Staying Alive

Me back home

Note: This post is for those who have chosen Embodied Realization in this lifetime.
Why does realization feel so elusive? That moment in time when we shift from a life we have been living for over a thousand lifetimes, to a life as the embodied master? Why does that feel so implausible? Why can’t we wrap our mind around being predominantly the human one minute, and the next, being predominantly the I AM, or the Master?


Because every other lifetime, we had to eventually terminate our transient, temporal human experience, and actually die in order to refocus into our natural state of eternal, limitless joy.  That was our moment of realization.

So now we are going to do what we have done more than a thousand times before, reconnect with our eternal, limitless self, except now while remaining in human form. While staying alive.

Before, as we passed on to the non-physical through the death process, we were always astounded at how beautiful it is. At how incredibly light we suddenly felt as we shed our human clothing and left behind our heavy human condition.

Like watching a drama-filled movie in a darkened theatre, and then emerging back outside into the brilliant sunlight, so bright it hurts our eyes initially.

Each time we were surprised at how absolutely free we felt, as we left behind our human form, and a life that was so challenging to us. An unnatural physical body and physical environment that demands so much from us, As the human we had forgotten our natural freedom that we experience in our non-physical, soul form. Yet, all it took was suddenly dying, which we all did many, many times, to realize who we actually are.

And we always took with us into our non-physical, natural state of consciousness some resistance that built up here.  So it took a period of adjustment  after we died, to release that resistance.

But we also took with us the wisdom our soul gleaned from each lifetime.

So, our realization in this lifetime will also be pretty sudden, like one minute we are the human who has a variety of human problems and a history of experiences and a variety of human emotions, and the next we will be feeling the simplicity, and the ecstatic sensuality of our soul.

Except this time we are prepared to stay. To not have to actually die. We have been prepping ourself to receive our eternal self into our life and our body. We have had glimpses of that ecstatic state of being, our natural state.

Me and my brother back home

We have been shedding our old skin for quite awhile. Releasing our ancestors, our spiritual families in the other realms, and mass consciousness. We have been integrating our aspects from this and all our other lifetimes. We have been slowly receiving our light body, our natural body.

We have been learning how our consciousness affects energy.  That we have a limitless source of energy available to us.  But more as a concept, not fully practiced by us.

We have been, incrementally, over time, releasing resistance, but still feel that there is plenty of unresolved issues left.

Even with all of our personal dedication to our own enlightenment, working with our shadow, all of our human emotions, we still feel unprepared. We may still feel unworthy of reuniting with the celestial part of us. 

Yet, even with all of that preparation, we will still be surprised. We will still be in sudden awe of who we ARE. There will be tears in our eyes.

And in that moment, which none of us will expect….it could happen as we are doing a crossword puzzle, or during a nap…..this harsh, dense physical environment may not look so appealing anymore. There may be a momentary, powerful pull to float off into that sensual state.

But the plan was to stay, at least for awhile, and to experience being the walking, realized master, who is enjoying a partnership with their human expression.

And it will be such a personal, precious time.  There will not be fanfare.  It will be a quiet and delicate time of integration and adjustment, different for each of us.

So, the human may still feel like it’s impossible, this Realization thing. It is incredible, but it’s just as possible as it was the other thousand times. But this time when we greet ourSELF, it will be right here.

And then life will never be the same.  How could it?

    Hello My Maria!
    Loved this message, and the part in quotations lended me a voice to try and describe what I’ve been experiencing.
    Such extreme back and forth from bliss to feeling like screaming/I can’t do this anymore, seriously it has been freaking me out! Right when I settle into the Bliss and all its magnificent perks…..bam, back to the dense heavy crap. Wave after wave, it feels so endless at this point, makes me wonder what the hell am I doing wrong, or am I just SO sensitive that I continue to pick up on the Collective density!?
    I use to be able to say ‘This too shall pass’, can’t even go there anymore because it’s not passing much, or at least not for very long anymore….I don’t know.

    Anyway, I do hope you are doing well, and I think of you so very often, just haven’t been able to get out what I’ve been feeling for awhile now.

    Much love to you my friend, and much love everyone! 💛💖💛

    1. My sweet Annette, you’re definitely not alone in feeling like the yo-yo that’s up, then down so suddenly. It’s perplexing, and tiring.

      And, me too, I say it often, and quite loudly, “I can’t do this anymore!”

      And we tend to blame ourselves. What am I doing wrong, or not doing? Am I not allowing enough? Not trusting enough? Are there parts of me still holding the collective energies?

      And, actually, the reasons don’t really matter, because we are in some ways as the human just along for the ride, and after a point we can’t figure any of it out, nor should we.

      But it’s good, because if we as the human tried to manage and control this process, it wouldn’t go anywhere. And, despite our angst and our feeling that nothing really positive is happening, it has shifted our inner being in profound ways.

      But it’s been so slow that we barely have noticed any change at all.

      It matters that it’s so damned frustrating. And that it feels endless. And nice platitudes don’t seem to help, like, ‘you’re closer than you think’, or ‘it’s always the hardest or the most intense or the most frustrating the closer we get.’

      But, there is actually truth to those platitudes.

      Sometimes how we may be feeling (the lows) isn’t a good gauge for where we are in this process. I discovered that recently.

      But despite it all, I am so happy you are here, and are keeping the rest of us company through this crazy transformation.

      I think of you often too. 🙏🦋💕

  2. LOVE!! The whole darn thing. AND I really like this and have been having more glimpses.
    “Except this time we are prepared to stay. To not have to actually die. We have been prepping ourself to receive our eternal self into our life and our body. We have had glimpses of that ecstatic state of being, our natural state.”

    This: “We have been shedding our old skin for quite awhile. Releasing our ancestors, our spiritual families in the other realms, and mass consciousness. We have been integrating our aspects from this and all our other lifetimes. We have been slowly receiving our light body, our natural body.” I have often felt that I was the hugest of onions, peeling and peeling and peeling. forever and ever amen!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE “And it will be such a personal, precious time. There will not be fanfare. It will be a quiet and delicate time of integration and adjustment, different for each of us.” That is kind of what I’ve been feeling lately. Just pure peace and lovely quiet.

    I love your photos of kid you and your brother.

    I could not help but hear this song…….

    And I could not help cracking up watching this very amusing video. oh my!

    thank you so much dearest Sistar Maria friend. Blessings upon you and upon us all.

    love love love love love

    1. Oh, isn’t that funny, dear siSTAR! I was also thinking of the song, Stayin Alive as I wrote my Post title, and said to myself, I ought to include the video of the song. Well, that darn synchronicity. Delivered it through you my sweet friend. So, thank you!!!

      And, oh, it was so much fun creating the home movie version of my trip to Greece. My brother has been sending me so many old photos, too, and I’ve been creating videos with them. I will post them as I create new ones. Yay, so much fun!!,

    I have been on this journey for 7 1/2 years, and found your blog last week. I’m always astounded on how you find exactly what you need to hear, exactly when you need it. I’m not going anywhere, I’m sticking around and enjoying the ride. After all, I worked my ass off for it. Thanks, Maria.

    Beautifully summarised and put Maria!
    I feel by now my issues have been done with (30 yeas at it should do it, right?)) last week in a final finish with family of origin ( or what was left of that link or duty, I had a couple of days eruption that really felt like a life review and taking the overview of what I had explored. Now there is a disconnect and absence as I leave them to play out their stories. It felt like completion.
    My desire isnt to stay though. When I am more in my soul energies I don’t have an issue with it. However when coming up more again into the human, I feel the pull of Home in a way I guess salmon feel.
    So hopefully that quick flip back into ourselves again happens soon. I hope my focus will then shift away to Home when I have then imprinted my completion into the Earth dynamics.. However, I have surrendered to the process, and have to believe all will be good wherever I feel I am. The ‘me’ I see myself as then will be different anyway, and may have another view than the me who is more than ready to go..

    1. Lyn, , Yes, family. That’s usually the toughest in this transformation. All that karmic stuff. Kudos on releasing them.

      And of course your decision to leave is very honored. After a point It just comes down to where you feel the most joy. There’s no obligation thankfully to stay. We have already completed what we came here to do, to help bring in the new consciousness, the new energy, and to stay Here, for some, is just icing on the cake.

      And yes, so true, “ The ‘me’ I see myself as then will be different anyway, and may have another view than the me who is more than ready to go..”. …We will be different. And it will be interesting to see what choice we make in that moment.

      Thank you for being here, and bringing light to the planet. 🙏🦋💕

      1. Lyn

        Thanks Maria. I find there are so few spiritual pieces online I can relate to thesedays, so nice to connect this way.
        I was wondering after I posted, whether I was being arrogant in thinking I was complete with old stuff.
        We just really never know on the ground what is really required to reach completion. How perfectionist does the cleaning truly need to be? Are we just waiting for others, or the boost of some Event before we can do the big breakthrough or completion we have sought? Is it about reaching some pre-agreed position in time, or an amount of light the body has now managed?
        We certainly must be dragging within us a huge number of beliefs that have been added on the spiritual ascension trail. Some may be helpful but my guess is that we have proudly released a lot of old thinking but replaced it with many other dodgy newer concepts, which may be blockages or limitations too.
        There are so many different views within the ascension community, I’ve got to a point where I’m really unsure which hold water. So, increasingly it’s letting everything drop away, including those.
        Thanks again, namaste
        Lyn

        1. Lyn, I appreciate your your wisdom and candor, and, really, you can’t have the one without the other. Lol.

          I agree, it feels like too many old concepts have been dragged into our enlightenment experience. And it may go back to the church, and religious teachings that tell us that we are impure, and must rid ourselves of the devil before entering into the kingdom.

          Or maybe we felt that way long before we even created the Earth, when we left the kingdom of our Spiritual families to explore SELF. we ‘fell out of grace’ because we forgot who we are. Thus the beginning of self judgement.

          So the question of how much more clearing, or how much more light body integration is needed before we can be ‘worthy’ of well, of OURSELF, feels like an unanswerable question. Elusive at best.

          But it does seem that as the human we can keep our soul at arms length because of not trusting her. Of not feeling worthy. Which may not stop the transformation, but can make it more uncomfortable.

          And it is a great way for the mind to stay in control, or try to. Lol.

          So I agree that the best thing we can do is let it all go. Not think about it. And who knows, it could be as simple as we want to explore this 3D time and space a little more before leaving it behind for good. Because once we reach that threshold of consciousness, there’s no backseys.

          1. Barbara

            Lyn and Maria… you are having my conversation, thank you! After reading your article, Maria, I thought well, who knows, really? Especially as it’s not been done before, at least not that I know of. Some say the Maya folks just up and left one day, and some say that the planet, Venus, got fed up with the silliness of 3D and raised Herself into the 5th taking her peeps with her. I like your expression, Maria, Embodied Realization… makes more sense compared to other descriptions, and feels pretty darned good when one realizes that Soul has been here all along… doesn’t need to be embodied… already is. Wish I could say I realized that years ago, might have been an easier ‘labor of love’. B.

          2. Wow. The wisdom is just oozing out here….it’s so nice to hear these wonderful perspectives. Yes, yes, yes. Barbara, “The soul has been here all along”. It’s not that we’re waiting to become enlightened. We already are. It’s just being in that realization of it. And yes for each of us it will be totally unique. But one thing we will all have in common is we will know without a doubt what we have kept pretty much at arms length. And when I say know, I mean experience consistently going forward. Not just as a concept. It’s like an unquestionable knowing. No longer trying to know, or trusting in something outside ourself. But just BEING it.

    Beautifully said Maria. You have a way of putting into words what I feel but cannot quite articulate in words.

    I have decided to stay and enjoy life in this human form upon my realization…whenever that may be. I deserve it, darn it! And so it is💖

    I sometimes muse to myself how crazy I would really seem if I had these conversations with any of the people I know. It is a solitary journey for sure. Thank you for your blog:)

    1. Such a great place for kindreds…….. ❤ Thanks Maria for bringing the crazies together. hahahaha

      AND we're proud of it, eh? Although I guess I really can only speak for myself. ha

      love you dearest Sistar Maria and I love us all!!!!

    2. Thanks, Joanna, I’m so glad it resonates. And I’m happy you’re staying and tell you what, we can throw our own shindig to celebrate it when the time comes!

      And, yeah, I agree, trying to have this conversation with most folks would not go well.

      Joanna: “Hi Bob, how are the kids? How am I? glad you asked. I’m doing well. Just trying to decide what outfit to wear to my realization. What’s my realization? Well, it’s when I shift from being predominantly human mind focused to predominantly Eternal Self Focused.

      Bob: “…ya know, those Christmas lights aren’t going to put themselves away. Gotta run. Bye.”

  6. Joanna

    Yes it certainly is Elizabeth! I AM proud of it too. Wouldn’t have it any other way, that’s for sure! Love to us all!!🌹🌺
