My thoughts on reincarnation

What do you believe happens after death? No, I really want you to think about this because honestly few people have a solid belief. We generally never even think or talk about death, although it worries every one of us, and is a fear amongst many in life because we don’t really know what happens, and that is a mystery we will solve only when we die.

We don’t like talking about death for some reason… It is such a taboo topic, and even the most religious people among us don’t like talking about it. We end up living our whole lives without ever coming to terms with our inevitable death.

Instead, we come up with theories on what we think will happen. We create stories about heaven and hell. We believe when we die we go to God’s kingdom for some sort of judgment to see if we deem worthy enough to enter into heaven, and if we aren’t, we go to hell.

Another belief among some is that when you die, that’s it, game over. There is nothing waiting on the other side but darkness, but you are still conscious, and so you spend the rest of Eternity this way. Many people are afraid that when they die they will be locked in a dark room forever with nothing but their own irrational thoughts.

I dunno about you here, but neither of those beliefs really had me all that convinced. What’s the point of living a good life, and being a great person, if when I died that was it: game over? Life to me seemed far too marvelous for that to be the case. Sure I liked the idea of heaven, who wouldn’t? But then why was I on Earth now? Surely this couldn’t be the very first time I had lived, but with that specific belief, you get one life and that was it, then you would meet God and be judged on how well you did in this single lifetime.

However, I didn’t think that was right either, after all, I knew way too much for this to be my first and only time alive. I am what some would call an old soul, and this became clear to me at a young age when I was wise beyond my years. I just knew stuff that even the adults didn’t know, and I also knew that there was more to life than what I was being told, I was seeking for answers from a very young age.  I took it upon myself to figure out what I found truth in, and in doing so I formed a pretty solid belief in what I think happens after death.

During my searching I discovered reincarnation. Which is the belief that when you die, your soul cannot be destroyed, and will carry on in the cycle of birth and death over and over again until it has accomplished and learned everything it needs to, and then it will move on to a new world to learn a whole new set of lessons. Your soul is basically evolving, just like humanity is, and it takes many lifetimes in order to complete this cycle.

The first time I heard about reincarnation, it was an AHA moment for me. I just knew that it was the truth, or at least it was true to my own soul. It just made the most sense, and it was the most positive outlook to have on life. This isn’t your one and only life, you come back multiple times, which would explain my constant wondering as to why some people were clearly more advanced than others.

Reincarnation was like a missing piece to the puzzle, and when I discovered it, everything else in my life started coming together. It became my mission to use this life to grow and evolve as much as possible knowing that when I died it wasn’t game over like so many had led me to believe.

Reincarnation is the most widely accepted belief in the world, with most its believers in the East. It is now becoming more accepted in the West, and I have a sneaking suspicion that science will one day prove it as true, after all, reincarnation now has numerous scientific studies on the topic, which suggests that our consciousness does not die with the body but stays for a while even when the body is pronounced dead, before leaving to somewhere else. (Where it goes after that is up for debate and I don’t think our human minds can fully understand this concept at this present time, afterall, life is a mystery.)

There are also children who seem to remember great details about their past life that they would not be able to recall unless it was true. Countless stories spread the internet of people (not only children) that remember accurate details about their previous lives, stating details such as names, addresses, what they did for a living and even how they died. One little boy told his parents he was murdered and he even brought them to his old house, his parents talked to the owners of the house who verified everything the little boy had said.

“Reincarnation is in fact paralleled by science. The first law of thermodynamics tells us energy cannot be created or destroyed.” 

Buddhism believes in reincarnation saying that a soul will come back time and time again until all lessons are learned and once enlightenment is achieved in the physical form, then the soul can finally exit the birth and death cycle and live in heaven (Nirvana).

I would like to share with you now, some of my thoughts about reincarnation. These are all my own personal opinions on the subject, and I have no real proof that any of this is true, but this is just what I have discovered through my own journey, and it might lighten the path for you on your own journey through life. This belief in reincarnation certainly gave me hope.

  1. I truly do believe in reincarnation, and I have for a very long time now. No one would be able to change my mind on this one because it is such a firm belief that I consider it to be the absolute truth as to what happens when we take our final breath.
  2. I believe that when we die, we realize that life was just a play or a dream and that none of it mattered apart from the effect we had on other people. I believe that when you die, you do get a life in review and when you experience this, you also experience how you made everyone else feel that you encountered along your journey of life. This alone would be either very satisfying to someone who led a good life and helped out a lot of people, but it would be opposite to anyone who harmed others and lived a life of injustice. This includes mistreatment of animals and anything that is a conscious form of life for that matter.
  3. I believe that we get to choose our lives, based on the lessons we need to work on. I consider life is about learning/ experiencing and evolving where through time, we learn who and what we are through the countless experiences and lives here on Earth.
  4. However, I don’t believe we always come back to planet Earth. Have you ever looked up at the night sky and felt a sense of homesickness, even though you were already “home”? Well, I have… All my life I have been looking up at the stars wishing to go home, even though I have no idea where home is… I just felt out of place here on Earth, as I think a lot of human’s feel.
  5. With that being said, I don’t think Earth is the only planet we incarnate on, and there are millions and millions of other planets, all with different lessons to learn and experiences to have. On some planets, we are born with a full memory of who we are, (unlike Earth where we forget our origins) and we can live a lot longer on other planets than a human being on Earth would. (Although, human beings are designed to live a hell of a lot longer than the current lifespan, and that is due to the poisoning of our bodies with chemicals in our foods, and other toxins such as alcohol we willingly consume. Some of the great masters of Earth were said to live well past 1000 years old, just to give you an idea of how long human beings were made to last.
  6. I believe that we all decided to come to earth at this current time period. I believe we all came here with a mission, and that mission is for us to remember, however, we forget who we are and what we came here to do because when we incarnate on Earth, we suffer severe amnesia causing us to forget our past lives. (Planet Earth is said to be a very challenging planet to live on for this reason in particular) But our past lives don’t serve us, and it would likely just confuse us more if we were to remember them.
  7. I believe that if we all remembered who we were, the world would be a totally different place full of love, kindness, and joy. As I write this, people are waking up all over the world, and remembering again who they are. This means a great change is coming to Earth, humanity is remembering who they are and what they are capable of, they are also seeing what is wrong with the way the world is run, and these are the people who are going to change the planet.
  8. I believe that within the next 10 years, we will see massive changes to the way things on Earth are currently handled. I believe people are stepping up to the plate daily to change themselves, thus changing the world. We all have tremendous potential and you can do anything we want, but you must first choose yourself. Make your self-growth a priority, and watch how your life unfolds, and how many lives you change in the process.
  9. I believe when all of humanity wakes up to who they truly are, there will be a great shift on this planet. It has already begun, and things are starting to change. Great things are happening right now on planet Earth, and the next years will see tremendous change for our beautiful planet.

So now, put aside your skepticism and try to keep an open mind, but what if reincarnation were in fact real? What if you had hundreds and hundreds of lives here on Earth and countless more lives on other planets, but depending on where you are at in your soul evolution, you may be coming back to earth many, many more times yet.

I want you to imagine for a moment, that you died, and when you died you were now a free-spirit, a soul that is no longer attached to your physical body free of all pain and limitations. You could have anything you desired in the blink of an eye, every thought you had instantly manifested. You could travel the galaxies, and transcend space and time with ease. You could go into the past, and revisit old memories, and you could go into the future and see what’s in store for you.

You always will have free will, and so you can decide at any point that you want to experience life again, because isn’t that what this is about anyways, experiencing all life has to offer? Usually, we cannot wait to return to Earth for another go, its a grand adventure coming here! So you choose/design another life to live and down to earth you go again to be born again as a baby and to live a brand new life as a brand new person. A life that you created for yourself before you came down to earth, whether you remember that or not when you arrive. But, yes you are the creator of your life whether you believe that or not.

Isn’t that a much more compelling theory compared to when you die you will be judged on all your faults and sent to a place for eternity to either suffer in pain and torture or to be pampered in the lap of luxury. I don’t know about you, but neither of those sounds overly fulfilling, especially the first one… Living in luxury would be a nice vacation, but to stay there for eternity wouldn’t seem very enjoyable to me, and I feel I would get bored fast.

Let’s imagine that you are dead again, you just died in an accident and are now looking at your mangled car from above. Do you think you will even consider your house, or the current state of your bank account, or the car you drove to work for all those years?

No. You won’t. You’ll be thinking about your family. Your kids, your parents, your wife or husband. You wont even care about yourself anymore, because you will finally realize that your life is eternal, and the ego doesn’t exist in the afterlife. So you will thank your body for being your vehicle on earth, and release it.

You don’t need your body anymore, now you can go anywhere you want, so imagine you are now flying up towards the heavens, flying as high and as fast as you wish. You are all knowing, and you remember who you are again. You remember all your past lives and relish in the memories. Time is endless.

You get to the end of Earth’s atmosphere, and you stare down at this big blue planet. You hear her crying in agony as she’s being destroyed by none other than humans themselves, and in a flash, you are reminded of all the things you did in your past life to help destroy her. All the mistreatment you unknowingly caused to Mother Earth, you will feel. Everything you choose to ignore when you were alive will be reminded to you, and you will feel all the pain you caused to every living being on earth.

You will know that in a short time, you will have to return to Earth for a new mission and that you will vow to help fix mother earth, and help the children of earth. You see the bigger picture, and you realize that life is not about you, it is about how you treat other living beings, it is about the effect you had on others.

What if this were the truth, and this was really what you experienced when you died? How would you change your actions now? Because this doesn’t have to happen, we still have time. We can change the planet, one effort at a time. It doesn’t matter, because even a small step in the right direction, is better than a step in the wrong direction, or no steps in any direction.

Some actions to improve your own life, and help the earth at the same time!

-Work on discovering yourself each day: Read The Journey to Self-Discovery
-Take an online class or learn a new skill
-Help others genuinely and kindly. The golden rule…


I hope you enjoyed reading about reincarnation, and while I am not sure still if this is the truth because well I haven’t died yet, I have built my entire life around believing that when I die, I will get to reincarnate and enjoy another exciting life with its many lessons and experiences. This belief has removed my fear of dying, which is inevitably something we are all fearful of, and removing that fear alone, removes the fear of almost everything else, which in turn allows you to live a life completely free from worry/ fear.

Suppose reincarnation was in fact completely true, what kind of Earth would you want to return to?

And what are you doing today to improve it and more importantly, what are you doing to improve yourself?

My thoughts on Extra-terrestial’s

“Do you believe in aliens?” He asked.

“Yes, of course, I think you would have to be completely living in a bubble, or just completely ignorant to believe we are the only form of life in the entire universe,” I replied. 

My words seemed to upset him slightly, and I could tell that he held a different belief than I did. Or maybe he just wasn’t sure what he believed, but he seemed rattled by my sturdy belief in the unknown.

The thing is, and what I find most interesting, is that a lot of people when asked the question above, they don’t seem to have a solid belief. They simply do not know what they believe. Which always surprises me, because, for myself,  I want to know everything!!!

Life is such a fascinating mystery to me, and I find myself interested in all the hot topics, which of course includes the idea of aliens, or extraterrestrials, whatever you wish to call them! This part of life has always intrigued me so much starting as a child, I would constantly find myself looking up at the stars and wanting to go home, wherever “home” was… I felt like I didn’t belong here on Earth. That I was from somewhere else. I knew in my heart that there was more to life than what I was told. This was far too magical of a place in my eyes to be just a random occurrence, or whatever science tells us what reality is. I just always knew that there was more…

Now before I get into my thoughts about E.T’s, If you don’t believe in them that’s fine, that’s your belief. But please don’t sit there and arrogantly say that you don’t believe in aliens when you know damn well you haven’t actually done any of your own research on the subject, and you’ve just taken the opinions of others as your own. Please keep an open mind during this, it could open your awareness to something grander than you once thought life was.

I can honestly say that if you don’t believe in them yet, you would pretty quickly if you started doing some research on your own, the evidence is astounding and it’s available now to us, but that’s not why I am writing today… I am here to tell you about my thoughts on them. This is my own personal opinion about the existence of Extra-terrestrials, but don’t take every word I say as truth, this is your own personal journey that you must find your own truth on, don’t simply take someone else’s truth. Use your own inner knowing to tell you your truth.


My Thoughts

Yes, I do believe in aliens. Without a single doubt in my mind, I believe in their existence. I will even go one step further and say that they are here, and have been here on Earth for a very long time. The majority of them are here to help us, they are kind and benevolent beings, but there are certain species that are here to control us and have been succeeding for many years now, which is why we experience so much fear and suffering, poverty, and disease on Planet Earth.

But worry not, for those days are short-lived.

We (as humanity) are starting to wake up to realize what is going on here, and we will not put up with it for much longer. Day by day, we are starting to wake up and realize, “hey, something isn’t right here… ?”

Daily more and more people are having what I call “spiritual awakenings”, and they are remembering who they are, and why they are here. They are asking for guidance through this confusing time, and guess who is there to help them?

Ah yes, the beings we have dubbed as “Aliens”, have been here helping guide humanity for centuries now, we just haven’t been aware enough to realize this. They are also much, much more advanced and civilized than we are, so they know that showing themselves to us is not a good idea, because we as a species haven’t been ready for that sort of revelation.

At least until now…

Like I said earlier, humanity is waking up, and we are beginning to remember who we are. It won’t be long before the first contact is made between the extra-terrestrials and us, and it will be undeniable to the masses. No one will hold non-belief anymore because we will be given undeniable proof.

From there, they will help us advance in ways we can’t even imagine currently. Our technology will skyrocket, free energy for all, free living for all, no more poverty, no more starvation, no more suffering… We will be the magnificent creators we were born to be, not the current way we think of ourselves which is the poor helpless human.

Life will be wonderful and how it was intended for us all along! 

This is what is in store for humanity. We have already chosen a collective agreement to take the path of light. We have walked through the darkness for thousands of years now, and we have finally discovered the light again, and it is incredible!!

People often ask me why I believe in aliens, despite there being sufficient “proof.” 

Well, to that I say there is proof, irrefutable proof can be found on the existence of aliens if you just spend some time doing research… Which I have been doing now for about 5 years, if not longer, because like I said, this is all so very fascinating to me, and I really do want to discover all I can about it.

There is no REAL proof of God either, except for the countless of witness accounts for their having visions of God, or talking with God, but no one has ever really “seen” God, other than the people we claim are “crazy” because there is no definite proof of God’s existence either, and still the majority of people on Earth do believe in God, the creator, or some form of higher power…

And so of course, the same thing can be said for aliens, there is no REAL proof that aliens exist, other than the countless of people who have all claimed to be in contact with, or have seen one for themselves, or even some will say they were abducted. We usually dismiss these people as “bat-shit crazy” when in all actuality, they really are saner than most people around them because they see through the illusions of reality, they are open to the unknown, and trust in the universe. They are “out of their minds” quite literally, and live through the heart with total love and understanding.

Although over the ages, these people that talk about aliens existing have been hushed and bribed with money or death to keep quiet and not share their experience. This has been the biggest coverup in human history, and they have done a pretty darn good job at covering it up and convincing the masses that aliens don’t exist…

This is the biggest coverup in human history! We have been lied to for centuries now… 

UFO sightings have all been kept secret from us for many years now, the media isn’t allowed to talk about it, the military personnel is sworn to secrecy being threatened with death or worse in order to keep them quiet. There is so much going on being the scenes that we don’t know about. The existence of aliens is only one thing that we have been lied to about, but more on that some other time…

The person who claims to have been abducted by aliens is labeled insane, and gets locked away in the mental hospital. Merely talking about aliens have caused an uproar of panic and distress amongst many. Humans are scared of the unknown, this we all must realize so we can remove that fear and learn to embrace the unknown.

It’s a taboo topic to talk about, we can’t seem to grasp the concept that there is so much more unseen than seen. We think seeing is believing, but there must be more to life than that. I honestly think its scarier to think that we are all alone in this big universe, to me that is terrifying. We would be quite simply doomed. But no, that’s not what I believe, I believe we are not alone, and that the universe is teeming with intelligent life, and I believe that many intelligent beings are here now to help us evolve.

We are aliens too! I believe that we came to Earth a very long time ago as explorers or “wayfinders” who navigated the stars to find planet Earth and started a life here for whatever reason. We really are just starting to scratch the surface for where we came from, how humanity all began, what the point of it all is. There are many secrets that will be revealed over the next coming years!

It is truly an amazing time to be alive! There is also about to be a wonderful shift for humanity, which is going to change our lives forever! The mass awakening is now in full swing, and it’s almost complete.

Which is why I love having these sorts of conversation with people, I love to see where they are at on their journey in life, my favorite question to ask people is whether or not they believe in aliens because it is a question I think we have all at some point wondered.

If you aren’t very interested in the mysteries of life, that is fine, but I often just wonder how can all this not be interesting to you!? There are so many cool things that are going on right now that I think everyone needs to be aware of, (which is so much more exciting than what Justin Beiber got up to over the weekend) and one of these things is obviously the existence of Extra-terrestrials and the awakening of humanity. Both of which make fascinating google searches.

For me, this whole topic of life on other planets is exciting beyond imagination!!
It basically tells us that no we aren’t alone like we thought, and there are unlimited possibilities out there to experience. Who knows, I wouldn’t be surprised in my lifetime if I got to ride on a spaceship to another planet and visit a different planet and a whole new species of life.

The universe is absolutely crawling with Life, we are just not aware of it… Yet. 

I really do think there is so much we don’t know yet, but humans have big egos and we like to think that we are the most evolved race in the universe, and we are ignorant to this fact and we think we know everything, which is simply just not the case. We might know maybe 1/100th of all the information and knowledge that is out there, and even I think that is an overestimation, maybe try 1/1000th.

We, after all, are a very young species., We are basically the toddlers of the universe. Everyone, (I mean the other species of the universe) everyone is watching earth right now, we are basically the greatest show in the universe, which is why UFO sightings have increased over recent years. Humanity is evolving, we are growing up sort of thing, from the children of the playground to the magnificent grown up beings we were intended to be!

The Extra-terrestrials are here now observing us, guiding us, and waiting for the day when they make initial contact with us, and it won’t be them going to the US government and hoping to make peace. I am sure it will be much more intelligent than that. They have highly evolved, after all, they aren’t just going to present themselves in a way in which we won’t accept and start shooting missiles at them. Although, we have done this already… Like I said, there’s a lot we don’t know about.

They will make contact in a way that everyone will be witness to it. I assume it will be in the skies, and we won’t be able to blame it on anything else but what it is. It will be undeniable proof to even the most skeptical among us. The day they make contact will change the way we live for the rest of our lives. It will start off as an ordinary day, but end completely different than when we awoke.

They are already sending us messages through the internet. Some of the alien species here to help humanity evolve have messages to share with the game-changers of Earth.

A simple google or YouTube search regarding this subject matter will entail many theories about extra-terrestrial life. This is just my personal theory, but I highly recommend you go and find your own truth, don’t just merely take what I believe as your own truth. We all have in us our own discernment to decide what is true for us individually, and I share my beliefs with you because I have a very strong foundation of truth. I no longer worry what people will think of me, as I know who I am, and what I have come here to do.

It would be easy to see the world as this negative, cruel and terrible place. With all the pain and suffering that takes place here. But I am here to calm your anxieties, for the future will be brighter than it has ever been in the past. We are entering into the golden age of time, which is why the E.T’s are here to help us ascend to the highly evolved beings that we are supposed to be.

When we become highly evolved, which is already happening on a grand scale, we will stop fighting each other, and instead, open our arms to our fellow brothers and sisters in love and understanding. The different religions or races upon Earth will no longer be a dividing factor, we will live in peace and harmony with one and other as we know that we are all one, and together we will create a magnificent new world!

Part 2 will be coming… Stay tuned.

With love and light

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.

Why getting to know yourself is so important in life

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…

2b13160673dc40223a3f23c46985d40d.jpg

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!

How to avoid regrets on your deathbed

How to avoid regrets on your deathbed


There’s been quite a bit of talk lately about the regrets that people come to realize when they are on their death bed. There comes a time, when all that you are able to do is look back and reflect on your life and the choices you made. You spend your final days, weeks or months looking back at what went right, and what went wrong in your life.

For most, they experienced extreme clarity and wisdom upon looking back on their lives and formed regrets on how they lived life. A palliative nurse was counseling the dying during their last few days on earth, and she documented the top regrets she heard from those at the end of their lives.

You can read the full article here, Top five regrets of the dying.

But something I did notice, was that people do not regret the things they did in life, but they regret the things they didn’t do…

“No one on his deathbed ever said, I wish I had spent more time on my business.”
-Paul Tsongas

In this post, I will go through the top 5 regrets experienced by people on their deathbed and hope to give you some tips on how to avoid such regrets when your time comes. These are just the main regrets, and while I am not saying you won’t still feel some regrets, hopefully, this will prevent the biggest ones.


I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself,
not the life others expected of me.

This was the most common regret of all. When people reached the end of their life, they had the time to finally reflect back on the lives thy lived and deeply regret not being true to themselves and what they really wanted to do in life. They wished they hadn’t just done what everyone told them they needed to do and would have rather had the courage to follow their hearts.

Falling into this trap is very common. It’s terribly unfortunate, but alas it is most common for people to do. We always deep down inside knows what our hearts want, but many fail to listen to it and instead does what everyone else thinks is the “best” way to live. Just because everyone else is doing it, doesn’t mean you have to as well, and even though it may have worked well for others, doesn’t guarantee it’ll work for you.

How to avoid:

  • Learning to listen to that voice inside is very important in order to not feeling regrets on your deathbed.
  • Taking a chance on yourself and spending some time getting to know yourself,
    read: Why getting to know yourself is so important in life
  • Once you know who you truly are inside, (hint you are not your name) you will realize exactly what you need to do in life, and the path will unfold for you naturally.
  • Learning to quiet the mind through meditation, or by other peaceful activities such as yoga or going on nature walks. By doing so, you will be able to hear your inner self-speak, and what it truly wants for your life, and it wants whats best for you! Its never too late to start! Even if you just started painting, like you’ve always wanted to do, then do it! You never know what could happen until you try!

I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.

This one was mostly said by men, wishing they had spent more time with their families or more time doing the things they loved instead of working their days away at the office. They wished they hadn’t worked so many hours overtime, missing countless family dinners, birthdays, special events, etc. Women also said this, but not as often as men do to the fact that women were usually at home with the babies during that era. Spending too much time working is, of course, a common regret, which can be avoided with an opened mind. We are after all conditioned to think that we need to work (this much) in order to feel accomplished, or successful in life… This belief we hold is so limiting because by spending all your time at work, you don’t have the time then to do the things in life that make you happy, thus causing regrets at the end….

How to avoid:

  • Don’t work so much. Its easier said than done I know, but realizing that this is a very common regret amongst people must make you prompt the question why…? Why do people regret working so much? Maybe when you get to the end of your life, you realize that all that time you spent working in order to afford a fancy car, or a nice home filled with a bunch of nice stuff was all useless now. It’s all meaningless, you don’t take it with you when you die. You realize that you’ll never get the time back from work, and you can miss so many wonderful experiences in life by having to work a rigid schedule.
  • Find out your true passions in life, and then do them instead of working. Then you will never feel like you worked a day in your life because you felt like you were playing!
  • Realize that you don’t need millions of dollars to be “happy” as I learned while reading this book: Book Review: Playing the matrix Happiness is the most important thing we should strive for in life, above all else.
  • Practice living minimally, that way you do not have to work so damn much to pay for all your stuff because you won’t have much! Cut back on life’s little luxuries, so that you can afford to not spend so many hours of time behind the desk. You will realize that at the end of your day you didn’t even miss your Starbucks drink, or $15 lunch, and you greatly enjoyed being able to get out of work an hour earlier to go for an afternoon walk at the park. You don’t always need to spend money to be happy, after all, its the little things in life.


I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

Many people suppress how they feel inside in order to please others, and not cause any conflict, or because they are scared what someone might think of them. By doing so, they end up settling for mediocracy and following the herd,  never allowing themselves to reach the potential they are truly capable of. Before they know it, illness starts taking over because of all the negativity they’ve kept bottled inside and they begin going downhill from there.

How to avoid:

  • Courage is not something you obtain, its something you have had inside you all along, you just need to remember this, and go find the courageous you.
  • When you begin to learn about yourself, you begin to form truths about who you are, and when you start to build your life on the foundation of your truth, you realize that you have the courage to express your true feelings to others.
  • March to the beat of your own drum, and don’t let others hold you back because they will certainly try…. People don’t like to see others advance and progress through life, which is why you will lose people along the way. They won’t like the new you, and that’s okay because you are living true to yourself, and that’s all that matters.
  • The best thing you can do is help them realize they too are living life all wrong, and show them the way to a more fulfilling life where you can be whoever you want to be.

I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

Everyone misses their friends when they are dying, it’s a very common regret amongst everyone. Many people become so caught up in the day to day tasks and deadlines that they put their old friends on the side burner and never manage to pick the relationship back up. People often realize the true power of friendship only when it is already too late, and they spend their final moments wishing they hadn’t lost them over the years.

How to avoid:

  • No matter how busy your life gets, which if you have been following along, working too much is also a big regret, but no matter how busy it gets always make time for lifelong friends.
  • If they don’t reach out to you, reach out to them first. I am sure they are living their lives waiting for you to call them, and you’re waiting for them to call you. Make the first move and reconnect! You’ll be happy you did, and better yet, you won’t regret this one in your final days.
  • True lifelong friends are hard to come by, so making time for the ones you have in your life will give you a peace of mind, and also aids in loneliness which is a big problem when we reach old age. Even having one true friend will be a benefit.

I wish that I had let myself be happier.

Ah, there it is, happiness. A huge issue for a lot of people because it’s so open-ended. Happiness is a mysterious thing that people strive for all their lives, saying oh once I get such and such, then I’ll be happy. So they wait, and wait, and wait, and finally, they get what they wanted, and they feel happy for a week or two, and then they sink right back down into the hole. Happiness is not something you can buy, it’s not something that someone can give you, its something that you must find on your own, and the wonderful thing about happiness is you can be happy anywhere you want in the world, and in cases which some would call extreme suffering. Happiness is a state of mind, which means it doesn’t rely on outside factors. It’s something you can be at any moment throughout the day, regardless of how much money you have in the bank, or if you are in a loving relationship.

How to avoid:

  • Don’t fall into the trap that so many have fallen into over the years, the comfort zone is a sticky trap that can be very hard to crawl out of. Ask yourself, what would make you happier in your daily life and then work towards that state. (Note, do not use money as a thing that will make you happier, or any material possessions for that matter. Find happiness in things that cannot be taken away from you)
  • Don’t fall into the trap that fear has strategically laid out if you manage to lose your fear of death (which you will once you lead a fulfilling life) you will realize that there is absolutely nothing to fear, other than fear itself.
  • Happiness is a state of mind, it is a choice. You can either choose to be happy or unhappy. There is no crime in being happy, sure some might think you’re strange for being so happy, but honestly who cares? We are all headed to the same place, so why not enjoy the journey now before its too late!? Go and be the happy, positive, full of life person you were born to be!

That’s all folks! I am sure there are more regrets people face on their deathbed, but I just took the top 5 regrets. I hope you found this useful and you will start or continue to strive towards living a great life! When you reach the inevitable deathbed, you won’t be full of regrets, but full of great memories and experiences about how you broke the mold and starting living life on your own terms!

“The best way to deal with death is to live in a
fully conscious, compassionate, loving way.
Don’t wait until you’re on your deathbed to recognize that
this is the only way to live.”

8 steps to living a better life

Why you need to believe in yourself

What does success mean to you?

Success means different things to different people, which can lead to confusion when you are going after what you believe success is because it might be completely different to someone else. At the end of the day though, it is down to you to decide what success means to you. Which is what we will try to figure out in this post…

So quick now! What does success mean to you!??? 

Is success having a lot of money in the bank, or having a big house or a fancy car? Maybe its simply having a happy and healthy family, or maybe success to you just means living life ho, however, hell you want to and not caring what others think…

I personally lean towards the last one there, my definition of living a successful life is to live life on my own accord and do whatever makes me happy in every moment… This means, that I am successful right here and right now because I have chosen to sit down and write this post because it is making me happy to do so. If I am constantly putting a limit on my success, well that could mean I am constantly chasing it never knowing when I finally caught it. So I just tell myself I am already successful because I do whatever the hell I want.

But this isn’t about me, this is about you and figuring out how you define success…

The actual definition of success is:

  • The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.
  • A person or thing that achieves desired aims or attains prosperity is successful.
  • The attainment of popularity or profit.

Success in life cannot be summed up by one term really. It is in relationships, financial, lifestyle, everything really… So sure you may be “SUCCESSFUL” in the financial department and have millions in the bank, but you fail when it comes to relationships. So does that mean you are successful?

Well yes, it sure does, if your definition of success was to have a lot of money in the bank. But most people don’t actually define success like that anymore, it is much broader than that.

If you want to be successful in life, you are going to be going against the current, it is an uphill battle. But it is worth it at the top, that I can guarantee!

Have you ever gone on a really long hike, and after about 10 minutes of walking uphill you want to quit and turn back? I know I have.. multiple times. But I never have quit, I always see it through to the end, and guess what, I feel like a million bucks everytime I do finish what I started. Why do I tell you this? Well because during this climb to success, you are going to want to quit. A voice inside you will be there saying, “let’s just quit, let’s go back, life was easier before we started to take this journey…”

You must ignore that voice and keep going if you ever want to live an extraordinary life.

By having a growth mindset, and constantly trying to become better, you have no option but to start to become goal orientated, which will, in turn, lead you to build a great life for yourself in every single area you seek to improve.

Always be in the process of growing, improving and changing and you will no doubt become successful. No matter how you choose to define success!

If you want to be successful, follow these three simple steps

  1. Know what you’re doing
  2. Love what you’re doing
  3. Believe in what you are doing

Now it is your turn to decide for yourself what success truly means to you. It may change over time, I know mine did, but simply having a general idea of what truly is important to you in life will give you the courage and the strength to go up that mountain and be successful on your own terms!

8 steps to living a better life

All it takes is one moment to change your life

Why getting to know yourself is so important in life

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.
