The journey of Ascension can often be lonely.  We think we need to spend time alone, yet do we?  I’m an introvert in almost every way possible.  Sometimes I even say that I don’t like to talk to humans and would prefer being a monk in a cave.  Yet, our growth comes through interacting with the world.  Our forward progress comes from being with people and interacting with them.

Many times over the past years in Akashic Record Readings or Healing Sessions, I’ve been reminded that while I lived in isolation in past lives, this life is about interacting and living in the world.  That by living in the world, I would learn faster and work through more ‘stuff’ faster.  It’s proved itself to be true.  I still tend to spend quite a bit of time alone and at the same time, I force myself to engage and talk to others when I’m out.  I speak to the person in the grocery store vs looking away.  I engage with them and I remind myself to simply love them.  I try to get involved with my kids and their friends.  I ask them questions and get to know them and in my awareness, I’m offering them blessings.

The journey of Ascension proves to be similar.  While meditation is important, Verna has spoke many times in Diary articles about the importance of engaging with others.  In the Facebook group for those past the 4th Initiation, there is frequent discussion about relationships and clearing with ourselves and others.

Engaging with people in all circumstances helps us know ourselves better.  I find that the gift is actually in those relationships and interactions where there is the most resistance.  In physical form, we feel resistance so quickly and easily.  It’s that moment of a quick breath or irritation or when we find ourselves wanting to complain.  We might be angry or frustrated or we avoid someone because of how they look or what they do or what they say.  These moments are the gifts because they are teaching us where there is something to heal.

The more we heal, the more we grow in consciousness.

The more we heal, the faster we move forward.

The more we heal, the more we discover joy.

Enjoy your journey of Ascension with the world, not isolated from it.  If you have Ascension in your awareness, your light is shining brighter in the world.  Engage with it, learn from it, heal what needs healed and share you light.  The world needs YOU!
