YOUR INNER LIGHT
This section is dedicated to some posts, blogs, writings in English.
Some of the material will be borrowed from the web
acknowledging the sources,
some other blogs will be my personal thoughts and experiences.
Basically spirituality will be the key path
that will lead us to self dicovery as well as to an understanding
of how our spiritual world works inwards and outwards.
The human being is not only made of body, mind and soul,
we are made of emotions, reactions, and above all,
processes of learning life´s lessons.
You are so welcome to this section of Cristal´s Lighthouse.
This virtual website is the home of my soul and heart
and now it is open to you,
if you are looking for advice,
if you need a hug for your soul and heart,
you have come to the right place.
I am here for you,
DEFINITION OF SPIRITUALITY
Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience—something that touches us all. People may describe a spiritual experience as sacred or transcendent or simply a deep sense of aliveness and interconnectedness.
Some may find that their spiritual life is intricately linked to their association with a church, temple, mosque, or synagogue. Others may pray or find comfort in a personal relationship with God or a higher power. Still others seek meaning through their connections to nature or art. Like your sense of purpose, your personal definition of spirituality may change throughout your life, adapting to your own experiences and relationships.
For many, spirituality is connected to large questions about life and identity, such as:
- Am I a good person?
- What is the meaning of my suffering?
- What is my connection to the world around me?
- Do things happen for a reason?
- How can I live my life in the best way possible?
Experts’ definitions of spirituality
- Christina Puchalski, MD, Director of the George Washington Institute for Spirituality and Health, contends that "spirituality is the aspect of humanity that refers to the way individuals seek and express meaning and purpose and the way they experience their connectedness to the moment, to self, to others, to nature, and to the significant or sacred."
- According to Mario Beauregard and Denyse O’Leary, researchers and authors of The Spiritual Brain, “spirituality means any experience that is thought to bring the experiencer into contact with the divine (in other words, not just any experience that feels meaningful).”
- Nurses Ruth Beckmann Murray and Judith Proctor Zenter write that “the spiritual dimension tries to be in harmony with the universe, and strives for answers about the infinite, and comes into focus when the person faces emotional stress, physical illness, or death.”
What Is Ascension?
Ascension is the path of those who are choosing to consciously evolve. Ascension is not something that happens to us on a certain date, or that we unknowingly or unwillingly stumble into. Rather, through expanded awareness, and by integrating the higher vibrational consciousness of our spiritual selves, we are able to ascend.
Ascension is a process of aligning with higher consciousness and with the Divine. It doesn’t happen instantly or automatically, but rather ascension happens incrementally, as we increase our present moment illumination one step at a time.
Ascension is not only spiritual, physical, or mental. The ascension process has an impact on your entire being and how you perceive, relate to and interact with the world around you. Ascension is a total transformation. To ascend is to realign with Divine Love, and with awareness at an expanded level of consciousness.
Awakening is a part of ascension. As you learn to take control of your awareness and attention, you are able to ‘wake up’ to the authentic nature of your spirit, and to empower yourself to consciously align with higher consciousness, wisdom, and with the Divine in every moment. The game of life is triggering more and more to wake up from the persistent illusion and to remember the truth of our multidimensional selves by linking with higher consciousness.
In addition to awareness, integration is an essential part of ascension. To continue moving further into higher vibrational frequencies without being pulled back into lower energies tied to fear, releasing and integrating lower vibrational aspects of self are essential.
To fully ascend into total enlightenment and awareness of the Divine within your self and within all, clearing out the old and outdated patterns, habits, beliefs and energies is required to make room for the inner brilliance and illumination of Divine light to shine through you.
By cutting the cords to the past, and releasing the pain, guilt, or grief which is weighing you down, you free yourself to awaken and to ascend. You’re then able to shine as the unique expression of the Divine that you are, moving forward on your path of illumination.
Ascension caught quite a buzz leading up to and around 2012. But now that that date has long come and gone, it’s more clear than ever before, that instead of something external magically helping all to shift at once, it’s now up to you.
It’s up to each and every individual to make the inner shift to awaken and ascend. Then, collectively we are able to view reality through the lens of love, and through this enlightened perspective, the ‘mass ascension’ and the realm of love on Earth can fully be felt and seen.
Thanks to continued waves of light and spiritual energy flowing onto Earth from the Divine realms, ascension is now more than ever before, available to all. More people are waking up everyday to the feeling and knowing that there is more to life than the ‘economy’ and the physical aspects of reality. One person at a time a wave of awareness is growing around the world.
Plus, the once hidden teachings of love, enlightenment, and ascension are no longer concealed by mystery schools, religions, and secret societies. But while the information is out there, and the stage is set, ascension takes commitment, and self responsibility to make the leap out of fear, and into love. It takes a constant return to awareness to shift out of old patterns and habits in order to ‘lift into the light’, to evolve, and ascend.
How Do You Ascend?
To ascend is to infuse your consciousness with the infinite possibility manifest through love. The ascension path is two fold. Lifting to experience new levels of Divine light is one. Releasing, integrating and healing past wounds, energetic blockages, beliefs, fears, and limitations is the other.
Awareness is essential. With awareness you are able to know your required work and your next steps. You’re able to notice the patterns and beliefs holding you in density and release them in the moment to step into a new level of love.
The ascension path is not easy, but it is simple. Your awareness is your most valuable resource, and so if you want to progress on your ascension path, make a commitment to take control of your attention and become more and more aware.
In the physical world now there are a constant supply of distractions entertaining and stimulating our minds in every moment. Unplug. The mind is part of what we are ascending… But to do so we need to be able to let it pause.
Turn off the TV, put down the smart phone, and just be and breathe. Learn to meditate and pause your mind on demand for this increases your awareness and with awareness you’re able to consciously interact with the world around you to learn and validate through real life experience.
Awareness will also help you to adapt to the ever changing circumstances of life around you.
In addition to meditation, learn and seek out new perspectives, validate what you learn to gain wisdom and knowledge, implement what will serve you, love in every moment, move forward, and grow…
This is the ascension path. The path of increased awareness, higher consciousness and illumination. The master path of love.
Higher vibrational living awaits you as you consciously choose to ascend. Put in the time to meditate, to open your heart and link with the Divine and with the realms of spirit, and to release that which is not in alignment with who you are becoming.
Your awareness is key… So pay attention to what gets your attention. Is it love? Is what you are filling your mind and body with serving you in your life and on your ascension path? It is fueling your soul and spirit… Or just distracting you?
Not all will ascend in this lifetime. But if you were drawn to read this article.. the stage is set for you! Your total enlightened and illuminated self already exists. Now it’s simply a matter of integrating your light into your being. Bringing your spiritual power into the physical. Opening your heart, becoming aware, and shining with the full brilliance of your higher self and spiritual being here in the physical.
You are the one, every moment is your opportunity, and now is the time….
WHAT DOES "AWAKENING" MEAN?
Awakening' pretty much means 'waking up' from the illusion...
It is a spiritual term for when one starts to put pieces together in life
and find a deeper spiritual meaning and resonance.
Things start to 'click' as you listen to your inner guidance and wisdom.
You start to question 'reality' and realise that life is but a dream within a dream.
It is quite an existential experience.
Signs and synchronicities take place
and you find yourself feeling more connected and closer to the truth of life,
who you are, and why you are here.
The bigger picture starts to sink in and you feel alive and enlightened
by your sacred discoveries and inner knowings.
You may have more spiritual experiences and an instinctual feeling that something far greater than you can understand is happening ‘in the air’ so to speak. Your new awakened, heightened consciousness breeds a profound sense of love and appreciation for the wonders of the world. You notice things more, and there is a perceivable sensation of something blessed blossoming and emerging within you.
Right now we are experiencing huge shifts of consciousness upon the planet with many 'waking up'...
We are individually and collectively entering a new paradigm.
Have you noticed anything 'different' in recent years?
AWAKENING SIGNS - ARE YOU AWAKENING?
~A feeling that something has changed within you.
You simply feel different, you may not look any different but you know something has changed internally.
Your old ways are falling by the wayside and the real you is starting to emerge.
-An increase in occurrences of coincidence better known as synchronicity,
favourable people and beneficial circumstance start to appear with exactly what you need.
Answers to questions are revealed to you through signs and messages.
Synchronicity is a sign you are on the right track and that you are aware of these miracles happening around you. The more you notice and take heed, the more they appear so show appreciation for the guidance you are receiving.
-Quicker manifestations. Spiritual awakening raises your vibration; t
his involves a release of blockages which allows abundance to flow to you.
Being in alignment with a higher vibration results in quicker
and more beneficial manifestations to be received by you.
Be aware of your thoughts so you get what you really want or better.
-Paying more attention to the details of daily life.
-A desire to enroll in a classroom of "higher" learning.
-Seeking new friends and groups who are interested in the Integrated life of the spirit
(meaning balance in mind-body-spirit)
-Going to new places and moving outside of your comfort zone.
For many of you, this is allowing yourself to ask questions in groups,
to talk to "strangers" and to let go of your fears of looking uninformed in front of others.
-Sense of your own power to create with thought, words, and actions
-A feeling that you are somehow different, with new skills and gifts emerging, especially healing ones.
-Increased integrity. You realize that it is time for you to seek and speak your truth.
-A knowing sense of connectedness / Oneness.
-You have an abiding knowing from within of the intrinsic inter-relatedness of everything,
both living and non-living.
You have a sense that now your life is a living manifestation of this Truth, and that you are It -- as are all people."
"Remember, meditation will bring you more and more intelligence, infinite intelligence, a radial intelligence. Meditation will make you more alive and sensitive; your life will become richer.
"Look at the ascetics: their life has become almost as if it is not life. These people are not meditators. They may be masochists, torturing themselves and enjoying the torture... The mind is very cunning, it goes on doing things and rationalizing them.
"Ordinarily you are violent towards others but the mind is very cunning – it can learn non-violence, it can preach nonviolence, then it becomes violent towards itself. And the violence that you do on your own self is respected by people because they have an idea that to be an ascetic is to be religious. That is sheer nonsense. God is not an ascetic, otherwise there would be no flowers, there would be no green trees, only deserts. God is not an ascetic, otherwise there would be no song in life, no dance in life – only cemeteries and cemeteries. God is not an ascetic: God enjoys life. God is more Epicurean than you can imagine. If you think about God, think in terms of Epicurus. God is a constant search for more and more happiness, joy, ecstasy. Remember that.
"But mind is very cunning. It can rationalize paralysis as meditation; it can rationalize dullness as transcendence: it can rationalize deadness as renunciation. Watch out. Always remember that if you are moving in the right direction, you will go on flowering."

UÑDERSTANDING HOW THE LAW OF ATTRACTION OPERATES
If you want to receive something, then desire it, then let
it go. The harder you try to hold on, trying to hard to make
it happen, only pushes what you want further away.
Desire what you want.
Then believe it's done. It is done. It's done. On a
vibrational level it's done. It's done the moment you dream
it into existence.
Don't think about what you want and then follow up with how
am I going to make this happen. Any future thinking about
what you want should only be because you want to re-play the
feeling you have when you think about it.
You don't want something except for the way getting it will
make you feel, or the way you'll think you'll feel when you
physically get it.
The better you feel and the more emotional "ump" you put
into the feeling and the more you visualize or seeing
yourself in possession of the thing you want, the quicker it
My part in the process is to feel good and not allow
resistant vibrations to get in the way of the vibration what
I want is on.
Do what feels good.
And then revel in that feel good emotion. But if you get out
of feel good, then try and get yourself back into it. Do
something else. Play with the dog, brush the cat, listen to
an inspiring song, read good literature, ride a bike, look
at beautiful pictures.
Go for a walk and enjoy nature, look far into the horizon,
as far as you can see and get lost in the vastness of the
view. (That is very powerful)
Throughout the day watch your thoughts and the emotions you
Earl Nightingale wrote that the strangest secret is that man
becomes what he thinks about all day.
Law of Attraction is a force that manifests what we want. We
just create and then allow the law to bring it to us.
What you are feeling right now is what is being attracted to
you. Nothing can happen to you that you don't first create.
And it's easy to create, we are all doing it all the time
and it's a whole lot easier to create abundance and good
times than it is to create lack and hard times.
But when we do create lack and hard times, troubles,
difficulties, then we have a strong tendency, (because of
our past programming to dwell on what we physically see....
which is only an illusion) and then we set our emotional
vibrational tone to all of those difficulties and Law of
Attraction will deliver them to us right on schedule.
Everything that happens to us is a guide. A guide to inform
us of what vibration we are in.
What trips everyone up is the comparing of what it is you
want and what is in the physical reality. If we can't first
dream it and get there in our minds, then it can't happen
externally. Everyone wants outside circumstances to change
so they will feel better and outside will only change when
you feel better first.
The secret is don't look at external - unless external is
what you want. We are observing what is instead of dreaming
about what will be.
The substance of the universal mind is consciousness,
therefore it's behavior that's important.
The known physical world is governed by a set of classical
Newtonian type laws. The law of gravity is one of those
laws. You drop a ball and it falls down. Jump off a 10 story
building and you go down. It happens every single time you
repeat the event. It never operates in a different manner.
The Law of Attraction is one of the more powerful laws. It
always works and it always works in precisely the same
manner. Just because we weren't taught it in public school
doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
The Law of Attraction controls how physical experiences that
we have appear on our range of physical existence.
In is always working in every single instance of our
experiences bringing to us events and situations in response
to the emotional vibrations we are emitting.
We get to experience physically what the dominant emotional
vibration we are experiencing is transmitting - Total
All emotions are vibrational. The brain is a type of radio
transmitter that sends out that vibration our emotions are
on to the field.
In the field of possibilities, all possibilities exist. The
Law of Attraction draws out of the field the "best fit"
vibration and relays it back to us where a type of
holographic image is then emitted, similar to a movie
projector - into our dimension of physicalness. Then as we
experience this with our physical senses, we then choose an
emotional response to it which determines what our next
physical experience will be projected. (Note: this is a very
simplified explanation of what happens, but the details and
technicalities of the precise way it works isn't important
for now, what is important is that you understand that the
law does work)
All of this happens very quickly and it continues moment by
moment to repeat the procession throughout the day.
The respite from this is sleep. However in sleep something
else occurs which we are just going to throw out her. In
sleep the pineal gland found in the middle of the brain
produces a substance call DMT (dimethyltryptamine). DMT is a
natural substance classed as a hallucinogenic. DMT greatly
enhances and/or modifies, or colors the experience of
In dreaming we view an entire different dimension or
frequency of events. All events in in this state are without
limit. In our physical we have a definite need to put limits
on things, this is practical for us to make order out of our
