"Perfecting Our Purpose" - Karen Bishop - August 22, 2009
Perfecting Our Purpose
Karen Bishop
August 22, 2009


A brief note: A heartfelt thank you to those who have inquired about the health of my father, along with possible remedies and health advice for acute leukemia. If any of you were sending prayers, I thank you as well. I greatly appreciate those of you who took the time to offer supportthank you so much, as it really helped knowing you were there. Very brieflyfrom the get-go, I was pretty much kicked out of the whole situation, and my energy was not welcome. Confusing at the onset, as my father and I have always been unusually close, and although very hurtful in the beginning, it soon became very clear that I needed to keep my distance and let the situation unfold as it may. In time, I understood why at the higher levels, so it was OK and I was able to find peace with it. In a few days, my father is due for another round of chemotherapy and another stint in the hospital. He has not shown interest in any alternative therapies (so I could not pass on any of your suggestions and supports), and has not yet come to the point where he is consciously aware of what changes he may need to make in his life. I will either meet up with him when he does indeed wake-up with a new view of reality, or meet up with him if he chooses to cross over through the 3D death process instead. For now, I can only continue to send him great love and respect, and allow him his chosen path. Knowing how much we love and respect each other, even though we are currently far apart and I deeply miss him while he is on his journey, has greatly helped as well. Thank you again for your care and interest during a most challenging time. Now on to the newest WINGS post!

Are you still with me? Have you given up yet? Although it may feel as though nothing much is occurring now, we are indeed in a very specific phase in regard to our move forward, or rather in regard to moving into our very new roles. This has been a very confusing process, as it involved so many twists and turns due to the free will and choices of many, but we are back on track once again, even if we had to basically start all over again after the June solstice shake-up.

When the solstice hit, it blew everything out of the water. Much of everything went everywhere, and when things finally landed, much was in a very new groove, and a groove that now matched the current vibration of each and every living thing on the planet. Everything ended up in its new and rightful groove, while at the same time, many souls chose to depart around this time as well.

The ascension process took longer than expected in regard to the masses waking up. In this way, things needed to be re-structured after the solstice, so that those who were ready could move on in lieu of waiting for their old slots to be filled, as was the usual process for so very long. So then, even though there is now a much wider chasm in between those who crossed over, and those who have chosen to stay behind for awhile longer (and not fill the slots we left behind), there are also many varying rungs or vibrational levels existing for those who transitioned.

In other words: Everything flew out of its old groove, and as it landed on the new and other side, all these energies, or people, landed in many different spots as well. And these many spots are spaced out every which way, with great chasms in between them as well. Now that there is more room, as we are in a very new space, we are really stretched out. Before the solstice, we had caught up with each other, and in this way, we were pretty much all in the same room. We could easily stretch across and touch our brothers and sisters.

For examplewhen I first began writing Energy Alerts, and now WINGS posts, there were very few who were having ascension experiences. Now, the ascension experience is fairly well known and accepted, as there are many, many of us now in the same room together and we all know the drill. Many of you could most likely write each WINGS post yourself! After the big shake-up from the solstice that pushed us across, our brothers and sisters who are most closely vibrating where we are, are here with us, but much farther apart. I hope this is making sense, as it is difficult to describe. Basically, we are starting all over again, but starting over in a new reality. And when we start over, we are spaced out once again, according to our individual vibrational levels. There is much more room here, as we are the forerunners, and the masses are simply not here yet. When we landed, we landed in various locations on different rungs of the ascension ladder, and even those residing on the same rung are farther apart from each other, as there is so much more extra room now.

So what does all this mean, and how will we eventually come together?

We will indeed come together again, but in new and different ways. Our old roles are now over. We are no longer holding up the planet with our energy, are no longer healing and assisting others, and can now begin new roles which involve our contribution to a community or new reality. But before we can get to this space within ourselves, we must tune up or fine tune, and this is the phase we are currently in and rapidly easing out of.

Fine tuning means letting go of all or any energies or purposes within us that we embodied in the past, and that we will no longer need in a new reality. It is a sort of purification process, as we are now becoming our true and authentic selves at yet another level, and this involves getting to that pure gold nugget of who we really are as individuals. We are not really purifying now, but more fine tuningextracting our higher level purpose that is no longer related to raising the consciousness of the planet. That time is over.

Some symptoms of adjusting to the new reality, or rather aligning with it and our true selves? Exhaustion and apathy. We are really being re-wired now, and are being encouraged to relax and do the bare minimum, as exerting ourselves will tax too much of our energy reserves. No extending during this time. We need all our energy during this process, for this process. This is why we may also have great hunger during this time. We need the extra fuel. We absolutely are unable to give at this time as well, but are very open to receiving. This is because we need energy coming in to sustain us while we are so very taxed. Pampering ourselves, buying things for ourselves, being selfish, and tending to self care are what may feel good now, and are what is currently needed. But again, we are soon to be out of this stage, as is it shorter the more we have evolved, as there is less density within us to fine-tune.

Insomnia can be present as well while we are tuning up as so much is going on within us, and can also occur because we may feel that things are still very unresolved in so many ways. When I am moving into new energetic territory, I often feel a lot of energy pouring in through my crown chakra, and I have been feeling this recently as well. A general fatigue may continue along with a strong feeling of being lost and confused. We may not know where we are right now, as we have not completely aligned within and without, but we are most assuredly continuing with the process.

Things may not be manifesting well, or coming together at all for many, and we may feel a lack of support. This is because we are not finished being fine tuned and purified to our higher purpose, and we cannot begin to manifest until we are certain what our new roles will be all about, down to the last detail. If we started things new right now, we might have to adjust them further, and this would cause confusion and delays. We need to have a specific mission statement, so to speaknot a general one. We are now in the new reality, and it involves knowing our own specific purpose and contribution. Most all of us have healing ability and intuitive ability. These are givens with advanced souls. Just natural states of being to be used if and when needed. These abilities are no longer needed as a means of service, for instance, as what we will be offering now will involve our gifts and talents, and contributions to a society or whole. What we are needing now, is what our passions have always been about, and what we indeed know the most about, and what comes most easily for us. It is our natural state of who we are.

At the end of September and especially into October, we will be fairly complete. Things will feel magical, as if angel dust has been sprinkled everywhere, there will be a strong sense of grace ever present, and we will feel much gratitude. The energies will be lightnot intense, and very freeing and easy. This is how things look at present for the future, but we have found very intensely of late, that there is always free will, and things can radically change, so please dont hold me to this timeline or outcome!

Until this process is complete, we will experience enough influx financially, that our needs will be met and we will be taken care of. Almost with a mind of its own, money will arrive somehow. Because our old roles are now over, if we attempt to continue on with them (and at times we may need to), we can feel as though we have short-circuited, become discombobulated, very bored with them, and most times, we can feel almost like we are prostituting ourselves. There may be a small influx with our old work for awhile, as this may provide the needed financial income until we are completely ready for the new to manifest, but it is only temporary.

I remember many years ago, when I tried to give personal readings after I had experienced an ascension leap, and it had become clear that I was now to give readings on a mass level. I would short-circuit, feel stuck, be unable to really align and flow, and thus, had to quit entirely. The energies with the readings felt tight and old, with no flow. I would get stuck and it was dense. But when I began my new role with the Energy Alerts, I felt totally in alignment each time I wrote one, it was easy as pie, and I was in my element. The Energy Alerts were at my new higher levelthe level that I had evolved into.

And this is what is occurring for many of us as well. We have evolved to a new and higher level and reality, and now must embody new roles which match where we now are. Anything else will make us feel like phonies, that we are acting, will give us no energy, satisfaction, or joy, and may feel that they belong to another time or era, feeling very flat and lifeless. This is because we are no longer connected to them. Those roles are over and we no longer live in that space.

The timelines for this process can differ for everyone. Some may be experiencing extreme symptoms, while others not so much. But for most of us, being laid off from our jobs can give the best of us feelings of insecurity, a loss of identity, and acute feelings of being lost, floating around with no anchor, and wondering when, oh when, will anything gel. And not being quite sure what we will be moving into, as it is quite different, can be confusing and alarming as well.

But once we decide and become clear about what we want to offer, and once the re-aligning with our new spaces and roles is complete, the new energy of the new reality will finally feel quite different indeed, with an ease, a gratitude, a flow, and a magical state of grace, as we have indeed earned it. These similar feelings arrived in recent times past as the first taste or influx to remind us of what will indeed be our new reality, and to serve as an anchor and holding point for our new arrival. Do you remember them? Oh, these energies were divine, and how exciting that they will eventually be a norm for us.

1. The following book excerpt was included in the E-mail notification...
From The Ascension Companion:


THE ASCENSION PROCESS can take a great toll on the body
and the emotions. Like a continual roller coaster ride, this
amazing and one-of-a-kind process creates sometimes traumatic
and ground shaking experiences with ramifications like no other.
"I can't take any more!" you may exclaim at times. Or perhaps
"What else can possibly happen?" The ascension process really
puts us through the ringer. With so much energy moving at
times, creating stress and the old familiar purging and releasing
scenario, there are times when we need a break. We may think
that we can stretch no further.

I can remember having extreme reactions during the on-set of
my ascension experience several years ago. My body was so
exhausted from all the internal restructuring going on, that I
became exhausted even trying to have a phone conversation. The
simple act of conversing and even breathing, totally wore me
out. Through trial and error, I discovered that if I really rested, it
greatly helped with the assimilation of these New and higher
energies that were bombarding the planet. I needed all the body
support I could get and thus needed to conserve my strength.
With a great amount of rest, most of the ascension symptoms I
was experiencing were greatly diminished. Taking a 3D form and
restructuring it into a higher vibrating and crystalline form is
quite a process indeed.

In the old 3D reality we were conditioned that hard work was a
great asset and was the real way to get anywhere. Not being very
busy and not continually doing, doing, and doing was considered
laziness and something very negative. Working hard for what we
wanted, and pushing and striving were highly revered. In the
higher realms this is not the case. Putting yourself first and really
taking care of you is a much higher way of being. When we put
ourselves first, the Universe gets the message and follows along.
"Oh, so this is what we are doing!" the Universe responds.

Extreme self-care is vital for a more comfortable ascension
process. If we take care of ourselves, the Universe will take care
of us too. If you are able to give yourself permission to take a
certain amount of designated time for you, you will find yourself
in a wonderful space of receiving. This space is also the space of
the higher realms. Self care and taking time to rest and smell the
roses will place you in alignment with the higher realms and
higher ways of being. And you do not have to be ill with the flu or
some other manifestation to rationalize being in this space! Just
tell yourself that Karen gave you permission!

In the higher realms, it is all about being. Being forced to rest
through the rigors of the ascension process greatly assists in
getting us used to this New and higher way. It is a natural byproduct.
Doing is a thing of the past. Slowing down and resting
when needed along with being is surely the way to go. This is one
reason why we can no longer do so much. We are not supposed
to. We are literally being re-wired and trained for this New and
higher way.

When we learn to take time for ourselves, the Universe will take
care of the "rest." If we continue to try and do everything
ourselves, we only get in the way and the Universe cannot do its
job. As we are becoming more of Source energy ourselves
through the ascension process, we are then learning to work in
unity and partnership with Source and this involves learning to
slow down. When we know when it is time to rest and are not
concerned about resting often, we are then more primed for
aligning with Source. We receive more messages. We connect
more often. We see more clearly. We become much more of
Source ourselves.

If you have chosen this page, you are ready for a rest. It can
really help if you can find a way to rationalize that resting is a
higher way of being. You are not responsible for everything. You
are allowed to rest and to be. You are supposed to. The Universe
truly wants to help and is just waiting for you to give it a chance
to step in by getting out of the way and resting for awhile. You
can actually get more accomplished by allowing yourself this
time, as it will really place you in alignment with the higher
realms. This is where you need to be. Have a wonderful and restful

2. OMG. Seriously. I have not done ANYTHING but sleep lately.
I just woke up from an (unusual for me) eight hour nap to this posting. I am laughing SO much.
She's dead on for me this time. Thanks so much, IHAD!

3. I got a surge from this post
The minute I finished reading Karen's opening paragraph about her father (sending light for that situation) and started reading the rest of the energy alert, I got an overwhelming, emotional feeling--the kind I consider a big hug from the universe. Phew!

Interesting physical symptoms (and what a coinkydink--I'm working on a sidebar for my 2012 article outlining the physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual symptoms of the Shift). I went through the insomnia period earlier (June and July) and now I feel all wrung out even though I'm finally sleeping through the night again. I actually daydream about lying on the couch watching a movie or retiring to my bed in the middle of the day to take a nap!

Alas, with so much that needs to be done around here (Painting R Us--er, Iz Me, as soon as the contractors finish), I'm not sure I'm going to have time to indulge in my longing to be horizontal and immobile. But I sure will try!

Thanks for posting, Dream! :hi:

4. yesterday was a "lounge lizard day" for us too!
I slept fine, but didn't wanna do anything but be horizontal! gray skies (totally raining today...yay) and heat made me a lazy girl!

...even laid on the couch for an hour playing games on my cell phone :rofl:

if that's what helps my body be it! I am sure I will be runing like a freak again once school starts (and once i get my new job!)

5. Interesting
Off and on insomnia, can't get enough to eat; and I got so unfocused trying to get to the bank in my own neighborhood after work a week ago that I wound up at the wrong place twice, first my house when I meant to go to the bank, then the Kroger across the street from the bank, LOL! Totally lost, couldn't focus!

I have had some good and interesting experiences after I began my meditation class. I don't know why the class has made such a difference in my normal meditation, but it has added a depth I didn't have before. And the energy of the center that holds the class is out of this world good! Maybe people find places like this easier now that new energies are coming in, they just seem to appear in one's path.

6. Are you ever right about that!!
Here in town, we have a local weekly newspaper. I don't subscribe, but they send a free one once a month. Got it yesterday and found out that my retired social worker is running "healing classes" (reiki, massage, etc. ) at one of the local Churches in town on Sunday afternoons. She gave me a book about Angels when I first met her after I moved to town. She also leads groups for those mourning the loss of loved ones. I also found out we are having a local election in Nov. All of the Selectmen I worked so hard to get in office in 2004, as well as other town posts are no longer running. Whole new set of people. I belonged to the Democratic town committee until I lost my reliable transportation. I hadn't realized how out of touch I had become re my hometown!!! Must fix this!!!

7. Been downloading a LOT of angel energy lately
Feels exactly like she said: like they opened up my crown and poured it in. It also didn't feel like it was specific to me. I just knew it was happening to lots of folks.

On that being exhausted thing, YES! I am constantly tired and "needing a nap." Y'all don't know me well, but that is so contradictory to my usual self -- I'm usually the one pinging off the walls with energy, and here lately, all I want to do is rest.

Glad to hear it's happening to more than just me.

8. "Exhaustion and apathy."
Oh yes, I've felt a bit of that lately.

Thanks IHAD.
