This book has taught me that if we utilize empathy over compassion, we will experience an empathy-burnout or empathy-fatigue. If we utilize true compassion, we will not become fatigued or empty our vessel; our compassion will overflow.
excerpt from my latest adoptee talk, "My adoptee experience and adoption as trauma" (march 31, 2018) When infants experience trauma (such as being separated from their birthparent immediately after birth) before they know language, they will have a difficult time communicating and expressing what the trauma was or what it felt like for them. Because [...]
It's like you are a child, or a teenager again, experiencing a growth spurt. You can no longer fit into the same clothes that you used to wear, because you're outgrowing them. You need new clothes that fit you properly in your growing, evolving body, and you will have to let go of those old clothes that have become too snug.
At some point in your life, someone told you that your dream was out of reach or that your dreams would never manifest. And you chose to believe that.
The only time when we can take action is in the present moment. The past is made up of present moments that have departed, and the future is made up of present moments that haven't arrived yet. But we are currently in a present moment where you are able to take critical steps towards building your own future.
The extraordinary experience of being alive that exists in your heart begins with self-love, and self-love begins when you truly believe that you deserve it for yourself.
Self-love and self-care are terms that sometimes get tossed around, especially as more and more disenfranchised beings are becoming empowered, but what do they really mean?
We forget to be grateful for the little things. We take for granted so much in life - we even take life itself for granted! The more you practice gratitude, the better you will feel! Being grateful is acknowledging and loving the abundance that you have right now, not getting caught up in the repetitive, [...]
In a previous article about the mysterious something we call "happiness", I talk about how happiness is allowing ourselves to feel joy and gratitude for the present moment. In order for us to awaken our happiness, we must train our minds into being grateful for everything we are experiencing right now. Here's a quick video to [...]
I talk about the self-love practice I use to self-validate my past trauma for myself and also maintain (not make an enemy of!) the ego.
This is my first video that's an introduction on the impact of adoption, specifically how it affects the adoptee.
Seeking and searching for happiness is very similar to the times when you are looking all over the place for your glasses, keys, or phone, only to realize that it's been in your hand or on your head all this time.
Today, in this video, I let you know that it's possible to live the life you dream of and how to become the version of yourself you really are. This is your sign that your time is now. Did you resonate with this message, and wanna buy me a coffee? Use the form below to [...]
Immediately after my awakening, I discovered the secret of the Universe. I found that this secret exists inside all of us within our consciousness, and you can rediscover the secret for yourself.

In my previous post, I talked about my time as an Atheist and my relationship with my spirituality prior to awakening. That relationship has always been strong, especially during all of the doubt, skepticism, and questioning. I have 3 questions for you today. SCENARIO 1: Imagine that you believe Nothing happens during and immediately after death. [...]
Chances are that if you clicked on this, and you're interested in spirituality vs religion, this message is for you! Religion says, "Do." Spirituality says, "Be." As I've started to open up to people in my life about my awakening, the very first thing that has been projected onto me from my atheist friends is, [...]
The present moment is a conscious experience that mutually arrives and departs. How do we become present when it's in constant, evolving movement, arriving and departing, over and over? You are in the present moment when you are aware that it is both arriving and departing in an endless cycle of change. You are in the present [...]
During my dark days, the only relationship that my mind cared about was my relationship with my suffering. I was living in past trauma instead of celebrating and being grateful for my present life. I didn't know this, and it was something that I needed to learn on my own, but looking back, I would [...]
