You were Meant to Be You!!

 

 

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite.” —  

     –  William Blake

‘Find out who you are and be that person.  That’s what your Soul was put on this earth to be.  Find that truth, love that truth and everything else will come.”

My Truth

 

I have been a health advocate for years – was into health products in my 20’s and eating healthy yet I also swung to the other end and had an eating disorder and of course in my 20’s worked int eh service industry so partied too much……..from one extreme to the other!!

I was doing green drinks more than 15 years ago, became a Raw Food Chef 10 years ago, into Superfoods for at least 7 years and I don’t say that to brag but to say I truly believe in eating ’real’ foods.  I also stopped my eating disorder from the physical side.

I have done, used, tried, learned about many alternative healing modalities and became a practitioner of some.  My kids got the benefits of me needing to practice on people – they were younger and loved it – mostly hot stone massage.

 

I share that as it’s truly been part of my life – ask anyone who knows me personally or spends time with me.

Eat Real Foods

A couple of years ago I started feeling like I needed to move beyond food as the focus – was promoting Superfoods and recipes etc  I knew there was more, Energy, The matrix, etc was calling me.  Since that time I dove into Human Design, Akashic Records (again), Emotion Code, Yoga, some Breath work, Karma Clearing, DNA Activation, Consciousness, The Matrix and more.

 

Got training thinking I would be doing some of those – so used to taking care of others, yet the more layers and healing I peeled back of myself more of the truth came clearer.

The more I learn about energy it’s incredible and fascinating

Even the energy of food – once you realize, learn or understand it you won’t eat much if any process chemical laden foods or foods from animals that have been abused – you just won’t!!

 

So why am I sharing all of this?

 

As you may know the past 18 months or so I’ve been doing much of my own healing and deep inner work – so much so that once I understood some of my programs, beliefs, perceptions I have had to eliminate people, foods, certain things from my life that were not in alignment – anyone or anything that does not stand in truth, integrity, love, honesty I’ve let go of or walked away.

I am grateful for the times we spent, things we did or happened and being showed what I don’t desire or who I am not.

 

Once you understand energy – Everything IS Energy and everything is a frequency and when you are doing the inner work things and people can become misaligned – we try to hang on yet there is no resonance now.

 

As in being the health / superfoods promoter – I will always share as it’s my lifestyle easily but it’s not my focus or my truth as why I am here.

 

Peeling off the personas and masks down to the truth – my truth – the truth of who I am  – those are the whispers from our soul – if we choose to hear or listen.

 

Yet the head, ego or buying into someone else’s limiting beliefs that you can’t do that or you won’t make money or blah blah blah keeps one stuck or not moving in the direction of their dreams, their truth, that was the case for me.

No one else knows your truth but you and unfortunately many of us decided to have amnesia or put on masks.

 

It’s time to take it off.  The energy of the earth is shifting to help each of us – who are willing to do the inner work and remember – it is time and safe to step into our truth and the world needs you!

There IS Always Beauty to be Seen

Even since I was a young teenager I wanted to be a Photographer.  I even went to school for that and was going to head off to the big city to do it.  Just one winter in Banff to ski first once I finished school then I would go.  Then it became –  well ok maybe next year  and next year never came.

 

Now I did work at the Banff Center as the assistant Photographer and did do my first show in Banff yet I always found an excuse to put my camera down as I bought into programs and didn’t feel like I was good enough.

 

Big Fat Fucking Lies

 

Finally, I have taken off the mask and am ready to step forward and claim myself as an Art Photographer – so much so that I am putting it out here.  I even potentially have booked my first show for later this year.

Because I am changing so is my Photography – it will be heading in a new direction – more focus, creative, artistic and different – can’t wait to share.

 

I already have several projects and collaborations to work on and I am feeling the excitement and exhilaration of it all.

 

So, I ask you – are you living your truth?

 

If time and money were not an issue what would you truly be doing? How would you spend your time? Who would you be?  It’s that thing you love doing and if you never made a penny doing it you would still do it.

 

It’s not too late.

 

We are energetic beings – we are energy which is electrical, which creates a current which translate into currency.

 

Many of us have been programmed that we have to work hard, or at jobs we don’t like or……..for currency.

 

Its time for a radical shift – the energy is supporting us all who want to step into our truth!!

 

I hope you do!!

The Truth Will Set You Free

The Truth Will Set You Free

When You are Living Your Truth there is Much More Flow

 

The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.

–  Gloria Steinen

We must unlearn what we have learned because a conditioned mind cannot comprehend the infinite.

–  unknown

Universe doesn’t speak English – it speaks in frequencies as in vibes.

The first step of change is to become aware of your own BS – belief systems or bull shit – same thing really 🙂

There are no others out there – whatever you see outside is your own reflection – your mind is creating all of this – it’s a movie and you are the lead role – is it a blockbuster or nightmare?

The Universe has shaken me to awaken me – I saw that quote and it was so fitting.  When shit happens we can either become victims or dive deep within to see what’s really going on and to clear the beliefs, patterns, programs so the real You can emerge.

It’s so worth it when you move through it – as the real You that has been covered up starts to emerge, that is the truth that will set you free!!

Most people do not see their beliefs.

Instead their beliefs tell them what to see.

This is the simple difference between clarity and confusion.

Our ‘Reality’ is not as real as you may think!

I am also pretty sure that the title Raw, Naked and Beautiful could have some pretty interesting thoughts or images dancing around one’s head 🙂

I took on and named this project almost 2 years ago – it’s been in my thoughts constantly yet I struggled with a few things – with the direction and within me – now much more is becoming clear and it’s truly the time to move forward with this!!

Raw, Naked and Beautiful stands for Real, Authentic and Truth – and I may, actually I hope 🙂 as the deeper I dig, I realize how little I know or understand about the real energetics of living and being yet my journey and inquestable thirst for truth (ahh being a true Sagg) I would love to share what I am finding as our ‘reality’ that seems so real is not what you nor I think or have been taught it is!!

Our so called ‘ reality’ is such a man made construct based on anything but truth,  We are multi dimensional beings that view and live life through our 5 senses which is extremely limiting as we cannot keep up with how much information is in our awareness or fields each moment therefore we have beliefs, programs, patterns, judgments, points of views etc that everything gets censored through – kind of like that telephone line game as a kid – remember how distorted the information was by the time it hit the last person – no where near how it started out usually.  Funny in the game but not always funny in the game called life!

Real Foods – what the body needs!!

Raw is about real – real foods, real emotions, real conversations, real ways of living and being.  Where can we be more real in our lives?  I will dive more into all of this in upcoming posts!!  We are turning more into who we are and living from the heart more not the head. (psss – there will be a little gift coming out soon so check back in shortly)

Raw, Naked and Beautiful Project

Naked is about being Authentic – whether that is having your photo taken in the nude, semi nude or not it’s who are you truly and how do you want to be seen being the real you!?  And speaking of naked – what is wrong with the human body, your body? Do you love it? or not?  It’s time to let go of negative self talk, self abuse and another twisted thoughts about nudity being pornographic etc  Our bodies are the place our Souls call home – love it and a big part of that is being the real you! I will share my journey of my relationship with food, my body and self and why now this is my mission.  Some major deprogramming for some of us for sure!!

Celebrate YOUR Awesomeness!!

Beautiful is about Truth – the truth of who we are!  I so love using the snowflake analogy as it seems to work – we are each like a beautiful,unique snowflake that when we come together we all play an unique role but when looked t separately we look different, are unique and beautiful – so why try and be like anyone else!!?? Loe your unique, quirky, beautiful awesomeness!!! 🙂

We all came into this world pure, innocent and full of love – somewhere along the line the story got distorted.

The journeys to come home, back to self, back to love.

When we leave planetEarth we may be asked of our time here – how much were you able to love and how much were you able to receive love………

So I leave you with this question – where in your life can you be more, raw, naked and beautiful??

Eat Real

Live Authentically

Love Yourself

Laugh Often

Be Awesome!!!

Here are a few examples  – judgment vs non-judgment or anyone or anything, ease vs struggle, love & self love vs hatred and self hatred, happy vs sad and so on.  It’s ok to move thru different emotions s that is part of the human experience down here but to stay in a lower state for extended periods of time is not real living or being as each decision we make – even how we feel is based on coming from love or fear.

Vancouver’s Science Center in Early Morning Fog – Are You Living in a Fog too?

You may or may not know your truth at a core level …..yet…….

‘We are Spiritual beings in a Human body suffering from amnesia’……..we truly forget who we are. We are living in the 3 dimension reality – that everyone adapts to that allows for duality and separation.

We have been enslaved in a system of false beliefs that don’t work for many of us – look around most people are sick, on auto pilot, judging, competing, self loathing, addictions are high or just extremely unhappy – where is the joy, bliss and love?

As long as our ‘ego mind leads and the heart is closed, the connection to our Soul is blocked most of the time.

The Soul of our being is our true essence.

We are not our bodies.

We are not our minds therefore our thoughts.

We are not our stories.

We are not our circumstances.

Yet look around and ask ‘How are we truly living?’

Our society praises the logical mind and looks at any of us that use or have strong intuition as ‘weird or different – being different and not fitting in here is not always easy.  Yet the whole system is based on fear and being plugged into the matrix.

The illusion of duality in the third dimension allows us to experience light and darkness, good and bad, joy and despair, better and worse. Actually the only choice we have: Love or fear. – in ALL that we think, feel or do.

As a Spiritual being – even with amnesia – the truth is  love – everything else is a big fat fucking lie.

Choose Love and start with Self!
