My new single, Charge is out now!!! Check it out!!
Duality surrounds us and paradoxes are every where you look. This world is full of so much uncertainty, but for now what seems certain, at least in this world we live in, is duality. You can call it whatever you want, polarity, duality, or a paradox but you should always remember in whatever situation you are in there is duality. We’ll focus on the positive side because even duality has a paradox but when you’re struggling or having a rough day bring your mind back to the focus that everything is duality. In the struggle there is always awakening and a gaining of strength and courage, it just takes your mind to recognize it.
Love, truth, vibration and our minds are probably the biggest paradoxes right now. Let’s take a little dive into all four.
Love is the only real thing in this Universe, every thing else is an illusion. The frequency of love is the strongest frequency, I don’t think we realize just how powerful it is. When we are tapped into this frequency our hearts and souls are so alive and awake that everything becomes so clear. When love engulfs our beings and is the only thing on our minds we become our real selves and see the world through that lens. Here’s where duality comes into play: right now, the darkness and fear is making it really hard to tap into the vibration of love. They know how strong it is and how powerful love truly is, so they are doing everything in their power to take it away. I always say our thoughts and what we imagine becomes our reality. We need to be diligent about focusing our mind on the frequency of love. To do this we must trust and follow our heart and our soul, connection in anyway brings love so we must constantly connect with our higher selves. We can always blame the outside world for what we can’t do but in true reality, everything is our choice and we have so much power. Enough power to live the exact reality we want to live in the best possible vibration.
I don’t think there has ever been a year that brought as much truth as 2020 has. The truth is eye opening, alive, awakening to the mind and most of all freeing. When you dive into truth you will always find freedom. To dive into truth you have to be fearless, there’s no other way. You can only take your higher self into truth and that brings true freedom. When you live your life fearlessly and without your little mind tagging along you begin to realize all the miracles that surround you and your vision becomes oh so clear. But here’s the paradox: the truth will change you forever. You will never again be the same. To some, this is scary, actually, I think to all it is scary at first. But then there becomes a certain point when you’re opening your eyes for the first time with truth by your side and you realize, I was living a dream before, I was living a lie. You become grateful for the truth because it awakened your soul and the fire inside of you that has always wished to be free. Living your own truth, living your life with truly open eyes, and living your life with the fearless mentality that all/any truth only awakens you makes this life the best adventure you’ll ever take and every ounce of your being truly free.
We are all electromagnetic beings connected by the Universe and love. We all feel vibrations and energy whether we realize it or not. We all vibrate a certain energy or frequency whether we realize it or not. That is just the beings we are. Any and all vibrations hold power and lots of strength to them. Some of us can see this very clearly and others are just starting to. Love, light, truth, poise, confidence and actual freedom are some of the very best vibrations. They are all love but we can call them different things. 😁 Vibrations of any kind are so strong, they spread and flow outside of you creating your aura and attracting situations, people and experiences. That’s the paradox, any vibration is strong. Whether you choose love or fear it will illuminate loud and clear in your being and outwardly in your aura. Fear is always an illusion we create in our minds, if we ever choose, that is ok. For two reasons, one – we learn to never choose it again and two we can always choose love any moment we choose. Choice is such a gift because we have so much power that any and every choice we make becomes reality. So, always choose the vibration of love and watch your reality light up.
Our minds are more powerful than we know. Not only do our thoughts become reality but all of our thoughts are connected. Through vibration comes our thoughts and through our thoughts comes the life we truly live. Whatever we believe and whatever we focus on will happen. There is no doubt about that. The Universe is always trying to show you this but when your little mind gets in the way you can no longer see it. That’s the paradox, your little mind knows just how strong you are and how much power your have when you truly believe in yourself. It will do anything and everything to make you forget that. With all of this strength that you have inside your being you can easily choose to ignore that voice and to only live with your higher self. Again, it is a simple choice to choose to live in love and only from your true self. When you do this your life becomes your dreams filled with miracles, signs a plenty from the Universe and true peace and freedom.
That’s it for today! As I was writing this, someone reminded me that when we ascend there will no longer be polarity and duality for all things will be love. I know that is true and as I was writing this, I focused less and less on the duality and more and more on the solutions to it. So, again, I have to thank writing for truly helping me grow, for helping me realize my truth and for discovering pieces of my soul. I do believe that right now, in the world we are living in, that everything is duality but I also believe that when we ascend that probably won’t be the case. I encourage you to form your own beliefs, truth and opinions about this topic. I think in some cases duality is a gift and it helps you out of tough situations and in other situations it is a little bit of a trap. So, it’s funny, through writing this I’ve come to the realization that even duality is a paradox and full of its own polarity. 😁 Thank you for reading! Be fearless and free -Ace
Comment with your thoughts! I’d 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.Ace
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.Ace

Another day in this world, another day in you. You know 2020, a lot of people probably don’t like you but I really am so grateful to you. Thank you for waking me up out of my dream and helping me learn what truth actually is. Thank you for all the growth and versions of myself I’ve evolved into and out of. I am so glad you came around and were very very honest, it seems every year before you was just a lie.
As grateful as I am for you and all the lessons you’ve taught me and truth you’ve showed the world, I’m also a little inpatient with you. Good things are supposed to have come by now and how long are you going to wait before showing it to us? I know the answer and I know inside that more people need to wake up to this show of a world we live in. And we need to raise our vibration. But I’m so ready for it, I am so ready. Patience is not my thing as you can probably tell but honesty is so I thought I’d flat out ask you. I am also asking you to give me your answer; I know you’re the Universe and I’m close with the Universe so I know I’ll get something back. Either through a sign, a feeling in my gut or a flat out response in my head so I look forward to it.
I will keep doing my part, fulfilling my purpose for right now and manifesting all the amazing things coming. I know you have a plan and everything is unfolding just as it is supposed to but sometimes it is hard to continue to live on with all the lies. I believe in you and I trust you and I hope you know how grateful I am for all the growth you’ve brought me.
Author’s Note – I thought I’d share this with the world and with you; it is a little different from what I normally write. I think we all have ups and downs and I’m normally pretty up here so I thought I’d be honest and authentic and share something I’m sure we’ve all been thinking…where’s the good things? I know in my soul that good things are all around us and lots are coming – unimaginably good things. But sometimes your mind can be a little bit of a trap. The only way to escape is with honesty and truth so that’s what I’m doing here. I will share 2020’s answer (obviously 2020 is the Universe) when I get it loud and clear and we’ll see what comes through. Thank you for reading. Be fearless and free
As promised, the Q&A is here. I love when artists do this so you can get a taste behind the scenes of the albums you love, so I knew I needed to do one too! This album has so much meaning to it and each video has its own story to it so I am excited to share with you. And if you haven’t watched my video album IMAGINE + REALITY go watch it now!
How did you get the idea to do an album?
Well, I was making lots of videos and for some reason I wasn’t posting them. I’d made several food videos (you can now find them on my website in the Videos page) and 2 inspirational ones and they were just sitting in a file on my computer. And then Heaven & Hell (Ava Max’s debut album) came out; I’d been so excited for it. It’s one of my favorite albums. But I think that gave me the idea to do an album. I’ve always loved music and had a dream of making an album, not music but something, I just didn’t know what. I had an ah-ha moment and it just all came together so quickly.
How did the album title come to you?
Titles are so important to me. I know I won’t listen to a song unless it has a good title, same thing goes for reading an article or something. You have to engage the viewer and that one line, the title, can either bring someone to watch the videos or not. So it was a big decision but I’ve always been amazed at how much our thoughts and imagination creates our reality. Literally everything you think and believe will come to be in your reality. It just kind of came to me. I was inspired by Heaven & Hell and the way the album is split up (7 heaven songs, 1 in between, 7 hell songs) so I knew I was going to put my own completely new spin on it. I told myself to pick 2 things you can make a video about in between them. And IMAGINE + REALITY was born. I was going back and forth between IMAGINATION and IMAGINE. But imagination was too long and I wanted it to be in present tense. I also love those words in general, they have such meaning to them and everyone interprets it differently. I think it gives the viewer a lot to think about which hopefully makes them want to watch the album!
How long did it take you to make this album?
1 week, 7 days. I had two videos done before I decided to make the album but I made 15 videos in 7 days. That is crazy to me! I did not think I could do that but the creative zone is addicting and when you’re in it ideas flow so freely and you just feel in the mood to create ALL the time. Every morning I’d sit and make a video, maybe two. If I was too busy I’d come back and make another one after dinner. Video making is so fun to me, I’d always wanted to do it. And now that I can whip them out in an hour and have such joy in doing so is so full circle to me. I think also when I’m making them it isn’t like I am making them. My soul, higher self and the Universe are making these which is me; we’re all the Universe. But I mean I don’t feel like I’m making them, something is coming through me. It is like channeling. It’s hard to explain; it’s like my mind shuts off and I’m not thinking at all. Writing does that for me too which is why I love it so much. It’s fun when I feel like I’m done making the video and I go to watch it because I don’t remember the past slides. It’s like I’m watching it for the first time even though I’ve wrote and designed every single slide. There’s a certain feeling I get when I make these videos, I don’t know how to describe it but whatever it is, I love that feeling so so much. I’m addicted.
Why 17 videos?
17 is such a big number this year. It is such a powerful number. Numbers have more meaning to me this year than ever. I also knew I needed an odd number so there’d be an equal amount of songs in IMAGINE and REALITY and 1 left over for in-between. Since my release date was already on a date with number 15, 17 just seemed right. And it gave me 8 songs for each section which 8 flipped is infinity so it seemed perfect. It seemed meant to be.
IMAGINE or REALITY?
That’s unfair! 😝 I love all these videos so much but if I have to choose I’ll pick REALITY.
What was the hardest video to make?
Probably The Bridge In Between. I’d been putting it off because when I make videos I like to not have a plan and just see what comes through. But this one I knew needed to be in-between IMAGINE and REALITY which was tricky and I knew it needed to be longer since it is my lead single for the album. One day I sat down and just banged it out, it came together a lot better than I thought it would. It’s the journey of becoming fearless to imagine your dream reality. I know that journey very well.
What was the easiest video to make?
I don’t really like the word easy but the one that came together the quickest was either Illusions or Leap. Illusions I had a thought in the shower to make a video about time. It took me 40 minutes to make, probably less. And Leap I knew was going to be about relationships and for some reason I love writing about connection. I think it came together so fast because I love the people in my life and just thinking of them and how they came into my life, how we’ve grown together and how the Universe has made those relationships come to life is just like putting my feelings in words. It doesn’t take time, it takes heart. I just knew what to say. Connection is one of the most important things to me so I think that’s why creating stuff about it is so effortless.
What were the first and last videos you made for the album?
The first and last one on the track! I made Beginning To See before I knew I was going to make an album and it just fit perfectly for the #1 spot. When I was finishing making this album IMAGINE was done and I had two left in REALITY. So Amaze was the last one. It was bittersweet making that one but I was ready to have the complete and finished product.
Talk about Life I’m Living, it’s different from the rest. What inspired this video?
It was just a thought I had when I couldn’t fall asleep. I was like, “What life am I living, the one during the day or is that just a dream because I’m living the one at night?” I was having super vivid and consistent dreams at the time too, almost to where I felt like I actually lived it. That’s what sparked the thought I think. Since it was late, I just wrote this long poem in my journal and that poem is the words in the video. It’s a little darker and very different. I knew I wanted poetry in the album because poetry is just a part of who I am. I kept the font the same because I wanted it to look almost handwritten since I did handwrite it first. I normally don’t do that, this video and Becoming Energy were the only videos I wrote down first and then added the backgrounds and music. Usually I do it all at once but I needed to break up the creative process. I also feel like this video is super relatable and very honest.
Fearless + Free is that a tribute to your website?
I guess a little bit. The video itself is not about my website but purely about being fearless enough to be free. My journey to being fearless was long and taught me so much. And freedom came to me soon after I became fearless. I named my website fearlessfreesoul because that is who I am now, who I strived to be for a long time, who I will be forever and who I hope I can inspire people to be. The title of this video is a tribute to the website because I imagined having my own website for so long and for it to be reality now is a dream come true. So I knew I wanted to share that experience of imagining and then it being reality. That is what this album represents.
Harness My Power was your first video with a hip hop song, why?
I feel like when you think of harnessing your power you don’t think of a bright and cheery song. You think about confidence and the hip hop beat brings that vibe. Mainstream rap and hip hop is horrible now, it just sounds so bad. But the natural beat of hip hop is a part of music and something we all know. Just take away the trashy lyrics and inappropriate singing and the beat is good; it just gets covered up. And this video is all about confidence and finding your inner strength so it seemed right. I love the way it came out, at the time it was definitely something different for me but I’m glad I stuck with it.
You have a lot of analogies in this album, what is your favorite?
That’s tough. I’d have to say Movie Making. I think of that one a lot in my everyday life which I think is why I was able to make a whole video about it. The other analogies are a few slides in a video but this analogy is the theme of the whole video. I think we forget that we are the director of our movie and to follow our dreams and our hearts. Life is pretty simple if you think of it as making a movie. And don’t forget your co-producer, the Universe. The Universe is always there to help you and is always supporting you.
How do you title each video?
Well like I said earlier the titles are very important to me. It depends. I make the video first, put the music, download it and then title it once I’ve watched it a few times. Sometimes there is a certain slide that stands out and that’ll have the title in it; like in Harness My Power. Other times I title it with the message I hope people will get from it; like in Dreaming Harmony. Most of the time it just comes to me as I’m watching the video. I also like to title them sometimes with vague words, like in Depth. You can interpret depth in so many ways, so I wanted people to watch it because of that and also to show what depth specifically means to me.
How do you pick the music for each video?
As I’m making the video, the vision for the final product starts to come to me. When I’m done creating the slides, I know the energy or vibe the song needs to be. I decide either hip hop, chill or an up and down song meaning, starts slow gets fast or reverse. Sometimes as I’m listening to music for the video I’ll change my mind. It’s like a feeling thing, something inside of me just knows what is it. I can listen to 2 seconds of a song and know it’s not the right vibe for the video. On Fearless + Free I spent probably 45 minutes picking out a song. The video itself was quick to make but the song took a while to find. But on a video like Leap I knew that would be the song because I’d waited a while to use it; it’s a great song but it didn’t match other videos. Other videos if the title matches with the theme of the video then I pick it just for that reason, like in This Journey the title of the song is Multidimensional and it completes the theme of the video; everything happens for a reason because we’re more than just humans. For me, I think the music makes the words stand out so I’m very picky. I know the vibe I want and nothing will stop me from getting it. 😁
Galaxy, Quest, Dream, Vision, like Life I’m Living is different as well but for different reasons. Talk about that.
This video is very personal to me. It’s somethings I want in my future so I’m calling it into existence now. I’m basically sharing how you imagine what you want in reality, since that is what this album is all about, but in a very personal way. This video is close to my heart. It is different because there is a pattern which I’ve never ever done before. Slide by slide I start with Vision as the theme, then Dream, then Quest, then Galaxy and it repeats itself 4 times. These four things are really all there is to life. We are a special part of this Galaxy, on a Quest called life, we must Dream for they become reality and Vision, the way you look at things shapes your entire world. I love the song in this video too, it is called Grow so it fits in nicely. There is also 17 slides in this video and since it is at the end of the album it seems meant to be. There are a lot more words in this video because I have a lot of thoughts on each of these topics and because I’m calling things into my future.
What is your favorite video in the whole album?
Leap. The music is so perfect and connection means so much to me. That video is so complete.
How did you feel when you finished the album?
Full. Or complete. I felt so at peace and very proud of the work I’d done. It was a little sad to be done with it but it came together so well and after I made Amaze it just felt complete. Like I’d put the last piece in the puzzle and I was now looking at a masterpiece. It was hard though because I finished a lot earlier than I thought I would and I had to wait to post it for 2 weeks. I like to get things out when they’re fresh but I wanted the artist experience of holding on to your work for a long time until it is time to release.
Any future albums?
I think so. This was super fun to create and I love love how it all came together. It was also a lot of work and I think I’m going to let it sink in fully and enjoy this album for a little bit before I focus on doing something new. Although I am thinking about doing an EP in December; maybe. And maybe collaborating on some videos too, I think that’d be fun. If the people want videos, I’ll make videos. 😁

Comment with any questions you have about IMAGINE + REALITY
Daydreaming her day away, she stared at the magical sunset. She let her mind rest, became in tune with her heart, sat in the depth of her soul and tapped into her connection to all. She often wondered if life was just a daydream; her daydream.

Walking through a grassy meadow, surrounded by green, a blue butterfly flew ahead of me. It danced circles in the wind until my dreams moved on to something else. That was the only thing I remembered from hours of dreaming which I know is for a reason. I can picture that visual so easily, almost as if I lived it. I believe in dreams for I know they are meant to help us and everything has a purpose, a reason. Dreams have so much power that we aren’t even aware of; sleep is something I look forward to for I am fascinated by the signs the Universe provides for they are always sent with love to help me on my journey. The Universe does the same for you; just open your mind a little bit to see it.
Butterflies symbolize change; specifically in dreams they symbolize change coming or the change that has already occurred in your waking life. And maybe even both. I saw a blue butterfly and blue symbolizes calm, serenity and peace. Also in my dream I was in a meadow and meadows symbolize openness and a beautiful situation that never gets interrupted. When you have a dream, any dream, it is important to analyze every aspect of it for each little thing is a sign. In analyzing you do a combination of things; what the object/environment/person means to you, how it makes you feel and if you don’t know these two things that’s ok; it’s why we have the internet.
So, I’m sharing this dream because as much as I feel it is a message for me in my personal life, I feel it is a message for us as a collective. It is a dream that I am meant to share with you because there is a lot of darkness and big things going on in the world right now. But, there is also so much light and so many good things coming. That is what my dream was telling me; a change that will bring peace and calm providing us with a beautiful uninterrupted situation. I encourage you to look for the light, to notice the good and to align yourself with a high vibration. You only get what you look for so if you look for good things you will definitely see them. I promise.
Tune out that little voice and step into your soul, your higher self and your best vibration. Change is coming! And whatever you believe it will be, it will be. We each create our entire reality by the perspective we use to see the world. So, follow the signs, look for the good in the world and in each other and love yourself! Because without loving yourself you can’t love others and you can’t be free.
Dreams are whatever you make them. I write a lot about dreams, specifically dream manifesting, lucid dreaming, astral travel etc. The Universe is showing you things you need to see in your dreams; even if you ignore it or think nothing of it the Universe will continue to show you sign after sign. Once you realize that you can create the exact dream you want and that each dream connects to your life then you’ll start to feel your power. You’ll realize that you have so much power and your mind is so strong that the life you want is only thoughts away.
I hope this helps you on your journey! Look for the good things and be excited for positive change coming!! Dream big and realize your power. Be fearless and free -Ace
