How Lust, Heart and Focused Intent Help You Manifest Your Dream Life

How Lust, Heart and Focused Intent Help You Manifest Your Dream Life

Opening up is hard to do and the challenge of the Great Work is to stay in your process even when you want to hit the ‘eject’ button. Recently I traveled to Japan to deepen my study with this work and I’m finding the tremendous impact of that time continuing to bear fruit in my everyday, lived life. 

Focused Intent

A big theme for me in the last year has been focus, and I’m continuing to make inroads into the alchemy of that conversation. Our teachers say that everyday we should be working with the combination of lust, heart, and focused intent to manifest the reality we want to live in.

Where I’ve gone awry in the past has been around getting very excited about a variety of projects. Since I have many competencies and talents, and a drive to get shit done, I also have a valuable contribution to make towards them. 

So I end up stretching myself too thin through those commitments. By that I mean I become ineffective in producing results everywhere because I’m not bringing enough focus in any one place or project. 

Even with an aligned heart energy and sustained lust to produce the fruits of that project, without the focused intention I really can’t get anywhere with it.

To that end, I’ve been making changes slowly but surely. The Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Light has been holding the pace of my progress compassionately and now it’s time to rev up the engine of transformation and change once again!

Leaning in 

I closed one of my businesses in January that’s been fairly successful though not very glamorous over the years. That was hard to do. I didn’t want to and I knew I had to in order to realize and activate more of what I am becoming.

This act opened up a whole chunk of time for me to re-invest into my other projects that allow me to do my heart work in the world and fulfill the mission I’m here to accomplish with greater impact. Generally, I’m happier for it and may not be worse off for it financially. New clients and paid projects have emerged since then to allow for me expand into the work I’m destined to do.

A greater impact

I’ve been able to accelerate my learning and development to support the bigger energy that I’m pulling down to support myself, my family, and my community. This has resulted in more people stepping forward to realize their truth and express their unique divinity. This has also provided to me more opportunities aligned with my mission to express my unique divinity as well!

 So, when the going gets tough, remember to stay present to your mission (heart), choose where you’re at, and focus your intent on where you want to be to forward that mission (lust). The world needs you to do your Great Work!

Radio Show Debut! Shifting Consciousness | Thomas Chavez

Radio Show Debut! Shifting Consciousness | Thomas Chavez

Hello, everyone!


We just launched our new podcast radio show, where we interview spiritual teachers, healers, and community voices. Each person has a unique perspective on spiritual growth, wellbeing, and the emerging paradigm.


For our first podcast, we interviewed Thomas Chavez, the author of Body Electronics: Vital Steps for Physical Regeneration and Cofounder of The Compass Way. Thomas was one of Oregon’s most prominent naturopaths, and has been on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual investigation for much of his life.


During this interview, Thomas discusses the power each of us has to choose our own state of consciousness. It is a myth that we are prisoners of our minds and emotions. In a matter of moments, with conscious intention, we can shift our operating angle.


There are 3 main divisions of human consciousness:


  • Self-Protection, the state of fear and aggression
  • Getting Along, the state of social adaptation and tension
  • Grace, the state of expanded awareness and flow


Through vivid memory, we can tap into any state of consciousness, particularly Grace. Most people have experienced one event or another in their lives when they felt boundless love, earth-shattering awe, fathomless peace, or divine joy. The key is to recall, as clearly as possible, such an experience and bring it to your awareness as if you were living it now.


Thomas distinguishes between 2 types of Grace: Disembodied and Embodied. Disembodied Grace is pure, diffusive being. There are no limits, borders, or confines. It is nebulous. Embodied Grace is being centered in your body, as a unique personality, while still accessing the Sacred. You are conscious and engaged in mundane activities, yet in tune with an aspect of Divinity.
