“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

― Nikola Tesla


This is the page where I tell you riveting things about myself, in anticipation that you will continue to read this blog.

FYI – The picture above is me, yeah, I know I look shy and kind-of reserved but don’t let that intimidate you. I am also kind, open-minded and respectful which normally people find very very very annoying, but I’m working on it . . . you know being less genuine because the world right now is overflowing with good-hearted-people, like-me whom must be stopped! 

Without further ado. . . .

Hi, I’m Steph the seeker!

Welcome to my Reiki and Consciousness Development Blog.

If your wondering right-off-the-bat what type of blog this is (if the above sentence wasn’t clear enough), let me save you a few seconds of unnecessary scrolling, and tell you right now that this Blog falls under the category of:

Evolutionary Psychology/Metaphysics/Philosophy/Eastern Philosophy/Jungian Psychology/Paranormal Phenomena/Energy/Reiki/Universal Consciousness/Self Consciousness/Spirituality/Self-Realization/Independent Thinking/Critical Thinking/Freedom of Speech/Independent News/Lifestyle/Health/Wellness & Humor (we all need a dash of shits n’ giggles from time to time). 

A mouth full I know, but it’s that in a nut-shell. 

JIVING with my VIBE? Well keep on reading . . . .

I always wanted to create and start a blog, unfortunately in the past I’ve been too chicken-shit to actually commit to it, well, until now. What has changed? Well we’re entering the year 2020, and I will be turning 40! Two huge mid-life-crisis milestones which have me motivated to Blog instead of binge-shopping on Amazon. I know that age is just a number and to be honest with you the reality of getting older does not scare me, it’s the lack of time (or the illusion of time) to accomplish my dreams that triggers my anxiety!

Then I thought about how much I have changed over the past few years, what I have learned, what I have researched, the countless spiritual experiences that occurred to me and my husband, the pull to write and share these insights with others, not in hopes to convince or convert but to share for the sake of human expression. If what I have to say resonates with you great, if not, no harm done, move alone, plenty more Blogs to feast your eye-balls on.

So with butterflies in my stomach, I honor myself for facing my fears at the end of 2019, and I am ready to launch FINALLY this Blog on January 1st, 2020!  

Awakening In the Modern World is a personal development Blog. It is not based on any specific religion nor does it aim to promote any one spiritual school of thought, my blog will really aim to be objective, neutral, respectful and will encourage discernment. 

Yes, some blog posts will be illustrating my personal experiences and belief systems (which are subjective), some blog posts will be on subjects that will be difficult to reference  evidence or scientific facts; which will solely be based on the viewpoints of esotericism. The point is not to change your mind but to open it enough to witness a new perspective in order for you to come to your own conclusions, make your own internal connections, and to promote independent thinking. It’s okay if you don’t like all the topics I write about. We can still be friends — except if your rude or intolerant — that’s a deal-breaker for me.

Final Thoughts

Now that we are better acquainted, grab yourself a cup-of-green-tea 🍵, throw that plush blanket (you bought from  Walmart) over yourself, get really comfy, pet your fur-babies 🐱 (that are probably invading your computer space), adjust those glasses 👓 to ready your eye-holes for a good read, now feel free to peruse my Blog site with the wonderment of a child or the temperament of Ebenezer Scrooge (either way all are welcome here). 

Until Next Time Planet People! 🌏 💖 👪
