What Awakening and Enlightenment Means To Me Personally

By Jennifer Elizabeth Masters

A reader asked me today, why I no longer feel empty, lonely or alone? What caused that shift in me and how does it change who I AM? 

I appreciate your question. Thank you!

Whether we are speaking about enlightenment, awakening, self-actualization or God Realization, the same holds true for all. When we become one with our High Selves, we no longer feel separate from The Divine Mind or Source Energy. We feel complete. 

A quote from Edgar Cayce explains it well.

“Remember there is no shortcut to a consciousness of the God-force. It is part of your own consciousness, but it cannot be realized by the simple desire to do so. Too often there is the tendency to want it and expect it without applying spiritual truth through the medium of mental processes. This is the only way to reach the gate. There are no shortcuts in metaphysics. Life is learned within self. You don’t profess it, you learn it” (8092-1).

The feeling of being lost, alone, lonely or having a vast void or a deep, dark pit of despair to fill with sex, drugs, relationships or material things is totally and completely gone. I feel blissfully happy no matter where I am or if I am alone or with another. I see the God in everything. I experience God in everything and everyone.

What Happened?

Pain causes us to suffer. When we resist life, we suffer. When we resist or avoid our pain, try to do everything without the assistance of the unseen forces (Divine Mind, Source Energy), we cause the pain to become even greater. 

I experienced tremendous pain, as most people did in their childhood. When I stopped resisting and began to go with the flow, life became easier. I listened to and trusted my Guidance. When I did, I was rewarded. I wrote about how this began in my first book, Odyssey Victim to Victory. My first book details my journey from pain, suffering into the light of awakening.

After Enlightenment

  1. A sense of Oneness with all including God.
  2. No sense of separation from God and me.
  3. I stopped taking things personally.

A Series Of Mystical Experiences

I struggled with relationships, money, addictions and food until I didn’t anymore. I had a brief experience of Oneness with everything that was phenomenal in 2009. I was found in two different places at the same time (bi-location) in 2012 by my son, David. I felt myself de-materialize as I lay down to take a nap in Boulder, Colorado. David saw me that very day on a pool deck in Atlanta, Georgia. I detail a lot of these experiences in my first book. Another book on awakening is coming after my current book Happy Here, Happy Anywhere.

From Sick, And Depressed To Vibrant Health

I was negative and sick. My thoughts caused me to have Fibromyalgia – which I healed through loving myself. I had an auto-immune disease which I healed through loving myself. I was angry, depressed and anxious. I cleared and cleared my energy field several times a week and before each client I served. Each energy clearing lifted my spirits and cleared my negativity, beliefs that didn’t serve me and my programming from before I was born into the present and future.

My depression and anxiety began to lift. My mind chatter cleared when I did mantras on a daily basis. My mind became quiet. I loved all of my flaws and faults. To the point of pissing off my son’s girlfriend. She said my flaws weren’t cute. I laughed!

I Tested The Waters of Religion

I tried out different churches from Presbyterian to United Methodist, Unity, Jain, Hinduism, Buddhism, you name it, I tried it. I found that no religion was my path. My path is the path of LOVE.
Instead of fighting with God, (Source, Creator) I aligned my will with The Divine. I asked every day, “What will you have me do today for your people, God?” I did it without question. I became obedient. 

I Let Go

I let go of pleasing others. I stopped worrying about what they thought of me or what I did. I stopped trying to make my children, parents and family happy. I stopped trying to control everyone. Life became easy when I went with the flow rather than attempting to push like a salmon swimming upstream.

As I became more loving to myself, my field expanded and drew more loving people to me. People I need to talk to just show up in front of me, or I see them with a glow around them.


WTF? If you were to see me as a teenager, or even as an adult, obedient wasn’t my middle name! I am a maverick, a wild stallion without the testicles (well maybe just a little of them) a butterfly that flits from flower to flower, morphing every nine or ten years choosing a different field to pollinate. I have been told I am a contradiction. Wild yet calm, ecstatically happy yet serene. The truth of the matter is it doesn’t matter what you define me as the bottom line is that I AM LOVE.
