Householder Enlightenment Leadership. A Guest Post from ISABELLA C.

"Euwww, I'm awake for this? I mean, I'm glad to be awake. Grateful. But...."
“Euwww, I’m awake for this? I mean, I’m glad to be awake. Grateful. But….”

When a blog comment moves me to tears, I think it deserves to be elevated to a guest post (if possible). That happened today.

We were discussing how Enlightenment doesn’t necesssarily solve all human problems. And how difficulties can even arise post-Enlightenment that seem, and feel, very personal. Yet they may result from a leadership role in collective consciousness.

In this new Age of Awakening, millions of people may be moving into Enlightenment. Doing this as householders, too. Rather than following time-hallowed models, suitable for earlier development of consciousness at Earth School, when the path to Self-Realization was deemed to require the renunciate way of life.

Over at Does Enlightenment Break Your World Wide Open?, Blog-Buddy SARAH asked about “the idea that pioneers/leaders of a group are taking on karma for that group beyond their own personal karma.” CONTINUE READING

Enlightenment has become a lively topic here once more, thanks to a recent guest post. News from KYLIE, Transformation in the Age of Awakening. Wonderful flows of information happen here, at this informal blog community.

In Comment 12, Blog-Buddy RACHEL asked, “I am curious as to whether you continued to feel the need to have cords of attachement cut, post-enlightenment?”

Like KYLIE, ISABELLA is another active member of this online community who has moved into Enlightenment. She is also a grad of the Mentoring Program in Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES). ISABELLA began to respond as you will see in her Comment 13, over where RACHEL was writing.

The rest is below, turned into a Guest Post. My headings and links, ISABELLA’s wisdom.

The Worst Misunderstanding — a Common LIE — about Enlightenment

There are so many illusions about Enlightenment. So many of them are really quite ridiculous and stand in stark contrast to my day-to-day experience.

One of them is that once you are Enlightened, your growing as a person is done.

Frankly this illusion, this LIE, makes me quite angry and impassioned. CONTINUE READING

Does Enlightenment Break Your World Wide Open?

Just how realistic are your ideas about Enlightenment?
Just how realistic are your ideas about Enlightenment?

“Enlightenment will break my world right open.”

That’s what I thought long ago. Might you have some equally fantastic ideas in mind?

If you have been seeking spiritual self-realization, or Enlightenment, you probably do.

I can’t speak to your unique version. Because each person’s ideals are different.

However I can tell you this: Whenever you do cross over the threshold into Enlightenment, it will be the perfect experience for you. Although probably quite different from what you were expecting.

Just as your life up until this very day… has been perfect preparation. Even a necessary part of your journey! In retrospect, many things you thought were obstacles were really gifts for your spiritual evolution. CONTINUE READING

Three Post-New-Age skill sets in Rosetree Energy Spirituality
Three Post-New-Age skill sets in Rosetree Energy Spirituality

BlogBuddies, little did I anticipate this, when opening up the thread for Age of Awakening NEWS! I was planning to celebrate shifts in collective consciousness, encouraging news in the realm of objective reality. And I wished to explain where I was coming from as a Post-New-Age writer, teacher, and helper.

LILIAN had already given insightful perspective on her sessions of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) at What Are Energetic Frozen Blocks? Then, to my surprise,  KIRA and KYLIE stepped forward with success stories about how they had been growing since the start of this Age of Awakening. And those success stories do seem to be related to this era. So these stories did fit with the theme of Age of Awakening NEWS.

It is beginning seem to me, Blog-Buddies, that many of the energy healing techniques and energy reading techniques that helped so many of us in as New Age… were part of a shift into this time.

Whereas RES skills are more designed to work now. They are Post-New-Age skills. Appropriate since humanity is no longer preparing for an Aquarian Age but living it. Admittedly that’s a strange concept to wrap my head around. Yet, for me, this seems to fit.

What Does NOT Count as Technique Time — 11 Exceptions to the General Rule

Celebrate Father's Day today OR any holiday of your choice. Celebrate in a HUMAN way.
Celebrate Father’s Day today OR any holiday of your choice. Celebrate in a HUMAN way.

Blog-Buddies, I’m so glad to be explaining this last chunk of great importance to those of us who limit our Technique Time to 20 Daily Minutes, Tops. As described in yesterday’s article.

What is Technique Time? It’s all about voluntary positioning of consciousness.

During Technique Time a person positions awareness away from objective reality or surface thoughts and feelings… in order to improve himself or herself.

It’s a movement away from human vibrational frequencies towards Divine vibrational frequencies or — most commonly — the person winds up with awareness positioned squarely at astral vibrational frequencies.

Here are 11 things that could happen during a 24-hour period. None of them would count as your official Technique Time.

Notice the reasons given, however. Each of these exceptions is being named in a context, or a manner of doing a particular activity.

Technique Time Exception #1: Let’s Hear It for Insomnia

All that happens between going to bed for the night and getting out of bed to begin your new day….

If you have insomnia, that could be your lucky opportunity. Because you can pray or visualize or do whatever spiritual activity you like to your heart’s content.

In terms of states of consciousness, you’re moving in and out of waking/sleeping/dreaming. Enjoy that potentially glorious time! CONTINUE READING

How the Empath Gift of Spiritual Oneness Helps Me

Last blog post I shared one of my worst nightmares ever, connected to the pesky side of Spiritual Oneness. Today we have a happier topic.

Now, what’s so wonderful about Spiritual Oneness?

Five different answers spring to mind immediately. Totally easily. Just the obvious examples, Blog-Buddies.

Mostly in today’s article,  I’m describing what it is like to have an empath gift that is habitually turned off in everyday life. (Through empath skills, not stifling yourself.)

Even turned off, each empath gift can be highly informative. And, on occasion, if Skilled Empath Merge is done, that gift really lights up deep knowing.

1. The personal fun

Bach, Gerard Manley Hopkins; Bette Midler and Beverly Sills and Gustavo Dudamel — there are so many composers, performers, writers, dancers and other artists who bring alive their personal quality of connection to God.

Then that artist spreads it around, conveys it. Either in the foreground or background. CONTINUE READING

Comparing Skilled Empath Merge to Everyday Life in Enlightenment

SANDRA HAERING’s recent guest post about Enlightenment as a skilled empath was thought provoking. She sure got me thinking… about the relationship between gaining empath skills and moving into Enlightenment.

Empath skills aren’t part of the usual conversation about Awakening or Enlightenment. But since when was this blog concerned with the usual conversation? About anything?

As an Enlightenment Coach, I treasure my relationships with the folks on my special Enlightenment Life List of people from this community .

  • All have moved into Enlightenment since we began working together, one way or another, directly or through my books.
  • Not all are empaths. But those who are empaths did become skilled before moving into Enlightenment.
  • By contrast, Blog-Buddy DAVID moved into Enlightenment decades before he learned about empath skills (one reason why I was so moved that he wrote one of the 10 personal stories from empaths at the end of Quick & Easy book for basics of Empath Empowerment® and also in the expanded edition of “The Empowered Empath.”)

Empath skills as I teach them sure aren’t required for making a shift into Awakeness. But those skills can’t hurt, not if you’re eager to gain Enlightenment.

Blog-Buddies, maybe you’re curious. What’s it like, doing a Skilled Empath Merge? How does this compare with everyday life in Enlightenment? CONTINUE READING

How Becoming a Skilled Empath Helped Me on the Path to Enlightenment. A Guest Post by SANDRA HAERING

I’m a member of that growing group of people in Householder Enlightenment.  It was never my objective to become Enlightened.  I did have a goal for decades, however, which was: “To live a life of love in thought, word, and deed.”

How self-denying; how holy!  At least that was how I interpreted that goal.  In retrospect, I was probably aiming for a type of Enlightenment more typical of religious devotees secreted away in convents, monasteries or caves.

The problem was that I didn’t live in a cave, but amongst many family, friends and strangers.  I was also an unskilled empath.

A Dangerous Combination

That is a dangerous combination, a person who:

  • Personally feels everyone’s physical and emotional pain, and
  • Believes she needs to love and help them.

A comment today from JNANA included a sentence that really moved me. Two of the candidates she proposed had been successful at making it onto my Enlightenment Life List. From her beautiful mystic’s heart JNANA wrote:

Delighted to learn that Kathryn Stockett is enlightened. That was some book she wrote! And glad to have Swami Sri Gnanananda Giri grace the list of the enlightened as well.

The bliss of true knowledge [Enlightenment] it is, and Deeper Perception gives that to us too.”

JNANA didn’t just move me. She made me think, inspiring today’s inquiry that I’ll be sharing with you.

Does deeper perception bring us true knowledge?

Yes, it can. It is true knowledge about a person energetically. CONTINUE READING
