My spiritual self and its journey began at a very young age, with a childhood that was spent in Bellingham, Washington.
The journey to evolve continues to grow and unravel throughout my life …
In the beginnings, I chose to hide my awakened gifts and abilities, keeping them quiet and largely under wraps. I was afraid of what people might think if they saw who I really was. Then all of a sudden, my inner potential seemed to blossom rapidly. It all happened a few months after I made a life changing decision. I gathered my courage and jumped on my very first plane ride, taking a solo trip across the ocean. I was flying far from my family, friends and my comfort zone to work and live in Maui, Hawaii.
Upon arriving in Hawaii I began to gain sacred knowledge. I learned about the Energy or “Mana”. It is one of the Islands sacred magical powers. Its teachings are practiced as a way of life by the locals.
Mana by definition is the supernatural force believed to dwell inside a person or sacred object.
The Hawaiian shamans known as the Kahunas tell stories about how each island is said to hold the balance of a different chakra. These stories tell the tale of how each island also has its own reigning god and that the Island of Maui is named after the Hawaiian Sun god. Since Maui is the center island, it is known as the heart chakra island, connecting the vast Hawaiian Islands chain at their core. According to the Kahunas the different islands each held a different energy signature. Each island represented its crucial part of the Hawaiian island chain. Since I lived on the island of Maui its energy resonated to me personally.
When a person is sensitive to these energies decides to “visit” or “island hop” to another island in the Hawaiian Island chain you can seriously FEEL the change of energy when you first step down off the plane. When you first land on solid ground, you get the feeling “That You Just Know”. That is the only way I can explain it.
You have an instant connection with the island and you can feel the peaceful and loving Mana from the island or in other cases you feel you should not be on the island at all. I have witnessed friends that did not believe in supernatural occurrences or anything out of the norm, step one foot on a different island and they could NOT shake an almost eerie feeling surrounding them that they didn’t belong. Many friends have explained the same feeling from the different island energy. This is due to the fact that the Hawaiian islands have vortexes of energy all around and through them.
In my journeys I have learned that getting in tune with these feelings have helped my spiritual awakening greatly. This heightened awareness has helped me be able to be open up more and even talk more about what I have personally experienced. In Hawaii many of the locals on Da islands are “open” to speaking freely about strange occurrences like, knowing things you should not know. Feeling things that you have not felt before. People stopping you and telling you something that you needed to know at just at the right second. The islands help you get in tune with your spirit guides and in return help you on your spiritual path.
It was right there in Maui that a seed was born deep inside me with an overwhelming urge that I wanted to help people and be a part of something bigger than myself. Searching inside myself I came up with an idea to spread the “Aloha” by helping people feel and look their best. My partner and I set out on this journey by opening a salon and wellness center in Kannapali, Hawaii, This was our way of doing a daily “Pay it Forward” to anyone that visited our salon and wellness center. For over 4 years I made a little difference in our clients’ lives by making each and every one of them feel special. Even if for a brief moment of time, while they were in the salon, it brought our clients joy and laughter to their everyday lives as well as the local community.
Even in doing so, inside my soul, I felt that it was just not enough and that I was missing out on what my real calling was in life. I mean how could my little salon have an impact on the world?? Then all of the sudden I was brainstorming with my friend and we came up with an idea that would change my life forever.
Every moment of everyday, we all have the opportunity to make a lasting impression, and to CHANGE our lives and the lives of the people around us. All of us have the power inside of us to make POSITIVE CHANGES for OUR FUTURE AND THE WORLD.
Wouldn’t it be great to motivate people from around the world to inspire others by doing a Random Act of Kindness and leaving a positive, lasting impression on the people around us?
We wanted to show people, through a random act of kindness, that there is love and hope in the world. We may think that we are just one person in the world, but to one person, at one time, we are the world.
We discussed making a positive difference and experiencing the true power of giving by making a decision to be the positive change to the people around us. We decided that together, we can all make the POSITIVE CHANGE for OUR FUTURE AND THE WORLD!
And SO the Karma Experiment was born …
The Karma Experiment Pay it Forward was created for the world, for every single person around the world, to be a part of and live pay it forward every day, however they see fit in their own life’s journey and the people they come into daily contact.
Along with its new vivacious life came the constant battle of letting go; saying goodbye to dear friends, family, and the local community I grew to love and cherish everyday. A new beginning was occurring.
The birth of my mission allowed the new, improved version of myself to emerge. The feeling of a major transformation overtook me and before I knew it I was leaving the life that I had created in Maui for my next journey.
As I am writing this, out of nowhere, the skies filled with the chirps of baby birds! They are all singing and playing, swooping down in front of my window… A constant reminder and confirmation that I am on my right spiritual journey. I am crying and laughing at the same time listening to the little birds sing. It is almost like the birds are outside singing…
“You did it Adrianne!!! Congratulations! You see, you listened within… see what you can do! We ARE all connected and we ARE with you Always, just remember to PAY ATTENTION!!”
I have happy tears streaming down my face and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to have such experiences to share with you and to be able to be a part of the CHANGE we want to see in the world.
