Awakening work is the inspired participation
that goes along with the Awakening Process.
Nothing worth doing is ever easy.
Awakening Work is where you begin to consciously participate in the awakening process to become self-aware and self-realized. In other words, you will unveil and uncover the enlightened or fully conscious being who lies beneath the deceptions of the ego. How much "Awakening Work" you do, helps determine the rate at which your consciousness level rises. However, gaining knowledge in itself doesn't accomplish anything until that knowledge is applied to your life where it then becomes internalized and integrated into your everyday experience. This process can get scary at times due to the deep inner work that must take place, but if you face it head on, the source of your fear will reveal itself. All fear is a byproduct of the ego, and as you face your fears the ego will begin to lose its power over you.
One of the leading authorities on Consciousness is David R Hawkins. His groundbreaking work in this subject matter is extremely enlightening and highly recommended!
Don't underestimate the ego's power. It controls us through unhealthy, stressful thoughts (which are not real). These stressful thoughts can re-surface at any time until you have done the awakening work necessary to transcend them. Beware of the "Fallen Guru's". Anyone at any level can fall victim to the delicious trappings created by the Ego. These trappings can take many forms but power, greed, vanity and lust are among some of the favorites. Even the label "Guru" itself can be a trap and if you start to believe that "you know it all" or that "you are in control", you might be headed for a fall and a much needed humbling.
A good dose of Humility can go a long way in helping you to avoid these traps. As you Awaken and become aware of Spiritual Truths, remember that everything you are given is a gift from God. You can't really take credit for anything. This knowledge will help you when the ego tries to convince you that it was your idea.
This doesn't mean you can't take some satisfaction from your hard work and effort, but try to keep the Rewards in perspective. There is actually comfort in knowing that God is holding the reigns and guiding to do the awakening work that's required for us to take the next step in our evolutionary progress.
I try to remain clear by recognizing that every inspiration or even the enthusiasm I feel is a gift. I follow God's guidance with humble appreciation as I enthusiastically carry out whatever awakening work comes next.
Slowing down and taking the time to consciously focus on the present moment is crucial in channeling and redirecting your energy towards the things that really matter. Eckhart Tolle's books "The Power of Now" and "A New Earth" address living in the now or the present moment. His work can help you see how distracted we can get in our daily lives by focusing on the past and the future which in reality aren't real.
When you are ready to transform your life, our book "Manifesting Consciousness" will dispel preconceived ideas about love, marriage, relationships, and money that are standing in your way. Most importantly, our book demonstrates that anyone can achieve happiness and find meaning in their life.
If a heartfelt true story of finding peace, joy and unconditional love is something that interests you, I invite you to join me for my journey in "Manifesting Consciousness".

These are all very profound resources, but remember to follow your own inspiration as you do the Awakening Work, and you will be led to exactly the right books and information that will most benefit you.
Facing your choices in life and exposing them to the light of truth by challenging the stressful thoughts that sorround them, still remains the most impactful work I feel you can do. This Awakening Work is what helps you to heal. As you do, your attitude and perceptions start to change from fear and illusion to love and Universal truth. The best instruction on specifically how to do this, comes from Byron Katie.
For those people out there who wish to "save the world", I challenge you to consider how much more effective you will be when you have healed yourself first. By healing yourself, you will raise your consciousness level, which in itself will have more impact on the world than anything you could physically do. I'm not saying not to engage in such activities, I'm just suggesting that after your consciousness level increases you will automatically raise the level of consciousness on the planet. In addition, your motivations for what you choose to participate in will most likely change. You will be more effective in all of your endeavors because your filter will be clearer.
This clarity will change your entire life which will start to blossom as a result, but you must do the Awakening Work before you will reap those benefits.
"Out of an unrestricted love for God arises the willingness to surrender all motives except to serve God completely. To be the servant of God becomes one's goal rather than enlightenment. To be a perfect channel for God's love is to surrender completely and to eliminate the goal seeking of the spiritual ego. Joy itself becomes the initiator of further spiritual work."
