Mindful Awareness

Awareness is all about restoring your freedom to choose what you want instead of what your past imposes on you.

Awareness is the cornerstone of the spiritual journey. Most of us, most of the time, are living out of our scripts and programs that were created by the time we reached age 6. 

Spirituality is a search for meaning or a search for a framework within which to live our lives. A life of awareness and examination of our decisions, actions, motives, etc. 

Making the unconscious, conscious. 

  • With awareness, we can make new choices.
  • With awareness, we can decide if the beliefs and patterns we learned growing up really reflect who you want to be in the world.
  • With awareness, change is possible.


Stress and the general culture we live in enables us to behave in ways don’t feel good to our true self.  

We call it “tradition”, “just business”, or “the norm.” 

Many things we may never have had reason to notice or question before now. 

Our evolution as a people has allowed our thinking to shift, expand, or change to the point where we are becoming conscious of what was previously invisible to us. What was “the way it is.” 

Grab hold of those moments when you feel yourself standing outside yourself pondering your old beliefs, your unconscious patterns or behaviors and expand.


In those moments, reach for the better feeling thought, word, or action.

This is how we evolve as a society

Awareness is how we expand our consciousness and create new beliefs, new patterns, and new behaviors.
