Awareness is a lot like ice cream…


There’s an unlimited number of flavors of ice cream -and awareness is just like that -it comes in an unlimited number of flavors. 

How did your awareness come?

Was it like blue, bubble gum ice cream and came as a flash  -a single experience that transformed your life -an expansion of consciousness in a moment? 

Or was it more like Madagascar vanilla ice cream?  Where a deeper understanding of yourself, within the greater expanse of the cosmos, came as a subtle unfolding, gradual, gentle and calm?

Or perhaps your awareness looks like my ice cream cone.  Layer upon layer of different flavors. Like the guanábana flavor I tasted in Costa Rica when an illiterate man, who taught himself to read, spent hours with me quoting Socrates and discussing Grecian philosophy. Just like the initial tang of the guanábana mellows out into ample creaminess, I was stung by my own judgement that a poor man with no shoes, would also lack intelligence -only to be followed by this sweet insights and substantial mind. Or the chia spiced flavored ice-cream I experienced in Puducherry, India where  I befriended my rickshaw driver named Krishna Murhty.  His is soulful with a unique spark.  Just like the chia flavor that has a specific and pronounced quality that doesn’t dwindle or mellow with time I and Krishna have remained friends years later. Offering me the awareness that the Divine is woven into all our “chance” encounters.

So, what flavor ice cream is awareness for you?

Creating Calm & The New Paradigm


This morning I watched the mist settle in the valley. It slowly crept south, inhaling the breath of each tree it passed.  A flock of brilliant white egrets glided just over the top of the misty layer, wings dipping into moist air, water droplets clinging to their feathers.  I realized this moment is a reflection of the Balanced Transformation ℠ I had done on myself.  Simply, creating a life where I could sit and notice such calm.  Where I could give myself permission to take moments in the morning to simply be, is representative of Being in the New Paradigm.  Having created an environment for that consciousness to exist in my everyday experience, is validation of Thrivable Transformation ℠.

Can you create an opportunity to experience The New Paradigm consciousness today?

So What is “The New Paradigm”?

You know, that’s a great question!  What is The New Paradigm?  Well, it’s really all about consciousness. Yup, I said consciousness.  You see, since cave man times we’ve (that’s us -homo sapiens) really been preoccupied with survival.  It’s not been till about the Industrial Age that many of us had the time and luxury to think about things other than food and shelter.  Well, that’s when, as a species more of us began ruminating on things like philosophy, spirituality and consciousness. But more on that later…

For now, let’s just look at where many of us are today in our own consciousness. (While you’re reading this, see if you can find out where you lie on this continuum.)


The current paradigm we are in, has a certain flavor of consciousness for many people on the planet.  For example, -does this sound like you? Aspects of your personality drives you -Am I making enough money at my job to cover the monthly nut? -house payments, car payments, babysitters -Am I happy enough at my job to slog through it another day? -Because I am a good person and want to provide for my family in better way than I had growing up.

Or maybe this sounds more like you…

I realize this current paradigm just isn’t hacking it, I desire something more. I might not know what it is, but I am looking!  I call this the Bridge. (Here’s an example of where to find leaders who represent Bridge Consciousness.)  It is the state of being when you know your everyday experience just isn’t working – you’ve done some internal work on yourself -meditation, self-awareness, Belief Work ℠ or balanced transformation -but you know there is still quite a ways to go to get to this new way of being that is slightly elusive.

And then there’s The New Paradigm consciousness.

Or maybe, this is your normal state of being…

Your work isn’t work.  It’s your purpose, and that’s not even it.  To say it more exactly  -you spend your time quite balanced  -friends, family, recreation and then, what others might call work you’d describe as “the act of being in bliss, serves all others, directly, simultaneously & completely -work is really living in JOY”.

This is the place -the way of being -that where all of us are naturally evolving towards.  Trust me, it’s not an endgame, simply the next stepping stone.  As I see it, the purpose of existing is the beautiful journey of simply, unfolding the inner petals of knowledge.  There is no end, simply experiencing -becoming aware of the next unfolding moment. So for many of us The New Paradigm is what we are evolving into, although it is only a single stone on our path.

Wether you call this new place of consciousness The New Paradigm, The Golden Age, the 5th dimension or the new era -it is where we are all heading.  It’s my joy to offer some guide posts along this path, some gems to pick up and enjoy as you move from whichever stone you are currently standing on, the current paradigm, the Bridge or The New Paradigm, as you progress in your consciousness’s natural evolution.

Offering my Joy as a Gift to You,

The New Paradigm is Here!

The New Paradigm is here!  That means it is time to create Balanced Transformation ℠, therefore you can transition into Thrivable Transformation ℠.  Yes, that’s right I said Thrivable Transformation ℠!  Let me define the word Thrivable for you…Here are some dictionary definitions:

thrive: to prosper; be fortunate or successful

able: having necessary power, skill, resources, or qualifications

So what is the New Paradigm definition for Thrivable?

Having the ability to thrive.  Creating the tools and abilities to live a life in awareness.  Where reciprocity and alignment are always being created -where the evolution of your consciousness and the consciousness of those around you is being supported and nurtured -where environments are created that support humanity’s highest potential & space for the Divine to enter your life and the lives of your community, spontaneously arise.

Here is my gift for you today:

Where/how will you breakout of the current paradigm? Will you create a new word (like thrivable) or create something else? How could this process be benefited if you let the Divine be part of it?

With Inspiration,

-Gina Maria Mele, M.S., in Service to you

as a Way for The New Paradigm
