The Five Stages of Awakening, and More on the Final Stage of the Spiritual Warrior by Justin

This article by Mike Adams employs the fallacies of the medical system and society at large to describe a process of spiritual awakening. The piece does so using five stages, but the essential thread can be described in many different ways.

Truth seeking is the act of awakening, the process of coming in contact with and integrating the truth into our beingness. And like the grieving process, no one can do this for us. Each individual has to walk this path of awakening on their own, and in a world like ours, taking the first few steps can be incredibly difficult. But with each step one becomes more adept at the process, until eventually, all of life's hardships are transcended as one becomes enlightened. This final part we can call the Spiritual Warrior stage.

Facing our fears and the unknown is one of the chief goals of the awakening experience. That which we fear, we turn away from. That which we turn away from, we are unconscious of. That which we are unconscious of influences us beyond our control or perception.

Ultimately waking up, as Adams details in the final section of this article, is a spiritual journey. And when we finally realize everything that is unfolding on Earth is part of the supreme process of knowing thyself, and the universe by extension, all of the seemingly random and tragic events of our lives take on a new meaning.

Waking up is not an on or off kind of thing. It is a constant unfolding and exploration. Wherever you are now in this process isn't as important as the fact you are progressing. Each experience in life is like a piece of a puzzle, and when we've reached the 5th stage of awakening, we eventually stop trying to throw pieces away and begin the integration process. The final stage is about total reconciliation, which is what true discernment is all about.

Truth seeking isn't just about holding one idea is true over another. Truth seeking is about developing the skills to see how the truth is woven within all things. For example, knowing that a magician's trick is not real doesn't impart any understanding, it's just a surface level judgment; it is the first step in the discernment process. But contemplating how the magicians trick works not only reveals that it is ultimately an illusion but also why it is an illusion. This is what true discernment or reconciliation does, it completes the truth-seeking process by reconciling all the data into a holistic understanding. The goal is to blot out mystery with knowledge, to gain an understanding of how all the pieces fit together. 

Of course, in order to do this, one must embrace all information as part of the unfolding truth. Rejecting anything eventually creates a blockage that will need to be overcome later. But this is part of the process, and it should not be moved past until we are ready. Part of waking up, even for those at the 5th stage, is to embrace moderation, to digest as much as we can but not overwhelm ourselves with too much information. 

Once one has successfully seen the truth within a thing, they have gained new eyes to see. One can actually recognize at a personal level what the truth is, without having to rely on expert opinion or gurus. For example, if someone told you the sky was blue, and when you looked up it was cloudy, you'd come to understand that the truth behind what that person said was that they were incorrect. The statement was real, the words they used have form, even their misperception is real within the context of their mind, but when compared to the objective reality, an inconsistency is revealed. Seeing how all the factors fit together is what imparts understanding and truth recognition.

Anyone can say something's true or not, but only those who've completed a truth reconciliation process know precisely why. This is the goal of the spiritual warrior, to gain complete and total understanding, so as to arm oneself with knowledge and wisdom. 

And the byproduct of this final stage is increased empowerment, self-mastery, and emotional stability. Instead of feeling like we're the victims of life experience we begin to feel like partners in co-creation. Instead of feeling like life is an endless stream of uninvited events, we begin to embrace the spontaneity of what experience can offer us. We actually form the ability to judge reality via direct perception. 

The spiritual warrior doesn't need belief or faith anymore, they have knowledge and make decisions based on truth. The spiritual warrior is not deceived by fancy language or colorful imagery. Nor are they swayed by subliminal suggestions and social programming. And most especially, the spiritual warrior acts in alignment with truth, even if it goes against social norms. As a matter of fact, the spiritual warrior feels that it is their duty to embody the truth as much possible, leading others by example but never by force of will. Patience, persistence, and completeness are the allies of the spiritual warrior, who forges ahead on their path, and encourages others to do the same. 

Truth seeking gets easier as time goes on, so long as we are constantly pushing the boundaries of our understanding. For the spiritual truth seeker doesn't want a simple answer of yes or no, true or false, they want real knowledge and comprehension, which is a holistic process of using intuition and intellect, logic and feeling, to divine the truth of what IS.

Note: The article is written in a way which discusses the awakening process as a struggle to understand the darker aspects of our world. These things can be taken literally, but I found an allegorical approach of interpretation helps quell any fearful reactions that may come up as one reads the piece. The section at the end of the article is very uplifting and one should finish the whole work before setting it aside.

We are all witnessing a mass awakening sweeping across the planet. Over just the last several weeks, millions of people have newly awakened to all the following astonishing truths they never would have believed just a year ago:

• The EPA knowingly allows children all across America to drink lead-poisoned water, covering up all the evidence instead of alerting the public.

• The drug companies are in the business of "harvesting" profits from human disease, not saving lives or helping humanity.

• The political establishment has zero interest in representing the people. They only represent the interests of their corporate masters.

• Vaccines are unsafe and the CDC has covered it up for over a decade. Most vaccines don't even work!

• The entire mainstream media exists solely to protect the establishment, not to inform or empower the citizens. All news coverage by the media is planted by the establishment or distorted (or censored) to protect the establishment. Virtually no one trusts the media anymore, as reported by the media itself.

• Another global debt collapse is now imminent, and the central banks of the world are leading us to a ruinous economic catastrophe. (The subprime mortgage scheme from 2008 was just a taste of what's yet to come...)

• The Saudi government had a key role in the 9/11 attacks, which were allowed to happen by U.S. leaders agreeing to "stand down" military defenses so the attack could succeed. Now the Saudis are literally threatening to collapse the U.S. debt pyramid if they are outed as having a hand in the 9/11 attacks. (The international extortion game has begun...) The entire conspiracy, we are now learning, was deliberately covered up by the highest levels of U.S. government.

The Five Stage of Awakening

What's fascinating about all these accelerating revelations is not only that they are steadily waking people up, but that many people are still not ready for the full dose of reality they ultimately need to grasp if they are to survive the next few years.

This brings me to my point of this article, which I call the Five Stages of Awakening. It's sort of like the 5 stages of denial but in reverse.

Importantly, you can't force anyone to leap from stage one to stage five in this process. They have to step through them one by one, in their own time. Some people are able to move more rapidly through these stages and wake up very quickly; others suffer from psychological denial and can never achieve the higher stages of awakening because it conflicts too much with their worldview.

The most intelligent people, of course, are the ones who can step rapidly through all the stages, arriving at the "big picture" truth that's behind everything we are witnessing today.

With that in mind, here are the Five Stages of Awakening

Stage One: Everything is awesome, and the media tells no lies

This is the default stage for a typical citizen who believes the propaganda being pumped out by the state-run media. They don't even have to be an American, either: Chinese citizens who are living in Stage One believe the Chinese media. Canadian citizens living in Stage One believe the Canadian media, and so on.

Stage One people believe that the government always means well, the media always tells the truth, vaccines have zero risks and Big Pharma is genuinely trying to discover cures that end all diseases and put themselves out of business.

The best word to describe Stage One people is "Naive." They are, of course, utterly clueless about what's actually headed our way in terms of economic and political chaos. These are the people who are caught completely unprepared in every disaster (and they beg for government to come save them).

Stage Two: Hey, they're lying to us!

Stage Two citizens realize the establishment has been lying to them all along. One day they "wake up" and realize that all the propaganda they're being told by the media and government contradicts what they see with their own eyes.

For example, when the government ridiculously announces that unemployment is only 4.9 percent, but people look around and see that half their friends can't find jobs, they know they're being lied to by the government.

When parents obediently subject their children to vaccines and then suddenly a child becomes autistic (after the post-vaccine fever and seizures, of course), they then "wake up" and realize they were lied to all along about vaccine safety.

When voters who have been told all along that their vote is a "sacred function of democracy" suddenly find out that their votes don't count and all the elections are rigged in advance, they graduate to Stage Two.

Stage Two can best be summed up as "Skepticism of the establishment." Right now, perhaps half the voters in America are in Stage Two.

Stage Three: Whoa! They're actually trying to profit from our suffering and destruction...

Stage Three is achieved when a Stage Two person digs a little deeper and starts to realize that the vaccine industry deliberately manufactures faulty vaccines that don't work in order to spread more disease (to sell more vaccines, of course).

When a person realize that the cancer industry's most common treatments actually cause cancer -- and yes, chemotherapy causes cancer -- they often move into Stage Three realizations about how the establishment is literally trying to profit from their own suffering and disease.

The actions of the pharmaceutical giants and food giants makes no sense to a Stage One or Stage Two person. They think all pesticides are harmless and GMOs are good for you. But a Stage Three person comes to realize that Big Food and Big Medicine work in conspiracy to first unleash diseases upon the population (through nutrient-deficient processed food) and then earn a fortune selling prescription medications that claim to "treat" all those diseases (but actually cause yet more disease).

Stage Three is also realized when someone wakes up to the fact that the medical industrial complex initiates wars and global conflict to profit from all the destruction and rebuilding. There's no faster way to create "economic activity" than bombing some third world nation into oblivion, followed by a World Bank racket arrangement that pays globalist corporations to rebuild the same infrastructure that was just destroyed.

When people wake up to Stage Three, they accurately begin to see themselves as human cattle existing in Matrix pods, with the tentacles of the corporate-government-fascist establishment sucking the life out of them (via taxes, mandatory health insurance, and so on). Right now, perhaps ten percent of the U.S. population is in Stage Three.

Stage Four: They're actually trying to kill us

Stage Four is achieved when you finally realize that humanity has entered an era where the governments of the world are actively trying to depopulate the planet. There are too many people in their eyes, and they want to rid the world of around 90% of the population in order to "save the planet." Click here to read a great overview on all this at

In Stage Four, you begin to understand why glyphosate herbicide is sprayed on wheat crops (that aren't even GMO) to promote cancer and infertility. You come to realize why vaccines in Africa are covertly laced with sterilization chemicals and why high-level virologists openly talk about wanting to genetically engineer viruses that would wipe out humanity.

Suddenly you begin to connect the dots across all the depopulation talk by people like Bill Gates and California Gov. Jerry Brown. Add in the rise of automation robots and the mass wave of youth unemployment that's about to become reality over the next two decades, and it doesn't take long to figure out that the globalists' vision of our future world doesn't include very many humans.
Suddenly, all the experimentation with Ebola, Bird Flu and biological weapons makes sense. Geoengineering, water fluoridation, the mass metals poisoning of city parks with "biosludge" (composted human sewage and toxic industrial waste, sold as "organic fertilizer")... it's all part of a literal agenda to poison the population and thereby drastically reduce the number of humans living on the planet.

The same governments of the world that once worked to support population growth and create large, high-population society are now actively working to depopulate the planet. Part of this will entail replacing physical workers with robots, then finding ways to eliminate all the "useless eaters" with mandatory vaccines, cancer-causing chemicals or covert sterilization agendas.

Stage Five: This is all a spiritual war being fought between life vs. destruction

The final stage of awakening is reached when you peel back the worldly facade and unveil the deeper spiritual evil that has infested our world. Ultimately, the desire to destroy life through war, GMOs, pharmaceuticals, herbicides and vaccines is rooted in a spiritual war being waged between good and evil.

On the side of evil, you find all the globalist corporations, the agricultural food giants, the GMO pushers, the vaccine fanatics, the cancer industry, the lying mainstream media and people like Bill Gates who see human beings as a plague to be wiped out. On the side of good, you find scientific whistleblowers, natural medicine practitioners, organic food growers, independent media and other protectors of life and nature.

A spiritual war is under way right now, where people who are seething with evil -- like Hillary Clinton -- are trying to obtain great power so they can use it to assault humanity and destroy all that is good. Clinton is 100% pro-GMO, pro vaccine mandates, pro Big Pharma, and so on.

As part of this spiritual war, the entire political establishment and media establishment viciously attacks all those who are good while celebrating those who are evil. It is now "bad" to be a good person who seeks to protect children from deadly vaccines and toxic GMOs, for example. But according to the media, you're a "good" person if you support the depopulation agenda of the globalists, with all its vaccine mandates, chemotherapy "treatments", toxic GMO foods and sick-care system that harvests human disease for corporate profits.

Evil feeds off human suffering

Across society today, you are witnessing the final surge of evil and its attempt to forever defeat good so that evil can feed off the suffering, pain and destruction of activities like the harvesting of organs from partially-born babies. Note carefully that those who exposed this practice were charged with crimes, while those who actually carry out the practice of chopping up living human babies were celebrated by the media. When babies are butchered by men with machetes in some African nation, it's called "genocide," but when babies are butchered at Planned Parenthood centers across America, it's called "science."

The aim of the evil that has infested our world is not merely the destruction of life, but the invocation of great suffering, especially of children. This is why vaccine mandates are being unleashed in California and elsewhere: Children must be ritualistically sacrificed, damaged, maimed and murdered to appease the dark forces of evil that now run the CDC and the vaccine industry. California Sen. Richard Pan, who fronted the mandate, is a great example of a human vessel now occupied by demonic forces.

We are not dealing with pure humans anymore, you see. Many of the people who sit at the top of the drug companies, CDC, FDA, USDA and EPA resemble dark, demonic souls occupying human bodies. It's difficult for many people to understand this at first, because they tend to judge people by the way they look on the outside. But on the inside, every shred of humanity has been evacuated from many of these people, replaced by dark apparitions that now influence their minds and bodies.

"Can a country with deep Christian roots like Mexico find itself at the mercy of demons? Some in the Church fear so," reports "And as a result, they called for a nation-wide exorcism of Mexico, carried out quietly last month in the cathedral of San Luis Potosi."

Similarly, the National Catholic Register asks, "Can — or should — an exorcism be done for the United States, as was done in Mexico this past May? Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez, the archbishop emeritus of Guadalajara, performed the rite, together with priests from across Mexico, at the Cathedral of San Luis Potosi in a closed-door ceremony. The purpose: to drive away the evil responsible for skyrocketing violence, abortion and drugs in that predominantly-Catholic nation."

It may sound fantastic and unbelievable, but nearly every government regulator in the United States is now headed by someone who is being influenced (or even possessed) by dark forces of evil. This is exactly why they repeatedly make decisions that knowingly harm people and maim children in particular. It's not an accident... it's all part of their plan to maximize human suffering and destruction. Why do you think the EPA, for example, allowed the children of Flint, Michigan to drink poisonous water for almost a year without telling anyone? The answer is that they wanted to poison the children. It wasn't an accident...

These government elitists do not answer to the American voters, you see. They answer to their dark lords who demand the ritualistic sacrifice of children through any means necessary. To truly understand this, you need to become familiar with the occult practices of globalists. A good starting point is this film on Bohemian Grove. From the description:

Since 1873, the Global Elite Has Held Secret Meetings in the Ancient Redwood Forest of Northern California. Members of the so-called Bohemian Club include Former Presidents Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan.

So what's the answer to all this evil that now threatens to consume our world?

Practice love and compassion while protecting life.

As you seek to empower others, uplift others and protect others, you contribute to the good in the world. By definition, you beat back evil and make it more difficult for evil forces to carry out their plans.

When we say "NO!" to toxic vaccines that harm our children, we defeat evil. When we say "NO!" to psychiatric drugs that harm our minds, we defeat evil. When we buy organic or grow our own food, we deny financial power to the biotech industry, starving them of the economic power they need to carry out more evil.

Defeating evil is truly as simple as practicing good consistently, repeatedly and with a sense of genuine love for humanity in your heart. Each and every day, you make a hundred small choices that seem inconsequential at the time, but they actually add up in a big way. By making those choices in the interests of the protection of life, you multiply the good in the world.

Although most people are not psychologically ready to accept the full truth of what's happening in our world, many people are now moving into deeper stages of awakening. You can help them by sharing information, asking questions and doing your homework to learn what's really happening in the world around you. The deeper you dig, the more you'll be astonished at the wickedness and deception being carried out by the dark forces in our world. It is your responsibility to oppose them -- and ultimately defeat them -- so that we might all share a future world that prioritizes life, love and compassion.

That's what my work entails every day here at Natural News. I seek to empower, uplift and inform others with the kind of knowledge that can set you free from the prisons that have been constructed for you by the globalist establishment.
