Having struggled with clinical depression for 9 years of my life from the age of 16 to 25, I learnt a lot about the ‘self’. Twenty five years old was my turning point – the point at which I hit absolute rock bottom, and then the point at which I decided that I do not wish to ‘live’ that ‘life’ any longer. Did I succumb to anti-depressants or any other type of mind numbing medication? No I didn’t – because even in my worst states I knew I was better than this. It took a series of events but most importantly discovering and facing my own barriers to be able to overcome them.

I now run two successful businesses, and am immersed in two incredible industries (photography and fitness). Since this awakening I have been continuing to learn at an exponential rate – not just about the self, but about the illusion of the world around us. The system, psychology, consciousness, nutrition, it is now a never-ending list. I believe that every single being has the capacity to become the optimal version of themselves, and that our collective consciousness can override the current systems of power in place in our world today.

That is just the base of my mindset. I could write a novel about my story alone but my aim in this blog is to firstly, keep up with the flow of ideas. Secondly, it is to help in the process of awakening for as many people as possible, in an effort to increase our states of higher consciousness, step by step, by firstly inspiring individuals to work from the inside out.

So much is possible, the world is not necessarily what you think it is, and you don’t have to be confined by the perception of normality or refined by the matrix around you. I aim to inspire, motivate and inform. Share ideas, encourage discussion, critical thought and be a catalyst to achieving optimal states of consciousness. Every minute of every day is an opportunity to better the self, help others and aid in the shift of power from the elite to the individual. We are the power.
