When you look at a photo of you from a year ago, what do you see? A crooked nose and some fine lines? But that is only the superficial stereotypes that the society makes us believe. The awakening process comes with an understanding that the perfect symmetry or the body standards we compare ourselves to are just made to sell us something and limit us.
As a divine being, you have your own truth. You are above the standards of what you are “supposed to look like.”
Instead, look at your eyes! They are the window to your soul. Through them, you see the kind of person you were at that time. You see our own truths and believes. You may even be a completely different person inside with all the growth you’ve been through. And there’s no hiding from yourself!
Lighten up on yourself! Learn how to take a selfie and enjoy it! If needed, take 30 pictures. The most important thing – have fun! Show the camera the most authentic and relaxed you. And when you look at them the next time, you’ll remember the fun and the authentic self of that time.
A tip from Kimberly:
Appreciate the diversity and love the best version of you!

For each element in your routine, fire off the following questions in your head.Write down the answers! It frees up mind space:
Who are you doing it for?
Is it bringing you closer to what you want, away from what you want, or nowhere?
What do you expect to get from it?
What would happen if you didn’t do it?
Do you really want to be doing this, or do you feel like you’re supposed to?
And the grand finale:
What’s running in the background while you’re doing it?Is it excitement? Boredom? Desperation?
Sit. Feel. Observe.
This pause after asking these questions will bring you to the WHY of what you’re doing.
When you get to the WHY, you are at a conscious Point of Choice.
Do you want to keep doing this thing, or do something else? Remember that what served you before, when you were a different person, may not work for you now. After all, you no longer need to hold your mother’s hand anymore when you cross the street, do you? Some activities don’t reflect the new You that you have become.
Remember, you are a new person every moment, with every choice you make.
By recognizing what you’ve actually been choosing for yourself, and WHY, you can evaluate whether or not these repetitive actions are bringing you closer to what you want, or further away.
You may find yourself getting rid of routines that make no sense.
This will never feel like sacrifice.Rather, it will be more of a release…and hopefully with an acknowledgment of thanks for the experience, as fun (or not fun) as it was.
You are a sovereign being, and you get to choose what you think about…and how you interact with anyone or anything. Your choices form into the physical reality that you see and experience around you.Why not make all of them conscious ones? You have always had that power.
May your soul’s every wish be fulfilled. Love to you.
It’s clear that something has gone terribly wrong with men striving to be Man Enough.
We see evidence of this everywhere, and it begs the question: What can men do about it?
This article offers men a blueprint for cleansing themselves from the pressures of toxic masculinity and forging a path to self-actualization.
Choose Your Social Circle
One noteworthy step in my spiritual progression occurred when I decided to clean out my social closet. This was prompted by one simple piece of advice that came from a fellow man I met online. To paraphrase his main point:
“When you don’t want to take part in a social norm, the greatest and only power you have is to walk away. And if you’re afraid of being alone, you don’t even have that.”
When he said this, I suddenly realized how much power could be gained from overcoming my fear of being cut off or isolated from others.
From that moment on, I raised the bar for the kind of people I wanted to surround myself with, favoring inspiring books over fake friends. You can do the same.
Stop Being a Hero
As men, we desire a sense of certainty about how we understand the world and choose to navigate through it. The cliché of men not wanting to ask for directions comes from our instinct to lead others.
Programmed to view the role of “follower” as emasculating, we all grab frantically at the helm of humanity, failing to synchronize with each other or our female counterparts.
We do this because making a change and taking directions from others means admitting that we don’t have all the answers and need others to help us find our way. It also means forgiving ourselves for being imperfect.
If we truly want to be of service, we need to start by giving ourselves some slack and listening to others.
If you want to make a lasting change, it’s important that you don’t just leave this article without setting an intention. Start your transformation by putting pen to paper, writing down your own takeaways from the following points:
If you feel like people in your social circle are negative and putting pressure on you to conform, start letting them go. Letting go of them is how you will begin to let go of who you think you are.
Recognize that it’s perfectly acceptable not to know who you are or who you want to be. Not knowing is a state of emptiness that empowers you with the receptive capacity to discover and choose who you want to be.
Find your heroes and follow them. These are people you aspire to emulate and connect with. It doesn’t matter if you connect directly with them. What matters is that you listen to them. By doing this, you’re forging a relationship with those heroes and using their example as a model to live by.
Human communications will transform from sketchy vague sentences subject to multiple interpretations, to increasingly clear packets of information transmitted through imagery.In other words, you’ll be sending each other downloads full of feelings, pictures and emotions, and you won’t need words anymore.
This is happening right now, by the way, but most people are simply too full of mind chatter to consciously register these packets of information being sent to them.As more people go within and discover what makes them tick, all will become more sensitive to those non-physical and non-verbal messages circulating around them in the ethers.I bet it’s happening to you already:
Think over the last year.How many times did you receive a text from someone you were just thinking about?
Crazy, huh?Did you advise them that you would be thinking of them just then?Probably not.If you ask them, they will most likely answer that“you just popped into my head”; and that they contacted you on an impulse.
These types of synchronicities are examples of our interconnectedness. And they are happening whether you are conscious of them or not.
Do you know which of your thoughts are available for perusal by others?Are they the nasty ones? The kind ones? The angry ones? The dirty ones?
I’ll put it plainly for you:
All of your thoughts are open to everyone.
Does this sound invasive?
Our society thrives on secrecy. Big corporations watch you with GPS locators built into every app. Everything you search, everywhere you go; it’s being collected for profit by someone, guaranteed.Add to that, our politicians debating the fate of Earth like little boys throwing stones; life will get very exciting when people can no longer hide their secrets.
It is coming.And although it sounds like an invasion of your privacy, that’s because society is set up to separate people.What better way to do that than to make them feel like Big Brother is out to get them around every corner?
This is the natural progression of integration, as modern-day Earth plays out lessons surrounding the theme of shame.We are moving from a society of separation to one of unity.
If you are in the habit of stuffing away your feelings, hoping that they go unnoticed by others, know that adepts can see right past that fake smile and read you, no matter what your face says.The awakened human is increasingly proficient at picking up what you’re throwing down.
Those judgments you make about that girl’s outfit?They spread out in all directions, including to the person that you’re judging.The conscious part of her may be too busy to catch it, but are you sure?You, in turn, are picking up the vibes from everyone else, and if you don’t have a solid foundation of self-love in place, they are affecting you whether you are aware of it or not.
The judgments, the jabs, the mental middle fingers.All open.
And yet on the flip side, all of your kind thoughts, the smiles, the well wishes—are going out in every direction as well.
What are you sending out?
Remember that you are creating your own reality, and that all others who appear in your life are reflections of you. So now is a good time to review the types of thoughts you’re sending out, and taking note of what’s being revealed to you.These reflections are the result of your previous thoughts, manifested.
And if this really freaks you out, bravo!You’ve uncovered beliefs to explore.Check out your views surrounding judgment; both of self and everyone else.Examine your outlook on people who “collect information” about you; this is related to power relinquished to others.Make changes with the understanding that humanity’s integration is accelerating at an exponential rate, and face any issues that fuel the thoughts you feel the need to hide.
What secrets are you hiding, and why?
This makes room in your psyche for new neural pathways to develop.You’ll soon be adept at capturing these downloads as full-fledged concepts, without the need for words. This is where we’re headed, so start mastering those skills.
You’ve heard that the Cintamani stone anchors the Light grid on Earth.
But what does that mean?
Cintamani (Sanskrit for “wish-fulfilling jewel”), also called Saffordite in the gemological world, is found in Eastern Arizona, United States. It is a weathered Obsidian glass. Volcanic in nature (vs moldavite and other tektites, which are formed by meteors pounding the earth and forming glass), Saffordite contains crystalline magnetite, which, as you may deduce, makes it magnetic. Thus, the stone is also an integral part of Earth’s magnetic grid.
It’s connected to Earth in ways you can’t see, but you sure can feel them.
I recommend checking Etsy for good stones. Take the time to choose your stone wisely. If you need help, click here for more information on how to pick out a Cintamani stone.
So now that you have a Cintamani stone, how do you use it?
Hold your Cintamani in your closed palm. Sit down, relax a bit. Take some deep breaths.
With your palm still closed, use your imagination to look right through your hand to the stone enclosed in your palm. Recall the color, the texture, and the shape of your stone, and recreate it in your mind’s eye.
Note any judgments you may have about it, such as:
“It’s really quite an ugly stone,” or:
“I wonder if the quality of my stone is better than other people’s stones, or worse?”
These judgments are normal. We’ve been programmed into the Good vs Evil scenario, or The Event. Recognize your behavior and let it go.
Send your stone thanks for being a part of the Earth. This stone has made a journey, to you, to right here, right now. You don’t know which path it took, or how hard or easy it was.
Transmit your appreciation for that journey.
You will feel your stone start to warm up from the heat of your palm. It will then reach the tipping point, where its heat surpasses that of your body temperature. As the frequency raises, and the stone continues to heat up, you may start to wonder if it will leave a mark!
When your Cintamani gets uncomfortable to handle, it’s time to put it down. I use a piece of palo santo wood to hold mine, but any natural conductor of the Earth will do. Find a beautiful piece of glass, or pottery, or metal, and place your stone on its base.
You have now anchored yourself into your Cintamani stone, and you have activated it within Earth’s grid.
How does the Cintamani anchor the Light grid, exactly?
Cintamani is an amazing transmitter of electromagnetic energy. It maintains the strong connection with the Earth despite being great distances from it.
When you held the stone in your palm, you merged your electromagnetic energy with that of the Cintamani stone. Since (like everything in existence) the Cintamani has a unique energetic signature of its own, it also exchanges energy with you. This results in new signatures for you both, as well as creating a third form that is the combination of the two of you. This third form is energetic in nature at this point, so don’t expect to see it just yet.
But you can sure feel it!
This is how flowers can make you cry. And battlegrounds can make you angry. And sunsets can give you peace.
They are all exchanges of energy between you and something else. The Cintamani is your symbolic reminder of the full interconnectivity between all of Life, with itself.
When you connect to this “ugly little stone” with appreciation, you are exemplifying your commitment to see past the illusion. To suspend judgment about the inner qualities of someone, or something, until you’ve had a chance to really feel them.
Let it sit on its base and continue to emit its energy, now enhanced by your own. Like a radio, it sends out signals that connect with others of like frequency spread all across (and inside) the Earth.
You could receive messages from songs or billboards, for example; or internal hunches; or subtle plan changes that put you in the right place at the right time.
“I have something to give, even if I’m not considered the most beautiful in the world.”
“I am connected to the Earth even if I can’t see it.”
There is a vast network of others out there, all just like me in our desire for love.”
I will allow myself to feel with all available senses, even those I can’t prove are there.”
This little stone might become your favorite tool for transformation.
Your Cintamani can remain on its base for as long as you like. You can recharge it anytime you feel the urge to do so. Please respect it as the powerful conductor that it is, and don’t handle it when you are feeling negative. No need to send out more of that into the world.
Congratulations on anchoring yourself into the Light grid! There are hundreds of thousands of us doing the same. We’re all communicating through this grid, even from what appears to be great distance in Earthly terms.
And the more that join us, the closer we get to each other in physicality as well. Like attracts like!
How did you feel the last time you walked into a party populated with strangers?
A little bit of social anxiety? Vulnerability? Outright terror?Did you walk in and awkwardly get yourself the fastest-working alcohol available?Been there.
Then, I bet, you started to look for someone you know in the crowd. It’s navigation time, so off you go, drink in hand, in search for someone that brings you comfort in a sea of scary strangers.
Oh no! You’ve searched the entire crowd, and your friends are not here yet.Fiddling with your phone and checking for texts would certainly come next.Plus, it makes you look busy.
But that only lasts for so long.You realize that you are going to have to interact with someone, eventually.
“Oh, I don’t want to talk to him, he looks clingy.”
“OMG, what is up with her hair?”
“I’m not sitting next to that guy, hell no. Has he been wearing that jacket since the 80’s?”
For most of us, it’s automatic to search out the threats in a crowd, and to do our best to avoid them.And yes, even an outdated jacket can be considered a threat.I mean, what would you talk about?
“Obviously he and I have nothing in common.”
Are you sure?
I will bet that your initial judgment about him is largely based on historical programming; judgments made by beliefs planted in you by television, movies or well-meaning parents, rather than from previous direct experience.
Here is the truth:
You are divine.All others are divine.
Is that concept a big jump for you?And what does divine really mean?
You are a drop from a giant creative, omnipotent Lake—and you have all of the powers of that Lake, with NO limitations.
You have incarnated here to experience physicality, to grow, and to remember this truth.
Those fellow partygoers are also drops from this Lake, having a human experience, just as you are.You are all equal drops, and you all have the same goal here. Even the guy in the Members Only jacket with ten buckles.
Why not see others as friends?
If they are sharing your party, then they have chosen to be there on not only the physical level, but on higher levels as well.You are there to serve each other, through your mutual interactions.Remember, you get back what you send out.
So the next time you go to a party, remind yourself of your common goals before you enter the room.Don’t expect that everyone remembers these goals just yet, just as you forget from time to time.It needn’t stop you from treating them as if they do remember.
This is how you recognize the divinity in another, and this is how you create that ideal life you’ve been dreaming of. You’ll be creating from a higher level, one that is not hindered by judgments and false beliefs about reality.
We beat ourselves up here on planet Earth.Rarely giving ourselves a break, internal scorning runs rampant unless we make the conscious choice to change our thoughts.
Perhaps you’ve had a tough day. Things showed up unexpectedly; fires to put out, things you thought you put to rest but here they are, back again. It’s easy to feel like we’ve not evolved at all. So we start looking for reasons.
“Why is this happening?”
“Who threw a monkey wrench in my machine?”
“Where did this curve ball come from, that messed up my plans?”
We could send blame outwards, towards others; or even more pervasively, inward at ourselves. One common method of making sense of such occurrences is by using historical reasoning from past events, to explain the happenings in our now.
What if it’s not the same reason at all?
If you are assigning a historical reason for a situation (“it happened for this reason before, so it must be happening for the same reason now”), then the odds are, you could be wrong.
Your assignment based on past experience is only one option of an infinite number of other options. Any explanation you have is merely an idea about something, and you can change that idea at any time. And, human, chances are that you cannot think of every single reason for something. There are surely possibilities that never entered your mind.
Since we live in a free-will zone, you have the power to choose a possibility that you desire, and focus on that. Or, you could choose no possibility at all; leaving it up to the Universe to provide you with the best experience for your growth.
You could choose the idea that if it’s showing up in your life, it’s there for your expansion. So here is the most important question you could ask yourself on your path to recognizing your divinity as the creator of your reality:
Do you trust yourself?
Sit there for a moment and swirl that round in your head like a good cleansing mouthwash. It likely will seep into all corners of your brain, dislodging beliefs and doubts about your power and how you’ve wielded it in the past.
This is a trigger question for most people at a certain milestone in their journey. It is meant to unlock deep-seated beliefs for exploration and redesign if they no longer serve the evolving Self.
You will come up with an answer.
If it’s yes, then you are well on your way to creating your reality in unison with the Others that share your plane, and in collaboration with your Higher Self who has a bird’s eye view of your path.
If the answer was no, then look a little bit deeper into where you are giving away your power.
Try this for one day:
Consider the possibility that some part of you knows what you’re doing.
Even if you’ve never considered yourself that powerful, could you suspend the doubt for one day and consider that you ARE?Could you imagine that everything that is happening to you has a purpose, a reason, and is relevant to the path you are on, and you don’t have to know that reason?
I invite you to trust yourself for one day.
That means, when you suddenly feel so tired that you need a nap, that you go take a nap.That when someone steps into your path and asks for help, that you give it.That when you’re stuck in traffic, there is a purpose for it. Can you allow yourself to be guided without asking why?
For one day, you need not have an explanation for everything.
It might take some reminders along the way.After all, this is behavior that is not widely supported in Western culture; sitting back, accepting things as perfectly orchestrated situations that we have all of the ability to handle.So if you slip, aim at suspending the self-judgment.
It’s very likely that that old time-worn question will pop up: “Why is this happening to me?”
Remind yourself that you don’t need to explain it, and see what happens.If something repeatedly pops up, write it in a journal and drop it from focus until tomorrow.
When tomorrow comes:Check in.
How did it go?Was the day easier?Did you get done what needed to get done? Were you happy, curious, surprised?
Chances are everything worked out just fine.No Armageddon, no ground shaking cataclysm toppled your world. You probably did just fine.And I bet that you had quite a peaceful day, no matter how much physical effort was required in the living of it.
This is the path to recognizing your divinity.Your personal power.Your ability to trust the inner part of you that can see way more than you can. If you can do it for one day, you can do it for more than one day.And soon enough, it will be most days; and this will become your new normal.
Do you feel like your intentions aren’t manifesting? Try this technique to get yourself into your most aligned point of creation. The NOW.
This video is slightly more advanced in its concepts. Give it a try!
In this more esoteric video, Kimberly shows you how to get to your most powerful point of creation.
By learning to focus on three parts of your essence simultaneously, you bring yourself to the most powerful point of the creational process. It is from this point that your intentions are initiated with full alignment to Source.
If you are not receiving what you’re sending out, then this might be a good thing to practice.
The three points of focus:
1. The physical part of you. (What your fingers feel and your ears hear)
2. The energetic part of you. (The part of you that is controlling what your fingers feel and what your ears hear)
3. NOW (the present moment).
By combining these three areas of focus together, you will place yourself onto the path of least resistance in manifesting your desires.
And don’t forget, always be yourself, all the time.
Want to practice your manifestation skills? Use this video to get yourself to the power point of your creation, and then create an entry in your Allowing Project journal.
You are a spiritual and biological being. As you expand your non-physical consciousness, you also expand the capabilities of your physical body.
I recently noticed that I use my left hand to do more things. Traditionally a right-hander, the left hand was the one that held stuff when the right hand was busy. Yet now, I use both hands equally to accomplish a task. And yes, even writing.
Left-handers are Earth’s marvel. How they must curl their fingers just so, and bend their wrists so unnaturally, merely to get words on paper. It looked painful, and not worth the bother, with so many equal-opportunity keyboards sitting around.
By the way, studies show that left-handers are more artistic, better express themselves, and craft more satisfying days, than right-handers do. All characteristics I’d love to incorporate into my more evolved Self.
Now, Lightworker, here’s where considering such developments gets fun.
You’re becoming a Superhuman.
With each limitation you throw out the door, a new ability replaces it.
Let’s use our increased motor skills as an example.
One day you are right-handed. The next day you notice that you are opening bottles, and possibly even writing, with the other hand. If you are a baseball player, now is your time to go for the gold. For the rest of us, this new development may be somewhat of a surprise.
So what happened?
As you spend time reviewing your beliefs—changing them to better reflect the authentic You, and applying those new beliefs to your daily experiences—you grow exponentially. Since all thoughts filter through your belief system first, your attitude gets an upgrade. And since you are creating your reality with that new attitude, you start to feel better about yourself, emotionally and physically.
Your body is the physical representation of how you feel about yourself.
When your self-esteem is rejuvenated, so is your body. You look and carry yourself better. You unlock abilities that have been awaiting activation. You head towards superhuman each time you learn that a certain limitation you were previously living under, is untrue.
Of course, you will look to explain a new ability’s emergence. It’s normal to want to know how this new ability came about and why it’s relevant for you in this lifetime.
There will be an explanation of your progress on several levels.
On the 3D physical level, you now handle any physical tasks that require equal hand use more efficiently. Your left-hand activation indicates increased development in the right portion of the brain. The creative part. The musical part. It’s your imagination station.
If you have suddenly developed skills in your non-dominant right hand, then you show increased development in the left brain. You’re better able to use reasoning to solve challenges in various situations, where previously, thoughts would bounce around in your head in a whirlwind of indecision. You may also find that your mind is clearer and can get to the point more rapidly than before.
On the 4D energetic level, you are integrating your selves. The reason we are all here on Earth at this time is to learn to love ourselves through relationships with others. This new development is a physical manifestation of your updated beliefs. You have released limiting doubts about what’s possible for humans to accomplish on Earth. Each time you meet another human out there, and accept them despite their differences from you, you have integrated another aspect of yourself.
If you have access to your 5D level, that part of you who sees a bigger picture of your Earth plan, then the dawn of these new abilities is in indication that your internal bonds are getting stronger. Your integration is progressing along nicely. You have shown yourself that you can handle more evolution. Buckle up for the ride!
What better confirmation than unpacking an ability that can make your physical life more efficient in a myriad of ways? After all, this awakening is about the merging of yourself on all levels. The energetic You, in balance with the physical You. Feet on the ground, head in the clouds, and loving the privilege of living both at the same time.
So take a look at your hands. Thank them for all that they do. And for fun, try writing with your non-dominant hand to see what happens. Or go try your hand at baseball.
That loud, audible exhale. Everyone has done it, and everyone has heard it.
We’re all familiar with the sound of a sigh. It doesn’t differ much across the globe; it’s recognizable everywhere. Most people are in the habit of sighing unconsciously. Are you aware of when you sigh?
And do you know why you sigh?
The dictionary explanation of a sigh pretty much sums it up:
“To emit a long, deep, audible breath expressing sadness, relief, tiredness, or a similar feeling.”
In the literary world, a sigh is a powerful indicator of a character’s current state:
“to feel a deep yearning for (someone or something lost, unattainable, or distant).”
So whether it’s the protagonist in the novel you’re reading, or it’s you in your physical world, the sigh is used to express things we don’t want to choose words for.
It of course a means of expression for a wide range of feelings. Sadness and relief are top contenders as noted above, but I’ll add a few of my own:
As Lightworkers, we are tasked with the awesome job of maintaining the highest frequency possible. Not only in our own lives, but for the collective as well. And sometimes, it just gets to be too much.
Enter the sigh.
Your sigh is not merely a release of air. There exists that 3D explanation for sure; but your sigh is also an expression on non-physical levels as well.
Along with your sigh, you are sending your intentions out to the Universe.
Those feelings of sadness, despair or any other low state of being, absolutely must be processed and let out. So the sigh is a great accomplice in the jailbreak of trapped energy.
Here’s where it can go wrong.
If you catch yourself sighing unconsciously, then you are sending out another message along with your sadness. Something you probably don’t want to be sending out:
“Things aren’t OK the way they are.”
Your thoughts create your reality.
So what kind of reality will result from a thought such as that? More things not being OK.
I know that many sighs are completely unconscious on our part. It’s a programmed response built very deep into a culture that thrives on derisiveness. And it’s just one more way that the limitations under which you’re living—and that you are about to bust out of—keep the things that you’re wanting hidden from you.
There is an easy way to fix this, by the way.
If you catch yourself sighing, rummage down into your feelings and ask what your intention was with that sigh. What were you thinking that made you sigh? Get to the thought and feel it.
Perfect. Now you’ve placed your focus on the feeling and have acknowledged it.
There is a belief in there for you to re-evaluate. You can thank the sigh, send out an intention that is more in line with what you’re wanting to create (such as “Things always work out for me, even if this situation sucks”), and move on.
And don’t forget! Everything is as it should be. The time is now.
