Airing into enlightenment


Venturing down a new path

Embarking on a journey towards enlightenment is like hopping on your bike in search of new trails and undiscovered features. Most of the time we tend to evade uncharted territory because it means facing fears—we’re comfy where we are thanks!

We deny our curiosity and the call to a challenge because it’s much easier to coast through life or cruise down flow trails. But if we take on the challenge of exploring our potential and the unknown, we can find enhanced experiences and greater achievements.

Trust your gut: When something feels off, it is


If it’s right, it’ll feel right

Why is trusting your gut so powerful? Because your gut has been cataloging a whole lot of information for as long as you’ve been alive. Trusting your gut is trusting the collection of all your subconscious experiences.

If you’ve ever felt uneasy or a sense of danger about a person or situation, but you were unable to figure out why, that’s your intuition talking.
