Brief and casual relationships have a profound impact despite their short length.

Brief and Casual Relationships can mirror ourselves back to us and keep us on track just like longer or more intimate relationships do. Every relationship is divinely orchestrated to help us awaken and become conscious of reality.

I can't count the number of times someone has crossed my path for only a brief moment yet they had something very profound to say or add to my life! It's as if God was trying to say, "Wake up Travis, you're missing it!" Then, after the encounter,
I would re-focus and get back on track again.

I think we agree to do these "Divine Interventions" for each other before incarnation to help promote each persons individual life path. This agreement also seems to supersede whatever consequences come with carrying out our agreement. For example, if the information you pass on is difficult for the recipient to hear, it could mean the dissolution of that relationship.

Who knows for sure why we are compelled to do and say the things we do. Only God knows the answer to that. What I do know, is when inspiration bubbles up inside me I feel I have little choice other than to follow it. These inspirations happen to all of us and we bring forth whatever message or guidance that is required at the time. Each of us does this in our own individual way with every brief and casual relationship we have.

Our Personality type contributes to this individual style we each seem to have.
Taylor Hartman's book "The Color Code" is very helpful in understanding our stylized differences that go hand in hand with our personality types.

I'm not talking about ego driven incessant talking, or giving your unsolicited advice, for those who simply like to hear themselves speak. I'm talking about Inspired Messages that your heart is telling you. In hindsight I've noticed that sometimes things are said before you even realize what you're saying. Many times I have had people come to me and tell me about something I said to them that had a huge impact on their lives and I never even realized that I said anything important at all when the original encounter happened.

I've noticed that Brief and Casual Relationships can serve another purpose as well. Since there is less "Emotional Attachment" to the relationship people seem more willing to speak freely and honestly, as long as they're not trying to "people please" or stay politically correct. This can lead to some shocking yet very impactful messages for one or both parties.

Like everything in life, divine guidance can come from anywhere, and many times it comes in where you least expect. Learning to pay attention to your Brief and Casual Relationships is another way to tap into these less obvious sources, that contain wonderful gifts just waiting to be discovered!

"Responsibility does not only lie with the leaders of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to do a particular job. It lies with each of us individually. Peace, for example, starts within each one of us. When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us."
H.H. The Dalai Lama

"Gloria in excelsis Deo"

"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."
Albert Schweitzer

"When I was young, I used to admire intelligent people; as I grow older, I admire kind people"
Abraham Joshua Heschel

"When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace."
H.H. The Dalai Lama

Casual Relationships

Brief and Casual Relationships
can be just as important as other relationships in their ability to guide us on our path.
Try not to take these relationships for granted because God uses them whenever we go off course or if we need a wake up call.

The Goal of this Website:

The Awakening Workshop's primary purpose is to help others transform their experience of life into one that is authentic and joyous by providing resources and personal examples to assist in becoming
self-realized and conscious of reality.

The teachings of:

David R Hawkins
Byron Katie
Eckhart Tolle
Taylor Hartman
have been fundamental in guiding us on the path towards enlightenment.

The culmination of everything we have experienced and learned
has led us to write our own book titled:
Manifesting Consciousness

A Personal Journey Through The Awakening Process

we can eliminate fear and darkness by shining the light of truth upon it.


Our workshops provide the "tools" and support to help you create a happy, peaceful life!

In sharing our experiences, along with the challenges and pitfalls that accompanied them,
we hope to bridge the gap between the message of great spiritual masters throughout history by showing how their teachings play out in everyday life.

Facing one's fears, insecurities, and suppressed pain, is a monumental undertaking,
but with help and guidance,
you will discover that no challenge is to difficult to handle and no obstacle is to high to climb.
