Thanks for the question Fiona - you raise a very interesting point - I'd say you've hit an important nail on the head.

Gateway 2 is all about the landing of that inner realisation that nothing is really going to serve us in life but walking the path of the constant conscious choice. This is what's been previously called "The Baptism" and I've termed "The Realignment" in my book. It's that deep "aha" upwelling from within that can leave one moved to tears for days (weeks even). It feels like coming home.

So now we're committed to walking the path in every moment, but that doesn't necessarily mean we know how to! So yes, there can be an integration period that goes on where we start to figure out how to make the highest choice and where the moment really leads us - to the confrontation of our distortions and the revelation of our gifts of beingness.

It's after we've been consciously walking the path for sometime that the pull towards Transfiguration may then kick in. It's normally tipified by the resolve to purify mind body and spirit in quite a powerful way. We'll be drawn into circumstances that bring out the inner child and teenager conditioning for example. But the full processing of this energy is only really going to begin in earnest once we've truly started walking the path. We may get tasters beforehand, but ultimately we'll know when it begins because it feels a bit like riding a rollercoaster!

I trust this helps
