A dear friend shared this with me. It’s amazing… i can identify with almost every single point if I reflect on the past half a year. Glad it’s all good!

“Twelve Signs of Your Awakening Divinity”
“Shaumbra” means
Family and Deep Inner Friendship

By Geoffrey Hoppe and Tobias
1) Body aches and pains, especially in the neck, shoulder and back. This is the result of intense changes at your DNA level as the “Christ seed” awakens within. This too shall pass.
 
2) Feeling of deep inner sadness for no apparent reason. You are releasing your past (this lifetime and others) and this causes the feeling of sadness. This is similar to the experience of moving from a house where you lived in for many, many years into a new house. As much as you want to move into the new house, there is a sadness of leaving behind the memories, energy and experiences of the old house. This too shall pass.
 
3) Crying for no apparent reason. Similar to #2 above. It’s good and healthy to let the tears flow. It helps to release the old energy within. This too shall pass.
 
4) Sudden change in job or career. A very common symptom. As you change, things around you will change as well. Don’t worry about finding the “perfect” job or career right now. This too shall pass. You’re in transition and you may make several job changes before you settle into one that fits your passion.
 
5) Withdrawal from family relationships. You are connected to your biological family via old karma. When you get off the karmic cycle, the bonds of the old relationships are released. It will appear as though you are drifting away from your family and friends. This too shall pass. After a period of time, you may develop a new relationship with them if it is appropriate. However, the relationship will be based in the new energy without the karmic attachments.
 
6) Unusual sleep patterns. It’s likely that you’ll awaken many nights between 2:00 and 4:00 AM. There’s a lot of work going on within you, and it often causes you to wake up for a “breather.” Not to worry. If you can’t go back to sleep, get up and do something rather than lay in bed and worry about humanly things. This too shall pass.
 
7) Intense dreams. These might include war and battle dreams, chase dreams or monster dreams. You are literally releasing the old energy within, and these energies of the past are often symbolized as wars, running to escape and boogiemen. This too shall pass.
 
8) Physical disorientation. At times you’ll feel very ungrounded. You’ll be “spatially challenged” with the feeling like you can’t put two feet on the ground, or that you’re walking between two worlds. As your consciousness transitions into the new energy, you body sometimes lags behind. Spend more time in nature to help ground the new energy within. This too shall pass.
 
9) Increased “self talk.” You’ll find yourself talking to your Self more often. You’ll suddenly realize you’ve been chattering away with yourself for the past 30 minutes. There is a new level of communication taking place within your being, and you’re experiencing the tip of the iceberg with the self talk. The conversations will increase, and they will become more fluid, more coherent and more insightful. You’re not going crazy, you’re just Shaumbra moving into the new energy.
 
10) Feelings of loneliness, even when in the company of others. You may feel alone and removed from others. You may feel the desire to “flee” groups and crowds. As Shaumbra, you are walking a sacred and lonely path. As much as the feelings of loneliness cause you anxiety, it is difficult to relate to others at this time. The feelings of loneliness are also associated with the fact that your Guides have departed. They have been with you on all of your journeys in all of your lifetimes. It was time for them to back away so you could fill your space with your own divinity. This too shall pass. The void within will be filled with the love and energy of your own Christ consciousness.
 
11) Loss of passion. You may feel totally disimpassioned, with little or no desire to do anything. That’s OK, and it’s just part of the process. Take this time to “do no-thing.” Don’t fight yourself on this, because this too shall pass. It’s similar to rebooting a computer. You need to shut down for a brief period of time in order to load the sophisticated new software, or in this case, the new Christ-seed energy.
 
12) A deep longing to go Home. This is perhaps the most difficult and challenging of any of the conditions. You may experience a deep and overwhelming desire to leave the planet and return to Home. This is not a “suicidal” feeling. It is not based in anger or frustration. You don’t want to make a big deal of it or cause drama for yourself or other. There is a quiet part of you that wants to go Home. The root cause for this is quite simple. You have completed your karmic cycles. You have completed your contract for this lifetime. You are ready to begin a new lifetime while still in this physical body. During this transition process, you have an inner remembrance of what it is like to be on the other side. Are you ready to enlist for another tour of duty here on Earth? Are you ready to take on the challenges of moving into the New Energy? Yes, indeed you could go Home right now. But you’ve come this far, and after many, many lifetimes it would be a shame to leave before the end of the movie. Besides, Spirit needs you here to help others transition into the new energy. They will need a human guide, just like you, who has taken the journey from the old energy into the new. The path you’re walking right now provides the experiences to enable you to become a Teacher of the New Divine Human. As lonely and dark as your journey can be at times, remember that you are never alone.

“It is just the way it is…”

July 30, 2009 at 12:16 am | Posted in Pearls of wisdom, The journey within | Leave a comment

This phrase came to me yesterday during meditation, and i found that it was wonderful in quieting down my mind and bringing me to the present moment. Usually my mind would be running round in circles, planning, wondering, questioning, analysing…. and with “it is just the way it is”, the mind automatically came to a standstill. It’s almost like an internal shrug that said “Oh like that? Then there’s nothing i need to do about it…”

After meditation, i went to the computer. Out of habit, my mind started fidgeting and worrying. Mr Gua Gua was still in bed… “Shouldn’t he be awake by now and getting ready for work?” Little boy’s childcare was having HFMD epidermic with at least 1 new case each day, and my in laws deemed it best to let him stay home. He has been missing school since Mon, which means i haven’t gotten the chance to see him since then. “Shouldn’t little boy go to school today? Shouldn’t i do something about this situation? I should be seeing him on a daily basis…”

Then the phrase came back into my mind. “It is just the way it is…”

And suddenly, the restless thoughts came to a stop.

Yes, Mr Gua Gua is still asleep, despite the late hour. And little boy has been missing school for the past 2 days.

Yet, it is just the way it is.

And maybe, this is how it SHOULD be.

With that, i turned on the computer and got busy with my work and EFT tapping.

If i REALLY need to assess things a little, i wld say that it is because one is sleeping, and the other one not going to sch, that i got the time and space to do what was necessary.

If i had just continued fretting and worrying, my mood would have just gone downhill, and i might have nagged at Mr Gua Gua to wake up, nag at him to ask his parents to get little boy ready for school (which they might not be too pleased abt), and not get anything done at all, except for causing some friction at home.

Instead, i accepted that “it is just the way it is”. As a result, i went with the flow of things and the result was, Mr Gua Gua got his sufficient rest and woke up in good time, little boy managed to spend a wonderful day celebrating my sis-in-law’s birthday, and i got some clearing done – both work and energy blocks.

So from now on, i’m gonna use this mantra more often! Amazing how simple words like this can bring such a calming effect on one’s mind and emotions. Try it… 🙂

Why I am in Nuskin

July 28, 2009 at 12:36 pm | Posted in Rantings and ravings | 5 Comments

THIS is the new biz i am in…. and i was supposed to answer this question for my upline Aiza a few days ago. I have already been addressing this questions on many occasions, in my mind, in sharing with pple… yet, it’s with this friend Vanessa that i really got to understand on a deeper level my reasons for being in this biz, via my email sharing with her.

So here’s her email and my reply to hers…and i just want to re-emphasise that i feel very blessed to have friends like her (and it’s not just her!) who are genuinely concerned about my path in life, and wish to support me to their utmost ability. Cos of her concern, i got even clearer about why i am where i am now…. and I’m putting this email out here to keep reminding myself in case i forget (which is unlikely!), as well as to come of the Nuskin closet (which i have been in for less than a month!).

Dear Lena ,

 Thanks for inviting me today. I will read up a little bit more on MLM, but somehow I can’t shake off a negative feeling about the business model they are applying. There is a site http://www.mlmwatch.org/ , you may want to check out for a balanced view on MLM. Read the article titled: “The Multilevel Mirage”, it gives quite a succinct summary of how the industry works.

In the end, I think it is working as long as you (as a Distributor) believe in the product and can bring this across to people. People always trust a personal testimonial… The same counts for me. But like I said, can’t get quite rid of the “aftertaste”… Aiza was very smooth – skilled & experience to get people feel comfortable and into a sharing mode.

Hope my comments do not spoil your enthusiasm or success, but I thought it is better to share them.

Warm Wishes,
Vanessa  

Dear Vanessa,

Thanks… it’s a blessing to have a friend like you who cares enough to check up on the credibility of the biz. I appreciate your kind intentions. Here are my immediate thoughts.

Stephen Barrett is someone i came across before in my uni days where i was doing project research on this particular product, and supposed to give both the positive and negative analysis on it. He too had a lot of criticism for the product. A lot of it based on logic, and made sense, but as i read his words, i just had this feeling that this was a guy that made it his “mission” to disqualify products and systems out there. There are many such pple out there. Some of them must have very good intentions behind their actions… i’m sure some have genuine intention to educate the public. Others, however, like Stephen Barrett, feels disparaging, and disrespectful… almost condescending.

I read something similar, author’s name i can’t rem, where the topic was on EFT. And since i knew EFT and Gary Craig so well, i was quite amused to see how the writer managed to twist everything on the website into something trivial, hilarious or fundamentally bad.

U know the theory that this is a holographic world, and how the world is really a projection of our inner states? I am wondering about pple who spend lots of time criticising and disparaging systems…what kind of inner states they must have. It’s none of my biz and i shldn’t judge them, but I do tend to be very cautious about people who focus on the negatives, and spend much of their time tearing things down.

In comparison, i find the successful network marketers spending their time multiplying their success AND teaching others to do the same. I am extremely impressed by what i have read abt the top millionaires in Nuskin enterprises. They all seem very positive-minded, down-to-earth, and most importantly, they have a genuine wish to make a positive contribution to the world, whether it is to teach others how to achieve financial freedom, or taking part in charities that are founded by Nuskin such as Nourish The Children and Force For Good.

So rather than believe those who spend their lives criticising others, i would rather follow the footsteps of those who have contributed positively to the world.

This is just a personal sharing of my experience of MLM. I am still new to this, but am learning more abt the biz everyday, and so far, it’s been a positive experience. Each day of learning makes me more certain that this is a biz that would not only help me achieve financial freedom, but allow me to do greater good in this world. My intuition about Aiza tells me that she walks the talk, and what you see is what you get. She’s 7 years in the biz, and undoubtedly very skilled in her work. But it’s her honesty that really won my trust, and i genuinely like her very much.

 Anyway, i very much appreciate your concern… seriously! And it’s thanks to your sharing, that i get to share my thoughts, which also help me to reflect a little about my short but interesting journey in Nuskin so far. I have always liked your truthful and insightful observations about pple and life…so do continue sharing them with me. 🙂

 Luv, Lena

Dear Lena ,

Thanks for sharing and yes, I hear what you are saying. I fully agree with you that a positive attitude and wanting to contribute constructively to the world and others should be the way to go. On the other hand, I believe everyone plays a different role and some people (maybe Stephen Barrett is one of them) do it by challenging conventional views and “hypes”.

I think that MLM works and precisely it does so, because it is based on people’s beliefs of what the product, networks and money-making can do for them. Coupled with concepts like group-sharing, mentoring and leadership where everyone takes responsibility for their own actions, it makes it an interesting proposition. As they say, WEALTH = VALUE x LEVERAGE. In that sense, MLM has the right formula. The question is how much VALUE is really delivered, but of course that question applies to a lot of other products out there too (e.g. is it worth to pay $180 for a Chanel Cream where the packaging is more expensive than the ingredients as Aiza mentioned).

I think I am uncomfortable with a few things:

  • The fact that everyone pushes only the products of one brand (this is different from Online Stores for instance where products of different manufacturers are offered; reality is, not all products are fitted for all people)
  • The bigger your network the more money you are making (= pulling the leverage handle), what about creating more value for customers instead? And for me delivering more value also means I can give unbiased advice about different products in the market. For me it is all about the “true needs” of customers and then customizing the approach. How can I do this objectively if I have an interest in selling a particular product to the client?
  • And that for me is the main concern, if you intermix business with friendships – where do you draw a line? If you are part of a group like in MLM, this becomes your reference point (and for many the substitute family to fill their emotional needs as well), you are not an objective friend or colleague anymore. Your underlying intention is to “sell” me something, because YOU believe in it and think it would benefit me. Once I become convinced, I become another “seller” and the chain and system grows.
  • So what I am saying is it works on this “brainwashing & chaining” approach – once locked in, it is difficult to get out, because obviously you think the product works for you and so it has to work for others to. Thereby it is forgotten if there are other products in the market that would work just as well and maybe even cheaper.
  • For me this approach doesn’t promote freedom of choice and objectivity. The other thing is I do not wish to network with the underlying intention of selling something. I want to approach people, because I am interested in them or I can support them in a positive way with no strings attached.

Sorry for rambling on. Anyways, I respect your decision and think that you will be successful as long as you believe in it and feel comfortable. And certainly it will give you a good opportunity to connect with people while building your business sense.

Sometimes I think, I have more of this “Poor-Genius” mentality. Quite good at what I am doing (if I am actually doing it), but not knowing how to make money with it. I always identified strongly with PicassoJ. There may be a mental shift required on my part, but I think MLM is still not the approach that would work for me.

Wish you success with it and we talk soon.

Best,

Vanessa

Dear Vanessa, 

I like what you are sharing and yes, it provides me with good food for thought. I like the way you can keep me on my toes, so that I can continue creating movement in my life that is aligned with my goals of truth and love.

 MLM is a system, and different pple will use the system differently to meet different needs. Like in all other biz, you can do it to varying degrees of ethics/morality.

When we meet up again, let me show you my personal vision statement that Aiza asked me to do, as part of my Nuskin homework. This, and other things which I hear from Aiza and her upline James who is also now my mentor, has convinced me (without their knowledge) that this biz can help me WALK my TALK.

It is one thing to wish to empower others in their growth, both in the material world and in the spiritual aspects. But how many healers are there who are not themselves empowered in every sense of the word?

What i learnt from Gary Craig’s Palace of Possibilities, is that resistance to change can show up in all forms, most of them looking like valid beliefs, such as “Being spiritual means you should not accumulate material things”. Yet, in true spirituality teachings, even the so-called spiritual beliefs held by many pple who seem themselves spiritual, are just another expression of the ego, and are dualistic in nature.

It is my personal goal to incorporate spirituality into biz, and this means i need to relook at my beliefs abt money, human relationships, work… everything! Nuskin is forcing me to challenge myself on many aspects,and i know that if i encountered this 5 years ago, i wld have run away with the reason “Oh i don’t believe in such things” and feel quite self-righteous about it!

In fact, when i first attended the biz opp meeting, i experienced a great deal of discomfort, and i honestly told Aiza “this meeting freaked me out!”…. and i knew that it’s freaking me out cos there are many things in this biz i couldn’t see myself doing, yet i knew the potential for success was there. It’s cos i have grown so much especially in the last few months, that i was able to see this discomfort as not an indication of the biz itself, but an indication of the issues within me that still needs to be healed.

This is just MY experience Vanessa…. in no way am i even hinting that what i experience could be yours. In fact, you are very cool and rational, and at the same time very intuitive, so i take your comments very seriously. Right now, i have already tapped myself into the state of wanting only the biz partners who are aligned with me, because it is not my job to buy pple over. My job is merely to heal myself by being in this very positive environment, present the possibilities to pple, and if pple see the possibilities for themselves, i can be part of the conditions to make their goals into reality.

So with that, i hope you would continue to feel comfortable with me as a friend, and know that I will continue to support you in your goals, the way you have been supporting mine… and even if our paths are not exactly aligned, we are still aiming for more or less the same destination of bringing more light and love into this world. 🙂

Luv, Lena

PS: I’m going to put this into my blog cos there are reinforcements for me in this email that i wld like to keep…. somehow u have a way of helping me connecting more deeply with myself, thanks!
