Soul Desire Monday : No Need For An Alarm Clock My Passion Wakes Me

It all began with a book….

It was luminous blue. On the cover of it leaped a young women across the beach. Her skin was sun kissed and her white bathing suit made her beautiful golden complexion pop. I was instantly mesmerized by this image of her. This beauty, vibrancy, joy, and vitality, that she radiated so naturally. The photo captured her at the highest point of her leap which seemed to make her fly.

I wanted to be able to fly like that!

The cover of this luminously blue book , with that image, and the title “Ultra Health” spoke to my heart and soul in a way that just grabbed me and absolutely enchanted me.  I wanted to know more. So naturally I opened the book and began reading the introduction.

These were the words I read by Leslie Kenton that seemed to make time stop and the angels sing hallelujah! to my heart and soul :

Chapter One – The Master Game (Ultra Health by Leslie Kenton)

“ Did you ever wonder what it was like to feel great most of the time? To awaken in the mornings looking forward to each day? To work hard but have plenty of energy to spare at the end of the day for play? To look terrific and to feel good about yourself and your life. To know that you have everything you need to meet whatever challenge you may face? Sounds like a utopian dream? It’s not. It is something within your grasp – something called ultrahealth.”

This very first paragraph that picure and that word…..ignited in me such a deep passion, such a deep yearning. Awakened in me a soul desire, so strong, that it should never be exstinguished in the years that would follow.

That word : Utopia!  – Utopia – Utopia! Such power in one spoken word.


I was 14 years old when I picked up that luminously blue book. I was 14 years old when the introduction of this book spoke to me in a way that would never let me go. And I was 14 years old when I heard about the possibility of ultra health, feeling that certain way, the way I wanted to feel for the rest of my life. It was then, at 14 years of age that I began believing in Utopia with all my heart and soul. That wondrous way of being, that amazing way of living in the world, full of awe and daily magic. It was then, at age 14, that I began my adventurous journey to discovering utopia, and what should later prove as the initiation to my life purpose.

Today I know that this moment in time was a major happening in my life. And that this big, huge, fat, YES! that I felt resonating within me so strongly, was the fiercest, most passionate intention that I would have ever set in my life. So it is no wonder that 25 years later I am able to report back to you about ‘Utopia’.

I found Utopia by learning how to absolutely and unconditionally fall in love with myself, my body, and my life. I found Utopia by learning what it means to transcend happiness, transcend health, and transcend your reality. It was the biggest adventure of my life. It was not easy. I had to to rise above and go beyond normal limits. I had to triumph over the negative or restrictive aspects of myself, my life, and that which I was conditioned to be by my parents and society.

I had to heal my wounds.

Today I stand before you, inviting you into my community and asking you to join my tribe…

I empower women to help themselves. By identifying and healing those wounds that have robbed them of the experience of Utopia – of the experience of victory – of the experience of triumph.

I teach women today how their healing and sacred self care practice will ground their dreams into prospering reality.

I share with you today my very first memory of the power of true soul desire ignited and awakened. I invite you to join the blessed adventure of discovering soul desire and powerfully grounding it through harnessing soul fire, and applying soul medicine.

I invite you to fall in love with yourself, your body, your life, madly, absolutely, unconditionally, passionately, and fiercely.

You will discover joy, vitality, life force, peace of mind, and peace within, gratitude, blessings, and a deep meaning to life and your life purpose.

Balance and happiness will follow you wherever you go, no matter what your circumstance.

So this is me reaching out to you : Are you tired of feeling so numb? Are you tired of not knowing what exactly it is that is hurting you and keeping you from being happy?

Then it is time to change, my dear.
