Challenging Energies

Happy Easter everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying their Easter Sunday! Wherever you are in the world – I wish you a peaceful day! Now onto today’s blog post – on of all things – challenging energies that we are currently experiencing.

As a little backstory – my awakening happened in earnest starting back in 2014. During those next few years, after my Kundalini was activated, I experienced the process where the energies start burning through all of your chakras forcing you to look at yourself, your life and open your eyes to a lot of different things.

As I eventually learned over the years, although my process was triggered by Kundalini, which is a more intense process, everyone is experiencing energy ‘upgrades’ by the incoming photonic energy which I talk about here.

Spiritual Awakening – Why? Our Place in the Universe – Heather Burket

This energy has been reaching the planet and has been increasing over the years. This energy is bringing darkness to light – the Age of Aquarius. This energy forces people to look at themselves and address their shadows. Many of us have been doing the healing work for many years. I personally have done pretty much most healing modalities from traditional therapy, EFT, acupuncture, Tachyon chamber, crystal beds, healing sound bowls and many more.

I am aware of this process and so when I see headlines about people acting out, people killing themselves and other atrocities, I am aware of the intensity of these energies on people and those who have not done the inner work. I also know that everyone has their own soul path and plan and what they want to experience. I’ve observed people driving on the highway like they are in a Hollywood movie, and they are immune to crashing. Yesterday, I had someone in a very small vehicle, come out of nowhere, pass the car behind me to barely get behind me before almost crashing head on into another vehicle. And then I see them wave their hands around in the air frustrated. As the lanes expanded to 2, they proceeded to speed up and race off. This is just one example I’ve seen where people have been completely unhinged, but I see people driving like it’s a full moon almost everyday weaving in and out of traffic.

I send them love and ask Archangel Michael to protect them. Not sure if that is crossing a boundary or not, but I figure it can’t hurt. These energies are challenging and the outer changes, restrictions, and everything that has come about in the last few years really has put a lot of people in less than stellar mental health.

Even for me, I think that I have done so much work and yet sometimes I feel like I am like one of those cartoons where I am sliding into home base, except for I’m bumbling and tripping along the way even though I am so close….

I remember a year or so ago, one of my friends had recommended this I think it was a 6-week, weekly audio course that used light language. Light language in case you haven’t heard of it, is language that people can speak, that sounds like gibberish basically (lol) that is somewhat channeled through them that affects your DNA. So, there isn’t really a translation to it. Anyway, in one session, I had the great idea to hold my powerful sentient plasma quartz (a very powerful quartz crystal – I talk about in this blog post

My Top 5 Crystal Experiences – Tropica Exotica, LLC

while listening to light language.)

So shortly after that, as I was going to sleep, my body jerked like I had been hit by a cattle prod, which is one of the effects of Kundalini energy – that is not regulated properly. I had experienced it a few times, so I knew that was what it was. (Other people experience beautiful hand movements called mudras, but not me…apparently.) Then, during my sleep, I woke up at one point and started to experience these weird light movements in my head? Kind of hard to explain, but it almost reminded me of when you turn on a robot or something and all these lights start going on and moving around in these patterns. It was very odd. However, I thought it must be something good – maybe something was activating? I don’t know.

However, the next day, I remember feeling like I was about to have a nervous breakdown. I remember walking up my stairs, thinking I can’t do this anymore. I think it’s interesting how I remember experiencing extreme emotional upset, but afterwards, it is really hard to remember that pain, but I know it was extremely difficult.

Well luckily, the person that was giving the course talked about just how hard it was for them as well after that last session. Even though I felt like I had done so much inner work – I still felt completely taken aback by just how much emotional pain I was experiencing, and I honestly didn’t even know the cause from doing that light language healing. I can only assume it was some buried pain that the light language help dredge up and release.

Fast forward to today and the energies that are coming through now are STILL difficult. Over the years I’ve learned a lot of things about myself regarding being sensitive to energy. One is that I am an empath, I can’t believe I didn’t realize that until so late in life. Seems like everyone knows of that term now.

The other is that I found out that I had been transitioning to a Crystal Aura the last few years (Transition to Crystal Aura – Heather Burket) which makes me an uber sensitive person.

I have learned how to do energy clearing practices and found that it has helped, however, I have to be very disciplined and do it every day, and I don’t always stay disciplined.

Recently, I’ve noticed myself feeling emotions that I don’t even think are mine, and it has been difficult to tell exactly where they are coming from and why, but they have been challenging to say the least. I had heard one psychic person recommend wearing a hat to shield your crown chakra and third eye from picking up on others’ energies and so I tried it and I can tell you it has helped! As I was having all these weird, anxious, quite discombobulated emotions, I actually saw a visualization of two almost cartoon like characters being animated and acting aggravated at each other. I have no idea sometimes what I experience, but all I can say, is that it was not MY energy – lol!

Being aware of my energy sensitivity and what I personally need to stay within my OWN energy has been extremely important lately especially with all the emotions of the collective consciousness. I don’t stay too much in tune with astrology, but I do think that some of these aspects potentially could be aggravating people in general, along with the photonic energy that is coming in. Additionally, there has been a lot of solar flare activity from the sun. I follow the Planetary K Index posted on NASA’s website and it’s been reading quite high lately – red!

In other words, I think the energy is pretty chaotic and intense right now!! So, if you are having a challenging time, you are not the only one. All I can say is that now more than ever it is important to get out your energy toolbox and start using those tools!

Here’s a list of things that I would recommend:

  1. Epsom salt bath – this will remove negative energy and any energies that you may have picked up that aren’t yours.
  2. Energy clearing practices – I would do both in the morning and evening
  3. Wear energy protecting crystals – Black tourmaline, rainbow fluorite
  4. Wear grounding crystals – hematite, black tourmaline, red jasper, smoky quartz
  5. Wear a hat that covers your head
  6. Drink a lot of water – hydration is always good to help your body process these incoming energies
  7. Get plenty of sleep
  8. Exercise – even 30 minutes of walking a day can help
  9. Journal – writing helps me tremendously to process my emotions
  10. Don’t take anyone’s words or behaviors personally. Just be an observer and understand that people are having a hard time and that they are in pain if they are lashing out.
  11. Be out in nature when you can – take a hike, go to the beach, or a park.
  12. Try grounding – walk barefoot – connect to the Earth

But most importantly, take time for yourself away from others and practice self-care, whatever that means to you. It’s important to detach and focus on your own energy and become aware of what is going on internally. And if you have to – seek out professional care if you feel like you need that support.

These energies have been intense, and it hasn’t been an easy ride at all, especially if you are sensitive to energy. The good thing is that the more that we are able to allow in these energies, the lighter that we will feel. And I have been feeling that as well lately too. Last week I couldn’t feel my physical body at all as I was lying on my bed – it’s a pretty trippy feeling! So, hang in there, it’s a process and these are tough times. Practice self-care above all else and don’t beat yourself up if you are having a hard time these days.

In love, light and gratitude,

Heather

Empath Stories

This is my last article in my 3-part blog/video posts regarding being an Empath. In case you haven’t yet read my other article or seen my other video, you can check them out here:

Tips for Empaths – video only – you can just check out my YouTube Channel “Tropica Exotica”

In my previous article “Being an Empath”, I discussed one of the experiences that you may have is picking up on other people’s energy and their emotions – and not realizing it. This actually still freaks me out a little bit to be honest. So, I wanted to share a few of my personal experiences so that you can hopefully learn from my experiences. This was probably happening all my life up to this point, to some degree, however, I think because of my spiritual awakening, the abilities to pick up on other people’s energy increased. And I think as we continue to grow spiritually that we will naturally be more sensitive to energy. So, it’s important to learn about this concept.

Empath Story No.1

When it comes to picking up on ONE particular individual’s energy, I have to base it on my own personal experience. For me, it has been: 1) someone that I am close to, 2) someone who is also psychic (has psychic abilities) 3) possibly someone is not emotionally healthy – lol! And honestly, I kind of feel uncomfortable saying that, but that is what this first story is about. So, here’s what I remember. This was several years ago at a work environment at a very stressful time at the company. I remember standing up in my dining room feeling this very frantic, vulnerable, shaky, “I can’t do this anymore” feeling – which is totally not like me at all. At some point, I remember talking to my partner at the time who talked me through what I was feeling. I don’t remember the details of the conversation exactly, but basically, we discussed how there was one individual where I was working who had a reputation for impacting others – and not in a good way. People were fearful of them, were glad when they were not around – just in general someone who was not well liked. They explained how sometimes emotionally unhealthy people can impact others, and people like me, who are sensitive, may end up taking on these emotions and not be aware of it. They also explained how once the person who has been taking on these emotions, realizes it and releases it, that that “ENERGY” will move onto the next person. So as I began to process this, and actually get mad about it – both mad at that person and mad at myself for being a sucker and picking up on this energy, then I did release this and I could tell I felt better ONCE I realized that the emotions that I was feeling were not my own. Apparently, this is a well- known phenomenon in the mental health world.

Well, lo and behold, that is what happened. So, once I realized this and released these frantic emotions that I was experiencing, apparently another co-worker took on this energy (of course another empath). This person ended up in the hospital actually. They became so distraught that they were throwing up and not able to take their necessary medication and ended up in the hospital. When they came back to work, I explained what I thought might have happened and they were taken aback, but open to this explanation.

There are a few things that stood out to me the most from this experience. The main one is that the emotions that I had been feeling were actually very foreign to me. And that was one of the key learning experiences to me to help me identify if what I am feeling is truly MY OWN emotions or someone else’s. The best way to describe it would be frantic, shaky and very, very vulnerable. The other thing is I was frankly shocked at this whole concept that it actually CAN happen and that I allowed this to happen and could have kept on going through it and made decisions based on emotions that weren’t even mine! This was truly an eye-opening experience and I was thankful that I had a partner who could help me understand this.

Empath Story No. 2

This one deals with a Twin Flame connection that served as a spiritual catalyst for me several years ago. If you want to read more about that, check out these articles below:

Kundalini Activation – Psychic Experiences

https://heatherburket.com/2019/05/22/kundalini-activation-psychic-experiences/

The Twin Flame connection is a unique connection that involves a lot of telepathic and psychic communication. And at the time, I had never heard of the concept, so I was completely thrown off by the connection. At the time of this particular event, I had not spoken to him in over 6 months. So, one month, all of sudden I had a really hard time sleeping. I was experiencing a lot of anxiety that was spilling over into my sleep. In fact, my sleep was so disturbed that I had to take off several workdays that month. Additionally, I had purchased different types of OTC sleeping pills and experimenting with them and dosages to see which ones would work (not wake up groggy).Finally, at the end of this month, I received an email from my Twin Flame letting me know that they had been let go from their job (where I also worked). I was completely thrown off. That was their last day and I didn’t even get to say good-bye. However, ‘coincidentally’ a few days later, I went down to get a coffee and ran into them. They told me that they had been told at the BEGINNING of that month that they were being let go at the end of the month. They told me about the stress that they had been going through getting ready to move and get things lined out for their future.

Sometime afterwards, I began to think that maybe my sleep-related issues were related to them and picking up their stress and anxiety from losing their job? A few months later, I ended up doing a psychic reading with someone that I’ve since had multiple readings with and completely trust their abilities. A lot of times, newly awakened people, seek out psychics because they have so many experiences that they don’t understand and need guidance on. So, I would save up a list of questions to ask once I scheduled a reading. I asked them if I had been picking up on their energy and that was the reason why I was not sleeping at all that month? They told me that ‘yes’ we were actually playing ‘empath ping pong’ is how they described it and said that it is not fun. They said that the TF would get stressed out and basically I would pick up on their stressful energy and then I was stressed out because of my own struggles with my personal relationship and send that energy over to my TF and they would pick it up. I found that very interesting to say the least! I was actually very glad to have found an explanation as to why I was SOOOO exhausted because my sleep was so out of whack. It was truly a frustrating time.

Empath Story No. 3

This story has to do with a friend who has psychic abilities. I was driving into work one day, very early – like 6 AM and I had just been thinking about how everything was going okay. I was in a good state of mind, when suddenly, I just had this feeling like “I can’t do this anymore” and I started to have anxiety and dread going into work. I was literally about to turn around and drive back home. Then, the thought came to me, ‘wait a minute, I JUST started to have this frantic feeling, when I was fine just 5 minutes ago.’ And also, I realized that I had that same sinking feeling as I had in the first story – this frantic type feeling that was not ME. So, as I continued to drive, I started to do energy clearing work and just imagined white light coming down into my body and I believe I asked whatever energy that is not mine to leave my energetic space immediately. I started to feel better immediately. As I continued to drive down the road, I started to think about where that energy was coming from? What person’s energy was I picking up on? And then I thought, I wonder if it was one friend in particular. I know that we were both more on the psychic side, so wondered if maybe somehow, I was just picking up on her energy because she and I were probably just both more tuned in.

Later in the day, I contacted this person and asked them if they had, by chance, had some sort of stressful, anxiety causing situation to happen to them that morning? They said yes, and they explained to me what happened. I am not going to share the story that they shared with me, because it was personal, but it was definitely a situation that would have caused stress and anxiety. And I told them that I had picked up on their energy at that same time.

The Lessons

I’m sharing these experiences because if you are new to understanding that you are an empath, you may learn from my stories. Basically, if you are sensitive to energy, it is possible that you may have emotions that are not yours. Sometimes you can determine WHO you are picking up this energy from, but that won’t always be the case. Sometimes you have to do some detective work. And other times, I believe that I pick up on collective energy, that is not necessarily connected to one person. I’ll share one example on that. The other day, a hurricane was in the Gulf of Mexico – a category 4, which is a very strong hurricane with wind speeds of 140 mph. The meteorologists had said that it was going into Louisiana, even though it looked like it was headed for Texas. I started to have this foreboding feeling and I wasn’t for sure what was causing it. So, I grabbed one of my large pieces of black tourmaline and held it in my hand. If you don’t know, black tourmaline is a very well-known powerful crystal that assists in removing and dispelling negative energy. I sat and meditated and began to ask myself questions 1) is this energy I’m picking up from others fears? 2) is this feeling because I KNOW that the meteorologists are wrong, and it’s headed this way? As I sat with these questions, I began to lose the emotion of the foreboding feeling and began to feel a sense of calm again. So, the lesson for me was if I start to have a ‘run-away’ emotion, that is not within my normal range of emotion and matches what I am experiencing, then I start to question that maybe this energy is not mine.

For me, in particular, it seems that this ‘panicky, frantic’ feeling is not normal for me, so if I start to feel that way, then I realize that maybe this emotion is not mine.

The other thing that I have to talk about is the concept of boundaries. Boundaries, to me, are a few things and in this instance, it’s about maintaining your own energetic boundary. So, if you are picking up on other people’s emotions, it is also because you are ‘open’ emotionally and perhaps creating stronger energetic boundaries would be in order. I’m not an expert, by any means, on this topic, but as a result of these experiences, I have definitely begun implementing practices such as the ones that I mentioned in the article “Tips for Empaths” and that has helped me tremendously.

I sometimes wonder just how many empaths out there are experiencing anxiety and stress because they are simply picking up on other people’s energy and just don’t realize it?

This is not knowledge that we are born with, so we have to learn. And each of us has our own path to follow. For me, I know that these 3 instances taught me a LOT and as my most recent experience just happened, I’ve learned to quickly identify and address emotional distress that I’m experiencing that is unnecessary.

Being an Empath

Most people have heard of the term “Empath” and what it means. I think learning that I was an Empath has probably been one of the most important things that I’ve learned about myself on my spiritual journey. While most people consider being an Empath a ‘gift’, a lot of us would probably consider it a curse. In simple terms, an Empath is someone who is sensitive to energy. It’s referred to as “clairsentience’ and is considered a psychic ability.

However, everyone has this ability, it’s just a matter of knowing what it is and becoming more internally aware.

I don’t think that I am that different from other Empaths in that we all have suffered from bouts of fatigue. I only learned that I was an Empath about 5 years ago. But before that, I had dealt with fatigue and did not understand why. I went numerous times to the doctor complaining that I knew something was wrong with me and demanded that they run tests for everything (which they never did) and in the end, the normal blood work panels would turn out normal and they would just tell me that I was suffering from stress.

Understanding Fatigue

Now when I’m tired, I look at multiple factors to try and find the cause. Is it diet, stress, lifestyle or is it from being energetically drained due to being an Empath?

Over the past few years I have paid more attention to my overall state of being and have made a conscious effort to understand the cause. To illustrate this point, when it comes to diet, there are a few things I’ve noticed. When quinoa became popular I tried cooking it. I noticed I would get a headache and immediately have to take a nap. Eventually I connected the dots and read up on it. If you do not properly wash the quinoa first, the saponins on it can have this effect.

I’ve also noticed some types of wheat bread – most likely due to gluten, make me super tired. I can’t even keep my eyes open. Recently, I tried a plant-based ‘sausage’ because I used to love kielbasa, but trying to be healthy, had tried an alternative. In the end, I had a severe reaction including extreme fatigue. The main ingredient was – you guessed it – gluten! And of course, everyone knows how after eating any heavy meal – you will feel fatigue. So those are just a few examples of being more conscious and aware of your energy and by paying close attention to your outer circumstances you can learn to decipher possible sources of fatigue.

Fatigue can also be due to stress and lifestyle choices. When trying to understand my overall energy, I always look to what is going on with my life. Am I under a lot of personal stress due to life circumstances? Have I been taking care of myself? Am I eating properly, getting enough sleep, making time for self-care?

Sensitive to Energy

When it comes to being sensitive to other people’s energy, it has been quite a learning experience to say the least! I’ll delve into specific examples in the next article. But in this article, I am just going to talk about what I’ve come to understand about energy exchanges. For my own personal perspective, I would bucket being sensitive to energy into 2 main categories:

1) People

2) External influences

Now, when it comes to being sensitive to other people’s energy – I would break these experiences down even further into:

  • One-on-one
  • Multiple people (crowds)
  • Unknown sources

People

One-on-one

I think most people are aware that when we interact with different people that we can either come away from that experience feeling upbeat and uplifted, or feel totally drained. However, I don’t know if people who experience the latter understand the dynamic of what’s going on. And frankly, it took me a long time to finally pay attention and start to be more conscious of my interactions so that they are on par rather than draining.

For one-on-one situations, these can be with partners, friends, co-workers, family or even strangers. In personal relationships, and I can speak from personal experience here, you may not even realize that you are the one with high energy, and your other half is relying on you to lift them up. It may not be something that you are even consciously aware of. Once I had my Kundalini activation in 2014, I started to become an observer in my relationship and I realized that I was giving away my energy to the point that I was always feeling drained. I also began to observe other couples and would see an equal exchange and began to become more aware of this energy dynamic between individuals.

As Empaths, we are naturally good listeners and energy suckers seem to just hone in on us. They blather and blather away while you actively listen (because you are also nice and polite). But actively listening takes a LOT of energy. And so that person leaves and you come away from the interaction feeling drained and used. Here’s my perspective on this situation now. Once you become aware that they don’t actually care about you – because they aren’t actually asking you any questions, or even listening to what you are saying because they just keep on talking over you, then enough is enough. I have honestly felt that some of these people might as well just talk to a wall because they are not interested in engaging with you. So once you start to have that realization, your attitude changes and it’s time to set up some boundaries. Since I’ve become more aware of this whole energy dynamic, once I start to pick up on this when engaging with someone, I get out of the situation.

At the end of the day, it’s about honoring yourself enough to know that your time and energy are precious and you don’t need it wasted on someone who doesn’t care.

Crowds

Crowds are Empaths worst nightmare. And in fact, there are a lot of memes out there about empaths and Christmas time because those are crazy crowds and it can be just outright hell with so many people out and about.

When there are a lot of people giving off their own energy, and you are energy sensitive, you can start to see how this would be a problem. Just the sheer volume of energy is what makes this scenario difficult.

Airports are the worst! At airports I do my best to find a restaurant with a booth to isolate myself if I can. In the Lima Peru airport last year, I thought I was about to have an anxiety attack because we were all so close together going through one long line and it was all I could do to keep it together.

One day I volunteered at a food bank with a bunch of people and I was in bed the entire next day. Sometimes it is just too much.

I do my best to avoid crowds. I never go to the mall unless I absolutely have to, and then I get in and get out. I actually do my grocery shopping at 6 AM as soon as the store opens to avoid crowds there as well. As I’m transitioning to a crystal aura (as I wrote in another blog post) my energy sensitivity has increased even more, so I really try to minimize my exposure to large groups of people when I can.

Unknown/Long distance

So this one is really odd and I will save the details for another post because the stories are quite interesting. But one thing that I’ve become aware of, is to discern when I have feelings that are mine vs. someone else’s energy. What I’ve learned is to ask myself – is there anything going on in my life that justifies what I’m feeling right now? If the answer is ‘no’ then I immediately work on releasing that energy from my field. I have learned that there is a type of energy that I have experienced that is very ‘panicky’ is the best way to describe it. But I’ll save more of this for a later post.

Outside sources

Schumann Resonance

As the Earth moves through the photon belt, the Earth is being bombarded with energy. If you are an Empath – surprise – you are the lucky one that is feeling this the most. Although this energy is impacting everyone, empaths will be more sensitive to it. The amount of energy is reflected through the Schumann Resonance. The normal Earth vibration is 7.83 Hz. Over the last few years, we’ve had peaks up to 120 Hz! There are periods called “white-outs” where the energy is so high over a period of time. This energy will either make you super tired or super energetic. What I’ve noticed also is I will feel the energy before it actually registers on the chart.

Full moons/new moons

This is something that I’ve become more aware of over the last year or so. I definitely do not sleep well at all during these times. From what I understand, these are portals that open up, so there is an energetic pull on the Earth during the full moon. It’s over my head, but it definitely impacts me.

Locations

This is something that I’ve always been aware of. We used to refer to it as ‘picking up vibes.’ I have always picked up on energy in various locations. I remember one time visiting Nuevo Laredo, Mexico with a friend and I felt this melancholy energy emanating from this town. It was very odd, as I had never experienced that before. And of course, going to sacred sites – such as Tulum, I’ve felt this unexplainable sense of sacredness, mysterious, profound energy. A few years ago, I visited a location called “Peace Valley” in Arkansas – and it was indeed extremely peaceful! So as an Empath, you will notice your ability to pick up energy from people as well as locations.

Learning that you are an Empath is one thing, navigating it is another. As I mentioned earlier, it was the single most important thing that I learned about myself on my journey as it has such a huge impact to my overall well-being. Now that I am aware of this, I actively work to manage my interactions with others and do my best to make sure I establish boundaries and maintain a healthy emotional and physical state of being.

Transition to Crystal Aura

I thought I’d share a little information about what I have learned about myself from doing psychic readings.

Auras are our energetic signature. Some people can see them. I probably could if I tried, but I honestly don’t spend too much time practicing this. From what I understand, there are various different colors and those colors have different meanings (and these can vary from one person to another). So, you may come across different information from different people depending on how they interpret the colors.

The person that I resonate with the most regarding reading auras is Pamela Aaralyn. In fact, her website used to be called aura reader.

If you have been in the spiritual community, you have probably heard of the term “Indigos” and “Crystals.” And recently, the term “Rainbow” has come up regarding groups of souls that have certain colors and associated traits.

When I heard of the term Indigos – that always seemed to me to mean these were the system busters, the people who didn’t agree or align with the status-quo. I regarded them as leaders, who were more aware of the BS in which our typical lives unfold. I think they question our typical lifestyle of trying to acquire a bunch of crap and work for years at unfulfilling jobs. And I believe a lot of these people were waiting for the systems to fall, and it hasn’t yet, so they are rebelling and not necessarily going after the typical jobs and/or they choose their own path – one that is more in alignment with their soul. Maybe they decide to work some, then travel. They may also believe in having a simpler lifestyle – not just settling down into a large house that they are tied to for 30 years.

And then there are the Crystals. These are the sensitive souls. They are the ones that are here to help heal. In fact, Crystals are the most powerful healing type of souls because they can absorb and transmute other people’s energy. This may be controversial, and my intention is never to offend anyone, but I believe that a lot of the individuals that have been classified as ‘autistic’ are actually some of these highly evolved souls known as Crystals. I believe that they come into this world and this world is so different, so low energy as 3D and it’s almost like a shock to their system on a lot of different levels. From sounds, noises, chemicals, as well as the violence that exists on our planet.

Back in 2016, when I did one of my first readings, Magenta Pixie told me I was born an Indigo and was transitioning to Crystal. At the time, I really didn’t know what that meant. I had heard of these terms, but I didn’t understand the whole concept of transitioning.

Later, I did a reading with Pamela Aaralyn and she told me the same thing, except she said I was an “Aquamarine” aura transitioning to Crystal. She also said that I would either stay 50/50 or I would completely transition to Crystal. She also referred me to an article that she had written called “The Great Spiritual Awakening.” I actually didn’t read that article until sometime later – but once I did, it made so much sense!

https://pamelaaaralyn.com/articles/great-spiritual-awakening-of-humanity/

According to Pamela, there was this overall plan for the Indigos to come in, blaze these new paths, and then the Crystals would come in, and help heal.

However, when the Crystals incarnated, a lot of them were not surviving to carry out the collective mission. So, the plan changed, for a lot of the Indigos, Aquamarines and others to transition to Crystal auras in order to keep the overall plan going.

What it feels like

Okay, so now I thought I’d talk a little bit about my own personal experience of what this has meant to me. I know I have always been someone who has been sensitive emotionally, but I’ve always been able to hide my emotions on the outside. I always kind of defined myself as a Scorpio with a poker face. I knew I was more sensitive on the inside – I just wouldn’t let people see that side of me. I would contain my emotions until I was in the comfort of my own environment.

However, I noticed in the last few years, I became VERY sensitive. In fact, I distinctly remember looking at a picture of a pink crystal on Pinterest and tears just started streaming down my face thinking that it was so beautiful. I think that was the first sign that I was like – okay, something weird is going on here. And as the months progressed, I started to get even more sensitive to stories – both good and bad. If it was a sad story, I would almost be traumatized and had some very tough times. Once I started to become more aware of this, I really, really backed off social media and my exposure to sad stories.

I would also get emotional to touching stories as well. The ones where the soldier reunites with their kids, the dog showing sadness when its owner died – I literally am getting choked up and crying right now as I even just THINK about this last scenario.

So, it doesn’t matter if it’s Pinterest, LinkedIN, Facebook – you name it, it has become a landmine for me emotionally. I have culled out friends that post sad stories, unfollowed everyone that posts anything remotely sad – even GOOD friends – I’m not kidding. I just can’t take it.

I’ve had coworkers start to tell me a sad story and I’ll start crying FOR THEM. It’s not even my situation, but I put myself in their shoes and just feel horrible. Now, I know this is an issue with boundaries – and I am working on that.

Food

The emotional aspect has been the toughest. But the other aspects are becoming more sensitive to everything in general. I have noticed that I go through phases of my body becoming sensitive to chemicals. Here are a few examples – I have tasted preservatives in a popular low-calorie alcoholic beverage (I won’t name names here). All I could taste was the chemical.

I used to drink coffee with flavored creamer – it began to taste like chemicals to me, so I stopped using them.

When I eat eggs, I only eat organic, I’ve eaten eggs at someone else’s home, and they didn’t use organic eggs and the eggs tasted horrible – I couldn’t eat them. Sometimes cheese (like normal shredded cheese) tastes like plastic to me. Sometimes the smell of meat smells like a dead animal to me and makes me want to gag.

So, your body becomes more sensitive to chemicals and preservatives. Recently I ate a meat kielbasa that was made with gluten. I did not realize I was sensitive to gluten and had a very bad reaction that had me out for a least a day. At one point, I was doubled over with stomach pain.

If this is happening to you – you will need to listen to your body, your body will start telling you what is and isn’t okay to eat.

Sensitive to Crowds/People and Certain People

I have periods where I cannot be in crowds at all, like I might have an anxiety attack. And in general, I avoid crowds by going early in the morning or shopping online if I must be around people. My backyard has become my personal sanctuary where I recharge.

At some points I have felt like my energy almost rejects other people sometimes – like I don’t even have control over it. It is like my tolerance for other peoples BS is at its limit and I just can’t do it. To me, if they aren’t in alignment with my own energy – them my energy won’t have anything to do with theirs.

I’ve also felt the need to be alone – a lot!

Clothing

Another thing that I’ve noticed is that certain fabrics get on my nerves. If fabric feels slimy or itchy – like it has some sort of synthetic fibers – then it gets on my nerves. I’ve heard a lot of people end up having to wear only organic cotton. It really depends on the persons level of sensitivity. I find myself only wanting to wear super comfortable clothes – not anything uncomfortable or anything irritating to me – it can even be the style of clothes – such as long flowy sleeves.

Electronics

I have noticed that my dining room lights seem to flicker after I’ve had energy treatments and my energy is higher than normal. I usually just put out a few grounding crystals such as black tourmaline and hematite to even out everything. Recently, my car battery went out – I’m on my 3rd one and my car is only 4 years old, so I’m really wondering if I’m draining the energy out of it? I don’t know.

The spiritual awakening process overall to me is about becoming more self-aware. The more that we wake up and become in tune and in alignment with our true nature, then our surroundings and our experiences inevitably change. The key is to take note and follow your own intuition and guidance. There you will find your own sense of peace.
