The Fullness of I AM

When one is a student on the path to Self-Realization, one is taught to repeat the affirmation, “I AM,” as an affirmation that one is One with the Divine Self.  Early on, when I would try to think this affirmation in my head during meditation, I merely struggled with the idea that I could be in any way connected with the Divine.  The focus, for me early on, was still on self.

Over the years, I began to become more aware of Higher Self, as the brow chakra became 1-crown-chakra-sahasrara-dirk-czarnotamore fully energized, and then as the crown chakra unfolded the beautiful lotus petals.

With my Enlightenment Vision, I became more aware of the presence of the Divine within me.  The wonderful affirmation was given to me, “The very real presence of God is within me.”  (Alternative version:  “The very real presence of Love is within me.”)

Over time and with devotion and practice, I began to focus on the I AM of the Divine Self, instead of the I AM of the small self.  I was even taught, by Jesus and other Ascended Masters, “There is no ‘me.’  There is only us.”

Eventually, when meditating on the I AM, I came to awareness of the fullness of the I AM.  In other words, while meditating on the words, “I AM,” the conscious awareness that I began to experience is that the I AM is in everything and everyone.  So the I AM became, in my mind, everything and everyone around me as well as the fullness of the universe and beyond.

There is no limit to the I AM presence.  The truth is I AM.  All else follows.  I AM is all there is.  We are part of the great I AM of God, the great I AM of the universe.  You are, we are, we are all I AM.  Everything that is, is I AM.

How beautiful it is to be part of the vast expanse of I AM.

Love and Light,



About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
