What is an awakened path?
An awakened path can mean many things. On one level it is walking through life with awareness and presence as to what is. On another level, it can be an awakening to a certain truth or many truths; be it within oneself, a relationship, family dynamic or how society or the world at large is run. Awakening can come about through a spiritual practice, an illness, an event.
Regardless of how the awakening arose, it can be both an elating and terrifying experience, because what it often implies is that we cannot unsee what we’ve seen. It’s like all of a sudden the light has been turned on in an otherwise dark room. We can see things clearly for what they are. Although truth ultimately sets us free, it can be confronting because sometimes truth is harsh. Sometimes we’d rather not see and this is where cognitive dissonance acts as a “coping” mechanism.
Walking an awakened path is empowering. It offers us growth, sovereignty and endless opportunity as the creators of our lives. However, it can feel disorientating at first as if we’re in a new skin, or as if reality has been augmented and all of a sudden what was, no longer is. The process of awakening is just that: a process, a transition and potentially even a rite of passage.
I’m here to guide you through this passage so that you feel less alone in the transition. It can be scary if everything you once believed about yourself, another, the world, has turned completely on its head. I’m here to extend a helping hand, to listen to your fears and your excitements, to gently walk you onto your path so you can find steady feet upon sturdy new ground.
Know that you are not alone. That you can embrace change. That even though awakening might make you feel like a black sheep at times, if you stay true to yourself, authentic, you will attract your tribe and live a liberated life.
