  You welcomed me her a long time ago. I just now remembered the site. Since I joined my life has been a whirlwind of  lessons. I recently was reconnected to site through a message from a member. I have relocated to Colorado now and m so glad I found the site again. I am hoping to be able to contribute here now as soon as I move into new home September 2015. Thank you for welcoming me , I will try to figure out how to request you and others here as friends. We are all connected.

Many Blessings,

Terri ( crislsoul )

About me
Welcome! I'm Alexa, the founder/creator of Awakened Journey. And I am so happy you are here.

Beginning in 2008 a wonderful group of people from all around the globe came together and cocreated this wonderful online healing, wellbeing and consciousness recovery community. Our central mission was sharing the path of spiritual recovery, wellbeing & personal freedom and we created a fun, supportive and inspiring co-creative awakened space. We then moved into the facebook and social media age but our foundation rests here to visit or explore. There are many gems and surprises hidden throughout the site. I hope you find some of them or some inspiration when you need it most. I am grateful for every bit of our shared journey here. Enjoy our archives. You are welcomed to visit often.

Alexa Major, SuryaKarunaॐ, shamanic yogini practitioner ~ ashikia* eaglefeather (the name the dolphins* & the Earth Mother gave me)

Shamanic Intuitive Healer, Teacher & Soulguide; creative spirit, Women's Life Healing & Awakening Coach, certified Intuitive Counselor; Kundalini ReikiTUMMO™, Usui and Animal Reiki Certified Practitioner; Emotional Recovery for HSPs/empaths, specializing in recovery (restoration) from dysfunctional family and global systems & past emotional trauma; feminine nature based living and practices; earth & animal rights and protection advocate and angel

Note: I work with a passionate foundation in spiritual emotional recovery for the highly sensitive and empathic soul as well as in spiritual initiation & rebirth. I experienced 5 years of spontaneous awakenings which culminated in a life changing experience of full Self Realization (in a western woman's body) that totally changed my life while recovering from a traumatic life threatening iatrogenic injury and studying under a Mexican Nagual (shaman); I know nothing is at it seems and I can guide you too through levels of Awakening and recovering True Self while transforming from life's greatest emotional challenges. (I believe that our suffering is a gateway to Awakening. The deeper the pain and challenge, the greateris the potential for breaking though the Veils of Illusion and Rebirth) (Conscious Awakening)

Highly Sensitive (Sensory) people and (all) animals too go through so much in this challenging world. I love to hold community spaces that foster deep authentic healing, holding, spaciousness and transformation for empaths/hsps and support each other & the world in comfort and love and post-traumatic awakenings & rebirth.

A trauma can be many things to many people: an illness, family dynamics, emotional neglect and/or abandonment, the loss of a loved one, human or animal, unkindness, bullying and general cruelty, even witnessing the harming of the earth and climate crisis, anything big or small, (there is no small)

I also love teaching feminine based living & practices for restoration, balance, wellbeing & empowerment, and restoring your naturally creative playful and service-driven heart and spirit so you can enjoy & celebrate your highly sensitive life. in freedom & joy**

Welcome aboard. I cannot wait to see where we grow from here!

~Blessings, Alexa ♥

Embracing Wholeness

"You do not have to be good... You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves." ~Mary Oliver


The Guest House, by Rumi

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival....

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

- Jelaluddin Rumi

The Power of Letting Go: Who or what are you ready to forgive?

Fall is the Season of Letting Go

As trees let go of old dead leaves, forgiveness is a letting go of that which no longer serves. Yes, your anger, grief and pain were there as loving ally messengers reminding you to self protect from further hurt or harm. But now you have healed so much, evolved your beliefs and perspectives, and are ready to expand more fully into the higher states of awareness you so carefully cultivated and crafted. If this is true for you it may be time for an autumn forgiveness practice.

The road to forgiveness is a process. But it is essential to open to forgiveness in order to release the pain and…

Forgiveness and Self-Love

FORGIVENESS and SELF LOVE are not meant to be exclusive. 

Forgiveness is just letting it go. But self care - self love - must also accompany forgiveness in order to find the relief you seek from hurt, anger, fear and suffering. You may need to forgive yourself and walk away from toxic people who harm you in order to experience lasting peace and wellbeing, the ultimate gifts of letting go. 

You cannot experience true forgiveness (lasting forgiveness) while giving up your personal power, aka your Truth. (Taking care of yourself via your truth is your self responsibility as an adult.) You must find your own way to honor both.

If you are on the path to forgiveness, and really we all are whether…
