Completeness Of Self

This series is created from higher level awareness with messages derived from my connection to self & spirit. This is here to inspire and empower you to connect with your higher self, so we can transform ourselves and the world around us.

This note deals with self acceptance and grounding into the fullness of who we are. Intention: As I fully accept myself, I come into completeness & expand the power of my presence. Tune in to my Completeness of Self Guided Meditation at the end.



The process of self acceptance and coming into the fullness of who you are isn’t easy and is some of the greatest work we’ll do in our lives.

We may experience opposition and resistance that takes the shape of fear and discomfort but it is here to help us access and sharpen the abilities that we already inherently have. It’s here to help us access the strength and greatness that lies dormant within us, waiting to be unleashed into the world.

Fully embodying who we are is the first step in carrying out our life’s purpose, our soul mission. All we need to do is to awaken.

Awaken to what’s already there waiting for us, our own presence. This is how we begin to connect with our higher selves for guidance that will manifest what we need perfectly in our lives to move forward on our path. All we need to to do is tune in and connect. One way to tune in and connect is to be in the frequency of love–a state of loving energy. It is here that we can access the fullness of self and begin to feel what that actually feels like. Our outward reality is a reflection of our internal state and we are co-creating this collective experience on the planet. If we realize that everything within us reflects outward into existence, then we understand that in order to transform our surrounding environment and circumstance we need to transform our internal environment. We need to transform ourselves. In order to begin this transformation, we simply need to awaken and connect with everything that we already are. Connect with the loving energy, creative force and strength that resides within us.

When we begin to connect with our true self, we will “come up against” feelings of resistance, self judgement and non-acceptance. This is our ego/small self that has been fed energetically as it’s been in the driver’s seat while we have been on auto-mode, living unconsciously. This is completely normal, it’s part of the process and makes it that much more of a rewarding experience as we “overcome” resistance, self judgement and non-acceptance. You can choose to view these things as tools to make you stronger, building the muscle of spiritual intelligence.

“In Jungian psychology, the shadow, Id, or shadow aspect/archetype may refer to an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify in itself, or the entirety of the unconscious, i.e., everything of which a person is not fully conscious. In short, the shadow is the dark side.” Everyone has a shadow side and has acted from it and identified with it at some time or another. We have all played the victim and we have all played the perpetrator. We all have past programming to overcome and may have repeated learned behaviors from role models that have gone through similar things. We also have all been subject to past fears, conditioning and trauma that have dictated our actions and responses, instead of acting from a place of total presence where we access our inherent true self.

When we become the observer of our patterns, past stories and conditioning, they no longer hold power over us and our ego/unconscious state is no longer in the driver’s seat.

We become aware and awaken to who we really are. We realize which traits and behaviours we no longer need to identify with. As we realize that our past patterns and programming were rooted in fear and is not really us, we come into a space of love and acceptance. As we come into that space and see that those behaviors do not define us, we are able to see that they don’t define others either. We can see behind them. Beyond the painful or difficult experience and why it was there in the first place. Was this a beautiful lesson of growth? Was this simply a past pattern that we kept repeating due to past trauma, conditioning or family lineage? When we come into this level of awareness, we start to look at past experiences and interpersonal exchanges differently. We realize that people are simply creating and expressing based on their own internal state. It really has nothing to do with us, and underneath it all, we have the same unconscious pain and fears to overcome as we all come into our own self acceptance.

The more you embrace and accept your shadow side, the more you can accept others and the “wrongdoings” that they’ve “done to you.”

Once we accept our shadow side and the state of unconsciousness we’ve created and experienced our life through, that acceptance allows us to start to feel who we truly are and fully embody that being- coming into a completeness of self.


Living in an awakened state and in our completeness gives us access to our divine internal power source where we can access infinite love and abundance.

Being in this space and knowing that we are complete changes how we experience life. The reflection looking back at you becomes brighter. The mirror that you see through shines because all the debris has been cleared away. Your physical reality, relationships and circumstances are all seen with new eyes and you experience them in new ways. You feel empowered by the magnificence and beauty of all that you are. As you realize this is who you really are, you are in a continued cycle of accessing your internal well of love and abundance that is there for you and always has been. This awakened state is the presence in which you can create your life from.

As each individual comes into awareness and the power of their own presence, we become a stronger collective that is aligned with the power we’ve had all along. We become empowered in the trueness of who we are and our ability to engage as a society from that space.

I love you.

Be in the power of your presence:
Accept yourself deeply & fully,
and ground into the fullness of who you are.

Act from the power of your presence:
Commit an empowered act for yourself,
someone in your life, or your community.


The Collective Mirror

Notes From Higher Self is a series created from higher level awareness with messages derived from my connection to self & spirit. This is here to inspire and empower you to connect with your higher self, so we can transform ourselves and the world around us.


This note deals with the collective mirror, choosing love when met with hate and the idea that separation is an illusion. Intention: As I meet myself with love, I am able to see others & the world around me through the lens of love. Tune in to my Love Reflections Guided Meditation at the end.

Separation is an illusion. Everything we experience and everyone we encounter represents one or more of the following: a reflection of some part of ourselves, a part of the collective energy that we have co-created, or a part of the whole of society that has been held within the control system of fear for thousands of years. It is up to us to break this control system through realizing the power that we have within us and joining together as a collective.

Our experiences and reality are the culmination of an outward reflection of our internal state. When we accept and honor the reflection of ourselves in others, we realize that we can’t be separate from them because it is to be separate from our own self.

This is not to say that we are all the same, but that we are all unique expressions of the same divine source. At our core, we are made up of the same essence that manifests as different people with different lives, paths and lessons. There is a oneness but not sameness. We all still maintain our uniqueness. As we are all expressions of the same core essence of infinite love and light, when you feel separate from a person or a people, you are separating from yourself. To feel separate from a person or a people, is to have something that is fragmented within yourself. Any feelings of separation that we experience is a reflection of pain that is still within us. When this moment arises, we are given the gift of being able to become aware of it and release it through that exchange.

The more we completely accept and love ourselves, the more we will see others and the world around us through that same lens of love. This is one of the ways in which we can collectively bring about transformation, not by thinking the world needs to change but by mirroring the love that already exists within all of us.

I believe we are in a time of massive transformation that is bringing us into a higher consciousness and better way of being as a people, a planet and a universe.

As we go through this process, everything that doesn’t align with the truth of who we are has to come up to the surface to release. This is where fear and all its manifestations come in.

When fear is the leading force behind intentions and actions, it is oftentimes expressed as anger and in some cases, can lead to hatred and violence. A person in this state feels so threatened that they go into survival mode, a state of desperation where they can’t access their higher consciousness. They are projecting all the darkness they feel in themselves into their external reality. Rather than lifting in consciousness to their inherent state of being–love, they are being fueled by fear and expressing through it as they mirror their internal state into existence in their reality. What they hate is what they are. As they hate themselves and the primary fueling force is fear, then everything that is “different from” or “outside of” them becomes a threat.

Those that are acting from a state of fear manifested as hatred or violence need healing and transformation the most, which can be initiated through love. They won’t be reached through more unconsciousness/fear: judgement, hatred or violence. Even when that response is warranted, it will not achieve anything.

If we meet hate with more hate, we are feeding the fear force field and expanding it as a control system.

Most of the time people in this state of being also can’t be reached with logic or reason, but they can be reached through being seen and loved. Seen for the completeness of who they truly are, and seen for the love that they, too, can embody. The most transformative and courageous act is to love them. Love them from a distance, see them in light and see them for the fellow human that they are. That is how we can affect change, by helping others to align with who they already are by seeing them in their truest sense, a fellow human that has the capacity to love and be loved.

Seeing so much fear manifested as hatred, racism and bigotry come to the forefront from recent events has caused me to reflect on my own experiences with anti-semitism. Experiencing anti-semitism has helped shape my ability to love even deeper. As a Jewish woman I have felt the pain of hatred directed at me and my community simply because of our religious and cultural identity. It is something I’ve experienced my whole life and there were times when I didn’t feel that I could be Jewish and be accepted. I remember when I started public school and learned one of the only other Jewish kids had “denounced his judaism” to better fit in. For the first time in my life I considered what it would be like to not be proud of my identity, as this idea was completely foreign to me. Later in my early 20s, I had a boyfriend whose brother said, “at least I’m not f*%*ing a Jew,” when they were in a fight. I remember feeling an emptiness and deep sadness at once when I heard about what he had said. It was beyond my normal range of emotions.

When my grandmother moved here from Israel, she was sick with lupus in the hospital and a nurse was looking for her horns. My mother was furious, but my grandmother chose to stay calm and educate the nurse who had never met a Jewish person before. The woman was astonished when she realized Jewish people didn’t have horns and they were, in fact, people just like her. Just a few years ago when my younger sister was in Poland, she and her Jewish group had water dumped on them in the dead of winter, were called “dirty jews” and told that the holocaust never happened while visiting the remaining wall of Auschwitz Concentration Camp. The fury I felt for this was unmatched. This is my baby sister that I love and care for so deeply. I don’t want her or anyone to ever feel what that feels like.

As a child I didn’t understand what I had done to be so vehemently hated by so many people in the world, or how a culture that celebrates so much love and acceptance was the object of so much hatred.

I’ve now come to realize that I’m grateful for these experiences of anti-semitism because they have enabled me to more deeply empathize with my fellow humans.

I was able to transform the projection of hatred into love and empathy. The experience has allowed for my heart to expand, where I now have room to not only love those that love me, but also love those that hate me. I saw, firsthand, that reflecting anger and hatred back to them from my own pain and fear would keep the cycle going rather than break it. Fear can be transformed to love through love and higher awareness; fear cannot be transformed through more fear.

The more people that see the world and others through the eyes of love, the more the world will shift on a global scale. As we love and accept ourselves, we access the infinite divine love that we have within us and are able to give it freely and effortlessly because that internal well is always there for us.

Through the simple action of being in a state of love, we are contributing to a collective state of love consciousness and global transformation.

When we choose to align to love and experience life through this way, we are not only lifting our own state of consciousness, but we are lifting others and the world around us. When we see others through the lens of love, we allow love consciousness to be expressed through that joint experience. It is the culmination of these moments, interactions and individual states of being that when collectively shared, will bring about a shift on a global scale. It is up to us. No loving action or thought is too small to have an effect.

I love you.


Be in the frequency of love:
Love yourself deeply & fully,
and allow that love to emanate from your presence.

Act from the frequency of love:
Commit a loving act for yourself,
someone in your life, or your community.


The ‘We’ Mirror

We are reflections of each other, the good and the bad. As I meet myself with love, I am able to see you in love.

My Interactive We Mirror piece in collaboration with Anya Ayoung Chee embodies the We Mirror pillar as a visual representation of seeing yourself in another. As we completely accept and love ourselves, we are able to see others through that same lens of love.

Fellow humans are encouraged to interact with the piece and create their own experience of the ideas behind We Mirror, love and acceptance of self and of others.

We Mirror Pillar Launch & Screening at Tumblr

I recently launched Part I of the Four Pillars: We Mirror at Tumblr. The event featured a short screening from Artists Mirror, one of the series found within my overarching We Mirror Series. It was such an incredible experience to see the project come to life and to see people actively engage with it in a way that I couldn’t have anticipated. I had the opportunity to collaborate with Photographer Andy Boyle who took featured artist portraits, Artist Anthony Hart who created a human infinity mirror piece, and Artist KISSEY who curated sounds– and they collectively added rich, new dimensions to the project.

Andy’s portraits were projected on screens throughout the room, filling the space with visual representations of mirroring self love. This collaboration truly captured the beauty and vulnerability that the artists shared throughout our interview and film process.

Anthony’s artwork embodied that the love that we have within us is infinite and once we see that, we are able to reflect it into the world around us. The human shape reaffirmed that when we take the time to truly see ourselves and meet ourselves with love, we can then meet others with love.

The screening highlighted artists exploring the idea of mirroring love through their art and their life, in general. The diverse set of artists and creative thought leaders showcased that mirroring love takes on many forms and can be done in many ways. Watch the Artists Mirror Compilation here.

Featured Artists Jamel Robinson and Jonathan Mannion spoke at the event and emphasized the need to share our self love with the world, and led the group in a collective “I love you.” This exercise reaffirmed the importance of speaking love into action. Hearing the whole room say this in unison reminded me of our power and that we are the solution the world needs.
