Namaste Beloved Ascension Community! It is with great reverence and love that I am sharing with you today. This is a blessed opportunity for me to reflect upon my ascension journey. While pondering where to begin, the first thing that actually comes to mind are the words of Poet, Robert Frost, “The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep…” I know that I have much to discover and much to remember, but I am on my way, and for that, my heart is overwhelmed with joy and gratitude.
As a little girl, I used to tell my mother about the conversations I had with God before I was born. I also finger painted a plethora of magenta and purple Chrystaline mountain ranges that I crossed in order to get to her! I knew my mother believed me, as we shared that connection, but everyone else I attempted to share this with listened with raised eyebrows. It wasn’t long before I disengaged with the desire to tell those stories. By the time I was in grade school, I came to the conclusion that those things were just figments of my imagination, no matter how clear the images remained….
I was basically raised with a Christian upbringing in a Methodist church. My mother was the choir director of our community church for 26 years. I couldn’t imagine being anything but Methodist (unless I someday were to marry a Lutheran, that would be acceptable). This thought remained until my Grandfather lovingly said to me “If you have it right, Lara, then how is it, that everyone else has it so wrong?” My Grandpa was awesome. He didn’t mean that I shouldn’t trust myself, of course, he was suggesting, however, that I keep an open mind. He had a knack for saying things that made you ponder whatever you were doing or thinking. Hindsight, his comment was the impetus that alerted me to my own judgment and began to stir the Divine questioner within. It didn’t take long before I figured out that I shouldn’t put things in boxes when it comes to people, spirituality, Gaia, or myself!
Well, I did marry that Lutheran. :o) We have two amazing kids. The natural thing for our humble, rule-following selves, was to join a church and settle in, as that is what we thought we were supposed to do. Despite our attempts of connecting to just about every denomination, and never truly feeling at home, we figured out that it was the connection to the Divine within that truly moved us. My husband and I decided to start doing what we wanted to do rather than what we thought we were supposed to do. We bought a camper and began spending lots of time in the woods. It was by way of campfire, long hikes, starry nights and uninterrupted family time together that we cherished our Divinity. What a gift! It was within that time that I started to connect deeply to the Earth, became a Vegan, and began recognizing the Oneness of the Spirit.
My journey into the ascension community began when a dear friend shared her story over a 5 hour cup of chai tea. Time stopped as she told me about her path and about the teachings of Archangel Zadkiel, as well as Sri and Kira. Everything she said seemed to call me home. I sat there, continually nodding my head, and saying, “A’ha”! There were several more timeless visits, and eventually I signed up for Navigating the Inner Matrix, Ascended Sanity, Medical Intuitive, Ascended Numerology, Mysteries of the Tojil, Avesa Balancing and traveled to Guatemala for Quantum Clairvoyance. The wisdom teachings of Sri and Kira as well as our Cosmic Brethren, continually remind me of who I am and why I am here. I am so incredibly grateful to them for all that they do. I hold tremendous appreciation for the Miracle Team, as well. Together we are able to create a network of light. What an honor and privilege it is to stand and shine with you! May the blessings of now and the soon to be now continue to pave your way! Hugs and Great Love! Lara
