MISSION STATEMENT

Project-Wake-Up! is a gentle guide for individuals who desire assistance in expanding conscious living and exploring alternative spirituality. You do not have to pay dues. You do not have to sign anything. You may continue to attend the Methodist church. No salesman will call on you. Your name will not be added to any mailing lists. You do not have to tell your mother.

A WORK IN PROGRESS

Project Wake-Up! will feature an on-going series of articles that are condensed from my e-newsletter articles over the coming months. To receive the newsletter, e-mail me at DianaS@SpiritOne.com.

Expansion of consciousness is infinite, no matter where you are on the ladder of life. The possibilities are limitless. These are times of profound change for humanity and the planet. I believe that the cosmic alarm clock is about to awaken many souls. Is it ticking away for you?



SHE'S BAAAACK.

Shamanic ventures often duplicate the actual physical and emotional experience of something separate from one's personal reality and it takes awhile to sort everything out. A few weeks back I found myself for several days in the most wretched energy. It was oppressive. I felt it physically. My body hurt all over. I was overwhelmed with fear and a sense of powerlessness. After seriously considering the notion that I was ready for confinement in a home in the country (with bars on the windows), I was seized with the shocking reality that I was hot-wired into the mass consciousness.

Fear and powerlessness are really awful. But I can tell you the absolutely scariest part of this adventure. I was there, and I can tell you, it was all-consuming! What was it? It was denial! It buried me. It turned off my mind and what I know as the Truth. I couldn't communicate. I felt I could barely function. I did not want to face reality. I wanted every scary thing in the world to just go away. I struggled like the very devil to hang onto my belief system. The task of changing the world was too overwhelming to even consider. I began to question everything. I just wanted to go to bed and sleep. Now I know why we collectively need shamans to directly explore and experience a particular situation, because only then do you get the full impact.

But there is more. From time to time over the past weeks in one of my saner moments, I would sit down at the computer to compose a newsletter to report on this. I was so in the grip of this denial energy that my mind just went blank. Cosmic writer's block. I would wake up in the middle of the night and the newsletter would begin to write itself. I promised that I would get it out first thing in the morning. Instead, I staggered out of bed barely making it to my recliner in the family room.

As my astrology and healing business languished, I zoned out on television 15 hours a day. The only thing that could get me out of that chair was to eat out and drink wine. The scolding from my inner self was as effective as a mewling kitten trying to move an elephant.

And right now at this very moment, I am fighting to get this written. I have never had such a struggle to write anything in my life. The problem is that when I focus on this subject, I find myself dragged back into the energies. I don't want to write it. I begin to think that everything I believe as a Lightworker is crazy and no one wants to read this crap. I can barely speak English. My whole body is tightened into one great muscle spasm. My head hurts. It makes me sick to even think about it.



NOW WE HAVE A DEEPER APPRECIATION WHY SOME OF OUR FELLOW CITIZENS ARE SO DAMNED BLIND. THEY'RE SCARED. THERE ARE A LOT OF SCARY THINGS IN THIS WORLD. THESE CAN APPEAR TO BE IMPOSSIBLE TO CHANGE. WITHOUT A STRONG SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING OF CONSCIOUSNESS, IT LOOKS TOTALLY HOPELESS TO MANY PEOPLE, SO HOPELESS, IN FACT, THAT MANY PEOPLE TELL THEMSELVES THAT WHAT IS GOING ON IS OK.

I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY SO MANY TURNED TO LEADERS WHO WRAP THEMSELVES IN EXTREME RIGHT WING FUNDAMENTALIST DOCTRINES AND THE "JESUS" MESSAGE. DENIAL OBSCURES THE TRUTH AND ABDICATION TO LEADERS WHO KNOW HOW TO MANIPULATE MINDS IS THEIR COMFORT ZONE. WE NEED TO HAVE COMPASSION FOR ANYONE WHO IS SUBMERGED IN THIS ENERGY. LIGHTWORKERS! THIS IS WHAT WE ARE UP AGAINST.

Ego aside, Lightworkers are not ordinary citizens in ordinary reality. Seeing how the mass consciousness shut me down when I went swimming in it, we should gain tremendous insight into why people in ordinary reality are behaving as they are. They are overwhelmed by fear in the face of some very scary realities about which they feel completely powerless to change. They are in the grip of denial that has shut down their minds. Arguing with them about it is totally futile.




WE MUST SHIFT THE MASS CONSCIOUSNESS

The alleged election of George Bush was the lightening bolt that sent us reeling. (I remind you that this is not political and George Bush is basically irrelevant to our task.) I have written before about the proper way to handle the reality shock. We are not presently winning the game. We will, but we have to act and act according to the higher values we have said we embrace.

The election of George Bush was only the litmus test that the present world paradigm can never be fixed from the inside. It is crumbling and will be replaced by humanity and Earth's ascension into another dimension. The job of Lightworkers is to change their own consciousness in enough numbers to shift the collective. Ask yourself how many times you have been infected by the fear, powerlessness and inertia that laid me low.

It is time to quit bitching about George Bush. He is playing his role in the scheme of things. I like to rag on the politicians and the fundamentalist Christians as much as the next guy. But we must give up our favorite sport. If we continue to carry fear, anger and hate in our hearts, we are contributing to that awful muck I experienced out there. Then we are part of the problem, not the solution. Enough of us must find compassion, peace, security and freedom from judgment deep in our hearts and in every thought and cell of our body. Quit focusing on the thoughts that engender fear. Don't feed it.




GETTING READY FOR THE ASCENSION GAME

Regular readers of my newsletter may remember that in a recent issue I alerted you that I would be setting up The Ascension Game. It is obvious to me that my Higher Self arranged the journey into the mass consciousness that Iíve just described in preparation for that game. I'm choosing up players for my side because this is the biggest game in history and I favor high stakes games. (Clue: We didn't get the numbers in Atlantis. This time we will. The mass consciousness is calling. Every person counts.) As The Ascension Game progresses you will discover from future newsletters that there are rules for this game, too.

There's more! My birthday was February 4th. By then I was basically back from the journeys I referred to above. However, it was also the beginning of another wild ride that lasted three days. I penetrated realities that exceeded previous boundaries. My husband and I were given information for an incredibly powerful healing technique that initial testing has proven nothing short of mind boggling. We are still feeling our way along but will share it with you soon. I am now back on regular business hours. I would like nothing better than to immerse myself in the ordinary life and forget all this stuff. But I'm not going to forget.

(If you are a new reader or are otherwise unfamiliar with what ascension means, check out my book, The Lightbody Activation Manual, or read the entire introduction of the book on my Web site. There will be more information in future newsletters.)
