There’s a tendency to look outward to the objects of perception for solutions to our suffering. Turn inwards to the heart of experiencing itself, let go into the unknown. There’s nothing more eloquent, nothing more freeing than the direct experience of your own nature, prior to any assumptions, beliefs or conditioning – just this moment, as it is.
What is this website about...
This is a space for the exploration of awakening and integration post-awakening. I don’t separate between spiritual or non-spiritual, all is included. It’s just LIFE and exploring what it means to be human, what it means to be alive, what it means to suffer, and what it is to accept all into the embrace of our experience. Understanding what awakening is, what spirituality is and what they both are not – brings these lofty ideals of ‘enlightenment’ back down to lived reality in each and every moment. Learning what it means to transcend and include all that we are, all that we experience, into the broader context of open-awareness.
I’m not a teacher, I have conversations. I don’t place myself higher than you, different than you, more than you. I don’t claim to have all or even any of the answers. I’m here to support this conversation, as a mentor, a guide, a spiritual midwife of sorts, a friend – to walk hand in hand with you on this beautiful, messy journey of Self discovery.
We are all figuring out life as best we can. A lot of the people I meet along the way are looking to others to give them answers. I encourage each and every one of you who happen upon this blog to look into your own direct experience, use your discernment, listen to what others have to say and mark it against your own internal compass and intuition. Drop all your judgements about what you think you know and take a careful look, take a look prior to your assumptions. See if whatever they (or I) are pointing to stands up to scrutiny, does it point back to your own truth? But don’t take my word for it…. go looking for yourself!
So reach out and connect, I’m here for this ~ Imogen

The obsessive need to understand enlightenment or anything for that matter, is the very thing that’s stopping you from experiencing this present moment in its fullness. When resting in the present moment it’s seen that there’s nothing missing and no needs are... [Read More]

Transformation comes when the old conditioning and ways of thinking that inevitably cease to serve are let go of. Their cracks begin to show, yet there's still comfort felt in them as they're known like an old pair of slippers whose time of service has come to an end. But when life is calling for growth and...

'Peace chaser' is what I sometimes refer to the phenomena of someone seeking for the outward to always be peaceful so that THEY can then feel like a peaceful and spiritual person (I was one of those trust me....big time...). Spoiler alert: It's a trap, it's a red herring, it's the opposite of freedom, of liberation. It's a... [Read More]
When the dreams of imagination fall short despair finds its way to the surface of your awareness. Despair is what's left singing its sorrowful song and haunting the corridors of imagination when the is-ness of life has other plans for you... [Read More]
I saw an article about a popular video platform (ahem... shall remain nameless) banning "medically unsubstantiated" content today... It's not the first thing I've seen in recent weeks and months on various platforms that brings into question freedom of speech and censoring of content all in the name of trying to curb "misinformation" or "fake news". Once upon a time misinformation... [Read More]
Make friends with that aspect of yourself that you are rejecting or avoiding, those aspects that you judge or deem unsavoury. That which we reject are often those aspects that require the most love, the most compassion, the most kindness, the most attention in-order that they be integrated into... [Read More]
We're living in unprecedented times, certainly in living memory. And with unprecedented times comes uncertainty and a big step into the unknown. There's no blueprint to follow. No way forward that can be relied on and measured against. No absolute solutions and answers. We are left flailing in... [Read More]
"Love sometimes looks like having strong boundaries"
Story time... Boundaries are something I've always struggled with, in fact it's probably been THE number one struggle in life for me. While it's almost unrecognisably night and day compared with how it used to be, I still do struggle with it because that conditioning is so well ingrained. But luckily life shows up in... [Read More]
Q: How does one receive shaktipat? How does one receive anything?
Practically speaking nothing need be 'done' to receive shaktipat, other than a general 'yes' and open-heartedness to life's possibilities - I'd say this is true for receiving anything, from love to physical gifts and help, or even hard lessons in life. To receive is to be open and humble to receive... [Read More]
