Hi Linda! Happy 2011! What you are experiencing sounds so amazing. The 3am awakenings are common with many others I know. No doubt this is a special time to tap into our true selves, to expand our consciousness, and to experience special connections that cannot always be felt during our busy lives. I also understand what you mean about heart opening experiences--during my trip to Peru in 2010 I had a chance to visit an ancient stone portal...while spending less than 2 minutes in the portal touching the stones, I experienced tears, warmth coming from my head to my heart and finally deep gratefulness. Life hasn't seemed the same since. I would love to come and see you in New Zealand at some point...my intention is set...it's just a matter of time ;-) Love, Marisa.
Welcome to Architects. I love everything I've hear about New Zealand, which seems to have a fantastic beauty of nature, an awareness of sustainability and a way of life that many envy. I wish you well there and am happy to have you join us. We are an inspired, member created site. I hope you find it as interesting as I do and feel encouraged to share your own inspiration with the rest of us.
