  1. Meditation literally changed my life (I know sounds so cliché but true). I do it everyday and I jusst posted a video about it on my channel! Will love if you come check it out!

  2. Are you wondering how to play your part in saving humanity
    and the earth? Here’s an idea 💡

    I would like to invite all of you to participate in a
    worldwide mass Meditation on April 4th/5th in your own home.

    This Meditation is called “Ascension Timeline/End of
    coronavirus Meditation” and it is being organized at the precise moment of the
    Jupiter/Pluto conjunction which is 10:45 am April 5th Malaysian Standard Time.

    Please anchor yourself in the new earth at the exact time
    and bring in the light and love from the divine source, through your body and
    into the earth.

    It will be an important moment when a truly powerful energy
    of Age of Aquarius will hit the surface of the planet so please mark your


    You can find the time of the meditation for your time zone

    Here the English Guided audio:

    This meditation is calling for all of you around the world
    to participate, regardless of culture, race or religion.

    Since we are all stuck at home during this period, why not
    utilize this time to contribute our part in this major healing event? (Every
    effort counts!)

    Let’s pray for our nation and the world as we eliminate the
    hidden enemy with Love and Light.

    Where thought goes energy flows! With much Love, we can do
    this!  🧘🏻‍♀💫

    P/s: Whether or not if the internet goes down for 10 days,
    as some expect the beginning of April, the meditation still goes on

    (Recommended to download a copy of the guided meditation
    audio just incase.)

    ⏰⏰⏰ Please DO NOT FORGET TO SET UP
    YOUR ALARM CLOCKS so you would not forget to participate in the meditation.
