AWAKENING YOUR NATURAL STATE
Awakening your natural state is becoming conscious of your true nature
and the "Divinity" within you.
Awakening Your Natural State, is becoming conscious of your True Nature and the Divinity within you. This authentic self has always been present within you just below a layer of misconceptions and illusions that the Ego has created.
Your Unconscious Self is not who you are. Until now, you have identified with that unconscious self and now you are ready to start the process of severing that identification with the ego by undoing the habits and thought processes associated with the illusions the ego has created.
This Ego Identification includes:
What you do for a living
Being a parent or spouse
Your financial or social status
Your religious preferences
Your education, etc.
and anything else you currently believe you are
It's not that you stop doing these things, its just helpful to learn not to identify with them as your actual self. Just as described in the
section, Awakening Your Natural State requires you to do some serious self evaluation!
Some of the things I needed to process were a dysfunctional marriage, a victim persona, self worth issues, achieving the American Dream, and my belief that I could find success and happiness in my achievements. None of these beliefs were real, and in order to transcend them I had to see them for what they really were. By taking a close look at them, I was able to see the unhealthy motivations behind them. Motivations like trying to feel better about myself through outside accomplishments or that the acquisition of material things would bring me a feeling of security and well being. However, by shining the light of truth on these beliefs I could see that they were fear based. This understanding began to empower me to explore new motivations that were healthy. In essence, the process of Awakening Your Natural State, had begun the minute I started to remove the unhealthy thoughts and beliefs from my plate making room for divine inspiration to emerge.
Self evaluation is at the core of Spiritual Development and is an essential part of increasing your consciousness level. This is where the real
The good news is; there are many tools and resources available to help you in this endeavor. For instance, along with
and this website, there are three particular authors whose work has greatly impacted our lives and helped us with our continuing journey towards Consciousness. These authors provide incredible insight, information, and practical material to assist in Awakening Your Natural State.
First there is Byron Katie, who's book "Loving What Is" offers a fantastic tool to help us challenge our thoughts. She calls this "The Work". It is a profoundly simple process that cuts straight to your core beliefs and helps you to see how these are a direct projection. It can be Life Altering as you begin to see that you don't actually believe your stressful thoughts. We highly recommend going to her website at
www.thework.com This is truly ground breaking material!
Second there is Eckhart Tolle, whose books "The Power of Now" and more recently "A New Earth" paints a very clear picture of how to embrace living in the present moment and how that applies to you. He was featured on a worldwide interactive web broadcast with Oprah Winfrey that focused on his book "A New Earth".
Lastly there is David R. Hawkins, who's books "Truth vs. Falsehood", "Power vs. Force" and many more, offer an in depth study of consciousness and introduces the use of kinesiology, to calibrate truth and the levels of Human Consciousness. Kinesiology, bypasses the mind and ego thereby giving unbiased results. His work includes creating a "Scale of Consciousness" to compare the consciousness level of anything on the planet. I'll never forget reading "Power vs. Force" or "Truth vs. Falsehood". So many questions I had about how life works were answered. Those truths have been incorporated into my life and I go back to those books again and again as a Reference Guide. I've yet to find another Human Being who has more directly expressed truth. We are truly blessed to have this man on the planet at this time.
I recommend that you read these books once you have established a pretty firm grasp on this subject matter because his material is advanced and rather intellectual in nature, and should be reserved for the serious spiritual student.
page, there is a list of our favorite books that are in chronological order. The order in which they came to us. These books had a huge impact on us and were very helpful in working through the different stages of the "Awakening Process".
However, keep in mind that there are no magical steps to follow in Awakening Your Natural State.
Each of us has our own path which provides us with the exact experiences we need.
So follow your heart, and no matter where it leads you, know that you are always in the right place at the right time.
Learning to listen to your heart instead of your head is how you begin
Awakening Your Natural State while transcending the illusions the mind and the ego have created.
"To transcend the world requires compassion and acceptance, the result of inner humility, by which the world is surrendered to God with increasing peace of mind."
