The Journey

Create quiet spaces in your experience and travel inward.

Attempting to understand consciousness with your mind is like trying to illuminate the sun with a candle.

Beyond the mechanisms of the mind is pure potential. The human condition is to create the perception of limitation; therefore, periodically take time to reside in the power of Now without any desire. Consciously embrace the present moment with mindful acceptance. It it contains the seeds of all possibility.

We are habitually trapped by thought – longing after specific outcomes, trying to hide perceived flaws, worried about how others see us, wondering if we have enough money to be safe, haunted by mistakes of the past – never realizing that thought itself blocks our ability to experience the love and joy that already surrounds us.

Your journey is unique. Expanding consciousness cannot be measured or quantified; however, it can be realized by noticing the extent of peace and connectedness in your daily experiences. As you drop the layers of self-imposed limitation, you’ll discover a beautiful truth… all that remains is love.


Your level of consciousness determine how you view the world.

Consciousness equals energy = love = awareness = light = wisdom
= beauty = truth = purity. It’s all the same trip.
~Ram Dass~

The filters through which we experience the world change as we are transformed. This continual process of awakening allows us to explore the infinite beauty of life and of one another in vibrant and exciting ways. There is always something new to discover.

Self love and compassion will eventually create an inner stillness that opens you to new dimensions. There are many ways to access your own divinity. Meditation, gratitude, music, ritual, art, sound or beauty can awaken your soul and teach you how to recognize what speaks to your heart.

This is the moment of your awakening. How will you use it? Self-realization comes through conscious experience; therefore, guide the energy which flows through you in ways that are loving, compassionate and conducive for your unique journey. Truth will make itself known.

Sacred Dance

Let your life be a dance with the Divine.

We can whirl out of nothingness,
scattering stars like dust….
The stars made a circle,
and in the middle,
we dance.

Every step you take on your life’s journey can be transformed through a conscious, evolving relationship with the Divine. Your joyous movements are a sacred dance, and your expression of joy is unique. Allow your heart to reside in the wonder and mystery of being alive.

When you honor the journey as sacred, something beautiful comes into being. Your interactions flow with a give and take of energy as your spirit expands with the love, light and laughter of awakening.

Release the heaviness of the mind by seeking to fully experience the present moment as it is. Truths will reveal themselves. The way forward will make itself known, and those who grace your experience will be inspired to explore life’s music in their own unique way.

Fall Madly in Love With Life

Open your heart to the moment and be the loving witness of all that you see.

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.  
~Nelson Mandela~

Are you willing to fall madly in love with life? The journey is not about creating a static, uniform approach to each moment… there is no right way to live and yet people often try to do what they perceive they should instead of exploring their unique destiny.

This moment is filled with wonder. Meditate, find your bliss and allow love and life to unfold naturally. Being alone will be beautiful. Spending time with others will also be beautiful. Your interactions will simply come from a place of love. Healthy relationships have a great deal of space within them. It’s up to us to fill that space with gratitude, openness, kindness and support as we engage with one another without expectation or demands.

When we function from the level of mind, we become exhausted. Our energy gets depleted by the effort of keeping it all together. This doesn’t just apply to being a workaholic, but also in all the ways we plan for contingencies, worry about the future and create safe and unnatural routines.

Life is a mystery to be lived. The willingness to step into the unknown and accept a little bit of healthy chaos into our experience allows us the freedom to fly. Find your own truth and learn from your experiences. Your vibrant, empowered energy will send ripples throughout the Universe as you participate in a conscious dance with the Divine.

Explore the Unknown

The stronger the person, the easier the surrender.

Surrender is not a weakness, it is a strength. It takes tremendous strength to surrender life to the supreme – to the cosmic unfolding.  

When embarking upon the journey of transformation, many believe the answers lie somewhere outside of themselves. Ultimately, the quest challenges us to drop the many layers of preconceived ideas and limitations until we simply become thrilled by the exploration of the unknown.

As old energies and outmoded beliefs are stripped away, we come to discover the wisdom which already resides within. No longer distracted by fear, everything becomes love and we are free to explore the depths and expansiveness of higher consciousness.

You bring something beautiful to the world that can only be discovered by dropping the need for safety. Life desires to express itself through you and you are here now for a reason. Allow the joy of the journey to lead you ever onward and all will make itself known in the perfect way at the perfect time.

You Are Everything

When you open yourself to receive, life pours into you.
The sun shines down and its image reflects in a thousand different pots of water. The reflections are many, but they are each reflecting the same sun. Similarly, when we come to know who we truly are, we will see ourselves in all people.

Separation is the illusion. As spiritual students, we seek to discover and explore the threads that create interconnectedness between us. What harms one, harms all. What heals one, heals all. Therefore; seek only to bring healing energy into your life experience. How you speak to yourself matters. What we do matters. Choose to be consciously aware of what you send out into the world.

Let your joy and loving kindness expand. The dance of awareness is ever changing and there is always something new to discover. Honor your unique path by embracing it and experiencing it to the fullest.

We are one with everything. Knowing this, how could one hate? Or harm? Or resent? Every soul is a master in the process of awakening. The only difference between us is how far we have come and our current level of consciousness. Ultimately, everyone will discover love and we will regale one another with stories of the journey.


Appreciation and Gratitude

Choose to greet each day with appreciation and gratitude.
“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep.” 

Throughout your experience you will encounter moments of awakening that change how you see the world. As your consciousness expands, you’ll explore the nuances of love that greet you at every turn. Beauty is enhanced and ultimately the layers of ego dissolve, transforming into compassion and wisdom.

Follow the promptings of your inner guidance. Your readiness and willingness to trust the processes of your awakening will draw in the teachers, situations and circumstances that facilitate your growth in a way that is most appropriate for you.

Layer by layer we transcend the levels of consciousness, incorporating the energy and lessons, broadening our vision and setting ourselves free. For most people this is a subtle transformative journey rather than an abrupt shift to a new level. Don’t worry about how fast you can awaken. The joy is in the journey. Embrace the day and discover the secrets it has to offer. Most importantly, love where you are and celebrate those who accompany you on the path of transformation.

Sacred Space

Any sacred space you create is a reflection of your inner wisdom and beauty.

“Your sacred space is a place where you can find yourself again and again.” 
~Joseph Campbell~

Everyone needs moments of stillness and reflection. It’s important to create sacred areas where you can meditate, express gratitude or enter Presence. Your intention will fill the area with love and peacefulness.

Each time you enter sacred space you are communing with the Divine. The more consistent you are, the more energy is utilized to create a safe haven for your soul. Then, when life feels a little crazy, you have a place to go when you need to find balance.

Sacred space is a reflection of your unique expression of consciousness. Fill it with items that awaken your heart or bring a smile to your face. Things that spark inner wisdom and grace often ignite inspiration, empowerment, creativity and potential.

You are beautiful. Love yourself enough to make maintaining your peace and balance a priority. Nothing is more important than your state of consciousness in this moment.


Care for one another. Be love.

“I will soothe you and heal you, I will bring you roses. I, too, have been covered with thorns.” 

Enlightenment ultimately removes all that blocks us from love. Ego disappears and only presence remains. From this space of stillness we discover that everything is love – action, inaction, kindness, life, death – and we walk through the world with innocence, hope and wonder.

This awakening is comparable to the scent of a flower which simply gives of itself. It shares its unique beauty without asking for anything in return and allows the love, light and laughter of the universe to flow through it and out into the world.

Be led by love and never forget that you are an amazing, evolving, beautiful expression of life. You have been drawn to read these words for a reason….

Love and Compassion

When you encounter those who interpret life differently than you, practice being a good listener and find compassionate understanding.
“Consciousness is not a destination at which we finally arrive. It is an ongoing, ever-deepening, infinitely expanding process, a journey that perhaps has no end.” 
~Shakti Gawain~

Unconsciousness is simply a lack of awareness and understanding; therefore, the way to raise consciousness is to purposely cultivate greater understanding of ourselves and of one another.

Everyone has a unique story. Their life experiences often determine how they interpret the world. With this in mind, consider how it must feel to be judged as “wrong” and how defensiveness can so easily come into play. If you can hold space for another and help them to feel safe where they are, you will be giving an incredible gift.

New perceptions and viewpoints can often change us in ways we’ve never imagined. When we choose to cultivate compassion, we create a space in which a transformation can occur.
