The Answers Are Within: The Fascinating Journey Of Expanding Your Consciousness

Does your life have a purpose?

Did you choose to come here?

Is there a deeper meaning to your existence?

Or is this all just a coincidence with no meaning?

There is an energetic plant growing inside of you.

And you are fuelling its growth with thoughts, feelings, actions, experiences, and knowledge.

When you get to a certain stage in life…

You realise that the real game is played internally.

You realise that the real game is to GROW and EXPAND the unlimited consciousness that’s inside of you.

It’s making EARTH-SHATTERING realisations.

It’s making MIND-BLOWING shifts in perception.

It’s peeling back the layers of programming that have been DRILLED into your unconscious mind throughout your life.

It’s changing how you think, how you feel, and how you act.

It’s changing how you see, interact with, and contribute to the world around you.

It’s embarking on the journey of self-actualisation.

It’s the daily act of working on your self-transformation.

It is awakening and GROWING the consciousness that lives inside of your meat vehicle.

Expanding your consciousness

Does anyone know the true purpose of life?

Maybe…maybe not.

I believe that your purpose here on Earth is to realise and continually step into your highest potential (and only you know what that looks like)…

The journey is the destination.

The act of becoming is the point.

This moment.

Right now.

Is all there ever is. 

The journey is the destination.

Immerse in it…Pay attention to the details.

Slow down…

Lift your head up, breathe, and come to your senses as often as possible.

Take your shoes off and walk on the grass.

Go and hug a tree. 





Come to your senses.

You will plan ahead.

You will use your mind for other things outside of giving your attention to the present moment.

E.g. for creating your future.

It’s a superpower.

You will set goals.

You will achieve those goals and reach new levels.

This is a beautiful part of the journey.

However, it is not why you do it.

There is NOTHING external that will meet the level of satisfaction that you are looking for.

That level of satisfaction can only come from within.

By showing yourself, through your thoughts, feelings, and actions

That you are here.

That you are present.

That you are living.

That you are tapped in.

That you are on the path

That you are being authentically you

That you are living in alignment with your highest potential.

Life is waiting for your participation.

And if you slow down, listen, and ACT

You WILL receive your invitation.

Peeling back the layers

We are all programmed in one way, shape, or form.

Our jobs, parents, relationships, teachers, TV shows, and social media have all programmed our unconscious minds to think, feel, and act in a certain way.

And this all happens over time, as you learn from and absorb all the information that is presented to your senses.

These experiences, imprints, conversations, emotions, etc

All play a part in developing your unconscious perceptions and beliefs that make up the lens through which you view reality.

The sorcery from behind the curtain has created a very 2D experience of reality and a 2D experience of being human. 

This sorcery comes in the form of controlling perceptions, manipulating emotions, and creating a box out of imaginary walls and illusions, in an attempt to control your reality.

Peeling back the layers is the act of removing the magic wand from the man behind the curtain and realising that the power was yours all along.

It’s becoming aware of the spell that you have been under…

Because awareness is the precursor of change.

In other words…

The great thing about mind control.

The great thing about dark magic.

Is that once you are aware of the magician’s trick.

It no longer fools you.

You see straight through it.

And you take your attention, your power, your energy, your health, and your life BACK!

If you’re still under the spell.

If you’re still being fooled…

You might have missed that there is a great awakening happening.

If you are thinking outside of the box…

If you can see through the programming…

If you are aware of the magician’s trick…

Then you are fully aware of the powerful change in vibration that is happening around the world and how you are directly related to it.

The collective consciousness is expanding at a rate that is hard to comprehend.

How can we know how far and wide it has reached?

It’s not for us to know right now.

One thing is for sure… it is spreading like wild fire.

And I bet that it’s spreading faster than we can even imagine.

It is happening within you and all around you.

You are a drop in the ocean AND the ocean in the drop.

If you want to change the world, you start by changing yourself.

“As above, so below; As within, so without” (The Principle of Correspondence).

If you are sleepwalking through life…

If you avoid walking the path of betterment, it leads to the constant seeking of meaningless pleasure.

It leads to empty pursuits and misplaced energy.

It leads to a life with no depth or meaning, where you miss out on the ecstasy of finding out what you’re really made of. 

If you love the people around you, think about this…

Doing the work

When I first realised that I had work to do, I was riddled with anxiety, my mind and body were malfunctioning, and I was redlining every aspect of my life. 

My head and heart were not cooperating with each other.

So I pursued information about what I was experiencing.

I discovered that I could change what was happening inside of me and that I had a DEEP calling within me to do so.

So the work began.

I traveled, I meditated, I exercised, I did hard things, I read, I wrote, I read affirmations, I did psychedelics, I did courses, I spoke to people, I listened, among many other things…

Along this journey, I have had countless moments where everything clicked and I felt like everything was falling into place.

Countless moments where I’ve felt like I am on the right path.

What is also true, is that I have had countless moments where I felt like burning everything to the ground and drowning in a pit of cheap dopamine

And all of it has culminated to exactly where I am right now.

The ups and downs.

The smiles and frowns.

Now I am more aware than ever.

More open-minded than ever.

More intelligent. More experienced.

And I genuinely feel like I’m just getting started. 

The journey takes courage.

It requires persistence.

It requires faith.

It requires love and patience.

It requires everything you’ve got. 

And it is the most beautiful thing you will ever do. 

I am so grateful for every single thing that has happened along this journey because it has made me who I am today.

Life is absolutely fascinating. 

Life is magical.

And life is also pain and suffering.

Life is waiting for your participation.

Life is waiting for you to hurl yourself into the abyss so you can discover the POWER your consciousness holds.

If you’re looking for a sign, then this is it.

Do something different today.

Step outside of your comfort zone.

Tell someone you love them.

Leave that job that is destroying your soul.

Whatever it is, do something that causes more of you to come to the surface.

Do something that causes the unlimited consciousness within you to GROW.

Do something that will help you figure out who you are and how you want to spend your time.

If you don’t know where to start:

  • Read
  • Write
  • Travel
  • Meditate
  • Join a gym
  • Go into nature
  • Practice fasting
  • Start a business
  • Do psychedelics
  • Practice breathwork
  • Work on your health
  • Learn something new
  • Get a coach or mentor
  • Do something that scares you
  • Go camping and turn your phone off
  • Listen to someone who has lived a long life
  • Talk to someone you love who will listen and help 

Your life is what you make it.

When you reach old age, you’re not going to wish you played it safe, took fewer risks, and watched more Netflix.

You are going to wish you had more cool stories to tell your grandkids. 

Go do some main character shit.

With energy,


Improve Your Health.

Expand Your Mind.

Raise Your Vibration.
