The Awakening

Over the last six years that I have been a member of EC I have been asked several times what (The Awakening) actually means. Usually I write a long winded explanation that satisfies me but I'm never quite sure about the person I wrote it for? And recently I read a perfect one sentence explanation of what The Awakening truly represents.

The Awakening is when the Paranormal becomes the Normal!

That's it. Why I had such a difficult time with this is beyond me!

For me, awakening was becoming fully present and having my senses heightened (aka: truly "awake"). The paranormal didn't creep in right away...it was a gradual process. At least, that is my experience :)

But your answer is concise and general, more for someone who hasn't experienced it to be able to comprehend it. Thanks for sharing!

Hermes.V: @lotusfly, how did you know you were fully present?

Hi Hermes,

When I became fully present, I noticed the sparkles in the sidewalk, the birds chirping in the trees, the wind blowing leaves on the ground... My thinking reduced, I felt like I was taking in more stimuli (noticing more) from my environment, while still being self-aware. What was going on around me held my attention more than my thoughts, so I noticed my thinking less and became one with my environment.

I go back and forth these days...from my mind (I'm a writer and use the computer a lot) to my environment. But my thoughts are no longer disruptive. I have control over if I want to ponder something or if I want to rest my mind. It's really rather nice :)

I was awakened through a grounding technique in a group setting with the help of a medium. I had never done (or known how to) ground before. I was shown a child's drawing of a tree, with the roots and all, and was told to imagine myself as that tree with roots growing from my feet into the ground and was told to breathe and cycle my breath/energy from the top of my head, through my body, into my feet, into the ground, and back around again. It was all very peaceful and I was glad I was shown how to ground! Then the medium touched my shoulders and helped me to ground further and when she did, I felt an energy blockage clear from my body. I was in a state of bliss afterwards and didn't want to talk or anything...just wanted to be with the feeling of inner peace :)

I now meditate/ground daily, though I feel I live in a state of presence. It's stress-free most of the time.

That was my awakening experience, which happened over a year ago (8/26/15). I was not the same since and it's been quite the journey from that moment. I joined the Empath Community in December 2015, I believe.

Thanks for asking! I hope that answers your question! :)

Glad to see you back in the community...you have been missed. You always had a lot of good things to say. That is a great one line analogy for awaking 😉 Thank you for sharing

Thanks Cat-whisperer! I never really left, just having a harder time with new format and enough time to actually participate!
