In this video I address a couple of key topics that I feel are relevant for the times we are all going through.

I conclude the book with a recap about what an awakening is and what life CAN be like when you awaken and continue to work towards being love. When you surround yourself with love into your life you no longer live in torment of your past and you now have all the power and courage to create the most beautiful future. Life is a wonderful gift. You can be anything, why not Be Love...
There really is only one thing left to understand and that is whether you are willing to surrender the will of your mind and accept the will of your soul. You may feel like there is a new you after listening to these chapters. The old you is standing directly beside you with enough momentum to take over the new you. You will have a lot of sideways movement, backward movement, and of course, forward movement on your trek to enlightenment and this chapter clarifies that this is okay and expected.
As an artist, I have developed an intimate relationship with creation. Creating is not just what I do to make a living … it has helped me learn how to live. Working with my creative side has taught me a great deal about letting go and trusting. The nature of creativity is such that it draws from the unknown and manifests itself into the known. It is a gift given to us. Your ability to channel creativity will help in many areas of your life. It can help with problem solving and decision making. Every aspect of your life, from work to play and rest, can be enhanced by allowing creativity to use you. Working with creativity can become a way to live. In this chapter introduce some thought provoking ideas around the nature of creation, where it comes from and how it relates to God.
Meditation: Is it a practice or a study? How do we meditate? What are the benefits to it? Can anyone do it? Is it even real? These are all very valid questions that I know I had about meditation, mainly because I have heard so much about it and never spent much time with it. In this chapter, I offer some great tools to begin practicing meditation and I dispel many things that are misunderstood with the practice.
This Chapter is split up into two parts. First I share what the concept of unity means and how to bring a deeper sense of Unity with ourselves and God, as well as with others. In the second part I share several stories from my personal experiences with others and how we can create unity in our community. By looking at the qualities in others that we value and finding compassion and acceptance of others, we draw the experience of unity to ourselves and our community.
Have you ever thought to yourself whether you are truly living a life that is purposefully yours? Are you using your heart to guide your decision making for what is right for you? Do you ever hold yourself to old standards in how you used to be rather than what you can become? Instead of saying “I can’t” say “I will” and watch your world begin to change.
The baggage that you hold onto from your life experiences can be the very things that are holding you back from living a purposeful and love filled life. Why on earth would you be willing to carry the weight of your traumas on your back for miles and miles if they weren’t providing you with an opportunity to live a more peaceful life?
This chapter can change your outlook on how to operate within the relationship you have with others, and your partner. The material covered can help you deepen your relationship into a more sacred one where harmony and peace can freely flow.
Without question, this two-part section of the series will change your outlook on how to operate within the relationship you have with others, but more importantly how you look at the relationship that you have with yourself. You cannot possibly love another until you love yourself, and so with that being said the first part … Continue reading Chapter Six: Relationships Part one: Emotional Healing & Growth Through Relationships
If we spend more time in our minds being distracted from the moment we are in, how much of life are you actually experiencing? It is absolutely essential that we live in the moment that we are in. This is the only way that we have the opportunity to experience life the way it was … Continue reading Chapter Five: Awakening To The Moment
This is a fundamental chapter. Sometimes it can feel nearly impossible to choose love when we are put in a challenging position. But what would happen if you chose love more than not? You may be surprised how choosing love will radiate the earth around you.
Chapter Three - I Am Strong: How do we walk through our vulnerabilities? What lies beyond our fears? What happens when we pour devotion into our life? How do we become empowered? These are some questions that are answered in this chapter. This particular chapter contains some incredible wisdom to help us live beyond our fears and find ourselves in a far more empowered state.
Chapter Two: Beyond The Mind’s Desire: Do your desires serve your soul or do they serve your ego? It can be easy to become swooped up by the temptations that life presents us. With all of the luxuries in the world that are being thrown in our face, it can be easy to fall victim … Continue reading Chapter Two: Beyond The Mind’s Desire
Chapter One - The Mind: Did you know that you experience up to 100,000 thoughts per day? Most of us wouldn’t either believe this statistic or realize that our minds are constantly being bombarded with thoughts to that degree. To add to this, a majority of them are negative. In this chapter, we explore the mind’s tendencies, how to better manage and use our minds, and why it is so important to just be cognizant of the realities of what is going on with our mind day to day.
Preface: We introduce listeners to Ned Burwell through a riveting story about his struggles with depression which lead him to a suicidal state of mind but not before the words of a Doctor he had recently met poured into his mind which would be his salvation to his awakening. In this chapter I talk about … Continue reading Be Love: A Book About Awakening Preface & Introduction
With all that we are going through with Covid 19, Ned Burwell and Seamus Evely offer a message of guidance and hope.
This podcast is packed full of inspiration for the times we are going through. In this hour and a half podcast we talk about my career as a tattoo artist, finding purpose, living our dreams and some of my thoughts on the necessary tools I use to navigate my life.
https://youtu.be/kL4NIv0e57I In this 15 min video I talk about how to change your relationship with your emotions and specifically the emotion of anger.
The doorway of study is something that helps us in our discovery of self. If we don’t take any time to study the wisdom that has been shared by others, we can become trapped in our own limited beliefs. Learning what others have shared about spirituality opens our minds and sometimes leads us deeper into our own understandings. There is so much wisdom that has been passed down through the ages that to reject what has been shared would be a loss.
There are two sides of prayer. One side is that we talk with God and the other side is that we listen. In this podcast I will go deeper into these two sides.
The doorway of service aids us in our discovery of self as it creates many opportunities for us to learn, meet new challenges and develop strong bonds with others. We all have gifts to share and serve the world with, often it takes courage and willingness to embrace our gifts.
This guided meditation was designed to help people release trauma and to reclaim their power. I have combined two different healing techniques to assist people in this process.
In this session I explore the door of silence. In the door of silence, we discover peace and the true nature of our soul. The silence is not only where we find peace and discover ourselves it’s also a doorway into our relationship with the divine. In the silence we find an endless source of wisdom that we can access. Beneath our mind and emotions, a whole new world awaits you, all you must do is, sit quietly until the silence becomes a love song in you.
In this session I explore the door of surrender. Surrender is the ability to let our mind go. There are many opportunities for us to master this in our lives. When we reject what is, for a position in our mind, we remove ourselves from our peace and may be missing all the blessings that surround us. Surrender is a transient door that we pass through for many times after we surrender, we find ourselves in the door of silence or love. Surrender promotes grow and change, if we stay stuck in what we think we know we may never discover a deeper truth about life and the true nature of our soul.
In this episode we begin with the door of love. Behind the door of love, we make our greatest discoveries. Love holds the deepest wisdom of all the doors. Behind the door of love, we find ourselves at the heart of all the other doors.
In this short episode I deliver a message of hope and inspiration. It is my introduction to you.
