Imagine you’re on a narrow wooden bridge, walking across a large canyon. Behind you is a land of old stories, old paradigms and old energies. In front of you, is a land of new stories, new paradigms and new energies.
The bridge you walk across isn’t all that stable, but it’s the route you’ve found yourself navigating.
There is a part of the world that doesn’t have your best interest at heart.
The mainstream media, the pharmaceutical industry, the food industry, certain governmental organizations, etc.; most likely don’t want consumers to reach their potential, be joyful or experience freedom to their fullest capacity.
This isn’t a bash on these industries as a whole, but there are obvious observations that indicate the human potential isn’t at the heart of these industries and organizations.
Many are saying hard times and big uncertainties are in the near future. Others are saying they are already here.
People and experts will have their opinions and perspectives. But one thing rings true.
You can't control the outside world. Yet the outside world can affect you (if you allow it).
Many believe old systems are beginning to crumble and fall. They may be right, or they may be wrong. In any case, there is a way to navigate life moving forward.
If the world is changing in ways you can't control, what do you do?
You take ownership of your own journey and trust yourself with each step. No matter if the day looks gloomy or it's the most wonderful day. You trust yourself wholly and fully.
Life gives you everything you need in this moment, but sometimes it may not look like a gift until you shift your perspective.
If you’re on that bridge, the Old World is behind us.
When we look at the Old World, it can be easy to try to fight against it. We think that by “defeating” the old ways, we will win. There’s something subtle that happens when we fight.
Fighting against an old story still feeds into that story.
It brings relevance to that old story and keeps it alive. If we truly want to let go of the old story and old ways of life, we need to stop feeding it our energy and attention.
This not only works for you in your personal life but also for the world at large.
Remember, we’re on an old wooden bridge, would fire be the best tool for us?
Perhaps the best “tool” we have is our feet. To move forward on our Path.
To keep going, towards a specific trajectory.
What you place your energy and attention on, get amplified. So instead of "fighting" your old story, you simply shift your focus to your new story.
Yes, that’s easier said than done.
That's what this trajectory is all about, supporting you on your path. We will help each other focus on the way forward, not get caught up on the old story of the past.
We will hold each other accountable and continue to take the next step powerfully and boldly.
Let's face it, the last several years have taught us to Be more authentic and not hold ourselves back anymore. This shared and precise trajectory will be incredibly powerful and will help you reveal your true nature.
The byproduct of not fighting and not focusing on the Old Stories is they become non-relevant in your life more and more each day.
To be sure, we aren’t turning a blind eye to what is happening in the world. We are simply becoming more intentional about where we focus our attention and energy.
The Joyful Sovereignty Trajectory is the process. It is the bridge that helps us get to the other side.
TO HELP YOU CROSS THE BRIDGE, EVERY SATURDAY MORNING THE JOYFUL SOVEREIGNTY WEEKLY IS PUBLISHED. YOU CAN CLICK THIS LINK TO FIND OUT MORE. OR SIGN UP DIRECTLY BELOW.
During mid-2022, I became aware of a message that I felt within me. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but little sparks of insight and inspiration continued to come to me. At the time, it had no name.
Eventually, it became very clear that I needed to organize these “downloads” and begin to share them.
The “joyful” aspect indicates enjoying the full spectrum of life, even the so-called challenging stuff.
Yet, there was a missing piece, because it still felt a bit serious.
A few months after the Joyful Sovereignty message came to me, I begin to integrate this process with playfulness and gamification.
Understandably, because of the nature of the world, it can definitely feel serious. So adding a thread of playfulness and a thread of gamification into the process was the next move.
We’ll dive into gamification in further editions of The Joyful Sovereignty Weekly. To add to this point, this is important because what we create is important, but HOW we create it is just as important.
Think of someone planning a birthday party. The party is weeks away and they are stressed out at every turn of the planning process. They're grumpy and short with people. By the time the party comes around, they’re more relieved that the party is over and not actually celebrating.
I don’t know about you, but being excited about life and enjoying “the party” is where I want to be.
A lot of us suffer from perfectionism. So treating life more like a game helps us to let go of needing life to be perfect and being fine with being “works in progress”.
Family Leaders are the keystone in the coming decade. They will be the most powerful driving force for positive change in the world.
They will build in unique and beautiful ways. The Joyful Sovereignty Ecosystem will be a powerful complement for them to express.
The Joyful Sovereignty frequency will be embedded into the products and services, empowering humanity in profound ways.
There is no utopian vision here. The picture I paint for you is fairly simple.
Every human that intends to live a Joyful Sovereign life, is simply enjoying the journey of life.
Doing their best to navigate the difficult times (accepting them and coming to appreciate them with time) and truly enjoying the great times.
The bridge to “get there” may not initially be easy (especially for some), but it gets easier as we move forward (especially together). Hence the playfulness and gamification integration.
That’s why you leading your family to the degree that you feel is so important.
This New World that We The People co-create together is on the “other side” of this bridge we’re walking across.
As the weeks, months, and years go by, the Joyful Sovereignty Weekly and the Joyful Sovereignty Ecosystem that is being created will support you with tools, concepts, examples, stories, paradigms, and action steps to move forward.
With the Joyful Sovereignty Ecosystem, I aim to create a “container” to allow inner dialog within yourself, not to teach. I will not change your mind, only you can do that. I cannot liberate your mind, only you can do that.
What I can provide is a structure for you to create your own internal “lab”. The content I share, including editions of the Joyful Sovereignty Weekly, is intended to spark your own inner curiosity and dialog. What you do after is your own choice.
I ask that you give feedback on the following:
I am here to co-create with you. I don’t have most of the answers, yet I can harmonize the feedback and present a potential solution. That is one of my gifts.
Creating this ecosystem in a gamified way is important.
How you create something is just as important as what is being created.
Being intentional, and playfully creating a beautiful ecosystem of empowerment for yourself and your family feels like a great approach.
Instead of ONLY working hard and being serious about creating a beautiful life, we can integrate a level of play that resonates. Some moments are more playful than others.
The Joyful Sovereignty Weekly is a vehicle to share the philosophical lens, but implementing this way of life with action is also a direct aim.
I want to make sure this is very clear.
Sovereignty and Freewill are of the utmost importance to me. Whatever is shared is simply intended to be complementary to your journey in life.
At any point you feel an aspect, concept or message doesn’t resonate with you, please disregard it.
That part was likely intended for someone else :)
If what you read above resonated, there are a few things you can take action on right now.

Thanks for reading this page! Wish you a great rest of your day.
If you made it all the way down here (lol), I will share a bit of why I'm doing this.
In a former chapter in my life, I served as a Green Beret. I learned many skills and learned so much about who I was. Through all of the missions, schools, units and leaders that I experienced, one thing always stuck out to me.
“De Oppresso Liber” - Motto of the United States Army Special Forces (aka Green Berets)
De Oppresso Liber is Latin for “To liberate the oppressed”. A more direct translation would be "from (being) an oppressed man, (to being) a free one".
I have held onto that simple motto all these years.
Although the meaning of the Special Forces is more of physical oppression (and definitely psychological), I have embraced the mental oppression from the disempowering programming from society (and the Old World we spoke of earlier).
Free the mind, and allow it to be the ally it can be.
My life has led me to this moment of sharing this ecosystem with you.
So why me? Not really sure, but I am here and I’m taking action on it. I am simply living my story and reporting what I have lived.
I’ll share more of my story as the moment calls.
My approach to this can be illustrated by adding an element to our bridge example.
Imagine you’re not the only one walking across this bridge. In the most gentle and caring way, you are guiding your sweet, dearest Grandma across this bridge.
Your Grandma may not know exactly what is going on or see what you see, yet you are holding her hand and supporting her each step of the way.
That is why you reading this, being a Family Leader, is so important. Because without you, some of your family may not have the courage to navigate this bridge.
You have the courage.
