The Awakening Posted on March 26, 2020 by GramaTortoise Imagine your physical experience, everything you see and hear and touch, the three dimensional world as you know it, is a house. You have lived your whole life in the house and it’s very straightforward. Sometimes things can be heard outside, but it’s not really an issue. If you’ve seen some shapes passing the windows, “There is something out there!” it might gives you chills, or a moment of joy and wonder. You might save up those experiences, treasure them, or you might dismiss them as coincidence. Still there is no tangible connection with the outside. Then one day, there are knocks at the door. Lots. And they don’t go away. One day, there are voices at the windows and doors, asking to come in. And finally, someone walks into the front door. Even if it is a glorious light being, its a stranger walking into your space. You could be elated, inspired, or afraid. Somehow, there are people who can open your door, and it isn’t you. Even when the spirits visiting are kind, it’s disturbing. This experience is common. It’s called by many, the awakening. It’s exciting and a wonderful widening of our world, and it can be intimidating. This is when a class in meditation, particularly developing your abilities to open and close the door to the spirit world, is so helpful. Now imagine that same house. And when someone knocks, they can’t come in unless you open the door. Imagine that all the messages arrive when you need them and not randomly, they are no longer invasive and overwhelming. You have the ability to open the door and ask for assistance when you need. And now you’re free to go outside your house, travel, meet others, make friends, and explore the energetic landscape.
