Note: This is a throw back article from 2019, where I talk about early the days of my writing and Aurora. I’ve updated that article, for Taran Station.
The Ascension of Aurora….Again
It was almost ten years ago, when I sat in contemplation writing a document called “Aurora”, not knowing exactly what I was writing. Hell, I didn’t even know why I was writing it. All that was certain to me, was I had watched a motivational You Tube video related to Barbra Marciniak’s “Family of Light”. Shortly afterward “Aurora” was born.
The original document has only been shared with a handful of people, but over the years I have added to it in intricate ways. In fact, it became part of my most personal journals over the years, and you can even find pieces of it in this Blog. However, I never felt that I fully grasped what was in the works. Not even when a girl appeared in my dreams, and I started calling her Aurora.
It was almost a joke to me, because I had never been good at writing, and I’m sure the majority of my English teachers growing up would agree with that assessment. Simply put, writing has never come easy for me. Yet the universe often works in mysterious and beautiful ways. “Aurora” was in one way, an unexpected birth, but at the same time, was expected none the less.
She Talked About An Author
The mystery intensified roughly a year later, after I had returned home from school for the second time. I had been laying in my bed early one morning after a restful slumber, when a women with a beautiful accent started talking to me telepathically. She starting describing upcoming events we would begin to see unfold in our society, and how the public would react. This occurred around the time of the Snowden revelations, that followed shortly after the Mayan 2012 end date.
At the end of her communication, she mentioned an author who writes something unique, related to what we would be going through. Of course this caught my attention, and after the communication ended I wondered why she would mention such a thing. In fact I spent a lot of time, looking for authors who were writing content related to the things she talked about. Ultimately I ended up discovering many individuals, who were all writing wonderful books related to the coming times. When I thought of myself as someone who could write something as well, I laughed at the idea, and dismissed it almost immediately. “What could I possibly add to the conversation, that hasn’t already been said”, I thought.
At the same time, I continued to add to my original writing piece, never really thinking too much about it. When I did think about it, I tended to overthink, and even told myself at times that I was wasting my time because I couldn’t even write.
Yet, I continued to write, and actually started a number of new pieces but they never became anything other than practice for me. Instead the content I added to my original piece became more diverse, and eventually contained many of my dreams, and mystical experiences. Many of which were cryptic, but seemed to tell a multi-faceted story.
Almost A Decade Later Aurora Clicked
Only in the last couple of months, have I truly realized what Aurora is about. It finally clicked one evening, when I began outlining a novel. A novel that would take “non-fictional” mystical experiences, and put it in the context of a wonderful fictional adventure. Doing this would allow me to be creative, but also incorporate the soul of Aurora into something truly unique.
You see, in a sense Aurora is all of us, in that it’s about our collective adventure, told from the point of view of a single facet. Aurora may be a mystery to some, but it will be a mystery worth solving.
Currently I’m continuing to outline the novel, and it’s been a difficult but enjoyable process. I’m hoping to have the outline complete within a month, at which point I will begin the painful drafting process. In all honesty this is a huge effort for me, and I’m expecting the draft to take a year and change (Since I’m working full time during this process as well).
However, I will be sharing sneak peaks of “Aurora’s Ascension” here from time to time. So when they show up, feel free to give some feedback.
