We are living in a time of evolution in consciousness. There is an awakening of remembrance both individually and as a global collective.  Change is here, and we are rapidly being ushered back into alignment with universal truths.  We are evolving from a space of separation into a space of Oneness.  The more you align, accept, and love who you are, the more power, and infinite potential that lay dormant within is awakened. You are more than your body, and mind. Give yourself over to the discovery of what is great within you. You are reading these words because you have a knowing that there is something more to life than your current realities presentation.

This book is a guide to assist you through the process of change. Written in a non-linear fashion the frequencies unencumbered by structure, created a vibrational pattern that is unique to this world.  While the ideas, and concepts presented in a structured arranged format give the mind information, the patterns behind, and within the writings emits healing frequencies from Divine realms of Spirit.

The writings, activations, and meditations were created on a multi-dimensional level to be used as a healing tool for your heart.  It is your own heart that will lead you into the new pattern of Love.  Release the patterns that no longer serve your highest potential. This opens up a clear space for your new worlds to emerge.  (Book -255 pages)   Available through and Amazon.

Nineteenth-century British poet William Wordsworth wrote, "our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting of our previous heavenly existence." Dancing with the Diamond Star begins as a story about a light being that is completely self-aware as an expression of Divinity. Then in response to the call of Love the Diamond Star Light becomes the dance of life in human form as a baby. Yet as with most if not all people, as she grew older she began to shift away from the greater truth of the Self, and became entrained to the fullest quandary of being human. The human path is a dualistic journey. In this story the personal journey offered a kaleidoscope of teachers along the way to illuminate her steps especially the travailing ones.  There is something more to life than the current realities presentation.  When we surrender the polarized distinctions that catalogue our life experiences from dualistic perceptions we will live in an enlightened state where there are no opposites. We will become the Holy Diamond Star Light. Until then, the mystical experience of the Holy Light will be experienced as a projection back to us reflecting our own inner brilliance.

This book points to the truth of Oneness through an in depth exploration of Fundamental Unity and The Holy Light which spans every Religion and Culture. Use this book as a teacher and a guide to help illuminate new ideas or concepts actuating a remembrance in you.
