Before I get into this, I’d like to take a moment to add some clarification around the last video - An Ode to Emma Watson. In this video, I opened up about some personal experiences that I’d had over the last few years that have really affected me. I acknowledge along with so many of you in the comments that it’s probably a little weird, I'm doing my best to understand it myself. But let me explain a bit more since all of us have had at least a few weird experiences in our lives that are hard to explain or put into context.
I know a lot of people thought I was putting Emma on a pedestal, and I think in my own enthusiasm and nervousness I recorded what I did without taking the time I should have to properly explain. I made the statement that Emma Watson was the “Christ Sophia”, did not elaborate on the fact that the Christ energy whether masculine or feminine is a consciousness, rather than it is a specific embodiment in any one person. My...

We've all been hurt before by someone we deeply trust and love. How do you react when you're hurt? Do you feel so angry that you all you think about is how you can take revenge? Or do you find it in your heart to forgive whoever it is that hurt you? As humans, we're very complex beings, and we feel a lot of emotions that we can't even understand ourselves at times. Forgiveness vs. revenge can be a tough choice to make, but it's one that you have to be careful about. If you hurt them back, will that satisfy you? Or will you regret it?
We're all capable of both loving and hurting each other. It's a cruel fact about us humans. While you do have a choice whether to take revenge or to forgive, you know that there's something inside you that says it's best to take the high road and forgive.

All the great things in life do not come easy. They take a lot of time, effort, and dedication. But everyone has a picture of what they want inside their heads. They set a timeline for themselves to achieve it. They challenge themselves to strive harder and to do better.

This Summer Solstice is a special gateway because it combines the Summer Solstice with a Solar Eclipse! In this article, I'm going to be sharing three major points for you to understand the overview of the energies at hand that will be happening at this time in history so that you can have a quick, easy way of utilizing the different energies that will be streaming into the planet.
First and foremost, you need to understand that the ancients understood that the solstices and the equinoxes were very important portals and gateways into the other realms. They saw these astronomical configurations as a time when "the veils would thin" in reality.
Maybe you have heard that phrase before, "veils thinning," but what does that mean?
What that means is that our mind's regular habits and patterns are interrupted during these gateways. This is because, during these potent portals, our planet's usual vibrations...
Frustration can eat you from the inside. It winds you up and makes you feel like you are not in control of the situation. Not only does it suck the energy out of you, but it distracts you and steals your time.
There are several causes of frustration, and each one has its own impact on people. The more invested they are in others, the more likely are they to experience frustration.

Your mind will be foggy, and you won’t be able to think straight. If you are already starting to lose control of your emotions, then it’s about time to get...
