The Grief of Awakening: Shedding the Layers of Illusion

Many people are starting to have what is often called “spiritual awakening. Maybe that is you, or maybe you are wondering if that is what is happening to you. In fact, many people are experiencing this type of shift in spiritual awareness as part of the massive energies being felt now on the planet. Awakening generally means that you are identifying with your higher consciousness, with the understanding that you are connected to all that is in existence, and that the concerns of the Ego, or the lower self, are no longer running your life anymore.

Another common experience in awakening is seeing that reality is not what you thought it was, and you begin to see through illusions and into truth about the essence of interconnection, love and power that lies within each human on Earth.

When going through this process, though, it can feel lonely and disorienting. We ebb and flow through stages much like going through the process of grieving (denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance). It can lead us questioning our surroundings, relationships, careers and basically every aspect of our lives. We see the world differently now, and that can mean huge changes in how we experience it. Join us for a talk at The Enlightenment Expo or some thoughts and a short “light expansion” guided meditation, in which Rachel Horton White, an intuitive counselor with Soulful Work Intuitive Consulting will share her own experiences with awakening to a new reality in her life, and the journey that it has taken her on. She will also discuss what has worked for her, and what might also work for you, as we move through shedding the layers of Ego(and of social conditioning), connecting with others in relationships, and ultimately coming into the flow of our soul purposes in this lifetime. She will share, in a handout for you to take home, tips on raising personal vibrations and integrating this new consciousness into everyday life.

Saturday, May 5th from 3-3:45 pm at the Fireside Inn and Suite, 81 Riverside Street, Portland Maine. Free with $5 admission to the Enlightenment Expo. Rachel will also be giving Tarot and Akashic Records readings all day at the Expo.
