activates the "quiet part of you that wants to go Home" to the inner worlds of God. With karma under control and good progress on your contract, you feel "ready to begin a new lifetime while still in this physical body."

"During this transition process, you have an inner remembrance of what it is like to be on the other side." And because you do, "another tour of duty here on Earth" might not seem so appealing… especially as you - and everyone else - are faced with the challenges of awakening to these new energies. It is meeting the challenges that are often "creating the problem": the "growing pains" from waking up (which are listed and explained below). Be assured that these too shall pass.

Remember that "Spirit needs you here to help others transition into the new energy. They will need a human guide, just like you, who has taken the journey from the old energy into the new. The path you are walking right now provides the experiences to enable you to become a teacher". So, hang in there, because although "waking up is hard to do", once you have awakened, your "brand new life" will be bigger, better, richer, and more satisfying than it has ever been before!

So here is why "waking up is so very hard to do"...


The process of waking up usually begins with the "shedding" past life karma. "Karmic dreams" become the way to work off past life karma by having you face any residual fears or other negative baggage. Quite literally, you need to "drop" what is no longer serving you. This "shedding" will manifest in your dream state as dreams of being chased, running away, fighting battles, or defeating enemies. You are releasing the energies of the past that have no place in your vibrant present. Once you have worked through your "baggage", these dreams will simply stop.


An inevitable consequence of intense dreaming is disrupted sleep patterns. The load of "karmic dreams" will become so intense that your mind will jolt you awake during the night. Literally, you will need to "take a break" from your karmic dreaming and… from the "other work" being performed on you overnight. For those who are ready will attract the assistance of inner beings who will work on "upgrading" their body to support the greater changes in their consciousness that they are seeking. Like "karmic dreams", this disruption will eventually stop.


An inevitable part of having disrupted sleep is experiencing disorientation while awake. You will feel "spaced out" or "not quite myself" or "a bit out of the body" or "feeling off" or "not centered and grounded". This may result in some awkwardness and clumsiness as in "bumping into things", "dropping things", or "missing the mark".

That is because you are living "between two worlds": the way you are used to being and the way you are becoming. It will take some time for your body to readjust to your new way of being. Just be patient with the process… for this too shall pass. And when it does, you will be able to operate from a greater level of awareness.


An inevitable part of disrupted mental processes is experiencing disruptions in physical functioning. In many ways, the "physical hits" are the most unpleasant part of the awakening process. They are unavoidable… as you awaken to greater levels of consciousness, your cellular memory (DNA, etc) must change to support your expanded beingness. This disruption usually manifests as "body aches and pains, especially in the neck, shoulder and back." It can also manifest as angina (serious heart pain), migraines (blinding headaches), and infections (strep throat, bronchitis, flu, ulcers, etc) that come like a sudden storm… and pass away as quickly too.


An inevitable part of disrupted physical health is experiencing disruptions in emotional functioning. The commonest result is "crying for no apparent reason". Crying is a part of the transition process. In crying you are releasing layers of anger, fear, hurt, sadness, guilt, and other negative emotions that have become "stuck" in your body over many past lifetimes of "doing hard time on planet Earth".

So if you are "crying for no apparent reason", know that it is probably a blessing that you have been spared from being "burdened with the tremendous load of past life memories" that would explain your tears. So just let them flow. You might also experience directly the waves of anger, fear, hurt, sadness, guilt, as they flow through you. Just let them go with love… and know that this too shall pass.


An inevitable part of disrupted emotions is experiencing disruptions in spiritual functioning. If you believe that greater spirituality should lead you to more joy, love, and awareness, you are right. So if your spirituality is bringing you nothing but "deep inner sadness for no apparent reason", know that you are releasing spiritual sadness that you have known in many past lifetimes.

"This is similar to the experience of moving from a house where you lived in for many, many years into a new house. As much as you want to move into the new house, there is a sadness of leaving behind the memories, energy and experiences of the old house. This too shall pass" and shall bring you to your greater joy.


All this disruption is bound to leave you feeling very empty "with little or no desire to do anything". Congratulations… the change over to your new enhanced way of being has begun. "Take this time to do 'no-thing'." Do not resist this feeling: "it is similar to rebooting a computer. You need to shut down for a brief period of time in order to load sophisticated new software". Instead of moaning that you are temporarily "off line", instead rejoice knowing that once you get fully back online, you will be able to become all that you have ever wished that you could be!


There is a profound difference between being alone and being lonely. Being alone means that you are not physically in the company of others. Being lonely means that you do not feel connected to anyone or anything and that can happen even when - and especially when - others are present. As you are "making the change", you will feel "removed from others" and will want to "flee from groups and crowds".

"As much as the feelings of loneliness cause you anxiety, it is difficult to relate to others at this time." So it is best to be alone for awhile - physically apart from others - so that you can "fill your space with your own divinity". Think of this alone time as a sort of hibernation. You are resting and rebuilding in a winter of aloneness so that you will be ready to spring forth into your true place in the universe when the time comes for you to fully embrace your greater destiny.


You will recognize that you are turning the corner when you find yourself talking to your Higher Self much more often. "There is a new level of communication taking place within your being… The conversations will increase, and they will become more fluid, more coherent and more insightful." In essence, you will begin the process of more rapidly evolving into your Higher Self… your true self.


As you step into the greater totality of yourself on the inside, things on the outside all around you will start to change as well ("as above, so below"). The most direct result will be a sudden change in job or career.

The best advice is this: "do not worry about finding the perfect job or career right now. You are in transition and you may make several job changes before you settle into one that fits your passion." Just go with the flow, be open to learning the lessons as you do, and trust that you are being given the best possible training to prepare you to embrace your best and greatest destiny.


Another result of changing is withdrawing from relationships that no longer serve you. "When you get off the karmic cycle, the bonds of the old relationships are released. It will appear as though you are drifting away from your family and friends." In the end, you may (or may not) develop a new relationship with them if it is appropriate… and if it is in keeping with the new person that you are becoming.


The best description of this awakening process was given by our client, "Immogen". It speaks powerfully to what it is like in becoming a newly awakened being:

"Suddenly... A few deaths… Traumatic… Remembering my blood lineage… Past lives… Coming into my body… It's all in there now… Actually experiencing what it is to be alive in one's body… Awakening... Expecting to find others like me waiting to celebrate my spiritual graduation… Not being able to connect with them as yet…"

"Remembering my childhood… Where I have been during this life… The people who truly are my friends… The many people who have hurt me… The lies… The secrets… Taking stock of what I have accomplished thus far… Feeling like a failure for waking up so late in life…"

"Feeling alone… As though I had purposely been isolated… Being freshly hatched out of an egg… And not liking the world that I see… Feeling as though I am racing against an invisible stop watch… Yearning to return to where I come from but not really feeling welcome there… Learning to enjoy and trust the process… Feeling like the odds are stacked against me…"

"Heavy Karma… Bad Karma… Perseverance… Keeping my objective of leaving where I am clear… And working towards it every day… Feeling Conscious… Feeling betrayal… The ache of having been surrounded with people who cannot understand… Knowing that I must go on to confront the past so that I may move on to the future… Living in several dimensions at the same time… Having to learn to shift between dimensions… Switch it on switching it off…"

"Compartmentalizing the daily grind of life chores from new growth… Remembering, remembering, remembering… Understanding… Reconnecting with people in this life who I have known for eons in past lives… Hoping that they will recognize me and welcome me… Opening doors… Closing others… Having to wait to see people that may be able to confirm that they know who I am… just as I know who they are..."

"Hoping that I will not be too late... Learning to become who I already am… Trying to stop worrying and just go on doing and accept what happens instead… Rearing that inner child so that it may merge healthy with my adult self… Learning the difference between illusion and reality... Planning while making it happen... Inching my way to a door that I need to tear open and close behind me… What I have learned thus far cannot be undone…"

"Wanting to keep on learning... Wanting to keep on growing... Ready to keep on going..."

Ready to keep on growing: for this is the essence of the awakened Soul.
