A Selection of True Awakening Experiences Part III – The seasons of our lives




I was asked to take part in a writing adventure by Barbara Franken, a wonderful lady with a

beautiful blog.  You can view her inspiring website at:




I was asked to write about my experiences which moved me, awakened me and ascended me

on my shortstop journey here on earth.  You can read similar stories in October which provide a

glimpse into the awakening and the ascending process of other people.  These stories appear on

her blog with the link provided below:







The four seasons in Canada do not happen in certain parts of the world but seasons can

still happen no matter how subtle they may be.  Mankind’s spirituality can also be felt in

the four seasons of the self as well.  Seasons have awakened me spiritually every year and I have

ascended simply by being and by listening to the whispers of the seasons.

If I have tweaked you with one thought, one example, one comparison or one image that

you love then I have brought you into an awareness. You have been awakened and you

have ascended into your consciousness no matter how insignificant the thought may be as

long as you felt a vibrational shift.  It is another spiritual step you have taken on your


One can experience the IAM, just being, oneness, and then be still which can

produce a greater awakening but not necessarily a more startling ascension.  For me, it is

experiencing the mundane where I find the mundane experiences produce astonishing

epiphanies and significant feelings of ascension.  We are mind, body, and spirit.  Our minds

awaken us, our bodies react and our spirits ascend.  Aligning ourselves with truth, our spiritual

power becomes ours and with this spiritual power, we ascend vibrationally with love and

with tranquility which our self, (IAM) transcends into an elated consciousness.





Winter’s lullaby begins and Winter’s breath lays a white coat everywhere before us.  When

I was a child I loved Winter and the hours of play outside to me was entertaining until our little

extremities were numb.  I remember snow-caked mittens and long icicles hanging from the

eaves which were a delight to taste despite mother’s warnings.

Winter to me was white death and the word made me cringe.  Eventually, Winter has

taught me that death is not permanent and life continues.  The stillness of Winter is a time

for rest and also for your next spiritual cycle to begin.   The hush of babies sleeping is waiting to

be awakened in Spring to renew the process once again.  It is a season of reflection as Winter

magically receives and prepares Spring, Summer, and Autumn for future activities just as we

receive spiritual awakenings and spiritual gifts throughout the years as well.

Winter has awakened me to know its gentleness, serenity and its beauty.   Everything in life

which produces a love vibration brings you joy and happiness.  You awaken and you ascend in

consciousness.  Make your life one to rest, to observe, to reflect, to feel serenity, to be at peace,

and most of all to feel love as we are always held in its cradle.  Remember beneath the snow

there are seeds.





Winter’s icy torment follows Spring and when the sun draws closer to earth, the Spring

thaw occurs and we see Mr. Winter melt himself away.  Springtime is the land of

awakening where many plants emerge out of the ground and trees don their leaves since a


Many births take place and all births seem to be in a rush.  There is a cleaning to be done

which Autumn left behind and Winter has covered up.  The decayed leaves and the smell of

renewed earth is two of my delights in Spring which invigorates me out of Winter’s


The perpetual nature of Spring births awakens me to shed my old ways which are no

longer necessary and once again we slip into our newer skins which sees themselves in

the Spring of their awakening.  Spring offers rejuvenation and a promise of growth not only

in nature but in oneself as well.  Can you imagine a tree sprouting from inside a seed?

Growing blossoms in the Spring.  Growing into a full leaf in the Summer.  Autumn is where

plants produce many seeds and a magnificent show of Autumn colors.  Winter-bare for

resting.  All from one seed!


Confidence in a seed


Only if we had,

our visions in a seed.

Without question.

Without understanding.

Just to let it be:

Into the invisible of confidence.

Which grows flowers.

Into recycling.




I feel the Spring of my life is a new beginning.   Gaia (Mother Earth) lets us feel a new

Spring over and over, year after year again with new eyes.   Spring is similar to being born,

physically, emotionally and Spiritually.  One can hope to maintain a childhood purity where

one can grow and bring that innocence forward into one’s consciousness.

I ascend knowing the awesomeness of Spring.  Its rapid growth, the offering of many

Spiritual gifts to the soul and also, its wonderful magical dance of miracles in nature and

within my Spiritual self.

Spring moves us forward with a renewal of our spirituality and brings us into a new

space of being.  From death, a birth arises, from a birth, death is inevitable and the cycle

continues on earth.   At this time, we enter another season – a season of exploration which

inevitably screams of Summer.





Our arrival into Summer is cherished by many.  People flock to the beach.  I love the waves

that swash upon the shore.  The sound brings peace and tranquility which hypnotizes me into


Another activity is venturing out in the woods and communing with nature which has a

peaceful and calming effect to my essence.  Going barefoot on the grass or  on another natural

surface is called earthing and grounding.  Follow the link to read more about the benefits

of earthing and of grounding.




Humanity needs peace.  Peace is simple yet is made complicated by mankind.  As more

people awaken, we will eventually tip the scale for humanity’s ascension.

Gaia keeps on giving and giving to humanity despite us harming her.  Heal ourselves and

we heal her as well and eventually, we will see Gaia continue her development into a new


Summer symbolizes adventure.  As we look inside ourselves, we are in the summer of our

soul with its explorative nature seeking where our spiritual development will take us to an

awakened state and to an ascension.  Summer is the youth and adulthood of our existence

before we feel Autumn’s yawn and where we feel the serenity of our golden years or Autumn

years which presents itself at our doorstep.





A switch in time slowly turns and with a gust of a colder wind, we quickly slip back into

Autumn.  Autumn above all is my favorite season.  Gaia begins with her paintbrush by dabbing

trees from her multicolored palette at hand.  A final masterpiece is trees that are set ablaze.

Autumn’s bountiful harvest signifies a lessening of labor and a time of an awarded rest.

The pumpkin patch is one of my favorite activities when it comes to Halloween which is a

holiday that is celebrated in North America, Mexico, and a few other countries abroad under

different names.  Follow the link below and you will read about Halloween traditions and

other Halloween celebrations around the world.








In some parts of the world, frost is also known as Nature’s Grim Reaper which signifies a

slow-to-quick death to some plants.  We can still experience warmer weather at this time,

however, the first frost yields its magic to a splendid leaf color change.  Frost on the

pumpkin is a warning to us all.  Two thoughts come to mind, “As the killer frost drapes itself

over pumpkins and over the land do we not as humans experience a frost ourselves?  Is

there not a frost on all of mankind?”  I think humanity is at crossroads where truth is being

unveiled all over the world and humanity is begging for change.  I can feel a shift

happening.  There is love being sent vibrationally.  It is an exciting time to bear witness to

the joy and happiness being reborn and for humanity claiming true freedom which is our


Winter will soon be here and we will say goodbye to Autumn.  As Autumn matures it

sets the stage with a freezing chill to allow Winter to have its icy grip for a few months within

the cycle of recycling which begins anew.

Every awakening and ascension are an experience to open one’s heart.  No matter how small

or how big an awakening or an ascension is they are part of a spiritual web where all is

interconnected as one.  Autumn awakens me out of my Summer laziness and I ascend further

knowing the beauty of four seasons and also, the beauty in THE SEASONS OF OUR LIVES.

Be well and be at peace.

  1. Dear Joseph..
    What a beautifully scripted piece to end Barbara’s month of awakening experiences Joseph.

    I loved the reflection and compassions to Seasons, for many who begin their waking, one has to travel through their cold night of winter. As they reach the depths of darkness .. And as you beautifully rounded the end to winter, you ask us to remember the seeds that lay beneath the snow, ready to germinate in the warmth of Spring.

    Loved your Spring awakening and the poem of the confidence in a seed. As you take us through renewal and waking.

    Summer a wonderful description of our sense of adventure, our prime of life learning through living..

    I loved your Autumn’s Spiritual Frost analogy Joseph. Especially about the crossroads of truth shifting for change.
    The shift is now tangible, as little by little we see those Autumn leaves fall revealing true colours.

    I loved reading your Four Seasons Joseph. Interlaced with beautiful images and useful links.

    Grounding ourselves to the vibrations of Gaia, 🙂 I went along to read a little of that link, and saved to read further. I often turn off the modem like the last couple of days…

    Wishing you all the best for all the Seasons yet to come Joseph..
    A profound and beautiful read. ❤

    • Aww! Thank you for your review and compliments. They are much appreciate. Only another Gain child or Gain Child would appreciate and understand this poem with heart as you have done and others with just eyes Yes, the Autumn analogy of crossroads is one I view and can live by. I am pleased you liked the article. May Spirit keep you safe and sending healing as well. ❤


  2. What a delightful read you have created around our four seasons Joseph… Thankyou so much for giving us all such a beautiful ending… that is always a new beginning… for our selection of true awakening & ascension experiences.

    The peace, joy and wisdom you have allowed yourself to embody shines brightly through your words and pictures AND will help many hearts and souls to awaken!

    “As the killer frost drapes itself over pumpkins and over the land do we not as humans experience a frost ourselves? Is there not a frost on all of mankind?” I think humanity is at crossroads where truth is being unveiled all over the world and humanity is begging for change. I can feel a shift happening. There is love being sent vibrationally. It is an exciting time to bear witness to the joy and happiness being reborn and for humanity claiming true freedom which is our birthright.’

    I so resonate with your above question and answer… and feel certain that Humanity finds itself anxiously awaiting a big thaw that will uncover truths felt deeply within. BUT first we find ourselves in the northern world facing the cold winter that will take us further deeper within to allow for the death of old and allow for new seeds of potential to grow.

    Thanking you so much Joseph… Much love, Barbara (p.s. sorry for the delay but I was tying ends up with my mum and have just returned back to Spain)

    • I am pleased you like the post-Barbara. Thank you for your kind words they are always appreciated. I agree that every ending is a new beginning and we loop to a higher ascension next time around. We are at crossroads with the journey humanity is taking. Not to use a bible quote but it is effective where humanity’s wheat is being separated from the shaft. Perhaps those who choose love will be lifted with Gaia in the fourth dimensions and all others left in the third dimensions to experience what they created.
      There are no delays only when the time is ripe to read. If you had read earlier it may have been rushed and the impact of the post would have been lessened. Much love and I hope you are having a splendid day.
