You are a beautiful gift to the earth and all of humanity. This website is dedicated to your journey–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.
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 aspects of ascension these Journeys cover:
|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|
Completing one Journey is like going up one step on the Spiral of Ascension. Completing all 14 Journeys completes one full cycle on the Ascension Spiral. Imagine what the world would be like if everyone were consciously stepping up the ascension spiral every day!
Journey of the Heart begins January 4, 2020
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. For most of the Journeys, we then we write about 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!); however for Journey of the Heart, instead of using words to contemplate the Guiding Thought, we draw/paint/color or whatever creative expression you may choose. This is because the heart speaks it’s own language…so we remove “our” language and allow the heart to express itself through our creativity. To make this (perhaps) easier for you, the Guiding Thoughts are available as words (daily), but there is also an audio version available, so that you can listen to the Guiding Thought, and draw/paint/color while you are listening. I would like to thank Brad Vanlandingham for contributing these audio files.
Audio is available here. Just click the player and it will loop for as long as you like.
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 (proclamation) 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.
In 2019 I opened this site to Guest Journeyers. 2019 saw four new Guest Journeyers. These are people who do not have blogging experience, but people who know they are on a larger than this-life Journey, and who are interested in discovering and deepening their path through the WithPearls Consciousness Journeys. They also take the additional (courageous) step of sharing their Journey with others publicly, here. I have been absolutely honored to host these Guest Journeyers, and to watch and learn as people walk their Ascension path in their own unique way. Please contact me if you feel impulsed to become a Guest Journeyer.
If you are curious about being a Guest Journeyer, email me–let’s talk and see if we have a good fit. firstname.lastname@example.org
