For those awakening divine humans

The only way out is in

This morning at Starbucks a man who I know, who has been coming here as long as I have, and who is here every day, said he was feeling particularly lonely.  We don’t sit and have long conversations with each other, but we catch a few words with each other now and then.

From time to time, he tells me he gets job offers out-of-state, but is reluctant to take them because he says that he has it good now.  He is his own boss, and has freedoms he wouldn’t if he worked for someone else.  But, he confessed, he was bored.  And often lonely.  That most people didn’t get where he was coming from.  And that “There has to be more than this.”

And, of course it was a great segue to my, ‘Yes, there is more.  The boredom and loneliness are an invitation for you to go within.”  And so we had a brief discussion on that concept.  But I could see that he was resistant to it, and still thought maybe he was just stalling on pursuing a new career, and relocating.

And, of course, maybe that was true.  We all fear new experiences, even if they will be good ones in the long run.  Change is scarey.

But, I sensed that he was beginning his own awakening.  He just wasn’t aware of it yet.  But there is a part of him that knows, even if he moved across the country, and took a new job, he would still be contending with that feeling of loneliness.  It will follow him.

He has enough awareness now to know that no job or money or possessions are going to fulfill him on that deeper level.

So, after he left the coffee shop this morning, I started to feel a deep sadness, and very lonely myself, to the point of shedding some tears.  Not typical for me these days.  But, I had to wonder, was I picking up on his sadness, because he certainly was feeling it.

At one point in the conversation he talked about how the Catholic Church promoted sexual abuse because so many men repressed their own feelings and in many cases even their own homosexuality.

He may have been trying to share with me his own concerns about repressing his own emotions.  Projection is typical when we are not owning our own feelings.

An interesting thing about projection, though, is that as we move deeper into our awakening, we project less and less.  We become more clear, and that clarity has no need to reflect anymore.

We discover that most of the emotions we did feel, the darker ones, were picked up along the way, either through our ancestry, or mass consciousness.  But we also had to go through the darkness to become lighter.

To feel the sadness, the sense of abandonment, guilt, shame, and anger.  Whatever came up.

A few minutes ago, I felt that sadness intensely.  My first instinct was to scramble out of it.  I was so uncomfortable.  I tried to analyze it away.  Maybe it was his sadness I was picking up on.  And, yes, it probably was.  But I knew I wasn’t going to transmute it if I stayed in my head, analyzing where it may have come from.

So, I bit the bullet.  And, shed some tears into my coffee.  I began feeling all the times in my life that my heart felt broken.  I worried that I would never recover.  But, in short order, the emotions moved out.

Yes, it’s true what they say, the only way out is in.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Almost a decade later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  1. Perfect! Speak it, dear Sistar Goddess!

    Or as I like to say, It’s an inside Job!

    Love you and bless you for the transmutation. Muah 😘😘😘😘😘💖💖💖💖💖🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️💦💦💦💦💦💦😂😂😂😂😂💧💧👁️👁️👁️👁️💖💖😘😘🙃🙃🙃

  2. Yes, sadness is quite frequent, however, there’s nothing like a soft, gentle white snowfall to help clear it away. Really like the picture above, Maria. It’s so very quiet and peaceful and everyone has to slow down. Just wanted to say that my heart goes out to those who are on the ascension path and are also working and/or raising families. I am truly amazed at their stamina and generosity and am grateful to be retired and on my own. Much love to all. B.

    • Barbara, I agree about the snow…that’s exactly how I felt lookI guess at the picture of the freshly fallen snow in the city. Reminds me of times just like you describe. And, agree too, on this process for those with families and jobs…bless them, and thank you all for your service. 💜

  3. Bless you for this, for sharing your story so openly. Very moving and very helpful to me, as is so much of what you write

    I’m sitting here this morning realising that I have to share some of the pain that “Christmas” brings up for me, pain that sme people are no longer here (I am 69 years old) and that the ones who are seem to be emotionally unavailable. I live alone and I’m limited as well by a chronic health condition that makes it difficult to travel. I know that this is an invitation to go inwards, to bring the repressed feelings to the surace and share them, and I’m fortunate in having a group I attend where I can do this if I have the courage!. I’m all too prone to slapping on a happy face just to keep the mask on in the company of others.

    And then to let the feelings go and to be open to what the Solstice means for me now and going forward and how to celebrate this miraculous event, the return of the Light, with love, joy and integrity.

    • Margaret, I have deep compassion for you. This process is arduous at times, both physically and emotionally. And, it seems on the physical side of things, the body is always the last to catch up with our new consciousness.

      And meanwhile it can limit us, and can at times erode our joy.

      And, yes, it’s exhausting to do the happy face. This process will bring up emotions as we know that are not so happy. I like to refer to something an Ascended Master once said, that an ascending human is often a pissed off human. I’m paraphrasing. But you get the point.

      So, good for you that you are allowing the emotions space, and not trying to fit into a world that is, frankly, really disfunctional. Sending you blessings and love.💜

      • “I like to refer to something an Ascended Master once said, that an ascending human is often a pissed off human. I’m paraphrasing. But you get the point.”

        Oh yes, I get the point :-). Heh.

        Thank you Maria. I’m very glad to have found your blog xx

  4. Absolutely My Maria! Thank you for your incredible wisdom dear friend!! xoxo💖
