I apologize for being late in getting this issue of the DWS newsletter out for the month of February. While I might have been a 'slacker' in some ways, I certainly have been enjoying life to the fullest.

And, after all, isn't that what the spiritual journey is all about?

Thank you for your understanding -- and all the lovely emails that you send to me directly or through messages on Facebook. I love hearing from each one of you.

In peace, love & joy,

The Journey of Awakening

-- Ashley Warrenton-Smith

There is a great deal involved in our spiritual journey toward enLightenment. Most of us spend far more time deeply enmeshed in the drama and illusion of third-dimensional reality than we do on gaining our spiritual freedom. Fortunately, we are blessed to be given many wake-up calls.

The universe tends to speak to us softly at first. If we don't listen, however, it is common for it to turn up the heat in order to get our attention and begin to wake us up to the fact that we are not the physical body.

We are Spirit in a physical body.

It is our physical body that often is utilized to wake us up through PAIN, an acronym for Persistent Avoidance of Inner Needs. Some of us are quite proud of our ability to resist or overcome pain rather than to learn from it. We actually expect to experience pain rather than to understand that it is not necessary when we identify and transform the underlying emotional cause of the pain.

Some of us alleviate it through alcohol, street drugs, over-the-counter drugs and prescription drugs. That pretty much guarantees the universe will turn up the heat.

Others of us use our addictions to food, sex, danger, work and more to try to counteract the pain. That also pretty much guarantees the universe will turn up the heat even higher.

Ultimately, we sometimes must hit rock bottom to be willing to say, "I will NOT have this!" -- and mean it. At that instant, when we really mean it, we may be ready to follow Spirit, to surrender, to begin to let go of the domination of our ego-selves and create spaciousness for Source to help us remember Who We Really Are.

As we gain Divine knowledge by picking up and reading the book that fell at our our feet, by really listening to the lyrics of the song that played at the perfect moment and gave us goosebumps, by beginning to notice the signs and wonders that we are being given, going inward and asking for their message, by finally sitting down to meditate and pray with a single pointed focus of attention, by attending the spiritual workshop that our intuition has been persistently bringing to our attention, we begin to respond to these wake-up calls.

As we do so, the universe responds and gives us more signs and wonders. I think of them as hugs and kisses from Source, whispers of Love: "I am with you always. Remember Me. Remember your-Self."

As as we persist through every challenge, we begin to open our hearts and minds to the miracles that have always been available to us. We can heal the underlying causes of our pain, whether it is physical or emotional. We can boldly face the pain and transform it. We can co-create far better lives for ourselves of love, joy and harmony. We can learn to be fully present and enjoy our sojourn in third dimensional reality, yet not be mesmerized by it. We can ultimately remember Who We Really Are and live Heaven on Earth, each of us in accord with the desires of our Spirit, which after all is the microcosm of the macrocosm, Source.

We can wake up.

My Journey

by Sylvia Winkler

I have been severely ill for much of my life. Before I found the DWS website and called Ashley I worked with another energy healer who told me through past life regression I had committed suicide in the mid to late 1800s. Finally someone said something to me that resonated. Unfortunately, she didn't know how to heal it and my symptoms continued.

I instinctively have pursued a spiritual path always seeking someone who could help me relieve these symptoms. When I called Ashley she immediately made time for me.

We worked for a total of about three hours over two or three sessions; I couldn't handle much at one time. I observed myself argue with her to some extent externally, but to a much larger extent internally. As I look back on it, I had a 'know it all' attitude that was deeply rooted in fear that what she was doing with me wouldn't work.

She meticulously brought me to congruence with releasing this but I kept popping out of being congruent. I became increasingly impatient and judgmental with Ashley internally which definitely did not help me participate in doing the work. In fact my strong reactions brought me quickly to a decision not to continue to work with her.

Several months passed and my symptoms worsened. In utter desperation I called her again. She remembered working with me and explained that I was having a massive temper tantrum of the soul with myself that manifested as holding on to my suffering with great intensity, even though my conscious mind and ego denied I was doing so. As she was explaining to me that in that former lifetime I had been Catholic and believed that taking my own life was a mortal sin, I felt myself stubbornly and intensely rejecting what she was saying. I did not make an appointment with her for another session.

More months passed and my symptoms continued to worsen. I surrendered -- to some extent -- and called her once again. She was very patient and gentle with me. She explained that she was not going anywhere and that I could take all the time in the world to decide whether I wanted to work with her to clear this.

She spoke again of something she had tried to explain to me in our first session and in my later follow-up call. She said that I had lived many lifetimes in many places, had experienced some wonderful lifetimes and some very challenging ones. She explained that the spiritual journey of transformation was typically not a one-session experience and, in challenging situations like mine, certainly not likely to be even a few sessions. She said, "It takes whatever time it takes. I will give you the best that I have to give but in the final analysis you are your own healer. Only you can decide -- with every fiber of your being -- that you will not have this any longer as your reality and fully surrender to Source so that you can release it."

This made me inexplicably furious. On some level I knew she was trying to help me but this was not what I wanted to hear so I hung up on her. I must confess I felt great after I did so.

More months passed. In utter despair I called her again. I apologized and asked if she was still willing to work with me. She said she was and asked me what I wanted. I told her I was committed to go the distance this time.

Ashley calls it 'showing up'.

And so we began our regular monthly sessions. While there were a lot of processes she used with me, the most frequent ones that she used over and over again seemed to be congruence and layer cake, which is releasing the temper tantrums of the soul I mentioned earlier. At first I could not feel the work. I was too angry. Slowly as we persevered, little changes began to happen for me. Emotionally I began to relax more with each month that passed. The more I relaxed, the more my symptoms lessened.

Ultimately, I was able to fully heal that lifetime and my long-standing emotional reaction toward myself and God. I am a force to be reckoned with, apparently. I literally had to be assisted by Source and Ashley to get out of my own way. As I did so my life lightened up and changed for the better. Words cannot express how extremely grateful I am that Ashley did not hang up on me the time I called her finally ready to do the work.
