Welcome to Awaken Happiness Within
Welcome and thank you for visiting our website! We are so glad that you are here with us. This is the online home of Awaken Happiness Within – our community together. Feel free to reach out and let us know how we can best support you.
The purpose of Awaken Happiness Within is to massively increase the level of consciousness on this planet both individually and collectively by guiding people to discover inner happiness and understand who they really are. We use the butterfly as a symbol to acknowledge the transformation that accompanies this journey. Although some may think that this journey is arduous or painful, the butterfly reminds us that when the caterpillar is ready and has properly prepared itself, only a restful intention is required for it to awaken into is beauty.
I was afraid once. This fear froze me. I felt that I needed to conform to how my family and the world at large expected me to live. I felt trapped. I felt constricted. I was upset. I would overreact. So many daily interactions would trigger me and I would lash out in anger and frustration. It caused those around me to question who could be around me and whether or not I had any friends. I went through bouts of depression and considered taking my own life.
From a distance, my life seemed okay. I played the part. I had a good job. I was respectful to my friends and co-workers. On a deeper level, I was distraught at times. On this deeper level I was drowning and desperate for change. I needed something. I was searching. I was always searching.
Keri and I met in college. She has always been an inspiration. Everything comes easily and effortlessly to her. I used to ask her, “What color is the sky in your world?” She would simply float through life and everything always just worked out in her favor.
We got married and started a family. Life was wonderful and yet I still felt pulled down and constricted. I believed there was more to life. I never felt truly happy. I would get agitated over the most trivial household nuances. I would attempt to control every aspect of my life and be frustrated (either outwardly or even more severely internally) if something went in the ‘wrong’ direction. I considered leaving, running away or ending my life.
Finally, and fortunately, I began to question myself. I began to question my own beliefs. I began to ask myself, if what I had been doing for so long was working, then why wasn’t I happy?
At this point, I decided to take action. I decided that enough was enough. I decided to figure out a way to allow happiness into my life. I decided to make some adjustments in my life.
I began to bring light to the deepest and darkest parts of my being.
I had always been reading as I had always been searching. I was determined to create for myself the happiness that I desired. Then it happened. I had pieced together various bits of wisdom from multiple sources and began using it in my life in a very structured way, while holding Keri as my vision and guiding light.
Then the magic happened; I discovered for myself a way for consistent, lasting happiness and in the process significantly increased my level of consciousness and discovered who I really am.
At this point, I realized my purpose. Keri and I realized that our purpose is to share this information and guide others on their own personal journey to enjoy the life that they desire.
Our purpose is to awaken happiness within and to inspire self love so that everyone can live their best life, filled with peace, love and joy, now. Love yourself then love the world.
Whether we are naturally happy or we have to make some adjustments in our lives, each and every one of us can enjoy happiness, laughter, peace, love and joy. And once we have that, we can accomplish any other goal that our hearts desire, including: perfect health, financial freedom and fulfilling service (whether it is individual work, entrepreneurship or service to the community).
We are honored that you are here with us and are available to offer assistance in your personal journey, living the life that you desire.
Nick & Keri
