Awakening Is A Way, by Irka Schmuck

March 17, 2012

Waking up

Awakening is sometimes hard. The body is aching. I’m longing to continue dreaming my dream. Staying unconscious. Floating between space and time.
Wake up, wake up, wake up – whispers the timer, whispers the soul, whispers the world.
Wake up to create the new world.
Wake up to make your dream come true.

Waking up means

To open eyes, that have been closed.
To notice the light.
To allow movement.
To get in touch with the world. Your environment.
To feel the flow.
To feel myself.
To feel what I want and what I don’t want.
To feel what I love, to feel what is moving me.

Awakening is a way

It is arising. More and more.
Twinkling eyes, moving fingers and toes, yawning.
I open my eyes, beginning to sense.
I dislike much of the things I notice. Much feels like it is not alive. Not known.
A cold breath is beating against me.
I prefer to dream again.
Then I open my heart. I warm up the air around me. I’m moving with the stream of love.

To be awake

To be awake feels good. It’s a pleasure.
When I wake up, I stand up, I begin to live; it’s fantastic.
Arising dynamic. Life.
Clarity in each movement. Silence. Awareness.
I decide. I do. I’m free.
I feel. Awakening senses.
I taste. I smell. I hear. I feel. I see.
I realize. Endless opportunities. Joy – flow.
The pain was worth it.
I move. I dance. I love.

I’m enamored with the phrase she uses to describe her work: New Communication. “Because I understand the healing, the consulting and the text work is all a kind of communication,” she said. By allowing all of her talents, she’s at the front edge of holistic business writing and alignment to purpose to achieve that with her clients. Irka is based in Germany, educated as a linguist, and gifted by experience. Her website is linked and is in German. You can Google her to find great snippets of conversations in English.
