Back in 2014, during one of our Lights "weekends" (our workdays traveling to various centers in the US offering Crystal Light Bed sessions) in Bethesda, MD, Derrick was conversing with a particular woman who came for a session, Nancy Seifer. Nancy was researching and writing an article about 'the new kids' for her website whenthesoulawakens.org and in her words,
"This past summer I decided to learn more about 'the new kids' and what they might signify in terms of the predicted birth of a new era at a higher a higher turn of the evolutionary spiral. After reading the few books I had collected, my research took an unexpected turn. Two awakened souls magically appeared on my path. Derrick Quinn and Andrea Stormes (one Indigo and one Crystal child by their own estimation) graciously agreed to be interviewed for an article about the reality of these new paradigm kids. Their stories, insights and perceptions form the substance of this report."
To set the context of when this interview (link @ end of post) took place, at this point in our journey, Derrick and I were living at his family home in western PA for about a year and a half. We began traveling once a month for about 2 days offering Lights sessions, earning just enough money to cover our most basic needs. The rest of our time was spent in seclusion.
It is very common in advanced stages of a spiritual journey for the spiritual initiates to take periods of renunciation from the world and all normal things associated with living in the world. One is essentially in hermitage with God, surrendering deeply and essentially allowing (or resisting) parts of yourself to die, which while painful, retrieves and rebirths new parts of the Self.
While these practices of renunciation are quite common in Eastern traditions, in America where ambition and productivity are glamorized and worshipped, the decision and undertaking is often perceived as an extreme taboo and met with some form of resistance or backlash from the friends, family, and community of the renunciate.
Fortunately, through many decades of devoted meditation, Derrick's parents had enough insight into this stage of spiritual development to accept, honor and nurture our choice of stepping out of the world. Their support during those 5 years led to the cultivation of an inner richness beyond description.
The depths of the implications of surrendering so deeply are vast. We were confronted with deeply embedded subconscious wounds, a part of us from our birth inheritance into this 3D world. We cleared and cleared, transmuting that within our consciousness, within our bodies, as an offering to ourselves, the world, and the collective.
During this time we used highly advanced Vedic principles of surrender combined with each of our already advanced capacities for Light. This is something that a soul earns through positive karma (over lifetimes) and fierce loyalty to Divinity Itself. When Andrea and I combined our already advanced capacities for Light, the implications of that unification were profound and beyond belief to modern styles of thinking and what is commonly considered to be within the realms of belief and what is possible.
And this state, this realm, this space is where we lived, and this is how we lived (and how WE LIVE) every second of every day 24/7 RELENTLESS CLEARING, to advance our own consciousness, to stretch the bodies' capacities to hold Light, and to assist the evolution of the planet as a whole.
Believe it or not, this is where we lived and what we did. And for all intents and purposes are still doing on a more effective and efficient level from where we began.
We've shared this article, only with Derrick's parents and a young awakening client. And as I (Andrea) write this, I feel a tinge, a wincing in the body, something more to clear, something more to Love...
