Consciousness has no religion, no belief, no ideology, no gender, no sexuality, no race, no age, no nationality, no judgments……….You ARE Consciousness!!
After spending much time, as I shared in my last couple of posts digging in and doing some deep inner work this past year – I have also been diving into Quantum Physics and deeper into Consciousness and Energy as well – mind blowing is all I can say – seems simple yet not always easy due to ALL the BS (belief systems but yes the other one too), programs, doubts, fears etc
The more I learn I realize how little I know – being a Sagg I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and truth…….we have been lied to in so many ways and much will be exposed in 2018 in the world -and within ourselves – it time to take off our masks, live from our truth, connect more with our Souls and raise our Vibrations – which in essence is our awareness and our Consciousness.
My intention is to possibly plant seeds, wake one up on food, self love, body love, advertising, emotional eating, doing what you love to do and more………… we need now more than ever for people – especially women to step into their feminine yet powerful, authentic selves.
I have never felt it stronger and heard it as loud as I do now!!
As I sit on the back patio in Mexico I get to watch 2 Humming birds flying around and entertain me in between taking sips of their water – what a joy to watch – and that is what Humming birds represent is Joy in the native animal cards………where can you lose some old out dated beliefs, fears, programs and bring more Joy into your life?
It starts with a state of being.
As 2017 draws to an end I love to reflect back on what all happened, transpired, changed etc and start setting intentions for where I want to go and be doing for the next year BUT I don’t ever set any New Years resolutions and I will share why in my next post – maybe you will decide not to as well!!
Stop Paying Attention to What is Going on Around You
Don’t become too preoccupied by what is happening around you, Pay more attention to what is going on within you.
-Mary Frances Winters
Today, the day after winter Solstice is when Mercury comes out of Retrograde and is now in it’s shadow part. I am not too much into Astrology – but maybe you noticed or felt it this time?? – this Retrograde was about reflecting, reviewing, revisiting on the past of 2017 and for some of us it was rather intense!
There is much on the internet for Astrology – Leo King, Kaypacha are my fav’s when I tap in.
Sometimes the Void is a Struggle – Just Surrender
Yet worth it!!
All good, yet not always easy as it feels like time is standing still. For me I felt like I was in a void – once I realized this I knew I had to surrender and review. When we can do that or spend some time in solitude, in nature, in quietness, in the question (not having an attachment or coming to conclusion) then we can allow in new energies, new thoughts, new beliefs and new ways of being for the coming year – 2018.
We learn to see and be from a new perspective which is a different energy which then creates a different life. For me it has been extremely healing and expanding and growing!!
Quantum Physics and many people have proven that Everything IS Energy…….we ARE energy, consciousness, angels, souls or whatever other name you want to cal it – yet dressed up as a human while here on planet earth to learn some lessons, play, have fun, experience a wide range of emotions as once we return aka die – we go back to being pure love, light energy.
None of this will matter – as it’s ALL an illusion any ways……….a bit of a mind fuck isn’t it?? Yet when we approach it like that we won’t take it too seriously 🙂
What truly matters is how much did we love and how much were we able to give and be love.
It ALL starts with self.
Everything and Everyone is just a reflection back to us from our internal state of thinking and being.
Everything & Everyone IS Just a Reflection
Mercury rules the mind – our minds are very powerful – they are either working against us, with us or for us!!
Take some time before the end of 2017 to reflect and review to be able to be clear on what does work for you in your life and what doesn’t.
Create each day from the energy of being and feeling – joy, love, gratitude, bliss and whatever else that pleases you.
After all – it is YOUR life.!!
Much Love & Gratitude
Self Love is True Love
Self Love is NOT Selfish – You cannot truly love another until you know how to love yourself!!
It was 1 year ago today I arrived in Mexico to do my first out of the country house sit.
I took the red eye out of Vancouver leaving behind snow and ice – first time I saw snow stay in Vancouver for more than a day or two – little did I know at that time the snow would only continue coming big time over the next few months.
Within my first 10 days of arriving in Mexico I had my birthday, had to put my dog down – while my best friend and father of my kids held the phone so I could talk to Spirit as he transition, then next my relationship of over 21/2 years came to an abrupt end.
It was like my Soul wanted growth with no distractions – I didn’t know a soul in Mexico, couldn’t speak the language and had a little dog and cat to look after.
Fast forward a year now and the growth, healing, experiences, people I’ve met, things I’ve done, the programming and ways of being and earning an income that I’ve let go of was nothing I was thinking was going to happen when I came to Mexico – yet I was open to new experiences………I need to be really clear from now on! 🙂
I realized I truly wasn’t on the right path……I still had deeper work to do, experiences to experience on my own, people to meet, projects to start and reignite, places to see and photograph, journeys to take and to become more aware of energies and programs I was still running that weren’t serving me.
I went to Cuba and walked over 100 miles in less than 8 days and have over 2000 images that I shot while there. I did Yoga teacher training, spent many hours doing Yoga and walking the beach meditating, participated in Temezcals (Mexican Sweat Lodges), created a Why We do Yoga book with over 60 Yogis on Amazon and did a lot of soul searching on my own.
Why We do Yoga – on my blog & Amazon
In sharing all of that I want to extend a huge shout out to my friends that held space for me to process things and emotions – you know who you are, I am so eternally grateful and I love you!! Also had some amazing healers that helped me move thru things much faster – I love Energy Healing Modalities – all I can say is they work and work well. Alina and Kare did Emotion code with me – you can find out more about it here or watch the documentary E-motion. Neither has a website up yet but if you want to experience a session reach out to me and I can give you their contact info – they are both amazing!. I did a Soul Retrevial with Jodi Parker who is someone I adore as she walks her talk and is very good at what she does –which is several things but you have to experience one of her sessions! Her site is Higher Living Journey. Another person who I adore and is also very gifted at what she does is Sandra Wagman Sargeant – she has been reading for me for years and her readings are usually bang on! You can find out more about her and her readings at Readings with a Twist . All ladies work with anyone anywhere – love technology!!
Wow what a year it’s been.
No it was not always fun – but yet oh so worth it!!!
I also have had many amazing moments as well!!
Sunshine Coast, BC
And I just got back from spending 6 weeks in Canada – not the right time of year I agree but it’s how timing works sometimes. I did some photo shoots for friends, my project, learn to connect with Spirit (no not my dog 🙂 but he did come in), saw many dear people (alive :)), released more of my stuff to truly becoming a nomad (and sad to say some people too yet it’s all good) – that happens when you just are not vibrating at the same level any longer.
It was cold oh so cold for me which makes me appreciate being back in Mexico even more so despite it being cold here right now too – it’s still warmer than Canada!! Lol
And I just started another house sitting gig with my original person – now it’s not 1 dog and cat it’s 3 adorable little dogs.
I feel so blessed to what has happened, is happening and what is coming in 2018.
Greens & Superfoods!!!
Health and eating healthy will always be important to me, and I will always share as I do believe in superfoods (as you will see on my blog), live foods and more. I had the privilege of photographing Troy and Sharon with their domes and towers and I am getting some towers – I think everyone could use these towers – we need to be growing our own foods!! The info and link will be on my site soon if you want or know you should be growing your own food too!!
Growing Towers for Nutrient Dense Foods!
I’ve also dived into the crypto world big time – I have had Bitcoin for a couple of years and got educated on that big time but sat back – now I’ve jumped in much stronger and also highly encourage others to do so too!! Reach out if you have questions or don’t know where to begin!
Living outside the box is more important to me than ever before. My time in Canada and USA re-enforced that. The stress I see people under, the prices, the politics and more.
For me that is not truly living my highest potential – as that is not my path.
What is calling me more than ever, what is truly wanting to be expressed now is a deepening within my own self to my true potential of living life to the fullest and one of those things is expressing the creativity from within that I’ve kept hidden for a long time and breaking free from self limiting programming especially around emotional eating. I have always had a love for photography yet I put down my camera for many years – doesn’t matter now why but I did – and as you can see I have no ‘niche’ I enjoy capturing many moments……….just wait!! 🙂
I know adventure, health, quantum physics, self love, art and photography are part of 2018 – and what I do love is working wherever I am as being the Sagg that I am my freedom is what is important to me.
How is 2018 looking for you?
Life is too short to be doing anything that does not bring you true joy and happiness.
We do create our lives – even when the shit hits the fan – it helps to show us who we aren’t or what no longer aligns with our true being – so take it as an opportunity for growth not to play the victim.
Thank you for stopping by, feel free to reach out with any questions or share this post!!
Creating Love, Magic and Joy
4 Men – Havana, Cuba

It should be yet it’s not – I get tested every day – every moment – we all do.
It’s showing me how little I have been present many times in my life – the now is constantly changing and if we are thinking about the past and should haves and what ifs then we are not present. If we are worried about the future, stressed about money or whats going to happen then we are not present.
Having a conversation with someone and thinking about your reply as they are speaking we are not present.
Surfing the internet while talking to a friend on the phone – we are not present.
I could go on! 🙂
I had an interesting interaction Sunday morning on the beach – fairly early yet not as early as I usually go – I had my camera on the tripod and I had it aimed at a big rock and some smaller rocks on the edge of the ocean – I was doing long exposure – so it wasn’t a quick point and shoot, but regardless my camera was set up. Two ladies in their 20’s came along and climbed up the rock – I was about 20 ft away, and they proceeded to stand on the rock and take selfies for about 10 mins.
Now I could have reacted, gotten pissed off, but I just observed. I laughed watching it all to be honest and I also watched any judgments I had. I could have let it ruin my moment, my day or my shoot – I chose none of the above. I am not a person who usually gets angry but I do get frustrated – didn’t choose that one either.
Being Present in each Moment
Conscious Living is about being more present in each and every moment no matter what you are doing or what is going on but it is also about knowing you are the creator of your life and you do have choice in each moment – how you respond or react.
Not always easy I know, yet the more we practice it the easier it will become and life can become more of a flow and more magical!
We all have stories, triggers, patterns and programs running – oh and much brain washing that has happened – by becoming more aware of them, healing, releasing, or clearing them we can become more conscious in our every day lives.
After all, isn’t it YOUR life?
Bentinho Massaru has some great videos on much of this topic and he’s opened up his academy for free!

There are always signs from the Universe IF we are paying attention.
When we are greeted by a sign or synchronicity there is no longer the question – there is only the answer!
If we are energy – and we are – when we have put out a question to the Universe and do not come to conclusions with an answer, we are sending out a vibration and the Universe loves to support us, surprise us and over deliver.
It’s interesting the things we worry or fear about instead of knowing what we desire, setting clear intentions and moving in that directions without expectations and conclusions.
The flow of energy.
I have been struggling with some decisions lately in my life – it’s like I am at a fork in the road and it’s been draining and hard – because I have been trying to figure it out. That in itself should tell me 🙂
But I started paying attention to signs and they were coming even in funny ways – how, when and where I least expected it!! 🙂
I chose the photo above as I just came back to Sayulita in Mexico – where I spent a couple of months earlier this year. I walked down the beach yesterday to see these rocks and not only are the Inuk Shuks gone but so are many the rocks – if you have an urge in the moment – then Go For It as you never know what can happen after that. As a Photographer a missed opportunity of creativity!!
Let go of thinking, come from the heart and follow what you love to do and be.
That is the only true way to live!
Create a fantastic day!!

Surrender lower vibrational forms of thinking that limitations are real, that you are not good enough, that you can’t see how.
We live in an infinite ocean of infinite possibilities and potential.
You are suppose to live, follow and love from your heart. Believe in self.
Let the Universe know the how!
When we limit ourselves through our 5 senses to what is real or possible we have to remind ourselves that we do that through filters of lack, our beliefs, our points of view, programs, our perceptions and even our ego and that don’t always support us.
We forget that we are Consciousness that is One with the Source of all that is.
So by thinking and feeling I can’t, I’m not good enough, I don’t see etc then that is what the Universe responds to.
The Universe or otherwise known as the Field does not understand words or thoughts – it only understands vibrations which starts with a thought that leads to an emotion or feeling which creates a vibration.
The Universe always responds.
As you think, act and feel you will receive.
I am choosing Self Love, Love, Joy, Bliss, Gratitude, Passion, Health and Abundance.
What are you choosing?

Holy crap I spent the last 5 days laying very low and near the bathroom…….Montezuma’s revenge – somethings only need to be experienced one in life lol I so appreciate even more so how good I feel on an on going basis!! Clean eating and living pays off big time.
I find it interesting I got hit with this as the Full moon was coming and a strong one before the eclipse and Mercury going retrograde. It is Reset time are the powerful energies of now.
With the time of laying low gave me some time to think about much in my life – many awarenesses came up and allowed me to clear some old patterns and ways of being – it’s a very powerful time – if you choose it to be!!
Reset time allows one to start new, refreshed and to have clarity.
There are a lot of energetic shifts going on.
Best place to go is within – no need to get sick to do so!! lol
Time to get clear on what you truly desire, how you want to show up in the world and how you want to live especially before Mercury retrograde.
Remember if Everything IS Energy – and it is – YOU are way more powerful than you’ve been lead to believe!!
Create a Magical Day

Heart Energy – coming from unconditional love from the heart. Not easy in this world as we are taught that logical thinking is the most important thing, yet so many of us are shut down and cut off from our heart.
Our heart is the connection to our soul it is also the mediator between our lower 3 energy centres and the 3 higher energy centres. In other words it is the bridge for manifesting from the spiritual or etheric world into the physical world.
Heart energy aka love is the only truth – unconditional love – starting with self and when that is pure and true it generates out to everyone and everything else as once the 5 senses are removed everything IS energy and everything IS one.
Things and people will constantly present us with things that trigger us – how we react or respond to any of them is up to us. If we are growing and evolving then we are looking, processing and taking responsibility for any and all triggers as everything is a reflection of our internal world and to come back to love – doesn’t mean you have to have that person or thing in your life – love them / it and the lesson and move on.
Nothing is true unless we give it our attention.
Shifts are happening big time – from the 3rd Dimension to the 4th – lots of changes and a lot of triggers are coming up for people – how you process is always of course up to you. The 4th dimension is where the heart truly opens, unity consciousness, forgiveness, abundance, and where Universal Laws are and working with energy more!!
Create an amazing day filled with Love!

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!
