I recently took some time to meditate with the Akashic Records, remaining completely open the information I was meant to gather. What I witnessed forever changed how I view even the smallest of my actions--each one creates infinite ripples in the world around us. The Records showed me just how much of an impact we have in our world.Read More

This week, as promised, I’ll talk more about self-love, self-centeredness, and selfishness and how they relate to the ego.

Too often, us spiritual people will neglect to thank ourselves for our hard work. We favor giving other people compassion before we give ourselves this sacred gift.

Gratitude journaling is not only one of the most efficient modalities, but it is also one of the most powerful. Unlike in-depth meditations on visually imagining the light of love pumping through us, this journaling practice works in a subtle way—opening our hearts behind the scenes.Read More
It always seems like people with the most to offer, people who share nothing but genuine love with the world, face the worst hardships.

The Universe believes in everyone who wants to solely share love.Read More
