" Knowing we are connected is no longer sufficient. 
We must start acting like we are."

The Spring season always brings the arrival of new growth, new beginnings, expanded light, and infinite potential. As Mother Earth begins yet another journey into new beginnings, so too does society reach the same momentum to move their own developments forward. Consider it your time to officially birth new ideas, grow your dreams, expand your awareness, and shine you light. 

As always, if you require support for healing, clarity or direction, please book a one-on-one session with any of the talented facilitators working out of SOULworks. They are sure to point you in the right direction and create that enlightened, balanced state of being you desire.  There are also many wonderful workshops and opportunities coming up at SOULworks that definitely help with finding your balance.

Excerpts from the book:

Sometimes I feel scared and alone. People think it must be fascinating to see and hear the veiled worlds to the degree I do, to connect with the Divine and follow the promptings of my soul, to be called within the ethers to help people in need, to live so fully in synch with the spirit world that our lives blend and the lines begin to blur. Most times it is pretty amazing. Sometimes, it still shocks me to witness how much our thoughts and intentions not only shape our world, but how we have the capacity to interact with others at such a deep level of awareness. Truthfully, a lot of times it is very overwhelming and too much to put on any one person's shoulders. Perhaps that is why I teach, to share the load.

This book is divided into a few different segments as an opportunity to provide not only inspirational stories, but to teach and help others achieve a higher level of understanding and connection to Spirit. T he format of all chapters follows a three-section layout. Each chapter begins with one of my own unique personal life experiences designed to provide a platform to broaden the awareness and minds of the reader. Each chapter then contains a segment entitled "Evolving Your SOULworks." This section provides insights and thoughtful explanations regarding the lessons I have learned from each of my experiences. In closing, each chapter ends with a "Your Move" portion, encouraging readers to take action on evolving their own SOULworks. In addition to the general layout, the book is informally divided into two segments. This first half of the book is derived from personal experiences and general knowledge I have chosen to share from a time when my world had some degree of normalcy to it.

The second half of the book expresses and conveys some of the more recent events of my life depicting biblical prophecy. I tell these stories not to gain support or understanding. In fact, I am quite scared to speak my truth and in all honesty, fear the backlash it might provoke. However, I am compelled to share them anyway. Despite my own fears and hesitations, I think they deserve to be told. I do believe the Universe is working through me as a conduit and spokesperson to cosmic events that are currently in progress, and that the depth of their significance or insignificance needs to be heard.

As I write down the experiences I have tried to escape from but simply cannot, I hope you hear the words instead of focusing on the person telling the story. I hope you heed the teachings instead of letting your fears engulf the magic behind the encounters. I pray you show compassion not only to me, but also to an entire world shifting through a deep, soulful, and much needed change. Mostly, I hope you feel the truth and apply the teachings to your own awareness and SOULworks. I believe that is truly what they are intended for.
