Duality is just like a photograph that is black and white.
Black – White
Dark – Light
We all have darkness and light within ourselves, also known as a shadow self – the parts unseen or not wanting to look at.
Dense emotions such as fear, shame, guilt, judgments etc, hidden aspects, wounded ego are examples.
It’s when we go within and shine a light, an awareness on that darkness of those energies, those memories, those stories and change the energies from fear, shame, guilt, judgments etc to forgiveness, love, awareness is when we truly start emerging and freeing ourselves.
To bring more light to the dark we then become lighter literally. BEing a higher vibrational energy of forgiveness, love, joy etc are light AND our truth.
We are literally more Light – therefore Love.
Duality is supposed to exist in black and white photos not within us!!
We Lock Ourselves Up by Playing Small – Door in Cuba
The Living Soul of a man, once conscious of it’s power, cannot be quelled.
– Horace Mann
The authentic Self is the Soul made visible.
What does Awakening even mean – and I don’t mean from sleep – well now that I write that, I stand corrected – yes from asleep yet not from when we go to bed at night – we are asleep – are you waking up?
Awakening – wakefulness, the state of being Conscious.
What is Consciousness?
Consciousness – is the state of being aware.
Aware of what?
Not in an egotistical sense, but one that knows they are not their emotions, thoughts, or feelings – they are observers of it all. We are not our stories or even our bodies. We are connected with Self starting with Self Love and that everything outside of ourself is a reflection of ourself, or a feed back loop – to what one is truly thinking and feeling.
Aware that we are truly a Soul (or Energy or Consciousness) having a Human experience.
That we are truly Multi Dimensional Beings – which means we are Infinite.
Everywhere there are People – Souls having a Human Experience – Cuba
Yet since putting on the human costume we’ve forgotten that and really bought into the story aka life we are living. I know – I’ve been one of them!!
What do I mean by that?
Lets say you go to the movies – lets pretend it’s like 1970’s or something where there still is a movie projector so if we were to look at the reel of film we can see each individual frame. Yet when the movie project is running each frame moves thru the view finder that gets projected onto the screen and it appears live – one cannot tell one frame from another. (oh I will dive more into that in another post too!!)
We watch the movie – we may lose awareness of things around us (unless you have a noisy person near by as an example) and we get caught up in the movie – the drama, excitement, love affair etc we get caught up in the moment of being part of the movie. Then it ends and we remember who we are and get up and leave the movie theatre and go back to our lives. We know we are not the movie.
That is similar to what is happening when we put on our human costume – we do forget, while the movie aka our life is playing out in front of us that we are truly just here for the experiences and we are much bigger than any of it. We are Infinite Beings – yet we play small, we truly get caught up in all the stories, dramas, programs, points of views etc
Why is that?
All the programs, beliefs and points of views we have running ( I will go into more of that in a future post as well).
Everything is Just an Interesting Point of View
Bit of a mind trip I know – yet movies like the Matrix actually gave us some clues – if we were paying attention. What we have been taught really isn’t the truth.
I caught the first 2 parts of David Icke talking about Waking up this weekend and I think he shares it well (You are Infinity Living in a Bubble Part 1 and Part 2) especially about the Infinite I and the Small I – you may learn more about what I am trying to share here and how some the programming has taken place. It may open your eyes, it may help to start waking you up!
It really is time to wake up.
Wake up to who you truly are and step into Your own Power.
Part of Awakening is also knowing that there really only is Love, Light and Truth – if it isn’t any of those then chances are it’s a BFFL!!
Remember – Science and Quantum Physics is proving this – this is not some hippy dippy nomad chick who’s gone off on a trip!! 🙂
The Soul is an energy of Infinite Possibilities – it’s time to remember and be part of the Awakening that is going on!!
REmember – The Soul is Divine, It is Love, It is Infinite. Being Infinite means a greater number of Possibilities…………..the Mind and Ego will tell you otherwise and those my friends, are just programs and programs can be deleted!!
In order to save myself, I must destroy first the me I was told to be.
This is the simple difference between clarity and confusion.
– Matt Khan
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??

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.

Be in the Moment to See the Beauty in the Smallest of Things
It’s when we slow down, connect with our breathe, be fully present in the now
See the beauty in even the smallest of things
As Everything IS a reflection and an extension of YOU.
Your relationship with self, food and your body extends out into the world where everything and everyone is a feed back loop for what is truly going on inside of you.
It’s time to come back home to the truth of who you are.
If it’s not Love it’s probably a story that you keep telling yourself
Isn’t it time to tell a new story?
You are beauty.
You are unique.
You are here for a reason.
Step into the truth of who you truly are and shine your light!
Be Still – Be Present – Be Love

Each moment we have is a choice – we get to choose how we feel, what we think and how we live our lives. So what is the difference?
choose the path of least resistance
settle in life
become part of the herd mentality
you blame outside circumstances or other people for things going wrong in your life
working a job you hate for a pay check
lie, cheat, steal or manipulate as you are not connected to the Universal energy or trusting of it
afraid to speak your mind or stand out or up for what you believe in (don’t really know what that is either)
you don’t listen to hear you listen to answer
in your head a lot trying to figure it out
don’t trust – very concrete in the 3D reality
change is scary
its usually about me (you)
Thriving Creates Dreams
know oneself or on the path of knowing oneself therefore one’s values and beliefs too
In more states of Love, Joy, Bliss & Gratitude for your life and what you are choosing in it knowing you are creating it ALL
you surround yourself with people who are doing, being and living the same way – higher vibe people
you take care of yourself mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually
you don’t come from a place of judgement, competition or needing to manipulate anyone asLove is a stronger vibe in your world and you love yourself and everyone as equals
you know or at least are on the path of knowing how the Universe works
you do things and spend time doing things that you love doing and bring you joy or to help make a difference in the world
maybe even you are becoming aware of the Matrix and getting out of it!! 🙂
If Everything IS Energy – YOU are a Creator NOT a Victim – it’s never to late to start thriving!!

When we aren’t able to receive it’s like having a closed door that we don’t or can’t open – we are literally being closed off.
The other night I was given a personal compliment, which I noticed I could not fully receive – you know the under comfortable feeling in the body, the blowing it off or laughing it off and not being able to say thank you as you don’t believe it or can’t see or feel it.
Now, at the same time I also took notice that 2, 5 or 10 years ago I would not have been able to receive any or most of it – so I’ve come a long way!
I took note of it and sat with it the next day – asking myself some questions – What was in the way of me from totally receiving? What’s right about me that I’m not getting? How could this shift easily and effortlessly?
If I am not able to fully receive in one area of my life, then I can’t in others as well. If I couldn’t receive fully then I wasn’t shining my light fully either – this is where beliefs and programs come in aka ‘I’m not good enough.’
I also realized that I can’t see or perceive what someone else can. I assume that they see what I see, but who knows really what another sees.
By not being able to receive compliments I am diminishing their light as well by not acknowledging their choice for whatever reason.
Being able to receive say a compliment should be no harder than to hear ‘Please pass the plate of veggies”.
Thank you is the best response to btw.
Let the Universe Surprise You!
When we can easily and effortlessly receive even the small things in life and be grateful for them the Universe will keep giving us more and will surprise us – if we get out of our heads of how things should be!
The more we can receive for ourselves as in compliments the more we can show up as we are not hiding behind programs and thoughts like ‘I’m not good enough’.
We gotta stop squashing each other’s lights and start sharing and spreading the light – being open to receive is a great place.
Thank you for reading and sharing this!
How are you on receiving?
What could you do differently today to receive more?
And a BIG Thank you for my friend showing me where I still needed to grow and become more aware!!
I decided to create a short video to share from my heart about moving in the direction of Higher Vibe Living – why and what it means to me and reaching out to women especially women who have and do struggle with emotional eating – it’s really the same behind any pattern or addiction to degree.
Since it is easier to share in words than writing from my heart I will start doing more vids – never thought I would!! Yet I still will do my photography as I so enjoy that!!
Please feel free to leave a comment or share!
Have a fantastic day!!

I will be short here as while I was writing the post it got way too long lol way too much to share!!
In short for this post:
Everything is Energy and therefore everything has vibration!!
We need to raise our vibration to be more love & light!!
More Light & Love is Needed!!
From every thought you think, to feeling you feel to action you take. To every piece of food you put in your body, to every piece in and on your body to everything in your house etc
Everything is Energy!
Science is and has been proving this – now it’s our time to wake up and learn it or I should say re-learn it as when we came to this experiment called planet Earth we actually did know it!
I’ve known much for awhile and kept quiet, yet the more I learn I realize the less I actually know!
Are you in love with your life? How you are living? Being the true authentic expression of who you really be? Are you feeding the body real foods or are you just eating so called things labelled as ‘food’ and not always in the present (paying attention as in not on your phone, in front of the tv or computer) or because you are bored, addicted or use it as an escape tool for truly feeling?
The word I was using before was Consciousness and I am learning it is highly misunderstood I feel – people say they are conscious but if you look at their lives or patterns or actions they take it’s clear they are not – me either – I am still learning and growing much, so I am not judging just being aware.
When one is really conscious they are basically enlightened – I am far from that yet I am moving in the direction of higher vibe living and have been and I know from my heart that is what I am here to share and help others awaken to their true selves, their essence and all the lies and bs we have been programmed to believe.
I won’t be focusing on all the lies and bs but will mention it as they are other people bringing much to light on those topics!! I would rather prefer to focus as much as possible on solutions, and things that are working and sharing what’s worked for me, different ways of thinking, feeling, eating and living.
Love is the Highest Vibration!
We are all underestimating our potential, power and love.
Sorry guys but especially us women – self love, self nurturing is so important now for everyone but especially women and not from an egotistical or narcissistic way but in a loving way. I also see a lot of low self worth, and emotional eating and what the media etc has conditioned us to believe who we should be or what we should be doing from an interesting point of view – once you start waking up or on the path of a Higher Vibrational way of living and being.
So instead of writing out a long post I wanted to share from the heart – the video will be up shortly so stop back!!
With much Love & Gratitude
Eat Real Food!

Remember the Sun doesn’t give a shit if it blinds you!!
Owning our stories can be hard but not really as difficult as spending our lives running from them.
Remember they are just stories and can be changed whenever you decide to.
The world needs your light and love now more than ever!!
I watched a great talk with Dr. Joe Dispenza, Gregg Braden and Bruce Lipton on Youtube – so many juicy nuggets but the best most fascinating one for me was – the mind and the body do not store any memories – they are ALL stored in the field…….or I think what is also known as the Akashic Records – the body is just the processor of the emotions we attach to the memories……..how cool is that?
The mind is the accumulation of antenna that we grow in our lifetime to tune into the place in the field where the info resides.
We are resonators attuning to the field.
This is now published in Peer Review Science journals!!
What do you want to attune to??
We are so much more powerful than we have been taught or led to believe – we can make different choices and create new habits, beliefs and patterns – so baby Shine Your Light!!!
Light can Shine even Brighter After a Storm

When we are truly growing and expanding we are bringing Consciousness to our Unconscious patterns and ways of being.
Letting go of Fears, Judgments, Lies and Survival.
We can build a Depth of Self Awareness that enables us to Live more Fully, Love more Deeply, Communicate more Honestly therefore allowing ourselves to Create from Inspiration – then truly we can make the difference we were put on Earth to make!!
Create Magical Moments by living from Consciousness and & Inspiration!!
