Answers to our FAQ
1. Who is behind GYA?
GYA is supported by volunteers and the founders Selene Urban and James Melouney.
2. What does "Awakening" mean?
“Awakening” is a misunderstood and overused word. It’s also not quite accurate.
Depending on your background, you may have heard of Kundalini, Shakti and Shiva, Qi, Chakras, Nadis and Meridians, Tao, Tantra, the Holy Spirit or the Holy Ghost. These words all point to truth but they are also children of culture. And like all words, they are limited in what they can describe or explain.
3. How do I know if I am experiencing an "Awakening"?
The path to “awakening” is different for everybody. Some people may feel lost or confused, dissatisfied or unfulfilled with their life. Others may feel a deep curiosity or hunger for truth and a calling from deep within them toward something unknown. And others might not experience any “signposts,” receive any “signals,” or feel any “calling.” Their consciousness simply shifts and they begin experiencing life differently—physically, emotionally, energetically or mentally.
Many times, the journey involves confusing, conflicting and disorienting experiences. You may begin to question everything you’ve known, what you’re doing here on earth, whether there’s more to life than what most of us can see with our eyes, and what the ultimate purpose of your life really is.
Whatever you’re experiencing now or in the future:
Don’t repress—safely express.
You don’t have to walk the path alone.
4. What happens after you "Awaken"?
“After” you “awaken,” pure remembrance of truth and conscious attunement to life itself will have manifested in your life.
You may be guided to embody your life’s purpose. You may be guided into a sacred, intimate connection with your perfect life partner. Or into experiencing a true balance of the feminine and masculine. You may feel tremendous highs and know that you are supported during your lowest lows. You may find perfection in life’s imperfection, in every single moment. Or what it truly means for life to touch you; what it means to truly surrender and trust completely.
You will be guided directly to your truest needs and ultimately, you will be guided to return and remember Home.
5. Do I need any previous experience to "Awaken"?
No, you don’t need any “previous experience” to “awaken.”
Your awakening will unfold according to the plans and criteria of life. It is one
While it is true that “before” you consciously remember your truth you will pass through many experiences. It is equally true that every journey is different and there are no “set in stone” criteria other than what is determined by life. Whichever way your journey is supposed to unfold, it will unfold.
If you feel drawn to GYA, we will always welcome you with an open heart and conscious mind.
6. Can "Awakening" help me in my relationships and daily life?
The moment you truly remember, you depart from the mode of ego ( mind ) operation and start being guided by a more intelligent system.
Whlie the ego ( mind ) protects our body and identity, it can also prevent us from experiencing a profound consciousness.
Life energy guidance knows exactly what you truly need in this life and it can also grasp what the mind cannot: the many interconnected and intersecting variables at play within and between all our lives. As you surpass the mode of ego ( mind ) identification and operation, your relationships will deepen as you learn to truly love yourself, truly love others, and connect with your partner in a way that brings you closer together & provides you both with exactly what you truly need. You step into the role of and finally embody the divine feminine or divine masculine that has always existed within you. You experience a sacred union with your life partner.
In your daily life, you may feel tremendous highs and know that you are supported during your lowest lows. You may find perfection in life’s imperfection, in every single moment. Or what it truly means for life to touch you; what it means to truly surrender and trust completely.
Your awakening will deliver you to experience life in the way that you have forever been called to experience it.
7. Can "Awakening" help me in my career or business?
Yes, just as “awakening” may touch your relationships and daily life, it may also affect your career or business.
Despite what our minds may perceive, we are part of a whole and each of us holds a unique gift and specific contribution. The further that we “stray” from offering this gift, the stronger we are called toward it through feelings of dissatisfaction, lack of fulfillment or low energy, or feeling a calling from deep within us to something “unknown.” Yet even after you discover your gift and feel the desire to offer it to the world, additional “challenges” await you. The knowledge, skills, support
Life energy guidance can directly guide you to the resources you need to offer your gift to the world so that you can fulfill and embody your life’s purpose.
