Following Your Dreams And Divine Guidance: Our Story

By Jelelle Awen


July 15th……this day is special to me because it was a year ago on THIS day that Raphael and I moved from the remote, off-grid ranch we were living at into the city here, Puerto Vallarta, to join Gabriel Heartman andKalayna who had already left and here working. A year ago this day, Raphael and I were crossing a pretty high river with the three dogs (one of them, Canela, tucked into an Ikea bag!), with all of our belongings stuffed into our van. I remember it so well because it was a huge movement out of our comfort zone…not knowing how it would be to live in town again after 18 months living so remotely (and the move to the ranch from Canada had also been a major thrust out of our comfort zones!!!!). Not knowing how it would be live all four of us together (we had to share a two bedroom apartment for a month or more)…we had $40 on us as we drove the two hours into town with some sense of income coming in from Gabriel and Kalayna teaching English online (which was the main reason we moved back into town), but no real idea how we would be able to afford to live here.

I had received a ‘PING’ from the Divine about six weeks earlier that it was time to leave the ranch. We just couldn’t reach and draw the community that we wanted to living there. We couldn’t serve love the way that we wanted to without steady internet access. I had spent 18 months planting seeds in my organic gardens and I wanted to start serving others again to plant THEIR own seeds to bloom and grow. I had written two books during our time on the ranch, went six weeks once without leaving it or going online….I became ONE with nature in a way that I had never before and had many awakening experiences there (which I share about in my book, Keep Waking Up!:

Parts of me had been humbled by the bugs, by the heat, by the simple house we lived in, by the rural Mexican locals who were so grateful for anything, by the rumbles and unpredictability of nature. We had experienced a swarm of flying termites (SO intense!), massive thunderstorms, scorpion bites, dog and personal injuries, and dramas with others living at the ranch too. We lived on $150 a month at one point and ate about 40% of our food from fruit trees and what we could grow in our gardens. We built a small hut out of clay, mud, straw, and sand, enjoying nearly every moment of it and amazed at what our own labor and VERY little money could create! This experience humbled me AND inspired me and gave me much renewed clarity and purified desire around my soul purpose here…… which wasn’t actually to be a gardner (although I sure was open to that one and parts of me would have preferred it!)

I kept seeing myself leading a group of women even though I HAD no women in my life for a certain phase there. I kept writing even though no one was reading it. I kept SEEING people living with us even though no one else seemed to be interested in doing that. And, I kept healing and working with my own parts even though I wasn’t serving anyone else in working with theirs.

It is amazing to feel that it was ONLY a year ago that we moved here to Puerto Vallarta, started going online, and began sharing our writings and videos and other offerings with the world. A year later, and we have other souls coming here with us living near us in community and others who are coming too for visits and to potentially stay here. We’ve been offering group calls since January with growing numbers of souls showing up for those and taking in what we are offering. I have had many sessions with amazing women since about September when I began drawing them. In this moment, I have six women that I am meeting with regularly and some have an interest to become facilitators in the future. We are offering a five day retreat in November with people actually planning to come 🙂 I recently got notice from FB that I have received 38,000 LIKES on my posts that I’ve written during the year! I have shared over 50 writings on Love Has Won, many writings also on, many videos on the Higher Self and Receiving Love You Tube channels, some with over 3,000 views on them……AND published a book (Sacred Human, Arising Wonder).

THIS has been a truly amazing year and it SHOWS, I believe, what happens when you follow your heart, guidance, your soul purpose, your reason for BEing here. When you are willing to let go of comfort zones and go into the unknown because you SEE and FEEL what you are meant to offer and you can negotiate with the parts of you that are afraid. It shows, I feel, what love manifests when you are in service of love and how the Universe supports the next and the next….bringing you exactly what it is you most need.

THANK YOU to all of you who have taken in my offerings in the last year…in whatever ways, means, and depths you have. It is an exchange that is VERY meaningful to me and I just see it growing, expanding, and deepening over time. All THIS happened in ONE YEAR…I can’t even IMAGINE what will happen in the next. Well, I can envision some of it, and I def. have some glimpses of the timelines unfolding and they are feeling really GOOD!! Trust your dreams, what your heart most WANTS, what your soul feels that you are HERE to BE and do. Follow all of that and it WILL come into BEing!
