About Me

download (2)

In early March, 2011, I experienced the most miraculous spiritual awakening. My life changed from a life of victimhood, hurt, and suffering to a new perception of my world. It is difficult to describe the vastness and overwhelming feeling of this experience as my awakening was sudden and dramatic. I left my former life and friends to pursue my awakened path and follow my higher alignment. I moved to a city that I knew no one without a job or external purpose. However, I knew and understood all along I would find my life’s purpose and the inner journey I was about to embark.

I first began my quest to find myself when I was 20 years old in college.  After an abusive relationship in college, I entered psychotherapy and recognized that I had been abused as a child and continued this pattern of behavior with others as an adult.  This was the seed I planted in my search for a better and healthier life for myself.   Later, my spiritual awakening revealed my unhappy life full of rage and hurt, working in unfulfilling jobs, and experiencing repeated failed relationships. I wanted a second chance for myself, and I believe it was this intention of my awakening.

As I began to awaken, I experienced blockages in my chakras, and throughout my body. This manifested in pain that caused me to be unable to get out of bed. I also experienced visions, intuitive feelings of knowing about people and events around me. For the first time, I clearly heard my inner voice from my higher self who guided me through this difficult and frightening process, albeit with my ego fighting me the entire way. My awakening revealed my suffering, emotional fractures, and destructive behaviors.  After healing many of my emotional wounds, I began to release my ego, break through my illusions, found my life’s purpose, and recognized my own truth and reality.

Our egos creates illusions that we must overcome in order to truly awaken.  The ascension process forces us to confront our ego and release it, heal our emotional wounds and pains associated with our smaller selves, and come to acceptance of our own truths and reality. Without working through this ascension process, those who experience awakening remain unable to ascend spiritually, and are stuck in a physically and emotionally painful existence as their chakras and energy bodies are blocked from stagnant negative energy.  I believe this is one of the most difficult processes as our spiritual awakening is confronting our illusions and face our true realities.

These revelations caused me to self evaluate about how I want to live my life, and my hope to become enlightened. But who am I? I am not the Dalai Lama, Gandhi, or Mother Theresa.  Then, I realized that enlightenment is not only meant for the select few, but it is meant for all humankind. We all have the potential for this enlightenment and to live a freer, less burdened human life. Come with me and free yourselves of a life of illusions, suffering, chaos and anguish. Leave it all behind you to find bliss, joy, peace, and another way of being. It is a thing of true beauty…

Sending love, light, and peace to you! Brooke

  2. Hi Brooke,

    what a brave and honest piece. We have all been through times we would rather forget, but addressing the issues head on is the only way to break through to a better life.

    Remember, we all have the potential to reach Buddhahood in this lifetime and that there is no path to happiness, happiness is the path.

    Inspiring, thank you. Namaste ~ Anupadin

  6. I have been following your blog on Tumblr. I was scrolling through spiritual posts, but nothing was really grabbing me. Until one post. I started reading and thought, I wonder who writes this blog I think I will follow it. When I saw the name I wondered if it was you. And it was. I love your posts. As someone who has just started the spiritual journey seriously, you have some great posts. xx

  7. Hi

    can you offer advice? I have had spiritual crisis/kundalini awakening. I’m not sure what to do, as I feel like I am losing my mind.

  8. I am loving this. I have been ‘working on myself’ for most of my life, without even realizing it for quite some time, then the work became conscious. Now, I find that although the work, to some extent, needs to remain conscious, what is more important is learning how to manage my energy and energetic interactions with others in order to keep my energy from getting drained, and in order to align my chakras so I can have that fully audible intuition ALL THE TIME instead of just in spurts or what not. Really looking forward to exploring some of the content on your page and hopefully tapping into my fullest potential! Much love, Sara

  16. Thank you SO much for sharing your experience with Kundalini awakening. I’ve recently entered into this process myself but without conscious intent (no kundalini yoga, deep meditation, etc.) although I have been on a spiritual quest since childhood. I am trying to get on board with it and accept that I have invited this awakening on a deeper level. At this time, I have blockages in several chakras which is causing a lot of physical and emotional pain. Reading about your experience with this has been so helpful and encouraging. I no longer feel alone. Thank you!!

  18. dear awakened person. hope you have not stopped with Kundalini alone and trying to go beyond like transcending mind . you did find the play of mithya or maya in everyones life. Gnana is the step/path you are in now.
