How thoughts create your reality!

I am going to start this post off by saying I am not a scientific person. I don’t understand mathematical or scientific equations, and while there is a whole scientific explanation for this, I am not going to get into that here. If you are interested you can continue your research after reading this post. But I am going to explain this as simple as I can so that anyone can start using these ideas to create a better life.

Thoughts create things.

Your thoughts create your reality, you are more powerful than you know or realize…
All that we are is a result of our thoughts. We as humanity has been led astray for centuries now from this powerful information, and I feel inspired to write about it.

Its what has been called the law of attraction, and it works, whether you believe in it or not. It’s like the force of gravity, it’s working whether you understand it or not, it never stops working, and it brings you the current life you live, you created your life right now using thoughts, words, and actions. Most often we create unconsciously, but once we start to understand this concept, and start applying it to our lives, there is no telling what you can create!

Have you ever had the experience, maybe as a younger child when our belief in magic, wonder, and awe was still very prevalent when you had a previous thought that had come to reality for you? For me it happened often, I would desire a new toy, and without any idea of how I would ever get it, I somehow managed to bring it into my life.

I had this mindblowing experience too as a child when I really wanted to go to Disneyland, but my mom could never afford such a trip but I believed  I would go anyway, and guess what happened? My Aunt won a trip to Disneyland and took me with her! I remember thinking that something magical (that I didn’t understand) was at work, there was just too much crazy stuff that happened in my childhood that made my belief strong.

Then when I was 16 the movie the secret came out, which is of course what I am talking about here! I remember watching it and for the first time in my life hearing that this was a real thing, I was over the moon with excitement because I knew it would lead me to live a very rich and fulfilling life!

But then why is my life such a mess? I had good thoughts, and I had a good understanding of this law of attraction! Why haven’t I created everything I wanted yet? Wheres my million dollars, and beach home and world travel?

No, I have none of that, yet. Because unfortunately as humans tend to do, I thought I knew everything. But from what I discovered is that it goes much deeper than asking for something and thinking positive about it until it manifests. There are a few more steps than that.

IF you want to say attract 1 million dollars into your life, and you say I really want to have 1 million dollars, and then you carry on doing exactly the same that you’ve always done. It’s unlikely going to bring you that million dollars because you haven’t done anything to show that you believe that the million dollars is on its way. So guess what happens? Nothing… Nothing happens because you failed to believe.

There are three relatively easy steps to this process, understanding them is one thing, but applying them to your life is a whole new ball game. I struggled for years to understand how it worked, and I realized that it was my lack of belief in obtaining what I was asking for that was missing. The universe didn’t forget about me or screw up, it was simply waiting for my belief to align with what I wanted to create. Everything happens in the right timing, which can be a hard process to understand if you are new to this game.

Step 1. Ask

Asking is the easy part. We just have to ask the universe for something with intention. For example, I can say I would like to lose weight, but I am not going to lose weight by eating a bag of chips on the couch. I do have to still put some action there. Now if I say I want to lose weight, and I will eat healthily and go to the gym. NOW the universe has something to work with. You ask for something and then take steps towards obtaining it. If you want to make a million dollars do SOMETHING, anything that will promote you being a millionaire. Maybe you take a finance class so you know how to manage that sum of money when you receive it, or maybe you start looking into ways online to make money. This is the year that is said to produce the highest amount of millionaires in history, it’s not as much of a pie in the sky thing we once thought it to be. We are entering the age of abundance for all!

Step 2. Believe

The second step is believing, which in my honest opinion is the hardest part. We truly must believe that we will receive that million dollars, or that we can indeed lose weight. I struggled with this one for years, not realizing that I didn’t actually believe I could lose weight and I would be chubby forever, so I never actually did lose much weight despite going to the gym daily and eating healthy. It was a very frustrating time for me, until one day a couple months ago, I decided that instead of busting my ass at the gym and eating like a rabbit, I should work on my mindset and my beliefs around losing weight. It turned out to be the missing key to the puzzle, and the weight started to fall off magically without going to the gym or watching what I ate. It was honestly a miracle seeing the pounds disappear day by day!

Step 3: Recieve

This one sounds silly, but honestly, we must be opened to receiving. If you struggle to accept a compliment from someone because you feel unworthy, or unlovable. Then how are you going to expect to receive all the glorious blessings the universe has in store for you? I had always thought I was opened to receiving, but then when I really dove deep into my own self, I realized that there was a lot holding me back from allowing things into my life. Specifically, love, how on earth was I supposed to accept love from someone if I hadn’t even learned to love myself yet? Which of course launched me on a journey of self-love, which has made all the difference in my life. I no longer feel the need to lose weight in order to be loveable, and now that I don’t focus on losing weight, it’s falling off.


The universe is waiting to give you the blessings you desire. It’s a journey I recommend anyone to go on because it’s phenomenal. Believe in the universe and the good things will begin to flow. If you think the universe is out to get you, and everything goes wrong to you, then guess what? Everything will go wrong, and I likely don’t have to convince you that is true… Your own life reflection is proof enough that this is true. There are some things that happen in which we just can’t explain.

Take note though that if it is money you are after, it won’t make you happy. You think it will because we are happy when we have a lot of money, but it’s not a lasting feeling. It comes and goes, and you are left with the same state of mind as you had before. Happiness is a state of mind, and you can be as happy as you allow yourself to be, even right here you can choose to be happy.

Showing gratitude for everything in my life has been a solid happiness increaser over the years. I realize I don’t need anyone or anything to be happy. Sure there are always things that will bring me immense moments of happiness, like going on a trip, or meeting someone new, or get a big sum of money. But they don’t define my happiness.

Our thoughts really do create our realities. I find it almost crazy because where I am now in my life I imagined a few years ago, and here I am exactly where I need to be in order to go onto the next stage of my life.

It does require patience though. Not everything will immediately appear in your life, and nor would you want it too… If you woke up tomorrow with everything you ever wanted, but no idea of how it came about, then it’s not as fulfilling. It’s much more fun to have it slowly unfold like a wonderful masterpiece overtime.

Take your time and use the power of your mind/ thoughts carefully, where do you want to be 1 year from now, what about 5 years from now? Let’s start thinking big picture here and stop living for the weekend. Your life can be a wonderful adventure, or you can regret it. It’s really about how you choose to live in each moment of time that will determine how your life unfolds. All voices have the power to speak creation into existence.

My Spiritual Journey

“In a wide variety of traditions, a Spiritual Journey is seen as a path toward one or more of the following: a higher state of awareness, the perfection of one’s own being, wisdom, or communion with God or with creation.” 


I thought I would write about my spiritual awakening(s) I have had over time… Something I reflect back on frequently but I haven’t really written about it before, probably because I had no idea where to start… But I find writing to be my greatest tool for self-reflection, and I think this is something I need to reflect over!

I believe that my spiritual journey started naturally when I was born, I was constantly being influenced by people around me. I grew up in a Catholic home, went to church and even attended a Catholic school my entire schooling years. So I do have a background in the Catholic religion, I have even completed the first three sacraments.

I just felt like religion seemed weird to me, all the traditions, ceremonies and rituals. But at that time in my life, it was the only thing I knew, and they did still speak a lot of truth, but there was something that was missing in it for me…

When I was seven I had my first big spiritual awakening experience when I witnessed my grandma pass away in front of me. My whole self-changed in an instant. Time stood still, and I was completely aware and in the present moment, nothing else mattered…
I lost my sense of self that tragic evening, it was my first real experience of death, but I had a deep inner knowing that it wasn’t the end, I would see her again one day, and she would always be with me in my heart.

Read about My experience losing someone close

I was seven years old the night my grandma and best friend passed away. It was my first real experience with death, and I understood it very well for my age. I knew she was gone and I would never see her again. I suddenly realize that I was a mortal being and that my life had an eventual ending point. You lose some of your childlike wonders when you first come to terms with death as a child, you realize that your life is limited, and you don’t have all the time in the world to accomplish things. You stop taking things for granted, people especially, when you know they don’t have forever.

It was a very long, cold and snowy night, but I wasn’t alone, I felt I was being comforted by who I have come to know as God, who came to my aid that night and assured me everything would be okay, time heals all wounds and that I would learn a great deal from this experience. I felt his presence and felt calmness and peace.

After a while of crying,  my tears had healed me and I felt a sense of peace. I had quit crying completely and felt strength and courage like I had never felt before, so I went on that night to comfort my family members, and to take care of my own mom who has just lost her’s whose heart was painfully broken. I was a very empathic and compassionate child… All I was thinking that night was, “yes this is really hard right now, but you’ll get through this experience, and you will be stronger because of it.”

I even had the thought that one day this would all make more sense, and I would even write about this experience. But at 7 years old, I definitely wasn’t a writer yet. But now I understand what that meant, it just took many years to figure that out, but all the pieces are falling into place over time…

That night was the first night I realized that I was eternal. Even though death would take our physical bodies, the soul would live on forever. I still felt my grandmothers presence, she was still around, I just couldn’t see her anymore. This understanding at such a young age I carried with me throughout my life, it changed me in profound ways. I no longer feared death. I didn’t want to die yet, but I wasn’t scared of it happening because I knew that something would come next, it wasn’t the “end.” Like so many have to come to believe…

My family was concerned about my well being, wondering if they should send me to therapy for going through such a traumatic experience. I always said I was fine, it was something I knew I needed to go through on my own, my soul had planned this for its own soul growth. But I was fine, and I also knew that death was a part of life and it was all necessary, no matter how terrible and heartbreaking it is. It certainly made me appreciate everyone a lot more knowing that my time with them was limited.

I realized through that experience that change is inevitable, nothing stays the same forever and that it’s through the hard times that we grow the most. I have come to see experience as one of life’s greatest teachers now, and when I do have a bad experience, I see it as an even better learning opportunity for my self to grow from.

Following that night, I began to “wake up” slowly over time to who I was, and what I was doing here on this planet called Earth. I had a profound sense of self while growing up, something I realized that most people around me didn’t… I talked to myself a lot, which sounds crazy, but I always got an answer to all my questions. It’s like children with imaginary friends, the voice inside became my best friend, and because I was alone a great deal growing up, we would talk pretty much all the time.

It was a wise voice, and had all the answers to all the questions I had.

I felt somewhat special, or different than the rest of the people around me. I clearly knew something that few others seemed to realize, and I could tell this simply by observation. It was like having a deep awareness of your self, not the self you think you are, but the deeper self. The observer of life. The unbiased, nonjudgemental part of you that is experiencing the life you are living. The eternal, all-knowing and timeless soul inside each and every one of us. But try understanding that one when you are 10 years old and the internet doesn’t exist yet… I certainly thought I was crazy.

I grew up always watching, and observing, coming up with my own understanding of things, and trying to figure out the nature of life. I was thinking the big questions in life from a young age, who am I? Why am I here? What is the meaning of all this? What does being alive mean?

I knew instinctively that the way most people lived life was entirely wrong, completely backwards if anything. There had to be more to life than what I was being told, and what I could see… This place was far too wonderful of an experience for us to be here to work for 40 years to pay the bills and then hope you have enough money to last you through retirement… It just felt that we were doing it all wrong, like something important was missing from the framework of society.

After growing up way too quickly, I was extremely mature for my age. At 10 years old I remember thinking to myself, I am no longer a child, I am past that stage, I’ve seen too much, I am basically an adult now. But I was okay with that, I wanted to grow up, I wanted the freedom the adults had, I’ve always been a free spirit, and I couldn’t wait until I was old enough to make my own decisions.

Some would call me an old soul, or wise beyond my years, and to be honest, I was, or I am. Still to this day I find myself thinking like an old wise man, not a 26-year-old female millennial. I should be out partying and seeing what Kim Kardashian is up to, but no. Instead, I am meditating, and reading about the origins of humanity, Who we really are, and where we are going, writing about my journey, and traveling as often as I can. I am contemplative and curious, I always want to know more about life, existence and who I am. Which is why I ask these questions to myself so frequently… Its the only thing that has really intrigued me in life, figuring out the meaning of life is fascinating to me.

“Let your mind start a journey thru a strange new world.
Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before.
Let your soul take you where you long to be…
Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar,
and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.” 

~  Erich Fromm.


I always knew that something big would happen in my lifetime. I didn’t know what it was going to be when I was younger, but now I know that its the awakening of humanity that is happening, and what a truly wonderful time to be alive indeed!

Currently, we are all experiencing spiritual awakenings all over the earth, and it can be a confusing time for many because what will happen is age-old beliefs will be destroyed, leaving us feeling confused and lost in a sea of information. We are basically getting upgrades, like the way a computer would, and we are evolving to a higher state of consciousness.

Having a spiritual awakening can be a time of confusion for many, and many have also been told they are crazy for some of the stuff they come to realize after a spiritual awakening. But if you have lived your entire life believing that you are just a helpless human and youre nothing special, insignificant and unworthy of love, joy and peace. And then you have a spiritual awakening and you realize that you are just sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much more than you once thought you were, it can be a pretty overwhelming experience.

But its nothing we cant handle, even at times you want to lock yourself in your room and never come out. Which I experience on a frequent basis…

The awakening has already begun and has been taking place already for many years, but now it is getting stronger and faster. Earth is now being bombarded by light energy, and people all around the world are waking up to what is true.

I used to experience an awakening like once a year, and then it was every month, and now it seems like every week, or even daily sometimes. They come in waves I guess. They can be a little overwhelming, especially if you don’t understand what is happening. Sometimes I will feel like I cant keep up with what I am realizing, and then other times it feels like I haven’t had one in ages, and I actually want one to come.

When I talk about these awakenings I mean, I am experiencing these A-ha moments or sudden realizations about reality. Such an example could be, the realization of who you are, or when you get a tiny glimpse of the big picture. We realize a new truth about ourselves that implies, there is no going back to what you previously thought. Your old beliefs are stripped down and you fight to stay afloat. It’s like your entire world falls apart in a matter of seconds so that you can start building on what new information you have discovered, and the new information you will start to understand will blow your old beliefs about reality OUT OF THE PARK! The truth is a phenomenal discovery about who it is we truly are, we are magnificent beings with limitless potential who have been lied to for thousands of years about our origins.

We won’t understand a lot of it when it is happening, but somehow through time, it sorts itself out and all make sense one day. We just have a very very limited perspective as to whats going on here, imagine seeing reality through a tiny pinhole in a piece of cardboard. That is basically how we as humans experience it… So it’s very limited, there’s a lot going on that we don’t understand, see, or experience.

Einstein said it perfectly when he said:
“There is more to heaven and Earth Horatio than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”


When I was 7 and had that spiritual awakening, I didn’t in that moment know that’s what it was, I had no idea what was happening!! I actually thought I was going crazy. But whatever it was, it had shaken me to the core of my being. Nothing could ever change that experience for me, it was mine to learn and grow from. I have gone back in my mind to that night many, many times. I’ve written about it many, many times. And I’ve never stopped learning something new from it.

That night when I witnessed my grandma die, I realized I was an eternal being, and death just meant I move on to something else, I would never “cease to exist completely” and that gave a spark to the fire in me that wanted to grow as wild as it could.

I became a free spirit, who knew I was immortal. This current life was just one out of thousands I would get to experience. I knew I lived before this life also, even though I couldn’t remember it, and although I didn’t learn about reincarnation until I was much older, I believed in it fully.

If life was, in fact, eternal, that meant that I wanted to learn as much as I could about life. I never interested myself in the subjects learned at school because I never cared much for them, I cared mostly for just following my heart and learning about things that were of interest to me in each present moment. Some days I will spend the entire day looking into the existence of aliens for example because that is a subject I find fascinating! Who are we to say that we are the only intelligent life in the entire universe made up of billions, and billions of other galaxies?

I never enjoyed being forced to learn a specific subject. Plus from a young age on I knew there was something wrong with the school system, and I had a bigger dream than what we were told, aka, go to school, get a degree, get a job, find a partner, get married, by a house, have a baby… You get the point. But I had a much bigger dream than the typical “American Dream” so  I chose not to take the post-secondary route and instead took the real-life experience as my path.

You know how in the game of life you can choose to either go to university and start out life 40k in debt? Or you can choose to go the other way and instead start working and making money right away… Well I played that game when I was a kid, and I never choose school back then either, I always, and I mean always went straight to work. Which I actually reflected on that as to why I was never going to school, even in a hypothetical game, and so I wanted to know why I was so against going to school…

But I just saw right through the illusion of it…

 “Yeah let’s start all our young people off thousands of dollars in debt at the very start of their life so that they have to work a job their entire lives and will never discover the creative spirit inside of them because they won’t have any free time to discover who they truly are. Oh and also, lets encourage drinking so they literally destroy their most valuable asset, being their minds while they are at it because we will make them live for the weekends and go out and spend all their hard earned money on alcohol or more material stuff just to fill the void with… But first they will spend the first 18 years in the education system that is designed to keep them under control, so we don’t have anyone disobeying us.”

After all, isnt that what school does? Train our children to obey the system, and lose their most powerful ability, their imagination… But don’t worry, that’s going to be changing soon too, there are great people out there already fighting for a different education system because our current one is just not working…

And so anyway, of course when I finished high school in real life, I went right to work, ready to make a life for myself. I was excited and hopeful, ready to make some money, buy some stuff, travel the world, and do all these awesome things. Create a stellar reality for myself.

But then, of course, real life had to get in the way of my plans, when the force of nature took my mom from my life when I was 20 years old.

It was a very dark period of time for me. I won’t sugar coat it, I was angry, and I couldn’t see how this truly loving God would do such a thing to me when I had already experienced so much tragedy in my life? I knew deep down that everything does happen for a reason, but that light in me was growing fainter by the day.

I went spiraling out of control, and admittedly, I turned my back on God in an angry attempt to take life into my own hands, since he clearly didn’t care for me anyway… Some loving God I thought, taking my mother from me, what had I done to deserve this?

My mom had been my best friend growing up, my biggest fear as a child was losing my mother, something that caused me extreme anxiety… And despite my best efforts at 12 years old when I tried to persuade her to quit smoking and start living a healthier lifestyle, or else she wouldn’t see my wedding day.

My efforts proved futile.

She never did quit smoking, and her life was ended at the age of 56 from Heart disease, which doesn’t surprise me one bit when I look at the way she lived. But at the time when she died, I just didn’t see a point to living anymore, despite my understanding of the law of attraction, my life was still falling apart and crumbling beneath me. I was in a pretty deep and dark pit, and it wasn’t very nice.

I call these days, my dark days. I didn’t do really anything other than sleep, eat, and play video games. I worked maybe 1-2 days (12 hours total) a week earning me just enough money to pay my bills, and buy food. I gained about 30 pounds during this period of time, which I have now lost completely, and am back to a normal weight, but it certainly wasn’t easy.

I hated myself so much during these times. When I looked in the mirror I saw an enemy looking back at me, not my best friend. It was a horrendous time period, but one that I had to go through no doubt. It changed me, and helped me grow into the person I am today, but of course, I couldn’t see this at the time. I had no hope for the future, I was extremely depressed, I didnt see a point in continuing.

Read about: My experience dealing with depression

There was a night, it was sometime in December 2012, Ironically enough… When I had this experience where I thought about killing myself, and I was trying to come up with the easiest and least painful way to end it all. What was the point anyways? Life wasn’t this magical thing I had thought as a child, life was depressing, painful, and full of fear and suffering, why would I want to continue living if I was just going to die? The darkness had taken over so much, there was no more light so that I had forgotten completely who I was, and it had me convinced that I was worthless.

As these thoughts raced through my head, and I decided that taking a bunch of pills and going to sleep was the best way to end my life, I was greeted by the voice I had turned my back on… God had come to the rescue! But I have to tell you that at the time, I didn’t know it was God, I came to that realization 4 years later, but for storytelling purposes… Let me continue.

As I sat there weeping on the floor of my living room, tears streaming down my face, it came to me as a moment of pure awareness that I will never forget because it changed my life completely…

He said, “Do you really want your mom’s life to be for nothing? Or do you want to rise up from this, and be the person you were meant to become?”

I didn’t know what to respond, like sure I always knew I was here for some bigger purpose, but I was 22 now, and I truly thought that my life was over, so what was I supposed to do? I also really couldn’t stand the person I had become, let alone believe in myself to make some impact on the world that I had also grown to hate. When I looked at the mess the world was in, I hated what I saw. So much hatred, greed, and fear taunted my thoughts. I didn’t see the love at all anymore because the darkness had taken over my life so well. I really didn’t want to live in such an awful world…

But then at the same time, I thought about my mom, and all the sacrifices she had made raising me as a single mother, raising me in such a phenomenal way that people would often comment on the great job she did raising me. She did so much for me, working her ass off to put food on the table, she sacrificed so damn much to raise me, and I certainly couldn’t just give up. No that was not happening, but how was I supposed to move on from this? I was broken and I couldn’t see a way to be put back together…

I was full of fear and doubt, terrified for what the future would bring… 

Before I could answer the question, in my mind’s eye I was directly shown two visions, the first one was a version of me if I stayed on the path I was on… I was about 40 years old, I was a fat, obese even, depressed crazy cat lady, living all alone filled with fear, sadness, and full of regrets for not living the life that I knew was possible. That was if I continued on the path I was currently on without God and his guidance by my side.

The dark path. What a bummer… I thought.

Then the second vision followed immediately after, and it was me at 30 years old, or maybe I was 40 but I certainly didn’t look it. I was happy and full of light, love, and positivity. I had many friends all over the world, I was an avid world traveler, bookworm, and seeker of truth. I was also in true love with someone, and genuinely happy. My life looked absolutely magical!

This was the life I would one day have if I choose to walk with God again, and allow him back into my life.

That night I made the decision that I would choose the second vision, no matter what it meant, I would start working to create a better self, and a better life. The two visions are what inspired me. I knew I couldn’t continue living the way I had been out of fear of becoming that depressing version of myself. I knew I needed to make a change, and I believed in myself enough to slowly start walking down the path.

“To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping”

~  Chinese Proverbs 

I did not have these realizations right away, I didn’t know what was happening, but that night I subconsciously choose to walk with God, but it wasn’t like we were instantly best buddies again. We slowly, and I mean very slowly started a relationship together.
I needed to learn to trust again because I had been so hurt in the past already. There was a lot of work I needed to do during that time, and it was like I was standing at the base of the mountain looking up wondering how on Earth I will climb that. I could envision myself at the top thanks to our wonderful mind, but I had no damn clue how I would get up there.

What I didn’t realize at the time though, was that I didn’t need to know how I would get up the mountain, I just needed to take the first step, and God would lead me up it. We don’t need to know how we are going to do something, we just need to trust that it will all unfold as it needs to.

I was a proud atheist at the time. Proud of not believing in anything. I had lost all faith in God, universe, source, energy, whatever you want to call it. So I just followed what science was saying which was we were a rare occurrence on this rock ball floating through space, and there was no grand meaning behind it all. There was no purpose or meaning to life. Little did I know that God was there that whole time, though he wasn’t obvious about it, he gave me the space and time I needed, as his plan slowly revealed itself to me.


I will fast forward three years because nothing huge happened in regards to my spiritual journey, I was focused on personal development but not the spiritual side of things yet…

So in the year 2015, I had finally started to get my life on track, things were looking good again, I was at a healthy weight after spending the last few years busting my ass at the gym, I was starting to travel finally after it being my lifelong dream,  I had just got back from living in Vancouver during summer 2015. I was extremely obsessed with personal development during this time period, which is when I found the Amway business. (I still need to write about this experience too I just realized!)

That was another way in which God worked his magic through me because I specifically remember that when I joined the Amway business I said: “oh yeah this is good and all, but I am not having any FAITH whatsoever.” I was very stubborn and proud to not be like all those seemingly “crazy” religious people. Oh, boy was I ever naive, we all do think we are right though.

This was only back in January 2016 that I said that! But then I started reading books again, I had always loved reading, but I had seemed to forget about it over the years. So over the period of about 6 months, through the powerful force of reading, I started to allow the idea of God and faith back into my life because I was seeing him from a different perspective now.

He was extremely patient with me and I slowly began to open myself up to him. Over 4 years after the night that I had those two visions I finally consciously decided that I wanted God back in my life. Oh, how little did I know at the time that he had been working his magic out already for many years! His plan is so much grander than I could ever imagine, and that’s what I have realized when I start to connect everything in my past together.

I was no longer seeing him as this outside being that was playing with the strings my life, but I started to see him as inside myself co-creating my life WITH me, whether I knew this or not. Our thoughts create our realities. God was my intuition, that voice inside that I talked to a lot when I was younger whom I considered my best friend, and still do but, I didn’t know that THAT voice was God. This I realized a couple years ago, and it blew my mind when I did! It was like ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh I GET IT NOW.

From that moment on, I suddenly got it. I was an essence of God, I was God. I am God. I am the creator of my reality, I am unlimited potential, I can be, do or have anything I want. It was the biggest awakening I think I have ever had. The day I realized that we are all God, we are all here to remember, experience and enjoy the wonders of life and that is why God created us. We are all sons and daughters of God, and when Jesus said, “What I can do you can do too,” he truly meant it, he knew who we actually were even though we don’t.

But from that moment of pure clarity, everything changed for me. I became OBSESSED with spirituality, I went from being proud to not have any beliefs or faith. Arrogantly stating I was an atheist, to suddenly and seemingly overnight, believing with full conviction in God, as well as believing in myself.

I remember when I first started to tell my friends, and they thought I was joking at first, but when I stood true ground, they realized I was far from joking. I have been very strong willed since I was a young child, my aunt told me I had a very strong mind even at 2 years old. I hold conviction in what I believe in, and no one can tell me otherwise, I am not someone you want to get into an argument with, especially if its something I feel strongly about, I am pretty strong-willed when it comes to my faith.

I read everything I could find on the subject, and still I am completely mesmerized by this whole new world I have discovered inside myself, the unseen and spiritual side of things. It seems that the more I feel I learn, the more I realize how much there is that I don’t know yet.

Read about: The Journey to Self-Discovery

The deeper I fall into my own self, the deeper and deeper it goes. I don’t think there will ever be a time when I can honestly say, “yes I know and understand everything that there is to know” That is just a completely false statement and anyone who claims they know everything are fooling themselves.

I am slowly falling through the veils of reality, and it has been a wild ride. There are illusions everywhere we turn on planet earth, and I don’t doubt that in time all these illusions will disappear leaving us with how reality was intended to be. God has a magnificent plan and he is here now. Daily more and more people are opening up to the possibility of something more, there are no coincidences, everything happens all for a reason.

My suspicions as a child were accurate when I thought that there was something severely wrong with the world, but we are now waking up to this on a global scale, and that will cause us to dramatically change. It is already underway on a global measure, countless of people every day are having these spiritual experiences just like I have. I believe all of humanity will eventually wake up in the same way many others have, and we simply won’t choose to live in fear anymore. The light always overcomes the darkness, and it is always darkest right before the dawn.

Peace on earth is coming in the near future. We will live to see a brighter day! Faith in humanity will be fully restored, and we will once again be who we were created to be, full of unlimited creative power!

Why you need to believe in yourself

 

 

Book Review: Playing the matrix

I have been a long-time believer in the law of attraction, also known from the well-known movie & book, The Secret, which explains that our thoughts create things and that we are powerful creators of our own realities.

When I was 16 years old I watched the new movie at the time “The Secret”, and I remember watching it and my intuition was jumping with joy because it knew the law of attraction had enormous truth to it, and it was a sudden realization that I am the creator of my reality, and ever since that day, I have been completely hooked on the idea.

Since day 1, I have fully and undoubtedly believed in the idea that Thoughts become things, and we are the creators of our own realities. I’ve read many books, watched many movies & documentaries on the subject, and I experienced marvelous things happen in my life using the principles, I have tried to learned as much as I possibly could on the subject.

However, like most people who have discovered this great secret in life, it doesn’t always work out the way we wanted it too, which unfortunately causes a lot of people to stop believing in their wonderful powers. We ask the universe for something, we believe it is coming, and then it fails to show up in the time frame we gave it. What gives?

Or maybe we ask the universe for something, someone in particular, and it never happens, or maybe it does happen and it didn’t turn out as you expected it too. So whats going on, why isn’t this working?? The experts make it seem so easy!

Well, I didn’t know for a long time why I wasn’t manifesting everything I was asking for with ease. I actually thought that it didn’t work at times because I would ask for a certain person, and it never panned out the way I had intended. So what was up? Why wasn’t I creating like the flawless creator I considered myself to be… I figured by now, my life would have taken off, but it hadn’t yet, or was I still in liftoff?

I remember thinking a while back, that if I had got everything I wanted in life all at once tomorrow morning, would that be as fun as say, strategically plotting the dreams of your life up along perfect moments on this journey of life?

And the answer turned out to be,  no, of course not, getting everything tomorrow morning wouldn’t be nearly as fun, and so suddenly I realized that everything I had asked for in the past was for sure on its way, at the perfect time. Until then I can continue to learn and grow as much as I can daily.

So I have been doing a lot of new things lately, I started doing yoga and meditating consistently, and I have also been reading a lot more than usual. My realizations are becoming very great now, and I wanted to share this one with you all that I discovered about the law of attraction while reading this book!


Playing the Matrix-

bittopper_6914226ee09a1b18d733a21983c698e1-playing-the-matrix-a-program-for-living-deliberately-and.jpg

I have been obsessed with reading lately, and so I discovered a brand new (Oct 31, 2017) book called “Playing the Matrix” and oh boy, it was like finding the missing piece to the law of attraction puzzle I have been trying to put together.

It’s so unbelievably simple! Like its almost magic how easy this is! And we have it all wrong!

Below is the manifesting matrix that the writer goes into great detail on in the book, which I would recommend anyone who knows about and/or understands the law of attraction to take a look at this book because it honestly makes everything a lot clearer, and simpler!

img_wtiv_matrix_lg

Now I am not going to tell you everything about the book because then you don’t need to read it, but I will share with you my personal aha moment!

If you look at the bottom part of the chart, the 6 columns, you will see 3 green columns, 1 blue, 1 yellow and 1 red column.

What the author suggests is that instead of trying to manifest/create our lives using the right side of the chart, for example, I want this specific person to be in a relationship with, Or I want to be hired at a specific company doing only this job. Even though we can still ask for these things and receive them, it really is a hit or miss chance. He instead suggests that if we started first on the left side, with none other than happiness itself, everything else will naturally flow to you out of your happy state.

I understood this, and it was like “ohhhhh that makes sense, this is why I haven’t had all my dreams come true yet, its because I have been working on the right side!! I must first become happy, and then all the rest will follow!” 

And then I realized that I have been doing that already, I was already happy. Ask anyone I know, they would say I was a happy person. It dawned on me that naturally at some point in my journey I had unconsciously realized this truth, that I should be seeking happiness above all else, Money, love, travel, new house, etc. I had already become happy and its true, the rest follows. Slowly day by day, my life becomes better, and each day the fantastic five, My Livelihood, Wealth and abundance, health, relationships, appearance becomes better.

The thing about happiness too is it is a state of mind. You don’t need millions of dollars in your bank account to be happy. Heck, I have had some of the happiest days in my life when I was either unemployed or broke for most of this year, but I was happy because I was finally able to pursue lifelong goals & dreams of mine.

So anyone can become happy, just by changing their perspective on the way in which they see things. Albert Einstein himself said it perfectly when he said: “the most important decision we make in life is whether we live in a friendly or hostile universe.”

In order for our lives to take off, we must choose to be happy and see the universe as a friendly universe, who wants to bring us everything we ask for. I know that happiness isn’t always something easy to reach, but it is possible for every single human being on this planet to do, rich or poor, it doesn’t matter, everyone has the right to be happy, no matter what their situation is.

I know you might be thinking “well being happy isn’t easy, my life isn’t perfect, things always go wrong” and I get that, I truly do. I have had some pretty hard times in the past, but I learned to see them as experiences to learn and grow from, rather than to be defeated by. The day that I decided to strive for happiness over all else was one of the single greatest day’s of my life, although I wasn’t immediately happy right after that, and my happiness would come and go all the time at the beginning. I’d only feel happy if I was doing something exciting which wasn’t very often, otherwise, I’d feel sad.

Now after working on it for a good period of time, and discovering through meditation and cultivating a strong and peaceful mind, I can honestly say that I am happy 99% of the time. There are still things that spring up that make me cry, or feel anger, but it is usually for a very short period of time in which I experience these negative emotions before I become happy again.

Through this process, I have realized that all I ever wanted was happiness. I didn’t want a relationship with someone if I wasn’t happy, I didn’t want millions of dollars in my bank if I wasn’t happy, and I certainly didn’t want my dream life if I wasn’t happy. I realized that being happy was the utmost important thing to strive for in life, and fortunately for every human being on earth, all it takes is a little bit of dedication and discipline which everyone has, in order to reach that state of happiness that we are all striving towards.

We have been taught countless times, through hundreds of books, videos, and seminars, that we must strive for the perfect career, or reach financial abundance, or get in a quality relationship, and we strive for these things, and sometimes they work out for us, and other times they don’t, leaving us to say “oh this secret doesn’t work, what a load of rubbish.”

All the while, what we should have been striving for was to be happy, and the rest would take care of itself.


Below I have gone ahead and written out some of my own desires in life, along with some details, just to give you an idea of what I mean. Details are fine as long as you don’t attach yourself to them. The universe loves to bring you the best of the best, but when you start attaching to specific details, such as life partner must be blue-eyed and dark-haired, that removes millions if not billions of potential candidates from the supply. You don’t need to worry about how these things will come to you, all you need to do is believe that they will, and above all, be happy and grateful, even before you have the life of your dreams.

8 steps to living a better life

“To live is the rarest thing in the world,
most people exist and that is all”

-Oscar Wilde


In reality, we can all be extraordinary. Every single one of us has the potential to live an extraordinary life. The key here is to really understand that being extraordinary is nothing more than making the choice to do so. It all comes down to you and realizing that you are much more than you think you are, and you are capable of so much more than you give yourself credit for.

“Overcome the notion that you must be regular.
It robs you of the chance to be extraordinary” 

It is really not difficult to live an extraordinary life, most of us sit around and look at all the successful people in life with envy and we desire the same thing for ourselves, but when it comes to actually figuring out how to do it we tend to throw in the towel before we even begin, tossing our dreams in life down the drain at the same time.

The answer to this question is unbelievably simple, it starts with you taking one small step at a time all the while believing in yourself until you reach your goals in life.

I have already started on this journey myself, and I have been at it for a little under two years, and I have to say that the journey has been amazing. I have no idea when I will reach my dream life, and that doesn’t even bother me because I know I will when the time is right. During my journey though, I have learned some things (I am always learning and growing) and I wish to share with you what I have found to help.

In this quote, Lao Tzu is trying to express that great things start from humble beginnings…

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” 

quote-journey-of-a-thousand-miles-the-journey-of-a-thousand-miles-begins-with-a-single-step.jpg


These are some of the steps I have used myself, and I recommend you to start using yourself. They are meant to get you outside of your comfort zones, so that you can be all that you were meant to be.  Here they are:

Here they are:

1. Dreaming- First and foremost you must find out what your dream life even is, because how can you ever achieve something if you don’t know what you are aiming for.  Your dream also has to be big enough that it scares you. The reason you want to dream big is that when you do reach your dream life and it is a small dream of getting a new car or something, you’ll be kicking yourself for not dreaming bigger. Trust me on this, I’ve seen it happen to a few people now. Whatever it is you are dreaming about is the life that was purely destined for you, don’t ever give up on your dreams.

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”
-C.S Lewis

 


2. Learning- All successful people spend years learning how to perfect their craft and develop a mindset destined for success. You must start investing your time and money into learning and growing yourself. If you haven’t read a book in several years, now is the time to start. Invest some of your money on yourself and take a course or a class to learn a new skill. Take up that hobby you have wanted to start doing for years now. If you are serious about living an extraordinary life it won’t just knock at your door one day, you do have to work towards it. It won’t always be easy, but the result will be very worth it.

“The capacity to learn is a gift; 
The ability to learn is a skill;
The willingness to learn is a choice” 
-Brian Herbert

 


3. Take action- Sitting on the couch all night daydreaming won’t make your dreams become a reality. Achieving success in life means playing full out. Turn off the Netflix and get off facebook and open up a book. Even doing just 10% more than everyone else will propel you out in front of the pack. Who you are is not limited to what other people are doing, you can choose to do more, and be more.

“The future depends on what you do today”
Gandhi

 


4. Stretch your comfort Zone- Every single day you should do at least one thing that makes you uncomfortable… I know this is hard for most, but it will change you in ways you can’t even imagine. You are entering a new world, and it may scare you at first, but don’t let that fear prevent you from attaining the dream life that you deserve and desire.

Get out of your comfort zone as much as you can, and watch the magic unfold right before your eyes, you will honestly be mad you didn’t do it sooner.

comfort-zone1.jpg


5. Make sacrifices- Figure out the price that you are willing to pay to achieve your dream life, and know that it may take a while for it to come to you. It is not going to happen in a single day or week, it could very well take years to achieve. The rewards will be worth it, but before you get to the prize you have to go through the “desert.”
Sacrifices of time, money, relationships, comfort levels, character traits, and even material possessions might be needed in order to live the life you have dreamt of.

What is that worth to you? What are you willing to sacrifice today in order to live your dream life tomorrow?

“sacrifice means spending less time on entertainment,
and more time on improving your life and family. ” 

 


6. Take opportunities– Opportunities show up every single day, but more often than not we are not prepared to see them, let alone seize them with reckless abandon. When you start to see new opportunities as a great learning experience you will start to see life differently. Even something like your car breaking down on the side of the road on the way to work may very well be an opportunity to meet someone new or learn how to change a tire. You never know when a life-changing opportunity will present itself, so be prepared to see all of them like they will, and watch your life unfold.

“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘What’s in it for me?’ “
-Brian Tracy

 


7. Interacting with others- Learning people skills is probably, in my opinion, one of the best ways you can spend your time. Reading books like “how to win friends and influence people” gave me a new found sense of confidence when approaching and talking to people. You really cannot have success in life without helping and sharing with others along the way. Spend time learning how to effectively communicate with others, do it in front of the mirror if you have to. The pay off will be worth it. Focus on building authentic relationships and what I can do to help you, rather than how you can help me. Begin to treat people with genuine kindness and appreciation and see how your life will unfold, people will want to help you when you are in need. Learning people skills has been by far the best skill I have learned to date.

“You can make more friends in two months by becoming really interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you. Which is just another way of saying that the way to make a friend is to be one.”
-Dale Carnegie

 


8. Living with passion– You’ll start spending your days excited about life and your future. You will become full of love, enthusiasm, and gratitude. You begin to be the light that helps others find the way to their own dreams. You are no longer a Debby downer, but instead are full of positivity and happiness, and you become a magnet attracting similar people, events, and opportunities to you. This is the point where your life starts to “take off” and you are heading full speed ahead towards the life of your dreams. But remember, it’s not about the destination but the journey, so don’t forget to enjoy the entire ride!

Life update: The universe is so incredible!

“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it” 
-Paulo Coelho

 

So my life is seriously crazy right now… I am finding it hard to write because I honestly don’t even know what to say right now. That’s how amazed I am by what’s been happening in my life…

I will give you some background information before I tell you what is going on…

So about 2 months ago now, I quit my job because enough was enough, I was bored there and just pissed off by the way I was being treated… So one day when I was extremely sick at work, I was getting yelled at for leaving 1 single jam caddy on the table, and I just decided today was the day to quit. This rather hasty decision, (which I don’t regret at all btw)  led me to two months of unemployment where I sat around all day living off peanut butter and honey wraps because I couldn’t afford much else.

I literally became broker than I had been since I first started working 11 years ago. What the hell was I going to do!! I easily could have sunk down into a depression-like state, but I also trust the universe in what it is doing and knew that everything would turn out for me in the end. At this point, I just didn’t know why all this bad stuff was happening to me, it just was.

So anyways, during this month of unemployment, I finally decided to start this blog, so that’s what I started spending my time on. I started this blog at the start of April 2017 and I would sit and write for hours every night. I literally have 35 drafts going that I promise I will finish and post one day.

Starting a blog has always been in the back of my mind, but I just never could get over myself and actually sit down and write about myself. I used to care far too much what people thought about me, and the thought of writing about my stories, terrified me, so I never did it. But finally I did it, and I haven’t regretted doing so yet, so that’s great! It has actually helped me a lot with my own understanding of my life and how everything is connected and the beauty of it all.

But anyways, so one day I created My Bucket List which was something I always wanted, and I had created several lists in my life all in various journals, but this time I posted it on the internet for everyone to see, which would, in turn, hold me accountable to actually follow through on some of these goals I put down for myself. (It seems to be working so far btw)

My main focus in life is to travel, which is all I really want to do, and I get very restless whenever I am stuck in Calgary for too long. I was actually getting incredibly bummed out because the thought of me spending another summer here working my ass off to try to save as much money as I could so hopefully I could go travel in the fall was actually making me sad. I’ve been stuck now in Calgary since I moved back from Vancouver which you can read that entire story. But I hadn’t been able to travel much for about 1.5 years because, well I am still embarrassed to admit it, but I got roped into the Amway business for an entire year, which I will share that story one day because its a good one 🙂

But I didn’t want to wait any longer, I wanted to go now!!!

But with $33.00 in my bank account, and no stable income source or job, that seemed literally impossible for me to get going anytime soon…

I was growing very restless, as I do whenever I want to travel. But I decided to challenge the universe anyways, so I said:

“Universe, get me out of Calgary as soon as possible.”

And then I just let it go. Trusting fully that it would get me out into the world as quick as it could, and not a minute too soon.

A few days later, I was on Indeed sending out my resumes to many employers, I don’t even know who I even applied to, I just applied everywhere, hoping I would get someone to hire me.

I didn’t get a single call back btw, so that sucked…

However, I guess in my applying randomly to everyone, I applied to this job recruitment program, and they actually contacted me 2 days later…

It was literally exactly what I wanted, I couldn’t believe it!

It is this incredible program called Mobilize Jobs, that basically recruits young Canadians, and sends them to resort towns across Canada to work in the hospitality industry for 6 months seasonal work. You get free housing. And full-time hours. And an incredible adventure.

I was sitting there, floored by this. I would get to travel somewhere new and exciting in Canada, work for the summer without paying rent so I would be able to save up money for the fall which is when I want to go travel the rest of the world. But I realized why the hell don’t I go see some of Canada before I take off to see other countries.

So currently I am in the application/ interview process. There are a few things I need to do before I head out to an unknown location in Canada. I won’t find out where I am going for a couple weeks yet, but I basically just go wherever they send me, but all the locations are resort towns and beautiful.

If I for some reason don’t get into this program, which I can’t count my chickens until they hatch, but I will still be leaving to a resort town in the Canadian Rockies for the summer. No matter what, I will go somewhere this summer, and it will be amazing regardless!

I will be leaving in about 20 days time, which is like oh 200 days sooner than I had originally anticipated. So that is a little bit terrifying, but I know that everything will be okay, and it is going to be a crazy story to tell! I plan to leave Calgary, and go travel for as long as I can, which could be years actually!

Don’t worry family, I will still be home for Christmas, well, I will do my absolute best to come home for December each year anyways 🙂 

It’s my dream to travel the world. and see this incredible planet and all its beauty. I told the universe what I wanted, and now it is coming to me at full speed. Life is so amazing!
