Hello. Thanks for stopping by. One day, in search for truth, I came across a public domain book called "THOUGHTS ARE THINGS." While processing this life altering knowledge, my soul was awakened. Midway into the book, I said myself: “Aha! I knew it all along! We are all extensions of God pretending to be human.” The definition of a HU-MAN means God in Man. Yet, it is up to us to tap into that potential. With an infinite number of possibilities within waiting to be expressed without, we are the spiritual embodiment of God connecting the end of everything to the beginning of ALL things. We are a bridge connecting our personal human experiences with the experiences of humanity. The very first time I applied this “newfound” knowledge, I saw the manifestation (of what I desired) happen the very next day. I was astonished. This experience left me with a deep sense of gratitude, excitement and exploration. All smoke and mirrors of preconditioned religious mindsets and distorted beliefs disappeared. Life began to feel more like an enchanted dream come true. Today, despite my physical senses and external stimuli, the Truth within me remains unyielding. Seeing this manifestation come to fruition (effortlessly) without inspired me to be even more committed to feeling and becoming the vibration of my manifestations (from within). This rare experience declared and established a strong sense of stability and confidence within me and I became the First Editor to publish a SIMPLIFIED VERSION of "THOUGHTS ARE THINGS". This became a catalyst to my first affirmations book. Whether you're reading this during or after the global pandemic, you're witnessing the blooming of a new era where reflections born out of long periods of isolation inspired many of us to be the truest version of ourselves. Now, more than ever, I find myself writing more, singing more, playing more music, cooking more, dancing more, laughing more, living more and well..., just being more of more. _____________________________ A Little Backstory About Why I Love What I Do: Since 1989, my journey as a Health Educator has been an invigorating, fun and rewarding one, but a long, exhausting and disconcerting one. This is mainly due to the fact that health trends tend to change significantly. And quite frankly, I just had no interest in keeping up with this guru or that “nuru” (... totally made up that word ... lol...). Navigating the map to achieving optimal spiritual, emotional and physical health was a great challenge. Trying to figure out what spirituality is and its core relationship to a long, healthy and vibrant life felt more like walking on a treadmill juggling a gazillion skills and talents while trying to be everything for everyone (without) with no sense of direction (within). I was lost in the sauce with no cause. I often asked, "How can I be both spiritual and human?" In my ignorance, I considered spirituality and humanity two distinct existences. Especially during COVID, I got to a point where nothing made any sense to me. It was a mindset that threw me for loop into a compartmentalized cellar of self-imposed asylums. However, the desire for answers, was proof that the answers already existed within me. I just wasn't aware of it yet. Today, I realized that spending the first half a century of my life searching for answers helped me to fully understand that when all FOUR elements (of EARTH, WATER, FIRE & AIR) interlock with the Fifth Essence - Spirit - whether that’d be in spiritual health, emotional health or physical health, achieving wholeness on an earthly plane involves a whole lot of patience with, kindness and gentleness towards ourselves and a complete surrender to the ebbs and flows, the ups and downs, the positives and negatives and the push and pulls of life. It is a gracious acceptance of knowing that no matter how spiritually enlightened we become; the laundry still needs to get done. None of us are ever exempt from life’s responsibilities and polarities. It is part of our growth and expansion to rise above life’s circumstances. The sole purpose of life lessons and growth processes is to contract and expand us onward and upward. You can never really appreciate or feel the inexplicable joy, peace and contentment of a blissful moment of ISness until you have risen above the darkness of ignorance. So.., the real reason behind why I love to do what I do? You. To help you see and manifest your own unique and unlimited potential. And the best way I can do this is by being (not just doing). Learning to be our true self in the midst of chaos, while surrendering to the spiritual embodiment of having a practical human experience, is true alchemy. We are the true essence of SPIRIT (GOD) wrapped into one blissful moment of ISness. If there is one thing to take away from everything I have shared, it would be this: It is not wisdom or knowledge that gives meaning to your life; is knowing who you are that brings life into your meaning. Be youself. Be alchemical. Be love. BE Quintessential. I'd like to end with a quote from Dennis William Hauck: "In all the traditions already created, explored and religiously adhered to (both in the East and in the West), there is only one thing that Quintessence-The Fifth Essence can be: SPIRIT. It is the essence where all the FOUR elements of EARTH, WATER, FIRE & AIR are bound to and transformed by." So this quote means that being spiritual also means being the essence of who we really are. And to be spiritual is to be Spirit; to be Spirit is to be I am. And,., I Am... just IS. I look forward to this new journey of awakening and nourishing our souls in Quintessential Freedom.
