Your Journey

The process of contemplating the Truth of Who You Are daily,
leads the “little mind”, steeped in separation, caught in the misery of the world,
into an expanded view of the Self–the Higher Mind of Unity and Oneness,
which is freedom from the world and its misery.

You are a beautiful gift to the earth and all of humanity. This website is dedicated to your journey to Unity–to dissolving the lower, ego-self that causes so much misery and destruction, and to nourishing your ideals so that you may walk a higher path in Truth, Simplicity, Love, and Service.

Journey of Gratitude Begins January 6, 2021 and goes for 7 weeks. Join with others on the Journey. Register Here (and get 40% off!).



The cornerstone of this site is the WithPearls Consciousness Journeys, which have been provided here, free of charge, since 2013. The Journeys are 40-day spiritual contemplative practices designed to assist people in going within to discover who they Truly Are; inner work to connect with, listen to, and follow the Inner Divine.

The WithPearls Consciousness Journeys were inspired by John Randolph Price’s Prosperity Plan, which is found in The Abundance Book. There are twelve unique Journeys, each focusing on one aspect/quality/ideal. Here is a list of the Journeys, in order (though each may be done at any time):

Even years: Odd years:
Journey of  Heart Journey of Gratitude
Journey of  Purpose Journey of Courage
Journey of  Worth Journey of Beauty
Journey of  Healing Journey of Creation
Journey of  Abundance Journey of Freedom
Journey of  Fulfillment Journey of Peace
Journey of  Rest Journey of Rest

Imagine what the world would be like if everyone were consciously contemplating their own Higher Truth every day!

Either show up here each day, and follow along with the Guiding Thoughts and reflections, join with others in the class (click the link above), or contact me about how to arrange for a group with your friends or colleagues to Journey together.

For those of you who are new here, let me give you a bit of an overview. Each day for 40 days, we contemplate Guiding Thoughts, which are statements of Higher Truth, to lead you with baby steps into the Truth of Who You Are–your Divine Self. Then we write (or sometimes draw/paint/color/dance to) what comes up after that contemplation. 5 minutes or 45 minutes, 5 words or 500 words,  beginner or expert (and no one is an expert!).

On the first day, to begin, we write some thoughts about what the Journey means to us, what we hope to “get” or learn from contemplating the topic for 40 days. The second day is a brief dedication and commitment, so that we make a clear decision to accomplishing what we set out to do, and dedicate it to something greater than ourselves (like “the benefit of all”). Then, the next 40 days we write/create!!

The process of contemplating the Truth of Who You Are daily, leads the “little mind”, which is caught in the misery of the world, into an expanded view of the Self–the Higher Mind, which is freedom from the world and its misery. We then take this new Self-conception out into the world, our relationships, our work, and live from actions of the higher mind. This is how we create the world anew; this is how we heal the destruction that has been so embedded in our mutual human history; this is how we bring love and peace to the planet and to each other; this is how we be the change.

What People have said about the Journeys:

“[The Journey] pushed me to get onto paper what rolls around in my head, with some cohesion and coherency…and I am grateful for the anchoring which resulted from it…it peels back the layers of my life to get to the core of what I believe or what I want to express. This is where I felt my personal energy was directed this time.  ~Lita

“All of my Journeys have become a journey that will continue to the end of my days. Thank you so much for orchestrating the experience”. ~Mary

“I enjoyed the creative process quite a bit: the reflection, the composing, the writing of my thoughts. I discovered I had something to say, and it was worthwhile to ponder, and put these thoughts down on paper. ~Steve

“I enjoyed following along and reading the entries along with seeing the art produced. I regularly received a jolt of joy when I saw susanwithpearls pop up in my news feed on face book and was excited to click the link. Other times there was an aversion bc of whatever state I was in, which allowed me to see that shimpa and embrace my aversion by clicking on the link! I am an artist and have not been making [much] art recently. Following the Heart Journey has definitely opened up production… I have my paints out now and set up. I know I can use them and I do more often now…so thank you.” Annakje

  1. Well… things come to me alright. I don’t understand anything really but I always check Google if it wasn’t written before. In this case, the phrase “turns in to itself”… I found very few references on Google… one of them was you; the other was by Heidegger. Anyway, I love you all. Namaste.


    • Thank you for this. You’ve given me something to think about and research.

      I also found this quote by Boehme, which is quite appropriate for this site: “the self-consciousness of God is not a turning into itself and an otherness of the Son, just as it is not the otherness of that which turns into itself, or of the simple Godhead, but the contemplation in the Son is [God’s] contemplation of the latter as himself…”

      Do you enjoy the European philosophers and their contemplation of God/Spirit? Or are you more Eastern- oriented?


  2. what makes me feel alive is when we all are involved in the wonderful process of giving and receiving and no one is left out, or feels excluded. it makes me feel alive to include others. It makes me feel alive and to dance when I feel my own inner peace and power. What makes me feel alive is when my comment gets erased and I just try again bc what I have to say is important, and because I want the journey-host to be aware that I am here, too. Grateful for that side-by-side study and growth. Grateful for blogs: blogging makes me feel alive!
