My first awakening happened in my early twenties, in 1974, after sincerely telling the universe I wanted to know more. This started me on my spiritual path. I progressed on my path pretty normally up until the last 20 years when life became very intense and hard. The deepest shifts in my spiritual awakenings were during this time precipitated from illnesses, hardships and tragedies. These were the methods my soul/Higher self chose for me to go through to ascend and to strip away my ego. It is absolutely true what doesn’t kill us will make us stronger.
The very short version of my awakening story is: I have a virus in my body which made it difficult for me to work normally to earn a living because I don’t have enough energy. This forced me into surrendering into a new lifestyle that gave me more time to ponder reality then what most people are able to do. And because of the virus and not being able to work, there was a lengthy period in my life when I was close to becoming homeless. And during this time of devastating hardship, my longtime soul mate suddenly became ill and died. After his death and over the months that followed, I completely let go of everything in the material world I had been holding on to.
This was all happening during the first stage of the crisis in the Middle East, when so many beings were going through intense hardships. This made what i was going through seem like peanuts. This gave me an important perspective and I became grateful for the smallest things in my life. Also during this time, I pushed the envelope to develop a deep relationship with my higher self and to ask really deep questions about reality. It was an ultra intense time for me to study and gain higher Knowledge. I had a deep thirst to know the things others would say “there is no way to know such things while in the human form”. No one had the undistorted information which I wanted to know, so it was up to me to find out for myself and so I did. This raised my vibration even more.
And little by little, in the last three years after my ascension and awakening into the highest of dimensions, I have been given a secure place to live and a small inheritance and recently a new soul mate has appeared. I am very grateful indeed.
