Choosing a Creator Consciousness allows you to begin to see how our society is so built around a consumer society; we have just been conditioned for this behavior. Whether it's pharmaceutical drugs for any problem that you have in your body; we're conditioned to not listen to our bodies and just take these pills. Drugs, alcohol; you name it. Right now it's everybody with their smartphones; they're so addictive. Every time we give away our attention to these things, these distractions -  we're actually giving our power and energy to them because where our attention goes, our energy flows. - Charles Clay

Power Quotes From The Show


A Path For The Golden Age

"The whole collective right now with everything that's going on in the world, all this so-called chaos, is all happening for us and you can choose; are you going to keep consuming the fear which is the information that you choose to give your energy and attention? Notice how that feels in your body. I really commend everybody that's showing up and having the courage to dive into some of these emotions and learn what they can from this inner journey right now because that is actually helping heal the collective and amazing things are going to come from this. The whole world right now is on a path for the Golden Age and in order for that transformation to occur, it's going to be uncomfortable at times and we're all experiencing that in our own way." - Charles Clay


Are Mindset Hacks Overrated?

"Think about where your attention is going on a daily basis. Are they really going towards what you want to create; this list of ideas and things that you want to bring to the world before you die? How much energy and time are you giving those? How much time are you spending tuning in to allow more of those to flow in? When we come back to that natural state of inner peace, then we're in a receptive mode where we can receive those dreams, inspiration, and amazing ideas from Mother Gaia. Operating from that place is different from having to use a million mindset hacks to motivate yourself to get your butt off the couch and actually do something. Either way will get you there, I just prefer the inspired action approach simply because the quality of energy that I'm creating with is so much more exciting and fun." - Charles Clay


Intuition Is Medicine

"I always tune into my intuition; it's our own medicine that we are all gifted with. Sometimes it's harder to listen to it than others but with your intuition, you can navigate and notice what comes up on your radar. What you want help with, what you are sick of, and what aspect of your life you're ready to change. Then notice as those answers start showing up like puzzle pieces that start filling in. Next, really tune into the intelligence within your body and what feels intuitively expansive and going to help you on your path or is more constrictive and doesn't feel aligned. Really paying attention to those cues from your body can help steer you to the right guides, coaches, and direction on your journey." - Charles Clay
