Awakened hearts, Our Walk with Spirit of the Universe


We all know that moment when it just dawns on us that something has completely shifted. You know what I mean? That all of a sudden we are aware that our hearts have awakened and our walk is with Spirit?

And that is not a religious experience, necessarily. But it is a deeply
spiritual moment. A moment of incredible beauty and awe.


It’s like the phrase we use when we say its all coming together now.
That to me is how it feels. Only so much deeper. It is as if the all the
gorgeous quilt pieces we had saved for the perfect quilt now have found their corresponding piece.

And its heady. Along with this feeling there are no longer any boundaries. I am now connected to all I see, and to every thing that breathes.

I live without the burdens of external pressure or opinion. I am
walking my own path of peace. And it is both internal and external. I
live in gentleness.

While I was so sick, I really had to work hard to change my thinking.
I meditated daily, and did so much listening to different teachers.

But what I really found out was that, it was all in my heart and
hands. That my awakened heart was waiting for me to open that door.

It was there all the time. I just wasn’t sure where the door knob was.

But once I understood that it was all on me, that made my thinking
shift. I was the chief navigator in the search for this new walk of

And so began a journey of walking with the Universal Spirit and
living my peace as my awakened heart found its path.




So an awakened heart, huh? When we are in the state of heightened consciousness, we are awake. We see life differently, we interact with compassion, we hear with joy. And we make that decision to let go of all that does not suit us.

So living our peace becomes our mantra. We walk it and talk it. And live it to the fullest in every moment. We no longer shut our eyes to pain but rather offer simple love.

We do not need critics or categorical thinking. We are beyond that space of limit and floating in the inter dimensionality of expansive transformation.

These are not just words to me. I know you can hear that. This is how my life is now lived. And I want to share with others the beauty of this melding of conscious awakening.

I have to say for those of us wondering how hard this transition is? Nada. It is the simplest thing to do. Know why? Because it is simply letting go. That is the first step.

letting go
We let go of all we have thought and we walk into the joy of this present of now. Because I am not willing to hold on to a yesterday that did not bring joy or peace, does that make sense?

And we get addicted sometimes to the drama don’t we? But for me, that no longer serves. I do not want to ride that roller coaster anymore.

If you are at a place in your world where talking about letting go and seeking new paths might just be what you need. Have you been thinking about letting your soul open up and speak? 

Are you at a place where you know its time to speak your truth and let your light shine, but not quite sure how to get there?

I seek peace, or rather I walk in peace now. I am living my own scenario of what I think compassionate grace and love looks like.

Can you do this also? Ooh yes!

The question is, are we willing to be willing to step into transformation? Isn’t that a conundrum?

But it is so true. Our own sense of willingness is the ultimate door knob.
Reach for it please. It is life changing.

When we walk into the awakening, we are also aware of the connection to the expansiveness of the Universe. We find that our lives are flowing in a way that defies gravity so to speak. Because we no longer have to depend on what is our next step. We merely have to ask.

Umm ask? Ask who,umm, or is it whom?

We ask the Universal Spirit.

And that is however you decide to define it. The vortex, God, Allah, the Universe, the Creator. Mother Nature. It is all what resonates with your own inner truth.

Ahh, Inner truth huh?  And that is one step closer to our awakened hearts.

inner peace


So we have heard that expression so many times haven’t we? What does that really mean to us? To me it means that voice we hear deep inside our heart and gut. When that soft beautiful voice speaks. We listen.

I mean we really listen. We do not turn away. We give homage to that voice. It is our Inner Truth speaking. That voice is sacred.

It is the directive of the Universe guiding us to our joy and peace.

When we are willing to be willing, we allow that voice to have its lovely say. We never deny it. Because, well I cannot speak for you, but I know what happens when I do not listen.

Like those experiences when we are told, do not take that route to work today, but we ignore it. And of course, guess what? There is a huge traffic jam and we are an hour late to work. Yeah, that one.

We have all had that moment of realizing we are denying our own truth. And honestly the more we deny our truth, the faster dis-ease finds its way into our lives. So let’s make it easy on us, yes?

Listen to that voice. It is there for a very important reason. To show us our own inner beauty and truth and walk with peace to that palace of our awakened hearts.

Why deny that which is good for us?

the cycle of loving life
Because our little ego wants attention and demands to be heard instead. But hey, I have a solution for that pesky ego. Just buzz off! I do not need you. I have peace now.

And the best part of being in our own inner truth is that we can provide comfort and calm to others. We are no longer buffeted by external winds. For our own truth is the beacon that guides us. And that is compassionate grace and love.

So what does it mean to be walking with Spirit? It means,  as Mooji says, we divorce our mind and marry our hearts.

Pretty potent action yes? But that is how we live and walk with Spirit.


I very basic terms it means that we have allowed ourselves to be guided by this Universal love. We all know the term “being in the flow”, yes? Well we are in the flow when we walk with Spirit. We know it when we realize we are not being driven by our thoughts, but rather the beauty of our hearts. And it feels very natural.

Walking with Spirit means that we have given up our need to control but rather surrender to the path of heart centric living. We walk in peace and service and compassionate grace. What more could we ask of our lives?

Try this meditation to help access this walk with Universal Spirit. It is so very worth it. Life will change. In a way that makes you glow from the inside out.

awareness is life, awakened hearts


Being connected to the Universal Spirit is the willingness to surrender our ego and our thoughts. That is not in any way a loss, that is a huge gain. As our hearts expand, our world fills with a love that we have only dreamt about. Try this meditation twice a day and feel how your world changes. And please do let me know how it impacts you.

Get yourself into a position of rest. Whether it is your meditation pose or on the couch.

Once there do some deep breathing, At least 5 breaths.

Since this is about connecting try doing 5 OHMS. This is the basic vibrational sound chant that triggers energy to surround and move in and around your body. As you do the OHMs, feel how the energy is filling up your body. Notice how each part of you feels like it is vibrating.
Once you have completed the OHMs you might feel a bit dizzy. So take a moment and do two cleansing breaths.

Now that you have entered this place of vibrational energy, you are ready to open all parts of your body to the Universe.

Say this now :

I am entering the place of sacred connection. I am love, I am peace.
Try saying it 7 times and feel how your body is responding to it .

When you are done, take 3 cleansing breaths.
As you start to come back into your physical body know that you are completely connected in daily life and spirituality in your walk with Universal Spirit.
Stretch your arms.


And say a word of gratitude.  A huge word of gratitude. It changes our lives.

Rumi says, wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of you life.

I think you will be seeing a huge difference of trusting that you will now be led in the best interest of your higher self.
May it be. And so it is.
rumi our hearts awakened


In our lives, we hold the door knob and key to living and walking in peace. We can make this happen just be letting go and letting in the flow of the Universal Spirit. In this space our life becomes larger, more peaceful and the love just flows. There is a sense of huge expansiveness of connection. We simple move through with grace and heightened awareness of how we are all so very connected and responsible first to ourselves and then to others
This sense of awakening is the huge opening of our heart. It lets in the Universal Spirit to guide us. When we are in the flow of this beauty, our lives become filled with love and joy. Everything is so easy and filled with meaning.

  1. So beautiful, Ariel.
    I found your article calming and releasing. You obviously speak from personal experience and I like that. I felt the flow and the openness that you give. Thanks for the mental tips and the meditation.
    I am grateful for your expression.

    1. Hello Michelle, I am always so happy to see you stop by! Thank you. Oh I am so happy you liked the article. Yes, that is my new mantra ease, peace and just be. I love that feeling of such huge expansionism. It is priceless and such a gift. Let me know how those tips work for you please? In peace and gratitude, ariel

  2. I am learning to live in my inner truth. I am finding it to be a daily choice we make on how we perceive things. Someone may have said a jarring and mean comment but that is not the way we have to take it if we do not want to. We can take it as a open criticism taken how we please, or we can take it as an opinion of one person. Both depending n our choice makes the situation all the better and in the end their comment did not get the intended reaction. All because we chose not to engage with the negative behavior.

    1. Hello Brit, I am so grateful you stopped by! That is a huge lesson isn’t it? When we get that there is no longer a personal attachment and it leaves us free to grow and be loving. So yes, it always comes down to our choices. And that means to live and walk in peace or love, or smallness.. I always hope I am making choices that are in my highest interest and that leave a sweet taste of love. In peace and gratitude, ariel

  3. Hello Ariel,

    I always find your articles so helpful and full of good information. Your article today talks about working in the spirit of the universe.

    And then you defined truth as; “The vortex, God, Allah, the Universe, the Creator. Mother Nature. It is all what resonates with your own inner truth.”

    Please can you clarify that a bit, I’m a little bit confused about what you really meant by saying that is the truth.

    1. Hello Stephen, Thank you so much for your very kind words. Our inner truth comes from the connection to what we believe as our guide. And we have many names for what we think of as creator or God. Or the Universal laws. So that is why I mentioned all those names. We respond to that which speaks to us.does that make sense? Thank you so much for being here. In peace and gratitude, ariel

  4. Ariel,

    As a Christian, we call it the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us into all truth. You said, while you were sick, you really had to work hard to change your thinking. Isn’t it amazing that changing the way we think, affects how we feel? Your story is uplifting. May we all walk in love and peace.

  10. Hi Ariel.
    What a peaceful post. I have not tried meditation before but I have been reading a lot about it. To me it seems like I can’t get my mind to stop long enough to go into this peaceful state. On the other hand though, I am a very calm and peaceful person and have learned to listen to my gut and heart. Ever since I have started this it has not lead me wrong. Thank you I really enjoyed your post.

As long as you are walking your calm, I think you are indeed on the right path, yes? In peace and gratitude ariel .
