"All healing is an act of Self-Liberation" ~ Jeanette Amlie
Welcome to Blue Earth Awakening
This website is about transforming trauma into spiritual awakening. It is my gift of love & support for all those who are faced with the sometimes tumultuous process of personal transformation. It's also my thanks to all of the amazing people who helped me on my path of healing, for I know that the best way to thank them is to share what they shared with me. Everything on BEA is a result of my own personal path of transformation, including my formal training, my own experiences & my spiritual journey & I have endeavored to share it from a personal rather than clinical point of view.
My goal is to reach out to those people who may be confused & frustrated about their life and sometimes even their sanity. My hope is that rather than criticizing ourselves for our failure and desperately seeking a diagnosis for "what is wrong with us", we can begin to see that there is indeed a light at the end of what may appear to be a long dark tunnel. And that light shines from within..........♡ Jeanette Amlie
How do you turn a Nervous Breakdown into a Conscious Breakthrough?
Have you reached a point in your life where the ways you have used to be in the world simply aren't working anymore? Have you read self-help books & analyzed your life trying to understand what could have created the pain, unhappiness, or loneliness that you are experiencing? Has a good night's sleep become a thing of the past or are inexplicable fears & anxiety wearing your nerves raw. Or maybe depression & hopelessness have descended upon you and you just can't shake them.
Any and all of these signs and symptoms can be pointing to what is commonly called a "nervous breakdown". But what is a nervous breakdown anyway? And what can possibly be done to turn it into a conscious breakthrough to a new way of living that feels more naturally aligned with who you really are? Well, that is precisely what this whole website explores.
On these pages you will find articles, information, tips & tools designed to help you understand more about how your nervous system acts as a conduit for your body, mind & soul during the process of transformation & awakening.

Lately I have really begun to feel the diminishment of the extreme polarities I have experienced for most of my life. This has never been more pronounced than it has during my last 6 years in this high alpine valley. It has been a microcosm of the world of duality for me with a spiritual, liberal, alternative town and culture in the east side and an earthy, conservative, conventional town on the west side. I now see how much I needed both "realities" to work their magic of transformation on my psyche and soma.
