Simplifying Spirituality

 I am an ordinary woman who has undergone an extraordinary spiritual awakening. Because my life has been transformed, I am committed to assist those, like you, who are ready and willing to step out of their comfort zone and fully embrace their magnificence. Although I teach timeless wisdom, I offer it in a simple to understand and super-easy-to-apply way.

In this website, I gift you everything I know. And that is simply this: there are only two ways to experience life. One is with love, the other is through fear. One way is natural and unites us, while the other is learned and divides us. One is of God, the other of ego. One is based on Truth and the other on illusions. My desire is to help you become aware of the subtle, yet profound differences between these two perspectives, so that choosing love will become natural to you.

Please know that you are not alone. Although there are many paths that point to awakening, there is only one absolute Truth, and I desire for Truth to accompany you, on whatever path you are on. Empowered with this awareness, your transformational journey will be smoother, shorter, and yes, more joyful to navigate. Life is supposed to be fun adventure, and within us are all the answers to achieve this…Please allow me to be your guide!

Awakening is the process of remembering we are all equal in the eyes of God/Source/Creator. Curiosity will lead you to the door of awakening, and your conscious willingness and commitment to know Truth, will open it and set you free. I assure you, if I can awaken, anybody can, and together we shall experience heaven on earth!

You are magnificent…yes you are!

“Awakening is the gift God/Source offers to those who commit to the path of Self-Awareness.”  — Laina

My Crazy Bipolar Ego!

my crazy bipolar ego - pic monkey

Are you enjoying this bipolar  weather as much as I am? One day it’s spring, and the next winter. One day is dry, and the next wet. The high reaches 71 on Tuesday, and by Thursday it’s down to 28. This clearly reminds me of the bipolar nature of my egoc-mind: one day I’m happy, and
