A little caterpillar on a big oak tree, Falling in love with the hide and see, (finding the best spot for shade, blending in with the bark, making a small mark). Turning over a new leaf Or at least trying, adding belief. Tumbling from branches, hitting the ground, Life’s great adventure lies in playing around. (No creature could have been stiller when it came to pursuing the big dreams)?
Inching to crawl, Hearing the call, (Beyond words and thoughts, it was coming) Something so deep, A cry to evolve, a deafening weep. (A dance within, change was looming in place).
With another slither, The cocoon whispered, “come hither” Everything became s l o w, Sky and sight disappeared. (All was blank, in this blanket’s show).
Hugging its skin like gentle fluff, The cocoon became soothing, Breaking the warmth, becoming rough, Cold air brushed the new body – blooming. Like a flower that came to life, Testing its wings like they were petals, The butterfly took a flight, A new world went into view, The flapping wings appeared blue, Something ineffable, only divine, As if nothing could take away its sun-kissed shine, It floated over the trees, Tasting nature’s nectar, finally free. Ready to make another leap, Fear started to weep. The adrenaline of truly being alive, Was such a magical dive. Something inside was afraid fear would arrive, But through a smile of the eyes, And a breath of love, So many more surprises Awaited these wings delicately above.

In my eyes, skies are still warm In my heart, breaths are still surviving I search for meaning of all existence, as I draw lines in my mind. So many doors of emptiness surround me as time scatters, but even the eye has an exit. I fall asleep on my pillow of pain and hope to awake on a wing and a prayer. A fullness then gathers inside me, and I now feel anything but ordinary. I watch love nestle in every crevice of my being, I watch the stars pour their light into my veins. That something extraordinary is without form, boundless and forceful. A gentle whisper A ferocious cry, all at once. The sun sets behind the ocean of my dream, and rises over the sky of my vision. The wind blows through every thought in my collection. The trees and the flowers cradle my heart, while the mountains nudge me to grow. I’m in this infinite flow, or maybe I am this infinite flow. And I now feel anything but ordinary.
We are all puzzle pieces in the infinite puzzle of this life. Each piece is unique in their structure and color. But together, all these unique pieces create something bigger than their forms, something divine. The Universe in each piece reflects upon the other, because together, we are one.
We are each a unique wave in this eternal ocean of the Universe. Each wave with its own force, its own rise and crash, its own depth and its own soothing sound. But together, each wave connects into something much more ethereal, a forever intrinsic feeling. The light within each fragment of every wave shines, because together, we are one.
We are each a step on this endless staircase of destiny. Each step is equal, but special in its purpose, action, foundation and gentle nudge. Together, every step helps each other evolve and build something grand, something sacred. The inspiration to progress and the drive to climb this boundless journey is found within, because together, we are one.
We are each a magnet connected to this board of fate. Each magnet is distinctive in its personality, design, perception and strength. But together, all the magnets unite and present something deeper, something precious. The wonder and character through the vastness in each piece travels through many dreams, because together, we are one.
We are One. We are a team, here for a reason and living this dream together!! I’d so love to hear your favorite analogy!! Be fearless and free – Ace
One of the pillars of my character development and foundation-building in my childhood was loyalty. I always thought of it as one of the more simple concepts, something that’s an obvious trait. Through relationship ups and downs, growing internally and watching the Universe (me) design my life, I learned loyalty is a little bigger than I might have realized.
It feels so good to be loyal to yourself. When you know who you are in your bones, when you love yourself enough to stand up for yourself and when you believe so purely in your strength – life becomes so free. It’s the only way to truly live or thrive. You can’t authentically be loyal to something/someone else if you aren’t loyal to yourself. Something externally can trigger, question or test you, but, with loyalty to yourself there’s a certain peace within that allows you to see with open eyes and to rise above with an open heart. Here’s the fun part about being loyal to yourself — you automatically are being loyal to the Universe, because you are it and it is you; the Universe and you are one. The Universe is always loyal to you, because without even knowing it, there’s a place inside of you somewhere that always loves you for you; that place is called your soul.
In a few recent life experiences, I let loyalty roam around a little bit in my head. Bumping into experiences where it feels as though others are not loyal to us in ways that we would rather they be or if we feel betrayed or let down, it can seem that we live in an unfair, lonely, disloyal world. But, in reality, people can only be as loyal to us as they are to themselves. Throughout learning important character traits, and, together, laying foundational character work with my family as a very young person, I continue to realize over the years just who I am and how I function in Life and relationships. I know what I can count on from me and it guides me as I navigate even the toughest of situations. There is this ‘me’ that is guiding my choices full of what I can count on to show up as my character — and that is what is loyal to me and I to it — that force that guides me through knowing who I Am and who and what I am not and/or what I will and will not allow/participate in. Others meet us where they are at on their own perfect journey. The same loyalty we show ourselves is the loyalty that shows up for and with others. It is all a beautiful experience that is just as it should be along the way of embodying ever more of who we truly are.
When you trust yourself (the Universe), you can truly see this journey in a grander perspective. Grander perspective as in, more than this so-called human life — something infinite. This life is more than we believe it to be, we are the creators and everything happens for a reason. With loyalty to yourself, you start to see how everything truly connects.
I’m going to be honest, relationships are tricky. They’re one of the hardest things to life, but, one of the most rewarding! I believe in humanity, I believe in people, I believe in love. I care and I see you for you, so, I’ll be loyal if the stars align and if my intuition knows. There’s a piece of me that naturally sees people as being genuinely loyal too, and who knows, that could be true or not. The truth is, we’re are all reflections of each other, so maybe that’s just me seeing myself in another. People may not be loyal to you, they might not see you for you and that’s ok. Everyone is learning, growing and evolving at their perfect pace on their journey. I have loyalty to the Universe because I trust that all is always well and that all is meant to be. I have loyalty to myself because I am my best friend and I infinitely trust me through everything/anything.
I think sometimes the most seemingly simple things in life are the most powerful. And right now, loyalty is presenting itself a lot in my life. Through it’s appearances recently, I’ve paid more attention to the feelings that come with being loyal. Let’s just put it simply — it seriously feels so good to be loyal to yourself! You know when you smile and your whole aura changes, your thoughts change and your heart opens; it’s a similar feeling through being loyal. Someone can be talking to you, waiting for you to say a certain thing or to talk down / lower your vibration and you just smile and stay true to you, it’s so simple but such a BIG thing! There’s a knowing that comes with being loyal, it’s a knowing of your soul. And when you know your soul, YOU are truly fearless and free.
Here’s to being loyal to ourselves (the Universe) and basking in the magical emotions that come with it! Be fearless and free -Ace
I never thought I’d be able to follow up IMAGINE + REALITY, especially not this soon. I’m excited to tell you that I have!! This album is different but it comes from the same place of love, light and freedom! I’m so excited I finally get to share this full album with you, I’ve been holding it for so long and to release it to you guys feels, ironically, freeing!! This second time around, the videos are longer, I’ve made them differently, and I played around with special effects which really bring the words to life! And just like IMAGINE + REALITY, I poured my heart, soul, intuition and every ounce of my being into the entirety of this album. FREEDOM doesn’t have a format, it’s just 11 videos that flow right into each other. This post might seem long and daunting but, I encourage you to at least just watch one! Trust me, it’ll be worth it. I hope these videos bring you as much joy, inspiration, love, light and freedom as they bring me. In the coming days, I’ll be doing a Q&A about this album and take you behind the scenes. The process of making FREEDOM was definitely different than IMAGINE + REALITY. But for now, you finally have the album! I encourage you to watch them in order, just watch one, or watch the videos that stand out to you personally – the Universe will always show you what you need to see. Dive in!! And comment with your thoughts and favorites, I’d so love to hear!!

It is the beginning of a new week! Each week, each day, each moment is what we make it; our intentions, our thoughts and our attitude create the reality we live in. I encourage you to take a few moments and think about your dream reality for this week and then realize you can make your dream reality a real reality.
You have the power to live the life you desire, to be the person you desire to be and to achieve the dreams you wish to achieve. You just have to decide to do it.
Intention is useless without belief behind it. Belief is the spark behind everything, you cannot do much without belief. Give yourself the gifts of believing fully in your true self, believing in your dreams and not believing in your little voice. And always come back to believing in love. Love is all there really is in this world, the rest is an illusion. When you believe in love, you’ll believe in yourself for you are love.
The Universe is always supporting you and and bringing certain things in and out of your life. Nothing is a coincidence, everything has purpose and a reason. Don’t think in terms of “why is this happening to me” think instead “this is happening to me for a reason, what’s the message”. Your perception shapes your vision and your entire reality. So, when something seems tough and unfair look at it from a new perspective and understand the message the Universe is giving you.
You have all the tools within yourself to truly live with freedom. It’s up to you to use them.
More details to come! September 28th I’ll be releasing the album cover, title and release date! I’ve always wanted to put out an album and do it my way with what I love is so exciting. Stay tuned for more updates and amazing videos! -Ace
