Knowledge isn’t necessarily power…
Applied knowledge is power.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Think of information as the sign posts along your journey. Information you come across can guide you along the way, but you ultimately need to navigate yourself.
This is why I’m such an advocate of applicable practices and direct experience. Reading can show you the way, however you have to walk the path yourself to truly reap the benefits of the information.
If you want to expand your consciousness and harmonize the totality of your being, there are many practices which you can implement. Engage in some kind of meditation daily, exercise, do yoga, hike, get out in nature, express yourself through art or movement, travel, commune with plant medicine if that calls you…etc. There are many tools for “walking the walk” of consciousness expansion. It’s all about taking the information you learn and running with it.
This list is for those on the spiritual path, or those who want to get started on that path. Anyone who is a seeker or fueled by curiosity will find immense value in these websites. I honestly don’t read too much on the internet these days, as I’m focused on creating my own content, but this is a nod of gratitude toward some of the websites that have been of great value to me along my journey.

What Does Your Ego Look Like?
Reading can be a great place to start, but there is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
This is where PRACTICE comes into play.
Here’s one of the best practices available: 15 Minute Manifestation
Finding Truth for Yourself
Remember, don’t take anything you read as ultimate truth, no matter the source. Expose yourself to a diverse array of sources, exercise some critical analysis and form your own conclusions.
Absorb what is useful, discard what is useless and add what is specifically your own.
~ Bruce Lee
