I felt like a beautiful butterfly emerging from a long dormant cocoon.
I was on the cusp of something new and exciting,
and I could feel the power of what was to come…my journey into consciousness.
Journey into Consciousness may revolve around my story, but within each one of us is a story that is being written each and every day. We are constantly writing the story of our lives based on choices – whether we make these choices ourselves or they are made for us. The directions those choices take us form the foundation for our learning, spiritual growth, and even our happiness. From the moment we breathe that first breath of life to the moment that final breath exits our body, our life story is being written. As we become more aware and mindful of our own personal power, we are better able to make conscious choices, and give ourselves permission to take control of our destiny instead of leaving it up to fate.
I know that learning to love and accept myself for who I am and embracing all of my experiences as opportunities for learning and growth have been the catalysts for transformation in my life. I also know that this spiritual journey of mine has strengthened and fortified my soul and psyche so that I know that anything is possible, and that we, human beings, can learn to live the life that we deserve to live.
Over the years, I’ve learned that letting go of fear is a crucial part of spiritual growth, and as a human being, I know that fear is what has held me back and inhibited my ability to write this book for a long time. My personal fears about this recounting of my personal journey into consciousness revolve around the uncertainty of what is safe to share.
I acknowledge that the memories of my experiences are solely my perception – my viewpoint. As I tell my story, I do so with the intention of assisting others in awakening to the truth of who they really are and to help them live the life they desire. I apologize here and now if, as my early memories unravel, I inadvertently cause anyone hurt or pain, but my memories are crucial to the telling of my story, and it was Spirit who showed me which memories to share.
The memories I was shown are the pivotal ones that impacted me greatly in my early years. I was shown the memories and choices that molded and shaped me – creating who I am today. By shifting my perceptions, I have freed myself from self-imposed limitations. My past no longer defines me; yet I acknowledge the experiences that have made me the person I am today.
In Section One of this book, I relate my experiences prior to my spiritual awakening. Each chapter begins with a lesson I have learned and ends with a revelation as well as a message to facilitate your journey.
Section Two begins with my spiritual awakening, which I officially designate as May 1, 2008. I began journaling my spiritual path at that time and have incorporated excerpts from my journals. My objective in chronicling and including these personal “aha” moments of learning and clarity is to assist and support my fellow sojourners. During my journey into consciousness, I have utilized many tools that helped me move forward.
In Section Three, I share the tools and wisdom that helped me the most – those tools that I have found to be straightforward, uncomplicated, and therefore, easily incorporated into our daily lives.
In all three sections, I endeavor to share essential details of my story along with guidance and suggestions received from Spirit to help you move forward on your own personal journey into consciousness, and my primary objectives are as follows:
1) To assist in bringing an understanding of one’s life experiences and the consequences of choices made without blaming others
2) To learn to heal from the past through forgiveness and shifting perception
3) To allow ourselves to realize our full potential through empowerment and love
“Shelly is a remarkable and gifted woman whose passion in life is to help others understand more about what faces us on our journey, about our loved ones on the other side and also the growth that we have to go through in this physical life that we live. She is a blessing to many.” ~ Lisa Williams, International Psychic Medium and Teacher, author of Life Among the Dead and The Survival of the Soul
“Shelly has an amazing talent that she shares that takes you on a journey into consciousness. Her gifts and abilities help empower your soul to a new and higher level of spiritual insight. She is truly an angel among us.” ~ Nikki Pattillo, author of Children of the Stars: Advice for Parents and Star Children and A Spiritual Evolution
“To ascend even the tiniest step, we must look at ourselves openly and honestly – both our “Light” and our “Dark.” In Journey into Consciousness, Shelly has provided us with an outstanding illustration of just that. Within these pages, she has boldly exposed herself, offering herself as a living, here-and-now example to us all on just what it takes to… journey into consciousness. Yet, Shelly takes us even further than the story of her own journey; she continues on, suggesting tools and practices that may help shine light on our own unique paths!” ~ Lloyd Matthew Thompson, Author of Lightworker: A Call to Authenticity and The Galaxy Healer’s Guide
“At its core, Journey into Consciousness is a moving personal story of spiritual growth that will no doubt inspire all who read it to follow Shelly’s lead and create better lives for themselves. The ‘so much more’ is that Shelly doesn’t just tell her story: Interspersed within this heart-opening, life-changing story are revelations, quotes, affirmations, and meditations that give “we seekers of a better life” important make-sense tools that we can use to formulate our own plan of action and take control of our destiny. Whether you are just now putting your first foot forward, or you are already firmly on the path of spiritual growth, this book will facilitate your personal journey into consciousness.” ~ Sherri Cortland, ND, Spiritual Growth Expeditor and Author of Windows of Opportunity, Raising our Vibrations for the New Age, and Spiritual Toolbox
“Shelly has given a voice to her Journey into Consciousness as well as given her readers valuable tools to assist them on their own spiritual journey into consciousness. Shelly is truly a beautiful soul teacher and embodies this truth as quoted by Edward George Bulwer-Lytton, “The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes.” She inspires her reader with the wish to teach her/himself.” ~ Anthony Hidalgo
“Journey into Consciousness is more than a concept of spiritual life – it is both a sharing of one woman’s experience through the lens of living out her sacred contract in this lifetime and a guide to doing the same in your own life. We are each given the energies, challenges, and gifts needed to assist us in carrying out the work we are here to accomplish.
Shelly’s ability to see her life through the eye of a sacred contract no doubt shifted emotions, beliefs and sensations about who she is. The journey into consciousness is one of both healing and awakening. There is an element of each in Shelly’s story. As a spiritual teacher for our time, she goes on to share tools that are simple in nature, but mystical in their power to transform your life. Using her own life experience and the wisdom of her spirit, coupled with a regular spiritual practice, Shelly offers a new way of seeing yourself. There are powerful affirmations, meditations and suggestions for releasing points of stagnancy on your journey.
Journey into Consciousness is not only one woman’s story, but also a powerful tool to assist you in opening your heart, mind and spirit to all that is possible. Shelly is a powerhouse of positive vibrations, spiritual support and encouragement.
Journey into Consciousness is an embodiment of the spiritual journey. As you read through it, allow yourself to feel into what is true for you. Quiet the mind and let your inner voice be your guide. Open yourself to the possibility that your life is so much more than you may have recognized up to this point. There is a sacredness to who you are and how you came to be in this place—at this exact moment, you are exactly where you are meant to be.” ~ Jackie L. Robinson
“Journey into Consciousness is the fascinating story of Shelly Wilson’s journey into spiritual enlightenment. Shelly takes the reader on an emotional roller-coaster ride as she vividly recalls the momentous events in her life, beginning with her early childhood years. Shelly courageously bares her soul as she describes the sorrowful incidents that defined her life during a time when she concedes that she merely “existed.” It is easy to empathize with Shelly since most of us have experienced similar events in our own lives.
Shelly is a warrior – she never gives up – and this determination allowed her to expand her consciousness and spiritual awareness, so that she could start to “live” and not just “exist.” With a lot of hard work and persistence, she re-created herself into the happy and fulfilled spouse, mother, and intuitive medium she is today. And the good news for all of us is that we can learn much from Shelly’s journey as we strive to reshape our own lives for the better.
Journey into Consciousness is not just a great read; it is also a road map for all of us to follow as it describes many of the practical tools that Shelly used to achieve her remarkable transformation. I found this book to be comforting and inspiring, and I know that everyone who reads it will be energized to cast aside their negative emotions and embrace love and compassion for everyone.” ~ Garnet Schulhauser, Author of Dancing on a Stamp
