What This Blog Is About

This blog was created as a platform to post my musings about life and the wakening journey that I have been on. I don’t consider myself an expert on this subject, but I do know my experiences that I have had in this area. Over the years, since the awakening experience I had after the suffering and subsequent death of my infant daughter and eventually my wife twelve years later, I feel I can speak on these things.

Feeling such Love and compassion for my fellow brothers and sisters on this planet, all I want to do is help others who may be going through the same process. You are not alone in this as many people all over planet Earth are awakening in huge numbers every day.

That being said, take what I share with a grain of salt. Do your own research as there are plenty of experts out there and much information to help you on your journey of awakening.

My name is Galen Rha. No, this isn’t my real name, but a pen name and online persona. Where it came from has special meaning to me and I will explain a little later. This ‘story’ of my journey to enlightenment started in July of 2007, with the birth of our daughter. Unfortunately, we never got to bring her home from the hospital and after suffering horribly for thirty-five days, she succumbed to multiple infections in her tiny body and everything shut down on her. My wife never recovered from that experience and frankly, at the time, neither had I.

Some eight months later, I had a heart attack. The doctors told me it was due to holding in my emotions that caused undue stress on my already diseased heart. A week later, I was released to go home to finish recovering. That night, in the darkness of the living room, I called out to the Universe and said, “I don’t know if it is the God I had been serving the past 30 years or if it is aliens, but if anyone out there can hear me, I need answers and I need them right NOW!” As soon as I said the word ‘now’, I instantly perceived myself as being the entire Universe, but also Nothing simultaneously. I don’t know if I was like that for hours or only mere seconds, as Time and Space no longer existed to me.

For the next two years I did a lot of deep soul searching to find out what had happened to me and came to realize I had what was known as an awakening, or some would call a spiritual awakening. I began to question everything I thought I knew about life and my place in it and after two long years, I totally walked away from Christianity. Since I had no evidence of the existence of a deity, I could no longer just take it by faith because a book says to. My experience of being one with the whole of existence, sealed the deal for me. It is so much bigger than any one religion.

Fast forward to this past October 9, 2019, when my wife of 13 years suddenly died without warning. As far as I knew, there was nothing wrong with her, but I never had a chance to say goodbye. All this after losing our daughter 12 years prior. I have been grieving hard these past six months, but I am back in my daily meditation and deepening my connection to All That Is. In doing so, I had remembered the name Galen Rha. You see, the name came to me in a very vivid dream some years ago, after my awakening experience.

One night in a dream, that I still remember most vividly, I heard a voice that sounded like my voice speak to me, “Galen Rha.”  I know it is a weird spelling with Rha with an ‘H’, but when I heard the name spoken aloud, I also saw it written in glowing letters of light floating in front of my eyes. At the time, I had no idea what it meant and with everything that was going on in my life, put it in the recesses of my mind, but never forgetting about it.

Interestingly, I have known for many years that I am called to be a teacher, but I have rejected that calling as life sort of got in the way of it. Now, six months after the loss of the love of my life and being in the middle of this world-wide pandemic, it has become clear to me what my calling entails. Having remembered that name, I decided to do a little bit of research and tried to see if anyone has ever had the name Galen Rha on the Internet. I was not able to find those two names in combination anywhere in recorded history. Strange that I heard saw it so clearly. What did it mean?

Well, I looked up both names and in combination with each other they are close in meaning, with slight variation. What I discovered was that the full name means ‘teacher’ and ‘healer’! This is what I knew I was called to do and had already started posting articles on my personal Facebook page about this very subject! Intuitively, with all that is going on in the world in the first half of 2020, I knew it was time to do what I was purposed to do, serve humanity as both teacher of enlightenment in helping people navigate their awakening experience as well as helping them to heal their own souls. Many people are going through the beginnings of the process and are confused and just need a little guidance on the journey.
Since I had already started writing, I have decided to start a blog, sharing what nuggets of knowledge I can give. I am far from an expert of the subject and there are many teachers out there that could do a better job of providing excellent information. But what I do have to contribute is my experience of going through the Dark Night Of The Soul during my path to Enlightenment and how I have navigated that process. Maybe, just maybe, it will help someone along the way.

Love and Light
