A Messy Human Angel

Art by Maria Chambers

As an artist, musician and writer, I have created a wide range of forms.  Some have been calm and peaceful and some have been more provocative.  And of course, art is invariably in the eye of the beholder.  Some of my figures have made people feel at peace, and the same figures have made others uncomfortable.

Not unusual since we are all different.  I always encourage people, no matter what their background or skills in art, writing, or music may be, to express themselves.  And, even more importantly, to do it first for themselves.

It is critical not to censor ourselves in the creative process.  Some of the most evocative works of art have been ones that just express raw emotion.  Often children are the most uninhibited and provocative artists, before they are programmed to suppress their imaginations.

In our ascension process, we have been face to face with the most raw of emotions.  We have been practicing allowing all the emotions, to not censor them, and to also not identify with them.  For many of us the tricky part is not judging any of the emotions as bad, or inappropriate.

Most of the denser emotions are all about self-judgement anyway.  The hardest part of our awakening is to realize that we are beautiful souls just having a human experience.  Human life is messy.  And that feels unspiritual to us.

We have been conditioned to believe that being spiritual means we don’t have dark thoughts or emotions any more.  Can anyone guess where that came from?  Sunday school, perhaps?

The awakening process has a way of tearing at us not only physically, but emotionally.  When we invite spirit into our body and our lives, we open ourselves up to being so vulnerable.  Whatever there is in us that hasn’t felt worthy of love comes to the surface.

There is nowhere to hide anymore.

But we wanted to have a new experience.  We wanted to know what it feels like to be loved unconditionally by spirit, by our own Soul.  Not the kind of love you get when you are on your best behavior.  Like on a first date. Where you try to show the other how sweet and understanding you are.  How calm and balanced you are.

There is a part of us that doesn’t believe spirit could love us with all of our so-called character flaws.  After all, as humans, the love we received has always been conditional.

But our I Am, our eternal self loves us just as we are, just as we were, in this and all other lifetimes.  There is nothing we have to prove.  We are not asked to earn worthiness.

It’s awkward, because our impulse, when we are feeling one of those dark emotions, is to self-analyze.  We try to figure out where we went wrong.   There are so many times in life, this messy human life, when we feel like we fall short of whatever constitutes a spiritual being.

Like there’s some goal post we keep missing.

But, thankfully, that’s all bull.  And the sooner we get over that one, the better.  Just as an artist has the creative license to express whatever they desire, so we too, are free to be human, with all of its messiness.

There is no cookie cutter formula for spirituality.  If someone tells you that you must be all forgiving and all understanding of others, I say, get up and leave as soon as possible.


If someone thinks that being an expressive human means expressing only the polite, pretty and peaceful aspects of themselves, they are not a true artist.  They are not a pioneer.  But, you are pioneers.  You are here to bring a new consciousness to this planet.  That takes great creative spirit.  It takes going deeper than most humans allow themselves to go,

It means going for it totally, the dark as well as the light.

Whatever is in your heart to create and to then share is something that many others are ready to see or hear, or read.

As pioneers we are not here to win a popularity contest.  We knew that coming in.  Our ideas are not those of the masses.  So whatever we want to express and share, it will resonate with others, and sometimes it won’t.

But being pioneers, we can’t afford to tailor our creations to please everyone, because then we please no-one.

Being true to ourselves is first and foremost.  We knew that coming in.  We knew we couldn’t compromise ourselves yet another lifetime.  We knew that it was this lifetime or none at all.

Shifts in consciousness don’t happen from complacency.  From playing it safe.   Many of us know all too well the risks of not playing it safe.  But this lifetime is different.  We are safe in the new, balanced energy we have created for ourselves.

Most of us consider sitting around and ‘ohmming’ pretty boring.

Most other humans aren’t aware of the depths we have travelled on not only a physical but an emotional level.  But to those who are ready to awaken to their Soul’s unconditional love for them, who better a role model of self-love, and self-acceptance than a sometimes very messy human angel?

    I’ve been lurking, but haven’t commented much lately. SO SO much coming to the surface. Its very painful emotionally sometimes. Although being such an extreme empath, I often wonder, is it mine or theirs? Yes, I’m familiar with those dark emotions. Sometimes I wonder what kind of a pioneer I am. I know I’m an old soul, but pioneer? That I agree with, most don’t understand or are comfortable with the depths of emotions I go into.

    1. Sherry, it’s definitely challenging when so much comes up emotionally. Sometimes it’s triggered by a specific event, sometimes it seems to just come out of nowhere. Being an empath, I venture to guess those emotions are probably from others.

      And, frankly, most of the denser, darker emotions are not really ours to begin with. We inherited them, or picked them up along the way, and tried to make them ours.

      And the beauty of this process is, we don’t need to figure out any of that. The minute we try to analyze or wrestle with any of it, we stop the flow. As uncomfortable as some of those emotions can be, we are discovering it’s better to just allow them to come and go rather than try to escape them. And, self analysis is actually a clever way to not feel the uncomfortable feelings.

      That’s what makes us the masters. Mastery is all about allowing, and therefore transmuting the energies. And, over time we recognize that those emotions have less and less effect on us. We recognize that we get to choose how we want to feel.

      That is what I mean by being pioneers. We are the first to do this transmuting and that creates new energy on earth.

    Yes Maria, I agree with everything you said. Yes, I’m a big transmuter, I’ve always known that. Yes, I agree, when I analyze the feelings, it gets worse. Better to let it come up and out.

    Super article, thanks, Maria. I am reminded of the hundreds of times I have had said to me by family or friends, “Oh, don’t be so sensitive.” and felt misunderstood/rejected/didn’t fit in/all those yech feelings when you know deep in your heart that your sensitivity is one of the most precious feelings you have, discovered along the path to be the answer to both the dark and the light. End result: I’m so glad I’m sensitive, though just as Sherry says, it can still push my buttons when it comes from another as an accusation of some sort of wrongdoing or ineptitude on my part. Raspberry to that! Love, B.

      ” “Oh, don’t be so sensitive.” and felt misunderstood/rejected/didn’t fit in/all those yech feelings when you know deep in your heart that your sensitivity is one of the most precious feelings you have, ”

      Plus it’s not that we can control this, can we? It’s like saying to someone with brown eyes “oh dont be so brown-eyed”. It’s silly. And it’s usually said by people who stomp on other people’s feelings and refuse to acknowledge that they are being grossly insensitive.

      1. Exactly Kat; as if we can stop it. I think it also comes from people being uncomfortable with our light and intensity of feeling things. After all, if we say our truth, it might bring up feelings in them, which they would rather compartmentalize and ignore. So they try to shut us down.

  4. Oh, yes, Barbara….the ‘Too sensitive’ remarks….and, well said…it IS the most precious feeling, asset we have. But, in a Patriarchy, any type of sensitivity, including intuition is seen as inferior, weak. And, I wager that others, especially the male gender, (except for those of you brave men out there who are on the ascension path and are awakening to your own feminine) are envious of it, they for the most part have cut off their intuition in order to be more ‘manly.’ Sad. Anyway, thanks for your wisdom. 💜

    Wow, all of the above my feelings/sentiments exactly. Since reading soulsoothinsounds (about 6 months now) I have not commented before today because I have been confused about all the different teachings about ascension, whats required, what isn’t and it all looked so daunting and uncertain. However my mind has slowly been made up by reading soulsoothinsounds that these I call them teachings, but acknowledge that teaching may not be the intent here but rather a sharing of one’s own experiences along the way, but I do resonate very much so with a lot of the content on this blog and find a grace and forgiveness in allowing things to just be and to allow the messy side of us to be made known and accepted by us in order to transmute rather than reject the energies which will only make the problem worst, but by allowing these denser energies to emerge and in accepting them causes them to become less and less powerful over us. Oh what blessed relief that would be………. most other healing modalities seem to always suggest analysing and going deep within to find out what went wrong in your childhood, I’ve had a lifetime of doing that, I am 64 years old and am tired of all this analysing and no matter how much I understand what happened and how it affected me there has been no healing in this, yet I was learning intuitively to just stop fighting these emotions (dark energies in motion) and finding it lessened the intensity of it, and then I read this today, just validating and confirming what I was already intuitively doing, so thank you for sharing your experiences and being a wayshower to resonate or not, whatever the case may be.

    1. Janice, I’m so glad you’re finding confirmation here at soulsoothinsounds, for so much of what you are experiencing.

      I like what you say, How you “find a grace and forgiveness in allowing things to just be and to allow the messy side of us to be made known and accepted by us in order to transmute rather than reject the energies which will only make the problem worst, but by allowing these denser energies to emerge and in accepting them causes them to become less and less powerful over us.”

      And that’s the most challenging thing to do, I believe. Especially when things feel like they are going downhill.

      And yes, I too have spent way too much time and energy trying to figure things out, analyzing them, trying to get to the root cause, and still no resolution.

      The self-help industry has made a fortune on that one. Lol.

      But it’s that mental, male energy of trying to fix things, like our health, our finances, and even our emotions. The feminine energies of acceptance and allowing and receiving (our soul’s energies) are what will shift the energies enough to bring things back into balance. And getting the mind to trust that doing nothing is the solution seems to be the hard part.

      Thank you for weighing in with your wisdom. 💜
